morning to you. thank you so much for joining us. i am laura garcia. >> i am marcus washington. we will take a look at your drive times in just a bit, but first let's start with meteorologist, kari hall, to look at the forecast for today. it's cold. >> yeah, for the most part it's mainly clear. we have seen the fog drifting around, and we are starting out dry but have rain in the forecast starting late this afternoon, as a new storm system starts to reach in and it brings in light rain for the north bay around the evening commute. take a look at our hour-by-hour forecast. later tonight that moves san francisco to the east bay on southward and it clears out by early tomorrow morning, and we have more heavy rain in the forecast and we'll talk more about that. it's coming up in just a few minutes. >> thank you so much, kari. 5:00 right now. in just a matter of hours, convicted murderer will be resentenced for the killing of
5:01 am
his wife, lacey, and his son 17 years ago. there still could be a big surprise in the courtroom. >> yeah, kris sanchez is outside the san mateo courthouse in redwood city. >> reporter: we expect that we will hear from scott peterson himself today. our legal analyst said his attorney said he will address the court before he is resentenced later today. he was convicted of killing his wife and their unborn son in 2004, and they overturned the death sentence because they found the judge made mistakes that impacted peterson's right to an impartial jury. the family has a right to address peterson once again, and the first time this happened our legal analyst was there and he said it was gut wrenching. >> i can tell you it was one of the most moving and emotionally
5:02 am
powerful days i have courtroom, boiled homicide detectives with tears in their eyes. >> reporter: scott peterson is expected to break his science for the first time in 20 years as he requested in a separate hearing a new trial. >> with any luck we will hear more details about what he was doing and where he was going, and perhaps even what he thinks about the new evidence that has emerged in this case. i think at this point we have to realize that some of the people out there if your audience may become potential jurors and scott peterson, too. i would urge anybody in the jury pool to keep an open mind because this case is far from over. >> scott peterson's request for a new trial will happen sometime next year. his resentencing hearing is scheduled to start at 10:00 this morning, and we'll bring it to
5:03 am

5:04 am
neutralize the variant, which is good news, but pfizer ceo appeared on nbc today to offer insight. take a listen. >> the good news is, though, when we give the third dose, we saw a 25 fold increase compared to the second dose. so now a third dose to make it clear for your audience, three doses against the omicron variant. >> reporter: that's something we are continuing to follow.
5:05 am
speaking of boosters, appointments as drug stores around the nation like this walgreens here on chestnut, it's very important. folks are want to go safely reunite with relatives as well as the prevalence of the omicron variant, and just to give you an idea how much demand has increased, take a look at your screen. around 55% of people 65 and older have received one. 12.5 million vaccines were given last week. 47 million people in the u.s. have now received a booster shot. something else we are looking ahead to as we get closer to the holidays are the shots, and i have been to this walgreens, and there are folks standing in line. president biden is working to make the costs of the tests --
