'09, is the time. and still ahead on the kron 00:00am morning news, a bay
area man is finally released from the hospital after 9 months battling covid. we'll have more of his story coming up. plus, after the break. bay area airports are gearing up for a very busy holiday travel season. we'll tell you what you can expect. plan on taking a flight and the airport this morning. not looking too bad. we do have mostly cloudy skies over the bay, but no fog as epo. we're saving that for inland valleys on this thursday morning. >> 60's for your daytime highs later on chance of showers ahead. i've got that your forecast. and we're really starting to pick up here along the bay bridge. we've got disabled vehicle. so traffic slowing down. have a look at your other bridges when we get back.
>> 6.13. and it's really chilly out there. it and in here, not in here, but in here, my home. so i told you, i just want to let you know that a while. i didn't put the heat on it was 52 degrees inside the house this i do have an electric blanket. so we'll see that. some say you want to electric blanket and we have what is still in the closet. but i think it's it's get cold enough now have this time to pull it out, john, especially when we start trip. it's been in the east bay start dropping down to 30 actually keep window open open last night. >> i feel great. is that lots of blankets that for graham's your dog. right next to me. it
the stay warm. just love it cold that that's what i have. 2 dogs 3 dog night. how many dogs on a cold night. and i have 2 dogs, but really has proof. you can take the man at the the cold. i just want that sleep but yet as long as you get the electric blanket, hopefully that might be saving you a little bit on the electric bill. i do know this time of year you start to get those surprise bills because it does get colder as those nights get longer. you're looking outside at half moon bay right here. skies are starting to get a bit brighter. now it's going to stay mostly cloudy today. so unlike the past few days, which did eventually get pretty sunny today. we're going hold on to that cloud cover couple sprinkles around duke high up in mendocino county this morning. rest of the bay area is dry and will stay with the 3 dog nights. question okay. none of us have 3 their of showers will push in tonight into tomorrow morning and we are going to be looking at nothing more than a
trace for most of the bay area. so this is not a rainfall event that's going to be slowing anyone down a few showers in the north bay into early morning hours tomorrow. then a couple of sprinkles looking likely elsewhere pushing out fairly early in the day by noontime into the afternoon. your friday actually clears out pretty nicely. how much rain are we going to see here will for fairfield. you could see a 10th of an inch, some light showers. most of the rest of the bay area. nothing more than a sprinkle. as for today's temperatures, it's going to be a day in the 60's. a few 50's near the coastline. just a touch cooler than yesterday. it's going to feel a little bit cooler. in addition to that one to 2 degree temperature drop because the fact you're not getting as much sunshine today. just generallyea cloudy or one ahead of us. san jose at 67 hayward at 64. well, looking at some low 60's in areas like conquered antioch, sonoma and napa hovering pretty close to the 50 degrees. upper 50's for your afternoon highs. so it is a pretty cool one compared to where we have been temperatures don't get much warmer ahead of us in this forecast. we'll see
temperatures at our warmest next monday in the mid 60's. so not a big change. our best chance of rainfall between now and thanksgiving. is that slight chance of showers. we've got early tomorrow. rain. john, thank you for that. right. so as you're traveling out there on the road. you do have a hot spot. this is in hercules. >> westbound for at that 80 connector. all lanes currently closed there. so san pablo avenue would be a good alternate if you're trying to get around that. they just closed those lanes. also, the bay bridge is busy. they have a stalled vehicle right near the treasure island exit. so a little under 19 minutes for your drive time as you're heading from the east bay into the city right now heading across towards the peninsula. little under 14. no major delays over here at this hour long one. oh, one and the richmond center fell commute traveling out of richmond. a little under 8 minutes darya james, back to you. thanks a lot. rain has got the roads. we've got the airport airs. a live look at sfo and it is going to be busy. it is in fact, john was talking about i think this coming friday
tomorrow is going to be the biggest busiest travel day for thanksgiving. >> and don't forget to we've got international travel being welcome back. it's going to be extra crowded. the lions might be a little longer than you're used to because it's been a while since we've seen. >> like this. here's sfo spokesman talking about. the fact is you pack patients. >> but he that's been through sfo the past year and a half and probably a took a lot less time to get through the process. imagine what it was like in 2019 and give yourself that kind of time yourself a good 2 hours for a domestic flight 3 hours for an international flight if you're getting a covid test before boarding your international flight. remember budget additional time for that as well. that's the ultimate luxury. otherwise understand that of face masks are still required for air travel. there's a lot of walks of life where they're no longer required. but any time you're at our airport or on board. an aircraft still got to wear that face mask. >> and he's adding that they predict the passenger counts are going to continue to go up because people are more comfortable traveling because
they're vaccinated now. so we really eager to see family and friends for thanksgiving like they couldn't do last year. 10 years. i haven't seen mine for a couple years. so. >> and it's the same over in oakland. my favorite airport, although i am flight has a time oakland's looking at about a 170,000 passengers passing through next week, which would be twice as many as last year and they, too are warning the use it. you're going to need to leave a lot of extra time. the mask mate mandate a nationwide thing at all us airports. all right. let's hop a flight to dc give you a quick update now on the latest. >> on capitol hill democrats. really trying potentially get president biden social spending plan. >> they're going to vote on that. they think it's going to be beneficial for all americans. democrats republicans say the plan will be bad for the country. >> 2 sides to every story. basil john has them both live in washington, dc high basil. >> well, james darya. good morning and yes, the democrats

>> it will invest in a sustainable economy. it will invest in a brazilian. >> economy. stop the spending. the spending is the thing that's driving inflation and we don't want more inflation. but louisiana republican congressman steve scalise blames the president and democrats for increased prices and says the build back better plan will only make the situation worse. we are against trillions more spending far from our kids borrowed from china that will fuel the inflation that's already too high. >> now the house is expected to vote on the social spending plan on friday or possibly this weekend reporting live in washington. i'm basil john basil. by the way, i since we might need knots. you closer to thanksgiving. are you traveling for thanksgiving. no, no, i used up almost all my vacation days. i'm staying in dc for thanksgiving and i'm going to cook thanksgiving dinner for my was do you guys get along like a politically the dc but you know,

>> the man who fatally shot ahmad arbery is going to return to the witness stand for the second day today. the prosecution is going to cross examine travis mcmichael, one of the 3 white men who are charged with arbery's murder yesterday mcmichael testified that he feared for his life because he was struggling with his own gun. mcmichael and his father and another man say that they chased arbery to make a citizens arrest because they thought that he might be a burglar. mc michael says that he shot arbery in self-defense. he says that arbery grabbed his gun and that's why he shot him. arbery was unarmed. a judge has ordered x raiders wide receiver henry ruggs a 3rd to make an in-person court appearance next week. this because he missed a breathalyzer check in the defense says that ruggs has been completely beautiful and

engineers. so with basically one hurts the other hurts and that's why they will be out today and tomorrow. here's what you need to know if you have an appointment with kaiser permanente today. do not reach out to them. they will reach out to you if they cannot get a hold of you as far as having the staff to treat your problems because let's face it. yes, the at a three-day warning about its sympathy strike or a possible strike. but that is very hard to replace. so we're tom interests radiologists nurses, even the pharmacists, as you mentioned, james. so lots going on. and according to kaiser, they say this is not going to bring them any closer to a resolution with the original. crux of all this. their negotiations with the engineers let's talk to some of the people here. this is linda hunter. she's with that union. the bigger union is here. your thoughts on this sympathy strike. why was this so important for you to show solidarity. today we're out supporting of brothers.

doing that in san francisco. the public health officials are urging caution as the holidays approach because doctors there say they are seeing a rise in covid cases. and again, remember, even if you're vaccinated, you could be a carrier in. you want to protect others as well. you know, you don't want to spread covid without knowing it. >> we are working to stay ahead of the virus it's clear boosters are necessary for us to avoid. it was a significant surge in hospitalizations increased mortality as well. >> and so see, there is talk about how you can also protect yourself which is by getting a booster. 80 1% of san francisco residents are already fully vaccinated. but most people still need to get that booster because that's more recently approved. there are more than a 100 clinics in san francisco alone that are offering the booster shot. >> well, san jose man spent 9 months in the hospital
battling covid and yesterday returned to santa clara valley medical center to begin his physical rehab. now you see him there in the wheelchair. he was greeted by the nurses and the doctors who cared for him that entire time. now he got the virus back in february. and in those initial 8 weeks he was in a medically induced coma. 2 months when he woke up, he couldn't walk really couldn't breathe all that well. he couldn't even move his left arm. take a listen to how he describes it. >> waking up not knowing that 2 months passed and. you know, i was really scared. so waking up. my arm did not move my lays in that movie. i was too weak. we're all hopeful that he'll continue make improvements in terms of standing in. >> we don't know what the future holds, brief walking and maybe being able to get to a point where he could. >> eventually be out of a wheelchair with ongoing therapy. >> wow. so he has now received 2 doses of the pfizer vaccine. he says he's going to do everything possible to make sure he doesn't catch covid again. osha, meanohile, has
suspended the enforcement of the large employer vaccine mandate that was issued by president biden. the mandate would have required businesses with more than a 100 workers too. make sure that their employees are vaccinated for covid or at least undergo testing. the decision comes after an appeals court told osha that it could not enforce that mandate until another court ruled on the issue. the biden administration has insisted that it has a strong legal case to enforce that mandate will see what the courts say. and we are going to be looking at a loud today ahead of us mostly cloudy at the coast highs. for the most part of the coast in the 50's. >> low 60's further inland and we're starting the morning with some fog ahead of what will remain fairly cloudy afternoon. i'm talking the details on when to expect rainfall in this forecast ahead. >> and tracking a hot spot out in hercules and we're all so busy as you're heading into the city this morning.
>> if you didn't know you, maybe you forgot. >> we're in the middle a drought. so yeah, i mean, it's easy to forget all the hills or green again after we've had some recent rains. but now we're still in the middle. the reservoir levels are low and apparently we are conserving enough. we know the governor had asked all of us to cut water use by 15% earlier this year. the latest numbers we're nowhere know apparently over all californians have saved like 3 and a half percent. yeah. and he again, the governor said 15%. so local water experts are saying.
>> that we've got to do a lot more or else we're going to be in big trouble. so i don't know what more we can send pretty try to. going to be in big chunk of they were specific like that is so not good enough say. >> you better do for big trouble. you got to say with the big trouble is way to like tell mom. >> that's big i got off and they're too old. now. i can take the ball away. i can't it's an empty more water just john's got the latest drought monitor map where we are. we getting any better with any of this. you know, light rain that we've been little progress over year. they're not enough actually this week. it's been kind of the top seems to have run out a little bit. we do have our one lone chance of rainfall between now and thanksgiving. and that's
tonight into tomorrow morning. so this is where we were october first. that's the very start of the water year. and before we had that big atmospheric river. you can see that most of the bay area was in the deep maroon indicating exceptional drought. >> now as we worked our way a little bit later on. we did see some progress being made, especially in the north bay after 18 inches of rain in pockets for portions of sonoma and marin counties. it took you out of exceptional drought and back into extreme drought, which is a very bad place to be advancing a little bit further and we did see a return of severe drought up into portions of mendocino county. but much of the bay area still in the midst of exceptional drought and we still have a long way to go before we really much improved conditions. this week is not bringing it for us. we're only seeing a chance of some sprinkles tonight. we do have some great this morning ahead of the storm that does try to work its way and you can see yukai in the midst of some light sprinkles right now. those will hold off until evening hours tonight, this weak frontal boundary really just passing across the
region. losing steam as it does so you can see that in future cast cloud cover today. tonight we will see the arrival of a few showers to the north bay and then those sprinkles drift a little bit further southward into the rest of the bay area into early hours of tomorrow. how much rain is going to leave us with maybe a trace for most of the bay area at max around a 10th of an inch around fairfield. as far as temperatures go ahead of the system. we have cool things down a bit were cloudier and we're down a few degrees from yesterday. this is going to keep us in the upper 50's to low to mid 60's for most areas at least redwood city at 65 or warm spot today being campbell at 68 degrees while the east bay in the mid 60's campbell. and are here union city each at 64 oakland at 62 in barely even make in the 60's across most of the north bay. a look ahead at our next 7 days shows temperatures remaining cool and pretty dry other than tomorrow. scattered morning showers which will be very, very light. we are going to be looking at any chance of rain until after thanksgiving

>> the state and federal lawmakers leaders are taking action. they're trying to get this stuff moving through california ports and at least getting it like into storage and then maybe temporarily before it can be trucked to you to the stores. governor newsom announced that state is going to issue temporary permits to allow trucks to carry more cargo so they can get this off and somewhere. and they're also working to identify property to put this storage containers somewhere to speed up the unloading process because i mean, they can't even get this on to the ports and off the ships. well, that might. >> not pose an immediate relief on the retail front. it will have a substantial benefit on industrial and manufacturing cargo containers that will make their way into the ports of long beach and l a. >> the federal infrastructure bill that the president just signed going to help with dedicate 17 billion dollars to revamping the ports. but again, that's more of a long-term solution. the short
