6:08 pm
arrive sooner than expected. you're in the bay area. you know what i feel is, people are pounding down doors wanting to get their children vaccinated and that could soon become a reality for the youngest americans. if granted, the shots could become available by the end of this month. parents are asking all the time. dr christina vaux with east bay pediatrics says she's treated many young patients with covid, especially during the recent omicron wave. luckily the little kids have been doing pretty well . you know, we've had a few little kids or even babies who've had fevers. cough none of them have been seriously sick. even so, medical experts say the virus has been hugely disruptive for families of young kids and parents are learned about having daycares and pre case and transitional kindergartens. shut down because there's a single case or a couple of cases and then they have to then you know, then they're out of work for 10 days. the hope is that the vaccine will prevent those kinds of outbreaks from occurring. here's why the vaccine for this age group could come months
6:09 pm
earlier than expected last year fighters clinical trials showed that just two doses of the vaccine didn't produce enough of an immune response in young children. so in december fighter announced it would start testing the need for a third dose. but if fighter gets emergency use authorization, it would allow younger kids to start getting their first two shots now while they wait for the data on the third dose, expected in march. allowing young kids to get the vaccine now and then determining whether they're going to need a third dose later because that's kind of what's happened with all the rest of us. we all got two doses. and now five months later, we can get the third one. it's kind of the same idea. so um, i think it would be great. ali rasmus ktvu, fox two news. no it's six. stanford university is starting to see a drop in covid cases on campus. the chronicle reports. the university saw 155 new covid cases last week among students. that's a 45% decline from the week before. infections are also

bowl 56 is still a week and a half away, but it is already breaking records. tickets for that big game between the rams and the bengals are the most expensive ever, seatgeek says. as of yesterday, tickets were selling for more than $10,000. on average tickets are averaging 9800 on stubhub and the cheapest seats are going for $7000. analysts say the fact that the rams get to play in their home stadium against a team looking for his first ever championship in one of the most popular cities in the country has led to the high demand. alright checking in that wind advisory. that's the area in blue. okay you don't see it around san jose here. you don't see it around fremont. it's mostly in the hills of the east bay, north bay peninsula. santa cruz mountains as well and then when you get up here, you see the wind warning. that's a big deal that's going to last through thursday morning , and that's for high elevations of mount st helena above a couple 1000 ft. pardon me where wind gusts could easily get up
6:48 pm
to 25 to 75 miles an hour. it's gonna be pretty gusty up there, so that's the plan as we go into this evening, the forecast does this. the main event is basically right about now through tomorrow morning and early afternoon, so that's tomorrow at noon. watch out quickly, it clears out right. so by noon tomorrow, there's things that distant memory and again i suspect most of us aren't going to notice much of anything. truthfully not much more than you notice today. 25 days without rain. going on 26. we're going to make it 30 before it's all done. and the reason for the wind is that loge has to go over the top of the high and then it drops down the great basin working its way out towards the east coast where they've been getting all sorts of rain as we've been talking about, but that pressure graded the difference between the low in the high when you get close like that. produces the red arrow, which is offshore winds in gusty conditions. so that's what we have tonight and as long as that high stays where it is, which it looks like it's going to for a while. we're going to continue with these going up and over
6:49 pm
with the low sitting on the back side and these wind events coming up every few days or so, you know, so we'll have to keep an eye on that. i mean, that doesn't mean to be exactly the same each time, but the winds blowing outside right now up over at the higher elevations up over 40 miles an hour. i suspect the outlaw will get up to 50 tonight. probably that's about where they were last night 45 miles an hour tonight they'll get up about the same or a little more surface winds. not that great yet. but again overnight tonight into tomorrow around lunch time, it should be pretty breezy, especially in the very early morning, hours and again. it's about the north bay in terms of worrying about trees coming down things like that, because we could see branches every other places and trees. but up there where the wind warning is in effect at higher elevation. you got something to think about. now. that's most of us. don't live there. i mean most not in most people in the north. they don't live that high up, so it's going to be one of these events that will have impacts, perhaps on pg any more than it will on terms of our own , you know, personal experience except for power outages. okay.
6:50 pm
the forecast overnight lows about where they have been frost back in the forecast. valley. fog not happening forecast highs tomorrow. stop me if you've heard this before, because you have seen this before. don't stop me because i'm just going to keep going, and we've got more of the same more dry weather which is a drag, as you know, we need the rain. we're not going to see it in this five day period. we will see rain eventually again someday, but not in this next five days. i'll see you back here tonight at 10 11 will upgrade. we're never going to stop you, bill. we're going to keep going and going. thank you. what a song from disney's newest film, incanto just topped the billboard hot 100 chart. that no, no, no, no. with the talk about through. last week, there were 35 million streams of the song. we don't talk about bruno that ended adele's 10 week run at the top of the charts with easy on me. we don't talk about bruno is the

the 49ers $27 million against the salary cap 1.4 if he's traded or released. and staring at the 49ers in the very near future is extensions for two very important parts of the team . nick bosa and deebo samuel. i mean, i knew this would happen eventually, but it's um you can never be totally prepared for moments like these just weird. you know, you put yourself through all these things. you put yourself out there as a player back all these great relationships and then you know things come to a halt, but that's just life. so before we end, guys. i just wanted to, uh quick. thank you to all of you guys. the media. uh since i got here, you guys have been awesome. it's been however, right, guys. i love you guys so classy guy for one definitely going to miss him. hey, there's another quarterback in the news today. and no tom brady is not the quarterback who cried wolf. someone let the cat out of the bag a little early this past weekend, but yes, he is really

sporting life. thanks for sporting life. thanks for joining us, this sandwich is an unmitigated disaster. i asked for turkey and roast beef on whole wheat. what did they give you? with swiss and lettuce on whole wheat. it's the right ingredients, but in the wrong order. the cheese is adjacent to the bread to create a moisture barrier against the lettuce. they might as well have dragged this thing through a car wash. i don't believe it. i know. it's basic culinary science. some guy is auctioning off a miniature time machine prop from the original film, and no one is bidding on it. a time machine from the movie the time machine? no. a time machine from sophie's choice. boy, sophie could have used a time machine in that movie. did you see it? it's rough. wolowitz: oh, that's cool. uh-huh. it's only $800?
7:00 pm
yeah. and that's my bid. you bid $800? it was a spur-of-the-moment thing. i figured it would go for thousands, and i just wanted to be a part of it. there's only 30 seconds left in the auction. do you have $800? not to blow on a miniature time machine. well, don't worry. the way these things work is people wait until the last second to bid, and then they swoop in and get it. it's called sniping. 15 seconds. come on, snipers. ten, nine, eight... where are your snipers? five... snipe. four... snipe. three... snipe! two... snipe! one... ah! congratulations! you are the proud owner of a miniature time machine! you lucky duck. i wonder why no one else bid. this is a classic piece of sci-fi movie memorabilia. yeah, i know! i still can't afford it. why don't we share it? we'll each put in 200 bucks, and we'll take turns having it in our house. a time-share time machine. i'm in. sheldon? need you ask? i still don't understand why no one else bid.
