moving the maps around, not as much coverage for san francisco, but a few showers around alameda, and oakland, extending across a good portion of the east bay. up in the northern portion of the region, not as much action here. for tomorrow morning, mostly cloudy skies. a chance of a few scattered showers. temperatures starting out the day in the 50s. today's system moving out of town. our next one showing up here. you get an idea, there's a break. tomorrow, not as much rainfall. just a chance of a shower for your thursday forecast. lots of clouds out there, this next system moves onshore. that will be on friday, with rainfall redeveloping, and the chance of some lingering showers into saturday morning. rainfall expectations with this guy could be on the order of about a quarter of an inch, to possibly an inch for the north bay, coastal hills. also for the santa cruise mountains. here's our forecast model. tomorrow, holding onto a chance of showers. mainly partly cloudy to mostly cloudy skies. rainfall redevelops into
10:51 pm
friday. splitting apart here. then the chance of a few lingering rain showers into friday. temperatures for tomorrow, mainly in the 60s for afternoon highs. san jose, we go 66. livermore 65. half moon bay, 61. here is a look ahead. your five-day forecast still pretty busy. the most intensive part of the week that was yesterday and today. the rainfall redevelops on a friday. showers on a saturday morning. maybe more rain clouds. a chance on sunday, but a better bet into monday. i will say the rest of december looks pretty active as well. >> good stuff, thanks mark. mark is here now. almost a bad record set tonight. >> yeah, the kind of history you don't want anything to do with. nobody wants a silver star next to their name in the book of losers. the philadelphia 76ers narrowly avoid such a dishonor. had they lost tonight, that would have tied the mark for
10:52 pm
worst start in nba history. kj mcdaniels will have himself a nice touch here. led them with 27 tonight. then michael carter williams will get it to nerlens noel. philly ends their losing streak at 17. they were 0-17. remember the new jersey nets started the 2009-2010 season, 0- 18. it does look like the sixers have the inside track on the number 1 draft choice for next june. hey, if you get 10 straight victories, of course, all about the team. steph curry hit the winning shot last night with a couple of seconds left. nailing down the latest victory, but he has simply done it all just about every night, and everybody has in thed in the nba's western conference, he's the player of the month there. yep, he plays the starring role, but you would be hard- pressed to get him to talk about himself for very long.
10:53 pm
>> you're 15-2 and having your franchise best starts and things like that. you know, the mood around the team is really high. and a great honor. hopefully it continues for the rest of the season. hard to quibble with the victory, but cal needing double overtime tonight to handle montana. it doesn't really bode all that well for the bears in berkely this evening. that's ryan anderson of the new orleans pelicans. former bear in town to check out his old school. cal down 3. jordan matthews will can a three and we go to overtime. in fact, they'll go to a second overtime. 76-76. this time, cal's sam singer who won't get it to fall, but up there on the board is david kravish to board it. the bears off to a good start, 6-1. raiders/niners. colin kaepernick didn't feel like talking again today.
10:54 pm
so let's concentrate on the positives. that would be the defense. they don't mind doing the lions' share of the work. sports part 2, next.

10:56 pm
you already know, it's super huge sunday. ordinarily, you would like to hear from the quarterback.
10:57 pm
scrap that from the 49ers. colin kaepernick asked 32 questions. he responded in 87 words. 88 if you count yep. forget him. talk about the defense. even with patrick willis out. clearly, they carried the bulk of the load, and it's got to continue if this team is going to make it to the postseason, but they'd like it if the offense would chime in a little bit from time to time. >> you can only control what you can control. i try to be the best i can be. the defense tries to be the best defense we can be, and just allow our offense to come around. we need them to win these games, and they need us. we just need to count on each other. >> it would be their super bowl if they up end the 49ers come sunday afternoon. >> that's two and a half words per question for colin kaepernick. >> you figured that out. did you count yep? >> yes, still two and a half. >> getting fewer and fewer every week. >> that's the sporting life. >> thank you for joining us
10:58 pm

ls...something times the square root of... something... [ sighs ] i give up. aw, so close. shut up. hey, don't worry. you'll get it. you know, a lot of famous scientists are women. they're fat, though, right? claire: come on, alex. it's time for your cello lesson. how's the tutoring going? are you familiar with the term "throwing good money after bad"? are you familiar with the term "dunphy, party of one"? because you will be. girls. haley's coming along really well, mrs. dunphy. good. good. well, the key is to take a lot of little breaks so you don't get frustrated and want to quit. got it. i was talking to david. come on, sweetie. i'm just saying -- she's never gonna get a job, and how do we know the right middle-eastern businessman wouldn't treat her great? i left my shopping list inside.
