to be a very, very busy fire season. allen, liz? >> ryan, thank you. well, one of the bay area's largest police departments doing some major damage control. >> yeah, kpix 5's kiet do on yet another allegation of misconduct against an officer. >> reporter: san jose police now in full damage control mode after a rough couple of weeks, being rocked by scandal after scandal. this latest one involves an officer who has now been arrested and charged with masturbating in front of two adult women while on duty in uniform. we have never seen this before. san jose police shooting their own video and providing it to the media, showing chief anthony motta escorting the officer out of the internal affairs office. they blurred his face. however, the d.a. released this mug shot and identified the officer as 32-year-old matthew dominguez, a 4-year veteran. he is charged with misdemeanor indecent exposure. the chief said last week when an officer violated the public's
6:05 pm
trust i would personally walk that officer out the door. today i did it. according to the criminal complaint, dominguez was at a home responding to a domestic disturbance, questioning a mother and her daughter when he allegedly began touching himself. the chief alluded to that case at a press conference last week, a press conference that was meant to talk about another officer misconduct involving drug use. >> i will not tolerate inappropriate behavior or criminal conduct. >> reporter: dominguez has been placed on standard paid administrative leave. the president of the san jose police officers association released a statement. "i am absolutely disgusted by this repugnant allegation that damages the reputation of our profession and department where 99% of san jose police officers serve honorably every single day. if this is true, the individual must be held accountable and he should never be allowed to be a police officer ever again." this is the fifth major scandal this year. in late april, a san jose police officer showed up to the kidnapping scene baby pparently

alcohol level nearly twice the limit dejon packer died of a fentanyl overdose. an officer was arrested for dui and crashing into another car in hayward. and today we learned an sjpd officer is on leave over allegations of trading a meth pipe for information. >> obviously, this is just the latest in what has become a drumbeat of serious transgressions by young officers in the san jose police department. >> reporter: mayor sam liccardo said they will begin negotiating with the union over increased drug and alcohol screening and the chief will announce changes in the coming day. >> these tend to be very young officers which tells me there may be something very seriously wrong with whatever we're doing around screening. and backgrounding, and we need to -- we need to figure that out. >> reporter: in san jose, kiet do, kpix 5. well, new developments in the kidnapping case involving a 3-month-old in san jose. more charges have been filed

6:10 pm
california's drought getting worse by the week. take a look at this two-week comparison. on the left, the latest report showing 59% of the state in red for extreme drought. compare that to about 40% last week shown on the right. and despite urgent calls to conserve, many communities are still not getting the message, because water use is up. >> but not everywhere. kpix 5's lynnivlen ramirez show
6:11 pm
>> reporter: in the first three months of the year, the santa clara valley water district says water use is up 30% compared to 2019 levels that is except for here in the city of milpitas. if you're looking for a community that knows how to turn the water off, a good place to start is big ben drive in milpitas. here you'll find many of the homes have already ditched their front lawns for good. they've been replaced by hardscapes or drought tolerant landscaping that requires very little water. and those homeowners who still have lawns are letting them brown. kathy shaw says it's a way of life on this street. >> we just had to cut down, just period, you know. it just was something thate needed to do. >> reporter: the shaws replaced their lawn with drought tolerant landscaping during one of the last droughts about a decade ago. it's on a drip system, uses less water, and is very low maintenance. >> we're just doing our part. >> reporter: but it all adds up to big savings. the valley water district's latest drought report shows
6:12 pm
milpitas is using practically the same amount of water this year as it did in 2019 when other communities are using much more. san jose is up 31%. morgan hill 46%, and los altos hills is up 119%. >> obviously, that's something we can't sustain. our water supplies are dwindling, and we need people to conserve water. >> so how is milpitas doing it? councilmember anthony phan says the city added its own rebates for relandscaping, wash water reserving. >> milpitas is going above and beyond. we're partnering with the water district and doubling the amount of rebates that residents can earn. >> reporter: phan says homeowners can save up to $5,000 on a project. he also says the city passed its own water restriction ordinances that allow for watering only three days a week. violators get warnings and/or citations. >> this is something that i
6:13 pm
think is unique in the region. >> reporter: later this month, valley water will consider adding so-called water police that will do enforcement actions for water wasters region wide. in milpitas, len ramirez, kpix 5. >> well you got turn off the spigot, which is what mother nature does this time of year. she has turned it off. >> right around the middle of may. >> she turned it off for too long, though. >> way too early. >> never really open id it up full blast. >> geez. >> wish we had a little in april to help with the short-term fire danger. but we don't have any rain chances for the next several days, which in the month of may is far from a shock. but we don't close the door on an outside chance of a couple of rain showers making their way towards us until around memorial day weekend. we've got a couple of weeks to go for that. let's take a look at the big picture pattern. it's passing clouds. but no rain headed our way any time soon. the storm track being nudged to the north by the building area of high pressure in the upper-levels of the atmosphere. it's also going to spell warmer temperatures for us. the same parade of storm systems
6:14 pm
that we've seen for the past several weeks is still going to be occurring. it's just not going to be aimed towards us. it's all going to be aimed towards the pacific northwest. the next hint of maybe a shower sneaking down towards the bay area isn't going to be until a week from today, and it is a whopping 10 to 20% chance, far from a guarantee that we're going to be seeing a sprinkle. but at least there is a chance far down the line in the extended data. we'll keep an eye on that, but i would not count on any rain for the foreseeable future. which means any change in the pollen count has to be with a change in wind direction, a different air mass moving into the bay area. that's going to happen on sunday with the passing dry cold front. so we're going to go from the medium high category on the warmest days tomorrow and saturday back down to medium category for sunday and monday. but until a chance of rain heads our way, we're basically going to be waiting on the pollen season to gradually come to an end for the pollen count to drop any further. looking outside right now, blue skies as we look to the southeast from salesforce tower. temperatures on the cool side. still 57 degrees in san francisco. that temperature has been locked in place for about the last five
6:15 pm
or six hours. the warm spots from in the mid-60s. 62346 santa rosa. 65 in concord. we're not going to see much fog developing tonight. the fog futurecast shows a little hint of it developing offshore as we go into tomorrow morning. maybe some fog trying to develop in the santa clara valley. it's not going to be a big issue for the friday morning commute. but fog developing along the coast by noon tomorrow. that's going have a better chance to make its way inland as we head through tomorrow night into saturday morning. looking at temperatures throughout the day tomorrow, we're going to start off in the mid- to upper 40s in most locations. some of the warmer spots near 50 degrees. the warming trend is going to be more noticeable tomorrow for inland parts of the bay area. not a surprise there. the onshore breeze still with us. it's part of a mod upr 60s aund t y. san inhe city and uppern thest bay. arm-up continues, mix of 70s and low 80s for most inland spots. temperatures around the bay a
6:16 pm
couple of degrees above average. dog walking forecast, this is an adorable picture. moxie the doxie who is ready to soak up the sunshine tomorrow. temperatures in orinda making it up into the mid-70s during the late afternoon hours. temperatures elsewhere are going to warm up even more than that. and the warming trend continues saturday. that's the warmest day in the seven-day forecast. and then we back down to near normal temperatures monday, tuesday and wednesday. a bit more of a cooldown for everybody on thursday with more clouds, and that outside chance of a shower. the warmest spots on saturday inland in the east bay and the north bay reaching up into the mid- to upper 80s. a couple of the usual hot spots could even approach 90 degrees. but it's going to be a one-day thing. dropping down the other side of the temperature roller coaster by sunday and monday. >> one and done? >> that's it. >> okay. we can handle that. >> thanks, paul. we have the cbs evening news coming up. >> here is norah o'donnell with the preview. >> good evening. the desperation tonight from parents as the baby formula shortage grows. the new action from the white
6:17 pm
house to get formula become on the shelves, and the important warning from doctors about what not to do when rationing your supply. that and all the day's headlines right here on the cbs evening news. straight ahead, the nfl season is out. they didn't go easy on the 49ers either. and the warriors, they've already done an about-face to last night. it's a focused friday for dub nation. and coming up on our streaming service, cbs news bay area, our state's primary election is just around the corner. we'll talk to kcbs political reporter about some of the key races to look out for.
