donation of adduct, or just advocating, talking about the food, sharing one of the earlier reporters asked me, he said one out of six is how many we are providing food to in the community. how did they know the need of the others? the reality is we really don't know how many of those are actually food insecure, as well. >> that's right. through service we get to know our neighbors but if you want to be a part of this and, maybe i will show up in surprise you as well just like i did here, go to our website, kpix.com , or look at the qr code. either money or time, back to you. still ahead, a lot of resorts already open early, what you can expect for the tahoe getaway.
conditions, looking good on the roads, about as good as they could be. the resort could get a boost with a chance of snow showers, sunday night into monday. that is the expend of my forecasting ability. a lot of resorts open early including boreal, heavenly, sierra tahoe which was damaged in the caldor fire is expected to open on december 3rd. not bad, maybe a month ago we were thinking, it's going to be a rough one. but then we got that last minute rain. >> yes, we had a great first week and a half in november. the snow coming on monday, but is up there, just enough that it is kind of fun . >> not meaningful snow. >> not meaningful, exactly, just what we need. near caught in a pattern right now, which is making it really nice, here, sunny above average, we showed you at the top of the newscast, 10 degrees above average today, that was the view from the top of the salesforce camera. a wonderful day to be outside , but it looks hazy. here's how we will
start changing things. this is the first weekend weather system that will fall apart before it gets here but even if the rain disappears, let's advance this to saturday, we will still feel the impact from that system, you can follow the line, snow falling for nevada, it holds together, and the clouds go through, that is a weak cold front. we are not getting any rain, but we will at least get a little bit of a change. it is subtle, but that is the first one. there will be a couple more that do that. that one lined up for sunday into monday. you can already see how that one, while it does get snow to the sierra and tahoe, going into early monday, that is about as good as that system will look. what what happens when we advance it forward. it pretty much falls apart. these systems are starting to develop into a pattern. there is another one there, look at that in a second, because now we are getting too far into the long-range forecast. we will take this for the rest of the four day weekend but here's
friday morning. not frigid. cold in those northbay valleys. down to 39, though most of us are staying in the 40s and daytime highs tomorrow, even if they are not as warm as today, it will be close. we will start that subtle drop in numbers, which then get going, we could cold front on saturday, bringing us a few more and by tuesday and wednesday of next week, some places in the 70s, today, into the upper 50s, lex and jose. it's a big drop. 70 in a second. first items to discuss for tomorrow, there is a beach hazard statement. a lot of energy from the pacific, directed at us. if your plans tomorrow are to go to the beach, and they might be if you have friends or family, just be very careful near the surface, sneaker risk and come up from nowhere but you will get a set of waves that look totally calm and all of a sudden, out of nowhere, you get a long run of water which can take things back out with it, sometimes.
so, that is the concern with that beach hazard . in terms of the big picture, the storm track is not getting motivated enough just yet. there is the possibility for a chance of rain. we've been through this dance many times. i don't have any rain in the seven day forecast. we will not get too carried away with it yet. if you are looking at the details and noticed the clouds increase by the time we get into thursday, what i really wanted to see is the cool down in temperatures. so, northbay valleys from 70, tomorrow, to 61 on monday. that is a 10 degree drop and everyone will do that. the middle of next week, 10 degrees cooler than you are today and tomorrow. that is probably the main thing. i wish we could say we could time out some rain coming our way. for now, it is just a bit of a seesaw with temperatures. >> president biden sharing his next steps in the push for gun control after a mass shooting at the virginia walmart .
jericka duncan has more. coming up on the cbs evening news, new details in the mass shooting inside a walmart, which killed six people. president biden says he will try to take steps before republicans take steps to control the house. have heart failure and still experience unresolved symptoms? heart e unrelated symptoms like carpal tunnel syndrome... ...shortness of breath... ...irregular heartbeat... ...and lower back pain could mean something more serious called attr-cm a rare, underdiagnosed disease that worsens over time, so it's important to recognize the signs. sound like you? call your cardiologist and ask about attr-cm.
looking for a christmas tree this weekend. so, here is the good news. there is a wider selection of artificial trees this year. last year, they were hard to find because of shipping delays from producers in china which meant some trees did not show up until after the holidays which is obviously too late. the surplus, now, means you might find a good deal. >> from a promotional perspective, you will be able to see anything from 25 to 50 or 60% off at certain retailers this year. >> if you want a real tree that will probably be harder. depending on the kind you want, whichever way you go, expect to pay more for a tree this year. >> are you finding, this year, consumers are being drawn one way versus another? >> definitely consumers are going to the end of the spectrum, buying less of the $1000 trees and more of the $200 trees. >> who is buying $1000 trees? survey shows wholesale prices up 5% to 15%. for less popular
