4:16 pm
several inches a possibility in the north bay that going into sunday and pulls in all this sub tropical moisture that narrow band of subtropical moisture, the atmospheric river. we call it the advisories in place for the bay area, shades of green and that shade of tan. they're two different advisories to talk about in the north bay. it is for a flash flood watch that will get in the overnight hours and go all the way until sunday night for the burn sounds napa county as well as sonoma county. for the santa cruz mountains as well, a flash flood watch that will start at one o'clock in the afternoon on sunday and go until 11 o'clock again for the burn zone areas over the santa cruz mountains. and then this stretch of solano county through the cartoons and the delta includes folio includes beneath to include some of our small communities right in here. this is a flood watch that will begin late saturday night and last into monday. as far as the wind advisory. take a look at how widespread it is. it includes everybody from the coast all the way into the sacramento valley there, it will be four
4:17 pm
sunday, starting at five o'clock in the morning lasting into the evening hours. the winds could reach anywhere from 40, 45, mph and most lower elevation areas and our hills could see winds gusting to 55. even 60. here's a brief look at when we do expect some of that rain to arrive tomorrow morning. mostly cloudy but mainly dry we get into the afternoon a few scattered showers we get into the early evening hours. a few scattered showers with that rain moving in late night, and there's a look at sunday morning. that's when the big event is expected to happen on sunday. better details on what you can expect for the weekend and the extended forecast coming up. all right. thanks we look forward to it as she said, with a parade of storms having already passed through northern california and more on tap for the weekend, there is hope the rain could end fire season, but of course, there's always concerns about flooding and mudslides for more on the impacts of the rain. we're joined by cal fire deputy chief jonathan cox. jonathan always appreciate your time. let's start with the good news calendar. estrada fires fully
4:18 pm
contained how much did that wet weather help and big picture? what is the rain mean for fire season? yes, it's a great question. happy to be here. really the importance of this rain can't be overstated for the drought that we've experienced for the last five years across california. the 100% containment on the calle door is a client. great example of just how beneficial it is. right now. what we're looking down is kind of the good side is fire season is likely to slow significantly. the downside is we're looking at a serious amount of precipitation over some very recent burn stars, which is always concerning to us. jonathan that's perfect for my next question. no transition time between the fires and the atmospheric river that rosemary is talking about. how concerned are you about mudslides, debris flow and what are you doing to prepare? yeah, so one of the things that we always do is at the end of a fire. we actually go in and do an assessment and actually try to, uh, going with geologists and ecologists
4:19 pm
hydrologists and figure out what the most vulnerable areas are of the burn scar. that includes the severity of how the soils burned. how stable the watersheds are, and those emergency reports come out for each fire. so right now across northern california most counties that have had these large fires, including in the various santa cruz, san mateo, in the north day. they're all pulling out those plans and really looking at where do we have the highest potential for debris flow and what are the downstream impacts of that if you have the ear of people that were in the salad or fire, burn, scar and even some of santa cruz mountains? what do you advise them as they watch these storms roll in. yeah. so unlike fire, these debris flows can be highly unpredictable. it's not. it's not something that's an exact science. the one thing that we always say is be ready to go. um and please, please adhere to warnings. the alert and warnings are even more important during these types of storms because the conditions can change so quickly. the second thing is all the normal precautionary
4:20 pm
measures have food and water. prepare for power outages. fuel up your car. check on your neighbors. if you lose power, or you start to lose services evacuate before the official evacuation orders are called for. i do know that across the barrier where we've had these burn scars. there's concern about the debris flows, and i really think it's going to come down to just the rate of precipitation we get on sunday and monday as to how widespread any potential slides are going to be, john, we've got a little bit of time left. but as we sort of take a big picture, look at this. more than 2.5 million acres have burned statewide. can you compare this fire season so far to what we saw last year? yeah, you know, unfortunately, it just seems to be worse. you're over your last year we saw a lot of acreage burned were over four million acres last year. a lot of that had to do with the fact we had a large lightning storm come through. this year or just over two million acres, but some pretty significant fires, including the dixie fire, which was the largest fire in our state's history, so acreage wise, not as many acres burned across the state. but by all
4:21 pm
means another damaging fire season, especially for some critical watersheds, small towns and really, you know, we're not out of the woods in southern california. it's still warm down there, and they're not expecting the same level of rain that we're going to get something to watch. cal fire deputy chief jonathan cox we always appreciate your time, sir. appreciate the work of all of our first responders. thank you. he went from being a democratic presidential candidate to starting his own party coming up. we'll hear from andrew yang about what his new forward party is all about, and here's a look at what's coming up tonight. right here on ktvu. it is all about wrestling. w w e friday night smackdown starts at eight. followed by the 10 and 11 followed by the 10 and 11 o'clock news. don't worry, ma. we'll be there soon.

4:23 pm
now andrew yang has left the democratic party and announced the formation of his new forward political party for more now we are joined by alex michaelson, host of the issue
4:24 pm
is that airs right here on ktvu and alexey recently sat down with yang. yeah andrew yang to t this new political party called forward, uh encouraging people to join the party but also saying that he could have forward members that are also democrats are also republicans. it's a series of changes to try to make it less polarized in the political world. and more focused on moderation and bringing people together. here's some of what he told me on why he chose to leave the party. board is an inclusive popular movement and the mechanics right now of our politics. make it such that if you were to change your party registration, you might lose your ability to participate in your local elections were also practical. you know, i'm the math guy. this is a movement of reasonable nous and reason to try and get our heads up, try and get beyond the partisan back and forth. that's making
4:25 pm
us more angry, more frustrated, and it's dehumanizing our fellow americans who might be on the other side of a particular issue. so we'll talk about that. we also have some fun with andrew yang. he likes to have some fun these basketball player and so we brought a basketball hoop into our studio, and he hopes with me. so you got to tune in sunday to check that out. and speaking of sports, the story that i really care about the last time that we talked a couple weeks ago, it was when the dodgers and giants were playing each other, and we made a bet that whoever lost that would have to wear the other team's outfits. so i've got my dodger hat. i'm wearing my blue and this is when alex savage's beautiful hair gets to be covered up for the you know the first time that's the most feel, but i'm a man of my word. right and we made a bet here and my giants couldn't pull it off. yeah it's a little little tight hurts my head a little bit.
4:26 pm

4:27 pm
the last game with the big offensive explosion, so we're rooting for the dodgers to be in the world series. and of course ktvu is the home of the world series all next week. hopefully for our part, the dodgers will be in it and alex looks great. and i hope. no okay, well, i hope greg lee takes lots of pictures of you in that house. all right, well, completely well, like, yeah, go dodgers, all right? and of course, reminder. the issue is ares. with alex michaelson more of his interview with andrew yang coming up this sunday, keep the promo up there as i fix my hair here and get this dodgers cap off and there you go. the issue is there's this sunday, right here on ktvu 5 30. in the morning. a man of his word. alright, covid-19 booster shots from madonna and johnson and johnson now available. up next to his eligible plus new trial data on

4:31 pm
soon line up to get a covid-19 vaccine. pfizer announcing kid sized doses of its formula are more than 90% effective in children. 5 to 11 years old. in a study of about 2000 children, there were only three covid cases among the group that received the vaccine. an fda advisory panel will review the data next week more than 25,000, pediatricians and primary care providers have signed up to distribute the shots, a pediatrician and it paid parent and a child, not a government, not a mandate because this is a sensitive issue, and pediatricians are very good at this. so i'm hearing smaller needles. i like that idea. meanwhile the white house says more than 120 million americans will become eligible for covid boosters in the coming months. yesterday the cdc approved boosters for adults who got johnson and johnson's vaccine and a select group of moderna recipients. booster eligible people now have the option to
4:32 pm
get a new dose of any approved vaccine, regardless of the one they initially received. mixing matching has been shown to have more robust immune response. in a richer immune response, cdc director rochelle walensky says the definition of fully vaccinated. may eventually change to take boosters into account right now. we don't have booster eligibility for all people currently, so we are going to we have not yet changed the definition of fully vaccinated. um we will continue to look at this. cdc data show about 64 million vaccine eligible americans still have not gotten there. first covid shot. in atlanta. john siri fox news. bay area. health officials are urging all eligible people to go get their booster shots as soon as they can. in santa clara county clinics are taking appointments for those extra doses. the vaccines are also available at five mass vaccination sites, including the santa clara county fairgrounds. those who are 65 older, and residents of long term care facilities are
4:33 pm
encouraged to get one as well as people, 18 and up who meet certain requirements. that large eligible group eligible group includes anyone who's 18 years and older and has an underlying medical condition. or anyone who's 18 and older and works in our lives in a setting where they may have increased risk of exposure to covid-19. the cdc also approved mixing vaccines. that means anyone who got a j and j shot at least two months ago can get a booster of any of the available vaccines. people who got pfizer and moderna doses have to be at least six months out. from their first dose. some of the biggest pharmacies in the u. s. are offering the moderna booster along with fighters shot, which was already approved. cbs says shots are available today at more than 9800 pharmacy locations for people 65 older and those with certain underlying medical conditions. right aids, walmart and walgreens are also offering
4:34 pm
madonna boosters sonoma county's health agencies, the latest in the bay area to ease its mask mandate, the county announced yesterday. people will no longer have to wear masks and such indoor settings as college classes, offices or religious gatherings. if everyone is fully vaccinated, and the change only applies to groups of 100 people or fewer who meet regularly in a location that is not open to the public. once again this year, health officials are raising concerns about the possibility of a twinned emmick when seasonal flu cases increase as covid-19 continues to circulate for more on what we can expect. as we head into flu season, we're joined by dr john schwartzberg. and infectious disease specialist at uc berkeley school of public health doctor schwartzberg greatly appreciate your time. as always. we heard the warnings last year about the possibility of a twin damage, but it didn't materialize. why do we think that this flu season might be different? yeah influence is very difficult to predict. but the reason we're
4:35 pm
pretty particularly worried about this season is because last year there was essentially no flu. very few people got exposed to the virus. and a lot of people who get exposed to it. don't get sick but get immunized from the virus so they would be immune coming into this year. as we didn't have very many cases at all last year, hardly any. nobody really got exposed to it. so everybody's coming into this year this flu season. very vulnerable. so. again there's nobody knows what's going to happen, but this could be a more serious flu season because of the reason i just stated. yes and also you look at the fact that last flu season we had more people wearing masks. there weren't as many schools that were open and people were doing less traveling. all of that has really changed in a big way. our society has really reopened and that could allow the flu to circulate. more more widely. i think that says something about how we're going to conduct ourselves over the next few months. wasn't that
4:36 pm
long ago. it was last november, december and january, when we had such a horrific time with covid, and, um, i think people need to be very careful over these next three months. in terms of contracting both influenza and covid. just be careful. what are the implications of a severe flu season coupled with the ongoing covid-19 pandemic? how could this potentially impact hospitals especially because you know, with covid? we're always focusing on on the hospitalizations and those serious cases. what are the potential implications in terms of our health care system? if we do have a twin dimmick that does materialize. right well, right now we have our hospitalizations at a high level, but not nearly as high as we had last january in december. add onto that would influence it does on an average year, maybe 25 to 30,000 excess deaths, much less several 100,000 hospitalizations, and
4:37 pm
you can see where the combination of a even average influenza season with the number of cases we're having right now. even here in california. could be a tipping point in terms of a bed available for you for either disease and a bed available for people with without covid, or influenza who've had a heart attack, for example. where are we going to have the beds, so it's critical. we prevent both of those diseases. immunization as you talked about the best way to protect yourself is to just get that flu shot there. readily available along with the covid-19 vaccine. that's also continues to be important, but is this year's flu vaccine a good match for the strains that are circulating? do we have a sense at this point? it looks like it, but you know, we compare it to the previous year. but last year we had so little flu both in the northern and southern hemisphere that. it does. it didn't inform us as well. but i think the chances are it will be a very good match. plus all the vaccines. all the influenza vaccines
4:38 pm

4:47 pm
moderate rain here, rosemary. but now on sunday night, this is the real deal. you're right, alex. this one is going to be a doozy. as we know in recent years. it's been more like november. this is been the earliest in the seasons in years, and not only that, but very strong storm coming our way as you've been hearing a lot lately, that word atmospheric river giving you a view over the bay area where late this afternoon and into the early evening, we are going to remain dry, in fact, breaking away to partly cloudy skies partly sunny conditions. getting into tomorrow afternoon and into the evening hours. things start to change. but here's the view from up above where the clouds are in place. we still have some moisture kind of dancing around. but the next system on its way in really doesn't arrive until saturday night into sunday, and right now, sunday looks like it's going to be the roughest, heavy rain strong wind we could see anywhere from. two inches of rainfall in areas over the south bay to eight inches of
4:48 pm
rainfall to our north north bay as well as the hills and here's a better look at some of the forecasted numbers here into the central bay will go anywhere from 2.5 to 3.5 inches. santa cruz mountains, 4 to 5.5. but into the north bay. this is where we are expected to see. most of the rainfall could see up to eight inches in our coastal hills. so with all that said, easy to understand why we have a flash flood watchbegins e saturday and for all areas by early sunday and will last the entire day, really not going to expire until late night. sunday and it includes the north bay. it includes the santa cruz mountains, all the burn zone areas from 2020, and it also includes areas near the solano county area, which is not a flash flood watch. but a flood advisory so to speak and going on on sunday as well. the wind advisory is widespread. it includes everybody winds are expected to just about 45 mph and in our hills, we could see those winds gusting to about 60 mph. and the c r. s to know
4:49 pm
expected a pile up here as well with the winter storm watch in place sunday night into monday night. some of our higher elevations could see three ft of snow. so this is all good news because we know we need it, but it's going to come really fast in the sense of a perhaps a 12 hour period. and that could create all that hazard that we just spoke about. here's the future cast model. when it comes to the timeline on this, you can see tomorrow morning. we're with grey skies, maybe a little bit of drizzle by late in the evening, though it begins to move in with sunday being the brunt of the moisture moving through. there's five a.m. and then as you notice we're already now into monday morning, the timestamp there reads and we're barely coming out. so we are looking at scattered showers for monday may be lasting into tuesday. but really, it's that sunday that we are going to become drenched 56 degrees tomorrow morning under mostly cloudy skies and a bit of drizzle in san francisco, perhaps 56 in concord, 58. over san jose, and then into the
4:50 pm
afternoon 64 in san francisco, mid upper sixties around the bay. mid upper sixties for inland east bay take a look at the north based 60 degrees the afternoon high in napa, so going to be a cool one going to be well below average as we get into the extended forecast, our temperatures don't budge a whole lot rolling through sunday monday. we do get into some warmer weather tuesday into wednesday, but again in the short term, it's really going to be at saturday night sunday and then into monday, where we'll be watching all that activity that's expected to arrive back to you. all right? we will keep track of it for sure. rosemary. thank you. well it's a staple in many dishes. and now three different types of onions are being recalled we'll tell you about the health concerns that prompted the cdc to take action. plus the san jose community service police officer has been suspended ahead of five how federal investigators say he threatened other officers in the line of duty. also ahead. we're learning more about the tragedy on the movie set involving actor alec baldwin that resulted in the death of the cinematographer. the movie's
