pretty decent rainfall totals of as of today. thanks for waking up with us each and every day. the good news is the showers are going to hold off until after your morning drive for most of the bay area. expecting most of that activity to stay north of the golden gate bridge. unless it's a good looking fom so looking good for that. as we out ou and more rain

care workers and employees here at texas health presbyterian. nina pham is at the washington institutes of health and is stable. vincent's family is pushing back about her taking that flight, saying she was cleared by the cdc and the hospital to make that trip and that she checked in with hospital officials while she was traveling. today the county's top administrator here in dallas said that amber vincent did nothing wrong. >> that was a mistake, and that caused her problems, it caused panic in our community, it caused people to miss school, it caused a lot of overreaction. it was a mistake and we
apologize. >> over the weekend the hospital took out a full-page ad in the dallas morning newspaper apologizing for mistakes that were made during what the hospital called a difficult challenge. the dallas county administrator says a quick response team is now being formed to respond to any future ebola cases and to give this hospital a breather, they are saying that any future cases that show up in this part of the world will be moved to other hospitals. but again, in the case of amber vincent, the hospital, the county administrator, the cdc, they're taking the responsibility for giving her the go-ahead to make that trip from dallas to cleveland to work up some of her wedding plans, and that's what has created kind of a furor here in dallas and around the country because she was allowed to go. >> no question about that, mark, reporting live from dallas. the cdc of course reassessing its protocols now.
out of an abundance of caution, school officials say a group that was on board a cruise ship along with a dallas worker who had handled fluids. thomas duncan, who mark had just mentioned. the district hopes to get the all clear by tomorrow afternoon. >> the and the "today" show will continue coverage. you can go to nbc bay area.com for updates. >> and we're tracking the possibility for rain on the way as we give you a live look at downtown san francisco, the transamerica building. there could be rain in the offing on the agenda there in san francisco. when are you expecting rainfall to come? >> it's actually here in the south bay. we'll have to wait on those showers. the good news this morning is you don't have to drive through the rain as you make your way to work on a monday morning. and monday morning in and of
itself can be a difficult thing. so that's the good news. as you make your way home from work, more good news. a lot of that shower activity will have already subsided. so while you're at the office today, that's where you're expecting a bulk of the moisture to come through. hard to tell that we've got this storm just to the north. expecting a lot of this activity to start to press into sonoma county as we head into 8:00, 9:00 this morning. and then we'll have to wait on that rain here on the south bay until about 11:00, 12:00 today. but can you see here on your future cast, we're talking about some decent downpours, even right here in the south bay where we typically get hosed, as i like to say. temperatures are looking good, rainfall is looking good for maybe a quarter of an inch. i don't think we're going to see much of a rain shadow impact as this storm is keeping together,
nice and organized. feeling like fall out, there 68 on the peninsula, 64 in beautiful downtown san francisco and right around 70 degrees, wine country feeling good, looking pretty, especially after we clear those showers out by this evening, tomorrow, wednesday, fantastic air quality. really pretty days across the bay area. then we bring that rain back. as we get into your thursday and friday, this system is looking like a whopper and it could impact our world series right here at home. right now we have to check on that traffic alert. it's a monday. the last thing we want is an unexpected slowdown. good thing we have mike inouye on the job. >> it's going to be slow. this is west 580 coming through dublin. here's the reason why things are a little bit different at the dublin interchange. 680, traffic is held up from that interchange just before you
get there because south 680 we have all this traffic backing up, coming out of danville, walnut creek. those folks are jammed up here because of the crash blocking four lanes. you can take san ramone road but that's crowded as well. you can use doherty, it will take you through the city of dublin where you can get down toward 680. but that's likely your path if you're inclined to take that anyway through the year. you're jammed up here because of a car blocked by an earlier crash. there was a bus involved in the crashing and a motorcycle involved as well. any time there's someone standing on the side of the road, which it sounds like there is, it's also an added distraction. you have your typical pattern heading toward that maze.
we're expecting maybe 7:30, possibly 8:00 where they'll clear all those lanes. the rest of your bay, though, on the east bay, a typical pattern, your northbound rates starting to kick in. no incidents reported. this is just that morning rush as everyone travels from hayward. the toll plaza, you have the build -- you expect this out of the maze, we showed it here, but a smooth drive across that span. >> we just received new information from san jose police and chp who are currently looking for 71-year-old nicholas ortiz. police save he walked away from his san jose home yesterday afternoon wearing a black shirt and blue jeans.
he was last seen on pearl avenue and he might be wearing a hospital wrist band. he suffers from a medical condition and could be disoriented this morning. if you have any information, please contact the san jose police. >> one san jose neighborhood is forced to pay hundreds of dollars in repairs after they were hit by vandals. >> damien, you were out there recently covering a similar story but this is not deja vu. >> reporter: it's been a couple of months that this has been happening here in downtown willow glen. this is some of the damage they have been causing here. the willow glen window smasher strikes again and the merchants are getting increasingly frustrated here in willow glen. the owner of the moda salon is the latest victim. now over the last two months, the willow glen window smasher, as honey targeting several businesses.
the local starbucks and bass kins robbins does not -- it happens to become a majorfor th in willow glen. more merchants are talking about store front surveillance cameras here so they can see who exactly is causing this damage in downtown willow glen. police so far have not made any arrests. >> an expensive experience for those business owners. thank you, damien. >> good news to start off your monday morning as we look live at the bay bridge. those heading into san francisco shouldn't have to deal with the same gridlock that kept drivers on the bay bridge for more than
an hour on friday. the backup was because of those steel plates, they caused so much backup, they actually made caltrans delay their project. >> reporter: that's right. it's temporary relief but it's welcomed by the drivers heading into the city. the impact want felt until friday morning the black steel plates went across the left three lanes before the fremont street exit. it's part of a praj to replace six expansion joints. the steel plates allowed them to wogt without shutting do-- allod them to travel the bridge
without shutting down the bridge. >> reporter: and they did taper the steel plates to ease the travel of the vehicles. caltrans is now suspending the project and will have to figure out a new plan and they are set to do that at a meeting today. live in the bay, stephanie chuang, "today in the bay." >> apple pay is going live at about 200,000 businesses around the country. it uses the company's latest iphones, the 6 and 6-plus to let people make credit and debit payments. they say it's a secure and private way to buy things. a user's financial information is not exchanged. the cupertino company hopes that it will be so easy and convenient, people will be able to leave their cash and credit cards at home. >> we'll have one final check of your day's top stories to get
you started. ibm paying $1.5 billion to shed its costly chip division by handing over control of the semiconductor operations, it allows them to grow faster. ibm took a $4.7 billion charge when it reported earnings earlier this month. >> and lawmakers will begin hearings on the 6.0 earthquake that struck napa back in august. they'll listen to testimony to city and county representatives throughout the region. they want to see if improvements can bestatewide response system. >> and you can register online at register to vote.ca.gov. >> we're a little jealous of stephanie. we saw her in front of the bay
bridge. >> she looks fantastic as well. remember i was talking about magic hour? the rain will mess up your hair later today, ladies, unfortunately. any minute expecting that shower activity. and temperatures, my friends, are going to be on the cool side. so bring that coat, bring that umbrella. we'll track that activity for you all through lunchtime today. >> sometimes these wearing a hoodie or a cap and everybody is jealous. >> not jealous in some spots. chr kris is metering for everybody. 880 standard as well. the dublin interchange, that's going to be lighter for west 580 and 680 but coming into the
area, unusual, danville, alamo, a crash blocking four lanes possibly until 8:00. a couple overturned vehicles. that's a big jam. you can use san ramone to get past part of that access. west 92 looking smoother than it was a couple of minutes ago. it's starting to get heavier on the peninsula. you have a lot of company on the palo alto as well. we're starting to see that build all over the place. >> well, check your tickets. a very lucky south bay shopper is holding a fantasy 5 ticket worth more than $200,000. >> that should get you a few world series tickets. >> the lottery says so far no one has come forward to claim his or her winnings. the lucky winning numbers are
