more than 100 years and on thursday the us drought monitor released a new map that shows just how dry california is according to th drought monitor about 30% of the ste mostly in the southern portion. i have no drought conditions whatsoever. but 70% of california through the middle in northern portions of california and all of the bay area are experiencing abnormally dry moerate amounts of drought and what that can mean is that the rivers could e low flow in the months ahead if we don't get more mois also the trees may be stressed because of the dry conditions and weould also be dealing with a fire season that is longer and more extre. then we have seen in the last cole of years and that is not good ews. the good news is that across the state right now califnia's water supply is in good shape. the reservoirs are at or above the historical average for this time of year. so that's good news up in the sierra they actually did a snow survey on thursday and and the snowpack of yearhere is the department
of ter resources talking about where we're at with drought conditions. >>sore sturridge's is doing good right now if we have to go throug to dryers that we stt looking at what additional conservation meures we need now is looking like februy will remain dry. however there is some rain in the long-term forecast possibly. coming up in march. but for now ithese clifford kron 4 try february we're hopi for i guess like a racle march. >>so do have a syst heading our way let's talk about it system that will finitely result in some snowfall up in the sier which tahoe actually now falling into drought conditions, boy as well as the the system that we do have this weekend isn't expected to make a big dent. >>and those moderate drought conditions that you are seeing in 2 counties here in the bay area or at least widespread in 2 unties, those being solano and contra costa counties, portions of alameda and even napa counties tapping into
those moderate drought conditio too. but the rest of us abnormally dry which is certainly a worse than we were to stt the season when we're actually stti a average as far as rainfall goes but that february the dry conditions sure to do a number on whe we're sitting with the drought. so we'd love to see some rainfall doesn't look like we're going to see a whole lot of it this weekend he the day a couple spotty showers are possible. but the system that is currently eing the bay area is goin to dump a lot of snowfall up in the sierra as for today, it's just going to result in some cloudier skies y're going to see cloud cover moving in er head through the day today so as opposed to last couple days that brought l that sunshine we're still actually pretty mild for your friday, just a whole lot cloudier tomorrow you're going to notice a lot of cloud cover to and into tomorrow evening there snowfall pushing into the sierra nevada so for those you that are maybe heading up to tahoe to enjoy the winter weather this weekend. do anticipate me slick roads on your drive back sunday as that snow moves in overnight. look at wh
happened sunday for the bay area while the tahoe area get snolooks very likely that we' going to remain dry. we could use that rainfall t it is a good thing at hey tahoe is getting snow the rest of this year's giving it to as ose conditions up there have also proven to be just as dry as we've seen. temperatures today in san francisco fall back into the 60's as you will also see right alonthe coast. now a lot of the bay area still remains in the 70's ke in millbrae and burlingame and further south on the peninsula. singh cars redwood city pa alto in woodside all 74 for your his while south baytemratures near 80 degrees. but not quit getting there pretty similar to yesterday real for the south bay. these pay also keeping the mid to upr 70's around similar to where you were at yesterday oakland 71 what walnut creek in concord each 77 north bay temperatures mid 70's out towards the coast of cool temperatures and since and beach and only 57 for the high today so some changes
from yesterday, especially along the coast as we do have a cool coastal breeze pushing back in into tomorrow, mostly cloudy skies remain a look at from 74 day to 64 on average tomorrow and even cooler ye on sunday while we snowfall in the sierra only the slightest chance of rainfall for the bay area on sunday. after that we drive back out for much of the rest of e week temperatures climb back into the 7s by wednesday and thursday. back to europe and all right, thank you let's eck in on traffic taking a ek at the idge's first. >>we have the bay bridge 80 weon stacking up a little bit off and on and some of the cash lanes you'll see folks off and on the right side, but overall it's been nice. it's a friday light sfar 8 minutes off to fremont street, this is onoh one across the golden gate. we're doing fine you won't have any major issues iraq actually i do see some flashing lights of ar the south tower, it's pretty far off but nothing reported there could be bridge crews could be something else going on i just
