6:19 am
6:00 in the morning. there will be some breaks in between then more rain for the afternoon. it will be hard to make plans to get outside. at any point we have scattered showers falling. it does clear out for the weekend. rainfall totals at this point, looks like we could have 1/4 inch of rain and maybe 1/2 inch of rain for parts of the north bay. while this weak storm system moves onshore, it will cause the possibility of rip currents today and sneaker waves along with large breaks. dangerous conditions at beaches. if you are going to lake tahoe 0, tire chains may be required. a winter storm watch in effect tomorrow and lake wind advisory. four to eight inches of snow. and wind gusts over 35 miles per hour. look at the snowfall for the sierra. maybe a few inches once again. 4-8 inches. there is more early next week up to 11 inches of snow between now

6:21 am
no more updates. those big rigs may be getting moved to the shoulder. if it moves to the shoulder, the distraction should ease up a bit. we have a crash in the back there. that makes things lighter for the bay bridge. the bay bridge looks great right now. hidden behind that highway shield, southbound 680. sounds like there may be a crash in the commute direction. we do see slowing there. looking over toward fremont where we expect more traffic for southbound 880. there you go. no big surprises here or through the south bay. a smooth drive. just starting to ease up with the volume. keeping it all in the family. the royal family. the new photos of the queen alongside her many grandchildren.

6:31 am
>> sleeper crews are sweeping all four lanes. they had two lanes open. >> this accident happened around 3:20 this morning. traffic was trying to merge into the far right lane as the only lane opened at the time when the big rig ran over the mazda and crushed the driver to death. not clear how fast the big rig was going at the time. there were three other cars heading on eastbound 80, completely unrelated. they crashed into each other on the shoulder road at roughly the same spot. those people were treated and released. >> in situations like this, we
6:32 am
ask all drivers to pay attention to the road. slow down. make sure you're focused on what's in front of you compared to what's on the side of you. >> around 1:30 this morning two, emts and an ambulance slammed into the back of construction vehicle doing work at the base of the carquinez. this was on 0 eastbound 80. that resulted in that backup. it took firefighters at least 40 minutes to extricate both people from that ambulance. both taken to the hospital with major injuries. the ambulance was not transporting any patients at the time. they were on their way to uc davis to pick up a neonatal patient. you are looking at the traffic on eastbound 80 waiting for all lanes to be reopened. caltrans does a sweep of the road. there is clearly a backup in that direction and backup in the commute direction which is westbound 80.
6:33 am
unfortunately i can't tell how far that backup goes. >> this is toward the carquinez bridge. there was an earlier crash and that caused more backup. that is a good slowdown stretch there. that's starting to smooth out now that there's not as many flashing lights. the sweeper trucks have a full stop. our producer will let me know if they open it while i'm on the record here. about a half mile on the approach. all lanes stopped eastbound 80 until they move those sweepers. should be a couple of minutes to clear that debris. more slowing here. not a surprise for hayward but here looking at southbound 680. i talked about a crash around this area. that is affecting the on ramp, but not the freeway itself.
6:34 am
lighter than a typical commute in that area. i'm looking at low clouds covering here. >> it is quickly changing. that will be the case as we go throughout the day. not much sunshine through the bay area. mild temperatures at 60 for the tri-valley peninsula. we'll have mostly cloudy skies. san francisco 67 and spotty rain possible later on today for the north bay. rain moves into the rest of the bay area tomorrow. details on that coming up in the next microclimate forecast. >> thank you. new this morning, a four-on-twosome discovery after an early morning fire in the east bay. investigators tell us one person is dead after a fire broke out at a two-story warehouse after
6:35 am
3:00. this happened on 66th avenue in oakland near oracle arena. the identity of that victim has not been released. >> in san jose a father is dead at the hands of his own son, stabbing. this marks the third homicide in just a matter of days. >> kris sanchez live at the san jose police department. this has been a violent week for that city. >> it has. perhaps the community might take comfort knowing the suspect was arrested at the scene and this stabbing was not a random attack. the suspect who was arrested is the adult son of the victim. what triggered that deadly attack is unclear. it happened after 9:00 last night in a mobile home park. the son whose name is not being released yet is in custody. no danger to the public here.
6:36 am
that may not necessarily be the case in the two other homicides reported this week. the gunman who shot the 21-year-old who was meeting someone about a publicy for s e sale, that person is still at-large. 14 people have been killed on the streets of san jose this year. that outpaces the rate this time last year. there were eight people who had been killed in the city. you can always report it anonymously. >> it is 6:36.
6:37 am
trial begins monday for the man accused of killing sierra lamar, four years after the teenager's disappearance. police arrested garcia torres after lamar went missing. prosecutors say physical evidence proves torres kidnapped and killed lamar. lamar's body still hasn't been found. >> those who spent years searching for her are looking for closure. >> we are eager for justice for sierra lamar. we are eager for closure for the family. legal analysts say the defense may try to move that case. a man accused of running over and killing a pittsburgh mother is expected to be arraigned today. the suspect was apparently trying to outrun police officers. he drove his car through a golf
6:38 am
course then took off on foot. officers were able to track him down. the victim was a 65-year-old mother out for her morning walk. she with her husband were full-time care takers of a disabled son. a neighbor says the family is struggling to cope. >> the son came this morning and knocked on my door in tears. i said i can't imagine what you are going through right now. >> police say he was driving with a suspended license and is on probation for a prior dui arrest. what happens today in the south bay may change the direction of california's high-speed rail project. board members will hold a meeting to adopt a new business plan considering changing the rail system's buildout. the line might be stretched north to san jose.
6:39 am
6:38. time to plan your thursday morning, what to wear. >> no need for sunglasses in most of the bay area this storm system will bring in more clouds. and milder temperatures. it will bring in scattered showers. look at the time line when we can expect the rain. not much today once again. by 2:00 in the morning, we start to see it moving into the north bay. we see yellows and oranges and that indicates heavier rain. expect a chance of showers passing by. i'll detail that. that will be coming up in my next microclimate forecast. let's check on an update on the morning commute. a live look out there we'll
