thank you for joining us here on this monday, december 20th on james fletcher. and we're going to start this hour off like we've. >> often like to do with a check of the weather because as we count down the days to christmas we've got a lot of big rain on the way, john. here to help us walk through the timing of it all. hey, john. hey there, james. yeah, rain just around the corner. now we take a break from it this weekend. and we're keeping that going today, which means you have to take full advantage of this one at least if you want to do your errands without getting because starting tomorrow midday showers will finally be getting here. your view outside the golden gate bridge this morning. pretty clear. we do have some low cloud cover overhead and for inland areas. actually some dense fog but not so much near the coastline. our current temperatures range anywhere from the 40's to the low 50's in half moon bay. some of our colder spots are palo alto at 45 degrees. saint helene at 41 fairfield and vallejo each 43 degrees right now. now we are seeing lower visibility in concord, livermore highway for
6.80 5.80, over the altamonte pass. all these areas seeing some problems as far as visibility goes. so taking a little slower inland elsewhere. you're actually being greeted by views like this. the bay bridge pretty empty this morning. not a lot going on out there don't even need the metering lights. it's only going to take you 8 minutes from the maze to fremont street and only 13 from 80 to one. oh, one as you're crossing the san mateo bridge and are some of our brightest skies in the bay right now. richmond center fell. also pretty empty. it does look like the week before christmas. i think a lot of people either working from home or maybe taking the holiday a little early. james. all right, john, thank you very much. some breaking news from overnight on the medical front. we have moderna saying that its 3rd dose of the vaccine significantly increases protection against the omicron variant of covid-19. >> the drug maker says that their booster shot increases the antibodies to a level needed to fight that variant despite the positive news moderna says it is still continuing to develop a vaccine specifically designed
to fight omicron. they say that vaccine should be ready for clinical trials sometime next year. so be on the lookout for that. meanwhile, it more breaking news from overnight. israel has now banned travel to the united states and canada over concerns about the omicron variant israeli officials have agreed to the travel ban because of the spike in covid infections that they've seen in that country. so what this means is israelis are banned from traveling to the u.s. and anyone currently hear that is trying to get back to israel will have to go into quarantine when they return. the travel ban is set to take effect wednesday at midnight. so wednesday morning. and we are just 4 days away from christmas and holiday travel season. obviously in full swing out of places like sfo. doctors say that you should prepared to wait in line. make sure you bring your mask. the due course continue to to really pressure people to get their vaccine, get their booster shots. it's just one of a number of safety measures they'd like to have in place
to try to stave off a surge. this holiday kron four's will tran is live at sfo with more on what you expect. they're good morning. we'll have look at. >> i just did my jacket. lord hawaii, 5 o turned because i'm on vacation mode. i'm joking. i'm working here letting, you know, some information that you need to know because it is even busier james than it was for thanksgiving, not just yoli and my imagination. talk to a police officer. 50,000 people will be traveling through as cfo said day and millions of people across the country. and this is as close as we have seen to prepandemic levels as far as christmas travel. you can see look at this. usually right around this time james, it would be almost barron. but look at that. just a stream of cars and inside. it's even worse. it has been flows at this time. but this was video that we shot at around say 6 o'clock in the morning. a look at the long lines. here's why it's so important for you to take care of yourself because
on the kron. well, it's not just something that they're talking about now. it's a lurking. know they expect a strong surge during the winter months and that is not even take into account liked cramped places like airports and airplanes where you're in there and that is why they're telling people what you should already know already know for the past 18 to 19 months mask up. we've got a chance to talk to some travelers this morning heading to new york city. here's what they had to say about being scared or not. >> i mean, i'm not really that worried about it. i mean, i'm taking the precautions were both vaccinated you know, it's the golidays. you know, we've got got to keep live. and you can just stopped. so you just take the precautions to protect yourself. courteous protect others and then you just get through the lines. that's it. a lot of patients goes a long wait. >> here's what you need to know if you love masks, which i do. the good part is sfo. if
you're inside, there's no wiggle room. you have to wear your mask inside and the airlines are not going to fly. we've seen people kicked off of airplanes who refused to masks. so that is there whether you like it or not. but there are other places, obviously when you're walking around, they're encouraging people to mask up julius evans and i our booster shot or vaccinations. which is why i don't have my mask outside. but you better believe even close to anybody mask up because the numbers say that they expect an explosion in cases of covid-19 and this blew my mind james. but one in 4 americans still have not even received their first shot of the vaccine. got to mask up. make sure that you don't wrap your christmas presents, by the way, because they're going to ask you to take it off anyway for tsa. the only thing you should be wrapping is your face back to you. >> thank you very much. well, yeah. 25% of americans still unvaccinated. we've got to get that number up. thank you for
the update there at sfo are also already seeing a big spike in covid cases across the country. in fact, a lot of americans traveling right now and those numbers are only expected to grow. we got rid of the bay shahbazi with more on that part of the story. >> with less than a week until christmas america is bracing for a 1, 2, punch from omicron and delta. it is just, you know, raging through through the world. really the omicron variant now in 41 states and counting. according to the cdc predicted to be the new dominant strain in the u.s. within weeks in new york city cancellations from broadway shows to live audiences that saturday night live image is giving flashbacks to 2020 of sidewalks lined with people waiting for a test. i've been an hour and a half. >> and has been very long. everyone's just been waiting and waiting actually today. i just yesterday. i just so from the lot of fun, and all my
friends like this. so scary covid here that's what me to get that. as you it's a big mess here that big wave is spreading cases are rising in about half of us states. according to johns hopkins university doctor anthony fauci saying the worst of it hasn't even hit yet. if things look like they're looking now. >> in the next week or 2, going to be very stressed with people because again, we have so many people. >> in this country who are eligible to be vaccinated, who have not yet been vaccinated and that's going to be a real problem for stress on the hospital system data on omicron is still new and limited, but studies from the u k show. no evidence it any less severe than delta. we are going to see breakthrough infections truck. there's no doubt about that. >> the difference between a vaccinated and boosted person who has an infection in someone who has an infection news never been vaccinated. a major difference with regard
to the risk of severity, an increase in positive cases forcing the nfl and nba to cancel games. even prompting president biden to address the nation on tuesday on the country's fight to contain omicron and with 109 million americans expected to travel before the end of the year. doctor fauci says the safest thing you can do is get vaccinated and boosted. if you're vaccinated and you're boosted and you take care when you go into congregate settings like airports. >> to make sure you continually wear your mask. you should be ok. >> well, in terms of its impacts on the sporting world. covid is pushing not just the nfl and the nba to postpone games. it's now the nhl too. also taking action. so the league has suspended games involving cross border travel until after the christmas break. 12 games and all have been postponed now between teams here in the u.s. and teams in canada. the san jose sharks, for example, their next 2 games against canadian
teams have been postponed. the sharks will be playing now until after the holiday break on december 27th. meantime, the raiders. they're going to be playing today against the cleveland browns on the road. and this is a game that again was pushed back because of covid. the browns were facing some challenges on that front when their game was originally scheduled. so today will be a makeup game that will be this afternoon with kickoff set at 02:00pm several large school districts across the state, including west contra. costa county have delayed their vaccine mandate deadlines for students. they say they made that call after it was clear that they were unprepared to add thousands of students to their independent and virtual study programs which was the alternative if kids don't get vaccinated. so west contra, costa county school board members voted to push the deadline for january 3rd until february 18th giving people more time to get those shots. the state's vaccine mandate will follow the fda's full approval of the covid vaccine for each age group and that's expected to go into effect in
july of 2022. san francisco's largest landlord, very toss investments says it will forgive background on owed by people who are unable to pay because of the pandemic. there are talks which owns about 250 residential buildings in the city announced the new rent relief program to cover 10. it's back grant as long as they apply for state relief money by january 31st. if applicants are denied by the state. then bear toss would cover up to 18 months of back rent in place of what the state would have offered. we'll take a break here at 9.11. still ahead, a man wanted for exposing himself to young girl in the south. they were going to take a closer look at the sketch. >> of the man that police are looking for and a violent encounter caught on camera in san francisco. a woman wielding a knife threatened him and from his own home. and a cloudy one out there to a foggy one for some of our inland areas. so be mindful of those lower visibility spots. >> at least it is a dry day highs in the 50's later on dry
i was hit by a car and needed help. i called the barnes firm. that was the best call i could've made. i'm rich barnes. it's hard for people to know how much their accident case is worth. let our injury attorneys help you get the best result possible. >> nearing 9.15 on the clock. we want to get a check of the weather that's going to be a big story going forward this week as we're getting closer and closer to christmas and the weather is going to get wetter and wetter as we get there, john. yeah, absolutely. is. james tomorrow. the start of rainfall that will carry us through the into the weekend after christmas to that sunday and even into the monday
after. >> so travel is going to be a little less than ideal in the days to come. this morning, is your best opportunity to be getting out there really today in general is your best opportunity despite the fact that it is breezy. it is cloudy. it is cool. look at the flag over pier 15. and you can see just how windy it is right along the embarcadero right now. so skies are mostly cloudy this morning. but at least they are dry immediately to our west. there's your storm system that's just been sitting out there for a few days now. really stalled out just before reaching the bay area. but it is finally going make its way our direction come the middle of the day tomorrow. so today and tomorrow's morning commutes are your easiest tomorrow midday. we'll start to see that rain pushing in and once it does, it's going to start to come down. pretty good in some pockets across the bay having impact on your tuesday drive home from work. not so much your drive to work on tuesday morning. showers will remain with us through wednesday morning, making for slick morning commute wednesday and that by no means is the end of it really just the start as rainfall does
continue from wednesday into thursday. we take a step back from it just a bit on friday for christmas eve, you'll still have some showers, but our lightest in the forecast, then come saturday rain and snow picks back up in saturday night into sunday. we'll bring some of our lowest elevation snowfall. of course, saturday is christmas day so plan on being cozy and indoors for that one. sunday's going to be a rough one for your travels. if you can wait until monday as we'll have some improved conditions to start next week. now here's the good news about spacing. the rainfall out like we are even though we are looking at anywhere from one to 3 inches of rain over the course of a week here that's not all coming down at once. so it gives the time to soak into the ground nicely. flooding risk is going to be pretty minimal as we work our way back into such a wet period 50's for your daytime highs today unless you're for this to inland like an antioch or on up to fairfield and vacaville. we have a cold air inversion in the central valley that's making for some foggy conditions making for some cooler conditions out towards our inland valleys
tomorrow. winter begins and not because it's actually be getting, but also because the rain and snow starts up again. and it stays with us through the rest of the forecast. like i mentioned, friday going to bring some of our lightest of shower potential for christmas eve before it picks back up on christmas day as far as traffic goes, it hasn't picked up at all. it's been a very empty morning on the bay bridge that has greeted drivers with only an 8 minute commute from the maze to fremont street. a pretty easy 13 minutes across the san mateo bridge and are inviting looking skies there. the richmond center fell bridge. only 7 minutes and the golden gate bridge, an easy 20 minutes from 37 to the tolls. hi, easy. conditions on highway 4 right now only 14 minutes from antioch to concord. that's honestly not ideal, though, because we have so much dense fog out that direction though. you're going to slow yourself down instead of traffic doing it for you. just take a little bit easy towards those inland valleys. a lot clear visibility wise
along one o one. 28 minutes from san jose to menlo park james. all right, john, thank you. 9.17 the time. time to talk winners and losers on wall street with financial expert rob black joining us this morning to help. >> calm our nerves a little bit. rob, i'm looking at the markets right now. nasdaq off by like 2.50. the dow off by more than 600. explain. walk me through this. >> or this far away from all-time >> on the crowd is doing what i mean. crown does as far as viruses go its making big headlines. >> in about 2 months from now. is the headline start to die down. sadly, after many dots in the world. wall street will be back where it is at record highs because the fed to do a lot last keep great. pretty darned low for the foreseeable future, not as low as they were pretty darned. well, there's new lockdown fears due to covid on omicron. europe is locking down. joe mansion is the grinch who stole the democrats christmas this year and no build back better america deal done this year.
parts of it will get done next year. but it's not going to be a sweeping package is the thought i'm not a politician for the year. the s p 500 up 23%. cry about today. the nasdaq is up 17.7%. the dow is up 15.5% moderna over the weekend said that get their booster 37 fold better for you. all as far as creating antibodies and you will be omicron. so we know that in 2 months from now we're going to be in a decent position. but right now we're in a little freaked out positioned elon musk is freaking out. he's paying dollars in taxes this year calling senator elizabeth warren, senator karen, which is hilarious and get tiktok tiktok is getting into food delivery. so your daughter likes the feta pasta or your son likes the corn reds and now they will be starting to get it delivered to your home. that's a crazy vertical. i never saw coming tiktok and restaurants. it's happening like they're going to drivers and things like bring it to your like like.
>> uber and and kitchens tied towards over. ghost kitchens are kitchens that are really restaurants. the cooking for the restaurant. okay. and in this case it's for tiktok viral videos. and i think texans start. >> saying like, hey, james, you want to come up with a crazy pasta and you get a 100 million hits will pale. so and that something's going on. okay. all right. so that will be a thing going forward. >> also, we were out live at sfo talking about air travel. and i think it was like last friday. this is past friday was like the busiest travel day for the christmas holiday for sfo. our how are we comparing to like last year in the air before this feels like things are getting back. and again. >> only crowded hit. it had hit november ones did the day after thanksgiving, maybe not. but i'm going to tahoe today. then next tuesday taking a flight to new york. so yeah, we're getting backward or canceling canceling. trying to get together with people. christmas is only days away.
4.3 million people went through tsa on friday. double-digit from last are double growth from last year, but 16% lower. then covid prepandemic numbers in 2000, 19. so it's pretty close to 2018 was record years that were just to off a record year. and with the pandemic and everything. i think this is pretty robust and telling you that americans are starting to treat on the kron is more of it's a disease or it's it's a it's it's fluid states like i've been vaccinated at those pills out there on this good as i can be ok live my life. that's what the numbers tell me. 100, 10 million people trout plan to travel over 50 miles from their home. that's the record of all time is a 119 million so we're out there and working and could move in. >> and i'll tell you, one of the one of the signs for me that people are kind of like not freaking out too much about the omicron variant is the fact that i went twice this weekend to go see the new
spiderman film both times the entire theater was sold out sold out. people are people. it will at least for spiderman. they're willing to roll the dice with this covid variant. >> that's that's good stuff. there. i just wish he would have invited why someone say kids girlfriend and doesn't want me to go anymore. so i have no one to see spider-man movies last. >> but i guess it's it's pulling in big numbers, right. like it's if we read, if remember the story. right. that's like the 3rd highest grossing film of all time. first weekend. >> and what we're learning is as far as movies going, this speaks for me. and you. i think we want more swing and less we're not seeing the in the heights. we're not seeing the west side story remakes awful, awfnl movies awful you did reviews. now. i have no interest. but we do want to see the web slinger to the tune of 253 million. the number 3 opening of all time
in america. prepandemic and posting them whatever number 3 behind only the last avenger films sets, that's big for hollywood and it's got people thinking great things. i think hollywood needs a good independent film. yeah, other than a spider or a superhero film. really prove that we're back to movies. but this is a good story and internationally. it's a good story. 334 million said domestic domestic and international and pulled in over 500, 80 million. so it's it's on that march towards billion awesome. i'm excited by that. and again, we're getting back and again, it's in the face of omicron. and i want to downplay yeah. all right. well, i think we'll bs paying the price for this in about a month going to movie theaters and traveling christmas. with that said, the crime appears a lot less dangerous and therefore people are extrapolating long, probably say something been some money and it's good news the economy and stock market. interesting. all right. we'll see where the numbers go as we get into like middle of next month or so. how many days we have you this week before. you're off. will stay all
we're following. a man had a violent encounter with a stranger right outside of his own home. >> it was all caught on camera. we'll play some of that for you here. this was last friday night in the city's richmond district. richard greenberg came home to find a woman blocking his front door. he said she became aggressive and threatened him with a knife at one point and that's when he called 911, and then managed to get inside his home before things escalated. that woman was arrested by police and reimburse as he thinking now about filing a restraining order against her. we'll take a break at 9.27. coming up, president biden's build back better plan is in jeopardy. as democratic senator joe manchin says he just can't support it. >> we'll have reaction from our political analyst in just a minute. 9.30 is the time.
let's get a check of the forecast quickly with john. is he standing by looking at the rain on the way. >> as we head towards christmas john. yeah, we are seeing a lot of it too. it's pretty spread out starting tomorrow all the way through christmas and even into the day after it too. >> so time to get the rain jackets prepared at least although you don't have to worry about him today. we are staying dry for your monday, which is a nice note, especially if you need to get some shopping and errands done. i know a lot of us do your view outside of the golden gate bridge is clear enough. we are seeing clear skies. generally towards the coastline. some dense fog has formed again, inland which has been holding up traffic in some areas. current temperatures are mostly in the 40's with dublin. napa.
pittsburgh is sitting right at 44 degrees. san francisco at 47. now, as far as visibility goes. definitely below a mile long stretches like highway for portions of 6.80, the altamonte passes been really rough as far as visibility concord in livermore on this map showing visibility below a mile currently as far as traffic goes, aside from the fog. you're not encountering much anything out there. the bay bridge has been empty all morning long. hardly even needed the metering lights from the maze to fremont street. that's only 8 minutes really inviting look there at the san mateo bridge. bright skies and a 13 minute drive across the span. the richmond center fell bridge is also been very smooth. 7 minutes from the tolls to one o one and rounding us out with some more smooth bridge crossings at the golden gate bridge from 37 to the tolls. only 20 minutes back to you, james. all right. thank you, john. 9.31 is the time. another story we're following comes at a dc where there's a big blow now to president biden's build back better plan. >> they thought they might be able to find a path forward
after months of back and forth negotiations. but in the end, this weekend, west virginia senator joe manchin says he just can't support it. kron four's, dc correspondent jessi turnure explains. >> mansions blow to the president's agenda comes after months of negotiations taking many in his own party by surprise. >> i can not vote to continue with this piece of legislation. i just can't. and just like that president biden's social spending and climate plan appears to have died in the senate. this is a no. >> on this legislation i have tried everything i know to do west virginia senator joe manchin has long been the key holdout on the 2 trillion dollar bill and said on fox news sunday. it's still too expensive and too broad, not changing our approach, not targeting things we should be doing making sure that people basically that really needed are getting mansion said congress should instead focus on rising inflation and covid. there's a lot of good, but that bill is a mammoth piece of legislation mansions pronouncement seem to take the white house by surprise press
secretary jen psaki called his decision a quote sudden and inexplicable reversal in his position and a breach of his commitments to the president and congressional democrats earlier this week president biden had agreed to back off a christmas deadline to vote on the bill to continue negotiations with mansion, let them vote no in front of the whole world on cnn state of the union. a visibly angry. vermont senator bernie sanders accused mansion of caving to pressure from the energy industry and others let miss them and explain to the people of west virginia. why he doesn't have the guts to stand up to powerful special interests. the white house left open the possibility of further negotiations with mansion. senators come back to work january. 3rd. now. democrats could pivot here and try to pass some parts of the plan as stand-alone bills or they could turn their attention to another looming priority ahead of the 2022 midterms voting rights legislation in washington. i'm jessi tenure. all right. well, to talk more about the fate of the president's build back
better plan and a more headlines from capitol hill. we're joined by kron 4 political analyst. >> michael yaki and michael, good morning. thank you for joining us. yeah. this kind of came out of left field for a lot of lawmakers. >> you know, this is this is the kind of situation where you start joe manchin as the grinch who stole christmas and certainly for the democrats. that's exactly what they think of in terms of weather as hard as 2 sizes too small. this was you can tell by the reaction of the white house. in fact, behind the scenes mansion didn't even bother calling the president. he said an aide to the white house to just let him know i'm going to go in fox news and say no, i'm not even the courtesy of a phone call when they tried to call him back. i mean that you senior aides in the white house. they were met basically no sorry. call back later. >> clearly a bit of whiplash because it seemed like they were getting to some sort of agreement there. >> i was never really sure if they were really going to get an agreement. certainly not
the 2.2 trillion that they were looking at. continually made throughout that entire time. the idea that this is too big and too much and. notice what he said in the fox news interview, there is some good in there. so the question is whether or not they're going to take something. for example, the child care tax credit, probably the single most effective antipoverty device for children in this country for families and children in this country expires at the end of this that that was going to be in build back better. are they going to trade at least take that out. and he did couple more things. even speaker pelosi early on that said maybe we should do fewer things bigger rather than train push everything in there, which is what they try to do and then through legislative mechanics come up with the same number, but i'm feeling that there still a deal to be made. but we won't see until the new year. and it certainly is not going to be a very good christmas for the bidens or for or for the progressives in congress right now.
>> well, we did hear from schumer that he will probably hold a vote on this in january. is there is there time then do you think, to cobble something together. can it still be saved or like you said, is just going to be broken up now and offered up in separate legislation. >> well, it's even sure whether or not you would vote for in separate legislation. i mean, that's the whole point. the idea of a big bill is that you put in staff that some people like some people don't like some people like that to be like other parts and you kind of deal with the possibility that on stand-alone buildings bills, certain things could die and you put them all together to make them all go at the same rate. so i think they still want to do that. i think the child care tax credit is going to be number one in that ice. i still think there's some issues regarding taxes corporations that could you what? there's still some pay for us, which is congressional speak for making sure that your should pay for what it is you're spending that they can be negotiated. but right now build back better as it is with all the different aspects
of it, including the climate change and other parts. it is dead and they're going essentially figure out what will build back better. the smaller bill be if they're going to get something done in january. lot of brainstorming that's going to need to be done michael, before we let you go, we do want to. i know that. >> house speaker nancy pelosi. she's set to speak in san francisco in a couple of hours here. but we're also hearing that she might be actually seeking reelection. >> yeah, there's report out that she was going to do it. and for those reports, there was really wasn't any push-back from anyone in the camp. i think that's probably the right you're going you seen the retirements like jackie spear and others. but i think leaving is would not be a good, the matter what happens in the midterm elections in 2022 taking her out of that equation. now from her point of view would not be a great thing. so it's a good thing for san francisco. it's and i'm really happy that she's continuing. and she
certainly proved that she is still the most effective speaker and history and history. the united states. >> and turning 82 in march. let's not forget still have wheels quite a bit of power there. if you watch if i would if i was like i like that. it 82 teachers like the new 62 especially when to nancy pelosi. so people underestimate or to their detriment every year. she's going to be just that at age. is that just number for her. >> not hang it up just yet. all right. michael, thank you so much for joining us. talk with you soon. we'll be right with you soon. we'll be right back. ♪ ♪ you are my fire ♪ ♪ the one desire ♪ ♪ you are, you are, ♪ ♪ don't wanna hear you say... ♪ ♪
