the weekend well into next week. today's daytime highs already showing a slight bump in temperatures from yesterday will still be hanging out in the 50's right along the coastline, but elsewhere in the bay area expect a range of 60's for the most part parts of the peninsula actually into the upper 60's with side at 67 saying carlos at 66 yesterday you were low 60's in the south bay today a little warmer than that in the mid 60's. temperatures for the east bay, you guessed it some more 60's hayward at 63 degrees today san leandro oakland danville san ramon at 64. well are warm spot in the bay today that will be for you in fairfield at 68. close the spot to 70 degrees followed not too distant lee by sandra fell at 67 degrees today, let's get a look ahead at your next 7 days, this is a pretty important 7 day forecast because now it leads all the way to thanksgiving on thursday and as you can see there is no chance of rain in here, we're looking at sunshine and 60's seasonable 60's that is all the way through the forecast. inland
lows will get pretty chilly with these clear skies we have overnight lows often do get colder. that's exactly what we'll be seeing tomorrow morning another morning in the 30's. much as our inland spots are seeing as we speak. robin hey that's my kind of forecast sunshine and mid 60's, mild like a john thank you we're off to the golden gate. we're checking in on one on one which is looking good so it's not going to be a problem here for both directions were at the limit and nice and smooth. so far with 18 minutes nevado to san francisco. we're checking in on 92 is one of our busiest bridges right now so the trip from hayward off to the peninsula is filling in but it's not bad reds at 12 minutes and growing making it off to the peninsula here are some drive times and freeways around the bay area and they are hot spot free highway for picking up just a little bit 16 minutes antioch to concord. >>wide open on 6.80 south through pacheco conquered walnut creek danville alamo, no problems for the nimitz and no problems on one oh one heading north from san jose to

>>who know the city like the -pback of their hands, they kno the people they know the culture they know the flavor. >>retired officer lee dahlberg used to walk speak as part of his job on the force. >>we're going to be the eyes and ears up here and try to remedy problems so we don't have to get officers often be and take take your time. knowledge and background. that's pretty much what we can do to help every day the ambassadors will first check in with the central police station then touch base with the union square business improvement district who are happy to have the extra help they know the police officers but yet without the badge and the gun so it's it's definitely a softer approach it's it's re imagining police really the plan is to have a minimum.
>>i'm 19 and look out more women in charge of law enforcement chp has a brand new leader and she's making and array was sworn in as chp is commissioner this week making her the first woman and second african-american to hold that spot. ray is an oakland native. >>originally she said she would could be a dennis this is just a temporary thing and the chp and look at her now she joined the chp to pay for grad school. she said be here 2 or 3 years she thought 30 years later she is now in charge of the biggest law enforcement agency in the united states. while she's not sharing her vision for the chp just yet she does say that opening up the lines of communication with the community is key. >>we'll also be able to improve public trust in public release you know self policies procedures anywhere we can look and see if there's

what may watchdogs say is covid trash. these are just some of the ppe mask gloves and other plastic base trash picked up along the shoreline recently by the nonprofit bay keeper. ses spokesman say choksi shoes increase is really noticeable every time we're out on the shoreline we see more and more of the the gloves and that. >>the plastic utensils and takeout containers and whether discarded intentionally or bone from cars and dumpsters. >>one sees a lot of masks and gloves on city streets. the recent rains may be a factor in watching this stuff into creeks streams and sewers and all of our bay area storm drains. >>are usually connected to the bay or creek sent me to the bay there is no evidence that covid trash may harbor the virus. but much of it contains plastics and does not easily biodegrade. >>and it's not just masks and gloves bay keeper says it's also seeing a sharp increase
in disposable food containers and other packaging associated with take out another pandemic related food services, it's actually really unfortunate because right before the virus hence we're seeing a decline in plastic trash around the bay area that's partly because there are restrictions on plastic bags and coming up all across the bay area, the pandemic has also resulted in fewer cleanup efforts which means some of the covid rash could sink to the bottom but disappear in the weeds before it can be picked up in san jose rob fladeboe kron 4 news. >>one a getaway for thanksgiving travel if your answer is no you are not alone as so many people are staying home, i'm at sfo this morning and all have the cdc's reaction coming up in a live report.

the bay area and of course we have 3 reports air travel is significantly down this is usually the beginning. >>of the busiest travel week of the year, especially with kids out of school typically for next week families tend to travel today and throughout the week but because of covid-19 places like sfo they expect holiday travel to be only 25% of what it usually is and what it was in 2019 because the fear factor is out there as a foe says they are doing their very best but those who will travel that they have installed plexiglass at the ticket counters. they have but 15,000 markers on the ground that tell you where to stand maintain that social distance. they have hand sanitizer throughout the airport as well just to piggyback what you said about the cdc. weeks if not months ago they projected as many as 7300 americans could die from covid-19 during the holiday
travel starting today. through december 12th, but because we have seen such an explosion and holiday cases excuse me covid-19 cases that it's more than double james and darya they now project unless is considerably handled as many as 16,000. americans could die from covid-19 from now and so the week ending on december 12th. we've got a chance to track down. sfo spokesman doug a cull here's what he had to say on how you will be safe. according to him if you come through as out. >>the airport has been totally transformed to help achieve physical distancing we've installed about 15,000 physical distancing markers to write our airport ticket counter security checkpoints even baggage claim you can also expect to see clear plastic barriers in areas where you still might have a face to face interaction but can information bills or a ticket counter. and plenty of ways to maintain hundreds of
hand sanitizers and also the tsa now lets you take up to 12 ounces in your carry on. >>according to the cdc james, and area they believe covid-19 is passed by people who currently don't have symptoms of many as 30 to 40% of those cases come from people who don't have covid-19 symptoms at this particular time they're discouraging people even to travel by car to family and friends obviously stay home during the thanksgiving holiday which a lot of people of course are listening to normally james and darya you would see so many people at this particular time this is almost a tradition for me to cover thanksgiving travel is you can clearly see it is considerably down this year with only that one family and then just another car, pulling up at this particular time back to you interesting all right, thank you very much well. >>5.35 and hawaii is getting stricter with the they are changing their rules.
>>for visitors who don't want to do that 14 day quarantine starting this coming tuesday. you have to get a negative covid test result within 72 hours of traveling to avoid the quarantine and if you don't have that negative test result before you fly. then you do need to quarantine for the full 14 days when you get to hawaii or your entire trip. whichever shorter before that change you only had to quarantine on the island until the negative test came in. so now they're not allowing that they're saying if you don't have the test when you fly welcome to hawaii and enjoy that room you're not leaving it. >>these for california lawmakers are defending their trip to widen went to maui earlier in the week assembly members jordan cunningham. and heath flora and frank bigelow plus state senator
