6:31 pm
of some light showers kind of pushing in nothing really heavy. you see just a light amounts of rain rolling through parts of the bay area in green and some of that moving in along the peninsula right now into parts of the south bay. we continue to see a couple raindrops now making their way into san jose as well. bill p this and also the freeman, of course, the santa cruz mountains they're getting some nice rain drops coming in their direction as well. while the east bay, they're seeing some light rain showers into pleasanton livermore lafayette into conquered in oakland and even san leandro, just some scattered light showers right now. for the most part. but there's plenty more to come back. here we go. we've got a system setting up. now you've got this area of low pressure off the coastline. that's going to be factoring into your friday right now. we've got all as moisture without a real good trigger. the squeeze out. heavy rain. so what we're going to see, it's kind of just on and off showers here over the next 24 hours. then we'll get into some heavier stormy conditions. i think late thursday night into friday. the weekend looks very wet. a long range forecast models. want to show you some of the totals here. they've been looking very impressive when we start talking about these atmospheric river
6:32 pm
events. we can get a whole lot of rain in a short amount of time over the next 24 hours or so. you can see the rain amounts around the northern half of the state looking good and then really start to pick up upwards of 2 inches and rain there in reading almost 2 inches in mendocino. the bay area see all the rain falling as well right through saturday and i saturday night and sunday and here you go. that main event coming in overnight on sunday into monday. and look at all that rain totals may be over 7, maybe 8 inches plus maybe some of the mountain tops in northern california could see as much as 10 inches of rain between now and then. guys, back to you. thank you, lawrence. and of course cloud for can help you through the storms. you can always stay up to date on the latest weather in your neighborhood where ever you are use the camera on your phone to scan this qr code. you will. >> download our kron 4 mobile app. and there you'll find live radar. kawhi conditions and what to expect in the coming days and up today, forecast from lawrence. all on your mobile device. >> the nonprofit blood
6:33 pm
provider via talent as a critical blood and platelet shortage and is urging all eligible donors to please make an appointment. now by talent is the sole provider of blood to more than 45 bay-area hospitals and the company is reporting its type o blood supply has plummeted to under a 2 day supplies. the lowest level since may of last year. so joining us now from by talent to talk about this doctor jonathan use the senior chief. >> medical officer. thank you. so just give us a better sense of. if you could characterize the shortage and the risk associated with it to individuals as well as the communities as a whole. >> i think lee october is a robust month for us to clacton right now simply were actually distributing blood faster than donors are giving and patients continue to need blood. even during this pandemic critical surgeries cancer patients, trauma victims and it's been more challenging to collect a remote school donors being
6:34 pm
busy and absolutely. there is no replacement for blind and encourage individuals to make an appointment now through the end of the year and keep that appointment help provide that lifesaving therapy. >> what are some of the other specific problems. doctor, i know, for example, usually you get to big corporations holding blood drive. so why are you seeing less of that. >> yes, certainly with remote work that's quite impacted. our ability collect generally 65% of blood is collected through mobile drives and that's simply not able to be a curry and the current landscape. donors are busy or may not necessarily realize the importance of blood donation currently and it's really incumbent upon us to really stress the fact that donors are needed. there is no replacement for black patients require this blood. and actually we see demand for blood actually increased over what is expected. so really we really need these people to help support these lifesaving therapies. so to catch up to supplies where you would feel more comfortable. what how
6:35 pm
many people do you need to see come in. what exactly do you need to see happen. >> we would actually need a 1000 donations over out what we would be currently receiving to help bolster our supply and help support those those needs. and is particularly important as we come into the holiday months, which is always a challenge to collect. so if you can go to our website, count out or give us a call at 1, 8, 7, 7, 2, 5, vital because blood donation is light of the media. >> a doctor if things don't improve quickly on what are some of the possible consequences, for example, could doctors and hospitals. postponed procedures. i mean, how bad could it get? >> yes, certainly we never like to be in that position. we have heard elsewhere across the this is something that folks have been struggling have to make some of those challenging decisions to cancel or delay elective but we do not want to be in that position and asking people to mobilize to help support those patients. that really require this therapy to help support their their ongoing care.
6:36 pm
>> so of course, a lot of those donation events were canceled during the pandemic. as you said, a lot of people are still working from home. what are your avenues for trying to other than just one-on-one people can showing a picture site. what other avenues do you have for trying to get people and are you doing events at malls are now that things are beginning to open up. what is the plan? >> yes, certainly been actually engaging a lot with our hospital partners because they understand the importance for blood. so really we've engagement drives within our hospital new opportunities for drives. we've been actually reaching out to donors through the ways to other sort of media messaging so really trust trying to you know, shake all of the trees to find these donors because really, as i said before, is quite concerning and we do not want to a situation where we would have to build build these for patients that require this this therapy. >> is there any indication
6:37 pm
that people mistakenly. i they think that during a pandemic. it is somehow riskier to give blood or 2 gather some more to do that. is that one of the problems you're facing. >> that was a concern particularly early the surgeon general actually stress the importance of blood and safety of blood safety is paramount for by talent that we follow strict safety protocols related mitigation of covid risk for both our donors or staff or so we would ask people to these these lifesaving therapies and the needs of our community patients and and make those appointments. so that are you know, we're just about to wrap up here. but you get a sense that the public really understands when you say there's a shortage of blood. i mean, people go to a hospital. they need a transfusion. whatever the blood is there you say there's no food on the shelf. that's one thing. and if you go into a store. but when you say, oh, we've got a shortage of blood. do you
6:38 pm
think they really understand. what is it that you need to really stress here. >> well, yeah, i that's majority of individuals. when you ask them why did you donate. it's because they didn't realize over 50% of individuals are eligible to donate blood. and so the vast majority of individuals would be able to less than 3% actually do donate a red cells only have a 42 day shelf life and let's have less than a week. and so there is that continued ongoing need and some patients may use 3040, 50 red so donations and think of the number of donors that be required to support their their care so really it's incumbent upon us to help tell a friend if they're not aware of the need and to make those appointments to support our community. patients are doctor jonathan hughes, senior chief medical officer for vital under fight talent, i should thank you very much. hope people are listening we appreciate it. thank you. thank you. >> coming up next, and negotiations continue with the a's and the city of oakland
