12:15 pm
>> we are journalism majors. >> he can do the math, lauren? >> guys i think we'll hit that number here very very shortly. especially if you could liam doing the dishes for $1000. he's a heck of a cleaner. folks throughout the bay area the fog is beginning to break up outside. we'll see more sunshine in the afternoon but staying a bit on the hazy side as it looks like the high pressure weakening somewhat. we're seeing more sun though now in some of the valley. 65 degrees in concord, 56 degrees and still cool in oakland, 64 in livermore, 55 degrees in san francisco. as we head throughout the afternoon we'll see a little more sunshine, not as warm as yesterday and staying hazy, and then tonight, low clouds and fog going to make return again tonight and a cooling trend likely to continue right into the weekend, so doesn't look like we'll see any rain, high pressure still holding the jet stream a little bit to the north, so that's where most of the storm systems will move but they creep a little bit closer an as they do we'll see cooler air working its way in our direction, a few more clouds and it will be breezy at times
12:16 pm
on friday into the weekend as well. with that in mind i think if you're headed around the state you'll see sunshine in the central valley. 74 in fresno, 72 sacramento and 59 in lake tahoe, and around the bay we'll see the temperatures up in the 60s maybe low 70s well inland, out toward the coastline still a little fog and low clouds and mixture of sun there and temperatures mainly in the 50s and low 60s. now overnight tonight it will be chilly in spots especially in the north bay valley just hovering above the 30s there about 40 in santa rosa, 41 in the nappa valley and 45 in san jose so getting a little chilly tonight. by day tomorrow again the temperatures will be down a few more degrees, and it looks like we'll see more clouds and breezy conditions on saturday, by sunday though looks like the temperatures will warm up a few more degrees and more clouds start to work their way back in our direction on tuesday and wednesday. by the way, sunsets tonight at 4:59. sunrise tomorrow 6:50 in the morning. okay, let's send it back to michelle, she's in our phone
12:17 pm
bank michelle are the phones ringing? are we going to get to $100,000? >> i hope so, lawrence. we're very close. we just did the math and checked it twice at $98, 183 so come on, we want to get to that $100,000 mark very soon, keep those phones ringing 1-888-5- helps-u. okay, so remember, that all of this money is going to the victims of the typhoon. these victims really need your help and we're going to talk about survivor right now. of course that's the hit cbs show. i did talk to the host and he was telling us about some of the people there he met. he absolutely loves the people in the philippines, they actually filmed several seasons there and he said he was talking about how little they had and now, that is just all gone. >> however bad you think we might have it here and certainly we have people in the u.s. that need support. it's know where close to what
12:18 pm
is, what most of these island communities are like. like i said earlier i'm not kidding when i say it's a tin roof, some wood and then a clothes line with five shirts and i would see, i would drive past the same little areas. it's the same five shirts day after day. on one hand you could argue they don't need a lot to live a happy life but on the other hand, when what little they have is wiped out, now you have a big problem. >> and a popular survivor contestant is also helping cbs raise money today for the victims. >> we see the tears and the kids and the bodies, so what can i do to give back, to help with that situation and for me? this is it. if i could ask people to pick up the phone, make a donation, contribute, that's the least of what i can do. >> and that is survivor contestant phillip shepherd talking about why he's standing up and helping the victims of typhoon haiyan and remember, you can help the victims too.
12:19 pm
we need these volunteers to be busy here, just pick up the phone, 1-888-5-helps-u. please pick up the phone and call. we will be right back. is,,
