mateo bridge. it's not going to look anything like this on sunday. she's got the timing of this next storm. category 5 atmospheric river. i didn't even know there were categories for atmospheric rivers. the category 5. sounds like it's at the top of the scale. and it's also a bomb cyclone is that we've called it. yeah. because the surface level of the storm going to drop 24 millibars lasting at least 24 hours just and. >> very localized with moderate to heavy rain for about 12 hours straight from now. until then, though we are tracking a mix of sun and clouds so hope you're enjoying the break from the wet weather because just and it looks like sunday. we're going to need a bigger boat. let's take a look at when tracker for we're seeing some pretty breezy winds out there. but winds are going to how for the 2nd half the weekend 60 miles per hour less with already flash flood watch is in effect for the 2nd half of this weekend. temperatures. right now, though, about 5 to 15 degrees below average half moon, bay 58 degrees low to mid 60's for
everyone else and overnight lows tonight. pretty chilly for those of you in santa rosa, because of that lack a blanket of storm cloud cover that you had last night cooling down to 44 degrees knapp a little bit milder, but still on that chilly side of 48 degrees widespread mid 50's for everyone else and daytime highs tomorrow still going to be on that cold track because remember, we're tracking light scattered showers ahead of this approaching atmosphere river set to arrive early sunday morning and continuing through monday. and we are tracking scattered showers by tuesday and then warmer drier clear conditions by the middle of this upcoming week. >> 60's and 70's returning to the bay area just seen on thursday. so certainly going to look and feel a lot more like winter in the coming days and i know that atmospheric river term. we haven't used in a while. i for one im pretty excited to forecast this this weekend. back to you. i'm nervous. >> we'll see you sunday night. an army veteran searched his
own name on the internet and what he discovered was life changing and it's all thanks to an online researcher who has made it his mission to honor heroes reporter jeremy hubbard has the story as part of our veterans voices series. >> army veteran mark to ville decided to google himself at the urging of a co-worker a few years back. he found a huge surprise. it came recipient of the silver star. and i said, well, that's not me. and he said no, go ahead and read it. so i read it. you know, mike wallace turns out he had earned one of the highest honors for valor in combat and never even knew it. but why do that exactly why might never have known it. if not for this mandate. feels very it was made it his life's work to make sure heroes get the recognition they deserve. doug sterner spend as much as 16 hours a day here at the computer in his pueblo, colorado home compiling a massive database on a website called home of heroes. he's documented some 275,000 recipients of the nation's highest military honors. you need those heroes to inspire
us over stars for more than 2 decades. he's comb through thousands of files folders and documents tracking down what he calls forgotten valor. and i thought, well, it would be an impossible task but said it can't be done. >> but i'm an old army combat engineer. ask us to do something impossible. we will try it's personal for sterner. i wanted to recall the heroism of one of my friends. he was killed in action 2 months after a came home from vietnam and was awarded a silver star. he wasamy closest friend. and i determined that he would never be forgotten. but stern or didn't want any military heroes forgotten. he knew millions of military records have been damaged or destroyed over the years. but he's rifled through the national archives and other sources as located duplicate records and has carried out a herculean task. many assumed the military was already doing in the military. >> and they present award. they give a citation to the individual. but in some cases the pentagon can't track down the recipients of those citations and in some rare
cases, the recipients don't want the award and don't want anyone to know you get a medal for heroism. it's not something you want to talk about that medal that you've got represents the worst day of your life. and that's why they're lost to history. no idea. no idea. lost to history is just how it seemed mark to ville story would end. it was describing our firefighters 1984. turns out he was involved in a 45 minute shootout at the dmz 37 years ago as a russian man attempted to defect across the border to cross the line and he was chased by north koreans to ville and his unit. save that defectors life an act of bravery that earned him the 3rd highest award for valor it is pretty which she only discovered when that google search led him to doug sterner website may. so they've been looking for me for a long time. believe it or not, his squad had been awarded the silver star 21 years ago, but none of them could track marked down but doug's hard work connected all the dots. and i told him i really didn't care. they can mail it to me.
