in the north bay over 24 inches of rain during that time. danville had over 19 1/2 inches of rainfall and san francisco measuring over 16 inches of rain. redwood city over 14 inches and the south bay had anywhere from 4 to 15 inches of rain, all of that was about three to five times our average january rainfall. and now we are getting a chance to not have to use those windshield wipers unless the car in front of you kicks up water and then you have to turn them on. looking at sunshine today. temperatures remaining cool. in the 40s this morning so it will be a chilly start. as we go into today we'll reach up to 55 degrees in gilroy and 55 in cupertino. east bay temperatures reaching 55 in haywood as well as walnut creek and then for san mateo
we're reaching 55. temperatures are much cooler and 56 degrees today and 55 in napa. very cool today but will get even colder tonight. take a look at these temperatures and where we'll start tomorrow morning. 37 in scotts valley. 41 in oakland. napa down to 36 degrees. so be prepared for more chilly mornings like that. we've been talking about one more round of rain. 2:00 to 3:00 will be spreading through and heavier as we go out later in the afternoon and then into wednesday evening we're starting to see that moving through san francisco and through the peninsula and parts of the east bay. most of us getting a tent to a quarter inch of rain but maybe as high as half an inch.
another 5 to 10 inches of snow. beyond that we do see the weather pattern changing. no more rain so a lot of sunshine. those mornings will be cold and even freezing. those mornings starting out in the lower 40s. mike, you're seeing lots of change in the traffic world. clarifying what's going on out there, looking at the bay bridge. we can see a clear drive, a little moisture on the asphalt. there may be spots the water is kicking up. conditions are much better than yesterday.

two ways. first, car insurance. the insurance information institute says pothole damage is usually covered provided you have collision coverage. your deductible will apply. and that's usually $500 to $1,000. but you might be able to get that back. if you have minor damage, say $100 or $200 worth, your insurance might not kick in. progressive says in many instances it doesn't make sense to file a claim. one thing that might make sense is seeking reimbursement from the agency that maintains the road. all these drivers hit the same pothole on 101. caltrans maintains 101 so they could theoretically all file a claim with caltrans to get paid in full or reimbursed their deductible. download form ld-0274 from the caltrans website. it's only two pages long and basic fields to fill out what happened where and when. it asks you how much the pothole damage cost you. this is important. caltrans wants either two written estimates or one paid
receipt. when done with the form, sign it and mail it. for the bay area that's district four. don't wait. your deadline to file a claim is six months after the incident. 4:52 right now. one bay area teen stepping up to help others cope with mental struggles. >> it's important you meet someone that's like you so you can help each other through hard times. >> the positive changes she hopes to bring to kids across the country whose families have been affected by cancer. and happening now, mountain view is working to help try to keep those people in their homes. everyone in the bay area who is trying to make it in the bay. a month long discussion aimed at keeping people in their homes. mountain view is one of several bay area cities building new developments increasing the need of more housing.
4:56. an east bay girl scout who lost her parent to cancer is going above and beyond to help families in similar predicaments. she lost her mother in 2022 after a five-year battle with colon cancer. not only was it emotionally devastating but she spent about $2,000 of her own money and created a club for young people whose parents have long-term
cancer. boucher says that group is often ignored. >> there's a lot of support during the first year of diagnosis. the support disappears for those kids, and it's hard for them. my group addresses the need that support needs to go on after multiple years. >> the club provides kids with activities, resources and time to meet with a therapist. she says it's a good place to meet others in the same situation. happening tonight nbc will be saying farewell to "new amsterdam." the series will conclude after five years on the network with two-hour season finale. creators there say it's the perfect ending, but they say some of the actors may be hard to absorb. >> i don't know what's wrong with me. i feel like i'm going back to work next week.
