you're at 30 degrees. fremont at 32 degrees, conquer dublin and allay below freezing at 31 petaluma and santa rosa down 28 degrees right now. very, very cold. start to this morning. yesterday was already chilly and where as much as 10 to 11 degrees cooler than that. right now, a word in concord down 10 to 11 degrees from yesterday. at the same time, livermore down 9 degrees. so very cold start. you want to bundle up as much as you can. at least rain falls down because that would have made for a very icy morning. the sierra nevada is quite slick, though. most of that snowfall we saw yesterday has tapered off as of this point. definitely is the return of winter cars having a tough time. but how are the roads? you know what? 24 highway 24 is probably the slowest. >> right now because we have a vehicle fire there. so this is westbound. 24 just east of happy valley road out in lafayette. and so you are seeing delays the year as you're traveling along 24,
6:02 am
heading to 5.80, it will take you 18 minutes now because of those delays were seen traveling into the city. but 10 minutes till maze to that free must gx. it looks like they just turn the metering lights on there. so travel will be slowing down. san mateo bridge 30 minutes and across towards the peninsula and out of richmond tolls tawanna one. you're looking at an 8 minute drive darya. james, back to you. thank you, rae. now let's get back our team coverage of the big thing impacting everybody, the cold now, the freezing cold, especially. >> impacting the homeless in the south bay. yes, santa clara county is setting up right now to start counting the homeless. they do that every year in san jose. mayor sam liccardo going to be joining them this morning. >> kron four's will tran is live in san jose with more on that. good morning. well, yeah, it is cold out there. >> it is downright frigid and the mayor will start counting in about 15 minutes from now near this location. this was not planned. it just so happens to be one of the colder mornings. i should say that he is going to start the count along with another group
6:03 am
called path and their job is to see how many homeless are any on giving any given day. and with that, you can come back with strategies on how to attack this very per pervasive problem. its whole cold. i couldn't even talk this morning. let me show you a map of the location where they will go its 3.45. west saint john, this is at the guadalupe river park, an area historically fipled with a lot of homeless population very going around. they're going to take account. and then from that count, they will see throughout the city of san jose, which is the 10th largest city in america. they will look at that to see if things have improved if they're improving, then maybe they will keep keep with what they're doing already. if it needs to be better, then they will come up with a strategy. again, this is not just sam liccardo, but they are working with homeless agencies to see what's going on. no doubt. james duryea, i'm sure they will go out and give blankets or some sort of comfort to the
6:04 am
homeless because it is downright frigid this morning. there are some homeless right behind me, in fact, and they're all bundled up as best as they possibly can keep it here. coming up at 7 o'clock, we will. have reaction from the mayor and the homeless group called path. they are behind this and what they're doing is called it's point in time survey to see what's going on. we all know how hard it is with housing in the bay area. much less being homeless. >> especially on a day like today. i'm sure their sympathies are even deeper this morning. back to you. >> absolutely. all right. thank you very much. well, 6 '04 is the time and breaking news overnight. one person has died and 3 others are critically injured. >> in a fire in san francisco that happened and a homeless encampment near the city's glen park neighborhood. the fire broke out around midnight in that encampment, which is just below boz worth street and the on ramp interstate
6:05 am
2.80. and you can see video from the fire department this morning as they had put out the flames and were investigating 3 people who were injured went to the hospital in critical condition. again, one person died and, you know, will was just talking about how difficult it is right now when it's this cold out for the homeless and here there was a fire at midnight in san francisco. new this morning in the east bay. one person died in a shooting in pittsburgh and 2 others were injured. it happened during a family gathering. we have kron four's camila barco. joining us now to explain. >> what exactly happened. good morning. camila. >> yes, the investigators believe people were gathering at home and pittsburgh and then all of the sudden shots were fired. 3 people were hit, but one of them died at the scene. now, this all happened just before 8 last night. officers blocked off the 100 block of west little and road where the shooting happened. and police say that when they and police say that when they got to this location, they
6:06 am
been shot. officers help those victims until paramedics arrived. but one of them died at the paramedics rushed another man to the hospital and he is in critical condition. and officers also later found out that a man arrived at a local hospital in pittsburgh who have also then shot. police spent the night combing through the evidence in and around the house. you can see the scene was filled with police cars right there. investigators believe that there was a family gathering at the home and they were there to mourn the death of an elderly family member. but they say that seheral men started arguing before shots were fired, was officers did arrest one man at the house where this all took place. but now this morning, these people are now mourning another death. back to you guys. all right. thanks a lot. >> well, we're also learning that an ambassador with a neighborhood support program was shot in san francisco.
6:07 am
police say it happened right around 5 yesterday afternoon at fulton street and high street right near civic center plaza officers say it was a male victim, non-life-threatening injuries so he should survive. but the ceo of urban alchemy sent out a statement saying that they're thankful that they're practitioner wasn't seriously hurt. then they go on to say, quote, the streets are not safe. the community knows that. and we hear from the community all the time. how much they respect that urban alchemy staff are trying to create positive transformations and safe spaces while often in potentially dangerous situations. >> morning when your council decisions the board makes tonight may face reversal of court determines that violated the brown act. and i strongly suggest you continue tonight's agenda between other meeting which is properly noticed. thank you. >> so my recommendation to you now is that we in this meeting and that we re notice the meeting. >> and just like that, the meeting was adjourned with nothing being settled and hundreds of san francisco
6:08 am
teachers wondering. >> are they going to see their jobs go away? yeah, that's the big question. as you saw there, the meeting came to an end pretty quick. we've got kron 4. sarah stinson live in san francisco now with the latest on all of this morning. is it not what teachers and parents were hoping for? they wanted to see some sort of resolution. >> they did. but they also did not want to see that layoff plan go forward, right? so at least this buys them a little more time. but it also leaves them wondering what their fate is going to be. i mean, they're talking about next school year laying off potentially 400 educators, different types of staff members within the san francisco unified school district. this meeting was adjourned after 90 minutes. and that's because they didn't properly post a link to the meeting in the agenda on the district's website was on another. >> link website but not the proper ones they had to quickly end it. there was no vote on it and is being
6:09 am
proposed phone until tomorrow night. in the meantime, can you imagine you've gotten a preliminary layoff notice and you're just wondering, do i have a job next school year or not? so that is the worry the united educators of san francisco ucsf says that the majority of these staff members are those who are peer educators, community school coordinator and social workers. they held a press conference yesterday where parents and staff members spoke out. >> against the layoffs and how would also hurt the students. the school board is voting on layoffs as they face a 100. and 25 million dollar budget deficit for next school year. the district says they have to cut millions in funding to certain programs and jobs or else. the state will take over the saying the district is spending way too much money. despite years of declining enrollment teachers, staff and parents protesting this say they are. there are better ways to cut funding than to lay off vital educators. let's
6:10 am
hear from a few of those staff members now. >> to weigh so many social workers and counselors. it's sending a message to students and families that the district really doesn't care about that you're responsible and not how a big city school district should operate. it's just spending it. so we need to make a priority of funding our schools, keeping our teachers keep their uk just keeping their social workers and we kids can have all the resources that they need, especially in these trying times. >> now, the meeting will be held tomorrow at 5 o'clock. and claim to be they're going to be posting that meeting agenda and a link to it on the district's website as they're supposed to otherwise like they did yesterday, it could violate the brown act and the rules for the city and the district. so that is the plan. i reached out to some of the teachers, parents and staff that held a protest yesterday trying to see if there are going to hold another protest today or tomorrow. i'm sure
6:11 am
they're going to continue to try and make their voices heard before this layoff plan is voted on. >> i'm sarah stinson reporting back to you in the studio. >> all right. thank you very much, sara. time now, 6.10, and happening today, teachers with the mount diablo unified school district are going to host a car caravan. >> they're calling for better contracts. the caravan is going to happen before the school board meeting outside of monte guards elementary school in concord. the teachers union is calling for what they say, a fair contract settlement, that they want it where it invests in student learning and lower class sizes that caravan is going to take place between 4 and 6 pm. 6.11, right now. and still ahead, a story you'll see only on kron 4, a bay area coffee shop owner hopping into his car and chasing down a thief. >> who is driving one of his employees cars. now the police say this wasn't smart, but we're going to see any the says. >> i don't think it was smart, but it did wind up. okay. we'll watch the whole thing and how it went down.
6:12 am
>> and president biden imposing sanctions on russia as tensions are flaring along the ukraine border. we'll have the latest on the crisis. plus, the big news in the bay area's how cold it is. the big news in tahoe is all that snow. it's going to be dangerous to drive there. and yesterday was bad enough job. yeah, really slick conditions up there today. so maybe hold off on the drive up to the sear until tomorrow when conditions should improve even more. so. >> it is. bridging cold morning across the bay, 20's and 30's for your current temps 50's later on today. i've got your forecast. >> well and frigid cold like jon said. so you want to hit the ball a little earlier. we already have a few issues out there. we'll take a

>> we are back 6.15, is the time. and we've got a live picture here. a tie-up, but donner summit and you can see the traffic moving. well, despite all the snow on the ground. so looks like they're doing a good job. keeping it clear. but the big worry, of course, in overnight hours as if does freeze. it's so dark. you can't see it. you know, you've got the black ice. we're in. you don't know when you might lose traction. so you got to keep things slow and that applies to not just but here as well. it's right? so where could we be driving, john? and you think it's cold enough? >> that the water could freeze on the roadway. yeah, anywhere that's close to it below freezing, which is a lot of our inland areas right now. so we saw a brief stints of heavy rainfall yesterday as thunderstorms develop. so those spots where we did see
6:16 am
rainfall, we're roadways are wet and then we saw the freeze last night. any of those spots potentially do have ice on them. so make sure to slow it down again. that's really anywhere, especially inland where temperatures are in the d% upper 20's to low 30's golden gate bridge should see freezing conditions on the span there this morning. it is cold, though, down into the 30's right along the bridge. just make sure to get yourself an extra moment or 2 to warm your car up so you can stay nice and cozy. clear lake right now at 26 degrees. santa rosa at 28 degrees. livermore. you were at 29 earlier. you're still hanging out right at 30 degrees. also below freezing for concord and the lay. whoa novato at 36 and a half moon bay at only 35 right along the coastline. freeze warnings remain through the next couple of mornings. so we're not just cold this morning, but thursday and friday morning. also seeing lows in the 20's to 30's the north bay inland east bay and south bay, especially vulnerable to these really cold temperatures. so
6:17 am
hopefully you've got those pant plants covered up. you saw that view up at donner summit just moments ago. snowfall is really out of the picture now. it's still very cold up there, though, which makes for those really slick conditions. bay area. we're just cold now. obviously no rain left. that would have been a really rough thing to see rain and snow this morning and our commute. fortunately, we have dried out now on this very, very cold morning. a few snow flurries will likely remain east to the crest of the sierra while the bay area just see sunshine and cool. sunshine at that through the afternoon winds which remain present today will aid in temperatures feeling just a little bit cooler. your feels like temperatures with daytime highs in the low to mid 50's likely to feel even more brisk. so keep those layers on hand. well, through the course of the afternoon, of course, this morning, especially you're going want to layer up as you venture out mid 50's for most of our daytime highs later on a few low 50's though in areas like morgan hill and then out to the tri valley where highs will be at 53 degrees. oakland berkeley, san
6:18 am
leandro in castro valley, egypt. 56 north bay temperatures mostly also in the mid-fifties getting your lookahead today and tomorrow, very like one another daytime highs in the 50's lows inland in the 20's and bayside in coastal lows in the 30's. another cold morning on friday before temperatures warm after that by saturday and sunday highs will be back in the 60's lows in the 30's to 40's and next week bringing a few more chances of rainfall that we can hold on. hope will come through for us. reyna. john, thank you for that. well, it was nice to get a little water on our plants last night. so that's the good news. >> but all the cold conditions make a problematic commute for a lot of us. if you have any issues with your car, you have to defrost. get out there a little earlier carr fire out in lafayette westbound 24 east of happy valley roads as you're traveling a long 24 from walnut creek to 5, 8 about 24 minutes of this hour. that's pretty much the most backup we're seeing right now. a 12 minute drive from the
6:19 am
maze to that fremont street exit. no issues along 8.80, or 5.80, through the maze. san mateo bridge heading across towards the peninsula. about 13 minutes for you there out of richmond heading across or center felt holes to want to one about 8 minutes. and let's look on the conditions in the south bay one. 0, one. 85 towards menlo park. just 29 minutes. tara james, back to you. thank you. its 6.19, and a developing story that we're following. president biden announced new sanctions. >> to punish russia for what he called brave. basically the brink of an invasion. yeah. basil john joins us live from dc now with the update. and basil, it certainly does seem like tensions are higher now than we've ever seen them. >> well, james darya, good morning. and yes, tensions are clearly high because of this aggression. >> from russia, the latest we're hearing out of europe is that your crane is declaring a state of emergency in the country is now drafting military reservist because of that threat of a further
6:20 am
invasion from russia. president biden said in his speech yesterday warning about the potential strength of the sanctions from the u.s. and its allies saying that they are worse than the ones from 2014. so now it is all up to russia as to how it want to proceed. >> who in the lords name think gives them the right to declare new. so call countries on territory that belonged to his neighbors. president joe biden laid out the first set of sanctions against russia. >> after russian forces invaded the eastern region of ukraine. this a flagrant violation of international law. >> and demands a firm response from the international community. the sanctions are on to russian banks to cut russia western finances. the u.s. also worked with germany to hold nord stream 2, the gas pipeline from russia. the president promised this is only the beginning and if russia goes further with this invasion, we stand prepared to go further. as with sanctions. these conflicts could drive up the price at the pump and the
6:21 am
cost of corn and wheat defending freedom will have cost for us as well. and here at home, the foreign minister of ukraine, up lot of these decisions so far and asked the world to continue hitting russia's economy to punish russia for the crimes. it has already committed. >> and ahead of the crimes, it plans to commute. >> south carolina senator lindsey graham says he will support the president's efforts to aid ukraine and nato but criticized him for not acting sooner. >> the biden administration has misjudged who about as badly is anyone sense? the world misjudged hitler. >> now the president reiterated that diplomacy is still an open option and the united states will keep open talks with russia to prevent a war from breaking out reporting live in washington. i'm basil, john. ok, thank you, basil, and for your money
6:22 am
and the basil reference this about how the ukraine, russia conflict and the related stations are affecting gas prices. >> the price at the pump has been going up for weeks as we've been watching what's happening with between russia and ukraine and there's no surprise to bayer economists. >> russia is a supplier of both natural gas and also oil and actually oil is one of their main source of revenue. so if they're not able to find buyers, i mean, essentially. there's going to be less oil available on the global markets. and so if there's less oil, there's less gas. and if there's less gas, the price goes up. >> and so the price keeps going up. show we take a peek at the very that you're going to pay at the pump this morning in san francisco. the averages for 91 just a penny more than you're paying in. sandra fell. and then there are a penny apart for 82. and 43 in oakland and san jose. and again, these are the average price for the regular grade of gas. and if you have
6:23 am
any kind of a newer car, even minds of 2010, i'm supposed to put the good stuff in and a good step. yesterday, cosby 5.29, a gallon >> 6.22. time. we'll take a break in a minute. those tell you more about how someone is spreading anti-semitic fliers across the bay area who police think is behind it. we'll tell you.

6:27 am
way this type of action and this type of speech neighborhoods in palo alto, nevado and timber on also found the flyers in their communities. and just last month, san francisco and other cities in texas, wisconsin and florida saw them appear as well. the anti-defamation league says the player distribution is carefully planned. i think they're disgusting. i think off fringe group that is trying to sow hatred in our community. santa clara county district attorney jeff rosen says over the last 2 years his office has seen a significant rise in hate crimes. he says they need to be vigorously prosecuted in berkeley. the investigation into the anti semitic messages is a top priority. one of the purposes of these fires is to and intimidate people. >> and so i think it's it's very important for us to say this kind of will not be tolerated here reporting in berkeley, dan thorn kron, 4 news. >> it's 6.27. and coming up next, a story you'll see only
6:28 am
