mountain gap. sometimes it comes down to the south county. didn't see that this morning and it can come in through the tri-valley into livermore and pleasanton and we can also see it coming through the carquinez straight and moving into concord and across the bay and into the north bay. so at times, it's very slow to clear. it's really thick. especially during those early morning hours. and it can keep our temperatures down even cooler than normal. that's what we're seeing happening today with highs reaching into the mid-60s. some of those spots that will only get peeks of sunshine. reach into the mid-60s for today. kind of cool out there but not seeing any rain and all of that still headed to the north of us. this system is slowly dipping to the south and will make it closer to the bay area. will give us more clouds by tomorrow morning but not a lot of rain. a few of those spotty light showers will stay across parts of the north bay and once again, this system weakening. there's another one right behind that that could bring in a chance of showers on thursday.
11:21 am
although the models really aren't putting out that much in terms of how much rain we could see. and then we go into a very dry weekend where we get a lot of sunshine and also possibly a dr rainfall to mitigate that risk of any fire danger but looking at what we're seeing for now in terms of how much rain we could get, maybe a quarter of an inch for parts of the north bay. that's not bad but as you head farther to the south, there could be much less, maybe a few hundredths of an inch. and going into the rest of the month, some of our long-range models show that we could possibly wrap up november witha above normal rainfall. we don't see it in the near term forecast but maybe around thanksgiving or shortly thereafter we could see a decent system moving in. we'll see if that pans out. the temperatures stay in the 60s. so you want to make sure you keep that jacket close by all throughout the week and the umbrella, not so much but i'll keep you updated. >> okay. we'll keep tabs.
