example, that those shots last too much longer. in fact, for ever and many people. so it turns out that, you know, we don't know for sure. the idea of abuse or last much longer than. you know, 6 months that many people worry about. >> right now that pfizer booster is approved for just a select group. there is talk that federal officials might opened up to a larger group down the line live at ucsf. dan kerman kron 4 news. >> thank you, dan. coming up as your car ready for the rain because more rain is on the way. what you should have handy experts say case things take a turn for the worse and the are back and they're ready to go for a sports director. jason do much joins us live from chase center with what to expect tonight and this season. and finally some answers after a family mysteriously dies while out on the summer hike. what we're

several hours or rain starting early tomorrow morning. i think the commute could be a mess, especially early on. then by about 9 o'clock or so. we're getting the back side of that. we're just about done by the afternoon. maybe a couple sunny breaks that will catch a break. before we get the following day. then on saturday starting out mostly dry. but then things begin to change. start to see another week system coming in showers beginning to pick up kind of on off pushing to the bay area as we head through saturday night as well. and then it looks like we get ready for sunday and wow. look at that. that is a tremendous amount of moisture. the models really start to pick up on this now that is extremely heavy rainfall around the bay area watching for the possibility of some flash flooding around some of the urban areas in some of the debris flows around some of the fire zones as well. so and in those areas, should you live in those locations. got to be extra careful. we're talking about the a lot of rain in a short amount of time. back here. some of the expected totals as we take you through time. yeah. nice little rain as we head in toward the next couple of days. a couple inches of rain over the mount
ops. then things change as we get the weekend and then that atmospheric river event hits and look at that. mendocino over 8 and a half inches of rain between now and then that all holds true. some very dangerous weather headed to california. guys, back to you. all right. lauren. >> despite the current rain and national oceanic and atmospheric administration. it's predicted that are drought is actually going to continue into next year. the agency, which is part of the national weather service released their winter outlook today in the brown areas on their map that shows areas that forecasted to either have their drought conditions continue or to get worse. the yellow areas. they're expected to develop drought conditions. meanwhile, drought conditions are forecasted to improve for parts of the bay area and northern california. so there's lots of room for runoff the rain in drought stricken bay area reservoirs. as for sure, plenty of room. but do not expect to see much of a noticeable difference.
>> in the levels of those reservoirs. anytime soon. experts say despite what could be a good old fashion. goalie washer on the way. kron four's rob fladeboe has that story. he's live from lexington reservoir in the south bay. vicki. correct me if i'm wrong, one of the reasons we love rob, is because we know goalie washer can enter the scripts when rob writes them. >> rob you the best. what's the latest? >> well, i think that's what's on the way according to lawrence, but out to grab, you know, some of our reservoirs, as you know, benefit imported water from sierra snow melt, but others like lexington reservoir here in los gatos entirely dependent on the rainfall. but the either way, they're going to need a whole lot more of what's on the way in the next coming no matter how much we get. there's more. >> clouds loom over lexington reservoir above los gatos. >> hinting of the first significant rain of the season this weekend. but even the
most optimistic weather forecast falls far short of what is needed to ease the drought says valley water vice chairman gary craig money. >> you're going to huge amount of rains and even one atmospheric river. it is not enough. it's that's a drop in the bucket. seriously. >> lexington reservoir is now just 18% full. all other valley reservoirs are down to a combined 10% of capacity, anderson riser or the valley's largest is all but dry for a seismic retrofit. >> the south bay water supply is at an historic low throughout the state. we are in an all time low and locally. we've way surpassed anything that we've ever been at since may be the 40's. >> when we started building reservoirs. it's that graham. >> what's needed is a long wet winter that saturates the ground allowing for runoff into those empty reservoirs and underground aquifers and not just those here in the bay area. we really need a good
snow pack. >> because that's 30% of the state's storage. and this year it all sunk into the soil and it didn't run off and it didn't go into rivers while every drop counts for sure. and welcome as they are. there are worries the much-hyped early storms that caused flooding in other problems. >> could actually distract us from the bigger picture says cremen. >> people have started the state. the question is will they continue to say when they see raining like the folks that called me and said why am i saving because it just rain. >> in other words, don't expect the water conservation measures to go away anytime soon. at vestal. this coming rain will at least lessen the fire danger in the hills around many of our reservoirs, many of which are located in. well inland areas live in los gatos. rob fladeboe kron 4 news. >> good reality check thank you, rob. now a quick check of radar as we head to break, you can see things have calmed down in the bay area, at least
