it's going to keep temperatures in the 20s and 30s the next couple mornings, but the other thing is we'll see several different disturbances moving in, and that would bring us some on again/off again shower chances just like we saw through tonight. the first thing i want you to be concerned about is the cold weather for tomorrow. it's dangerously cold. you'll have some ice to scrape on your windshield in tri-valley, the peninsula 34, frost possible. also notice down to 27 in the north bay. that's my coldest average. san francisco even a heavier jacket, down to 38 degrees primarily you're going to need to dress in layers as we head through tomorrow morning. bring in those pets inside, and certainly cover up sensitive plants. coldest part of the morning will happen around 6:57 tomorrow right as that sun rises.

4:19 pm
rainfall, but nonetheless keep the embrilla handy. we're starting boo the 20s and 30s, and rain chances through wednesday, thursday, sunday and also on monday. so things are getting active. it's changing, just not the super-wet storms we need this time of year. we'll take it as it comes. >> interesting to see the snow video around the bay area as well. thanks, jeff. did you hear it? the national anthem performance being heavily criticized, and we hear from fergie, too on our twi:
