5:21 pm
50s. the next five days will transition to a drier pattern. seeing those temperatures climb approaching wednesday and more clouds thursday and friday. north bay and tri-valley, same trend there. more clouds coming in towards the end of the week. as we jump forward now and look for the next chance of seeing rain, it looks like it is going to come in towards the end of next week. more snow. maybe another 2 to 3 inches of snow up towards the sierra in time for next weekend. lava flowing from hawaii's kilauea volcano. they're going to door to door letting people know that evacuations may be coming in the next few days.
