i want to start off with an overview so you can kind of digest what's happening. i know a lot of you are just trying to get back in from the holiday and you've got a lot coming at you. you have work tomorrow and then you also have this wet weather. so, here it is. rainfall returning tuesday and wednesday, that's our first storm. then the second storm this week arriving by saturday and sunday, possibly some heavier rain that could heighten our flooding concern, especially by sunday if everything stays on track. so, as far as tomorrow morning's forecast goes, i do think we'll have the chance here, some rainfall. doesn't look extremely heavy for the morning commute, but it will start off chilly. 44 in the south bay, 42 in the peninsula, tri-valley 39. for the east bay 44, s.f. 48, and for the north bay we'll begin with a cold 38 degrees. so, the time line on this really will help to display kind of what you're going to face here when you're off on that commute tomorrow morning. 5:00, some scattered rainfall here throughout the bay area. we'll start to see things pickup by 10:00 in the morning consistently in the north bay, and then gradually dropping down
to the south bay. may not have too much of that point down here in san jose. it's really going to be all about the evening commute on tuesday. that looks like when it's going to be the worst when you're out on the roadways. not only the heavy rainfall here, but again that snow for the sierra. then as we head throughout wednesday it will be more of a scattered rainfall situation in the morning and that will continue into wednesday evening as well. what about the rainfall totals? a lot of colors on this map. it's just the way the micro climates go here. many of us get different totals. look at the key up here and find your city on the map and coordinate it with the color. you can see up into the north bay a lot of red and also purple. i think we're really good for one to 2 inches in the north bay. again, the next two days with that storm system. peninsula and east bay plenty of orange and red so three quarters of an inch to about one and a quarter inch. for the south bay and san jose, three quarters of an inch. you can see a lot of that orange here. santa cruz mountains are in the purple zone so certainly two to 3 inches on tap, possibly even a little bit more. for the sierra, one to 2 feet of
snow at lake level, higher elevations may hit three to possibly 4 feet in the next 72 hours. and we're looking at at least a foot of snow up towards mount shasta. on the extended forecast, again, rainfall tuesday and also wednesday, dry thursday and friday, then we get another storm saturday and sunday. if everything stays on track, sunday would be the day we're watching out for that flooding concern. for the interior valleys, your rainfall chances stay the same and it's going g to be jacket weather the next several days with temperatures in the 50s to low 60s. with this rain moving in, we have storm ranger. if you haven't heard about t check out the hashtag on twitter, #storm rainer. it's our mobile doppler radar on wheels. we can move it to wherever the storms go. the reason why it's more accurate, i know janelle and terry, you know about this. the folks at home, it's closer down to where everybody lives. when that scan moves around, it's able to get a true depiction of how heavy the
rainfall is, and it is a lot more accurate than any of the other doppler radars in the bay area. >> all right. >> fired up. >> jeff, thanks so much. a nanny cam shows a dresser falling right on top of a todd letter. tonight there is more to t. the message the child mother wants every parent to hear. >> but first happening now on twitter, the new governor of puerto rico was sworn in today and he is vowing to immediately push for state hood. many have argued the island's political status has contributed to its decade long economic crisis. sea world will hold the last orca show wednesday. it bans the breeding of killer whales. more news in a moment. we live in a pick and choose world. choose.

very long leash in terms of making decisions. there are no sacred cows here, whether that's in the personnel departments on the coaching staff, in the locker room, they need to be able to reestablish a championship culture, and that's going to take time to reestablish a championship culture. >> reporter: a sentiment ekholmed today by the veterans who were clearing out their lockers despite the losing, the locker room didn't fracture, but it wasn't conducive to winning games either. >> there are a few guys that could spend more time in the play book. i think there are a lot of mental errors throughout the year that made it tough on us in certain positions. so, you like some of the older guys to step up and hold guys accountable. i think that would be a big key going forward, accountability with players. >> we have some guys in here, you know, bringing it every day, a professional approach every day. and a winning attitude. >> reporter: colin resch, nbc bay area. >> new day dawns.
