i'm not going to cooperate. >> reporter: later nunberg suggested he will cooperate. >> do you think that they have something on the president nchts i think they may. i think that he may have done something during the election but i don't know that. >> he doesn't know that for sure because he's incorrect. as we've said many times before there was no collusion with the trump campaign. >> reporter: another aide carter page is cooperating but skeptical. >> everything should be based on facts and unfortunately it's been pretty seldom focused on that thus far. >> reporter: democrats on the house committee investigating russia may also want to hear from nunberg. >> certainly if mr. nunberg has light to shed on what the president knew before that trump tower meeting, we would be interested in finding out. >> reporter: that meeting promised but produced nothing on rival hillary clinton. tracie potts, nbc news, washington. this is simply a tragic story to report near lake tahoe this morning. a san francisco woman and her young son were killed after they were buried in three feet of
snow. the alpine county sheriff's department says olga and her seven-year-old son were hit with a chunk of snow that fell from the roof of their vacation condo near kirkwood on sunday. rescuers searched for hours to find them and a neighbor eventually spotted ski gloves next to the condo and called police. they are the third and fourth skiers to die at california resorts since a major snowstorm late last week. a developing story a huge break in a cold case in the east bay. fremont police announced the arrest of david misch in a 30-year-old double murder case. believe police he killed michelle xavier and jennifer duey back in 1986. those murders left people in fremont living in fear for decades. the bodies of the two best trends were found naked, shot and stabbed along mill creek road. xavier's car was found six miles away at the mission valley shopping center. investigators say dna evidence along with interviews and

was so fun to do it and, i mean, it was a dream come true, it was a great crowd, great cause. san jose was so warm, the crowd was so nice to me. i think they kind of felt bad because i was like missing all the tennis balls even roger at one point was like, stop looking at me, you know, look at the ball. but it was just -- it was really -- it was like beyond -- beyond my dreams in every way and it was just the chance of a lifetime. >> i love it. and you practiced quite a bit for this. >> i know. it didn't show, but i did practice. >> come on. you were great. >> i did. i practiced really hard and actually that's one of the things that's been fun about t in fact, i got a text from my mom right after and she said, honey, you got a couple good shots in, now keep up with your tennis. it's fun to kind of get out of your comfort zone and try something new and i've always loved tennis but i've never really applied myself and it was fun to have a goal and to have a focus so i'm going to try to keep up with it. >> this really pushed you.

day. >> i thought you meant curling. program a computer and curl. >> a little something for everybody. al and savannah, thanks for taking the time to join us today. stick in the bay area, it's going to be a gorgeous day out there. >> i know, we -- >> we would love to have you stay. okay. so you can see more of savannah's big match upcoming up later on the "today" show, it starts of course at 7:00 right after "today in the bay." what good sports out there. of course we've got more news as well. banning gun shows in the south bay, that's coming up. the reason one santa clara county supervisor says these events need to boston. plus supporting west virginia teachers. new this morning the local group coming together to collect money for the strikers. san
good morning to you, it's 5:30 on your tuesday morning. it's a live look at san jose. it is supposed to be beautiful today. good morning everyone. thank you for joining us. i'm scott mcgrew marcus has the day off. >> and i'm laura garcia. let's check in with vianey arana in for kari hall this morning with a look at a pretty nice forecast for the day. >> you have that shot of san jose, i have this gorgeous shot overlooking san francisco. look at how stunning that is. we are also expecting to see a nice shift in our weather pattern. remember yesterday we were talking about that dry and warming trend, well, it's here and it's going to stay for the next couple days. at least the warming part is anyway. right now the temperatures in the 30s for the north bay, 37 degrees napa, hayward 44,
mountain view 38 degrees. look at some of your daytime highs just to give you an idea of who how amazing today will be, 66 degrees for oakland, 70 degrees for san jose. we are technically still in the wintertime so this is definitely above seasonable and probably one of the warmest days we've seen so far in the bay area. we will stay warm but how long will we stay dry? i will have that answer coming up in just a bit. that question always makes me look for my umbrella. looking over here we knew we weren't going to see clear roadways over here on the bay bridge. the metering lights are on and the backup fills in all the lanes just in the last couple minutes things have filled in for all the cash lines there. there's bay bridge toll plaza itself and there is a crash reported on the approach to 580. we will track that and i will let you know as it affects your drive to the toll plaza. peninsula 101 approach from westbound 92 just cleared the
roadway. look at your live shot from the san mateo bridge, on the hayward side all these folks are heading over there. happening today a possible limit on gun sales in the south bay. santa clara county supervisors will consider a controversial ban on gun shows at county fairgrounds. "today in the bay's" kris sanchez live in san jose with the reason why. good morning, kris. >> reporter: there is no gun show on the fair grounds marquis at this point, the next gun show isn't scheduled until april, but supervisor ken jaeger wants to stop the gun sales here on county property and he makes two main arguments, one, of course, is keeping guns off the streets of santa clara county, which he says is in line with the primary mission of the county, that is, the health and welfare of the people of santa clara, but the supervisor also makes a financial argument, there are only two gun shows here at the santa clara county fairgrounds and he says the county only made $6,000 off the code of the west
gun show in february. one counter argument is that ending gun shows could drive sales underground. >> if you are not doing it in the public eye under controlled circumstances i feel like there's just going to be, you know, back door deals going on. i mean, one way or the other you can't get rid of it so why not try to be a part of it and support it to the point where it's a little bit more controlled. >> reporter: so for perspective i pulled up a uc berkeley report on gun shows and gun violence that i covered back in october for you. it showed that there was a 70% spike in gun violence following gun shows in nevada. in california communities that were within driving distance, and that trend continued for two weeks after the nevada gun shows. there was no similar impact after california gun shows and some of the factors in that report seemed to be stricter regulations in our state and california's ten-day waiting period. santa clara county supervisors will take up this issue at their
meeting today. of course, you know that nbc bay area will be there. in san jose, kris sanchez, "today in the bay." at 5:33 this morning, san francisco teachers are using a slice of ingenuity to support striking teachers in west virginia. the strike there is now in its second week. teachers are seeking a 5% wage increase, state senators are offering a 4% raise. san francisco teachers launched a go fund me page to provide striking teachers three days worth of pizza and water. their goal was to raise $15,000, but donations have shot well past that total. now to developing news. the search continues for former nfl star aldon smith. we're learning he is expected to surrender to san francisco police today meantime the raiders officially decided to cut that troubled player from the team. >> "today in the bay's" pete suratos joins us live from san francisco with what we're learning about the investigation. good morning, pete. >> reporter: good morning to
you, laura and scott. it's just a never ending story when it comes to aldon smith and his legal troubles, but as you guys mentioned our sources are telling nbc bay area that he and his lawyer are expected to surrender here right behind me at the san francisco county jail on bryant street in san francisco, but tmz is reporting that apparently he may have checked into rehab following that incident on saturday night so we will be on stand by this morning to see exactly what happens here this morning or throughout the day, but here is the scene on saturday night in san francisco, police have issued a warrant for his arrest after he was accused of a domestic violence incident on saturday night in san francisco. a neighbor of the victim is the one who called 911, but according to dispatchers the victim in this also called saying that she was bitten. now, here is san francisco police explaining what kind of charges the former star nfl football player could be facing following his latest run in with the law. >> there was an arrest warrant that was signed by the district attorney's office citing charges
