keep adding up. mount diablo over an inch. not far away i'm sure you can find more than that. there've been some 2" amounts. we'll focus on that and a couple of people. i believe it here right there it's heading just past the marina district. going over the golden gate bridge by the way and a line stretching right off the san mateo coast. it's mainly rain but it's slowly turning to snow up in the sierras but look around gilroy. some impressive amounts down towards the santa cruz mountains. and rounding the bass of that is a pretty impressive jet stream and that's going to enhance some of these rainfall rates.
and there's a rather decent south wind for about everybody even up into lake county. also now moving back into morine county right back over t berkley there's a line there and also in the east bay beginning to pick up. over the next couple of hours. 60s on the temps. and when it rains usually there's a traffic problem or two. >> yeah, steve, i'm going to show you the godden gate bridge. we've had reports of flooding in some areas. and the golden gate bridge you can look at your camera. you look at the water coming down here it's raining pretty hard here on the golden gate bridge and that means that traffic is going to be a little bit tough in this area. if you look right into the street light there you can see how hard the rain is coming down. we're also looking at rain on other parts of san francisco. this is a look at the bay bridge
westbound. you request see traffic here is going to be stacked up all the way out to the mcarthur bridge. there are no major problems on the san mateo bridge so the rain is definitely going to slow the commute down. looking at san jose about the only slow traffic i see is northbound 101. 680 heading up to the 880 interchange. it's 6:03 let's go back to the desk. a huge tre fell on a house in vallejo this morning. >> ktvu's lee martinez is right there in vallejo. show us the damage. >> reporter: this family says they tried to cut down this tree 11 years ago but the city they say wouldn't give them a permit because the tree is 100 years

with the fingerprint a couple minutes ago and we asked about the tree coming down and they said it appears the tree is on private priority so this probably would be a case for the homeowners to handle the cutting of the tree down. now red cross has been out here. they said they do not have family close by. they said they're looking for a he tell. who's at fault. we're just at the beginning of that. 6:05 is the time right now. today governor brown will meet with california's congressional congregation. >> the first trip to washington d.c. since president trump took office. and that helped expand medical coverage to low income kovrnl. it also provides insurance to 1/3 of the people who live here. but california may lose that money in the republicans health

san pablo. and el cirrito and from oakland somebody named dave clark just told me it was out here. ask this is the line that went right around pescandero. right over 280. that's the line right there. so that's some brief rain. we've had se reports. so far nothing else so far. watch out for gilroy. getting pretty good rain down there and also into the santa cruz mountains. they've had the most i've seen so far along with mount st. hell helena. and san jose jose says .26. we're actually going to merge
two of them together but the jet stream is rounding the base of that and that's really going to enhance as it gets closer here. so the farther north you go certainly better in line to be in possibly of thunderstorm activity. we've already seen a hint to that earlier this morning. 50s and 60s of the temps here. south or southeast breeze as far as the high can see here. 41 in truckee. there's already been some pretty good rain. there's your rain from hercules, richmond and right over east bay now starting to pick up as these nes move through. watch what happened. we might get a few sun breaks but they'll fill in rapidly here

price tag of up to $30 million. a measure in the state legislature could make public college and universities tuition-free for california residents. it could improse a 1% tax. to help pay for tuition and fees for all in state students. it would cost just over $2 billion. a 2/3 vote is required to pass it. now the author of the bill susan tellemonte said it would also be coupled with a constitutional amendment. well the california based consumer watch dog group is accusing amazon of misleading kurps. >> the consumer advocacy group has filed a complaint saying they checked. the consumer watch dog says that
impries that other retails sell the products at the higher price. >> the list price really is a notional bogus price and so they're creating the impression of a discount luring consumers in to buy if you will, when there really isn't any such discount at all. >> canadian officials recently fined amazon a million dollars for not proving the accuracy of list prices. well amazon calls the consumer watch dog study misleading and told the los angeles times manufacturers, vendors, and sellers tell us list price. and we eliminate list price when we believe it isn't relevant to our customers. also amazon has a new feature for prime members who can't decide what to wear. it's called outfit compare.

storms come through. not sure rene says i'm so loving these spring showers. keeps that pollen down. some of that rain moving north. napa, american canyon, vallejo venecia. look at that line heading right into mountain view. wood side, 280 and then coming right off of 84 and then there's more coming in. and smof these cocaine some hail or brief heavy rain. ones going through san ra monoright now just came out of hayward. so that's visiting them and there's more coming in upstream towards the south. and towards gilroy which has had plenty this morning. that's going to help trigger
some afternoon thunderstorms. 50s and 60s on the temps here. pretty good build up spooesh if we get some breaks in those clouds. and take your pick there's gong to be off and on rain. farther north better opportunity closer to the core and also the colder air for the thunderstorm activity. 60s on the temps. 6:32 when it rains we usually have one issue or two. yeah, and normal morning commute will also show us some issues so combine that with the rain steve and you're intlument right. now we did have a report on something going of. i don't see it here but i'm just looking around for it. chp saying that there's something blocking lanes so it would be perhaps eastbound 580 right around here in this area. i don't see it but you can also see the traffic getting out to the maize is going to be slow.

restrictions. >> i don't think it's meaningful at all. these devices have came in from all over the world and how many have actually triggered explosions maybe a crowded market or some of the kufrnls they're probably banning. so i don't see the impact. >> reporter: under an issue directive larger electronics will have to go in a passenger's bag. this will only apply to a total of about 50 inbound flights. this comes a week after president trump's second bid to restrict travel from muslim majority nations was blocked here by the courts in this sxufrm now we have an electronics ban being put in place but it is narrow lite

thunderstorm activity out of this. had a taste earlier if you will. a low rotating in. look and see on the right track. that's the jet stream. rounding the base of that is going to give us a pretty good round of rain. still rain the last time i checked althought looks like a rain/snow mix. the colder air will arrive. then the snow level will go down. 50s and 60s rather breezy. out of the south southeast for everybody and their uncle. mainly it's a southerly breeze. look for some thunderstorm activity today certainly in the valley. you get closer to the core. there's some moderate to heavy rain moving through right now and this will keep us so to speak here throughout the rest of the day and into tomorrow. 60s on the temps. that will mean some cooler
