while. >> reporter: legal experts say it's likely the state supreme court and the ninth circuit courts are trying to lay the legal ground work for any appeal in the future by either side to the u.s. supreme court. in san francisco, jana katsuyama, ktvu channel 2 news. california's seven member supreme court has a new make up since it last tackled the last issue. sawauye is the new chief justice. ktvu.com has continuing coverage of today's decision and background on this landmark legal case. just look for the gay marriage tab. these are the final hours of san francisco democrat's nancy pelosi term as speaker of the house. tomorrow republicans will take over the leadership position as the new congress convenes. today pelosi was asked if she

one of the things the system needs to form is light winds. the winds are showing up at 5 miles per hour. so it is just light wind out there. perfect for fog formation. the high pressure ridge is set up. the storms are north of here. the jet stream is going up into canada. so we're clear and easy. the weather from last week and the week before, added to your high pressure back. that means fog forming for the inland bay valleys. a dense fog advisory tonight and probably the next couple of nights from redding to bakersfield. we are waiting for the fog to reform. here we are tonight. we already have fog up toward livermore and sacramento. this is the fog forecast model. i want you to watch how the easterly winds blow that fog into the delta and out into the bay. here's tomorrow morning's forecast at 4:00 a.m. here we are at about 7:00 a.m. it's not picking up the santa rosa fog but there'll be fog out here as well: you can bet out here in this area you're going to have some very dense fog. it clears up tomorrow morning, and tomorrow night works it's
way up the valley. that pattern will repeat itself tomorrow. plenty of fog throughout the inland bay valley. your morning commute will be impacted. visibilities you know can get out there. i wouldn't be surprised if the eastern parts of contra costa or alameda county or certainly the next morning will get a fog advisory. you don't need a fog advisory. you just have low visibility that's what we're going to see in many locations. temperatures will be in the 50s. there'll be patchy fog there as well. fog like this is indicative of a stable weather pattern. it's not going to rain. when you have fog it's tough to get rain in this type of environment. so we're looking for dry conditions for the first time in a while. but that fog will be the weather headline right into the bay area weekend: weekend right now looks dry. >> thank you. >> thank you, bill. first it was arkansas now hundredsover dead birds have been found in louisiana and in both cases the cause is a mystery. about 500 of the birds are in a town near baton rouge.
mark joins us once again with the big changes happening with the oakland raiders. >> what a night, what a day in the nfl and to put it bluntly two years ago the raiders were a laughing stock. no respectable big name in the country would everyone consider accepting a big coaching job in oakland. so davis gave it to a virtual unknown, tom cable. and he's plain speak, over achieving every man coach has now been fired. tom cable informed earlier this eve that the five year option
on his contract would not be exercised. thanks for everyone tom, hit the door. and davis is not making the move because he thought it would be popular. the fact is that davis loves a high octane office. jackson started to get bites from other nfl teams rather than risk losing him, davis now makes him the seventh head coach in oakland in the last 12 years. meanwhile from 49er headquarters it is news only because it is now official for more than a week now, everyone has pretty much known that balchy is the team's new general manager. tonight after their wink, wink nationwide search had been completed. the 49ers put their stamp on
