6:00 pm
expected. but will it make much of a difference in this drought? tonight we have team coverage on this topic. chief meteorologist jeff ranieri is standing by with the conditions brewing in the pacific. first we start with nbc bay area scott budman live in san jose with how some in the south bay are mobilizing. >> reporter: you're right, peggy. today's forecast has people here already cleaning out their gutters and wondering if the forecast el nino will be enough to help push back our drought. all signs point to a very wet winter in the bay area. which is why robert cole is working overtime. >> looks like it's going to be busy here, we're going to have a lot of rain. >> reporter: cole is cleaning gutters all over san jose, getting ready for what the national oceanic and atmospheric administration says will be a very wet el nino year for the bay area. >> last month i probably did about 50, where i usually do
6:01 pm
five. this month i've scheduled -- i think about seven scheduled already this month. >> more than usual? >> way more than usual. >> reporter: but even with a lot of rain, experts say our drought won't go away right away. >> will this be the drought buster we need? >> reporter: that's the question we asked santa clara university professor and civil engineer ed mahrer, who says our warm weather is bad news even if we get very wet. >> more likely than not to be a warmer year than we've experienced in the past. what that means is there's less snowpack. snowpack is our los angelesst natural reservoir we rely on for our water supply. >> reporter: even with a very rainy forecast experts say we should still conserve water. because the drought is likely to stay around for a while. the national weather service says the el nino is not likely to be short but could last into the spring.
6:02 pm
reporting live in san jose, scott budman. >> we remember 1997, a lot of floods and mudslides around here. what will happen this time around? jeff ranieri is with us now. this is where your local expertise comes in. how much do you think the bay area will get? >> there's no exact number we're focusing in on that would show us 20 to 60 inches of rainfall per se. we do not have a hard and fast number right now. but when it comes to el nino, we're hearing terms like godzilla, major, monster el nino. i think it's too early to say that. yes, know the el nino is strengthening but the exact impacts are fuzzy. let's take a look at what we're tracking right now. when it comes to el nino we look at the equatorial pacific off the coastline of south america and further out in the 3.4 region. we have seen ocean temperatures warm since january, up 1.4 degrees. that brings ours total sea surface temperature anomalies up to 1.9 degrees above average.
6:03 pm
that, yes, is now rivaling 1997 sea surface temperatures of 2.3 degrees. that's when it peaked at its highest. when it comes to the forecast, noaa has a 90% chance of el nino throughout winter. what does this mean for us right now? the way we look at it, again, no exact rainfall totals with this. but the noaa forecast anomalies for december, january, february, all have the potential here of some above-average rainfall. yes, that's in the cards but here comes something totally different. that is the warm pacific blob out here in the west. no scientist knows right now how that is going to play into el nino. so plenty of caution here, at least over the nextsy days at this point. >> very good information, thank you jeff. from el nino to our heat this week, our free nbc bay area app is a good resource for your neighborhood-specific forecast. detectives in sunnyvale are combing for evidence in the
6:04 pm
city's first homicide of the year. the homicide happened inside the plaza del ray mobile home park. the prime suspect is a woman? >> reporter: that's right, peggy, the suspect is a woman. and we're just getting information from vest investigators that the victim died from blunt force trauma and a hammer was found at the scene. homicides here in sunnyvale are a very rare occurrence. a resident who's lived here over 30 years said she's never experienced anything like this. this afternoon, investigators discovered the body of a woman inside a home in the plaza del ray mobile home park on vienna drive. arriving officers were actually met by the suspect. they say she was the one who initially called police to report the crime. but they aren't saying much more. >> i don't have any information that the person became armed with a weapon. what i do know is she was cooperative at the time they contacted her.
6:05 pm
>> reporter: she was taken into custody. police won't confirm the relationship between the two women but several neighbors say the suspect and victim are related. one neighbor tells us he was just over at their house yesterday to fix a doorknob. >> really shocking. she was a nice lady. i've done a lot of the work for her. then when i do work for her, her daughter was never there. but then i guess something happened and her daughter moved in with her. and then this is the first time i met her. >> reporter: again, police won't confirm the relationship but do tell us one person is under arrest in the city's first homicide since last august. the autopsy results are in. some sobering details about the death of 8-year-old mattie middlet middleton. the santa cruz county coroner concluded the little girl died from asphyxiation and stab wounds to the neck. middleton disappeared on july 26th from the apartment complex where she lived with her mother. the following day, police found

6:07 pm
>> drop the gun, drop the gun! >> reporter: ka near sha is shaken by what happened in front of her west oakland apartment yesterday amp. she says a man with a gun ran right by her with police chasing after him. >> because he had a gun. he didn't want to drop that gun. >> reporter: oakland police say three officers ultimately shot and killed that man when he came at them with a gun. it all began in east oakland when police say they tried stopping a car involved in a july armed robbery. they say their high-speed chase ended with a man crashing into a car, attempting to car jack someone, and finally threatening police. >> the body armor camera shows the man was approaching with a firearm raised at the time of the shooting. >> reporter: while the mayor is urging people not to rush to judgment the deadly police shooting has many feeling angry. >> you could at least shoot somebody in the leg or something. >> reporter: last night protesters took to the streets closing the highway and breaking out the windows of a downtown
6:08 pm
starbucks. griffin says the destruction's way out of line. >> they don't make no sense. tearing up because y'all want to, that's not fair. >> reporter: griffin says the shooting will always haunt her but she thinks police did what they had to to keep the community and themselves safe. do you think the police acted correctly? >> yes, yes. yes, they did. >> reporter: the oakland police department is conducting an internal investigation while the alameda county district attorney's office conducts an independent investigation. oakland's mayor says this city takes the lethal use of force very seriously. she says she is going to ensure that all the protocols are followed and that an in-depth investigation takes place. a brush fire tangled traffic in the south bay this afternoon. take a look here at the northbound and southbound ramps

6:20 pm
through. and it really depends on the intersection. sometimes they'll stop if there's traffic. lots of times they won't. it appears what john avalos is trying to do is take the status quo and make it legal. rip it out and get paid. california says it is willing to pay you to ditch that water-sucking lawn. the state department of water resources is now offering $30 million in rebates to encourage homeowners to rip out their green grass. they can get about $2 per foot, up to $6,000. there's a $100 rebate for installing low-flow toilets. >> we need to make it as easy as possible for the consumer to make the water and energy-efficient choices that are in their best interests. >> the rebates come as the state just released new standards for low-flow shower heads and faucets sold in california. they hope all these incentives will eventually save our state
