5:20 am
especially for some of our elevations above 2,000 feet. it could drop down as low as 500 feet and means there could be a light dusting of snow around the bay area. but if you're going to the sierras this weekend you're looking forward to a lot more snow there and we're going to see temperatures reaching to 30 degrees. it's going to be cold. lows in the teens. the surface trails are groomed and ready for you because we're going to have a lot more snow as we go into the next week. take a look at what the models show going into the next week the potential of up to about two feet of snow at some of those resorts in the sierra and we're going to be watching out for that too because as we look at mount hamilton the summit and our north bay mountains we may have some snow dropping in too but some of the models are showing that we may have a dusting of snow on the valeny floor next week. it's going to be pretty crazy

"new york times" democracy has prevailed. you're going to like this one, it says biden restores u.s. to the climate accord. you've been watching that carefully. of course, you can't move on with the work of the day without talking a little bit about the
5:34 am
party last night. the fireworks spectacular lit up the sky behind the white house last night. we had a front row seat, unfortunately because of the pandemic and high security measures, it was strange to hear them go off without those oohs and aahs from the crowd. the swearing in because of the violence at the u.s. capitol and it was shut down to the public, three u.s. presidents were there, former vice president mike pence watched as joe biden took that oath of office and delivered a speech with that theme of unity. >> america's story depends on not any one of us or some of us, but all of us, we the people. >> reporter: for the bay area the thrill was seeing the daughter of oakland a woman of color assume that second most
5:35 am
powerful office in the nation and as the new team made their way to president joe biden's new home on be pennsylvania avenue he stopped for a few fist bumps along the way. al roker might have been one. madam vice president made her way along pennsylvania avenue with her blended family, her sister, niece, grand nieces, all of them in dresses of vibrant purple, teal pink and silver, a show of power and a show of femininity. you'll remember the early days when you just kind of had to look like a guy in navy suits and black suits. you don't have to be guy-ish to be powerful. we ladies can dress in bright colors and get it done. >> there you go. bring on the pearls. >> for all you know i was wearing this suit yesterday and you never know. change the color of the shirt and there you go. >> i think you were. >> it was a blue suit.
5:36 am
>> can you describe the security now around the white house and the capitol? how long do you think it's going to last? did we lose kris? >> we did see -- >> we did see law enforcement. we didn't see the heavy machinery from the national guard. we know they're still here and going to be here for a while and that all of that security is going to remain for a bit, but we also know that that riser across from the white house where we were standing is going to come down because the work continues both on the streets and inside the white house. >> it was nice it was a peaceful day at least for, you know, all the inauguration services, thanks so much. president biden waste nothing time getting down to business. the first thing he did as commander in chief, signing that string of executive orders many unduing the efforts of his
5:37 am
predecessor donald trump. rejoining the paris climate pack, rolling back anti-immigrant and anti-muslim policies and halting oil expansion in the arctic. expert larry gerson explains the significance. >> most of them are designed to put the biden footprint into place and many of his values, as it turns out, run contrary to the ones established by president trump. >> his team, homeland security issuing an immediate directive to pause most deportation hearings for the next 100 days. 5:37. the u.s. reported more than 4,000 deaths due to covid-19 calling it the highest total ever in addition to nearly 179,000 new reported cases. in california 700 new deaths reported in addition to more
5:38 am
than 22,000 additional infections. a sobering assessment in california's vaccine rollout. it could be several months before all 65 and older receive their shots. "today in the bay's" bob riddle is in pleasonton and why is it taking so long? >> two things at play pretty obvious, one, our state is not receiving enough vaccine doses and the vaccines aren't being distributed fast enough. here are the latest numbers from the state. of the nearly 4 million doses received so far, the state has administered more than 1.5 million doses only about 40% of the total supply and less than 4% of the state's population has been vaccinated. the state health director says california is already receiving 400 to 500,000 doses a week. at that rate it will take 20 to 22 weeks to vaccine the entire population of californians who
5:39 am
are 65 and older. this is according to reporting done by the chronicle that puts us into mid to late june. the paper reports that dr. pan hopes other manufacturers can roll out their vaccines and increase the supplies but thinks that won't happen until march. new this morning the new head of the centers for disease control and prevention spoke on the "today" show about the 100 million americans in first 100 days and asked when vaccines would be available in our local pharmacy like the flu shots are. >> i don't think late february we will have vaccine in every pharmacy. we said 100 million doses in the first 100 days, and we're going to stick to that plan, but i want to be very cognizant of the fact that after 100 days there's still a lot of americans who need vaccine and we have our pedal to the metal to get as much vaccine out there. >> also new this morning, cnn is
5:40 am
reporting that the trump administration left the biden administration with no vaccine rollout plan to speak of. that the biden administration is having to build everything from scratch. reporting live here in pleasonton, bob riddle, "today in the bay." >> thank you. reaffirming president biden's commitment. the important speech that dr. anthony fauci will give the world about the fight against covid. >> plus, saluting madam vice president. the honor and gift the warriors gave kamala harris during last night's game. >> also ahead, meet the remarkable young poet who made history at the inauguration. nbc bay area and telemundo 84 are teaming up through project innovation a grant powered by the comcast/nbc universal foundation. project innovation recognizes and awards $315,000 in grants to local nonprofits. you can learn more about the program and submit your
