5:00 am
>> mmm. >> okay, dark and early. >> "early" is fine. >> you're very bright and awake right now. >> i am, on this monday morning. i'm marcus washington. >> and i'm laura garcia. coming off, well it should be a three-day weekend for a lot of folks out there. >> it is. >> veterans day as well. hoping for a nice forecast. >> it is. it's going to start out clear for most of the bay area. we are seeing that as we take a live look in san francisco, just some light patches of fog, as you get ready to head out, we'll see temperatures in the low 50s, and san francisco about 65 degrees at noon. we will get some sun today, we'll talk more about what we're expecting inland. mike, you are expecting a lighter commute. >> at least for the early morning commute because we should have fewer drivers because a lot of businesses and schools are out of service today because of saluting those who have been in service for our country. we're looking at the a nice easy drive for the green sensors, we showed you the south bay, up
5:01 am
into the north bay, and here is contra costa county, right in the middle, and it's moving nicely to the middle of the screen, which is the bay bridge. one issue, low clouds hovering around so you may find a patch or two of fog, just like right here coming off the 880 overcrossing and we opened one more cash lane but they're not all open just yet. back to you. >> thank you, mike. 5:01 right now. it is a crucial week in the impeachment inquiry of president trump and goes public in two days. >> things are eheating up on capitol hill. lawmakers are making final decisions who will testify after republicans submitted their wish list. "today in the bay's" tracie potts is live in washington watching who makes the cut. tracie? >> hi there, marcus and laura. good morning. good morning, everyone. these hearings start on wednesday, and democrats have already picked the people they want to testify this week, but republicans have some requests, their wish list went in this weekend. now remember how this works. democrats are running these hearings, so they get to say yes
5:02 am
or no to who testifies. republicans want to hear from hunter biden, joe biden's son, who had business in ukraine. that was part of the conversation president trump was having on the phone with ukraine's leader. democrats say that has nothing to do with whether or not the president traded money, whether it was a quid pro quo, whether he traded u.s. funds for a political favor, and that the theory is that he has been pushing has been debunked so no, they're giving a no to joe biden on this one or to hunter biden on this one, and his business partner. the other person republicans want to hear from is the whistle-blower, democrats say no to that also because more people with firsthand knowledge have now come forward, whereas the whistle-blower did not have firsthand knowledge and that person's identity is protected. so two nos so far on republican requests with the public hearings set to begin on wednesday. >> you were talking about the republicans' wish list.
5:03 am
so is there anyone on that list that democrats will allow to testify, tracie? >> so they've asked for eight people, including some unknown like the informants of the whistle-blower. tim morrison, who was a former aide to president trump on the national security council, an expert on russia and europe, has testified privately. he is on their wish list. he may get a yes. kurt volker, who also testified privately, former special envoy to ukraine may also get the okay from democrats since they've already talked to him. >> something we will certainly be watching for, tracie, thank you so much for that report. our scott mcgrew will drive much deeper into all things politics. join him for the "checks and balances" segment coming up for you this morning at 5:45. vice president mike pence will be here in california this week for a jam-packed visit. he's set to visit santa ana and monterey on wednesday and then
5:04 am
travel to the south bay on thursday, with a stop at nasa ames research center in mountain view. the vice president will tour the facility and give remarks to employees before heading back to washington. if you're on one of the b.a.r.t. platform this is morning you'll probably hear a lot of talk about this next story. b.a.r.t. riders still protesting how police handled a man who was cited for eating on one of the platforms. this morning, the story has its own hashtag and the number one story right now on "today in the bay's" bob redell live outside pleasant hill b.a.r.t. to tell us what's next in this case. bob? >> reporter: laura, this weekend a number of riders posted pictures of themselves eating on a b.a.r.t. platform under the hashtag bunch on b.a.r.t. again this was the protest of what happened last week. take a look at that video, this is video of an encounter with b.a.r.t. police and a man who was eating on the platform here at pleasant hill b.a.r.t., which is against state law. the video does not capture the start of this confrontation, so it's not clear how it escalated
5:05 am
so quickly but you can see the officer holding onto the man's backpack. he repeatedly asks the man for i.d., the man refuses, then the officer says he'll be detained. >> you singled me out, out of all these people? >> you're eating. >> so what? >> it's against the law. >> go away. >> reporter: the man was handcu handcuffed, cited and released on saturday. people organized this informal protest at the embarcadero station. they brought breakfast sandwiches, ate them on the platform, daring b.a.r.t. police to arrest them. their goal is to get the state to decriminalize eating on b.a.r.t., which they describe as an inane law. one of the b.a.r.t. directors, janice lee was there and wanted to hear what people thought about the incident. one question is how often is this no eating rule enforced. nbc bay area has filed a request through the freedom of information act to try and find
5:06 am
out, and of course we bring an update when we get that information. a b.a.r.t. spokesperson tells us this man was not cooperative, and that they needed to get his name in order to issue that citation. they say that's why that encounter went on for as long as it did. b.a.r.t. police say they've also sent the video to a police auditor for review. reporting live at pleasant hill b.a.r.t., bob redell, "today in the bay." >> i guess a lot of people are learn being this law. thanks, bob. over the weekend things got rowdy on san francisco city streets, this is video of a sideshow. the chp says happened last night, just below the van ness on-ramp to 101. as far as we know, officers did not get there in time to make any arrests but sideshows continue to be a problem in the bay area. oakland police had extra staffing in place to crack down on illegal sideshows there. a follow-up on a case of a mural hit by vandals in san francisco's mission district. several panels were tagged with black spray paint in an attack
5:07 am
discovered on saturday morning. the mural contains depictions of different latino community leaders. one artist who helped restore the historic work was outraged when he found out what happened. >> man, i was just fuming, because we had just restored it about a year and a half ago, and it got tagged by gang bangers about a year and a half ago, and we came and just to touch up the damage and we wound up restoring the whole mural. >> the artist says when they lost restored the mural they applied a layer of sealer. he comes on coming back to see if he can wipe the spray paint off of that sealer. levi's stadium will be rocking tonight as the undefeated san francisco 49ers play for a nationwide audience. we have all you need to know, whether you're headed to leeveigh's or just watching from home.

5:08 am
lots of life-long niners fans and maybe some new ones, too. we're not going to call them band wagon fans. the niners are the only undefeated team going into tonight's nationally televised game against the 7-2 seattle seahawks. san francisco quarterback jimmy garoppolo says the seahawks and their quarterback russell wilson do a good job with pretty much everything, but they have to deal with bay area fans. >> it will be fun. it will be a good atmosphere. levi's was rocking last time when we played carolina and i wouldn't expect anything less for monday night. the faithful will be loud. >> reporter: and it's probably a good thing the game is going to be on tv and livestreamed because our resident sports nut sean murphy looked for tiblgts for us. $215 is the cheapest ticket on ticketmaster, $1,400 for the good seats, he says on stubhub but you can watch for free via the 49ers app or and it's going to be televised on espn, if you have cable.
5:09 am
levi's stadium says it is going to be packed for monday night football. 1:45 parking lot is open, 3:15 gates open. heavy traffic is a warn willing and urging folks to consider public transportation and telecommuting so perhaps a good thing it might be a day off for a lot of folks. i want to know if you're watching the game tonight where you're watching the game, if you're watching at home, what snacks you'll have. find me on twitter, facebook and instagram. i'm going to go with the veggie tray and my family will protest and bust something out of the freeze per. >> are they coming to your house? >> reporter: no, just my little ones and my husband. keep it simple, it's monday night. >> you know what i do to feel healthy? i take the veggie sticks, celery or carrots and put a potato chip with it. >> i eat all of them with a martini. >> extra crunchy. >> problem solved. >> that's a health streak, laura. >> i'll be at the office tonight. trying to get him to go. thanks a lot.

sparsely populated on the northbound side of the nimitz. we'll talk about why these folks were not allowed to drive on the nimitz over the weekend, coming up. and very good morning to you. it's veterans day. the stock markets open, bond markets are closed. stocks took a break from their recent rally on friday, after president trump cast doubts on the progress being made with the chinese on trade and tariffs. san francisco's gap says it will break old navy into a separate company. head of the fed jerome powell will face congress this week to talk about the economy and interest rates. the president trying to make the case the impeachment proceedings are hurting the economy, so no doubt someone will ask powell about that. the impeachment hearings are filtering their way into all kinds of things. the president calling for the unmasking of the whistle-blower. it would be illegal for a government worker to do that. facebook says it's going to take down the ads that claim to name the whistle-blower, the posts as
5:16 am
well. youtube is doing the same. meanwhile, twitter is going to allow it. these are all separate companies, they can do what they want, but tech's response to major issues has been scatter shot. in the case of political ads, stwiter won't allow them. facebook will. mark zuckerberg at georgetown tried to explain facebook's policy on free speech going forward and then the next day, almost the next day started to change all those policies and been adjusting them ever since. facebook says its policy of taking down the whistle-blower's name is consistent with its rules as facebook prohibits the naming of witnesses if they would face intimidation and clearly, clearly that's what's happening with the whistle-blower. >> interesting. thank you, scott. 5:16 right now. wildfires have become so common in california, more big companies are voicing greater concerns especially in their annual reports. the number of s&p 500 companies
5:17 am
flagging wildfires as a risk factor is up dramatically. in 2010 it was just nine companies. this year, 37. among those adding wildfires to their filings are marriott and monster beverage. when you're the queen of pop, time is immaterial. the problem is, we're living in a material world and so madonna's problem of starting her concerts way past the scheduled start time has set a new lawsuit into motion. fans say she's making them wait two-plus hours past the posted start time before taking the stage, and now a florida man is suing, calling it breach of contract between the singer and the ticket buyers. his suit cites the upcoming miami concert that recently had its start time pushed two hours later to 10:30 p.m., making reselling his ticket at cost value really impossible. not to mention that's a little too late to get into the groove. ♪ get into the groove
5:18 am
>> so how long is it too long to wait? that's interesting. rarely anyone starts on time. >> but two hours late. >> that's a long time. >> i think so, too. >> you have sitters. >> 30 minutes is pretty reasonable. >> 20. >> okay, 20, 30. >> let's push it and see how late, we'll start the show at 4:45. >> yeah that's going to really fly. welcome to the "today" show. >> you're all going to sit around and wait for us. all right, so let's get up and ready for the day. here is a live look outside in fremont, as we get ready to head out the door, we have clear visibility in some spots. we've seen the fog kind of drifting around, but it's not as widespread and dense as we've seen recently, so antioch, we have temperatures in the upper 40s this morning, that will lead in to low 70s by noon. we'll have another nice and warm day. we're at 79 degrees in livermore. 77 in napa, and we're up to 80 today in santa rosa, while san francisco stays in the low 70s.
5:19 am
low humidity will cause some issues today especially in the north bay hills, in these areas where we'll see the humidity levels drop below 20%, just temporarily this afternoon, as the winds pick up, so that could mean a high fire danger, especially for the higher elevations in the north bay, we'll be watching it also for our east bay hills, and most of us won't feel much of a breeze today, but it's going to be those upper elevations where those winds start to pick up a little bit more today as we go in through the next couple of days as well. high pressure remaining in control, but it will slide off towards the east and allow for some cooler temperatures to move in by wednesday into thursday. we'll also see a shift in the wind. that should create a little bit more humidity going in to thursday and friday, as high pressure builds once again for the weekend. it warms up a few more degrees, and that chance of rain once again that we were hoping for will stay to the north of the bay area. so we're still being blocked by high pressure from getting any chances of showers in the
5:20 am
forecast. it is dry all week, at least it will cool off when we're not dealing with extremely warm temperatures. we're up to about 70 for our high on friday. and mike, you've been tracking the roads. how is it looking with that fog? >> so far looking all right. we're able to see through some of that fog which is at the bay bridge toll plaza and we're clear in fremont. roadway 880 through fremont saturday and sunday nights had closures because of a gas line being moved or located underneath the freeway, that's all cleared without any problems, if you didn't know about it, now you know what is going on and if you slept through it, excellent, congratulations. over here we're looking at a smooth drive, don't sleep through your alarm if you have to go to work. there are folks out there, the traffic is so light a lot of vacations for schools and businesses and it shows at the bay bridge toll plaza, a little light fog, keep that in mind. back to you. >> thank you, mike. >> thanks, mike. more to tell you this morning on "today in the bay," an off-duty police officer shoots and kills a man in a vallejo gas station. coming up at 5:30, what we're
