5:00 am
>> good morning. 05:00am on this wednesday morning. thank you so much for joining us. here. it is. the 26th of january is we're rounding out the final week of the month. feels like it just started. but here we are nearly at the end. we've got john start off this hour with a check of the forecast on this wednesday. what you see in john, a little bit like yesterday, james, starting off with the fog, ending the day with the sunshine eventually very similar view from the east bay hills, looking down at that pool of fog and low cloud cover. >> that is settled into the bay all the way down into the south bay and even into our inland areas. so we are seeing dense fog along route such as highway one o 1, 6, 80 and out along highway 4 into the car. keane is in the delta. all these areas subject to some lower visibility much like we did see for your tuesday skies. do clear out really nicely come the afternoon. and under those clear skies will be right back into the 60's. another cool start, though, with 30's 40's across the bay area this morning. dublin, you're at 34 degrees right now. cloverdale at 35 napa
5:01 am
fairfield in concord, among other areas, dropping well into the 30's to start your wednesday. now, the bay bridge is looking at some conditions out there that are still really favorable. a 7 minute i% drive across the bridge. not a lot of traffic just yet. san mateo bridge are doing just fine as well. things moving along at the limit, their the richmond center fell. both has dense fog advisory along it as well as we did have a stalled vehicle that looks like it has been cleared out right there on that westbound span. nearing marine county. only 7 minutes to get you across there. golden gate bridge, a 20 minute drive to get you cross from 37 down to the tolls. james, thank you very much, john, to our big story this morning. it was late last night that the san jose city council passed a controversial gun liability insurance ordinance. >> it's the first gun reform law of its kind to be passed anywhere in the country and kron 4. sarah stinson is standing by live for us this morning to explain what this now means going forward. good morning, sir.
5:02 am
>> good morning, james. that's right. the mayor and those council members who did vote yes on this. they're feeling proud this morning to be leading the country in a one of its kind ordinance against gun violence. how it works is now once it is implemented, it require gun owners to have a liability insurance for each gun and we'll have to pay a $25 annual fee. >> that will go to the city and to nonprofits. now some of the council members who voted yes on this. they said that the vta mass shooting was really on the top of their mind. they really wanted to create some real change to stop gun violence. and it was 8 months ago today since that devastating shooting. so this is a quick turnaround for city to create and passed a new ordinance in response. the ordinance also aims to make sure guns don't end up in the wrong hands to prevent every day crimes. everyday gun violence, crimes that we see
5:03 am
how it will work. police officers will be asking for proof of insurance every time they encounter some with a gun or believe they have one. the $25 annual fee paid by gun owners will go directly to supporting community-based organizations. those that help prevent suicide. those who prevent gun violence and for gun safety classes. the mayor wrote this statement after the ordinance passing tonight, san jose became the first city in the united states to enact an ordinance to require gun owners to purchase liability insurance and to invest funds generated from fees paid by gun owners into evidence based initiatives to reduce gun violence and gun harm. he continued by thanking council members who continue to show their commitment to reducing gun violence and its devastation in our community. speaking of those one of the council members who voted yes on this, says that he wants other cities to follow, by example. >> particularly congress in washington that has been unable to do any action. and then while once, so it's
5:04 am
important that local municipalities come up with plans that work in our communities i think this is a great first step in that other cities will look to our model and follow our lead. once put something in place and we show that it works. >> city council will discuss this again on february 8th and it could go into effect august 8. the thing goes smoothly. as i said yesterday when i was reporting on this, the mayor does expect some push back and they are fully ready for any legal battles that come after this. for now, i'm sarah stinson reporting live back to james. all right, sarah, thank you very much. >> 5, 0, fours the time. and let's not forget the last night's vote comes as the vta marks 8 months since last year's mass shooting at the railyard in san jose. it was on may. 26 that samuel cassidy killed 9 of his co workers, according to authorities. cassidy legally owned and registered those guns that he
5:05 am
used. the shooting sparked new calls, though, for gun control measures like the one passed in san jose last night. in the east bay health officials in contra costa county say they believe the omicron variant has pete in the country. they say that the case rate actually peaked back on january 9th and hospitalizations peaked at the end of last week. however, there are still warning that hospitals are very full. the county currently has 281 covid patients that are hospitalized right now. the county expects fewer hospitalizations in the coming weeks. currently there are about 29,000 active covid cases in the county this morning. a tentative deal is now on the table between the oakland educators association and the oakland unified school district to keep teachers from walking out of the classroom. educators threat to strike and held sickouts for weeks over covid-19 safety concerns. the tentative deal calls for weekly testing at all school sites having access to n 95 and higher quality masks, better ventilation and more
5:06 am
outdoor spaces for students to eat myra alvarado is with the oakland educators association. that's the union representing the teachers. and she says the biggest win for teachers and students is having access to weekly testing. >> that's a huge before used to be at and it was a really guarantee to every site that we were able to get language that will have testing out at all sites. and that's the huge win for us. >> they all students and staff will be provided with weekly covid tests. if there is a limited supply than those tests will be prioritized to those who have been exposed to the virus, the deal still needs to be voted on and approved by the union and the school board. but folks are optimistic that it will pass. so we'll see the city of san francisco. meanwhile, is taking new steps to protect people from eviction. the board of supervisors just passed an ordinance that is a first of its kind in california. kron four's camila barco live in the city. now to explain. good morning, camila. >> good morning, james. this
5:07 am
is a game changer for renters. this legislation gives renters more time to prevent them from being evicted. so basically tenants have 10 days before they can be legally evicted. here's how it works. landlords are going to be required to morning 10 days before beginning the eviction process. and this gives the tenant the opportunity to fix a problem that led up to the eviction in 10 days prior to the covid-19 pandemic. a landlord could begin the eviction process after 3 days. if a renter getting pay rent or for other reasons. but now this legislation gives tense time to resolve any dispute be before landlord turns to addiction and has stayed said this is a first of its kind in california. it's going to help divert disputes between a tenant and landlord. now the author of this legislation, dean preston, he's part of the more supervisor, says it will prevent thousands of evictions. as we've heard, the
5:08 am
pandemic has forced many people to lose their homes and barely make ends meet. he says the law the laws put in place to stop evictions during the pandemic have been successful. and because of that, he says data shows overall evictions in san francisco were cut in half. now, james, the san francisco board of supervisors unanimously passes legislation. this week, but it still needs to be signed by mayor london breed. for now, back to you. >> thank you very much. camila governor newsome and state lawmakers have reached an agreement to revive a law to provide workers with up to 2 weeks of paid sick leave while they recover from covid. now, california's initial supplemental paid sick leave law expired at the end of september last year. this new agreement revives paid sick leave through the end of september of this year. the legislation is likely to be fast tracked to the governor's desk in the coming weeks. it will apply to businesses with at least 26 employees. all
5:09 am
right. the forty-niners begin their first day of practice today for the nfc championship game against the los angeles rams. niners have had the upper hand on their division rivals in recent memory, 6 straight games now that they've kron four's will tran live at levi stadium this morning. where will today? the morning. where will today? the work begin weekend. good morning. >> yes, they will have contact. they took a few days off to rest. i'm sure they were at the facility yesterday looking at game feel now that they needed it because they know each other very well. i mean, last time they were down there, they beat the rams, right? 27. 24. and that last when james could be a good omen 3 times since 1985, right..the team that swept the other opponent twice in the season, right? they play the 3rd time in the playoffs. 3 times that team has gone on to win the 3rd game and then get this another good omen for the
5:10 am
9 news. this is the 8th time division rivals are facing each other in the playoffs. the team that won the second game, right? so the niners won the second game just a few weeks ago. they are 6 in one. so although the signs, if you're looking at anything to make you feel better about the night is going down to los angeles. i just gave you 2 things to think about. not to mention that you probably have or you can get the best coach in the nfl coach kyle shanahan. here he is talking about the opponent, the los angeles. that. >> i mean, every time or in a game where talk about and how quickly all these things can change and how quick the game can get out of hand. go back to our first game this year with detroit and being a 41 to 17 with them in a 58 left and we went by 8 points and they have the ball them or experience you get on that. you start to realize you should never be comfortable should never be comfortable to the game. and that i think it just i think it helps you stay more humble, more grounded and never get too confident until are too until you get the job
5:11 am
done. and that job is never done until you're shaking hands with the game's over. >> so in other words, james, keep your foot on the gas pedal keep going. and that was something that the rams did not do in week 17. they take the foot off the gas and the niners game back from 17 points down to beat the rams and got themselves into the playoffs and they lost that game. we wouldn't be talking about the niners. we would only be talking about where jimmy g possibly could be headed to after the season. now we're talking about what he will do on sunday and what he could possibly do in the super bowl. let us do some housekeeping things here. i got to tell you, coach kyle shanahan will once again speak at 11. 45 then they will practice at one 15. they will practice probably with pads for the next 3 days or so as they get to the rams practice. rest speaking arrest. james, here's another good omen. well, the niners that played
5:12 am
on saturday, right? they play the packers and then the rams play the bucks on sunday. the team that played on saturday going into the nfc championship or the afc championship for that matter, they're almost. in in supple when it comes to those games about. i think the record is 16 1. so all signs to the san francisco. 49. >> the more we dig into the stats, the numbers and the history of the more and more the niners. i don't know. feels like they got history on their side. the data on their side. we'll have to wait and see. i haven't checked it. are the odds makers still pretty much putting this up as a coin toss? >> it's a little bit of the rams i checked yesterday was around 5 and a half. and james, the home team gets about 3 point anyway. so that's about 2 and a half point spread for the rams winning. but i'm sure gets closer and closer. yeah, just have to wait and see. i mean, is las vegas right there? experts there become close to getting the correct score, but
5:13 am
let's face it spread is to get the gamblers in enough. i had to gamble. i'm putting my money on the san francisco forty-niners. you cannot argue 6 straight wins against the division right. i think most of those times vegas had the odds in the rams still won anyway. so there you go. >> will thank you very much. 5.13, is the time. we'll take a break. still ahead on the kron 4 moreing news. >> we have a lot more headlines here for you. coming up, home buyers still leaving the bay area in droves. we're going to tell you the story about a man should say the story about the main reason why they're leaving. also, groups of thieves are targeting local jewelry stores are going to show you what happened during some recent smash and grabs and overseas. president biden is preparing for possible war will have the latest on the brewing conflict between ukraine, russia potentially u.s..

5:45 am
morning. if you look really close, you can see the sales force tower right there. >> you can also see the golden gate baidge, the very top of it. just a couple of lights sitting right over on that side. morning to take a little slower as you do encounter those foggy patches. really just remember what it was like yesterday. and if you're driving through some areas that were clear, then all of a sudden ran into that low visibility. that's what today's looking a lot like to now later on today. once that fog lifts and burn-off, we do have another day providing a whole lot of sunshine. in fact, going to be a beautiful afternoon all over again. we've had a lot of those afternoons lately. multiple weeks and it doesn't look like this is going anywhere. anytime soon. there was a chance of a low pressure area breaking through this high into next week. that could have resulted in a shake-up for us. but it looks like the high pressure ridge is going to win now. and that means this week and next week, your first week of february are now trending, drier and a little bit more mild. certainly nice to step outside in. but as we know in california, we need that rain this time of year. now, as far as we go with
5:46 am
winds today, it is going to generally be a calmer one today than yesterday was was a breezy one for the north bay yesterday. while the rest of us were nice and calm today, all of us are on the calmer side of things. 60's for daytime highs with your at the coast or further inland. the biggest change in temperatures that we have yesterday is a slight cool down for the north bay and a little bit of a warm-up for the south bay that will us in the santa clara valley to near 70 degrees. san jose campbell and santa clara at 67 for your highs, east bay temperatures right around the same as you were low to mid 60's. again, that's where we spent the day yesterday. the north bay will be less windy but also a little less mild sonoma at 62 today while santa rosa still comfortable at 63 tomorrow, right around the same as today, friday, saturday and sunday. keeping that going monday and tuesday of next week, still likely to be edging out into the 60's. this is not going to be the start of february. that's going to be bringing us any chance of rainfall just yet. hopefully we'll kick it into gear. later, though, as for
5:47 am
