$10,000 to help make all those wishes come true. garvin thomas, nbc bay area news. if you know of someone doing something nice for others, garvin would love to hear from you. go to our website nbcbayarea.com and search bay area proud. we have much more ahead. coming up, why a building boom in one bay area city has residents fighting with city leaders. pl plus, four armed men storm a jewelry store but a daughter's quick actions scare them away. an exclusive look at surveillance video showing how it went down.

good saturday morning, i'm meteorologist kari hall. we're taking a live look at mount tam where you had three inches of rain with the last storm system that moved through. taking a break now, but there could be more falling as we go into the afternoon today. a look at the current temperatures. a cool start in the upper 30s for the north bay as well as parts of the east bay, livermore 38 and san jose 43. the next storm system moving in really isn't all that impressive looking at the radar showing light returns and also wide spread rain moving in. we can expect a chance of showers for the north bay. it starts out as light rain. by tomorrow morning, the more potent part of that storm system moves in and the rain returns with winds gusting up to 40 miles per hour. and then in the sierra, more snow expected.

francisco as well. and the rest of the bay area for the east bay peninsula south bay not looking at a lot of showers, at least initially. then a squall line develops. it looks like heavier down pours, possibly lightning, we'll be watching out for that tomorrow morning as that moves from nort to south. then it clears out by tomorrow evening. snow expected for the sierra once again. looking at how much rain we could see. after getting over an inch of rain with the last storm system we're looking at an additional .3 of an inch. we could have an inch and a half of rain in middleton. that was affected by the valley fire, that's where we could have runoff and possibility of flooding. a live look at heavenly after getting two feet of snow, well there is nor additional snow on the way. anywhere from ten to 18 inches
above 7,000 feet. those gusty winds may top 120 miles per hour. computer models verifying we could have over 20 inches of rain. there is more of that in the forecast as we see our weather getting a little bit more active into next week. we will have a dry start to the week. then by the end of the week there could be more rain moving in. a look at all the microclimates in the next three days. mostly dry today. and then some showers moving in tomorrow. but it stays cool. we will only see the highs in the mid 50s for the next few days. thanks. we have much more ahead on "today in the bay." coming up. >> i'm sam brock. the paris climate talks almost over and world leaders seem to be on the brink of a deal. why are some calling it -- good morning, there's lots to do.
we'll start in the south bay for something that rings of the city. cable cars. in willow glen that's where the festive spirit has spread. they light the night for such a spread you can catch a cableless cable car to cruise the glen. celebrate downtown, too, where they've even updated the picture posing, special selfies with santa. selfies. that's not selfish. selfish would not be a santa thing. what is a santa thing there will be 24 holidays. there's hula dancing. strol strolling carollers. horse drawn hay rides. we'll end with the ending, the big finale of the giant mitt nora in san francisco's union square. it will cap off its 40's anniversary as well.

splashes headlines these dies. the author says talks are rigged regardless of what action countries plan on taking. is it voluntary? >> almost every country is coming forward with a pledge for what emissions objectives they're going to bring to the table. >> reporter: in other words, countries are making up their own bench marks. the good news, 150 nations are pledging. you can look at their proposals on the un website. the bad news, we're falling far short of what we need. for the better part of a decade, scientists have said a two degree rise in global temperatures is the magic number. the bare minimum we can't break to avoid catastrophic climate change. should all countries at the
paris conference keep their pledges, the world would warm on average 2.7 degrees celsius, better but no where close to the bern mark. >> this is a hopeful step. the problem is a big problem. it's not going to be easy to solve, particularly in the context of u.s. politics. >> yes. the politics. stanford environmental law expert points out 28 states have taken the obama administration to court. the justices could unravel u.s. efforts to lead on climate change. so could a future president. >> were the supreme court to strike down the regulations, were a republican administration in 2017 say to walk back from these commitments, you know, the perception that the u.s. has gotten its act together could change very quickly. >> even if the obama administration wins in court, even if the next president supports the paris plan, there is the small matter of congress.
it demands contributions from rich and poor countries. lawmakers say that money may be dead on arrival. paris offers hope of getting more countries involved in fighting climate change. the world that still behind and the world leader, u.s. is only going to be kicking and screaming. for reality check, i'm sam brock j we have much more ahead. our friends from pets in need are here. > we have much more ah. our friends from pets in need are here. > we have much more ah. our friends from pets in need are here. this morning -- some special
