out of work could not do it because the online button was broken. tonight, there is some good news. new jobless claims have fallen to their lowest level since the start of the pandemic and have been cut in half this week compared to last week. the pandemic is coming home to roost in our backyards, literally. if right now there is a backyard chicken craze going on. breeders with the american poultry association say demand for checks have exploded since the start of the pandemic. the manager of one sacramental feed store says he's never seen more chickens fly off the shelves literally and figuratively, at one point the store had to limit 3 to 6 checks per person. >> i think it was fair man. i think the easiest way, when survival mode kicks in,

give the governor the power to more drastically restrict water supply. the state has already started warming farmers that conditions could be very bad this year. we look at those pictures and video of those fires, it seems like it was so long ago but it's right in front of us again. >> it's right in front of us, to the point where we don't talk about fire season, it's possible anytime of the year. i will show you which categories we are in, extreme drought continues for much of napa county, solano county and it little corner of sonoma county as well. moderate drought for the santa clara valley and up and down the coast. these conditions have changed very little within the last week or so. but obviously, this is not good as we head into the driest six months of the year. it's also important to put this in perspective, how bad is this really. we don't have to look that far
back in the past, just a few years was the last severe drought. this is the latest update from the u.s. drought monitor. we can compare this to the drought conditions back in 2014. these are very different maps and i don't need to tell you which specific categories we are looking at, you know the map on the right is much worse. it was exceptional drought for most of the state, so we are not there yet, but careening towards that if we have another rainy season that under achieves. in the short-term, no rain in the seven-day forecast, just a little bit of fog trying to creep in, temperatures currently right around 50 degrees, down to the mid-40s in santa rosa. the fog will spread pretty far into the inland valleys tomorrow morning. and when it is that widespread it takes its time backing up.
still some fog by late morning and that starts to retreat as we head toward midday. temperature start off mostly in the 40s, except some upper 30s in the valleys of the north bay. these dogs live in martinez where temperatures will warm up to around the upper 60s by noon and mid-70s by highs, and it will be warm inland tomorrow, temperatures on the coast reach mid to upper 50s, a little warmer around the bay, close to 60 for san francisco. low to mid 70s for most inland parts of the bay area, even part of the diablo range close to 80 degrees. and well into the 70s around the bay and 60s along the coast. you don't want to miss this, coming up the a's looking

a career-high 20 and the warriors went 119-101. their first four-game win streak of the season. not all good news, james wiseman rookie season is over, being out until at least september with a torn meniscus. kiana williams is going from one championship team to another. the storm drafted williams with the 18th overall pick, she laid stanford is the all-time leader in three pointers. like the warriors, the a's are stricken, looking for five straight wins after beginning the season 0-6. the a's and takers all wearing number 42 on jackie robinson day. fifth inning, matt olson, holy toledo, 428 feet, second of the
year. rough night on the mound for detroit pictures. next batter, matt chapman to the left, and they get their fifth win in the room. >> he's been labeled the brave one strain, considered the most vile, so he will join the starting rotation this weekend. tough break for the pitching staff because they have the second lowest e.r.a. of all of baseball. two runs later, this season, than last season. it looks like a scene from an action movie. we will show you the
we all see those crazy action movies with cars flying in the air and landing in one piece. >> officers are trying to the guy who pulled off his own crazy stunt. monday, this drawbridge was pulling up when an suv came flying by. the car crashed through the traffic arms, and launched over the drawbridge, into the air. made a hard landing on the other side, all four wheels down. >> the impact of the traffic arms actually shattered the windshield. and just last month a motorcyclist was also caught
