5:17 am
from 12:00 to 4:00 and you should see dry conditions but right now in the north bay, dylan beach, you've got some wet weather up through heelsburg and finally highway 1 through pacifica, the peninsula, little bit wet, and down around the santa cruz mountains. in the east bay, just the higher elevations looking at a little bit of moisture in the sierra nevada, it's rain right now, blue canyon, 37 degrees so we're looking at truckee in the mid 30s and with that the winter storm warning has been dropped but we have a winter weather advisory until 10:00 tonight. heavy snow showers and we see wind gusts up to 45 miles an hour so a lot of the resorts were closed yesterday due to those gusty wind. so hopefully maybe some better conditions, although that rain at lake level isn't great. low 50s right now in the south bay. it's been muggy and humid, 54, san francisco, and san carlos, looking at 51 in danville, so temperatures definitely on the mild side and that has brought the snow level up.
5:18 am
we'll see some showers on and off today. also with some sun in the afternoon, the next main storm arrives tomorrow night and we'll see some heavier rain in the early evening hours right around, maybe, halftime super bowl and the raining pattern will last through next week. so the system today, it really is going to be drying out throughout the afternoon so still just a 1 on our storm impact scale. scattered light showers, 1/3 inch mainly in the north bay. elsewhere, you won't see much at all. the winds will be breezy at times. notice a couple waves of showers here and there, 9:00, then again by noontime, 3:00, pretty isolated and throughout the evening hours tonight and into tomorrow, it will be dry but then by 3:00, we have some showers in the north bay and about 5:00, perhaps, into marin county, but by 7:00, we've got heavier showers just offshore and some downpours headed our way by 8:00, lasting right through the overnight hours so between later on today and late
5:19 am
tomorrow, we're expecting another 1/2 inch to 1 inch with that push coming in sunday night. so highs today ranging from upper 50s to low 60s with most of the shower activity this morning and will be dissipating throughout the afternoon. if you're headed up to the mountains, we've got some rain, maybe mixed with snow, low to mid 40s for today and tomorrow in the accuweather 7 day forecast. so there's not going to be a lot today, but check it out, download the app and you can track the rain because we're going to see rain just about each and every day. downpour late tomorrow and then again on tuesday looking pretty wet. we'll have to watch that system and they look light at this point, but you know, the storm track is just pushing a bit to the north so if it sags to the south, we could see much more rain throughout the week. >> all week long, huh? all right. just ahead, pursuing equality. this year's black history month celebration

5:24 am
price in the local store and that price can vary by region. the prices do not change based on the device the customer is using. told us hotels control the costs and discounts offered and the prices can be different depending on devices used and where. we did not hear back from orbitz by air time. oh, and one more thing. checking back on prices can cost you. airlines are known for this. >> if an airline sees you looking up the same flight multiple times, they'll know you're interested and they'll jack up the price. >> kill the cookies from the browser, have an out of town friend check the price and try different devices. >> i guess i should get better at using my phone, then. >> reporter: really, this isn't all that different from what the brick and mortar guys do. they change prices depending on location and who they're trying to attract, all completely legal as long as there is no discrimination involved. i'm michael finney, "7 on your
