to the east bay, 56 for oakland. mid 50s for concord. san francisco, 55. upper 50s at the coast and pacifica. the south bay, we have 59 in san jose. 58 expected for morgan hill. your extended forecast, a little warmer on wednesday. a near repeat on thursday. overnight lows will still be very, very chilly. coming up just slightly as the afternoon highs begin to moderate as well. it doesn't last. as we get into your bay area weekend, the increase in the cloud cover and unsettled weather and temperatures fall back to the upper 50s. all in all, not a bad looking forecast. again, if you have outdoor plans for new year's eve or day, we're in good shape. >> all right. thanks, rosemary. >> sure. >> people may not have to change their new year's plans. >> yeah. bring the coat. all good. after a holiday weekend full of fresh powder in the sierra, there is concern about what visitors left behind. >> broken sleds and trash abandoned along the side of the highway. >> reporter: getting into the snow park was a mess this
monday. with holiday travelers looking for a place to park to go sledding. but the traffic wasn't the only mess. here the pile of broken sleds and trash filled this dumpster and was overflowing: at least here it was near the garbage can. at other sledding locations along the interstate 80 corridor, we found that wasn't the case. >> it looks better without garbage. >> reporter: guadalupe aperez has been coming for three years to the snowy spot so her family can play in the fresh powder and build snow men. this year someone started building heaps of garbage. >> i never see people leaving trash. we don't do that. i don't know. >> reporter: the shards of bright colored bits of plastic sleds are hard to miss. so is the giant raft that was left here. brought his family out to the snow and recognized the impact. >> the plastic doesn't disintegrate. it takes years and years and years. there should be a social responsibility which is pick up
after yourself. >> reporter: while highway and park workers will clean up some sites that get trashed, some of this plastic could litter the scenery here for decades. >> if you don't take care of it today, you won't have the place to use tomorrow. omorrow. >> well, broken sleds aside, much of the sierra still looks like a winter wonder land. look at the squaw valley and alpine see resorts. squaw received 25 inches of snow over the weekend. it allowed new runs to be open for skiers yesterday. it will be partly cloudy to clear over the next few days before another winter storm is expected to hit this upcoming weekend. all right. we go from the snow to birds. the 34th annual san francisco bird count is underway today. that means a team of birders are out and about looking for birds at parks and along the beaches and flying over the city streets. last year they noted 184 species and more than 73,000 individual birds. similar bird counters are taking place in more than 2,000 other cities during the last couple of weeks of the year.
