10:51 pm
fog is the story for thursday. friday is transition day with a few more clouds. and then by saturday looking at increasing clouds. and by sunday some sprinkles. again not a big deal. but enough to mix-up the atmosphere and sort of change the stagnant weather pattern which has been giving us this very dense fog. these above average temperatures. san jose set a record at 70 for day-time high for this time of year. tomorrow 71. 70 in fremont. the five day forecast you will see it right here. a little bit of rain on sunday. that will be go ahead. saturday is your best day on the weekend. fog will be a player the next couple of mornings. tomorrow morning should be the worst of it. >> thank you, bill. >> a window into the past. some san francisco students open a 100-year-old time capsule. what they found once the contents of that box were revealed.
