7:43 am
anywhere from 100% to 150% of average. out towards the north bay. we will be adding to these totals through the next couple of days. cut-off low formed offshore. this will slowly spin on the coastline. looks like probably all the way through sunday afternoon. this low sits to the west. we will continue to see these little batches of showers come rotating through with some cold air inland. this is good enough to bring some low snow levels, maybe near 3,000 feet in a few spots over the next couple of days. maybe locally lower in some of those wind-sheltered valleys further inland for sunday. we will finally see this low track inland. this will bring in the heavier rain on sunday morning. things will turn a bit more dry by the time we get into monday afternoon and all that moisture heads off to the east. during the day today, we will see a few scattered showers at times. the rain likely filling in once again as we head into sunday morning and changing back to showers as we head into sunday afternoon and rainfall totals between now, let's say, and monday, may get up to half an
7:44 am
inch. probably an inch or two around the coastal mountains. here is the interesting part. obviously, snow for the sierra. we will be watching lake county and sonoma county and napa county. some of the higher elevations may get a dusting of snow with some of the chilly air in place around the bay area. high temperatures during the day are going to have a tough time climbing out of the 50s. what you will find around the north and east bay valleys are high temperatures in the 40s in a few spots. we will be watching some of the north bay hilltops for a chance of snow in a few areas. otherwise, chilly showers at times. not a complete washout of a weekend. when the sun breaks through, it is going to be chilly. we are seeing highs in the 50s to the beginning of next week. we will see the showers shutting down temporarily on monday. a break in the action through the middle part of the week and more showers dropping in as you approach thursday and friday. that's a look at your first seven-day forecast of 2011. make it a great saturday and

7:47 am
7:48 am
new year's holiday means the highway patrol is out in force cracking down on people getting out there drunk. trent of the highway force joins us this morning. this is maximum enforcement? >> yeah. our enforcement period will continue on through sunday at midnight. so far, things have been very disappointing. there were approximately 60 people arrested for dui and there were four fatal traffic collisions here in the bay area. so we are very disappointed by that number. >> what do you think -- have we done anything differently to get the message across this year versus years in the past? >> well, you know, armed enforcement efforts along with our education efforts are continuously ongoing. we try to do everything we can to inform people about the dangers of drinking and driving. when you mix drinking and driving, usually, it ends up in death. so for these four families here in the bay area, for the rest of
7:49 am
their lives, they are going to associate new year's 2011 with the death of a loved one and so that's the kind of things we try to prevent during these holiday seasons. >> i know as most of us drive around the bay area on the roadways, you tend to tap the brakes and pay closer attention. tell us what maximum enforcement mean? you want people to pay attention and shape up for longer than a couple of minutes. >> maximum enforcement period means we will have all available officers working. that means there is going to be a strong presence in the fact that you are going to see a lot of officers driving and on traffic stops. it is a combination of enforcement as well as service. with the overnight rain, there was an increase of calls for service due to people crashing or spreading out because of the wet roadway. it is important we get out there as quickly as possible to remove the cars from the road and get
7:50 am
people out of harm's way. the big picture is, we want people to remember that. if you are irresponsible and you drink and drive, there is a strong possibility you could end up killing yourself or killing someone else. we just want people to celebrate and just do it responsibly. >> like you said, that's already happened four times around the bay area. napa, san francisco, san jose and dublin, fatal alcohol-related crashes. hopefully, that will be the last of what we see. thank you very much for joining us this morning. >> happy new year. >> happy new year. let's take a look at some of our top stories around the bay area. several people are recovering after a fire ripped through an apartment building in san francisco. the two-alarm fire forced fire fighters to evacuate that building just before 1:30 this morning. just nine minutes after midnight, one person was killed and another critically injured after a shooting outside an apartment complex at 3150 high street in oakland. so far, no arrests have been made. coming up next on "today in
