4:42 pm
and one of the greatest baseball performances in postseason history. jockey will be giving some of those away during tomorrow's parade. madison bumgarner will no doubt cash in from his series exploits. he deserves it. especially when you compare how much he's getting paid compared to his teammates. he is an amazing bargain given what he just accomplished. this past season bumgarner was paid only $3.75 million. i say only, because you look at the comparisons, that made him only the eighth highest paid pitcher on the squad. eight on his own team. 14th overall in the giants payroll. highest paid, matt cain, who recently signed a $20 million deal. tim lincecum on the first of a two-year deal at $17 million. tim hudson had to be yanked in the second inning of yesterday's game at $11 million. next year it will be a little bit better for mad bum. the giants are paying him $6.5 million. still making him the fifth highest paid pitcher on the roster.

4:44 pm
raining at the start of the parade. we'll show you what's happening at the moment. we've got a cloudy sky as the minutes go by. tomorrow, nationally, look for mainly dry weather picture across the 48 contiguous states. showers in the eastern great lakes down to the ohio valley. showers in the pacific northwest. and down into the state of california, including the bay area. showers will start during the overnight hours. they'll make their way over to the sierra where we expect snow tomorrow night and into saturday. tomorrow in the daytime looks like a cool day over in the sierra. here, in the bay area tomorrow, look for cloudy skies. periods of rain and showers. the wettest periods will probably be in the morning hours. the showers will sift eastward and southward. highs tomorrow mainly in the mid-60s. let's come back on the camera for a second. i want to make it clear, we expect the rainiest part of the day in the city, where the parade will take place, from the morning hours up to about noon, maybe some breaks in the
4:45 pm
afternoon hours, so if you're along the parade route in the morning you're going to get wet. afternoon looks a little bit drier. for trick-or-treaters, late afternoon to early evening looks like the best time to get out tomorrow if you want to avoid getting wet. that's it for now. >> thank you, spencer. still ahead on abc 7 news at 4:00, kidd rock rocks the world. helping make a man's wish come true. the latest place the high-tech device won't be welcomed. michael finney, the small powerful words. victoria secret ignited outrage across social media. that story coming
