6:47 pm
shipping center in san francisco. amazon paid $200 million to buy a six acre site on seventh street from the recycling company rick ology, which has owned the property since 1970. amazon plans use the facility to receive packages from its warehousing tracy in an effort to speed up deliveries across the bay area, a new study indicates it may be a good time to adjust your bedtime to keep your heart healthy. researchers found going to sleep between 10 and 11. p.m. is linked to a lower risk of developing heart disease, the study suggests earlier or later, bedtimes may be more likely to disrupt the body clock. which helps regulate physical and mental functioning. the study was conducted between 2000 and six and 2010 and included more than 88,000 participants in the uk. the study is published in the european heart journal digital health. alright this recent storm that blew through the bay area brought some snow to the sierra. the majority of it was coming down in those higher elevations and just a short time ago, heavenly and northstar announced plans to open up on november, 19th. i'm
6:48 pm
still working on that sleep study. julie i think any time you can sleep is good. right? well i did, too. but the 10 11 thing we're done that's not going to happen. well we're not getting that it's not happening for us. okay so you go outside. we've got mostly partly cloudy skies right now and then it's going to clear out more tomorrow. temperatures are warm. tomorrow we're back into the sixties and low seventies, the plan for the next couple of days dry after a really significant rain event, and it's in the north bay. you know, again over 3.5 inches in places more than that up on mount tam. and the rest of us anywhere from a half inch to an inch to a quarter of an inch to like san jose, just under 1/10 of an inch. there is that big, high pressure ridge dry pattern for the rest of the week, which is fine. that's fine. you know, we could use more rain. but if you've got a nice weekend in store and with temperatures going back this weekend into the upper sixties low seventies, i think you're going to be smiling. so maybe just enjoy this back to the. um kind of spring pattern weekend and
6:49 pm
we'll get some rain coming in here after that, hopefully so the jet stream is going to the north and the thing to notice tonight will be less wind less clouds. cold night valley fog. so we're back in that cycle. whenever you hear me, say, valley fog or even coastal fog, for that matter. you can assume that there's not going to be any rain or typically not because that's a stable pattern. high pressure has to be involved for the valley fog, for instance like tonight, radiation, fog, fog valley fog all the same thing. but you have to have stable conditions for that to happen. and so we have stable conditions so fog can happen. it's very difficult for showers to happen in that pattern. just picking out some of the hot spots. last night we had lots of marin county storm reports in the street flooding and things like that. and then the story over at ashby avenue and 80. last night, they had the on ramps and the off ramps closed for a while because of the. flooding overnight lows. fog in the big valley fog and the little valleys. temperatures right now are in the upper fifties temperatures tonight will be down into them like we sat down into the
6:50 pm
forties and many places and then the forecast highs tomorrow. very plausible. be a few clouds, but overall. the plan for the next few days. is this with warmer temperatures towards the bay area weakened, so we'll be good with that. i mean again, with rainfall that we've had this early fall. it's been really. really fortunate in many ways, and we're going to continue. hopefully after this, but in the meantime, enjoy the nice drive warm if you will, for this time of your weather. great sir. i like you, bill. thank you. not a great start with cal basketball. jamie kicked off its season today, and it wasn't a pretty sight out on campus sports director mark avancez highlights coming up next and there you have it- woah. wireless on the most reliable network nationwide. wow. -big deal! ...we get unlimited for just 30 bucks. sweet, i get that too and mine has 5g included. that's cool, but ours save us serious clam-aroonies. relax people, my wireless is crushing it.

6:56 pm
rodgers and the packers. odell beckham jr. despite being a great talent is having a miserable year hasn't scored a touchdown. he is indeed a big name, but not a big producer over the past couple of years in the nfl, all right, one of the greatest american born soccer players certainly one of the most talented is calling it a career and in fact, he hails from the bay area. bill as a matter of fact, talking about chris wondolowski after 17 seasons, he's calling it a career. he is the all time mls leading scorer and man did he go out in style on sunday, scoring a goal in his last ever game. in fact, the 171st. of his great career wanted to also went today lasell had a press conference today and later talked to our jason appelbaum, who asked him of all the records you've set. what's the most important to you? the all time game winning goals. uh and

7:00 pm
sorry, bert, i don't have time to play rocks with you. i'm not asking you to play rocks. i'm asking you to collaborate on a research project. although, if there's time, i guess we could play a round of zinc, zinc, piece of quartz. does sound better than cricket. thank you for asking. unfortunately, i have real science to do. but you feel free to rock on. that's how you do it. all right. sheldon, what are you doing? bert's one of the top guys in his field. and somewhere there's a mime who's top in his field, but you don't see me rushing to collaborate with him on new ways to be stuck in a box. also something i would watch instead of cricket. oh.
