6:47 pm
there as you know that is typical for this time of year when you get a storm sitting off of the coast and it makes its way to the plays. the fog out there right now, you see it off of the coast. that's coastal fog and around tomorrow morning and around again tomorrow evening. and it will be around again on wednesday and thursday. it will stick around. fog is back. that's all i had to say. forecast highs for the next couple of days, it will warm up in the low 80s and the high pressure stays put and forget the rain and don't forget your allergy pills because you will notice that. here is the forecast for the bay. fog in the morning and in the afternoon the sun comes out and call it partly cloudy and high and lunchtime in the mid-60s and by the end of the day partly cloudy and 68 degrees in san francisco. 77 in napa. the forecast warmer than today

6:51 pm
6:52 pm
6:53 pm
mark is here with sports. the warriors playing the blazers tonight. >> a lot going on in portland in the last 20 minutes. we have great news if you are a warrior fan and that means steph curry will return to the court. we have video of steph curry before tonight. that is him entering the arena and this is steph curry going through his pregame ritual. like i said within the last hour and last 40 minutes and from everything we are hearing he looked good and went through with no problems and steve kerr as his usual talked to the media about his availability tonight. >> he played a good 3 on 3 yesterday and came out of it feeling decent this morning. he is going to get treatment and we will talk to our doctors and our medical people and make a decision this afternoon and go from there.
6:54 pm
all right. so the report up there is that they are not worried at all about his knee. obviously his ankle. they are worried about his condition. the last three weeks he has only played about a little over half of basketball and readjusting to the warriors flow. he might play as much as 15 minutes tonight and what an eventful day for steph curry. he has found out as has all basketball fans he will be named the league's mvp for the second consecutive year and the first warrior to win it in back- to-back years. the official announcement will come tomorrow. the nba makes it a mystery as to when they will announce the mv p award and the only question is whether it is unanimously given to steph curry that led the warriors to that record 73 wins.
6:55 pm
he was also the league's leading scorer at 30 a game. the sharks, let's not forget about them. they are in action, in the first intermission and so far in this closeout game, they could eliminate the predators and going well in nashville. as we roll the video. young chris tourney, 9 minutes and 55 seconds nailing the shots and the sharks are leading 1-0. they don't hang on that long, in fact a couple of minutes later and the shark go at it again. the nice play, a turnover by the predators leads to another goal by the youngster chris tourney. 2-0 lead and nashville has scored in the first intermission and the sharks in control of the game. basically dominating the ice and the score is just 2-1. obviously anybody's game at this point. it is official. official time to worry about not only the a's as a team but
6:56 pm
their ace, sony gray, 3rd consecutive game and absolutely lit up. a lot of questions about a's pitching before the season started. he didn't look like one of the questions as the a's at fenway park boston get off to a 4-1 lead and chris davis going deep with sony gray you are thinking things are good and a 6th run 4th inning by the red sox, jackie bradley, jr. with a single and 4-1 lead and they just keep adding on. dustin pedroia with a base hit to center field makes it a 6-4 game and the line on sonny gray gave up 8 hits and 7 runs, disgust add couple of a's fans making the trip to fenway park and you see bob melvin to get sonny gray whose er ais 6.0. that's well over what he does. so some concerns for the a's but things looking pretty good for the sharks and on the
