let's take a look at other areas. you have to go to 1900 feet in the east bay hills for 200. sfo about 100. the radar is out there. it is showing us some scattered showers. not picking up all of them. this is a very low level event. i'm looking to the east, and i can't even see berkeley from here which i can usually see. i can't see hayward either so i know some rain is falling in those areas even though it may not be showing up. here's the cold front. notice energy well to the north. this area of low pressure that you see to the west of the front will hook up with it and keep the chance of scattered light showers in the forecast. most of those should be fading by 5:00. less than a tenth of an inch except the higher elevations where we could get a quarter of an inch. if you have evening plans, don't worry about the wet weather but you'll want to dress for temperature that will rapidly fall into the 50s this evening.
11:02 am
>> this is what the weather looks like at the san francisco international airport. flights are being delayed 30 to 60 minutes at this point. let's have a look. >> there is enough rain in enough areas to make driving a little bit tricky as i found out myself when i was merging on to interstate 80. be especially careful. a look at san francisco. the rain came down and made things look a little bit wet. the sidewalks. folks to have use the wipers on the intermittent setting. even with the dark, because of the cloud cover. no major problems there so far at the golden gate bridge. there was enough rain to interfere with the camera a bit. we haven't heard of any major problems there as well. and believe it or not, the rain was a surprise to some.
11:03 am
>> it caught me by surprise. it was pretty warm and i saw people with shorts and i got here and it was rain. >> i like the water, the water parks and all the good things that we can enjoy when we're not in a drought. i hope the rain picks up. >> this is one of those rain systems that just teases us. it is enough to be a bit problematic. you might want to take your umbrella. there will still be scattered showers in the area as mike said. and you will want to stay tuned for abc7 news for the latest on the rain system with mike in the evening. so i'll send it back to you. >> thank you so much. you can track the weather where you live and live doppler 7 hd any time with the abc 7 weather app.

11:07 am
able to offer much in the way of relief. >> it is just vandalism. you can make a report and call your insurance company but there is nothing really else they can do. >> reporter: a call for repairs to the business owners. the neighborhood has been a target of vandals before. they were among the stores hit in august. the assault on the baskin robins was reported by the owner. just before 2:00 a.m., something hit his glass door and it shattered. aly more than two minutes later, a second hit and another glass victim. he believes the vandals used some type of bb gun or paint gun to fire it. back at the salon, she wants her customers to know, this setback has not shut her down and she is still open for business as usual on tuesday. >> today we'll deal with trying to get some new glass and new signage. >> reporter: with the depleted police force and low resources, san jose police tell me that property crime is not high on their priority list.

finding our best radar returns. as we look at sfo, our arrival delays are down to 36 minutes but they'll continue for the better part of the next six hours. right now you can see they're actually dropping some rain on the san mateo bridge. expect it to be a little slick over the next hour or two. as the rain falls there and it lets up. the temperatures are running in the 60s. a little warm around livermore, los gatos to mountain view where we're seeing more sunshine. upper 60s for you. one of those areas that receives some of the greater amounts of rain. it sticks up around 2,600 feet. partly sunny today. some light showers with that front. clearing and exceptionally cooler. 20 degrees. the unsettled pattern, thursday, friday and saturday. the highs today will be in the low 70s. inland east bay. everybody else in the murm 60s. low to mid 60s at the coast. as far as tonight, look at the

upper 40s. palo alto, redwood city, the rest of us in the low to mid 50s after being in the 60s this morning. here's the cold front. there is one little area of low pressure that will head to the north. that's where the best channel of any scattered showers will develop behind the front. i think once the front moves through, you can see by 5:00, we're finished. we clear out overnight and you can see why we'll get cooler with the lack of cloud cover. there will be some patchy fog. the rainfall amounts, most of us, less than a tenth of an inch. you can see it into the santa clara valley. that means when the winds hit the mountains on the coastal side, it lifts, squeezes the moisture out and then the air descends into the valleys. and it dries out. a nice day in kansas city tomorrow. crisp fall air without the humidity. it will drop to the mid 50s by the edge of the game. we'll warm up for a couple days. tuesday and wednesday without rain and then showers on

it's about getting to the finish line. in life, it's how you get there that matters most. like when i found out i had a blood clot in my leg. my doctor said that it could travel to my lungs and become an even bigger problem. so he talked to me about xarelto®. >>xarelto® is the first oral prescription blood thinner proven to treat and help prevent dvt and pe that doesn't require regular blood monitoring or changes to your diet. for a prior dvt i took warfarin, which required routine blood testing and dietary restrictions.
11:29 am
not this time. while i was taking xarelto®, i still had to stop racing, but i didn't have to deal with that blood monitoring routine. >>don't stop taking xarelto®, rivaroxaban, unless your doctor tells you to. while taking xarelto®, you may bruise more easily and it may take longer for bleeding to stop. xarelto® may increase your risk of bleeding if you take certain medicines. xarelto® can cause serious bleeding, and in rare cases, may be fatal. get help right away if you develop unexpected bleeding, unusual bruising, or tingling. if you have had spinal anesthesia while on xarelto®, watch for back pain or any nerve or muscle related signs or symptoms. do not take xarelto® if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. tell your doctor before all planned medical or dental procedures. before starting xarelto®, tell your doctor about any conditions such as kidney, liver, or bleeding problems. xarelto® is proven to reduce the risk of dvt and pe, with no regular blood monitoring and no known dietary restrictions. treatment with xarelto® was the right move for me. ask your doctor about xarelto® today.
