counter. also use social media to your advantage. airline agents on there have power to get things done and they might respond to you faster than picking up the phone. in my case i recently sent american airlines a direct message on twitter. got a response an hour 37 minutes later. that is not great but it is far faster than the four hours the call center said it would take to call me back. american told me it's handle time, the time passengers spend on line with an agent is up this year. it's added thousands of reservations agencies and is still hiring. you might end up with unexpected expenses. what about travel insurance? will it pay you back? may be. it depends on the policy. >> there's a lot to look at. >> reporter: sue is sedan recommends flight insurance that covers flight militias plus hotel and rental car costs. airline travel insurance

4:47 pm
area.com. pick up the phone, 888-996 p-tips. >> very helpful information, chris,ing thank you. recreational crab season started today. there's a state ban on crab traps to help whales and sea turtles. it's delayed in the area for that same reason. crab is a thanksgiving tradition for many. be prepared for higher prices. >> i think this -- there's nothing like good fishing weather. let's find about the weather in general. >> as long as the seas are aren't at 20 to 30 feet, it's a nice day to be out on the water. as we get into monday. right now 66 degrees in san jose. a few breaks of cloud cover. allowing for some blue skies.
4:48 pm
i think we'll see the same temperatures around tomorrow with low 60s currently in dublin and san francisco mostly cloudy skies and west-northwest wind at 12 pliels per hour. what we have out there is the sort of weakened end of a storm system that is passing by the bay area. you can see a few ice weighted showers along the coast. slight chance of showers in the north bay at night. bigger change tomorrow morning. the time. again, we wind the clocks back an hour tonight. sunrise changes to 6:42 in the morning. chilly start. 30s and 40s outside. during the afternoon, partly cloudy skies. sunset will be at 5:05 and see the temperatures to wrap up your weekend. 62 around san francisco and oakland. similar temperatures from north to south tomorrow. it should be nice at santa clara.

60s. no rain and no gusty wind. nothing like we had a couple of weeks ago. temperatures staying in the 60s around kickoff time and dropping into the upper 50s around the four corner. notice here monday another atmospheric river pattern setting up but not as stroongd not lasting as long as the event we saw about two weeks ago. it will power up some pretty good rain rates at times, especially monday night into tuesday. that's the reason the north bay average looks like around 11:00 monday night to 5:00 a.m. on tuesday. should be about one to two inches of rain and the rest of the air picking up an inch to half an inch of rain. by the afternoon you begin to see light rain and the main impact coming in for around 11:00 monday night. you saw the rain totals, even as the storm moves out tuesday morning, you may see some ponding on the roads. it's enough rain that could linger into the tuesday morning
4:50 pm
commute. then it moves out quickly. the totals look like they're going to stay in the one to two inch range. skies clearing and that might be it in terms of storms. once we get past tuesday, long-range outside look as we get into looks like november 17th. it's starting to turn dryer. as we wrap up the weekend with cool temperatures, wind and rain increasing monday evening into tuesday. then the rest of the week around san francisco, trending dryer and a bit warmer. it's been a while since the seven-day forecast focuses on just one storm. it's a powerful one, though. it's going to get your attention with the wind and rain monday, tuesday, and wednesday but drying out as we head to next weekend. of course we obviously need the rain and snow around here. >> thanks. a tradition is back in the big apple after being canceled
