today, certainly shaping up to be a very, very pretty weekend. welcome to mornings on 2, i'm claudine wong. >> i'm mike mibach. get you over to rosemary, the sunrise beautiful behind you and we should be in store for another great day out there. >> you're right. yesterday several times my kids are like it feels like los angeles, it feels like los angeles. it was incredibly nice, warm, dry and we have another one coming our way giving you a live look outside our doors, the sun is on its way up. mostly sunny skies, we are tracking just subtle changes for your day and one of those changes happens to be a little bit more fog reported through the delta and into the north bay. take a look at stormtracker 2, again we have mostly sunny skies, again that shade of gray you see in here, that's fog developing over the san joaquin valley and if we check in the visibility on our -- in our area, santa rosa reporting good visibility this morning, thicker early on, 5 miles for napa, the visibility ahead
7:02 am

7:03 am
and others set up picnics. and people who chose to spend the day on the water got a big surprise when two gray whales, wait for it, this they are, they surfaced in the san francisco bay. coming up at 7:45 we will tell you where they were spotted and what you should watch out for if you're planning on heading into the city today. right at this time yesterday a large fire broke out at an industrial complex down in san jose wiping out a couple of businesses there. fire department photographer captured some of these intense flames with his camera. ktvu fox 2's allie rasmus joins us now from the complex to explain why there's delay in searching for the cause. >> reporter: even after that fire was out, this metal framed building was too hot for investigators to go into so they couldn't start their work yesterday figuring out the cause and source of the fire. we are told they are supposed to do that work today. this is what's left of that metal framed warehouse and commercial in bare yesa -- bariessa and san jose, on one car they had a car collection,
7:04 am
the other car upholstery shop. this is what the building looked like within minutes of this fire starting. it turned into a fire alarm fire. firefighters believe the fire may have started in that auto upholstery shop but again they have yet to figure out -- that out because investigators couldn't access the building yesterday. but the owner of the building says a collection of 30 classic cars that had been stored in here was destroyed. firefighters say the fire was tough to put out and people who live nearby and worked nearby were told to stay in their homes because of all the smoke. >> anything you deal with, synthetics material, polyesters, plastics, combustible of that sort, it's going to release a lot of chemicals when it starts burning. >> reporter: along with the two businesses destroyed, there were two families displaced by this fire. a couple who lived in an rv on the property and a family of four who was renting a studio space that had been carved out of this warehouse. they are both -- both families are now without a home. the red cross has been working with them to find them a new place to stay.
7:05 am
but the good news, mike, is that no one was hurt in this fire. >> thank you for that report. a new report shows san francisco fire inspectors found repeated safety violations at that big mission district apartment building that burned last month. the "san francisco chronicle" says fire escapes were blocked, fire extinguishers were missing and smoke alarms did not work. despite that, the paper also reports the building did pass its most recent fire inspection last august. it adds many of the people living in the building at 22nd and mission did not know they were in danger until firefighters actually arrived in the hallways were filled with smoke and flames. police in san jose investigating the city's third homicide of the year. it happened 9:40 last night. when officers arrived they found a man with at least one gunshot wound. he was pronounced dead at the hospital. right now it's not clear what led up to the shooting or who is responsible. there are no suspects in custody. this morning police in denmark say the man responsible
7:06 am
for two deadly attacks yesterday in the capital city of copenhagen has been killed. authorities released a statement early this morning saying the suspect was approached at a train station, they say when he shot at them, officers returned fire killing him. investigators believe he is the gunman responsible for two earlier shootings, one at a cafe and the other near a synagogue. >> it was obvious that from the first incident that we decided to investigate a terror -- it as a terror attack, seeing an incident, another shooting shortly after, it makes perfect sense for us to try to investigate it down the same route. >> two people were killed in those shootings and five police officers wounded. one victim was a documentary filmmaker. they believe the gunman acted alone. they say surveillance at both scenes show the same shooter. the obama administration calls the terror attack deplorable. a statement from the national security council says the u.s. offers its condolences to denmark and has been in close

29 west coast ports partially shut down this weekend. a member of the california avocado commission says these shipping delays are hurting state businesses on a global scale. >> we are about a $500 million on average a year industry, farm gate value and our export is about 10% of that so we are looking at $50 million impact and the ripple effect that has on the communities in california is tremendous. >> the shutdown is affecting traffic in both directions including california's export of produce and imports of electronics from asia. president obama is going to spend one more full day in california before returning to washington. he flew from sfo to palm springs yesterday morning. on that one hour flight he phoned the german chancellor and ukraine president to discuss the ongoing ukrainian/ russian conflict. the president and first lady spent valentine's day apart but that did not stop michelle obama from sending her love to the commander of

7:10 am
under armour. fortunately the replacements did come on time and on one pair of shows shoes right -- those shoes right there, you can see he paid tribute to one of the north carolina shooting victims by writing his name on the shoe. the victim whose sister is a doctor at san francisco general hospital was a big seth curry fan -- steph curry fan. >> rookie and former u.k. l.a. star -- ucla star sac lavane won in the on contest. he won behind 18-year-old kobe bryant back in 1997. the best team in the nba, the golden state warriors under the spotlight in today's all star game. steph curry and klay thompson will start for the all stars while steve kerr will be the head coach. several big names won't be in the lineup including kobe bryant and lake griffin of the

7:18 am
the warm pattern continues for today anywhere from 10 to 15 degrees above the average. now, we are typically expected to be in the low 60s for this time of year and what i show -- when i show you the afternoon highs, widespread 70s, even mid to upper 70s in the forecast again for today. we will have a little bit of cooling as we get into your workweek. unfortunately i don't see any rain in the forecast for the week ahead, maybe even the following week. and we will be tracking that for you. so for today, ridge of high pressure remaining locked in, that storm trek so far north we can't even see the clouds at this point. we've got a dry pattern that will continue for your sunday and beyond. ridge of high pressure and the sinking air associated with it, bringing us temperatures well would the mid to upper 70s with mostly sunny skies, that patchy fog won't stick around for too long but if i give you a shot here at the futurecast model, you can see where it is, right into the central valley we are seeing it and that's why some of it has actually spilled through the delta and a little bit of patchy fog reported in areas like napa as well as
7:19 am
santa rosa. into the afternoon today, mostly sunny, the onshore breeze picking up a little bit and take a look at what's going to happen as we get into monday morning, the fog reforming here along the coastline. so again, a bit of a drop coming our way as far as the temperatures. we are still going to be well above average, though, and when it comes to the numbers, easy to take care of because today a lot like yesterday, low 40s in and around napa, santa rosa, you have 46 in novato, mid-40s to mid-50s in and around the bay. 53 for san francisco, 50 degrees for hayward, shifting along the peninsula, we have 42 at menlo park, 45 sunnyvale. we are usually warmer in the hills. the afternoon highs for today, widespread 70s, low to mid-70s for the north bay, low to mid- 70s for the east bay. 76 in oakland for today, into the south bay where we have 74, 79 santa cruz, another day of beautiful weather at the boardwalk, we have 71 san bruno, 72 in san francisco, the extended forecast here, dry, dry, dry, slightly cooler

7:21 am
get hiv from this. >> and once reprogrammed, the cells are then put back into the patient's body, scientists at the university of pennsylvania school of medicine say it is unclear if this treatment will work for other types of cancer. well, 7:20 right now and if you're headed out to the water, keep your eyes on the water around the bay. coming up at 7:45, the special sight you might see swimming between the golden gate bridge and alcatraz. first it feels more like spring than winter up in lake tahoe. despite that resorts are actually saying they are much better off this year compared to last season.

7:33 am
american cars, but they are gone. >> firefighters tell us the fire may have started inside an auto upholstery shop when investigators are finally able to get inside this building, they will check to see if the cause of the fire was storage or an electrical issue. warm temperatures helped create a haze over the area and some residents and businesses downwind received an alert to evacuate as a precaution. it's now -- there's now an online fundraiser, though, four people who lost their homes in a san francisco tenderloin district fire last thursday, san francisco's supervisor jane kim is working with project homeless connect and handup to raise money for the 23 people who lived in the building on hide street. she says every dollar raised will go to the families who are looking for new places to live. the handup site also gives fire survivors a place to tell their stories. palo alto police are asking the public to help them find a man who they say groped another man inside the macy's men's rest room at the sanford shopping center.

8:04 am
owns this building and he was taking some pictures of particularly one of the businesses in the back. that's where a classic car collection of about 10 cars had been stored and the property owner says they are taking pictures for insurance purposes. he estimates the value of those classic cars that went up in flames that are now destroyed as about $1 million. 24 hours ago, the building was completely engulfed in flames. the fire started just about 7:00 yesterday. the warehouse was home to that classic car collection that was a storage area, rented by a business owner here. also an auto upholstery shop was a separate business also housed in the same warehouse. both were destroyed. and within minutes of the fire starting, it turned into a five- alarm fire. firefighters believe the fire may have started in that auto upholstery shop. the owner of that car collection says that about 10 of his cars that had been stored here were destroyed. firefighters say the fire was tough to put out and people who live nearby and workny beer
8:05 am
were told to stay in their homes because of all the smoke which was visible from as far away as the highway. >> you could see smoke for miles away and i knew it was serious. it's a 30-year collection of vehicles. you know, classic american cars. but they are gone. >> reporter: now, along with the two businesses destroyed, there were also two families displaced by this fire. a couple who lived in an rv on the property and a family of four who was renting a temporary studio space inside this warehouse. the good news, though, is that no one was hurt. everyone got out safely and the red cross is working with those families to find them another place to stay. mike. >> do you have any price tag on the amount of loss when you consider all those cars were burned up there? >> reporter: well, i don't know the damage estimate for the entire building, so remember there were two businesses here, but i am just talking to the owner of the structure, he said that he estimates the value of those classic cars that were
8:06 am
burned up at least $1 million because some of those cars were very rare and very expensive. >> yeah, including a 1970 monte carlo as well. allie rasmus live in san jose, thank you for that. new report shows san francisco fire inspectors found repeated safety violations at that big mission district apartment building that burned last month. a "san francisco chronicle" says fire escapes were blocked, fire extinguishers were missing and smoke alarms did not work. the building did pass its most recent fire inspection last august. it adds many of the people living in the building at 22nd and mission didn't even know they were in danger until firefighters arrived and saw that the hallways were filled with smoke and flames. one man died and 20 people are still displaced. san jose police right now are investigating a deadly shooting. it is the city's third homicide of the year and it happened about 9:40 last night on north capital avenue near mckee road. when officers arrived on the scene, they did find a man with
8:07 am
at least one gunshot wound. he was pronounced dead at the hospital. right now it is not clear what led up to that shooting or who is responsible, there are no suspects in custody. and denmark does remain on high alert this morning, even though police believe they have killed the gunman who is responsible for two terror attacks yesterday. authorities were worried the gunmen would try to escape so they guarded transit stations and airports when two officers spotted a man fitting the suspects' description at the train station, the men opened fire. the officers then shot and killed him. investigators believe he is responsible for two deadly shootings yesterday, one at a cafe and the other near a synagogue. >> we decided to investigate a terror attack. seeing an incident, another shooting shortly after, it makes perfect sense for us to try and investigate it down the same route. >> two people were killed in those shootings and five police officers were wounded. one of the victims was a documentary filmmaker. a short time ago danish
8:08 am
authorities announced they believe the gunman acted alone. they say he was known to intelligence services prior to the shootings and they may have been inspired by the paris terror attacks. back here in the u.s., time is running out for people who have not signed up yet for health insurance during the open enrollment period under the affordable care act. today is the last day people can register for programs such as covered california. there are several seminars in the bay area today including an all day enrollment fair at lake chalet at lake merritt, runs from 1:00 this afternoon to midnight. people who start the application process by today can receive a deadline extension to february 20th. with the port dispute continuing, the white house now sending a point person to try to help find a resolution. labor secretary tom perez and going to travel to california to try to help broker the talks between the shipping companies and the dock workers. secretary perez is a former federal prosecutor and special counselor to the late massachusetts senator ted kennedy. the port of oakland is one of 29 west coast ports partially shut down this weekend, a member of the california

8:10 am
>> just watching the competition i think this is definitely the best field that's ever been in the three- point shootout and, you know, just a pretty cool moment for me. >> curry planned to wear two specially made sneakers last night, one for the three-point contest, the other for another shooting competition with his dad. both pairs were somehow stolen during transit. fortunately the replacements did arrive. on one pair of those shoes curry paid tribute to one of the north carolina shooting victims by writing his name on the shoes. the victim whose sister is a doctor at san francisco general, was a big steph curry fan. unbelievable, this one is only 19 years old but he's now one of the top dunkers in the league, his name, he's a rookie and a former ucla star. his name is zach levine and wound the crowd by winning the young dunk competition.

so for next weekend maybe a repeat of this weekend and i know what's on your mind. when is it going to rain? >> how far can you reasonably look out to say i'm pretty sure there's nothing? >> there's a little blip on the 26th. >> that's encouraging. >> that's something. we will take it. we will take it. >> i have a neighbor at home that would say, rosemary, what type of crazy are you trying to sell me? 26? really, that far out? but, yeah it looks really dry. >> if that's all we can get, we will take what we can get. >> you might as well go to the beach today. >> yeah, got to enjoy it. doctors have found a positive way to use the hiv virus, they are using it to cure cancer patients and so far they say it appears to be working. doctors say 125 patients with chronic leukemia or nonhodgkins lymphoma have received this experimental therapy, more than 2/3 of them have gone into a full or partial remission. the treatment requires researchers to use the part of the hiv virus that allows it to sneak into and infect t cells
8:22 am
or white blood cells. >> in this case we are using it to bring in genetic material not from an hiv virus, but bring in genetic material that will reprogram the patient's t cell to fight their cancer. it's not hiv. patients can't get hiv from this. >> and once reprogrammed, the cells are then put back into the patient's body, scientists at the university of pennsylvania school of medicine say it's unclear if this treatment will work for other cancers. well, one more day of golf at pebble beach and it's a gorgeous day for a golf tournament but coming up at 8:45, the surprises on the leaderboard and the big name who made it into that final round. but first as rosemary said it feels a little bit more like spring break especially up in lake tahoe. despite the less than ideal ski conditions we will talk about why resorts are much better off this year compared to last season.

this morning there's another storm bearing down on new england and the upper midwest. people who live in new england, michigan and indiana are expected to see more heavy snow. temperatures below 20 degrees and winds gusting at 75 miles an hour. that is already causing flight delays including some planes headed right here to the bay area. usually people do bundle up when they hit the slopes in february but not this weekend. reporter kevin oliver headed up to tahoe where the ski resorts are doing their best to deal with these record warm

8:27 am
town. the santos family from elk grove was happy to get in another long weekend of skiing, wondering if this warm weather will last. >> before this last storm we thought we were done and we bought a season pass and it's like, oh, really? haven't got much use out of it. >> reporter: some winter businesses are already feeling the heat with some lower elevation snow parks closed until it snows again. >> rosemary said 60s yesterday, 50s today. this weekend marking that halfway point of the winter season for the ski resorts in the tahoe area. by comparison, though, some resorts didn't actually open until this time last year because of the lack of snow. >> thanks, claudine. new rules regarding the use of commercial drones. up next, the reason most of them have been banned in the past and what it could mean for the future. waking up with sunshine this morning with abundant sunshine in the forecast for your sunday afternoon. i'll update conrad murray current -- i'll update your current conditions and line up the afternoon highs coming up.

8:33 am
told that that equipment is going to be used to start tearing down the building that caught on fire because it's no longer structurally sound. also at the site returning to the site this morning, some of the owners of the businesses destroyed. they have come back to take pictures of the damage for insurance purposes, there were two businesses renting space in this warehouse, one an auto upholstery shop, the other a car stereo shop that had classic cars stored in the building. the building's owner has been out on the property taking pictures and measurements. came along with him to the back of the warehouse where we can see what's left of the rare and expensive classic cars. the building owner estimates the value of the cars destroyed is at least $1 million. the owner of the upholstery shop was also on site this morning taking a look at the damage. he didn't want to comment. he and his wife own this business and he said they were pretty shaken up by the loss of their business. 24 hours ago the building was completely engulfed in flames. firefighters believe the fire may have started in that auto upholstery shop, although the work that's going to be done today investigators will be going into the building to try
8:34 am
and pinpoint the source and the cause of this fire and the location where it started. the fire was tough to put out and people who live nearby and work nearby were told to stay in their homes because all the smoke in the air some of which you could see from the freeway. a couple who lived in an rv on the property and a family of four who was renting a studio space carved out of this warehouse are now without a home because of the fire. the good news, though, they are not hurt. now, back out here this morning, the fire officials out here told us that investigators are going to be going back into the building to start their work but firefighters and public information officers aren't going to be making any comment about the investigations. they said all they can tell us at this point it appears to be accidental, no suspicious in nature, claudine, back to you. >> i know we could see the smoke from that fire for miles away. the rest of that neighborhood, is it a fairly industrial area that's being affected at least immediately by the firefighters and things -- and investigators back there now? >> reporter: yeah, it's very, very industrial. i mean, just looking around,
8:35 am
you can't see any houses or anything, any buildings. it's a lot of businesses and warehouses, some construction equipment, that sort of industrial area, there's no residences or apartments as far as the eye can see from where we are standing. >> thank you, allie. we appreciate the update. now an online fundraiser for people who lost their homes in the san francisco tenderloin district fire last thursday. san francisco supervisor jane kim is working with project homeless connect and handup to raise money for the 23 people who live in the building on hide street. she says every dollar raised is going to go to the families who are now looking for new places to live. the handup site also gives fire survivors a place to tell their stories. new concerns about the safety of americans in iraq after islamic militants tried to attack a military base there. two dozen isis fighters posing as friendly iraqi soldiers attempted to infiltrate the iraqi air base. they came in two waves, first
8:36 am
suicide bombers and then the gunmen. iraqi suicide forces fought off the assault and killed the isis fighters while the more than 200 american troops at the base remain unhurt. >> they are willing to do with the -- what the americans and iraqi forces are not willing to do, willing to take horrendous casualty rates to make a point and they are bringing in foreign fighters who are coming in to die in jihad. >> the u.s. service members at the base are training iraqi troops and assisting baghdad in training sunni tribesmen to fight isis. tonight a conversation with former secretary of state george schultz. i sat down with him to discuss his recent passion to educate americans on climate change. we also discussed his take on isis, the 2016 presidential election, president obama and i take him back 30 years ago when he was secretary of state and questioned him about the massive drop in the price of oil. >> similar to today in 1985/'86
8:37 am
oil prices plunged, one theory the oil collapse was engineered by the u.s. government to bring down the soviet union, back then a top oil producer in the world. so did you or anyone in the reagan administration ever ask the saudis to open up their pumps more so as to drive the price down and therefore hurt the soviet union economically? >> we had a nice quiet understanding. i'll leave it at that. >> can't expand a little more? >> no. >> the republican schultz also opens up about his family including the importance his mother played in his life. tonight on the 10:00 news, my conversation with george schultz. >> looking forward to that. the federal aviation administration will be announcing some new rules today regarding the use of commercial drones. right now all commercial remote control aircraft are banned except for some rare exceptions. drones have been a problem in the past few years because of several close calls with commercial passenger airplanes. it's still unclear how complicated those new requirements are going to be. schools across the country are taking a major stand
8:38 am
against e-cigarettes, most schools -- their antitobacco policy so they publish students with either detention, a letter home, sometimes they require tobacco education class but now some schools are grouping those devices because they can be used for illegal substances like marijuana. some students in north carolina, new jersey, washington and connecticut are now facing long suspensions, required drug tests and permanent marks on their school records. well, a number of famous restaurants are using a new software to help reduce the number of cancellations and keep costs down. the lazy bear in san francisco is one of those restaurants. it requires guests to book their reservation online and pay for their meal up front through a program called talk. no walk-ins allowed and no refunds. chefs from the french laundry and yonville and helena are savoring the savings.
8:39 am
>> between no shows and food costs we have saved over $500,000 a year. >> more than 600 restaurants plan on launching the program this year keeping their costs down, customers say they hope those restaurants are going to pass the savings along to them. it's a san francisco classic, hundreds of pillows were destroyed during yesterday's massive pillow fight in san francisco. the annual event took place at about 6:00 last night at justin herman plaza, about 1000 people showed up all to make those feathers fly. some people came as couples, others as families and some people even just came to watch. everywhere you look there were epic battles underway, the children against the parents, the husbands against wives, many people say their free-for- all is a great way to release anxiety or stress that may come along with valentine's day. others say, hey, it's just great fun no matter how you look at it. some people had never been to the event. others could be considered, i guess you could say, pillow
8:40 am
fighting professionals. >> this is my sixth year. it's nice to see everybody come together for such a silly concept, but makes you feel like a kid again. >> six years, yeah, you're a veteran right there, at least two people we know of were hurt, police say one man slipped on some feathers and hit his head. a woman also got punched in the face forcing police to shut down the event 15 minutes earlier. only cost the city about $5000 to clean up all those feathers. if you missed out on last night's pillow fight, you can always head over to the feathers of fury pillow fight in san jose. the event kicks off at noon today at paseo de san antonio between camera 12 and johnny rockets, all you have to bring is pillow and garbage bags to help clean up afterwards. about 60 couples are husband and wife thanks to the alameda county courthouse which opened its doors for valentine's day. that office does not usually open on the weekends but yesterday it was valentine's day so it made an exception. some couples dressed in their best, others just came in their
8:41 am
street clothes. they all, though, accomplished what they came to do and that was to declare their love and say i do. >> i think it's very romantic -- it's a very romantic day and special to be with the family and your loved ones and we thought it would be a romantic day to get married on. >> court officials say the offices were also open to provide birth and death certificates but no one came in for those services. a couple surprises spotted near alcatraz. up next what you should watch out for if you're heading out on san francisco bay. you feel like a little running? are you interested in training for a long race or improving your overall running ability. we are going to be talking to an olympic level running coach to give you tips on what you need to do for training.

welcome back, we appreciate your time on this sunday morning, giving you a live look at the bay point area pointing west towards martinez, currently 54 degrees outside your door. with all that nice weather, you might be trying to get to those new year's resolutions, so lots of people decided they were going to get in shape so maybe you want to go outside and head for a run but maybe your goal is bigger than a few laps around the block and you're eyeing the first long distance race and trying to figure out just exactly how to
8:45 am
do it. joining me now is olympic level running coach and senior editor mario fry ollie, thank you for joining us this morning. >> thank you for having me. >> lots of people either hate running or like it at short distance. what do you tell people about maybe the benefits and why they should even sign up for a marathon, a half marathon or even start with a 5k, right? >> good to have a goal and especially for the people just starting out it's good to get out of your comfort zone and challenge yourself to do something that you didn't think you previously could, even if it's just a 5k but even all the way up to the half marathon which is america's most popular racing distance right now. >> i've done that once, it was really hard mentally. physically obviously it's hard on your body but especially if you haven't prepared but do you think it's more of a mental thing? there's a lot of people who run marathons that you might be surprised about because they just kind of stick to this long training program and get there? >> yeah, it's totally a mental thing and that long training program can intimidate a lot of people but if you go to any race and you look at just the spectrum of people who are crossing the finish line, it's all shapes and sizes, all ages
8:46 am
and ability levels and you're really capablele way more than you ever -- capable of way more than you thought you could be. >> i noticed you ran the boston marathon. i'm always amazed by the people and really all different shapes and sizes. and boston marathon obviously is a very competitive one and so people have accomplished a lot to be in that. what do you think that drives people? we are looking at video of people running across the golden gate bridge, it could be so many things that inspires someone to start running and keep on running? >> yeah, everyone has got their own motivations like running over the golden gate bridge a destination for some people, qualifying for the boston marathon is this lifelong attainable goal, call it the peoples olympics, for a lot of people that could be the pinnacle of their running career. everyone has got their own reason which is one of the most beautiful things about the sport. >> give really the hard helpful tips on kind of how to do it. do you need a coach? how much time should you give yourself? let's say you can run a mile right now comfortably. how much time do you give yourself to say i'm going to
8:47 am
achieve this goal? >> if you can run a mile comfortably right now and building up to something like a half marathon, safest approach give a mile to each run. three months to safely prepare for a half mile. a 5k, only at a mile, two more miles. important to take a gradual, intelligent approach to building your training volume. >> rosemary asked me earlier today, she goes anyone you look at and say it's a great idea, you know, let's not go for the half marathon, let's not go for the marathon, let's keep your run short, who shouldn't be doing this? >> there isn't anyone who shouldn't be doing this. i think you need to start with smart goals and start small. 5k, move up to 10k as you go along you're going to enjoy the process of running more and you'll start thinking what can i do next? that's how people get hooked and go onto half marathons and marathons and even longer races than that these days. >> rosemary, no more excuses, as you say? >> leave your excuses at the door. >> i don't think i've ever run
8:48 am
more than 3 miles. just really painful for me. i just think some people naturally are runners and some people aren't. so i don't know if i could ever run a half marathon. >> i bet you could. >> you have to -- i guess it's finding that deep down of wanting to do it, right? >> got to get past the mental block of not thinking you can and start gradually taking the steps to get there. >> start telling myself i can instead of i can't. >> see, there you go. afterwards you have to jump on rosemary and get her running around the studio. a lot of good tips and i think it's probably planning it out and giving yourself accomplishable goals in the process. >> exactly. thanks for having me. >> thank you. >> mike when is your last -- mike is actually a runner. >> i don't know if you would say a runner. definitely not going to run a marathon. i did a 400-meter dash in high school. i'll stick to my one lap approach. it worked well and going to stick with it. one lap. >> we all need some one on one apparently here, mario.

>> thank you both for that. appreciate you. couple gray whales spots in san francisco bay on their annual migration to alaska. petty officer matthew cavaco was in the middle of a training session near alcatraz when two whales surfaced, 15 to 20 feet long, the second one was more submerged. he says he believes it may have been smaller and possibly a calf. >> they were headed up into the bay but we were able to see them for a few minutes and they looked completely comfortable and healthy and happy. >> the coast guard immediately transmitted a mariners alert to warn boaters of the whales' presence. it's against the law to get within 100 yards of those animals. federal law protects them from harm or harassment but the danger of human interference still exists. >> right now we've got a lot of females who have either are about to give birth or have just given birth who are essentially running on an empty tank of gas.
8:50 am
>> every spring the gulf of the fair lawns national marine sanctuary puts out a warning for boaters about avoiding whales during their migration given that it already feels like spring, they may be issuing that alert a little bit early. so in the past we have had whales hanging out in the bay. we have usually given them some names and those names included delta and dawn as well as humphrey so you tell us if these whales stick around, what would you call them? some suggestions already coming in including kirk and spock and one person says one whale can be called francisco, the other should be named after the person that spotted them. today is the final round of the at&t pebble beach pro-am golf tournament and there are surprises out there on the leaderboard. jim furyk has one shot lead to start the day after a remarkable run on the last 10 holes he placed yesterday and he has not won a tournament in more than four years. and two san francisco giant players, matt cain and buster

posey are tied in 13th among the amateur players and they are in today's final round. congrats to them for even making that final round. good golfers, good baseball players. >> unfair they get to golf. certainly a nice day to walk the greens today if you can make it down to monterey. rosemary, looking good down there too? >> yes. but we are talking near 80 degrees if you're going to monterey. >> wow. i have covered that tournament in the past and it's been dumping rain where you kind of slosh through it. >> we would gladly trade this sunny, 80-degree weather in for rain, but, yeah, not going to happen. every time i go camping, it rains so i got a facebook message from jenelle, she says when you go camping it rains, it's time to book that trip, rosemary. >> exactly, exactly. >> good point. >> might be worth a shot. i can't control the weather. take a look at what's happening outside our doors this morning, an enjoyable day yesterday, another one in store for today. today a near repeat. the only change i could really
8:52 am
find this morning, a little bit of patchy fog developing through the delta and in the north bay but looks like it's already out of here so as you saw from the shot over san francisco, we are starting out with mostly sunny skies, mild to warm once again and unfortunately the extended models don't want to bring us any rain, it looks like through the end of the month. seeing just a little blip right in here and it looks very unimpressive and we are so far out it's even hard to of course hang our hat on that. so another dry stretch possible as we get into the second half of february. now, with that said we have updated the numbers here for rainfall for the season, san jose nick% of normal and we've got -- 96% of normal and san jose 126% of the norm. december did us well and then the wet system come through recently, couple storms brought us much needed rain. unfortunately the sierra snowpack suffering more than we are because they were warm storms and we didn't see a huge dumping of snow.
