>> times are changing. good morning. i am dave clark. let's check your weather. >> look at the projections with the first system and it looks like maybe december or january timing. it will be potent for this time of year. by this time tomorrow, heavy rainfall. there is a chance we can have urban and small stream flood advisory just in time for your morning commute. today it is fairly quiet. we will bring in a chance for showers in the north bay, especially by this evening. rain returns tomorrow with gusty winds. the focus of the heavy rainfall will be to our north. you see what's developing. the bright colors indicate high moisture content. that's being directed to northern california and the bay area. within that corridor you get excessive rainfall and that will be the case for your friday. we have another system sunday. there are lots of clouds in place. we will look at the current numbers with san jose 53, santa
rosa 50 and san francisco 56 degrees. we have a possibility of scattered showers. the rainfall rates are really increasing for your friday morning commute and by 12:00, lingering rain in the south bay. at 4:00 we'll begin to scale back the coverage. that is tomorrow. get ready for the rainfall today which is fog in place, increasing clouds, possibility of a pop up shower in the north bay. not a major deal yet. we'll keep an eye on the radar. sal is standing by. it's been a very busy morning already since 5:00. >> it's been super busy. a lot of people have been effected by incidents on the road that have been cleared but they're still affecting traffic if you are trying to get into san francisco. we had a couple things go on on the bridge and off the bridge that slowed traffic down, 25 to 30 minute delay at the bay bridge toll plaza. if you normally drive this, it will take you maybe five or ten minutes longer. in san francisco we had an earlier problem but things are
beginning to recover. it looks better than a few moments ago. things are beginning to unwind here. let's talk about san jose south bound 101 at brokaw. a ups truck is on its side. it will be clearing up soon but the traffic will be slow south bound. north bound which is on the other side of the freeway may be slowing to take a look just because people like to see. north 101 is slow at that scene. >> thank you. cities and counties are gearing up for the first significant rainfall in months. the storm should arrive in the north bay this evening. it will spread to the rest of the bay area tomorrow. alex is live at marin county at one spot where we see flooding often. >> reporter: we do tend to see flooding here at the mill
valley parking garage under highway 101. things are dry but that will certainly change in the next 24 hours. this parking lot really tends to flood when there is heavy rain and you get high tide contributing to the problem. you see a sign warning people not to park here starting tomorrow. flooding will certainly be a concern across the north bay where the mountains could see up to three inches of rain. rivers and creeks will be filling fast and many roads could be washed out. we have seen people picking up falling leaves and clearing their gutters because that debris can pile up in your storm drains and clog them up. the rain is expected also to make for a very slow morning commute tomorrow with those slick roads, chp is expecting quite a few fender benders. i talked with an officer by phone about what drivers need to do to prepare. >> our normal first rain scenario, a lot of debris washing into the roadways, stuff that's fallen over the
summer. additionally, we will be dealing with people who aren't adjusting driving habits for the rain. they're still going to be driving like it is dry and summer time. because of that, we will probably be dealing with a significant number of spin outs and crashes. >> reporter: here is the reminder from chp. please leave plenty space between you and the car in front of you when roads are wet. chp is asking people to check their tire pressure before they head out and make sure your windshield wipers are in good working order. you may not have used those in quite sometime, because this will be the most rain we have seen in the bay area since march. again, we are here this morning at the mill valley parking garage, one spot where the water does tend to pool quite a bit when we see heavy rains. tomorrow you will not be seeing cars on this lot or if you do, they'll be under some water maybe. >> thank you. in addition to preparations alex mentioned we hope you

comes to disciplining officers. >> the truth hurts but selective ignorance is fatal. >> we knew these things were occurring. this report puts the emphasis on this is happening and we have proof. the question is now what do we do? >> the police commission president says she wants the department to provide a report once a month on how those recommendations are being implemented. we are following a developing story. a big storm heading toward bermuda. hurricane nicole is expected to reach the island as a category 4 storm. you see it to the right on your screen churning, heavy rain and wind speeds above 100 are expected. many flight and cruise visits have been canceled. nicole is not expected to impact the united states. food, water, medicine continue to arrive in haiti. u.s. army is helping bring aide to the hardest hit areas. hurricane matthew left tens of

7:14. authorities in concord are reviewing circumstances surrounding tuesday's deadly officer involved shooting. officers identified the suspect as 30 year old dominic muscleman. he attacked another man with a hatchet and tried to hide in a backyard shed. when officers arrived, he went after a police dog with garden
shears. he then moved toward them causing officers to shoot and kill him. the police dog is recovering from stab wounds between the eyes. >> they got into a punching and biting and everything. obviously there was a lot of blood. i think the dog prevented the suspect from attacking the officer. >> the injured police dog is expected to make a full recovery. the investigation of the officer involved shooting continues. 7:15. berkley has been granted $3.7 million to build affordable housing. the gray son street apartments near ashby avenue will have 23 affordable apartments over more than 2000 square feet of ground floor commercial space. the grant is from the state's greenhouse gas reduction fund. it's focused on creating housing developments designed to help people drive less. american singer songwriter

to stay on a schedule. san jose north bound 101, 280 and 85 looks okay. we have a crash as you head to 880. it's not causing a huge back up but we have slow traffic. we have slow traffic on the san mateo and bart bridges. both are slow. both crossings are not doing well. 7:18. let's go back to mark in the weather center. >> the big weather story will be tomorrow. be extra careful tomorrow. today we are prepping for that. you can see low clouds over san francisco bay. you see the calm conditions on the bay waters. just some overcast out there with increasing high clouds into the afternoon hours. we will bring in a chance of a shower primarily for the evening. that will be up in the north bay. the main action is to our

screen showing rainfall starting to the north and spreading south because we have this guy in the pacific, a potent narrow band being directed toward northern california and the bay area. that will bring significant rainfall to our forecast for tomorrow and once again for the weekend especially by sunday. rye now the clouds are in place, most rainfall is to the north of eureka. as far as current numbers, we have clouds to worry about. temperatures are in the 50s across most of the region. san jose 53, walnut creek last check reporting 52. storm highlights targeting friday morning. rainfall expectations about a half inch to three inches. that will be for north bay coastal hills and winds are increasing as well at 40 miles an hour. here is the plan for today. at 5:00, lots of clouds in place especially for the northern half of the region. the chance of the showers in the north bay, we will bump
