tv Today in the Bay NBC November 26, 2018 5:00am-6:01am PST
good morning, it's cold out there. >> it's cold, grab a nice warm jacket. take a look at the temperatures you'll feel as you get ready to step out the door. lot of low 40s in the north bay and upper 40s for san francisco. it's now 46 degrees as you head out in san jose. we will start to see a few more clouds moving in, into the afternoon, and the rain arrives tomorrow, so we'll be tracking some of the showers moving in, as we go through tomorrow morning's commute for the north bay, and the rest of the bay area seeing it by the afternoon. i'll talk more about rainfall totals and what else to expect this week coming up. mike, you're checking out the reports in the east bay. >> that's right. the reports in the south bay held steady, the speed sensors have not been a problem. we're watching crashes 101 and 880 on the shoulder, from what i understand. looking at the approach contra costa county, a smooth flow out of the north bay across the bridges, carquinez bridge and benicia bridge just fine. the bay bridge an accident 124 at broadway, reported off to the
shoulder. the disabled vehicle should not be a problem. also moved the camera here from emeryville. you see some flashing lights that's eastbound 80 passing ashby in the area where we hear a report east or westbound, there's a crash. i don't see any traffic flow interrupted but again, those flashing lights there, and also over there on the westbound side are a reason for concern. i'll track that but so far, do you see the traffic flowing. we'll bring you the latest. back to you. >> thank you, mike. we've seen this in the bay area paying for a faster commute. looking to create carpool lanes on 101 and 280. >> "today in the bay's" thom jensen is in san francisco this morning. >> reporter: good morning, the city or county players are looking at an option to spend about $4 million to look at just how viable these optionsor put carpool lanes or possible toll lanes on two of the wuziest highways, 101 and 280,
converting existing lanes northbound and southbound lanes on highway 101 and interstate 280 through the city, specifically they'll look at about five miles of 101 from the 280 interchange to the county line and the last mile of 280 heading northbound toward the embarcadero into the city. the county transportation authority board approved funding for the study just a few days ago. they'll consider converting some or all of the stretches into carpool lanes for vehicles with two or three or more passengers and drivers who talked with "today in the bay" this summer said something definitely needs to be done to ease these traffic jams. >> that sounds good for me. >> i would like that, yes, because the traffic out here is ridiculous. it's crazy. all these accidents keep happening. >> i think it would help with the traffic most definitely. >> reporter: it has been
unpopular with some of the supervisors and drivers who say they're concerned about creating traffic lanes that are only used by people who can afford to pay those tolls, and also going through city neighborhoods, but those studies also suggested that carpool lanes only might actually cause more congestion. we will likely get worse, because other studies have showed that, over the next 11-plus years, there will be more than 100,000 new vehicles traveling between san francisco and the south bay. we're live in san francisco, thom jensen, "today in the bay." video of an early morning crash, the chp says it looks a lot worse than it was. an suv caught fire after crashing on northbound 880 in san lorenzo a little after midnight. good news here, the driver was not hurt but the chp says the driver was arrested. however, officers did not explain the reason why.

to go light on his sentence. manafort was convicted on eight counts of fraud and pleaded guilty to conspiracy, not related to the trump campaign, but the special counsel could use that to find out what manafort may know about any connections between trump and russia. >> he's going to lay out the facts. leave it to congress to decide whether that rises to the level of impeachable offense. >> there is sufficient evidence this president violated the constitution. >> reporter: the senate is still investigating. >> we're working on the collusion issue now. we're still calling witnesses. >> reporter: when democrats take over in january, they may invite fired fbi director james comey to testify in public. tracie potts, nbc news, washington. at 5:05 this morning, breaking news out of southern california, where an ied, a bomb has been found beneath a car. it was detonated just a short time ago.

they're about to clear those, so all the incidents look like they should be clearing. the last one, there may be a second one over there by university. okay, more homework for me. back to you at university avenue, that seems to be where all the activity is. the rest of the bay, a light drive. back to berkeley in the next report. >> thank you, mike. coming up next on "today in the bay," apple goes before the supreme court, the anti-trust fight that could affect the way you get apps. and cyber monday, off to a hot start. we'll tell you about the big items everyone is clicking on today.

the markets fell on friday as big tech stocks came under a lot of pressure again, and oil prices plunged on continued worries about too much supply and not enough demand. the dow, the nasdaq and the s&p 500 all had their worst thanksgiving since 2011, and the dow had its worst performance on a black friday since 2010. on the watch list this week, reports on housing, consumer confidence and third quarter gdp. apple is going before the supreme court to defend the way it sells apps against claims by consumers it's unfairly dominating the market. apple is seeking to end an anti-trust lawsuit that could force the iphone maker to cut the 30 it, commission it charges developers as apps whose products are sold exclusively through the company's app store. apple says it doesn't own the apps or sell them, but the lawsuit claims apple has a lot of control over the process, including a requirement that prices end in 99 cents. consumers may click their way into the record books today. cyber monday is expected to
generate sales of $7.8 billion, that's according to adobe analytics. that would be up about 18% from a year ago, and would make it the biggest online shopping day in the u.s. retail experts say electronics are big items on cyber monday as stores offer better deals on laptops, game consoles and other devices than they do on black friday itself. and those are your cnbc business headlines. scott, if you're wondering, my size is 75 inch flat screen. you need to get me that, just putting it out there. >> fair enough, making a note of that. >> thanks, frank. another hit for this morning for the recently fired ceo of nissan. mitsubishi board members removed carlos ghosn from his role as chairman, this comes in the wake of nissan firing him last week, after an arrest for alleged financial misconduct. mitsubishi, nissan and renault all share a global alliance, so for now, mitsubishi's current ceo will serve as the carmaker's interim chairman. ghosn is still chairman and ceo
at renault. it is quarter after 5:00. elon musk is opening up about how his car company almost collapsed. in an interview that aired on hbo, the tesla company founder said his money was bleeding money like crazy as it worked through the model 3 production rampup in the spring and summer, revealing it almost died before meeting its model 3 production goals. musk who also founded spacex says there's a 70% chance he will personally use his spacex rocket to fly to mars. when times are good, u.s. companies often decide to splurge with an office holiday party. >> if your company is skipping festivities you're not alone. low employment and until recently stocks riding all-time highs, economic conditions are ripe to celebrate, but experts say only about 65% of all companies will do so this year. the reason has less to do with
money than legal liability that's grown out of sexual misconduct scandals and the me too movement. >> companies are worried about potential lawsuits stemming from inappropriate behavior that happens typically at holiday parties, when it's afterhours, when there's alcohol flowing. >> some companies are still going ahead with the office holiday party, deciding instead to simply cut out the alcohol. be responsible as well, if you're an employee. >> i like the office parties where you get to meet the spouse or the partner, because it gives you insight into the person you work with every day. i think that's great fun. >> i'd rather skip the party and just get a bonus. >> then i'll bring my spouse in to get the gift card. >> okay, enough of this. >> whatever, i met your husband, i don't need to anymore. bring on the money. >> right. and so we're starting out this morning grabbing a jacket in
that holiday spirit. we're starting to see the clouds rolling in this morning. although for most of us you're seeing mostly clear skies, as we head out around concord, 45 degrees, clear skies and look at the clouds that start to move in later on this morning, as temperatures head into the low 60s by noon. as you get up and get ready, you need a little bit of extra hair spray, our relative humidity at 89% and it's going to be one of those days where it starts out humid, and then we'll see it drying out, but we'll still have some clouds overhead. here we are, taking it into about 8:00 tomorrow morning and we'll see some rain moving in for santa rosa and farther to the north, and then as we go into early afternoon, the rain starts to reach into san francisco, oakland, and then approaching the south bay. we will see the scattered showers continuing into the evening, a little bit of a break through wednesday morning, and then a round of heavier rain arriving by wednesday night. this one looks to be a little bit more stronger, as far as the
winds and the rounds of heavy rain, and we'll see that into early thursday, before we take a break on friday. so during this time frame, we have two storms moving in throughout the week, and we're looking at rainfall totals for the north bay over an inch, maybe even an inch and three-quarters in ukiah, while the south bay measures about half of an inch of rain and maybe lighter in some spots. for the sierra, it starts out as rain. we're looking at nine inches or less and the nine inches will be for the very high elevations. as we go through the week once again, we have the first round of scattered showers moving in tomorrow, heavier rain wednesday night into thursday. as we look ahead to the weekend, there will be another system approaching that could bring us some rain for saturday into sunday. so it looks like it starts to get pretty active here, as we go throughout the forecast. showers today or rather showers tomorrow. we're dry today, and our temperatures will be cooling off as well.
look at how cool it will be this weekend, only some mid to upper 50s, and some rounds of showers moving in. we'll talk more about that coming up, and mike, you have the crashes. have they cleared out from the south bay? >> they cleared from the south bay, kari, so 880 and 101 cleared from the reports, and no slowing there. no slowing over most of the bay, except for out of theality mo a 580 a build toward north flynn. moving the map up, where we have the crash, the continued issue at berkeley, and you see the slower drive from golden gate field, things jam up right about university, where we continue to show our cam camera, and the flares blocked off two lanes of westbound 80, that's your commute direction, this flood of cars, the jam right here because you're funneled down to just three right lanes. that is a problem in your commute direction. this crash, major damage but no major injuries reported. second issue on the frontage road, west frontage road to be specific, that's the name. we have a disabled vehicle there. it's been there for about the same amount of time as the
crash, that's for folks alongside the freeway as well. i'm not sure if chp knows about that, given the report, someone called in to make sure they have that information. b.a.r.t. through the area, no delays there, no delays for any of these rail systems. we just did a story how b.a.r.t.'s trying to reduce the noise, that's great, nothing to complain about right now. the bay bridge toll plaza shows a lighter flow of traffic as they've opened all cash lanes now. they're ready for all the traffic, which has held up right about there on university area and that will once it releases get over here and fill in that toll plaza. back to you. >> thank you, mike. come up, concerns for an east bay city, we'll tell you about the crime that happened in one woman's home, shocking the whole neighborhood. former vice president joe biden visiting the bay area. the places you can hear him speak. berkeley police are tryin
