cities this morning. this afternoon partly cloudy, and we have more details coming up in just a bit. let's check the roadways. good morning. we are hopefully going to see a lighter than usual monday morning commute but we have some problems including here, northbound 101 south of 280. two vehicles involved in a crash, blocking one lane there. we are continuing to get information on the crash at northbound 680 at diablo road. all lanes are open now after this crash with injuries was reported. south bay looking good, no major issues to tell you about. traffic is pretty empty at the bay bridge toll plaza as well. back to the desk. police are looking for two

hasn't yet sent the articles of impeachment to the senate, saying she wants assurances that there will be a fair trial. >> i think what speaker pelosi is trying to do here is gain leverage as the proceedings move forward. the problem with that is iowa is voting and democrats have to worry about how impeachment will affect those running there. >> and president trump and the gop are expected to rally republicans and independent voters. nashville police have expanded the investigation into the killing of of clayton bethard. police are looking for 23-year- old michael mosely, who may have been at the bar when the

upset victory. and the sharks lost a third game in a row. no score until late in the second, when the golden knights got their goal. the sharks have lost nine of their last ten and are off until friday, when they will host the kings. nobody likes to work the monday before the big holiday. >> well, i agree. >> but overall things are good. there are still people going to work and maybe getting that early shopping done. let's start with the maps. there was a crash westbound 80
and a stall at westbound 80 in the richmond area. your drive from the carquinez bridge just 18 minutes to get to 80. highway 4 is looking good but quite a bit of traffic there, drivers still heading out this morning: it's not completely empty like it probably will be in a couple days. a little slowing on 580 but no major problems. the golden gate bridge is not empty either, but things are looking pretty good out there. good day to be heading out. but with all that moisture and cold temperatures, we have a little fog. >> that's true. >> so be prepared for coming across the fog this morning.

on something as important as an impeachment. >> reporter: the house voted to impeach the president last week but the articles of impeachment have not been sent to the senate. senate republicans say it is the senate's job to pass the articles. last year they discussed how a trial could be conducted. president trump wrote on sunday: >> you know, i don't know exactly how this will go down. i know that we have a constitutional duty to take on this very important case. >> reporter: lawmakers from both parties say they believe a

northbound 101 heading up to that wreck. highway 24 in lafayette is moving at the limit but it's not empty, still a little crowded. this is where you'll see particularly empty roadways this time of day in a regular workweek but many people are off for christmas this week. let's turn it over to rosemary because the sun is peeking up over the hills there. we are dry and that dry air around clear skies overnight helping to cool things off. a look at san francisco there, you can see the top edge of the screen there with a little daylight glow on the horizon. sfo is reporting mainly dry and good conditions there, no visibility problems at the moment and no delays reported.

there's my career... my cause... and creating my dream home. i'm a work in progress. so much goes into who i am. hiv medicine is one part of it. prescription dovato is for adults who are starting hiv-1 treatment and who aren't resistant to either of the medicines dolutegravir or lamivudine. dovato has 2 medicines in 1 pill to help you reach and then stay undetectable. so your hiv can be controlled with fewer medicines while taking dovato. you can take dovato anytime of day with food or without. don't take dovato if you're allergic to any of its ingredients or if you take dofetilide. if you have hepatitis b, it can change during treatment with dovato and become harder to treat. your hepatitis b may get worse or become life-threatening if you stop taking dovato. so do not stop dovato without talking to your doctor.
serious side effects can occur, including allergic reactions, liver problems, and liver failure. life-threatening side effects include lactic acid buildup and severe liver problems. if you have a rash and other symptoms of an allergic reaction, stop taking dovato and get medical help right away. tell your doctor if you have kidney or liver problems, including hepatitis b or c. don't use dovato if you plan to become pregnant or during the first 12 weeks of pregnancy since one of its ingredients may harm your unborn baby. your doctor should do a pregnancy test before starting dovato. use effective birth control while taking dovato. the most common side effects are headache, diarrhea, nausea, trouble sleeping, and tiredness. so much goes into who i am and hope to be. ask your doctor if starting hiv treatment with dovato is right for you.
time, get a tree and bring it home for the holidays. it's not christmas without a christmas tree. >> yesterday dozens of people were treated to free trees as well. an early christmas gift as a church paid off millions of dollars in medical debt. >> we are canceling all the unpaid medical debt, $5.3 million, as a christmas gift to all the poor. >> the christian assembly church paid bills and cleared medical debt for more than 5500 households in the area. they purchased the debt from creditors for $50,000. families will receive a letter in the mail saying all their debt has been paid off. gas prices are down 4 cents a gallon at $2.55 on average.
but prices are as always higher in california. san francisco has the highest in the bay area with and average of $3.68. if you're planning on traveling today or tomorrow, give yourself plenty of extra time. most people will be driving and the worst traffic is expected the day after christmas. nearly 7 million are expected to fly, up from last year and the most we have seen since 2003. >> stuck in traffic, people all around, then you can't find a
spot to sit while you're waiting. >> airline officials recommend getting to the airport at least two hours before your flight and travel with gifts unwrapped so they can be expected. if you wrap them, you'll have to open them up. there are chain controls on several highways right now unless you have four-wheel drive. even those drivers should carry chains too just to be safe. and over advice for people on their way to the mountains for the holidays? >> i do a lot of driving up and down the mountain, but i didn't think i needed it. >> make sure you have extra blankets, flashlights, all the safety stuff. >> take your time and enjoy the beautiful scenery. >> and it's suggested to check

and you can see it looks like a work truck or utility truck. we are told it was a head-on collision at this intersection in san ramon, just a couple lanes open so drivers can get through the area. police are saying both lanes won't be reopened until at least 7:30 a.m. because of the injury crash there. and we'll show you the drive on westbound 580, a report of a hazard in the roadway at grant's law road. and 880 in oakland, northbound and southbound traffic looking good. we'll have more in about ten minutes on the bay bridge toll plaza. now over to rosemary for a look at the weather. we are dry today and the story this morning is how cold
we are with that dry air in place and the fog that's developed in the wake of the storm. rainfall amounts over the weekend, we had a quarter inch to half inch over many areas. right along the coastline, almost an inch. snow continues to pile up over the sierra. there is a winter weather advisory for those of you heading to the sierra today. for us, partly cloudy with cool conditions expected. tomorrow morning we're cloudy and as the day goes on, we turn mostly mostly cloudiy. then we have scattered showers over the bay area on wednesday. there's a look at the afternoon. this system is going scoot down along the coastline and we'll
get the wrap around moisture. it won't be raining all day. and the little ones can get out and enjoy those new toys but be aware that wet weather will be hanging around for christmas day. a quarter to a half inch is expected for that. today, this morning, it's a freezing start in napa and santa rosa, upper 30s in livermore, 45 in downtown san francisco. thinking about that early morning run, bundle up. 55 degrees later on today, and the overnight lows will come up as we get into this system with all the cloud cover. afternoon highs are not going to change. we get past wednesday's storm and we're dry all the way through the weekend. thank you.
