12:07 pm
read of how the public assesses elected officials is that they want the public wants to see hustle and competence. we have more testing going on anywhere in the world. and we're going to continue to increase that. did we have it at the moment? exactly when we should have moved, and could we have moved a month earlier? we could have it was everything else is going on. i don't view that as somehow marketing competence, according to several recent polls, the president's approval rating hovers around 40% right now only former president trump had a lower approval rating at this point in his presidency. i don't think i've over promised at all , and i'm going to case stay on this track. he needs to be out there and a lot more visible. and i think he needs to bring a sharpness and a focus back to his team that they had during the first half of the first year, and i think i think that will go a long way toward assuaging the public's frustration with this never ending pandemic. professor crane
12:08 pm
says in the months ahead, that focus will likely turn to what the biden administration can get done before this year's midterm elections, when democrats are likely to lose their majority in the house, crane is optimistic that the senate could break out and pass parts of the president's social spending bill that failed earlier this year. the elements of that package that seems to have the edge at the moment is the pieces that pertain to climate change? because you know the clock is ticking, given that the whole country has been seeing the effects of climate change. there's pretty broad consensus that that might be near the top of the list. and professor crane says one thing that might end up helping the democrats as we get closer to november is if former president trump becomes more outspoken and visible in his support for republicans running for congress this year, crane says, hearing mr trump on the campaign trail this fall could remind voters about what they did not like about the former president. live in the newsroom. ali rasmus ktvu fox two news, ali. thank you. memorial is being created to honor a former

911 about a fire southeast of pittsburgh high school that was just before five o'clock this morning, and when firefighters arrived on scene, they saw flames coming from the garage. as well as part of the main house. they were told that someone possibly could be inside, but a search of the structure found no one was living in the house as it's currently being sold and is now in escrow. this house is what we typically referred to as a hoarder house, which means that there's a significant amount of materials, household belongings , clothes, et cetera inside the house, and this makes it very difficult for us to effect a rescue and put the fire out because there is so much volume of material inside the house. the battalion chief there. bob atlas says the cause of that fire is not yet known. let's step outside and enjoy some of this glorious sunshine took us a couple hours to get here. i'm sure if you and your backyard earlier today, mark would have been a lot of fog. yes, once again another big batch of fog this morning. some stubborn fog gaussian. it looks like it's still cut around portions of the base. so not 100% clear just
12:17 pm
yet, but we are heading in that direction. over the next couple of hours. so more sunshine expected later today. in fact warming temperatures as we head toward the weekend satellite just like yesterday. as we check out the fog pattern, you can see kind of filling the bay. the overall coverage has been decreasing, but it looks like still if you leftover patches right around the bay itself is becoming closer right now put a pause on the satellite and you can still see some clouds. right around the right around closer to sfo approaching hayward as well. so as i mentioned, not 100% clear visibility reports near zero across portions of the bay area earlier this morning, right now, things have been improving. that's a reflection of more sunshine that we that we are experiencing this afternoon has been a dry stretch almost two weeks. of course, we had a few sprinkles last weekend, but not enough to call a real storm. so last system nearly two weeks ago, and it looks like this dry weather stretch wants to stick around this week and possibly into next week and possibly for the rest of january, and fortunately, it looks like we're kind of locked in this dry

weather pattern. current numbers out there. oakland 50 degrees san jose, checking in 59. you can see some fifties and sixties at sfo site is missing, but i'm kind of checking on the site right now. 55 degrees in downtown san francisco and santa rosa in the upper fifties. here's our live camera above san francisco, looking out toward the bay bridge and get the idea. we still some lingering pays and some lingering fog nearby as well. but more sunshine's have hazy sunshine later on today, this area of high pressure wants to stick around so that'll keep the storm track amplified and weigh up to our north. we have the fog today. maybe if you patches tomorrow morning, but probably not nearly as widespread. it's been two days. in a row of a dense fog advisories. probably not the case for tomorrow. tomorrow will be windy and warmer and into the weekend, starting off with a bit of a breeze with lots of sunshine all weekend long, but the storm track is once again weigh up to our north northwest side of any breakthrough storms to impact the bay area. friday forecast of the wind will
12:19 pm
definitely accelerate and for the higher elevations, we could have gusts topping 50 miles an hour closer to the valleys. winds could be around 20 to 30 miles an hour so breezy in the lower levels as you go up at elevations. pretty windy, a borderline wind advisory for tomorrow afternoon. forecast ties for this afternoon upper fifties warm spots will be approaching the low to mid sixties. so you can see forecast is actually pretty nice today will continue to warm things up into your friday the warmest locations close to 70 degrees. it's breezy on saturday, but it looks like the sunny weather will continue into sunday and monday as you kind of reflect on those temperatures in the sixties and seventies as the niners head out to green bay. take a look at that kickoff temperature 12 degrees and probably after halftime, we could have temperatures down into the single digits, so it'll be nice to watch a football game here in the bay area. those mild temperatures, but keep in mind those very frigid temperatures, as you would expect in green bay this saturday. thank you. mark still to come at noon. tensions rising between russia and ukraine will have the latest on
