tonight the warriors will face off against the memphis grizzlies in a second attempt in advancing to the western conference finals. the dubs are up 3-2 in the series with the grizzlies. >> they are also a four-point favorite against the grizzlies, according to the latest nba odds. tonight's game six will be the biggest game at chase center in the three-season existence of the warriors' new home. good news here, they've got undefeated at home this post season, a win will guarantee them a trip to the conference finals, a loss would push the series back to memphis for a game seven. this weekend, you'll want to keep your eyes on the sky, a total lunar eclipse will happen this sunday. this is video from the last lunar eclipse an astronomer with the space and science center says the eclipse will be under way when the moon rises in the east around 8:04 p.m. he says some of the best spots in the bay area to catch it skyland boulevard in the east bay, inspiration point near tilden park or off highway 92 on
6:15 am
the peninsula. 6:14 is the time and darren, you're tracking the time line for this eclipse. >> let's talk about the timing on that, because technically, len, the eclipse will have started for us on sunday night when the moon rises but you won't notice a thing at that point. at that point it's own penumbral. technically there's shade getting through but you won't be able to tell. let's go through the time line on that, getting to the vid wall and show you how that plays out throughout the course of the evening. the times when you notice a lunar eclipse is happening will be between 8:30, this is sunday night, between 8:30 and 9:53, that's when you're going to get that blood moon, when the moon's going to be red, because the only light hitting it is the light streaming around the edge of us through the atmosphere, and getting the view, kind of looking at sunset, but that red light is cast on the moon. that's why the moon goes red light that. it's like you're seeing every sunrise and sunset around the edge of our atmosphere, the light streaming through that to
6:16 am
illuminate the moon. and it's over by the time we get to 10:55, so those are your times on sunday if you happen to remember, take a look off to the east, the moon should be relatively low still at that point. kind of like the sun's relatively low, came up at 6:02. current temperatures out there are kind of warm for us, for this time of day. coldest number i have is 44 in santa rosa, it's 50 in oakland. those temperatures are already warmer than yesterday. to start the day it's kind of a nice head start and the theme on today is, as much as 12 degrees warmer than yesterday. even if technically saturday is the warmest day in the seven-day forecast, today is the day you step outside and notice there's a warmup on and if we put the numbers on the far edge of the column, where we'll be it's not like we're breaking records today. we're not that far above average. it's just noticeably waurmer thn the past two days have been. you notice it today and we kind of top out saturday before coming back down on sunday to here. this is what the daytime highs
6:17 am
look like today. you can go to 72 for freeh nt mo, 72 in oakland. it will be 78 in san jose, and 28 showing up there for concord, but saturday it's 84 for san jose, but then we come right back down on sunday to the mid-70s, and then most of the seven-day forecast we sit at average so it's really just a quick up and down for today and tomorrow, before things come back down again and into sunday that's what it looks like for the microclimates, inland east bay near 90 on saturday but you're right back down to 80 by sunday. gianna, where are we on our grand tour? >> we're taking a little bit of a tour of san francisco this morning, courtesy of mobile 5, brian kylecy out and about because bay to breakers is this week. we talked about it earlier. on sunday it will be busy. a lot of closures will be in place as well. he just turned past 19th avenue turned onto one of the streets close to there, and headed over to the great highway, which is where the race finishes. so everything should be opened
6:18 am
up after noon, after 12:00 on sunday, so those early morning hours if you're out and about in the city and not participating, you should avoid the area if you can and there are lots of options to get there with public transit. cal train b.a.r.t. adding extra trains. should be easy to get there. let's jump on the freeways. a couple of things going on. friday light bye the only hot spots at the bay bridge wherele meterin mil the metering lights are on. about an hour for the altamont pass. taking public transit, everything is on time and warriors on tap tonight at chase. a lot of people headed out there so if you take muni that is your game ticket is your muni fare so that is a great way to get to the game. that's a look at the rod adways. from underground gems in the bay area to the local sta

6:33 am
is that this isn't how and when i imagined leaving twitter and this wasn't my decision. i was asked to leave after they're taking the company in a different direction. the company was trying to be efficient by pulling back on non-labor costs. experts say the move could be a form of self-preservation. >> they could be in a situation where they think hey, maybe he's going to back out and all he has to pay them is $1 billion. sounds crazy, if he decides to back out. so in a lot of ways, this is them making themselves more attractive to make that takeover happen. >> -- experts questioning whether the takeover could change the bay area tech landscape forever. we know he moved tesla out of the bay area to texas, so questions remain as you know is twitter going to stay here or not. >> a lot of questions apparently this morning especially with the
