within this wet season. not what we've been seeing the last couple of years will get a few little storms and then go months without seeing any wet weather. so we are tracking an atmospheric river, though. that is going to bring us some much needed rain to the bay area. upwards of 3 inches for north bay valleys and coastal mountains. most of the bay area could see one to 2 inches of rain. we could see some gusty winds as well, mainly in the 30 to 40 miles per hour range. so that's below wind advisory level. but we could see gusts upwards of 50 miles per hour throughout the day on thursday. that's going to be the peak of this week atmospheric river with another storm set to arrive by this weekend. so let's track it all hour by hour with radar for very dry, calm and clear. but future cast for going to reopen that storm doors early as wednesday night for the bay area, especially along the coast in the north bay. but we are going to see some light bands of rain thursday morning for the north bay starting to

certainly on the cool side for downtown san francisco. 57 degrees when we should be in the low 60's, dry and clear conditions and calmer winds speeds allowing for temperatures to cool down tonight. fairfax and petaluma. 43 degrees still in the low 50's for san jose oakland and downtown san francisco. but just barely with overnight lows below freezing for santa rosa. tomorrow is going to be slightly cooler than today with widespread mid to upper 50's seasonal temperatures for santa rosa. and even those of you in novato. but as we take a look ahead at the extended outlook after this week, we're going to get back to a dry pattern, hopefully of short-lived, but i'm really excited for this upcoming weekend atmospheric river cause. it's been a while since we've had one of those. it's good good start. it's great. yeah, thanks, guys. >> we could soon start seeing more electric big-rig trucks and freeways. the state of california says proved a billion dollars electrification charging

in a later phone call, the governor reportedly told president biden to expect newsom's full support behind a biden reelection telling the president, quote, i'm all in put me in coach, we have your back. does this surprise you? no, it doesn't surprise me. loyola law school professor jessica levinson says while newsom 2024 decision is not a surprise that could always change depending on whether biden himself says yes or no to a 2024 run. >> the question, of course, is if president biden doesn't run. and at that point, i do think it's strange common sense to say that governor newsom has no interest in running. he's created a national platform for himself. he has in some ways acted like the face of the younger generation of the democratic party. previous california governors have tried to unseat incumbent presidents from their own party. then governor ronald reagan unsuccessfully ran against president gerald ford in the 1976 gop primary. and 4 years later, then governor jerry brown did so against president jimmy carter
in the democratic primary. >> levinson says do not expect the same of newsom. it is unusual for someone within the president's party to really mount a successful challenge in the primary. it does divide the party. you need an enormous. >> sound ation of fundraising of supporters in order to try and mount a successful primary challenge to a sitting president. still, she says even of 2024 is a quiet year for newsom. do not count him out in future years. does he have an eye on national aspirations? i think the answer is yes, he does doesn't mean that he absolutely will run the moment that he can. no, it doesn't. >> and that was a tome wallace reporting for us. for now, the governor says he's focused on the state capitol where the legislature is set to reconvene next week. >> in the south bay, tiny homes might soon be coming to to train stations in san jose. it's part of the city's push build more temporary housing for the homeless city council is looking at converting some of its property. it's a
