he has something valuable that is a bid in las vegas. he doesn't have that here. until he has that and i think john madden said it, yeah, they want to stay here. the tough part now, time is running out. >> reporter: it's not a matter of months. it's a matter of days. oakland will try to fast track lott's proposal in a closed-door session on tuesday. meanwhile, the glistening stadium deal in las vegas has already been approved and casino mogul shelden atleson pledged $650 million. >> i want to make sure we have more than him. >> do you have more than him? >> i think we have more than him. >> reporter: lott reached out to several prominent money men and is consulting with the point man of the levi's stadium deal for the 49ers. >> do you think your biggest challenge is allow mark davis to allow your group to have partial
ownership here. >> i will never play for ownership. the reason why. >> not controlling ownership, just partial. >> not even partial. this is one of those things in life where get it done. do the work. wear your hard hat and get it done. >> among the concerns here the future of the a's. lott says the city has options on the table for the a's. bottom line we will know more after tuesday's city council meeting. it's a peninsula holiday favorite. the festival of lights parade is a decades old tradition. it's been celebrating the holidays since '77. >> pretty cool, especially for the kids. look at the colorful displays. the parade led by the festival of lights. queen and princesses. high school bands marched with floats along the parade route.
pretty chilly. a lot of people in coats and sweater and many hats but still hundreds lined the streets there. i was one of them. it was a beautiful sight to see. very cold. a lot of people bundled up, kind of for the first time. >> at least things were not damp at the parade route. right now light rain in to san francisco. it's the sneak preview to what you can expect for tomorrow's commute as we take you outside right now. as we look at christmas in the park, san jose a different picture from last night at the same time. a lot of rain in san jose. eventually few showers in to san jose. relatively dry right now. little light rain near the trivalley in to san francisco right now. you can see a few showers there with, again, temperatures chilly. 40s with rain overnight tonight. as you can see on the radar view, some light rain from san rafeal to castro valley. san jose not in the rain yet. what's interesting is the system
is moving north so south. usually from west to east but when they drop from the north they tend to be chillier an maybe they don't carry as much moisture or rain. but thanks to the cold air, it means more snow, maybe down to 4500 feet toward the sierra. we will look at the sierra storm totals in the next half hour. round three, bringing in a tenth of an inch of rain. not a lot but enough to wet the roadway. so for tomorrow's commute, the first half of the commute, around the south bay, 6:00 a.m., you can see how the clouds are hung up here. clearing in the north bay by the morning. by launch few clouds and sprinkles south of san jose. in the afternoon we will see drying winds picking up. clear skies setting the stage for a chilly night ahead. that's one of the trends we will see playing out over the seven-day forecast. once the clouds lift and clear for the afternoon, south bay temperatures close to 60 in san jose, low 60s around the trivalley.
upper 50s toward vallejo. a few early-morning hours. peninsula temperatures even in this sunshine state, cooler an upper 50s. turning breezy for the afternoon and then north bay, sunshine here first by mid-morning and highs approaching close to 60 in santa rosa. it is unusual about the seven-day forecast is we move to the start of december is how dry it is. wednesday we have this weak system passing by. after that, no chances of any rain. an unusually dry forecast. patchy frost could be possible. the next best chance of rain, at this point, looks like it will hold off until december 5th. light rain tomorrow morning should be out of here by mid-morning tomorrow. a few showers and we will emphasize a few for the north bay. we think on wednesday. after that that is a dry looking seven-day forecast. patchy frost and chilly temperatures outside tonight. that's the trend in to next weekend. >> dry until the 5th pretty much. >> looks that way after tonight.
same with my banking. with my bank of america mobile banking app, i can see my accounts all in one place. i can easily manage them and if something doesn't look right, i'm going to know. plus, i can set up alerts to help detect unusual activity. so i feel secure. in other words, no surprises. morning. hey, abby. like i said. the mayor.
somber day in san francisco's history. today is the 38th anniversary of the deaths of supervisor and gay rights activists harvey milk and george moscone. former supervisor dan white was arrested and convicted for their murders. zeroing in on drunk driving. tonight chp officers are wrapping up their thanksgiving weekend crackdown. they sent out extra officers to keep an eye out for drivers
under the influence. in the first six hours alone, troopers made 179 drunk driving arrests. the extra enforcement ends at midnight. that does not mean troopers won't still be on the lookout for driving under the influence. an all too familiar situation at san jose state. the university fired the football coach. ron caragher is out. he did not have a winning season in the four years and finishes his time at the school with a 19 win, 30 loss record. they finished the season with a 4-8 record. still to come, we track overnight rain. rob will be joining us next. >> and also looking at the morning commute, especially if it is raining. >> can a cancer diagnosis make you look better? we introduce you to a young woman living with stage four. she says while she hates her disease it has given her something back.
welcome back. we are tracking rain moving in to the bay area tonight. >> it's been a pretty rainy weekend. and so far tomorrow's commute could be no different. this is the third system in the past two days. rob has been up speed looking at the models. what's it going to be like in the morning? >> light rain moving back to the bay area. the system is moving quickly, overlapping each other as they move through the bay area. from the storms we have had half an inch from richmond, san francisco and oakland. san jose a nice change. some south bay locations picking up more rain. in in the sierra two feet of snow and counting at sierra, tahoe. we will be adding to those numbers. eight inches are possible. as you can see on the radar
tonight, we have light rain showers moving through, dropping in from the north. that's the trend that should last through most of the morning commute in the south bay. cool start, too. temperatures in the upper 40s. we'll let you know how much rain to expect and other changes ahead in the seven-day forecast in a few minutes. for up-to-date conditions, head to our website, nbc bay area.com. that's where you will find our sky cameras, live traffic cameras for your neighborhood. preparations are underway in havana as cubans prepare for two days of tributes to fidel castro. the late dictator died on friday at the age of 90 stefan holt is in havana where feelings are mixed. >> life in havana goes on somewhat as normal. many reluctant to go on camera to express their feelings but those who shared their thoughts shared sadness. one elderly man told me the
father of the revolution is dead. >> reporter: in this neighborhood in havana member m are remembering the man. >> ever since i was a kid i have been hearing about fidel, listened about fidel. i carry him in my heart the same as the cuban people. >> we already knew that he was sick because one of his last speeches he admitted probably one of his last. >> reporter: still restaurants are busy, but nightclubs are closed. bars are not selling alcohol. the atmosphere sober. even during the day, driving around the capital in a '51 pontiac. many cubans feel sincere loss. >> the cuban people love fidel. fidel. we always love fidel. >> there are those reflecting on, the ladies in white marched
in protest every sunday for the last 13 years. today they called it off out of respect and fear. >> we found one person happy that castro is gone. >> happy because i never good with him. i'm always against him. i'm not republican. i'm independent. >> havana ending the second day of mourning. a city known for its arts, culture and night life somewhat subdued out of respect for fidel castro. tomorrow, his ashes will make their their way to where many will gather and pay their respects. still no no sign of two prisoners who escaped from jail. the search continues for the two after they broke out of jail wednesday night. authorities say the men sawed
through bars across a second-floor window to get out. the sheriff said the men are still believed to be in the bay area based on numerous sightings. a $20,000 reward is offered for information leading to their capture. two highway patrol deputies are recovering after a truck plowed in to their patrol car. it happened in san jose on southbound 680 near capital expressway. officers say they were investigating an abandoned car and had just gotten back in the cruiser when a pickup lost control and slammed in to them. the deputies were taken to the hospital for minor injuries and are expected to be okay. investigators say the wet roadway likely played a role in the pickup losing control. tense morning at the medical center in san jose. the hospital was lockdown around 6:00 this morning after a patient reported seeing someone with a gun. officers searched the hospital for two hours. nothing was found. the lockdown was lifted and police say they later learned
the patient who reported all of this had been hallucinating over the past week. cancer diagnosis is devastating news. one bay area woman refuses to let it devastate her life. before she got sick she was a busy silicon valley ceo working an the clock. now she said she is living with stage four cancer and in some ways it's made her life better. >> why did it get it? that's the toughest part. >> reporter: for years the ceo and president of the silicon valley forum worked nonstop, creating and supporting all kinds of technology. >> being a person that's always worked so hard, had such a career, and really never taken time. >> reporter: in 2015, she was busy trying to get pregnant with her new husband when a fertility screening revealed cancer. stage four cancer. she was 37 years old. >> so when you get stage four cancer diagnosis, you don't know
how many years you have. >> reporter: not long after, this life-long energetic workaholic stopped and strangely said a new chapter of her life began. >> irony in itself is that i'm actually living my life more now. >> reporter: it is pom almost impossible of thinking a cancer diagnose would make someone's life better but this cancer specialist said it can and does. >> it forces you to trivialize the trivial and value what matters in life. >> reporter: >> one of my parents said my life has never been the same since i got cancer but in many ways it is better. >> reporter: once a month she takes a trip all over the globe with people she loves. >> it is wonderful that she is telling a positive story. >> reporter: her oncologist says she is one of the patients using cancer to her advantage. >> it almost always changeser
that outlook in terms of how they relate to their job, their families. >> reporter: barney said don't get her wrong. she is very mad at her disease. >> i'm really pissed off with cancer for doing that. >> reporter: but it has given her something back. >> what's the worst thing that can happen in life? that you die or someone near you dies. that's the worst thing that can happen. while you are alive, why be dead? right? >> reporter: dr. spiegel says this is the unwelcome gift that some cancer patients accept. >> cancer cures neuro sis. you realize some of the thing you have been wasting your time worrying about aren't worth it. >> i'm trying to live life to the fullest. >> i love that. cancer cures neuro sis. it puts things in perspective. she said she would rather not have cancer but the right response to such a diagnosis can make all the difference. still to come, the fight
against isis goes on-line. google gives us an inside look on how they are working to take down terrorists. but first a look at what is coming up in sports. coming up in sports an exciting sunday full of action in week 12 of the nfl. and a freak injury for derek carr. did it almost cost oakland the win? you do not want to miss the highlights. i pinky promise.
so why would the match up against the panthers is the game that oakland had been avoiding all season. the raiders led carolina by 17 at the half. in the third quarter, derek carr is going to fumble this snap. recovered by carolina. and carr dislocates his right pinky in the process. he heads to the locker room. carolina took a one-point lead in the third quarter. hek, ya, carr is definitely coming back if this one. in this fourth quarter with the panthers up. carr finds wofford for the touchdown. raiders have to go for two. carr is going to convert. the game is tied at 32. superman wearing silver and black in this one. sebastian has a 23 yard go ahead field goal and raiders improve to 9-2 with the win. what do you think about that jack del rio?
>> things were unraveling a bit at the end. the third quarter, you know, three, four possessions by them in a row. we weren't moving it. i actually tried to make sure and say, let's just remember, we keep fighting and we keep believing and go from there and whatever happens we can deal with, but i thought we snapped out of that and got our energy back and continued to fight. and then found a way. >> reporter: 49ers faithful believing but hasn't worked out as well. final drive with the 49ers down by seven. jeremy curly watches this incredible catch on the sideline. originally called incomplete but look at the toe tap. body awareness outstanding. with two seconds to go, 49ers on the sixth yard line. four receivers to the end zone
but kaepernick runs it and he is stopped two yards short of the goal line. the 49ers lootse a tenth straig with a loss to miami. >> they are all competitors. i don't know what they'd gain from packing it in. make them feel better? they want to straighten this out so they will compete and we have a bunch of competitors that want to win. they don't want anyone to pat them on the back and say good job, you were close. they are grown men and want to win and they will continue to -- they practice all year long. they have great attitudes. i don't think that is anyone's mind set. there's never a question from the inside. checking in on jarrod looking for a win against the rams. he threw his first career touchdown. austin caught that one. goff's career start. he had three touchdowns on the
silicon valley tech giant google is on the front lines. ronan farrell has a look at how they are responding. >> reporter: this may not look like the latest front in the fight against terrorism, but here at google researchers believe they could be on to a new way to confront isis. >> the islamic state has inherited a new era in on-line extremism. >> reporter: yasmine green is the head of research and development at jigsaw, google's incubator for geo political problems. the latest challenge, reaching bedroom radicals. people drawn in to extremism on-line. like 30,000 foreigners that joined isis around the world. >> we believe there's an opportunity to use the internet to get to those recruits before isis. >> reporter: they call it redirect. >> we will have the experience of searching for something like a pair of sneakers and then finding an ad for those sneakers pop up later. we used that same principle
instead to find potential consumers of isis' messages on-line. >> if i'm a young person out there somewhere, maybe sympathetic to joining isis, what's the process i go through? >> so you would likely search, for example, for a term, let's say martyrdom for allah. we would show you an ad linked to your search. you would be taken to a video like this. >> videos of imams and religious scholars preaching against isis, not supporting it. >> anything is worth trying, isn't it, at least make it harder, make it harder for them to steal our children. >> reporter: sally evan's son thomas grew up in a london suburb. >> he was a normal little boy. he was on his computer upstairs. >> like many he drifted away from family and friends, eventually joining the terrorist group al shabaab. he was killed in this terrorist
attack. the group used video of his death as propaganda. >> no mother should have to see that. that was awful. it's tearing final moment. as a mom there was nothing i could do. >> reporter: this man also fell in to radicalism on-line. >> people need to know that anyone can become radicalized. >> reporter: he was considering a bomb attack in london but pulled back. >> what led me away from radicalism is listening to more relatively moderate scholars and imams. >> reporter: he was not a part of redirect but thinks it could discourage others. in an eight week pilot program it reached 300,000 people who watched a half million minutes of video all aimed at undermining isis. nbc news, london. >> back here at home chilly temperatures mean we are welcoming a lot of folks in to
shelters in the south bay as temperatures drop. starting tomorrow, santa clara county will open the cold weather shelters from sunnyvale to gilroy. various locations will be open. the shelters will open as early as 3:30 tomorrow afternoon. rob has been talking about rain is going away but the cold is not. perfect timing for the shelters to open. >> the storms have been dropping snow to 4,000 feet. patchy frost could be possible later this week. let's talk about the rain totals so far this season. almost through the first quarter of our rainfall season and the numbers from itty good. 115 to 188% of average. well ahead of last year and there you saw the seasonal averages on the right. we are adding to that a bit right now in san francisco. you can see the rain drops lit up by the city lights over san francisco. you can see that in marin county, berkeley, richmond, in to the east bay, trivalley seeing a few showers. now a line from sunnyvale
approaching san jose. nothing too heavy on this and we are not expecting much in terms of yellow or orange on the radar. unlike the downpours we had at times this weekend, this system is relatively lighter. this bebigger impact is this sierra where they could get eight inches. you can see most areas, maybe except morgan hill less than a tenth of an inch of rain. the issue is the timing. we are seeing light rain now. we think it will linger to the morning commute. 6:00 a.m. tomorrow. you notice how the south bay seeing showers and vench around lunchtime we may see sprinkles in los gatos and campbell. as the skies clear and the wind sheltered valleys, upper 30s possible over the next couple of nights. both early in the week and second half of the week as things trend dryer in the seven-day forecast. the highs tomorrow once the clouds clear, upper 50s to close to 60. around the peninsula,
temperatures in the upper 50s with light rain showers for the morning. san francisco trending breezy for the afternoon. clearing skies. highs in the upper 50s and low 60s. north winds picking up at times from santa rosa in to sonoma and clearing as early as mid morning in the north bay. the changes in the next few days, high pressure weakening. one more system coming in on wednesday. falling apart as it crosses the finish line. maybe a few showers. after that all the way through next weekend things are looking dry as the high builds in. could be breezy through friday and next weekend doesn't look like much of anything in the way of rain. the seven-day forecast trending much drier than we typically see this time of the year. light rain tomorrow morning. a few showers possible on wednesday, but look at the bottom of the screen, overnight temperatures in the 30s for half of the next seven days. with clear skies and light winds could have patchy frost this week. >> it is chilly.
it's that time of year again. looking like christmas in downtown san jose. christmas in the park is up and running at the caesar chavez park. the rides, decorations and 70 christmas exhibits are all in swing. it's part of the whole experience there. 500,000 people visit christmas in the park every year. some people tell me the decorations, a couple of them are the same they were when they were kids. >> it's -- you look forward to seeing those and they have new ones there. >> new ones, too. >> some nights is packed down there. >> very pretty. >> it's fun. shoppers are hitting stores across the bay area in a mad hunt for gifts some may hold dreams of gucci under the tree
like peggy bunker. >> what? >> a bay area artist whose gucci dreams came true in an unusual way. >> for years artists toil away hoping for the one big break. but she took the scenic route. >> i studied biology my first few years in college. >> she was inspired by nature and fashion. >> i love natural forms and animals. >> even dead ones. >> it was six years ago she started to draw professionally with some inspiration from her husband, artist jeremy fish. he is so passionate about his work. >> who also likes fashion. >> reporter: not long ago jade
started to draw tarot cards. the creative director if the italian fashion line gucci apparently looks at instagram. >> he happened to see and contacted me. he was curious if i would be open to gucci acquiring them. >> reporter: gucci bought fish's drawings. this fall the couple got invited to italy for the fall fashion show. though she wasn't sure why. >> not really. >> no idea. >> i was excited, nervous and mostly making sure she didn't explode. >> it was a smoke-filled room, dim red lighting. >> one by one they start coming down. >> that's when the couple saw it. >> like oh, my god. >> clothes go down that had my illustrations printed on them. oh, wow, a tiny owl, oh, they made a patch out of that. >> i was in awe. >> the same gucci that inspired fish was inspired by her art. >> an opportunity this amazing
by using a hashtag of a dude's name. it seems impossible but it actually happened. >> reporter: jade fish has been written up in "vogue" and "elle." >> like some magical thing happened to me. >> maybe the shortest distance between two points is fine art and a social media account. >> nbc bay area news. >> nice. >> i think i saw what we will get you. i won't tell you which. >> she have open her first solo art show in san francisco. >> i liked the dress with the owl. >> funny you said that. that wasn't it. still ahead, an unusual addition for one russian family. we will show you this wild scene inside of their home. that's right. that's a deer in the house.
