vehicles off on rolston street. if this is part of your commute, take surface streets, before the onramp, before you get stuck on that. our desk is working on it. we'll send it back to you. i know you'll be watching that. let's get a look at what we're expecting weather wise. we're starting out with chilly temperatures this morning, and in some of our inland valleys, we're starting out with patchy frost. as we go into today, it will be a nice one, and that nice weather continues for shopping tomorrow as well as the weekend, with some temperatures that are about normal for this time of year, headed for the mid- to upper 60s. palo alto, looking at a high of 67 degrees. we'll see also mid- to upper 60s for the east bay. hayward, 65, and 65 today in napa. we'll get a look ahead to our weekend forecast and also that draught update comes up this morning. a private security guard recovering this morning. this is after being shot wile on
the job. he had been working with the local tv news crew. this is when someone started shooting in downtown oakland. >> this is a shooting that hits close to home for us and every other tv station until the bay area. we use these guards many of whom are retired police officers to help protect us. "today in the bay" cheryl hurd shows us how the city is responding. >> reporter: there's a $17,500 reward for information that can help oakland police catch the person or persons who shot a private security guard in oakland. the shooting happened here at 14th and webster in front of prime 356. a crime reporter and guard were there to interview the store owners about a smash and grab involving some 30 people monday night that was captured on a surveillance camera. the owners came back to the store for a food give away when thieves arrived with guns blazing. >> somebody rolled up, said get down, he just started shooting at everybody. >> the security guard was hit by
gunfire. >> he got shot for no reason. the dude didn't even take the camera. it was senseless. senseless attempt on multiple people's lives. >> reporter: the oakland's police department is asking for the public's help. >> we are asking if you were in the area, have a business or live nearby, check the surveillance footage, you may have captured the crime before, during or after it occurred. >> reporter: it is not the first time a tv crew has been shot the at oakland. it's part of the reason crews travel with guards now. in fact, one of our own news crews was held at gunpoint. >> for decades you would never think reporters who are doing their jobs because they have a camera. >> reporter: oakland city council is holding an emergency meeting about public safety next week. the police chief will tell the city what the department needs to try and stop this unusual crime wave.
at the top of the list, oakland needs more officers and that can't happen overnight! we're not going to be able to stop all violent crime. we know that. but if we could reduce it substantially in the weeks and months ahead, that would be a victory. >> reporter: cheryl hurd, "today in the bay." in the east bay, new video of this, a pharmacy on piedmont avenue being ransacked. you can see dozens of people grabbing drugs and other things off the shelvings. wellspring pharmacy gave us this sped up video of the break-in. according to the time stamp, it happened just before 8:00 p.m. saturday. police have not released any information about the thieves. and this recent string of robberies comes as we approach one of the biggest shopping days of the year. >> yeah, and after a tough stretch last year of course because of the pandemic lock downs, retailers this year are really hoping for the return of black friday bargain hunters. some are already waiting for the big best buy sales and target
bargains. this year's outbreak, a flash mob, shoppers are making additional plans. one man said he'll be doing shopping online this year just to try to avoid the crowds. for some of those who do decide to brave black friday conditions, a little bit of advice for you. >> don't go it alone. be careful, shop with at least one other person if you're out. certainly take safety into consideration. >> now, one expert with the coalition of law enforcement and retail says that shoppers should be aware of stolen merchandise online. so if shoppers see high end products on sites like etsy, amazon and ebay at deeply reduced prices, it could be stolen or counterfite. going to think about happy thanksgiving. a lot of people going out for a run before they eat their food. my husband is one of them. i am not. first meteorologist kari hall with the turkey day forecast.

you can see the red there. because of this, they are diverting the traffic off of rolston avenue, and that is expected as of now, according to the chp traffic reports to reopen within 30 minutes or so. hopefully by the 5:00 a.m. hour, they should have this at least a little bit more cleared out, but for now, again, hard closure along northbound 101 in the peninsula, and if that is part of your morning commute, you want to take some surface streets. also seeing a little bit of a back up near the richmond area just before getting on the bay bring. eastbound 80, there was also an earlier crash that caused lanes to be blocked. those have now reopened. but aside from that, i don't know what that mass transit graphic was doing that, that sig alert, hard closure in that stretch. i'll send it back to you. it's 4:38, coming up on "today in the bay," a woman who has been part of the tradition, 75 years and counting, what she did last year during the

taking dovato with dofetilide can cause serious or life-threatening side effects. hepatitis b can become harder to treat while on dovato. don't stop dovato without talking to your doctor, as your hepatitis b may worsen or become life-threatening. serious or life-threatening side effects can occur, including allergic reactions, lactic acid buildup, and liver problems. if you have a rash and other symptoms of an allergic reaction, stop dovato and get medical help right away. tell your doctor if you have kidney or liver problems, or if you are, may be, or plan to be pregnant. dovato may harm your unborn baby. use effective birth control while on dovato. do not breastfeed while taking dovato. most common side effects are headache, nausea, diarrhea, trouble sleeping, tiredness, and anxiety. so much goes into who i am. hiv medicine is one part of it. ask your doctor about dovato-i did. ♪♪
