welcome ba mondto monday mo it is november 11th, veteran's day. a live look from sfo, hoping for a nice forecast. a lot of people have a three-day weekend. we are here this morning for you. good morning to you. i'm laura garcia. >> and i'm marcus washington. mike will have a look at the early morning commute. literally. >> very. >> kari, today? >> the weather looks really good today. it is veteran's day, a lot of outdoor celebrations and festivities going on. we'll take a live look outside in san francisco, no fog as we
start out and we're going to see mostly clear conditions across the bay area. as we look at our temperatures, it's really cool, right now down to 40 degrees in napa. we're going to drop a few more degrees as we head throughout the morning and warm up quite a bit today, very warm temperatures for this time of year. we still do have those mid-70s and low 80s inland. so we'll have more on what's ahead as we go into the rest of the week and mike, you're focused on the bay bridge. >> i am for a couple of reasons, kari. you show a great view of the golden gate bridge we're looking at the green speed sensors for the view around the bay but we will call out an issue getting out of san francisco along the lower deck a disabled vehicle was reported just off of the san francisco side, helped it off the bridge at treasure island. we just got clearance a couple of minutes ago saying they had cleared the span but was concerned because with the lower moving caravan out of the city and into some of the low clouds we saw for a few minutes that could have been an issue. it's clear but toward the oakland side you see the fog
creeping in to our shot. i didn't change the camera but this is a view of the airport but the bay bridge toll plaza does have fog drifting in. back to you. >> thanks, mike. a fire threat growing up another notch this morning as high winds move back into some places. >> "today in the bay's" pete suratos joins us live in marin. without any november rain, we're still extremely vulnerable. >> reporter: yes, guys, and it's not quite a red flag warning as of yet but there's a little bit of elevated fire danger at least for today. in fact, we want to show you a map of some of those affected areas in parts of the bay area that could see some of that elevated fire danger. you can see on that map a number of cities that are still kind of in that danger zone with winds hitting 10 toe 25 miles per hour in some of the higher elevations of parts of the north bay, that you see there on the map. i do want to point out we're still near all-time highs for this time of year but not seeing the strong winds so that's again why it's not quite a red flag warning. of course winds were a factor
when dealing with the kincade fire, which was finally contained last week. you had wind gusts reported in the deep terrain up there up north, hitting between 45 to 60 miles per hour. that fire did reach more than 77,000 acres and destroyed hundreds of structures. as you mentioned, it's going to be pretty dry, not much rain until next week. we could expect more wind next weekend. reporting live, pete suratos for "today in the bay." >> something certainly to keep an eye on. thank you, pete. this morning, family and friends of a vallejo man are demanding answers after investigators say an off-duty officer shot and killed them over the weekend. >> the shooting happened last night at a gas station on fairgrounds drive in vallejo. when officers arrived they found a man shot. he later died. vallejo police say the other person involved in the shooting was an off-duty richmond police officer. in the meantime, family members identifying the person killed as eric reason of vallejo. friends say he was a father of six. >> all i know is this needs to
be investigated. i will not lie down and let this go away. i he was a working man. >> the vallejo police department and the solano county district attorney's office are investigating what led up to the shooting. one of the san jose police chief's officers shot and killed a man over the weekend. on saturday afternoon, officers tried pulling over a car on southbound highway 85, near winchester boulevard. during the traffic stop investigators say a man in the passenger seat of that car pulled out a gun, and that's when the officer shot him. that suspect died at the scene. police say that he had a warrant out for his arrest. his identity has not yet been released. and police in san francisco's chinatown are rattled after new video surfaced showing a violent altercation over the weekend. some of that video you're about to see is considered graphic by some. "today in the bay's" sergio quintana has details on what
happened and the response from city leaders. >> reporter: the video is pretty tough to watch, what you can clearly see is one of the attackers violently hitting a man, and then just a few seconds later, a second man is hit, and seemingly knocked out cold. the scuffle continues for a few more seconds as the main attacker tries to help one of his friends, then they get back into the dark colored suv and drive off. san francisco's supervisor aaron peskin tells me the three men who were hit were actually good samaritans. >> folks took the law in their own hands. they tackled one of the perpetrators, and then other perpetrators came and assaulted them. >> reporter: witnesses told police there were four people in that dark colored suv. supervisor peskin says officers have several very good leads including information from a potentially related violent purse snatching outside this bakery the night before. >> this appears to be the same vehicle that was involved in a robbery on friday evening
november the 8th. >> reporter: portsmouth square is a popular spot for locals affectionately called chinatown's living room because people gather here every day. >> chinatown is a community with a large number of senior citizens who live in very small quarters and this is where they congregate. this is where they socialize. >> reporter: the there men who were injured in the video were treated by medics. one had minor injuries. two others were transported to a local hospital. they have already been released. sergio quintana, "today in the bay." it is 4:36. leading bay area health provider kaiser permanente facing a world of uncertainty after the unexpected death of its leader, krerks, o bernard tyson. the 60-year-old died in his sleep early yesterday. he took over as chairman and ceo five years ago, after spending nearly 30 years with kaiser in various other roles. he pushed for affordable health care for all americans.

it's 50 in palo alto and 49 in san jose. we're walking out the door to 47 in livermore. let's head over to palo alto to see how the morning will shape up for you. we're going to see our temperatures mostly in the upper 40s to start. it will be slow to warm up with a few clouds drifting by, and then going into the rest of the day, we start to see that warming trend under way. that seven-day forecast is already up at the bottom of the screen, as we take a look at our highs for this afternoon, and we're going to reach up to 76 downtown san jose, 80 in morgan hill and 82 today in gilroy. these temperatures still well above normal, as we are going to see a lot of sunshine for the afternoon. concord reaches 80 degrees. 74 in hayward. also 74 in san mateo, and for san francisco we're up to 70 today. for the north bay, we're going to see highs up to 83 degrees in ukiah, while napa will see a high of 78 degrees there. also the low humidity will be a factor in tracking the fire

line for the cash lanes. you notice not all of them are open, and you also notice thin veil right here, that is sort of impeding our view of the east shore freeway, as you drive through this, it's short lived because by the time you get to the main span of the bay bridge, everything's okay, just past the toll plaza. we're looking at not a manjor issue as far as contra costa goes but the road weather index shows patches of fog through the north bay. these are not surprises. there's lighter traffic flow for many drivers. it's still under 20 minutes of course from marsh creek road down vasco to 580, which moves smoothly, we showed you the earlier shot at the dublin interchange. we have a disabled vehicle getting away from the area eastbound in livermore but it is over on the shoulder over the next couple of minutes and a roadside fire 680 at berryessa, at you know surprising spot, should be taken care of by fire cruise locally. we'll keep our eyes on any reports. i saw flashing lights across the

she visited an office for a real i.d., which will be required for air travel next october. jenny says she paid $28, but soon discovered her new license had the same expiration date as her old one. she expected her renewal to be pushed back a little. she was right. it turns out the clerk issued a duplicate license instead of doing a full renewal. jenny complained, but ended up paying an additional $35 just two months later for a proper renewal with an extended expiration date. next jenny applied for a refund of the initial $28 that she paid and didn't get her money back, so she contacted us. we contacted the dmv and within 24 hours, she got her 28 bucks back. the dmv in a statement said that miss maclin was right to request a refund and we regret it took so long and so many attempts before she was issued one. head over to
