10:36 pm
spots around the bay area. certainly that is some good news. the clouds rolling in across the bay to look at the berkeley hills and out over the bay. you can see some low clouds kind of camping out getting ready to settle in for the night. and you see the fog moving in along the coastline right now on the image here and certainly we're going to see plenty of that with us here that have to even a couple lightning strikes popping up that week system kind of sliding on through temperature wise. we've got in the 40's in the 50's all around the bay area. so kind of a cool night ahead. and little damp in spots, especially approaching the coastline. but this work, it's fun. here's the long-range forecast for late in the season for rain. but we may just have one last nice, little rain event. coming our way. sometimes we get them all the way to maine during an el nino year. sometimes we get them all the way into june 2. but of course, this is one of those years. all right. here we go and put into motion now you see all the nice weather. we're going to have over the next couple days. the storm clouds hold off. i think we will see more clouds coming our way as we head into friday. but then we get into the weekend. we've got this week front coming through the watch right behind it. this is really going to be the key
10:37 pm
with this storm system diving on the backside. really developing into an ice cold front before it comes onshore. usually when they put these in themselves together right along the coast. that's when you see a pretty significant rain. it looks like there will be one of those vents rolling through starting may be late saturday night, early sunday morning the continuing on and off throughout the day. maybe a lingering shower early on monday morning. then we'll dry things out system looks a little more progressive. maybe clipping northern california maybe parts of the north bay by late thursday, but chances are not good for that one. and after that, we kind of clear things out so that being said, tomorrow going to be a dry day except damp along the coastline with some of that drizzle outside your tent certainly looking got an ice storm coming our way as we head in toward the weekend after that a return to some dry weather. so maybe we get a quarter of an inch, maybe a half an inch, maybe more in some parts of the bay area. but as greg mentioned before, it's not going to be enough to end the drought. that's for sure. we'll take every drop we get to get a lot. all right. thank you, lawrence. well, illegal dumping of this is a big problem across a lot of the bay area. but there's a new effort to crack down on
10:38 pm
illegal dumping in the south bay kron four's. rob fladeboe tells us about a proposal to deal with the worsening situation by. >> quadrupling the fine for illegal dumping on the first offense. >> that, know, coach alongside the road in san jose could soon cost more than a new one. the fine for illegal dumping right now is $2500 for a first offense and $5,000 for a second. hoping to convince the city council to increase the fine fourfold to $10,000 for a first offense is san jose city councilman sergio jimenez along with san jose planning commission. vice chair along to media so a $10,000 fine is intended to feel steep. >> because we want you to think twice before coming in our communities illegally dumping, particularly when the city house programs are available to pick up garbage from from your home. there are as many as a 160 illegal dumping hot spots around the city. >> a new reporting app, an illegal dumping patrols. we're making progress before the
