7:00 am
>> from the area's local news station. you're watching the kron 00:00am morning news at 7. >> good saturday morning to you. thanks for joining us here on the kron 00:00am morning news. i'm noelle bellow. it is the final day of july. july 31st. we've got a lot to get to this morning, but we do want to start off by getting a look at your weather forecast. dave spahr over there in the weather center o% with all the details morning day. >> well, good morning. welcome morning, everybody. and starting off with our traditional fog and some coastal drizzle is also working its magic a little bit too. but the skies open up to a pretty decent weekend. we have in store here almost kind of goldilocks like to be well in the inland valleys where temperatures will pop too bad
7:01 am
this afternoon. but that fog is covering things up along the east bay shoreline. as you can see, kind of overcast and more than that just filled with fog. as we can see. also the a golden gate bridge to all the towers are obscured at this hour. now, as far as anything what's going to develop we'll see. later on along the spine of the sierra. they'll be afternoon thunder showers actually have some flash flood watches that have been posted. they're so after get some daytime heating action. what happened there. but again, turning mostly sunny, for most of the bay today. thus the progress we have 60's over a good portion of the midday. also in the east bay up to the north. they were in the 5061 san jose for today 77 by 11 by 2, we're talking 89 again. we'll see some inland highs reaching about 90 or so, but nothing too terrible. a closer inspection of your forecast in just a bit. well. >> all right. thanks, dave. to our top story now that times have changed yet again in the battle against covid-19 new evidence from the cdc shows the delta variant acts like an entirely different virus. it's
7:02 am
more contagious than the common cold flu smallpox and ebola virus. and it's just as contagious as the chicken pox studies from overseas show. the delta variant may pose a greater risk for hospitalization, intensive care treatment and death than previous variants. and as more and more breakthrough cases are starting to pop up health officials are recommending both vaccinated and unvaccinated residents mask up indoors yet again. san francisco now averaging 176 new covid cases per week, a 10 fold increase in cases since june. new data shows case rates among unvaccinated people are more than double that of those who have been vaccinated and hospitalization rates for unvaccinated people 8 times higher than for vaccinated. now. 77% of san francisco residents are vaccinated. the city says more needs to be done, though, to reach those who have not yet gotten their shots until that happens, health experts say there should be an indoor mask mandate for everyone.
7:03 am
>> cdc said sit back say people can take their mask off. the second part of the sentence was an unvaccinated. people should keep their mask off like how can you tell and do you really believe that all the unvaccinated people have made that choice are also religiously wearing masks everywhere. i i don't. so i think until the cases come down a lot. i think a mask mandate is perfectly reasonable. and i think is that is the right thing to do it for recommending likely to indoor masking. >> san francisco's public health director says the city is in discussion with surrounding counties about an indoor mask mandate. it will likely be instituted some time next week. another big concern is more variants. scientists fear the delta could already be mutating. new research shows vaccines alone might not be able to prevent future variants. researchers say the virus is less likely to spread and mutate when people wear masks and stay socially
7:04 am
distant. but the report concludes the best way to stop the spread is to vaccinate as many people as possible as quickly as possible. now it isn't just san francisco seeing a rise in hospitalizations. all 9 bay area counties are too with the biggest jump being in alameda county kron four's gayle ong has the very latest from the east bay. >> alameda county reports almost 50 new hospitalizations in a week. people i spoke with say they are taking extra precautions in the district of fremont. people are still wearing masks outside. i think that we can all do we need to do. and if it's like just putting on a mask. while we're indoors or even outside. i think. >> it's worth they've been saying inside a little bit more going out was i always keep my mask on even though it's optional now and places both women we spoke with say they are worried about the delta variant. and i don't really want the world to shut down again like we had to do. >> we ought to shelter in place and stop on a little bit
7:05 am
more concerned about college because i'm going back. so i don't know how that's going to be with this news stream coming out because we had agreed to go in person and online. but with this new strain, who for all going to go completely online or not. covid related hospitalizations are climbing in some bay area counties alameda county has seen the biggest increase since last week. the county was at 120 patients on july 22nd. and this week it is that 168. that's why public health officials are urging people to mask up in certain places regardless of vaccination status karen see has been moving indoor gatherings with friends outdoors, try to keep it more like. >> let's gather in someone's backyard just to make a little bit more comfortable for everybody because everyone's, you know, on a different spectrum of how comfor able they feel being indoors. and as of this month, data shows alameda county is seeing an increase in covid testing. meanwhile, vaccinations have been down since june reporting from fremont. gayle ong kron 4 news. >> today. kaiser is helping get students ready for

8:01 am

8:02 am
chicken pox studies from overseas show. the delta variant may pose a greater risk for hospitalization, intensive care treatment and death than previous variants. and as more and more breakthrough cases pop up health officials are recommending both vaccinated and unvaccinated residents mask-up indoors yet again now san francisco is averaging 176 new covid cases per week. that's a tenfold increase in cases since june. new data shows case rates among unvaccinated people are more than double that of those who've been vaccinated and hospitalization rates for unvaccinated people are 8 times higher that for vaccinated. 77% of san francisco residents are vaccinated. but the city says more needs to be done to reach those who have not yet gotten their shots until that happens, health experts say there should be an indoor mask mandate for everyone. >> cdc said sit back say people can take their mask off. the second part of the sentence was an unvaccinated. people should keep their mask off like how can you tell and
8:03 am
do you really believe that all the unvaccinated people have made that choice are also religiously wearing masks everywhere. i i don't. so i think until the cases come down a lot. i think a mask mandate is perfectly reasonable. and i think is that is the right thing to do. it for recommending likely to indoor masking. >> san francisco's public health director says the city is in discussion with surrounding counties about an indoor mask mandate and it will likely be instituted some time next week. another big concern, though, is more variants. now scientists fear the delta could already be mutating. new research shows vaccines alone might not be able to prevent future variants of the covid-19 virus. researchers say it's less likely to spread and mutate when people wear masks and stay socially distant. but the report concludes the best way to stop the spread is to vaccinate as many people as possible as quickly as possible. now it is just san francisco that seeing a rise
8:04 am

8:05 am
covid related hospitalizations are climbing in some bay area counties alameda county has seen the biggest increase since last week. the county was at 120 patients on july 22nd. and this week it is that 168. that's why public health officials are urging people to mask up in certain places regardless of vaccination status karen see has been moving indoor gatherings with friends outdoors, try to keep it more like. >> let's gather in someone's backyard just to make a little bit more comfortable for everybody because everyone's, you know, on a different spectrum of how comfortable they feel being indoors. and as of this month, data shows alameda county is seeing an increase in covid testing. meanwhile, vaccinations have been down since june reporting from fremont. gayle ong kron 4 news. >> today. kaiser is helping to get students ready for in-person learning offering a covid vaccine and school supplies event today, children 12 to 17 years old, can get their shot and pick up some free school supplies at beebe

8:17 am
into small. too quickly. poses a problem which we can store all this. but anyway, heavy rain expected in that part. then tomorrow we do see again scattered showers but not quite the intensity. so i don't think they're going to reinstate that flash flood watch going on there. but again, some more thunder showers going on tomorrow. now later on, the bigger picture shows that's going to kind of about parade away because we have a low off towards our northwest is going to clean up a good chunk of the west from that kind of monsoon flareup don't see any monsoon coming up from our perspective, though, for this weekend itself. fog in the morning, mostly sunny by afternoon. we'll call it nice with 70's. pretty much in the bay and inland. most readings will be in the 80's but near 9 year so early in the week, mild start more of the same 80's and some lower 90's working their way in their east bay and then by late in the week. that's where thursday or so my pop in some pockets may be in the mid 90's briefly before retreating yet again into next weekend. so

9:02 am
hospitalization, intensive care treatment and death than previous variants and as more and more breakthrough cases pop up health officials are now recommending both vaccinated and unvaccinated residents mask up indoors yet again. san francisco is now averaging 176 new covid cases per week. that's a 10 fold increase in cases since june. new data showing case rates among unvaccinated people are more than double that. of those who have been vaccinated and hospitalization rates for unvaccinated people are 8 times higher than for vaccinated. 77% of san francisco residents are vaccinated. the city says more needs to be done, though, to reach those who have not yet gotten their shots until that happens, health experts say there should be an indoor mask mandate for everyone. >> cdc said said back say people can take their mask off. the second part of the sentence was an unvaccinated. people should keep their mask off like how can you tell and do you really believe that all the unvaccinated people have
9:03 am
made that choice are also religiously wearing masks everywhere. i i don't. so i think until the cases come down a lot. i think a mask mandate is perfectly reasonable. and i think is that is the right thing to do it for recommending likely to indoor masking. >> san francisco's public health director says the city is in discussion with surrounding counties about indoor mask mandates and it will likely be instituted some time next week. now another big concern is more variants as scientists fear the delta could already be mutating. new research shows vaccines alone might not be able to prevent future variants and researchers say the virus is less likely to spread and mutate when people wear a mask and stay socially distant. but the report concludes the best way to stop the spread is to vaccinate as many people as possible as quickly as possible. now, this is just san francisco seeing a rise in hospitalizations. all 9 bay area counties are as well with

9:05 am
since last week. the county was at 120 patients on july 22nd. and this week it is that 168. that's why public health officials are urging people to mask up in certain places regardless of vaccination status karen see has been moving indoor gatherings with friends outdoors, try to keep it more like. >> let's gather in someone's backyard just to make a little bit more comfortable for everybody because everyone's, you know, on a different spectrum of how comfortable they feel being indoors. and as of this month, data shows alameda county is seeing an increase in covid testing. meanwhile, vaccinations have been down since june reporting from fremont. gayle ong kron 4 news. >> to the south bay now where a coalition of nonprofits is finding success in vaccinating homeless people against covid as kron four's. rob fladeboe reports the vaccine was made available at one of the largest homeless camps in san jose. >> enjoying the shade of a tension feeling good about finally being vaccinated

their 4 game set. chris bassitt was on his game. he pitched 7 shutout innings. bottom of the 60 gets brandon marsh down on strikes wow. very impressive. let's go on the 8th chapman drills. one straight away to center. well hit. and that is gone. absolutely impressive. that's all they would need a shut out. the angels to zip. and in back to back games. in fact, game 00:00am tonight and both died today, span should be feeling pretty good after both teams made some moves before the mlb trade deadline and good moves. and for that matter, san francisco made a huge flash trading for all-star chris bryant just before the buzzer and bryant is exactly what the giants were looking for. he's one of the best hitters that was dealt. more importantly, he can play all over the field. i think the look to use him in the outfield. the giants didn't even have to give up any major prospects either for the half-season rental san francisco also welcomes back a familiar face lefty tony watson returns to the giants
9:26 am
in exchange for 3 pitching prospects. now across the bridge. it lookh like the a's are all in for 2021 postseason run oakland already landed starling marte a they added some more quality a lineup. both josh harrison and yon gomez from the washington nationals. we'll head to the east bay with harrison a former all-star into 96 hitter being the tool of the trade, the athletics 3 prospects from you know that. they know what it's all about. they've been through before they did. >> you get motivated by that. with guys like that. you know, those guys play for. so you know, worried about them moving organizations when you're coming to a team that's in a pennant race because that's what it's all about for guys like >> i'm looking forward to october baseball here in the bay. well, the first week of 49 ers training camp is in the books and all eyes remain on the quarterback competition or rather, i guess non competition. if you ask head coach kyle shanahan. he said earlier this week that jimmy garoppolo is the forty-niners starter not trey lance for now we'll see how long that lasts
9:27 am
noticeably absent the star defensive end. nick bosa shanahan said he was taking a planned maintenance stay since he's fresh off that acl injury. bosa made some headlines when he said the post-practice media session that he is not vaccinated and it's uncleas if he ever plans to get vaccinated shanahan talk today about balancing the team's interest and personal choices. we pressured anyone i think would have been a lot harder if. >> we had a. a big group of guys not doing i think that more of worry. >> and then, you know, couple, you know, about a week up to camp. we've got pass 85%. i know. i think it's fire last night i think it's 5. and in those 5 are not going to pressure. it's tough of water. team didn't have to do things different. but with the small mountain guys doing it and things i think are a lot tougher on them.

9:43 am
9:44 am
>> welcome back. 9.44. here on this saturday morning. and dave spahr has your weather forecast. dave, how long is this dog going to stick around for us you know, is having a lot of trouble getting out there because like you go about a 1000 feet in the atmosphere in the you know, guess what, it's in the 80's up there. so it's kind of hard to get some buoyancy to get this air to rise. also very dry up there as we need some mixing and buoyancy. so it may
9:45 am
take a little longer in order to do that. but given our 2 we're already starting to see the shrubbery show up here, but still not yet to the east bay shoreline is still kind of covered in all of that, which we see run the golden gate bridge too temperature. check. how are going right now. most readings in the 60's over a good chunk of the bay 73 for antioch here up to the north bay, mostly 60's 59 santa rosa at this hour. so our players still much the same back side of this high. so we continue to see the flare up of those showers and thunder showers in the sierra. they have a red flag or i'm i'm so used to saying that a flash flood watch at this point. it probably won't see one tomorrow because it's not going to be as active that low's going help clean things out a little bit from their perspective. but the drought continues. even though all these monsoon rains been working their magic in the 4 corner states back in the home front. it's ugly. as you can see, exceptional over good 2 thirds of the bay area. it's only the peninsula that are in the extreme category and a good chunk of the south bay. but everybody else. it's
9:46 am
exceptionally bad. all right. for a future cast. we go forward and look at the monsoon getting pushed to the east. there's a little bit of a bump temperature wise we expect will call that he pump for thursday and then temperatures retreat. little bit as we finish off a week into the weekend. again compliments of this low and we don't see any rain coming our way. but it also shuts off the monsoon which can provide dry thunder showers. more perspective. for fresno. one of 6 bakersfield today. big bear about a 70 66 coming in for san francisco and checking out your 4 zone forecast golden gate park about 64 63 daly city pacifica 6563 for half moon bay matching this with now some 70's off to the bay shoreline on the peninsula, heading south foster city 77 palo alto at 8081 also for redwood city. 75 coming in for mountain view in the south bay, most readings in the 80's. but you get inland near they start to pop a little bit los gatos and the morgan hill both coming in about 89 to the cupertino 83
9:47 am
back to the 70's along the east bay they're going to be flirting with some lower 80's in the next week. here. lower 90's. meanwhile, for tri valley today, 89 coming in for walnut creek. looks like 90 for conquered 66 for berkeley. 69 for delay hope and he should 80 to 92 antioch. by the way. and 93 up the vacaville. so some hot spots still to be felt today 81 for santa rosa. more 80's heading down south. now the 7 a game plan here is we'll keep some scattered clouds. this is the morning fog and drizzle business. we've been talking about clearing out a little bit early into the weekend. it's thursday. we see a heat spike, get to about 95. he pump excuse me. and then the to retreat a little bit in the following weekend. well. >> well, it's the longest-running women's only tennis tournament and starting monday. it's going down at san jose state university mubadala silicon valley classic will feature a number of top ranked american players and grand slam champions. this
