plenty of sunshine. 65 by afternoon. union square expected to see 62 degrees. really this is one of the places you got to be if you want to enjoy christmas. a good sight see if you have not been down. this is really spectacular across the bay area. look at all of the sunshine from the south bay to the peninsula even toward san francisco. expecting a mix of 60s in san francisco to close to 70 in places like san jose, which we may actually break a record if we get to 68 in san jose. expecting a mix of mid to upper 60s with some of the warmest locations across mill valley toward santa rosa. the reason we're warm is we have an area of high pressure so our storm track is across portions of the pacific northwest toward seattle. you'll notice this dome of high pressure is going to stick
5:19 am
around. what it's going to mean it's calm winds and going to meaning anant air. not only for today but every location expected to be back in the moderate healthy. this week each and every day we're talking about high areas of air quality. definitely take it easy. this comes on the heels of 12 consecutive days that we spared the air over the past couple of weeks. not something we need across the bay area. back to you. >> we'll take it here, guy, dude. toward the bay area a smooth flow, it is a pair the air day. the biggest deal is for fires. a lot of matter. here we have another deal on 101. that's just fine. the on ramp at old highway, that

sounds like it's blocked by the big rig carrying 15,000 pounds of scrap metal debris. across the on ramp as well. use brokaw road or transition to 101, that is clear. we don't have any wor when they can leave that rig. here the tri-valley moves a tiny bit of traffic through livermore valley. we did have an issue, around mountain house road, the car on track i was worried, so no issues as far as the car being hit. >> moving toward the peninsula. we'll look at oakland, 880, volume, the freeway open here on the bay bridge toll plaza. we see a smooth flow here.
5:21 am
we had road crews but they should be clearing. back to you guys. >> no hurry. the family of a seattle teen says that her eyeglasses of all things saved her life when someone fired multiple shots into the home. saturday night 16-year-old was asleep on the crowd. three adults and six young children were in the house with her. the shooter came by a second time. >> right under here and got lodged. it didn't go further. >> could have been dead. i grabbed -- >> aside from a few stitches no one else was hurt.

5:32 am
somehow it got there and wound up on this conveyor belt. badly hurt. but the animal control director told us in his 17 years of doing this he has never seen anything like this. >> she was like a diamond in the rough, something you don't find very often, then to be sorting trash and find this precious little gem is just like something that's rare, you know. >> reporter: again, this dog will be okay. that is the great news. she will be up for adoption in san francisco, but that will be in a few more weeks. she has a spend time recovering from these injuries. animal control says is consistent with being attacked by another animal though they are not sure what happened to her. they would tluv know what happened to her if someone out there does know. but if you looking for a new dog give animal control a call and gem should be read the find a new home. >> people wanting to adopt her i'm sure about that. thanks so much. >> people also saying good-bye

5:35 am
continue's farewell game special. all kinds of festivities and freebies are planned. while tonight is planned as a celebration it's also a bit of a sad occasion for many. we caught up with the staff as they prepared the field and the stadium. for many it's going to be tough to say good-bye to the stick. >> i'm going to miss it. they can see it all over the world. they don't know me, they don't know who does it but now they do. >> reporter: we are back here live. you are looking at candlestick park. it is very early but there are workers here. again, a lot of them as the team prepares to host what could be their last game ever. the 49ers organization is urging folks to get here early. the parking lot opens at 1:30 t gates at 2:00 but we're told if you are not here by 2:40 you

5:37 am
kickoff. let's start off overlooking across the sky camera network. 30s and 40s across the board. really sunshine is going to stick around all day long. look at these temperatures, headed to a record breaking day with temperatures that could top near 70 in some location, the warmest back off over toward the north and the east bays. the 12 hour, low 60s by noon, sunshine, the peninsula, same a few degrees cooler around 61 degrees right around game time in san francisco. plenty of sunshine and we're you go, your game time forecast looking very good. 60 by 3:00. mid to upper 50s toward the evening. clear sky tonight. no fog expected as we head through the forecast. if you are traveling, maybe headed out of town, a few showers. no delays. you'll find across the east
5:38 am
coast a mix of rain and snow. new york city down to florida dealing with showers, the good news is the only to report a blaze is pittsburgh. every other place expecting no delays. rain and snow out across the east coast. mike, how are the roads? >> looking pretty good. it's 5:38. the volume is starting to ease up. we're see the overcrossing. an issue at the off ramp. we do see the volume increasing. we're talking about a disabled vehicle. getting off the off ramp may be an issue as they clear the roadway. that volume is starting to kick in. we move to the south bay, northbound 101 moves past old bay shore highway. but in an area of the old on ramp blocked by the big rig with scrap metal.
5:39 am
a wrecker is coming out, going to move that in the next few minutes. so far no progress at the seen. 880 southbound, the bottom of the screen, a disable vehicle there. >> santa is making the list and checking it twice. we'll go live to the north pole. >> he's there and all. plus, why the state fines pg&e and returns the company's check when it paid the fine.
5:40 am
5:41 am
three-man rush. young stumbles on the way back. up the middle. pass is caught. owens made the catch. >> all of these cool moments of course talking about the stick. bringing in the final game,
5:42 am
perhaps not the final game. it could be. >> also preparing all year long for this other big moment. it's finally here. >> we're talking about santa of course. but we're also talking about our own bob redell who joins us live for our holiday tradition outside of santa's workshop. he is really at the north pole. how's the weather, bob? frightful? >> reporter: actually it is 9 degrees above zero, which for here is very warm. i kid you no. usually it's my news 2 o last year i think minus 50 so it's unseasonably warm. in spite of that you got to dress in layers. i have my snow pants, jean, jacket, pull over, my t-shirt and my spanks. >> keeping it all together for us. nice. >> love the hat. >> you like that visual? >> especially the bieber believer. what about santa? you think you'll get your wishes? >> hold on. i'm getting something in my ear.
5:43 am
we got to what? we got a direct link to the north pole traffic control. we got a direct link. let's take a look. it's larry again. tracking rudolph on his last test flight and to help, christmas eve, the calvary i kid you not they have new snowball launchers. they ordered the pilots to provide cover in case they come across an unexpected grinch. like that guy. the fire power, i'm telling you. the fire balls, traveling at least 10 miles an hour. >> you were there in the line of fire. i have to think that hat protected your head. >> or the spanks. >> reporter: i don't even remember that, the concussion was so dramatic. i was knocked out for at least, you know, a day. >> very cool. i know the temperatures are
5:44 am
chilly so you're bundled up. you had a run-in with santa. you think people's wishes will get granted? >> reporter: i've been talking to santa. we were in his house when a lot of the kids were going in and he was telling us most, emfascist, some are nice. he said if you can be nice before christmas eve you got about 24 hours you can get on the nice list. by the way, the milk and cookies and make sure the milk has not expired. >> 24 hours for redemption. thanks, bob. >> hoping that everybody gets what they want. anthony, what about you? looking forward to seeing santa >> oh, yes. with weather like this you can't complain. we're going to look at christmas day actually being our warmest this week. how is that for my gift to you. >> thank you. look at you. >> across the bay area you'll notice clear skies, we're not looking at fog, temperatures
5:45 am
today will be comfortable. we're talking about highs back in the mid to upper 60s, in fact san jose expecting a high of 68 today, and the old record for daytime high is 67, and wouldn't you guess, that the old record was set back in 1901. so we're talking about record heat not only for san jose but palo alto and los altos expecting mid-60s. san francisco not at record heat but low 60s expected there, the record in san francisco for this time of year is 64. so we're not going to be there. a few shy. the north bay could set a record across napa. we're forecasting 66. oakland 64, that's the old record. so lots ever places today could break some records across the bay area. we're talking long standing, not just a couple years ago. back to 1901 to talk about heat like this. across the time of year. it's because we have high pressure that is setting up across the bay area. and this is not something we typically see. our jet stream is across the bay
5:46 am
