5:11 pm
going remain dry. that's the way it's going to stay in the first part of the weekend. and then you can see just off the coastline that saturday, just before 10 o'clock in the morning. all of a sudden you see the system developing out along the coastline. and what's going to be really interesting about this storm system is the low. this developing on the backside of instead of swinging to the north, like typical with these storms. this was going to come park right off the coastline. so we may get a day, maybe 2, maybe 3 days of some rain around the bay area. so there you go. you can kind of see the swirl. now you see low developing off the coastline of this wiggles in comes this close, the bay area. we get some pretty good rain out of it. it stays off the coastline by 30 miles or so. and guess what? we don't get a whole lot. so watch that closely. right now. looks like that's going to happen. maybe he showers. maybe some thunderstorms into monday as well. maybe a lingering shower on tuesday of this. all works out. we may even get a little snow over the high sierra nevada so that we need to see. but still a little ways on the forecast we're tracking here. models are starting to come together feel better. you say we get a little bit closer. know i keep talking to guys about what the state we get a little bit closer. the storm

5:14 pm
5:15 pm
5:16 pm
average 30 year rate to buy a home was 2.8, 6%. and those were definitely the good old days because that rate has more than doubled to just over 6%. >> pricing some people out of the market to significant change in tonight. kron four's dan kerman looks at how long this might last and the impact it's having. well, the cost of that new home you want to buy maybe down somewhat from earlier in the year. that's being offset by a spike in mortgage rates. the 30 year fixed rate climbing above 6% this week. more than double where it was a year ago and the highest it's been since 2008. this will impact for sent home entry level buyers. yes, because a significant amount of money to the monthly payment realtor dan mcclain with coldwell banker says this ever-increasing hike in mortgage rates is just one change. the housing market is seen over the last several
5:17 pm
months. the competitiveness is gone. there's not these 10, 15 offers on a house we're seeing maybe one or 2 at 3 are for the most last can competition, less craziness last way over bidding pages are pricing homes better at more, like transparent pricing. experts say mortgage rates are rising because the u.s. still doesn't have a handle on inflation. the fed has been raising interest rates in hopes that will squeeze demand and lead to lower consumer prices. but so far that hasn't happened to my advice is to be patient. and we're not patient. we are absolutely not patient. we want to fix today. george machete is a family wealth advisor with morgan stanley. he says economic recovery will happen, but mortgage rates may not start moving down until the first or 2nd quarter of next year. until that time. he says it's critical. families don't overextend themselves, but the house they can't afford. a financial advisor

5:19 pm
more cents on average in san jose. all right. back to our. >> big story, one of our big stories, the weather as we had just a gorgeous day here in the bay area member last week. well, yes, oppressively hot. well, just been picture perfect the past couple days here in the bay. >> our first chief meteorologist lawrence karnow has been looking down the line and is promising yet another change in the weather. yeah, we hope this all comes together. of course, we had like grant mention that incredible heat wave. so we've had a long hot summer. you get incredible heat wave. and of course, we moved in that critical fire season in the bay area. so that's always a little bit scary. but if we could get a rain like this and it looks impressive right now that may go a long way to putting a delay on the fire season. but you can see out there right now and tore half moon bay. some people out about some patchy fog along the coastline. temperatures 70 degrees in livermore, 71 in san jose. 67 degrees in

5:21 pm
amounts over the coastal ranges. but if we get a rain like this, this is really going to dampen the fire danger around the bay area and not only here but really around the state. guys. that's the latest. back to you. let's hope so. thank you, lawrence. meanwhile, police in los angeles are still working to try to track down the person responsible for. >>pkilling rapper pnb rock. but they're hopeful the musicians distinctive diamond-encrusted chain might help. tonight, authorities are telling shops to be on the lookout for the custom jewelry stolen from the 30 year-old authorities believe the person responsible for the rapper's death may try to profit from the custom chain. seen here. the rapper was wearing it when he was shot and killed shops are required by law to report items they believe were stolen. and an online database allows police to cross reference the items pnb rock was shot and killed at roscoe's chicken and waffles in south la on monday. coming up, the november midterms are now right around the corner.
