about twitter and it could be bought out by another giant company ceo tesla ceo elon musk saying he wants to buy. >> the entire company and turn it private. can you do that is going to be pretty yeah. and use offering a pretty good price. let's check in with sarah stinson. she's following this live this morning. what's the latest? sara? >> that's right. twitter's actually talking right now at the board of directors in a meeting about this proposal because elon musk is offering over $7 a share of what its worth right now. that's worth 43 billion dollars. what he's saying. he'll by twitter for he wants to take twitter and he says he was to transform it not only to a private company, but make it 100% about freedom of speech so that it was he fees proposing is kind of a shock to many people. but this is just a few days after this tesla ceo has declined the
8:04 am
offer to be a part of the board of directors of twitter. this just days after that must currently own slightly more than 9% of twitter's stock making him the biggest shareholder right now, twitter offered him a seat on its board on the condition that he own no more than 14.9% of the company's stock. but musk declined. musk just provided a letter to the company that included a proposal to buy the remaining shares of twitter that he doesn't already own. musk says the social media platform should be transformed into a private company saying in the regulatory filing i invested in twitter as i believe in its potential to be the platform for free speech around the globe. >> however, since making my investment, i now realize the company will neither thrive nor serve the societal imperative in its current form. must also says his offer is final and of twitter does not accepted that he will have to reconsider his role as a shareholder. and since he's made this announcement,
8:05 am
twitter stock has climbed in climb. that's been interesting as well. twitter has responded saying they did, in fact get this proposal. they said that it was an sulser unsolicited. it's nonbinding. >> they will review this proposal and decide if this is a good move for the company as a whole and for its shareholders. again, that's $7 over the current price of shares right now. so of course, it's a good deal, but they have to decide. is it someone they really want to share this company to sell this company, too big, big decision and they're meeting right now darya james. so we'll continue to fall. as for now, i'm live in san francisco. send it back to you. >> okay. thank you, sarah. >> time now is 8, 0, 5. and happening now, atf agents are joining the investigation to see what caused the massive fire. >> at a home depot in san jose. was it arson? that's one of the big questions are hoping to answer. a kron four's will tran is standing by live for us out in front of that. home depot. >> good morning. well,

8:07 am
it was arson accident or they can spend weeks if not months here and ultimately find out that they don't know the reason for the fire. but the good news is when the fire broke out, it was so intense that things were falling from the roof. fortunately, nobody was hurt. but it caused nearby homes to shelter in place. the atf they are here their system with the investigation. but as far as home depot, that is destroyed. the good news is we are hearing that the employees at this location, they have been transferred to other locations. so they won't lose any of their income because of this fire. but as far as this place of blossom hill, this home depot obviously is not available to the nearby residents as it was destroyed town. back to you. thanks a lot. we'll. >> 8, 0, 7 is the time. and the plea hearing for the man accused of sexually assaulting a relative of ufc fighter cain. velasquez is now getting pushed back to june. harry

8:15 am
behind me here in the cisco grove area. this is about 5600 feet in elevation here where the snow is falling not far from i-80, if you're going eastbound on i-80, you're going to need those chains between the drum for bay area all the way to truckee and visa versa for the westbound drivers. so be aware that meantime, truck drivers have to stop over at the applegate exit to have a screening just to make sure you have change in your possession and over highway 50 chain requirements are in effect from the twin bridges area all the way to myers just south of lake tahoe. so regardless of how you come up, the mountain today, whether i-80 or highway 50, you're going to need those chains. but james and ari, let me tell you was i kind of show you right here. it is sticking to the ground and it is accumulating and we have some pretty good, fresh snow. and that is good news for california, james and are a very good snowball like snowball. just grab it and pull it up and chunks like that. >> 8 on. yeah. right. thank
8:16 am
you very much. we got john standing by here. also with a check of the forecast to another vantage point. this one just a little different part of the sierra. exactly. so time is he's kind of on the western edge of the sierra the ones that are getting a lot right now. >> looking a little more calm at lake tahoe, but you can see if you look at that snow is all the way down at lake level nice. a little wintery. i was looking up because if you want to go out skiing, this is a great weekend sunday, be great. a lot of them are closing sunday is the last day. but there are a few like heavily staying over the week more. yeah. so it 20 for them even for the b. it was kirkwood was saying maybe may so hopefully we've got some more ski weekend, if not, at least we're going out with a bang with this. yeah. so this is great guys. above 7,000 feet, 10 to 18 inches of snowfall. that's a good snow, right? and eventually this late in the year. so we waited long enough for it. april's giving us what we were hoping for in march and february. it's not a drought buster by
8:17 am
any means, but at least we do have multiple systems ahead of us. you can see there is some accumulation there on the picnic tables. a diamond peak. it's going to start accumulating more and more. right now. we're under winter weather advisories from the sierra down through the lake county mountain snow. i know it looks calm over there at lake tahoe, but heading up to late on the western edge of the sierra. you're already looking at snow packed roadways along 80 and highway 50. these roadways just getting up to the lake, especially around donner summit are difficult go. we've got the chain controls in effect and it is very slick up there. as for the bay right now, rainfall is about to be pickcng up for us. we've been seeing it all morning long and lake and mendocino counties. it's really starting to pick up in sonoma county. now parts of the north bay peninsula in the east bay are starting to see really just some light showers, heavier stuff sitting right to the west of us. and that's going to shift its energy more and more our direction. so it's only a short time now before we start seeing rainfall little bit more widespread, really starting to pick up,
8:18 am
especially for the north bay. we're sitting right on the jet stream and doing so. we are right in the path of these multiple systems had one earlier this week. now we're looking at this one another saturday morning and another on tuesday. so interspersed by some dry days. finally looking active system, an unsettled weather pattern that we've needed for. so so long now, north bay, big winners, as far as rainfall goes today, seeing the heaviest of rainfall concentrate, especially in sonoma and napa counties. snowfall stays with us all day long up in the sierra nevada. it's going to stay put into tomorrow morning to rainfall for the bay area really diminishes after 09:00pm tonight. and then we're going to be looking at a dry day tomorrow. if you want to head to the sierra tomorrow is a great day to do it after you get off of work, be settled in by saturday morning is that's when our next system pushes through this one moves in a little bit quicker but packs more of a punch. so whereas today is slower mover but spread out and lighter rainfall. this one pushes right in with the heavier burst of rain and moves out
8:19 am
mostly by 11:00am tomorrow. may even see a few rolls of thunder towards the tail end of the system. late morning tomorrow noticing all that snow right in the middle of the day in the sierra tomorrow. rainfall amounts today around a half an inch for santa rosa quarter of an inch for most of the rest of us. you add on top of that, what will be seeing saturday morning over an inch for areas like santa rosa close to it for napa and around 3 quarters of an inch for a lot of the rest of the bay area. great to see it. we're not going to complain about it for sure. and we do have those dry days here and there. so you just want to plan outdoor activities on dry days like tomorrow, for example, and just take it easy at home today. if work from home is an option for you. today's a great day to be doing that free. but right at 60 today, pleasanton 58, oakland, 59 and the spread of upper 50's to low 60's for the most part of the ways across the north bay. tomorrow i mentioned being a dry one and a little bit of a warmer one at that to saturday morning. we've got rain. but by saturday afternoon were
8:20 am
cleared and dry it out. i know some of us wanted to do some stuff on saturday. just wait till later in the day sunday, one of the best days of your forecast, whether it's passover easter, we're looking at highs in the 60's near 70's and lots of sunshine for it. after that, your next chance of rain will be tuesday. reyna. john, thank you for well, up in the north bay, we've got an accident. so this is northbound one. 0, one. >> at manual t for this parkway. so you are seeing delays as you're traveling along northbound along one o one. there looks like you're also seeing some delays along the southbound side as well. so we're closely monitoring that as you're traveling into the city, a 60 minute drive for you right now. no major rain slowing us down and sleeping things up for us. so that's the good news there. we do see delays along one o one that's on the peninsula. not just because of an uptick in traffic. so about 19 minutes as you're traveling for 8.80, making your way to one o one, a crocodile towards the maze. you continues to slow down here. 31 minutes now for your
8:21 am
drive. he, could take san pablo avenue. however, it's starting to get busy along there as well. down here along 8.80. so if you're traveling from san leandro to 38 to milpitas, it's going to be about 36 minutes because of travel time there. an uptick in traffic. but along 6.80, we're looking at an 18 minute drive as you're traveling from dublin down to fremont darya. james, back to you. thanks a 21 in national news the u.s. is sending in more resources and heavier weapons to ukraine. yeah. that includes artillery, armored vehicles, helicopters as well. we've got a washington correspondent, basil john, with a closer look. >> good morning. the white house said it will send 800 million dollars in additional weapons to could leave to fend off russian forces in the eastern part of ukraine. the biden administration is ramping up its assistance to ukraine with more weapons and intelligence. we hope that will make a significant difference as ukrainians now are facing a much more concentrated effort by the russians. >> pentagon press secretary
8:22 am
john kirby confirmed some of these weapons have not been provided before, but i want to make it clear that everything that we provided to them in the past has been part of ongoing conversation with ukraine's about what their needs are. the new aid package came after president joe biden spoke with ukrainian president volodymyr zelensky in called the war a genocide. i call the genocide. become clear, clear. >> the food is just trying to wipe out the idea be able to some have been critical of the administration's approach and want the u.s. to send stronger weapons. >> but kirby emphasize that it's not that easy. there's not a day that we're not making these decisions were also not thinking about escalation management with the russians. you have to the potential specter of nuclear war between the united states and russia is not something to be taken lightly. kirby also noted that any actions the u.s. takes could also affect our allies and partners in this effort. >> which is why they must tread carefully reporting in washington. i'm basil job. a
