news. the family was able to recover that blanket and the little cat you see there. they were dumped in the in the east bay grizzly peak boulevard between skyline and centennial drive in oakland will be closed all day on the fourth of july. sky 7 was over that area today. the goal is safety, of course, to prevent fires, crowds and illegal parking at lookout points. there will also be several street closures around lake merritt including parts of grand avenue and lakeshore avenue. these streets will be closed all day saturday and sunday, the 4th. head to our website when you have a moment for a list of events on the fourth of july holiday, www.abc7news.com. the question is what will the weather be like fog will
make it sizzle, something like that? >> i think. so it's going to be colored clouds for some fireworks shows, especially in places like san francisco where we have the fog. it's part of our tradition in july. let me show you a time lapse now from our east bay hills camera. you can see the deep marine layer tonight as the sun was getting ready to set. it's about 2,000 feet deep and it was rolling in, a live doppler 7 now showing you pretty good push all the way into the east bay as you will notice, the gray skies, also sili just over moon bay, six miles in petaluma and eight miles in santa rosa. so be careful tomorrow morning. temperatures right now anywhere from the 50s to the 70s. our ocean temperature, about mid-50s. i want to show you a view from our camera, just gray skies in san francisco. this is good because the measurable drizzle this morning and again tomorrow morning helps to add a little more moisture to the fuels which
helps to keep our fire danger down, especially when we're in an exceptional to extreme drought. low clouds, fog and patchy morning drizzle, foggy areas for the fourth ofreworkal temperatures through the holiday weekend. so really overall weather looks nice, combination of fog and sun for your fourth of july at noontime, 50s to 70s, a mild afternoon and you will notice that there will be some fog around at 9:00. definitely grab the extra layer because it does cool off pretty quickly. let's look at your fireworks forecast for san francisco. you will notice the gray skies, fog right aroundsontparts of th bay, but well inland clear skies are expected. so if you are checking out the fireworks while inland, should be a spectacular show. here's a look at temperatures. at 9:30 you're looking at anywhere from the upper 50s to the mid-60s in places like livermore. hopefully mother nature cooperates for all the shows that are still taking place in this pandemic. hour-by-hour forecast, you will notice some patchy drizzle
along the coastline, plenty of fog at 5 a.m. towards afternoon a few high clouds move, in but the fog never budges sitting near the coastline all day, 50s and 60s in the morning, drizzle and fog and tomorrow afternoon 62 in half moon bay all the way to 88 in antioch, so breezy right near the coast, warm inland, but nowhere near e exd st a couple of weeks ago. so the extreme heat stays away. the accuweather seven-day forecast, drizzly foggy morning, a mix of fog and sun for your saturday. still some drizzle. it's going to be a fine fourth of july, low 60s to mid-80s and we'll go with the mild to warm pattern inland monday through thursday right along the coastline in the 60s. so overal helping to make san francisco
the greenest big city in america. but that's not all you'll find here. there are hundreds of good-paying jobs, with most new workers hired from bayview-hunter's point. we don't just work at recology, we own it, creating opportunity and a better planet. now, that's making a difference. well, geico's 85 years isn't just about time, you know. it means experience. i mean, put it this way. if i told you i'd been jarring raspberry preserves for 85 years, what would you think?
