6:46 pm
the bad news is lowe's sold him vinyl frames. kneels the contractors should have known better. >> what will happen with the other windows that are illegal? i didn't want them to come out and red tag my house or make me take out the windows and not have a solution. >> reporter: he asked lowe's to replace them. it didn't so he asked if we could help. he said they took care of the permit but that means they should have been responsible for making sure everything was up to code. we spent months going back and forth with them. ultimately he got $20,000 worth of new, legal windows. >> nbc helped me out a little bit on this situation, a lot a bit. >> reporter: the glass pain didn't end there. >> these little side things that were very sharp are made out of fiberglass were unfinished. >> reporter: we asked lowe's to clear things up again. about six weeks later,
6:47 pm
problemsoevered. we asked what happened. they said because of the time that elapsed, it's unable to share details from the original installation. >> thanks to nbc investigates this would have probably never happened. i would have had to buy some more blood pressure pills. >> one last point, sometimes contractors don't end as well and that's where a contractor bond can help. the state requires contractors to carry a $15,000 bond. potentially $15,000 set aside to protect you if they make any errors or omissions. before you hire a contractor, make sure they are licensed and they have that bond. if you have a consumer complaint for us to investigate, let us snap to the rescue. go to our web section and let us respond. ca . >> i think that gets three snaps. >> i love it.
6:48 pm
>> yeah. just going to leave it there. speaking of windows, he said, imagine looking out your window to see this. the snow. they got five inches of fresh powder overnight. this is piling up. i don't know how many feet, 10, 11. great stuff up there. >> it's 13 feet. the snow numbers are amazing and the temperatures will stay cold enough. you might not have to head up i-80 or highway 50 to find. by christmas day temperatures will be cooling down enough that we could see some snow and the high r peaer peaks around the b area. the snow pack doesn't get much better than this. even higher totals relative to average. south of highway 50 down to the southern sierra and temperatures staying cold enough right there to keep the snow sticking around. right now 32 degrees. snow showers tonight and we will
6:49 pm
see more heading into christmas eve and christmas day. right now san jose, no snow. 50 degrees but without towards mount hamilton towards christmas day you might see chances of snow showers. you're at 53 right now. clear skies not much wind and you can see the bay area is actually one of the quietest spots whether wise around the state. still more rain in central california, snow near grapevine. still taking shape offshore. this will send the clouds our ya during bay. showers to start and rain and the chance of the low snow levels on christmas morning. for tomorrow morning the top concern would be patchy frost around the north bay and east bay valley. you could have patchy frost to start your morning off and probably be able to keep the jacket on all day as highs will only be in the mid-40s around clear lake and most of the bay area tomorrow. highs in the low 50s to get the chilly start and increase in clouds blocking out the sun will
6:50 pm
likely make for a pretty chilly christmas eve day. in terms of the showers not much to start. the showers chances increase during the afternoon but the out right rain and heavier showers will come in right around midnight to 1:00 a.m. through about 7:00 or 8:00. 5:00 a.m. still pockets of heavier showers. might have small hail with the stronger showers. eventually decreasing in coverage and intensity but again what does fall, if it's not rain, elevation closer to snow level could be snow. most of the bay area probably seeing a quarter inch, maybe a half inch or a bit more around the peaks around the santa cruz mountains. interesting when you look at what type of precipitation we could see. closer to mount saint helena. a decent chance of some christmas day snow showers about 3500 feet.
6:51 pm
that's more snow. notice the totals. not that much. this incoming storm will drop down to coast. it's very likely the rain or snow totals will be on the coastal mountain range. notice southern california dealing with rain and snow near the grapevine. friday and saturday if you want dry weather these look to be the best days. by sunday look at another chance of seeing rain around the bay area as we also keep in mind the same storm up in seattle. the 49ers on the road taking on the seattle seahawks on nbc bay area. the same storm giving it right here. rain and wind in pacific northwest through sunday. keeping both christmas and sunday night football covered in the forecast. pretty interesting. don't get the timing to work out. we have chance of higher mountain snow around the bay area but the timing looks good for that. going to get the dry break and see more showers into the
6:52 pm
weekend. >> thanks very much. 49ers and the seahawks getting ready for the massive showdown on sunday. an old friend could be returning to seattle. [ electrical buzzing ] [ dramatic music ] ahhhh! -ahhhh! elliott. you came back!
