6:18 am
san ramon, concord, antioch, all see moderate to heavy rainfall. up in the high country snow levels down to just above pollock pines and grass valley. i think they will continue to lower throughout the day into tomorrow. a winter storm warning in effect through saturday afternoon. snow levels down to around 3,000 feet. travel delays for the foothills and the sierra. rain in the bay area will taper off earlier but we'll continue to see snow flurries likely in the higher elevations through tomorrow. current temperatures outside, 45 in santa rosa right now. 51 in san jose. 45 in livermore at this hour. satellite perspective shows what's the trigger for all of this. this area of low pressure right now it is spinning this front our way. but notice also this popcorn- like cloud structure indicative of a cold air mass. that cold air is also unstable and will bring with it the possibility of thunderstorms later on this afternoon.
6:19 am
so for right now, we're dealing with the front of the the heaviest rain, the highest winds, passing through. behind it, lingering showers -- really widespread rain continuing through lunchtime today. it's later this afternoon that the showers become a bit more scattered in nature and we get the best possibility for those thunderstorms that daytime heating. advancing over into saturday, a couple of lingering showers possible for the first part of the day but overall, we'll be dry for the second half of your christmas eve and the first day of chanukah. continuing on into christmas morning, i think we could see some freezing temperatures overnight saturday into sunday especially in some of our inland valleys so make sure the kids bundle up. we have dry conditions for your christmas. but cold is the story for this holiday weekend. rain forecast showing just how much we might see over the next 24 hours. we could see up to an inch in the north bay, 1.5" in the highest elevations of the santa cruz mountains, quarter to half inch in the south bay and up to three-quarters inch in the east bay. what to expect? breaking it down.
6:20 am
a wet start with gusty winds this morning. afternoon showers with possible thunderstorms, and then mainly dry but chilly this weekend. certainly during those overnight hours. good news if you are heading up to the slopes for this holiday weekend. plenty of new snow heading your way anywhere from one to three feet at the highest elevations so kirkwood with fresh powder for you. north star has 18 to 36" already and squaw valley going to see some fresh powder for you, as well. sunrise today 7:23. sunset 4:56. a look at those high temperatures shows not too high at all topping out only in the 50s today. so again rain and wind today, winter storm warning in effect through tomorrow. and the extended forecast shows that we do start to dry out saturday and sunday but it will be chilly staying dry through next week. now over to sports. well, coming up in sports, college hoops both stanford and usf in action with one of the teams trying to pull off an upset and for the warriors, draymond green was missing in action as the team starts its

6:31 am
passing through santa rosa, yountville, heading down to vallejo, novato, fairfax. we are definitely seeing, though, heavy rainfall now, in fact i wouldn't be surprised if you saw some flooded roadways, some ponding on the roads this morning, in and around san francisco, daly city, south san francisco. now the heavy rainfall pushing off to the easterlyier today. light rainfall heavy from berkeley, oakland, san leandro, hayward, san ramon, walnut creek, further east up to the high country. this is the big story for travel today. take a look at this. low snow levels. the rain-snow mix line just above pollack pines and grass valley. likely going to continue to sink farther to the west as we make our way throughout the morning. so certainly a winter storm warning in effect not only today but continuing tomorrow. showers will taper off for us tomorrow. but snow will linger in the sierra. gusty winds travel delays likely snow down to around
6:32 am
3,000 feet. plenty of snow up about 3 feet up at the higher elevations so good news for the ski resorts. anticipate travel delays at the airports, as well. wet and windy to start our day at sfo. likely seeing delays throughout the day there and also really around the country. a couple of our hubs, chicago, houston, going to see inclement weather today could help to cause travel delays at other hubs, as well. afternoon highs in the bay not too warm. in fact we'll see temperatures staying in the 50s today. so certainly on the cool side. that cold air mass could spark some showers later today, as well. so we will keep an eye on that throughout the day for you. we do have places we are drying as we head into the holiday weekend. i'll time out the rain with futurecast coming up. in the meantime parts of the peninsula have already seen thick sheets of rain this morning. kpix 5's maria medina is live in half moon bay on high surf
