if you plan to head around the bay today, plenty of sunshine this afternoon. a lot of 60s in the south bay 50s coastside but breezy there. east bay temperatures in the 60s this afternoon. then inside the bay you will feel the winds into san francisco about 62 degrees. 59 in daly city. and 69 degrees in santa rosa. as we look toward the next couple of days, we'll cool things down for the weekend but keeping things dry. that could change though as we head in toward tuesday. there's a slight chance of some showers. and by the way, a sunrise today 6:50, sunset actually happening this afternoon at 4:58. could you believe it? >> happens every afternoon. >> i know, it's getting earlier and earlier. thank you. happening today, commercial crab fishing season is officially under way just in time for the holiday season. >> and for the first time in a long time, there won't be any pricing issues. zeke a commercial crab fisherman joins us now from pier 45 in san francisco. good morning, zeke. >> good morning, michelle. >> well, last season was one of
the best years in a long time. what can we expect this year? >> this year, we are actually expecting to see less crab. that's part of the natural cycle of the crab. it runs in 4- to 7-year patterns of peaks and valleys. last year we were expecting it to go down and ended up with a record season. but i think we'll see less crab this year but still quite a bit. the good news is the quality is just spectacular. people buying crab will see some really nice product. >> they look delicious. you had some pricing issues last year but not so much this year. what can we expect to pay at the store? >> reporter: well, i think the prices will probably be anywhere from depending on the stores if they are doing price leaders or not anywhere from $5.99 up to $8.99 a pound.
>> how soon can we expect the fresh crab to hit the market? >> i think a lot of this will depend on just the supply. if there's a lot of crab, then obviously, the stores are going to be anxious to move them. and the price will be lower. if there's not many, the price will likely be higher. it's traditional supply and demand. >> bring it on, ze ke, thank you. >> you're welcome. thank you. suspended miami dolphins player richie incognito accused of bullying his teammate says it all came from a place of love. the steps he is taking to get back on the field and recoup the money he on the sidelines. >> and i'm dennis o'donnell. coming up, don't go anywhere. we have two incredible finishes one for the warriors, one for the sharks. see them in a moment. ,,

that mayor rob ford used graphic sexual language while denying reports about his advances towards a former staff member. that came just hours after fresh allegations of drug use from former staffers. ford still isn't shying away from the spotlight. he will reportedly begin hosting a tv show on monday with his brother doug a toronto city councilman. a student was attacked in a bay area high school possibly for her sexual orientation. just two days ago, a transgender teen at hercules high school complained to school officials she was being harassed by students and now administrators say the teen initiated a fight with the group of girls after being taunted on campus. >> i just heard screaming and then everybody ran out of my class and then there was like a bunch of teachers that tried to stop it. >> none of the teens involved was in class yesterday. earlier this week, an "agender"
