6:02 pm
operate out of the airport. >> and by that, what do you mean? >> well, this is not an area that has lots of high risk takers. the people who operate here are cognizant of the fact that we're in the middle of a neighborhood and behave accordingly. >> okay. general aviation airport and a lot of small planes, private own, things like that. just stuck in an area of a lot of homes. is it something that pilots take extra precaution ongoing in and out? >> certainly in my conversations with the pilot community at this location, they do take extra precautions. like i said, we just don't have the risk takers that you sometimes see at other locations. >> all right. eric peterson at reid-hillview. again, two people walk away from a rough landing at the airport. it's on the eastern side of san jose. the plane stopped by an airport fence. and we heard that no one was hurt on the ground and the

>> happy. >> that wasn't all. he later surprised his son and ran up and gave dad a huge hug. one guy out there fighting the elements is our meteorologist paul deanno live in san anselmo. what's going on with the radar. >> reporter: that radar is thankfully getting more active. but i wish we saw more rainfall overnight and earlier today. on average, the bay area got about .10" of rainfall over the past 4 hours. we may add to that coming up this evening as kpix 5 hi-def doppler radar is showing more showers moving into the north bay and i think that everybody will see another round of showers this evening and overnight tonight under cloudy skies but we need a lot more. it's better than nothing. it cut the allergens out of the air. so there's some good news but this is only .02" of rain and that's it. a winter weather advisory for the north and central sierra there, good for the ski resorts and for the snowpack. we likely will see from 2" to
6:47 pm
6" of new snowfall overnight tonight and early tomorrow before things clear out. take a look at the view from space. our satellite view shows that next wave of low pressure moving through, i know most of the rain fell overnight. some of you were already sunny and sunny throughout the day. we have another wave of low pressure moving through this evening and that will be the catalyst for the showers. overnight tonight starting to get breezy so winds 10 to 15 miles an hour. gusts to 23 miles an hour at sfo so hold on to your hat if you are out this evening and consider bringing the umbrella. another chance of rainfall on sunday as a cutoff area of low pressure passes by to the west. what to expect for tonight and beyond? showers coming back tonight on and off throughout the night perhaps early tomorrow morning if you are out and about really early. we are dry for much of the day tomorrow. we are dry on saturday. but it won't be as warm. we are not talking 70s anymore. we are talking about highs around 60. seasonal temperatures. and that next shower chance will be on sunday. mainly at the coast. let's get right to the extended forecast if we can. getting to the seven-day after
6:48 pm
highs tomorrow right around 60 degrees. looking through the weekend and for the first half of next week that one chance of rain coming up on sunday with showers at the coast. then much of next week mainly dry with highs in the low to mid-60s. this is not a drought-helping seven-day forecast. live from san anselmo. paul deanno. sports is next.

6:53 pm
if that's what you need to do to make yourself feel like a better player, you have to tell everyone i'm the best corner in the league, go ahead and tell 'em. people forget that he went for 100 on sherman the year before and if that's something you need to do, go right ahead. we're going to come out and play football against you next year. >> do you want seattle to win even though they are in your division? at least you can say we lost to the super bowl champ on do you not want them to win? >> not a chance. [ laughter ] >> that's kaepernick's longest soundbyte of the year. sherman moved on from the crabtree attention and on to walter payton saying the future hall of fame -- peyton manning saying the future hall of famer gets away with a lot of dust thrown and the legion of chances will have its chances on sunday. >> i believe it to be true, as well. they say he is a smart player. i think that's, uhm, i think that's a real reach what he is

woven into how we watch football. what is this company that had an eye in the sky technology with use of vectors to make the 2013 america's cup user and viewer-friendly. this is the vector and it snaps up. >> reporter: that same technology is used in auto racing. remember the glowing puck in the nhl? it lasted a couple of years. it all comes from sports vision headquartered in chicago but here in mountain view, it's where the magic happens. it's what you would think the nerve center of a videogame would look like. they have come a long way from creating the yellow first down marker and the blue line of scrimmage you will see in the super bowl. >> we're part of that and known as that the yellow line guys but there's so much more to it than the yellow line. the bubble that you see over the cars in motorsports are just a few of our more noteworthy things. >> here we have our own little
