it includes cases erin is currently prosecuting as well as some ideas for how to stop this from happening to you. i posted a lincoln our website at abc7news.com. >> wow. all right, michael, thank you very much. >> all right. time to turn 0 our weather because it's time to get some more rain. >> yes, it is, drew. >> those umbrella are going to get a workout this week. we're tracking rain that will likely last a couple days around here. doppler 7 right now, what we are se seeing with the active sweep, isolate the sprinkles right now. the heaviest rain will move in tomorrow. temperature wise for this time of night, we're pretty mild. numbers right now on either side are 50 degrees. overnight numbers will settle in the mid if not upper 40s as we await the storm to arrive first thing tomorrow morning. this is a moderate level 2 system to start the school and workweek. heavy at times tomorrow. the flood risk will be highest in the north bay where the rain lingers the longest.
winds will be an issue area wide. we could see gusts well over 30 miles an hour. let's time this out for you tomorrow. future weather will get you into the morning commute. watch the time stamp here. 8:00 on your monday morning. it's a relatively calm commute outside of the north bay, but the north bay will likely see some showers developing. everything starts to really ramp up into the afternoon. so monday afternoon you see heavier showers in the north bay with pops of yellow and orange on your screen. we're just beginning to see showers outside of the north bay at that hour. but into the evening, the evening commute looks to be a mess tomorrow. so i would add some extra time because we are tracking heavy rain for the monday evening commute with those yellows and oranges you see on your screen. once that heavy rain arrives, it's going to stick around. even by monday night aave this essentially sitting and stalling right over us. pso it's not only the rain we'r tracking, it's also the wind. a wind advisory will go into effect tomorrow at noon. essentially for a highest elevations like the east bay hills and the north bay mountains and the santa cruz mountains where the winds will
be strong. combine that with a saturated soil. we could see trees come down and also some power lines come down as well. under stormy conditions, highs on your monday, pretty much topping out in the mid, if not upper 50s in the afternoon. but the storm is going to get a fresh injection of energy on tuesday, so we're going to upgrade it to a 3. a strong storm on the storm impact scale for tuesday that heavy rain continues. that's just going to compound the flooding issues, so flooding is very likely on tuesday. and the winds get even stronger. winds 30 to 50 miles an hour are very likely. so we wetake a look at the rainfall potential over the next two days and it's pretty significant especially in the north bay. the north bay, we do anticipate a lot of spots seeing well over 4 inches of rainfall in a very short amount of time. even outside of the north bay, most spots around the bay shoreline, 1 to 3 inches of rainfall is very likely. so it is for that flash flood watch will go into effect for areas outside of the north bay, that includes san francisco,
oakland and san jose. our ground is already saturated, so any rainfall will cause flooding on roadways and also rapid rise on our small creeks and streams. if you live near a small stream or creek over the next couple of days, keep an eye on the water level because it could rise very quickly. a flood watch will go into effect for the entire north bay tomorrow, and what we are watching with that heavy rainfall are the rivers in the north bay, especially the napa and the russian river. so the russian river at guerneville and the napa river near napa, with the forecasted rainfall, flooding is very likely by wednesday morning. so if you live along either of those rivers, please take precautionary measures because the water will likely rise over the banks. not only rain. it's a lot of snow coming to the sierra. a winter storm warning in effect, above 5,000 feet. look at these numbers, 6 to 8 feet of fresh powder is likely, so do not try and travel to the sierra. not only tomorrow, but through thursday morning as this major storm moves through. so the accuweather seven-day
forecast, rain and wind tomorrow. there's that flooding possible on tuesday with that strong storm. rain and wind continues wednesday. a brief break friday, and then another storm coming this weekend. meteorologist mike nikko will give an update on the storm as it moves through tomorrow morning starting at 4:30. it is a wet week ahead, guys. >> thanks, drew. >> still ahead on abc7 news at 11:00, how close to 200 alright,yeah!excited? waaahoo... well... that was fun, right? it's time to get more. lower fares. better service. sweeter rewards. alaska airlines.

quiet commute. everything changes in the afternoon and the evening, so the evening commute is just going to be a mess. we're going to see rounds of heavy rain by monday evening and the storm will just intensify as we head into tuesday. so on the storm impact scale, it gets an upgrade to a strong level 3 storm, that heavy rain continues, just going to compound the flooding issue. so flooding is very likely in a lot of small streams and creeks, even on roadways, and possibly our rivers in the north bay on tuesday and into wednesday. even some strong winds there. the accuweather seven-day forecast got a wet week, starts tomorrow, kind of peaks here on tuesday with that strong storm, but still, the only break we really get, guys, will come on friday before more wet weather comes in saturday and sunday. >> all right, thanks, drew. >> in the wake of steph curry, everybody thinks they can shoot a three now. >> it's crazy when you think how many three's are being shot right now. ago. what was once a specialty is now a necessity.

>> announcer: abc sports sponsored by river rock casino. >> it's hard to argue the three ball rules the nba led by the splash brothers, the warriors jump started the trend. now nearly half the teams are following it. three-point attempts per game league wide have never been higher. i had an opportnity to ask steve kerr how the game has forever changed. >> curry for three. the lead back up to 7, that's his 6th three-pointer. >> two years ago, that's when it felt like everybody not only started shooting more three's, but playing faster. they go hand in hand. you can look at the three-point numbers, the attempts have gone way up for everybody across the board. but so has pace, and so part of d oot three's in transition.the and that was never really something that was done when i
wa three in transition, the coach would look at you -- i don't care who it was -- look at you, what are you doing? we can get that shot any time we want. now that is looked at as a good shot. and you have a whole league full of coaches and players who are implementing systems or practicing looking for those three-point shots constantly. and it's been, it's been really dramatic. >> big men who can shoot. i know that was one of the thing, demarcus can shoot the 3. k.d. obviously. when jonas came in, that was one of the things, he can shoot the three. is that one of the prerequisites, the three shooting ability? >> the thing that's changed is the power forward position, four man. four man doesn't exist any more. you can have so much better spacing if you have just one big guy. and now sometimes like milwaukee, even their big guy can shoot. rick lopez is shooting three's. so the amount of room you have to guard defensively, the amount
of court to cover is dramatically increased. so i think defense has never been more difficult than it is right now because of what we're talking about. >> how much further can this go? >> i think houston has, has tested the boundaries. and i think milwaukee has done the same thing. you know, i don't know how much further it can go than where it is right now. but then again, i probably would have said the same thing five years ago. >> well, the santa cruz warriors took over oracle arena tonight. the crowd happy as they played the oklahoma city blue. he loves playing the blue. look at the nice a ferslf led the to 26 points 26 rebounds. darius morris added 21 razz he hits a nice little thr senior d stanford hosted number 17 arizona state. elana smith's final game on the

ouch, in conference play. final round of the world golf classic mexican championship, justin thomas, what a day. shot up the leaderboard with a 9 under, 62. everything working for him. on third, that nearly went in the hole. too much back spin, but when it finally stopped, he had a long birdie putt. keep watching it roll and roll. long birdie putt, but remember, i said he was having a day? yeah, how nice is that? he finished in 9th overall. meanwhile dustin johnson would take the tournament. he had a strong weekend. today he shot a 5 under 66. he finished 21 under on the tournament. held off rory mcilroy for his 20th pga tour victory.victory.v. yeah, made a cool 1.7 mill in the process. not bad. abc7 sports report is sponsored by river rock casino. i know they work hard. they train hard. $1.7 million playing golf. every time i say it -- >> yeah. for most guys it's a beer.
