7:41 am
may be 500 meals and we had to get back up on spring street to get into the camp. we had to go down the trail with a truck and distribute the meals where if we have access from the roadway. it's just so much easier. >> they're trying to make their way around this and they have to because those barriers that went up before thanksgiving are supposed to stay there until june of next year. time now 7.41. we'll be right back. ♪ ♪ ♪

7:43 am
tension builds... the plot twist the hero prevails in hollywood, this would be the end. but our here, we are just getting started. introducing the all-new nissan frontier.
7:44 am
but our here, we are just getting started. in a drought people. and in case you forgot the city of san jose. >> is going to remind you they are considering declaring a water shortage, which means they would limit you to be able to water landscaping to 2 days per week and that would remain in effect until the end of next october. so pretty much free year. to try to get us out of this pinch. more than a pinch, more than a pension. it's impacting more than just the south bay. let's jump to marin county where water officials there. >> took a survey of the reservoirs. and we are at currently 58% of capacity which is well below what we would typically be this time of year which is 66%. rain water says the outlook for rain. just about 0, at least in the short term. so they need everybody to continue to conserve and conserve more. if you haven't been doing your
7:45 am
share so far. john can tell you that the chances of rain are like slim to none. and right now, which means no snow, which is unfortunate and i'm waiting. >> to hit the slopes today. pass. keep holding on so what is it going to be good. i hope soon. but there is no sign really the near future of anything that could break through. >> this high-pressure wall. that's just pushing any sort of rainfall or snow for that matter. well, out of the region all the way up into western canada. so what we're in the midst of is this, which hey, it's beautiful, but i think we'd all rather be talking about some rainfall. just knowing that we absolutely do need it so badly now. it is a beautiful bright morning. you can see the fog if you look really closely that sitting right there in portions of the bay. this fog is patchy dense, though. so as you drive into work, if you do encounter anticipates some lower visibility because of it. you see the rainfall to our north up in washington. the jet stream is being sent well up to our north as this
7:46 am
ridge of high pressure proceeds to just sit right over the southwestern us keeping us dry and keeping us pretty hazy. you notice the haze yesterday. you're going to notice it again today. it's created the cap right across the bay. so a lot of the pollutants are just stuck with us and thus the moderate air quality that we're going to see yet again for your tuesday. futurecast shows the clear skies that we do have. guess what, we've got more of that tomorrow into the start of december december. first on wednesday. and we will look at clear skies taking us through thursday friday on into the upcoming weekend, too. today's daytime highs a little warmer than yesterday's were back up into the 60's for san francisco. 70 right at the coastline and half moon bay and also looking at some 70's more than yesterday. right along the bayshore saying carlos woodside at 72 degrees each. our warm spot for a second day in a row that you campbell at 74 degrees and the east bay. the low 70's for your daytime highs. hayward 72 degrees, oakland and richmond in the upper 60's. well, the
7:47 am
north bay looking at 60's to low 70's for your highs. santa rosa and petaluma credit 70 degrees each tomorrow's highs as well as thursday's will remain very steady in the low 70's before a modest cool down this weekend. nothing dramatic just enough to take us back down into the 60's for more of the bay area and certainly no chances of rainfall just yet. without the rain. well, your commutes have been pretty easy for the most part, we have seen some fog this morning and you even saw some of the bay bridge toll plaza earlier that has since lifted its bright out there. it's just a really slow go. now. it's full force back to work after thanksgiving and you can tell right there at the toll plaza from the maze to fremont street is going to get 22 minutes. a lot of traffic heading across the san mateo bridge as well from a 80 to one o one that's an 18 minute commute and a pretty easy one across the golden gate bridge, not just because it's so sunny and beautiful, but also because there's just not a whole lot of traffic. now, what we do have on highway 4 westbound is a slowdown that is just persistent. and that's
7:48 am
not because of any incident. that's just your highway 4 westbound traffic. this time of morning when you have a full force commute antioch to concord. that's going to take you. 42 minutes and also ample slowdowns all across the east bay. whether you're traveling 80 6.80, to 38 the connector between 5.80, as you head over to a t or right across from dublin on over towards ashland in san lorenzo all these areas are really slow as you do, take the connector from 5.80, over 2 to 38 do expect that pretty significant slowdown. in fact, traffic is stopped right there just because there are so many people back on the roads this morning. one. oh, one northbound from san jose to menlo park also very slow. 52 minutes right there. and 85 is not going to offer you much of a better option that one is also slow down heading northbound. so i'd advise may be getting off and heading up 82 instead and also looking a
7:49 am
slow commute heading from crockett to the maze. that's westbound 80 right there before you even get to the toll plaza that's already going to take you 37 minutes. james. all right. thank you very much, john. 7.48, is the time and we have to keep players. >> they're not going to play with the forty-niners as they face the seattle seahawks. this coming weekend. they got some injuries and klay thompson, as you know, is recovering still from his injuries and. >> he is on the court with the warriors. but not in games yet kron 4 sports director jason dumas says the peak. >> the niners won their 3rd straight game on sunday when they took down the vikings. but it did not come without call deebo samuel and fred warner and already been ruled out for next week's divisional matchup against the seahawks for deebo if a strained groin and will be out one to 2 weeks. warner. >> he's dealing with a hamstring kyle shanahan said someone is going to have to step up where d both who is on the shortlist for mvp this season. >> it's been a big part of our offense. but i think we're in
