inland tomorrow morning. you will see some drizzly conditions on the coast. for kickoff of the amgen tour, it looks a lot cooler. only in the 70s around the north bay. you see the clouds off to the west. that could be a reason why we'll see an increasing chance of mountain thundershowers later in the weekend. as we head into monday, we'll have the details coming up in the full forecast in a few minutes. >> thank you. and coming up next at 11:00, you have likely heard the ads against proposition 29 that claimed not a cent of the money raised by the cigarette tax would go to cancer treatment. that's true. but we'll show you why some analysts say that claim is about as close to false advertising as you can get. plus -- 30 designers transformed this 11,500 square foot home with all their best ideas. i got them to give us a couple we can do on a weekend and on a budget. - ( music playing ) - we know technology can make you more connected.

with facebook planning to go public this week, a lot of people are talking with how millionaires will spend their money. as chris sanchez shows us, there are some ways to get the look without being part of the ipo. >> the most beautiful homes often look the most effortless like the style and cool happen on their open but they don't. 30 san francisco decorators put their best ideas into transforming this 11,500 square foot mansion. the green couch team took the main kitchen and family room from the 1980s to 2012 without demoing a thing. the designers kept the granite in the kitchen which enspire the
glossy charcoal paint for the old beams. the cabinets went from dark to white. rather than spending $12 per square foot to replace the floor, they refinished it for a third of the price. >> you can work with the cabinets work the stone. get really amazing accent chairs. get fabulous accent pillows, artwork and all those accessories that make it look interesting and finished. >> upstairs, the lesson is pick a theme to keep all your ideas working together. in this guest suite, it is men's wear. >> it is little pops of colors with a tie and a pocket square. if you think about that with your room and a little color here and there, you can do brighter colors than you think you could. >> in the bedroom that means bright silk pillows. in the bathroom, a light avocado ceiling. >> when you have too many things, it does get busy. if you have the tightly woven
floor time. then this more organic flowing wall paper, they complement each other and don't fight. >> what home would be complete without a place to watch tv? in the media room, an inviting couch and a huge tv. where you say? it is there behind the mirror. you only see it when you want to. several of the decorators said don't be afraid to call in a decorator even if you can't afford to do the whole job. they can give you a little guidance on where to spend money and where to splurge. >> to see the creativity come through is quiteit amazing. i see it from start to finish. it is great to see how the before looked and then see what the designers go through. and creating such a beautiful space. and the time and the effort and the creativity. it is very enspirg. >> whether you're looking for the kind of drama on display in the dining room or better ways to use tiny spaces like your laundry room. you may find inspiration in one of the room of the san francisco decorator's show case. in the process, raise money for
diamondbacks. matt cain almost single handedly put an end to the streak. he allowed only one earned run in his start this evening against the diamondbacks. then at the plate, he brought in two. a two-run double right here for matt cain. put the giants up 4-1. during the game, the diamondbacks having a little fun with the giant zoo animals. i think brandon was more amused by this. watch him run. i think i'll go with brandon on the left. he knows how to slide. i don't know if that baby giraffe can do as much. two doubles for him. the giants win 5-2. >> grinding things out. things aren't going your way, find ways to make it work. or you know, running the bases hard or trying to get hits or whatever. that's the nice part about being in the national league. you feel like you can benefit in different ways. whether it is getting the bunt down or doing different thing.
you love to be able to contribute when you have a chance at the plate. >> matt cain, two for three on the night. brandon mccarthy making his first start since may 2nd. no signs of rest. he struck out the heart of the tigers' order. miguel cabrera, prince fielder and delmon young. he tied the career high with ten strikeouts. cliff pennington slices this one and cal comes around to score. the as go up 2-0. then brian fuentes comes around to score. the a's win it 3-1. >> a good day. i felt like i was in command from the get-go. i was able to stay with the game plan. i wanted to execute. it was probably the highest percentage of pitch i've executed. in big counts, big situations, i was able to do what i needed to do. and it just continued. >> he has a game plan every time he goes out there. he executed today.
when pitchers are executing their game plan, the balls are on the corners, the balls are down. sometime you're going to stop good hitters, too. >>. >> reporter: it would be a great mother's day in oakland if you care to go. barry zito and jeff saund letters face off in arizona. the two lefties. it will be a good day for baseball. happy mother's day to you. >> thank you very much. right now we'll check with rob on the weather for mother's day, perhaps. >> it looks pretty good. a little bit cooler as we wrap up the week and we have a bit of a healthier sea breeze. pushing in some low clouds across the bay by tomorrow morning. still low 63 in livermore. we'll see a stronger sea breeze. no more 90s in the forecast. maybe close to 80. in the warmest spots storm. you can see the winds. that cooler marine air pushing all way into solano county. the interesting part of the forecast, it will be what happens with this upper level
low. it will track across northern california into monday. if that mid level moisture, you can see the ban of clouds here rides off to the north of us. i think out toward areas north of sonoma county, mendocino county and perhaps the sierra tomorrow. we'll have to watch out for a slight rick of afternoon thunder. for the bay area, we'll see the win coming in off the ocean. it will be cool at times. i think we'll see a little sun in between the clouds during the afternoon. you can see in the futurecast. 1:00 tomorrow afternoon. a few of the high clouds passing on by and maybe some brief sunshine. watch what happens by this time tomorrow night. we'll see the low clouds fill in and punch inland. as that marine layer continues to deepen tomorrow night into monday, very good bet that we'll see some drizzle on the coast as we go into, especially tomorrow night and monday and maybe for tomorrow morning, too. as you wake up and take mom out to brunch. you may find some misty skies and countries around the peninsula and coast. a better bet of seeing that as we head into monday morning.
temperature tomorrow no, where near the 90s. we're talking low 80s around san jose. mostly sunny 70s around continuer bay, including toward the tri-valley. you can see the numbers. livermore and pleasanton down from 90. about 80 tomorrow. actually pretty comfortable. a little breezy at times as we go through the afternoon with some partly cloudy skies. out on the coast we'll see number in the low 60s. a little chilly at times. we hope we'll get that midday break for sunshine. then low clouds surging in for monday. the start of the week will be wrapping up the weekend with the cooling temperatures, stronger sea breeze. then tuesday and wednesday, if you like warm he weather, you'll like the middle part of the week. we'll see the warm-up that will take the temperature and trending cooler. thursday into friday and the pattern, can't really make up its mind. going back and forth every two to three days. not too hot. not too cold. if you don't like it, wait a day or two. >> the blast from the past on
road work. that is about $60 per resident, and it is the most of any city in the study. but san francisco is ranked below average in terms of the condition of its roads. san francisco has more than twice the number of illegal dumping incidents than the survey average. the big issue on the june state ballot is proposition 29. the tobacco tax. it would raise taxes by a dollar per pack of cigarettes. the ads are confusing so we thought we would check the facts for you. this ad against prop 29 paid almost entirely by the tobacco industry says, quote, not one penny goes to new funding for cancer treatment. that is true. most analysts say it is deceiving. the tax dollars raised on cigarettes would not go to cancer treatment but rather to cancer research. the ad in favor of prop 29 is paid for almost entirely by the american cancer society and the lance armstrong foundation. it claims the prop 29 will keep thousands of children from getting addicted to tobacco.
that is a claim, of course, that is impossible to prove. we'll have more on prop 29 tomorrow night at 11:00 including the money trail. you might be surprised how much money phillip morris and r.j. reynolds are spending to try to defeat prop 29. just days before facebook is set to go public, a co-founder is creating a little controversy. eduardo is renouncing his american citizenship and becoming a citizen of singapore. a move that will significantly reduce his taxes in the united states. that news has outraged facebook users across this country. facebook is valued at nearly $100 billion. the l.a. time said his stake in the company is about 4% so do the math on that. and about $4 billion give or take a few. a lot. thanks for joining us for the bay area at 11:00.
