7:38 am
lawmakers on both sides were calling for action across a wide spectrum and nothing got done. >> all of this underscores a reality that despite some partisan positioning on gun control there is a cultural divide. >> in some parts of the country it is not even a party issue, it is regional. rural populations will resist and we will be stuck. >> the white house says the president plans to have a listening session with students on wednesday. in washington doug luzader, fox news. some parents are taking extra steps to protect their children after the deadly school shooting in florida. a company called bullet blocker reports a 30% jump in sales of bulletproof backpacks. the company has sold 500 since the mass shooting mostly in florida. the backpacks are built with kevlar the same material used in bulletproof vests.

the parade begins at 10:00 this morning. allie rasmus is showing us and telling us there is not much of traffics issues today. >> that is right, i want to start with the bay bridge toll plaza because that epitomizes this light traffic. if you are taking public transit today, keep in mind bart and muni are operating on sunday schedule and parking through bart lots is free. your drive from the carquinez bridge to the macarthur maze is 17 minutes but this is a picture getting to the span the eastern span of the bay bridge with no backup at all. the san mateo bridge looks like an easy drive to the morning just wanting to keep in mind, the camera is moving because of the high wind in the area so chp issued several high wind advisories for drivers especially if you're driving over some of the bridges, use
7:47 am
caution. highway 24 through lafayette, you can see the camera moving as we have a lot of windy conditions so just be aware. 7:46 and we have been talking about the cold and the wind and i am preparing to be in the field in the thick of it. >> tomorrow morning i would get ready, we will put in a request for you to stay inside. we talked about the systems coming overland so there is not a lot of moisture, but there are signs that next week into march the lows are traveling over water which would be a better opportunity for us to get rain. that would be from march -- february 27 until march 6 so right now there is not a lot of moisture but there is cold air. we do have signs that the lows will retrograde over the water tapping into the moisture. so next week into early march looks much better for rain and snow. currently these are the current
7:48 am
windchill readings, susanville 21, truckee nine, napa airport 26, 18 mount shasta and seven in elko and eight in ely. there is cold unstable air going across the coast feeding off the warmer ocean temperatures. they are currently dropping down around 50. that was the best opportunity for us to get snow but really now we are focusing on tonight and tomorrow. frost advisory late tonight into tomorrow for the coast and bay with the lower 30s and mid- 30s. the freeze warning is where the critical minimum will be at 22 degrees. some areas were around 26 with a breeze so we do have some records like san francisco 38 for tuesday morning the record is 38 and the forecast is 38. san jose 33 is the forecast, livermore the forecast 29 and
7:49 am
the record is 28. 1942 in santa rosa the record was 26 and the high is forecasted to be 25. for once we might be setting some record lows. dc are getting a lot of snow shower activity and there could be some in the mendocino coast. a lot of this is just parallel to the coast with a few lightning strikes. 30s and 40s as we warm-up but the breeze is cranking up to 35 at sfo, 30 at half moon bay and in the delta we are looking for enough of a breeze to stir things up. nine in truckee, 42 in monterey, mostly sunny except for the coast where we have partly cloudy skies. 50s for the temperatures which are below average. for once we are below average because we have been above for the longest time except for cold and clouds. we do expect some rain next week but everything is turning. can we talk about the flu?
