good morning. it is 6:26, a beautiful sunrise out there in dublin, looks beautiful now, but there could be some rain in the forecast. good morning, i'm michelle roberts with vianey aranas.
6:27 am
>> north bay is going to be the first to see that rain and as far as the south bay, it looks like we do have a good chance of seeing some rain into the mid afternoon hours. now, as we begin to start our day, we are also going to notice that we're starting to cool off across the bay area, 56 degrees right now in the peninsula, they've actually already seen a bit of a downpour down there. san francisco, also expecting to see some rain pretty soon. the north bay is really going to get hit today. the south bay, not so much. however, we do have the possibility of some pretty strong winds. we are currently under a wind advisory. that is going to remain in effect until about 6:00 and what that means is that we could be seeing winds between 20 to 30 miles per hour with gusts that could hit 45-plus miles per hour and the north bay has already seen some pretty strong gusts so we're going to keep an eye on that. >> be careful on the road. thanks. rain and foam do not mix. an accidental spill is making national headlines. crews worked late last night
6:28 am
clean upg near san jose national airport. take a look at the white blob of foam that inspired the hashtag fomnado yesterday. a fire alarm accidentally triggered the flame retardant to fill the building. >> the concentrate is a carcinogen and an irritant. however, diluted like it is, it's not an irritant to human skin but if it gets in your eyes, it could create a problem. >> the hangar is operated by signature flight supply. a company spokes person says a mechanical issue is to blame. a south bay business that advertised as a haven for undocumented immigrants may have been targeting them. james lopez is under arrest for allegedly scamming undocumented immigrants at his law office in campbell. nbc bay area first broke this
6:29 am
story on twitter. lopez was allegedly forging documents and charging money for immigration papers that don't require fees, charging unsuspecting clients as much as $1,200. santa clara county sheriff's office is hoping more victims will come forward. and coming up this morning on "today in the bay," your hardware store shopping experience will never be the same. robots are now serving customers at a store in the south bay and there are more on the way. that plus all your top stories coming up at 7:00. right now, back to "the today show."
6:30 am
good morning. strange bedfellows. donald trump and mitt romney meeting today in new jersey to discuss a possible role in the trump administration just months after the two traded harsh attacks. the vice president elect was the subject of election when he attended "hamilton" last night. >> we, sir, we are the diverse america. who are alarmed and anxious that the administration will not protect us. travel disaster. the first big winter storm of the season causes hundreds of accidents and two deaths. it is moving to the northeast for a busy weekend for people getting a head start on the thanksgiving vacations.
6:31 am
and is ignorance bliss? the guy who says he still doesn't know who won the presidential election. clinton or trump. we'll talk to him exclusively today, saturday, november 19th, 2016. ♪ >> celebrating 27 years at the "today" show. >> all the way from p.a. >> spending my 13th birthday at the "today" show. >> you're looking at 50 years of friendship right here. >> hey, "today" show! >> we are happy to be here with that crowd and you inside. good morning. welcome back to "today" on saturday morning here in front of the big apple with a lot of friendly faces waving hello to everybody back home. colder weather is coming. we hope to get ready to bundle up. >> i love when they are outside.
6:32 am
they have programming outside. they see themselves on the monitors, they just go nuts. >> hello, everybody. >> it is like an nba game. you see it on the jumbotron. >> nicest people. we have to begin with news. president-elect donald trump with just over two months to go until he takes the oath of office is at his new jersey golf club today meeting with former presidential nominee mitt romney, this one day after he agreed to settle a multimillion dollar lawsuit against trump university. nbc's kelly o'donnell is in bridgewater, new jersey, near trump international with the latest. good morning, kelly. >> reporter: good morning, stephanie. this is a chance for the president-elect to do house cleaning and turn his weekend home into a home office. you're right, he will be meeting mitt romney today. that is significant because of the fierce criticism that romney levelled at trump during the campaign season and upon his election. it was romney who wished him the best and hopes for how he will
6:33 am
lead the country. this is a chance, aides say, for them to share ideas and talk about things and maybe not a cabinet post, but they leave open the door for that possibility. in addition to that, trump settled three lawsuits related to trump university. the amount attached to this is $25 million, which will be distributed among 6,000 former students who were litigants in these cases. there is no admission of wrongdoing. the timing is notable. one of the cases is supposed to advance later this month. and this is sort of clearing the decks before he moves in to the white house. unusual for trump to settle. that is not his typical way of handling business. this takes this issue where there's been so much criticism off the table. another unexpected thing happened when his vice president-elect, the man he asked to run the transition, also in new york visiting and taking a little time for himself and family.
6:34 am
mike pence went to see the broadway smash "hamilton." as he walked in he was noticed by others. there was applause and also some very noticeable boos as he took his seat in the theater. after the production, something highly unusual. the star of the show, brandon victor dixon who plays aaron burr, after the curtain call, spoke on behalf of the whole cast addressing mike pence, asking him really with a message about inclusion saying many americans are fearful about the new administration and how it will handle civil liberties and imploring him to work for all americans. really different. a piece of the show that had never been seen before. it gives you a sense of the politics of this weekend and this transition. we expect that donald trump will also have meetings with some of the top advisors here as well. we expect to get briefings from senior staff about the upcoming picks and other decisions they have to make with about eight weeks to go.
6:35 am
steph? >> i like hearing new jersey white house. kelly o'donnell, thanks so much. the first big snowstorm of the season working east this morning. up to 2 feet of heavy know snow already covers minnesota. michigan expects to get hit hard today before 50-mile-per-hour winds and whiteout conditions move into the northeast. minnesota says police report 340 crashes so far. a maryland woman is recovering from a bear attack in her own driveway. a 63-year-old karen osborne got between her mother bear and cubs. it will bear mauled her and left her helpless on the ground. >> stomping and kicking on the ground. like he was getting ready to attack me again. please tell my husband i love him. >> she survived with a broken arm and wrist, plus more than 70 stitches. now let's head to the plaza where dylan has another check of the forecast. dylan? >> guys, sorry i'm taking selfies with the girl scouts

6:42 am
and sign. people have been respectful. >> joe, why are you doing this? >> it was never a plan. i was invited to a gathering at a friend's house on election night to sit there with everybody else and gnaw my nails to the quick into the night. i'm just beat to a pulp like we are all are. the next morning, i'm an artist and writer. i had a lot of creative work. i worked in my studio all day. at the 24-hour mark, i wanted to give myself 24 hours of blissful ignorance. i talked to my daughter near atlanta. she said you know you may be the only person in the country other than those in a cave or something, who still doesn't know. >> that's so cool. if you are limiting newspaper reading, you don't know the martians landed in new york either. when will you find out, joe?
6:43 am
>> i don't really have an exit plan. there has been talk of throwing a gender reveal party. rather than is it pink or blue, is it blue or is it red? >> if you had to guess, who do you think won? >> i'm playing the 50 yard line on that one. when it is revealed to me who the winner is, i will reveal who i was rooting for. >> can we be there when you found out? i believe you. you can live in a place -- is it a rural place? brunswick. i don't want to say isolated. >> it is on the coast of georgia. it's just south of savannah. >> okay. >> i believe you. >> i'm living in my little bubble of sol titude here. it is rather pleasant. >> joe in his bubble of bliss.

#joedon'tknow. >> some call it the bubble of ignorance. >> bubble of peace. >> thank you so much. >> this one's for the guys out there. have you ever wanted to wear sweat pants to work? >> of course. >> all day? all night? >> girls too. >> in all fairness. women have athleisure. fruit of the loom has a collection of theme sweat suits from the corporate cowboys and the knob's sucker. t and the country club collection. we happen to have some. check them out. they run around $49. >> the country clubber. >> this is very cool. >> let me see. is this comfortable, guys? >> fantastic. >> you could do a high kick in

6:52 am
baby. >> this flexi bath folds flat. you can store in your bathtub or side of the tub. this is the newborn insert. it keeps them upright. you can sponge bathe them. this can accommodate up to a 4-year-old child. my best advice is get in the store to feel things and touch them. tryout the strollers. lift the car seats. >> as overwhelming as the process can be, you break it down? >> you look at a sea of products, but not everything is an prppropriate for you and you lifestyle. we will narrow it down. >> now i want to do more shopping. if i could get someone else to do this for me, that would be great. >> oh, yeah. >> more comfortable there. i tried to pocket some items. they are too big. >> you need them all. >> it is fun to watch you live through this. the rest of us stroll down
