11:21 am
then we went to the other end of the spectrum very quickly where we had this record dry spell from january to now. our rain averages have gone down to 62% of normal in some spots. and as we mentioned, the sierra snow is only providing about half of what we normally see. we have some rain coming our way. it is all clear and we have a little more time enjoy the sunshine. our temperatures today reach into the mid 60s with oakland headed for4 degrees. 67 inato and 70 in los tos. as the rain comes in morrow, our temperatures only reach into the 50s. and we'll struggle to make it there. it will be a very chilly day. gusty winds and temperatures reaching 56 in san mateo and 59 in fairfield. maybe a few breaks here and there but we're lookinga lot more sunsh in sun forecast. our tratures rebound into the low to mid 60s for the end of the weekend and first day of spring. concord will head to about 65
11:22 am
degrees. this is the storm system coming our way. you can see how long and pretty wide it is ast is apphing e bay area all the clouds that w start to see later this ing will hold off with the rain until early tomorrow morning. we could see the light showers as early as 5:00 to 6:00 in some spots. most of us getting at least the light rain by 10:00 tomorrow morning. it gets a little heavier from noon to 1:00. there would be some breaks. it does continue into the evening and then it clears out. for the most part, we're looking at a tenth to a quarter inch of rain. there may be some spots with a little bit more. about one to five inches of snow in the sierras. after that, our temperatures get a big bounce back, going into the mid 80s next week for a spot like brentwood. but then back down next weekend. hopefully we'll get more rain. we do have this one storm system
11:23 am
coming in. our temperatures dip into the upper 50s and then we'll see the highs reach into the mid 60s for sunday. mid 70s for monday and then low 80s for tuesday and wednesday, and once again, we're looking ahead. there may be another chance of rain next tuesday. that's a long time in between with some very warm temperatures next week. >> all right. well, good sleeping weather on saturday. if even rain doesn't help you fall asleep, we may have a solution for you. there is a viral trend that some say can help you sound asleep in two minutes, sleeping like a tired soldier. and happening now, the city of vallejo is warning residents about a new scam. city officials say it has gotten reports of fraudsters swooping the water bill number and then calling people to complain about outstanding water bills. the city says it will never call customers and for money over the phone. you can pay your water bill in
