four's. catherine heenan is here to tell us what she said about that today, catherine. yeah, mayor schaff was with the governor when he signed off on the program this week. >> she feels strongly it is very badly needed and says for years she has heard from families who have loved ones out on the streets who are refusing to get help for mental illness. as for what the mayor sees in her own city. she says the statistics are troubling and staggered. >> the current state of affairs on our street is a part. i had more than 4,000 ambulance transports to psychiatric hospitals in a 12 month period. and more than 100 of those people. what transported more than stick times and that same year that is ineffective and inhumane. we are sick of the sickness and this is really an opportunity to kind of reinvent this system from the ground up mental health has been neglected for far too long. we see it on our streets. we feel it in our
hearts because these are people's children. >> the county will not be one of the first 7 california counties to implement the care court program. but she says oakland can and will begin getting ready for it. the mayor says it could be roughly 2 years before it is in place. there. pam and ken, thanks, catherine. >> let's check on our 4 zone weather forecast. a live look outside at the golden gate bridge where the weather looks pretty calm. but as they say in the world of weather, things are going to be changing, lawrence. yes, and maybe for the good boy. you know, we get a nice early storm. >> in here early in the before fire season really peaks. that would be tremendous help. and that's the real possibility outside today. we have some clouds early on that patchy fog kind of breaking up as we head for the afternoon lingering along the coastline still. but temperatures staying cooler than normal around the bay area. after that record breaking heat last week. and i think now we start talking about rain but out the
door right now. we do have a couple patches of fog that moved inside the bay. the temperatures, not all that bad. you got 69 in san jose. still 65 degrees in hayward, 62 breezy in half moon bay, 66 in 7 tail. 71 still warm in. conquer. 71 a nap and 73 degrees in fairfield. so some nice weather out there right now. but we're watching the storm system very closely. this is the beginning of the rainmaker, putting itself together, just making its way across the aleutians into the gulf of alaska. so it's got a little ways to go before it gets here. the start of pain on that system moving through as early as late saturday night now into sunday. so the timing on that has moved up quite a bit. still blustery around the bay area this afternoon with some wind gusts over 2030 miles an hour. want to show you the forecast model for the upcoming storm system as we head through time here you've got the clouds moving through. breaking up in the afternoon, clearing out your skies and bring some sunshine around as we get into saturday afternoon, things begin to change. looking a little more ominous. those clouds start to roll in late in the day. and
then as we head in towards saturday night here comes rolling along the coastline. and there you go. if this works out like this and this is another one of our computer models and they're all start to come together. we're going to see a significant amount of rain. the tricky part of the storm system is really the core of this low. if this low actually doesn't come expected by the computer models, maybe stays 30 miles off the coastline. we may not see that much rain at all. right now it is showing a whole lot of rain rolling to the bay area. fact, look at this. not only here but around the state of this happens. we, of course, with the mosquito fire. other fires burning the dutch, a fire continuing to burn? well, we could see maybe an inch of rain in those locations around that fire. that would be a tremendous help to firefighters there really for the whole fire season as it looks like, we're going to see a lot of that rain moving on through. so keeping our fingers crossed for the storm system. hopefully it all works out right now. it's all looking good on paper, but it all has to come together this weekend for it to happen. all right across i think. thank. thank you. bay area's kicking off hispanic heritage month celebrations from september 15th to october 15th.
