6:00 am
>> i am len kiese. good morning. happy friday. meteorologist darren peck has your forecast as we start the day and look to the weekend. good morning. one of the things we will not have to worry about is fog. we pulled in dry air with the winds. relative humidities are going down. less wind is nice. low humidities means it will start to feel colder in the mornings. drier air can make it feel cold. it just drops the numbers on the thermometer on bit. in livermore it's 37. 39 concord. oakland it's still 48 degrees. it's 50 in the city. you get immediate access to the bay like that and you feel just fine. it's where you've got drier air that the temperatures will feel colder. it's total level playing field by afternoon for everybody. we are all going to the mid 60s today with plenty sunshine. see you with more on the weekend forecast coming up in a few. as we look at the roadways
6:01 am
headed towards 580, we've got a couple trouble spots towards the dublin interchange. it's not causing brake lights or delays. there are two trouble spots. a crash west 580 at hacienda involving an overturned vehicle. if you are past that point there is trouble in the left lane connecting to 680. guard rail repair. you might see cal trans crews out there later. altamont pass is looking good. if you are back to work or maybe heading on utility worker to do shopping, things are moving at the limit. we'll look at our bay area bridges coming up in our next report. >> thank you. california hit a record for daily covid cases reported wednesday. just over 18,000. cdc predicts u.s. death toll from covid could hit more than 320,000 by mid december. by then, hospitals nationwide
6:02 am
could be overflowing with patients. numbers in the bay area are generally better than those in other counties across the state, santa clara saw its highest daily number of hospitalizations wednesday. san francisco has still not moved into the most restrictive purple tier as was expected but that could change. >> san francisco is like that last bit of sanctuary. it's like the safe house in walking dead. but you are being boxed in by all that purple. so it is only a matter of time because of people moving back and forth. >> canada also celebrated its thanksgiving six weeks ago. since then the number of covid cases diagnosed per day has more than doubled. surge in u.s. is expected to be worse. cdc is stressing importance of wearing a mask. it took a look at kansas' mask mandate saying it is proof face coverings work. counties that implemented a mandate saw a 6% drop in cases.
6:03 am
counties that did not saw cases rise 100%. marin county is still in the red tier but health officials say that can change next week with cases surging. in the purple tier, marin county would be required to impose over night curfew and close many indoor businesses including movie theaters, jumps, places of worship. the county has already stopped indoor dining. it's one of three bay area counties still in the red tier and has gone from recording average of ten cases a day in october to 20 a day in recent weeks. taking a live look at macy's in san francisco's union square, happening today, shoppers braving crowds will be looking for the best black friday deals. hard hit retailers are banking on holiday shopping and despite the pandemic's financial strain on millions of families, holiday retail sales are expected to grow as much as 5%. online spending is expected to jump more than 30% over last
6:04 am
year. kpix5 is live in dublin. things are looking different than your typical black friday. >> absolutely. good morning. the doors opened here at the best buy in dublin about 5:00 this morning. we've had an hour of black friday here and when there was a line earlier this morning, the people at the front of the line say they got here as early as 3:00 a.m. if you can believe that. it was kind of an open question. we didn't know because of concerns about the virus, because of a general shift to online shopping what it was actually going to look like this year. when we arrived, there was probably i would say easily 100 to 150 people waiting in the line to get inside. it's always the draw of either the latest electronics or some great deal that brings people out. there are some differences. some of them are largely cosmetic. masks are required. social distancing is strongly
6:05 am
encouraged once you are inside. stores have had to lower their capacity. other than that, shoppers say it is kind of like black fridays from years passed. >> coming out here, i think it is the same, just wearing a mask. there seems to be less people just because of the covid and everything. but besides that, everything is the same. >> reporter: one of the biggest shifts is a lot of people are doing shopping online. that has been happening in years passed and it's going to be a growing number of people. stores are pushing online as well because they figure there will be a certain percentage of customer base that may not feel comfortable coming into a store in person this year. so i know i have been getting black friday deals in my e-mail in box for weeks and that's going to roll into cyber monday and probably all the way through the christmas holiday. people are just now kind of coming out after being inside
6:06 am
the store for about an hour or so. that's how things are here at the best buy in dublin. back to you. >> lots of shopping getting done. thanks so much. a group of activists want shoppers to help them reclaim black friday. some small businesses will forego traditional discounts and instead offer a percentage of sales to black and indigenous organizations. kpix5 explains how you can take part. >> reporter: 2020 has been a year unlike any other defined largely by discomfort. as we settle into comfortable familiarity of holiday traditions a group of shop owners wants to be sure we keep difficult conversations on the table. >> if we want to make systemic change, that requires us to deconstruct. it requires us to rethink. it requires us to rebuild in order to create more just systems. >> reporter: a campaign to
6:07 am
reclaim black friday. participating small businesses will not offer discounts. >> we'll be redistributing a minimum of 10% of all sales from the weekend to black and indigenous land based organizations. >> reporter: a photographer in san francisco she says during the protests this spring following george floyd's death black-owned businesses like hers saw a surge. >> it was a crazy influx of the product want being to sold. they were flying off of shelves. then it goes quiet because it was just a moment. >> reporter: rachel owns a business in the richmond district. 15% of her sales this weekend will go to black farmers and indigenous land based group in santa cruz. 2020 has been tough but some bright spots were introspection and tough talks. this is an opportunity to keep the conversations current. >> we think that conversation alone cannot be the answer.
6:08 am
we need to start taking action, and action is where true change happens. >> if you want to to find small businesses participating in reclaim black friday, we have a link at all the surge warnings means people had to rethink traditions. to some that meant handing on utility worker meals to those outside a planet fitness. the flamingo bowl football game was replaced billow contact lawn bowling yesterday and lots of disinfectant. >> it is great to do activities outdoors, enjoy the sun, this beautiful weather. we are making the most of thanksgiving. even in covid there are lots of silver linings and this is one of them. >> the sun is shining. there is a lot of fresh air. this is an easy compromise to
6:09 am
celebrating consciously. happening today, a first of its kind drive thru holiday experience in san mateo. festival of lights kicks off tonight at the event center. guests will see a variety of holiday fun including professional lighting and art installations right from their cars. the event also provides hundreds of jobs for local industry workers to help with the set up. reservations are required and it runs through december 20th. 6:09. still ahead on kpix5 and streaming on cbsn bay area, despite the pandemic, one bay area tradition rolled on. we went along for the ride and beautiful scenery on the longest running mountain bike event. 6:09. the sun is coming up a little after 7:00. this is the time of morning we see light enter the sky. no clouds, no fog. it's a lot drier. that means noticeably colder in some places.
6:10 am
we'll look at that coming up. if you are out and about early, your ride on
6:11 am
6:12 am
6:13 am
the coronavirus didn't stop an annual outdoor tradition in marin county. it was a perfect day for the longest running mountain biking event in the country. it's called the appetite seminar. it started in 1975. >> kpix5's kenny choi went along for the unique ride. >> reporter: it's arguably one of the best mountain biking rides in the bay area. >> it's a real special place, very quiet and serene. >> this was my first ride doing the turkey ride. i am really excited. >> reporter: i couldn't wait either, putting on my gear and camera to start the pine mountain loop trail, a 45 minute uphill ride from downtown fairfax. the climb isn't easy. >> a pretty steep climb so it
6:14 am
is actually okay to walk when you are tired. >> i would say it's a black diamond run, a good 24 mole loop. when you drop out there are no houses, nothing. it's really wild. >> reporter: the corners can be dangerous. it's on this trail. >> there it is. >> reporter: the pioneers of the sport like charlie kelly and gary fisher promoted races like this. the idea, to burn a ton of calories and gobble up more come turkey time. >> it goes back to the history of mountain biking. early pioneers of mountain biking grew up here and this is one of the first organized rides. >> up the hill, down the hill, views are amazing. the colors of the fall. >> reporter: this year it was noticeably different. >> really trimmed down. a lot of people did alternate rides this year. covid times. >> reporter: normally 7, 5, 900 people, depends who you believe. >> it's a shame with the covid there are not so many people.
6:15 am
but this is something you have to do. >> take it easy. happy thanksgiving. >> you too. good morning. if you are getting out and about early today, you are in luck. our freeways are very quiet. a heads up, if you plan on using public transit, many agencies are on modified schedule because of the thanksgiving holiday. expect changes or less frequency in some of the trains for example, cal will be on modified schedule today. bart delays. bart is recovering from an earlier problem. there is a 20 minute delay on the san francisco line in the antioch direction. this is due to equipment problem on the tracks. plan to that this morning. other than that, lots of green on our roads. a pretty easy ride for the most part if you are working along the peninsula. we haven't had troubles along 101. things have been fairly quiet. the only hot spots, two
6:16 am
separate incidents along 580. we have a crash clearing at hacienda drive. just past that, there is reports of guard rail repair needed at the 680 connector. you might see activity but not a lot of volume. so far traffic is moving at the limit despite the trouble spots along 580. if you are coming from the altamont pass area, so far, so good. slight delays off of 205 to 580 itself. we have a crash south bound petaluma hill road north of the expressway. that right lane is blocked for an incident. it looks like chp and crews are on scene. a vehicle did hit a pole so there is a lot of activity in and out trying to clear this out. travel times are in the green. that's good news if you are headed out early. let's see what those temperatures are looking like. >> it might seem like every morning has been identical this week but there have been subtle differences. each day has been kind of
6:17 am
unique. today, it's a lot drier. remember the winds yesterday? thanksgiving got breezy. all winds pulled in dry air from inland california. humidities are down. we don't have to worry about fog bay area wide. with perfectly clear skies look at the view from the top of the sales force tower, looking down to the south. we are looking over chase center there and if you keep looking, line of sight a little bit further, you see hunters point. the south bay, i will show you what it looks like in downtown san jose where we are starting to see light fill the sky. no clouds, no fog. totally different than when we started the week. it was misting in downtown san jose from the thick layer of clouds. in the tri valley, same story here, not only do we have clear skies above but we are not seeing patchy fog out here that we had seen a couple other mornings this week. drier air cleared things out but the down side to that is dry air does not insulate as well and temperatures go down.
6:18 am
it's 31 in santa rosa. that's the coldest temperature we have had all week so far for what is our coldest spot in the bay area consistently. santa rosa 31. look it he rest of the numbers. san jose 38. it's 37 in livermore. we might have pulled in somewhat cooler air from the pattern yesterday but the real thing that changed was we pulled in dry air. that is what allowed the numbers to go down. if you look in the bay, if you have access to the bay and relatively higher humidity levels from water, it's almost 50 in oakland. huge differs depending on where you go. if we look at the difference from yesterday to today, it's 14 degrees colder in petaluma than yesterday. it was one degree warmer in hayward. i mean you talk about micro climates, they're really showing up. look at how humidity levels just drop. daytime highs, if you look at the change in humidity for san jose, you see a difference.
6:19 am
let me show you daytime highs. low to mid 60s. that is no different. if you just looked at the afternoons, you would see no difference. sunny and mid 60s, no changes. it's morning lows where we see the differences. i will see you with more on this. back over to you. >> thanks so much. 6:19. coming up on kpix5 and streaming on cbsn bay area. >> kyle shanahan finds silver lining to celebrating thanksgiving during a pandemic. alex smith's incredible come back, now he has a chance to lead his team to the playoffs.

6:32 am
out of the store all morning. >> reporter: good morning. it was kind of an open question when we were coming out, what was black friday going to look like with the pandemic raging around us? were people going to be too scared to wait in line? were the lines going to be shorter because of general shift of online shopping? we got here before 5:00. the line had begun to form at 3:00. the first person said they got in line at 3:00. they wanted to be sure they got some of the electronics and deals. black friday has survived the pandemic, doors opened at 5:00 am. there are easily 150 people initially. there has been probably double that that have come through since that time. people say other than social distancing and masks that it pretty much looks like it has in years passed.

6:49 am
turn off. that's the view from the top of the sales force looking east. sunrise is at 7:03. we've got plenty light filling the sky in the south bay over san jose and even better as we look to the east just from above the tri valley. that's looking towards dublin. no clouds, no fog. that's the other thing about how the weather has changed. we pulled in a lot drier air yesterday. all the winds that were coming in were offshore winds coming from inland where it is drier. the humidity levels are much lower today. not only do we not have fog but the temperatures on the thermometer goes noticeably lower when you dry the air out because the air doesn't insulate as well. look at the number in santa rosa, 31 degrees. look at the pool of blue showing you where coldest spot is. that's the coldest temperature we've had all week. 38 san jose, 37 livermore. if you get into bay proper it's like nothing happened because humidity levels are relatively
6:50 am
okay. it's one degree warmer in hayward than it was yesterday. meantime, it's 11 degrees colder in petaluma, 14 degrees colder in napa and further inland you go, look at fairfield, 18 degrees colder. no more wind but humidity levels take a drop. if you follow drier air that goes offshore today, it's one thing to look at the numbers. comparison shows us that yesterday at 7:00, relative humidities were in upper 80s in san jose. today at 7:00 a.m., upper 30s. those are percentages. that's a big drop from 89% to 39%, exact same time of day. that tells you. that's the only impact really in the morning lows. daytime highs aren't changing. we will stay in low to mid 60s not only today and we have been doing that for a while, sunny skies, low to mid 60s, and that is going to continue through the seven-day forecast. it's time to start talking about the lack of rain because as we look at the long range, first two weeks of december, it doesn't look promising for any
6:51 am
rain then either. so it is getting a bit concerning. back to you. >> thank you. a top rated daytime drama will reach a milestone next week. >> cbs' the young and the restless celebrating its 12,000th episode. since 1973 the young and the restless has been part of daily life for millions of americans. the 12,000th episode airs tuesday. watch the young and restless weekdays on kpix5. ahead on kpix5 and streaming on cbsn bay area, a bay area county on the verge of going into the purple tier. how soon it can happen in the north bay, next. >> reporter: what is black friday going to look like in the middle of a pandemic? coming up, we'll show you what this year's shopping looks like. let's show you what outside looks like at 6:51. you are looking live from our
