6:06 am
authority which is eis enrvelly santa clara city council and the 49ers. there have been curfew complaints and acts like ed sheeran and the rolling stones say it's not worth it. the stadium authority ended the team's management deal over living wages for employees and booking non-nfl events that lose money. in a statement, the 49ers accuse the city manager of retaliation saying in part "her proposal is purely retaliatory, and will result in increased costs, lost events and further erode the public's trust in her abilities. she is abdicating her fiduciary duty by destroying a city asset for petty, political vendettas. sports fans feel they're stuck in the middle of the fight. >> a sports team in a city can do great things for each other when both parties are willing to work together. >> reporter: the stadium authority's press conference is at 11:00 this morning here in

6:09 am
and there is some rain coming in. we'll have to plan around the showers passing by especially in the north bay. it's been very spotty and this is not as widespread as we saw on monday, but still some wet weather coming through that's going to make those streets a little bit more soggy, as you get ready to head out there. it's dry elsewhere and in concord, the rain holds off, we'll see some mid-60s to start, 75 degrees at 1:00 and it keeps it cool and breezy, a chance of showers moving through with all of our high temperatures much cooler than normal, only reaching the upper 70s and low 80s in some of the warmer spots. the coastal temperatures will reach into the mid-60s. mike, you're checking back in on what's happening on the peninsula. >> that's right. you were talking about the move-ins at stanford university off-ramp in the area, that's moving smoothly as we had a few minutes ago the last of the traffic breaks through this area. so now north in through palo alto and menlo park a smooth drive once again. we shouldn't have any more traffic breaks for the morning there. we have a crash though 101 at
6:10 am
sierra point parkway, involves a vehicle off to the right shoulder and that's just fine. the other crash "a" street off of 880 the on-ramp at "a" street. build into walnut creek for south 680, where you see a little slowing and we still have that big rig on the shoulder west 37 but things haven't gotten much worse out of vallejo, jammed up toward mayor island which is typical. the backup at the bay bridge also typical. you see fastrak lanes moving and that's good news. emphasize here the big advantages if you carpool like these folks. back to you. >> thanks, mike. >> 6:10 for you right now. what's old is new. next on "today in the bay," the help traditional retailers may be getting from the youngest shoppers around. mortgage rates fall to a three-year low, but they're going to be tough for californians to get. i'll explain why, when "today in the bay" continues. ♪

bloom energy ceok.r. schrader. the fed will announce its decision on interest rates today, and jay powell will hold a press conference after that announcement. the fed is under huge pressure from the white house to lower rates but it's very unlikely or really impossible that the questioned is going to lower rates as far as donald trump wants it to. president trump who really should not be telling the fed what to do the aall wants zero percent interest rates. the fed is not going to do that. also, the president wants to refinance government debt, but that's not how that works. the fed does not set mortgage rates, at least not directly. it's complicated. that said mortgage rates are falling near a year low, 30-rate fixed 3.5% nationwide, it's tougher to get in california because this is assuming 20%
6:16 am
down. speaking of not living in california, the san francisco clothing company chubbies is leaving san francisco bound for austin, texas. it will take about 40 employees with it. we have seen a number of apparel and equipment companies, sports equipment, that sort of thing leave the bay area, which makes a lot of sense. we have just this tremendous amount of talent in all places, but in tech in particular, so if you're doing something that's tech heavy, you probably have to stay. if you're doing something else that's really cool, you can really leave and find better things for your employees outside of california. >> right. businesses look for the tax benefits as well. >> tax benefits, cost of living, just the overall environment, austin would be a fabulous place to take your company. >> interesting to see. >> thanks, scott. 6:16 for you right now. the future of brick and mortar stores may lie with generation zers, people ages 14 to 24. they love shopping at actual stores according to a new survey

6:18 am
and helps keep you ready for the day. here we are at 9:00, we're seeing the rain moving through napa and moving in to san francisco. we go towards 10:00, 11:00, it's still spotty and then moving into the parts of the east bay as well as the peninsula, and then making its way to the south by 1:00 to 2:00, it's moving in to san jose, and still by early afternoon, it's moving through the south county, so this one moving a lot slower than the system we had on monday, but we will all clear out as we go throughout the day with breezy nds. it also looks very light in terms of rain, not everyone will measure rain, but where we do, it will be a few hundredths of an inch, just enough to make everything soggy. a live look outside in san francisco, with a nice clear start to the day, as we get the kids up and out the door for school this morning in the south bay, expect those temperatures will be right at about 60 degrees and they may have lunch inside, once that rain starts to move in around 11:00 to 2:12:00. when you pick them up we have a
6:19 am
chance of showers in the south bay with high temperatures reaching the mid-70s. we'll see highs up to about 80 degrees in antioch, one of the warmer spots, as we go towards the end of the week, this system moves out. we do keep the cooler weather, a breezy northerly wind but it will start to heat up going into the weekend as high pressure moves in and slight cooling sunday into monday. our ten tours still going up and down, so we are in the upper 70s today, and it's going to feel nice and cool, but then look at saturday, we're up to 92 with sunshine, and then coming down a few degrees on sunday. so a lot of changes here over the next several days. mike, so far the drive looks pretty good. >> it is. a pretty smooth drive around most of the bay. you have your slower spots but a pleasant drive because there aren't any major crashes right now. looking at 680 through the tri-valley, pleasanton, i guess it's appropriately termed and southbound 880 where we had that crash on the "a" street on-ramp. the build at the san mateo
6:20 am
bridge i'll that you in our next report, slowing of course westbound. here slow as well southbound vasco. when you narrow from two lanes to the last one lane in toward the stretch toward 580, that's where we see the slowing and vasco at communo diablo, crash no major injuries there. a build for bay point and concord and you'll see 242 and south 680 start some more slowing through pleasant hill and also the maze itself, the build in the upper east shore freeway, standard and this is the only section where we see anything changing from green to orange and yellow the slower speeds. the richmond-san rafael bridge over to the north bay without any problem, taking you under the water, b.a.r.t. no delays. over the water or on the water, the ferry system as well and of course on the roadways, no delays reported for your other major transit agencies. back to you. >> thanks, mike. 6:20 for you right now. if you live in the bay area long enough you experienced years where it's dry or really

all week long nbc news along with nbc bay area are bringing to light the impacts of climate change. >> this morning we take a closer look at the phenomenon known as precipitation winlash. >> meteorologist kari hall delves into why california is seeing more extreme swings of rain and droughts in years to come. >> it's part of life in california to have long periods of time without rain and heavy deluges in winter, but now climate scientists are predicting that due to a warmer planet, california will experience precipitation whiplash, that means we'll have worsening droughts, which will alternate with extreme rainfall in the winters, and instead of having our rainy season lasting from october to april, that heavy rain will all fall in a shorter period of time, causing major flooding. i spoke with climate scientist daniel swain who came up with the term precipitation
6:25 am
the term precipitation whiplash. >> even though precipitation isn't increasing or decreasing on average, we're seeing more potential for drought and more potential for floods at the same period of time, so what we end up, what we may end up seeing from year to year is an increase in the propensity to go from very wet conditions to very dry conditions or vice versa. >> swain adds we need to focus on water storage perhaps using uifers instead of reserv. tomorrow on "today in the bay," we'll take a closer look at the warming pacific, we'll show you how it's already having an impact on the marine life in the bay area and how dire the situation really is. >> nbc news correspondent kerry sanders as well will continue our climate in crisis coverage this morning on the "today" show. he is talking about it all and taking a look at the amazon rain forest and how changing conditions, inuding those recent devastating fires are having a global impact.

6:30 am
of sonoma and central county. the rain is spreading into san francisco, parts of the east bay by 10:00 to 11:00 and the south bay early this afternoon. mike, you have a crash in berkeley. >> our buddy ben in toc operations center found it there, one vehicle on the shoulder. there was a quick traffic break that got released from university and that's why we have all this traffic past us. that's good news. if that's the only vehicle moved in this area with better lighting here, the university overcrossing, things should start to move quickly coming down with the backup into berkeley out of richmond for west 80. we'll continue to track that. more traffic will hit the bay bridge toll plaza making things slow down a bit there, already with the metering lights on. the rest of the bay shows a smooth drive. i'll show you the san mateo bridge, crowded, headed west a little slower now. >> thanks, mike. breaking news a tragic house
6:31 am
fire in san francisco overnight, two people were actually pulled from the burning home. >> sadly, one of them died. thom jensen is live in the terrace neighborhood. a neighbor told you more about the people who lived in that home? >> reporter: yes, just a short time ago, good morning. a man who lives on the other side of this house the ohm at 66 delano avenue, he's known the family for a little more than 20 years, this is about a block or so from bell bow with a park. the neighbor woke up to the home in flames at about 2:00 this morning and he could hear the new england woman in her 20s who lives here calling to her father. a door was too hot to open, he smashed a window and smoke poured from the house. he yelled at the young woman who grew up with his son to come out but she never responded. the man said it was too dangerous for him to go inside the home.
6:32 am
>> i heard her screaming dad and i was screaming camella, come out. she grew up with my son. 23 years old, just started law school at usf so it's horrible. >> san francisco fire has only confirmed a woman who lived here died and a man is in critical condition but not confirmed their names or approximate ages. a dog also found dead inside the burning home is a puppy that the dad and daughter had recently adopted. back live arson investigators were on the scene earlier today and are expected to come back later on this morning to find an exact cause and the area where this fire started but the fire
6:33 am
chief told us not to read anything into that because that typically happens in every fatal fire. no suspicions here to report. we're live in san francisco, thom jensen, "today in the bay." we have more breaking news to tell you about. president trump just announcina he's slapping more sanctions on iran after an attack on oil facilities in saudi arabia. he instructed the secretary of treasury to increase sanctions but the news is just breaking so we don't know what the sanctions include. saudi arabia was expected to directly blame iran today for a raid that hid two oil facilities on the arabian peninsula. iran denies involvement. there are reports the trump administration is mulling a military response. democrats though have been quick to condemn any attack. 6:33, a 14-hour-long police standoff is now over in the south bay. started about 12:30 yesterday afternoon on madeira avenue in san jose.
6:34 am
the suspect stayed inside and wouldn't come out. he was taken into custody without incident shortly after 2:00 a.m. ride share safety certainly top of mind as lyft faces a new lawsuit and uber adds a new safety feature. bob redell is live in walnut creek to explain more. >> reporter: uber added this new safety feature called ride check. as you can see in this video released by the ride sharing service this ride check app basically lets you do three things. lets you know if the ride has gone off course, it will let you know if there's, it will activate if there's been a stoppage for an unusual amount of time, and it will also activate when you've been in a collision. something doesn't seem right, the ride check activates in the app and gives you and/or your
6:35 am
driver letting uber know everything is okay and if it's not, you can use the emergency button, or report the issue to uber safety line. uber might follow up by phone and if there's a crash, uber can help expedite insurance claims. uber installed an emergency button inside that allows to you digitally share info with 911 dispatchers, that is not new. uber's main rival lyft has a similar 911 button and expected to release a similar ride check feature later in the year. according to an online publication a woman is suing lyft for failing to keep passengers safe after she says she was kidnapped at gunpoint by her lyft driver in new york and then raped by him and two other men, back in 2017. when she complained to lift, she says she received a canned response that read "apologize for the inconvenience that i had been through" referring to her. she claims lyft allowed the driver to remain on their platform under a different name.
6:36 am
lift said the victim did not report the rape as a safety incident, rather an indirect route asking for a refund and didn't become aware of the rape until reported in "tthe press. there were 18 lyft drivers and 103 uber drivers last year who were accused of sexual assault or abuse. reporting live here in walnut creek, bob redell, "today in the bay." >> thanks for the latest there, bob. 6:36 right now. former president barack obama is visiting the bay area today. he'll be a featured speaker at an invitation only event hosted by san francisco tech company splunk. city councilmembers voted yesterday to study the idea of turning dixon landing road into barack obama boulevard. one reason why, the road actually leads to the sunny hills community and city leaders say it is one of the first integrated neighborhoods in america. now to decision 2020, happening today, democratic
6:37 am
presidential candidate beto o'rourke will be in the bay area. he's visiting san quentin prison in the north bay today, then heads to oakland for a discussion about equity and justice. san francisco's central subway is way over budget, according to "the examiner" this morning. the project is nearly $55 million in the hole. the sf mta may soon have to consider whether to pay for the central subway's final days of construction with funding meant to aid other transit projects. so far, delays on the central subway have pushed the project back by three years. and happening today, greyhound bus also start running again at the sales force transit center in san francisco. you may recall service was stopped after fissures were sound in the support beams. repairs have been made to the building and the transit buses are already running through that area. 6:37 right now. checking that morning commute, pretty green behind me right now. >> it is green and the traffic maps green. kari's map the green radar means
6:38 am
more rain and she'll talk about that in a second. a crash north 280 had me concerned at lawrence expressway. four vehicles involved but no major injuries and they are off to the shoulder. we'll track that as the rest of silicon valley builds but it's a typical pattern, same thing typical slowing for vasco, two lanes to one lane and toward 580, it's about 40 minutes right now from marsh creek road down to 580. a typical pattern, keeping our eyes on things, crowded in the last few weeks there, as well as westbound highway 4 crowded, standard through bay point. the arrow shows you the earlier crash bogged down the east shore freeway. the live shot shows you the crash cleared from the roadway at university but the cars have not cleared. >> no, certainly not. a lot of traffic out there right there. the commuters probably looking forward to the weekend, right? >> so are we. >> yes, it's going to be a warm weaken weekend, going back to the warm weather after the rain passes. i wanted to show you the radar
6:39 am
one more time as we see the rain light, spotty moving through the north bay and that will continue to make its progress from north to south. as we head into the weekend, we may be making plans on friday heading out to the tet and moon festival in san jose at east bridge mall, starts at 3:00 in the afternoon and it's going to be perfect weather with highs in the low 80s, cooling down as we go through the evening and into the upper 60s and then on saturday, we will have some warmer weather in the valleys reaching up to 92 degrees, the bay up to 85 and 74 degrees for the coast. you may head to the coast on saturday, but for the sunday forecast, it's going to be a little bit cooler, so the valleys will reach into the mid 80s. the bay up to 79, and 72 for our beaches. if you're going to head out this saturday, and do some volunteering, the creek to bay volunteer day will be happening all over oakland. we'll start out with low 60s and go to 71 degrees at 11:00 and then 75 degrees at noon.
6:40 am
there will also be some shopping in pleasanton at the alameda county fairgrounds, if you're going to the night market we have great weather for that, just a little warm to start but of course as the evening goes on, it's going to feel much more comfortable. we'll talk about today and our temperature trend, coming up in three minutes. >> sounds good. thanks, kari. 6:40 for you right now. still ahead this morning, the update we expect today on the big fight between the 49ers and the city of santa clara. the team's angry at the stadium authority and what a key vote last night cou mean for the future of concerts and other events in the south bay. and overnight a high-profile democratic donor arrested after another person was found dead at his california home. what police accuse him of doing. president trump just a short time ago announced a new national security adviser that would be number four, we'll take a look at that. let's take you out to the big board. not much going on up on the markets. dow industrials just mildly lower. you're watching "today in the

6:44 am
