6:35 pm
below 5,000 feet tonight and then we're going to see winds picking up out there tonight that wind advisory will remain in effect for far western nevada until 4:00 a.m. we could see gusts upwards of 65 miles per hour in the most wind-prone areas. in reno now, the winds are kicking up a little bit out of the south-southwest at 18 miles per hour, and we're currently sitting at 40 degrees with partly cloudy skies. around the area, we're right at that freezing mark in truckee. 32 degrees. and then 36 degrees tonight for fallin. we'll continue to see the temperatures drop off a little bit, but we're actually looking at those overnight lows to be a little warmer than what we have seen over the past couple of weeks. satellite and radar is showing this winter storm system hitting at this hour and will remain over us at the night tonight. as we put future cast in motion, we're going to see heavy snow. things start to taper off a little bit in the early morning hours. we're also expecting the most activity between 10:00 tonight and 4:00 a.m. tomorrow morning. then we have kind of a break during the day.
6:36 pm
cloud cover over the sear and far western nevada ahead of the next system that is going to be moving in. a lot of active weather out there. reno and sparks, down to 34 degrees. we have a 60% chance to see that mix of rain and snow overnight tonight. we could see winds gusting upwards of 45 miles per hour. so you might get woken up again tonight like we did a couple of nights ago. tomorrow, 44 degrees for the day time high with showers possible and then mostly cloudy skies throughout the rest of the day. the winds in eastern nevada going to be gusty as well with the day time highs in the 30s and the chance of snow throughout the day there. heading west, we're looking at more of a mix of rain and snow and the dame tie high for fallin hitting 45 degreesment and then into carson city, the mid 40s there as well and overnight lows, not extremely cold. we're sitting right around above or just below the freezing mark tonight. really across the region. around the lake we're looking at a mix of rain and snow early tomorrow morning, but definitely snow tonight. and then the day time highs
6:37 pm
and the lower 40s around the lake. looking at more possibility of rain up north. the day time high in sutcliffe reaching 47 degrees and then the overnight lows, some places not even reaching the freezing mark. definitely going to see more rain than anything else. the valley floor tonight, the overnight lows, and then right at the freezing mark tonight for virginia city. again, the majority of this activity looking to hit between 10:00 tonight and 4:00 a.m. tomorrow morning with the next system moving in on friday night and lasting throughout the weekend so a chance for rain or snow every single day for reno, lake tahoe and carson city on the seven-day forecast. over to you guys. >> thank you, madison. we have sports now, and the last few years, there has been a lot of this, but the 49ers have a new coach. >> again. they have a new head coach. >> a lot of people will be wondering how will this affect colin kaepernick? no matter what happens, i find it very intriguing,
6:38 pm
this could benefit greatly. after a 5-11 season, the san francisco 49ers have found their new head coach. they have hired the former eagles and university of oregon head coach chip kelly. he comes to the niners after three seasons in philly where he went 26-216789 while in oregon, kelly was dominant. he was a national title contender on an annual basis. kelly was let go by the eagles before the end of this season. so the instant question now is do the san francisco 49ers keep former nevada quarterback colin kaepernick? the speculation we're seeing is that he may keep his spot with the niners because chip kelly is well known for running a high-paced offense and he found success in the past with an athletic quarterback who can run, which is basically the first line on colin kaepernick's resume. he had a record of 17-6:00 a pir of deep playoff runs, including an appearance in the super bowl for kaepernick. this year he was benched by the then niners head coach in november.
6:39 pm
surgeries to repair some injuries since then. and we'll know the official answer by april 1 at the latest. that is when the salary for 2016 becomes guaranteed by the niners. so i want to know your opinion. will the hiring of chip kelly revive the career of colin kaepernick? we posted this poll on twitter. just go to our twitter page. go to my hand there will on your screen. the wolfpack men's basketball team lost at home for the first time this season last night. nevada drop adderaller coaster affair to boise state. 74-67. the senior guard coleman led inform inform with 17 points. and the pack fell behind by 14 in the first half but stormed back late to approximately within three with a minute to go, but just could not pull off the win. after the game the guys obviously disappointed with the outcome. yeah, because it is like you're there and you're there and then you're not. so, i mean, we just have to do a better jupe of staying
6:40 pm
