still fairly calm out there for most of us on the peninsula down into the south and the east bay, nothing really to know yet. we're seeing a line of showers that has worked its way in from bodega bay on over to rohnert park right there along highway one. oh, one up in the north bay pulling out across the region. you do see widespread showers up in mendocino county now, now starting to work their way into lake county as well. heaviest of rainfall still situated to the north and west of us that is going to drop in. this is a warm system, though, with southerly winds pressing on into the region. so that is actually preventing a lot of snow impact from this one up in the sierra nevada temperatures up around lake tahoe right now in the low 40's and upper 30's. so not cool enough to be seeing any sort of snoo accumulation up there from this system future cast of winds. you notice that southerly wind that is actually keeping temperatures fairly mild this morning. some of us starting off the day in the low 60's. so this is a fairly warm storm. it's not a huie one. definitely something that just keeps us on that weather pattern, which is
reassuring. but can a drop in the bucket in the long run. definitely nothing like we saw a couple weeks back this morning 09:30am right here. heaviest of rainfall in the north bay might or showers to the south inching towards the noontime. we'll see some of our most widespread of rainfall showers on and off into the afternoon after that point. by the time we work into the evening tonight, shower activity does become less and a little bit more barely hanging on into early tomorrow morning. tomorrow itself does come along with overall clearing and drying conditions and into the start of wednesday. some more dry skies before wednesday evening. showers do return setting us up into a wet thursday. as for today's rainfall potential very lights for the south bay san jose. you may see a 10th of an inch. same for you in mountain view, san francisco down to pacifica around a quarter of an inch heavier totals from center found the bottle on up to santa rosa. more so closer to half an inch of rainfall by the time we work our way a little bit later on this week we'll see some additional showers on top of that that
could amount to santa rosa seeing in total this week around an inch and a half of rainfall. sandra fell around 3 quarters of an inch. so it's definitely nice to see this forecast staying active enough for us as we work our way into the start of november. now 60's for your daytime highs today oakland hayward fremont san jose and san francisco, each of 65. well conquered at 66 for the high working our way through the week. today's chance of rainfall should diminish into very early tomorrow morning. showers do arrive again late wednesday night into early thursday morning. aside from that temperatures remain in the 60's to barely low 70's by wednesday and a little bit of sunshine to start the weekend by friday. back to tom, thank you that. all right. let's get a look at your bridges this morning. starting with the bay bridge where. >> we did have an earlier accident on the bridge. they were shutting down a couple lanes. 80 westbound just west of treasure island exit looks like accident may still be there this morning. so again, i'm seeing a little under 11 minutes to make it into the city because it's still pretty early. the san mateo bridge
