70 degrees. down through concord, 72. upper 60s along the peninsula. the reason that our temperatures are going to be slightly cooler is because we're going to notice an increase in cloud cover tomorrow. this is all thanks to an arrival of a system, and that's going to not only bring cloud cover, but it's also going to bring the chance of seeing some rain monday night into early tuesday morning. so as of right now, the latest model runs show the rain moving into the north bay nationally monday. then it becomes a little more widespread by the afternoon. as far as rain totals, anywhere from about a quarter of an inch to possibly a half an inch for the coastal mountains. the rain moves out rather quickly on tuesday, and i have some really good news. we're going to see another warm-up, but this one's actually going to come in the form of 80s on the map. we've been enjoying those upper 70s. that's because a pretty dominant ridge of high pressure is going to really hang on tight. that's what's going to bring the 80s in the forecast. all right. so talking about that system that's going to make its way in
the form of some rain into monday, it's also expected to bring some sierra snow. more snow on top of an already pretty impressive snowpack. i do want to give you a reminder, though. as you head out tomorrow, whether you're driving back or have friends driving back, there is a lake wind advisory in effect starting tomorrow morning at 11:00 a.m. to 11:00 p.m. we're talking about southwesterly winds, 15 to 25-mile-per-hour. then we're expecting that snow to move in monday and tuesday. now, if you're wondering about the next seven days, let me show you what's going on. again, tomorrow, very nice day. filtered sunshine for the most part. you'll probably notice some coastal clouds early on and it will really get nice into the afternoon. then monday, very fast-moving system moves out tuesday morning. then things really warm up thursday into friday. >> you can't really complain about monday, terry. >> i wasn't really. i'm not seriously complaining. just a little tiny bit. still to come, we've got highlights from tonight's first warriors playoff game of the
year. >> that's right. and we've got "snl." >> hi, guys. i'm emma stone and i'm hosting "saturday night live" with musical guest bts and we're on next. >> they're behind us. >> i know. >> okay. >> i know. >> okay. it's on! get to the ross spring shoe event to score the latest styles for the whole family... ...and something for you. oh yeah. that's yes for less. you heard me - 20 to 60 percent off department store prices! at the ross spring shoe event. on now!
