center in oakland. they thought they'd be getting today off as a paid holiday, but last month learned that wouldn't be happening after all cars are telling us that they can't give it to us for 2022, but they've given it to other unions who bargained it. by the way, it shouldn't be a bargaining issue. it's a civil rights issue, and then they're telling us you'll get it. january 2020 2023 in a statement, kaiser permanent said there was miscommunication within one department over martin luther king day being a paid holiday. citing operational factors that made it impossible to implement this year, adding quote. local leaders have apologized to employees who may have viewed the mistake as in any way conflicting with kaiser's deep commitment to equity, inclusion and diversity, but it's an insufficient response and frankly, it's infuriating because they had so many months. this is not something that was just out of the blue that we asked for. like i said, we've been asking for this since may of right after george floyd was murdered in 2020. foreign chicano therapist jessica dominguez, recognizing

mlk day for kaiser therapists was meant to be a first step in a list of anti racist practices she and other therapists have spelled out. now she questions kaiser's commitment for me. this is very much a tipping point. if my organization kaiser can't step up and do the right thing when our communities of color and crisis when are they going to step up to the right thing? i can't recruit my friends to be therapists in oakland, for example. when they learned that we don't have martin luther king's day is a paid day off to them. that means their needs aren't valid and aren't important. so it's it hurts our recruitment. 8% of kaiser therapists are black higher than the national average, but not high enough to meet the needs of black patients, says therapist sabrina show met. it also hurts retention. we lose black therapists and therapists of color often call it sometimes the supremes because i'm usually one of three kaiser permanent employees who are represented by
5:05 pm
other unions do have today off as a paid holiday and rather than the traditional day of service this year, kaiser hasn't expanded week of service opportunities to commemorate martin luther king junior's legacy. well emma, you can see a frustrated everyone is i guess the question is, is there anything retroactive? kaiser could do maybe to fix this year's holiday. and is this pledge to at least have next year as a paid holiday doing anything to calm the frustration ? well, the women i spoke with are still frustrated. they're happy that they get to recognize martin luther king jr as a holiday next year. but they say it's really about principle not as much about pay for the holiday and they really want to see kaiser permanent step up and bring more resources and support to the people of color in kaiser permanently. alright thanks for that report, and the gas reporting live from the newsroom. san mateo county says it is investigating how surplus ppe and other supplies got left outside. during the recent storms from sky fox, you can see the soggy looking boxes of equipment at the event center. the county manager says the

fifties. right now the sirens are offline. um and they are offline due to the fact that there was some significant security issues related to the technology. and so we had to take them off line about two years ago. the city's department of emergency management says this tsunami advisory would not have triggered an outdoor alert even if the system were up and working because of the low risk to the area. director mary ellen carroll says the department relied on first responders securing the beach and existing wireless technology to push alerts to the mobile devices of those who have opted in to alert sf and if necessary, even to those who have not. we would not have sounded the sirens for this alert, and we did use sf alert are texting alert to let people know what was going on. the outdoor alert system was supposed to be back online this year, but covid put the project on the back burner. now the city is working to secure funding to get the outdoor alert system up

5:19 pm
frigid conditions expected tonight, mills. the roads in downtown charlotte. look worlds better than they did just yesterday. it's made it a lot easier for people to get out and about and drive around. but we still really haven't seen a lot of cars on the road. it is mlk day, which means many people do have the day off. and the north carolina department of transportation is still encouraging people to stay off the roads. if they can not want to take you guys back to win. the storm really began. it was late saturday night into sunday morning, and that's when we began to see the snow and the sleet covered the roads. and one of the biggest concerns was freezing rain. that's when rain freezes immediately when it hits something, and the weight of that ice can cause trees and power lines to fall, but also makes the roads dangerous and slick charlotte expected impacts of the storm to be more widespread, but thankfully, the damage has been relatively minor . we have seen power outages across the state. but right now,
5:20 pm
duke energy is reporting only about 15,000 power outages. and that, for the most part excludes the charlotte metro area. keep in mind that a majority of the people here in downtown are not used to this kind of weather. the national weather service says that this is the most know that the state has seen in nearly three years. many stores and businesses closed yesterday and today because of unsafe driving conditions. some people in the health care field don't have the luxury of staying home. yesterday i work by myself just because, like i told my technicians don't get on the road or anything like it's not worth it like i can handle it. i had maybe, like eight people come in. so a super slow and usually we're super busy because we're doing probably like at my store around like 40 covid shots a day. and now on top of the prescriptions, of course and covid testing, but yesterday was definitely dead. more travelers were able to catch their flights this afternoon as the airport got back to normal. we do know that at least two people have died in car wrecks in south
5:21 pm
carolina related to the storm. now temperatures will drop below zero again tonight, which means that driving tomorrow could be a little tough and that wintry weather it might not be over. quite yet. many local forecasters say that we could see another system rolled through here by the beginning of the next weekend in charlotte mills. hayes ktvu fox two news, all right. thank you so much for that live report. all right. julianne was kind of watching the atlanta snow this morning because i get a kick out of when they get snow in the south. they're not squared away with a lot of snow removal equipment, and that's one of the problems are going to have is they do a job where they kind of have scrape it. you ever seen bad snowplowing or road clearing? you know what i'm talking about? a lot of just junk chunks of ice left on the road. whatever. and melts a little bit during the day. and when it freezes tonight, that stuff becomes lethal. so tomorrow morning, atlanta carolinas they're going to have all sorts of issues against mostly, but they just don't have the vast amount of
5:22 pm
snow plow equipment that we have . next thing involving automobiles is the golden gate bridge. north bong traffic. i just watching it. they got a little record something going on there so you can see that flashing light up by the first of the south tower. you can see a flash or light there. so that's what's going on there. if you're waiting for somebody, and then what's going on up here is just yet another ridiculously beautiful sunset we have had night after night after night after night of great sunsets. why is that? what's going on? but the main thing you notice in the winter when it's not raining, and there's sparse clouds like this. the sun angle is always constantly lower, so the sunset starts a lot earlier than you would expect. so i mean, i've been watching it since four oclock. it's not a sunset necessarily, but it's low on the horizon. it's just kind of hovers on the horizon for awhile. so you get these sunsets. it seemed to go on forever and ever, and then, on top of that, you add in this moisture coming from a low pressure center down here. and you get yourself some cool clouds and you get yourself some
5:23 pm
really ridiculously great sunsets. so that's what all the other thing about winter is. you have plenty of rain and the atmosphere is really clean, for the most part, typically, and so you have these these vistas, especially after a rain event or something like we had a few sprinkles this morning. the atmosphere gets really clear, so that's why a couple of reasons why there's other reasons that we're seeing great sunsets. you see some shower activity. this is just offshore. europe is stuff out on long poke. you kind of see this guy ramping up. it's just a low pressure centers sitting offshore, bringing us clouds keeping us mild overnight lows tonight. back into the upper thirties low forties this time of year coming into late january, february, i expect twenties and thirties and we're looking at thirties and forties , so that's good. if you're worried about your plants, we are dry for a while. i do this every night. just say you don't think i'm i'm messing with you that we're not going to see rain for a while. here is seven days of no rain seven days ago when there's wednesday there's thursday seven working with the
5:24 pm
rain's going everything's going up and over. that's a ridge of high pressure. it does appear late in the month last couple days of february, january into february. we have a pretty good shot at some significant rainfall. fingers crossed and again. why was that early range so important? oh, my gosh. you imagine if we didn't write, we were 10% or 20% of average right now. we're 121 131 140 150. of rainfall average around the bay area, the mountains are getting down to about 110% of water of snowpack, but still we're going to see snow and rain before that gets to the point where we're really concerned, so that's really a very fortunate thing we have. there's another shot of the most beautiful bridge in the world. i hope you had a really nice weekend. a lot of folks driving home now getting back from wherever they were. the work week is starting when i get back, we'll look at the five day forecast and set you up. there's no rain. i gave that away already. but we'll get into the subtleties of it. i'll see you back here a little. okay. thanks, bill. only kind of five

francisco 49 ers following their narrow wildcard playoff win over the dallas cowboys on the road yesterday. ktvu is joe fonzi has those highlights plus the niners next test? joe? i was so stressed out watching that game yesterday. i think everybody was as long as you get the w that's what counts. if you're someone who gets nervous watching your team in a close playoff game yesterday, contest between the 49ers and cowboys was not for you. here's how much they were anticipating the game in dallas , all that we're doing here is opening the doors to 18 stadium. much of the game and looked like the 49ers had things comfortably under control. when devo samuel started right, then cut back 26 yards to the end zone. the 49ers had 23 to 7 lead with a little less than six minutes to play in the third quarter. cowboy fans already shedding tears about their teams plight. those tears premature. dallas field golden 49ers turnover if the cowboys
5:49 pm
short field deck, prescott took advantage with this five yard run to the end zone with two left to play, it was a one possession game. 23 17. both teams had two more offensive possessions. this was the cowboys last chance on the design quarterback run press. god goes 17 yards to the 49 or 24. but the cowboys were out of time out. the officials have to spot the ball. by the time that happens, the game clock gets 20 49ers have a heart stopping 23 to 17 win, making them the only visiting teams so far to win in this wild card weekend. so what does that earn them? a date with the team they lost to on a sunday night and week three. the green bay packers. the difference, though, is this game will not be in santa clara back in september that 49ers fell behind 17 nothing before jimmy garoppolo engineered this fourth quarter comeback values check refuses to be denied the end zone 49ers in front 38 27 with 37 seconds left. that's too much time for aaron rodgers. he got the packers into field goal
5:50 pm
range. he had devontae adams with a pair of passes. mason crosby was set up for a 51 yard game winning field goal. crosby put it right down the middle. the packers at a 32 28 when handing the 49 is their first loss of the season. 49ers packer head coaches are not exactly strangers. at both washington and atlanta. green based matt lafleur was the quarterbacks coach during kyle shanahan's tenure as offensive coordinator channel and today in a conference call. asked about that exchanged after the game in september, when it looked like he blew the floor off. no mats. my guy were matt and i are totally good. i was #### after that game, because how the game just ended. that was a tough one. took a while to get over. but we're good. then a #### of a job this year been real happy for him. but that stops this week and to go there in the playoffs with the caliber team that they have what the quarterback that they have. it is going to be a real special game is gonna be huge challenge, and it can be something that i myself and i know everyone involved with this member for
5:51 pm
our lives. guests equipment and here's something else to consider. as we approach saturday's game, fred warner, the 49ers leading tackler, re injured his ankle on this fourth quarter play without any contact warner did not finish the game. here's what he said today in a tweet. he apologized for the scarce says he'll be good to go for the game at lambeau field, which will be played on saturday . as we said there was no update today on the status of nick bosa, who remains under concussion protocol after he took a hit to the head from teammate dj jones, while the two were pressuring deck prescott. one thing we know for sure is there will be plenty of 49ers packer talk in the next five days before the game, and i think we can also depend on the fact that it's going to be very cold this time of year in lambeau field for a night game. yes joe yesterday when we talked to you and said you'll be surprised which way it went. because if the niners are doing everything right, you know they're fantastic. after watching yesterday's game, you know, how are we feeling about yeah. i still stand by that.
5:52 pm
they did three quarters of doing everything right? and they've proven this year that when they do that, they're as good as anybody in the nfl. but then you get those couple of mistakes. the turnover they had a fake punt. that went for first down, kept to drive alive. they've got a field goal after that, and then jimmy rapallo threw an interception on bad judgment for a ball. all of a sudden, you've got a game that goes right down to the wire, and that's kind of the way it's been for the 49ers all year. playoff football, keeping us on our toes. well, it'll be fun to watch, right. thanks, joe. you bet. already live camera appaloosa out there. beautiful night again. this is, uh sutro tower shot looking out towards, uh, san francisco and just beautiful, beautiful. beautiful night, billy. if you've got another live one, i think you do have one i don't have here looking west. if you can grab that. that'd be great, too, because we were talking about sunsets. and you know this time of year, the sun angle runs on the horizon. narratives like that. the sun the sun runs on
5:53 pm
the horizon for quite some time. and when it does you get these amazing sunsets and that's kind of what we're seeing right now. i think as you look at the next couple of days, we're going to continue to see this pattern of just insane colors and vibrancy . just great. okay so what are these? these are the highest from today. got warm? i mean, 65. morgan hill. it was 64 in san jose 64 in livermore highs tomorrow are going to be about the same height as the next year will be about the same height. next. they are going to be about the same. gonna be about the same each day. we don't have any big changes coming our way we do have that little system offshore that low that's actually making the sunset kind of great too, because you've got this little cut off low this lingering down here. and it just throws clouds up into our area and gives you these really great sunsets again. why in the summer months, right, the sun angles higher, right, so it's way i can affect you can see that something goes up like about here. and right now, the sun angle hangs really low on the horizon for from,
5:54 pm
like, noon on kinda, and so you get these really great, you know, kind of sun shooting through a big, thick layer of the troposphere or the atmosphere shall. yeah, that's what's going on. so again. another live camera shot. beautiful night. maybe some patchy fog tonight. not expecting a lot. but maybe a little bit overnight lows have been mild. it has been the most pleasant pattern. i was going to say that i can remember. but it's been really pleasant pattern because usually when you get this kind of weather you get really cold overnight really cold overnight. there's some gusty northeast winds. but we're not saying that we're having ourselves a really nice run of it, and we're going to stay that way. this five day forecast these upper tier numbers that's going to be like morgan hill gilroy number like that 65 65 on thursday friday, but still really nice weather overnight lows are staying well above freezing and daytime highs are going to be even if the beaches are going to be in the low sixties, so around the bay low sixties to mid sixties. so really, just a wonderful pattern. i'm not sweating because we've gotten so much
