7:44 raand i have a feelingt is going to be a nice day. 35 in the north bay. and let's look at satellite radar, clear sky, and you can see why we dipped down in the 30s in the north bay. look at what is going on in the pacific northwest. tracking a cold front. before i get to, that let's get you prepped for your day. your afternoon high, mild weather. today, 68 in san jose. and 70 through livermore. oakland, 65. san francisco, a little breezy at 64 degrees. up through santa rosa, 70 degrees. so a dry weekend ahead. but if you're going to be around the coastline, there is a beach hazard statement in effect, through 5:00 p.m. and what this means is basically, we're talking about sneaker waves and excessive wave run up.
7:46 am
so be careful out there. big changes ahead. we have a pleasant warm weekend. and slight warming into the 70s and warmer today than we were yesterday, but it is the rain that is going to make the big story, because it could be the very first significant rainfall that we've seen of the rainy season and it will move in late tuesday night. we got a cool front moving from north to south and what does that mean for thanksgiving. right now, all models are lining up and they are all in agreement, that we will see anywhere from a half of an inch to over an inch to the higher mountain top areas with the most rain for monterey and santa cruz and southern california, so it is a big week of travel, if you're traveling along the grapevine, this is a good time to get checked, check the tires and the windshield wipers because it hasn't rained in a long time. and any dry oils on the roads will come up and make for some messy roads. keep it safe out there. in addition to the cold front dropping down and bringing the rain, because it is a cold
7:47 am
system, it will bring snow to the sierra and maybe a possible dusting of snow for some of the lower elevations locally, but look how beautiful squaw valley looks there, a cold morning there and let's talk about the estimated snow accumulations, into thanksgiving, and look at that, luke canyon, 24 inches of snow, and tahoe, 20, south lake tahoe, 11 inches of snow. a good amount of snowfall, presh powder just in time for thanksgiving. and a look at the seven-day forecast. i will try to break it down for you. of course we have the food drive, and we will be at the safeway locations. and the winds pick up on monday. look at what happens to the temperatures. chilly 49 degrees with spotty rain on wednesday. and on thursday, a 60% chance of seeing rain on thanksgiving. so right now, it is going to be a rainy week ahead. kira? >> rain, but sun in the meantime. we like that. vianey, thanks. still ahead on today in the bay, at 7:47, a live look for you, at safeway, in rivermark

. welcome back. it is time for the clear the shelters segment with our friends from pets in need, development manager jacqueline stewart and the clinic manager courten marten are here, with valerie, she is a 14-year-old chihuahua mix. and you guys just rescued her from the central valley, is that right? >> yes, she has been with us for
7:57 am
about two months, came from selma and your standard little old lady dog. everything you would expect for her age, and maybe hearing is not 100% and the vision is not 100%, but she knows when the food is coming, she follows you around the house, and we haven't had a potty accident yet, and you know. >> that's impressive. >> and a professional napper. >> i like that with people and animals and you rescued her because she would have been a candidate probably to not stick around. >> yes. >> and enter another facility. because she has teeth problems and arthritis she had maybe seven teeth left in her once we got there and ended up taking them out and she has no teeth now and that's okay, she still eats like a champion, she has little joint issues like we all do by the time we're middle aged, and so she won't be able to jump on the furniture by herself, but she still cruises
7:58 am
around, just a short walk from everything and stays comfy. >> nice for people who don't want to deal with an energetic chi wa was, she is pretty mellow and doesn't need to run around too much. and she is on medication, is that right? and so -- >> no medication right now. just as needed for, if her arthritis were picking up. she has been doing well lately. >> and you have been able to take care of her because of this wonderful fund that you have, that we talked about before. >> the memorial fund is designed to help low income seniors with their vet care, so animals like valerie don't have to end up in the shelter, if people need help, we can provide that financial assistance, and so that if they need routine medical care or the specialized procedure, they can apply through this fund, and they can help them out. >> so if someone is 62 or older and lives in san mateo and santa clara county, they can apply for the memorial fund, to help them fund their failing animals. >> yes. >> we hope you check out
7:59 am
