food. water. internet. we need it to live. for all the streaming and the shopping and the newsing, but most of all... for the this. internet for one everyday simple price and no extra monthly fees. the final snow survey shows twice the water content of average. state officials are warning that as the weather warms up all that melting snow could lead to flooded rivers. some reservoirs, the levels have been lowered to handle what's expected to be heavy runoff. forecasters say the merced river could hit flood stage wednesday. we're joined by my droll gift frank gurke. tell us what you found up
4:15 pm
there. it's twice the level of average? >> well, certainly close thereto. i think it was 190% at the particular location that we measured today, which was phillips. that 190, 200% certainly tracks pretty closely with what we are seeing from the measurements that come in more or less continuously. and a lot of the manual snow course measurements that are being done are 150 up in terms of percent of their historical average. >> everybody's got to be happy about the level of snowpack but the concern is with the snow melting. how warm was it where you were, and did you see any signs of the melting beginning now in the sierra? >> well, you know, it's not the temperature that drives the melt. it's the direct solar
4:16 pm
radiation. but, yes, there is active melt going on. in fact, the snow course that we measured, the last point was underwater. not by much, but some. so we've definitely got some melting going on, particularly at these mid elevations. so far we haven't seen a really vigorous melt at the high elevations with the really big snowpacks that are in place up there. >> i know we've had these in years past. it's always a strange sight when it's sunny and warm and then you have rivers overflowing their banks, or in some cases levees breaking. it's been awhile since that's happened but it has occurred. i'm just wondering how well prepared do you think the state is to handle the runoff. are the reservoirs going to be ready and are the rivers going to be able to handle all this? >> well, it is something we really have been practicing for, if you will. we had this situation in 2005,
4:17 pm
and again in 2011. the snowpack is tracking very closely with what we had on the ground back then. so we've been working with all of the reservoir operators and are in very close communication to make sure that things are coordinated and try to minimize those problems. now, some things are unavoid along, such as the merced river where it goes through yosemite. there is no controls. when it starts to melt in a big year, yeah, some of the low lying facilities are going to be flooded. but where we do have reservoirs and the ability to control the runoff, then we're certainly expecting that we'll be able to handle it, but it will depend on what remains the rest of the
4:18 pm
season. >> frank gerhke, the hydrologist giving us the very latest on the conditions there. we are expecting high water as the snow melts. let's get a check on our forecast. rose marks i just flew in today and it was so beautiful to see that san francisco sunshine. kind of rare. >> i agree. a lot of beautiful views around the bay area with wall-to-wall sunshine today. here is another one for you where the blue skies, rain today, a lot of sunshine out there. temperatures notably warmer today as well. in fact, a taste of summer going on around the bay area. before we move on, though, let's take a some of the numbers released when it comes to the snowpack, in case you're curious from the north central and southern portions of the statement anywhere from 180% to 20% of average there. so that will be the last survey of the season. giving awe view of the temperatures, what we're seeing outside now, a lot of 80s for
4:19 pm
our inland cities. 88 in brentwood, 89 in con cord. these numbers have cooled just slightly. some of us hit the low 90s today. 74 in the city of san francisco. a beautiful day in san francisco. warm in areas of mountain view. 87 at this hour and 86 for san jose. upper 70s, low 80s this afternoon along the east bay shoreline. 24-hour temperature change shows you just how much warmer we are than 24 hours ago. by 5 concord, and to the north bay, 8 degrees warmer than yesterday. here's a look at what you can expect as far as getting into the wind. it's been very breezy at times especially about sfo, reporting a 24 miles per hour wind. mountain view, a gust to 21. hayward is sustained at 1. half moon bay gusting to 30. warm and breezy. we'll continue this pattern as we get into tuesday with temperatures back into the 70s at the coast, 80s around the

ruling is the amount of data that's allowed own a network. we could see slower speeds if the passes or doesn't pass. we could see blocking certain websites or certain traffic. we may be charged more from netflix or hulu in order to see their content simply because the isp's are charging more. >> more regulation, less regulation, doesn't that sum up republicans versus democrats on this. we'll have to see if this lands in the lapse of the supreme court. ryan, appreciate your insight. >> you're welcome. students marched for may day. this is part of a day of action for students, parents, and educators. the school's principal se says the goal is to help students feel like they can express themselves and any concerns they may have about what's going on politically in the world around them. the rally also took place at the new high land academy to
