on interstate 880 looking west. what ever traffic was at the macarthur maze is gone now. the traffic at the bay bridge toll plaza is just a bit slow in some of the cash lanes, traffic continues to look good in the east bay, this is one of the best hours to be on the road. i look at the maps and i do not see a lot going on. that includes the north bay in contra costa county. we are off to a nice start. another warm day expected. maybe a bit cooler by the coast. joanna says the good news with this weather is my shorts fit from last year. great news. and you found out in february. how about that. if there are going to be records today, i think that the
oakland airport will be close. 74, the record is 73. santa rosa will be close. the city will not. san jose also within 2 degrees of a record from 1986. so again it will be within a couple of degrees of setting more records. the oakland airport set one yesterday. so there is no way that we are getting rain tomorrow. if we get any on the weekend it could be saturday and it does not look good. looking further out on the weather, the week of march ninth through the 13th is critical. that's where the record will be if we do not get rain. boy, i will tell you, crescent city is trying but after that, forget it. san diego, maybe a third of an inch. fog is out there.
water temperatures are cold. all that you need is an on shore breeze. that's on its way for tomorrow. there could be a tiny bit of fog by the coast. 40s and 50s on the temperatures right now. hillsborough, 51, san carlos, 51, 43 in palo palo alto. a little north east breeze in middle peak. you can see sfo, the winds are calm. it's another warm pattern. with that in mind it will be another warm day, temperatures way above average, but it will be much cooler on the weekend. 60s for a few, 70s for most today of the this is probably the last really warm day, then a big cool down but it still looks dry over the weekend.
in less than a week california voters head to the polls. what are the democratic candidates chances ahead of super tuesday. >> plus, you can catch the candidates this weekend ahead of super tuesday. >> we have more coming up on ktvu news right after the break when i came home from prison my sons were in their teens. so i got involved in juvenile justice, i didn't want them to go through the same thing i went through. michael bloomberg created the young men's initiative. in helping keep other young men and young women from entering into the criminal justice system. and we see it, we see it in young people being employed. we see young people being removed out the system.
running for president, what better platform for him to speak about real justice, real reform. i'm mike bloomberg and i approve this message. tomtrump on the economy.ald his people over profits plan makes a living wage a right. creates thousands of good paying green jobs in california. and provides a 10% tax cut for everyone making under $250,000. tom's plan also makes health care a right, by adding a public option to obamacare.
ahead of super tuesday. today michael bloomberg's long time partner diana taylor will be in the city. tulsi gabbard will also be in the area and bernie sanders will host a rally in san jose sunday. joe bide epiwill be in california on super tuesday. many political experts in the pay area believe most of the candidates focus will be on the latino vote. california is one of seven states with big latino populations. >> often there is a myth that latino voters only care about immigration, we also care about income inequality and healthcare and opportunities and education for all.
>> the san francisco latino democratic club has endorsed bernie sanders who saw a record turn out of latino voters in nevada. like nevada, latino voters appear to be supporting bernie sanders as well. >> ktvu fox 2 news' poll has bernie sanders with a commanding lead in california followed by joe biden and pete buttigieg. polling plays a role in how candidates focus their efforts. the number they are looking at is 415, that's the number of delegates available in california. >> reporter: statistics, polls and predictions, there are all kinds of numbers surrounding the california primary but what
do they mean? a nonpartisan consulting firm says increases in voter registration and votes by mall translate to a shifting population. >> the mechanical changes to our people are expected to make the voting population at the end of the day younger and more diverse. >> reporter: bernie sanders polls extremely well with younger voters and voters of color in the golden state but they said that the key is mobilizing them during the primary. >> just polling well is not enough. you need to get them to the polls on election day. >> reporter: another group of voters who play a huge role are the no party preference group.
but if they want to vote in the democratic primary they need to request a ballot. >> which campaign benefits? the one that gets their voters to the polls. every campaign can identify the segment of the california group that is most likely to support them. >> reporter: 70% of vote by mail voters plan to send their ballots early. that could lead to some candidates to declare victory even though it talks a month to certify results here. >> if it turns out that you did not win as many delegates as you thought, there is no going back. >> reporter: with such a crowded field, it appears that more voters are holding on to their pal ots longer. >> in 2016 we saw that engage
the voters have a 30% town out rate. now they have a 19% turn out rate. >> reporter: only 9% of independents have requested to vote in the presidential primary. >> stay with us for complete coverage of super tuesday. on mornings on 2 we are going to preview the races and then the results are going to continue on ktvu fox 2 news and ktvu fox 2 news plus. we are also going to talk about fact checking. that has come up a lot with the debates. we are going to have more information on that especially when we get to two candidates running. >> it should be very interesting. lets talk about your commute in san francisco.
that's where i want to sphart this time around. south bound 280, there is a crash, a car facing the wrong way, california highway patrol to to get the traffic to brake. but it's so early it's not causing a big traffic jam. you can always use 101 to head south and avoid 280 for now. the bay bridge is okay and this morning's commute on 880 in oakland is off to a good start. it will be cooler by the coast but inland we are near record setting territory. santa rosa, it's nice, oakland airport, you are near the record. sfo, maybe you will break a
record. the pattern continues to be the way it has bb for the longest time. part of the energy goes into the pacific northwest and heads down the coast to southern california. that's what is going to happen this weekend. a bit of fog out there. but it's still not making a push, maybe it will play into a slightly cooler coastal forecast. 50s and 40s on the temperatures for most of us right now. upper 40s around santa clara and san jose. high clouds may filter in. it's a warm pattern. after today we slide on the temperatures and the fog will make a push. that will cool us down to near seasonal levels and maybe slightly below. sunny and warm today. temperatures will be mild to warm. cooler tomorrow and much cooler
sunday. monday back to warm and dry. a new case of coronavirus right here in the pay area. still ahead why the cdc said it did not test the patient for the virus for several days. plus the latest from milwaukee on the bedly shooting at a brewery. first how a chef in oakland is paving the way for women of color. she helps them get into the business. that's coming up on ktvu fox 2 news. >> we have more coming up on ktvu news right after the break vo: while other candidates argue about health care, mike bloomberg has a record of doing something. as mayor, he protected women's reproductive rights. expanded health coverage to 700,000 new yorkers. and decreased infant-mortality rates to historic lows. as president, he'll build on obamacare, cap medical costs, and will always protect a woman's right to choose. mike bloomberg: a record on
health care nobody can argue about. mike: i'm mike bloomberg and i approve this message. we choose to go to the and do the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard. president kennedy knew settling for half-measures wasn't good enough. so when candidates say we can't guarantee health care for all, make college affordable for all, combat climate change, or create a world at peace, remember that america is best when we strive to do big things, even when it's hard. i'm bernie sanders and i approve this message.
