quick-moving system. it will bring us the potential of a quarter to possibly close to a half of an inch in parts of the north bay, where ukiah could reach close to 0.6 of an inch of rain and more snow in the sierra. live look at squaw valley lit up with fresh snow on the ground, looks so beautiful this morning. if you will be going to the sierra this weakened, we showed you the road conditions and looking at for most of our resorts, kingvale up to another ten inches of snow, just this weekend. we have a couple more storm systems on the way, so this one will be moving in tomorrow. there is another one set to arrive on tuesday into wednesday, and that's going to bring us some additional rainfall. it's going to be very chilly as well. we're looking at a chance of showers tomorrow morning, and highs reaching 55 degrees and behind that cold front, it is definitely going to be cold early next week. morning temperatures in the 30s and low 40s. highs only in the mid-50s, and as that next round of rain moves in, we'll see highs in the low
50s, not only for the inland irz -- areas but san francisco as well. we'll track the next rounds of rain. mike, you were talking about so far a couple of crashes. >> a couple smaller krs eer cra the roadway conditions are great. we did talk about the sierra enawe saw them checking for chains. still requirements for i-80 and highway 50. there's different weather over there, of course as you get toward the summit than here, so keep that in mind and check the highway conditions. i'll send out a link on twitter. the south bay north 87 close to the airport, a crash blocks your fast lane. no major injuries, shouldn't be a major problem. the speed sensors are holding up at the interchange itself, so we have a chp crew on scene to help. another crash here south 101 around wood side, this is at the off-ramp, a car went off the roadway into the dirt. no injuries there. smooth drive highway 84 the dumbarton bridge and the san mateo bridge, the live view
