activities. yes it's going to be cooler. it's going to be breezy, and there is a chance of showers in the forecast for sunday. happy friday to all of you for today, tomorrow, little change in the forecast. here's a beautiful view over the bay area where our inland cities are enjoying some blue sky also have a picture behind me that the areas over san francisco into the west, mostly cloudy conditions and starting out with some drizzle this morning. some areas still experiencing a little bit of drizzle, although it's falling below the radar being so hard to tell exactly where it's at could have. some along the coastline could have some in the north bay because farther north we have a system that is moving through washington, oregon, northern california all the way down to about mendocino county, seeing some scatter shower activity so areas over the north bay reporting some early this morning as well as in our hills as well as along the coastline, not much in the way of accumulation. unfortunately the future cast here shows you that we will remain mostly cloudy along the coastline. for today. partly cloudy for the rest of
the bay area getting into tomorrow, starting out, with some fog starting out with some party cloudy conditions and then as we get into the afternoon will go mostly sunny with very seasonal attempts were now into sunday, also mother's day and if you are going to be celebrating, we will continue to watch this, but it looks like a wave moves through in the morning hours, and there could be scattered shower activity behind it. so we will again. watch that for you, but just be prepared for not only the possibility of some wet weather, but temperatures going to cool off quite a bit and it is going to be breezy will show you that in just a moment. tahoe is expected to get snow on sunday. blue canyon right now. 54 degrees south lake tahoe reporting 62. as we get into saturday below freezing to start the morning fifties in the afternoon, so temperatures do begin to cool on saturday, but saturday is going to be a dry day sunday temperatures only struggling at about 40 degrees in the afternoon, and those snow showers are expected to develop. could see 123 inches over areas of lake tahoe so something to
definitely consider if you are thinking about heading up to tahoe for the weekend temperatures in and around the bay area right now low sixties at the coast to low seventies in brentwood. we've got nice, mild weather out there very seasonal a little bit below average in some spots, but not by much. 64 in san francisco for the afternoon will go upper sixties for san rafael, low seventies for areas over fremont and 74 expected for concord today. if you're going out to see the giants play, bring along the extra layers or the jacket, maybe even the blanket. it's going to be cool. it's going to be breezy. mostly cloudy skies the west wind about 15 mph. 57 degrees when the game starts at 7 15. here's a look at your extended forecast notice. temperatures do come down tomorrow and then another notable drop on sunday. for all those outdoor festivities. it's going to be breezy. it's going to be cool. you may even need the umbrella and then scattered showers remaining in the forecast, with the cool conditions lasting monday into tuesday. back to you. all right, we'll be prepared. thanks rosemary. birthday wishes going

francisco and shows us how they're special connection brought them here to the bay area. dear san francisco is a love letter to the city. a show with breathtaking feats of skill and strength, but this show is about much more. they come prepared for acrobatics and to be wowed by the physical accomplishment, but they're not prepared for the story, and they're not prepared that that story moves them. moved by the stories within the story and when we talk about two performers in the show, song and pan, their story is without a doubt a love story. what do you feel when you watch her? beautiful. what a beautiful woman. it seems these two may have always been meant to be on stage and in life. their story starts in china. both were recruited by the same circus school. we have to live in the school. we don't live with our family. we eat at school. we
sleep with the like, you know, like a classmate. yeah, it's like army and you are how old she was 80 years old. i was 11 years they never met there but 10 years ago while they were both performing for different groups in canada, their paths crossed. it was during her rehearsal, my creation for different products. then we just met. we had a dinner with the two of other friends, then we just like to say that way. find love, and that's when they realized something needed to change. we realize we want to be together, so we have to learn something together. like the same act. that's why starting started learning chinese you you're from her. so that you could eventually be together. yeah, that was the idea. it's called the diablo traditionally only performed by women and so
pan needed to teach song recorded herself how to do it sent to me. i know where that ho my god. very serious help. i don't remember how many times i was like, okay. i want to give up. i can't. it's too hard. it's too hard. that's why juggling is easy. but when you want to be the level like high level is too hard. i want it. i don't know how many times like, probably like 100 times out like i don't want to do this anymore. but did you feel like if i can't get this? i can't be with her. that's why that's why i can't give up. otherwise it for sure i'll give up easily. it took three hours a day, he says. five days, sometimes seven days a week for five years until he says he was finally good enough to perform it on stage. but even then, they still have to figure out how to do it together like there's like specific trick. it's like a ping pong after through to her that she points to me. they just be like, oh, you didn't throw good enough.
she said. oh, no, you didn't cut. you didn't kind. good enough. no, it is. it's just like threat to hand. yeah it's crazy. but success on stage allowed them to be together. it meant getting married to play. let's do it and these two beautiful children. it is all part of what you see when you watch them perform on the stage of club fugazi to performers who separately perform amazing feats from the west, a neighborhood the worst in the neighborhood is the best juggling hats. balancing umbrellas. and diving through hoops. but when they share the stage together, face oy gave me a life of my own family products. to you. there
is just something more. i feel now life is complete with her on stage with me. love story forever entwined in this love letter to san francisco. dear sam francisco. nowhere was my home on t u i met you love this city and the city has loved them right back. in san francisco. claudine wong ktvu fox two news. hmm. we are following a developing saga involving the gilroy garlic festival, the official gilroy organizers this week said once again, they have canceled their popular event. no question about that a man behind the asparagus festival in stockton that has been lobbying to bring the event to the delta. tonino said. he says he'll set up his own garlic festival, august 13th and 14th at the san joaquin county fairgrounds and stockton's he does not have the gilroy garlic festival branding he is inviting vendors from that
