an nbc bay area exclusive now, stephon clark's mother skroising her pain and anguish this evening after local and state prosecutors decline to press charges against the police officers who killed her son. protests have been nearly constant now for the past 48 hours in sacramento. last year, clark ran from police officers who were investigating reports of vandalism. clark's death was captured by body cameras, including the 20 rounds fired by officers who mistook his cell phone for a gun. both the county and state
6:15 pm
district attorney general have ruled the police shooting as justifiable. stephon clark's mother is stunned. >> for a moment i believe that my son would be that case because we stood for what was right from the beginning and we were heard. i believed for a moment that we would have justice. >> her son's death has sparked ongoing protests which have blocked traffic and even interrupted last night's city council meeting in sacramento. clark's family is asking for another week of peaceful protests leading up to the march 18th anniversary of his death. >> everyone counts. that is the ruling of a federal judge who sided with san jose in its lawsuit against the trump administration. the case is a legal showdown over the 2020 census. last year the administration announced the upcoming census would include a question on citizenship. the same day san jose filed a federal lawsuit which was later joined by california and other states. it claims the question is
6:16 pm
unconstitutional and would ultimately scare immigrants away from participating in the census. uncounted residents would lower the amount of federal dollars california gets for housing, education and other things like medical services. the mayor believes that was the administration's goal. >> there are certainly cynical elements operating in various political corners that want to use the census as a way to deprive some parts of the country from funding, to deprive other parts of the country from representation. >> mayor sam liccardo says the city intends to press the issue all the way to the supreme court if it has to. >> from tough guys on the ice to nice guys off of the ice, the sharks are pushing for a strict no bullying rule at bay area schools. sharky, the mascot, and former player douglas murray visited reid elementary in south san jose tonight. the kids were excited. the two spoke to children about the dangers of bullying. they presented the buddy bench,
6:17 pm
which will symbolize a no bully zone on campus. >> it's a cause that i believe in. and i think with social media and everything, it's very important to educate kids early. >> it is very important. the pizza factory, by the way, teamed up with the sharks for this event. >> well, it is a mix of crime fighting and technology that you'll only find right here in the bay area. a silicon valley police department is about to put a tesla on patrol. today our business tech reporter scott budman got a look at the car in the fremont fleet. it's quiet, it's fast, but it's also pricey. >> reporte black and white like you'd expect, but unmistakably a tesla model s. part of a fremont police department experiment to fight crime and pollution at the same time in a fast new package. >> acceleration is better in the electric vehicle. >> reporter: inside and out, this tesla is le a regular
6:18 pm
police car, but it's a lot quieter and doesn't use any gas. the main reason the p.d. expects to save money in the long run, even though the tesla costs about $20,000 more than other cars in the fleet. >> we consume about 30 to $35,000 in fuel, so you start to pencil out the math and it actually starts to work out a little bit. >> reporter: there's also less maintenance under the hood, and they hope enough range, about 260 miles per charge, to keep up with criminals. the model s will hit the road here in fremont ml give the pro and then see if they want to buy even more. >> i think that's why we're doing the pilot program itself, is to see where we would go from this, is to understand what types of efficiencies and costs and what types of benefits are there. >> reporter: an expensive but modern and carbon-freeway way fight crime. >> let's bring in scott and ask more questions.
6:19 pm
we have the gas issue, we have that. the way it's built will save money. the whole thing with the tesla, it's super fancy. it has all these bells and whistles, the auto pilot. are the police going to be chasing us on auto pilot? what do they expect to do with some of these features? >> it's the perfect question. no, they're not going to get the bells and whistles. they won't need them. they won't have auto pilot. they won't have the super high-speed ludicrous mode. they do want to cut costs because not everybody in the city is sold on this yet. $61,000 car. >> i'd like that car, too. prove over a certain amounf allright, okay. it's going to be just a yes >> with a little bit. sort of. thank you, scott. >> it is fancy. thanks, guys. would you believe skiing during the 4th of july weekend? yes, snow skiing. thanks to all our snow recently, it's going to happen. ishikawa valley announcing it will stay open through early july. it received 5 inches much new snow in the last 24 hours alone
6:20 pm
and nearly 600 inches so far this season. kirk redwood and heavenly announced they'll be staying open until at least late april. >> that's good. there's time for us. there's time. you've been skiing, but i haven't. >> we can go june and july. >> oh, man, i know. i can go next week. that wrob nice. >> let's go next week. >> i'll go with you. >> i have to get busy. we're going to have a little sunshine for you to enenjoy that. we have some snow coming our way as we head through the next 48 hours. les you can see another 10 inches at king vail. another 2 in pine. rather low again. blue canyon just above 5,000 feet. kirk wood 9. south lake tahoe at 3. that's your next two day snow total. the current snow pack average to date, 160% of normal. so at this point once we reach april 1st, i don't think there is anyway we would have a below average snow pack, so certainly
6:21 pm
great news for the drought. so, what about the california drought? let's take a look at the current data. this is live data coming in to us from the u.s. drought monitor. you can see it is abnormally dry in the northern part of the state and a little bit of drought down near the border, but 95, 97% of the state continues to remain drought-free right now. that's all due to the most recent rains over the past three to four weeks. what about right now? we're trying to shake this rainfall out of here. storm ranger mobile doppler radar still shows some scattered spotty light to moderate rainfall, keeping the roads slick tonight. you can see that's the case here across milpitas, sunny vail, campbell, san jose. i expect this picture to stay into place as we head through tomorrow morning. so again, some hit and miss activity, but by the time we hit tomorrow afternoon, we're starting to see this move to the south and then checksng window sunshine building in from the north bay down to the east bay. we'll talk about how long that sunshine lasts. stick around, my forecast at

tomorrow, no big sunshine for the afternoon. we keep the cloud cover lingering with us. temperatures going to stay on the cool side. not much of a difference either. cupertino at 50, gilroy at 52. you'll notice as we head through our microclimates, it's pretty much the same here across the cities. 355 in concord, 54 in danville, 53 in hayward. that's because we had our most recent storm system move in. it kind of levels everyone out and our microclimates don't have a chance to vary up too much. san francisco, there's your low 50s. and it looks very similar here to the north bay. 54 in santa rosa, also expecting 55 in novato. let's spend some time on my extended forecast. you want sunshine. i can hear you at home. friday we get sunshine building back in, little bitf clo cover. that's going to be the day to enjoy it. if you can manage a three-day weekend, have a good time there on friday. once we hit saturday, a little bit of a bump in the forecast. trace amounts to about 15/100 of
6:50 pm
an inch. spotty sunday, then after that dry weather. so nothing to cancel your plans over this weekend and that's the good news. we keep dry weather on monday's forecast. then once we hit tuesday, another rain chance trying to slide in here. then it looks like some sun into next wednesday. take note for the inland valley forecast. we're staying with these cold 30s to start all the way through saturday's forecast. and again the same rain forecast. if you're going up to the sierra also wanted to get this in there for you. just so you're prepared and you can see over the next two days. we're looking athest elevations. overall, i think it looks like some pretty good skiing weather, raj, best day to go up there is saturday. let's stay all next week. >> there we go, broadcasting live from north star. >> i got it approved. weather man approved, we're off. >> that's it, it's on. >> we're in. thanks, jeff. well, up next, an incredible and unusual journey here to the bay area for the bay area's latest first round draft pick.
