11:19 pm
patchy frost, a possibility. winds which have been offshore this weekend will slowly switch back to onshore sea breeze. it will lead to cooling temperatures and mornings that shouldn't be as chilly by the middle part of the week. start out the workweek. mild afternoons, monday to tuesday will look just fine for outdoor plans. wednesday, things are going to change. seven-day forecast has been updated to reflect some of the changes now. we'll show you that coming up. right now the satellite is quite clear. no clouds out there. high pressure is like a wall on the west coast and gave us nice temperatures for the weekend. 76 degrees today and santa cruz tomorrow. one more day of 70s near the coast. but by wednesday, it's going to break down enough. now possibly tossing light rain for the entire bay area. maybe not just for the north bay. we will have to watch this pattern closely because as it falls through some very dry air, probably not going to get a lot of rain out of it.
11:20 pm
it will transition into a much different pattern here for the second half of the week. tomorrow you're looking at the future cast hour by hour. no clouds. really no fog, no high clouds going by. that is the case for high pressure. wednesday, see changes which will likely include a little bit of light rain. 30s and maybe upper 20s. north bay valleys, patchy fog. probably the only thing slowing down your morning commute. mid 60s around the tri valley. cooler back towards fairfield. see three in san francisco and 64 degrees in santa rosa. first two days of the week look nice. staying dry for you're out door plans wednesday. stay tuned. could see a few rain drops there into early thursday. and thursday afternoon into friday, looks nice and dry. and then next weekend, stay tuned. that looks like the best bet foreseeing some rain and cooler temperatures. could see highs next weekend. upper 40s and low 50s. at least that's my forecast. maybe i should ask janelle what
11:21 pm
she thinks because she's extremely accurate of late. >> spectacular. football fortune teller, we're talking about our own janelle wang for the second 49ers game in a row she predicted the win and point spread. listen to this from our friday at 6:00 newscast. >> we're going to listen and las vegas is going to listen. >> i think it's going to be tighter because they're away. and the falcons have a fierce offense but i think the 9ers, oh, drum roll, the 9ers are going to win by four. four against atlanta. >> by four? >> four. >> okay. seriously? really? comcast sports better watch out. janelle knows what she's talking about. speaking of comcast sports, let's check back in with ahmed fareed. you've got to have a little pressure with janelle right now. >> i wondered what she was doing here standing behind me. >> giving you cues? >> yeah. before she replaces me. all right. the sharks finally hit the ice. that's what we'll talk about

11:23 pm
11:24 pm
11:25 pm
welcome back. ahmed fareed from the comcast newsroom. 5-0 is the record in super bowl in history. but when it started it looked like they might not get a chance to defend that perfect record. this is why, colin kaepernick leading the 49ers but it was matt ryan who stole the show early on. pick it up in the second quarter. atlanta already up by ten. check out the throw to julio jones and tapping the feet. got them both down. got three feet down. 17-0, falcons. jim harbaugh not feeling good. he felt better after this, though. fourth quarter, took the lead. 49ers up by four. last chance for the falcons. fourth and four. bowman knocking it away. 49ers win, 28-24. they're going to the super bowl. >> feels pretty darn good.
11:26 pm

twoon eating fast food and some
11:31 pm
of the most common chronic illnesses in kids. a new study of 500,000 children in 50 countries link fast foods to worsening symptoms of hay fever and eczema and asthma. if they eat fast feed three times of week or more they had more severity. they were surprised to learn the study's findings were consistent across the world. >> it is an enormous survey. it is quite impressive. and consistent with other surveys that have been done in the past several years. >> researchers say they found a reduction in severity in symptoms for kids who also eat fruit at least three times a week. that's because fruit and vegetables are full of anti-oxidants, of course. and right now another live look back at santa clara at the 49er team's training headquarters. the 9ers arrived in san jose about 20, 25 minutes ago. they're on buses. they're headed right there. we'll take you back there live as soon as they arrive.
11:32 pm
11:33 pm
beyond all pomp and circumstance another priority for tomorrow's inauguration is keeping all of those hundreds of thousands of people converging on washington, d.c. safe. nbc's pete williams looks at a city on high alert. >> reporter: in the airspace above washington helicopters and jets will enforce a virtual no-fly zone for 30 miles in all directions from the u.s. capital. six miles of the potomac and anna costa rivers will be shut down. with 150 blocks of downtown washington closed to traffic, partly out of concern for car or truck bombs. >> we have people prepared for everything. so that's the way we do.
11:34 pm
we prepare with all of our partn partners. >> reporter: much of inaugural security will be visible for protection and crowd control with counter snipers on top of buildings around the capital and along the parade route. some not so visible. detectors on monitoring the air for toxins and plain clothes security teams watching for suspicious behavior. at the ready near the capitol, thousands of antidotes in case of a chemical or biological attack. no firm figures are available but all this security will cost about $120 million for hundreds of federal agents, thousands of local police, and national guardsmen from 25 states. this second obama inaugural is expected to draw less than a third of the nearly 2 million who came four years ago. six bridges and freeways that were closed then will be open this time. but a highway tunnel used as a pedestrian access point that became clogged with thousands last time will be closed this
11:35 pm
year. and officials say they will have more metal detectors in use and advisories on social media hoping to avoid the long lines, some that never moved. >> there's over 500 pole mounted signs that last time didn't even exist. we also increased the number of people giving directions, telling people where to go. >> reporter: officials say so far they know of no credible threats in ceremonies but will be out in force helping to make sure nothing goes wrong. we've been talking a it, the bay area celebrating the 49ers' nfc championship win. the team just landed in san jose a few minutes ago and now they have just arrived at the training facility in santa clara. let's check in with monte francis. >> reporter: diane, you have impeccable timing. you can see here behind me the police are pulling up. behind them, a few buses. we assume those are the buses the theme is on heading back here to the training facility in santa clara. as you can see, there's a large
11:36 pm
group of fans here waiting to welcome the team home. they have gathered here at this late hour, they say, because they want to show their support for the team and they want to welcome the 49ers home after today's big comeback victory against the falcons. you can see there are some children out here tonight. and that is probably because there's no school tomorrow because of martin luther king jr. day. also interesting to note as these buses pull in here that just next to the training facility is the new stadium looming above us. for now, of course, everyone is just focused on the super bowl which happens february 3rd against the ravens in new orleans. of course that means the two harbaugh brothers will be coaching against one another. we visited more than one viewing party today and everyone just ear rupped when it became clear the 49ers had won the game. and you can still feel that excitement that we observed earlier today out here tonight as the team arrives back home. a few people out here actually
11:37 pm
took cabs here. so they could be here to welcome the team home. that is true dedication. this has been a really good time to be a san francisco sports fan, diane, as you know. >> quick question for you. we see all the folks there and the buses are passing by. where are the buses headed? is there a another entrance to the training facility? >> yes. as we understand, the buses pull around the back, come in through the building and hopefully what the fans are hoping for are the players will come around here and take some time and greet them and the fans will be able to welcome them home. >> i presume they're going to want to do that, right? this is half as fun for the players as much as the fans? >> reporter: i would assume so. if that tas doesn't happen we're going to have a pretty mad group of people here tonight. >> how many folks would you say are out there, monte, right now? >> caller: 50 before, i would say -- you have some coming your way. >> have some coming our way. 75 to 100 people out here tonight, diane. >> as you mentioned, a lot of those children out there don't have school tomorrow because of the martin luther king holiday. of course, any idea --
11:38 pm
>> i assume. >> so any idea, monte, on how long they might take before they come out and greet the fans? any thought process on what that might take? >> i assume they're going to go into the building and unload some stuff. it probably won't be too long, diane. >> people pretty happy out there right now? >> reporter: yeah, they seem pretty happy. you guys pretty happy? >> yay! >> yeah! >> that's your answer right there. >> very good. monte francis reporting for us from santa clara from team headquarters.

11:40 pm
11:41 pm
there is a new concern tonight for many college students heading back to school this week facing the worst flu outbreak in years. while colleges have been encouraged students to get vaccinated, there is still concerns another round of outbreaks. n brk c's michelle franzen has more on that. >> reporter: back from break university of wisconsin madison junior is doing all he can to keep from getting the flu. >> my mom has been hounding me about it. and actually work with kids at the day care, at the university, so it doesn't hurt. >> reporter: he is one of hundreds of students on campus getting the shot due to the nationwide flu outbreak. >> heard all the statistics online, through the tv, and just said, why not. >> reporter: according to the cdc, 48 states are now reporting wide spread cases of flu. 30 states report a high level of
11:42 pm
activity. and 30 has college health officials brace for the worst. >> we're concerned about students returning from all over the world and all over the country. they may be incubating those infections and bringing them back to campus. >> reporter: at the madison campus, health workers say it is the first time they are armi in students with shots this late in the season and will have extra vaccines ready to go. >> just in the last week alone we've seen 400 students coming in for shots which is relatively unheard for news january are. >> reporter: in massachusetts hale workers are also using fliers, social media, and flu clinics to get the world out and help students who get sick. >> lots of students get frustrate with the illness, they miss classes. this takes a toll on them psychologically as far as them getting behind in their schoolwork. we do our best to support them with that process. >> reporter: support and precautions that could help students keep the doctor and flu
11:43 pm
away. michelle franzen, nbc news, new york. as we mentioned earlier, the baltimore ravens are also headed to the super bowl after beating the new england pay trots in the afc championship. the win for the ravens sends them to their first super bowl in 12 years. baltimore fans reacted to the win with sheer joy. the win even left the mayor of that city speechless. >> my voice is a little raspy because i've been screaming because it is so -- there are no words. you know, this is our date with destiny and just to be -- it's incredible. i don't even know -- i don't have any words. just very blessed. we are, as a city. >> reporter: the 49ers take on the ravens in super bowl xlvii in two weeks. no word yet on what the two mayors of the citys will bet on. but we're guessing they will bet on something along the way. we want to take you back out live to santa clara to 49er team headquarters. as you can see, we have lots of fans out there.
11:44 pm
