booster shot. >> yeah, especially since this announcement friday from the cdc, marcus. good morning. with 50 million americans set to travel this week, the nation's top health experts are hoping that many of them plan to head in to get their vaccine shot either a booster or their first shot as they head to the airports and then hit the road. across the country, the push to get americans vaccinated, either through first shots or boosters. health officials are still hoping to head off a winter holiday surge. >> get it before thanksgiving. make sure that when you sit down at that thanksgiving table with the people you love you have the highest level of immunity to protect them. >> reporter: new covid cases are up 50% since late october. >> 11 yeses and zero nos. >> reporter: and friday the cdc-approved booster shots for all adults over 18. >> the vaccines themselves clearly are still highly
effective, but you want to make sure the durability of that protection is longer. and that's the reason why you get boosted. >> reporter: today is the deadline for federal workers to be vaccinated. low immunizations in the tsa have fueled fears there will be a shortage of security screeners at the nation's airports but the transportation secretary says those fears are unfounded. >> i have seen no indication that vaccine requirements are going to impact travel in any way. >> reporter: the number of daily vaccinations in the u.s. has nearly doubled in the past month but more than 60 million americans still remain unvaccinated. the president's top covid adviser says those who are should enjoy a traditional thanksgiving celebration. >> if you're vaccinated and hopefully you'll be boosted, too, and your family is, you can enjoy a typical thanksgiving meal, thanksgiving holiday with your family. there's no reason not to do that. >> reporter: longing for normal at a time that's been anything but. and a sign of the confusing times that we're living through.

mask mode. requiring everyone to mask up indoors regardless of their vaccination status. you might recall back in september, santa cruz dropped that mandate thanks to the slow spre cruz county has a high enough spread that it's firmly california as a whole is really hovering between high and substantial on the cdc's map. we're starting to see some progress right here in the bay area. five of our nine counties are now in the moderate tier. moving in the right direction. this includes san francisco, san mateo, contra costa, alameda and marin counties. that means for at least a week they've reported fewer than 50 cases per every 100,000 people. the rest of the bay area is orange which means substantial. the second worst criteria. >> with the statewide drought wearing on, san francisco is the latest bay area city asking people to cut back on water use. tomorrow the city's public utilities commission will

ahead to see if there's any issues whether you'll be hitting the road or you have family coming in. we'll talk about that in a few minutes. mike, how is it looking in san jose. >> we had that slowing for 101 and that did clear up. so that indicates lighter volume of traffic. that's the first. but we have a crash just before you get to taylor street. that may be a factor. two cars reported in the roadway and haven't had an update in the last few minutes. that may be early slowing just north of 280. meanwhile, everything else looks really clear right now as far as the flow. minor slowing out of the altamont pass. no major problems for vasco or through contra costa. typical spots, lighter volume. even at the bay bridge, lighter volume but no backup. holiday shopping about,he k retailers are making to eninsure your items arrive under the christmas tree on time. >> we got word president biden has made a decision on the fed chair. we'll try to update that and get

president biden will renominate jay powell to the post of fed chair for another four years. his other choice was to nominate lael brainerd. she was remain vice chair. their economic approaches were pretty similar. brainerd is seen as more of a dove perhaps, less likely to raise interest rates. powell was originally nominated by trump who chose to replace the then fed chair janet yellen. trump seemed to think powell would do what trump wanted. he was wrong about that. yellen now the secretary of the treasury. it's a shortened week for markets. the stock markets will be closed on thursday. they'll close at 10:00 a.m. our time on friday for a half day. market got hit pretty hard on friday. pa concern is coronavirus. more shut downs like austria. large silicon valley companies, mostly taking this week off, not that that many people go to the office in the first place. san francisco described is the most recent company to say it's
going to sublease its headquarters. and spotify removed one of the shuffle buttons on artist albums after the singer adele objected saying her album was meant to be listened to in order, as are most albums. you can still shuffle her new release "30" if you really wanted to. looking at the statistics, most people stream a single anyway, "easy on me." one third of the way to "rolling in the deep" which is quite old. you can listen tune artist's album the way they wanted you to or the way you wanted to. the same way you can have a jackson pollock painting but turn it upside down. who would know? >> jackson pollock. >> yeah, that's true. >> thanks, scott. 6:16. hopefully you've started, maybe finished your shopping for thanksgiving. if you haven't, prepare for some sticker shock when you're at the checkout. the ceo of walmart points out it seems like everything is costing more.

so last week a mega millions ticket worth $400,000 was sold in mountain view. well, if you win, then the music will be playing loud because you're probably excited. it was also playing last night during the american music awards. >> this year's new artist of the year olivia rodrigo is someone your kids probably have playing all the time. >> writing songs is my favorite thing in the whole world. and i am so grateful for everyone who has embraced my music. >> quite the talent there. korean supergroup bts taking home artist of the year and favorite pop star. other winners included ed sheeran for favorite male pop artist, and taylor swift for female pop artist. the weeknd and becky g also won awards. >> all right. congratulations to them all. congratulations to us because it looks like a nice forecast. >> look at the sunrise. >> kari hall is looking at that p. this is my favorite time of day. looking at all the cameras, the
beautiful sunrise. another nice one for us. and it's going to shape up to be a nice day, too. then when you step out there you're like, oh, let me run back in and get a warmer coat because it's 46 degrees. we'll see our temperatures slowly warming up as we go into late morning into the afternoon. you won't need that coat later on today because we're headed for 73 degrees in east san jose and morgan hill. cupertino, 70 but may want some light long sleeves for antioch reaching 65 today in fremont. 70 for a high. san mateo, 68. up to 66 downtown, 65 in sonoma and in ukiah today, 68 degrees. and, of course, it's going to be perfect this evening for downtown ice. mike inouye will be out there with kristi yamaguchi for the opening ceremony. it's going to be light jacket weather and, yeah, always perfect for hot chocolate, too, going into this evening. i know a lot of people are traveling or maybe have people
coming in town. looking at the airport delays, there are none anywhere across the country. it's fairly quiet weather, except for the showers that we're seeing all up and down the east coast. but that's going to be clearing out soon. so we'll see some dry weather continuing. there is a weak storm system off our coast that we'll see coming in for the next couple of days. the rain dries up before it gets here. there may be showers up around seattle, but not much for the bay area. even going into the weekend, we still are seeing some dry weather in the forecast and unfortunately that's not good for our drought but, of course, good for all the holiday activities you have going on, including shopping on friday. going into the weekend, we have some upper 60s, reaching 68, 67 degrees and we'll see more of the same in san francisco as well. not a big range in temperatures. whatever we're feeling for the coast will be about the same. you're seeing less traffic, mike, but still backed up in oakland. >> we'll get that on typical days. right at the holidays,
thanksgiving and then, of course, as we get close to the end of the year. we'll get almost no traffic and sometimes no metering lights. here traffic being metered because the volume is picking up on your typical patterns there. 37, highway 4. what do you notice? much less slowing than we typically see on a monday. crash clearing 580 at 24. no major issues. and that should be clear from lanes right now. smooth flowing traffic throughout the bay including the south bay. don't have that second burst just yet. lighter traffic, later build. back to you. 6:21. next on "today in the bay," nbc bay area responds. >> cashier says buy now, pay later. what should you say? i'm consumer investigator chris chmura. nbc bay area responds, next. and first our team here at nbc bay area and our partners at telemundo 48 teaming up with safeway to help fight hunger in the bay area. we kicked off this weekend our drive. laura and i, we spent the

principle amount which is the cost of goods. if you incurred any type of interest rates that you would still be responsible for those interest rates. >> don't just blindly buy in at the register. stop for a second. read what you really are getting into. and get answers to two fundamental questions. what is the real cost? what is it actually going to cost you? and second, what happens if i miss a payment? if you have trouble with buy now, pay later, tell us, whenever. go to nbcbayarea.com. click the response option or call us at 888-996-tips. >> thanks, chris. 6:26. after being reimagined because of the pandemic, a south bay holiday tradition is getting back to normal this year. christmas in the park at plaza de cesar chavez will return this friday. it features a new 65-foot walk-through christmas tree. last year san jose's christmas in the park had to be changed to a drive-through experience. people seemed to enjoy it so it will be offered again this year

impact, but you still may find it disturbing. this is an overhead shot showing the moment a vehicle ran into the crowd of people last night. police do have a person of interest in custody. he's been identified as 39-year-old daryl brook. as nbc's tom llamas reports, terrorism does not seem to be a motive. >> reporter: marcus and laura, good morning. as you can see, police are still on the scene here trying to figure out the why here. why someone would do this. they tell us around 4:30 yesterday as the streets are packed with families, packed with spectators for this holiday parade, a driver broke through barricades not unlike these and got right onto main street, started plowing into people, hitting all types of different groups including kids dancing and marching in the parade and another group called the dancing grannies. a priest from the archdiocese of milwaukee was also hit. and so many victims here that people had to just scoop up their loved ones and rush over to the hospital because there were not enough ambulances.
right now we're being told by several people who have been briefed on the investigation that terror -- terrorism does not seem to be a motive here. it appears maybe the driver was fleeing some type of knife fight from earlier in the night but police are also trying to figure that out. there will be a press conference later this afternoon where we'll have more information. unfortunately so far five people have died. and there are 40 people injured and all across this community they are praying those people in the hospital survive. that's the latest here from waukesha. back to you guys. >> simply tragic there. thank you. 6:36. here's a live look at the federal courthouse some san jose where elizabeth holmes' criminal fraud trial is at a critical and surprising stage. happening today, she will return to the stand testifying in her own defense. the end of the day on friday, the defense called the theranos founder and former ceo. she talked about her time at stanford and how her early career exploded. most legal experts did not expect her to risk testifying on her own behalf.
prosecutors will have the chance this week to cross-examine her and her faulty blood testing technology. follow the theranos trial online. just click on elizabeth holmes trial coverage. the pandemic and two weeks until the wider covid vaccination rollout. bay area counties have some of the highest rates in the state for 5 to 11-year-olds. looking at the dashboard, about 10% now partially vaccinated statewide. you can see right here the bay area rates are about double that. in marin, it's three times as high at 30%. >> how about a breath of fresh air with a live look outside at the golden gate bridge this morning. a chilly one at that. let's check in with meteorologist kari hall. think it will warm up later today? >> yes, it's going to be a nice afternoon. you just need a warmer jacket for the start of the day. and visibility for the most part has been good all around the bay area for oakland, as you head out. it's in the upper 40s. we're seeing a warming trend in
the forecast throughout the morning. reaching into the mid60s later today. don't have the dense fog we've seen lately around the bay and there's still some patchy fog around novato. for the most part we do see a clear start and headed for a sunny day. reaching into the mid-60s for dublin. low 70s for morgan hill. santa rosa, temperatures there reaching 70 degrees and we have more sunshine in the forecast for our holiday week. i'll talk more about that coming up in a few minutes. mike, you are seeing more of a backup out of the east bay. >> 580. this is 580 at the richmond bridge heading over towards san rafael. the backup forming. looks like quite a volume of traffic but it's really just at the toll plaza itself. that little blip. this crash also off to the shoulder caused a little distraction in richmond. out of lanes now. the bay bridge toll plaza is full but the span moves well and the approach does, too, out of the maze. and slowing from concord back
into pittsburg. took awhile now. it's 6:38 for that build up. a lighter volume all over the bay. san jose just starting slow for 101. much more interest downtown. let's look at what i posted on facebook from a few years ago. kristi yamaguchi and i every year, except for last year, able to be on the ice at downtown san jose rnd the circle of palms. of course, kristi is an olympic champion there. i am standing next to her. as we look at the event for tonight. 5:30 tonight. less than 11 hours to get down there. get ready, folks. bring a jacket. it's going to cool down again. we'll be under the circle of palms across from christmas in the park which is what you talked about opening on friday. tonight, this is the opening ceremony for the 25th year for downtown ice. kristi yamaguchi downtown than practice my skating skills to impress kristi yamaguchi and mike. >> that's right. >> or go buy a pillow.
>> that i will need. thanks, mike. >> 6:39. switching gears. coming up next, a young life taken by a stray bullet. in this case, a boy simply doing what most kids love to do. a heartbreak this morning for one southern california family and the emotional message from a chief of police there. president biden just made a very important decision on the future of the fed. let's take you out to wall street. where the dow is up. they have a shortened workweek this week. plus -- >> i'm cierra johnson in san francisco. coming up, we'll walk you through the banksy exhibit. the mysterious artist known as banksy and his work. we'll show you some of his best pieces.
we love our house, been here for years. yeah. but there's an animal in the attic. (loud drumming) yeah yeah yeah yeah!!!! (animal drumming in distance) (loud drumming) drums! drums! aaaaaahhhh! at least geico makes bundling our home and car insurance easy. we save a lot. aaaaaahhhh! ohhh! (loud drumming) animal! aaaaaahhhh! for bundling made easy, go to geico.com. uh-oh...
it's 6:43. as you step outside, it's a chilly start. some spots in the upper 30s. that's what we're seeing insa. but a mild day ahead. we'll take a look at our forecast coming up. >> and the bay bridge toll plaza has the backup. the metering lights weren't turned on until 6:00 a.m. 20 minutes later than usual. just filling in the lanes. not packed in yet. still the backup here and we'll show you where else this pattern is pushing out. it's 6:43. southern california community is mourning the death of a 13-year-old boy shot and killed while playing video games in his home. he died from a stray bullet
through his window saturday night in pasadena. his death is sparking a lot of grief and a growing memorial outside of his home. the pasadena chief of police believes the gunfire may be the product of a recent surge in gang violence in pasadena, including other shootings offer the past few weeks. the identity of the shooter is still a mystery. 6:44. president biden will renominate jerome powell as fed chairman. >> scott mcgrew was originally actually tapped by president trump. >> powell was. he is keeping the fed chair from a previous administration. powell and biden pretty much see eye to eye as best we can tell. biden's other logical choice was lael brainerd. their economic approaches pretty similar though brainerd is seen less likely to raise interest rates. brainerd had support from more liberal democrats. she was under secretary of the
treasury under barack obama. has served on the federal reserve board of governors since 2014. biden will probably be very well aware that no matter who he picked, it was going to be something that came -- upset one side or the other. also the decision comes at a time he's trying to unify democrats around build back back, not split them apart. now that build back better has passed the house, satisfying conservative democrats probably more important than making the liberal wing happy. "the washington post" reports biden has told insiders that he does plan to run for a second term. that raises questions about his age. he would be 81 at the start of his next term if he ran and won. biden is already our oldest president at the time of election. trump was the second oldest. reagan, a spry 69 when he was elected. he gets third place. if you are old enough you'll recall mr. reagan clearly struggled with his age at the end of the second term.
he was 77 that's a year younger than president biden is now. normally incumbent presidents don't talk about re-election this early. first, it's just part of the plan. second it might take money away from candidates that the president wants to win like in the midterms. which is why any talk of a second term seems to be behind closed doors. a lot of people wonder who would run if biden didn't or maybe run anyway. the two top contenders are the obvious, vice president harris and recently transportation secretary pete buttigieg. he was asked about that supposed rivalry on "meet the press." >> has it at all impacted your relationship with the vice president that it seems as if there's this narrative of a rivalry developing between the two of you? >> no because she and i are part of a team that is disciplined. and doesn't focus on what's obsessing the commentators. we're too busy with a job to do. >> congress out for the week.
when it comes back, a lot to do. funding the government. it runs out of money days after congress returns december 3rd. even if congress decides to do this, the government will default on its loans unless they raise the debt ceiling. a reminder, the debt ceiling deals with past debt, same way your credit card bill covers what you already the new infrastructure plan is not part of debt. obviously neither is build medi. president biden expected to speak about jay powell here shortly. we'll tweet about it on twitter, @scottmcgrew. happening today in san francisco, new exhibit is opening up showing off the life and works of an rnd ground street artist who gained game creating really revolutionary pieces. the mysterious banksy. >> cierra johnson is live for us this morning with a look at that exhibit which is located at the palace of fine arts. and has more on what we can expect when the doors open.
>> good morning. i think it's safe to say i have the best assignment of the day. i am at the palace of fine arts here in san francisco. joined by vicente, the co-producer of this amazing exhibit. thank you for waking up so early with us. first question, why banksy? why feature this artist and his work? >> good morning. thanks for being here. we love banksy more than just the artist himself. we like him as a pop icon. and the mystique around the pop icon is these days. we thought it would be amazing to get an original art exhibit of his and, you know, open to the public and have the opportunity to show it to the public around the world. >> and i know some of us have seen some of the work, the girl with the balloon, the flowers. but there's a lot more to this artist than just those two pieces we may have seen. >> absolutely. that's part of the premise, too. we kind of walk the audience
through banksy's timeline of his career. how he got started. milestones throughout his career that really catapulted him to the pop icon status where he is now. so we try to bring that to the experience as well. >> and some of these pieces are thought-provoking but some of them are just funny and creative and colorful. i guess describe the range of this artist. >> yeah, there's a lot of new reverence, a lot of funny -- we have a lot of quotes, too, throughout and those -- some of those are just hilarious. but, yes, all of this is not taken too seriously. and on the other hand we're talking about amazing art worth millions of dollars. it's a very cool experience. >> how many pieces are in this exhibit? >> over 90 original banksy art works here. >> 90 originals gathered from a ton of collectors. >> correct. they belong to our collectors who legitimately purchased the works at any given time and, yes, there are several collectors involved.
>> very lucky collectors. if you aren't a collector n you'd like to see them in person, when does it start? how long does it run? >> we're open november 22nd, today. we're running -- we just extending now through popular demand through february 27th which we're very excited about. banksy exhibit.com is the best place to gather all sorts of information. for ticket purchasing. we're at the palace of fine arts which we're super excited about. so that's the best way to get gallery information on the show. >> all right. i know it will be an amazing show. just walking around here for the short amount of time i've been here, it's been awesome. the city is in for a great treat. we're in san francisco, cierra johnson for "today in the bay." >> glad to see it's extended, too. >> a lot to see. something else to see this morning, kari hall, that sunrise is beautiful. >> it is. and it's great to see because a lot of mornings at this time it's been foggy. so we do have a clear start to
the day. it's going to be nice and sunny. into the rest of the day. but it is also very chilly as you step out the door right now. in the mid40s. we'll go into the mid-50s by late morning and low 70s by early in the afternoon. take a look at our temperatures reaching 70 in palo alto. san rafael, high there of 68 degrees. 70 in santa rosa. 72 in san jose. really nice weather for mike inouye and kristi yamaguchi and the opening of downtown ice. nice light long sleeve weather and definitely hot chocolate. it's going to be nice for that as well as whatever you're planning to do throughout the week. we know that a lot of people are traveling. you may have family coming this way. well, i am seeing this one delay at the miami airport for 30 minutes but that's the only one across the country. zooming in a little bit here locally we are seeing no airport delays. so we're looking good. we just have to watch the east
coast because there have been some showers rolling through and maybe that's what's affecting some of those delays around miami. looking at our weather and what's coming our way, well, very weak systems passing by. for the next several days. the rain just dries up before it gets here. would be nice to get a good soaker, but with all the things going opeople would probably prefer the dry weather. that's what we'll see going into thanksgiving. temperatures remaining very comfortable with highs in the mid-60s. upper 60s for the weekend. big shopping weekend. especially if you want to buy local on saturday. we'll see highs in the mid-60s in san francisco. mike, you are seeing some slowing on the san mateo bridge. >> i'm not sure why to be honest. here's the slowdown. it was a little worse a few minutes ago. sometimes someone across the flat section hits their brakes. a little slowing.
what is going on is the backup and the build for the contra costa county area toward the bay bridge. lighter volumes. still a backup at the bay bridge. >> thank you very much, mike. it's 6:52. happening now, target is anounsing it will close all of its stores on thanksgiving this year and future years. its workers responded well to having the day off to spend with family. target will be open on black friday. and next a quick look at the top stories including a surprise twist initiated by the defendant. theranos founder elizabeth holmes in her own words. the fireworks some expect to see in the courtroom. and smash and grabs. thieves targeting multiple locations across the bay area. we'll tell you about the changes quickly taking place at holiday shopping season hits overdrive. first, i am streaming live for you on facebook. give you a behind the scenes look at what's going on on "today on the bay."
weekend of organized thefts. >> bob redell live at stoneridge mall in pleasanton. this is where another attempted break-in was reported. this is not what store owners really need right now, specially before the holidays. >> or ever, for that matter. good morning, marcus and laura. around 3:00 this morning, pleasanton police arrived here at the stoneridge mall behind me in pleasanton. you can see they lit up one of the side entrances near the men's warehouse. there's also video of broken glass in one of the doors nearby. not clear if anyone got into the mall. could have been an attempted break-in. we have reached out to pd. we have not heard back. up north of here in walnut creek, saturday night around 80 people stormed the nordstrom department store in that town. it was like a well-organized operation. people sprinting to waiting cars carrying bags full of merchandise. three people were arrested. all charged with robbery. one of them is also charged with being a felon in possession of a
gun. last night walnut creek police posted on social media a warning about the possibility of more robberies in its shopping district. again after the nordstrom incident. nordstrom's did remain closed yesterday. some high-end shops like tiffany's asked customers to leave early so they could close early. as far as we know yesterday and last night was quiet. reporting live in pleasanton, bob redell, "today in the bay." a live look at the federal course in san jose where elizabeth holmes criminal fraud trial is at a critical and surprising stage. happening today, she will return to the stand testifying in her own defense. at the end of the day on friday, the defense called the theranos founder and former ceo. she talked about her time at stanford and how her early career exploded. prosecutors have the chance to prosecute her about her failed company and its faulty blood testing technology. a live look at sfo where thanksgiving travel rush may be ready to collide head on with a shortage of security screeners.
today is the deadline for federal workers, including tsa agents to show they are fully vaccinated and last friday more than 40% were still unvaccinated. it's possible if you travel this week that you may face longer lines at check points but the tsa is confident there will be no disruptions. time to get a look at the forecast for you. meteorologist kari hall. >> a lot of people will be traveling ahead of and maybe after thanksgiving. and we are going to continue to see dry weather in our forecast. temperatures reaching into the mid to upper 60s. mike? >> better news for the san mateo bridge. whatever we saw that was a problem cleared. that's what we expect around much of the bay. the bay bridge, this is lighter. we see movement in the lanes. i know discriminating eyes william say that it is moving faster than typical. anyone else will say it's still backed up there. both are right. >> a lot of white cars out there this morning. interesting. >> a white christmas.
we don't get the snow here. >> look at this sunrise that we're leaving you with on this monday morning. a nice way to start our day. thanks for joining us. we'll be back at 7:25 with live local news updates. >> the "today" show coming up next. go good morning. breaking overnight, parade tragedy. a holiday celebration near milwaukee filled with families turns to terror and bloodshed. an suv suddenly plowing into the crowd at high speed. at least five people killed, more than others injured. this morning, police questioning a person of interest in custody and our live interview with an eyewitness, just an arm's reach away. finally free, two of the missionaries held hostage in haiti for more than a month suddenly released. safe now and in good spirits. but what about the 15 others
