6:03 am
the rain seems to have let up a little bit. we're getting that fine, misty rain that makes your hair frizzy. at this point, i can tell you that the rain is pausing right now, as meteorologist kari hall said, but this is the perfect time to get ready for the next round of rain that is coming in a little bit later. sandbag stations are stocked here in morgan hill, and also at several south bay locations. i'll post the link to the santa clara valley water district site for all those locations in case you need them. folks were so pleased when we talked with them about the first major rain that we got last week. they said they were so happy to have the clearer air, since the rain wiped out the wildfire smoke that had been choking us. this morning, we talked with a man who made her he was ready this time. >> i had my roof fixed yesterday. i had a roof leak, so they took care of it. >> reporter: it's a good thing he took care of it, because it is going to be rainy where he is. he is in san francisco. the preps are a little more aggressive there, especially in
6:04 am
some of san francisco's trouble spots. crews were putting up flood b e barriers in low-lying areas and going up with vacuum trucks sucking up any debris in the storm drains. we'll talk more about that at 6:30 this morning. if you haven't cleaned out your rain gutters or your storm drains, you might want to do it now, use the spray to your advantage. don't have any flooding where you are, and be careful on the roadways because the rain doesn't always dissipate as quickly as we would like. in morgan hill, kris sanchez, "today in the bay." >> all good advice there, kris, thank you. we're live on the coast this morning. check out the waves smashing there in pacifica. we are also under a surf advisory right now, and that's going to last until friday. we're expecting 18 to 20 24-foo waves and beach erosion. be careful if you're headed out the door to the coast. pete suratos will join us live
6:05 am
in 30 minutes. right now, we bring in meteorologist kari hall who has been tracking this storm. you say there's another one coming our way as well. >> it's raining now, and there's more rain on the way. let's look at the rain that we are seeing, mostly some light showers, but we've seen a few pockets of heavy downpours. i want to show you what's happening in pacifica. stronger storm moving in tomorrow and on saturday a quick-moving system will move across the pacific northwest and bring us rain and another storm system right behind that will move in on wednesday. we're in a pretty active period here, and as we time it out for the day going hour by hour, a lot of green here. you can see that on your nbc bay area app, as you track the rain as well. we are going to get ready for that heavier rain, and we'll be moving through during the overnight hours so we'll talk more about that coming up in a few minutes. >> sounds good. 6:05. stay informed about the storms. download our free nbc bay area app. you'll get access to our radar,

6:07 am
manafort denies that, plus -- >> i love wikileaks. >> reporter: -- he denies meeting with wikileaks before they released hillary clinton' emails. back at capitol hill, congress is at odds over money over president trump's border wall. >> $5 million he's trying to compromise that but we need that to secure the border. >> are -- if there's any shutdown it's on president trump's back. >> reporter: and on thousands of government workers who could lose paychecks just before the holidays. there just is not a lot of time left. the deadline is now nine days away. tracie potts, nbc news, washington. >> 6:07 right now. federal judges are demanding pg&e explain any role it may have had in the camp fire. that judge is overseeing pg&e's probation in connection with the deadly san bruno pipeline
6:08 am
explosion in 2010. the cause of the camp fire is still under investigation. the number of missing dropped significantly from 203 to 158. the number of dead still stands at 88. the massive wildfire destroyed nearly 14,000 homes. it was fully contained over the weekend, after igniting more than two weeks ago. the threat of heavy rain is prompting caltrans to close a 12-mile stretch of highway 1, south of big sur. that closure between mud creek and an area south of the pfeiffer canyon bridge. a massive slide in 2017 heavily damaged the bridge, it took about eight months for the bridge to reopen. we certainly don't want that to happen again, kari. >> no, we don't. you have to be careful on the roads. mudslides a possibility as we see more rain coming in. we are tracking some of the heavier downpours anywhere from san francisco down the peninsula, toward the east bay
6:09 am
and into the south bay this morning, as we look at storm ranger, and most of that rain today that we see especially during the early hours will be south of san francisco. stronger storm moves in overnight, and continues throughout the day tomorrow, as a high wind watch goes into effect. that would turn up some high waves up the coast up to 25 feet and we're also watching the burn scar areas as we are now going to see a flood watch in effect. mike, you are tracking what's happening out there as you head out on the roads. >> that's right, kari. san jose, we have two crashes, one just popped up north 101 right around story. i think it should be out of the lanes quickly. lighter traffic building off of capital expressway. our road weather index updated, much less green highlighting. we'll focus on the red in a second. northbound 87, we had one lane blocked by a crash there, jamming up around capital and slowing on capital as more folks head toward the freeway. the green highlighting means wet
6:10 am
roadways or slicker conditions possible. more rain on the radar and the we had sweep, that's active for our storm ranger, and a crash on the san mateo bridge. i'll bring you pictures coming up. back to you. >> thank you, mike. coming up next on "today in the bay," cyber shopping continues. why right now is the best time to book a flight for that vacation you have been dreaming about. lots of angry lawmakers want to know where is mark zuckerberg? and later, at 6:25,s agoverna -- as governor brown gets ready to xwa depart the capitol, we'll talk about prominent locals that are on the hall of fame inductees list.

good wednesday morning. at 6:13, we are seeing some wet roads around the bay area. here is a live look outside in san jose at christmas in the park. if you're getting ready to head out, grab the umbrella. we'll see rain in the morning and a break for the afternoon. we see a lot of greens and heavier rain moving across the peninsula. we'll take a closer look coming up in less than five minutes. the san mateo bridge, look right down by the clock in the lower right side. tow trucks arrived on scene at the service lane, just as you get to the flat section. there is the crash just past the

toll plaza, and we'll show you the bigger picture coming up. we're in the flat section of the week. happy wednesday. the head of the fed speaks today. the markets will be watching that. apple fell after president trump hinted mortar i haves are coming. the president threatened to end subsits for electric and plug-in hybrids as a punishment to gm. the government gives $7,500 tax breaks to car buyer force the first 200,000 cars sold by a car company. the president wants to get rid of it, but the president's aides were left guessing what he meant specifically. >> we are going to be looking at certain subsidies regarding electric cars and others, whether they should apply or not. i can't say anything final about that, but we're looking into it. again, that reflects the president's own disappointment regarding these actions. >> i don't know there's a specific time line, as he said, he's looking into what those options might look like. other news, house prices continue to rise. the latest numbers from case shiller show prices in san
6:15 am
francisco rose more than 9% from this time last year. facebook continues to suffer as it deals with news it knew about russian interference far earlier than it led on, after admitting it hired a pr firm to attack its clients as well -- critics, rather. in england lawmakers and regulators from nine different countries grilled this man, a representative from facebook, about the company's misdeeds. the panel wanted to talk to mark zuckerberg, but he didn't show, and the committee was not shy about its disappointment tweeting out "nine countries, 24 official representatives, 447 million people represented. one question, where is mark zuckerberg." they left a seat out for him. we have learned the head of google will be testifying in front of congress december 5th. we'll see if zuckerberg is involved in further testimony at some future point. as i was saying earlier, this is
6:16 am
on silicon valley. they tickled the sleeping dragon. the dragon awoke and i don't think silicon valley will be the same. there's regulation coming. >> exactly. thank you very much. today is national package protection day. with record sales on cyber monday, the online orders will soon start showing up on your doorstep, vulnerable to thieves. on this day last year, over 33 million front doors were receiving cyber monday package deliveries, and this year, it is expected to be about 25% higher. if you're looking for deals, right now is a good time to find cheap air fare for your next vacation, in part because more shoppers are in the market for something other than tangible gifts, especially for american workers who need to burn off vacation days before the end of the year. next week is one of the cheapest times all year to fly abroad.
6:17 am
>> you can find flights still over to europe for 400 bucks round trip. >> 400 -- okay, i'm out. i'll see you. look, online travel websites can actually offer deeper discounts if you book your flight and hotel at the same time. >> maybe you travel abroad to paris to give a little proposal. i guess we're officially in proposal season. between now and february, nearly 40% of annual engagements are set to take place, that's about 700,000 couples spending more than $4 billion on engagement rings. the average price of an engagement ring is about $6,300, according to the knot, a wedding website. the average time spent planning a proposal is 4 1/2 months. >> sorry, i'm already taken. now as we walk out the door this morning, we're tracking rain and
6:18 am
we're happy to see that, as we are going to get several waves of rain moving into the bay area. let's get a look at storm ran r ranger. before you step out the door, light to moderate rain, san francisco, down to the east bay and south bay. most of the light rain is skipping around parts of the north bay. so as we head down to sunnyvale and south of mountain view, really intense colors here showing some heavy rain, as you get ready to head out, and then for san jose, it's light, but this rain is moving in that direction. so you've got another 10 to 15 minutes before that rain starts to pick up. as we head over here toward the tri valley, we're seeing some of the heavier rain now also shifting off toward the east, but this may make it very soggy on 580, as you get ready to head out the door. now, we are looking at our hour-by-hour outlook, as we go throughout the day, going to see some pockets of some heavy rain picking up, and then as we go into, here we are, 9:00, still
6:19 am
some scattered showers for the east bay, south bay, and the peninsula. we will take a break for the most part, for the afternoon. that's your time to clear out the storm drains, make sure the leaves are cleared away, and you're prepared for some heavier rain and some gusty winds that will be here later on tonight. we start to see some of that heavy rain moving in by 8:30 this evening, and during the overnight hours, we get it over and over again, even into the day tomorrow, as the winds may pick up with possibilities of the winds reaching 50 miles per hour and also some high waves. by friday, the rain tapers off for a little while. we look at the potential half to three-quarters of an inch. some of the heavier rain may be focused across the santa cruz mountains and the south county. we are seeing some rain now across the bay area. there will be a stronger storm system moving in tomorrow, and then this one is going to quickly race across the pacific
6:20 am
northwest and bring us some rain on saturday, and then next wednesday, more rain on the way. this one is moving a lot slower, so it will take its time getting here. in the meantime, we're looking at the potential of getting close to two feet of snow in the sierra for higher elevations, really looking good there as well, as we see an active weather pattern continuing. by saturday, your rain chances are in the morning. the afternoon is looking good, but it's going to be cool and breezy. sunday looking dry, and then for san francisco, our temperatures are going to get much cooler heading into next week. mike, what's happening over there at the san mateo bridge? >> kari, i showed folks that activity. the tow truck arrived on scene and they made quick work of that. the service lane and all traffic flowing westbound very smoothly. be careful, slicker roadways are across the bay. we see green highlighting in hayward, we see a little build but no major problems.
6:21 am
lighter volume overall, the chp, highway patrol, the freeway service are trying to make quick work of any issues that. to up around the bay. so over all looking very smooth. the green patches, where it's wetter than the rest of the damp roadways. i brought that radar data kari has over on to the map as well, the rain through los altos hills and 237 or south through santa clara as well. be careful out there. that red sweep is our radar, mobile radar called storm ranger which we have over there outside of san francisco. north 87 toward kurtner causes slowing. no update from chp, they're very busy. san jose 101 coming into san jose, out of morgan hill area, this is ethan, our photographer, on the roadways. he's normally looking around for the news story but right now the drive is the news story. >> be careful driving to and from work today. 6:22. coming up, california's hall of fame inducting new members. the big names who are being

6:31 am
>> i'm marcus washington. we get straight to meteorologist kari hall tracking the storm in the area. >> most of the rain we're seeing is fairly light. we're expecting a stronger storm here this morning. as we look at the rain, where it's coming from, where it's heading, some of the heavier rain is shifting toward monterey. we've also seen the rain here in the south bay, the east bay, as well as the peninsula and storm ranger, our mobile doppler radar giving us a minute by minute update, a live view of the rain as it comes down on it santa clara. i wanted to show you other radars show not as much detail and several minutes behind, so you're getting the most up-to-date information here on nbc bay area. we can take you down to street level, where the rain is really coming down, as you look at santa clara and it's continuing to move up toward in order san jose. as we look at what else is going on here, mostly some light showers, but once again, a stronger storm is on the way. as we head over to mike, you've been tracking the road conditions, really wet.
6:32 am
>> a little tougher at the bay bridge. we see low clouds and fog from time to time. conditions are tougher and we're seeing slick spots all over the bay. as we look at your maps, you see that radar are active all over the place. kari showed you santa clara, san jose, milpitas getting wetter roadways. it's slick in many patches. new crash north 680 toward sunol creates unusual counter commute slowing. back to you. >> thank you very much. 6:32 right now. the early morning rain is pounding parts of the bay area. our team is tracking the strong waves along the coast but first in the south bay, "today in the bay's" kris sanchez live in morgan hill this morning. >> kris, the rain is coming down there. i see the sandbags behind you, they're ready to go. >> reporter: we are getting ready to go. we're taking advantage of this little break here this morning to think about what we need to do for later today to be fully
6:33 am
ready for the rain. i need to find my waterproof case for my phone, i need to find my hat, those little things that slip through the cracks when you're not fight fully ready for storm season, but that's not the case here at the sandbag yard in morgan hill. this is stocked by the santa clara valley water district, and they are ready to go. in san francisco, though, the storm preps are a little more aggressive. crews are putting up rain barriers, flood barriers in the mission district and other trouble spots. we know those are trouble spots when there's heavy rain rolling in as kari and the nbc bay area weather team are forecasting for today and for tomorrow. here in the south bay, the sandbag stations are stocked for folks who need to divert rain water and you'll know, if you live in a low-lying area, it doesn't take a lot of water to do damage in your home. also, it does not take a lot of rain water to make a mess of the roadways, as this man learned just this morning.
6:34 am
>> crazy. it's slippery, especially if you drive a truck. it's really light in the back. >> reporter: those do slip around, and of course, you should mind your speed, because a lot of folks don't know how to drive in the rain. we'll all accuse the other drivers of course of not paying attention to their speed. if you slow down, you have a better chance to react. chp tweeting to mind your speed because there are hazards in the roadways that come down, when the rain comes down. we'll track this rain for you, as it makes its way through the south bay and up into the north bay all day long, and as it gets a little heavier later on today. in morgan hill, kris sanchez, "today in the bay." >> thanks so much, kris. we continue our team coverage now along the coast. >> "today in the bay's" pete suratos live there in pacifica with a warning for us this morning. pete, we saw the large waves behind you earlier, and they're still there. >> reporter: yes, the surf
6:35 am
advisory through friday morning at least, and i'll show you behind me, you can still see the waves, pretty big waves, not as much as last hour but seeing them hitting the bottom of that pier, as we have the surf advisory in place at least through friday morning. we can expect to see waves hitting between 18 to 24 feet. in fact, in some areas, it may hit as high as 25 feet. there will be rip currents as well as local beach erosion, that's what we hear from the national weather service. don't turn your back on the ocean, as you see the waves here picking up in pacifica, and the surf is expected to peak today, and last through the night, with the advisory in place at least until 4:00 a.m. on friday morning. we're live here in pacifica, pete suratos for "today in the bay." >> pete, thank you. make sure you stay informed about the rainy day ahead of you. download our free nbc bay area app. one of the nice things about this app is it will actually alert you when rain is within five miles of your location.
6:36 am
so go ahead and download it now. it is free. it is 6:36 right now. we are just learning about a violent attack in san francisco that has led to an arrest. two people were attacked with a machete in the tenderloin. police have not described the injuries to the victims but officers arrested a suspect last night a few blocks away and located the machete. new surveillance video to show you obtained by nbc bay area seems to raise questions about what deputies say happened during a deadly high speed crash early yesterday. we covered it all morning long on "today in the bay." the crash killed the 29-year-old suspect and closed san pablo road for hours. last night, we spoke with people who live near the suspect, who are in shock. >> very sad. you don't expect that to happen to someone this close by, in your own neighborhood.
6:37 am
>> the sheriff's department says the deputy ended the pursuit and 12 seconds later came across the wrecked car. in surveillance video it appears shows the patrol car almost immediately behind. investigators say the suspect ran a red light and was going about 100 miles per hour. if you're considering buying a home for the first time, a new program in santa clara county is aimed at helping you make that purchase. it's called empower homebuyers scc and expected to help 250 households pay for downpayment assistance over the next five years. you can learn more how to apply for the program at a meeting tonight at 6:00 at the county government center in san jose. we're looking over here overall, the radar put that on top of our traffic system. i want to show you what kari is tracking, the rain hitting the south bay and definitely presenting some conditions where you will need to slow down. you also have some slowing, the crash north 87 still may be causing a distraction, but things are smoothing out from 85
6:38 am
up into downtown san jose. we take you over to the tri valley where an update shows you it might be the southbound area of 680 at sunol, it is on the center divide and four cars involved in that crash. getting toward the bay bridge, it's a smooth drive, but the crash is not the problem. that's cleared to the shoulder. we have fog dreecreeping around berkeley curve and more traffic as well. who is looking forward to the weekend? >> i'm looking forward to the weekend. >> you already had your weekend. >> you could never have enough weekends in your life, right? >> i guess not. and this weekend we'll be watching rain early on saturday and looks like the rest of the weekend is good. we're dealing with rain right now, tracking it on storm ranger, our mobile doppler radar. wanted to show you this before you get ready to head out the door. as we head toward saturday, once again, the rain will be tapering off and ending by about noon for most of our microclimates. it's going to be cool, though, still some breezy conditions left behind and high
6:39 am
temperatures only reaching the mid-50s. on sunday, we're getting sunshine, but it's still going to be chilly out there, with highs across most of the bay area at about 55 to 56 degrees. if you're going to the rescheduled stanford/cal game, it was postponed because of the smoke, this time it's looking much better, but be mindful the rain will be ending, so conditions will be kind of sloppy and the rain will be moving out as we go throughout the day. if you're going to yosemite this weekend, pack extra layers. it is going to be so cold, with a high of only 23 degrees on saturday as the snow comes down. closer to home, napa is looking at showers early on saturday and high temperatures throughout the weekend reaching into the mid-50s. we'll take another look at storm ranger in about three minutes, and also talk about our temperature trend. >> thanks, kari. looking forward to that. coming for you next on "today in the bay," just moments
6:40 am
ago, a new plan for the a's future stadium. look at where it could go and what it could look like. some california counties not set up for emergency text alerts. the reason, if you live in one, you'll still be getting them. the president seems to be going back and forth about that wall. that could be good news, as we face a government shutdown. out to the big board, dow industrials up 200 points as we await the head of the fed's major speech today. plus cow-a-bunga, this giant cow is breaking records! the way he'll live out the rest of his life.
