north bay will see raindrops and then we'll look at more widespread showers but very, very light. in fact, scattered showers in our forecast tonight all the way through saturday night. that's how long we are going to see that chance of rain which means keep that umbrella close by. here's our vaca camera. normally showing that sunrise at this hour but not right now. definitely covering the sun with all the cloud coverage. and here's another view of the cloudy day. 45 degrees in livermore. san francisco 53. san jose 51. normally we are in the 30s and 40s for this hour. that's not the case today. temperatures in the 40s and 50s. so again, about 10 degrees warmer than what we had yesterday. warmer than normal and our afternoon highs will also be warmer than normal. satellite-radar showing plenty of cloud coverage also some green popping up here just off the coast. that's not necessarily raindrops. just a sign the of the moisture that's in the cloud coverage. and all of that will eventually bring us a bit of light rain activity. i'll time it all out for you coming up.
