11:19 pm
turn a little bit stronger, heading towards tomorrow afternoon and evening. so 50s outside right now as you wake up tomorrow morning, mid-40s. the wind-sheltered valleys. maybe not so much tomorrow morning. but as we head towards monday night and tuesday morning, may drop into the upper 30s and low 40s. so it's going to feel a bit more like winter for the next couple mornings. and during the day, you may even keep that jacket on, as you'll see here, hour-by-hour. forts and 50s through 9:00. and then by noon, 50s. our average high this time of year should be at least in the mid-60s and upper 60s in the warmer spots as you'll see towards mid afternoon. only low 60s. and all-day breezes probably not going to feel all that warm. san jose near 63 tomorrow. notice los gatos out towards the santa cruz mountains, the hill tops near morgan hill. slight chance of afternoon showers. sft upper 50s to near 60 for a high. around the north bay, we had mid 70s for highs tomorrow. mid 60s in the forecast.
11:20 pm
napa, is about rosa and livermore seeing the slight chance of showers. the low pressure dropping in cooler air. most of the moisture is bog to be off to the east. but at times we'll see little batches of moisture coming away from the sierra. the cool air aloft. may see some of the showers trying to form around the hill tops. see the clouds building up around the diablo range from 3:00 to 5:00. a slight chance of showers near the hilltop locations. and another chance towards tuesday evening. looks like targeting the north bay. accumulations expected to be relatively light unless you get caught underneath one of the showers in the north bay. you can see between now and tuesday night, not adding up to a whole lot. enough if you're around the hills of the east bay, north bay and the santa cruz mountains between now and wednesday, still a chance of seeing showers at times the next couple of afternoon. . you're seeing better accumulation as low as 4,000 feet. this is great news as the sierra year to year is an amazing change. 88% of average right now. only 9% of average last year,
11:21 pm
which is is the difference in terms of how much snow. it's almost 18 inches deep as of today. last year at this time, only 2 inches deep. so the sierra picture continues to improve. we're going see more chances of snowshowers the middle part of the week. and if the snow and temperatures in the bay area staying cool through wednesday. then by thursday and friday, around san francisco back to average. san jose as you finish the workweek after some windy conditions the next couple of days, back into 70s by friday. average high should be 65 around dublin. we'll get there by wednesday. thursday and friday, a warm-up that we think should take us at least to start next weekend. some 70s in the forecast. and notice on sunday pour the north bay, a chance of some showers late. that will be our next chance of seeing some sprinkle showers late next weekend and into the beginning of next week. so not quite done with the rain just yet. and you'll not want to pack away the winter coat. the temperatures could be upper 30s and low 40s proaching the middle part of the week. >> thanks a lot. our free nbc area app is a great

11:33 pm
she has details about the new guards on the job, and has anything changed. >> reporter: that's the question we set out to answer. after our first report last month, palo alto city leaders assured us they hired a new company to man the track watch program to spot at-risk teens. they said the new guards would be more alert and professional. but our hidden cameras documented a different story. with their neon vests and plastic pods, the cypress security guards are hard to miss. but when night fall, some guards are hard to find. >> it's been an hour. it's been an hour that no one has been here. >> reporter: they're supposed to stand watch around the clock every day at three train crossing and the california train station in palo alto. sites where vulnerable teens have taken their lives in one of the country's worst series of suicide clusters since 2009. >> 39 at charleston. still no guard. the pod is open. it's been over an hour.

11:35 pm
minimum of average intelligence and dependability. but days after our first story aired, another track watch arrest, this time cypress security guard luke sour. sour pleaded not guilty to charges of lewd behavior after police allegedly found him near the tracks slumped in his car with a bottle of wine and his pants unzipped, according to records obtained by the investigative unit, he told police for every night shift he worked in palo alto, he masturbates in his vehicle. >> these are our tax dollars. there are better ways to use our money than to pay some guy to sit in his car and do that. i mean seriously. >> reporter: dena dersh is the mother of twins. she says her daughter has struggled with depression for years. dena reached out to us because she says they want to destigmatize the conversation about mental health. >> she was in fifth grade, yeah. it was pretty early. and we were surprised. because i didn't realize that kids that young could be depressed. >> reporter: she supports the
11:36 pm
effort to protect teens. but questions the city's lack of transparency. >> nobody is telling us anything. >> reporter: what is it that you want two see at the tracks? >> i want there to be more transparency. i want them to utilize parent input and stop pretending that they can use our tax dollars any way they see fit. >> we weren't going to do that. >> reporter: city manager jim keen is in charge of overseeing contract. >> how you? we caught up with keen before a council meeting after the city declined our interview request to answer questions about track watch. >> what we've done is we've spent lots of money contracting and hiring guards to guard the track. we're developing technology and. >> come on in. >> remote technology right now. >> reporter: keene says palo alto is doing more than any city in the country to address mental health. do you think the city is being transparent about this? >> yes, i do. >> reporter: meanwhile, back on
11:37 pm
the tracks, the guards we watched left their posts unattended during critical hours in the night while trains were still rung. >> and the guard has been in his car text messaging. >> reporter: one guard texted for an hour in his car park down the street from his post, left for another hour, then came back to eat for half an hour. he finally took a quick stroll to his post, then returned to his car. we reached out to cypress security. the owner acknowledged the concerns, but said guards have intervened in several instances to prevent injury, and he noted the company conducts unannounced checks of each site to assure compliance with company policies and expectation. city leaders tell us they have not received any complaints about cypress, but declined to say if they will make any changes. >> responsible. you're the one paying the bill. ands we as stakeholders need to know what is going on. you're accountable to us. thankfully the media is helping us to be on top of it.
11:38 pm
>> reporter: the city says it has received feedback from mental health experts that the track watch program has deterred teen suicides. they say the goal is to increase safety and fosse area positive relationship with the community. all of this underscoring the importance of finding the right people for the job. guys? >> if you have a tip for our investigative unit, give us a call, 888-996-tips or send an e-mail to the unit at nbcbayarea.com. still ahead at 11:00 -- >> i don't want to live in a city that doesn't have a vibrant arts culture. >> ensuring artists have a place to create in the city, even as rents continue to skyrocket. the good news for san francisco's art scene. we'll be right back. the gillette mach 3 turbo

11:43 pm
problem for people in tarts. >> reporter: it stands out against the usual tales from the city's struggling art scene. it's allowing artists and gallery owners like ed gilbert to actually focus on art. >> this is really the forum for galleries to show the art and maybe not have to deal so much with the rest of the mechanics. >> i think this is an encouragement for artists to stay in the bay area. >> reporter: rappaport expects the project will become self-sustaining in a few years. she hopes others with an eye for art and a mind for business will open similar spaces. >> i think people have started to realize that maybe the light at the end of the tunnel isn't the train coming at them. >> reporter: joe rosato jr. >> there might be hope. >> nbc news. let's get your weather right now. might be a surprise or two. >> in terms of the chilly temperatures to wake up to tomorrow morning, you're not going to have to worry about any fog. and we're certainly not seeing that in dublin. at 52 degrees. and from belvedere, looking back
11:44 pm
