5:41 am
actually run out. if you want to maximize your potential aid, submit that fafsa as soon as possible. >> what prevents people from getting financial made? >> >> reporter: it's usually us. we do it to ourselves. research shows as much as $2.7 billion in free federal grant money goes unclaimed every year. and that's because of incomplete or unsubmitted fafsa forms. people say i'm not going to get it so i'm not going to fill out this form. the department of education says it's not just based on income. it depends on the size of your family, whether there are siblings in college or parents close to retirement as well as the price of tuition. and also some people say i didn't get aid last year, so i'm not going to do it this year. but if your circumstances change, your award could be different. and even if you didn't get the pell grant last year, you could still be eligible for

5:48 am
stretch. delays past 24. 7-minute ride in the yellow. westbound 580 tough for drivers. traffic backed up clear into tracy along westbound 205. all problems in the clearing stages but 52 minutes from 205 to 680. typically that should be about 25 minutes with no traffic. right now southbound 880 an earlier accident not blocking lanes causing delays though for drivers heading into hayward about a 14-minute ride in the yellow. hat's a check of your traffic; over to you. let'si'm keeping an eye on hi- def doppler to see if there's snow flurries in sight. things are clear but to the north there's a chance for snow. check this out. there's a little bit of a storm system associated with a low that's to the east and this is the outer band and it could creep down in bringing up to 2 inches of snow in the sierra for the higher elevations because it is chilly out there this morning. so we are already seeing those
