on the highway to see how bumper and bumper it is. hard to blame them, because it is early in the season. we want to take advantage of it. more moisture is on the way. some snow in the sierra, some rain in the bay area. not nearly as much, but we take what we can get. some changes as the storm system will be sliding into northern california. the bulk of the energy will miss us to the north, but close enough to give us a chance for a few showers tomorrow. these are going to be very few and far between. a few blips, radar freckles on the simulation. a passing shower, then it will dry out again. be flexible with any outdoor plans. don't cancel anything or rearrange anything. it will be very light, a trace of rainfall with the showers and move through. then we dry out for halloween. we will freeze the maps as we head toward trick-or-treat time, and things are looking good. we see a mix of loud and sunshine during the day. kids are heading out for their

with more clouds, and then upper 60s to around 70 point the extended forecast keeps temperatures below average. rain chances are late sunday night into monday. dry out tuesday and start today wednesday, and more showers wednesday night that could linger into thursday. sunday night and into monday, and again by wednesday night, and early thursday, then we try it again for the end of next week. we hope there are more rain chances further down the line. the 49ers cannot seem to squash that injury bug in santa clara. it has bitten again, ending a season, but hopefully also reviving a career at the same time. it'll make more sense when i tell you next. the burning question today, kyle shanahan's presser,
in hollywood, this would be the end. but our here, we are just getting started. introducing the all-new nissan frontier. hindsight is always 2020, but even 19 months ago, many were scratching their heads. the 49ers traded buckner, and they felt they had his replacement ready in the draft. things have not gone according to plan. he will miss the rest of the season after undergoing knee surgery. that's the same need that cut his rookie season jordan 2020.

pretty quickly. >> they missed nine of their final 10 shots. steph curry was held scoreless again in the fourth quarter, plus overtime. this after scoring 36 in the first three quarters. the big stat that led to the overtime loss, 23 turnovers. >> how many film sessions do you think you've had where you discussed turnovers? >> one or two, one or two. yeah. last night was pretty blatant point >> we have to take this and learn from it. we can't cry about it. it sucks to lose. it sucks to lose at home. it is what it is, and we have to apply it to what is next. >> back to the 49ers, kyle shanahan's halloween will be spent trying to tame the bears. after a win, hopefully he can focus on some candy. the neighborhood or his kids will be trick-or-treating, and he is a particular kind that he likes. >> i am a big swedish fish guy.
i like swedish fish. my kids hook me up with it. they know i like it. when they get it, i usually steal from their bags late at night. i always like halloween, because that is katie for me. >> solid pick. swedish fish. i like to add sour and maybe go with sour patch kids, but sweet, give it to me. give it to me. that is sports. my name is ken bastida -- >> baghdad, fires, earthquake point >> next, we look back on ken bastida's legendary career here on kpix , on the night of i saw you toss the kites on high... improved vision coverage. so you can focus on every little detail. one of many cost-saving medicare advantage benefits from scan health plan for 2022.

to tell stories and be in the middle of things? >> we would check with you tomorrow point >> ken came over to channel 5 from radio, and i remember looking at him on the air and thinking, does he wear flannel shirts all the time? he was such a mountain man, with this huge mustache, and all of this hair. he was always taking those stories that put him in the sierra, or on a river, or outside somewhere. when i met him in the studio, and when he started anchoring, and they put him in a suit, i almost didn't recognize him. >> who is the real ken bastida? we turned to a reliable source who has known him, well, forever point >> 65 years, and he's my son point >> meet ken's mom. she gave us the lowdown point >> as a child, he was always a storyteller. he would sit his brothers, and tell them stories, and tell them this, and tell them that. >> can was born and raised in the bay area, went , d studied broadcast journalism at sf

>> as you ride off into the sunset, best wishes to you and your family during this next chapter in your life. i have a ken bastida story. i started here -- >> only one? >> i have many, but this is the one i think resonates with all of us here at kpix . i started here 10 years ago, from palm springs. i was so nervous. it was my first newscast. i was anchoring with the great ken bastida. and he said to me, don't worry. i'm never going to let you fail. and you never did. it has been an honor. >> you, you good when you got here, so, i was just helping you along, to get a little bit better, and we had a good group of people here. mom, i know you are watching, don't believe anything these people are telling you about me. it is all a big lie, okay? i am just the same as i always
