pretty good news eventually. it was good news yesterday. >> yeah. >> yeah. >> still good news. >> oh good. >> there's rain in the forecast coming on thursday. that's going to be the headline in the forecast but first we need to talk about the big swing in temperatures we're about to do. 70 degrees today. in san jose. and the camera by the way that we're using sits in downtown san jose. not far from city hall. looking out in the distance, mineta airport about two miles from the camera. the stadium is about six miles from the distance. the perspective is greatment if you want to go 60 miles away there's mount tam. great point from this camera. 70 degrees was the warmest number around the bay. in san jose that was for you. everyone is going to be about ten degrees cooler starting tomorrow. this morning lows tomorrow are going to be fine. by tuesday and wednesday morning, it's going to be really cold. compared to where we've been. here's monday morning. upper 30s in the north bay valleys and low to mid-40s for just about everybody else. you don't notice the change there but daytime highs
tomorrow you will. it was 70 in san jose today and you only do 61 tomorrow. that's a noticeable drop. but we're going to do that everywhere. tomorrow you are barely 60 and you are going to be breezy and that will make it feel cooler and you can see why this is going to happen. there's the first weak little cold front of the week. it falls apart in terms of rain. but look at all the air that's flowing down our way from the northwest. if we look at it a different way, just go up about 4,000 feet in the atmosphere, you can really visualize how the colder air is getting transported. the deeper the shade of blue, the colder to temperatures. that's why the numbers are going down about ten degrees from where they were. the fact it's going to get windy right there, tomorrow afternoon, north winds gusting to perhaps as much as 30 miles an hour for the north bay and 25 everywhere else. tomorrow, feels different. there's a little bit of a windchill. and we're already ten degrees cooler anyway. and that's the theme for the rest of the week. it's going to be noticeably cooler. we get a little bit of snow late tomorrow from this
system. so by tuesday morning, maybe there's a half an inch at the passes, it's enough to mess with the drive. now rain here, not yet. and going through wednesday, no rain. but definitely colder. those are the morning lows in the north bay valleys. 28 on wednesday in the north bay valleys and if we do the comparison, let's say that's santa rosa's number on wednesday. always going to be the coldest spot. let's put up some comparisons for other spots. everybody will be cold on wednesday morning. you may not be in the upper 20s cold. like the north bay valleys. but we're all pretty much going to be mid- to upper 30s on wednesday. you are going to feel that. and then on thursday, that's when the rain gets here. that's our system. so now we're looking at day four. still looks pretty good. in the long-range model. so we're going to keep a close eye on that one. and even the one behind it. that's the one that comes in perhaps on saturday. so -- much more in the way of details in terms of how much to expect from this from rainfall totals. let's give this about another 24 hours. so we'll get much more specificover the next
two days. stay on top of the first alert forecast with us. jessica will be in tomorrow morning and paul will be in in the evenings tracking this closely and there will be much to discuss if the forecast remains the same because we could get a good end of the week. but regardless of the rain, whether we get it or not, probably going to get something. it's going to get cold. all right. vern, over to you. all right, straight ahead in sports, warriors struck again. 49ers? are streaking. little home cooking today. will the nfc west coleaders before the game?
nfl up top and the 49ers, well, it happened again and not just a fourth straight second half shut-out this time. saints came away with nothing. on a day jimmy garoppolo and the offense looked flat and punchless in the opening quarter. short week. okayment all right. second quarter. niners looking to score a touchdown. fourth and goal. no. niners turn it over on downs at the saints' 1. whoa. but the 49ers, got another chance before the half. inside of a minute left. elijah mitchell got loose and took it to the house but there was a flag on the play. late hold on george kittle. no touchdown. they got first and goal and watch this catch from garoppolo. jawan
jennings stayed with it. tipped the ball and hauled it in. here it is again. whoa. 49ers led 10-0 at the half. fourth quarter. saints, on second and goal from the 6. kamara had fumbled once and boom. ball popped free and who did it? who did it? noah funga. 49ers' football. that's a tough stingy defense where they needed to stiffen upmost. the saints marched back on fourth and goal again. nick bole is a jumped the count and took down andy dalton in the back field. 11.5 sacks on the season for the bosa and the 49ers' defense shut out the saints. they're now 7-4. miami comes to town next sunday. >> it feels great you know. that's our goal every week is to shut them out. right? it's easier said than done. this one was -- was really special. because the way we had to get it though. time kind of slows
down in those moments where you are looking your teammates in the eyes and saying we have to full this off, you know. and you know, these are the ones you remember forever. josh mcdaniels and the raiders in seattle. big assist the 49ers. if they won. pick it up fourth quarter. tied at 27. the seahawks smith to travis homer. homer, 18-yard touchdown. seattle led 34-27. next drive, derek carr's turn. watch the catch from adams. one-handed catch with the defender all over him. 28-yard gain into sea hawk territory. two minutes to go on third and goal for vegas, carr, in the back of the end zone. the game is tied at 34 and for the second straight week the raiders went to overtime. second possession of overtime for vegas. in the a walkoff. it's a runoff. josh jacobs, up
the middle. past the seattle defenders and he gone. 86-yard touchdown. jacobs ran for a career-high 229 yards and two touchdowns and the raiders won it, 40-34. and improve to 4-7. so was seattle's loss the 49ers' take over sole possession of first in the nfc west. segue to the nba and the warriors. in the land of 10,000 lakes, i'm talking steve kerr in minneapolis. let the dubs run the floor at the timberwolves. first quarter. steph curry. oh, that's his range. part of a 28-4 run. warriors shot 76% in the first. led 47-27. midway in the second, jonathan coo min ganos how to drive it in. a two-handed slam. golden state led by as many as 28. jump to the fourth. after the timberwolves cult it to ten, there was curry to dash away
any hope. curry scored 25. and under four minutes left, rudy gobert, turnover. and klay thompson made them pay. dagger. we're done here. that made it a 19 point game. thompson scored 21 and the warriors won it 137-114. the warriors' record is now 11-10. stunner, in stanford. last night. head coach david shaw stepped down after their loss to byu. he led the cardinal to threepac-12 titles. but program has struggled recently with back-to-back three win seasons. >> other the last few days, for us, it was time. it was time for me to step aside. time for the next group to come in. and hopefully, you know, whoever they hire next, wins more games than i do. that would be awesome. i would love that. >> whoever steps in. i'll say
