the puc meeting if they continue to press for bailing out pg&e. >> reporter: so things do move very slowly here at the puc. i'll give you an example. today the commissioners voted on a series of safety reforms for pg&e to implement. now these safety reforms again voted on today are the result of the san bruno explosion in 2010. so while there may be change, it probably isn't going to happen any time soon unless maybe the legislature or a ballot measure gets involved. live in san francisco, melissa caen, kpix5. >> thank you. we have breaking news now on the storm watch. survivors of the camp fire are dealing with a new problem, flash floods in the burn zone. >> crews spent the day rescuing people from homes as floodwaters swept through parts of butte county. our ken bastida is joining us with a closer look at some of those water are pling ou r s led s ever tt them to eir

6:33 pm
details. >> we first landed on the moon nearly 50 years ago and we haven't been back since 1972, but today nasa says that will change. nasa is partnering with nine private aerospace companies to build robotic landers. these companies will design and build rovers to explore the surface. the goal is to get science and technology experiments to the moon as soon as possible. nasa says the companies will compete to deliver those experiments and arrange their own rocket rides. however, the ultimate goal stretches far beyond the moon. >> we're going to the moon. we're going to retire risk. we're going to improve capability and technology and ultimately we want to take it all the way to mars. >> the project will act as a test bed for future flights to mars. nasa's partners include well known companies like lockheed martin and some that many have never even heard of like orbit beyond and moon express. a uc berkeley researcher told kpix the partnerships are in

6:38 pm
>> because girls play basketball, too, and it's not any more important for boys than girls. >> reporter: so three weeks ago riley wrote there letter to the head of the company, not the president or ceo, the real head of the company stefan curry himself. >> i hope you can work with underarmour to change because girls want to rock the curry 5's too. >> reporter: this morning she got a handwritten response from steph saying the small sizes had all been labeled for boys, but he was working to correct that. he offered her a pair of curry 5's and to be first in line for the 6's and invited riley to join him for a special celebration on international women's day in march. >> it cemented to me that he's my all time favorite athlete. >> and his wife is a cook. >> yeah. >> reporter: the letter may have been a long shot, but

office showing an officer pointing to a double rainbow in the sky. paul, that's a lot different than the thunder and lightning i woke up to this morning. >> kind of had a florida feel to our weather earlier today where it got sunny, then it poured, got sunny again, a little hail, a little thunder and lightning. we had very unsan francisco- like weather today because we had a very unsan francisco-like thing happen with our weather. we'll talk about why in a second. it is raining lightly in fremont and heavier showers over the diablo range. looking north and west for anything new, i'm not seeing it. this might be it and showers moving through the east bay and south bay now. not done in the sierra, winter storm warning through 4 a.m. tomorrow. that includes lake tahoe. snow level 6,000 feet. may get additional snowfall if you add up everything from today between 9 and 13 inches of snow. 50s outside. it will get chilly tonight because skies begin to clear,

san jose 56, livermore 53, 48 redwood city, 52 san francisco, 45 in the tri-valley. let's go to martinez for our microclimate forecast. tomorrow we dry out, much calmer weather in martinez, 59 degrees. saturday morning not a storm, but a rain chance. we'll have some rain in the morning gone by afternoon, high 57 degrees. what happened today? we don't do what we did today that often because typically the center of the storm, the most unstable part of the storm, rarely moves right over the bay area. usually we get a front draping south of the actual storm. the storms usually go into oregon or british columbia or washington state. this time the storm said i'm going to california, too. so we got the cold core low pressure area which destabilized the atmosphere. so yes, we got rain, lightning, thunder, hail and very strong winds closer to the center of low pressure. that low is moving out. so the weather is calming down now. tomorrow morning we'll see an increase in sunshine throughout
6:49 pm
the day. tomorrow evening we'll keep things partly sunny or mostly clear, but look what happens start morning, clouds and a few light to moderate rain showers. that will move out quickly. by saturday afternoon we'll begin to see sunshine reemerging. scattered downpours, a couple more possible, but most of it's already gone, mainly dry weather friday, but we aren't done because rain moves in early in the day saturday. highs tomorrow a degree or 2 below average, seasonal, chilly if you're tsid mpbell rtly sunny, 59, ty 57, pacifica 56, dublin 57, pittsburg 59, drying out in berkeley, 58 degrees, petaluma 59, sonoma 59, chilly in lake county, lakeport 52 and clearlake 51 degrees. saturday morning more light to moderate rain showers, then dry for the weekend. tuesday and wednesday more light to moderate rain showers. now that we've caught up with what's normal for the water year, mother nature will do her best to keep us near normal

high school football gets down to the nitty-gritty this weekend when section championships are won and lost and if atherton sacred heart wants the title, they've got the perfect man for the mission. the gators won a combined five games in the last two seasons, but they've won 11 so far in 2018 and completely shattered the head coach mark grieb's
6:54 pm
goal. >> he said we want to have a winning season i think is what he said and he hasn't lived that down. >> what the coach is slowly living down is his former life as a football player. it's been over a decade since grieb was a legitimate star quarterback in the arena football league. the san jose native won three arena bowl titles with the sabercats back when his players were barely out of diapers. >> they came up with a nickname for me. they started calling me the goat. i'd walk places and they'd do little calls. not the goat that dropped the touchdown pass, greatest of all time. >> i remember when i was a freshman hearing the older guys like call him the goat and like the joe montana of arena football. i was like who is this guy? we have an arena football team? >> grieb had options when the arena leg folded eventually. he had a masters degree and decided his next calling was as a teacher both in the class rooming and on the field.
6:55 pm
>> the last two years -- room and on the field. >> the last two years i played i was calling the plays and coordinating the offense. in some ways the guys on the team treated me like a coach. >> hiss are play as a coach is far -- hiss are play as a coach is far from -- his resume as a coach is far less glamorous. he thinks what could have been if his football career went a different direction. >> worked out for the chiefs and at one point they asked if i wanted to sign with them. i was about four weeks from finishing my masters at stanford at that point. if they promised me i'd get in training camp, i said i'll come, but they couldn't. so i didn't go. >> a masters from stanford brought him to sacred heart where he's trying to add a little more decoration to the football field gate. the gators will play for the division 3 title this saturday against aptos. kurt warner was an arena league
6:56 pm
quarterback. >> that turned out well. >> and super bowl champion and jeff garcia, canadian football league, long time quarterback in the nfl, three time pro bowler with the 49ers. so i think mark grieb had that potential. he had the game and had the shot with kansas city and didn't work out. >> didn't happen, but teaching, coaching, admirable profession. >> masters at stanford not bad. palm, we are expecting more rain, right? >> saturday morning i want to tell people it's nothing like the rain we got today, the thunder and lightning and all that. we do have a couple showers over hayward and fremont. that's the last of the showers moving out. we dry out tonight, dry tomorrow, some showers or light rain returning saturday morning. the storm is gone, a lot of stormy weather. >> time to clean up. we always got you covered news and weather on >> join us for nightbeat at 10:00 and back here tonight at 11:00. good night.
