rain chances. may see a few showers in the north coast, but what is more promising is that the next lineup of storms may make a run to the south. another week from now it appears we'll see the storms stacking up offshore. that's good news to shut down fire danger and possibly bring more snow to the sierra. breezes pick up thursday. san francisco, 70s friday and saturday. you can see temperatures across the valleys as the winds calm down into the 80s. we could be seeing more rain chances around the corner. back to you. up next, ready for their mission. 90-year-old william shatner and other astronauts headed for space. we'll tell you some of the updates they have to work with. stay with us.
