schedule. is that a good thing, or a bad thing? >> i think it's a good thing. it's going to move through the bay area more rapidly. in the north bay, it's hung up there. it's going to be hung up for four or five hours. once it gets to san francisco, it looks like it translates quickly. here's the current radar. heading towards the chico area. santa rosa getting moderate rainfall. like i said already a half inch of rain. i'm showing you rain. i'm going to go to we call these storm reports. from observers, trained observers on the ground. what we're seeing up here in fern dale, a 58 mile-an-hour wind. a wind gust. what's going on up here, there's a wind gust at 50 miles per hour. let's trickle further north. 60miles an hour in west haven. i know it's northern california, but that system is coming this way. that's what we're up against. that's what's headed our way. this system, as it moves in has
10:50 pm
a lot going for it. a lot of moisture coming in off of the subtropics. cold air. significantly strong upper level winds, that's fueling this thing. on top of this thing, we've got a warmer sea surface temperature. the warmer water fuels the storm as well. this warmer water, relatively warmer, upper 50s, is actually enhancing the moisture content of the atmosphere. so here we are. here's the model 1:00 a.m. santa rosa. continuing to rain. at 7, or 8:00 a.m., it starts to roll through san francisco. this line is massive. it will go off when it hits your house, you will hear it. it slices into fremont at 9:00 a.m. either way it goes, i'd say tomorrow between 7:00 a.m., and about 1:00, it's going to be a wet, wild day around here. so just be ready for it. behind the storm, not bad.
10:51 pm
showers, but nothing like we saw. that's a big break. friday, we do have a chance for more showers, but not a big deal compared to what we've seen. the five-day forecast, with the bay area weekend in view, it's all about tomorrow. it's a 10 out of 10. i have never said that, frank. i've never said 10 out of 10. it's a big storm, but it's a one and done, it's exactly the way, we're very fortunate that's the case. if it wasn't we'd be in big trouble. scott reese is in now for mark. the warriors tonight hoping to continue that winning streak. >> yeah, we'll all be shocked when they finally lose a game. who says 13 is unlucky? it was november 13, the warriors were just 5-2 coming off back-to-back losses. since then, 13 straight wins. tonight, a chance they would get the rockets without star james harden, who wears, yeah, number 13. that luck ran out. harden did play despite a sore back. dwight howard, and andrew bogut did not for their respective
10:52 pm
teams. seth curry drives. loses the handle throws it off the window. things are going well for this group. curry doing the more conventional work from way downtown. 7 rebounds for steph. 46-46 at the break. the dubs pull away late on the break. harrison barnes passes up the open 3. a great look to sean livingston. the bench productive again. clay thompson the dagger. a 15-3 run to end it for the air yores who have won 14 in a row. 105-93 is your final. must be an east bay thing. cal, off to its best start in seven years at 7-1, with very little fanfare. tonight, a sneaky tough home game against wyoming. bob melvin may be scouting for baseball talent. got some slots to fill all of a sudden. a low scoring 1st half.
10:53 pm
larry nance jr., put it on the deck and the finish. the cowboys 16-15 at the half. yeesh. 2nd half, the bears do just enough. 12 of his 17 in the 2nd half. cal does win 45-42. the a's set to bid farewell to yet another quality arm. i will tell you who. plus colin kaepernick like you've never seen him before. hear from the media friendly quarterback, next.

they play hard. didn't execute. all areas. they're a good team. same as always. >> he's a man of few words, and fewer facial expressions. colin kaepernick has perfected the art of saying nothing. today, he turned over a new leaf and a new look. new head phones and hoody. the most important of which were about sunday's opponent, the rival seahawks. the qb did not play well against seattle on thanksgiving. throwing for just 121 yards and tossing a pair of picks. he knows that the rematch in seattle will certainly be no picnic. >> their defense is great. they could a lot of things
10:57 pm
well, it's always good competition out there. you have to be able to rise. the game we played thanksgiving are two games we look at. we try to take everything we can from those. see if we can attack them to try to get this win. barring an 11th hour blockbuster it appears the a's will not trade anyone today. that doesn't mean their roster didn't take another hit. u.s.a. reporter relieving luke gregerson and the astros have come to terms on a 3 year, $18.5 million deal. gregerson, sterling e.r.a. out of the bullpen for oakland last season. he could either set up, or close in houston. just another piece of the puzzle that will have to be replaced by billy bean prior to next season. getting back to colin kaepernick, i like this version. >> nice to hear from him. >> smiles, answers questions. beautiful thing. >> makes it a lot easier too when you're trying to get answers to your questions. thank you for joining us tonight. our coverage continues at
