moment and talk about the one that's still with us for the next 2 days because there are some interesting, some unique, some insightful things about the last 2 days of rainfall. in fact i'm bringing it back to sunday morning and will play you through the last 33 hours of radar. watch what happens down here, down to the bay area. right into monterey. that started on sunday morning. monday morning. now it's taking us into today. in fact we're watching 33 hours of it. it was like a fire hose pointed right at monterey. that's the atmospheric river. the narrow ribbons of high concentrations of water vapor. that's why we make such a big deal about these storms. if it shifts 30 or 40 miles north, it would be a totally different story. monterey is at 171 percent of average rainfall for this point in the year. san francisco, oakland, san jose, all around 40 percent even after all the rain we just got, and we got like half
an inch for most locations. santa rosa got about an inch and a half, they're about 90 percent of average. so it's not just that one ribbon of strong rain that the storm is composed of. the center sits out here, and we're not done with that. you can see the counterclockwise spin that drifts off the coast. that bulls eye. and that's going to be the reason why we still have a chance for rain here. it's going to still be around. scattered showers later tonight, but more likely wednesday morning, and that's why we're not entirely done with this one yet, but almost done with it. all right, rainfall totals not going to be that big. we've seen like 95 percent of what this thing has to throw at us. so let's look at the next one. we'll go farther out into the pacific. see that comma shape right there? that's the next storm way out on the other side of the pacific. the futurecast already sees it. let's bring it forward, and we'll see a beautifully developed storm by the time we get to friday. and look at the pattern there. see that long ribbon of moisture reaching back into the tropics? there's the map that shows the
higher concentrations of water vapor. that storm will also have a tap into an atmospheric river. that's why it's good to recognize these things because they have significant impact when they hit land. hopefully by sunday we get a break. the giants said good bye to their best player in 2019, and this is the dance the 49ers
49ers are 10 and 2. the they out scored opponents by 166 points and they're only 2 losses by a combined 6 points, but today if the season ended they'd be a wild card team because of what went down at century link field in seattle. vikings and seahawks tied at 7. let's play follow the bouncing ball. it falls into the hands of anthony harris. minnesota took a 14-6 lead. but who's more wide open? the democratic presidential field or that man?
david moore! touchdown seattle! and they win 37-30. the hawks are dancing to the tune of a 10 and 2 record with the win. seattle takes over first place in the west. a hawks victory dropped the 49ers from the top seed in the nfc down to the wild card spot. 49ers at new orleans on sunday. devon looney, 2nd quarter, 5, trey young for the 3. the 21-year-old kid led atlanta with 24 points. now a 20 point game in the 4th quarter. former dub damien jones threw it down, and s destroy the warriors. the giants declined to make an offer to outfielder kevin pilar making him a free agent. he led the team, 21 home runs, 87 rbis. we'll be back after this.
