up. goes down. it's heavy rain. there's the line. by 8:00 a.m., it approach progresses all the way through. you see what i'm saying? everybody is going to get a pretty good dose of rain. then you get into, after 8, this scattered shower activity, which i think at this point, the models are pretty in good agreement about saturday afternoon not being a complete wash out, because that morning deal, that's going to be wet. you're not going to want to go out in that. but after say 9, 10:00 in the morning, you may be up for has to scattered showers, which will allow you to go to the big game without too much of an issue, allow you to get out and do things saturday afternoon. sunday morning, few more scattered showers, more showers on sunday afternoon into sunday night. so the 5-day forecast, well, that's coming up after this, huh? forecast rain accumulations could easily get to 2 and a half, 3 inches of rain, maybe even more. there's the 5-day forecast. it's a wet weather pattern that's going to take us right into the bay area weekend and beyond. little break in the middle of the week, and more rain at the end of -- at the end of indication week. so we're into it.
