6:01 am
along the coast where the winds are strong. lagunitas right now starting to see this pick up a lot of this is right off the coast and now it's dumping right on you through mill valley. it will start to pick up more shortly. so you definitely have seen a lot of heavy rain over the past hour. and now you're going to see more of it. there's more right off the coast that's heading your way. through san francisco, daly city, south san francisco, it's a little bit lighter at the moment. but there's just a lot right behind it. and then through half moon bay, about a half inch of rainfall per hour there and it's heading towards redwood city, woodside, portola valley right now facing some strong rain as well, same with palo alto. it's lighter in the south bay and campbell, but through fremont right now it's still strong. union city, as well. moving up a little bit further north san leandro, castro valley, still dealing with this. this is over the past hour, you have seen about a half inch come down. through piedmont, oakland, as well. now let go to the north bay and show you what they're dealing with. so that flood advisory did expire about 4 a.m. but look, all of this rain just started picking up in the past 30 minutes. kpix 5's jessica flores
6:02 am
joining us live in napa. jessica, how are you doing? >> reporter: hey, neda. you're absolutely right. it really did start picking up in the last 10 minutes or so. it's tapering off but it was coming down really hard, really windy, the rain basically bouncing off the ground hitting my legs so that's what we are going to see all morning long. that's why this wine country really is bracing for possibly any mudslides, any flooding for the -- there it goes. see, it's picking up there. they have been bracing for the possible flooding that comes with this rain and they are really worried about the burn zones in front of homes. you will see signs like this one that says, you know, erosion control. they have been trying to basically clear homes of any debris for the past several months. in santa rosa they have cleared 83% of empty lots. folks are already putting lots up for sale. there's more than 200 lots
6:03 am
there up for sale. but the fire department says homeowners still need to maintain their properties because they are concerned about possible toxic runoff. and mudslides when they have heavy rain. >> we have seen what happened in southern california. we have been very fortunate we haven't had the volume of rain up here but regardless, we still want to be prepared. we still want and need these measures to remain in place so we don't have issues. >> reporter: back out live to me i want to show you what's going on. it comes in and out. the water is really coming down hard at the moment. that's why again they are very concerned -- we don't have the flood advisory anymore but there could still be ponding, possibly debris flows. they have been clearing out a lot of storm drains preparing for this and stabilizing hillsides but again if you are driving on these dark roads like where we are in this silverado country club area that was really hit hard by
6:04 am
the fires, this whole area, a lot of homes, basically completely gone, if you are driving in these areas, it's hard to tell where you come across flooding so drive slow and if you do come across any flooding, mudslides, any debris flow, to call authorities right away. reporting live in napa, i'm jessica flores, kpix 5. the rain is creating treacherous conditions in the south bay. kpix 5's anne makovec is at one of the hardest hit area in the santa cruz mountains. and anne, your jacket is looking very, very wet. >> reporter: yeah. this is refreshing. i'll just look on the bright side at this point. at 6 a.m., it's been coming down all morning long, all night long really so the roads are really wet right now. i'm at the summit of highway 17 here in santa cruz county and you can see the road here behind me a lot of the cars that you're seeing, those are cars going north. a lot of them commuting to silicon valley and jaclyn has been warning us to take it slow on the roads this

6:17 am
throughout the morning. so just east of half moon bay we are seeing heavy rain, woodside, palo alto. the south bay not so bad. we are looking at lower rates in san jose. they usually have rain shadows so it's not as significant usually. sunnyvale and cupertino not so bad. but east of san jose, alum rock there that's a good amount of rain coming through. through fremont, finally it's starting to wind down a bit. still heavy rainfall but the stronger cell is east towards sunol so that's where you will start to see about a half inch of rain per hour there through san leandro, not moved from your neighborhoods. it's definitely coming down really strong there on interstate 880 and 580 so that's going to cause some ponding in the roads. and also wind gusts are strong throughout the day today noticing gusts around 20, 25 miles per hour. but some of those are up to 45- mile-per-hour gusts. through el sobrante also seeing some steady rainfall there. and then across the north bay,
6:18 am
there was this flood advisory that expired just before 4 a.m. but the heavy rain is still there. you got a little bit of a break. look how much rain though came through 24 hours in venado up in the north bay more than 4 inches. st. helena almost 2.5". yountville almost 2. san francisco these numbers are going to all start to rise. this is just 24-hour totals. we could see another two inches in many of those locations with some of the hills seeing up to 4 more inches left in the system. visibility down to 2 in half moon bay. six in hayward. so it's going to be tough to see. it's going to be tough to drive. blowing sideways rain all because of these strong winds. righting an lot coastline, about 3 -- right along the coastline, up to 35 miles an hour. santa cruz mountains 45-mile- per-hour wind gusts and the north bay dealing with strong winds. after noon today, things will start to calm down. you will see a little bit of that sunshine. but the problem is that's when we could see instability and we could get those thunderstorms. temperatures right now upper 50s, low 60s. we are going to stay in that range for your afternoon highs. so it's not going to cool off at all today.
6:19 am
we are not going to warm up at all today but chance of thunderstorms stay in your forecast more rain in store friday, saturday, sunday with a low that's coming down from the north. a different type of system and then finally sunshine next week. going to be a rough couple of days for commuters. right now we are tracking some problems. this is right at the summit road right at highway 17. we have some lanes that are blocked due to some downed trees that took down some wires. so right now, traffic is starting to back up on summit road. it's a mess on summit road and highway 17. crews are just arriving on the scene so avoid summit road right now. that's where the big problems are. we are seeing delays along 880 northbound direction two lanes blocked. this is just past 237. you can see that backup
6:20 am
quickly developing and we have that speed that drops down to 20 miles per hour just approaching the scene of that crash. chp is there and hopefully they can get that cleared shortly. michelle? elon musk is betting big on himself. tesla's board of directors approved a compensation package for the ceo. it could be worth more than $55 billion over the next 10 years but he is not guaranteed anything more than minimum wage. for him to collect the full amount, tesla's market capitalization would have to reach at least $650 billion. that's more than 10 times its current value. bitcoin still isn't a household name but twitter's ceo jack dorsey says it will move the planet within a decade. to date, high transaction fees, high volatility and minimal adoption by merchants have prevented bitcoin from becoming an alternative for regular currency. steph curry has missed the past 6 games for the warriors but i got good news for fans. and saint mary's goes to

6:32 am

6:36 am
from san francisco, to san jose, so we have been through all of it. by the time it's all done in the santa cruz mountains, we are expecting five inches. neda upped that stat about a half-hour ago. originally it was four inches we were expecting but we have already gotten well over 2 inches. we have a couple of flood advisories to the south in the monterey area nothing like that here but the reconcern in the santa cruz mountains is the possibility of rock and mudslides. we saw some of that last winter when we had months and months of rain and that can be really dangerous especially when you're talking about a roadway like highway 17 here behind me. the mountains butt up against the road. at that point, you know, you can have serious accidents when it comes sliding down. i'm soaked. i don't have a dry layer left. we are down to the skin here, folks. but we are going to keep you post the throughout the
