very january. like at all or early february as we move forward, we had temperatures today in the mid number sixties. that's how it goes again. tomorrow and really right through the weekend. we're not looking at rain chances anytime soon. of course, you knew that because that's what we've been talking about. for weeks after week, we're well over 10 days. dry will probably go another day week dry certainly maybe a little more than that is our next rain. chances are late january last day or two in january early february. in the meantime, our weather feature which will actually do away with any fog issues. tonight will be this wind and wind advisory for the higher elevations and the hills of the bay area. you're looking at wind gust, potentially from up to 60 miles an hour top of mount town top saying halina 40 to 50 million our above 1000 ft, so we're going to see breezy conditions. if this was two months ago or three months from now, this would be a red flag warning potentially right because of the winds being a fire concern. we'll look at the model. this
5:22 pm
takes us through tonight and it starts us tomorrow morning. seven a.m. and when you look at the numbers are helpful, but the colors will give you an idea where the areas that will be impacted. so here's tomorrow. our friday friday morning and then you'll see those colors really kind of light up as we get into friday, mid morning and then into the evening hours on friday at that, so that's especially looked right about there somewhere around what 23 o'clock. that's some pretty significant wind with gusts. that would be the height of this wind event. so what does it mean for us? view me. i think there's potential for some power outages for sure, you know, not not concerned. super a lot with fire. you always are. but power outages certainly a possibility because of just the wind and the ability to knock trees down things like that. the grounds still pretty wet. so the highest elevations will have the strongest winds down around 2000 ft. above 40 or 50 and down in the valleys of the low lying areas, you might see gusts up to 30 35 miles an hour. something like that so that's the big
5:23 pm
weather story dry, dry dry as the other big weather story, and we're going to stay that way for a while. like i said, these were the highs from today. the highs tomorrow will be somewhere there's that 67. in san jose, and just because, he says, just because santa ros is 66 probably you go. east of santa rose out there towards, uh, you got treasury income valley and some of those higher little areas where you might, you might find temperatures in the upper sixties. so a lot of upper sixties and some of these spots today that just started official spot so when we come back, we're going to look specifically at obviously friday, saturday and sunday because it's your weekend and then we'll show you the long range model and i'll give you an idea what the chances are for that next rank because it's a ways off but again. we're well above average for rainfall. so fortunate. so i'll see you back here. we'll talk more about your weather few minutes. thanks bill with his plans dashed in congress how president biden plans to switch things up to get

bad it's brought governor newsom the town reporter, phil shuman joins us live from lincoln heights where law enforcement is stepping up and clean up is underway. phil well, andre, this is a growing problem theft from railcars and governor newsom was here not just as help with the cleanup, which, as you can see, a lot of work needs to be done in that area, but also to announce increased state resources to fight this problem. governor newsom on the union pacific railroad tracks another carefully organized media opportunity to show him as a hands on leader as he cleaned up what's left behind by thieves breaking into trains while trying to make sure he doesn't have to come back again. my frustration with this in particular is the images look like a third world country. the governor pledged more resources towards organized retail theft task force and a new effort focused just on this problem in los angeles ups got their special agents. we've got local
5:49 pm
police departments we've got ups has their own enforcement wings, so it's a it's a deep, broad stroke. collaborative you know, we needed effective solution to handle this, and we're reaching out to both federal state county and city law enforcement agencies. union pacific with its own police say they've made arrests, but few results in serious charges and no bail puts people back on the street. the d a will only say they charge when they have evidence, and it's tough to catch people in the act. this portion of the track hidden well below street level. union pacific has already done things on its own better fencing . trespass detection system drones for patrol police law enforcement. technology infrastructure solutions. and criminal justice. all of that combined is what's going to help us. move forward on this issue. this is not a new problem. what is new is the 160% increase in theft from 20 to 21. all the
5:50 pm
attention. it's now getting we saw memories that never were. because gifts never arrived. we saw experiences that never took place. because we saw ornaments and led lights and christmas trees. they never arrived. back live by the side of the tracks where we are, andre, you can clearly see there's no fencing access is wide open. that's part of the problem. a lot of this happens, though, in more hidden parts of the tracks, particularly in the early hours late at night, early hours of the morning. um you need pacific has been very critical of los angeles county district attorney george gascon. of course, you remember well from the bay area , saying he just chooses to not file felony charges and because of the nobel policy, even a felony charges are filed. then the bad guys are right back out on the street to commit more of these crimes again, the district attorney not making himself available to reporters, his
5:51 pm
office simply saying, and when we have the evidence we filed the chargers governor newsom, careful not to criticize the d a. by name, of course, goes way back with gas going, endorsed him in his race for district attorney here in los angeles county. live in l a. i'm phil shuman. andre familiar story that we've heard here as well, phil. thank you so much for that live report. already we had a little bit of fog this morning. certainly we might still a little bit more tonight because of this setup. but what happens in the early morning hours of the winter shift there already shifting, but they're going to shift more. and so the fog in the morning by the time we get to your morning commute, i think you'll be fine. it's gonna get blown out of there. that fog we saw today that was dense at times. the winds are such especially by the morning hours. 567 a. m. that that fog should be blown out, and that's going to set us up with the warm friday and saturday and the potential for you know, mid sixties upper sixties so more of the same in terms of the weather pattern, which has been dry warm
5:52 pm
or mild. if you will just kind of depends on your perspective, but it's to me i called warm this time of year when you hit 67 in san jose, and like i said before, just because san jose had 67. that's not to say, you know you're gonna morgan hill gilroy, you're down to into san benito county. you're easily finding temperatures in the seventies low seventies. so as we go into tomorrow, it's going to look a lot like this again. these are the highs from today highs tomorrow will be quite similar. and then as we head terror, uh, fridays are saturday and sunday more of the same days are getting longer couple minutes a day generally, and you can see the beautiful atmosphere that has many clouds. so the sunset not as robust as they have been because we've been handling those high clouds around, but now we just have a beautiful clear sky out there. to be a beautiful day on your friday. we wake up mostly clear for all of us, and it stays that way all day, presenting us with temperatures easily into the mid sixties, maybe even a couple of seventies and again. tons of atmospheric river going up and out and away from us far away
5:53 pm
from us, and that's how it's going to stay for another week or so. so the next five days when you see it, you're going to see dry conditions and no rain in the forecast just a few high clouds. and then back to the valley fog, probably as we head into the weekend, but by friday morning saturday, but the saturday morning to value fogs, not a thing, but i think maybe on sunday monday we might start to see a return it and that's it. i mean, we're splitting hairs because there's not a lot going on in terms of the weather. 61 fairfield right now, that's pretty warm for this time of year for this time at night, two degrees warmer and fairfield five degrees warmer napa than it was last night. at this time, you can tell there's not a lot of wind out there now because you look at the glass on the estuary. you can see that smooth kind of reflectiveness and that tells you right away. there's no wind. it bumps up and get a little wind that surface gets textured and then you don't see the glass. so forecast for tomorrow about 48 degrees with some patchy fog in san francisco, but it's gone by the time most of you get driving around tomorrow and then friday afternoon san francisco you're at 64 65 degrees, so another
5:54 pm
beautiful day. 62 livermore, 67 morgen hills 68 in santa cruz would be hard to get to 70 degrees tomorrow in a lot of locations, the five day forecast as you look at your weekend, which is here already, technically, friday, is kind of a weekend day. and if you look at the conditions, we have little breezy conditions again on saturday, think sunday we might see a little bit of fog, which turned sunday night into monday morning, and then we just got these kind of wow. mild and dry conditions that last really through the last part of january. looks like we might see some rain early february. and we've been enjoying some amazing sunsets. in the meantime, bill, thank you. eminem's candy has a new look as it seeks to adopt a more modern, more inclusive image to its branding. candymaker mars. wrigley unveiled the makeovers to its characters today and among the changes the green eminem has swapped out her go go boots for sneakers, the brown one is now supporting lower, more practical heels as she describes herself as being not bossy, just the boss. the candy maker says the

below the surface of the pacific ocean lies a groundbreaking marine discovery. at pristine coral reefs seemingly undisturbed off the coast of tahiti, but generally core ifs are found up to 25 m in tropical systems, so it's quite impressive to find such system in very good state of health. at that sort of death. the nearly two mile stretch of reef was first uncovered back in november by research divers working with the united nations. it is believed to be the largest at its depth. with some coral spanning more than six ft in diameter, all in affected by climate change or human activities. i think what's important is also raises the issue of you know how coral reefs become more resilient. to climate change because climate change is the main aspects that impacting coral risk the rail reef scientists believe began growing about 25 years ago and is too deep to be destroyed by bleaching or overfishing, which puts a strain on other
