saturday morning. i will fast forward you into saturday. we wake up to partly to mostly cloudy skies. notice we have a rain line over northern california. it begins to sink our way and notice not a lot going on in our neighborhood but i think it will be a enough to bring us a little bit of drizzle tomorrow morning especially along the coast and this favor the north bay as well. 55 degrees right now in santa rosa. 62 in oakland. 66 in concord. san francisco 61. and san jose checking in at 65. for the north bay today 87 for areas right around san rafael. 77 for sausalito. 79 for alameda. low 80s san leandro. low to mid 90s for our inland city. 94 morgan hill. 91 saratoga. we have 87 wood side as well as redwood city. 80 degrees san bruno. upper 60s to partly to mostly cloudy skies for the second half of the day. the bay area weekend showing you temperatures coming way down and then a slight warmup as we get back to work on
monday. >> rosemary, thank you. the sonoma raceway will be loud this weekend. practice begins for the go pro grand prix. cars will be zooming around the road course. so who do we send? christien kafton is joining us live from sonoma. talking about the excitement and also very bittersweet. they are remembering one of the drivers that was killed earlier. >> reporter: absolutely. i think you hit the nail on the head. it is bittersweet obviously for racing fans. this is the season finale here at sonoma raceway. a lot of excitement but they will be paying tribute to justin wilson who died earlier this week. indy car drivers will be practicing for the first time following his death. later this afternoon drivers will be hitting the track for this practice session followed by a qualifying race tomorrow. this is the first practice since wilson was hit in the head by degree on sunday. he died on monday. yesterday drivers paid tribute
to wilson. marco ann credit tee led a motorcade across the bridge. >> he really is. he has the biggest heart. there is not enough good i can say about the guy. >> reporter: absolutely a sentiment that a lot of racing fans and certainly a lot of drivers are expressing at this time. drivers will also be paying tribute to wilson during sunday's race by wearing a special sticker on their helmets and cars. wilson's death has wised questions about how to make the sport safer including the idea of enclosing the cockpit of that indy car to protect the drivers from flying debris but driver juan pablo says it's hard to say if that would make anything better. if you enclose the cockpit it
could make it more difficult to get drivers out. the race is as safe as they can really make it practically at this time. they say precautions like this has gotten better over the years but you simply can't account for all accidents. you can expect a lot of racing fans to show up here to see this finale on sunday. and again the tribute to justin wilson. >> that is interesting about the part about getting drivers out because that is probably more often the case where there has been a crash and they try to get the driver out for emergency services. >> right. >> you simply can't a account for what will happen on the track. anything can really happen. that is part of the excitement of the sport is that there is this feeling anything can happen at any time. nobody wants to see a crash but there is no way to know if the safety precautions are going to make it safer in one area and make it more difficult to reprove a driver from a dangerous situation in another area. so i think that is what juan pablo was referring to.
i love the jetta. but what about a deal? terry, stop! it's quite alright... you know what? we want to make a deal with you. we're twins, so could you give us two for the price of one? come on, give us a deal. look at how old i am. do you come here often? he works here, terry! you work here, right? yes... ok let's get to the point. we're going to take the deal. get a $1000 volkswagen reward card on select 2015 jetta models. or lease a 2015 jetta s for $139 a month after a $1000 volkswagen bonus.
