were doing the lion dance tried to get the attention of the crowd so they would not get in the way of the firefighters who put the fire out. and they did so very quickly. luckily nobody was hurt tonight. so why the fireworks show was allowed to take place here tonight is under investigation. and the official cause of the tree fire is also under investigation. reporting live in south san jose, i'm cheryl hurd, nbc bay area news. all right, cheryl, thank you, a big night for the asian community and worldwide. also we're looking at hong kong, major riots, you see here in the streets, a district of hong kong. police officers being beaten by these protesters. this all started when police tried to remove illegal food vendors from the streets. the venders are common during new year's celebrations. this is the largest protest that hong kong has seen since the pro-democracy protests of 2014.

we'll show you his super bowl pick. and then a mansion fit for a star. the jaw-dropping beyonce will relax before her big half-time show. and a trip to the gas station turns into chaos. we'll have new video. and good evening, i'm chief meteorologist jeff ranieri, napa, 78, coming up, we'll have details on el nino. exactly what is happening and how many weeks we have left of a potential storm in about eight minutes. new video tonight of a near
there were no major injuries here, but two cars are damaged. and north korea was watching the super bowl, the country launched a satellite that passed right over silicon valley and levi stadium. n norad says it was a coincidence. and now, there are sanctions considered after the illegal launch. this latest launch adds to the widespread concern that north korea is developing and testing long-range nuclear weapons. and the east bay freeway shootings are random and not a threat to the drivers after the incident on i-80. one person was hit after somebody opened fire, another hospitalized. during that shootout, the car on the shoulder was hit, luckily
nobody was hit. this is the seventhshooting in the east bay. and a deadly backup causing problems for amtrak before noon today near berkeley and bankcroft way. a person tried to beat the train but the line was hit. the train is back on regular schedule. and a man shot, a school shutdown. a wild day on st. francis boulevard. a man fighting with a woman. was carrying a knife. the officer s then chased the mn into a back yard where they shot him. he was expected to survive. nearby jefferson high school was on lockdown for two hours. and there is growing controversy on the use of chokeholds. the issue caught national
attention after a chokehold by a new york city led to the death of eric garner. his death prompted the inspection nationwide. officers say they don't have a rule expressly forbidding it. but today it was formally banned. with an exception, officers may use the chokehold to defend themselves in a life or death situation. and a white knuckle ride for bikers, they want stripes painted in walnut creek so cyclists stay in their lane. many bikers say they experienced it firsthand. >> i just remember coming around the corner, seeing the car, not having time to put on the brakes but i just knew it would hurt. >> park officials admit the process has been delayed and they point to an incomplete survey and lots of public comments but they say there are plans to put down double
striping next summer. even though, authorities want the drivers to slow down and share the road. and inside the bay bridge tunnel, you can see there is a hole left behind by a chunk of concrete. luckily nobody was hurt after it came down, they showed this injury to an engineer who believes the deterioration is caused by the support beams. >> that is concerning, because the steel provides it. caltrans will not speculate on a fix until they're convinced they know the extent of the problem. and apple ceo feeling the wrath of the web, all because of one super bowl photo. take a look, here is the picture that tim cook shared with twitter followers, on the field at levis at the end of the super bowl. perhaps with all the excitement
maybe he just got carried away in the moment and took this blurry snapshot. he was quickly roasted for the shaky photo and since was deleted. i have plenty of bad photos. >> maybe he has an old 5 or something. that was not a 6. maybe he is old school. all right, all right talk to chief meteorologist jeff ranieri. and jeff, we're talking 70s? >> yeah, it was warm today, looks like some of the trend will continue for tomorrow. it has not been dangerously hot, beautiful outside, just the fact that so many of us want the rainfall to come back as we get a look right now. oakland with 79 for the daytime high today. 79 in belvedere. san jose at 76. seeing the forecast at the bottom of the screen, eventually cooler weather throughout the week. i want to take you right now into the morning forecast, for the east bay, patchy fog
developing. few clouds in few, 52, sunny skies to start for the east bay peninsula and upper 40s and also low 50s. the main driver behind this heat, the ridge of high pressure, not only impacting california but also the pacific northwest. it's steering any kind of storm system, not into canada for the most part but well up into alaska. so a lot of the west is getting missed by this rainfall. eventually with, we'll get something coming our way also in a minute. the other problem we have had are the dry offshore winds ten to 15 miles an hour. that is helping to increase the fire danger and also bump up the temperatures. tomorrow morning, offshore winds as you can see here in orinda. napa, redwood city and san francisco. watch what happens as we head through the afternoon. gradually we'll see more of an onshore wind in place for san francisco, redwood city and napa, bumping down the
temperatures a few degrees for tomorrow. we still have 70s and the record-setting heat possible. some of the warmest weather south bay morgan hill close to 80 degrees. cupertino, 73, more beach weather with 70 degrees, back to palo alto, 76 and sunny, san francisco, 76 in the marina. business meeting in town? well, you don't even need the jacket tomorrow. 72 and sunny. for the north bay, east bay, tri-valley, warmer temperatures in danville. pleasanton, upper 70s, napa, 73, back towards mill valley in the north bay 75 degrees. here is how we see it for the next 15 days. high pressure continuing, dry weather into wednesday and also thursday. by friday, the north bay may have spotty showers, not a big storm system, maybe some drizzle. we have to look towards late february and into march for the next best chance of any type of
rainfall. so with the area of high pressure sitting here a lot of us are asking what about el nino. here is the bottom line on this. the way we see it now we have at least ten weeks left of potential storm systems to move our way. again, late february into march the best chance of rainfall coming back. now the strength may rival 97 and 98, but remember all the el nino events are different so we'll take it week by week. raj and jess, when it looked towards september, looked like it could have been the wettest month. but we hope that march definitely has a lot more rainfall to come our way, guyinguys. >> thank you, jeff, and cruise passengers terrified after rough conditions at sea. we'll show you. and we have jimmy. >> hey, you guys, ben stiller my guest. do not change the channel.

done asking questions. curry discussed that after practice. >> losing the game of that magnitude, especially the quarterback position when a lot of responsibilitiy afalls on yo plate has to be a tough feeling for sure. anybody could probably say they could handle the situation better. but having not been in his shoes, i can't really tell you how i would respond in that moment. i would try to do my best. but i am sure you would probably say the same thing going into it and not expecting to lose. so it's tough. >> stick with the warriors here, their bench suffering a big-time blow. backup festus ezeli, to have surgery on his knee, and then reevaluated. the warriors back in action against the rockets. that game on tnt. we have you covered after the
contest, sportsnet central, at 6 and 7:00. might be a lot of dunks like that. marshawn lynch, literally hanging up during the fourth quarter of the super bowl, yes, the man of few words used no words to signal his good-bye. that scene was appropriate. all right, that will do it for sports. i'm ahmed bruno mars and coldplay stayed
