unfortunately, though, our chief meteorologist lawrence karnow says there is no rain or snow in the forecast. yeah, it's just a tremendous season member. we have that atmospheric river way back in october. we have as much as 9 inches of rain in san francisco. >> then we dry out after to see that incredible december again. and that's when some of the snow mount starting out the beginning, december there in the 10 to 14% rain by the time. and the end of december, we're looking at 200% of normal. and now we dried out again. and so now we watch those numbers fall back quite a bit. now, 90% of normal in the northern sierra nevada. as far as snowfall is concerned, 90% of normal also in the central and 95% of normal. now in the southern sierra nevada. but unfortunately, we just are not generating any storms. and this has been the case since that last week, the end of last week in january. that's last time we had any measurable rain in the bay area. well, things have changed quite a bit. you can see that ridge has become what looks like almost a semi permanent feature for the
season so far, at least the first the year and that ridge continues. and so you see storms roll over the top of that ridge. we're going to see one roller for tomorrow. and so the winds are going to pick up and be blustery outside as we get thursday. we're going to see few more clouds coming our way as a weak system slides through only to watch that ridge building again. and there you go. we get through sunday to see that next front kind of dives through, unfortunately getting just chewed up by that ridge of high pressure. leave behind lots of sunshine, but no rain drops. and then we get into the following week. there we go. the following monday. still yet another system comes by runs up to 7 northwest were left high and dry as the jet stream is too far to the north. until that just are really takes a nosedive. we're going to keep things dry. not this week ahead, but in the next week and probably the following weekend, maybe the middle of february is looking some long range models and some are starting to maybe pain to something around the 16th of the month has a long way to go between now and then. so high pressure sitting over head now. and that really
is the dominant feature here. and it has meant for quite some tile. these storms as they roll through, they'll start to generate some wind as high pressure starts to build in behind those systems that dropped by. that's where we're getting the win. we're going to see those windy conditions again overnight tonight. so it's going to be blustery. we're already seeing some of those winds picking up now, pretty down below with some occasional gusts of 25, maybe some 30 mile an hour gust of the mountain tops. that's we're going to see all that gusty winds as high as 70 mile an hour gust temperatures today, mainly in the 60's. i think we're back there again tomorrow afternoon. but it's going to be cold. start to the day. remember this air coming in is very dry. so temperatures down near freezing overnight tonight by the afternoon. tomorrow we're up in the 50's and the 60's. thank you. new at 9 tonight. we continue our in-depth weeklong look at the lasting effects of the dixie and the counter or wildfires. and the lessons learned for this year. >> despite losing their downtown 6 months ago, people living in greenville say it still feels like home. dennis shanahan shows us what is
