where there's rain moving across other parts of the bay area, around the east bay. but it's enough to wet the wipers and the streets, but we won't see this having a major impact for the day. we'll talk about what to expect as another storm system moves in tomorrow afternoon. and mike has two kinds of green on the map. >> one we love. that's the green speed sensors moving well around the bay. light traffic, obviously, right now, and continuing for the spring breaks rotating this week in the south bay. there's the other green, the radar having shown activity come through this area, and now there's a chance with the road weather that you might get damp roads. upper east shore freeway, but despite that fact, minimal impact. we're showing your typical speeds and drive times. >> thank you very much. now we go to breaking news in santa clara where a driver plunged his car into a pool in a
home there. >> bob redell joining us live to explain what happened here. bob, good morning. >> reporter: good morning to you, sam and laura. as you can see, this happened behind me at a home at the corner of calabasas in the city of santa clara. we get a sense the driver was traveling fast. you can see this gate in the foreground. that was crashed through. the driver then went through a wooden fence, and in the back there, there is a swimming pool. with our own eyes, we can see that a vehicle is submerged in the pool. apparently in the middle of the pool. and because it's so deep, and it's submerged, it's going to fake some time to get the car out of there. it appears they're going to have to bring in a crane or something as a tow truck would not do. the homeowner was not at home at the time. the slanta clara police and fire department did respond to this call and they did talk with the driver. now, the driver did tell us that
he, according to him, that he took too big of a turn and fell asleep at the wheel. according to a colleague who is here at the scene, he says his colleague tells us that the police did give him a breathalyzer and he apparently passed as there was no arrest made of this driver. a young man who was in this vehicle that crashed through the fence of this home. fortunately, he was not hurt. he was sopping wet but was not taken to the hospital, and again, it appears there have been no arrests in this accident that took place with this car now in the middle of this pool at this home here at calabasas. reporting live here in santa clara. >> thank you very much. 4:33 right now. grief and heartache in southern california as people are trying to under why a gunman went to his estranged wife's school and killed her along with an 8-year-old student. the gunman, cedric anderson, walked into a san bernadino

social media, everyone is talking about this video that shows airport officers in chicago dragging the man from his seat. they took him off the plane because no one wanted to volunteer to give up their tickets. they say while the video is extreme, it is within the airline's rights. >> because the airline pretty much holds all the cards in this. when you buy a ticket, there's an implied consent that can be up to 50 pages long for some carriers and they have all the benefits of it. >> united's ceo has written a letter saying he's upset about what happened. he also justified what hamanned saying the man had been increasingly disruptive and belligerent. >> 4:36. a mask, a gun, and a robbery in the east bay. coming up, what help this surveillance video might play in helping police find their plan in an armed attack. thht ion r aask ard rbern ssuni

get a look farther to the south there, some spotty light rain. so this is kind of what we'll see as we go throughout the morning. some of those showers moving through cordelia. as you head to fairfield, it's a little heavier there, and now the seven-day forecast coming up on the bottom of the screen shows spotty showers today, tomorrow, and thursday. we'll talk about that. but as you head across the south bay, some light rain there as well. once again, just enough to make the streets wet and also around gilroy, you're seeing a nice little sprinkle coming down at this point. this is what we'll see throughout the day. off and on showers. some of the showers in the north bay may be just enough to measure in the few hundredths of everyone of rain today. not going to see heavy downpours. for tomorrow, we're going to start to see the winds picking up. still cloudy skies. a little bit of mist and drizzle. then some heavier rain moving through tomorrow evening into early thursday morning. we'll still see some lingering showers on thursday.
it does stay unsettled with off and on rain for the next couple days. if you are planning to head out to the giants game tonight, be prepared for spotty showers moving through, especially later on through the evening and temperatures will be cool also, only reaching to the mid 50s. as we get a look at what's happening, a wider view, and also for the sierra, light showers and even a little bit of light snow. here's a live look outside at squaw creek. the temperatures definitely cold enough for some snow. it's 28 degrees. we'll start to see more moisture moving in, and look at how much snow we could see over the next couple days. at least a foot of snow in spots lieng king vale may have over 20 inches of snow. this epic snow season continues and we'll still see wet weather around the bay area. looking at san francisco, the temperature trend shows we will be in the low 60s today. upper 50s for the next few days, and then a little clearing between friday and saturday. and for the rest of the bay
area, still going to see some scattered sprinkles inland. highs in the low 60s today. and for saturday, that looks like the best day this weekend. as we head over to mike, spring break is still in rotation, right? >> that's right. so this week, we're looking at least san jose unified. that will have a big impact on your morning commute. there are still other schools rotating around the bay as well. that's why we're seeing lighter traffic flow for the morning commute especially. afternoons and evenings still get a good volume of traffic out there. here, looking at the tri-valley and the east bay. looking over towards the bay bridge toll plaza, no problem. 680 flows nicely. hard for me to say that. i'll show you some choices you can make and you can look at the stream. no reason to stumble for your commute out of the altamonte pass. a smooth drive. 34 minutes, that's the green number over there. but the purple number at the top. that's if you take the 580. why don't you do that? it would save you ten minutes.
