saturday. it returns on. highs reaching into the mid-six. coming up in six minutes, a look at the complete microclimate forecast. and your live look at the san mateo bridge. don't look ahead. look at the road in front of you. it's tough to he see as the rain hits the lens here on the san mateo bridge. thank you, kari and mike. it is quarter to 6:00 right now. new this morning, a news group is threatening to sue oakland if it doesn't provide records on the deadly "ghost ship" fire warehouse. that includes the east bay times. they are asking the city to provide police and fire records. it says documents could help explain how the city missed chances to close the build that investigators say was dangerous. 36 people were killed in that fire. we're turning our focus now to the whale found near oakland last month.
it turns out a necrop is sy will not be done. that's because all the storms we have had forced biologists to hold back and that led to the decay car cast. it was dragged out to angel island where it remains. >> the man accused of killing sierra lamar, the trial takes a break today. questions were centered around whether lamar was capable of actually running away. also a defense cross-examined an investigator. it was processed at the scene rather than a crime lab. the defense definitely brought its "a" game when it came to cross-examining the main crime scene investigator in the case. what they are trying to do is show the collection of the was flawed at the outset. so when the defense experts testify as to the dna issues, they're going to say it's not
reliable because the way the was collected. >> the defense is suggesting that the dna evidence found in the suspect's car was also jeopardized. she disappeared in 2012. her body never found. some of the things happening in the bay area today. protecting immigrant tenant rights. plus, black history month kicks off at noon under the san francisco city hall rotunda. and in berkeley, the 1951 coffee shop opens today. the nonprofit provides job training and employment for refugees. so who was the big spender during the 2016 november election here in california? all the ballot, the number one spender, pharmaceutical companies pushing hard to defeat prop 61. it would have given the state the power to negotiate drug prices. bernie sanders supported the measure. but pharmaceutical companies spent $109 million defeating it. and all that money worked.
tobacco companies were next up. they spend $70 to defeat a cigarette tax but they lost. also new this morning, americans are saving more for retirement. fidelity investments reports the average 401(k) balance hit an all time high of $92,000 at the end of last year. that's about $4,300 more than 2015. people were contributing more to retirement the the average climbing to more than 8% what it was last year. >> people also working longer too. 5:48. when you meet with a financial adviser about our re, you assume he or she has your best interest at heart. >> and scott mcgrew, they do, right? >> i have no doubt 99% of them do, sam. they don't work in a bubble. they get played based on what funds they put you in. some pay more than others you can see there is a con. one of the rules passed by congress address that. it is called the fiduciary rule.
a financial adviser has to put your interest first before his or hers. but the republican party just announced it is going to prevent the implementation of the rule as it unspools the dodd-frank act khrgs, again, was put into place after the housing crash created the federal protection bureau as well. that agency has been on wells fargo's case and requires banks to hold up to keep them solvent. 227,000 jobs were added to the american economy in january. unemployment rate, 4.8%. this is an odd jobs number. 6 president trump before he was president often criticized the labor department number saying it was fake.
unemployment rates are statistical estimates. there is no evidence that he is right. the method has been used by both republican and democratic administrations. the market wait to go see what the jobs numbers will be. we're still waiting on words of the president's restriction on foreign visas for skilled workers. snapchat filed its ipo. they have to open its books and let us see the secrets. advertising business is growing fast. it definitely has more regular users than twitter. and it is losing money. it has to figure out how to explain itself to the older people on wall street. many people didn't understand snapchat and what it was and said it was just used for sexting. certain old people think that's what it is. >> it will be interesting for
certain people to see how it is going to grow as well. >> 5:50. good news now. snowpack 73% of average. that snowpack provides a third of california's water supply. the governor willy wait until april's snow survey to announce whether he will lift the drought emergency order. over 20 years. >> that's what is going to sustain us. if we don't have a huge rain next year. >> that's a third of our water supply for the bay area. it is great to see it is above average. we have more snow in the forecast. more rain for the bay area. it's been good to all the showers moving through. but i know it is really slowing
you down this morning. a live look at the golden gate bridge. beautiful view there. that's what you have to deal with. temperatures in the upper 50s. cooler as we go into the afternoon as this cold front sweeps from the north to the south. the east bay stormranger tracking all of that. our mobile doppler truck on san bruno mountain. lighter showers for the north bay. bay seeing bright reds and yellows with the pockets of heaviest rain. with this last wave of the rain moving in, we will start to see much more calm weather for the rest of the day.
passing showers at any point throughout the afternoon. we could see dryer weather for tomorrow afternoon. as we go into the forecast, still spotty showers. and then a second storm system arriving on sunday into early next week you can see it there on the satellite imagery. i'll have more on this as we head over to mike now. a second crash in the same spot. >> you have a second storm coming in. a concern in the tri-valley in the san ramon area. lighter volume of traffic you would expect on a friday. very busy on the chp reports. mostly spinouts. minor fender-benders. this involves a big rig. the first one still hasn't cleared. that's why we have the slower drive from danville heading towards the dublin area. allow time to navigate the area. a look at travel times in the south bay. starting to build for 101, 680.
