the city of oakland is cracking down on vietnam protesters and that has triggered a new round of demonstrations. city leaders

6:22 pm
degrees. 25 days in to the month of may we are running out of days to correct this. the average high has been 60.6 degrees. it's not even close. january more than a degree warmer in the afternoon than the month of may. that's because we have the onshore flow. we sit next to a very chilly ocean at least where we are and the flow coming off the ocean has been persistent for 24 consecutive days. you know what else has been consistent? all of this stormy weather. see how many rain delays the colorado rockies have had? or rain-outs? impacting the giants last week. this big trough of low pressure will not move east which will not allow this ridge to move east. that's the problem because we're kind of backed up in the atmosphere and we'll stay that way for two more days. flow from the ocean continues. cloudy drizzly in the morning. quite breezy in the afternoon. thursday the ridge gets close enough to limit the ocean influence. when the sun comes
6:23 pm
out, it gets warm if you don't have the onshore flow and by thursday we will not. livermore, 75. oakland, 65. but san francisco only 61 degrees. so what happens thursday? we hit 80 inland. close to 70 near the bay and gets even warmer on saturday and sunday before we cool down once a again. this has been a long stretch, 24 days we'll finally see an end to the super cold air by thursday. >> that will feel good. >> then you can go to the beach. >> then go to the beach where it will be about 62. but the water still cold. how about the high tech plan for an old bay area eyesore? >> and a four-hour wait for a cup of coffee. the bay area success story now sparking we showed these kids some items from a nearby store, whoa! but they didn't know they were all tobacco products. ooh this is cool. it smells like gum. yummy. this smells like strawberry. ooh, are these mints? with colorful packaging and fruit

6:26 pm
sears building. >> instead of just using their imagination or 2d renderings, possible tenants can use this. this 3d virtual reality head set that puts them right in the middle of a finished space. >> as you put these on, you're looking inside of a 360-degree environment of the space i'm sitting in. >> reporter: the space is uptown station and the head set is bringing it to life. no imagination required. just high tech. >> when you've got an old building like this and it's stripped down to the bare bones you need the best toy you can. >> reporter: this is what it looks like without the head set. >> basically fell in to disrepair over a number of years. >> reporter: workers are gutting the place and it's hard to picture the possibilities. an old school 2d rendering can't cut it. developer of lane partners wanted a wow factor to woo tech titans, allow ing them to quite literally see the light. >> they'll be cutting a huge

6:28 pm
angeles. last year blue bottle raised nearly $26 million to expand in to new markets. four hours. >> if i wait four hours for a cup of coffee, it's not going to be pretty. coming up in our next half hour the answer to our drought may be sitting in plain sight. but it comes with a $40 million price tag to start it up. the pros and cons of this expensive solution. >> oh, my god oh, my god. >> cars and homes swept away. record rains un leashed dangerous flooding in the south. the dramatic rescues and search for survivors. >> fighter jets scramble in to action. why the
6:29 pm
6:30 pm
6:31 pm
now at 6:30, a scramble across the state to save water but tonight one city is betting
6:32 pm
big on a solution sitting in plain sight. in this historic drought you can't help but notice california has plenty of salty ocean water. >> the problem is extracting that salt is very expensive. but one town is about to pay that price. >> reporter: opening these doors is like opening a time capsule. the computers with dual floppy drives say it all. >> this was built in response to the last drought. >> reporter: the desalization drought only ran for a few months. now we're in a record drought and desperate. >> it's tough because it's expensive and a big project. >> reporter: expensive as in $40 million to retrofit the plant. >> but you know what, no water is a lot worse than expensive water. >> reporter: the goal would be that the plant provide 30% of the city's water supply by fall of next year. ratepayers they'd see their bills go up $20 to $30 a month. >> reporter: part --
6:33 pm
>> part of the challenge is water has been too cheap. maybe the value of the water isn't appropriately priced. >> reporter: not everybody is sold on de-sal. >> the santa barbara channel is a very rich marine echo system. >> reporter: channel keeper says besides the brine that's discharged, the intake would harm marine life. the group would rather it be buried. >> if we were to have a subsurface intake which minimizes that mortality of marine life here in santa barbara, we'd be a lot less unhappy with it. >> reporter: the city believes it would do environmental damage. its plan is to replace the filter screen at the end of the pipe to prevent all but the smallest particles from enter ing the pipeline. >> in addition to $40 million to start up the plant it's going to cost $5 million a year to operate it. the city hopes to award a construction contract
