hall, tracking when the latest system is planning to hit. this is "today in the bay." of course we broadcast to your television, but we also stream live on check it out. i am laura garcia. >> i am marcus washington. let's get your hour start with traffic and weather. we will get a look at some snow? i know there will be snow in the sierra. is that coming anytime soon -- i was trying to think if it's a rain or snow, a lot of stuff going on out there. >> it's cold out there. >> yeah, we are starting out with cold temperatures this morning and this is our live view in san josé. in some spots we have frosty conditions and then we will see sunshine today. for the weekend we will be preparing for the storm set to move in early on sunday. yes, we will have heavy rain and snow in the forecast for early next week. let me show you what you will feel as you are stepping out the door on friday morning.
5:01 am
we are right now only in the mid-30s in dublin. 36 in morgan hill. it's 38 in san josé. our temperatures will dip a few more degrees before sunrise. we could see freezing temperatures in some spots. this is that atmospheric river that we will be talking about the next few days. we will keep you covered on every platform as well as on social media. keep an eye on the timing as well as intensity and how much rain and snow we will see across the bay area. i will have more on that coming up in the last few minutes. vianey, you might want to check the tire pressure. it's cold and that sometimes may delay your commute. >> absolutely. when i turned on my car this morning, my tear pressure light was on. i will have to check that out and make sure i am being safe and my tires are good to go. there was an area that popped up
5:02 am
on the map in the south bay on 101. aside from that, any fender benders have cleared out. it has been a light commute. highway 85, you are looking at 18 minutes to 101. so far bay bridge toll plaza, no metering lights on just yet. >> you can follow both, kari and vianey on twitter, instagram and facebook for weather and traffic updates. 16 and 17-year-olds are cleared to receive the booster shots, but it's the delta variant causing a battle on two fronts. >> it is, that's right, marcus.
5:03 am
right now we are seeing this expansion of covid booster access on 16 and 17-year-olds, and we are seeing the research that the boosters are so critical in fighting the omicron variant, but it's the delta variant filling hospitals with unvaccinated patients. with covid patients and hospitalizations increasing quick, just two weeks before christmas gatherings, 16 and 17-year-olds are eligible for pfizer booster shots. the white house urging extra protection for everybody 16 and up. >> get your booster right away. >> pfizer showing new data that boosters give 25 times protection against the
5:04 am
fast-spreading variant. it's the 40% of americans who still have not had their first two doses, driving the latest wave of delta variants -- >> we are tired. >> the governors of new york, new hampshire and maine sending national guard troops to help in overwhelmed hospitals. >> because more unvaccinated people are ending up in icus and ventilators, and the numbers have not leveled off -- >> medical experts hoping to stave off another dark winter with vaccines offering a way out. so far kids younger than 16 are
5:05 am
not eligible for booster shots, but experts say they will have strong protection from two doses, because generally their immune response is stronger than adults. >> we are hearing so much on up and down numbers wise, so give us an idea of with those numbers stand and compare it, if you can, to earlier in the pandemic? >> right. it's good to put this into context. if you look at the most sobering statistic we have, the death count. earlier on cdc the reported 1,800 covid deaths in one single day, and that's lower than the peak when the vaccines were widely available. in january we were recording more than 3,400 deaths in a single day, and in january, we were down to 111 deaths per day, so that gives you context of
5:06 am
where we are right now head into the winter, and the cdc reminding folks, if you are unvaccinated, you are 11 times more likely to die from covid. >> when you put it like that, that's scary. alice barr from washington, thank you. san rafael schools are opening up centers that will help students deal with isolation and stress of the pandemic. they will be located at tara linda and san rafael high and davidson middle school. they will be able to get counseling, help with support groups and crisis intervention. if you are headed for a concert indoors, every one over the age of three must show proof of vaccination or a negative covid test within 72 hours of the event. those new rules in place last night, at the the sap center and
5:07 am
chase center and shark tank. new state rules cover indoor events with more than 1,000 people, and fans at last night's game seem to favor that change. >> it's a bit surprising, but if a ten-minute test will give us piece of mind, we are happy to comply with that. >> i have done it before, and normally it hurts but it didn't hurt as much. >> the sharks set up free rapid testing for guests. this is near one of the sap centers' entrances. it's open two hours before the puck drops. a san francisco man that dedicated his life to preventing street violence was shot three times. it happened on broadway during a night out november 21st. hamilton said he just bought a pizza and shared it with
5:08 am
strangers and was walking to his car when he heard gunshots. he managed to run inside a club to receive help. now he wonders if it was a case of mistaken identity. >> i would have tried my best to utilize the skill sets i have in violence intervention prevention, mediation and de-escalation. i didn't even get the opportunity to even do any of that stuff. >> he's hoping witnesses come forward and help police make an arrest before the shooter targets somebody else. 5:08 right now. happening today, san francisco students plan to walk out of class because of the way they say officials handle reports of sexual assault. >> yeah, they are wanting a change in how they respond to that complaints of sexual
5:09 am
assault. you might recall hundreds of students walked out last month because they say they don't believe the district is doing good enough job of holding perpetrators accountable. we spoke with one student that said the administration swept her complaint under the rug, and -- >> i removed myself, and then he will move himself to be right near me. i am, like, can we not do that? i thought we made it clear we would have our boundaries set, but, no. it's me, taking myself out of that class that is what makes me feel comfortable, and i have to -- can you? >> yeah, she just has to -- sorry, yeah, we just saw him in the hall. >> yeah, he just walked by.
5:10 am
so that literally shows you there's nothing being done. >> wow. >> we asked specifically about those allegations, but they responded with the overall policy. this is a diagram of how they handle sexual assault allegations. so yesterday the superintendent also shared a letter with families reading in part, we want to reiterate each and every student's concern is taken seriously, and sexual harassment has no place in our schools. we are taking the steps to make sure we educate, address and prevent any incidents of sexual harassment that occur in our schools. and there is a link to report. i will put the letters up on my
5:11 am
social pages if you would like to see them yourself. i will put them on facebook, instagram and twitter. it's nice and clear this morning. >> you know what it means when it's clear? >> it's cold. >> no cloud cover to keep us warm. >> it's cold, kari. >> yeah, as you mentioned, the clouds act as a blanket. as you are stepping out the door in free mopped, we are in the upper 30s and low 40s this morning across many of our microclimates. a cold start and a slow warm-up today but at least we will have sunshine and that's going to help out quite a bit, even though we are seeing temperatures in hayward reaching 55. 55 as well in santa rosa. san francisco reaching 54 degrees. go into the weekend, we are going to be tracking the atmospheric river set to arrive
5:12 am
on sunday morning, and that will continue with heavier rain monday and continue into tuesday as well. we will see more rain behind that. we will talk about how much rain we could see and how much sierra snow we could get from all of this. that's coming up. >> thank you. just ahead here on "today in the bay," a look at the most tweeted about shows. google shares part of its downtown west plans that can help provide for those trying to make it in the bay. we are getting important numbers about inflation and what it means for your pocketbook. >> will it ever stop sinking? a second test leads to more tilting issues to the millennium tower in san francisco. our investigative unit has been following this, and on you can find more details on the latest report. head over to the website and

5:17 am
falling. we sometimes get a little quiet when gas prices go up, and they are down 16% from the october highs. that is a lot. the white house knows the inflation is the political challenge for president biden, and the republicans know that, and many americans are demanding washington do something. the thing is doing something about inflation, and we may need to do something about inflation, it's going to hurt. the fed at some point will with draw its support for a lot of the economy, and that could mean people will lose jobs, and it will adjust interest rates and that will indirectly affect your mortgage. 15 and 20% interest rates was not unheard of in the '70s and

5:20 am
>> yeah, keep that over there. the weather, we like to say keep it over there, and the rain says, no, no, i'm coming your way, kari. >> and we need it. i don't know if we need this much and all at once, but this is how we get half of our yearly rainfall and that's with that atmospheric river. we will see that coming in by the end of the weekend. cold, frosty in some spots, and, yes, this weekend we will talk all about the incoming atmospheric river. we will have storm ranger powered up for the weekend and you can have the same views we get here in our weather office if you have the nbc bay area app, and it gives you alerts as that rain approaches your location. we are still dry but we can see a long line of clouds and moisture that is going to be coming in. that's basically what an atmospheric river is. it's a long narrow band of very high amounts of moisture that
5:21 am
brings in about half of the yearly rainfall. then we take a look at our temperatures for today. it's cool. we are starting out in the 30s and only reaching into the 50s. that polar air poured down across the region, and that will be more coming with the atmospheric river ahead. that's why we are saying this may taper off next week with snow across the bay area peaks. the timing for the rain, it starts to move in on sunday morning and continues monday morning into tuesday. there's more rain behind that for wednesday and thursday, so it's going to be a pretty soggy week. we are looking at rainfall totals anywhere from three quarters of an inch in san josé, and four inches or more with gusting temperatures and it could cause street flooding with all of the heavy rain. nine inches of rain across the santa cruz mountains, and three to five inches of rain for the north bay. for the sierra, i can't even
5:22 am
imagine seeing 99 inches of snowfall in kingville over the course of a week, and even lake tahoe could get 72 inches of snow. that's pretty amazing. we will see if that all pans out. once again, this weekend, while it's still dry, make sure you are preparing for that and it will be windy. it's cold. i have my boots on and i will bring out my rain boots. it's busy. we are starting to notice an increase. it's 5:22. this is typical, right around this time. at least we are not seeing any major crashes. we have a little slowing along 280, and i will have another look at that coming up in a bit. coming up next on "today in the bay," "nbc bay area responds."

5:46 am
week if action was not taken that the raising the debt ceiling is something that happens fairly often and usually it's not political, and that's because paying bills for things you already bought is not optional, when the other option is default. you could choose whether or not to swim if you fall out of a boat, but the other option is, yeah. and mitch mcconnell and the republicans are getting grief. they did not vote to raise the debt ceiling, but they voted for a law that would allow democrats to raise the debt ceiling. we are negotiating with the russians trying to head off an invasion. today we will see the second day of the democracy summit as more than 100 democratic nations

5:48 am
today. we will talk more about inflation as laura mentioned. that's on social media. you will find me on twitter @scottmcgrew. developing this morning, two men now accused of starting the caldor fire outside of lake tahoe is expected to be arraigned later today. authorities this week arrested a father and son and charged them with reckless arson. so far authorities are not elaborating on why they are the fire suspects, and their attorney said they had nothing to do with the fire other than call 911 to report the flames. california water agencies ended up falling short. the state could have selected nearly $1 billion in funding for
5:49 am
delinquent bills. we're talking about $300 million. that money will cover as much as 90% of the debt accumulated by more than half a million struggling californians over about 15 months of the pandemic, but less than half of the state's water agencies applied for their share. thousands of customers outside the bay area still face shutoffs due to money owed. returning this morning, new year's right around the corner and you know what that means, new year's resolutions. >> a new survey says you likely kept what you hoped to do. 71% stuck to their resolutions this year, and that's significantly higher than 58% who followed through in 2020. the survey shows top resolutions this year are to save money, pay down debt and spend less for almost half of the millennials
5:50 am
and gen zers the option for us is rain, rain, and rain. but we need the rain, kari. >> sure do. >> yes, we do. we have been talking about how much more rain we need to really try and put a dent in the drought, and it's coming. we are getting ready for the storm system to come in. starting on sunday early in the morning, and then continuing into early next week rbs as we start out, as you are heading out on this friday, it's clear but it is cold. that's what you will feel, temperatures in the upper 30s to start, and then going into today, we are only reaching in the mid-50s this afternoon, and then we will see the temperatures diving right back down, cooling down quickly, and we will be in the upper 30s once again with some spots near freezing, especially as you take a look like san martin.
5:51 am
once all of that continues into the weekend with the cold air, then we get ready for this atmospheric river. we will track this storm on every newscast, on every platform, and make sure you have the nbc bay area app so you can get alerts as rain approaches your location. we will see the rain in the north bay as early as saturday evening, but most of us by sunday morning. it continues into the day on monday as well as tuesday. then we have more rain behind that in the forecast on wednesday. so before this you want to make sure you are spending time cleaning up the leaves and the storm drains, and make sure the outdoor furniture is prepared for winds at 34 miles per hour, and we could see rain totals at four plus inches in some spots, and there will be snow possible on some of our bay area peaks. once again that street flooding could be possible due to the storm drains being clogged.
5:52 am
look at the rainfall totals this computer model is putting down. possibly nine inches of rain for the santa cruz mountains with most of us getting three to five inches of rain. for the sierra, it's hard to imagine we could see as much as 99 inches of snow in king dale, and south lakefront getting 72 inches of snow, and twin bridges, 90 inches of snow. we have been asking for it and could get it all at once with this big storm headed our way. vianey, what are you seeing for the morning commute? >> things have been pretty quiet, but i will step out because i have one small issue in fremont if you are traveling along north bay 880 before thornton avenue. there's a crash that you can see there that is causing a little bit of delays, because of the activity going on at the

improving when it comes to making it in the bay. and then walking out of class, and the new response from the district to that planned protests. we're talking about what a chilly start it is across the bay area. bundle up. winter is here. rain is on the way as well. we'll tell you when and where when "today in the bay" continues. it's 5:54. how do i know that you're not a weirdo? ♪ confessing, yeah ♪ ♪ oh, i've been shaking ♪ ♪ i love it when you go crazy ♪ what are you doing? ♪ baby, there's nothing holdin' me back ♪ i knew you were a weirdo.
