jim's doctor recommended xarelto®. like warfarin, xarelto® is proven effective to reduce afib-related stroke risk. but xarelto® is the first and only once-a-day prescription blood thinner for patients with afib not caused by a heart valve problem. that doesn't require routine blood monitoring. so jim's not tied to that monitoring routine. [ gps ] proceed to the designated route. not today. [ male announcer ] for patients currently well managed on warfarin, there is limited information on how xarelto® and warfarin compare in reducing the risk of stroke. xarelto® is just one pill a day taken with the evening meal. plus, with no known dietary restrictions, jim can eat the healthy foods he likes. do not stop taking xarelto®, rivaroxaban, without talking to the doctor who prescribes it as this may increase the risk of having a stroke. get help right away if you develop any symptoms like bleeding, unusual bruising, or tingling. you may have a higher risk of bleeding if you take xarelto® ducts, nsaids or blood thinners. talk to your doctor before taking xarelto® if you have abnormal bleeding.
xarelto® can cause bleeding, which can be serious, and rarely may lead to death. you are likely to bruise more easily on xarelto® aeeding to take longer for bleeding to stop. tell your doctors you are taking xarelto® before any planned medical or dental procedures. before starting xarelto®, tell your doctor about any conditions such as kidney, liver, or bleeding problems. xarelto® is not for patients with artificial heart valves. jim changed his routine. ask your doctor about xarelto®. once a day xarelto® means no regular blood monitoring -- no known dietary restrictions. for more information and savings options, call 1-888-xarelto or visit goxarelto.com.

>> i think it is just amazing and cool to look at and see what you can do with your own two hands. >> a factory isn't the only stem-related place. kim, the brother of tesla's ceo, is about to introduce the kitchen community to northern californian schools. it's a garden where teachers can have outside classes to teach science and math. >> if we can inspire ten out of 200 to have the same level of impact people can have in the technology business, i think we've done our job. >> to top it off, the students were invited to a private screening for the new sci-fi movie. perhaps a best example of then -- the endless possibilities of the high-tech industry. by the way, it only takes a few days to build a tesla. the factory is now making 500 a week. in fremont, lyanne melendez, abc7 news. >> happening today, bay area residents have the chance to get rid of unwanted prescription

valley this morning with 45 in livermore and concord. we are looking at 39 in santa rosa. novato, 37 degrees. so certainly feeling like fall and temperatures from san carlos to livermore are feeling colder. in fact, we are looking at 5 degrees of cooling in hayward. but by this afternoon in hayward, you will be back into the 70s. from our roof camera, highs and clear out there. sunny and mild today. it will be mild for most tomorrow, but the winds are going to kick up. so temperatures won't be as warm certainly by the coast on sunday. then introducing a slight chance of showers mainly from the monterey coast, san jose on monday, but more dramatic temperature drop is what you will notice, as much as 10 degrees cooler. today we are a little bit above normal. we will be dry for the end of the month. halloween thursday, trick-or-treaters. sunny in the afternoon but cool at night. the first system that brought us the higher clouds over the past
couple of days, it is continuing to sink south. so higher pressure continues to bring us a sunny and mild afternoon. we will be looking at an area of low pressure tonight. what that will do, it will increase the pressure gradient, bring gusty winds for the second half of the weekend, manically tomorrow evening. but by more than look how close the rain is. in fact it is right over parts of the bay area. so we are looking at a chance of showers, big time cooling on monday and perhaps snow in the sierra nevada. snow levels down to 5,000 feet. they are anticipating snow for the mountains of southern california. we definitely have changes to begin the week. but today the 80s in sacramento. 82 there. 81 chico. could see an 80 around here. we didn't see yesterday. 68 in monterey. dense fog this morning in southern california. but then 81 degrees for los angeles. so temperatures will be in the upper 60s here. half moon bay, 72. san mateo with 76. in san jose and santa cruz up in
the north bay perhaps an 80-degree temperature. tomorrow for the raiders look for temperatures in the low to mid-60s. a nice afternoon. the look ahead a couple degrees cooler, breezy winds for the second half of the weekend. a slight chance of showers. only 50s and 60s monday. barely any warmup on wednesday. dry thursday and friday. if we see rain it will not help us out too much. >> and we won't see it on halloween so that's kind of good news. >> right. >> thank, lessa. in sports, all three bay area football teams are bat in action today. san jose state hosts wyoming. sixth ranked stanford takes on number 25 oregon state and cal plays at husky stadium. the warriors have one less worry before their opener wednesday night. here's larry beil with the details in this morning's sports. >> good morning.
when steph curry's ankle was still questionable, the warriors signed him to a long-term extension. it paid off big because now he's a budding superstar in the nba. golden state has taken the exact same approach with andrew bogut. the injury-plagued center gets a three-year, extension a few days before the start of a new season. could be worth up to $42 million with incentives. he's been plagued by ankle, elbow and back injuries since they acquired him. $36 million it was an unpopular trade at the time. we saw a glimmer what he can do when he's healthy. the warriors are banking on a lot more of the same going forward. here's general manager bob myers on the decision to lock up bogut, who was entering final year of his contract. >> this is an asset that we didn't want to lose. if it meant betting on that player, we were willing to do that. >> i think, you know, in the market i could probably get more but i think we came to an agreement that was good for both parties.
i had a subpar year numbers wise but i feel like i can help the organization going to the playoffs and i feel like i'm a leader vocally and defensively on this team. that's my main role. >> he's in great shape heading into the season. it's more of a business trip than a tourist vacation but they , the niners, will make sure they see all the sites in london. they play at wimbley stadium. they practiced yesterday at a rugby stadium. for a moment we saw the lighter side of coach jim harbaugh who ran down the list of sightseeing spots they were visiting. >> marble arch, park lane, high park corner, buckingham palace, parliament square, ten downing street, and a square. do you think we were hitting the right spots? >> i think he got them. stanford will be without their wide receiver devin kajust tonight at oregon state. a big loss. kajust emerged as a nice compliment.
toty montgomery in the cashed natural passing attack. he suffered a knee injury and he's not going to be able to go begins the beavers. david shaw knows this will be a difficult road challenge. >> it will be loud, it will be an electric environment. they are playing great football. their fans are outstanding. they know when to cheer, when not to cheer. they will make it hard on us. but the bottom line there are two really good football teams playing in prime time. >> we have a double-header on apc7 today. 12:30 n.c. state taking on number two florida state. and 5:00 penn state facing undefeated ohio state. hope to see you after the game. have a great weekend, everybody. i'm larry beil. >> coming up next, why people around the world will be dancing
here are the winning numbers from last night's $65 million mega-millions draw. 6, 16, 45, 54, 60. nobody correctly picked all six. tuesday night's jackpot grows to $75 million. >> happening today, members of san francisco's evening rotary club will take part in the world record attempt to have the most people dancing simultaneously with michael jackson's thriller. it will go down at 2:00 at the dance loft in the city's dog patch district. the event called thrill the
world is part after worldwide effort to bring people together in dance for charity. san francisco's attempt will benefit the rotary youth leadership awards, which is a three-day leadership camp for teenagers in the bay area. certainly a treat for the senses >> for timing for halloween. that will be great to see. everyone can use their costumes on thursday, as well. >> good dancing weather. >> temperatures a little above average today. maybe two or three degrees above average. that means plenty of sunshine. fog this morning in santa rosa. and 72 san mateo. 77 in concord. perhaps 82 in the livermore valley. 78 in morgan hill. 70 san francisco. cooler, a little breezier tomorrow. we will look for big time cooling on monday. a slight chance of showers. we are dry. still cool come tuesday. dry for halloween, though. >> thank you, lisa. thanks all of you for joining us on the abc7 saturday morning news. abc7 news continues at 8:00.
