5:18 am
toward richmond. there's another cluster over towards the delta. we have snow coming down in mt. hamilton at this point and some of the hilltops. we're looking at chilly temperatures. a little bit of moisture moving through. you may not see some of that rain as you drive across parts of the bay area, but still the roads are wet. and we have some rain earlier this morning. and then as we go through the day, it will still be cool. times of showers only up to 50 degrees today in the tri-valley. it's well below average as we should be in the upper 50s for many of the inland areas. but we'll only make it to 50 degrees today in san francisco. and the east bay, 49 degrees. so with our highs today in the 40s and 50s, some rain at times. kind of hit or miss. at any point during the afternoon, you just have to be prepared for some of that rain that may come down just briefly. and then it looks like we will have a higher concentration of heavier rain for tomorrow. starting out in the north bay. and we'll see that rain also

5:33 am
wins for the team unthor the direction of head coach chip kelly. yed york announced kelly's firing saying the decision was abs chutely necessary, that york was disappointed at the team's performance. had not lived up to the expectations of fabs. kelly is the third 49ers head coach to be fired in three years. chim tosula last year. jim harbaugh the year before that. here's what chip kelly had to say yesterday before the official announcement when his firing was just a rumor. >> i don't think anything surprises me. i don't live my life -- you live my life in vision, not circumstances. i control what i can control. what we can control is how we coach our players and what we do with them and if that's good enough, it's good enough. if it's not good enough, so be it. >> i have saw some of the worse play calling i've ever seen in all 49ers games. you think if he's responsible for it he needs to go. >> i think it might be a little unfair. he's only had one season and kind of what he was given, i
5:34 am
think that maybe he should have another chance, another season or two to try and see what he can do with the team. >> yesterday the 49ers also fired trent bag i can who is general manager of the team for the past 12 years. but fans have lost faith in him in recent years. so much so that someone hired a plane to fi over the stadium earlier this season with a banner calming for him to be fired. baalke released a statement that reads in part, thanking the york family for their support, calling the 49ers the most storied franchise of all of sports. a first class organization that deserves the very best. reporting live in santa clara, rob redell, nbcbayarea. 5:34. new this morning, a man wearing a batman-like mask is locked up after a standoff with deputies. we've been in touch with the sheriff's department in the last couple of hours and they just gave us new information. they were called to the alan rock transit center following calls with a man with a handgun. after that deputies were able to

5:36 am
behind p wheel. and that new law in southern california, you have to mount it against your car, against the dashboard right here if you are to use it. it has to be mounted. once it's mounted you can only use single tap function such as answering a phone call or along those lines. when it comes to the fines, if they catch -- if chp catches you on the road, the first fine is going to be $20. the second fine is $50. so once again, you cannot use your phone behind the wheel and that includes gps, something a lot of folks do. now, another new law people are talking about, going to effect this past november, is legalization of recreational marijuana. we'll break that down in the next hour. live at treasure island, pete suratos for "today in the bay." >> you can read all about the new laws and others that are in effect. we posted the list on the front page of our website 5:56. starting this week, violators will have to dig a little deeper for illegally parking in
