from the refinery but we can confirm people were puzzled. >> my girlfriend noticed it yesterday morning. she was like i don't know what the white dust is on my car but it's there and i said, i imagine it's from the refineries. she found out later there was a fire. >> the refinery said the dust could potentially be catalyst dust which they use in the refinery process and they say it is not toxic. >> a big week in the sierra with a lot of people from the bay area going to the mountains with a holiday week. fresh snow means many resorts are already open. scientists were hoping a white winter would put a dent in the drought but now they are changing their expectations. >> reporter: ins terms of snowfall the sierra is off to a good start. the question is will the momentum continue and give california what it needs to make a dent in the drought or will we see a repeat of last year. tucked away deep in the woods in the sierra, there is someone who has a theory about how the winter will play out.
his name is andrew schwartz and he's the lead scientist at the uc berkeley central sierra snow lab and hopes that mother nature proves his prediction wrong. >> this winter is looking a lot like last winter. looking at warmer than average conditions, drier than average conditions. >> reporter: he keeps a close eye on the weather and climate trends. here he is measuring the depth of snow and how much water it is holding. >> california needs about an extra year of precipitation to get us out of the drought. >> a steady winter to build a strong snowpack would be a great place to begin. schwartz says it's hard to know what to expect when average conditions are no longer the norm. >> recently we have seen whether whiplash events where we are going right from one extreme to the next. last year
was a perfect example of this. we went from record-breaking october 2 deepest on record. one of the driest novembers on record. record-breaking december. most snowfall we had ever seen in a dry period. >> reporter: this makes managing the drought more difficult than it already is. >> for the most part we base a lot of the water management on average conditions when those conditions do not occur it makes our models less accurate and makes water managers jobs a little harder. >> the lack of average winter conditions could make things harder and other realms of life as well. many businesses and towns throughout the sierra had historically relied on average winters. and at this coffee roasters, lizzie herford hopes that schwartz's prediction is wrong. >> things like this coffee shop and other cases in town, they rely on tourism aspects with people coming in. we don't have any snow. it's a draw to a small town like this. it's not quite as intense.
>> reporter: right now there's plenty of snow in the sierra. some ski resorts are opening early. >> we had a lot of snow so far in this season. >> reporter:'s shorts says there's a nice base place for the snowpack so now we wait. only time will tell if winter will decide to prove him wrong. he sure hopes this is the case. >> it's important we have a good winter. >> reporter: he is grateful he will have a front row seat as this unfolds. with drought we would really like to see rain. >> we would. >> you know coming up this winter and spring but what is the long-term forecast? >> we heard from the snow lab there is that hopes aren't high. one of the most important ways to see that, we had el niño this year. looking at the sea surface temperatures, the anomalies, the deeper shades of
blue along the equator show where the sea surface temperatures are notably cooler than the average. that's la niña it's different from el niño. it does the opposite. when we hear the research at the university central of sierra snow lab say we don't have high hopes that is why. having said that, we are likely to get some snow. it will be significant but it's two inches coming to the sierra. monday night into tuesday morning. we won't even get a drop of rain when this happens. i'll show you why in a second. first let's go through in order, the rest of the week is fantastic. tomorrow will look and feel pretty much like today did. we were near 70 for many warmer inland spots. mid to upper 60s for the rest of the bay. it will be calling in tomorrow but not as cold as it has been.
not as cold as it's about to get next week. by the middle of next week these numbers will be noticeably colder to freezing again. in the upper 30s for a lot of the rest of us. daytime highs tomorrow are great. no issues here. right on the mark if not a few degrees above this. cooling down, here's how the sierra will get a little bit of snow, this little system, this cold front organizing a line. we could watch this as we go from sunday afternoon, the rain begins to disappear but look at the cold air that keeps spilling down our way behind it which is the start of the pattern that will begin to take not only morning lows but also daytime highs down by wednesday next week nobody's getting out of the upper 50s for daytime highs. it will feel noticeably cooler by then. looking at the long range track there is a possibility
that we could get back into the storm track but it's going to thursday now. looking ahead to december 1, it's at least within the seven day forecast. saturday, only looking out bio by five days. getting more confidence in the long-range forecast that looks great. the perfect kind of storm because it's this long stretch of moisture feeding into it with cold air producing snow in the sierra with some more coming after this. we will give this a little more time to play out. we have gotten head faked but there is a reason that we could have optimism about some rain. whether or not we get rain we will be cold. morning lows in the north bay valley where we see the extremes, wednesday
morning down to 29 degrees. the north bay valley is the extreme. the majority for the rest of the bay will look at temperatures in the upper 30s and low 40s for morning lows by the time we get there. you could see the daytime highs are also coming down. san jose at 66, 58 on tuesday. then we begin the chance of rain on thursday, friday, and saturday. we see this in the rest of the seven day forecast as well for hour microclimates. as we showed you there, a big fan base. fans showing up for a world cup watch party in union square this morning. they are featuring argentina, the legendary lionel messi and in fact argentina wound up beating mexico 2-0. >> the perfect segue because we have highlights coming up. i guess minutes. you'll have to wait a minute. need some patience with their young talent with highlights from all the big games this saturday
20 games are in the books were golden state warriors. nine and one at home and one and nine on the road. all of the averages brings golden state to just that, average. a 10 and 10 record for the warriors after defeating the jazz last night. they've won for of five playing their best basketball in the month of november. they are doing this without a ton of contributions from their three young lottery pics. most thought the warriors would run it back, they would need big jumps from these players. this hasn't happened and in order for this to happen you may need some patience. >> he's a seventh picked. moses is the 14th pick. james is a second pick. those guys usually are on teams that suck and they can do whatever they need to do to improve. that's
not the situation. they are expected to contribute at a championship level in the first year. the reality is if you go find the rest of the guys around the league that are there age and try to put them in this situation, all of the guys come aware like a man he's doing great. the reason we feel like that is because they are on bad teams making growth through the mistakes but it's not the same for these guys. >> it was a great day of college football, playoffs on the line for the last week with most teams. michigan had not beaten ohio state in columbus since 2000. clinton had not lost a home game over the last 40 games. ohio state, michigan, the number two buckeyes hosting jim harbaugh in the third-ranked wolverines. this game was a big play after big play. ohio state cj stroud, marvin harrison junior for the 42 yard score with a 20-17 halftime lead. those plays i mentioned, the michigan team

another day of the week where you will get a day just like this. agree accrue cooler or two cooler. at the airport it was 70 so we had a few out there. tomorrow, those numbers are probably 10 degrees cooler. the mornings, i think it will make a big deal. we are going down to 30 or even a degree or two below that by the middle of next week with the northbay valley. for now it's a clear and beautiful night. the scene looking toward the city skyline from treasure island. looking at the lows, these aren't that bad. 30s for the northbay. low to mid 40s for most of the immediate day. highs tomorrow climbing up to write about where we were today. talking about how things change, the reason why we have a cooldown coming next week, we are pooling in with some cold fronts showing up tomorrow morning. that well organized line, the rain falls apart but the cold front
remains. you can see the influence with the cool air spilling in behind it. the cooldown starts for us on monday with a little bit of light snow . even if we don't get rain out of it, it's brief. we could get an inch or two of accumulation. monday night into tuesday morning. the levels are around 4000 feet. travel monday night, tuesday in the sierra. nuisance snow. here is where things get more meaningful. thursday, that is close enough. this shows up into the seven day forecast. it looks good in the models but it also looks fantastic. the problem is over the last six weeks. or even eight weeks, the forecast models have resolved these beautifully .
then they start falling apart. the forecast models, there could be more coming in. we won't worry outals or timing but the notion from thursday onto next week we could be back in the storm track. the cold air is coming. the morning lows for the northbay valley which it was 40 degrees this morning when you woke up in the northbay. the mid to upper 30s over the next few days and then 29 by the time we get to wednesday, we won't all do that, the northbay valleys of the coldest. everyone else will be in the upper 30s to low 40s which is cold enough. begin thinking ahead for that. it's colder through here then we wait to see what will pull
together over here. it's nice the way the timing works out. the last time we got a storm cycle coming through, that started on november 1 then we got showers through the first week or so in november. this one would be starting on december 1 which by the way is the start of the meteorology goal meteorological winter. that's what it looks for the microclimates. a noticeably cooler with daytime highs near 70. the northbay tomorrow, not above 58 degrees by the time we get to wednesday. so grab a jacket and maybe remember where your umbrellas are. over to you. next, california radio station run entirely by one single person. when we come back.
