then down to san ramon and pleasanton and also livermore, and napa as well as santa rosa and down 101 to san rafael. all those areas with freezing temperatures and then we warm up into the mid 50s today, 58 degrees in the north bay. and looking at or next chance of rain in the forecast showing that there will be some showers moving into parts of the south bay. this will be a storm system off to the south and east of us. so only a few parts of the bay area may see some of that rain. as we go into saturday, it will be very close by. something we'll put in the forecast just in case there's a shift in the direction of that weather system and then for the new year, it looks like we could see some more wet weather moving in along with chilly temperatures, but not showing a lot of rain here, showing the potential of up to a half an inch for most of us, and then a big chill may be ahead as we go into the first week of 2017,
cool air dipping in as high pressure sets up just to the west of us. temperaturewise, we are looking at some highs in the mid to upper 50s in san francisco and some spotty rain for the weekend. happy new year, we'll say that, with a chance of some showers moving in on sunday in the near term. we'll enjoy a nice warmup. up to 66 degrees on thursday inland. we'll keep an eye on that. let's head over to vianey for a look at what's happening on the roadways. >> i don't think anybody is in a rush to get to work this morning because the roads are looking pretty good out there. i think a lot of people might still be sleeping in from the holidays and that holiday eating. right now the roads overall looking pretty clear. chp was reporting slowing on your san jose 880. that's because there appeared to be a car that was actually traveling through the center divider and ended up blocking the center divider. we'll keep an eye on this right now. not showing any slowing down or any backup. of course, that could all change as more people begin to hit the roads early this morning.
