5:18 pm
and you see how this is developed. that gets us into the late morning or early afternoon. by this point we see the first round of showers getting here. this is pretty much the whole second half of the day on sunday. here's a closer look, and you can see both the lines coming through on sunday. here's the first one, here's the second one. by monday in the afternoon we're done. so how much rain do we get? about a quarter inch, maybe a half inch on the high side of the forecast possibility. but really it's about a quarter inch of rain. the one thing to remember is when the organized lines come through, and we just saw there's going to be at this point the forecast models are showing 2, it will likely play out similar tot. tso ofmeline can come through as an isolated thunderstorm, so that could make things a bit more interesting with this on sunday. and if you're wondering about snow in the sierra, this could give us a little more. not a major snow maker.
5:19 pm
but it's relatively cold, so perhaps 4500 feet for the snow level. but it's not a major dumping of snow up there. and for the rest of the seven-day, this sunday storm is the headline. there's really not a lot else going on here. we clear things out into next week, so daytime highs will hit 60 by the middle of next week. and there's the new year's day forecast on wednesday. a few clouds and mid to upper 50s. more on this in the next half hour. w year looking good. all right, times square counting down to the party of the year, but it's no party for police. what it takes to protect a iooppen le .
