home in santa clara. you can see those tents there. those are potential buyers who lined up overnight. now, those town homes are being sold at a fixed price. so it's on a first come, first serve, basis. meaning there are no-bidding wars. >> it's been a while, i think, since we have seen this activity. but if you are trying to get a house right now and you are trying to buy houses on the resale market, right, so homes that already exist. you are fighting against 5 to 25 other buyers and the prices go up, you know, 5, $700,000 over what the list price is. >> part of a new development called nuevo, they went on sale this morning. they start at $1.2 million. when we come back. that's how you find a bag on the subway. you look inside, there's $100,000 worth of diamond rings. it's exactly what happened to a train conductor. we will tell you what he did, next. and elon musk has something up his sleeve. we will tell you about the special appearance he is making on nbc.

11:15 pm
longer. >> on the up side, it's a great time to sell your car. kelly blue book have seen a 13% increase in used car prices. people leave stuff on trains all the time. but what about this one? a bag full of diamond rings. that's what a conductor found while he was working his shift on the long island railroad, earlier this week. the jewelry portfolio containing 36 diamond ring settings worth -- worth about $100,000. now, that honest conductor, whose name is jonathan, turned them in even before the jeweler who lost them realized he had left them behind. >> it almost didn't seem real. i was like, is this -- this can't be what i think it is. >> it was -- it was exactly that. now, to show his appreciation, the jeweler promised to craft something for him to wear. spacex ceo elon musk is getting ready to host an all new episode of "saturday night live." "snl" tweeted the lineup today.
11:16 pm
miley cyrus is going to be the muvgle guest. he's also made cameos as himself in iron man 2 and the big bang theory and you can catch the new episode of snl in a couple weeks. it is may 8th. watch it right here on nbc bay area. it's live at 8:30, and again at 11:30. pretty cool stuff. you know what else is cool? we are getting some rain. >> rain. >> yeah. we are seeing some of that right now. san francisco and the coast. been looking at some light rain at times. and eventually, some of those sprinkles heading into san jose. right now, 56 degrees. wind will be picking up a lit tonight, you are going to notice that, too. 56 degrees and you see the clouds there around walnut creek. and there, you see the wet roadways returning to the golden gate bridge. 52 right now in san francisco. and speaking of san francisco, we got an early-afternoon start to the giants game tomorrow. watch out for showers. keep in mind, first pitch is after 1:00. odds are better for the first half of the game to be seeing
11:17 pm
those showers. things should be trending a bit drier towards 5:00 and 6:00. so we will be watching that closely early in the afternoon. first half the day, i think will be the wetter half of your sunday, between about sunrise and lunchtime. and then, for the afternoon, we will begin to see a little clearing out of the north bay moving to the south. but for areas san francisco southward, showers ongoing to about sunset. so, in terms of rain totals, most of the bay area, we are still thinking probably less than a quarter inch of rain for a few spots. fremont, maybe a quarter inch of rain. higher totals likely to be around areas in the north bay and maybe along the santa c mountains as the storm continues to come on in. so notice the rain rates picking up tomorrow morning. starting off in the north bay, right around sunrise. that is the yellow and orange you see here and as we head toward 11:00-lunchtime, beginning to see perhaps a few of these isolated showers. but the sunshine and cool air aloft, sometimes gives us a little bit of hail with some of
11:18 pm
those thunder showers. best bet for that is going to be inland, to the north and east. by 6:00, most the action is pushing out of san jose. and then, by this time tomorrow night, things do begin to calm down. and the air, by the way, is cold enough, we have got a winter storm warning in effect. probably see about 6 to 10 inches of snow there. for elevations above 6,000 feet. and snow levels, by the way, as low as 4,000 feet by monday morning. one adjustment to the forecast. may have still some ongoing-north bay showers. maybe one more afternoon. but then after that, the forecast jumps back to summer mode. you can see it right there. middle part of the forecast there. wednesday and thursday. seven-day forecast, right at the bottom of the screen, really tells you the story as we go to these winterlike conditions in the sierra. scattered showers tomorrow, to possibly 70s around san francisco by the middle part of the week. valleys, too, also watching those temperatures climb, from the 50s, to the 80s in just three days. so we get the much-needed rain and we are back to summer mode,
11:19 pm
keep up with all this. over the next seven days. lot going on in the weather here to wrap up the weekend. back to you. >> let's just be grateful for that brief encounter with the rain. >> we will take what we can get, rob. thank you. anthony flores joining us now with sports and more on the hottest team in professional sports. anthony. >> that's right. the green and gold are red hot. how many wins in a row for the a's after another victory against baltimore? i will tell you, stick around, sports is next.
