steps of this movement, which has grown from frisco 5 to frisco 500 now. we have more and more people joining us. >> well, on friday protesters took over san francisco's city hall causing thousands of dollars worth of damage to windows and metal detectors. the city hall is where demonstrators plan to gather tomorrow at 8:00 in the morning for what they say this time will be a peaceful, silent protest. turning now to the forecast, changes on the way for the workweek. here's a live look outside right now in oakland. whoa! packed to the approach to the bay bridge. a lot of people heading to the city for a mother's day dinner. peggy? >> happy mother's day to all. >> yes, enjoy the nice weather as well. rob mayeda is here with what is going on. the weather is making for a nice evening around the bay. sunny skies from san jose to the bay. low 70s around downtown san jose and still low 70s near santa teresa, 73 degrees. san martin to the south, 71. in dublin, temperatures in the
upper 60s. the mid-70s near brentwood and 67 degrees right now in livermore. there again is san francisco at 64. clear skies right now. not exactly warm around the peninsula and san francisco. if you're seeing the numbers in the low to mid-60s, the winds are onshore. but watch this, the high pressure is starting to build in, which means our days are going to turn warmer. but there is a bit of a catch to that warm up. and that will be the low clouds and fog which could get pretty thick tonight. notice the timeframe here passing midnight, low clouds starting to fill in through the delta, tri-valley and into the south bay. and it could take some time for the low clouds to clear. so could have an impact on tomorrow morning's commute as we see patchy fog and mist to start. and then as the clouds clear by midmorning, the stage will be set for a warm up that will put some spots in the 80s. this week we'll show you that in the seven-day forecast coming up in a few minutes from now. >> the 80s, rob, thank you so much. an extra special mother's day for courageous kids and equally courageous moms and dads. today hundreds of kids with

reluctance towards trump. >> i don't think it's personnel, it's deep concern about what kind of leader he would be. >> reporter: while bernie sanders is still on the campaign trail, clinton is looking ahead to her expected battle against trump. knowing he has to do something to unify his party, house speaker ryan and other gop congressional leaders are meeting with trump this thursday and talking strategy. jennifer johnson, nbc news, washington. well, one of donald trump's supporters is promising to take action against one of his critics, sarah palin told cnn today that house speaker paul ryan's career was, quote, toast. last week ryan failed to endorse the presumptive gop nominee. palin threw her support behind donald trump back in january. now she's vowing to help paul nolin take paul ryan's seat. ryan is due to serve as chairman of the republican convention in july. >> interesting stuff.
nbc's jane yamamoto explains the controversy. >>reporter: a muslim student wearing a hijab in the yearbook, but this 17-year-old high school senior says that's not her name and she's extremely sad, disgusting and embarrassed. >> no student should have to be falsely associated with a reprehensible terrorist organization. >> reporter: the council on american islamic relations or k.a.r.e. received a call from the teen's family concerned for their safety. >> they are in the election season right now and unfortunately there's been a lot of homophobic rhetoric. and we want to make sure this incident is not a reflection of that. >> reporter: the school yearbook tweeted we are extremely sorry for what occur in the yearbook. it is our duty to represent the students of los osos high and by mis-tagging and giving the incorrect name we failed to do so. >> there are many things we could do. the whole yearbook could be reprinted. >> reporter: a student named isis phillips reportedly
transferred to a different school and the principal apologized saying the mistake is under investigation. the joint union school district is also investing to figure out how this happened. >> it could have been an oversight or it could have been a biased motivated deliberate act. >> reporter: not releasing the teen's real name but on her facebook page she wrote, apparently i am isis in the yearbook. the school reached out to me and had the audacity to say that this was a typo. i beg to differ. let's be real. >> the teen and her family plan to meet with school leaders tomorrow. the massive wildfire now seen from space. nasa releasing these pictures here of the fire burning out of control in canada. take a look at the photos here. look how massive it is. this was shot on may 4th three days after the flames broke out. the other two photos taken on friday. the fire is spreading. this was taken on may 6th. it could be months before the fire is under control.
the flames now cover close to 500,000 square miles burning in the western province of alberta. the fire did major damage to the city of fort mcmurray. amateur video here shows the flames and how quickly they were spreading. in fact, they ended up engulfing the city there. more than 88,000 people have been evacuated. more than 1600 homes and buildings have been burned. >> as of yesterday, we had 34 fires still burning in the province. but i can happily report as well that 31 of the fires are either being held or brought under control. >> despite progress there's fear that the fire could double in size and reach the neighboring province of saskatchewan. now this match shows here how much of the area the fire would cover should that happen. the fire is expected to be the most expensive natural disaster in canadian history. the insurance costs are already running in the billions of dollars. right now officials say the power grid is damaged and water is undrinkable in the area. so far no deaths or injuries have been reported. peggy, thank you.
let's check with meteorologist rob mayeda right now as we look at a picture of sunol. it is a big difference from yesterday. yesterday the overcast and even this morning we had some drizzle and rain in spots. but things are getting better down here. >> the weather around here has been relatively cool. 69 degrees in san jose. very interesting on the fire threat at fort mcmurray there in canada, the temperatures in alberta have been even warmer than the bay area. we had numbers in the 80s over the last couple of days. good news along the firelines at fort mcmurray, temperatures are cooling off. as we switch to the satellite and radar view, you can see the upper level system moving through. not dropping really anything in the way of rain, though, but you can see how the hotter temperatures now have moved off to the east out towards portions of saskatchewan. so things are starting to cool along the firelines but it may take weeks if not months for the rainy season to kick up towards september and october before they see relief in canada. closer to home, we have had showers the last couple of days. we have had drizzle around with
low clouds. now the skies are looking hazy in dublin at 71 degrees. around the tri-valley, over to oakland, 65 degrees. the wind still coming in off the west so staying relatively mild. 64 with a lot of sunshine. and slow-motion traffic there. sunshine is across the golden gate bridge. more sunshine for you down to santa cruz, 64 degrees right now. patchy low clouds, mist and drizzle this morning. as terry pointed out, look at sunol here. the time lapse, light rain and drizzle for the morning and eventually partly cloudy skies. and still some clouds over the hilltops. we still have instability out there with relatively cooler air aloft. the heating of the day, the clouds build up on the hilltops. showers and thundershowers finally starting to wind down for the sierra as the upper level system slowly moves out of the four corners region and is setting off severe weather into texas and oklahoma. that will continue into tomorrow. but we'll start to see more of high pressure's influence on the weather. for one thing, at least for the morning hours, we'll be stuck with patchy, thick fog at times
through 10:00. check out how san jose and the santa clara see low clouds through midmorning. then during the afternoon like today, the sunshine wins out. one exception to the dry rule around the bay area tomorrow or up to the north bay could be lake county. could see stray showers popping up here with the heating of the day for areas north of sonoma county. morning temperatures in the low to mid-50s with a lot of employee clouds. don't be surprised if you find patchy fog and mist for the morning commute. then lunch time, numbers in the mid-60s for the bay area and 60s and 70s for high temperatures tomorrow. mid-70s closer to los gatos, 73 in san jose. still 60s for san francisco. but we'll take another day for things warm up near san francisco. to the north bay, highs in the mid-70s and low to mid-70s near the tri-valley. as high pressure starts to build in, the warmest days of the week. you can see the seven-day forecast at the bottom of the screen. this should be wednesday and thursday. temperatures on the rise, downtown san jose, near 80 degrees.
places south of san jose could be in the low to mid-80s for wednesday into thursday. look at san francisco, starting to climb on up, close to 70 degrees. and then for the tri-valley in dublin, three days of the upper 70s. maybe close to 80 on wednesday. then everyone begins to cool down as you approach friday. we're going to see temperatures cooling off, sierra temperatures, too, we'll check that out. the three-day outlook there shows you almost 70 around lake tahoe. gorgeous conditions everywhere around. but here's the change we'll see later on this week, the area of low pressure approaches the coast. that will bring our temperatures down. no rain for us, but a cooler trend as we get into the beginning of next weekend. back to you. wow, put the sweaters away. still ahead, counting down to rio. >> there are many other clubs in america. >> the community center has been an international pad for olympic tennis players. >> and the new movie that had
