just a few low clouds as we look at the big picture. two low pressure systems that are lined up and ready to bring some rain in, and that's just the beginning of the parade of storms that are in the pacific as the storm door is wide open, and we're going to see kind of a pattern that continues over the next week or so. this ridge has built up and predicted us and given us the sunshine today, but i don't think it will be very successful tonight. just a few clouds out. there mild, 52 degrees presently in san francisco. 50 at berkeley. 46 in mountain view. there are some 40s on the map there, and we'll certainly be chilly again tonight as you see temperatures drop down to even potentially the upper 40s in some of our areas. santa rosa, i'm talking to you. 36 in san jose. so similar to last night. it's going to be a little chilly out there. futurecast, we go through into
6:49 pm
tomorrow. the clouds patrol the. there's your wednesday at 9:00 a.m., and then we get into the afternoon and evening, and see showers roll in from the north bay to the south and when clear out again of thursday. that is the last day of the year there on thursday. should be a nice day, sunny skies. notice as we get into friday afternoon, you see another system approaching us from the northwest. so that's kind of that parade of systems. we're in this on again off again pattern, where we go from being sunny like today to tomorrow being cloudy with some of those evening showers. notice temperatures will be a little cooler tomorrow. upper 50s instead of seeing some of those 60s, 64-degree temperatures like we did today. so new year's eve will be a slight touch warmer, right? so a little warmer than we are tonight. but it will be clear. one of the days where we don't have rain. so it should be a dry new year's eve, and as we head across to the new year, we have symptoms developing as we get into the weekend, and looks like saturday night into sunday, a more significant
6:50 pm
system could deliver some beneficial rain us to. it's so just going to a little bit of rain tomorrow on wednesday. nice on thursday, maybe a couple of showers, sprinkles, i think, even, on friday night, and then saturday night into sunday daytime where i think we see a more significant move towards some more rain that will be measurable and will probably put a little bit of positive on the board for us, as we head into the new year. andre, back to you. former warriors guard baron davis is in talks to buy a major shoe brand. he is in negotiations to buy reebok. adidas is the parent company. the talks are to buy the company for $2.4 billion. still ahead, the warriors end their road trip detroit. all of the highlights coming up next in sports. >> and here is a look at
