moderate rain around. cantalo road. you are seeing some showers across that region heading out towards elmira and this storm isn't quite done with us as we take a look at a wider perspective here. you will notice just over 100 miles. way offshore. we have more lightning. so those thunderstorms are going to continue to move in. the biggest thing here. is this area of low pressure that is spinning off the coast and as it continues to spin off the coast. it's going to keep feeding us moisture. you get the heating from the sun tomorrow and there's potential for some more thunderstorms. so let's talk about rainfall exceeding monthly averages in just one day yesterday. there was one daily record in oakland at the museum 157 inch the previous record was 1300 set back in 2019. now downtown oakland's average rain is about a tenth of an inch so they got well over the average as you can see here many areas surpassing their average rainfall for the day and we are

done so that low will lift out of here and we are expecting a chance to dry out much needed rain though because in the middle of fire season, it does help to dampen the fuels which means the fire danger does go down 40s to 60s first thing tomorrow morning a few showers in the northern part of our viewing area tomorrow afternoon. it's going to be sun clouds breezy and some scattered showers. so not everyone's gonna see what weather just keep that in mind just like we did today the accuweather seven day forecast. it's a light level one storm for tomorrow. carl scattered showers still a chance of thunder on day, we have a few morning showers before we start to see drier pattern setting up and then as we head into thursday the season changes and so does our weather pattern so fall begins, and we're going to start to see temperatures rising. so warmer weather autumn warmth will push temperatures into the mid-90s inland for the weekend low 70s coast side. it's going to be beach weather for you and then as we head into monday, it'll be back to the

documented case of covid-19 experts say it shows a covid infection could cause inflammation that exacerbates changes already occurring in the brain. however, other viruses can cause similar inflammation in a televised interview yesterday president biden said the pandemic is over reaction has been swift with many experts saying they disagree with that abc 7 news special correspondent dr. alok patel a weighed in with me earlier today on abc 7 news at 4. my take will be supplemented by the take of multiple public health officials across this country, but no the pandemic is not over in terms of two basic definitions. there is no conserved textbook
definition of endemic but most experts agree that endemic means that there's a constant presence of a disease. we don't yet know what cova's really going to do this winter we suspect they'll be less debts and illness, but we don't really know and then also endemic seems to now have taken this political kind of public perception that covid-19 is no longer arthritis. it's not a big deal when we also know that's not true given the fact that 200,000 people have
died from covid-19 this year alone. we're still seeing several hundred deaths a day. so in both terminologies it it is not yet over. the pandemic is not over and in your judgment and those of other public health officials. it has not yet transitioned to an endemic problem. is that correct? because a check of monkeypox cases in the bay area. san francisco still has the most nearly 800 at last check. there are more than 200 in alameda county and all right, dan and i want to show you live doppler 7 right now. we are in a lull most of the activity is moving on out, but don't be fooled by what you're seeing on radar which is a quieter picture from just a few hours ago. we do have a few spotty showers showing up right around middletown parker diamond ranch road, but this is really

miles an hour and as you will notice moving north northwestward, it is expected to intensify into a major category for hurricane late tomorrow going into wednesday night and even in thursday, but it's going to remain parallel to the east coast. well out in the atlantic the biggest concern has been the heavy rain and the flash flooding that is still happening in the dominican republic storm totals are expected to be up to 20 inches and locally could see up to 30 inches there. so that is the biggest concern here in the bay area accuweather 7 day forecast scatter showers tomorrow still a chance of thunder with the level one lingering showers wednesday before we
