6:15 pm
here in the valley where it is really nice and i was kind of surprised. >> i thought it would be sunny appear for sure. >> you are not watching darren yesterday. that is all we talk about. a few members share this video of flakes falling and the jingle bell sound effects. why not. you didn't have us amply prepared for the snow up in the mountains. the warming trend ahead as well. thank you. greg and the nice woman in the car for following the script and we started seeing this on wednesday but this will catch people off guard up there driving over donner pass understandably to get that much snow out there and look out over the tri-valley and here is a time-lapse that s ras is is one of the more impressive views of the rain. it was on again and off again and steady at times and missed
6:16 pm
and a little more rain in the parking lot is what there in the foreground and that moved out from these hills and moved off to the north and dropped about 1507 inch of rain in san ramon and a little more than that around dublin proper but not much and those are some of the biggest holes and other than the rain gauge at brian's place, the southern edge of marin were a at 4/10 of an inch of rain and you can check that with mill valley with 3/10 of an inch of rain and everybody else you have five seven evidence -- inch of rain. you can see the showers that still exist and mainly focused in or around the tri-valley and that time-lapse we are looking at and the closer view shows us it is mainly up in the hills and the yellow and orange is good in the radar telling you it is down a little bit better of a clip but only doing it over the mountains. this tells us the system is
6:17 pm
losing some energy and needs the mountains to give it a padded boost and that will go away and if we put it back into future cast we can watch those showers come to an end as they fizzle out and drift away and it is pretty much done and it will be colder tonight and low 40s and mid 30s in the valleys. it looks pretty out there right now. left over clouds and take this in because the skies may not look like this again and you get onto the back end of a clearing storm and you get the prettiest looking sky. if you look at us in the big picture you can't miss it. the water vapor off the coast gives you the exaggerated view and this is why it is still snowing in the sierra right now. watch the direction coming up into the state and just kind of had on hitting the mountains forcing the air up and it will snow up there for the next few hours and not necessarily heavy at this point but we will continue to get another few inches here and there is still a winter storm warning up there

you are watching kpix 5 news. year after year and decade after decade we were told it was not the right time. what i would say it is never the right time to do the wrong thing . >> president biden entered new territory this weekend with a single word. that word was genocide. he is now the first president to use it to describe the 1915 massacre of armenians by the turks. >> today armenians today celebrated what they see as the end of the nile. we were there.
6:29 pm
>> reporter: for 106 years the turkish government has denied that it committed genocide. it is a word they don't use and they don't like it when others use it as well. in a statement yesterday president biden said the american people honor all of those armenians who perished in the genocide that began 106 years ago today. it was the first time the term genocide has been used. the santa clara supervisor, who is of armenian descent feels it is about time. >> year after year and decade after decade, we were told it was not the right time. what i would say it is never the right time to do the wrong thing. denial is the wrong thing. >> reporter: in 1915 with world war i underway, the ottoman turks began in ethnic purging of the armenian homeland. >> hundreds of thousands of armenians died, and by the end of the war, more than half of histic homelands were n living
6:30 pm
destroyed. >> reporter: it is estimated that 1.5 million people were killed. but ever since, turkey, and important nato ally, has pressured the u.s. from refrain from calling it a genocide. today at a remembrance ceremony at saint andrews armenian church in cupertino the normally somber attitude was tinged with gratitude to president biden and local congresswoman anna eshoo has campaigned for years to call the atrocity a genocide. >> i thanked him for his consistent support and said he had the opportunity to make history. he did. >> reporter: she is also armenian and work to get a genocide recognition letter of resolution to the house in 2019 were passed overwhelmingly. some say it was that backing by the congress that made it possible for president biden to choose the words he did. >> the word is important because each one of them mattered. each life, a loved one.
6:31 pm
in silence, it is buried with denial. >> reporter: the turkish government announced president biden statement calling the word genocide a vulgar distortion of history. the armenians say words coming from the white house matter and even though they can't change what happened, at least they are no longer pretending it did not. >> bay area armenians are worried now about a rise in hate crimes directed at them. last year and armenian school was defaced by vandals and two months later the cultural center was attacked by arsonists. president biden will mark his 100th day in office this thursday. while his administration remains focused on the pandemic and economy, john lawrence reports president is also trying to build support for his sweeping infrastructure plan. >> reporter: this week president biden will unveil the latest of his economic agenda during his first joint address
6:32 pm
to congress since laying out his proposal last month in pittsburgh. >> even as he makes the final decisions that the american families plan and a speech on wednesday will represent the totality of every priority item for him and every item on his agenda that he wants to move forward as president. >> reporter: sources say the proposal includes reducing childcare costs and boosting paid family leave the white house plan would double the capital gains tax for those who earn more than $1 million annually. lawmakers countered with their own proposal and would not raise taxes and would be paid for with offsets like user fees. >> there are very few folks will argue that they don't want to see government funds invested in this one the reasons why president biden can call just about anything infrastructure and hope to throw that cloak over it. >> reporter: despite the differences it appears the lines of can location are open between the two parties. >> i talked to our ranking members and talk to our committee chairman and democrats and this is an active
6:33 pm
conversation. i think it is a good beginning. as far as the president's approval rating goes, an average of the six most recent polls shows 55% of americans are content with the job he is doing and 41% feel the opposite. we heard from vice president harris today and an extended interview with cnn. she covered a number of topics including gun-control. >> we should have background checks and that is reasonable gun safety laws and we should have an assault weapons ban. assault weapons have been designed to kill a lot of people quickly. they are weapons of war. congress has to act. >> she spent a lot of time talking about the death of george floyd. she called on congress to pass the justice in policing act that is named for him. >> we have to put an end to these moments where the public questions whether there will be accountability.
6:34 pm
questions whether there is going to be the kind of fairness that we should all expect and deserve in all of our lives and in particular as it relates to opcolo with a particular emphasis on black and brown men in the criminal justice system. >> she also talked about the president's recent decision to withdraw troops from afghanistan as the last person in the room when the call was made. she said she has her full support. a news poll shows americans are slightly less hesitant about vaccines this month and they were in march and as we report there is still a significant number of people who may opt not to get the shot. >> reporter: the push to vaccinate america against covid- 19 is moving faster than many expected but there are concerns that vaccine hesitancy can slow progress. >> we had about 141 million people who have received at least one dose and the more people you get vaccinated the more people you protect.
6:35 pm
six in 10 americans plan to get vaccinated and they have already had at least one shot but at least 20% of people say either maybe or no. >> some portion of those people we can reach with better education and getting the vaccines in the hands of people they trust like their local doctors to try to encourage them to get vaccinated. >> reporter: those surveyed still hesitant to get vaccinated indicated various reasons and the most common is the vaccines are still too untested and people are waiting to see what happens to others to get the shots. >> the cdc said about a percent of americans who had their first dose have missed their second and the numbers don't account for people who switch to a new clinic for their second shot so the actual figure is lightly less. if you have still not gotten your shot yet, it is a good time and the lines are short and you can go to our website to see what ago and we have a list of activities that

joined church leaders for a united we stand prayer rally that called for unity and blessings for all ethnic groups in our country. >> i think what we do is coming together, we show whether it is different faiths or ethnicities, things that we believe in our hope and care and kindness for our communities. >> the thing we are talking about and the reason we are getting together to pray is not just a token thing of getting people of different nationalities together, to do some sort of event. we actually believe there is a tremendous power when we get on our faces and humble ourselves before god. >> the same message was shared next-door in san jose were a rally was held to stop asian hate at cesar chavez plaza. it is suddenly less appealing in parts of the bay area. why other coastal homeowners may be forced to retreat or abandon their properties altogether. a popular brewing company

6:45 pm
the next two days. >> you could've watched all the climate change coverage we have been doing this last week rather than getting people a sour beer. the place to be for rain for the past few hours has been the tri-valley and i have a beautiful time-lapse to show you what this is look like if you have been missing out on rain for your part of the bay. the starts at 5:15 and look at the drops on the lens and the break of sun and the wet parking lot. this has been fun to watch, but it has not been widespread. it has really been kind of hung up over the tri-valley for about the last 2 1/2 hours really and this is been the place if you wanted to find rain. even with that the rainfall totals are not really all that here and we are still only looking at 1507 inch of rain. i will use san ramon as an example and that is the biggest total and up-to-date right now and 1607 inch of rain so it says a lot about the nature of the rain we have been getting end fairly light. it comes in pockets and mill
6:46 pm
valley got 3/10 of an inch of rain and sausalito for tents. it was localized there. but everybody else is right around 1/10 of an inch of rain in san francisco so far 1307 inch of rain. that is where the rainfall totals it now. let's show you what is coming up next. we can say goodbye to the majority of the rain here and let's get the high definition doppler on the screen. the focus was down on the tri- valley and we can see the sweeps going around there and watch what happens as we come in for a close-up look where the rain is now going across 580 right at the intersection of 580 and 84 to the heart of livermore. and that is because we have a stationary band of rain sitting right there over you guys and if that is where it is right now, let's go back to the
6:47 pm
future cast and play this forward and we will show you what happens. it does pick up beautifully where the showers are and then as we go through the remainder of this evening and we say goodbye to the rain that we have been getting and we have to move on to the next side of the story which is the warm-up. we still have a beautiful afternoon and evening for cloud watching but really it is the warm-up that will start taking precedence and before i get to that we are not done in the sierra. there will be snow that falls in the mountains still from now to the remainder of tomorrow morning and it is not much with a few inches. it is enough that there is a winter storm warning stilunins. that will be a headline for anybody still traveling through the sierra from now until 11:00 tomorrow morning. let's look at the temperatures. tomorrow is not a big rebound for us. we don't really see the big jump into temperatures so much. we will go to the mid-60s for inland spots and we were pretty
6:48 pm
much low 60s today for a daytime high so it is a subtle increase. watch what happens as we color- coded the map. you see the big blue spot over california? the key on top shows us we are above average temperature wise for this time of year, about 10 degrees. and as we advance through the week we will shift and it fills up with yellow and orange by the time we get to thursday and friday. the scale shows you much of the west indeed and not just us but much of the west including california will be in the order of about 10 degrees above average and maybe even 15 degrees above average because when you start seeing a daytime high for inland parts of the bay area in the mid 80s the low to mid 70s would be average. so maybe about 10 or 11 degrees above average so another words we are going right back into sunny and warm and well above average which is a theme. we had a brief had turned from a storm that came through and give us nice rain and not nearly enough and now that it is gone, we go right back to

what we have been doing for much of spring. we will be
