san andreas crystal springs reservoir. >> we filter 40 gallons of water and here for the 60 day shut down we are tweeting twice that amount. 85% of the water that flows out of san francisco and northern peninsula faucets is from yosemite and not for the next two months. that's because crews will be surveying and fixing the mountain tunnel. a 19 mile artery out of the reservoir this is a collapsing. >> we will have an assessment for the new tunnel and if we do periodic shut downs to do repairs and upgrades. >> this is the reservoir in yosemite and this is the portion of the tunnel where crews are doing inspections. the water is not flowing and typically it will flow to the bay area where it serves households. >> we have water in the reservoirs and customers will turn on the tap and they won't
notice a difference. the san francisco public utility commission has made upgrades to filters like these and half moon bay where 150 gallons an water. >> the distribution system is fine. >> will be pumped out to compensate for the loss. these are like glorified giant how powered filters. the inspection to the mountain tunnel is critical as it could take 270 days and cost 100 millions to fix. to replace it entirely would cost 620 million-dollars. the pipeline normally closes for maintenance for one month a year and the last time was in 1980 for a thorough inspection and things went smoothly. tara moriarty, fox 2 news. well we are right in the middle of a storm. let's bring in meteorologist bill martin. heavy rain that will continue.
>> it is evident. the rainfall rates, five minutes ago the national weather service issued a small stream flood advisory for the entirety of the bay. that's not severe not a flood warning like a river warning. but what he this are saying is the same thing. a lot of the standing water. you get rainfall rates over a quarter of an inch and there is what happens. the advisory in effect until midnight. you can check out the system. raining hard and the heaviest rain is right about now and tomorrow morning about 3:00 a.m. pardon me. so winter storm warning stays in effect and a winter break and breaks in the showers. a small stream advisory is up because we are anticipating this. here we are at moonlight. and you can see the band moving through. and this is significant. kind of like what just ran through. most of us sleeping.
you will hear it on the roof. at four a.m. it continues and let me go back. i what about to see something. this is -- yeah, 12:00 a.m. to the model is updated to four a.m. that took four hours for this thing to translate. that means it is not moving that fast. that means you wouldn't be hard to get a half-inch of rain and lingers to six a.m. to san jose and pushes off and your morning commute doesn't look back. the four a.m. commute and after that the heavy rain is done. the afternoon commute is there. that's good. basically the main event between now and four a.m. tomorrow morning. and then we get a few scattered showers and then we get to thursday morning and not bad, right? thursday afternoon. not bad. friday not bad and we get to saturday and sunday it is game on. it is heavy rain and big time storms this week. and those storms will get us if they transpire the way we anticipated as we take you
through the model forecast for five days. not much rain here. but watch what happens. saturday and sunday. watch how it doubles. somewhere between saturday and sunday it will get going. and this will most likely give us urban and small stream flood advisories most likely maybe some flood watches. certainly in the burn zones but i'm thinking that kind of rainfall if you double it like that, i think you might see some of the creeks come up a little bit. we will track it for you and mark will be here. that advisory the entire bay area for how long? >> until 11:45. the advisory is protocol. how concerned are you about santa cruz mountains. >> for the flood watch? >> yes. >> yeah, if that thing goes off, there will be issues up there. >> thank you, bill. mark is up next with sports. it looks like the raiders will start a rookie quarterback
injured. it looks like connor cook. >> if they win or lose in texas on saturday the raiders will make history because you know about connor cook, the first time in nfl history since the super bowl anyway that a rookie quarterback will make his first start in the nfl in a playoff game! it is unheard of. basically unprecedented. but i will tell you what, you had to like the way he comported himself. stats against denver when he came in for the injured matt mcgoin. he was 14 of 21 for 150 yards and threw one touchdown pass and picked off and when you consider the fact he didn't take a snap all season long until he was thrown into this thing, pretty impressive and i think he opened some eyes with the teammates as well. >> to come in and not play all year, he did a nice job going through the reads and kept it in the pocket and making some good throws. >> he will be out there getting
ready to call the play and he has his hands in his hand warmer and just like calling the plays with that swaggard so i feel very confident. like i said i have seen him since training camp. he has been out there working on his throw and trying to get better with coach jake and showing that he was prepared for this moment and his moment finally came. frank was asking me about connor cook. he wasn't available to the media. that's why you didn't hear from him. he will face the music tomorrow. the texans by the way, not exactly world beaters. the raiders have beaten them already and they have quarterback issues of their own. this guy brock osweiler will get the start. that was announced. he lost his starting job about 14 games into the season. he wasn't doing that well. and remember he had just signed a four-year 72 million-dollar contract that kind of took him away from denver and osweiler
has not been that impressive and the fans are not crazy about him in texas but he will get the start. some 49er news. one of the names keep popping up sean mcveigh will be interviewed. he is 30 years old and the youngest coach by far in the nfl and he is the grand son of john mcfay, former v p. how about pat mahon. the quarterback in texas tech and had a spectacular season and he gives up his senior year and the 6'3", 230-pound quarterback is a guy that might be of interest to the san francisco 49ers. he has been kind of predicted to be maybe a second-round pick but a guy certainly worth looking at. he has some skills. pat mahon out of texas tech. the warriors are off but they will take on portland tomorrow. kevin durant continues to shine
with the warriors and asked about how everybody is fitting in and who takes leadership rolls to the guys that fit in so well still get on each other on each and here is what he said. >> it is not about how it comes out, it is about the message sometimes and it may come out the wrong way. we got guys on the team that draymond green that you know the message is always good. he is so emotional and passionate that it may come off as he is getting on guys but it is said in the right way. i won't say what he says but coming to teammates and that is what we do and we enjoy someone helping you get better. that's what teammates do. i will shut up. and send it to you. thank you. see you later everyone. the coverage continues at 7 on
life. you never really know what's coming. life just... happens. just when you think you know where it's going, sfx: (ambulance sirens) it takes you someplace else. and that's why covered california is here. to help californians who need health insurance get it. so you'll be ready next time life happens. because it's more than just health care. it's life care.
wolowitz: so, how does this game work? i just throw it, like a real ball? yeah, just nice and easy, right over the plate. all right. you suck, wolowitz! what's that about? i'm heckling you. it's a beloved part of baseball. sheldon: he's right. and given that you're probably still waiting to be picked for a game that was played in fifth grade, i'm sure you do suck. hi. what's going on? baseball. okay, this is not what i meant when i said go outside and play. he's practicing. for what? the angels wanted an astronaut to throw out the first pitch, so guess who they called? what, you? really?! well, a lot of people who weren't available, but then me! that's so cool! congratulations. i guess that makes you the athlete of the group. well, not just him! may i remind you that you're talking to the seeker, beater, chaser and water boy of the third place griffith park quidditch team. i know.
