5:17 pm
cruz eased water restrictions. the two major atmospheric rivers and some other healthy rains that came to the bay area region since october, has worked wonders for water supplies. so the marin municipal water district and the santa cruz water company are both seriously considering easing their water restrictions in santa cruz. loch lomond reservoir is currently at 81% of capacity and just 10 ft. short of where the spillway would actually release water. downstream into the san lorenzo river. loch lomond is full, and we're good for at least that part that next year if it's not full as but you know, pretty full, then you know, we take a little bit more of cash, cautiously optimistic, kind of point of view, given that there's at least 6 to 8 weeks of peak rainy season left the odds are santa cruz will be full and restrictions will be gone. it's on or off. we're not going to phase them in or face them out.
5:18 pm
but santa cruz would continue to ask its customers to continue conserving. which most already do and will like santa cruz marines. watershed has been thoroughly soaked, allowing for more run off to get into the reservoirs in the last nine days . nicasio reservoir, for example , has gone up two ft if all of that water were in a one square acre water tank, it would have to be a tank almost 1700 ft. tall, twice as high as san francisco's transamerica pyramid in marin in the mount tamil pious, watershed. lake lagunitas reservoir has received more than 43 inches of rain. that's more than four times last year's rain and almost twice its historical rainfalls. it's seven reservoirs are 95% of capacity compared to 57% this time last year, as well as above its 77% historical average on this date. fundamentally this year where things are looking kind of good. right the other side of that coin take the five largest
5:19 pm
register register reservoirs in the entire state, the five largest normally this time of year, they'd be at 61% right now. they're just at 36. which means that the drought for most of california goes on and so do the state water restrictions which apply to everyone reporting live. tom vacar ktvu fox two news like bill always likes to say we're never really out of the drought, tom. thank you. thank you, jill. you knew that was coming like a broken record. but it's just how the state is you guys. if you had a lot of people just got here. it's not. you know, there's not that many people lot of people recently moved to the bay area. in california, california's about drought. it's about earthquakes. it's about fire. that's that's that's how it's always been read the old history books, the spanish, the indians. they all talk about those things . so anyway, we're always going to be in this dilemma on this is the outside situation across the country. right now. these are
5:20 pm
the current temperatures. minneapolis at three degrees 16 lemoine. got some icy conditions up in chicago. no real big storminess. the real storminess is up here in seattle up in british columbia, that atmospheric wherever they're going another two days of atmospheric river up there. they've already had 1.5. there basically is going to be about three days straight of heavy, heavy rainfall in southern british columbia. and we have course are on the southern end. and what that means is you see all this rain. this is the model. okay so i'm going to shoot the north. you see, british columbia? everything's going right up there through tomorrow into wednesday, little bit into thursday and then a little bit into friday as well, but it's all well north of us down at our latitude. we're looking at mostly just cloud conditions. partly cloudy kind of cloudy. yeah you know, mostly sunny. it's going to be a little bit. everything today is mostly sunny for my money. so it's a beautiful day. next couple days would be like that valley. fog is a thing. as you know, it was a thing this morning. it will be a thing again tomorrow morning. and the valley. fogle's you
5:21 pm
know, it'll keep things cool in the morning hours, but then the temperatures are expected to warm up. the dry pattern persists. now the long range models are pretty aggressive on dry for at least the next 5 to 7 days in some some a little beyond that. so we're doing good . we've had a lot of rain that a lot of snow. um you know, we just are going to have a dry period. which is can you imagine seeing this today? could you imagine if we didn't have those two atmospheric rivers that tom vacar mentioned if we didn't have those two if we weren't 100 5100 and 60% of rainfall average in a place like vacaville. if we were like last year when we were like 30% and now we're going to this dry period so we're very fortunate. we got the rain. we got the snow. now we just gotta hang on and hope that some of that bread british columbia water comes our way outside. live beautiful shot. that's why we live here. right here. that's why it costs so much to live here in such a beautiful place, and you see the marin headlands now green after a pretty dry summer. no fog media coast days are getting a little bit longer each day. you noticing that usually i show you this shot

years ago today, joe montana found white clark in the back of the end zone for the game winning touchdown against the cowboys in the nfc championship game. the catch set in motion of 49ers dynasty that produced five super bowl wins over the next 13 years, and this sunday. a familiar rivalry will be renewed as 49ers face the cowboys again in the playoffs for the first time in 27 years kickoff at 1:30 p.m. sunday in dallas. for this wildcard round matchup. the niners earned that spot in the postseason with a dramatic overtime win over the l. a rams in the final game of the regular season yesterday. ktvu sports saying carry joe fonzi here now and joe. that comeback victory for the niners was everything it certainly was doing. i can't believe that that catch was 40 years ago. today i still love looking at that old footage, no
5:31 pm
question. absolutely not good friend dwight clark to we can't help thinking about him. as you just saw 75 years of 49 are history. there's no shortage of dramatic moments, so game has to be special to call it an instant classic. but that's exactly what yesterday's win over the rams was that game was wild had, um yeah, that's that's that's a special one. for a game to be a classic. it has to have importance. there's nothing more important to a team on the final day of the regular season, then a game that determines whether or not you make the playoffs. falling into a 17 to nothing hole in the second quarter. isn't this suggested method to win a crucial game? i wasn't stressful at all. ah yeah. i mean, our game plan was going 17 0 17 3 a half. that was our goal. it's a testament this team. what that team then did was epic. it wasn't just a matter of pulling even which the 49ers did with the 14 point third quarter touchdown 49ers.
5:32 pm
it was then about coming back from another seven point deficit with only a minute, 27 left to tie and then winning with the field goal and a clinching interception in overtime. that was a game you dream of being able to play in, you know, especially how the game went. and unfortunately it enough to get the win. and as soon as the playoffs besides the score, what will always be remembered about the game was the effort by the quarterback wherever his career eventually ends up, jimmy garoppolo goes down in 49 are lower as someone who engineered an all time moment while working through a thumb injury on his throwing hand to come back in. lead us down there. how many other yards it was like close to contains a little over 80 to tie it up to senator with an overtime. he was unbelievable today. that's jimmy. he's a good football player. he knows how to bounce back. doesn't think snowball and he just flushes. it goes on to the next place a lot of emotions throughout the whole game to just stops and downs. getting off to a slow start and
5:33 pm
then coming back like we did it was it took everything the 49ers have to win or tie this afternoon to get into the playoffs. another reason why yesterday was a day to always remember for 49 or fans. what they did has happened only four times in team history. most memorably three straight years in the seventies and most recently, 36 years ago against sunday's opponent, the dallas cowboys, needing a win in the final day of the regular season and getting it to assure themselves of a spot in the playoffs. this jimmy garoppolo lead team can now be compared to those led by john brody. he'd like now to be compared to the teams led by joe montana and steve young. and it's hard to call it a bay area double because the former bay area team now calls las vegas it's home. but the raiders had an equally thrilling regular season finale last night with just as much at stake, the writers hosting their longtime rival, the chargers, with playoff status in the balance for both teams
5:34 pm

5:35 pm
exciting. but i didn't. i don't set out to just make the playoffs. it feels cool. it's awesome. but you know our goals. you know, this is one of them. but there was more after that, too. and next up now is what they're calling wild card weekend, which this year will be saturday, sunday and monday. so let's go back to you now, andre , but, yeah, not just two games anymore. now you can stay there for saturday, sunday and monday and watch football. i was going to say you're going to come to work that day. but you kind of sure to stay with ktvu is the nfl playoffs get underway. we have a section of our website for your 49ers coverage just go to ktvu dot com. well after more than two years of rehab for two different injuries, klay thompson returned to the court last night for the warriors. ktvu frank mallicoat was at chase center to taking the biggest game so far at that arena. it was pretty obvious who everyone came to see on this sunday night. oh, it's just a feeling of having you know a guy
