how things develop because you know as mayor ed lee has said and chief suhr they are not backing down and will fight for change within the department that is the way these people want except for their sayings that they need a peace offering and they want chief suhr out and they want something in good faith to let them know the department will get cleaned up in their words. >> tara, thank you. a former 49er accused of rape. today attorneys for dana stubblefield went on the offensive. why they say the district attorney should be removed from the case. gets a special birthday celebration. one of greatest san francisco giants of all time will be remembered on the historic number 24 cable car. and more communication problems inside the oakland police department. this time police radios and their computers were down at the same time. coming up, we look into the problem that included forcing

icons coming together. the president says it is clear that city loves willie mays. he went on a ride on his cable car. >> what a treasure. >> i remember seeing that at a baseball game. the all-star game and willie mays was there. he wasn't playing but after his career was over and i got him to sign a baseball and put it in my pocket. and i laid around and when i pulled it out, it had smudged. i was so crushed. i thought i finally got willie mays' autograph and what an idiot i got it smudged in my pocket. >> he looks good. >> what an incredible player. >> bill, did you see him play? >> yes, with willie mccubby against the cincinnati reds at candle stick back in '69. >> the chain-linked fence? >> yes. >> that was back in the day they would do double headers. >> all day. >> and they would drop us at the ballpark from 9 until
whenever. >> he is a cool guy. >> and pete rose was playing and johnny bench, it was fun. those were the days. >> rain out there guys. and no real thunder and lightning in the north bay or central bay. but some thunder and lightning south and we did get rain. we talked about it earlier. not bad. get the pollen out of the atmosphere and to increase the fuel moisture that will help or delay the fire system. every little bit counts. storms and snow on the higher peaks. the main showers moving out of the area and the lightning strikes south. moving down the spine of the coastal range and a slight chance of a shower tomorrow morning in the bay area. but i suspect short lived and after 11:00 tomorrow morning or noon we are in the clear. so in the morning hours for san francisco, we could have showers or sprinkles likely and
very similar to what we saw today. light and it clears out by the afternoon. chance of showers stays in the forecast but i don't think it will happen. i think if it does. it will be a little widely scattered. by 4:00 in san francisco, you are warmed up to 62 degrees. partly sunny. it is now starting to eject. as it moves off to the plains and the great basin, big snow in the rockies and the pressure system continues to push weather as it travels across the country. scattered rain showers lingering and it grabs lingering moisture and pulls it south. as we get to saturday and sunday, things start to change for your mother's day week and weather looks much better and saturday afternoon you will see sunshine and pressure moves in and we are back for the beautiful spring weather. forecast highs tomorrow.
mid 60s and some of the warmest spots and the five-day forecast with the flowers here for mom on sunday. saturday afternoon from lunchtime it is good and sundays not a half bay day. the entire day should be sunny with highs in the low and mid- 70s and warm as we head to next week. i would call this bonus rain. we are deep into may and it is good to get rain and here we are. >> all i thought about was i drank the water. >> my too. >> unusual. >> like in may. >> we will get a little. but the last four years dry that there is a need to keep the rain coming and we will be dry for mot of the week. coming up later. a special mother's day gift for a bay area mom as she and her husband bring her twin boys home from the nick unit. >> i am over with how well they

was like a baby. he couldn't speak. he couldn't walk. he couldn't swallow and so instead of approaching him the way i always had which was like the super fix it mom, he had learning disabilities and i was trying to fix him, fix him and i saw the glass half empty and i got a chance to go it over again and to look at him for who he is and celebrate what he has and not focus on what he doesn't have. >> you said for 7 months full time care you left the chronicle and it sound like reinvented your role as a mother but how you envisioned the whole experience. >> i did. when i went back to the chronicle, newsrooms are this strange sub cull where it

>> the big lesson i have taken away from ryan's accident and being a mother now for almost 26 years is that you have to raise the child you have. not the child that you expected and not the child that you may be wish you had because we want our little babies in our arms. >> we think what it will be before we met them and they are who they are. >> and i spend so many years trying to turn ryan into the mainstream kid, the kid that would make me feel comfortable and me feel safer in his future instead of him flourish and i got to tell you, he is a great human being. >> and doing great. >> he got a job three week ago and it has been a really long
recovery but doing so much better. >> that was interesting especially at the end. accept the child who it is and not who you wanted the child to be and parent them accordingly. >> it is nice to hear he is doing better. >> the emotional trip that officers left on today. help needed as entire towns turn into evacuatation evacuation zones. look at that and how people are helping the cars get out of the fire. >> we will tell you more how the weather will be impacted this week after the break.

>> for those that deny climate change says the numbers don't. >> they have predicted that fires are more common. >> for california, it is a worse at worse fires to according are come. >> seeing what is going on in indiana, they are ahead of us in terms of climate impact and to think what we are going to do to get ready of fire we will study it more. >> a new reality. >> places like the eastern seaboard and the appalachians, they are probably getting a change like canada. the question that everyone wants answered, can we stop it? >> i think it is a great question. we have to learn how to live with it. and it will dictate the terms unless we adapt it ourselves to be more accommodating. there is no way we will get away with it. >> look for more mega fires here in canada. tom vacar, ktvu fox 2 news. yeah, just seeing the pictures out of canada and seeing the flames.

putting fires out effectively. the areas need to burn and that's why in canada i am not versed in the alberta area but here we will see more mega fires because we are not seeing fires put out rapidly. the strikes here, you can see them, there is the system through san jose and they got .15 of an inch. lots of lightning strikes on the coastal range. and the imagery shows kind of a stormy sky and dying down and maybe a few sprinkles tomorrow and tomorrow morning and i think we are done after that. here is tomorrow morning in san francisco. showers and chance of showers and that's how it will go. a spray sprinkle and we keep a chance in the afternoon. but really it is going to be
over by lunchtime. i think it is over in terms of area rain. not like where it spreads through the area. here is the system. out of here and as it rolls off the high pressure center will drop in and that send temperatures to your mother's day week. soaring and in the 70s. second half of saturday nice, all of sunday nice. tomorrow mid 60s and upper 60s. sunday high temperatures and low and mid-70s. there's the five-day forecast. rain was good and hope it is not slowing down your commute and we dry out by lunchtime. >> a way to remember officers killed in the line of duty. >> why bay area police are joining others in new jersey. >> and a special mother's day gift for a bay area mom as she
