and a little problem in the eastbay. it is out in alamo now, we've been tracking it, sounds like it started in walnut creek and traveling south bound into the north bound lanes on 680. chp is out there running a traffic break in alamo to catch this guy, in the meantime it's a dangerous situation if you're driving on the road this guy is driving pretty eradically and no big delays and we set our sensors so the thats the pro b almost, otherwise, ace train, it looks like it will affect all of the trains, initially it was just train number one but all trains could be up to 25 minutes late due to the signal problems, bart though, system wide on time with 43 trains all looking good on the tracks, caltrain service everything else reporting no delay. we'll take you outside for what it looks like right now on the roadway, if traveling the san mateo bridge, free and clear out of hayward, no problems out towards the high rise. the tail lates the commuter action coming into theastbay
problem free as well and the bay bridge pretty typical stuff this time of the morning. we know a lot of people may be taking a longer holiday week off, maybe taking a few extra days for thanksgiving just around the corner but so far your usual delay right now coming into san francisco with no metering lights between the eastbay and the city, and we do have president obama coming into town. he arrives at sfo around 10:30, first stop chinatown, should be there around 11:00 a.m. but whenever the president comes to visit there's extra congestion on city streets. that's your latest traffic, your on your forecast now. really, in chinatown? i might have to wack up and go see the president. wouldn't that be cool? folks around the bay area we are starting chilly in spots maybe patchy frost in the interior valley down into the 30s there under mostly clear skies early on and by the afternoon plenty of sunshine. temperatures are go to be mild outside looks like dry through mid week but after that and for thanksgiving, that could very well change. high pressure holding on for now but you could see a couple
weak systems off the coastline starting to en roche on the bridge a little bit. still dry weather continuing and probably the next couple days but then a cutoff low approaches the coastline on thanksgiving could bring us a couple scattered showers. temperatures around the state very mild, 66 in fresno. 63 sacramento, 51 this time of year in lake tahoe and 63 and mostly sunny in the monterey bay. i think our temperatures will be very mild in the south bay, 65 in santa clara, 64 in red wood city, eastbay temperatures could see some of those numbers moving well into the 60s in toward pleasanton, about 65 in dublin, 63 in pleasant hill. as you head inside the bay, you'll see hazy sunshine, as high as 66 in oakland and 63 degrees in san francisco. our north bay friends 66 degrees in santa rosa, and 63 degrees in san raphael. next couple of days we'll see a couple more high clouds come our way and then as we get in toward thanksgiving there's a chance we could see a few
scattered showers, doesn't look like a lot but have to watch this closely and by friday and saturday things clear out, high pressure builds in, maybe 70s by the end of the weekend. sunrise time 7:01. we'll be able to see sunset is at 4:53 but cutoff low coming our way possibly on thanksgiving could bring us showers. >> we'll be prepared now, lawrence. we've got a comet coming our way too or towards the sun anyway. >> we do and i'm excited if it survives. even if you got thanksgiving day off you might want to get up nice and early thursday morning when the comet ison will pass within 730,000 miles of the sun so if it survives the close call of the sun the comet could put on a pretty big light snow or fizzle completely like a lot of comets have in the past. best time to look is in the pre- dawn skies this week on thursday morning. should be fun. >> should be. a chemical out lawed for nearly 20 years still poses problems for some people and there are new concerns off a common drug given to pregnant
