6:01 pm
the mission district but now it looks like that hope may be fading fast. he says he's been getting help with temporary housing since the fire but building inspectors ordered the building at 22nd and mission to be demolished. it was damaged in a fast-moving fire last january and now there's concern in a moderate earthquake it might collapse. that means dozens of tenants may lose their right to return even if new units are built. went-controlled units can come back. after demolition, those rules may not apply. one supervisor says he's trying to understand and help tenants. >> we're trying to understand that and we're trying to understand how the order of demolition is issued to see if there is a way that it could be issued so that it's not -- so that the rights of the tenant are protected and including, you know, is it a complete demolition, a partial demolition, and what impact does that have on the rights of the tenants? we are trying to explore all
6:02 pm

with her boyfriend. that was around 1:00 in the morning sunday. her family reported her missing monday. but now hayward police say after following up on leads, they believe she was the victim of homicide. >> we don't have a body which makes it even more complex, and the other part is that we don't have anyone in custody for the homicide. >> reporter: sergeant cantrell said investigators definitely believe that stacey was killed in hayward. her family just told us someone has been using her credit cards since her disappearance. they want to search for her but are frustrated police are telling them not to. police say at a later time, they plan to reach out to the media and the public asking for help trying to find stacey. her family says stacey's boyfriend was brought in for questioning and released. reporting live at the hayward police department marianne favro, nbc bay area news. >> thank you, marianne. a san jose bar turned into a deadly crime scene after two men were stabbed.

6:05 pm
problems exist across the entire santa clara county system. here are the changes they're recommending. first, revamping of leadership for the county's jails. they would also like to see how changes in the jails operate including how inmates report problems. the groups would also like to see the creation of an independent oversight monitor, not associated with the jail or sheriff. santa clara county sheriff lori smith says she's open to these ideas but so far no decision has been made. our investigative unit is also looking into the reported problems at santa clara county jails. they uncovered issues dating back to 2010. watch that investigation, happens wednesday night pat 11:00 p.m. federal officials are searching for the gun of an immigration agent. the agentlest the weapon on top of his car and drove off. happened yesterday morning at 7:00 in the ingleside neighborhood of san francisco. just last month three handguns were stolen from an fbi vehicle parked in a residential neighborhood in venetia and an nbc bay area investigation uncovered that in the bay area,

6:12 pm
columbia, south carolina. >> all these candidates swap venues next week. republicans will be in nevada for a caucus vote. the democrats will be in south carolina for their primary. the year of the monkey is already under way. today, though, is the big parade. the annual chinese new year parade kicked off a few minutes ago. let's take a look. this is what you might be seeing if you go tonight to check it out. this is video from last year's parade. should have said that, right? organizers expect up to a million people would take part in festivities. if you can believe it, this actually started back in the 1860s. it's rated as one of the world's top parades. there's going to be about 20 floats, 100 marching bands and over 600,000 fireworks. now, let's tell you where the route is here. it start at second and market streets. it goes up to post, down sutter, across chinatown to kerney then ends at columbus avenue about 8:00 tonight. do expect a lot of extra traffic
6:13 pm
in the area. if you're out there hopefully the weather will cooperate. >> today and for the days to come. normally this time of year we have to worry about rain for the chinese new year parade. high clouds around san francisco. 55 degrees. mostly clear. cool night ahead as we see cloud-free skies toward livermore. 54 degrees. san jose, 56 with a few high clouds. heading through the day tomorrow we'll see temperatures climbing into the mid to upper 60s around san jose. san francisco, mid 60s, despite a chilly start to the morning. watch the temperature trend. you're seeing it at the bottom of the screen with the seven-day forecast. places like san jose will begin to see the temperatures on the rise. mid 70s. we could break records approaching tuesday into wednesday. no signs of rain there. but temperatures feeling a bit more like spring including san francisco. we should see temperatures climbing into the low 70s for the beginning of the week, so the slight warmup we see tomorrow carries through the workweek with a little bit of cooling approaching friday. up toward the north bay, chilly
6:14 pm
temperatures to start. could see upper 30s and low 40s for tomorrow morning. for the afternoon, highs in the upper 60s to near 70 in santo rosa. tri valley tomorrow, 60s on our way to 70s. keep in mind the average high this time of year around dublin and the rest of the tri valley low 60s. those temperatures 5 to 10 degrees above average. the culprit, again, high pressure holding its ground strengthening through about tuesday and the incoming storms will move off mainly to the north. next best chance for rain to finish off february will be right there into saturday. we could see a slight chance of rain. watch as the system goes on by. then those rain chances, again, move to the north, so the high weakening just a little bit toward the end of the week which may allow for a few showers by next weekend. there you go, temperatures back to average by the end of the week. temperatures in the meantime continue to climb. the overall pattern looks dry for this time of year. consider the rainfall season to date, all of these gains 80% to 90% of average, primarily in
6:15 pm
january made. if you take a look at the february so far, those are the averages. nowhere near the numbers we had in the el nino of 1998. a little bit of improvement in the drought. if you look at this map from september. fast forward to now. see the drought severity. decreasing a little bit along the coast but the long-range forecast for the end of february, unfortunately, is dry. next best chance for seeing significant rainfall may have to wait until the beginning of march. see the pattern here in green starting to shift to a slightly above-average chance of rainfall, into northern and central california for the first few days of march, the 5th through the 12th. the middle part of the month, the long-range forecast, outlook for southern california here, the other side of the coin, typically in a very strong el nino. southern california gets more rain than the bay area. not the case midway through march. so it has been a very disappointing february so far in terms of that rainfall and snow, of course, got a good storm just a couple days ago but the outlook for february looks
6:16 pm
pretty warm and dry. we're hopeful for a turnaround for the first half of march especially around the bay area. back to you. >> thanks, rob. >> hope it happens. officially for sale, coming up some of yahoo!'s core businesses soon could be owned by a new company. a family won't be able to stay

6:24 pm
going to handle those expectations? he plans on pitching with more weight this season, 5 to 10 pounds more than he was last year. perhaps being a little more of a leader as well. >> little more vocal with the younger guys and stuff, just to have any questions or anything, but as far as, you know, for myself, you know, don't look too far ahead and like i've always said, stay healthy, get out there, if you can get out there, everything's going to, you know, work and talent and everything's going to, you know, should take over and there's going to be some up and downs, there always is every season, and it's just being able to manage the downs and get them turned around as quick as possible. over to scotts dale with the giants and many of their pitchers throwing their second bullpen of the spring. that included matt cain and from all reports went just as well as his first. pretty hard to say what we should expect from cain this
6:25 pm
year. 5.79 e.r.a. last season. what we can say, though, he is in the rotation. bruce bochy confirming that. here's cain on if he's focusing on anything different this spring. >> not necessarily. not anything specific, but, you know, everything kind of early in spring is trying to get a good foundation working outside corner. righties. kind of work from there. feeling good. kind of tweaking it out a little bit with fine tuning the mechanics. second bullpen will be today, but, you know, it's going good. >> i just like the way he was throwing free and easy. he's in great shape. it's evident he's worked hard on this offseason. you look at him, but just the way he's throwing the ball, i mean,s he -- i said this more than once last year, i thought his last start was important for him to go in the offseason and feel good about where he's at with the arm. >> i think we got a great chance of doing goods things this year. i think if we pull our weight like we have in the past, we have a real good chance of doing fun things this year and have a lot of fun. >> reporter: matt cain's best
