7:17 am
>> because in life, what you try to do is you put something on the table that you hope he can't refuse. that hasn't been the case. and until we are able to do that, then that should be the posture that he should take. he's got something that is very valuable, and that is a bid in las vegas. he doesn't have that here. and until we has that, and i think john madden said it, yeah, they want to stay here. the tough part now, raj, is that time is running out. >> reporter: it's not a matter of months. it's a matter of days. oakland will try to fast track lott's proposal in a closed door session on tuesday. meanwhile, that glistening stadium teal in las vegas has already been approved and casino mogul has pledged more than

7:20 am
to push on through until tonight and into sunday's forecast as well so we are expecting widespread showers and where you see that yellow and orange, that's more along the santa cruz mountains so they're definitely getting those gustier winds. let's take a look at your hour by hour forecast. we've seen some showers out in the north bay and of course out near the coastline, san francisco, san jose not seeing a lot of rain just yet. by about 1:30, though, we are expecting a second round of showers and that's actually going to push down all the way down to the south bay, we're talking san jose, palo alto, expecting to see some rain into the afternoon hours, tapering off into the mid afternoon so by about 3:00 to 5:00, we could see a little bit of break in those showers and see a break in between storms before we see another round move in by about 3:00, that's when you're going to get your period of a break, at least for the south bay anyway. out near the north bay, we are expecting to see the majority of that rainfall continue through tonight and into sunday morning, it looks by about 5:30 in the
7:21 am
morning, hopefully most of you are either in home or waking up but if you do have an early morning commute, this could affect that. pretty slick roads out there, so be sure to take extra time before you head out on to the roads. heading into monday, we are seeing another storm that's going to taper off to the north bay and as you head into the early morning hours, into the monday morning commute, we should be seeing a majority of those storms clear out, making way for the majority of a nice workweek ahead but with this storm system, we're also seeing a winter weather advisory for parts of the sierra mountains and what that means is we could be seeing some more snowfall, about 3 to 8 inches above 4,000 feet, so could make for low visibility. to if you are planning to head out or you're already there, stay inside and stay warm. with this system, we're not seeing a high wind advisory but we are seeing some beach hazards and that's going to stay in effect until about 3:00 a.m. we are seeing some pretty decent
7:22 am
swell, about 12 to 14 feet, like i said, our highs for today, we're not going really going to warm up. nice and cold for the majority of the day, which is a good thing for november. now, let's go ahead and take a look at our seven day forecasts as you head into sunday, early morning, stay in the 50s, a nice pattern, a nice shift in those temperatures from those 80s to 70s. now we're dropping down into the 50s which means those overnight lows are also going to be dropping down into those 40s. as we head inland, also expecting that rain to carry on over into sunday. by monday, we could be seeing some early morning showers that are going to be sitting off to the coast that could taper in into the evening hours as well by tuesday, we should be clearing out. wednesday and thursday, those temperatures remain fairly similar also in those upper 50s, lower 60s so today's biggest concern is going to be those breezy to windy conditions, of course rain, so if you do have to be indoors, stay indoors. if you're going to head outdoors, carry an umbrella and don't get caught in the rain. it's going to be a soggy weekend
7:23 am
ahead. i'll send things back to you. >> vianey, thank you very much. much more ahead on "today in the bay." coming up -- >> i never gave up and go what's in it for me. i would get up and it's like, what do i have to pack into this dream of life? what do i have to offer? >> we're thankful for the groups who help the less fortunate. our "bay area proud" series is next.

grab that umbrella and bundle up, because it is cold, and it's going to get soggy out there. already saw some rain and we are expecting rain throughout the day. if you're heading out to christmas in the park in downtown san jose, definitely bring a lot of rain gear, 56 degrees right now in the peninsula, out near the tri-valley, 49. that nice chilly start is going to maintain its temperatures throughout the day. we're expecting to climb into those 50s. out near the east bay and san francisco, also overcast, 49 degrees as this cold front pushes in, we're expecting to keep those cooler temperatures in the area. now, 59 degrees in san francisco, half moon bay 57, topping out at 58 in palo alto, so overall, we're expecting periods of showers on and off throughout the day. here's a live look right now at our radar as we begin to see that cold front, this line of storms move in, it is expected to continue pushing inland all day long so let's go ahead and
7:48 am
track that hour by hour forecast. now, early morning into the overnight hours, as it was sitting off the coast, the santa cruz mountains, all the way up to santa rosa and out near oregon, seeing those heavy downpours and of course those stronger winds. now, as we continue to push through the day, by saturday, mid afternoon, by about 3:00 to 5:00, we are expecting those showers to take a break, and we're going to taper off a bit but by sunday at 6:00 a.m., we're seeing a second storm arrival. so if you have an early morning commute, take some extra time. all the way down to san jose, also expecting to see a lot of rain as we head into sunday morning. fast forward through sunday night and into monday morning, another line of storms moves in into early morning, expecting some pretty decent downpours, san francisco, down to soejs, not really going to see a lot of rain, mainly going to stick off to the north bay, but by monday evening, that storm does make its exit and it's going to clear the way for a nice dryer pattern
7:49 am
into the upcoming workweek. estimated rain totals for tonight, as we head into saturday evening, we're expecting just about a half inch of rain in palo alto, in redwood city, half inch, also minnear s jose, under half an inch, maybe even a foot of actually rain as we head into napa, a little bit over 1/2 inch and as we head into sunday, that's when those rain totals increase and we get another chance of storms into the overnight hours and that's going to bring more rain into the bay area, sticking around until monday. with this storm system, we're also tracking a winter weather adviser which will be in effect until about 10:00 a.m. and that could bring low visibility, anywhere between 3 to 8 inches above 4,000 feet so if you're going to head out there or if you're heading to the beach, may want to hold off because there is a beach hazard that will remain in effect until sunday at about 3:00 and we're seeing some pretty high waves out there, some pretty dangerous surf so
7:50 am
you may want to hold off on that. over the next seven days, we're going to see that pattern stick around through sunday as the storm system continues to roll on through the forecast, those temperatures will remain in the 50s, by monday. that early morning rain should clear out into the afternoon. by tuesday, all that's going to be left behind is going to be those clouds, and by wednesday and thursday, we should be clearing out, making way for a much dryer, sunnier weather forecast. not just in san francisco but also inland. inland, we are expecting to see that rain in the south bay and downtown san jose on and off so it's, remember, it's going to be periods of heavy rainfall, periods of break in sunshine so it's going to be a combination of both so if you are going to be outside, make sure to keep an umbrella handy and of course bundle up because these 50s are not going anywhere. we warm up to the 60s but all in all, it's going to be a nice week of november-like temperatures so it's finally going to start feeling like christmas already around here. i'll send things back to you. >> vianey, thank you very much. much more ahead on "today in the
