80s again today and for the north bay some upper 80s, up to 88 today in sonoma -- rather in napa and santa rosa. we will talk about what's ahead coming up. mike, you're already tracking a crash on the peninsula. >> you can say i'm still tracking a crash on the peninsula. just after midnight over on that side of the bay you see the green sensors there was a crash south 101 at wood side and it's still got activities there. there was a crash, then a car fire for one of those vehicles involved. a lot of activity off of the roadway but your two slow lanes were blocked. so far chp hasn't updated with the all clear so i'm just going to give that note. you see theres no slowing on sensors. east bay approach to the bay bridge we've seen this, a little slowly northbound 880, i think it's a construction crew but i will double-check and let you know if there are any problems for the nimitz. for that very reason we will check back with you. happening today, new security measures take effect for all u.s. bound flights, it could mean longer check in times at
overseas airports. some airlines are telling passengers to arrive 30 to 60 minutes earlier than they normally would. among the top concerns, terrorists who travel through multiple countries before boarding a flight to the u.s. the changes include closer inspections of personal electronic devices as well as beefed up security in passenger areas and around the aircraft, and more thorough interviews with passengers as they check in. in washington today congress could take the next step to approve a budget. >> that's "today in the bay's" tracie potts reports, that may mean money for tax reform. >> reporter: the house is expected to vote today on a budget that includes $1.5 trillion for president trump's tax cuts. >> i did make a couple of calls, i said, fellas, please, no changes, just pass this along. we have to get tax cuts. >> reporter: in a wide ranging interview last night with fox business network's lou dobbs the president insisted his party is unified. >> i tell you there was a lot of
love in that room. >> reporter: despite public criticism from two republican senators. >> i'm glad that jeff flake and bob corker and others are giving voice to some of these concerns that so many of us talk about privately. >> reporter: but republican leaders eager for a win on tax reform would rather see those differences kept private. >> it's in our interest to have party unity so that we can continue to work forward on an agenda. >> reporter: still unclear, will democrats have a say on tax reform? >> if they need our votes we're going to have to have some influence on what that legislation is. >> reporter: the president promised that legislation would not affect 401(k) retirement accounts, but now says they may be up for negotiation. the idea there was some lower tax free contributions to help pay for those tax cuts. tracie potts, nbc news, washington. now to a big development overnight in the story we've been following nor years, it looks like martin beach in san mateo county will remain open to the public.
california supreme court has declined to hear an appeal from the beach's billionaire owner, that means the lower court ruling requiring the beach to be open to the public will stand. for years the beach was a popular public destination, mike systems co-founder bought it in 2008 and closed it to the public. years of legal battles followed, but again, it should now be open to the public. the search is on this morning for two men suspected of killing a man in an upscale north san jose apartment. police release this had video right here showing those suspects and investigators think that they are part of a criminal group targeting high end brothels across the bay area. three other members of that group have been arrested in los angeles county. investigators say that group is responsible for a string of violent crimes that includes an execution style shooting last month off of montague expressway. police say those men targeted brothels all within about 45
hours. new this morning uc berkeley is working to address concerns raised in a recent audit that it hasn't met its own fair wage plan. two years ago president janet napolitano announced plans to guarantee minimum wage at $15 an hour, a recent audit obtained by some news agencies indicates the university hasn't met its own targets. unions that work with the school now question whether the whole idea was just a publicity stunt, but regents insist the school is working to get things right. right now there is more purpose behind warrior star klay thompson scoring during upcoming games. for each point he scores money will go to north bay fire victims. thompson is donating $1,000 for each point he scores for the three games on the warriors current home stand. last night against toronto he dropped 22, that's $22,000 in donations. he will do it again tonight and sunday, thompson says this is his way of giving back. >> i know a lot of people in the north bay come to watch us play,
a lot of them lost their homes and everything they had, even loved ones, so i knew i could -- i talk about wanting to be big in the community, in the bay area, so this is a great step towards that. >> last night four teenagers and two adults whose homes were lost in the fires were thompson's guests. the warriors by the way, won the thriller, the late -- at last steph curry three-pointer helped beat toronto 117-112 after the dubs were down five points with two minutes left to play. >> those guys are so talented. coming up on "today in the bay," if you're looking to apply for a credit card soon, uber has an app for that. find out the perks uber is offering to get people signed up. get ready to shell out more cash during the holiday season not just for the gifts but for the shipping. taking a live look out at fremont as people get moving on this thursday morning.
obstructed justice at the fbi. and in direct violation of the constitution, he's taken money from foreign governments and threatened to shut down news organizations that report the truth. if that isn't a case for impeaching and removing a dangerous president, then what has our government become? i'm tom steyer and, like you, i'm a citizen who knows it's up to us to do something. it's why i'm funding this effort to raise our voices together and demand that elected officials take a stand on impeachment. a republican congress once impeached a president for far less. yet, today, people in congress and his own administration know this president is a clear and present danger who is mentally unstable and armed with nuclear weapons.
and they do nothing. join us and tell your member of congress that they have a moral responsibility to stop doing what's political and start doing what's right. our country depends on it. good morning, i'm landon dowdy live at cnbc world headquarters. markets could open higher this morning after stocks saw their worst day in two months in yesterday's session. investors will get data today on jobless claims, impending home sales plus a slue of earnings results with tech names reports like alphabet, amazon.

spenders and uber is no different. the uber visa has no annual fee and offers $100 bonus after spending $500 in the first 90 days. >> i could see millennials going in for that $100 but then you have to think about that interest rate. >> paying it off. >> inks that, landon. okay. so if you thought bankruptcy would slow down toys "r" us from stocking up on all the toys on your kids holiday list. the vendors have resumed shipping top products to the retailer, this will allow them to ensure toys are ready for the holiday season even though they filed for chapter 11 bankruptcy in december. coming up, on "today in the bay," a cooldown, but will we even notice today, kari? it will only be along the coast. as we start out we are also starting out with cool temperatures. live look outside in palo alto, it's going to be another hot day, we should be in the low 70s but look at where we are already by 2:00, 86 degrees. we will talk about when we will
finally cool down, that's coming up next. here is a nice drive through dublin into pleasanton, a smooth flow for 580 here. i do have to check on a truck, though, there was an earlier fire on 580 a little farther east. plus a video you have to see to believe. when a car comes barreling through this wall of a tavern. it's 4:42. talk about a ride:

and rain in the bay area, but unfortunately there is no rain in the forecast as we take a live look outside right now, getting you started in oakland, looking at oracle arena, it's a beautiful morning, cooler temperatures, but we did set some records yesterday in concord and san jose, actually concord tied the old record set back in 2003 and san jose went one degree above that record and we will still be on record watch today as our temperatures will be well above average. as we start out this morning we are at 63 degrees in san francisco, it's 54 degrees in morgan hill, 55 in livermore and 53 in fairfield as well as napa, then look at these highs today, into the upper 80s again. 91 in concord, 90 in livermore, these temperatures pretty much on par with yesterday, maybe able to bring it down a couple degrees for half-moon bay and san francisco where it's still been really hot. as you're starting out this morning looking out the wintd dough, let's get you dressed this morning, another day for a hat. if you are like me you like to
bring your own shade wherever you go so a big hat will give you shade and something lightweight, light colored to help you out with the hotter temperatures, for the men short sleeves and sandals kind of day. for the weekend we will be cooling down a few degrees by the end of the weekend. as you get ready to head out for that commute in the south bay we will have upper 50s for the next few hours, by 8:00 as that really busy commute starts to kick in it will be nice, all clear, sunny, temperatures in the low 60s and warming up quickly. we're still going to have some warm temperatures tomorrow in san francisco into the upper 70s and 73 degrees on saturday, upper 60s on sunday and as we get ready for halloween it cools down just a bit. as we look at the inland areas it takes a while before it really cools down, but monday is looking really good, we will be back to some seasonal temperatures fore this time of year. now, mike, you're checking in on another vehicle fire? >> that's right. we had the first one over in redwood city and that has has
activity on the shoulder around wood side, you may have a lane still blocked by crews, that's on 101. the other vehicle is a truck that was on fire overnight here, west 580, your commute direction over at grant line road. from what i understand there was no one injured and in fact it may not have been the truck, it may have been the grass on the shoulder that was on fire, but there's still activity there as well. you see slowing, a pretty smooth drive, standard flow past grant line. i will continue to track that and let you know if chp has to clear that larger vehicle. the dublin interchange, castro valley and the dumbarton bridges, an'sy drive. the bay bridge, the maze is moving slowly across the carquinez and benicia bridges at the top. you are at speed for all of those routes and on the rails and rest of the buses for the transit agencies which is a great start for your thursday. back to you. take a look at this, pretty wild new video into our newsroom

were destroyed and 55 more were damaged. also, four people were injured. despite concerns the orange county fire chief says he is proud of the work his firefighters did. >> we've devastated homes are lost. i'm devastated, but the number that were saved, the 300 to 400 is because of people like this. >> today he's expected to call for an independent and unbiased review to help learn if they could have done things differently. it's 4:50. happening today if you ride bart you've probably seen them, people jumping the gate to avoid paying the fares. now bart police are considering taking another step to crack down on the fare evaders. bart officials will discuss an ordinance that will implement a proof of payment. >> he definitely had an escape route planned so, you know, he did have some thought into this.

right now we're taking a live look out at san jose. it is thursday morning as we get on our way. another warm one out there. get ready. a training drill meant to save police officers lives may instead be causing unnecessary deaths of thousands of americans. >> coming up tonight at 11:00 our investigative unit raises serious questions about the drill. senior investigative reporter steven sock has a sneak peek at
what his team found. >> it's called the 21 foot rule and it's been taught by police academies around the country for decades including here in the bay area. this research shows that a suspect with a knife or other sharp object can charge a police officer from 21 feet away or even further and be on top of that officer in less than two seconds, but we examined the last ten years of fbi and u.s. justice department data and we found that in the real world this scenario has never resulted in the death of a police officer. >> the number of cases we've found of somebody with a visible weapon charging at a police officer actually killing the police officer in the united states was zero. >> tonight we take you behind the scenes to see this research in action and we go to one local police academy where they're changing their training to
reflect this new reality. that's all tonight at 11:00 on nbc bay area news. >> and you can see there the investigative unit, if you have a call you can call us 1-888-996-tips. also go to nbcbayarea.com/we investigate. well, in response to the opioid crisis walgreens is now stocking lifesaving medication used to reverse heroin overdoses in all of its 8,000 pharmacies. walgreens announced this week that will stock narcan an fda approved nasal spray. the drug can be used to reverse the effects of an overdose of heroin or oip yoid painkillers. they will sell it without a were ipgs in california and 44 others states that allow it. young hockey players may take longer to recovery after a concussion than previously thought. scientists in canada studied 17 players diagnosed with a concussion during the season. three months later brain scans
showed signs of damage longer than other symptoms had cleared and they returned to the ice. experts say young players may be more vulnerable to second and more serious concussions if they are not fully recovered. 4:57 coming up next on "today in the bay" we will have a look at that forecast with meteorologist kari hall. if you are going to make it a beach day here is look at the forecast for half-moon bay, starts out nice and cool but it's going to be really comfortable later on this afternoon. we will talk about some of the spots that will be heating up once again on the other side of this break. coming from the 49ers - just in th l taking a long look at 580 out of livermore, trying to find the reports of a disabled big rig over at the airway. no showing, nothing shows up on this live scan. we will show you what did pop up a little farther north. a major announcement coming from the 49ers, just in the last 30 minutes. the team getting involved in the gun control conversation. bob redell will have the late breaking details coming up in a live report. a live look outside at the
