t makin its wand that's why it s warm. concord's got 95 degrees. in san francisco it is 64. cooler than the forecast high for today, because again, closer to the shoreline, marine layer is there and it's keeping things nice and mild. oh, look at this. still thunderstorms and that monsoonal influence in the sierra nevada. we're still getting this flow from the south to north, all being driven by this massive dome of high pressure we showed you at the beginning of the newscast. but that flow is kind of drying up. while they had a severe thunderstorm watch in the sierra, it's not going to affect us at all, except some high clouds from the south today. there's two flows going on here. one is this robust onshore flow. but you'll notice that just between -- it's just making it this far. hits the hayward fault, the diablo range, tre, i bin the mae
layer from getting inland. the result is it's warm inland. pull back, and you can see this cool eddy out here too, which is serving to keep the marine layer in place. the bottom line is, it's cooler close to the shoreline today. still warm inland, but the marine layer will thicken up by the weekend and cool everybody down. strong high pressure will keep the inland spots hot as this low pressure begins to approach. by the time we hit saturday and sunday, that low will thicken things up along the shoreline. and that will allow the marine layer to get into the east bay valleys. fire danger index as we get towards friday begins to ease up, because we're going to get the low clouds coming in cooling things down. fire danger not a problem by the weekend. of course, we have to be individual lant, but at least there is nothing coming together to create a recipe for fire danger by friday, saturday and sunday. dodgers taking on the giants tonight. 62 degrees at game time, partly cloudy skies. and we're looking for tonight to be partly cloudy as well. areas of fog, temperatures stay
warm inland, seasonal near the water and cooler for everybody by the weekend. so there's relief on the way, yay. overnight lows tonight, 50s, low 60s in the east bay. balmy night if you're on the other side of the tunnel. 90 for daytime highs tomorrow. 86 for napa. warm at fairfield, 98 degrees there. and in concord, 97. san jose, where you've been lately, 86 degrees. in the extended forecast for the cities, san francisco in the 60s all the way through next week. look what happens for everybody, though, on monday, tuesday, wednesday. things begin to cool down. inland 80 degrees by the start of nec week. inland east bay does continue warm, but not as warm as it has been. so that's weather. let's get back to you guys. >> all right, brian, thanks so much. and the 49ers hit the field for their first practice as jimmy garoppolo feeling the pressure with rookie trey lance waiting in the wings. plus -- >> one dead, another injured in

fans got to see for themselves this morning. the eye candy, number 10 and number 5. quarterbacks jimmy garoppolo and trey lance. the two will work side by side every workout. asked if the rookie looking over his shoulder will get him going garoppolo answered it this way -- >> i've been around far little while. i sound old saying that, but if you don't push yourself, then you got no chance in this game. if you rely on outside forces to motivate you, it's going to be tough. but at the end of the day, i'm as motivated as it gets. like every year, it's a big year. but we got an opportunity to do something special, and i'm excited about that. that is outfielder starlin marte. the club picked him up via the marlins in a trade today. hits over .300, an everyday outfielder joining a club to remain in postseason contention. they gave one of their top
prospects just to get him. they had lost four straight and got it rightt cfinn t-run homer, routed the padres 10-4. they open up a series in anaheim tomorrow night, five and a half games behind front running houston. one and a half up on the mariners for thee the king of t. ken, sources close to me say that you have insight to niners games on this channel? >> mmm, absolutely. right here, kpix 5. no question. thanks, vern. you can catch all the preseason action live right here, as i said, on kpix 5. big matchups against the chiefs this year, chargers, raiders, all starting saturday, august 14th. keep>>r a still ahead at 5:30, a deadly shooting inside a movie

>> well, there is for sure an increase in cases throughout the rea an throughout thetate that e needs to be corresponded with any increase in public health measures. also we are seeing that there are more cases primarily among unvaccinated people, but there are some cases among vaccinated people as well, and that has led health authorities to recommend masks for everyone when in public indoor spaces. >> yes, when you and i were talking earlier, you were saying vaccinating is the key, so that's really becoming the epidemic of the unvaccinated. so what do you tell people who are vaccinated and don't want to wear masks? >> so you need to get vaccinated, please, talk to your doctor, tryar o public health web p the cdc web page, be infor a as you need tot
