aware of because we are getting moments of very heavy rain that would lead to slides. so that's possible especially in places like big sur and santa cruz mountains and right now, though, across the bay area, with rain coming to concord, clayton, so along 680 if this is your route it will be wet. so definitely coming down strongly in those areas of darker greens, yellows and oranges like we see now in kensington and berkeley. so rain is going to be picking up there. also in richmond, coming down strong. we got an inch of rain from a lot of locations. we are adding a lot to the totals in petaluma past rohnert park and east of santa rosa towards st. helena. yountville had a break but
it's going to pick up. bodega bay, that's coming down heavy on highway 1 through windsor, as well. so keep that in mind heading out this morning. scattered showers widespread in your forecast this morning. some areas may be dry momentarily and then will pick back up. this afternoon, it's an issue. we could see a chance of thunderstorms and hail. so today our temperatures are a little warmer than yesterday. and once we get that warming of the day, after 12, 1:00, that's when instability tends to happen so you may remember that from last week. we had thunder, lightning, small hail between 1:00 and 4:00 that will occur and then 9:00 tonight it's on. this storm is really going to bring us rain overnight tonight and by the morning commute tomorrow. we have an accident blocking two lanes westbound 24 right as you approach
gateway and you can see that backup immediately just showed up and we have speeds that are dipping below 15 miles per hour. chp already on the scene. they are working on clearing the activity to the shoulder but in the meantime traffic is backed up beyond camino pablo and we are seeing those delays continue. so do give yourself extra time. 880 is a mess although earlier crashes are cleared out of the road. bad ride southbound especially. over at the bay bridge toll plaza, sensors show green but it's going to be slow across the upper deck. allow for plenty of extra time. back to you. now to the developments this morning in the austin, texas serial bombings. jackie ward reports from the newsroom. reporter: our cbs affiliate in austin keye-tv is reporting that a suspect they believe to be a serial bomber is now dead.
just hours ago, police converged on an area outside the red roof inn along 35 in round rock, texas, a suburb of austin. according to austin police chief brian manley in the last 24 to 36 hours, a person of interest under investigation became a suspect. he is a 24-year-old man whose name hasn't been released yet. >> we ultimately located the vehicle that this suspect was moan to be driving as members of the austin police department s.w.a.t. team approached the vehicle, the suspect detonated a bomb inside the vehicle knocking one of our s.w.a.t. officers back and one of our s.w.a.t. officers fired at the suspect as well. >> reporter: sources got surveillance photos that show the suspect inside a fedex facility. they show him mailing two packages over the weekend and in the photos, you can see that he is wearing gloves, a
hat and possibly a wig. investigators since confirmed that those packages are connected to the string of explosions in recent weeks. since the bombings began, two people have been killed, five have been injured, and a total of five bombs detonated. in the newsroom, jackie ward, kpix 5. >> what are authorities saying about the possibility of more bombings in the area? >> reporter: they don't know what the suspect sent 24 hours leading up to his death. they want to make sure he didn't leave behind any more bombs in the austin area. president trump is being condemned by some for congratulating russian president vladimir putin on his re-election. the president referred to his conversation with putin as a very good call. according to the "washington post," the president congratulated putin despite specific warnings not to from his national security advisers. many foreign policy analysts
say the russian election was rigged. >> the president once again has maintained that it's important for to us have a dialogue with russia so that we can focus on some areas of shared interest. >> putin got 76% of the vote against several minor candidates. his most prominent opponent was not allowed on the ballot. critics of the congratulatory call include some republicans. john mccain of arizona posted on twitter: east bay congressman barbara lee is calling out betsy devos saying that devos has her head in the sand on race issues in schools. the comment came as lee questioned the department's delay on implementing obama- era regulations including one rule intended to prevent schools from pushing students of color into special education supposedly for no reason. >> another example i think more and more every day their head is in the sand about
racial bias and racial discrimination, i wrote you a letter june 2017, um, concerned about school segregation and what this means in terms of addressing the adverse affects of segregation on minority students to ensure that every student has an opportunity for an equal education. you never answered that letter, nor that question. i'd like for you to, please, respond to that. >> i'm sorry if we have not yet respond to it. we are still waiting for senate confirmed nominees become part of the department and would urge that this body would encourage your fellow -- >> mad am secretary you just don't care about civil rights and black or brown children. this is horrible. >> devos says the department wants to have a regulation that appropriately addresses these issues. the debate over climate change goes to court as local cities take on the oil

reporter: early this morning, in a suburb of austin, texas, the man believed to be the suspect in the string of bombings that have terrorized the city of austin for weeks killed himself after detonating an explosive device. that's according to our cbs affiliate in austin. as members of the austin police s.w.a.t. team close in on the motel on route 35 and approached the suspect car, the suspect set off a bomb inside the vehicle. the explosion knocked one of the s.w.a.t. officers back, causing another officer to fire back at the suspected bomber. austin police chief brian manley said it's been an incredibly trying time for austin. >> it's been a long almost three weeks for the community of austin as we have dealt with package bombs and other types of bombs that have been placed throughout our community. we have seen members of our community who have lost their lives and others whose lives have been forever changed due to significant injuries. >> reporter: the five
connected explosions that began on march 2nd killed two people and injured six others. 350 federal law enforcement agents went to austin to help local police. austin police reported a sixth explosion happened last night in south austin but determined it was from a military memorabilia left in a goodwill "dropbox." in the newsroom, jackie ward, kpix 5. so are police saying anything about this ordeal coming to a conclusion or even being over now? >> reporter: so whether the bombings are truly over is trying to be determined. an atf agent says investigators think the dead suspect built all the bombs himself but have not ruled out if he had any help. plus, there's a 24-hour time period where investigators aren't completely sure of his whereabouts meaning he could have planted other explosives that haven't detonated yet. in maryland, two students are injured and a gunman dead after a shooting at a high school. we brought you this story yesterday morning.

federal court for a hearing, a tutorial on climate change. both sides will present the best available science on global warming, melting ice, sea level rise and coastal flooding. the judges asked for that tutorial and the cities are arguing that oil production has heed the planet and caused rising sea levels which -- heated the planet and caused rising sea levels which will wipe some cities out by the turn of the century. each lawsuit names the five biggest oil companies, producers of fossil fuels in the world, talking about chevron, exxon, bp, shell, conocophillips. >> the science is undeniable. climate change is altering our planet, placing many of our communities at risk. >> reporter: the lawsuit asks the courts to hold "big oil" companies responsible for paying for infrastructure like seawalls to help protect oakland and san francisco in the event of rising sea levels. now, the companies as well as the city attorneys head to
