6:03 am
some wounds on her neck and the back of her head that you know, were consistent with another animal, and lameness in her rear legs. >> reporter: animal control nicknamed the dog gem because she was that gem that was found on the conveyor belt and in his 17 years of doing this, animal control director says he has never seen anything like this. but again, after the few weeks of recovery, this little dog will be up for adoption. so if you are interested in a puppy come january, the san francisco animal control to call. chase cain, "today in the bay." >> it's going to be a long line. thanks a lot. >> the 49ers are saying farewell to candlestick park, their home of 42 years. the niners play their last regular season home game at the stick and as soon as next year the damp foggy stadium will be torn down. the niners will head for santa clara and the new levi stadium. let's begin this morning with

6:05 am
when we caught up with staff over the weekend as they prepared the field and the stadium for tonight's game, but for many it's going to be tough to say good-bye to the stick. >> it's the marquee field for the city, you know. this is where the 49ers play, where the giants played so we always took pride in the appearance of it. tried to prepare the field like it was a championship game. every time. >> reporter: again, tonight will be a very special night. the folks that get the privilege of sitting in these seats are paying a pretty penny to be here. the tickets are going from $250 to over $1,000 a seat. but that's a price many are willing to pay to sit in the stadium one last time possibly to see the 49ers play against the atlanta falcons. the kickoff is 5:40, but the
6:06 am
49ers are urging folks to get here early. the parking lot opens at 1:30 t gates at 2:00. you are urged to get here no later than 2:40 if you want to be in your seat in time for kickoff. inside candlestick park, jodi hernandez, "today in the bay." >> that's going to be full and lit up. tonight it's not just about the nostalgia, it's an important game for the future in the balance. current players and staff tell us they focus on sending off the stadium with a big win. >> expect to the be pretty electric. like a playoff game. i told the guys earlier, it's a stadium that's pretty legendary and you know, we want to do everything we can to send it out the right way. >> so many incredible things happened at that stadium so. many great players played there. i think it's pretty -- going to be a pretty special night there, and we need to be on our p's and
6:07 am
q's. >> we want to win no matter what. it will be a great win, last game candlestick, just knowing that, we could be the last guys to play in the stadium. and when they talk about that, so that would be a great night. >> taking a look at the playoff picture for the nfc west t zaux lose so that means the division title is still up for grabs. the 49ers have not clinched a playoff berth yet. the 49ers need to win tonight to earn a trip to the postseason. >> if the niners win tonight and next week and the seahawks lose to the rams on sunday, the niners would clinch the nfc west division title. but the niners would play at least one playoff game at home. to clinch the playoff berth they need to win or next week. >> we'll continue our coverage of the farewell throughout the morning. we'll hear from legendary 49ers
6:08 am
quarterback joe montana. he's going to tell us why one of his vivid memories has to do with baseball, not football. that's in about 20 minutes. >> it can get cold at the stick. >> a little foggy. >> temperatures are decent. anthony has a look at the forecast. >> near 60 degrees by this afternoon. and you know that. it could be very cold this time of year. you have the fog and the breeze, doesn't make it better. we're not expecting that today. winds calm and we're waking up to clear skies across the bay area. we're talking about record heat and place likes san jose. close to 68 degrees. even in the north bay near 70 today. we're talking about record heat. we're used to being closer to 60, not 70. south bay t hour by hour forecast, by noon 63 degrees, clear skies expected by 5:00, so if you do have to do evening shopping here on this monday
6:09 am
we're not talking a lot of cloud cover. even in san francisco as i was mentioning temperatures near 60 by game time, that's going to be spectacular at candlestick park. temperatures falling back in the jacket. we're not talking about fog and no wind and of course that could make it more -- make it feel even cooler than it would be. all expecting mid-60s by noon. these will be the warmest locations where we could top out near 70 in places like livermore so. very warm for today. it's because of this area of high pressure that slid into place. this is going to keep us dry but also going to decrease our air quality. it's expected to worsen. by christmas we're talking about wednesday and thursday being some of our worst air quality and this on the heels of 12 days of when we spared the air so keep it easy. >> minor flow.
6:10 am
that 12 days of spare the air i think is a christmas song. in the cash lanes, smooth flow, no problem as far as the metering lights go. a slow drive past university avenue. after the earlier traffic break, cleared a car, out of the roadway and again, actually back up as far as off of the racetrack and past university avenue. that's an improvement but light volume around the bay. the south bay shows a light volume, the only issue is north 101. i told you about the disabled big rig, they had to remove it by a tow truck till about 6:45. yeech east brokaw. it's close. anything you'll have an easier drive getting through the area. a smooth flow along the peninsula. a look at the north bay. a nice volume increase
6:11 am
southbound is your commute direction. no problems through san rafael and across the richmond/san rafael bridge. >> breaking news now in southern california. a tour bus crashed. these are live pictures, you see emergency personnel there. we learned there are 37 people on board that bus and at least three have been taken away on an ambulance. the crash comes after two tour bus crashes happened in southern california recently on interstate 15. one we continue to watch. >> time now on monday, still ahead, a special visit to santa's workshop during christmas crunch time. >> go around the world with me. right? >> bob redell is braving the cold at the north pole. >> as we say farewell to candlestick park let's look at

6:16 am
st. nick will have no problem racing around the globe christmas eve. >> go around the world with me. right, cupid? >> reporter: here is north pole's famous citizen, checking in on his eight tiny reindeer in the moments before what seems to be an insurmountable task. >> hi, cupid, sweetie. >> reporter: he has one night to complete the wishes of every girl and boy on the entire planet. >> you have 19 things this year. you cut down, didn't you. good. what you want for christmas? >> i'm thank for everything so i'll let you choose. >> that's nice. >> ipad. >> what do you want for christmas? how about a wedding? >> that would be nice too. we didn't hear a yes yet.

6:18 am
>> a pinch hitter. if one gets sick. i tluv see santa but i love to see the reindeer. the real deal. >> i love that proposal too. classic. very cool. >> glad it's a warming trend. >> not too cold for bob. >> 9 degrees. >> compared to that one year you had to stand on the heating mat. thanks, bob. >> merry christmas. >> same to you. >> certainly don't need that hat here, anthony. boy, i think bob is chillier than we are. >> i'm trying to figure out who rudolph's stand-in is. i don't know. see who you can come up with. put in applications. you know we've got clear skies across the bay area. we're not looking at fog so flew the day temperatures are going to warm. we're talking about record heat. places like san jose could get to 68. breaking the old record set in 1901. even san francisco going to be
6:19 am
warm, low 60s there, not record heat but still, warm for this time of year. we get into the rest of the microclimate forecast, the north bay, east bay and tri-valley where most of the widespread warmth will be. napa to santa rosa to the mid to upper 60s, mill valley close to 70. tri-valley warm. livermore close to 68. a couple shy of 70. could put a few cities at record heat for today. if you are traveling out of town we've got showers up toward seattle, portland, mountain snow idaho, montana. to the east this is where you find most of your travel delays. even for tomorrow with a few lingering showers in new york city, looking at rain now. washington, d.c. and the showers extend all the way down toward florida where they see a lot of showers through jacksonville now and the panhandle there. the middle part of the country, not expecting delays. a few showers across the great lakes. you'll notice the green on the map as we look at the airports
6:20 am
across the country. san francisco no delays all the way to washington, d.c. and chicago though it's cold with a few flakes flying there. back at home, i want to give you an idea. high pressure is going to continue to move in through the next couple of days. so that means unhealthy air quality because we're not going to have a lot of wind and with that sinking air you get down to the surface, smog or pollution that tries to vise going to be capped so unhealthy air quality expected not only for today but as we head through christmas, when we're talking about the worst air quality as temperatures continue to rise each day. it's going to be very long week for respiratory sufferers. take it easy, limit your time but again with temperatures near 70 i know it's hard. how are the roads? >> all right. we'll take care of the folks as far as that goes. around the bay a light volume. there are a couple of issues, fires where the color is other than green. that's the livermore valley and the altamont pass.
6:21 am
580, typical pattern. as far as the volume of traffic it's lighter and why we're not seeing so much of the red. we see orange down to the mid 50s through this portion of the freeway. we did have a crash as you get over to the dumbarton bridge. it was reported as a hit and run so if anybody saw anything or see anything that might be a clue call that in because they want to know about that. there is a new crash, sounds like everything is out of lanes. no slowing. another crash 280, that was not an issue. no injuries reported there. old bayshore highway on 101 north. the big rig and all of the debris there blocking part of the on ramp yooxt brokaw. and the loop off 880 to 101. a look toward palo alto. no problems northbound.
6:22 am
easy flow past the university avenue. all the way up through san ma o mateo. to the east bay, 880 northbound, high street t high rise, no problems at the limit, you have the cash lanes, starting to stack up. after an earlier problem. you get straight away and the slowdown. back to you. >> thanks so much. 6:22. still ahead on "today in the bay." a look back at candlestick park. >> plus, 49ers legend, his memories at the stick happened during a baseball game instead of on the gridiron. >> as we say farewell to candlestick park a look at one of the memorable 49ers flash backs. >> another bad snap.

6:24 am
6:25 am
we're saying farewell to candlestick park. legendary 49ers quarterback joe montana has a lot of memorable moments on the gridiron at the stick. but he says one of his most vivid memories at the park came during a baseball game.
6:26 am
on october 17, 1989, the giants and the a's were playing game 3 of the world series at the stick when a 6.9 quake shook the bay area. montana was in the stands at candlestick when the shaking started. >> we felt the earthquake and the lights went out. my swif going week got to go, let's get out of here. i'm going no, we got to stay and watch the game. we were hours and hours in the parking lot. >> wow. the quake caused deaths and of course incredible damage as we know all over the bay area. also it delayed the world series ten days. the oakland a's went on to win, sweeping the giants in four games. >> the park is filled with a lot of memories that have nothing even to do with sports. the stadium played host to the leader of the catholic church, 1987, pope john paul ii held a mass for 70,000 people. the park is where the beatles played their final full concert in 1966.

6:32 am
up for the coverage. when it comes to the federal website more than a million signed up. that's a fraction what if the administration was hoping for. for those americans who have seen their insurance plans canceled, today is not a deadline for them because last week the administration announced they would be given an exemption but that change prompted new debate about the credibility of the law. for those american who is do not sign up by the end of today will not have health care starting january 1 but will have until the end of march to sign up and avoid the penalty for not getting care. live in washington, danielle leigh. back to you. >> thank you very much. >> utah same-sex marriage battle is back in court this morning on friday a federal judge ruled a constitutional amendment approved by utah voters in 2004 is unconstitutional. the ruling made same-sex marriage immediately legal in utah, with an estimated 100 marriage licenses issued on friday. today the same judge will consider a request from the

6:35 am
left out in the atmosphere. so we're looking at spare the air. all the way through the rest of the week. the potential for that does exist because we're talking about that area ever high pressure. across the bay area for christmas, temperatures very comfortable. look at this, 70 in san jose no. snow on the ground so if you are traveling between now and then you'll have good traveling. over to mike. >> we're seeing a nice smooth drive. the reason i turned this camera, this is southbound 880 with the taillights away from us. at the top of the screen this big rig crashes. the arrow pointing in the direction with the taillights. we saw slowing, ports of a big rig in the dirt on the side of the road. sounds like the tracker was fine. it's the trailer on its side.
