long-range forecast. la nina and el nino tend to send us weather extremes. la nina is ending. summer temperatures could be coming back eventually, and by fall we have a 50% chance that a weak el nino develops into winter. what could that mean for us if el nino did develop again? an 86% chance for most of the bay area of near normal rainfall. but you can see southern california would have the better bet of possibly above-average rain. this will be the first indication of this. we will be tracking it. >> how did we get to may already this year? it's going so fast. >> got to put it on pause for a little here. things so good for the warriors, how do they take control of the series against the rockets? we'll hear from the players, next.
