6:00 am
might have been a process. >> those eggs wet yesterday in the grass because we had rain that moved through right after you got out of church yesterday. and as we are going to start out the week, we have seen some scattered showers. here's a live look outside at san jose. those clouds still hanging overhead, but so far, mostly dry as you drive around the south bay, and the temperature trend for los gatos in the upper 50s and highs reaching into the upper 60s today. but don't expect a lot of sunshine here. a little bit of some rain from san francisco farther to the north. we'll talk about more rounds of rain as we go through the week. that's coming up in about eight minutes. vianey showing how we're seeing slowdowns across parts of the bay area. >> yeah, that's right, kari. the san mateo bridge already starting to see that early morning commute back up, and this is usually pretty typical, although they aren't reporting any accidents on the bridge, which is always good news. let's take a quick look of the maps and see what the drive times are looking like. the metering lights are on.
6:01 am
bound 80 to the bay bridge, about 20 minutes. it did slow down. it was at about 11 minutes five minutes ago. westbound 580 to the richmond bridge, eight minutes. it updated automatically, now we're at 20 minutes, to san mateo bridge. about 12 minutes, westbound 80 to the bay bridge. about 20 minutes, westbound 92, looking clear. it looks like the metering lights are causing backups. back to you. >> all right, don't say we didn't warn you. thank you very much. 6:01. violent protests again in the east bay, and shocking video there. you see a woman being punched. 20 people have been arrested after pro and anti-trump demonstrators clashed in berkeley over the weekend. that video is going viral this morning, showing a president trump supporting punching a protester in the face. >> there could be more arrested.
6:02 am
tell us why. >> reporter: yeah, that's right. berkeley police is handling this investigation. there could be more arrests because they're still reviewing a lot of evidence from video as you just showed and plenty of video from they posted on social media over the weekend. let's show you the scene. this was martin luther king jr. park plaza in berkeley, where all of this took place on saturday. and it was dubbed as a patriots day rally organized by pro-trump supporters, but that quickly turned violent. you can see in the video, a melee between supportering and destrekters of president trump. you see people being pepper sprayed. but so far, berkeley police are reporting that 20 people have been arrested, 11 people injured, and 7 people hospitalized. while all this is taking place next week, you're going to have o outspoken commentator ann
6:03 am
coulter talking on the campus. police are hoping that doesn't turn violent as well. >> we're calling on faculty and students to realize the best way to handle this is if you don't want to hear the person talk, please leave. don't incite violence. >> police are asking anyone with video of the protest to turn it in to police. we're live in berkeley, pete suratos for today in the bay. >> thank you. at the same time we have seen another violent protest in berkeley, the city's mayor and council members will be discussing their police force. it's a community forum called militarization of police. what does it mean for berkeley. that's at university avenue tonight at 6:00. >> in ohio tonight, aman hnt for a suspect. that video shows the gunman who
6:04 am
police have identified as steve stephens getting out of his car, approaching the elderly man. he tells the victim he's about to die because of a woman. he shoots the man at point blank. the woman referred to in the video is apparently stephens' gunman. during a rant in a separate video, he talks about killing other people, too. >> hopefully, i'm going to try as kill as many people as i can. >> we want this to end with as little -- with as much peace as we can bring to this right now. >> after stephens posted his video, it waw viewable for about three hours until facebook removed it and deactivated the account. police so far have not released evidence of other killers. however, they are scheduled to have an update in 6:00 hour. >> happening today, san pablo man accused of shooting and killing his ex-girlfriend in front of her children is expected to enter a plea in court today.

6:07 am
you get a real taste for what you're up against. >> warriors nation now has to wait until wednesday for game two at oracle arena. >> the sharkies in the meantime once again facing an uphill battle to advance in the stanley cup playoffs. edmonton won a hard fought game three last night and they now are down 2-1 in the series. the only goal in this came with nine minutes in the third period. with the 1-0 win, the oilers regain control of the series two games to one. now they come back to the s.a.p. center tomorrow night at the shark tank. >> 607. we have cloudy skies and some scattered showers around the bay area. getting a look now at san jose. it's cloudy there but it's been dry. we're also seeing dry conditions in the peninsula. although we have seen a few showers in the try valley at 56 degrees and look at the visibility in the north bay and in san francisco. some of those cars are kicking up some water. it's gi55 degrees. as we go through the day, expect a high up to 66 degrees in the
6:08 am
peninsula and 66 degrees also in the tri-valley. going to see some low 60s today in the east bay and san francisco. as well as some low 60s in the north bay. but then we'll see several more rounds of rain. might get heavier tonight. we'll talk about that and a look at the microclimate forecast and the temperature trend at 6:12. vianey is tracking some of the slowdowns. >> we're already seeing back up along the bridge toll plaza because they did turn the met metering lights on about half an hour ago. if this is typically what you take to work, you want to leave now because we're definitely seeing slowing about 22 minutes from the bay bridge. all in all, also starting to see some slowing in the north bay. drive times looking like they're slowing down along westbound 37 to lakeville highway, 34 minutes. also slowing along the peninsula as well. right now, southbound 101 to sfo, 13 minutes. southbound 101 to bowers avenue, 20 minutes.

(vianey ad libs)
6:10 am
6:11 am
it's 6:12.
6:12 am
hopefully you had a great weekend and the showers we had yesterday still linger across parts of the bay area. although we have seen much of the rain moving out, we still have clouds left behind over san jose. the temperature trend in evergreen will be at 61 degrees. a nicep by 10:00 and into the upper 60s today. it will be just below where we should be as far as average for this time of year. it's going to go well above this as we go toward the end of the week as the rain clears. more on the temperature trend for the seven-day forecast coming up in five minutes. >> checking your east bay drive times, we are seeing slowing on southbound 680 to vargas road. a 22-minute delay. northbound 580, 3 minutes. >> all right, thank you very much. 6:12. we have new video to show you just into our newsroom of a tornado in eastern nebraska. there it is. this happened just about an hour
6:13 am
south of omaha. at this point, no reports of significant damage, as you see, it does look like it's a pretty remote area there. there was severe weather across parts of the state last night. there were also reports of large hail in the area. >> 6:13. it's that time of year again when the bay area remembers the 1906 san francisco earthquake and fire. the actual anniversary is tomorrow, the remembrance events are starting today. this afternoon, city officials will meet for a luncheon to mark the 111th anniversary. it will also include dignitaries, police, and fire officials. the ceremonies tomorrow begin at 5:12 in the morning when the quake struck. >> incredible that video has survived all these years. >> 6:13. a hunger strike continuing in san jose. a group of housest activists are refusing food until tomorrow's council meeting. they didn't eat all weekend either. tomorrow, they're voting on a protection measure.
6:14 am
city of san jose is considering a law to require landlord to cite a just cause before evicting anyone. no -- what's the name of the evictions? >> unjustified. >> unjustified evictions. the proposal will also push them to be more attendant to complaints. activists are saying they're fighting for the vulnerable. >> it is the woman and children of color. it is our single mothers, our domestic violence survivors that are the most, most vulnerable to these no-cause evictions. >> the california apartment association counters with a statement reading that, quote, san jose already has laws to prevent landlords from evicting tenants for financial gain. the city needs to enforce nose laws rather than create new legislation, more regulations and additional layers of bureaucracy. >> delta may be taking another move toward its rival. the airline will offer passengers up to, listen to this, $10,000, to give up their seats on those overbooked
6:15 am
flights. might make you think this morning. a company memo shows gate agents can offer you up to $2,000 to give up your seat. up from a previous maximum of $800. but supervisors have called in they can up nearly $10,000. >> quite a perk there. >> no kidding. >> united continuing to tweak its rules to make sure what happened doesn't happen again. >> scott mcgrew continues our coverage, and what a deal. >> united now says an employee can't take a seat from a paying passenger no matter what. it also says if the air crews want to fly, they have to show up an hour before the flight. crews often do fly as passengers, they call that deadheading, to get to a flight assignment somewhere else. in the case of the ill-fated flight to louisville, the crew shows up at the last minute after all the passengers had been seated. a young couple from utah claimed thad were forced off a united
6:16 am
flight to costa rica. it would appear the couple sat in the wrong seats, upgrading themselves to a better part of the main cabin. united said they were repeatedly asked to set in the section of the airport they played for. the couple said they were pulled off the plane by u.s. marshals. the airline says there was no u.s. marshal. there's one of those stories we need more detail on. >> wall street is back to work after a long weekend. no trading on good friday. united news there. that company is reporting its profits. speaking of reporting profits, you have to do your own reporting to the irs no later than tomorrow. if you haven't filed your taxes, tuesday is the deadline. normally it's april 15th, but that was a weekend, and then it was a monday, and it was a holiday so it's now tuesday. >> it will bring mobile ordering to all of its stores by the end of the year. starbucks already does that. you order on your phone.
6:17 am
it's so efficient. so many things make this true, it's job killer. you still need a few cashiers, but you need far fewer cashiers. >> that's true. >> a job killer. >> indeed. >> with your name hopefully spelled correctly, unlike starbuc starbucks. >> how can you mess up sam? >> this video, i love this. an easter bunny taking out one of our former past presidents. and he looks so insnlt. don't be fooled by that. george washington in the lead. he gets knocked out. wait a minute. what was that? >> down to the finish line. no. i don't think so. teddy roosevelt. as they hit the homestretch, as they do every home nationals game. the bunny leaping from the stands and knocking down tr, and i guess someone's disqualified.
6:18 am
i don't know who they awarded the in withing race to, but the bunny -- >> that makes me worried about the white house easter egg roll. what if the bunny is there? >> hopefully they swapped out the bunnies. >> he stoop on the ropes like it was a wrestling match. amazing. >> all right, so hopefully your easter wasn't like that. we did have some rain moving in. we are still going to see the lingering showers into your morning commute. and here's the view right now in san francisco. going across the golden gate bridge, and i maums you, it's in there somewhere. we had low visibility in spots and the cars kicking up water. it's 56 degrees. not really all that cool. as the seven-day forecast comes up at the bottom of the screen, we'll have warmer air in the forecast towards the end. this is a look at the richmond bridge as you approach the toll plaza. you can barely see and the rain drops still coming down.
6:19 am
that's what we're seeing across parts of the bay area. we have seen spotty light showers mouving through with much of the accumulating rain across parts of sonoma, marin county, napa county, as well as san francisco where we have gotten up to a quarter inch of rain extending into the east bay where the temperature now is at 58 degrees. 57 in san jose, and 57 degrees also in palo alto with highs reaching 66 this afternoon in morgan hill. also mid to upper 60s in the east bay. i think you still need long sleeves throughout the proon. up to 65 in san mateo, and don't forget the umbrella in san francisco as we'll see more rounds of light rain moving in and also that continuing in the north bay where novato will top out at 65 degrees. as we look at how to plan out the day, a lot of clouds, not much sunshine, and then another round of heavier rain becomes more widespread as we go into late tonight, into early
6:20 am
tomorrow morning, and then we start to see it tapering off. clearing for tomorrow afternoon, and then another round of rain moves in for wednesday afternoon into early thursday. and then after that, we are going to have several days of some dry weather. and i know it's spring break for some schools. if you are planning to head over toward lake tahoe, we're seeing rain showers moving through. we haven't seen much snow with this system and temperatures now in the mid 40s, there will be some additional light snow showers in the next couple days but we had an epic season and it looks like it continues as the temperatures drop during the overnight hours. going to see some clearing here around the bay area. san francisco, upper 60s for the end of the week. look at the inland areas. on sunday, we're up to 78 des, vianey. so that's what we're dreaming about as we start out the morning out there on the roadways. >> i get to give the good news on the weekend wergd. at least for once. usually the rain has been falling on the weekend.
6:21 am
palo alto, smooth commute along high 101. southbound and northbound looking pretty good and traffic maps starting to show that early on traffic at this hour. sun:21. 580 still seeing the slowing and it doesn't look like it's going to clear up any time soon. we're also spotting some backup along 101 northbound in morgan hill area. martin avenue, stretching all the way to main avenue. so we're definitely seeing backup, although they haven't reporting any traffic collisions at this hour. it looks like the south bay drive times aren't being affected too much but we're seeing some slowing. northbound 101, about 21 minutes. northbound 85, about 21 minutes. back to you. >> looking good. thank you very much. >> teens spending a lot of money on food. coming up after the break, find out where your teenager may be dropping most of the cash. a $600 purchase is never delivered. what about a refund? i'm consumer investigator chris chmura.

6:31 am
