then by 8 o'clock this evening. the rain will be in the valleys and down through the south bay and then by midnight most of us will be clear and dry making for some very chilly conditions overnight into tomorrow morning rainfall estimates for the most part near 10th of an inch all around the bay maybe 900 of an inch in oakland and then we could get more rainfall near the coast like half moon bay near a quarter and also in the higher elevations clear lake at near a quarter of an inch as well and with the system moving. east after it passes through the bay area. it's also going to bring snow to the sierra. so there's a winter weather advisory it at 8 o'clock tonight through 5 am tomorrow avoid driving during that time if you can because areas above. feet could get to date inches of snow maybe even close to a foot in some spots and there will likely be some travel delays temperatures right now are mostly in the 50s and you'll notice it was a drastic change from yesterday. we went from summer weather to this brisk fall like feeling
today. they drop by near 30 degrees in some spots in fact like that in ukiah and anywhere from 20 degrees to 15 degrees cooler in many parts of the bay area as a system moves through we all start getting breezy and gusty questions right now winds at sfo 26 miles per hour as well as fairfield and san francisco and novato 17 miles per hour. so the lows tonight will be quite chilly. make sure the kids bundle up for school tomorrow morning, especially in the north bay. only upper 30s through santa rosa lakeport low 50s for almost everyone around the bay area and at the beaches in the coast upper 40s, and tomorrow's highs will be about 10 degrees cooler than average so similar to days numbers most everybody in the 60 san francisco 61 oakland 63 san jose 64 santa rosa 66 degrees here is the accuweather 7-day forecast. so once the rain passes through we'll have a chilly start but mostly sunny tomorrow then
tuesday the clouds increase as we get a chance of rain dropping in the afternoon and evening and then light showers for our next round of rain on wednesday thursday afternoon best chance of rain in the bay bringing another round of showers on friday and then our heaviest system looks to move in saturday into sunday, and we'll be keeping an eye on that. so have your umbrellas handy you'll be using them a lot this week. now abc 7 sports with chris alvarez the week began with john gruden resigning his head coach of ended with the team snapping a two-game losing streak in earning a tough win in denver rich versace taken over as the interim head coach there. he is las vegas opened with a sixth place 75 yard touchdown drive capped by derek carter henry rugs the third 48 yards the house seven. nothing silver in black coach versace acting like i've been there before but you know inside he was really excited late first half car to kenyan drake 31 yard connection 17-7 raiders car
through for 341 and two scores mike shanahan inducted into the broncos ring of honor today. good to see coach denver made a charge with the raiders answer third and five card of brian edwards and look at that catch big run afterwards in vegas snaps two game slide 34-24 over denver after the game derek carr talked about what it was like playing without the only head coach in the nfl he's ever known. sucks not hug and grew after a game like that, you know some of the plays we ran, you know and all that kind of stuff. he had been so fired up, you know to see his face but it is what it is, you know, we got to move forward, but definitely for those three hours. it's easy. definitely. it's not easy, but it's easier to just focus on football it certainly it's emotional for everybody right? so, i think they did a good job. there's a bunch of grown men of handling their emotions throughout the week put them in perspective when it was time to go play the game. it is a job for for all of us and the again they seem to do a really really good job with it. we'll see what goes on from here.
we'll see the consistency that we can have going on. i think that'll be the challenge for all of us. well in just two days the warriors tip off their 75th season golden state opens tuesday night in la against the lakers venice the home opener thursday night against the clippers at chase center. stephan curry seems to be getting better and better. that's a scary thought for the rest of the league. like to see the warriors shoot plenty of threes they can do that as well golden state hit 16 from downtown and fridays preseason finale the warriors did finish the preseason a perfect 5-0 and after losing the nba's inaugural play in tournament last season their sights are set on making a deep run in the playoffs this season. our expectations are definitely higher this year than they have been the last couple years and the way the league works, you know, you kind of need to step it up everybody in the locker room wants to win the championship first and foremost. whatever that takes, so we're just trying to be as prepared as possible with all these pieces we have i definitely think we're a championship caliber team good mix of guys and i feel like we can be really good defensively
and we have a bunch of guys i can you know for the ball in the hoop. so i think we'll be especially here for us. wnba finals candace parker and chicago with a chance to close out diana taurasi in phoenix and game for chicago trail by nine with four and a half to go but parker's three ties it at 72 with two minutes to go crowd fired up there and shut down stephanie. dolson's layup give chicago the lead for good on 11-0 run chicago native chance the rapper just besides himself sky win 80 to 74 their first wnba title, which was chicago native parker's goal and coming to her hometown team sharks top. think william eklund was among five players making their nhl debut last night in san jose season opening win over winnipeg beckland got his first nhl point assisting on thomas hurdles. go ahead goal the 19 year old rookie understands. he's playing with the big boys now, it's different. it's the best players in the world. so it's got to be a big difference. but yeah, like i think that better guy it's about you know on this league doing it
consistently night and night out and that's part of the challenge that we're gonna have to work on. ensure that we we got that foundation that we bring to the game every night and that structure. so dion is sad as some of us are about the giant season ending, you know sharks start. the 49ers will be back next week and the warriors and then got college. we have a lot of things. it's just unfortunate that the giant season ended. i know we got to move ahead one step in front of the other. here we got. this chris you can do it. all right. thanks. well a big art exhibit in south bay today focused on the cozier side of creativity. we'll t
