in fact high pressure remains in control of our weather. we've got this trough that started to work its way up under this high pressure. you can see the cloud cover really extensive with that this is going to bring some showers in as we head towards wednesday. i think the better chance of rain will come in wednesday afternoon and heeng. and we may even get a couple of rumbles with this thing as it moves over. and thursday and friday things start to clear out. we'll heat up the next couple of days, close to 90 degrees tomorrow for san jose. wednesday there is a the chance of showers i was telling you about. by thursday and friday, temperatures really start to come down. even for the east bay valleys, you'll be this the mid-90s for the next couple of days. expecting temperatures to cool off. even in san francisco, tomorrow and tuesday expecting temperatures near 80 degrees. and in the 60s by friday. i want to leave you with. this we've been talking about it all weekend. the chance of more showers. not only for wednesday, but next week. and another stronger system could move through saturday afternoon and evening. another chance of some much needed rain.
well, everybody loves a small town football team. and it has special meaning this season in one tune any town in north dakota. for years there were not enough kids there to support a high school football team at all. >> but people missed the game. now after almost 30 years, they're celebrating the return of the comets. nbc's mark potter has their story. >> the comets! >> reporter: homecoming day in alexander, north dakota. and the high school football comets are on the field after a very long absence. it's been decades since alexander had its own team. cheering them on is leslie beaver, the school superintendent, who fought hard to bring football back to the community. >> they have something that they
haven't -- that they've been starved of for 27 years. so you can feel that energy and that pride. >> reporter: football ended in alexander in the late 1980s when small farms collapsed, and there weren't enough kids for a team. but seven years ago an oil boom began, attracting new families. and this year the comets are back. there are only 13 players, but it's enough for a six-man football league. >> so how are they looking today? >> looking pretty sharp today, actually. miles from where we were a few weeks ago. >> reporter: a few weeks ago, many of these boys had never even played football. and still have a long way to go. but at a pregame rally, it's clear the whole town loves them. on game day, the weather turned bad. after very heavy rains, it's now cold and windy. but the town still turned out. and they couldn't be more enthusiastic, even though the comets are having a tough day
against a more experienced team. >> oh, gosh, we're loud. and usually the loudest team out there, even if we are losing. >> reporter: for her son, number 25, this team is really important. >> i used to be a bad kid. and football saved my life. i owe everything i have to football. >> reporter: one more reason no one really cares about the lopsided score. >> the fact that they're losing big, does that really matter? >> that don't bother me. >> reporter: >> reporter: a source of pride for everyone here, especially the boys who are now a team. they are the alexander comets. >> one, two, three, comets! >> reporter: mark potter, nbc news, alexander, north dakota. >> so enthusiastic. >> go comets! >> go comets! >> go comets! >> go get it. all right. we'll be right back. ticket. you could be 15-million
purchased in the bay area worth $15 million. >> don't throw that away last night's superlotto plus winner still has not come forward with that ticket. it was sold at a safeway in san jose. the ticket was sold here at the safeway on branham lane near branham high school. these are the wing digits. they are 37, 34, 28, 33, 21. the mega number is 17. i feel like i should be standing next to that ping-pong thing, right? so what would you do if you won the big prize? we asked several safeway shoppers. >> to be honest, we would probably keep very little to ourselves and probably help those around the world that really are suffering. because there are so many people. especially in south carolina right now there are so many people that are suffering. >> now, of course she is referring to the massive flooding in south carolina. the owner of the safeway store will get a $75,000 bonus for selling the winning ticket.
a very nice thought there. a good way to think about winning all that money in the lottery. that was really nice. very nice. >> sharing with people who need it. >> a hot day tomorrow. temperatures inland back into the 90s for some of us. san francisco will see a warm day as well. temperatures near 80 degrees. a chance of rain by wednesday. not going to be much. but hey, enough to get the ground wet. the east bay valleys tomorrow back into the mid-90s. i think we'll all see showers by wednesday. kind of like what we saw on october 1. just enough to get the ground wet. bigger system next weekend. >> thank you for joining us. have a great night and a great week. >> you have a greet week ahead. >> see you.
faith. by definition, it is something that is felt with strong conviction without tangible evidence of its existence. many claim to have it, but how do we attain it? it can't be held. it can't be sold. but it can be passed down. faith is invaluable to those who feel it. how it is that this belief can unite us regardless of our differences? it's because of conviction, that feeling inside that links so many. from the far corners of the earth to the closest reaches of our neighborhoods, faith is all around us. >> everything hangs in the balance now.
