>> from the area's local news station. you're watching the kron 00:00am morning news at 4. >> good morning and thanks for joining us for the kron 4 morning news here on this thursday. november 4th a rate of harvey. thanks for waking up with us. bright and early on this wet morning. you know, got in my car. definitely took me a lot longer to get going because of all of the slick pavement. i had to drive over this morning. a couple issues on the roadways and the weather moving through the bay area right now. i'm meteorologists on travel with a look at that forecast. good morning, john. hey, good morning. rain. absolutely. a slick morning out there for sure. as you are venturing out on the roadways do expect rain to be falling right now.
>> you're not hearing it outside your window. you're likely to still see a couple more showers heading on through the bay area this morning. now, as far as conditions go right now, it is one to give yourself that extra time. it is very wet out there. and even though we've had a couple of times, a practice with that rainfall. now you just want to make sure that you're getting to work safely and slowly looking outside of financial district conditions are certainly wet on the lens of this camera. and you can see why. with one look at radar right here. let's start with the core of the bay because we are seeing some of our most widespread of rainfall situated across the inland east bay. now a lot of this is very light rainfall right now. but it does stretch from milpitas through fremont an up to see in lee and rowse and lorenzo in hayward this morning. as for the grade on up into the tri valley. also quite wet and from dublin up to san ramon. also on the weather side of things, a little bit further northward in areas like oakland walnut creek, concord enrichment have dried out a little bit more.
we're still looking at some light sprinkles on the bay bridge as well as in san francisco, south san francisco down through pacifica and daly city. but definitely the most widespread of rainfall is for the south bay right now and about to be working its way more and more so on into san jose. so the direction that this system is really taking is steering this line of showers right here gradually to the south and east and that means areas like san jose can expect rainfall intensity to increase here in about 20 minutes. i know that in the south bay, you've been sitting out at least the heavier intensity rainfall for much of the evening but is definitely going to be seeing picking up in your neck of the woods. here shortly. as for the dumbarton bridge is actively raining. so as you make that crossing from palo alto over to fremont be mindful of wet conditions there. highway 92 is also very wet. having seen saw that rainfall over the past hour or so. and as well as highway one. oh, one highway 2.80, is 82 as you cross across the lower end of the peninsula into the south bay. some wet conditions
sprinkles picking up in santa clara and a little bit on the heavier side out to the east in northeast of san jose from milpitas up to freeman is a showed you a second ago, north bay your first spot to be drying out. definitely quieter across both marine sonoma and napa counties. few remaining sprinkles right around napa itself. and if we zoom out just a touch again, you can see solano county mostly south and east of 80 out towards rio. vista is one of those spots in the north bay. that is still holding on to some light showers overall, though we've definitely see conditions coming down and this next area of rainfall is already on its way out. moving in quickly about to be moving out quickly as well. so an early morning dose of rain that really isn't going to be sticking around for too terribly long that means our early commuters are really getting the slickest of conditions later, commuters will start to dry out 50's and 60's for our current temperatures. as for the rest of the day. we will see some damp conditions well through the late morning. but by the
