develop in terms of accumulating rainfall until tomorrow afternoon. we think about 4:00 we will see some areas of moderate rainfall through north by and san francisco and coast. and back towards the higher elevations of the south bay. but best chance to see the rain really firing off is 7:30 at night. notice the areas of yellow and orange embedded with the rainfall we expect, those are isolated thunderstorms the computer models pick up on that could give isolated higher totals. 7:30 to about 11:00 is when we pick up the best chance of rainfall. then we'll keep a lingering chance of potty showers into thursday. totals. overall a .109 to a quarter inch on average through throughout the bay. santa rosa could get close to the half inch. and right near the coastline that's where i think the computer models underdo it a we could see more than the .19
of an inch in half moon. it could be closer to .5 inch. we'll martin it. certainly enough to get the road ways wet. thursday night a little bit colder. but not superchilly winter storm. 61 in antioch. 62 in napa. 59 in oakland and 65 expect the in san jose. let's get to you the extended forecast. a lot of moving parts the next few days. we'll have a second chance of rainfall by thursday night at 10:00 p.m. that brings lingering showers into friday morning. dry on saturday. looks mainly dry on sunday. watch out for another chance of rain developing next tuesday night. so this is more like it here for our typical january kind of a storm pattern moving our way. wednesday night, also thursday night, that's the next two best chances of rainfall coming our way. >> okay nothing major but enough to get us all a little wet. >> you got it. >> thanks ifrmgt they look fake. but these cutoffic signs were
