evan turner in for paul diano this evening. we have another one coming. >> not only do we have another one coming we have another three coming. they are all lined up one after the other. basically every other day of rain and showers. let's take a live look outside right now to the golden gate bridge where it's already pretty cloudy out there. our current temperatures right now san francisco 50 degrees. dropping into the high 40s in concord and santa rosa and livermore. it's going to continue to drop overnight. the overnight lows are mostly going to be in the low to mid- 40s depending on where you are. 44 in the north bay and santa rosa. our coolest temperature in fairfield 42. 43 in san jose and then 48 along the coast of pacifica a little warmer there. our satellite and radar, shows
exactly what is headed our way. this low pressure system is bringing an entire line of storms that are making their way on to the coast and they're going to be hitting us over the next seven days. so number one hit tomorrow. so let's look at how much rain we can expect with storm number one. not anything like we've seen in the last couple of weeks. so no major flooding in the russian river or napa river. however we may see major flooding along streets and highways and potentially some mud slides in the hills because they're already so saturated. one other thing we need to worry about tomorrow is a high wind alert. in fact, we're going to see winds from the south 30 to 45 miles per hour. gusts up to 60--miles-an-hour. power lines, trees, those are the kind of thins we need to keep an eye on tomorrow. so tomorrow, a few sprinkles to the north bay. there'll be a few showers wednesday morning. then wind and rain that is
going to pick up into wednesday afternoon. making for a wet commute. our high temperatures tomorrow mostly in the mid-50s. pretty much across the bay area 52 in santa rosa. 54 in redwood city. freemont a little warmer, 55 degrees and wet basically. so taking a look at our seven day forecast. tomorrow that first round of storms is going to move in. followed by a third day which is going to have some showers here and there. then round number two is going the hit us on friday. and then we'll have a brief break on saturday, it might dry out a little bit so if you have plans outside. saturday is the only day that you might be able to do it. then round number three is going to roll in on sunday with wind and rain again. and then monday, things will start to dry out. we'll have some lingering showers. but for the most part they're going to start to move out of the bay area and then tuesday, things are going the start to dry up. our temperatures will rebound. back up close to the 60s in some places, so it's certainly
going to be warm and dry at the middle of next week. in the meantime, we have several rounds of showers we have to get through. but, the take away here is it's not the extreme wet weather we've seen over the last couple of weeks but it is however going to be wet. - [voiceover] you are san francisco. we've been with you from the beginning. we've seen each other through good times and bad. sickness and health. we're with you san francisco, and you bring out the best in us. care.
