news. look at the weather now, it is looking awfully gray. i was looking over your shoulder and there's a lot of clouds out there. >> the whole week plan like that. i wouldn't say it's gloomy, but on the avenues of san francisco it's been gloomy and cool. i lived out on the avenues when i was younger and my family is from that area and i kind of liked it. i liked it foggy especially when you're waiting for the fall because fall time out of west and the sunset directly is beautiful as you know in the richmond district. 88 in antioch today the high, 83 in livermore, not bad inland. i wouldn't call that hot. i would call it above mild to warm those areas this time of year. there's all that fog. it's a lot of it deep and everywhere. tomorrow morning we'll have it
6:48 pm
in all nine bay area counties. you end the day mostly sunny and kind of mild, much like today. the big change comes in the form of perhaps some smoke coming up from the soberanes fire especially in the east bay and south bay valleys. look at all the clouds cooking over the oakland hills. see the west wing here on the trib building. sacramento will be in the 80s tomorrow, too for the most part. the fog forecast for the morning hours and the model tries to paint fog up into sacramento. you won't see fog like that, but the model is set up so it's like yeah, it's going to be cool enough you could support some fog in there. that won't be the case. it's drier air, but it's a big push. forecast highs tomorrow pretty mild, forecast highs sunday warmer. this is the football game going on friday tomorrow night 7:00
6:49 pm
levi stadium 67 degrees. even in that stadium which it runs pretty hot, 67 degrees will be almost perfect. brentwood is the hotspot. they're in the mid-80s. here's the five-day forecast. saturday about the same, sunday a little warmer, but we're really splitting hairs. we started on monday with this pattern and it's the same right through the week, but have you noticed, no fire stories, no spare the air stories and that smoke coming in from the south, but this is a good pattern. that's the five-day you want to see. >> this is where the tourists come out and say what, this is the middle of august? >> wearing the tank tops and flip-flops and they're cold. as we mentioned earlier, the warriors completed a huge deal today. they're leaving radio station knbr, why they're changing

6:53 pm
mark is here with sports. how bizarre the warriors won't be on knbr anymore. >> 32 years, long term relationship. it's kind of rocked the sports world. there are reasons that nonsports fans might be interested, but i tell you what. when you're the golden state warriors, you don't have to play second fiddle to anyone and they will not. from here on out the giants ruled knbr, but the warriors say it's all about us and who can blame them? they are now moving over to 95.7 the game on fm leaving that long term relationship with the golden state warriors and as far as the warriors are concerned, they just didn't like being overlapped by the giants. for instance, one of the giants exhibition games was broadcast on am radio and the warrior game when they were trying to set the all time record for 73 wins kind of overlapped them. so they said you know what? we don't want our fans searching around the radio dial any longer and it seems to be a
6:54 pm
move headed toward fm sports broadcasts anyway. rick welch says this all boils down to good news for warriors fans. >> we're very expanded programming, pregame, postgame, other programming during the year. if you're a warriors fan, you'll get a lot more content at our new home. the media business is very much about relationships and these are very, very longstanding relationships. we love the people at knbr. they've done an amazing job with the warriors for the time they've had them. now we're looking toward the future. >> there you go and business is sports and sports is business in this day in age. the raiders ready to get down to business play saturday against the tennessee titans and as we know, the third game of the preseason is always when you kind of show your cards a little bit, play more starters on both offense and defense, maybe run some plames that you
6:55 pm
are planning to go about during the regular season. the deal is the raider actually play the tennessee titans in game three of the regular season which puts them in kind of an unusual situation. they don't want to show too much because they'll be playing them in the near future. that's something coach jack del rio is dealing with now. >> a little unorthodox or unusual that you have a team you're playing in the third preseason game and turn around and play them early in the season, but we both understand what it is. we'll go in. we'll play our guys. we need to work, but obviously i'm sure both sides will hold a few things back. you won't show everything you have for regular season in the preseason game. we've been talking about the cal bears this week in australia. tomorrow night they open the college football season against hawaii down under, but one of their great alum, one of the best football players ever to come from the cal program, is down in australia and par

[ applause ] >> oh, yeah, marshawn, loving to lower that shoulder and kaboom, even down in australia as you see him kind of checking out the sport down there, marshawn lynch, of course, retired, leaving the seahawks for good. he made the venture down under. he talked about rugby and how it kind of reminded him in a way of a childhood sport he once played. >> i like it a lot. it reminds me of a childhood game we used to play throw-up tackle. we'd throw the ball up and whoever got it everybody pretty much went to go hit him. >> that wouldn't be all that cool to be playing even as a kid with marshawn lynch.
6:57 pm
>> i'm assuming he was pretty good at that. >> i can't believe that he stayed retired. i feel he has so much left in the tank, but he's for real on that. >> i know. i keep thinking we might see him come back, but you don't think. >> no. it's nice to see him talking. he doesn't talk to the media that often. >> he's been in a good understood since he retired. >> he is supportive, though. >> he's got a great charity, helps a lot of kids. >> and his mom watches channel 2, there you go. >> thanks, mark. our coverage continues right now at ktvu plus with ken and roth. hi, guys. >> at 7:00 a cab driver attacked in san francisco, his dashcam was rolling. someone reached into his car and hit him with a taser. what happened next? you'll see in a few minutes on 7. >> those stories and ail lot more on the 7 on ktvu plus.
