care of that person who is impaired. remember, there's not enough of us to take care of the road alone. >> last year, five people were killed in bay area accidents over the christmas holiday. the enforcement period will last through the weekend. meantime, a lot of people still trying to get to their comats derkerations. charles cliff clifford is -- christmas destinations. charles cliff order is live. how is it going? >> reporter: i think most people have made it to their destination for christmas eve by now. but earlier today, sfo was experiencing delays between 30 minutes to an hour, peen the amount -- between the amount of people and the clouds causing delays. maybe an hour ago, i couldn't find any delayed flights. things are looking pretty good here at sfo. there are some hearty souls traveling late on christmas

at least not for now. so the wind gusts ongoing. you see at 10:00, the blue on your screen represents wind gusts in the 20-mile-an-hour range. after midnight, things start to calm down and you see by 7:00 in the morning when we hit our morning lows, we are going to be seeing calmer conditions. that is going to allow temperatures to drop in the 30s and low 40s. if those winds die down a little sooner, we might see more 30s across napa, vallejo, fairfield and also concord and down into pleasanton. 37 in livermore, 39 in sunnyvale. a little bit more mild in san francisco. that's to be expected. 46 there. the afternoon brings us turns in the 50s. in the south, 57 in san jose. 56 in los gatos. low 50s tomorrow for antioch. brentwood will be in the low 50s. mid-50s in fairfield. 56 in vallejo. 56 oakland and san leandro. 50s at the coast, down the peninsula and in the north bay tomorrow afternoon.
as for snow in the sierra, it's still ongoing but it's wifernding down. you see the whole region basically only seeing the snow. the green shows rain. snow levels have dropped to lake level. so we'll probably pick up anywhere between 1 and 3 inches of snow at lake level and up to a foot in the higher elevations. that includes what we've already seen out there today. we'll have some snow early tomorrow morning. and then clearing skies but pretty chilly, in the 20s -- in the 20s tomorrow and friday. on saturday we'll start to warm things up a little bit. here is a look at your extended forecast, christmas day, sunny skies, but chilly both in the morning and the afternoon. we'll stay cool into friday, saturday, and sunday. in fact, very similar weather expected all the way through the extended forecast. a developing story, a lab technician working at the cdc in atlanta might have been exposed to the ebola virus. that person now being
