through hiking trails. we're moving those impacts away from it and we're siting them here with the younger terrain. >> the old park was lovely, i have a lot of reverence forts old world charm. but the truth is it was extremely outdated and the world has changed dramatically since then. and so this is an opportunity to really redo the park in a way that meets today's needs and today's understanding of what the forests need. >> reporter: in the santa cruz mountains, kit do, kpix 5. memorial day will be the best part of the three-day weekend. today was pretty good but today's got some issues, a little light rain trying to come in. sound crazy but it's true. memorial day will be the best day for two reasons. one, barely a cloud in the sky. two, the wind will have
6:50 pm
lightened. tomorrow's going to be a bit breezy. but by the time we get to monday it will be sunny and calm and about ten degrees above where we were today for inland locations. we were like low 70s at best for most inland spots today. by monday, you're 81. in the bay, we're like mid-60s today. you'll go to 72, it will even be a decent day at the beach on monday, just plan on you're not going to get out of the 50s. live view right now from the top of the hotel. there's a little bit of misting light rain showing up here just off towards that west side towards the golden gate. if we go to first alert doppler, you'll see how that's coming toyota. we've got to come in real close. watch that line right there. if we zoom in, some of that's trying to hold together here. if you've got good eyesight there is a little green blip over there by the golden gate. the kind of stuff that's not even enough to measure. technically you do get a drop or two out of it. the futurecast picks up on those light showers and wants to hold
6:51 pm
them together for about the next two hours, maybe. maybe santa cruz, maybe big basin gets a drop of rain out of this, it's heading that way, from the story we just watched, there won't be a lot to it. here is a classic example, also a live picture, another one of our views looking over the tri valley. you're not going to get any rain out of this. we'll all look like that by the second half of tomorrow. tomorrow starts out gray but much sunnier for the second half of sunday and monday it stays that way. carnaval looks great. it's going to do what you expect the mission to do. it's going to be sunny, that's the reputation of the mission, one of the sunnier spots in the city. it's also going to be breezy tomorrow. if you read the fine print, by 2:00 in the afternoon it will feel kind of cool because of a 20-mile-per-hour breeze, stronger than what we had today. i pulled out the mission here
6:52 pm
just to kind of get detailed on that microclimate. sunny, yes, but also right kind of in the brunt of that strong onshore wind tomorrow. so a 23-mile-per-hour wind for the mission. we've got a 33-mile-per-hour wind, that's your strong onshore wind. we'll do it tomorrow and again on monday but monday won't be as strong. it will still be breezy there on monday. but it won't be as strong as tomorrow. by the way, that was tomorrow and all the clouds disappear by like noon. that's different than the last two days, it will be kind of nice tomorrow to get a lot more sunshine, and monday. morning lows start in the low 50s tomorrow. daytime highs tomorrow already start the warm-up. remember, monday's about ten degrees warmer than today was. tomorrow's about three or four degrees warmer. so we kind of start the trend. the warming trend keeps going after monday. look at wednesday, san jose specifically, 87. if we switch this up and look at the microclimates which always show us the warm-up in a more dramatic way, the top two lines
6:53 pm
in particular, inland, east bay valleys, 90s by wednesday. coming up, one of the biggest parts of carnaval will come from one of its smallest participants. we'll introduce you to the 8-year-old grandmarshal with a

fanduel and draftkings, two out of state corporations making big promises to californians. what's the real math behind their ballot measure for online sports betting? 90% of profits go to the out of state corporations permanently. only eight and a half cents is left for the homeless. and in virginia, arizona, and other states, fanduel and draftkings use loopholes to pay far less than was promised. sound familiar? it should. it's another bad scheme for california.
