post malone will be taking his place. the tourist and airline industry looking forward to a flood of international visitors. but what does the new policy mean for you and your holiday travel plans? here's what experts say. >> just show your proof of vaccination and get the test. the testing requirements for the u.s. are quite lenient. you need a pcr test or rapid test. i've flown in from countries overseas and i don't need to get a pcr test because rapid tests are cheaper than pcr tests. and more assessly accessible and you don't have to worry about having a lab get you the results in time. the rapid test is the way to go. >> watch a few interview on nbclx that's 11-5, xfinity cable 185 or lx.com. this midday, we'll take a live look. let's go on a trip. this is where snow has already been falling for you. this is when that storm passed through the bay area. that's the storm that created
that beautiful snow there. the camera there that you're seeing is from palisades ski resort. and that is real snow. the resort also says those temperatures have been low enough for them to actually fire up the snow-making machine for the first time this year. the resort right now hopes to reopen november 24th, perhaps sooner than if that snow keeps coming down. >> guess the puffy ski jacket. >> ready to go. >> we can see it was snowing earlier. now it's turned to raindrops. the temperatures are warming up even at that elevation. for the bay area, especially for the north bay, look at mt. tam, still going up. now over 4 inches of rain and in the santa cruz mountains, over 2 inches of rain there. santa rosa, over an inch and three quarters. san francisco approaching an inch. and about a half inch in antioch. and so as we look at san rafael, an inch and a half there. fairfield over an inch of rain.
oakland, livermore, san martin, a half inch of rain. that looks good. and then we still have some light rain falling in some spots, especially as you go down the peninsula. parts of the east bay around milpitas and fremont. some light rain at this point. so you may still have to deal with the umbrella, but for the most part, the rain is going to be tapering off. we can see drier air starting to intrude on the back edge of this atmospheric river. take a look at the connection that goes all the way across the atlantic and so this is going to be really what enhances the rain and at some time we'll see these atmospheric rivers it depends on the intensity and the rain they bring and they wave back and forth. can be as long as 2,000 miles. that's that subtropical connection. and it's going to stay active here going into at least early next week. but a lot of the rain targets the pacific northwest. by the time it gets here, models show it falling apart next tuesday. that will be our next chance of rain.
we'll see if this can hold together, but if not, we're looking at still some very dry conditions. and our reservoirs do need more rain. take a look at our north bay reservoirs. right now only about half of the capacity. a little better with east bay mud but doing very poor for a lot of our south bay reservoirs. and we compare that to the statewide average, the historical capacity. and we're right at about half of what we take an average of all of these across the state. so only halfway there but we are still early in our water year. looking at all of the rain that's going to be moving out, we take a look at the seven-day forecast. we are seeing this rain taper off. partly, mostly cloudy skies today and not a whole lot happening over the next few days with our temperatures in the low 70s. veterans day looking really nice. the weekend, highs in the low 70s. next week we'll start to see more clouds moving in. for san francisco, mid-60s. and we'll stay there. upper 60s into the next several days. and a mix of sun and clouds. but things are starting to quiet
down, marcus and laura. and so that's what we're expecting going into hopefully a very nice weekend. we can make some plans and get outside. >> sounds great. thanks. amazon will reportedly submit plans next week for a new warehouse and shipping center in san francisco. the company purchased the property about a year ago. located on seventh street at the edge of mission bay. executives presented the plan last night during a community meeting. if the plan is approved, the facility will provide about 500 new jobs and may be up and running within two years. it comes as amazon is looking to expand its facilities here in the bay area. the sacramento district attorney who prosecuted the golden state killer is launching a "true crime" podcast. the da wants to give people a behind the scenes look at the police work that led to the arrest of joseph deangelo. that podcast is called "inside the crime files" and three episodes have been released. they prosecuted deangelo for
