6:15 pm
that system that moved through the area. a mandatory evacuation order happened issued around this area because it was near burn scar. so far, there are no reports of any injuries. here at home much calmer weather in the bay area following yesterday's deluge the clear skies making way for this view, check out that fresh snow on top of mount diablo, just one place our peaks have turned white. and from the east page of the south bay. we're also seeing snow at the summit of mount hambleton sky. foxx captured these pictures. the drenching atmospheric river exited the bay area early this morning and cold air filtered into the region. pushing low enough for snow to stick that big storm gave california a lot of precious badly needed water. so what is the status of our reservoirs? ktvu tom vacar took a look today at capacity and reports now for us tonight from sonoma county. as of midnight monday. california's major reservoirs keep getting more and more water from the weekend storm as the runoff finds its
6:16 pm
way into them. their major reservoirs still are very, very low. hydrologist and climatologist dr. peter glick is founder of the pacific institute . we need several more big storms really quite a few, frankly. before those big reservoirs even get to where they ought to be. for today, let's states five biggest reservoirs tell the tale shasta , the state's largest is only 25% full, but that's less than half. of its normal volume this time of year. lake oroville 31% full trinity 29% full less than half of normal new maloney's 37% full san luis 24% full, not even half of normal. the really big water demands in california, the central valley farms, the big cities along the coast and in southern california depend on the big reservoirs like sonoma managed by the sonoma county water agency. is by far the bay region's largest reservoir
6:17 pm
serving 600,000, north bay residences and businesses. if i had been standing here two years ago, i would have needed scuba gear in 2019. on this day. it was 87% full with much of the rainy season still to go. in 2020 as the drought set in. it was at 66% full this time this year, just 50% full, including the most recent rains. this is the second atmospheric river we've had and we're going to need a lot more of these storms before we're out of this drought . after two years of drought, it's going to take a lot of rain to fill up our reservoirs again. right now, most marin county reservoirs looked to be in better shape as we can see here at stafford lake. and the cossio reservoir, but that's because they're relatively small and in constant need of replenishment. so whether it's a big or small reservoir. the worry is this. sometimes we can have an incredibly dry january and
6:18 pm
february and that's what we're worried about. we're still not out of the woods yet. so for now , the atmospheric rivers bought us a little time but very little time. tom vacar ktvu, fox two news. the alice when we talk about water, it seems pretty sis . if ian here in the bay area does, nor in california and that listen, it's always going to be a thing. even if we get 200% of rainfall this year and 200% the next year and the next year. we're still going to have a deficit. we just are. we have such a large population. it's growing so fast. we use so much water for agricultural use so much water for you know, lawns and households. and what have you so. we just have to get used to that. so i can't stress that enough. it's california. it's not going to the drought does never goes away never goes away. it's always on. it's always a thing. mount tamil pius 11 inches of rain. it helps a lot. boulder creek, eight inches of rain. this is over the three day total, so we had a really significant rain of it. now, if
6:19 pm
you look at mount tam, you know mount tam on that late october atmospheric river, they were up over 30 inches of rain. in three days, so as big as this system was, and it was a really good system, 30 inches versus 11 inches, so you see that last system was historic. as i said it last night. this is just a really good storm surge really good storm. really good storm, but the other one was weak. when you start messing with historical records like that, last one did you know it's tough to tough to beat that. these are some of the more the totals around. so really, we really did. really really well. we've got more rain coming. the mountains are still getting a little bit of snow on and off. there are some power outages up in truckee. and we are looking for a winter storm warning to go into tomorrow night and into thursday morning as a next system of colder system, lower snow levels. 1 to 2 ft. of snow for the mountains, maybe an inch inch and a half of rain for our heavier spots, maybe two in the heavy spots. most of us are like san francisco may go half inch, so one more storm to go a little bit more of a break, and then we get going again next week.
6:20 pm
there's some more opportunities , so we have a nice pattern going progressive pattern. so that's kind of where we are right now. when i come back, we'll look at the five day and we'll dial in the temperatures in which you can expect day by day into the weekend. all right . thanks, bill. well, kentucky's governor says state parks will open up rooms for anyone who needs one. that's after thousands of people were displaced by this weekend's deadly tornadoes. foxes madeline rivera is once again for us tonight in mayfield, kentucky, one of two cities that president biden will travel to tomorrow. work continues around the clock to clear roads and clean up debris as a long recovery process continues here in mayfield, but i'll tell you what. it feels pretty good. to not just be pushing this stuff out of the way. but to be loading it up and taking it out of town. it may be several weeks until officials in kentucky tally the full scope of the damage after five twisters hit the state in the span of a few hours. in dawson springs. an official estimates more than 60%

6:49 pm
potential. and so i think blue canyon and below. i mean, there's still love is going to get down to 4800 something like that. maybe 4500 ft and so that'll put snow down on 50 and 80 pretty low just above the valley floor. here is the system . little breezy conditions as well will come in with it. the timing is basically overnight on wednesday. that's the main hitch and then something lingering on thursday morning for the big area, maybe two inches of rain. maybe 40 50 mile an hour wind gusts and another two ft of snow possible, so, with that in mind, a winter storm money will go into effect and stay in effect up in the mountains for through thursday morning. certainly and it'll be kind of nasty. this storm will be different. different this last one was aggressive, and they got up to five ft of snow in places. this one is going to have the potential to be more of a white out with winter weather storm blizzard more blizzard, the more high winds, you know, not as much accumulation because it's not the same storm is not as bis going to have a pop to it. it's
6:50 pm
got a frontal passages got dynamics that's going to pop. you know, i'm talking about that's what's going to happen here too. so somewhere late in the day, this shower start to show up in the north bay. and then by the afternoon kind of looks like this scattered showers and then it's the overnight that gets going. so here's tomorrow. here is wednesday morning, right? and then you see the clouds building that commutes dry. and then wednesday afternoon evening, it's raining up in the north bay, but still san jose oakland , not what's going on there, but by say, by 345 o'clock, we'll start to notice it. and then overnight it goes, and it's gone so by the thursday morning commute should be dry reminiscent a bit of what we experienced today, right in that same storm, but the idea the timing of that so the morning commute will be salvaged, most likely, which is. nice the afternoon commute might be a little bit damp. shouldn't be too bad. but in the north bay, i think it will be wet. so but the most, you know, i think one thing about community, i think about the core of the bay area where all the traffic is. there is the five day forecast and
6:51 pm

there's a different way to treat hiv. it's once-monthly injectable cabenuva. cabenuva is the only once-a-month, complete hiv treatment for adults who are undetectable. cabenuva helps keep me undetectable. it's two injections, given by a healthcare provider once a month. hiv pills aren't on my mind. i love being able to pick up and go. don't receive cabenuva if you're allergic to its ingredients or taking certain medicines, which may interact with cabenuva. serious side effects include allergic reactions post-injection reactions, liver problems,...and depression. if you have a rash and other allergic reaction symptoms, stop cabenuva and get medical help right away. tell your doctor if you have liver problems or mental health concerns, and if you are pregnant, breastfeeding, or considering pregnancy. some of the most common side effects include injection site reactions, fever, and tiredness. if you switch to cabenuva, attend all treatment appointments. with once-a-month cabenuva, i'm good to go.

6:59 pm
we'll see you back here tonight we'll see you back here tonight at 10. sheldon, do you want to put the tables after each section or in an appendix at the end? you know what? we wrote this paper together. i think we should decide together that they go in an appendix at the end. how about that? there is an "i" in "team." look at what we made. i know. it really is the best of both of us. it's got my math and your sassy takedown of the fundamental nature of symmetry. it's got my bottomless intellectual curiosity and your petulant refusal to spell "gray" with an "a" like an american. you realize we still have a lot of work to do before we can publish. perhaps we should divide and conquer. now, you track down all the citations and properly note them in our bibliography, and i will roll up my sleeves and decide what font we want to use. sheldon, there are hundreds of citations to track down. and thousands of fonts, but you don't hear me complaining.
7:00 pm
i am not gonna spend weeks in a library looking up old papers. can't we hire a grad student to do it? yeah, a grad student? i am not trusting our unpublished paper to some millennial. they'll put unicorn emojis on it and then post it on social media. why would they do that? economic anxiety, too much avocado toast, who cares? look, the point is, we can't afford to have this paper leaked before we're ready to publish. that's how you kiss the nobel prize good-bye instead of hello as i intend to do. i assume you mean metaphorically. absolutely not. if the king of sweden hands me a medal, i intend to smear it with purell and then kiss it. but what if we ask one of our friends to help us out? how about leonard? gee, i don't know. can we trust him? he's your best friend in the whole world. yes, but he's always struck me as the guy in the plane crash who doesn't wait until you're all the way dead to eat you. i think you can trust him. oh, amy, you never lose that childlike innocence.
