9:01 am
pockets working our way into the morning commute tomorrow and notice how that blew up in the sierra just expands as temperatures get colder. a lot of ice formation likely under that snow pack. that's going to be gained as this cold front pushes through. now temperatures are in the 40's and 50's right now. it's a pretty warm start. san jose at 51 oakland and san mateo each at 48 while the lay at 42 degrees currently rain jackets or your priority. just keep dry with some light showers out there this morning. reyna. john, thanks for we have had slick conditions off throughout the morning and we have accidents. >> like this one southbound want to one at silver avenue. so we are seeing delays all along one. oh, one, as you're traveling in the city right now. a little under look at that. 12 minutes as you're heading from the east bay into the city to that fremont street exit. but you still have very slick conditions. you don't want to drive fast. even though traffic is like this morning heading across towards the peninsula. little under 14 as you're traveling there out of richmond about 8 minutes head in a cross towards sandra fell, the
9:02 am
golden gate bridge. you've got some high winds there gusting across the air 21 minute 37 to the tolls. but remember, still pockets of water and flooding like here in oakland, southbound, 8.80, north of 9, 80 west in the south bay. let's check on conditions that are still very slick. that still showing light drive time so 85 to menlo park about 30 minutes. we're staying on top of your traffic will have more coming up. noel and james, we'll send it back to you. >> thank you very much. rain. and of course, we're going continue our team coverage by taking a quick live look here at storm tracker. 4. it looks like the rain has broken up nicely around. yeah. we're getting some pockets of relief. may be some of flooded areas will be able to kind of dissipate the water little will transmit up in the north bay all morning long. he's changed locations it i think you're a pretty high right now. well. >> i mean, the marin headlands. and right now you don't see my hood up. so we are taking a break from the rain, granted him a little higher. so it's just year. but
9:03 am
we wanted to show you this iconic shot of the golden gate bridge. just to show you what ou see are don't see any. it is. it's there, but it is not that beautiful. international orange that we're used to seeing because there's a blanket of fog mixed in with some mist on top of us. so it is a dreary day and just to show you how gusty the conditions are here. i mean, we're not way up high on a mountain marine helens is up but not really up and you can see just how gusty it is with all that brush right behind me, swaying back and forth. keep in mind, even though it's not going to slam us like what we saw last month with that atmospheric river. it is a gentle rain, but the roads are slick. there's a lot of paddling going on by all means wear a sweater underneath your jacket because one thing is constant rain or not. it is cold. that's why even have my gloves on this is the first time today and have my gloves on. >> that's how cold it is. i'll
9:04 am
take off my hat. in my hair is short and you can still see it swaying back and forth a little bit. so you can see how things are and i think it probably get a little stronger before it dies down just a little bit. this is the rain that we've been waiting for for the next 6 or 7 days just try to lead into it. i'm trying to lean into it. i don't fly off the cliff. that's how windy it here at police. tell me, will that you've got warm socks on. you did not like there when you're sliders on. >> come on now. oh, no, no, not check this out. look at these chose. i am you all morning that is. >> i still have it. i you know. >> and it's no big deal. use use the james james stay with me. stick with e and i remember guys from hawaii would walk around. it is going go the winter of all products.
9:05 am
you we well, i don't know about doing goal is 9 in the middle of a had to say. to do what you got in a cold blustery day. warm. well, stay warm. >> all right. thanks. happening today. governor newsom is expected to give. >> more information about a new mandate. requiring health care workers in california to get their booster shots. he announced the mandate on twitter last night saying they're stepping up efforts to get people vaccinated and boosted. it comes as data is showing the omicron variant is increasing across the state. that's why the governor says our hospitals need to be prepared. infectious disease expert at ucsf. doctor peter chin-hong does agree with the governor. >> is it going to be sick just like everybody else, not very sick because all of them have been vaccinated. >> but sick enough or identified on testing that they'll have to stay home for 10 days.
9:06 am
>> governor newsome is going to hold a news conference later this morning is going to release a little bit more information on the mandate. want to go to into effect. that sort of thing. that's coming up at 1130. >> let's go to the south bay now because san jose mayor sam liccardo is now proposing just a proposal, but including booster shots in the city's vaccine mandate right now. all city employees as well as visitors to any city owned properties have to show that they have been fully vaccinated. if this goes through. they also have to prove that they're boosted as well. the only exception would be very young children who can't get the booster yet and people who have been vaccinated but just not long enough to be eligible yet for a booster. >> we know the vaccines wear off over time. that is they're affect their effectiveness declines over many, many months. we all know that we need boosters. >> again, this is just a proposal. but if it is approved, it would make san jose the first city in california to have a requirement like that. the
9:07 am
city leaders are expected to talk about this more on their january 5th meeting. >> up in the north bay. solano county has recorded its first covid-related death and a baby. a tragic story. doctors say it crucial reminder that we need to get vaccinated. and it's not just to protect ourselves but it's to protect others to like. >> children who can't get vaccinated right now. kron fours camila barco is in the newsroom. she has all the details that we know so far camila. >> yes, and james snow, all one local health expert says that this death is an example to keep our guards up. the doctor even recommends kids younger. then 5 to get tested before being with family and going to those holiday parties. now currently babies toddlers wr kids younger than 5 are not eligible to get vaccinated. the child in solano county was less than a year old officials say the child died after contracting the delta variant and since the start of the pandemic
9:08 am
about 342 people in that county have died because of the virus. now, the county's health officer says that pediatric deaths related to covid are rare, but children can still get sick and die from the virus. now, here's what infectious disease specialist doctor peter chin. hong says you should think about we're bringing your kids to those holiday parties. >> parents you know, just think about risk and benefit. i usually think about kids being more of a minute to households. so if there is somebody who is older than 65 maybe unboosted unvaccinated somebody who's immunocompromised in the household. you want to be extra careful as the unit. that is be careful about ways traveling avoid is the kid is right to wear a mask. so kind wear mask under the age of 2 months. so these are some of the considerations. i think about.
9:09 am
>> now doctor tang hong says that there is hope for kids under the age of 5. he says the covid vaccine has shown to be effective for kids who are 2 months old to 2 years old. he expects for more information in the early part of next year about that pediatric covid vaccine now health experts saylthere are some ways to reduce the spread of covid. for example, wear a mask avoid large crowds and poorly ventilated areas stay home. when you're feeling sick, get tested. if you have symptoms or have been exposed to someone who has covid and be mindful of people who have health problems. the elderly and of course, young kids now solano county is continuing to offer covid-19 vaccines at there mass vaccination clinic. if you're interested, it's at the solano county fairgrounds in valais. whoa. and that clinic is operating until january 29th james smile. back to you. >> thank you very much. camilla. >> over in the east bay. the oakland city council has decided to require proof of vaccinations in order to enter
9:10 am
some businesses. similar rules are already in place in san francisco and berkeley as well. and some oakland business owners say this move is a long overdue. >> it all starts february 1st. this is the list of the types of businesses where you're going to have to show proof of vaccination in oakland at restaurants bars coffee shops gyms, movie theaters museums. that sort of thing. chris is the owner of chop house and calavera and oakland. he says if this is going to protect his customers and also protect his staff members. he says even though restaurants do have the option of asking customers for proof of the vaccine. many have avoided doing so because they didn't want to start any potential confrontations from a unvaccinated people pushing back on the rules. but with the mandate on the way he says it's going make things run a lot smoother. >> i think that the city mandating it is a really important having this small businesses kind of. seizing
9:11 am
them. some says small business decided that they would have they would they would ask people for their vaccination status and that creates a little bit of a difficult situation for our staff where, you know, there could confronted by people saying that, you know that like this idea but with the city, give us that mandate saying that we have we have to do this. it gives us the ability that actually, you know, for speed by have vaccine so after a business so i bought it. i think it's long overdue. i would love to see this 6 months ago. but i think this is a is a great step. >> starting january 15th businesses are going to start posting signs letting customers know about the upcoming changes. the senate says he's actually the next few weeks getting the staff trained on how to check vaccination cards. have a spot real ones versus fake ones because those are circulating around and how to cross reference information on ids. john. >> well, it is misty out there today. a lot of that light rainfall is let up. but it's still wet because of this low cloud cover and some of the drizzly misty conditions that
9:12 am
we do have rainfall picks back up tonight. keep the umbrellas and rain jackets with you today and the rest of the forecast isn't looking much drier. i've got your forecast even in like conditions today, we've seen our fair share of accidents out there because of the weather and conditions will have
9:13 am
9:14 am
i didn't have health insurance, not because i didn't want it. i worried it was too expensive and i was having a hard time paying our other bills. but now, for the first time in our lives, i can do both. covered california makes health insurance easier in every way. with financial help for millions of us and free assistance to compare your options. covered california. this way to health insurance. enroll by december 31st at >> welcome back. it's 9.14 on this is a wet wet it is watching very wet out there.
9:15 am
it seems like certain parts of the bay are getting breaks here and there from my heavy rain. but. >> it's all just still very damp. it is. and we're not out of it yet even though it looks like maybe your neighborhoods getting a brief pause in all of johns in the weather center talking more about that. hey, john. yeah, definitely wet wednesday conditions for sure, guys, it's mostly staying on the light. nice and calm side across the bay area today. so this bodes well for us, even though you will have to make that adjustment as far as what you're wearing is, you're venturing out. shouldn't shut things down across the bay just slow you down as it is so wet out there. san jose is not looking bad right now. you may even see a few spots of sunshine breaking through the gray here and there today, showers are going to remain pretty light. as you can see, it's pretty quiet across the bay right now. up in the sierra nevada snow fall at the very highest of elevations. rain snow mix to just flat out rainfall. a the sierra in those lower elevations, which is helping to melt a little bit of the snow pack up their unfortunately not enough to be concerned the north bay
9:16 am
looking at some misty conditions right the core of the bay area's also a little bit quieter. and in the south bay, it's really just coming down up in the santa cruz mountains. the sierra as i noted, is in the midst of bit of a break from snowfall at areas like lake tahoe where you're actually just seen it coming down rainy right now. this is actually a bit concerning because as we do see re freeze tonight and then some snowfall on top of that layer of ice. it is going to get really, really slick up there. so my advice, if you have to head up into the sierra do it during daytime hours today the sooner the better with this forecast do not wait until the very icy conditions tonight. that's going to be really rough. we've got our next cold front sliding in overnight tonight that's going to drop temperatures over the course of this forecast. so today is easily the warmest of the storm. some light rainfall that will move in and out across the course of the day today. so you will get breaks. kind of like we're in the midst of now tonight that line of showers right along this cold front. pretty evident picking up rainfall really hard rain right in the middle of your evening and tomorrow
9:17 am
morning's commute is going to be a rough one with some pretty intense rainfall coming down. look at how the blue judge generally expands further and further across the sierra as we make our way through this forecast. that's because snow level will fall in elevation tomorrow afternoon. we'll get bit of a break from the rain, another dose of it overnight thursday night into friday morning and even bigger break during the day on friday for christmas eve. that's going to be the biggest break of this forecast. so if you need to do some travels this weekend. friday. earlier on in today's the day to do it friday night christmas eve into christmas itself. rain is going to pick back up snow at lower elevations likely to cause some troubles on. i 80 i 5 up in north of redding as well as 50 heading up to later towards lake tahoe rainfall continues sunday, monday into tuesday. off and on. we start to see less and rainfall potential after that. but that's at least a solid 7 days ahead of us with those showers we're already in a winter storm warning up in the sierra nevada conditions worsen. tonight, as i mentioned, are anywhere from 4 to 8 feet of
9:18 am
snowfall piling up through these combined systems up in higher elevations. now, today's daytime highs easily or warmest of the forecast. we're in the 50's to low 60's a lot like we were yesterday. we're going to be taking in this many 60's in this forecast. so if you like that mild field today is certainly a good one to still take care of some things just of course, getting the rain jacket out and slowing it down as we are so slick on so many roadways. tomorrow is going to be a bit cooler. but the real cool down actually arrives this weekend. that's when daytime highs will barely be in the low 50's upper 40's towards next week. heaviest rainfall will be overnight tonight. then again friday night into saturday morning, which of course is christmas eve into christmas day heaviest of snowfall will be these especially this weekend into next week. when temperatures fall as cold as they will be rain. john, thank you for that. a lot of rain out there. so we do have an accident, a little further down in the. >> san francisco south san francisco southbound one. oh, one south of south airport boulevard in addition to that,
9:19 am
you have some flooding there. so that traffic collision and flooding. it's probably what led to that accident traveling from the east bay into the city right now under 10 minutes. so traffic is light but conditions out there. a really, really going want to make you drive slower heading across towards the peninsula. you can see the puddles of water on the bridge. there still says it's about a 30 minute drive for you as you head out of richmond across towards center failure at about 9 minutes for your drive there with water on our cameras. all of them. 21 minutes 37 to the tolls here in oakland. a lot of roadway flooding as you're traveling along 8.80 specifically southbound and north of 9.80, west here. so we're seeing a lot of water there and we'll check on the south bay as you're traveling along 1, 1, 85 to middle part. it will take you about 29 minutes to make that drive james, back to you. >> time now to talk winners and losers on wall street with financial expert rob black joining us remotely this morning. i believe up in tahoe know you're still at home. robber thought you'd be up in the mountains. been out.
9:20 am
