woe we took it to heart. >> it's unclear if those improvements would cause a fare increase. changes on the way at san jose international and the hard hats required. we got a sneak peek at the airport's new gate on terminal b. six gates will open next month to southwest passengers. they'll boast more space and what they're calling sustainable bathrooms. the gates are only temporary, though. permanent additions to the te terminal still several years uh-uh way. let's bring in meteorologist jeff rineiri. >> we're going to get you updated on those totals and what we see happening to get you through the next couple of days. there are a lot of graduation celebrations and just regular old stuff where you're used to sunshine this time of year. and you can see we are not
getting it, at least widespread sunshine. we have this storm system we're track over the west, and this is what brought us some isolated thunderstorms over mount hamilton today. a bit over livermore. eventually this will bring us a chance of rain sunday. let's bring you into tomorrow morn's forecast. i don't see any issues as we start off. you'll get a mix of sun and clouds. also some clouds near the coastline. usually what we see this time of year. we get that marine layer coming on back into san francisco. we'll have that tomorrow morning and 54 degrees, the east bay at 52. start off with a bit of that patchy fog. then as you move throughout the day sunshine will start to return. there's that fog right near the coastline, and then by the afternoon you'll see that sunshine starting to out here across the bay area. the only thing we'll have to watch out for is maybe a spotty shower firing up over mt.
hamilton. you'll see in my forecast that isolated chance of some thunderstorms for the higher elevations of the south bay. and eighty-seven got you at 75 here in downtown san jose. we're cooling it off a couple of degrees over to the south bay. instead of low 80s you're down to 76 in concord, 70 over to hayward. the peninsula anywhere from 59 here at half moon bay with that ocean breeze to 72 in redwood city. to san francisco, 60 and right across wine country looks beautiful out here to napa. 74 degrees, 70 in sonoma and 71 in santa rosa. so tomorrow really kind of nice last day of the week. as we hit saturday i'm still seeing dry weather in the forecast, but then by sunday here comes that storm system we pointed out. it looks like the track is going to move just to the south of the bay area, and that's important because the circulation around that would help to bring us some rainfall, maybe even some
isolated thunderstorms. so totals on sunday right now, trace amounts about 0.15. going to be that hit and miss areas of rainfall. and then as we head through next week slight chances of spotty showers. inland valleys you are down to the 60s this weekend, and then eventually we're back up into the 70s by next week. and i checked inextremely long-range outlook, we might even have a little rainfall in the early part of june. so still can't call it dry for the next 14 days. >> thank you, jeff. all right, up next why all that time you spend on your cellphone may actually be hurting your children. and we have jimmy. >> hey, guys. harrison ford is my guest tonight. plus richard madden, music and a special sweet week. thank you our all military audience. stay tuned, everybody. happening now, "the washington post" is reporting
