fog in the sacramento valley so if you are heading through sacramento, be mindful of that this morning. high temperatures in the 50s and low 60s around the bay today. so certainly on the cool side. but near average for this time of the year. your weather headlines today mainly dry for your friday. steady rain though moves in by saturday morning. and we get a second round of rain late saturday. so really saturday going to be a mostly soggy day although drying out through sunday. how much rain? well, not a lot from that first shot very showery in nature. this is a colder system so not tapping into that moisture. less than a quarter inch for most spots for the first half of the day saturday. but as i advance look at the clock at the top of the screen, to early sunday morning, we do increase those puddles a bit up near three-quarters inch for santa rosa, maybe over three- tenths inch for hayward, san jose, redwood city. so we'll time out the rain coming up. but first we are timing out the black friday shopping commute. roqui, how are the roads? >> i have a feeling that more
people are in line right now than actually on the roads. but let's take a look here at the bay bridge toll plaza. looking good if you are heading into downtown san francisco. carquinez bridge along the eastshore freeway to the maze will take you 19 minutes. and then expect no delays into the city right now. moving over now to the city, now parking meters and seven- day street sweeping areas are in force so don't get a ticket on black friday. enjoy your day without a ticket there and pay attention to those parking instructions. now moving over to the san mateo bridge, from hayward to foster city that's 880 to 101, that will take you a quick 14 minutes. and, of course, in san jose here it's new york islanders versus san jose sharks puck drops at 1 p.m. so expect some delays maybe in that area this afternoon. i'll send it to you. >> all right, roqui. thank you. a south san francisco police officer is in critical condition after getting attacked with a skateboard. it began with a disturbance on grand avenue around 2:20
yesterday afternoon. kpix 5's maria medina is live in south san francisco with details of the investigation. >> reporter: good morning. yeah, the identity of the officer is unknown this morning but what we do know is that the officer underwent surgery for the attack that left him in critical condition. this all started yesterday afternoon as you said at 2:00 on grand avenue when someone waved down the officer to report some sort of disturbance. now, the officer found the suspect who we now know is luis ramos correa. he wasn't cooperating so the officer called for backup but ramos correa took off on a skateboard and at some point during the chase allegedly turned around and hit the officer with his skateboard and knocked him out. another officer was able to arrest ramos correa. now, the mayor released a statement that says, this is so disheartening to hear of the incident in a city such south san francisco. we are a tight-knit community with police force that is our family.

futurecast this morning, still seeing clear skies for the southern portion of the viewing area most folks though already seeing increasing cloud cover this morning. and we will see gray skies throughout the day today. feeling a little damp out there but not going to see the actual rain that's going to stay north of most of us today. it's overnight tonight that the front and the heavy rain comes through. and then by the time you wake up tomorrow morning and start heading out here we are at 9:00 scattered showers and keep in mind this is a colder system. not tapping into that subtropical moisture. so not going to see the impressive rainfall totals that we did out of the last system. but still going to see kind of scattered showers and a wet day for most of the day on saturday so here we are in the morning as i advance on throughout the day notice we continue to see scattered showers. another round of rain kind of a second wave moves through towards the end of the day saturday into early sunday. but i pause it here by sunday morning. might see a couple of lingering showers sunday morning but drying out by late morning and we will see increasing sunshine for the second half of the day on sunday.
so your weather headlines, mainly dry on this black friday with the exception of the folks in the north bay could see some showers later today. steady rain beginning saturday morning for most of us and a second round late saturday mostly overnight into early sunday morning. we should be drying out by sunday so friday or sunday those are the days you want to think about hanging those lights and putting out decorations. saturday a shopping day or day to stay in and spend time with family. sunrise today 7:01. sunset this evening 4:53. out the door this morning, temperatures outside are chilly. 36 in livermore right now. grab a jacket going to the mall. maybe leave it in the car because i'm sure it will be warm inside. 42 at concord. 47 in oakland. 49 in san francisco. 40 this morning in santa rosa. 41 your current temperature in
