5:20 am
between about 6:00 and 9:00 a.m. it will probably be the most important part of the day for rain for some of us. by that i mean the north bay. that's when this will be bringing most noticeable rain through sonoma, marin, napa, not to say it won't rain after that to the south. it will. it won't be that good. that's maybe about 0.2 of an inch of rain. if we go to 9:00 and 10:00, golden gate, it will rain today, don't get me wrong. by then we are talking about light showers that should not have a significant impact on the drive. even the rain in the north bay, windshield wipers will likely be on in the window of really 7:00 to 9:00. but it shouldn't have much of an impact. slick roads are slick roads. give yourself extra time. south bay, maybe a shower in the early afternoon. then we watch clouds clear out by the time we get to 1:00 or 2:00. that might be one of the more
5:21 am
interesting things about this. it's been a while since we have seen blue sky. it's going to take a while to do that for some of us. for north bay you will see it by early afternoon. in the south bay, you might get to clear blue sky by just around sun set tonight. then there is no more rain. temperatures will be in the mid 50s for seven days. light rain today and the rest of the seven-day forecast, you see light showers there for friday turning into mostly sunny days with daytime highs in mid to upper 50s. that's where things stand at the moment. let's get an update on the drive and check with gianna for that. let's look at the roadways now. a couple things to look out for, first reports of a trouble spot at the richmond san rafael bridge. it was first reported as a stalled vehicle but looks like a couple cars got tangled up. a crash near the toll plaza. we are not seeing brake lights or issues so that's good news. according to chp it is blocking at least the right lane near
5:22 am
the toll plaza. it may be a little past where our live shot is. i will show you a map of the area. we are not seeing any red popping up so it is not causing brake lights or issues as of yet. we'll let you know if that changes. travel time, about ten minutes to make it to the marin side. bay bridge toll plaza, quiet, with no major issues or delays. that can change later on as we see more cars on the road way after 6:00 and when the rain starts hitting the area. so far it's under ten minutes from the maze into the city. it looks like they did move the crash near the fremont street exit off the freeway down on the off ramp, not locking main lines of the road way traffic moving nicely. golden gate bridge, 19 minutes from highway 37 south 101 into san francisco, no delays. it looks like things are good on the san mateo bridge. 12 minutes between 880 and 101. it is friday light for the drive into altamont pass.
5:23 am

let's get you ready for the middle of the day. we have done a lot of focus as we should on the morning commute. by lunch if you are in the north bay, most of the rain is done. from the city south, you might have a stray shower or two. you can see we've got clouds left over. it will be partly cloudy. it will be mid 50s in general by that noon to 2:00 time frame. if we look at high def doppler, you see why it's really the morning commute where all the focus is today. we will track the showers if you are ready to head out the door. plan on rain, specifically in the north bay through the morning commute hours and i will show you more on that in
5:27 am
futurecast in a bit. we'll look to the rest of the seven-day forecast as well. for now, back to you. we know this, it can be hard to have a conversation while wearing a face mask. i feel like we are like huh, what? >> one tech company is working to change that known as the zephyr pro. it is the second in a series of futuristic face masks from razor. it has internal mic, external speakers, small fans to keep your face cool. the cost is $149. but you can't even preorder one yet. i don't know. i will leave my regular mask. >> i like my pink mask. >> i lose them so i am not going to spend $150. >> i can see myself leaving that in an uber or something. >> exactly. still ahead on kpix5 and streaming on cbsn bay area. >> new legislation in what

5:31 am
good morning. good morning. we will watch light rain in the north bay and it will have an impact on the morning commute. it shouldn't be major but still don't be surprised really between 7:00 and 9:00 this morning. you see the rain on the high def doppler. those showers will march across mainly sonoma, marin, napa. it looks good on futurecast. that gets us through the heart of the commute. there is 6:30. here is 8:30, starting to get down to the golden gate. we notice light showers from the golden gate south after 8:00 or 9:00. so really after the heart of the commute. they won't be heavy by the time they have done that. late morning to early afternoon for the heart of the bay, city, peninsula, east bay, south bay, inland valleys of the east bay, you will get light rain. it just won't be enough. towards 2:00 look at the break in the sky. there is blue sky. that will be nice to see.
5:32 am
we haven't seen much of that. daytime highs will go to the upper 50s. for now we are in the low 50s. how does the drive look? things are actually okay. we are getting a couple hot spots as more cars get on the road way. not seeing a lot of brake lights or issues especially for the ride towards the dublin interchange. you see head lights heading towards 680 and extra volume but still moving at a pretty okay pace there. no crashes or incidents into the altamont pass area. traffic as you work east of there, a little bit busy in some spots, seeing some red and yellow on our censors around grant line, north flynn. but again it is not causing major delays and your travel time looks good. it's safe to say it is friday light. we are keeping our eye on brake lights at the richmond san rafael bridge, a trouble spot past the toll plaza. it looks like traffic is starting to slow down just a bit. back to you.
5:33 am
today, oakland teachers planning a sick-out to protest what they say are unsafe conditions in the classroom. >> let's go to joycelyn moran with what educators are demanding from oakland unified. >> reporter: this sick-out is impacting classrooms. principal of oakland tech told parents in a message to please not send their students to school because it was likely there would be no instruction. teachers we spoke to say given the surge we are experiencing in the bay area, they don't feel safe in classrooms. before winter break oakland unified sent rapid tests home ahead of winter break and more than 900 positive cases amongst students and staff turned up. teachers planning the sick-out are demanding a list of covid- 19 safety protocols, including kn95 for staff and students with the requirement updated to require the masks. weekly pcr testing of students and staff and want the district

5:46 am
101 and for some communities through sonoma, lake, mendocino, if we put it into futurecast and watch the showers across the area, it stays in north bay through the next hour or so. this is where it will have most noticeable impact on morning commute. that's not saying much. this does not have a significant effect on the morning commute. what impact it does have will be focused on the north bay. by the time it gets to golden gate, we are getting to the 8:00, 9:00 hour and there are showers that will work through the heart of the bay. 10:00 a.m. is when it is across city, east bay and slowly falling apart as what's left of the rain tries to get to the south bay. you probably won't get much of anything measurable in the santa clara valley from this or in the tri valley but you might get a drop or two of rain. once we look at the half noon like at 2:00, look at the back edge of the clouds. sunny skies for north bay by then. by the rest of the afternoon,
5:47 am
clear skies clear out the rest of the bay area as well. even though this is one day we get rain out of all the clouds, pay off comes late in the day when we get rid of the clouds. we've had two days where you couldn't see the sun. it will be nice today where you get a nice break and you can enjoy blue sky and direct sunshine just before sun set basically. totals come in about a tenth of an inch of rain. so we know they're not significant. it does snow in the sierra. we will not get a lot but there is enough that there is a winter weather advisory in the mountains. that stays in effect until 6:00 tonight. the seven-day forecast shows you we'll clear out for the rest of the seven day. no more rain, highs in the mid to upper 50s. across micro climates, same story here with mid to upper 50s. today is the only day with rain on it. how is the drive? it is getting busy. we have a trouble spot on richmond san rafael bridge. you see the back up near the toll plaza. that's due to a couple cars
