11:17 pm
liz, i want to show the current temperatures here at home. and this is i think one of the benefits of this system. right now, we are in the low to mid 50s . we were down into the mid 20s for morning lows over the weekend. sunday morning. we are not going to be anywhere near that for the rest of the week. and, this pattern is a big help in that. we leave behind the current numbers. not a whole lot. we will keep it in the 40s just about everywhere. the matter at hand is the rain. it looks the way it did four hours ago. on the 7:00 newscast. it will look similar. you should plan on the light rain sneaking around until we have gotten into late morning tomorrow. it is not until after 10:00
11:18 pm
tomorrow morning that we finally start to turn off the last of these light little misting showers. and we don't put a whole lot more in the rain gauge. i think we will get a couple more than few hundredths of an inch of rain. it is steadily misting. and, adds up over time. so, far, you know, i showed you the numbers at the top of the newscast. most of the communities we live in, barely gotten anything. not getting over the hill. it has been breezy. watch how fast that turns off. that is tomorrow morning at 8:00 a.m. morning lows. a lot of 50s on here. there is a 48 for santa rosa. that is where it was 26 for the day before. daytime highs to the low 60s . we will get some breaks of blue sky.
11:19 pm
rain come to an end. clouds don't go away completely. you will get some breaks of blue and it will be prettier and feel nicer because this will be a nice little warmup to go along with this pattern. there is another chance of rain. most of the storms are going too far north. but the next one, in order to follow that, we have to lose a little resolution on it to go to the long range forecast. and that one holds together to get here by friday. we will not get too tied into this notion just yet. right now, should it come together, we could see rainfall totals similar to what we got from today's. so maybe a quarter inch of rain top. you can see how that plays out here. tuesday's rain is only until 10:00 a.m. then, friday, there is that next system. for the weekend, no rain. then monday next week, we do it again. we see the exact same story
