joint planning. our meteorologists johns for able always keeping us informed you talking about. potentially some water droplets on a second happen. maybe, maybe not done so yet parts of the bay area. definitely looking at that potential >> really not something that's going to be super widespread mostly south bay and inland east bay are tapping into just enough of that energy. that is remaining pretty isolated to the central coast. the central valley. the sierra foothills and then up into the sierra nevada. that's where your best chance of snowfall is already seeing some of that up in air this morning. you knew what the golden gate bridge right now is clear enough. any sort of cloud cover. we have a sitting above the bay. we do have some dense valley fog in spots but it's just the opposite of a coastal fog, rather, it's our inland valleys that will be looking at the potential of some fog this morning, which will certainly be keeping an eye on. where are we at with rainfall right now, what we do have some showers sitting just southeast of santa cruz as well as into far eastern portions of contra, costa and
alameda counties. really us here in the bay area we're dry compared to our neighbors out towards the central valley. the sierra foothills and then elsewhere across the state. we've also seen some energy resurging that includes southern california, the eastern deserts and especially the sierra nevada today. going to be an active one with snowfall falling at those higher elevations of very welcome change of pace specially around sequoia national park where we are still seeing that fire burning around those ancient sequoia trees, low pressure area moving across the region. contributing to the cloudiness contributing to the cool feel as well as any chances of rainfall. we're going to see today. you see how futurecast really shows any chance of rain staying pretty isolated. 2 areas of the south bay in the inland east bay better chances of rain for our neighbors out further inland like in the sierra foothills and then that snowfall continuing in the sierra nevada by 08:00am still a couple of sprinkles in the doablo cease to san jose. but we really start to clear out for much of the bay area by the afternoon and sunshine overhead for us. still rain and snow in the sierra. we see
a resurgence of cloud cover during overnight hours. a few sprinkles possible during a predawn hours before the sun comes up tomorrow morning that the rest of your day saturday looks to be gorgeous and crystal clear with high temperatures saturday as well as into sunday climbing into the 70's under all the sunshine. where are we going to be out today will certainly not talking nearly as warm temperatures as we're about to be this weekend. daytime highs at the coast in the 50's to 60's and almost all of the rest of us. barely into the 60's for some spots like mountain view only at 62 today. well, san jose at 64 campbell, you'll be at 65 degrees. fremont hayward eventually up to oakland in the 60's with the livermore at 63 concord. walnut creek 68 degrees for your highs. some of our warmest temperatures in fairfield and vacaville. only reaching 69 degrees. but be sure you're there as well. one 70 on the map today. so when i say almost all of us in the 60's. i mean, it. sandra fell
at 70 degrees. and you are are low to spot doing so tomorrow's temperatures in sunday's for that matter. do rise into the 70's for more and more of the bay. it is going to be a beautiful fleet week weekend. then comes monday, temperatures or don't like that. but winds will pick up and pick up in a very dramatic way contributing to dry humidity and heightened fire danger on into monday and tuesday. so we may be cooling down. we may have chances of sprinkles, but we're not out of the woods quite yet. as far as fire season goes, john, thank you for that. all right. let's get a look at your bridges heading from the east bay into the city a little under 11 minutes. >> for your drive time. the of the bay bridge, the san mateo bridge as you're heading across towards the peninsula. you can make that drive in a little under 13. no major issues or delays along the richmond sandra fell bridge still pretty quiet. not seen any cars. goes one coming along a little under 9 minutes and the golden gate bridge you got clear skies today. so 20 minutes as you're heading into the city. although san
francisco is lifting its indoor mask mandate next friday. it does not apply to restaurants and bars. however, some bar owners say those businesses will still benefit from the new rule. >> a lot of the bars are located downtown and are out by their fingertips right you know, even post covid know that, you know, downtown is a ghost town still so there's some optimism here that this may bring some customers back to the downtown area. >> health officials say bars and restaurants are not included because they are areas where different household are mixing people already spent some time on mask while eating and drinking. the california nurses association is not happy with the announcement made on lifting the indoor mask mandate. the nursing union put out a statement condemning that decision saying in part, quote, this announcement by bay area health officials basically says they're ok with dropping out of the race to get covid under control before we have even near the finish line.

next year. violating that rule can result in a fine of several $100 and even jail time. the berkeley unified school district board of education has unanimously approved a vaccine mandate for students starting january. 3rd, all students, 12 and older must either be fully vaccinated against covid or get tested weekly on campus. the policy will also require full vaccination or weekly testing for students between ages. 5, an 11 4 months after the fda grants. the vaccine. emergency use authorization. happening now, flu cases are on the rise across the united states and public health experts are urging people to get the flu shot so we can avoid the possibility of a twindemic with covid and the flu cdc director rochelle in sky, got her flu shot as the cameras were rolling and she says it's important to get the shot before the flu season peaks. this winter. even if you might be experiencing so-called vaccine fatigue.
>> i get it. we are all tired of not talking about vaccines. i get that we are all doing our best to protect their health and the health of our families. i also want to make sure we all get it. that we don't get how serious flu illness can be. >> flu cases dropped to historically low levels last year. largely due to masking and the other precautions against covid. the doctors war with schools and businesses. re opening travel resuming and the lifting of mask mandates. the flu could make a comeback. you can get the flu shot and the covid vaccine. the same time. coming up next on the kron 4 morning news, brian laundrie's father joins in on the search for his son. >> the latest on the manhunt.
