the windsor backup quickly and then we get a little, while not a little, but another wind event tomorrow night at about the exact same time, but with much less potential for big wind. there is the winds above us right now. you see them turn the direction, northeast. and then you also see the 70 in concord, 70 in walnut creek. those are current temperatures running about what they would last night at this time. and in the forecast i. tomorrow will be a warm day. advisories throughout the bay area, places near san francisco. so the five day forecast, the plan here is to just really geb 6:00 in the morning. we can breathe a little easier because this is the main event. right now it looks like it'll verify, but it is not doing well with this. >> sorry, we are just getting breaking news regarding former
niners player fred daily. if you remember him, he was part of the championship teams of the san francisco 49ers going into the super bowl. he had coronavirus and was in the hospital. some very sad news about fred dean, we will have that in a moment. also, their backs are against the wall. the night the doctors showed why there is still some dangerous coming up in sports. how they did something in a postseason that has never been done before. i didn't choose this job because it was easy.
but i can't say i expected this. to fight these fires, we need funding - plain and simple. for this crisis, and for the next one. prop 15 closes tax loopholes so rich corporations pay their fair share of taxes. so firefighters like me, have what we need to do the job, and to do it right. the big corporations want to keep their tax loopholes. it's what they do. well, i do what i do. if you'ld like to help, join me and vote yes on prop 15.

been diagnosed with covid-19 and was put on a respirator. things did not go well as far as recovery and they just announced a few moments ago, your member fred dean as an absolute force on the 49ers defensive lineup, a ferocious pass rusher that definitely helped the 49ers to their first super bowl back in 1981, 82 season. if you just don't believe what this disease can do, fred dean was just 68 years old and an absolute specimen of a human being. fred dean tonight died at the age of 68. the los angeles dodgers that a little something nobody else has done. just a ridiculous display of power in the top of the first inning today. today in their mls cls game against atlanta most of it happened with two outs. carl great was the victim, jack peterson took him deep with a
three-run homer and it just got worse. the dodgers actually continue to play on it and load the bases. max muncy, a former a, hits the shot deep with loaded bases. that's a grand slam 11-0. no team is ever done that in the postseason, score 11 runs in the first inning. the doctors trail the series after winning this one 15-3. but they have the momentum. two games to one, the braves on top of the series. let's go to the american league. a week ago dusty baker and company were polishing off the a's, the great leader that he has encouraging joscout to video has had some problems. home run to the first with a 2- tame given tampa. it is 4-2, astros lead. now here is the key sequence and a nod to old school baseball that is a great idea, that
cranky with mike russo to end the threat as tampa had the bases loaded in the square hole.4-2. and the series is still 3-1. but the astros managed this game to the tune of 4-3. san jose quakes, remember how miserably they start the season? they turned things around and they look off a playoff team right now in the mls down in los angeles, dealing with the galaxy. and we had a scoreless much and the 44th minute. andres rios with a nice set for nick lima. he is from castro valley and scored two goals tonight. with five matches left the lakes are looking pretty good as they take this much 4-0 over the galaxy.
and that is the sporting life. frank you are around when the niners won that super bowl. >> just a great guy. the coronavirus doesn't care at all. maybe they're not mine! i've always been faithful to you! (groaning) push, damn it! i'm not losing another baby today. -(flatline) -(groaning) cardiac arrest. crash cart! the shock could kill the baby! (paddles whine) that's something i'll just have to live with. maybe we could turn off the tv? -clear! -(tv shuts off) well, folks, i'm afraid i have some bad news. oh, my god. no. n-no, not that bad. i'm sorry. i did not think that through. no, you're not giving birth today. you've had false contractions, known as braxton hicks. it's very common. uh, so what does that mean timing-wise? it's no indication. it could be five weeks from now, could be five hours from now. i suggest you and your husband go home, get some sleep while you still can. oh, we're not married. we're just lovers. ugh! yuck. she hates that word. grosses me out, too, and i spend a lot of my time covered in afterbirth.
