didn't really talk much about this today, but did release a statement. they said the health and safety of their patients is their top concern. they are looking into how this mixup occurred. as you heard, it was a mixup and how much saline went into one of those batches of vaccine, but you know, the effort to, you know, get people vaccinated underway, they want people to know it was an isolated incident, and not an issue of safety concern. they want more people to show up at the clinics. i was hanging at the county clinic today. it was pretty quiet, and they are starting to see a lot more folks getting vaccinated on school campuses, starting to take up maybe the bulk of the childhood vaccination efforts. that is it from antioch. wilson walker, kpix 5. when it comes to booster shots, governor newsom stressed the importance of getting one . >> we want to keep people safely and schools point we do want to close schools down. we want to keep businesses open. we want the economy to fully recover and thrive. the closest and fastest way of doing that and ending this

a very lucky puppy is back with its owner this evening after falling off a cliff at moss beese, just north of half moon bay. they were able to rappel down the cliff and carry the 9-month- old border collie backup. the dog was not injured. taking you to the sierra now where two ski resorts are pushing back their opening dates. heavenly and north star, they will not open this friday as planned. posts on their social media accounts say warmer temperatures are forcing the delays. they will have an update on the season next week. we are hoping that even though we are only going to get a little bit of rain, it might help a little bit? >> it might help a little bit, but then longer-range beyond that, it looks like all of northern california goes back to sunny and warm for a while, into thanksgiving and maybe beyond. fog has been the main issue
over the last few mornings. we had another dense fog advisory again today for all of the inlet and east bay valleys. good news for tomorrow. it is likely not going to be that bad. we probably won't have a dense fog advisory. if we look at the current visibility readings, they are all 10 miles, 10.0, tell you that is how many miles you can see down the road. the last four nights, we had already seen these numbers going downhill. and the fog, that has been responsible for this, that forms out in the central valley and squeezes through the delta, the opposite of what we can get in the summer, that is what we have been having, that is melting off fast in the central valley tonight. a good sign for tomorrow morning. you still might have patchy fog, but not the widespread issue we've been dealing with. current temperatures, mid to upper 50s. we go back down to the mid to upper 40s for morning lows. we will develop our own fog without pulling it in from the central valley. the daytime highs tomorrow,
with a few high clouds, will come right back up to where they were today, mid 60s. that covers wednesday. let's look ahead to thursday night and friday, because that is the next chance of rain. easy the leading edge of the clouds, but if you go out for a slightly wider look, that system that you can see develop, futurecast sees it and puts the rain on it, most of that goes to the north. the southern edge goes right through the bay area late thursday night and into friday. if we come in for a closer look at that, we haven't gotten any rain at that point. it is cloudy. the showers get here once we get into friday, technically, midnight friday, and this will be light rain for the friday morning commute. we will play that from midnight, all the way into right now looking at 9:30 in the morning on friday. it is not a big rainmaker, but enough rain.
we might get a few hundredths of an inch of rain at of this. this is the best take away on how significant or insignificant the friday morning rain is going to be. when you see it in the 7 day forecast, friday has rain on it . it is done by early afternoon at the latest. the second half of the day, you don't get rained on. that's it. beyond that, there's not much reason to believe we will be talking about more opportunities for rain here the longer range forecasts going into early december, more than anything else, says sunny and warm, at least warmer than average peer created good in october, and now things will quiet down for a few weeks. back over to you. >> thank you.
