6:17 pm
we've had reports of wind early this morning. wind up in the oakland hills. winds are still out there, a northeast wind. it would be a fire danger wind in the summer. but it's just enough of a wind that it's allowing these temperatures to heat up the air, and it sinks. so it sinks 5,000 feet, it warms five degrees from whatever it was. so it's warming as it sinchts that's why these highs got to record level. 75 in san francisco. sfo was a tied record at 7 3. oakland at 81 degrees. that's the oakland museum. san jose 78. all the activity is out in the pacific. there's a lot going on out there. it's definitely plenty of moisture if we looked out here and just saw blue, then you would say, oh my gosh, where's el niƱo? it's out there. it's just not focused on us. if this would be focused on us, the latitude of this storm here would be pushing through, but what's happening here is the jet stream is doing this.
6:18 pm
so it's driving it up here. that's unfortunate for us. eventually this thing will break under the ridge and this stuff will be able to come through. but that is a very aggressive footprint out in the pacific. and not just for rain but we're seeing significant waves as we have really for the last two months being generated by these westerly -- these storms that are producing westerly swells. i think we could see, well, i mentioned earlier they're going to do the big wave classic on the north shore of hawaii. they're going to probably run that on wednesday because of those big swessments those same wednesday swells get here friday. i imagine mavericks would be a go but i think they're all going to be at the north shore of hawaii so they may not be able to get everybody over here in time. so it hits washington, then it hits here a couple days later. current temperatures outside are in the 70s. temperatures for tomorrow are in the 70s. yellows are 70s.
6:19 pm
everybody is being hit with big numbers tomorrow, just like today. might be a degree or two cooler, might be a degree or two warmer. just depends where you are. it's all the coast of california. not just california. it's beautiful everywhere. and this week is going to be a dry week which we've talked about. you are going to see temperatures like these tomorrow. not that cold overnight. not worried about frost and fog at this point because of the circulating winds that are dropping down, warming. but a dry, nice warm forecast as you go through the rest of this week. so, yeah, we haven't had one of these -- well, we did last week works this two-week dry period is definitely the first dry period we've seen, because october, it's been wet from october all the way through. hopefully something breaks through, julie, in answer to your question. right now i don't see anything but something could develop. >> you know what surprised me about the game? all last week we were talking about how the weather would be great, we would see these great aerials. i don't remember seeing -- well, they took the chopper up.
6:20 pm
cbs took the chopper up. >> i saw a couple of those, but i didn't see any blimp shots. >> you think with the weather being that great? at the beginning, but i didn't see them. >> not enough, because you could go wall to wall in that super bowl. >> you're right. i only saw those maybe three or four or five. >> all right, thanks, bill. >> recent rain has left bay area reservoirs in good shape but some of the state's biggest reservoirs still after long way to go. lake shasta is the state's largest resser viral. right now it is just over half full or 85 feet below the fill line. officials say they still need another 20 million acre feet of water to fill it up. unlike other reservoirs which depend on snow runoff, shasta depends on the rain. officials say it will take a few more years of average rainfall to catch up. >> we really depend on our average rainfall, which is about 62 inches of rain a year,
6:21 pm
which we haven't seen in about four or five years. >> the second largest reservoir is lake oroville. it's still below its historical average. the other big reservoirs are trinity lake, don pedro, and new melonas. the only exception is folsom, but it is a relatively small reservoir. coming up, more on the post- game super bowl stories. also, the warriors preparing to play without one of their players. mark is up next with sports.
