francisco international airport. it is some clear skies out. there are really good conditions, but a major airlines are saying that starting tomorrow, there could be some issues. before we get to that story, let's get to the weather with dave spahr standing by with the a good afternoon, ella and everybody. we're still dealing with some of that scattered the cloud cover we have going on. we're kind of being sprayed by some high cloudiness a little bit. also to the mid levels. >>from the system up towards our north, there's the east bay shoreline, although you can still make up the nice sunshine here. you can see on storm tracker 4 and really the source of it is up towards the north. unfortunately, we're not going to get the beneficial effects of a nice juicy front dropping south, bringing us the beneficial rain temperature check for you. lower 50's line up the east bay shoreline. a chilly 48 santa rosa. 57 53 san francisco. 52 meanwhile for san jose and again, noting those scattered clouds throughout the afternoon. high temperatures managing into the lower 60's by this afternoon, again, focused on those inland areas for those temperature
12:34 pm
check. as far as any drizzle going on, some of the models are kind of pain that on there. but most people going to notice that kind of pesky cloud cover that just doesn't want to quite go away with. that will be with us again tonight. almost a repeat performance of what we had yesterday, although this is going to be more of a high level cloudiness going on. that will be the cas again tomorrow morning. and then by the afternoon, some clearing in earnest for a decent week, at least weather wise. now, the longer range forecast models will stop in the couple of spots here for you, boom by friday. as you can see, again, pieces of energy dropping south. this doesn't look like any real hope of any rain way into the weekend. looks pretty good. and then afterwards, another system drops to the south. that would be a nice front getting some rain. this doesn't look like it's going to happen in some moisture pops up from the south. looks like reminiscent of that low that cut off low that we had from last weekend hovering around our coast as late as next thursday. but the take away from all of this is a dry forecast. highs again today. lower 60's off to the far east bay about 60 ish up in the
12:35 pm
north bay. 56, san francisco. 56 also half moon bay. there you have it. we're 60's all the way to the weekend is january. i don't know as far as the lows are concerned, a little dip does happen on saturday were turn to some upper 30's. but in the meantime, mild overnight lows into the 40's, including those inland areas and 40's to around 50 happening at the coast. thanks, dave. let's get back to the airport says some major airlines say beginning tomorrow, thousands of flights could be canceled if a planned rollout of 5 g cell service isn't. >>put to a stop. there are fears over whether 5 g interferes with airplanes of all time, all temperature, which especially if a pilot is trying to land in bad weather. our dc correspondent trevor shirley has those details. >>well, as of this afternoon, both atnt an verizon's say they'll temporarily delay their rollouts of some 5 g towers around certain airports. 2 weeks ago, the airline industry struck a deal
12:36 pm
with a t n t and verizon to delay the rollout by 2 weeks that period ends tomorrow. right now over the next 24 less than 24 hours, what we're focused on is trying to come to a solution in a letter to president biden, airline ceos say they want the administration to ban the use of 5 g within 2 miles of airports until more safety data is collected. 5 g uses a ban with that can interfere with the plane's altimeter which tells the pilot how close to the ground they are. it's important to use during landings, especially in bad weather, tnt and verizon. both say their 5 g service will not interfere with the plane's instruments. atnt also criticized the faa today for not deploying this technology safely, which atnt says 40 other countries have already done. critics also say airlines knew for years this change was coming and failed to adapt their own technology. the administration says talks are ongoing about a solution. we believe that with
12:37 pm
cooperation, we can chart a path forward, but minimizing flight disruptions ensuring a safety and travel is a is a top priority. >>and the airlines say if no changes happen more than 1000 flights a day could be canceled or delayed. >>reporting in washington, i'm trevor shirley. >>if you plan to visit hawaii, also plan to get a covid-19 booster shot because if you don't want to quarantine when you arrive to the islands, that's a chance to do under the state's current safety program. travelers who don't get a booster will have to quarantine for 5 days unless they provide a negative covid-19 test within one day of travel. the program is changing the definition of fully vaccinated to include booster shots. the new changes are not expected to be put in place for at least another 2 weeks. where's the start of names serve? and they say that their butts have reached level 4 autonomy, which means that they make their own decisions. a majority of the time the rich demuro takes a look at the new milestone involving delivery robots.
12:38 pm
>>don't be surprised if you pass by an autonomous robot on its way to making a delivery. it looks like a shopping cart. did eyes like a shiny is ceo of serve robotics, a start-up with investments from uber, 7.11, and more to make self-driving that is a you would have the company recently reached a new milestone level 4 autonomy. this means it's robots can make deliveries on their own. they need to have enough smart enough intelligent. deal. the penny, be sure that would come out. we found are dying on people see remotely. last year the company made over 10,000 deliveries in the hollywood area using the robots but their movements were constantly being supervised. now serve robots will be delivering. uber eats orders mostly on their own agenda. food it can get medication.
12:39 pm
basically anything that's not to within the real-life. the robots can still call for human help if necessary, like during pick up and drop off when they encounter an intersection for when something unexpected happens. otherwise their movements are up to them and always wants to kind of rise to people. i think by an out of the out of the could see someone coming in with slow down it. i go to the side, make sure that that to thaw service says a majority of delivery demand is in areas. robots can handle. >>their goal is to take over 5% of human deliveries the next 5 years. and that would be equivalent to removing 80,000 off the roads. >>so that's miles car travel that you're trying mediate the benefit of bots, bring down costs and environmental impacts. i'm rich demuro and you are tech smart. >>coming up on kron-on one bay area company is coming up to
