only at jack in the box. good morning, i'm landon dowdy and here are today's top business headlines. wall street set to open higher after yesterday's round, stocks went into a free-fall late in the session with the dow and s&p 500 closing in correction territory, meaning that they are down at least 10% from their most recent highs. the dow, in fact, falling more than 1,000 points, that's the second worst point drop ever. within $5 trillion in value has been wiped off the global markets in just the past two weeks. this selloff was sparked by continued concerns a stronger
u.s. economy could lead to higher inflation and that may push the federal reserve to hike interest rates faster than expected which would make borrowing costs like loans and mortgages more expensive, but traders and market experts say stocks were likely due for a pull back given the big gains we have seen in the past year. facebook confirms it's testing a down vote button, designed to let users flag inappropriate, offensive or misleading comments. facebook is also denying it's working on a dislike button which is one of the most requested features. marcus and laura, back over to you. >> you think they would give people what they want. >> give the people what they want, mr. zuckerberg. coming up on "today in the bay," kari has a look at your weekend forecast. >> i think this one gets a thumbs up as we start out this morning, looks pretty good as we get a live look outside in san jose and let's go to campbell for our temperature trend. starts out in the low 50s at 8:00 and some mid 70s today. we will talk about what's ahead for the weekend with some cooler temperatures, that's coming up
taking live look at at&t park. tomorrow actually is giants fan fest, so everybody is getting ready, you can meet the players and coaches along with checking out the field. it is from 10:00 to 3:00 tomorrow and it's free. giants tickets go on sale tomorrow as well. so feels like spring, feels like baseball. >> might as well get out there. >> a lot of times they will have special transportation, good option. >> a great idea. nice weekend to head to the city. >> yeah, absolutely, because we're going to have a lot more sunshine. we're going to also have some cooler temperatures which will be some great news. here is a look now at storm ranger. this is our mobile doppler radar, it's able to scan around the bay area and pick up what's going on. showing some fog over the central valley right now and some may be creeping into the delta, we've soo en that in the south county. as of now mostly clear visibility. storm ranger we're able to move
it around as we are seeing some storms arrive and when those storms arrive we will be able to track it with some better details. also gives us storm accuracy and gills in the radar coverage some of those other radars may miss and also defects the type of precipitation, fog and smoke. today we know it's all clear and we are going to have another day with some very warm temperatures, reaching near record highs. in santa rosa i think we will be just one degree shy of a record, but in oakland looks like we could tie a record there and most of the other parts of the bay area very close, but staying just below our record with highs today in the south bay up to 74 degrees in milpitas, also 74 in los gatos and 76 degrees in vanville, 70 in oakland today, 73 in san mateo and san francisco up to 74 degrees at the outer sunset and 76 degrees in novato today. so you start out with a jacket but it will be a good day for short sleeves and probably shorts once again. also you can, why not, it's
casual friday, wear some sandals and that will help keep you cool as well. heading over the next several days there will still be that high pressure but a quick moving area of low pressure will bring a chance of rain to the sierra or some snow to the sierra and also some rain to southern california. so that's some good news, although we will miss out on that early next week. so we're still going to have our temperatures in the 60s, cooler air on the way but some gusty winds. you will notice the winds picking up for the inland areas between saturday night and early sunday morning as we will have some changes there and that could increase our fire danger. so that will be something we'll have to watch over the next 48 hours. mike, you were hearing about a car that was spinning out. >> that's right, but i also know a meteorologist, kari, and just asking what are the conditions like over here. overall green, green speeds and that's good for the flow of traffic. up here just off the carquinez bridge where you see a little
slowing there was a spinout reporting, but the conditions should be all right for the drivers there. we do have a crash that occurred after it sounds like a spinout, to speed may have played an issue. your right lanes are blocked as you come past cummings sky way. if you join us on the east shore freeway after highway 4 you are just fine, at speed towards the bay bridge toll plaza with no major issues. tri-valley no problem out of the altamonte, yesterday there was a crash, nod today. we are looking also toward the north bay where traffic flows smoothly from novato down to the golden gate bridge. back to you. 4:49 right now. new details, it's the me too case that rocked the world of hollywood elites, possibly charges will be filed against hollywood producer harvey weinstein. "usa today" reports los angeles police have sent three cases to the l.a. county district attorney and those cases are now under review.
the dach is not giving any details. he has been accused by uma thur ma of sexual harassment and even rape. he denies all the allegations. you will notice these images, pictures of billboards that alameda county just put up. they say human trafficking is real and it's here. we here at "today in the bay" have been doing stories on this. the district attorney hopes the billboards will bring more awareness to this very important issue. now what about your health? a rodent is invading california, now wildlife officials want you to help them catch the creatures. they're called nutria, here is a picture of what one looks like, germans call them beaver rats. wildlife officials say they're growing in population and threatening wetlands by eating aquatic vegetation. mostly happening in the central
valley. no one is sure where they came from. they were thought to be eradicated in california back in 1978 but they are now back. bay inequality between men, women and minorities is a huge topic in america and also canada. >> one national magazine up north is taking that issue straight to its cover. the magazine has two covers out this month to show the 26% gap in pages between men and women in canada. the one cover says that women pay $6.99 for this magazine, men pay $8.81 because men make more for doing the same job. they should pay more for these magazines. experts say that the wage gap in america is more than 30%. >> pretty strong symbol there. 4:51. black history month celebrations continue in the bay area and happening at san jose state today is a brand-new exhibit called harlem reimagined. >> the exhibit is showcasing photography that visibly captures the community of harlem and new york city and the
gentrification that is sweeping through the neighborhood. these are some of the photographs that are on display. they were taken by photo journalism students at san jose state university. the exhibit runs through the end of the month. >> i've seen where that whole foods is, they say when the whole foods came you knew something was changing. coming up "today in the bay," nbc bay area responds. >> a shady force tinkering with airfare. i'm consumer investigator chris chmura, nbc bay area responds next. just learning the 2026 winter olympics won )t be held n at 4:52 first happening now, we are learning the 2016 winter olympics will not be held in america. the u.s. olympic committee won't be bidding for those games. plus keep an eye on the sky, another asteroid heading our way, it is the second this week. space rock will pass within 39,000 miles of earth on friday but still no need to worry.

shut down elicit computer programs that have been tinkering with airfares. >> this is a constant battle. for some airlines there are thousands of requests every day, they hold thousands of seats. here, computer programs that distill says are exploiting airlines reservation systems at your expense. we will show you how they're doing it and how to avoid the airfare bots and what happened when we asked the major airlines about their efforts to battle bots. call usugp[ w ñ#= your consumer questions, 888-996-tips on online at nbcbayarea.com/responds. i will see you tonight after the olympics. coming up next on "today in the bay," a check of your forecast. another nice day, kari? >> yes, it will start out cool with warm air ahead, again, today. let's take a live look outside in palo alto. all clear skies. as we start out you will still need a jacket, we will be in the low 50s, mid 70s again today. we will talk about some cooler air in the weekend forecast and some events going on around the bay area. that's coming up next.
and over here the maze shows a nice flow of traffic. these folks are on the curve there heading toward the bay bridge but westbound 80%t]r tha the east shore freeway does have one more issue, i'm tracking some slowing as you come off the carquinez bridge. the government shutdown over, congress comes to an agreement, now it's heading to the president's desk. what the deal means for hundreds of thousands of dreamers.
today in the bay. it )s friday morning here in good friday morning to you. welcome to "today in the bay." all right. so it's friday here in california, but in south korea it's friday night. they're moving on. and it's a big one. we have brand-new video this morning, you can see the crowds of people how exciting they're arriving, waiting for the olympic ceremony overnight. they're way ahead of us right now. >> but we're getting started. >> it would be nice if it was friday night. good morning. thanks for joining us, i'm laura garcia. >> and i'm marcus washington. we will get a check of what's going on trafficwise but right now we want to get our day moving with weather. you want to get us out the door and on with our day so we can get to this weekend. >> the weekend starts out really nice with some clear skies, cool temperatures this morning and a lot of sun later on today. it's going to be another warm one. here is a live look outside in
san francisco right now, all clear with our temperatures heading up to 69 degrees there, 70 in oakland, 75 in san jose and livermore and santa rosa up to 74 degrees. we will talk about a cooler and windier weekend ahead that's in just a few minutes. mike, you are tracking that crash on the evast shore freewa. the reported spinout, sounds like one of those vehicles was driving perhaps a lot faster than they should have been. looking over toward where you can be at the speed limit and that's pretty much all over the bay except for a little slowing past the scene of that crash west 80 just past cummings sky way, but it's clear by the time you get through hercules and highway 4. if you join on past there you're doing just fine. the spinout still blocks your right lane, sounds like there may be some injuries, but we don't know the details on that. and a little buildup over at the bay bridge toll plaza. no major concern as well. your travel times getting through all of your maze outlets are moving at the speed limit.
