happening tonight, the fourth annual superstar gala will support east bay elementary school. this is video from last year's dinner and auction at scott seafood in oakland. the fundraiser benefits superstars literacy. the program provides tutoring and afterschool reading help for more than 400 families at nine schools in the east bay. cheryl jennings and mike niko will serve as emcee. it looks pretty good out there. we have a little bit of fog in the north bay. temperatures are barely at 50 degrees. and from our roof camera, you
can see how sunny it is out there. very light wind. it will be out of the west from our tower camera, numbers in the city will be about 65 today. so it's going to be a nice day. that's a little bit above average. upper 60s in oakland. 6 in san jose and 70 in morgan hill and antioch. very little change tomorrow except the oscars and monday will be warmer. tuesday may be a sprinkle in the north bay and then by late wednesday into thursday, looks like we're going to see a weak storm system, could produce some measurable rain around here but it will be a one on our storm impact scale. we're hoping that march brings much better wetter weather our way than february has. >> we certainly need it. >> yeah. >> lisa, thank you. thanks to you for joining us on the abc 7 saturday morning news. i'm chris nguyen alongside lisa argen, abc news at 4:00 because of the nba on abc. at 5:00 p.m., countdown for warriors and thunder at 5:30,
