5:03 pm
nearly 80 for many of us at this hour. look outside, our gorgeous live cameras. let's bring in chief meteorologist jeff ranieri. did el nino take a little vacation? >> it's still happening in the equatorial pacific. but some of the impacts from el nino staying out in the pacific instead of hitting us here in california and that's leading to some record-setting highs for today. let's get a look the warmest. monterey, of course, at the coastline with 84, oakland at 79, san jose, 76, san francisco 74 along with san rafael at 74. these are the type of temperatures we should have in may and also early june, so way out of whack. why is this happening? we have a massive ridge of high pressure not only over california but right up through the pacific northwest. the rotation around this is hoping to drive some offshore winds, and that's why we're heating up. san francisco at this hour very mild, 77 in the civic center, 74 in sunnyside. down towards westwood park also
5:04 pm
73. another warm location is here across the south bay. in fact, this was one of our warmest at this hour. currently reading 80 in downtown san jose, 79 in santa theresa down towards san martin 76. jeff, we'll see you shortly. so rain or shine at least in this case you can track your temperatures specific to your micro climate 24/7 with the nbc bay area app. drivers are rethinking their route. the chp is investigating another freeway shooting in the east bay. the seventh since november. nearly all have happened on interstate 80 including the one last night. the woman and her brother pulled over to change a flat tire when they found themselves dodging bullets. jodi hernandez is live in pinole. >> reporter: the chp is trying to figure out who is behind all these shootings.
5:05 pm
shots have been fired along this corridor of interstate 80 here now at least a half dozen times, and commuters are getting more and more nervous. >> it scares me that i have to like think so hard about going to work and coming home and, you know, feeling that i can't feel completely safe. >> reporter: that's how commuters in the east bay are feeling on the heels of yet another freeway shooting. the chp says a woman had pulled over to the side of the freeway to fix a flat tire last night when someone opened fire on the woman and her brother who came to help. >> while they were stopped on the shoulder here trying to figure out their next course of action, it looks like a suspect, for unknown reasons, came by here and fired two rounds striking both vehicles and a male victim. >> reporter: the man was shot at least once in the arm and is expected to recover, but he's just the latest victim. this is at least the seventh highway shooting in the east bay since november. the sixth on interstate 80.
5:06 pm
in one case a 2-year-old was hurt by broken glass when his family's car got hit. >> thinking that it might happen to us, you know? it can happen to anybody. >> reporter: commuters are getting increasingly worried. some are avoiding the freeway as much as possible. >> i try to steer clear if i could take the avenue or side streets, i kind of rather do that. >> reporter: again, the chp is trying to track down whoever is responsible. if you have any information, you're urged to contact them right away. reporting live in pinole, i'm jodi hernandez, nbc bay area news. capital corridor trains are finally moving after one hid a pedestrian. this happened just before noon today in berkeley near bancroft way. investigators say the person was trespassing and trying to beat the train when he or she were hit. passengers traveling on that line are being warned to prepare for delays. we have new trouble with the

5:08 pm
concrete spalling otherwise known to bridge engineers as popouts. >> reporter: metallurgical engineer lisa fulton explains that water leaks into the concrete and rusts the steal reinforcements. as that rust expands it eventually pops off the concrete around it. >> that's very concerning because the steel provides a lot of surface area for corrosion to form. >> reporter: a spokesman for cal transsays they're looking into the possibility of corrosion. >> it's one of the things we're investigating. at this point we're not ruling anything in or out. >> reporter: bob haus says investigators will look at other possibilities but fulton says this picture clearly points to one cause. >> this is not impact damage from any vehicle or any other thing impacting it. this is definitely deterioration. >> reporter: the yerba buena tunnel was first opened in 1936. so it's not uncommon to see some deterioration. cal trance will not speculate on
5:09 pm
how long it will take to fix until they know the extent of the damage. they're investigating. reporting from treasure island, mark matthews, nbc bay area news. more developments with the zika virus. today president obama announcing he'll ask congress for $1.8 billion in emergency funding to help battle this illness. the money would be used for mosquito control programs, vaccine research and improving health services. some of that money would also be diverted to central and south america where the virus is spreading quickly. zika is not a big health risk for most people. however, it can be extremely harmful for pregnant women. their babies can be born with abnormally small heads. i'm meteorologist jeff ranieri outside our live sky camera outlook. 76 with that record breaking heat and those clear skies continue right up here to tiburon and 72. we're tracking the warmth and let you know how long it lasts and if there's any chance of any rain soon in about seven

tailgater.that's the vice after a brazen robbe on a loc highway.==v== new at 5:00, don't pull over for tailgaters. that's the advice after a brazen robbery on a local highway. this happened along highway 1 at the coast between half moon bay and san greg oreo. peggy bunker is at the san mateo county sheriff's office in redwood city. just a one-time deal here or are they worried this could actually happen again? >> that's why sheriffs are putting out a warning today. tailgaters are annoying but we certainly don't think of them as being dangerous. that was the case last night around 9:00 p.m. in half moon bay when a couple driving down highway 1 found something right on their tail. they pulled over to let them pass and that's when they were robbed. >> i would not pull over. i'll continue driving. >> reporter: young women responding to the news that a couple in their 30s were robbed last night on the side of highway 1 in half moon bay. >> the couple pulled over because this other vehicle was tailgating them very close. so they pulled over. as soon as they pulled over, the vehicle pulled around in front of them and blocked them in.
5:13 pm
>> reporter: the victims told police that two people wearing fu full ski masks approached their car. one held a gun to the woman's head, the other held a knife to the throat of her male passenger. >> because they were masked, we can't confirm the race tore sex. >> reporter: the couple headed to the half moon bay police station where a knife wound was visible on the man's neck. >> don't pull over. make them pass you. >> reporter: police say the robbers were wearing a black crown victoria similar to this one with no license plates. the sheriffs have a warning for everyone. >> don't pull over. make the other driver go around you, make them pass you. >> reporter: other drives we talked to say they know not to stop. >> i would -- i don't even pull over for cops. i call the police station and ask if there's a cop behind me. because you never know. it's a scary situation. >> reporter: now, the victims were a local couple here from the bay area. they were on a day trip to half moon bay.
5:14 pm
the robbers made off with their wallets, their purse, also their cell phones. we heard from a detective here a couple of minutes ago. there was another robbery that took place today in half moon bay. we're waiting now for two pictures of those suspects. we'll have that for you coming up at 6:00. in redwood city, peggy bunker, nbc bay area news. now back to our super bowl coverage. the big game may be over but the stadium is still packed. like the day after christmas. shoppers jammed inside looking for bargains. most all items were marked down by 50%. >> super bowl 50. >> what was this going for yesterday? >> 180, $190? >> what did you get it for? >> 92. >> good deal. if you want to get in on this action, you got to go fast. the sale lasts only until 6:00 tonight. you have 45 minutes left. >> did you say 50% off? >> what a bargain.
5:15 pm
>> reasons to watch the super bowl, peer pressure, the game itself, the halftime show or the commercials. >> those ads create a lot of buzz on their own. here at silicon valley we have a way to track the popularity of those ads. scott budman is here to tell us wa we watched and tweeted. >> janelle and raj, the super bowl got a big boost from bay area tech companies. today google said 82% of all ad searches during and after the game happened on our mobile devices. twitter tracked all of those second screens and tivo told us what we watched and rewatched during the game. >> he's eating doritos at my ultrasound. >> it might have made you squirm, but tostito's said this ultrasound ad was the most rewatched commercial on super bowl sunday. >> puppy monkey baby. >> in second place, the puppy monkey baby. notice the trend? >> more than ever that you do see people watching the game with a device. >> yes, it's not enough to be
5:16 pm
seen. ads have to be remembered, then tweeted about. >> and he's in the end zone for the touchdown. >> the super bowl is huge, of course, but we viewers are all about the second screen. ♪ >> and more than any other single moment during the telecast, we buzzed about beyonce. tivo says she pulled even better numbers than the ads. >> they need to connect with the audience on a mobile device, via online platform, social media, and they need to create a spot that can connect with son surms beyond that 30-second spot. >> reporter: and the tweet numbers were huge which is why even with a weak set of ads. >> madison avenue let us down. >> reporter: the viewers and second screeners will be back again next year. according to twitter, the top tweeted moment of the day
5:17 pm
was the very end of the halftime show. the most tweeted about player was cam newton. the most tweeted about play was cam newton's fumble that turned into a denver touchdown. >> that was all fun to watch. bruno mars and coldplay apparently stayed at the san jose fairmont hotel. how about beyonce? airbnb. she ended up in a mansion in the hills. cozy on the couch. saying it was a superweekend, # airbnb. tmz is reporting she rented this house on 12 acres, 5 bedrooms and 8 bathrooms. an amazing pool, is that an infinity pool? >> stunning. >> with a spa, game room and fitness center. beautiful view by the way of the bay from los altos hills. price tag, how much per night, what do you think? >> i don't know. $5,000? >> $10,000 per night. >> hopefully she used that pool.
5:18 pm
we had great weather. more sunshine today. >> it's very mild out here. certainly not uncomfortable but uncharacteristic of course for february. let's take a look at some of those highs. we came in at our warmest in calistoga at 79 up against the coastline in bodega bay, 77. you don't get that kind of heat at the coastline without a dry offshore wind. even in ocean beach, 75, danville at 78. menlo park 78, evergreen coming in at 76. there's more where that came from and you can get a preview of that forecast at the bottom of the screen with our scrolling seven-day. we're still retaining some of the heat at this hour. 77 in the south bay and clear skies. east bay averaging 76. san francisco 73. and up into the north bay currently 72. tomorrow morning's forecast we don't expect an increase in cloud cover. if you are here visiting and you
5:19 pm
try to get out tomorrow, we shouldn't have airport delays at least in bay area airports. we'll start off with cloudy skies and 45. san francisco at 52 and right across the south bay at 49. the main driver behind this heat that we've been dealing with for the past two days is all about high pressure. sitting across california and branching well up into the pacific northwest. the circulation around this is helping to drive these offshore winds. so really a one-two effect here in terms of getting our temperatures to warm up. take a closer look at the wind. what you see here is tonight it's off shore, but once we hit tuesday's forecast, we'll gradually see this wind turn a little bit more on shore. you can see right here in san francisco, redwood city and orin orinda, a westerly wind. that will help to gradually push our numbers down. then by thursday we should see a 3 to 6 degree decrease in our forecast. as for tomorrow it still stays mild and above average.
5:20 pm
the micro climate, san jose coming in at 76 and cloudy skies. warm spot will be morgan hill at 79. peninsula beach weather in effect at 70. palo alto sunny and 76. san francisco looking mighty fine. 71 in the mission. 72 over towards the financial district. for the north bay, east bay and tri-valley, nice day again. wine country, napa at 73. back towards mill valley 75. in the east bay, oakland 76 degrees. walnut creek 74 and the tri-valley expecting upper 70s with the warmest in pleasanton at 78. here's how it looks over the next 15 days. i wish we had larger rain prospects. dry through wednesday's forecast. maybe a spotty shower in the north bay by friday. doesn't look too great. by late february into march, that's when our climate outlooks have that average chance of rainfall. as we finish out tonight, of course this area of high pressure has a lot of us guessing about el nino.
5:21 pm
what is happening? it's still in the equatorial pacific. and we have about ten weeks left of potential storms. even though this current strength rivals 97/98, all are different so it will be a week by week basis. let's hope for march and heavy rains returning. >> thank you, jeff. still to come, chipotle determined to win back burrito lovers. what the company revealed today about the source of outbreaks that made customers sick. mark your calendars. those dates have been set ben the faculty of all 23 csu campuses could walk off the job.
