the weather and traffic. it is going to be a beautiful weekend. looks like a absolutely gorgeous. we had that fog earlier this week. none of that this morning. just beautiful, clear skies. >> get out there. enjoy it. and just to do with the jacket, ready to go. fog is not a thing this morning. just a little bit of high cirrus clouds pushing in across the bay area, 30's and 40's for our current temperatures. fremont, you're at 38, dublin. our chilliest spot at 33 degrees. in the meantime, san francisco bodega bay pacifica and half moon bay right along the coastline by far most mild areas. all in the 50's. more in your forecast is still to come. reyna harvey upstairs with us this morning. you actually sit front of that sunrise. so, yeah, i've been able to catch it all morning long pretty gorgeous up here. >> we are seeing a couple accidents out the air, one in richmond, another one a little further down in hayward, 5.80, eastbound west of central avenue. you've got an accident. so we are seeing delays on the eastbound side. but you also just have a lot
of traffic on the westbound side as well. so you're seeing delays on both sides. san pablo avenue might be good alternate if you're trying to get around that down in hayward south on a northwest wind 10 avenue, you've got an accident. so you are starting to see some delays here as you're traveling heading into the city, though, once you reach the maze at about 14 minutes for your drive to that fremont street exit. so no major delays or issues there. san mateo bridge heading across towards the peninsula about a 14 minute drive for you. and let's get a look at the richmond center fell commute as you are heading out of richmond. 11 minutes. back to you. thank you. ray 8, 0, one and a big story. teachers and parents in the oakland school district are going to find out today which schools could close this year. >> the possible closures would impact thousands of students and families across oakland kron four's camila barco is live this morning with the latest. and i guess like when are they and what are they going to do? camilla? >> yeah, that's a question we're just waiting from oakland un fied school district to get that list of
the schools that are possibly going to be closing at the end of this school year. as i said, we have not received that yet, but we're expecting to get that list later today. however, one school board member went to social media and listed the schools that school board members are considering to close out in a lengthy letter to parents and staff, the district claims that it has struggled financially over the past few years. district leaders say that part of the reason is due to less students in the classroom. and the district is also arguing that they're investing in smaller schools, then larger ones, and that's preventing them from serving students and paying their teachers and staff of better salary. now, mike hutchinson, the director for district 5, says that oakland unified school district is actually not in a financial crisis. he went to facebook post, the schools that are possibly set to close at the end of the school year. take a look at your screen here. they are, according to hand, the school
district is considering closing more than 10 schools. and that includes few elementary schools like prescott and brookfield. this also includes west lake middle school and high schools like red stale. now, hutchison says there's also the possibility that some schools could merge like highland and rice. and there's also the chance of closing down more schools next year. and we spoke to the school board member this morning. he's also questioning how quickly this is all moving along. >> i've seen a lot of things but i've never seen something like this where literally giving the community one to 2 weeks notice for these permanent decisions. and let me just be clear. the schools that are cited on this list for possible closure are some of our traditional neighborhood schools that have served generations of our community. and today's drop this bomb in the community on top of the trauma, many people are really suffering going on 2 years in a pandemic. it's just really unconscionable.
>> now on monday at 06:00pm hutchison and the other school board members are going to meet to talk about the list of schools and the ones that are possibly going to close. and then the board is actually scheduled to vote on those recommendations on february 8 at 06:00pm. they will then say whether they're going to close one or 2 schools, maybe all of them or maybe none at all. so just have to wait and see that for now. daryn, back to you. all right of the kids, right? the disruptions just keep coming. >> for kids who like routine? you know, i can relate, right? can you imagine you've got the covid learning and then the classrooms in the home and now this camila. yeah, i think it's just one more thing added to everything that the students and teachers have had to deal with in the past few years. and hutchison just mentioned that the pandemic has made many things worsen. adding. >> and schools closing. it's
more for teachers and parents. and this is just going to be moore added on to them. so maybe hutchison is trying to close down excuse me trying to end the school closures and we'll just have to see if you can make that happen. yeah. all right. keep us posted. thank you. camila. >> what about the teachers in west contra costa and that school district they could authorize a strike. we'll see what happens. the united teachers of richmond union is demanding the district come to an agreement on their covid safety and they're demanding weekly covid testing and high quality masks for all the staff and students. >> earlier this week, the union said they would negotiate with the district and then they threatened to strike if an agreement wasn't reached by today. so are they striking or did they reach a deal? a crowd for has reached out and we're working to get an answer to that. all we know is today was the day. 8, 0, 5, and in the south bay, 2 cases of the new omicron subvariant stealth have been confirmed in santa clara county. but doctors say that we shouldn't
be too worried. an infectious disease expert at stanford says that doctors have always expected to see many different mutations of covid just like the flu. but it, you know, the flu evolves every year. data shows this new subvariant is not as contagious as omicron and from what the doctors are seeing so far, they say masking and the current vaccines are still working against this variant. >> at this point, we haven't seen anything a surprising yet. it is still called the variant of interest by the world health organization. and so far we know that the vaccines are still pretty against even this current variants. we know that a booster makes that protection even better. >> some experts say that there is a possibility that the stealth subvariant of omicron could re if you had covid already like the regular of a crowd and you got over it and then you think will wait. can i get this one out? they say
may be. so they're recommending, you know, that you take precautions. masks are soon going to able, however, to come off for those who fully fully vaccinated in some parts of san francisco, the city's just released a new order. health officials say they're going to ease restrictions for indoor settings of some kind starting february. 1st, if you are going into an office setting or a gym, you will be allowed to not wear a mask if you're vaccinated. however, masks will still be required for gatherings of 500 people or more and starting february 1st, if you don't have the covid vaccine, you are going to be allowed to dine and work out us our air. sorry and work out indoors so you can do those things even if you're not vaccinated is long show you have a negative covid test. so san francisco kind of changing the way they deal with it starting in february,
representatives of contra costa and alameda counties say they don't right now have any plans to loosen their indoor mask requirements in the north bay. the sonoma county health officer there is clarifying a recent health order for indoor events. earlier the in the month, the county limited indoor public events to 50 people. and there was some confusion, i guess when you say will 50, what about like staff? there's a big staff that puts this event together. that kind of thing. >> it's 50 spectators. it doesn't include the staffing, the media, the players, the performers of an event, the health order also limits outdoor gatherings to 100 people where social distancing. >> can be accommodated. the updated health order is supposed to expire at midnight on february 10th. >> excitement is building for the nfc championship game against the niners and the rams on sunday. we've been covering it all week long every day heading up to the big game in l a a lot of
niners fans are going to be there. they're traveling. they got tickets if they're not already. there. kron four's will. tran is live at sfo to see how fans are feeling ahead of the big game high will. >> good morning area. this is the getaway weekend. the beginning of it for niners fans because we expect so fy stadium in los angeles to be a sea of red if they're not taking off this morning, they will take off tonight tomorrow because we do know this is the most important game. >> for the san francisco, so they win another game on sunday and then get into. >> the super bowl, of course. but first, things first. that niners. they've on the rams for the last 3 years winning 6 consecutive games and this will be game 7. they hope to do that. they have history on their side because since the year 2000 that is happened 7 times and it could happen many more times as the record is 8 straight time. so yes is hard
but very doable. and they will rpbe fully equipped because the niners are coming down there with a full staff, all of their injured players they use this week to either hit each other lightly just to knock off some of the roster, just dressed all together. so when they hit the field, jimmy g and the game will be at full strength. we try to take on the niners. they will not be alone because we are hearing that 45% of fans in northern california as far as the niners fans of the ticket sales that is coming from northern california and then the other 20% of this ticket sales on 3rd parties, party sites coming from southern california altogether. that adds up. if you're not good with math, that adds up to 2 out of 3 seats at so fi stadium will be filled by niners fans. but it won't be cheap according to step out. >> this is certainly in demand
game to say the very least. and it's trending to be the number one on super bowl nfl playoff game in our history. so currently beginning there around $600 with the average ticket price sold just over $1100. to put that in perspective, the packers and niners nfc championship game just 2 years ago here in our backyard. and levis was only 600, $70. so as the states have gone up this year and it's the 3rd match up for the night is rams prices have tripled since the week? 17 d. >> well, get this. the niners and the rams. they faced each other before in the nfc championship. 31 years ago, joe montana numbers versus jim everett. so they beat the rams at that particular time. i can tell you that right now las vegas has this game pretty much even. and that is not a good sign for the rams because they are the home team. they have the better record. and yet it looks like the niners. if you go to many locations
and you can see the sports experts. >> they are predicting that the niners will win and get this. they are also predicting the kansas city chiefs to win and that sets up a rematch in the super bowl. but first things first. they have a game this sunday and it will be in this afternoon or excuse me on sunday afternoon. all trends point to the niners going to the super bowl and for those fans who are going to la this weekend, that's a good sign because they'll be right back there in 2 weeks as the super bowl is at so-fi stadium. >> back maybe that is a sign. it's all coming together now will. >> i think it gets and you actually went there, meaning you actually committed. you're like i think it's going to happen. i think they're going to do it. are you still feeling good still? yeah. >> i you know, i think all trends point the niners winning because when you beat a team 6 straight times, that means you're not only beating them on the field, you beating them in their head. yeah. so they know that they have their numbers and this and bottom
line is the niners. they just match up well with the ground and pound with kittle. they just have too many stars versus the rams. but with the cabbie out is if you know sports, regardless of which team you root for, you know, nothing is done until like what this say the other day until you shake hands on the field after the game. and i like that. you just brought up kennel because, you know, >> like that, i'm not a fan of watching football, but i like the individual characters kill is my favorite. that guy. he's like mystical and cool. and i something. who's your favorite leon? the niners just curious personally. >> my favorite player on the niners. yes, it probably would be deebo samuel miami. kids loved the vote. and the club of one for what he does. and i'm just mad that the cowboys didn't draft him. he's that good. and i think he will be the difference on sunday. the man is just an all-star. he can catch. you can run. he can block. you could do it all.
his knee is fine and they will be ready to go against the rams. buckle up you're not shows my kept that. >> thank you. will. >> all right. we'll see will and a little bit. he's providing us live coverage all throughout the morning. 8.13, right now. what's this guy doing? caught on camera trying to steal this van in the east bay. we'll show you what foiled him and what they think he might be connected to around town. plus, after the break, the president pledges to nominate a black woman to fill the vacancy on the supreme court will have reaction from a local reaction from a local political science expert. oh, wow, barbara corcoran! good morning. sorry, we don't need any business help now. we're gigillionaires.

after that, just the way it's going, we are going to see that high pressure ridge staying with us for some time. we've generally been seeing an offshore wind lately been breezy for the north bay mountains and at the coast on occasion. but nothing exceptionally windy. and unlike last weekend, which was very windy to start, should be a lot calmer to start this one 60's for your daytime highs almost across the board. some low to mid 60's near the coastline and for a few of us in the south bay today, we'll be flirting with the 70 degree mark even closer than yesterday with san jose and campbell, each at 68 degrees east bay temperatures low to mid 60's for you. gorgeous day. get out there. enjoy it. sunshine and one of the most mild days left in this forecast because after today we do start to see temperatures sliding just a little bit day by day tomorrow will still be relatively mild. that will be sunday. but we do fall back into the low 60's on average into early next week. february first is on tuesday in the new month. kicks off on and right now reyna. all right, john, thanks for that.

clerks. so i i think we will have a problem with somebody getting up to speed. >> but, you know, she always reserves the right to be wrong. donna says that she never rules out surprises. she also says judicial nominees tend to unify parties on both sides of the aisle in a way that legislation does not. members of the california democratic party are threatening to pull the party's endorsement from lawmakers who reject a plan to establish a single payer health care system in california. this is the warning ahead of an important election year and just days before that health care bill faces a key vote in the assembly next week. state lawmakers are set to vote monday on the health care plan. also known as cal care. cal care would eliminate private health insurance and create a state run health care system in california. the vote on it comes as the party's pre endorsement process is going to be happening february 5th.

are and the work this week. i mean, it's pretty straightforward as you see jimmy g there. this team has formed an identity. they know exactly what they have to do to win. they also know their opponent inside and out now we've spoken at nauseum this week on the relationship between the 2 head coaches. we know sean mcvay kyle shanahan. they used to be co-workers in our nation's capital. now their rivals and it's been a pretty one-sided rivalry on shanny side. so much so that someone asked mcveigh if kyle was in his head something kyle shanahan, they really think was very appropriate. a question like that is. >> just giving sean and myself way too much credit. i'm or coaches. thank watch what's going on on that field and some of the players out there and the people that are competing and i think that it's about sean. i i mean, i
