in the sierra nevada right on through the afternoon. so right now it's 35 degrees with some rain. looking at temperatures near 40. so it's the upper elevations that we will look for the accumulation, 8 to 16 inches above 7,000 feet and about half a foot at 6500 feet. so today just 51 on the storm impact scale. we will be detecting some showers from time to time. perhaps a thunderstorm. the winds will be light and here's the view from mt. tam where the rain has really favored the north bay yesterday, anywhere from two inches to 2.5 inches. and this morning it's wet with a little bit of mist and fog. 56 in mountain view, as well as is san jose. 55 gilroy. san francisco. delays of about 45 minutes at sfo. here's the way it looks in downtown san francisco, sutro tower. some fog over into the east bay, as well. 57 napa, 56 in hayward and liver more. finally at sfo it's gray. the tarmac is a little wet out there.

north bay you will see a few light showers. through the evening hours some of those showers will sink south into the east bay. then by wednesday morning, we are back into a partly cloudy day. so looking at temperatures today, it's cool around the back side of that system. and with a little moisture in the atmosphere it will work to allow for a few light showers, maybe a thunderstorm today with low 60s. you could see a heavier downpour at times if you get caught under one of those cells. at levi's stadium looking at numbers in the low 60s with a chance of a shower. of the accuweather seven-day forecast, some rain showers today. tuesday night into wednesday, i didn't put a number on that system, it looks light. and the system thanksgiving night also looks light and the one after. at least they are going to be continuing, even though they will be on the light side. we are at much as ten times above normal up in santa rosa in terms of rainfall.
