4:16 am
take a look at that radar right now. green means go and the rain is go right now. we've been tracking this throughout the morning. it's coming down in many parts of the bay area right now? >> it certainly is. our storm ranger is up and it's tracking all of the incoming rain right now. sitting on top of san bruno mountain. if you can see right here, we're not seeing too much rain there. where you see the scan light up the red and the yellow hues, that's where some rain is. the line showers is expected to bring heavier downpours. you can see a couple of showers moving through hayward. you saw redwood city and through the san jose area as well. we can expect to see a couple showers continuing to move through. as this rain makes its way through, we're tracking some windier conditions. and within the next couple of hours, here's a look at what you can expect. we've got heavy pockets of rain heading through mill valley and even through the richmond area,
4:17 am
starting to see some more showers pushing through now. within the next half hour or so, we'll start to notice the rain really picking up in sonoma, napa and yonville. we're seeing hit or showers, hit or miss in some spots. we're even expecting to see some of that rain also push through the oakland and berkeley area. right now oakland and berkeley, not seeing too much of the wet rain right now. we're expecting that to kind of happen within the next half hour or so. we're going to continue to track this, at least through your early morning commute. we're still seeing showers moving through saratoga, san jose, lexington hills right now. we will continue to see the rain through the middle of the morning. when you look at that, compare today the future cast, you can see by 5:00 we'll see rain moving through napa, walnut creek, fremont, san jose, and all the way down through the
4:18 am
morgan hill area. so even though right now we're seeing the majority of the moisture off to the coast, you can see that by 5:00 a.m. we'll start to see that band of showers really pushing through. making its way widespread all the way down through morgan hill. and beyond the santa cruz mountain area. another thing we'll be keeping an eye on are the wind speeds. right around 6:00 a.m., we'll see the heavier pockets of rain moving through the north bay, even through san francisco and then again it's sticking around until about 6:30. if i take you to that 7:00 a.m. hour ho hour, we'll see a couple of heavy of pockets of rain. that's going to bring down pretty heavy downpours. if you notice the future cast, by about 2:30 we see the heaviest of the rain moving out. this is what our doppler radar looks like compares to the storm ranger's. it's mainly just green, so
4:19 am
that's what our high resolution map picks up on storm ranger compared to our regular radar. i'll talk more coming up, let's send things over to mike. a lot of activity out there. i've kept up one of the layers of radar we have because of the traffic and the weather is tied together. these are active radar hits right now. the rain coming in, strongest off the coast there. as i pull that away you see the green that's over here, these highlighted blobs. that's where we are anticipating the most roadway with puddling. watch all over the bay. that's the condition from overnight rain anyway. here's highway 17, no major problem. santa cruz coming up, through morgan hill out of hollister, everything is moving well. look at san jose, that's where we see the most green
4:20 am
highlighting left over. over here, the antioch bridge likely to see a lot of rain. the transit systems are running on tom. the weather has not impacted the b.a.r.t. schedule. sometimes the rain and especially the wind would affect those systems, but, again, not a problem right now. 880 does show the traffic moving. southbound, around auto mall parkway there is still the crash off the shoulder and into the dirt. people in austin, texas, are on edge this morning. two people are dead and two others badly wounded after a string of package bombings. the latest victim was a 75-year-old woman who is in critical condition. a package found outside of her home exploded in her arms yesterday. police say that woman was hurt just hours after a 17-year-old boy was killed and another woman was injured by another deadly delivery. a neighbor heard the explosion. >> i thought it was a shotgun,
4:21 am
but it was way louder. i heard debris afterwards. >> a similar incident happened on march 2nd. investigators are searching for a suspect and a motive. people who live in san jose's willow glen neighborhood are back in their homes this morning after san jose police brought in a bomb squad last night. it happened a little bit before 8:00 in the area of willow and meridian. at least four homes were told to evacuate. police have not yet told us what they found or if anyone was taken into custody. happening today, robots will be a hot topic for san francisco supervisors. the board is set to approve fees for robot deliveries in the city. they will have to spend $860 for a permit to test a device. the max is set at three applications. those applications won't be available until sometime after the board votes tonight, assuming the measures pass. it's 4:21.
