6:04 am
something like this. people really don't realize it takes years and it all comes together in a matter of days. the military in charge here in washington telling us they had 4,000 people involved. laura? >> it should be spectacular as well. what a wonderful tribute. i'm sure that is planned for today. tracie, thank you very much. there are several changes because of the funeral. today is a national day of mourning. you will nod receive any mail, post offices are closed. they may do some package deliveries. stock market is shut down today. most federal offices as well. some banks and courts will also be closed as well. make sure you check ahead. new this morning, it is a new day in downtown san jose. that is because about 12:30 this morning, the city council voted to approve a land sale to google that paves the path for a massive campus downtown. "today in the bay" kris sanchez live in san jose downtown with
6:05 am
how all of this went down, who got what they wanted and who was left out, kris? >> reporter: hi there, marcus. clearly, the city and google are pleased with this deal. they've been working on it for months now, perhaps even years. they got what they wanted. there were a lot of folks who were speaking in public comments who were talking about the impact this would have on their city and their quality of life. take a look at this video. some protesters, eight of them, were arrested. some of them had chained themselves to their chairs and had to be taken away in cuffs. there were folks talking about how this would impact their city and they're talking about the impact on housing prices and employment as well. though other people saying this is a good thing for san jose. >> jobs for a bunch of people. that's not going to happen for minorities. >> it's something that san jose
6:06 am
has been wanting for decades. for google to choose a transit-rich area to build out and especially right next to our downtown, it's going to be transformational. >> reporter: the google development could create 20,000 to 25,000 jobs. a and the construction jobs as well. the campus is to have housing and retail and hotel space and in contrast to apple's headquarters in cupertino that are kind of walled off from the rest of the city, this campus is meant to be open and accessible to the people of san jose. the mayor told us 25% of the housing would be affordable and rent restricted. a lot of other details still have to be worked out, including a community benefits package and also a downtown sea that could generate fund for be construction. that is coming down the road. we posted the story on
6:07 am i also tweeted out the link on twitter and put it on facebook in case you want to read more about what this means. it really is a big deal for san jose, not just the downtown area, but the downtown area and beyond. in san jose, kris sanchez, "today in the bay." >> all right, kris. the meeting lasted past 12:30 this morning. but our team works around the clock for you. we actually pushed a breaking news alert for you on the phones when it came down. be sure to download our free nbc bay area app. this way you will not miss any big stories as they happen. also new this morning, self-driving cars developed by dpoog google are available for paying customers. >> the news broke in the last hour. bob redell joins us live in mountain view. where can people hail one of these vehicles? >> reporter: laura, marcus, not here in the bay area, at least not yet. waymo 1 is the name of the company. it's owned by alphabet based
6:08 am
here in mountain view. it's going to start in the phoenix metro area starting this morning. you might have seen the autonomous minivans driving around the mountain view area during test runs the past several years. the driverless vehicles, they use sensors and software to navigate the roads and avoid obstacles like other vehicles and pedestrians. in this video handed out by waymo, you can see how the new service will work in arizona. users will call for a waymo, using an app. very much like uber or lyft. agree to the price. whammo, there's your waymo, in theory. the service is only available to just over 400 people. those who have been part of the early rider program since april of last year. the company also says that there will be a driver in the car at first as this program rolls out. they're just doing that to supervise the vehicles. waymo says its autonomous cars which have been in testing in the real world since 2014 have driven 10 million miles on
6:09 am
roads, 7 billion miles in simulations. still, when nbc bay area spoke to people recently, a number of people were uncertain, even about the new driverless technology. waymo 1 plans to expand its service. not clear when it will come to the bay area. reporting live in mountain view, bob redell, "today in the bay." >> he'll be waiting for it, bob. >> yes, we will fl. let's check the forecast right now. hopefully people not waiting out there because of the rain. >> it's here and it's trickling out of the area. but still bringing with it plenty of moisture. we're going to keep the rain and the showers through the end of the mid-morning and then into the early evening it will start to clear out. here's a quick look at the microclimate highs. temperatures will be in the 50s. 53 degrees for livermore. 56 for concord. 54 through napa. the coast, low to mid-50s. as far as the bay area skies, we'll keep that scattered rain
6:10 am
early in the morning and by early evening, a spotty chance through the afternoon. we'll start to see the rain tim inish and we'll keep a lot of that cloud cover. bundle up and keep the umbrella on hand. tomorrow is expected to be a drier day before more rain moves in. i'll talk about that in a bit. we got to send things over to mike. >> giving us a break. no matter what. the peninsula, this is what you want. we have a smooth drive right now through palo alto. we'll see this grow. northbound, you can get off there. continue to change the config e configurati configuration. as you get to the freeway from willow, you're going to enter the freeway from your right whether northbound or southbound 101. we shout that out from time to time. looking at the green highlighting around the bay, wet road ways from overnight rain and the green sensors pretty much a green smooth flow of traffic. little build for san jose and hayward over there. upper east shore free warks crash at pablo. sound like everything is to the
6:11 am
shoulder. i'll double-check, guys. >> sounds good. the real estate wire fraud. the huge loss for bay area families and what you can do to keep yourself safe. on market as well. really tough day yesterday. i'll show you where your money went coming up. right now, a live look outside of capitol hill. president bush's casket is set to leave soon there. our live coverage continues all morning long. it is 6:11 right now. you're watching "today in the bay."
6:12 am
they say, at a certain age you just stop caring. i wonder what age that is. simply ageless foundation with olay. tones, hydrates, and reduces the look of wrinkles. from covergirl.
6:13 am
6:14 am
(time check ( it is 6:14. now we're tracking the last of those showers that kind of swept in through last night. this is a live look at downtown san jose. a quick look at your santa clara temperature trend. we'll keep light showers in through 10:00 a.m. temperatures in the 3550s and i will move out. 30-plus miles per hour winds. i'll have the details on more coming up. looking at the travel times creeping up at the top of your screen. 35 minutes from highway 4 to the bay bridge. we do have a crash in san pablo. we'll track that as well as the other conditions of that wet roadway. not a major problem here in fremont. good wednesday to you. markets will be closed today for the national day of mourning. tough, tough day on the markets yesterday. dow fell nearly 800 points.
6:15 am
nasdaq much worse off when you look at it from percentages. now, these ups and downs are largely artificial driven by president trump's insistence earlier this week that he had made a deal with china when he really hadn't. nothing on paper anyway. the two countries didn't even agree on what they agreed on. so a rally on monday turned into a selloff, especially after a series of tweets from trump including this one that starts, i am a tariff man. it goes on to say we are right now taking in billions of tariffs. make america rich again. what he's not telling you or possibly doesn't understand himself is i don't know why he bragged about this. when america collects billions in tariffs, we're collecting them from the receiver. when we put tariffs on foreign goods, those tariffs are collected from americans. the billions that he's talking about right now are paid by americans. not by chinese. >> the new trade cease-fire, in
6:16 am
the case with kim jong-un, they walked away with entirely different understandings and that was on paper. the trade deal is not the only thing bothering wall street. we're seeing a flattening between the interest on short-term and long-term bonds. we talked about this yesterday. it could be worse. but it's enough to put traders on edge. as the flattening of the yield curve is usually a associated with an upcoming recession. now, it takes a while and not everything is a sign of an upcoming recession. the fact that we're this many years into a 7 to 9-year cycle. we'll continue to watch this. >> the tariffs, that gets passed on to the consumer. >> absolutely. when a chinese product comes into america, you're paying the tariff. >> they pay a tariff, though and then it's handed down to us. >> when a ship comes into los angeles, somebody in los angeles is paying that tariff.
6:17 am
not in beijing. >> a lot of bay area companies as well. thanks a lot. a follow-up this morning. styrofoam -- >> no more styrofoam there. going the way of the plastic bags. supervisors unanimously approved a styrofoam ban for all unincorporated areas, most cities have similar bans. merchants have a six-month grace period to get rid of their existing supplies. find a way to take home that food. >> waking up to wet roads out there. >> yeah. but the rain is start to go diminish. the scattered showers getting lighter and lighter. we're still, of course, tracking those 50s in the forecast. so, so far right now, you can see mobile doppler radar, not as active as it was at 4:30. still seeing a couple of showers moving through petaluma. the fairfield area as well. in through concord right now. we saw this line of showers push
6:18 am
through san francisco. that's that rain that you were seeing on the bay bridge when mike was showing the cameras. it might push more in towards oakland and hayward. oakla oakland, get ready for that. santa cruz getting some showers. driving through highway 17. that's a tough commute especially when it's raining. slow it down out there. we know it gets pretty dark and foggy. we're not seeing a lot of fog this morning. san jose's temperature trend, even though not a lot on the radar in the south bay, we'll keep the possibility of on and off showers. a lot of moisture off to the coast. that's going to bring in the chance for that. by 10:00 a.m., you'll notice we'll keep the cloudy skies. we'll get breaks in the sunshine. the skies will clear and then it will seem like it dries out into the evening hours. as for concord as well, we're ex pecksi pekting to see the cloudy skies. higher totals expected for the santa cruz mountains. not a huge rainmaker out of this
6:19 am
system. the hour by hour wind speeds, i want to showcase that. it's still gust any santa rosa. if i take you through the afternoon, you notice it's going to be pretty breezy to windy. it will die down into the evening hours. through the early morning and the mid afternoon, pecks ekt 15 to 20 mile per hour winds. drying out. tomorrow and friday, we'll catch a break on saturday. on sunday, into the evening hours, another system that swoops in and not only is it going to bring more rain, it's going to drop our temperatures down as well. that rain is expected to carry over into monday. monday is probably going to be our heaviest rain and the heaviest commute. about 55 degrees. into tuesday, we see the system clear out. so far right now, we officially welcome the rainy season without a doubt. how are the roads, mike? >> sometimes wet in patches. your radar shows more activity. vianey says watch out oakland. all the water is crossing over to 880.
6:20 am
right now the roadways look smooth. in fact, as we pull out the radar, that blob coming towards oakland. the south bay was hit early. santa clara doing just fine. north 101 shows that build just a bit. gradual build at 6:20 in the morning. we have slowing for the upper east shore into san pap lblo. looks like the vehicles made it out of the roadway without major issues or slowing. contra costa county has wet roads or slower conditions. let's show you how we're timing out. as you get out of antioch towards lafayette, and the walnut creek interchange, we have an hour and seven minutes. i can save you -- not i. our partners at waze is save you time. they can cut you through and past highway 4 and 680. they'll help you out whenever, wherever you're driving. back to you. >> thanks, mike.

slicker roadways and smaller puddles. be careful. all around the bay, you see that radar activity. the very nee-- rain is a concer because there was a fuel leak after an earlier crash. i'm continuing to track that. more slowing through san pablo. that crash is still over on the shoulder near the exit. the rest of the bay and the east bay. hayward, as they have a typical pattern. back to you. >> thank you very much, mike. back live to washington ahead of the funeral for president george h.w. bush. first breaking news for you locally in napa right now. police investigating a deadly officer-involved shooting. it happened near the intersection of lincoln. police officers had responded to some sort of domestic altercation a little before 2:00

6:34 am
yesterday, just 11 names are now left on that list. also new details, santa clara county appears to be one step closer to saying bon voyage to its -- one of its commuter airports there. supervisors yesterday agreed to refuse new federal funding for reed hill view airport there. that would have required keeping the airport open for at least another 20 years. as it stands, the airport is currently locked in to operate for the next 12 years when its current federal grants expire. the county will explore alternative uses for that land and upgrade facility at the commuter airport in san martin. it's 6:34 right now. new this morning, b.a.r.t. launching a new smartphone app to help riders catch their flights. you can purchase tickets in advance. the app will help you calculate the fares based on the length of your trip. if you buy the tickets on the app, you'll be discounted 25%.

6:39 am
you can see moisture off to the coast. again, another system is trickling in this weekend. let me go over the timeline. coast bay and inland for saturday, temperatures in the 50s and a couple of 60s on map for inland areas. it will be kind of a culmination of sun and clouds. so it won't be completely sunny in all spots but as the increase of cloud cover rolls in as we head towards sunday, this is when we get another system that rolls in. the system is looking to move in pretty late on sunday night. that's why it put evening rain through here. what the system is going to do, drop down some of the inland temperatures back into the 50s. we'll see an increase in temperatures in towards thursday and friday as we begin to warm up. then the temperatures will once again drop towards sunday night. that's just something that you have to plan for if you're going to be out late for sunday night. back to you. >> good to know. 6:39 right now. coming up next, local stories. including the fate of a proposed catholic high school in morgan hill. what may be decided. why the plan could have a prayer
