instead of $3, a price negotiated when they opened in december. pricesweren't set because the season opened in ways of acid levels that made crab unsafe to eat. negotiations have been salty and fishermen have drawn a line in the water. >> we have to make $3 a pound. that's the best way it takes to run a boat and pay the crew and pay the insurance and the fuel and pay the bait and everything else. costs $3 a pound. we don't get that, we might as well tie up. >> reporter: with boats tied up, busy restaurants are waiting for the next wave of trouble. >> this is a very busy week for us. coming on monday we would be ordering 50 pounds. >> they make more than just $3 a pound. but they know they will be

heading towards the end of 2016, we are talking about just a few clouds first thing tomorrow morning, but for the weekend it should be okay. if you don't mind the cooler temperatures out there, of course lake tahoe is a very popular destination this weekend. saturday a chance for snow showers. good snow showers likely as we head into sunday. temperatures for afternoon highs mainly in the 30s. here is your ski report as you can see for north star sugar bowl squaw and sierra tahoe with more of the dry snow expected into early next week.
here you can see on the satellite. in fact the next system will be developing out here in the pacific and a little bit of the circulation right up here. generating some rainfall along the knot coast and the snowfall out there as well. maybe a rain/snow mix closer to the surface. that'll be the source of maybe some clouds and a possibility for a few showers first thing tomorrow morning. here you can see this, the bigger picture out here in the pacific with some cold air up here to the north. they will be moving in this weekend, but especially kicking in for monday of next week as we will start off 2017. for tomorrow the clouds out there with a chance for a few scattered showers. for the morning hour skies will be partly cloudy into the afternoon with a change. very cold for monday and tuesday and potentially coming down below 2,000 feet and possibly into a thousand feet. but the latest forecast model is not being brought up to the extreme chill of the bay area and watching for you next week monday and tuesday. that'll be the next stuff we'll be watching snow levels as i
mentioned right now a thousand feet. going up just a little bit. but overnight lows in the 20s with the highs in the 40s, then beyond this we could be talking about significant rainfall into wednesday. and as a warmer system will move on shore. here is the forecast model for you tomorrow morning. so the last morning of the year, you can see the clouds on out there. most of the showers potentially with the higher chances remaining out to the west. still a chance for the showers tomorrow morning. into the afternoon hours, we will need to scale back on the clouds with midnight heading towards 2017. and it will be dry with the partly cloudy skies, definitely some cool temperatures out there. sunday, just partly cloudy, look what happened into monday. we could be talking about more showers here and possibly some pretty low snow levels for you. we will need to keep an eye on the latest forecast models to suggest how cold those temperatures will be into next week. forecast highs for tomorrow, the clouds in the morning clear in the afternoon. then in most areas in the 50s for the afternoon highs. most areas in the 50s.
a look ahead to your five-day forecast. there it is breaking out into 2017. we do have this increasing clouds with some cold showers into monday. then the chance for a few showers and tuesday and the latest forecast model as i looked at them a few minutes ago changing their tune for a little bit for wednesday next week initially where they were suppose to be very cold and maybe snow at sea level. saying it will be warmer and maybe significant rainfall. so stay tuned. we'll be watching out for that. >> definitely need to bundle up. >> it will be dry tomorrow good news. >> mark, thank you how much. let's go to the other mark right now. that'll do it for us tonight. and all of their good news. >> where do you think you're going?

how is it going everybody? thanks and welcome to this special new year's edition of the mercedes sports weekend. we will start with the warriors. i would call them refreshingly comfortable to watch tonight. they would head out to about 70, 75% taking care of the overmatched dallas mavericks team, but look who is there. they have not left with the raiders for denver quite yet. he would see the victory that the warriors and the the other regulars have chipped in, but i wouldn't say they were pressed. watch them go coast to coast
and end up with the jam. plenty of highlights, even though they didn't need to go all out. didn't mean they didn't have their moment up top. he played about 27 minutes tonight. kevin durant, he had a triple double with the three at 19 points, 11 rebounds and 10 assists up 11 at half time. in the third quarter, that is where the show will need to begin as we will be talking about the clay thompson show. testifies feel -- he was feeling it and wasn't quite done either as he will take care of things with the left- hand layup. 29 points definitely worth the replay. that is probably your shot of the game. as i said, refreshingly routine. 102-14, the warriors record in last year and this year's regular season combined. they are 29-5 this year. the stanford cardinals are going at it in the sun bowl. i'll tell you what, this is a game they would
