giants making a push for the post-season and don't have the infrastructure for the tailgating the raiders fans like. those three football stadiums are the best options. >> a lot of stadiums that are joint baseball stadiums left everyone unhappy. >> exactly. >> the nfl players do not like playing on it it. >> thank you. new at 6:00, right now crews are trying to clean up an intersection in san francisco, a car slammed into a fire hiydran after 4:00. police believe the car is stolen and they arrested someone that ran from the car after the crash. the traffic signals were impacted causing a major backup. shifting gears to thets of area were in for a windy and chilly night. >> here is drew tuma. >> the winds are generally light across the region but that is going to change over the next 12 hours. later on tonight at midnight, a wind advisory will go into

is that there is nothing abnormal about the fires in california or the rising sea level or all the other incidents of climate change. >> the president did say himself during the tour it did not change his perspective on climate change. the campfire killed 86 people and destroyed nearly 14,000 homes. new details coming up about the man accused of stabbing his tender date. they have been trying to get him mental health help. >> crews are putting the final touches on times square for new years.

here on abc 7. dick clark's new years rocking eve starts at 11:30 monday night. it will be raining in new york city for new years eve. here for us, it will be windy and cold out there tomorrow night. live doppler 7 right now, we enjoyed lots of sunshine earlier today. equally as clear tonight so we are dry on live doppler seven. the picture now, a live look and great visibility but that camera is shaking going back and forth as the winds are on the rise tonight and will continue to increase over the next 12 hours. winds close to the coast are the strongest and you can see the gust in san francisco. 35 miles an hour, 21 in san carlos and elsewhere away from the coast, not nearly as strong but that will change overnight. temperature-wise. we have fallen back into the 40s and 50s, 54 that current number in santa rosa down to 52 in san francisco with the breeze and 49
fairfield and livermore at about 51. overnight tonight, clear skies, plenty of stars out there, with that breeze on the rise, what it helps to do is keep the atmosphere mixed-up so that means we don't get as chilly tonight as we had been in previous nights. still 30s and 40s is cold in the next 12 hours. that wind advisory will go intofect tonight admit night lasting through tuesday morning and the areas shaded in yellow on your screen are hills across the bay area and will feature the strongest wind gust on monday. so monday, it's really bright day, lots of sunshine but the wind will keep temperatures in the 50s for afternoon highs. so let's take a closer look at the wind speeds. future tracker wind gust as we get you into tomorrow morning, 7:00 in the morning those winds are racing out of the north 20 to 30 miles an hour. throughout the day they may weaken slightly during the daylight hours but ramp up once again and by 7:00 in the evening
on monday, likely will see gusts well over 30 miles an hour at times. so the new years eve forecast is dry. we have clear skies overnight into new yeerar's day but the winds will be 20 to 35 miles an hour. while your air temperature will be in the 40s, you can forget these numbers because you want to remember what the windchill will look like or what it will feel like thanks to the north wind on the gusty side. so windchills as we say hello to 2019, look at the numbers. it will feel like the 30s across the entire region. you want to have the winter jacket, several layers because it will be a chilly end to 2018 and chilly start to new year's day. here is the forecast, the next seven days for you, tomorrow it's about the winds on new years eve for the wind advisory in effect. chilly overnight into new year's day. the winds will relax midday tuesday so with a calm finish that ushers in cold mornings
wednesday and thursday and dry on friday but the next chance of any wet weather will come next weekend on saturday with a storm level one on the storm impact scale. the 49ers and raiders wrapped up the 2018 season on the road with the chance to alter the play-off picture for their opponents, each team played the division leaders and for the 49ers that meant a visit to the coliseum and an l.a. win means the rams secure first round buy. first round did not go well as kyle fumbled the ball away. jared goff on the next drive connected with brandin cooks on a three-yard score. on the very next drive, nick mullins with the first interception of the game on to corey littleton. c.j. anderson, remember him? he was on the raiders three weeks ago and got the touchdown on the following drive after that. second quarter not any better for the 49ers. he picked off by littleton
again. littleton picked off 19 yards. 49ers had four turnovers in the first half. here is the season highlight. george says the nfl single season record for most receiving yards on this 43-yard touchdown is 1,377 yards for kittle. congratulations. >> it hasn't really hit me but definitely exciting and i mean, definitely wasn't just me. three quarterbacks throw me the ball and the o line ups and downs throughout the year and a credit to our team to push and grind the whole year no matter what happened. definitely would have really enjoyed a win today but this definitely makes it a little bit better. >> the raiders also had turnover troubles against the afc leading chiefs. four turnovers. that included derek carr's first pick since week five. daniel took this 54 yards. the other way. hold up, look at jared cook.
he quit on the route. the two have a discussion so we have to find out what happened on that play. next possession, carr gets stripped by justin houston. carr threw for 185 yards and two picks and that led to this four-yard touchdown. in the third quarter patrick mahomes became the third quarterback in nfl history to throw 50 or more touchdowns in a single season. tom brady and peyton manning being the other two, 89 yards here to demarcus who had all kinds of room to run into the end zone backward so the chiefs then added on more. tyreek hill with the touchdown and a 15-yard early in the fourth. the chiefs secure the top spot in the afc that comes with a buy and home field advantage as they win 35-3. >> nothing wrong with the effort. i'll take responsibility for the loss. obviously, we have a lot of work to do. i really like this football team and i like the way we finished. today was not a good note but
great group of guys that laid quite a foundation that we can build on. >> so the arizona cardinals have the number one pick in the 2019 draft followed by the 49ers due to the 4-12 record and the jets and raiders also at 4-12 and bucks round out the top five as far as draft order. the vikings lost to the bears so if the eagles beat washington, they are in. nick foles threw two touchdown passes and win 24-0 and sneak into the final wild card spot. the steelers need to win and have the ravins lose. pittsburgh survivors thanks to the three field goals. this is his first game with the steelers, big sigh of relief there. 16 of 13 pittsburgh but they still need help from the browns. first we'll flash back to week 17 of last season. the ravins beat the bengals in the playoffs but on fourth and 12 with under a minute left, andy dolton for the game winner.
49 yards. so they eliminated the ravins in the final minute of the season. back to today against the browns, the steelers watching from the field. cleveland down two and baker mayfield is picked. the ravins survive. no deja vu for them. they will go to the playoffs. pittsburgh is essentially out. the only way the steelers can make it in is if the colts, titans game ends in a tie. that's unlikely. a lot to be decided. >> always hope. >> yeah. >> for a tie. >> i don't think there is a chance, right? >> no. [ laughter ] >> all right. mindy, thank you. the weekend after christmas is a big one at the box office. we'll take a
tonight on abc 7 news at 11:00 a new year means new laws from the foods you eat. thing wills for californians in 2019 and will break down big ones. and is london calling next season for the raiders? we spoke to a former executive about the likelihood of the not only wonbolts from the bay a but the north american continent. >> i'm surprised you didn't break out in the clash song. maybe after the show. all right. aqua man maintained his role
