hour. assemblyman chu wants your clock to stay permanently at saving time. >> i'm hoping this will be the last time you have to switch your clock in california. >> reporter: last year they approved proposition 7 making it daylight saving time year round but it needs the blessing of the federal government. chu says switching time back and forth is hazardous to your health. deprive ourselves of an extra 40 minutes of sleep because of the change. >> reporter: more crashes on roads because of sleepy drivers. >> daylight saving time also causes more injuries at work, and possibly more suicides. >> reporter: here are some survival tips. >> now, alcohol can interfere with your sleep. so avoid using it four to six
5:16 am
hours before bedtime. the same with caffeine, so only decaffeinated coffee. >> reporter: and you prepare for the changes sunday by sleeping earlier. >> you kind of go to bed 15 minutes earlier probably a month before we started switching time. >> reporter: but that extra hour of light could be a good thing. it could give you more time to exercise. tick tock, tick tock, sleep tight, at least until sunday morning. vic lee, abc 7 news. meteorologist frances dinglasan is tracking the forecast for us. frances, we're not looking forward to that sleep change, right, on this shift? >> i'm happy to stick to one time. i'm all for it, you've got my vote. right now we're tracking the rain, live doppler 7 showing us it's starting to hit the north bay coast, some light rain. this is the first rain that will sweep through. we'll get a heavier wave in the next few hours.
5:17 am
a live shot in the south bay shows some thicker clouds moving in through san jose right now. temperatures are on the cool side. 40s acti, even some 30s out the. san francisco 46, mountain view 44 degrees. i'll take you to another shot, still pretty quiet across the bay bridge with some clouds over the wbay area. we had a few sprinkles in some spots but that will increase today. santa rosa 42, fairfield 43, concord 46 degrees. so on abc 7 storm impact scale today and tomorrow this storm ranks a 1. it's a light, 1 out of 5, but we will see some morning rain, even some heavier rain at times. somedo downpours possible. it will turn into showers this afternoon and that will continue tomorrow and taper off by the end of the weekend. all in all we're expecting less than an inch of rain and the breezy winds will pick up, especially along the coast this afternoon. so here's a forecast animation. 5:00 this morning we'll see some rain moving through the bay and
5:18 am
then we'll see a heavier wave start to make its way towards the coast again by about 8:00 this morning. this will sweep through as well the bay area but it already starts to break up at lunchtime. we'll see heavier rain through parts of the east bay. this evening you'll still need a jacket because we'll still see showers throughout the night. we'll see another wave overnight into tomorrow morning, so again, a little heavier rain moving through in the overnight hours. then notice as this area of low pressure slides south, it takes the rain with it tomorrow night. we'll finally get a nice break on monday. so rainfall potential, again, less than an inch. we could see more than that through parts of sonoma county like novato and even isolated areas possibly more than an inch. around the bay area, anywhere from a tenth of an inch to about half an inch. about a kquarter of an inch in oakland. highs will be definitely on the cool side. in san francisco 54, lots of mid-50s around the bay.
5:19 am
56 in oakland and san jose. cooler in santa rosa at 53 degrees. and overnight another chilly night, especially through parts of the north bay. ukiah and lake port dropping into the 30s. we'll see low to mid-40s around the bay area. san jose 41 degrees, morgan hill 38 degrees. so you'll have to turn your clocks forward an hour tonight into tomorrow morning, but we will get more daylight. the sun sets tonight at 6:11, tomorrow it will be at 7:12. unfortunately, it looks a little wet as well for little league tomorrow. we'll start off with some rain in the morning, but better chances as we move later throughout the day. in fact our rain chances will stick around this weekend. monday we get a break, but check out wednesday, thursday and friday. some sunshine and drying out. temperatures will still be on the cooler side. so rain and then showers this morning. turn your clocks forward an hour
5:20 am
tonight. tomorrow we'll see showers and some sunshine. a brief break on monday before some light rain moves back in on tuesday and then sunny and drier and slightly warmer weather midweek for the end of next week as well. >> so that's something i can look forward to. >> yeah, i know. we're so well above average in terms of rain we could use the break. >> frances, thank you. just ahead, good-bye at&t. there's a big change at the home of the giants.
