remain a combination of sun and clouds. don't necessarily have to worry too much about the rain. we're going to see isolated chance of showers but not necessarily for san jose. should be a dry morning overall. a good mix there. as we head into the afternoon only expect it to top out into the 50s. a perfect day for that silicon valley turkey trot. make sure to share those photos with us. we've had a quiet morning and as expected hopefully for those who had to head out yesterday, the night before, they made it safely. we intense rain. right now clear conditions. we have the green on the map which means we are good to go. so let's take a look at how the bridge drive times are doing. westbound 80 only seven minutes. i'm not expecting the metering lights to turn on anytime soon. a good day to travel. back to you. >> thank you, vianey. new overnight rising tensions across the pacific, north korea firing two unidentified projectiles into the sea,

6:11 am
there and look at my phone. i'm guilty of it. satellite radar right now, i want to get to this because i'm concerned about those waking up. it may seem like the heaviest impact is gone. yes, for us. look what you're going to have to deal with if you're driving down the grapevine. even though you're not seeing rain here, heavy pockets of rain. this is a live look at satellite and radar right into the grapevine. you know you pass through bakersfield, the fresno area as well and then right around santa clarita valley. check the road conditions. you do not want to get stuck out there. >> thank you. 6:11. parents, listen up. we are going to run down the hottest toys of this holiday season. i can't keep up. this according to cnbc. we'll have it next. >> thus of people for the turkey trot this morning. you can still go if you're deciding whether or not -- does

6:13 am
6:14 am
it is 6:14. it's time to wake up, runner errands, get the last-minute details sorted out. if you're getting ready to do the turkey trot, good for you. it's cold out there. 39 degrees right around the 7:00 a.m. hour. we stay in the 40s.
6:15 am
at least we won't have to worry about the rain. let me know how your turkey trot goes. now i also want to show you the roads. we do have a couple accidents. traffic in san jose along 101 and 87. aside from that i am happy to report we have no accidents in the interior valleys. some patchy fog. keep that speed at a safe distance for travel. about back to you. vianey, this is normally when we talk business and tech headlines, but the stock market will not be open today. it's thanksgiving. each of the three major indices, though, closed at a record on wednesday. apple shares up about 1 1/ 3 percent. >> all right. we're already talking about holiday shopping. >> i think we can start now. >> many of you will be out tomorrow. maybe even today thinking about your holiday shopping list.
6:16 am
>> so we have a list of toys. if you're totally stumped for what to get your kids there's a cnbc hottest holiday toy list. >> it's hot but it's actually cold. it's about frozen, the sequel to the hit movie, is certainly capturing the heart of disney fans. experts say when it comes to this ultimate castle play set your kids won't be able to let it go. get it? this might be a good choice, though, if money didn't bother you anyway. it will set you back nearly $200. next up, helping you channel your inner tony stark hasbro offering marvel's avengers end game power gauntlet. a good one for superhero fans. about $70. >> and finally good information if you like to fort. this couch is called the nugget. it can be configured into different forts. the shape of your wallet might
6:17 am
take a hit. it costs nearly $230. cnbc says it does tend to sell out. of course a cheaper option might be to just break out the sheets and shares, couch cushions. >> thousands of people, tens of thousands of people, flocking to downtown san jose to run for a good cause. >> and it's not too late to register for this morning's silicon valley turkey trot. bob redell is live at the starting line already to tell us all about it. bob, is it cold out there? >> reporter: it is cold out here. i guess if you want to get warm, one thing, obviously go for a run or stay home in front of the fire. i know the founder of the turkey trot will tell you to come out here. already over 22,000 people registered. going for 25,000 so you can help raise close to a million dollars. what would you say to people at home on the fence, on the couch, what would you say to motivate them?
6:18 am
>> we're still your best excuse for a third slice of pie later today. second, we build community. we'll have 22,000 plus people out here who are going to run and walk and more than half the folks walking who don't feel you have to be a runner and, third, we help local nonprofits help those in need. that's more than 900,000 additional meals. 300 homeless people served permanently off the street. kids and adults with chronic medical conditions served. that's what we're able to do coming together as community, helping families in need and doing it in a fun and healthy way. >> reporter: this is the 15th year. the past 14 years you've raised $8.7 million. the goal is to get about $900,000 to bring you close to $10 million. why do you do this? >> we do it because we know that especially at thanksgiving we're so blessed and there are a lot of people who are struggling in
6:19 am
this region. we want to do our part to help them while building a stronger community for all of us. >> reporter: good luck today in the race. the fun and excitement in the starting line starts around 7:30. there's a festival if you are going to come down here. that's where you'll pick up the race pact. 7:30 the elite racers will start. it's -- 9:30 is the -- 8:30 is the big one. you have all the people out here. you can still register until 9:30. come on out. you will definitely get warm. >> bob redell, you would get warm. >> i've run two turkey trots in my life. >> good for you, girl.
6:20 am
>> today is not the day. >> talking earlier this meme that i saw that said, this is a meme not me, my biggest fear is falling in love with somebody whose family wakes up on thanksgiving to run a turkey trot. you're raising money, you're not an avlade runner, maybe you can cheer from the sideline. i thought that was funny. you're going to be watching the parade, bundle up at home. whatever it is you have going on. it's just a little thing. a mexican tradition. beautiful view of downtown san jose. you can still see the clouds out there but notice no rain in sight. now don't let that fool you. we have plenty of instability i'll get to in a second. in santa rosa 32 degrees. san jose dipping down into the 30s which is why bob redelves
6:21 am
cold out there. you're going to want to take some layers you can shed throughout the day, only keeping it in the 40s throughout the first half of the day. satellite radar, instability, sure we have the worst of the storm that passed by but i'm concerned about those last-minute travelers because as you saw the past two days the driving conditions were absolutely awful. not just for the sierra but also the grapevine. i want to show you what the travel conditions are looking like now. if you're up getting ready to head down into southern california or bakersfield, any of those areas, look at this. heavy pockets of rain and where you see this pink and white mix is a wintry mix which means that could bring the potential for some frost advisories which are in effect for some of those areas but also some black ice forming over the roads on the grapevine and if you've ever traveled along the grapevine they will shut that road down the minute that there is any sort of frost advisory in place and black ice. check travel conditions.
6:22 am
this is my hometown right there where my parents live. pockets of rain rolling through in through oxnard, the l.a. area. your micro climate highs in the 40s and the 50s. spotty temps in the afternoon but it's this rain, wind and sierra snow event moving in sunday into monday that will bring another round of really hectic weather to the bay area. look at how impressive the snowfall totals are for the sierra, 22 in tahoe. 48 for king veil. the next seven days will be crucial. i'll have another update on how the weather is and traffic in just a bit. black friday hang-ups last year, we're talking about them this year to help you avoid the same headaches. i'm chris chmura, nbc bay area responds next. here, it all starts with a simple...

6:31 am
peek through and the temperatures, well, they're not very warm. 32 degrees right now in santa rosa. a couple frost advisories for the sheltered valleys and 38 degrees in napa. a look at san jose, the beautiful view i showed you, it's cold, 38 degrees. 36 in palo alto. 43 in san francisco. as you head out the door you're going to want to bundle up. as far as how we're going to be shaping up through the afternoon, a lot of folks are getting ready for the turkey trot, you'll need some players to shed if you're running this morning. it will still be cold around the time it starts at 8:30, 9:00. in the 40s and then we're only expected to warm up to the 50s. we still have a chance of seeing isolated showers through the afternoon. the rain hasn't moved out completely yet. a check of the roads and how the traffic maps are doing. no major accidents according to chp but i have noticed a little bit of slowing along 87. aside from that, though, look at all the green on the map. green is good for us.
6:32 am
speed sensors are in the clear. these areas of white and pink are patchy frost areas. a chilly day ahead. back to you. >> vianey, thank you. new this morning, the reward to find the person responsible for throwing objects, possibly shooting, at cars along 101. $4,000 is offered. chp says 42 incidents in the prunedale area since february. on sunday a van was hit, the rear driver's side window. nobody hurt. the search is on for a missing bay area grandmother believed to be with her two grandchildren. >> relatives say they spoke with 75-year-old sandra young on sunday. they say she suffers from a slight case of dementia. young has had custody of her 9 and 7-year-old grandchildren since they were babies. they were all last seen at young's dialysis appointment in

6:34 am
wildfire burning in california. recent rainfall is helping firefighters. the cave fire is 40% contained as of yesterday. it scorched more than 4,000 acres since it ignited monday afternoon in the mountains near santa barbara. firefighters recently lifted all evacuation orders so that does put everyone back in their homes just in time for thanksgiving. hundreds of volunteers across the bay area pitching in to make sure nobody goes hungry this thanksgiving. the one big feast we all know about, glide memorial church in san francisco. >> and that's where our thom jensen is as glide puts the final touches on its thanksgiving meal. hi there, thom. >> reporter: really filling up with those thanksgiving aromas. you can see finishing up the vegetables here this is ham for breakfast, with the breakfast they'll serve serving about 800
6:35 am
breakfasts they expect today with grits, scrambled eggs, ham. stuffing here for the thanksgiving meal. ready to serve thanksgiving. the big thing that really makes this go every year is all of the volunteer work. volunteers to do all sorts of different things. a woman by the name of marcia for the last couple of years has been making these centerpieces for the tables here. a different centerpiece for every table, thanksgiving, fourth of july, christmas. that's what really makes it go. the glide on the go program in the past year or so to get about 200 meals out to folks who can't come in to glide memorial to get that hot meal today. about 9,000 over the next four days through the holiday
6:36 am
weekend. what really makes this go is the volunteers, 500 volunteers today. among them serving breakfast will be mayor london breed, the police chief will be here. the fire chief. one of the supervisors, and in the main dining hall they expect it to start filling up at about 7:30 when they start feeding people breakfast. if you want to get involved like miss bangkok did and others today go to if you just want to donate you can go to and you can pitch in, too. live in san francisco, thom jensen, "today in the bay." >> you mentioned about 30 minutes ago that they serve people 364 days a year and not just today. thanks, tom. a livermore police officer, you have to see this, recently had to deal with a rather foul
6:37 am
situation. the department tweeted out this of a traffic stop where a turkey tried to get in on the action. the officer pulled the driver over for speeding on monday. he was headed back with the driver's information when the turkey intervened. >> he doesn't want to you get a ticket. ♪ bad birds, bad birds what you going to do ♪ >> the officer did not issue the driver a ticket. >> that is truly, truly a random happening. why didn't you get a ticket? because of a turkey. >> the angel guardian of turkeys. speaking of being pulled over and traffic stops, vianey is here with a look at our traffic for thanksgiving day. it's really good out there.
6:38 am
>> where did the turkey come from, where did the turkey go, did someone own the turkey? was it just chilling there. i have so many questions. >> maybe you can tweet and find out the livermore police and find out what happened you. e you're right, speed sensors showing all good things. we do have slowing down to the south bay. my assumption is there are some areas right there where you're seeing the red in the downtown. street closures on market street and also first street, bridge drive times, eight minutes. >> a four-day weekend for many of the people watching. >> only one day of dry conditions. >> i was going to go to the alameda fair. >> sunday is going to be stormy. but for all of those who still
6:39 am
like black friday shopping, friday is your dry day. we're talking very gusty conditions for a lot of rain, temperatures in the 50s. it will be pouring. the reason we have a new storm developing. this low pressure system will drop down. heavy spread rainfall, good accumulations and look at sunday. the rain here locally, we are talking about some serious snowfall, the sierra, and this is already on top of what we saw the past few days. travel is not going to be a good idea. look at saturday. that new storm rolls in. and once that storm makes its way in overnight dangerous travel, gusty conditions 40 to 50-mile-per-hour winds. blizzard like conditions. three day totals now,
6:40 am
potentially snow. your best travel day isn't going to be until tuesday and the first is expected to be released between december 26th and january 5. if we're at a deficit, at a sir plus, right where we're supposed to be. this will contribute to that snow survey. we will be monitoring that very closely. i don't recommend it at all. you may just want to keep it at home and watch the snow. vianey was just talking about snow is still around and it is a problem in parts of california. next a check of conditions if you're still planning to hit the roads for thanksgiving. and out live to new york city. you'll see for yourself up next.
6:41 am

6:42 am
6:43 am
it is 6:43. if you're up getting ready for
6:44 am
the turkey trot you go girl, or guy, you just go. go well prepared because it's cold out there. 7:00 a.m., only topping out in the 40s. i would consider it good jogging weather. if you're going to be a standby and cheering on like our own bob redell, you'll need a coat. we do have more rain on the way. hopefully your thanksgiving travel is over for now. if you are planning on driving north to oregon, be prepared. chains are required at the border on interstate 5. look at all this snow. this is from last night. it closed the highway. as you can imagine creating major backups. >> imagine the grapevine the same. new york city ready for the spirit of thanksgiving. >> the macy's thanksgiving day parade kicks off its 93rd year. the iconic radio city rockettes practicing ahead of the big
6:45 am
show. it is all systems go for them. we also found out it is all systems go on the balloons. the macy's famed parade balloons will once again soar down manhattan's sixth avenue. >> jay gray live along the parade route and, jay, we're going to see the balloons coming in behind you here. >> reporter: there was a lot of concern because of the winds but the balloons are going to fly. not as high as they normally do. keeping it lower to the ground for safety reasons but they are in the mix. in fact, take a look now and you can see diary of a wimpy kid balloon. that will join the parade along with all of the bands from around the country, the more than 2 dozen floats that are a part of this parade and then you've got all the entertainment groups, the baton twirlers, the flag corps, the entertainers here headlined by celine dion. it should be a fantastic start
6:46 am
to your thanksgiving morning. more than 3.5 million people lining the parade route. some camping out overnight to get the best spot. should be a lot of fun. i hope you get a chance to watch the show. >> totally will. behind you there, jay, are two people dressed as pencils. and you know their parents are watching for them. that is my daughter right there. the pencil. thank you. i appreciate that. >> reporter: number two pencil. >> number one in my heart. look at her. now she's dancing and everything. everybody watch for the pencil in the parade. >> jay, thank you for bringing us that report. jay always brings such joy. >> to you as well. >> and your photographer who zoomed in on the pencil. >> johnny-on-the-spot, yes.

6:48 am
