5:12 am
apart. the park service owns the building with stunning views of ocean beach and the same family has operated cliff house restaurant since 1973. with this closure, there are now no restaurants options in lands end and sucho baths area. a live look in times square where this new year's eve there will be no crowds for the first time in decades. times square will be closed to the public. dozens of front line workers and their families will be honored with spots near the stage. instead of getting ready for thousands of new year's revelers this year, new york police are busy shutting down streets and subways because of the pandemic. they tweeted this photo of the road closures. nobody will be allowed near times square to watch the annual ball drop in person. you can watch online instead. with the new year comes new traffic safety laws and our
5:13 am
traffic expert gianna franco breaks down the changes you can expect on the roads. one of the laws focuses on hand held cell phone use while driving which we know is punishable by fine. if you are caught a second time, you are subject to points on your driving record. i spoke to a chp officer who said that can lead to no driving privileges. >> if you get enough points in a year of time, your driver's license can become suspended. obviously we don't want that to happen to anybody. but we also recognize the fact that distraced driving is still a huge problem and hopefully this will help remind people a little bit more that this is significant, that the primary job of driving is to drive your vehicle. it's a life or death decision that you are making every time you pick up that phone instead of your primary responsibility of driving. you've got to keep your eyes on
5:14 am
the road. >> other traffic safety laws, move over slow down law will apply to local streets and roads, not just freeways. authorized vehicles can use a high-low warning siren to advise people of the need to evacuate. if someone comes to the aid of a child in a car who is in immediate danger that person will be exempt from civil or criminal liability for damaging the vehicle. for morrissey the full interview at and at cbsn bay area. as we look at the roadways, we are dealing with slick surfaces. certainly watch your speed and be extra careful if you are out and about. we have a couple brake lights because of hot spots due to the wet weather. east bound 80 at powell street we've got a crash. view cannon ramp 280, a trouble spot involving a vehicle fire. we are dealing with slightly slower speeds as you approach

forecast. let's see what's happening with the rain. we are taking a look at last night's leaving. you see those showers exiting towards the south. that was last night and now we are moving on because we are in a break. there are clear skies for a lot of locations. we had so many clouds over night temperatures have stayed relatively warm. it is only 42 in santa rosa. that's like ten degrees warmer than you have been dealing with. it's upper 40s for most of the rest of the bay. it does feel better when you step outside. we'll have a pretty day for thursday. we'll warm up to about 60 for most locations for daytime high today bay area wide. then we wait. most of new year's is fine. new year's eve, new year's day. it's friday night when the next chance of rain gets here. you see that storm sitting out here. that band of rain works across the pacific. by friday in the afternoon, it looks so good. we are just on the tail end. let's come for a closer look. there is 4:30.
5:17 am
there is our rain. we get a few light showers. friday night into the 8:00, 9:00 hour we are seeing more light rain moving through sonoma. that's almost exactly the same thing that happened with last night's system. a weak system comes in, falls apart. we get light rain in the north bay and after about midnight we see showers work down towards the heart of the bay and it falls apart before it gets down to the south bay. we don't see much rain. we will keep it cloudy friday through saturday. look at what happens saturday night. another weak system comes in and misses the bay area pretty much completely. we may get a shower in the north bay but it doesn't lack like much. how much are we going to get? a couple hundredths of an inch of rain falling friday night into saturday morning. those are totals for the north bay. let's look at the south bay and we'll see the numbers here are not surprising or even less than, about .100 of an inch of rain. if that's the way things come
5:18 am
together for the weekend, i will start this midnight sunday into monday. monday's system looks better, probably a quarter of an inch of rain. more widespread rain for monday. that will be a better snow producer in the sierra. this first one friday night gives us an inch or so. monday we end up with about a foot and a half of new snow up in the sierra. that's good news on that front. here is your seven-day forecast, the next chance of rain late friday night and then again monday. then another one which shows up on wednesday next week. we'll take a look at that one as we get a little bit closer. let's give that one more time to develop. let's share a bay area bright spot. no, we'll do that next half hour. that's what we call a tease in the business. i'll see you with that at 5:45. gianna just did traffic. we are going back to the

prices. wholesale prices hover about 2.25. crappers want it closer to 3.30 to help them pay for bait, boat maintenance, and insurance. an update on the earthquake, it was a 3.6 centered just south of near beach. we are trying to gather more info. in the meantime, a look at your roadways. we are dealing with slick surfaces. heads up if in walnut creek. south bound 680 at main street, we've got a couple cars tangled up. apparently one of the vehicles knocked down a traffic freeway sign. there is lots of debris reported. west bound 24 before gateway we've got a crash with a pole down in the right shoulder. as far as delays, a pretty minimal impact to traffic with not a lot of cars due to the holiday. if you are out and about, you will see slight delays.
5:48 am
east bound 80 before powell street, we have this out there. chp on screen with the left lane blocked. it's improving there. we were tracking brake lights and things are getting better. west bound 80 east of fremont we have reports of a trouble spot. san mateo bridge looks good. we are not seeing brake lights through this portion. as you head further west towards the peninsula side, west bound 92 at the high rise we are getting reports of a broken down big rig stuck in lanes. it looks like that's slowing down traffic just a bit. there are not a lot of cars in the road there so be careful. metering remains off so traffic is light but we have that traffic hazard off the bay bridge off the skyway at fremont street, it is blocking that lane. essential travel to tahoe, chains and snow tires required. let's check with darren. let's give you the overview
5:49 am
on that minor earthquake that was experienced within the last 15 minutes or so. it was centered off the coast. if we look at the red flashing bullseye on here, that shows you the way usgs will often locate these was to say it was a particular distance from one location. in this case they're saying it was just about seven kilometers south. several miles south of the beach which is actually here. it's not a good way to do it. think about it as being just about right off the coast where you would get towards muscle rock if you know where that is. there is an interesting side note. that's the exact location that the happened on. it does not mean there is a relationship in terms of intensity. this was minor. it was 3.6. anne felt it at her home. it is likely you may have felt this. now you know it was minor and centered in the pacific off the coast. if we look at high def doppler,
5:50 am
a few light showers showing up as we take a look. the last bands of rain have fallen apart south of fresno. there is really not much going on there. and we're done. if we look outside from the top of the sales force tower looking south, we are looking at clear skies now. it was cloudy overnight which meant that the temperatures were in the low 40s for morning lows. that's a big improvement for many of us, like a ten degree jump from where the numbers were. over much of the last week for much of the north bay, daytime highs today come into the low 60s for most locations with plenty blue sky. one other item to discuss. the high surf advisory. it stays in effect until 3:00 tomorrow morning, 3:00 a.m. friday. look at the coastline. everywhere that's highlighted in that purple has got it and we can see large breakers up to 20 feet, rip currents, sneaker waves, all those things you want to be careful about if you
5:51 am
