6:16 am
>> so they owe again. which is just astounding to me. >> so what are the people supposed to ask when they go to hr. >> change the with holding. and hr will know what to do. by thousand everybody knows what to do, it is a matter of doing it. so more money is coming out of your paycheck every week but in april you're okay. next year. >> talking taxes on monday. that is so fun. >> learn the second time around. >> and government bonds and yield rates. >> gold is up. >> i'm surprised you invite me to these parties. >> bye. >> thanks scott. >> >> and the disaster victims in four bay area counties may be eligible to delay payment on property taxes. >> their what? >> their property taxes. >> be sure -- >> the consoler is offering this program in santa clara, san mateo, marin and sonoma counties in disaster areas declared by the governor's office.

6:18 am
take a ride on a horse today. >> or walk. >> a horse riding forecast. >> just get outside. it is going to be a nice day. still feeling like spring. well above normal temperatures. and we've also seen some patches of fog but it is all clear here as we get a live look at the bay bridge. and it is going to be a nice, sunny day. so as you step out, it does feel cool in some spots. in san francisco we're in the upper 40s. as you head out later in the morning, starting to teal milder but still probably jacket weather at least in early afternoon there in the city. and looking at the inland areas, this is where temperatures are slightly warmer, reaching 63 degrees at noon in fremont and 68 in napa. and then low to mid 70s in some the spots. and we have the warmest temperatures expected today in the east bay and the valleys -- ore rather the north bay and east bay vals will be warm. and then tonight down to the upper 40s.
6:19 am
looking at the wide view of what is happening here, where we are still seeing very dry weather here and then some clouds approaching from the west. it will take a while before it gets here as high pressure slows down the storm systems from coming in but that high pressure is on the move as we head toward the end of the week, some slight rain chances but we may have better rain chances next week but of course that is also next month so we may make it through the whole month of february without a drop of rain. and our temperatures will warm up. we're going to start out with some upper 60s for the workweek. and then the upper 70s by thursday. coming down for the weekend, once again watching out for the slight chance of rain on sunday into next week. and mike is seeing slowing for the tri-valley now. >> i am. this is big view, the peninsula. the delay we with saw eastbound at dumb brid-- at dumbarton bri.
6:20 am
and it is the tri-valley where we do see 84 westbound and southbound 680. 680 is showing slowing through pleasanton. and now registering as foggy in patches throughout the tri-valley, it is very possible there is a patchle fog as it builds through pleasanton and into sunol and we'll track that and look for crashes reported. no major problems but low clouds for the dublin camera. there is a metering lights keeping them from flooding on to the freeway but it is moving nicely for west 580 out of the altamont. the south bay a slowing approaching blossom hill but i believe that traffic break is clearing because the speeds a are -- are recovering and that is counter commute. >> still ahead here on "today in the bay," angry parents demanding answers why it may come as soon as today for the oakland high school now closed due to toxic ground water. plus nbc bay area responds. >> she spotted some problems

6:22 am
breadwinner. she instilled in mike a belief in hard work and a drive to build a better life. so he started a company from scratch with an idea and endless hours- today, that makes him the only democrat in the race who's created 20,000 jobs. he's the only democrat who's run the largest and most diverse city in america, rebuilding after 9-11, creating over 450,000 jobs and expanding health care coverage to 700,000 people. the only democrat who's built a grassroots movement to combat gun violence and he's a leader combatting climate change. the only democrat who's never taken a penny from special interests. now mike is running to deliver on the american dream for everyone with common sense solutions and the ability to get it done. because mike bloomberg is the only democrat who can take on trump. and trump knows it. i'm mike bloomberg and i approve this message.

6:43 am
dream. it starts here, in a middle class neighborhood with a middle class kid named mike. when his father died, his mother went to work and became the breadwinner. she instilled in mike a belief in hard work and a drive to build a better life. so he started a company from scratch with an idea and endless hours- today, that makes him the only democrat in the race who's created 20,000 jobs. he's the only democrat who's run the largest and most diverse city in america, rebuilding after 9-11, creating over 450,000 jobs and expanding health care coverage to 700,000 people. the only democrat who's built a grassroots movement to combat gun violence and he's a leader combatting climate change. the only democrat who's never taken a penny from special interests. now mike is running to deliver on the american dream for everyone with common sense solutions and the ability to get it done. because mike bloomberg is the only democrat who can take on trump. and trump knows it.

6:47 am
democratic primary and secretly trying to help him campaign. members of the house were briefed last week, russian operatives were supporting trump's re-election. the white house national security adviser, though, told abc's george stephanopoulos, he believed the russians were helping sanders for sure. >> well there are reports that they want bernie sanders to get elected president. that is no surprise. he honeymooned in moscow, the president has rebuilt the american military to an extent we haven't seen since ronald reagan so i don't think it is any surprise that russia or china or iran would want somebody out other president trump. >> now, o'brien had said that he didn't -- had not seen any evidence that sanders w-- sandes was being helped but he believed that trump is not getting help. >> i haven't seen any intelligence that russia is
6:48 am
doing anything to attempt to get president trump re-elected. i think this is a -- the same old story that we've heard before. >> o'brien said he thought the house didn't intend to believe them to believe that the russians were supporting president trump's re-election. president trump and the first lady are in india and getting an incredible reception. every last seat in this cricket stadium filled as the president greets primary modi. the trump's later visited the taj mahal as people cheered along the route. the "today" show will have more coverage of the president and first lady at 7:00 a.m. instead of telling you about twitter, back to the big board at the new york stock exchange. that is getting better. we were down 900 points on the dow to begin with as the world and the financial markets worry about coronavirus. >> that is right. well 6:48 now. and guess you could say the bay area is going hollywood. people in san francisco talking about the explosions and
