>> reporter: the u.s. plans to ban travel from south africa and seven under countries starting monday and on sunday president biden was asked if the bands on europe or any other countries may follow. >> we are having a meeting today. took the world health organization which gave it its name cautions against travel restrictions until the variant is better understood. >> it will give us a period of time to enhance our preparedness. >> reporter: omicron brings many unknowns including whether or not it causes more severe disease and its potential impact on how well vaccines will work. >> people live look closely at the sequence, those individuals feel reasonably confident that three doses will be protective. that could give a really strong impetus to try to get more people boosted. >> reporter: another question is whether omicron is more contagious than the non--- now predominant delta. >> we think it is more contagious when you look at how rapidly it is spread in south
africa and it has the earmarks of being particular likely to spread from one person to another. >> reporter: they are setting up a system for it and it says if the new variant emerges in the u.s. it expects to identify it quickly. the president is expected to address the country about the new variant tomorrow and he will have coverage what he says both on air and online and website. a lot of travelers are coming back from their thanksgiving trips. we spoke with some of them. truck travelers arrived at the airport expecting it to be especially busy because it is a holiday weekend but tell us as soon as they arrived they were surprised to see there want as many people as they expected. truck we checked in with airport staff and they said so far the number of people coming through the airport is in line with what they have been seeing on other sundays in november. >> while we didn't see many long lines at the check in
counter or a lot of people waiting at baggage claim there were plenty of people in line to get through tsa with the estimated wait time listed to be short. >> i have had no problems today honestly and expected stress and headaches and crowds everywhere. truck travelers said the new variant is on their minds as they are traveling and they will wait to see if they make any changes to their plans in the weeks ahead. >> at 6:00 da lin shows us how much travelers are paying at the pump also. we have seen some hazy skies over the past few days and darren peck will tell us why and when it will stop. it is all this nice weather and it traps everything we put into the air and it is been about a week and a half and it is building up so we are now monitoring it for air-quality and you can see it when you take a look at the camera on
the top of sales force tower looking south with the flatline and high pressure pushing down and there is your inversion and everything else is trapped underneath it because we are not recycling air and it makes for great sunny and warm days but it also gives you stagnant air quality and i will show you another camera live in this is the one in the tri-valley and not the prettiest thing to look at. it looks worse than it is an air-quality readings are moderate and that is not as bad as it will get. so we don't technically have an air-quality advisory and and the air quality management district has not turned out signals that we need to do one but we are at moderate level so go easy on yourself but don't hold back and burning the fireplace if you can. taking a live look at oakland this evening, police department says it is upping its officer patrols in response to an increase in violent crime across the city. opd said tactical teams will also be in place to help. in tonight a reward is at $32,500 and growing for

we are keeping our eyes out for bright spots up there where we can see the lights out there. >> we had a lot last year and people sent a lot of pictures and. >> it was part of the way to experience the holiday indoors. >> i am looking forward to a return to that and we do have a beautiful night out there and that should be no surprise and we have been caught in a rut for the last week and a half and we are not changing that so sunny and temperatures near 70 for daytime highs and it is not going anywhere. it does look like there are some details to discuss beyond that like the chance for isolated patchy fog in the morning and currently we are still sitting at a good spot and it is mid 60s and 61 here in palo alto and those numbers will dip down and i will show you the lowe's in the second but they are only going down to the 40s and just enough that we will probably get some patchy fog in the north bay valleys
and maybe some locations close to the delta and we can watch the future cast bringing a few clouds overhead and it will just be high clouds that you probably don't even notice really and that is all we are getting any scenario like this in here the morning lows tomorrow so we go down the 44 for santa rosa and concord will go down to 45 and this is very much in line with what we have been doing and the daytime highs tomorrow on a technicality will be a few degrees warmer and slightly different but again not enough to notice but close to the mid- 70s and 74 for the daytime high tomorrow and we will do 73 and santa clara in those be some of the warmer numbers and we will see mainly upper 60s with occasional low 70s for the inland valleys of the east bay and back in the bay proper there are more mid-60s but plenty of low 70s as you get further away and once you get up north it is all 70s from santa rosa over toward napa and even out toward fairfield and temperatures in the low 70s for lake in mendocino county tomorrow and tomorrow there is an interesting pattern in the atmosphere and responsible for us having no rain for this long period of time and also
delivering storm after storm to the same one spot along the coast of western north america and that is that line from seattle northward and it is almost like history making in here comes the next one. we have done this now for the last two weeks and these are systems that are delivering not just rain but large amounts of rain being fueled by atmospheric rivers consistently and almost as though all of the rain has been pulled out of the subtropics and just sent one location and there just isn't any left to go anywhere else and down here in california that is certainly the way it plays out for the next seven days and if you take a look at the forecast with sunny skies in mid 70s for san jose and we will stay low 70s in oakland and upper 60s for san francisco and as we look across the microclimate same story mid-70s and the valleys of the in the upper 60s for the inland valleys of the east bay. straight ahead in sports, who is ready for some football? the 49er empire planet is even
vikings and when i look in the mirror i see him and picking it up in the third quarter tied at 14 samuel and for the backfield again six carries and scored twice and due to a groin injury didn't finish the game. in the meantime kurt cousins didn't see the first of two takeaways by the 49ers defense and that was the third interception of the season and the 49ers were in business inside the 5 and elijah mitchell crashed in for a touchdown and put san francisco ahead 28-4 teen with the broken middle finger and he ran 133 yards and 27 carries and the 4th quarter down and they needed to stop in 4th and goal and cousins under pressure over through his receiver and the niners took over on downs and then took seven minutes off the clock but robbie gould couldn't give them three more points and how about it, coach?
minnesota got into the 49ers territory but that was about it on the 4th down as the defense held in the 49ers survived and got it 34-26 and they are back in playoff discussion. it is the first winning record since week 3 and they are 6-5 now after a third straight win. >> it is why we believed it would be like a playoff game when two teams are playing inspired and we have everything on the line and that is why it is a good football game for people to watch and not always the most fun points wise for everybody but i was proud of our guys at the end of it. >> the warriors and clay thompson spent the day in santa cruz and practice with the club here as he gets closer for a return and his teammates took a flight down to la for sunday afternoon run with the clippers and inside staples center with the matinee affair and we will join them in a 3rd quarter and
defending and causing turnovers and steph curry has one of the six steals and puts them up 9 and he knows it is over and later a four point game and it was over on sunday and had four three-pointers to and the quarter in the final period up 9 but do they get these? steph curry wasn't happy about it so some magic words and he got teed up and you never see him lose it like that. he took out his frustrations here in the clippers to make it a 15 point game and he scored 233 in the final period and curry again didn't matter and he teed himself off after the sun is the warriors won it 105- 90 and the record 18-2 and next up back to back games against the sons who have gotten 16 straight games. >> every once in a while he is and stephanie doesn't do it often but when he knows it is right a competitor and him
comes out and he will kind of lose his mind a little bit but often it's person like it did in this instance. three of the big sports and action today and nhl and the sharks in chicago to drop the puck on a road trip and moving pictures coming up in the late show. and news before the game the sharks with kane and waivers and he is not playing which is likely considered the high value of his contract and he will join the minor-league club this week and had been serving a 21 game suspension for submitting a fake vexing card. >> marcus semien cashed in during free agency and the former a's shortstop or infield i should say agreed on the seven year deal with the texas rangers and get this, $175 billion and in 45 homeruns with toronto last season.
