6:33 am
to be mild out there this afternoon. you want to layer up. 67 degrees for the south bay later today, 65 on the east shore and 66 in san francisco. so your highs come in between about 2:00 and 3:00. i just want to show you your temperature trend for today. look at this, you're going to double -- double that number in fahrenheit between 6:00 a.m. and noon in the north bay. so definitely want to wear the layers for today. and then temperatures dropped rapidly. but the good news is we're going o get a little bit of rain looking over here toward 580, it looks like a nice drive through the dublin area. here's my concern. that's west 580. let's show it on the map. we're looking at the arrow moving from right to left.
6:34 am
that's the commute direction from dublin out of livermore. as well as west 84 coming out of pleasanton and liver more as well. there's a. now i'm seeing things compressed to 580 and the brunol area. most things are clear again but that is a concern for the tri-valley. we're looking at the southbound direction of 880 slowing toward hayward, typical pattern there. we'll show you the san mateo bridge. there was an incident reported right around the toll plaza. i've seen the traffic flowing smoothly off of 880. there's the high rise coming to the peninsula side. back to your maps, we're showing

6:39 am
6:40 am
perhaps the most notable moment of mario cuomo's political career came in 1984 at the democratic national convention in san francisco where he delivered the keynote speech. >> a new congress convenes tomorrow. some are wondering just how much lawmakers can get done. both houses will be controlled by republicans. this will be the largest house majority in 86 years. one hot button issue is sure to be the president's immigration orders and republicans say approving the key stone pipeline will be top priority. >> it is ground never covered before. governor brown will make california history today. the governor will take the oath of office for an historic fourth

term. >> and this afternoon kamala harris will be sworn in as attorney general. she will announce the creation of a new bureau focusing on crimes against children. >> and libby schaaf will take over as oakland as mayor. >> and in san jose, sam liccardo will officially be sworn in as mayor. >> coming up, pro football could once again touch down in southern california. the nfl owner ready to build a brand new stadium in los angeles. >> no hot water or gas. can you imagine that? for nearly a week. how the holidays kept some people in san jose in the cold. >> and an armed man shot and killed right outside of a san francisco police station. why police say they had no choice but to fire. >> and we're back with 15
6:42 am
minutes of nonstop news, traffic and weather after the break.
6:43 am
6:44 am
it is something that many of us take for granted, hot water. but on this cold morning, dozens of people in a san jose apartment complex will be taking cold showers. they've been without hot water for almost a week. >> all this because of a downed tree they've been suffering, kris. >> reporter: the tree was taken away pretty quickly, water service was restored pretty quickly and even the repair on the gas line was done pretty quickly. the problem is that because it was a holiday, there want anyone to inspect that work before pg&e
6:45 am
can turn it back on. the trench is wide open here along 280, right across the freeway from san jose city college. this is where a tree came down last tuesday damaging that gasline and that water line. residents got a letter from their management company saying they would have to wait for gas until city inspectors could come by and look at the work. that's why for the last six days, today being the seventh, those folks who lef here have been showerering at friends houses or at the gym. without gas the water is very cold and there is no heat. >> it's really upsetting because we're like in the blind right now. we're pretty much sitting waiting, trying to find a place to shower. >> that man says that for nearly a week he's been boiling water on the electric stove and taking it upstairs for his three kids to watch up. hopefully they don't go back to school until tomorrow as many
6:46 am
kids in san jose do. there were inspectors out working on friday. however, according to the recording i was able to get, they were doing scheduled inspections. whether or not this was one of those scheduled inspections or why it couldn't have been fit in on that schedule for friday remains to be seen. i do have calls out to the city and pg&e this morning. hopefully we'll get some answers later on today. in san jose, kris sanchez, "today in the bay." >> they're both needed. let's take a live look at downtown san jose. the sun coming up in the distant horizon as folks are making their way to work. how will they be greeted in this postholiday atmosphere? >> with a smile if they're waking up with us, each and every day, no matter how bitter the cold is or how bad the air quality is, we have a little bit
6:47 am
of both for today. if you don't mind cold temperatures, you can handle the way it is. we might get close to 80 degrees mid week in portions of the south bay as well. for this morning, i want to draw your attention to the temperatures because they've actually climbed. we're now at 38 degrees in san jose getting a little more wind at this point. when we get that mixing, your temperatures tend to come up. these are bearable numbers with the exception of the north bay. as per usual, very chilly conditions out there. i want to show you where we usually average this time of year and where we're headed as we head through the next couple days. the average is 58 degrees on the peninsula. today 66 degrees. tomorrow 70 degrees, closer to room temperature by wednesday. that's why we could be rivaling temperature records by the mid
6:48 am
part of the week. as we get to your weekend and the end of the week, temperatures drop off. keep in mind there is a slight chance for showers. doesn't look like everything is going to get the rain but i'll show you that on futurecast in a moment. right around 65 degrees, fog free in san francisco but you will see the haze. same for the east shore and looking good in the tri-valley as well. some really cool temperatures out there this morning. mid section of the week holds the warmest days. if you want to get outdoors. we should see better air quality tuesday and wednesday. then thursday into friday we get the rain, the best chance right now as per usual looks like the north bay and immediate coast. right now i'm bringing in that shower chance for friday morning. we're going to keep watching this for you. still watching the 16th through the 17th for that storm track to return and i'm going continue to because we need that rain. let's find out how we're doing on your drive, you want a smooth
6:49 am
ride. the only one who can give it to you it mike inouye! >> the commute really kicking in now, north 101, there's that silhouette for 680, 280. north 101 is one of the slowest spots, slowing up toward the airport where the earlier incident looks like it's cleared from the afrmt at 87. 280 to get in, same thing for 85, bogging down right around saratoga. there's your south bay commute that we typically see. also, exceptionally slow 680, a burst of traffic and your typical morning build for 580 there were three early incidents, they look mostly cleared from the roadway but we still have one lane blocked by a box truck here. and the dumbarton bridge, south bay 880 shows a little buildout
6:50 am
at union city. typical pattern. let's look at the san mateo bridge. we really over the last 15 minutes have seen a lot of traffic on the flat section, starting to bog down. the earlier incident at the toll plaza still on the chp books. i'm going to say they're over to the shoulders. no real problems from palo alto or the peninsula or san from from 101. >> the bay bridge has the drive developing and a bay bridge toll plaza, a lot of slowing there because the metering lights are on. back to you. >> thanks a lot are mike. 6:50 this morning, an armed man dead shot and killed by san

6:52 am
asking them what kind of weapons and ammunition they carry and if they'd been involved in shootings before. the chief says police safety is top of mind. >> i know a lot of people are very concerned with how things are, with how it's going nationally as far as officer safety. we are as aware of it as anybody. officers are looking out for one another all the time. but again, we have a job to do. >> reporter: now, the sergeants were not injured. they are paid administrative leave, that's standard procedure. the chief is set to hold a town hall meeting as he has done with other officer involved shootings to get feedback from the community where he may show pictures of or show the real fake gun that the man was allegedly carrying. witnesses told nbc bay area that heard about four gunshot. this area was shut down for hours for the investigation, which is being conducted by the homicide unit here at stpd,

internal affairs swes the d.a.'s office. >> thank you very much, steph. >> 6:52 right now. there are hundreds of travelers back in the bay area after being stuck on a flight from abu dhabi to san francisco for more than 24 hours. their 12-hour delay added to the 16-hour flight time, a total of a 28-hour ordeal. the wait included no food and no information about the cause of the actual delay. it was only after seven hours of growing pressure from passengers the flight crew finally started handing out sandwiches. one passenger we spoke with said passengers had to get information from the internet just to find out why their flight was delayed. >> information started to get out the entire airport was actually closed. that's when people started to get frustrated because it became clear to us when we were told you're leaving within 30 minutes, europe leaving within
6:54 am
45 minutes that that was sort of just a lie. >> reporter: now the airline eventual sent out a tweet saying bad fog delayed flights in abu dhabi, the cabin was switched out and foot restocked before the airline took off. they could be facing steep fines as a result of the tarmac delay. >> the waiting list for public housing will be out for five days beginning next tuesday. right now a thousand people are on that list. but they hope to add another 2,500 people. this is the first time the list will be opened in four years. officials say lack of funds kept rooms from being fixed up but now extra money from the state and federal government will make more units available. >> in milpitas, some residents are trying to prevent a nearby land fill from getting even larger. the land fill is right off of dixon landing road and interstate 880.
6:55 am
the decision is expected later this month. hundreds of residents have launched a web site called milpitas' odor problem, asking officials not to allow the project. >> every day we are smelling the stinking odor. we cannot open our windows when we want. it's so bad, i'm thinking about leaving. >> they have requested a revised permit to extend the height and width of the land fill. previously officials have said they're working to control odors coming from that landfill. >> all new this morning, a major player in the nfl is opening up the play book to bring pro football back to l.a. st. louis rams owner and developer stan cronke are

6:57 am
