the agency's regulations have been strengthened to ensure air safety for all of us. wood pollution from wood smoke is one of the greatest health threat to the bay area during the winter months. the 2015-2016 season runs from november 1 through february 29. and, the winter snow pack is steadily building up in the sierra bringing fresh powder up to the mountains. with the rain coming next week, things are looking up for the california drought. scott joins us with a look at the ski conditions. >> reporter: a lot of powder on the ground. more rain on the way. good stuff. how about a little sledding. it is looking good. kevin, what's it looking like up there man? >> it is looking really good. the holidays are absolutely fantastic up here. you have a look at the overall

powder hunter e i get out in front of the storm, i make my reservations, go to the websites. i make sure i get my place booked and i leave before the storm so i'm here during the storm to be able to enjoy all the fresh powder. if you want to come after that, just pay attention to the caltrans road line. you can always get the latest update information on highway 80. highway 50. highway 59. 88. so you can get up here. slow your roll. make sure you carry chains and winter conditions. pay attention to the social media pages. we can tell you what is going on. we are look at 18 inches in the forecast. this is just going to set us up. if you guys remember last year, january is when the snow stops. this el niño pattern looks like we will have a stall in january, february, and march. >> that is awesome. one last question for you

>> reporter: the governor touring some of the hardest hit regions saying some of the interstates are back open. water levels have fallen several feet. but many homes are still far from drying out. while missouri is in the recovery process, states are anticipating more damage. in alexandria county where the mississippi and ohio rivers meet, the water is expected to crest sunday. more than three feet above major flooding stage. >> you live in the water, you can expect anything. >> water has gone over the top of one levee. and the second has good potential of overtopping. they have forced i evacuations. >> some communities have been
getting harder. >> looking very frightening pictures. we know at least 22 people have died. five of them remain missing tonight. just a mess out there vicki liviakis. an in world news, 47 people were executed in one day in saudi arabia. the executed men believed extremist ideology and were members of terrorist groups. they were plotting against a u.s. consulate in 2004. the executions are threatening to damage sunni shiite relations. this has sparked protests in teheran. the site of the san bernardino rampage is set to reopen on monday. there will be tighter security as the inland regional center's 600 employees return to work. the center has been closed down
since december 2. both shooters were killed by police. syed farook was an employee. he worked with many of the victims. a 4.5 earthquake rattled the northern california coast last night. it happened about 9:00 p.m. friday. dozens said they felt the shaking. it happened in the same area as a magnitude 4.9 quake on monday. several smaller ones later in week. coming up at 8:00, they say they rented out their house on new year's eve and came home to find it had been trashed by teenagers. plus, trump in a terror ad? why an al-qaeda affiliate is using the presidential candidate to recruit. and next ... new year? new law. we break down some of the major changes to know about for 2016.
>> with the new year comes new laws. every school age child must now be vaccinated. it is one of the many new laws that went into effect. parents will no longer use religion or personal beliefs as a reason for their child to be exempt from vaccination. debate took off after measles outbreaks at disneyland last year sickened nearly 150 people. parents now have to show proof that their child has been vaccinated before the kid can go to school. drivers and cyclists are not allowed to wear ear buds in both ears, however, wearing one ear bud is acceptable. two ear bud cans drown out necessary ambient noise. drivers an cyclists wearing two ear buds will have to wear a

the other thing of note, these similars are a little bit different than what we have been dealing with so far this winter. november and december, very rainy in the pacific northwest. that is not the typical el niño pattern. el niño typically brings dry weather to the pacific northwest. and above average precipitation to central and southern california. now, it looks like this more typical el niño pattern may be begining to establish itself. that is good news for the drought situation. here is storm tracker 4. light rain offshore. but most of this is drying up before it hits ground because the air at the surface is very dry. so the rain drops evaporate before they reach the surface. it will take a while before the rain develops into tomorrow. in the afternoon is when we will see steady light to rod rat rain. low to mid 50s around the bay area. and now, live at the golden gate bridge, notice it is dry here, but that is going to
change by tomorrow afternoon. as this first of four systems comes in for tomorrow. now, for tonight, mostly cloudy skies. there could be a few sprinkles at times or light showers. for the morning, there is a chance for rain if the timing on the system changes which it could, the rain might come in before noon but now it looks like mainly into the afternoon an the evening and monday morning. in the sierra, cloudy skies for tomorrow and snow showers into monday. it will take a little longer for this system to reach the sierra because it in s in the process of slowing down. we have a second snow system coming in. it will bring a lot of snow and windy conditions. and we could be measureing the snow in feet as we get to the end of the week. we are measuring the rain in inches. this is the forecast from tomorrow through thursday when we add up the three storm systems. possibly two to three inches of rain. around the bay. and into the higher elevations
north bay hills as well as the santa cruz mountains. perhaps as much as five to six inches of rain. temperature wise, not as cold for tonight. because we have the cloud cover in place. no freezing temperature ins the forecast. mid to upper 30s east bay and north bay valleys. low 40s by the bay. low 40s in the south bay. for the afternoon, a little bit milder than what we have been seeing. mid to upper 50s and even some low 60s in the forecast next week coming up in a little bit. here at kron 4, we asked our staff to share their favorite stories. one of the strongest hurricanes on record made landfall in mexico. scott shows us how it impacted bay area families. >> one of my favorite stories of the year involves the airport at san francisco sfo and family waiting to see some of their loved ones coming back from a region just hit by a category 5 hurricane. one of the biggest hurricanes ever on record.
the anticipation, the drama, the emotion involved in that story was really, really compelling. and, this was my favorite story of the year. >> reporter: well, this massive category 5 hurricane one of the biggest hurricanes ever in the western hemisphere had everybody frightened. especially those who had friends and family in puerto vallarta. today, some of the people were starting to come home and for the people who were waiting for their loved ones to arrive here, it was really just a matter of time. >> we think we see plane coming in. >> reporter: as the minutes tip away, verna leon waits. the wait is excruciating. >> we have been up all night watching the hurricane. >> reporter: so is the anticipation. >> we were three hours early. >> reporter: time, feeling like it is standing still. >> oh my goodness. i feel like i am little again. >> reporter: with flowers in hand, leon waits for her parents to arrive home from puerto vallarta.
as she waits, she can't help but to think about what might have happened to them when hurricane patricia slammed into the coast of mexico at more than 160 miles an hour. >> sheer panic. they are inland 30 miles. they are done. we are thinking this might be it. >> reporter: as people walk off the first flight out of the battered region, there were planety of hugs and stories to go around. >> it sounded like we were just under a waterfall. >> it was terrifying. that is when we realized it was no joke. >> reporter: out of nowhere, just like that, the waiting game was over. not by the brute power of one of the strongest storms in history, but the overwhelming power of emotions. love ... >> what is it like to see your daughter? >> really happy. >> reporter: and relief. >> i'm not a cry baby, really i'm not. but i'm just so happy to see my parents. we got to scared.
>> come monday, drivers in the golden gate bridge will notice a few changes for 2016. traffic lanes will be recon figured starting on the fourth. it will affect traffic monday through wednesday. that is when three northbound an three southbound lanes will be open. the current plan will remain in place thursday and friday during the evening commute. the methane gas leak in southern california is proving to take a little longer than expected to stop that leak. the leak near la started in
october. likely won't be fixed for at least two more months. officials have relocated several thousand residents who said the stench is making them sick. california gas says the wells may not be finished until the end of february or even later. coming up, for anybody nursing a holiday hangover, there's some help. we will show you no pain, champagne. plus, the terror group using donald trump in their latest propaganda video.
>> an al-qaeda terrorist group is using donald trump in their latest recruit visiting. al shebab is using him to label the u.s. as a racist country. they specifically point to trump's controversial comments about muslims in the wake of the san bernardino shooting in the video they tell muslims in america that the country has a long history of racism and the country will turn on its muslim community. still ahead, we will show you how 2015 was the best and worst of people behaving badly. plus, they are taking off the gloves in congress. we show you the show down over your healthcare. >> and teens trash a house on air bnb. what the homeowners plan to do about it. >> wet weather offshore. it is getting closer to us for tonight. and i'll have the wet seven-day forecast for you coming up.

pattern, more of a typical setup is beginning to establish itself this week. here is the satellite view. and you know, the forecast model is calling for a couple of light sprinkles and showers. but looking at this rain band, this looks to be a little bit heavier. i think it is a possible what we have overnight will be heavier than expected. we will see heavier showers overnight which could continue into the morning and then steady rain for the afternoon is really the core of the system which is well out here. this is what is rolling in tomorrow afternoon. evening. and into monday morning so we have mostly cloudy skies at midnight. again, there could be some scattered showers as the initial band pulls into the bay area. but as we get into noon and into the afternoon, the rain is expected to intensify and that continues into the evening and monday. but lit be off and on light showers. scattered through the day monday with some sunshine in

>> been a long delayed newier's resolution for republicans. 2016. it will be the year they put legislation on the desk to repeal the healthcare law. it will likely be the first order of business when the house reconvenes next week. president obama will veto the repeal which would also seek to cut money to planned parenthood. the measure already passed the senate under special rules protecting it from obstructions. the republicans plan to schedule a veto override vote later in the month. president obama starting his last year in office. the long promise response to mass shootings here in the u.s. of course, it will be a package of executive actions on gun control. expected before january 12. before the state of the union address. and aimed at the gun show loophole which allows some firearm sellers to avoid conducting background checks on their customers. now, the white house argues the president's actions will be within his executive authority.
vowing to fight the move, the nation's biggest gun lobby, the nra, says the president is doing what he always does when he doesn't get his way. excusing executive action. newier's resolutions can be hard to keep, but there is new research that could make it easier. marting researchers say simply asking yourself questions rather than telling yourself to do something seems to work better. asking yourself will you exercise rather than telling yourself to go ahead an drop and give me 50. the study says that seems to improve the chances of actually following through. good luck on that. time for kron 4 sports. >> all right, scott race is here with a lot of sports action tonight. the warriors in particular,. >> the warriors are in oracle taking on the denver nuggets. guess who is back? guess who is back? steph! after missing two games.

potential to be a force to be reckoned with over the next two years. as for the 49ers, they have a ton of issues. they are on pace to be their mark would be the worst in a decade. 4-11. they will certainly be a lot of questions over the next week about the future of the coaching staff. yet, tomsula maintains the only thing they are thinking about is beating saint louis sunday. rose bowl, christian mccaffrey wears number five in honor of reggie bush. like bush, he is one of college football's most exciting electrifying players. at the rose bowl yesterday, the stanford running back put on a performance worthy of a heisman trophy winner. he gave the committee something to think about. i'll tell you that now. rose bowl, pasadena. stanford, iowa. cardinal in their third rose bowl in four years. hawk eyes, the first since
