ivanka's stuff after nordstrom dropped ivanka's clothing line. it violated a rule, staff members are not allowed to promote their products for profit. trump did it, so why not? oprah? oprah commented on the idea that you don't need government experience to be elected president, but in the end o said no, she won't run. as for her fans, they are taking to twitter asking her to run in 2020. >> she might just change her mind. now from the red carpet to the doghouse, the two accountants responsible for the best picture plunders, they're not coming back. martha ruiz and brian cohen are seen here before sunday's oscars, which ended as you know. the result was la la land,

to continue paying for the next 10 months. >> why should i have to pay 50( for a month for a dog that isn't around any more? >> that's a good question. >> in the eyes of the law, animals are chattels, they're property. and you're buying basically property insurance. >> that means everything is governed by the policy. collette couldn't find her contract, it states even in the event of death or loss of a pet, you still have to pay the entire membership fee or the full cost of the care the pet received. after the response team got involved, banfield waived their policy and allowed collette to cancel with no additional charges. when weighing her next pet insurance policy, she will surely read the fine print. >> looking back, it's not the best decision we probably could have made for her. >> if you're considering pet insurance, shop around. different companies have different prices and different plans you can weigh against your specific needs.

skies. peninsula 45. and the south bay 42. 39 for the average in marin, napa county. awesome weather for tomorrow. there's a few spots expected to hit close to 70 in the south bay, this is one of them. 69 in morgan hill, also close to 70 in east san jose. the same thing for los gatos. downtown san jose at 68. we'll make it feel comfortable out there, when it kicks up under the sunny skies. 65 in vallejo. 68 in danville, and 67 expected in freemont. we have 59 expected at half moon bay. 63 in sang mateo, and town toward palo alto 66. definitely not close to 70 here, a beautiful day in the mission at 61. for the north bay, we will go close to 70 here in napa. also the same thing in santa
rosa, mill valley, slightly cooler and 62 degrees. the only side effect is the pollen. pine trees are aggravating, so if you're sniffling and sneezing lately, it could be the pine trees as grass, mold and weeds all remain low. we have rainfall coming our way by this weekend. not a big storm system, dropping down from the north, doesn't have a ton of moisture with it, as you'll see here, by sunday's forecast, we'll see a tenth to a half inch possible. that half inch amount is likely up into marin and sonoma counties. let's get you to the interior valleys, stays mild with the mid to upper 60s over the next two days. we drop down to 59 on saturday. chance of rain by the afternoon, by sunday we get the rainfall moving on in. if you have plans for the weekend. it's going to be saturday morning, right up until the noon hour. that's the time to get outside and do whatever you have to do. >> we'll pick you up saturday

>> the nhl trade deadline is today.sharks eye the playoffs, meet yannick hanson. they acquired him from the canucks for a prospect and a draft pick. he's a 30-year-old right winger who has six goals this season. leading women in various sports was held last night in san francisco. >> elevating the conversation about gender in sports. reps from the a's, giants, warriors and sharks, took 35r9 in a panel discussion before an audience of more than 100. it was moderated by joan ryan and it centered around the upcoming csn bay area documentary, tom boy. for ryan, having the town hall discussions is vital and alarming. >> i just thought, seriously? oh, my god, are we still doing this? and the answer is yes, we need to still do it. it is disappointing to me, i
have to be totally honest with you. i thought we'd be way further down the road with this. tom boy debuts at 8:00 on march 10th. coming up at 11:00, what do you do when you can't trust the water coming from your fawcett? is it safe to drink? why thousands of californians don't have safe drinking water. the last word goes to jeff ranieri. >> rainfall coming our way this weekend. as you'll see in that extended forecast. it will be dry here, and mild. by friday a little cooler 66. saturday 59 with a chance of rain in the afternoon. we'll see our rainfall accumulation, a tenth to a half inch possible. >> is it my allergies, everyone's sneezing? >> it is. >> it's getting up there. >> thanks for joining us at 6 0 6:00.
