6:03 am

6:07 am
monitoring your latest microclimate forecast. >> we can the fog behind you and very dense in spots and clear visibility there and oakland a quarter of a mile and barely able to see ahead of your headlights. and half moon bay along the coast, we have basically no visibility there, but once all of that clears out, we'll have some sunshine and temperatures today reaching into the low to mid-70s. it will be a very nice afternoon in the financial district up to 71 degrees. 73 in napa and antioch 77 degrees while livermore today is at 32. we are looking at more of this kind of weather, also some rain as we go through the week. i'll detail that coming up in less than ten minutes. let's check in now with mike tracking the problem in fremont. >> a problem for folks on the nimitz freeway in the southbound direction and this is as you're heading down past warren where
6:08 am
there is a crash. let me show you the map, actually, where it gives you a better idea. the crash over here just shy of mission boulevard. mission makes the crossover just fine and in that backup the fog and the crash. we have another crash southbound 880 stevenson boulevard more backups south of the dumbarton bridge. again, 680 is okay coming out of sunol and the tri-valley. in the tri-valley this crash and still blocks one lane, at least as far as i understand in the midd middle of the freeway and the express lane gets by all right and that keeps traffic flowing pretty well. i'm going to widen out your view and note that aside from that fremont, the two crashes in fremont, the rest of your bay moves pretty well and the orange highlighted, that is where fog will be a factor. patchy, dense fog at times. bob redell traveling through the bay bridge and i think you're over on the peninsula side and maybe san francisco. >> correct. just left san francisco 101
6:09 am
south past candlestick point approaching sfo where it is not super dense. clearly see the cars in front of you. ing around the bay all morning long and the worst of it was definitely for us on the bay bridge and incidentally within the past 20 minutes chp has issued a fog advisory for many parts of the drive to work. but especially martinez and richmond san rafael and the dumbarton and carquinez and the bay bridge as i mention. those are areas where you'll see heavy fog. this is video we shot, let's say, i am going to guess about an hour ago. this was us heading northbound 101 through the belmont, san carlos area and then did go across the san mateo bridge which was actually not that bad in terms of fog and then we went up 880. once you start getting 880 north into oakland and then as i mention, the bay bridge, that's where we the worst of it. yes, you could see the cars in front of you, but it was definitely hazy.
6:10 am
if you do find some areas where you're in really dense fog like half moon bay as kari was mentioning, do not use your bright headlights. that will beam right back into your eyes. if you have fog lights, use them. watch the distance between you and the driver in front of you. reporting live here 101 southbound, bob redell, "today in the bay." >> you can check the fog driving conditions and weather in your own neighborhood. all at your fingertips on your nbc bay area app. a pantless golfer at a pga tournament. he's allowed to play on. why he was on the course in the first place. >> hot. somebody makes a very, very big mistake on facebook. we'll show it to you coming up in "business and tech." not the only controversy that was addressed that academy awards last night. we have a wrap up for you, coming up.
6:11 am
6:12 am
6:13 am
>> and the oscar goes to -- "spotlight." golden night for the underdog. "spotlight" surprised many winning the oscar for best picture. but a real spotlight, you could say, was on the host chris rock and how he handled the controversy surrounding the lack of diversity in hollywood. >> certainly a very delicate issue going in. kris sanchez joining us now with reaction on how he did. good morning to you. >> what is chris rock going to say, how is he going to handle it? that was anticipated as any part
6:14 am
of the oscars and the comedian did take on the race issue from the moment he walked out on stage welcoming the people to the show with humor that was surprised light hearted and sometimes biting and drawing nervous laughter from that star-studded crowd. >> i'm here at the academy awards. otherwise known as the white people's choice awards. things going to be a little different at the oscars. this year, it's just going to be black people that were shot by the cops on the way to the movies. things are changing. yeah, we got a black rocky this year. yeah some people call it creed i call it black rocky. >> each of you is an ambassador who could influence others in the industry. it's not enough to just listen and agree. we must take action. >> while the academy also took on the issue of sexual assault on college campuses with the performance by lady gaga who was
6:15 am
surrounded by survivors of sexual assault. he was introduced by vice president biden who calls for a whole culture change. that among victims and perpetrators and among anyone who sees something happening. and leonardo dicaprio spoiler alert. he won his first oscar. he used that first oscar acceptance speech to call for a global action on climate change. now, we are continuing this conversation on facebook and on twitter. we're curious takno know what y had to say about the issues that were raised and whether using the oscars as a platform does anything to elevate those very important causes. sam and laura. >> certainly some interesting questions. as for the other big winners of the night, as kris just mentioned leonardo dicaprio took home his first academy award out of five nominations. finally he gets the win. much more on who walked away victorious coming up in a live report from at 6:45. it's 5615 right now.
6:16 am
apple trying to keep its iphone secure takes another turn this week. >> this week, laura, apple will to washington and silicon valley are lining up in support of the cupertino company. >> a hearing tomorrow, sam, in washington. apple ceo tim cook has been invited to appear, but we understand he won't. though apple will be represented. cook on friday addressed shareholders at apple headquarters. this is file video. we're not permitted to tape the shareholders meeting, but he got a standing ovation from the shareholders they are right behind you and we expect silicon valleys to file friend of the court this week. this is real support. more than just a, hey, we're behind you on twitter or what not. the fbi wants apple to unlock an iphone 5c used by one of the san bernardino shooters. surely they could open the phone themselves.
6:17 am
why not do that? we ask bob sideman who opens up phones for courts for his job. >> the fbi can do it, but i thought it was good they were being above board and publicly asking apple saying we don't want to touch it, you touch it. >> he said apple should open the phone. apple can destroy that tool. the fbi creates the tool, it can use it as often as it wishes. it's the last day of trading for february. looks like we'll have a positive month when you add up all the gains and subtract the losses and, sam and laura, did you see this. a fellow in england received a two-year suspended sentence for drug dealing. he went on facebook to celebrate it and then he said something very nasty about the judge who gave him that suspended sentence. checking his facebook page this morning. he has apologized but not before the judge hauled him back to court and unsuspended his
6:18 am
suspended sentence. he's going to prison for two years. >> no way, really. >> don't say nasty thing about a judge that didn't put you in prison. >> maybe about anyone at any time. >> by the way, a larger point here. you will and can be held responsible for anything you say in social media. we know this, we preach this and you're saying you get off on a crime and then go to facebook. >> everybody needs miranda rights for their facebook. 6:18 when it comes to golf shots, all right, this one is a little too hot for television. certainly answers the age old question. boxers or briefs. >> or starts the new question, what were you thinking? perhaps a dry cleaning bill -- at least he's in shape. garry woodland's mind yesterday during the honda classic. yes, he's in briefs. he's taking that shot without pants on. so, what he did, he stripped down and shot bare foot in his boxers. naturally woodland then went
6:19 am
straight into a bunker so, parentally, it didn't work. talk about cool under pressure. >> can we agree on that? >>. >> know how his competitors felt. >> he managed to par that hole after all those theatrics. >> did you see the banner par under wear. >> just wear swimsuits underneath your pants. >> get a new sponsor maybe he'll get, fruit of the loom sponsor or something. >> i bet. i could see that. >> speedo could start making golf pants. >> don't hit it in the drink. there you go. >> we have some great golfing weather today. after this fog rolls out of here. don't the links too early because we'll have some low visibility. and, yes, wear pants. as we take a live look out there at the golden gate bridge. you can barely see anything and it's also misting in some spots where the fog is the thickest. so, watch out for that.
6:20 am
allow some extra time to get out the door and get to work. a look at the forecast this morning. we see the dark shades of gray where the fog is now and that means visibility is low in those spots. and i'll give it another couple of hours before it starts to clear out. the sun breaks out and we'll have a beautiful day. only some fog holding on to the immediate coast right around the outer sunand pacifica. looking now at those temperatures, we're in the mid-40s in some spots to mid-50s along the coast and as the seven-day forecast comes up at the bottom of the screen, you'll see a couple chances of rain in the forecast this week. 46 degrees now in the east bay and let's drop in on the south bay. santa theresa is at 53 degrees and 51 degrees in willow glen and taking it hour by hour in san francisco, we start out in the 50s. and then it warms up as we go through the morning. at lunchtime, it's 66 degrees and great outdoor lunch weather and then into the low 70s today as we go well above average. and then we will have a couple of chances of rain in the
6:21 am
forecast this week. the first one, only for the north bay late tomorrow evening. the rest of the bay area we'll see an increase in cloud cover and that has pretty much been the story the past couple of weeks and then another system moving in on wednesday night. starting in the north bay and then moving to the south, this one doesn't lose its punch as easily. so, we could have a measurable rain here and then a more significant rain heading into the weekend. both saturday and sunday. but the next three days, it's mostly dry in the south bay. high temperatures reaching into the mid-70s in san francisco and right at about 70 degrees. the east bay will be anywhere from 70 to 74 degrees. and some cooler temperatures moving in as that rain arrives over the next several days. i'll be keeping an eye on that, but mike's still keeping tabs on what's happening in fremont. how is it looking now? >> promises of better trachffic guess. the dumbarton bridge and the crash at warren and stephenven
6:22 am
have both cleared from the roadway. we should see some recovery, but pretty dense fog in patches through the area, that's why folks are slowing, as they should. south of fremont, the silicon valley not showing really any slowing. we'll show you the problems north of there. the orange, that's the fog. that is the big issue for more of our drivers than just that stretch of fremont. slower drive just through hayward as you would expect through the san mateo bridge and i want to show you the live shot. chp issued advisory for fog across all of your bay area bridges and i'll extend it to the san mateo and golden gate bridge even though they listed those. conditions at the bay bridge, you can't see the east shore freeway. let me show you what i can of that north bay. these lights here you normally see the curve and this is a factor for your drive and it will build, it will change. we'll track it and more news after this break.

6:32 am
red suv from the house. the sheriff office says this was around 1:30 this morning when a deputy saw the driver of the suv run either a red light or a stop sign when the deputy tried to stop the driver, he or she took off and there was a short pursuit before the driver then crashed into this house, which also brought up a gas leak concern. but pg&e crews took care of this earlier. had to be towed across the street as investigators dusted for fingerprints in and outside the vehicle and also searching the suv with flashlights. the vehicle did not have plates. the search for the person, of course, continues and that's five hours later now. we also hear that sunnyvale police with the canine unit may have helped in this search, but, again, no lock and the person still on the run. live in san jose this morning, stephanie chuang, "today in the bay." turning our decision to 2016. by this time tomorrow, super tuesday is going to be well under way with hundreds of delegates up for grabs. >> "today in the bay" tracie potts live in washington, d.c. how are things shaping up so
