satellite showing you tonight the clouds are gathering. you can see a light return near cloverdale and ukiah. i lifted our surface observations. it's not reaching the ground just yet. but rain will move in the next 24 hours. we'll take you outside on this tuesday night. a live look from our emeryville camera showing you pretty decent visibility at this hour. this time tomorrow we do expect drops to be on that lens. we bring back the storm impact scale. we use this exclusively mere at abc 7. we rank our storms from 1 light to 5 severe. gives you an idea of every storm that moves through. one moving through tomorrow evening and really lingering into friday morning, it does rank a 1. a light system on the storm impact scale. light to moderate showers at times. tomorrow evening especially there is that chance of a thunderstorm since the storm prediction center has placed the buy area under that risk. but the main takeaway from the system, it's not a soaking rain
unfortunately but we will get? beneficial rain out of it. temperaturewise out there right now, when you have overcast skies like we have, what you do get is a slow cooling process. so right now san francisco is in the upper 50s at 58. 52 in he canland, 54 in san jose, and right now napa checking in at 56 degrees. the call from accuweather the next 12 hours not too chilly. you don't see any 30s on the board overnight tonight. most spots will start out in the 30s. corner of your screen, we'll stop at 8:00 in the morning when we're in the heart of that morning commute, and right now it looks like we're just dealing with cloud cover. perhaps there could be an isolated shower along the coast but the wet weather looks to hold on until the afternoon. 4:30 in the afternoon the system really getting its act together. some light showers beginning to push on shore. but it's really by 6:00, 7:00 at night the evening commute does look wet. future weather showing you these yellows and even oranges
isolated on your screen. here's the chance that we could have a thundershower moving through the region. any thundershower that pops up could contain lightning and hail and even by 11:00 at night we're still tracking some isolated showers through the region. futuretracker rainfall with this system as we get you into friday morning you can see about a quarter to 3/4 of an inch of rain is a good estimate. where we do see a downpour set up we could see a little bit more than that, but most spots will fall into that range. so highs on your wednesday take the umbrella with you as you head out the door. you're likely not going to need it first thing in the morning but you will need it into the afternoon and the evening as that rain moves through. upper 50s to lower 60s will be your highs on your wednesday. here's the accuweather seven-day forecast. there's that chance of a thundershower tomorrow evening. some on and off showers through thursday. it's not a washout. and the showers even linger into friday morning but we dry out friday night and the weekend just a xwlend of sunshine and cloud cover. meteorologist mike neca will
i need to preface this by saying this is not a joke. as if traffic in los angeles isn't bad enough, these chickens come along and fowl up, ha ha, the morning commute. the highway patrol posted video of? two dozen birds on interstate 605 this morning. reports say a lane was shut down for about an hour while officers rounded up the birds. look at his face. the chickens may have been in a crate that fell off a truck. >> free eggs for everybody, though. >> i guess. or something. larry is here with sports. everybody interested in what's going on with the raiders.
day after day i'm the first to see change. to see people go out, and come back new. princess cruises. the best premium cruise line. 7-day caribbean cruises from $599. good evening. it's believed jon gruden had a choice between taking over the raiders over the tampa bay buccaneers. he's not going to leave the bucs. we expect he will take the raiders job and work with a quarterback he's admired for years, derek carr. they first became acquainted when carr was at fresno state setting all kinds of passing records for the bulldogs. now, carr spoke to tommy tran with our fresno affiliate kfsn and says he's very comfortable
with gruden if he does indeed join the silver and black. >> i do have a great relationship, a special bond with coach grud thaen i'en that for years now, and that's just been there as him being someone who's a mentor, someone who likes to help quarterbacks, help people he cares about. there's no secret that i've known him and that i love him. so if he's our coach, that's awesome. >> flashback now to carr in 2014 on the espn jon gruden quarterback camp show. this was just before the draft. >> now, i want you. >> right. >> what do you say about that? >> i appreciate that. let's go win some championships now. >> 70% completions. 113 touchdowns. and 24 interceptions. what's wrong with all the reading i've done? i don't see your name up here in these mock drafts. is there something i'm missing? >> no, sir. >> is there a flaw, a dramatic flaw? >> no, sir. >> match made in heaven perhaps. the 49ers finished the year
with a 6-10 record but they looked like a playoff team down the stretch, winning their last five games. and the key obviously was getting jimmy garoppolo. the niners would love to sign jimmy g. to a long-term deal, whether it's that or franchise tag for 25 million. garoppolo will be their quarterback next year. >> you have our assurances and the fans do that we'd like nothing more than to make him a niner for a long, long time. well, while we're talking about lynch he just made the list of 15 hall of fame finalists tweeting "humble honored thankful and blessed." lynch played safety for 15 seasons, made the pro bowl nine times. he was rugged. other finalists include terrell owens, randy moss, ray lewis and brian urlacher. to the ice we go, sharksz north of the border take on the montreal canadiens. joe thornton right place right time right on the doorstep there pokes it in from beside the net. 1-0 sharks and number 8 for joe. in the second period sharks on the rush, bodka the shot.
