stockton into modesto, we are anticipating the potential of a brief tornado. it is certainly possible. we're not saying that it's going to happen. we're just saying all the dicey ingredients are in place. and look at these beautiful clouds right now and the blue sky. that's a symbol of instability with the passage of that front that sliced through the bay area. that's why we have to keep that chance of a thunderstorm in the forecast with small hail. when you have blue sky and also the clouds in the passing of the system there, we begin to see a warmup and again that atmosphere becomes very unstable. look at the rainfall in the past 24 hours. usually in the month of march, in the bay area, we see a total of 3 inches. we saw that in 24 hours alone. but then in san jose, .4" rain, 8 times more in the santa cruz mountains due to the rain shadow effect limiting the rainfall in the san jose area. dana reports over an inch and a quarter of rain. looking out at the beach now,
wind speeds up to 15, san francisco at 16. san ramon at 17 miles per hour. winds will be pretty consistent out of the south 10 to 20 during the day. beautiful front slicing through the core of the center of the area of low pressure still way back over the ocean. we are still going to have to deal with that by tomorrow morning. so we'll just call it unsettled through the period. tonight's evening commute relatively on the dry side. then look what's queuing up. tonight, overnight, hours of heavy rain passing through make it a wet sloppy morning commute. it will be dry before that guy right there is poised and positioned to slice through on friday with heavier rainfall up to three inches at least. three and a quarter. we are still going to see about .6" in pleasanton before this system is gone. high sierra with a winter weather advisory in place a foot of snow at the crest. that's high. our temperatures speaking of highs, up to 70 degrees. it's balmy, it's muggy outside! sunset is at 7:22.
it's going to be a beauty. seven-day forecast calls for rain tonight, just an occasional hit-and-run and miss scattered showers monday morning. that's a showery event and then we begin to dry out thursday, more heavy rain, gusty wind on friday. i think i was sitting this high. >> i know. >> all right, roberta, thanks so much. still ahead a sight customers weren't expecting to see inside a walmart where this cowboy was spotted.
that guy. figures. try new very berry cheerios. the taste of real fruit in every bite. so berry good. cooking team is back! stephanie and tony tantillo are in the kitchen making pork chops.. our favorite cooking team is back. stephanie and tony tantillo are in the kitchen making pork chops. >> okay. pork chops. stephanie is going to make me something that i love. >> this is pork chops and risotto. it's a very southern kind of sicilian, with a sweet and sour flavor so they do it a lot with peppers but i love it on pork, the sauce has a great flavor. >> let's get going, come on, i'm hungry. >> let's make it.
>> so the first thing we do is we are going to sear off the pork chops. bone in pork chops also important to remember get that one, and then when it gets brown, in oil and butter, pretty much cooked on the surface a little deeper we can start basing it with the sauce. it's made up of vinegar, butter and sweetness so i like using red wine vinegar and because that's very acidic, the amount of butter and honey needs to be equal. that's going to soften it and it's going to sweeten it, then herbs with olive oil, it's one of those sauces you really need to taste as you go because depending on your ingredients it, could be a shock if it's too sour. so threat go overall about 5, 10 minutes. but make sure -- so let this go overall about 5, 10 minutes. but make sure you -- you see
crumble away. the heightened worries with more rain ahead this week. that story and more at 5:00. and an unusual sight in houston. a man riding a horse right through walmart. customers and workers were shocked. there were two horses inside going up and down several of the aisles. the viral video posted sunday has gotten over 2 million views. hm. >> hm. >> i think they were just horsing around.
