weather today because things are changing. let's check in with jeff ranieri. >> we have some drastic changes coming our way this weekend and a lot of you probably also noticed that extreme weather shift from the morning hours right into the afternoon. we started with upper 40s and also low 50s down in the south bay and by the afternoon 90 in the valley, 98 in gilroy. for many of you down here in the santa clara valley, a 30 to 50 degree jump in those temperatures by the afternoon. you know, when we're in meteorology school, they tell you a good rule of thumb is 20 to 25 degrees is the most amount of heating you will see in a day, but the bay area, of course, defies that. not only hot air aloft, but the extra component to give us that boost in the weather and to amplify our numbers was that wind coming a little out of the north today right throughout san jose. that's a drying wind for us, and, again, that's what helped to catapult the temperatures and also give us some fog-free conditions. let's get you outside to the high definition sky camera network and also some live video shot here from our crews. you will be able to see not only enjoying san francisco like it's a hot beach day, but also doing
a little bit of sunbathing. that's somebody out there in their bathing suit today enjoying all of those rays of sunshine. hopefully that was you out there in san francisco getting in a little bit of sun because, again, we are going to undergo some drastic shifts. on friday numbers will mainly start to go down here. at the coastline only mid-60s. and for the interior valleys instead of 80s like today, we will stay with 70s and we'll also notice that cloud cover increasing as we get closer to the lunch hour. so when is that rain going to arrive? a storm system is still positioned well offshore, but as we head throughout the next 36 hours, it's going to get a little closer, and we think as we head throughout saturday at this point, that's in that best chance of showers going to be in the forecast. namely throughout the north bay, that's where you will likely see the best potential. temperatures going from the 90s today inland all the way down to the 70s. we're going to detail more on those rainfall amounts and who could see exactly what coming up a little bit later on, you guys.

targeting motorists during the evening commute. >> we were able to identify nine victims that had some sort of damage to their car, either their right window and/or paint chips to their$x right doors, , unfortunately, right now we have no leads. >> reporter: and there may have been other victims earlier in the week. an employee at spider auto glass told us a customer came in tuesday and said his window had been shattered by what appeared to be a bb while driving the same stretch of highway 101. amazingly, no one was hurt in last night's attacks. chp officers are out on the highways right now beefing up patrols to look for the shooter. they say so far they have no leads. so they're really hoping that the public can come forward and help them catch this shooter before someone gets hurt. reporting live in san jose, marianne favro, nbc bay area. >> thanks, marianne. now a follow-up. the city of san leandro is saying not so fast to a plan to

maybe they've had trouble with a credit history issue, and in their mind they're thinking, well, i can't buy a car now and i had trouble getting a credit card, i certainly couldn't get any realu/0 estate. >> reporter: for trulia, it's about getting personal with people looking for a place to live. and if you're out there hunting, you cans a s s access all the w on the trulia mobile app late they are fall. in san francisco, scott budman, nbc bay area news. >> fall is arriving. get your umbrellas out right on cue. >> right now it's so gorgeous. >> i can't believe the change is on the way, jeff. >> i know. i said rain in the newsroom earlier, we had a tour coming through, they put their hands up in the air and they were super excited. >> we haven't seen it in a long time. >> the focus group is about 10 to 13, but they want, it we're going to give it to them. we have adcz developing syste f offshore that will provide
drastic changes. i want to take you onto the northern branch of this storm system right now near canada, also washington. we're noticing a decent amount of uplift with the frontal system offshore, so to us that's a good indication that we will definitely get some sort of wet weather here as we head throughout saturday's forecast. we're going to have more on that coming up, but i also want to take you to the other thing we're all going impacted by, and that's the much cooler weathe[5á from livermore at 94 to 75 by saturday. san jose also from 88 to 73. and san francisco from sunny, beach weather today, fo75, to 6. tomorrow will be that transitional day. it's not going to be a totally horrible day. it will still be enjoyable. temperatures ranging in the 60s to mid and upper 70s by 11:00 a.m. the key thing you will notice here, cloud cover increasing just around the lunchtime hour, and we think by even tomorrow evening we'll start to see the clouds building up quite a bit at our immediate coastline. let's take you outside to the high definition sky camera
network. it is absolutely clear in san jose. great air quality with this. pollen in moderate levels. off to the north golden gate bridge, sunny. but by friday that foggy breeze returns. likely by this time tomorrow night, we will start to see the visibility beginning to deteriorate. overall temperatures going down tomorrow about 3 to 5 degrees in the south bay. 80 in san jose, 82 in morgan hill, 85 in gilroy. the east bay out of the 90s for places like pleasantopleasanton livermore. 84 in walnut creek. san francisco, sorry to crash the party here. instead of 70s like today, we're going to go to 68, 74 in richmo richmond, 75 in berkeley, and 79 in napa. the rain will be arriving by saturday. so friday night right now we look dry. maybe a spotty showers in the extreme north bay. then as we head throughout saturday morning, that's when we will start to see the system pushing to the south. a few stray showers early on at about 5:00 a.m., but the coverage looks to pick up with some uplift in the atmosphere.
by about 1:00 and 2:00 in the afternoon with areas of scattered rainfall from santa rosa to san jose. it looks like a lot, but right now the overall totals are not now the &háhp &hc&tals are not what you're going to be able to see on the next map is our computer estimates. up into the north bay, that's where we could see trace amounts to maybe 0.1 of an inch and really little to nothing there for the east or also the south bay. so, yes, a few rain drops on saturday, just not a large storm system. the temperature it's drop into the 70s for this upcoming weekend. next week or largest concern will be on wednesday. that's when winds look to pick up. even with 70s in the forecast, our fire danger will be increasing. starting to get busy in the weather scepter. >> thanks very much. a live look now at the o.co coliseum. if you are heading to the a's game you will have to pack a little patience. starting tonight fans will have their bag searched and pockets
emptied before walking through a metal detector. get there a little bit earlier than you normally would. let's get to sports. i want to know what's going to go off if he walks through that metal detector tonight. >> there would be a lot of bells and whistles going off. they would have to do a full body search. >> you have a lot of change, carrying a lot of change. >> i'd get in about the fourth or fifth inning by the time they were done with me. let's get it going in sports. it's only thursday but all 49ers fans have their eyes on sunday when the red and gold try to rebound from getting torched by seattle. the colts are running and with them trent richardson who they acquired in a trade with the browns yesterday. today the 49ers started preparing to face last year's third overall pick out of alabama. mindi bach now in santa clara with more on the match-up with
riardson. >> reporter: the defensive players spent thursday morning studying the running style of trent richardson. but the addition of the talented second-year back won't change much in the way of san francisco's preparation. >> richardson back there or bradshaw or brown, they're still going to have their offensive plays. >> they just may hand it off more than they been. they got a great running back to give it to, and he's strong, he's fast, but he also has got some shiftiness, too, where he can bounce it outside or inside. >> reporter: establishing a rhythm in their own running game will be tantamount for the 49ers. san francisco has seen defenses stacking the box and attacking their ground game differently than last season. still through two games, colts' running backs and quarterback andrew luck all have more rushing yards ban frathan frank. >> they may make us throw the ball, but we've had success before running with the loaded boxes, so, you know, that's not
an excuse. >> the production and execution thus far has not been where we want it to be. >> frank churning out those yards for us is very important to our success. >> reporter: frank gore has been open about his frustration regarding the 49ers' lack of production in the running game and it's understandable. gore's 60 total rushing yards on 30 carries through the first two games of this season is his worst start to a season since he became the starter in 2006. in santa clara, mindi bach, nbc bay area. the oakland a's on the cusp of their second straight a.l. title. they open a series against the minnesota twins. a's magic number to clinch is five. any combination is add up to the number five and the division is theirs. andrea did beat the security detail and she has more. >> reporter: the a's are coming off a tough loss after josh hamilton hit a two-run shot in
the ninth inning on wednesday. as this team tries to dwindle its magic number down to four. it has to put that loss in the rear-view mirror, something the a's have done well this season. >> we just take it a game at a time. like yesterday, whether we won the game previously or we lost, it doesn't really matter. because today is obviously a different game. >> we take every day as a new day. that's kind of been the mantra all year is play every game for that day and do your best that day and worry about what your position is at the end of the year. >> every day is a different day and whether we pull out a dramatic win or lose a tough one, doesn't matter, we have another game the next day. we go to the next day and it doesn't matter, win or liz, ose know we have a fresh start every day. >> i think the teams understand that there's nothing you can do about the day before. you just have to come back the next day with the same attitude to win. >> reporter: the a's had success against the twins last time around taking two of three at
target field. b -- in oakland, nbc bay area. >> thank you, andrea. the giants won today in new york against the mets. that's good. they open a weekend series against the yankees in new york on friday. that's good. this isn't good. finally, dodgers won today, 7-6 in arizona. they clinch the national league west title. last time the dodgers won the west was 2009. giants fans not too pleased about this season. but there's always next year, right, guys? >> there's always next year. >> there's even this sunday, and janelle was asking me what do you think about the 11 1/2 point spread the niners have? >> i didn't know that since i only watch the game nm/b entertainment purposes, terry. 11 1/2 is a pretty big spread. i think the niners are going to paste the colts. i go to janelle for all my

money. in recent years caltrain had to raise fares and freeze salaries. but insiders say the financial picture was not as bleak as we were told. >> they didn't want you to ask questions. they just want you to do what they said. >> reporter: so this series of mistakes that your agency initially denied then has now admitted to, is this just bad accounting or is it financial fraud? >> no. i think i'll try again. i've answered this question now three times. there were some mistakes in coding. >> reporter: and sam trans calls them honest mistake. hear more from our interview with the ceo. we investigate tonight at 11:00. >> looking forward to that report. thanks so much. >> thanks for watching nbc bay area news at 6:00. >> we'll see you back here at 11:00. good night, folks.
