7:18 am
the 40s. today's highs will be slightly cooler, topping outs into the 50s which means if you are heading out for any new year's eve celebrations tonight, you may still want to bundle up. get a quick check of how we are expecting to see our microclimate highs for today. half moon bay 48 degrees, topped out another h at 62 degrees yesterday but today, shouldn't be climbing past 56. as far as rain chances, let's take a quick look at how the radar is looking right now. socal has been seeing some much needed rain and that storm system that is going to be pushing in from the north is still bringing some showers down near that area. also near san diego as well and they are expected to keep that rain through tonight into saturday, carrying over into sunday. so, they're definitely in for about three days of rain. as far as the bay area goes, here it is. we're seeing that spotty showers. now, although this is coming down from the north, it is trending south. so, that means areas like san
7:19 am
francisco, san jose, could be seeing some spotty showers over the next couple of hours and of course areas near sacramento already seeing some rain out near that area but if you're wondering if this is going to continue into the overnight hours, let's take a look at your hour by hour outlook. now, by sunday night, we should be clearing out, which means tonight by midnight, no rain in sight. however, we are tracking a second storm system that is expected to bring a better chance for rain across the bay area as early as monday. for tonight, though, cool temperatures in the highs of -- in the 50s and as we head into the night, it will be in those 40s. here's a quick glance right now at what we're tracking. monday by about 7:00, you start seeing that fog roll in. and you start seeing those showers if you fast forward to tuesday, wednesday, and thursday, there is a good chance that that rain will carry over. let's quickly plan out your day planner for your new year's eve celebrations chls by 10:00 a.m., we are expecting to see some light rain. by 1:00, that rain should be clearing out, leaving behind
7:20 am
some cloud cover and by 4:00, we should be clearing, making way for a cool day across the bay area. by midnight, the night where we welcome 2017, we're expecting 40 degrees and some partly cloudy skies. new year's day for the first day of your 2017, expect a cold morning, chilly temperatures and by 8:00, we could see the possibility of some light rain thanks to the arrival of that second storm system. originally, we are expecting that second storm system to keep our temperatures very cold, overnight lows, but that has actually shifted. now we're expecting milder conditions with a better chance of seeing some rain as early as monday morning through tuesday, wednesday, and thursday as well. so the first week of 2017 as of now is looking like it may be a foggy one across the bay area. now, inland area is also expecting to see a high of about 54 degrees for today. first day of the new year, 53, and we will keep those 50s in the forecast through the end of 2017. i'll send things back to you. >> great, vianey. thank you very much. much more ahead on "today in the
