5:47 pm
no. new snow in the sierra. but watch what happens starting tuesday night at 5:00. tuesday night through wednesday we'll let it play and we'll let the snow pile in. that covers the first wave. by wednesday night we've already gotten close to 2 feet at kirkwood and over a foot on donner pass, and that's important. i want to talk to you more about that in a second. there's the rest of the snow because going into thursday it still snows flurries and additional snow, but the bulk of the snow comes through early on wednesday. and that means difficult travel for anybody as we approach the holiday who needs to get up into the mountains. here's the headline on that. we have a winter storm watch in place tuesday afternoon through thursday afternoon. in other words, the window of time you or someone you know and care about would need to travel over the mountains in there. there's highway 80 and 50, those are the most common ways people travel. i-80 the most common. that's the mountain pass that
5:48 pm
takes you right over donner, past sugar bowl, towards truckee. that's 7,057 feet. but if you look at how low the snow line is, wednesday down to 3,000 feet. that means it's not only snowing on the pass when you're taking the drive, but much more important, it will be snowing for a good section of the drive for anybody on wednesday going into mountains. let's look at the rest of the system coming our way because there's a chance for rain. a good looking chance now beginning late tuesday and through thursday bay area-wide. the heaviest rains come through on tuesday night, and of course that number 3, we've already talked about the snow in the sierra. but let me show you the system as it approaches. similar time frame to what we just looked at in the mountains. tuesday night, or morning. starting at 8:00 a.m. the rain gets here by tuesday afternoon. stop it here. tuesday afternoon into tuesday night. deeper bands of green coming
5:49 pm
through the bay area. the timing on this could change. we're still several days out obviously from tuesday. so let's not get too married to the idea of the exact timing just yet. since the models are showing that, i'll start talking about it now with the caveat that we have to expect some adjustment here in timing and amounts. tuesday night into wednesday morning looks like the most impressive time for rain, and look at the totals. that's not a soaker for the bay area, but it will be a good rain maker for us into the holiday. and i'll play that forward. as we go through wednesday and thursday, we'll keep a chance of scattered showers going into thanksgiving, and we keep a chance of rain staying with us through thursday. meantime between now and then, nothing is going to happen. look how pretty that day looks out there. we made temperatures back into the mid-60s most places. we go upper 60s tomorrow. those are the daytime highs in the south bay for saturday.
5:50 pm
sunshine and temperatures near 70 inland, and that stays with us throughout the weekend. i spent the whole forecast talking about snow in the sierra and rain in the bay area. none of that happens until tuesday. you've got the next 2 days, aka the weekend to get outside and enjoy fantastic sunny and warm, and then monday things cool down a bit, and by tuesday we get into the action. by friday hopefully things will have cleared. but we'll keep you updated on the details as we approach that. guys back to you. all right, thank you. a car doing donuts for an hour. the neighbors were shocked to find who was really behind the wheel. knowing i have a treatment that goes
