7:00 am
young lady said, flurries in the city, along with the peninsula and in san jose as well. looking live this morning at the city by the bay from our oakland cameras, you can see a nice and blue starts to the morning. it's very cold and the temperatures continue to fall. if you didn't catch a snowflake, you still have a chance on this saturday, february 26. in berkeley, a big rig jackknifed on interstate 80 at university avenue in oakland. we do know that the initial reports from the california highway patrol indicate that anywhere from three to four drivers may have crashed in the same spot as that jackknifed big rig and one of the cars is stuck in the embankment off the highway. we are watching that one for you, but we do want you to be careful if you're traveling in the area. the chp isn't saying whether or not it's to blame yet, but we do know that it's cold enough for
7:01 am
ice on the roadways. we'll talk about those dangerous driving conditions in just a moment. in the meantime, snow in the bay area t flakes are exciting, but the record low temperatures may be the thing to take your breath away. check out the snowflakes falling on to this patio in daly city last night. people were nice enough to send in their pictures and videos to share with us and in san bruno, light snow on tom of a car. even the dogs were surprised. what's in store for the next 24 hours, is something we could be talking about for a while. we have team coverage this morning, rob is tracking the very chilly temperatures but we have our own "today in the bay" christie smith in san francisco where snow fell and is snow falling? that's the question we want to know, christy. >> reporter: i can start by saying it is cold, cold, code here at the top of twin peaks, but after all this buildup, the question was would it really
7:02 am
happen? i'm going to show you what happened out here this morning. there are people standing around here like it's christmas morning. here's what we found, not exactly sure whether this is frost or snow on the rooftops down there, but it certainly looks good up here this morning. but last night, we did get some snow flurries. a woman got out her camera and sent us some video from last night. there was even a little bit of a traffic jam, people trying to get up here to see this amazing sight. the last time it snowed in san francisco was way back in 1976. so even just a little bit, even the thought of it was quite a thrill. >> we drove up from your house and we were just waiting for it to start coming. and as we stepped out of the car, it started snowing harder. it stopped for a couple seconds
7:03 am
then and another burst of snow came down. it was fun seeing it in san francisco because it's something that we never see. >> reporter: i can remember snow in the east bay from recent seasons, but san francisco, that's just a totally different deal. you can't see it because it's behind my cameraman, but i can tell you there are people walking around here with cameras. we're told there is one woman who actually spent the night up here hoping she would wake up in a winter wonderland. it's not exactly that, but it sure is cold and people are excited here. >> we were talking about that jackknifed big rig in oakland and temperatures that are low enough for ice on the roads, as you made your way up to twin peaks, how were the roads. >> reporter: when we came up, we didn't really see any ice or any
7:04 am
frost out. we got the assignment that if we did see it, we would shoot it. it certainly was cold, but it wasn't icy, certainly in different parts, i know i came in from the east bay where i live and i can tell you that my car was totally frosted over and it was a different story over there, so i guess it kind of depends where you are. >> we'll be checking in with you in a few minutes to see if you get a couple more flakes. rob will tell us if that is going to happen today if you slept through it last night. >> i also want to show you early this morning as i came here to the station in san jose. this is the video from just outside the doorstep here in san jose. and if you look closely, there's a few wet snowflakes mixed in. that was part of some heavier showers that came rolling off the santa cruz mountains dropping some snow. as we go to the radar, you can see things have dried out at
7:05 am
least inland, you can see on the inland side of the santa cruz mountains, you can see some showers here on the approach, a little bit more snow on the way and you can see some of that snow mixing in with probably some rain here, close to 1,500 feet, just off the coast there of half moon bay, and very cold air dropping down from north to south. look at our temperatures this morning. and christy pointed it out, in the east bay and the north bay, we're seeing 20s and 30s this morning. in fact the connector to interstate 80 has been shut down due to ice. 35 in san jose, 38 in san san francisco, new record low in oakland, 32 degrees. so between now and 10:00 this morning, we will have icy roads, that is the bigger concern this morning for the north and east bay valleys, still a chance for a few flurries this morning, isolated chance this afternoon and all signs point to an even
7:06 am
colder night. lookout for icy roads. 40s and 50s today, and we'll show your our complete forecast in just a few moments. >> we talked about what's happening in berkeley this morning at interstate 80, looking live at oakland, you can see lots of blue skies, but clouds and very, very chilly temperatures this morning and those cold temperatures are making for some icy roadways scattered about the bay area. california highway patrol is reporting trouble in berkeley, that is the scene of the jackknifed big rig, 80 is open, but the area around there is slick. in contra costa county, westbound highway 4, just west of cummings skyway is icy, several drivers spun out.
7:07 am
in solano, american canyon near i-80, people reporting patches of ice and drivers not paying attention. do be careful out there, we are watching those areas for you as well. if it is snowing here in the bay area, then you know it is good news for those folks in the sierra, at least the ones that are already there, for the folks headed there, not so much. let's take a live look this morning, later on this morning we'll take a live look at the caltrans camera near tahoe, but this is what you can expect on the slopes. >> you guys excited for all this skiing? >> they have very excited, but this is what you have to sit through if you're headed up now. cars that are near a stand still as the snow fell last night. >> we got snowed out.
7:08 am
the highway got closed and we're going nowhere. >> 500 amtrak passengers waited for crews to deal with ice and snow on the railways as well. with this much snow even the locals are struggling to get around. the power could be out for some of the folks there in the sierra for days. of course they're used to it, they have the generators ready to go. we have got rain, wind and snow and how about a tornado into the mix? another weather surprise in northern california, this is home video shows a tornado spotted near rancho cordova which is near sacramento. wind whipped metal shards in the area and a 50-foot redwood tree. no one was hurt. moving on now, the clothing store known as no fear is filing for chapter 11 bankruptcy protection. no fear is an action sports clothier that sells various
