rain puts out fires. it worked in the caldor fire. it has been fully contained. the fire had been burning for more than 2 months. it is the one that threatened to tahoe. it burned more than 346 square miles and destroyed hundreds of homes. there is a new threat, and you know what it is. worries now about mudslides and the burn scar. the city of pleasant hill has set up this sandbag station. no takers when our camera was there this morning, but steady rain was still falling. >> they make you take your own shovel to those sandbag locations now because of covid. bring your shovel. hopefully we won't have to worry about that, but we are looking at a significant rain event on sunday and sunday night. it will be a wet commute friday morning, with steady rain in the bay area. this is the main event. that's heading the way for the second half of the weekend. this will be equally powerful, a little closer to us, and it
5:17 pm
will send a lot of moisture into the bay area. let's focus on what is happening right now. shower activity for the north bay. it is still sprinting right now in santa rosa. elsewhere very isolated showers. that'll be the case is we head through this evening. the bulk of shower activity has been pushed north as the warm sector of the storm has taken of her across the bay area. not just warm, but also muggy, aware that we don't use very often to describe the bay area's weather. dew points are in the mid 60s. once you get above 60, that is sticky, and this is going to be some of the fuel for the rain that will move in later on tonight. let's take a look at futurecast. just scattered showers mainly north of the golden gate, but we will see more widespread activity moving into the north bay just after midnight tonight. the bulk of the rain is off the pacific coast, but it will sweep across the bay area, moving into severances go between 2:00 and 4:00 in the morning, and spreading across the rest of the bay area as we head towards sunrise on friday.
5:18 pm
sentencing is only receive 0.01 inches of rain this week. i think you will build on that as the system makes its way through and pushes off to the east. still waiting for the morning commute in most locations across the bay area. plan for an extra long commute and maybe take public transportation if that is an option for you. the bulk of the rain was light off to the east by midmorning. the lingering showers will die down by noon, but there is more rain on the way as we head into the weekend. this is going to amount to around 0.5 inches, maybe 1 inch of rain for the north bay on top of what you've already received. elsewhere, the models are indicating around 0.25 inches. could overachieve if the rain lasts little bit longer. this is more significant than the last round of rain that came through. looking further down the line, we are still tracking the area of heavier rain for sunday and sunday night. tomorrow morning's rain is associated with a weak atmospheric river aimed towards the bay area, but it will be a much more substantial
5:19 pm
atmospheric river aimed towards us on sunday and sunday night. a lot more moisture in the atmosphere, and the geography will be sufficient at squeezing out that moisture overhead. adding up the rain through monday the the estimate from the weather prediction center, a branch of noaa, we are talking 2 to 3 inches of rain even in the santa clara valley, around san jose. 2 to 4 inches of rain around the tri-valley, and other parts of the east bay. 3 to 5 inches of rain in severances go. 5 to 8 inches of rain possible in the santa cruz mountains, and similar for much of the north bay. we will have to watch for debris flow issues. you may view this with skepticism as dry as we have been recently. even if we get half of this much, that is a significant amount of rain for the middle of october. right now we see breaks in the cloud cover. it's definitely warmed us up a little bit. 62 degrees right now in santa rosa, because everywhere else
5:20 pm
it's in the mid to low 70s. it does feel sticky with the humidity still in place. it won't be the case tomorrow. once the rain moves through, drier and cooler air will take over until the next round of rain moves in. temperatures tonight dropped to the mid to upper 50s. high temperatures on friday, not warming up very much. low to mid 60s around the bay, with mostly mid to upper 60s further inland. they are well below average for this time of year. the 7 day forecast does include that heavy rain on sunday, with lingering showers on monday, potentially into tuesday before we get a few dry days by wednesday and thursday. temperatures will warm up once the atmosphere dries out returning to near normal levels by wednesday and thursday of next week. we watch the rain tonight, and we are watching that atmospheric river aimed to us sunday and sunday night. if you're confused about the phrasing atmospheric river, we will talk about that were coming up at 5:30. coming up, we go inside chase center as the warriors get ready for the first home game of the season.
