it's situated over santa rosa, saint helene and that area that's going to continue to travel southward. so, look, it's going to be situated across the bay area around 10, 9 o'clock. so today we're going to continue tracking that as that continues to travel down south also looks like up in the sierra. we are going to see some snow. i'm also looking at around 9 o'clock for that as well. your current temperatures outside pretty cool today. cooler than we were yesterday nap of allay antioch, low 50's. 49 in livermore, san jose. you're at 50 down there. fremont. 49 and santa rosa 50. we're going to continue to track that system will tell you want another one is expected to arrive. but for now, james, we'll send it over to you, ok, randi, thank you. let's give a quick look at the roads this morning. we've had the bay bridge looking real nice for us all morning long. and that's still the case here. at 7 o'clock. hardly. >> much traffic at all. as you work your way past the toll plaza and over the span of the san francisco. it's an easy ride. in fact, faster than usual this morning. the san mateo bridge has been a fairly
well easy right as well. you can see traffic, although there's a bit of it on the span. it's all moving. no brake lights to speak of. nothing really slow you down as you make your way out toward the peninsula. up to the north star west bound 5.80, right across the richmond, sandra fell bridge shows really easy conditions here at the toll plaza. no problems on the span and you're connected to one o one up in marin county is looking good. 1, one southbound across the golden gate bridge is also flowing without any issue either. the chp has been out there and so far their logs are clear. it's a pretty nice ride this morning. all right. let's get to the east bay now in our headlines happening today. we have some teachers in oakland planning a sickout to try to bring attention to the covid safety concerns that they have. the oakland unified school district sent out notices to parents last night about this possible sickout. it's not sanctioned by the teachers union per se. so it's kind of unclear at this point how many educators are, how many other schools plan to participate? but the teachers involved in this sick out say they have a list of demands for the district. they want.
and 95 masks. they want weekly testing. they want covid leave and they also want hepa filters in large rooms. >> we would love to be in in person just as much as everyone else wants us to be. but the fact of the matter is our campuses are safe right now. we need some time to get the resources that we need on campus in order make it safe. >> so the district plans to keep the schools open for students today. in fact, district officials say that covid protocols are in place. in fact, they say they have hepa filters already distributed to every classroom and regular testing is available to all students and staff. this is something that we're hearing echoed all around the bay and san francisco teachers asking the district for the same. they want more measures to protect them and the kids. >> against this is after hundreds of teachers stage is sick out of their own to bring attention to the safety protocols that they want in place. proper has been following the story for us in san francisco this morning.
sarah. >> yeah, unfortunately, even after that sick out to the district met with the teachers union in san francisco and they could not come to an agreement about safety precautions. of course, everyone wants everyone to be safe yet. they still have a few demands that the district is not quite ready to meet very close, but teachers say not close enough and not soon enough. yesterday's over 615 teachers called out sick the to the the district had to scramble and trying to get subs, trying to get credentialed people to fill in the sickout some of the people who called out. and then there's also people who are actually sick of actually been exposed after the first 3 days. back from winter break. the union says covid cases went from 9 on monday to 100. 22 cases on wednesday for staff and students. >> the teachers union is asking for 10 paid sick days for all covid-related reasons
for the district to provide to n 95 or kn 95 mask for every student and employee each day and for weekly covid testing for all students and staff at every district work site and the district. take a look what they're offering. not exactly what teachers wanted 5 days instead of 10 days of paid sick leave for covid blaming the state for cutting funding for the additional days that they provided last year. the district says they can provide a reasonable best effort to maintain supply of high quality masks like n 95 or kn 95 mask. but for employees only and they've agreed to make weekly covid testing available to all students and staff at every district site during normal work hours. the union president posted a video after negotiations on twitter. we have a clip from that and then you hear from a spokesperson with the district, all of them talking about this mask distribution. >> we also have to hold the line to keep students included in the mass distribution because as if usd proposed
only to give up asked a staff that we were cool with that. finally, we continue to advocate for testing to be available at every student school site along with their collection of the specimens. we offered to stay at the table multiple times throughout the day today because we know that health and safety agreement is crucial to combating the spread, keeping everyone safe and our schools operating base usd has been distributing ppe, including surgical and cloth masks monthly to all schools throughout the fall. >> we're going to continue to distribute ppe and include kn 95 mask to school sites this week. >> so it seems like they're almost on the same page. but teachers are saying, you know, they're frustrated because now the district says we will meet with you again next thursday, teacher said, well, wait a minute, we still have to teach every day until then, of course, besides weekend. and so they're extremely frustrated by this. they want their demands to be met now, not next thursday and could
not even be met next thursday. so we'll continue to fall. this you how teachers react. will they continue with the sickout? will they continue with maybe doing a strike? we will see for now reporting live in san francisco. sarah stinson, back to you. >> all right. thank you very much, sara. same story in the mount diablo unified district. 143 teachers were absent from school yesterday and the district says it's because of covid and that they're having an ongoing teacher shortage. but despite the challenges, the district says that they're still been able to give the students the lesson they want from are they need from other credentialed staff members been able to step in and they say that they do expect the continued number of staff absences to be high in the future, but they don't anticipate having any trouble in terms of philly. issues have to close schools because the staffing shortages, the union for the teachers, though, has a different story. they say that they're in contract negotiations. they've hit a wall and then a strike is possible. and covid has
taken a toll of public transport this morning. both ac transit and muni telling riders because of a spike in cases among employees. you are going to notice some problems with trying to get where you need to be on time because they just can't roll the buses and everything without the staff. sfmta tweeting out the similar warning first earlier in the week about employees being forced to stay home and quarantine and that having an effect on your getting around town. >> well, along with the surge in covid cases, we have area hospitals now also seeing a rise in hospitalizations according to the state's data, the number of icu covid positive patients has increased in contra costa county from just 7 back on december. 21st to now 25 on january 5th. so this is post the holidays in the south bay, santa clara counties, also seeing their icu capacity go up and the high number of covid infections is putting a strain on hospital resources, though. doctors in santa clara county say they are ready for the search.
>> you work in hospitals regularly to make sure that do everything they can that contingency planning. and that building stopped from other areas that necessary. given what we're seeing in terms of community transmission, in terms of case numbers, we're monitoring the situation. very toasty. >> health officials are encouraging people to call the health precautions they can. and that includes wearing a mask distancing and also getting her vaccinations and boosters. >> as you know, it's hard to find a covid test. if you look you know, into any stores, if you go to the pharmacies and even getting an appointment is difficult. so now, of course, >> scammers are out there trying to take your money and not just to basically what you need because they know you're desperate. >> kron four's camila barco is live in san francisco with what you need to be wary about. camilla. good morning. >> yes, like you guys said those at home covid tests. kids are a hot commodity right now. but federal authorities say that scammers are taking advantage of the situation and there are people out there selling fake at home covid

jobs added last month. we expected 422,000. so not even half of what we had expected came in the unemployment rate that did drop to 3.9% to your load. so economists say this monthly number doesn't take into account self employed and they think that a lot of people during the pandemic did start their own businesses. so that may not be accounted for in these numbers. and the markets mixed they die. just these will americans went all out this holiday, roughly one 3rd of shoppers spent more than $1000 and on their credit cards and went into snow wallet hub says many people overspent are in the gift giving and a lot of folks a bit or more than half actually said even though the omicron variant was kind of raging during christmas, that it did not affect their plans and mortgage rates climb past 2021 levels for next mortgage rates started off the year with a bang. they moved higher this week. the 30 year fixed rate

you're going to have nice conditions. so if you are thinking about traveling up there, that would be a good thing to do, maybe tomorrow because there is a winter weather advisory in place for the sierra. that's from 06:00am this morning until 6 o'clock at night. so if you are, you don't want to wait. definitely bring some change with you up there as you're traveling. we're currently tracking that rain. we've been talking about radar shows us where it's situated over currently. so you can see much of vacaville the north bay novato traveling down to san rafale. looks like it's even touching some areas of richmond and delay hill at this hour. that's going to continue traveling south throughout the morning. so 9.30, looks like pretty much the east bay as well as san francisco is covered with rain. and then as you go on into the rest of the day, the south bay as well around noon here, and then that's going to be pretty much done and moving now around 5 o'clock today. so after getting off work, you're going to see drier conditions for us. let's also get a look at your highs were in the 50's for pretty much most of the bay, the low 50's. so up in
chile, home napa, nevada mill valley, all lower 50's the east bay as well for you. pretty cool livermore. 48 morgan hill, you're 48 as well. and the south bay. 52 in san jose. our 7 day in showers and some snow up in the sierra. we get a break into the weekend. we're going to have some sunshine. so that'll be nice. we'll see another weak system make its way into the bay. that's going to be the start of this upcoming week. and then in the lows in the upper 30's, low 40's along the coast, mid 40's throughout the week, james. all right. rain a thank you. as we check the commute for you again. it's been a nice light right here. not a lot going friday at the bay bridge. >> you're westbound 80 right from oakland and san francisco getting off without a hitch. let's get to the san mateo bridge because it looks like it's pretty smooth there as well. you can see there's definitely more cars in the shot that they're all moving at the limit. nobody's really slowing down for anything. so you're making good time across the bay, at least on the southern edge to the north. let's check out your san mateo bridge where you're richmond.
sandra fell bridge right? you actually see a few raindrops on the lens. and that's part of that's rain system. that rain was just talking about. but at least the traffic's moving well. and once you're in marin county heading down the golden gate bridge, you can certainly see there's a little more wetness on the span rain is beginning to fall lightly across the golden gate bridge. traffic, though, moving without any problem. so it's a smooth ride for you this morning for where you are. >> 7.48 right now who will be smooth sailing for jimmy around the niners. they are getting ready to face the rams this sunday and that fingers. the question hopefully it'll heal up in time and hopefully we'll see klay thompson to for the warriors. >> as they're hoping to get a win after a couple back-to-back losses on the road. but they'll be in town on sunday across for sports. director jason dumas says look at all of this. >> the warriors finishing their road trip in the big easy, but they had to do it without steph curry, draymond green and want us connell. anderson, all out so tall order and guess what? the clay
countdown to the next game is on. all righty. there's clay right there. 2nd quarter now, andre, iguodala those about he's leading to break the other way. give it up top to rock. come to think amanda. have 13 points off the bench early 4th quarter. the pels took control of this game. gary clark's 3 pointer. give them a seven-point lead. then with 2 minutes left, brandon ingram probably going i'm not sure if he'll be an all-star come their record, but he's really good. he had 32 and 11. big give up, though, jordan poole from the logo. a minute left, giving them some hope. then with 59 seconds left, think amanda steele and it's a three-point game. the warriors trying to get a stop now, one possession game devontae graham 3 is off the back board. but josh hart gets the long rebound. he beat school
to the ball opportunity loft warriors lose one. 0, one. 96. they return home for a sunday date with the cleveland cavaliers the wait could be over. klay thompson all but confirmed there. but in the meantime, steve kerr said he was pleased with this. effort despite the loss. >> i was really proud of our guys, you know, being a short-handed gave the young guys good chance to play an experience of. phil game on the road i thought our our youdg guys gain valuable experience. i was really proud of the team for. fighting all the way through and and giving themselves a chance at the end. >> bob book marin, the sharks trying to snap a two-game skid. they took on the sabres and snowy buffalo. first period. sharks go up a goal timo meier. i set up. there's
meir time earth times. haha, it's 14 goal of the season. it's 2, nothing. sharks. 3 minutes later, thomas hurdle probably been their best player. they hear one of them his 17th of the year. >> sharks hang on to win 3 to 2. they are in the city of brotherly love on saturday. the forty-niners continue to prep for the rams. huge game. and once again, jimmy garoppolo participated in team drills and he was throwing deeper pratt beeper passes and he was in wednesday's practice. but he still nursing that ucl sprain in his thumb and according to his tight end, he's progressing pretty well. so the jury still out on who is going to start that week. 18 matchup in los angeles. >> compared to last week, i think it looks you know, don't know. feels like i know chip bones don't feel great. and i jimmy is, quote, speak for itself hurts. so whatever he's
doing out there. i think is doing a really good job so far. you know, we'll see what happens these next couple days as it a huge game. obviously, you know, we need to win get to the playoffs. but you just noticed that you said you got to stay consistent. got to do what you've been you know, the things i've been making success, we got to continue those. don't take short cuts. this is not really the week to do that. >> just a quick reminder. if the niners when they are in the playoffs taking on the rams, the rams have a lot to play for 2 because of the rams win. they win the nfc west. now the niners lose. they can still make the playoffs. they just need the saints to lose to the falcons, which in my opinion, it's unlikely. so don't put it up the chance to take care of business at so fi stadium. >> and don't forget the niners game against the rams at one. 25, it's an afternoon game on sunday chairman. >> yeah. looks like we have do or die. 72 will be right back.
>> 7.55 the time getting our first look at what commercial space station's of the future might look like. they're ready. here's some concept. images from blue origin. the company was founded by jeff bezos. they say they're going to use 130 million dollars in seed money from nasa to develop what they're calling
the orbital reef, which is a partnership with sierra space and boeing. so will be a joint project. the goal is to launch the first module in the space business park in the 2nd half of this well. and there are other companies to take this as origins. this is another company's the wagon wheel right? which would create artificial gravity out there. stick all it's a little shot. you saw people standing on the ground on the ground looking out the well, right. like and in like a fancy room. so we would i get to stay in. there is a word that hotel for you or each of those modules around the ring. they would rent out the different businesses who want to use him for labs to do their experiments in like the we work in in space. you know, you just rent. that's that's exactly it. yeah, in the center there. that's elon musk's starship. so they're even planning having things like that dock with it. >> eventually some day covid safe out to the news from there. james. and at that will
be my bubble. you could be down 76 right now. i you can't wait. the blast me off. san francisco teachers are making demands about covid safety because they want the district to do something to make them in the kids safe. the district has a different plan, though. so the kind of at odds we'll have the details on that. and if you're looking for and at home covid deaths, i know it's been difficult but don't be fooled. law enforcement agency there. some scammers out there and they want you to avoid getting ripped off and being left with nothing. you know, uses box. and coming up on the crop for more news, we're going to continue tracking the storm. we've really seen it go from north to santa rosa down south to san francisco. where will the green blob head next?
>> from the area's local news station. you're watching the kron. 4 morning news at >> well, thank you for letting us join you in your morning. maybe you're sitting home having a little coffee. maybe you're trying to get movin. i would say if you have dogs to walk, do it now, if you see that you're not in the green because if you're in the green. >> it's a little late. it's already starting a sprinkle out there for some most of that light rain, which is nice. but we are seeing it starting to fall. san francisco live pictures of the golden gate bridge which will show you later some wet roads out there for you right now, of course, on the upper right hand corner, you can see their snow falling up in the sierra. so lots to talk about
