10:49 pm

10:50 pm
mid-80s. however, wednesday the wind is going to pick up. we've got low humidity and that means the national weather service has issued a fire weather watch for wednesday into thursday. this is for the north bay hills and east bay hills as well as some of our mountain areas and the concern here is that the wind will kick up. we've got dry conditions. that humidity will drop and that's why fire can spread very quickly. that fire weather watch expecting gusts 35 to 45 miles per hour and relative humidity less than 20%, but it even has the potential to drop down into the teens and single digits. that gets very dangerous very quickly. again, that's 5 a.m. wednesday going through till 5 p.m. thursday. it's really three things th granted we'll be cooler than tomorrow when we get into wednesday, but the dry conditions and the gusty wind comes together to make fire conditions very likely there. look at your extended
10:51 pm
forecast. you see lots of sunshine, a few clouds tuesday. we're looking pretty nice. it's dry. we don't have any rain in the forecast. s a bump this forward to next weekend, again, you can see temperatures pretty nice. if we didn't have the fire concerns, the temperatures are very nice, right? it's quite lovely out there. >> almost perfect. >> october is always a scary month. >> it is. so far, so good. we'll hope that we keep it that way. everyone just needs to be aware wednesday and thursday. just be careful because we'll be in those conditions that could make fire spread quickly. the movie joker set a new record at the october >> what's so funny? >> it's estimated the dark spin on the classic batman villain earned an estimated 93. knife million dollars from ticket estimated$93.5 million

from ticket sales in the first weekend. security concerns over joker's theme may have resulted in added security at some theaters, but it didn't stop moviegoers from attending. in the east bay the theater staff checked bags and took other safety measures. up next in sports baseball playoffs in full swing as the dodgers look to take the lead in their series with the nationals. >> then on the 11:00 news firefighters are still on the scene of a 500-acre fire in the north bay. we'll have a live report from american canyon with unch for me we both like the snacks and the evening meals granny always says... the crew are so lovely with... can i get you anything madam? my uncle loves emirates for... the thousands of channels... plus i never miss a live match and my sister, if she ever spoke to me... would say... it's the free wi-fi... duh!

joe is here now with sports. we're talking about the raiders in london and it was a bit of a tricky game but ended well for the raiders. >> it was and that marathon thing is continuing. so far the raiders' grueling five games in six weeks hasn't turned out so poorly. today's game in london against the bears unusual enough, the first time the raiders faced chicago since the khalil mack trade. raiders jumped to an early lead, 7-0 and deandre washinthe end zone a 17-0 lead to the locker room, but the bears scored 21 points in the third quarter.
10:56 pm
chase daniel finds allen robinson in the corner of the end zone, 21-17 for chicago. raiders put a 13-play drive together in the fourth quarter, josh jacobs over the top with 1:57 left. with 123 yards rushing jacobs had his first 100-yard game. daniel threw a pass in the middle of three raiders. conley makes the pick. oakland wins 24-21. the raiders are 3-2 and have a bye week before their long trip continues to green bay and houston. they'll probably be underdogs in those games as well. >> we know everyone counted us out. we knew no one would pick us to win this football game and we hadn't really proven anything for them to pick us, right? but it shows you the grit and determination of our young guys. it really shows you what kind of team that mr. mayock and coach gruden are trying to build because super close,
10:57 pm
super resilient, super tough. i knew we were a close team, but coach made an emphasis we were going to have to be a close team because of our 700 day road trip. the 49ers had a bye week and extra day to get ready for their game tomorrow night against the cleveland browns largely through the efforts of their defense the 49ers 3-0 the first time since 1995. the browns trio of quarterback baker mayfield, receiver o'dell beckham and running back nick chubb will be their challenge. a 4-0 start will be something the team hasn't achieved since 1990. even if that happens, don't expect kyle shanahan to get giddy. >> we won our first three games, but that makes me feel good about those three games, but there's a long way to go in the season. it doesn't do much for me starting 3-0. we expected to be more competitive in year three and feel we are, but competitive doesn't mean anything. you got to play football. it's going to be really tough
