temperature trend. you probably noticed yesterday we had a solid mix of sun and clouds, some areas were cloudier than others. 49 degrees by 9:00 a.m. and we'll be in the 50s but today we will be a few degrees warmer. now a look right now at satellite radar, if you look off in the pacific north, you could see near portland and vancouver, that's actually the storm that's going to affect us but we're going to get the tail bottom end of it. we're not expecting a big impact from it but just enough if you have to wake up early tomorrow i'll take you through that timing so you can plan out your saturday. a check of a crash in concord with mike. >> contra costa county. everything else is green. looks like something new in the san jose foothills. we'll double check but not the major freeway that comes through the area. this is northbound 242 a little slowing from the split with 680/242 will be slow. there's a traffic break scheduled right now headed up in toward the area of central concord around grant and things are clear once you pass that and counter commute when there is a
commute. this morning should be light, like it has been for the last couple of weeks. the commute direction focusing here, funneling toward the bay bridge toll plaza with no major problems. there is richmond with a light flow of traffic. i'll show you the backup at the bay bridge. there is a little bun today. scott, back to you. the sudden escalation of tensions in the middle east. u.s. forces have killed iran's top military commander, general qasem soleimani, let the iranian military for more than 20 years. u.s. forces hit him with an air strike on his convoy near the airport in baghdad. a leading member of the shia militia in iraq was also killed. the strike is sparking outrage in iran, promises of retaliation as well, some in iraq are celebrating. the u.s. embassy is telling american civilians there to leave iraq immediately. leaders around the world are fearing this will launch a new and dangerous round of conflict. we are watching this story
carefully, so is nbc news. just ahead in our next half hour, we'll have a live report from capitol hill, and team coverage continuing on the "today" show, starting at 7:00 this morning. ent and later today, we mayarn attack in dublin, imotegan str wednesday night, where neighbors say dozens of police officers responded to an exchange gunfire. one woman was shot and killed and a man was inju police now know a man who lives there shot his ex-girlfriend and a man with a gun, when they forced their way into his home after he opened the door. the man left after the shooting and called 911. neighbors describe a very scary scene. >> i saw them carry a body out and it was like a sack of potatoes, hands, feet, and they removed that from the front porch and then there was another person on the ground. >> neighbors say he moved in just a few days ago. the name of the 28-year-old woman who was shot has not been released. >> 4:33. today the alameda county
district attorney could decide whether to file charges against oakland, cts who were arrested stolen monday, dove into a the man, whose computer was street. the victim worked for a tech company in the east bay, celebrating his birthday on monday. police are still searching for a third suspect in the case. a new housing proposal could help the affordable housing crisis in san francisco. "the san francisco examiner" reports a redevelopment agency wants state leaders to let them fund the construction of nearly 6,000 below market rate units. you might remember a similar law passed last november, using a $600 million bond for the construction or remodeling of nearly 3,000 units. some people wanted the city to devote $1 billion for the project so this proposal presents another way to address the affordable housing needs. the proposal, if it passes, would use properly tax increments in the area to fund the construction of those new units. the quest for real i.i.s is
hitting another bump ahead of the deadline, coming up this year. the real i.d. will be required to fly domestically in october or you have to use a passport. so a problem that's popping up during the application process is this. when you go to the dmv to get the real i.d., you have to bring certain identifying documents. one of them could be a passport or at least that's what people thought. now the state department is saying that your passport can be rejected during the real i.d. application process. so that means you have to use your birth certificate. another issue people are facing if you are married, you've been married or you've been divorced, you have to also bring a marriage license in addition to your birth certificate, so i guess a lot of moms are going to be getting phone calls. >> i guess. marin county taking aim at speeding drivers. today county leaders have set up five electronic speed signs, they show your speed of course as you go by. they're along roads that have the most number of speeding complaints. county leaders say they hope the signs will help people slow
down. apple is making a long-term commitment to stream tv. >> next on "today in the bay," the new project the tech giant's working on this morning. plus the headliners for coachella revealed. we'll show you who is set to take the stage in 2020 and when you can buy your tickets. and there you are, live at the bay bridge toll plaza, and people are coming back to work on this friday. mike will have a check of your traffic coming up. it's 4:36. trump: obamacare is a complete
nurse: these wild attacks on healthcare hurt the patients i care for. i've been a nurse in new york for thirty years. i know the difference leadership can make because i saw what mike bloomberg did as mayor. vo: mayor bloomberg helped lower the number of uninsured by 40%, covering 700,000 more new yorkers, life expectancy increased. he helped expand health coverage to 200,000 more kids and upgraded pediatric care--- infant mortality rates dropped to record lows. and as mayor, mike bloomberg always championed reproductive health for women. so when you hear mike bloomberg on health care... mrb: this is america. we can certainly afford to make sure that everybody that needs to see a doctor can see a doctor, everybody that needs medicines to stay healthy can get those medicines. nurse: you should know, he did it as mayor, he'll get it done as president. mrb: i'm mike bloomberg and i approve this message. it is 4:39, and we are off
to a clear start over san francisco, temperatures right now just a little chillier in the 30s. a couple of 40s, but we're tracking our next chance of maybe a couple of sprinkles moving into your saturday forecast. i'll break down the timing plus i have the latest snowpack coming up. and look at this crystal clear view of the dublin grade. there is a lot of traffic in the foreground but nothing unusual passing that b.a.r.t. station. lots of signs lit up, so are the cars. we'll talk about the traffic, what color are those sensors lighting up? good morning, i'm rahel solomon at cnbc head quarters. wall street is set to open sharply lower as global markets react to ai iran general. the news adding to the simmering tensions between the u.s. and iran, and raising concerns of possible retaliation. oil prices spiking on the news, up more than 4%.
gold is higher as traders seek out so-called safe haven investments. markets in asia and europe lower after u.s. stocks rallied to kick off the new year with the dow up more than 300 points to a record high. lowe's plans to hire more than 53,000 employees this spring, which is the busiest season for home improvement projects. the retailer says the hires will include full, part-time and seasonal positions. lowe's will hold the first walk-in hiring event on january 8.as stores arrive earlier in the season such as florida, southern california a hawaii. and apple may be ready to make a long-term commitment to streaming tv. it has struck a five-year production deal with a former head of hbo to create movies, these and documentaries for eplus. "variety" reports the focus will likely be on a small amount of high-profile content rather than just flooding apple with shows. guys, back to you. >> basically pay for streaming service to watch like two things. >> that's what i'm doing.
rahel, thanks. >> yes, sure. coming up on "today in the bay," vianey tracking our weekend forecast. >> that's right. we're waking up to chilly temps up through the north bay. look at napa, 37 degrees, and yes, there is a chance of seeing some rain. i'm going to time out that forecast for you, i'll have that answer coming up. the good flow of traffic, i think so. we'll talk about the timing i'm seeing with waze and a smooth drive here at palo alto. plus this woman says her ex-boyfriend stabbed her repeatedly but she survived. the south bay woman tells us how she got away. it's an interview you'll only see on nbc bay area. right now, 2 of my breakfast jacks with a freshly cracked

right now, 2 of my breakfa served all day, so they're not just for early birds. nice cause i was spinning till like 4 am. (snores) get my 2 for $4 breakfast jack deal while you can. gardena. looking live out our window over san jose this morning, doesn't it look nice? nice and clear right now. no rain in the forecast, yet. but it's coming. vianey is watching that for us this morning. >> let's get a check of your weather and traffic. traffic is building up a little bit. >> back to work. >> cars. and of course we're even though i am tracking rain, i think it's actually going to be not too bad. here it is, a live look right now at the golden gate bridge, as mike said, we aretarting to see some cars but the golden gate bridge is usually one of the loneliest this early. that changes into theafternoon. right now current temperatures 43 degrees in san jose.
37 in napa. look at san francisco 48 degrees, and our microclimate highs for the afternoon will be cool in the 60s, but a little bit warmer in some spots, including san jose. in fact, we're going to be in the upper 60s. 66 degrees. a couple of degrees warmer through livermore, 64. oakland 61. san francisco 57, but yet again we can't expect to keep that mix of sun and clouds. we'll see a lot more cloud cover in inland areas, and let's talk about that next chance of rain, so the reason why i'm saying i'm not too concerned about it is because we're going to get the bottom end of a storm that you can see right here on satellite radar. notice how the majority of the storm is focused on really far up to the north talking ght here the state line. look how we barely get the tail end of that. that means areas in sonoma county, napa could see the chance of some drizzle, so anywhere north of the golden gate bridge has the best chance of seeing rain but a lot of that will happen while you're sleeping so you're probably not going to get to see this rain
because it moves in really, really late tonight. we're talking after 9:00, and then it kind of tapers off pretty early tomorrow. ho hour-by-hour outlook, friday everything is okay and 10:30 drizzle around the coastline, half moon bay and santa rosa. as i advance this overnight into 5:00, 6:00, 7:00 a.m., after 8:00 a.m. t mpletely falls apart, tapering off but what is left behind is a lot of that cloud cover. so it will be cloudy for the first half of our day on saturday with a spotty chance of showers. less than 0.1 of an inch at this point. it's not going to be a washout saturday. you'll be able to enjoy your saturday afternoon and you'll definitely be able to enjoy your sunday with temperatures in the upper 50s, a couple of 60s into sunday for inland areas and we stay dry through the first week of the new year. mike? >> vianey, we're looking toward the bay bridge. as scott mentioned there are cars waiting today. hasn't been the case the last couple of weeks. we're back to the new year and some folks getting back to the old job or maybe a new job,
congratulations. looking at the fastrak lanes moving smoothly. one of the cash lanes on either side has to open upnd a bit. it's building, again, a different pattern than we've seen for a couple weeks. we shouldn't have as long as a commute for slowdowns, earl clearing up 7:30 for the early commute. right now we have a build expected and our partners at waze time it out from concord toward the bay bridge at 20, 22 minutes right now. about 6:00, by 6:00 it will grow by half an hour and hold will lighten up once again. right now, counter commute, counter the commute direction, we do have slowing still that is northbound 242 as you pass by grant. we have the slowing that starts back here. there was a traffic break and a car that may have been still in lanes, so they had to clear that out off of the slow lane there. i think everything is good in the next couple of minutes, traveling north toward highway 4 southbound coming down and cutting the corner, just flying through concord, coming out of
pittsburg and bay point. the bigger look shows you the speed sensors around the bay are great, that one crash in san jose is over on story road, no major injuries and not a freeway. you're okay. it is a major roadway so we'll track that. over here across the bay and the san mateo bridge looks great. with more traffic on the bay bridge early, we should see more traffic across that san mateo, so we'll track 92. back to you. >> mike, thank you. only on nbc bay area, a south bay mom who was brutally attacked and her daughter kidnapped is now talking about her harrowing ordeal. >> "today in the bay's" sonya chen has that interview. >> i was better off without him. >> reporter: monicia ramirez says her three-year relationship with victor after dropping their daughter off after a thanksgiving visit, she says their meeting turned violent. >> i'm turned back so m looked back and he's like pulling up his pants and then he like comes es very quickly,
