south bay. san francisco also 55 and we are tracking some slightly cooler temperatures for today, your microclimates forecast today, lower 70s across the bay area, san jose topping out at about 72 degrees going up towards the east bay, we could be seeing some 60s, hey ward, 69, out near livermore, also staying in the 70s and out near the peninsula, this is where we could be seeing a lot of is that cloud cover because we are tracking a storm system. half moon bay about 64 degrees, staying about 3 to 7 degrees cooler that what we've seen over the past couple days. tonight, we should be staying in those 50s as well mission 62 degrees out near san francisco, the north bay, this is where they're going to have that better chance to see some slight showers but right now, the model's not showing much. let's go and take a look at our hour by hour forecast. overall, the biggest impact at about 9:30 is going to be is that cloud cover. you can see it in the south bay, san jose, out near napa, san
7:18 am
francisco is really going to start seeing that cloud cover. fast forward to about 2:30 a.m., the majority of that storm system pushes off to the north so a lot of that rain that we were expecting out near napa and the north bay, it doesn't look like it's going to amount to much. it looks like we could be seeing the possibility of a few pop-up showers here and there. by sunday about 11:00. no rain really, things should be clearing out quite nicely. with this storm system, though, we do have a high surf advisory that has been extended until 7:00 a.m. tomorrow so if you have plans to be out there, we are expecting some pretty strong rip currents. you may want to head out, make t a later day. tomorrow it should be better unless you're a surfer. here's what everybody wants to know. at least for football fans, levi's stadium should be nice, clouds as early as 9:00, 10:00 a.m. should be overcast until about 11:00 a.m. that sunshine should be coming out and we should be warming up into the 70s. i know kickoff is at about 1:05
7:19 am
so we should be good. what about that raiders game? no rain in sight but we could be seeing that cloud cover temperatures are going to stay fairly nice, in the 60s, i want to say a light sweater is going to do for all of those fans us there. 66 degrees by about 2:00 p.m., and into the later part of the day, we're going to stay in the 60s, cooling down to the 50s by about 8:00. now, don't forget, though, we do have daylight saving time, so remember to turn your clocks back one hour, check your smoke alarms, which means we are going to have an earlier sunrise at about 6:42 a.m. now, over the next seven days, we are tracking the 60s and of course late showers into tonight, partly cloudy skies on sunday, about 64 degrees, as we head into the inland area, we're also tracking the possibility, very slight at this point, thanks to the model, showing about 64 degrees by sunday, we should be clearing out with those patchy clouds, monday and tuesday, we're going to steer clear of that rain and we're going to be welcoming a lot of

7:45 am
and near mission, 62 degrees, and for the north bay, this is where we were tracking the better chance of rain. it looks like that cold front is moving more along the north so we're not going to rule it out completely but it looks like those rain chances are less likely as we head into the overnight hours. napa in the 70s so let's go out and track that storm system, taking a look to the our weekend, hour by hour forecast. the majority of the day, we should be seeing partly cloudy skies with a few moments of sunshine. but by about 9:30 p.m., we're going to see some large cloud cover all down to san jose, palo alto, san mateo, san francisco, and also out near oakland, we're expecting to see sierra, very cloudy skies. looking ahead at 2:30, that cold front is expected to make its arrival as early as 10:00 is really going to push off to the north so not going to see much rain. now by about 7:30, 9:00 a.m. could still see a few pockets along the north bay but sunday, could be seeing more cloud cover than what you see for today.
7:46 am

7:47 am
we are going to be in daylight saving time. now here's a look at your seven day forecast. late showers. keep that in the forecast although the models aren't really showing much activity. as we head into sunday, pare pare, seeing those overcast skies into the middle of the week is when we're really going to start clearing out nicely, monday the start of your workweek inland is going to be warm temperatures, back into the 70s, before we see a slight rain chance make its return into the bay area by friday. but overall, this weekend, we're just talking cooler temperatures and partly cloudy skies. >> much more ahead on "today in the bay." coming up, we investigate san francisco's sinking tower and uncover why taxpayers could end up paying to fix the problem. the luxy ter isinkin--and aning-

the luxury tower is sinking and leaning. among the questions now, who pays to fix it. our investigative unit has uncovered documents that taxpayers might be on the hook. investigative reporter jackson van der beacon tells us that millennium developers blame the transit center next door for their sinking issues. >> reporter: frank lives with his husband, andrew, on the 50th floor of the sinking and tilting millennium tower. he says not much is being done to fix the problem. >> it doesn't help us at all to know why it happened. we want to know how it's going to be fixed and who's going to
7:51 am
pay for it and it certainly isn't going to be us. >> reporter: but learning why it is sinking may be the key to figuring out who pays to fix it. even before it was completed in 2009, san francisco's millennium tower had started sinking. it also had begun lifting. the tower has now sunk at least 16 inches and is leaning at least 2 inches at the base. but the public only learned of the problem earlier this year. nbc bay area's investigative unit has discovered this easement agreement from 2008. it put taxpayers in line to pay the bill for the sinking building if the trans-base center nearby contributes to its problems. other documents show that as far back as 2010, millennium developers had warned that the trans-bay authority's proposal to build an underground wall between the two projects could make the sinking problem worse. in a november 2010 letter, millennium expressed concern about the $58 million wall.
7:52 am
the letter suggests trans. >> bay's own consultant believed the wall could lead the tower to settle nonuniformly. millennium said that would be enough to cause damage. they wanted trans-bay to redesign the wall at the time. they acknowledge that nothing was done. in a statement to nbc bay area, transbay officials flatly deny their consultant predicted the wall could lead to uneven settlement. the agency won't talktous. instead, they reiterated that the millennium's issues are because its foundation is faulty and not tied to bedrock. geotechnical engineer and consultant agrees, saying the wall may have made things worse but the millennium's foundation is the root problem. >> the wall on the transit center has done a good job of stabilizing it, but they didn't -- nobody put a wall on the other side of the building.
7:53 am
so, that's why it's leaning. it's, to me, it's not a big mystery. >> reporter: back at the tower, andrew faulk believes millennium deserves most of the blame. he says the developers kept homeowners in the dark while insisting the building was perfectly safe in a quake. >> it's hard to believe how callus they were with human life when they designed and constructed this building. i mean, what were they thinking? >> reporter: carp believes the critical area was millennium's decision to use a foundation designed for a lighter steel building. but ultimately, millennium opted to build the tower out of heavier concrete. >> you could run a one-page calculation and figure out that this foundation was too spindly. >> reporter: jackson vaeshd, nbc bay area news. >> if you have a tip for our investigative unit, give us a call or send us an e-mail. uber and lyft are facing
