11:01 am
>> it's going to be very hit or miss as we get a look now at the radar. some of that rain moving across the peninsula and into the east bay, then kind of skipping around the south bay from san jose, but you see some of the sprinkles moving from the santa cruz mountains over toward gilroy and morgan hill. the storm rangers, mountain doppler on san bruno mountain at this point moving around the bay area if need be, but right now we have it parked here to get the best view of the north and the south bay. so, here's a live look at our doppler radar truck. we are the only ones with this and we are able to get a view of what's happening aa round the bay area. as we get a look now at this, we see that the light rain is moving from union city over toward pleasanton as well as sunol. this light rain will continue to move through as we are seeing a little bit of some breaks here and there. also for the south bay as this rain is moving from the santa cruz mountains to morgan hill. this is what we will see throughout the day, mostly some light activity, but a bigger
11:02 am
storm system this weekend. i'll be talking more about that coming up in a few minutes. >> all right. it's going to be busy here. thank you very much, kerry. a sonoma county woman safe this morning after fast moving water from the north bay created a close call. you saw the car a second ago behind me. this is another warning for drivers as the sign clearly instructed them not to try and pass through. nbc bay area's pete is in santa rose a with the efforts to save her. pete? >> reporter: good morning to you guys back in the newsroom. we're in front of the chp santa rose a offices. i want to show you new video of a rescue this morning. this water, 2 feet of water there, that's near valley ford on highway 1. that is a woman in her mercedes getting stuck in flooded water on that highway. according to chp there were sections that said you should not drive in this area. obviously she did and got stuck. a good samaritan truck driver in that area for assistance to get
11:03 am
her out of the car, here's chp explaining how that worked out. >> one of my local truck drivers was driving by and i asked him to help and he gladly did. drove up to the vehicle, got her out, and brought her down to safety. >> reporter: so the advice is fairly simple, guys, from chp. if you see signs that say flooded area, don't drive around it. pete, nbc bay area news. >> all right, pete. heed those signs. in the meantime, reservoirs across the bay area filling up with these recent rains. this is new video from the reservoir in los gatos. after one day of rain it's now at 82% and that jump comes in just 24 hours. the reservoir also in the south bay is at 85 a% capacity from 79 the day before. >> it looks very good. this morning's flash flood warning in the south bay is over, but some people living in the santa cruz mountains are still on high alert.

>> i was out in the santa cruz mountains this morning where it was fine misty rain. you saw the rain coming down in sheets in san francisco. >> i did. talk about night and day. quite literally and figuratively, it was raining hard overnight, kerry. a lot has cleared up. >> it has cleared up. we've had quite a bit of rained to go along with the wind in the bay area. as we take a live look outside at the golden gate bridge, we're getting a chance to dry out. but we may not be completely done with the rain just yet. for the day there will be times of scattered light showers moving through. here is now at san jose, really missing out on the bulk of the rain, but we are still seeing the potential of some measurable rain as we go through the forecast. that's something we'll be keeping an eye on. and looking at the bigger picture, we have the storm ranger, our mobile doppler radar truck parked on the mountain in san bruno and it's scanning around the bay area to give us an hd view of what is happening as far as that rain coming out of the cloud.
11:15 am
so, doesn't matter if it's a fine mist or heavy down pour, this is able to give us a very detailed look at what's happening as we continue to track this storm moving through the bay area. and once again, a little bit of a break here, but still seeing some light showers moving through the east bay into the tri-valley and that's where we have seen the wet roads at this point as you head out, still going to see some of the showers and you do still need the umbrella. not much rain now in san jose, but it's just to the north of you and as you head up towards mountain view, and we have a steady stream of some light rain as chriss described, a fine mist coming down in the santa cruz mountains. temperatures are still in the low to mid 50s, so, feeling a little bit milder as we tap into that subtropical moisture. this atmosphere bringing several impulses of energy to bring us some more rain. so, still seeing quite a bit of that rain activity as we go into the evening commute. mostly forth north bay while the rest of the bay area doesn't see much of that until later on
11:16 am
tonight. so, still looking at some rain between tonight and early in the morning before some dryer air moves in and we get some clearing throughout the day tomorrow as well as friday. and then the next storm system moves in. that happens on saturday, with a target over the santa cruz mountains of where the heavy est rainfall could be moving through and between saturday and sunday we also have to raise the concern of some flooding. until the system tapers off late monday into tuesday. some of the computer model show potential of several inches of rain here. look at what is going to happen for some of our hill tops and higher elevations. close to 10 inches of rain possible between now and late monday night in the santa cruz mountains. so, in the burn scar areas of the loma fire, that's where we could have some runoff and debris flows. we are all going to get rain here and snow in the sierra. this mixes in with rain that raises the flood concern for them as well, along with that heavy snow coming down. temperature wise it will be cool
11:17 am
the next couple of days. once again, our break is between thursday and friday to prepare for this storm. heavy rain starts to move in on saturday, continues into early next week. a flood threat that will continue for saturday into sunday as well as tuesday with highs reaching the mid to upper 50s. we'll talk more about this, what to expect is coming up a little bit later. sam and chriss? >> now as we head out to brian hickey, he's got a view of what's happening now at i-80 at a donner summit. >> reporter: it's been a rough morning for drivers, cal trans and the california highway patrol here on donner summit. as snow continues to come down, this is donner pass road. the road leads down to sugar bowl ski resort and ski ranch where the resort is having a tough time getting open because of the wind and the amount of snow that's fallen in the last 24 hours. the resort reporting over a foot of snow on top of that, another foot yesterday. so, many resorts picking up 2 feet of snow just in a 24 to
11:18 am
48-hour period. and then rewind another day beyond that and the snow totals now well over 50 inches of snow here in the sierra as they continue to dig out. here at the sugar bowl resort, trying to dig out the parking lot, snowbanks are now the size of a one-story building. there are cars completely buried in snow up here. and with the wind blowing all this new snow around, it's making for a tough drive on interstate 80. i-80 both west and east bound has been shut down and opened again multiple times this morning due to spin outs. now the latest closure due to visibility. if you're heading into sierra, variable conditions. snow level a little bit higher. once you get above the grove, the snow has been coming down and piling up. on did donner summit i'm brian hik you. back to you. >> i hope he has thick socks. snow levels are actually only 50% of average for this time of year. data comes from california's first snow pack survey of the
11:19 am
season which we showed you yesterday this time. water resource workers took a manual measurements yesterday near lake tahoe. put those poles into the ground and see how far they go. state leaders are hopeful, recent storms and more storms this week suggest that the snow pack will improve before amendmenting season ends april. >> it was not that long ago that jerry brown was walking in the same spot on just clumps of dirt. so, pretty exceptional there. rain keeps pouring over the bay area. certainly moving into the weekend and the san francisco international airport preparing for what could be a hectic day here. now kari mentioned the heavy est stuff was this morning. still airport officials are reacting after more than 100 flights were canceled at sfo, wayne and rind being the blame there. similar conditions this morning, there was concern that even more flights could be affected. last night one man spent at least eight hours at the airport. others were delayed more than that. >> it was really stressful just to get the flight and now like i'm here and i have to wait even
11:20 am
longer. >> yesterday the weather did not cause any cancellations in san jose or in oakland. and since more delays are expected today, we're going to bring you updates on that's correct it is a good idea to check in with your airline before you go to the airport. scott this morning talking about the new bells and whistles on the new york stock exchange because they have a replacement for the giant bell. the dow jones continuing a good day yesterday. diaw up right now 62 points to 19,944. >> my kids would have a field day with that one for sure. donald trump says he knows something about the election hacking that the u.s. intelligence community does not and he's promised that he will tell the world. >> trump said he would tell us tuesday or wednesday and scott mcgrew, it's wednesday. >> reporter: and it sounds as if we won't hear mr. trump's secret knowledge today, guys. trump said he wanted to wait until he met with intelligence officials but then claimed this
11:21 am
morning that meeting has been delayed. intelligence agencies tell reporters there was no delay because there was no meeting scheduled. mr. trump this morning also criticized the democratic national committee for its weak security against hackers. he said the democrats had been careless and then said in a tweet, julian assange said the russians did not give him nchgs. now, the dnc recall was hacked. this is the thing he said was careless. julian assange head of wikileaks, they want him to answer sexual assault charges. wikileaks recently denied it is a russian spy operation. bottom line here, sam and chriss, mr. trump will not be telling us the secret information today because of a delayed meeting that the intelligence community says wasn't scheduled in the first place over a hack that wasn't the russians, according to a
11:22 am
manholed man holed up in an embassy. back to you. >> clear as mud. hundreds of crabbers say crabs are hard to come by. there is a ¢0.25 drop in price. crab season opened in waves this year but at the start of the season the price was set at $3. fishermen in half moon bay say a quarter might not seem like a lot, but that is a significant amount of money when thousands of pounds of crabs are involved. >> the raiders are closer to having the new home they want in san francisco. the team announced it will break ground on new arena known as the chase center on january 17th. warriors president rick said the arena is expected to be finished in time for 2019/2020 nba season. the move to the mission bay site has been fought by a number of

11:29 am
could lower the number of cars on the road by 75% in regions like the bay area. there is a big caveat here. that is if commuters would be willing to ride in shared cars with complete strangers. right now in silicon valley 25% of workers share rides physically. this is more of a utopian vision of ride sharing. >> i'd do it but those passengers better not be chatty. >> i thought you were chatty. you don't want to talk to them? >> mind my own business. the rain let up after heavy down pours this morning, but we're not out of the woods just yet. meteorologist kari hall is tracking what's next. >> scattered showers throughout the rest of the day. not so much here. during the evening commute, more rain lining up in the north bay. we'll talk about this and look ahead to the weekend with the next storm. that's coming up. >> plus the san mateo neighborhood on edge. what a suspected burglar has been doing inside people's homes that has their feeling of

11:33 am
some rain moving through there as well as just south of fremont and also for parts of the south bay and extending down into the santa cruz mountains, right over los gatos. this will continue to see some rain on the map here as we go into the rest of the day, but not seeing that heavy activity that we had earlier this morning. it will be our chance to dry out tomorrow and friday before a bigger storm system moves in. i'll detail that coming up in my next micro climate forecast. >> all right, thank you, kari. the roads were treacherous this morning. this was shots 4:00 in the morning, dangerous driving conditions. lots of water pooling on the sides of the highways. and there are several flooded areas in san francisco as well, mostly along 101 and 280 and across the bay area we should say the driver did not shoot. >> no, but i did drive behind some conditions like that this morning. it was very dangerous. all that wind and heavy rain also toppled trees all over parts of the bay area this morning. and this happened in san francisco.
