5:15 am
expressway so you can see those slowdowns starting to develop just under the limit there, chp now on the scene. a head-on crash on oregon expressway right at west bayshore road. emergency crews on the scene. at least one lane is blocked at this time. hat's a check of your traffic; over to you. hi-def doppler showing we have some green popping up and that would be rain. it looks like the radar went to make another loop. hopefully you will get a good view of what's out there across the south bay a few areas of rain and it's making a few loops around and then you will see where we are getting that rain. light drizzle in the area. so as we get up further north, morgan hill, light drizzle, as well. the hills east of morgan hill starting turn to slush so it is
5:16 am
cold enough on those hills. then around mount hamilton that's where we are seeing it. higher elevations and down to 1500 feet rain turning to snow very light. 47 in oakland. 42 livermore. san francisco 47. it feels colder in san jose because of winds. windchill factor at mount diablo down to 18 degrees. mount tam 21 degrees. milpitas feels like 31. livermore feels like 30. so definitely does feel freezing . west wind at sfo up to 20. so they have picked up over the past hour. san francisco downtown 15-mile- per-hour winds oakland also seeing west winds at 15. across the south bay, 10 to 15-
5:17 am
mile-per-hour sustained winds. but we are seeing stronger gusts especially along the north bay hills, the east bay hills and areas that get it. but the west winds will keep us cool throughout the day and it's all associated with a storm with scattered showers, also bringing in the winds with the storm that came through. it came down from canada so we are getting north-northwest winds. it's going to last through early tomorrow morning as far as the strong wind gusts are concerned. how much longer will we see chances of rainfall throughout the day? by about 2 p.m., this is when we could see some pop-up thunderstorms. and those thunderstorms could actually have some hail in them. so thunder, lightning, all of that not ruled out for today. once the heat of the day arrives, we could get a lot of instability in the sky and that's why. so temperatures this afternoon, low 50s for san francisco. 54 in oakland. 54 in fremont. and look at the sierra, they are also getting some snow. it's closer to 80. they have a winter weather advisory in effect as low as 2,000 feet elevation.
5:18 am
so the foothills are under the advisory. let me step out of the shot so you can see that extensive amount of space that's under that advisory. 3 to 6 inches expected there. low visibility if you are going up to tahoe and snowy roads. here's your tahoe report. sugar bowl expecting to get up to 3 inches of new snow on top of the snow they got earlier this week. north star could see 6 inches. alpine meadows could see six inches. so snow is likely to last through early tomorrow morning and then things will calm down for them as well and for all of us. we are not going to get another storm until monday. and actually we'll see a few storms entering the area up from canada. next chance of rain on monday. the warriors are heading to washington, dc next week for the first time this season but the champs won't be heading to the white house. you may remember the warriors snubbed the visit after winning the title last year. and then the president disinvited them. a few months ago, team leader

5:34 am
bay every day and that number is growing. so bart is now stepping up and spending $200 million for a serious look at a second bay crossing. there are some tough questions to be answered including the route from the east bay and where the tube would land in san francisco. a new transbay tube would mean digging up or digging under alameda island. bart promises to have some proposal on the table by the end of the year. now for a look at this morning's commute, we might be hoping for that second tube. here's jaclyn. that's right. right now, we are tracking that bart is running right on time no delays, 46 trains in service. in fact, all your mass transit ride looking good off to a great start for this thursday morning commute. but on the roads, that's a different story. northbound 101 at lawrence expressway one lane blocked because of an accident. traffic backed up to about montague expressway. so just a heads up if you are traveling through that stretch or know someone who is. call them and let them know

5:36 am
morning. so it's been an hour we have seen snow coming down on mount hamilton. east of san jose, east of milpitas, east of fremont so definitely once the sun comes out, if you see any white dusting, then you will know that's the snow that's down and take a picture and send it to us. also east of gilroy right now looks like a light drizzle coming down but you can see where that rain turns to snow santa cruz this just popped up on highway 1 and could be heading towards boulder creek scotts valley but it's light saw some areas with light flurries pop up but that disappeared quickly so it's scattered showers throughout the day. here's a look at our skyline across san francisco. this is anne's favorite shot. wanted to show it to her again. we are going to continue to see showers and light snow flurries throughout the day and then tahoe will get up to 6 inches of snowfall even up to 10" in some of the ski resorts and then thunderstorms and hail likely for this afternoon.
5:37 am
once we get heat we'll have chances of thunderstorm and hail because of the instability. overall cloudy conditions this morning. santa rosa, north bay area a lit bit of spotty clearing but yes most of the precipitation is across the south bay and the winds are strong so it does feel a lot colder than it is. temperatures are in the 40s but we feel like we are in the 30s. and i'll have your full forecast coming up. the united nations will meet today to potentially call for a temporary cease-fire in syria as the slaughter of civilians continues. more than 300 people have been killed in a rural portion of that area this week. human rights monitors say russian and syrian planes have launched strikes that hit multiple hospitals and other civilian targets. the rebel held area near the capital of damascus has been under siege for more than 5 years as president bashar assad and his russian allies try to wipe out anti-government fighters. there could be more trouble for google this morning.
5:38 am
a former engineer says he was fired for something that he described as a, quote, cruel irony. kpix 5's jackie ward reports. reporter: tim chevalier was an engineer at google and he says he is fired for defending women and minorities. this lawsuit stems to a memo written in august in which now former employee james damore said women were biologically less inclined to be successful engineers. well, this morning, tech website gizmodo reports that chevalier took a stand against that memo and called out damore's words. chevalier says it's his liberal views that got him fired in november. google responded to gizmodo's report with a statement saying in part: code of conduct and other work licies, under which promoting harmful stereotypes d on race or gender is prohib chevalier also claims he was targeted for ide as transgender .. and that even after reporting it
5:39 am
to google's h-r department, nothing was done. he is seeking >> reporter: chevalier also claims he was identified for identifying as transgender and even after reporting it to the human resources department nothing was done. he is seeking unspend damages. in the newsroom, jackie ward, kpix 5. with the new tax code in effect, you may have seen a change in your paycheck. but a question, will the withholding amount be sufficient to cover next year's tax liability? cbs news business analyst jill schlesinger joins us now to explain why some of us will need to do more. good morning, jill. so first, i want to start, remind us what the purpose of withholding is. >> reporter: well, most full time employers withhold income tax from your pay. taxes may also be withheld from other income like a pension, bonus, commission, even gambling winnings. in each case, the amount is paid directly to the irs and it's in your name. if the amount is not enough, or if you're self-employed or receive other income like dividends, interest, capital gains, rent, you might have to
5:40 am
pay quarterly tax estimates to meet the total bill. >> so how do we make sure that the new withholding is enough? >> reporter: well, this is kind of tricky. if you have a simple tax situation, for example, if you are someone who might qualify for that new higher standard deduction, the new withholding tables should be fine. but for those with more complicated scenarios, especially for folks in california who could lose or have limited deductions, the withholding amount may not be enough to cover your tax due. so to be safe, you might want to at least assume that your tax liability will be the same this year as it was last year. so you get a penalty if you don't pay 100% of your income tax liability or 1010% if you earn more than $150,000 and to help you determine your specific withholding, the irs will be updating its calculator on it's not there as of this
5:41 am
morning. i went and looked. they said it should be available by the end of february. that's rapidly approaching. irs is also working on revising w-4s. you would use those in response to the new law or to update changes in your personal, financial circumstances. so got to pay attention to this, guys. i know in new york and california, we're going to project get hammered and many more cases than the rest of the country. >> makes a big difference. thank you, jill schlesinger. 5:41. a student at san jose state lost his home during the devastating floods that hit the city one year ago. coming up, how that loss turned into a friendship. >> plus, the effort to reduce homelessness all over california gets a huge boost. >> and taking a live look outside at 880 in oakland, traffic moving pretty smoothly at this hour. we have your traffic and weather coming up.
5:42 am
5:43 am
in just a few minutes. this morning an oakland man is
5:44 am
reported missing in yosemite national park. it's looking good across san francisco. nice view there. temperatures are in the 50s so warmer than yesterday but it feels colder with that west wind that's blowing. i'll have your full forecast coming up. this morning an oakland man is reported missing in yosemite national park. 36-year-old alan chow was last seen on his way to the hetch hetchy trail on saturday. he did not return home sunday. search-and-rescue crews started looking for him on tuesday. another concern was the weather. it was 21 degrees in yosemite last night. a bill in the state assembly would direct $1.5 billion in budget surplus money toward curbing california's homeless problem. yesterday oakland mayor libby schaaf and mayors from other cities across the state announced support of the bipartisan bill. it was authored by democrat phil ting of san francisco and a republican of san diego. the money would fund local homeless shelters and other
5:45 am
programs. under the bill, local governments would have to match any state funding. yesterday marked one year since a devastating flood in san jose destroyed homes without warning and a lot of people are still struggling to rebuild today including a young san jose college student. xavier is staying at a church. he talked to a woman weeks before losing his home. a month before coyote creek flooded, kathleen crow put up flyers to help homeless students. xavier called wanting to help them, as well. lit did he know he would be calling -- little did he know he would be calling her back needing her help. >> i said you come on down and let's see what we can do. >> since the flooding, crow has helped more than a dozen homeless students find a place to stay. awww that's cal, a new found friendship. >> jaclyn, i hope you don't
5:46 am
feel too left out. >> we didn't plan this. >> nope. >> in fact, this is sort of a tragedy of not planning. >> i thought of this, this morning. what if michelle wears red today. >> nah, won't happen. >> we did! >> looks good. >> yeah. >> so -- >> very good. >> you're good right? >> you stand out. traffic is standing out this morning. it is very slow out there. we are tracking problems a head- on crash that's shut down the eastbound direction of oregon expressway. this is right near west bayshore road. the oregon expressway off-ramp from northbound 101 is shut down. so keep that in mind in that area in palo alto. there will be delays along that stretch. i do believe we have a live shot of that -- okay. we'll get that in the next
5:47 am
