our temperatures went down a little bit. tfrs the perfect night to be partying out in san jose celebrating the sharks. >> looking toward that sunday game in san jose. weather forecast that are on sunday. low 80s, pre-game. finding upper 50s and low 60s. we do have some patchy fog in san francisco. that will be making a comeback for tomorrow morning. it does not look like the fog will be super thick but definitely expect some of that fog for the morning hours. south bay also temperatures in the low 50s. as we get a look at the microclimate forecast, the end of the workweek for a lot of us. sang
san jose, 76. for san francisco, temps in the mid-60s. for the north bay, east bay and tri-valley, another comfortable day. for the east bay anywhere from 70 in oakland to walnut creek in 78. the main thing that will help to continue to keep temperatures so nice for tomorrow, this area of low pressure sitting up toward seattle. as that moves off to the north and also the east, we have some mild weather your friday forecast. it will also pick up the winds 10 to 15 miles an hour. tomorrow is the last day of this great weather we've had most recently. we'll see this area of high pressure build in by saturday and sunday. you probably seen the results of that already on the scrolling seven-day forecast at the bottom of the screen. it will increase temperatures anywhere from 10 to 15 degrees. let's focus in more on that. you'll see where we will go in terms of our temperatures.
for the south bay, 77 for the average on friday. again, looking good. by saturday, 83 degrees. on sunday's forecast we pop up to 87. for san francisco, it stays in the 60s through saturday. for the tri-valley we'll have 78 on friday and a 10-degree jump by sunday's forecast and 88. sunny and warm into the upcoming weekend which may have you thinking about any kind of rain prospects. what's happening with el nino. all signs continue to point toward el nino fading throughout the rest of this month. that will force the storm track off to the north. drought impacts return. next thing we're really looking ahead towards 75% chance of la nina developing. the best guess right now from long range models is not really great one. it could mean below or above average rain. i know it's kind of murky there.
we'll be tracking closely over the next couple of months and hopefully we'll have a better idea of that. >> thank you. hopefully that ice is okay sunday night at the shark tank for the sharks. not just the sharks making headlines. for the first time in six months, we're hearing from collin kaepernick. we wanted the 49ers to trade him. here he is still in santa clara. >> i don't think it's been odd or awkward situation. that was a business aspect of football. at this point, i'm here. i'm excited to be with chip and these coaches. the offense has been amazing. i'm excited to be back on the field with them. it was a great feeling to be out there this week. >> okay. not awkward at all. he is competing for the starting quarterback role. still to come, we're going to go back out to pittsburgh. >> so much excitement. are cities making money on

only covers half of its costs. taxpayers eat the rest. use the map on your website, nbcbayarea.com. while you're there, you can leave us a tip on our response page or you can call us at 888-996-tips. >> thank you, chris. it's delay but it's not a cancellation. leaders are confirming despite a few snags, it will soon arrive in san jose. the flights were due to arrive last month. today the company still has plans to establish san jose to shanghai service but not until september. the company is not saying what led to that delay. : let's get back to our story of the night. we're talking sharks hockey.
how much do we need? >> $768 per person. that's the cheapest seat for your type of seat. sharks tickets more expensive than warriors tickets. collin joins us from the ice. i think it will be a ticket well worth spending money on. >> yeah, guys. i'm still trying to catch my breath after that one. with all of pittsburgh expecting to party into friday morning, the sharks silence the field and they're sending the series back to san jose. let's get straight to the
highlights. three minutes in, pair of goals. how about logan couture on the redirect in front. a quick 2-0 lead. logan ties with three points from the first period of the n stanley cup final game. point blank range. 44 saves for jones and for good measure. his first of the series. 4-2, sharks. it's heading back to san jose for game 6. >> we needed some big game performances from our key guys. jones is one of those guys. he was fantastic and gave us a chance in a tough environment. we got some big games from some
other people too. we found way to stay alive and bring it back to san jose. >> coming up at 11:00, we'll have reaction from the locker room. it's much more fun to interview them after a win like this. >> much better move. >> live in pittsburgh. back to you. go get those tickets. those are cheap for you. >> just keep driving. >> thanks for joining us. see you at 11:00. >> bye. 1-800-688-6621 abercap.com
