about the hope and promise unless you got to drive through it. is the super bowl going to be good for your business or no? >> i don't think so. >> reporter: we have a map of the area that will be affected during super bowl week. let's go to that. the red areas are the event space closed off to all traffic. the blue lanes that you see will be for local residents who lib and work on those streets only. and the orange areas? they will be open to emergency traffic and to vehicles that have proper credentials. so it's going to be a mess during super bowl week. probably going to be as bad as it is today or worse for the next three weeks. reporting from the embarcadero at washington, mark matthews, nbc bay area news. in the south bay super bowl preparations are speeding ahead. the banner for the big game is firmly in place on levi's stadium. that's one of many

big tulle-y fog in the bay area. starting us off with foggy skies in the north bay, 41 degrees and you need the jacket and probably not the sunglasses. thick areas of patchy dense fog and south bay will begin at 45. let's dig a little deeper on the layers of the forecast. primarily, the main reason we continue have any rainfall is high pressure off store. that's steering the storm activity off to the north. again for tomorrow, what we'll see with relatively quiet conditions aloft is this tulle-xwrrks ftulle-y fog. you can see that over to contra costa, solano with fog lingering into san francisco. we'll find patch of clouds down to the south bay. the models aren't showing that too well but i think we cannot rule this out. the low clouds hang around until about 10:30 in the morning tomorrow contra costa and solano counties.
then everybody gets blue sky. looks like a beautiful day. in terms of our next storm system, we'll need to wait and that's good news because our recent rains will be able to soak into the ground and help to mitigate any kind of flooding issues. the next storm arrives friday by 6:00 a.m. not a big storm system, but the return of a wetter weather pattern. with the storms it is a good idea to keep an eye on what's happening up across the sierra. the highest snow pack to date since 2011. so more good news continues here as we slowly chip away at the drought. 129% of average in the northern sierra, central sierra, 118%. let's take you to the micro climate forecast for tomorrow. we'll have sunshine from noon into the afternoon. that will leave us with 65 in san jose. for the peninsula, palo alto at 64. north bay, east bay and tri-valley, remember we mentioned the east bay will have that thick morning fog. so walnut creek may only get up
to 59 degrees. then back here towards the tri-valley, we're looking at also upper 50s and low 60s. so where do we go from here in the forecast? dry weather, high pressure off shore all the way through thursday. friday to sunday, rainy pattern returns, then get this, february 2nd into the 9th four possible storms which still means likely wet weather for the super bowl. we'll be here to track it. ladies? >> thank you, jeff. in need of a lifeline? the actions they want the governor to take because of the crippled crab season. unraveling a mystery in the south bay. house they hope these photos will lead to a break in a homicide case. as we wait for the next round of rain, a reminder -- >> stay on top of incoming storms by setting the home screen on your smartphone to weather on the nbc bay area app. click on the icon in the top corner of the screen, then click on the button that says set your
