temperatures today were up there. here are some of the records again, 75 in oakland. it was 74 in mountain view. in a tied record, 72 at san jose. the warm spot was livermore at 75. temperatures tomorrow are going to be slightly cooler than these numbers. one of the reasons we're going to see cooling is we've got a little bit of fog right along the coast. take a look here, and you'll see it. we haven't seen that in a while. little patches of it. but it's out that pretty much now in a larger form. showing up at half moon bay in pacifica. by tomorrow, it is should move that fog away. fire weather warning goes into effect tonight at 10:00 it went into effect. it stays into effect until tomorrow at 3:00 p.m.ment the store there is where is the winds? those should pick up overnight, and into the north bay.
10:50 pm
there's the high surf advisory. that is also starting to verify. you take a look at the current buoys offshore, and what you're going to see. they go up 8 to 12 feet. swells are on the increase. tomorrow's weather forecast, there's no big change. the extended forecast, we're going to continue with that increased fire in the north bay. that's because of this offshore flow. here's the high pressure center. it's pushing the winds offshore. it's going to make for a great mavericks contest on friday. this offshore wind really cleans up. a nice offshore flow. a dry pattern holds us really into the weekend. but the next day or so, we're going to see temperatures, just a little bit warmer. lots of 60s, even low 70s, as you go into the weekend, temperatures are going to pump up a little beyond that. we've just got this pattern where it's staying warm. 67 in napa. 69 in pittsburgh. 68 in livermore. these forecast highs are right above the average and slightly
10:51 pm
cooler than what we had today. still repetitive, this weather we've been experiencing is just non-stop, day after day. a few records here. a few records there. cool overnight lows. then the five-day forecast that looks like this. you've just got sunshine shooting across the top there. weekend warms up a little bit. as we head into next week, dry, dry, dry. the next shot for rain. somewhere around february 2nd, 3rd. >> somewhere way down the line. >> right now, we are dry for this five day, and the next one. >> 25 below in minneapolis right now. >> oh, my gosh, it's wrong. >> doesn't feel like january. more trouble for target tonight. the minneapolis based retail chain announced it is laying off 475 workers, and will eliminate another 700 vacant positions. it also announced it will stop offering health insurance to part time employees this

spring. the income dropped last year, due in part to expansion in canada, and sales slumped after hackers stole information from 110 million target customers. what happened to the cal bears? >> it's exactly what julie always tells us, you've got to watch the game. that's why they play them. you get a little overconfident there. undefeated in the pac-12, facing usc who hadn't won a single game in conference. it looked logical on the court, but not to that man. early, 11-3 usc run. the bears would stay tight, but they just couldn't get over the hump. justin cobs led them with 22 points. fade on the baseline, coming up. got it to drop, and one. but cal was still down 9 at half. trojans just able to maintain the margin throughout.
10:53 pm
23 off the bench. the freshman from serbia. that made sense in any language. 77-69, first conference loss for the cal bears. the schedule said san jose state was playing number 7 san diego state tonight, and that is when the bad news started for the spartans. aztecs hot. make it 16 straight wins. tenacious defense does it for them. winston shepherd on the dunk right there. high percentage shot. aztecs 17-1 on the year. the spartans looking for their first conference win, it didn't add up. 75-50, pretty much says it all. we'll let you know who the yankees shelled out another of those megacontracts for. and help on the way to solve an injury problem or two. stay put. sports part 2 is next.

10:57 pm
described as day-to-day. but in this instance, help could be on the way. jermaine o'neal's return could be within a week. you bet, anxious to return. >> schedule gets shorter and shorter. you see your team needs you, against indiana, would have had a couple of big guys. it gets tough to watch. i don't necessarily like as much watching games. all in all, we are trying to do something special. going for a serious run now. all of that money, the yankees don't have to pay a-rod certainly burned a hole in their pockets. they spend it in a big way. luring japan's top pitcher. $155million. $20million they had to pay to his team for taking him away. masahiro tanaka, it will be a
