the first week of february. 60s with 70s in santa cruz. 7:01, is it good or bad on the roads?>> mostly good. i tend to be optimistic but yes it is good for the most part. i want to tell you that we do have some slow spots and traffic on 80 westbound will be backed up from the carquinez bridge to the macarthur maze in some spots. 32 minutes to make the drive and when you get to the bay bridge there is a backup which is typical. on the carpool it looks pretty normal. this is a look at interstate 880 where traffic is not too slow. it has been very slow on the ultimate pass this morning, slower than usual on 580 before 205 and 880 had some problems in hayward but the south bay commute is moderately heavy especially on the 101 and 85.

7:04 am
officers try to stop vehicles and that is when one of the drivers took aim at the officer and hit the gas. the officer was thrown onto the hood before rolling off into the road. he was a narrowly missed by another passing vehicle. this is a clear indication of how reckless and dangerous the driver was. >> it shows how brazen these people are and they are willing to run over a police officer. >> reporter: police impounded a number of vehicles but they do not have anyone in custody yet. the only description that we have is that the vehicle was a black sedan spotted headed southbound on marina bay parkway. richmond police are asking anyone who knows anything about the vehicle or the driver or any other information to come forward. back to you. >> christien kafton, thank you. a popular bakery in the north bay is closed in sonoma

7:09 am
informers to provide a private space for mothers to pump and a reasonable amount of time for a break. the ordinance calls for the private space to also have a sink and electricity. supporters say that two out of three women go back to work after they give birth but only 52% of mothers are given a private place where they can pump. the senate will be voting on a bill that would ban abortions after 20 weeks that is halfway through the full gestation period. antiabortion groups will be watching to see how individual senators vote and will campaign against those who vote against the bill in the upcoming midterms. california senator pamela harris tweeted opposition by saying once again republican lawmakers are trying to take away women's rights to make their own choices about their bodies. add your name if you are sick and tired of republicans playing politics with our reproductive health.

7:12 am
a hayward neighborhood was largely without water after a water pipe broke yesterday. >> alex savidge is in hayward now where crews are expected to resume repair work in a little bit. what is happening out there? >> reporter: at this point there is no activity but we do expect crews to come back this morning to continue their work. we understand for 15 minutes if not longer yesterday water and debris was rushing down the street and some of it was making its way onto people's
7:13 am
property. it is unclear how many homes may have been damaged as a result. you can see that crews are doing repair work on highland boulevard near margaret drive and we expect they will be back out shortly to continue their work. the fire department was called at 11:00 yesterday morning after the water main broke causing the road to cave in. crews stopped the flow of water but dozens of homes were left without running water. it is unclear if service has been restored. i spoke with one man who lives nearby who heard the water line rupture and saw a river of water. >> it was flowing pretty good. there were a lot of by standards and i even saw some neighbors i have not seen for a long time. it was a bit of a crowd draw. a spectacle. >> reporter: i have reached out
7:14 am
to a representative for the city trying to find out more about the water main break and how many properties may have been impacted by all the water that was rushing down the street. we are still waiting to hear back from a spokesperson this morning. we do expect hayward public works will be back out as there is a lot of work to be done to repair highland boulevard. >> the residents are on their second day without water so that is a problem itself. >> reporter: it is unclear, some folks said they had water restored last night but we are trying to get figures on if people are still without water. i have not talked to anybody who doesn't have water yet.>> we will bring you back in in the next hour. the transit authority of marin county says it is not giving up on the plan to speed up bus service. >> the idea would be to have golden gate transit drive on
7:15 am
the right shoulder of the road. that way buses would not have across lanes of traffic to get to the carpool lanes on the far left and back to the right shoulder to pick up and drop off passengers. they do have concerns about narrow shoulders, drainage structures and possible traffic conflicts at the ramps. chp is also concerned about disabled cars on the shoulder and speed differences. sal have you fixed the roads yet?>> i will say this, we don't have that many unusual things which is what people don't like about morning commutes, something they don't expect. if you are going to the bay bridge you will see slow traffic unless you are using the carpool lanes and it is pretty busy from early on this morning starting at 5:30, but again it is not something you would be shocked to see. interstate 880 has not passed in yet following the coliseum
7:16 am
but we have seen slow traffic on the altamont pass and we do have slow traffic from the dublin interchange on 680 headed south out of pleasanton. 880 has been slow with earlier problems so the freeway getting out of the east bay to the silicon valley we have slow traffic. dunbarton and san mateo bridge has also been heavy and coming up in our next report we will take a closer look at the silicon valley commute on the south bay freeway. let's bring in steve paulson with the weather. let's take a look at some not so good numbers. that is the sierra snowpack. this is the snow and water equivalent. for the northern sierra 4.6 inches which is not much. a little better in the central sierra. only 35% in the southern sierra. that is a world of hurt just over three inches equivalent with 24% as you might imagine.
7:17 am
we are doing a little better but not much on the rainfall. santa rosa just shy of 13 inches which is 64%. san francisco 66%, 71% for oakland and san jose at 61% with over four inches. is there any rain today? no, maybe not for about 10 to 15 days it is looking very dry. we have high clouds with a little bit of fog in the napa airport and concord into buchanan. we are not completely out of the woods yet. 30s, 40s and 50s for the temperatures. for some it is cool but not bad for others. hayward 54, there is an easterly breeze in moss beach at 62 and montero 55. 48 belmont, 48 menlo park. 40s in ukiah, monterey, bakersfield, santa barbara it was really warm yesterday, 89
7:18 am
in long beach. santa maria 82 we had a bunch of record highs. the sierra is looking partly cloudy but mild with red flag warnings. 80s again, in fact some of these projections for the next 10 to 15 days are 10 to 15 or 20 above average. palm springs the average high is 73 and they are already 66. nothing below 82 for the next 15 days so that tells you how strong the high-pressure is and it shows no signs of breaking down. if anything it will be getting stronger which is not good for rain. high clouds today unless we have a quick change in the extended outlook in the next 10 to 15 days we will be looking dry. of course this could change but there's nothing showing that now. 60s on the temperatures with a few near 70 in santa cruz and

7:26 am
outside and it will clear your mind.>> exactly, get away from the desk. a popular fitness app may be leaking military secrets. coming up how a soldier's morning jog might be revealing too much information. also, these videos went viral. giant slabs of meat going inside of a market in a shopping cart. good morning, traffic will be getting busy on some of these commutes throughout the morning although 880 is not looking too bad if you are driving into downtown oakland. the weather is not looking too bad unless you want some rain. we do have high clouds with temperatures above average. legend has it, the first voyagers arrived on canoes,
7:27 am
sailing the seas day and night. they knew where they were going, by watching the clouds move in the sky or the way their boats rocked. that's how the waves and stars would speak to them. guide them. sometimes, you can find your way in the world, by getting lost in it. let your legend begin at aulani, a one-of-a-kind disney resort in hawaii
