particularly in states with tighter gun laws that might only support smart guns. that was markie. martin reporting for us this morning. day. >> quite a bit of cloud cover looking at for today as those temperatures get up to the lower 60's going on. can't rule out a little sprinkle. we'll check in your 4 zone forecast. an extended in just a bit. kron. 4 morning news continues.

7:46 am
putting this all into motion, you'll see what we're talkingp about with this low. that's going to be around for a couple of days. it's going to be quite intrusive for skies in terms of keeping some cloud cover here, but not doing much beyond that. as you can see and will wear out by the middle of the week. here's futurecast for there. you see some clearing off to the east bay peninsula. still kind of shrouded in cloud cover here. it really does this for tonight tomorrow. so looks like considerable clouds for your monday. again, until we start to clear things out, looks like by tuesday, more importantly, probably by wednesday. so what goes on into the future? well, we get that clear patch. there goes away the low we clear out going into next weekend, still going to keep some scattered clouds in here. but the deal is most of the juicy traffic that's up towards our north. we're not getting in the beneficial rain with all of this. this is typical with the la nina weather pattern dry from our perspective, it's now starting to live up to that before we were like all the hype. and where is the action? not that we're complaining with rain, but now we're into this dry pattern which looks like it's going to continue
7:47 am

7:56 am
professions. and for others, they say the masks actually hid some undesirable features. finally, it's also possible masks made people more attractive because they directed attention to the eyes, making them a little bit more mysterious, which is always attractive. i guess the findings are nothing new to the tech talk world last year. the term mask fishing was trending on the social media site. it's basically considered another form of catfishing. when you look better wearing a mask, then you would without it. interesting stuff. this is weird. your favorite campbell soup now comes in candle form. if you like the taste of campbell's tomato soup and grilled cheese, maybe you'll like. >> the way it smells this well is also a candle with the fragrance of campbell's famous chicken noodle soup. you recall campbell's came out with stackable snowman. candles recently complete with a little snowman. that remains after the candle burns out. if you want to try candles,

>> 8.24 here on this sunday morning. a number of new movies are out in theaters this weekend, including a new movie in the scream horror franchise. dean richards has a preview.
8:25 am
>> there are certain rules to survive. believe me. i know. this one just feels different. >> back in 1997, a new breed of horror movie was unleashed with the now iconic scream with the ghost faced killer ravaging a small town and its young inhabitants, including nev campbell. courtney and david arquette. now the trio returns with a new naive cast who become the prey for the new but same old killer. the formula for the movie is intentionally similar to most of the others. it's because this version of scream takes the genre and deals with it as part of the storyline explained as if the murders in the town and the suspects are playing it out like a predictable horror movie. it's part of the genius of this movie. it's super software spoofing honoring and furthering the elements of the franchise that allow it to go to predictable places. but at
8:26 am
the same time makes fun of it. all. now there's no shortage of creepy characters, shocks and white knuckling moments that would make the franchise's original director, the late wes craven, proud. and it's great to see the legacy actors back and in pretty substantial roles in the movie. horror films are usually my favorite genre because there's usually not much to the mix of blood and gore. and this has those. but it also has a level of cleverness that's usually missing in these movies. i give it a dean's list b, plus, it's in theaters only because heard a voice. also this week, they're shakespeare's the tragedy of macbeth. you may remember it from an english class from back in the day. the story of greed in last in power and the willingness to do anything to achieve it here. you're basically watching a stage play been film. but from the perspective of a master class in acting from 2 time, oscar winner

about to be a 30 here on this sunday morning. welcome back to the kron. 4 morning news. thanks for joining us dave sphar is standing by in the weather center. he's got a look. we had some like semblance of maybe some moisture in the air this morning as hang around as a little bit happening aloft. yeah, good morning. well, good morning, everybody. just making note of it here in stormtracker for most of it is out to sea here. but some of it is happening off in their looks like in the east bay. things will clear out a little better for you. >> then along the peninsula where the clouds are probably reassembled. here's what looks like an half moon bay. pretty nice day. it looks like some people enjoying the beach today and there you have it as a calm and peaceful, see off towards the distance. there's that low kind of a little pesci fly in the ointment kind of situation. here is most of the traffic is around us. and this is cut off from that source of moisture. so doesn't do us much good except delivering some cloud cover here. the breakdown today variable clouds, much better looking in the east bay over the east bay hills, probably better clearing a little bit
8:31 am
more. the way of cloud cover development may be in the peninsula. upper 50's about 60 will go for height. we still have to deal with the slow probably tomorrow and maybe a little bit on tuesday before we kind of clear out the remainder of the week. now, this is the wet season. so every day that we go by dry like this. we fall behind from our bonanza in november-december coming up and it will have the 4 zone forecast in your extended noel. >> thanks, dave. turning now to our covid-19 coverage. private health plans are now required to cover over the counter covid-19 tests and the biden administration does has have plans to start shipping at home tests for free this week. but as reshad hudson reports, some democratic lawmakers say they're frustrated with the president's pandemic response. >> president biden is taking heat from members of his own party about the white house's response to the omicron surge. >> we didn't have enough equipment. we didn't have enough. >> testing ohio democratic senator sherrod brown says he understands concerns many americans are having trying to
8:32 am
find an at-home covid test. my own families had trouble getting enough tests for their their children. 5 senate democrats went as far as to send this letter to the white house. they complain of long lines at testing sites and want answers about the white house response to omicron. >> and plans for responding to future variants republicans like west virginia. senator shelley moore capito say the white house has simply dropped the ball. the availability of tests is critical. the administration should have known this, but brown says there's plenty of blame to go around. got to produce smart that's on both political parties that won the last 2 presidents in the last 2 congresses. capita says congress has already provided billions for testing for some reason. >> the administration has pulled back on this. the biden administration rejects it is not doing enough on testing. >> i'm directing my team to procure an additional half of additional 500 million more test to distribute for free.
8:33 am
>> and next week, the white house whole launch a web site to distribute 500 million free at home covid tests. >> in the east bay, oakland, it will soon require people who are 12 and older to show proof of covid vaccination to enter indoor businesses. the mandate will take effect on february. 1st, you'll start seeing notices on learning customers of the change affects restaurants, concert venues, gyms, museums, people 18 and older should also be prepared to show your id to be cross checked with your vaccination card. pharmacies and beauty supply store. all to have announced they're cutting back hours due to covid related issues. the store citing staff shortages and safety concerns. all of alton has 1300 stores are now going to open at 10:00am. every day except sunday when open at 11:00am stores will close at 07:00pm on weekdays 08:00pm on fridays and saturdays and 06:00pm on
8:34 am
sundays. meanwhile, walgreens and cvs are also making similar cuts to their 9,000 stores. some even close throughout this entire weekend. they had to close about 100 pharmacies in total. fake testing sites are popping up all across the country here in the bay area. we've been dealing with them as well with covid tests in such high demand. scammers are taking advantage. can you tell the difference between a scam and the real thing brian entin explains. >> you've probably seen covid pop up sites. they look quick and easy but be aware some are sending the wrong test results sending results late or just never sending them at all. i still haven't heard anything. it was very frustrating, but then just really upset. and like devastated. the center for covid control has pop-up sites from coast to coast and they also have complaints throughout the country to a lot of them. accusations of emailing test results before people even took the test and concerns about identity theft. at the moment. it was it asked
8:35 am
for. >> my driver's license number or a lot of it. quite a bit of personal data i thought was a bit excessive. but i'm in the moment. i was desperate and 6. so i just went along with it. the company is under investigation by the department of justice in oregon and better business bureaus in multiple cities. i think what's so alarming is this isn't just one or 2 site. i mean, this is a big company with sites all across the united states. and it is also very concerning because people. >> our concern right now about their health, they're very concerned about the fact. is it a cold? is it covid? is that you what? what am i feeling right now? the center for covid control didn't respond to our calls. so we showed up to their pembroke pines, florida location. is this the center for covid control? >> this is this. this is it. yes, just this picnic table. >> the location really is just a picnic table in a couple of
8:36 am
boxes. the employees here told us they were not allowed to talk to the media and soon after we received a statement from the center for covid control saying they were going to stop testing for the next week because of what they call high patient demand and operational strain. bottom line, the better business bureau says to look at reviews before choosing a location. ask your doctor for recommendation. go with reputable companies and government testing sites. we could end up with a false results or no test results at all. it's just it's wrong and it's infuriating and >> it's just not ok. so i i just feel like it's something that people need to know about. >> that was brian entin reporting for us. one of the main issues is no one's really regulating the pop-up testing sites. some states do require that they get a temporary business license. but then the sites are being monitored for how the tests are performed or if the results are even delivered to the patients. all right. coming up on the kron, 4 morning news we've heard about ghost guns. but have you
8:37 am

9:13 am
9:14 am
9:15 am
>> welcome back. it is 9.15, on this sunday morning. it's time for another check of your weather forecast. dave spahr is standing by. he's taking a look over the bay this morning. little bit of cloud cover out there day. yeah, good morning to good morning, getting some blue. also in there mixed in in the mixture here. >> also, some haze leftover morning fog that we had golden
9:16 am
gate bridge again, kind of variable. cloudiness will do it. that's going to be pretty much what you'd expect throughout the day today. a little bit of an offshore wind that's at work. we'll get some birds going by to fluttering by the bay. so this low in our backyards continue to produce the sky conditions. this is why we or in this kind of middle zone between getting some rain from a low that's in our backyard to not getting clear skies. so we're kind of in the middle with all of this. and this little pesky low will be around for another day, 2 days or so before we clear out for the remainder of the week. now the traffic coming in off the pacific is going to be up and around us for the most part. and that's a familiar refrain that we've seen from those drought years. and it looks like that that is back in again. la nina is in control, which tends to me a drier winter for us. 53 for oakland. 54 going on for hayward. 57, half moon bay, aided by a little bit of that offshore wind little cooler run the delta and they did have some morning fog going on there today. 45 up to santa
9:17 am
rosa and 54 novato a decent day. but again, it will vary where you are in the bay around the peninsula. the models are saying quite a bit of cloud cover off to the east bay should open up a little better and a good chunk up there. the north bay, too, tomorrow will probably deal with quite a bit of this as well with the low so close to us until we finally start clearing out tuesday into the middle of the week. so the game plan is this considerable clouds today, an isolated sprinkle just as a mention here, 60 ish for this week, cloudy early in the week and then clearing out by mid week, maybe as early as tuesday and temperatures push a little further. that's what's going to feel more like spring in the next couple of days. then for the weekend, it's mild and sunny, lower 60's expected for highs. some sunday might see the return of some cloud cover, though. so for today, we'll call san francisco turning somewhat mostly cloudy. mild at 59 will do the lower 60's for oakland and san jose across the wider real estate lower 60's off to the east bay and up to the north bay. maybe 64 santa rosa in a bit. of course, we'll have the

are now required to cover over the counter covid-19 tests and the biden administration does have plans to stcrt shipping at home tests for free this coming wednesday. but as reshad hudson reports, some democratic lawmakers say they're frustrated with the president's pandemic response. >> president biden is taking heat from members of his own party about the white house's response of the omicron surge. >> we didn't have enough equipment. we didn't have enough. >> testing ohio democratic senator sherrod brown says he understands concerns many americans are having trying to find an at-home covid test. my own families had trouble getting enough tests for their their children. 5 senate democrats went as far as to send this letter to the white house. they complain of long lines at testing sites and want answers about the white house response to omicron. >> and plans for responding to future variants republicans like west virginia. senator shelley moore capito say the white house has simply dropped
9:32 am
the ball. the availability of tests is critical. the administration should have known this, but brown says there's plenty of blame to go around. got to produce smart that's on both political parties that on the last 2 presidents in the last 2 congresses, capita says congress has already provided billions for testing for some reason. >> the administration has pulled back on this. the biden administration rejects it is not doing enough on testing. >> i'm directing my team to procure an additional half of additional 500 million more test to distribute for free. >> and next week, the white house whole launch a web site to distribute 500 million free at home covid tests. >> over in the east bay, oakland will soon require people who are 12 and older to show proof of covid vaccination to enter indoor businesses. the man it's going to take effect next month. the very first you'll start seeing notices on business is alerting customers of the change. this coming week
9:33 am
effects restaurants, concert venues, gyms, museums, people 18 and older should be prepared to show their id as well so they can be cross checked with your vaccination card. now, fake testing sites have been popping up all across the country here in the bay area. we've dealt with them as well with covid test in such high demand. it seems scammers are taking advantage. so how can you tell the difference between a scam and the real thing brian entin explains. >> you've probably seen covid pop up sites. they look quick and easy but be aware some are sending the wrong test results sending results late or just never sending them at all. i still haven't heard anything. it was very frustrating, but npthen just really upset. and mike devastated. the center for covid control has pop-up sites from coast to coast and they also have complaints throughout the country to a lot of them. accusations of emailing test results before people even took the test and concerns about identity theft. at the moment. it was it asked
9:34 am
for. >> my driver's license number or a lot of it. quite a bit of personal data i thought was a bit excessive. but i'm in the moment. i was desperate and 6. so i just went along with it. the company is under investigation by the department of justice in oregon and better business bureaus in multiple cities. i think what's so alarming is this isn't just one or 2 site. i mean, this is a big company with sites all across the united states and its is also very concerning because people. >> our concern right now about their health, they're very concerned about. the fact is a cold. is it covid? is that you what? what am i feeling right now? the center for covid control didn't respond to our calls. so we showed up to their pembroke pines, florida location. is this the center for covid control? >> this is this. this is it. yes, just this picnic table. >> the location really is just a picnic table in a couple of
9:35 am
boxes. the employees here told us they were not allowed to talk to the media and soon after we received a statement from the center for covid control saying they were going to stop testing for the next week because of what they call high patient demand and operational strain. bottom line, the better business bureau says to look at reviews before choosing a location. ask your doctor for recommendation. go with reputable companies and government testing sites. we could end up with a false results or no test results at all. it's just it's wrong and it's infuriating and >> it's just not ok. so i i just feel like it's something that people need to know about. >> that was brian entin reporting for us. one of the main issues is no one's really regulating the pop-up testing sites. some states do require that they get a temporary business license, but they aren't being monitored for how the tests are performed or if the results are even actually delivered to the patients. something had to pharmacies
9:36 am

9:37 am
into the station here in times square. police say that's when a homeless man pushed the woman in front of the train to her death. the incident sent fear and shock waves through the only time i safe and to come up with a plan on a train track in one eye for the cops eric. i didn't have a lot of work to do. it was around 9.30, saturday morning. the victim, a 40 year-old woman. >> was waiting for our train at her normal stop strap hangers on the platform at the time could not believe what they witnessed. another act of violence underground almost immediately the focus shifted and the blame game cannot believe. this point is you will then be pushed to death. >> gabby was on the he's uk being said is going to be new eric adams out. he's about. >> the man who got to clean it up, move all the film from the
9:38 am
train station because think all this happening to some of the 4th there. eric adams showed up to the scene to see what happen firsthand. this comes almost a week after adams and governor kathy hochul announced a new transit safety plan. it includes getting the homeless population. they help they need and having more police officers rotate in and out of the system on a daily basis. already thousands of officers are assigned to you're in the subway system, but some strap hangers believe it's still not enough. and as far as the plan right now, the plan we announce. >> we executed immediately. and we often look, look at a case like this and we don't really acknowledge how many lives we say because we executed that plan. we're going to continue to modify. we will continue to enhance in the days to come i to. we can ensure every passenger in the system is safe. >> that was stacy-ann gooden reporting for us this morning.

9:40 am
pairing or a keypad code. the user can program it. however, they'd like or what those are. the warmest tactile push buttons. there's 3 of them. you can do a 4 to 6 digits acts. much electronic door lock. what i mean, what coffee pot is smarter than my firearm. we spoke to co-founder ginger chandler, former senior vice president of remington. she says now is the time to bring the gun to market. >> consumers are more comfortable with smart devices and technology has gotten smaller. is any fear the gun go off when they use areas if needed next year? absolutely. i mean, just like a mechanical firearm. if it doesn't go up when you want it to. >> you could under stress be hurt. just like the mechanical firearm goes through all the reliability testing. so, you know, it's going to work. we're putting this going through that same said every level but there is skepticism from gun shop owners. every guy on the planet is basically
9:41 am
held together with been springs. that stuff is physical. if you put a break into that. >> that require some sort of electronic into this and the batteries that, for example, why? >> yeah, i mean, i think that that is probably the concern. >> and this kind of product has been promised for years and has the potential for a big industry shake-up, particularly in states with tighter gun laws that might only support smart guns. that was markie. martin reporting for us safe. >> we'll see lower to middle 60's going on for today. excuse be some lower 60's going on for today. upper 50's at that as well. although warming up towards the end of this week, will we will be in the middle 60's. keep it here. kron 4 morning news continues.

9:46 am
have a nice little rain event going on. so going forward there you see that low is gone. then upstream. we don't get slammed by any systems. here is the traffic is pretty much remaining towards the north. very much a la nina like here we have 4 zone forecast. check-in like this. 59 san francisco into about a 60 daly city pacifica at 59 62, san bruno, burlingame. 61 with foster city at 62, also from mountain view and palo alto at 64 63 san jose, santa clara. 64 along with cupertino, mid 60's along the east bay shoreline, tri valley at 62. 62 also for walnut creek. 61 for berkeley, the les, what 58 59 for fairfield with napa at 61 in 59 for santa rosa. but things are dry or warm-up coming our way, getting into the lower to middle 60's. it looks like by the end of the week we have your kind of her persistence forecast. a cloud cover early on here on monday. maybe lingering a little tuesday.

we go, we've got to let you know, celine dion is canceling the remainder of the north american leg of her courage world tour. and that's the way it is on her website. she says she is being treated for severe and persistent muscle spasms. >> the 5 time grammy winner said she was hoping to be good to go by now, but she adds she needs to be patient and follow the regiment. her doctors have ordered will wait for us. celine dion had shows beginning in march. she was set to perform at the chase center and april. she previously canceled shows in las vegas for the same medical reasons. so hopefully at some point in the near future, we can see her back on stage yet again. some good news when it comes to the increased mask guidance. a new study revealing. >> you may already have realized over the past couple of years, apparently wearing a mask may make you more attractive to others. researchers at cardiff university asked women to rank men's faces with without a mask. and then with a mask, scientists found faces covered with medical masks, were
9:55 am
considered most attractive, especially when you're in those blue medical masks. researchers say. that could be several reasons as to why one of the reasons is that women do associate a mask with health care workers and those caring or medical professions. for some, they say the masks hid undesirable features. finally, it's also possible masks made more people attractive because they directed attention directly to the eyes, making them more mysterious. i'm sure the blue masks as well. maybe highlighted some folks who have the lighter eyes. so maybe that was a reason as well. the findings are nothing new to the tech talk world last year. the term mask fishing was actually trending on the social media site basically considered another form of catfishing. when you look better wearing a mask than you would with that. well, your favorite campbell soup, if you go to your friend's house the next time and it smells like tomato soup or chicken noodle. this might
9:56 am
be. why. if you like the taste of campbell's tomato soup and grilled cheese, you might like the scent of it. there's a candle with the fragrance of campbell's famous chicken noodle soup as well. the company came out with these stackable snowman. candles recently complete with actually a snowman that remains after the candle burns down. you probably won't be able to find one right. this second, only to 1000 of them were made. they are so that i checked the website after iran is at 7 o'clock. they are sold out. they were $24. maybe they'll come back again next so be on the lookout next time. before we go, we want to give you a check of your 7 day forecast. as you can see, a lot of sunshine going on. once we hit today. again, dave was saying we had little bit a chance of moisture in the air, a little bit of showers, i'm not sure how much that's going to materialize. however, enjoy the 60's. we've got them all the way through the week. in
