anne makovec, kpix 5. it might not look bad this morning but local law enforcement is warning the entire bay area that a river of rain is headed our way. it's a once in every five to 25- year storm. and as it moves in and settled over northern california expect to see scenes like this from the coast all the way to the mountains. the high country is getting pounded by snow. mammoth mountain got 7 feet of snow in the last two days and it's not done yet. roberta is tracking the storm. >> another two feet of snow will accumulate above 8500 feet. otherwise rain below that. so that's why we're anticipating major flooding in the high sierra and urban and small stream flooding here locally. lots to talk about. let's get to it. live hi-def doppler radar no rain as of yet. in fact, it's clear and it is frigid. temperature-wise into the 30s and 40s around the peninsula just above freezing in redwood city, mountain view, and the
6:03 am
south bay in san jose. around the rim of the bay in the 30s and 40s. it's freezing in the tri- valley. 28 degrees in santa rosa but when you factor in a northwest wind at 5 we have a wind chill that makes it feel like it's 23 degrees out the door. freeze warning in effect until 9 a.m. meanwhile, this is what you need to know on this friday. we will be noting increasing clouds, saturday and sunday, stormy conditions both days with sunday being the worst day of the two. in the extended forecast, more rain ahead. today temperature-wise into the 40s and 50s. that's as good as it gets. we are tracking the incoming storm. we are on storm watch here at kpix 5. and one area already taking action, maria medina in morgan hill. >> reporter: good morning, roberta. we just spoke to a man a few minutes ago and he said he is cutting his vacation one day short because there is an order here at the thousand oaks campground behind me to get out
6:04 am
by 5 p.m. a lot of people live here as full-timers and they are no strangers to flooding. this was the scene just last year captured on cell phone video by a woman who lived here after heavy rain rains caused the uvas reservoir to spill over into the uvas river which runs through the thousand trails campground. it runs under a bridge that's the only way in and out of the campground. they were told to suddenly evacuate and they were only given minutes to get out. >> we just thought about get over that bridge and then we'll figure it out later. >> we'll lose our trailer and everything inside it. [ no audio ] >> reporter: ... they are used to flooding over here. they have heard these orders before. this year, the owner of thousand trails is telling people they can stay at a nearby rv park. and right now, the uvas reservoir is at more than 100% capacity so there is that high possibility that we are going
6:05 am
to see dramatic flooding much more dramatic than we saw in the cell phone video last year. that man we spoke to just a few minutes ago, he said that the uvas river is two to three feet under the bridge right now and normally it's about 10 feet under the bridge so you can see just by hearing that, what they're going through back there. live in morgan hill, maria medina, kpix 5. thank you. we have our entire team watching the storm. roqui has her eyes on the road. >> i do. thank you. let's take a look at the altamont pass our major traffic of the morning so far. and it was bad yesterday. and it's worse today! coming out of tracy you're moving at just 23 miles per hour! and look at this. north tracy boulevard to the altamont pass along 580 westbound will now take you 87 minutes. that's almost an hour and a half there. so this is all due to an earlier multi-vehicle crash involving seven cars here after north flynn road. that's been moved off to the
6:06 am
shoulder. but that backup will cause problems. so if this is part of your morning commute, give yourself some extra time or avoid it altogether. moving over to the dublin interchange, altamont pass to 680 will take 15 minutes. then if you are traveling into the peninsula from hayward to foster city, traffic is moving well from 880 to 101. and then the south bay commute looking good. right? 101 northbound, 280/680 split to highway 237 that will take you 17 minutes. that's our only slow portion of the south bay. 280 northbound and 87 northbound are looking good. but there have been reports of black ice on highway 17 near the lexington reservoir. so watch out for that. and also watch out for that along the altamont pass, as well. moving over now to mass transit, everything is on time. bart, ace and muni. check ferries schedules online for changes on the ferry today. roqui, thank you. now to breaking news out of san francisco where police are on the scene of an officer-involved shooting

6:44 am
but november was revised higher so that made up the difference. the unemployment rate went higher to 4.7%. but that was because more people were looking for work and that's a sign of confidence that people would find working the economy. the wage growth likely keeps the fed on course with its plan for three rate hikes this year as that will likely push inflation higher in the coming months, the fed wants to stay ahead of that. apple's 2016 financial performance didn't meet its goals. as a result the company cut ceo tim cook's pay last year. cook's total compensation in 2016 fell to $8.7 million from $1,203,000,000 the year before. and other top managers -- from $10.3 million the year before. and other top managers had problems as companies missed their financial targets. they still had $60 billion in profits but apple had higher expectations than those numbers. good news for gap. its sales were better than expected in the holiday season compared to the year earlier. old navy did a lot of the heavy lifting with sales up 12%.
