good tuesday morning to you. thanks so much for joining us. i'm laura garcia. >> and i'm marcus washington. mike is keeping an eye on the roads, what you can expect before you head out the door but first let's talk about the forecast. meteorologist kari hall has been tracking that for us. kari? >> good morning. as we take a live look outside in dublin, commuters rolling across 580 through dublin, and hopefully not distracted by the super moon out there that we can clearly see because the sky is clear. temperatures in the low 40s, a chilly start to the day and a warmer afternoon as temperatures warm you were fairly quickly by late morning. headed into today expect low to mid-70s for our inland areas, even warmer air in the forecast. mike, you're starting out with breaking news. >> i am. it's not the closure thaw see but what dominates the view. the freeway throughout the bay moving smoothly except for 84. you're familiar with last week.
south bay freeway santa clara county the freeways are all right. an expressway lawrence expressway where there's police activity, we're hearing about a crash where two people died, snk kris sanchez is on the scene. it's very early but you have more information. >> reporter: it's very early in the investigation, but this crash happened just about 10:00 last night and what we know at this point is that the sheriff's department deputies were trying to initiate a stop on a vehicle when that vehicle failed to yield and took off instead. this happened just on midi way off of lawrence expressway near highway 280 right near midi sky school. the sheriffs office confirms they were trying to stop a driver and the driver took off and instead hit another vehicle. the crash was so forceful, the vehicle went airborne. >> i guess probably going pretty fast to get off the pavement. it's like a movie. it's like flipping over the air and slamming into the wall.
>> reporter: at this point, we cannot confirm who the victims are nor why the deputies were police are handling this crash investigation. they are not giving out much information about that crash right now, and the sheriff's department information is basically what we told you. so if your kids though are headed to midi high school this morning or you are headed to midi high school, you have to get here some way other than lawrence expressway because lawrence expressway is closed between glen tree drive and 280. we are still waiting to see how long this is going to remain here at the scene but it happened about 10:00 last night and the investigation is ongoing. in san jose, kris sanchez, "today in the bay." >> kris, thank you. new detailed this morning, scott pederson is scheduled to appear remotely for a preliminary hearing tied to his murder conviction. a judge will consider evidence surrounding the jurors who sentenced him to death for

governor's handling of the covid-19 mandemic is a glaring example but not the only one. she sights over-the-edge criminal justice reform, high taxes, the water shortage. >> it's great news for california, suffering under one-party rule headed by gavin newsom for too long. >> reporter: many see the response to covid-19 as a driving force behind the recall but that may be losing steam as covid concerns subside though that could change. >> a lot of things could happen. there could be a resurgence of a new variant, a screwup, something similar to what the governor did with his french laundry episode. >> reporter: counters have 30 days to submit signatures and 30 days where people can withdraw from the petition and the department of finance has 30 days to figure out the cost of the recall and another 30 days for the estimate.
the state will certify the signatures. the governor has majority support now and some democratic party officials say there's no need for a change. >> he is competent. he studies, he reads, he asks people for advice. he listens to them. and he goes with the best plan that he can have. >> in an interesting twist, the newsom campaign says the recall could cost the state $100 million, money that could be better spent on vaccinations. terry mcsweeney, "nbc bay area news." among the notable candidates running against governor newsom, southern california businessman john cox who ran against newsom in 2018, former san diego mayor kevin faulkner and olympian own former reality tv scar caitlin jenner. president biden will update

moved in last wednesday. they were, however, given what they call a snippet of video, only 20 seconds and therein lies where they say is a big problem. what is the sheriff's department hiding by not giving them all the video. when they did look at the 20-second video which they watched repeatedly over and over, they concluded it was what they call an execution. >> dad got executed just by trying to save his own life. >> why is it that they get to choose what's the "pertinent parts" of the video. >> they crowded around his car, they shot, were shooting in the front window of his car. >> reporter: from where you were standing, did it appear that his car speeding away could be perceived as a threat to the officers where they were standing? >> no, because they were standing behind him. >> reporter: i'm kerry sanders. details will be coming up on

i'll leave the traffic reporting to our mike inouye coming up in moments. let's check the forecast with kari. how are we looking for today? >> it's looking pretty good, as we are making plans for the day. tuesday, let's head out to the park. it's going to be a beautiful day, over in mountain view starting out with temperatures at 8:00 at 50 degrees. jacket weather for the start of the day but look at our trend for the rest of the day, as we continue to warm up, it will be in the upper 60s during the middle of the afternoon. sunshine and a breezy wind so it's going to be really nice for any outdoor activities around the bay area. as we get a look at our live view in san jose, let's go around the bay with temperatures in concord in the mid-60s, but some mid-60s for burlingame, we'll see some mid-70s inland. so we do still have some storm systems out there in the pacific, but we do also nearby have some high pressure that's keeping those storm systems to the north of us, so unfortunately there is no more
rain headed our way over at least the next week, high pressure is not budging. i wanted to show you our statewide reservoir levels. on average we're almost 70% of the historical average when we look at all of those larger reservoirs, the water levels are still decent in some spots, but getting critically low in others especially for the smaller reservoirs. let's compare that to one year ago, when all of our reservoirs across the state were on average 101% of capacity, that was so great to see, after all of that rainfall that you can see how much it has fallen over the course of just one dry season and the reason why we do need to conserve. as we get a look at our temperatures over the next few days, we are starting out cool but warming up by the end of the week, and this weekend it does come down a few degrees but we'll also have the winds picking up. we'll watch out for that and i'll have more updates. mike, what is the update on the
