6:01 am
are clear. first snowflakes falling at the diablo range so there could be a nice dusting of light snow not too much. but it's cold enough at higher elevations that any precipitation could turn to snowflakes. we are seeing lingering snowflakes across the sierra. you can see satellite-radar most of the action is breaking up. check out this crescent moon. mount vaca camera. nice clear conditions. we have a lot more clouds out there. but that's why it's so cold across the north bay. in santa rosa, 35 degrees. so you just dropped another degree. 48 in san jose. san francisco 49. 40s in livermore. a lot of those valley locations in the north bay, though, right near that freezing mark, we are in the 30s for many spots and then the wind adds to that chill factor. we are looking at oakland sustained winds at 14 miles per hour. gianna? >> speaking of the wind, wind advisory still in effect for some of our bay area bridges. it's been a pretty tough ride
6:02 am
out there on this thursday morning. we are going to head to a traffic along 280 this morning northbound at pagemill road. three lanes are blocked. injury accident. the two left lanes and the far right lane that are shut down so that will leave one lane as traffic squeezes through there for this accident. so a lot of spectator slowing, as well. we are seeing some significant delays northbound pagemill road to black mountain road 72 minutes. that's a tough ride this morning. 101 all green. use that as an alternate. that's your best bet. 101 will start to get busier as the morning commute heats up but for now a much better choice. use caltrain commuting to the south bay or vice versa. so 84 minutes now is inching up very quickly for the drive time pagemill road to black mountain road. we'll keep an eye on that. reports of a significant brush fire on the right shoulder southbound 680 at capital. we are seeing some spectator slowing as a result.
6:03 am

6:04 am
on monday night gunfire on highway 4 westbound near bailey. no injuries but chp is looking for suspect and motive. chp says these shootings are part of an alarming trend. the bay area averages about one freeway shooting per week. and according to highway patrol, most are tied to games gangs. cities and counties have pushed for more cameras along freeways to catch the shooters. surveillance systems have been approved for stretches of i-80 and highway 4. but in this area, there's no camera right now. but chp still investigating again. there are a lot of questions. we are working to get more information. they haven't said motive or if they had any suspects or if anybody was injured. live in concord , jessica flores, kpix 5. fremont police say they will not release any video of a recent officer-involved shooting. it happened last thursday on fremont boulevard between

6:06 am
cohen made a brief comment to cbs news wednesday following fbi raids on his homes and office earlier this week. >> not worried at all. familiar with the search warrants tell cbs news the documents mentioned president trump's name several times. sources who have seen the warrants say it appears to them that the real target of the raids was president trump. one source called it a search and destroy mission. >> how are you? >> reporter: cbs news confirms the search warrant allowed authorities to look for records concerning the release of the 2005 "access hollywood" tape in which mr. trump was heard making comments about women. fbi agents were also looking for information about money paid to two women who claim they had an affair with mr. trump before he was president. early yesterday, the president added to speculation he may try to fire special counsel robert mueller and deputy attorney general rod rosenstein. but this morning, he tweeted, quote, if i wanted to fire robert mueller in december as
6:07 am
reported by the failing "new york times," i would have fired him. just more fake news from a biased newspaper. >> the president certainly has been clear that he has a very deep concern about the direction that the special counsel and other investigations have taken. >> reporter: a group of senators introduced a bill wednesday that would protect the special counsel if the president moved to fire him. the raids stem from information gathered during the course of mr. mueller's investigation into russian meddling but is part of a separate federal investigation run by the fbi's public corruption unit. a few hundred california national guardsmen will soon be deployed to the u.s./mexico border. kpix 5's jackie ward live in the newsroom with more. reporter: this morning, we finally know how governor brown has responded to a request from the white house. and he is cooperating but not without strings attached. president trump is pleased. in a tweet sent out at 6 a.m. eastern daylight time, the president said: national guard to the border. thank you, jerry. good move for the safety of our country!"

governor brown has agreed to deploy 400 more troops to he current fig >> reporter: governor brown agreed to deploy 400 troops to increase the fight against transnational crime. they will not be adhering to president trump's orders. a partial excerpt from brown's statement reads, this will not be a mission to build a new wall. it will not be a mission to round up women and children or detain people escaping violence and seeking a better life. an immigration attorney is skeptical about these additional troops making a difference. >> i don't think that they are interested in practical solutions. i think they are interested in posturing. >> reporter: this is not a popular move in the minds of all the democratic gubernatorial candidates. in a politico survey last week, they all said they wouldn't send more troops to the border. so far they have not commented publicly on this matter. it may be a while until we see troops stationed there. california got this request a week ago and in the past has taken months before troops are
6:09 am
positioned where they have been ordered to go. in the newsroom, jackie ward, kpix 5. a debate over sanctuary status is heating up with several cities supporting a lawsuit against our state. next month santa clarita will decide if it will back the lawsuit. this comes after several cities in orange county joined the growing movement. last month, attorney general jeff sessions announced the trump administration would be suing the state over the law that limits police cooperation with i.c.e. a new poll shows that 70% of californians are concerned that federal immigration enforcement will affect undocumented students. while 65% of californians support the designation of public school districts as sanctuary safe zones. lawmakers recently released a policy guide intended to protect students from i.c.e. enforcement at school. details what school faculty should do if immigration agents show up on campus or if a child's parent has been detained or deported. it's about 10 minutes

6:14 am
much higher in the future. back in 2012 the project was estimated to cost $68 billion. at today's meeting the high- speed rail authority is expected to release its latest business plan. let's jump to the roads. it's been busy this morning. we have a traffic alert in effect. i want to get you updated on busy conditions here northbound 280 at pagemill road. injury accident. we have three lanes completely shut. so the far two left lanes and the right lane are totally shut. we are seeing only one lane there that's letting traffic through so you have a big backup there. it's improving just a bit. 44 minutes now is your drive time. 6 miles per hour some spots. use 101 as an alternate and foothill to get around it. avoid 280 if you can. use caltrain if you want to commute from the south bay to the peninsula. that's a good choice. southbound 880 at "a" street, this is reported by chp. they are heading to the scene.
6:15 am
at least one lane is blocked and this accident you can see traffic is building as a result. a lot of red on our sensors there with delays now 20 minutes from 238 down to decoto road. if you are working your way along 880 in hayward, you can see traffic is starting to back up slow conditions, looks like both directions starting to load up a bit, as well. and we are seeing delays at the bay bridge. we had earlier trouble spots around grand. that's been cleared. metering lights are on. and sluggish there backed up almost to the maze at this point. but our drive times don't look too bad. 14, 15 minutes to go from the maze into san francisco. into san francisco. westbound 80 at powell street, a couple of cars there stacked up. a little slow and go conditions there but overall that commute along the eastshore freeway is bearable towards the bay bridge. just east of there, though, four separate accidents reported one right around texas street. they are being cleared to the right shoulder but it is causing a big backup there as you work your way along westbound 80 coming out of fairfield. so give yourself some extra time there. busy drive times by the
6:16 am
carquinez bridge. here's a live look right now right near -- this is in oakland near the bay bridge toll plaza and check it out. here's that waning crescent moon a sign of the clear conditions out there and also the cold conditions. clear skies and cold conditions. this is what it feels like in many areas, windchill factors, mount tam feels like 24 degrees. it's cold and windy. so we have seen gusts around 40, 45 miles per hour overnight and early this morning. those gusts are going to continue throughout the day. 49 degrees this is the actual temperatures but when you add the wind it feels colder so you want a heavier jacket this morning. a lot of the north bay have
6:17 am
temperatures close to freezing. here's our wind speeds now in oakland at 14. san francisco 13. it's been breezy through san francisco and oakland through those berkeley hills, as well. and then in concord it's calmed down but in antioch, 11 miles per hour sustained winds. just sustained winds so the gusts are higher. again, around 40, 45-mile-per- hour gusts. here's the futurecast for the winds. we are going to continue to see strong conditions right along the coastline and through the east bay hills the north bay hills. pretty much gusty all day long until about 9, 10:00. this is all that's left of the cold front that passed through. here's what's going on also. some snowflakes. that's what's coming down just east of san jose and milpitas. snow across that area. then some raindrops right off the coast. not necessarily noticing raindrops this morning. we still have those clear conditions out there. doesn't look like we are going to see much in the form of rainfall, but this is what we got overnight. that cold front came in and
6:18 am
left its mark about 2" rain for petaluma, venado three- tenths. half inch of rain in kentfield. so pretty much what was forecast initially occurred. lingering showers through 1 p.m. by friday nice clear conditions across the area. that's going to stay that way through saturday. so today our afternoon highs will be cooler than average. 61 in vallejo. your seven-day forecast we'll see temperatures rise by about 10 degrees. you will feel that comfortable out there. then saturday 70s inland. a great way to kick off the weekend. but sunday night into monday next chance of rain. then again on wednesday. even if you don't have a facebook account, you are still not safe from the ongoing data scandal. the social media giant collects data on anyone who visits the website even if they don't have an account. if you visit a website with a
6:19 am
facebook like or share button, the company collects your online activity even if you don't click the button. the revelation came out as ceo mark zuckerberg faced more questioning from lawmakers. the federal trade commission now says it is investigating facebook. it has power to fine or even break up the company and it's not clear if that will happen. in the wake of the ongoing scandal, instagram, which is owned by facebook, is announcing it will allow users to download all of their data using a new tool. that includes their photos, videos and messages. it's not yet clear when the new tool will launch. apple music is growing. the streaming service now has 48 million subscribers. the tech giant's main rival spotify has 71 million premium subscribers. both companies charge nearly $10 a month. we now know hot warriors will be playing in the first round of the nba play-offs and why was klay thompson so fired up for baseball on social media? we're on deck.
