6:16 am
leaves the spot but sometimes, a rumbling truck passing by fools the meter into resetting and going to zero thinking the car left. it leads to a parking ticket. >> absolutely understand the frustration and we do not like that people have received citations inappropriately. we have dismissed citations so that individuals don't have to paw. >> the city is working to fix it and dismissed more than 100 parking tickets and turned off the reset function on a dozen meters. walnut creek faced similar complaints from drivers when it installed smartmeters just last year. and just like san jose the sensors in the meters were too sensitive. are you ready for a little football? hope so because the 49ers have announced their preseason schedule. they will play houston and host the cowboys at the second game at levi's stadium, then off to

6:18 am
so this is going to cause quite a mess for commuters this morning as they clear this out of the way. they are diverting traffic in both directions westbound diverted off at main street eastbound at san quentin. so again, give yourself some extra time. here's a look at conditions on the richmond/san rafael bridge, as well. again, it is very busy as a result. to our maps, if you want to avoid the area, do the best you can, your best bet is to use a couple of alternates. in fact, bay bridge highway 37 that's really the only other way you can get across between the east bay and over to marin. so again this accident westbound 580 richmond/san rafael bridge at san quentin both directions completely shut down. we'll continue to keep you updated on that all morning. now, unfortunately, one of your alternates the bay bridge is stacked up. metering lights are on. you're backed up well into the maze. it's going to see some extra volume for folks avoiding the bridge to take the bay bridge instead. so again plan for that this morning. you might use mass transit.
6:19 am
i know bart is right on time. >> good morning. live weather camera looking out to the bay bridge from the city of san francisco. >> we are going to see a pristine day. numbers 38 degrees in santa rosa but the wind are blowing out of the west at 6 miles per hour. so the wind chill this morning makes you feel like it's 33 degrees. you will need a jacket out out. otherwise we are in the 40s. it's now 50 as we venture a little east of the bay bridge into the oakland area. here's what you need to know today. fair skies for openers then sunny and slightly warmer. next chance of rain showers will occur on tuesday. tuesday, a good chance now. here's our satellite and radar image . low pressure is bringing in clouds. that will be the scenario all week sun/cloud mix. but the temperatures will warm under a building ridge of high pressure. area of low pressure well to the north of the bay area is
6:20 am
going to flatten the ridge and that will bring some cooler temperatures by monday and tuesday and that chance of rain. all right. currently 70s through hanford and manteca. 21 degrees going up to 56 in the high sierra. miserable day yesterday as far as pollen count was concerned. count was up. more sneeze and wheezing for me. monday higher levels in the atmosphere. today if you are going out to play, 50s, 60s, low 70s. extended forecast: >> frank and jules? >> roberta, thank you. 6:20 your time. a nationwide recall issued for two popularred

6:35 am
looking out from mount vaca. altogether, oooo. very nice. yeah, right. why are we whispering? >> because it's so beautiful. >> 38 degrees currently good morning, everyone, in santa rosa. a west wind at 6 miles per hour. it feels like 33 degrees out the door. san jose that 48 degrees we are in the low 40s in san francisco, 50 degrees now in oakland, 40s from concord through livermore. these are the averages and you want to compare them, average high in oakland is 66 today pretty much spot on. concord with a high today of 71. san francisco slightly below average. we'll have the full-on sunshine along the coast today well into the 50s. 60s, 70s around the peninsula. santa clara valley into the low 70s. east of the bay northwest breeze to 15. temperatures 60s and low 70s. danville at 73. but 74 in blackhawk. low 70s from antioch back through mountain house. 60s, 70s north of the golden gate bridge. lake county and napa also in the 60s. we have the seven-day forecast still coming up at about 48
6:36 am
minutes after the hour. jules, frank? >> see you then. the drought is only getting worse. now california could be in for a megadrought! experts meeting in sacramento yesterday warned the state drought emergency could be as long as a decade. california could follow in the footsteps of other drought- prone places like australia, where they had a 10-year drought. >> i mean, we don't know if it's going to rain next year. we don't know if it will rain the year after that. we can hope for it, it will rain somewhat. but we need to prepare now as if it won't and there's no time like the presents. >> the state's water resources control board will vote on mandatory drought restrictions next month. pg&e has to pay more than $2 billion for the san bruno pipeline explosion. the state puc blamed pg&e for sloppy safety practices. the company and its shareholders will pay not ratepayers. 8 people died, 66 were injured in that 2010 explosion. and sfo is doing some
6:37 am
damage control after being named the worst airport in the country for security. according to the "associated press," there have been 37 security breaches there in the past 10 years. of those breaches, only two people had access to planes. a spokesman for sfo says their neighbors are the problem. >> we have a homeless shelter adjacent to the airport perimeter. we have been in extensive outreach with that homeless shelter and our goal really is to ensure that the occupants of that homeless shelter keep a safe distance away from the airport perimeter. >> mineta san jose airport is fifth worst in the country. oakland airport was not on the list at all. the day apple fans have been waiting for finally here! >> it's true! the long-awaited apple watch went on preorder at midnight. and kpix 5's mark sayre joins us live at the apple store in palo alto one of the many stores where customers can test drive the new watch. >> reporter: good morning. this product launch a little bit different than the way apple has done things in the
6:38 am
past. today people can come to the stores to look at the new watch if you have an appointment you can try one on but nobody is going home with one today. apple stores are already open of course in asia and also in europe. here's some video from sydney, australia. customers trying on the watch. apple encouraging people to make appointments to try them on. they range from $349 to $17,000. the editor for the tech site the verge has been trying out the watch and here are some of his early impressions. >> once you start getting notifications on your wrist where it feels like it's tapping you on the wrist instead of just vibrating that's awesome. you really notice it. the idea is that you will again to recognize the taps so an email will feel different than a text message will feel different than a phone call. >> reporter: the ap has been tracking apple stores all over the world. they report that some stores have entire sections devoted
6:39 am
just to the watch. those without an appointment in some cases can still get in to actually try on a watch through a rot try. for example in tokyo this morning, there were 75 lottery tickets that were handed out. back to a live picture in palo alto. there was a blue tarp over the window earlier that was taken down around 6:00. apple employees are in there. we can see the watches on display at one of the tables inside. if you notice, there's nobody here in line. so perhaps apple fans feel differently about being able to buy something versus being able to just see it. who knows. i'm mark sayre, kpix 5. 6:39 now. two food companies are recalling their products because of concerns about listeria bacteria that can cause deadly infections. blue bell creameries has recalled more than 25 of its products in the last month. and now sabra is recalling its classic hummus because of possible contamination. eating foods with listeria can
6:40 am
cause an infection known as listeriosis. it includes fever, muscle aches and nausea. >> it can get out of the intestines into the bloodstream, can cause encephalitis and if a woman's pregnant, it can unfortunately precipitate a miscarriage. >> health officials say three people who ate tainted ice cream from blue bell have died. experts say listeria can grow in cold temperatures, too. so that means contaminated products can get more dangerous inside your refrigerator! the time now is 6:40. every second counts in an emergency. but a major flaw in california's 911 system is preventing first responders from arriving as quickly as they should. >> and those smart parking meters apparently aren't as smart as we were first told. the problem forcing one bay area city to throw out more than 100 parking t

breaking fuse in san rafael. an accident on 580 blocking all lanes a semi truck on fire. you see it there. live look at the scene near the richmond/san rafael bridge. we are going to have traffic in couple of minutes and find out what areas you will need it avoid. a boy is dead and another fighting for his life after a car plunged off a pier in los angeles. firefighters say four people were in the car when it rolled into the water. a 13-year-old died a fewer hours later an 8-year-old boy still in the hospital. investigators are trying to figure out how it got in the water. burglars posing as construction and water workers in san jose. there could be five people involved in the scheme. police say they are behind at least three break-ins at the
6:45 am
end of march. each time they knocked on the front door wearing hardhats and construction vests. then they will tell the person who answers that they need to do maintenance work. >> the ruse that they are using is that they typically will distract the homeowner by asking them to go to the rear of the residence or someplace on the side of the house while the partners enter through the front of the house and burglarize the homes. >> witnesses reported to police seeing the burglars leave in a white suv or pickup truck. oakland police are looking for two persons of interest in the killing of a musician over the weekend. they released these photos and police want to talk to the two people you see there. they are also looking for a silver mercedes described as the suspect vehicle. it is a four-door s-series sedan. the shooting happened saturday night near 14th and broadway. berkeley musician emilio nevarez was packing up after a show. he was hit in the neck by a stray bullet as he was carrying his equipment out of a club.
6:46 am
police said the shooting happened up the street when two people got into an argument. sacramento woman says her friend died while they waited for 911 to arrive. >> 911, what's your emergency? >> now she is asking state lawmakers for help because the dispatchers can't trace cell phone calls. the flaw in the system is being addressed in a hearing in sacramento. 911 operators can only see an approximate location not the exact location. >> seconds count when you're a victim of crime or medical emergency. if we can have an exact location right away, it will save lives. >> in fact, according to the california chapter of the national emergency number -- >> in 2013 alone, dispatchers couldn't tell the location of more than half of all 911 calls made by cell phones in our state. 6:46. we want to keep you up to date on this traffic alert along the san mateo bridge and it is -- excuse me, the san rafael bridge on 580. >> reporter: in fact, it's happened about an hour ago or more than an hour now so still
6:47 am
