5:00 am
i'm in for laura garcia-cannon. i feel out of sorts. >> it's a monday. it's nuts. >> you have guys been looking at this, this is a treacherous last 24 hours in the bay area. eye-opening as well this is video just in from berkeley. these are snowflakes in berkeley. forecaster, vianey is in for kari hall. those are words we usually don't put in the same sentence. >> this cold front was on track to bring snow to lower elevation areas. we saw hail. you see that snow in berkeley. they got just under an inch of rain. but last night, as that cold front swept in, that rain quickly turned into a snowy mix. that's how we turned out with that crazy video. i know especially considering that we're in march already, guys. but look at this doppler radar now, it's showing a lot of activity, scattered showers expecting to push through the north bay, half moon bay.
5:01 am
the good news is is that as the storm is expected to make an exit, we are on track to see a drying trend in the forecast. however we're still seeing snow in saratoga, mt. hamilton as well, and lake tahoe saw just over 13 inches of snow. we are definitely expecting the chance of possible hail and sleet over the next couple of hours. that's going to make for an even more dangerous commute, paired with colder temperatures. for a closer look at how commuters are doing on the road, let's get a check of mike. >> wet roads around the bay behind me. ice, snow and sleet as well. it will be slippery for a number of reasons around the bay. definitely cold outside. those conditions are rife for other issues, as far as freezing up in the north bay. looking over at the traffic frozen, it's not because of the wind, though there's an advisory for the bay bridge. let's look at the live shot from
5:02 am
emeryville. we had a crash reported on the top of the incline, another disabled vehicle in the backup. they have one of those removed. the second incident, i think, they still have to have another traffic vehicle removed from the roadway that had the toll plaza completely filled in now a half hour early with a slow drive. the bay bridge is a tough one. back to you. this rare sight of snow and hail had a lot of folks on social media this weekend. katherine sent a picture of hail on south 280 in san francisco last night. we wanted to see more of your photos and videos. tag us on twitter, instagram or share them on our facebook page. you can check ours out as well. e-mail your pictures and videos. >> keep them coming. a busy day in washington, d.c. on tap after weeks of delay president trump is expected to sign his new executive order on the travel ban today.
5:03 am
this as the president demands a congressional investigation into his claim from this weekend that the obama administration wiretapped trump tower. we have a travel ban and a tweet storm over the weekend. edward lawrence joins us live from washington where everything stands right now. >> reporter: the travel ban will remove iraq from being a country in that ban. and it will allow folks who currently have visas to come back into the country, which will help universities around trying to get their professors back. the president offered no information about what happened in terms of his phones being tapped, but this sent the intelligence community scrambling. >> reporter: president trump returns to washington after asking congress to investigate claims of wiretapping ordered by former president obama during the election.
5:04 am
mr. trump made the allegations on twitter over the weekend, but offered no proof to back up the claim. >> lets find out. let's have an investigation. if they're going to investigate russian ties, let's include this as part of it. that's what we're asking. >> nbc news has learned fbi director james comey asking the justice department to publicly reject the claim that former president obama ordered the wiretap. the former director of national intelligence says there was no secreted court order to tap mr. trump's phones. >> i can deny it. >> there's no fisa order of anything at trump tower? >> no. >> democrats argue this is a diversion. >> this president is the deflector in chief. anything to change the subject from where the heat is. >> reporter: deflecting from revelations that attorney general jeff sessions met with the russian ambassador but failed to disclose it. >> i'm not going to be part of a witch hunt but also i'm not
5:05 am
going to be part of a cover up. >> reporter: republicans focusing on repealing and replacing obamacare. >> that travel been is expected to be signed at the department of homeland security later today. from washington, edward lawrence, back to you. we're about to see some history being made in the north bay this morning. the golden gate ferry service is expanding for the first time in four decades. >> some history being made today. we go live to the terminal with details on what will now be a daily event. folks in tiburon are saying finally. pete suratos, good morning. >> reporter: that first departure set for 5:00 a.m. at the tiburon ferry landing it will be the first ferry from tiburon to san francisco. they'll make history. the first time in four decades that they're expanding into marin county. all of this started back in 2015 with discussions between blue and gold fleet and the golden
5:06 am
gate ferry. blue and gold fleet were handling those commute runs between san francisco and tiburon. two weeks ago the board of directors approved a sublease agreement to take over this line. the ferries play a huge role on reducing traffic congestion on the golden gate bridge and highway 101. blue and gold tickets will be accepted for now, the ferry plans to bring the clipper fair system as well. in a half hour, the first ferry will beparting behind me. live in tiburon, pete suratos, "today in the bay." commuters today will have a chance to offer their ideas for easing congestion through western contra costa county. the committee is gathering input for solutions on congestion on busy interstate 80 along with bu bus and train traffic through richmond. this is the second of six meetings that will be held between now and march 21s.
5:07 am
no more cutting corners. starting today concord is getting tough on drivers who use side streets to circumvent commuter traffic. drivers are no locker allowed to make turns from clayton road on to four parallel streets. those limits will extend through the morning commute. this following a request by neighbors annoyed by the cut-through traffic. it is 5:07. we are under a microclimate weather alert. i think this is the shot of the santa cruz mountains. it's still fairly dark out. there we're seeing some rain in that area. earlier today we did see some sleet as well. if you have plans to make your drive up there, take your time, go ahead and leave now because we're still seeing chilly temperatures, so there's a chance of hail in the forecast. 39 degrees right now in santa rosa. san francisco, 45. san jose, 42. now near half moon bay at about 46 degrees.
5:08 am
now, there is still a winter storm warning that will remain in effect through 10:00 a.m. today. that means they have the chance of seeing more snow showers, so those roads are probably not expected to clear up for the next hour. by tonight, we do have some good news on the way. doppler radar showing plenty of activity out here in the north day, san rafael, santa cruz mountains. free monday catching some rain. we'll keep those scattered showers through your early morning commute. unfortunately it's going to keep the wet roads out there. doppler radar showing a little bit of that snow cover coming down in saratoga and also out near mount hamilton. we're seeing some snow on the radar. it was definitely a very impressive weekend. i know you want to know when are we going to be clear from the rain and even the snow? i think people enjoyed it when it came down. driving in it is a different story. looking at about 8:30, the radar starts clearing out.
5:09 am
we still get a few showers over santa cruz. if we fast forward, we see lingering showers in north bay. the good news is by lunch hour, we should be welcoming a drying trend in the forecast which should last a couple days longer than we've been seeing. mike? >> right now roads are wet, maybe some ice on the road or some frost. we saw snow in the videos we've been showing you. a light flow of traffic. a new crash north 101 in moffitt. wait until chp arrives, we'll give you more detail, plan on slowing right now. if this is your route, the bay bridge, better news and bad news. the better news is that the crash has cleared from the tower, so has the disabled vehicle. we see speeds improving on the span improving already. but you can take b.a.r.t. under the water, even though the sman

5:13 am
good morning, bay area. it's 5:13. we're waking up to a microclimate weather alert. that's because we're still seeing showers. yes, those chilly temperatures remain in the forecast. san francisco, 45 right now. san jose, 42. santa rosa in. 30s. we'll talk more about the snow that's still lingering and also when we're expecting sunshine in the forecast, that's coming up in a few minutes. i have to show this. the rain on the lens is one thing. the metering lights are on. we don't expect them for another 20 minutes. so the backup approaching the bay bridge toll plaza because of an earlier crash on span, the two incidents have cleared but there's the backup you're greeted with. >> do slow down this morning. happening today, east bay neighborhoods may have a solution to a pesky pest problem. those insects are posing a threat to the citrus trees. according to the "mercury news,"
