christy field tonight. >> that fog is rolling in right now. we also have warm temperatures inland. not a bad way to start off the week as we head throughout the next dumb couple of days. you can see the fog in san francisco. currently, 62 degrees. a mild 77 for the average in the east bay. an average as well in the south bay in the 70s. downtown specifically, unlimited visibility and 75 degrees. through tomorrow morning's forecast, we have the fog coming back. you'll see that in the forecast. with enough of that moisture rolling in across san francisco that will likely see spotty areas of drizzle and 55. 59 for the peninsula and the south bay at 58. let's take you to the microclimate forecast. temperatures will warm up a few degrees tomorrow. still a beautiful day on the south bay. that will put san jose at 83 degrees. over to morgan hill, 86. palo alto, 79. a string of 60s through san francisco. the coolest microclimate, the
marina and 64. fog is expected to continue to roll across the golden gate bridge. for the north bay, east bay and the tri-valley, you are probably very glad to see there's no 90s or 100s. looking good tomorrow in danville at 85 degrees. back to livermore, 86. for napa, it warms up to 81. then right here across mill valley, 74 degrees. high pressure is building into place here. at least through tomorrow. but that's going to begin to fade by wednesday. that will make way for our next weather maker. you're going to be able to see here, it's the cooling trough of low pressure. there's no rainfall associated with this. but as this drops down here across the western coastline, it's going to be good enough to drop our inland temperatures into the 70s. we get at least some comfortable weather as we head throughout this week after those hot 100s we had at least within the past eight days. here's how it looks. by thursday, 79 degrees for walnut creek. by friday, 77. then here we go again. it gets hot again by sunday at
90 degrees. coolest days this week, thursday and also on friday. here's how that trend plays out for other portion was the north bay. you'll be able to see here by friday, 78 degrees. by saturday, 83. by sunday, 92. the south bay will go from the 78 on friday up to 90 degrees on sunday. raj and jess, cool and comfortable as we head throughout this week. by sunday, it does get hot again. of course, more coming up tonight. >> that's good hockey weather. >> hot like that? >> thank you, jeff. coming up, a wildfire in monterrey county. help is on the way. a few bay area departments are responding. >> yes, we're counting down to the stanley cup final on nbc bay area. it's a hot ticket. how do you protect yourself from getting scammed with fake tickets? we've got some answers. tonight a strike team from the
they're battling a wildfire in monterrey county. they've joined a crew in alameda county. it's grown to 3200 acres southwest of king city. also burning in lows padres national forest. it spread quickly because of strong winds and hot temperatures. this is just one of six large wildfires. you can see right there, burning across the state tonight. what a time for the bay area. another superstar is in town. he may be even more popular than steph curry and lebron james. leonell messi is here. features argentina, his country versus chile. part of the tournament. because of a back injury, he will be coming off the bench for argentina. won't be starting the match. the game starts at 7:00 p.m. if you plan to go or have to go near levi stadium or 101 in santa clara, be prepared for
heavy traffic. he may be adding another championship ring, but he won't be playing for olympic gold. steph curry announced he's withdrawing his name from consideration for the 2016 summer grams in brazil. his injury sustained during the playoffs was a major factor. >> he needs a break. >> well-deserved. we're a few minutes away from game 4 of the stanley cup final on nbc bay area. it's a great time for the sharks and ticket scammers. we'll show you how to avoid being swindled. if you've had your car stolen in
the bay area, you're not alone. ==take voprepro== the bay area is among the top regions in the nation with the if you've ever had your car stolen in the bay area, you're not alone. it's among the top regions in the nation with the worst car thefts in the country. san francisco alone had more than 30,000 car thefts. that includes oakland and hayward. the ranking is actually encouraging because san francisco had the most thefts the year before.
now it's ranked number five. i guess that's good news. the number one distinction goes to modesto. several other metropolitan areas made the list, stockton, lodi, vallejo and fairfield. >> talk about getting scammed. it's terrible. that's how sharks fans after shelling out big money for tickets that look really, really well. >> they called police and us. specifically chris gomorrah. you were showing us the tickets. >> these are legitimate looking. but they're not legitimate at all. the same is likely true of warriors tickets. two sharks fans lost $700 and 800 bucks respectively. a third one fell for a $1200 ripoff. the sour deals started on craigslist. the sharks don't guarantee tickets resold there. the team only guarantees resold via ticketmaster. protect yourself. use the official site for the team. if you choose to take your
chances with a scalper, i'll warn you, they'll probably offer to meet you at the box office to verify them. it sounds considerate and bogus. the sharks said they verify tickets on gameday at the gate. not in advance. still determined to buy from a stranger? at least snap a photo of the seller. if you're scammed and file a police report, which i suggest you should do, at least that mugshot will give detectives one clue. speaking of pictures, there's a huge gamble in posting photos of your tickets online. savvy counterfeiters can easily download the bar code there to make countless copies of their own and you'll be left at the gate to sort it all out. do you have a consumer complaint, reach out to nbc bay area responds. 888-996-tips or share your story at nbcbayarea.com/responds. back to you, raj and jess. this is why i watch it on tv. >> you've got to guard the tickets. >> the game here on nbc bay area. we're back in a moment. one last look at the shark
okay. get ready to bleed teal. sharks and penguins game 4 of the stanley cup final coming up next right here on nbc bay area. >> go sharks. the first time a home game in the stanley cup final being played here in 25 years. >> it was their biggest moment in franchise history. but in the spring never before seen in san jose there was heightened tension. the home team trailing in the series, desperate for a win. >> scores! deflected in front and the final minute of the second period. >> for the third straight game, the sharks needed a goal late in regulation.
