l a as the faithful sent off the forty-niners to sow cow for sunday's nfc championship this will be the 3rd time the niners and rams have squared off the season with the forty-niners coming out victorious in the first 2 games. as far as preparations for such a familiar foe, it definitely can be tricky. both teams know each other and are well aware of what worked and didn't work in the previous matchups. that being said it's a delicate balance as far as what to keep doing and what adjustments to bank quarterback jimmy garoppolo answer that question. here's what he had to say. i think there's a fine line. you know, the things that you did well in the past, you know, you assume that team. >> they are going to guess we'll fix those things. and, you know, get be ready for the next time. next time you but at the same time, like you're saying there's some things that you don't even want try again because they didn't work or maybe was bad timing of the call, whatever it is. there's a bunch of variables, but you definitely it. take both into account. >> also, both coaches very familiar with each other to we should mention the rams got in

8:31 am
60's going on. so you know where your shades? we do have this intrusion of kind of some. >> shredded stratus a little bit. it's the little blow off that we're getting from that low down south there you can see it. yes, it is carrying some rain showers. it looks like here. this is marching east. so it's going to part of our area first. and then finally clear things even down south. we're again, aiming for the mid 60's going on today again, acknowledging some of the morning cloud cover here, clearing out by the afternoon. it was a pretty clear up in the north bay. so temperatures have been able to fall nicely through the 30's. we can see they're getting a little recovery now. 36 livermore 30 for 7 for a concord, a course on the bay side east or west of the hills, though, of course, along the east bay shoreline were in the mid 40's climate controlled by the bay. and 43 down to san jose for today. 62 expected san francisco oakland at 63. 66. meanwhile, for san jose. meanwhile, across the wider bay, we'll see again those mid 60's going on, particularly inland with all that nice heating coming up in a bit.
8:32 am
we'll take a look at that extended forecast for you and the 4 zone. 2 noel, thanks, dave. >> a visit to san francisco by an nba superstar has a board supervisor up in arms. brooklyn nets player kyrie irving. it's set to take the court against the warriors in a huge matchup at chase center today, irving is not allowed to play home games in brooklyn because he's not vaccinated and rules in new york prevent his participation and as kron four's dan thorn reports, some san francisco leaders are questioning if you can't play their, why is he allowed to play here? basketball fans are required to show proof of vaccination in order to cheer on the golden state warriors at chase center. but on saturday, those rules will not apply when brooklyn nets star kyrie irving takes the court in san francisco. the unvaccinated point guard is allowed to play as long as he tests negative for covid-19. just a basic level. we can't play his owner. would why
8:33 am
would he be able play here? san francisco supervisor matt haney says allowing irving to play sends the wrong message. san francisco's vaccination mandates have applied to practically everyone from public workers to small businesses and city residents. we've got a set of standards. >> we're asking everyone to follow them. you know where you are. >> and it creates huge challenges when you have these carve outs that feel like they're giving favoritism to folks because of their wealth or access or privilege. the san francisco department of public health has also required warriors players to be vaccinated while visiting players are only strongly urged to be vaccinated. irving's eligibility to play becomes even more complicated considering his unvaccinated status has kept him from playing home games in new york. >> under san francisco's local health order visiting players or performers who are unvaccinated must follow these rules. proof of a negative antigen test within one day or 2 days for a pcr test before entering the venue wearing a
8:34 am

9:34 am
season during week 18 the forty-niners walked away with an overtime win of 27 to 24. i'm just saying those are the stats. i'm not here predicting what the outcome of the game is, noel. but i mean, the chances it looked pretty good for the forty-niners. now the question is, will they make another super bowl appearance? of course, we're going to find that out tomorrow. but in the meantime, right now, united airlines is going to surprise the people here with a pep rally. we're still waiting for that to happen. >> and of course, we'll have all the highlights kron-on for now. back to you. alright, camila if we don't catch you again in this show, like you said, we will have you again at 10 o'clock over on kron on our streaming service. if you don't have that app just yet, you should download in your app store. it is free camila. thank you for that live report. if you have any pictures or videos of you and your family and your niners gear, go ahead and send them to us. >> kron 4 dot com. san francisco residents who have received the johnson and johnson vaccine and the supplemental dose can now get a 3rd shot. if they'd like the san francisco department of
