much will we get and exactly wh? exactly where? you saw how far way the system is, so we can't get those specifics. but being within three days and having the the consistency of the storm showing up the same way, we can say that confidence is high and we will get widespread rain out of this. sunday into monday. we might've showers left over on tuesday and as we look across the rest of the forecast, we will be done by the second half of the weekend even start warming up by then. back to you. you. > >> time for a check on what is ahead at six. we switch over to juliette goodrich. >> whether you take b.a.r.t. drive, you may have noticed the the commute is crowded this week week and there are new numbers to back that up. is there a sign sign of a san francisco rebound? rebound? we check with the neighborhood barbershop about the pickup in business and why they were a downtown may never be the same. > >> plus, one weekend of cleanup at oakland's largest homeless camp. there are still plenty ofe
