area of high pressure just offshore. that stays in place tomorrow to keep us rain free. but you can see in the morning hours, check out how dense this fog is. this is the opposite of what we normally see. it's not the classic san francisco fog rolling in. it's that thick central valley fog that we think is going to come on in here throughout the contra costa and down towards san francisco tomorrow morning. that's where it will be the thickest. it likely could hang out until about 10:30 in the morning. after that, we'll get some sunny skies tomorrow. it looks like a great afternoon. now beyond this, our next chance of rainfall will have to wait for it. it doesn't look to arrive until friday. and we will likely see the most accumulating rainfall by saturday and also on sunday. now we've had a lot of back-to-back storms. november, december, and also in january. we've been updating you on the snow. and new numbers coming in today. the highest snowpack to date since 2011. so let's go ahead and look at how great the numbers are.
you can see across the northern sierra, 129% of average. central sierra, including lake tahoe, 118%. and the southern sierra, 99%. last year at this time, just 27% of average. so definitely making some headway here. we just need to keep with some of these colder storms to continue that snowpack to stack up. for tomorrow's forecast, some of the warmest weather in the south bay. you're not expecting too much thick fog. the stars still have plenty of time to warm up. 65 in san jose. 67 in cupertino. the coast line, a chilly 58. palo alto, 64. 59 in the marina in san francisco and 51 in the financial district. north bay, east bay, and trivalley, fog in the morning. that will be slow to push out. likely begagain you will not se temperatures jump up too much tomorrow. the trivalley will top out at 59
in livermore. winding things out, dry weather on friday with high pressure off shore. rain will return. and possibly february 2 to the 9, a potential wetter weather pattern. there's no better way to track the storms than our nbc bay area app. when rough weather hits the bay area, you can stay updated with personal alerts on your smartphone or ipad. go to our app and click on the nbc bay area icon in the left corner. then hit the gear button. on the dropdown menu, touch the alert settings. from there, choose from a list of weather events you want to know about. for instance, you can get alerts for lightning or alerts for when a dangerous storm is approaching your neighborhood. that's how you stay informed with the nbc bay area app. >> and turning on the lighting, it's super cool. i have already engaged that on my phone. and within seconds of it happening within a radius of

oracle. for the spurs- it s just a major let down.the dubs e they've treated most ther tes this season. it was billed as a showdown in oracle for the spurs, a major letdown. two best teams in the nba, two best records. didn't look like it. jay-z was there. drake at courtside. wonder how they got those tickets? the mvp was there as well. and no tim duncan for the spurs. i don't know if it would have mattered. early first. stephen curry getting the hand off from bogut. i'll shoot it from there, thank

victory. we're going to face them three times this season. we have other teams to get through. but for us, this is a big win. the emotions of the game and the build-up, for us to back it up with some great play. it says a lot about our mentality right now. >> the 37 curry scored the most he's scored against the spurs in his career. they snapp san antonio's 37-gam win streak. warriors and spurs meet again in march. a lot of time until then. that one might be closer than this one, but you never know. that will do it for sports. more news after the break. thank you.

impressive feat. especially ify. a bloodhound in alabama named okay. running a half marathon is an impressive feat, especially if you're a blood hound. that's right, a bloodhound in alabama somehow escaped a backyard and for some reason ran up to the starting line of a half marathon, where it was set to begin and decided, oh, i'll join them. the runners took off, and she did too. she led the pack for a while and
eventually crossed the finish line in seventh place with a time of one hour and 30 minutes. the owner says the dog is usually laid back and lazy. next year's race will be renaped the hound dog half, and a special prize will be given to the seventh place finisher just like the bloodhound. >> so cute. i can see that as a trend. like all the marathon runners taking their dogs along with them. >> i think that would be a disaster. >> it could be. yeah. >> one dog is good enough. that will do it for us. we hope to see you tomorrow. bye-bye.
