5:15 pm
>> hopefully we get them back. >> we don't want people to leave but we want the butterflies to stay. >> hopefully that file footage is not all that is left. if anybody's walk through the grove, that is incredible. let's fix that problem. let's get into the forecast. i'm getting straight into the timing for sunday, there are a lot of things to talk about. this is tomorrow's rain, and as we bring this forward into tomorrow, we've gone into late morning, and it's knocking on the door. 10:00 tomorrow morning, and by the time we get into the late morning and early afternoon, here comes the rain. in the north bay first, down over the city, peninsula and east bay. then it starts to clear the south bay by the time we get past sunset. so, do you remember what the rain was like yesterday? that is pretty much exactly what this will be like.
5:16 pm
the totals are similar, meaning it is not major. and there is one added item here. i'm taking us back to just after sunset in the south bay. as that final band of rain starts to clear out, watch mount hamilton right there. a little bit of light snow. it's cold enough to get a light dusting on some higher peaks. just something cool to look at. so let's talk about rainfall totals. we pick up about 2/10 of an inch of rain for the north bay. maybe, on the high end if you are lucky and then higher amounts down in the south bay. that is sunday's rain story. when the rain clears out it will get windy on the backside of that storm. this is something you will mostly be feeling monday. sunday night into monday that north wind starts ushering in and the main impact with this besides the wind advisory with gusts up to 50 miles per hour, that will make things feel much
5:17 pm
colder. so even though monday does not have rain on it, it will feel cold when you get outside into the elements with that wind. let's look at the next storm after that. this is a big one. so we are looking at tuesday, hasn't gotten here yet but by tuesday night it has. and there is something important about the way this storm looks where we will need to look at it in a little more detail. this gets us through thursday. look at that long trail of rain. you see that thin, narrow band that reaches out to the tropics, that is an atmospheric river. that is your source of higher concentrations of water for this storm to work with. it will be rainy tuesday night through thursday night. then we get a little break on friday. then the next when it gets here into next weekend. i'm already looking at the last few days of january. there's a lot coming. i don't want to get too far ahead of myself.
5:18 pm
this is what i showed you at the top of the newscast, i will at the rainfall totals play from tuesday night into thursday night. and those are up to perhaps three inch totals for many cities in the bay area. higher amounts in the santa cruz mountains. i think we could see more than 4 inches. and that is where probably the biggest concern from this rainmaker comes into play. there will be a lot of rain focused on the santa cruz mountains southward. that brings into concern debris flows, mudslides, landslides for the burn scars. and yes, this will be a huge snow producer in the sierra. more on that as we get closer to it. so just know if you plan on traveling in the sierra from tuesday through thursday it will be a mess. and it will take you a long time to get where you want to go. so there's the rain from the big storm. there's the rain that then
