[ laughter ] let me give you a little bit of rain. here's hi-def doppler radar this morning. we can see we do have some showers just a couple of stray showers left over in the south bay north of sunnyvale and then one passed through san jose. it's heading towards santa clara near alviso. we do also have showers on the peninsula. san mateo, belmont, crossing over the bay into the east bay. showers this morning very light and scattered, not major downpours, just sprinkles on the windshield as you head into work. temperatures mild into the mid- to upper 50s for most folks. not a rainout. area of low pressure off baja is funneling up some of those showers from the south to the
6:50 am
north. so the south bay going to see the best chances of rain today. all of us could see a few stray showers. tonight we start to see the influence from this next area of low pressure. that will increase shower activity overnight tonight for most of us. futurecast paints a pretty good picture. scattered showers until later on this evening. then it fills in. in the morning commute we should see more widespread showers for the south bay. and then really filling in overnight tonight and into the first part of your saturday. tapering off saturday with a chance of a few thunderstorms mostly south of the bay. and then unsettled weather continues on through sunday. drying out by the time we enter your workweek. high temperatures today are mild topping out in the mid- to upper 60s. peaking near 70 for the warmest locations, a big difference from wednesday when we saw 90s. sunrise this morning 6:44. sunset 7:40. and your extended forecast shows unsettled weather with temperatures into the 60s through the weekend. then we dry out monday and

6:52 am
this point there is no field test for. >> reporter: but legal analyst steven clark says such a test could be problematic. the accuracy could be challenged and people with prescribed medications could hauled away to jail. >> the question for many people is, is this test going to cause too many people to be arrested that weren't doing anything illegal? >> reporter: the proposed legislation will only allow officers to use the swab after a driver has first failed the standard field sobriety test. the legislation will get its first hearing at the state capital on april 19. reporting in san jose, i'm mark sayre, kpix 5. >> according to a study by the national highway traffic safety administration, in the past five years, drug driving arrests rose more than 20% nationwide. in the last five years. we'll be right back. stay right there. cutting edge technology. this is a vhs tape. push that tape in and hit play. this is a flip phone. have you seen these before? it's called a compact disc. oh. looks like we're getting a facsimile.
