republicans finished their wish list. tracie potts is live watching who makes the cut. tracie? >> hey guys, good morning. so democrats have said no to hunter biden, joe biden's son testifying, saying it's not relevant to the impeachment inquiry and saying no to the whistle-blower, because they say that testimony is now unnecessary, and the whistle-blower's identity should remain protected. the whistle-blower did not have firsthand information. several people who are set to testify do. the hearings are set to begin on wednesday. the acting ukraine ambassador are set to testify and another state department official, the former ukraine ambassador on friday. >> tracie, is there anyone on the republican's list the democrats will allow to testify? >> there are a couple of people who already testified privately
that republicans want to hear from in the public hearings. they are likely to get a yes. >> all right, tracie potts live in washington, thank you very much. every morning scott mcgrew also gives us analysis of the news out of washington, depending on when you wake up, you can see him at 5:45, or stay tuned and watch another new report at 6:45. you can also follow him on twitter and facebook. if you're headed to the b.a.r.t. platform this morning, or just out and about, you're probably hearing about this next story here. b.a.r.t. riders are still protesting how police handled a man who was cited for eating on one of the platforms. this morning, that story has its own hashtag and it's the number one story right now on nbcbayarea.com. bob redell is live to tell us more what's happening next in this case. bob? >> reporter: marcus, this weekend a number of riders posted pictures of themselves eating on a b.a.r.t. platform under the hashtag brunch on
b.a.r.t. this protesting what happened last week. look at this video that sort of went viral last week, of a b.a.r.t. police encounter with a man 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 conversation so it's not clear how it escalated so quickly. you can see the officer holding on to the man's backpack. he repeatedly asked the man for identification, the man refuses and then the officer says this man will be detained. >> you single me out, out of all these people. >> you're eating. >> so what? >> it's against the law. >> no way. >> reporter: the man was handcuffed, cited and then released. on saturday, people organized an informal protest at the embarcadero station brought their own breakfast sandwiches, they ate them on the platform daring b.a.r.t. police to arrest them. their goal is to get the states to decriminalize eating on b.a.r.t. which they describe as
an insane law. one of the b.a.r.t. directors janice lee wanted to hear what people thought about the incident. how often is this no eating rule enforced? nbc bay area has filed a request through the freedom of information act to try to find out. we'll bring an update if and when we get that information. a b.a.r.t. spokesperson tells us this man was not cooperative with the b.a.r.t. police officer, refused to provide his name, which is why that engagement lasted as long as it did. b.a.r.t. also says they have sent this video to a police auditor for review. reporting live here to pleasant hill b.a.r.t. station, bob redell, "today in the bay." >> law is law but you think this is one of the laws the officer was reminding him, you can't do this, and move on, but -- >> a lot of people are talking about that one. thanks a lot, bob. 6:05. over the weekend, things apparently got a little rowdy on san francisco city streets, this is video of a sideshow. the chp says it happened last night, just below the van ness on-ramp to 101.
as far as we know officers didn't make any arrests but sideshows continue to be a common bay area problem. oakland police had extra staffing in place to crack down on illegal sideshows there. a follow-up for you now to the case of a mural hit by vandals in san francisco's mission district. several panels were tagged with black spray paint discovered 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 last 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. >> it's 6:06 right now. levi's stadium will be rocking tonight as the
undefeated san francisco 49ers play in front of a national tv audience. we have all you need to know, whether you're headed to levi's or just watching from home. "today in the bay's" kris sanchez joins us live in santa clara this morning, and kris, this is going to be a big night i'm excited for this one. >> reporter: you know me, i love football so i'll watch almost any game but definitely watching tonight and a lot of 49ers lifelong fans are watching, maybe some new fans, too. we won't call them band wagon fans because that's not very nice. the niners are undefeated going into tonight's matchup, nationally televised game against the 7-2 seattle seahawks, looking to improve their record. san francisco quarterback jimmy garoppolo says the seahawks and their qb russell wilson will do a good job with everything, but they also 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: it is a good thing the game is going to be on tv and livestreamed because our resident sports nut assignment editor sean murphy looked for tickets for us this morning. $215 is the cheapest ticket on ticketmaster, $1,400 for the good seats. but you can watch for free via the 49ers app or 49ers.com and it's going to be televised on espn, if you have cable. levi's stadium tweeting it will be packed for monday night football, 1:45 the parking lots open, 3:15 gates open. kickoff is at 5:15. santa clara pd is warning of heavy traffic and urging folks to consider public transportation and telecommuting if you stay off to honor our veterans, hopefully that will work out as well. i want to know if you're watching the game, where you're watching, what snacks you're serving as you watch the game. find me on instagram, facebook and on twitter as well. laura and marcus? >> because we'll come wherever the best snacks are.
>> that's true. see you tonight, kris. >> reporter: see you tonight. >> sounds good. all right we all may be a little tired tomorrow but it will be worth it. go niners. >> yeah, we're going to have some great weather and that's part of the perks of being part of the faithful, that you have tickets before this season started so if you're trying to get the tickets now, it's going to be a lot more expensive, so here is a look at our forecast for today. it's going to be great. our temperatures start out in the mid-70s. 70 degrees at kickoff, and then at halftime, jacket weather. so it's going to cool off fairly quickly. looking at all of our microclimates, and for today we're going to see at noon some low 70s for fremont, mid-70s in livermore. san francisco will be in the upper 60s but we will make it up to about 70 degrees today, and the inland valleys in the upper 70s so we'll be warm for this time of year. we will have a cooldown in the forecast, so i'll have a look at that in a few minutes. mike, you have good news for two
commute spots. >> that's right, the first one we'll talk about is the bay bridge toll plaza, where there are no metering lights, and the crash that was reported just past the toll plaza is over on the right shoulder. so it shouldn't be much of a distraction, because traffic is flowing so smoothly here over at the toll plaza itself. as we get our way around the rest of the bay, we'll show you traffic flowing, maybe we won't. we'll talk about san jose where the crash cleared from the south bay and that's great news, north 101 is recovering from 680 up to old oakland road and see if we can recover our computer, it should be an easy fix. we'll send it back to you. >> thanks, mike. 6:10. coming up next talking about madonna. >> a story mentioned moments ago. how late is too late for one fan? the claim is in a lawsuit and the material girl's response. politics definitely making its way into our social media, right, but the way that social media is dealing with it a scattered shot. i'll look when "today in the bay" continues.
good morning. right now at 6:13, we have a beautiful sunrise under way right now. as we take a live look outside in san jose skies are clear but we will see a cool start to the day, upper 40s ads you head out in willow glen, throughout the day we go from 47 to 72 at 2:00 a nice warmup for the rest of the afternoon. we'll talk about what's ahead with some cooler air moving in
we have a new issue in oakland i'm tracking, headed into downtown, past downtown san jose north 101 recovering from the earlier crash on the shoulder, all lanes are cleared for 101 at 880. a good morning to you. it is veterans day. the stock market is open. the bond markets are closed. stocks took a break from their recent rally on friday, after president trump cast doubt 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 and youtube is doing the same, owned by going willing. meanwhile twitter is allowing the name to circulate. 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, twitter won't allow them. facebook will. youtube says it's examining the issue. recently, mark zuckerberg made a major address at georgetown, where he explained facebook's policy on free speech going forward and then almost the very next day started making 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 older rules as facebook prohibits the naming of witnesses if they would face
intimidation and this case obviously the whistle-blower would. >> interesting. >> it is. >> thanks, scott. >> 6:15 for you right now. when the queen of pop is, you know, the queen, sometimes she just takes her time, but some people say that is just too long. so the problem here is that we're "living in a material world" so madonna's starting way past the start time. fans says she's making them wait, get this, more than 20 hours after the posted start times before taking the stage. one florida man calls it a breach of contract between the singer and ticket buyer. he cites the upcoming miami concert where she pushed that start time to 10:30. >> it's a long time to wait. a couple hours? >> even for madonna. >> that's 2 1/2 hours after it should have started. >> before you get there, find parking. >> you get a sitter. >> that late you should do a
thank you for coming, thank you for coming, for all of your guests who had to wait for you. it's a little too long. >> yes. >> we don't have to wait for the forecast. kari won't make you wait. go ahead. >> looks good. we are starting out with clear skies for most of us. throughout the day we have some beautiful conditions expected, as we start out with cool air. here is a look at our beautiful sunrise, taking a look at palo alto, very colorful as well, and so we're going to see our clear skies staying with us throughout today. upper 40s as you head out the door. and we go from 47 in palo alto to 67 at 11:00, and 72 degrees at 1:00 today. getting out the door on the other side of the bay, looking at warm springs b.a.r.t. forecast, we are going to see it up to about 47 degrees at 7:00 and then making it into the upper 60s and low 70s. so we are going to warm up nicely, well above normal. we should only be in the upper 60s this time of year. we're up to 78 degrees in san
jose, and we're looking at a high in gilroy up to 82 degrees. we'll see a few low 80s but mostly 70s across the east bay, with oakland today reaching 75 degrees. hayward will be up to 74. also 74 in san mateo. san francisco reaching 70 degrees and we'll reach 76 degrees today in novato and the other issue will be the very low humidity, we'll see especially in the north bay. we will have an increase in the winds but it's mostly for the upper elevations and when you have the relative humidity dropping at about 20%, the air is critically dry, but we will see it coming up a little bit more during the overnight hours but the other issue once again will be a breezy wind picking uhm and some of the higher elevations, most of us won't feel this gusty wind, and then as we go into the next couple of days, our winds are expected to stay breezy, as a couple of cold fronts move through. high pressure is moving away, but still we're not looking at any rain here. it will allow for some cooler
air to move in, going into the middle of the week. we'll see a shift in our wind direction, and then going into the weekend, high pressure building once again, but notice what's happening here. there are some cold fronts, there is rain across the region, but we're missing out on it, because of high pressure blocking it, steering it up to the north, and around most of this region. so we are going to continue on with some dry weather in the forecast, looking at high temperatures cooling off for the rest of the week. we're starting out today, up to 80 degrees, but then some low 70s by the end of the week. mike, your maps are back, are they in good form now? >> they are in good form, kari, yes, they are, thank you, and so is the commute at least in this live shot. 101 recovering nicely, because of the light overall traffic flow. our camera north of the 280/680 interchange we have good flow right there. there are patches that are still recovering as far back as tully. we see some slowing but our partners at waze say everything is starting to move much better
headed toward 880 and oakland road. the crash is on the shoulder if it's not completely cleared by now and the rest of the south bay looks great. remember this is a holiday for many businesses and most schools and so we will find a lighter flow of traffic around the bay, the tri-valley starting to show a little bit of build and no problems for the nimitz or highway 101 on either side of the bay. walnut creek south 680 there was an earlier issue a disabled vehicle around south main, they should be clearing that shortly to the shoulder. a short section of slowing past that scene and north 880 around gift reports of a car fire, might be a big rig with smoking tires on the shoulder. usually that causes a big backup. traffic at the coliseum at speed, nicely spaced and no problem on the map right there at 12323rd. the bay bridge is a smooth drive and at the bay bridge look at this, folks, if you're not looking, enjoy that view. >> wow. >> laura, got a little wow! going on, because there are no metering lights. it's light right now. it will build midday and afternoon, that's what happens, typically on a holiday monday.

jenny complained, but ended up paying an additional $35 just two months later for a proper renewal with an extended expiration date. next jenny applied for a refund of the initial $28 that she paid and didn't get her money back, so she contacted us. we contacted the dmv and within 24 hours, she got her 28 bucks back. the dmv in a statement said that miss maclin was right to request a refund and we regret it took so long and so many attempts before she was issued one. head over to nbcbayarea.com/responds with your consumer complaints or call us 888-996-tips. >> thanks so much. 6:25 right now. more than three months after the mass shooting at the gilroy garlic festival, gun control is expected to be a hot topic during a town hall in campbell this morning. state assembly member evan lowe is expected to sit town with the founder of the moms demand gun safe access in america. the event is free and gets under

disabled vehicle south 680 around north main and another disabled vehicle around the walnut creek interchange. we'll check to see if chp sorts them out as separate incidents or a duplicate report. no other real reports throughout most of the bay and the south bay. we have recovery the earlier crash at oakland road cleared from north 101, our partners at waze saw things starting to clear up from tully, suddenly at tully, another crash reported and slowdown approaching there. this stretch of the bay shore moves well. back to you. developing for you this morning, in the north bay, vallejo police are investigating a deadly shooting involving an officer not from its own department. >> "today in the bay's" pete suratos joins us live from vallejo police headquarters with details. pete? >> reporter: good morning to you guys. as you mentioned involving an officer not with the vallejo police department. they say the shooting involved an off-duty officer with the richmond police department. there's a lot of unanswered questions on exactly why or what led to the shooting taking
place. i was going to show you a scene from vallejo when the shooting took place yesterday. police got a call 5:30 yesterday in vallejo near fairgrounds drive of a man suffering from gunshot wounds. he eventually died from the injuries on the scene. his family has identified him as 38-year-old eric reason of vallejo. friends say he was a father of six children. a large crowd gathered at the scene last night holding hands in a prayer circle for the vallejo man. family and friends say they want answers as to why this deadly shooting took place. >> all i know is this needs to be investigated. i will not lie down and let this go away. i believe that the police involved shooting as usual, he was a working man. >> one of the best people i've ever known, with a huge heart, father of six, just got his life together. >> reporter: as i mentioned, vallejo police say the man involved was an
off-duty richmond police officer, apparently driving the mercedes you see in that video. some witnesses say they heard seven to ten gunshots. but the solano county d.a. and vallejo pd will handle the investigation moving forward. reporting live, pete suratos for "today in the bay." >> pete, thank you. 6:33 right now. developing this morning, protests in hong kong have taken another violent turn, after a police officer shot a protester point blank. we're about to show you the video t may be disturbing. we'll freeze it before the man is shot. [ speaking in foreign language ] [ gunfire ] >> cnbc confirms the man survived and has undergone surgery. separately hong kong police say protesters elsewhere set a man on fire, that man is now said to be in critical condition.
there's no word yet about what led up to either of those incidents. most of hong kong this morning is at a standstill. coast guard rescue crews never located one of four people on board a fishing boat that capsized saturday, 30 miles off the coast of bodega bay. this is video showing the rescue of two men and one woman after the boat capsized. the coast guard yesterday called for the search for the fourth person a man that may have been wearing a life jacket, but could not locate him despite an extensive search. leading bay area health provider kaiser permanente facing a world of uncertainty after the unexpected death of its leader, ceo bernard tyson. the 60-year-old died in his sleep early yesterday. he took over as chairman and ceo five years ago, after spending nearly 30 years with kaiser in various other roles. he pushed for affordable health care for all americans. at the same time in the wake of tyson's death a strike workers planned to start today
has been postponed. some 4,000 mental health professionals were planning to hold a five-day strike but the union believes it's inappropriate to do so. a new strike date has not been set. new this morning, movie director joel cohen and francis mcdorman are suing their marin neighbors over ongoing land dispute. according to "the chronicle," the lawsuit accuses the neighboring couple of ignoring historic property boundaries. they moved into their home in 2005, but there's been controversy between the neighbors over an area separating their land. if you're headed to the pump you'll notice prices are holding steady. gas prices rose by 32 cents between the end of september and mid-october but now experts say gas prices are staying level. they say it's because the demand for gasoline flips this time of year. the average price for a gallon of gas nationwide is $2.68.
the bay area those prices are sitting at about four bucks a gallon, which is the highest price you guessed it, right there in san francisco. happening today, if you have the right equipment, you have the rare chance this morning to see the planet mercury cross the sun. this is something that won't happen again until 2049. the transit started before dawn on the east coast but californians should be able to catch part of the event. of course looking directly at the sun is dangerous. you won't be able to notice much with your naked eye anyway. in 20 minutes at 7:00 a.m., oakland's space center opens and you'll be able to check it out with their specialized telescopes. >> that should be something nice to see in the sky. right now, what is it like on the roads, mike? >> i don't know, if you look toward the sun even just look away. >> i know, don't. >> you get to the roads my gosh don't do that. >> at all. >> we're looking to waze with our partners because we have all of our friends around the bay area at nbc bay area wazers, the
team they are on, north 101, an unnamed wazer did report this crash just as the backup started to form, we talked about it. we said thank you because we're polite and appreciate everybody sharing. we get out to the roadways and show you there aren't as many people sharing on the other maps because the volume of traffic throughout the south bay only shows 101 recovering from capital expressway up to tully, the earlier crash cleared and good recovery north toward oakland road. a short stretch of 101 is really bad slowing and that should start to move better over the next few minutes, i hope they can clear the lanes quickly as we've been doing all morning. the rest of the roads are clear and haven't had much of an issue as far as crashes. disabled vehicle the two reported near the walnut creek interchange were just one and no problems south 680 toward 24. >> coming off a nice weekend, hoping for another. >> it will be cooler this upcoming weekend. i thought it was warm during the middle of the day, so we're going to take it back to fall or where we should be for this time
of year with our high temperatures inland going from 80 today to the lower 70s by the weekend and for san francisco, we're looking at mid-70s for highs, just a few clouds here and there, especially during the morning hours. if you're planning to go to the tri-valley this weekend, expect a cool day on friday, only reaching 68 degrees and then we'll see some highs up to about 75 degrees by the end of the weekend. if you're going to the sierra, still no snow at least nature made snow. we're going to see the temperatures in the mid-50s on saturday, and then up to about 60 degrees on sunday. and carmel valley is looking like a great destination for the weekend. the coolest temperatures once again on friday, once that cold front moves through, and then we gradually warm up into the upper 70s. we'll talk more about what's going on today, the south bay temperature trend coming up in three minutes. >> sounds good, thanks, kari. >> 6:38. still ahead this morning, disturbing story out of california, in a classroom

a mistake but not itch peachable.

but unfortunately those changes do not include any rain. those storm systems are still being driven well up toward the north of the bay area, and there are several of them, but that high pressure remains in control. normally we're starting to head into the wettest time of the year, but so far, we haven't had a drop of rain, and so even as we go into the seven-day forecast, it will be dry going into all of this week, possibly early next week as well. we are going to at least have a cooldown, we're headed for highs in the low 70s by the end of the week. mike, you're checking back in at the toll plaza. >> by toll plaza i mean the most populated shot we have, the richmond to san rafael toll plaza, which actually just cleared over the last few minutes, kari. looking toward the westbound commute it's more populated or at least just as lightly populated as the bay bridge, where we have not seen metering lights all morning. this is the early commute on a holiday light today, traffic flowing around that portion of the bay, very light and even the
slowdown we had in walnut creek, 680, that disabled vehicle has cleared approaching 24 between main and 24, there's recovery now and pretty much all over the rest of that shot we do have a lighter flow of traffic. as we get down toward the rest of the bay, we see the map is froze. the rest of the bay the only slowing is northbound 101 coming through san jose from about tully road to 680, capitol expressway is the slowest stretch we have. 280 and 87 are clear, guys. back to you. >> thanks so much, mike. it's 6:53 right now. happening now, bitter cold weather is expected to shatter records across the midwest and east coast. over 200 record lows could be tied or set from today to wednesday. the arctic blast will bring below freezing temperatures to some places, a winter storm is bringing fresh snow to chicago. snow, chicago. o'hare international airport is canceling hundreds of flights. >> we're still in fall. all right. next a quick look at some of the top stories we have for you
