of hours. so i'm going to be taking a look at the showers as they do move across the bay just make sure to note that we do have some heavier stuff mixed in with these lighter showers out there. one. 0, one from santa rosa petaluma nevado down through centerville mill valley. also wet from these light showers that are pushing overhead there. some heavier rainfall in the western edge of mount tam, as you can see. and then we're also seeing some light sprinkles here and there from concord walnut creek, oakland, you're actually under a pocket of heavy rainfall there. the very southeastern edge of the city right between oakland and san leandro do have a heavier area of rainfall there. san francisco, mostly on the light side right now. little bit of a break from the rain on much of the peninsula as well as the south bay, although the tri valley into the mountains, they're seeing some areas of moderate shower activity. more and more. this rainfall is about to shift on into the bay over the next few minutes. see maybe quiet areas like redwood city down to san jose. but the energy is pushing your direction. so just to get ready for it, just because you
do see some quiet spots today doesn't mean that it's going to stay that way for long. as far as the sierra nevada goes, we're snow-packed as we speak up along highway 50 as well as i-80 both of these routes covered in snow in feet of snowfall, going to be piling up at the crest in see your passes. your mountain passes of the sierra. so today's not the day to be heading up there. i would wait until at little earliest tomorrow afternoon. even better saturday morning. as far as future cast goes on and off showers and you see these pockets of heavy rain that continue to push on into the bay area today. those pockets will really up our rainfall totals in localized areas. pretty quickly. and we do have the potential of an afternoon thunderstorm, maybe even a few rules of thunder before that, too. so be keeping you updated. keeping an eye on those pockets as they move through. we're going to get a midday break from the rain. but then it's going to resurge on into the evening tonight. temperatures today will 50's is our current range of

the appeal. this comes as a new poll by political shows more than half of americans supported the mask mandate. 84% of the support came from democrats. well, 35% were from republicans. now we spoke with a legal expert to make sense of all the back and forth. we've been seen kron four's. taylor is actually has that story. >> after the cdc said that wearing a mask remains necessary for public health. the u.s. justice department is appealing a ruling by a federal judge. the end of the nationwide mask mandate for planes and public transportation. on monday. the department of justice, i think is appealing in part because they don't want. >> a trial court ruling a district court that says cdc when it comes to things like mask mandates, your authority is really, really small. and i think it that they're correct to want to appeal that loyola law. professor jessica levinson says the appeal will examine a federal law known as the public health service act
district. judge kathryn kimball mizelle who void the mask mandate. >> relied in part on her interpretation of the term sanitation included in that law. what we're focused on right now is what can the cdc do when it comes to this language in a federal law that says cdc, you have authority when it comes to sanitation and quote, other measures. and that's what we're litigating right now. robinson says mizelle's opinion of the cdc's ability to respond to public health emergencies could potentially have a lasting effect on the cdc's authority. do you appeal it to you? just leave it there? >> and say, look, it's just one district court judge, where do you peel up to the 11th circuit and then maybe up to the supreme court, as you said, and it comes to a lot of issues. there is a risk of more and more bad decisions if the 11th circuit court of appeals says no, you're right. you really should read the cdc's authority that nearly then its decision upon decision. i'm taylor bisacky reporting kron. 4 news. bar
