6:03 am
morning when fire crews were out in the area putting out thoet fires and those palm trees there was another crew that was putting out another fire about half mile away. now, investigators want to put a stop to this arsonist before anyone gets hurt. so if you know of anything that happened in that area or you saw anything in that area saturday morning or any of the past few weeks you can call the california highway patrol. you can also call the san jose fire department. in san jose, kris sanchez, "today in the bay." >> thanks for the very latest there, kris. at 6:03 right now, to a developing story happening at this hour, overnight isis claimed responsibility for the istanbul nightclub shoot that killed 39 people and wounded scores of others. right now the search for the gunman continues this morning. new video shows glimpses of the gunman moving decisively shooting at home. within minutes he killed dozens. then dropped his weapon and escaped among the fleeing survivors. an american from delaware was shot in the leg but managed to make it out alive.

6:18 am
the way down to just on the owes side of downtown plaserville. if you're heading up highway 50 to go skiing, snowboarding today, chaining up right now this morning is all the way outside of downtown. so this is significant low snow and it's not just basically a novelty. let me show you it is actually i accumulating low snow. this is on the ground here at the apple cafe along highway 50. so what a start to this return to work for some of us, return to the work new year, starting off 2017 with what could be days of snow this morning. it is definitely low snow already falling. it's been falling this way since about 5:00 this morning. great sight to see to kick off a new year, especially if you're a snow lover in tahoe. live along highway 50, mike teselle. >> got to get you some gloves and a cup of coffee from that apple cafe. >> scattered snow up there, rain
6:19 am
down here. >> yeah. we're lost seeing snow in spots like mike and i were talking about. mt. hamilton and you say don't go there because it's slippery and then -- >> watch it on tv. >> yeah. just watch it here. we are taking a look and now at some wet roads as you get a live view at oakland at this point and the drivers are on the roads heading back to work and getting ready for a very soggy week ahead. we will continue to see that rain moving through. and, yes, when we see all of that white here on the radar, that's that low snow happening as you head towards the sierra. you don't even get all the way up the summit and you see that snow coming down. we're also tracking a little bit of snow there in the santa cruz mountains. also mixed in with some rain and some sleet most likely and mt. hamilton snowing. we've seen a little bit on mt. diablo and in the north bay, mt. st. helena. cold weather mixing in with this rain. and most of the roads are wet.
6:20 am
but we're not seeing a pretty good coverage of that. we're seeing it in spots and just off and on. so now as you head down 101 from novato, you will see the showers there. and then also down the peninsula redwood city seeing some light rain. that's where we've had the most accumulation at about tenth of an inch. we're looking at a tenth of an inch of rain or less. then over toward hayward some light showers coming down at this point. it's only 43 degrees in the tri-valley and in the north bay, 35 degrees. so some chilly temperatures heading only up to 52 degrees today. much cooler than average. 49 degrees as well as the east bay. and those showers will continue for today. mostly cloudy skies. and then also seeing the rain getting heavier for tomorrow, starting out in the north bay as that's where we will see the heaviest rain coming down throughout the morning and early afternoon and the rest of the bay area seeing the skalterred showers. another round of rain on
6:21 am
wednesday but then there will be a little bit of a break between thursday night and throughout the day on friday. saturday, another storm system moving in. that continues into sunday as well as monday of next week. and the potential of at least a couple of inches of rain here. for most of the bay area and then it gets heavier as we get toward the weekend. we talked about snow in this sierra. here's a look at how much we could see between now and late sunday night, possibly a southlake a how, 36 inches of snow. and mike is talking about those tire chains you may need if you head this. >> even if you have snow tires and four wheel drive you probably want to pack the chains, but especially if you don't that will be a factor. tike just talked about highway 50, enter tath 80 across the summit. over here closer to the bay a light flow of traffic with mild spots for a little slowing. 101. right about the airport there. and also watch redwood city. we still have that closure for

6:33 am
after the loss in a statement saying the decision was absolutely necessary. that york was disappointed at the team's performance had not lived upations of fans. jim tosula last year, jim harbaugh before that. here's what chip kelly had to say yesterday when his firing was still just a rumor. >> i don't think anything surprises me. so i don't live my life -- i live my life in vision and not circumstances. i control what i can control. what we can control is how we coach our plowers and what we can do with them. if it's good enough it's good enough. if it's not good enough, so be it. >> i have saw some of the worst play calling that i have seen in all 49ers games. i think if he's responsible for it he needs to go. >> i think it might be just a little unfair. he's only had one season and kind of what he was given, i think that maybe he should have another chance, another season or two to try and see what he can do with the team.
6:34 am
>> yesterday the 49ers also fired trent baalke who is general managerer of the team for the past 12 years. fans have lost faith in him in recent seasons. somewhat so someone hired an airplane to fly over the stadium earlier in the season with a banner calling for baalke to be fired. baalke released a statement thanking the york family for the support over the years, calling the 49ers the most storied franchise in all of sports. a first class organization that deserves the very best. reporting live here at santa clara outside levi stadium, bob redell, "today in the bay.." >> thank you very much, bob. in you this morning at 6:34, a man wearing a batman like mask is locked off after standoff with deputies. we've been in touch with the sheriff's department. they just give us new information. they were called to the allen rock transit center with a man with a hundred again. deputies were able to bring that man into custody. they found toy guns on him. san jose police officers have

"today in the bay's" pete suratos is live in san francisco this morning to explain how a new law aims to crack down on distracted driving. everybody is accuse of that at one time or another, pete. >> that's definitely right. good morning to you, laura and scott. yes, there are a lot of distracted drivers. pulling up maybe your map on your phone and you're trying to figure out how to get to your
6:36 am
location. now you cannot use your handheld device while driving. got to mount it like this. we'll work on get that mount but you will have to mount it on the car. it comes to using a gps. that's just a part of this law that they're putting in place in california. really just a crack down on diss tracted driving. you can use it if it's a single tap function if you want to hit the single tap function to answer a phone call you can use it but it has to be mounted. i want to throw out stats from distraction p government website that keeps track of stats. in 2014 more than 3,000 people were killed and 400,000 were injured in car crashes as a result of distracted drivers. five seconds the average time that your eyes are off the road when you are texting. so that's really enough to do some damage while you're on the road. now, as far as fines go for this law your first offense is $20. but if you have a second offense and you're distracted driver, that jumps to $50. live near treasure island, pete
6:37 am
