coming up on "today in the bay," kari hall tracking more rain for this weekend. >> yes, we're enjoying our nice little break today, as we are going to get some sunshine, but those clouds will quickly roll in. here is a live look in palo alto this morning, with our temperatures in the mid-40s to start. it will be a cool day. we'll talk about what's ahead with that next round of rain coming up. >> pretty well out there, we have a report though of a crash in oakland, so if you're traveling along northbound 880, i'll have details on a crash that may be blocking some lanes. looks like a tow truck is en route. i'll have all the details coming up.
. it is just about 4:45 right now. we're looking live at the transamerica building. we can see it because the storm rolled out but there's another one, and another one, and another one on the horizon. we'll talk with kari in a little bit. as urban life encroaches on nature, it is nice to know everyone still follows the rules of the road, like these guys. these deer in colorado springs taking after the locals using the crosswalk and crossing on the green light. you hear that, that's a little kid giggling about that crossing. but good lesson, child, see how they cross on the green? >> that's pretty unique to see. >> it's cute. >> not running in the middle of everything. >> i've seen people walking on horseback alum rock roarea, use
that in the crosswalk and hills as well. that's cute. >> cute. you want to go out on your horse today. >> take advantage because we are enjoying dry weather and temperatures are cool to start. it will be a milder afternoon, but we will also start to see some more clouds moving in. as you step out the door in napa and santa rosa, it is 42 degrees, and 46 in san jose. and martinez will also be in the low 40s this morning, but then we start to see those temperatures getting milder, going into late morning, early afternoon. we'll be at 57 degrees at noon, eventually our highs reaching into the low 60s in concord and antioch, and 56 in san francisco today. 56 in half moon bay and in palo alto today 59. here is a live look outside in san jose, and this may be your view out the window as you're getting dressed. we are going to need still a jacket to start out the day, and then maybe some jeans or pants, maybe it's casual friday at the office. we will see a lot of clouds today, and then here we are, early tomorrow morning, and the
rain will be back, and this one starts out in the south bay, then kind of rolls to the north. we'll see the off and on rain through at least saturday morning, at about 9:00 to 10:00, before it starts to taper off. it does become more scattered throughout the day, but there will still be rain chances in the forecast at any point, anywhere across the bay area on saturday, and then still some lingering showers on sunday. we will see the clouds sticking around for sunday into monday, and then the next storm system moving in that will be here on tuesday into wednesday, and then of course, we were talking about it, there is another storm right behind that. it looks like at least for the next system moving in, rain will be a lot lighter, and more focused on the santa cruz mountains, and the south county, but we could still see about a half to three-quarter inches of rain for the north bay. when the next system comes in, we're going to add more rain on top of that. another inch to two inches with the atmospheric river. and if you are planning to go to the sierra, today is looking good, but tomorrow, the snow
will be back, so today is your travel day, and then get there before that snow starts to come down and make plans to not come back until monday, because that's when we get our next break. and that's what we see also in terms of rain for the bay area, with some off and on showers for tomorrow into early sunday. monday is looking nice, and then on tuesday we'll be preparing for that next round of some heavy rain. so we'll have more updates on that and vianey, it's still good out there on the roads. >> it is, especially because it's dry, so folks, if you didn't learn anything from the last one in terms of getting the windshield wipers up to date and new tires, do that because we have more rain on the way. i was going to check on the crash along 808 in oakland and that's what i did, but first, here is a look at the overall bay area, the south bay is doing well. we have the peninsula, no crashes to report in through there or east bay for the most part, fremont is doing okay. we did see a crash just pop up and chp is reporting a crash
along northbound 880 near the embarcadero exit. a vehicle may be in some lanes and also reporting a tow truck is on the way and is required along with a bit of a traffic hazard, which means there could be some debris out on the roads. as far as the speed sensors go, we're not seeing slowing on our speed sensors so hopefully since they're on the way, they can get this cleared out in time and doesn't look to be an injury accident which is great news to hear this early in the morning. let's look at the live cam in oakland. we can see some slowing on both sides of the northbound and southbound 880, so expect a high volume of commute in through this area, but hopefully they get that accident cleared out within the next couple of minutes. i'll send it back to you. >> thanks, vianey. 4:49 right now. in danville, dozens coming together to remember john moore, the 6-year-old was killed sunday. moore was a well-known businessman and former president of the danville rotary. candlelight vigil was held in his honor last night and his family says they still can't believe he's gone. >> i lost half of me by losing
john. we had a wonderful 25-plus years, and we were planning on having a lot more fun. >> detectives say mark sipien murdered moore and drove to his parents home in imnoise where he shot himself. sipien dating moore's daughter years ago. moore's family filed restraining orders accusing sipien of stalking and domestic violence. a doctor accused of selling prescriptions will appear in court. dr. pham made millions by selling prescriptions to his patients who were drug addicts. according to investigators he is linked to five overdose deaths. the borderline bar mass shooter who killed 12 people last november had prescription drugs linked to this doctor. oakland charter school leaders plan to make an unusual request, in the midst of the ongoing teacher strikes, they
want to stop the creation of any new oakland charter schools, this comes as the striking teachers pin some of the district's budget struggles on declining enrollment from a recent boom in charter schools, and it comes with the passing of new state legislation this week calling for more charter school transparency. governor gavin newsom is trying to increase california's trade with other countries, appointing lieutenant governor eleni koulakis with a new task of reopening trade offices. newsom wants to reopen a trade office in mexico first. california is the world's fifth largest economy, when compared to other nations. newsom's office says the state's gross domestic product is $27 7 trillion $2.7 trillion annually. this started with a simple request, texas veteran john cuba is turning 100 years old. he really wanted to just get 100

newark. the dumbarton carries about 80-thousand cars a day. but how about a train? there )s talk of re-building the there )s talk of re-building the dumbarton rail bridge, thanks to facebook. the last time the rail bridge was used, was nearly 40 years ago, by freight trains. details are still in the works. but the public got to hear about the project last night in fremont. the project aims to break ground in 20-22 -- a timeline that had that project aims to break ground in just a couple of years, aiming to ease some congestion between the peninsula and a time line, though, has people feeling skeptical.
>> you know, i have a lot more respect for facebook getting things done than i do with the local government. it could be -- it facebook is really behind it and pushing it, yeah t will get done. otherwise we could go another 10 or 15 years. >> as of now the estimated cost for the bridge is about $2 billion. there will be another public meeting tomorrow in menlo park. the warriors right now probably glad to be done with the brutal road trip. last night in orlando, they wrapped up their fifth road game in eight days. they played the last four since saturday all east of houston. aside key shots from steph curry, fatigue set in, in the fourth quarter. aaron gordon lifted the magic 103-96, the win for magic there. baseball fans, get ready, because on nbc bay area tonight, the giants and the reds are live for you from scottsdale, madison bumgarner is scheduled to pitch. coverage begins on nbc bay area starting at 6:00. >> march 1st is baseball season.
