9:15 pm
for us. just some high clouds moving through. in fact, that low pressure center is going to actually head through a southern california. so if you're headed there tomorrow, likely to see some clouds, a chance they could pick up a couple of sprinkles, but not much. we're still looking at that offshore wind here as that low pressure continues to move the south. i think we're seeing those offshore winds again for us for tomorrow. so here we go. that low continues to make its way into southern california uc bringing us some clouds moves on by. but look at the track of the winds, yale, that offshore wind again is going to make for some nice weather is that are approaches the warms up and we're left with some very nice weather outside. the only downside, yes, been hazy, not much mixing in the atmosphere. nothing really weather wise. they get the pollutants out of our skies. so you can see some haze in the north bay, east bay and south bay still looking good up toward the coastline overnight. tonight you're seeing on the models here picking up that low. moving to the south. you see those clouds swing up across our skies. then as we get into sunday, that's all going to

>> and now kron 4 sports. >> the forty-niners are just one win away from playing in the super bowl. the only thing standing in their way now the la rams. we're less than 48 hours away from the nfc championship game at sofi stadium. and that's where we find kron. 4 sports reporter kate rooney. she joins us live now. kate, i love your backdrop, but we've got to
9:40 pm
talk about the forty-niners. how are they looking on the injury front ahead of this big game? >> it's a beautiful place for football, kyle and at least from the outside. and i got to say right now the forty-niners are looking pretty good as well. when you've got 4 road games in a row, this will be the 4th 1, 1, of the key components is try to make sure everyone stays healthy. and right now we've got a good report running back. elijah mitchell cornerback ambry thomas and quarterback jimmy garoppolo were all full participants in today's practice. that's really good news. the big question mark, though, is will left tackle trent williams play on sunday. now, this is a really huge question, mark, because trent williams is a key piece of this offense. he was dealing with an ankle sprain that he sustained in the green bay game. kyle shanahan declined to state whether it was a high ankle. sprain or low ankle sprain. but later in his media session, garoppolo seem to let it slip. that is a high ankle and that is the bad kind. there's no way you want protecting your blind side more than trent williams. not only is he widely considered
9:41 pm
the best at his position, but several of his teammates and coaches have called him the best player in the league at any position period. he ended up missing week 18 against the rams. and the niners, of course, managed to pull that one off. but they don't want to try without him again. here's what kyle shanahan said today about the likelihood of williams playing. >> it's going to be like it was 3 weeks ago. i feel the same way that beginning the he came out for a walk through the day and turns and that he's he was last time too can do everything you can to play. and so i'll be surprised if he doesn't. but i was surprised last time. so it's has also surprises able to finish the gamers green bay so hopefully his mindset will be how his body reacts on sunday and we know to help us a lot. but if not, we'll deal with it. >> so right now, william status is officially questionable. there is one other player on the forty-niners roster who is questionable as well. that's running back. jeff wilson
