6:17 am
you. very different storm from the last one. it is very warm here in colfax and it's raining. the concern all of the snow that fell out of the last storm, well, it's starting to get saturated with rain and slush. there is a minor concern over small stream flooding in the foothills with the rain falling on the snow. here is a look at the conditions overnight. you can see some rain coming down from nevada city, all of that accumulating in this snow pack. people would like to get rid of the snow. they don't want flooding issues. but this snow has caused a number of problems with power outages that you heard about, more than 10,000 customers without electricity. as of yesterday pg&e saying only about 100 without power. they were keeping an eye on this storm, though, figuring that the rain coupled with wind might bring a new round ever issues. so far just rain. the wind hasn't been too severe. so far no major problems and in fact, on interstate 80, really
6:18 am
only about a 10 to 15 mile stretch where they are chained up at the highest elevations. again, give you an idea how warm this storm is. there are reports of light snow at blue canyon so expect the chain patrols. a different cry from the last. much warmer in this one. back to you. >> that's what is so amazing, brian. the difference of a few days. the warmth of this storm compared to the last. thanks so much. >> it was hot out this morning. >> it wasn't hot. the feet warmer was too high. thought it was baking. >> never mind. >> christina, better take it away. >> i was enjoying that. i don't know why they came to me. good morning to you. we're looking pretty good. it is mild out there. we have the 50s and the upper 40s for temperatures. and we've got a lot of rain coming down, the cloud cover and this really warm system is keeping our temperatures up. and today we're going to see

6:24 am
>> good morning. we'll take you to the east shore freeway. we're going to start with windy conditions. 20 minute drive to the bay bridge. i did want to get an update on that sigalert on the north bay. southbound 101 at central san rafael we saw two lanes blocked and the tow truck has to go over from the oakland side. we had our chopper try to see that accident. they haven't made a lot of progress. let's check in and see. there they are over the toll plaza on the richmond side of that bridge. i think it might be too soupy to get over there. also very windy. that's the conditions for the drive as well. we'll follow that. a little further south, the bay bridge toll plaza, the backup forming there. probably going to slow the metering lights down because of those soupy and windy conditions
6:25 am
for the bay bridge and the san mateo and the dumbarton bridge. >> a north bay city is banning leaf blowers. the council voted to make the gardening tools illegal. the move comes after complaints that the blowers spew pollution and stir up dust. the exception are work employees who can't use other tools. the ban is expected to take place sim time next year. >> apple set to unveil a new ipad two. they are going to do it at the ma scony center. the speculation not only what we're going to see but is steve jobs going to there be? >> that is the big question. the "wall street journal" says he will be. this is video of jobs unveiling the first ipad. you know he is on medical leave again. he has been spotted in public looking very frail. and i think they are honestly, two good reasons for him not to be there. first, apple has to show that tim cook is legitimately in charge.
6:26 am
and this is really an excellent opportunity for the company. second, if you were to skip an announcement this would be the one to skip. why? because if leaked video like this is to be believed, there's not a lot new. it's an incremental upgrade. thinner, a camera or two. they dropped that from the first ipad because of problems. more memory, better speaker. unless apple is going to drop some sort of huge bombshell this is more about scaring off the competition than announcing anything new. not that there is much competition. the best tablet that's not ist. patrick's day the zoom and it's really expensive. blackberry has its playbook due out this month. the one i like sbes the hp touch pad. here's the thing. the hp is not due out until summer. we're hearing there may be a third generation of ipad as soon as this fall. so yeah, if you're thinking about i'm going to hold off for the zoom, for the hp, already is

6:31 am
moisture before it was able to accumulate so we don't have a lot of ponding out there. nonetheless we're going to see spotty showers throughout the day today. and i want to take to you the south right now, show you what's happening in the san mateo area where our own bob redell is. it looks like we're getting a break there but it's still pretty windy. now bob, a little wind, a little rain, you can handle that, can't you. >> yeah, i can. especially with the lack of hair on top of my head. good morning to you, christina. the rain is definitely not really been the big issue near where we're at at the san mateo bridge. more of a wind issue you can see by the high wind advisory that caltrans posted on their sign for commuters heading across the san mateo bridge to the east bay. once they get across this is what they can expect. lots of gusts, you can see how much the wind has been shaking our san mateo bridge cam that is positioned on the hayward side of the span. add to that the rain and you have dangerous road conditions.
6:32 am
you don't need to tell that to the driver of this car. it's a car that overturned on highway 92. fortunately he was able to walk away, indicating to us that yes, he was fully aware he made a mistake. he should have been watching his speeds around that wet curve. >> this is an example of what? >> just a little too fast for the weather conditions. when it starts raining people need to slow down a little bit. >> why do people forget? it's not like rain hasn't happened before. >> i don't know. this is a pretty common spot. we see accidents here. we try to urge the public to slow down when it rains. >> and keep your distance from the car in front of you. >> always. even when it's not raining. >> reporter: if highway 92 between half moon bay and the peninsula is part of your commute the good news is that accident is clear, all lanes are back open. interesting tidbit from the chp officer on the scene saying they
6:33 am
were surprised that was the only accident they had overnight in this part of the bay given all of the rain. let's find out if that holds true, how are we looking, mike inouye? >> talking about 92 over the hill, that was the issue. 92 over the high rise or the water. san mateo bridge as well as the dumbarton both have a high wind. good illustration what if you're dealing with. and the high rise it will catch you further. 880 off the hayward exchange. slowing a slow drive. around high street there was earlier debris in the lanes, that has been moved but the camera is shaking as well. we'll check with our chopper trying to get over the to the san rafael side. they might have made it across. they are looking for this. back to the map, this is southbound 101 at central san rafael. a big rig blocking two lanes. we got an upday. expect at least one hour for
6:34 am
that to clear. this is going to be huge out of novato. no good alternate for you. 580 is the main thoroughfare. about two lanes of the four are blocked so now you have two lanes. a tree down around korbell. rain in there as well. >> 6:34. today is the day students, teachers and parents have waited for. it's massive day of action to show support for education funding. christie smith is live with an update on preparations. i would imagine they are under way. >> reporter: yeah, good morning. it's going to happen here in oakland is an example of what's happening at school districts across the bay area. the issue is the governor's budget proposal and school funding or the lack of it. they are so serious at the district head quarters that they have 14 links posted about it outside this morning. often educators disagrees flat without cuts. this time, though, some are
6:35 am
saying the alternatives, would be a disaster for education. saying that either way money will be lost. right now the proposal is for half cuts and half tax extension the budget fails, though, it's all cuts, all the time according to educators. governor brown's proposed budget project add $24 billion shortfall and sames to cut spending by about 12 billion and extend current temporary taxes. today we're seeing a day of action in defense of education, oakland school superintendent posted a message on the website about what's really at stake. >> we're currently being funded at 2005-2006 levels in public schools in california. this is devastating. unfortunately, this means we're going to have to take actions we haven't had to take here in oakland, going to have to deliver a higher number of march
6:36 am
15th notices. >> reporter: before classes even start this morning some groups here in oakland will be out front leafletting. there will be a fire drill at all open schools to simulate state of emergency. plus a rally and a teach-in that's going on after school. it's not just here in oakland but at terrifics across the bay and also colleges and universities. live in oakland, christy smith. today in the "bay area living." >> a new -- the california attorney general is asking an appeal court to allow gay marriages. harris filed paperwork with the 9th circuit court of appeals in san francisco yesterday, she wants to resume bay marriages in the state while an appeal is pending on a constitutional case. a district court judge struck down the bill that banned gay
6:37 am
marriage. backers have asked the court to overturn that order. >> a san francisco man has died while snow boarding in tahoe. police say 30-year-old jeffrey halpren got separated. he was found later that day. an autopsy is pending but the coroner thinks he died either from the impact with a tree or suffocating after landing head first in the snow. >> if you don't like the rules on walking your dog in national parks and the bay area you can suggest your own ideas. the park service will hold a public meeting for the plan. people can share ideas on new regulations and the best dog walking areas throughout entire golden gate system. the first of four meetings starts later today in mill valley. >> see how soggy it is out there for getting the dog out for a walk. >> dog walk or a dog wash, a
6:38 am
little bit of both. i think you'll have better weather for walking dogs later on today. right around 10:00 a.m. we're going to see the most clearing. we still have a steady stream of showers pushing on shore in the south bay along season, a lot of rain coming down. as we head through the afternoon it's going to be fairly nice. breaks of sunshine, scattered showers throughout the day and the winds subside afternoon. but it will be on the breezy side. a little bit drier than we were expecting it to be yesterday. that's good news if you have to make outdoor plans. also good news, if you are leaving the house right now getting ready to hop in the vehicle and hit the roads, let's find out what you're facing with mike inouye. hey, mike. >> the water not so much of an issue, not as much as we thought. we got reports of a north bay tree down. and then we have this sigalert. this is not related to the rain. the free might be because of soil but central san rafael two lanes blocked. looks like they might not have
6:39 am
been able to make it to the north bay portion of your commute. the backup at the toll plaza we see it has pretty much filled in from the 88 -- vercrossing approaching the lights. smoother for the bay bridge, san mateo bridge, dumbarton bridges, a look at the travel times approaching the maze and a smooth drive. the gusty conditions especially for the east bay hills may be an issue across let's say all bay area bridges. >> play it safe. the second day of the ntsb hearings into the san bruno explosion is under way. tracie potts with a look at what has come out so far. i know it's early but what are they saying? >> reporter: today we expect to hear a lot more about oversight. did the california public utilities commission due what it was supposed to do before this explosion in managing pg&e. let's talk about what we earned that first day of grilling after
6:40 am
pg&e and others yesterday. we learned new details, apparently the gas flowed for an hour and a half which worsened the damage. the first representative sent out got stuck in traffic and then did not know how to shut down the valves. the dispatcher said this would be the ultimate headache. and the other focus whether pg&e resisted adding shutoff valves to its system. a top safety official even after the explosion said there were no safety cold fronts to that. pg&e's response to the hearings, that they have done a lot, reduced pipe line pressure, checking for leaks, beefing up safety, improving record keeping. we'll hear more from them today and also from the public utilities commission. regulators whether they did their job we know that federal regulators are getting involved sending engineers and experts to dig deep and do what they call a
6:41 am
thorough scrutiny whether the public utilities and pg&e could have prevented this. >> a lot of people in san bruno want to know. >> in act, as hearings continue people in the affected san bruno neighborhood they are still living through that devastation of that explosion. bill and his family, they have been out of their home since the blast. he says it's hard to see the neighborhood he called home for eight years look the way it does. >> you really see more than just a vacant lot. you see the lives affected by this. you look at it and you see that and it hurts. it hurts to be standing here. >> parts of his home had to be torn down before they rebuild it. they expect to move back sometime next year. >> new this morning the impact that smart phones are having to your drive to work.
