5:01 am
"today in the bay." >> you'll notice thick fog in parts of the bay area today, typical for the bay area but the south bay, this is i don't want to say a novelty anthony but it's pretty heavy this morning. >> we don't usually see fog this thick in the south bay. it's usually across the bay bridge and golden gate. you can see right across san jose. coming across gilroy and morgan hill. the entire south bay really covered in fog with the exception of sunnyvale and saratoga. once you get up to 101 and palo alto, things do improve. you can see visibility down to less than a quarter of a mile, not too bad. coming through the altamont pass, visibility up to ten
5:02 am
miles. it's really relative to where you are. you'll notice from our vantage point, expected to see some sunshine later on. 68 in the east short, 65 for san francisco and even 70s for the north bay. take it easy if you have to hit those roads right now. let's toss things over to mike. >> we're looking over here to 101 and 680. very thinking fog for those who might happen to be driving through that parking lot. the fog advisories from chp are for san jose, very unusual. we're watching for those conditions to be an issue. so drive slower than you might typically drive, even though traffic is really light around the bay. i want to point out the golden gate bridge as well, fog across here. this is not unexpected. back to you guys. >> thank you. new this morning south bay arson

5:04 am
silver creek park near neiman boulevard. there was an suv fully ungulfed in frames. b by the time we got there, you could see crews hosing it down. this is happening within the last few hours so very little information. that one again the third vehicle fire in san jose in the south bay, just a matter of a few hours, the first view being investigated as arson. we're working with the san jose fire department to see if we can get updates this morning. now live in campbell, stephanie chuang, "today in the bay." >> court documents are seding new light on the sexual assault charges against ray mcdonald. the woman said they were drinking at a bar and then she went to his home. she said she fell, hit her head,

5:06 am
>> we've been talking about it all morning, anthony, it's kind of pea soup out there. >> it's unusual to get fog this thick. it's all because we're right in between the mountains so all that cold air sinks down to the surface and we have seen lots of rain over the past week. and because of all that rich moisture in the atmosphere that's left behind, that's where you get the fog. you can see in the south bay limited visibility. but look at these highs. these are remarkable, in the 60s, we're going to get to the 70s today. we do have a storm system that's set to arrive tomorrow. over the next 48 hours, things will get a little active around
5:07 am
here. it could cause some problems, especially if you're doing airport traveling. tomorrow around 10:00 we'll see the showers moving through the north bay. by 1:00, 2:00, it does fall apart, as it usually does when these system come from the north. showers for the east bay, tri-valley and the south bay as well. santa cruz, that includes you. by 6:00 tomorrow, the rain is out of here and that goes for tahoe. we're talking about the rain and snow ending by 6:00, 7:00 tomorrow. overall, those showers will move through tomorrow and then move out for christmas morning. the system is actually sped up a little bit so the mornings -- for christmas morning we'll see some fog but i don't think we'll be looking at any showers like the forecast is calling for.
5:08 am
look how cold it gets as we get to the next weekend, 50s across the entire bay area. so enjoy that 70s and the sunshine, we we haven't seen a lot of. >> we haven't seen a lot of these either, fog alerts for the south bay. i turned it over a little closer to the camera itself. you can see just about a quarter mile. that's what anthony's talking about. we're looking at a quarter mile visibility. let's look at this shot from fremont. we can barely see over the rooftop where our camera is mounted. it is still very foggy there. the map will talk about the area right here in san jose. that's the tougher spot with the orange. there will be patchy fog in many spots around the bay. as we look from the emeryville side, an easy drive with low clouds on the san francisco
5:09 am
side. >> 5:08 right now. whether you're hitting the road, as many folks are or getting a flight, getting where you need to go will be difficult this yeek. a look at how mother nature could be playing a role in all this.
5:10 am
5:11 am
5:12 am
what every travelers needs to know, jennifer, seems like we're always taking on chicago and usually o'hare when it comes to air travel over the holidays. good morning. >> it really is a cross roads. it's a hub with the roadways and the major airports here and winter weather moving in to the area, not just here but across the eastern sea board could delay millions of americans between now and christmas eve. >> reporter: the rush is on. one in three americans is traveling for the holidays. prime time for not so frequent flyers visiting family and friends. 98.6 million americans plan to travel 50 miles or more. airports to watch today for delays, on the east coast.

5:14 am
don't travel a whole lot. live from chicago, back to you. >> thank you very much, jennifer. >> sony is now threatening twitter with a lawsuit unless is block as user that's spreading sony's hacked secrets money scott mcgrew is here. sony playing hard ball. does this lawsuit really have merit? >> well, we'll see. this twitter account belongs to a singer located in london. he's linking to many of sony's internal e-mails. we have no reason to think he has anything to do with the hack, he's just tweeting the results of the hack. sony not amused, writing to
5:15 am
twitter saying sony would hold twitter responsible for any damage or loss arising from such use or dissemination and asking for the account to be closed. generally speaking services like twitter are not liable for what their users post and sony knows that. >> let's talk the stock market. we'll turn to landon doughty. she's in washington. you're one step ahead of your travel plans i'm guessing, landon. >> that's right. i'm halfway to my ending point. but let's take a look at the markets. the dow is taking aim at the 18,000 mark today after closing a at new record high on monday. futures pointing to a higher open. investors -- there's a ton of economic data out today with reports on durable goods, housing, the consumer and final
5:16 am
look at third quarter gdp, which may show the economy grew more than previously thought this summer. the nasdaq up 16 to 4781. scott, back to you. >> good news keeps on coming. >> research shows that people who read from tablets before they go to bed doesn't sleep as good as those who read from books. that has to do with the lit tablets had less melatonin and slept less well. this only applies to the newer kindle that has that lighting. it comes down to the quality of the light and that signal to your brain that you're seeing sunlight when really what you're seeing is a kindle or ipad. >> we were talking about that, how people need to go back to those books with paper. >> known as books.
5:17 am
>> yeah. thank you. >> if you want it there by christmas, you better ship your gifts today. it's the final day fedex and ups can guarantee your package will arrive in time for christmas. both have hired more workers for this last-ment crunch and that your hoping bad weather, will not hamper delivery, which is kind of what happened last year. but we have an insider with insider information on that topic. and for it we turn to anthony slaughter. >> i think about this every time we get to christmas or thanksgiving and you get the mad rush. it's like this happens every year. it's no big surprise. plan ahead, people. >> no sympathy here. >> no, because we're working. let's talk about this fog that's out there. it may be causing some problems. if you haven't planned ahead this morning, it is really thick out there. look in san jose, we've got this really thick fog. it's unusual that it's that
5:18 am
thick at least in the south bay. it's not causing any airport delays to sfo. it's very isolated this morning. a quick check across the rest of the country. the thing about it, san francisco not fogged in this morning, unlike what we usually see. we've got a steady breeze at the coastline that's keeping the fog at bay. in the south bay that cold air sink right down to the surface. the south bay being enclosed by mountains, it's kind of like a bowl, right down to the surface. 71 later on in the north bay. we have a storm system that's headed our way of course. here it comes. by tomorrow we'll see the first showers arrive across the north bay by 10:00, 11:00 and a lot of that activity will stay across the north bay until the afternoon.
5:19 am
livermore down the sunol grade. a lot of that activity will be out of here by 5:00 and 6:00. the good news is a quick burst of rain. it's actually sped up. we're not looking at travel plans being impeded. so the good news, if there is any, is this system is really going to move in very quick and move out of here. so by christmas morning we'll see sunshine. i don't think it will be as bad. but look at those temperatures. once those systems move through, we're talking 50s for daytime highs. even 65 in san francisco, it's going to be real nice with the sunshine. let's talk to mike. how are you planning ahead? >> i'm repeating the mantra, you know we're supposed to say this, we need the rain. like you said, we're looking at the live cameras. this is the golden gate bridge. if you have friends from out of town, relatives who come in, remind them if you go to visit
5:20 am
the golden gate bridge it will be foggy. on the north side you might get a better view so stick it out. but right now very dark so it won't be very visible. here the bay bridge, a much clearer view. we see the oakland hills. a nice drive down the freeway. look at your maps. we're talking about a nice easy drive all around the bay. yesterday we had big problems coming down through sausalito. over here you're basically at speed. the only thing of note is this orange blob through san jose. we're talk about milpitas as well. palo alto, a look over here on the peninsula shows you how things are shaping up.
5:21 am
an easy drive here shows you there's not a lot of traffic here. >> patches of fog here and there. thank you very much, mike. a story of perseverance. a san francisco to and with down syndrome is getting national attention for not getting up. >> chelsea warner has low muscle tone but her family put her in gymnastics when she was a young girl. she loved it so much, he hasn't looked back since. >> she probably competed for three years and came in last place every time and she didn't care. then there did come a time where she did understand what the low score meant. then became the whole new journey, telling her this is what you have to do if you want to earn a medal, that you have to work harder. >> she'll be on the "today"
5:22 am
show, looking at people whose strength and determination help them achieve.
5:23 am
5:24 am
you're watching "today in the bay." >> the time now is 5:24 this tuesday morning. you're looking live out at san francisco. no fog in sight but a different story in the south bay. quite patchy on 101 if you're heading down that way. >> okay, mr. christmas, heard of him? >> yeah. >> word on the street is he's calling it quits. >> we're not talking about santa claus. but bruce has put lights on his home for 36 years. health issues have forced him to say this will be his last year.
5:25 am
hundreds of his names have come out to say, hey, mr. christmas, thank you. >> they all came out in force and really showed me what a community spirit is like. >> the lights will stay on until january 2nd. so if you want to check them out, his home is located on the 5200 block of olive drive in concord. it's not far from kirker pass road. >> check out a little piece of history while it's still there. >> speaking of the holidays, some inhabitants of the zoo in seoul are celebrating their first christmas in style. >> the lion and tiger cubs got dressed up in santa hats. they received christmas-themed toys and decorations. >> everybody, feline and everybody is getting into the spirit of things. 5:25. let's check in with anthony who is figuring out what's going on outside.

5:31 am
francisco, no problems right now. once you hit about 7:00 as the sun rises, you get all of that cold air that sinks down to the surface and that's how you get that fog with radiational cooling. 70s for the south bay today, 65 in san francisco later on. let's see how the road are shaping up. >> they showed that video of 87 -- by the way, that want me either who did the filming. visibility is an issue now. tougher to see the glow of lights. your exits will come up on by surprise. slow down, it will give you more time to see those exits. a very light volume of traffic on the golden gate bridge. the fog will require to you slow down. from the bay bridge, volume is building but there's a big patch

5:33 am
one about 12 miles away in east san jose at silver creek by silver creek valley road. there was an suv at one point fully engulfed in frames, but by the time we got there, fire crews were hosing it down. all you could see was a shell, a skeleton of the frame. so far that fire is not being investigated as arson at this point. san jose fire department saying there's no link thus far between the first two vehicle fires. san jose police are also investigating the fires. >> stephanie, thank you. >> this morning on the national front we're learning one of the new york city plefrs murdered in an ambush was just one hour away from becoming a certified chaplain. officer rafael ramos was

>> well, good morning. in response to our six-month-long investigation, state lawmakers passed and governor brown signed into law a new state law here in california that requires state officials to post public safety information record for day care centers online. also, parents can easily find that information and make good decisions. this fall the federal government passed a new law that -- our investigation uncovered under current law here in california, the stay only inspects day cares once every five years. that would have o to chang or the state could risk losing more than $7 million in federal grant money. they say getting these inspection reports online is a huge first step in improving child care here in california.

5:45 am

5:46 am
vantage point. you'll notice cloud, fogs that will be with us again. by 11:00 tomorrow morning, that's when the first showers will start to fall across the north bay. i think the rain will stay concentrated for tomorrow morning. in you're doing any traveling perhaps out of town, headed up toward sacramento or over towards tahoe, rain and snow, they have a winter storm warning posted for 3 to 6 inches above 4,000 feet. use caution if you're traveling that way. by 6:00, tahoe will be clear. that drive up there will be clear as well, anywhere across the bay area for that matter. things will start to dry out. that means a dry christmas morning. the system has sped up just a little bit. we'll see a little bit of fog, a little cloud cover but not too bad. look at these temperatures,
5:47 am
though. we go from 70 today to 59 in san jose. look at that overnight low in san jose. can you see that? 39 degrees christmas night. it's going to be chilly once this cold front goes through. let see how that holiday travel is shaping up. >> it's. >> let's show you that tri-valley because there is that build out of the at more and a little build southbound 680 but no big deal. this is a lighter traffic flow for this week. it is tuesday so expect more traffic flow at least early in the commute than yesterday. we're seeing this orange blob that shows you where the road is and we're seeing tough visibility reflected here. there will be fog through
5:48 am
fremont, milpitas as well, though it's not showing up on the sensors. visibility holding steady just above a quarter mile in most patches. back to your maps. there's a little build toward the bay bridge toll plaza. the metering lights are on but only back to about the end of the the parking lot. >> delta airlines baggage handler under arrest this morning, accused of helping another man smgle guns on to an airplane. investigators say u yeen harvey using his employees credentials to bypass metal deexpect ticketors and apparently gave.

so why is taser so interesting? where taser excels is in evidence management. the recordings are not accessible to the officer. they're stored on the cloud, on accessible to the supervisor. where taser is taking the lead is in the evidence management. that's why it's been a really interesting -- >> and with the evidence management, you want them to be in a secure place. >> what happens if the outcome isn't clear. >> you got it right. >> we're going to check in with anthony, who has been managing our weather data this morning. i guess we're all looking forward to the holiday.
