5:16 am
when a country puts tariffs on imports, that country's citizens pay the tariffs. let me be perfectly clear. we pay the tariff on chinese goods. this is not the first time the president has gotten this wrong. the billions in the treasury came from americans. general motors just announced it will soon reduce the tax credit for customers who are buying an electric car. they joined tesla, which made that announcement before christmas. they have to. the law caps the credit at 200,000 cars, so they're really victims of their own success. car companies and others are calling for washington to extend that credit to encourage more electric car sales. this sunday on my tv show "press here" i'll talk with industry experts about the law. >> there isn't a u.s. manufacturer right now, ford, gm, obviously tesla, that isn't supportive of this. >> so that's pascal romano. marcus and kira, reporter emmy hall is the latest to join our

if you have a hard time remembering passwords get a password manager. third, avoid oversharing your life online. >> that's tough these days. >> use password two, sometimes three. >> abcdefg. >> 1234. don't do that! he shared it with the world. >> i guess don't hit "remind me tomorrow" on the updates every day. >> eventually you'll get locked out. >> here's one thing, get your umbrellas out and rainboots. it's a wet weekend ahead and the rain will carry over into the start of the work week, which will mean a monday morning commute that's messy. san francisco we have a pretty picture there. temperature, cold but we're running a few degrees warmer at this hour in some spots, including oakland and hayward and into the afternoon, we're certainly going to get an increase in cloud cover, that will be our first sign 41
5:19 am
degrees by 9:00 a.m. in through concord. everywhere else we're topping out into the 50s so once again, the temperatures will be comfortable but cool, as we head in towards the afternoon. let's talk about the big changes ahead. we have satellite radar right now. you can see we have some clouds especially in through the north bay, starting to roll on in. we have an active pacific and our storm ranger will be busy this weekend, as we get ready to track that incoming rain. our mobile doppler radar will do a fantastic job of giving us the timing and the highest resolution data. let's take you to the futurecast. this rain is expected to move in overnight for the north bay, so the north bay has a good chance of seeing some showers, and then early morning saturday, that big cold front, the main storm out of this will start sweeping on through and that's when we'll see heavier pockets of rain, including major snowfall for the sierra. this is going to be our first storm of the season. behind this cold front, we're tracking gusty conditions, a chance of seeing thunderstorms and by monday 11:p.m., monday morning we'll get an additional system that will track on
5:20 am
through. right now, the higher elevations expected to see the most of this with the coastal mountains between two to three inches. we have an update on how the roads are doing. mike, how is the situation out there? overall traffic flow is nicely, but this shot shows you what's going on for the nimitz, our photographer ethan is trying to get a better position, showing you the flares and the right side of the screen is nimitz northbound,'s he's standg on the nimitz freeway where you shouldn't, but he can. someone for some reason was on the freeway and a hit-and-run happened. that person was killed and we don't know anything else about that as far as the details go. the hit-and-run is being investigated, and these folks with the headlights are getting
5:21 am
off of northbound 808 at fremont cushing. we'll show you our traffic cam are to give you context approaching northbound 880 coming up. the dark patch here would normally be lit up by a stream of headlights coming off of mission boulevard and joining on with the freeway. in the last few minutes that's completely blankd o lly blanked. they stopped the traffic passing warm springs boulevard and headed onto the freeway. the north shot off the left side is where tesla is and the cars are forced off the freeway once again. warm springs boulevard, fremont boulevard, you can get over there on either side of the freeway but do not use that portion of the nimitz. the rest of the bay looks really good, until you get to san jose, and north 87, just by the airport, approaching the merge with 101 and trimble, there is a crash, a car has overturned on the freeway, and we have two of your four lanes blocked and that is the jam. skyport you get on to city streets if that's where you're exiting, good. if not, you'll jog around to 101. back to you. thank you, mike.

5:32 am
the last half hour we've seen traffic stop coming over from mission and i believe they're forcing traffic on to warm springs boulevard, which is one of your alternates. there is warren avenue on the other side. over the freeway, take fremont boulevard koord kato, cushing and the like. note the surface streets there. you get to auto mall parkway you can cut back over toward 808 itself if you need to. we have information on the scene, it sounds like a gruesome one. damian trujillo is out there. you confirmed it was a hit-and-run crash. >> reporter: we're here with sergeant ted montez of the chp hayward division. this was a hit-and-run, we think we have one of the drivers who may have struck the victim. >> there is a possible involved driver at a location away from here, he's standing by for us. we're sending units over to inspect his vehicle and to speak with him as well. the initial reports were, though, that he was a secondary vehicle that had struck the pedestrian that we have down
5:33 am
here. we're still unaware of the initial driver that struck this pedestrian. >> reporter: you have no idea what the victim was doing in the middle of the highway? >> none whatsoever. we had brief reports there was a pedestrian down in the roadway on the freeway here. >> reporter: last question, you're pushing cars off of cushing and back on to 880. >> we are. we're trying to alleviate traffic. we've been told the backlog is two miles at this point to the area of dixon landing. we're working with caltrans obviously, you can see the coroner just arrived on scene. we're in the final stages of cleaning up, documenting the scene and collecting physical evidence, and then we'll open the lanes back up. >> reporter: within the next hour? >> we're thinking the next hour, yes. >> reporter: thank you, sergeant, ted montez of the chp. we'll keep you updated throughout the morning. >> thank you for the update. we sent out this push alert before 4:30 this morning. you may have heard it while you were sleeping. download our nbc bay area app to get all the breaking news you need to know overnight. right now, we want to go to

this woman who attacked a jogger on a popular trail. "today in the bay's" pete suratos joins us live from oakland, where it all took place, and pete, the victim claims she was bitten by the other woman. >> reporter: yes, good morning to you, kira. quite a claim by this victim, saying the attacker bit her on the forearm. in fact, we want to show you the picture, this is the picture they showed police of that bite on her forearm, a pretty nasty bite when you look at it there. the information we're getting from the east bay regional parks police which is handling this investigation, is that the attack happened roughly around 10:30 a.m. they say the jogger was wrapping up a run here in oakland just off of skyline boulevard on the goldenrod trail near the riding stables, she notices a woman with two dogs. she claims one of the dogs tried to bite her, when she pepper sprayed the dog. it stopped the dog but apparently didn't stop the dog owner. >> in addition to the bite there was a certain amount of punching and kicking when the dog owner

5:38 am
r vieira is in custody with assault with a deadly weapon. he says he has proof to show he was not the aggressor. more snow is in the forecast for the sierra this weekend and maybe it will raise water levels in california. according to the first snowpack survey of 2019, levels are below average. the department of water resources is blaming global warming. however, it did say the snowpack is higher than last year at this same time. the increased amount is crucial, because that snow supplies about 30% of the water here in california. all right, i believe we'll send it over to mike now, with a check of the traffic. >> yes, kira, let's look at what we have. we have a fluid situation out there, so we had a couple of live cameras on the scene, they're moving around right now, but we still have our traffic camera. i just got off the phone with damian, i apologize that's why i was not able to talk that instant you came over to me. there's tesla, this is northbound 880, no traffic
5:39 am
flowing whatsoever. what happened is chp has just closed off the fremont cushing off-ramp, where folks were able to get out of the backup. no one is getting off the freeway northbound 880 at tesla. the coroner is on scene and they are gathering whatever evidence there may be off of the exit area as well. they had to sweep the entire freeway and now the off-ramp. once they get the evidence and complete the investigation and once the coroner gives the okay with the details that he or she needs, then they can start to clear the debris from the area, and then they can begin to reopen the nimitz. now, as damian just learned from the chp on the scene, they hope that can be over the next hour but we'll say the worst case we heard was 7:30, they were going to reopen. we're hoping for the next hour. meanwhile in san jose another crash north 87 jams things up past the airport approaching that 101 merge. i'll give you details coming up. the rest of the bay completely clear. >> i'm impressed, how well you did with running and talking at

generate good amounts of snowfall for the sierra. saturday at 10:00 p.m., we get pockets of rain but it won't be as widespread into early sunday morning as well. i think your best chance will be to start moving things out early sunday morning, if you have to move. 1:00, look at the moisture just behind that. we get another round of showers moving in at about 5:00, and look how heavy the rain gets in the north bay. tomorrow dinnertime into early monday morning for your travel commute, we'll get to see another round of heavy rain. estimated rain totals for saturday and sunday, coastal mountains two to three inches. the north bay one to two inches and everywhere else just a little under an inch. your hour-by-hour wind gusts also a big factor as the cold front passes through. santa rosa, san francisco, the strongest gusts expected to be early saturday morning and i want to take you quickly through the estimated snowpack, statewide at about 67% and tracking an additional possibly 18 to 20 more inches of snow for the sierra. it's going to be a wet weekend,
