morning with the rain spreading down to heyward and south of that. later in the day everybody is going to get wet. winds are picking up to the southwest about 20 miles per hour. let's take a look at the doppler, you can see what looks like scattered rain, some places it is coming down pretty good and it will continue to come down later in the day and you can see another band of moistures right now and even in the east bay it is beginning to spread south. we'll all get wet especially late new afternoon. this stream is moistures it is been steady. today a cold front will push all that moistures south. that'll you can see this morning there is not much happening down this there. that'll change by mid afternoon. expect things to be windy and rainy today. we have flash
flood watches meanwhile. north bay additional 1-2 inches of rain and possible flash floodings and the total of this has been epic. ken is in marin county and it is perfectly situated as it is always is for southwesterly rain. it has really dumped on them, 3 quarter of rain. san francisco almost 2 inches and in san jose not impressive, they have not gotten much in the last two days at all. we'll have the complete forecast for you in just a few minutes. first, let's round up what's happening out there. >> mark kelly checking out some of the problems spot. mark. >> reporter: so we are here at 12 and 121 of the central expressway of those two roads. it is gotten a lot deeper
since we have been here, it is covering my foot and i am not all the way in it. we have got this is the shelf fire station along 12. good amount of water there and it continues to piling up. they have half an inch of humane over night. we are seeing low creek and water way just flooding. so for some folks living their these areas, it is becoming too much to bare. >> this is running 3 feet from the dirt ends and that's our bac. >> if you can see the water there then it is time to genthner serious. genthner serious. so if you are in that neck of the woods that road is not supposed to
open until noon today. the national weather service expects to list this flood watch for this county around 3:00 this around. now, we are going to to it over to roberta, she's in marin county, how is it looking over there? >> reporter: it is currently raining sideways. the wind is increasing at 17 miles per hour. we just got to get rid of this umbrella. the fog it settling in as well. take a look at what we saw a few minutes ago. this is very important because it is a great indication that the ground is now saturated right here. we have seen over a foot of rain since friday alone and heavier rain is in the forecast. we are seeing at least of 5 inches of rain expected in the north bay mountain between now and tonight. now, right now
you can clearly see that we are already seeing the accumulations right here in the north bay. that's why the ground is saturated so we are anticipating the possibility of more mud slides and more rain also down trees and also the possibility of down power lines. we do have more rain in the forecast here and with the lowering ceiling you can imagine that we have delays at the local airport. repo marin, kpix. >> that one came crashing down in sacramento and it did you can see there crushing the backseat and trunk of that car. if you are heading to the airport this morning, it is a good idea to call ahead. the sfo delayed program is in effect.
>> you can see all the update any time on your smart p to view the doppler. rain water is get ng the structure underneath the road way along the new eastern span. that can cause corrosion laeging the bridge. some water is going to get in. >> we got a little trouble for the governor and the lieutenant governor as well being caught up in the investigation. >> they're receiving improper donation from the sacramento lobby. jerry and gabby are expected to get warning letters and accused of not disclosing costs. >> we sat down with political
willy brown. and talk to them about these rules of what you cannot take and what you have to report. how complicated are they and how much power did these lobbyists actually have. >> you know the position where you cannot accept of water if it is ex tenned to you and connected with the legislature. it is completely unrealistic and it is impossible frankly to be strictly obedient there to. you can have the best intentions and your conduct can be misintrepted. misinterpreted. >> they have a lot of influence because they have the dough. >> now it is interesting to know, last year lobbyists spent $177 million on record convincing lawmakers from the governors on down to going their way and that includes people in
unions and environmentalists. >> that's so much money. >> wait, wait, well, that's before they go into the political contribution that they make into the campaign and the ballot measures. >> that's all when expense closed -- it is not quite disclosed yet. same-sex marriage eric holder -- to the justice department. holder announced that same-sex spoupss cannot be compel to testify against each other and they're eligible to file bankruptcy together and has the same rights. in another area a new bill is about to go before the state senate mandating a kill switch of all new cell phones. >> the purpose is to detour cell phone theft and accounting for half of robberies in san francisco.
the bill requires any smart device to including something to render it possi now, it can be weird if they pass it. all of sudden we need a california's only cell phone one that has specific requirements to sold here. that can probably up the price of cell phones. well, he said there is a similar bill right now in new york and that you know as both of these markets jumping on board, it will move nationwide. >> it might results in cell phones costing more. if you add in a feature like that it is going to cost more, the question is is it less than what you pay when your cell phones get stolen. on that note, i believe cell phone companies making about $80 billion a year in sales and some of the sales are people that have lost and have their phones stolen. >> and insurance. >> there is a real questions
among lawmakers of what the carrier mode on this. coming up it has been 50 years of the u.s. debut, next, we walk down this memory lane of this hard core bay area fan. team u.s.a. eyeing another gold medal in sochi, the results are in, we have a spoiler alert after the break. team u.s.a. eyeing another gold medal in sochi, the results are in, we have a spoiler alert after the break. ,,,,,,,,

>> is that the reason that we don't have a resolution of this because the governor and the senators have yet to come up with a plan. they criticize everything that comes up. >> but, there is no resolution to it on a permanent basis, it is a process that keeps evolving and every time you create a new city or a new neighborhood you got to understand, you need water to make that neighborhood work. >> why are politicians, they don't want to talk about it in election year or non election year. >> it is difficult and it is expensive and they get distracted. >> and they need help from the climate itself. just like we have been talking about the drought in california and we all know wondering how the rain is suddenly coming. period and that helps us. there is not enough snow. the rain comes it puts off the debate. >> no, it literally fuels the opportunity to keep growing and
managing, it does not put off the debates. the debates still there because you cannot make rain. >> but you can pray for it and hope for it and fight for it when it gets over the ground. >> all right, we'll continue to follow that, it is going to be interesting how this rain plays apart and it will ease the whole water war back. >> we'll be talking with an expert coming up so stay tuned. >> we'll be right back.

hours. you can see snow coming down and that's what they have been having the past 24-48 hours here. the folks here are excited because it gives them fresh powder to start for the weekend. unfortunately, what's happening in the past hour and a half is all that snow has now turned to rain and now we are getting rain at this high elevation which means it is going to melt. some of the snow they waited so long to get over the past months. it is going to keep some of it here quite a bit. that's a concern if this rain continue and this higher elevation is going to melt a lot of the snow they sat here and waited for and finally got this past weekend. for now, it is as usual the employees are arriving and it is snowing and tubing and skiing and snow boarding is arriving soon and they're taking advantage of this fresh powder. reporting live,
