3:50 pm

3:55 pm
erica. >>i sanaa's well this morning we saw some dense fog but it has since diminished if we check in along the coast pacifica looking clear we are seeing some blue out there and some bloke cumulus clouds moving through the area if you're going to be by the coast careful for those waves the sneaker waves we're seeing breaking waves up to 30 feet we have that high surf advisory still in effect through the rest of today into tonight so. >>we are going to see an increase in our cloud cover this is tomorrow morning around 07:00am as you can see on futurecast and then we see next round of rain moving through sonoma county after 11:00am is when we're going to see it head and then it shifts down to the southeast the rest the bay area will see some in a san francisco, the peninsula and parts of the east bay but this system is weekend breaks apart by the time it gets to the south bay. so if you're
3:56 pm
out in san jose might not even see the showers just that thick cloud cover and then around wednesday it dries up we will see some drizzle maybe along the coast. a thursday looks like it will be a mostly sunny until later in the night when we will see an increase cloud cover and then our second round of rain will hit again in the same direction here it hits the north bay first and ships down to the southeast and then san francisco will see some light showers early friday morning we're talking about 01:02am, is when we're going to see most of it ahead and then tries up later in the morning around 8 o'clock. so still in a severe drought as you know it's not going to really help us the next round of showers that we're going to this week but hopefully in the next couple months we can make up because we're not even halfway where we should be for this time of the year in terms rain amounts. so here is a last
