donald trump's presidential campaign used that information to build profiles on voters. the data breach has led to a backlash. some users even deleting their facebook accounts. others are sticking with facebook, but they're using the site more carefully. >> i think it's a really good for people to be aware that these apps are sourcing all your information. and using it. in different ways. >> reporter: and now facebook is also facing some new questions after it was revealed the company has been collecting information on phone calls and text messages made by users with android devices who use the facebook messenger app. however, facebook says that it did not collect the content of any of those calls or text messages and only took data from users who had opted in. now law macers of course right -- makers of course right now are focused in on facebook's privacy practices and it is possible that congress could

slowdowns. san mateo and dunbarton bridges are also okay. southbound 680 this morning is off to a slow start. as is southbound 880 as you drive into fremont. you can sew some slowing approaching stevenson where there was a crash here on the shoulder. 7:15. let's bring steve in. thank you sir. >> you're welcome. >> all right good morning everybody. happy monday. happy cold monday out there under mostly clear skies. little breeze out of the west- northwest. so it will be a cool chilly morning. that will be a layer day because by this afternoon, now the birds are singing. very nice. nice -- but it's cold. they are probably bundmented up a little bit this morning here because they have temperatures in the 30s for many. and taking a look stacey ross says good morning -- good morning rs. hey a brisk 39 there. feels colder but i'm glad it's not. are we done with the rain? no. there will be april showers. might be something clipping the sierra. lots of 30s and one observation now shows 36. 30s aplenty in the santa cruz mountains and a few around
saratoga. santa clara is close at 30 degrees but the pattern changing. it will be warmer this week. 60s today but then maybe about add ten to these by about wednesday and thursday. the last part of the system or the pattern went in yesterday. and is now moved off towards nevada and points east and inner mountains regions. cool air settled and the breeze picked up and a difference in the pressure gradients. by tomorrow that will relax little bit and could be a few high clouds from the northwest but overall still mostly sunny. now going to check after three weeks of rain and snow and we made up a lot of ground but still only 65% of average since october 1st for the water year and 65 for santa rosa and oakland 66 and san jose they also ran only 53%. always not far away. there's a lot more than that. so the snow though was incredible for three weeks we made up tremendous ground. this is the snow water equivalent. 18.5 inches of water in the central sierra. that's 65% of normal and 44% for the northern and southern
and 57%. to statewide summary 56%. that's i'd say almost miracle to be honest with you. the windchill though. susanville. 17. 34 auburn and placerville and 34 yucaipa. it's a cool one out of the breeze picking up out of the northwest but 40s around the bay. and 30s for many. still we're slow to recover here but we will and that northerly or northwesterly breeze will be in place most of the day. 7 now up in truckee and teens around lake tahoe with a few single digits. i mean that's a cold, cold morning. but they will recover more so tomorrow than today. today is the in-between day. although lots of sunshine. everything looked developmentment no issues this -- good though. no issues this week for rain. late saturday and sunday there might be a system clipping northeastern california and the sierra. we'll watch that for you. 60s on the temperatures and temperatures near average for this time of year. they will continue to bump up this might be the coast day of the week. -- coolest day of the week. warmer weather which you want is on the way. >> bring it.

cold here. it will be a northerly or northwesterly breeze and overall though tomorrow will be the day we really start to warm things up. the cool and rain is getting out of the picture and it will be breezy and sunny to mostly sunny. and then warmer temps will take us into tuesday and especially wednesday. thursday. highs today in the mid 60s. sal tells us -- well things are okay today is much better than it was last week for example. when we had rainy conditions. looking at the east shore freeway. starting there. it's taking about a half hour to drive from the carquinez bridge to the mcarthur maze. a little bit more than that and there's some congestion. but if you compare to last week i think you'll like this commute. same for highway 24. certainly it is a little bit slow here and there. but it's better than it was last week. bay bridge is about the same though. it's backed up for about a 20 minute delay. as you get onto the bridge it could be a little breezy i'm just looking at the flags over there. could be a little breezy on the span. 880 northbound, this doesn't look too bad. just yet. as you drive past oracle arena

week when it was raining. so i think you are going to have a nicer commute. 37 minutes, this is a nice crowded commute albeit much better than the 62 minutes i saw last week at this time and it was raining hard. remember that? well, it is slow. when you get to the bay bridge you will see slow traffic and highway 24 is slow. b.a.r.t. has been quiet. some minor delays but nothing major right now. bay bridge backed up for 20 minute delay. what a difference the weather makes. obviously. it's a little breezy out there. and if you drive the small car or maybe a high-profile vehicle you should be careful on causeways can bridges, this is a look now at -- and bridges, this is a look now at the south bay commute filling in especially on 85 and 280 and 101 and you can tell a little spring break out there. i know that some -- i just kind of made up that phrase. but it does look just a little bit lightener some schools maybe be -- lighter and some schools may be out this week and maybe next week. 7:45. steve? all right sal right to it here. we had activity all the way
into the weekend yesterday and then things kimmed out of here -- kicked out of here. the sunday showers deliveredsome rainbow weather and sunday showers delivered this rainbow in petaluma. thanks to john who sent that to my friend gary who then forwarded it to me. that's how it got there. go back 18 hours and right there you can see the activity not too bad coming out of the north and east bay. go back right there and you can see that shower activity and pretty good rain there around american canyon. also over into concord and parts of the east bay but that's the last of it. there's the weekend system as it churns out of the picture. and it is now under the intermountain region and out of the picture and we are on the drier side. there it goes give that system credit. not a lot but it's out of here. left behind though is some cold air. i mean there's a lot of 20s and 30s and teens up in the mountains. 30s around here. even out to the valley. so it will be a cold start here. and we're slow to recover but eventually we will. and there is a northerly breeze coming in out of the locke cleveland berkeley hills or the
east bay -- berkeley east bay hills. north right above the oakland zoo. it is a northerly breeze but the rain pattern ends and a warmer pattern kicks in this week. today will be that transition day. but there's still plenty of 30s around. fromont livermore -- fremont and livermore and napa airport is at 34 and the it wasn't for the breeze -- if it wasn't for the breeze santa rosa could be cooler than that. menlo park and woodside and palo alto and there's fremont at 37-degrees and pacifica a cool 43. with 40 in san mateo. san carlos at 41. northerly wind or a westerly, a northwesterly breeze 7 up in truckee. 26 reno and 34 up in yucaipa. it will be sunny and breezy and the cool air is in place. but a breezy mostly sunny day today but then temperatures they start going up. tuesday and wednesday. by midweek will be in the mid 70s. 60s today and low mid and i think there's too much cold air in place but if the day is longer it doesn't take long to bump things up a little bit.
