7:00 am
>> from the area's local news station. you're watching the kron 4 morning news at 7. >> good morning to you. thanks for joining us here on the kron 4 morning news i'm noelle bellow it is saturday. july 17th. we've got a lot to get to this morning, including some new mask mandates happening across the state. but first we want to give you a check of your forecast kron 4 meteorologist dave spahr standing by with a look. dave, it was pretty cool. last weekend. what are we looking at this weekend. pretty much kind of business as usual. no. well, you know, you're starting off in the morning, fog and such will see the sunshine in the afternoon. that is for today. tomorrow, this to be a little bit more tricky.
7:01 am
>> as we have a couple little different elements in which to play with. yes, some elements will be talking a lot about could see potentially some dry thunder showers come across the bay area over the course of tomorrow. tomorrow night and through monday. so that's something to bear some watching. but for today it looks to be pretty good. we have that morning fog again at the coast and around the immediate bay. that's the scenario. we mix that out. we'll go back to mostly sunny. here is the golden gate bridge. you can see the fog is starting to now lift up above that hours. however, sometimes it sinks a little bit as it starts its mixing process temperatures pretty controlled in the mid to upper 50's over most of the region. we have 61 for cuts. the out water in comparison. we're a couple degrees ahead of yesterday, but not by much. so it's pretty close on par with what we had. here is what we what are we talking about. however, sunday and monday, we have dry thunder showers as a possibility we're really watching those higher elevations too, because of dry lightning strikes can be very problematic and starting fires 7711 at 2 o'clock 89. so we'll
7:02 am
probably see some lower 90's in some of the inland valleys will get to all of that coming up in just a bit. >> we have to realize that this idea that somehow we're vaccinated and we're done with the pandemic is not right. we have to do is realize that we have to combine vaccines with the other precautionary measures. >> to our top story now with the uptick in positive coronavirus cases in california. doctors say even if you're fully vaccinated, it's now wise once again to mask up inside public places. now, this comes as more and more counties across the state are now encouraging masks. los angeles county, even mandating them. here's a look at where we are right now across the state as of friday. the california department of public health has reported more than 4600 new cases, 65 deaths and a 3.7% test positivity rate that positivity rate has nearly
7:03 am
tripled from the start of july when the rate was just one 0.4% now as we start to see an uptick in cases bay area. health departments are saying it is a good idea to mask up indoors. if you live in any of these counties, you're being asked to wear a mask when you're inside in a public setting. again, these are just recommendations here in the bay area as health officials are reporting the delta variant is highly transmissible people we talked to an alameda say it's probably wise to go back to indoor masking. >> i don't mind keeping my mask on inside. i i do it automatically even though i'm double vaccinated for a long time for a few months. i think a lot >> ability to go into businesses and restaurants without masks. is great everybody is vaccinated, but especially for kids and people can't get vaccinated. >> they're so big rest. >> health officials are recommending people wear masks indoors and other settings like grocery stores, movie
7:04 am
theaters and family entertainment centers solano and napa counties are the only 2 bay area counties that have not changed their mask recommendations. now on our facebook page. we do have a poll asking you about the new indoor masking guidelines will you wear a mask indoors or not. 72% of people saying they will. 28% say they will not. in the meantime, it's the same conversation over in las vegas. health officials there are now advising everyone vaccinated or not to wear face coverings in crowds and indoor places. it's not a requirement. but the recommendation includes casinos concerts and clubs business has been booming there since restrictions were lifted. 7 weeks ago. a union represent a union representing 60,000 casino workers say their members are at risk by unvaccinated patrons. 97% of the bat as recent hospitalizations are people who have not been vaccinated.
7:05 am
now, happening tonight, a new mask mandate will take effect in la county because of the alarming surge of covid-19 cases fueled by the delta variant. there county health officials have reported nearly 2000 new cases and more than 450 people are hospitalized there with covid-19. that's more than double the number from last month. and it's not just their cases are climbing in nearly all 50 states. it's led to the white house issuing lpa new warning saying covid-19 dis information on social media is quote, literally killing people as allison harris reports, the biden administration is focusing on getting rid of dis-information. >> this is becoming a pandemic of the unvaccinated. the cdc director putting it plainly more than 97% of people hospitalized with covid right now. are not vaccinated. i'm still undergoing a lot of the facts, charlie in missouri was among i thought had covid. it's just that and ammonia,
7:06 am
but it wasn't going to be that bad. well, i was wrong. from the icu. he started taking it seriously. covid is real. the president today placing some of the blame for people not getting vaccinated on the lies being spread on social media sites like facebook, people. >> the only pandemic we they're killing >> i think friday is spokesperson addressing some of the misinformation today. the full sadia that vaccines cause infertility which is not true. and des proven time and time again. this is troubling, but a persistent narrative. the dis information is spreading as fast as the delta variant now affecting more younger americans as many elderly people are already vaccinated, children ages 12 to 15 are least likely to have gotten the shot. 12 year-old grace here. so in texas just
7:07 am

7:14 am
7:15 am
7:16 am
>> welcome back. 7.16 here on this saturday morning. and wildfires are burning in certain parts of the state. more than 8,000 acres have been burned by the dixie fire in butte county crews say they're having a hard time containing the flames because of the steep terrain. the fire is near the burn scar of the deadly camp fire in paradise. it is 9% contained this morning. meanwhile, strong winds continue to hamper efforts to contain the backcourt complex fire up in northern california near the nevada border and has burned
7:17 am
more than 105,000 acres. this one 70% contained this morning. more than 30 homes have been destroyed, though, in the small town of doyle as a result of this fire. officials say this one was sparked from a lightning strike. and the river fire burning in mariposa not far from yosemite national park. cal fire says those flames. >> have burned more than 9600 acres. the river fire now 64% contains. definitely not. what we want to this at this point in the fire season. and we know that we might be seeing some of those dry lightning later this weekend for a little bit more detail on that going over to dave spahr a day. >> you know well, and it's only july. you know, this kind of stuff can linger all the way until october. this dry lightning this is part of the gearing up for fire season. the we have kind of comes intrusive from somewhere else. we're starting off with our traditional fog. but it's a little thinner than a tends to be because of that influence from that high off to the
7:18 am
southeast. but there you have a kind of overcast happening in half moon bay and it will clear up there as well as other areas around the bay that are seeing the fog this morning such as the golden gate bridge. again, it has to do some positioning this morning and told finding really starts to clear out temperature checker in the 50's over almost all the real estate except 64 going on for antioch. but let's roll through this very carefully will become crystal clear. we're talking about here. the traditional fog in the morning mixes out usually see the flare up of some thunder showers in the afternoon up the mountains but seeing that so much today. but tomorrow different program. here comes the fog again tonight already. you can see it coming up here from our southeast then by tomorrow afternoon it gets more interesting. we do see some painting of those thunder showers that actually may strike the ground a little bit off towards the mountains. however, all of this moisture. this is mid level moisture hanging up here around the bay. the problem is that the surface. it's fairly dry. so it has to fight to drier to get here. but all the dynamics up there to produce lightning.
7:19 am
so that's where the problem lies and we put those 2 together and they're bad combination. by the way, upstream into next weekend we might be seeing the same type of thing to look out for. so this will be from a sunday monday event. let's check the surface real quick here. alright, we dry out in the afternoon today. no problems because everybody seeing sunny skies here comes the flood of the moisture overnight. that's good. but it mixes out. and in the afternoon, this is the relative humidity levels that that rain has to fight through the virga evaporates. and we're just left with dry lightning. so on our forecasts turning mostly sunny mild 70's for the bay 80's 90's inland not too bad for mid july tomorrow. into monday. we're talking about dry lightning possible fire weather. watch that's in place. then next week it's sunny and mild for the bay near about 80 going on. so not too crazy with those temperatures, but then we're watching towards the end of the week. maybe the return of some thunder showers 66 san francisco 73 for oakland 81 san jose across the wider bay. when you consider some drier
7:20 am
air off to the east bay. we've got a 90's in place here with 80's up to the north bay. coming up a little bit here. we'll take a look at the longer range forecast for you and along with 4 zone. 2 noel. >> all right. thanks, dave. now hope for a brand new waterfront ballpark seems to be fading for the oakland a's the city has come out with its latest financial plan for the development. the a's say it's a step in the wrong direction. they say no deal kron four's dan kerman explains why. >> plans to create a new waterfront home for the oakland a's at the howard terminal have hit another roadblock. say the city of oakland's latest financial plan for the development is not one they can support the offer we received this morning was really a step backwards. you know, we've been negotiating for almost 3 straight days. 18 hours a day. >> but it's actually farther apart than we were oakland. a's yresident dave campbell says the city's proposal doesn't address who pays for offside infrastructure. the a's don't think it's their responsibility. they want to
7:21 am
special assessment districts to generate 450 million dollars to pay for on-site, infrastructure and say the city can use the rest of the money generated to pay for affordable housing. but the city's proposal says the age should pay for affordable housing, which amounts to 30% of all housing built this part of the development. the city also wants to set up a single special assessment district to help the a's pay for infrastructure improvements on site. in a statement, mayor libby schaff said the city's plan moves us one step closer to making the vision of a world class ballpark, a reality. we appreciate the a's working with us to reach consensus. but the a's are running out of patience. >> the plan that they actually propose today if they vote on that. a yes on that. that's a no on the project. that's not something we agree to. there's no consensus within the city council is set to vote on the city's proposal tuesday. the a's would rather they vote on the team's proposal and approve that this is our last option and oakland, like i said, we're down to our last
7:22 am
at-bat again, the city council expected to vote on this latest financing proposal on tuesday. the a's indicating that if they approve this proposal, it will be a message to the a's to start looking elsewhere to play baseball. >> dan kerman kron 4 news. >> still ahead here on the kron 00:00am morning news the a's do walk it off in dramatic fashion against the indians. kylen mills shows us how they kylen mills shows us how they did it. after oroweat small slice. i wonder if this has the same quality ingredients as the original whole grains bread? great question, dad. and it does. it has all the same nutritious deliciousness as the original slice but only a little bit smaller. just like timmy here. my name's lucas. expertly tailored eye care. state-of-the-art eye exams. high quality lenses and frames.

7:47 am
happening 6 weeks into the future. a week. rain and snow season has pushed up what can dry out by about a month and a half. >> now july. we're looking like late august even september. that's what we used to get our fastest growing fires are most critical fire behavior even dangerous conditions. >> dave sphar is here with a little bit more detail on when the dry lightning might be reaching us here. david, you said tomorrow, correct. yeah, that's right. that's what the weather office is now telling monday there this afternoon or tomorrow afternoon, rather all the way through monday afternoon. it looks like that just seems to be the peak of the action. however, we show you the models. it looks like we start getting that moisture flow a little earlier. that means before noon tomorrow. >> but the real concern about all this is as they mention the higher elevations could get a little bit of uplift here. lets people we have right now. here's above that fog. we have at the coast. that's going make south. that's local condition. that's moisture to but that's a nice kind of moisture because that's very dense. it's not

8:16 am
like that's going to actually produce any rain, right, dave. know we make it a stray shower here or there. but you're lucky if you got that in remember with this drier air. it's robbing us from what would be. in other words, if you get a nice little shower. it would have been a better rain had it not been. >> those kind of conditions. all walk to the humidity levels in just a bit. live shot coming in from u c berkeley. here's the improvement. the shrubbery showing up in the foreground behind all of it. well, the fog just start to lift off as you can make notice some of the blue skies piercing on through as it will be another pleasant. but summertime day across the bay today, golden gate bridge still working on it here we have pretty much of a lot of fog that's still intruding temperature check. we have the 50's and 60's mixture lot of east bay locations already popping into the 60's 59 right now in hayward, a fremont at 56, by the way, futurecast for for today. we take care of the morning fog afternoon thunder shower activity not very dynamic. it doesn't look like for today. that is tomorrow gets more interesting. here is the morning fog already the bubbling up of some of that moisture. we spoke of and here
8:17 am
comes up to our neck of the woods. can't rule out a stray shower juror household. but what we're really worried about is the lightning a lot going through some fairly dry air and it won't have much the way of rain working with it, at least not at the surface. and when you have that evaporation, remember the other factor that comes into place. some winds to get some afternoon winds with that, too. if there's a thunder shower around hills around you. you get probably the outflow from all of that activity. and by the way, we may be repeating some of this into next weekend as a potential. so let's look at the moisture levels. they drop off today. this is somewhat typical into the 20's. although today not much is happening here comes the morning fog. yep, that mixes out to boom. this is when the action should be happening in fairly dry air. that's in place picking up to the east bay into the 20% relative humidity. so get you everywhere thunder shower like in florida or something. but in florida there's a lot of moisture. so that rain gets the ground here gets evaporated. that's an energy exchange. that's cold air that cold air falls. there's your winds lightning from all that
8:18 am
action upstairs. there you have a dry lightning. so we're missing some elements in a good thunder shower with this. we could use the rain is noel was saying. but unfortunately this will come with the ride turning mostly sunny and mild 70's for the bay 80's 90's inland got some lower 90's going on sunday afternoon through monday. got a fire weather. watch. this is mostly for the hills of the bay area, not as much of the lower level areas, although solano counties, all included in that dry lightning is a possibility next week, sunny and mild. we're going to be working on near 80 degree temperatures warm inland, though, with some upper 80's as you get more inland, which again is not too bad. it's pretty close. the season by next weekend, though it gets interesting again. 66 san francisco 73 for oakland 81 san jose in the inland areas today will do the 90's, which is a lot better than triple digits up in the north bay may only be the upper 80's to 4 zone coming up and also take a look at that extended. well. >> thanks, dave. taking a live look now tokyo. just 6 days

8:48 am
weather watch because of some dry lightning in to get some gusty winds too concentrating on the heavier of the higher elevations rather except solano county just about the whole counties and all that. that's due to the fact that that's the higher elevations. it might be the incubator to see this kickoff. in other words, all the air gets forced up. and as it gets for steps all this vertical stuff as it gets forced because the higher elevations. it starts to condense out and what a stretch to do its energy exchange and so forth. that's when you start to get the rubbing together to produce the lightning and the rain is supposed to come down. well, sometimes will evaporate before it gets here. now here's what as we go forward. this is tomorrow. now here's the cloud cover we're talking about. you don't see much green on there doesn't mean it's not happening aloft. it just means we don't expect much hitting the ground and not very impressive off to the sierra either. so this is about 06:00pm on sunday it's still right over our heads. at that point in lingering on into the overnight here as a formality. they're keeping it in place until monday morning as because you get some more daylight out and that tends to

9:17 am
get dry lightning off to the mountains might see some of this rain get to the ground. let's go and check it out in terms of the moisture levels. they drop off. typically this afternoon. shore comes back again overnight. but with a thunder shower happening and you got dew points like wrote sorry. relative humidities like that. that's dry air that that rain has to go through. so with that, that's why we have the dry lightning in the fire weather. watch. that's been posed tomorrow into monday for today, though, turning mostly sunny. we're almost there mild with 70's for the bay, 80's and 90's going on. well, inland for next week relatively uneventful. once we get past monday. it's pretty much of a mostly sunny trend could have some upper 80's going on along the inland communities. but along the bay side will probably be ok for today. we're talking 66 san francisco 73 for oakland 81 san jose across the wider geography. there are some of your 90's in the far east bay 80's. meanwhile, up to the north bay. now coming up a little bit. we'll check into that 4 zone forecast to check things out. look at the extended in may be potentially some problems into next weekend.
