yoe're probably not. yeah. no. you know, you there might be a couple breaks. this is not like a real strong cold front. so you might see a couple breaks. >> and between the clouds. but most likely not a great night for viewing. what? yeah, it's going to be need side. if you can see it. the moon coming up and there you go. you've got the eclipse of the moon tonight and it's going to be a long one over 3 hours almost 3 and a half hours that is a very long eclipse. unfortunately, all the clouds moving in, obscuring the view of the moon and boy, the clouds already moved in already we can see over san francisco now and all across the bay area. in fact, we're seeing a few of those showers popping up as well. rain so far has been located in northern california. i think that's really where the main front is still, you can still see up to the north here they're see most of the rainfall. we're seeing some showers out ahead of that main cold front. so more scattered pop up showers around the bay area. although look at san jose now getting in the mix here. you've got some moderate amounts of rain begin to be picked up on doppler radar begin to move through their parts of sunnyvale and campbell and also headed
toward the east. so expect more of that throughout the night tonight that front's going to drop through and probably going to begin to fall apart, though, as it comes on by tonight, cloudy skies scattered showers tomorrow, mostly cloudy and cool probably a few lingering showers, especially in the morning hours. then high pressure is going to return for the weekend and it should dry things up. a fog may be a big concern. is that front comes through and really just kind of falls apart you see right here kind of hung up and then kind of drops in the bay area. but then kind of just slowly kind of fades away leave behind a lot of that moisture. so we'll see some scattered showers out there tonight. not much in the way of rain, probably light amounts, you get a 507 inch of rain out of this when you're probably doing pretty well. temperatures tomorrow. 50's and some 60's outside next few days. we're going to see a return to some dry weather over the weekend. looks like saturday and sunday should be nice. but by monday, the clouds roll back in and now we're looking at a slight chance on tuesday alone. lot of folks are traveling in that time of year. so we'll keep our eyes on that as we head into next week. thank you,
