firefighters burned down a house the all clear
given in southern california, where firefighters burned down a house filled with explosives. the controlled burn was ignited in escondido thursday. where the rental home was packed with the largest cache of homemade bombs ever discovered in the u.s. the sheriff's bomb and arson unit sifted through the ashes and debris and gave the all clear today. children's products were screened for toxic metals in san mateo today. parents brought in jewelry and toys and other surfaces. and they were tested for

we had some sunshine in the east bay and lots of fog here in san francisco. >> a lot of fog, overcast skies, leave it to this guy to bring you the bad news for the weather. and outside right now, a little bit of clearing. the first thing we see as we look live at the studios here, back at the bay bridge. don't be deceived by the image and while it is clear right now, as i mentioned a little bit ago, something wicked this way comes and comes in the way of fog. why is the fog out there? it is the temperatures. take a look from san ramon to sarasota to napa to palo alto, we're dealing with temperatures in the mid-50s. mild conditions outside. and couple that with a lot of moisture in the soil. and that means that we are ultimately going to have a large development of some fog today. and 52 for oakland as the overnight lows today. and 48 for concord and 48 for livermore and 52 in pacifica and 53 degrees in san francisco as well but woe talked about
the fog. in fact there will be a dense fog advisory and remain in effect for tonight and well into tomorrow morning. and we're expecting around 9:00, 10:00, we will start to see some clearing but because of all of the fog out there, a winter spare the air alert has been issued for late tonight into tomorrow. and that means it is illegal to burn. and just as i mentioned, i got to bring you all of the bad news about the fog, and the spare the air alert and then i'm also going to tell you about some rain that is expected to begin moving into our area on tuesday. and first, let's talk about who is going to see the most unhealthy air. that is the santa clara valley and the rest of the bay area is seeing moderate conditions and keep in mind it will be illegal to burn. high pressure continues to build over the bay area. that's keeping this storm well to our north. and as that high pressure builds, it is going to give us a little bit of drying, but it is not going to stop that fog. so expect a foggy start. and then if you're in the inland areas, the tri-valley, you will start to see hazy sunshine conditions tomorrow and temperatures will top out
in the upper 60s, to right around 70 degrees. but as pinpoint forecast marches us through that fog, expect it to stay along the coast, and inside the bayer, and through the early a.m. hours, and then watch the march into the early part of the day. we will see a lot of clearing, particularly in the tri-valley and most of the bay, some of that fog will stick around on the coast, and most of us will begin to see some clearing. we will see temperatures mild as well. and 59 for vallejo. and 65 in san francisco. and the same for livermore as your five-day forecast. expect a little bit of sun to begin paáebg peek -- peeking out in the bay and inland areas. we will start to see some clearing then. and monday promise more fog. and by tuesday, clouds are on the increase. that's when we expect temperatures late in the day. and by thursday, we're expecting the clouds to be increasing again. and that means a rainy day on friday. so once we get over the fog, expect a little bit of that rain to start moving in. that's it for me.
newton was named the heisman trophy winner. >> the winner is cam newton. [ applause ] >> you see, i didn't lie. newton has done it all for auburn. 49 touchdowns and leading the tigers to the first-ever national title game. he becomes auburn's first heisman winner since bo jackson won it 25 years ago. and just like toby garhart last year, stanford's andrew luck came in second place and it wasn't as close. he was nearly 1200 points behind newton. and la michael james from oregon finished third. no rivalry in college football can compare to the army and navy game. the midshipmen entered first and then followed by the scarlet knights. the first half, army trying to punch it in. trent steelman loses the ball. and then it was taken back 98 yards for the longest fumble return in school history. and midshipmen have nine wins
in a row against army. and the big house in ann arbor michigan was turned into a hockey stadium. very cool looking. over 113,000 showed up and packed the place. in the largest crowd ever for a hockey game. the game itself not so cool unless you love the wolverines, the wolverines had a 5-0 rout over instate rival michigan state. the warriors hosted miami last night. they made it the hottest ticket in town. that's the reason why. because lebron and the heat beat the warriors by 2 to extend the win streak by seven. love them or hate them it is pretty clear who is the most popular team in the league this season. >> the team has set out all year to be able to get a ticket with the fans and you want to give them what they came for. >> we understand how important every game is for us, and to try to get better and continue to improve each game, so it is not a trap game for us at all.
>> '08-'09 season, lebron james, baby. >> $300 off ebay. >> how long have you been a miami heat fan? >> just after lebron. >> you guys got tickets tonight? >> we got tickets. >> i'm going to be booing lebron and he will be cheering. >> he is only here a couple of times a year. because l.a. is ago seven-hour drive from where we live so we decided to come to golden state. >> who gets to take the last shot? >> lebron. >> i don't know. >> lebron. >> i would say wade. >> i say wade. >> what about you? >> lebron.
>> outstanding job of taking advantage of quality defense. the heat roll. >> early in the season. right now, what is good is we won seven straight. >> i can get it going sometimes and when i get it going, i feel like i can't miss. so it is good to get in the zone. you know, only a few players in the league can get in those zones and we happen to have three of them on the same team. the raiders are coming off a big win last week in san diego and this week they are in florida with a game with jacksonville and not sure if they will win but pretty darn sure they will run the ball. both teams running for that
matter. the silver and black the third best running team in the league. the jags are second, thanks to the delasalle star maurice jones drew. >> it is a street fight. no qualms about. it the same way as it was at practice today. and i don't expect to be -- we throw it when we have to of course and both teams will but when it comes down to it, it will be their front seven against our line and our line against their front seven and the bigger boy will win that battle. >> and you can see the raiders and jags right here on cbs 5 tomorrow morning. at 10:00. and of course, stay tuned afterwards for all of the post game fun on the fifth quarter. >> what do you think? do you think the raiders can win this one? >> i knew were you going to ask me that question. i had a feeling. >> yes. and the answer? >> they absolutely can win the game, sure. >> no, will they win the game? >> i was going to say hope reigns eternal. >> you are asking me. and i don't know allful the answers but they will win. they will win by two. >> if they win by two, you
know, people are going to be calling me. >> yes. that's true. >> thank you very much. >> you got it. highways closed. 50 mile-an-hour winds. whiteout conditions. yeah, we're going to take you to the upper midwest, where a powerful snowstorm is burying parts of the area in as many as 20 inches of snow. it is being called one of the worst snowstorms to hit there in decades. that and more, tonight at 10:00 on the cw. >> nothing like that here for us. we just have fog and we complain. >> exactly. >> that will be in effect until 9:00 a.m. so be careful out there. >> good to know. that will do it for this edition of eyewitness news. we will see you again at 11:00. good night. ,,,,,,,,,, it's really delicious, mom.
