you see the clouds out here. the system will be here starting tomorrow, but really the chance of showers don't show up until thursday. i will show that you on the model. so here is the heat in the valley right now. you see the cool marine breeze represented by the green. a live camera shot. you can kind of see the fog now below sutro tower. such a unique angle because you're facing more -- kind of a little bit east-northeast, because there's diablo. you're not due east yet, but you're pretty close. but that's an interesting look because you're looking down toward south city, looking across towards hayward and those areas. so the forecast for tomorrow, cooler than today because of the cloud cover. fog at the coast. and then temperatures tomorrow, you are going to see them warm into the 70s, 60s and 70s around the bay with a few low 80s. a cooler day tomorrow for sure. and then that chance of showers
shows up. so mary's wednesday morning, tomorrow morning. there's the clouds for tomorrow afternoon. and then here comes this guy, and boom. 9:00 a.m. a thursday morning. that's real wet right there. that's a quarter of an inch up around guerneville and up around the bo day ga bay area. you see it tail off. when that slides through, that's trace amounts no, big deal for us, but cloudy. so that's your thursday. friday it starts to clear out. look at the mountains. the mountains keep going with a few showers involved. even continued unsettled north of here. so an unusual -- not out of the question to get a few sprinkles this time of year but certainly an unusual pattern for this time of year. you see over next seven days, almost an inch and a half of rain up at crescent city. that is significant. that will help fire danger. it will prolong -- or not prolong with you will delay the fire season a little longer for the folks in the north bay. here's the cooler forecast highs than we talked about. 77 san jose, 81 morgan hill,
then the five-day forecast looks like that. i hope it rains. i think most of the rain will be north of san rafael. i hope i get a little at my house, because it would be nice. the real story with this is just cooler. as we head towards the weekend as you see temperatures begin to level off back into the upper 70s. >> bill, thank you. >> thanks, bill. well, the warriors were practicing today, back incleveland. they were preparing for game three of the nba finals tomorrow night. mark will have that and all of sports coming up next.
chase. helping you master what's now and what's next. warriors back in cleveland getting ready for game three. a possible chance at making history going 16-0 in the playoffs. >> i tell you what, tomorrow night is the championship if the warriors can win it. i've been back there. >> you said it's just so loud. >> this is maybe not popular to say here, but it's every bit as loud as oracle. i've been there the last couple of years. if the warriors can win that game, just stem the tide a little bit and make it happen, this thing is over and out. the odds makers have the warriors at three-and-a-half point favorites, which is pretty good considering they're playing out on the road. there is the warrior group practicing today in cleveland. made it safe and sound there.
and kind of interesting to note in the upcoming interview you are about to here, look at the different body language, the energy level as steph curry, then lebron james assess the current situation, both teams. >> we're all locked in and focused and playing aggressive, knowing that whoever has the ball, make a play, just try to keep it simple. something good is going to happen. you are going to either make a play for yourself or somebody else. at the end of the day we all after role. we all have an opportunity. we all can really play at an extremely high level. >> i can get my guys ready, get myself ready, but you hate to continue to put yourself in these positions, but at the end of the date's still just basketball, man. now it's getting to be more comfortable because it's just a game. i prepare myself. i'm going to go out and do my job and live with the results. >> anybody who thinks that
lebron thinks it's just a game, watch him tomorrow night and tell me if you think he thinks it's just a game. hey, they are short timers, but if they're going to be here for only a couple more years might as well have some fun with the raiders. there was a pretty good hint of what might be to come. look at marshawn lynch, number 24 looking spry, energetic and fresh legs as he goes through his drills with the raiders. if that guy can play, he missed all of last year. brief retirement for him, but he talked today about coming back to his hometown and how the impending move to vegas actually impacted his decision to join the silver and a black. >> them staying probably wouldn't have been so big for me to want to come and play, but knowing that they was leaving and, you know, a lot of the kids here probably won't have an opportunity to see most of their idols growing up, be
in their hometown any more, with me being from here, continuing to be here, it gives them an opportunity. they get to see somebody that actually did it. >> all right, and jack del rio tweeted this out from his phone today. as you see him in action, breaking off a little touchdown run. of course, it is just practice. but man, he looks pretty good right now. september. a couple months away obviously. meantime, got to readjust our sites, and that's kind of a tough thing for giants fans to do. they're just out of it. there's no other way to explain it. it's one of those games. that's some big money pitching right there. jeff samardzija, bark in the park night in milwaukee. bring your dog. a lot of charities go to tony
larussa's outfit. 2nd inning, perez deep, that's in the third deck. 1-0 lead brewers. four-run second. and eric sogard, a little blooper down the left field line. brandon crawford, looked like he was going to make a sensational catch just off his glove. any other year brandon catches that ball. he's a gold glover, two runs score. and then the injury to insult. the pitcher, chase an a deer son of the brewers, clobbers one to left. austin slater can't come up with it. that's an rbi double. as we currently stand the brewers on top in that ball game 5-0 in the 8th. meantime, that's all the time. >> save some for later. >> we're out of time. >> i like that bring your dog to the game. >> that's so cute. >> tony larussa behind that. >> mark, thank you. >> see you later, everyone. >> thanks for joining us. good night. celebrate the summer of heroes, only at
whatcha doin' there? working on a new plan to catch the roadrunner? the humorous implication being that i am wile e. coyote? yes. and this is a schematic for a bird-trapping device that will ultimately backfire and cause me physical injury? yes. (quick chuckle) what i'm doing here is trying to determine when i'm going to die. a lot of people are working on that research. so what is all this? my family history factoring in longevity, propensity for disease, et cetera. interesting. cause of death for uncle carl was kbb. what's kbb? killed by badger. how's that? it was thanksgiving. uncle carl said, "i think "there's a badger living in our chimney. hand me that flashlight."
