6:00 am
but for how long will we get a chance to dry out? we'll find out in a moment. good monday morning to you and thanks for joining us. i'm laura garcia. >> and i'm marcus washington. mike will have a look at that commute in just a minute. bringing in the sunshine. >> and we're matching. >> coordinated. >> we're excited about the sunshine we'll have in the forecast and we get a look at the fog in dublin, that we are seeing, right now through the tri-valley, that's our one trouble spot, and it's also very cold as we dip to close to freezing in parts of the north bay, as you get ready to head out the door, going into the afternoon. if you're on your way out the door in san jose, it's going to be in the low 40s to start, but reaching into the upper 50s and the low 60s today. mike, you have three spots to highlight. >> three issues that we're tracking, continuing to track this morning. the closure for the off-ramp south 101 at woodside road.
6:01 am
i'll show you video in the next report of what's going on there. i want to make sure we track the other two issues. there's no slowing there, again woodside off-ramp is closed, use whipple instead for the time being. over here the crash south 680 at sunol boulevard crash that's the good news that crash cleared but we have what's rapid as a pallet jack one of the push carts that you see that lifts the pallets at the box stores, that may be in the roadway so we're tracking that at vargas for south 680, all this traffic released through the area that's a concern of mine for the next few minutes and over here, also the third spot we're looking at is west 237 at zanker, involving a big rig first and possibly four other vehicles. we're sending a crew to check that out. you see all that slowing for that portion of the south bay. one other area of concern though is the b.a.r.t. system since we had problems over the weekend, we'll hand that off to you, marcus. >> mike, this is the first work day that the commute happens for those b.a.r.t. riders after the shutdown over the weekend that agency still calling that shutdown a mystery there. kris sanchez is live for us at
6:02 am
the warm springs b.a.r.t. station in fremont with what the commuters can expect this morning. kris? >> reporter: hi there, marcus. b.a.r.t. says it commuters should expect a perfectly normal day today as service was normal yesterday, all day sunday and for most of the day on saturday after that big glitch that shut the system down. because b.a.r.t. doesn't know exactly why the system shut down saturday, there is no guarantee that it won't happen again. in case you missed it on saturday, b.a.r.t. suffered a computer network failure, and the entire system was down for hours. thousands of riders were affected, and the agency now launched a forensic evaluation to try to get to the root of the problem. we asked riders this morning how they're feeling about the shutdown and then about their commute. >> i've been riding b.a.r.t. for five years and there's been ups and downs but most of the time it's up and running, so i really don't pay attention to these little minor glitches that happen every now and again. >> i'm just glad it's up and running. i got to be to work at 7:00.
6:03 am
>> if they don't have it together, why am i even traveling on b.a.r.t.? >> reporter: as you might imagine, during the shutdown, riders were pretty vocal about their frustrations on social media as well, some calling for the governor to get involved in the investigation into what happened. mike inouye and i will be tracking how the commute goes for you this morning. so far so good, if anything changes, we'll let you know. in fremont, kris sanchez, "today in the bay." >> kris, thank you. at 6:03, new this morning, two people recovering after a house fire and explosion in contra costa county. it happened a little before 6:00 last night on sara court and bay point. five dogs and a cat died in that fire. the fire department believes flames were triggered by an explosion caused by honey oil, the type of marijuana product made by burning butane through marijuana leaves. san ramon valley teachers this week vote on a contract agreement reached friday. voting does not begin until
6:04 am
tomorrow, and teachers have until thursday to cast their ballot. that deal includes a 4% pay hike and creates new caps on class sizes. happening this morning in san francisco, a new public defender will be appointed to replace jeff adachi. last month, he died suddenly from a heart attack. adachi was serving his fifth consecutive term. mayor london breed will make the announcement at 9:00 a.m. at city hall. this morning, a special election gets under way in alameda. voters will decide on two different ballot measures regarding a property on mckay avenue next to crab cove. the first measure is carrying alameda act. if passed, it would allow the property to be turned into a wellness center, a 90-unit facility for housing homeless people. the second measure opposes the wellness center, many of its supporters say the land should be used by the park district to expand crab cove. search teams have now
6:05 am
recovered both black boxes from the ethiopian airlines jet that crashed yesterday in africa. this killed 157 people on board that plane. the plane had just taken off and was headed to kenya. eight americans died there as well. preliminary data seems to show that that plane with an unsustainable vertical speed almost immediately. the plane's ceo or the airline's ceo i should say wants some answers. >> it is one of the safest airlines in the world. at this stage, we cannot rule out anything. >> now that plane is a brand new boeing 737 max 8. this is the same type of plane that was recently involved in another deadly crash, an indonesian lion air jet that went down in october, killing 189 people. on capitol hill a battle over the border wall funding is reigniting. this morning, president trump
6:06 am
submits his budget request. he's asking congress for billions of dollars to build a border wall and slashing almost everything else. "today in the bay's" tracie potts joins us live in washington with a preview for us this monday morning. tracie? >> hi there, laura, good morning, everyone. that budget is in. we saw it hit capitol hill just over an hour ago. president trump yes, asking for more money for the border wall and democrats are already saying absolutely not. this morning, president trump will ask congress for $8.6 billion to build a border wall with mexico. >> we have a crisis down there. i think the president has made that case very effectively. >> reporter: it doubles what he's already set aside, six times what congress was willing to approve to end the fight that shut down the government. >> building a 30 foot high structure from sea to shining sea is the most expensive and
6:07 am
least effective way for border security. >> reporter: in a joint statement, house speaker nancy pelosi and senate minority leader chuck schumer say the same thing will repeat itself if he tries this again. we hope he learned this lesson. defense is expected to get a $750 billion boost in the trump budget, but we're told the president will pitch a 5% cut to everything else, education, health care, the environment, and more. he'll likely push to make his tax cuts permanent. experts say that's what's driving the deficit. >> the federal government has enough money. what i would do is reverse the trump tax cuts, reverse the bush tax cuts. >> reporter: also this week, congress is expected to reject president trump's national emergency that allows him to use military funds to build the wall. now the president will veto that rejection, send it right back to capitol hill, where we are told they do not have enough votes to override that. back to you. >> one we'll be watching.
6:08 am
thank you, tracie. >> 6:07 right now. not the swiss alps, not somewhere in the sierra. this is just a few miles from downtown san jose, atop mt. hamilton. an image taken a little before noon yesterday from a camera at lick observatory. there was the hail everyone was talking about in the south bay. >> oh my god, all this ice. >> yes, look at that hail right there, from our digital video journalist jenny gonzalez who shot this video in san jose. kari, this was the talk of the town for a lot of people out there. crazy video there. >> yes, and we are looking now at that system moving away, but you can even see it spinning just off the coast, and all the lightning strikes, and the hail that we had as a result of that system, that did not want to give us a break over the weekend from all of the wet weather. now it has moved away, so we're left with some chilly temperatures and some dry conditions.
6:09 am
it's in the upper 30s in parts of the north bay and inland valleys. only 40 degrees in antioch, oakland and in palo alto. as you get up and get the kids out the door for school in concord expect it to be a chilly start but look at the sunshine in the forecast, and it warms up quickly, so we'll talk about the warmer temperatures ahead in the forecast as we go throughout the week, and mike, you've been tracking numerous crashes. >> yes, we still technically have a traffic alert, this big rig lost the bumper, you don't see it there. it went under the rig and punctured the fuel tank, that's a sizeable bumper which resulted in a couple other crashes behind that. that is over on the shoulder, blocking the woodside off-ramp. we have this fuel fluid on the shoulder there. cal trans crew, ethan is out there, our photographer, cal trans arrived, spreading out the kitty litter, cleaning it up using a broom and a shovel. i think they might leave the big
6:10 am
rig to clear later on the commute. we're watching but woodside closed off of southbound 101 and we have this crash west 237, the other concern blocking two lanes now by the activity, west 237 at zanker jammed up coming off of the 808 interchange. >> looks like a monday morning out there. thanks. 6:10 for you right now. next and new this hour on "today in the bay," snow! yeah, you are used to hearing goal" during a somer game but how snow played a big role in this soccer game. the first question that i would ask is, why on earth wouldn't we pay people equally and treat people equally? >> at 6:25, equal pay for equal play. u.s. women's soccer stars speak out about their new lawsuit fighting for better treatment. and a birthday of sorts, it's been ten years of a bull market. we'll check the numbers when "today in the bay" continues.
6:11 am
6:12 am
why are all these business owners so excited? we're going to comcast. it's ahead of the game, ahead of the curve. comcast business is for me. it's switch and save days at comcast business. right now, get fast, reliable internet for $49.95 a month and save $600 a year. just one more way we take your business beyond. but hurry, switch and save days ends april 7th. i can't wait to go home and tell everyone about it. i just wanna get it right now. guess what i'm gonna do. (laughing) call today. comcast business. beyond fast.
6:13 am
(time check ( right now at 6:13 on your monday morning, we are seeing all the wild weather from the weekend clearing out, and we're going to get some sunshine today, plus pleasant hill going from the low 40s to the low 60s this afternoon. we'll help you make plans for the work week coming up in less than five minutes. here as the headlights headed south past the truck scales and tesla, toward 237,
6:14 am
moving to 237, you may have an issue, big backup, two lanes blocked, we're tracking that as well as another crash farther south in san jose. a very happy monday to you. could be a rough day for the dow. boeing aircraft shares are under pressure after another crash of its 737 max 8. three countries have grounded the plane. they are still flying here in america. nvidia in santa clara is buying mulanex for $7 billion in cash. the jobs number on friday were terrible, 20,000 jobs added to the economy. we're used to that number being 200,000, or 300,000. economists still debating what went wrong. it's also been ten years since the start of the bull market. economists argue over this, too. economic booms usually last around seven years but there's no rule they have to, so does hitting the ten-year mark portend anything? hard to say.
6:15 am
the good times keep coming so far. pure coincidence, it's exactly 19 years since the absolute tippy top of the dotcom bubble. 19 years ago to the day on sunday. is a great symbol of the dotcom bubble. we are so fond of the puppet that i'll run this any time i get the excuse. so really two anniversaries this week, march 10th of the year 2000 was the top of the bubble. uber, facebook, google, iphone, none of those existed back then. today is also the deadline for elon musk to explain to a judge why he tweeted incorrect financial information about his company tesla again, even though the courts had forced him to put safeties in to stop him from doing exactly that. safety measures like he has to get clearance from tesla's board and lawyers before tweeting information about the company, which he did not do. it is possible the court will find him in contempt. because not doing what the court told you to do is the dictionary definition contempt of court.
6:16 am
we don't know what the punishment might be but we'll see today what happens. >> we'll follow it. thanks. >> thanks, scott. look at this. this is exactly the kind of video that makes our producer andy yell snow way! watch how the snow stops that ball inches before the goal there. ooh, ahh, yeah. this was this weekend in germany's top division, the player for hanover actually kicked that perfect shot except for one thing, not enough heat on that ball, right before, oh, wow. you know what the worst part about all of this, hanover lost that game by one goal. >> i thought maybe they were wearing little shorts in the snow. that looks cold to me. >> i guess it's all about perspective. >> it's a part of the game, i guess. we don't have to deal with that today. >> no. >> not even the rain. >> but we had the hail yesterday and a lot of people were talking about that. so as we start out this morning, everyone wants to know, are we finally done with all of that crazy weather? and the answer is, kind of, yes.
6:17 am
it's cold this morning. take a look at these temperatures. we are just two degrees above freezing in santa rosa, and we've seen some fog drifting around the north bay and the tri-valley. it's only 40 degrees in antioch, palo alto and oakland, and in san francisco, 41 degrees. here is a look at clouds overhead and sunnyvale, it's going to be a nice day. now normally we're reaching 65 degrees. we're going to be very close to that. the closest we've been in quite a while, because it has been very cool. mostly sunny skies today, reaching the low 60s, in san francisco today expect a high of 58 degrees and 61 today in napa. the reason why i say kind of yes is because there will be another system moving in, and as we track it, moving into the pacific northwest, we can see the clouds extending off the coast, and this is a cold front that will be moving in. the good news is that we're not seeing a lot of rain with this. we are only going to keep a slight chance of some spotty showers, especially for the
6:18 am
north bay, as it starts to move in late tomorrow morning, and the cloud cover rolls in, there may be a couple of spotty showers near the coast, but most of us will just see clouds moving in, the winds picking up, and then it clears out once again late tomorrow night. so as we take a look at our seven-day forecast in san francisco, our rain chances going up, and then seeing some more sunshine through the rest of the forecast with the city reaching into the mid-60s for saturday and sunday. inland areas will be even warmer, so we go from 62 today to 72 by sunday. so it looks like a nice week ahead. going over to mike, you've been tracking a lot of crashes this morning. >> that's right, kari. we did get a few updates here. the first one the closure over here at woodside off-ramp, the cal trans crew is working to clear that fuel spill. that's the good news. down in the south bay, the problem continues to be westbound 237 at zanker. we have still the report says your left two lanes are blocked by a big rig crash which may have resulted in four other
6:19 am
vehicles involved. you see it going from red to orange. the little bit of change that might result in a better flow. they may have cleared one lane. we'll check that. slowing south 880, coming toward the interchange, that fly-over that may be a factor if things back up more over the next couple of minutes. crash north 101 approaching oakland road, may be some debris left in the roadway. overall the south bay's commute looks good right now. we're also talking about east bay, where we're now almost at half hour from highway 4 down to the bay bridge and the backup formed a little bit looser this morning, but we're going to track that, and we're also tracking b.a.r.t. there is a delay, recovering from a 10 to 20-minute delay, not a computer problem. this is related to some obstruction that was on the track, probably some debris and sounds like they cleared it, we're in recovery mode. kris is following up on the issue we had on saturday with the whole computer shutdown. guys, back to you. >> that was a mess over the weekend. thanks, mike. 6:19 right now. still ahead at 6:30 on
6:20 am

right now at 6:42, you walk out the door and may head back in to get a heavier coat. it is chilly out there and we still have some clouds over the south bay. we'll see that clearing out as we go throughout the day, in evergreen going from the low 40s to the low 60s this afternoon. we are going to see more sun in the forecast. i'll show thaw coming up in less than five minutes. >> morning. a glooming looking dublin but traffic flows smoothly for westbound 580 despite what you can't see. the roadway is moving well. we're tracking a crash in the south bay and update, i'll show you why we have the closure on the peninsula. >> thanks, mike. many people are hoping that their morning b.a.r.t. ride is
6:43 am
on schedule. the first work day commute after the hour's long b.a.r.t. shutdown this weekend. "today in the bay's" kris sanchez is joining us live from the warm springs b.a.r.t. station. kris, all systems clear this morning? >> reporter: all systems are clear, although there is some sort of delay that started here at the warm springs b.a.r.t. station, mike inouye and i have been tracking that. there was an obstruction on the track so not the computer problem that was reported over the weekend. still you might see delays up to 10 to 20 minutes from this point warm springs. now, b.a.r.t. riders were supposed to get a completely normal ride since the trains were running normally all day on sunday and most of the day saturday but because b.a.r.t. doesn't know why the whole system shut down saturday, there is no guarantee it might not happen again. so in case you missed it over the weekend, on saturday, b.a.r.t. suffered a computer network failure, and the entire system was down for hours. thousands of riders were affected. the agency now has a forensic evaluation under way to try to
6:44 am
big deep and find the root of the problem. we asked riders this morning how they're feeling about the shutdown and about b.a.r.t. >> i've been riding b.a.r.t. for five years and there's been ups and downs. most of the time it's up and running so i really don't pay attention to the little minor glitches that happen every now and again. >> i'm just glad it's up and running. i got to be to work at 7:00. >> if they don't have it together, why am i traveling on b.a.r.t.? >> reporter: as you might imagine, riders were pretty vocal about the frustrations on social media over the weekend. some calling for the governor to get involved in this investigation. as i mentioned, there is a delay starting here at the warm springs b.a.r.t. station, 10 to 20 minutes behind is what the scheduled train is how this train schedules are running this morning. not because of that computer problem, but because some sort of obstruction on the tracks. that is now clear, but it takes a while to catch back up. if anything else changes, we'll let you know. in fremont, kris sanchez, "today
6:45 am
in the bay." >> thanks, kris. 6:44 right now. and as of today, new cal train rule takes effect allowing bicyclists to board first on designated bike cars. it is meant to cut loading time and smooth out the boarding process and they say there is research backing it uhm. the policy can shave more than a minute off of your boarding time. parents often allow the use of ecigarettes around children. that's according to a new harvard study. based on survey results from 1,000 parents who smoke, vape or did both. 64% had a smoke-free policy for their home, only 26% banned vaping. researchers say many parents don't realize that vaping exposes kids to nicotine and other harmful chemicals. a new voluntary recall for you this morning by a cooler maker igloo, after a frightening incident caught on home security video. >> new video posted by a florida family shows their 5-year-old

son get into an igloo marine cooler. he was there for a little time with the door open, but eventually, the cooler's latch locked that little boy inside. it happened last weekend as his family was unloading, after a day out on the water. thankfully they heard his muffled screams. initially they couldn't even find him. but his mom wants every parent to hear her warning. >> every thought goes through your mind, what if, what if, what if, what if i didn't hear him, what if i was out front, what if i was upstairs, in the shower. that's why we want to get this out there. >> you see them scrambling. the boy was trapped for about a minute. his parents found him a few seconds after that thankfully. igloo contacted the family and apologized. 6:46 right now. the president is once again going to ask congress for money for his wall. >> scott mcgrew, it's likely the president knows he won't be
6:47 am
successful. >> he wasn't successful getting congress to give him the money he wanted for the wall back when republicans ran both houses, so it's hard to imagine he'll be successful getting a democratic house to do what he wants, considering the last time he asked, the government shut down for more than a month. but he will ask nonetheless in a new budget request, it is also notable that president trump promised to balance the budget, a budget he submitted is not balanced. also this week, the senate votes on whether or not to shut down the president's emergency declaration that would allow him to take money from military projects to pay for a portion of the wall. the talk is the mueller report is close. democrat adam schiff was on "meet the press" on sunday, saying mueller needs to interview the president in person. >> yes, i think it is a mistake, and i've said all along that i don't think bob mueller should rely on written answers. when you get written answers from a witness, it's really the lawyer's answers as much as the client's answer, and here you
