6 degrees cooler in san jose. it's chilly out there. 40s and 50s the name of the game at this hour. 53 in oakland, 54 in san jose. about 50 in san francisco. much cooler in the south bay. napa checking in with 44 degrees. here's the call for accuweather forecast. we'll see the numbers continue to fall into the upper 30s to mid 40s and as those numbers fall we'll see another round of isolated showers move through the region. so, here's the bigger picture. live doppler 7 along with satellite, you can see the cold front very nicely, that line of showers. that started in the north and sank south earlier this evening. behind it we see this kind of area of low pressure spinning counter clockwise. that's going to move in behind it tomorrow and that could bring us the chance of a thunder shower. so, on the stormmpact scale tonight into monday, a level 1 light system moving through with scattered showers. monday there is that chance of a thunderstorm popping up and snow levels will be low. this is a pretty cold storm system. down to about 3,000 feet.
but with that low pressure moving through the next 24 hours, it's going to churn up our atmosphere. it will become unstable tomorrow. what that could do is pop up a thunder shower. storm prediction center has placed much of the region under an isolated chance of a thunder shower popng up tomorrow. if one does, our biggest threat would be some small hail, gusty winds, and a chance of an isolated lightning strike. future weathe early tomorrow morning, 5:00 in the morning, showers will be in the picture. so, a slower morning commute on the way tomorrow. even by 8:30, 9:00 we still have the rain in the forecast. even in mount hamilton we could see some flurries flying as the snow levels drop pretty low. by 11:30 midday, we're seeing the showers still isolated downpours. not until the afternoon that the system will kick out to the east and move out of here. so, highs on your monday, a chilly storm system. look at this. highs tomorrow only limited to the 50s. this is well below average for this time of year. 53 for san francisco, 54 for oakland. only 57 with the showers moving
through in san jose. so, the accuweather seven-day forecast shows you tomorrow a level 1 system with a thunderstorm possible. we're dryer, we're brighter, warmer into tuesday. by wednesdy we'll feature increasing clouds, decreasing temperatures. there is a chance of a sprinkle thursday morning, but otherwise friday into the upcoming weekend, much warmer and much brighter. >> announcer: now abc7 sports with mike shumann. >> warriors looking to hold serve tomorrow night at oracle and game two against the spurs. now, the beauty of the playoffs are adjustments in the 7-game series. dubs have 51 points from k.d. and clay last night. mcghee's enter jet he can play on both ends of the court. dubs kicked off the spurs with 21-point win. steve kerr says you can't take anyone for granted. >> i've seen this millions of times, as a player, broadcaster, coach. you go out there game one and you hammer a team and you feel good about yourself. it's almost automatic. they're simmering, they're
