vastly different from one to the next, so they know that it is up to each individual county that these metrics on their own, because we all have different vaccination rates, different demographics, so it is entirely possible for one county to lift the mask mandate before another. they know this. they just ask the public for a bit of understanding and patience. >> thanks. go ahead of the website, kpix.com , for more details on the roles to shed masks mandates. a 15-year-old girl was killed in a road rage shooting in oakland. that is the 109th homicide in the city this year. oakland homicide total for this year has now matched that of the entire year of 2020. the most recent death along this street. the teenage girl was in the car with her uncle when he and another driver began arguing with each other. the other driver, or another

gets hauled in. no countwill provide some relief. according to sonoma water, that well will provide water for farmer hauling programs, and drinking waters for areas that normally rely on the russian river. however, it goes a step further. according to sonoma water, two other wells will be able to capture rainwater and winter water flows from the russian river. that water was going to the ground, acting as a reservoir for periods of drought. >> the level of need is probably the most drastic that it is ever been as far as hauling water goes. >> this project was actually designed to take water in the winter when it's more readily available, use a recharge facility like this to put it back into the groundwater, to sort of bank that water for most years, and be able to pull it out like we are doing today in drought conditions. that is the future of water for sonoma county. >> is all part of the santa rosa plain drought resiliency project, to actually give the aquifers back.

into early tomorrow morning, but look at home. maybe a drop of rain tomorrow morning before you wake up, and by the time i get into most of tomorrow, you get blue skies. it will still feel like fall, but you will see more blue sky, and the class will come in for the second half of the day, and we will do it all over again for friday night into saturday morning. a few more light showers, and they don't have much luck. by the time we get into the heart of the day on saturday, plenty of sunshine. it won't look like this for saturday, whatever your plans are, or for that second game at oracle. it will still be cool and breezy, though. some of the models are getting overzealous by saying we make it 0.01 inches of rain. that wouldn't be much of anything. in this era, a couple of inches. that is enough that can mess with the drive, heart of the day on friday. anyone going to the sierra, that is not a blockbuster snow maker, but it is the first dusting. it will make the mountains look
ready for a time, and it will get a headache for anyone driving up there and doesn't know it is coming. once it leaves, we get to the next story. on monday, there will be a fall offshore wind event. it doesn't look too extreme, but there is a fire weather watch. how is this for weather whiplash. it starts monday morning and goes through tuesday. we just have not gotten enough rain at home to put an end to fire season. morning lows tomorrow start off in the mid-50s. daytime highs stay where they were today. sunday is the warmest day in the whole 7 day forecast. san jose, mid-70s by sunday, then you cool down a bit from there. as we look across the microclimate, same story. near 80 on sunday, and then you cool back down into the mid-70s by next week. how to you, charlie.
