>> welcome back. 7.43 here on this sunday morning. trying to get you ready for another wet week ahead. dave spahr has got all the details on when that rain is going to come into the bay area. hey, good morning to welcome morning, everybody. in the rain is going to be a part of this forecast into next week. only thing is the intensity won't be as grand as what we've seen from before. but we had a good dosing already. so long as we keep it calm. and that's good news. even also a nice sunday before we get there. lots of sunshine with clear skies to give us the frost this morning. >> sun is just starting to filter into portions of the east bay shoreline. temperature. check. still a cold 27 up there to santa rosa livermore. 28 32 antioch resting right there at the freezing mark with some 30's on the east bay shoreline like freeman 3033, for example, in oakland. what's going to
7:45 am
happen up in the mountains. it looks like to going get some more snow going on here. both on monday and tuesday taking a breather on wednesday. but there is a winter weather advisory still being posted until 7 on tuesday. but coupled with this will be a high wind watch. as you can see, no high wind watch means the likelihood that that may be upgraded to a high wind warning and expecting winds to become in some locations. hurricane strength. so if you have maybe the week off or something and jump up there home. maybe snow won't be your biggest problem but will be winds going forward. look at futurecast for today looks pretty good. a few little scattered clouds thrown in there. but here comes that first opportunity for rain on monday. it's kind of scattered about here. again, you can see the intensity not as great as we've been through and a little bit is expected on tuesday. here's the bigger plan, though that's early in the week. a little break. but on tuesday, wednesday, maybe a break cooking in here and then by friday, one last hit. and then we take kind of a breather into the weekend. but notice how the pattern of a lot of this is going on. it's now shifting a little north.
7:46 am
that's kind of an ominous way. we've been seeing a lot of these winter storms in previous years that gave us the ground to begin with. where rainfall amounts were somewhat modest as it was going up and around us. but we've got a good dosing dust far. so as long as we keep the general trend, we should be in better shape. 54 san francisco and mid to lower 50's along the coast. not a lot of mercury moving even with all of a sudden we have today looks like mid 50's also down to the south in the south bay. we're also looking at some frost this morning 58 for san jose 57 santa clara cupertino 56 mid 50's east bay shoreline also tri valley. remember, those numbers are pretty cold this morning. the climb for the freezing mark up to the 50's. so that's a lot of work there. 52 for a walnut creek, 51 for berkeley, but they hold 5149 fairfield and napa sonoma. 51 going on for santa rosa rain jumping in and out of this forecast will be most apparent on monday, tuesday. kind of a breather wednesday a little bit more is expected into friday. we should hold nicely into the weekend and our lows. meanwhile, not too
7:47 am
bad into the 40's and even some 50's along the coast. >> for your health this morning making new year's resolutions their tradition for many people. but the reality is only 8% of people will actually achieve those resolutions. 80% of these resolutions fail by the month of february. if your new year's resolutions have been a source of failure year after year. our health expert walk is here. she's going to give us some helpful tips to make them stick in 2022 karen, thank you so much you know, helping us kind of frame some sort of habits making sure that we stick to these new year's resolutions. mine always fail one of the 80%. yes, i i maybe i try too hard. i don't know. this if if anyone was watching our new year's eve show. we air different resolutions that all of us here at kron. 4 have
7:48 am
mine is budget you know, financially because that's right. tend to have a lot of issues. i i am haven't started anything just yet to try and do that, but maybe after today and these tips will be able to. what's the first step. karen. >> the first one is to get 7 hours of sleep. and i say that because you cannot form new habits when you're tired, period. it just doesn't work. so getting 7 hours. preferably 7 hours of uninterrupted sleep. but here's what happens. your brain sees habits. so that it doesn't have to work so hard. think about the time when you first learned had to brush your teeth and all those steps involved in brushing your teeth. and then now you don't even have to think about it. so the brain works that way seesehabits so that it doesn't have to work is hard and it can store information for other things and it could move on. but when you're tired,
7:49 am
those habits, while they're always they're they're never going to be extinguished. they're always kind of lurking in the background. so when you're really tired, it's going to want to follow the path of least resistance and usually it's that those old established habits. so sure if your brain is going to want to resist change. it likes routine. so in order to create a new routine. you need to be full of energy. yeah. and not worn out. it all starts with sleep. i think a really good tip here that you have be specific, which i think sometimes people are little broad about their resolutions. we're saying definitely got to be specific this year. >> yeah, because lot resolutions fail because they're just too and when they're vague, they don't really promote commitment. you know, one thing i often here as well. i'm going to exercise more this year. well, you know, instead say, ok, i'm going to exercise monday. wednesday friday. 30 minutes on the treadmill 3 miles an

hour. etcetera etcetera something very specific because when you just say i'm an exercise more. you can easily say, today is not that day. i'm going to exercise more. so it's easy to to fall back. and so be very specific and what you want to do. so i guess with a if you have like a financial resolution like i do maybe set a number for how much you want to save. >> per week or per month. something like that. >> yeah. and also be very specific on what days you're going to review your budget. so okay. >> specifics it says also monitoring your progress is really good. yes. monitoring your progress because progress is a positive reward. whether you're moving forward and you might have some slips backwards. but it still you're progressing towards your goal. >> and the brain likes reward because it sees reward as well
7:51 am
when it's when something very positive it's getting rewarded, then it's going to know which habits it wants to repeat, ok, so make sure you're you're embracing everything i feel more energetic i'm making more money i just feel like i'm i'm more accomplished. those are all rewards positive rewards in the brain like and also this next one committing to 30 days basically giving yourself just smaller time increments as opposed to looking at the year as a whole right. >> yeah. for for 2 reasons. you know, you want to take that 365 days and and put it into a doable chunk of 30 days. but i also. >> suggest committing for 30 days every day. so whether it's exercising managing your budget. you look at it every single day. you don't have to do it with the same intensity every single day but just do it every single day because the goal is consistency okay.
7:52 am
and of one thing here, i would really like you say own it becauae a lot of times you kind of maybe said a resolution based on what someone else wants you to do and you got to do something for yourself here. >> yes, that really is resolution is at somebody else's city or so. and this is where i say watch your language and when somebody else as well, you know, you need to lose weight or this in and you're always saying i need to i should do this and and that doesn't mean that you own it. someone else putting some parameters on you. so instead say i want to exercise. i want to manage my money, better. yeah, it is. i want to not i need to i have to so watch your language sorry, shut. okay. thank you. thank for that. and finally keep it simple. >> i think that's something we can take in every aspect of our lives. keep it simple. >> that's right. because we get so enthusiastic the beginning of the year and and
7:53 am
sometimes those those goals and resolutions are little bit complicated. so, you know, keep it simple of its riding your bike every day. don't don't tell yourself. let me to go right on the iron horse trail every day because that reqpires loading up your bike and do and that. but instead of just get on your bike and ride around the neighborhood. so just keep those thing says simple because that will make it sustainable well. and with all of these it really does show that. >> even if you've failed in the past, it's never a bad idea to make a resolution each year. >> that's right. because that these resolutions usually. >> they're more about improving yourself and and that keeps you positive it also gives you some sense of hope and optimism. always a good thing to set some new resolutions every year. all right, thank you so much for joining us this morning. happy new year to you. that same to you to know. well, we'll see you next week. all right. that they will be right back. still

on tuesday. 07:00am the high wind watch. it is. that's to be upgraded later on to maybe a high wind warning. that's so if you're maybe going to be heading out. there may be getting a try not to have as much snow. the maybe to deal with the terms of that is a factor. but you have some winds definitely with that. we do see some scattered clouds. today's forecast into tonight. and then we get to tomorrow. here comes the rain favoring the north bay before it starts spreading out throughout the day monday in the tuesday as well to be another dose for tuesday taking a breather and then more to happen. let's get this. it's too. this is the first early systems break. then some more looks like by maybe wednesday and then friday is another day to look for another dose of rain. these don't have the intensity that their their predecessors had that's good because we already had a lot of rain. another break. looks like it happens into next week. notice the pattern here kind of going up and around us that we're so familiar with from the drought that we've had recently 54 san francisco mid-fifties cover us at the coast bayside also in
8:45 am
mid-fifties own typical with the winter months. we don't see a lot of temperature movement even with a lot of sun, 56 for palo alto in the south bay 58 san jose 56 for cupertino mid 50's along the east bay shoreline and for tri valley. looks like 52 for walnut creek, 51 for berkeley. the lay hold 51 49 going on for napa in 51 for santa rosa 7 day forecast here. it is a monday tuesday. that's probably the best days to look for rain on that friday. also, another dose should be clearing up in time for next weekend. by the way, and for our lows, they behave themselves to won't looks like no more frosty's coming our way as temperatures for lows will be in the 40's with some 50's hugging the coast. >> for your health this morning making new year's resolutions their tradition for many people. but the reality is only 8% of people will actually achieve those resolutions. 80% of these resolutions fail by the month of february. if your new year's resolutions have been a
8:46 am
source of failure year after year. our health expert walk is here. she's going to give us some helpful tips to make them stick in 2022 karen, thank you so much you know, helping us kind of frame some sort of habits making sure that we stick to these new year's resolutions. mine always fail one of the 80%. yes, i i maybe i try too hard. i don't know. this if if anyone was watching our new year's eve show. we air different resolutions that all of us here at kron. 4 have mine is budget you know, financially because that's right. tend to have a lot of issues. i i am haven't started anything just yet to try and do that, but maybe after today and these tips will be able to. what's the first step. karen. >> the first one is to get 7 hours of sleep. and i say that because you cannot form new habits when you're tired,
8:47 am
perry it. it just doesn't work. so getting 7 hours. preferably 7 hours of uninterrupted sleep. but here's what happens. your brain sees habits. so that it doesn't have to work so hard. think about the time when you first lynn had to brush your teeth and all those steps involved in brushing your teeth. and then now you don't even have to think about it. so the brain works that way sees habits so that it doesn't have to work is hard and it can store information for other things and it could move on. but when you're tired, those habits, while they're always they're they're never going to be extinguished. they're always kind of lurking in the background. so when you're really tired, it's going to want to follow the path of least resistance and usually it's that those old established habits. so make sure if your brain is going to want to resist change. it likes routine. so in order to create a new routine. you need to be full of energy. yeah.
8:48 am
and not worn out. it all starts with sleep. i think really good tip here that you have be specific, which i think sometimes people are a little broad about their resolutions. we're saying definitely got to be specific this year. >> yeah, because a lot of resolutions fail because they're just who they and when they're vague, they don't really promote commitment. you know, one thing i often here as well. i'm going to exercise more this year. well, you know, instead say, ok, i'm going to exercise monday. wednesday friday. 30 minutes on the treadmill 3 miles an hour. etcetera etcetera something very specific because when you just say i'm an exercise more. you can easily say, today is not that day. i'm going to exercise more. so it's easy to to fall back. and so be very specific and what you want to do. so i guess with a if you have like a financial resolution like i do maybe set a number for how much you want to save. >> per week or per month. something like that.
8:49 am
>> yeah. and also be very specific on what days you're going to review your budget. so okay. >> specifics it says also monitoring your progress is really good. yes. monitoring your progress because progress is a positive reward. whether you're moving forward and you might have some slips backwards. but it still you're progressing towards your goal. >> and the brain likes reward because it sees reward as well when it's when something very positive it's getting rewarded, then it's going to know which habits it wants to repeat, ok, so make sure you're you're embracing everything i feel more energetic i'm making more money i just feel like i'm i'm more accomplished. those are all rewards positive rewards in the brain like and also
8:50 am
this next one committing to 30 days basically giving yourself just smaller time increments as opposed to looking at the year as a whole right. >> yeah. for for 2 reasons. you know, you want to take that 365 days and and put it into a doable chunk of 30 days. but i also. >> suggest committing for 30 days every day. so whether it's exercising managing your budget. you look at it every single day. you don't have to do it with the same intensity every single day but just do it every single day because the goal is consistency okay. and of one thing here, i would really like you say own it because a lot of times you kind of maybe said a resolution based on what someone else wants you to do. and you got to do something for yourself here. >> yes, that really is resolution is at somebody else's city or so. and this is where i say watch your language institute when somebody else as well. you
8:51 am
know, you need to lose weight or this in and you're always saying i need to i should do this and and that doesn't mean that you own it. someone else putting some parameters on you. so instead say i want to exercise. i want to manage my money, better. yeah, it is. i want to not i need to i have to so watch your language. sorry, shut. okay. thank you. thank for that. and finally keep it simple. >> i think that's something we can take in every aspect of our lives. keep it simple. >> that's right. because we get so enthusiastic the beginning of the year. >> and and sometimes those those goals and resolutions are a little bit complicated. so, you know, keep it simple of its riding your bike every day. don't. don't tell yourself. let me to go right on the iron horse trail every day because that requires loading up your bike and do and that. but instead of just get on your bike and ride around the neighborhood. so just keep those thing says simple because that will make it sustainable well. and with
8:52 am
all of these it really does show that even if you've failed in the past, it's never a bad idea to make a resolution each year. >> that's right. because that these resolutions usually. >> they're more about improving yourself. and in that keeps you positive it also gives you some sense of hope and optimism. always a good thing to set some new resolutions every year. all right, thank you so much for joining us this morning. happy new year to you. that same to you to know. we'll see you next week. all right. that
