playing, which is why he is really looking forward to next season. >> we look forward to entertaining all of california with very exciting high level professional hockey. >> reporter: today the american hockey league announced the formation of a pacific division. five minor league teams will settle in california. >> score! >> reporter: which includes a cross-country move for the wooster sharks. >> invest in our people our staff, the vendors, ushers and so on and add to the positive economic benefit of the arena to downtown san jose. >> reporter: the minor league sharks will get a new name. but the players will have the same job. be ready for a call from the big leagues. >> it's just great to see more games happen right up the street. >> reporter: the gm at the brit in san jose not far from the sap center. >> i like to say that we're good for two people or 200 people. >> reporter: but he is hoping the next joe pavelski or thornton will be able to draw 200. a dream alex also shares. >> i'm excited. i think we're going to do pretty well.
6:45 pm
>> reporter: a minor league game will cost you 30 or $40 compared to the hundreds you could spend going to a sharks game. reporting live tonight in san jose michelle roberts, nbc bay area news. >> thank you, mishlg. so who is watching you on that baby monitor? disconcerting discovery for anyone who has a security camera in their home. a houston nanny says a man hacked into a baby monitor and made comments while she was changing the little girl's diaper. the nanny says she figured out the voice was coming through the security camera set up in the 1-year-old's bedroom. >> someone talking on the camera monitor. and i was like hmm, maybe -- maybe mys bes are maybe playing a trick on me or something. >> the nanny did the right thing. she pulled the plug on the camera and called police. they are investigating, but they're saying it's possible someone hacked into the family's wifi system and could see what was going on inside the home, and most importantly that little
6:46 pm
girl's bedroom. >> that's very scary. jeff ranieri back with us now. it's like a broken record. talk about the sunshine i guess. >> imagine me telling the same story all this month. without any kind of rainfall. you know it probably left you scratching your head here. a lot today going is it april outside? is it may? because the temperatures sure felt like it. the sky conditions look like it. and we are clear yet again. you can see in the satellite radar picture. there is some moisture way off to the south. san diego is the lucky ones right now, getting a little bit of rainfall. but it's even not that much at this point. it's not a classic winter storm system. so a lot of california just continues to be under this clearing pattern. get you outside right now to the sky camera network. temperatures in the upper 50s to low 60s right now. light jacket. might need that. for tomorrow morning, certainly some sort of jacket to start off will definitely be the case. you can see the north bay will average 40 degrees. 42 in the east bay. and back here for the south bay, 45. the other thing of note i don't think we're going to start off totally clear. we're going to have the areas of
6:47 pm
patchy fog that will affect everyone from the north bay down to the south bay. so the weather pattern. as we have been alluding to is just drought cruel for january. we should have some sort of rainfall. but we are stuck in the middle. stuck in the middle of what? stuck in the middle of two different storm tracks. we have the main storm track way off to the north. and then we have the southern branch of the jet stream with some of the rainfall in southern california. so there is the two things we are stuck in between. high pressure is acting like a big shield across california. and i don't really see this thing moving until maybe february sixth, seventh or eighth. and that really is the next indication of maybe some rainfall coming our way. so until then we just got to sit back and enjoy this great weather while we're in a drought. you know we can't do anything about it. we can't push the rainfall here. you can see 69 degrees expected in san jose. 70 for morgan hill. it will be even be mild for this time of the year. pacifica with 67. palo alto up to 6. downtown san francisco, also the marina from 56 to 68 degrees. let's take you to the north bay,
6:48 pm
east bay and tri-valley. another day with a slightly warmer wind up into marin, napa and sonoma counties. 72 in santa rosa. for the east bay, 67 in oakland. and a thing of note for the tri-valley is danville. yes, we do expect you to push up into the 70 and sunny. but livermore likely will be cooler again for tomorrow. with the cold air start, sometimes the cold air gets trapped in the valley back there and it makes it harder for the temperatures to warm up. so it will be a few degrees down there from danville temperature at 70. so the overall weekend forecast does have the best weather on saturday. upper 60s to low and mid-70s. 71 in the south bay. 71 in the peninsula. 74 for the north bay. by sunday we get cooling in here and temperatures from the 60s. once again, next possibility of any kind of rainfall. we are tracking it for you. looks like the storm track may break down by february 7th through the ninth for possibly some rainfall. and rain or shine, i'll be here to track even when something is happening. >> there is always something
6:49 pm
happening. >> i know. >> thanks a lot. >> up next i think this is the sixth time we've done this in recent years. we're going to san mateo to the hometown of tom brady. another super bowl for the peninsula star. we'll check in and hear from brady today from arizona as we go live to the site of the big game. geraud moncure and dave seinfeld man join us next. what's that thing? i moved our old security system out here to see if it could monitor the front yard. why don't you switch to xfinity home? i get live video monitoring and 24/7 professional monitoring that i can arm and disarm from anywhere. hear ye! the awkward teenage one has arrived!!!! don't be old fashioned. xfinity customers add xfinity home for $29.95 a month for 12 months. plus for a limited time, get a free security camera call 1800 xfinity or visit comcast.com/xfinityhome.

and want to take you inside. here is a live look at the phoenix stadium in arizona. the super bowl game and halftime show now just three days away. headliner katy perry posed for
6:52 pm
pictures holding a football to promote her halftime show. vegas oddsmaker are making bets. you can gamble on what she'll wear and even her hair color. one thing for sure she is going to make her roar. >> my entrance and exit are very spectacular. never been done before. and it's going to be a great show. >> the key is she is going to make you roar. wait until you find out what she is doing. promising no wardrobe malfunctions. she says when the show is over, she wants people talking about her music. >> you excited for katy perry? >> i like katy perry. >> it's going to be fun. the only thing that could surpass the super bowl right now would be some warriors news. >> oh. >> yeah? some all star news geraud moncure? >> surprisingly there is more great warriors news. no just kidding. as expected slash brother klay thompson named to the western conference all star team this afternoon.
6:53 pm
the only question left to answer will head coach steve kerr have the guts to start him now? thompson's addition marks the first time since the 1992-'93 season. the dubs have had multiple all stars. tim hardaway were selected over two decades ago. thompson is averaging career numbers in points her game and free throw percentage and much more. james harden also made the squad and may get the start if thompson doesn't get the nod from coach kerr. no big surprises on this list from a loaded western conference. all right. of course sunday in glendale arizona, there will be what they're playing for, the vince lombardi trophy. seattle trying to win back-to-back titles. the pats looking for a fourth championship in the brady-belichick era. dave feldman will be watching super bowl xlix up close and personal, and joins us now live from phoenix with the latest. felty, how are you doing? >> i'm doing well geraud
6:54 pm
thanks very much. the patriots played in the last super bowl that was held here in the phoenix glendale area that was 2008. and we all remember they lost to the new york giants. david tyree had that spectacular catch. this year they're one-point favorites over the seattle seahawks. and everyone is wondering what is the x factor. for that answer, here is mindi bach. >> i think if we move in together and we are flowing together, that's x factor. the way we commute, the way we play with confidence and communication breeds confidence throughout the whole defense, that's it. we don't need to be anything else than who we are. because that's very special in its own right. >> beast mode, you know. i don't know. he's the x tractor every game. >> you never know which play is going to be the most important one of the game. you run them and obviously you look back at the end and go man, if we had made that one play it could have been different. >> reporter: for veteran players who have competed on the game's biggest stage, that x factor is somewhat more intangible.
6:55 pm
>> the team that handles the chaos the best. the super bowl is chaos this week, you know. all the media requirements and family and whatever. the team that handles that the best. >> to me it's about extreme focus. and i think the most profound statement i ever heard from a head coach was from bill walsh after we won the nfc championship game in chicago, my rookie season, and he said to us after the game we're all hooting and hollering, we're going to the super bowl. he said men, you're playing an away game against the cincinnati bengals in miami. if you start focusing on super bowl you lose track of what got you here, and that's playing great football. >> mindi bach, nbc bay area. >> all right, mindi, thanks. of course tickets are a premium. lowest face value $800.
6:56 pm
some guy recently on ebay offered four tickets on the 30 or 40 yard line for $55,000. roughly 13,000 a ticket. geraud, i'll leave you with this one fun fact. in the previous 48 super bowls, obviously 48 pregame tosses 48 heads and 48 tails. no advantage for the opening kickoff. >> very good. that's a bet also. for heads or tails. it will be really interesting to see how that turns out. thank you very much, my man. look forward to hearing from you again tomorrow at super bowl xlix draws closer. all right. finally, 20 years ago, xlixers won super bowl xxix with joe montana at quarterback. today tom brady's facebook page displayed this photo of him dressed up as his childhood idol for halloween in 1983. brady has three lombardi
6:57 pm
trophies, just shy of joe cool's collection of four. of course, that could change on sunday. raj, jesse, i'm getting pumped up. >> jessica is fired up. >> i got to go get the chips. that's all i know. >> she has to get the menu set. >> that's what i worry about. >> thanks. well for a full half hour of bay are sports coverage watch comcast sportsnet bay area tonight at 10:30. at 11:00, one of the most valuable companies in the world, and it could help one local community strike it rich. we'll explain the connection to apple's new headquarters. that's tonight at 11:00 after the finale of "parenthood". >> a little rain there behind feldy. >> they do have some tropical moisture moving overhead. the good news sits going to clear out by super bowl sunday. i think the only thing left on super bowl sunday will be a little bit of morning fog there in arizona. then they'll clear out by the afternoon. back here at home for any kind of big-time parties, no rainfall for us. dry and very comfortable. >> you can take the tv outside. >> yeah. good for those snacks.
