the grammys were last night in las vegas. the 64th grammy awards. a lot happened last night and we're going to catch you up on all of that this morning. some of your favorites probably walked home with precious metal. >> i need to learn how to pose like that. >> we can work on that. >> i do it all the time in front of a mirror. >> for his traffic report. >> and our weather report, we're going to be shivering and we're going to be sweating. >> all kinds of weather this week. today it starts out cool and windy. you're heading out the door in fremont to about 50 degrees. but the wind makes it feel a little cooler. the sun peeks out from behind the clouds today. as we head from the mid-60s here. then we're going to see 60s around the bay area this afternoon. 68 in santa rosa, 68 in liverm and los gatos in the mid-60s. but then we do ha
6:02 am
coming up in a few minutes. developing this morning in sacramento, police are searching for someone right now, after a mass shooting that left six people dead and 12 others injured. that shooting happened near city hall and golden one center. it's believed that multiple people opened fire. now, this is video showing a fight at the same time as the shots were fired, around 2:00 a.m. so far police are not confirming if there's a connection, but one woman who says her son is among the dead is now in utter loss. >> my son was a very vivacious young man, you know, fun to be around, life of the party, have fun, smiling all the time. you know, don't bother people. for this to happen, it's crazy. >> police say a large crowd was gathered before the gunfire, but it's not clear if this was a
6:03 am
specific event or a venue. this is the second mass shooting in the sacramento area this year. in february a father shot and killed his three daughters and the chaperone in the church before killing himself. a surprise appearance by ukraine's president as russia faces new war crime accusations. russia is now withdrawing from some northern cities in order to focus more on territory in eastern ukraine. this comes as new images come to light showing the devastation in areas vacated by russian troops in civilian areas. we'll warn you some of these images are disturbing. secretary of state blinken says his department is working to document any atrocities. he calls some of the latest images a punch to the gut. near kyiv, ukrainian officials have found bodies of hundreds of civilians and this comes in the wake of an appearance at last night's grammy awards by ukraine's president, volodymyr zelenskyy. "today in the bay's" brie
6:04 am
jackson is live in washington. the russian retreat is revealing horrible images and really tough to swallow stories. >> reporter: yeah, that's right, kris. we're hearing strong words from ukraine's president about the violence that's happening there on the ground in ukraine. ukraine's president saying that russian forces are targeting civilians and he's accusing russia of genocide. more horrific images of the scenes on the ground in ukraine. drone video from above shows block after block of destruction caused by russian forces. >> ukraine's president sharing heartbreaking stories from his country during a video message at the grammys. >> ukrainian troops continue to put up a fierce fight, forcing russia to retreat from areas like the capital city. >> russia's original plans to take over the whole country, including kyiv, have been dealt
6:05 am
a devastating setback. they are regrouping. >> reporter: russia's economy has been crippled by sanctions. u.s. officials say relief remains a potential negotiating tool to help end the war. >> our focus is making sure we're doing everything possible to strengthen ukraine's hand at the negotiating table, including a potential meeting between president zelenskyy and president putin and that's exactly what we're doing. >> reporter: the violence forcing an influx of refugees to flee ukraine. >> this was a huge struggle for me to make this decision and i didn't want to leave my town. >> reporter: others returning to their home country despite the ongoing conflict. >> ukraine, i want to go home. >> reporter: work on a peace treaty continues, but a deal appears a long way off. ukrainian officials say a draft peace treaty document has moved forward, but russia's top negotiator says that peace talks have not moved along enough for
6:06 am
the two presidents to meet yet. >> and it has been interesting to see this conflict as a targeting of civilians and not just collateral damage, which is unfortunate as well. so we know this conversation will continue. thank you, brie. the senate judiciary committee is expected to vote today to approve judge ketanji brown jackson's nomination to the supreme court. >> now, that approval would move the action to the full senate, with a full vote expected by the end of this week. >> that's right, dh means barring something extremely unexpected, we'll have a new supreme court judge by the end of the week. we have not heard a single democrat who has opposed the nomination, so that alone should be enough to push jackson's nomination through. remember, democrat kamala harris breaks all the ties in the senate. senator susan collins will vote yes. collins says she wants to get back to a time when the senate approved qualified judges, ignoring partisan politics, if
6:07 am
they do the job they're in. ruth bade ginsburg was liberal and confirmed 96-3. scalia very conservative, unanimous. we don't know how some senators are going to vote. we know lindsey graham who sits on the senate judiciary committee will be a no vote. you'll recall graham, a republican from south carolina, battled with jackson during her nomination process. the two arguing over her sentences in child pornography cases. jackson explaining how she followed federal guidelines and congress can change those guidelines if they wish. graham pointing to this issue as the reason behind his no vote. remember, jackson is coming from the d.c. circuit court of appeals, which is a federal judgeship, which meant she had to go through this process, the same committee, about a year ago, a little more than a year
6:08 am
ago. at the time lindsey graham voted yes. >> and he's still saying she's qualified. >> so why? >> yes, we used to do it as are you qualified or not, now we do it more do you agree with me or not. >> which is not the way this is supposed to happen. >> not really, no. >> thank you very much, scott. 6:08 this morning. happening today, a group of angry bay area mothers will make their voices heard with a graphic new billboard going up in the heart of san francisco. >> it's the creation of the group mothers against drug deaths and they are hoping it will spur changes and conversations citywide. city's cierra johnson is live in san francisco, and this is a billboard going up in a really busy area, high visibility, just blocks away from the tenderloin, right? >> reporter: yes, good morning. the goal really is to get as many eyes on this billboard as possible so they're strategically placing it in a very busy location, the intersection of gearey and
6:09 am
stockton, blocks away from the tenderloin and overlooking union square. so this is a look at what that billboard is going to say. it cases, quote, famous the world over for our brains, beauty, and now dirt-cheap fentanyl. the organization says they are spending $25,000 for the billboard to remain up for the entire month. the group says they're hoping to get the city to shut down open fentanyl dealing and the tolerance toward open drug use and the sale of drugs. >> our greatest concern is that people are going to come to the city, there's feces, dirty needles, there's people laying out on the streets completely out of it from using drugs, and they have open wounds on them, they have foil in their hands that have leftover fentanyl on it. children can get ahold of that. >> reporter: well, today's installation of the billboard comes after san francisco mayor
6:10 am
london breed let that 90-day state of emergency in the tenderloin expire last month. the state of emergency allowed for more police in that area and more services to address those drug problems. again, that organization says that billboard is going up at some point today, but they say they plan to take it outside of san francisco. they really are saying they want to take it international just to spread the message of what they say is going on here in the city of san francisco. so it will definitely be a talker, i'm sure it will be shared on social media, and this organization, that's really what they want, is for folks to talk about the problem. we're live in san francisco, cierra johnson for "today in the bay." >> no doubt that conversation will be had amongst a lot of people. >> if you want to know about it, you can watch "saving san francisco". same kind of story we've been doing online as well. thank you so much. lets take a live look at the san jose skyline as it starts to brighten up this morning, and kari hall is putting on her
6:11 am
seatbelt because this is going to be a wild ride. >> we all need to put on our seatbelts for this week. it's going to be crazy out there. we're seeing a storm system just to the north of us. a few clouds here and there. it's a windy start this morning. but then as we go into today, those winds stay gusty at about 20 to 25 miles per hour. we are going to continue to see a breezy afternoon as our temperatures reach into the mid to upper 60s. as we go around the bay area, sdpekt a high of 67 in antioch, 64 in san francisco and 68 in novato with a mix of sun and clouds. we'll talk about summer visiting the bay area that's coming up. mike, you're taking a look at some of the gas prices. >> we're monitoring some of the cheapest gas prices in parts of the bay area, and according to our buddies, gas buddy, san rafael is $5.59. also, the fuel 24/7 in
6:12 am
pleasanton, $5.61. and then in menlo park on the peninsula, $5.72 at the willow cove gas station on willow road. 500 willow road. let's take a look at some of the folks using the gas now at the bay bring. using a little more because you have to idle in most of these lanes. the metering lights were turned on, the fas trak lanes, lights turned on at 5:44. finally we're seeing the toll plaza fill in. we're not seeing anything dramatic getting through the maze, but the rest of the bay no big surprises. maybe a little lighter than we might expect in san jose. back to you. >> well, a warning for cryptocurrency users. next on "today in the bay," the new way scammers are using the digital currency to lure potential victims. plus -- ♪♪ >> grammy award winner doja cat

good monday morning. let's get you up and out the door ready for work this morning. through the tri-valley it's already busy and we're starting to see the sunrise with a mix of
6:16 am
sun and clouds expected today. still breezy going into today, as our highs reach the mid-60s. we'll talk about this crazy roller coaster temperature ride we have coming our way up coming up in a few minutes. >> in the background here we did see the temperatures in the foreground and now i'm showing you what's not a roller coaster ride, just steadily getting more crowded. 580 slows a bit more coming out of the altamont pass. getting here may be a factor because vasco road is showing more slowing. we'll time it out for you coming up. >> good morning. very happy monday to you. you're not the only one grabbing a coffee headed out for a big day at work. howard schultz is headed back to starbucks today as ceo, again. i think this is his third time as ceo. he's already taken action. he says starbucks will suspend stock buybacks and instead invest the money in stores and people. when a company has extra cash like starbucks does, it sometimes will spend that money
6:17 am
to buy up its own stock. that means fewer shares and that means existing shares are worth more. so as ceo, you don't have to increase sales or make the product better to boost your stock. starbucks is not going to do that. instead, choosing to make things better at the stores you frequent instead of enriching its shareholders. president biden was talking about stock buybacks last week, criticizing oil companies for buybacks, using cash on hand to push their share price higher instead of doing things that would help us like drilling. wall street will be thinking a lot about interest rates this week. we ged the fed minutes, the notes from their last meeting on wednesday. the good jobs report last friday has investors thinking a half point rate hike is coming next month. a reminder as we get close to tax day, if you made money last year selling cryptocurrency, you will owe extra taxes and the irs are know that you did. services like coinbase and
6:18 am
robinhood tell the feds about your profits. all this week on the "today" show they're looking at cryptocurrency. they start with a warning about scams. >> you'll see earnings, you'll even be able to withdraw some money at some point. but then when you want to draw your whole balance, that's when you realize you've been a victim because they say there's usually a penalty or fee and it's in the hundreds of thousands of dollars. >> so watch out for that, even in the legitimate sites, make sure the money is liquid and you can get it back quickly. people often stop and ask me about cryptocurrency and people who watch know i'm not a huge fan. the technology i like, the idea of a coin based on a dog -- >> it really cuts into my income because i get to keep all the money in the laundry. it's really cutting into that. >> the retirement fund. >> that explains what that noise is. i'm a bachelor, so that explains a lot. >> i'll come over and clean it up. >> all of my jeans are sort of worn out now. >> thanks, scott.
6:19 am
trending this morning, sometimes when you've got to go, you've got to go. >> so that includes new grammy winner doja cat. >> you went to the bathroom for five minutes. are you serious? >> i have never taken such a fast [ bleep ] in my whole life. >> oh, my goodness. oh, what a bummer. >> after nearly missing the grammy moment for her bathroom break, she teared up, winning her first grammy. doja cat actually took home award for best pop duo group performance for "kiss me more". >> i like that song. >> she might call you in for a colab. >> i need to make sure my vacation is approved. time to get a look at the forecast. how is it looking for us? >> not bad. we just have a lot going on this week in the weather department.
6:20 am
unfortunately, it's not in terms of rain coming our way. let's get you up and out the door. in pittsburg, ready for the school day, starting with a few clouds. you can probably hear the winds gusting. at drop-off time we're at 54 degrees and at pickup a nice 71. we can see the clouds rolling by, making for a beautiful start to our monday morning. in san jose we'll see temperatures going from 51 degrees at 8:00 to a lunchtime temperature of 64. only reaching into the upper 60s today. the seven-day forecast is coming up at the bottom of the screen as we go hour-by-hour and take a look at where we'll end up in terms of high temperatures today. fairfield will be in the low 70s. in san mateo we're in the upper 50s. pretty windy there. 63 in fremont. tonight heading back down into the upper 40s and low 50s. it's going to really heat up here quickly over the next few days. in fact, we may have the earliest date where we hit 90
6:21 am
degrees for a lot of spots around the bay area. it's only here for a couple of days before it fades. we get a couple of cold front sweeping through and so we're going from 90s to 60s all over the course of a couple of days. check out brentwood's temperature trend. starting out nice, but on wednesday is when the heat starts to crank up. we see here that those temperatures peak on thursday and friday, and then gradually start to come back down. by sunday we're seeing highs in the low 70s and only in the 60s early next week. you have to be prepared for a little bit of everything and keep checking back in for those updates. we'll see a high of about 70 today, 93 on thursday, most likely all kinds of records will be broken. and then we'll cool it down for sunday into next week. we're also going to see some gusty winds today in france and then, again, by the end of the week as it comes back down. mike, you were looking at highway 101. >> in san jose it's fine, but it's jammed up right now coming
6:22 am
through san martin out of gilroy. now, it was a lot more crowded a few minutes ago. things broke up and started moving smoothly up toward this area with the split of 101 and that means it's going to start feeding in to the slowing we saw at 540 and getting toward 630 we're seeing more slowing. typical pattern but that's where the burst is coming up. no problems on the peninsula. in the tri-valley we're seeing more slowing. vasco road up to 30 minutes off of the area out of brentwood, discovery bay, and the three avenues down to walnut creek out of pittsburg showing a build for all three routes. back to you. >> thanks, mike. next on "today in the bay," nbc bay area responds. >> new rules require us to pick through our trash a little bit and sort out certain stuff. i'm consumer investigator chris chmura. we'll show you how and explain when you might be fined for not doing it.

6:26 am
for things like yard trimmings and food scraps. many already do. lots of houses, apartment and condo complexes have green bins. if your home doesn't, just wait. >> you should see those bins showing up within the next year. >> so what about larger apartment and condo complexes? we'll get to you in a minute. local governments are required to provide houses and smaller apartment complexes green bins for curbside pickup. it's each family's responsibility to sort through your waste. so what do you put in that green bin? cal recycle says generally it's landscaping waste, wood, paper, carpet and other organics. the biggie is food waste. >> if you think about all of your food waste from eggshells to banana peels, that's what we're really focused on. 56% of the waste we throw away right now is organic waste. >> the state says local governments like cities and counties are responsible for specific rules and rollout
6:27 am

6:33 am
media showed a fight that happened with gunshots taking place right after that fight. local police here in sacramento have acknowledged that it appears to show the moments that preceded the gunfire. other videos show the gunfire continuing for at least 45 seconds. this whole area in downtown sacramento was closed off yesterday. we saw bullet casings all across the street that have now been removed. the area was opened again this morning while police continued to ask for the public's help with any information that could help them identify any of the suspects. police also informed that they've recovered a stolen handgun and they know there were multiple shootings at the scene, as they continue on the manhunt for anyone involved or responsible for this mass shooting taking place in downtown sacramento. >> thank you. the "today" show will be live on the west coast with more updates on that shooting starting at 7:00 this morning. our coverage continues not only

"today in the bay's" bob redell live for us outside of the company's mountain view campus to break down changes workers will see. >> reporter: well, good morning to you, marcus. starting today all google employees must return to the office three days out of the five-day workweek. the other two days they can be at home or some other location. if an employee does want to show up at the office more than three days they're more than welcome to do that. all workers must be vaccinated against covid. if they are unvaccinated, they must work under a company approved restriction that includes masking and regular covid testing. during the pandemic over 14,000 google workers around the world moved to a new office or went fully remote. also many of them left the bay area and spread out across the country. back in june google launched a tool for employees that showed
6:36 am
how much less they would be paid, anywhere from 5% to 25%, if they moved from somewhere like the bay area or new york city to a lower cost location. the founder of easy pr explained many employees were unhappy about the changes in pay. >> google is going to see a massive amount of pushback. apple has seen the same thing. the pandemic has pushed a reconciliation of what people are being paid for. are they being paid for time or are they being paid for output, are they being paid for attendance or are they being paid for work? and companies are having to reconcile with the fact that they've been paying people kind of partly because of where they are because they had to attract them, but now companies are facing this thing where employees have more power. >> reporter: more and more workers returning to the office is good news for nearby restaurants. among them, cucina vente in
6:37 am

6:38 am
changes we're talking about here. san francisco will be in the low 70s on friday, but only reaching 61 with gusty winds on sunday. and it's also going to cool off significantly for san jose going from the upper 80s to upper 60s. beach forecast, friday is your day. it's going to be really nice and comfortable, but the winds pick up as cooler air moves in for saturday and sunday. we'll get a look ahead to the ramp up in temperatures for the week coming up. mike, you're looking at another delay. >> that's right, unfortunately. people have been dealing with this for the last two months and now extended one more month is the real mccoy ferry, they're continuing to repair the ferry. you don't want them to use it before it's done. so use the jmac or there's a couple of bridges. it's north of highway 4. we're also looking at 780. that's fine, but there's a fire that was -- i'm sorry, there are downed wires just off of 780 at
6:39 am
military west. watch that if that is your way to 780. typical slowing on 37, 580, the bay bridge metering lights are on, toll plaza filled in and it's slow for highway 4 out of pittsburg and bay point as well. clear by the time you get to concord. looking at a build in hayward, the castro valley y and 101 north has been holding off with a little volume. spring break for colleges starting to rotate and other schools as well, and that will mean lighter traffic in many spots. back to you. >> thanks, mike. while you're sitting in your car burning up gas, you might be thinking about going electric and you're not the only person. >> it is so painful, the pain at the pump, and see those huge prices and it is driving people to think about electric vehicles. >> so maybe you want an electric car but you don't want a car payment. next, the bay area company making the move more affordable for you.
