microclimate forecast and what we can expect for thursday. >> the rainfall is beginning to pick up, peggy. you can see we're starting to see it fill in as the storm system is picking up moisture. in terms of where rainfall is falling right now, it's isolated to the north bay. you can see on the current scan and now showers approaching santa rosa as well. things will be able to pick up over the next three to four hours. the other thing we'll be watching, not only the chance of rain but those cooler temperatures down to 46 in the north bay, san francisco 52, a chilly 48 for the east bay and for the south bay we start off at 50. as we mentioned, the big question always is and we have rainfall coming in, will it hit the hardest portion of the commute? what you'll see with this storm system as it moves in is a lot of us will be sleeping.ly you'l with wet roads and a lot of you will be getting your lawns wet.
also for contra costa and almeida county and moves towards fremont. we may have lingering showers by 6:30 in the morning. really when the majority of that commute gets going, we will be looking at drying conditions and increased sunshine. it's a quick blast overnight. i really wish these totals would be a lot higher. i know we did get that storm system that past weekend but we need to get all we can with the current drought in place. we'll be close to a quarter inch up into santa rosa but you can see how the numbers fall off once you go south of san francisco as that storm system is expected to lose some of its strength. .05 in livermore and .03 in san jose. for tomorrow you'll find the chance of rainfall in the morning and sun building in the afternoon. if you're going to the coast line tomorrow, be prepared for
that chilly weather to stay with us. 57 for your high in san francisco. towards the financial district, a little bit warmer. for the peninsula, palo alto 63. up toward the south bay, a great day in san jose with 64 degrees. for the north bay, east bay and tri-valley, you have it easy tomorrow. whatever you dress for here in let's say napa, if you're heading to oakland, you've got pretty much the same weather and right here across the tri-valley, plenty of low to mid 60s. but get ready for major changes by this weekend, friday, saturday and sunday a drier, warmer wind moves in combining with hotter air. it will give us a lot 70s on friday. by saturday the south bay goes to 80 and on sunday 85 degrees. light jacket weather tomorrow and you got shorts weather by this weekend. we've kind of had it all lately but it's been nice. >> it has been nice. good variety.
