live when it happens. a live look outside, the view from treasure island, looking at us, we can always back. our camera people over there. >> i know some clouds moving in and some of the clouds carry real-life raindrops which we need terribly. >> definitely and there is rain falling right now over the north bay, more of us will see more widespread and heavy rain over the next couple of days. off and on pattern that will continue through wednesday. the heart of the storm system is still well offshore and what attracts directly overhead that is where we will hear the best chance for some rumbles of thunder and the rain will be more widespread. dry weather will take over later on this week but for right now here are the showers of the north bay, mostly over sonoma county and marin county but a little bit now creeping into northern napa county, moderate rainfall at the heaviest and it is pushing through quickly enough that we are not going to see any issues with any debris flows in the
7:14 pm
wildfire burn scars, the north bay or in the santa cruz mountains. let's switch over to the future cast to show you how things play out. scattered showers with possible as we head into the rest of this evening. pretty brief, hit or miss, but they are possible so at any point over the next couple of days keep the rain jacket and umbrella handy. the more widespread and heavy rain, one round moves in early tomorrow morning. this could obligate your life if you are somebody who still has to commute as opposed to working from home. this will be the pattern that repeats itself, little dry break and more following. the ways of heavy rain adding up to a quarter to half inch for most of us but if you see one of these cells, track overhead it another one follow it up, some spots will overachieve and pick of too close to total rainfall.
7:15 pm
the atmosphere is actually going to be unstable. that is what we look for is the amount of instability which around the bay area is usually pretty close to zero but the forecast models are indicating at least some instability in the atmosphere late morning to midday on tuesday so that is just high enough to allow the potential for electricity to get separated enough to allow for some either into cloud lightning or cloud to ground lightning and is a possibility exists around midday on wednesday so don't be alarmed if you hear some rumbles of thunder. total rainfall amounts will be the quarter inch to half inch range but again a few spots the overachieve and pick up three quarters of an inch, this is not going to raise the rainfall deficit but every little bit definitely helps and this will fall over a long enough period of time that we don't have to worry about the debrief low problems. temperatures are mostly in the lower half, down to 45 already downtown and in livermore, temperatures tonight only back down to the 40s with increasing clouds overhead, a couple chillier spots dropping down into the upper 30s and another
7:16 pm
cool day tuesday with high temperatures across the board in the 50s, low 50s along the coast, mid 50s near the bay with mid to upper 50s farther inland, similar temperatures on wednesday if not a couple of degrees cooler, then as we try things out thursday and friday we start to warm up and the weekend is looking pretty good. set your clocks ahead one hour before you go to bed saturday night, we see a chance of showers heading our way to start off next week. we keep an eye on that in the long-range. here is look at your top headlines. new guidelines from the cdc say groups of fully vaccinated individuals can't safely gather in small groups, indoors, without masks. they can also visit with unvaccinated people if they are at lower risk of developing severe covid symptoms. the cdc is still urging everyone to wear masks in public and discourage travel. >> i think they are holding off on that because they are worried that too much of uncontrolled sanctioning of
7:17 pm
travel word sort of spread a lot of covid all over the u.s. >> it is our responsibility to make sure, in the context of 60,000 new cases a day, that we protect those who remain unvaccinated and remain vulnerable. tomorrow the house is expected to pass the senate version of president biden's almost two trillion-dollar covid relief package. it includes $1400 stimulus checks which eligible americans should get later on this month and a child tax credit of up to $3600 per child. not a single republican in either chamber has supported it. >> we will be having a further discussion about this bill as we move forward to its passage in the next 24 to 48 hours. >> these people in the congress today, the house and the senate on the democrats ride, our out- of-control liberals. protests are expected
