they missed the most fake snow that used to blow twice each night. >> the last thing that we need is for kids to be laughing, playing, having fun, trying to lick that snow and to have that officer come and close us down. >> i love that work and effort >> the hope is by next christmas, they will once again be communal. hopefully positive attitude and energy for a new 2021. >> they will run through new year's eve, starting years ago with about 40 trees. now topped out at 200. all the towns electrical system, they could handle. in windsor ktvu fox 2news.
storms all hitting the gulf of alaska with the mud slide issues because of all the rain and all the snow as we have missed out on everything, it's a lot of drive. the next chance for showers will show up the 14th of december. we will put it out there, probably like the end of next week or the beginning of the following week, so it is a ways off. but we've got them to talk about tonight. now look at the bull's eye as we would do that already. these winds are all about the early morning hours as they will get going late tonight and early in the morning, 7:00 a.m. then watch how quickly they dissipate.
pretty quick event. it will be worrisome for sure, just not hot or dry. so this is an atmospheric river, where we are, but thive, into alaska, vancouver, then for us, we've got the low center that will be creating the large surf along the coast. it did last week, fairly big and sizable. it will be bigger as we will head into this tuesday and wednesday, tuesday is the biggest day followed by wednesday. but tuesday, it could be 25- foot swells, which is bigger than the last swell, which went up to 15 to 18 feet. so the temperatures right now on the cool side. you can expect more of what you would have this mortgage. these are the forecast highs for tomorrow. you can see 68 in some of the inland valleys, 73 in santa rosa and antioch, so it is pretty warm for december. so again, fire danger will be high tonight. red flag warnings in effect for those areas that we showed you
earlier. strong winds, gusting on top of the mountain. those winds will die off quickly, back to 8:00 to 9:00 in the morning. so the five-day forecast will be repetitive as they all have been since the middle of november. but we do have a change coming. we have saturday and sunday, which is going to be increasing clouds, partly cloudy with some increasing clouds. the actual opportunity then for someone to come in early next week, which will be very welcome. especially considering the fact that we will be way behind the rainfall and snowfall in the bay area. so this pattern, which we have been seeing for the month of november looks like it will go away in this new pattern shift. it'll start by monday of next week, tuesday, wednesday, and it could be a shift to opening up their door, giving us significant rainfall in here. that's the hope. in the meantime beware of those strong winds tonight. already blowing on top of mount diablo and mount st. helena, about 35 miles. we will take a look at the
forecast again at 11:00 with an update. >> all right, we'll see you then, bill, thanks. three, two, one. and lift off of the falcon 9. >> spacex launched another rocket today to the international space station. the falcon 9 rocket took off this morning from cape canaveral. its carrying a newer bigger version of spacex's dragon supply ship. among the items in the cargo holiday presents for the four astronauts on board the space station. the capsule will remain at the i.s.s. for about a month before unknocking, returning to earth, and splashing into the atlantic. coming up next in sports, the incredible ending at the meadowlands. joe fonzi up next with how the raiders beat the winless jets with only five seconds left in the game. and then on the 11:00 news, stay-at-home order will be in effect in four bay area counties at midnight. but one gym owner says he is going to be open come tomorrow. we will hear from him at 11:00.

they've got one play here. somehow they decided to go with the blitz and the man coverage on henry ruggs. carr will beat the rush to put the ball on the money, where they take the lead with just five seconds left. but the defensive call is impossible to explain, so is the coverage, who has no reason to bite on that move at the 30- yard line, where the completion will be game over. but the raiders, they'll take that 31-28 win, that will have them at 7-5. after the game, still coming to grips about what they had just seen. >> we are talking about the emotional roller coaster, to be able to have time back on the clock, just praying for one more chance, you know, and it was seven seconds left. i couldn't believe that they will all out that blitz on us. but as soon as i saw it, i was thankful. he's prepared me and equipped me to handle those situations whenever they need to handle it accordingly. a couple of games the 49ers cared very much about before
their game tomorrow night. colt mccoy leading the 4-7 giants against seattle. mccoy to the open alfred morris in the third quarter of the defensive struggle. playing 14-5 and they added a field goal in the fourth quarter. but they got close and they are down to their last chance. here is russell wilson who will run for his life, unloads the pass on 4th and 18. and it will fall incomplete. giants will take over on downs and run out the clock as they win 17-12, tied for first place. the rams and jared goff knew they could grab their share of the lead with a win over kyler murray and the cardinal, still a two-possession game on troy hill, sealing it for l.a. he picks off the murray pass and returns it 35 yards for his score. and he will also return the fumble for the touchdown last week against the 49ers. but the rams, they needed to bounce back to win. but they fall to 6-6, which means the 49ers, they could move even with the cardinals if they beat them tomorrow night in that same stadium.
ucla and cal met today at the pavilion. the bruins earliest pac-12 basketball opener in modern history. mark fox and the bears, bringing a 2-2 record into the game. but ucla got off to a fast start. he hits a three for cal and then he came off the bench to score 14 points, but cal was still down by 18 at the half. the bruins, they didn't open up the door in the second half. campbell, lost to hill. hill, he slams one down. that was one of 12 assists for campbell as they will roll out to a 76-56 win. cal is 2-3 overall and 0-2 in the conference. now stanford in greensboro, north carolina, during today's shootaround. davis with a little wager with his coach, gets the basketball to stick in that rack. he then has to pay with push- ups. the cardinals are playing north carolina ant. the game wasn't close. stanford with the steal, and
the freshman, williams finishes, stanford 78-46 winner. and the stanford women in their relocated conference opener in las vegas against washington. stanford number two in the country, very much looking to part already in front big in the third quarter. hailey jones will take it all the way to her 29. jones added 13 rebounds. just a minute later it's going to work inside with a nice move. stanford rolls 83-50. tara vanderveer two passes away from passing pat summit in the winningest coach in basketball history. stanford will also be number one in the nation this week after south carolina lost on thursday. jason appelbaum and chase will have a lot more at 11:30. >> all right, we'll see you then, thank you. >> you bet. coming up next here at 11:00. >> we made the decision we're going to do whatever it takes. >> residents in five bay area counties were told to honker down to want as a new stay-at- home order takes effect as
