place. >> reporter: the staff at abilities united is hoping for an outcome so their camping trips can continue. >> for many of them, it's the only chance they have to go cam offing or do outdoor activities. >> the staff says they hope the person who broke into this shed at least did it out of necessity and are using those supplies. ian cull. >> charged with quadruple murder, a palo alto man could be locked up for life. kevin dahlgren is accused of stabbing his and, uncle and two cousins. he has been extradited to the czech republic and is now awaiting trial. >> throwing in the towel, an assistant basketball coach fired for sexual harassment gave up his appeal today.

factory. >> and brian stowe back to municipal stadium in san jose. he threw out the first pitch for opening night. it's been five years since stow was brutally beaten outside dodgers stadium. he suffered severe brain damage. after extensive rehab, he now use as wheelchair and can walk on crutches. >> day to day is tough. i want to be doing better than i am, but then i think how i could have been and i could be dead. deceased. and i think i'm doing really well right now. >> we agree. we've seen him come a long way in these five years. he travels the country now giving speeches on anti-bullying. as we know, he's a good luck charm. the san jose giants won tonight's game. >> so many of us have watched his progress. he is doing really well. >> and such big giants fan he is. >> here's meteorologist rob
mayeda. what a beautiful day for opening day. >> it was maybe a little bit muggy outside. right now cooling nicely. the sea breeze will allow inland spots to probably not have to run the a.c. overnight like we did last night. should see mid 50s tomorrow morning. what's a little more interesting is the chance rain for us is coming from the south instead of off the pacific. we're going to be watching the storm system here lifting out of southern california into the bay area, which would bring the chance of scattered showers for your morning commute but probably the chance of heavier showers toward the evening in south bay from 5:00 until 8:00 seems to be the target for heavier showers later tomorrow. mid 50s to start. as we head through the midday hours, we'll see temperatures in the 60s and like live staying there with mostly cloudy skies, increasing chances of rain and
the best bet of that will be in the south bay tore tomorrow. high in the upper 60s and mid 60s for san jose. a bill bit cooler for tomorrow's game. and for the north bay, temperatures in the upper 60s. giants versus dodgers. catch the game right here on the nbc bay area. we may see those showers -- we're going to see temperatures in the low to mid 60s to start with rain possible at times and winds 10 to 20 miles per hour. as the system lifts northward, it's not just for friday but even into the weekend as this low moves through southern california, that's going to continue to push the rain from south to north across the bay area. the trend into friday evening and saturday shows the areas here in blue possibly picking up more than a half inch of rain. fairly substantial when you consider the time of year from
now until about 7:00 in the the evening. the first half of the weekend seems to have more wide spread showers. we're going to see our temperatures nowhere near the 80s and 90s. san jose similar trend there as we see the chance of showers for friday into the weekend and the long range forecast brings in not one but two systems. as they get into tuesday and wednesday, the system there will be cold enough for maybe another foot of snow this year. the middle part of next week, that next storm can bring our highs down to 60 and areas above 6,000 feet, one more foot of new snow. back to you. >> so we can go skiing next week? >> let's take the show on the road. thanks, rob. >> coming up, a mustang
most fast food places use formulas to create their combos. but all that math, doesn't always equal something tasty. at my place, you can get a mouthwatering sourdough bacon ranch combo. with a full size beef patty, bacon, and creamy ranch sauce, on toasted sourdough bread. plus hot & salty fries and a freestyle drink for just $4.99. because flavor always beats formulas. the sourdough bacon ranch combo, just $4.99 for a limited time. combos done my way. th muang
