6:17 am
we see some heavier rain just off the coast and some light rain falling through parts of the north bay. some of this rain is virga, so the very, very light green is rain falling from the sky but not quite hitting the ground. you could expect light rain along 101 through novato and making its way through san rafael, also picking up light showers through fremont, 880, and we could see some sprinkles moving across the east and the dumbarton bridge right now. clouds are increasing as well. check out this live shot in san jose. it's gray out there. so far no measurable rainfall but that will change. temperatures are cool in the 40s, even some 30s out there like morgan hill is 39 degrees right now. we've got mid-40s in san francisco, mountain view and also in san jose. check out this shot, this is walnut creek, and we're looking at the sunrise that will be coming at 6:29 this morning. tomorrow, 7:29. t now temperatures aren
6:18 am
the ar. little milder at 47. so o our storm impact scale today and tomorrow's storm ranks a 1, it will be light. but we will see some rain during the morning hours, possibly some downpours at times. then it will taper off into showers this afternoon and this evening. that will continue through tomorrow. less than an inch of rain for most everyone. in fact the rainfall varies quite a bit. breezy at times, especially along the coast. here's a forecast animation. so 7:00 this morning you'll still see some of the heavier showers mainly along the north bay coast. even some dry spots as well. then by about 10:00 we'll start to see rain move through along 101, santa rosa north bay, and then hitting the peninsula coast. then by lunchtime, we'll see some more rain starting to sweep through san francisco and parts of the east bay. it quickly turns into scattered showers by the afternoon and
6:19 am
then isolated showers this evening. now, as this area of low pressure slides south, we'll still see some rain overnight through tomorrow, but you notice it quickly moves out by tomorrow evening. monday will finally be a break for all of us. so rainfall potential, again, generally less than an inch. more rain in parts of the north bay where we're seeing rain right now. so closer to an inch in novato, about three-quarters in ukiah and santa rosa. around half an inch to a quarter inch around the k t fremont, just about 0.1 of an inch and parts of the inland interior east bay also less rain there. highs today will be in the low to mid-50s. san francisco 54, oakland 56, san jose 56 degrees. overnight lows will be chilly once again, especially through parts of the north bay and some valleys where it will be in the 30s. we'll see mid-40s around the bay and only 41 in san jose. here's the accuweather seven-day forecast. so rain this morning, showers by
6:20 am
this afternoon. you'll need the wet weather gear throughout the weekend. and tomorrow we start off an hour earlier as you turn your clocks forward for daylight saving time. monday a short break from the rain and then tuesday another system moves through, but it will bring us very light rain and breezy conditions. and then finally some sunshine and milder, warmer weather mid-week into the endy all that often so i'm always nervous when we spring forward and whether or not the phone will catch up. >> oh, my phone is always on time with that stuff. >> i just can't -- i don't know. we'll see. >> i trust technology more than i do myself sometimes. >> thank you, appreciate it. just ahead, good-bye at&t. there's a big change at the home of the giants. we'll be right back.
