viewing outside from the berkeley hills right now. skies are definitely cloudy up above. but visibility is okay. i've been keeping a very close eye on where we're sitting with visibility and as it look too bad so far this morning, which is nice, especially after a rainy day skies have dried out. still damp, as i mentioned, and a little bit on the cool side. so definitely throw those jackets on most of us are in the 50's right now. san mateo, one of our warmer spots at 60. well, saint helene, the easily. our coldest spot at 48 degrees talking a really comfortable, even sunny afternoon just around the corner. but first let's go over to it's still a bit slick out there. what are issues right now. it is slick. so along highway 4. we already have a hot spot. this is at that. >> westbound for northbound one 60 connector. that ramp is closed right there. vasco road all the way down to 5.80. would be a good alternate overturned. tractor trailer and a spiel slowing us down there. >> heading into the city right now. we've got high winds along the bay bridge along the san mateo bridge. a look at drive times a little under 15 minutes for you to make it.

the crab on the dinner table and that hurts them. one fisherman told me it could impact them, you know, with their yearly salary, what they make about a quarter to a 3rd. here's the reason why the department of fish and said you cannot go harvesting for crab in the most abundant area. we're talking from sonoma mendocino line all the way to lopez point in monterey county. it just happens to be so rich with dungeness crab that the fishermen they go out there every year. and in a perfect world, they would have laid down the traps starting on november 15th, but they cannot do it for now because the state says they have humpback whales in that area. other turtles. they're very endangered species. and because of that, they need to protected. and with those lines in the water. those humpback whales could get tangled in it. they could get injured and killed and they cannot allow that to happen until those whales and turtles
leave the area and that's why they're postponing this that you might say, well, you what's the day. what's a couple of weeks before thanksgiving. you know, they still have time that's not necessarily the case because it takes them about a week to get out there to lay down all of those fishing lines as crab lines and then to start harvesting and so they might miss thanksgiving a time when so many people they like to eat crab. so sure they can probably make up for it for christmas. but this really hurts them some fishermen even told me that they're thinking about leaving the industry because he knows better than us. james and area. he says this is the 3rd year for them that they to push back dungeness crab season for them to do it. you can see at the lines right behind me. look at all that. i mean, that's just countless feet of rope in the waters of the humpback whales go through it and then maybe they can get tangled. no word yet on when the state might allow that very abundantly rich area for crab to start
fishing again. back to you that we'll just have to wait and wait for that announcement. thank you very much. well. >> it's 6 33. and in the a community in gilroy gathered to remember a young man who was shot and killed at a party over the weekend. there was a vigil here to remember 18 year-old michael zuniga, c a the shooting happened at the home of a gilroy city council member kron four's. rob fladeboe has the latest. >> has he paid his respects to a friend shot and killed at a halloween party late saturday night. you are resident. make huerta said he was headed for the party to but decided not to go with the last minute. >> i just saw a lot of people that i knew were up to no good so i just mean my friend thought it wasn't a good idea to come. >> the victim is identified by his family on a go fund me campaign as 19 year-old michael daniels una going see us of gilroy. police were called to this home on loss on drive where neighbors said a loud party was being held. the other victims are ages 17 to
