11:17 pm
days is serious business. rob mayeda knows that all too well. we've had such a hot day. >> it has been. the last two days have been extremely hot. but we did see signs of cooling. first we woke up to the foggy skies of san francisco and on the coast. our temperatures right now compared to about 20 hours ago from san jose to san francisco. you're seeing a few degrees of cooling. and the afternoon high today. in and around san francisco, 5 to 10 degrees cooler than yesterday. so the cooldown under way for the coast and bay. it's going to take a little longer before inland valleys really start to see the temperatures dropping own off. upper 60s now around san jose. san francisco about 62 degrees. you see it right there. 68. and we'll likely have another warm day, especially south of san jose. but look at the golden gate bridge. this is what happens when you still have high pressure holding on. marine layer about 500 feet thick. forced down to the ocean service. or across the bay. and so this is the kind of driving conditions you'll have tomorrow morning. misty driving conditions at
11:18 pm
times. let's say the bay bridge or highway 1 tomorrow on the coast or highway 17, you'll start to run into some of that fog. we'll see temperatures for game three of the nlds for the giants. 2:07 should see mid-70s and the sea breeze turning stronger as things cool down. wind speeds now. this is what we needed to see all weekend. the arrows pointing on shore. with the onshore push of that marine air come thes clouds. even towards hayward and oakland and throughout the afternoon, right around pacifica and half moon bay, you'll have the low clouds throughout the afternoon. much cooler there. still the sunshine down around santa cruz. now unfortunately, if you don't see any chances of rain in the forecast other than the mist that may briefly fall with some of that low cloud cover. we do have a tropical storm ÷& here, which is weak eing to our south. this is tropical storm simon with winds of about 70 miles per hour. that will drift across central baja california. and unfortunately, we do not see any rain out of this coming towards california. instead, we'll see a chance of
11:19 pm
that rain moving into southeastern arizona. perhaps the deserts there, southern california out by palm springs might see a little bit of rain from that. but nothing coming this far north. as we look at the primary source of rainfall this time of year, the pacific jet stream, the polar jet still way off to the north. you see the tropical moisture staying away from us. and nothing but dry conditions for us. that jet stream looks anchored across british columbia and western washington instead of northern california. this is actually typical for early october. it would just be nice to see that drop further south. not in the cards for the next seven days. upper 80s for san jose tomorrow. we'll see low 90s around saratoga. san francisco seeing highs in the upper 70s tomorrow. and we'll see numbers in the low 90s around the north bay. still some mid 90s in the tri-valley. so inland locations like the tri-valley, you're going to wait until tuesday or wednesday to see that cooling. san francisco already seeing the cooling today. we'll continue to see temperatures throughout wednesday. same for san jose. and you'll see relief in the
11:20 pm
tri-valley kicking in as we get towards wednesday and thursday. the trend reverses again for next weekend. we'll see the temperatures climb on up next weekend. by next sunday, going become from the number 80s. on friday, there you go, there is a look at next weekend's forecast. the heat coming back. not as bad as this weekend. but we do not see any rain. much needed rain still not in the seven-day forecast. back to you. >> all right, rob, thanks a lot. there is a new band in the nfl. why you won't be seeing collin kaepernick or others wearing the beats headphones anymore. >> that will be a big change. out of the water, olympic favorite michael phelps taking a break from the pool. we'll explain why.

11:25 pm
postgame interviews. the beats we're talking about are the headphones you see right there. collin kaepernick was rocking following today's game. you rarely see him without those on. beats is dr. dre's company recently bought by apple. the problem, though, neither of them have an endorsement deal with the league. beats competitor's league bose does. because of that the league will fine players for any other brand of headphones at podiums or locker rooms up to 90 minutes following every game. >> and those are the signature look too. that will be a big change. >> but boy, money talks. >> that's for sure. >> wow. still to come -- >> on my left, it was the worst i've ever seen. it was pretty bad. >> wait times at a local v.a. hospital sometimes stretching on for years just to get dentures or other serious dental work. tonight we investigate the palo alto v.a. hospital and found some who fought a war fighting here at home just to get some dental care. and a shocking nomination for the nobel peace prize. yes, yes, that's the right

11:27 pm
11:28 pm
it's been held up as a shiny example of a broken v.a. system nationwide. the v.a. hospital in palo alto is a clinic that works where veterans don't have to wait for care. but we have evidence that says otherwise, war heroes waiting months, even years to complete their care. investigative reporter stephen stock has the story. >> reporter: we discovered that some of the veterans who went to war are now battling for critical dental care they need here at home. insiders at palo alto's v.a. hospital say all is not as it has been portrayed nationally. these whistle-blowers hañe come forward to us with evidence showing a serious backlog of care exist at palo alto's v.a.
11:29 pm
center too. not necessarily on the medical side of things, but in the dental clinic. the promise to veterans made by president obama abraham lincoln in 1865 is memorialized in bronze out in front of the v.a. medical center in palo alto. >> they need the best treatment that we can give them. >> reporter: but former dental lab technician george gerres says he witnessed firsthand palo alto's v.a. often fall short of that promise when it came to caring for dental patients. >> it got progressively worse until i left. when i left, it was the worst i've ever seen. it was pretty bad. >> reporter: for six years, geddis worked in the palo alto's v.a.'s laboratory making implants and other dental prosthesis. >> i know firsthand a lot of the sacrifices for this country. >> reporter: under v.a. guidelines, dental care is reserved for special veterans. not every vet qualifies. in fact to get dental care under
11:30 pm
the rules, the veteran must be a former p.o.w. or 100% disabled or meet specific need-based criteria. george geddis witnessed those vets waiting incredibly long periods to get things like implants and dentures. how long were some of these cases? >> the longest one i seen was three years. three years and running. >> reporter: man waiting three years for his dentures? >> three years. >> reporter: frustrated, geddis decided to retire last year. >> one gentleman in particular, he didn't have his dentures. and was telling me that he was so tired of drinking his food. >> reporter: don't believe geddis? then listen to this insider who still works at the v.a. >> the waiting period is just unreal. >> reporter: the understand insider asked to be disguised and his voice altered because he fears retaliation. has anything changed? >> none. nothing has changed. nothing has changed. >> reporter: nbc bay area's investigative unit obtained copies of these logs, giving us
11:31 pm
an inside look at just how extensive the backlog is. take act look at these pictures too. the pictures taken in july show hundreds of cases representing hundreds of patients, cases still sitting on the shelves in the v.a.'s dental laboratory, cases that are unresolved and unfinished. some date back to 2011. is there a backlog here? >> there was a backlog here, yes. >> reporter: this doctor serves as the chief of dental services at the palo alto v.a. how long have some patients waited in the last couple years? >> i am aware that some patients have waited up to two years for implants. >> reporter: is that acceptable? >> that is not acceptable, and that's why we are making the changes we are making. the staffing shortage, the support staff shortage, all have been addressed. >> reporter: she acknowledges that long wait times for dental care was a problem. but she insists that she has made significant progress in reducing that backlog since
11:32 pm
taking the helm two years ago. i need new dentures. >> right. >> do i have to wait? >> you may have to wait more than a month. but less than two. >> reporter: dr. knapp she's she has increased staffing in recent years by hire mortgage dental specialists and contracting with two outside labs. are there still veterans waiting? >> for? >> for prosthesis. >> not at this point. >> reporter: but we discovered the backlog persists. >> they need to move quicker on those problems. >> reporter: just talk to veterans such as vietnam veteran michael, who says he has seen little progress since dr. knapp came on board. >> there is just no excuse for this. >> reporter: he says he has waited so far almost two years to get permanent implants. he is still waiting. >> when you have teeth missing from your mouth, you feel very self-conscious about smiling or how you're going to eat, okay. you have to be careful what kind of food you eat because it actually hurts. >> reporter: we found a list of
11:33 pm
over 300, and over 30% of them have been waiting for four months or longer. that acceptable? we showed dr. knapp the list that we obtained demonstrating how long some of these veterans have had to wait. >> we make every attempt over here to reach the patient if his denture is sitting in the lab. if the patient has not come in or there has to be another reason. that's all i'm saying. >> so is the reason that there aren't enough dentists to see the patients to put these dentures? in. >> no. >> reporter: óx5ñno? >> i -- we have improved the staffing. and we are going to make even better. but if there is such a, it just needs to be investigated. >> reporter: we provided the doctor and her staff with a complete list of 113 cases that are six months old or older. people who work for you say it's because there aren't enough dentists and they aren't being seen. and this stuff is sitting on the shelves, not getting to them. >> there was a point when there were not enough dentists.
11:34 pm
like i started, we were extremely short-staffed. i have done my very best with hr's help and with our leadership to fix that problem. >> something needs to be done now about this. you can't ignore this. >> reporter: for veterans such as michael, the doctor's pledge to do better rings hollow in the shadow of president lincoln's words from so long ago. >> when are you going to take care of this problem? we've all waited long enough. >> now we just learned that the inspector general is now investigating this backlog to see why it's taking so long to get these veterans' dentures implants and other dental treatment that they need. when the secretary of the v.a. visited palo alto here in the bay area earlier this summer, he admitted to us that there is a problem with a serious backlog of dental cases here. as for the doctor, she tells us they are now looking into the cause of these delays, and she promises she'll make any changes as needed.
