david perry predicts tuesday wednesdy and sunday will be the busiest train travel days but says tickets are still available.nd unlike plane ticket prices do not increase at the departure date approache >>also super exib because we missed or train. you missed earlier train. i teach everything gets yeah, however, not every route is as direct as llen nasha's path to the bay area. some involve transfers and bus this erall. >>david says train travel could make for less hassle thisoliday. >>anso really a letting us do the driving heading up team to sit ba relax and start your the thanksgiving holiday on the train is a great y to do it. in sacramento. dickerson. and traffic. let's get the l word from robin what things are like today. one of today's going to be big giveaway to people trying to get out ahead of the storm probably be keeping a track on the get away freeways like one oh one right now earlr the think od you were that's what you need to do so you can beat the
racinos as we just said a lot of folks will be out there on trains driving as well flying so just get out there early and not tracking any problems and i think is just as we get closer and closer to thanksging the traffic on the roads will be better and better except for the getaway routes because so many people seeing the heavy volume that we normally see we're checking want to wanto cross the golden gate looking od right now probls here 19 minutes to roll south that's from highway 3in novato to the san francisco side from oakland to san francisco are checking the bay bridge and yes, there's a line a lot folks are still working to so not everybody has the week of or at least first couple of dayswe're looking at a backup spilling beyond 8.80 over crossing, it's under 15 minutes to make it and so we consider this a pretty good commute at least some not tracking any major issues for more to dublin wide open dublin to fremont nice and smooth. the nimitz minor crowding, it's only 24 minutes heading south from 38 to 37. we'll check more coming up in a bit but firswe need
check in on the forecast we have rain on the way jn well robi >>we are looking at that rain is hard to lk about when you got avel plans like so many of us do, but we do need it so ere's the plus side of it for sure looking at a clear and dry start your morning though so far as you've gotten outside this tuesday morning conditions have been good for us so do expect your morng commute to continue to be just fine, it's the middle of the day where things start to get a little bit not so fine across the bay already seng that increasing cloud cover ahead of showers that are arting to settle in along the north coast of the state around eureka some rain and once you head up into the high mountains abo the redwoods you do actually do have some snow starting to fall that snow and rain it is head down our direction and along with it some cooler air and some very windy conditions today so we're talking a loof factors here that will inrrupt what could have otherwise been smooth travel conditionhave you left this weekend. so i would recommend against travel today, if you can aid it.
thursday will be a little bit are going to be rough in days geneal and especially tonight into tomorrow. this is when snow begins to fall in the sierra winter storm warnings taking effect at 10:00am in the erra and it's easy to see why when you're talking feet of snowfall and alyou have to do is head above 1500 feet that's when you start to see those icy and snow conditions and with blwing snow and such windy conditions it's not going tbe a good recipe for heading up into the sierra we're also going to see the heaviest of rain tonig in the bay area right around commute time. from 04:00pm tonight on through about 07:00pm do epect some of her wiiest of conditions showers evening on into tomorrow to tomorrow being some colrain for the bay area and snowfall falling at its lowest of elevions in eas like lake county through the sierra on to the kern county mountains which as we know that's where i 5 drives up into as you're headi over the grapevine do be expecting icy and snowy conditions as you head down to
l a now as we make our waon into thursday condition should start to lighten up still going to be icy cold though some very cod conditions and dust icy conditions on roadways for iday itself, your best day forravels for shoppinbeing black friday because after friday's rain pusheback in saturday into nday making for yet another round of wet weather to be encountering as you make your drive he thanksgiving destination of course e lot the past few weeksnd fire now to some flood watches as rainfall is expected to rive in the north bay early afternoon watch out for debris flows in small area streams which could result the streams backing up and then i addition to the flood concerns we do have we do have very wdy conditions along with our rainfall. winds gusting into a range of 30 to 40 miles per ur. that's just complicates an already ick situation on roadways when you're talking as much rain as we are which could be well in excess of an inch of rainfall up the coast in our higher
slopes anywhere from a half an inch to an inch of raifor e broade bay area. so a lot of rain to be talking about this is definitely a system that is not a light o. it's full fledged winter weather ahead of us 50's for your ytime highs today that's coer than we have been and certainly cooler than yesterd even was tomorrow a little bit cooler yet and look at thursday d friday, not just our daytime highs but those inland evening lows, falling into the 20's. that's where you get that risk of ice forming on roadways. not your best avel days even when we do dry back out saturday and sunday brain returns again, so my recommendation if you have to drive do so on either thuray or especially on friday. back to you. coming up an 6 o'clock some didn't smell right in milpitas now the public agencies they're woing to figure out what the source of that bad smell is. this is the week at ko!...
