good morning. i'm frank holland at cnbc global headquarters. here are today's top business headlines. wall street is set to open up in the red this morning. the markets rose yesterday with the dow up more than 170 points ahead of last night's state of the union address. investors were looking for clues on several big issues, including u.s. and china trade talks, drug prices and infrastructure. on today's watch list, a report on productivity and labor costs, and also earnings from automaker gm. this will probably be the talk of silicon valley today, facebook will start linking employee bonus to criteria such as making progress on social issues. previously they were judged on how their performance contributed to growing the company's user base and revenues. "the financial times" reports they'll be rewarded based on new goals ceo mark zuckerberg laid out last week such as tackling
the spread of fake news and privacy. it's unclear what metrics facebook will use and how it will track employee progress. google chrome has a new feature to help protect your personal data on the web. password checkup is an extension that will automatically alert you if it user name for a password may be compromised on a site you're visiting. if you get that warning, it means you may need to change your password. google has a database of more than 4 billion credentials it knows have been compromised. marcus and laura, back over to you. >> thanks, frank. coming up on "today in the bay," kari tracking the frigid temperatures out there. >> you need a heavier coat before you head out the door. here is a live look in fremont, and our temperatures start out in the mid-30s, and then go only into the upper 40s today. we'll get a look at all of our microclimates, and what's ahead, coming up next. kari, a smooth drive from fremont where you are on the nimitz up to oakland. the nimitz itself is fine and in between it's the san mateo bridge. if you are making that
a very good wednesday morning to you. very cold wednesday morning, in fact. taking a live look outside, it's clear out there. no cloud cover to keep us warm this morning. freezing in some parts. when will the warmup happen? in july. no. we'll have the full forecast coming up with kari in a bit. this is what everyone was talking about yesterday here,
and you saw it all live here on "today in the bay" yesterday, we're talking about that snow there. check what nbc bay area sky ranger captured flying over the baytops. the temperatures have been cold enough to preserve snow in mt. hamilton, mt. diablo and contra costa county. folks are taking it all in. park rangers left the gates open after sundown so everyone could enjoy that. >> it was about two hours, two hours to the gate and got to the ee moving. >> it happens, about three times a year. you just can't rush it. you just have to let people leave. >> the park ranger says he's going to keep the roads heading to the summit closed for safety reasons once they feel it's safe, they will start allowing people in, and kari, snow sticking around in some of the spots this morning for us. >> yes, because it's freezing out there. did yoe k a snowman away from the top of the
mountain, they were like taking it home with them. that's really cool. >> preserve it. >> carpool. >> sit in the front yard. >> so it is freezing in parts of the bay area, and a little message came up inside my car that said "ice possible, drive with caution" or "drive with care" so i advise you to do the same. as we take a live look outside in walnut creek, mostly clear skies. here is a look at our temperatures right now, below freezing in fairfield and santa rosa, ukiah. so some of us are headed out the door with near freezing or freezing temperatures. it's also frosty and we'll look at how our temperatures have changed over the last 24 hours. most of us are feeling anywhere from three to five degrees difference as you step out the door. on your way out to the fruitvale b.a.r.t. station, it is back in the upper 30s. make sure you're wearing a few extra layers and we're going to see those temperatures slowly warm up. you won't regret being
overdressed, and we are going to see chilly temperatures for the next couple of days and watch this storm system approach, here in time for the weekend, so as we get a look at what to expect over the next couple of days, going hour by hour, by friday, once again, the rain starts to roll in during the afternoon, and it will be cold enough for some of our higher elevations in the north bay to experience some snow once again. and the rest of the bay area seeing some waves this may end as another wintry mix or some snow for the first part of next week, but as of now, it looks like it moves out of here fairly quickly, and then looking at the potential of getting anywhere from one to possibly nearly two inches of rain in the santa cruz mountains. we have a couple more days to dry out but look at how cold it's going to be, below freezing again tomorrow morning after seeing high temperatures reach into the low 50s today, and showers off and on throughout the weekend into the start of next week. we'll see it clearing out, but
it will stay chilly. as we head over to mike, now you're taking us to the san mateo bridge. >> i am, kari, but there's a problem getting there. i have the live pictures showing you the span itself. 92 is clear, crystal clear, crispy air, of course. going across the bridge is not the problem. getting there is the issue from the nimitz freeway. that's the only spot where we have slowing. you may want to choose the dumbarton bridge, if you're choosing between the two, when you make your morning commute. the reason being right now, and since last night, about 11:20, 11:30, they've had two lanes shut down between the nimitz here at hesperian on-ramp and industrial. there's a lot of pothole your freeway seeing more traffic building the last 20 minutes since we've been on the air. this will be a slower drive until they clear that, and crews have said, they may take up to 6:00, but that's just a5:15, so we'll track that. north of the bay bridge is a smooth, easy drive through contra costa county and the maze. no backup at the toll plaza.
there is a crash, a disabled vehicle 101 at lincoln and looks like it's minor slowing at the scene, and 101 over here through palo alto, a smooth drive. these headlights going north and compared to yesterday, that roadway looks completely dry and that's good news, folks, but it is, again, as kari said, cold out there so you might get some ice in the farther areas, up north, for example, in the smaller bridges. back to you. >> play it safe out there. thanks, mike >> it is 4:49. this morning, we're waiting for an update on the condition of a driver who slammed his car into a contrstic officer's cruiser. it happened last night at main street and empire avenue in oakley, this is video you see of that wreckage. the officer, from oakley police, was on his way to a call when the other car slammed into his, right in the middle of the intersection. the man inside the other car was stuck inside until fire cmanage. he was rushed to the hospital. as for the officer, he suffered an injury to his knee and he is said to be doing okay this morning. >> 4:50. tesla appears to quickly be
putting the brakes on the amazon store offering tesla merchandise. when the website electric first reported it yesterday, the page offered assorted tesla gear and accessories including hoodies, iphone cases and die-cast toy cars. we went on the page and tesla pulled it perhaps only temporary. tesla has attempted to sell merchandise on its own website and teamed up in the past with other retailers. you might notice a new messenger tool on facebook, you can delete a message. before only ceo mark zuckerberg could do it. pull the message you'd like to delete, press and hold on it, select "delete" at the bottom of the screen, and select "remove for everyone." in ten minutes, the message will be gone. southwest airlines takes a major step toward offering service to hawaii. the company made its first test flight from oakland to honolulu yesterday. federal safety inspections were on board for the boeing 737 800
series but no civilian passengers were on board. the flight is the first of several airlines to take with regulators before getting the okay to sell seats to the public. all right, guys, if you were hoping to have a chance with hollywood darling jennifer lawrence, you have to give up that dream for now, at a ring oh they've been dating since june of last year. she was last seen wearing a massive ring enjoying a celebratory dinner with her fiance in new york city over the weekend. >> i was that close. >> there's other fish in the sea. >> oh, yeah, i'm going swimming. coming up here on "today in the bay," "nbc bay area responds." >> an airline sends them to a different airport, so who is on the hook for getting them to where they were actually going in the first place? i'm consumer investigator chris chmura, "nbc bay area responds," next. but first, happening now, a warning this morning, before you feed your dog breakfast, hills

family whose international flight wound emat a different airport. >> claire darling says she and her family were flying from london back to san jose when british airways canceled their flight and flew them to san francisco instead. when the plane landed, the darling family of four loaded themselves and six suitcases into an uber suv, the ride from sfo to san jose cost $225.77. the darlings expected british airways to cover that bill, but claire says the airline only paid them 5.73. so she turned to us. we filed an inquiry with british airways, a spokesman told us "i have given this to our customer relations team and they will be in touch with ms. darling." they were. that same day, and covered the full $225.77. our teams log more than 200 air
