the holiday travel rush comes to a crawl. the rain and snow sweeping through the midwest today is expected to hit the east coast tomorrow to help ease the chaos. airlines are offering wavers to customer cans change their flights without spending extra money. jet blue, american, united, and delta. in squaw valley, there was plenty of fresh snow. the storm moving into northern california is sure to bring a lot more. the weekend at squaw valley has several lifts open. and meteorologist darren peck is tracking conditions into the week. >> this is a very good time to look at high-def doppler. we are seeing the more impressive bands of rain into the north bay. i want to get straight to that. look for the bright orange and yellow across the screen. if you come in for a closer look, we can show you the places experiencing the best rain. the last three hours shows you the waves coming on shore from the southwest.
6:49 pm
i want to come down to the highway 101 corridor. you can see the city grid there, yellow tells you it is moderate rain. orange tells you it is heavy rain. if it turns red, it is a downpour, so, we noticed the up tick of the rain here, let's follow 101 down to windsor. red, a nice little downpour through the center of town. if you hear heelsburg and windsor, the last time these two communities were making headlines in the news is because the kincade fire was burning in the hills above them. if we leek up slope, we are seeing a lot of yellow an orange on the burn scar of the kincade fire. this is it here. so, if there is a concern for the flash flood watch in this area, that's it. and the question is, how long does the heavy rain stay focused up here? we will take a look at that in a second. because that is probably for the meantime anyway, priority concern number one is what's the runoff going to look like from the kincade fire? meanwhile, santa rosa, good rain coming down for you.
6:50 pm
101 south, we get toward rohnert park. petaluma, that band is fairly stationary right up there. so let's switch from high-def doppler. put it into the futurecast. which does a really good job of picking up where the heavier band is now. that is really a good sign if you will use this as a forecast model. garbage in, garbage out. if it was wrong, we wouldn't want to trust this too much. but it is right on the mark. once we get to 9:00 p.m., we are still seeing that heavy band that is coming into the north bay. only it is shifted to the south. it is pretty much right over the major population centers of the bay. that's why keeping with the forecast, it's the evening tonight. it is a snapshot of wind and how that will look. once we have gotten to 2:00 a.m., it's still raining but we are seeing the worst ofthe rain shift to the south. let's get us through saturday
6:51 pm
night. and, by the time we have gotten tomorrow, we have taken the heaviest rain off of that burn scar for the kincade fire. the question is how much do we get the next few hours? if you are immediately down slope and know the drainages, the next six hours, you should pay close attention to what streams are doing and any drainages that could be an issue there. here's the big picture of the storm. looking a it, pulling back a little bit will give us some much needed perspective. tonight. it is just widespread rain. by tomorrow, there's a pattern. that gets us into sunday morning. early. 3:00 a.m. that's where the fire hose is. to our south: yeah, we still have rain up here. we are getting good rain in the bay area. but most of it is going to big sur. from monterrey to the south. we are not getting the brunt of the storm. that's the atmospheric river and the focus is down toward monterrey and the coastline of
6:52 pm
big sur throughout the day sunday. we will still get rain. you can still see, we will have showers. i played us all the way into monday and we still have rain and scattered showers in the forecast. we are not out of this one until probably wednesday. the most impressive time is tonight. when we are seeing some of the steadier waves wash overhead. if we look at the rainfall totals for the weekend, this just takes saturday and sunday into account. on the low side, there is san jose, less than an inch. on the high side, santa rosa with half an inch, maybe more. if we look at more of the specific numbers there, we are not all at san jose's number in the south bay. near sixer inches in the santa cruz mountains. we will pick up close to two inches of rain in redwood city. you can see a few more details there in the north and-a-half inches for novato. by the way, wind advisory until 3:00 monday. and as you take a look at the coast, it's a wind wargus to near 60 miles an hour out here. it is a winter storm warning in
6:53 pm
the sierra until 6:00 p.m. on monday. up the two feet of snow at donner pass. the next storm is friday. good news is for wednesday and thursday, we get a break. and then, friday into saturday, it starts raining again. more on that as we get closer to it. the van gogh.

clip, i am doing all right. >> reporter: he epitomizes swagger and why not? he is setting the program record for a single season. >> 167. >> that was set by. >> hardy nickerson. >> is that a goal of yours? >> yeah. i want to break that. but i want to smash it though. >> he doesn't look for confidence. he's a guy that really sees himself being an elite football player. >> reporter: elite was never the word they used when he was deciding on colleges four years ago. most in the northwest figured he would stay in the northwest. >> no one really respects football up there. being able to play my brand, and, still be able to play it in college now is something that carried along with me. >> what is your brand? >> physical, mean, and tough. >> reporter: and that brand rubbed off in berkeley. cal was home to one of the

worst head coaches. has been a staggering turn around since. >> he does a great job being an eraser. you draw things up. you anticipate things happening. when it doesn't happen as planned, he still finds a way to erase things. >> reporter: and credit the cal coaching staff. for tapping waivers full potential. shifting him from defensive end to linebacker helped produce the eye popping 20 tackle games which some have suggested is the product of cal's system. it is certainly not weaver's favorite topic. >> i hate it when people say that. it is a bunch of bs because we are out there, we are playing. you can throw anybody else in here and let's say you get 20 tackles a game. it's not going to happen. >> reporter: his intensity is a product of his nay sayers. in fact, he has a running log of all the shots ever taken at him and it is in an unusual place. >> i have a rock i write on.
6:58 pm
it's getting full. it is about this big. and, i just kind of write down stupid stuff that people like to say and cross them off when i prove them wrong. >> reporter: these days, weaver is no longer between his rock and a hard place. he is expected to become cal's first all american player since 2006. and he has become an influencer of sorts of social media. tweeting that he would tackle students that didn't show up to games. >> i'm not making good on that. i'm not really sure if the berkeley police department would be too happy with that one. >> that's what i'm talking about. that's what i'm talking about. >> so he writes down all the bad things people say about him on a rock? >> and then he crosses it off. >> i would need a county.
