will start to calm down. the next system will zip down out of the northwest. afternoon, evening. as i feared or predicted about an hour ago, they would cut back the forecast models on tomorrow's rainfall projections. i think they will cut back on that further. but tomorrow's system has more promise than i think the one we're getting this morning. not much on the system. by noon, we'll be on the back side. i think this is overdone at 4:00. tomorrow morning we'll cloud it up and get the system tomorrow afternoon, evening. morning rain, clouds. a little cooler. the breeze has picked up for some. for others mid-60s. it will cool off tomorrow. we'll start off all right. cool and breezy, friday. >> this is almost good because you don't want too much rain at once. it sounds like -- we could use more but at least it's -- >> we could use like inch instead of .10. that's the pro be plem -- problem. these are not producing enough.

out of pleasanton, it improves by the time you reach fremont. let's go to steve. thank you. we do have a system moving through. there's not much to it. but it is there. it's giving us -- there is a secondary system coming in. that's giving rain up to the north bay. a lot of the cloud cover. not much rain. there's been a little bit of rain. i will get totals here. it looks like rain to the noon hour. there's our system. the secondary part that i'm talking about is right there. it's moving through from ukiah, up to willits getting worst reports of rain there -- getting reports of rain there. middletown, just over .25. calistoga, .17. mill valley, 12/100ths. larkspur about the same. napa, novato, .08. santa rosa, .11. after that it tailed off. san francisco .06. bane wanna vista park .09. clouds and sun later on. this is mainly a morning event.
there's our line. we'll take a closer look at it up from ukiah. lakeport, willits, fort bragg. this is light stuff. in the russian river, guerneville, cazadero, bodega bay, to santa rosa, pushing over to st. helena, looks like calistoga. not a lot but heading towards novato, san rafael and tiburon. this is light stuff along the san mateo coast. our system doesn't have a lot to work with here. it's falling apart. we're getting some light rain. a lot of cloud cover. this will not do much for the sierra nevada but a system tomorrow could help. 40s and 50s on the temps. you can see the system right there. after that, there's not much left. again, we'll 'start to wind things down in the next couple of hours. we'll wait for a system to zip down from the northwest tomorrow afternoon and evening. rain totals again, i think is overdone. they will back off. they always do as we get closer to it. i think tomorrow will be more of what we're used to.
that's a colder system. not one of these mild systems. the track on this takes us through noon. after that, i believe things calm down before 4:00, 5:00. i think we'll see the rain end. the next system comes down out of the northwest. i think it comes through a little bit later than noon. 2:00, 3:00 looks about right. that will have a lot of cool air with it. the next system on saturday looks to paint the picture for the rain north. i will deal with that on friday. morning rain, clouds. afternoon sun. a little bit of a break. but a cooler, breezy pattern today. highs 60s or even upper 50s. higher elevation, santa cruz mountains. for some up to parts of mendocino county, lake county. it will be tough to get above 60 degrees. we'll get a break tonight. thursday afternoon and evening, fast-moving cool system. that could give snow to the sierra. a cool and breezy day friday. there listen some rain. how far it fakes it remains onen didded. i think rain north but not
south. we'll get more rain tomorrow afternoon. >> all right. thank you. a prank on neo-nazis. ahead in the next hour of "mornings on 2," the way the one town tricked the extremist into raising money for a good cause. and stealing from a local gas station. up next, the promising clue police are looking at to find a thief who stole hundreds of gallons of fuel. female announcer: it's posturepedic vs. beautyrest

inside the residence. we were able to extract some of the res residents inside. we're searching. our merge team is on scene and clearing the house. we don't have any information about the suspect and whether he's in custody or not at this time. >> how many people were removed from the home? >> at least six people. there were approximately five children. we're still sorting out the information about who lives there and how many people could possibly be inside. this was this morning. >> is that when the flash bangs went off? >> yes. >> our merge unit did respond. they did make entry into the house and are still clearing the residence. >> so six people adults an five children? >> i know there are five children that have been removed from the residence. we're still working on who potentially could have been removed from inside. they are clearing the residence. >> sergeant, are you considering this a hostage
situation at this point? >> you know, we're still investigating it. we're not sure what led up to this. we're not entirely sure if we have the suspect in custody. so this still is a static situation. and once we can debrief the residents, we can figure out what happened. >> what triggered this? >> a call from a resident. they reported a subject was in the street with a gun and small child. that's what caused officers to respond to the res residence. we're still clearing the house. we don't know who else is inside. >> is it a house or an apartment? >> i think it's a town home. >> you said there were six people. five of them are children? >> at least. we're still sorting through. they are debriefing witnesses right now and trying to figure out what happened, who could potentially be left inside the
residence. once we determine that we can start to piece it together and what precipitated this whole event. >> to you know what the relation is between the people inside? >> we do not know. >> were the kid in any danger at any point? >> we don't know. we're still debriefing and figuring that out. >> do we know if he was pointing a gun at the child or if the child just a happened to be next to the man at the time? >> we don't know. >> was there contact with anyone inside the house overnight or was it -- >> you know, during this whole event, we were attempting to make contact with the residents and there was some success towards the end. but ultimately, they did have to make entry into the residence but people were called out and exited. >> you made entry into the residence. did you spot the man? is he still there or gone? >> we don't know. we're still clearing the residence. >> anything about the school can you -- >> the school is closed until further notice. the principal is still updating us. right now, it's closed.

i don't have information about who was pulled out or what the relation is is the subject or if they live there. we don't know that quite yet. >> you are looking for a 7th person? >> we don't know who is left in the house. we don't have a full account. >> if someone is in the house -- it's not like someone is a room and there is a locked door? >> that's correct. our merge unit is scene. when they are done and they've -- they've cleared, they will give us an update. >> the man with the gun, you don't know where he is? >> we don't know at this time. >> one person is in custody? >> we have a few people who are in custody. however, whether they are witnesses or associates, we'll still sorting through. all of them will be debriefed. >> is it possible the man with the gun escaped overnight? >> we don't know. it's very possible, yes. but we'll have to wait until the house is secure until we do
a thorough search. it's a very slow and methodical search. once that is completed, we'll have information for you. >> in isn't really a barricaded situation and you are it -- and you are waiting for something to happen? >> it's a slow search. our merge unit is conducting the search. okay? i will have additional information once they are completed with their search. and i get briefed. ive will come out and give you guys another briefing if you would like. okay. thank you. >> all right. we've been listening live, tori, a news conference. that's heather randol of the san jose police department. police surrounding a house in san jose. it was believed a man with a gun was standing in the street with a child last night. the call came in last night. and you can see a lot of police out there. they are inside the house clearing the house and some people have already been taken out. >> they said there were at least -- the sergeant said
there were five children, ages 13 and under. didn't know specific gender or ages. this is in the area of larch grove place and hayes avenue. it's near oakgrove high school. sergeant randol did repeat the high school is still closed because of the proximity. if we pan across, you can see from the home, the high school -- it looks like the football field is right across the street. that high school is still closed right now. anyone inside the high school is sheltering in place. it's still to be determined when the high school will be open. we'll keep you posted on that. again, no word on whether the suspect is in custody. and sergeant randol made it clear, they are clearing the home. >> six people have been removed. five children. that's pretty much -- they are still not clear where the man is. >> you saw it live as we saw it. we wanted to bring it to you. we well one you back to

it's located directly behind oakgrove high school in south san jose. that police spokeswoman, sergeant heather randol, had said they are doing a search of that hone -- of that home. right now, they don't think they have the man in custody who had the gun. they are unsure. they are in the middle of questioning all sorts of people right now. they are still out there at that scene where you see the live pictures there right now. they had flash bang green neighborhoods -- grenades that went off. let's go to video of what it was like earlier. this s.w.a.t. team used those to troy to get a man inside that house that had barricaded himself. that's what the original report came out as. police responded at 9:45 last night after guesting a call there was a man standing in the street holding a gun and that a child was with him. when officers arrived, the man
had already retreated inside the home. soap the s.w.a.t. team came out and has been spending all morning long trying to make contact with people inside that house. now, after that flash bang grenade came out, they said that people were removed from the house. they were saying about five or six children under the age of 13. right now there's no reports of injuries. they are doing a lot of questioning of witnesses. people who were there in that area. so again, a very developing situation. we have put calls into the principal at oakgrove high school. again, this is all happening behind there, as well as the school district. we haven't heard back but the latest police mentioned to us was that school was gonna be closed until this situation was resolved and right now, it's not. so we'll continue to monitor this. reporting live from our san jose newsroom, janine de la vega, ktvu channel 2 news. >> all right. thank you. 8:11. three people due in court

morning. in terms of this proposal, it's to raise student fees 5% for the next five years. university of california students currently pay about over $12,000 in tuition and fees alone. but if you include other things like food, room and board, it comes out to 30,000 per year. we also spoke to an out of state student from new jersey who says he pays about $55,000 a year. these proposed increases would affect him also. a lot of finger pointing on the gn with the -- going on this morning. the uc says the blame should also go to the state because despite a relatively better economy, there's been little to no funding towards higher ed funding. no question as you mentioned, dave, that will be a very heated discussion going on right now and later on this morning. >> the expense has blown up. it's making it harder and harder on students like me. a lot of other people.
you know, decreasing -- >> i think tuition is one of the funding options. the state could support the university more. so when we look at this, the fee issue is -- remember, half of our students pay no tuition at all. we really support our low- income students. i think it's a fair discussion about what we can do for california. >> reporter: we should mention that governor brown, who is expected to attend the meeting later on, does not support the tuition increase. i want to take it back out here live, where several students at the entrances, three of the entrances into the meeting this morning. we have seen students from all over the state, riverside, ucla, berkeley, davis, just to name a few. i can say there's been pushing and shofning as police had to clear paths for the regents to enter the meeting. many regents had to be escorted by the police to enter in. but very emotional. we'll be out there throughout the morning. we'll have another report for
the ktvu news at noon on whether they will make a decision for this tuition increase. we're live here in san francisco. brian flores, ktvu channel 2 news. >> okay. thank you. 8:37. well, it's being called one of the best cirque du soleil shows in a long time. kurios. it's now playing under the bigtop at san francisco's at&t park. now, so for this morning, alex savidge, who has tried biking, juggling and he sur -- and he survived. now he shows us with -- alex?
