it's clearing up a bit. this is our break, so let's talk about how much rain we've already measured in a few spots as we check out some of those rainfall totals that measured already over two inches of rain in guerneville, almost 2 inches there. el sobrante measured an inch-and-a-half. in redwood city just under a half an inch in oakley. very significant as we talk about some of our airports and some nearby stations reporting daily rainfall records. so we'll talk more about that in the next half hour. we are seeing the bulk of this first round of rain pushing over the sierras. now those temperatures are dropping we are seeing snow dropping as well. we have a few lingering showers as expected. as we walk out the door, we're seeing showers moving through northern sonoma and napa counties. we are seeing isolated cells that have been moving through
san mateo. right there on the san mateo bridge, some of the showers coming through. we also have rain moving through richmond, where we have already measured pretty high rainfall totals near the beach in that area. as we get a look at what's happening in the tri-valley, some rain moving through livermore, extending over the hills, also moving out of mill hes th -- milpetas. then the next storm system starts to move in. by noon, we are seeing rain increasing as we look anywhere from the south bay to the east bay and also into the north bay. going into the afternoon to evening hours, this is when we could see enough energy for there to be a few thunderstorms developing and we'll have to watch out for some thunder and lightning in a few spots along with some heavy rain by tomorrow morning as you with getting ready to head out. we're still tracking light showers moving through. but the general trend will be for most of this to taper off.
this is how much additional rain we may feel. just dropped off there. we will back it up again and see if we can get that on there. so we're going to see the potential of getting over an inch-and-a-half of rain. so once that rain moves out tomorrow, tomorrow afternoon is looking pretty nice. then going into saturday, the next storm system arrives and by late morning we start to see the rain in the north bay, the rest of the afternoon is pretty much looking like all bets are off. we will see those showers spreading across the bay area. a couple breaks by sunday morning, very early if you get up before sunrise, the rest of the day is looking soggy with more waves of showers that may continue into our monday morning. as far as sierra snow, it is coming down, we will see initially about a foot of snow, then there will be a lot more snow. i don't know if we've ever had this much snow so late in the season. it looks like next week, those storms keep on coming for the
sierras. we have to go back and look alt some of those records, looking at our 7-day forecast for the inland areas, some temperatures reaching into the low 60 it's going to stay off and on wet until next week. the storm door, mike, has opened. we will wait and see when it shuts again. >> not closing. you talk a couple more over the next week. a signature alert carrisigalert continues. we are warning about wet roads, we have slick conditions, northbound 880 at 287, reports of a smaller crash there. it should be off to the shoulder, it popped up. minor crashes across the bay. another single car spinout. that's what we typically see when slippery road lose their grip on the roadway. slow down, folks, allow the

the entire state. we wanted to know why. so we spent time on patrol with officers as they interacted with residents there. we also talked to stake holders from around the community. a community with a high violent crime rate. we discovered several issues, including underpaid, inexperienced and overwhelmed police officers. as well as a lack of diversity among the ranks, compared with the diverse groups of people who live in villejo. are there things you can do better? more diversity, more training, in order to reduce the number of these shootings? >> certainly, we can strive to do better every single day. we are only focused on a police problem, we're not considering it a community problem. why is our crime rates so high? why are these shootings occuring? >> coming up, we investigate the reality in villejo and show you first hand when the guns are drawn and death is only a hair trigger away. that's later tonight on 11 on
