there, and the storm system will eventually lose its grip, but it is really squeezing out quite a bit of rain in its last gasp. let's take a closer look, heavy downpours around most of san francisco at the moment, and this will be staying in place for the next hour or two. we also have heavy downpours over the bay and in san mateo. we do have the lightning tracker turned on, not seeing any lightning flashes at the moment, there was some inter- cloud writing within the clouds themselves, but if you hear a b because it is 11:20 at night. hme heavy downpours on the east side of the bay as well. and from san leandro northeastward towards around walnut creek, some heavy rain, all of this is just pivoting
around the center of the storm system which is just off the coast, taking its time making its way farther down the coast. as it does so, the rain will taper off. by 3 am, still some rain in place, but it will be lighter as the storm system moves farther away. by tomorrow morning i think everything will have tapered off. then some patchy, dense fog will burn off and we will see a mix of clouds and sunshine for the rest of the day. another rain chance late sunday into early monday, this will not be as substantial, around a 10th of an inch to a quarter of an inch of rainfall. we will keep you updated on the specific timing. right now as we look outside, it just looks wet. temperatures in the low to mid 40s, and it will be kind of cold by tomorrow morning, mid to upper 30s inland with low 40s around the bay and along the coast. when you start off that chilly it is only so much recovery that can happen.
highs in the upper 50s and a few low 60s inland with mid to upper 50s along the bay and low 50s along the coast. try to start the weekend with a chance of showers late sunday into early monday. we will keep you updated on that. are sports anchors the toughest on the set? we've got the video to prove that tonight. y area homeowners

rose up it to reject lucas and that put the entire game on it 24-7 run. and bradley was right in the mix. he had a game-high 19 points. the warriors began their second half tomorrow at the clippers. to start, 19-year-old rookie james wiseman failed to take a mandated covid test and was not able to practice tonight in l.a. his status for the game, he is now in question. >> it is disappointing because he could have used the practice tonight and we needed him out there. so it is disappointing that he made that mistake. >> how about this, the texas rangers say they will be at 100% capacity on opening day.
