clearly the live camera shows a little bit of different story. so watch what's coming out of the altamont pass. a little patchy, dense fog for the north bay, but the speeds all over the bay reflecting green just like this. back to you. >> thank you very much, mike. coming up next, catching up. presidential frontrunners on the defense as their rival starts to gain in numbers. how they're jabbing back. that steve jobs movie, which has been available in the bay area for a while, final gets its wide reless. they did not like it in nebraska. a body camera video that's revealing more about a deadly raid on an isis prison. dramatic video - obtained
exclusively by nbc - shows what's believed to be last prison. aid in iraq on an isis one u-s soldier was killed in the rescue mon there's traumatic video obtained exclusively by nbc showing what's believed to be last week's raid in iraq on an isis prison. one u.s. soldier was killed in that rescue mission, but dozens of hostages were freed. the video appears to show a joint u.s.-kurdish commando team in action. with the sound of gunfire in the background, terrified hostages emerge dirty and barefoot. arab 24 news agency obtained this video first, which the network claims to have received from kurdish military officials. donald trump takes aim at ben carson. it come after two polls place donald trump second in iowa. >> switching at the top. tracie potts joining us live from washington. trump is really going after

misapply them. >> donald trump is looking over his shoulder, and now in iowa, trying to catch up. >> he already had an iowa problem. he took back a tweet, a retweet that he blamed on an intern that seemed to insult iowa voters. looks like he's got to focus a little bit more on iowa as he hopes to regain frontrunner status there. >> let's see exactly how he does. tracie potts from washington. trump will take questions from potential voters on the "today" show this morning. it's all part of a live town hall meeting from new hampshire. matt lauer will moderate questions from the audience. the republican presidential hopeful will also take questions submitted on social media. then watch it later right after "today in the bay" wraps up. >> meantime, hillary clinton is planning another trip to the bay area.

the nasdaq surging 112 to 5031. last weekend, one-hour delivery to certain zip codes in san francisco and san jose. now there's an app for that. it's called prime now. they've offering halloween items. i think that looks like kris sanchez's dog, by the way. because we really need a pet costume right now. amazon will deliver in an hour for an $8 charge if you're a prime member. free again if you are a prime member. >> that's cool. >> it's fun. >> it's nice to be able -- particularly with food items. like you're short on olives. >> i'm hungry now. >> you can have that there in one hour. that really does fit a niche. >> that is good to know. he still hasn't handed over his phone, if you haven't noticed. >> maybe you should get him to ship a sweater or something this morning. >> an umbrella. >> yes. i'm so excited.
but unfortunately, we're not going to get as much rain as we could have. i'll explain in a sechblgd leon. let's get a look at what's happening in san francisco. some clouds this morning, but you can see the visibility is nice and clear there. that may not be the case everywhere, especially in the north bay. we've had some patchy, dense fog. also settling into parts of the tri-valley, too. so now with our temperatures in the low 50s, let's go hour by hour in oakland. at 7:00, we're at 55 degrees, and then 57. you still see those clouds throughout the morning. as you head out for lunch, you should see some bright sunshine and temperatures warming up into the low 70s. we'll be at 73 degrees at 4:00 and a light wind. a look at all the microclimates. in gilroy, up to 83 degrees. 79 in oakland, and 74 rather in oakland, but 79 in napa. livermore today up to 83
degrees. our next storm system is this large cold front that is continuing to move across the pacific. and as it moves closer, looks like we'll see an increase in clouds heading into tomorrow. today after the morning clouds roll out of here, we will have some sunshine. you can see those clouds in here by tomorrow afternoon. and then the chance of rain moving in as we head into early wednesday. looks like by wednesday afternoon, all of that rain is gone. and we were looking at tropical storm olaf in the pacific as a possibility of bringing more rain. now it continues to weaken, and then it just kind of dies to the south, and this thing just fizzles out. unfortunately, it doesn't look like we'll be able to tap into that tropical system to bring us more rain, but at least we could get about a quarter of an inch and a tenth of an inch in san jose. once again that will be on wednesday. let's check in now with mike to see what's happening on the roads. >> first of all, kari, we're happy to hear the hurricane turned out to be -- for olaf.

expected to face. a saratoga woman is fighting for her life after a fiery head-on car crash that killed five people. the crash happened saturday night on highway 120, which links the bay area to yosemite national park. the chp says this is one of the worst crashes officers have responded to in years. a mercedes suv slammed head-on into a nissan maxima, killing five people. investigators say because the victims were so badly burned, they must rely on dental records to identify them. the chp says this was one of the only survivors of the crash. she is now in critical condition at the hospital. she is a saratoga mother of three. neighbors say she's a great person to be around. >> she's very sweet and seemed like the organizer of the family. and also the gardener. >> investigators have not figured out which vehicle crossed over the double yellow line causing the crash.

flow of traffic, but it will result in a wait getting on to the freeway, so we'll see how things weigh out. we see slowing already developing. 5:00 a.m. to 9:00 a.m., that's the change you'll see, the folks getting on to the freeway and we'll see how it plays out for your morning commute. someone's already not happy about it because she had to wait a little longer there. we have those metering lights set to turn on in the next few minutes. back to you. >> thank you very much, mike. an update now to breaking news. 12 schoolgirls were killed in their classroom after a 7.5 earthquake in afghanistan. but it was actually felt throughout south asia. reports are starting to come in from afghanistan and pakistan. >> "today in the bay's" kris sanchez has been keeping close tabs on developments from that area from that area of the world and what we learned about the school children. >> you mentioned those 12 schoolgirls who died, that and all the other students who were in class when that quake struck because it was just 9:00 in the morning. 40 other children were also rushed to the hospital in that

and much more. the city expects to complete that project sometime next summer. >> unusually high tides will have an impact on some commuters. the sheriff says all week the lower half of the park and ride lot will be closed along highway 1 in mill valley. some nearby street parking will also be off-limits. damage caused in that same area last year, so they are just getting prepared. we are getting prepared for some rain later in the week, as we were talking about the fact we might have seen precipitation from hurricane olaf. it's not quite working out. >> no, it's not working out for us. but we are expecting some rain. >> let it go. >> a "frozen" reference there. so we'll talk about that rain chance. mike will keep you updated on the commute. we do have some fog this morning. let's take a live look outside as we see the bay bridge. no fog there, but low clouds. low clouds will clear out
gradually as we go through the day. and it will be comfortable. we're in for a great way to start out the week. what makes it even greater is we know there could be some rain by wednesday. a look at the current temperatures. 57 degrees in san jose. 53 degrees in napa. and 54 degrees in livermore. a lot of clouds cfoicovering thy area. reducing the visibility as you drive to work. and we will still see the clouds and the fog near the immediate coastline, but the rest of us clearing out this afternoon as temperatures warm up. maybe a degree or two warmer than yesterday. but yesterday was so nice. and we keep those temperatures. we will see a few more clouds later on tonight. a look at the forecast hour by hour in san jose. at 7:00, it is 57 degrees. we stay in the 50s for a few hours. the sun breaks out by 11:00. and then the temperatures warm up. we are still expected to make it into the upper 70s to lower 80s as we go into the south bay. in gilroy, up to 83 degrees. san mateo, 74 degrees.
mission district, a high of 71 degrees. 80 in santa rosa. pleasanton reaching 82 degrees. a lot of sunshine today, but our next storm system is developing farther off to the west, and it will be moving in as we go through the week, bringing us some showers as we go into late tuesday night into early wednesday. the showers passing by the bay area fairly quickly, but could be just enough to bring us maybe a quarter of an inch of rain to the north bay. we'll keep you up to date on that and mike's keeping you up to date on this morning's commute. >> we found some low clouds and fog you were talking about. this is san rafael. you don't clearly see those lights. let's show that same area on the map and our road weather index does show that orange right here. remember, our traffic and our weather systems are tied together, so we take kari's data, translate it to what you might find on the road and that's what you saw. over here, eastbound, getting away from the area, there is a crash that just happened. some folks are slowing westbound for the distraction. we do have the bay bridge
metering lights on, so the backup at the toll plaza. both westbound routes showing the build for your traffic flow. pretty typical pattern. those metering lights are turned on tomorrow, not this morning, northbound through morgan hill. so we'll make the comparison. back to you, guys. this is a story you may appreciate. we know scott mcgrew most certainly will. the force is strong at sjc. inspired dream liners made their first trip to the u.s. the plane came from japan, lapded at sjc yesterday. you can see "star wars" is literally painted on the side of the plane to make it look like the popular "star wars" character. the cups and napkins onboard resembled r2d2. the airline also has plans to turn two other jets into "star wars" characters at some point in the near future. >> i can see a big chewbacca in the sky right now.
aimed at ben carson. as nbc's tracie potts reports, all that sniping is not the exclusive property of republicans. >> i was very surprised to see the numbers. >> two polls placed donald trump in iowa behind dr. ben carson. >> he cannot do with trade like i do with trade. >> he's very, very weak on immigration. >> trump even questions carson's faith. >> i mean, seventh day adventists i don't know about. >> carson's response -- >> i don't get into the mud pit and i'm not going to be talking about people. >> hillary clinton struck back at number two bernie sanders. sanders said people need to "stop shouting about gun violence." >> when a woman speaks out, some people think it's shouting. >> sanders says his comment had nothing to do with women speaking out. >> i think what the secretary is doing there is taking words and misapplying them. >> while clinton's got a commanding lead over sanders, donald trump is looking over his
shoulder, and now in iowa, trying to catch up. and might there be more fallout from the retweet that trump has now taken down? it seemed to insult iowa voters. saying that intern has now apologized. >> thank you, tracie. trump will take questions from potential voters this morning on the "today" show. it's all part of a live town hall from new hampshire. matt lauer will moderate questions from the audience. the republican presidential hopeful also takes questions submitted on social media. you can watch it on the "today" show right after "today in the bay" wraps up at 7:00 this morning. it turns out that time had nothing to do with vice president joe biden's decision not to jump into the race for president. biden opening up about his thought process last night on "60 minutes." he says the reason he didn't get in is quite simple. he didn't think he could actually win. but biden did believe there was still enough time to mount a
successful run. the vice president also says there was no last-minute plea from his dying son beau to run for president. he said there was never a run for the kipper kind of moment. hillary clinton is planning another trip here to the bay area. if that sounds familiar, that's because your last visit was about a month ago to the bay area. this reception was to saratoga. one of her stops her last time out. her latest visit will be a campaign cash boost. clinton's first stop will be a week from this wednesday. the home in los altos. the next night, she'll be part of another fundraising event at hall wines in napa. president obama believes america's students and schools, for that matter, are being tested from all that testing. later today, the president will meet with educators in an effort to limit all the time students spend taking standardized tests. in a facebook video, he outlined some of the steps he hopes can limit the testing program critics say weigh too much on schools and provide little
benefit to students. the president says testing time is compounded by preparing for so many tests at federal, state, and local levels. we have an update to breaking news. new video of the moments right after a powerful earthquake. witnesses describe the his or her rescue sce-- the horrific s ahead. >> what firefighters just told us about this brush fire in san jose. and a ferrari in flames. the reason east bay firefighters called this scene so bizarre. "today in the bay" starts right now. and a very good monday morning to you. thanks so much for joining us. i'm laura garcia-cannon. >> and i'm sam brock. we're tracking the weather right now and the roads. mike inouye is closely watching our morning drive. we begin with kari hall as a look at your microclimate forecast. >> some clouds, some fog, and some very low visibility.
especially in the north bay. as we take a live look outside. we see it's 52 degrees. it's 60 in the east bay. it will be another comfortable afternoon with highs in the low 70s and 80s. up to 80 degrees, san francisco. 71. we'll have a lot of sun today. but get ready for clouds and even some rain by the middle of the week. i'll detail that coming up. mike has a live look at the bay bridge toll plaza. >> no surprises. this filled in with lights, and actually a very clear view of the toll plaza. talking about some low visibility. the north bay, all the way from the coast. that's where the orange registers here. as well as over there in rio vista. that's highway 12. watch for that. a smoother drive as you have a typical pattern. some more fog along the coast for highway 1. half-moon bay all the way up into
