gate through the first half of tomorrow night, but we get closer to presunrise hours of friday morning, and party chance of rain that works its way further inland, but the showers look less and less impressive as they move farther east, and as they try to make their way into the santa clara valley. we're not talking about much in the way of measurable rain overall. this hit-or-miss pat learn yield a couple hundredths of an inch of rain overall. barely more than a trace for a lot of locations, maybe few hundredths of an inch for san francisco, maybe more than a tenth of an inch for santa rosa, but that looks like the upper end of what this system will be campaign of producing, but again, write will take every single drop. still 60 degrees in san francisco. everybody else is down into the 50s. even down to 53 already in livermore. a good-looking dog walking forecast for bug in san francisco.
