the low 50s. that means if the temperatures gets down to 50, fog will form. these are the highs from today, certainly warmer than they were yesterday. highs tomorrow that are coming up again. this is the perfect weather pattern for our parade on wednesday. with temperatures on wednesday perhaps into the low 80s with some of the warm spots. mostly sunny and warmer for you tomorrow. fire danger, the winds aren't going to ramp up that much. a dry pattern continues, earlier or late last week i was talking about a chance for showers this week. but the computer models have pulled those out. what we're looking at is cool overnight lows. if you get down to this temperature you're going to have fog formation. 45 in napa, 49 in fairfield. just so you know, if the dewpoint is 45, the temperature can't actually get below that because fog forms, once fog forms it actually warms the atmosphere. the forecast and jet stream to the north, rain stays there,
big weather system in the gulf of alaska. the thing is generating big wind and big swellless. mavericks will break tomorrow, it'll break again on wednesday and maybe thursday as well. wednesday should be the biggest day for us. on land, mostly sunny and a warmer trend, temperatures in the 70s and 80s. beautiful bay area pattern. when you get to the parade, news chopper 2 is going to be out wednesday. lots of oranges out there, great visibility. i hope the rest of the country is watching because this is our city, outstanding weather for the parade. we have plenty of sun for you. i'm not worried about the air quality, maybe a few showers into the weekend. >> look at the weekend. >> outstanding, almost 80. >> fantastic, thank you bill. >> thank you, bill. the coalition for justice for oscar grant held a peaceful demonstration outside the ktvu studios here at jack lindon
squares this evening. the activists say they are upset because we broadcast a jailhouse interview with former bart police officer mehserle. they say they feel the interview created unwarranted sympathy for mehserle who is scheduled to be sentenced on friday for the shooting death of oscar grant. ktvu stands by our coverage of our story which has included interviews with members of the grant family. the community's response to the trial and legal issues surrounding the case. >> history was made right here
well, what's going on? >> a little something, first ever world series championship for san francisco. not to forget 1989 and the oakland a's. but san francisco hard at it, celebrating party and what a victory it was. they cleaned through the play offs with 11 wins and five losses. the latest one, the one that helped provide it. tim lincecum sporting that bow tie look. he struck out the side in the
third on his way to a beautiful 8th inning performance with 10 strike outs along the way. but it was still against cliff lee, scoreless 7th inning. two out, two on edgar renteria ticket to ride gone to left field. two run shot as ron washington elected to go after rowan. lincecum makes it a little too good. not so fast giant fans, a little edgy. 3-1 but bryan little wilson will be able to come in as lincecum came down. no less than a round for bryan wilson as he comes in and sets the rangers down in order in the bottom of the ninth and there it is. the first ever world series victory for the san francisco giants. done in fine fashion in five
games against the texas rangers. edgar renteria is the mvp and down following the giants throughout the entire postseason, in the texas fred inglis he's still holding up. how are you holding up as a matter of fact fred? >> great, mark. everything is great here. it made me think a little bit about this starting line up tonight. there were four giants who had world series wins. juan uribe, aaron rowan, pat burrell and the world series mvp edgar renteria. but there were other veterans that never tasted the postseason before. guys like aubrey huff. >> you never know what they're thinking. what they're doing. >> what will be the moment that will always ignite the moment of this night and series? >> for this night, i think it's
the performance that timmy went out there. obviously edgar's hit. i was standing out there and as he hit it, we didn't know if we were going to get enough of it. when he found the gap, that was an unbelievable moment for us. >> yeah, an incredible opportunity for the veterans and how about these young guys like 21-year-old pitcher madison baumgartner. they got caught up in the middle of season. they win a world series win. sure sounds easy when you're that young. some veterans will tell them, get used to think but don't get too used to this because there's still a long history for this team. is it too early to talk about a victory next year. >> i think it is way too early. you have to have the parade at least. get on home safety. parade on wednesday and it is
