little spots of green popping up in the very northern reaches the bay area this afternoon. now tonight is when we'll start to see some rainfall and real rain pushing into the north bay and then dropping into the rest of the bay area into tomorrow. thursday is going to be our next round of rain. and the north bay is going to be a big winner from this one. seeing widespread showers, moderate pockets of it come tomorrow afternoon dropping into the rest of the bay area. little bit later on in the day and also noticing all that snowfall in the sierra. another cold system. so this is going to be another good snowmaker up in the sierra nevada mountains in really not the only one either. we've got another one to follow it friday night into saturday morning and another one on top of that looking likely into tuesday of next week. so april's coming through for us more than any month of this year has been so far january march, february, all of them and just been dry. now we are going to be seeing showers most significant for the north bay. as i noted santa rosa around a half an inch of rainfall expected tomorrow. most of the rest of us, a 10th
5:16 am
to a quarter of an inch. you add on top of this additional rainfall friday night into saturday. and by the time we reached the weekend, santa rosa around an inch of rain map and getting close to that, most of the rest of the bay closer to a half an inch or 3 quarters of an inch of rainfall. so great to be talking this. we really do need it winds. another factor today that is going to keep you clutching those jackets pretty tightly 10 to 15 miles per hour gusts today. that is calmer than yesterday. certainly calmer than 2 days ago. but enough paired with those 50's and low 60's that you want to stay cozy areas like san francisco and the coast staying in the 50's. what we do have a few more 60's on the map. burlingame south to san mateo and down the mountain view right at 60 degrees. south bay temperatures in the low 60's in the east bay sharing your range of upper 50's to low 60's for you. i mentioned that chance of a couple light sprinkles in the north bay, mostly for areas like yacht ville and santa rosa northward. most of the rest of the north bay, like the rest of us will stay dry tonight

5:19 am
looking like it will see. this will be up to the cdc ultimately. and the agency is considering an extension of the mask mandate due to the ba 2 variant spreading. the biden administration says it is not overly concerned about the variant due to low hospitalization rates. on other hand, officials say it is very contagious and many states are seeing a surge in cases right now. president biden signed an executive order on his first full day in office ordering people to wear masks in public transportation before that was airlines that were requiring people to wear them. the president could see some backlash if he does decide to have this mask mandate extend. but again, it's cdc's coming up with a plan. and of course, they always have their science to back up. they think it's needed but want to see how people feel here at sfo. i'm actually excited to talk to people and see how they feel. i know some people are excited to take them off while others say no matter what like in the future, 10 years from now, they're going to wear a mask. some people just feel that way after what we've been through.
