[ laughter ] >> russell just turned 69. he and his wife of 44 years ellen have no intention of slowing down. and you can nominate your local hero for a jefferson award online anytime you want at kpix.com/hero. >> they had some pretty impressive moves, i'll say. >> i like the music. >> i like the music, too. looked like they were having fun. paul deanno is having a lot of fun. he is at a teeball game in pittsburg. how's it going? >> reporter: yeah. [ laughter ] i love baseball. i love watching kids play baseball. and the best baseball to watch as a spectator teeball! these kids are having a great time. dodgers in the field, a's up to bat. let's see what happens. we have the coach pitching a little bit, a little underhand pitch the kids getting a little instruction on hitting.
it's so great seeing the most pure baseball perhaps there is. five and six years old, out there having a good time. we have now better weather. it's a little cloudier not as warm out here in pittsburg. it was 94. we're now down to 86 degrees in pittsburg but a very warm day today. and a couple of things i want to point out. number one, oakland you hit a high of 91 today. a record high for downtown oakland. san jose 93. i really want to focus on that 90 though in san francisco. it was two halloweens ago the last time that we were this warm in san francisco. october 2, 2012. the last time we were in the 90s officially in san francisco we did it again today. tomorrow will not be as warm. but still well above normal. these are your current temperatures outside. as you hear the parents cheer a good hit by the a's! san jose 88 degrees. oakland 87. livermore 90 right now. santa rosa 85. san francisco 85 degrees. we'll cool off tonight but not down to what is normal. we normally get down to the 40s and 50s.
tonight 50s and 60s. san jose 60. fremont 60. livermore upper 50s. san francisco only dropping down 58 degrees overnight tonight. as for why this is happening, it's a big ridge of high pressure offshore winds because the ridge is centered to our north giving us an east wind. the ocean sitting at 57 degrees but it doesn't matter when the with -- when the wind is coming out from the east and pushing to the west. it will change when we get a west wind. low pressure will get here friday shoving that ridge down. when that happens we get the onshore back and it won't be as warm after one more hot day tomorrow. we're clear and mild tonight. one more warm to hot day tomorrow. friday cooler by 10 degrees and cooler and cloudier this weekend. highs tomorrow morgan hill back to the 90s. 91. san mateo 87. half moon bay a high of 78 degrees tomorrow. not as warm as today but nice at the beach. antioch, pittsburg, 94 again. dublin 91. pleasant hill in the 90s.
sausalito beautiful sunshine high of 79. san leandro 83. sonoma 87. up north we find cloverdale with a high of 93 degrees and lakeport 88 degrees with mainly sunny skies. here is your extended forecast. mainly sunny skies with highs in the 90s tomorrow inland but look at the change on friday. mainly sunny 10 degrees cooler. 10 degrees cooler again on saturday. highs inland mid-70s by saturday. even cooler on sunday with widespread morning cloud cover and a chance of a couple of morning showers on monday up in the north bay. so much cooler next week. one more hot day coming up tomorrow. we'll bring you back out live. the a's are still up to ba here's the pitch! oh, he hits it down the third baseline, seven kids come at it. the throw it first is -- oh!! bobble it! i think it caught it in time. i call him out. we'll see what they say. no official replay like they have in major league baseball. having fun out here in pittsburg. sports next.

kings to start off this series. now if sharks want a date with anaheim, they will have to win this must-win game, game 7. now, tonight niemi will get the start instead of stalock. he started monday night after niemi was pulled midway through game five. despite losing three, san jose is feeling confident heading into a winner-take-all game at the tank. >> we talked about having home ice. actually throughout the year. the difference that it may have made last year. and how you get here, uhm, whether we take the first three and then get the next three or we trade games all the way through, we're at game 7. and that's all that really matters. and one game for all the marbles. >> the sharks will need to get their top three forwards going tonight. pavelski, thornton, couture combined for one game in the last three games compared to 11 in san jose's three wins. now, the kings will have no problems playing the villain role tonight but they want the
sharks fans to get a little creative. >> i just can't wait to get it goes. it's unbelievable atmosphere in that arena. you know, when we come on the ice they are going to be booing us like crazy right off the bat, gets the goosebumps going and gets you excited for the game and gets you excited to hopefully beat the team in that rink. >> like that beat l.a. stuff? >> it's whatever. i don't think it's the best chant i have ever heard. [ laughter ] >> some guys like it because it's so ridiculous almost. >> not even a good chant. [ laughter ] >> there are two other game 7s tonight in the nhl. first flyers and the rangers. daniel car sill low who was a healthy scratch in game 6 gets new york on the board and they beat the flyers 2-1 to advance to the second round where they will face the penguins. to the nba now. the warriors hope to play in game 7 of their own this weekend but first they will
need to take care of game 6. the clippers beat the warriors last night to take a 3-2 series lead. and nobody had a bigger bounce- back game than deandre jordan. the l.a. center who was scoreless in game 4's blowout loss set a new play-off career high with 25 points and 18 rebounds. >> he called me or text me right after, you know, we got back to l.a. and said that that wasn't me and i will be back. and i didn't know he meant "that." but, uhm, i'm going to make sure he texts me tonight. you know, that would be great. >> i look at it if we tighten up the mistakes that we made, uhm, and we like the clippers we are one, one game away, one win away from forcing game 7. to the diamond. a's pitcher aj griffin will miss the rest of the year after tommy john surgery earlier today. griffin has been sidelined since the end of spring training and joins derek parker
on the shelf with season ending injuries. now, an odd story for this wednesday. florida state quarterback james winston was caught stealing crab legs from a store. he also plays baseball from the seminoles. he is suspended indefinitely from the team. the jersey may be different but the name on the back is still the same for donte whitner the former 49er safety who signed with the browns in off season has decided against legally changing his name to donte hitner. >> i didn't want to go through changing like credit cards and mortgages and cars and -- they want me to do all this stuff. i can't sign all this paperwork again. >> but you considered it. i considered it until he told me i had to go through so many documents and sign all these papers and change everything off for one letter change, rather not. >> it's easier to stay as whitner. a historical note for you.
it was 20 years ago today that jamie baker scored the game winning goal for the sharks in game 7 against the detroit red wings and so in this case, the sharks are hoping that history repeats itself again this time against the l.a. kings. reporting live at the s.a.p. center, andrea nakano, back to you. >> all right. very important game. >> one of those games where a win erases everything bad instantly. >> got to the do it. sending good vibes. for news throughout the evening the latest news and weather are always on our website, kpix.com. and on our facebook page. >> our next newscast at 10:00 on the cw, cw 44/cable 12. check us out there. and you can see us right back here on kpix 5 at 11:00. facebook anytime. you can tweet us anytime. we'll tweet you back. captions by: caption colorado firstname.lastname@example.org i was told there would be cake. get a free quote at progressive.com.
