mrs. linda marie macdonald is your realtime captioner. we are back. good morning, everyone. it is friday, believe it or not, january 31, i'm frank mallicoat. >> and i'm michelle griego. time now is 6:32. we had to be off air for just a bit because we were dealing with some technical difficulties. so hopefully we have all of the glitches worked out. and we are good to go. >> yeah. we have a half hour to have some fun here. let's kick it over to lawrence to find out about your weekend forecast. >> feels more like friday the 13th, doesn't it? folks, around the bay area today, scattered showers beginning to taper off a bit. our hi-def doppler radar has been tracking rainfall overnight but you can see that starts to slight away eastward into the central valley and our
skies beginning to part just a bit. so with that in mine, it looks like we'll see drying conditions over the bay looking good mostly clear skies there right now. the temperatures running a little cooler today. 42 san jose, 46 san jose, 44 in livermore and 47 degrees in san francisco. as we head toward the afternoon, we have some clearing skies. but the winds likely to kick up along the coastline. plan on some mid-50s out toward the beaches. you will see 50s and low 60s inside the bay and valleys and another chance of showers over the weekend. we'll have more on that in a moment. right now, liza, there's a big accident out there. we have breaking news to report involving caltrain. an accident just occurred in the -- near the redwood city station involving a train possibly hitting a pedestrian. at this hour, we do know that train number 309 is being held in palo alto. the train that was involved in the accident is train number 305. so for the time being, no
northbound service on caltrain at this time. this will definitely impact service for the rest of the morning commute. as we get more information, we'll pass it on to you. right now, no delays for the bart system, the ferries, again, delays on northbound caltrain heading out of the south bay towards the peninsula. now, we'll move on to the rest of the friday commute where we had an accident on the bay bridge. good news is that the accident was cleared up fairly quickly but you can see the backups right here still delayed at the toll plaza from beyond the 880 overcrossing. that's your "kcbs traffic." kpix 5's kiet do is at the scene of a fire that gutted a santa clara home. kiet, tell us the latest. >> reporter: the fire investigators are making their approach into the house. it looks like it's cooled off enough so they can enter the building safely but they still have the ladder truck standing by. every now and then we see a puff of smoke as it flares up and they douse it. but for now, you just saw them walk into the building right now. the fire started around 1 a.m.
on the 5000 block of avenita de lago a couple of blocks away from the new 49er stadium. no one was awake at the time and it was fully engulfed by the time the firefighters got there. so nobody saw any of the smoke or flames. the smoke alarm woke up one of the people inside. that person in turn then woke up the other three adults and they all escaped on their own. one woman had minor burns to the lower part of her body. there was so much heat that neighbors say there wasn't much they could do. they took rocks and threw them on the windows trying to wake the people up. but again, those people made it out okay. this house just went up for sale on the market a short time ago. investigators will look into that as a factor but right now, no reason to suspect this was suspicious. live in santa clara, kiet do, kpix 5. thousands across the bay area are waking up to celebrate the lunar new year. kpix 5's anne makovec is live in san francisco where chinatown is ready for the festivities.
>> reporter: "gung hay fat choy"! ! it is now the year of the horse that means it's the year to follow your intuition and pursue your dreams. sounds good. around that that starts with celebrating some ancient traditions. celebrating new year's eve last night is 106-year-old wing dur and four generations of his family. he came to america when he was 12. his family is among the many we found crowding into chinatown restaurants. >> so new year eve they cook food. >> new year's day they just play and enjoy festival. >> reporter: the dinner includes traditions such as fish with heads attached symbolizing wholeness in life, oranges symbolizing wealth. >> i pick and give everyone in the family oranges with leaves and to give great fortune. >> reporter: and red packets of cash. >> this is called lucky money lycee in chinese. >> as a kid it was great because of all the money you
get. but growing up, yeah, it's a but more trying to get back to the culture growing up. >> you see here all these fireworks, all the bad spirits go away. and hopefully everything will come true what you wish for. >> reporter: the firecrackers were causing a stir on the police scanners overnight because there was so much noise at midnight in chinatown. everything is quiet today. back to you guys. >> anne, we're expecting a big parade in san francisco. right? >> reporter: ah, yes. the chinese new year parade is going to go on two weeks from tomorrow. and that is also going to include a festival here in chinatown. so a very big celebration. >> sounds like fun. thank you, anne makovec.
our newest sierra snowpack survey is proof once again we have a big drought problem. it's at a record low at only 12% of normal. the 8" of snow they had at boreal made it better for skiers but didn't put a dent in the drought. >> these first storms are just being absorbed into the dry ground. >> i don't know if you have seen folsom lake but it looks sad now. it's a big little pond. and if we don't get any runoff soon we'll be hurting for summertime. >> california's top water official says we need to save every drop we can. ski resorts continue to make their own snow to keep the runs covered. happening today, first lady michelle obama will wrapping up her visit here to san francisco. but first she will join nancy pelosi for a women's lunch at the fairmont. and security is tight. yesterday a bomb-sniffing dog was part of a security sweep at a fancy san francisco restaurant. a huge motorcade pulled up near catania restaurant but mrs. obama was nowhere in sight. during his state of the union
address this week, the president called attention to the first lady for setting a good example. and now many are calling attention to the first lady's dress that night. that's because she broke tradition and went with a non- american designer. the forest green dress was made by a paris-based designer. a san francisco internet cafe is going to close and the owner promises not to open a similar business in the city for another 5 years. the city says net stop in the excelsior had become a magnet for criminals and illegal gambling. first year was open police responded to more than 200 calls at net stop. >> there were definitely people there at 2 a.m. yelling, getting in fights, like i can't tell you how many times i have seen police out here. >> san francisco city attorney's office says the agreement to leave is not an admission of guilt. the cafe now has 60 days to leave. the oakland boy accused of killing his sister last week is scheduled in court on monday. the 14-year-old will be prosecuted as a juvenile. police say he shot and killed his 17-year-old sister in their apartment. relatives say it was because she had bleached his clothes. the teen surrendered finally to
oakland police wednesday after being on the run for a week. new details about a san rafael teen convicted of stealing celebrity chef guy fieri's lamborghini. 19-year-old max wade was sentenced to life in prison last week for trying to kill a rival and for the car theft. we are now learning wade also planned a major heist at the shreve and company jewelry store in san francisco. he had names and photographs of employees details about alarms, cameras and also the floor plan. happening today, a tattoo removal program returns to san mateo county for the first time in two years. the program was halted in 2012 because the laser menussed to remove the tatoos -- machine used to remove the tatoos broke down. they had a fundraiser and they bought another one. it serves ex-gang members and victims of domestic abuse. >> stay with us. we'll be right back. ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
its new earnings report incs word of a stock split. here now is kcbs radio's financial reporter jason br. let's earnings r google stock bears watching this morning. its new earning report includes word of a stock split. kcbs radio's financial reporter jason brooks reports. >> reporter: good morning. a tough day for the stock market so far. but at least some good news it coming from google. had another very strong quarter. its revenue up 17% to $16.9 billion. did miss on profits estimates, however. but the company also announcing a long-awaited stock split creating a new class of shares, c shares, which there will be no voting powers in those shares. that will take place on april 2. the company's stock is up about 2% on that. also, social gamer zynga the maker of "farmville" is struggling for two years announcing it's buying an english mobile gamer called natural motion for $527 million. that company has been successful in selling in-app
purchases and games like csr racing in the app store for the iphone. zynga otherwise had a brutal quarter. but on the purchase of natural motion, its shares are up around 25%. a piece of bad news, the company will be laying off over 300 employees here in san francisco. the economy out this morning, consumer spending in december up .4% a little weaker than the month before but that came in spite of the paychecks being flat from the month before. and overall for the years, a gain of consumer spending by 2.8%. let's check the big board. it's not pretty. the dow down 205. nasdaq down 37. s&p lower by 19. frank and michelle, back to you. >> all right, jason brooks from kcbs news, thank you. it's friday and the search is on now for our own roberta gonzales all part of our weekly feature "where's roberta?." highlighting some unique places around the bay area. >> yes. she has been giving clues all morning long, right? but it's time for the big
reveal. so roberta, tell us, where are you? >> reporter: good morning from vista point one of the most magnificent views in the entire world. but no, this is not our final destination. that spot was just too far to travel this morning. in fact, it was earlier this week when we drove over the golden gate bridge through the mountains to a redwood forest near the ocean to our final installment of "where's roberta?" let's unlock the secret and see where in the bay area we are today. welcome to point reyes lighthouse. 62 miles north of san francisco. while it is a hike to get there, it is a true treasure, along our california coast. >> the point reyes lighthouse was built back in 1870. this became part of the national parks system in 1962 when president kennedy signed the legislation to create point reyes national seashore. >> reporter: the rugged rocks from land to sea caused many a shipwreck. so point reyes lighthouse became literally a lifesaver.
>> the lighthouse was certainly brought here to reduce the number of shipwrecks that had occurred up to that point in time. and even after it was built, there were still about 60 more shipwrecks that had occurred. this is the foggiest and windiest point on the west coast. >> reporter: if you are thinking about visiting the historic lighthouse, they're not kidding here, it's a workout. >> there is a coal chute that ran down now what's 308 stairs. when the wooden stairs were here before concrete, there were even more. so all night long, that coal was being shoveled by the lightkeeper. >> reporter: what's your favorite part of the lighthouse, the lens itself was created by augustyn who created all the lighthouse lenses. this is a first order lens the largest of six sizes that he created. it's a piece of art since 1870. >> reporter: unpredictable, the changing weather. predictable, a lifetime cherished history lesson and one day at the point reyes
lighthouse. >> reporter: from the point reyes lighthouse to the golden gate bridge, we live in one of the most dynamic areas on earth! i want you to go online at kpix.com and tell me where to go next week. where to visit. we have so many interesting and beautiful places. and i want to share all that with you with "where's roberta?" now frank and michelle, it's only about 62 miles as far as the lighthouse is concerned from san francisco. but it took us nearly 3 hours because of the windy roads. but it was enjoyable. >> but what a view. >> it's beautiful. >> all right, roberta, thank you. okay. let's get a check of traffic now on this friday. >> we're looking at a busy start as we continue to monitor the sways with caltrain. in fact, chopper 5 has launched now on its way to redwood city where caltrain number 305 reportedly hit a pedestrian. they have shut down service in redwood city southbound caltrain being turned around in san carlos. northbound trains are being turned around in menlo park.
major delays expected for caltrain. if you normally take caltrain to get into work this morning, just be prepared for those delays. and the redwood city station of caltrain has been shut down. they are not running any trains through there at this hour. bart is on time. no problems reported for the ferries or the altamont commuter express. it was "friday light" until 45 minutes ago at the bay bridge toll plaza. it's now backed up from beyond the 880 overcrossing with the metering lights on. the earlier accident we had inside the tunnel has been cleared. and over at the san mateo bridge, westbound traffic looks good with just a minor delay at midspan. the altamont pass is going to be a tough ride. westbound 580 has improved so it's no longer delayed from 205, just some slow traffic as you move out of livermore heading towards pleasanton. that's a look at "kcbs traffic." hears lawrence. skies are clearing out now. we have some showers again overnight. looks like things really begin to settle down and looks like another dry friday outside. out the door we go, our hi-def doppler radar scanning the
skies right now and it's showing you nice and clear. looks like that's the way it's going to stay now as we go throughout the day as we'll see a lot of sunshine into the afternoon. and some dry weather as we step into the weekend. at least the first part. and then there's a chance of a few showers at least along the coastline as we head in toward sunday. much-needed rain in the bay area yesterday and overnight, then looks like most of that beginning to head east. it looks like high pressure going to build in. that means a little breezy in the afternoon today and cooling in spots especially along the coastline. no delays being reported now at sfo. none expected through the day. if you are traveling possibly heading to the super bowl we have a storm there. but not today. just mostly cloudy skies 39 degrees in new york. 72 degrees in houston. snow in chicago at 22. and 40 degrees and mostly cloudy in boston. computer models showing you your skies staying mostly clear throughout the day now just a couple of passing clouds and the temperatures are going to be cool especially out near the coastline. those numbers generally in the
50s. maybe own mid-50s toward the coastline. looks like some 60s in some of the interior valleys. next couple of days, we are going to dry things out slight chance of showers though as we head in toward sunday along the coastline then more sunshine and warmer weather toward the middle of next week. >> all right, lawrence. thank you. well, san francisco mayor ed lee had quite a week. he joined the first lady michelle obama during the state of the union address on tuesday night. and this morning, we are very lucky because he is our special guest. good morning. >> good morning. good morning, frank and michelle. >> happy chinese new year. >> yes. happy lunar new year. so how was it? i mean, what an experience. >> you know, it was an honor to represent the residents of san francisco and it's just sitting there in that box with first lady obama meeting the other 23 wonderful americans. i got sandwiched between a four star admiral of the navy and the fire chief of moore, oakland. boy, did we have a great
conversation. >> i -- moore, oklahoma. boy, did we have a great conversation. >> what was it like with your wife being there with you. >> being at the white house live in person it was a tremendous honor. its one of those moments where your heart kind of flurries because you know this is one of the highest points where you get to really hear in person and see and when you hear that message where the announcer says, speaker, the president of the united states, that's just incredible. >> yeah. i bet. >> it truly is. the big thing we're dealing with, with the bay area now is of course the drought. were there any conversations had about that? >> oh, absolutely. in fact, a week before we had the counsel of mayors spent four hours at the white house and we brought up -- we were the lead kind of effort to talk about water infrastructure and wastewater infrastructure. that's our challenge west of the rockies and we want to bring that to the attention of the white house and make that part of job creation and infrastructure. >> i know, mayor, you're a big
backer of the new warriors arena that's going to be built on the bay. front page in the "chronicle" today that the infrastructure fixing those peers is going to double up to $180 million. -- piers is going to double up to $180 million. your thoughts on that? >> this is our effort to revitalize the piers. it's very expensive to fix the piers. it's incredible how much money it costs. but the warriors are still solid saying they are going do do this. even though the expense is higher for them, it won't be higher for the public. >> did you bring anything home from the white house? >> i got three for you staff, unused cocktail napkins from the white house! [ laughter ] >> awesome. you have to frame that. that's so great. >> that is great stuff. >> all right. well, mayor, thank you so much for joining us this morning and taking the time out. >> happy lunar new year to you we'll be right back. ,,,,
