land on these cheap 3-d printed skid questions, skids, and come to a scraping stop. solar panels recharge the batteries, but the secret sauce is in the artificial intelligence. on board sensors span for thermals, rising portion of hot air and shuts off the power tow blades, which folds back to reduce drag. the autopilot rides those thermals to save energy. the ceo said they got their idea from mother nature. >> so we looked at birds. birds that fly long stances. they're not constantly flapping their wings. we are constantly monitoring environmental conditions, feeding that pack into the autopilot. >> reporter: flying autonomously for compares to weeks at a time means they can one day conduct long-term surveillance or search and rescue operations, even conduct climate change research, and perhaps most urgently, monitor wildfires in real-time 24 hours

getting vaccinated or boosted now is still your safest bet. i don't think that we are going to make this virus go away. we need to learn to co-exist with it, and defend it. make it as mild as possible. and if you are looking for a booster shot, links have been posted at the state and county level on kpix.com. and coming up tonight at 11:00, we'll look at how the new variant is prompting people to reconsider their holiday plans. amazon fulfillment centers across the country are running at full speed on this cyber monday, but the deals aren't the only reason to shop now. the items may not last that long either. adobe analytics says out of stock messages this month are up over 100% from pre-pandemic levels. appliances and electronics along with home and garden supplies are the most limited.

a display of ice blue -- cycles tripping down the highway, and a tiny replica of the white house itself. we're on the lookout for bay area bright spots this holiday season. you can send your pictures and videos by tagging kpix bright spots on social media. terrance, those lights should be twinkling brightly these nights. >> yeah, there will be nothing in the way. highlights here from the waldo grade and the golden gate bridge. an old friend back. look at that shot of the marine layer coming in over the marin head lands, and over the south end of the bridge, as well. that is so pretty. especially when you haven't seen it in a while. so we have a little bit of marine layer right off the coast, and some of it is trying to creep in from the golden gate. it actually looks better on the road than you would have thought from that view, so just be advised you might hit some patchy fog out there, if you're on the coast or right over the golden gate bridge, that's about it. a lot of low 70s on here.
this is about 10 degrees above average, and i think that's important to remind you of that, because we've been doing this for so long that it's easy to lose perspective. we are well above average and we've been doing it for a while and most of the seven-day forecast. this isn't changing anytime soon. morning lows tomorrow will go down into the upper 40s for most of us. we likely will have some patchy going out there tomorrow, especially if the north bay valleys and possibly down here in santa clara valley. so keep that in mind as you're making your plans for tomorrow morning's commute into work. it's not like it's going to be a widespread dense fog advisory kind of day, but there will be some patchy fog out there. low 70s for the daytime highs for the inland valleys of the east bay. low 70s for the bay proper and working our way up through marin and sonoma, and we'll see that same story, which turns into the mid-70s as we get up into lake and mendocino county.
it's very nice when you're in it, but knowing the deficit we've got for rainfall, we need to start seeing a change in this pattern, and right now there's no chance of that. this is mulling moisture from the philippines and pointing it at british columbia. historic rain up there. flooding. the pictures are incredible. as long as that continues, we see nothing down here. this is the accumulated rainfall through next friday, december 10th. so taking us all the way out a week, just about a week and a half, into december. there's still not a whole lot of reason to be hopeful we're going to see rain come back here. so we might as well enjoy it, guess. sunny skies and mid-70s. a lot to enjoy about that. it looks good, and from that standpoint, san jose is going to be 57 on wednesday. we'll keep the temperatures around 70 for the bay and oakland. there our my go climate. maybe a cloud next monday, but
