i'll be tracking that as we head into tomorrow. right now, it's really soggy out there. we see the wet roads toward evergreen. cool start, low 50s, headed into the upper 50s by noon, but we will get a lot of sunshine today. we'll talk about our chance to dry out and what else is ahead and mike, you're seeing scattered reports of flooding. >> the opposite of dried out. we have big standing water, big puddles in the south bay, reported 280 around saratoga, 17 and hamilton, both affect the off-ramp, i warn you for slicker conditions. all the radar activity kari is talking about over here, for folks coming out of tracy, but that leaves that green highlighting still for the wet roads. wetter over here in the east bay and tri valley, but thea sees t. in san francisco, a solo car spinout north 101 at vermont. as you get toward san francisco be careful because there are more traffic andng busy, even n

what the heck are you doing out here? >> coming to see this beautiful -- >> reporter: coming to see that. >> yeah, coming to feel that, not see that. >> reporter: this weekend's high surf warnings included advisory for choppy conditions inside the bay. this is what it looked like at ft. point at the foot of the going going. the city of san francisco took the proactive step this weekend of asking people to stay away from ocean beach warning the forecasted waves at high tide could extend to the sea wall. the evening waves looked ominous but there was plenty of beach to walk along. there were some san francisco residents who came out to see how big the waves are. >> just the thought of the waves getting really huge, because we have a hugend no one ever sees big waves like that, that often. >> we were watching the reports last night and they said it's going to be like 50 feet, it was going to hit the sea wall. i was like, we got to see that. >> all of that surf froze there in town, but mavericks will not
go ahead this week as many had hoped. initially the waves were too rough for the competition to be held. later this week, they aren't likely to be big enough o even consistent enough. the good news is that organizers say that january is typically the best month for mavericks, so fingers crossed. 4:34 right now. the latest storm is bringing that snow to higher elevations in the sierra. some places are getting more than a foot of new snow from the storm. >> for anyone daring to hit the roads, strong winds are also a concern especially on interstate 80 near donner summit. one driver talked about trying to make it home before the worst of the storm arrived. >> it's rocking and rolling. i'm glad there's no ice yet. the ice will set in, in about a couple hours. >> because this is a warmer storm, the snow is supposed to come down as more of a rain and snow mix in lower elevations. to always keep one step ahead of the wild weather, download our nbc bay area app.

showers, especially across the north bay. i wanted to give you a closer look at our storm ranger mobile doppler radar, where we are seeing some light rain moving through parts of marin and southern sonoma county and we're also seeing some spotty rain across parts of contra costa county, as you get ready to drive, but the rain is just enough to have you turning on the windshield wipers and just kind of clears out. i'll also be tracking another system moving in. this one will keep the waves high along the coast today, but as it moves in, this looks to mostly be a north bay rain that moves in tomorrow, but let's look at some of our rainfall totals. i picked out a few spots and boulder creek, the santa cruz mountains had about two and a half inches of rain. mt. tam an inch and a half there. pacifica an inch and a half and cloverdale close to two inches of rain. san frarteansc of an inch. most of our rainfall totals around the bay area were anywhere from half an inch to about an inch and some of these
were the higher amounts. we're still going to have the high waves along the coast today, and up to possibly 40 feet over the next five days. longlasting waves that could continue and never turn your back to the water. best advice, no swimming. it's too rough for mavericks, as we'll see the high waves continuing throughout the day. our highternoon after all of th clears out. upper 50s for the peninsula. as you are getting dressed this morning, you need to make sure that you'redyt and a jacket wils we head through the forecast, we'll see another wave of spotty, light showers moving in, but mostly that will be for tomorrow morning, and to the early afternoon for much of the north bay. so i'll be tracking that, as we head over to mike, drivers should take it easy. it's slippery out there. >> as you've been telling folks i borrowed storm ranger, that's the red arm sweeping around here and the radar showing activity through the central valley.
it pushed through the entire bay area. all of the roadways having been hit overnight. the green road weather index shows you where things are tougher in portions of the south bay, where we had flooding at 280 off-ramp there is. san francisco and vermont adwa be blocking your fast lane, eetting away from the bay b another crash reported and may headed toward powell just low os and fog, we have a lot of moisture in the air and the bay bridge we have the cash lanes which will move better after both have an additional toll taker in the morning. we often see damp roadways there. weather not affecting b.a.r.t. or the ferries. no delays and service restored for caltrain after the weekend work. >> thanks so much, mike. making fun of someone's tragedy cost three construction workers their job. they were hired to clear the wreckage of the camp fire in paradise, but they posted insensitive pictures of homes destroyed and they were fired. one photo showed the man sitting on a burned out rv pretending to
drive, another featured a plan playing on a burned fire truck toy. one picture was too offensive to show on television. the construction company the men worked for, big crane and rigging, called its incident an abhorrent event. the destruction of the camp fire didn't just displace tens of thousands of people but many pets as well. >> we report on how the animals are being helped. >> reporter: the flames from california's deadliest and most destructive wildfire killed 86 people and destroyed more than 14,000 homes. and inheir best be. >> reporter: lonnie walker is in a desperate search for his golden/lab mix and maybe a way to ease some of the grief. >> i lost the most important thing in my life, and that's my wife. the dogs mean something to me, being able to find them, but can't bring back the really most
important thing in my life. >> reporter: at the height of the camp fire crisis, more than 2,000 animals were displaced, about half are still in shelters. their owners with no homes of their own. >> is it's incumbent on us, it's our duty to take care of them. >> reporter: norm leads the north family animal disaster group, 300 volunteers on the front lines of pet wal fare going well beyond area shelters, navigating the fire zone, tending to animals left behind with food, water, and lots of love. >> they might have lost everything, they come back and there's this happy and they're smiling because their animals are still alive. >> reporter: diana harriman was finally allowed to return home after and her thelma safe. >> i wanted to get in here and touch her and pick her up and tell her it's okay. >> reporter: it's gratifying work for this group of volunteers. >> you see a lot of hard things out here and you got to do your best and know that you're trying
to help. >> reporter: bringing hope in the if you ary form of unconditional love. >> you're very good. >> reporter: steve patterson, nbc news, paradise, california. >> heartbreaking for those people. 4:53 right now. coming up here on "today in the bay" -- >> the number of stolen cars here is simply mind-blowing. we have a new breakdown, plus some new technology t from your car. i'm consumer investigator chris chmura. first, happening now, you may want to strong up ock up on postage stamp. the u.s. postal service is requesting a price of five cents, the biggest price increase since 1991. if approved, the new rates would go into effect next month. forever stamps are valid regardless of the price you pay for them. more news after the break.
