7:01 am
ground where you can see christmas in the park. a great annual tradition and probably a good night to go because the skies will stay clear for a bit longer. thanks so much for joining us. i'm vicky nguyen. let's get a check of your microclimate forecast with anthony slaughter. you said the rain will stay at bay until after midnight. >> i think everybody will see a bit of shower activity but it will be after midnight. this is our dublin cam. it's clear. we do have the thick, isolated fog because our atmosphere is rich and moisture. clouds will start to increase ahead of our storm system and showers will arrive especially in the north bay. everybody else getting light sprinkle activity tonight and a bigger system arrives as we head toward the middle of this up coming week. you can see the visibility on
7:02 am
the map. san francisco down to 7. the thickest fog is in our inland valleys. livermore less than a .25 of a mile. today's highs will be back to the mid to upper 60s. the clouds will be coming in all day long as we get ready for our next storm system. thank you. we have continuing coverage this morning after berkeley after another night of violent protests. police say what began as peaceful demonstration quickly turned ugly. two officers were hurt and protesters smashed store windows. the vandalism occurred along university avenue. demonstrators were out to call for police accountability. at least three businesses had their windows shattered. some were spray painted and
7:03 am
looted. >> our officers started taking people from the crowd. were throwing rocks and other projectiles at our officers. >> these two windows break. it's like people smashed up. >> comes and throws break fluid like he was going to light the store on fire. a guy with a crowbar starts stealing stuff. >> more than 100 officers from other jurisdictions came to assist berkeley police. the department is still gathering information on the number of people arrested. in san francisco last night more than a dozen protesters were arrested after staging a die-in. this was the second consecutive day a die in was held on market street during the busy holiday shopping trip.
7:04 am
the protests may be different in each city but the message is the same. people demanding police accountability. this as many cases of possible police wrong doing are coming to light across the nation. in cleveland a grand jury has been called after a 12-year-old was shot and killed by police. he brandished what turned out to be an air pistol. his family has filed a wrongful death lawsuit against the officer and the city. in brooklyn, a grand jury will hear evidence in the killing of an unarmed 28-year-old shot by an officer. many people are now questioning the grand jury system and whether it's working. >> the system itself is clearly problematic and ridden with conflicts when it comes to investigating police officers. >> protesters are planning to march on washington, d.c. later this month. they will call on congress to hold hearings on grand jury
7:05 am
investigation. we'll have continuing coverage of the protest on air and online at nbcbayarea.com. now to a story you'll see only on nbc bay area. what you saw in that video was a teenager on a skateboard who was almost hit by a driver who lost control. the accident and the boy's reaction all caught on camera. no one was hurt. the witnesses say the driver was going fast when she hit a curb and smashed into a tree. 14-year-old gabe says it's normal for him to have his camera rolling while skating because he likes to capture all of his tricks. the mercedes was heading downhill when the drive r lost control. the teenager said if he hasn't jump into the bushes he would have been hit.
7:06 am
>> i'm happy everyone's okay and no one got hurt. >> gabe's skateboard was snapped in half when the car ran over it. the car had to be towed. the driver was not hurt but there's still no word from redwood city police department on why she lost control. drones may soon be taking to the skies over san jose. police held a community meeting to explain how they plan to use a drone that was given to the department. in drone would be used only to evaluate and monitor emergency situations like an active shooter or a hostage situation. officials also address prooiiva concerns. >> we are proposing some policies that would not have us doing any kind of surveillance other than these two situations where there might be explosive device s or a tactical incident. >> the one-year test program is grounded until approved by the city council and the faa.

7:18 am
valley floor and very gusty winds. this week is another active week in the weather department. here we go again with more rain. we definitely need that rain and we're getting it. it's slowly but surely the rain gauge continues to add up. now we're at 18% of average for our drought. we still got a ways to go, but you know what, we're just taking off rainy season. it really doesn't get under way until january or february. we're on the right path. i want to show you the v visibility this morning. san francisco, 7. this is not ocean fog. it's not the fog that moves in overnight. it's not the marine layer of fog. it forms the valley floor and places like that. it billows up. you'll notice in livermore, even in san jose looking at the visibility pretty low. you'll notice in san jose there are some areas of clear. you can see the thin line of fog. it's not too thick downtown but
7:19 am
in certain areas over in dublin you can see how it formed overnight. not too high in the sky. that's how the valley fog forms. pretty this morning. looks kind of like twilight out there. really continue to burn off as when he had through the day. clouds will be increasing through the day because of our next storm system. temperatures back into the mid to upper 60s. it's not going to be overly warm. very similar to where it was yesterday. here is our storm system sitting off the coast. you can see the clouds impressive with the cloud cover ban. not impressive with rainfall amounts. this system is not organized and most of the rain will track to our north. as we put on the live radar as it scans the skies no rain detected but as we mentioned early we have the fog that will build. let's take you into the future. this is about 7:00, 8:00 this morning. notice skies clear. by 5:00 this evening we're not looking at a whole bunch of rain. this little ban of rain that
7:20 am
will come through is mid level moisture. by this evening 5:00, 6:00, skies will be cloudy and then tomorrow morning, that's when we'll see the first showers arrive especially across the north bay. you'll see the chance of rain increase. bip 6:00, 7:00 in the morning the showers continue to train across north bay. across the rest of the bay area really nothing. the rainfall amounts will be very small with this next system that's going to move through tomorrow. anywhere from the trace amount to an inch in the south bay to quarter of an inch in north bay. this is the one we have to pay attention to wednesday and thursday. wednesday night the storm system dies down from the north. that will bring in heavy rain from the north bay wednesday night. thursday morning everybody expecting heavy rain and at times localized ponding on the roads and very gusty winds. that will be for thursday. the system will mover out of here by thursday night. the rain pattern does continue the next few days especially into this up coming weekend.

when it comes to northerning veterans it's usually the young
7:24 am
ones recognizing the older ones. our story goes in the opposite direction. here is garvin thompson. >> veterans who have been in iraq and afghanistan who have been on the receiving end of some east bay folks hold enough, in some cases, to be their grandparents. folks who just want to say thank you for your service and sacrifice. looked at one way, the craft of carving wood is all about taking things away. removing pieces of wood bit by bit until a finished shape is revealed. look at it through the eyes of the tri-valley wood carver meeting every tuesday at the pleasanton senior center and you'll see just the opposite. for the past four years with every bit of wood they have removed from the 55 eagles heads they are carved something has
7:25 am
been added. a piece of themselves. >> it becomes a piece of love. i had no idea i had it in my hands to do that. it comes from someplace else. >> bob, like many of his fellow carvers, is a veteran. like other members of the group bob jumped at the chance when asked if he'd like to help make personalized ceremony game for wounded vets. personalized not just because representing the military history are etched into the staff but personal because before the first cut is ever made, the carver contacts the recipient to discuss the cane and their story. >> it's always heart wrenching to talk to these guys and find out a little bit about what they been through and it just overwhelming at times. >> as a nation we've asked these
7:26 am
people to do a lot. >> it makes them feel good that somebody out there is really acknowledging them. >> i was really pleased that i was able to do that for one of our heroes. >> i think that this matches a lot better. >> the hour s upon hours of carving that go into one eagle head, these men and women can't help but think about why they are doing what they do. the carver, not too proud to admit that more than a few tears have hit the ground, along with their wood shavings. >> i've had a couple of people call back and ask for me. i answer the phone and here is this fellow and he said thank you very much. i can't say anymore. >> shed a few tears and work on it some more. >> and continue to work. they promise too. as long as there are vets
7:27 am
willing to receive, they are more than happy to give. the 55 canes the carvers have done over the past four years have gone mostly to wounded veterans to the wars in iraq and afghanistan. with wars in those countries winding down and the carvers still want to help, they have now reached out to local vet homes and doing canes for veterans of the korean war and world war ii. even carving one recently for a 100-year-old veteran. nbc bay area news. >> if you know of someone doing something nice for others, garvin would love to hear from you. go to our website and search bay area proud. today in the bay is back in two minutes. the battle over beach access at martin's beach. the judge's decision on whether he can keep the gate closed. get ready to pay for more water.

7:46 am
the nation became more red in the 2014 election. california remains blue. larry joins us now. we just learned last night she lost her seat in the senate. she's the last of the deep south democrats. here in california we remain deeply democratic. talk to us about the differences in california and the imp implications for the rest of the country.
7:47 am
they had no help here because neither of the states were up for election. a better comparison can be made in house of representatives nationwide. republicans added 13 seats to their majority. get this, that gives them the largest margin since 1928. they are living it up. look at the data here and it's pretty impressive in terms of where the republicans are today versus where they were just a month ago. here another story. democrats increase their numbers from 38 members of congress to 39. in fact, california was the only, yes the only state in the nation where congressional democratics improved their lot. >> let's talk about how we account for that. how the democratic candidates were really able to maintain their strongholds. >> a couple of factors here.
7:48 am
first, democrats in california had a huge registration over republicans. can't overlook this. it's 44% to 28%. second, republicans here just didn't have enough funding. some key congressional races that were decided by a handful of votes. out spent him three to one. money counts in close races. republicans don't short of funding. >> let's talk about the california legislature now. that were some republican gains there. >> you're right. there were some but modest.
7:49 am
just enough gains to take the bloom off the democratic world by eating into the two-thirds majority democrats had in both chambers for the first time in a half century. what's two-thirds. why two-thirds? it's important because it takes that number to put constitutional measures on the ballots. democrats could have done those things alone as recently as a month ago. now you have to share the stage with republicans. democrats maintain large majority but not enough to control their destiny because of the two-thirds rule that we don't think about a lot of time. >> a lot of numbers to process. in the state legislature republicans have a bit more of a voice. you think that will lead to some
7:50 am
more, what do we call it, when they lock horns and we get the shut down. >> gridlock. >> the word escaped me this sunday morning. >> there is the take away. the nation went in one direction. last month, california, went another. not quite as strong in the past. there will be that gridlock. they will have a much harder time doing it this time. >> they all have to weigh in on the other side. a pleasure to have you with us this sunday morning. don't you go away. right after the break, still to come they are ready to brave the bay. the officer who took a chilly plunge to help make wishes come true.
7:51 am
7:52 am
welcome back on a sunday
7:53 am
morning. the only way to get you up to speed is on a sunday forecast. we're taking you live to palo alto. the fog had started to recede a bit. you can see that's valley fog. it's kind of hanging out over some of though higher tree tops this morning. the others they'll want you to keep in mind is we are going to see a steady stream of clouds today. it's not going to be overly s sun sunny. mainly cloudy skies are expected especially by this evening across the entire bay area as our next storm. you can see on the satellite and radar picture we don't have any rain just yet. the clouds very extensive across the entire coastline up towards oregon, washington state, down through the baa ja of californi. this system very widespread cloud cover but really only a little amount of rainfall. as we zoom in and take a look at the live radar we don't have any rain return. as we head through the afternoon and evening hours we start to
7:54 am
see the showers develop. today will be a dry day across the entire bay area. tonight around midnight the showers will push through. notice the band here. that's mid level moisture. by tomorrow morning the first showers will be points toward the golden gate bridge and north. everybody else not expecting a whole lot of rainfall with this system and the shower activity really going to stay isolated across the north bay. showers will continue through the day tomorrow. places like san jose, you're not expecting to see really anything. maybe a trace of an inch of rainfall with this system that will come through more like of a quarter of an inch. maybe in between a .1 of an inch. the bigger system, the more we're concerned about is the one that we'll move through wednesday and thursday.
7:55 am
this will produce lheavy rain like we saw this past week. this is our future cast at 6:00 on thursday. you can see the bright colors that denotes very heavy rain. rain rates up to an inch an hour. this rain will come down very heavy on thursday. we could be looking at localized flooding and potential for strong, damaging winds that could topple trees and bring down power lines. this system that will move through thursday will be more powerful and have lots of moisture to work with. we're talking anywhere from about an inch in the south bay to two inches in san francisco and maybe even more than that in the north bay. we could actually see our rainfall amounts very impressive this upcoming week. kind of like what we saw this past week. overall the rainy pattern does continue. showers tonight and then again they will taper off tomorrow during the day. if you live in north bay the showers will continue through the day tomorrow and then we'll get that break tuesday and wednesday. one that's coming wednesday and
7:56 am
