5:00 am
night. what versiinvestigators know so. and who may be behind this. you see all that green and rain on the way. today in the bay starts right now. as we monitor changing conditions, good morning, thank you for joining us this wednesday, i'm sam brock. >> i'm lawyura garcia gannon. >> let's look at your forecast. it's been a while since you saw rain come through. everyone will see it. >> it's been about two weeks since we had a good soaking rain across the bay area. the rain develops this morning and by this afternoon we will have widespread rain for the entire bay area. may not reach the south bay until 6:00 or 7:00 this evening. the winds will start to relax. i will detail what to expect
5:01 am
over the next couple of days in a few minutes. let's go across the san mateo bridge with mike. >> you're talking about the wind getting stronger and you can see the camera trembling a little bit. let's look at the map and not a lot of activity on the road. the san mateo bridge and a truck south bay on grand avenue, still no word on information because chp is not worried about it. we'll track that for now, very light right now. the south bay will remain lighter than normal because a lot of schools are off for that winter break. back to you. >> thank you. 5:01, new this morning, apple sending a big message, rejecting a court order to help the fbi unlock one of the cell phones used by the san bernardino terrorists. >> and the impact it will have on silicon valley. first, the new reaction from apple ceo, tim cook, who said he
5:02 am
will fight this court order, bob. >> reporter: good morning, sam and laura. apple ceo writes his company has no sympathy for terrorists but argues the fbi's request to unlock an iphone would jeopardize security and encryption on all i phones. within hours it released this letter on his website from ceo, cook, to his customers explaining why his company will fight the magistrate's order to unlock the i phone of syed farook. investigators indicate they are trying to access data on his phone for the month and a half leading up to the attacks but can't because farook might have disabled the i cloud feature. they indicate the fbi wants his company to create a back door to what apple claim is a new
5:03 am
operating system. that modified ios would be equivalent of a master key that could unlock and bypass security of encryption found on millions of other i phones. he says there's no guarantee the government could keep it conf e confined to just the terrorist iphone. i'm quoting on this literary frliterary -- letter, tim cook, while we believe the fbi's intentions are good, ultimately we fear that this demand would undermine the very freedoms and liberty our government is meant to protect. cook went on to explain his company has cooperated with the fbi in the investigation when it comes to providing data in the investigation and also making experts available to provide expert visa. reporting li ining live in cupe. bob rodell. and now to scott, on what's
5:04 am
happening right now. we heard what cook had to say, essentially it's pandora's box in opening the software. apple is making a big stand here. >> this is the line in the stand we knew was coming for apple. i want to take you to stanford university, where tim cook was invited to a summit by president obama himself. tim cook stands up there in front of the crowd and makes his first major statement the sec t secrets on our iphone are our secrets and not the government. they don't know what's on our phone and cannot find out what's on our phone and will not build something to break into our pho phones. such an important moment in silicon valley there, we called it at the time one of the most important moments in tim cook's career. again the past new year, 2015, we said maybe the most important thing to happen in tech in 2015. now, it's going from principle to practice. cook's stand will help protect
5:05 am
the phone used by what nearly every american thinks is a bad person and did undeniably bad things but a ltd. of people won't understand why an all american company like apple wil defend these people. so often you stand on a principle for civil liberties, the people can be distasteful even when the principle is honorable. >> there is a court order. >> but it is from a magistrate and all due respects to magistra magistrates, that is low down on the to temp pole. there will be a number of appeals and for now they will ignore that court order. >> to be clear, they're not defending terrorism. >> they're defending freedom. so many times when you're def d defending principle the person who represents that principle is not somebody you like. >> very interesting. we will keep tracking this latest story throughout the morning. online and on air, head to our
5:06 am
website for constant coverage. an investigation continuing on a shooting in berkeley that le left -- involved three teenagers late last night. >> it happened near the san be a blow avenue intersection. stephanie is there, police still looking for the gunmen? >> reporter: that's right, sam and laura. we know these three teens are from berkeley, from 19 to 16 years old, very young. it's pretty dark. in the block behind me in the residential area, rwe are less than 2 miles from berkeley uc camp campuses. investigators focused on the bullet casings, showing multiple shots were fired. police say the gunmen knew they shot the three teens when they
5:07 am
were sitting in their car but unclear what led up to that. >> we don't believe it was a random act but not specific if it was a drive-by or if somebody walked up and shot into the v k vehicle. >> reporter: the berkeley police department spent several hours canvassing the area and talking to any witnesses. police add there may have been more than one shooter. as for the victims, two are in serious condition and one suffered nonlife-threatening injuries. we did research on on this neighborhood and what goes on here and we'll share it in the next half hour. >> thank you very much. it is 5:07. it looks like santa clara leaders will appoint a repla replacement mayor today rather than electing one. the mayor stepped down even before the confetti could be cleared from the stadium.
5:08 am
now, they need someone to fill his term. they said there will be an emergency meeting to appoint a replacement tonight and if they cannot do it by march 10th, there will be an election. >> we will have the wind ahead of the rain and feel the wind increasing through the morning and early afternoon. we're starting to see the rain stretching into the north bay. mainly light showers. we will see it getting heavier in the morning and winter advisory 7:00 this evening. and gusting 50 miles an hour in the hills and possibility of tree damage and power outages, too. let's see what's happening on the roadways with mike. we see cars on dublin. no surprise.

5:15 am
iran had refused to shut down the program or israel attacked iran by conducting a cyber war and hoping we could stay out of a shooting war. the plan will be revealed in an upcoming documentary called "zero days" but the reporters of the newspaper said they verified the facts of the film independently. the national security agency may not be as powerful as we first thought. the report showed the nsa is reading far fewer americans e-mails than earlier reports said. potentially, that could affect lawsuits filed by americans who think their privacy was violated. let's check your news before the bell and we turn to landon dowdy. welcome back. >> scott, thanks. good to see you. the markets may add to tuesday's gains, higher this morning and set for a second day despite a drop in oil prices with tech names such as boeing and yahoo!.

5:17 am
>> as you pointed out, when we were talking about it before the show started, it seemed like the reaction was towards someone in a wheelchair being hurt. >> reaching over it. exactly. still, you know. >> i'm sure but he will forgive. he's a forgiving man. >> as you said, he's a holy man. >> i feel like i have to go to confession. >> a touch from above here, basically a little bit of rain after a couple of weeks. >> yes. it's been two weeks since we had a good soaking across the bay area. here we are again with cooler temperatures moving in today with showers. you can see the camera shaking here at the bay bridge. and this evening it may go to early tomorrow morning. we'll talk about that. right now, 65 degrees in san francisco while 55 degrees in the north bay. as you head out, you may not need a jacket as temperatures hold steady this afternoon. be sure to grab the umbrella
