to what we can expect in the coming days. this holiday week when it comes to rain, snow and the cold. chief meteorologist bill martin here now, with the latest on what's in the forecast , bill? yes you know what's interesting here jules is it's going to be a series of storms, so he's pulses are going to come around this law that's sitting offshore. you saw the clouds from that low the last couple of days really, even more so today. but in the evening hours tonight and tomorrow that low will get a little closer and start spinning showers in our direction. none of this is heavy stuff. none of it is flooding, and it doesn't appear to be the place that will be the strongest and the most noticeable is going to be up in the west slope. this year, nevada they're going to get feet and feet and feet of snow five. ft. easy and i've seen some estimates, say eight ft. maybe 10 ft. by the time we get. to sunday monday of next week. this thing's going to keep going, but for us, it's his. these pulses are going to go through the low , so as you go outside, you can see it's kind of a little stormy vibe to it right now. it'll it'll be no noticeable by
6:01 pm
tomorrow night at this time tomorrow night. this time we'll have the radar lit up and we'll be showing you the roads that will be slow and just the wet on the roadways. so here's the deal. i kind of just there's the low, right? and then here, the pulses that are kind of swinging through and they're not timed out, but they're going to be coming all the way from back here, so as they move into this low, they're going to spin up. this is going to go on over the course of four or five days. if even if you look at the satellite image, none of it looks like they don't look like big storms. do they and there really are there. more or less just pulses are going to come through and deliver showers. some rain some moderate, some light some sun and we're going to see a little bit everything tomorrow starts off like today cloudy. with the valley fog, but then in the afternoon, the showers will be in late afternoon into the early evening. i think that afternoon commute will have a few showers on it, and then that begins, this cycle will be back a little bit. i'll see you with the full weather. alright see you then, bill. thank you. there is, of course, already a lot of snow up in the sierra after last week's
6:02 pm
storm, and with a week of snow ahead, a lot of people are heading up the hill looking to hit the slopes, but it is not going to be an easy ride all that snow coming down, maybe good for skiers. but it's not great for driving. the chp wants to remind anyone who is driving up on interstate 80 or highway 50 to be prepared because road conditions can change just within a matter of minutes. here's some simple advice. it may seem a bit obvious, but worth repeating. these are some tips from caltrans always check on road conditions ahead of time and make sure you have chains with you also, make sure your car is in top condition, including checking your breaks, windshield wipers and your tires , and it's a good idea to take along water, food and warm blankets. just in case you experienced some lengthy delays. and also have a full tank of gas when you head out the door, and of course, as always, with conditions like this, it is important to slow down, and those who are flying are not just dealing with possible whether delays but also big crowds and the ever changing covid situation. ktvu james

6:04 pm
than last year. last year, we did not do anything. we stayed home. we didn't see anybody, but this year yes, this year. we're trying to see a few more people still not as much as we used to. i am vaccinators. it was like a requirement for holidays this year area. oakland's travel numbers have been on the rise since october, airport officials said in the past statement. based on the increase in passenger throughput seen at oakland over the thanksgiving holiday and continued growth in leisure travel demand. we expect a strong finish for 2021 through the rest of the holiday season. people flying this morning, say macron is on their minds, but they think they've done enough to guarantee safe travels. we tested actually all of us tested at home last night, and my brother and his whole family tested at home to your good, yeah. yeah we can. we took every precaution. we can do it. the california department of public health now asking any out of state travelers entering california to take a covid-19 tests within five days of their
6:05 pm
arrival and any international flyer coming into the u. s. must show proof of a negative covid-19 tests within 24 hours of their flight. reporting from oakland. i'm james torres, ktvu fox two news. with the l macron variant spreading around the world and the busy holiday travel season. now upon us, there is growing concern about how to keep travelers safe and how to stop the spread of the virus. now there are calls for a ban to keep the unvaccinated from flying. one of the leaders pushing for that is bay area congressman eric swalwell, and he joins us now live. congressman swalwell. you flew back to the bay area over the weekend and tweeted on a flight now to the bay area, and it is 100% batty that the unvaccinated are allowed to fly. it is unsafe in the cabin and we are transporting this virus. requiring the vaccine to fly is the least we can do to stop the spread, so congressman. all passengers are required to wear a mask. why did you feel unsafe?
6:06 pm
well, i'm frustrated julie because i have three unvaccinated children three and diapers who can't get the vaccine just yet, and it's the unvaccinated adults who can get the vaccine who are creating these variants and keeping us in this position, and just sitting on the planet just occurred to me. i got 200 plus people taking their masks off to eat and drink transporting this virus all over the world. shouldn't we at least take precautions to ensure that everyone on the plane is vaccinated? this vaccine is available. you can't go 20 ft without finding someone who's offering it, so there's really no excuse not to take it. and if you don't want to take it. fine that's your choice. i just don't think it should be transported it all over the country and contributing to new variants. just really quickly. i want to ask a lot of people who are vaccinated and who have been boosted are also coming down with the virus. what would you say to that? that the more vaccinated americans we have. you will see a lesser chance of
6:07 pm
future mutations. it's the unvaccinated who keep this virus circulating around and yes, if you are vaccinated and you. get the virus again. you will not go to the hospital because your symptoms, so it's also a drain on hospital resources that the unvaccinated with the vaccine available are cashing covid and then going to the hospital and then pushing out people who need other procedures. so the best thing we can do is to just get america vaccinated. and here's my prediction drug. i think for many people who are just following fox news or following facebook to take their vaccine guidance. if we require vaccines to fly, you're going to see us go from being a country that 60% vaccinated up to 80% vaccinated . they're going to get the vaccine to take their vacation to see their family members. i think that would be a huge incentive for them. okay, so what would it take to happen? what would have to happen to make this ban a reality? and if it did happen? how long do you think such a ban on the unvaccinated from flying would be necessary. the president or
6:08 pm
the faa could do it without an act of congress. they've already put in place. of course, the mask requirement and so we're asking that you either have to show. a vaccine or a recent negative test, so it could happen immediately, and i would say that we should keep it in place. you know, until we reach much higher vaccination rate among those who are able to get vaccinated in this country, but again i'm just so frustrated. i am not fit to be a pre k for at home zoom teacher, and neither is anyone else who's watching this program? right now. our kids need to be in schools are restaurants need to be open. america needs to be open right now, and we risk all of that being shut down because of the selfish unvaccinated in this country. congressman don't have a lot of time. just want to ask you really quickly before we let you go. there is so much frustration out there. a lot of people say if you push for such a ban to prevent the unvaccinated from air travel, it really doesn't make much sense unless you also extend that
6:09 pm
bantu trains, busses and other forms of mass transit like bart, what would you say to them? i agree. i think public transportation period and again. this is not about. equity anyone can get the vaccine. it's free. so if you have something that's free that is available. you can't walk as i said 10 ft. without someone offering it to you. and you're choosing not to take it then. i'm sorry. you shouldn't be able to fly. you shouldn't be able to get on a bus. you shouldn't be able to risk the public health of everyone else. and he shouldn't make every parent in your neighborhood after teach their kids and not be able to go to work. that's just selfish, and that's why i think we should put these requirements in place for public health and to increase. the vaccination numbers. okay, well, we will let that be the last word. we're going to hear much more. president biden expecting to talk about the spread of the omicron variant tomorrow night when he addresses the nation, congressman eric swalwell. we appreciate your time tonight. thank you. my pleasure. thank you. merry christmas to all. thank you. you too. and or macron has quickly become the most dominant coronavirus variant here in the
