6:01 am
skies, but start. by recess time, it's going to pan out to be an overall nice day with a combination of sun and high clouds. but by 1:00, it is expected to be warm today. we're still going to be in the 70s. so keep that in mind in terms of what to pack for clothing, light clothing. something they can shed throughout the day, and then of course, tomorrow and friday, going to see a change in the forecast because we're tracking rain. you might want to start whipping out the rain boots again, but mike, i know you're tracking an accident in fremont. >> that's right. we have one crash in fremont, which has been a bigger issue. 880 slowed down quite a bit. the rest of the bay, the freeways move well. we have a big crash in san jose we're also tracking, but this is blocking a major freeway. two lanes are blocked. two lanes are open south 880 atto mall parkway. look at all the slowing off the dumbarton bridge. waze tells us we can get a good advantage here from union city down past the scene of the crash to auto mall. it's taking 45 minutes.

6:04 am
florida soon. it's no longer a matter of if she'll be released from the jail in dublin but more of a matter of when. we can't say exactly what's in the new court durhams. they were filed yesterday and it said she waived her right to a rehearing next week in front of a judge, and the judge also agreeing to cancel the hearing. this means she won't fight extradition to florida to continue her court proceedings. remember, just back in march, that oakland federal judge ruled she could be released on a $500,000 bond, but that was later revoked by a florida judge. now, salman is a native of the east bay, and she was charged for aiding her husband, omar mateen, the shooter responsible for killing dozens of people in that deadly pulse night club shooting in orlando last year. now, salman was arrested in january of year. now, whenever she is released from the jail we're standing in front of in dublin, she's going to be transferred to florida for further court proceedings. >> thanks for the latest there.

6:10 am
the area. but all in all, a fairly nice day. but if you suffer from allergies, maybe not so much. a quick check of today's pollen report. trees right now high. grass, moderate. mold and weeds are low. the tree pollen type that's going to be bugging you the most, as of now, oak, mulberry, and pine. i know we are tracking some rain in the forecast. so we are, of course, hoping that that helps out in that pollen report. but let's go out and get a check of the roads with mike. >> all right, we do have light traffic all around the bay. continuing for the spring break rotation. we see right now in the tri-valley, a lighter traffic because the schools are off. a new crash in san jose. i'll track that for 101, but mild slowing. a lot of slowing. one spot for fremont. 880 jams up all the way south to auto mall parkway. two left lanes blocked in both cases. it looks like they may have cleared the crash at auto mall.

the historic montgomery hotel, attached to the old hotel. preserving some of the history there. >> most definitely. 6:16. one of the most talked about silicon valley start-ups appears to have failed to pak payroll. >> scott mcgrew, nothing short of chilling news for employees. >> it certainly is. there are a lot ofs your company might be in trouble, but no bigger sign that payday comes and goes and you get paid. bloomberg is reporting le eco missed payday for its employees. we see le eco's san jose ribbon cutting just last year. this is a huge company. it was going to make tvs and cell phones. even cars. bloomberg says paychecks due last friday, payday, did not come until yesterday. le eco tells bloomberg it had trouble moving money from china to the u.s. le eco had planned a tech camp in san jose so big it was almost its own city.
6:17 am
and just last fall, le eco had an apple-like unveiling of all its technology in an event in san francisco. bigger and more grand than anything apple did,ing in four languages and showing off the world's largest consumer tv. and that electric car was partnering with faraday future to build. speaking of electric cars, tesla continues to skyrocket on the stock market. the company's stock crossed $300 a share on tuesday. other auto stocks slipped on slower sales. we have a big jobs report coming friday, and our usual sneak peek is a happy one indeed. adp which prints out many of the americans paychecks says private payrolls added 263,000 jobs in march. that's very good news for friday'ses number. president trump has a peculiar relationship with the jobs number and the unemployment report. he often says the number is fake and said something similar yesterday in washington.
6:18 am
the number is not fake. sean spicer has pointed out the president says it's a lot less fake than it used to be now that it favors him. even yesterday, he was getting a lot of details on how the jobs number works wrong. so we'll hope to continue to educate him. >> all right. >> we would like to see him hit it out of the park. thank you very much. >> speaking of hitting it out of the park, you know who does that well, madison bumgarner. he's donating the helmet he wore when he hit two home runs on opening day to the hall of fame. >> that was kind of the backup plan. he was asked to donate the bat he used. his golden bat. but he wanted to keep that for himself. i think i can understand that. he becomes the first pitcher ever to hit two home runs on opening day. he did it this last sunday. by the way, the giants minor league team, the san jose giants -- don't know why i screamed that -- kick off their
6:19 am
season in sacramento. >> if you have never been to a san jose giants game, those are so fun to take the kids to. >> that's another one i have to go to. i have to get up on my bay area sports. >> how many baseball games do you go to? you have your little sluggers as well. >> i go to two games a week for little league. exactly. i work the snack shack. i love when people are like, waite, how do i know you. >> oh, we have the hook-up. i like that. you're not going to need snowcones, you're going to be able to make them at least in tahoe because with this incoming storm, we're tracking a lot of snowfall and strong gusty winds and rain. but first, let's talk about that temperature trend for san francisco. 54 degrees right now. if you notice, a lot of clouds on that temperature trend. that's because those overcast skies paired with high clouds and sunshine by midafternoon, by 11:00, looking at 65 degrees. by 1:00, look at this. 68 degrees. san francisco is going to warm up quite nicely. san jose right now, 55 degrees.

6:21 am
locally, no major problems for the peninsula. light traffic all over. this crash in san jose, wanted to mention, 101, there is a fender bender creating a little backup. but look how light the traffic is. look how bad the east bay traffic is. southbound 880 jamming up out of union city all the way down. past the scene at mallory. another at auto mall parkway. let's show you the advantage. we have a partnership with waze. powered by google over there. you know that company. 880 frommian city all the way past the scene. 53 minutes registering. i can save you a half hour. so can waze. it will guide you to fremont boulevard. that's one off your major roadways through the area. a major advantage for you if you join the waze team, go to the waze app, click on the magnifying glass, click on your name at the top of the screen and then scroll down teams. you'll find nbc bay area wazers. that's your team. that's your community on the road, guys. take us with you. >> we need to get team shirts now. right? >> mike, the team leader.

6:47 am
that we can. but there is video out there that lefmany of us in the newsroom absolutely speechless. it is awful stuff. the white house issued this statement. today's chemical attack in syria against innocent people, including women and children, is reprehensible and cannot be ignored by the civilized world. these heinous actions by the bashar al assad regime are a consequence of the past administration's weakness and irresolution. president obama said in 2012 that he would establish a red line against the use of chemical weapons, then did nothing. the united states stands with our allies across the globe to condemn this intolerable attack. now, it is extremely rare for a white house, any white house, to issue a statement in the name one president that mentioned a second past president. it's also not clear from the statement what our policy is going to be. is the use of chemical weapons crossing a line? president obama drew a line and
6:48 am
ignored it. what will president trump do? past statements from trump indicate he's against taking action. president obama, he wrote in 2013, do not attack syria. there is no upside and tremendous downside. save your powder for another important day. meanwhile, north korea has launched another ballistic missile just days before president trump and ease president xi meet in florida. let me clear, this is a north korean test, but it's not the latest test. it takes a couple days for north korea to release the video. this changes the agenda for the two presidents. trump wanted to talk about trade. now, north korea has got to go to the top. secretary of state rex tillerson responded with this, the united states has spoken. enough about north korea. the state department's statement on the matter doesn't have a lot of words, but it speaks paragraphs. no more negotiations. all options are on the table. this aimed at much at china, guys, as north korea. back to you. >> thank you very much, scott.
