we do have continuing coverage of the rain storm hitting the bay area this morning. as we've been talking about all day, this is a series of waves. i felt like that radar was tracking me. wherever i went, it was raining the hardest. we had the heaviest rain during the morning show and now there is another wave of rain moving in. >> and it is pouring in oakland. parts of the east bay with that next batch of rain and the roads are really getting stacked up. that's what you have to deal with. >> as this system moves through right in time for the holiday weekend. as you head out this morning, and early afternoon, make sure you allow some extra time to get there. looking now at san jose, it is
11:15 am

11:16 am
inch of rain per hour. then as we go toward richmond, there is some steady rain at this point. starting to lessen the amount of rain from oakland. then you see it picking up around union city. so this is what we'll expect throughout the rest of the day. and the potential heavy down pours as we go into the evening commute. and there's still that small chance that we have some thunder and lightning. not expecting widespread but just something that we'll be keeping an eye on as we go into this evening. the center of low pressure rolls on through. as far as what is happening elsewhere on this busy travel day, a snowstorm moving from minneapolis to chicago and then just south of there. there is mainly some rain but definitely some milder temperatures. and traveling here locally, expect it to be wet and windy along i-5. heavy snow and you need tire
