midday, early afternoon and then spreading across the rest of the bay area as we head into the middle to late afternoon hours and continuing into the evening. i think the evening commute will be sloppy. moving through the bay area after the sun goes down. once that moves through, back into an off and on pattern for the rest of wednesday night into the first few hours of thursday. it is lower than a 50/50 chance of additional rain after the sun comes up and there will be a few hit and miss showers, also, hit and miss sunshine. mixed bag of weather. with this storm system we are talking about half an inch to an inch of total rainfall in most locations, more in the higher elevation spots, around an inch and a half for kentfield and the santa cruz mountains, not enough that we are likely to see flooding problems. we are on the look out.
and the strongest gusts as the heavier rain tomorrow afternoon, just in time for rush hour. 30-40 mile-an-hour gusts on the coast. close to 30 miles an hour farther inland. more rain down the line. the dry stretch that kicks in by thursday afternoon continues friday and saturday. continuing on monday and tuesday, another round of rain, potentially associated with another atmospheric river. >> temperatures are dropping off. chilly tonight. already chilly in livermore and santa rosa. we will drop down to the 30s inland with lower to middle 30s inland to start the day on wednesday. if you want to go for a dog for a walk go ahead. if you never smelled wet dog it is a different breed of wet dog.
temperatures will warm up, even with the strong southerly winds trying to warm things up, the clouds, the rain, going to win the battle for temperatures, our highs will climb up into the lower 50s pretty much across the board. my maps got stuck. that is fun. the red light is on. i know it is trying to trigger the forecast. i will walk over here and see if i can kick it. not literally. it may come to that to see if it will respond. there we go. we will go to the seven-day forecast because i am running out of time rapidly and slow you the details over the next several days. the temperatures will change a lot. there is the rain on thursday, the next round of rain moving in by monday and tuesday. we will see pretty similar conditions across the bay area. the next round of rain early next week should impact all of the rainfall. >> you gave me more room to fall in love with comet on your graphic. straight ahead in sports, can we crown steph curry enough?
