5:00 am
traffic. >> you wanted to wait until it got over -- anything less, my goodness. >> a couple of million would be nice too. >> no kidding. thank you, dave and pam. we did hit the jackpot for the last couple of days. today is a quieter day. let's talk about the coast. a coastal flood advisory until 10:00 this morning. and a high surf warning. waves to 20 feet. high tide at 9 a.m. at the golden gate. speaking of much quieter, there's rain heading down and campbell and sunny vail a little bit of rain. and these just wash out and they are dropping down. the santa cruz mountains one we want over santa cruz. and we're on the waning side of this. everybody is getting rain there. and that looks to be the focus
5:01 am
as we start to see more of a fog pattern. some of the tule fog inland. and a lot of 40s. just too much moisture in the air. and the fog is playing into the mix and a drier pattern. watch out for the morning fog north bay and east bay. cooler lows and below normal temps, 50s for everybody. sal, so far, so good? right now we're doing well. we don't have many accidents at all. and we'll look at the south bay starting with i 280 in san jose. and i'm looking at my chp list, and we don't have anything on it. by this time yesterday we had 30 or 40 dips. we have traffic moving well and this is 237 as you drive westbound on 237 it looks pretty good. 680 out of fremont and
5:02 am
pleasanton looks good. and through livermore also off to a good start. back to the desk. we don't expect a rainy day today. but tomorrow get ready for a new storm. and some parts of the bay area are still under a high surf warning and a coastal flood advisory. alex savidge is in san francisco. tell us about the concerns about the weather. >> reporter: good morning to you. the rain has moved on. and we're not getting wet but there are dangerous conditions near the coastline today. anybody heading to bay area beaches is going to want to be careful. and we'll give you a sense of why. we're near the golden gate bridge and there's a high surf warning in place. and you have large waves crashing ashore. and swells up to 20 feet are possible. and obviously, the concern about coastal flooding as well. be quite cautious if you're near the shoreline. while the surf conditions are a
5:03 am
concern, the cleanup continues after yesterday's storm. here you go. public works crews in san francisco were busy all throughout the morning as this system moved in and dumped several inches of rain in some spots in the bay area. many trees were toppled including one in the pacific heights park near lafayette park. that fell on top of several cars, including a porsche. the tree was uprooted because of oversaturated soil and high winds. flooding a big issue with yesterday's storm. many people put sandbags outside their homes and businesses hoping to divert any flood waters. the owner of a san francisco auto shop says when it rains hard like yesterday. the sewers tend to back up and flood his business. and he says he spent tens of
5:04 am
thousands of dollars making property improvements while waiting for city to enlarge nearby sewer pipes. >> the word flooding is not correct. it's a sewer overflow because the pipes down here that collect all the water from twin peaks are too small. >> reporter: and yesterday's storm also kept the highway patrol busy on the freeways and roadways. there were a ton of crashes because of the slick conditions. the chp posted a video of a patrol car that had to push a stalled car out of the way. it was blocking two southbound lanes of i 101 near 280 in san francisco. and that car apparently hydroplaned and then stalled outs. that's a big concern when we get these storms coming in. and near the golden gate bridge we have choppy waters out there on the bay. and looking towards the pacific and that's because of the high
5:05 am
surf warning that's in place. very large waves crashing ashore. and again as steve did point out just a second ago, the high surf warning is in effect until 2:00 this afternoon. be careful at bay area beaches. >> alex savidge in san francisco, thank you. san francisco homeless advocates are protesting against the city, accusing leaders of not protecting the homeless during the storms this week. homeless advocates tell the examiner that the city has not kept the promise to add 1300 beds when el niño hits. so far there's been no need for the more beds, the city says but they'll activate the homeless plan based on the severity of the storms. there are 1500 shelter beds right now. under the homeless plan, an additional 1300 beds would be spread out at 16 different
5:06 am
locations. we have incredible pictures to show you. an 18-year-old woman suffered minor injuries and she was trapped inside that pickup trucked that gone off the road, overturned and ended up on its side in 2 feet of water. firefighters used air bags to lift the truck to pull her out. she was stuck for an hour and a half. she kept her head above water but the rest of her body was submerged. the man driving the truck was able to get out on his own. the storms have battered southern california. some areas received half an inch of rain per hour yesterday. people had to be rescued when they tried to drive through the flooded roads and became stuck. parts of los angeles experienced minor flash flooding. take a look at how fast the water is rushing. and that forced the closure of streets and parts of the

5:18 am
and that traffic looks good from hercules all the way to the macarthur maze. and driving to the bay bridge toll plaza, it's light traffic. at 5:17. let's go to steve in the weather center. >> thank you, sir. still a few light showers and they are waning fast. and we'll keep a couple of scattered showers in the forecast. fog is a bigger issue than rain. peninsula, santa cruz mountains, down to monterey. there's some holding on. and we'll see the whole system that swung in yesterday. and now drier air is on the way. but we're not completely done yet. the next system will be next friday to saturday. and it might persist to the 21st. we get showers today. and generally, a dry day. and next rain friday to early saturday morning. and sunday looks okay. today, showers mainly to the

time. traffic is moving along pretty well if you're driving out to the 880 freeway. this is a look at the freeway. it's not a bad commute at all. and traffic looks good all the way up to the macarthur maze. and looking at the commute on 80 westbound. traffic is getting busier and not stop and go as you drive through berkeley and to the maze. the traffic at the toll plaza -- much more normal for the commute. back to the desk. no big winner in the half million dollars power ball drawing. that will push the jackpot for saturday's drawing to a record level. we have a report from union city this morning where a store there -- someone bought a ticket worth some money. >> reporter: we're here at
5:33 am
carry's liquor and the ticket is worth $1.4 million. we don't know if the owner actually knows that because the store is closed. the customer missed the power ball number. that means the jackpot rolls over and is expected to be $675 million and that's the largest jackpot in u.s. history. and surpasses the previous megamillions jackpot in 2012. the power ball keeps on growing because there hasn't been a winner for 18 games. powerball fever is going to intensify. and people will be buying up tickets and dreaming of winning. and the chances of winning are slim. 1.292million. >> i don't do the powerball or the lottery at all. >> i know the odds are crazy. but if you don't play you can't
