5:08 am
hour-by-hour outlook. we will see an increase in cloud cover around 6:00 p.m., and this will be a late storm that moves in. it will start to sweep down to about 9:00, so really into the overnight hours where we are expecting to see the scattered showers become a little more widespread. also creating some of the instability could bring the possibility of a thunderstorm or two heading into tomorrow morning, right around 6:00 a.m. if you have an early-morning commute, you are likely going to see some of the wet pavement along with some of the scattered showers. this is just one of three systems, but we'll go through that in a second. first, let's get a check on the roads with mike. >> yeah, right now roadways are dry and calm. the bay bridge good. we have a smooth drive once again, and it just cleared it

5:14 am
sellers on its website, and you know how amazon has products, amazon basics, and wouldn't you know it, some are very similar to best-selling products that small businesses are selling on amazon. amazon told congress they are not tracking that data when they decide what to sell them selves. five u.s. lawmakers accusing bezos of lying to them. that's a very serious accusation. congress giving amazon a few days to prove the company is not lying. the lawmakers wrote a letter to amazon that said, in part, at best what we have learned confirms that amazon's representatives misled the committee. at worst it demonstrates they may have lied to congress.

5:47 am
and then scott mcgrew, jen psaki, may have used her podium for political purposes? >> yeah, and that's against the law. we have seen several white house secretaries do that repeatedly, and rules are rules. the hatch act, it bars them from being involved in political activity. psaki broke the rules when she affirmed president biden's support for the candidate running in virginia.
5:48 am
during a previous inquiry by congress, top generals testified they advised the president to keep troops in afghanistan, but the president overruled them. biden later said he did not get that advice. general colin powell is weighing in on all of this, previously, of course. powell says, quote, afghanistan, you're never going to win. that's why i don't have any problem with us getting out of there. we can't go from 100,000 u.s. troops down to a few hundred and think that will prevail. later this evening, the house select committee will vote on whether to accuse trump adviser, steve bannon, of criminal contempt. the complaint will go to the justice department for action. i said it in the past, this is

really an inflexion point in american history. we are about to find out if congress has any teeth. who is more powerful, congress or steve bannon? we'll find out. and then this is trump leaving a deposition at trump tower yesterday in a case dating back to 2015 when security guards in his employ were accused of attacking protesters. it's his first deposition that we know about since he left the white house. we are tracking that on twitter, and we will be talking about it and you can find me there @scottmcgrew. and then a teenager singing her heart out on television. last night on "the voice" she took part in the singing battle.
5:50 am
>> unfortunately she lost her battle, but, you know, still think about it. a bright future ahead of her. she's only 16 years old and a senior at san rafael high school, and she told us last week she's focusing on college applications. we want to wish her the best of luck. remember, jennifer hudson, she didn't win, but look at that, grammys and an oscar. you can watch "the voice" tonight on nbc bay area at 8:00. >> always fun to see local kids on these big changes. >> she's got a future. we have a big stage set for rain. i'm ready. let's talk about it. it's cold as you head out the door. 40 degrees overall. we have chilly low 40s, and that's going to bump up to the 60s this afternoon. the big story this year is the incoming system. let's look at the hour-by-hour
5:51 am
forecast. 6:30 today we see the rain pushing through ukiah and areas north of the golden gate bridge. by 9:00, it will spread further south into aloe alto, concord, and then san josé expect to get overnight showers into the early morning hours tomorrow. you will also notice wind speeds increase as well and that will stick around for the entire night. the first system is coming into tonight into early wednesday morning. behind this, we are talking about an additional system, another one, and this is going to move in thursday night into friday. the big storm that could bring the potential for several inches of rain, much needed, will likely move in on saturday night into monday. this one, if it taps into the atmospheric river, it could bring us not only a lot of inches of snow but also rain. so let's talk about the
5:52 am
estimated rain totals for the first storm into thursday and friday's storm. the first two, this is what we are tapping into right now. a little over an inch in santa rosa, and possibly more for the higher elevation areas, and under an inch for the south bay. as we head towards the wind speeds, though, notice it will be gusting tonight into tomorrow morning, so be careful tonight and into early tomorrow morning, because those gusts are expected to linger into the overnight hours. and then snow totals, this is into friday and also next friday, and this is from three systems, and several inches of snow expected. we are expecting gusting conditions, so check the travel conditions if you plan on traveling up there. but the 7-day forecast looking nice when it comes to the rain. let's get to the roads. weirded out by the arrows.
5:53 am
over here to the bay bridge, the metering lights are on. the toll plaza is right over there, and then the backup is forming, building from the metering lights back there. that should mean relief getting into san francisco. we have seen these sensors turning green from yellow, but will build overall, of course. highway 4 right there down past the earlier crash. typical pattern for contra costa county. this shows a nice flow but slowing through the area. here, folks traveling south 680, an earlier crash left some fuel, a punctured tank there from earlier. meanwhile, the south bay and peninsula all clear. back to you. >> thanks, mike. happening now, about 1,000 pg&e customers are still without power this morning. this is from the rain-related
