fridge. >> lots of cream cheese. >> reporter: brian will be up most of the day and night making 400 individual flan. last year he celebrated his 39th birthday. >> i thought now would be a good time to do self-reflection. and one of the things that stood out to me is i realized all the achievements and successes were not possible without the generosity and kindness of others. because so many people have helped me along this journey. and i decided for my last year of my 20s, i wanted to give back by doing 30 acts of kindness. >> so for one of his first 30 acts of kindness, the flan brian is making he will deliver to every fire station in the city of san jose where his brother lives. that's 32 in all. brian says he knew right away food would be a big part of these acts because that's what he learned growing up. >> i attribute it to my mother, right.

flan to every firefighter. the key is to do something. because one act can lead to hundreds, and it can start a chain reaction of kindness. >> reporter: and if brian is right, and there are those who will follow in his footsteps, the world will indeed be a much sweeter place. garvin thomas, nbc bay area news. >> and that is a delicious idea. okay. the warriors as in the basketball team are ready to make some music. team is launching its own music label, and today on twitter, the dubs announced first signing include juice, georgia and muldrew. they have already released a sing well k-pop star bam bam. remember he performed at chase center in april. from saskatchewan to the south bay and ultimately to the hall of fame. after nearly a quarter century in the nhl, patrick marleau is retiring. the sharks legend officially made the announcement today. he played 21 of his 23-year career with the sharks.

meteorologist jeff ranieri. outside still kind of gloomy and frigid. >> yeah, it's been a wide mix for us. eventually, we're going get all of this out of here. today there has been plenty of sunshine. and then a few isolated pockets producing some rainfall. what we're dealing with is the same system that really started hanging out across the west. now we're seeing the circulation around, the counterclockwise hoping to drive down instability through parts of the bay area. we do have some isolated thunderstorms. let's take you up to the north bay. it's definitely a little bumpy to the north of santa rosa. closer view shows multiple lightning strikes. our computer also picking up on small hail. that's what the purple color. you're really gets hit hard in calistoga right now. and then this would be pushing off towards st. helena. i think it will hold off in some parts through 6:05 tonight. you can see over clayton, also
some rainfall there. likely holds up into west hartley through 5-40 tonight. as we roll through this evening, i do see a slight chance here. still some spotty activity around 7:00 through the east bay and the north bay. then after that, we should be on a drying trend here at 11:00 tonight. and that would also set us up with some dry weather as we head through tomorrow morning's forecast. what about those temperatures? we are still in the freezer when it comes to the morning temps for may. down to 39 again tomorrow and the tri-valley. south bay right here at 40. i've got it starting off at 38 in the north bay and the east bay at 42. as you roll through the day tomorrow, because that system that's producing thunderstorms right now, that's going to start to kick out of here. temperatures will begin to warm up. and you can see the result is about 10 degrees warmer for a lot of places. we'll be up to 69 in milpitas. over to the east bay, back up to 72 in antioch. 71 concord.
still cool by the bay. 64 in oakland. 61 in san mateo. let's take it up to san francisco. 61 this the mission. and for the marina, 54. and the north bay, 65 in ukiah. 68 in sonoma. so tomorrow things start to warm up, but i really see it starting to crank up and in a big way. once we hit friday, saturday and sunday from the area of high pressure. it's going take the severe thunderstorm track, move it off to the north. so the result of that will mean in san francisco up to 69 on friday. saturday 72, and dry weather as we head through the next seven-day forecast at this point. it will be a little bit windy here next two days in san francisco. winds generally 15 to about 25 miles per hour. look at the inland valley forecast. from 63 tomorrow there up to 80 on saturday. 87 on sunday. we're going up and big way there as we head to that weekend forecast. >> it looks nice by the time we get to saturday. >> exactly. we got to get there. >> thank you, jeff. well, netflix could be
