evening. we could see a good coverage here as we get a look at what's happening on the peninsula and moving across the bay. as we get in the north bay, some heavy rain right there east of bodega bay into santa rosa. we are tracking this cell that's going to be crossing around that san mateo bridge area headed east. one is also moving from the richmond bridge east. we'll see this off and on throughout the day. a slight chance a few pockets of heavy rain produce lightning and some small hail as we go through the day. one minute, sunny, the next, raining. we can still look as we go throughout the rain forecast throughout the day, going to see even at 3:00 and 4:00, some rain moving through parts of the bay area, but there will be breaks in between. a few of those time periods throughout the day you can get outside and enjoy it, but make sure you are prepared to move inside quickly in case the heavy rain begins to fall. all of this fetes out of here in
time for the weekend. we'll look ahead at the weekend forecast in a few minutes. >> thank you. police are looking for a suspect after a brazen robbery at a tanning salon near the w l walnut creek, pleasanton area. there was a box cutter used, demanding money from the receptionist and grabbed candy from the desk before walking away with cash. you can see that right there. it happened tuesday night on oak road near oak park. the suspect is believed to be 5'11" and 180 pounds. right now, gymnast says her work has just begun. yesterday, the judge sentenced the doctor to 175 years in prison for multiple sex crimes. in an nbc news exclusive, she says this crime extends further than larry nassar and talked about what it was like to address him and the support she
feels from all other victims, and she talked about what's next for her. >> i just spoke, and i felt like i really had to be strung. i feel a sporesponsibility. afterwards, i was sick, even now i don't feel good. it's hard to put into words, but it makes me literally sick, all this stress and trauma of everything, but for that moment, i had to be strong, and -- i'm very, very exhausted from it. when i walked in there, being with this army of survivors, and even -- i didn't know, you know, most of these girls or these women, but i felt instant connections. we were hugging each other. we just really are an army of survivors, and this is just the beginning for us. for so long, they put reputation and money over the safety of athletes, and now the united states, they just spoke out, monday, for the first time.

>> the investigation into the trump administration is speeding up. >> meetings could be days away. >> a few weeks at most. good morning. the president says not only will he answer special counsel questions but would do so under oath, if his lawyers let him. the president is in davos, switzerland at the world economic forum. this is video of him arriving. before leaving, the president spoke about the mueller investigation, spoke off camera, but on tape. take a listen. >> but i would love to do that. i'd like to do it as soon as possible. under oath, absolutely. >> reporter: now, the agreement is irrelevant whether the president speaks under oath. lying to the fbi is a crime, oath or not, ask this man, michael flynn, who is under criminal indictment, not for what he did, but for allegedly lying about it, bringing up an important point.
what exactly is mueller investigating? we tend to use the shorthand, the russian investigation, but really, it's three things, probably. did the trump campaign collude with russia, that's an obvious one. then, was there an attempt to obstruct the investigation itself? this is clearly where mueller is investigating right now, and where flynn got in trouble, and then money issues is the third. this is where maniford got in trouble. the trump interview would concentrate on the center one, at least for now. >> at least for now is right. thank you very much, scott. this morning, president trump hinted he'd accept the immigration compromise in the works. a citizenship ceremony in san jose wrapped up where 75 young people became americans. the new citizens from 17 different countries, one just 14 years old, raised their hands to take a citizen oath and pledge allegiance to the flag.
[ applause ] these 75 young people are the newest americans in san jose. they were aware of the privilege. that is not an option for the 223,000 dreamers. >> so many friends on daca and some are struggling, and i've been following the news. i'm hurt that they are trying to end it. >> as president trump left for davos this morning, he hinted part of the immigration compromise to consider is citizenship for dreamers. >> i think it's a nice thing to have the incentive of after a period of years, being able to become a citizen. >> lawmakers in washington trying to come up with an immigration and budget plan before february 8 deadline. coming up, north and south korea team up for the olympics, but it seems communism regime has other plans. their ninth announcement for unification that have many people concerned. americans breaking the bank while breaking a sweat. the amount of money spent to
north korea is calling for unity welcome back, everyone. we are following a developing story, north korea calling for unity with south korea, not just at the olympics, but a unified korean peninsula. that has a lot of people worried. nbc reports from seoul. >> reporter: well, as the winter olympics approach next month, we've had a fresh call from north korea for a new push towards reunification. again, it's not the first time they've said this, reiterates the message by their leader, kim jong un. calling for leaders all over the world to make a breakthrough towards reunification, and in particular, to turn their backs on foreign help. it didn't specifically talk about the united states, but the idea by north korea is to drive a wedge between south korea and its main ally here, the united states to try, eventually, to get american troops off the
kore korean peninsula. in that effort, a thaw in relations. north korean athletes crossed the border here into south korea. 12 women's ice hockey players, plus a coach, and two officials. they are with their south korean teammates. many of them not happy that it is this late stage there's going to be a united korean team. among those not happy is the american coach of that united team. meantime, the united states has imposed new sanctions on north korea on 16 individuals, most of them living in russia or china, who the united states say have broken the sanctions, and, also, on two chinese companies. that will not go down well in beiji beijing. nbc news, seoul, south korea. right there, the opening bell at the new york stock

it's faster, more fuel official, but forbes reports it's not comfortable. flight attendants say the sinks are so tiny, you wash one hand at a time. passengers also complaining saying that the seats are too small, measuring an inch smaller than standard. >> that's a challenge. many protests against the google tech giant. they are alleged of hording wealth, calling on the company to redistribute the billions they make in profit. yesterday, protests were against the extension into downtown san jose. protesters are asking city leaders to consider nearby restaurants when it negotiates with google on a megaconstruction project. they want google to help with affordable housing and legal representation for those who might lose their homes because of rising prices. >> we need them to step up for us. google is coming to san jose? there are negotiations happening in a back room. the community is not a part of the conversations.
we have serious concerns around the impact of housing, and we need them to take action now. >> google released a statement planning to work with officials to benefit both the city of san jose and those who live there. weather-wise today, wet, but looking behind you now, i don't know. what is that? >> all about where you are. >> right. >> i was looking at one san jose camera, and it was dumping down, like really coming down. >> oh, wow. >> look at the downtown camera, and it's all clear. >> right. >> even in the same city, you have a wide range of weather. that's what we have throughout the day. be prepared for it all. this is the radar. there's a lot of green on here, and i'm even starting to see lightning bolts offshore. that shows we may have cloud to ground lightning as the energy works its way off to the east into the bay area, but we do have a lot of, oh, little individual cells popping up producing really heavy rain, most of it right now across parts of the north bay where we
are seeing in santa rose 1a a l of yellows and reds indicating there's heavy rain for small hail in those areas, and then, also, going across the richmond bridge, all soggy right now. give it a few minutes and it'll be out of there. look at napaville, it's raining in parts of the north bay, and i've been tracking this one, this really heavy downpour over 280 to 101 and foster city moving east near hayward within the next 40 minutes or so. as we did look at san jose, you can see the reason why on one side of the city it's raining very heavily, and then right there downtown, it's not raining at all, and then go to willowsland and it's raining again. expect this quickly changing weather over the next several hours. a live look outside, you can see the beautiful clouds building up there, temperatures in the low 50s, and also seeing that in half moon bay looking offshore,
the temperatures at 54 degrees, and we will see the potential of some of the small hail developing as well as lightning and even as we get into the evening commute, there's a lot of activity here. it is a busy day tracking this rain moving through, and for most of the bay area, we're looking at another .10 to .25 inch of rain on top of the.50 inch we got yesterday. temperatures in the lower 50s in the north bay and mid-50s in the city. 5-7 inches of snow in the higher elevations. this is a live look at squall valley right now. it is so gorgeous and will be so busy this week. 32 degrees is the high temperature, keeping that snow, but we'll start to see some melting going into the enof the weekend with that sunshine and highs in the low 50s. it's going to be a great weekend with some dry conditions, and

a california court case could right now, 11:23, a lot of people already had their coffee this morning, but a california court case could turn every cup of coffee into a new reality. >> that's right. if the judge rules in favor of the group arguing a chemical found in coffee in very small amounts could cause cancer. here's the story. >> reporter: california
consumers are used to seeing cancer warnings on cigarettes and cell phone chargers, desk fans, and checkout stands. if coffee makers including starbucks loses the pending court case, your cup of joe gets one too. >> initial thought was, huh, i mean, what's this mean? what's it about? >> reporter: because of proposition 65, a 1986 law requiring businesses to warn about chemicals that cause canc cancer, birth defects, or other reproductive harm. the coffee has a chemical produced in a roasting process, it's also found in french fries, potato chips, and bread. in coffee, it shows up at six parts per billion, experts say is significantly less than in baked goods. since so many people drink coffee every day, the plaintiffs argue it should be added to the danger list. cancer researchers emphasize that most studies show coffee actually lowers the risk of many cancers. the opposite of what the
warnings suggest. >> what we found in our study was the coffee was associated with a reduced risk of cancer of the colon and rectum. >> reporter: some coffee lovers are not concerned. >> my car causes cancer, my cell phone causes cancer. this day in age, i wonder if everything causes cancer. >> reporter: they won a settlement over the potato chip maker, two defendants in the coffee case settled and posted warnings signs by the coffee pot. the trade group representing coffee roasters released a statement saying, this lawsuit confuses consumers with the potential to make a mockery of the cancer warnings in a time the public needs clear and accurate information about health. >> prop 65 lists compounds simply to draw attention to them, but, in fact, there's no evidence that this chemical causes cancer in humans. >> reporter: the case against coffee roasters and retailers has been brewing since 2010.
the court ruling is expected in the next few months, but even if the judge rules against coffee, those who love their dark roast will not let a new label stop them. >> if i saw the sign, it would not stop me from drinking coffee because i need the coffee in the mornings. >> reporter: nbc news, los angeles. >> i see a lot of people feeling that way. >> yes. coming up, learning more about the southern california children allegedly tortured and starved by their parents. the reason they will likely be split up. coming up after news at 11:00, access hollywood live followed by days of our lives at 1:00 p.m. torturing and confinin3

being nursed back to health. we now know it's unlikely that they will stay together, already separated because seven are adults and six are minors. here's nbc with more. >> domestic violence orders. >> reporter: with david and loise headed to trial, the judge ruled they may not communicate with their 13 children, the alleged victim of starvation, strangulation, and years of confinement. we now know the seven adult victims will be placed in assisted living. the six minors, wards of the state, are headed to foster care. officials say as of now, the children are set to be separated. >> they are incredibly relieved to be in a safe spot and to be taken care of. i think that they are going to be helpful in the trial in the prosecution of the case, but we're going to let them come to this on their own time. >> reporter: after a 17-year-old victim escaped through a window,
the turpins were taken into custody as their frail, pale, and thin children were rushed to local hospitals. these deplorable conditions were discovered inside their home in texas after they moved away. a former third grade classmate from the family's time in texas remembers one of the children was teased because her clothes looked as though they were dragged through mud. i can't help but feel an overwhelming sense of guilt and shame when the classmate your peers made fun of for smelling like poop, literally had to sit in her own waste as she was chained to her bed. >> although we like to believe if you get them in therapy that everything's going to be great, sometimes it's going to be something that they struggle with for the rest of their life. >> reporter: today, investigators are still pouring over hundreds of journals kept by the children, which may have documented years of alleged
torture. >> i believe we'll find evidence of what occurred in that home and from the perspective of the victims, which is very important. >> reporter: a typical suburban home, the prosecutors say was a prison in plain sight. >> god bless those children. that was nbc reporting. david and louise turpin entered not guilty pleas and face life in prison. there's so much evidence, police are still investigating what was found in the california home, and they say what may have also happened in texas. happening now, police in san ramone ask for help to find an attempted murder suspect. late last night, police released this photo of the 21-year-old, trevor barryman, accused of shooting a person last week. investigators say they spotted a car with bullet holes in it with a bloody trail leading away from the carment they found the driver at a hospital where he told officers that barryman shot him. he was last seen driving this 2009 black four-door mercedes,
