5:03 am
half the states tone. it's under the federal mandate issued by president biden. i say half because the number of republican-led states are fighting the mandate in court, so the mandate is taking effect first in jurisdictions that didn't challenge or drop their challenge against the requirement. those include some of the biggest states with some of the largest populations of senior citizens like california, florida, new york and pennsylvania. today's deadline is a moot point here in the golden state because california has required health care workers to be fully vaccinated since september 30th, and they must be boosted by next tuesday, february 1st. reporting live here in pleasanton, bob redell, "today in the bay." >> the booster shot deadline is quickly approaching for first responders in the north day. first responders in marin county have to show proof that they received the booster by tomorrow. now the vaccination rates among firefighters and law enforcement pretty high. according to the marin i.j.
5:04 am
firefighters vaccination rates in the county are between 91% and 100%. for law enforcement the rates are a little bit lower, from 84% to 100% there. agencies say those who aren't vaccinated will continue to wear masks and undergo surveillance testing and other protective measures. in the entire county 94% of residents eligible for vaccination are fully vaccinated. we certainly know there's so much to keep track of when it comes to covid, so if you've got questions, we've got answers. just head to our website and click on covid-19 faq. it's right up there in the trending bar. >> 5:04 for you and now had a major shake-up in the supreme court. justice stephen breyer is expected to announce his retirement as soon as soon. brie jackson is live with more on the future of the high court and his possible replacement. >> reporter: good morning, marcus. well, today president biden will meet with supreme court justice

5:08 am
they added revenue would bring in half a million dollars per year. many people are opposed to the zions. scientists at the link obvious industry say it would add to the light pollution and others argue it would distract drivers. >> so we asked the question is it worth it? is it worth it to trash the landscape in san jose, to destroy the architectural integrity and the historic character of the city for what, a tiny percentage of 1% of the city's operating budget? >> late last night the airport commission voted against the project. the city council will make the final decision next month. >> developing now, crews are making progress in the fire burning near big sur. highway one fully reopened and evacuation orders are lifted for roughly 500 people who are forced to leave their homes last friday. containment stands at 60%. firefighters say the strong winds whipped up embers from a controlled burn sparking this wildfire.

>> 5:08 right now taking a live look. the tower lit up for 949ers, taking on the rams this weekend. we're excited about that. ready to root them on. you can see court tower in the city. the fog not around. >> yeah. we've got some areas with some patchy fog but certainly not as dense as what we woke up to yesterday morning which is good because visibility say lot better for commuters. now, temperatures still cold though. right now in oakland it's about 40 degrees, but we're going to continue to see that trend upwards. san francisco is at 43. notice, too, any cloud cover that does linger will eventually make its exit by about 10:00, 11:00. we'll get more sunshine. temps will bump up into the 50s and low 60s for san francisco. now let's get a check of the roads with mike. >> viana, instead of talking about what is there, let's talk about what was there. good news. circle there getting to the golden gate bridge, a lot of slowing traditional just before
5:10 am
5:00 as crews headed there, all clear. so is the eastbound lower deck of the richmond centerville bridge. construction crews should be clearing getting ready for the dig to kick in a little later on. over here, this crew cleared as well. all lanes reopened on schedule for eastbound 880 through vallejo and right-hand tonight, the opposite direction has a closure starting at 11:00le about. i'll remind you again. meanwhile, the rest of the bay fully open and moving well. even out of the altamont pass, just a very little bit of slowing. back to you. >> thanks, mike. >> 5:10, giving back. the new way uber is helping those in need in the bay area, and items you can start donating. interest rates are going up, and some straight talk from elon musk all ahead in business news. but, first, we investigate, an east by a man serving time for terrorism charges getting his terror sentence dramatically

5:12 am
5:13 am
it is 5:13, and we eseeing some fog in the north bay, santa rows, "the new york post"o and napa. right now 33 degrees. we'll eventually bump up into the 40s but that's not until 9:00. bundle up. i'll guide you through the rest of the bay area temps in my full
5:14 am
forecast. >> yesterday. we had a lot of fog in the south bay. not on the map today. san matteo bridge, a clear view. look at the flat section in the foreground and high rise in the distance. we can see today going up and down depending on which direction people are driving. >> scott. good morning, mike. good morning, everyone. happy thursday to you as well. hopefully the worst is past for the stock market. it was fearing the fed would start talking about raising interest rates, and, of course, the fed has talked about it raising interest rates yesterday. jay powell speaking after the conclusion of the federal open markets committee's two-day meeting. there's no meeting schedule for february so the earliest rate hikes that would likely come would be in march. wall street was obviously freak out about this on monday. you can recall the huge dip and then recovery. things very calm indeed as we
5:15 am
inch towards the open this morning. apple will report profits today. now these rate hikes only affect banks directly, but, of course, whatever affects a bank is going affect you as well. the fed doesn't set -- control credit cards or interest, mortgage interest, but those rates do move up when the fed rate moves up, but paying more for money is the point. interest rates slow the economy and that slows inflation, at least on paper. tesla said last night it made record profit, and that's remarkable. what's even more remarkable is elon musk stepped away from his habit of he said the cyber truck, that unusual pickup truck, would be delayed as tesla worked on making its current lineup, same, too, for the semi truck and next roadster. rusk usually says new models are just around the corner. spotify has taken neil
5:16 am
young's music off the service after young asked them to. the musician is angry that spotify distributes joe rogan's podcast saying that he demonstrably spreads untruths about covid and vaccines. spotify said they had a great responsibility in balancing both safety for listeners and freedom for creators. now rogan often features guests who are absolutely incorrect about covid, like a recent guest who said covid cannot be spread aestimatematically which is entirely untrue according to the scientific communities. many american families saw it happen in their own homes. rogan's critics do point out one thing. there is one upside, marcus and laura, to rogan exclusively being on spotify, and that is you can't get him anywhere else which limits his reach. most podcasts, as you know, are available all over the place, all platforms including spotify
5:17 am
but also apple and apple podcast, google play, stitcher, et cetera. rogan is just spotify. >> his audience knows where he. >> absolutely. thanks, scott. new this morning, uber and the salvation army are partnering to try to help those in need. can donate gently used coats from today until saturday. >> it's a great way to keep a coat living and give it to someone else. the old coat has so much warmth to give. push a button and donate a coat. >> anyone in the bay area can take part. just open the uber app and use the promo code coat drive sf and then send a package to your location and the nearest salvation army list from the list below. under the drop-off section select the delivery method. all coats will be sold at
5:18 am
salvation army thrift stores which helps fund adult rehabilitation centers across the country. you can find all this information on the website on >> i love that, because i do have some coats that i've been trying to give away from when i lived back east. i don't need them now. >> maybe not as heavy here in the bay area. >> downtown san jose. one thing we do say here in the morning is, look, as beautiful as it looks, you can't tell how cold it is. it is a little cooler out there. a cool start for the morning. >> you won't need your snow jackets unless you're in tahoe and you will need a coat because 30s are still cold, fair enough, especially for us from california. >> california girls, laura and i. for us we're freezing over here. freezing here in the studios if you're back at home watching behind the scenes. that's how cold it is. 36 in dublin and 38 around the bay peninsula where we're also
5:19 am
seeing fog. visibility, doing okay in the south bay which is great but we still have areas of patchy fog in through livermore, the palo alto area and santa rosa visibility down to less than a mile and pretty dense through half moon bay. the fog will eventually make its exit and we'll get sunshine. san francisco at 43 degrees. by 9:00 a.m. it starts to sort of bump up into the 50, and if you look at the icons we've got plenty of sunshine. we've real he that high pressure keeping the sunshine around, but it's also been keeping us dry as well. and our temperatures will remain in the mid-60s for the south bay, 65. 67 for morgan hill and in through the east bay 63 for walnut creek. martinez 61, around the peninsula 61. for san matteo up through san francisco, 63 in mission, and it's going to get warm as well in through novato. 36 for novato, santa rosa 65. how long is this dry weather going to last? well, we were hopeful about a system making its move on sunday
5:20 am
into monday, but now the models are showing, you know, less of an agreement as for as if we're going to see any rain. if we do likely a slight chance heading into early monday morning but for the most part that system stays to the north and then we've got a system just offshore. now the impact of that system is going to be wind. not necessarily rain. what the wind is going to do it's going to actually dry us out even more. that drops the humidity and it's also going to keep the temperatures in the 50s heading into sunday and monday for san francisco so we cool off just a little bit. now let's see how the roads are doing with mike. >> everything is looking great right now, viana or almost everything, i guess. we'll look at the maps and we don't see that dark yellow highlighting the peninsula and the south bay like we saw yesterday. that was the nothing that was kicking in on the road weather index. everything down in through south county is clear so we move north and look in contra costa county and on this particular map everything looks great.
5:21 am
vianey shows santa rosa, a mile of visibility and got to look at the teams, driving for the longer drive. highway 4 and 580, no problems and the bay bridge toll plaza is clear. the view is clear. can you see the east shore freeway in the distance and so is the drive. yesterday's metering lights were turned on around 6:10 to see where they show up this morning. light traffic right now. >> that's amazing. >> the metering lights came on at 6:10, that's accuracy. we're getting closer to the winter games. coming up next on "today in the bay," we're introducing you to a california snowboarder who has already made quite a name for him self. >> and as the excitement builds for the niners game this weekend, we want to see your fan photo. take a look at the ones you see on our screen. make sure you post those and tag us @nbcbayarea. we'll be sharing these photos

5:26 am
and do something in a weird creative way and there's like there's a whole new world of possibilities right there. very creative and funned and things are always changing and avenues are always opening up for more possibilities. >> always cool to learn more about the athletes, right? >> really is. >> okay. a look ahead at the competition. we're telling the stories of how those athletes for team usa managed to arrive at the world stage going for gold so make sure you tune in to our special "journey to the winter games" at 6:30 saturday night right here on nbc bay area. >> and get yourself a duct tape wallet. >> coming up next, the top stories that we're following for you today including from i do to no, you don't. the attempted robbery gone wrong during a wedding photo shoot in san francisco and the new calls for city leaders to take action. plus -- >> you've heard a lot about the omicron surge. now we're talking about an

omicron subvariant or subtype. what does that mean for you? i'll explain what we know coming up. you're watching "today in the bay."

5:30 am
help combat the variant. and it's a cold start yet again in the bay area. we're in the 30s. i'm tracking how much longer this dry weather will remain in hour forecast for the bay area. good thursday morning to you. thanks so much for joining us. 5:30 right now. i'm laura garcia. >> and i'm marcus washington. only broadcasting right here for you on television and can you also watch us live on roku, amazon fire, apple tv and online. first, all new numbers are showing the end of results of weeks of unprecedented spread fueled by the highly infectious omicron variant. one in five californians have tested positive for covid-19 since the beginning of the pandemic. according to the "l.a. times," that's more than 8 million infections. >> and this morning bay area health departments are on alert after two cases of the new omicron subvariant are confirmed in the south bay. "today in the bay's" chris sanchez joins us with more on
5:31 am
ba-2. >> reporter: hi there. so we have heard all throughout the omicron surge that it was spreading faster than the delta variant, and now we know that that subvariant or that subtype is even more transmissible. let's take a look at what we know about omicron ba.2. there are currently 14 cases in california, two cases in santa clara county, and the data shows it's more transmissible, however not more serious. it doesn't make people more sick. this is only detected through genomic sequencing. you might catch this more easily but you're probably not going to get more sick. >> if you've been infected with omicron already, you'll be protected against ba.2 so it won't infect you, for example, because they are so similar, and no signs that it's more virulent.
5:32 am
>> reporter: now today moderna's chief medical officer is speaking about an omicron-specific booster that the company is developing. early data is promising showing that the specific booster offers greater effectiveness against the variant and is now in phase two trial. >> what we see is there's still protection, but it wanes by six months so that's important for us to know. >> reporter: now even as the omicron surge appears to be peaking and kind of dropping off here in california, health experts say it's important to remember that this will not be the last variant we see nor will it be the last variant of concern potentially. kris sanchez, "today in the bay." >> thanks so much, kris. >> and we put all the latest news you need to know about covid-19 on our streaming app. all have you to do is download it. it is free. download it on your roku, apple tv and amazon fire stick. just click on the covid what to

it happened just before 7:00 on the eastbound side of the bridge last night. that crash involved a big rig and a car. one person who became trapped inside that car sadly died. both the car and the big rig caught fire. traffic backed up for miles for several hours. one witness who was close to that crash says she thought that her life was in danger. >> we couldn't really back up, so it's really scary to be stuck behind, you know, a car that is engulfed in flames. the flames actually got so high that they were touching the top of the bridge, so it was really, really on fire. >> police have not released the name of the person who died in that crash. the cause is still unknown. it's 5:32 on your thursday morning, taking a peak outside. can you see the lights lighting up the beautiful bay bridge this morning. can you see it. we're saying parts of fog in some parts of the bay area, but not like the dense fog that we, at least in the south bay. >> yesterday. >> exactly. vine yeah is in this morning looking at that forecast for us. >> yeah. got a look ahead at your weekend

5:36 am
friday, into the upper 60s and we do have that high pressure that continues to dominate. a system just offshore is going to start to kick up some of those winds, so that will actually make us drier around here, but friday, saturday and sunday heading over to yosemite, we'll wake up to some of that cloud cover early on on saturday. temps in the mid-60s and then look at the overnight lows once again. 38 degrees into the early morning hours as well. so cold mornings but comfortable afternoons expected for the weekend. let's get a check of the roads with mike. >> viana, you mentioned big sur. highway 1 has reopened. that's good news. progress on the colorado fire down there. up here, we're looking at a little bit of slowing for highway 37 over there in vallejo, but viana talked about the weekend. we're talking about tonight where we're looking at traffic flowing up in towards the north bay. we're going to zoom over here where there is that closure going on. remember, it's westbound tonight. last night it was the opposite direction. this morning it's the commute direction. that's why they will reopen by 4:00 a.m.

5:42 am
be the court's first black woman to serve. now who that is we don't know yet. whatever decision is made to replace breyer it's not going to change the courts. even if the president biden picks someone very liberal, a dissent is a dis-september and in that event it doesn't matter where in the political spectrum it doesn't matter where the judge sat. unlike build back better democrats don't have to worry about the filibuster picking a supreme court judge because republicans changed the rules to a straight-up vote back when it was their turn to pick a judge. now democrats will need all 50 of their senators to vote yes. it's easy toe forgot the senate used to approve well-qualified,
