6:08 pm
existing facility on hedding street. the estimated price tag is $280 million. the board of supervisors is hoping $80 million of that will come from state funding. according to the county, the new jail would span 325,000 square feet. it would have 815 medium to high security risk beds. more space would be reserved for inmates with serious psychiatric distowards and addictions and more medical space to cut done on transportation cost to and from the hospital. the santa clara board of supervisors is weighing a plan to preserve part of the county's lesser known past. kpix 5's devin fehely tells us long before sillicon valley became what it is today, it of course had a very strong agricultural industry. devin? >> reporter: that's right. this farm has been operated by the same family for a century. and the board of supervisors is trying to figure out a way to

on that class 1 soil that the county board of supervisors since the 1970s has done a great job in trying to protect. >> reporter: the challenge for the county is to find a way to come up with money to buy family farms either preserving them as open space or for agriculture. for alice, however, the question is simple. she doesn't want to leave the home or the land she loves. >> i don't know, i mean, right now, i just -- i don't want to move. >> reporter: so the family farm here is roughly 37 acres. if you do the math, that $2 million an acre offer comes out to a whopping $75 million. now, alice says the answer was simple. it was no. but you can imagine a time when the timing and the money is right. in san jose, devin fehely, kpix 5. >> a lot of money but most agricultural land could not be developed without a change in zoning first. several cars crashed after a gravel truck overturned in san francisco today. the accident happened in the outer richmond right near a construction site.

6:31 pm
growl. emily turner takes us through where you can and cannot go with your dog especially off leash. >> reporter: there's a whole set of maps to explain it. probably the biggest and most obvious change is where i am right here which is east beach at crissy field. right now you can have your dogs off leash running around on the beach but if these rules go through, you won't be able to have dogs here at all. >> this regulation is a setup for failure and we'll challenge it. >> reporter: the dog debate is about common ground first finding it then dividing it up. it's a reduction of areas for dogs in the area. >> it's not just great disappoint but it's -- it's very disturbing. >> reporter: martha walters with the crissy field dog group is not happy about the changes. in fact, few dog owners are. but park spokesman howard leavitt says it's also had to account for people who don't want dogs when making the rules in order to keep the park accessible to everyone. >> we have to bear in mind the
6:32 pm
spectrum of uses at the same time as we have to protect park resources. >> reporter: the problem is those different points of view want access to the same spot. those spots will see the biggest changes. at crissy field off leash areas which are in yellow on the map have been reduced to central beach and a portion of the airfield. blue is the on leash area. only 40% of fort funston will be off leash and several other beaches like muir beach are from off leash to on leash only. the changes leave the gdnra as the most dog-friendly of the national parks but they also create enemies. both sides agree that the pursuit of a compromise might end with a lawsuit. >> we feel that this plan is actually quite dog-friendly but it also reflects the needs and viewpoints of those who want to come to the park for an experience without a dog. >> reporter: so whatever your viewpoint, if you would like to express it on these new rules you're more than welcome to. starting tomorrow there is a 60-
6:33 pm

we miss you. hope you're doing great. >> very talented. so talented, right? >> very talented. she is awesome. >> 71 degrees in brentwood today. checking in with our kpix 5 weather watchers, comfortable stuff. right in that upper 60s to mid- 70s fold. we had 75 in joe's backyard in san jose. rafael in santa rosa reports in 75 degrees. darrell in alameda 69. peggy in petaluma 70 degrees, upper 60s in orinda, bill moon low 70s for lee gray in napa and mid-70s for dana in novato. everybody right in that comfort zone. this time of year we don't get big microclimate spreads. we'll save that are to summertime. still an incredibly comfortable evening, as well. concord 65. san francisco 63. san jose 62. snow no rainfall. nords will there be any for the next couple of days. a tiny rain chance coming up on friday. so where is that rain? we have been talking about this ridge of high pressure taking the storm and sending them to the north. i wanted to put some numbers behind what i have been talking about for the past couple of weeks. and here they are. and it's pretty profound.
6:47 pm
relative to average for the water year los angeles is sitting at 54%. that's absolutely not what they expected when they heard of a very strong el nino. san francisco the bay area we are doing better but not where we thought we would be. 85% of average rainfall. continue to the north, the numbers continue to climb. redding 101% of average. we get into the 120s and 130s in oregon look at seattle 153% of average. the rain is there. this ridge many scholars will be looking at why this ridge is here during a very strong el nino but it is here. it is blocking the rain. it is being sent to our north, unfortunately. we are hoping that that ridge moves come march. oakland tonight 47 degrees. san jose 45. napa 42 degrees. watch out if you are heading to the beach. i know you're going to want to head to the beach with temperatures in the low 70s. waves will be building 11 to 14 feet. those swells getting higher and stronger with a high risk of rip currents tomorrow. high surf advisory is in effect for all the daylight hours tomorrow. so we just talked about that thing that's been happening over the past month with the storms being blocked to the north. well, guess what's happening
6:48 pm
right now. there's a ridge to our south which is blocking the rain and sending it to the north places like june i don't, alaska, above average -- juno, alaska, above average, seattle, portland, eugene, above average. this ridge needs to move if we want to get back above average. toward friday the ridge slides to the south and rain makes it into far northern california. it's important if it rains around here. it's much more important if it rains near our two biggest reservoirs, oroville and shastaville and it will over the weekend. they will get a couple of different storms moving three. we'll probably miss out on the rainfall except for the north bay coming up on friday. so we're clear tonight, chilly away from the water. upper 30s again. sunny and warm for the next two days. tomorrow and thursday well above average with a 20% chance of showers in the north bay on friday. high temperatures tomorrow 70s. napa 72. fremont 72. mountain view 72. vallejo 70. i don't know what your personal comfort zone is. but i'm guessing it's pretty
6:49 pm
close to those numbers. concord 69 and pacifica 67 so pleasant. friday chance of showers for the north bay. cooler weather over the weekend 60s. another tiny chance of showers coming up on sunday before the sunshine returns next monday and next tuesday. no big storms yet. big sports guy dennis o'donnell coming up next with the giants. ,, ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

who was on my flight this morning? former 49er, current running back coach tom raffman so i asked him about chip kelly. he was on the way to the combine. he said he has been busy putting in his offense. i asked him about colin kaepernick and he said simply, he fits into the scheme. in scottsdale, vern glenn, kpix 5. >> thanks, vern. former players to chip kelly continue to speak out about their old boss. the offense was vanilla and never evolved. matthews also told 9news in denver he is impatient with certainly personality types even when they were blue chip talent. the broncos team i was on would have eaten chip alive. i don't think he could have handled the plethora of large personalities." kyrie irving left sunday's game in oklahoma city with what was
