to preserve and protect them. with love, california. welcome to thursday morning. this is the latest, tracking rain. we'll have a look at the forecast and when the clearing will be coming. we'll look forward to that, won't we? good morning to you. thank you for joining us. i'm laura garcia. >> i'm marcus washington. let's talk about the weather, the last part of the storm. >> this the last little bit. once it moves through, we've got about 24 hours of this rain that will be very spotty before we dry out in time forth weekend. as we take a look at storm ranger, mobile radar, we can see heavier rain moving through parts of the solano county and
also through southern naapa county as well. where it is bright red that indicates heavy rain. it is really pouring in those areas. also raining on the bay bridge, richmond san rafael bridge. we're also seeing rain moving across parts of the peninsula. i'm tracking all this. >> so far the speed sensors look already. i am concerned over here, that's the dublin area eastbound getting away from the dublin interchange. look how very light the traffic flow is. despite that, somewhere behind that sign, there's a crash. the car went off the roadway. i'm watching for slowing but i don't see any eastbound away from the bridge. westbound is your commute, a smooth flow of traffic, minor slowing out of the altamont, which is typical. that rain doesn't show slowing. speed sensors are traveling through the area. be aware bay bridge and san rafael conditions, use your
wipers. 4:31. this morning a 4-year-old boy who got ahold of a gun and shot himself in the head is in critical condition. now his aunt is speaking out saying the preschooler needs a miracle. >> "today in the bay" bob redell live for us. bob, what are police saying actually happened here. >> reporter: marcus and laura garcia, she's asking for people to pray for her nephew. so fines no signs of recovery. >> he's 4 years old. he's a baby. babies. these babies are dying. they are babies. these are babies. >> 4-year-old jackson was rushed to oakland children's yesterday afternoon when he was found with a gunshot wound to his head inside this home on richie street in east oakland.

assault. ron says it's the third time this man harassed or tried to steal the sign in a week. ron was bruised but outside san francisco. he thinks the suspect doesn't like their message. ron hopes he gets help. >> the sad thing is he needs therapy and there is therapy available. that would be a good thing for him to be treated for it. >> ian cole, "today in the bay." all right. happening today, a high school in solano county plans to reopen. it shut its doors after a school district says that someone made a violent threat. the district says it closed fairfield's vanden high school out of an abundance of caution. one said they spray painted his name with symbols a few weeks ago. naacp is joining the family and demanding the u.s. marshall's office step in and investigate the school. the student responsible, well,
they have been suspended. now to a story about that legal battle over building a homeless encampment at embarcadero in san francisco. now it appears a lot of people against it. the group called safe embarcadero for all set to raise $100,000 online to hire an attorney. the mayor's office announced last month it wants to build a 200 bed navigation center on a parking lot in a dense neighborhood. a supporter says the proposed shelter is too large, and she's concerned about safety. >> there will be no drug use inside, but they allow drug users inside. where do you think they are shooting drugs. >> some neighbors who oppose the center say they aren't donating to the cause because they do not believe it can be stopped. the commission will consider the lease agreement next month. final prover of the mayor's shelter. the demonstration on tuesday.
neighbors coming out in full force to save trees in menlo park. the group called raging grannies met to demand the city keeps seven heritage redwood trees. those are located on el camino real near the library. the trees sit on top of a building, a parking structure, with water damage there. so the city says those trees need to go. >> they are beautiful, majestic trees. they are native to the region, coastal redwoods last year alone menlo park lost 700 trees. >> despite the support, the commission voted to uproot the trees. they say removing the trees is the only way to repair the building. >> 4:37, coming up next on "today in the bay," johnson & johnson facing lawsuits, thousands of them as some people say one of the products causes health issues. the ruling from one judge on the

will be over palo alto soon. the rain is spotty and that's what we can expect for the rest of the day. as i widen the view, a few thunderstorms well off the coach. i'm keeping a chance of thunderstorms in the forecast today. we'll have to watch out for that. as we go hour by hour, it does show our best chance of rain will be over the north bay. picking up in parts of the peninsula, east bay and possibly parts of the south bay going into later today. won't be until early tomorrow until this clears out. south bay not expecting much here. the bulk of the rain will be areas just to the north where we could see a quarter inch of rain and north bay about a half inch of rain or more. so as we check out that forecast, we are going to see a chance of storms today. by tomorrow we're all clearing out and our temperatures warm up for the weekend with inland areas below 70. looks really nice. heading over to mike, you've been tracking the move in palo
