eight days later, mira and romesh said they got a check for $1750. that is not the full amount of money they wanted and felt they were due, but they were happy to take it. we asked stevens creek toyota and costco what happened, but we didn't get an answer. there is a lesson here for everyone. car buying programs are more common than ever. they're advertised as making the buying process simple, finally. some are as easy as opening an app on your phone. it's great, right? but you still need to get everything in writing and hold those dealers to those commitments that they put on paper. if a consumer problem is driving you crazy, give us a call, 888-996-tips or go online nbcbayarea.com/respond. >> that's wacky. that's a big difference in the price. >> you got to fight that one for sure. >> and you punch the monitor. you made it work. >> i'm going go work on that. >> treat it nicely. it's an nbc monitor. >> see you, guys. a new deal from amazon just in time for the holiday season.

thanksgiving comes late this year, which means fewer shopping days before christmas. so amazon says it wants to make it easier. it's adding 10 million products to its free one-day delivery section. walmart and target have also offered similar delivery options to compete with amazon. how nice are they really being or do they want to sell stuff? >> they want to make it easy. >> thank you, amazon, for making it so easy. all right. jeff, take it away. >> we're going make the weather forecast easy. we'll give you everything you need to know to get ready for tomorrow. so bring you into our microclimate forecast. i did want to show you this view again. it really explains the top weather story we're dealing with right now. you can see the fog filtering in here throughout san francisco. being lit up pretty good there from some activity out there at at&t park. i even think we could have some drizzle tonight. if you're headed into the city, might even need those windshield wipers this evening. as we push into tomorrow morning, that fog is going to stay put as you get closer to the bay, also right at the
6:48 pm
immediate coastline. i think down here in the south bay we have a mostly sunny start, but notice the temperatures. everyone starting in the 40s tomorrow morning. so make sure you have that jacket out from the south bay over to the tri-valley. and also for the north bay. 44 degrees and some patchy clouds. best chance of that fog, of course, in san francisco. and also right near the bay for the east bay. so oakland, also into berkeley, maybe even some of the low clouds stretching back into orinda. we start with the clouds for the morning. we start with the cool temperatures. and then as we push into the afternoon, we should see sunshine away from the coast by noon. and that will leaveteeratures l. 73 here in los gatos. 74 in san jose. 76 in morgan hill. this is really nice. we're all soaking up these comfortable temperatures. but you want some rainfall. we'll have that update for you coming up in less than a minute. over here to the east bay, 79 in danville. 73 in vallejo. back to hayward, 71. the beaches will be chilly, 58.
6:49 pm
that fog will take some time to clear there back in half moon bay. 70 in redwood city. san francisco, 58 in the marina and the mission at 65. and we'll bring you up to the north bay. 72 in mill valley. 78 in napa and 75 in santa rosa. so we get that sunshine by the afternoon. i think the skies still could be a little hazy, though, from the ranch fire, well off to the north. so i wanted to make sure i did get this air quality update in here. air quality will be moderate. i don't think the smoke is going to be super thick. but if you have raepser to problems, you do want to watch out for that. what would clear this out? of course some rainfall. i am seeing a change in the forecast by next week. so that's some good news to at least start to get this pattern to shift a little bit. high pressure that's been blocking any kind of rainfall activity will begin to move to the east. that will allow a cooler flow by next thursday. so where do we get in with some rainfall chances? i think by november 15th, we get the rain building out here in the pacific. and eventually, this could get us some wet weather chances from
6:50 pm
november 20th into december 5th. i've upped this to about a 60% possibility right now. based on what we have. on our extended forecast this weekend, upper 60s right into veterans day on monday, here in san francisco. inland valleys also pretty smooth sailing here. upper 70s and also low 80s. notice by next wednesday with that change, we'll drop temperatures back down to 72 degrees. so not a bad forecast and hopefully some rain chances moving on in. we'll keep you updated as we get closer. >> thank you, jeff. up next, leaving a legacy on and off the football field. a remarkable story about a south bay football player. she's a nose tackle. so, as you can see, saving can be quite simple. case in point, if you get xfinity internet and mobile together, big savings on your wireless bill. write this down, this is important. amy, this is actually a life saving class. what a nice compliment, thank you!
