5:13 pm
isn't that delightfully different? rain is now pulling out of the bay area. there were several good downpours over the last 24 hours and gusty winds did take down some trees in the north bay as well as a renda and lafayette. so far this season. we've had a good amount of rain not enough to end a drought, but water officials like the pattern that we've been seeing. for our area. this extraordinary rainfall we had in october. actually has created a situation where it's probably likely that will end up with at least normal rainfall this year. and at this
5:14 pm
point, at least in the marine county in the north bay. they've had an estimated 20 inches of rain so far this season, and while it rained here in the bay area, take a look at this. it snowed in the sierra. several inches of new snow fell overnight and into this morning in the higher elevations. our chief meteorologist, bill martin has been tracking it all for us, and he joins us now with a look, bill. yes of course. early rain means it gives you a better opportunity to get normal rainfall, but we need much more than normal rainfall, so we really have to keep rooting on these weather systems. last night system was pretty darn productive. i mean, this is one of the. wetter early seasons i can remember. hence the records we saw in that atmospheric river mount tomah pius had almost five inches of rain can feel coming up on three inches of rain. occidental almost four inches of rain, mostly north bay numbers of santa cruz mountains, came in at about two inches of rain. so very significant, really good. the south bay didn't get much bloody inland valleys didn't get much. it really was about that atmospheric river, slamming into the coastal hills and just draining out water,
5:15 pm
and that's what happened. we had tons of rain fall out in the north bay. like i say. mount tab up over 3.5 inches. santa rosa coming in at almost two inches, san francisco just under an inch and then san jose at 20.3. and that's the thing with these atmospheric rivers. they take a focus point when they when they focus on something. that's where the rainfall so look at san jose and even look at san san san francisco to san jose, right, so. three quarters of an inch more easily in san francisco in a function of maybe what 30 miles. something like that 38 miles. so you go 38 miles to the north of san francisco. boom. there's your half foot of rain or your four inches of rain. so that's how atmospheric rivers work there very productive for the or washington or the mount make shouts to area in the lake oroville area, which is always what you concern yourself with and in the mountains for snow, because you're you know you're putting snow obviously for the spring, but you're also putting water in those surface reservoirs orville and shasta, which are the two largest surface reservoirs in the state, and the two most important. so last year mark
5:16 pm
put this together last year. san france santa rosa had at this time 1 1/100 of an inch of rain right now we're at 14 inches of rain. annual rainfall for a place like san francisco is around 20 inches, right. so sound roses already. up to that point are nearly up to that point, so we've done well. the long range model, though, drives us out, and that's one of the nice thing about. um this pattern is we're getting breaks. you know, real fist kept coming. like even last night's storm. there was significant rain. if we had one behind that you start getting hydro problems. but when you have these breaks like now we're going to see a break. you see here as a rule the model through you're going to see. everything stays to the north. well to the north. you see that arc over the top. that's just figure that's the jet stream. you see that blue and the green. it's kind of about the jet stream is so it's our king. up over. that's a ridge of high pressure. seattle gets a little rain. few clouds here and there, but dry weather and by the weekend, the temperatures are back into the sixties, easily maybe some low seventies, so we're in a pretty good spot that way in terms of rainfall
5:17 pm
in the break, so we need to get in the mountains they did get a little bit of snow up to a foot last night. it was at higher elevations. we are basically. um waiting on the next storm. so when i come back, what we're going to do is we're gonna take a look at the long range model that actually is a long range mall it's pretty dry right through monday, but we got farther than that. and some of the models will take a peek and see what we can find. and then we'll look at the forecast in terms of temperatures. and what you can expect. cloud cover wise as we head through the rest of the week. great we'll see you soon. bill thank you. despite an improved water supply situation in the north bay, the marin municipal water district moved a bit closer. to getting a new emergency pipeline right there along the richmond san rafael bridge. ktvu tom baker joins us live from marin county with more on this project, tom. well you know, it's interesting 44 years ago, a similar pipeline actually saved marin during a very, very bad drought. the question now is will the same size pipeline or even one bigger? be enough. thanks to
5:18 pm
recent rains, the phoenix reservoir spillway is spilling, but there are no guarantees for the future for the marin municipal water districts, 191,000 customers on tuesday the east bay municipal utilities district planning committee. outlined and refined conditions it would require before the $90 million.08 miles long emergency water pipeline could be assembled and connected to marin. they would need to find a seller and then essentially, the water would be wield through the east bay mud water distribution system to their facilities. among the many conditions. no cost to the east bay municipal utilities district or to its customers, no less water or water pressure for its own customers and acceptance of the project by the city of richmond, where the project would be connected to the east bay, the sighting locations for the pump stations. are really going to have significant impacts on the rich residents in point, richmond. and they need to be
5:19 pm
reconsidered. their their locations are right at tewksbury and castro, which is a residential area we want for whatever those impacts are to be addressed by marin of for the richmond community, and some complain that marine is using the long known limitations on its own water storage ability. to claim it's an emergency to waive an environmental impact report. this application is premature because we're in water has not met the purpose and intent. of the california environmental quality yeah, if approved by next summer, it would pump and carry some eight million gallons a day over the richmond san rafael bridge. this is all highly complex because four or more different water agencies are involved. adding to all of this complexity is the fact that we've had a pretty good rainier so far. in the north bay. but the questions still arise. will the rains keep
5:20 pm
coming? well, the drought be over. and when will the next drought come? how do you solve that problem? what do they need to do both now and in the future. now why a pipeline will consider this eight million gallons a day to get that over here with trucks, you'd have to have full size gasoline tanker trucks crossing the bridge 900 times every day. reporting live. tom vacar ktvu fox two news. so, tom, what's the next step? you said this could be approved by next summer and $90 million project, an eight mile long water pipeline. how long potentially would it take to build something like that? well it was certainly they get the approvals they expect to have it online in the summer of 2022. so what, eight or nine months from now? all right, tom baker reporting live for us tonight, tom. thank you. earlier today, u s senator alex padilla met with state and local leaders in san jose to talk about the
