6:14 pm
am i supposed to help it? >> cross just graduated. she says she wanted to leave behind something meaningful and important. on the surface the numbers say there are a hiring surge going on in california and silicon valley. employment levels are reaching levels not seen since 2007. but getting a job might not be as simple as having a polished resume'. kpix 5's john ramos shows us why even some of the best candidates can't find a job. reporter: the headline is impressive. there are so many jobs in the bay area, that in the east bay they have actually set a new record. but don't tell that to dion albert who is walking the streets of berkeley with his resume' in hand. >> i go in there professionally suit and tie and at the end of the day it look like they just want to, um, just give me a runaround. >> reporter: at this job fair maria had been out of work for nearly a year. >> i'm very surprised. my background is in engineering. >> reporter: despite advanced education and experience, she has repeatedly been turned down

6:47 pm
month average is six-tenths of a degree above normal in celsius which puts up above the threshold for el nino. so today officially we are in an el nino weather pattern. now, where are we specifically this week? throw out the three-month average. significantly higher. as of today we are already in a moderate el nino. getting up there. this one right here is the el nino of record. 1997/1998. very wet here and southern california. that was 2.3 degrees celsius warmer than average. notice kind of heading in that dreck. not a guarantee of anything but all signs are pointing not just to an el nino which we're in but a pattern conducive for wetter-than-average winter in california. no guarantees. it's looking more promising. outdoors now where temperatures are in the 50s and 60s. oakland 59 degrees. san francisco 57. boy did it get cloudy and windy this afternoon. all we did was change wind
