5:02 am
microclimate weather alert. >> not because today is a crazy weather day aside from the fact it's cold. it's because we have another storm on the way this weekend but wow, santa rosa and napa 28 degrees. napa 29, that is below freezing. san jose dipped down into the 30s with a cold 38 degrees and we are under a frost and freeze warning for some parts of the bay area. livermore, san jose, concord, morgan hill under a frost advisory and freeze warning through santa rosa, napa, san rafael and now you know why because we have the 20s on the map. through the afternoon expect the chance of scattered showers but the majority of the rain is off to the east. we have plenty of snow if you're driving through certain parts of fresno. look at the roads, green, we are good to go. san jose showing clear conditions. we have plenty of clear roadways, it looks like a lot of people don't have to head back to work today which is good and
5:03 am
all those who did go out to black friday seemed like an early start. westbound 80 toward the bay bridge seven minutes. and i don't suspect they'll be turning the metering lights on at the bay bridge any time soon. a quick check of the tri-valley drive times, southbound 680 from 580 to vargas road only ten minutes. the east bay i'm giving you a grand tour, southbound 680 from 580 to vargas road only ten minutes commute. back to you guys. >> love all that green, thanks. new overnight a scare for thanksgiving shoppers at an east bay store. five people are now in custody tied to a shooting outside a target in fremont. it happened late last night at the store on fremont boulevard and mowery avenue. at least one shot was fired. no one was hit. we just spoke to police. they tracked down the suspects while responding to the reported shooting. the suspects led police on a chase and were taken into custody in nearby newark. police say besides recovering
5:04 am
the gun they found stolen video games. take a look at this. this is water streaming down the street in the hills of san francisco. it is a mess. there have been three of these, and we've got thom jensen out there live this morning in the cold taking a look at that. >> the last thing people want to deal with waking up the morning after thanksgiving. thom, how is it looking out there? >> reporter: good morning. you guys, a little hard to hear you right now. they're firing up the heavy equipment here. we don't know how extensive flooding is to the homes here, three homes were flooded, but as you can see, they're working to repair this 12 inch main that ruptured here late last night. this is the culprit, that caused most of the damage. when you saw that video, the video that you showed when it broke last night the water was screaming down the street as you said it was deep enough to run
5:05 am
into three homes and cause damage to garages and basements in the homes and a lot of damage to the roadway itself. a six inch line and eight inch line also broke in this area, although puc is telling us it's probably directly related to this break after this broke, it caused those lines also to be damaged and to open up. it sent a flood of water on to northbound lanes of highway 101 causing traffic to be routed to i-280 around withstanding water for a short period of time. we have the jackhammers fired up now doing a little more work. another water line opened up in chinatown, not a line break, that caused some damage to the roadway there stopping cable car service and causing a lot of damage to the street itself. we understand that repairs have been made there. i was there a short time ago and sounded like it sounds here.
5:06 am
they had the jack hhammers out, heavy equipment in chinatown. they did repair that and we are being told that cable car service will not be affected later this morning. as far as what caused so many lines to open up, looked like it was just this one main line that broke, causing damage to two more lines in this area, and then the leak in chinatown, unrelated to this. the main point is getting repairs done so they can restore water service to this neighborhood. we're live in san francisco, thom jensen, "today in the bay." >> that is a lot of work and other people will have an early morning with the jackhammers. other news investigators are looking into another case of something being thrown or shot at a car in monterey county. this is the 43rd time this has happened this year in the prunedale year north of salinas. the latest incident happened
5:07 am
before 8:00 last night on eastbound 156, a car full of a family was headed toward the san miguel canyon when something hit the car. it shattered the glass and fell onto a man inside the car and cut his arm. here is what one of the passengers had to say. >> it was kind of like a balloon popping. it was more disorienting than anything but i guess, i mean it's lucky that nothing bad happened. >> yes, yes. >> but something bad could happen. >> another attack happened monday when a van carrying a family was hit. there's a $4,000 reward being offered to find who is responsible. it's 5:07. president trump is back in south florida this morning after making a surprise thanksgiving visit to troops in afghanistan. there he is serving turkey at bagram air field. more than two hours he was there, he sat down with the baghdad president as well. there were strict instructions

5:09 am
that time, in an area where she used to live. back to the microclimate weather alert. v v this morning we get a good look what the last storm system left behind in the sierra. the sierra got three feet of snow in some spots. this morning the national weather service has a warning to people who are headed up to the sierra this weekend because of more heavy snow to come. plan ahead. the best bet leave the bay area by tonight or early tomorrow morning before the next snowstorm hits. these low temperatures across the bay area are putting thousands of people and lives, people who live on the streets, putting them in danger. santa clara county is opening up warming shelters through tuesday, 19 different warming centers in fact will offer a place for those folks to stay. and we will be tracking all of the changing weather throughout the weekend. our website is a great resource. you can download our free app with access to our live radar.

at least one shot was fired but we know nobody was hit. we've been talking to police, they tracked down the suspects while responding to the reported shooting. the suspects led police on a chase, taken into custody in nearby newark. besides recovering the gun they found stolen video games. take a look at this. multiple water main breaks in san francisco, patrero hill and chinatown. >> the good news is they are working on it. the bad news is it's very loud. thom jensen you were out there with the jackhammers, that's a heck of a way to wake up on a day off for those people around there. >> reporter: again, having a tough time hearing you guys right now. they just pulled up this piece of heavy equipment behind me. you can see at petreira hill the 12 inch line break caused most of the damage last night, and they need to get this fixed to
5:33 am
get water service turned back on to this area. after that line broke late last night, you showed that video earlier, water just came rushing down the asphalt here turning the street into rivers. it was deep enough to flood the garages and basements of at least three homes and caused a lot of damage to the pavement. a six inch line and an eight inch line nearby also broke as a result of this rupture. meanwhile, water ran on to northbound lanes of highway 101, causing traffic to be routed around that standing water, up on i-280, until they got the repairs made there, water off the highway. the highway is open this morning in both directions. another water line broke meanwhile a leak puc is calling t not a break, but caused a sizeable fissure at mason and jackson streets chinatown shutting down cable car service for a short period of time. repairs were completed there
5:34 am
just a short time ago this morning. back live, no word yet on what caused this line. they're still getting an idea of that as they dig in there, and get a look at the line itself, and until they get this fixed, though, the people up in this neighborhood will not have water service. we're live in san francisco, thom jensen, "today in the bay." >> thom, thanks. investigators are looking into yet another case of something being thrown or shot at cars in monterey county. it's the 43rd time something like this has happened to a car in the prunedale area north of salinas. this latest incident happened just before 8:00 last night on eastbound 156. a family was headed toward san miguel canyon when something hit their car and shattered the glass, which fell onto a man inside the car and cut his arm. here is what one of the passengers told us. >> it was kind of like a balloon popping. it was more disorienting than anything but i guess it's lucky that nothing bad happened. >> yes.
5:35 am
>> but i mean, something bad could happen. >> another attack happened monday when a van carrying a family was hit. right now, there is a $4,000 reward being offered to find who is responsible. back to our microclimate weather alert. a one-two punch. >> that's right, freezing cold temps followed by another storm that's coming in, so people are getting ready. this weekend's atmospheric river event a real concern for communities that were hit by the wildfires, because the terrain now is very fragile, not much to hold back the mud, even the santa clara county area near los gatos was torn up by the loma fire, that was three years ago, and it's still recovering. one homeowner says residents ready for the storms, he's not so sure about the soil. >> there's all the massive water t gets super muddy and there's a couple times about last year we couldn't get out of our house. we had to have atvs come and

5:37 am
we have these ladies, what did you buy? tell me what you bought. >> i bought a lot of clothes, bags. >> reporter: for yourself or presents? >> some were presents, most of it myself. >> reporter: what time did you get here? >> 12:00. >> reporter: you got here at midnight. did you have thanksgiving dinner before you came? >> yes. kind of rushed one but yes. >> reporter: i'm thankful, let's eat the turkey, let's go. happy thanksgiving. >> you, too. >> reporter: happy black friday. i want to show you the line for sta buc starbucks, this is apparently how people are sustaining themselves through the shopping frenzy. look at the line here. this is one of the longer lines here at the mall this morning. they've been open here since 3:00 this afternoon. yesterday, not this afternoon, 3:00 yesterday afternoon. so some of the stores are dark, maybe not participating or maybe closing for just a few hours,
5:38 am
but it has been very busy out here. we seem to be in a bit of a lull this morning right now. so security guards say there's plenty of parking. you should dress warm because it is pretty chilly out here. i'll go back to you guys. >> thank you. >> reporter: what did you buy? >> some box gear. black friday was a success. >> reporter: very good. >> hope you had a good thanksgiving. y'all drive safe. >> reporter: do drive safe out there. there are a lot of folks crossing the roadway and whatnot. back to you. >> that was a great find, kris. >> reporter: i'm more hard news breaking news kind of girl? >> yes. no, but you're doing a great job. you're just breaking in. >> reporter: where is bob redell? he's good at these. >> this is his assignment normally. >> you're doing a great job, kris. she's usually capital "j" journalist and today bringing it down for shopping black friday
5:39 am
>> it is a dangerous drive this week on bay area roads, not just because of the rain from the recent storms, but what the storms left behind, a lot of new potholes and with more storms in the forecast ch the forecast, expect things to get worse. aaa says it's a good time to inspect your tires and car's suspension system. slow down of course before you drive over a pothole and remember puddles can disguise deep potholes. earlier oakland began a $100 million to project to repave city streets. normally when we talk about the weekend weather, we're all oh it's exciting and great. this one has storms. >> it is serious because they are already looking at flash flood watches through the burn scars for the kincade fire. i'm going to try to break down the timing for you. the hour-by-hour outlook friday
5:40 am
8:00 a.m., it looks dry but if i fast forward this time line i'll take you hour by hour, we start to see some pockets of rain moving through saturday at about 5:00 a.m., we start to see the rain moving from santa rosa, san rafael, half moon bay, hayward, oakland, around the 5:00 a.m. hour and fast forward a little bit more around 8:30 and look at this cell right now, a line of heavy downpours right around the 8:30 hour. we'll get some rain by the morning but by the afternoon, not even the afternoon right now, the speeds are kind of speeding up a little bit through early morning. we'll get a combination of wind and rain, so by the afternoon and evening, i'm going to fast forward this time line more, notice the timing, 5:00, 6:00, 7:00, 8:00, 9:00, 10:00, 11:00, we get rain all day on saturday, and these pockets of the yellows and the reds, those are periods of heavy downpours at times. that is going to sweep through saturday. saturday is going to be extremely dangerous when it comes to the road conditions. but also i want to get to that flash flood watch that's going to take effect saturday at 1:00
5:41 am
p.m. through monday 4:00 a.m. for the north bay, santa rosa, san rafael and napa. at risk is the kincade fire burn area that i was talking about in northern sonoma county. the impacts potential for rock slides, debris flow and flash flooding for locations just down the stream of that burn scar so that's going to be a major area for concern, but so is the sierra travel. beautiful sight there, if you managed to make it up to lake tahoe, look at the sierra forecast. frigid, cold temperatures and snow, once the new storm rolls in saturday. your travel window to head up there is right now through early tomorrow morning. back to you. >> vianey, thanks >> it might be black friday but next week, many people are expected to donate to charities as part of giving tuesday. >> and if you are one of the many who are wondering who should you donate to? our consumer team has advice on how you can find organizations who can use the help this holiday season.
