first off we start off on a very mild note this morning. increasing clouds and fog. we have rain in the afternoon forecast as well as the early evening. nothing really substantial as far as measurement is concerned. and then a dry saturday is slated with more rain chances on sunday evening. so we have this area of low pressure. looks promising. the only problem is all the rain is moving well north of the bay area. that storm has a lot to the do, a big job. it's got to bust through a lot of dry air mass but looking ahead towards next week and there's a good possibility of the stormy weather returning right here to the bay area by the end of next week. this is your futurecast. as we walk you through your afternoon you can see into the evening hours that we have some light rain around the inverness area. only problem is the front as it sags to the south is going to fall apart so that sets the stage for your saturday with mostly sunny skies. and then we do have temperatures still slightly above average but nowhere near the mid-70s and high 70s we experienced earlier this week.
here's your sunday. we begin to cloud back up. there's a chance of rain to the north of the bay area but then again it falls apart very quickly at the seams. these are the anemic rainfall totals we're anticipating from today's system. again, less than .305." sunshine in throughout the central valley today t63 monterey for this getaway friday. spring-like conditions in the greater lake tahoe area. your tahoe report we have snow at least a chance of it on the north and south shores. 12 lifts available at kirkwood. 60s to low 70s today with a high surf advisory in place. some of these swells up to 14 feet. meanwhile your extended forecast, it does call for sunny skies on monday through wednesday. have yourself a great weekend. thank you, roberta. animals recently poisoned with a common plant. coming up next, our pet expert weighs in on the dangers of oleander and the symptoms to look out for. >> we want to know what's cool about your school? email your nomination to us at email@example.com. we may come and feature your school on the show. ==============
