8:10 pm
upon where we see evidence of erosion of protection. >> so people above 50 would be one area where that could be the case. just last week, the white house told the public without more funding from congress, it won't have the money to provide all americans with a 4th shot. the booster plan for people over 50 reportedly aimed at protecting older americans ahead of any new potential wave. the cdc's director recently saying scientists were studying the evidence about a 4th dose. and so as we are following those daytime, we're also working within the fda and with our pharmaceutical partners, of course, to understand the benefit of that that 4th shot the timing of it and in whom it should be recommended. >> that was gaynor hall reporting for us tonight. up next, we do have a live report from hollywood as the 94th academy awards are underway right now. we're going to see all the glitz and glamour from one of the oscars after parties and president biden's

8:18 pm
now except the far east bay. and you guys are going to get within, you know, an hour or so. so it's moving east and it's coming up from the south. so that's going to keep it around all night, which is good news there. >> and it will be with you in the morning commute as well. you can see all covered up the yellows, the more intensity rain such as right around san francisco, san leandro as well heading to the east where it's just starting to make way through antioch, discovery bay. remember, it's going to some little bit of dry air. so when rain sometimes start as the fight, that virga thing, that evaporation of rain, even though you see it on the radar, check out our winds. we talked about this before from the south as the flow pattern will be. they do start to subside, however, by 05:00am. and that's when the wind advisory does expire. but then in the day tomorrow, they start to pop up a little bit because we're going to see popping up showers and even potentially thunder showers all due to the fact of getting that daytime heating. a look ahead of what we've got going on. this is sfo, which is having a ground delay right now of about 94 minutes. that's expected to last at least until midnight and that can sometimes cause a little bit of a domino effect,
8:19 pm
perhaps for flights that are coming and going a little bit. so that may cause you some issues. if you know, people in that type situation, rain and winds for tonight, possibly a thunder shower. that's more likely the daytime heating tomorrow. scattered showers, variable clouds, not as windy in for this week. variable clouds, cool, 60's, lower 70's by thursday. and as we get into friday, so looking at the big board map that marches on through and then by wednesday, another week front drops south. we don't think there's going to be anything in it except clouds and reinforcing slightly cooler temperatures. the weekend looks to be somewhat an eventful because we're just not getting the juice from these things and then maybe upstream something into next week. let us hope will check the 4 zone forecast for you on your monday. we know by that point it's all going to be about the daytime heating, isolated or scattered showers, potentially thunder showers. 50's will cover. so the coast around 60 along the bay side. 62 foster city palo alto about 63 in the south bay. 65 santa clara, san jose

behavior of the people in these videos is reprehensible. with that said what you don't see in those videos is the response to those incidents and the efforts we took and are taking in an attempt to hold criminals accountable. at the same time they came down this was their first the panama city beach. >> to walk away thinking this is this is the norm. it's not, you know, also that ms while we try to get a handle on this as quick as possible because it can get into the open. >> that was jay coulter reporting for us tonight. coming up in sports, the stanford women's basketball team is back in the final 4 sports director jason dumas has the highlights. >> and we need some cheerleaders here. look at this storm tracker. 4 is all lit up. it's going to be a wet night ahead with rain. sometimes a little intense and we have a wind advisory that's also in place to get a check that forecast

8:47 pm
knocks down the jumper right there at the 1st quarter buzzer. great moment there now. 2nd quarter key moment here, cameron brink. she picks up her second foul. she's a huge part of stanford's success. but guess what? fran believe he steps up in cameron's place. she was all over the floor there. she gets the layin to cut the lead to one 2nd quarter. stanford. takes the lead on this lexi hall she been so good this season playing in her hometown of spokane, washington. now more from haley jones. stanford doesn't by committee, but hey, leave really makes this team go. stanford up 3 at the half. now, fran, in cam, they're on court together. she gets offensive rebound, takes it out to cameron and she knocks down the wing tray all 3 of those 10, 6, 6, for the pac, 12 defensive player of
8:48 pm
the year. then it became the hannah and cam and i'm sorry, haley alexi show they scored every single point in the 4th quarter there. you saw 3 here. you see haley get the defender on her hit. she's just too big right there. and how how about the icing on the cake right here? lexi gets in the lane. 3 points. the hard way she is pumped up. stanford goes on to win. 59 to 50. so. just 2 more wins and they're going back to back national champions. let's head out to spokane back out to spokane. i should say. that is where we find kron. 4 contributor aj mccord, aj. we know. lacey and lexi. they had about 100 guests in town and then cameron brink. she's only by 5 hour drive from that stadium. was it a pro stanford crowd in there?
8:49 pm
>> it was the entire regional was a pro stanford crowd. but going back to the game against maryland. now, the interesting thing right is that texas is no stranger to trying to beat the cardinal on a home court environment because that's what they did back in november. but today, that home crowd absolutely playing a part in the stanford win over texas to punch their ticket to back-to-back final fours. >> thank you. a j. appreciate that. >> great coverage from aj mccord out in spokane. all right. that is your look at sports. we'll be right back after know we're we're going to get some warriors highlights into the warriors. they're struggling to form an

8:51 pm
frustrations, get the best of him dre. hit with a flagrant foul, but maybe it will wake up the team. no next possession scores right on draymond and is found. he picked up 3,001 possession dream on. so let's go down 15. all righty. 4th quarter now, draymond. trying to make amends. he gets the steal, goes all the way down. the court finishes through the contact. he would hit the free, be seeing 9 point game. later in the 4th during gets another steal and he's on the other and looking for the layin. he misses it probably got fouled right there. he lists the ref know about it. and guess what? dream on picks up. the tech does just losing momentum in. this right here was the kill shot. corey kispert called damion lee sleeping, knocks down the tray dobbs, lose one. 23 to one 15 after the game. draymond
