5:01 pm
on what the jury decided today, a real mixed bag of verdicts. >> i think it is a fair outcome in the testimony that i have heard. and, you know, the jury could give a compromised or mixed verdict really came back with some guilty and some not guilty. it is usually when they are undecided. we don't know how undecided they were. were there more votes for guilty or not guilty? usually it is when they did not have enough evidence to show that they can support the verdict. i think it is a wake-up call for silicon valley to be very careful about what you say and what you put in writing and what you put on your website, so you don't make misrepresentations. because, wire fraud is no joke. when you're looking at a maximum, up to 20 years on one count of wire fraud, and ms. holmes has been convicted now
5:02 pm
on four counts. >> determine fake it till you make it has been widely used when describing this case. elizabeth holmes practices and it has been something that silicon valley companies have gotten away with for a long time. what you think will happen to that phrase now? >> i think it's not fake it until you make it anymore, it is down fraud until you make it, either. you cannot make misrepresentations. you just cannot. you have to be careful. i am sure there are plenty of lawyers out there going through everything, in any representation, powerpoint representations to investors, making sure they are not making rick misrepresentations. in this case in particular, elizabeth holmes did hire an outside attorney to look at the website. they did make recommendations to change things and she did not make those changes. >> the trial has now ended for elizabeth holmes, but there is a possibility of appeal or retrial on the three counts, and then we have sunny bowl vani, her former boyfriend and business partner.

5:17 pm
light showers on here pretty much a bay area wide. very light and this stuff is slowly adding up to the rainfall totals we looked at at the top of the newscast. here is why the rain gets more noticeable over the next few hours. play this ahead to 8:00, it is subtle, but that is actually the cold front from this system. you can kind of make it out, there will be a little bit of an uptick in rain. we can watch that march its way south over the next few hours. it is not downpours, but it is somewhat more noticeable rain as that system continues to work its way across the bay area and we still have leftover showers from this until we get past 8:00 or 9:00 tomorrow morning. so, there is a chance for rain really from now until 8:00 or 10:00 tomorrow morning. when you look at totals it is about a quarter inch of rain, tops. that system is number one, there is another coming on friday we will look at in one second. tomorrow's daytime highs we will also see getting a little bit warmer. we have some on here that get up to near 60 with breaks of
5:18 pm
blue sky. tomorrow will be pretty nice, actually, because we are done with the rain by late morning. breaks in the clouds for a time and you will be near 60, so it will feel better and look nicer. there is another system coming our way. if we look at the big picture here in the pacific, we can track a couple, the next one on wednesday is coming into far north. you will see there is a drop of rain on the northbay for wednesday for that one but it is not likely. this line out here if we let that play forward again on the long-range forecast, that line, that is the one that comes in with the next system on friday and, just to give ourselves the best idea, here, on what friday's rain might look like, you can put the a community rainfall together for friday. it comes out to another quarter inch of rain for that one. maybe a shower that lingers into saturday but at this point we have a rain free weekend. the pattern really looks clear when you look at it this way. all the rain is going too far north. really centered up in the pacific northwest, so we are just kind of getting the tail
5:19 pm
end of the system here as it comes through. there is the seven day forecast. tuesday's rain we know is only in the morning. by 9:00 in the morning we are done with rain and there is our next chance on friday. we have a rain free weekend and if you want to look out beyond that, there is another chance of rain by next monday. don't get too far ahead of ourselves, but the end of the seven day forecast is already looking like this at this point. it is a good sign because at least you know we are staying in this active pattern, and if we just get a weak system like this spaced out a few days apart, that is a much more manageable way to continue making up the rainfall deficit for at least the next seven days. i will be back with more coming up in the next half hour, back to you. >> we will see you then. trcs lance leads the 49ers to a win. the question is, will the rookie get another chance next week. we will tell you about is the billion-dollar plan to lower price tags on meat.

5:23 pm
start, his first in front of the home crowd, i got to have it whenever the texans, better than his debut three months ago in arizona. so, what did he think? >> i would say i am further along and continuing to get better with every practice and every rep i take. but i don't think mentally it was anything different. >> reporter: lance shuck off a mediocre first half by throwing a pair of touchdowns out of the locker room but here was a big one. the 35 yard scoring pass to diva samuel. the 49ers put up 20 unanswered points and improved to 9-7 for the season. next week's game against the rams is critical. get this. head coach kyle shanahan isn't ready to rule out jimmy garoppolo. >> given what you have seen from trey, does he have a chance to be the starter next
5:24 pm
week regardless of jimmy's situation? >> jimmy is 100% healthy and can do everything perfectly, then i would definitely go with jimmy. we are not just going to throw a guy in after one day like this when he's been doing it for us all year. i think it will be hard for jimmy to be 100% which is how most people are right now at this time of year. >> this is a big decision for shanahan. if they beat the rams they are in the playoffs. if they lose to the rams, the saints must also lose to the falcons. worst-case scenario is a loss to the rams and a saints win which would end the 49ers season. maybe some gamesmanship on the corrupt low front by casting a little doubt to give the rams something to think about. we will see you next hour. >> win and they are income it is their own destiny, i like that. thanks. still ahead at 5:30, 100s are calling on california leaders to ban student vaccine mandates. plus, we talk live with an infectious disease experts about concerns surrounding students return to school. the one billion-dollar plan which could help lower your

5:29 pm
masking goes a long way to keeping your kids safe, but it is going to be a rocky road over the next couple of weeks. >> reporter: have you seen with more research on the virus that kids are getting it from the each other or do you find it is more adult transmission to children? >> it is more adult transmission to children. than we have seen kid to kid. they certainly do, but we have seen transmission from mom and dad, people, 30 and lower. we are seeing a lot in the 20s to 30s, some in the 30s to 40s, a lot of them teenagers. it is just younger and we need more vaccination. >> speaking of teenagers today the fda authorized 12 to 15- year-olds, tell us more about the fda's latest recommendation and what kind of impact that
5:30 pm
will make for these kids? >> the third jab, being up-to- date with that third jab gives considerable protection against omicron. that is very clear. it is not as good as to jobs, just not as good as we would like. that third jab is important for everybody. and teenage kids, we just don't see a high enough rate of vaccination to start with. those that are fully vaccinated or have had to jobs, they really need to get that third one and that will give really good protection. >> we are also seeing a big spike until the 19 cases. test positivity at nearly 60% here in california. how high do you think those numbers could go, especially after the holiday? >> they will go up, if you look in the southeastern states, like florida, new orleans, louisiana, the rates are 17 or 18 per hundred thousand.
