6:39. to decision 2020. instead of the debate last night we saw dueling town halls. >> scott mcgrew one on abc and one on nbc. and running at the same time. joe biden was on abc. polls show this is his election to lose if he can avoid missteps. numbers put him way, way ahead. biden was asked a question last night that he has ducked in the past. would he add more judges to the supreme court if he became president. >> don't voters have a right to know -- >> they do have a right to know where i stand. they have a right to know where i stand before they vote. >> you'll come out with a clear position before election day? >> yes, depending on how they handle this. >> overall biden turned in a good performance especially for someone who has to be very careful about not making any misstatements that have gotten him into trouble in the past. much of the conversation was about the biggest threat facing america, the coronavirus, and
6:41 am
the president's response to it. >> the president has a responsibility to lead, and he didn't do that. he didn't talk about what needed to be done because he kept worrying, in my view, about the stock market. he should have talked about how bad this could be and then the market would be down. his barometer to success is the market. >> president trump was on nbc at the very same time. people critical of that timing saying president trump should not get airtime after he refused to participate in the second debate scheduled for the same night. instead of the debate he got savannah guthrie who in addition to being a "today" show host is also a lawyer. >> just this week you re-tweeted to your 87 million followers a conspiracy theory that joe biden orchestrated to have s.e.a.l. team six killed to cover-up the fake death of bin laden.
6:42 am
now why would you send that to your followers? you re-tweeted it. >> that was a re-fwetweet. that was an opinion of somebody. it was a re-tweet. >> i don't get that. you're the president. you're not like someone's crazy uncle who re-tweets whatever. >> it was a re-tweet and i do a lot of re-tweets. frankly because the media is so fake and so corrupt, if i didn't have social media, i don't call it twitter, i call it social media, i wouldn't be able to get the word out. >> well, the word is false. >> some exasperation. he said i denounce white supremacy. i denounced white supremacy for years. many people were frustrated nbc gave airtime in competition with joe biden. nbc the parent network of this television station said for fairness sake it aired the interview with president trump in the same timeslot it had
6:43 am
aired its earlier nbc town hall with joe biden. nbc saying we share in the frustration that our event will be initially airing alongside the first half of abc's broadcast with vice president joe biden. no one wants this but we must honor our commitment to treat both equitably. you know where to find me on twitter. i'm @scott mcgrew. we have a special on the elections coming up. >> sounds good. bob redell, turnout has been huge. >> reporter: record numbers. california secretary of state said this time four years ago only 450,000 have determine their ballots by mail or drop-off boxes like this one at city hall. so far this year over 2.1
6:44 am
million californians have already returned their ballots. those are the latest numbers as of wednesday. take a look at your tv screen. just over half a million of those ballots were returned right here in the bay area. you can see the breakdown by county. contra costa had the highest rate. santa clara county the lowest. both republicans and democrats are voting early primarily for two reasons. one, president trump has warned about potential voter fraud even though there is no evidence that there is widespread voter fraud. and, two, there are concerns about voter suppression. voters want to make sure their ballot arrives early so it counsel. former california governor arnold schwarzenegger is criticizing his own party here in the state of california. we're talking about the california gop for setting up nonofficial -- unofficial drop boxes to collect ballots from voters so they can be returned to county election offices. now the state says those boxes
6:45 am
are illegal and have ordered the gop to remove them but republicans say they are using the boxes to collect a ballot as allowed under california's ballot harvesting law. here was schwarzenegger last night on cnn. >> it's a stupid thing to do right now with the ballot boxes. i think it's just nimickey mous stuff. what they should do is really offer people hope and be out there and really make everyone participate and make everyone go and be able to vote. >> reporter: the ap reports at least one democratic campaign is using neighborhood hubs where designated volunteers receive ballots at their homes from voters and then turn those in to
6:46 am
the county election offices. reporting live, bob redell, "today in the bay." >> all right, bob, thank you. a live look at globe life field in texas where tonight it will be game five of the national league championship series. and giants fans will note that the dodgers now have their backs against the wall because last night the braves got a best of clay kershaw. they came up with six runs in the sixth inning and beat the dodgers, 10-2. the braves now lead three games to one. quite the player. you can catch it all here on nbc bay area. this morning a lot of questions who will play. kris sanchez live at levi's. talk about the deal here. what's going on? >> reporter: well, you know very well that the 49ers are trying to flip the script on their season and get back to salvaging what's left but it will be hard
6:47 am
to do that without jimmy garoppolo starting at qb. garoppolo did practice this week which coach kyle shanahan says is the only way he can tell if the starting qb is, in fact, ready to start. halfway through the game against the dolphins last week garoppolo took a seat. that high ankle sprain still giving him trouble three weeks after he sprained it. >> if he can play he still has to perform. i'll be the judge of that. if he has a good week of practice and gives us the best chance to win then i won't hesitate. if it looks like it hurts in the game and is prohibiting him, we'll do what we did again. >> reporter: so when coach kyle shanahan benched garoppolo he put in beathard, the week before that nick mullens. we'll have to see who starts if it's not jimmy g. santa clara county's covid eased up but not enough to allow for fans to sit inside levi's
6:48 am
stadium, and it's too bad because the weather is supposed to be perfect for prime time football on sunday. restaurants can now serve indoors at limited capacity so you might be able to go and see the game at one of your local pubs. you can catch the game here on nbc bay area. claim the best spot on your couch. our coverage starts at 4:00 in the afternoon. really jealous of raj mathai and janelle wang because they'll be inside the stadium reporting live from here even without the fans it's pretty exciting. you have to follow them on their social media pages. >> always a fun time out there, kris. thanks so much, kris. the question now, vianey, will the heat go away by sunday? yes! keep it short and sweet. we're going to be seeing lovely weather and the temperatures will be in the 70s. a big difference from the 90s.
6:49 am
i think what also helps the fact it's a nighttime game. i'm hearing different voices in my ear piece. kickoff is at 5:20 and i think that helps, too, the fact it's an evening game. daytime highs in the 80s. things should cool off nicely. talk about clear conditions, this is it. halftime, 74 degrees. the fourth quarter, 68. it's going to be really a good one. the players will enjoy it. they might get a little warm with the 80s but it will cool off. let's talk about your highlights for today. what are things that we talked about during our morning forecast that you might have missed? high fire danger, still dry and hot, but those mountain wind gusts that we saw last night and this morning are going to start to diminish which is why that red flag warning is still on trend to expire at 11:00 a.m. today. also that heat advisory will remain in effect through 9:00 p.m. tonight. the reason for that is because of this -- we're going to be nearing record high
6:50 am
temperatures. potentially even setting new record daily highs. we hit some new records yesterday when it came to daily highs. oakland, 92. napa, 97. half moon bay already at 80 degrees. half moon bay, 86. what about those winds? as i mentioned the red flag warning is set to expire so notice that at 11:00 a.m. when it's set to expire calistoga and napa start to see it really nice decline in the winds, getting breezy by 2:00. winds 10 to 15 miles an hour in through the afternoon. so that's good news there. definitely what we like to see. the air quality forecast is going to remain moderate. that basically means while there's still a fire burning, if you live near the area we could be dealing with those hazy skies and the drifting smoke but overall moderate air quality expected for today. how long is this heat going to last? is there rain in the forecast? there is no rain in the forecast but we will be seeing a shift in
6:51 am
the wind going from offshore wind to an onshore event that will help us significantly cool down. mother nature's ac heading into sunday for san francisco. still going to be warmer. you'll see noticeable temperature drops by next week into monday, tuesday and wednesday, back down into more seasonable. i know it's october but it's not feeling like it right now. fire danger expires at 11:00. notice that trend starts to get even cooler heading into next week but as mike said earlier you can definitely wash your car. that is forecaster approved. mike? audio problems, did you say you'd wash my car? i hope that's what you said. there's a little bit of slowing -- you can correct me later. looking at the south bay we know the sensors are changing to the orange northbound 101. a little bit of a build there
6:52 am
but nothing major overall. the arrow shows you the remaining slowdown south 880 right around whipple. we had some slowing for 10 to 15 minutes looking better for the nimitz. the nimitz over to the bay bridge toll plaza. the span itself shows some slowing. we talked about things, maybe the metering lights showed up. the metering lights are still on but i think they're moving pretty smoothly now. there's no backup at the toll plaza. that increases the speeds the last half hour. the richmond side of the bridge an easy flow of traffic. good, steady volume. good news out of richmond. b.a.r.t., it sounds like the trains resumed normal service and that's good after earlier delays. back to you. happening now for you oakland school officials say mcclymonds high school is safe for stuns and staff eight months after the discovery of a chemical. the campus was shut down one month before the start of the
6:53 am
pandemic when the toxic chemical was found in the groundwater under the school. the district is going to hold a virtual news conference today. students and teachers will continue distance learning. 6:52. up next a quick look at the top stories we're following for you including thousands without power this morning. we're going to tell you when pg&e says full power should be restored. plus, a surprise discovery of a preschool gets a visit from a lemur missing from the san francisco zoo. straight ahead in a live report why the mystery around its disappearance is still not over. you're watching "today in the bay."
