6:20 am
here's emeryville this morning. upper 40s to near 50 around emeryville and oakland. 43 in morgan hill. good morning half moon bay. 50 for you. and a look at sfo where the fog not as widespread but it's a cool morning once again. we should get used to this. usually you are waking up to numbers in the 40s. with a couple of clear spots, not out of the question to get upper 30s with the fog in the protected valleys. we have fog out by the delta, which, as i said that, it's clear. visibility pretty good right now. but a mile and three quarters santa rosa and concord at about 5-mile visibility. so as we take a look at our sutro tower camera, changes today are subtle. a few more high clouds in the north bay. but we will see some breaks around. and then the rain holds off for the most part until the evening hours, and gets going overnight. takes us through the monday morning commute. much of the day on monday. and becomes widely scattered late tomorrow. a couple more impulses behind it, keeping us in a pretty unsettled pattern.
6:21 am
here's a look at what you can expect then as we go through the afternoon with 4:00 today, cloudy skies in the north bay. by 10:00 we've got some showers around san francisco into berkeley, over just around 80 and then through the overnight hours things are certainly getting wet up toward the north bay. but looks like the bulls eye, the focus of the heaviest rain, will be a little bit to the south of the bay. but still notice by mid-afternoon we could see some locally heavy downpours around the city. it could make for some localized flooding. we have the ground already saturated." winds will kick up anywhere from 30 to 40 miles an hour. the gusts along the coast. and as you take a look at the further indication of the heavier rain around the santa cruz mountains, that's where we look like we could pick up anywhere from about 2 inches there to about a half-inch in the areas that will experience the lesser amounts. overall a pretty decent-looking system. it won't be raining the whole
6:22 am
day, but we will look for temperatures to stay cool today, tomorrow, with a series of fronts moving through. 61 the warmer location in oakland. 60 with more sun san jose and the accuweather seven-day forecast, for the most part the rain holds off for the overnight hours. periods of rain tomorrow. breezy, more rain on tuesday. by the second half of the day on wednesday things begin to dry out through thursday. another system on friday. you can see what is showing up leave on live doppler 7hd. that's the radar. that's anytime with the abc7 news weather app. it's free an apple's app store or google play and we have more information on so things going our way. >> but for today, those of us heading to a local bar or something for the 49ers-seahawks game, probably grab a light jacket? >> yeah. it little on the cool side. >> thank you, lisa. people dressed up-like santa clauss walked
