8:01 am
we are under freeze warnings in purple in northern and lake counties and frost advisories and that lighter blue. all the way until 09:00am this morning marine sonoma and napa counties all affected by these frost advisories and looking at temperatures pretty easy to see why livermore in palo alto at 39 right now dublin near 34 even colder for the north bay with petaluma at 37 santa rosa you have seen temperatures begun to rise. you were at 28 degrees now sitting at 35 wall saint still sitting at freezing at 32 degrees currently or rural areas even colder than that with some of these areas still hanging out in the upper 20's, so it is a frigid start to the morning. but at least traffic seems to be cooperating somewhat right now. we do never traffic is okay, but part is it's recovering so that's good the law for 2 like that happens for over 2 bart reporting
8:02 am
delays are up to 20 minutes, so they had some earlier equipment issues and that's causing delays or residual delays here so only if you take the berryessa lining you plan on heading out toward the daily city direction you will experience delays up to 20 minutes for bart this morning once again those earlier equipment issues slowing folks down a little bit here at the bay bridge toll plaza we are fine traffic looks pretty good a huge improvement here for 80 compared to the last hour or so. >>a minor wait leading up to the pay gates, no big problems into san francisco. we'll check more bridges a slow downs coming up james darya thanks. a clear message. >>you chose hope. and unity. decency. >>a woman in this office i will not be the last. >>make progress we have to stop treating opponents as our enemies. they are not our
8:03 am
enemies their marriage, i'm a proud democrat. i will govern as an american president. those who didn't vote for me as those who did. >>us president-elect joe biden talking about unity across america, you saw kamala harris there a moment ago the first woman of color to be elected as vice president. >>both candidates making history this morning and while they are focused on the new administration and tackling a bunch of the issues shortly we'll hear from them. president trump and his legal team. they are fighting this yeah they're preparing to take this all the way through the courts, some republicans of course have responded differently depending some have congratulated joe biden others staying relatively silent, we've got michael shore with the story. >>president elect joe biden accepted the result of this week's election in wilmington delaware saturday night and so
8:04 am
to have republican leaders here in the u.s. and leaders across the globe. former president george w bush issued a statement sunday saying i just talked to the president elect joe biden and thanked him for the patriotic message. he delivered last night. >>and former gop presidential nominee utah senator mitt romney shared his thoughts on those in his party who are thus far unwilling to accept the result means and it's important for us to recognize that the world is watching and i think. >>by the way for all of us whether we're in the senate or the homes or or whether the president you think of the line from hamilton history has its eyes on you. >>but the first lady of the united states melania trump echoed her husband sentiments on twitter saying the american people deserve fair elections every legal not illegal votes should be counted. we must protect our democracy with complete transparency and some gop rank and file are still not satisfied. it just won't stand up in court and also the fact that you can stop
8:05 am
challenging the night of the election they stopped and you just can't do that with jay miles coleman of the university of virginia center for politics says that this isn't surprising. >>we could have probably predicted this result months ago. that we would have a lot of republicans who are refusing to accept the result. >>and he predicts that it will take someone republican leadership to end may be prudent for some republican leaders like mitch trying to send those signals as well that may be. >>that might quell things to cement steps. >>still a litany of world leaders joined the chorus of congratulations to biden from canadian prime minister justin trudeau who tweeted congratulations and underscored the unique relationship shared by canada and the u.s. to uk prime minister boris johnson, i president biden president biden very much on his on his
8:06 am
victory and of course i congratulate. >>kamala being the female vice president says she will become in the history of the united states for now the waiting continues. >>meantime president trump and his supporters are still insisting. the election was stolen and they claim without evidence there's widespread voter fraud most legal experts say that the president's lawsuits are destined to fail. >>these legal challenges that trump is bringing are basically meritless and even if they had merit which the vast majority of them do not. they would result in the overturning of the election but biden is winning by 10's of thousands of votes in all of the relevant states is a legal challenges are going to have an effect. >>well vice president elect kamala harris made history of course becoming the first woman and woman of color to hold that office. she is a bay area native is we know born in berkeley growing up in oakland and over the weekend people gathered outside her childhood
8:07 am
home to write some messages. the sidewalk celebrating her rise to that office in factor in her victory speech saturday night she said that while she is the first woman to hold that office she certainly will not be the last and we heard from one local family about how important it was for harris to ascend to the white house. >>i just think about growing up you know i didn't really get see women in powerful roles and so impacted my self esteem >>yeah, i've seen makes it pretty scary to think about my daughters and their generation growing up with. such powerful role model and that the powerful place so what do you think about. >>pamela harris in the white house. >>i think he is. >>she'll need to think this made to be there. yeah. >>so now the question is what happens to her senate seat. well california is one of 36 states where if a senate seat opens up its the governor that points to that next senator will be now in this case, the interim senator will serve out
8:08 am
the rest of kamala harris's seat until it comes up for reelection which would be in 2022. here on your screen you see some of the names that have been floated there's karen bass from southern california here we have congresswoman or congressman adam schiff. there's mayor eric garcetti and of course secretary of state alex padilla. by the way if dia is chosen. he'd become the first latino senator in california history. >>time now is 8 '08 and breaking news this morning a breakthrough in the search for a coronavirus vaccine. the maker pfizer says they have studies that show their vaccine is 90% effective yeah which would be great news. we've also learned the 3 doctors with ties to ucsf have been named. >>president elect joe biden's coronavirus task force which we should hear more about about a half hour when the president elect speaks to the nation. the kron 4 sarah stinson is live for us now with what we know so far good morning sara. >>good morning president elect joe biden he picked a lot of people for this coronavirus task force including 3 doctors

8:10 am
successful with the get beating the virus we caught up with a doctor here ucsf who knows. his colleagues, let's hear about why he thinks this is a huge step. >>but one of the things i am so excited about with biden coming into office is he will choose competent people and he will listen to them and that's not been the experience of the last 4 years which is partly why we're in the mess that we're in. >>and we have huge developments this morning that have been made on a vaccine drug maker pfizer says the vaccine they are working on maybe 90% effective at preventing covid-19. the fda has made it clear that any vaccine must be at least 50% effective so that's already suppressing that biden has responded to the great news congratulating the men and women who produced this breakthrough. >>43,000 volunteers got either 2 doses of the vaccine or a placebo. >>pfizer says so far no participants in the study have become severely ill. the

bay area homeowners, learn how you can eliminate monthly mortgage payments and improve your cashflow. look, this isn't my first rodeo and let me tell you something, i wouldn't be here if i thought reverse mortgages took advantage of any american senior, or worse, that it was some way to take your home. it's just a loan designed for older homeowners, and, it's helped over a million americans. a reverse mortgage loan isn't some kind of trick to take your home. it's a loan, like any other.

8:16 am
getting outside this morning. please layer up you're going to want that because the jackets you've got a few of us have actually fallen into the 20's this morning for your temperatures, a nice bright view across the bay alcatraz looks good right there in the distance, 30's and 40's for current temperatures right on the bay, it's or north bay areas that have been the coldest for sure and you can see petaluma sitting at 37 right now santa rosa at a cool 35. santa rosa, you're down to 28 degrees within the past hour. so that is a a bump up in temperatures from where you have been pretty recently here still under these frost advisories and expecting them to remain in effect through 09:00am this morning former in sonoma and napa counties also freeze warnings for northern solano and then lake county to notice well as for future cast today tomorrow wednesday, all looking dry then comes thursday a chance of showers returns to the bay area you can see that here by friday more widespread of rainfall looking likely so we're certainly not done with the rain just yet we have more of
8:17 am
that ahead of us and that is very welcome news because we've seen increasing drought conditions after what has been a dry fall until this past weekend. temperatures later today will rise into the 50's and low 60's that's what we're going to stay in this forecast ahead of us with low 60's remaining all the way through friday to start the weekend as for the weekend itself daytime highs will try to climb closer to the 70's, not quite getting there though fall has set in and not wanted to leave. robin. the traffic is picking up in some spots so the morning commute is starting to wind down out there but if you're hopping on barred, do expect residual delays up to 20 minutes they had some earlier equipment issues that impact at the berryessa line. so if that's part of your commute. >>do expect delays on the various a line to daly city once again delays up to 20 minutes because of wells earlier equipment problems, no specifics here at the bay bridge looks good right before the drive into san francisco, it's delay free no problem so this part of your commute is over 14 minutes off to fremont street 92 still a little busy
8:18 am
it was the first bridge to start stacking up this morning, it's still crowded, but it's not bad, so 13 minutes to the peninsula, i'll step out of the way you see some heavy traffic south 6 ad approaching the highway 4 split right there at the pacheco conquered border, new accident just popping up there and on the east shore you're recovering from a crash which is at the upper east shore freeway, it's slow and little stretches sell 22 minutes now from crockett down to the maze back to you. >>they're just like steph curry. >>history unfold, same way that you did watching tv with joe biden that the bay area zone kamala harris celebrating winning the white house staff immediately sent harris, a signed jersey. the new one
8:19 am
that finally says her hometown's name on it and hopefully the warriors will make powell a proud next season. i think the vice president and first gentleman will still ride bart to the games like the old days. the nationals have already invited joe biden to throw out the first pitch on opening day. the little league shortstop tried his arm out when he was vice president in 2009. his phillies went all the way that year but they did not wind up repeating as world series champs. and the dodgers are still paying for their world series win when they allowed a massless covid positive justin turner to celebrate with the team on the field and since then. now we know that 9 people in the dodgers organization have tested positive. for covid so there are health repercussions, even though mlb never did punish them for brazenly ignoring the coronavirus isolation rules. the raiders didn't get away
8:20 am
with breaking the covid rules right after becoming the first team to lose a draft pick. they did get away with a win in la with the one 2nd left in the game. the chargers made what looked like the game winning touchdown. but the catch didn't hold and neither did the call the touchdown has reversed the raiders win and isaiah johnson and coach gruden same as can you know he's huge, you know our biggest cortisol my mom make this play or it is going to >>you know i do whatever could to make a play for the team initially initially he was so tall that i could get my hands on the ball initially caught it but coming down a park or a kit out. >>then we could you know possibly want again thank goodness for isaiah johnson is like. like you said you could yet to give him credit we gave him a game ball in. we gave brandon parker game ball further for their work today and on as we were short handed. >>and you see that go goods
8:21 am
not messing around anymore keeping that mask up. we have not seen the final game of jeopardy for alex trebek's his final show is going to air on christmas day. >>welcome america's favorite answering question game jeopardy. >>he continued taping shows until 10 days before dying of cancer yesterday because he truly loved what he did. and he felt that he could beat as he told viewers in march of 2019 shortly after he was diagnosed. >>week i was diagnosed with stage 4 pancreatic cancer. and wnth the love and support of my family and friends and with the help of your prayers also i plan to beat the low survival rate statistics for this disease. >>and finally at 80 years old he didn't end up beating it but 2 years, he spent on camera still hosting the show

8:24 am
8:25 am
>>and we are back time now is a 25. here we are taking a
8:26 am
quick look at images from downtown san francisco. and of course the big worry for a lot of businesses with see winter season coming around the weather getting colder it's going to be harder and harder to do the outdoor eating which has so far been the lifeline for a lot of these restaurants can they afford to continue operations when the weather gets blustery if they have the money a lot of money invested in outdoor. lamps heaters to try and keep people as comfortable as possible a lot of folks that we spoke with say they despite those efforts do plan on scaling back on eating outside during the winter months, but they will try to at least support local restaurants as best they can. definitely do take to places i and just to be done at home. >>you know just security purposes and probably doing a lot of. ordering from home, i mean i i love the restaurants around my neighborhood and i'd hate to see him gone. >>yeah at this point the city hasn't released any updated guidelines for dining out in the winter. other than offer ventilation which is required

8:30 am
biden to speak and we'll take that as soon as it happens in the meantime. >>let's talk about the weather. and there's quite a bit to talk about too because we had some pretty crazy weather not unexpected by the way because john called it when we visited him on friday before we maybe it was a list because i was like what okay, the hail that was a get snow in syria, which yeah and he said we would get rain here in parts of bay area which we did that's what i saw, but yeah it did i miss that i didn't say the word kill but what i say it was the possibility of an isolated that just isn't given with that. but yeah the hail definitely surprised a lot of people know that that was something that you don't usually see in november for sure looking outside this morning something we do see in november and we are getting plenty of this morning is the cold temperatures you see the golden gate bridge out in the distance right there it's free of any fog or cloud cover. >>and that is one of the reasons temperatures have the opportunity to get so much
8:31 am
colder this morning than we even were this weekend, dublin and livermore petaluma santa rosa, san anselmo and cloverdale are all down in the 30's still now santa rosa you are in the upper 20's earlier this morning, so temperatures actually have improved a bit for some of our areas as for those purple areas on the map those are freeze warnings in northern solano county as well as lake county and then in the lighter blue that is a frost advisory or first of the season for marine sonoma and napa counties now working our way through future cast here we do have dry days ahead of us which is good news that does change again though into thursday and friday. so there's your heads up guys we do have more rainfall ahead of us just not these next couple of days which is nice, especially for your travel on roadways because this morning robin you are some pretty good travel from this areas, nice improvement so far looking good. no major issues in the one hot spot. we have. >>it's got a good let's head over the san mateo bridge are going to check in on 92.

8:33 am
berkeley are welcoming students back in person, yeah we've got facemasks required there's no question about that other protocols will be places. well fact will tran has been. >>out there for us this morning at one of the 3 schools that are reopening and will the mask is on so that must mean people are showing up. >>mask is required social distance is required they will be checked in before they head into the classrooms to make sure that they are covid free and that's going to happen every day the kids are back inside the classrooms. they didn't think this day would be here here we are and then the goal for the entire school district in a hybrid form is january 13th we're talking 3 schools, elementary schools in berkeley. rosa parks, jefferson and malcolm x i'm at jefferson at this particular time. so is trish mcdermott with the berkeley unified school district. a lot of people have their fears if you could talk to parents out

there thinking about sending their kids back to school. what are you doing to make sure everybody's safe staff and students. >>so here in berkeley, we start our day with an app it's a screening where we asked both our staff and our students if they have any symptoms that are covid symptoms if they've been in contact with anyone or if they've tested positive and then on a secondary step as students and staff check in we also have a table. here we have one of our district nurses and we're asking the same questions and taking temperature checks. those are people who actually didn't fill out the app so it moves very quickly, but we're very careful to ask the important questions before anyone comes on campus must be pretty difficult that mentioned school kids no touching no. >>fighting just keeping social distance. >>important is that kids are coming back to get some support during their academic time. but also the whole social experience of school to see their friends to be recess to play and play that's something that's really hard
8:35 am
