>>it looks like some are getting rain in the summer got it, yeah, but there's more where that came from as you can see i'm darya folsom and i'm james fletcher the radar kind of says it all it's going to be dicey for you this morning and was chatting with john earlier before we came on the air and he says the effort like the rest of the week and into the yeah, the i was still afraid while i was sleeping, i could hear it. >>like a loser and then my drive was dry, yeah. >>it's actually a lot calmer out there as you're leaving then if you would have left around 01:00am this morning which is definitely good news. mother nature at least giving us the brunt of the storm. while most of us were sleeping unless you're one of our night owls and ventured out into it. now for early risers you've still got the wet roadways for sure and we do still have the scattered showers but the heaviest of rainfall has left the region a pretty calm view but misty view from our berkeley cam out in the east bay this morning, let's get an updated look at your radar because there is still plenty to be seen out there, let's
move it just a little bit to the south so all that orange and green that you're seeing has now stretched across the santa cruz mountains or rather further south of the santa cruz mountains down along the big sur coast as well as into the central valley, so they're san francisco, san jose at the top of your screen, obviously things looking a little bit calmer for us here further to the north are most significant band of rainfall that we're in the midst of right now is this what i'm pointing at right here stretching from northern portions of napa county right around fairfield to also getting some rain right along 80 santa rosa in a surrounding portions of one oh one in the midst of some light to moderate showers now stretching out into the marin headlands now generally these showers are pushing to the south and to the east so areas right around san pablo bay, san francisco out to the east bay are going to be tapping into that moisture here temporarily as for the south bay. we have the czu complex fire burn scar right around here you see it outlined in red there this area saw
particularly heavy rainfall last night and that did result in that risk of flash flooding, we're still under the midst of flash flood advisories. good news though it is calm down right around the burn scar you can see the heaviest of rainfall now work its way further to the south right around hollister. morgan hill you're still holding on to some light showers san jose on the other hand taking a breather from the rainfall as of this moment now as we work our way to the forecast today you'll continue to see areas of rainfall. some of the heaviest of which is actually expected late afternoon into tonight ceo of times of dry skies this afternoon and then times where you also see some heavier rainfall popping back up and even the potential of an isolated thunderstorm popping back up in those showers too by the time we reach early tomorrow morning and even a little later tomorrow morning areas like san francisco santa rosa novato and napa could see an inch of rainfall in addition to what we've already seen and the ground is already saturated so that's going make for some very wet conditions all over again into the evening and into tomorrow

>>the storm has knocked out power to thousands of pg e customers and here's a look at their outage map where we can the green the yellows the oranges and in some cases, the red to where we're widespread outages but for the most part in the south bay. we're looking at pockets that anywhere from 50 to 500 customers without service that's what the yellow indicates it's the orange that's even worse and then of course once you get to read you're talking about 5,000 plus customers without power. but that's what we're seeing right now a lot of it is happening up in the the higher elevations of the east bay hills the santa cruz mountains. really start to see it right now too. and across the east bay for the most part once we get up to the north bay you really have to look towards the coastal hills and also the wine country hills and again it's it's where we've got those larger trees on hillsides that are coming down taking out power lines so be patient pg crews out there right now trying as best they can to. the energize the lines
are impacted repair it and get that power restored to soon as possible. so keep it to kron 4 make sure to download the kron 4 app i will always provide the very latest information there we've got the live radar we've got breaking news alert. pgd outage updates all of that for you again it's a free app so today 5.10 is the time right. >>and bay area covid efforts are feeling impact of the storm too there's a mass vaccination say a san francisco city college and it had to shut down yesterday because the rain at least 250 appointments had to be rescheduled. so now those folks have to get their shots and a different time they're think it will reopen on friday. >>moscow the center set to become the second mass vaccination site in san francisco with a 3rd high volume site to open later in the bayview mayor london breed made the announcement on twitter saying that the moscone center alone will have the capacity for at least 5,000 doses a day once the city receives enough supply when that will happen is >>san francisco mayor london breed says a lack of covid
vaccines is hurting the city's effort to protect thousands of people from the virus. yeah, the initial plan was to vaccinate at least 10,000 people a day but with vaccines in high demand and short supply it's really a mystery right now as to when the city will reach that goal. >>so far san francisco's received about a 144,000 doses again with nearly 60% of those already used with the mass vaccination sites in the plans along with community and mobile clinics to target the most vulnerable. more vaccines are needed now. >>to fully deliver this plan they need more vaccines and we will continue to do everything we can to be ready when our supply of vaccine doses increase. >>nearly 60% of available vaccines in the cities have already been used the remaining 40% is set for people who need their second dose. mayor breed says the city needs about 420,000 doses to protect frontline workers and those who are 65 and older. >>on tuesday president biden
nasa plan to ramp up distribution to well for millions of doses to states and that would be a huge help here in california. the states have received these and they're now responsible for digging them up for communities. governor newsom announced plans to help revamp the state's process of getting these vaccines out to individual cities. we'll keep track of how that progresses going. john. >>one of the big concerns about the rainfall we saw last night was our burn scars and the potential debris flows at the burn scars outlined in red there's that has see you complex fire burn scar and the csu scu complex fire burn scar. you can see conditions have calmed down in the vicinity here and that's good news because we saw heavy rain along them last night. i'm tracking the latest in our showers still to come. >>and multiple sig alert and we're also seeing high wind advisories across most of our bridges your commute into the city slick and wet still under 10 minutes for you we're going
to continue tracking your commute that's up next. ever wonder why your just washed laundry doesn't smell... just washed. that's because there's hidden sweat and body soils that cause odors on your clothes. but there's a solution for those secret stinks: gain flings laundry pacs! gain flings has more freshness ingredients compared to bargain liquid detergents. they have 3 super powered ingredients that fight stink: oxi boost, febreze odor remover, and concentrated detergent. just toss in a couple of pacs. gain flings works in all wash cycles, even in cold water. try gain flings and smell the difference or we'll give you your money back.
they're going to chain requirements for you once you get up there if you're planning on heading up there that is the question john is when would one head up if they didn't already leave i know before the snow started so daytime hours always a better recommendation to travel because during the evening first and foremost you oftentimes get the ice formation after a day's melt. >>daytime hours today will still come along with additional snow just to bring the chains with you anticipated taking a minute to be getting up there in the sierra nevada, especially the central sierra still in the midst of some heavy snowfall, the northern sierra beginning to ease off the gas pedal as far as intensity as snow goes. but it is still snowing all the way up into the southern cascades and even the coastal range is to now what we're going to be seeing through the day here in the bay area's also a foot off the gas pedal as far as the intensity of our rainfall goes the most intense of showers have now exited the region further to the south on across the central valley and the central coast itself. what that means for the bay area's
not that we're out of the woods but just that we do have a bit of an easier day to get outside compared to where we were in the middle of the night last night you see that heavy rainfall now moving down i 5 just south of los banos what we will be seeing here in the bay around gilroy on up towards. morgan hill is still some isolated shower activity. tnings have calmed down around santa cruz as well as around san jose, isolated showers in the east bay right now just north of hayward north of san ramon as well line of showers stretches all the way up into the quirkiness couple light sprinkles around concord right now rainfall gradually moving to the southeast around marin and southern sonoma counties on up into napa county too. these showers were more so up here the last check i had with yet and will gradually be moving further to the southeast over the next 30 minutes or so that means more rain for san francisco richmond down to oakland as well as from fairfield down to conquer this rainfall all pressing that direction so get ready for that as far as conditions in the big picture
goes we are seeing colder temperatures to our north. but we're right at the edge of this cold front that just skirting right along the bay area and along this frontal boundary there's your moisture plume the atmospheric river that today is bowls i'd right along the central coast. so the central valley, central coast southern sierra really tapping into the bulk of that moisture this morning. we're at the tail end of it now, but we are still getting some residual moisture from the storm resulting in a few waves of showers pushing in and out across the bay area today embedded in the showers the potential of some thunderstorms. so you may hear roll of thunder or 2 as we work into the afternoon we've already had some offshore lightning this morning. just west of point raise so we've already seen a couple of those pop-up showers we're not even into the afternoon yet skies will remain mostly cloudy today by the time we work into the afternoon. there's one of those pop-up showers right around san francisco to marine county around 02:00pm to 03:00pm today. more and more of them into the latter part of the afternoon a resurgence of moisture as we work our way
into your wednesday night and thursday morning and that will add on top of what we've already seen the potential of an additional inch of rainfall these next 24 hours you see how rainfall totals really begin to rise as we work our way into the evening and eventually into early tomorrow morning this will set areas like san francisco oakland hayward napa nevado up for the potential of over anna did inch of additional rainfall just by the time we work our way into tomorrow. now the good news for marine sonoma and napa counties we've seen those flash flood advisories expiring we still do have some in solano county as well as upper elevations of the east bay and then the santa cruz mountains still in the midst of some flash flood advisories through the day today. winter storm warnings and blizzard warnings remain from lake county across the northern sacramento valley on into the sierra nevada and the sierra specially one of those areas where we are going to be seeing additional feet of snowfall on top of what has already been feet of snowfall so that's going to snarl
traffic up there and yes you do want to get ready for a slow go in a treacherous go as you head up into the mountains. temperatures today will rise into the 50's across the bay area and as far as temperatures the next 7 days not changing too much. we will see our driest of days to note on friday after morning showers should get a dose of sunshine and a solid stretch of dry weather friday afternoon. after that showers work back into the picture saturday and sunday and rainfall all over again to start next week monday and tuesday. reyna john thank you so tracking those sigalerts this one right here on in castro valley. >>eastbound 5.88 eating can year-old offer and you can see traffic is starting to improve. so i would say don't even take an alternate route just go ahead and take your time and get out on the roads a lot earlier southbound 6.80 to southbound one oh one out in san jose that's closed due to another traffic collision at alternate route. that's really good for that 87 alright high wind advisories. they've rich detail. ridge

democrats need the support of 17 republicans in order to convict president trump democratic senate majority leader chuck schumer said that conviction must happen. and now that senators are sworn in the next step will be hearing the arguments and that's set to begin in just 2 weeks time. we'll take a break at 5.22. we are following the wet weather as we have stormy conditions across the bay area this morning with more on the way john trouble keeping us updated on the forecast harvey. >>keeping us updated on the impact is this having on the roads out there we'll be back with updates just a minute.

outside this morning. it's fairly calm compared to where we were last night but that's not to say we don't have more rainfall on the way it's just the most widespread and heavy stuff is now accepted the region berkeley. cam it's like pretty solid all morning long a little misty from time to time. what we're seeing right now if i zoom out just a little bit here on the picture you do see that heavier rainfall now moving out into the central coast, the central valley and for snowfall, the bulk of it now into the central and southern sierra nevada so that means areas further northward not necessarily out of the woods but at least out of the woods from the heaviest of rainfall which conveniently fell while we were all sleeping last night there are some areas of rain especially to know right around marine county right now you see that area of pretty heavy rainfall right around mount him well this line of showers has gradually been moving further southeastward through the course of the morning and will continue to do so as we work our way through the morning so expect this shower activity to further moving to san francisco areas like richmond
oakland, san leandro as well as conquered walnut creek down to the tri valley eventually as well so this line of showers or next bit of moisture that will be put pushing further and further southward on into the core the bay now we do have burn scars of 2 fires outlined here the first the czu complex of the santa cruz mountains and then the scu complex over in the diablo range is both of these areas saw significant rain last night and that's the flash flood watches. we have seen conditions coming down for these areas, but the ground is saturated and we have more rainfall ahead. nestle's flash for flood watches are still in effect right now you can see just how much rainfall we do still have in the forecast ahead of us, although we do take a step back from it today, rainfall, we'll definitely pick up into the latter part of the day today and into the evening tonight that will result in the potential of over an inch of rainfall more by the time we reach tomorrow morning for many of these areas that have already seen plenty of rain already. so continuation of
wet weather ahead of us and wet roadways too. at least we're mild this morning. current temperatures are in the 40's and 50's. so don't worry so much about staying super cozy this morning just stay dry with the rain jacket and the umbrella reyna john thank you for that we've been tracking multiple sigalerts all morning. we just had one clear. >>here in castro valley east bound 5.80 at eating canyon road off ramp that is all clear you can get through the air. but another one that's still there southbound 6.80 to southbound one oh one down in san jose, those are still closed. we actually have a live look at that right now for you can see that big rig there this crash has been a problem on that highway all morning long so they have that shut down a good alternate for you to take is 87. all right, let's get a look at our high wind advisories, one for the bay bridge. the san mateo bridge, the golden gate bridge, the dunbar bridge the richmond sandra fell bridge and the any a bridge. you can see just how slick it is out there as you head into the city from the east bay to the fremont street exit it's still under time minutes for your
commute. the san mateo bridge as you head across to the peninsula there you see brake lights starting to form all that wet roadway. there 13 minutes for your drive time the richmond sandra fell bridge also very slick one heading at a richmond 7 minutes now we've been seeing roadway flooding across the bay area all morning. and san francisco, i'm seeing it pop up as well eastbound 80 at 7th street southbound to 88 cesar chavez street in san francisco at one oh one southbound at silver av in san francisco show. that means drive slow on the roadways because you don't want to spin out and get into an accident. back to the headlines. thanks a lot 5 33 1 of the biggest areas concern this morning and with this storm has been santa cruz people evacuated ahead of the rain because of. >>mud slide concerns, yeah, a lot of the area there was scarred by the czu complex fires over the summer for sarah stinson joining us live with more on those concerns evacuations in what situation is like. >>this morning, good morning sara.
>>james darya we've seen it all appear overnight in the santa cruz mountains we're talking rain snow fog. slick roads out there even when you're on the one o one i mean it's like slick in flooded and a lot of areas when you drive down to the south bay. we're live here at the scotts valley community center this has been an evacuation center. a place where you can get resources. there's a bathroom, there is water snacks and the help you in any way they possibly can if you do in fact need to evacuate as we know this area is in an intense situation because if this storm continues. >>to smack us like it did last night as you can see in the video. we could see some potential flooding. we could see a flash floods you can also see mudslides as well you can see in that video from boulder creek it has been intense rain rates in excess of half an inch in 15 minutes reported in and near the czu burn area this is why flash
flood warnings are flash flood advisories rather are in effect for the people who live in the burned areas. >>you can hear it it just it was intense, less i mean it was scary going to bed this could be very dangerous situation if the rain keeps up and creates a mudslide or floods in the area with the toxic chemicals from the wildfires, some of been ordered to evacuate the most have been warned about potential evacuations depending on how the storm plays out obviously can change in a minute and that's why we have meteorologist john treatable checking in on it cal fire just tweeted about an hour ago saying they are responding to reports of downed trees. >>and many other hazards on road this and they've cleaned up everything that the let us know if more happens we can let you know. >>also we saw snow in the santa cruz mountains, yes know as i said take a look it was up in the higher elevations, so this morning we will be looking for snow rain debris. everything will be looking for it to let you know what we see out here live in the santa
cruz mountains in the scotts valley region and i've reached out to cal fire in people, i know who live in the area so we will be in the know when things happen for now we're getting a bit of a break from the rain and i am not complaining, it feels good out here, it's a little cold but definitely watch the roads out there very dangerous take it slower than you would normally send it back to you in the studio all right, thanks. a lot sarah. >>5.36 the time every county except for san francisco is under a flash flood warning because of the rain that we're seeing with more rain in the forecast as well with people across the bay area that need to prepare for possible flooding some areas in marin county or expecially are especially prone to fast-moving waters. rain came swooping in yesterday making officials warning cautioning residents of the dangers officials say with the lack of rain for a while it's important to take the storm seriously fact one business owner says it's unnerving to face another big storm. >>i have are in for a while so i'm familiar with the storms

sierra that's incredible well, i mean good news for courts and also for the snow pack john just got to get their yeah it's got to get first, we just didn't make it there that's the yeah i would say save the pow pow for later on ok i there especially in the dark don't don't drive overnight exactly did driving overnight not the best idea, especially not after that feet of snowfall we got last night guys are exactly right the crest of the sierra nevada. that's where the bulk of our mountain snowpack forms and we're really sticks around into the later months of the year. >>receiving well over 7 feet of snowfall in some cases that is the sierra snow that we needed to see because we were falling behind before this latest system and we do have more snow ahead of us too so this is all good news. now there's obviously the disadvantages of seeing so much rain and snow all at once one of those is are burn scars. we do have so much acreage of land that burned this past fall and summer season as you remember and a
lot of that is now exposed and vulnerable to debris flows as well as flash flooding. a bit of good news this morning is that the heaviest of rainfall has now cleared some of those problem spots that officials were especially worried about the south bay, especially around the scu complex fire and the czu complex fires. in the blows in the santa cruz mountains both of these areas are nice and calm right now as the heaviest of rainfall moves into the central valley and now along the central the central and southern sierra is in the midst of that heavy dose of snow right now well lake tahoe starting ease off just a bit but only temporarily let's zoom in on the south bay right now as i mentioned we've come down in the santa cruz mountains the diablo still seeing some rainfall but nothing like the intensity. we saw last night gilroy some light showers for you one oh one is very wet. as we just saw conditions drying out within the past couple of hours. we are seeing a bit of a calm down right now for the east bay, couple of scattered sprinkles here and there. but overall 6 not looking bad
right now it's wet. but rainfall has tapered off for that part of the bay area. now our next line of showers not as significant as what we saw last night mind you it's starting to work its way down right along 80 through sonoma county and eventually down into san francisco where we are currently seeing rain beginning to pick up pockets in there where we are seeing some heavier rain in marine county on up into southern sonoma napa county and in the counties this line of showers is going to continue to gradually push further to the south and east and that means areas like richmond and eventually oakland down to hayward will be getting in the mix with an uptick in rain as you will from walnut creek down into the tri valley. we're right in the midst of that atmospheric river to our north colder air dipping down in and allowing this to tap into this moisture plume that stretches immediately to our west today, it's really bulls eyeing the central coast as well as the central valley. that's where you see the most of our moisture right now we are in the midst of still
continued scattered and will continue to see those on into the afternoon today embedded in the showers the potential of thunder and lightning a few isolated thunderstorms possible popping up this afternoon you actually see this around 02:00pm to 03:00pm right are in san francisco down to san mateo counties. so watch out for that potential rainfall sees an increase in the evening hours tonight and expect widespread showers into the evening. isolated pockets of heavy rain in a few rolls of thunder strikes of lightning expected with these overnight showers tonight could see some pretty good downpours pushing across the bay area. so we've already got saturated soils and now additional rainfall on top of that that in many areas could have to add up to an additional inch of rainfall during our overnight hours as we work our way through the evening on into your thursday morning. that still causes concern for burn scars, especially in the south bay around the santa cruz mountains and the blows and that's we're still under flash flood watches for the same areas as we work our way through the day, sierra nevada
still in the midst of winter storm warnings in fact stretching all the way over to lake county and blizzard warnings that the crest of the sierra as its that heavy snow paired with some pretty strong winds on those more exposed mountaintops don are on top of what you've already seen could see another 2 feet of snowfall just within the next 24 hours as for temperatures today, upper 50's to be expected and temperatures the next 7 days not changing too much beyond that. now our of this forecast is expected friday. so if you need to get out and accomplish some stuff outdoors it's a friday afternoon as the best time to do it. showers will pick up back into saturday and sunday monday and tuesday of next week looking rainy as well reyna john thank you sourcing alert in san jose's gone or not in san jose. our sigalert in castro valley is gone or sigler to san jose still think it's a problem and you could see the traffic is starting back up. >>southbound 6, 8, a southbound one oh one are close. we actually have an image of this is been an issue since about 4 o'clock this
