san francisco a third. half inch of rain. point rey es seems to have the most three quarters but there is higher amounts on mount tam. socal also a half inun. got news is we peeked out on the flood stage. gurnville. johnson's beach. crested out. it's on its way down. that will continue to go down. this system won't give them a lot of raint. may give them some. more on the category of something they can handle which is a quart tore a half inch. high tide at the golden gate 7:44. the blizzard warning over but now there is still a winter storm warning until four today. another five to 15 inches of snow. won't be measured in feet this time but i know it's around 3800 feet. the snow level and we mr. get down to 3,000 feet as we head into tonight and tomorrow if there is any available moisture left. unbelievable amounts of snow as you may imagine. some of the totals still coming
