7:19 am
bay as soon as friday and look how it holds together even as it pushes down towards the south bay and omp never near tahoe. this could be a very strong system for us producing maybe 3/4 of an inch across parts of the north bay and maybe a 1/2 inch for some of our elevations across the santa cruz mountains. we'll be looking at the computer models to vary for the amounts because look what happens on saturday around 2:00. we could be pushing more than one inch and close to two inches in the north bay and one inch for san francisco. so a series of three systems could be impacting us next weekend. keep that in mind as you make plans to get outside because it may be kind of wet next weekend. 85 today in san jose. 86 in gilroy. 77 for san francisco, and even nice in santa cruz today, 78 degrees. you'll notice, michelle, over the next couple day it's temperatu temperatures kind of fall off. in san francisco we introduce the fog tomorrow. clouds picking up for thursday

7:34 am
after she was honored she got right back to work calling verts and surge urging them to vote for hillary clinton. she became a senator in 1993 after ten years in the how many times house of representatives. it's now up to a federal judge to decide who is right in that lawsuit against airbnb. the two sides went head to head in federal course on thursday but the judge still hasn't made a ruling. this lawsuit could affect everyone in san francisco. >> that includes people who don't use airbnb because at the heart of this issue is the housing crisis in san francisco. the supply is just too low and what is available is junction too expensive. airbnb believes its platform gives people a way to earn some extra money but city leaders think too many people are turning their short-term rentals into year-round illegal hotels which reduces the amount of
7:35 am
housing in san francisco. now, a judge will weigh in on the legal battle. >> instead of working with the city, what they did is they simply went ahead and sued. >> reporter: how would you describe how airbnb has handled the situation? >> very arrogant. >> reporter: san francisco supervisor david compos says airbnb should be forced to take responsibility for their thousands of users who continue to break the law by renting out their homes online without first registering with the city. >> that's why san francisco is not going to be intimidated by what is essentially a bully tactic on the part of this company. >> reporter: for over a year and a half anyone in san francisco wanting to rent out their home shorm term has been required to get a $50 permit from the city, but our investigation exposed how that registration process has largely been ignored. until may we revealed that at least 82% of hosts are breaking the law since they failed to
7:36 am
register with the city. >> folks have been robbing residents of that housing and airbnb has essentially been driving the getaway car. >> reporter: after our investigation campos and other members of the board of supervisors approved a new law that would allow the city to charge home sharing companies up to $1,000 per day if they allow unregistered users to continue to post their rentals online. airbnb fought back slapping the city with an 18-page lawsuit that accused san francisco of violating the company's first amendment rights of commercial speech. airbnb also argued it would be a significant burden to verify whether all of its users are registered with the city. the new penalties were supposed to take effect in july, but san francisco put that on hold after the lawsuit was filed. >> this is the first time we have ever taken a step like this. >> reporter: david owen heads policy strategy for airbnb and says the city's registration process for hosts is too
7:37 am
complicated but when users fail to register, san francisco wants companies, including airbnb, no get stuck with financial penalties. owen disagrees. why do you believe that's so unreasonable? >> it's really just not that simple. this is a new activity. it's a new economy. and the city can and should be able to develop a simpler, much more innovative process to enable folks to rent out their home for a few nights out of the year without going through a process that takes six, eight wekts. >> reporter: the city says registering only takes about half as long. if people get to ignore city laws they simply just don't like, sthant a recipe for disaster? >> i think it's unfair to say that. we have been at the table and spent significant amount of time identifying issues, working on solutions, and being part of a dialogue, and, in fact, are committed to continuing that process. the current rules simply don't work. >> reporter: our investigative
7:38 am
unit went undercover this past summer to show you how easy it is to find and rent out homes on airbnb that are not registered with the city. last year san francisco found that nearly 2,000 homes were taken often the market permanently in order to be advertised as short-term rentals on airbnb. if they're able to get parts of this ordinance thrown out, what do you think that could mean for san francisco? >> it's the very future of san francisco. at the crux of the housing crisis is this question of will san francisco continue to have a middle class? >> reporter: you think this one lawsuit could carry that large of an impact? >> absolutely. i think this can open the door for other industries, especially around the sharing economy, that would essentially allow other industries of other companies to say, we have no responsibility when it comes to the impact that our business has on society. >> reporter: it's unclear just when the judge will issue a decision in this case, but if you plan on recentinting out yo
7:39 am
home short term there's another big change on the way. that $50 registration fee for hosts will spoke to $250 in november. that's because san francisco just realized its enforcement program is costing more than it's bringing in. last year taxpayers had to shell out over $400,000 to keep things going. so san francisco is raising its prices. now, you can logon to our website right now and click the investigations tab to watch all of our reports in this series, including our hidden camera investigations. that's guys, back to you. >> well, if you have a tip for our investigative unit give us a call 888-996-tips or send us an e-mail to it's that time of year, flu season, and bay area health leaders are trying to make it easier for people to get their flu shots. kaiser permanente kicked off their flu clinic. people were clined up on the parkway. could you walk up or just drive

one-liners we often see. no doubt, we know it's coming, someone will ask trump to account for his lewd remarks about women in that now famous or infamous 2005 tape released friday. many observers believe that his behavior has just jeopardized his opportunity to win the presidency. maybe this is just one time too many. >> all eyes are on trump. he's offered an apology already, but what can he do, if anything, to help himself in this case? >> yeah. look, trump needs to provide responses that really match up with the questions instead of going off topic and saying whatever he wants to say. if he's asked about the tape, he needs to apologize sincerely and without any ambiguity or blame on clinton at this point. he hasn't done it. just hasn't so far. but in addition, he has to control his anger. he has to control his frustration. his body language is very important here. believe you me, people will be watching the way he acts as much as what he says. third, trump has to find a way
7:49 am
to present his vision. it's just not enough to berate clinton and all the, quote, disasters he associates with her. he's got to show in detail how he really will make america great again. >> and hillary clinton has responded on twitter only saying that she's disgusted by this tape. but what do you expect from her. how do you think she'll handle all this? >> you said it right, twitter-only. assume she's asked about the trump sex tape, she has to keep her remarks to a bare minimum. the tape speaks for itself, and she has other people speaking for her. she has to also avoid that robotic appearance that she's known for. answer the questioner as if they're having a person-to-person conversation that will make her feel more authentic. and finally as the front-runner, she has to avoid that gaffe. it sounds simple enough to do so, but believe you me, if she's too stiff, on the other hand,
7:50 am
that won't be good either. she has to be sincere but at the same time don't make that gaffe. can't do that. >> a couple weeks ago we were watching the first debate. we thought that was a big deal. now it seems this is even bigger than the first. how important is this debate? >> the stakes, michelle, are so much higher than they were 48 hours ago. that's for sure. clinton can absorb a loss here, she can, because she would have the opportunity to come back. for trump, it's really almost do or die. he has to do well to stay in the game. a repeat of 12 days ago could all but seal his fate, and given the downward trajectory of the last two weeks, he has to act and he has to act in a very, if i can use the word, presidential way. he really does. and remember something very important here. people are already voting. they're already voting in seven states. they will start voting in california soon. they'll be voting in 11 states at the end of the week. the bottom line is time is
7:51 am
running out. >> and he's still in the race. >> he's still in the race. >> many people are asking him to step down or move out of the way. >> the national polls show him three, four, five points, but, remember, it's not the national polls. it's all those battleground states and we're seeing those battleground states move decisively toward clinton, but tonight is his opportunity. >> should be fascinatinfascinat. thanks for joining us, larry. much more ahead on "today in the bay." and it's not the burglar they were expecting. it's not as hot for you and we have rain on the horizon. we're back with details, your weekend forecast, plus a look at the next seven days.

7:54 am
welcome back. 7:54 is the time on this sunday morning. want to start you off with our sky cam network. you can see from every location this morning we're waking up to sunshine, chilly in the north bay at 57. clear skies across the entire bay area all the way down into the south bay. look at hour high temperatures late they are afternoon. km comfortable for most of us. the tri-valley up to 86. even the south bay will reach 85. but san francisco comfortable at 77 and then this afternoon it gets a little breezy and we do have a beach hazard statement from the national weather service today. also for tomorrow for the coastal locations. if you're going to be headed to the beach, keep it in mind we will have rip currents moving along the coast line today and tomorrow along with sneaker waves and large shore breaks. keep that in mind if you're
7:55 am
headed to the beach for today and tomorrow. a quick update on hurricane matthew. still packing winds at the center of 75 miles an hour. they're seeing light to moderate rain from boston to new york, even washington, d.c. the good news, they're pretty much done with matthew. it will continue out over the open sea. this morning still dealing with heavy rain across parts of the atlantic coastline. here back west you can see we've got clear skies this morning as our sun is coming up. storm track well to our north, about you that is about to change as we head towards this upcoming week. we're tracking a series of storm systems that are going to move in for the weekend. here is wednesday. that system though, that's going to the north, but the system behind it for thursday night into friday, that's the one that's going to impact the bay area. first for the north bay, thursday night, and then it will move into the bay area for friday morning into friday night and even bringing more sierra snow with it as well. again, this will be the first of a series of storm systems that moves this way. so friday's rainfall decent but,
7:56 am
again, not going to be what we're -- not going to be done with the rain just then. but you'll notice maybe half an inch for some of the higher amounts even across parts of the north bay. round two comes in on saturday into sunday and that's where we could get more than an inch total with both systems for the north bay and three-quarters of an inch for san francisco and maybe, just maybe, more than half of an inch in the south bay. so something we'll be watching very interesting. this could be the most rain we've seen all season. of course, we haven't had that much, but this is a nice welcome sign if this comes through. enjoy today. it will be comfortable, a little warm but that last summer air looks like it's going to be felt this week but once we get into this weekend and next week the temperatures cool off even in san francisco. low 60s by next weekend. so nothing like we saw yesterday of 86 degrees in the city. a big change coming our way over the next seven days, michelle. >> i welcome the cooler temperatures. >> me too. you have to see this.
7:57 am
someone has been a very bad dog. he caused some major issues in sonoma county. sheriff deputies responded to reports of a prowler. they caught the culprit trying to escape from a skylight. apparently no arrests were made and he was punished with no treats for the rest of the day. >> bad dog. >> thank you for joining us and making us part of our morning. no 5:00 or 6:00 news tonight. instead it's sunday night football in america. a special edition of nbc bay area news and a reminder, the second presidential debate will be shown on cozi tv, comcast channel 18 186, because of sund night football. thanks so much for joining us, and have a wonderful sunday. >> see you.

this sunday morning, the trump tape. >> if you're a star, they let you do it. you can do anything. grab them by the -- >> republicans are abandoning trump, calling on him to step down. can he survive this? and what does survival even look like? i'll talk to one of trump's dwindling number of supporters rudy giuliani and house democratic leader nancy pelosi. plus trump says he'll never get out of the race and goes on offense. >> bill clinton has actually abused women and hillary has bullied, attacked, shamed, and intimidated his victims. >> but the question so many are asking, can the republicans avoid catastrophe. >> well, with all due respect, sir, you, sir, are the distraction.
