[applause] >>i really returning to the bay area pockets of heavy downpours right now more coming tonight. >>the wet weather hitting during rush hour making for a dangerous commute out there. it has not rained for quite a while so the roads may be slick. now at that 80 up to tahoe white out conditions. this is forcing some closures on the interstate tonight. thanks for joining us. everyone, i'm catherine human in for grant lotus and i'm vicki liviakis we have team coverage tonight on this
november's storm. our first dan kerman he's live for us in the north bay where one city is still dealing with the effects of last winter. but first chief meteorologist lawrence karnow is tracking the storm for us lawrence the system is being called a cyclamen explain. yeah, this is a room. >>rapidly intensifying storm system really in just the last 24 hours didn't look like much at all the gulf of alaska, but look at it now this is a serious storm that is moving in the california is going to change everything for us. this week of course we haven't seen any significant rainfall so far this season we're getting it now you see the snowball so piling up in the sierra nevada too driving up there very very dangerous tonight. some blizzard conditions expected across the sierra nevada winds gusting there over 65 maybe 70 miles per hour. but look at that rain coming down in the bay area's we take for a closer look. you can see some of those showers popping up some heavier bands now making their way into parts of the south bay they will get some
downpours are really taking the better part of the day to get the rain in that direction otherwise the showers continuing across san francisco stretching into union city parts of the east bay too and then the main cold front is actually just beginning to move into the north bay where they've seen the most significant rainfall so far some of those are rain totals upwards of a half an inch of rain so far and there's plenty more to come. in fact there is some concern tonight and some of the north bay that we're looking at the possibility of some flash flooding. so some advisories have been posted in those areas and the north bay specially in and around the contained fire of the burn areas not able hold out water there's just not the root systems from up last there so certainly concern that we could see some flash flooding there. but this storm season looks like it is kicking off finally it took a long time to get here. the rain now rolling back in the bay area gray skies outside there tonight and more showers on the way maybe even some thunderstorms too. and it's going to be so
cold guys not only are we just going to see the snow in the sierra nevada likely going to see that our local mountains to well morning weather guys coming up. >>in a few minutes height, lawrence real weather to talk about yes lawrence pointed out if you plan to to this year for thanksgiving, you know it actually might be too late. heavy rainfall already forcing closures on highways headed to tahoe. and it's going to get worse tonight. this is a live picture of interstate 80 at castle peak blizzard conditions at this hour. a chp says westbound traffic is being held up in turkey and then eastbound traffic at all to that's 2 to several crashes in the area any cars you see here are just residual traffic but the interstate between truckee and all to is closed and caltrans says it could actually close more roads depending on the storm's severity. >>and for a lot of people the storm is marking the really the official start of rainy for those concerned about drought, yeah, it's a good sign. but for those who are worried about landslides. >>it most definitely is not kron four's dan kerman live
for us tonight in sausalito with details. hi dan. >>hi we're right here along crescent avenue we've got a light drizzle coming out now this is the bottom of where that one house slid down the hillside and hit another house, this is all that's left all of that debris that we saw for quite some time was finally removed within the last couple of weeks now the concern is making sure that while there is no longer any brush or debris on the sell side. problem is to make sure that none of the hillside comes down you can see right there there's some protective netting up the hill where that landslide began there is a plastic sheeting along that area and they're hoping that will do the trick. throughout this rainy season. a light rain over sausalito isn't that big a deal unless of course you live on this hillside along sausalito boulevard it was in february when the land above broke free crossing the street and sending one home crashing down the hill into another on crescent avenue.
earlier this month that debris was finally removed and replaced with sea breeze and this green protected i had few ideas too. >>get some growth back on the slope and to keep it from eroding during rainstorms. just before the rain hit tuesday, public works crews put in some extra protection to catch green material before it goes in the storm drains on crescent that additional drainage system is also planned for this area in the next couple of weeks above sausalito boulevard plastic remains on the slope where the actual slide started that's to keep additional water from getting on to the hillside that should reduce but not eliminate the risk of future slides. anybody who lives in sausalito should always be concerned about the steep slopes in which they live up on so. it's it's hard to say if something is going to move up above us but we're going to manage it as best we can. >>the city is also working with the park service to put additional monitoring devices on the hillside itself which should help alert to any
additional movement as for residents, the rain raises concerns for some but not for others. >>one said to these people and from what's happened. but i don't feel personally endangered by it. >>so is the first rain of the winter season arrives here in sausalito we're kind of in a wait and see mode this does not look like it's have enough at least not at this point to do anything here and this area we'll be talking again in february and see how sausalito has fared live to incur back to you in the studio. >>all right dan happening now some people trying to get home others are trying to get away. here's a look at the roads right now all all around the bay. >>the bridge is the bay bridge, the golden gate to sandra fell the san mateo bridge is some heavy traffic at the golden gate for example, northbound traffic started getting really heavy early in the afternoon and you can see it's a lot of people apparently already headed off for thanksgiving. and this strong storm that has police
warning drivers about the dangerous road conditions of course we'll show you what it looked like in marin county this afternoon. it doesn't look too bad there, but plenty of traffic. the chp says because it has not rained in a long time. oil buildup from cars and that is making the roads pretty slick as always there suggesting you keep a good distance between cars. coming up we're going to talk to the chp about road conditions and when they are expected to be at their worst. the weather in your neighborhood any time with the kron app you'll find. >>full forecast to interactive radar. and weather alerts straight to your device download the kron 4 app today. >>and it happened again another car has been hit by a projectile along a stretch of highway one oh one this happened near prune dale dozens of cars even a school bus. i have been targeted to chp is stepping up enforcement in that area as thousands of people. >>early traveling the through there for the holiday, new

stepped up its presence from san juan road to crazy horse canyon in to prune dale along highway one 56. there's precious little drivers can do to avoid being targeted that people are scared and want the attacks to stop whoever does are sick. and they need to go to jail. >>and they made to maybe put more of an effort out here before somebody does get killed. because it's scary. the people's lives at stake. >>now the chp says the number of projectile stretch, maybe higher than 42 because it fears that to some of these are going on reporters who urging drivers who become victimized by these projectiles strikes to immediately stop call 911 and a demand an investigation also the chp says that private parties have offered a $1000 reward for information in the case live in ferndale rob fladeboe kron 4 news. >>bond to the peninsula now palo alto police have arrested a home intruder after startling the people inside.
