announced that tax season is starting on monday, january 24th. that is when the agency will begin accepting and processing 2021 tax year returns. administration officials are already warning, though it's going to be a frustrating season as the agency grapples with a backlog of returns from previous years. the irs commissioner says it will do everything possible with the resources it has available the tax filing season will and on april, the 18th this year for most individuals rather than the usual deadline of april. the 15th. that's because that is as a patient day will be observed in washington, dc on the kron is shining a spotlight on the disparities between who gets paid sick days and who does not. almost 80% of all private sector workers get at least one paid sick day. that's according to a national compensation survey. >> but many workers are vulnerable, particularly those in the low income bracket.
only 33% of workers whose wages are at the bottom 10% get paid sick. leave a survey by harvard's shift project found that 65% of workers who reported being sick in the last month said they went to work anyway. meanwhile, san francisco will consider permanent sick leave supervisor gordon mar introduce a public health emergency ballot measure last week. it would make sure that city employees and private companies with more than 100 employees get paid if they get sick and have to quarantine or care for a family member. the board still has to approve the measure for it to be on the ballot. this coming june. now to our 4 zone forecast as we give you a live look outside at the fairly quiet bay bridge toll plaza and large. he's we have a pretty quiet week ahead, right? yeah, just want to see get a little break and all that stormy weather gives a chance to dry out and just enjoy the sunshine a bit. nice to see that this weekend. i see again today. your skies. we'll see partly cloudy skies overnight tonight. it will be cold in some spots. >> some low is going to be
dropping down in the 30's and low 40's inland. want to give you a look at long-range forecast right now. you can see the stream of moisture and you can see kind of the focus now that's way it's going to stay most that going to head well up to the north pacific northwest, all the way up into canada. keeping us dry through the middle the week. we are going to see some increasing coming up on the south. we're going to be watching that closely to see some that rotate on in from a weak area of low pressure. you see the model's trying to paint some showers and the monterey bay. i don't think they'll get all the way in our direction. but something to watch going to see some clouds from that as well. but the overall trend is to keep us dry. and you see that dome of high pressure rebuilding through saturday and sunday, keeping us dry and mostly clear. so the jet stream going to stay well to the north. in fact, even as we get to next week for the most part, keeping the much of california dry. so not usual to get a dry period the middle of a january. and that's look like where we're going to get probably get back into some more rain as we get in late january and into february. right now, the whole storm track has shifted gears. looks
impressive out there right now. those clouds streaming up above that. we're just going to see some high clouds from that system right there. otherwise quiet out there on the doppler radar tonight. that's way it's going to stay that ridge of high pressure going to sneak in overhead for tomorrow. that means we're going to see a lot of sunshine and a few high clouds, some very mild temperatures, some places moving well into the 60's by tomorrow afternoon. numbers break down like this after overnight lows in the 30's in the 40's by tomorrow afternoon. we're in the 60's in most spots. couple 50's along the coastline. but as high of 67 degrees in morgan hill in concord, about 64 degrees in santa rosa next few days, we've got some sunshine and some passing clouds continuing with a few more clouds on wednesday and thursday into friday. staying dry right through the weekend. >> and now kron 4 sports. >> chase center is still in its infant stages. the building is about 2 years old and haven't had many memorable moments, especially when you factor in covid in games being played without fans. but man,
last night, the building was truly baptize chase center had its first defining moment. klay thompson made his return to the court for the first time in 941 days. if you're counting, that's nearly 31 months over 134 weeks and 27 holidays in clay. he didn't disappoint either. he finished with 17 points in 20 minutes and chase center with louder than i have ever heard. it's a defamation. miss clay doesn't even do it. death. >> love our way i know they were. hard for me to last 2 years and so special. i mean, i knew it would be try to visualize this moment for for years, really. and gosh, was worth every second. and i just i'm just excited. kind of get out the way now. i can get back in the rhythm of things because the last 2 years was different with rehab. and now like computer have to reprogram. i approached everything in. that's a
blessing. so i'm very thankful for that invasion and the love they showed me with. >> welcome back. clay. now not only did sunday, see the return of klay thompson, but both the forty-niners and raiders lacked a postseason berth and they both did so in dramatic fashion. the niners came all the way back from 17 points down on the road in los angeles. they went on to win in overtime. they'll now have to dallas to take on the cowboys in the wild card round in jerry's world. that game is at one 30 on sunday. meanwhile, the raiders, they also played an overtime thriller. they beat the chargers at home in a shootout. daniel carlson, a field goal as time expired to win this one. the raiders will play in cincinnati against the bengals on saturday at one, 30 should be great games. >> he's only been to a number of good and bad things. you look at the game yesterday.
you go through a bunch of good about it's about just fighting and not worry about and do whatever you can to come out on top of him. i'm just pumped that we're still fighting. we still got a game this week that is guaranteed to isis one all to make sure that we put all the work in this week and leave it all on the field. so it is said and done hopefully get a chance to play again. we'll have a great deal of >> pride for our team and and the way in which they compete. and i think that's what we try to preach every day. we try to preach, trying to find a way to get a little bit better improve. the day is over and again, you know, we get ourselves overtime game again. and certainly somewhere in there we improved a little bit. >> the san jose earthquakes had a homegrown signing today. the club brought in will richmond from stanford. richmond was born in san francisco in raisin p mount over in the east bay. he's the 9th homegrown signing ever in first with a connection to san francisco, richmond was expected to be a very early pick in the upcoming grant draft. had he not signed with san jose. so that school
growing up for the club that you played for through their youth organizations and all that stuff has to be a dream come true. i'm sure mom and dad are happy to that baby boy, staying close to the next. all right. that is your look at sports. we'll be right back after the break. thank you, jason. coming up, a lifesaving transplant. doctors use a big part in a patient. >> we'll explain more on this first for medical science.
>> a first for medical science and a last ditch effort to save a man's life. doctors in baltimore transplanted a pig's heart into a human patient picks heart. that's right. they say the surgery was a last-ditch effort to say 57 year-old david been his life, but it's still too soon to know if the operation will end up being a success. doctors say it does mark a step forward in the decades long quest to use animal organs for lifesaving transplants for humans. doctors at the university of maryland school of medicine where the surgery took place on friday say that then it is doing well. 3 days after surgery. that is remarkable. understand they basically told him. >> he had no other options. he couldn't get human heart for whatever reason, medically. and it was either this or he was going to die. and they said even this was a bit of a longshot so far, at so far is hanging in there so far. so good science is marching
