plenty of sunshine and very mild temperatures. after this warm pattern tomorrow, we are tracking not one, but two chances for storms. we'll have the full forecast coming up. you can see why residents of this home won't be able to live here for a while. a huge tree fell on lee valley in mill valley this afternoon. firefighters tell us no one was home when it happened. >> as far as we know at this point, just older tree. possibly dead, rotted. no significant wind. we live in a forest, and there is no way to avoid it other than early detection of a dead or hazardous tree. >> pg&e turned off the natural gas and electricity as a precaution. tuesday we could see more candidates drop out of the race for the white house. coming up at 9:00, the controversial comments made by donald trump today tt has opponents on both parties on the attack. the falcon 9 lodge was a go, but scrubbed at the last second.

showing you partly to mostly cloudy out there. we are dry. underneath those clouds, we're still rather mild right now. temperatures across the board, you notice we're all sitting nice in the 50s currently. tonight with those clouds overhead, numbers are going to stay pretty close to where we are right now, in the mid-40s across many spots. we'll see fog developing for your monday morning. already seeing it developing right now in the live look from the golden gate bridge camera. first thing on monday areas of fog. some of those pockets of fog could be rather dense. by the afternoon, the fog is out of here. nothing but total sunshine. you do notice by 4:00 in the afternoon, we're nice and mild once again with most spots getting into the 70s. highs for your monday, 74 in concord. mild 73 oakland. comfortable 70 in downtown san francisco. san jose up to 76 degrees. santa rosa, a mild high of 74. as we take a look at the week ahead for oakland specifically, monday, tuesday and wednesday we're sitting in the 70s. rather mild. you notice the second half of
the accuweather forecast, noticeable cooldown back into the 60s. that cooldown comes with two chances of rain. ranking our storms all season long from 1 to 5. 1 is light. to give you an idea what to expect with each storm. first on thursday morning, this is a 1. a really light storm. you notice the north bay going to be the, quote unquote, jackpot, most areas you can see are going to pick up less than .10 of an inch of moisture. as we head into thursday morning, you do note, here comes the cold front. it's a really light shower out there. but as it tries to push onshore, it's going to encounter a lot of dry air. the dry air is really going to quickly eat away at this storm system. it looks like the heaviest rain amounts will be in the north bay, and the lightest rain amounts will be in the south bay right around san jose, where i think a few spots could pick up less than .10 of an inch of moisture.
then we're going to track a stronger system. we'll jump ahead into next saturday night, sunday morning, you notice the pockets of yellow, indicating the heavier showers. and the strong winds associated with this storm system. so right now, the early call on this next weekend storm, looks to be a 2. moderate storm, really the effects will be felt sunday morning. total rainfall could be rather widespread. from 1/2 an inch to 1 1/2 inches of rain. we'll fine-tune the details. but something we're watching in the next seven days. tomorrow we have the morning fog. nice afternoon. lots of sunshine. mild. that mild pattern sticks with us by tuesday and wednesday. thursday, that cooldown comes with a light shower. from 1 on the impact scale. friday, mainly sunny day. saturday increasing clouds. sunday we're tracking the breezy and rainy storm with a 2 on the impact scale. could be a soaker of a storm the next seven days. thank you so much, drew.

birdie this for a two-shot lead over sergio garcia. coming through in a clutch is tougher. consecutive bogeys on 16. tying scott. you notice he's using a short putter. first tour victory since 2014. sergio gets a nice check for coming in second yet again for $700,000. with hunter pence nursing a sore achilles, a chance to remind ourselves about parker. parker became the first giants since willy mays in '61 with at least three homers in the same game. parker was going to get a long look anyway in the spring because the giants seem to be in need of outfielders. but the pence injury makes this a little more necessary. >> great shape. b.p., you see him.
he's doing his thing. he looks good. >> i can't say enough about these guys. they've been there for me since day one, helping me out in any way they can, any questions i've had. i want to help make a difference this year. i want to be a part of a team that wins the world series. so it's exciting. it starts here. giants looking for outfielders with power and parker may be the guy. thank you so much, larry. in honor of black history month, we're using our instagram feed to celebrate the people making a difference where you live and around the world. today we recognize soul city movement founded in capetown, south africa, by bay area photographer jessica cross. soul city movement provides opportunities for artists of all ages. and we have more information on our abc 7 news b
