at 47, napa 55 degrees. san francisco 50. it's going to be another warm one and possibly more records set just like we had the past couple days. but we will have a little bit of slight cooling through the rest of the week. we've reached the peak of the high temperatures. still very warm out there today. we'll talk more about this and a look ahead as we go closer to, what is it, valentine's day. forget the holiday. let's check in now with mike to see what's happening on the roads. >> better you than me. over here in the bay area, the area past the coliseum, traffic flows well. northbound 880 nicely towards the bay bridge where the meters lights are on. southbound picking up volume. the san mateo bridge to the south, the bay bridge and the maze, heavier than last week on a tuesday. more cars heading towards san francisco but nothing dramatic. a build past golden gate at the top of your screen. move your map down looking at the slower drive towards hayward
and the san mateo bridge. west 92 picks up the volume. there's the trivalley, the dublin interchange picking up a lot of traffic as well. this is where all the activity happens over here. the peninsula side not a big deal. we'll take a look at our live camera and san jose that earlier burst of traffic let up right now. holding steady about 15, 20 minutes we'll see the burst start to slow and a bigger look at the south bay coming up. >> thanks, mike. if you want to take that valentine on a trip, new tests under way, our guys in the bay area showing the scientists might be able to prevent one day jet lag. >> a new job opening perfect for someone in silicon valley. you cannot wear a hoodie. i will tell you about it coming up in business and tech. harmless prank or serious assault. the charges a man now faces after police say he toss and alligator through a drive-through window. to see the light... ==vo==
. .l like to travel, when it comes to jet lag researchers believe they may be able to see the light. a study finds administers short flashes of light when people slept help prevented jet lag. tended to delay fatigue 90 minutes than those exposed to continuous light. researchers suggest flashing light therapy may be used before the night before you travel, the night before, to trick your brain's biological clock into
adjusting to an awake cycle. >> unless you want to sleep through that. a job opening this morning that is sure to go to someone in silicon valley. >> very important fellow looking help for cyber security. >> he would be a boss. probably work out of his home at pennsylvania avenue. the. the wa-- the president wants to create a new position for top cyber security official. that job posted this morning and he wants to fill it within 90 days. the president's budget goes to capitol hill today and it includes billions more in cyber security spending. in a very unusual move republicans say they will not meet with the president's budget directors to go over the proposed spending bill. the first time in 41 years that's happened. both sides disagree on the priorities but for the last four decades they've at least been able to talk about it. yelp reported its financials monday showing it lost money again. yelp is a fantastic service.
i use it all the time. it doesn't make a profit except for one brief moment in time it has never made a profit. to be fair, it lost less this quarter. wall street still suffering the dow fell as many as 400 points during trading monday before recovering a bit. still closed to the negative. oil prices have freaked investors out and this morning the international energy agency says there's even more oil out there than we thought. that could drive prices and markets lower. let's leave you with something happy. tons in redwood city they will relaunch the lights show at the san mateo county history museum. new design. so here is images from some of the past things that the artists have done. there's one at -- show at 7:00 tonight outside the san mateo history museum. another one at 8:00. it's great technology. it's super fun to watch. like i said a new design. >> wow. who pays that bill. that's a big one. >> art. >> almost christmas like in terms of the lights. a story right now with you
might say teeth to it. but fortunately no bite. left a florida man in custody. >> it all started when you're hearing this right, when the man actually tossed a live alligator through a drive-through window. file this story under only in florida. that's where police recently arrested a man for tossing a wild gator from the back of his truck into a drive-through window as the server had her back turned. luckily no one was hurt. the man's parents said it had nothing to do with getting cold fries or getting overcharged. they say it was a prank that went a little too far. >> he's a prankster. he does stuff like this because he thinks it's funny. he's not a bad kid. he's a stupid kid that did a stupid prank. >> despite mom's passionate defense the man faces aggravated assault charges and unlawful possession of an alligator. >> is there a lawful possession? >> an alligator was not hurt and is now rooming in a nearby canal. >> i've heard the milk shake
ones that people do. >> but not an alligator shake. >> they throw like chicken. >> how do you shake the alligator. it weighs 800 pounds. how does he lift it and chuck it through the window. >> we must investigate. >> but don't try this at home. >> yeah. >> we would like to get out of the home today because it's going to be nice weather. >> yeah. i think you will be spending plenty of time outdoors today. a nice start this morning. as we get a live look now at the bay bridge, to fog, mostly clear skies and it is cool. so a light jacket needed. and as we go into the day, we are expecting another warm one. we have several high temperature records set yesterday. here's a look at just some of them. these are the high temperatures that just smash those old records considering that they should be in the low 70s. we were in the upper 70s in oakland. san jose up to 78 degrees. the record was 72. check out santa cruz. awesome beach weather. we just need some rain in here. looks like as we go into the
next several days it will remain dry but not as warm. a look now in san jose. 48 degrees. san carlos 48 and napa 55. san francisco at 50 degrees. heading hour by hour in san jose, it will be another warm one. and warming up quickly it goes from 49 at 7:00 to 59 at 9:00, 68 degrees at 11:00. you see ta trend there. we will be hitting the upper 70s once again. we will have more clouds moving in this evening. and that's a hint that things are about to change. high pressure is now sliding off to the east. that's what's kept it so warm. but we will have some weak and dry cold fronts moving through unfortunately these fronts as they pass will only bring an increase in cloud cover and not a drop of rain. may be a few sprinkles possible friday night in the north bay. the rest of us. not seeing a drop of that. so into the next five days, in san jose, we will be up to 78 degrees today. compared that to the average of
63 degrees, these temperatures are more typical of may and june. rather than early february. as we go into the rest of the week, it will be in the low 70s. saturday looking at 71 degrees. so our trend will be going down. not only in the south bay but the rest of the bay area. in the peninsula, 69 degrees by thursday. san francisco dropping back into the 60s. we come down from those 70s and bring it into the 60s. still upper 60s and still well above average. and no rain as we go into the next several days. let's check in now with mike to see what's happening on the roadways. >> we don't have a lot of problems kari but more cars than last week. a lot of folks took a break from driving into the city we will talk about that in a second. i promised a look at the south bay. here it is a little slowing from 101, 87 not yet. if you leave in the next ten minutes you are beating traffic for the south bay and then the build is on. crash 101 on the expressway, may be an issue.
got rumor of something going on there. i will track it for you. meanwhile southbound 880, union city and hayward, 680 both heading towards fremont, we have the build, typical pattern for a tuesday. slowing westbound 92. we'll talk about that in a second. i want to show you the rest of the bay, build for walnut creek, 680 out of concord and pleasant hill, the upper shore freeway shows slowing. highway 4 out of bay point towards concurred as well. the bay bridge toll plaza your metering lights are on and the backup out of the maze for the west 580. we slow you the san mateo bridge with a live look at westbound picking up the volume slowing just a tad bit on the flat section. no problems on the foster city side. 101. look at 101, palo alto, a nice easy drive northbound past university towards san francisco remember that closures around the super bowl city area continue all week because they have a lot to clean up and equipment to move. back to you guys. >> won't be as smooth there. thank you very much, mike. coming up, the new request
attention after a chokehold by a new york city police officer led to the death of eric garner. the death actually spawned protests nationwide. san jose police say they never permitted the use of a chokehold but also did not have a rule expressly forbidding it either. it was formally banned with one exception they may use the chokehold to defend themselves in a life or death situation. happening today, the man accused of stabbing a chp officer in san francisco will be back in court. noelle allegedly stabbed the officer several times including in the neck near a homeless encampment along an on ramp to the bay bridge. it happened a week ago. the chp says the officer has improved and is no longer in critical condition. the motive for the attack still remains unclear. also in san francisco, growing outrage this morning over a proposed clinic for a paroled sex offender. that clinic would be on church
street. s stephanie chuang is live in our newsroom. many turned up at a packed meeting to express their concern. >> they did, sam. and some parents and grandparents brought kids to the meeting to really fully express their point saying sex offenders even those trying to get better are not welcome in their neighborhood. >> not our neighborhood and not any other neighborhood. it's not appropriate for a residential neighborhood. >> reporter: the operators of the sex offender counseling center called sharper future has a permit to move into 100 church street. its office at market and van ness is set to be demolished and the new location is next to the triangle muni stop a popular transfer location. a lot of commuters. the clinic would serve nearly 100 paroled sex offenders who live in san francisco and attend court mandated counseling. a clinic open three days a week. operators trying to assure neighbors last night everything would go smoothly. >> we know where they are and they're coming and going and they're engaging in a
therapeutic relationship which makes them safer. >> it's enough going on in the neighborhood right there already. we don't need nothing extra. >> reporter: and many are pointing an angry finger at the property owner, a well-known care facility for aids patients in the city here. a board member told the crowd he thought because it planned to replace one medical tenant with another it would be a clean process. some outraged because neighbors saying you isn't do community outreach. board of appeals considering a stop next week. stephanie chuang "today in the bay." >> thank you very much. 6:26. coming up as the zika virus continues to spread the president has a specific request from congress. >> the polls officially open. in fact they opened at midnight in new hampshire and votes are pouring in in the first primary of the year which is under way. we're live in the granite state with a look at how all of the candidates are faring so far.
>> i'm kris sanchez in east san jose where police are investigating the shooting of a young woman. they have a suspect in custody. we'll tell you what we know coming up. >> and the cleanup will happen this morning after enormous fireworks fire in san jose. what started it all. a live report coming up. got a tip for nbc bay area's investigative unit call 888-996-tips. or e-mail the firstname.lastname@example.org.
good morning. a post super bowl world on this tuesday, thank you for joining us. i'm sam brock. >> i'm laura garcia-cannon. let's get a quick check of the forecast with kari and another nice day ahead. >> beautiful day once again. it is cool so grab a jacket before you head out. and also the sunglasses. you'll need them later today. it's now 48 degrees in the south bay and peninsula. looking at highs again in the mid to upper 70s. we'll be at 73 in san francisco and the north bay. east bay 76 and the trivalley today up to 78 and possibly more records falling again this afternoon. i'll detail that in a few minutes. getting busy on the roadways. >> we're looking towards the maze. a lot more drive nears san francisco than this time last week. the east shore freeway and a slowdown out of the maze. the map and upper east shore
slowing as well. the map shows you through oakland slowing 880 towards the san mateo bridge. and in the south bay your break might be over the build is on we'll show you those speeds coming up. back to you. >> something happening now, a pivotal point in the race for the white house and the nation's first primary of the 2016 campaign season. officially under way. right now, in new hampshire. voters are making their way to the polls as we speak. >> we have team coverage from new hampshire this morning. andrea mitchell will break down the democratic race but let's start with "today in the bay's" tracie potts in manchester where there's a toss up for second behind donald trump. >> no question about that. let's talk about those republican because there are so many of them who are sort of bunched up in the polls right behind donald trump. marco rubio and text cruz vying for second and maybe ohio governor john kasich and jeb bush, chris christie is a possibility,' any of them an
analysts tell us could end up second or fifth we don't know because of how tight the polls are. the other thing we're watching here is turnout. we've already seen people lining up very early. we visited one yesterday. they're expecting a record turnout at the largest district here in manchester. we're told as you look live at the polls here where people had been standing outside when the doors opened this morning, the secretary of state says that they could top half a million people, maybe 550,000 people in this state voting today. that would be a record. it would mean two out of every three voters here came out to participate in this primary. republican and democrat. but the republican race is going to be a horse race. it will be interesting if we're here for a long time waiting on the results could mean that it's very, very tight. sam and laura, back to you.
>> thank you, traci. on the democratic side of the race, bernie sanders dominating hillary clinton in the polls. the new hampshire is where clinton became the comeback kid in 2008. as the "today" show's andrea mitchell explains clinton is hoping to do it again. >> reporter: good morning, laura and sam. finally primary day here in new hampshire and hillary clinton already at a polling place today said she will be working until the last vote is counted. if the polls are correct, this will be a setback for her. bernie sanders has had a lead for months but she is trying until the last month to at least narrow the gap into single digits and then heading to south carolina, the next primary, after a caucus in nevada, she has a much better chance at least because of her stronger operation there and the minority voters who have been traditionally her support. here in new hampshire this is going to be a reals test for her against bernie sanders. he has been enormously popular. her only hope really there are
40% of new hampshire voters who say they are independent and so many are late decideders she is still at least hoping for some kind of an upset after what happened in 2008 when she was the surprise victor. a lot more coming up on "today." thank you. of course you can find all of today's results as they come in on nbcbayarea.com and we'll have updates starting on nbc bay area news at 5:00. laura, we've been feeling the burn on the stock market in recent days and weeks. a live look right now at what's going on here. the dow jones is down about 130 points to start off the day. scott mcgrew was telling us yesterday it dropped almost 400 before recovering a little back. we're going to check the with scott to get more context on business and news in about ten minutes. in the meantime a developing story the cdc issues its highest possible alert for the zika virus. today, president obama asking the congress for $1.8 billion in emergency funding.
the money would be used for mosquito control programs, vaccine research, and improving health services. some of the money would be diverted to central and south america where the virus is spreading rapidly. there's growing concern ahead of this year's summer olympics in brazil which is the epicenter right now for the zika virus. >> it's very difficult to give advice to people who have devote the last x number of years training for that and what we can do the cdc and nih can do is give them the facts and evidence-based information. >> the cdc now reports that 51 known zika cases in the continental u.s. zika is not a big health risk for most people but it can be extremely harmful for pregnant women and their babies who could suffer neurological complications or born with abnormally small heads. a bizarre and brazen robbery on a local highway. police say two masked men forced a couple to pull over, then took
their money and phones at gunpoint. it happened fundamentsunday on between san mateo and san gregorio. >> i call the police station and ask if there is a cop behind me because you never know. >> police say the suspects were driving a black crown victoria similar to a squad car shown in this picture. another crime along our coast that could be linked to that highway 1 robbery. two armed men targeted a jewelry story the gold works jewelry store on main street hit about 10:00 a.m. yesterday. here's a look at the surveillance video. you can see one of the suspects. police say this is the second suspect who appears to be on the lookout. and illegal fireworks show in the south bay became dangerous. it happened last night in the parking lot of the grand century shopping mall in east san jose near 101 and story road. as you can see, even a tree caught fire. here's a live look at the
shopping center this morning where fire crews were able to put the tree fire out but look at the damage left. we're told hundreds of people gather here every year to celebrate the lunar new year. >> this happens every year, of course. so we know what we're doing and we ended up having the information given to all units so we're all quite aware of it. >> officials want to remind you that fireworks are illegal in san jose. pete will join us with an update for the story in less than 20 minutes. mounting concerns right now over crumbling concrete inside the bay bridge's island tunnel. see the hole left behind by the two-foot chunk of concrete that fell directly into traffic. this caused minor damage when it came down ten days ago, but nobody was hurt. it is, though, sparking a conconversation about whether this could happen again. we show this image to a met lurnlg klg engineer who believes its determination was caused by a rusted support beam. >> it's concerning because the steel provides a lot of surface
area for corrosion to form. >> it's one of the things that we're investigating. as i said at this point we're not ruling anything in or out. >> and caltrans will not speculate on a fix until they're convinced that they know the extent of the problem. in the meantime you can drive through that so be careful. want to check the forecast. you may be looking at the sun in your eyes get the sunglasses. >> sunglasses today. a light jacket this morning. absolutely. short sleeves this afternoon. and we're looking at temperatures now in concord at 44, oakland 47, 48 in san jose. it will be another warm one. possibly some more record high temperatures set. gilroy up to 76, san mateo 74 degrees, the presid yo 69 degrees. in the low 70s in napa as well as 76 in oakland, pleasonton today looking at 78 degrees. our temperatures cooling down slightly as we go through the week. i'll detail that coming up in a
few minutes. an update on what's happening on the roadways with mike. >> we tried to warn folks about 15 minutes to get out before this happened. and 15 minutes later this happened. 20 minutes actually. there's northbound 101 at the 680, 280 interchange. sun coming up and looks beautiful. look at the map, that's not the only issue for the south bay. the slowing here and for capital expressway, 101, 87 shows the building into downtown. north 85 at winchester a crash reportedly involving three or four vehicles. the distraction as the bulk of the commute starts to hit for 85 should start anyway. we see that complicating things. meanwhile a typical build for 680 south and 880 south both pushing towards free month slowing towards the dumbarton bridge and highway 92, the san mateo bridge. another map before i show you the bridge because we have slowing also for disabled vehicle as you come through richmond on the center divide. a distraction and slowing out of
hercules and pinole. the bay bridge metering lights and the east shore heavier than last week at this time. the san mateo bridge westbound across the span a slower drive develops. slowing on the peninsula at 101 because of all the people heading over there. thanks. celebrities have been hanging out in the bay area for the past week. for super bowl 50. many have stuck around to play a little golf. >> do they have their clubs sent with them. how does that work. apparently they have people for that. the pebble beach pro am in monterey. the celebrity shoot-out starts at 1:30 this afternoon. players from the giants an the 49ers are participating in this week's event. some other names to watch out for, oh, he's bringing golf back. justin timberlake, mark wahlberg, ray romano and bill murray to name a few. big names. former 49ers coach jim harbaugh and niners legend steve young also going to be there as well. >> it's nice to see some of the guys return here. >> coming back here. >> it's fun to go out there.
6:40 right now. take a look at the blurry photo. it's actually taking the internet by storm not because of where it was taken but by who took it. >> and we're watching the markets this morning. man, it's just been a tough 2016. out live to the big board. dow industrials losing 76 more points. we've been negative all week people are not cutting apple c-
e-o tim cook a lot of slack. . ite the op folks this morning not cutting apple's ceo tim cook a lot of slack. quite the op it sit. he's feeling the wrath of the web because of one photo. here's the picture that tim cook shared with his nearly 2 million twitter followers. as you can see he was on the field at levy's stadium at the
end of the sooeb super bowl. perhaps the commotion and excitement caused him to take a blurry snapshot. the twitter sphere roasted cook for that photo and he's deleted it. >> despite cook's efforts there were fewer tweets about the super bowl this year than last. >> this is the first time we've seen that. >> it is. twitter and facebook have been getting more and more popular. marching up, more people joined. this year fewer tweets and posts about the super bowl, the first time ever that the number has gone down and they were down significantly. what caused it? well, it could be the teams. as year was the patriots/seahawks. the teams this year may be less popular. tv ratings for the game were down slight as well. seems like a good theory. the teams' fault. investors are nervous about twitter in particular, peaking. those who are using twitter but very few people are joining. i don't know what to make of this but cnbc are reporting
sales at red lobster are up after beyonce mentions the restaurant in her line. the headquarters for red lobster is on the embark dare ro in san francisco. dow industrials down about 80 points, the nsa falling as well, it has been a really rough month so far for the markets. we do remember while the stock market investors do lose their money when the stocks fall, obviously, right, the money doesn't doesn't cease to exist. it moves into gold, moves into bonds. the dollar gets stronger good for americans traveling overseas, not good for those coming to visit america. >> go to red lobster. >> or new orleans. >> laura's buying. she's been diversifying her portfolio. >> lent is coming. probably why. long john silver will be popular too. filet of fish anyone. >> there you go. happening now, live look from above new orleans this morning. yep, we were talking about it.
