residents have had to deal with. i am marcus washington. we have a lot for you this morning. first, we have to get to the forecast for you. >> we're waking up to rain in the north bay. we are seeing showers moving through ukiah and santa rosa, and northern napa county and marin county. we are seeing once again light showers moving in, but this is enough to make those roads wet once again as we watch this storm system come in, and there's another one right behind that. we have two storms headed our way for this week that will bring in beneficial rain. we will talk more about how much we are expecting when it moves in, and that's all coming up in a few minutes. mike, you already have a road closure.
>> we do, kari, and it's because of a crash. we have a number of crashes. further east in the contra costa county, we have a closure -- a very serious crash and lanes are blocked at high school road. less than 24-hours ago, a crash also shutdown this road. back to you. a live look at san francisco this morning, because today is the deadline for city employee vaccine mandates, and one agency said it will have to modify service because some of the employees have not complied. two san francisco muni bus routes will be suspended. sergio quintana has more on
that. >> i go to work that way. i come back this way. >> lopez rides the one california route from russian hill to work on the embarcadero, and he's not happy his route will be affected -- >> i am a restaurant manager, and we are looking for people to get in and get vaccinated, so just comply and do it, and move forward. >> the one california short route from downtown to the presidio, and the 14r mission short route will be suspended, and two weekend services will be suspended. 123 employees have not complied with the mandate, and it's a small percentage but enough to
affect the routes. passengers will not lose the ability to get around, but they should expect buses on the routes to be more packed. >> this should be enforced. i feel like reasons that people have, they are not following the science. >> san francisco is not the only big city in the united states with an employee vaccination mandate that kicks in. new york is already seeing thousands of employees going out on medical leave because of the requirement. >> the nyfd with 11,000 employees said they have 2,000 firefighters out so far. here in san francisco we did have the police, fire and other front line departments about their employee vaccine compliance, and they said they don't anticipate any service interruptions. today marin county lifting its endorse mask mandate starting at noon. masks will no longer be required
inside. this is happening because the county met the criteria established by the nine bay area counties for lifting the county level mask mandate. hospitalizations have declined and remain low, and it maintains 21 consecutive days of moderate level on the cdc's community transmission tracker. it's not just marin making changes. also starting today alameda county, contra costa county and the city of berkeley will ease mask requirements, but only in certain endorse settings in places like gyms, offices and religious gatherings. and now to a look at sfo. this is part of a nationwide problem for american airlines and it continues into this morning. american has canceled 1,700 flights nationwide since friday, and blaming the problem on weather and staffing issues. here in the bay area, the affect
has been minimal, 36 flights over the weekend and six today. american airlines said most customers are being rebooked the same day it expect the cancelations, and delays could be getting better today, as 1,800 flight attendants will return to work. and then safeway stores have ended their overnight hours because of the theft. one supervisor tweeted he already met with safeway reps and hopes to meet with police leaders to devise a better plan. and then chancellor, joseph castro, visiting one campus shortly afternoon. the administration did not issue
a direct response. the union argues the union is flush with cash. we are expecting rain to make its way into the bay area and also later this week. we will look at traffic in just a bit, and that could be affected when the rain starts to come down. when should we see some of the rain -- >> it's already falling in the north bay. it's been raining for a few hours now. this is going to be a focus where we see a lot of the rain. we have storm ranger powered up, and the view of the golden gate bridge was a soggy one, and it's getting heavy as we head over spots like northern marin county, and we are going to see some of the showers passing by. it's going to be off and on, and the focus will be the north bay
where we will see some of the heaviest rain off and on throughout the day, and we will talk about expected rainfall totals and how we're doing with our water year update. that's coming up in a few minutes. mike, you have more about the closure in concord. >> yeah, it was north bay north chicago highway closed, and we do talk about that with slick roads, and kari did show the rain coming in so note that for especially the north bay right now. it will be an issue, but right now the roadways are dry here throughout the bay. no major issues and the altamont pass looking good as far as the speeds coming into livermore. it's 4:38. coming up next on "today in the bay," apple has christmas in mind with tons of new items, and it's really the nontech items that could be in high demand and

showers spreading across the bay area. some of it getting lighter as it moves into the east bay as well as the south bay as we sometimes see in san josé, we get rain shadowed. a lot of the heavier rain will move into the santa cruz mountains. looking at how much rain we may see out of this, once again for the north bay, we will see about half an inch of rain. then you head down to san francisco and it's like a quarter inch. look, we could see an inch of rain here, and then as you head over the santa cruz mountains, and los gatos, only a quarter inch of rain. for parts of the east bay, the tri-valley, about 0.1 to a quarter inch of rain. scattered showers moving in. tomorrow this moves out so we're sunny and cool. the rest of the week we are watching another chance of rain moving in on wednesday. as we look at our water year update, we're still doing pretty good. remember, it started one month ago today, and we are seeing a
surplus after a historic storm we had that brought all the rain, nine inches for is not tau rosa and hopefully we will continue to see it adding up. as far as temperatures, only reach into the low 60s today and we will see the temperatures warm up once the rain moves out. we are trying out on friday, and then this weekend we fall back, and keep in mind daylight saving time ends. we will see the temperatures come down a bit. i'm watching that off and on rain. mike, you have a misty view of the golden gate bridge. >> yeah, you were talking about north of novato, and that will be an issue right here. it's just affecting our view of the golden gate bridge. the span itself, the cameras we have north of the toll plaza, it shows a dry roadway, but the rain will affect the 101 up in that part. no major issues except for this crash, 242, and counter commute,
