6:15 am
by the time we have gotten ahead to noon. while it's foggier to start the day today, than yesterday was, when we clear this out, we are going to get more sunshine in the afternoon today than we did yesterday. you will see more blue sky and temperatures will be warmer today. as a result of that and a few clouds will come in for the overnight hours. taking us into tomorrow. morning lows or actually daytime highs for sunday, they go look that. mid to upper 60s. 70 santa rosa. that's the two warm spots. mid-60s about everywhere else. and 66 for livermore today. let's see where the rain is. you can see pretty active storms well out here in the central pacific. the futurecast will bring would be system through on monday. we done get rain from it. but the fact that system was able to breakthrough the ridge of high pressure overhead, and at least bring in fresher air tells us the air quality is
6:16 am
going to improve by the second half of monday. thanks to that system. this will begin breaking down the ridge and allow the next system here we will watch the monday system disappear, and we will let the thursday one fill in the map. that's the next one. and that one will hold together, to give us at least some rain. not a lot, but we will get a few lie showers on thursday and you will see that in the 7-day forecast. there could be others after that for next week. and just to look at accumulated rainfall totals on thursday. it has gone back and forth sometimes as much as .2 of an inch of rain anow it look like it will be less than that. for right now, taking a look ahead here, to thursday, high enough degree of confidence will keep that chance of rain in this. beyond that, it gets cooler. that's the most notable thing about the shift in the weather is, whatever that system on
6:17 am
thursday brings us, light rainfall wise, it is certainly going to bring in noticeably cooler air, and we will get the daytime highs

6:44 am
squished and everything in heavy gray ash about 900 people have been safely evacuated. okay. sunday morning is starting out foggier than saturday was. and i say that because good chance if you are up with us on sunday morning, you are an early reiser on weekends in general. if you hit the roads, expect it to be foggier than yesterday. in particular spots, let's show you where the trouble spots will be, it looks cloudy in the city, but we are not experiencing fog on the road in the city. with the temperatures in the mid-50s, if you got a 50 for a temperature reading, chances are you don't have an issue with fog. it's the mid-40s where you did and let me show you what that looks like on visibility map. you can see that pattern holds true. it's gotten cold enough, and certainly in livermore. and .05 tells you you can see half a mile down the road. similar story here as we get up to concord. and looking at the north bay valleys along 101 and sonoma county. that's where we have gotten some of the esally up around sa
6:45 am
at the airport where it's down to .3 of a mile. there's the overview. the dense fog advisory stays in effect until noon. it cancally, that only encompasses solano county. we know it is foggy in other places. you can see it filling in the valleys up into napa north bay and east bay and it mounts back today more effectively than yesterday. in other words, while it's foggier now, once this burns back by about noon today, we will all get more sunshine today for the afternoon. than we had yesterday. so, it's sunnier day and slightly warmer afternoon. as a result of that. so we will see temperatures that climb in some places all the way back up to 70 like up in santa rosa today. eat hit 68 in san jose and mid- 60s for concord and livermore. 65 today in oakland. what about the rain? well, there are a lot of good storms out in the pacific right now. and there's still pretty much
6:46 am
going a long way around like that one up and over. but, it does break through the ridge on monday. with enough force that even though we don't get rain on monday, tomorrow, we should start to clear the air out because we wil hiessu and in addition to clearing out the air a bit on monday, more importantly that will on the door for the next system than on thursday to actually hold together right there possibility for some light rain first half of the day on thursday. not big totals. we are talking about .10 of an inch of rain or less. so the rain is not the headline. the change in the overall pattern is the headline because we are going to get much cooler when that happens. we are going to clear out the air first, or start the process early in the week. breaking down the ridge of high pressure. and that's the first step. monday's improvement of air quality. and a small chance of rain on
6:47 am
thursday, and most significant impact and noticeable impact is the cooler temperatures. not getting out mid-50s for daytime highs. by the time we get to friday and saturday, we can see the same story for the microclimates. look at north bay valleys. 65 today, and friday and saturday, 10 degrees cooler. noticeably colder by the end of the week. and into next weekend. >> you said that storm that comes in on thursday brings modest rain. what about snow out towards tahoe? >> it will be and this is not saying much but it's a better snow maker because the aim is wouldn't inside sliders which means it goes inside and dive over us and slide on the inside of the state more on the border with nevada. those turned to produce more snow than rain and it's not block buster snowstorm. but it will be more snow than it will be rain here maybe a couple inches perhaps up at some of the passes. >> absolutely we will take it. thank you. the holiday season can be
