>> i didn't see it. all right darren, fill us in. >> yes, i'm in the mood to talk about a white christmas. there's a chance for that in the sierra, and even a chance locally for some of the highest peaks around the bay area. mt. hamilton. could see a light dusting of snow happening in the morning on christmas day. it's not like we wake up to it, but it could fall through the first half of the day. first where it's snowing. we go up into the sierra and a popular destination for people to get up to this time of year, and look what's happening in lake tahoe right now. the high def doppler is reading the showers over south lake tahoe. the green shows it raining at lake level, which is right about 6200 feet. and as soon as you get up a little above that, it turns to snow. it's kind of an ideal situation up there. you don't have to deal with a lot of snow perhaps on the roadway, but you get snow on the slopes. and looking at what happens over the rest of tonight, if you're going to be driving up there, there's enough snow the remainder of this evening that there's a winter weather advisory in the sierra until
5:46 pm
10:00 tonight. 1 to 3 inches falling on the passes. let's come back home and talk about the chance of rain here at home for christmas. i'll time it out and stop it here tomorrow afternoon at 4:00 and that's when we see a few isolated showers in the south bay. this is not going to be a major rain event for the bay area on christmas eve or christmas day for that matter. it just looks a lot better on christmas day. let's get out of the way. that line of rain, we stop it there. that's 1:00 a.m. on christmas morning, and that's when we'll be getting rained on. perhaps enough that maybe the drops wake you up. and by the time we get towards the late morning it starts to clear out. certainly by the time we've gotten to the afternoon we'll be finished with it. but you've got to at least plan for some rain to be with us through the first part of the day on wednesday. we pick up from a quarter to half inch of rain scattered across much of the bay area. and this image is the interesting one i pointed out just a few moments ago.
5:47 pm
we just looked at wednesday morning. we could see a little less than an inch of snow on mount hamilton. people love to go up there when light snow falls. that could be a scenario on christmas day. that's something to watch. but here's the take away for the rest of us. showers, the first half of the day. just enough for things to be a bit soggy. let's talk about christmas eve day and daytime highs. it will be cool with temperatures only making it into the mid-50s here. that actually comes in a few degrees below average, and these numbers probably feel cooler than normal because we were so warm for awhile there. now we're getting back down to average just in time for
5:48 pm
christmas. and look at the numbers in lake county. upper 40s. all right, the seven-day forecast, you only see 2 rain chances. we talked about christmas. those are the showers for the first half of the day, and then we clear things out, so any travel that has to happen for thursday, friday, saturday, is a go. no issues. the next storm arrives sunday. the possibility for more widespread rain to come back on sunday. all right, guys, back over to you. coming up, the chp is cracking down on drunk and distracted driving on christmas eve and christmas day. we'll tell you where they're focusing their efforts.

5:58 pm
their part. >> the majority of time it's somebody that's made a decision to either drive while distracted, drive in excess of, you know, a safe speed. >> reporter: and this is often the tragic, if predictable result. crashes and overturned cars are a perennial problem. especially on highway 17 in the santa cruz mountains which can be treacherous in wet weather. >> i think it's extremely important to slow down, especially during this time of year when everyone seems to be in a really big hurry to get to the next place. >> reporter: officers will be looking for drivers who may have been drinking or distracted by cell phones or other devices or speeding or tailgating. >> the number one goal is everyone leaves home, getting to their destination safely, and back home safely. >> reporter: the good news, the chp says we're in the driver's seat, largely in control of the divisions that help us steer clear of the pitfalls of holiday traffic. >> maybe leave earlier and send
