6:01 am
minutes heading across towards the peninsula. and let's look at one. 0, one in the south bay, as you're traveling, 85 to menlo park 30 minutes. no issues along 2.80, or 17 at this hour. darya james, back to you. thank you, ray. 6 o'clock right now and take a look at this. the strong winds we've been talking about blowing through marion county. this was yesterday and that high wind advisory is going to be with us through tomorrow morning. yeah, i'm not going away anytime soon. and for good reason, too. >> not only is it making it a little dangerous with those trees, but also picking up the fire danger to affect up in marin county. they're taking it serious. they have crews positioned ready to jump on anything that may pop up. >> even though you know, we're we're in the winter season. we just haven't had the rain that we would normally be getting months. our last trains been over a month ago. so our fuel conditions are prime for a wind event like this, that actually have a fire that could spread. and just like we
6:02 am
saw monterey to fire, you know, put 1000 acres down and one nights over we're taking it seriously. >> yeah, they're ready to roll. just in case was what you want. they're on high alert through tomorrow. and also this is prompting a burn ban in marion county. the fire department has also asking you to avoid certain areas like the mount tam watershed until we get past this. this with the area later this week and also look up to be careful when the branches are swaying like that. sometimes they come down and that was the case here. >> this was down in san jose where we had a tree branch come down and you can see those pretty big one to 2 kids were hurt when it came down. they had to go to the hospital. that should be okay. the only had minor injuries, but as a result, they had to close this park there all in all, you know, it could be worse, but obviously want to be very careful. that's why they do have some parks closed until this wind event is over and they get a chance to go in there. just double check all the tree branches. make sure nothing's threatening to come down on anybody who's going to be out for a hike.
6:03 am
>> and yeah, that looks like a lightning strike level tree lot off in the east bay health officials in alameda county say the worst of the omicron covid surge is behind us. let's hope that's true. crawford's going to bark has been following the story. >> joining us now live with that update. good morning, kayla. >> good morning, guys. yeah, county's health officer said that the county may be past the peak of the omicron surge, but that doesn't mean alameda counties. alameda county is out of the woods yet according to mosque case, rates and hospitalizations are falling and he says case rates are going down. we're slowly. then they went up. so, for example, alameda county saw its peak ideally covid cases on january 10. it was at 266.7 cases. then that's 4 to january. 25th when that number dropped to 146. now, that's a good sign, says that case rates are still high. more than 400 people are in the hospital with coronavirus and about 74
6:04 am
people are in the icu county's dashboard shows that case rates hospitalizations and intensive care cases. all pete in january now is case rates says that people might see covid restrictions. ease li indoor masking. however, he says that face coverings are going to continue to be important, especially when you're 6 sic excuse me, health experts continue to push for the vaccine, says the best way to protect yourself against covid says that out the county has not seen its health care system overwhelmed like other places where there's lower vaccination rates in alameda county, 81.4% of the population is vaccinated. now darya james have been talking about this for the last 2 years when his covid going to end. when are we going to go back to reality? the county health officer in alameda says that we probably won't go back to how we were doing before the pandemic. but he says that
6:05 am
we are getting closer to what we've been calling the new normal. so we just have to see how other counties besides allogeneic is in the coming weeks for now. back to you bag to to reality thank very much. that's ring in. >> the woman okay. 6, 0, 5 right now. >> all right. now let's get to some other news here. actually, it's going to a lot easier to get a free covid pcr test in san mateo county. now that the county has partnered with carbon health, they're working together to make 2000 free tests available each day at the san mateo event center to walk a clinic so you don't have to make an appointment. they'll be open tuesdays through sundays from 8 in the morning till 4 in the afternoon and results from these tests. come back within 48 hours. so there you go. >> pfizer has rough. it officially requested from the fda to get emergency use authorization for their %fizer covid vaccine for really little kids under the age of 5 are the only ones who right now can't get the shots.
6:06 am
roughly 19 million children across the u.s. who are unable at this point. they will be when it gets approval. federal regulators are expected to look over the data and they could approve pfizer's 2 dose vaccine for the little kids by the end of the month. pfizer's early data suggests that 2 doses is safe and produces an immune response. the company, however, is also testing a three-dose regimen. >> i think we need to be thinking about these vaccinations kind of going forward in general is a three-dose series set. obviously the 2 toasted, you know, was insufficient against the omicron variant. and the company has not released any safety concerns with the 3 doses and kill kids who are under 5 years old. >> data from the cdc shows hospitalization rate for that age group right now are on the rise. >> well, there could soon be another new covid vaccine available in the u.s. drugmaker novavax is asking the fda now for emergency use authorization for its new protein based vaccine. the
6:07 am
company says the clinical trials conducted so far pretty positive about 90% effective. and it's made using small laboratory built pieces of the coronavirus, which is kind of how traditional vaccines are developed and because it is protein based people who at the moment can't. really use the m a mrna shots because they react to it. they would be eligible for this protein based on. so it's more suited for them. the vaccine is administered in 2 doses about 3 weeks apart. and if the fda does give novavax a green light, the company says they're already prepared to deliver their first 100 million doses immediately. now some breaking news overnight. a san jose man is expected to survive after being stabbed. it happened on west santa clara street last night. police say the victim have life threatening wounds when they found him. %o they rushed him to the hospital. so far, no arrests, but maybe we'll keep you updated as we learn more in the south bay. san jose has had 7 pedestrian deaths so far this year. and we're just starting the month of february lot more than
6:08 am
we've seen in years. past will tran live in san jose. with more on that, i will. >> the disturbing thing, james and areas if they keep this pace up, they're not only going to match last year's number. there shattered. i mean, 10 so far as far as traffic fatalities, 7 involving pedestrians. by the time it's should be into triple digits. and that is why they are warning drivers out there until they take measures. it is up to drivers to keep their eyes peeled because most of these collisions have happened in the overnight hours when it is very dark and visibility, obviously not as good as in broad daylight. now, this latest victim actually was hit back on january 23rd at new hall and the alameda. so it's not too far from the san jose police department. this time this person was a man was in the crosswalk at the time at about 4.40, in the morning. the driver actually stopped momentarily. so it appear that
6:09 am
the driver realize what happened but kept going. so they're still searching for that driver as far as the other collisions that have happened? well, i can tell you that all most of them have involved the homeless. >> and they have been outside the crosswalk. them know that she blaming the homeless, rainy thing. they're just saying this is a fact in this particular case and all the other cases. also, it seems like in the overnight hours and then those cases that were not in the crosswalk. often times when the collision took place, they are still searching for many people, including the driver that hit that man back on january 23rd. so there's still an investigation in that particular case while they investigate, they're also looking into ideas on how to make the roads safer in san jose. that's according to the police department. >> way ahead of the pace in terms of traffic fatalities for this time last year, i believe one word to april when
6:10 am
we have this many traffic fatalities, one pedestrian death in our city is one too many. and we're at 7 for the month of january. a lot of variables in this equation, how we're going to fix this. we're talking, you know, the department of transportation. different things that we can do to kind of mitigate what's been happening. lee? >> so james duryea, this man was hit on january. 23rd died from his injuries on january 20th. just to give you some texture, some context of all of this. they do not reach 10 traffic fatalities until april of last year. they had 60 altogether. so i again at this current pace, guys, they are looking at possibly well over triple digits by the time it is over. and that's why they're telling us we are the front first line of defense to be careful while we're driving in the overnight hours, especially back to you. all right. thank you. will. >> it's 6.10, and still ahead on the kron 4 morning news. 2
6:11 am
people shot. >> at a spa in oakland. we'll take a look at what police say happened. and president biden promising to nominate a black woman to the u.s. supreme court will tell you what one lawmaker says that's discriminatory. and we are looking at conditions outside this morning that are nice and clear, but it is definitely still windy as it will be through the day today. >> your forecast is ahead. >> and it's early, but we're already seeing some delays out there along our highways. we'll have a look at that your drive times. once we get back from break.

>> 6.13, you know, we don't blurs gobblers, dollars. whatever. punxsutawney phil, where operators, we don't need a groundhog, we've got the ground stick. we get the stick to put the and the 6 says, well yeah, we're doing great above average, actually. but now that the cave. >> re from that from that first official snow survey looks like we are just slightly under the snow totals. we're just updated by the department of water resources and a show that the snowpack is only now 92% of normal for this moment in the months. but state is not as cute down the fpeld, but it is a lot more accurate. you do. okay. so handling us right? because john, we're actually talking about phil. the groundhog. >> and they said he's you said he's only 40% accurate. yeah.
6:15 am
>> 40% accurate. and that's from the national weather service there like cautious about phil. right? but maybe like like they said in our little life hit with them. it's the human interpretation of fill that could be moves his nose the wrong way or something. you know, the stick is pretty accurate, though. and unfortunately, so that means that we have lost a lot of snowpack in the sierra after such a dry january. so at the start of january, we're sitting at a nice and healthy, 150% of average. that was really nice. now, a few dry weeks have dropped us below that 100% mark. now on a typical year, we'd be like, alright, we're hanging out close to average. this is ok, but we were doing so well in december and everyone was so optimistic that this is a little bit discouraging to see how much snow pack we have lost after such a dry and mild january, hoping things turn around here within the next 10 days because, well, at least for the next 7 to 10 days, things are definitely not going to be offering up any
6:16 am
new snow or rain for the bay area. for that matter, skies will remain clear and dry conditions out there going to continue on this dry trend for future with this high-pressure ridge to our west, continuing to shoot the jet stream to our north. it does dip down and give the rest of the country that winter weather we've been missing out on. but our winters break continues. that same high and low were caught in the middle of it and that's resulted in this very strong wind from the north and northeast that has pushed through the bay yesterday and will continue to today. windiest conditions will remain in the north bay mountains gusting into a 40 to 50 miles per hour range. a little calmer by comparison near the bayshore in the south bay, but a fairly breezy day for all of us and if you remember getting outside yesterday, especially on a hike in the east bay or north bay hills, you definitely felt that wind now the north bay mountains or windiest spots and then that deep orange, those are high wind warnings remaining through tomorrow morning, golden hues being wind advisories also remaining through tomorrow morning
6:17 am
across the bay area. as far as temperatures go today, we will be mostly back into the low 60's comparable to yesterday. pretty similar feel it's windy, clear. and on the cooler side yet again. so just make sure to keep those jackets close by not just this morning, but into the afternoon, san jose at 61 today, fremont hayward at 60 degrees. some 50's for inland valleys. oakland, you'll be at 62 degrees. one of the most mild spots along with toledo and pony show. looking ahead of next 7 days. temperatures gradually trend upward and by the start of next week, actually nearing 70 degrees. so even though punxsutawney phil says winter 6 more weeks of it doesn't look like this next week is going to be bringing any wintry weather to california hoping that comes true here by the middle of the month. reyna. john, thanks for that. all right. if you're hitting the roads this morning, we do have some delays to tell you about >> this so traveling along 6, a tz are on the southbound and northbound side. both have 2

6:19 am
california secretary of state shirley weber suggested maybe shortening the recall ballot to just a single yes or no question. maybe eliminating question to altogether, which asks voters then to pick a replacement candidate. >> is this something that needs to be called circumstances it's become just does this person better than the other? 43? >> yeah. weber also suggested the state lawmakers consider raising the standards to recall a governor extending the timeframe to have a recall and limiting the number of attempts to recall someone no action was actually taken it yesterday's hearing. but state lawmakers have more than 2 weeks to file their proposals. any changes, though, will ultimately up be up to the voters to decide. >> it's 6.19, and president biden is trying to win over republicans for his pick to the u.s. supreme court. he's trying to replace retiring justice steven briar. yeah. reshad hudson joining us from dc with the very latest on the progress so far. good morning were shot. good morning, james

6:21 am
most depressing things about democrats today. they're very comfortable discriminating based on race. the white house pushed back against the criticism the president is discriminating. take senator cruz himself. >> he had no objection to donald trump promising he nominated women in 2020, repeat, no objection at all. >> and president biden says he will name his selection for the supreme court by the end of the month reporting in washington reshad hudson, back to you. all right. thank you very much for shot it. 6.21 and coming up on the kron 4 morning news police are looking for clues to help them find a missing bay area woman. we'll see where they got some evidence.

6:26 am
see their own possibilities for the future that they know the path wasn't easy, that he worked extremely hard to get to where he is. and i think that, you know, makes him such a role model for for the students here at sarah, knowing that they can do the same thing, if that's what they desire. there's been a lot of speculation about what's next for brady. those i spoke to tuesday say they're not sure professionally but know that personally want to enjoy time with his family. >> from his wife and kids to his parents who still live in the area in san mateo. i'm rob nesbitt kron. 4 news. >> 2 staff members with the oakland unified school district are now on strike. students are walking out of the classroom. all of them in protest of the possibility of school closures on live with all the details coming up.

6:30 am
that will be calmer than other areas. once you head up into the east bay hills valleys, as well as the north bay. that's where you start to see these advisories again in the gold hughes and up in the north bay, where you see that orange, those are high wind warnings were going to our strongest wind gusts, which is you can see the north bay. he's already in the midst of 40 to 50 mile per hour gusts this morning. watch your travel on 80 this morning. our bridges as well as our upper elevation mountain passes. all these areas are going to see our strongest of gas. if you are carrying a load and have a high-profile vehicle, you're especially going to feel the effect of those stronger gusts as you're driving around 40's and 50's for your current temperatures. it's a mild morning. you can actually think the wind for that helping to keep conditions from dropping to a down into the 30's like we see on our still are calmer. mornings will be talking about what to expect after these winds die down in the rest of your forecast. first, though, on over to rain out with a look at the roads, are we holding up? all you know what? we are making our way through this morning. it doesn't mean we don't have issues, though, but
6:31 am

6:46 am
skies are beautiful and clear, as you can also see from bark and arrow shot. it's a beautiful mild morning. that wasn't for the wind. i think everyone will want to be out there. the high pressure to our west low to our east that's bringing winter to the rest of the country. this is resulting in the strong gradient which is kicking up this offshore wind that continues through the day today, north bay by far windy, a spot, especially the mountains, but inland east bay hills and valleys, as well as coastal areas will be looking at conditions, quite windy as well. even the bayshore 20 to 30 miles per hour gas. well in excess of 50 miles per hour in those areas in orange, in her upper elevations of the north head above 2000 feet. that's where winds will be the most substantial re of the highest fire risk as well as the highest potential the breeze making out on the roadways like branches and potential for downed power lines, too. now today's daytime highs, not a huge change from yesterday. we're keeping it in the upper 50's to low 60's. we are a little bit more mild than yesterday with a few more 60' on the map today. i would keep
6:47 am
those jackets on hand even into the height of the afternoon as temperatures will be cool enough paired with those winds that is going to feel brisk. oakland, one of her more mild spots along with allay in benicia as well. sandra fell all at 62 degrees today. looking ahead at our next 7 days, temperatures remain in the low 60's today tomorrow into the start of the weekend. after that, we start to climb, though, into the upper 60's and near 70 by the start of next week. tomorrow is when winds come down. so the weekend going to be beautiful, going to be really comfortable next week. going to be really comfortable, too. just hoping for some rainfall sooner than later as we continue this dry trend. reyna. tom, thanks for that. comfort is never a you know, john mentioned it. we're still seeing those windy conditions out there. >> so take it slow as you're traveling along the bay bridge or the antioch bridge as well. let's get a look at some of those delays out. there were seen accidents like in seminole northbound 6.80, south of 84 east. we had an earlier one on the southbound side of 6.80, but that has
6:48 am
been clear. now we're just looking at the one on the northbound side. so we are starting to see slight delays there out in hayward, southbound 8.80, north and west, a street, an accident. and so things are starting to slow down a bit as you're traveling along 80 through haber heading into the city right now. 14 minutes the meteor lights are on the traffic moving along there at a slow pace. and those high winds will slow down san mateo bridge about 14 minutes heading across towards the peninsula. and leave you with a look at the richmond. sandra fell bridge about 10 minutes this morning for your drive. darren james, back to you. it's official tom brady out. >> brady making the official announcement in a heartfelt instagram post thanking fans thanking teammates, coaches. crawford sports director jason dumas takes a closer look at him. he's career his legacy and his bay area roots. >> after a little drama and back and forth over the weekend, tom brady took to
6:49 am
social media and announced his retirement from the nfl after 22 seasons in an instagram post, brady said i have always believed the sport of football is in all in proposition 100% competitive commitment. there. we 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 goes, i'm not going to make that competitive commitment anymore. i have loved my nfl career in now. it is time to focus my time and energy on other things that require my attention. brady retires of the most accomplished quarterback of all time. he won 7 super bowls and every major quarterback record and the cool thing about all that it started right here in the bay area, 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. well, it's bittersweet. >> every year, you know,
6:50 am
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 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. >> over in santa clara kyle shanahan and john lynch continue to put the finishing touches. what was a roller coaster season and the biggest question mark heading into the offseason is what happens with jimmy garoppolo. some may say is an easy decision to move on from jimmy g and hand over the reins to trey lance, which is makes a lot of sense. you did give up 2 first-round picks to acquire him. but kyle shanahan and john lynch. they were both
6:51 am
noncommittal as it pertains to the quarterback position next year. they don't appear to be ready to say publicly at least what their specific plans are even it may seem obvious to the outside world. on the other hand, jimmy garoppolo, it 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 here has been awesome. but some ups and downs, obviously. but i yeah, i mean, i could. we'll see what happens. i guess. >> let's go down to texas. does in san antonio on game 2 of a back-to-back steph wiggins, porter junior, draymond and company all out tonight. 3rd quarter, lonnie walker. >> he lays it in to give the spurs a 17 point lead. seems all but over for golden state. but they slowly clawed their way back. gary pain with the steal. you have 5 of those in 17 minutes. nothing finishes on the other end sick when mill take 19 off the bench. 6
