in in dublin, you two have some sporadic rain showers all the way into the hayward area. palo alto downpour right now. redwood city. same pretty. what, up and down the peninsula dry around the san mateo bridge. we pull on out. we see the rain has now ceased around the bay bridge and also the golden gate bridge. but that will be the case today hit miss scattered showers. no snow falling right now and tahoe, but so far we've had a wintry mix their fog filling and so we'll have fog, breezy conditions and occasional rain shower temperature is currently in the fifties. both forecast just minutes away, but right now, let's say a big good monday morning to sell high there. good morning, roberto. we have a big problem on the bay bridge. we've had a couple of crashes, the latest one being at harrison street on the san francisco side of the bridge, westbound and this is really made the bay bridge the entire thing. various slow, i would not recommend using the bay bridge right now. i would recommend using transit
or perhaps going around the long way because the bay bridge is just completely jammed into san francisco all the way across. maybe you go on 8 80 you use the same mateo bridge to get over there. don't get caught. and if you're trying to catch a flight, definitely do not use the bay bridge. it really is terrible. let me put the picture up again. even the carpool lanes are completely jammed here. so this is a big issue. if you're trying to get across the way, this really affects everything, because so many people use that bridge. it's a big problem. we'll have another update in just a few minutes. it's 702. let's get back to the headlines. thank you. as roberta's been reporting here we do expect at least a little more rain for this morning's commute will swing out to ktvu james torres. he's live in pleasant hill, monitoring the rain that's coming down and the effect it's having james good morning to you . we've been out here for a couple hours this morning. the morning started off with just a little drizzle. little spit of ray, but it's certainly start to come down. just a tiny bit harder. so you definitely want

exciting but a long way to go with the period of constant rain. there also concerns over recent burn scars, the nws keeping an eye on the areas burned by the colorado fire that was back in january in that area. there were still flash flood watch, in effect that by a burning fire, burning about 700 acres in big sur the nws now warning of the risk of debris flow and landslides. they just extended that watch that flash flood watch national weather service extending it until about eight o'clock tonight. again, rain getting just a tad bit heavier compared to what we've seen the last two hours. course we'll keep our eye on it for the rest of the morning and keep you posted. burnett reporting live this morning. i'm james torres. ktvu fox two news, james. thank you equip reminder. here you can turn to the ktvu weather app to track this system even before you head out this morning or any time it includes interactive radar forecast updates, it's a quick free download for your smart phone and tablet. alright gaussian time. 74 ukrainian president zelinsky now says he's willing to commit to his country being neutral. staying out of

again, which wasn't the case for some of us who have been driving in the rain this morning. hi everybody. it is much needed and welcome precipitation so far, oakland a quarter of an inch of rain we've had over 3/10 and palo alto, just shy of 2/10 in san francisco and san jose, was at less than 1/10 of an inch of rain 16 minutes ago. but they had this big, beautiful sell over the area, and it dumped copious amounts of precipitation . now almost 2/10 of an inch of rain there you have that area. low pressure. it is the frontal boundary and we have the wrap around moisture that will keep us in the rain throughout the day. today yonville rain is now tapering off the lake hill. you have a moderate, sell over your area. east bay. won't it creak and brenda when you see the reflections of yellow, that is a moderate down poor when you see the shades of orange. that's a heavier rain from across the central bay all the way into the south bay, and that's why san jose has picked up some rainfall totals. we do see some drier
conditions around the peninsula . now, sam mateos dry mostly cloudy with some areas of fog developing and just a hint of some drizzle around the marina district. bottom line is we will see some rain and snow moving into the greater lake tahoe area. we've had seen that mixed earlier this morning as well. cloud cover over the city of san francisco. we're currently we have temperatures very mild into the fifties. the winds have been under 10 mph, but we'll blow out of the south to 10 mph with increases up to 20 during the day. currently a 10 mile per hour wind at sfo. we're going to talk about this right here. we're going to walk you to your future cats and tell you just how much longer this rain is going to last. but right now, let's set it on back over to you, dave. oh it's sal. you get you? yeah, well, you know what? i think a lot of viewers would want to forget this morning's commute. it's not great. we had a couple of crashes on the bay bridge and now the issuer freeway trying just to get to
the vape bridge. let me show it to you. it's very slow. it is backed up through berkeley heads slow all the way to the toll plaza. if you're driving into san francisco, it is jam packed . this is because of a couple of different crashes on the bridge that had been cleared, but it's just very, very slow. the biggest one was that harrison street. and there were a couple of other things on the bridge as well. so we're having a bad morning. san mateo bridge is catching up. some people have heard about the bay breaks are using the same material bridge. my advice is to use bart if you can or put off the trip, because right now it's not a good time to cross the bay. 7 33. let's go back to the desk. okay sal. thank you. well, if you have to gas up your car, expect to pay more today than you did a week ago. california gas prices are among the highest in the country . ktvu zahle rasmus is here now to tell us which bay area counties have the cheapest gas. good morning, alan. good morning, david. when we talk about cheap gas, it's all relative. of course, prices in the bay area hovering just under

make the money. then you gotta buy the food that's inflated. the study, spiking prices at the pump may be changing our commuting habits. barton reports an increase in passengers daily ridership on bart is up about 30% for this month with some of the biggest increases in passenger traffic happening on weekends. garcia and david will send it back to you. ali rasmus. thank you. we expect new information today from san jose police on two shootings over the weekend right near san jose state. in one case, a police officer opened fire. we have a map here that shows how close these two shootings were sunday morning and just 30 minutes apart. the first happened at 2 44 am someone was shot and killed itself fourth and east san carlos streets minutes later near la victoria taqueria police say an officer shot someone. who allegedly had a gun. yeah absolutely. absolutely this police presence around here all the time. we typically at around that time do have an extra contingent of officers dealing with the after bar crowds, etcetera. the person who was shot by a police officer is in the hospital expected to survive

kharkiv is ukraine's second biggest city. it's been the target of some of the worst bombing since the russian invasion began elsewhere in the city of mary uphold both ukraine and russia agreed to a humanitarian corridor crossing to allow people to leave that area. a language learning apps says it's seen a huge spike in interest. by people who want to learn the ukrainian language ever since russia invaded ukraine dual lingo says it's seen more than a fivefold increase in interest and an even greater jump in poland. golingan says people there are learning the ukrainian language so they can help refugees and connect with them in a tweet. the company shared that it's donating all of its ad revenue to ukrainian refugee needs. okay, got time is 7 38 sal castaneda back once again. lots of traffic problems in our commute this morning, so yes, and the bay bridge is really taking all of it. but it's not the only spot that's slow. i do
want to mention 80th slow if you are driving out from the richmond area, all the way out to the bay bridge, and when you get to the bay bridge even the carpool lanes are slow, and that's what usually makes me take a second. look when these lanes are like this, that means we've had the big trouble on the bay bridge. i do want to show you that on the screen, the bay bridge the road sensors are showing that things are getting better west of treasure island. that's good news, and hopefully the rest will follow. some people have been going down. to use the same tale bridge and that has been ok. a as you drive over to the peninsula, but i guess the best thing for you to do really, if you have a choice is to just put off the commute. that's a tall order for morning commute. look at 6 80 slow out of pleasant 80 80 slow out of union city heading down the fremont almost all of these commutes have been slow. we've been focusing on the bay bridge just because it is the slowest. but remember, all the other commutes are pretty slow as they normally would be at this time
