temperatures all around the country. if you look at today's highs nationwide, we don't often show that to you, but it's part of the weather story affecting the bay area. temperatures below 20 degrees from minneapolis towards the northern plains. look at dallas and little rock, highs today in the 70s. tomorrow, 30s. that is weather whiplash occurring in about three-quarters of the country. and around here, look how quickly our temperatures have dropped. you've got belvedere down to 41 degrees, san francisco, closer to the water, not as cold but relatively chilly, 46o alto, 47. closer to dublin, 40 degrees, almost 30s, already in the tri valley and into san jose right now. we have those temperatures in the mid-40s. napa has already dropped to 39 degrees. we're running cooler than the same time yesterday. nine degrees cooler in fact at napa, where we began the day in the low 30s. subtract nine degrees, gives you
a good indication where things are headed tomorrow morning. as we head towards tomorrow morning, most of the bay area could see some upper 20s to low 30s. solano county to the central valley, prime agriculture concerns here. you could see some ice damage or freezing with that hard freeze warning for locations that could have as much as four hours below 28 degrees tonight. coldest spots likely around the north valley. it's canadian air conditioning coming into the bay area, dry north wind, clear skies, will keep the weekend dry. but chilly even during the afternoon. monday morning will be pretty chilly as well, slowly warming as we head towards the middle part of the week. for the morning, upper 20s in livermore, 32 in san jose, upper 30s near san francisco. as we move into the afternoon, notice the temperatures there in the low 50s around san jose. likely still seeing some upper 40s out around livermore as we head towards the afternoon. as we go through the week,
there's one chance we could see showers. not on tuesday, but then wednesday night into thursday, here comes the system which we think may bring us some showers. a relatively drier system without access to trip to moisture. if anything, it will bring in more clouds and moisture in the air. it will have to bring those overnight temperatures up. so mid-week, that one chance of showers into thursday. friday, heading towards christmas weekend, christmas eve, to christmas day on sunday. looks dry, abnormally dry this time of year. seven-day forecast with the weekend, one chance we think of rain on thursday. meantime, the headlines will continue to be those cold, frosty temperatures. freezing temperatures likely in the valley. san francisco and coast, overnight temperatures on the left side of the screen, 30s and 40s. across the valleys, 20s and 30s. probably another round of this tomorrow night into monday. a slow warm-up and daytime highs
the holidays is of course the giving, especially when it is very unexpected. >> we're paying for someone's bagels as they're walking up to the counter to pay for them, just saying merry christmas. >> in san carlos, you can thank a group of local families who for the third year in a row hit the streets for operation joy, as they call it. they and friends from their church are criss-crossing san carlos buying people meals, handing out gift cards, sharing holiday wishes because they're in the spirit. they say even if the people receiving the gifts don't really need the money, they get something out of the exchange. >> sometimes you see people walking along, in their zone, doing their own thing, you stop them and say merry christmas, and they're like, somebody actually was kind enough to think of me. i don't know, it's just that kindness that people don't get maybe enough. >> this year, operation joy even made a stop at the mcdonald's drive-through. they surprised people here by
paying for everyone to have christmas. the ultimate happy meal. >> indeed it is. the silicon valley gay men's chorus has a member who went quite a long way to be part of the choir. >> the story begins with a coincidence. >> he told me his name was jason. i was like, okay. >> they said, you're both jason, how will we tell you part? i said, you can call me j.w. >> what's your middle name? >> his eyes got as big as saucers because -- >> we have the same middle name as well. >> especially moving from arkansas and the south and from very conservative evangelical christian environment, and coming out as a gay man all at once, it was culture changes on multiple levels. i had to completely change my identity because i lost everything.
i lost my job for coming out as a gay man. it was also the end of my previous marriage, because i had been married to my wife for ten years, with three daughters. i started singing when i was in high school. the friend that helped me move out to the bay area had been involved in the gay men's chorus. he said, i think it would be a really good place for you to check out, it would give you a community to plug into. and i was suddenly introduced to over 50 gay men when i had deliberately avoided gay people for 36 years. and i saw that there was a wonderful diversity, just like there is in the straight community or any other type of community. i was happy. i was allowed to start flourishing as an open gay man, having the mooring of the chorus to make sure i didn't get lost
in the storm of change that was my life at the time. the part of the divorce decree was that i was not allowed to tell them i was gay. it was put in there if i met somebody, they weren't allowed to meet that person if they became my partner. it was very punitive. in 2010, i started working to change that divorce decree. now i have visitation like any divorced person. i'm hoping the fear has abated. it did them a lot of good to see their mom and me be able to sit down for thanksgiving dinner together. it was -- we were a family. and it hasn't been that way in a long time. >> the name of the show is "sparkle," there's another performance tonight, a matinee tomorrow. for more information go to nbcbayarea.com.
