call back channel talks. there's also been a lot of speculation about the timing of the meeting, but the white house is remaining tightlipped. >> again, i can't get into the details of the preparation and progress being made. but i can tell you we are continuing to move forward in hopes having the meeting take place. >> meantime, the wall street journal reports representatives from the u.s. south and north korea will hold unofficial talks in fin lan in the coming days. time is 6:13. congress faces another government shut down deadline this week. lawmakers have until midnight friday to approve a massive spending bill. they were supposed to have passed a funding bill back in september. september 30th but the government has been running on a series of short-term funding bills instead. it could happen again this week if republicans and democrats can agree and pass a spending bill by the end of friday. if you are a driver leaving alameda plan to go through the posey tube expect major delays.

monterey south. sierra will see a snow level go up and come way down so starting tuesday, wednesday, it's high. and thursday and friday it drops way down again. more feet of snow. and all this moisture is entrained by the deep low tapping into moisture that goes all the way back to the hawaiian islands and as it does, it will funnel that in here later today many and set the sustaining for a cloudy start to tuesday and rain developing throughout the day and going off and on for probably the rest of the week today not bad but leading edge of the clouds are getting into the picture. it's cold, 30s and 40s on temps on the mi fins -- peninsula. woodside is in there. anding attar ton and minimum low -- man low park. and -- menlo park. foster city is at 40. so mostly sunny this morning. and turn partly cloudy probably by noon. -- turning partly imlowdy probably by noon. -- cloudy probably by noon. rain starts tomorrow not today.
