clouds our way today, but that's about it. the one to the north is the one we are thinking might bring us some rain, but now it looks like clouds and a few sprinkles for the north bayonets unfortunately about it. as we head into the peak of our fire season i would love to see us get meaningful rain, but not going to happen this time around. 59 degrees in san francisco, the 60s in walnut creek and san jose. 54 in santa rosa and 62 in napa. going to take you through future cast and show you how the system to the northwest of us develops. we get basically the tale of it and that entails a few sprinkles and some clouds. notice here, if we look tomorrow at 3:00 we are all pretty much in cloud cover and you see little pops on the radar, but nothing much. we are not expecting any significant rain. i think at most we get maybe a little light sprinkling in the north bay, 1/100 or 2/100 of an inch of rain, not much. tonight: cloudy, tomorrow, again, kind of a lackluster system makes his way through and then we have a warming
