back to our microclimate weather coverage. we're seeing new video of the pounding that yosemite took in last weekend's storms. you can see bridges almost completely submerged, campgrounds flooded. rangers did close the park on friday and saturday. it reopened sunday but a lot of those areas are still being cleaned up. and quite soggy. and bracing for another batch of bad weather, chain controls in effect on i-80 coming up to the sierra. highway patrol's already reporting some spinouts which close parts of 80. national weather service has issued a winter weather advisory for elevations above 4,000 feet and that should last through tomorrow morning. let's bring in meteorologist rob mayeda. you've been talking about in the last couple of days saying it's going to be a little iffy heading up to tahoe. >> conditions still really rough in the sierra. and chances overnight those conditions will stay through tomorrow morning. we'll show you what we're seeing right now from the resort at squaw creek. it is snowing sideways. got gusty industry up to 40 miles per hour times 12 miles per hour right now, you see it's
30 there. the cooler air has arrived. and now snow levels beginning to drop closer to 4,000 feet, which interestingly enough will have an impact on our weather during the day tomorrow. not only cooler high temperatures but some showers that may drop and strong hail. for the sierra it's snow we're tracking here. could see another eight to ten inches of snow by mid-morning tomorrow for the bay area, right now things have relatively dried out compared to what we saw earlier this evening. 52 in san francisco, breezy and chilly outside. we'll take you over to dublin where we've got some showers around the tri-valley. 43 degrees. in san jose after the soaking we aw at 8:00 to 9:00, right now 51 and temperatures during the day tomorrow will likely be staying in the 50s for most of the bay area. that was a view of this evening. the main event from 6:30 to about 9:00 and now looking at the scattered showers, which are still moving across the bay, about to drop into san jose and fremont, you can see a pretty good cell approaching 680 in the
sunol. this is going to be the nature of the way the weather will be shaping up as we did into tomorrow. widely scattered showers. hit and miss from the morning commute but probably we'll see more of those showers along the coast early in the day. also i think the east bay hills, those showers that develop with freezing levels close to 4,000 feet, might involve a little bit of small hail at times. the peak heating of the day, you will see those showers popping up especially in the north bay hills. as the sun begins to set the atmosphere stabilizes and from about 7:00 to this time tomorrow night no more showers in the forecast. how much rain from here? looks like we might see, depending on if you get one of those showers during the afternoon tomorrow, less than a tenth of an inch of rain. so the main rain event is over but you've still got to keep the umbrella on standby for another day tomorrow. and the jacket for the afternoon. look at those temperatures, upper 50s. 60 in san jose. 50s and low 60s for oakland
toward the tri-valley. plus the wind will make it feel cooler outside. mid 50s around san francisco and north bay temperatures in the 50s and 60s. as you get into friday and saturday we're going to see a warm-up as the seven-day forecast shows at the bottom of the screen. saturday, by the way, looks to be the warmest day for the end of the week. we can't have a dry weekend. sunday clouds spilling spilling on in. w50ekd plans, saturday is just fine but as we head toward sunday evening that looks to be the next chance of rain showing up as he with head toward the beginning of next week. so it will feel more like winter outside. breezy and cooler. passing showers. might see some hail with those showers along the hilltops but then we get a nice break with mid 70s making a comeback but more april showers there to wrap up the weekend too. >> they'll be bringing may flowers. >> a lot of them at this point. >> rob, thanks a lot. up next, by land, sea, and soon to be by air? an out of the box idea from the a's. for their proposed ballpark.
