then over to the south bay, downtown san jose, just had that rain push out, but just behind it we have more on the way. here's a closer look at what to expect for your thursday. the heaviest rain will be happening in the morning, on and off wins from the southwest, 15 to 35 miles per hour. heading into this afternoon, looking out for the possibility of small hail and also a chance for isolated thunderstorms. with the instability in the atmosphere, this could be a possibility into this evening. also keeping a close eye on that heavy sierra snow. not a good day to be heading out to the tahoe area. hold off and wait for that. i'll give you a closer look at when your best window for that will be and when the rain is expected to move out, how much rain we'll get heading into the weekend and i'll have all the details. first let's check in with mike. >> this is some of what you're talking about. sloppy road conditions. this is 101 in san jose.
vianey talked about that rain traveling across the map and heading to the south through 101. that leaves behind the wet roadways, the green highlighting here, that's where things are slick. maybe standing water. we have one truck that went off the road here, not a major injury crash, but one lane blocked 680 around jackson, just as the rain came through we got that report. the altamont pass, a lighter build there, but watching for trouble spots. contra costa county, highway 4 back to pittsburg, antioch is where that commute generates right about now. we'll see if the rain complicates things. the slick roadways, especially on and off-ramps. our free nbcbay area app is a great tool when the rain starts to roll in. you can see when it will arrive in your neighborhood. download it keeping track of the forecast and it is more accurate than the iphone weather app.

the position to let some kid talk back to me. period. that's how it is. >> it makes me upset. it makes me angry as an educator. >> reporter: this woman works with students at the school. >> you don't talk to children like that. don't treat children like that. >> reporter: in another recording, teacher is heard engaging with his students. >> i have shot kids younger than him. you're lucky things have changed this year and i can't put my hands on you and take you out of here. >> reporter: san diego unified superintendent put out a statement to parents saying incidents about inappropriate comments has been brought to his attention and district is activity investigating the circumstances surrounding the incident and in doing so the personnel involved have been removed from the classroom. both say more needs to be done.

wind is kind of blowing things around as well. we'll look at that forecast with meteorologist vianey arana. >> we are under a microclimate weather alert. a ton of ponding water. we all probably hit some on our commute in. we're also going to talk about the chance of thunderstorm activity and possibly hail in the forecast. let's start with satellite radar. live right now, you can see some lightning strikes now. a lot of this a bit further up north. there is the possibility that we could see some of that heading into this evening. i do want to give you a closer look at where we're seeing those heavier pockets of rain. using stormranger, you can see pushing through fairfield, con card, san rafael, near oakland we are getting the heavier pockets. the green is pretty much widespread through downtown san francisco through south san francisco, you can see some of those heavier pockets as well.
down through burlingame, expect to see that rain over the next couple of hours. san jose, it was clear for a moment, but we have another little round of rain pushing in right now to san jose along 280 heading into the milpitas area. some rain behind it in palo alto. here's what we'll be monitoring into this afternoon. we have the heavy rain expected to happen between now and about 8:00 a.m. so right in the middle of your morning commute. you want to take that extra time today. on and off, winds from the southwest, 15 to 35. small hail is a possibility. isolated lightning as well and heavy sierra snow. let's talk about the temperatures as well. we'll be just slightly cooler but not by much. current temperatures actually pretty mild, in the 50s. you've probably been feeling the humidity. it's running a bit warmer. look at this, 5 degrees warmer in hayward. oakland 5 degrees warmer. let's talk about the
hour-by-hour outlook. i'll take this into the evening. the heaviest pocket is between now and 8:00. we won't be completely in the clear. we'll have on and off showers around dinnertime. 5:30, look at some of those areas of rain near san jose, los gatos area, san francisco as well. by 8:30, a lot of that rain has cleared out of the north bay, has cleared out of san francisco. we'll be left with that cloud cover. we'll have a couple areas of rain pushing through the south bay as well into the morgan hill, san jose area. into early friday morning, we'll have a bit of that leftover rainfall in the early morning commute, but not as heavy as what we're seeing right now. by friday evening, it will be completely cleared out for the weekend. i talked about how it wasn't a good day to travel to tahoe. here's the reason why. we have a couple inches of snow expected for today and tomorrow. that can make for a dangerous commute and the winds are
picking up. you don't want to be stuck in that zone. clear out, wait for it to get better. heading into the weekend will be your best window. tonight, we will see the majority of the rain clear out of the north bay and south bay. shower activity friday morning. by saturday and sunday things clear out. temperatures will be mild overall. inland areas will warm up a bit heading into saturday and sunday. we bump up by 10, 15 degrees in some spots. we could see some 80s heading into sunday fun day. 79 degrees. we dry out for the remainder of the week ahead. we still have some chance for activity as far as the radar goes into tonight and into early tomorrow morning. let's check on how the roads are doing with mike. >> you mentioned the ponding or the standing water or the puddles. golden gate bridge, you can see how much sheen is on the roadway. the cones have been lifted up and cleared in the last few
minutes, we had a crew going on this span. you may find a reason to slow down. the flashing lights, of course, do that. another reason to slow down, when you see standing water, getting off the bay bridge west 80 to 81. going into lombard, there is that transition where there's some puddling going on. be careful. this green highlighting across the north bay, contra costa county, that's where you will have slick conditions. couple crashes on highway 24, nothing major, but we'll get more updates from chp. 84 has these lanes closed, blocked off for the overnight road crews. this weekend they'll close it off all weekend. mission and 680 are your alternates, this weekend we have the full closure all weekend. you can't cut through the canyon along the train tracks. the rest of the bay shows a
