6:24 am
using. vegas.com 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 the airline sees you looking up the same flight multiple times, they'll know you're interested in probably booking the exact same dates and they'll jack up the price. >> so kill the cookies from your 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 price based on location and who you're trying to attract. all completely legal as long as there is no discrimination involved. i'm michael finney, "7 on your side." abc7 news took over the

tweaking their roster, cut veteran center anderson varejao. they had seven centers, so this clears a roster spot. and that spot will go to d-league sensation briante weber, 6'2" guard, just named the player of the month, jumps out of the gym and really excels on defense, also will give the warriors another ball handler. not exactly a shocker here but espn reported the colin kaepernick will opt out of his contract with the 9ers to become a free agent. if he doesn't, the niners are going to cut him because they're not going to pay him $14 million to come back. so what is the market for colin kaepernick as a starter? pretty limited, you would think. but it only takes one team. we shall see. super bowl on sunday. i like the patriots. have a great weekend, everybody. i'm larry beil. good morning to you, we are looking at a few waves of showers that continue to push oer the bay area.
6:49 am
here's live doppler 7. starting in the north bay, you can see from marin county there, across 580 in richmond, vallejo, a few areas of light rain up towards geyserville, healdsburg, and santa rosa and further to the south on the peninsula, 280 here all the way down through pescadero and the santa cruz mountains, certainly wet, it's foggy at the coast, the visibility is low and we're looking at some breezy winds up to 20 miles an hour. but this is all pretty much rain or changing over to rain and we have a conveyor belt of moisture that's going to aim right at the bay area for much of the upcoming workweek. but we are going to get a break after this system pushes through, oh, in the next couple of hours but in the sierra nevada still looking at a winter weather advisory, 4 inches of snow above 6,000 feet. heavier snow showers above that and looking at gusty winds again. yesterdays a lot of the resorts were closed down due to the gusty winds and today could be the same issue. from emeryville, pretty gray out
6:50 am
there. 56 in the still, 52 in gilroy, 55 in half moon bay and looking at santa cruz where numbers are in the mid 50s now, going up to about 60 today and maybe a few light areas of sprinkles, otherwise it will be a few sunny peeks there and this is a shot of tahoe where you can see the snow but right now, we've got some rain happening with temperatures in the mid 30s so some showers, maybe a few peeks of sun. the next storm system arrives late tomorrow from the early evening hours to the later evening hours and then the rainy pattern throughout much of the upcoming workweek, tuesday, tuesday night, looks particularly strong, stronger than what we're going to see between now and about tomorrow night. so, things are going to settle down in the next few hours, just a scattered showers here or there, 1 to 2/10 and as we go through the next few hours, a wave now and another wave by about 11:00 or 12:00 and then after that, we get a pretty decent break. showers will be isolated, taking you through tonight, tomorrow,
6:51 am
and then by 4:00 p.m., sonoma county could be getting wet but it's really 7:00 when the showers, the line of pretty good rain is offshore. you can see it heading south ward from sonoma and marin by 8:00 and by the evening, it's pretty rainy out there. so, if we add up the rain totals from that system late tomorrow, we are looking at anywhere from about 1/10 inch to over 1 inch in santa rosa. so humid again today, upper 50s to low 60s and the accuweather 7 day forecast, we have a 1 on our storm impact scale each and every day with some scattered showers, late tomorrow looks tock a stormy night. morning showers on monday. tuesday could be a little heavier and then we'll look at more rain for wednesday and on and on. so, we're hoping that we get enough breaks in between that we don't see some flooding problems. so download our app and you will be up to date. wow. just wow. that's all i can say. all right. we'll take it, lisa. thank you. we are just one day away from super bowl sunday as the new england patriots take on the
