this is san jose 101 northbound. a little glow, mist in the air. over near is northbound to 680 coming off to the southbound, tow truck still on scene. there's an overturned vehicle there. no major injuries and traffic is getting by. the map shows you down in the south bay it's moving well at that interchange and as we get a wide shot traffic does move well, low clouds and maybe fog developing in livermore and also in pitches along the coast. everyone likes to feel welcome out there and there's a campaign going on right now. bart riders may have changes. >> chris sanchez is at the brand new warm springs bart station in fremont to show us what they're doing. >> reporter: good morning guys, there are about 300 posters aimed at rethinking the way bart people react. by a area rapid transit is what
bart stands for but bart wants it to stand for "by a area rides together." >> you might see 40 other posters from another group that wants to empower people to do something when they see hateful behavior. this was one of the posters born out of that idea to give people a plan of action. the poster shows a woman who appears to be muslim being harassed or yelled at by a man. leah groundy is one of the four friends who's behind the smaller campaign. she explains why she thinks it will be effective. >> i think most people want to push back and defend someone who they see being threatened or harassed but might not know how. >> they have a crowd sourcing funding pays where they want to be able to buy more of those

relief fund and catholic charities still assisting those families. the clock is ticking for victims of the deadly oakland apartment fire. victims have until tomorrow to figure out a place to live the apartment building that burned down was known as a housing of last resort. many people who stayed there had mental problems. they were newly released from prison or they had nowhere else to go. >> 55:03 and the search continus for a hit-and-run driver. the woman was walking along philbert street yesterday afternoon by washington square park when the car hit her. the driver fled the scene, obviously. police don't have at this point a detailed description of the car they're looking for. tragic story now, this out of texas this morning. federal investigators are combing through the sight of that deadly church bus crash in texas, you see the aftermath of it right there. 13 seniors were killed when the
bus collided head on with a pickup truck. it happened yesterday about 80 miles west of san antonio. the lone bus survivor in critical condition and the pickup driver is in stable condition. happening today at 5:04, san jose leaders look at the future of the diridon station. not only is bart expanding but the high speed rail is moving forward as is the cal train electrification project and the diridon station will be the nexus. the study takes place at city hall. working for bikers and walkers, a new phase starting at the tunnel in marin. here's a map to show the various collection projects. today they'll begin drilling. the alto study is attempting to see how much work would need to be done to reconstruct the tunnel to be used for bikers and pedestrians. rates are going up, san

if you're standing in the closet, let me help you out. a view of what you may need, some suggestions here. we need the jacket heading out because it's cool, maybe a beanie to protect your hair because it won't only be windy but also very wet out there and once you get inside, of course, you can take it off. for ladies, boots because it will be chilly today and for the men, how about loafers? we are going to see more of this. cool temperatures heading into the morning but then warming up as this weather system continues to move on off towards the east producing light showers for parts of the bay area but we're only going to measure in a few one hundredths of an inch and it will be out later in the morning. mike, how does it look across the east bay. >> gusty winds will be kicking up. you're talking about a beanie, how about a propeller. it's very gusty out there.
101 in san jose, traffic moving by there. redwood road, there's a crumbling roadway so that's closed. your cut through from castro valley to oakland not available. meanwhile, available cameras by the coliseum, you see it moving around. 880 by the oakland coliseum does shake from time to time as the wind develops and chp gives you the note across the san mateo bridge, be careful on the high-ri high-rise. up next, another legal blow. what's next now for president trump's travel ban after it's dealt an indefinite hold by a federal judge? the live in washington the latest. plus, what goes up gets to go up again. we'll look coming up in business and tech.
it's 5:11. if you're getting ready to head over to lake tahoe, we are looking at light snow falling and right there where you can tell where the lake is over the radar because it's raining over the lake at this point, if you will be heading in that direction, allow extra time to get there. it will be a beautiful weekend once this weather system moves out. we are looking at warming temperatures is the snow we get
today will be melting. as we go ahead in the forecast. going to see beautiful weather for the bay area. i'll show you that in about six minutes. about seven minutes, that's what the dry way says from highway 37 from novato to san rafael. perhaps the mist will affect your commute. you know there's another setback for president trump's newest travel ban. late last night a federal judge in hawaii placed an indefinite hold on the president's plan. tod today today in the bay's tracie potts live with what this means going forward. >> reporter: it mean this is issue is coming back to the ninth circuit court where they rejected the first travel ban because the judge in hawaii has extended his injunction, his hold on this travel ban. it's going to get appealed and when it gets appealed it's going back to the same court the
hawaii judge said not only would he not extend the hold but he would not narrow the scope to exclude refugees, that's something the government asked for. it echoes a similar ruling in maryland that has advanced to a different appeals court so they're taking two different tracks on this. the government argued the travel ban banning people from six different countries in the middle east from coming to the united states was a national security issue. but hawaii and maryland and other states argued that it was a muslim ban and that it violated the first amendment. nothing changes, ban still on hold and it's headed back to the same circuit court that said no in the first place. >> all right, a circular route for that case. thank you very much tracie potts. we're talking about things going around. what goes up comes back down but sometimes it goes back up again. >> scott mcgrew , spacex is
relaunching a used rocket. >> reporter: today is the day it gets to launch a previously used rocket proving it can be done we've showed you videos landing back on the landing pad. this afternoon spacex will relaunch one of those stages to put a satellite into orbit, 3:30 our time from kennedy space center in florida. samsung is hoping for a safe launch of its new galaxy 8 phone the company revealed the phone for the first time in new york wednesday. the most notable feature that wraps open the top. is the battery safe? we assume it is but we assume the battery was safe on the galaxy 7. police have released their report about a self-driving uber in tempe. the report says the automated

for the super bowl. that was looking good for a while. >> they're just so cute and cuddly. oh, my goodness, what a litter there. >> all those puppies, every one, you want to find out where they are now and what they're doing. >> and the scientists just want to crunch the numbers and see how accurate they are. what percentage. >> i just want to adopt those dog dogs. >> we're going to have beautiful weather today for -- >> walking the dogs? >> walking the dogs later on today. as you head out now and you want to take the dog out it's misting and drizzling in parts of the bay area but not so much in san francisco. we are seeing low clouds in spots, low visibility and as the seven-day forecast comes up at the bottom of the screen you'll see we will have a slight chance of rain today and after that it will be clearing out. here's the live look once again as we will have milder temperatures this morning compared to yesterday morning. the visibility is lowest in the
peninsula and also for parts of the valleys but we'll see the winds kicking up as we go through the day as well. 66 degrees in free month, 7s in antioch. and san mateo 64 degrees. ingleside 59 and 69 in santa rosa while sonoma is up to 70 degrees. we see this rain moving through now. look at what happens at 10:00 this morning. we'll have rain and snow but the system winds down and for early tomorrow morning we start out with low clouds and fog, sunshine during the afternoon and then on saturday still bright and sunny several weather systems staying close to us.
the winds will be the issue today so if you're wearing a dress like this, make sure you keep your arms down winds brushing in at 20 to 25 miles an hour. as we go through the day really increasing as we look at the coastline, half moon bay 30 miles per hour winds. there may be gusts up to 45 miles an hour gusty winds as we transition from low pressure to high pressure and warming temperatures for the weekend we'll still see the winds tomorrow afternoon at 20 to 30 miles an hour. today we have the wind advisory in effect for these areas shaded in brown. that mostly includes hills and coastline for today. still breezy tomorrow, 68 degrees and temperatures holding steady. for the inland areas, that's
when we will see temperatures warming up as we dry out. as we head over to mike, checking in on some of those traffic cameras. >> shaking around just a tad and chp gives the advisory for the high-rise for the san mateo bridge. we're still tracking this crash in san jose but the crews seem to be hon the move now. transitioning from the transition ramp 101 southbound to northbound 680. no slowing, i'll check the progress and we'll bring you the live shot as things change over there. travel times haven't changed much. an easy drive through oakland. the camera shaking by the coliseum, the wind catching it. san a fell, the north bay, those travel times, you're at speed, knnovato down to this shot. low clouds along the coast. 101 does move smoothly. earlier mist was on the lens but

court-martiming up, when yo chance today, check your game closet. target is recalling thousands of tic-tac-toe games. they're games sold only at target from december through february. the magnet cans become detached from the game pieces posing a choking hazard for a small children and a magnetic ingestion hazard. if you have one, return it to a target store and you'll get a full refund. just as we learned housing prices jump 5.5% in february, we're also learning that less people are buying homes. many people continue to rent rather than buy simply because they can't afford to. however, a new study shows that in more than half the country's housing markets they studied, wage growth was greater than the jump in housing prices, one realtor says it's just hard for people to buy. >> so this great mismatch between home price growth and income growth is bringing
additional challenges to people renting and wanting to convert to ownership. millennials are turning away for a different reason. their life-style drives them to rent rather than own. 5:25, nbc bay area responds to a san rafael man who had a dispute with his landlord about a document. >> chris chmura is here with the story. >> reporter: last year, robert robinson moved out of a san rafael apartment. he anticipated getting back most of his $900 security deposit so he was surprised when he didn't. >> they said, no, you owe us. they were nasty. we were totally blown away because we thought, like, you know, yeah, the check's in the mail, this, that and the other, not that we owe you money. >> reporter: the apartment complex was charging robert to replace the carpet because of small stains but robert argued those were there when he moved in. the apartment complex then produced a signed document it says proves robert was responsible for the damage to
the carpet but robert says the signature on that document isn't his. tonight at 6:00, we'll share that document, what it said and we'll put in the front of a forensic handwriting expert. we'll tell you what the apartment complex had to say. if you have a consumer complaint, call us, the number is 888-996-tips. or nbcbayarea.com/responds. this next story has a lot of people talking because it has to do with arguably the most beautiful man alive, certainly one of them, and his likeness. >> let's get to the video. >> yeah, let's get right to that video. what could be more flattering than having an airport named in your honor. maybe the statue that comes with it. >> portugal renaming its airport for hometown hero and soccer star cristiano ronaldo. >> that's ridiculous. >> they unveiled the bust of renaldo. they're calling it a bust bust. side by side, you be the judge. >> it's busted up. >> the statue of the newly named

proposing the first gas tax increase in the state in over 20 years. the governor wants a 12-cent increase on a gallon of gasoline, 20 cents per gallon for diesel, 4% increase in the diesel sales tax. he wants to install a new annual transportation improvement fee on regular vehicles that run anywhere from $25 to $175 per year, he's proposing a $100 annual fee on zero-emission vehicles and over $700 million from the general fund to repay loans for the transportation fund. that money would go towards fixing potholes, other highways, bridges and culverts would also help improve public transportation, walking and biking trails and the reduction of traffic on major commute routes. governor brown says his proposal would cost drivers on average less than $10 a month and would reduce the cost of repairs to our cars. >> that's what it's about, common sense, there's not a choice. the only choice is do we borrow from our -- the next generation
or belly up to the bar and say here's what it costs, we're going to pay it. >> republicaning in sacramento are criticizing the governor's proposal coming up, why they think this plan is a bad idea. coming up, bob redell, today in the bay. a developing story we're following, a search for a killer in san francisco. police stepping up patrols in the city's ocean view neighborhood after a tripping shooting left a 65-year-old woman dead. pete suratos join us live with the details. a and two other people were also shot. >> reporter: yes, two other victims sustained non-life threatening injuries but sfpd are looking for one or two suspects in this triple shooting and there's a san francisco supervisor who represents that

order. scott mcgrew has been examining the president's first 100 days in office and today we're on day 70. >> on day 70, ivanka trump is taking an official position in the white house. >> that's right, good morning to you. by making it official, sam, the trump administration will be able to counter criticism the president's daughter is showing up in places that she shouldn't. here she is next to german chancellor angela merkel there. it wasn't clear exactly what her role was. now, there's nothing wrong with the president's family member working in the white house, kennedy did it, eisenhower did it, but by making her an official unpaid employee ms. trump now has to abide by white house ethics rules. ms. trump already transferred control of her clothing and accessories brand to a relative. her new title will be "assistant to the president." we don't talk much about the senate investigation into the russian connection. it's been pretty quiet but no
more. the two senators in charge, the lead republican and ranking democrat making a show of working together to find answers. >> we need to look at campaign contacts in either committee with russian government or russian government officials that might have influenced in any way shape or form the election process. >> that was senator richard burr, republican chairman of the senate intelligence committee flanked by mike warner, the democrat and vice chairman. they will be taking action while their counterparts in the house, devin nunes and mike schiff, are accomplishing very little. nunes has been under fire after he secretly met with a white house official at the white house. the worry is he is not conducting a fair and open investigation. so who was that white house official? white house press secretary sean spicer says he's looking into that. it does seem like a pretty easy question to answer.
