computer there. >> i found a few sprinkles. santa rosa .01 in the past hour. this moisture from this front is very, very limited. so we aren't going to see much in terms. rainfall for anyone. a lot of cloud cover, though, and a warmer start to your second half of your weekend. so there is the area of low pressure heading up into seattle and oregon. and the heavy rain, of course, has been in texas. this is shifting from louisiana into mississippi, with the possibility of tornadoes throughout the day today. so we've been looking at rainfall rates very heavy yesterday and locally anywhere from 8 to 12 inches. but notice the red and pink hear moving into the gulf coast area. catching a little bit of a break for the houston area. back home from our exploratorium camera, a few clouds, and it is kind of mild out there with 58 san jose and morgan hill. 57 in half moon bay. good morning san francisco. 58 for you. a few degrees cooler for most of
you with that cloud core sticking around throughout the midmorning hours. and into the -- we should say the early arm in parts of the bay. 58 fair field. 61 livermore. so with the blanket of low clouds, we aren't having that radiational cooling and the heat not escaping into the as fore. it's pretty much with us at the surface. we will look for the temperatures to stay in the 70s. we saw those low to mid-80s yesterday in parts of the inland valley. kind of felt muggy out there. still looking at another system that will complicate situations throughout the middle of the week. hard to pinpoint where that one is going to go. this one you can see with the cloud core and the limited moisture continues to push through.
what little precipitation we have will be in the form of sprinkles. that's about it. held down the cloud cover from southern california. later today, and maybe showers tonight and we will look for temperatures to cool off with the cloud cover today and then with this system. but let's take a look how it moves. looks like it's holding together just fine. here it is tuesday. and then it's supposed to split. we will have some energy south, some energy to the north, and really can't pinpoint a good amount of rain like we had been looking at last week. so as we go through wednesday, that's the day we will get some showers. looks like the best chance will be perhaps in the north bay and then the central coast. so, being, we will fine-tune that as more indications of better models coming into alignment in the days ahead. 72 oakland today with low 70s santa cruz and upper 70s from livermore to morgan hill today. san rafael about 72 degrees.
the accuweather seven-day forecast, with he have some cooler weather by about five degrees today. arm sun and temperatures rebound back into the mid-80s monday and tuesday. that the ahead of the next system. that could bring us just a little bit of rain, and then thursday, friday into halloween the last weekend of october lacking warm and dry. >> yeah, i have really been surprised how warm it's been in the last couple of weeks. >> yeah, really it's been attributed to the higher-than-normal sea surface temperatures. >> thank you, lisa. bay area researchers are trying to perfect a technology that uses electricity in the brain to fight debilitating diseases. as cheryl jennings discovered, it could soon become much more effective. >> watching jim wiseman's hand tremors is like tracking a passing storm.
it stops the moment researchers at stanford turn on a surgically implanted device that keeps his parkinson's symptoms in check. >> the dbs literally just gets rid of it. >> the device is known as a deep brain stimulator or dbs. it floods the brain with electronic signals, essentially calming the neuropathways in many cases. but they believe stimulation could be far more effective if it were more precisely targeted. >> this is how we've been doing brain pacing for the last 30 years. the brain pacing for deep brain stimulator is on all the time. >> now she and her team are working to make dbs behave more like modern computerized pacemakers which only activate when a patient's heartbeat gets out of rhythm. to accomplish that in the brain, jim wears a sensor that will tell when his tremors are starting. >> we are actually programming a computer that will adjust the neurostimulation based on the patient's symptoms.
the sensor sends a signal to the miniaturized computer that tells the stimulator when and where to activate. and at what power level. >> by tweaking the settings, the stanford team is hoping to find the precise electronic frequencies needed to control his tremors without blanketing his brain with electricity. >> what that means is the stimulator is not on for as long as it might be. it might be lower voltage and we may not see some of the side effects we can sometimes see with deep brain stimulator. >> now you can see the tremors coming back when i turned off the stimulator. >> beyond safety, she believes the system, known as closed-loop dbs, will allow researchers to target multiple symptoms, such as disrupted muscle motion, and perhaps some day adding sensors that adjust the settings if a patient is sitting or walking. >> our goal is that the patient really shouldn't have to worry about it. that the pacemaker will seamlessly adjust itself based on what the patient is doing. >> freeing the patients, like

when i was sidelined with blood clots in my lung,h. it was serious. fortunately, my doctor had a game plan. treatment with xarelto®. hey guys! hey, finally, somebody i can look up to... ...besides arnie. xarelto® is proven to treat and help reduce the risk of dvt and pe blood clots. xarelto® is also proven to reduce the risk of stroke in people with afib, not caused by a heart valve problem. for people with afib currently well managed on warfarin, there's limited information
on how xarelto® and warfarin compare in reducing the risk of stroke. you know, i tried warfarin, but the blood testing and dietary restrictions... don't get me started on that. i didn't have to. we started on xarelto®. nice pass. safety first. like all blood thinners, don't stop taking xarelto® without talking to your doctor, as this may increase your risk of a blood clot or stroke. while taking, you may bruise more easily and it may take longer for bleeding to stop. xarelto® may increase your risk of bleeding if you take certain medicines. xarelto® can cause serious, and in rare cases, fatal bleeding. get help right away for unexpected bleeding, unusual bruising, or tingling. if you have had spinal anesthesia while on xarelto®, watch for back pain or any nerve or muscle related signs or symptoms. do not take xarelto® if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. tell your doctor before all planned medical or dental procedures. before starting xarelto®, tell your doctor about any kidney, liver, or bleeding problems. you know xarelto® is the #1 prescribed blood thinner in its class. that's a big win. it is for me. with xarelto® there is no regular blood monitoring and no known dietary restrictions.
