11:18 pm
seven flights canceled today. it seems small compared to what they're going to there, but seven flights and there were 120 delays. let's turn our attention to weather. you both have lived out on the east coast. you know what that weather is like firsthand. >> it is no joke. and just to show you kind of the magnitude of what they're dealing with, i do have a radar look of what it looks like this. is the reason why irthere is still so much concern as we head in the next couple hours. because a winter storm warning does remain in effect for that area where. you see the green, that's where heavy precipitation is rolling through. the white is a wintry mix, which means the combination of snow and rain which creates the hazard of sleet, and we're still expecting to see a couple more inches of snow fall through along with the freezing overnight temperatures. this is going to remain a big concern for all of the folks heading out for the next several hours as the system continues to make its exit, but unfortunately, that winter storm warning will remain in effect
11:19 pm
through tomorrow night for that exact reason because of that wintry mix. so we keep a close eye on that storm system. meanwhile, bringing it back home, we're dealing with our own system. ours of course nothing compared to that. it's a very weak cold front, and you can see it just over northern california. our northern california through eureka. if i zoom in, you can see we're not getting much from the rain showers yet. but santa rosa might start to get a trickle or two in the next few hours. the hours o models seem to show it dissipating and not reaching anything south into the overnight hours. san francisco right now, the temperatures are in the 50s. so let's talk about that hour-by-hour outlook. so i can give you a better timeline for this. if you notice by 5:00 a.m., a lot of this rain seems to be sticking north of the golden gate bridge. it isn't until about 6:00, 7:00 when we start to see a line of showers push down through half moon bay, palo alto, hayward, the oakland area, and into the tri-valley as well. that sets up for a pretty messy morning commute as he head
11:20 pm
towards monday. but the south bay not really getting any measurable rain. the south bay not really a big concern. and then we see it clear out by about 12:00 your lunch hour. all that will be left behind is a lot of cloud cover and the cooler temperatures as the cold front moves through. when it dpirkts cloud cover will clear and that will make for very, very cold overnight lows. we're talking 30. every hour that goes by, the models are picking up less and less rain. check out santa rosa. earlier it was picking up a little over tenth of an inch. not even a tenth of an inch through there. and no measurable rain. the model is not picking up any measurable rain in the south bay. this is the rpm model. we also have a good santa seeing cooler temperatures tomorrow. some spots will rain a couple of degrees cooler. in through oakland only upper 50s. concord, 58 degrees. livermore, 58. if you enjoyed today's kind of cloudy overcast skies mixed with
11:21 pm
the cooler temperatures, that's a lot of what you'll see tomorrow once that rain makes its exit. into the overnight hours is when we'll start to see the colder temperatures. san francisco, overnight lows will remain in the 40s. we clear out of the rain by tomorrow evening, and then we keep the dry conditions in through tuesday, wednesday, and thursday. just looking out ahead over the next several days, our next chance of rain will move in friday, and that's not a big rainmaker. it's next sunday right now the models are showing the possibility of better chances of seeing more rain next sunday into monday. and of course the higher elevations area like the north bay and things like that are expected to see a better chance of more rain. so that will be a much more measurable storm system. >> all right. we need it. >> we do. we always need rain in california. >> right. bianna, thanks a lot. coming up, a closer look at cbd oil. a lot of talk about the risk versus the benefits. >> doctors put it under the microscope, when we return.
