the environment and potentially the future of firefighting. >> the emissions on diesel and carcinogens is not good for the environment or health and safety of our personnel and it's not good for the public to breathe. >> reporter: and the all electric fire engine will be at fire station 6 tomorrow between 1:00 and 5:00 for the public to check out. maria medina, kpix5. >> the chief says the electric vehicle, fire truck is, about $1.2 million and is comparable in price to other ladder trucks. the company behind it will present its contract to the fire board tomorrow. darren peck standing by with alook at the forecast. what are we in for tomorrow? >> kind of a unique situation just like today where we could get a light mist for 24 hours and end up with about a 1/10- inch of rain in most places, more in some spots, but on average into the heart of the bay. that's what hi-def doppler looks like now and there's very
little on it. let's show you what's going on on the big expect to get an idea how you can have a persistent mist event because we've got one more day where we'll be doing it again. good rain coming in to our north, but watch the long band of clouds stretching down towards the subtropics. look at this a slightly different way. that's the water vapor in the atmosphere. the brighter the color, the more there is and look what keeps getting pushed our way. it's not like we've got a very impressive storm coming in, but we have a constant, steady supply of higher amounts of water vapor to work with and in that case it doesn't take much to wring out a few sprinkles. that's what's been happening. if we watch this on futurecast, i'm going to play this forward taking us from now into thursday and friday and look what happens as we get into friday. there is a long stream of rain coming our way and this time there actually will be just enough energy coming down from the pacific northwest to meet up with it and turn it into rain, which is why the next
rain event meaning more than just mist and sprinkles, but we'll actually get some rain, maybe 0.1 or 0.2-inch out of this quarter inch will come in the second half of friday into the first half of saturday. look at the timestamp. that says 6 p.m. and you can see the rain comes in from there overnight into saturday morning. that's about it. here's another way to look at this. this is how the rainfall accumulates between now and saturday. by tomorrow morning we've picked up about a 0.1-inch of rain with the mist and light showers we'll likely have overnight. then we get a little break throughout the day thursday, doesn't turn off completely tomorrow, but we don't add a lot to it. watch what happens going into friday, second half of the day. you see the gauge goes up a little more. now we're closer to 0.4-inch of rain in some places over the next three days. as far as temperatures, have you noticed it's kind of warm? these overnight lows are relatively warm. are so the daytime highs, 5 to 7 degrees above average for this time of year in places.
so we'll get a break from the rain late saturday, all day sunday and monday. next storm gets here tuesday. that one is a little cooler. we'll have to watch that one, could be more impressive. mary will have a lot more on this. she starts at 4:30 and goes till 7 a.m. she'll have an update at noon and we'll have the drive and any wet roads covered. the sharks shake up the coaching staff after a dismal road trip. and the warriors were down 18 at hatch, but it's the you know when you're at ross and you find their favorite hero... ...at a price that makes you the hero? yes! that's yes for less. yes! with hot holiday toys for all ages, ross is your toy destination. it feels even better when you find it for less. at ross. yes for less.
