years. >> a lot of us have been here with him since he has been here. a lot of he players saw how he turned things around and turned the organization into a winning one. it's tough to let that go but at the same time we have to keep moving forward as players because our careers going on. >> reporter: now the big issue, who will replace harbaugh? there are a couple of in-house candidates that are. later on today -- that are possible. later on today, the 49ers management will talk about the search for a new head coach. multiple reports say that jim harbaugh is headed off to michigan. nothing is set in stone and the wild card may be the raiders. there have reports out this morning that hare vau is expected to meet -- har harbaugh is expected to meet with the raiders today.
we'll see how this plays out. we could get a curve ball. the players aren't the only ones bidding him a fond fairwell, fans reacted to the news he's leaving the 49 -- the 49ers' organization. >> we went through years of turmoil and jim harbaugh brought us back to prommy -- prommy prom nance. >> every time i bring new friends to this particular stadium, we want to walk around and see it because it's such a dramatic difference from candlestick. >> fans have their sights set on next year, especially since levi stadium will host super bowl l. they say the only thank that would make that game

>> reporter: crews are located debris and fuel sliks. it may not be associated with the jet plane. some say the plane is likely at the bottom of the java sea. here are images of the pilot. company leaders say he logged more than 20,000 hours in the air so he was an experienced pilot. the plane took off from surabaya, but lost contract withary traffic control 40 minutes into the flight sunday. the pilot asked for an altitude change because of severe thunderstorms. he was denied because another plane was already flying at that altitude. what happened to the
malaysian flight when it vanished and in july, soldiers shot down mh-17. 298 people died there. meantime, some people who were scheduled to be on that now missing air airasia plane are very thankful they missed the flight. 26 people bought tickets but did not board the family. a family of ten said they weren't aware the flight's departure time was moved up two hours. so by the time they got to the airport, the plane had already left. they were in the process of negotiating for refunds when the news came in that plane was missing. 7:10. police arrested a man in palo alto after a dramatic police chase that started when the man reportedly tried to run over a police officer. police say 21-year-old
augustine was driving a stolen truck early yesterday morning. an officer on foot tried to stop him but police say the man almost ran him over. at least 20 officers from several agencies joined the choice before the driver abandoned the truck. the man was arrested and is now facing four felonies including assault with a deadly weapon. the bay area's recent rains are making north bay trancy officials take another look for the smart train. work on the project has been delayed. it was supposed to start in san rafael but the heavy rains washed out the rail beds for the tracks are supposed to go. now, officials are working on fixing that problem and preventing storm damage once the tracks are in place. if you are heading to lake tahoe for new year's eve, you can expect a lot of company. thousands are expected at the snow globe music festival in south lake tahoe. the festival starts today. it ends new year's day at 1:00

it is 7:15. for many people, the week after christmas is the time to relax and maybe set goals for the new year. 91-year-old ernie came home to his family in redding. he spent more more than a year running across the country. he's running across america to raise awareness about a little known hero of the war. it's called the lst, a ship used to transport troops and
supplies directly onto enemy beaches. >> now that we're retired, we started seeing it and -- the under people are not being educated about it, i guess we're all getting concerned. >> andres will get back to his cross-country run after the first of the year. he's run from san diego as far as new mexico. he hopes to make it to brunswick, georgia in the next three years. >> it's a fascinating story. history. >> yes, absolutely. with the new year just a couple of days away right now, we wanted to look back at some of the good, the bad and some really controversial bay area sports moments. one that was talked about a lot was the arrest of ray mcdonald on domestic violence charges. the leaked violence happened at a party at his home in -- alleged violence happened at a party at his his home.
and then we found out recently about a new sexual assault woman against mcdonald. a woman claims she was sexually assaulted after a night of drinking with ray mcdonald e was released by the team on the 17th of december. this is the best moment of our career. >> the san francisco giants became world champs. they beat the royals in seven games to capture the third world series title since 2010. efand madison bumgarner was voted most valuable player. despite the best efforts of hunter pence and everyone at this rally to keep third baseman pablo sandoval, just weeks after the world series win, panda
bangup job. >> oh, dave. >> of course. >> again. >> i'm giving it to you. >> another $20 in your mailbox. this is what we do, we compliment each other and give each other money. traffic looking good. one area looking good is northbound 101 near novato. the reason i bring this up, there is a lot of fog out there. low clouds, if you will. this is one of the areas that the chp talked about. excuse my circle. it's one of the worst drawn circles in history of mankind. chp says low clouds especially around highway 37 and 101. be aware of that. take a look at the golden gate bridge now. that camera point taken. as you can see, we saw the bridge earlier but it is starting to get socked in as you head towards marin county if you are heading towards san francisco as well. we take a look at this. highway 24 from la fayette. there are cars out there on the
roadways, you can see it on the bottom left-hand screen but it's very foggy in some parts, low clouds, if you will. be aware if you are headed out this morning. overall traffic, not too bad out there. steve? >> yes, brian. >> it's gonna get cold. >> it will get colder. the good news, the fog will be wiped out by the breeze. but that breeze is going to be pretty strong. a pretty good layer of low crowds an nothing. concord, buchanan, santa rosa. many bridges reporting reduced visibility at 7:00. up above, it's mostly clear, but we have a weak little system on the way. that's gonna play into not only a cold forecast but wednesday night, if you are heading out, it will be cold and breezy. temperatures will drop off the table. very fast as this system right there, that's it. we're getting the western edge of it. but a low is going to form over southern california and drift over to las vegas, which is talking about getting snow. las vegas wednesday night.
for -- 40s for many. a few 30s. parts of the peninsula, redwood city, santa cruz mountains. menlo park has dipped to 37. foster city close. los altos hills, 44. not only chilly to cold here but 9 below in bismarck. minneapolis, 2. bills 2 and the cold air -- bills 2 and the cold air stretching to oklahoma city, little rock even into dallas fort worth. reno 20s. palm springs 39. las vegas, 33. it's cold. redding 29. it's even gonna get colder. some areas around the coast should have mostly sunny skies today but around the bay and also inland, we'll start off mostly cloudy with that low cloud deck, monday morning fog. as our system takes the plunge straight on down to the north, the low will form somewhere over central southern california. the wind min will crank up.
welcome back to "mornings on 2." the time is almost here. we are counting down to 2015. in just a couple of days, thousands of people will ring in the new year and a really popular spot to do that, the embarcadero. san francisco. look at these pictures. hundreds of thousands of -- of people expected to be there gathering to watch the annual fireworks display. san francisco police say they will have every available police officer onhand to control the crowds. >> we do encourage people not
to bring alcohol because we will ask you to leave. >> you encouraged if you are gonna go, use public transportation. b.a.r.t. and muni, they are adding extra trains and buses to help handle the crowds. b.a.r.t. is expanding service until 3:00 in the morning. but the trains won't stop at every station. some people in new york city can't wait for the new year to start and they are shredding away 2014. yesterday was the eighth annual good riddance day. crowds of people showed up in times square to take advantage of an industrial sized shredder. some people brought divorce papers or pictures of cheating spouses, others brought pink slips and junk mail. >> i think this is kind of a reset and reboot that we do as humans every year. >> organizers gave people the chance to write down on a piece of paper what they wanted to destroy. many people wrote down back-
stabbing colleague, stress, poverty, cancer, debt. the event was organized by a paper shredding company called, shred it. an icy plunge for 500 people off the coast of massachusetts. coming up, the man who inspired the event and how much it's grown. with new year coming, there may be more impaired drivers on the road. hear about a new bill being introduced today that may make it more difficult for drunk drivers to get behind the wheel. we're in the heart of the morning commute on this monday morning but not looking typical of a monday morning. we'll give you an update on your bay area traffic. low clouds an fog. some of that fog is very thick and also chilly temperatures but chilly can't hold a candle, if you will, to cold air. cold weather is on the way. we'll talk about how cold.
count out loud. 1, 2, 3. [laughter] >> i didn't do very well in gymnastics. >> she's trying. over the weekend -- this is rosemary orozco. she got a taste of what it's like to fail a field sobriety test. she hadn't been drinking but the glasses kind of tell you what happened. coming up in five minute, claudine wong will have more on that and we bust some of the myths about drinking and driving and before that, janine de la vega will have details on
a bill being proposed that would make it a challenge for convicted drunk drivers to get behind the wheel. it's pretty important especially this time of year. welcome back to "mornings on 2." i'm tori campbell. >> i'm dave clark. let's talk about weather and traffic. i just ran out. >> okay. >> it's cold outside the door right now, steve. but not like it will be tomorrow. >> tomorrow night into wednesday and thursday. >> yeah. >> you will -- i just went outside, really cold out there. the fog is kind of a bigger story here this morning. there is a lot to go around. some of it is very thick out there. wasn't that bad. it seems like it is now. you can see the system up there. it's visiting oregon, portland. some of that rain turning to snow. that's the system. that's it. as it does come in, the western edge of that will drop in very cold air and then a low will form over southern california and that's going to crank up the wind machine. the low clouds have picked up in intensity.
30s for some. but a lot more 40s but cold and foggy in that fog bank. 36 one location for morgan hill. one of our observers said 32 where he is there and also 33 towards gilroy. 37 los gatos. plenty of 30s in the santa cruz mountains. some by the coast. partly cloudy but the big story is the cold air plunge. partly sunny, partly cloudy. but tomorrow, colder, much colder. and the wind will pick up as well. highs will be in the 50s after some of that fog might make it tough for a few areas to get above 52, 53. by tomorrow afternoon, the cold air is on the way. now, brian, as you know, the fog has really picked up. >> it certainly has. i'm looking at my cameras. walnut creek, la fayette camera socked in. golden gate bridge, sorked in. be aware of that. if you are headed out on the roads this morning. but overall, bigger picture, traffic looks good. in is one trouble spot. westbound 4 as you approach 680. a traffic hazard on the roads. chp says a garbage can rolling
in the lanes. so be aware of that. no major problems. not too bad as you approach the willow pass grade. taking a quick look at the livermore valley. this looks awesome. 580 going into hayward looks great. hopefully, it will stay like this for the rest of the morning. eight to ten minutes to get you across the span. things are looking so good that they canceled the metering lights at 7:08. it's pretty much free and clear. 280, 880 split in san jose. we haven't talked to much about the south bay. be aware of the low clouds an fog out there. here's tori. california could soon get a lot tougher on people convicted of drunk driving. later this morning, a bay area lawmaker is introducing a proposal to force offenders to have a special device installed
in their cars. janine de la vega is live in mountain view to explain how the new technology could crack down on dui offenders. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. well, each year more than a thousand people are killed by drunk driverses in california. and state senator jerry hill wants to prevent more dearths from happening -- deaths from happening. this new bill will be unveiled this morning at 10:00 a.m. in redwood city by hill who represents san mateo and santa clara counties. now, it would require all drivers convicted of dui to install an ignition interlock device known as an iid in their vehicles. right now, it's just optional. only 20% of drivers do t the driver breathes into the device. if it detects alcohol, the vehicle won't start. the bill would enforce first- time offenders to install this device. >> i think it's important about this. it gets someone early.
-- to get the full effect we put the goggles on rosemary orozco while the officer gave her a field sobriety test. watch how well she did not do. >> i'm going to count out loud, 1, 2, 3. >> you better -- better take her away. >> i didn't do well in gymnastics on the beam either. >> we told him to take her away. she looks to be on the light line but the idea, they give you a lot of multitasking to do
at the same time. when you look down, it's confusing. she said with the goggles on, she said the line was 6 inches from where it actually was. and the officer said, yes, without a doubt she would have been failing at that test and they would have carted her off to jail. so it was very difficult. we went through that just to get an idea, we also asked the officer about myths about dui including the methods people will try to use getting caught drinking and driving. i got more educated.
>> all good. >> paving the way for brian over in traffic. we want to test your knowledge. they've gotten it both right. no pressure. if you get pulled over, brian, and the officer wants to give you a field sobriety test, do you have to comply? >> first of all, i'm glad you got my name right. >> i know. i called you bill or mark. >> i'm gonna say no. >> why not? >> you are gonna say no to a police officer? >> probably not the smartest officer. i'm gonna say no to see what he says. >> you are not required but if you don't comply to the test and you are pulled over, we'll base your this on our oner is -- on observations. >> the chp says you should.
if you are still thinking of testing your luck, keep this in mind. a dui can cost you anywhere from $12,000 to $15,000. most costs come from insurance. it's estimated your premiums will go up more than 7600 if you get convicted for the first time of a misdemeanor dui. as for the average number of drinks that you can have, the officer said if you plan on even having one drink, why not just get a designated driver make all of the arrangements and enjoy your night. don't count your drinks, just get a driver. >> good information. before you go, i tried those goggles that you tested out, you literally cannot walk with those goggles on. >> no. it's surprising and then when they put you to the test on that line, you think i'll be fine. but they make you actually put one foot in front of the officer and then you are thinking so hard. it's very sobering. >> all right. thank you. 7:40. well, still ahead.
welcome back to "mornings on 2." time is 7:46. funeral arrangements are set for a second new york city police officer shot and killed in his patrol car. officer wenjian liu will be laid to rest sunday. his wake will be held saturday. now, the funeral for lui's partner, officer rafael ramos, that was held over the weekend. 23,000 police officers from all over the country were there. lui and ramos were both shot and killed on december 20th.
7:46 t was during the funeral for officer ramos that for the second time new york city police officers turned their backs on mayor bill deblasio. there were about 25,000 officers from across the country at saturday's funeral. when the mayor spoke many of them watching outside turned away from the jumbotron. police officers say they are upset with the mayor because they feel he supported anti- police rallies. police commissioner william bratton said he understands the officers' frustration but says the act of defiance had no place at a funeral. >> i think it was very inappropriate at that event. that funeral was held to honor officer ramos and to bring politics -- or to bring issues into that event, i think was very inappropriate. >> commissioner bratton says the police and the mayor need to find common ground. he says the focus should be on unifying the city and honoring the lives of the officers
killed. 7:47. enter at your own risk. that's the warning. it's posted along a beach near san luis obusiness toe after a great white shark attacked over the weekend. the rangers at the state park say a nan his 50s was dragged under water and bitten on the hip by a great white surf while he was surfing yesterday morning. he paddinged to shore -- he paddled to shore, take on a hospital and appears to have non-life-threatening injuries. 12 other surfers were in the water. the beach was not shut down. authorities say that shark was probably a young great white shark between 8 and 10 feet long, tori. >> might have been young but not small. >> oh, yeah. let's check in with brian who is is in for sal.
>> first of all, welcome back. >> good to be here. >> the traffic looks great out there. there is a little bit of fog out there. but definitely it's monday light. no doubt about that this morning. especially here on the san mateo bridge. we talk about the fog and low clouds. you can see it in the distance there as you approach foster city. visibility may be an issue but overall, not too bad as you cross the san mateo bridge this morning. want to go to 101, san jose, again, we haven't really talked about south bay traffic this morning because of scenes like this. things are looking great there all along the south bay. it's free and clear so head out to wherever you are going. take a look at the maps. this is the north bay, 101 near novato as you approach petaluma, highway 37. earlier there were reports of major fog in the area but the chp reporting now that that fog has lifted. so that is definitely good news for visibility. steve is here now. that's the other bit of good news. he's back reporting on the cold
weather. not too bad, is it? >> well, it will be. >> yeah. >> tuesday night, wednesday, thursday look very, very cold. but the fog. take a look. san rafael. some of that low cloud deck moving around. areas in it, cold, foggy. reduced visibility for the a few. santa rosa almost all morning long, concord airport, around the bay bridge we had some. i -- so fog and low clouds. cold to cool, partly sunny, partly cloudy. we're waiting for this system and bend, oregon has very cold air. not much in the way of moisture. a little bit of precip has moved into the county. there's not a lot to the system. except it's also picking up our fog bank. it's really enhanced the inland nothing and bayside fog. 40s for many. there are many 30s from the north bay all the way down to the santa cruz mountains. a couple of 20s. i think clearlake one report,
27, cobb. 25. there were a few 20s around sebastopol and grayton. lakeport is in there, all in the low 30s. bismarck 9 below. minneapolis 2. duluth, 2. 30s to little rock and dallas. not yet to new orleans but it will probably make it. 21, 313 for reno and tahoe. tahoe in line for not only very cold temperatures but a possibility of snowshowers wrapping back around. why? because the low will form in southern california. that will crank up the wind but then that low might wrap back around las vegas and the lee side of the sierra. partly cloudy, partly sunny. the big message, it's turning colder and very windy tuesday night into wednesday and then the possibility of a hard freeze as we head towards thursday morning. on the first, the temperatures will plunge. high temperatures might be set before noon. temperature afternoon looks high and windy.
possible high wind warning. there is a wind advisory for tuesday. that will be for the entire bay area. today's kind of that transition or that tweener day. then, windy. a possibility of isolated snowshowers. but very cold. lows will be dipping below zero. partly cloudy. morning fog. low clouds. 50s on your temperatures. some of the warmest temperatures will probably be today because by tomorrow, temperatures start to take a tumble. they will drop off the table. late in the afternoon and evening and into wednesday and thursday. it does look a little bit warmer. but not a lot. not in the way of rain. but temperatures will be very cold this week. >> we've been due for this. >> it's long overdue. >> all right. thank you. they have been clogging up your news feed for days for fyke. but that's not why facebook is apologizing. the big fail about the posts
welcome back. there is a family in oakland spreading the word this morning about a home invasion scam that's apparently targeting the elderly. 78-year-old elba and her 83- year-old husband fidel say they were tricked into opening their front door by a man who pretended to know them. they say he also said his daughters needed to use the bathroom. they went in into the house. the couple's daughter who happens to live next door, she noticed what was happening and intervened. >> as i watched from my porch, i was in disbelief and shock. i was like who are these people? what are they up to? and once they all went in the
house, my gut told me, no, this is wrong. >> well, that group of people left empty-handed but surveillance video shows they were careful they wiped off any fingerprints and the man, he was holding a piece of paper when he went into the house. the family thinks this group has kind of a roster of elderly people, names and addresss that they want to target. well, a weekend funeral in las vegas was delayed after the hearse was stolen from right in front of the church. this happened saturday morning. the funeral director was inside the church arranging flowers for the funeral. family members of the deceased, well they were notified immediately. they actually saw that stolen hearse blocks away from the church. the hearse was recovered, though, about 30 minutes later around the funeral went on as planned. 7:56. two army veterans who served in vietnam and lost touch after the war have just found out for
the past 18 years, they've been neighbors. roger watson was drafted on october 6th, 1966. he says that day will always stand out in his mind because that's when he met dave brown, the pair were both from northwest detroit and went through basic training together in texas before going to vietnam. but roger was injured early on and never reunited with his friend until now. >> he came running out of the house and over to the corner, had a -- had to back the bush oiferrer to get through -- over to get through and we just shook hands and couldn't believe it. it was an incredible feeling. just amazing. >> about five years ago, roger befriended the neighbor named peggy. it just so happened she was married to dave but she didn't put the pieces together until late october when she noticed one of roger's hats with a 9th infantry patch, the same infantry dave served in.
>> what a bond they probably still have. still ahead, searchers have seen oil spots and debris in the java sea. coming up after the break, the latest developments in that search for the missing air air shaw plane -- airasia plane. the 49ers are searching for a new head coach after getting rid of jim harbaugh. we'll tell you where harbaugh is likely headed now and what we know about the possible candidates for the job. and on this last monday of 2014, traffic out there looking really good but there are troubled spots out there. coming up we'll give you an update on your bay area traffic. fog is the story. but cold and wind will be replacing this fog. we'll have more on that -- murm. -- coming up.

wednesday. alamo 38. a lot of 40s. san ramon, pittsburg and orinda in there. if you think today is cold, wait until tuesday night or wednesday. that's when the cold air comes in. as the loet foerles, then wraps back into towards las vegas. the old wind machine will start to crank up. crazy cold. looks like we'll be in the forecast and the plunge of air moves its way in tuesday afternoon. a wind advisory is up. possible high wind warning. more coming up. here is brian with the traffic. so far pretty quiet? >> yeah, it's looking really good out there. there's been reports of lee fog and clouds out there but it doesn't appear to be traffic. bay area traffic looks fantastic out there. we'll get to the maps in a moment. this is one of the spots where traffic looks good. metering lights were turned off at 7:08. tent minutes to get you across the span.

clara where 49ers' management will hold a news conference later this afternoon. >> reporter: good morning to you. yeah, jim harbaugh had tons of success with the 49ers. three trips to the nfc title game and a trip to the super bowl. tess spite all of that -- despite all of that, he's out the door. there are reports he's heading out to the university of michigan to take the job there. he and the the team agreed to part ways. harbaugh went out a winner. the 9ers bead the cardinals here on sunday. after the game, the players gave him a gatorade bath. he compiled an overall record of 49, 22, and 1. even though he had a year left on his contract, the writing seemed to be on the wall as of late and the time seems right for harbaugh and team management to their separate ways. >> feel great about what we
accomplished. feel great about the friendships and relationships that were made. that's what a team is. >> he's done numerous things for me. not only as a quarterback but as a person. i think he's not only a great coach but a great person. and that's what he preaches to the team. >> reporter: so now the 49ers need to figure out who will replace harbaugh. a couple in-house candidates who who are possible. later on today, 49ers' mansment will hold a news conference -- management will hold a news conference to talk about the search for a new head coach. and then what's next for jim harbaugh? he's rumored to be headed off to the university of michigan. nothing is set in stone. we could see a hail mary from the sill silver and black. a report says harbaugh may be meeting with the raiders at some point today.

traffic in the sky. as crews are experiencing. it's a challenging area to search. jeeary -- >> translator: we're still searching all areas. >> the search and rescue leader says if the plane crashed into the water, the likelihood of survivors is low. if it crashed on land, there is a chance of survivors. we do know the plane's pilot asked for an altitude change because of severe thunderstorms in the area. he was denied because another plane was already flying at that altitude. whatever happened to the plane happened fast. there were no distress calls made. >> the wing is not going to fall off because it's going through a thunderstorm and what happens is a scenario is created that makes it much more challenging for the pilot to fly. >> aviation experts weighing in. airasia's ceo says the pilot has logged more than 20,000 hours in the air. so he's an experienced pilot.
the company is updating mily members about the search efforts. tori? >> we'll continue to update it as well. thank you, katie. some people who were scheduled to fly on the now- missing airasia plane are feeling thankful they missed the flight. 26 people who bought tickets did not board the plane. a family of 10 all traveling together says they were not aware of the flight's departure time had been moved up two hours. by the time they got to the airport, the plane left and they were negotiating with the airline for refunds when the news came in the plane was missing. >> wow. 8:10. well, the bay area's recent rains are making north bay transit officials take another plan at the plans for the smart train. work on the rail transit project has been postponed. it was supposed to start in san rafael but the heavy rains washed out the rail bid where the tracks are supposed to go. now officials are working on fixing that problem and also
