6:15 pm
extending, which has really got it in for the santa cruz mountains now. there are flood watches from santa cruz through monterey. very steady rain. that is just clipping the santa clara valley. if anything, we will come back in and watch a few billing showers through the heart of the bay. back to the wide view, look what is out here. all of those scattered showers, that is the way it goes for the next 18 hours or so, before the next system gets here. we will see spotty showers like that. futurecast picks up on them and shows you how they keep coming onshore. it will quiet down a little bit for the first part of tomorrow. there are a few less of them after sunrise, but then in the afternoon for the next system comes in and they come back. it is going to rain again, not like this morning. this morning was more impressive with the cold front,
6:16 pm
but tomorrow night and into monday, more widespread showers. we will take it one day at a time on the rainfall. here is sunday's rain. not as much as the numbers for today, but we get rained on on sunday. it will stay like this. you will get more breaks tomorrow. morning lows tomorrow aren't all that bad, low to mid 40s. it is tuesday when the real cold stuff sets in. daytime highs tomorrow only come up to right around 50. the snow will keep piling on. we make it breaks in the rain down here, but the snow never stops in this era. it falls for the next few days. the mountains are good about being persistent that way. there is a winter storm warning there until tuesday morning. look at the local mountings with the winter storm watch, because it gets so cold over the next few mornings. this goes through monday morning.
6:17 pm
it will probably be extended through tuesday. look at the snow, mendocino county, lake county. clear lake could see some snow. certainly on this mountains. what's going on with the weather pattern? in the pacific, there is a big area of nothing. here we are. here is the storm track going all the way up and over a big block in the atmosphere. for the past few winters, that big block was just a little farther to the east, and we went into a drought. thankfully right now, that has just moved a little farther west, which means what goes up must come down. this is all luck of the location . we are now on the leading edge where all of the stores are arriving back down, and they keep getting pulled at us. not only that, with the precipitation and moisture they have, but also pulling all of the cold air down with it. this pattern is locked and will stay that way through
6:18 pm
wednesday. we can watch the precipitation add up. we finally get a break by the time we get into thursday. look at the morning lows, north bay valles, 29. east bay valles on tuesday, 33. back into the bay, you will get down into the mid to upper 30s. it will be called. there is the 7 day forecast. we finally get a break in the rain by the time make it into thursday. take my advice, throw another log on the fire. we have programming to promote, and moving pictures ahead. if the warriors are going to fly out to the desert for a christmas day game, may as well win the thing
