temperatures and look at all the temperatures outside currently. 64 in livermore and santa rosa. 63 in san francisco. 65 in concord. you get the point. get away from the bay concord 45. napa 45. these are the cities and the urban centers. you get just away from the concrete an asphalt subtract about 3 or 4 degrees which means for some spots, in pleasanton or dublin, or healdsburg, temperatures in the upper 30s. so bundle up the kids walking to school tomorrow morning. there is a ridge of high pressure which is not going to be the biggest or strong he was we have ever seen. it won't get warm. we'll be in the mid-70s but what it will do very efficiently is take the storm track which has been active spilling into northern california and kind of bend
6:46 pm
that storm track up toward the pacific northwest. a lot of rainfall for alaska, british columbia and pacific northwest. not a lot of rainfall for us because of that blocking ridge. for us, tomorrow, if you are heading into san francisco, 8:00, 9:00 we'll still be in the 50s. 60s by lunchtime beautiful day in san francisco. mid- to upper 60s all afternoon and we'll see filtered sunshine with some cloud cover but very little rain. with one exception, that exception over the weekend. saturday night into sunday morning, some showers will move through. notice you're looking at green on futurecast not the yellow and orangethat we have had with the past several systems. so no heavy rain. just some light rain and the timing is good unless you're out late saturday night. it will begin in the board bay just before midnight but be gone before sunrise through the bay area. so the majority of your weekend when you're up and out and about will be rain-free. highs tomorrow above average. san jose 73. normal 70. concord exactly normal which is 72 for you. and oakland 73 degrees. that's 6 degrees above average. campbell 74. union city 72. beautiful at the beach but
6:47 pm
there is a high surf advisory in effect so don't put your back to the water and make sure you're watching your kids that they put their toes in the water, as well. san ramon 74 tomorrow. vallejo 70. gorgeous in san francisco and sausalito and berkeley and richmond. everybody 70 degrees. novato 73. santa rosa 73. cloverdale 75. your extended forecast, the warmest day will be friday. but nobody hits 80 just 70s. cloudier saturday. that slight chance of a shower sunday morning. and then when that's gone, sunday afternoon will be dry. that's weather. sports next. ,, ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

tonight the raiders. >> if derek carr sold stock in himself, his stock is soaring. he had a game on sunday. needed it to overcome the raiders penalties. he has been named the offensive player of the week. he probably won't throw for 513 next week against the broncos vaunted past defense. it was the 20th time in league history that a quarterback through over half 1,000 yards in a game. he is the franchise record passing cotton davidson who threw for 427 yards during the johnson administration. >> it's crazy. i still think of myself as a little kid fan of the game. i can't believe it. it's like a videogame. your name is up there. is it really yours? so far it doesn't mean anything but i'm sure someday it will.
6:52 pm
>> big weekend at bay area football. 9ers and the saints here and then you got the raiders and the broncos on sunday night. it's been six years since the 49ers tried the mike singletary head coaching experience. and failed miserably. but! singletary's pain ended up being his offensive coordinator's gain. >> so whoever yahoo is, maybe he should come call the plays. >> reporter: mike johnson ended up being the yahoo who replaced jimmy raye. johnson lasted half season in santa clara before jim harbaugh was hired. >> it was an experience that, you know, i valued, one that definitely helped me out as a coach. >> reporter: johnson ended up staying in the bay area and took the head coaching job at king's academy in sunnyvale. johnson has coached in college and the nfl since 1997. so he seemed a little overqualified to go back to high school. athletic director joe m amone thought the same. >> i think during that initial
6:53 pm
interview i stopped several times and said mike, are you sure about this? he showed me his playbook with the 49ers. i mean, it's -- it makes war and peace look small. [ laughter ] >> reporter: with johnson's experience came his son. sophomore mike johnson junior is one of the bay area's most promising young quarterbacks. and it's clear there is no favoritism on the field. >> when you first think of your dad coaching you think it's going to be easier for me, this and that. i'm not going to have to deal with all like this hard stuff and whatever and then you come out here and you're like this isn't anywhere near what i thought it would be. >> i'm a very intense football coach and the expectations and the standards that i place on our football team you have to be careful you don't were them in the car with you when you go home. >> reporter: junior has received offers from several colleges. all the attention is like deja vu for his dad. >> i was compared to john elway
6:54 pm
at a young age and those type of things i'm accustomed to it and i have gone through it. >> mike johnson hurt his shoulder last week. he will misses the section play- offs. but he is only a sophomore. ivan rabb voted preseason all american and before you say, nobody cares, rabb is just the second player in cal history to get that distinction. the first? jason kidd. and jason is putting his money where his mouth is donating a million dollars to the athletic department for scholarship purposes. we have record-breaking stuff on a bay area body of water. >> good night, that is a huge fish! >> ryan reynolds of lake chabot, i couldn't believe this a small mouth bass. he broke a 14-year-old record by two pounds at lake chabot. this is 19 pounds.
6:55 pm
a small mouth. i didn't think that was possible. >> i don't think that's possible. >> i don't. >> anyway, three pounds off the world record. [ laughter ] >> game 7 world series under way right now. everyone waiting to see if joe madden's decision to pitch aroldis chapman last night will backfire. people on twitter were roasting madden you did the manager has a theory about -- but the manager has a theory about that. >> i think there should be two forms of twitter. the positive and negative and you have to choose one. if you choose to be on negative twitter then you're not welcome on positive twitter ever and there nice to be twitter police and the negative dudes you cannot infiltrate the positive people because we are going to kick you out of there very quickly. >> we could all relate to that. my twitter followers for, example, tina thanked me for posting a picture of my ice cream sundae. >> death threat. that's the exclusive. >> she would be positive on twitter but then you have guys
6:56 pm
like oscar, a raider fan who accuses me all the time of seeing the world through 49er glasses. >> they don't even fit. >> they don't even fit. >> kind of john lennon-like. >> i don't know how i'm associated with the 49ers. the raiders are on channel 5. we are the official home of the oakland raiders. >> correct. >> stop wearing those glasses, then, dennis. [ laughter ] >> take them off. >> but we want the raiders to do well. >> of course we do. >> i'm a raider guy. come on. >> wear your raider glasses tomorrow. >> i'll have them on tomorrow. [ laughter ] >> i hope so. >> come on. you guys have got some negative tweets. >> oh, yeah. the weather guy, never. >> all of us positive. >> mean tweets. >> like water off a duck's back. for news throughout the evening, latest news and weather, always on ,,,,,,
