6:16 pm
4:30 this afternoon but that starting to calm down. and upper level with cool air aloft and firing up the showers from here as the future-cast will show you, shower chances ending as we approach sunset and we should stay dry into tomorrow morning. other than a stray sprinkle or two here in the santa cruz mountains, the morning is chilly with partly cloudy skies and mid-40s from the north bay valley and tri-valley and santa clara valley. thicker coat weather for the morning but then dress in layers. afternoon not bad. but the winds pick up through the afternoon around san jose. 67 for a high. 72 in pleasant ton and walnut creek and upper 50s to low 60s around the peninsula and palo alto 65 degrees, upper 50s closer to san francisco and a combination of 60s to low 70s into the north bay. so monday increasing clouds late. and then tuesday a chance of seeing a few scattered showers. that is the second in last chance of showers we'll see this week. but notice the wind speeds. it will be a bit blustery for
6:17 pm
your tuesday. the wind off the ocean means tuesday's temperatures are going to be chilly. but this system looks like it will aim in more east of the sierra so we are not expecting a whole lot of showers out of the tuesday system and the second half of the weather story is high pressure building in leading to a big-time jump in temperatures for san francisco, meaning highs from the upper 50s to low 60s to possibly upper 70s by friday. perfect setup into next weekend. if you like summer-like temperatures and on tuesday could see a few low 90s possible by friday and saturday. so all seasons covered in the next seven days. >> sounds good. rob, thanks a lot. coming up, a special day at great america. how a group of courageous kids took over the park. ♪

6:22 pm
6:23 pm
going into the western conference finals, the question wasn't whether the warriors would win the series, but in how many games they would win it in. well it was evident in game oner the warriors were not about to roll over the dubs and we may be in for a long series. let's take you to oakland. now here is steve kerr walking into oracle with his son nick kerr. watching the game from the locker room. in the third they were up 21 and leonard who had suffered an ankle injury against the rockets in the previous series lands ouk wardly on pachulia and woe come out of the game and not return. and from there warriors would go on a huge run. and with under 2:00 to play, dubs down three and curry misses and gets his own rebound and finds durant and he misses but it is tip to curry and this time, let's see -- oh, yeah. he's money. dubs up two.
6:24 pm
then under 15 seconds to go and dubs up one, curry, the floater -- gets the shooters bounce, finishing with a game high of 40 points and he seven triples on the night and warriors win 113-111. >> they came out and challenged us heavy and put a nice little run together and took us a minute to figure it out to get up to this game speed, after this little break. and it was definitely a nice way to win game one and we have to capitalize off that and start game two a lot better. >> it is actually perfect game one. you get punched in the mouth, and yet you could still get the win. it is a lot tougher in game two when you win easily 20 or 30 points and then you have a let-down and now we could come out knowing how good this team. they just came off something
6:25 pm
real where they had to fight or take control of that series. ours way was a little lighter than that. so play a great team like that and get punched in the mouth and now have our guard up and start better, that is big for us. >> the leonard injury hampered the spurs. they went on a run but the curry sharp shooting in the third quarter brought the dubs back into the game. and we have more on the reigning mvp performance from oracle. >> steph happens, steph took control in the third quarter. it was not just the points, but the effort of changing the style of the play and the pace of the game. it was dictated by the spurs in that first half. they were playing inside, slowing the game down, warriors were turning it over, but steph in the second half, every time he got the ball, he pushed the ball up the court and zipped it up the court. even just to get to the
6:26 pm
three-point line it doesn't mean he was pushing it to go score in transition or get a layup or a three. he was just pushing it into the half court offense. beating the defense down the court. speeding the game up. and the warriors had to get back to their style of play. it started with stef. >> game two coverage starts on tuesday at 5:00 on nbc sports bay area. greg papa and gary st. jean and collena will get you seat up to tipoff which is at 6:00 p.m. no across the bays, giants beat the reds for the first win streak of the season. how about that. that is it for sports. more news after the break.
