to 36 hours in affect from this cool pressure system. there really is nothing more than something that will enhance the cloud cover, enhance the onshore winds and bring temperatures down a couple degrees. now like last weekend or even earlier this week we had rain, much better weather best day of the weekend will be saturday, sunday cooler but nice. forecast highs tomorrow 72 in morgan hill, 71 gilroy, foggy in half moon bay, foggy in the mornings but it clears off, same with pacifica. i think you'll find sunshine off the coast tomorrow, especially simpson beach and those areas once the winds start to kick in say noon, 1:00. five-day forecast, then, weekend in view because your weekend is now. you've got plenty of sunshine, a few clouds and slightly cooler on sunday. it's a lot better than weekend. you guys remember that? >> we sure do. >> it was mid-60s. >> it's going to be real nice. >> thank you, bill. apple is closing in on a

deal with four major recording companies that would allow users to receive songs stored to storage and iphones wouldn't use up storage phones on their portable devices. how it would be exclusive to apple isn't clear. it's expected to be unveiled next month at the apple developers conferen the bay area -- a place with natural beauty and a forward thinking spirit. at bank of america, we've been fueling economic growth here for over a century. today we're investing in innovations that will define our future. every day, we're working to help set opportunity in motion. from financing a solar project for the milpitas school district to funding the institute at golden gate. because when you're giving, lending, and investing in more communities across the country, more opportunities happen.

mark joins us now with sports. it was a pressure packed night but a good night. >> oh, man, just another great thing about the world of sport. back from the brink the sharks absolutely had to find another
12:24 am
gear to flip it into and that they do, along with it reminded everybody as bad as that 7-3 game of the other night, it was just one game. setting the tone early physicality on this play, former shark christian ehrhoff hit with a high-sticking and the sharks take advantage. on the 5-3 advantage it is a ryane clowe in front and the sharks find themselves in a 2-0 advantage. later in the 1st patrick marley get him into the open ice, there's not many faster. he would take advantage of that, his second goal of the night. 3-0 sharks. now 3-1 in the third, critical goal here for san jose, 5-3 advantage again. dan boyle scoring. you think it may be an easy one, but vancouver will take advantage of what many call a questionable five minute ejection of jamie mcginn thrown out of the game for that and vancouver quickly takes
12:25 am
advantage. they score two late goals, but the sharks hang on to put the series at two games to one and another one-goal victory. when the sharks win, it is as it seems al by the slimmest of margin -- always by the slimmest of margins, but i'm guessing they don't care a lick about after that considering the way that debacle went in vancouver the other night. wouldn't you say, fred? >> reporter: you know what? really this was a fine game overall for the sharks. they were much quicker in their passes. they had quicker skates and special teams was spectacular, mark, three power play goals and did you see all the bodies laying out on the ice as they were doing time after time in the penalty kill? it certainly the goalie antti niemi looked more and more like the goalie that won the stanley cup last year in chicago. late in the 4th period they held off a 5-on-three advantage
12:26 am
for nearly two minutes. sharks scored their own goal in the 3rd. this was the car,' best game in nearly two weeks. >> i -- sharks' best game in nearly two weeks. >> i think we were composed and learned from last game. we stayed within our system, took a deep breath and went back after it. >> last time the five minute penalty, i don't like the call. i thought it was a good hockey hit, but found a way to win and that's all we needed. we just needed to win. >> i thought we were pretty disciplined. so if i were to comment on what i think of the penalties, i'd get a pretty big fine. so i'm going to save my money. >> reporter: not very happy after the game. sharks jamie mcginn says he expects to get suspended since that was his second misconduct call. he will probably miss game 4. logan couture left with an
12:27 am
injury, returned and is expected to play game 4 which is sunday noon right here at the tank and overall, mark, the sharks feeling much better about themselves after tonight's 4-3 win. >> i'd imagine. so have a good night, fred, and a great sports night at at&t tonight. you can call it a pitchers dual if you like. game one of the bay bridge series featured a couple teams to put it kindly a little offensively challenged hitting the ball on a regular basis being a foreign concept for both the a's and giants. kung fu panda meets his namesake. they could use that guy back in the lineup. l night's defensive hero doing it again -- last night's defensive hero doing it again, mark schierholtz, that guy playing some defense in right field. later the giant out of a jam. the a's come close to scoring. mark ellis at third, but it is a rock. conor jackson has an r.b.i. single taken away. extra innings bottom of the 10th, audrey huff with a shot
12:28 am
to right. he's got himself a game winning hit and the giants again with a walk-off win 2-1 over a's and the warriors with a great move. they have
