9:02 am
on the satellite and radar, you saw the sierra with the picture up to borel. come in closer to the bay area. still lingering rain out there. a lot of this is not reaching the ground right now. you might encounter light showers and sprinkles out there. we get breaks in afternoon and into tonight. we have to hold on to the possibility of scattered showers especially for your wednesday evening and early thursday morning. once again we will talk about the next system coming on board. that is a big deal for both saturday and sunday. it could be one of those things, maybe one of the strongest systems of the year. it will rank up there potentially. >> a lot more snow up in the mountains. >> exactly. we saw a lot happening this morning. >> yeah. >> it's going to ramp up quite a bit this weekend. >> i have a huge pine tree not far from the front door. >> yeah. >> i keep telling my wife it's not health i because of the drought. >> yeah. >> with the wind like you're talking about on saturday and
9:03 am
sunday, i'm concerned that trees will start fall. >> that is a good point. the system that moved through today already weakened things. it will come in a one-two punch. >> you have the saturated ground. who knows what can happen. >> look what happened in montclair in oakland. >> yeah. >> plan on power outages this weekend. >> thank you. >> thank you, mark. of course we have been talking about the snow up in the sierra. causing big headaches for drivers up in that area. developing story we have been following throughout the morning. chain controls in effect for both interstate 80 in truckee, heading toward truckee and also highway 50 heading towards south lake tahoe. you need to have chains or you need to have a four-wheel drive car and snow tires if you want to get through that area. big rigs are not being allowed to travel on either of those highways there. the freeway, interstate 80, that is, was shut down for a couple of hours because they had just white-out conditions. kevin cooper actually got stuck

9:05 am
northbound highway 17 at idyllwild road. residents were stuck and couldn't drive out because it was completely blocking the road. caltrans came and cleared the road. off of bear creek road off of 17, a car got stuck in several feet of water where the road floods. the driver was okay. caltrans cleared the drain. the ground is so saturated that it is causing mud and rocks to break away. the chp has gone to a number of the calls in the santa cruz mountains. there are some of the same calls in the gilroy hollister area. for the most part, no major crashes in the south bay. but police are reminding people, you know, slow down. when it does start raining again, make sure to put on those headlights. back to you. >> thank you, janine. happening at noon, the new oakland police chief will be introduced.
9:06 am
anne kirkpatrick. she was considered to head up both the seattle and chicago police departments. last june chicago actually hired her to spear head reforms. oakland has been without a chief since june when the city went through three chiefs in a week and a half. some officers have been embroiled in a sex scandal with a self pro claimed teenage prostitute. joining us this morning in the studio is henry lee. anne kirkpatrick, tell us what we're going to see here. >> we knew from the outset that mayor schaaf was looking for an outsider here. she is as outside as can be. no connections to oakland. she has a lot on her plate already. she needs to hit the ground running and deal with many constituents. we have seen a lot of police from outside quit and resaying nate. they're tired of the red tape
9:07 am
bureaucracy. >> i remember the mayor used phrases like macho. i'm not running a frat house back when there was the revolving case of chiefs seven months ago. the fact that she chose a woman to lead the city, what does that say. >> it speaks volume. she wants to clean house and have fresh eyes coming from outside of california to turn this department around. it remains to be seen. clearly the first female police chief in oakland, a lot of eyes on her. and we will see what happens. >> and the most important thing for any chief to do when they come in is to try to command the respect, especially of all of the officers. it's going to be a tough task for her. how do you think she goes about doing that? >> she has to meet with all of the command staff, the police officers meet -- go to each lineup. it will be tough. i specifically remember when anthony bats came in. he came from outside. i remember hearing on the police scanner saying bats was the new chief and the response was who? a lot of the officers may not have heard of her.
9:08 am
they will have to get used to her style and how she operates and see how she americans with the oakland police department and all of the challenges with the sex exploitation scandal and the ongoing federal monitoring. >> uh-huh. >> it is not an enviable job. a tough job. >> i remember when they introduced william scott as the new chief in san francisco. he said change is a challenge, going with what you were saying, alex, about working with the officers. i guess my question, henry, is this chief a leader or is she a reformer? it seems they was hired in chicago not to lead. she was one of the finalists but to be a reformer. and do you need that? are the chiefs nowadays, it is someone that can reform police departments and resolve scandals. >> you need both. she has been a police chief since 1996. she knows how to lead in three different cities in washington. she has only been in chicago for six months.
9:09 am
it remains to be seen how well can she hit the ground running. >> i saw in spoken she said that she implemented a data driven strategy that uses real time crime statistics to hold commanders accountable for crimes. >> that sounds similar to what opd is doing now. we heard it with the lapd. you need real time monitoring so if there is a spike in burglaries, you need to nip that in the bud immediately. >> this search took a long time here. 7 months. we didn't hear anything from the mayor about the process. do we know why it took so long? do we know if anne kirkpatrick was the mayor's top choice? >> we never heard of the finalists, let alone anne kirkpatrick. we knew that mayor schaaf and the administration did not want to rush this time around. reward had three chiefs. she did not want to make that
9:10 am
same mistake twice. she had to make sure that she had the right chief on board, listen to the citizens. she had all of the town hall meetings and questionnaires. what do you want. this is what we have. >> chicago was in the news because of the high homicide rate last year. 762 comings in oakland last year. there are a number of issues, internal issues, you know, the jasmine scandal. so many things -- such a complex problem, if you will, to try to solve. the fact that she comes from chicago with the high homicide rate, a lot of people say what were you doing out there that you're going to bring here. >> yeah. there will be a lot of skepticism. i have seen anthony bat. wayne tucker down the street from the sheriff's office who says i'm tired of all of the pure crack he's. when you're police chief in oakland, you're not really calling the shots. you have to deal with the city council, the police union.
9:11 am
it's not like wave a magic wand and boom. >> she wasn't brought to chicago to reduce crime. >> she is a reformer. >> she had controversy in spokane and officers there. >> she had a lawsuit filed against her. >> yeah. so you have to be ready to put your hat in the fire. this is a tough city to be top cop. >> >> long list of cheers. >> yeah. >> thank you, henry. we appreciate it. in the mean time, the police commission of san francisco will hold the first meeting of the year. there were 59 in san francisco last year. in the new year, it opened with two separate deadly shootings. the commission is scheduled to meet behind closed doors to examine the lawsuit brought by the officer's union against the commission regarding the use of force policy commission members approved last month. oakland and san francisco have police chiefs that come from outside of the bay area.
9:12 am
it is imperative that they get involved in cities they serve. we're asking you let's take it one step farther. should the police chief live in the city that he or she serves, becoming part of the community. one twitter user says yes, so should teachers. these have been researched and miley effective in transforming towns. >> vaughn says no they shouldn't have to. sometimes an outside view of a place is the best way to look at something. >> we got another twitter pops. this person said yes, too many of our existing police are not living here. the chief should live in the city that they are hired to run. >> what if i'm the police chief of atherton and i can't afford a home there. keep posting your comments and we will them to you at 9:30. a speeding train slammed into a station in new york

9:29 am
♪[music] >> at 9:29, we are checking your responses to the question of the day. we have been asking you throughout mornings on 2. it has to do with the announcement that oakland has a new police chief after a 7-month search. she is coming from out of the area. san francisco also has a new chief coming from outside of the area as well. should a police chief be required to live in the city that he or she serves much a lot of back and forth on this. jim writes, i feel requiring a police chief to live in the city is not reasonable. this reduces the pool of qualified candidates. i said what if i don't make $1 million to afford a home in atherton. >> so it sounds like don't rule it out if you can't afford a home. >> people feel strongly. i have a response here.
9:30 am
yes, over 90% of opd already live outside of oakland. the police chief should set an example and show pride and ownership. >> okay. >> dennis chimed in saying it should be their choice whether or not to live anywhere. i feel sometimes this is a good debate. i go back and forth with it. when you have someone in the department, has been there for 25, 30 years and live outside of the department, they have been working the beats for decades. they know the beats whether they live in the city or not. the question is why hire someone from outside. if you do do that, maybe that person should live in the city. >> right. >> because they don't know where the fruit vail or. >> right. >> or the quickest way to get downtown. >> right. >> something to say hiring from within. but also something to say it is nice to have an extra eyes on the department. >> just living in the city doesn't mean that you will know the city in and out.

9:34 am
to four degrees and snow started to pile up. now it's just a small break right now. but just this morning, about 8 inches in south lake and up towards kirkwood. highway 88 was closed. jackknifed trucks. caltrans. high avalanche danger. if went from moderate to considerable to high today. so definitely a lot of snow. an unstable snow pack right now. >> coop, is there such a thing as too much of a big thing up there? you're going to have a couple more feet of snow before the weekend is over with. can the resorts handle that good we can handle it but we're going to slow our roll. our ski patrol this morning, we used the hallster along with hand chargers. not opening upper mountain. they're going to take their time and look at the snow pack and do a lot of avalanche
9:35 am
mitigation over the next 24 hours. as you said, mark, earlier, this next wave coming in is also charge. so we definitely want to take care of the mountains as we have them now. don't expect lots of things to open right now. we're going to be as cautious as possible. >> and coop, how long does it take to assess the avalanche danger? will they have an idea tomorrow or friday? >> yeah. in fact kirkwood i was talking to the boys up there this morning. they were actually out on the mountain at 5:00 a.m. looking at it. there was a lot of snow load on the mountains as well. that is the first part of it, dropping the corners down. everybody is going to have that right now. so it's going to take us a day to assess that steeper terrain. but, again, we will get to it. but we'll just take our time. >> is this for you guys putting money in the bank? we talk about how long the season is going to extend on the back end.
