6:16 am
it looks better on futurecast. you can watch the line of organized rain march its way across the bay area from north to south which you can usually do with most systems. at this point it is working over the golden gate, across places like richmond bridge, bay bridge. it's not heavy by the time it gets there, but it is later in the morning really within about the next hour. so not that much later. it really kind of falls apart before it gets to the south bay and tri valley. you will get a few drops. you just won't get a lot out of it. late afternoon and early evening, back edge of the clouds clear. we get an opening in the sky for the first time and you will see plenty blue sky in the north bay today. once we get to the late afternoon and early evening, skies will clear out for everybody else. it will be nice in that regard because we've had two solid days or a little more than that where we haven't seen the sky.
6:17 am
it will be nice to see it come back after the slight rain, about a tenth of a than inch. daytime highs go to the upper 50s. light snow in the sierra falls with this, enough so that there is a winter weather advisory until 6:00 this evening. we can watch snow fall accumulate, just not in significant ways. we'll take it. this is the last one from here on out, daytime highs in mid to upper 50s with a few high clouds. we'll be in a break from storms for a while after today's weak rainmaker. how is the drive taking all this so far? so far it's doing okay. it's friday. we see less cars on the road way. that will help as people get out and about this morning for the commute. richmond san rafael bridge, about 15, 20 minutes ago we had a bit of brake lights. that's not the case. things have improved as they're cleared this crash and it's better as you work the span to

scene a major disaster. designation unlocks federal relief funding. a massive snowstorm winding up the eastern half of the country from tennessee to massachusetts. spin outs and crashes litter the section of highway in western ken yesterday. in nashville there was snow fall of other than six inches shattering a decades' old record. outside washington, dc there is concern cars will be stranded once again on main highways. 6:46 is the time. let's get a check of our weather and also traffic. >> darren joins us now. how is it looking? it's light rain on our roadways. to compare the story we were looking at, it's a lot easier. still this will have an impact. in the north bay we have been getting light rain. a couple hundredths of an inch of rain for communities up and down 101, that's the latest look at high def doppler. futurecast sees it, play it forward and watch showers slowly fall apart as they slowly march south across the rest of the bay.
6:47 am
we'll see rain across the golden gate within the next hour or two and from there, there is less and less rain so by the time we get to south bay there is not a lot left. we will get breaks in the clouds today which will be nice. by the time we have gotten to noon we are looking at sunshine in the north bay. once we get to the afternoon, back edge of the clouds will clear out for everybody else. rainfall totals are light, get a tenth of an inch of rain out of this for the most part. be aware of slick roads for the morning commute. daytime highs go to the upper 50s today with more blue sky. it will snow in the sierra. we'll pick up another half foot and that's why we've got another winter weather advisory until 6:00. you see the snow level down perhaps as low as 5,000 feet. since we are reporting more snow in the sierra in the mountains we can look at a snow report that's got excellent news in terms of what we have stored up there not only for water content but also to ski on. those are numbers out of kirk wood.
6:48 am
the seven-day forecast, this is the only day with rain on it, light showers we we tracked, comes to an end by the second half of the day if they last that long. for the rest of the seven day it's just a few clouds, daytime highs in mid to upper 50s. you see that across micro climates. no other significant opportunities for rain coming our way. the only thing to keep in mind for the weekend is the morning, tomorrow morning, sunday morning, we might develop some patchy fog. it shouldn't be too cold tomorrow. let's see how the drive is doing. gianna what are you tracking? i am just tracking some slight brake lights as you work towards bay bridge toll plaza and again through south bay if you are headed out of morgan hill. other than that, it is definitely friday light which is good news since we are going to see wet weather which makes for a slick commute. commuting out of the north bay, things are at the limit with no
