6:00 pm
that video was shot in san jose. within a few minutes, hail covered the parking lot. it was really a hail deluge. you could see piles on the side of the 101 in san jose as well. almost looks like snow, doesn't it? >> yeah, it really does. new to a view from the air. these are the hills near livermore. you can see a dusting of snow as sky 7 panned along the ridge line. and this is just outside our abc7 studio in san francisco, down the front steps. hail and rain came down by the bucketful. this is was right around lunchtime. >> something else. we have a team of today's weather for you. laura anthony has been out in the elements today. abc7 news meteorologist drew tuma and weather anchor spencer christian are monitoring the conditions all across california. spencer, let's start you. >> okay. i'm glad you focused on the
6:01 pm
hail, because i think a moment ago i said sleet. we had pea-sized hail at st. helena and san mateo, and snow showers are still fallin in parts of mt. diablo and around the mt. hampton area. here is a look at live doppler 7. the storm is not quite so well-organized as earlier. we still have pockets of mixed precipitation, and the focus right now on the mt. hamilton area once again, where we have some rain down in the lower elevations and some downpours as well. in the higher elevations, it is still snowing. how long will this last and what can we expect next? let's go to meteorologist drew tuma, who has more on what's coming our way. drew? >> yeah, spencer. we still have the threat of more hail and lightning through the evening. we're not out of the woods just yet. storm impact scale. it's a level 1 light system. tonight showers could contain some hail and lightning again. it is for that fact the storm prediction center has continued to place the entire bay area and
6:02 pm
really much of northern california under that threat tonight nderstorm does pop up, well see some hail again likely and even the potential for some lightning. here is the system on the rclockseflow. that low is essentially right over ukiah right now. all these showers offshore you see right now. they're going to move onshore over the next couple hours and renew that chance that you could see some rain in your neighborhood. hour-by-hour, 8:30 later on tonight, there is that peppering of showers if not a couple of storms working through the bay area. a similar story by 11 p.m., we're back on air for abc7 news at 11:00. then first thing tomorrow morning, when you wake up, this rain is out of here, but it will be a chilly morning tomorrow morning. when spencer comes back, he'll look at our overnight lows. >> thanks a lot. today's wild winter weather brought snow to mt. diablo.
6:03 pm
excite excited hikers braved the cold. laura anthony continues on mt. diablo tonight. laura? >> hi, dan. you had to come way up here to see the snow. we're above 3,000 feet, just below the summit. we saw it all up here. whatever you saw down there, we saw it all up here within like 20 minutes. in some cases we saw snow, rain, hail. just a sampling of what everyone is seeing today in the bay area. one had to be almost as high as a jet to see it, but on mt. diablo and peaks throughout the bay area, the wild march storm left a god amount of snow. such a rare happening that it prompted some to hike up, just to see it up close. >> absolutely beautiful. >> absolutely beautiful. >> it began to melt as soon as it settled in. but still. >> it's really nice.
6:04 pm
being outside in the fresh air, everything gets clean. it's just nice to be outside. down below is hail that caught everyone's attention, like in santa rosa, blanketed in a matter of minutes with the tiny ice balls. the situation became dicey on highway 101 nearwindsor. creating hazardous driving conditions that led to several accidents. >> never seen something like this, ever, ever. san francisco, san mateo also received their share of hail while hayward was treated to lightning before the lunch hour. all with skies that occasionally broke with sun and clouds, even a rainbow. a sign for many that there are better days ahead. and perhaps appreciation that mother nature can provide welcome and well needed respite. >> yeah, absolutely. it's good to just get away and be able to kind of walk outside and get away from the crowds as well, especially in the city. i feel a bit more safe.
6:05 pm
>> now just when we thought things had cleared for the afternoon, we had another i think it was more like a hailstorm up here for about 15, 20 minutes. it just came dumping down, but let's show you back live here. this picnic table in front of me. this was not the kind of snow that you could do much more than look at because almost as soon as it landed, it melted. so we did see some folks up here with some sleds, but i can tell you they did not get a lot of sledding in today. live on mount diablo, laura anthony, abc7 news. >> not exactly sledding conditions. thanks very much, laura. that's good stuff. you can track the weather and access the same live doppler 7 that drew and spencer use. just go to our abc7 news bay area app available for roku and other devices. let's turn now to our efforts to build a better bay area by looking out for our public health. statewide, the downward trend of coronavirus activity appears to be slowing. today's number of new cases is
6:06 pm
above average. the test positivity rates averaged over seven days or 14 days are going up. but the number of hospitalized patients is decreasing. and today the number of icu patients dropped below a thousand. santa clara county officials do not believe they'll face repercussions for pushing back against the state's new vaccine distribution plan. our media partners at the bay area news group obtain and email from blue shield telling county officials to disregard the vaccine contract. abc7 news reporter chris nguyen is speaking with county officials. >> reporter: in the county of santa clara, county leaders are pushing back against a plan that would require them to hand over local control of vaccine distribution of blue shield, california. >> each part of the state is not the same. >> reporter: in an interview with abc7 news, county executive jeff smith says the bay area's largest county is now in talks with the state and are hopeful for a firm outcome by the end of the week. as part of the negotiations, the county wants to receive its vaccine supply directly from the state rather than having to go
6:07 pm
through blue shield. they also want to be able to continue using the county's current appointment system, which they say is far superior to the one that was developed by the state. >> some counties need administrative structures. others just need the vaccine. >> reporter: late this afternoon, abc7 news learned that because of low vaccine supply from the state, the county health system has halted the scheduling of first dose appointments in an effort to conserve current inventory for second dose appointments that are already on the books. it's unclear when more appointments will be available. >> my suspicion is that they're trying to divert as much of the vaccine to southern california as possible, and that's not something that we think is acceptable. >> reporter: that's because the state recently announced that 40% of vaccines would be set aside for low income communities based on the healthy places index, the majority of whom are in the south. and as concerns grow over the public/private partnership involving blue shield, only time will tell if it turns out to be
6:08 pm
successful. >> there needs to be a lot more input to blue shield around how to develop an equity lens here. i'm sure that there is a lot of goodwill there, but there is going to be some growing pains. and i think stakeholders need to be at the table. >> reporter: so far the california department of public health says dozens of providers who oversee more dozens of vaccine sites across the state have already sign on to work with blue shield. in san jose, chris nguyen, abc7 news. in the north bay, there is a new effort to help bridge the equity gap when it comes to getting the covid vaccine. the demand for more mobile vaccination clinics are growing. they are reaching more underserved communities. cornell bernard takes a look. >> the first shot. one to go. >> reporter: duane smith is halfway to being vaccinated. he didn't need an appointment for this mobile clinic in marin city. >> most of my family have their first shot, some of their second. so i felt it was the right thing
6:09 pm
to do. >> reporter: 150 vaccinations given at this mobile clinic sponsored in part by marin county public health. last week the mobile clinic gave 300 vaccinations at canal alliance, a nonprofit advocate for the latino community in san jose's canal district, where covid rates were once spiking. today only 5% of people have been vaccinated here. >> there is a need out there to do more efforts in order to be more equitable. >> reporter: community advocate douglas mundo wants to see more opportunities for people lacking access to wifi, computers and transportation, giving everyone accessibility to the shot. >> to places where they can go and what we call walking distance, you know. >> reporter: new data shows mobile vaccination clinics are helping to bridge the equity gap when it comes to giving vaccinations to folks who want it. new state numbers show black and latino individuals only made up 4 and 20% of all visitors to the
6:10 pm
oakland coliseum mega vaccination rate, but those numbers were much higher at mobile vaccination site, 25 and 33% respectively. >> i think it's a great idea. anything that we can do to bring the vaccine to where people are, is always a great idea. >> reporter: san rafael councilmember wants more mobile vaccination sites in underserved communities. the county says it's working on a plan to expand clinic, even to local churches. in marin county, cornell bernard, abc7 news. now as of today, all but two bay area counties are in the red tear of restrictions. sonoma and contra costa counties are the only remaining counties in the purple tier, again, that's more restrictive. this is the first day in the red tier for santa cruz, solano and alameda counties that means the return of indoor dining, which was good news for customers at bill's cafe in pleasanton who were able to get out of the rain and get some food. gyms can open at 10% capacity. but in neighboring contra costa county, gyms can only operate
6:11 pm
outside. former gym in walnut creek says it will have outdoor and indoor workouts when the county moves to the red tier. >> we'll move some equipment. we're going keep the majority out here. and then we'll keep this going. i'm anticipating keeping this going some level through the rest of this calendar year. >> to move to the red tier, counties are to meet the metrics for two consecutive weeks. and because alameda county is in the red tier, it's back to in-person learning in pleasanton tomorrow for students from sixth grade through high school. the announcement makes pleasanton the first district in the county to fully reopen for in-person learning at all grade levels. parents at foothill and ambassador valley high schools plan to line the streets leading up to the campuses to cheer on students as they enter the schools tomorrow morning for the first time in a long time. for many students stuck doing school online, they're missing motivation. but next you'll see where some in oakland have been able to find inspiration. hospitals across the country
6:12 pm
and here in the bay area are reporting a significant increase in suicidal ideation and mental health crises in young people. that's tomorrow on abc7 news at 6:00. join us for that and more on
6:13 pm
we are the thrivers. women with metastatic breast cancer. our time... ...for more time... ...has come. living longer is possible- and proven in postmenopausal women taking kisqali plus fulvestrant. in a clinical trial, kisqali plus fulvestrant helped women live longer with hr+, her2- metastatic breast cancer. and it significantly delayed disease progression. kisqali can cause lung problems or an abnormal heartbeat, which can lead to death. it can cause serious skin reactions, liver problems, and low white blood cell counts that may result in severe infections.
6:14 pm
tell your doctor right away if you have new or worsening symptoms, including breathing problems, cough, chest pain, a change in your heartbeat, dizziness, yellowing of the skin or eyes, dark urine, tiredness, loss of appetite, abdomen pain, bleeding, bruising, fever, chills, or other symptoms of an infection, a severe or worsening rash, are or plan to become pregnant, or breastfeeding. avoid grapefruit during treatment. ask your doctor about living longer with kisqali. as distance learning continue, some students are finding it hard to stay motivated understandably, leading to learning loss and other issues as well. one school in oakland has seen the number of chronic absences almost double. >> and tonight we continue our week-long look at learning loss with a story of the challenges of online learning at mcclymonds high school. it's part of our online series,
6:15 pm
mack, a pandemic school story. >> distance learning is definitely a struggle for a lot of students. some students are doing well and some students are not. percentage-wise, there is an increase in chronic absenteeism. so all our students have the ability to connect. some of them still aren't connecting. >> hello? >> this is miss alberta calling from mcclymonds high school. how you? >> good. and you? >> i'm good. >> i'm just calling to check up on you do to see how you're doing with your attendance and your grades. you been missing any classes? >> no. >> once a student reaches three to six absences, i am responsible for outreach to parents to find out why their student has missed so many
6:16 pm
classes. they're at home so we can't monitor them, you know, as much as we would be able to if they were in the building. >> when we in person learning, whenever i stand in the hallways, i are ask a student, what did you learn today? that's so important. but it's hard to do that through distance learning unless you called in and saying hey, how did it go today? what did you learn today? how was your classes? and they need that. this area that we live in, that we work in, that our school is in, there is a lot of trauma. there is a lot of crime in our neighborhoods. we don't have proper grocery stores. >> and then you have some students who don't have nobody at home, who has nobody to push them. my motto is all you got to do is roll over and press a link. click a link. click a link and you in school. that's all you have to do. and some students don't feel like it's important, like it's
6:17 pm
not school today. >> in 2018-2019, our severe chronically absent students was at 17.2%. last year, we decreased it to 11%. this year school year is back up 17.9. >> being at home, you kind of lose that motivation that you have, because you're not getting tat day to day experience that you usually do. when we're at school and we see our friends, it feel like it push you to want to do better in class. but now it's like our school and our home is all in one. like you can't really go and separate the two. so you can't really get away from home now. >> students are kind of on autopilot. you don't receive that same fire, that same passion, excitement for learning that, you know, we did when we were in person. there is a real lack of motivation because i think a lot of it is still unknown. when will this be over?
6:18 pm
when can we be in person, when will students be hands on again. we've been lucky. we have worked with the crucible, and we are doing in-person classes with welding, glass working, and even ceramics, and students can sign up and get out of the house. >> cover. >> my engineering teacher really pushed me to join us because he felt it was good opportunity for students to get out and have fun. it gave me a piece of that school experience again, just being around people, able to talk to them and laugh. i felt like i was in that school environment again, but just in a different setting. >> really appreciate hearing from those teachers and young people. and follow the students at mcclymonds as the football team finally gets to practice on campus. the story continues on our abc7

6:23 pm
we've had hail and snow and rain and thunder and lightning, and we had a rainbow. i have a picture i want to show you. this was taken late this afternoon. a rainbow over san leandro. i hope we can pull that up. can we pull that up? i'm waiting for something to pop. there it is. that was taken by my son, jason. the dude. thank you, dude. great shot of the rainbow. i hope you found that pot of gold. on we go to live doppler 7. and you can see that the storm that has brought us this variety pack of weather is sort of breaking up now with the little pockets of light precipitation scattered here and there. but it's still snowing in the mt. hamilton area. s the cold air is still with us. that's going to be with us for a while. here is kind of a scary looking view from emeryville looking at dark clouds in the west. 50 degrees right now in san francisco. oakland, 53. 49 at mountain view. 50, san jose. 40 at morgan hill and half moon bay. and looking across the embarcadero from our rooftop camera, we see some wet pavement there. it has been a little rainy in

6:25 pm
estimates. we expect additional rainfall totals on top of what we already have of anywhere from just a couple hundreds of an inch up to maybe a quarter inch at livermore. over in the sierra, a winter storm warning remains in effect until 7:00 the evening. may see another 2 to 6 inches of snow. chilly everywhere. low temperatures in the mid- to upper 30s in the inland valleys and upper 30s near the coast and bay. highs tomorrow low to mid-50s at the coast. and mainly mid- to upper 50s just about everywhere else. here is the accuweather seven-day forecast. it gets sunnier and milder on friday and saturday. we spring ahead to daylight saving time overnight saturday night into sunday. rain returns on sunday. and some of it mei-linger into early monday. and after that we got some clearing and milder weather in the middle of next week. dan and ama? >> all right. sounds good. thank you, spencer. all right. still to come, a $1400 check could be coming your way.
