san francisco, a little under that. we still have rainfall in the bay area. the heavier rain right now across parts of the east bay stretching from brentwood and down interstate 4 near 680. the south bay and the north bay seeing patches of sunshine. mostly cloudy skies will be in place. rain at times will taper off this afternoon. we have another round of rain in store for tomorrow. we'll talk about the timing on that when we'll see some sunshine plus another system this upcoming week. it looks like we're not just done with the effects just yet. still hanging on to some rain. >> i love it. all that pollen that came out this past week, it's now off my
car. thanks to mother nature. and thank os to you. >> it's mostly scattered showers until noon and throughout the day today. from 8:00 last night the south bay saw steady rain. this is where showers hit the downtown area. some said they were caught off guard and forgot the rain gear because of the hot weather. z. >> i was prepared today. >> over in the mountains, showers left slick roads which meant slower speeds. the state water resources control board will decide by the end of this month if there's enough ground water to lift the restrictions we have been put on during this drought.
new this morning, rain may have been a factor in a crash that killed one person in the east bay. it happened shortly before midnight in oakland. officers say when they arrived they found a mercedes flipped over. this happened the driver is a man in his 50s. he died at the scene. he was the only one in the car. >> they were not wearing a seat belt and may have been ejected out the windshield or out of his own window. >> the exit is reopened at this hour but the cause of the crash is under investigation. to a developing story this morning. u.s. marshals are looking for this man who is being called zombie mike. there are fears this accused rapist may be hiding out in the bay area. the real name is michael hawkins. authorities say he has a half brother in san jose. he's wanted for the 2012 rape of a wheelchair bound woman in her new york home. his u friends nicknamed him
zombie mike because of his poor hygiene. >> he's smelly, his teeth are bad and just developed the nickname. >> he's suspected of assaulting a wife a year after the new york attack. you're urged to contact police or the u.s. marshals if you have seen him. and take a look at this man and two women. police are looking for them after an assault in the mission district. it left one person with life threatening injuries. the attack happened two weeks ago around 2:00 a.m. near 16th and valencia. we have another look at that group. if you're able to recognize anyone call san francisco police. a dramatic new twist in the deadly balcony collapse in berkeley. officials say the five companies who built the apartment complex did inferior work that led to that accident. the east bay times reports the california state contractors licensing board discovered the
balcony was not built to trade. it could rot the wooden beams that supported the cabalcony. you may remember six college students were killed in that collapse last june. now to a lot of excitement over a brief visit in the bay area by president obama. the commander-in-chief was in san francisco yesterday for fundraising purposes. there was an event hosted by nancy pelosi. the price of admission more than $33,000 per couple. organizers say the event raised $3 million and that's all for the democratic congressional campaign committee. spectators came from near and far to catch a glimpse of the president. >> we were only here for a couple weeks, but we asked people what they thought about donald trump and it's really interesting what people have to say. it's very divided.
from an outsiders point of view, we're obama fans. >> president obama told supporters that this upcoming election is important because the republican party is not rational and well functioning. president obama is scheduled to fly home to washington, d.c. early this afternoon. now to decision 2016. republican candidate ted cruz dominates in colorado ahead of today's state convention. cruz won a big majority of the delegates up for grabs. he will address the assembly today. donald trump cancelled his appearance effectively conceding the state. and trump instead is focusing on his home state of new york as is john kasich u. last night kasich was in syracuse where his rally changed locations twice because of a growing number of attendees. new york's primary is ten days away. meanwhile the democrats are trying to play nice while campaigning in new york.
when asked whether hillary clinton thought sanders was qualified she answered yes and said she would take him over any of the republican candidates. sanders did the same while speaking on the "today" show yesterday. both of their campaigning came under fire after clinton and sanders accused one another of not being qualified to be president. back here in the bay area we have new details on a crime. officers are calling atrocious. they didn't mince words as they revealed more about the man who ran over a motorcycle officer. we have a picture of that suspect for you. 28-year-old austin scott is from reno. he's facing several charges including attempted murder and drug use. >> michael eric son was a victim of a deliberate attempt to murder a police officer. this was not an accident.
a victim of an assault by motor vehicles. >> chp was credited for their help in saving his life. eric son is in critical but stable condition. at 7:08 we have much more ahead on today in the bay. neighbors in one bay area community are fighting a spike in crime. we'll tell you why they think their homes are being targeted and why they are not relying on police to help. plus hundreds of employees in the bay area who have been hacked have to worry about their personal information ahead of tax day. the advice to prevent you from becoming a victim yourself.
jose. meteorologist anthony slaughter tells us most of the bay area except the south bay will be seeing showers today. it is a spike in crime and one bay area neighborhood thieves waiting for friday night to break into homes in the east bay. today in the bay spoke with neighbors who say they aren't waiting for police to help and are taking matters into their own hands. >> it's really disturbing to hear my neighbor had a break in while they were home. >> his wife moved into their dublin dream home a year and a half ago looking for a safe community. now that community is being targeted by thieves. >> we're locking up the house. we're extra vigilant. >> they are a part of a newly formed neighborhood watch in the ranch district. a district with upscale homes where thieves they can find lots of money, jewelry and electronics. >> police say they are the type of criminals who knock on doors
and if no one answers they go around the back and break a window or sliding glass door. they armed the home with security cameras. >> somebody is dumping the fence. the motion comes within 15 feet. >> we're getting to know our neighbors a lot better definitely. it's pretty scary. >> cheryl hurd, nbc bay area news. >> much more ahead on today in the bay. coming up, some bay area employees personal information stolen. what you can do to keep it from happening to you. and an unlikely job for crews working on the old bay bridge. birds giving them trouble. we'll explain. and this morning we're waking up to rain across parts of the bay area. we're going to see on and off showers for the first half of
7:15. we're giving you a rainy look at the golden gate bridge. can't quite see it there. meteorologist anthony slaughter says the showers will dissipate by noon and most of the bay area will see them again tomorrow. tax day is april 18th this year not the 15th. ahead of that hundreds of stanford employees are on edge because their personal data was stolen. cyber security can experts say thieves are getting that information by hacking into outside companies. today in the bay's peggy bunker explains what to look out for. >> it's a message that nobody wants. your tax information was downloaded.
stanford e-mailed employees staying 3500 w-2 forms were downloaded through a third party ve vender. 600 were downloaded illegalille. hackers needed social security numbers and their dates of birth in order to do this. >> and were able to convince the system they were the actual employee. and now you can see how vulnerable we really are. >> stanford alum is the author of "swiped." he says this was not a breach. >> an institution can do everything right and somebody somewhere clicks on the wrong link at the wrong moment. >> one problem is oversharing on social media filling out seemingly harmless information like your favorite color or street you grew up on. >> one of the ways to protect
yourself. no one is going to be conducting a background investigation to determine whether or not that's your mother's real maiden name. >> peggy bunker, nbc bay area news. >> many people will only find out their tax data has been compromised if they are blocked from filing their taxes or their refund never shows up. in a statement, they are providing credit monitoring to all those affected employees. now to a warning if you're taking bart this weekend. it will take a little longer because a stretch of track in the east bay will be shut down today and tomorrow. the closure will be between the bay fair stations. the tracks will reopen just in time for the commute at 4:00 a.m. on monday. there will be a bus bridge to shuttle passengers between the stations today and tomorrow. crews are working to replace more than 2,000 feet of rail there. now to a live look at the bay bridge for you. rainy out there, but still just a beautiful bridge. crews are dodging the rain.
but they are dealing with birds. they hope to lower the second of the old eastern span just like they did the first one a few months ago putting it on barges that will carry it to the port of oakland for dismantling. meanwhile environmentalists will be watching birds. state protected birds rest in the old bridge and they spent millions of dollars to entice them to nest in the new bridge. 200 of the birds didn't budge. now workers have to move as many of them as possible. >> it's a pretty basic principle. if your old home is still there, why would you leave it if you're comfortable. >> the bridge remains open. the bike path is closed from the oakland side. it's 7:18. let's check in with anthony slaughter with a look at our weekend forecast.
i've been working a lot out there. i got you covered in the weather department. let's talk about this weather. you may be a little groggy. that's what we're looking outside. showers coming down in some pretty heavy spots. coming in from concorde. over near 680 through the delta as you head over to san francisco we're seeing light showers. 101 into the north bay light showers. but the south bay is seeing a few peeks of sunshine and a little bit of sprinkles across parts of the foothills. temperatures in the 50s in the entire bay. 57 in san francisco. 58 in the peninsula and the south bay. this afternoon we're going to stay cloudy and cool and we'll see a few showers on and off through the day. aespecially u in the north bay. you'll see the best chance of seeing any widespread rain through the day. the south bay you'll see some
sunshine after about noon we'll start to see the rain taper off for the south bay. now take a look at the big picture. we have a big area of low pressure spinning across the specif pacific. it's going to bring in the moisture. and that rain has been falling since last night in parts of the bay area. a lot of it hanging out in the central valley. we'll see showers taper off. look at the east bay and south bay. drying out this afternoon. we'll still stay cloudy once we dry out. then tomorrow as the system pulls on shore and moves off to the desert southwest, we'll hang on to light rain nap lin collude the east bay and south bay and peninsula. kind of farther south for tomorrow. the south bay and east bay you'll have a better chance for seeing showers into the afternoon and evening hours. 7:00 in the evening tomorrow
still dealing with rain in parts of the south bay and the east bay. so here's a look at how much rain we can expect. about half of an inch or more across parts of the east bay and trivalley. over near the south bay. heading to san francisco, close to an inch as well. the north bay will pick upmost of the rain today but tomorrow the u south bay is expected to see more of the showers. snows headed our way. we're expecting 3 to 6 inches of new snow above 5,000 feet. but again, not a huge snowstorm. it will impact travel. we have our third day of the giants taking on the dodgers. hoping for another win. it will start off great. as we head through the game, we're expecting to dry out. now we have another storm system that's headed our way by midweek. that's going to move in here as we head towards wednesday and thursday. once we get rid of the system, we'll see some sunshine for monday and tuesday. then here comes the next storm system by wednesday. that's going to move in wednesday morning. pushing out of here by thursday
and next weekend another storm system starts to approach the bay area for saturday and sunday. so we're not done just yet with this wet pattern. you'll notice the five-day forecast paints pictures of rain guy skies. i can't rule out a stray shower for monday as the system pulls out. tuesday night and wednesday, more rain pushes back to the bay area. don't put the umbrellas away yet. >> thank you. we have much more ahead on today in the bay. coming up, we'll tell you about the plan to save a popular gathering place in san francisco that's in danger of crumbling into the bay. on nbc:
its bay views, but it might be in jeopardy. here's jeff ranie joe. >> san francisco is a secity th celebrates its maritime past. at the entrance to aquatic park sits the municipal pier jutting into the bay. >> people walk on the pier, segues on the pier. >> it was constructed in 1927. now under the jurisdiction of the national park service it's a vantage point for some of the city's most iconic views. >> we have 4 million visitors walk through the park. >> people fish from it. they love to go there for fireworks. >> she finds beauty in the old structure. >> wonderful place to take pictures of golden gate bridge. >> this pier that was once a gathering place for big events is in a sense no i clinging to a
life preserver. >> the cement is crumbling. it's in such disrepair that it's not safe. >> large strips of the pier are closed to the public. the bay views now include the walls. >> you can see the crumbling sea wall. i was appalled. i was just appalled. >> several years back the national park service commissioned a structural survey u and concluded the pier needs to be replaced. >> it's an extremely challenging project. it's been estimated to cost $64 million. >> maritime national historic park superintendent says the park service doesn't have the money for the work. he's reached out to the city u and congressional leaders with hopes of finding funds. in the meantime, he's sounding the alarm. >> it's just not safe. we can't manage different closure areas. >> i don't like to see something wasted. >> walker started a petition on change.org calling for emergency federal dollars to restore the
pier. >> this would be completely lost. >> what's not lost is hopes the pier can be saved before it ends up on the wrong end of history. much more ahead. coming up, is it a case of officer brutality or just a deputy doing his job. the body camera video of a confrontation just release d by the sheriffs department. plus police uncover more evidence of a dental assistant accused of molesting dozens of children in the east bay. push that tape in and hit play. this is a flip phone. have you seen these before? it's called a compact disc. oh. looks like we're getting a facsimile. what year is it to you? 's old. you'd rather use newer technology? definitely. well, i've got something to show you. this is the 2016 chevy volt. it uses extended range electric technology. the prius hybrid uses battery technology developed 15 years ago. chevy expects volt drivers to get over a thousand miles between fill ups. it's got every technology there is.

it was a wet and wild night last night. the giants and their arch rivals l.a. dodgers played a thriller in the rain. it will be hard to top last night's game. the season is just a week old. just when it looked like it wasn't the giant's night, things turned around quickly and it was a game you're only able to see on nbc bay area. the starting pitcher took a no-hitter into the eighth inning but was pulled because of a high pitch count. san francisco pounced. they were down 2-0 with one man on base. the giants get their first hit by key trevor brown. he tied the game with a two-run homer and this goes into extras. the bottom of the tenth, everyone is sent home and out of the rain. giants win in dramatic fashion, 3-2. >> i thought i had a pretty good shot.
i knew i hit it long. >> they never stopped fighting. it's a great message early when you can come back and show you can come back. >> so modest. today's game three of the series and it's a marquee matchup. baumgartner against clayton kershaw. first pitch at 1:05. one guy who won't be there is clay thompson and he's not too thrilled about that. while clay is in memphis for today's game against the grizzlies, his brother trace is there as a member of the dodgers. he took in thursday night's game but because the warriors are in memphis and then san antonio this weekend clay won't be able to watch his brother play in person. >> awful timing. couldn't be worse timing. ill i'll be watching from memphis. a lot of my buddies will be in the crowd. a lot of family. but i know, trust me, it hurts. terrible timing. >> today's warriors game against the grizzlies tips off at 5:00 p.m. much more ahead.
coming up, getting paid to get some z's. how one company is making sure they have well rested employees. >> maybe start the news a little later? let's talk about the forecast. you can see we're looking at 60s and rain. gray skies across the bay area. we have a full forecast, coming up right after this break.
we have some rain falling out here this morning. you can see some heavy rain across the central valley. right now the heaviest across the bay area is right across the central delta area headed towards yok and brentwood and concorde as well. even oakland will see that momentarily. a lot of this is going to stay concentrated across the east bay and north bay today. tomorrow it will shift a little south. the east bay will see it
tomorrow as well. today it's going to be mostly cloudy in the south bay. 58 degrees right now. peninsula same deal. san francisco dealing with some rain. on and off rain for the north bay. san francisco and the east bay for today. the peninsula will see showers taper off before noon. so if you're headed to the giants game, it doesn't look like it will be dry, but you can see the heavy rain is focused mostly across the central valley. that's going to rotate around that area of low pressure across the pacific. eventually as it moves on shore for tomorrow, we'll continue with this pattern o of heavier rain. this is 4:00 in the afternoon. most of the bay will have dried out by then. we're still talking about mostly cloudy skies into the afternoon. tomorrow morning, 7:00, look at the futurecast number right there. you'll notice we're talking about rain for the east bay. even the peninsula. it will spread out by tomorrow afternoon.
we'll still hang on to some showers by the evening hours tomorrow for the east bay and south bay. if you're trying to make plans, it looks like it's going to be one of those you will probably have to head to san francisco or trying to stay inside and enjoy that. we're talking about rain. it's going to be on and off. indoor activity is a good idea. you'll notice the rainfall amounts from another quarter inch to half an inch. maybe just maybe some of the heavier downpours could squeeze out an inch in napa. but that would be for today. we have some snow expected as well. not huge amounts, but if you're traveling that way, keep in mind you can run into some snow. anywhere from 3 to 6 inches of snow is expected at lake level. but not a huge storm system there. as i mention ed if you're heade to the giants game, it will dry out after first pitch. may see a few peeks of sunshine by the seventh inning. rain is expected towards the end
of the game as we wrap up the end of the game. it went into overtime last night. they may have the same deal tonight with showers possible. this system is going to continue to scoot out of here for the weekend. another system moves in just in time for midweek. so wednesday, thursday, another system will bring some more rain to the bay area. it's going to keep our temperatures cool as well. then next weekend we can see more showers. the extended forecast keeps rain in the picture. still hanging on to some rain. showers expected today and tomorrow. tuesday and then more rain expected by wednesday. back over to you. >> we have been warned, thanks. much more ahead. what goes up must come down. history made as a rocket is launched sbo and out of space. he's had a good two weeks.
