good morning. protests are expected when the alameda county supervisors meet about whether sheriff's deputies should take part in the urban shield program. we'll tell you more about the push to stop this law enforcement training program. flames started dropping into the yard. and i realized this thing is closer than i thought. >> a scathing report suggests that sonoma county could have done more to alert people about the wildfires. this is ktvu mornings on 2. >> 5:00 and welcome back to mornings on 2 this tuesday, february 27th. i'm gasia mikaelian happy to be in early today for pam cook. >> good morning. i'm dave clark. let's talk about the weather. steve paulson has a trillion things to tell you. >> well, there are a lot of things going on.
yesterday was one big one. things have calmed down. we had rain and afternoon thunderstorms with numerous reports of hail and snow. it's all clearing out rapidly. mostly clear skies and the wind has picked up for many certainly around the bay and out to the delta. there goes the system and i think it's about rain in santa cruz and monterey and southern california. look at that line that went through l.a. and into san diego with more going to rotate in later today. they'll probably get more rounds. 37 in santa rosa. and 37 in fremont. and 39 in sunnyvale. a lot of readings. there's the morning trifecta. advise at 43 -- santa cruz at 43. los gatos. 44. the napa airport has gusts to 32. a windy day out of the north
and that will cut right through you. after late afternoon, upper 50s, 60s and that north wind and the infection system comes in tomorrow afternoon and evening. and it's going to be here for three days. 50s to near 60 on the temps. 5:02 and we're off to a nice start. traffic is going to be okay if you're driving on the altamont pass. it's a little bit slow and i would say it's normal. let's go there and talk about 580 and 205. you can see traffic is moving along pretty well as you drive on 205 and 580 for this time of the morning. you will be slowing down but nothing unusual. when you get over the altamont pass it picks up all the way to castro valley. this is a look at interstate 880 in oakland and traffic is going to be okay. and some of the outside lanes are getting crowded at the bay bridge. an employee with the fremont police department was
hit by a truck and injured while walking in cost row valley -- castro valley. it happened northwest of don castro regional park. the chp tells ktvu that a ford pick up was going southbound on center street and hit a pedestrian in the crosswalk. the pedestrian is an off duty fremont police employee taken to the hospital with what are described as massive injuries. the truck driver remained at the scene and is cooperating with investigators. alcohol and drugs do not appear to be a factor in the crash. we'll get an update from san francisco police about an officer involved shooting earlier this month in golden gate park. the suspect is accused of shooting two people and killing one. the man reportedly carjack add it to and drove to alameda street where police found him in an rv parked at a homeless
camp. the suspect fired shots and the police fired back and eventually, the suspect surrendered. san francisco police will give an update at the recology golden gate center. urban shield training is held every year and officers come from around the world and go through intense s.w.a.t. imlations. supporters say it teaches how to deescalate volatile situations. but opponents say it's military training. in gilroy, the death of a suspect who died after being tased by police and then put in a restraint hold is being investigated by the santa clara county coroner's office. gilroy police responded to reports of a suspicious person
in the backyard of a house on chestnut street. the suspect, a 42-year-old gilroy man ignored demands to surrender and ran on the roofs of several homes. one witness heard him fall. they made physical contact with him when he was on the ground and he acted violently, forcing them to use a taser and a restraint hold. he lost consciousness and later died at the hospital. the case against nikolas cruz, the man charged with killing 17 at parkland will not be in court today. prosecutors are asking for hair samples, fingerprints, dna, and photographs of the suspect. in a separate court matter, cruz's lawyer wants to disqualify a judge on the case. the defense says the judge is biased in favor of prosecutors, threatening cruz's right to a
fair trial. a committee in the florida state senate has voted to raise the age to buy rifles from 18 to 21 and it would create a three day waiting period for buying weapons. and it would confiscate weapons from those who showed violent tendencies or signs of mental illness. california lawmakers are taking action, proposing 10 new gun control bills. one bill would expand the definition of an assault rifle. and another would crack down on homemade ghost guns. and another bill would permit people convicted of misdemeanor domestic violence from owning a gun >> thoughts and prayers -- that phrase has become an insult. if the federal government is not going to lead. if colleagues are not going to
lead. california needs to lead. representatives with gun owners of california called these proposals attacks on law- abiding gun owners. the sonoma county board of supervisors meets about a state report that says the county alert systems were uncoordinated and inconsistent during the north bay wildfires last fall. the california office of emergency services released the report and says the county did reach out to 55,000 residents and connected with half that number. another system sent out thousands of texts and e-mails. but both programs require people to sign up in advance. >> we need to do much more. one of the things when we talked to the director of emergency services, we need to look at the opt out programs. >> at one point it wasn't clear who was in charge of issues alerts and evacuations. eleven recommendations were made, starting with updated
emergency plans and training for employees. the time is 5:07 and happening today, the funeral for the 19-year-old woman who was stabbed and left for dead earlier this month on a remote road near livermore. alameda county sheriff's deputies say lizette cuesta stayed alive long enough to tell them who stabbed her. she was friends with the man and woman who were arrested for her death. the funeral will be at oak hill memorial park. the service beginning at 1:00 this morning. wet and start weather continues to blanket much of northern california. we'll look at the current conditions. president trump is planning to come here to california. we have new information on what he plans to do here and whether he'll make a stop in the bay area. good morning. we see some crowded conditions on some of the roads. but for the most part we don't
have surprises as people come around the corn tore the macarthur maze and get on the bay bridge approach. the pattern is set up for what looks to be the first substantial rain in a long time. that will be tomorrow. we had a pretty good show yesterday. but that system with the thunderstorm activity and hail is now moving into southern california. so we'll get a little break today.
welcome back to mornings on 2. former president obama says social media is shaping our culture in powerful ways. the former president said that in boston at an m.i.t. conference and described it as a force for good but also a tool that can be used by isis or neo-nazis. the companies need to have a conversation that recognizes they are a public good as well as a commercial enterprise. the california supreme court rule that had prison sentences of 50 years or more for juvenile offenders not convicted of homicide are too harsh. the case before the course concerned two 16-year-old boys from san diego county who sexually assaulted two teenage girls in 2011. one was sentenced to 58 years to life in prison. and the other 50 years to life.
the court did not say how many years would be appropriate but sent the case back to be reconsidered. there are reports that president trump will come to california for the first time since he became president. he'll attend a fundraiser in los angeles for the republican national committee. and he wanted to see the eight border wall prototypes on display near san diego. there's no indication that the president will come here to the bay area. the president has canceled earlier planned trips to california and he has criticized california officials over sanctuary city policies. former california governor arnold schwarzenegger and john kasich will headline an event to announce a new group that wants to reform the california republican party. they'll take part in panels on march 21st for new way,
california. schwarzenegger is one of the last to win a statewide election in california. right now the registration of republicans in california has dropped to 26%. the former governor wants the republican party to choose policies to help them grow. the supreme court turned down a request by the trump administration to bypass a federal appeals court and get the high court to intervene in the daca program. >> the decision is seen as a blow to the trump administration while a relief for dreamers. it sends the case back to the ninth circuit court of appeals in san francisco. 20 states are suing to end the affordable care act. the lawsuit argues that the affordable care act is no longer constitutional since the individual mandate was
eliminated as part of the republican tax law. the supreme court has ruled twice that the law is constitutional. and almost 12 million people recently signed up under the affordable care act during the last enrollment period. let's help you get to where you need to go. at this hour, it's not too tricky. >> it's getting that way and this is the transition hour. we don't have a lot going on. you can see the traffic in general is getting a lot more crowded. northbound 101 if you're driving from gilroy to san jose at this hour. you'll see the traffic is light. and there's been a little bit of slowing here and there. but for the most part a nice looking commute all the way to the silicon valley. and there are people on the roads, but it's not slow yet. it's crowded though. at the bay bridge, the metering lights appear to have gone on just a little bit on the early side at least for the middle of
the commute here. it's not a big delay. it's about a five-minute delay before you make it through this and get on the bridge. let's bring in steve with the forecast. >> we'll get right to it. it will be calmer and a windy day. cold out and the rain has ended. and the thunderstorm activity and -- we got some rain. there's more on the way. this system, boy, i'll tell you. what's going on in europe -- remember the pattern is locked in. so trough, ridge, trough. guess who has the area of low pressure? we do. and that was impressive yesterday. parts of the east bay hat the most i've seen so far. i'm getting to all those. there was a lot to look at. and the snow and hail has moved south. gilroy, on the way to monterey, and towards southern california. and look at the system rotating
around. and this will call all sorts of issues. a quarter of an inch causes problems in l.a. 30s and 40s on the temps. santa rosa is 37. sunnyvale is also in there. the breeze is holding up many of the temps. i've seen gusts in napa county. tiburon, winds sore at 39. 42 bodega bay. eastern solano, contra costa county. clear to mostly sunny today. and tomorrow we'll increase the clouds and the system is going to be a deep cold system that sets up off the oregon, california coast and parks it there. and there'll be a series of
systems all the way to saturday. and the best rain producer since maybe january 8th of november 16th. and it's a huge deal for the sierra. and they'll measure snow in feet by the time we get to the weekend. mostly sunny, breezy to windy. we get a break today, good air quality. and cold with the breeze kicking in. and tomorrow we increase the clouds, and off and on rain thursday, friday, to saturday. >> all right, steve. you told us there was a change coming. >> in like a lion. time is 5:18. disney makes a big donation and the boys and girls club of oakland is cheering. what the money will be used for and what it had to do with the blockbuster movie black panther. and the big layoff for workers at levi's stadium.
i we worked with pg&eof to save energy because wenie. wanted to help the school. they would put these signs on the door to let the teacher know you didn't cut off the light. the teachers, they would call us the energy patrol. so they would be like, here they come, turn off your lights! those three young ladies were teaching the whole school about energy efficiency.
welcome back to mornings on 2. it's 5:21 this morning. the international energy agency predict it had united states will be the biggest producer of crude oil before the end of next year. and it may happen this year. production of shale oil is very strong and that will push the u.s. past russia in production levels. right now russia is the world's top crude oil producer. the rising production comes at a time when most other
countries are cutting back on the production to try to keep the price of crude oil high. macy's in san francisco is downsizing the space once again. macy's may sell the former i magnum building which has 240,000 square feet of retail space. and they are planning to convert street space into shops leased out to third party sellers. that would leave them with 700,000 square feet of retail space at union square. and they are closing down the stone town mall location. 750 jobs will be eliminated from levi's stadium in april when they switch concessions providers. the company center plate has lost the contract. and 759 people who work at levi's stadium will be laid off
april 15th. the 49ers are expected to make a recommendation on a new company to provide the services. it's official. driverless cars will soon be tested on california roads and for the first time a human will not be in the car behind the wheel. up until now, the cars could only be tested on public roads if a person could take over in an emergency. but new rules were approved. it's a big win for tesla and waymo who are leading the way with driverless car technology. manufacturers can apply for permits when the regulations take effect april 2nd. our question of the day is this? would you get into an autonomous car without a backup driver? yes? no? let's wait and see. tell us what you think. and you can comment on twitter
or facebook. the san francisco board of supervisors will -- the plan calls for $860 to apply for a permit to test a robotic device. and nearly $2000 to test 3 devices. if the board of supervisors approves the fees, a full vote march 13th. sam's is teaming up with inista cart. they'll receive special discounts on goods, and anybody can use the service. inta cart -- time is 5:24. would you pay money to blow off steam and just smash things to
pieces? well, you can do it now in las vegas. it's called the vegas wreck room. you walk in and put on a protective suit and face mask and pick out a tool to destroy them. and then you spend up to 30 minutes smashing lynx like beer bottles, porcelain lamps, and guitars. >> this is going to be a hit. >> it was scary at first, and you get in the rhythm and want to break everything. >> a half hour in that room costs 35 bucks. the owners say for some people it's just cutting loose your anger. for others, it's fun. >> i don't know. when i'm stressed i do other things. i bring it in and get calm. that's a little violent for me. but it's a good option. better to do it there than at yo house. construction is set to
begin at the golden gate on the suicide net. and some people are not happy about the immigration warning issued over the weekend by oakland mayor libby schaaf. one councilmember says it was a scare tactic aimed at ending a community into a false panic. if you're heading to the middle of the county, we'll tell you more straight ahead. it was a beauty. the cold upper low was over us, and now it's on its way to southern california. quiet today and the wind will pick up and more rain is on the way. more on that.

80 is not yet. getting to the carquinez bridge and driving over to the other side in crockett. this is a look at 880 in oakland. and you can see traffic is moving along very well in both directions. and at the bay bridge toll plaza, it's a little bit more of a backup. this is more like a 10 to 15 minute backup before you make it to the bridge. we've talked about unusual weather in the past 24 hours. we saw rainbows, hail, snow in parts of the bay area. leigh martinez -- >> reporter: i'm not playing in any snow but it's really cold last i looked, 36 degrees. mount diablo is 3600 feet. we're hearing some coyotes which is kind of scaring me. elsewhere in the bay area, we
