is blocking out your view of berkeley currently we are seeing a couple of spots out there where visibility has been diminished due to this low cloud cover and fog including portions of the inland east bay. the north bay as well as areas right along the coastline. but as a promise you we will get that dose of sunshine later today. more so than not fairly cloudy at the coast, though, our current temperatures are mostly in the 50's right now with oakland at 58 degrees alameda, dublin and pittsburgh each at 56. i've got more on your forecast over the weekend. still to come. but let's go to rein in first with your early check of the roads. thank you for that, john. right now early looks great on this friday and hopefully we'll stay fairly light where we are right now. if you're heading from the east bay into the city right now. a little under 8 minutes for your drive time this morning. the san mateo bridge also nice and clear traveling across towards the peninsula under 13 minutes. so still looks great. there. and our richmond sandra commute as you're traveling at a richmond. a few cars sprinkle there under 8 minutes staying on top of your friday
light commute for now. daryn gives back to you. all right. let's get back to covid and the spread of the delta variant across the country and here in california. so cases have more than doubled in the last 2 weeks. the white house says that they're monitoring the situation as it continues to worsen. but what are we supposed to do. wear a mask again. >> our dc correspondent kellie meyer has the latest on the efforts to slow the spread. >> good morning. the president is said to be briefed on these concerns and the state of vaccinations across the country as rates spike nationwide. us covid cases are on the rise once again, we're still losing people to this virus from nevada to florida. the number of cases surging in over half of us states and territories. areas of the country where vaccination rates are low in states like missouri, arkansas, and louisiana seeing a spike and to be clear, there will likely continue to be an increase in cases among unvaccinated americans. the delta variant
is infecting both vaccinated and unvaccinated americans in l a it's deja vu as the county starts to require masks indoors regardless of vaccination status for states like tennessee vaccine outreach has stopped for those 14 and older. despite an uptick in cases kids return to school in just a few the white house this week is recruiting the help of teen pop stars to encourage younger kids to get vaccinated. it's important to have conversations with friends and family members. we ask people to raise the bar. the u.s. surgeon general is urging americans to not fall for misinformation surrounding vaccines. >> warning of the co sequences poses an imminent, an insidious threat to our nation's health and the cdc predicts anywhere from 50,000 to 400,000 new covid-19 cases are likely to be reported in that first week of august. >> that could translate to anywhere from 800 deaths to 4,000 reporting in washington. i'm kelly meyer.
>> here we are one month after california's full reopening and this delta variant is triggering the return of mask mandates for some and even new warnings for people who are vaccinated and unvaccinated as kelli meyer just mentioned, los angeles county has ordered a new indoor mask mandate. a lot of people wondering what about the bay area. will we do the same. kron four's taylor takes a look. >> as as uncertainty with delta and with a relatively lower vaccination rate in southern california can get to northern california. it is actually not surprising that the public health and political leaders they would enact such a mandate on thursday, los angeles county reinstated its indoor mask mandate. >> now raising questions on what this may mean for the bay area infectious disease expert doctor peter chin-hong says while los angeles county has hired cases and lower vaccination rates than the bay area counties. its numbers
could have future impact on our mask mandates. >> i'm a little concerned just for the bay area as a whole because way. you look. because when you look at where the hot spots are right now in the state. it's actually above us in the sacramento area and below us and the la area. so you have the top and bottom. and i feel like we're being encouraged because again, people move freely and just because we have a high vaccination rates doesn't make us completely immune from what's happening around us. >> instead of a widespread mask mandate. doctor chin-hong says we could see county by county decide to follow eli's footsteps specifically for those with higher cases in lower vaccination rates like solano county, for example, meanwhile, san francisco's covid case rates in vaccinations have been some of the best as of tuesday. 83% of those eligible have received at least one dose of the vaccine and 76% of those eligible are fully vaccinated still forwardlooking data through this week. projects.
case rates will rise to 73 cases per day. he sevenfold increase from mid-june. it's anybody's. >> guess whether not san francisco and other counties surrounding it well and not these mask mandates. again, if hospitalizations and deaths remain low, it will be more of an emotional response or maybe a call for people to get vaccinated. >> taylor kron 4 news. >> well, another big story that we're following beginning this fall all you see. students and staff are going to have to be fully vaccinated before returning to class. that's what they've decided come for. sarah stinson is live at cal this morning with the details. good morning, sarah. >> yeah. they use the system. they announced this paul see and going into effect this fall, all students faculty staff anybody who's going to be on campus like u c berkeley. they're going to have to have that coronavirus vaccination and be fully vaccinated at that. >> surprisingly, this is.
policy that's here to stay. i was just reading some of the q and a from the sea system and it said this policy is permanent. so if the cdc does recommend that people get a booster shot in the future. will that's going to be required as well. this comes as the delta variant is spiking cases mostly in people who have not been vaccinated. so now the entire you see system is saying vaccinations are required. now there are exceptions for those who have medical conditions. but it has to be approved. all students attending a you see this fall must provide documentation for their vaccination status. everyone has to be fully vaccinate with full shots or just thought one jnj for those who are unable to get a vaccine prior to campus arrival, student health centers will be assisting to make sure they have access to vaccine. they want to make sure everyone gets it. who needs this morning. it will be interesting to see if there's
any students we can talk to. how do they feel about this today. feel like this is fair or not. you know, berkeley is an interesting you see school where it's got a lot of kids or from all walks of life. so sure. those people with different opinions. for now live in berkeley. sarah stinson back to you. all right. thanks a lot, sarah. >> another sign that things are somewhat getting back to normal or bay area concerts are coming back foster city has loosened covid restrictions for its concert series that begins tomorrow at leo ryan park coming arco is live with details on that. good morning, camila. >> good morning. deiah james. so yeah, foster city is doing the opposite of la county instead, as you guys said, they are loosening their covid-19 restrictions for a concert series here at leo ryan park. they are not going to be enforcing mask or social distancing instead they are going to be hosting these concerts like they were before the pandemic started. so these concerts, these events are
going to be a first come first serve bases with no capacity. limits or advance reservations. the fencing initially used to maintain crowds will be taken down and those painted spaces that were also used to maintain social distancing will be removed and the people who reserve their spots for these concerts will be given a refund. foster city officials say that they recommend people social distance and wear a mask. if you're not fully vaccinated, when you're in the crowd. but as i said, they won't be enforcing any of this and city leaders also say that they moved forward with these less restrictive rules actor hearing back from the community. they say that it also aligns with the guidance given from the state and the county. the first concert series is being held here tomorrow. at 06:00pm at leo ryan park darren james, back to you. >> thank you very much. camila. >> it's 5 '08, and and still ahead on the kron 00:00am

happens, we actually some monsoonal moisture pushing in towards the end of the weekend into early next week. we'll talk about just a sack from the coast light winds today. that means less intrusive sea breeze and inland areas are going to warm up because of that lesson sea breeze today temperatures in the 50's and 60's for your highs near the coastline. san francisco will get a window sunshine little less of that sunshine near the coast, you're going to stay pretty gray out that way. 60's and 70's for bayshore cities today foster city 72 redwood city 76 south bay temperatures in the 70's to low 80's with campbell saratoga in los gatos low 80's san jose at 78 fremont 73 today while pleasanton livermore walnut creek concord in danville. all back into the 80's oakland berkeley richmond in the 60's for your afternoon highs. no 90's yet. not even for usual spots like antioch in vacaville, staying in the upper 80's for just one more day tomorrow. i'm expecting a few 90's to pop back up inland and a lot more of those 90's come monday of next week,
especially so i mention that thunderstorm activity building back in as monsoonal energy arrives back to the bay area. this could result in a few dry lightning strikes come monday. it doesn't look like frequency is likely to be much. but that does up fire danger along with an increase in temperatures, something to be mindful of and vigilant as we start the new week reyna. john, thank you for that. we are actively tracking your morning commute for you got a couple of traffic collisions out there like this one in berkeley. >> 80 westbound at gilman street. and you see is causing just a slight delay along 80 and up here in fairfield, 80 westbound at waterman boulevard. another traffic collision. we're actively looking at heading into the city this morning, a little under 9 minutes for your drive times to no major issues across the bay bridge and the san mateo bridge also looks nice and live for us at under 13 we'll have more throughout the morning daryn. james, back to you. >> all right. thank you very much. rain at 5.17 the time san francisco police have arrested a man who they say robbed a store on 5th street near folsom in the south of market neighborhood. it happened monday. and you can see the video here caught on

do we i know these days. we have i much prefer the great to what we have on monday, which will be warmer conditions and a chance of some dry lightning which is concerning. >> as far as wildfires ago. so just something to look out for into the start of next week along with that heat today is going to be a bit warmer than yesterday but really not that much just yet. temperatures are still relatively mild considering what time of year it is looking outside at your berkeley hills camp skies are definitely gray. that's a given at this point. we're ending week like we've started it and spent the entire week really morning hours will continue to remain cloudy. a couple of spots out there were visibility will be affected, especially for you in the north bay but cloud cover and fog does burn off. setting us up for sunshine for most areas staying mostly gray at the coast today 50's for most of our current temperatures livermore dublin in pittsburgh each at 56 oakland, one of more mild spots this morning, sitting right now at 58 reyna. we do have some early morning traffic collisions out there already like this one in
richmond that just popped up 80 westbound at carlson boulevard. we're seeing just a slight delay. the richmond sandra fell bridge, though, looks nice and light as you're traveling across heading into the city down to under 9 minutes to the fremont street exit want to reach the maze. >> into the city there. the san mateo bridge. no major issues or delays. a little under 30 minutes. and the richmond sandra fell commute at 7. we'll stay on top of your friday commute hopefully it stays light. daryn. james, back to you. all right. thank you very much. rain at 5.30 is the time wildfires, of course, is still a big threat across the bay area. we're only. >> just now getting into fire season, but millions of dollars are being used to try and help prevent them from getting too bad with kron. four's will tran standing by live at foot hills regional park in walnut creek to explain how good morning. well. good morning, james. what they want to do is starved wildfires. let's face it, we live in wildfire country. and right now we are in wildfire season. so the hills right behind me. >> once the sun comes out, you will really see just how yellow the hills are. so the
best way they believe is if a fire happens to break out. just try to remove as much material as they possibly can before it happens. and we're talking about dead trees and dry brush. this is something that they have done before. so let me show you video. they've actually started doing this over the last several years to attack the park's not just in the bay area but all over california to remove all of the dry vegetation just in case a fire breaks out because with that dry vegetation, it goes up very quickly utterance to embers and then he travels to other places, especially since we are in a drought right now. it's even more important that they do that. so 10 million dollars will be used at various parks over the next year or so or maybe over the next decade to remove all that dry vegetation. and i say decades is because they've already spent about 20 million dollars over the past several years to do just this. this is just more money into the pot. so 10 million will go towards a lot of the parks in the east bay regional park district in
their circulation and then 3 and a half million of the 13 and a half million dollars will be spent on new equipment to make that job easier for them to remove the dry vegetation on top of that, they are reminding people. whenever you go to a park. no smoking. and if there are areas that allow you to do a fire only to do it in those particular areas. it is extremely dry. james and i got to tell you, one match and this whole area could go up in flames. and yes, this is a remote area, but let's face it, walnut creek is just a few miles from this location, downtown walnut creek and with the winds and the dry conditions and the ridge us it won't take very long before a fire fingers crossed that it doesn't happen here. travels to walnut creek back to you. as we saw in the north bay. will it happen in minutes. those fires can move fast when the winds pick up. >> thank you very much for the report. >> oh, yeah. this comes as major wildfires are burning all across the west coast flames from the dixie fire are creeping along the burn scar
area of the camp fire that devastated paradise in 2018 and that's just one of dozens of wildfires that are burning up and down our coast. the fires have been fueled by the drought and the extreme heat and experts say that things are not going to get better any time soon. nancy loo has that story. >> the massive plume from the dixie fire in butte county leaves no doubt that the firefight is a big one. it is mainly an air attack due to very steep terrain, which is just north of the burn scar from the 2018 camp fire. i lost everything area. residents are clearly anxious and keeping close tabs on the new fire which is nearing 5,000 acres seeing the plumes of smoke. it really raises everyone's anxiety level. >> union pacific is in on the fight deploying water tankers to zap hillside, flames and protect israel tracks. but cal
fire says onlookers and drone activity or an issue. please do not come into the area. weather driving into the area or you think you can fly a drone into the area because we're going to have to stop or suppression efforts from the air. >> to the north. a massive bootleg fire continues to ravage southern oregon. it has grown to over 227,000 acres and is just 7% but firefighters now have the upper hand on the beckwourth complex fire along the california-nevada line. we're lucky we are where they lived residents of the small town of doyle have been allowed to return. but some have nothing to return to. and no, i did in this world every detail. >> because not a rich person again, just buy >> boom right there. >> 5.34 and a lot of winery owners in napa county say they're concerned about the from wildfires they know firsthand how damaging they can be. they are also asking
county officials to invest more in areas firefighting capabilities. we have kron four's terisa stasio with a closer look at that. >> in the hennessey fire just last year, flames roared through napa county destroying homes, impacted communities and scorching valuable land in response, an organization of wine country growers in tourism based vendors want to see some change in a letter obtained by kron 4 news, the collective is asking the napa board of supervisors to explore creating, quote, its own independent county run fire department, strengthening local firefighting capacity and investigating state and federal grants. this is not the county supervisor alfredo we understand the local frustration, the former vintners from our industry and also from our residents. you know, they've been dealing wildfires back to back on top of the pandemic. >> as a supervisor explained the county now contracts with cal fire to help with fire prevention and mitigation needs. we've had a very good
relationship with cal fire and they have responded to napa county can really great in significant ways. i think what you have seen locally is when the whole state is on fire. there's multiple counties fire. there's been resource limitations and it's completely acceptable. for a nap or residents say, well, use most important part in every residence going to see that in their local community. and i think what you're seeing residents are seeing their properties from with not enough local resources being to address these wildfire dangers and you know, it happened more than once. and i think that is what we're seeing is that while in motion of feeling helpless in making sure that there's enough resources for a community. and i think that is a question that they're asking the vendors group also pointed out neighboring sonoma county recently won the 37 million dollar grant. >> for wildfire mitigation and perhaps with a locally controlled fire agency napa to could apply. and when a grant
to help with mitigation factors at this moment in time. >> is cal-fire said the best partner for napa county, maybe. but we have an opportunity to valley. got to validate that count for might be the best partner or is it better served by a local department. and again, we need to understand the fiscal constraints. with that being but also what it means to the outcomes. and i think now the county and cal fire want to see which is having safe communities on the suppression side. also the recognition that we need to invest a lot more in preventing fires that's equally as port to recess to kron 4 news. >> still ahead on the kron 00:00am morning news taking bart from the bay area sacramento. how close that plan is to becoming a reality. we'll take a look. and after the break, former 40 niner richard sherman back home now after his arrest. we'll have details on the strict rules that he has to follow from the judge. and we are looking at some low clouds sitting over the bay this morning. really no big surprise there. the
view at sfo is like it's been all week long. the spark. >> later on today. look forward to some still comfortable temperatures, 70's and 80's for your highs. i've got your forecast ahead. and we've already started tracking some early earlier accidents out here, no major hot spots. >> checking the roadways your bridges highways. we'll have more on that once we get back from break. we made usaa insurance for members like martin. an air force veteran made of doing what's right, not what's easy. so when a hailstorm hit, usaa reached out before he could even inspect the damage. that's how you do it right. usaa insurance is made just the way martin's family needs it with hassle-free claims, he got paid before his neighbor even got started. because doing right by our members, that's what's right.
niner richard sherman was released from jail without bail. but he does have to live under some strict conditions. he does. yeah. the washington state judge ordered the chairman cannot drink alcohol. he cannot possess any firearm or have any contact with his father in law. this all comes after he was arrested by police early wednesday morning in that 911, call, sherman's wife told dispatchers that he was threatening to hurt himself and was a big concern. police believe that sherman after the wife at their house drove under the influence when his suv crashed into a construction zone around 01:00am and they found the vehicle abandoned and then they say. >> that's where they found them at the in-laws house he they say was trying to break in. he is accused of then resisting arrest before a canine was used to apprehend him and now he faces 4 non felony charges. sherman is currently free agent in the nfl. we he still trying to find another team.
