8:13 am
8:14 am
>> happening tomorrow. look, yeah, the chinese, lou noon lunar new year parade is coming back to san francisco the year of the rabbit, which if you don't know, symbolizes longevity, peace and prosperity, and they sure are hoping that a lot of folks will come in enjoy the local area. maybe visit a shop or restaurant or to spread that prosperity around. they're thinking maybe a million people might show tomorrow and people. so they're really
8:15 am
working around the clock to make everybody safe and make sure that it goes smoothly and take a listen. >> that's why it's important that you not only in the parade, but in the perimeter, in the community surrounding the parade. so people understand that we're out there and we're there to support them. >> so yes, the parade starts at 5. those with 5 to yeah. and i and i don't know the actual praise can take that long. their stuff going on, though, in chinatown, with the parade and other kind of street, saturday and sunday. i think they want you to take public transport and we want, of course, no rain at this tomorrow night would be nice job, right? right. but >> we is that going to happen, it all depends on the timing of those showers. kind of like what we've got right now. >> oh, yeah, absolutely. it's all about the timing guys. and we are seeing this morning being the wettest time of day. a bit of good news for this afternoon and then pretty much all day long tomorrow is that we're going to be taking a break from the rain. it won't be until tomorrow night. well, after dinner time that showers push right back in now, san
8:16 am
jose. look at this. you do have some fresh rainfall that's making its way through down there, starting to dry out for the north bay peninsula. it you're still in the midst of it all, though, really coming down now that that band of showers, this push further eastward really just skirting north of san jose and making its way up seminole 6.80, and up north from the tri valley from there. that's where heaviest of spots are really starting to see activity diminishing further north soon to be followed by the peninsula. east bay and the very last holdouts being the for the south spots in the bay area. now, this low pressure area already nudge that high pressure ridge out. first dose of rainfall this morning. the next was the one that was initially concerned about with lunar new year festivities. but good news is that it is rolling in later rather than in the middle of the parade. so this is such good news. futurecast shows a dry afternoon for us today. tomorrow starts dry. and we stay that way during daytime hours. really not looking likely that rain won't push through until around 9, 10:11pm, tomorrow, widespread pockets of heavy rain at times during your overnight hours
8:17 am
and a chance. watch out for this on sunday morning, especially of some thunderstorm development to close out the weekend. now, as far as the sierra goes, we've got multiple feet of snowfall piling up up there. we do have a winter storm watch to become a warning. very likely starting tomorrow afternoon through sunday. we are going to see strong winds of 50 miles per hour. plus, paired with that loose snowfall of one to 2 feet that will be freshly falling. now, today's daytime highs in the 50's oakland down through fremont each of 58 degrees. san jose down from yesterday's mid 60's to the upper 50's tomorrow. temps will rebound just a little bit. rainfall pushes in well after dinner time tomorrow night lingering into sunday morning. and then the rest of the forecast dries back out. great job. thank you for that. we are far from friday light today going on about 15 minutes. >> along 101. it's 85 up in the parking jonathan talking about the rain situated along the peninsula there. so definitely drive slow. also factor in the bart is rolling running slower trains today
8:18 am
about 20 minutes because of those slick conditions. 24 minutes as you're heading into the city this morning, drive slow. the accident is still there near that fremont street exit. the drive times aren't going up. so i'm going to say they're working on getting that off of the bridge. there is probably not causing a major backup. 23 minutes. 82 want to one very slick, very wet 8.80, down towards know. pete is about 46 minutes for you. there crockett down towards the maze nearly 30 minutes. so definitely slower. and highway 4, antioch into conquered about 33 minutes. daria. james, back to you. thanks. a lot of rain 18 and there's some good news for homeowners. mortgage rates fell this week, too. >> the 5% range is the first time since september. we've seen at that low the rate dropped wednesday after federal reserve chair, jerome powell said inflation had cooled. mortgage rates have been sliding since october, and it's already having an effect increasing buyer interest pending home sales rose in december for the first time in 6 months. and home builders have also seen a
8:19 am
renewed interest which is been attributed to the lower mortgage rates. >> well, just in this morning, the january jobs report is out and it was much stronger than expected. more than 517,000 jobs were added last month. well, beyond wall street estimate of 187,000, the unemployment rate also dropped to 3.4%, which is a new half century low. now, this kind of growth is good for workers because that means they're in demand. they've got a lot of options to choose from, but it's not so good for employers because that may have to keep raising wages to attract workers. that pushes prices for goods and services up, which makes things more expensive and ultimately it made your money doesn't buy as much classic inflation. that's where the economy starts to overheat. so that's what the fed's been trying to fight by raising interest rates will see if the jobs report is going to impact their plans any going forward. >> 8.19, is the time the congressional black caucus and the president agreed on a path forward to address police reform in the wake of the death of tyre nichols. the
8:20 am
president is hoping that that dark moment in our history will spur action. washington correspondent basil john takes a closer look from washington. >> good morning. the lawmakers and the president agreed they want to see change and they are exploring every option possible. we have. >> agreement on how we will continue to work forward. thursday. congressional black caucus chair steven horsford in other lawmakers met with president joe biden to decide how to proceed with legislative and executive options for police reform. but the focus will always be on public safety. public safety for all communities. president biden told the group he wants to see progress in honor of tyre. nichols police reform cuts, grants and violence in our communities. the group did not disclose details but said information would be seen in the coming days. >> we're looking for solutions. provided foundation. lasting change.
8:21 am
>> democrats say it will take a true bipartisan effort. but the white house points out that can be difficult. it will require republicans in congress to stop getting in the way of ensuring our justice system lives up to its name. republicans like missouri senator josh hawley say they want to get more support for police. i'd like to see 100,000 more cops on the street. i'd like to see pay raises for cops and missouri all across the country. that's the kind of policy. but i'd like to focus on the white house says congress needs to consider banning choke holds restricting no-knock warrants and requiring the use of body cams reporting in washington. i'm basil, john. >> thank you, basil. a 20 that i'm stormtracker 4 and our live traffic camera showing what it's like outside right now. this is 8.80, in san lorenzo and you can see the road certainly wet from the radar shows that that's the case across a good bit of the bay, widespread showers this morning. >> we'll have your full forecast and complete team coverage. okay. what weather coming up?
