and we're still seeing clouds, especially in the north bay, but it's clearing out for the south bay. check out san raphael. we head over toward sunol where the clouds are parting. notice that the grass is now green and we are seeing those green hills in the distance. so as you get ready to head out once again, we are going to see some of those temperatures that will be in the upper 50s and low 60s. a mix of sun and clouds. the storm ranger and mobile doppler radar taking a rest from tracking all of that rain that we had. we had a warm front that kind of lifted to the north, so we're still seeing a steady stream of clouds across the region. this is the center of the next storm system that will be here late on saturday due to it slowing down just a little bit. so that's good for those outdoor activities we're planning for the weekend as we take it hour
by hour. all of the clouds here shown on what it can look like as far as we head into the weekend. but then we start to see some green here and so that could show some rain moving in by late saturday night into sunday, and then it quickly clears out by sunday evening. but there still may be some lingering showers throughout the day on monday. we're going to see this in and out of here for parts of the weekend, but that could impact your sunday plans. and as the rain falls, we're looking at about a tenth to a quarter inch of rain, the farther north you go, the higher the rainfall totals are looking. san francisco is closer to a half inch of rain. going into the sierra this weekend, it looks so beautiful tlchlt that's a live view at our heavenly camera at lake tahoe. it's clearing out over the lake and we're seeing a lot more people getting out there. temperatures are a little bit warmer. lake level temperatures at about
41 degrees. so we've seen a lot of the precipitation lately fall as rain and it will change over to some light snow by the weekend. we're going to see 1 to 4 inches of snow across the greater tahoe area. going into next week, a couple of more storms moving in just in time for christmas that could bring significant snow. and we've been closely watching this forecast because we have our 49ers versus the rams at home and it's going to be close in terms of the timing with the storm system moving in. but we are going to keep a slight chance of rain in the fourth quarter forecast, but it looks like for most of the game it does look pretty good and we should start to see a few more clouds moving in. it's going to be cool either way. and going through the rest of the forecast, we keep it unsettled going into christmas eve and christmas day. the next storm system coming in will also bring in some cooler temperatures, so we'll see how that goes in terms of sierra
snow as well as some snow on some of those bay area peaks. we'll be watching out for that on christmas day. >> coming up, this delivery driver doing quite the happy dance. we'll show you what one person left outside that has time dancing with joy. but first, facebook is headed to the super bowl for the first time. the social media giant has purchased air time to run a commercial during the big game this year. it's all part of the company's more together campaign. this is aimed at promoting its facebook group feature. comedian chris rock and actor sylvester sta lone are set to star in the commercial. they're under a microscope from regulators for anti-trust and scrutiny for repeat privacy breaches. more news for you after the break.
