localized rains, but the huge atmospheric river storms that hit mount tam late last year and early this year. it's unusual, but it's great. smells good. looks good. all the animals are really happy. birds are great. i'm glad to hear that, too, that the wildlife will definitely helped to um the more water for them. the better to this is in stark contrast to the rest of the bay area and the state, california six big reservoirs shasta oroville, trinity, st louis, new melanie's, and don pedro historically should be at their normal end of summer average of 56% full. instead they stand at a poultry 33. lake sonoma, about 60 miles north of mount tam is only 30% full when it should be 54 like comanche, a major east bay mud reservoir in the sierra foothills should be almost 80% full instead of its current 48% and leak. false, um, less than 40% full should be 74
6:43 pm
. if there's any negative to this at all. it is simply that some folks may take this for granted. and taking water for granted and california anywhere in california is never a good idea. conservation has been huge in marin county. uh you know, i think the average citizen is really helping out with that. and our mwd directors are really helping out. um and the young kids right now in the high schools, they're really into conservation and everything. beautiful yeah, like i said, the more water we get, the better. we really need it. get us out of this drought. the current national drought map puts more than 95% of california and severe extreme or exceptional drought, making marin all that more remarkable. tom baker, ktvu fox two news. some lightning strikes out towards discovery bay will look at that scattered showers as you can see behind me not here but east of the barrier proper in our communities, but not in the central bay. i'll be

6:48 pm
struck, although dream force was back last year between 2500 people attended in person this year will see considerably more visitors they're going to have over 40,000 people here in san francisco for dream force, and they're going to these people going to be staying in hotels going to restaurants, shopping going to attractions and museums. it's really the kind of economic jolt that we needed, alex bastian from the hotel council of san francisco, says the city's hotels are filling up , including the city's largest hotel, the hilton. which is fully occupied. that means that we have a lot more people visiting. we have restaurants that are going to be full. we have coffee shops that are going to be blossoming. all of us do well when the city does well on the tourism front, sueno is just a few blocks away from where dream force will unfold. and sylvia sofer says the return of 40,000 visitors means the restaurant is booked. that means chefs and wait staff vendors and florists all get a boost from the conference. the restaurant for three days, so it's huge.
6:49 pm
you know, it's a big, big celebration here. as you see, you know, there's a lot of flowers and things have been stalled right now, so it's gonna be a huge event. the city's hospitality industry hopes dreams force signals the beginning of return of regular large scale conventions. for now , all eyes in the convention industry are on san francisco convention looks at going to a city they want to see how other conventions have performed in the city how the city's perform , so it's really an important piece of our business strategy to make sure that these conventions these big conventions when they come to san francisco go off well force officially gets underway tuesday through thursday. meanwhile, salesforce ceo marc benioff announced $25 million in new grants to support school districts and education nonprofits across the country and right here in the bay area with schools in oakland and san francisco receiving funds in san francisco, christien kafton ktvu, fox two news all right, a little bit of wild weather going
6:50 pm
on just east of here, part of the bay area, but most of us two thirds of us aren't saying much of anything except a few clouds. as you look out, mount diablo and you look out in the distance here does look a little tumultuous and this kind of just pretty sure we're kind of that's true discovery bay over there, and that's where there are active thunderstorms in such so here's the this is mount diablo! right on this map. it's right about here and that arrow tip and then that's what we were looking back at over here. and so those are lightning hits in the last few minutes or so, and you can see discovery bay into two gold and those areas and then we got more activity up towards clear lake and lake county lightning strikes up there up towards you, kaya as well so unstable, fairly volatile air mass continuing to trigger off activity in the foothills. they're getting a ton of rain up there. they've had a few lightning bumps as well. but just heavy rainfall, which is on the, um mosquito fire is huge up there between barrett grass valley and plaster ville that area that zone is getting hammered with rain. concerns for
6:51 pm
debris flows obviously and things like that, but i think that for uh the idea of pushing this fire out far outweighs the concern for a debris flow truthfully, and so with that that was the model. i just showed you. i want you to see that low wants to hang offshore. this is the low right here, young. we don't get him that much where they just hang off their like this. this system. it should start to rotate here in a minute. let's see. but this system has just been there, and it's going to stay there through tomorrow and through, um part of the morning on wednesday, so tuesday into wednesday and you can see most of the activity is to the east of us was as we showed you on the on the current rate ourselves. tomorrow possibility of a thunderstorm in the bay area just depends where that low goes, if it shifts a little bit west or degree or two east. of where those, uh those impulses will slide through. so what do you do tomorrow? kind of what you did today. tomorrow will be a lot like today i suspect and the potential for a thunderstorm still exists. this is the forecast model and you see all the clouds pushing up kind of a partly cloudy mostly cloudy day is what they're
6:52 pm
saying. the models, saying, i'm not sure that's the case, but definitely a chance for more scattered showers tomorrow with highs in the seventies kind of mild weather, and then just a nice looking forecast, but i love getting this rain in earlier, you know, and i think the folks up in forest hill and up in the foothills and just the smoke being gone is such a huge relief for many, and this is helping. there's more showers on the way tomorrow a lot like what we had today. all right, bill. thank you coming up here in sports with trey lance out for the season, jimmy garoppolo back as the niners starting quarterback joe fonzi in studio. to take a look at jimmy jazz return
