under a freeze warning and then after the freeze get ready for some flooding. we have team coverage tonight. let's start with kpix5 paul deanno. >> the potential for flooding is there. the immediate concern is tomorrow morning. it will be very coal away from the -- cold away from the valley, lows as chilly as 25 degrees. that's happening tonight. what's not happening is anything on the radar. you like a dry radar, take a peek now. it's the last time you'll see it for about a week. the first watch issued is a winter storm watch because precipitation will start as snow in the sierra, up to 2 feet of snow by saturday afternoon, but look at the snow level, all the way up to 8,000 feet. everything besides 8,000 feet in elevation will receive a foot or more of rainfall in snow melt. that's why the flooding concern is so high. futurecast says we go from sunny to cloudy. the rain begins by this time
tomorrow night, 11:00, and the steady soaking rains are there when you wake up saturday morning. it will be a weekend washout. some parts of the bay area will not get a break from the rain for 48 consecutive hours. rainfall totals and when it finally moves out coming up. tonight people staying at the thousand trails rv resort in morgan hill ordered out ahead of this weekend's monster storm. the nearby reservoir is already over 100% capacity and the creek it feeds runs directly under the park's only bridge. people sta >> because they're going to open the spillway at uvis and chances are the bridge will be overran with water and be impassable. it's understandable. you can't help mother nature. what you need is rain. >> people staying at the park have until 5 p.m. tomorrow to pack up and move. kpix5's andria borba tells us tonight bay area police are warning about the river of rain headed our way. >> we are less than 48 hours away from the storm hitting the
bay area and preparation for potential damage is already underway with few people leaving anything up to chance. with shovels, front loaders and pilot lights pressed for the atmospheric river expected to bear down on all of northern california are well underway. in santa cruz the concern is the san lorenzo river jumping it's banks. >> those areas tend to flood when we get the big, large amounts of rain in a short period of time. >> reporter: in marin county, the old stand-by, sandbags were the lesson of the day. >> leigh some room to tie it off and keep it easy to work with. so the more sand, the heavier it is. >> reporter: in years past torrential rains and driving waters have turned parking lots in healdsburg to temporary kayaking ponds with some pickup inner tubing thrown in for good
measure. outside san jose the threat of possible flooding, this video from 1997 when the merced river gurgled beyond flood stage leaving the yosemite valleyone giant lake. back in santa cruz it's not just keeping a watchful eye on the river while clearing creeks and storm drains and previous damage. >> we've had our public works crews clearing out the drains so when we do get heavy rain, it will drain properly. >> if you need sandbags, check with your local city, fire departments and hardware stores for help. andria borba, kpix5. in yuba county rain is already coming down. voluntary evacuation notices were issued in marysville where the area is prone to flooding. emergency officials expect the yuba river to reach a level of 83 feet by monday which would put it near flood stage. meanwhile heavy snow continues to fall in the sierra. it started on tuesday and by
today there was already up to 84 inches at mammoth mountain, but they're expecting the weather to get wet later on this weekend. the question tonight in oakland, who would shoot at a car with a little girl inside? the girl was hit and she's in the hospital tonight. right now police are still searching for suspects? >> reporter: they sure are. that 22-month-old girl is in stable condition here at oakland children's hospital. we don't know exactly whether this is connected to any previous shootings, but the person who shot her tonight is still on the loose. >> all we ask for is prayer, nothing but prayer. >> reporter: a plea for divine intervention tonight after an explosion of gunfire in east oakland left this woman's toddler's cousin with a gunshot wound. >> i heard shots and i heard a car squealing away. >> reporter: the 22-month-old girl was in the car with her mother in the 6600 block of outlook when a stray round hit her.
>> my heart goes out to her. it's senseless. >> reporter: police say this was a targeted shooting that came just 24 hours after the first homicide of the year in oakland. >> we always look to see is this retaliation or is this connected? we can't confirm that now, but our investigators are certainly looking in and following up to see what led up to the shooting. >> reporter: the toddler's relative denied it was retaliation, though she didn't know how she could everybody that. oakland police say the assistant police chief visited with the little girl's mother at the hospital today. the city's new police chief announced just yesterday has been briefed on the case. tonight police are cracking down, police in patrol cars and motorcycles stopping cars near olive in east oakland as part of a suppression effort all while the manhunt continues. >> and our primary concern is who is responsible for this shooting, identifying them and then locating them. >> reporter: now there was another shooting tonight just a few blocks from here at 62nd and herzog in oakland.

the president-elect is going to ask congress to put up the money to build it and not mexico. house leaders said they hope to fund the process through the appropriations as early as april. it is unclear how much that wall could cost. veronica de la cruz, kpix5. >> so does this mean that you, the taxpayer, will be on the hook for the bill? we asked kpix5 political reporter melissa caen. >> congress could say it's $400 billion to build several miles of this double border wall and then later go through various channels to try and recoup that amount from the government of mexico. for "directo intelligence >> we're also learning tonight this man is donald trump's pick for director of national intelligence. dan coates is a retired indiana senator who served on the intelligence committee where he was a tough critics of russian president vladimir putin. tomorrow donald trump will meet

area because our source of air is not coming down from canada anymore. it's coming from honolulu, literally a pineapple express. the storm is poised to make it here tomorrow night and last all the way through monday morning, all of saturday, all of sunday wet. look at what happens saturday morning. futurecast, we'll stop things. the rain gets moderate but not the heaviest stuff. i think you'll begin doubting my forecast around 3:00 or 4:00 saturday afternoon when the rain gets a bit light. look what happens. the rain picks up in intensity saturday night, pours all night long and through sunday morning into the afternoon. as a matter of fact, now it looks like sunday may be three times wetter than saturday and saturday will be pretty wet. so you add everything up. how much rain do we get this weekend? in the santa cruz up to 10 inches of rain. that's why it's one of the hotspots for the biggest
flooding and mudslide concerns this weekend, even the south bay up to 3 inches of rainfall, east bay 4 inches of rainfall, the north bay 1/2 a foot in the mountains and the city of san francisco may get 4 inches of rain this weekend. the average for the entire month of january is a touch over 4 inches. that's a month's worth of rain in two days. so soaking rain and likely windy the majority of the weekend. only minor flooding is forecast for the napa and russian river. that's good because significant widespread flooding is likely in the santa cruz mountains, sierra and central valley. tomorrow we're dry until late at night. san rafael 49, wet and windy saturday and sunday, more so sunday. there's a little break monday, but more rain tuesday and a different storm moving in thursday, albeit not as strong. very wet this weekend, a bit of a lull saturday afternoon, really picks up saturday night and sunday is the day with heightened flood concerns. >> we're prepared.
pounds. wires and cables plug into a sound bar that provides the audio. what makes the thinness possible? organic light emitting diodes. >> oh. >> they really run circles around lcd in terms of giving you that superb picture quality from every angle, great deep black levels, all that excellent color. >> l.e.d.'s are getting thin. expect to pay about $10,000 when the lg tv goes on sale in the spring. >> but will it make us look thinner? that would make it worth it. >> nobody will pay 10 grand for a tv. >> there are some people that would. remember the plasma tvs? those were expensive when they first came out. we'll have the latest on the 49ers front office search, a shocker in san jose tonight. >> and can the bears pull off an upset? hint, it was,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
coming up next on kpix5. >> touchdown in houston tonight for savage's wildcard game against the texans. connor cook will start for oakland and the raiders could be without offensive lineman donald penn who did not practice this week after injuring his knee last weekend. the 49ers interviewed elliott wolf for the general manager vacancy earlier today. wolf worked in the packers front office in 2004. jed york wants to fix the culture, but steve young said that doesn't mean recreating the culture from the glory days. >> people also need to recognize that when eddy lost the team and denise got the team, there is a tremendous acrimony between the parties and so the past, that 49er past, is gingerly embraced, but they certainly aren't looking to recreate the 49ers of the '80s and '90s. it's not part of that. >> but a little input wouldn't
be bad. snoop dogg wondering if there would be a bone thrown to the dog tonight. an 11-0 bruins run, but everyone talking about batman, high off the glass. bruins beat cal, 81-71, bears 1- 2 in conference. warriors gm bob meyers working overtime at the hilltop. jordan matthews doing his curvey short thing. that will bring rain tomorrow night, trust me. maybe the zags just like rainbow jumpers. check out nigel williams, three of his career high 36, no upset tonight. does anybody in this audience even remember short? bulldogs win it 95-80, remain unbeaten this season. see the shirt behind pete debore? the wild didn't read it. san jose had a 4-2 lead, gave it back on this goal and they,,
