>> i am laura garcia. can you make this out? it's wet on the roadways and wet on the lenses this morning. mike is keeping his eye on the roads as you head out the door. cierra johnson up in the north bay for us as well, but first let's get to meteorologist, kari hall, tracking our weather neighborhood by neighborhood. >> it's been raining harder in parts of the north bay, and we are seeing showers in santa rosa and san rafael. 101 in marin county will be very wet. we are seeing the rain on and off for san francisco and now picking up more for pacifica, and down to 280. we are seeing some of the heavy, and then light and moderate rain. in the east bay, we are seeing the rain taking a break for the most part. still, we are not done with the storm system. we can still see the moisture that is going to be streaming in off the coast, and bringing us
6:01 am
those scattered showers through at least noon. take a look at santa rosa. there will be mostly cloudy skies and temperatures heading up to about 60 degrees, and even at 1:00 there will still be scattered showers moving through, and some of the heavier rain once again for the north bay, for the coast, we may see an additional 0.1 to quarter inch of rain. the bay bridge toll plaza, the crowd is building and you will have to use your brakes for the crowd. not a lot of spinouts reported, but be careful. coming out of marin county, you see the cars building, and here in marin county, there's reports of minor flooding around the san quinton exit. there's slowing on the westbound bridge over towards san rafael.
6:02 am
the rest of the bay south of there, really a typical pattern. back to you. >> thank you. some communities are feeling the impact of the storm as it is moving through the bay area. you can see the wet roads on the bay bridge toll plaza. today in the bay's cierra johnson is live for us checking out the conditions there. how is it looking? >> we are going to get to an outage, a situation involving xfinity in just a moment. right now, the rain is coming on and off. before this hit the rain was picking up, and as we came on air, the rain slowed up, so good news there. we are in the main drag here, and there are sandbags here. two weeks ago we saw some flooding associated with the weather pattern, so folks really just wanting to be prepared. there was a situation, as i
6:03 am
mentioned, connected with xfinity. right now that internet provider is not sure if it's weather related, but we wanted to pass it on. that outage began last night around 10:00 last night impacting just the internet service, and the provider, again, not sure if it was weather related, but the issue was widespread as far north as ukiah. the local sheriff did ask that customers, as you could imagine, do not call 911 about the outage but instead contact the provider. the provider told us there would be resolution in the overnight hours, and as of now many customers are back on line. xfinity is owned by our parent company, comcast. right now some folks are seeing their internet services come back on. back here, folks are just breathing a sigh of relief.
6:04 am
we have not heard of any reports of any flooding, but there are, as mike mentioned, the usual suspects heading up from the city. i did notice a lot of pooling at the lucky drive stretch of 101, so be careful if you are in the marin area. be careful if you are headed out this morning. cierra johnson for "today in the bay." >> thank you. even when we are not on air, you can track that storm with the free nbc bay area app. it will send updates straight to your phone and even give you the weather right in your neighborhood. jack nice served as a san francisco police officer for 17 years. he died on saturday after testing positive for covid last week. police sources tell nbc bay area that he was among 41 officers placed on leave for not meeting

the city's november 1st vaccination mandate. the white house is responding to a court ruling blocking a vaccine mandate for large employers. today in the bay's chris pallone in is washington for us. >> the biden administration warns preventing this rule from going into effect could lead to dozens and even hundreds of covid deaths per day. the justice department argues there's no need for the emergency order, because the vaccine mandate doesn't take affect for more than a month. a federal appeals panel in louisiana temporarily blocked the rule on saturday. it faces legal challenges in more than half the country. ralph's market, a grocery chain in the southeast is one of the complainants in the lawsuit. >> this is a lawsuit that is not
6:06 am
anti-vaccine, but it's a lawsuit that is anti-mandate. >> if the law were to take effect in january, the mandate would affect 85 million american workers. mean while, los angeles to your south is enforcing some of the toughest rules in the country. it's requiring proof of vaccinations to enter places like restaurants, gyms and salons. >> i understand, chris, that mandate in l.a. is being met with some pushback? >> yeah, it is. there have been protests. as a matter of fact, thousands gathered outside the city hall to protest the mandate. several firefighters and first responders held a protest. a mandate requires city employees to get vaccinated. in the bay area, the san francisco human resources department says 98% of city
6:07 am
employees are now vaccinated, and san josé city officials say 95% of employees there are vaccinated. of the 354 that have not yet gotten their shot, all but 6 are on their way to full vaccination status or have religious or medical exemptions. the city of oakland is requiring employees to report a vaccine status by november 14th. back to you. >> thank you. 6:07. happening today, san josé leaders will decide the fate of a controversial downtown statue. the statue on st. james street shows the former mayor that was a captain in the mexican-american war. that statue became the focal point during the george floyd protests. the commission voted unanimously to recommend it to be removed. today the final decision will be made on that issue. a live look in the sierra
6:08 am
where snow is already falling from the storm passing through the bay area, and you can see the palisades ski resort. that's the real stuff there. temperatures have been low enough to fire up the snow-making machine, and this is the first time this year. the resort hopes to reopen on the 24th, or perhaps sooner if that snow keeps coming down. >> yes. how cold is it up there, kari? will we keep getting snow? >> you have to go really high in elevation to see the rain change to the snow. take a look at the small sliver of the blue indicating where we have snow, so you have to go up at least 6,000, 7,000 feet to see the snow. for marin county and parts of southern napa and sonoma counties, and we are seeing light showers. it may make your commute a
6:09 am
little slower. for the peninsula, also looking for light rain passing by. this is going to be the trend throughout the morning. i will be watching the rain coming through, through at least early afternoon. mike, you are reading the signs on the san mateo bridge? yeah, moisture and mist in the air. you showed the radar activity coming across san mateo and the dumbarton bridge, and the sign here says high winds on bridge, and that's the notice the chp gave overnight. have not had any problems reported. despite the mist and drizzle and light rain coming from the peninsula, we have not seen anything unusual in the commute. in oakland, there have not been any changes. there's active rain throughout marin county, though, so be careful. back to you. >> good advice.

6:14 am
were accessed after one of the customer service agents fell victim to social engineering. the records exposed were minor, things like peoples' names and e-mail addresses, but in a few cases the bad guys were able to access more sensitive data like birthdays, information to crack other accounts. then we will get important inflation numbers over the next few days, and consumer prices tomorrow. for the s&p 500, this is the 64th record so far this year, and we are 313 days into 2021, so that's a record 1 out of every 5 days this year. an incredible performance. tesla's stock was down and we called that yesterday.

6:17 am
the program in the back of the magazine. mike is waving his hand over in the corner. you would type it in as it appeared in the magazine, and i was 13 so it was more like this, and it would take days. you had to get everything just right for it to run. >> you miss one little letter or symbol -- >> yeah, one little letter. >> the more you know. >> exactly. >> stick around "today in the bay" and you will learn a lot. >> you don't know where that is? >> i had it when i was about 13, but don't know where it's now. 6:17 for you this morning. a live look at the richmond san rafael bridge. still slick conditions and wet weather continuing to move across the bay area this morning, and a reminder to take it easy out there. mike will get a look at the commute in just a bit, but kari is tracking the forecast for us. kari, a wet start to the day? >> yeah, so the rain is still
6:18 am
coming down. i'm still updating the rainfall totals. every time you don't see me on camera, i am looking through the rainfall totals. it's still adding up at mount tam, and we're over three inches right now. santa cruz mountains, 2 inches. it has not changed for antioch, about half an inch of rain and still decent, as we look at tiburon measuring over an inch there. a lot of the heavier rain moved out to the south and east, but we are still watching on storm ranger. you can do so as well if you have the nbc bay area app. you can put this little red scan on your smartphone. from san francisco, just after the city and toward half moon bay and extending over towards union city is where we are seeing the light rain.
6:19 am
the roads are definitely wet. as you head out, you need the umbrella. there are other spots where the rain has taken a break, and you can see the line of clouds extending from the coast into the bay area. a lot more moisture where that is coming from. this is why we are saying it's an atmospheric river. you could see the connection between the clouds and steady stream of rain. sometimes the atmospheric rivers can extend 2,000 miles out into the pacific. we will see an active weather pattern here going into next week, and the rain stays to the north of us. when it moves through, looks like a lot of the rain falls apart. that chance will be on tuesday. we are going to watch on tuesday for the next chance of showers, and in between we have dry weather through today. by the evening commute, it's starting to dry out and the rest of the forecast is looking nice
6:20 am
for veterans day. next week we will see more clouds moving in, and we will keep an eye on next tuesday. mike, that rain could complicate the ride for some? >> yeah, the big stuff is done from overnight, but here we still have light rain on the lens, and the rain will be an issue for visibility if your windshield wipers are not in good condition. the build is happening at the bay bridge toll plaza where we showed you. there was a crash that happened earlier this morning near san quinton, and that rain did leave lower spots with flooding or big puddles. be careful of the usual suspects. highway 4, it's showing here a slower drive. a smoother drive here. there were earlier reports of
6:21 am
flooding in some areas. hayward and northbound 101 through san josé, that second burst has not kicked in but will be here in the next 20 minutes. san martin got early rain but now we're calm. >> calm is how we like it. thanks, guys -- i mean, mike. it's 6:21 right now. coming up next on "today in the bay," "nbc bay area responds." >> we never know when the next power outage is going to take place, so you need to be prepared. i am chris chmura. up next, we'll show you how. here's kris sanchez.

6:26 am
prior to an outage, disconnect the power because power could return with surges or spikes that could cause damage. next, let's talk food. a fridge full of groceries is a lot of money. we get it. your fridge could keep cold four hours without power, and as far as your freezer it could keep cold as long as 48 hours if you keep the doors closed and stock it full. no need to run out and buy cheap pizza to fill the space. filled water bottles will do the job, cheap and effective. the warriors continuing their hot streak. last night at chase center steph curry was on fire leading the dubs to an easy win over the atlanta hawks. warriors now 9-1 to start the season, which is very nice. 6:26 right now. coming up next, the top stories we are following for you today,

6:39 am
costaa county, and in 2019, there were several inches. the next year we measured five inches. but normal, once again, 13 1/2. last year was really bad. we only measured two inches but the normal amount is 13 1/2, so we need at least maybe even 150% of the normal rainfall year after year to dig us out of the drought. we are seeing conditions like this in san francisco, and last year they measured 7 1/2, and that's nothing compared to the 22.89 inches they normally get. all of this is good, but we need this for several months and then years on end to dig us out of this major drought that we are seeing right now. >> hopefully not all at once. >> we don't need it all at once.
6:40 am
mike, you are monitoring the roads? >> yeah, the bay bridge toll plaza here on the lens, we see lighter rain. it's still falling around the bay and that could keep the roadways slick. here the volume is a bigger yield, too. not as much volume as we often see on a tuesday. some folks may have held off on the drive, and others may be riding or telecommuting as an option. over here, it's slowing on the san rafael-richmond bridge, and there could be ponding there as well. we are looking at a lighter commute and less slowing than usual. back to you. >> thanks, mike. we will have team coverage of all the lingering rain. >> yeah, we will look at the rain totals here in marin county, and what some folks have done to protect their businesses

6:45 am
that ruling to an appellant court and the supreme court will have to weigh in at some point. does the executive branch have the constitutional power to make such an order. in the meantime, many companies are moving forward with their vaccination requirements, and they do have the power to force you to get a vaccination if you would like to keep working there. the white house yesterday suggested it would win its court case, so companies might as well stick to the original timeline, and, indeed, that's what we are seeing. for what it's worth, 1,300 americans died of covid since the last time we talked yesterday. kamala harris is headed to france to meet with the president there, the french president. our relationship with that country poor after we skunked the french on a submarine deal. harris has a 28% approval rating. that's lower than congress, and congress almost always rates last in the heart of americans.

6:51 am
average for capacity. we are heading back into dry weather. temperatures in the low 70s for veterans day for the inland areas. more sunshine in the forecast for the weekend. once again, watching early next week, san francisco staying in the mid to upper 60s and dry weather after today. mike, how is it looking right now in oakland. >> kari, we will take a look with the live camera first of all, because the speed sensors don't tell the tale. watch the slick conditions. that's translating here over toward the green highlighting, where it means wet roadways like in oakland there. there's a little extra slowing here, and everything else looks standard. moving south, we have hayward. just a build for the normal commute patterns. the slick roadway, watch out
