your morning commute. students across the country and in the bay area preparing to take part in a massive walkout tomorrow against gun violence, calling on lawmakers to take action. we will explain why some local school districts are warning students about leaving class. we continue to follow breaking news from washington. rex tillerson is out as secretary of state. this and much more as mornings on 2 continues. this is ktvu mornings on 2. >> 7:00 and another big storm is making its way across the bay area. the large left side picture is a live look at storm tracker 2 with an awful lot of green on it. on the right is sfo. the airport is on a ground delay because of rain. you can see the wet pavement there. there are average delays of just over one hour. there are 33 canceled flights because of the weather here and
also bad weather on the east coast. the advice of check before you go goes double for today. i'm gasia mikaelian. >> and i'm frank mallicoat in for dave clark. you got in about an hour ago, is it pretty wet out there? the. >> barest of sprinkles. i think i was okay. >> it is going to come. let's check in with the weather man. >> yes. two good lines coming up, stretching from north to south and the santa cruz mountains, so far seems to be one of the areas picking up the most rain. coming down good in newark. yes, it is. you're going to be saying that a lot between now and friday. next system will be thursday and into friday and probably lingering saturday, with a break saturday and sunday. but there are hint that's next week could be wet as well. maybe more towards southern california but that is next week. this will be a morning event and then the rain comes in.
one initial band is moving off to the east county. and into marin county from petaluma back to novato, decent cells showing up on radar. right back over lafayette, orinda, oakland hills and back over to sfo, san mateo, you can see how the line is lifting back towards the city now. also in the santa clara valley east of morgan hill. but into the santa cruz mountains and santa cruz proper and the bill low itself will send in a wide variety of active weather. 50s and 60s. this will be the warmest we will be for a while. windy at times. we will get sun breaks later as the front goes through. it looks like a good week for rain. even better for snow once we get started. that won't be until 1:00 p.m. today when the winter storm warning continues today. that is down to 3500 feet by
the time we get to friday, if not lower. for some, it is raining. others, it is not. but the traffic is wet for just about everyone. >> that is true. your windshield wipers need to be on and your headlights have to be on. that is california state law. you can be cited if you don't have your lights on as you're running your windshield wipers. this will be more than the normal drive. usually we have a 30-minute drive. so about 15 minutes. this is a look at highway 4. backed up to antioch. that is slow as well. the key is that everything is slower. the crashes have been coming in. they are been fender benders off to the side. that kind of thing. people are not driving fast enough anymore for there to be serious accidents on most freeways because look how slow everyone is going. there is no real room to get
into a serious crash. westbound bay bridge backed up for another 40-minute delay. today won't be a good driving today. commute that's are usually light are going to be slow. and in the south bay, we do have slow traffic getting into that west valley. so the traffic is feel willing the effects of the rain across the bay area. and that includes of course the bay bridge. that's where leigh martinez is live right now at the toll plaza. good morning, leigh. >> reporter: good morning. it actually is not as bad as it was in the last hour. i almost thought of taking the hood off here but it is probably safer if i keep it on. the rain is coming down just lighter. as you said, westbound lanes are pretty backed up. the carpool lanes are going by fine. if you take a look at some of the cars that are in that slow traffic, their windshield wipers are not going as fast. just periodically. that shows you that rain is
coming down lighter. we have video from earlier. that rain was coming down much heavier. i noticed and my photographer noticed it as well, it felt like much bigger rain drops coming down. we did have more wind activity. so we definitely had more of a stronger band in the last hour. it has lightened up at least over here at the bay bridge toll plaza. again, it is coming down light. as you come back out here live, you can take a look at the slow traffic that is coming down here going westbound. again, everyone has their lights on, as you mentioned. it is still dark out here. as sal mentioned, you should have your lights on if you have your windshield wipers on. everyone in the slower traffic has them on periodically going across the road. so we still have rain coming down but lighter than it was in the last hour. >> wipers on, hoodie up. well done. leigh martinez out there for
us. this morning, president trump has replaced rex tillerson as the secretary of state. the president made the announcement this morning saying he will nominate mike pompeo to take over as the secretary of state. an aide to tillerson says that tillerson was asked to step aside on friday and he returned back from a trip early. tomorrow will mark one month since 17 people were shot and killed at stoneman douglas high school in parkland, florida. tomorrow will also be the first coordinated national demonstration in support of gun control. organizers of the women's march are calling for students and staff to walk out of their classrooms at 10:00 tomorrow morning for 17 minutes. one minute for each of the people killed in the florida school shooting. students across the country are expected to participate. and as they are going to participate, many here in the bay area are making plans to be
part of that nationwide school walkout. >> while some school districts are supporting the action, others are not. ktvu's alex savidge joins us live in milpitas where district leaders are issuing a warning to their students. alex. >> reporter: well, good morning. the superintendent here at the milpitas unified school district trying to discourage her students from leaving class tomorrow to take part in this walkout against gun violence, saying that students will be given an excused absence and could face other consequences as well. jordan said in a statement, leaving campus during school hours to participate in political activity is not a safe and responsible way to work for change and she is not condoning students taking part in tomorrow's nationwide walkout where protesters are calling on lawmakers to pass stricter gun control laws after the massacre in florida.
students who walk out tomorrow will not be disciplined but they will have to complete the work they miss during the unexcused absence. while some school districts are clearly discouraging students from leaving campus tomorrow, many districts are actually supporting tomorrow's actions and making accommodations to make sure that students who leave campus are safe. students are planning to walk out of class at 10:00 tomorrow morning at a number of schools all across the bay area and across the country. >> thank you, alex. straight to our question of the day. we've been asking you, should students be disciplined for walking out tomorrow. 25% of you say yes. 75% of you say no. keep letting us know what you think by voting on ktvu.com and twitter and leave comments on facebook. up next, what it reveals so searches by the san francisco police department. president trump talks border security in his first
trip to california today. i'm doug luzader in washington. we will have more on the reception that he is likely to face coming up. it seems to be settling down a little bit, only because traffic is a lot slower. we do have crashes. but now it seems like we're filled into this pattern of slow traffic. well, it is coming down really hard for some. as the rain rates pick up, it will be a morning rain event and then the colder unstable air will come back in this afternoon.
>> the time is 7:11. if you're heading out the door, don't forget to grab an umbrella. you see storm tracker 2. lots of green showing the rain as another storm is making its way across the bay area. things are beginning to ramp up. if you think this is it for the day, it's not. on the right side is a picture right outside our front door, if you will, across jack london
square in oakland. streets are slick. i'm happy to see the cars with their headlights on and i'm sure that the windshield wiper ares going. it is a busy morning. glad you're with us. >> president trump is heading to california for his first visit since taking the oval office. this is him boarding air force one a little while ago. doug luzader has more. >> reporter: this is a big trip for the president. the administration is battling california in court. right now tensions are boiling over. this is part of the welcome president trump can look forward to in california. protesters, including illegal immigrants and elected officials who don't want him there today. >> he's not welcome. >> trump is not welcome here. he would be welcome as our president if he stopped his
racism. if he stopped bidding people once and for all against each. >> reporter: his purpose for the trip, to see the prototypes of the border wall. immigration was his most prominent campaign issue and the white house sees this as an important visit. >> the president campaigned on this. talked about it extensively. and he is the president. this is something that he is not going to back away from. >> reporter: but the animosity between the state and the president is crystal clear. the justice department is suing california over new law that's are to thwart immigration. ongoing clash that will get an intense focus today. this trip isn't just about immigration though. the president will meet with u.s. marines in california and he will attend a fundraiser in los angeles. in washington, doug luzader, fox news. warriors head coach steve kerr joined two bay area
congressmen on a town hall about gun violence last night. the students directed most of their questions to coach kerr whose life was changed because of a tragedy. >> for the first time in my life, i feel like there's a movement happening. i truly believe that. i have never felt this way before. but i feel it. but it only happens if the momentum continues. >> kerr's father was president of the american university of beirut when he was shot and killed by terrorists in '84. congressmen also spoke with the high schoolers. they say that students hold more power than they realize to influence the work of lawmakers. rain falling near milpitas high school. roads are wet. keep this in mind if you're getting your little one off to school. all of those many things that
we do on any given day. when it is raining, it makes it harder and slower. build in extra time if you can. >> if you have to go to work, listen sal because the roads are clogged up. >> that's right. now that it is getting lighter, i want to let you know that you need to have the headlights on day or night when the windshield wipers are going. you could be cited if you're not doing that. it makes it easier for others to see you. this is a look from the carquinez bridge to the macarthur maze. a lot of it is backing up getting to the actual macarthur maze. and then the clock starts again. when you get to the bay bridge, you will see more waiting there. another 30 minutes at the toll plaza. you can see all of the east bay freeways are slower than usual. the only i guess if you want to look at the hidden blessing of the slow traffic is fewer people are getting into serious crashes because everyone is going so slow. we talked about the toll plaza.
this itself is a 40-minute delay before you even get -- so getting there does not count as part of that delay time. this is 880 oakland. both directions okay. and the san mateo and the dumbarton bridges have been slow. on the peninsula, highway 101 is slow. 280 has been recovering from earlier accidents in daly city and south city. 7:16. let's bring in steve with today's forecast. >> sal, you're going to need lots of rest this week because we're going to. ♪[music] ♪ let it rain ♪ >> let it rain, baby. >> okay. >> we need it. we're getting it. we will get it all the way into friday. thank you for that. we do have pretty good rain coming down right now. there's going to be mountain snow. it will take a while before the cold air gets to the mountains. the winter storm warning does not kick in until 1:00. then the snow level will take a tumble over the next few days. rain and wind for the morning. then turning showery, cooler and colder into tuesday evening and wednesday. next system comes in thursday

have seen so far. felton over an inch of rain. russian river, almost an inch of a rain. hillsberg, three quarters. clearlake a third. fremont a quarter. that has probably gone up in the last 20 minutes or so. ben loma, inch and two thirds. geyserville zeroing in on an inch of rain. pacifica, three quarters. menlo park, a half. san jose state meteorology department just shy of mav an inch of rain. san francisco, .04. oakland area has a quarter of an inch. alameda as well. the cold low will make its presence felt later today. right now it is the front. 50s and 60s. you get a good breeze ahead of that. 20 to 30 miles per hour. then we get a few sun breaks. it won't last long. the cold unstable air will generate a lot of lift. we are painted by the way for general area of thunderstorms by the storm prediction center.
after that, here comes the colder air. this verifies we will measure snow in feet by the time we get to the weekend. 50s and 60s on the temps. after today, you will notice a change. much colder off and on rain takes us into the end of the week. >> thank you, steve. a big pledge by sales force founder. the contribution that he is giving to an up coming antigun violence march.

280. traffic is slow. headlines are on as they should be when your wipers are going. keep this in mind as you make your way around town today. time now is 7:43. the spokesman for the ice office in san francisco has stepped down, resigned. james schwab says it is because of misleading statements made by the top ranking officials of the trump administration. schwab says jeff sessions and others false claimed that 800 undocumented immigrants escaped arrest because of mayor schaaf's warning in advance. schwab says he personally feels that mayor schaaf's warnings were misguided but the information provided to the public was false. the lawsuit filed against the trump administration on behalf of immigrants and their u.s. born children. it was filed on behalf of nine
immigrants and five of their children who are u.s. citizens. it comes after the trump administration declared an end to temporary protected status for more than 400,000 immigrants from el salvador, nicaragua, haiti that are allowed to stay in the united states because of armed conflicts in their native countries. >> the central problem that we have identified is nobody in the administration thought there are 100,000 american children, many of whom are school age are facing a horrible chase as a result of the administration's decision. >> the lawsuit says that violates the children's constitutional rights to due process and equal protection. a new berkeley police review commission report says that african-american and latino drivers are stopped and searched more often than white drivers. the report also says that african-americans are six times more likely to experience the use of force. the report points out three key indicators of racial

a 60-minute drive time, 59 minutes, an hour drive i'm here you can see taking to get where it normally takes 30 minutes at this time. and then you add another 30 or 40 here, getting into san francisco. now, there is reason for optimism because as steve has been saying, there will be a break later on and the rain may not be as heavy for the afternoon commute. i will leave it to the man to explain that. this is a look at 880 northbound. and you can see traffic is slow. now, steve, this afternoon, it's not going to be as bad as this morning. correct? >> that is correct. but there will still be rain around. >> got it. >> not heavy rain but hit and miss. >> got it. >> get ready for this to last most of the week. fog has settled in. we have a ways to go. it will be a morning event and then the colder air comes in. morning rain, wind, colder air. next system on thursday afternoon and evening. that will take us into friday. and maybe even linger into saturday morning.
this morning is for us all about us and rain. the sierra will be tonight and over the next couple of days. as the cold air takes a while to get there. winter storm warning does not kick in until 1:00 p.m. an inch and a quarter and a mild 52 in middle town. do you want to call it a miracle march? i don't think we're there yet. but if everything comes in as it is showing over the next seven to ten days, yes. compared to february, absolutely. we're on the right track. let's put it that way. i like what i'm seeing going forward. bands of moderate to heavy rain. it is sweeping in. there is a ways to go before we get to the back edge. for the morning, probably sold out here. if it is not rain, it will be cloudy, foggy. good rain totals to the north. already picking up again some of the rain as the system slides in from the southwest and starts to drift northeast. but some of the rain can be steady in this kind of a pattern. you see it in the russian river. it keeps going and going. santa rosa has had -- sonoma
county airport has had good rain. also out to contra costa county, we've had band that's have rotated through that are moderate to heavy from moraga back over to emryville, oakland, san leandro, berkeley. on the pence larks a general rain but it looks steady. highway 1, there may be a break in some of the clouds. the santa cruz mountains, it is really picking up. that's where some of the totals are at the highest. temperatures continue to be on the mild side for the next couple of days. in fact what what we're looking at -- what we're looking at is a very low snow level. and my computer is stuck. there we go. thank you. thank you. redwood estates almost an inch and a half. felton over an inch of rain. cazadero, over an inch. kent field almost two-thirds. clearlake a third. orinda has now picked up a third of an inch. there is the source of our possible miracle march maker. at least part of it. as this system sends in a lot of bands of rain and eventually
cold air with mountain snow is on the way. very robust certificately breeze will be with us throughout the morning once the front goes through. there is a back else but it will take a long time to get there. then another series of these systems. it looks good for the mountains for the weekend. should get a break for the weekend. and then next monday and tuesday, another system coming in. might favor central and southern california but too far away. 50s and 60s on the temps. frank, i know you're going to love the snow by the time we can clear it out of here but that won't be for a while. >> i've already had my ski trip for the year. how about golf? not so good this week. >> yeah. heavy stuff isn't coming down yet. >> well, we need it. >> got it. >> thank you, steve. 7:49 is the time. the fate of hundreds of future families hang in the balance after a malfunction at the pacific fertility center in san francisco. we will explore what steps are being taken after thousands of
>> welcome back to mornings on 2. there's green on the screen. that usually means we're in the midst of a storm. yellows in there as well. intense over the bay area right now. we will get an update on that. to your right you can see the bay bridge kind of socked in. so is san francisco. so as coop would say, slow your roll if you're heading out the door today. well, hundreds of hopeful
parents are waiting for word on the fate of their future family after learning that thousands of frozen eggs and embryos may have been damaged in san francisco. joining us now is fox medical team dr. mike. thank you so much for joining us. it is a heart breaking topic to talk about. but what are we learning first of all from this as far as this happening? it happened also across the country from us. mechanical failure, human error. how likely is this to happen again? >> well, pam, as i teach medical students at the university of pennsylvania where i'm at, the bottom line, medicine can be the most wonderful thing in the world but it cans also have life and death consequences. this is one of the tragedies where, one, we have to find out exactly what happened. now, it is one of two things, pam. it is either mechanical failure or human error or a combination. and just like with a plane crash, we need to investigate
exactly what happened and make sure that it never ever happens again. one of the ways to do that is to build in redundancy. redundancy is already there. but something led to a breakdown in not just one but two different locations. >> and can the clinics be held accountable? what recourse do these families have? for some of the women that might have been their only viable eggs are now gone. >> well, look, there's the legal option. and i'm sure that that will be taking place. unfortunately that doesn't solve the problem. now, in speaking with several of our fertility experts where i'm at, number one, it's never 100% that you're going to be successful. on a good day. but what their recommendations are would be to go ahead and go
forward because, one, it will be very hard to know which embryos, which eggs, which tissue was damaged by a higher temperature. and so it is very possible that things may work out. but, look, the legal system will come in and take a hard look at this. but that -- that aside, what we can't do is change the past. what we can do is work on the future so that this never ever happens again. that is all we can do to remedy this. my heartfelt concerns and prayers go out to family. i have two children at home and believe me, i feel the pain. >> do you think the families -- there are families suing in cleveland. not sure about here in the bay area. is that a lawsuit that would be allowed to go forward? i mean, as a doctor, have you seen this having legs in court?
>> well, i'm not a lawyer. and luckily knock on wood, i don't spend much time in courtrooms. but my understanding is that families sign contracts. and the contracts in some cases -- again, i'm not an expert in this -- will stipulate that things can go wrong. it is not 100%. what i would do if i were a family that was affected by this, i would seek legal counsel to get the best advice. but there are issues in terms of contractual agreements and things and all of that. as a practicing physician, i worry about people. that's, pam, what i'm worried about. these are families that have suffered a loss. but maybe not. and so my advice to them, if you're out there listening, one, is to talk to your fertility expert. see how they would proceed.
and be strong and go forward. that's all we can do. >> yeah. >> in life. that's all we have. >> right. and we know these fertility clinics are really caring about the families. we know they're going to work on trying to make sure this never happens again as well. dr. mike from our fox medical team, thank you so much for joining us on that. go back to frank and gasia. >> pam, you're wonderful. and love san francisco. love it. >> thank you, dr. mike. 7:57. we're following breaking news in washington. what we're learning about the departure of secretary of state rex tillerson. and the wet weather is not making for an easy drive at all. as we take a live look at san rafael, central san rafael. it is raining and traffic is slow from novato. and the doctor of rape is making a house call this morning for most of the bay area. good totals so far. and we're just getting started.

pacifica, three quarters. san jose state meteorology department almost half an inch of rain. san francisco, .04. alameda, shy of a third of an inch. there is a ways to go. moderate to heavy rain. the bands have gone through other areas but they're picking up. sliding south to north. it looks like calistoga and st. helena may be getting good rain there. but right there, back towards american canyon, over into sonoma county, napa county, right back into highway 80 corridor. and now there was good rain coming in across el cerrito, san pablo, over to orinda and lafayette and the 680 corridor. and then a general rain takes us into the peninsula and also the santa cruz mountains really beginning to pick up along highway 9,/17. the source will be this parent low which will send in first the front and then the colder unstable air. 50s and 60s. i don't think the lows have
changed at all. a blustery day when the cold air arrives. then get ready for possible thunderstorm activity. this low is not going anywhere until at least friday. 50s and 60s on the temps. 8:03. do we have any good news or is it just bogged down. >> it is not as bad as it was earlier. >> good. >> steve. but we still have a loot of issues out there. we do have rain coming in marin and novato and san rafael. you can see the freeway down there. driving into marin via the richmond bridge, you will see slow traffic here. and the windshield wipers are going. make sure that the headlights are on when the wipers are on. that's the state law. this is a look at the commute on westbound approach to the macarthur maze. it seems like it let up a little bit. as i look at the list of chp, we've had easily three times as many incidents as on a normal morning. a lot of them are just fender benders that end up getting moved to the shoulder. sometimes they do block lanes for a bit.
just be careful. move is hydroplaning and fishtailing out of control. this is a look at westbound 24. traffic is going to be slow as you drive through the lafayette area. and 880 is slow as well as you drive through. you can see traffic is a little bit better. san mateo and dumbarton bridges are slow. as the weather moves through, you will have to slow down. look at the maps here. there is a lot of red on the maps. commuters are feeling the effects of rain across the area. and that includes the bay bridge where leigh martinez is right now. leigh. >> reporter: yeah. we're getting lucky because i'm not feeling the rain right now. i'm going to take the hood off right now. i can see a lot better. it doesn't appear to be raining at the bay bridge toll plaza right now. if you look at the commute here, we have the carpool lanes doing perfectly fine. we do have a very slow crawl coming off of the ramp on the other lanes here. it doesn't look like everyone is using their windshield
wipers. the roads are still really wet. take is slow. the heaviest rain was earlier this morning. we have video from the 6:00 hour much that's when we saw -- i would still call it moderate rain but coming down much heavier. we have the bigger size rain drop it's felt like coming down. and we had a lot more wind. in the 7:00 hour, it definitely lightened up for us. again, we still had rain but it was pretty light. and everyone who was driving, their windshield wipers were going on periodically. if you come out here live, we have a little bit more wind. the darker clouds are over on the east bay it appears. lighter going into san francisco. if you look at the sky. but, yeah, at the moment, it doesn't feel like it is raining. so i think we're pretty lucky here if you're coming into the toll plaza right now. >> leigh martinez, thank you. following breaking news out of washington from the white house that president trump has replaced rex tillerson as secretary of state. the president made at announcement this morning
saying he will nominate cia director mike pompeii to take over as secretary of state. this came hours after tillerson returned from washington from a trip to africa that he cut short. the president has not explained the reason that tillerson was fired and tillerson want today stay on the job. this morning as he was leaving the white house, the president talked about his reasons for replacing tillerson. >> rex and i have been talking about this for a long time. we got along actually quite well. but we disagreed on things. when you look at the iran deal. i think it is terrible. i guess he thought it was okay. i wanted to either break it or do something and he felt a little bit differently. so we were not really thinking the same. >> the president said he wishes tillerson well and believes tillerson will be much happier now. right now president trump is on air force one flying to california for his first trip
to the state since taking office. doug luzader has more on the president's visit. >> reporter: this is a big trip for the president. his administration is battling california in court. so right now tensions are boiling over. this is part of the welcome that president trump can look forward to in california. protesters, including illegal immigrants and elected officials who don't want him there today. >> he's not welcome. [cheering and applause] >> trump is not welcome here. he would be welcome -- he would be welcome as our president if he stopped his racism. if he stopped bidding people once and for all against each other. >> reporter: but the real draw for the president is this: prototypes for his proposed border wall. 30-foot-tall sections that he will see firsthand today. immigration was his first prominent campaign issue and the white house sees this as an important visit. >> the president campaigned on this. talked about it extensively. he is the president.
this is something that he is not going to back away from. >> reporter: but the animosity between the state and the president are clear. that coupled with sanctuary city policies have put the golden state and white house at logger heads, something that will get an intense focus today. this trip is not only about immigration. he will meet with u.s. marines in california and attend a fundraiser in los angeles. doug luzader, fox news. the time is 8:08. ann coulter will be in the bay area tonight. the reason that mountain view police say they are increasing the number of officers at the event. students across the country and here in the bay area planning to take part in a massive walkout tomorrow protesting gun violence and calling on lawmakers to take action. we will explain though why some local school districts are warning students about leaving class.
take a look at your screen. the big story of rain is morning. you can see a lot of green on storm tracker 2. that means that rain is in your neighborhood. that is the green. yellow is heavier rain. we're seeing both. over on the right, the smaller picture through fog and rain, trust me it is the airport. at sfo, they are experiencing dozens of delays. the advice is the same. call and check with your specific airline, what is happening with your specific flight before you head out to the airport this morning. president trump appears to be backtracking on his initial support for a key element in a gun control measure. ers easing off his call to raise the age to 21. he says the issue should be left up to the states. the president says he still supports improved background checks and allowing some teachers to carry concealed weapons. the white house says said that the department led by betty devos will study how to protect schools. president trump has completely caved to the gun lobby.
she added to no one's surprise the president's words of stricter gun laws prove to be hollow. 17 people were killed in parkland, florida one month ago tomorrow. tomorrow will mark the first coordinated national demonstration in support of gun control. organizers are calling for students and staff to walk out of their classrooms at 10:00 in the morning tomorrow for 17 minutes. one minute for each person killed in the florida shooting. students across the country are expected to participate. including many students here in the bay area. and while some school districts are supporting the action, others are not. >> ktvu's alex savidge is in milpitas where district leaders are issuing a warning to students. >> reporter: the superintendent of the milpitas unified school district is warning students who leave class tomorrow for this walk-out that they will be given an unexcused absence and they could potentially face other consequences. superintendent cheryl jordan
said in a statement, leaving campus during school hours to participate in political activity is not a and a responsible way to work for change. she will not condone students taking part in this nationwide wake-out as protesters call on lawmakers to pass stricter gun control measures following last year's massacre at a florida high school. in san ramon, district officials sent out a statement telling students who walk out that they will not be disciplined but they will have to complete the work they miss during this unexcused absence. while some school districts clearly are discouraging students from leaving campus for this demonstration tomorrow, many bay area districts are in fact supporting this action and making accommodations for students who do choose to walk out of class. students are planning to take part in this walk-out at 10:00 tomorrow morning. they will be leaving class for 17 minutes. that's one minute for each of the people killed at the florida high school one month ago.
in milpitas, alex savidge, ktvu fox 2 news. our question of the day, is should students be disciplined for participating in planned walk-outs tomorrow. 24 percent say yes. 76% say no. erica says absolutely not. they're protesting to protect life itself. >> another twitter user says i support them walking out but i understand the need to have some repercussions. it gives the choice more weight, that they would still do it despite the punishment. still they are choosing to skip school. i don't think it is worthy of an overly harsh punishment though. we will keep this question up throughout the morning. let us know what you think by voting on twitter and comment on facebook. the time is 8:15. steve kerr joined two bay area congressmen for a town hall on gun violence. the students directed most questions to coach kerr whose life was changed due to gun
violence in a personal tragedy. his father was shot and killed by terrorists in 1984 when kerr was just 18 years old. coach kerr says he hopes the deadly school shooting in florida last month has dramatically changed the gun control debate. >> for the first time in my life, i feel like there's a movement happening. i truly believe that. i've never felt this way before. but i feel it. but it only happens if the momentum continues. >> congressman and thompson also spoke to the high schoolers as did coach kerr. the congressmen explained that the students hold more power than they realize to influence the work of lawmakers. the time is 8:16. let's check in with sal and a look at the roadways on this wet tuesday morning. >> i would recommend if you could to use bart or public transportation because driving today is not optimal. it is getting a little better now that it is daylight and people can see better and there have been fewer serious
crashes. when you get to the bay bridge, you will be waiting there for another 40 minutes or so. getting on to the span. if you want to take bart, bart has some minor delays, ten minute delays. they had a train that was malfunctioning. somebody was arrested at one of the stations. that caused minor delays. it is also wet. but still 10-minute delays, not too bad considering what the roads are like. this is lafayette. this will be slow getting up to orinda. 880 is very slow driving. as steve has been saying, it may be wet this afternoon. although it won't be as bad. it will still be wet. san mateo bridge and dumbarton bridge is slow. you have a lot of traffic to deal with. minor crash that's have turned into more of like a headache. i see a lot, steve, as people are driving too fast. something happens and then they have to hit the brakes. and in wet weather, your car could fishtail or hydroplane.
>> hydroplane. >> yes. >> when the pavement is dry, sal, i admit, i drive fast. when it is raining, i'm like this. >> slow it down. >> thank you, sal. morning rain and wind. and this afternoon, it will turn more showery in nature but also colder. a lot of fog coming in as the system slides through. the wind has tamed off for some but still there for others. the rain is steady, steady as she goes. it is beginning to stack up here. i will show you totals in a second. scattered showers. possible thunder showers and lowering snow levels heading into tonight and wednesday. looks like thursday afternoon, evening, into friday, the next system. that might linger into saturday. then there is a hint of other system. that may favor central and southern california next week. but that is next week. our good friend marty, good morning, steve. good morning to you. refreshing rain in awesome lacksberg -- harksberg is up to

cerrito, emryville, berkeley, also on the 680 corridor, danville, san ramon to dublin, that intense moderate rain there. over to oakland and alameda. you can see some of that picking up as well. stretches over the bay bridge. then for the santa cruz mountains and santa cruz, watch in the last few. that's why they're getting so much. when that band comes in from the west/southwest, you take the moisture and boy do they get rain. that's why the santa cruz mountains will be way up there on the rain. our system is not going anywhere any time soon but the cold air is. there is a good breeze. watch for maybe a few sun breaks later. now the cold air comes in. that will get the lower snow levels and keep the beat going all the way to friday. this looks like a good setup for us. 50s and 60s on the temps. for the sierra, winter storm warning starts at 1:00 p.m. snow level will be quite high. by the time we get to thursday and friday, it may be down to 3500 feet. >> thank you, steve. a new report surrounding the berkeley police department

now released graphic body camera video of a deadly officer-involved shooting that happened in the city's mission district one week ago. investigators say ten officers fired a total of 99 shots and the suspect who police say was armed was hit more than 20 times. this video and information were released during a contentious town hall meeting last night. police say the gunfire came after a standoff after delgado hid inside the trunk of a parked car that matched the description of a car used in an armed robbery. many at the meeting were angry and shouting at police after watching the video. >> you should be ashamed of your officers. bad training. look at that. how terrible could you be. it is disgusting to our community that you are here
from l.a. >> police say they found the suspect's gun in the trunk of the car. they also say body camera video and a witness showed delgado fired that gun before officers started firing. they also say you can hear someone speaking in spanish to the suspect on cell phone video from the witness. the police chief william scott was at the meeting. he told the crowd the investigation into the shooting is still in the preliminary phase. he also said he regrets any time that there is a loss of human life. a new berkeley police review commission report says african-american and latino drivers are stopped more than white drivers. it also says that african- americans are six times more likely to experience use of force. the report says racial disparities were calculated using three indicators. they include the number of pedestrian and traffic stops, the number of searches after the stops, and the percent of people from each racial group arrested or cited after being stopped. the berkeley city council is scheduled to discuss the report at their meeting tonight. four home invasion robbery
>> 8:29. it is a rainy tuesday morning, just as steve said it would be. here we have live storm tracker 2. green is rain. yellow is intense rain. we're seeing both of those blanketing the bay area. on the right we see a picture of sfo. a handful of delays here. 39 canceled flights right now. 62 delays. this is because of weather we're seeing in the bay area, which is bad for us. but certainly on the east coast, i think the third big storm in a week and a half is hitting there. it is a busy morning. thanks for being with us. i'm gasia mikaelian. >> i'm mike mibach. even with the delays, it makes me want to get on a plane and
head off to arizona for spring training. >> i knew there was something. >> that sounds good. >> sometimes you have to work. >> sometimes we have to work. but it is actually clouding up down there. they've had some 80 degree weather. but it looks like a lot of cloud cover and cooler if you're heading down towards phoenix, scottsdale or mesa. it is a gray, rainy day at sfo for sure. for most of the bay area. the system came in as advertised. took a while to get here. after yesterday's sunshine and warm temps, morning rain. it is raining cats and dogs and kittens and puppies. there you go. i believe she is in the richmond district. fog so thick that you can't -- okay. i'll feed you. very well done. derrick, was that you? very well done. we have rainfall coming in. orinda, a third of an inch. glenn helen, a half of an inch. windsor approaching an inch of rain. felton over an inch of rain.
redwood estates over an inch and a half. santa cruz mountains, some locations over two inches of rain. the system will continue to drag across. napa was late to the party. it is here now. the rain is picking up for them. look at this line from walnut creek back to ordain and berkeley. sal will have more on that. from sanville to san ramon and back down to dublin as well. then we find a good band fremont over to sunnyvale and the peninsula and into cupertino and right back into the santa cruz mountains and also santa cruz. that is setting up the stage for a very rainy day for them and heavy totals. the system will slowly drag across. then the cold air filters in this afternoon. the breeze continues. look at that out of the south. gusts to 35, 40, some of the higher elevations. this will be the pattern off and on all week, maybe into friday and saturday. snow will be on the go. mainly rain or wind up there
right now. the cold air has not arrived but the pattern looks good for rain and snow for the next seven days. 8:32. hello, sal. >> hello, steve. i'm looking at this rain that you're talking about and it is an effect on the commute. it has been slow all morning long, trying to get to the tunnel. at the bay bridge, not raining it he moment. it looks like it has stopped. but traffic will be slow approaching the bridge. you also see slow traffic. so the rain is just basically making it slower. already slow on a normal day. san mateo and dumbarton bridge commutes are slow as well. 101, 380. check out 101 for example. if you're driving to san francisco, 101 is backed up all the way from san mateo. there is not one break in the action. look at this.
all the way up into san francisco. that is one long commute. and it is to be expected in this weather. but i just don't want you to be surprised. at 8:33, let's go back to the desk. >> thank you, sal. we're following breaking news out of white house. president trump has fired rex tillerson. the president said he will nominate cia director mike pompeii to take over as seth of state. the announcement came hours after tillerson returned to washington from a trip to africa that he cut short. an aide to tillerson says the president has not explained the reason that tillerson was fired and that tillerson want today stay on the job. the spokesman for the ice office in san francisco has resigned. james schwab says the decision is tied to false and misleading statements made by top ranking officials of the trump administration. he says jeff sessions and others falsely claimed that 800 undocumented immigrants escaped arrest because of oakland mayor libby schaaf's warning to the public about the four-day
operation in advance. schwab says he feels that the actions were miss guided but that the information that was provided to the public was false. ice released a statement in response to james schwab's comments and resignation. the spokesperson says, quote, even one criminal alien on the street can put public safety at risk. and as director holmes stated, it clearly had an impact. while we disagree with some schwab on this issue, we appreciate his career. >> i commend mr. schwab from speaking the truth while under intense pressure to lie. vice president mike pence is the latest member of the trump administration to criticism mayor schaaf of warning people in advance of the raid. >> all of us who take the oath
of office to serve at every level take an oath to the constitution of the united states and for state officials to the constitution of that state to have an elected mayor in oakland, california say they're not going to uphold the laws of the united states of america. >> president trump and attorney general jeff sessions have also criticized oakland's mayor. mayor schaaf has defended her actions by saying she is committed to make sure that people know their rights. just into the news room, president trump
on his way to california to visit prototypes of the border wall said, quote, california's sink tree policies are illegal and unconstitutional and put the safety and security of our entire nation at risk. thousands of dangerous and violent criminal aliens are released as a result of sanctuary policies set free to prey on innocent americans. this must stop, end quote. this is brand-new from the president.
