will bring snow showers. take a look, expecting up to nine inches in places like donner, kirkwood, four inches at w blue canyon. and there's a reason for this. if you look at the sierra snow pack, it was 40% at this time last year. the snow pack today is 95% of average statewide, and we can use more of that snow to help our water supply. obviously we defend on the snow pack. and a beautiful view, if you are heading here, i want to show you the forecast for tahoe. cold morning, sunny afternoon tomorrow. wind gusts up to 90 miles per hour, but a chance of snow on saturday and that sunday storm is going to bring in rain and snow late in the night, going into monday. that's when we'll be adding some of that fresh powder. first thing in the morning, watch out for patches of dense fog around the delta. and in the north bay and valleys, chilly, down to freezing in napa.
33 in santa rosa. many areas in the 40s around the bay and coast, mid 30s inland. so you'll have to watch out for frosty conditions in spots and some fog. don't leave home without your winter coats and jackets. tomorrow amfternoon, low to mid 60s. tomorrow afternoon, it's just wall-to-wall of sunshine. then the level one system comes in, not going to produce a lot. scattered light showers under a half an inch and breezy at times. i want to show you the hour by hour forecast. 9:30, friday morning, a couple of sprinkles. same thing at 11:30 in the mrning. we wait for that band of rain to develop. in the north bay, they'll see some rain at 3:00 p.m., but then that front starts to fall awart as hit falls apart 7:30 friday night and not amounting to a lot. this may miss some of you on friday. a few lingering showers can't be ruled out on saturday morning. for the rest of you it's dry. so i removed the storm impact
scale for saturday. i think most of your saturday will be just fine. we do have another system coming in on sunday night. rainfall totals with that friday system, a few hundredths. level two for sunday night. half an inch to an inch and a half of rain. rough and dangerous surf. gusty winds with that storm system. so that's the one we'll be watching. ak weather seven-day forecast, cold morning, mild afternoon. scattered light showers. saturday morning, north bay drops. that's about it. monday, it comes a level one. so we're getting some storms in here. that's a good thing. >> thank you, sandhya. tomorrow on "good morning
