11:04 pm
higher totals you've seen around the south bay. san jose 1.72 inches of rain. this is the wettest two-day stretch going back to february 28th. and march 1. and very likely we'll pass that number. it's headed our way for tuesday and wednesday. right now light rain in san jose. a few showers at times around the golden gate bridge. interestingly, san francisco has seen the heaviest rain throughout the weekend. as christie smith mentioned, closing in to around an inch at twin peaks. 3/4, now seeing the scattered showers lift off towards marin county. and that is going to be the tale of tomorrow's weather pattern. some breaks from the showers at times and a few isolated showers moving from south to north. you see still snowshowers out there towards the sierra. but now our attention is turning to the third storm in the series. and this one will pack a bigger punch. a one-two punch of wind, plus heavy rain at times, tapping into tropical moisture which will increase the rain falling per hour for specific parts of the bay area. we'll show you just how much rain we expect out of the system
11:05 pm
and how long that rain could be now lingering in that microclimate seven-day forecast. we'll look at this coming up in a few minutes. >> certainly affecting a lot of folks. thank you so much, rob. hundreds of people still trying to make it home to the bay area tonight, thanks to flight cancellations and long delays at airports across the country. nbc bay area's marianne favro visited both san jose international and sfo. tonight she has a look at what travellers are facing. >> we talked to one woman who arrived two and a half hours late because she does delayed in denver because of the fog. at sfo we found even more delayed passengers. as air travelers well know, the departure board can make our break your journey. >> you kidding me? >> reporter: at sfo, it showed major delays, including this one, a three-hour wait for passengers catching a flight to austin, texas. >> people watch, i guess. >> reporter: tony, who is headed home to las vegas, is looking at an even longer wait. >> we're going to sit here. there is not much to do in an airport. and everything is atrociously expensive, you know.

a lot of shaking going on in sedona. a magnitude 4.7 earthquake rattled nerves north of sedona, arizona tonight. the quake struck about 7 miles north of sedona about an hour ago. the shaking was 30 minutes north of the epicenter in flagstaff, and as far north as tuba city, which is about two hours away. so far there are no reports of injuries or damage. and the resignation of ferguson police officer darren wilson has done little to ease protests around the country tonight. those angry about the death of michael brown once again blocked traffic in major american cities such as washington, d.c. the controversy even took center stage for a moment during an nfl game. nbc's ron allen has that story. >> reporter: darren wilson, 28 and recently married to another ferguson police officer, expecting their first child, is no longer with the police force. wilson has been getting death threats, according to his attorneys, who also say he made his decision to resign minutes after hearing from the police chief that others could be in
11:13 pm
danger. chief tom jackson would not go into detail about the threats. were there threats against the department and him as well? >> oh, there has been. >> you take these seriously? >> absolutely. >> what made them credible? >> who is making the threat and carrying it out. that's what has to be assessed. >> and are they still out there? >> oh, yes. >> in a letter, wilson said it is my hope that my resignation will allow the community to heal. today the mayor echoes that sentiments. >> the city of ferguson will not be making a severance payment to officer wilson. now is the time for city of ferguson to begin its healing process. >> reporter: at a church service this morning with michael brown's parents attending, they said the battle has not been about whether wilson stayed on the police force. >> it was not about darren wilson's job. it was about michael brown's justice. >> reporter: today several players from the hometown st. louis rams took the field holding their hands up, as many believe michael brown did when he was shot and killed. >> hands up, don't shoot!
11:14 pm
>> reporter: across the country, demonstrations in cities like portland and washington, d.c., where protesters blocked traffic. >> ferguson -- >> reporter: in ferguson, the annual holiday lights parade postponed because of the unrest, a thanksgiving dinner and toy giveaway for hundreds of families, trying to get into the holiday spirit. >> where is ferguson right now? >> you know, we're still in a point where we're hoping to feel like the worst is over. >> you're still not certain what is going to happen tomorrow, tonight, going forward? >> that's what kind of holding us back from moving forward at this point is that tension out on the street. >> that was nbc's ron allen reporting. a small group gathered at an oakland church today to remember michael brown and other victims. the oakland naacp and two other groups organized the village until honor of brown. they also remembered others who have been killed in police violence. the prayer vigil was held at the phoebe memorial cathedral. and their boat sank off the
11:15 pm
coast of oregon, but tonight five people are back on solid ground safe and sound. this happened in a bay off of the northern part of oregon. now before rescuers could reach the boat, it took on too much water and sank. take a look at this video here of the helicopter crew that pulled three of those crewmembers to safety while the coast guard boat picked up the other two. it's not clear what led up to that emergency. meteorologist rob mayeda is here with the microclimate forecast. we know you have been so busy back in the weather center. >> we're still halfway back. showers into marin county now leaving san francisco into the north bay. and other spots around the bay area. east bay towards the tri-valley missing out for the moment. south bay, you're seeing some of that too. just some clouds passing by from south to north. but the widely scattered showers we're seeing right now is kind of a sneak preview what you're going to find during the day tomorrow. we'll see enough moisture in the air as it rises some of the hilltops. and temperatures are going to be staying fairly mild.
11:16 pm
so right now we're in the mid-50s out there. not too chilly tonight. and for tomorrow morning, we'll see scattered showers, and the temperatures right about where they are right now. mid 50s across the bay area. as we go into the afternoon, despite the fact we have rain in the forecast, that southerly flow aloft is going to bring our temperatures into the mid-60s around san jose, heading into the afternoon. 67 for a high. peninsula temperatures low to mid-60s. we'll see around san francisco also mid 60s for highs tomorrow. low 60s in the north bay with scattered showers at times. the best threat around santa rosa towards the sonoma coastline. and for the tri-valley, you'll see highs in the mid- to upper 60s. things will start to change as we head into tomorrow night as this system right here that is spinning offshore, pulling in tropical moisture out of the south. and as this low deepens offshore, the closer it possibles towards the bay area. that's going to increase southerly winds that we'll start to experience late tomorrow night and heading towards tuesday. what is unique about the last system in the series is how much the tropical moisture is going to have to work with us.
11:17 pm
it pulls it up west of baja, california. pulls it into this area of low pressure and directs a lot of that energy towards the central coast, there is a heavy rain potential. this weekend a quarter inch to half inch rainfall rates per hour. could see a little bit higher than that at times around the santa cruz mountains. watch out as that rain starts to set up and picks up in intensity as we go through midday tuesday. tonight through monday evening, widely scattered showers. mostly around the hills and peninsula. then as we head into tuesday morning, that's when the main event is getting started. we're going to see the winds picking up around the coastline and the hills. rain increasing for tuesday morning. and probably into the early tuesday evening. as the low gets closer to the coast, the chance of seeing isolated thundershowers. heavy rain beginning to taper off as we get into wednesday night. we're not expecting heavy rain for tomorrow. but by tuesday morning, you can see the rain crossing the santa cruz mountains 10:00 tuesday. some pretty good downpours. and a little bit of a break into tuesday night. and one more round coming through as we get into wednesday. so heaviest rain of the week
11:18 pm
coming in. midday tuesday into wednesday. but here is a change now in the forecast. thursday into friday, still enough instability and a trough moving by. we're going to keep showers by the end of the week for san jose, san francisco, north valley and tri-valley. the wind and heaviest rain for tuesday and wednesday. but next weekend after all this rain, it looks like we're going catch a break. high pressure is going to start to build in. temperature is not moving a whole lot. the dryer pattern will take us saturday into sunday, giving us time to dry out as the midweek weather system could bring three to four inches of rain in some of the coastal hill tops and another 1 to 2 inches around the rest of the bay area. peggy? >> good news for the drought, for sure. thank you so much, rob. coming up next, how to shop smart and secure this cyber monday. a few tips to keep in mind when you hit the web. plus, we investigate disturbing allegations of sexual assault inside one of the largest federal agencies, the postal service. we're going bring you two stories of women who say they were assaulted and then punished while their attackers were allowed to retire. that's coming up.

disturbing allegation are emerging against the u.s. postal service. several women have come forward saying they were sexually harassed, even attacked. an instead of getting help, they were punished when they reported it. tisha thompson has been investigating the trend for months, and we want to warn you some of the details you're going to hear in this report are graphic. >> reporter: it was a frigid morning when we climbed this mountain near albany, new york. >> we made it! >> reporter: to meet this woman, diane caruso ruston. diane said she had to be tough to work more than a decade inside a large postal processing plant where they sort mail 24 hours a day. >> the culture's post office, it is an old boys club. >> reporter: gte good at getting along with the boys working alongside her, diane thought she was going to get a promotion when she walked into one of her manager's offices. >> next thing i know he pushed me up against the wall.
11:29 pm
and he pushes down the left side of my pants, which, you know, the stretchy pants, and he licked my leg. i was like. i got startled. and then he took his thing out and he told me to kiss it. >> reporter: the married mother of two says she pushed her way out of the room and quickly wrote down everything that happened before filing a formal complaint through her union. that she says is when the retaliation began. >> one of those supervisors grabbed me and told me you better keep your mouth shut. if you know what's good for you. >> reporter: diane says the retaliation grew worse as a team of investigators tried to get her to sign an incorrect statement of fax. she refused. and that, not the assault, is what finally broke her. >> it's the cover-up, the intimidation that they do to you. >> reporter: we uncovered a list of reported sexual assaults
11:30 pm
against postal employees across the country never before released to the public, including eight in the california area within the last few years. records we obtained showed the assaults ranged from men groping and flashing mail carriers on their routes to more serious attacks like violent rape. but then we saw this. when we added it all up, we realized one out of every five sexual assaults against postal employees were committed by other postal employees. >> to ask somebody to get down on their knees in the middle of the aisle in the middle of a work room floor to give you oral sex i think is -- if that's not sexual harassment, what is? >> reporter: noel whalen says her managers repeatedly ignored multiple complaints she made about being harassed, stalked and finally sexually assaulted by one of her supervisors inside this processing plant in connecticut. >> this is a person that i had
11:31 pm
asked numerous times not to touch me. not to go near me, not to speak inappropriately to me. and he then attacks me. >> reporter: noel kept all of her paperwork. but when we asked the post office for its records on the investigation of her attack, we received hundreds of blank and redacted pages. but the post office assured us it has a zero tolerance policy for sexual assault. >> when the federal government is an employer and it doesn't follow its own rules, that makes the sense of betrayal or, you know, wrongness somehow worse. >> reporter: sexual violence experts like maya says this list could be much longer because sexual assault is one of the most underreported crimes. and as we reported, noel and diane's cases were investigated by their human resources document, meaning their cases were never reported to the
11:32 pm
postal service's internal police list and never made to it our list. >> if it's unwanted, in most place that's some sort of battery, let's say. >> reporter: to get answers, we repeatedly asked to interview postmaster general patrick donahoe until in august, we were told by a spokeswoman if we tried to approach him, we could be investigated and arrested for threatening a postal employee. which is how we ended up at this news conference at the postal museum two weeks ago as the postmaster general released a new holiday stamp. we counted at least 11 different people in his team scrambling to keep us from interviewing their boss, pleading us with not to approach him. >> mr. donahoe. did you know -- >> reporter: donahoe told us the postal service uses an extensive process to investigate violence against its employees. >> there is nothing ever that is
11:33 pm
left uninvestigated. we prosecute people to the fullest extent of the law. >> some of your employees have told me after they were sexually assaulted they were retaliated against after they filed a complaint. >> the postal service has a number of avenues for employees to air issues, whether it's the hotline, the grievance process, eoc. we have watched these carefully over the years. we have taken it very seriously and acted on it. >> i'm sure as a boss, it also concerns you that your employees are saying that what do you want to tell them? >> our employees are safe. we provide a safe environment. we provide an environment where if there is a problem, we respond to it. >> reporter: that was nbc's tisha thompson reporting. both women in her report say while they were retaliated against until they went on medical leave, their attackers were allowed to simply retire from the postal service. and coming up next, a the growing fallout surrounding ray rice after a judge ruled that his indefinite suspension should have never happened. we'll also hear from jenae rice,

11:36 pm
assigned to patrol that site regularly. well, on this football sunday, there is new fallout from the ray rice ruling. questions are now swirling about his possible return to the field while others are demanding answers from the nfl commissioner. nbc's kristen welker reports. >> reporter: as the ravens took on the chargers today, it was baltimore's former running back ray rice just reinstated into the nfl who was the big topic of conversation off the field. >> everybody deserves a second chance in life. >> i think, yeah, it's right. let him come back. >> some team is going to pick him up. some team is going the want him for the play-off stretch. >> reporter: today espn is reporting that multiple teams have expressed interest in rice, including the saints and the colts. but no indication they'll pursue him. >> there are teams that have a definite need for a running back. they might be willing to take a chance. i think fans might willing to live. america loves people who can make up for past wrongs. >> reporter: on friday, an nfl arbitrator through the suspension of ray rice, saying the league was wrong to punish
11:37 pm
him twice. in july, nfl commissioner roger goodell suspended rice for two games. then in september, after graphic video surfaced of rice assaulting his then fiancee and now wife, goodell suspended him indefinitely, saying in part that rice was ambiguous in their original meeting. janay rice with an interview with matt lauer. >> the nfl says ray was ambiguous, and the nfl says that it was starkly different sequence of events, is the commissioner lying? >> i can't say he's telling the whole truth, you know. i know for a fact that ray told it's true, that he has been telling from february. >> and you think the league and the commissioner covered their butts? >> i think they did what they had to do for themselves. >> reporter: the nfl declined to comment on janay's account, but wrote in a memo this weekend to club owners no part of the arbitrator's decision questions
11:38 pm
the commissioners' honesty or integrity nor his good faith consideration of the issue when he imposed the indefinite suspension on ray rice. still, the ruling continues to generate criticism of goodell. >> the public has not had the greatest impression of roger goodell right now, and rightfully. so but he makes the owners money. and that's what they care about. >> and you can watch the entire exclusive interview with janay and ray rice tomorrow and tuesday on the today show. that begins at 7:00 tomorrow morning right after today in the bay. first responders who helped the city of buffalo, new york during last week's massive snowstorm were honored today at the game between the buffalo bills and the cleveland browns. if you remember, that area got a whopping 7 feet of snow. even the locals say they have never seen that much. officials representing the agencies involved in storm relief efforts were on the field before kickoff. they were met by a standing ovation from the group. much deserved, that's for sure. now for a look at what is coming up, here is geraud

comcast sportsnet studios. as the red and gold's hourglass turns, so are the days of 49ers. coming off one of the worst loss of the year, emerging a story speculating the future of head coach jim harbaugh. according to an espn report, the raiders are the favorites, and the new york jets are a possibility to land harbaugh in a trade during the off-season. the coach's status has been up in the air since he and the franchise stopped contract talks in late july. csn bay area.com raiders insider scott baer with more. >> reporter: it's hard to imagine a scenario where the oakland raiders trade valuable draft picks for 49er head coach jim harbaugh. that's especially true if this personnel department remains intact. because reggie mckenzie knows better than anyone that that team needs young talent that you can only get with higher round draft picks. and i can't imagine he would give up those valuable selections for a head coach. at the same time, i can't
11:43 pm
