the rainfall totals so far. looks like loma prieta getting the most with the rain so far and the rest of the bay area oakland about .10", san francisco barely much measurable precipitation, just a few hundredths of an inch. we could get a quarter or inch of rain most of that across the north bay overnight. so scattered rain throughout the day. the cold front will be arriving here tonight. so let's look at that futurecast and show you when it will be getting here. here we are around noontime. and you'll continue to see scattered showers. but again, maybe even some areas of sunshine throughout redwood city, morgan hill perhaps. even east of livermore. but 7:00 tonight, that's when some of the rain will be coming in from the north. and that's when it will continue through midnight tonight and then the rest of the bay area likely going to get some rain until early morning saturday. noontime saturday things should clear up. rain in the south bay. then sunshine for the north bay by noon saturday. the rest of the day should be
okay. if you have saturday afternoon plans, good weather. sunday light scattered showers if it does even happen. winter storm warnings also in effect right now for the tahoe area. up to two feet of snow in the higher elevations. snow levels are expected to drop on sunday because of the cooler air. we are experiencing cool air for us, low 60s for the highs today and temperatures will stay cool throughout the seven- day forecast. rain showers saturday into sunday, very light. then another storm system wednesday, thursday. sunset happening tonight at 6:08. keep this in mind. daylight saving ends on saturday night. sunday the sunset will be at 5:06 instead. >> turn back the clocks. >> earlier nightfall. >> we like that.
this is kinds of gross. a monster -- kind of gross. a monster clog, a "fatberg." they used high pressure jets, shovels and hands to break apart the 130-ton build-up. it formed from grease and other gross items being sent down the drain. experts say that they are making good use of the broken- up chunks by converting them into biodiesel. >> go and eat lunch now. [ laughter ] coming up, we check in with our pet expert. >> enjoy it. >> yeah. atf atf. >> today's topic is a normal habit or signs a problem when your dog keeps licking her paws. we'll find out.
our pet expert, dr. jill chase is here along with "paris"... to weigh in. it's a habit you might see on dogs licking paws but is it a problem? jill chase is here with paris. does paris lick her paws? >> she does not. see how good she is being? the owners were worried she wouldn't be good. she is so good! whenever we're dealing with skin disease, as well as diarrhea, it requires a lot of patience from the owners while we take the time to work them out because there are many, many reasons for both of those symptoms to occur. so we are going to focus today on licking of the paws and primarily, generally, there's three main reasons why and then more esoteric rare reasons.
but allergies would be one. they have an allergy to something whether they stepped in something they are allergic to or they have a food allergy or possibly inhalant allergy inhaling something they are allergic to. and then we would wonder about mites which require skin scrapings to look and see. then sometimes we have these rare auto-immune diseases that can lead to itchiness and then of course i should mention infection. infections absolutely are itchy to dogs so clearing that up is good. the biggest point i wanted to make is that if you have a dog who has been licking paws, call your veterinarian and then the veterinarian will ask the owner a series of questions, when is it happening, how often, when did it start? and then they will look at the skin to see what kind of lesions we see and then we do the diagnostic testing based on what the owner tells us and go from there. >> paris is attracted to something over here. might be my ring. >> hoping for food! >> dr. chase, thank you so many. >> you're welcome. >> if you have a question about
by living off the grid. completely. or... set the washing machine to cold. do your thing. energy upgrade california. let's take a live look out at "sierra at tahoe." take a look at those conditions! you can see that there is snow on the ground but look at that. it looks cold out there! you can see the trees kind of
subwaying in the wind there. >> looks like christmas. >> early for that but it's going to snow this morning and more tonight and through the weekend. here's a look at where the rain is coming down. this is the area of the strongest rain at the moment. just past through healdsburg and you can see it moving further east towards highway 24 calistoga going to see some rain and just saw some rain through dillon beach, as well. here's what's on the way. more from the ocean moving towards the north bay and more from eureka moving south. >> you're leaving us for a little bit? >> i am. >> congratulations. you're getting married! >> it's wedding time. >> yay!
