6:10 am
commemorated this assassination? >> reporter: you're absolutely right, michelle. when i spoke with a historian yesterday, one of the things he told me that i guess i hadn't realized is that for an entire generation of people who lived in dallas, when they said where they were from there was an immediate stigma for a long time this city in some ways beared the burden and blame for what happened here. for 50 years dallas has been very careful and very aware of the reputation they had for decades. this year they say they have been very cognizant of that during the planning of the program and for that reason they want it to be somber, a reflection of this man's life. >> vinita nair live in dallas. thank you. 6:10 now. happening today a marin county judge could sentence convicted murderer joseph naso to death. a jury has already found naso guilty in the killings of four women in northern california and jurors recommended the death penalty. now it's up to the superior court judge to decide a death sentence could mean life in

6:18 am
it's kind of cool. >> and that rebate program has been around since 2006. it's really gaining momentum now with even the biggest boost in just the last couple of years. let's go get a traffic update now. it is a bad commute at the bay bridge. of course if you're just hearing b.a.r.t. service is shut down until further notice. a major computer glitch has shut down all trains since early this morning, and so a lot of folks are having to it hit the bay bridge as well. at first it was just the cash lanes. the delays are east of the maze, especially 580 jammed solid through 24. so, again, not another great option for you. cal train is offering a cup of extra trains. they're making an extra stop, anyway, trying to pick up passengers. that will be at 7:40 and 8:40 this morning. again, they're making an extra stop at the mill bray station. alameda oakland ferries for regular service. the next ferry out of oakland
6:19 am
leaves shortly after 7:00. ac transit is also a good option. so far we haven't heard anything about extra transbay bus service. sometimes they do that during b.a.r.t. strikes. if you're hitting the roads we're getting reports of a lot of downed trees, power line, branches in the road. anarchal chp wind advisory in effect for just about every bridge including the san mateo bridge, the bay bridge, and for some of your passes to the altamonte pass. we're also seeing unusual friday traffic through there and the livermore valley. that is your latest kcbs traffic update. for more on this crazy weather forecast here's lauren. some of the gusts down below in the valleys, 20, 35 miles an hour, up on the mountain tops you're seeing 50, even 65 miles an hour gusts. so the reason why we've got low pressure that moves through here yesterday brought us some showers headed into southern california. behind that high pressure starting to build in. the difference between those two cranking up the winds outside. this morning i think we'll see the peak of the gusty winds. some of those gusts as high as
6:20 am
70 miles per hour over the mountain tops. that will bring down trees and power lines in those locations. as we head towards the afternoon, things will start to subside. blustery outside to 16 miles per hour in the northeast. 17 in san ramon. 24 and sustained in vallejo. 24 gusting to 33 now in fairfield and north, northeast at 18 in san rafael. you can see reds and oranges over the top of the mountain. high pressure will be building in and i think this low will start to kick eastward over the weekend. that means as that begins to spread out we're going to see less wind over your weekend and nicer weather on tap for the bay area. this morning pretty gusty winds. this afternoon starting to calm down. still staying windy over the mountain tops and breezy out towards the coastline. i think the worst will come this morning. temperatures will be very pleasant. it will be much warmer today, well into the 60s into the south bay. 60s into much of the east bay as well. then as you head inside the bay a lot of 60s, even some low 70s in the interior valleys. we'll watch those temperatures
6:21 am
calming down just a little bit. the wind's going to subside and it looks like staying dry through monday and tuesday. chance of rain on the busiest travel day of the year next wednesday. sunrise time 6:58. sunset tonight 4:54. should be a nice weekend. >> great to hear. >> thanks. for the second time this week an oklahoma city thunder fan walking away with major cash, not to mention a standing o. our play of the day with jasy. >> and what's cool about your school you can e-mail your nomination, we may feature your school on the show. ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

6:56 am
historian and look at something close to 500 letters, letters written from everyday people into the mayor of dallas right after the assassination. >> the nation mourned the death of president john f. kennedy together as the events unfolded on live television, but the tragedy was also a turning point. >> there's a real sense when kennedy was killed that for a whole generation of americans there would never be a perfect union in the country ever again. >> these are all the letters that came into the dallas mayor's office. >> letters from around the country and world poured in after kennedy's assassination. more than 500 of them are part of the library archive in dallas. >> this letter is motivated by a feeling of deep compassion for you and the citizens of dallas. people are writing in either extraordinarily angry, furious, it's your fault, or they're writing in and saying the op sis. it's not your fault. this could have happened anywhere. >> some of the letters are also about lee harvey oswald, the man charged with the

president's death. he was gunned down by jack ruby two days after his arrest. >> dear sir you need a new police chief and new policemen. how can you expect them to protect the president if they don't know how to protect the prisoner. >> kennedy's murder made americans feel more vulnerable. >> when he died i think people realized that you could try. you could strive and do everything exactly right and the world could intervene in unexpected ways. >> in dallas the shock and shame have lessened over time, but the letters of 50 years ago still tell a powerful story. >> interestingly enough, the mayor of the time actually took the time to write back a lot of the people responding to a lot of letters that again, came from all over the country, in terms of the program for today michelle, things will get underway at 11:30 central time. there will be speeches, prayers, there will even be music. and at 12:30, the time that kennedy was killed, bells will toll throughout the city and they're hoping it is t will be
