latest drought monitor with no real rain lately. we're not seeing much of a change, especially right here in the bay area, you can see our entire region is still an extreme drought or exceptional trout. those conditions have prompted a number of bay area water agencies to impose water restrictions. and as ktvu tom vacar reports tonight, many districts will not get any of the water that they've requested from the state. heading into next year. the bay area water agencies that will receive no state water project water include the south bay's valley water, the alameda county water district and the zone, seven water agency. in all, they served 2.6 million bay area customers. professor and engineer, jay lund is a renowned watershed expert at u. c davis. most of the agencies, particularly the urban agencies , will have backup plans. they'll have water storage and groundwater and other reservoirs. they'll have water that they might purchase from farmers that have other sources

10:49 pm
sprinkle. that's not the main story. the main story is so if you look at, um this area right and get it open for you can't get to it. but that area out to the west of us where that you see, it's lower latitude moisture coming our way. and so that is a potential for a bit of an opening of rain window. if you will. there's that atmosphere wherever we've been talking about, really, for a while and few weeks anyway. and is it that ridge of high pressure goes? so do we right here. the ridge starts way out here at the dateline. goes all the way out past the great lakes around the great lakes for drops, and we've had record high temperatures all through this area, the western united states, two thirds of the country essentially is under this ridge of dome of high pressure. and that's why we're not getting rain. that's why we've been talking about it so much, because when you get a big ridge like that, it's hard to break it down. so this thing on sunday night monday is enough to tweak it. press it down a little bit and start to cut into it and then open the door for
10:50 pm
subsequent systems to come in and knock it down further and bring rain. that's how it works as a big ridge that i can't. remember if i've seen a ridge that that broad that lasted that long. that had that kind of an impact. i can't remember a time . but you know, it's been 35 years watching this stuff 67 today or tomorrow in santa rosa 63 in napa. your forecast highs are generally going to be a little cooler, but still nice mid sixties. come on. it's december. beautiful day tomorrow . air quality. it's not bad. it's just to see a little smoking. he's in the atmosphere. that just has to do with the inversion. when you get warm air like this. this time of year, you get a couple of things should get inversion which sets up the valley fog, which will see late tonight, early tomorrow morning, and you also get quality issues and that's what we're saying. not a big issue, but it's noticeable for sure a lot of the smoke in the haze. i'll see you back here at 11. all right. thanks so much bill admitting toxin that was stolen during a car burglary at chabot regional park in oakland, has been reunited with her owner,
