11:20 pm
that will fall. a green means typically half an inch to an inch of rain. most of us will not see a washout, and around the mountains we'll probably see more rain than we're seeing in the lower areas. so by sunday, all this rain will have cleared out. the rain coming to an end tomorrow morning, the heavier stuff, then by sunday we should see some sunshine returning. speaking of sunshine, that's what we're looking at for the rangers losing to the giants. for tomorrow, temperatures are nice and warm. raj, a little cool out there right now, but nice and warm for tomorrow, temperatures in the 70s and 80ls. a look at our 4:00 temperatures tomorrow, 66 degrees in fremont, 66 in loss gaas gatos and then start to warm things up. high pressure will build up in the south, so tomorrow look four clearing skies, beautiful for sunday and then for the rest of the work week, for monday, tuesday, wednesday and thursday, things are warming up and
