berkeley hills there. so shot all the way across the bay and into san francisco lows overnight, though, getting chillier and chillier. we're dropping into the 40's tonight. even some 30's in our far north bay like santa rosa coming in at 36 tonight, a 49 in downtown open. we're expecting in 43 degrees and downtown san jose winds are going to be a factor as we get into late tonight and early tomorrow morning. so that's really going to feel a lot of from the one we felt today. in fact, we're going to see gusts of up to 20, maybe 25 miles per hour as we get through the morning hours and into the afternoon, especially at the coast and some are inland valley locations. if things are going to feel a cooler than what we fell today. plus, the temperatures dropping a little bit in 2 in the afternoon hours talking about those afternoon highs are only topping out into the 60's tomorrow. so find your neighborhood downtown san francisco 62 degrees tomorrow 63 with a lot of sunshine in oakland, but still breezy and
cool and 65 for the high in downtown san jose, your thanksgiving week. here's a look at your seven-day around. they forecast. we're going to get a lot cooler as we get towards the middle of the week and into thanksgiving. and then as we get into black friday, 60's will be the highs there into the weekend with a lot of sunshine. but look at those overnight lows, inland. we're dropping into the low 40's. and again, we could be seeing a lot of 30's as we get into wednesday and thursday could be waking up. it's a little bit of frost on the through the next couple of days. that's a look at weather. >> and now kron 4 sports. >> the sharks come into tonight's matchup with the hurricanes losers of 4 of their last 5 games. they got off to a great start to the season, but it's been kind of a drag as of late. what other time to turn around the fortunes them tonight. and guess what, kron. 4 sports reporter kate rooney. she is live at the shark tank with a preview. kate.
>> hey, jason. yeah. you said if the sharks got a few high this season but lately some lows and now there are 17 games into the season. a few trends are starting to merge the biggest trend right now is that the sharks need some help scoring goals. after all, it is hard to win games without scoring goals in the sharks have scored just 8 in the last 5 games. as you said, they also lost 4 of those matchups. they're averaging just over 2 and a half goals per game. that's 25th and the nhl not great. so santa knows that even though there are these and flows. they have to start figuring it out and figuring it out fast today. they recall the rookie from the developmental league san jose barracuda scott reedy is the leading scorer for the berry could out. he's second among all rookies in that league. and today it was a left wing jasper weatherby said that he was really doing its best to turn the scoring drought into a positive thing. >> every team is going to go to some kind of how you handle
so for us it's a great learning loss and we can look at some of those games and say, hey, this is how we get to our identity is how we can win so it's i think that, you know, having this could be a blessing in disguise. i'm just, you know, how do we respond how we learn at the end of the day, it's a you know, you can when you can show off and then those lessons and make those improvements and adjustments. you're going to get better hockey team down the stretch. >> so here is something worth noting the sharks or playing without their leading goal scorer from last season. that's a cain who is currently serving a 21 game suspension for violating nhl covid protocols. his suspension is set to be over in about a week. but there still hasn't been any word from the team on whether he will actually rejoin the sharks. we're definitely keeping an eye on that story but for tonight, there's still a game. the puck drops 7.30 is the sharks take on the carolina hurricanes here at essaibi center. jason, back to you. >> thanks for that report,
kate. yeah, it will be interesting to see what happens with cain got busted for that fake covid card. it's been a lot going on down there and with forty-niners. they won 2 games in a row for the first time since september 19th when they beat the philadelphia eagles. now they sit at 500 and they are right back in the thick of a playoff race. but despite the recent success, they still have to tighten up on the lot next week. the minnesota vikings will come into town who are equally as desperate at the niners. both teams sit at 5, 5, both teams coming off of a big win and both teams have playoff goals heading into this season. >> another is some things that we did just way we came out of both oides of the ball. you know, obviously the long drive off and started with just being able to throw the ball like that. and make 3rd been a number of that we need to get better at that. we're fortunate on the last play, you know, scored a kid on it that we were none of legal formation. there things we've got to clean up by no means was a perfect lot better this week out there.
>> the giants made a pair of signings today pitcher anthony desclafani and alex wood are staying in the bay. that's cool. funny signed a 3 year 36 million dollar extension while the lefty would he signed a two-year 20 million dollar extension. that's the funny finished the season with a 13 7 record in a 3.0. 1, 7 and 31 starts. he threw 2 shutout, which was tied for the national league lead. and he had a 152 strikeouts meanwhile, would posted a 10 4 record, a 3.8 3. we and he struck out a 152 batters this season. they were 2 of the glue guys in the rotation obviously. logan would got logan webb. i'm sorry. got most of the headlines. but those 2 guys, they really help the giants during the season and another quick note. buster posey just was named nl comeback player of the for
