you would like to drive up to tahoe today, john? yeah, you think, you know, we should be good, right? well, that this may look at this. we've got some slick conditions up there. >> just saw a line of trucks heading up there along 80. we do have roadways relatively clear, but still some flurries, as daria noted right before the story. there. and snow is actually going to pick up later today. so recommendation, maybe if you want to add up to the sierra do so later, this week's thing still pretty slick up there. still fairly breezy, not as much as yesterday, which is good news, but we'll still have 20 to 25 miles per hour gusts at times in the bay area today wrapping things up with around 10 miles per hour. winds on average by the afternoon and evening tonight. again, that's not as windy as yesterday. still brisk, cool and windy, though. rain and snow to our north across the bay bays. quiet right now. but there's your snow up in areas like trinity county as well as up in the upper elevations of lake county. snow picks back up for the sierra later on. and you can see that happening here in future cast snowfall. really picking back up around
02:00pm today lasting through the evening couple of additional inches may see an isolated sprinkle or 2 in the bay bill today and tomorrow, maybe even a thunderstorm popping up north of sacramento and north of sonoma and napa counties this afternoon into tomorrow afternoon. most of us, though, actually going to stay dry in the midst of those isolated sprinkles. today's highs as well as tomorrow's highs. the coolest of your forecast. so if you like that cool feel and seasonably cool weather enjoy today and tomorrow upper 50's to low 60's. going to be a great day to venture out there for a jog or maybe just for the walk with the sweater, the light jacket ready to go. you won't be needing any of that later. this forecast has temperatures move upwards really quick. oakland in castro valley at 60 for your highs. even our warmest spots, antioch, pittsburgh, fairfield vacaville at 63 for your highs today at our warmest, we're barely making the low 60's. but look at saturday will be in the low 90's for many of those same inland areas with sunshine, returning in full force as soon as wednesday,
both today and tomorrow coming along with that chance of showers. as for roads, things have been pretty cooperative. we had a few issues on the bay bridge at times and things are starting to slow down a little bit again, we are seeing backup there at the toll plaza and the latest there is actually stretching a little bit east of the toll plaza. now we actually just had an incident pop-up. chp is informing us high winds on the bay bridge. and we actually do have an incident there right after you get through the plaza. i think that's why that backup is formed. now, the san mateo bridge, 13 minutes got a little sunshine peeking through there between the clouds and rolling at the limit along the richmond center fell 15 minutes to make your crossing. also at the limit over the golden gate, daria. time to talk winners and losers with our financial expert rob black either. rob. >> a guy, how are you this well, i'm fine. but is the sky falling? i mean, what that coin is diving. wall street is diving. you'll tell me right if it's
>> 2022 is not looking and it's looking. you know, we have to wait. there's a big moment coming up on wednesday, cpi, the consumer price inflation, essentially prices are up 8 and a half percent year over year. our wages are up 5.6%. so, you know, we have jobs are still losing purchasing power. wall street hates. means will buy less for more in the future here today, nasdaq down 22%. the s p 500 down 13%. yes. and he realistically could go down 13%, a normal year. so we're still at normal. you know, you ask, is the sky falling? the question is doing it on 30, which is once every 4 years. and that's looking more and more we're not getting enough all telling people aren't giving up the part, get quitting in some areas. they like companies are earning money. but in other areas, it's kind bring down the violation. so that's, you know, kind of thought. and i think uber says that while the day as we start interviewing people were going to let them know that work is a privilege. so the dynamic is shifting a
little bit from the employee back to the employer. so it what? what? what do you mean by that? because actually i thought it was. >> we need workers. workers and workers were in control. we are the driving seat right now. you're saying. are saying, no, it's a privilege. you're lucky if you get this job but don't we're teeter totter. and let me give you some thoughts on you know, we all know people who quit her job last year to become day traders a coin stocks. >> i lost a good friendship of a female who was a single mother. second, just like you. i buy and sell stocks now for a look like that doesn't sound so we need to shake those people out and think that it's easy. and that's exactly the market's doing at this point in time. it always feels worse than it is. again, historically, we are exactly a normal year. it just feels a normal because we haven't had a normal year and roughly 10 years mark, it's turned into bear market corrections are more than 5%. all right. ok, ok, what about bitcoin or you as calm on that visit sliding?
>> i don't own any bitcoin. i'm i'm in the warren buffett camp of it seems too speculative. if i did, i went on less than 5% of my worth. but you can't really sell it to someone you can't short. so all it is is people are if you're letting your daughter buys it and she hopes i buy it from her and i hope you buy it for me. that's a bit of a problem. and they can kind of go both ways on the trade. it's just not a market. it's just an accumulate and hope it goes higher. but today broke down to 32,500 that now puts town over 55% from its all-time high. that's brutal. but again, it's a lot of people. i know people who, you know, have instagram accounts that bitcoin's going make me a millionaire. it's not that easy. it wasn't easy that everyone would be doing it. and where earlier skates to work all day. so the next level support about 11,000 on that point, you take a look at the chart from 11,000, basically 60,000 and some stops around the 40 level and 32,000 little, that's where we're civic is below. 32. i could easily see got 12,000, but i wanted to know. all
right. all coins like ether and the memes ones like she do and went all-in. it had institutions don't really own it. so the people that own bitcoin are largely, but there's some institutions, largely retail investors, and they're not the most reliable hands. things get tough, they tend to duck jump ship. we've got to have all tony so high that everyone thinks everything's going to 0. well, not there yet to to bring back your roller skating, which i don't know if you're any good at you know how i stop. >> hit the wall. so let's it doesn't end like that. >> doctor strange made a ton of money and have the people that i would not see this that i would not see this movie because it's too much know we've seen they were. >> don't get it does not want this superhero they get. but marvel super happy to have them doctor strangelove because they have died covid like black widow and the eternals. but now they've got spiderman. and now my multiverse of madness has been a metaverse of madness. said mark zuckerberg told the multiverse is much better and marvel 185 million people, not
1 million 185 1 million dollars. that's about 11 and a half million. a little less than spiderman, but still a pretty good number 2 for 2022. but listen, the slate, a lineup movies coming up. and this is a good thing, diane, we're spending money. we're still going on vacation. we're still ok and the markets doing its thing. but next weekend we get top gun. then we get traffic world and we get light year. then we get millions and we get 4 all in the next 6 weeks. 6, it movie lineup again, testing covid testing people's resilience to get back into large crowds. so i'm looking forward to it. >> he's alright. i yeah, you got me on top gun. all right. thanks a lot, rob. if right, he a that's that's always a good one. if you'd like e-mail, right? you can. if you want to share some of your favorite movie chains, take my breath facebook or twitter. you can reach in that way to
