the obstacles that burden has struggling to overcome actually falls within california state law, which essentially says that. >> if you are not properly licensed somebody such as a police officer, a peace officer. you can't stop anybody for a traffic stop. so right now these advocates right now trying to get some state legislators on their side to hopefully or eventually change this law. catherine. >> thank you, dan. dan thorn reporting live for us in berkeley tonight. thanks, dan. >> the shooting death of dante wright hits, especially close to home here in the bay area and for the family of oscar grant in 2000, 9 former bart officer johannes mehserle. he says that he also fought he had grabbed his taser when he shot and killed grant at the fruitvale bart station on new year's day. was charged with murder but a jury convicted him on the lesser charge of involuntary manslaughter and sentenced him to 2 years in prison. but he was released after just 11 months earlier

sunshine out toward the coast tomorrow. but the winds will be picking up. so it's going to feel cool out there already 48 degrees in half moon bay 48 now in pacifica, 53 in san mateo. 51 in oakland then or drop in the mid 40's and the bot on also in the petaluma right now. so little chilly out there. okay. here comes that low that i was talking about. it's going to drop just to the east of us. and as high pressure tries to build in behind. and guess what, we get those winds kicking up around the bay area. again, going to make for some blustery conditions. lot of part of the day. all right. the sierra nevada, they're not going to the nice conditions like us. they're going change in the weather. some much needed snow likely to move in by late tomorrow and then into wednesday got a couple flakes going to fall over the top of mount not going to be much for that low. just kind of spinning down just east of the sierra nevada that will bring some more snowflakes for that. maybe one, maybe 3 inches of snow above 7,000 feet. so you mount passes, they're going to be open. you would have to worry about that. but certainly and it's no that we can get this bonus right now. even a little bit. yeah. welcome you. thank you, well,

fire season. researchers at san jose state say they are studying plants in the santa cruz mountains to learn more about how dangerously dry the conditions are there. the samples taken show that no new growth which could mean more fuel for the wildfires. >> so compared to the last few years. this is the driest coast. that's a surprise. these plants are stressed. they haven't received the right amount of rain that they require. and there not growing the way they should. so we can hope that they'll recover some. >> in possibly may. and then that could help us throughout the season. but right now it's looking pretty dire. >> the cal fire battalion chief says they do rely on data from the university's fire weather lab. he says the information to let them know when to be ready to go. >> and with that, let's take another look at the 4 zone forecast as we look out live over the market share.
>> kron. 4 chief meteorologist lawrence karnow here tonight with a look at how warm things will get for the start of your tuesday. yeah, guys, for the professors, correct. fire season. very dangerous things drying out now, but really over the last 20 years we've been talking about a major drought across the western half the united states not just california but the entire western half the united and certainly we are primed and ready to go for fire season as we get closer. there we go. outside right now. high pressure in control, there's an area of low pressure just these begin to drop down a little bit cloter right now. the temperatures, yes. getting cool spots 50 degrees in san francisco. little breezy to 51 in oakland 57 in san jose 55 in livermore right now 58 in concord and check out santa rosa. you're cool off now in the mid 40's right. more rain forecast, of course, this would help a lot to get some substantial rain that just gets hard at this time of the season to get significant storms to move into the bay area right now doesn't look too promising. we still have that area of low pressure
spinning off the coastline. it looks like it will merge with another low that dropping out of the gulf of alaska. watch. here we go. they put themselves together. only rotating out in the middle of the pacific not doing us any help keeping us dry as we head into the weekend. in fact, this weekend looks much warmer around the bay area. one branch or one little front makes its way off that area of low pressure bringing some rain up in the city northwest and nothing locally here and then behind that. yeah, you got another week system kind of role on the back side will see more winds likely kicking up behind that system as well. so we're keeping it dry for now tomorrow the temperatures going to cool down is going to be breezy 50's and some 60's around the bay and along the coastline. some 70's in the valleys next couple days looking nice. warm things up a little bit on thursday and friday. but look at your weekend. we're back in the 80's. maybe an offshore wind as we get into sunday and monday that could warm those temperatures up even along the coastline. but yeah, we're getting so close to the season. now the fire season certainly looking a little bit dangerous out there right now. but year after year of drought-like conditions and you see all that's the building up in the force and
boy didn't take much to get things burn once again as we know all too well. yeah. thanks. lauren says lawrence. well employees at a souls force were fully vaccinated can soon return to the office. >> san francisco's biggest private employer says it's going to begin repopulating as they put it, san francisco's sales force tower and the palo alto location. and next month there will be safety protocols that will be testing available. but the return is optional infect cells forces also extending the work from home option through the end of the year. still a lot of people are calling this a step in the right direction. >> companies are planning for a future. and when we had talked to companies, even just a few weeks or months ago, they were all pointing to the summertime. some are pointing to the fall. i do think the pace of vaccinations has allowed for companies to accelerate those time lines at least a little bit. >> so far. so will soon allow non vaccinated employees back in the office. not quite yet.
and eventually will return to full capacity. last month. facebook announced that it will begin bringing workers back in june. but for now, only at 10% capacity. san francisco's recreation and parks department says that all of the city's public pools will be back open by june. >> under the orange tier guidelines per the state's reopening plan outdoor pools currently operate at 50% capacity indoors at 25%. so far the mission districts mission community pulled the city's only outdoor public pool has reopened the remaining pools will gradually reopen over the next 2 months. the locker rooms will remain closed. however. >> still ahead as more people are getting vaccinated, just fewer people are getting covid testing. why local health officials say that ir a problem. >> a series we get out i have minutes to like he's guys.
