>> all right. let's talk a bit about our forecast now taking a live look over at sfo where the runways are looking quite damp. haha, i'm kyla. what should people expect if they're hoping to travel this weekend? well, i mean, i think it's not going to be problems for as flights getting out because going all of our airports are quite used to dealing with some of the fog, the rain and we're going to get some clearing as we go throughout the afternoon today and then more rain coming in saturday night. so >> i think we'll be fine if you're traveling just meant to make sure you're picking your time, right? if you're going to be hitting the roads. so current temperatures right now, we're going to be little cooler today than we were yesterday, obviously with the cloud cover that's out there. so uc san francisco just at forty-seven degrees the rest of the day hanging out in that low to mid 50's range and today that's about where we'll be right in those mid 50's. some spots a little bit warmer. a few spots on the cooler. i think san jose could make that 60 degree mark. but that's about it. we should all be kind of in 50's slightly below average. so here is a look at the rain as a kind of rolled through the last couple of hours. and we're still
12:20 pm
seeing some of that pop up right now in the south and the east bay. but they are light showers. certainly see just that light green out there now and the clearing will continue forces get into the afternoon. but we do have a second low pressure system on the heels of this one and that one set to come in as we get into our saturday in the late afternoon. so while today will be clearing out saturday, unfortunately, just about the time when we've got that lunar new year parade getting started is what we're going to see. some of those showers to start track through from north to south. let me show you what i'm talking about here. we are clearing out today. if we take a look at futurecast, we're going to get into tomorrow morning. >> i think if you have any plans in the early hours, maybe you're checking out the oakland zoo this weekend. they're reopening. i think we'll be fine for that as we get into saturday afternoon, though, at about 5 o'clock, you see some of these scattered showers starting to pop up and then heavier showers are going to roll in kind of later in the evening. and so that's where we get into a little bit of trouble. some scattered showers still remaining on sunday morning before this whole thing kind of wraps up and heads out how much rain are we talking about? well, today, not much more about a 10th of an inch, but then as we get into
12:21 pm
saturday night and then sunday morning, pretty significant rain totals coming our way. so again, if you are heading out to that parade, just make sure you take the rain gear because i think there's a really good chance. we'll see those scattered showers after about that 5, 5, 30 time frame. here is an extended look at your forecast and notice overnight lows staying pretty nice this weekend. and as we get into next week, we'll get lots of sunshine. looks like a pretty good week ahead. and even a little bit warmer. back to you. >> all right. some helpful advice when it comes to bringing that rain gear to the for a thank you. my love. still ahead, activists of the capital demanding change and additional funding hoping to fight for better education standards for black students. and it's a push for awareness. has autism rates have spiked? what doctors are say ng about the latest numbers.

mayor's office for about a month. however, we have been under this federal oversight due to the writers case. and so because of that, we've been under this over. it was put what supposed to be 5 years has now become closer. 21 years of federal oversight. and so we i do believe that we have made huge hedge headway in regards to the reforms that we've created here in training and in department. you know, with that being said, we i very optimistic that we can get out of the federal oversight as soon as this year and next year. i'm i'm in consultation with not only the monitor, but the judge and the the representatives as well too. >> on a lighter note now, let's talk a bit about the announcement that you are part of yesterday. the african american sports and entertainment group now has an exclusive negotiating agreement with the city for its 50% ownership stake in the coliseum. the oakland coliseum. what does this
