building a better bay area, moving forward finding solutions, this is abc7 news. at last badly needed rain finally returned today to the bay area arriving right around lunchtime. it made for a soggy few hours as much of the bay area got wet to the end of their weekend, but it's not enough to help our drought. úwith that we say good and thank you for joining us. i'm dion lim. the rain today didn't leave a lot behind. experts say a majorit of california is dealing with drought conditions and that applies to the bay area as well. abc7 news reporter j.r. stone talked with fire and water officials who could be taking action as soon as this week. >> reporter: if you blinked on sunday, it's very possible you missed the rain, drizzle or whatever you'd like to call it,
bad news as places like santa rosa had been expecting half an inch of rain. >> the reality is we ended up with quite a bit less. so we're faced with what potentially is a long, dry summer. >> reporter: the assistant fire marshal says their agency is likely to officially declare an early start to fire season in a matter of weeks. those who crunch the numbers say the outlook is not a good one. >> i just looked at the numbers. 85% of california is in severe, extreme or exceptional drought. compare that to last year, only 12% of the state was at that same level. >> reporter: numbers that haven't been seen since 2015. those with the water agency east bay m.u.d. say their board will vote tuesday on declaring a state one drought that would ask for a 10% voluntary reduction of water use but would not impact the cost of your water. >> so in the east bay it is it
looking like the dryest year ever for us. right now there is no added financial burden to our customers. >> reporter: much of that water supply comes from the sierra foothills where we are currently at about 50% of average yearly precipitation. some of the recent bay area fires have cleared fire fuels, but in locations where past fires have burned it's a different story. >> there's a lot of those areas that have regrown, have regrown with invasive types of species, scotch broom and other types of things where in some cases it's worse than it was in 2017. >> reporter: as for water conservation, officials agree we are using much less water now than we were before previous droughts and firefighters and homeowners are much better prepared for wildfires. j.r. stone, abc7 news. after a nearly two-week pause the johnson & johnson vaccine will return to vaccination sites in the bay area as early as
this week. abc7 news reporter dustin dorsey has the response from local health leaders. >> reporter: another vaccine has reentered the fight against covid-19, the johnson & johnson vaccine facing a two-week pause following serious side effects across the country, but in a joint statement today from the eight bay area countries and city of berkeley, health leaders say the risk of the rare clotting disorder is low and that j&j can safely be administered again. the san mateo county supervisor says this is huge. >> this pandemic will be with us for a while, but it gives us greater, greater hope to return back to normalcy. the j&j, putting it into the vaccine mix, is a game changer. >> reporter: he expects the return of j&j and a larger allotment of vaccines from the state will help keep the county mass vax sites open. he adds while residents in san
mateo county won't get a decision on whether or not they get the j&j at a given location, it will be well advertised when people book an appointment. meanwhile here at levi stadium mass vaccination site in santa clara county residents we spoke to are mixed whether or not it's safe to return to the johnson & johnson vaccine to the public. >> i think it's great. i'm glad that they evaluated its safety. i think that really gives me confidence that all three vaccines are really safe. >> it's a little scary because you don't know the risks and if you would, you know, get a blood clot or not. i mean for me my kind of thinking is if i went in and they were only offering johnson walk away and say i'll come back another way. >> even birth control gives women a bunch of blood clots. so i think there's a lot of other medicine out there that's worse than what we're taking here. so i think there's a lot of conspiracy around, but i think they're fine. >> reporter: when we reached out to the county health department, they told us the single-dose vaccine will resume as soon as educational materials from the state are accessible so community members
can make an informed decision, a decision hopefully to get the bay area out of the pandemic. >> the governor said we're looking at the june 15th date, the magic date when we're all open. i was really, really concerned that that date was a date that we weren't going to be able to hit, you know, and now as j&j a comes more into play, i feel a lot more optimistic. >> reporter: in the south bay, dustin dorsey, abc7 news. >> for more information about the race to vaccinate, head www.abc7news.com/vaccine. we've posted this interactive vaccine tracker that shows just how many people have gotten the shot where you live. moving on, it was an oscars unlike any other tonight. a new location, a whole different vibe with the pandemic and some historic wins. abc's zohreen shah joins us live from the dolby theater with the highlights from hollywood's biggest night. by the way, you look totally
glamorous. i think your outfit is one of the highlights, tort : thank y so good to be with you and what a big night it was. we just learned a little while ago the best picture of the year went to "nomadland," anthony hopkins taking the best actor award, frances mcdormand taking the best actress award, a huge night with a lot of surprises and a historic night as well, of course. >> welcome to the 93rd oscars. >> reporter: the academy awards for the first time at union station in downtown l.a., dramatically different than we've ever seen it. >> this was indeed a hard year for everyone, but our love of movies helped to get us through. it made us feel less isolated and connected us when we were apart. >> reporter: although for motion pictures biggest night, all acceptance speeches required to be given in person or over satellite, no zoom allowed. the best original song nominees
performing at a preshow, not during the actual telecast. >> and the oscar goes to chloe zhao, "nomadland." >> reporter: best supporting actor going to -- >> daniel kaluuya, "judas and the black messiah." >> reporter: and for best supporting actress? >> yuh-jung youn. >> reporter: and best actress going to? >> frances mcdormand, "nomadland." >> reporter: and best actor? >> anthony hopkins. >> and the oscar goes to "nomadland." >> reporter: so it was a very different oscars this year. one example, there are no official post oscar parties.
the governor's ball canceled this year, of course, due to the pandemic. reporting live from hollywood, zohreen shah, abc7 news. >> that's so true. there usually would be so many people streaming behind you walking down that red carpet. much appreciation to you, zohreen shah live for us in hollywood. in this history making pandemic year, the oscars made history for being the most diverse year ever. from the voting academy itself to the inclusive list of nominees and winners. the 93rd academy awards didn't waste time making a social statement. >> i have to be honest. if things had gone differently this past week in minneapolis, i might have traded in my heels for marching boots. >> historical films like "the trial of the chicago 7" and "judas and the black messiah" parallelled the social justice message by many winners and presenters. >> i refuse to hate someone because they are a police officer. i refuse to hate someone because they are asian.
i would hope for me we refuse hate. >> those to me are the most powerful moments to talk about their own identity and how this impacts them and to learn more about the people making these stories. >> after years of calling for more representation the academy's members are more diverse than ever. according to the center for asian-american media, the pandemic is partially responsible. >> these movies were on netflix and on amazon prime and when they don't go through the theatrical system, you see more diversity and stories being kind of connecting and resonating with audiences. >> asians also won big. yuh-jung youn, the first korean nominated and to win best supporting actor, her heartfelt acceptance speech -- >> i cannot believe i'm here. >> -- highlighted how far the oscars has come. >> basically her speech was i watched this as a show and i never thought i'd have the ability to be on the main stage, let alone win one of the
biggest awards of the night. >> chloe zhao's win for best director also made history. >> she is the first woman of color, a woman filmmaker to win the award. that's a big deal and only the second woman director to actually ever win in 90 years. >> this oscars was just the beginning of more progress, not just for asians, but for all people of all backgrounds in hollywood. >> i see their future brighter now. they see more opportunities. they now have more people that they can look up to as mentors. so it's a good day. >> really nice to see. now the internet is upset tonight over one perceived snub. anthony hopkins won best actor over presumed frontrunner chadwick bozeman. many predicted bowsman bozeman would win for his role in "ma
rainey's black bottom." bozeman would have been only the third actor to win posthumously. emery-based pixar won two oscars tonight for "soul" best animated film and best original score. for the trio behind the music it was the first academy award for jazz artist jon batiste and the second for musicians trent reznor and atticus ross. while vallejo singer/songwriter h.e.r. took home an oscar for original song with "fight for you" from the film "judas and the black messiah." still ahead on abc7 news at 11:00 if you're feeling inspired by the fashion from the oscars, one bay area woman can help, the business she founded to give you access to celebrity stylists right from your computer. we're entering a drier pattern starting tomorrow and much warmer temperatures midweek. good news, american tourists may be able to return to europe this supper, but it's

release the extra astrazeneca vaccine. it means we need military support to assist in getting the oxygen and ppe to the hospitals in india that need them. it means that we need to talk to pfizer and moderna about at least a one-year waiver on ip. >> reporter: when will india begin to receive that aid from the u.s.? >> our hope that is it will be in the next few days. >> reporter: the u.s. government also promising to deploy a team of public health officers from the cdc to collaborate with india. in san francisco, luz pena, abc7 news. google is stepping up to th pa naon will toward unicef to get badly needed medical supplies like oxygen. google is also giving ad grants to health authorities in india to connect people with covid testing resources and vaccines. you can start booking that trip to europe as long as
you're vaccinated. the head of the european commission told "the new york times" today transatlantic travel will be allowed this summer but didn't set a date. part of the reason for lifting the ban on tourists is the rapid pace of vaccinations. even so, it is still not clear how travelers will provide proof, something the eu and united states have begun discussing. shifting now to the weather, a little bit of rain, but that drying out certainly is happening for the next couple days. >> yeah. we're definitely drying out and we're talking meager amounts of rain, dion. many places got less than a tenth of an inch, although san francisco almost got 02. the system is moving east. it brought some thunderstorms to the area near chico, but we are drying out seeing less cloud cover and clearing. as we look out from sutro towards san francisco, you can
see clear across the bay, oakland 51, san jose 41, half moon bay 39 degrees and from the east bay look at this wide view of the bay bridge and san francisco, all across the bay. so temperatures are in the 40s and low 50s for many areas, santa rosa 45, napa 51 degrees, concord 50, livermore 47 degrees. this time we're looking in the south bay. so this is what you can expect. we'll see partly cloudy conditions develop overnight with some possible patchy fog, more likely in the north bay and then we enter a much drier and very sunny pattern this week. in fact, temperatures will be climbing up well above average tuesday, wednesday, thursda and possibly even into friday. however, this system that has been moving east, there's still a winter storm warning in effect until 11 a.m. tomorrow. avoid driving until then. expect travel delays up to 16 inches at the highest peaks and it will be windy. overnight lows will be a little cooler, mostly 40s with a few 30s out there.
so santa rosa, napa 39, could see fog develop, mid-40s around the bay and highs tomorrow, although we'll be getting more sunshine we'll still see a sea breeze and this will keep temperatures on the cooler side, a little bit warmer compared to today, but the real warm-up starts on tuesday. so 57 in san francisco, 59 in oakland, 61 in san jose. here's the accuweather seven- day forecast. so our drying trend starts tomorrow and then we warm up much brighter sunshine tuesday, wednesday, thursday and friday. check out inland temperatures in the mid-80s through the middle part of the week. around the bay low to mid-70s and at the beaches low 60s and then a little bit of some slight cooling but not too much change for next weekend. so you can put the umbrellas away, not that we needed it much today, dion, but we need the sunscreen and sunglasses. >> what a roller coaster. thanks. well, it is not just film's biggest night, but also
fashions. taking a look at some of oscars best dressed, oakland native zendaya's valentino look was trending on twitter for a while. i love that. angela bassitt made in alberto ferretti and carey mulligan also in valentino. look at that color. lakeith stanfield wore st. laurent and one of the youngest stars of the night, 9-year-old alan kim. look at that pose. he's got so much swagger, those socks, wore tom brown. if you are feeling inspired by the fashion from the oscars, a menlo park woman created a way to give you access to celebrity stylists and makeup artists from your phone or computer. here's style life. >> i enjoy style, but i'm not very good at it. >> reporter: heather hopkins was set to make a speech at an
upcoming work event and was more concerned about what she would wear than what she would say. >> i was feeling quite nervous about being up on stage and having everyone looking at me. >> reporter: from the comfort of her south bay home heather booked a one-on-one session with a stylist from styled life, a fashion and beauty platform connecting everyday people to celebrity and industry leading stylists and makeup artists virtually. >> i kind of showed her what i had in my closet and then she said okay, yes, use that. now when you go to the store, look for some shoes that have a certain, you know, bling to them at the end or pick out a white shirt that has something dramatic about it. >> reporter: the result? heather looked good and felt good. >> it was great. really i'd never done anything like that before and i just felt much more confident being me up on the stage. >> i honestly feel if you have a passion for something and you love it, then you can learn it.
>> reporter: julie floyd founded styled life after her own struggles to find personalized styling services. >> i was growing out my natural hair and i couldn't find anyone locally who could help me with that process and i wanted someone, you know, who could look at me, my skin tone, my face shape, my hair type, my body shape and really help me with who i am. >> reporter: this former bond trader turned stay-at-home mom and now entrepreneur says styled life can give clients that personalized experience because of its wide range of diverse stylists and artists, many of whom spend their time crafting red carpet looks. >> they are very busy during awards season, but like most people they work throughout the year and if it's not awards season, they're looking for jobs like anyone else might be looking for jobs. >> reporter: it's perfect timing as we emerge from this pandemic and the fashion choices that came along with it. >> the recommendations are stylists have is do start at
home. do dress up with what you already have and if it's something you haven't worn for a year, you haven't been out, you're not excited to wear it, then maybe it's time to put that aside. >> reporter: creating your celebrity style with celebrity artists all from the comfort of home. >> styled life has been kind enough to share a discount code for abc7 viewers. you can see it on your screen. that is abc15. it will get you 15% off and if you search, it is

will be the pick. >> alabama's mac jones hopes to visit california. he'd like to be bay area bound. >> he's one of the smartest quarterbacks i've ever sat down with and met and he has a great understanding and a determination that very few quarterbacks that i've been around have. >> justin fields is a california hopeful. the ohio state quarterback is also in the mix to be selected by san francisco. >> i think he could be the most physically gifted of all these quarterbacks. i mean you look at him from his height to his weight to the 4:44 he ran at the pro day. he is smart and tough and everything you look for. >> north dakota's trey lance could be the selection at number three with a chance to star in the california spotlight. >> trey lance would be a great pick at number 3 because you do have jimmy garoppolo and you can develop him and kyle shanahan would be great at developing him. if it's mac jones from alabama, you can probably insert him and play with him this year, but if it's trey lance or justin
fields, i think you want to buy a year. i think it's very smart from this entire staff, john lynch and kyle shanahan, to keep jimmy there in order to basically have >> california hopefuls is sponsored by visit california. dion? >> thanks, chris. don't forget abc7 news continues tomorrow morning at 5 a.m. and stay tuned at 7:00 for "good morning america." they'll have team coverage live from los angeles with reaction to the oscars and then at 9:00 live with kelly and ryan. now usually they are the first ones to have the interviews with all of the big winners as soon as they get off the stage. this will be pretty interesting to see how they handle all of this when they are doing the show live from new york instead of los angeles. okay. with that that's all we have for tonight. i'm dion lim. for all of us here at abc7 news, thank you so much for
