erica says she could not get out of bed. >> thank you all so much for having me. i'm really excited to be here today. >> reporter: so how did she climb out of that hole? how is she now giving talks on the subject of resilience? >> it's just about getting back up. >> reporter: well, erica says, she ultimately realized she once had an amazing teacher. >> jen showed up on the scene for a reason. and jen was teaching me something really powerful at the time that i didn't know. so the third thing that jen taught me about -- >> reporter: the lessons jen in her dying days taught erica are the cornerstones of the talk she now gives. >> about perseverance and about connecting and letting people in, and about dreaming, visualizing the future. that's brighter than the one that you have currently in the present moment. >> reporter: when she thinks back on that magical day, erica knows there are some who focus on the price tag of that
wedding, that gift to jen. of course, only now does she truly understand that what she got in return was priceless. >> it's only been five years for her to endure so much. it's wonderful she is speaking out. and if anyone knows anything about resiliency, it's her. how is she doing now? >> she is doing much better. during this very dark time for her, as she said, she kind of reached back and thought about jen and how jen modelled her life in her last few months and realized that woman, who really was a beacon for how to handle this. and so she kind of drew from that experience. and then put that into action in her life and was able to overcome all that heartache. >> she is certainly an inspiration. thank you. and congratulations on 500 stories that is remarkable. we turn now to some new video tonight of an incredible natural phenomenon. this waterspout popped up off
the chesapeake bay in virginia earlier today. a woman at the beach caught this all on camera and posted the video online. it's amazing. waterspouts are columns of water and spray that form when the wind whips over a body of water. rob mayeda knows all about this and every other weather phenomena. his weather is like lessons for us. >> i had one over lake tahoe once, but not in person. >> so they can happen anywhere? >> over a body of water. if they transition over land technically that makes them into a tornado. again, they would want storm ranger for something like that. if you had something like that coming your way. but here a much calmer view. we had a hot finish to the week. big changes coming our way. for the middle part of the week, cooler, breezy. and maybe just a chance of some sprinkles off towards the north bay by wednesday. let's show you san francisco right now. you can see it from sutro tower which isn't always the case.
usually the is fog or clouds, potentially this view. we have clear skies right now. and the view across the bay, it will be monday night football tomorrow with raider nation hosting those l.a. rams. temperatures right now in the upper 50s. game time kickoff temperatures tomorrow just after 7:00 in the mid-60s. we had highs in low 90s. that's going to be going away, especially by wednesday and thursday. in san jose right now, 62 degrees. the thing we'll be watching closely to start the week is smoke pollution. still a smoke advisory around the bay area where actually the smoke may be a little more widespread on tuesday. that coming away from the snell fire in the northern part of napa county. again, the winds aloft, pushing some smoke from north to south. i think it's really going to be the north bay. northern napa county where you briefly could see some unhealthy air quality levels. as the forecast shows. by noon northwest winds aloft. and the sea breeze picks up. we should see more of the smoke
heading off to the east of the bay area towards the evening. morning temperatures in the mid- to upper 50-vkhs. highs tomorrow still warm inland. we're still close to 90 degrees around antioch and upper 80s towards livermore. 80s, san jose. upper 60s, san francisco. and another day of 70s in oakland. as you see here, mostly clear skies. northwest winds down the coast, keeping those low clouds away. but wednesday is going to be a different story. this weather system looking like more to mid- to late october. and a lot of clouds. breezy and much cooler conditions around the bay area for the middle part of the week. quite a bit of rain for the pacific northwest as we finish off the week. and maybe some showers into parts of northern california there on wednesday. probably not for the north bay, but other locations around mendocino county could see a few showers. and notice the temperatures dropping. into the 70s inland in a few areas. we'll show you a few extra seven-day forecast. palo alto, upper 60s. middle part of the week.
and here is another stop. livermore, showing you temperatures in the the low 70s that is 20-degree drop from the high temperatures we saw today. taste of fall. >> a little roller coaster there. all right, rob, thank you. >> thank you very much. turning over to sports now, dave feldman joins us after the break. the fight by some resideno keep the chainsaws away! plus- what wildfire victims can do to make their voices heard and possibly lead to better laws statewide. monday morning- from 4:30 to 7.
