county relies on the russian river as its main source of water, but water levels here are low and getting lower, so to reduce its reliance on the river the utility sonoma water has dug deep. 800 ft deep to be exact that underground water is treated and safe to drink this wells helping us meet a state mandate to reduce our diversions off the russian river. and actually be able to make it through this very severe drought. each dairy cow drinks about 40 gallons a day they another livestock will be getting about a quarter of the underground water. the rest will go to the public through different water utilities. the district expects to build a water recovery system to replace the water. it's taking out now with water from the winter rains in santa rosa rob roth ktvu two news. the ceremony will be held in santa rosa tomorrow to mark a grim anniversary four years since the massive and deadly north bay fires. the firestorm erupted on october 8th 2017. resulting in a cluster of fires

right tomorrow morning showers up in lake tahoe, even snow above 9 8000 ft. something like that. and then clouds clear out tomorrow morning and then here comes tomorrow night into saturday morning. so you see what we got? that's how it's going to be. so you know how today was, that's how tomorrow's gonna be just like that, in the next couple of days are gonna be very similar as well. so you can have clouds is going to be cool. it's not going to be overly warm, but there'll be periods you're standing in the sun. or if you're in the sun, it's going to feel fairly warm, you know, mid seventies low seventies sixties for most of us tomorrow, and then by the weekend, we'll see the low seventies and then you see the green. there are some little bit of drip drops coming out of the area, and you know around the area. but none of it's substantial and we're not expecting anything substantial. be nice. like i said, i hope i'm wrong, but i don't think it's going to happen. i think we just got a lot of moisture but without any strong dynamics to guide it, and that'll change as soon as we get deep into the winter passed, you know where early it's october once we get a little further into winter. the dynamic start to change right. the jet stream gets
going quicker. temperature disparities aloft become greater. they will share the temperature shirt becomes greater and you begin to get significant rain events and that's what we're looking forward to, but not this week. but possibly by the second week in october. maybe okay so as you look at the forecast, highest greens or sixties yellows are seventies tomorrow just like today. next day. just like today. it's all kind of the same, very similar weather pattern, which is great, and that keeps saying it's great because the idea that fire dangerous what we're worried about and this is really, you know, you know if we're not doing fire stories right now, right, so it's good. and this event right now moving through northern and central california over the next couple of days is dropping rain, uh significant rain on some of the fire zones like the windy fire, dixie fire. they call their fire so just helping get those things put out completely. okay so i'll see you back here on sunday night, and i hope you have a good weekend. we'll see you then. yep. you too. thanks. metallica cyprus, sylvie offspring just some of the band's taking part in the
