5:02 am
around 5.18, while pittsburgh, antioch, a little closer to that 5.30, time is when your showers will definitely start to pick up that that line of showers is what i'm looking at right now. coming along with an initially a very light start. and then there are really starts to come down with a very short areas a little further south. you can see san jose, a little quieter right now, but that rainfall bit further south is also moving that same direction. so impact to hear shortly. zooming out a little bit further. there's the sierra 50, 80 and not a good. go ahead and up that direction today at the earliest head up there tomorrow afternoon. honestly, if i were you, i'd wait until early saturday. better chance to enjoy that fresh new snowfall after roadways are cleared out. so very active situation across the bay. it's on and off. showers today. pockets of heavier rainfall. kind of like we're in the midst of right now. interspersed by dry skies at times, rain stays with us through your morning commute. so it is going to be a rough go this morning right around

5:05 am
mandate after there were now know local state federal guidelines saying that you have to wear asked the state's department of health also terminated their statewide order on mask. and barr have been following tsa's guidance. but now that agency as well will be enforcing back either. however, as we mentioned, bar is reconsidering a proposal that would require masks on its trains. and that proposal is being brought by the board's president. and here's why she's moving forward with it. >> because there are many riders who need to be protected from covid. so folks who have underlying health conditions who are immunocompromised kids under 5 were still not eligible to get vaccinated, which is i know amazing to some people because vaccines have been around so long. but small children are still not eligible. those people really need to be protected in the best protection is that everybody wearing. >> mask.
5:06 am
>> now she'll be presenting that proposal at the next port meeting. she says covid cases are going up again and they say that this would be their way to keep riders safe, especially the ones who are at high risk. we're under the age of 5 and darya james. that meeting is on the 28. so we'll have to see what happened then. but for now, nascar optional, if you're riding bart starting this morning and like i said, i've seen plenty of riders this morning wearing their mask. however, i just did see one person without one. again, it's optional. but bart officials are highly encouraging it back to you. >> all right. thanks. a lot of camilla. and now on a national level, the u.s. justice department is appealing the florida judge's ruling that ended the mask mandate on public transportation nationwide. >> the cdc says it supports this appeal. >> and there's a new poll by political that shows more than half of americans supported the mask mandate that the ruling struck down. we spoke with a legal experts make some
5:07 am
sense of all this. yeah. loyola law professor jessica levinson says that the appeal will take a look at a federal law known as the public health service act. that law gives the u.s. public health service, the authority to prevent the spread of diseases from other countries into the u.s.. now, professor levinson says the judge'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 loc 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. >> the appeal could eventually make its way to the u.s. supreme >> happening today, vice president kamala harris is

5:09 am
the developed world. black women are 3 times more likely than white women to die as a result of pregnancy. and the cdc says 60% of these deaths are preventable. so the vice president is working on initiatives for maternal health to combat this in systematic unit in qualities that lead to the worst outcomes for women of color in her home state visit, she will advocate to improve these outcomes as a part of her continued call to action. the administration is actually investing 3 billion dollars to help prevent women from dying while pregnant or giving birth or afterwards. so the vice president will be speaking around 2 o'clock this afternoon. and you can listen in because it's going to be, of course, and they close quarters area indoors at ucsf. but you can watch for yourself. owner app kron on. for now. i'm sarah stinson reporting live in san francisco. back to you. thank you, sarah and former president barack obama is also going to be in the bay area today. he's going to be speaking out of stanford. >> later this morning, apparently talking about dis information in the media. and

5:16 am
through walnut creek, down through oakland airport, san leandro. those spots really seen it coming down in pretty widespread good moderate rainfall from bunny shipped down through into more august. oakland itself right across the bay bridge coming down a little bit now for san francisco and up in marin county after you saw that resurgence of moisture now pushing a bit further eastward north bay, it's actually pretty quiet for mendocino. northern sonoma counties. you do have snow and upper elevations of lake county. there's a little bit of a closer look at an updated look at that rainfall, that heavy pockets of it that continues to move a little bit further eastward. concord, now more too out towards bay point. it's eventually going to impact you further and further eastward out towards antioch. and brett would and further move down 6.82 danville, san ramon and eventually the tri valley. also going to be picking up on this heavier area of rain that is moving gradually further eastward. further south san mateo down through mountain view. you're in the midst of some areas of
5:17 am
moderate rainfall, mostly santa clara valley, still quiet, but it's on its way your direction. so expect your rainfall to pick up here in just moments. multiple systems working their way through. we actually do have a very strong area of moisture that's sitting right to the west of the bay that once it collides with this frontal boundary is actually going to see a pretty good uptick in rainfall here in just a matter of an hour or 2. so we are going to see pockets of rainfall really picking up here and there most of it, the most widespread rain is going to be light. but those pockets will pack a punch. the potential of a few rolls of thunder and even some small hail at times this morning into early afternoon and into the early evening tonight. those are your 3 waves that are really going to come through interspersed by some clearing. so be ready for rain any point today, even if you do see sunshine doesn't mean you're done with it just yet snow in the sierra all day long. there's your first wave of rain pushes out around 10:00am you get your fall sunshine and then another one
5:18 am

5:30 am
bay is actually going to be fairly quiet from this point forward. you're going to be on some of our lighter rainfall totals the next 24 hours as this energy shifts a lot further southward. as you can see, the core of this energy as of this moment is right there along this front, a line that is pushing through the east bay as we speak. san ramon expect or rainfall to pick up here in just a moment or 2. you are right at the edge of it 05:37am. it's going to start to pick up for you. oakley around 5.49. and then after pleasanton and livermore little bit closer to the 6 o'clock hour is when you're really going to notice that rainfall kicking more so into gear for you, oakland, it's starting to show signs of calming for you as the east bay shoreline is starting to see the energy pushing up into the hills just east of you. while the creek conquered, you're still in it. san ramon diaz mount diablo about to be in it more so and a little bit calmer compared to where we were earlier right across san francisco and our bridges. look at the south bay. you're right on the cusp of at least some light to moderate rainfall right now, san jose
