new this morning, the rents in san francisco are growing at a high rate of speed. average rent for units in the apartment complexes broke records in the third quarter topping $3,000 a month. that's up 21% from last year. oakland and san jose are also seeing steep increases. experts say the surge is being driven in part by an influx of well-paid tech workers. yep. i know all about it. i know all about it. uh-huh. 8:47. temperatures, fog -- >> temperatures are cool. we have some fog and we have some sun for you all in your saturday forecast. in fact, that changes as soon as tomorrow. where we will see the wind pick up, so we'll add that element, too. live doppler 7 hd is showing plainly clear conditions, but look closely and there's a built bit of fog along the san mateo coast. here's a look from the tan camera and it is laying pretty
8:48 am
low anywhere from around 500 to 700 feet in the span of the golden gate bridge. 50 in san francisco. 48 in san carlos. 47 in pacifica and half-moon bay. san jose, nice and sunny with temperatures here pretty comfortable, but it is cool up in the north bay. still in the 30s for santa rosa. 38 with 43 in novato. and temperatures responding in livermore at 48 degrees, but just 44 in concord. so there it is. the span is about 220 feet. and the towers sit at about 746 feet. so i would say about 600 feet right there at the marine layer. we'll look for that as they continue to burn back to the shoreline. and temperatures today will be on the mild side. warm if you're inland. tomorrow we're looking at increasing winds throughout the day. so it won't be as warm at the coast. then a chance for showers for your monday. temperatures as much as 10 degrees cooler. dry for halloween on thursday. and if we do see any rain at
8:49 am
all, we're going to look for light amounts of rain. but this system, not the rainmaker, it sits offshore and brought higher clouds that will continue to sink to the south. so there's high clouds in southern california. next system coming in to play late tonight will increase the pressure gradient. the wind in the bay area. and as it flies down from the canadian rockies, we have cold air associated with it. so looking at snow levels of 5,000 feet in the sierra nevada with some rain and snow there. and it will continue to press southward bringing snow to mammoth and possibility of showers here locally. so it is going to be kind of a raw day out there on monday. enjoy today where temperatures still will be plenty warm from sacramento, chico, low 80s. 84 in fresno into the low 80s in southern california. so we will be in the 60s today from half-moon bay, san francisco, 68. a couple degrees warmer over in the east bay. 75 in fremont. but 80 by the delta. so these numbers will be slightly warmer, but don't get
8:50 am
used to it. tomorrow afternoon, still looks nice for the raiders with temperatures in the low to mid-60s. and the accuweather forecast, today the warmest out of the next seven with 70s and 80s near the bay, 60s at the coast. tomorrow cooler, but still sunshine. as much as five degrees cooler. and by monday, boy, lots of cooling with a slight chance of showers. not much to recover on tuesday, we'll have to wait until the end of the month, but very little rain in the extended outlook. looking dryer and mild. >> i'm not looking past the end of the week. we have to get to halloween. thank you, lisa. in sports, all three bay area football teams back in action. at 4:00 san jose state hosts wyoming at spartan stadium. oregon state is at 7:30 on our sister network at espn. and at 8:00 p.m., cal plays washington at husky stadium. meanwhile, the warriors have one less worry before wednesday night's season opener against the lakers. here's abc 7 news supporter
8:51 am
director larry beale with 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 approach with andrew bogen. he gets a three-year $36 million extension a few days before the start of a new season. could be worth up to $42 million with incentives. bogen has been plagued we elbow, ankle and back injuries since he was acquired for monte ellis. but we saw a glimmer of what he can do when he's healthy. late last year, that was, but now the warriors are banking on going forward. they are looking at the decision to lock up bogen entering the last year of his contract. >> this was an asset we didn't want to lose. so if it meant betting on that player, we were willing to do that. >> i can probably get more, but

i think we came to an agreement that was fair for both parties. i mean, numberswise, i feel like i'm a leader defensively on this team. that's my main role. >> and he's in great shape heading into the new season. it's more of a business trip than a tourist vacation, but the niners will meet jackson tomorrow at wimbley stadium. they practiced yesterday at a rugby stadium. for a moment, we saw the lighter side of coach jim harbough who ran down the sightseeing spots they were visiting in london. >> to marble arch, park lane, high park corner, buckingham palace, and the square. do you think we're hitting the right spots? >> i think he got them. stafford will be without their
8:53 am
wide-receiver tonight. that's a big loss. he suffered a knee injury last week against ucla so he won't be able to go against the beavers. david shaw knows this is a difficult road challenge. >> it will be loud, it will be an electric environment. they are playing great football and their fans are outstanding. they know when to cheer and when not to cheer. they will try to make it hard on us, but the bottom line is they are two really good football teams playing in primetime. >> we have a doubleheader here on abc, nc state taking on florida state. then at 5:00 state, penn state versus ohio state. after the game, hope to see you then. have a great weekend, everybody. i'm larry beale. next, though, you didn't miss halloween. we'll tell you why people around the world will be dancing simultaneously today to a michael jackson classic.
