you can tweet things if you are a regular person but you can't do it if you are the owner of tesla. the 7:00 p.m. tweet did not approve this. and maybe a ceo can get away with gee, it is a mistake and won't do it again. musk promised he would not do it again. earlier he said this on "60-minute." >> look at you. >> i want to be clear, i do not respect the scc. >> i do not respect them. >> jerome powell will testify before congress. he's not in trouble or anything, he's there to brief lawmakers on the economy. it could get heated as president trump is putting him under due pressure. when trump started to call for

will be wet, standing water possible as well as those winds blowing around that rain, going into 10:00, still focused on mainly on the north bay and parts of the east bay. you start to see this shifting just a little bit further to the south so the evening commute may see some areas that have not had much rain, getting a little bit more going into the evening and over night hours. by tomorrow, a lot of this rolls off to the south. we'll get a bit of a break. there will be scattered showers moving through. additional rainfall totals of an inch or less. the north bay where we'll see a lot of flooding possible standing water in the road ways and rising creeks and streams. looking at this system and giving us a break on thursday, friday and another system moves in, mainly during the evening and on saturday and tailing off
