4:01 am
morning yeah, this cold front that is making its way across the region. this is our second system or second weather maker right here. >> just part of this broader week of rainfall that is making its return across the bay area and making for certainly some wet commute out there. and today is going to be no different. heavy rainfall at times as we work our way through this morning. commute. this time around. it is going to be a quicker burst of heavier concentrate to drain. so rather than spreading it out like the light rainfall. we had 2 days ago or the moderate and even pockets of heavier rainfall. we had yesterday. what we are seeing today is a very well developed a line of showers that is formed right along this cold frontal boundary. that's also going to drop temperatures today and results in winds gusting well, in excess of 30 miles per hour in some areas. it's now just dropping into parts of the bay. and as you can see, there are some embedded areas of heavy rainfall in here. and as that system moves right over the bay area. this is going to make for a quick change of pace. as far as road conditions go and that's why
4:02 am
we're going to keep you updated so much as far as where we're sitting. also, you can know that we do have our burn scars from recent fires outlined in red. these areas are going to be susceptible to to to some of these heavier showers, especially now that the ground is saturated napa up to saint helene as well as petaluma down through nevado and up to santa rosa are in the midst of some shower activity roadways becoming increasingly wet. many spots. some of our heaviest of intensity rainfall at this very moment is right along the shoreline searching from the golden gate bridge down through western areas of san francisco on into daly city pacifica and eventually further south into half moon bay. those areas of deep green and yellow indicating areas where intensity of rainfall is a higher and the showers are only going to further and further inland as we work our way over the next few minutes here. still pretty quiet for the east bay. you have seen a quiet morning thus far rainfall is right on your doorstep, though, now making its approach into richmond in the richmond center fell bridge in the midst of it.
4:03 am
western span of the golden gate bridge. now also starting to see some light shower activity. little bit further southward. you're also still quiet across the south bay. but that is also soon to change as you have showers right on your doorstep as well. hugging the coastline about to push over the santa cruz mountains and will eventually make their way on over into further inland portions of the south bay future cast of rainfall total shows that today rainfall should amount to around a quarter of an inch to a half an inch of rain. that's a pretty decent rain right there. now as we work our way through the rest of this forecast rainfall totals will really start to increase come saturday night on into sunday morning. that's when our heaviest of rainfall of the week that we've had. we can expect it. as for current temperatures right now we're in the 60's. we're really not going to see a lot of movement from there this afternoon as daytime highs will really only rise into the 60's later on. so make sure to bring the rain jacket be prepared for wet conditions and a cooler feel
4:04 am

4:18 am
showers pushing in and out right across the region. pockets of heavier rainfall imbedded in the lighter to moderate showers in green by the time we reach 08:00am the north bay is starting the process of clearing out. then by 9 o'clock hour, we'll start to clear out for the rest of us. that heaviest of rainfall really shifting out to the central valley in the sierra foothills snowfall becoming an issue up in the sierra nevada, not so much an issue as far as fact that we need to see that snow. but if you are heading up there today. do expect some slick conditions. the rest of the day today on into tomorrow. after that point looks nice and dry after that tomorrow evening, a resurgence of rainfall that will really affect the north bay on into saturday night. but start to affect the rest of the bay area into your sunday morning hours, especially and then into sunday itself, we will see a resurgence of heavy rain sunday into monday will see the greatest of rainfall potential. that's when you're going to see these numbers on our map right here. really soaring upwards. again, this is by the time we reach sunday into monday. that's when we're
