these yellows, those are 70s. i haven't seen these in a while. tomorrow forecast highs, low 70s. lots of 60s, as well, mid-60s, upper 60s, a really nice day. it looks like this ridge is going to break down. by next week, we'll get some rain in here. that's a more favorable, or certainly more optimistic than it looked earlier in the week. five-day forecast, you see the clouds on monday, that's the beginning of that big fat ridge breaking down, and the beginning of wet weather around here. >> let's keep our fingers crossed and hope we do. >> yeah, it's been a while. the ozone hole over antarctica is the smallest it's been in a decade. it prevents hazardous ultraviolet light from reaching the earth's surface. despite the promising news, scientists say the ozone layer isn't expected to recover to 1960 levels until around 2050.

take a look, the san francisco zoo announced the birth of a sumatran cub today.
10:56 pm
the furry was one born sunday. veterinarians won't know for a couple of weeks whether it's male or female. they're a critically endangered species with fewer than 400 in the wild. let's talk a little sports now. baseball is back, and a lot of optimism this season. >> there should be. the two bay area teams, i think it's legitimate. pitchers and catchers well into their process, down into arizona for both the giants here and the a's. great memories from last season due to linger. one of the best for the giants. game 7 against the cardinals in the nlcs. san francisco blows the deciding 7th game open early. a bases clearing double off the bat of hunter pence. he actually stroked it three times. manager bruce bochy joking today, that his right fielder might add that ability to his
10:57 pm
regular batting repertoire. >> he's going to work on it this spring to see if he can be a little more consistent with it, instead of a one time deal. see if we can do it a few more times this year. hit the ball three times. it's quite an art. it takes a lot of work. that's why we're here in spring training. to see if we can get that down. >> bruce seems like he's in a pretty good mood these days. it's very early in the process. one of the stepping stones to deciding what horses will compete in the kentucky derby, come the first saturday in may. right here in our own backyard. the el camino real derby. for years it seems horses bred in california have been taken a little lightly. they say they don't compare to the kentuckians, so to speak. that notion is now a thing of the past, say the experts that joe fonzi spoke with today at the track. >> i don't see that bias anymore. if you your horse shows his stuff, he's going to be liked
10:58 pm
by the public. if he has proper numbers, things are going his way, they're going to take a look at him no matter where they're from. >> they pick them apart pretty good, especially in the media. california horses, quite a few of them have won back east. some actors will go to great lengths to prepare for a role. it appears will farrell is in that category. apparently the comic will play a security guard at sporting events. this is will farrell at last night's phoenix suns, lakers game. he sigh a a guy by the name of shaquille o'neal does not have the proper pass to be sitting court court side, and he escorts him off the field. as usual, not breaking character, straight face, and of course, shaq plays along, like the good sport he is.
10:59 pm
will farrell, and the security guard. much like the anchorman, i'm sure. a film to be released in the not too distant future. that's the sporting night for your wednesday night. >> he's so funny, he does it with such a straight face. >> he can make anything funny. >> a little off the wall. just looking at him is a crack up. >> what do you think about the giants? i know spring training hasn't even begun yet. do you think the giants and a's, are both going to be good this year? >> the giants, obviously, their main team will be the dodgers who are just loaded with talent, and the a's, have a tough chore to get over on the anaheim angels who have just loaded up. it's going to be tough for them to repeat as western division champs, but both are in for it. it's going to be a fun ride though. >> baseball is back. thanks mark. >> thank you for trusting ktvu, channel 2 news. we'll see you the next time
