so it airs thursday, february so it airs thursday, february 24th at 06:30pm. when a truck hit my car, so it airs thursday, february 2the insurance company wasn't fair. i didn't know what my case was worth, so i called the barnes firm. i'm rich barnes. it's hard for people to know how much their accident case is worth. let our injury attorneys help you get the best result possible. and now most admired alum. get up there. this is so embarrassing. there's no way it's me. (giggling) man: you know her. you love her. ruh roh. what are you doing here? it's anna gomez! who? our first gigillionaire! with at&t fiber, anna's got the fastest internet with hyper-gig speeds. i didn't know you went to this school. we have a lot in common.
live like a gigillionaire with at&t fiber, now with speeds up to 5 gigs. limited availability. now with speeds up to 5 gigs. when a truck hit my car, the insurance company wasn't fair. i didn't know what my case was worth, so i called the barnes firm. i'm rich barnes. it's hard for people to know how much their accident case is worth.
let our injury attorneys help you get the best result possible. >> there was so much snow at the end of december. but today in the sea area, the california department of water resources conducted the second snow survey of the season up at phillips station. the manual survey recorded 48 and a half inches of snow depth and a snow water equivalent of 19 inches. we have had a
mostly dry january and the sierra snowpack, therefore, is down to about average for this time of year. it is agreed by everybody will need more winter storms in february and march to reach the levels needed. >> let's check in with chief meteorologist lawrence karnow. you know, it's amazing remember in the beginning of december, we're talking about snow levels may be about 14% of normal. then all of a sudden we had all that snow in the sierra nevada. we're up to about 200% normal. now, guess what? we're back down again to slightly below the average now at 90% of normal in the northern sierra nevada, 90% in the central and 95% of normal in the southern sierra nevada. and unfortunately, it doesn't look that promising in the long you were right here. now in the thick of our rain season and we've been on this dry spell. >> not unusual to get a dry spell in the middle of a our rain season. but this one now looking more extended. here's that big dome of high pressure. here's the long-range computer model put into motion and you see these
storms kind of roll over the top of that ridge kind of dumped over the top of that ridge head east. they get some snow on the salt area and also up in the colorado rockies. but other than that, we stay dry here. we see the winds kick up from time to time. another front comes by only to fall apart, leaving some high clouds behind. as we look into the weekend as well. and then behind that, we've got another system doing the same thing, running right into that strong ridge of high pressure. they get rain up in the pacific northwest. by the time that system gets here really just kind chewed up by that ridge of high pressure and then high pressure builds in behind that. so we're in this kind of this vicious cycle right now where we continue to see these storms come through, really to die, making their way in the california league behind some high clouds, but really some dry weather outside and that is about it. so overnight lows tonight with clear skies and gusty winds, 30's and 40's near freezing conditions. some spots inland by day tomorrow, we're enjoying some nice temperatures. generally a little bit above the average for this time of year. but it is going to be windy, especially over the mountain tops, breezy elsewhere,
keeping dry through the next few days. a few more clouds coming our way on thursday and dry throughout the weekend. temperatures next week getting near 70 degrees. >> and now kron 4 sports. >> the hometown kid is officially sailing off into the sunset after a little drama and back and forth over the weekend, tom brady took to social media today and announced his retirement from the nfl after 22 seasons in an instagram post, brady said i have always believed the sport of football isn't all in proposition. if 100% competitive commitment, isn't there, you won't succeed. and success is what i love so much about our game. he went on to say this is difficult for me to write, but here it goes. i am not going to make that competitive commitment anymore. >> i have loved my nfl career and now it is time the focus my time and energy on other things that require my attention. brady retires as
the most accomplished quarterback of all time. he won 7 super bowls and owns eveey major quarterback record. and the cool thing about all that. it all started right here in the bay. his friends and teammates back when he starred at serra high school in san mateo have all been locked in on his journey and his retirement. it's bittersweet. >> every year, you know, they're saying it's his last year. so then when tommy didn't come out and say that he's going to be retired right away. you know, i was holding on to hope just like everyone else. i would love to just see him play one more year, you know, selfishly but i think it's it's time he's given enough and it's time for him to spend time with his family and his kids are getting older. you know, he's accomplished everything. anything you hold so many records. he's given so much of the game. so i'm happy for him that, you know, now. it's time for him to go relax and just hang out and coaster rica and go do whatever he wants to do. >> yeah. hang out in coaster
rica with giselle. i could think of worse things to do than that. now over in santa clara kyle shanahan and john lynch continue to put the finishing touches on what was a roller coaster season in the biggest question mark heading into the offseason is what happens with jimmy garoppolo. some say it's an easy decision to move on from jimmy g and hand over the reins to trey lance, which makes a lot of sense. you did give up 2 first-round picks to acquire him, but kyle shanahan and john lynch were both very noncommittal as it pertains to that quarterback position will next year. they don't appear to be ready to publicly, at least say what their specific plans are, even if it may seem obvious on the other hand, jimmy garoppolo was a little more forthcoming. it's hard to, you know, put all the scenarios in play right now. but i think those things will work themselves out. >> i've had a great time here the niners organization with the everything has been awesome, but some ups and downs, obviously. but i yeah, i mean, i could. we'll see what happens. i guess.
>> the nfl may finally have to face the sins of his past and present really, we've always known the league has had its issues with diversity amongst the coaching and front office ranks just only one black head coach in the nfl has this speaks today and even colin kaepernick pointed to the blatant racism that he felt ran rapid in the nfl. now former dolphins head coach brian flores has sued the nfl and 3 teams. the dolphins broncos in giants. he alleges discrimination regarding his interview process is with denver in new york and his firing last month by miami. he also says that miami owner stephen ross offered to pay him $100,000 for each loss. sounds like he wanted to have a more legit reason to fire flores, but he did so anyway, even after a successful season in miami, all things considered the nfl, of course, has denied all accusations to
the ice. the sharks took on the tampa bay lightning in their final game before the all-star slash olympic winter olympic break. 2 goal game game tied at 2. all i should say. victor hedman score the game winner in overtime. tampa bay wins 3 to 2. and down in san antonio, the warriors on lake to of that texas 2 step road trip right now. they're down by 7 in the 3rd quarter. nic, there is cooking up those highlights. we'll have vote will have full highlights. won. that game goes final. that's your look at sports. back to you guys. all right, jason, thanks very much. >> we'll be right back. new at
