12:08 pm
increase, it's going to go towards all things that make alternative forms of transportation more accessible and that are -- it's going to make them happen which is going to help everyone. the toll authority spokesman says under this proposal, there would be a discount for drivers who have to cross two bridges. they would pay half price to cross the second bridge in a single trip. this toll increase would have to be approved by voters in june and right now the bay area toll authority is expecting to approve that resolution that would put this on the ballot before voters. back to you guys. >> alli rasmus, thank you. the sports doctor who admitted to molesting gymnast under his car will spend life behind bars. >> the right to convey -- i will carry your words with me for the rest of my days. >> nassar was sentenced to 40 to 175 years in prison today and

12:46 pm
day. a big burst with sun. we grew up in the bay area when you're inside for recess. that will be happening over the next few hours here as that front moves from the north bay which is moving into sonoma county ask spreading to the south. rainfall expectations, most areas will pick up between a quarter of an inch to an inch. but we could have a few areas for the coastal hills and isolated amounts topping one inch and massive amounts -- winds gusting to 40 miles-an-hour and a winter storm warning for the sierra. take a look at the numbers. you can see these numbers adding up ask these are rough estimates here. you get the idea. we're not talking about a few sprinkles and everybody picking up over a quarter of an inch. here's the satellite and the radar, the bulk of the rainfall all morning long has been along the north coast, and here's the coverage right now. so still dry in the south bay. still dry in livermore, but there's the coverage right now moving into the north bay.
12:47 pm
so mendocino county, lake county and you see the little whites showing up on the lay car, that's the snow fall with the snow fall up in the hills there. and here we go, rainfall moving into portions of sonoma county, so out toward windsor and roener park and that trend will continue, that rain line moving to the south over the next three to four hours. wind speeds up there as well. out of the south in advance of a storm direction. that's the storm, the wind is coming from the south and that's happening right now. sfo, that's a gust to 20 miles-an-hour. so lots of clouds in place over a good portion of the area for your wednesday afternoon and a lot happening out here in the pacific, so for today we have the main frontal passage for this afternoon, and the key headline the afternoon and commute will be a challenge out there with the downpours. tomorrow, cool showers. tomorrow is one of those deals where it's sunny and passing clouds, and then maybe some thunderstorm with possibility some hail. watching out for that on thursday.
12:48 pm
the weekend, it's an easy one. dry, and a bit of a warming trend after morning fog. this will be a snow producer with a winter storm warning in place. it started at 12:00 today. right through thursday until 10:00 a.m. friday and snow levels -- the snow fall above 8,000 feet could be topping two feet. so here's our forecast model. this is 3:00 this afternoon. once again we are concerned with the afternoon and evening commute. this is 4:00. and then some more breaks in the action. it won't go completely dry, but breaks later on tonight and with these showers tomorrow, this could trigger some thunderstorms and possibly some hail. cold enough we could have a dusting of snow up above 3500 feet. so we're thinking in mount hamilton and mount diablo and showers rolling to the bay area thursday afternoon. so watching out for those rain clouds, increase in coverage this afternoon. and here's a look ahead. what is nice, we need the breaks and we will get a break, so after thursday, we're going to warm things up into the weekend, in fact, more 60s out there.
