the elevations, the higher elevations. but the lower elevations will start to turn to rain. we're seeing heavier rain in sacramento right now, heavy rain in the napa area and fairfield and santa rosa. yellows represent wipers on full. the radar footprint right now what i'm showing you will look like that for most of the night. there is nothing well organized coming through the next few hours. these bands are very moist air. so be ready to hear some of the heavier rain on the rooftops. windy conditions. i mentioned the winds, it's howling out there with gusts over 50 miles an hour. here we are, i did something here with a short range model and better resolutions, then i tie it into the long range as you'll see what i'm trying to do here. here we are at 6:00 a.m. tomorrow morning. basically the early morning commute is wet, but not as bad as this afternoon's commute. and then by tomorrow afternoon the afternoon commute tonight, it will be sprinkles, it shouldn't be too big of a deal. but now we will go to thursday morning with no rain. thursday afternoon no rain.
10:46 pm
and then as we get into friday look what shows up a whole different deal. they had a lot of cool air with a pretty good moisture cap. and this system on friday nighthas a really, really, really good moisture cap. it's not cold, but it is super warm. we're going to pull out and show you the long range model. they've had the resolutions going out poor. now we're already into saturday evening, so it has been raining a bit on saturday morning, but look at this moisture tab. that's what you'll need to look for. look at that thing, that's what you will call an atmospheric river if this transpires we'll see significant rainfall. it will last right through sunday evening, break out after that, which is a good thing. what can you see over the next five days? well today by the end of the day it makes sense with an inch of rain. by friday we are about the same place not much of a change. now watch what happens on saturday. it will come up just a little bit and a lot by sunday. so look at this, san francisco will go three times, four times the amount of rain they got
10:47 pm
today in about 24 hours. if this all transpires, basically what i just said, saturday night into sunday morning is going to go off if that will transpire. that means heavy rain certainly urban flooding. small flood advisory and heavy snow in the mountains. there it is, our storm is pretty much winding down now by 3:00 to 4:00 in the morning. by 6:00 in the morning the heavy stuff will be gone and we get a nice break as you know heather and frank that's super important. then we get hammered on saturday and sunday with a break on the backside of that, which is super. if you don't have a break on monday that will be a problem. >> all right, bill, thank you. still to come here the sharks are taking on their rivals the l.a. kings. and the a's are bridging back a former -- bringing back a former player. sports director mark ibanez is up next. we live in a pick and choose world.

10:50 pm
talking about the sharks in overtime, but just can't say enough. >> there is one thing about the team they played tonight, the l.a. kings, you do not want to get them in overtime. i mean seven victories when they go to o.t., i mean come on, frank. playing pretty top of the line hockey for themselves as of late. but back to back now losses to the kings despite that they are still on top of the pacific division. second period scoreless. kevin lebank with the dribble
10:51 pm
and skips their way into the net. 1-0. and that was it until the third period. kings are playing a situation coming up. and you can see what they will do. redirected by jeff carter, out late. get this 21 points in the last 21 games and he was not done, but they won one. 58 seconds left in overtime and their only possession of the game. they will pick up just beautifully maneuvered. and the last second it will be appearing on the thing of beauty where it is over, but you need to watch the replay as the sharks go down by the final of 2-1 picking up a point. and you know what it is the second time they lost when they have a lead going into the third period. all right it is suppose to rain most of the week get real heavy over the weekend. but believe it or not with that wet weather people are still thinking about baseball.
10:52 pm
spring training is only about five weeks away if you can believe that. along those lines the a's are making a little news. raja davis with that huge home run in the world series game seven to tie it before they finally lost to the cubs. it's a one-year deal with the a's. $6 million. he is 36 years old and despite that he was the american league leader with 43 steals to hit 12 home runs as well. that's not a bad addition, not a huge signing, but a lot of the a's fans would have liked it. but nevertheless he's an oakland a's. can you believe the mood swing with all the raider fans? a couple of weeks ago everybody is sky high going to the playoffs for the first time since 2002 and until the derek carr situation. but now they will make a little history in so long down in texas. connor cook officially will be the starter and it is the first time the super bowl era rookie quarterback will make his first start in that playoff game.
10:53 pm
he wasn't bad as he seemed very poised against denver certainly considering the circumstances. he was 14 out of 21 with 115 yards passing. and this touchdown pass to amari cooper, impressing his teammates along the way. >> he came in not playing all year doing a great job. he'll be out there getting ready to call the play in. and just like that he will call the play and kind of like the swagger. so you know i feel very confident. every day i needed to practice out there and work on his stuff getting better. really showing he was always prepared for this moment and his moment finally came. >> yeah, you never know. connor cook, you don't know what he knows, he would get them in there and why not? stranger things have certainly happened in the nfl and the team they're playing, they've got their own quarterback issues.
10:54 pm
the texans dulled out a huge salary for brock osweiler. remember he sign add four-year deal $72 million. the fans down there are not thrilled with his play. he was the starter for the first four games and eventually benched for tom savage, but they decided to go with him. so he officially will start. so it will not exactly be a battle, but golden state warriors continue to be a headliner act around here taking on the portland trail blazers tomorrow. they will keep rolling and the blazers come in. damian lillard may not play because of a sprained ankle. kevin durant his first year with the warriors and a model efficients feeling pretty comfortable. nearly now at the halfway point of the season if you can believe that. we talked a little bit today about that and how the team takes care of their stanley business sort to speak behind closed doors. >> someone we need to talk to, you know, it's not about how they come out, but about the
10:55 pm
message sometimes where they might come out the long way. we have guys that are, you know, showing you their messages that will be good and he is so emotional and passionate. it might come off as he is getting on those guys. but it will be the right way, you know, i won't even say it, but they need to come to the bench sometimes where it is whatteammates do and they need to enjoy it. >> so far it seems like he will be enjoying this time. in the meantime i mentioned they were off with some action tonight. what can you do with 1.6 seconds. take a look at what transpires into a tied game with philly. sixers have got the ball against minnesota and have a look and a listen. >> oh my goodness! this is the second play. look at the athletic ability as
10:56 pm
you can see it better on the replay right now. sixers win the game. that's a lot of activity for 1.4 seconds left and the game winning shot of robert covington. the sixers will prepare. >> that was perfection i mean really. >> that's what you would call making the best out of your time. >> yes. >> i mean you know what you're right. they don't know what they don't know to come out to have a great game. >> the way he would get thrown in there against denver, he didn't have a whole lot of time to think about it. when you consider taking it into consideration he gets thrown all over the pre-curious situation in denver. you guys are athletes. >> you didn't -- you didn't just show up, but you need need to light it up. >> from the players they were impressed, you know. >> find out on saturday. good night everyone. >> good night.
