11:19 pm
outside right now, showers not leaving the bay area. you can see a few here east of san jose. a few more around palo alto. here you go. still isolated showers and we'll probably see that into your morning commute. in fact, maybe even into the early afternoon. as we pass lunchtime, around the santa cruz mountains, the hilltops here of napa county. still a chance of seeing a few showers as we start the day tomorrow and maybe through midday. cloudy skies the first half of the day. 3:00, starting to see partly cloudy conditions and by 6:00, changing over to partly cloudy skies and showers starting to shutdown but this is not much of a break as you're seeing there on the 7-day forecast. especially come tuesday and wednesday. so morning temperatures will be in the 40s. highs tomorrow with mostly cloudy skies staying in the upper 50s and some more mild low 60s around san jose. then our attention turns to what happens tuesday into wednesday. this time looks like a lot of the moisture is going to stay just to the south of the bay
11:20 pm
area so the rainfall projections here have been pretty consistent, taking most of the heavy rain off to the south and for the bay area, top rain totals up here in sonoma county, probably 2 to 3 inches. it was this time last weekend when we're looking at some of the projections that were about 9 to 10 inches of rain and that's exactly what happened. now we're looking at 2 to 3 based on expectations right now. so northbay hilltop, santa cruz mountains, as that falls pretty quickly on wednesday morning, that could be briefly enough to get some creeks and streams running high. now for the russian river last week, that crest just below 46 feet. based on the rainfall estimates you just saw, the crest later this week would be 25.9 feet. so 6 feet below flood stage but again it's the smaller streams that could see some rises early wednesday morning as the system comes on through and it does move through pretty quickly by wednesday afternoon. we change over to scattered showers and watch out for the wind speeds. wednesday morning could get
11:21 pm
gusts up to about 45 miles per hour. so we'll be watching that storm. the 2 to 4 inch range for the north bay and santa cruz mountains and thursday and friday just more off and on showers and then more rain saturday night into sunday. >> then more rain. >> rob, thanks. >> the sun is coming soon. rob, thank you. >> coming up, wowing the crowd on world of dance. local competitors taking the national stage. we'll show you their moves, how they did and we're going to hear from them. >> and more now than ever we're talking about dollar stores. why so many are popping up but is everyone happy about it? that story is next. tonight.
