>> cloudy weather, the overcast was hanging out all day long. we got a few rain drops and the storm system we have been tracking is not strong enough to give us widespread rain. let's get a look at the drop lar radar and satellite, we are just getting missed by activity, we have lightning across the sierra earlier and thunderstorms to the north and off shore, we are tracking showers. that's the nature of what we have happening. upper area level of pressure off shore, spiraling in hit and miss moisture, wherever it wants. the thing we are being impacted most by is the cloud cover. we have had the low clouds moving in and at times a break of blue skies. temperatures right now, coolest here in san francisco at 59. north bay at 62. and south bay, holding on to milder air. and a bit humid with the southerly flow and 70. for tomorrow morning's forecast, we will keep the possibility of
spotty showers. it looks like it will be better than what we had for today. watch out for hit and miss activities. san francisco begins at 55, and 53 for the peninsula. and so here's the area of low pressure, it's just off shore. this thing hangs out not only through tomorrow but through saturday, in just about the same spot. so with it spinning out here, as we have been mentioned, it did not have a lot of upper level energy with it. we will have the areas of showers moving in. that's what we want to see next, timeline and how the future cast looks. and a lot of you that know about the future cast, knowing we have a winter storm coming in. this thing is covered in green, with heavier rainfall, but tomorrow morning, tsz skit is scattered in nature. by 6:00 p.m., better chance of rain from north bay to napa and down for san jose and fremont, a good chance as well. notice the orange and yellow showing up. that is the chance of an
isolated thunderstorm tomorrow afternoon for the south bay. and as we push ahead towards friday. i think in the morning hours, this will be the best bet of accumulating rainfall from the north bay down towards the south bay. rainfall totals, not a lot. i wish this was a lot higher, but it's not going to be there. to maybe close to a quarter of an inch for napa, and san francisco, and san jose, once again, may only see 800th of an inch, as we go through the micro climate forecast on thursday. it's what we talked about. a mix of sun, clouds and possibility of showers. milder area if in the south bay, san jose, stays around 70. for the peninsula, we have 62 in pacif pacifica and north bay, east bay, and for the tri-valley, we come in at 68 in napa and oakland 67. and tri valley in the upper 60s to low 70s. we keep it at this rather annoying on again, off again
showers and by sunday, peggy and also raj, we warm out and we dry out. so, we probably want to leave on the flight on saturday. >> okay. we are still taking the british airways to london. >> you are on the hook now, raj. >> did you see the fourth quarter comeback? of course you did. what now? the run of steph curry, next
a lead over the blazers. but the question remains, when is he coming back? up the corner. we turned around what was a pretty bad game for us and we had enough time to get back. >> back from an early 17-point deficit. and it started with the reigning mvp, andre iguodala. he kept the warriors in striking distance. >> it was good that we got that punch in the gut and got tested to see how we would respond. we kept fighting. >> the difference was a guy that did not enter in game one. he entered to play, and the warriors were down ten. when he left, they had the lead. >> he played 13 straight minutes. this is a guy who has been out most of the last part of the season. and didn't play much in the houston series.
so, phenomenal effort from fezzie to change the game. >> the warriors out scored the blazers 34-12 in the fourth. for a 110-99 victory. now, three days off before they play again. rather unusual said andrew bogut. >> it's really weird, i experienced it before, but we've guys that could use the rest and go to the spa and get massages and look forward to portland. >> particularly for receive occ -- for steph curry, his return date is unknown. >> it's more what the training staff tells us. is he at risk of hurting it further. if he is not and he is at 80%, 90% and they say, he can play, and he should be fine and it's, we are not risking anything, then we will let him play. >> game three is saturday night
in port lant. we could see him had saturday. well, hunter pence may have something to do with last night's win. he sent stump town coffee to the warriors. it's a portland based coffee company, nobody can confirm that the warriors drank the coffee. as for pence and the giants today, they lost in cincinnati. >> now, also, may the force be with you. today is star wars day, even president obama and the first lady got involved. this video here posted to the official white house twitter account. the first couple dancing with r 2-d 2. that is access when he comes by. it is believed to have been filmed in december, around the time the new star wars movie premiered. >> he has rhythm. >> he does. >> not so much the storm troopers. but -- >> may the nourfourth be with y. have a great evening. >> bye.
