bodega bay and san francisco in a long time. i don't think that's going to change any time soon. the trend is for a north system to drop in. there goes the low. that was a very good one for us. you don't get severe parameters like that. and still low snow levels towards monterey, in the hills of monterey and all the way to southern california. the system is now producing rain. 30s and 40s on the temps on the peninsula. palo alto is 135. menlo park is 39. and fremont and union city at 48. 40s on the coast. belmont 46. the wind has cranked up out to the delta. gusts of 40 at vacaville. our system is clearing rapidly. a few partly cloudies in the morning commute. and sunny today and breezy and cool and our next system is on the way for wednesday evening. 50s, 60s, santa rosa is the
warmest with a nice breeze. 4:31. we had a busy day yesterday. hoping today is a little quieter. i know you say thursday we'll have big time. and on wednesday night i'll have to get my sleep. good morning. i normally stay up all night. >> i don't blame you. >> just kidding. hope that you're getting on the road soon in solano county. right now we have a decent commute from vacaville, fairfield, vallejo, or the richmond area to the carquinez bridge area. 80 westbound looks pretty good. the benicia bridge looks nice. this is 880 in oakland and that's off to a nice start. people who get up early are getting a nice commute. a couple of lanes have a little bit of congestion. and for the most part a nice looking drive getting on the bridge and heading to san
francisco. it's 4:32 back to the desk. san francisco police are investigating a possible kidnapping on sunday morning. and they say the victim and the suspect are still missing. a witness saw a man drive up to a woman and the man got out, pushed the woman into his car, and drove off. the car was abandoned nearby. the woman is 27 years old. the man is 31 but there's no other information so far. you heard steve talk about the weather. and when you talk about bay area weather there's a lot to talk about. it snowed on the highest peaks, including mount diablo and mount hamilton. and more snow was reported in the south and east bays. the cold caught most by surprise but they're happy to have storms after so many dry days this month. one man who grew up in virginia and is seeing his first california winter says this is
not at all what he expected. >> it's not actually as beautiful and warm as everybody says it is. beautiful, sunny, but not that warm. >> i hear you. and there was hail and snow in sacramento. unbelievable. it's expected to be drier across northern california today. as you heard steve say, there's another storm in the forecast tomorrow night or thursday morning. time is 4:34. and cal/osha is investigating the death of an experienced landscaper who was electrocuted while trimming a tree. rain and wind could have been factors. he had the day off from his main job and booked a side job with another company. he was 30 feet in the air trimming an oak tree at a vacant house. he cut a tree limb and it fell
with the front half touching a transmission line. his friends are contacting the family in mexico to plan the funeral. >> he was a great guy. he was calm. he was nice to everybody. he was a really nice guy, funny. >> it was a gruesome scene. his body was tangled in the electrical lines for hours. first responders had to wait for the pg&e to cut off the power before they could remove the body. oakland mayor libby schaaf is being criticized after she issued a warning after hearing from credible sources about possible immigration raids in the bay area. >> many decisions that i make have risks and rewards. i do not regret sharing this information. >> after her statement, the
alameda county immigration legal and education partnership said it had confirmed 11 ice deportation arrests in the bay area region. the mayor's office has been flooded with angry phone calls and e-mails but not just from conservatives. liberals are questioning whether the mayor did the right thing. >> ice is using rumors of raids in order to scare people. and we've seen immigrant communities refraining from reporting crimes and keeping kids out of school. and refraining from going to the hospital when they needed care. >> this video shows a man being arrested in napa. an ice spokesman in san francisco says sanctuary cities are not immune from federal law. work on the suicide net, the barrier for the golden gate bridge, is expected to begin
this week. according to the marin independent journal, the steel is due to be cut in oregon, since the bridge board unanimously agreed on a contract to build the barrier in december of 2016, most of the work has been happening off site. the crews will start working at the golden gate bridge by the middle of this year. officials say the net will be gray instead of red to blend in with the water. they hope to have it completed by january of 2021. time is 4:37. a family from texas that recently practiced a fire drill put their skills to good use when their apartment caught fire early yesterday. you can see the flames coming from inside the building. the mother of three children is calmly handing the children over the balcony railing to firefighters who rushed to the scene. the children who were four. >> , and 8 years old, along

you do have to surround yourself with experts. and for us the expert in gas and electric is pg&e. we run about 2,500/2,800 fire calls a year and on almost every one of those calls pg&e is responding to that call as well. and so when we show up to a fire and pg&e shows up with us it makes a tremendous team during a moment of crisis. i rely on them, the firefighters in this department rely on them, and so we have to practice safety everyday. utilizing pg&e's talent and expertise in that area trains our firefighters on the gas or electric aspect of a fire and when we have an emergency situation we are going to be much more skilled and prepared to mitigate that emergency for all concerned. the things we do every single day that puts ourselves in harm's way, and to have a partner that is so skilled at what they do is indispensable, and i couldn't ask for a better partner.
