blizzard conditions are as travelers try to return home after the thanksgiving holiday. at o'hare in -- airport in chicago, workers spend the day trying to keep runways open, but nearly 1800 flights across the country have been canceled since yesterday because of the weather. and, many holiday travelers found themselves stuck at the airport there in chicago. >> it's just the weather. there is nothing we can do about it. the good lord says, if they're going to blow it in, they're going to blow it in. we have to wait and see. >> sfo is reporting more than 50 delays and cancellation involving flights to and from chicago and other parts of the midwest. anyone with a flight should contact their airline had of time. for more on our weather now, let's get ovtin in the weather center. or, not in the weather center. it used to be the weather center but, it is just the nice weather area. more rain this week.
6:47 pm
>> yeah, more rain this week, umbrellas will be needed, commutes will be wet, snow will be in the mountains and the usual set of suspects will develop. a winter storm warning, flood advisory in the area and we will see a flood advisory in the area as well. you can basically see what's going on. and, it's not just one. there is the beginning of it but there will be impulses behind this to keep it going kind of all week. to varying degrees. right now, the will house from this weather system, the wheelhouse, meaning it wants to be at its height, will be around wednesday night, somewhere wednesday night into thursday morning right now. but, then we'll see how it goes. timing will change. today was dry, tomorrow for the most part is going to be kind of dry. but then after that, it all changes. and you see the models here or winter storm warnings in effect , as we go into wednesday night into thursday night, and we've got the surf advisory.
6:48 pm
the swells are going to be real big. they are going to be 20 some feet. and then we also have the flash flood advisory up in the burn zones. so, you're getting a little bit of everything. here is the model tomorrow morning. you see it looks like the morning commute should be dry for the bulk of the bay area. there is the system, and then it sweeps through all day from 10:00, until 4:00, 5:00 tomorrow. just showery and raining. maybe a quarter inch, maybe a half-inch and most likely the afternoon commute will be a wet one and then there's more behind that. here's how it looks on another model, another depiction, just showing you the three dimensions. the mornings are dry in the afternoon, san francisco, late afternoon, something like that. so, the afternoon commute, wet tonight, overnight, showt gets wednesday night into thursday morning. a wet period coming up. nothing out of the ordinary for this time of year but, rain, and a healthy rain at that. we saw significant rain with the last weather system.
6:49 pm
some areas combined 3 inches of rain. i think that's completely possible here, where we could see 2 to 3 inches of rain in some of the urban areas over a few days which is a good- looking weather system. here is the five-day forecast in the mountains. it would not be hard at all to get 3 feet of snow. you might suggest 4 feet as we get into the bay area weekend. if you're skiing, i'm sure you're eyeballing saturday and sunday because it'll probably be really good skiing. >> nice to have all of that fresh snow. bill, thank you. nasa scientist erupted enjoy this morning after a successful landing on mars. >> touchdown confirmed. >> the insight lander touched down just before noon. it took eight minutes for communication signals to travel back to earth to m its safe arrival. this was the first image sent back from mars. the photo was taken from a camera mounted below the lander,
6:50 pm
shortly after landing. >> mars was a habitable planet about 3 billion years ago, and then something happened and now it is desolate. we are trying to understand what caused that to happen. >> insight will operate for the next 2 years, probing the red planet's interior. this was nasa's eighth successful mars landing since 1976. mark is up next with sports. the 49ers had a challenging day if you will, losing bedtime yesterday in tampa bay. but, kyle shanahan has decided who his starting quarterback will be next week. mark will have that decision coming up next. [ phone rings ] what?!
6:51 pm

6:52 pm
a guy just dropped this off. he-he-he-he.
6:53 pm
mark is here now with sports. it was a rough one. both bay area football teams. >> isn't it every weekend? >> yeah, pretty much has been. >> when you think about it, between our two football teams, four winds and 18 losses combined. both 2-9. but, the san francisco 49ers, demoralizing start to finish. you start the day with the news of ruben foster being arrested and then take the field against
6:54 pm
tampa bay and it was all downhill from there. as nick mullins in his third start, you could see he too, major digression. he was intercepted twice, did throw one touchdown pass but had previously been sacked. he was sacked four times yesterday and against tampa bay, a team that has given up 33 points a game. kyle shanahan, making sure that there would be no mystery, as to who will start next year, next week against seattle, although i wouldn't read a whole lot into this decision. >> jimmy is our quarterback. everybody knows that. cj got an opportunity when nick got hurt and nick got the opportunity when cj got hurt. we are playing this year, at 2- 3. we are going to do everything we can to win again. i know that we are prepared with nick and if he struggles, i bring in cj. will see how it goes. >> backs will be the number one discussion when the raiders take the field next sunday against the kansas city chiefs.
6:55 pm
the quarterback being discussed will probably be patrick homes. but, not too much of a complaint about derek carr. he seems to have stabilized a little bit the last couple of games. can't put the blame on yesterday's mess in baltimore, he was kind of a pedestrian, 16 of 34, 194 yards passing, one touchdown and no interceptions including that spectacular connection with jared cook, his tight end, who was completely behind derek carr, as is his coach, jon gruden. >> he's had a lot of change. but, he's doing well and is taking care of the thrown. he made a couple of good throws there were called back yesterday. i'm proud of what he's doin i agree with cook. i always agree with cook, though. whatever he says i agree with. meantime, a's fans, pay attention to this. college football, getting close to the time when we are talking about heisman trophy winners. the oklahoma sooners
6:56 pm
quarterback has put himself into the conversation. that's kyler murray. another spectacular performance, as he takes his sooners into the big 12 championship game. this guy has got some wheels. watch him move. now i said a's fans, pay attention. remember, he was drafted in the number nine pick in the mlb draft this past year and he says even though he is an nfl prospect, baseball is his thing. >> do you think that you could play in the nfl as well the way this season is going? >> i feel like i could play in the nfl but as far as giving up, as of now, yeah, that's the plan. >> to play baseball and give up football completely? >> yeah. >> they say when you see him run it looks like the tape is on fast ford. centerfielder of the future, it looks like. in case you missed it over the weekend, florida beat florida state in the rivalry game. watch as the coach has his on- field post game interview
6:57 pm
interrupted for a weird reason. >> to never have won this game -- hey! hey! >> that guy is putting the flag on the fsu logo. >> they had to cool things down, as his players right in the middle of the interview wanted to put the flag down at midfield on fsu's logo. a little emotional. watch this. demarcus randall with the interception, gives it to his former coach, hue jackson, just fired by the browns a couple of weeks back . new at yothis. in case you missed this is the seattle running back but, i think it's even more impressive, if you can see the replay. yes. and he lands on his feet. >> oh, my gosh.
6:58 pm
>> that's the sporting line.
6:59 pm
(eerie music playing) all right, just a few more feet. and... here we are, gentlemen, the gates of elzebob. good lord. don't panic. this is what the last 97 hours have been about. stay frosty. there's a horde of armed goblins on the other side of that gate guarding the sword of asaroth. warriors, unsheathe your weapons. magic wielders, raise your wands. lock and load.
7:00 pm
