5:45 pm
bigger question is this $2000 check the house says they gave it the green light now we're waiting for and it's not clear how that will be if it is paid out you know what that means is that minus the $600 you're right. >>just kind of a mask and i think a lot of people really don't have the answers yet, but we'll see what george thinks about that and what kinds of questions people are asking their financial advisers think we're going to come back to georgia and a little bit ok we want to whether real quick before we come back to george. ok our producer says sir so let's govern aren't, yeah so. >>want to see some major to beginning of the new year looks like we've got a series of very powerful storms headed our way so. yeah, you know we'ee had the storms christmas day we had another round of rain overnight last night but not a whole lot of rain wanted to give you an idea of where we sit so far. year to date for some of our total so rain season beginning starting july first and here we go we've got 2 and half inches of rain so far in san francisco that is only 30% of normal only 19% of
5:46 pm
normal now at just under an inch of rain in san jose over an inch and a half in oakland that is only 24% of normal and santa rosa now you've got just over 4 inches of rain sounds good. but that's only 33% normal now i think we're to catch up a bit with the series of storms headed our way i roll the slow long-range model for all the way out until the middle of next week so the first week of the new year watch what happens with the rain you'll a dynamic colors really start spread out late and then you see all the colors really becoming rich outside look nor scale look at some place in the models trying to pick up on for 5 plus inches of rain between now and about wednesday of next week in some spots, the urban areas yet to 3 inches plus you see in napa over so for over 4 inches rain before and a half inches of rain so long way to go that is still way out there in the forecast but we're looking at a significant series storms possibly affected the bay area as we head in the few days and into next week, so yeah, looks like it is going to be a series of storms coming our way and then looks like things
5:47 pm
are want to start to get very active until the end of the year so that being said tomorrow doesn't look like a bad day we're going to see a nice sunny day around the bay area, sunny and bright temperatures up in the 50's and the 60's outside but after that things begin to change shipped. everything starts to change the clouds roll in slight chance of showers as we get into wednesday into thursday. i think the more significant rain comes as we start this first weekend of the new year i thank you lauren all right center. so we have george net chetty from morgan stanley on the line with us now george good to see you. >>we're talking about 2 different stimulus checks of $600 check that's a go. that's that's a done deal when we'll be able get that check. >>well we've expected to get that checked pretty quickly probably about the middle of january would be pretty fast for you know to get a mask distribution of a $600 out to everybody so that the $600 for each adult and the children have to raise from $500 to $600 so feel before you get about not as much as people
5:48 pm
need. but we're going to get this thing out there get it started and then perhaps after january some time will be an additional bill flooded. >>your words saying a lot of unanswered questions charge if there is another check on they're talking about $2000. if that's a whole different some 2000 doors had minus the 600 i think it's confusing for a lot of people and what to expect it's it's actually it's actually my to 600. >>but believe me the spending on ball, $2500 was proposed by the democrats to the republicans 5 months ago. republicans would agree to it because they had the majority the democrats have backed off to 600 president trump was in on this on the beginning. but later changed his life or maybe political reasons. so $2000 is being proposed right now i think we you know you know expect the worst hope for the best going to get $62400 per family. so that's a go and we've got to get something started here we've got to get
5:49 pm
the unemployment benefits also going we're at the peak of the covid and so unemployment is really at its peak we're going to probably see probably million people unemployed in the next couple of weeks just because of everybody socially gathering and the amount of people getting covid that will cost more unemployment. so we need to percent unemployment gap and then hopefully that actually gets here and we get everybody back on track again. so george real quick tell me the effect this is going to have on the economy the people who really really need that 600 bucks we know they're going to spend it on the basics of trying to cover some rant. >>and food kinds of bills just to survive other people who have jobs. they're going have an extra 600 so you know how is this going to stimulate the economy if at all. >>this could have a significant effect on the economy. i mean this whole bill is 900 million dollars that's going to tricky late into the economy. people are going to spend it they're going to be fine things it's going to there's technical programs are going on here. so it's going make economy
5:50 pm
without that the 1st quarter gdp for 2021 will be flat or negative so this money coming into economy will help our gdp to be positive. if we get 2 negative quarters together that means we're going double dip recession. we want to avoid that. so this money is going help it's not enough, but it certainly be a bridge. 900 million dollars is a lot of money going into economy and that's going to be for individuals for small businesses for vaccines for transportation education rental assistance which is that they thing right 25 billion has been set aside for rental assistance for the sisters first people that are behind california is going to get 2 billion of those dollars to help with all the you know for for you know missing apartment payments for mortgage we'd estimate about 25 billion really in the economy that people are in the rears are behind and so getting that money out there state by state is going to help also.
