this storm is going to bring several inches of rain starting in the north bay. ktvu meteorologist mark tamayo is tracking the storm and joins us live with the details. hammer. either christina yeah we're used to talking about some strong storms, but it seems like this system is kind of on another level. this will bring really significant rainfall and the real concern is that heavy rainfall will last for quite some time into your sunday so. just in general. for tomorrow. we have road closures that could be a possibility down trees and power outages. flash flooding near the fire burns owns that could lead to a debris flow and here is that culprit. atmospheric river, a narrow band of a lot of moisture being directed toward one spot and that one spot will be the bay area. look at those rainfall accumulations. they keep continuing to go up the projections around too. to possibly eight or nine inches for the hills of the coastal hills of the north bay satellite showing you things developing right now, there is that big cloud to shield offshore. a lot of moisture tucked in behind this, and this is all setting up to be up to
be a significant almost extreme rainmaker for the bay area. here is the satellite and radar right now. we had some scattered showers throughout the day today, especially up. in the north bay. there's not a lot of coverage on the radar currently, but that will be changing later on tonight into tomorrow morning, here's a live camera looking out toward the oakland estuary. we continue to have the clouds moving in, and these are just amazing projections and unfortunately, of course we could use the rainfall and you get this much rainfall within a short amount of time that could create some hazards that could lead to flooding. and as a result, we have a flash flood watch for the north bay for the fire burn zones and the santa cruz mountains and you can't see for the 2020 burn zones and also wind advisory winds will continue to be a big issue with winds gusting over 50 miles an hour we'll have more on this system and will update the radar coming up in a little bit, mark. thank you. so the incoming storm brings with it some much needed rain, but all the water comes with its own set of problems. ktvu greg liggins, his life and nap where people are getting ready for it, greg. andre historically,
downtown napa has been prone to flooding that usually happens when the napa river is full. but as you can see behind me, that is a non issue right now, but the storm could still bring problems. this ace hardware in napa has seen brisk business the last few days. anything to do with water mitigation. ken graham showed us one of the most popular items, something called play sand. this palette of £50 bags is going quickly. basically a sandbag is in a porous material were play sand as wrapped in plastic. that's not going to allow moisture to come in and out. rick sonny knows his next couple of days will be wet and dreary. so he came in to buy a tarp and other supplies after already completing the majority of his reign prep work. we claimed our gutters made sure that they can flow out with the leaves coming in this time of year. we've tried to take everything i could blow away and batten it down with the napa river at low
levels due to the drought. there's no threat of it's spilling over its banks, but the county has prepared for localized flooding and other potential problems. so we do have stormed a trolls and roads crews who were patrolling over the weekend looking for potential problems. we have a lot of folks who are on standby monitoring storm conditions. with the storm expected to bring three or more inches of rain and the napa mountains. there are many potentially vulnerable areas in the burn scarred zones like here in deer park, there's a flash flood watch in the region, where a deluge could send debris flows cascading down the mountains. these are the areas of concern because obviously the they're the grounds are on stable, so that's that that's definitely could be impacted with these rains in some burned out areas where the ground is particularly unstable property has already been cleaned up in erosion mitigation work completed. but with hundreds of acres of burned out hillsides. there are plenty of vulnerable areas. first responders from various agencies say they are prepared for whatever the storm may bring one welcome benefit
from the impending rain a significant reduction in what has been the biggest risk this year. definitely minimizes any potential risk as as long as far as wild land fires. now at one point this afternoon, the sun was actually peeking through the clouds for just a bit. since then it's been on and off drizzle as you can see. right now it is on and of course, this drizzle is expected to turn into some real rain. tomorrow reporting live in napa. greg liggins ktvu fox two news. it is going to turn to some real rain. all right, greg. thank you. and we learned in the last hour or so that san matteo county has issued evacuation warnings. proportions of these caesar, you burn area. it will be upgraded to evacuation orders at eight am tomorrow morning. officials say a temporary evacuation point has been set up at half moon bay high school. those same concerns about the ccu burn scar area prompted santa cruz county officials to issue evacuation orders there. deputies from the santa cruz

cinematographer and injuring a director misfired days before the fatal shooting, according to the l a times as matt finn reports we're also learning that the incident happened just a few hours after some crew members. and walked off the production over working conditions. court records reveal an assistant director on the set of the film rust handed alec baldwin, the prop gun just moments before the fatal shooting, telling baldwin it was cold, indicating it was safe to use. and investigation. determining the assistant director did not know the gun was loaded with live rounds. there's a really clear protocol when you have a firearm on set, and clearly the protocols weren't followed.

camera crew workers walked off the set just hours before the incident in los angeles. matt finn fox news. tv fans are mourning the death of an actor who rose to fame with tom hanks in the early 1980 sitcom bosom buddies. peter scolari died yesterday following a long battle with cancer. he was 66 years old. salary starred with tom hanks in the popular but short lived comedy. he was also nominated for an emmy for his role as tv producer michael harris in the mid 19 eighties comedy newhart. salary went on to appear in several t v shows and broadway stage productions. california jobless numbers released this week show a sharp uptick in residents filing unemployment claims. ktvu tom vacar looks at the trends and reasons why the state's job market has been so slow to recover. at 7.5% each california and nevada have the dark distinction of being tied for the nation's highest
unemployment rates. nevada continues to suffer low tourism. california has lost so many small businesses that there are far fewer jobs to return to. also many lower paid workers are apparently holding out and waiting to see if employers. will continue to raise wages to a liveable level. recovery isn't going to be at the speed that a lot of people talked about. earlier this year example, the golden state gained only 47,000 new jobs in september, less than half the average monthly gains in many previous months. texas had gains of over 95,000. new jobs. um can florida had gains of over 65,000 new jobs? both of these economies are smaller than ours. last week, california unemployment claims rose steeply. to some 80,700 that represents almost one third of the entire nation's claims well above the state's proportional workforce. if there's a ray of sunshine in this that job gain represents a
quarter of all the new jobs in the nation last month. it's also an indications the entire economy is slowing down, not just california, but more than any other state. california has something in its dna, already producing a new crop of new jobs, they entrepreneurial dna. in our state's economy is the single most. um encouraging part of california's economy, and we've learned a lot about the old way of working, considered highly efficient. just two years ago, people have come to realize how much of crete endemic so called work activity. was a waste of time where there was unnecessary business means or ridiculous business trips, or, um, spending all day on emails that most of what was being done. um. was not useful activity back to the office every day and the way things were all the time it work may end up being a relic of the past. tom vacar ktvu,
fox two news. rain not the only thing in the air fall is also in the air and the rain held off today long enough for the folks are in danville to enjoy the start of the city's fall fest celebration. the 29th danville area chamber of commerce fallfest kicked off today. the family friendly community event is known as the fair of 1000. pumpkins featuring a beautiful collection of hand blown pumpkins, along with street vendors, kids activities, live music and bear. and wine for the adults. the festival continues tomorrow from 10 a.m. to five p.m. well, halloween came a little early for some underserved kids in san francisco's chinatown. the children enjoyed a block party of sorts with face painting a magician and pumpkin carvings. organizers passed out candy, and each child received a goody bag before they left. well the sierra is expected to see several feet of snow from this early season storm kevin cooper from lake tahoe tv was on mornings on to today with details about what this means for tahoe area ski resorts. the
mountain operations teams have pretty much slowed down their snow making operations working towards those november openings. and what they're doing right now is just wait, watch and see. so here at north star, they were running their snow making systems over the last several days, but what they're going to do is watch this system come in tonight. in the sunday through monday and tuesday to see how much natural snow they get, and then they can make their decisions. mammoth is a little bit higher, and they did get some significant snowfall over the last 24 hours. but right now in tahoe, even at the peaks above me, there was only 1 to 2 inches, so it is. it's super exciting, because if you read the forecast, they're talking about the moist moisture and recorded history here in the tidal basin from this system coming in from the pacific. group says this storm will likely be problematic for highway 50. there is the possibility of down trees and other road hazards near the calle door fire burn scars. anyone planning to drive to lake tahoe this weekend should check the caltrans website for the latest road conditions on
highway 50 and interstate 80. caltrans says tioga pass road on the way to the yosemite is now closed. the road officially known as highway 1 20 runs through yosemite all the way over the sierra. the road will be closed until at least late monday after the storm passes. ktvu meteorologist. mark tamayo is here now with a look at where the storm is this our high mark? hi there, christina. yeah, well, the leading rain bands approaching the north bank host line right now, and things really ramp up late tonight into tomorrow morning. typically we're used to talking about some strong storms. and as i mentioned earlier, this is kind of next level for us here in the bay area, so we don't want to be surprised because this will be a long duration. heavy rain event and those numbers. typically we're talking about a quarter of an inch to maybe two inches. look at that range 2 to 9 inches. that is a lot of rain coming down in 24 hours, most of it in 24 hours, and that is a serious concern. winds gusting over 50 miles an hour. as you heard, we're talking about winter storm morning. the sierra could be a talking about 1 to 3 ft. as new snowfall in the sierra.
take a look at the rainfall projections through monday, the highest totals up in the north bay, especially for the coastal hills, but the entire bay area covered with some pretty good rainfall, not as much of the south based safer san jose closer to a two inches. here is one of the forecast models showing you those numbers really adding up. as you can see, these numbers apply. change of it, in fact, is actually showing you over three inches in san jose. but you get the idea we're not just talking about oh, just a little bit of some rainfall. this will be coming down with quite a bit of some force for a long duration for tomorrow. here's the satellite and usually will say okay, there's a cold front out here. and it moves from north to south we have the rainfall moving in. it's kind of moves over us, and it moves out the problems that nup is this this will actually be kind of like your garden hose directed a lot of moisture focus right here in the bay area, and that is the key concern with flash flooding. special around the fire burn zones and, of course, the gusty winds as well showing you this. the satellite in the radar, some rain showers moving into portions of the north bay right now, and you can see some
more coverage offshore. this was not too concerned with but the main activity moves in overnight is into what your sunday here's a live camera. looks like our cameras kind of shaken around a bit, and the winds will continue to a ramp up with winds around as we showed you over 42, maybe 50 maybe 55 miles an hour. forecast models showing you this and you can see what happens here we are 11 o'clock tonight. the rain coverage on the increase and then look at this. this is three o'clock sunday morning, the focus will be up in the north bay. not as much activity in the south bay this is nine o'clock and look what happened sunday afternoon. this is one o'clock sunday. this is five p.m. sunday, so if you can stay inside and hunker down throughout the afternoon hours tomorrow. that would be a good plan. and then it kind of slowly moves across the south bay. this is late sunday night and monday and then finally monday. we get a chance to attract still some showers, but it looks like the activity kind of dissipated throughout the day on monday, the bulk of the shower activity will be on monday morning. here's the forecast for tomorrow of course, the heavy rains
temperatures in the sixties with the wind advisory those strong, gusty winds when i was putting this five day together, just just just the extremes here. we're going from this major storm on sunday. the chance of a shower in the monday and look at this. we're back to fall warm temperatures by wednesday and thursday. lots of sunshine temperatures on track to reach the mid seventies, so we definitely will need a break and it's headed our way. but tomorrow and into early monday morning could be a challenge here across the entire bayer. all right mark. we have been warning college football was treated with the longest game in history. today joe fonzi will have the stunning upset and the record breaking amount of overtime. next in sports and coming up tonight on the 10 o'clock news concerns about falling trees, power outages and flooding. we continue to follow preparations for the incoming storm, which is now just a few hours away. from danva
