45 degrees in san francisco. 33 in santa rosa, hovering around freezing all morning long. and that's not the only spot. temperatures very cold in livermore at 36. oakland slipping to 39 there and san jose at 45. a lot colder this morning for most. patchy fog for some. as we get into the afternoon, we are going to remain partly cloudy, dry, but on the cool side for some. i'll have a look at your temperatures coming up in just a little bit. if you're traveling to the sierra, snow continues to fall at this hour. details coming up. we have the latest update on the crash we mentioned in san ramon, bollinger canyon road, still multiple lanes closed at that intersection because of the crash, but it is in the clearing stages. also want to mention northbound 238 at westbound 580, a big rig involved in a crash there. skip ahead to where we are talking about -- we want to show you the carquinez bridge, east shore bay, a nice easy
drive. when you get to the toll plaza traffic very light. go back to the desk. >> thank you. we are continuing to follow a deadly shooting in bay point, a convenience store clerk shot and killed by an armed robber. elissa harrington spoke with the store's owner and has some video of the very scary encounter. good morning . >> reporter: good morning. you can see the store is back open but i did get a chance to speak with the owner. he provided ktvu with security video taken from inside the store. i do want to warn you, it is very graphic. it shows two men enter kam's market. one goes behind the counter, takes cash out of the register and then pistol whips the clerk. a second suspect goes to the back of the store and holds a manager there in the back. i spoke with the owner of kam's. he told me the deputies are still searching for that second suspect. >> they came around the corner
and, unfortunately, he was counting the money and they were able to grab the money and then there was a little fight going on between both of them and mark, the guy, his gun went off and mark panicked and pulled out our gun and he actually shot the guy. >> reporter: the injured suspect then ran out of the store and down lynbrook street where he collapsed. paramedics pronounced him dead at the scene. i'm told the clerk who was pistol whipped had to get stitches but is expected to be okay. i actually just went inside the store and another thing that the owner told me is that the suspect's gun went off first. it went off and then hit the ceiling so they had to remove one of the ceiling panels and that is when the clerk got his gun and opened fire. reporting live from bay point, elissa harrington, ktvu fox 2 news. happening today, the alameda county board of supervisor set to vote on selling the county share of the oakland coliseum complex to the oakland as. the sale would include the
stadium and the arena. the former malibu grand prix property next to the complex and the oakland raiders training facility in alameda. supervisor made -- the county's stake in the complex is $85 million. they say the sale is likely to relieve the county's debt that's weighed on taxpayers since the raiders returned to oakland. schaaff released a statement saying a sale represents progress for east oakland and as fans and all of us working to keep the team rooted in oakland. house speaker nancy pelosi hasn't yet sent the two articles of impeachment to the senate saying she wants assurances that there will be a fair trial in the senate. sonoma state political science professor david mccune offers another opinion as to why pelosi is holding back. >> what speaker pelosi is trying to do is gain leverage here at least with mitch mcconnell and the proceedings as they move forward. the problem with that is that we are looking at iowa voting in less than 50 days and democrats are worried about how
impeachment could affect those early primaries. >> mccune also says president trump and the g.o.p. are expected to use the impeachment as a way of rallying republicans and independent voters. newly released documents show 90 minutes after president trump's july 25th phone call with the president of ukraine the white house ordered a freeze on aid to ukraine. the documents were obtained by the senate for public integrity. tells the pentagon to keep quiet about the aid because of the sensitive nature of the request. the president's decision to halt aid was never announced and no normal notification was ever sent to congress. a court in saudi arabia has sentenced five people to death for the killing of "washington post" columnist jamal khashoggi. jamal khashoggi was killed in the saudi consulate in istanbul last year by a team of saudi agents. the kingdom's crown prince drew international condemnation for the killing because several saudi agents involved had worked with him directly. two people are in custody
this morning after a shooting in chicago left 13 people injured. it happened in the city's south side sunday morning. the party was held in memory of a person killed earlier this year in chicago. police believe the shooting stemmed from some sort of argument, dispute. shootings were fired initially inside the home. however, police say there were bullets seen flying into the streets targeting people who were running for safety. police have not identified the suspects. they have in custody. a 17th person now died from injuries after a volcano erupted on white island about two weeks ago. that victim died saturday night at the hospital. new zealand's prime minister has launched an investigation into why tour guides were still working on the island when there were warnings about an uptick in volcanic activity. two more people are still missing and presumed dead. officials of sacramento's international airport say that so far today all flights
scheduled to arrive and depart on time. this after a rough day yesterday with more than half of the flights delayed yesterday. this had nothing to do with weather. it was an internet outage at the airport. a car hit a utility pole and that meant every passenger, every piece of luggage had to be checked in manually. >> this is the worst experience ever in my entire life and i've been flying a lot. >> kind of like this is my first holiday without my family. i'm 20, a college student, so i kind of hurt. >> almost every airline at the airport was affected. arriving flights were not impacted. everything should be okay and on schedule this morning. we just checked with the three major bay area airports. we found no serious delays or cancellations this morning. but as you should know by now, always check with your airline before you head to the airport and people are being told instead of leaving one hour ahead of time for domestic flights, make it two. >> our dads would be so proud of us. >> there we go. i imagine the airports are
busy. how about the roadways? check in. >> roadways are looking okay. busier in some spots, not in others. i checked b.a.r.t. and also muni and no delays on those systems right now. go to the maps. we are still following that problem earlier in san ramon, croak canyon road at bollinger road, a multicar crash shut down a couple of lanes. 20 to 30 minutes before everything can open up entirely. also a crash northbound 238 at westbound 580. a big rig and another vehicle and you can see traffic getting pretty slow at that interchange there. here's highway 24 in lafayette, traffic getting lighter compared to what we saw about an hour ago. on the left of the screen you can see that fog dancing around. looks pretty magical there. here is 880 in oakland, north and southbound traffic looks good and once you get to the toll plaza, you will see no problems at all. looks like this camera is a little out of focus but you can see from the pretty sparse headlights there's no backup here. nice. there we go.
let's check in with rosemary orozco for a look at our weather and you can see a nice sunrise in the distance over the east bay hills. >> that blurry shot, i thought it was my eyes but -- >> i had to do a double take as well and then it went on focus on cue. >> we are looking at a brighter day. more sunshine out there. and with the clear skies overhead and during the overnight hours, we have a lot colder start to the day. there's a look at sfo. not experiencing any fog here and no delays reported at sfo for the time being. winds are light. that patchy fog is especially thick for the inner east bay as well as the north bay this morning. we will check in on that visibility here. take a look. so san francisco, oakland, down through san jose, make that san francisco and oakland, good visibility because now san jose is reporting a mile. we get to the inner east bay, livermore reporting quarter mile and that dark shade of gray indicates that it is really thick in some areas,
680, highway 24, highway 4 through the delta, there's even a dense fog advisory for portions of the sacramento valley this morning. novato reporting less than quarter mile. santa rosa and napa reporting 10. that will continue to change as it has been all morning long. another headline for the morning, just how much colder it is. take a look at that, down by 20 degrees in napa, 14 degrees cooler in oakland, 12 degrees cooler in livermore. here is a view of some of the numbers. 31 in napa, below freezing to start your day. just a tad above freezing in santa rosa. mid-40s in downtown san francisco, mid-30s in castro valley, mid-40s in san jose. dry for today, unless you're going to the sierra, the snow continues here and there is a winter weather advisory that will remain in place until 10:00 tonight. do be prepared for the slick roads and the hazardous conditions. for us we are going to remain with the dry weather through today. most of tomorrow before the rain returns tuesday night. your afternoon highs for today,
54 in san francisco, 55 in concord. better details on that next storm moving our way coming up in just a little bit. >> thank you, rosemary. a big win for the 49ers this weekend came with heavy hearts as the team learned one of their own is dealing with a death in his family. coming up how the head coach kyle shanahan addressed the sensitive matter in his locker room and his message from -- as many stores are extending their hours for shoppers, some residents are making it a point to avoid the malls and do something else instead. what it is, we will tell you right after the break.
we are now a couple of days away from christmas and stores are sending their hours to make sure everyone gets their gifts on time for the big holiday. over the weekend people descended upon union square in san francisco trying to snag last minute deals. the national retail federation expects holiday retail sales in the u.s. to increase about 4% from last year. but for some people in union square, it wasn't just about the shopping. it's taking in the city's holiday vibe and honing in on what christmas is all about. if you haven't finished all your holiday shopping, some stores including macy's are open christmas eve. >> make a point of avoiding the malls and supporting local artists instead. we saw a big crowd yesterday at
the crane way craft fair in richmond. more than 200 exhibits were showcased. one of the producers says this event provides an alternative to shopping online or at chain stores and it helps small business owners. this was the 49th year of the craft fair. 49ers will travel up to seattle on sunday for a game that will have huge implications for how the playoff situation will all shake out. if the niners beat the seahawks sunday they will win the afc west, grab the number 1 playoff seated but get a first round bye and they can use it. if the 49ers lose they fall down to the number 5 seed and will likely play on the road at philly in wild card round number 1. niners still dealing with a number of injury concerns but the las vegas odds makers still have them as a slight favorite over seattle. sunday's game will kick off about 5:20. nashville police say they are still gathering information on saturday's stabbing that
left two young men dead and a third person hospitalized. one of the victims, 22-year-old clayton beathard. he is the younger brothers of the 49ers backup quarterback c.j. beathard. the coach later told the team that he talked with beathard as he was leaving sunday's game with the rams. >> stopped me and says, make sure the guys win this game. i didn't want to say that at the beginning because this game doesn't mean anything compared to his brother. we know that. but you guys also know c.j. and he's got our backs as much as any of us and we got his, man. special day for us, guys, and i'm so thankful for you guys that you could do that for him because that was the last thing he said to me and i know that still meant a lot to him. >> clayton beathard's 21-year- old friend paul tra paeony also passed away. nashville police now released a
photo of another man, this man that they would like to question about the stabbing. 7:17. it's now a three team race for the final afc playoff spot heading into the final week of the season. >> pass complete. hunter renfroe off to the races, five touchdowns. >> the raiders beach the chargers in los angeles yesterday 24-17. oakland is now 7-8. they will need help if they want to claim the postseason. they will need to beat the broncos in denver and they need houston, baltimore and indianapolis to win their games. quarterback derek parr talked about his team yesterday in l.a. >> we have been through a lot of crap and it is what it is. nobody cares -- and to say that we are still playing week 17 for something, like that's unbelievable. that's really a good thing because i've been on teams in the past where we have those moments where we lose a couple of games in a row and don't
know. this team never did that. >> sunday's game against the broncos kicks off at 1:25. >> raiders not only needed to beat the chargers. they needed five other teams to win yesterday for them to be in position for next week. >> all the planets align. >> all fell into place and a lot of those teams are behind and came back to rally. so good for the rams. holly, good morning. how are we doing out there? >> a lot of moving pieces you mentioned in football and a lot of moving pieces out on the roads. things looking good driving this monday morning, of what is a holiday week for a lot of folks. you can see that reflected this this drive on westbound highway 4. you can see no problems here, a lot of green on the maps which is how we like to see it. a little bit of a traffic hazard in the eastbound direction at bailey road you will have to look out for. there is an earlier crash we mentioned westbound 580 at springtown in the livermore area heading down to the silicon valley commute, overall your drive anywhere you're going in the south bay looks pretty good. this is usually the time of the
morning where we start to see things pick up in the south bay and that is not the case. so hopefully a light drive for folks out there. san mateo bridge traffic looks pretty light and here is san jose, 280, an hour ago this picture was fine but now it's all fogged in. i think that's the perfect segue to send it over to rosemary orozco because there's pretty dense, heavy fog in spots as you can see there. >> yes, it's all over the place. san jose reporting a mile, the north bay reporting quarter mile in some spots. take a look at some of the rainfall from the weekend because we continue to see the next storm moving and bringing us more rain, but for the past weekend we saw anywhere from quarter inch to 1/2" in our urban areas. livermore not so well. 14-100 reported for you there. ben lemmon lemmon, 2 inches.
a winter weather advisory for folks traveling up, be prepared for that. we are looking at that lasting until 10:00 tonight. for us it's going to be a partly cloudy, dry, cool day. there's tomorrow morning, waking up partly cloudy and dry. over the course of the afternoon, though, our clouds will increase and by tomorrow night, christmas eve evening, we have got scattered showers in the forecast. it's going to linger into wednesday morning. so for the folks that have to be on the roadways on wednesday, on and off, it is not going to be a complete washout with steady rain but as the system scoots the coastline we are going to get the wraparound moisture. so on and off scattered showers in the forecast for your wednesday. as far as rainfall amounts anywhere from quarter inch to an inch expected. this could change a little bit as we get closer and we will continue to fine-tune that for you. meanwhile our temperatures this morning very cold. 31 in napa, 33 santa rosa.
inner east bay, 36 in livermore and around the bay, upper 30s to mid-40s. your afternoon highs for today, 50s, mid to upper 50s for the north bay of santa rosa as well as the south bay of san jose. extended forecast, our afternoon highs won't change much. we will remain in the 50s. scattered showers tuesday, wednesday and then we dry out and it looks like we are dry through the weekend. >> thank you. you may have to look out for more than just package thieves this holiday season. police are warning people about what's being called mailbox fishing. coming up we explain what that is and what you need to know to keep your mail safe. also find out why a million dollar home in one of silicon valley's most desirable cities is selling for a fraction of that price.
7:24. new this morning, boeing's ceo is resigning amid ongoing problems with the company's troubled 737 max jets. dennis muleberg is stepping down immediately. boeing's current board chairman will officially take over january 13th. the board says a change in leadership was necessary to restore confidence in the company as it works to repair relationships with regulators and shareholders. you will remember the 737 max jet was grounded worldwide in march after the second of two crashes that killed a combined total of 346 people. there's a lot more mail during the holidays certainly and thieves count on some of that mail to contain cash or checks. police are warning about what's being called mailbox fishing, when thieves manage to get a mousetrap or some sticky substance on the end of the string, drop that into a
mailbox and draw it back up with whatever envelopes that stick to it. the easiest targets are those big outdoor mailboxes and those where no one is watching. police say that people can avoid being victims by avoiding mail drops during certain times of the days in the week. >> try not to mail something outdoors after the box's last collection time for the day. every box has a posted collection time. so you certainly don't want your mail sitting in the box overnight or overnight on a saturday into a sunday when it's not going to be collected for more than 48 hours. >> investigators say the thieves certainly focus on the holidays but they are active around the year, especially around the first and the 15th of the month. that is frequently when people receive their government checks as well as mortgage or rent payments. to the north bay, the petaluma police department is asking for the public's help in identifying two people. this man and woman stole a wallet that someone left on the counter at a petaluma market. police say the suspects charged
more than $1700 on the victim's credit card at stores, supermarkets, a movie theater and a cigarette shop. warning people that another credit card skimming device found at a local gas station. it was discovered at a gas and shop station on sir frances drake boulevard near spalding drive earlier this month. skimmers are used to capture customers' credit and debit card numbers as well as personal i.d. numbers. state officials say they have found 286 credit card skimmers so far this year but they warn many more were likely planted and not discovered before identity thieves removed them. some people waiting for their gifts to arrive may be disappointed after a fedex delivery truck went up in flames in orange county. the driver picked up the packages and was heading out towards san diego. fullerton firefighters sprayed water on the truck and picked through the packages and tried to save what they could. no word yet on how this fire started. here in the bay area, may be hard to believe but a house on the market in one of silicon
valley's most soughtafter neighborhoods and going for $274,000. this is part of the city of los gatos' affordable housing program. this is a house, the two bedroom, 1100 square foot townhouse is worth $1.4 million. now, there are some income qualifications. you have to make less than $132,000 a year for a family of four. the home will always remain in the affordable housing program. that means whoever buys it likely won't be able to make millions when they sell it because it will be sold at a lowered price. the list is out for the coldest real estate markets in the united states. four bay area cities made that list. coming up, find out where the cities rank and what this might mean for the bay area real estate market. also with tensions between the united states and north korea grow, the u.s. military is monitoring the area for a possible surprise missile test. details on what a new satellite image shows when we come back.
millions of americans are taking to the roads and the sky for this holiday season. we will dissect the best days to head out and what to know if you're heading up to the sierra. thousands of toys soon to be handed out to families in need in the south bay. we are life in san jose with what to expect at the annual toy giveaway at sacred heart. from ktvu fox 2 news, this is mornings on 2. >> i'm frank mallicoat in for dave clark today. >> and i'm gasia mikaelian. get you out the door. you need to bring the jacket, maybe the umbrella stays in the trunk for now. >> for now. by tomorrow night, though, that will change once again. >> okay. >> after receiving a good amount of rain over the weekend, we have dry conditions this morning, but in its wake all that moisture and the cold air and the clear sky leading
to some fog and it is especially thick for the north bay and inner east bay. with the clearing in the overnight hours, we are a lot colder this morning. afternoon partly cloudy, dry. gets in the 50s. and as we mentioned a moment ago, the next storm moving in by christmas eve. i'll have a look at the details on this and the extended forecast coming up in just a little bit. 7:31. let's go back to the desk. >> thank you, rosemary. if you're planning to leave on a holiday trip today or tomorrow, give yourself plenty of time because according to aaa here, a record 150 million americans expected to travel this holiday season. that's the highest number we have seen in almost 20 years. most of them will drive with the worst traffic expected the day after christmas. nearly 7 million travelers are expected to fly and that's a 5% increase from last year and it's the most we have since 2003. >> stuck in traffic as you go, there's a bunch of people all around. you can't find a spot to sit when you're waiting for your plane. >> it's more expensive and more
inconvenient but you're going to places where you're excited to see people. so it's all worth it. >> airline officials recommend getting to the airport at least two hours ahead of your flight. the tsa suggests if you're traveling with gifts, don't wrap them yet because if they need to be inspected agents will have to open them up. if you're revving up the car and heading up to lake tahoe, expect to be putting chains on the tires: right now chain controls on highway 50, 80 and 89 except for four-wheel- drive vehicles. the chp says even those drivers should probably carry chains in case the next storm dumps more snow than the snow plows and scrapers can remove. experienced drivers had other advice for people who are on their way through the mountains for the holidays. >> i do a lot of driving up and down through the mountains, but i didn't think i would be coming up here when it would be this bad. make sure you have fuel, extra blankets, flashlights and all the safety stuff you need. >> take your time and just enjoy it. it's beautiful. it's peaceful. >> california highway patrol
also suggests drivers check the weather forecast before they leave home so they know what to expect once they are on the road. 7:33. happening today, thousands of toys will be handed out to families in need in the south bay and just in time for christmas. >> sara zendehnam joins us live. she is in san jose where the annual sacred heart toy giveaway is underway. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. this event is officially underway and if you know me, you know that i am living the dream right now because they are blasting christmas music. it is a festive feeling in here right now. what's cool about this event is they don't just have toys for kids. of course they have all of these action figures and barbie dolls and everything but they also have an entire section right over here for teenagers. this seems to be kind of a popular section that people are crowding around. so really toys for -- and gifts for kids of all ages. now, families that are in here right now were lining up early this morning to get inside at 7:00 this morning and start picking all these holiday

current and four former white house officials to testify in the trial. members say pelosi is overstepping her bounds. >> it's the senate's job to dispose of impeachment articles once passed by the house. >> they might exonerate president trump or they might further incriminate him. but the truth should come out on something as important as an impeachment. >> lawmakers from both parties said over the weekend they believe a trial is still likely to happen at some point in january in the senate. however, it does remain unclear how long that trial would last. u.s. military leaders are monitoring north korea for a possible surprise missile test. north korea has warned of a possible christmas gift to the united states saying the trump administration is running out of time on nuclear negotiations. a new satellite image of a factory where north korea makes military equipment is -- >> disappointed if something
would be in the works and if it is, we will take care of it. but we are watching it very closely. >> if a missile is launched, a white house official says the u.s. would likely respond by enacting additional sanctions. 7:38. a check of traffic on this monday before the big holiday. >> your drive pretty good in most spots of the bay area. some of the earlier crashes we are following are now in the clearing stages and you can see your drive from the carquinez bridge to the macarthur maze under 20 minutes. very good for about 7:40 on a monday morning. it is a holiday for a lot of folks. there was an earlier crash westbound 80 at mcbride but it is in the clearing stages and again not tying things up too badly on that drive on that westbound 80 corridor. richmond bridge toll plaza also nice and clear this morning. no problems as you make your way over to san rafael and the golden gate bridge looks good as well. nice sunny day out there in the distance, even though it's
going to be chilly and i'm looking at that flag post there and seeing the flag waving in the wind. rosemary orozco is joining us now to tell us about the forecast for today. >> a pretty picture there. getting outside may not feel as great as that picture looks. it's a cold one. we have freezing temperatures for our inland computers, north bay, east bay. we will be partly cloudy for today. we are going to be dry for today. most of the country dry. besides areas over the deep south and then through the pacific northwest and the west coast, the only areas really experiencing wet weather for most of the weekend and here we are now with delays only reported over areas of phoenix. outside of that, we are in good shape for those of you that are getting onto those planes. we have visibility issues in many portions of the bay area, but not reported at sfo this morning. that's good news. our inland communities, north bay as well as the east bay and now in the south bay, san jose reporting visibility down to

10 to 15 minutes this week. but b.a.r.t. is still on its regular schedule. the only day it's going to be different is on wednesday, christmas holiday. bay bridge toll plaza looks good. a report of a crash past the toll plaza but not causing any problems or backups here. let's go back to the desk. >> thank you. new this morning, a clerk shot and killed an armed robber at a convenience store in bay point. it happened at kam's market on the port chicago highway. elissa harrington spoke with the owner and has video from that incident and joins us live in front of the store with more. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. kam's market. at one point the clerk and the suspect was on the ground wrestling when the suspect's gun went off. it hit the ceiling. they had to remove that ceiling panel. the clerk then fired back, fatally wounding the gunman. the whole thing was captured on surveillance video. i want to show you, you can see 11:00 last night.
one heads to the back of the store where that person holds a manager at gunpoint. then the other heads straight to the cash register. the clerk was counting money. the armed suspect pistol whipped the clerk and knocked him to the ground. the clerk then pulled out a gun and after the suspect's gun went off first, the clerk opened fire too shooting that suspect. the suspect is heard on video calling to his partner saying that the clerk does have a gun, and then they both run out but the suspect only made it about halfway down the block before collapsing. paramedics pronounced him dead at the scene. the second suspect still outstanding. the owner of kam's market told me the clerk involved had worked here about five years and he is an air force veteran. >> took him hospital. he got stitches on the head and is checking out and when i told him that he actually killed the guy, he was very sad. >> reporter: i talked to one of the regular customers here and he told me he had seen that

fair trial there. sonoma state political science professor david mcewen offers another opinion as to why pelosi is holding back. >> what speaker pelosi is trying to do is gain leverage here at least with mitch mcconnell and the proceedings as they move forward. the problem with that is that we are looking at iowa voting in less than 50 days and democrats are worried about how impeachment could affect those early primaries. >> mcewen also says president trump and the g.o.p. are expected to use the impeachment as a way of rallying the republican and independent voters. newly released documents show that 90 minutes after president trump's july 25th phone call with the president of ukraine the white house ordered a freeze on aid to ukraine. the documents were obtained by the senate for publicity integrity. in one e-mail a senior official at the office of management and budget tells the pentagon to keep quiet about the aid freeze because of the quote, sensitive nature of the request. the documents appear to show that the president's decision to halt aid was never announced and no normal notification was ever sent to congress.
new this morning a court in saudi arabia sentenced five people to death for the killing of "washington post" columnist jamal khashoggi. khashoggi was killed in the saudi consulate in istanbul last year by a team of saudi agents. the kingdom's crown prince drew international condemnation for the killing because several saudi agents involved had worked directly for him. two people in custody this morning after a shooting in chicago left 13 people injured. that shooting happened at a house party in the city's south side early sunday morning. party was held in memory of a person killed earlier this year in chicago. police believe the shooting stemmed from a dispute. shots were fired initially inside the home. however, police say bullets were seen flying into the streets targeting people that were running for safety. police have not identified the suspects that they now have in custody. new zealand officials say a 17th person has now died from injuries after volcanic eruption on white island about two weeks ago. according to reuters, the victim died saturday night at

no serious delays and cancellations this morning but certainly as most frequent travelers will tell you, it's a good idea to check with your airline before you get in the car to go to the airport and at this time of year you know to plan even more time ahead of when you think you're supposed to be there. >> the airports can get crazy especially around the holidays. the roads maybe not so much because a lot of folks are probably already where they want to be. >> no major problems on the roads, at least not in the monday morning commute. definitely lighter than we would expect to see on a monday morning. but there are still some issues to talk about and that's why we are going to check the maps now, including this crash in fairfield. this is westbound 80 at air base parkway, a single vehicle collision. the car on its roof. we expect lighter than usual traffic so not as many heading that direction but something to be aware of. also a report of a crash just past the toll plaza but looking at our toll plaza picture, things overall look pretty good. your drive on the westbound 80 corridor through the eastshore freeway, it will take you just 19 minutes to get from the
carquinez bridge to this point here on the screen and then once you get to the toll plaza, look how light that is, it's like a saturday commute usually. send it over to rosemary. >> thank you very much. good morning to you. it is a colder start to the day. it's a foggy start to the day in some areas. looking at that shot that allie had of the san mateo bridge, right there at the ground level where most folks are driving, it is improving. we still have quite a bit over the hills, though, and you can almost see that in that picture. here's a look at the visibility map where if you take a look at san francisco, oakland, even into concord, napa at this point, visibility looking good. novato still very thick along highway, you will find patchy, dense fog. into san jose, mild reported there. plenty of gray to go around. at the higher elevations we are seeing the fog. although sacramento still with a dense fog advisory. so the takeaway here is you are going to find some outhere,
especially if you're driving in the valleys this morning and closer to the sacramento valley. everybody starting out colder this morning with the clear skies in place, the drier air in place, 19 degrees colder this morning in napa, literally freezing this morning. down by 13 in oakland, down by nine over san jose. a look at your numbers here. 38 in livermore. if we go to the north bay, 32 in napa. half moon bay 39. low 40s for the east bayshore, 43 right now in berkeley. san francisco reporting 45. we are dry for today. next system going to bring us some rain on tuesday night. in the sierra, though, the snow continues to fall and there is a winter weather advisory if you're traveling up for today, this doesn't expire until 10:00 tonight, so the slick roads and the hazardous conditions, if you are moving into our going to the tahoe area. for us today, partly cloudy, dry, a little on the cool side for some. 54 san francisco, 55 in hayward, upper 50s in the south bay of san jose.

those moments where we lose a couple games in a row and, think, oh, no. this team never about that. >> sunday's game against the broncos kicks off at 1:25. traffic time with allie in for sal and i don't think she is superbusy. >> well, i am busy keeping an eye on the roads, but the roads aren't busy. we are going to start with some of the traffic cameras. this one in particular i thought was interesting because our traffic camera expert dave changed the angle of this. this is usually 280 in san jose but the fog is so thick you can't see 280. so he moved it so we are looking at highway 87, the northbound lanes heading into downtown san jose and you can see there's no problem, traffic very light there. there is a report of a crash just past the toll plaza, but it is not backing things up at all because the toll plaza is so light, traffic here this morning is really easy drive getting into the city. and here's the golden gate
bridge. traffic looks heavier here than the bay bridge. it's a nice, sunny picture. i wanted to juxtapose this picture with the sunol grade in fremont, sunny at the golden gate bridge and foggy in fremont. i thought that was interesting. it's usually the exact opposite about six months from now in the summertime. it will be -- it's kind of flip- flopped for this time of the year. >> absolutely. this is a different type of fog. we are looking at that ground fog that is also radiational fog, a little bit of moisture lingering from the storm from this past weekend and the cold temperatures and, yes, it's our valley locations that are seeing most of that fog this morning. there's a look at san francisco. a beautiful start here. partly cloudy, mostly clear for the afternoon. and dry today. here's a look at some of the rainfall amounts from this latest system that moved through on sunday, bringing us a good amount of rain. san francisco picked up almost 1/2" as well as santa rosa. orinda a little bit more than

into the afternoon. the brunt of the system, the center of it is going to slide down the coastline so we are going to get that wraparound moisture that will continue with the on and off scattered showers over the course of your wednesday, at least the first half of the day. rainfall amounts right now look to be anywhere from quarter inch to 1/2". we will be tracking that and fine tuning it as we get closer. but for the here and now, temperatures a lot colder this morning, 33 in the north bay of santa rosa, freezing in napa, inner east bay, livermore at 38. widespread 40s around the bay. as we get into the afternoon, mid to upper 50s expected for you here. our temps not going to change in the afternoon, not by much. tuesday, wednesday, thursday into friday we get past the wet weather and then we are dry through the weekend. back to you. >> rosemary, thank you. 8:20 now. you may have to look out for more than just package thieves this holiday season because police are warning people about what's called mailbox fishing. i had not heard of this. >> i haven't either. >> we are going to explain to you what it is and what you need to know to help keep your mail safe.

this is on westbound 80 at air base parkway. single vehicle crash, ambulance on the way. there's also a tow truck at the scene south of there, westbound 780 at south hampton road there's a collision as well and they screwed up so you can see where that is in the benicia area. the westbound 80 corridor looks good overall except for report of a crash at the toll plaza, but we have been checking that toll plaza camera and isn't backing traffic up at all. it is a really easy drive on the toll plaza which we will show you in about eight minutes. look at your drive on westbound highway 24 through lafayette, traffic here light as well. 8:32. go back to the desk. planning to leave on a long holiday trip today or tomorrow give yourself plenty of time because according to aaa a record 150 million americans are expected to travel this holiday season, that's the highest number we have seen in almost 20 years. most of them will drive with the worst traffic expected the day after christmas. nearly 7 million travelers are expected to fly and that's a 5% increase from last year. the most we have seen since
2003. >> going to airport is more stressful, you are stuck in traffic as you go. a bunch of people all around. you can't find a spot to sit waiting for your plane. >> it's more expensive and more inconvenient but you're going to places where you are excited to see people so it's worth it. >> get to the airports at least two hours ahead of flights. if you're taking gifts do not wrap them yet because if they need to be inspected agents will have to open the gifts up. snow country, lake tahoe, expect to be putting chains on tires. interstate 80 has been cleared recently but chp says even those drivers should carry chains just in case the next storm dumps more snow than snow plows and scrapers can handle. experienced drivers had some other advice for people who are on their way to the mountains for the holidays. >> i do a lot of driving up and down through the mountains, but i didn't think i would be coming up here when it would be
this bad. >> make sure you have fuel, make sure you have extra blankets, make sure you've got flashlights and all the safety stuff you need. >> take your time and enjoy it. >> beautiful. it's peaceful. >> california highway patrol also suggests drivers check the weather forecast before they take off so they know what to expect once they hit the roads. >> south bay, happening today, a lot of toys being handed out there just in time for christmas. >> ktvu's sara zendehnam live in san jose where sacred heart community service is holding its annual toy box day and i know you enjoy this story, don't you, sarah? >> i love it. christmas music, toys what better assignment could i have gotten today? cool event all the way around. this room has games and puzzles, also some clothes and books. so really anything that you can imagine giftwise, they have it at this event. now, this is all for sacred heart community services' annual toy box day. over the next two days the
organization will give out more than 18,000 toys to 6000 kids in need. some families really rely on this to help their kids have a merry christmas. sacred heart has hosted this event every year for the last five decades and helped so many families in the process. the event today started at 7:00 a.m. so people have been shopping now for an hour and a half and every time the shelves seem bare, volunteers restock them to make sure each child gets enough gifts. volunteers are really the backbone of this toy box day. they got here at 4:00 this morning to get the space ready and then spent the day shopping. each family is paired with a volunteer and they get to walk through these rooms and pick two toys, one book and a stocking stuffer for each child. this event is for families that reregistered with sacred heart. we spoke with one woman who is shopping for her two daughters. she told us how important it is to have a resource like this when money is tight. >> happy because i saved money on other food or something like that. and, yeah, i'm happy to get this
this. >> reporter: sacred heart brings the communities together to address poverty in silicon valley. they are still looking for volunteers to work christmas eve so if you're interested, head to their website, sacred heart cs.org for details. the organization is also still accepting toy donations at its donation station on south first street in san jose. if you can't stop by you can donate money on the website to help families this holiday season. now, back out here live, this is probably my favorite room out of this entire place because they are blasting christmas music. i am having a great time. i know a lot of the families here, a lot of smiles on their faces. everyone is very, very grateful and appreciative of the opportunity to shop for their families this christmas. there's a lot of stuff here. and like i said, every time the shelves seem bare, the volunteers come and put more employees on the shelves so there's no shortage of gifts this holiday season for all of the families in need. this event started at 7:00 this
morning. and people will continue shopping until 8:00 tonight and tomorrow volunteers will be back here at 7:00 a.m. until 11:30 a.m. to help those families get the last minute gifts. in san jose this morning, sara zendehnam, ktvu fox 2 news. >> that's good work. thank you. also happening today, a nonprofit group is giving out christmas trees to families in san francisco. the guardsmen help at risk youth and teaming up with san francisco police and the city of san francisco to give out free trees to those in need. this is happening from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m. at the fillmore mini park in the western neighborhood. >> don't have to worry about paying anything. get a tree, bring it home for the holidays. there's not christmas without a christmas tree. >> yesterday dozens of people retreated to free christmas trees in the bayview hunters point neighborhood. b.a.r.t. will run on a sunday schedule on wednesday, christmas day, beginning at 8:00 in the morning. parking at b.a.r.t. stations is free on the holiday.
b.a.r.t. is reducing its peak commute antioch schedule today, tomorrow, thursday and friday. passengers on the antioch line during peak hours should expect trains every 10 to 15 minutes. other lines will operate normally on those days. 8:38. our allie rasmus has her hands full, even though roads are fairly quiet. >> keeping an eye on everything and we are seeing a lot of fog in those traffic cameras but not a lot of heavy traffic, especially at this point in the morning. so that is the good news. start with this picture of 880 in oakland. you can see traffic moving smoothly north and southbound past the coliseum and it's a nice, easy drive all the way to the macarthur maze from here. there is a report of a crash just as you approach the bay bridge just past the toll plaza but it is not impacting traffic here at all as you can see in this nice picture with a lot of light traffic in that area. also light traffic at the richmond bridge toll plaza, no problems getting over to san rafael from here. and we want to show the golden gate bridge, do a round about with all the bay area bridges
because everything looks good. more people driving into the city, heavier traffic here than what we saw at the bay bridge toll plaza but still no problems to tell you about. and the nice, sunny picture, a lot of sunshine here, you can see the window, it's breezy and it is chilly and cold and that's what rosemary has been telling us about all morning long, bring that heavy jacket heading out today. >> outright freezing. for our inland areas this morning, santa rosa 33 degrees. san francisco checking in in the 40s. mid-40s for you there. here's another view over san francisco with the golden gate bridge in the back drop. oakland at 40. livermore checking in at 39. and san jose in the 40s. we are a lot colder this morning with the clear skies, but we have sunshine out there. we will begin to rebound and by the afternoon widespread 50s in the forecast. down by 13 degrees this morning in oakland, down by 14 in livermore. in the north bay, freezing conditions for some. also dealing with that patchy fog this morning. the east bay, inner east bay as
well as the north bay reporting it. into the sacramento valley a dense fog advisory. some of the thicker fog, a lot of it is up over the hills. highway 24, you're going to find some. highway 4 you will find some, through the delta you will find some. most of our readings here at our airport showing pretty good visibility. novato is a tough one there along highway 101. the takeaway is if you're getting out onto the roadways, if you're driving through the valleys this morning, be prepared as you may come across some of the fog. the clouds will remain away for today. we got mostly clear skies for us, into the sierra, though, we have been talking about this this morning, the snow continues to fall. so even though we are dry, be prepared for that winter travel if you are heading to tahoe, this expires at 10:00 tonight, that winter weather advisory for i-80, as well as highway 50. partly cloudy, dry and cool tomorrow for us here today, relatively speaking, we have 54 in san francisco, upper 50s for santa rosa, upper 50s in san jose. next storm coming in on

mateo bridge, 880 in oakland looks good north and southbound and it's good all the way to the macarthur maze and the bay bridge toll plaza has been like this all morning long. i don't think the metering lights have turned on. this looks more like a saturday morning or sunday morning commute from this hour. overall things look good if you're heading out this morning. 8:48. let's check in with rosy chu. >> thank you very much. it's a dry start, a cold start. patchy fog still reported in some of our valley locations this morning. look here at stormtracker 2. you can see the bay area is dry, sierra continues to pile up snow there for today. be prepared for the hazardous conditions if you're traveling to tahoe for today, there's a winter weather advisory, doesn't expire until 10:00 tonight. here's a look at the futurecast. for your afternoon today we will go partly cloudy, mostly clear, temps in the 50s. generally light winds. tomorrow morning, partly cloudy, dry. tomorrow afternoon late in the day you will notice increase in cloud cover. tomorrow night scattered showers arrive but the next
