11:19 pm

44 in oakland, 43 in san jose. 38, that overnight low in vallejo. as we turn the calendar page to march, we do get some pretty decent rainfall totals this time of year. over the month we average anywhere from 2 to 5 inches of rain. so there is still hope we can make a little dent in our rainfall deficit this time of year. it does not look like it's going to be a miracle march and make a lot of rainfall up in a short time unfortunately. tomorrow it's dry and sunny, 64 in the city, 68 the high in oakland. san jose the same. equally as warm as it was overed weekend. 66 in napa, 69 in concord 70 the high in fairfield. future weather into friday, this is friday night. the storm is approaching the coast line of california, so we'll include a chance of a shower at night on friday. looks like the best chance for that rain really comes on saturday and saturday morning. this is 11:00 a.m. on saturday as the storm moves on shore. and we will likely also get some
11:21 pm
snow in the sierra, that will help our snow pack out. total rainfall not a block buster storm by any means, but i do think we could expect a quarter to half an inch of rain with this next storm by the end of the week into the upcoming weekend. here's the accuweather seven-day forecast. it is a march beauty around here tomorrow. mostly sunny and pretty mild. through much of the week ahead, then everything changes on friday into saturday. we bring back that rain chance. we drop our temperatures in by saturday. we're only in the mid 50s to low 60s. that's where we should be, dion, this time of year. >> all right, we've just been spoiled. drew, thanks. still ahead on abc7 news at 11:00, a tribute for tiger. his reaction after fellow golfers honored him with his signature sunday color. >> i want us to reframe the way we look at violence. >> physical manifestation of the outcry. >> real conversations with you about equality. >> people are stepping up. >> disparity. >> we're trying to create change. >> and building a better bay
