6:01 am
as you see the bright reds and yellows there. green indicates, once again, aer rain as you head up towards richmond and vallejo. you see the rain is starting to taper off. in the north bay, really not much rain at this point. but you will see some as we go into the next round of rain i'll detail that and what to expect as we see several more inches in the bay area. that's coming up in a few minutes. but let's head to the south bay with mike. >> kari, you're talking about that rain having moved through much of san jose. we're still seeing, of course, wet roads because the rain is actively gone but the water kicking up and still preventing conditions. that is a tough situation. this cleanup going on for about an hour. 45 minutes north 101 just north of that 680 merge the interchange and onramp. everyone getting on the freeway and shifting left as they try to keep the two lanes clear right after all those mothers-in-law. chp still on scene and no major injuries. a look at the map, only a problem right there for north 101.
6:02 am
the build continues from capital slowing towards tully and moving on 87 and another fender bender there and traveling north from capital expressway there, as well. that's it for the south bay slowing. everything else moving very well. despite the wet conditions. blue highlighted all over here and all over the rest of our maps. show you where there is puddling and ponding. your surface street conditions. 880 flows through hayward but not as dramatic as a typical tuesday. the earlier crash has cleared from the berkeley curve area and a live look at the san mateo bridge. the speed sensors look really good there. the water kicking up on both sides and the active rain you can see that in the puddles, guys. be careful out there. back to you. stephanie chaung braving the elements in marin county. stephanie? >> yeah, hey, scott. as you heard kari talk about most of the strong rainfall is south of san francisco at this point but marin county very
6:03 am
steady rainfall and a lot of water has built up on the roadways like here at lucky drive on northbound 101. standing water. as you see the next wave of cars come through, you'll see how much water splashes up. of course, that's the danger a lot of the times here when you have wet weather and the warning, of course, is just slow down. now, down in san francisco, the rain has been hitting pretty hard overnight, as well. the usual spots are starting to see puddles like this area on third and we also heard reports just west of seventh street on 80. people also preparing for protection of property, as well, as drivers are out maneuvering the road and video. here in marin county, you can fill up ten sandbags. up to ten sandbags for free. county emergency leaders a warning service that will update you with any issues that may come up. one thing chp always warns about is not just the standing water.
6:04 am
watch out for any loosened up from the rain that came down from hillsides. that can also cause some hazards on the roadway. live here in marin county, stephanie chuang. from the north bay to the south bay and everywhere in between, as well. everyone feeling the brunt of all these storms. >> bob redell live in the santa cruz mountains. what have you got now? >> well, good morning, scott and laura. looks like we've got a lull in the rain which is good timing considering we're starting to hit the peak of the morning commute. your headlights heading southbound over summit on highway 17 into los gatos and slow and go because the roads are still wet. even though we don't have the rain coming down right now. hopefully this rain will stay with us as we get longer into the morning commute. now, no forecasts for serious flooding during this week's storm. but as we enter the rainy season, flooding is going to be more of a concern, especially in the days and weeks to come.
6:05 am
that's why during the dry months the santa clara valley water district spent that time to shore up the banks and clear out the debris of some of its waterways here and in the south bay. but in spite of that effort, we did talk to a board member and they tell us more work to be done. >> not totally ready. we've done a lot with sandbags and just approved over a million dollars extra for sandbags. the projects are take longer and longer and more and more environmental challenges. >> again, as you see the scene behind me, commuters going over the hump here on the summit to get into the santa clara valley. you do want to watch for speeds this morning because the roads are dry, obviously. they are wet and the chp would tell you want to watch the distance between you and the car in front of you. reporting live here in the santa cruz mountain, bob redell, "today in the bay." we have an app where you can track all this weather yourself. a weather tab up in the corner.

6:08 am
lawsuit to stop the city of santa clara from using its practice fields during the super bowl. now that lawsuit has expanded to include the national football league. but, nonetheless, the nfl started work on a media center right on the soccer grounds. the sant clara youth soccer league said the nfl will destroy the field. the league has promised to make repairs after the super bowl. 6:this morning. the raiders have one cleat out of coliseum. as expected late last night the team filed paper to relocate to southern california. the chargers and the rams also submitted applications. what happens now? nfl owners will review all the proposals and a meeting is scheduled for next week in houston. the raiders fans say the possible move hurts. >> i don't think it's fair because how are you going to take somebody's favorite team and try to move them to like l.a.? >> i'm really disappointed because, you know, it's just a wonderful, fun team to watch.
6:09 am
and i've had season tickets for seven years with a lady friend of mine and it was like the most fun i ever had. >> in order for any of the three teams to relocate, three-fourths of league owners must approve the. let's go back to our top story and the wet weather. rain and strong wind making their way out of the bay area right now. there are more storms on the way. this is san jose. if you're about to head up north, do take it slow and give yourself extra time. let's check that forecast and meteorologist kari hall. >> rain still coming down heavily in spots and starting to taper off for the peninsula and san francisco. we see the rain continuing to move into the south bay hills and it is really improving some of the road conditions. it will slowly as we go inthe next several minutes. but really coming down heavily now in parts of the tri-valley as we see those bright yellows and some reds on the radar. so, street flooding a possibility through the morning
6:10 am
and also with the gusty winds we may have some of the smaller tree branches falling down and that could also block the road. for the sierra, we had hazardous snow and ice conditions and the chain controls have been issued for the travel across the sierra. if you're traveling across the tri-valley, mike has a heads up for what's going on there. >> kari, obviously, your report is going to afeck what we see on the roadway. the slick conditions and the off ramp we always show and one example why you want to slow. as you're making the wet commute and seeing the puddling there. slick conditions could cause some folks to slide and lose traction there. we haven't seen a problem here. the tri-valley looks really good as far as the speeds go towards the dublin interchange and down through pleasanton or through off the dublin grade. look, north here into fremont and heading up towards sunol a crash heading up towards that bend and the washington irving ramps there. reportedly moving from the middle lane to the shoulder.
6:11 am
that's unexpectedly slow. look like that movie "avatar." puddling conditions. green means it's wet and slick roadways, as well. that is the entire commute for you. the live look and show you the crash still clearing from northbound 101 and right two lanes blocked and the left lanes coming off the northbound 101 and the merge with 280 and 680. a lot of folks slowing here. but that congestion just from capital expressway all the way past this scene and the rest of the south bay looking relatively good. back to you. >> give the guys on the side of the road a break. >> take it easy out there, folks. 6:11. wall street looking to bounce back today after a dismal first day of traying of the new year. we'll tell you which way the numbers are expected to go once that bell rings. plus, a big thank you from man's best friend. the story of survival behind this adorable photo. got a tip for nbc bay area investigative unit? call 1-888-996-tips or e-mail

6:18 am
hitting some puddles as you head out. we do have some very heavy rain coming down. at least it is starting to ease up in spots like san jose. really have the rain coming down there a30 minutes ago. and we will see this starting to taper off as we go through the day. it's heaviest this morning. looks mucher tomorrow as we go or today, rather, as we go into the afternoon. as we look at the radar now, we see the scattered showers and not as much yellow as we had just a few minutes ago. so, the rain is less intense and still coming down in morgan hill and gilroy and head up towards san jose and milpitas we have lighter rain. the peninsula taking a at least for now and then you see the heavy rain moving across the tri-valley over towards hayward and livermore and then up towards brentwood and concord. the rain still showing some bright yellow returns here on the radar. and then go to the north bay where it's nice little break. but take a look at how much rain we've had in the last 24 hours.
6:19 am
in the north bay, petaluma about three quarters of an inch. in san francisco, we've had in most spots anywhere from 0.5 up to 0.75 and then the east bay also picking up on quite a bit of rain within the last couple of hours. anywhere from 0.5 in castro valley to danville close to an inch of rain. and pleasanton about half an inch of rain. over towards the peninsula, heavy amounts of rain anywhere from about an inch to san carlos had about 0.75. so, heavy downpours still making things wet and still some puddles on the road in the south bay over an inch of rain in los gatos and santa clara and willow glen about 0.75. as the rain tapers off the rest of the morning, some breezy wind, the sun comes out and peeks of sunshine. with the spotty rain, there will be the slight chance that we could have rumbles of thunder. little bit more energy and then look at what happened early tomorrow morning. again, more rain moving through the bay area as we see the
6:20 am
yellows and the reds and oronges showing pretty much what we are seeing now with some heavy rain and then by tomorrow afternoon, still some scattered showers lingering in the bay area as we see the fourth round of rain moving through. as we go into the next few days, we will have a chance to dry out, but not until friday. our temperatures staying the same and we'll be reaching into the mid to upper 50s for the next few days. let's take a look ahead at what we're expecting. on thursday afternoon, more rain moving through. not much on friday. saturday morning we have some scattered showers passing by. on sunday morning, once again, on monday we will see some more rain passing as we go into late monday night. so, staying active with these storm systems moving through for the next several days. let's see how the roads look now as we check in with mike. >> let the pictures tell the words right now for oakland. southbound flashing lights. not to worry, no incidents reported at 66 and we're looking. northbound the earlier disabled
6:21 am
big rig looks like somebody has help with bright lights and maybe doing mechanical work off the roadway. let's look towards the bay bridge where some of the taillights are headed and end up backed up with the brake lights because the metering lights are on. glowing lights, as well, because the water on the roadway and on the lens still slick conditions around the bay. keep that in mind. look at your map, though. despite the wet, soupy conditions and earlier crashes all around the bay and things are calming down a bit. the worst drive out of orinda and towards the caldecott tunnel and that's the slowest spot for your east bay commute. that blue highlighted is going to mean some puddling and pondling and red zone off the dublin grade and west 580. look over here, the castro valley and that is moving smoothly and so is the dublin interchange. that is moving well down in towards fremont for southbound 680. as we move your map down, the rain most having recently hit the south bay and flooding in spots for san jose.
6:22 am
our photographer headed out just offens creek to check out another spot. 880 reporting earlier flooding, as well. 101 northbound at 680 and we just saw a couple of minutes ago. those flares have yet to burn out but these folks are being cautious. these lanes are open, they can't me, of course. you'll know if things will smooth out in just a bit there, though. >> a lot of people might be crying about that morning commute. but you want to know why your baby is crying? believe it or not, there is an app for that. plus, slow down. the reason one bay area city will lower that speed limit to just 15 miles an hour in many yares. ==laura/cu== "15" is the new

6:31 am
weather and there is heavy snow coming down in the sierras. the bright reds and yellows shows where the most intense rain is. as you can see in the last few frames there as we cycle through the past three hours, you can see it becomes less intense for most of the bay area. while we're not seeing much of that in san francisco. and as that continues to move over the hills, we will still have some scattered showers throughout the day and even some breaks with the sun coming out at times. i'll let you know exactly when to expect and where. that's coming up in the microclimate forecast. but let's head to the peninsula now with mike. >> kari, we'll start in palo alto the traffic volume relatively and the rain kicking up behind the cars as they travel through the area right here by university and the volume will be affected by that water on the windshield, even though it's not actively raining right here. as we look at your map, that is the case all over the bay because the blue shows you where there is ponding and puddling
6:32 am
and have that rain a little more earlier this morning. looking at northbound route to the south bay. looking at a gentle build. considering it is a tuesday, this is not bad and considering there were a number of crashes throughout. things are moving well. northbound 680 just north of auto mall parkway. a couple crashes there affecting the off ramp and just past the off ramp. some slowing countercommute. you don't expect that. over here in the tri-valley moves well. and dublin interchange and the crash just off there and westbound 580 just off the dublin grade. the reason for the slowing there is a crash on canyon road and prepare for that moving to the shoulder. meanwhile, a slower drive for hayward and across the san mateo bridge. across the bay bridge, bay bridge metering lights and no surprises there. look at san rafael and one spot that shows up blue and the soupy conditions we showed you just a couple of minutes ago at the top of the show. the build from novato down to the san rafael bridge. let's bring in stephanie chuang in marin county keeping an eye on weather there. good morning.
6:33 am
>> good morning, scott and laura. the rain still falling here at the border. as it has been for much of the morning. and, of course, that means a lot of water pooling on the roadways like here at lucky drive off northbound 101 where you see cars going through the water coming up quite a bit. the warng, of course, plenty of areas that may pop up as problem spots and come as a surprise. slow down out there. down in san francisco, the rain was hitting pretty hard since last night. the usual spots are starting to see puddles. third and folsom which is a local area and standing water on 80 east. as drivers maneuver the road people began preparation to protect their homes and businesses. county emergency leaders that will alert you' not sure if wind is part of this, but just getting reports from the mill valley police that

6:35 am
>> palo alto is below the flood line. in a bad flood like we had in 1998, people could lose their lives. >> that's why in the dry months you see the water district out there. you can see them with heavy equipment moving boulders to shore up some of their banks and clear out debris. again, during this series of storms we're getting this week, we're not expecting major flooding and urban flooding that we have been mentioning where stephanie mentioned and we talked about flooding on the roads and this week we do not expect them to reach their flood stages. reporting live here in the santa cruz mountains along highway 17, bob redell nch. to san jose. this is a live look of flooding near the intersection of stevens creek boulevard and not far from valley fair. right now a pump truck is right

"today in the bay" kris sanchez here and the president's plan centers around expanding background checks. >> you can't make it mandatory forren with who wants to buy a gun to undergo a background check, but this certainly would close the loophole that allows some people to buy guns at gun shows without getting that background check. today's formal announcement comes after the president got confirmation from the u.s. attorney general loretta lynch that this executive order is, in fact, constitutional. the fbi also backs that up, as well. the move to require all
6:38 am
businesses obtain a federal license also would affect online gun sellers and it would require dealers notify police if a gun they had sold was lost or stolen in transit. republicans say the president is gutting the second amendment. >> it's not going to prevent every mass shooting. it's not going to keep every gun out of the hands of a criminal it will potentially save lives. >> we don't beat the bad guy by taking away our guns. we beat the bad guy by using our guns. >> the president has not even attempted to point to a single mass shooting. these actions he proposes would have prevented because there isn't one. >> now the president is also proposing to modernize the background check process, also hire more fbi and alcohol, tobacco and firearm agents. the president also wants to research smarter gun technology in order to reduce accidental shootings and he also wants to
6:39 am
allocate $500 million towards improving mental health care. now, while the president can go at the background check component of this loan, he does need congressional approval for any part of the plan that involves funding. the president will make his announcement about 8:40 this morning. we will carry it for you live. >> kris, thank you, much. police asking for help this morning tracking down the driver in a deadly hit and run. this happened last night in vallejo. a 50-year-old woman tried crossing springs road. she was in the crosswalk, but a white pickup truck hit her and threw her into the path of another car. and she died. now, we have a picture of the truck. another driver did give chase, but couldn't get the license plate number of that truck. police do think this is a toy ata tundra with a long bed and a lumber rack. it probably has front end damage. 6:39 right now. a lot of spinouts on the roadways. very slick conditions and the rain moving on. let's check in with kari right
6:40 am
now with a look at that satellite radar. >> some of us are catching a break from the rain and it hasn't been as heavy recently in the north bay. but you can see how widespread system is and it also is bringing heavier downpour than we had yesterday morning. as it continues to roll on through, we will at times have some breezy winds, but you can see the bright intense colors here it continues to move east of san jose. and the peninsula not seeing much rain at this point. so, it will be improving as you go up 680 and up towards milpitas. still, some heavy rain now. but up 101, we are getting a chance to dry out, but there may still be some puddles on the road and also in san francisco, not as much rain. over towards the tri-valley. the heaviest rain is moving through right now and then up towards brentwood, you're seeing some pretty heavy downpours over towards concord is getting lighter and farther to the north, we will see that rain really starting to ease up as we go into the next couple of hours. i'll track the next round of
6:41 am
storms. that comes this time tomorrow morning. so, details on that. let's see what's happening on the roadways now with mike. >> kari, this is what laura and scott showed you just a few minutes ago. stevens creek and carlos on the other side of the intersection. we're looking at this truck trying to pump the water out of the area and flooding there at the intersection. the intersection itself is open, but some of the transitions are closed right now. you'll see this type of situation all around the bay as the rain continues for the next few days. look at your map and showing you the south bay commute now kicking frin the freeways, as well. that flooding report right around there 87 at 280 and one of your usual suspects and northbound 101 and better news for the flow of traffic. smoother drive, but a build for hayward and west 580 and still slow the earlier crash now on the shoulder. south 680 at 580 a crash on the shoulder there and slowing down intowards pleasanton and nothing
