8:47 am
one of the actors, he is god for me. and i really admire him. but i wouldn't do it. i don't know. i mean, i don't feel like -- it's just a very personal -- i don't -- i wouldn't like to meet a criminal to have -- i mean, i'm sure that el chapo was more than a criminal. >> now, penn says the interview was planned by mexican actress kate del castillo, who was working with guzman about a project for his life. investigators want to question her and sean penn. the question now is, are they going to be in trouble with the law because of this interview, which was conducted while he was on the run. he was an escaped prisoner. >> wow. this is huge. >> we will hear more. we will stay on this.
8:48 am
>> all right. pam, thank you. time is 8:47. let's check traffic now. sal, you are watching the east shore and everything else? >> yeah, that's right. the east shore freeway. getting a little better. a 38-minute time. and you'll see the traffic is especially slow in berkeley. when you get to the bay bridge toll plaza it's better. there was a stalled truck there earlier. they removed that. traffic is backing up for a 10 to 15-minute delay. not all that bad getting into san francisco. if you are driving in oakland northbound 880 traffic is going to be slow from about san leandro all the way up to just north of high street and it clears up for the drive north. 8:48. let's go to steve in the weather center. thank you, sir. a lot of cloud cover. not much else. a few reports of light rain, drizzle. really, i don't think much more than a .03 or .04. that's not everybody. just a few.
8:49 am
some fog around. temperatures 40s and 50s. weak little system, but there is a better one on the way and that will be here on, looks like, late tuesday, more likely into wednesday. the pattern continues here and it does look more favorable for rain as we head towards wednesday. again friday into saturday. this is a weak system. but the one on wednesday will have much more going for it. a lot of cloud cover here. keeps the temperatures on the cool side. a lot of 50s here. upper 50s for some. light rain. overall, cloudy to mostly cloudy. partly sunny later on. looking ahead head after wednesday looks like another couple systems want to pay a visit. thursday looking dry. some rain on friday. more likely coming in on the weekend. best opportunity would be saturday evening. that could change between now and then. that seems to be the early timeline. there is a lot coming across the pacific. looks like january will stay very active. just not very active with this system over us right now. again there is not a lot of low level clouds. high level clouds. 40s and 50s on the temps.
8:50 am
chill in the morning air. can you see the cloud cover just racing right across. we'll stay under the mostly cloudy forecast here. some afternoon sun. few breaks here and there. but a very weak system. so 50s and 60s on the temps. some are mid 50s farther to the north. starting to push the upper 50s around the bay and south bay as well. tomorrow looks to be almost the same. probably morning fog and then increasing clouds late tuesday, wednesday our system arrives. just some lingering showers thursday. i would focus on saturday for now. >> but particularly wednesday morning you're saying. >> yes. 8:50. a lot of attention is focused on the republican presidential primary. democrats are making interesting moves, too. senator bernie sanders gaining momentum. he is catching up to hillary clinton in some critical early states. recent polls show the two of them are neck in neck. that seemed unthinkable just weeks ago. now, hillary clinton has a slight lead in iowa. bernie sanders is leading in
8:51 am
new hampshire. but both leads, they are within the polling margin of error. >> bernie sanders, who would have thought when bernie sanders announced his campaign we would be three weeks out from iowa and it would be margin of error race? >> nationally, hillary clinton's numbers are much stronger. but this campaign season has been unique. non-traditional candidates on both sides are getting unexpected support. but that also makes it hard to predict who is really going to show up at the polls when it comes to election day. and then there is republican presidential frontrunner donald trump. he made quite an entrance at a campaign rally in reno yesterday. he shows he's ready for a fight and he wasted no time taking aim at the media. >> if the cameras would show the room, i always say show the room, you won't even believe it.
8:52 am
this place is packed. you see that center camera? it's not moving. are you gonna move it? show the room. they are just dishonest people. they won't move it. >> donald trump says he doesn't watch pro football of any more because he says the nfl has gone soft like the united states. he says a violent hit that used to be considered a great tackle now gets a 15-yard penalty. and he says referees are constantly throwing penalty flags just so their wives can see them on tv. well, the republican candidates will debate their sixth debate on thursday in north charleston, south carolina. you can see it on the fox business network. time is 8:52. the option of unisex bathrooms may be mandatory soon in san francisco. a proposed calls for single stall bathrooms available to all genders. supervisors david campos will introduce this bill tomorrow. the measure requires businesses
8:53 am
with single-stall bathrooms to make it clear at least one is available to everybody. but if a business only has multi-stall bathrooms, that would not be required for a change. now, the opening of the new bike and pedestrian path on the eastern span of the bay bridge may be delayed. the path, which right now stops just short of yerba buena island, was due to be finished by the summer. but "the chronicle" is reporting it may be delayed because of a last-minute designed change to an observation platform. once that's finished the path will let cyclists and pedestrians go between oakland and yerba buena island. time is 8:53. it's being called one of the biggest mishaps during a live pageant. >> full responsibility right here on the card. i apologize. >> it happened during the golden globe awards. this time it was no accident.
