off in washington, d.c., but they will not be going to the white house. president trump never invited the warriors and the warriors probably would have turned it down anyway. they will spend the day in the city with local children, taking kids to the national museum of avalanche history and culture. the visit is usually scheduled during the trip to play the wizards the following season. congress is expected to address the age limit on rifles as california lawmakers consider a slew of new gun laws. we're getting a break from the rain today. but look at the snow early this morning in livermore. we will show you what happened early this morning. mornings on 2 continues. this is ktvu mornings on 2. >> welcome back to mornings on 2. it is 7:00 now, tuesday february 27th. i'm gasia mikaelian. >> and good morning.
i'm dave clark. let's find out more about your weather. steve paulson is right over here. >> i am indeed.
it will be nice today and then get ready tomorrow evening. into thursday. for those who work outside, i would make a plan b for probably thursday, friday and maybe even into saturday. we have a good day though for visibility and for air quality today. david cordova says mount diablo in the distance as seen from sfo. the visibility is sparkling, unlimited today. snow on many of the peaks. even around the hills of sunol. that was the system that brought the hail to sacramento and along the 680 corridor. mainly to the east. it was quite a show there. it has since moved off to central and southern california out of the picture but it will be a huge event for southern california today. a good line already went through l.a. palo alto, sunnyvale, upper
30s. half moon bay at 38. santa rosa is at 35. if you have the breeze, it is a
cold one. a lot of 33s. even union city is in there. now san carlos at 39. this is a big deal out to the valley. contra costa county, it has been kicking up its heels. it will be breezy to windy tomorrow. then the system will bring rain thursday night and heavy rain on top for thursday morning. 50s and 60s on your temps. sal, i'm seeing about 40 inches of snow up in the sierra by friday evening. >> that is good news for the snow pack. >> great news. >> my goodness. thank you, steve. >> you're welcome. >> let's take a look at what we have. we have a lot of slow traffic driving into the valley. a crash that is clearing right before 237, between there and dixon landing road. and the traffic is very slow. if this is your commute, it will be slower than normal. usually it is not this slow. as a result, a lot of people
are stuck in traffic this morning trying to get 880 at 237. southbound is definitely affected. let's talk about the rest of the south bay commute. getting slower driving into the valley, the west valley. 280, 58 and 101. on the peninsula, the 101 northbound is slow. there is a truck accident on northbound 101 as you drive through the area. northbound 101 at peninsula -- actually it is on the peninsula overcrossing to 101. that is a good area to avoid off of the traffic. we have pictures of the crash we will show you next time. 7:03. let's go back to the desk. the case in florida against nikolas cruz, the person accused of killing 27 people in parkland, florida will take place today. >> he waived his right to be in court today. so he will not be in court today. in a separate court matter, lawyers for cruz want to disqualify a judge on the case.
the defense says that judge is biased in favor of prosecutors. threatening the right to a fair trial. lawmakers in florida are expected to subpoena records from a number of local agencies that had interactions with cruz. a florida house committee is recommending a formal investigation into how school and law enforcement agencies responded to calls about cruz as well as how well law enforcement officers responded to the shooting at the high school that day. full subpoenas could be issued tomorrow. a spokesman for the national park center are working with students who want to hold a protest in washington, d.c., exactly one month after the shooting at their school. the students from marjory stoneman douglas high school were organizing a demonstration they call march for our lives. now, they asked for a permit to protest on the national mall on march 24th, but a movie production company already had a permit there for that date and time. the service is offering other options to the students but no final agreement has been
reached as of yet. nearly two weeks after the attack on that florida high school, congress will try again to raise the minimum age to buy rifles. but as doug luzader reports from washington, the path for new gun control laws will be very challenging. >> reporter: there's going to be a lot of talk around here today about gun control, especially the minimum age to purchase rifles. but raising that age is more likely to happen at the state level than the federal one. parents and students in florida prepare to travel to the state capitol. with pressure mounting, state lawmakers there moved forward on a proposal to raise the minimum age to purchase rifles from 18 to 21. similarly in congress today, a bipartisan plan to do the same thing at the federal level. >> the president says he supports that. so we ought to give that a vote, i'm sure. >> reporter: that will be an uphill battle to say the least. proposals for a ban on military
style rifles are coming up short. an agreement on a more limited approach, strengthening background checks seems to be the most likely course. >> beyond that, i don't know what they will be able to do. the standoffs have existed for a long time. the nra has been successful in blocking efforts in the past, after other shootings. >> reporter: but the president who was backed by the nra brushed those kinds of concerns aside. >> half of you are so afraid of the nra. there is nothing to be afraid of. if they're not with you, we have to fight them every once in a while. that's okay. >> reporter: still, fighting the nra is not easy and there will certainly be legal challenges should congress decide to raise the minimum age. in washington, doug luzader, fox news. california lawmakers are also taking action proposing ten new gun control bills. one would expand the definition of assault rifles. another would crack down on home made ghost guns and beef up gun tracing efforts. another would prevent people from being convicted of
domestic violence from owning a firearm. >> thoughts and prayers, that phrase has become an insult. it is up to all of us to lead. if the federal government is not going to lead, if other states will not lead, california needs to lead. representatives from gun owns of california say these proposals are attacking law abiding gun owners. the time is now 7:07. happening today, we will get an update from san francisco police about an officer- involved shooting earlier this month in golden park. the suspect on february 17th is accused of shooting two people and killing one of them. the man reportedly carjacked a toyota and drove to alameda street where police found him in an rv parked at a homeless camp. the suspect fired shots at police. the police fired back. eventually the suspect surrendered. tonight at 6:00, san francisco police will give an update on the investigation.
they will do that at the recology golden gate building on second street. the law enforcement training program held every year in the east bay is okay posed. officers come from around the world and go through intense s.w.a.t. simulations. opponents say the program teaches lethal militarized policing. there was a task force formed last year to make sure that urban shield does not target minorities, specifically avalanche and muslims. the san francisco bay ferry fleet may be expanding with smaller water-like taxis to help ease the traffic jams in the bay area. according to sf gate, the board of directors will vote on a plan on study that would include smaller ferries. they would fill gaps in service.
right now the ferry carries about 75 commuters between alameda, oakland, vallejo and san francisco. but in 2026, the water -- in 2016, the water authority increased the fleet from 12 ferries to 44 by the year 2025 and could add nine new terminals around the bay area. there may be confusion on the richmond san rafael bridge today. officials are testing out the overhead electronic signs out there. the drivers on the lower deck are being advised, ignore the green arrows and the red xs on the signs. they will be turning off and on intermittently for the next few weeks. now, the tests are to prepare for a new third eastbound traffic lane due to open in april. only the two left lanes will be open to traffic while the signs are still being tested. still ahead, a shake-up at lie vie stadium will have a direct impact on santa clara's
economy. is your job creating a problem for you at home. the job most likely to lead to marriage problems and then divorce. good morning. we are looking at the east bay commute. we do have a new problem on this very freeway just up the road that may turn that commute into a very slow one. we will have details straight ahead. the sun is out and you can see the snow on all of the baio owe well, most of the bay area peaks. mount diablo, down to mount hamilton. there may be more coming in before saturday. more on that coming up.
>> welcome back to mornings on 2. the richmond police department released these photos to see. two carjacking suspects are accused of trying to escape from police and crashed into a garage. a police officer was searching for a robbery suspect in the iron triangle neighborhood when he saw a dodge challenger that
was carjacked a couple of days ago. the officer called for backup. when the police moved in, the suspects drove away but crashed into a garage. they got out and ran but they were captured with the help of a police k-9. no one in the home was hurt in that crash. well, the california supreme court ruled that prison sentences of 50 years or more for juvenile offenders not convicted of a homicide are too tough. yesterday the case before the court concerned two 16-year-old boys from san diego county who sexually assaulted two teenage girls in 2011. one was sentenced 58 years to life. the other, 50 years to life. the court didn't say how many years would be an appropriate sentence but september the case back to be decided. servers, bartenders,
cashiers and fleet attendants. the company has lost the contract two provide the services to the stadium. that means the employees will be laid off on april 15th. today the 49ers are expected to make a recommendation to the santa clara county stadium authority on a new company to provide the services. sal is back still watching our commute. your hands have been full this morning. >> they have been. >> yes. >> although it is not as slow as yesterday. we've had more incidents this morning. we're going to start with the east shore freeway. i want to mention that west 80 at san pablo avenue, there is a crash just up the road. it is taking 31 minutes to drive from the carquinez bridge down to the bay bridge toll plaza. it might be a little longer now because of the new crash 80 westbound near san pablo dam road. traffic will be backing up in hercules. on the east bay commute, we've had traffic a little better than yesterday. nevertheless southbound 880 get not down to milpitas has been
slow because of an accident at 237 involving an overturned vehicle. it took a while to be cleared. traffic is solid from union city down into fremont and san jose. we're also looking at 85. look at all of the slow traffic from 85 getting into the west valley. 280 and 17 as well. northbound 101 is okay approaching burlingame. on pennsylvania avenue, there is an overturned truck that spilled diesel fuel. it will be there for a while on peninsula avenue. it is closed between airport and bayshore for a while until they get this truck out of the way. the pictures came to us from san mateo police department. this is a good area to avoid. san mateo traffic is going to be okay heading out to the highrise. 880 traffic is moderate. 7:15. let's bring in steve with today's chilly weather. >> that's correct. but it is dry until tomorrow night. then the rain will come in. boy will it ever come back in on thursday.
a great visibility day, air quality day. but the breeze will be around. for some it is windy. others it is breezy. i know nick's dad mike dell fin owe. i think you were right, snow on mount diablo. yes. and also on mount hamilton and sunol. great pictures coming in. it was a circulation within the circulation. boy, did that -- what happened is the southerly wind converged with northerly winds from redding. and you get the lift. that's what triggered the cold unstable air and a little bit of afternoon heating. did that fire up the afternoon thunderstorms? it sure did. that gave us the reports of the hail and the rain. i focused on the areas with the most rain. generally in the east bay to the south bay. mount diablo almost an inch of rain with the snow. along marsh creek road as well. clayton had .68.
that makes sense. milpitas, .60. danville, .56. allen rock, .54. there were others. around mills college there was good rain that came in. half an inch there. soquel, .48. fremont, .43. santa clara had .41. palo alto a third and brentwood had a third of an inch. the system is sliding fast towards southern california. they're already dealing with snow in san bernardino county. in the grapevine there might be issues. possibility of thunderstorm activity. anything down there usually causes problems. 30s and 40s on the temps there. upper 30s in san martine and gilroy. and cupertino, 39. saratoga is 37. with campbell at 38. a roaring breeze out to the delta. gusts up to 36 miles per hour. nice today. but then tomorrow the system will start to drop in. it rains wednesday night and
goes heavy thursday. and then it is parking itself, a cold deep low which will send a series of systems in friday and saturday. the best rain we have seen if not early january, november 16th. 50s and 60s on your temps. tomorrow, everything begins to fall off the table by the evening. then it turns rain and wind, gasia, on thursday. >> okay. you were mentioning the cold storms yesterday, steve. they brought snow to bay area peaks, including mount district attorney ab low. the snow stuck for wait a while into the morning. leigh martinez had made her way to the top of mount diablo. you have snow there just below 4,000 feet. >> reporter: yes. we started seeing snow at 2,000 feet. man, it is cold up here. the wind is a killer. it is freezing. anyway, take a look at the snow we have here. it is not good packing snow. i tried to make a snowman. it is not happening. it is powdery. on the ground, it is all ice. we actually got into a bit of a
jam. we tried to go up a little further. when we went around the turn there, it was all ice on the road. we can see a ranger is coming up here right now. so we got a little stuck. it took a while to shimmy out of it and get back down to this location. yes, there is still snow up here. not a whole lot of good packing snow. mostly dusty. here is the ranger coming up here right now. hi. we're live on the news. >> good morning. >> reporter: good morning. >> i've got to close the road. >> reporter: okay. do we have time to finish our live hit. >> yes. go ahead. >> reporter: thank you. quickly, guys. we have to get down the road here. elsewhere in the bay area, we have also snow on mount hamilton and san jose. mount hamilton is the tallest peak in the bay area. we have video from an overnight shots on mines road and livermore. the flurries coming down just before 2:00 a.m. this is just below 1500 feet.
and snow was sticking to trees and the ground. and there were very icy conditions reported at 2:00 a.m. use caution if you are out there on the rural roads this morning. circling back to contra costa county, this was mount diablo last night. we've had big swings in weather this month. at least the month ends with some moisture. >> it's great. but it is kind of -- i wish it happened on the weekend instead of when you have to work and drive in it. >> reporter: back here live we are on top of mount diablo. a ranger just came by and told they are closing the roads. we got into a bit of trouble around the corner there. it is a sheet of ice. i don't recommend coming up here. it is beautiful but very dangerous conditions. >> okay. leigh martinez is going to pack up and come back down mount diablo. it is 26 degrees according to
steve paulson with wind gusts at 66 miles per hour. leigh martinez is a hearty soul. a man is killed and the crime is captured on facebook live. more on the shooting and the developments in the recent minutes this morning. also, americans spend more times at their jobs than any other countries. where you will find the hardest working cities. several of them are right here in the bay area.
another man on facebook live has turned himself into north carolina police as of early this morning. the 55-year-old victim was walking down the street streaming live using a selfie stick. he reported a relative stealing one of his cell phones. he was going back home when he got into a confrontation who then shot and killed him. local news media says that he was shot while he may have been pointing out suspected drug dealers. facebook has removed the original post. he said this while speaking at an economic summit in india. he was swindled out at of 7 bit coins. that is worth about $75,000. he is a fan of the digital currency but there can still be fraud. someone bought them online using a credit card because it was a stolen credit card.
the time is 7:24. a new survey says there are a lot of busy bay area workers. according to wallet hub, san francisco ranks as number one as the hardest working city in america. fremont is number two. oakland, number six. san jose is number 11. the website gathered information from america's 116 largest cities. they looked at things like employment rate, the average weekly work hours, unused vacation time, and the percentage of workers with more than one job. a new report shows which job industries lead to the most divorces in young people. the san mateo based career company used at u.s. census data for divorce rates in people 30 years and younger. the first line in military supervisors had the highest divorce rate at 30%. experts say working in the military can create unique circumstances for couples.
automotive service technicians and mechanics were in third place. after weeks of bone dry conditions, some parts of the bay area actually got snow this morning. still to come, we will tell you where the snow was coming down and what to expect before yet another storm hits our region. plus, a flawed emergency response to the deadly north bay wildfires last october. coming up here, we will tell but a new report that was done by the state and how county officials will be responding to the findings.
>> 7:29. take a look at your screen. it looks quiet from here but mount diablo had a lot of activity, snow activity yesterday and into the morning hours. i hope were you with us minutes ago on mornings on 2. leigh martinez was asked by a park ranger to head bankruptcy down the mountain because the roads are not safe. snow that sticks to the ground. steve paulson was tell me it is 26 degrees with gusts of wind at 66 miles per hour at the the tippy top of mount diablo, 3800 above sea level. welcome back on this very chilly tuesday. we're thankful you're with us, february 27th. i'm gasia mikaelian. >> and good morning. i'm dave clark. let's go right to steve paulson. he will tell you more about
your weather. >> you remember the beginning of the month, record highs. >> that's right. >> first seven days. >> yes. >> now we have snow on the hills. i don't know how high up leigh martinez was when she did the live shot. suffice it to say she was a little cold there. ann elizabeth says frosty first light on mount diablo. yes, today you can see it from everywhere. if you're anywhere out in the east bay and even mount hamilton, around sunol. there has been good. mission peak as well. good morning. we had .31 of rain in pleasanton. heard one rumble of thunder around 5:00 p.m. last night. it was a good system. up by the concord pavilion, 39. 36 in orinda. san ramon is 38. brentwood at 39. and by knoll made it to 39. there's the system that dropped hail, especially out to sacramento. it has now pushed well into southern california and will
probably give them a wide variety of weather. it looks like it is missing santa barbara. that is good news, so far. 30s and 40s on the temps. there is a north wind that has kicked in. we will get a break today. and then that's the system coming in wednesday evening and thursday and off and on into friday and saturday. snowfall will be measured in feet in the mountains. so you might want to plan accordingly here. 50s to near 60 on the temps here. what are you looking at? >> i'm looking at me maps and i'm seeing slow traffic, steve. the east bay commute is where we're going to start this morning. i see slow traffic on eat eight and 4. but 880 is slow. this is unusual because we had a crash 880 at 237. and now traffic is basically one long solid line from hayward all the way down to milpitas. that's why 237, if you're on there, you're thinking where is
everybody. they're all stuck on agent eight this-- on 880 this morning. there's an overturned truck in san mateo on peninsula avenue near airport. peninsula avenue between airport and bayshore is going to be closed for the next few hours because of this truck. not only did it flip over, but there's all kinds of diesel fuel that is on the road that distracting traffic. it will make it tough to make it to the golf course. a 33-minute drive from the carquinez bridge to the macarthur maze. at 7:32. back to the desk. late they are morning, the sonoma county board of
supervisors is meeting on a state report but how the county responded to the wildfires. >> there are flaws in the system. that's why thousands of residents were never alerted about the emergency. alex savidge is in santa rosa right now. give us more details. >> reporter: well, dave and gasia, good morning to you. this state review found a flawed response by sonoma county officials as they were scrambling last october to warn people about these fast-moving fire that's were closing in. in the end, though, many people did not know what was coming until it was too late. >> flames started dropping out of the sky into our yards. and that's when i realized oh my god this thing is way closer than i thought it was. >> reporter: a new report from the california governor's office of emergency services finds sonoma county emergency staff did not do enough to issue evacuation orders to people in the path of those fires. the county did issue emergency
alerts to roughly 90,000 people through nixel. but many that were in danger did not get the warnings because they are opt-in programs. so they needed to have signed up for the program ahead of time. that was one flaw found by the report. there was also quite a bit of confusion and miscommunication. >> the people in sonoma county, the constituent, they deserve better. i would have like today have been woken up. understanding this is a gap system, that the tool is not perfect, that 70 cell towers burnt down that night means that no matter what tools were activated, it wouldn't have been perfect. >> reporter: and this state report is also critical of the decision by county officials during that disaster not to use what is called the wireless emergency alert system. that sends out alerts directly
to people's cell phones, whether they opted in or not. it is similar to the amber alert system. emergency officials during the fires were worried about that system, sending out an alert and potentially creating widespread panic. the board of supervisors here in sonoma county will be discussing the findings of this state review during their meeting, which gets underway an hour from now, here at the administration building in santa rosa. >> all right, alex savidge, in sonoma county. the 19-year-old woman who was left for dead after being stabond a remote road near livermore will be buried. lizette questions at that fought to stay alive long enough to tell investigators who stabbed her. she was friends with the man and woman who were later arrested for her death. the service starts at 11:00 this morning. our time is now 7:35. cal osha investigating the death yesterday of a landscaper
in south san jose who was electrocuted while trimming a tree. 34-year-old pablo gonzales had the day off from his regular job. he took a side job with another company and was 30 feet up trimming an oak tree at a house for sale. a tree he cut hit a power line and gonzales was electrocuted. his family in mexico is being notified to make funeral plans. >> he was a great guy. he was calm. he was nice to everybody. he was a really nice guy. he was funny. >> now, first responders had to wait for pg&e to turn the power off before they could remove his body. 953 customers lost electrical service for a few hours last night. oakland mayor's is being criticized. >> many decisions that i make
have risks and rewards. i do not regret sharing this information. >> the alameda county immigration legal and education partnership says it confirmed at least levis deportation arrests in the greater bay area region. the mayor's office has been flooded with phone calls from conservatives and liberals who wonder if mayor did the right thing. >> we have seen immigrant communities refraining from reporting crimes and keeping their kids out of school and refraining from going to the hospital when they need care. >> this is video here give tone ktvu by helen. it shows her husband being arrested at their home in napa on sunday. an ice spokesman says sanctuary cities and states are not immune to federal law. it takes about 94 days in santa clara county to process a sexual assault kit which contains evidence used in an
investigation after someone reports being a victim of rape or sexual assault. >> allie rasmus is live now to explain how one santa clara county leader is calling on the crime labs to speed that process up. >> reporter: yes. supervisor cindy chavez wants the santa clara county crime lab to process the kits within 30 days of receiving them. any time that someone reports being a victim of assault has to go through the kit. the nurse gathers the information and turn it's over to investigators. right now the crime lab has about 270 of the kits in the process of being tested. in some cases, the kits get processed within five days. usually in the more higher profile cases. but cases considered to be less urgent can take up to 94 days on average last year. chavez and representatives from victim support groups say it is
essential to process them quickly, not only to get justice for the victims but catch the offenders and make sure that they don't act again. one of the issues is cost. district attorney is told to report back to the board by march 20th to see what resources it needs to enact the policy and get through the backlog. 94 days is the average time right now in santa clara county to process a sexual assault kit that. is an improvement to three years ago when it use today take 600 days in santa clara county to process the kits. but the supervisor says the goal should be 30 days or less. and that's what she is going to be recommending to the board of supervisors later this morning. back to you. >> allie, thank you. a push to prevent gun violence here in the bay area. at 8:00, we will tell you what is happening in santa clara county in hopes of keeping children safe. health care benefits just got better for local tech workers. what apple is doing for its employees starting this spring. well, today's commute is
better than yesterday. we still have slowing on the east shore freeway. that is one area that is a little slow, especially in richmond heading out to the macarthur maze. well, the sun is out. air quality is good. visibility is fantastic. it will be a nice day. chilly with a breeze. but tomorrow will start to usher in more rain. it could be really heavy by thursday.
the year before. that's a 57% increase. the most since 1994. it is also the biggest single year increase since the group started collecting that information in 1979. the antidefamation league's ceo says the increase appears to be fueled by emboilened far right extremists and by the divide of the state of discourse. the clinics will be called ac wellness. apple says there will be two in santa clara county for apple employees and their families. the current job listings for apple includes jobs for doctors, health coaches, as well aztec nations to do blood lab tests on-site. the clinics are expected to open this spring. on thursday, the san francisco board of supervisors will vote to set the permit fees for robot delivery testing on public sidewalks in the
city. right now companies pay $860 to apply for a perrity in to test one device. more than $1,500 to test two. and the three is the maximum number allowed. if the board of supervisors approves the fees on thursday, a full board vote will happen march 13th. the time is 7:44. ready or not, it is official. driverless cars will soon be tested on california roads. for the first time, a human won't be in the car behind the wheel. >> up until now it could only be tested on public roads if a person could take the wheel in an emergency. now they can be put on the roads without drives. it is considered a big win for those with driverless car technology. they can apply for permits once the regulations go into effect april 2nd. the question of the day is, would you get into a car
without a back-up driver? yes, no, or i will wait and see. let's take a look at the numbers. 20% of you say yep, you're up for a ride. 56% say, more than half say no thank you. 24% are in the wait and see group. >> i'm going to wait and see if you do it. >> i'm going to wait and see if you would do it. sal would do it. would you? >> yeah. especially like an uber type situation where i have to get home and, you know, driving is not safe for me so i'm going to get into the driverless car. >> okay. >> all right. less risky. just my opinion there. we will see if that happens. we will take a look at the commute now. 80 westbound vacaville, there's a crash involving a truck westbound 80 at dixon avenue. and also a crash eastbound 80 in the same area. so please give yourself extra time. as we get closer to the middle core of the bay area, slowing on 880 southbound into fremont.
we had earlier problems getting out to 237. it is now filled. in the people that were stuck in this traffic made it to 237. this is a look at the valley. all of the valleys are clear now. if you're trying to figure out what is the best time to go, right now is not the best time. this is a look at northbound 101. we had the truck accident on the freeway -- off of the freeway on the peninsula avenue overcrossing. i would use 280 instead heading up. let me show you the truck accident we're talking about. overturned truck spilled diesel fuel on peninsula avenue between airport and bayshore. that will be closed for several hours as they do the clean-up. as you can see it is causing slow traffic on the freeway below. 80 westbound we mentioned it, it will be slow between the carquinez bridge and the mac maze. let's bring in steve with
today's forecast. >> can we get serious. >> yes, sir. >> people may be heading up to the mountains. i can't emphasize enough there are projections of four to six feet between wednesday night and saturday. four to six feet. >> right. >> and even down to about colfax, there's a possibility of a foot of snow and ten inches at placerville. if you're planning to go up to the mountains, good luck. >> bring the changes if you have to go. i wouldn't go during those days. if you have to go, bring the chains. you will need them. >> 100%. i mean, both the european and gfs paint a big-time snow event up there. something that we haven't seen in a long time here. at least this year for sure. the thunderstorm activity yesterday was front and center, especially over sacramento. that was hail. that was not snow in sacramento. that was hail. there was snow on the peaks. snow made it down to 2,000 feet. numerous reports of hail and thunderstorm activity from napa county, lake county, contra costa, santa clara.
they took the bulk of it. the precip was okay. not too bad. mount diablo with almost an inch of rain. anybody in and near clayton and blackhawk and danville had anywhere from half an inch to two-thirds of an inch of rain. allen rock, .54. near mills college, there was good rain. up in the oakland hills not bad. .51 there. soquel, .47. a lot of hail reports in and around livermore as well. fremont, .43. bay point, .39. palo alto a third. and brentwood a third. it's gone now. the system moved off. maybe partly cloudies. but the bulk is heading down to southern california. their ocean temps are warmer than ours by far. that there l. create big-time instability. you can see that line forming between l.a. and san diego. that could cause big-time issues down there. dave will tell you if they get
a quarter inch of rain, they're on storm watch. >> lose their minds. >> 30s and 40s on the temps. if it wasn't for the breeze, napa would be colder. that's a big factor. point reyes at 39. windsor at 37. there is the wind, northwest at napa. davis up to 30 miles per hour. 7 in truckee. 26 ukiah. cold up there. 7 around truckee. 12 incline village. same for heavenly. homewood is at 19. norton is at 10. our system is on the way for tomorrow evening and thursday. then it will park itself right about here as it digs in and send in bands. the bands will continue to work their way in over the weekend. probably even into saturday night. i think by sunday, it will slowly kick out. you're looking at two ask a quarter in redding. that's feet of snow.
okay. so just be advised. 50s and 60s on the temps. north wind should help santa rosa get to 64. they will be one of the warmest. rain moves in wednesday evening. heavy rain on tap for thursday. off and on rain friday and saturday. colder. >> wow. wow. wow. thank you, steve. the time is 7:50. going to the doctor is never fun. but one doctor wants to change that. coming up at 8:00, how he is using humor to calm his patients down. and we are starting to see how companies are spending that wind fall they're getting from president trump's tax reform bill. why many employees won't see their paychecks change at all.
>> welcome back to mornings on 2. this week work is expected to start on the suicide net for the golden gate bridge. according to the marin independent journal, the steel needed to hold the net in place is due to be cut in oregon. now, since the bridge board unanimously agreed on a contract to build the barrier in december of 2016, a lot of the work has been taking place off site. but the crews will start working at the golden gate bridge by the middle of this year. officials say the net will be gray, not red. it will blend in with the water. they hope to have it finished by january of 2021. the first only fully automated parking garage is
open in san francisco. it is at 24th and broadway. this is how it works. you drive in and lock your car. then the garage lifts your vehicle up to an empty stall. you don't have to worry about scratches, dents or car break- ins because only the technicians are allowed to go into the structure. the garage has room for 39 cars and it is 7 stories tall but built on just 1600 square feet. a tradition lot with the ramps and turns would need ten times that space. >> it reduces the footprint for space by as much as 80%. because land values have come up so much and there is so much growth coming into cities, that has made a big change in terms of the need for this. >> the oakland based company says the parking garage is also environmentally friendly, saying the amount of greenhouse gas emissions drop because cars are not idling or looking for parking spots. prices are competitive with neighboring garages. the time is 7:54. now we're learning how many
companies are spending the wind fall they receive with the corporate tax rut included in trump's tax plan. companies are using much of the money to buy back their own shares. the buy backs are good for shareholders, including top executive who's are usually big owners of the stocks. a company buying back its own shares usually increases its stock price. president trump promised the tax cut would invest in workers and wages but they're not required to do that much the time says the buy backs will add to the economic inequality in the company because the richest 10% of american households own 84% of all stocks. santa clara county is expanding the areas that are required to have baby changing tables. county supervisors will meet on march 8th to discuss a proposed ordinance affects parts of the county. it would require baby changing

be going to the white house to meet the president. president trump never invited the warriors and they probably would have turned it down anyway. they will spend the day in the city with local children. they will be taking kids to the avalanche museum of history and culture. boy, it is cold out there and you could be waking up to see snow this morning. up next, how yesterday's storm left a dusting of snow that remains on a number of bay area mountain tops. the florida deputy criticized for being a coward on the day of the deadly parkland shooting is now fighting back. i'm in parkland, florida with the details coming up.

following the massacre. the shooting ignited a nationwide debate over gun control. on monday the committee approved a bill that would raise the age to purchase a firearm from 18 to 21 in florida and allow teachers to carry guns in school. however they did not agree to an amendment to ban assault weapons outright. the florida house is considering a similar bill today. meanwhile columbine survivors are applauding the efforts of the students fighting for tighter gun laws. >> speak up. be loud. don't let us forget us adults forget that we are responsible for this. >> reporter: stoneman douglas high school students are scheduled to return tomorrow back to the classrooms, exactly two weeks since the shooting happened. in parkland florida, ktvu fox 2 news. there are ten new gun control bills here in california. one would ban the assault rifle. another would crack down on

>> photos here from the richmond police department show what happened when two carjacking suspects tried to run from police. they ended up crashing into the garage of a home. a police officer was searching for a robbery suspect in richmond's iron triangle neighborhood when he saw a dodge challenger involved in a carjacking a few days ago. he called for backup and the suspects drove off and crashed into the garage nearby. we're told that he ran from the scene but were caught by a police k-9. no one in the home was hurt in the crash. >> many decisions that i make have risks and rewards. i do not regret sharing this information. >> the alameda county immigration legal and education partnership says it confirmed

a blow to the trump administration and relief for daca recipients and their supporters. they say the supreme court's decision buys them time to push congress for a solution. >> i felt really good about the court ruling because i think it gives us a little more time to do advocacy to try to identify more permanent solution. >> it buys us about a year of time now. again, if we can keep buying time, eventually we might buy enough time for political change to come. >> the supreme court's announcement kicks the case back to the ninth circuit court of appeals in san francisco. president trump could be coming to california for the first time since he become president. he will attend a fundraiser in los angeles. the president also wants to see the eight border wall prototypes on display in san diego. no indications that he will stop here in the bay area. he has canceled planned trips
to california and criticized officials over immigration policies. let's look at the commute. sal. >> i want to alert you to something that may be causing some confusion on the richmond- san rafael bridge today. as officials are testing out the overhead electronic signs. drivers are being told to ignore the green arrows and red xs. the testing is to prepare for a new third lane that is scheduled to open in april. just a little while from now. only the two left lanes will be open to traffic while the signs are still being tested. again, don't pay too much attention to those today. and watch out for someone who may be confused. let's go to live pictures. 80 westbound driving from the carquinez bridge to the mazement you can see traffic will be moderate. they cleared an accident at carlson. things are improving. san francisco, this looks much
better than yesterday. 101 northbound and southbound. northbound is slow from 280 to cesar chavez. you can see on the left it clears up by the time that you reach the 80 split. this is a look at 80 in oakland. traffic is on. we had a truck accident near airport and bayshore. it is causing slow traffic on 101. traffic in the east bay is also slow. 8:17. let's bring in steve with today's weather. >> thank you kindly, my friend. >> you're welcome. >> it had will be a sunny, mostly sunny, breezy, windy day. temperatures 50s and 60s. after yesterday which was good for us. sacramento and parts of the north bay, east bay and south bay. not so much to the peninsula and areas to the north. i know you had rain, but the thunderstorm activity and the hail is mainly out to the east. that has since pushed south. not before we had okay rain. not bad. there's a lot more on the way
for sure. mount diablo had an inch of rain. that is a good day for them. clayton, .68. danville, .56. and castro valley had just over a half inch of rain as well. generally a half -- third to a half for some. after that, a quarter to a third for locations. the system is a circulation within a circulation that triggered the thunderstorm activity. look how that on shore push, you get that very cold pool of air. their water is warmer than us. that will trigger thunderstorm activity down there. 30s and 40s. we're warming off of the lows for the morning. still pretty cool. north at 12. northwest. northwest. north at half moon bay. northwest at palo alto. not strong out there but it is out the delta. 7 up in truckee. 19 in reno. it was 26 in ukiah.
now it is 30. 43 in monterey. our system is into southern california. our eyes are focused on the next system coming in next evening. it looks like late wednesday and for sure thursday with a series of systems coming in around the low friday and into saturday. there will be not only rain but a lot of snow. could be three to six feet of snow after everything is said and done here. 50s and 60s on the temps. snow level could get down to 2,000 feet. not just the passes, this will be one of the best we have seen in a long time. in fact -- i can't remember. somebody from the weather channel tweeted the national weather service in reno and said when is the last time that you've had a setup like this. i'm waiting for the reply. we had snow but not down to 2,000 feet like that. >> let's talk about sea level. there will not be a maverick surf contest off of half moon bay this year. because of a delay in the
permitting process, this year's window opened january 1st. you might remember there were some days we came close. in january, sufferers were put on alert for the 72-hour notice. the forecast didn't show the waves would continue. february of course is usually a good month for big waves but not this year. the window next year will open october 15th. contest organizers are confident mavericks will happen next time around. going to the doctor for me is not a fun moment. but one doctor is trying to change that. how he is using humor to actually calm down his patients.

>> 8:30. boy, we had weeks and weeks of dry warm weather. but now the bay area has been hit with the first major storm we have seen in about a month. let's take you all over starting with snow on bay mountain peaks. you see mount hamilton on the right. also hail in sacramento. so much hail it looked like snow. that's the bottom right. and then over on the side there, people skiing and snowboarding and making their way to and from the grocery store amid lots of snow in the sierra. a lot of people want to know if it will stick around. i'm gasia mikaelian. >> good morning. i'm mike mibach. let get you the answers and bring in steve paul ryan. >> it was quite a show in sack yesterday. for them. that much hail. >> it does look like snow. >> there might have been a little grapple mixed in with that. you might get a little snow out of that. >> okay. >> it was mainly hail though.
mainly hail. i promise not to quiz you or anything like that. it is clear out there for many. jake says the clouds and rain from yesterday are gone. clear but chilly with a temp of 39. a cold breeze in rohnert park. now 41 in rohnert park. 33 in hills hillsberg and occidental. tonight will probably be very cold. that was the system yesterday. that's what gave all of the reports of hail. that system has now pushed into central and southern california. you can see the on shore push. there will be some -- i think already there is snow on locations on the high dezer. even san bernardino mountains. l.a. and san bernardino could have an active day. 40s on most of the temps. most of the locations are getting out of the 40s. a robust, fresh, if you will, north wind out to the delta. our system tomorrow will be in here late afternoon and
evening. and it looks like heavy rain thursday morning. a lot of snow as we go into friday and saturday. 50s and 60s on the temps. a lot of snow on the sierra. should make that clear. sal. >> steve, we keep watching the east shore freeway. >> yeah. we had a crash. it cleared. but it still slowed traffic down. however it will be slow driving from richmond to this point at the macarthur maze. 35 minutes from the carquinez bridge to the maze. and here at the bay bridge toll plaza you add another 20. it is not as bad as yesterday when the same drive could have taken an hour and a half because of the rain. today it is dry in san francisco. that's much better. and the traffic here is okay. and in oakland it is also okay on northbound 880. it slows approaching 66 getting up to hyde street. this is the picture of the overturned truck in san mateo that is taking up -- it is blocking peninsula avenue between bayshore and airport. it's been out there for most of
the morning. and they're cleaning it up. traffic on nearby 101 has been very slow because some of the associated ramps are closed. it is backed up out of belmont driving up to burlingame. i would strongly suggest using 280 northbound instead of 101. some people are doing that. it will be slow. but it is better than 101. 8:33. let's go back to the desk. >> thank you, sal. supervisors are meeting in sonoma county to discuss the response to the wildfires in october. >> the analysis found significant short comings in the system that prevented tens of thousands of people being alerted about the emergency. alex savidge is up in santa rosa to explain more on what went wrong, alex. >> reporter: good morning to you. the state review found confusion and miscommunication on the part of sonoma county officials as they were scrambling to warn people about the fast-moving fire that's were quickly closing in. in the end, many people did not know what was coming until it
was too late. and dozens of people lost their lives in the fires last october. now, a new report from the california governor's office of emergency services is finding that sonoma county emergency staff members simply did not do enough to issue evacuation orders to people in the path of those fires. the county did issue emergency alerts to roughly 90,000 people through two different channels. socelmany didn't get the warnings because they were opt- in programs that you need to sign up for ahead of time. >> when we talked to the director of emergency services we decided we need to look at the opt out of programs rather than the opt in programs. if you alert correctly, you can't overalert. >> reporter: this state report also is critical of the
decision by county officials not to use what is called the wireless emergency alert system. that sends out alerts to people's cell phones directly. similar to an amber alert. emergency officials were worried about using the system and potentially creating widespread panic during the fires. the state report recommends a number of changes to the county's emergency response plan, including a new alert policy and county supervisors say some of those changes have already been implemented and new training methods are already in the works as well. and the county board of supervisors has just began their meeting this morning and they will be discussing the findings of this new state report during today's meeting. mike and gasia. >> all right. alex, live in sonoma county. thank you. >> we will be getting an update from san francisco police on an officer involved shooting that happened earlier this month after a deadly shooting in golden gate park the. suspects are accused of killing
one person. they carjacked a car and drove to alameda and found the suspect in an rv parked at a homeless camp. eventually the suspect surrendered. san francisco police are to give an update on the investigation at 6:00 tonight at the golden gate building on 7th street. also happening today, protesters will gather at the alameda county board of supervisors meeting to talk about urban shield and protest against it. it is a law enforcement training program held every day in the east bay. officers come from around the world and come through intense s.w.a.t. simulations. it teaches officers different methods of policing. opponents say the program teaches lethal mill tar eyed policing. supervisors formed a task force to make sure that urban shield doesn't target minorities. >> a south bay supervisor wants to clear a backlog of rape kits. she says the crime lab has to process the kits more likely to
do it. allie rasmus is live from san jose with the story. >> reporter: yes. chavez wants the county crime labs to process the sexual assault kits within 30 days of receiving them. any time that anyone reports being a victim of a sexual assault or rape, they have to go through a physical exam at a medical facility with a sexual assault nurse. the evidence gathered in the exam is then packaging to as part of a kit and handed over to investigators for their investigation. now, right now the santa clara county crime lab has 270 of the kits in the process of being tested. according to a county study on the issue, about 20 of the kits are processed within five days, fairly quickly. on average, it can take much longer than that. about 94 days it took to process one of those kits last year. now, chavez and representatives from victim support groups say it is essential to process the
