this by all accounts at this point looks to hit central and southern california but i got to tell you, we're going to keep a close eye on it because it is only about -- about 150 miles that separate the rainfall from the bay area. a jog to the north and our fortu fortune -- could change but right now all about central california. the storm system out here tomorrow and wednesday along the top of the atmospheric river to increase our rainfall chances. let's get you a look at this and you could see by tuesday on the future-cast, watch the atmospheric river. right here as we put this into motion. you could see how it pushes to the south over santa barbara and southern california. so again, that is where the highest flood threat would be as we head through the next 72 hours. our forecast tomorrow, does show with that atmospheric river beginning to develop, we will get showers from it. right here across morgan hill and san jose and palo alto and moderate rain and pockets with that and it is the reverse of what we normally see.
6:49 pm
north bay is dry but again better chance for the morning commute in the south bay. we undergo a break as that atmospheric river moves to the south tomorrow afternoon. and then our storm system starts to line up by 7:30 at night on tuesday. and begins to bring some heavy downpours at 4:00 in the morning. so when the lot of us are sleeping on wednesday morning, it will be coming down and good. and then we'll hold on to the chance of scattered rainfall through the rest of the wednesday morning commute. but again, early commuters on wednesday, it will be the worst. rainfall totals bringing the highest elevations a lot of rax but we should stay under the 3 inch mark for the highest elevations. in the north bay and santa cruz mountains between one to about two inches and then right here for the peninsula and east bay and the south bay from half an inch to about three quarter inch average for the storm system. my skended forecast does eventually have sunshine. after the storm day tomorrow, we
6:50 pm
do see a lingering spotty chance of a shower on thursday. we get some sunshine in here on friday. that is going to be nice. there is a slight chance of a spotty shower on saturday so nothing to cancel your weekend plans over and then once we hit sunday and also monday it looks as if we should start to see a more additional sunshine come back in. temperatures for the moat part in the 50s through the -- throughout the next six to seven day forecast. and the sierra will get hit and one to three feet of snow is possible starting at 4,000 to 5,000 feet. so based on this storm system and how many days are left in that snow pack season, i don't think there is any way we could end the year at this point below average. >> that is good news. >> good news for the drought. it is been wiped out across most of the state. >> that is good news. >> jeff, thanks a lot. a familiar face might be returning to the warriors. indeed. colin resch talks with the team about the former teammate. hear from them next. warrior aga

representatives and nothing is official and there are things that have to happen and we can't really comment on it until it is official. first it does go through, a deal could be finalized by week's end. the warriors have kept their 15th and final roster spot open to sign a back-up big. bogut will certainly fit the bill. >> whatever works for us. that is bob and coach and front office to figure out and we trust whoever they bring in. as long as he do his job. >> they will get rim protection they've sorely lacks and a great seener and passer and defender and liked by teammates. if he could stay healthy, he could play a key role off the bench with the playoff as approaching in april. in oakland, colin resch, nbc bay area news. >> thank you. coming up at 11:00, from overcharges to mix-ups we investigate questionable charges involving tens of millions of
