>> i tore apart cars in my driveway. i rebuilt stuff at my house. i tore a whole bunch more stuff apart than i actually ended up rebuilding. >> reporter: but a few years ago, jordan was taken by the idea of rebuilding lives through rebuilding cars. >> i wanted to do something that actually mattered. >> there is a crank. >> reporter: at project reckless, troubled youth work with jordan and a team of mentors to restore vintage automobiles. >> this is an old mobile 330. >> reporter: and not just the mechanic, but budget and marketing and management. >> trying to motive someone else to do something positive. >> reporter: all mixed in with a steady stream of guidance and support for life outside the garage. >> i had this overwhelming feeling that i wanted to do something good. i wanted to do something that would give back, that would truly have more of a meaning. >> reporter: it is working for christian ordonez. >> it's just about cars. we have a good little family around here.
11:46 pm
i put all my trust in everybody here. i feel like i can tell anybody anything here. >> reporter: at project reckless, they have already restored a handful of cars and are preparing to start in on their next one, ready to put more old cars back on the road and more young lives back on track. >> all right, garvin. the new video tonight of this year's obon festival in mountain view. it's a japanese buddhist celebration in honor of the celebration of ancestors. they hold the event every year. this year nbc bay area's mike inouye was the emcee. and one of the traditional dancers tied in nbc and 2020 olympics in tokyo. did you notice the fans? there you go. look that. >> there they are. >> in the back of the dancers' costumes, you'll see fans. the tokyo olympics start on july 24th of next year.
11:47 pm
tuesday marks exactly one year until the games begin. and here at nbc bay area, we are more than ready to remind anyone who wants to know. >> marketing is ready. >> these will come in handy. >> appropriate for the forecast. >> actually for the 24th through the 9th. >> look at that. >> i'm a fan of yours, terry. you're going to need this. you brought up good point. the valleys. you're going want to check these out. if you happen to find them. >> on the coast you blow away the fog wit. >> san francisco, speaking of the low clouds, patches of the low clouds. what neat view we've got. we've got salesforce tower on the. to the bay bridge, both the new portion of the eastern span and the rest of the bay bridge lit up with temperatures in the 50s and 60s closer to san francisco. we're talking about this big warm-up. not so much san francisco. we'll still see highs close to 70. but san jose right now in the 60s. we had highs today in the low
11:48 pm
80s. and we'll see temperatures trending warmer. certainly for the santa clara valley, tri-valley, and into those north bay valleys. even though the winds are onshore, that will bring in low clouds around the inner bay for the morning with misty skies along the coast. look at the temperatures now for the mid afternoon. mid-80s around downtown san jose and starting to see more 90s popping up. and more of that as we head towards another part of the week. what's not going to be so comfortable will be increasing moisture. you see the green here on the map that is moisture for now that has been kind of bottled up in the desert southwest monsoon moisture. got a little taste with the high clouds that came in around sunset tonight. and we will see more coming into the sierra and southern california as we deal with the fog here on the coast, that you see right there. but these are the interesting clouds we're watching. notice what happens here. through southern california, up to areas basically south of highway 50, we'll be tracking a chance of seeing some showers, and actually, measurable
11:49 pm
rainfall. well hope that is the case because these will be bringing some lightning strikes which can this time of year start some fires. so we'll want to see measurable rainfall to put out any of that activity as that sets up across the high country, and might see a little getting up to the coastal range in lake county later in the week. something to watch as the humidity goes up. san francisco, not much change. numbers closer to mid 70 by week, but the valleys starting to climb into the 90s, mid-90s, in fact, in many spots for wednesday and thursday. so you'll want maybe an nbc fan or a power fan to be work, just like terry is doing there. >> we've got the fans right here for you. >> we sure do. >> cool air wherever you are. >> and they work very well. >> they are. we're going to turn it over to sports now. after the break. show me the crown.
