set up a plume of black smoke that could be seen for miles and invest to get a say it started in a homeless encampment under 880 after 9:00 this morning near 20th and wood street and since there were no hydrants nearby crews had a shuttle water to the site but nobody was hurt. one thing that suffered was air- quality with more smoke in the air making if he air-quality worse as we look at the time lapse of today's traffic along the bridge. we are tracking at the week ahead. that is not necessarily wildfire smoke. this is just classic winter conversion and it looks a lot worse than it is, but it has brought us to moderate on the air-quality and you can see it today from our camera on top of the sales force tower and you can see the well-defined line which is the winter inversion and we get into a set up like this where it is sunny and 70 for days on end with high
6:07 pm
pressure holding all of the air in place in order to create weather like that and you can see the cap it creates an anything you put in the air just sits here and recycle so as we switch over to the weather computer, here are the readings with yellow, moderate bay area wide so that is not bad in terms of air-quality advisories but it is something you will continue to see over the next few days and maybe go easy on yourself and while this is not wildfire smoke it is probably a good idea not to add anything more to it and we probably won't feel too compelled right now to have a fireplace going but this wouldn't be a good time anyway. i will be back with the rest of the forecast coming up in terms of how long we state sunny and 70. don't be surprised if your mail arrives before the sun and carriers across the bay area will be starting their rounds extra early through the holidays to keep up with a heavy volume of packages and other mail and will start as early as six clock a.m. in some neighborhoods. a live look at city hall lit up this evening to celebrate the first night of hanukkah and this colorful creation will be on display in alameda this week and the

jitsu into their training, people immediately equate that with violence. and what her officers learning here. >> the natural presumption here is it's going to be a violent encounter for officers are trained in brazilian jui jitsu but that is the least thing that would happen with the. truck one of the loudest proponents of this type of training for law enforcement is henner gracie third generation teacher of jui jitsu. >> that is where the collaboration begins. truck he helped launch grace university and the cocreator of gracie survival tactics and the only curriculum in california to be certified by the commission on peace officer standards and training. >> all the techniques have been adapted specifically for the law enforcement considerations that need to be brought into the equation. retention, handcuffing, multiple attackers potentially, confined spaces. >> at your hands up.

>> with the officers with the training we have seen incidents where they had he is forced to be able to get control in a relatively short timeframe as opposed to resorting to other tactics like strikes to get compliance. >> reporter: in california police are only required to take four hours of hands-on defensive tackle training every two years and it is a standard that he argues highlights the need for change. >> naturally, officers will revert to the tools better on their toolbelt and the physical tools whether it be pepper spray or a taser, baton, firearm and they will resort to those quickly because there are no empty handed skills being taught. >> reporter: a shift in methods and mindset joining law enforcement's newest weapon and showing it doesn't have to be any weapon at all. >> the sheriff's department is also looking into this type of training and dozens of its
6:15 pm
deputies will take a week long course in march. an update and not so wiley coyote that had to be rescued after he apparently jumped into the bay area waters last week. they used to jet skis and a lasso to pull him from the water off the marina green on friday and how do they know he was named phoenix? they named him that and he was ushered to a deluxe suite at animal care and control workers bundled him and blankets and warm them up the heater and all of those nonnatural things and the officer gave him a ride back to his homeland for release. he said thanks. some new video just into the newsroom from marin county where this stream is still flowing tonight despite the fact we have not seen any rain in a while so darren is here to tell us if we have any on horizon. >> not for the next week and a half and looking at the long- range forecast we are starting to get to the point where it is now, it's time for the storms to come back and we had a good
6:16 pm
october and it has been dry for too long and now the long-range forecast is starting to look concerning in terms of the lack of rainfall and a live look outside right now and here it is beautifully lit up reflecting off the bay and the current temperatures out there are actually nice and a lot of mid 60s out there still 63 and heyward in san francisco and 61 in santa rosa and livermore 54 in here the morning lows which aren't too bad and we will go back into the mid-40s for most places so not terribly cold and we should not have an issue with widespread fog tomorrow, although there could be some patchy areas in the north bay and be aware of that if you will be out driving around anywhere off of 101 where the side road is important throughout there and we watch the future cast for tomorrow and maybe a few high clouds. we are playing through the whole day here and you see anything happening? not really. maybe some high clouds and that is it. so under blue skies the daytime highs go back into the 70s again and for many south bay locations we will be back in the low to mid 70s for some of the spots and we will have to
6:17 pm
settle for low 70s for the inland valleys of the east valley and tri-valley doing 70 or 71 pretty much all across the board and back into the bay proper we have some 70s over here and san leandro to 71 as we get up to berkeley mid-60s into the heart of the bay and low 70s which get back up north and wine country and low 70s as well so where is the rain? we do know it is not here and there is a lot in the pacific and we can see the next storm out there it is a really good storm developing and that one will go to the same exact spot the last four storms have gone and all of the rain in the pacific is apparently just going to one spot and it has been doing that for the last month and a half and it will do it again tomorrow and monday and if you have not heard or seen and why would you have but british columbia has been getting atmospheric river after atmospheric river and it's been huge the amounts of rainfall in seattle also getting in that act but here at home as long as
6:18 pm
the storms keep going up there we don't get a thing and as we let this play through the accumulated rainfall and take it all the way ahead to tomorrow but also next monday, december 6, you can see that we are still not in the act there and there have been another 2 inches of rain falling in portland, and that map looks a lot like a la niña and we are in a la niña winter so this tells us see surface temperatures along the equator are cooler than average and it redirects the storm track in such a way that california typically comes away with a little bit less rainfall than average and then where the rain falls heavily it is depicted by what we just saw so the next seven days will look like that. the daytime highs will stay in the low to mid 70s and really right around 70 for oakland and the microclimates tell us the same story and it will be mid- 70s as well going through the north bay valleys for the next
6:19 pm
few days inland and east bay valleys warm up to right around 70 and we will keep that hazy look to the sky as long as we have high pressure dominating like this keeping us sunny and warm in traps the air here and anything and everything you put into the air sits here and gets recycled and it is a mix of dust and there is some smoke and there from wildfires and all the rest of the exhaust coming out of our cars and that is what we have for the next several days. more on this coming up in the next half hour. back to you. baseball news just hit the wire and the giants fans, you are going to want to hear this. it is been a while but the 49ers have a winning record and something has occurred in levi stadium we have only seen once

months. a 7.5 earthquake in northern peru damage some buildings and block a few roads with rubble and stuck about 100 miles from the border with ecuador and while it was strong, it was also quite deep, which limited the damage and so far no word of any injuries. and a hidden ecological disaster is unfolding off the california coast tonight. >> the undersea kelp forest that so many species depend on our disappearing and we are back to explain why. >> reporter: like so many of the environment that we might otherwise take for granted, climate change is now also robbing our coastlines of one of its most important habitats. >> reporter: it is no wonder the kelp forest exhibit at the monterey bay aquarium is so popular but in addition to getting mesmerized here, we also get schooled on how vital these forests are to almost everything that lives along our coast.

6:36 pm
start in 2008 a particularly good year for kelp and everything here in teal is canopy and the forest naturally grows larger or smaller from year to year, but in 2015, most of it vanishes. and then it never recovered. but the kelp didn't just disappear. it is been devoured by purple urchin who have recently been given two big advantages. their natural predator the sunflower see star was wiped out in 2013 by a pathogen in right after that the kelp's defenses began weakening due to a warming ocean. it's hardly the way that anybody would describe our coast but it is used to chilly 55 degrees and lately the water has been reaching the mid-60s and for this ecosystem, that is a heat wave. that brings us to the root of this problem. the pacific is getting warmer. we time-lapse the last 10 years and we see an obvious trend and
6:37 pm
the areas in red show temperatures above average. by the time we get to 2015 the kelp forest collapsed and we see a blob of water so large that it is technically classified as a marine heat wave but the blob, as it has been called, was quickly followed by other marine heat wave and here is one in 2017 and here is another one in 2019. and here is another in 2020. some of that water along the coast was near 70 degrees. >> there are certain locations like this spot here where the kelp is hanging on. truck this assistant professor at sonoma state university took me to a small beach where he has found a glimmer of hope. >> if you're going to restore by receding then maybe you should select from the best populations and you will have the best chance of surviving if there is another warming event. >> reporter: once you find a strain that can tolerate the heat better, you get into the blades like that and you will find perhaps millions of tiny
6:38 pm
spores. >> if you can collect those and transplant them appear maybe that will work. >> eventually we will figure things out and right now we don't have the answers but we are working toward. >> reporter: you are racing against the clock. yes. against the climate clock, yes. >> reporter: it was another glimmer of good news in the story and it happened this year. and to see how here is an example from 2019, stretch of coastline in mendocino and you should see a kelp forest flourishing out here but number 2019, most of it vanished and we will go to 2021 which was the summer and you see a lot more now and a very good sign. a reason for that. the map shows you what the ocean temperatures are like off the coast and you will see a strong area of blue off the coastline right there and remember here is the marine heat wave and we had another one this summer but just along the coast the california current which is responsible for delivering that cold water the kelp and so much of the rest of the ecosystem here has evolved with and thrives on
6:39 pm
really went into overdrive and that is as strong as you see it in any summer like this we should've seen it arriving big time and instead we only got about 10% of what we should've had and that is the important part of this and the conditions this summer couldn't have been any better and even with that they still only came back to 10% and a lot of people got their hopes up but if you only get 10% on a year that is good is you ever will get and we know we will see more marine heat waves there are big concerns going forward. >> are you saying there is only 10% off the entire coastline are just that stretch? >> it is basically from san francisco north where they are and from san francisco south like monterey that is giant kelp and doing fine but his hours here that have utterly collapsed in the first think everybody agrees need to be done is we need to clear out the purple urchin which have completely taken over the environment and their are private organizations and nonprofits working to do just that, but there is a lot that
6:40 pm
has to come together to help reverse this. >> i know there is so much more to this as well as we will actually have a longer version in more interviews. >> a good point so the weather extra we do i have a seven minute explainer and everything i could not fit into the story. and there are a lot of other experts going into details and you can find it on the website. the most important thing to know heading into cyber monday. >> if it is too good to be true, it probably is.
