treasure and sing it the way it is but add a little here and there but not everywhere with. >> i wonder if they encourage it at that event. because they're so different. >> it is hit or miss. you think about marvin gaye when he did it, it was slower and smooth. i like that. >> who did that -- >> that is -- no one could be -- >> national anthem is like the dunk contest. i like what you did there and others go it is flashy but wasn't what i wanted. >> many vocalists will say that is hardest song to sing ever and the range. >> and some people forget the words. >> singing in the car. >> i think that is definitely something you should practice a lot ahead of time. >> in the shower. >> in the shower in the car. you may be getting ready to get into the car to head to work. and we're starting out with at times you may be squinting to see. here is a view in dublin. or maybe widening your eyes to see because the fog is dense in
the tri-valley. as we have seen visibility cut down to a quarter of mile. it is just as bad in oakland. so in the spots in between we've also seen patchy dense fog. it is down to about three miles visibility in napa as well as san jose. and we'll see it kind of moving around over the next couple of hours. but once it clears out, we're in for another beautiful day. and our temperatures in san jose go from 48 degrees at 7:00 to about 66 degrees at 1:00 today and continuing to warm up a few degrees more from there. reaching 70 degrees in san jose. keeping in mind that normal is about 61, 62 degrees. we're up to 69 in napa. san francisco reaching 66 degrees. we can see some clouds and area of low pressure just off the coast. that will roll in and bring us more clouds but unfortunately still doesn't bring us rain. but we're seeing the high pressure that kept it dry breaking down allowing for at least a couple of the surges of
some cooler air and some moisture to move in. we're still not going to see think rain until possibly in the north bay by the end of the weekend. and early next week we should start to see the areas of low pressure moving in that could bring us some rain. but it does stay dry over the next seven days. so our inland areas still well above normal temperature-wise. reaching up to 70 degrees and mid-60s by the end of the week. mike, you've been tracking that breaking news out of fremont. >> we do. we have breaking news out of fremont. and good news over here. look i want to see flashing lights. so still working on the repairs for the power pole that is down but now flashing red light and that is good news and a visual indicator telling folks use this as a four-way stop. we're talking about treatment boulevard at mallory avenue, the map will show you this is an important section by the fremont hub and that corner is where folks were in the roadway doing the work so be very careful. low clouds making it tough to see. the b.a.r.t. station is up here so if you are heading to the
b.a.r.t. station, critical timing to catch your train and that may hamper things. use stevenson as an alternate to get there. this is a clearer route. to the rest of the bay, and we do see the traffic flowing smoothly. kari is talking about the toughest visibility in the tri-valley but the toughest drive is cross the san mateo bridge westbound jammed up approaching the high-rise because of a crash blocking two of the three west bound lanes. and into the bay bridge no problem but a new incident i'm checking out. >> we'll check back with you. coming up on "today in the bay," a south bay teacher shout out on national tv. i bet you're wondering why. stick around and well tell you. >> and how one shopper helps stop a suspected shoplifter. and what happened next in the video that police would rather you did not do. obama: he's been a leader

in washington this morning, a push to push bill barr out but don't hold your breath. >> and i want to introduce you to a woman named charlene. you probably think who is she and what is she doing? look at pictures. each one something similar and something different. we're going to talk about it coming up. keep watching. >> charlene. >> look at her. she's watching you. tom steyer: listen, every democrat running for president is better than the criminal in the white house. we all have progressive plans to address the big challenges facing our country. what makes me different, is i've been working for ten years outside of washington, to end the corporate takeover of our democracy, and to return power to the american people. i started need to impeach to hold this lawless president accountable.
i'm proposing big reforms like term limits... ...a national referendum... ...and ending corporate money in politics. as president, i'll declare climate change an emergency on day 1. and, use those powers to finally address the climate crisis. and, i've spent 30 years building a successful international business. so, i can take on donald trump on the economy - and beat him. i'm tom steyer and i approve this message - because there is nothing more powerful than the unified voice of the american people.
othroughout the country for the past twelve years, mr. michael bloomberg is here. vo: leadership in action. mayor bloomberg and president obama worked together in the fight for gun safety laws, to improve education, and to develop innovative ways to help teens gain the skills needed to find good jobs. obama: at a time when washington is divided in old ideological battles he shows us what can be achieved when we bring people together to seek pragmatic solutions. bloomberg: i'm mike bloomberg and i approve this message. it is almost 6:45 and we're
dealing with dense fog in the tri-valley. high school hard to tell where this is. this is dublin looking at 580 and the cars are driving on through and quarter mile visibility or less. we're dealing with this for the morning. clearing for the day. i'll show you that forecast coming up in less than five minutes. similar situation here. san mateo bridge westbound, both directions affected by the fog but the crash westbound may require the brakes suddenly near the high-rise. different case at the bay bridge with no back-up or problems for visibility. the low clouds over on the upper right near the maze. well a deadly weekend on contra costa county roads. this is new video from a crash in brentwood on saturday night. police say an unidentified 23-year-old man crashed into a tree near fairfield and central. alcohol is not a factor. also an 18-year-old woman is dead after this crash in antioch. police say it happened yesterday
on james dunnland boulevard. that victim was a passenger ejected from the car. a developing story in southern california where drew carey's former fiancee has been killed in the hollywood hills. police were called to amy hardwick's home are where they found her badly injured. she later died. hardwick had a restraining order against a former boyfriend which recently expired and place later arrested the boyfriend. the host of one comedy show said when he heard the news he thought back to video of him taking part in the show. >> i put the two together and i said wait a second this guy was on the show just a couple of weeks ago and i remembered feeling there is something off with this guy. he had a weird energy. >> dr. hardwick with a marriage counselor with her own youtube channel. she and drew carey broke up in 2018. 6:46 and there is a coordinated effort to oust the president's loyal attorney
general. >> scott mcgrew joins us now. a thousand members of department of justice say bill barr should step down. >> and they've signed an open letter. these are not just signatures from anyone, these are people who spent careers at the justice department and do not have confident barr can remain neutral and independent. barr, of course, has been involved in several controversies, all revealed rather in the past week. starting with the news he had set up a special channel of justice to receive reports from the president's president personal attorney investigating the bidens in ukraine. there are questions whether he stepped to regarding the tush. >> back and then of course you have roger stone. there is no question, barr did what the president wanted and forced federal prosecutors to ask for a lighten sentence for stone. that happened. but was it coincidence? did barr know ahead of time that
that is exactly what the president wanted? is the president directing decisions at the department of justice? barr says no. the open letter criticizing the stone sentencing recommendation reads, a person should not be given special treatment in a criminal prosecution because they are a close ally of the president. governments that use the enormous power of law enforcement to punish their enemies and reward their allies are not constitutional republics. >> they're autocracies. the government is closed for the presidents' day holiday and the president in florida yesterday. we showed you the president doing a lap at daytona yesterday. well if something does happen today, even though the government is technically closed, we'll be tweeting about it. follow me @scott mcgrew. >> thanks, scott. well republican senator rand paul will be in san francisco tonight. the kentucky senator made headlines for bringing his party
to -- to restrict the president's ability to wage war against iran. he'll speak tonight at the italian athletic club in an event organized by san francisco republican party. trending this morning, a walmart employee taking the internet by storm. this is charlene. she works at walmart in maryland. on the facebook page she poses with all sorts of must-have products, she always manages to keep the same straight face in every photo there which makes the post they say even more relatable. kind of funny there, too. right now the star has petitioned to get charlene now, turning into a little character, to get her on the ellen show. >> charlene, charlene, charlene charlene. >> right. so now we're following her on instagram to see what is the picture of the day. i want to show you a beautiful picture that we could post on instagram here. we could see all of the beautiful views of the bay area
covered by fog. there is a look at the bay bridge. it is nice start to the day but having to deal with low visibility in some spots. take a look at the golden gate bridge where you could see the fog. not covering the whole span but we are seeing it very low. only at about 200 to 300 feet off the surface the bay. so we're seeing low visibility. i know it just looks like a blank screen but this is our palo alto camera. and so unfortunately we have this to deal with for the start of the day. and you just want to slow it down even though it is a holiday and there may not be that many people out driving, as we go into the rest of the morning this will clear out and we'll warm up quite a bit. as we check out aum of our microclimates, all right. here we are at noon. we're wanting to take that lunch outside. it is 65 degrees in danville. the valley at about 64 degrees. in san francisco at 61. we'll warm up several more degrees with the valleys reaching the low 70s. look at 2:30 this afternoon,
concord at 70 degrees. cupertino is the 68. and we're at 70 in novato. and then going into the evening, it is slowly cooling off heading toward sunset. and tonight we're going to dip down into the h-- in the low to mid-40s which is normal. what is thought normal is the fact that we haven't seen any rain all month long and still look at a disturbances starting to move in. you could see the clouds reaching into the bay area. still not bringing any rain. but we're seeing the breakdown of the high pressure that kept it so dry. it will allow for a couple of areas of low pressure to move in. but they are just so dry once they get here. as we go into the end of the weekend, we could see some showers starting to work on northern california but much of the bay area will not see the rain. doing into next week, we'll have a chance of showers. this is at the very tail end of the month. and we could finally get some rain. but we are still dry for the them. seven days for the inland areas reaching the low 70s today. mid-60s by the end of the week. we'll put a slight chance of
rain in san francisco's forecast for sunday. as with we could see some of the showers moving in there as well as the north bay. mike, you were concerned about that early morning fog. >> yeah. surface streets. so as folks may not be commuting on the freeway, but definitely driving around town and we could barely see what is going on in fremont. this intersection critical, this is at mallory avenue and fremont boulevard you could barely see and can't see the crews working in the roadway right here. that person just drove right past them in the center. we have one lane blocked by crews continuing to work to repair the signal after it was taken out this morning. now looking at this map and that is the critical portion of fremont. right by the fremont hub. the plaza. the b.a.r.t. station is up here. so folks traveling from the area near 880 up to the b.a.r.t. station, you want to use stevenson because that is clear of any of the traffic control. a smoother drive. one you're used to getting up toward walnut. the freeway moving smoothly except for the san mateo bridge. i've seen the speed sensors
improve across the span. we had a crash blocking two of the three lanes and i was worried because folks couldn't see the slow drive as you approach the high-rise. still can't see great. but at least it looks like the speed sensors are improving i think they are cleared one more lane. we'll check on that. the bay area, the early stall has no back-up or no hallelujah at t -- no metering lights. >> happening now, general motors pulling out from down under. the company ceo is not selling enough vehicles in the markets. general motors has a long history in australia building cars under the holden brand for decades. well next a quick look at top stories including the bay area development in the coronavirus outbreak. two planes carrying americans arrive in the u.s. overnight. one plane in the bay area. ahead what is next for those evacuees which include people now infected with the virus.
plus a little girl attacked by a mountain lion at a popular south bay park. up next, the search for the animal happening right now and what park rangers plan to do once it is caught. and coming up for you on the "today" show, westminster dog show fans favorite daniel the golden retriever stops by right after "today in the bay" at 7:00. we'll back with with local news for you right here coming up. >> life in the bay area will look and feel very different than it does today. >> all this will be under water. >> if you do not adapt, then you're going to be in trouble. >> tuesday at 11:00 we investigate all of the new construction in places experts say will soon be flooded. >> are there enough local officials who are paying attention to this? >> today, no. >> it is incumbent on all of us to work on this issue together. >> tuesday at 11:00 on nbc bay
putting term limits on congress, washington insiders went crazy. they said term limits are bad, that they'll break government. what a joke! congress is working fine for politicians and corporations, but it's not doing anything for real people on climate, health care or gun safety. the only way we get new ideas is electing new people, including a president willing to shake-up washington. i'm tom steyer and i approve this message.
welcome back. before you head out of the door, maybe you're off on the this presidents' day. here are the top stories on "today in the bay." >> dozens of cruise ship passengers would may have been exposed to the coronavirus are in the bay area this morning. this is a live look at travis air force base in fairfield where some of them arrived late last night. including 14 passengers who are have already tested positive for the virus. they're expected to be sent to camp roberts on the central coast. one couple we spoke with say that they were not forced to leave the ship which had been quarantined at sea in japan. but they did so once they were encouraged to do so by u.s. health experts. >> you guys want to go back to the u.s., is that right. >> yes. as long as we'll be safe. >> honestly you're much safer got e getting off this ship. >> okay. >> i would not stay on this ship if i were you.
>> the "today" show will have more on the passengers arrival in the u.s. coming up in a few minutes. and in marin county, rescue teams are expected to resume the search for a missing husband and wife. 77-year-old carol kipparski and 72-year-old ian irwin from palo alto were last seen on friday. they failed to check out of the airbnb in inverness over the weekend. the marin county sheriff's office is requesting for dog teams in the search and right now crews operating under an assumption that the pair went for a hike and never came back. and the search continues for a mountain lion that bit a little girl yesterday at rancho san antonio in cupertino. the 6-year-old girl was hiking with with a group when a 100 pound mountain lion jumped out and bit her leg. she is expected to be okay but park rangers shut down the park and will not reopen it until that mountain lion is found. this is the same park rangers
have shut down twice before in the past year due to mountain lion sightings. heading outside on this monday morning with really my favorite shot of the day. the golden gate bridge. with the fog right underneath it. >> resting on the pillows. >> we'll see that fog kind of drifting around parts of the bay area. once it clears out we're in for a nice day. highs reaching 70 degrees inland and the dry weather continues as we go throughout the week. it is going to reach up to about 66 degrees in san francisco today. >> all right. well we're covering a crash in fremont. >> surface streets and major streets in fraeemont. and this is mallory crossing fremont boulevard. signal still out so a four-way stop and low clouds and fog complicate the view here as well as in other parts like palo alto. >> look at that. exactly. be careful if you're heading out of the door. if you're lucky enough to have the presidents' day off. that is what is happening for "today in the bay." we're back at 7:25 for a live
update. >> and the midday show at 11:00 on this presidents' day. and if you're off, enjoy, if you're working enjoy that too. >> every day is a gift, right. >> absolutely. good morning breaking overnight, back home. >> you're much safer getting off this ship. >> americans on the cruise ship, finally arriving back on u.s. soil two chartered flights air lifting them to safety in the states not without unwelcome news 14 of them are now infected. we'll take you inside the tense journey, as we're live at that california air base where the quarantine continues flood fears. relentless rain ravages the south in the worst flooding there in decades >> come on, baby
