>> we've learned a lot from historical ecology about how to design natural flood protection so we are working in sync with the river. >> reporter: steve paulson, ktvu fox 2 news. >> napa did pick up heavy rain today. right now, the focus in the southern half of the bay area. live storm tracker two, we started out with sunshine into the clouds, then the rain really picked up, right now as you can see, the focus has been lingering in the southern half of the bay area towards san jose, morgan hill and gilroy. northbay, overall decrease in the coverage out there, lingering activity towards parts of the east bay for concord and san ramon but the intensity backed off a little bit over the past hour. so out towards san mateo, not as much coverage, closer to fremont, lingering wet roadways out toward fremont boulevard, pushing the map to the south as we mentioned, sunnyvale, san jose, also morgan hill and

so our forecast model tomorrow, we can't go completely dry, still got clouds out there, scattered showers rotating through the bay area, 2:00 tomorrow afternoon, tomorrow night, we talked about somewhat of a break and then by friday, the main area picking up rainfall will be in the northbay, this front begins to taper off or fake out by the south bay, by the time it reaches the south bay later in the day. we'll keep an eye on that one. temperatures tomorrow in the 50s to the lower 60s, son cloud mix and possibility of showers, after friday, it will be dry this weekend, warmer for next week. so today, a big change out there, still have some downpours for tomorrow as well. >> we needed the rain and good that it's going to be dry for the weekend. thank you.
