5:16 am
we've got mid level clouds here and it's a relatively cool morning but very much in line with what you would expect, mid to upper 50s. things will start to look different once we get to the early afternoon. if we switch from looking at the temperatures and put the map that shows us where the clouds are and where they're not, there is 880, the clouds we were looking at for east bay, san jose relatively clear. it's cloudy for the city, so much so it is misting out. this is one of the marine layers where you get light mist on the car. that's if you are in the city. there is a fog advisory on golden gate bridge because it is low and thick enough there. it's a gray start for valleys of sonoma and napa. watch clouds melt back by the time we've gotten to late morning, 11:00 a.m. at that time you will notice the next batch of clouds, higher clouds coming in today, different than we would typically see. these are leftovers from thunderstorms that have been going to our south and east in
5:17 am
l.a. and the rest of southern california. the impacts here pretty much get summed up like this. through this afternoon and again on tuesday morning there is about a 20% chance for isolated thunderstorms and gusty erratic winds that can go with that for really any location in the bay area. here is what we are looking at. it was an active night last night through las vegas with a major complex of thunderstorms that rolled through southern nevada and has worked to southern california. you see all the rain. what we care about is what happens next. if we watch development later today, another complex of thunderstorms develops over sierra by late morning. then those storms try to hold together to get here by tuesday. there is our 20% chance for isolated thunderstorm. if we take a closer look at that, the high resolution forecast model which gives us the best depiction we can get, we have to keep in mind
5:18 am
computer forecast models don't often get this exact when we look at the forecast for isolated thunderstorms. there is our 20% chance for first part of tuesday. daytime highs today, we'll be in mid to upper 80s for inland locations. that's about a five to seven degree cool down from yesterday. 77 santa rosa, 70s for much of the immediate bay. we've got san francisco, oakland, san jose noticeably warmer for san jose by later this week. as we look at the forecast for inland east bay compared to inland north bay, it's going to be hot by wednesday through friday with temperatures nearing 100 for some inland locations. gianna, how does the drive look? good morning. it is busy for those heading into altamont pass. super commuters, we have already got brake lights out of tracy as we get onto 580. two separate trouble spots, one east bound over north flynn.

i'm morgan, and there's more to me than hiv. more love, more adventure, more community. but with my hiv treatment, there's not more medicines in my pill. i talked to my doctor and switched to fewer medicines with dovato. dovato is for some adults who are starting hiv-1 treatment or replacing their current hiv-1 regimen. with just 2 medicines in 1 pill, dovato is as effective as a 3-drug regimen... to help you reach and stay undetectable. research shows people who take hiv treatment as prescribed and get to and stay undetectable can no longer transmit hiv through sex. don't take dovato if you're allergic to its ingredients or if you take dofetilide. taking dovato with dofetilide can cause serious or life-threatening side effects. hepatitis b can become harder to treat while on dovato. don't stop dovato without talking to your doctor, as your hepatitis b may worsen or become life-threatening.
5:24 am
serious or life-threatening side effects can occur, including allergic reactions, lactic acid buildup, and liver problems. if you have a rash and other symptoms of an allergic reaction, stop dovato and get medical help right away. tell your doctor if you have kidney or liver problems, or if you are, may be, or plan to be pregnant. dovato may harm your unborn baby. use effective birth control while on dovato. do not breastfeed while taking dovato. most common side effects are headache, nausea, diarrhea, trouble sleeping, tiredness, and anxiety. so much goes into who i am. hiv medicine is one part of it. ask your doctor about dovato-i did. ♪ watch cbs in bay area with the kpix 5 news app.

5:47 am
it'stomorrow, 15% chance today. it's really what we would call a low probability but high consequence situation. unique wording. low probability tells you it is not the most likely scenario. if it happens, it could be a significant issue which is why we will focus on it. considering what happened last night with thunderstorms that were quite impressive to our south and east, this is something we will have to watch closely. let me show you what this looked like over the last eight hours. major complex through las vegas last night is in los angeles. that's quite impressive to see that kind of a complex of thunderstorms make it into caw s might pact usto home, futurecast forward, and watch the redevelopment of another complex that starts to develop
5:48 am
by the afternoon over the sierra. then those storms while they will be likely a significant thunderstorm event in the sierra, as far as consequences at home, some of the thunderstorms are able to hold together and this is where we introduce the 20% chance for thunderstorms in the bay area most likely coming tomorrow morning. we've got a chance today, a 15% chance in play. most likely we notice clouds, higher clouds overhead into the late morning and early afternoon. you will in the that throughout the day. here is the close up view at home, using best information at this moment. this is high resolution rapid refresh model. it's the best model you can look at when you get this close to an actual event. even this cannot be taken literally when it comes to thunderstorms in the bay area because they're so difficult to nail down in a forecast because they happen so rarely.
