increased moisture from the skies for maybe one 10th of an inch in some places which will help as we go down the road because on monday and tuesday we get a pressure switch which means the high builds back into that and the wind goes offshore. the temperatures are little warmer than last night. you see the system to the south and that is tomorrow. the system to the north is saturday. and it is hard to see on this image but you will see the jet stream arc up over. that is the high building in. so i was kind of hoping and i think we all were that the system on saturday would produce more and it still could but it does not look like a slamdunk for real rain like not a game changer for you fifth stuff you have to do on saturday. you will do it. there is a lot of fog and clouds the morning and tomorrow will be partly cloudy and sunny and yellows are 70s. that is it. 60s and 70s tomorrow. that is how it stays. the numbers will remain like this right through the weekend and it warms up on sunday
through tuesday. you know, you never know. i will be the first one to say that but hopefully things transpire a little more aggressively on saturday so we could get more than a few scattered light showers and there is a five day forecast and i will see you back here at 11:00. in san francisco a ferris wheel in golden gate park has finally be cleared to go and operation. it is a 150 foot high ferris wheel built for the parks 150th anniversary, but because of the pandemic, it stood idle for the past six months. the sky star wheel will finally welcome guests on october 21. this is the first ferris wheel in the city since the world's fair back in 1894. coming up after the break, it was another home run derby between the a's and astros as both teams combined for six homeruns and this is a do or die
even in normal times. our frontline health care workers. and when these heroes lack the resources they need, that risky job gets ten times harder. prop fifteen makes corporations pay their fair share. to invest in our communities, in our clinics, in the essential workers who treat everyone- rich, poor, and in-between. whether it's this pandemic or the next health crisis, vote yes on prop fifteen. for all of us.
how is it going, everybody. it is the end of the line for the oakland a's unfortunately and just and absurd abundance of homeruns in the series down at dodger stadium and they caught a perfect storm and jacked up baseball and no wind and hot weather and bob mehlman and 24 home runs and he was about ready to view and look at that signals the number 2 meaning breaking pitch and ramon said his thank you very much and quenches eighth 3 run homer in his first of the postseason and a's often i start 3-0 and it looks like they will add it to the 4th and
he is a deep right and a's fans how many times have you seen josh reddick do that in the old days for the oakland a's? and olson, and the dugout can't believe it and then it turned the tide right there and the bottom of the 4th the same score and mike bradley gets into it taking frankie deep to a two run homer and he would hit 2 and the astros still trailing 3-2 until later in the 4th with 2 on for carlos korea who is found his stroke and had a rough regular season and he knows it is gone and the astros are hot and they lead 5-3 and they were not about to let up. jose altuve a puts all of his 160 pounds into that one and eight two run homer off of jay and his second of the postseason and astros with some sad faces to the a's while dusty and company are moving on and they eliminate the a's advancing to the alcs for the 4th consecutive year. they may be the villains, but
they are rolling right now. >> we knew it would be tough and 60 games felt more like a regular season, but even playing field for everyone he. our goals were lofty and we fell short of them. >> we have another good one in the american league in the yankees and raise will go the distance and the new york cup 2- 1 in the pinstripes add to it. he had a crunch off of ryan yarborough and in the 4th deck of the western metal supply company and the yankees win 5-1 to tie the series 2-2 and they will settle it tomorrow. in the national league, look out for the dodgers and they have not won at all since 88 and they have not even lost a game yet in the postseason and they sweep to the padres and they get a historic game out of will smith and the youngest guy
ever to have 5 hits in the playoff game and the youngest but also the only dodger ever with 5 hits in a postseason game and one of his efforts was a 2 run double and the dodgers put to rest the padres a 12-3 and a clean sweep and la 5-0 so far in the postseason. they will take on not miami but the braves and 1-0 and travis hit it deep off the youngster and freddy freeman has himself a run and it is a double for him and it is an easy 7-0 win for them. all right. we have some football to talk about and look like a pretty good matchup with 23-1 teams going at it. but as it turns out it is the
upset here with nick foles in the second quarter and the bears down 6 any fines jimmy graham in the end zone and that is a beautiful one hand grab right there and it turned the tide 14-13 team and on to the fourth quarter and chicago leading 20 minutes 19 and brady with the come back like he has done some the times on 4th down and he is denied checkup brady and this is odd for a veteran quarterback right there is he thought it was only third down on the incomplete and he didn't know how many downs there were and that is somebody's fault and he is frustrated. the buccaneers fall 1 shy in the bears are four minus one for the first time since 2012 and disturbing news tonight regarding a former 49er. the great fred dean a pass rusher supreme in his career who helped lead the 49ers to their first super bowl and 81 and 82 reportedly hospitalized tonight and on a ventilator after being infected with covid-
19. fred of course could use all of your well wishes and prayers and he is 68 years old and we certainly wish him all the best. we have a little extra time so why not check this out. this is some cute stuff to finish us out. some cute kids and it never fails with that. first four years old and already skilled. and check this out. twin sisters, 15 years old from france and they do some nice trick shots together. and that is a lot harder than it looks. >> heck yes it is. >> and it never touches the ground. watch and see how they did that and i wonder how long they worked on it. that is the sporty my for this hour. back in the studio and it feels pretty good and 11:00. time for that. >> yes. i miss you guys.
all right. i hope so soon. thank you. coming up next at 11:00. is kind of like we can breathe for the moment but it feels like there is something just around the corner and that is very unsettling and very unsettling to feel like this is our new normal that nobody wants to have. >> fire survivors relive the frightening moments three years ago when they had to evacuate their homes and flee from the tubbs fire that burned through coffee park in santa rosa like a blowtorch. the 11:00 news on ktvu fox 2 starts now. it was three years ago today that the deadly tubbs fire broke out and tour through neighborhoods and destroyed thousands of homes. hello again. i am frank somerville. >> many survivors it feels like the tubbs fire just happened especially as so many now find th
