6:47 pm
of its in addition to all the other notification tools, they have soco alerts. they have other things that they have through their cell phone. the uia alerts whether researchers have all the proof they need to be worried, but we've been sampling this one site for 13 years, and this is the 1st april where we had no new growth. the fuels air starting off so dry in the spring. they're only going to get dryer through the summer millions of california tree our drought, disease and insect infested, making them very weak and highly prone to fires. tom vacar ktvu, fox two news, a group of whale watchers got quite the show in monterey bay, a photographer who went out with the wheel watching group from princess monterey tours captured these photos and video of a pod of killer whales swimming near their boat. the whales swim underneath the boat and appeared to pester a pair of adult gray whales. awhile before swimming off, the
6:48 pm
photographer says will watchers have spotted the killer whale pod several times over. the past few days? yes nice to see killer wells out there. i have a guy i used to know. back in the long time ago, he was a surfer. it's steamers laid in santa cruz. he's just talk about in the fifties. this killer whales would come inside, you know, with lighthouses there at the point or out by the pier that there's the in elaine there, the. killer whales would come inside right offshore. which is amazing, because i've never seen a killer well outside the fair lawns in this area. okay so dry pattern right? it's 20 days since we've seen rain. last time, a rain was march 18th, and it looks like we're not going to see any rain until a couple weeks into april for sure, obviously, right? and then here are the temperatures from today a little cooler in those inland valleys. i picked up some when they went, we had the surface winds, and then i went up to the mountain tops, and you could see diablos blowing 36 months. miles an hour, but it's almost breezier
6:49 pm
down the surface and it is a pie. which is interesting, so we've got some pretty brisk winds, and that's the responsible, uh, factor for the cool down today was those winds coming onshore, just blowing. ah, lot of cool. they're up into the delta up into sacramento up into davis, so they've had significant cooling there as well, as evidenced by all the green showing you just a ton of cool air sliding in fairfield 61 degrees right now. and it's 58 in san jose. so it's only a couple degrees warmer and fairfield, which is kind of unusual for sure. a zoo. look at those salads that loop. you can see a lot of stuff out there, but nothing really defined in terms of potential rain potential storm but have you so we got more of the same. it's a holding pattern if you will, in the holding pattern includes a day tomorrow a lot like the day that we had today, which means temperatures in the sixties will see a little bit warmer. tomorrow because of the lack of winter because of less wind will be plenty of sunshine and it's going to be a very comparable data today, and the
6:50 pm
plan is for this next few days into the weekend will be for temperatures to warm a little bit each day, so it's spring. it feels like spring. it's acting like spring. we'll see more seventies tomorrow, especially in the inland valleys. and when we talk about warm up here, we're not talking about warm up. we're talking about warm up. it's kimmy just a little bit warmer to each day we get into the mid seventies would be about as warm as it gets around here in the weekend. you'll see that in the five day forecast, so it's fine whether you know it wouldn't be a such a drag, and i'd be more excited about it if we weren't below 50% of rainfall average and the reservoirs are all in about 50% so we need rain, and it looks like there's gonna be another dry year. no real way around it. at this point. i'll see you back here tonight at 10 and 11. we'll see them. bill. thank you coming up in sports. extra inning day games for the giants of the a's sports director marco bania says the exciting finishes next and in prime time tonight on fox. it's the group b finals on the mass singer

6:56 pm
there, one and six that now hit the road for houston. mitch moreland getting involved in the way the a's do their business after a victory kind of been a tough go, but we kept battling way killed, battling and. you know, came up big there in the night celebrate? yeah. welcome to oakland and 10 innings also did the trick for the san francisco giants, who are not exactly pounding the baseball right now, but you know what? coming back, often opening season road trip three and three. they will take it against the supposedly overpowering padres and the giant fans always make that excursion down to san diego. pandemic or not. we got scoreless second, any darren. run deep off blake. snell watch this play or hate. matteo thought he was gonna make a great catch came very close to it. he actually helps us through the ball over the wall
6:57 pm
to nothing. giants will take it another homer for them. they've got 11 on the year. great defense. everybody worried about the giants defense, not on this play. mauricio do bond takes it away from eric hosmer. that's sensational behind kevin gossman. who turns in his second really solid start when seven innings gave up only one run, he approves of that work. eighth inning to one giants leading this guy just own separate cisco pitching wil myers. another homer, this one comes up up 71 mile an hour pitch from tyler rogers to two in the eighth inning and so again another one like the aids, the giants go to extra innings to take care of it. and 1st and 3rd occupied donovan solano, donnie barrels not ahead, but a fly ball deep enough out there to myers. dickerson not exactly a speed machine scoring, they'll take a 3 to 1 be paroled to the save and the
6:58 pm
giants come home for their opener friday and willie mays ballpark against the colorado rockies. let us get to someplace stuff. i guess it's fun. you need to check it out. tell me what you think we're calling this camera in danger mint. look at this foul ball off the bat of time, neil, that that's gonna be an expensive little foul temper. right there. behind the plate is think that that would probably happen on more occasions than it actually does, and we're gonna go to some chip penis on the pitch. this is the conquered cap champions league debut of the team. philadelphia gets up. oppressor and ricardo blanco just knocks out jack wagner and philly will win one mil. and you don't often see that full on fight. remember senator that's the sporting life back to you guys. all life back to you guys. all here's what i wonder about zombies. (others groaning)
6:59 pm
what happens if they can't get any human flesh to eat? they can't starve to death-- they're already dead. you take this one. i spent an hour last night on "how do vampires shave when they can't see themselves in the mirror?" well-groomed vampires meet in pairs and shave each other-- case closed. yeah, okay, so, zombies. i guess it depends on the zombies, raj. are we talking slow zombies, fast zombies? like, in 28 days, if those zombies didn't eat, they starved. you're thinking of 28 days later. 28 days is where sandra bullock goes to rehab and puts the audience into an undead state. hey, don't bag on sandra bullock! you think it makes you look cultured, but you just come off as bitter. dr. siebert, twelve o'clock. wolowitz: why's the president of the university slumming in the cafeteria? perhaps he's emulating shakespeare's henry v, who dressed as a commoner and mingled among them to find out how he was being perceived by his subjects. of course, if he'd have read any of the 1,300 e-mails
7:00 pm
i've sent him on the subject of his administration, he could have saved himself the trouble. or maybe he heard it's tater tot tuesday. that's why i'm here. hey, there's my favorite geniuses! how are we doing today? that depends-- how much longer do you plan on fondling my shoulder? sorry, dr. cooper, i forgot you have a touch phobia. it's not a touch phobia, it's a germ phobia. if you'd like to go put on a pair of latex gloves, i'll let you check me for a hernia. siebert: yeah. so, listen, fellas, who's up for a little party this saturday night? open bar, good eats, might even be a few pretty girls. sounds great! i'm in! hold on. just because the nice man is offering you candy, doesn't mean you should jump into his windowless van. what's the occasion? just a little fund-raiser for the university. aha! the tear-stained air mattress in the back of the van. i understand your reticence, dr. cooper, and i sympathize, but the hard facts are, occasionally, we have to shake a few hands and kiss a few butts to raise money for our research.
