it's going to be slightly cooler but similar to what we saw yesterday. overall we are expecting sunshine across the board with the exception of a few clouds that should start rolling in at about 8:00 or 9:00. you should start seeing some of the heavier clouds and that's all thanks to a pacific storm system that's going to be making its arrival as early as sunday night into monday morning. i'll have more details on exactly what you can look forward to in your full forecast. >> and for knew we get some sunshine. >> for now we enjoy the sunshine. we want to tell you about a developing story in the east bay. s.w.a.t. teams are scouring the streets of oakland after multiple people were shot late last night. here is what we know right now. police were called to ritchie street and van kroft afternoon around 11:30 where they found three people suffering from gunshot wounds. they were taken to local hospitals but we still gont know their conditions. officers say an hour after arriving more gunshots rang out blocks away near the corner of 77th street. s.w.a.t. teams have been searching that area for several

well, the campaign trail took hillary clinton to pittsburgh where she rallied supporters and made an appeal to voters who are wavering in their support for donald trump, telling them she wants to be their president. >> probably no people who are thinking about voting for donald trump. i understand that they need a president who cares about them, will listen to them, and i want to be their president too. >> meanwhile, donald trump was in gettysburg, pennsylvania, running out his agenda for his first hyundais as president but his plan was overshadowed by his own comments about that growing list of women accusing him of sexual assault. >> every woman lied when they came forward to hurt my campaign. total fabrication. the events never happened, never. all of these liars will be sued after the election is over.
>> now, those comments came on the same day that an 11th accuser stepped forward. she claims donald trump hugged and kissed her without consent. jessica drake said it happened a decade ago after a golf tournament in lake tahoe. she claims he tried to offer her money and the use of his private plane in exchange for spending the night with him. >> asked me to return to his suite and have dinner with him. he also invited me to a party. i declined. donald then asked me, what do you want? how much? >> the trump campaign issued a statement denying all of drake's claims. meantime, it appears early voting is surging. as of this morning, more than 5.3 million votes have been cast, far ahead of the pace at this time in 2012. balloting is under way in 34

rainfall. the models are showing iffy totals right now. they're going to be affecting different parts of the area. it looks like the first system could be coming to the north bay as early as tonight, but right now partly cloudy skies, temperatures remain in the 50s south bay, peninsula. san francisco looking pretty nice out there. we are expecting to see mostly sunshine yet again as those temperatures climb back into those 70s for a second day in a row. yesterday we did hit our predicted high of 73 degrees, and today we should be topping out at about 72, 73. san francisco, half moon bay, not a big difference as well. also in those lower 60s. but we are tracking that rainfall that we've been talking about, and we've got the pacific storm system that's going to bring in rain as early as monday morning for some commuters. now, sunday, right now we're not seeing a lot of activity. we are going to start seeing that cloud cover though as we head into the later part of the day, so when you go out to dinner, it's not going to be cold, but you are going to start seeing some more clouds out there. it's going to be cooling. we are expecting to see north
bay is the majority of the rainfall. it will stay up there in the north bay through monday morning, but those rain chances z stick around through tuesday. today, san jose, 73 degrees we'll stop out again. mission at 69. overall, north bay similar conditions as well. we'll remain in the 60s. watt nu walnut creek, 71. i want to look at future cast. now, if you leave early for work tomorrow and you live or work up in the north bay area, you could start seeing some rain as early as 7:00 a.m. fast forward to about 6:30, and the models right now are showing it moving south through the region. now, we weren't expecting to see the majority of the rainfall until tuesday before a second system does come in. by thursday future cast showing wednesday it clears out. but by thursday we see the second storm system that should be tracking rain more south, which means widespread all across the bay area.
in terms of those rain totals, it's showing a majority of this rain, this is by thursday, this is that second system, that's showing north bay all through the south bay really getting hit with that heavy rainfall. but our estimated rain totals, well, they're going back and forth. those models keep switching. we are expecting to see about a half inch in san francisco through monday and tuesday. now, this is, of course, not including that second storm system that's supposed to come into play on sunday. now, the north bay, that's where they're going to see the majority of that rainfall. probably up even to a foot of rain according to the models right now, but again that's iffy right now. that second system showing it widespread through the bay area by thursday and friday. that could even carry over rain into saturday. now, san jose not much rainfall as we head into tuesday. better chance for heavier rain as we head into thursday and friday's forecast. now, your microclimate weather, it's looking pretty different as we head into monday. like i said, those early morning
commuters in the north bay could be seeing a wet road out there, which means please be safe, please drive extra, extra careful on monday morning, especially with all those people heading back to work. 62 degrees. by tuesday partly cloudy skies and those rain chances stick around. wednesday that storm system should be moving out, but we could still be seeing that cloud cover. by thursday that second storm system comes in, and that's what could be spreading that rain further south with better rainfall chances as we head into friday. like i said, saturday there is a slight chance that some moisture could still linger in the area. now, inland sunday, 73 degrees. by monday though tomorrow we're going to say in the 70s, so today we're going to top out at 73. rain, we're tracking it through tuesday. wednesday also clearing out. thursday, partly cloudy skies will remain in the forecast for the majority of the week. if you didn't get a chance to enjoy the outdoors yesterday, make sure to head out today and really enjoy that sunshine because it's going to be a wet week ahead. i'll have more coming up in a

"today in the bay's" garvin thomas has their story in this morning's "bay area proud." >> reporter: brandon says his grandfather and some close friends have been helping him
steer through some tough times lately, but it was a small act from someone he barely knew that is making the biggest difference in his life right now. any student at san jose state university should expect to face some difficult classes along the way. what brandon bebe didn't expect though was having to make such a difficult decision before the school year even started. >> i had so little saved up, do i get a room to stay or do i pay tuition? >> reporter: this all goes back, brandon says, not death of his father earlier this year. brandon had to shift his attention and his finances to helping take care of his family. still, not going to college was not an option. he had promised his dad. >> his last minutes, i promised him, i'm going to get my degree. >> reporter: which explains why brandon began the semester staying not in a dorm but in the front seat of his 1992 honda
accord. >> i pulled up to a curb and locked the doors, rolled up the windows, pulled a blanket over me and slept. >> basically i'd like you to research -- >> reporter: in spice of his circumstances, brandon's journalism professor lisa fernandez, says he started the year strong but soon was missing classes and failing to turn in homework. >> i was wondering why someone like that wouldn't have turned in two or three assignments. >> reporter: lisa pulled brandon aside one day to check in, just to see how he was doing. it meant a lot to a young man feeling awfully alone. >> at that point that's when i realized, you know, i'm not invisible. there are people who care about me. there are people who notice my hard work, my dedication. >> reporter: which is why when the accord broke down and brandon had to drop out of school, he wrote a note to lisa explaining his situation and thanking her for her kindness. saddened and not knowing what to do next, lisa shared the note with her facebook friends.
>> in minutes people jumped in and said, oh, my god, what can we do to help? >> reporter: lisa's network not only donated money but connected brandon to services and aid he didn't know exist ed and so now thanks to a complete group of strangers, brandon is ready to reenroll next semester with a place to live and a promise kept. >> it means so much to me. those people are keeping my promise alive, you know. it's a true blessing. >> reporter: in the interest of full disclosure, we should say that lisa fernandez not only teaches at san jose state university, but she is also a digital editor with our website, nbc bay area.com. >> stay with us for much more aheads on "today in the bay." coming up, a hydrant turns into a geyser in santa clara. how police caught the driver who caused all that mess. plus, they work to make

denny's knows the holidays should be shared with friends and family. except denny's all-new holiday pancakes. you won't want to share those with anybody. denny's new fluffier, tastier, better pancakes now in holiday flavors. good morning, bay area. mostly clear skies and mild conditions for both san jose and the san francisco area. it is football sunday, so if you're going to be watching the game, well, you may want to head outdoors during halftime and enjoy the outdoors. right now 52 in san francisco. 53 in -- rather 53 in san jose, 52 in san francisco.
san jose 72 today. livermore 74. in terms of temperatures, not a big change. hour-by-hour forecast, i want to show that tracking of that pacific storm system that should be moving in as early as tonight. but more than likely by sunday at about 4:30, clouds are going to start rolling in from the north. fast forward to about 12:30, 1:30, of:00 a.6:00 a.m., that's we'll see the cloud cover. and the majority of the rain will stick to the north bay. the early morning commuters, make sure to take some extra time. leave a little bit early just in case. you never know. we're going to be cooling off. more clouds overnight. north bay, some rain. it's going to be pretty nice overall. san jose 73 degrees. cupertino, 74. san mateo in the 60s. near the north bay we'll remain in the lower -- or upper 60s,
lower 60s for the coast. so we're not going to see a lot of fog today. it's going to be mostly clear for the most part. pleasanton, 74 degrees, and looking ahead at our future cast, like i said, today we'll be mostly clear. not a lot of cloud cover. by monday at about 7:30 a.m., the north bay is going to start seeing some of that drizzle. heavier rain moving through the region, through the south. by monday at about 7:00, san francisco could start seeing some rain, and late into monday night into tuesday it's going to be widespread. now, widespread by thursday. right now the mod 'ems aels aref conflicting, but it's looking like our best chance to be widespread through it's entire bay area will come in on thursday with the arrival of that second storm system coming in from the pacific as well. now, estimated rain totals right now the models are also conflicting in terms of how much rain we're expected to get, but i can say this. the majority of that rainfall as we head into monday and tuesday is going to stick in the north
bay. so we could be seeing about a half inch, maybe a foot by friday with the arrival of that second storm system. now, in the san francisco area, they could be seeing about half an inch by tuesday night. maybe barely a quarter of an inch in the south bay by tuesday night. we could see an increase though with the arrival of that second storm system, so we are going to have not one chance for rain, but two chances for rain as we head into the workweek ahead. overall the next seven days, those temperatures will stay in the 60s. cooler temperatures as we head into month. you might want to grab your umbrella, maybe send the kids off with a jacket, especially if you live out near san francisco, the north bay area. south bay not going to see as much rainfall as we head into wednesday. we should be clearing out quite n'icel nicely. but by wednesday night the second storm system comes in. if the south bay doesn't get much rain on tuesday, it will have a better chance of getting more rain as we head into thursday night. by friday that rain should be
sticking around. saturday looks like those clouds could still be lingering. maybe a slight chance of a few clouds and, of course, some rain, but, overall better chance monday morning for the north bay. >> that's a lot of rain clouds on the calendar. >> a lot of rain clouds. we want to tell you now about a survivor story that has to do with these two cute kittens that were apparently in the wrong place at the wrong time but we're happy to say they're now safe thanks to a brave photographer. took a look at pyro and manny. they barely survived after being trapped by a controlled burn in north dakota. they were living inside a brush pile that was set on fire. carlos was taking photos of that fire when he heard the cats m meowing for help. he used a stick to pull them out. they have some burnt paws. that's why they're wearing those cute booties. carlos is thinking of adopting them now.
