search-and-rescue crews found her car yesterday but there was no sign of her. but her seatbelt was unbuckled so it's possible she escaped. crews are now busy cleaning up debris around the bay area after a powerful storm. potholes like this one are part of the fallout. they can completely shred tires. but you might not have to pay for the expensive fix. you can file a claim with caltrans and they will pay the tab if it's deemed responsible. in big sur mudslides have forced a stretch of highway 1 to close. now the shutdown is spelling major headaches for tourists and businesses. road closed signs are putting the brakes on scenic road trips for a long stretch of the highway. caltrans geologists say boulders the size of cars are a huge risk. some have formed gaping holes in the road and while tourists have to turn around, workers say profit loss is hurting them. >> and we have to turn now because we want to go to -- [ screaming ] >> los angeles. >> there's no one coming
through. you can look around in the restaurant right now, nobody in here. >> locals who work in the area say some of their friends have started filing for unemployment. caltrans says the closure may last three weeks. oh, boy. that's such a pretty area to have it cut off. >> i know. it's a bummer. it's bad for tourists and businesses. >> or if you want to take a weekend ride down highway 1 to post ranch or san simeon, wow, you have to go inland, 101. takes all the joy out of it. right?

north bay. it is dry! our air temperatures right now anywhere from 35 degrees in redwood city, it's 33 degrees in livermore. and it has been hovering there all morning. also, into the 30s in the santa rosa area. san jose in the 30s. meanwhile, near the bay of water where it usually is warmer it's in the 40s. satellite-radar suggests we do have clouds along the north coast. that's all associated with an area of low pressure that computer models wanted to bring into the bay area with rain on thursday. i'm yanking those chances of rain out as it banks off a huge ridge of high pressure. but a cool day temperatures averaging about 4 to 5 degrees below average. 50s common around moss beach, montara beach, all the way into half moon bay and rockaway into the sunset district, as well. 50s common around the peninsula. we jump down to about 54 degrees in morgan hill. 53 walnut creek, concord and clayton. a bit of a breeze 15 during the day as a chill in the air, especially when it's only 50 in
stinson beach but when you get a cold front, the visibility is unlimited you can see to the farallone islands. it's "hump day" and roqui always says it's never too early to start talking about the weekend so that forecast is coming up at 48 after the hour. you got that right. and it's the bay area, so it's never too early to start talking about traffic alerts, right? we have one in san leandro so let's get to the details now. it is northbound 880 before marina boulevard. it's a multi-car crash reports saying it's involving fire cars there and it's blocking the two left lanes causing major delays cars moving in the area at just 7 miles per hour. and that traffic is backed up on to 238 as well in san leandro so give yourself some extra time to get through this delay. otherwise, a traffic alert means it's going to take about 30 minutes or more to clear out of the way so it will take a while and we'll let you know when it is clear. otherwise, looking good once you pass the scene there
heading on northbound 880. here's a live look at that commute if you are heading to the maze so from 238 to the maze, it's going to take you 30 minutes. so like i said, give yourself some extra time there. looking good on the southbound side so if you are taking 880 southbound to highway 92 that's the san mateo bridge here's a live look at that into the peninsula just a quick 14 minutes so that's normal. and if you are traveling on highway 4, expect a pocket of slowdowns from an earlier crash and the altamont pass is slow again. i'll send it to you. >> all right, roqui. thank you. later today president donald trump is expected to take executive actions on immigration. he is visiting the department of homeland security. jackie ward is following this story and has more reporter: good morning. on day one of his presidency, president trump pledged to cancel federal funding for sanctuary cities as part of his immigration reform. and in a state like california, that has nearly 3 dozen sanctuary cities, that's alarming! while at the department of homeland security today, president trump is expected to

crash. there were reports that there were five cars involved now chp saying there are 7 cars involved and you have traffic moving at just 5 miles an hour. so barely moving and it's backed up right past the 238 highway there in san leandro. so if you are heading out this way give yourself some extra time. it is a traffic alert so that means it will take 30 minutes or more to get cleared out of the roadways. so if you are taking southbound 880 to the san mateo bridge here's a live look at that commute from hayward to foster city. that will take you about 13 minutes so that's the good news here this morning. more bad news, the altamont pass is slow again. you're driving at 13 miles per hour coming off 205 in tracy and up to 30 miles per hour once you hit north tracy boulevard. so north tracy boulevard to the altamont pass will take you up to 40 minutes and then it frees up through livermore to the dublin interchange. south bay, 280 and 87 looking good but the slowdown here is on 101 northbound, 280/680 split to highway 237 that's a 14-minute commute. and then let's take a look in
marin county, highway 37 is closed between highway 101 and atherton avenue. it's still affecting the roads. for somebody out partying last night in oakland you don't look tired. >> oh, my goodness. >> it was oakland eat week or something like that? >> oakland restaurant week. >> okay. all right. [ laughter ] >> you ate everything in one night that you're supposed to eat in a week. [ laughter ] this is our hi-def doppler radar. what do you see? nothing. not a raindrop in sight even though we have this right here, it's an area of low pressure. it wants to bring us more rain showers to the bay area. it banks up against a blocking ridge of high pressure. but if it felt lake it's been raining every day in the month of january -- but if it felt like it's been raining every day in the month of january, it has. we are 150% above average in san francisco since october 1 but please be very mindful and continue those wonderful conservation efforts.

pressure but it's going to again divert off the ridge of high pressure and spill a few clouds into the forecast. but that's about it. around the state today 50s in throughout the central valley and starting with fog in throughout stockton, davis, manteca and merced. 54 degrees in monterey bay. in the south shore it's currently 4 degrees going up to 31 and lots of powder and powder and powder and sunshine. 32 a few flurries on wednesday dry conditions and sunshine for the weekend. 7:19 is your official sunrise. you're going to see it! later today temperatures into the 50s. by the time the sun sets it cools off very rapidly. we'll have a wind up to 15 miles per hour. we'll call it partly cloudy on thursday for a brief disruption then the sunshine will resume on friday. full sunshine for the weekend through tuesday. we'll be right back. ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

make sure that we do while we're closing that gap of $1.6 billion is to make sure we are still maintaining and protecting students aid for poor students. the state says it would keep the cal grants program which helps low-income families. the days are numbered for 5 catholic elementary schools in the diocese of oakland. the diocese says that it has to shut down the campuses at the end of the school year citing some financial problems and declining enrollment. some parents are upset about how they found out about the closures not from the diocese but from the media. >> that's how we found out from the news. >> i don't think parents should be told about this on twitter or watching the news. >> the media were not allowed inside a town hall meeting held for parents and students last night. >> 5:55. the storms have passed but we'll be cleaning up for weeks. we'll check the trouble spots.
