6:15 pm
fourth driest winter on record for san francisco. if we add a quarter of an inch of rain to that, through tomorrow, we will still be the fourth driest winter on record for san francisco. we missed out on a lot, so perspective needs to be kept on this. more importantly it will rain on your sunday so let's talk about what you should expect to get outside. you can already tell stuff is going on, clouds are looking different today, little bit more brooding look to the sky than what we had around here. that is the view looking off to the east from our camera on top of the mark hopkins. let me show you what the system looks like out in the pacific
6:16 pm
because you can already see the clouds taking on that characteristic dip out there but it really shows up when you look at it on the water vapor. there is the storm, right there. future cast picks up on it, put a little bit of rain right in the middle of it, brings that forward and here is the general take away on why it really is sunday morning that will be the focus. there is a timeframe. sunday morning at nine a.m. and they will organized rain that will be driven in a long a cold front. here we are in late april and this will be, a cold front is where you get your best organized rain, breezy, cooler tomorrow. not going to get out of the upper 50s for pretty much for most of the bay tomorrow. concord, livermore, san jose, santa rosa, almost a 10 degrees drop for you guys tomorrow and when you add in the breeze and the rain, going to feel a lot cooler. let's look at it in detail. and there is the front. starting and the north bay first, works its way down to the heart of the bay as we get to the late morning, that gets us to 11 in the morning, noon, still pretty much over the heart of the bay and we will advance into the early afternoon. you can see some of the stragglers are just now clearing the santa clara valley, so that gets us to about 7:30 tomorrow. and that is pretty much when this winds down. notice it is still snowing in the sierra at that point.
6:17 pm
that's going to be an issue for travel in the mountains. more on that in a second. let's talk about how much you might get. member the timing is the majority, 1st half of the day sunday with better totals in the north bay pick a we could pick up a quarter of an inch of rain for many spots in the north bay and down here to the southbay and in the east bay pick of the totals are much less. that is typical. more mountain barriers to get rained down into the valley and the totals are usually going to be a little bit lighter there and the system is usually weekends by the time we have gotten that first half. if we look at the other side of the states, there is the snow in the sierra. most of that coming on sunday. that is a foot of snow on donner pass. that is i-80 pick of anybody takes a drive over the sierra, 90% of us are going over i-80. we can go highway 50. that would be. summit. those are the two main ones. anyone in the bay area would go to and from tahoe or reno or anywhere else. this is sunday. anybody likely trying to get back home on sunday is going to
6:18 pm
be in for a major surprise. very few people are expecting a foot of snow in the sierra with the winter we've had in the weather we've had lately. this is the classic scenario that catches most people offguard. you definitely need chains of their it is also the kind of scenario where there could even be closures for a time, maybe. it depends on how they do with that. winter storm warning's start tonight, 11:00 it goes until monday at 11 a.m. so that could be the most impactful part of this whole thing. luckily there were not be that many of us in it and here at home it won't be anything to worry about. morning lows tomorrow, backed into the upper 40s and low 50s, daytime highs tomorrow, this is difference pick of these numbers over here in the 50s were well into the mid and upper 60s today, but it is not only the drop on the thermometer. it is also the 20 mile an hour wind that comes through on that system that gives you wind that makes it feel cooler, so keep
6:19 pm
that in mind and now that we've talked about tomorrow feeling cooler, look at the seven-day forecast in the middle of next week. we are going to back up to the mid-80s for daytime highs, so this is a short little storm that will come through. it impacts sunday and that is it. i monday we are already rebounding but by the middle of next week we are back into full force overdrive pollinated springtime weather. all right, over to you. straightahead in sports, i'm talking football, not the nfl variety. i'm talking actual football. you know it as soccer. san jose earthquakes, they had a

you could seat in the clouds here and if we look at high def doppler, the rain doesn't show up a whole lot just yet but it is out there way off the coast of northern most california. here is what it looks like at home now looking for the top of the mark hopkins pick of this is what it looks like write down 880. plenty of clouds out here and in the tri-valley. these clouds of the leading edge that kept everybody pretty much in the same spot temperature wise today. we all came within just a few degrees above or below of 60. tomorrow many of us will be 8 to 10 degrees cooler. won't get out of the mid to upper 50s for daytime highs today for many inland spot. that will be the coolest you've been in weeks. that is the storm and if we look at it on the future cast and just get specific and timeout the details, that is when the best of the rain begins. that is about 8:00 tomorrow. think of within an hour or so of sunrise tomorrow that organize cold front right there, that starts to come into the north bay first early in the morning and by the time we got him to 11 a.m., noon, it is down about the heart of the bay, coming over the golden gate. and then he gets down into the southbay by the time we get into the early afternoon you
6:53 pm
can still see that organized line right there. but it is far weaker by the time it gets down here. still going to get rain in the southbay but we will get more in the north bay and then an interesting aspect, by the time we got into tomorrow afternoon, and most of the storms ave cleared the bay area, there is an area of concern for anybody who will be in the central valley tomorrow, basically more so the sacramento valley the san joaquin valley. anybody going up five. everywhere in red here. there is an increase risk for thunderstorms as the system comes through, just the way the wind gets funneled and twisted and turned through the sacramento valley. you can get a lot of areas where the wind convergent just the right way up there. this time of year, we cannot only get thunderstorms, but maybe even of those weak tornadoes that we see almost regularly now. with everybody having phones. tomorrow would be the first day of the season where that could be a possibility. but back here at home that is
6:54 pm
not a risk for us. and there is rain, about a quarter of an inch of rain falling for much of the north bay. watch how much lower the numbers are in the southbay. very typical, probably a 10th of an inch or less and the snow in the sierra will be good. but it will be very bad for anybody trying to travel across the sierra on sunday. look at the close of you. almost a foot of snow in donner pass, foot of snow at echo summit, 80 and 50. anybody traveling between the bay area, tahoe, reno, that is how you've got to go. so on sunday, this is going to catch a lot of people off guard. i mean, a lot of people are not about a foot of snow falling on i-80, the way things have gone for the last several weeks. so just be aware of that and make sure anybody you know who is traveling in the sierra knows this. sunday, not a good time. there will be delays. morning lows in the 50s, daytime highs not getting out of the 50s and the seven-day forecast are mid-80s. by the time we get past this look at the second half
