the side of caution and hopefully with a few days of rest we'll get him right. >> reporter: well, i asked steve kerr who would start tonight, he wouldn't tell me, but i think it's going to be patrick mccall. we'll have a lot more coming up in sports, i'm mike schuman live at oracle. >> now we want to see your warriors pride, share your pictures online and add the #dubson7. it's time to turn to our weather and maybe some more rain coming our way. >> boy, it's the rainy season, spencer that will not end. >> so there's little rain to our north right now, and as it sweeps southward, we're going to use santa rosa as our lookout point. we'll see almost no measurable rain until after 10:00 p.m. or so, a couple hundredths of an
inch and it will move even farther south and into the remainder of the bay area, let's take you to live doppler 7, you can see that moisture to the north, but right now we have mainly blue sky out over the bay, these are some current conditions, 65 here in san francisco, 67 in oakland, upper 60s also in mountain view, san jose, gill roy, a temperature of 59 degrees at half moon bay. this is a view from emeryville. 62 in santa rosa right now, and mid 60s in napa, novato, fairfield and livermore. and this is a view of the golden gate where we see partly cloudy skies, we'll have light showers late tonight, early tomorrow morning. and sunny skies by midday tomorrow, and we'll have a dry pattern through the weekend. moving along to overnight low,
generally in the low to mid 50s, and it will be generally mild overnight, and with the passing showers, will will be only wet spots with the morning commute. the approaching storm ranks 1 on the storm impact scale, that's a storm of light intensity. we're not even expecting even a quarter of an inch in the north bay. that will be our wettest location, other locations around the bay area, should see less than a 10th of an inch. this is our forecast animation, notice it will be wet up around ukiah, it will take until about 10:00 or 11:00 until it get into the santa rosa area. as the morning commute comes under way, there will be widespread rainfall at that point. by mid morning, the storm should be over and we'll have a fairly mild day coming our way tomorrow. let's take a look at the thursday planner, 7:00 in the morning, partly cloudy, with some damp roadways, but then

of unicorns, but you could get internet access from a helicopter. >> it's all thanks to facebook and apparently this is for emergencies omt. >> a dreamer deported. tonight we dig into the case of a young man sent from the u.s. to mexico. kept me calm, she told me what to do, open the door and put the dog away because the dog was barking. >> you decide who the hero is, the 12-year-old boy who called 911 or the

spending more time in court on cases, the department also -- first amendment gatherings as well as services for homeless. tonight the supervisors could vote to send more money to the board of supervisors that does make the final decision. abc7 news was there when plane clothed dmv agents checked to make sure that the rite people used the placards when they park. >> it's frustrating to see someone park in a disabled parking space and not have a placard or the plates on the car. >> we see this a lot, especially in metropolitan areas where parking can be congested or can be a problem. >> california has issued 2.4 million disabled placards.
