over crossing. that's where the chp activity is. if you come down towards university you are well clear of the crash there. you can take bay front express. take a look at our palo alto camera. you can see from time to time these cars coming past. what i think is people are getting off at marsh. be prepared not to use 101 through that crash because of a deadly crash. the coroner has been called. we will track that as far as the progress goes. green sensors once again as we look at the wider view, and the pink and white means a chance of icy conditions and perhaps a little snow. cold out there. >> yeah, be careful out there especially for some of the

interior sheltered valleys. we have an active radar still. if you are traveling down to southern california the next couple of days, check your travel conditions. this blue and pink mix you see here is a wintry mix. we are expecting showers to pick up around 7:00 a.m., and as the showers pick up, that's more likely to see some of the elevation snow here below the 2,000 mark. showers continue through today. look at your daytime highs. barely any 50s at the map. we will top out in the upper 40s. overall, oakland 47 degrees. these are our daytime highs, guys, not lows. i want to take you through the timeline here. we are going to be cloudy and cold, which is the reason we are
4:51 am
seeing a little shower activity. by tonight showers are going to roll through and those snow levels are going to near the 2,500 mark, especially through the north bay. the rain estimate, we are going to pick up a couple 0.01 of an inch. this active weather pattern will continue over the next couple of days. you may want to hold off a little longer in the south lake tahoe conditions. there was a winter storm warning and they downgraded that into wednesday morning, but it's still going to be icy and they are working to clear the roads and your best bet is to wait until friday when we see things really calm down. it's going to be cold on new year's eve night, so if you plan to be out and about, expect low 30s right around that midnight hour. i will send it back to you -- no, wait, i have climate in
