moves in, and mike, you're still tracking our crash in palo alto. >> i am, which sounds like a big deal but you can't see it from this big shot of the bay area. brentwood no problem, down through toward the south bay and over toward the peninsula side, where we show you the one area with unusual slowing, is northbound 101 coming just up toward the embarcadero exit. there was a crash there, a car blocks your two left lanes and a fire crew arrived to lend assistance. it sounds dramatic but sounds like this happened because, look at that, it went to green, a car hit a tire in the roadway. very dark in that area of the peninsula. they remain there until they can clear the tire and the vehicles involved. we'll track that. back to you. first to:can cloud cover county, a shooter is on the run this morning, after shots were fired in downtown walnut creek. our cameras were there as that crime tape went up late last night in the area outside the

"today in the bay's" tracie potts joins us live on capitol hill this morning to explain what is next. this is a big day moving forward, tracie. >> it is.
we're seeing reaction from the white house, the president's legal team, from the president himself. he's been tweeting messages of victory this morning, excerpts from the mueller report, although we have not seen the report yet. we saw the attorney general's summary and while it was very clear that there was no collusion, it was less clear on obstruction of justice. what happened, mueller couldn't decide one way or the other there was evidence for and against. he said that the president was not, had not committed a crime, that they couldn't prove he committed a crime but they also couldn't clear him, so the attorney general decided not to prosecute. democrats not much faith in this attorney general, who had criticized the investigation. now, here's president trump's reaction to the investigation being over. >> this was an illegal takedown that failed, and hopefully somebody's going to be looking at the other side, so it's
complete exoneration, no collusion, no obstruction. >> it is imperative that the attorney general release the full report and the underlying evidence. >> that is because democrats are still investigating, and they want to see not only the report, but the evidence behind it, the interviews, the other evidence that was collected. they think they might be able to use it in their own investigations. back to you. >> thank you, tlaracie. 5:04 to operation varsity blues, the admissions cheating scandal. the first wave of defendants involved is set to be arraigned in court in boston today. actresses lori loughlin and flesifles i felecity huffman will not be arraigned until later. 12 colleges and coaches involved in proctoring as well as providing financial situation to

american has two dozen 737 max planes in its fleet. not every flight on the 737 max is cancels as americans make arrangements to use other aircraft. and prices at the pump they're jumping. the average price of regular unleaded rising 16 cents in the unleaded rising 16 cents in the past two weeks. in it's now $2.66 a gallon nationwide. there in the bay area, gas is averaging $3.64 a gallon. analysts say the increase comes as supplies get tight while refiners undergo maintenance in higher demand demand of the summer driving season which unofficially kicks off memorial day. gas prices are exactly the same level they were at this time last year. last time i said i guess we can't complain at $3.64, maybe you can. back over to you. >> exactly. >> thanks, frank. >> start riding my bike places. 5:16 right now. tesla adding a new update to its autopilot system that may boost safety. the feature will alert drivers to traffic lights, it uses cameras and sensors to keep the

now all four plan to live in the same home, so they can raise their families together. they're hoping to even get pregnant at the same time. that's a lot of planning and i guess they all get along. >> a reality show? >> of course it is. >> what could possibly go wrong with that? >> and then they have multiples. >> put them in a tiny home or something. >> what would be fascinating to see what their kids will look like. >> i would think they'd like similar. >> totally different. that's the twist we watch for. >> then it's like -- never mind. >> all right, so this morning, as we get ready to head out the door, it is dry in the tri-valley. that's a live look outside at dublin. later on today, though, we'll start to see some scattered showers moving in, and for most of us, we won't see too much out of this. if you're on your way out to the dublin b.a.r.t. station, grab your umbrella in case. later on today we start to see rain moving through. our temperatures are cool, starting out with upper 40s.
we'll be at 59 degrees at 11:00 and 61 degrees at noon. our highs today reaching into the mid-60s, which is still about normal, as we go into the day, even though we have rain and a cold front approaching. this is such a slow-moving cold front it's going to spend most of the time this morning in the north bay, and then gradually make its way into san francisco by the afternoon. but the rain that we're seeing right now in areas like clover dale and ukiah, and extending over toward clear lake have been in the same spot for the past several hours, and once again, this system is moving very slowly, but will gradually make its progress into the rest of the bay area. so this is storm number one moving in that will bring us some rain. the second storm right behind that will be here as we go into wednesday, and it looks a little bit stronger. so this starts out with some rain that once again mostly hits the north bay. by 1:00, we're just starting to see it make its way in to san
francisco. for the east bay, it may not be until about 5:00, and maybe even a little bit later for the tri-valley and for the south bay, mostly after sunset we'll see that rain moving in, and then our rainfall totals with this initial line of rain will be about a quarter inch of rain for areas south and east of the golden gate bridge, maybe a little bit higher for santa rosa. we do also have a winter weather advisory in effect for the sierra after a nice stretch of some quiet weather. we'll see some more snow moving in and the snow this week may total up to about two feet, and elevations above 5,000 feet. so we're going to have a lot to watch here in terms of rain for the bay area, and snow for the sierra, also going to be windy headed into wednesday, high temperatures reaching into the mid-60s. mike, do you have some good news for palo alto? >> i do. this shot looks similar to what we've been showing you but there was yet another traffic break over the last 20 minutes and now everything should be moving smoothly as you come up toward university for northbound 101,
all lanes have been cleared of that earlier crash, and the big tire that caused the problem in the first place up toward embarcadero and oregon expressway. no more slowing there. peninsula is great, south bay, tri-valley, look at that, contra costa county. just a little slowing out of theality month pass and althe altamont pass and more traffic at the bay bridge. brentwood toward concord and richmond, a smooth flow of traffic. the bay bridge toll plaza though does have an early backup that formed over here for all lanes. that means the cash takers are open as well. that's a lot of traffic here and across the span. we see how packed it is up the incline, so it looks like there's a big rush to get into the city this morning, maybe a lot of folks have to catch up on some work. this jam up on the incline though is going to cause the metering lights to be turned on at least at the regular time, and should be turned on now so this may result in a little more jamming in toward san francisco until they do get the metering lights to sort of ease up the traffic on the span. here is the rest of the north bay drive, no delays, 101 all the way down to san francisco.
5:24 for you right now. authorities are investigating a fire at a southern california mosque as a hate crime, this happened early yesterday in escondido. several people were inside when the fire started. luckily no one was hurt. firefighters later found a note in the parking lot referencing the recent mass shooting in new zealand. in new zealand dozens gathered over the week toend to remember lives lost with 50 people killed in the mosque shooting there. >> today we are you and you are us. we will stand for peace and we will stand together as one. >> most of the victims were migrant or refugees, and their deaths sent shock waves through the muslim world. new zealand's prime minister has announced a top-level inquiry into what happened and what could have been done to prevent the attack. a bay area woman along with hundreds of others are safe this morning. over the weekend, their ship put out a mayday call. video from on board shows some
of the chaos. take a look at it, it was amazing to watch, as the boat ebbed in both directions. more than two dozen passengers were injured, one critically. one rio vista woman tweeted she's finally back on dry land in norway. "the viking sky" loss engine power in rough waters. it made for dangerous conditions. people got hurt from the things flying across the room back and forth. hundreds of passengers had to actually be air lifted off that ship. >> big rogue wave crashed through, smashed through a window in the bulkhead support, and it felt like "the titanic." >> i think the roughest was part was getting in to the helicopter once we got up. >> nearly 600 americans were said to be on board. 5:26 right now. it could soon be a historical first for the red planet, picture, a helicopter touching down on mars. the chopper would be part of
nasa's mars 2020 rover, when nasa is opening to explore a remote region of the planet. we've been talking about this, director jordan peele's second horror movie "us" opened this weekend in the number one spot at the box office. >> hey, hey, hey! hey! hey! >> yeah, that was a scary part there of the film. the horror film brought in $70.3 million over the weekend. here is a little something to be excited and scary about. look closely when you see some of the scenes here, because some of the scenes were shot in santa cruz beach there on the boardwalk. many joke they won't be visiting boardwalk this summer after seeing this film. hmm. "captain marvel" fell into second place after holding the number one spot since it opened three weeks ago, bringing in $35 million. in third was "wonder park" which brought in $9 million. coming up next on "today in
the bay," the changes santa clara county could make when it comes to its policies on the i.c.e. cooperation in the wake of a recent homicide involving an undocumented immigrant. plus new delays san francisco central subway project could soon be facing and the impact it will have on commuters. a monday morning stors

mike, folks are getting an early start. >> that's right, at the bay bridge toll plaza, all the toll takers reporting for work before 5:00 so all the lanes were open and filled but folks headed into the city earlier this morning as well. the metering lights were turned on at the normal time, when we saw the traffic jamming up on the incline. it's smoothing now. i was concerned about the immediate approach to san francisco but that's okay so far. some debris or road hazard near the east shore freeway. the rest of the approach through contra costa county, same for the peninsula, south bay and the tri-valley. good stuff for most of your commute. back to you. >> thank you, mike. breaking overnight in the east bay, an hour's long crime scene investigation in contra costa county. >> gunfire broke out late last night in downtown walnut creek near a popular movie theater. we've been working this story for hours. >> pete suratos is live in walnut creek with what we know as police search for the shooter this morning.
pete? >> reporter: good morning to you, marcus and laura. the scene has wrapped up in downtown walnut creek. it happened in front of the union bank on locust street and mt. diablo boulevard in walnut creek. that was the active scene last night. according to walnut creek police, it happened roughly before 2:00 p.m. in this parking lot that we're standing in. the motive of the shooting is unknown but the victim took himself to the nearby kaiser in walnut creek with gunshot wounds to the back that appear to be non-life-threatening at this time. as far as crime goes in walnut creek i was able to pull up some statistics for the month of january. looks like there have been eight reported assaults with a deadly weapon in walnut creek, and two strong-armed robberies. not many crime stats to show in the city, making the shooting fairly rare in walnut creek. no suspects are in custody at this time. we expect more details from walnut creek police later this morning. we're live here in walnut creek, pete suratos for "today in the bay." >> we'll check back with you. thanks so much, pete.

robert mueller found evidence on both sides of whether the president obstructed justice. attorney general william barr decided not to pursue. >> we'd like to have him come before the committee as quickly as possible. >> reporter: democrats argue barr is not a neutral observer and his decision not to prosecute could be a partisan interpretation of facts. >> it is imperative that the attorney general release the full report and underlying evidence. >> reporter: republicans have their own reasons for wanting that report released. >> let's see the fisa applications, because this is an extraordinary use of government surveillance power. >> reporter: a nearly two-year investigation ended, analyzing that investigation, just beginning. tracie potts, nbc news, washington. >> and coming up at 7:00 on the "today" show, white house press secretary sarah huckabee sanders will be live to discuss the mueller report with savannah and hoda. see that interview after "today
in the bay." >> 5:35 right now. santa clara county may be ready to start contacting federal authorities when violent undocumented felons are released. supervisors tomorrow will debate a measure to end the current ban preventing deputies from contacting i.c.e. it involves inmates being released, despite detainer requests. undocumented inmates would be instead held until federal authorities assume control. that move is being sparked in large part by the deadly stabbing last month of a woman in her south san jose home. investigators say 24-year-old carlos eduardo arguelo carranza killed 59-year-old bambi larson. authorities say he was a repeat offender, released twice from jail without i.c.e. ever being notified. critics are blaming sanctuary city policies. having bump stocks in your possession will be considered a felony this week under federal law. the new rules go into effect starting tomorrow. people must turn them over to law enforcement or destroy them.

of construction on i-880 this week, so crews will be working on southbound lanes, this is between wynton avenue and highway 92. work is expected to last from midnight until 4:00 a.m. each night until thursday morning. crews are installing new signs for 880, express lane project. work picks back up again next week. something to be mindful of, mike. >> that's true and not a surprise, folks traveling through the area have seen the closures over the last week and a half, and have been at various times a full closure or partial. watch for bright lights through that area. right now, we're seeing a little slowing because the commute is just starting to build through hayward and headed south. the south bay itself shows a standard drive. we are looking at one crash i pointed out, westbound 580, getting away from that east shore freeway headed past regatta. it's over on the shoulder, there say good amount of traffic headed toward that richmond to san rafael bridge and look at the bay bridge span itself.
you can't make it out too closely but i put my face close to the screen and i could see the incline is moving well. >> is that how you check? >> i do. sometimes i go through the screen. >> we'll have to send kari out to really feel that rain. >> hey, we're doing that already in the north bay. the rain is coming down as you get ready to head out the door, mostly santa rosa on northward, and then this system will bring us some soggy weather to the rest of the bay area later on today, and this is the first in a series of two storm systems that will make it for a soggy week. by the time we get to the weekend, you'll really appreciate this, looking at highs inland in the low 70s, and mostly sunny skies. san francisco will also have some beautiful weather, looking at some mid to upper 60s. so as we make plans, if you're going to the tri-valley, it's going to be 64 degrees on friday, and near 70 degrees for
saturday. sierra will have good travel conditions getting there after a week of possibly getting another couple of feet of snow. i'll be tracking that and we'll talk about what's going on, as we get another look at storm ranger coming up in about three minutes. >> thanks, kari. >> 5:41. coming up next on "today in the bay," feeling the burn. >> not just wealthy campaign contributors. >> the message senate bernie sanders has for those in the bay area as he campaigns here. his run for the white house. plus awaiting apple's big announcement. a live report from cupertino on the new products and services the tech giant could roll out today. for comfort food at a comfortable price, try my sourdough patty melt combo with fries and a drink for just $4.99. it's the perfect remedy for the uncomfortable things in life...
