hillsides around woodside, skyline. so do keep in mind that once the rain starts coming down a lot of the dirt come downs into the roadway. if you're travel together fast or not paying attention or look up ahead, you might come in contact with some of that dirt and basically loose control of the vehicle. >> so of course the message is to slow down and be careful. we stopped in south san francisco. one of many cities putting out information on sandbags for residents, where to get them, and how to set them up. and it looks like for monday morning, your back to school commute for the kids is going to be wet. reporting live in san rafael, christie smith, nbc bay area news. >> got that on the agenda myself tomorrow morning, christie. thank you so much. we're certainly tracking this big storm. you can do the same thing with your smartphone. download the nbc bay area app. click on the weather tab. that's where you can watch the live doppler radar on your iphone or android. it was one year ago next

posting a 5-11 record this season, the team's worst campaign since 2007. 49ers ceo jed york released a statement via e-mail tonight to the media. in it he said, quote, jimmy has been a valuable member of the 49ers organization for the last nine years. well all know he is a man of high character. his contributions on the field and in our community have always been greatly appreciated. this entire organization is proud and grateful to have worked so closely alongside jimmy. we all wish him and his family great success in the future, end quote. now a press conference has been called for tomorrow at 10:30 in the morning as jed york will face questions from the media. you can watch the interactions and comments live over on csn bay area. also coming up later in this news program, we'll hear from our 49ers insider on why right now is the right time for the team to make the move they did and what the future holds in santa clara. that's all coming up in sports. guys? >> all right, brodie, thanks a lot. look forward to that. so coach tomsula was gone.

here is moving away from san mateo. off to the north, approaching oakland and berkeley. we're seeing showers on the approach. right now san jose and most of santa clara valley kind of missing out. this is the first weather system and storm number two already on approach. so it's kind of unique about the pattern. we'll see this week are the storms coming in one after another in a pretty much west-east flow across the pacific. we've had a very strong el nino for the last few months, really. this is the first time we've seen a pattern more typical of a very strong phase el nino. the polar jet stream instead moving quickly from east -- west to east across the pacific and tapping into tropical moisture out of the south, which can boost rainfall. and at times when the tropical jet is aimed in across the coast, you can have gusty winds too. as the storms come in, sometimes they tend to overlap each other. we'll get a little taste as storm one winds down. storm two ramps up towards tomorrow evening. you have three and four.
wednesday into thursday and another one as we start the weekend. so this first system probably not bringing a whole lot of rain, except for the coastal hill tops. we could get over a half an inch there. the stronger system comes in for tomorrow night. that's the system that is going to bring a lot more wind and rain. so for tomorrow morning, morning commute, you see more widespread rain finally cross ago into the south bay to start the day. a bit of a midday break. don't pack away your umbrellas. with storm two, some of the showers redeveloping and increasing in coverage by tomorrow night. highs tomorrow more or less like we had today. mid to upper 50s around san jose. low 50s into the north bay in tri-valley. and then by this time tomorrow night, get ready for a lot more rain and some gusty winds. main event with storm two coming in around midnight there tuesday morning, tuesday morning's commute, you begin to see things trying to clear out as we transition back in between systems, leading up to the next one coming in for wednesday into thursday. you can see the rain drops there. next three days from tuesday into thursday. well still have some rain.
and then friday we may finally catch something of a break. look at that. a bit of a one-day break for the bay area. as we head to saturday, one more system to come through impacting mainly the north bay. so just in case you have some plans for next weekend, looks like right now saturday we'll see some showers. and things begin to dry out on sunday, wrapping this all up, though, for some of the coastal areas the next seven days could pick up probably at least 2 to 4 inches of rain. locally higher amounts in santa rosa. the 10 to 14-day outlook adds another 2 to 4 inches of rain. so the rainfall recovery gets under way this week and it could be sticking around for a while through the next two weeks around the bay area. back to you. >> sounds great. rob, thanks very much. i like when they number the storms we got so many coming in. coming up, are you seeing more teslas on the road? the big milestone the electric car company hit last year, they are everywhere. that's for sure. plus, fantasy football is over for most beam. the reason the game could be finished forever. resolution? facebook ceo mark

saudi arabia. and saudi arabia has now cut off diplomatic relations with iran, giving iranian diplomats their 48 hours to leave the country. and the saudis may already have pulled their diplomats out of iran. now there is no sign this will boil over into conflict. not yet, anyway. but iran's anger is very real. so expect this to get worse. back to you. well, make-believe sports entering a real world battle. tomorrow the two best known sports companies will appear in court again to argue they're not running illegal gambling operations. draft kings and fan duel were hit with a lawsuit when the new york state attorney argue a they'd were run like casinos saying they must give back all of the cash they made in new york last year which by the way is millions. draft king says the lawsuit is based on a misunderstanding of fantasy sports competitions. fan duel says they will fight

>> it is our top sports story this evening here on nbc bay area. i'm brodie brazil. and as you just heard there, jim tomsula after today's game apparently had no idea his role as 49ers head coach was to be come to an end. officially just moments later. what a difference 12 months makes. last january tomsula was the guy for jed york and trent baalke. our matt maiocco addressing why now was the right time to end that contract. the contract and what comes next for the team. >> after last year's disastrous off-season, ceo jed york decided to try to make amends this off-season. so he started immediately. just a few hours after the 49ers' season ending victory over the st. louis rams. jim tomsula fired as head coach. now the 49ers will most likely look outside the organization to an offensive-minded head coach, someone like sean payton, hue
jackson, chip kelly. it has to start on the offensive side of the ball with a new head coach who can instill a winning spirit. >> before all the drama, there was actually a game played at levi's stadium. we pick it up in ot. the rams with a chance to win it all. greg zuerlein's field attempt blocked as the 9ers take over possession. they got the ball in the st. louis 38. blaine gabbert quick pass to quinton patton. patton will make a couple of guys miss. the 33 yard game down to the 5. the very next play, phil dawson is money from 23 yards out. it's up. it's good. that's tend of the 49ers season. they go out as winners today by three point, 19-16. to the raiders, and what a full circle kind of story where charles woodson ended his storied career today where it all first began back in 1998 in kansas city. the future hall of famer playing his final game at that same arrowhead stadium, hoping to go out with one final win.
>> today i get to find out, the whole world get to find out what you playing for. we ain't going to the play-offs. we can't knock them out of the play-offs. so what you playing for? what are you playing for? i need to know that. today i'm going find out what you're playing for. we're playing for the oakland raiders, baby. we're playing for respect. we're playing for the love of the game. >> game 254 on that hall of fame career. charles woodson definitely still knows how to fire up the troops. late fourth quarter, derek carr goes up top to michael crabtree for the touchdown. that's crabtree's ninth td catch of the season. the raid irs all of the sudden down by just six. last chance for the silver and black. carr dumping it off to michael rivera, he needs to get out of bounds so the clock will stop and the raiders can have one last chance. the raiders lose by 6. charles woodson saying his final goodbyes, putting an end to his career.
>> you know, every sunday that i went out and played the game, i gave it 100% effort. and really, that's all you can ask for anybody. i feel that i played at the top of my game for 18 years. and that's -- i'm very, very proud of that. locally, cal basketball at home against number 21 utah was the ivan rabb show. tyrone wallace will lob to it rabb. he'll slam it home. 19 points. 10 rebounds as cal upsets the youths. down on the farm, stanford hosting colorado. we take you to the closing seconds. cardinal down one. john scott, he'll miss the three as the shot clock expires. stanford, they do get the rebound. but roscoe allen can't stay inbounds. colorado ball and colorado game. stanford lose big one, 56-55. one more thing about the top story of ours, following the
