11:18 pm
result of neighborhood demographics are more likely to drink alcohol and have other behavioral problems. researchers looked at data on more than 1200 school aged black children across the country from 1991 to 2014, who attended such schools. they found the more segregated the school, the greater the likelihood that black children had behavioral issues or were consuming alcohol. the ucsf study was published this week in the journal pediatrics. well san francisco is gearing up for 4 20 tomorrow, the unofficial holiday celebrating marijuana as ktvu jana katsuyama tells us this year's celebration includes one big change vendors will be selling marijuana products. for some people, the grass is always greener at hippie hill on 4 24 20 tomorrow, so i think everyone's just going to come out and have a good time. you know. this year, the 4 20 marijuana celebration is returning to golden gate park and community organizer spent all day tuesday, setting up the
11:19 pm
main stage and tents were more than 40 sponsors. merchant booths and food trucks will be set up for wednesday's celebration. alexa aquino, the organizer, says this year will feature the special comedy tribute to robin williams. they be renamed this, um middle robin williams veto and so we're doing a dedication to him. what's become a worldwide annual celebration of marijuana on april 20th has drawn tens of thousands of people to golden gate park's hippie hill in years past. but one big change this year because this is the first year where there are legal sales. state law requires us. you will not be allowed in unless you are. 21 parameter will be fenced in so the goldman tennis center nearby will be closed all day and the correct children's playground, which is right behind the main stage will also be closed. that's just fine, with some longtime residents glad to see the city step in with organizers to keep the peace. everybody just gets stoned and stupid. quite frankly , i think it's a great idea that
11:20 pm
they're going to putting some structure to it for others event changes the feel this organized , fenced in the gathering is a little bit more commercial than like what cannabis meant for people in this community park staff, though, said before organizers stepped in, there were problems with parking, sanitation and trash respectful of this very special. l'park. treat it like it's yours and, you know, be kind to the neighborhood and be considerate to each other organizers say they are concerned about potential fentanyl poisoning, so they're urging people not to buy any products off the street. there will be police and park rangers as well as a medical tent here on site the gates open at 10 o'clock in the morning. reporting from golden gate park in san francisco. jana katsuyama ktvu, fox two news. already taking a look at the weather. it's gonna be a nice day tomorrow. plenty of sunshine clouds increased late in the day and then showers develop. in the afternoon late afternoon in the north based spread in overnight into the day thursday and a little bit of the thursday night as well, here's the system. it's
11:21 pm
a nice looking weather system for this time of year. it's got a little bit of everything with it. it looks like i mean, for this time of year, i'd give it a 10 in terms of ability to deliver rain and snow. um and that's that's good. this time of year. we get really weak storms, and this one's a little more than week. it's got a little game and a half of rain possible. that's the heaviest locations. that's pretty good. that means maybe a half inch in san francisco, maybe a half inch in oakland. inch and a half up on mount 10, maybe more. and then that thursday afternoon chance of this widely scattered thundershower rainfall accumulations wind gust of 40 miles an hour and in the mountains suspect perhaps, of foot and a half to 2.5 to almost three ft. of snow just depends where you are, but i think three ft of snow not out of the question. the other thing to note is that winter storm warning stays in effect through friday morning, so that's a kind of a two day or almost a two or almost a three day event. um, counting wednesday afternoon. and that is a lot of time to have a system up there going off. so yeah. three ft of snow possible the forecast for
11:22 pm
tomorrow. the overnight lows will be just where they have been. and then, as we head into tomorrow, this system gets closer. you can already see it pulling in, but its focus is going to be the north and then working its way south over the daytime hours. and so the model does this as we get into 10 o'clock tomorrow night. the showers develop all day. thursday we get scattered showers. you see him? keep going. that doesn't do nice job showing it, but, um, showers keep coming. and then the end on thursday night into friday forecast highs tomorrow will be a little bit milder than today. not much, but the idea of this thing is big time overnight rain breaks off a little thursday morning gets going again thursday afternoon. the evening maybe a sprinkle friday morning , but the bulk of this is right in here winston knight into thursday morning, there's five day forecast, we'll talk again, time it out more or better or differently for you tomorrow. bill. thank you knew at 11. now. in los angeles, a man was sentenced for the murder of philanthropists jacqueline oven
