11:08 pm
ucsf scientists have made a vital discovery that could lead to an endemic. we think we've uncovered a key connection. that we could ultimately fight not just this variant, but future variants that we don't even know about yet dr. nevin krogan welcomed us inside. mutations in the alpha variant are allowing the virus to evade our immune response the same key mutations outside of the spike protein. we're also found in the delta variant and in the omicron variant certain proteins being produced at a higher level. in that particular virus once the virus infect ourselves and these particular proteins are able to inhibit our immune response our it's inhibiting our cells from fighting off infection omicron accounts for more than 73% of covid cases in the us dr. kroegan believes the key to stain one step ahead is
11:09 pm
understanding previous variants. going to come to a point where there's going to be just combinations of the mutations that have already existed in these. strain, he says vaccines boosters and pharmaceuticals will continue to be key in this fight. i think this virus will ultimately become endemic just like influ i will have to be dealing with this. for the rest of our lives, but it won't be as a deadly. that's the hope every year will probably need a booster shot of some kind. researchers believe this discovery could lead to beating omicron as well as predicting future covid-19 variants ahead of community spread in the newsroom loose peña abc 7 news. thanks so much. luz raine was not the only thing soaking a street in san francisco today at water main break flooded part of kenwood way can see that water. rushing down a staircase. this is between 19th avenue and i-280. there were initial reports that

11:17 pm
will go the whole day without a human interaction or someone to wish them a merry christmas. and while donations are always welcome to salvation army says it's greatest need right now is for non-perishable food. well, let's be honest most of us have regifted a christmas present at some point in our lives but a book of candy turns out to be the gift that keeps on giving for two brothers even though neither of them ever wanted it the wasson brothers from new hampshire have been gifting that book filled with lifesavers back and forth for get this 3. years each time they try to outdo the other finding creative ways to conceal the candy now this started in christmas back in 1987 when ryan wasson got some lifesavers from his brother eric as a joke problem was eric didn't like them. i didn't eat them. and so the next year i thought hey, i'm think i'm gonna give it back to him. you'll never remember i immediately recognize this on the little rite aid sticker on the back frozen the block of ice

11:19 pm
most part overnight into tomorrow morning and temperatures in santa rosa are in the low. fairfield 42 concord and livermore at 43 degrees. so here's a forecast animation midnight tonight to 9 o'clock tomorrow morning. we'll see these spotty showers overnight into tomorrow and then some more moderate rain comes in to the afternoon more widespread showers again some moderate rain there the yellow and some snow in the forecast. we have a very cold air moving through it does get heavier monday morning and even more snow there. then you see this heavier band moving through the peninsula and into the east bay in the morning. it does taper off monday afternoon into evening and then tuesday another system moves through this one has lighter rain, but what you'll notice. is there's more snow because the cold air is going to continue moving in. it's going to drop our temperatures each day and are overnight lows. it's super chilly, especially mid-week rainfall amounts
11:20 pm
generally around 3/4 3/4 of an inch by monday morning around the bay and then anywhere from a quarter of an inch to even one and a half inches. some of our higher elevation so a little bit of this widespread rainfall overnight lows will be in the low 40s around the bay, but will even start to drop into the 30s through parts of the north bay. so it's going to be pretty chilly tonight and windy at the coast tomorrow's highs are going to be on the colder side as well. so low 50s around the bay with upper 40s through the north bay lake santa rosa napa 47 will be breezy. so hold on to those umbrellas. and of course jair was talking about the closures on 80 and highway 50. so avoid driving to and from the sierra if you can until tuesday morning, we are expecting up to another nine feet of additional snow above 3,000 feet and even up to two feet at above 1500 in addition to that. there is a winter weather advisory part for parts of mendocino and lake county. so they're expecting two to five
11:21 pm
inches of snow. so it's a rain and snow mix and that's in effect until 10 o'clock tomorrow morning. here's the accuweather 7-day forecast very wants their showers scattered showers to rain tomorrow on monday. we'll see a storm level 2 because we'll see some more moderate rainfall, but most of the rain will fall in the morning then we'll get a nice break throughout the day and then get ready for some very chilly numbers tuesday, wednesday thursday. we'll see some overnight. is possibly drop into the 20s for the valleys, but then friday saturday new year's eve if you've got plans and new year's day, it's gonna be sunny and a little bit milder but still on the cool side. it's almost feels like we're skipping ahead. we're looking forward to that new year's next holiday, right? yeah. yeah, we gotta get this next four wet days out of the way. thanks francis. well staples center no more the new name of the arena in los angeles. we'll talk about that and the numbers behind what's believed to be the rich. naming rights deal i
