and well, we continue that way again today. things begin to it's kind sitting along the coastline in the morning. we have those temperatures shoot up into the 70's. but all of a sudden it's an onshore breeze kicking. and then this started rolling into town and it continues to move on shore. some thick fog moving in along the coastline right through the golden gate bridge right now and more than on the way overnight tonight. but as we head toward tomorrow afternoon. i think that backs off again. and we crank up these temperatures dry as can be 68 degrees in san francisco today. well above the average 68 in oakland, 70 degrees in san jose 68 in livermore, 70 in concord and 72 degrees in santa rosa. right now. the big dome of high pressure just too strong for anything to break through. so you see these fronts come by the running to that ridge, the fall apart. leave behind some high clouds. and that's about it. no rainfall. i have seen the switch in the winds, though. we've had more of an onshore push into the evening hours. but now we're starting to see a little northerly component in the north bay. i think that the offshore wind likely the kick in least it's going to be weak of those will be strong
enough to warm up those temperatures still got a lot of 40's and 50's around the bay area at this hour in these numbers, they're going to be cold in spots overnight. you're dropping down low 40's in parts of the north bay. but by day you've got a lot of sunshine coming and dry weather. in fact, we're looking about 71 degrees in the napa valley. 70 in the bottle. 62 degrees. little cooler in the san francisco. you may be dealing with a couple of patches of fog along the coastline and then some 70's saw the way in the south bay about 73 in live more next few days had better news as far as rain is concerned. here we go. december begins on wednesday. december the beginning of that trifecta, december january and february. those are the 3 wettest months in the bay area. right now it's looking dry to start out those temperatures to cool down and good to see some clouds roll in come monday, but no promise ranges ship and looks like next weekend. the pattern may begin to shift and we'll get back. hopefully some rain. thanks. thanks for it. we're also staying on top on the kron. a covid-19 variant bay area infectious disease
experts call this new variant. >> a cause for concern but not a cause for panic. the world health organization is warning the on the kron variant represents a quote, high risk to the global community while bay area health experts we talked to today say their level of concern remains. >> in a holding pattern until some key questions are answered kron four's. dan kerman reports. >> we didn't want to hear this news right now. none of the state. it's it's really terribly. disappointing. >> infectious disease specialist speaking about the latest covid-19 threat. kron variant. they had to mean red flags that make me pretty sleek concerned that is a rate of increase. >> that happened really overnight inside africa from going to from, you know, a few 100 cases. so few 1000 cases. and that, of course, is driven by the predominance of this very and whether or not it was the cause of it was is being associated with it remains to be seen. the second red flag for me was just a vast amount
of mutations. and this new variant still infectious disease. experts say we still don't have enough data to answer a key series of questions. >> transmissible a t how will it responds unity and how they're doing is that house. it make us. these are the 3 big questions and frankly our feet are planted pretty much in the air on all 3 of the answers to those. but they are real. doctors say this is just another reason to get the jab with this new variant looming out there. >> you want to offer yourself the greatest protection you can get in the way to do that is to get fully vaccinated quickly as possible. and if you are fully vaccinated but haven't received your booster yet. get the booster. so you have really a good robust immune response. if this virus does take off here in the united states. and doctors also point out should it turn out on the kron can over take the vaccine. >> that does not necessarily mean it will cause severe disease and death. even
nobody's getting hits on t cells and other arms of the immune system will still be intact to get the enemy out of the body infectious disease. experts say like everything else with covid-19. this is developing in real time. >> so we'll have to wait about 10 to 14 days to get those critical questions about on the kron answered. in the meantime, take those extra steps to protect yourself. dan kerman kron 4 news. if you'd like to learn more about this new variant. you can scan that qr code there on your screen. it will take you to our special. >> coronavirus page on our website. kron 4 dot com there. you can also read about crime as well as find vaccine information how to get boosted around the bay area. still to come tonight on kron, 4 news at 9. we continue our coverage of this new variant will be speaking live with an emergency medical doctor from stanford. >> about how we can navigate the next couple of weeks as safely as possible, waiting for more concrete data. then

3 conservative majority to overturn roe v wade. we have an opportunity say millions and millions of lives in the future. if this is to be rolled up favorably, mississippi governor tate reeves shepherded the law in question through the state legislature. >> and fellow republican governors like south dakota's kristi noem support it. we actually got to go out and take actions that offend lives and save lives. the justices are not expected to rule until next summer. >> but if they overturn roe many states, including mississippi and south dakota already have measures in place that would automatically ban abortion in washington. i'm jessi tenure. next at 9 how the state of california is reacting to that new and potentially more across covid-19 variant and we'll speak with a doctor from stanford about the new variant to get some practical you know how we can all stay safe. and then was city's attempt to rehouse the homeless. >> has gotten him in hot water with seemingly every one those stories and much more when we co
>> we are continuing to cover the new omicron variant of covid-19 no cases have been detected in california. not yet, but state health officials say they're on alert. covers capitol bureau reporter ashley zavala explains the state's latest response. >> california health leaders say they closely monitoring the omicron variant, the new covid-19 variant first found in south africa is not yet on
the list of 10 variants. actively being tracked in california with no cases detected here yet or in the united states overall. but state health officials say it's only a matter of time. california has a public private sector partnership to analyze genomic sequencing called covid net that officials say will help detect on the kron variant early in the state. meanwhile at airports across california state officials say they're preparing to increase covid-19 testing from legal residents returning from some african countries. health leaders say they're also doubling down on covid-19 vaccine and booster shot efforts. well, a crime variant has yet to be found in any california cases. covid-19 numbers are slightly increasing following the holiday weekend with the now 3% positivity rate statewide. the state is averaging about 4,100 new covid cases per day. the latest data showing the other variant of concern, the delta variant accounts for 99% of cases sequenced state leaders have warned of a potential winter surge that coupled with the new variant of concern prompting governor
newsom's tweet while on vacation saying in part, we will continue to be guided by data and science right now. the best way we know to protect yourself is to get vaccinated and get your booster go today. don't wait. meanwhile, the california apartment public health says it's in communication with federal health officials to continue gathering information on the new variant in sacramento. ashley zavala kron 4 news a lot to take in. so what does it all mean for those of us here in the bay area if it isn't really as contagious as health experts think and should we be even. >> taking more precautions than before. we are joined live tonight by emergency medical physician and stanford clinical professor doctor. >> like everybody in. thank you, doctor. gerba, good for your time tonight. simply put. how concerned are you about this. >> it's definitely something that is concerning. we're definitely keeping our eye open and keeping our ears and eyes peeled for any more information that we can gather from. >> the cdc and the national institute infectious diseases.
>> a crime is known to be a highly infectious and transmissible. >> variant. and that is one thing that has led to it to become a variant of concern. but only time will tell how severe of a disease on the kron will create and how effective our vaccines are against it. i guess that was my next question. if it's more contagious is it also losing its lethality. is it is it sort of petering out in terms of >> you know, ultimate effect on people. >> we simply don't know the answer to how severe an illness with on the kron will be i think we'll probably know in the next few weeks as we see how various countries our sequencing and analyzing this. this new variant. matching that with the patients who are testing positive for what their symptoms are, whether they were vaccinated or not. and we'll know more at that
time. >> the sequencing and surveillance in south africa. i have learned is quite robust and that is in part why this has come to light and they have shared with the world and now the world. some of it has imposed these travel bans to south africa is there a danger of implementing those kinds of policies. if we want everyone to be as transparent as possible with their data. >> i think more than anything the scientists that are out there want everyone in the world to be safe and to be knowledgeable. i don't think that anyone would ever think to. to avoid delaying any information that is necessary for the public. good south africa has an amazing genomic sequencing. it was first identified. there. however, it's in many other countries and it's inevitable to be in this one as well. >> so doctor, as we kind of work our way through the greek alphabet and there are many more letters to work our way through. it begs the question,
will we ever be done with is is there an answer here. and and and if we're we're now saying, ok, you need you personally needed 2 shots. >> now. the who is saying, yeah, you really need that 3rd, that booster. do you foresee a time we're going to need maybe a 4th boost or. >> i think we're likely going to be seeing probably at least 2 vaccines per year. i think if enough of the population in the world remains unvaccinated covid is going to be around and we're going to have to learn how to live with covid. it's going to be a time when if you're vaccinated, you are going to be protected against severe illness and hospitalization unless you're immunocompromised or of the vulnerable populations like the elderly population. and if you're unvaccinated and you're at potential risk and has variance come some may be more lethal than others.
>> really. the ultimate question here is how to our vaccine. stand up to crown, which we will learn shortly. would you be shocked if our vaccines were ineffective and is it possible that the mri days, the pfizer moderna handle it differently than say the j and j. >> i think there's going to be a degree of protection against on the kron with the current vaccines that we have with both mrna and johnson and johnson to what degree is still to be determined. the good thing about the mrna vaccine technology is that if you identify new sequence, you can put it in that technology. you can develop a vaccine within just a few months and then get it distributed out to the pharmacies if needed. >> you know. but we've seen that with the flu vaccines. you know, one season you have to design a vaccine for that particular a variant. it does is kind of mimic the same trajectory that the flu vaccine. has a unit. in other
words, that were they're going to be adapting as we go along every year, every season, every year. was there a season for covid. now seems like it's 3.65 right. yes, it seems like every few months we have a new covid variant that that comes about. >> the flu vaccine is not an mrna vaccine, but because we can sequence of virus and put it quickly into an mrna technology. quite a few of the companies are now thinking that the flu vaccine should be transition to an mrna vaccine. so it has an increase in effectiveness to variants that are known to come about every year. so i won't be surprised if because of the mrna technology, the flu vaccine and the effectiveness of that vaccine actually increase along with keeping us protected against covid as well. fascinating. >> that is play a different doctor. really quickly. parents at home watching this. why should day not be panicking right now. why should they not be changing their kids play dates with other kids and really you
know, taking bold steps because of this new news. >> what's important is that if your child qualifies to get vaccinated, please get them vaccinated. that's the first layer protection against getting covid and if they do get covid against getting severe disease. and i think what is also known is that with our basic measures of protection like masking social distancing and being safe. we still can protect ourselves from a crime variant as well. >> great professor doctor la la. they're a bogey we have learned a lot. we hope to be able to speak with you again as we. as you find out more about this new variant. have a good evening. thanks. thank you. thanks for having me. and if you want to learn more about how this new variant to scan this qr code on your screen. it will take you to our special coronavirus page on our website, kron 4 dot com

we've had trouble thanksgiving. we distribute it may be 500 meals and we had to get back up on spring street to get into the camp. we had to go down a trail with a truck and distribute the meals where if we have access from the roadway. it's just so much easier. the barriers went up just before thanksgiving after the faa gave the city an ultimatum to clear the camp or risk losing millions of dollars in federal funding. in a statement, the airport said in part, quote, this closure creates a long dead end street that still allows for unhoused residents and service providers to access the area. >> helps decrease through traffic to increase safety and helps prevent illegal dumping and quote, the barriers are to remain in place until the june deadline for the entire 40 acre site to be clear. as part of that faa ultimatum. >> the city of modesto is working to help get people off the streets and into homes. city is partnering with a
nonprofit to launched the camp to home program. kristi gross spoke to one woman who says because of this program she got to spend thanksgiving in a home instead of a shelter. >> love it. it's very spacious. it's comfortable after escaping an abusive relationship and living in encampments in shelters. colleen mcbride is just happy to have her own room once again. now it's like everything is just perfect in my life. everything is just everything i could. all i can't even imagine. >> being where i'm at now. a year ago, bright credit to getting involved in modesto is downtown streets. team. >> and their camp to home program for turning her life around anybody can be and do what i've done if they want it bad enough and they've got the support system of the street team, just like the name suggests camp to home provides job training and housing to get people out of encampments in shelters like this one. into permanent housing and on the path to self-sufficiency. everything kind of matched up the dogs, hit it off.
>> we hit it off. it was just a perfect match 6 months ago. kathleen mooney has opened up her home and offered to rent out a room as part of the program after her husband died last year. this home. >> it's a really nice place to be. but it's not good for one person camp to home screens each participant matches them with an appropriate landlord than a couple of months looking for a person that would be a good fit for me. i think they succeeded with the help of cares act funding the city pays a portion of the rent to landlords like munoz with the goal that tenants would become full the responsible for payments over time. now i'm paying 75% of the rent. >> and they're paying the 25 and within another 6 months i should be paying the full amount isn't about the money. >> it's you know, this helping people to make these steps for mcbride and munoz will be can is an arrangement. has transformed into a friendship
spent thanksgiving at some friends of hers. i think it has become more of a friendship. >> that was kristi gross reporting for us tonight. camp to home says they're looking to partner now with more homeowners property managers and apartment complexes. >> right now we're 4 zone forecast as we give you a live look at the conditions out there in the golden gate bridge sock whole lot of fog on this monday night after thanksgiving. our chief meteorologist lawrence karnow back with us now. >> for a look ahead, lawrence. and we're looking for some rain. it's that time of year. yeah. like that rain. go on the head into the heart of the rain season. now december january and february. really. those are the rainiest months and we'd like to get back into it right now. almost like summer out there. we've had temperatures running well in the 70's. you can see that again. i think for tomorrow that fog looking reminiscent of a summer day thick out there right now. probably see that dissipate throughout the night tonight but still the rain would like to get things going. still this where we said, of course we have the majority that with those atmospheric river events and how about that? we've had over 8 inches of rainfall in san
francisco for the season so far. we're still sitting at 231 percent of normal san jose over 2 inches of rain still a 123% of normal oakland over 6 inches of rain. so still well above the average usually we've had a lot less rain for this time of year. you've had double that and santa rosa. so get the idea even though we had all that rain early on. things have dried out quite a bit. but now we're getting back to the average is here. so we'd like to get that rain going once again tonight, though, staying dry, we've had a bit of an onshore breeze. and that is bringing with it. some of that fog right through the golden gate bridge. but it's right down on the service. very thick fog out there now a little bit of a northerly component. the winds starting to develop in the north. and i think refer running again tomorrow. i think we see a little bit of a northerly wind developing again and we'll see those skies clearing out. lots of sunshine and above normal temperatures, high pressure just too strong right now sending any chance of rain all the way up in the can and the pacific northwest where they really don't need it. they have some flooding concerns. so we're waiting now and looks like the pattern probably going to start to switch gears but not this week. i think we
have to wait till next week before we really see the changes 49 degrees in dublin right now in cool. 49 in senate. 48 in petaluma overnight tonight. we'll see mostly clear skies cool temperatures and patchy fog along the coastline. and then tomorrow mostly sunny conditions and it will be a bit on the hazy side in the week ahead. looks like more sunshine and above normal temperatures dry weather pattern continuing into the weekend that we're keeping our fingers crossed for the middle of next week out there going to see the temperatures cool off and then by day tomorrow, a nice day. again. 72 degrees san jose 73 in concord. beautiful in oakland tomorrow about 68 degrees and 70 in the bottle next few days. dry weather continue. although the temperatures probably going to back off just a little bit. so not just not start, but the panic button just yet, right. we're going to wait a little bit for that. i think next week we'll see the pattern open up a little bit. hopefully that leads to a weather. and i yes, let's think positive. if we hadn't gotten those store, if we we
