the seat of their mother only to get the wrong seat. >> and we were there as one fan opened a box and got something she never thought she would get. >> i'm nervous. >> no fancy bows or wrapping paper but in this plain brown box -- >> oh. it's a little faded but it's nearly exactly the same. >> reporter: the gift of memories. >> last time we saw it was last game at candle stick. >> reporter: on that game, leane and her brother wrote a message on the seat that was their mom's since the stick was built. mom, this will always be your seat. their mom died four years ago. >> my brother thought it up. he's the poet i suppose. i could never think of writing something that sweet on it. >> reporter: that message turned out to be more than sentimental. helped identify mom's seat after it was lost for months. buried in boxes. >> thousands of boxes they
said. >> reporter: in a warehouse. >> of all places indiana. >> reporter: it's like mom is still here. >> sorry. i just keep thinking about how proud my mom would be of my mother and i. she would have thought it was a little silly to write that on there. >> reporter: sitting in seat 10. >> it's more than just plastic and steel and grass on the field, it's a sentimental thing. >> it's finally home with us. i'm good. >> noelle walker, ktvu. >> i don't need anything else actually. >> channel 2 news. >> special memories inside that box. >> those things mean a lot to them. >> to some people they don't mean anything but for that family it means a lot. so glad they got it back. kind of getting spoiled the last few days but changes are on the way. we want to check in with bill to find out what's in store for christmas bill. >> we had record highs today.
>> it felt like it. >> probably 68 at your home kenney. numbers are up there. so we have plenty of records out there. we have the new moon. it's actually transitioning right now. this new moon is partly or very responsible for the king tides that we've been experiencing the last few days. the moon when you get into that new moon phase, there's another pretty shot. you get the tendency to get the bigger tides because the sun and the moon are pulling very aggressively on the earth and creating the high and low tides. for us we had records today. the san francisco tied the record downtown at 68 degrees. oakland was 71 degrees. downtown that broke a record. some more records show up here. in oakland they tied a record. december23rd and we're doing upper 60s. you see the rain up here in portland. this whole area is going to drop down as we head into the next 17 hours or so. it's a rapid mover. it's going to fly through here. it's going to start off right after lunchtime. we do start off with fog tomorrow morning as we did this
morning. there was a lot of it in san jose. a lot of it in the central valley. right through temperature pulls, you get fog and you'll get it. you got this morning. you will see it again tomorrow morning. and then immediately after the fog burns off. or goes away. this system moves in. so overnight lows tonight in the 40s. look for the patchy valley fog. this is a computer model. i want you to see. here's the coastal fog. this is right now. watch coastal fog, boom. valley fog boom. and they start to merge. that kind of merge when you see these two fogs, two different type radiation fog. and induction fog or coastal fog it's all the same thing. when you merge you get really poor visibility. the richmond bridge, bay bridge, all the bridges around the bay. it could be a real problem for the ferry. and the coastal fog gets in there as well. sort of enhances the valley fog. visibility tomorrow could be a
problem. this is 11:00 right around lunchtime. watch the pattern shift. everything starts going this way. and that's the system moving in. so it's 7:00 a.m. tomorrow morning. coastal fog then everything goes like this. and there comes the weather system right on cue. about noontime 1:00. looks like it's going to bring showers up to the fair field area. it already beat through santa rosa. look how quick it's moving. there by 3:00 it's down to fremont. a couple of hours later then gone. so as far as rainfall accumulations, not going to be jumping that much rain right. how could it it's not sticking around that long. forecast highs tomorrow mild because well we're not getting the rain right away. so there'll be a chance for things to warm up before the showers get here. so lunchtime will see some sun, we'll see sun probably before that in many places and temperatures will see the low 60s just in time for the clouds to get here and the rain to get here. it's good news. i was going to say we need the water but it's amazing how much rain we've got. some areas you know this guys. some areas we have 50% of like places like oakland. 50% of the annual rainfall is
already taken care of. sounds pretty great. >> and a lot in december. that great moon shot too. i love that. >> show us later again tonight too. at 10:00. >> okay. >> thank you, bill. the bay area is reaching out for hispanic families to sign up for covered california. they worry they'll expose a relative to deportation. >> we want people to know not only is it free but confidential. their information is not used for anything outside of eligibility enrollment. we're doing that through markets and we have fliers out. we also have changed our commercials and marketing campaign to remind people of that process so that they can be sure rein confident -- sure and confident when they go to someone to enroll. the 49ers alden smith talked to reporters today and he comes under the microscope for his connection in the ray
not really for the game is it. >> a year ago we were talking about them going to the play offs or super bowl favorites or at least make it deep into the play offs. but the last thing the 49ers wants is one of their players in the news for the wrong reason. and at least that's where alden smith is today as he was implicated by ray mcdonalds accuser in the sexual assault case. but implicated only to say that smith was drinking with them. something that smith denied vehemently today. he did admit he was briefly with mcdonald and the alleged victim on the evening in question, though. as he was speaking with the media earlier today. >> as far as it's concerned i was over at ray's house for close to an hour. i didn't drink one thing as far as it goes relating to that i have nothing else to say that's not my issue or my problem. >> what did you do later that
-- >> i spent time with my son. >> there you go. and we get to talk about some real sports now. and what a night it is for the stanford cardinal basketball team. a game just complete as they beat one of the nation's best. number nine texas. stanford going at it with jonathan jones in the final moments. in fact, last 25 seconds he hits that clutch jumper against texas to help send the game into overtime. johnny dawkins and company will take a one point lead into the final moments and jason randall has really been lights out for that clutch jumper giving them a three point lead 10.1 seconds left and as you see, they're pretty pumped up about it. texas as we said number nine in the country had a couple of cracks at it in the final moments. it's a no go. and stanford comes out on top 74-71 undoubtedly their biggest game of the year. texas beat cal early this season.
quite a night for the cardinals that's the sporting night for now. we have the warriors in action shortly. and we'll tell you how they did against the warriors. thieves targeting last minute christmas shoppers. the strategy they're using and what you can do to make sure you don't become a victim. >> and we're always here for you on ktvu.com, facebook and twitter. we leave you know with that beautiful picture of bill what do they call it the new moon. >> the new moon. >> we're back with more news at 10:00. see you then.
oh, i forgot to ask. did it hurt? did what hurt? when you fell from heaven and landed on earth. i didn't fall from... oh. [ laughs ] because i'm an angel!
