above 3,000 feet so you're going head into free to get to the past get your snow chains. i change ready to go because we just saw that in the video because that probably will be needed right yeah, definitely need those chain as you guys mentioned of yemen and the roads already in or planning and crossing the sierra your window is closing in closing very quickly as that snow will be on its way some of our with the us conditions tonight, some of the most eccentrics excessive snowfall and that's why doubt conditions likely to be seen on into the evening with those winds with that fetus now not good news for travelers and during such a busy travel time to i know it's definitely not ideal. we've got clear skies right now what a beautiful way we've been starting the day so far all across the bay area and really across the state even the sierra looks great right now all this changes towards the middle of the day as those showers descend on into the bay area light showers at noonan, the heaviest of rainfall looking likely right

definitely not just the sierra that's going to be looking at that dose of snow. that's going to be all around the bay area here in the bay, some snow on mountain tops but under lower elevations, it's just rain and some frigid temperatures. this is where we're sitting this morning a few spots in the 30's. we've got some 20's for inland lows. and some of our evenings to come as for temperatures later today do expect 50's that's definitely cooler than what we were yesterday now as we look at rainfall pushing on into the bay you want to stay with us right here, not just on kron 4 but on kron on now is the time that you can get on the app we're going to keep you updated. but moment by moment as the showers drift and a lot of times the showers will drift in in the middle of the day such as the case today and we're going to meteorologist here through the day to keep you updated on exactly what you can expect. robert. >>thank you john what they can definitely expect a slower drive heading into and out of san francisco and oakland side we have a big backup here at the toll plaza, this goes through the bottom of the maze

tonight in the midst of some of the heaviest of rainfall. i showed you just a moment ago the kincade fire burn scar susceptible to debris flows could see some localized flooding in these areas and then windy conditions on top of the rain which just doesn't help the situation. so that's what you're encountering if you do decide to the roads tonight as for temperatures today, well it will be cooler than yesterday down into the 50's were will remain in the rest of your forecast. tomorrow rain and summer coal dust of temperatures along with the showers at thursday and friday staying cold but clearing out at least before more rain looking likely saturday into sunday. robin. >>all right, thank you john we're checking out the golden gate we want to take a peek at the traffic heading into and out of san francisco looking good right. this is a beautiful shot, not too much traffic 23 minutes here from the bottom to the toll plaza, you just have this little stretch of crowding south one oh one working your way into sandra fell. but that's about it looking good turn of otto looking good through marin city checking the bay bridge

through there. the pot looks like a flooding situation day after day this is video of the area. after water was pumped out by a cruise, so it's a losing cause caltrans is pumping more than 2 million gallons of water every day to try to solve the problem. well, the drivers are still complaining saying the water is a driving has or whether they drive through it. around it. the water has taken a toll on the pavement as new cracks and potholes seem to appear as fast as there are filled those rain water is now forecast to drivers fear the problem would only get worse and that is ground water. coming up through that pavement. >>well major cell phone carriers are promising to make changes after last month's

into the grapevine if you're heading south or well across northern california for many of our northern counties even towards some lower elevations. so very slick conditions if you're driving north south or east and for the bay area also going to be slick with continually rainy conditions on into wednesday tomorrow, a busy travel day before thanksgiving. looks like thursday and friday should be you're better days for travel as conditions will really come down by then especially on into friday for your black friday shopping. now for the sierra got to know that it's not just some snow up there it's a lot of snow multiple feet of it once you head above especially 3,000 feet that's where you're really going to be looking at the snow really piling up well above one to 2 feet possibly even up to 4 feet at the crest of the sierra you add in winds gusting up to 60 miles per hour you've got white out conditions, drifting snow and blowing snow on roadways. not a good recipe for heading up into the mountains today, especially not tonight. temperatures as i mentioned been chilly this morning. most
of us are back in the 40's by this point many of us have fallen into the 30's napa holding as well santa rosa, you're each still in the 30's but expected to rise into the 40's and eventually 50's later on today 50's will be in company by heavier showers into the late afternoon and right around sunset tonight time tonight some of our heaviest of rainfall. i'm talking what else to expect as we make our way into the holiday still to come and if you want to stay with us as those showers fall, you can do so by following kron on we're going to keep you updated all day long here. so you want to check out your radar here the latest information make sure to uh give us a look there on kron on robert i thank you john over to 92 are checking in on the san mateo bridge looks much better. >>earlier this morning was packed we have some accidents and hayward now it's thinning out so a lot of folks left town that's why we're not seeing the usual crowd here from the east bay to the peninsula. so we are down to a very nice 17 minutes to make it off 2, one to one check out the favorites trip into san
francisco does not look good. we're starting to see get trip making and it's only 12 minutes to fremont street as we get closer and closer to a thanksgiving day, it's just got to get better and better lighter and lighter. let's head over to traffic tracker we're checking in on the dumb barton 14 minutes across the bay for more to dublin, you're good. no problems on one oh one it's just recovering from an earlier crash. so if you're traveling into or towards san francisco. one oh one still a little heavy from 3rd street to the skyway because of that earlier accident on the lower deck. james well. thank you very much. >>robin let's go to the south bay right now our public agencies working to try to figure out the cause of a smelly problem them enough to beat us all my goodness you ever smell that driving through milpitas even on a sunny day when his so far the cause has been narrowed down to at least 3 sources kron four's maureen kelly tells us those sources. >>it's a problem that's been lingering for decades so much
so some people refer to the city of milpitas as smell pitas even though the owner also affects parts of north san jose and southern fremont i can't smell it myself today but people i've talked to describe it as like rotting garbage. now the bay area air quality management district is going to take a year long comprehensive look at the possible causes to the stake. there are several suspects already a wastewater treatment plant a landfill and recycling plant. >>all are believed to be contributing to the smell. this study is going to try to pinpoint the cause is so they can be dealt with this. >>a study is intended to do is to use laboratory instruments laboratory great insurance. and very very low levels of celtic compounds that are producing the old. so we'll hopefully get to. what sources are producing what odor. what percentage of voters so it's
called source attribution some people i talk to think the study might be a big waste of a lot of money. >>but others think if they can get rid of the smell it would be worth it, know. >>there's a thing can be done because i mean it's a landfill and that's just going to how it so i don't know that that's like. use of a lot of money to figure out or where it's coming from, but if they can figure out a way to you like and i suppose that the good. >>this is not the only study into the source of this smell this month. the city launched another $85,000 community odor monitoring pilot program which will collect samples and data weekly through october 2020. maureen kelly kron 4 needs. >>from know ptsd san francisco where break ins or just out of control most most recently the break-ins are happening to russian hill businesses take a look at the video. a burglar broke into the new russian hill market convenience store located on pacific avenue. the
burglar shattered a window and took office cigarettes and make out that burglars face right there. this is owners well they're dealing with thousands of dollars worth of damage on top of the stolen items and now they want the city to do a lot more to protect them. it's devastating to the brick and mortars. >>because you know we don't make a lot of money as it is in. it's killing us drop the hammer. you know if you go to pacific are other cities in the bay area. they don't have these laws that will make it easy on the criminals, they punish them accordingly. >>so they want stricter laws oftentimes in these cases, the criminals are never caught and some business owners say it's so bad, they don't even bother filing a police report. coming up on the kron 00:04am morning news. >>north a woman is helping the long-term fight for a cure for alzheimer's. we'll have a special report on that coming up. plus a daylight shootout in the east bay we're going to hear from the shop owner who went after his armed robbers.
>>they an armed robbery in oakland led to a shootout in the streets when the store owner decided to fight back. it happened yesterday morning in the grand lake district, 2 armed men stole about $60,000 worth of items from a rare coin store. well as soon as they left the store, the owner grabbed his own gun and went after them. the store owner in the robbers engaged in a firefight on elmwood avenue in the end the armed robbers dropped the stolen items and sped away. >>this is trying to protect myself stuff i can take a. $60,000 head. we hope can i believe he shot at me so i shot a couple of times at him. he dropped a bag and kept going up the hill. guy was in a car and he drove by and he shot at me as he was driving away. i took a shot at him. >>well in the chaos of all of
that shooting there was a stray bullet that went into a nearby home and ended up hitting someone in the leg. luckily that person's going to be ok. the police are trying to find out now whose gun that bullet came from. as we head to break, here's a quick look outside we've got our san francisco international airport camera this morning where at the moment, the weather's nice so we're not looking for any delays on that front. but certainly by tonight and into tomorrow, especially if you're flying out here is a plenty of time because sfo with stormy weather is always a slow and we'll be right back.
>>welcome back 8.45 on this tuesday morning ahead ahead of what will be a rainy finish the day look at how nice it's been out there continues to be pretty good looking over us. berkeley currently you are seeing just a few more clouds drifting overhead but and that is nothing compared to the cloud cover about to see and the rain and snow for the mountains at least that we're about to see as well will be
activity across the state whether you're heading into the sierra are seeing here in the bay area. you're going to be running into some slick conditions for the bay. it will be some very uh heavy rain come the evening commute tonight. peak rain hours between 5, 06:07:08pm, tonight, right in the middle of your evening commute is when you can expect some of our heaviest of rainfall. but it will be widespread beyond that picking up around noon for some areas, lasting wealth through tomorrow and for the sierra nevada feet of snowfall are going to be seen not just today but into tomorrow resulting in blowing snow drifting snow on roadways. what you factor in the strong winds that we're going to be seeing along with it so not your best travel day, i'd recommend saving the travel if you can at least and tell thanksgiving today, not the day to be on the roads thanksgiving itself in friday for black friday looking great before this happens yet another round of rain pushes in saturday on into sunday. the weekend after thanksgiving another busy travel one and another one that you're going to be greeted by some rain and
snow if you're heading into higher elevation areas as for how much rain we're about to see we could see anywhere from a half an inch to above an inch of rainfall just over the next 24 hours. so this is a good first rainfall the have timing of it that's what's the pain in the neck here 50's for your current temperatures or other your daytime highs later today across the bay right now we're still in the 40's and we're going to remain in the 40's, the 50's we push the your next 7 days. some of our coldest of days actually be thanksgiving and friday black friday, look at those evening lows. inland falling well into the 20's. robin wright, thank you john over to the richmond center fell bridge west bound 5.81 of our busiest bridge is right now it's really not bad. >>it's backed up to speed on the western drive on around to find westbound so you're looking at roughly a 10 minute trip to the north bay. check this out the bay bridge traffic pretty much god earlier we had a backup that spilled into the maze, it's not there anymore. so a great trip into san francisco right now a little pick up the nimitz because that's one of the heavier freeways coming
out of the east bay, he looks variance a lot of crime coming out of san leandro passing the coliseum entering downtown oakland. so that's a 24 minute trip and one more. get the 85 slow in little pockets at 26 minutes from san jose to mountain view back to you. >>8 48 is the time november is all timers awareness months and national family caregivers month. this morning kron four's grant lotus is sharing a special story which onors both. hand in hand precious moments now frozen in time. >>in january his life was brand new her life 81 years of it was in the final months of an all timers battle. both needed help with the most basic tasks and the person there for them was vanessa carter. leslie had just made her a mom and vow to is her mom my husband and i moved back to my childhood bedroom back in her old timber on home so vanessa could be there for her mom i don't think that i
