8:47 am
>> good morning. baseball season is over in the bay area, but former giants and a's played prominent roles in game one of the national league championship series. dodgers and cardinals are in st. louis and mr. carlos beltran. st. louis is apparently the home of synchronized bull pen stretching. bases loaded two outs and former giant juan uribe and 2-0 l.a. the lead didn't last long. former giant beltran crushes it to right center off greinke. joe kelly and matt carpenter scored and we are tied at two. bottom of 9 and cardinals hoping to end it. exgiant brian wilson on the hill and strikes out matt holiday and on to extras. one-out runners on the corners. not a former giant or a, but he flies to right. the former athletic tagging up. molina blocks the plate and he is out. no took applied, but the ball clearly beat ellis.
8:48 am
one out and beltran laces a single off l.a. closer jenson to right. good night, game over, drive home safely. cardinals open the series opener with a score of 3-2 in 13. >> the a's will spend another winter wondering how they can get past detroit in the off series. they will pick up the option on cocoa crisp's contract and would like to resign bartolo colon. >> always want to come back to where you enjoy playing, but it is not up to me now. i feel like i had three years here, three solid years here. >> college football and fifth ranked stanford will visit utah and cal is in pasadena to face number 11ucla at the rose bowl. cal is struggling. a 1-4 record and a ton of injuries and are getting shredded on defense playing lots of underclassmen. head coach knows there will be sunnier days ahead, but maybe
8:49 am
not today. >> the funny thing about this team is in a lot of ways this team has to get better. it has made noticible improvements and it has not carried over to saturday. that's usually the last step. we are ready for it to carry off. we need for it to carry over. these guys have come a long way. >> how about some soccer. the u.s. has already qualified, so this is about getting the roster set. the 77th minute and he finds the corner and the u.s. wins it 2-0. a different story for mexico. a must win game against panama to keep world cup hopes alive and look at that! 85th minute and tied at one and jimenez, the bicycle kick. you can watch that a thousand times. and that's the game winner. it is 2-1 mexico. that is a wrap on morning sports. have a great weekend, everybody. i'm larry beil. >> what a great goal. a lot of people are playing soccer today.
8:50 am
i know a lot of people heading to their kids' games and they will have to bundle up in the morning hours. >> it will take toward the afternoon when we feel warmer. the fog will be burning back within the next hour or so. live doppler 7hd shows that we aren't tracking any rain, but the temperature and the dew point is nearly identical in many areas of the bay except the south bay and the east bay valley where it is clear. you can see that you can't see much. we did see the tower earlier and it is over a thousand feet deep and it is allowing for reduced visibility. 50 in san francisco and the airport delays of nearly an hour here. oakland has been sitting at 53 all morning long. upper 40s with some fog around loss altos as well. 48 in half moon bay and san jose with some sunshine and 48 degrees. so nice and sunny here for much of the santa clara valley, but the temperatures are cool and the conditions are pretty gray from santa rosa to napa and novato. we are out of the 30s. down to 37 earlier in novato.
8:51 am
fairfield at 50 and it is a nice, clear start over into our east bay valleys. mile and a quarter visibility from half moon bay. our friends along the central coast, also monterey, salinas and watsonville experiencing some fog this morning. we are looking at mount tam where it looks nice from above. but it will take the next couple hours until we burn back and see the sunshine. it is tomorrow. we will get the warmer air mass headed our way. and it will stay with us and get even warmer in the days ahead. beach weather is on the horizon. we are talking about 70 at the beach and into the 80s elsewhere around the bay. definitely getting above normal. the reason we are not getting there today is an upper level system we will be pushing through the atmosphere and it will allow for breezy winds and higher elevations and the temperatures to pretty much stay put just in the 60s and the 70s. let's look at the week ahead in san jose. on monday you will climb
8:52 am
another 5 dries and then by tuesday and wednesday we are talking the warmest days of the week, near 80. a slight dropoff on thursday and friday. but it is going to be a dry, warm week ahead with an offshore flow. the offshore flow won't be too strong. but it will be warm enough to really scour out the cloud cuff cuff -- cover and bring warmer winds from the inland valleys. today though 59 with the on shore push in monterey with 80 in yosemite. maybe a few rain drops toward eureka and mount shasta. the temperatures are ranging from the upper 50s with some fog. we will get into sunshine, but it will be cool once again in san francisco at 64 and 69 at san mateo and into the east bay, 69 in oakland. a few degrees shy of the average which is 71 in san jose. on the peninsula we have a little fog now, but it will be brightening up by 10:00 we will see numbers near 60 and about 70 for your high for the art and wine festival in san carlos this afternoon.
8:53 am
tomorrow at candlestick, the niners are hosting the arizona cardinals. midand upper 60s. a very mild day for that game. always good news at candlestick. and the temperatures just go up. we are going to look at not only the dry conditions, but the offshore flow, 70s and 80s with about 70 at our coast. a little unusual to have the marine layer this time of year, but this should be it after this morning. it will be wiped out. >> good to see it and good to see the temperatures in the lower 80s. very nice. next, today's special event to kick off the famed
