answered when a teen from kentucky claimed he was the missing boy. but dna proved that was not true. >> it's kind of back to ground zero for us. reliving everything that did happen and renewing the loss. >> so gut-wrenching for that family. a federal judge is ordering elon musk and the sec to work it out. they want musk charged with contempt, claiming he violated their settlement by tweeting about tesla's production. that settlement was reached in the first place after musk tweeted last year about taking the company private which caused shares to skyrocket. the judge instructed both sides to work things out and come back in two woks. jeff and mckinzie bezos have finalized their divorce. even after dividing assets, he's

actually get things that's a fa. the assembly man denies he introduced the bill as retaliation because he was recently represeimanded. the team says starting at 6:30 tomorrow morning they're going to give hourly updates. gates will open just after 7:00 a.m. but tarps are on stand by and the first pitch could be delayed. >> we should do a little pool of when the game's going to start. >> oh. let's watch jeff's forecast first and then on that forecast as we move through tomorrow, less in the way of rain and this thing may get out of here a little sooner. i do not think we'll be under a cancellation right now, but definitely could get delayed a little pit. let if you are curious about the opener, we have the rain starting early tomorrow morning. at least a chance of it.
and i'm thinking we'll hold a chance of rainfall and showers through about 2:00 in the afternoon, but the new change as of today is after 2:00, we should start to dry out. so that's why wie will not have the game canceled, but it heymae postponed a little bit, and that is the best news. we have spotty showers near the peninsula. this is coming from a cold front that is starting to fall apart right now. so we're not worried about any heavy rainfall from this storm system. but this second storm out here, that's the better bet of rainfall as we head through tomorrow. let's get you all set for that morning forecast tomorrow. and you can see across the bay area, we have a spotty chancfal. i think we're going to be doing just fine tomorrow, will be able to get through just fine. south bay at 51 to start out and more 50s for the east bay, san
francisco and the north bay. starting at 7:30, things are just starting to get started. also the peninsula. the worst of it happens at 11:30 in the morning. widespread coverage of rainfall across the bay area, with possibly heavier pockets. but the good news, as of today, this tries to get out of here by 2:00. starts to break up. then i really think at this point, by 5:00, 5:30 we should really see this storm system who having moving on out. with that storm moving in and out faster, totals are also down. trace amounts to a third of an inch possible. we're looking for a third of an inch across the north bay. i know, you're saying, what about the sunshine? we've not sun in that extended forecast. you've just got to wait for it.
as we hit saturday, still holding onto some spotty rain. once we hit next tuesday, the sun starts to come out into wednesday and thursday. best rain chance ahead comes on friday morning. hold on to a spotty chance on saturday and maybe by next monday we have a slight chance of showers in the forecast. so this kind of is the best scenario. we're still getting rainfall, but it looks like it should be out of here in time to avoid any kind of cancellation. >> coming in with all kinds of good news.
