this morning the tests have shown that there are particulates that could cause discomfort when breathed in, especially with people who have underlying respiratory conditions such as asthma. that's why we are releasing this advisory, just to let people know, with those conditions, to stay indoors and to avoid going outdoors and also even for healthy individuals, they should limit outdoor activity. we are in constant with the beneficia refinery and we're in constant contact with the public health department as well as the bay area air quality management district to make sure everyone is working together to address the current issue. there is no toxic or heavy metals that are harmful, at harmful levels, at this point. so all of this, we're just putting it out as a precaution.
we have also notified the benicia unified school district and county services to make sure that they are aware of the situation. >> so, irma, it sounds like, because you're releasing this advisory, that it's somewhat serious, you are concerned, you want people to know. the advisory says this happened because of an ongoing incident at the refinery. can you explain what that means? >> at this point, right now we know that we have been monitoring the situation for about a week. and -- >> but was there a particular situation at the refinery, a few days ago this week, that caused the emissions? >> there were visible emissions from the refinery. and we have been monitoring it for about a week now. we are just this morning -- >> so -- >> -- the test that was done on the particulates, it showed that there is coke, which is a
byproduct of the prefining process, made up of carbon particles. the particulates itself are not hey harmful level but it may cause discomfort and breathed in and people who have underlying respiratory problems could have discomfort. that's why we're asking everyone to stay indoors until the issue is resolved. >> i understand that people need to be careful, especially if they have respiratory issues. again i'll just ask you, what exactly happened? has the refinery told you if there was some sort of accident? you say there was an incident. i'm sure people are just wondering what happened and when it will be resolved. >> we are working closely with the valero benicia refinery. they are working to resolve it. and we just really want to stress that people should really stay indoors and limit their outdoor activity at this point.

east bay. and whether or not this stalls out, it is supposed to stall out, how long it stalls out is the big question for how much rain you'll get in the north bay monday morning. a live look from our east bay hills camera, a nice vantage point. you can see some of the clouds here, 51 in oakland, 47 in san jose and morgan hill, 49 on the coast. from san francisco, coit tower, partly cloudy conditions. 44 in santa rosa, fog up to the north as well. we've had some over into the east bay. and 49 for you in concord. it is 43 in livermore. we're clear for most of the night, it was much, much colder. in fact it was 10 to 15 degrees colder from the peninsula to the south bay. now we're catching up a little bit, and it should be slightly warmer today. we had a pretty stiff west wind yesterday. 19 at truckee, tahoe valley airport 21 degrees. increasing clouds today. rainy and breezy tomorrow. a 1 on our storm impact scale.
light to moderate rain, 1/4 inch to 3/4 inch. coastal hills could see in excess of an inch of rain. we're trying to narrow down where this is going to fall, the heaviest rain. and the forecast models are not doing a great job. 20 to 30-mile-per-hour winds. the rest of the day is dry. clouds increase. towards your early monday morning commute, the rain begins to slip out of the north bay into the east bay and south bay. but look what happens as we go to about 11:30, noontime. it's still hung up in the north bay. but we're finally seeing it press east. we're talking five or six hours of heavy rain in the north bay. so once again, sonoma county, santa rosa, perhaps even marin county, you'll see way more rain than the rest of the bay area. by the middle of the afternoon, we have it in the east bay and south bay. rainfall amounts, huge disparities from the north bay to the south bay. we've got the rain shadow effect. that front stalls. look at the 3/4 inch, maybe an inch, contrast that to
1/10th and 2/10th's in the south bay and east bay. possibly 20 inches for the west slopes. and for the actual tahoe area we're talking tuesday through thursday, foot and a half, two feet already accumulating there. we're looking at a pretty active week. your break is tuesday. then by wednesday, here comes another round of rain. this could provide thunderstorms into thursday as the actual area of low pressure moves overhead. so a pretty dynamic week ahead. highs in the low to mid-60s today with the increasing clouds. and then over in oakland it should be a bit breezy with about 62 for the game. the accuweather seven-day forecast feels a little bit like winter even though it's spring. download the accuweather app and you'll keep track of those incoming storms. >> lisa, it's the ski season that keeps on giving. >> until the 4th, it looks like. >> very exciting. thank you. abc's new brand "local-ish" is sharing inspiring stories in
