afternoon, after high temperatures reach up to the mid-60s today. we're already seeing that rain across much of northern sonoma and marin counties, and then farther to the north. so it's just starting to edge its way into santa rosa, but it's been in cloverdale and ukiah for several hours now. so it's been a steady rain, and this is once again the first in a series of two storm systems that will be moving in. the next one will be here on wednesday and maybe a little bit stronger. this storm system moving in will continue to fizzle out, weaken as it moves into the peninsula, into the east bay. by 6:00 today, we're seeing the leading edge of that rain starting to make its way into the south bay, but we can see the rain kind of falling apart, so the showers will be very hit or miss by this evening, when it moves in. so we're looking at the possibility of getting for most areas along the golden gate bridge off towards the east and the south getting about a quarter inch of rain or less, maybe a little bit higher for the north bay, but the next
storm system moving in will bring us much more rain, and also some gusty winds. so i'll be watching that. a live look out there in the sierra, squaw creek, it's a beautiful start to the day, nice stretch of some dry weather, but we could see another two feet of snow going throughout the week, while we get some rain and wind. our temperatures stay in the 60s, and look at how it clears out for the weekend. it's going to be a nice one, you should go ahead and make some plans to get outside. mike, you're tracking one new crash. >> we have those dry roads as well, kari, before the rain comes in. enjoy it, folks. enjoy the pretty predictable drive for the patterns. the one new crash westbound 80, your commute direction, right around pinole valley road, no slowing shows up and i'll let you know if there's major impact to the lanes. sounds like everything is off to the shoulder. nearby there's more traffic headed across richmond to san rafael bridge. the build is happening at this toll plaza and we already know it's over at the bay bridge toll plaza but a standard backup and actually moving pretty well for fast track, slowly that is. back to you. >> thanks, mike.

raining, starting out. and then our school day forecast for oakland starts out dry, but then by the time the kids get out of school, we'll feel temperatures in the low 60s and some scattered showers starting to move in. we're already seeing the rain in the north bay. it's been in parts of northern sonoma county for hours, and even some pockets of some really heavy rain, just east of santa rosa, we've seen the rainfall rate at about almost an inch of rain per hour. that means if that same little cell sat over the same area, we could pick up on an inch of rain or close to it, within an hour's time. but the rain is pretty much moving in some of the pockets of the heavier rain not staying in the same spots, but we will still have the north bay, the target of the rain, until about noon, and then the leading edge of that rain starts to make it into san francisco, and the east bay by about 1:00 to 2:00, and starting to make its way into the south bay. mostly after sunset and it looks like that line of rain starts to fall apart, becomes more
scattered, so we're not going to see as much rain in the south bay as we'll see in the north bay. some of our rainfall estimates show as you move south of the golden gate bridge, you're looking at about a quarter inch of rain, and it could be up to a half inch, maybe even three-are the quarters of an inch toward ukiah. the next storm system that will be here on wednesday, it's going to bring us more rain, looking at most of us getting about an inch of rain especially for the east bay for the peninsula and northward. it's going to be windy, with that second storm system arriving on wednesday, and then it tapers off on thursday, and look at that, weekend forecast, after a rainy week much deserved weekend of warm weather and sunshine. san francisco highs reaching into the mid to upper 60s. and mike, you've got a big deal happening in the south bay. >> but not the good kind. not like the weekend you're showing. a crash major crash reported here. most of the bay shows a smooth drive. it is northbound 17 where chp has reported a major crash but
not major injuries. that's an important difference here. we have traffic jammed up solid from hamilton up toward about 280, i think the crash is just shy of 280 judging by the speed sensors. you can use baskham, winchester to get by and what's happening, folks are hearing about the crash, some are instead of going to 17 are choosing northbound 87 as an alternate. this will be building and seeing the slower drive, you may take capitol to 101. more slowing coming off of 85 and headed up toward alum rock and mckee. that may be the ripple effect. just warning you as we track that crash in san jose. the peninsula is an easy drive for palo alto as the sun comes up. slower now westbound 92, and there is a crash reported at the toll plaza, that will complicate things off of 880. the dumbarton bridge looking much better, and we have the bay bridge which is looking standard. laura, back to you. >> thank you very much. 6:50 right now. happening now, china is censoring more than two
