yet kron four's, chief meteorologist lawrence karnow joins us with the lock that cold front coming through today, guys. we saw those clouds up above. >> unfortunately kind of just fall apart as a went to the bay area. still some of those clouds out there and we may see the couple of sprinkles. nothing. just checking some of the rain gauges around the bay area. and that just not much energy with this system as it's coming on through partly cloudy skies around the bay area there. some patchy fog along the coastline. kind of interesting little the moisture streaming on shore today. the clouds moving by. that's all part of that cold front. >> just not much to it as it moved on by. so yeah, not a threat to bring in much in the way of significant rainfall. but you may have been lucky to see couple sprinkles in parts of the north bay as a system kind of slipped through and still some remnants of that moisture moving on by. but we're just not generating enough instability to really get the rain going not just yet anyway, but it's still early. we are seeing some winds, though. i've been kind of blustery at times some gusts over 30 miles an hour in the san francisco of this latest hour to 2717 in fairfield and 25 in byron. so
i'm not only that cooler temperatures out there as well. that nice see breeze kicking in bringing in a nice cool marine air. well inland, so 50's and low 60's all around the bay area. but a cold front sliding on by this area of low pressure dragging this out. that's going to kind of split off from that main system. now that's going help the stream up a lot of the clouds into the bay area and eventually this low is actually approach as we get into friday that may be just enough to trigger a couple of scattered light showers at least parts of the south bay into the monterey bay. still a long ways to go right here. you can see the moisture out there continue to move overhead tonight and tomorrow. expect a lot of clouds in our skies and on friday, the low flying, the comes kicking a little bit closer there you can see a couple of scattered showers being picked up by the model there. we get any. it's not going to be much certainly not a drop a stir. but if we get some rain going here that be nice to see. unfortunately you have to wait a while for bigger storm. it be nice if they did hit the ground. yeah. it's a nice we don't know where bridge before it gets to the surface. but that's all we're getting today. okay. thanks, laura. ok. turning now to it covid coverage. the

officers examining what it will take to drop that mandate in other bay area counties. i think for now they should keep the mask mandate. anyone can be contagious vaccinated or not so. until it's over and over in san francisco, which is highly vaccinated. many prefer to keep the indoor mask mandate in place. >> it doesn't make sense to me. it's like why don't we just wait to be really have the science. we can really back it up in late october of last year we saw the beginning of a big surge in covid cases that coupled with the delta variant has medical experts advising caution when it comes to dropping the mandate. i mean, obviously we all want to really quickly. we want to make this done with. >> this may not be the right time. doctor george rutherford is a professor of epidemiology at ucsf while admits the bay area is doing better than most. he says this is not the time to move too fast. but 6 and a half million people in the bay area. if 90% of actually that's still 655,000 people that are vaccinated.
