bring in the food and the other services and supplies that people in that area need. we've had trouble thanksgiving. we distributed maybe 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. >> yes. so the barriers went up just before thanksgiving and they will be there until june of next year. we'll be june of next year. we'll be right back. watch this. can i please get the cheddar loaded cheeseburger combo? wait, i know that voice...

limited availability in select areas. call 1.877.only.att. >> happening today. the city of san jose is going to consider declaring a water shortage and we all know that we're short water. if they do that, that would limit you to landscaping. just 2 days a week to watering like this, which i think you should be doing and they don't think you should be doing it. they're trying to get people to cut down. and if they do this, it would be in effect just pretty much for a year until next october. the end of next october. so you see the green lawn and then you see the brown one that for free. the brown and water, the sidewalk, by the way, ring county also wishes you a cut back even more the reservoirs are currently at just 58% capacity in. >> now normally for this time of year. they're about 66% to 2 thirds full nowhere near that and rain water says we're going to have to continue to conserve more than we have so
8:46 am
far because as they take a look at the forecast like john's been looking at that. it's the chance of rain on the horizons down near 0 and around this time of year. i start not counted by rain. but my snow because i want to see what happens in and that's kind of 0 that either the progress we made in october. a lot of that's melted away to obviously at those highest of elevations, the snowpack is there. >> at least we cumulative something. but top lake shore up in lake tahoe. it's all but gone at this point. you can see outside here in the bay area. it's back to what we've grown pretty familiar with these past few weeks, very dry and clear conditions. we do have some fog this morning. that's a bit of a change from where we have been. you can see that little line of fog right out there across the bay itself. and we are seeing some of it further inland as well. up along one o one half moon bay around redwood city. a particularly dense patch of it as well to our north, there's the rain. there's the snow. it's all stashed up in washington up into western

canada here in the bay area that high pressure ridge is sending it not just out of the bay but really out of anywhere near us across this region. this high pressure ridge is also contributing to the hazy conditions you've noted creating a cap across the bay that keeps or pollutants with us and why we do have moderate air quality for yet another one and why you'll notice that hazy view as you look at the horizon today, a nice and clear one tomorrow we're going to keep that around more clear skies for your wednesday as we make our way into december. the new month kicks off tomorrow. great weather for it. maybe even a record breaking day as far as temperatures go for some areas on into december. first as we see some highs warming possibly into the mid to upper 70's thursday stays much the same before a slight cool down into the weekend. today's daytime highs in the 60's solidly for san francisco. a few more 70's on the map, though areas like burlingame up to 71 degrees. carlos and woodside each at 72 and our warm spot in the bay for a second day in the row is campbell at 74 east bay
8:48 am
temperatures mostly in the low 70's hayward, a nice 72 danville and san ramon at 71 a few upper 60's across the north bay bike in napa at 68 degrees and avato at 69 tomorrow's temperatures averaging out to around the same as today's. but i do expect areas like the south bay to potentially see those mid to upper 70's. some of our warmest of temperatures. and as i said, maybe even a couple of numbers getting close to record breaking tomorrow. we stay dry and sunny all the way into the upcoming weekend likely into the start of next week as well as far as traffic goes this morning it has been a busy one on the roads. we haven't seen any major hot spots, but certainly some no injury traffic collisions that have resulted in some delays here and there and then those natural delays when so many people are heading back to work for the maze to fremont street. that's an 18 minute commute actually quite the improvement there. how long the toll plaza. 80 looking at 14 minutes to get you from a 80 to one o one across the san mateo bridge. it's been
8:49 am
beautiful on the golden gate bridge all morning long. clear skies a light wind relatively little traffic. a big improvement along highway 4 westbound, we were up to 40 minutes earlier from antioch to concord. now it's only 19 minutes still running pretty slow, though, along to 42 from concord into pleasant hill and down to walnut creek. it has picked up a little bit, but there are some stop and go travel conditions, especially as you reach that interchange between 2 42 6.80 a little bit further southward still very slow as well. around 2.38, and 5.80, across the east bay around hayward san leandro and san lorenzo and a little bit further south from there. it's also very slow as you're making your way up and down the east bay shoreline trying to get on to 92 south bay commute has also been affected by just so many people getting back onto the roads and one o one has actually seen a few collisions across the south bay that have resulted in some delays and travel. 41 minutes from san jose to menlo park
8:50 am
