4:46 am
west coast as we remain in our winters break. well, the rest of the country sees the bitter cold in the snow today will be breezy at times for just a few spots. nothing exceptionally windy, though, just an offshore wind that will continue to aid in temperatures being as warm as they will be even all the way out to the coastline. areas like half moon bay, up to 66 degrees today, burlingame at 64 and temperatures further south on the peninsula. even warmer than that, saying carlos palo alto and mountain view each at 66 in campbell in san jose in the south bay at 68 degrees today. even warmer than the past 2 days have been mid 60's pretty solidly for the east bay. so it may be a very cold start. a look at this mild weather you have this afternoon, you'll be able to take off those jackets and just enjoy with some t shirts and jeans later on. if you want to get outside, just get that nice break from winter. feel in full force now tomorrow, just as nice as today. just a few clouds and just as mild sunday, we cool things down just by a few

neither time. all right. the la area, by the way, preparing to host the big game, february 13th. and that requires a lot of security and many members of the la county sheriff's department and the la police department are currently out sick or being quarantined because of covid. we've got alex carper, a low explaining how the department is addressing the problem. >> nearly 2500 los angeles police department and los angeles county sheriff's department personnel are either home sick or quarantining due to the coronavirus. lapd says it's looking into how staffing shortages will impact deployment numbers as the city near super bowl week. we just don't have the manpower to keep our regular citizens safe. now the magic people coming into the city to the super bowl. we can't keep them cases have been surging. lapd says the biggest issue is the
4:50 am
delay in covid test results. it's taking sometimes up to 10 days to get those results back. and when they're positive, that officer has been on the field, contacting the public, working with other officers in the station and the black and white. >> and now those officers are getting sick with with covid to ensure public safety. some plans for the lapd include eliminating days off, cutting vacation short and potentially asking nearby police agencies to send over officers to assist. that's a strategy deployed during the la riots in the northrfdge earthquake. it's not just a major incident that's happening. this likely a natural disaster or civil unrest. this is covid it's not a job. we have so many people out right now. >> all right. well, let's talk basketball. the warriors are on a four-game winning streak with their latest victory over the minnesota timberwolves last night. the warriors were down at the half but got hot in the 3rd with steph curry ending up scoring 29 points. >> wiggins, andrew wiggins, chipping in 19 points as well as klay thompson scored. 23
4:51 am

4:52 am
the position he mans on our team, which is number one perimeter defender night in and night out and a key cog in our offense. >> well, the all-star game is still just a few weeks away. that will be on february. 20th this where see them play on that team. >> we'll take a break at 4.52. for minute.
