>> and we're back at 5.43. with another check of the weather. we've got john trouble looking outside and actually looks pretty clear out there, john. yeah, it's definitely a clear morning that some of ours last week were when we were talking about so much fog. and then the weekend came, we're talking about so much wind and we're pretty much eliminating both of those factors for the vast majority of the bay area. so that means a pretty easy go this morning. your view outside at our cameras situated towards soma and the financial district looking clear enough, we are still seeing obviously some dark scar as skies. so not really looking at much of a view just yet. radar is otherwise looking at dry conditions, though, and we're going to stay that way through the remainder of the month today. the last week of january starts the last week of january. that is and next
5:45 am
weekend last weekend of the month. and all of it looks clear and dry much as we have been high pressure ridge responsible for all of that, that hope to result in the windy conditions we had friday and saturday. one of the reasons the fire down in big sur spread as fast as it did. winds have calmed down, though in temperatures are actually going to be a little cooler today. so that should give fire crews the upper hand down on the central coast here in the bay area. that just means a really pleasant day for us. lots of sunshine continuing to remain dry, which we would love to see switching up but might as well enjoy the dry weather while we've got it. some 50's right along the coastline and then it will be low to mid 60's elsewhere. south bay temperatures today in the mid 60's for san jose campbell and santa clara. that means 65 degrees for you. from fremont on over into the tri valley, it will be 63 while oakland up to richmond each at 60 degrees, north bay temperatures mostly in the low 60's until you get to the coastline. that's where you'll find some mid 50's a little cooler out that way. we also have a high surf advisory due
5:46 am
to some a pretty high breakers out there along the coastline. so they just want to stay further inland. temperatures remain steady all the way through the rest of this forecast. something we've got use to lately is the dry weather. not a whole lot of movement with temperatures. so as you do get outside this morning, bundle up and look forward to a comfortable feel later on. as far as our roadways go still nice and light out there. the bay bridge has been an easy go all morning. we don't have the metering lights on just yet. so we haven't seen the backup form at the toll plaza. only 8 minutes from the tolls and over to fremont street san mateo bridge, a 12 minute drive there. traffic moving along, just fine. even as we start to see a few more cars taken to the roads. richmond center fell bridge a 7 minute drive and still pretty empty. just like you're seeing out at the golden gate, james. all right, john, thank you very 5.46, let's talk warriors. they hung on to win against the utah jazz. >> we're also celebrating forty-niners winning over the weekend. so they're now going to face the rams in the nfc championship game. we have
5:47 am
kron four's kate rooney with the very latest in sports. >> some people are calling this the best weekend of playoff football we've ever had ever. we're going to get to that. but you think the nba is going to stop just because a few nfl kickers had their seasons on the line? no. so let's talk. >> warriors a big one at chase center. the utah jazz were in town in a possible postseason preview. steph curry without his splash brother. klay thompson was a late scratch due to some knee soreness. hope nothing serious. >> late in the second more years of one jordan poole drops jordan clarkson and hits the 3 20 points in the game for pole. he's been stepping it up when needed this season. 4th quarter now, 2 point warriors lead pull shot doesn't go this time. but come on. loney puts it back in 10 points for the big man. curry fired up for that. so we go to the final seconds of the game. bojan bogdanovic is 3. it out
5:48 am
and the put back will not fall as time expires. so the warriors hang on to win. 94 92 really close game. all right. now to the nfl divisional playoffs today. rams at bucs tom brady looking to get back to yet another super bowl. the bucks back from a 27 to 3 deficit. brady goes deep to mike evans. that in for a 55 yard. touchdown in tampa would eventually tie it at 27 27. but that stafford rally his team help from his favorite target cooper kupp making the 44 yard catch down to the bucs 12. so that day can win it from 30 yards out and his kick is god. the rams advance to the nfc championship final score 30 to 27. they will now take on the forty-niners for the right to go to the super bowl in the nfc championship. that game is next sunday at sofi stadium in la and all right. we go to the afc now bills at chiefs, buffalo.
5:49 am
>> up 3 with just over a minute left. this is a crazy finish. patrick mahomes over the middle to tyreek hill. turns on the jets. and he is gone even gives the defense the peace sign as he goes in for the 64 yard. touchdown. 33, 29 teams. but back come the bill. 17 seconds left. josh allen. but gabriel davis from 19 yards out. it's 36. 33 bills with 13 seconds left, but believe it or not, that was too much time from the homes. a 25 yard completion to travis kelsey put kansas city in field goal range harris and butler from 49 yards out makes the kick a 36. 36 tie and we are headed to overtime. chiefs won the toss and got the ball first and so mahomes didn't even give allen a chance hitting kelsey for the game winning touchdown. buffalo's offense to even get the chance to touch the ball in ot and the chiefs win it. 42 to 36. so they're going to host the
5:50 am
