in the central valley in the winter, today it never left but it is normally gone by the afternoon and now has a big head start to keep going into tonight and tomorrow morning. it over in the delta and the east bay, first tonight, then will creep into the north bay, santa rosa, plan on fog not only there but we have fog across the san mateo bridge this morning. on a day we did not have fog on the golden gate bridge. this is reversed as the fog is coming in from the east, not our usual fog from the pacific, the tule fog for the central valley. it will not be all that cold with low-50s for most of us and a few upper-40s with daytime highs tomorrow in the low-70s. the bears will be swimming tomorrow. anything you want to do outside will be great. the fog is gone by 11:00 in the morning with maybe a few high d

a wh the system to our northwest. the first one tries to get here late monday into tuesday but it falls apart. we may get a sprinkle between 1:00 a.m. and 3:00 a.m. on tuesday. but that is not a big deal. farther out into the pacific, more systems out here trying to develop and the next one tries to get here by thursday. if we go back to the map that shows us what the accumulated rainfall will look like between now and then, clearly, the storms are going up in that area . thursday at 6:00 p.m., we have not gotten anything yet but from thursday, second half of the day over night into friday, maybe some light rain but not super impressive or likely at this point. i do not have rain in the forecast yet. but a be cool down as we go from 76 tomorrow to 65 in san jose by thursday. today and tomorrow the two warmest days by far of the
6:52 pm
seven-day forecast and that plays out. the north dave alley, 76 tomorrow and 63 on thursday. if we do get any rain from that system on thursday, it would be the north bay valleys through sonoma, napa, marin is the most likely to notice any of that. i do not have it on the right now but we will watch it and let you know as we get closer. what if you could stay healthy for the rest of your life? think about it. the bay area researchers

as the baby boomers swell the ranks of the elderly, the scientific community is turning
6:55 pm
its attention to the causes of age-related illnesses. >> as john ramis shows us, and institute in nevada has been a big player in the effort to find out why the body ages and how to stop it. >> reporter: is at the fountain of youth? not yet. but the research being done is challenging the limits of the human lifespan. there is excitement in her laboratory. she and her young research team are studying the effects of aging on tiny worms in a process called senescence. normally cells will continue dividing to rejuvenate tissue, or they die. however, senescence cells in blue stop dividing but they don't die. instead, they begin secreting toxic enzymes that cause inflammation. >> the tissue so signs of low- level chronic inflammation and, that goes on for a long time, eventually it will destroy the
6:56 pm
tissue. >> reporter: at 65, human bodies begin to develop degenerative illnesses and the doctor has been granted $27 million to study if senescence may be causing it. >> those cells can contribute to virtually all of the diseases that we know go up with age, which is 99% of the diseases in the clinic. >> reporter: things like cancer, alzheimer's disease, diabetes, osteoporosis, even diminishing eyesight, they all may be affected by this process. >> the hope is that by understanding what is underneath the aging process, the molecular mechanism, you can identify the factors for all these diseases and instead of treating them individually as they occur, we are getting to the record of the problem. >> reporter: the ceo says the institute's ultimate goal is to extend the human lifespan to 100 years while limiting chronic illnesses to about the last five years of life.
6:57 pm
>> our goal is to transfer everybody into a centenarian so that everyone can live to 90, 95 in good health. >> reporter: they are getting good help, using mice as subjects, they are joining a berkeley based institute and a $70 million effort called the project to understand and possibly stop the aging process. this doctor says there are even hints it may be possible to reverse the effects of aging, allowing humans to actually wind back the clock on their bodies. >> there is hope and excitement that we are on the verge of changing the way we will age and the perception of how we age. >> reporter: just because we can do something does not mean we should, how would it affect the what if i wanted to be 100? humanity will have to wrestle with it but for now science is just trying to figure out if it
6:58 pm
may be possible. if you would like to hear more about the project and the institute, we have posted our full interview with the ceo on kpix.com . tomorrow be one night only special from adele airs right here. >> she tells oprah how it all came together. >> in los angeles where i had to recover from everything that happened in my last few years in my life, this was the perfect opportunity. it will look elegant and i will tell filthy jokes, a whiplash forum. >> you can watch the special by adele at 8:00 p.m. tomorrow night right here. her voice is amazing and it will be nice to hear more about her. i don't know much. >> we will find out tomorrow night. >> can you sing the songs? >> no, but you can.
6:59 pm
>> only when it is a karaoke machine but it will be a wonderful program to watch on
