blue sky, wonderful, low to mid- 60s and you can see be skies clearing out. we will look at sunday in detail in just a bit. monday, the rain, interesting things will happen as you can see the system develop on the other side of the pacific which brings rain on monday afternoon. more on the details of that in one moment. this storm will be fueled by another atmospheric river but not all atmospheric rivers are the same. let's take a moment to look at what we mean when we say that. this is how the atmosphere will be lined up as the storm arrives, you see the long stream of higher concentrations of atmospheric moisture confined in a narrow ribbon and pointed at us. that is the atmospheric river. how strong it is and how long it lasts matter a lot. and where is it coming from? one distinction, we used to call these pineapple express, now we call them atmospheric rivers as there is a very good reason for that. a pineapple express is telling
6:51 pm
you that it is coming up from hawaii and limits the description of these things. this one is not coming from hawaii but coming straight across the pacific in the mid- latitudes and that will change the characteristic of it. it is still in atmospheric river but not a pineapple express. the scientific community has gotten much better at identifying these things and more importantly forecasting in and relating how important they are to the water cycle in california. this will be moderate. don't pay too much attention to the scale, just the top of the black line, that is monday's atmospheric river strength, only moderate, there is a scale on that site that rates these as moderate. this is where the one on monday will be, the one last sunday is all the way up here, extreme to exceptional category, another great way to come up with perspective. this system will have decent rain, it does have an atmospheric river component which is good to recognize but nothing like two weeks ago.
6:52 pm
there is the leading edge of the rain, monday night, starting in the north bay, well organized line of rain, a good sign, you get consistent rain and good totals, maybe half an inch. that is monday night, it stays that way through monday night. tuesday morning, the commute, the best of the rain is over, not lasting all day on tuesday but we will have leftover scattered showers on tuesday. the duration is not as long, that is important, because you do not get pummeled by rain consistently like we did last sunday. but the totals are still okay. if you look at the most recent forecast runs, some overdone, doubtful we will get one inch of rain in san francisco proper but one of the latest forecast models wants to think we will. when you look at the ensembles, altogether, it will be less than that. it will get breezy but not terribly windy. watch the screen light up mainly in the mountains on monday. monday evening, we could have 30 mile an hour gusts amenities where we live.
6:53 pm
the last one was in the 40s. 30 mile per hour gusts can break limbs off of trees and maybe even take a tree down considering how stressed they are from the drought. that will be a concern. tomorrow, the forecast is sunny, watch the clouds clear out. the lows tomorrow morning, cool, 37 in the north bay, mid- 40s for most of the rest of our communities, low to mid-60s later on, even though it is sunny tomorrow, it looks more pretty than today but not warmer. only in the low to mid-60s for daytime highs. there is the rain, second half of the day on monday and mostly tuesday morning, then nothing else after that. but a warm-up. some warmer inland spots like san jose in the low-70s. we see the same story as well in the microclimate
