the storm track is way off to the north. it's north of seattle. that's how far the jet stream is now. at least for now, until monday, not going to see a change, a slight cooldown as the sea breeze tries to pick up a little more. you'll probably notice the cooling a little more for monday, tuesday and wednesday. the system drops in east of the sierra, and high pressure builds in behind it. what we're going to get another taste of is those offshore winds much like we saw last week, this is going to raise the fire danger colonals for low humidity and gusty winds tuesday night into early wednesday. after this system weakens, we will see a chance of showers coming in late in the week. and temperatures dropping almost 20 to 30 degrees cooler than the temperatures we're enjoying this weekend. soak up the sunshine here the next couple days, and the 70-day degree temperatures. tomorrow morning, 40s and 50s around lunchtime. look great. lots of 70s across the board. we should see highs inland.
close to 80s in los gatt oes. let's jump ahead to your trick or treat forecast. 60s and 70s around 5:00, no worries about rain, our temperatures are going to be comfortable, mild and mainly 60s through trick or treat time. the seven-day forecast, you got the kwin the wind. the temperatures are really going to drop off. a few showers as well. maybe snow levels, close to 4,000. >> it's so beautiful today. >> thank you, rob. coming up, oakland congresswoman barbara lee takes on the food stamp challenge by eating only what you would be able to buy with food stamps for one week. pgh what does paul mccartney have in common with smokey robinson and stevie wonder?

offer. it's unclear what the cost will be or really how long it will take. the company will pick up the piano on monday. they estimate it will take at least five months to figure out what needs to be done. the company is graciously leaving a loner piano in its place. mccartney could not have been more giving or kind. they describe an unpretentious man, grateful to see where artists like marvin gaye created their music. >> i think for him, the most significant of all of the experiences here in the studio was him coming to studio a and being actually in the small little room formerly a garage, where from 1959 to 1972 all of the great mo town music was created and he was just bowled over. >> again, that was norm mcdonald reporting.

since the civil war. >> my daughter's not going to be happy. a white halloween? i don't think i ever experienced one, honestly. i've been in new york all my life. i don't remember if snowing on halloween. >> the storm is causing ripple effects at airports across the country as you can imagine. including san francisco international airport. call ahead if you're headed to the east coast. that's our advice. we thought we'd look into some fun, free things to do in the bay area. first up, this 50 foot pirate ship. it's on church drive in san jose, it spans two drive ways, complete with a crow's nest, dummy pirates and sand. it was built from scratch with the help of the whole neighborhood and took about nine weeks to build. >> my neighbors don't really have a choice to be involved. i get them involved. and a lot of neighbors have been super as far as participating and putting up with a little more noise late at night than we probably should do. >> the pirate ship is on display
