look at the temperatures rise. around dublin, temperatures climbing into the mid 7 0s come tuesday. sunday temperatures begin to climb on up and will warm up more thanks to this ridge of high pressure which is going to hold its ground for the better part of the week. by saturday, maybe a slight chance of showers. that will be the last chance of any rain we think for the minon of february. next weekend could see a few showers. very dry finish to the month of february. perhaps the better news as we move forward, the long-range forecast for march, still looks food for above average rainfall especially toward the middle part of the month. ending february on a mostly dry note. march still looks good. fourth quarter of the rainfall season we hope brings a change of fortune around here and the rest of california. thanks to you. >> february let us down. >> that's right, it did. still to come at 5:00, one is amazing on broadway, the other on the football field. hugh jackman and marshawn lynch joining forces in oakland. >> what could bring them together? we'll tell you about the cause that did just that. new details tonight in the figh
