start of the game. and you can see right there kind of an even mix with dodgers and giants fans heading into the game for game one of the series. game two is tomorrow. and that's not the only big event in the city as if the game is enough to attract big crowds. there's also fleet week today there was a parade of ships that put on quite a show for onlookers, and all of that, combined with tonight's warriors game will likely keep traffic thick. this is the scene on the approach of the bay bridge right now. we checked in about an hour ago, and it looks like now, traffic is a little bit heavier. doesn't look too bad right now because you can see the end of the line of the cars waiting at the toll plaza to get through your encouraged by the way to take public transit if you're heading into the city. communion barter both expanding service with trains running until midnight. and if you do drive keep in mind parking meters are set to special event rates. that's eight bucks an hour you'll be paying. and some drivers are paying as much as $100 for parking near oracle

6:02 pm
postseason matchup. let's just say this matchup meant to be. it's very fitting because both teams had have had really good, um regular seasons and good for the game to see those both of us compete in the playoffs. this is going to be an unbelievable way to kick it off. this series is going to be. a madhouse at both places. we knew that we were going to have to go through them and they're going to have to go through us to get to the world series. so, um, you know better better get it out of the way early. yeah, evan longoria said. you know, ideally, these two teams would meet later in the postseason, but that's how it shook down. keep in mind that when we say that these two teams are meeting for the first time in postseason history 131 year rivalry, but they just implemented the wild card game about a quarter of a century ago about 25 years ago, so they couldn't meet in the postseason. prior to that. on the mound for the giants will be young logan web he's been

6:04 pm
national league division series over who is the better team? there is one thing that giants fans and dodger fans can agree on. this is going to be a tough best of five series. it's all about the dodgers for me. i think it's gonna. be a great series, but in my heart with the dog, but the giants have a way of winning over fans even when they don't seem like they back the black and orange where you from los angeles. whoa wait a second. you're from where? los angeles, california and you're a giants fan. yeah you know, they're playing the dodgers. yeah while it may be tough, giants fans say when the series is all over, it will be the giants headed to the national league championship series and eventually, the world series. even if that means they have to go through the dodgers to get there. yeah they're tough, but i mean the giants. they kept up with them all season. they won the series against them, and hopefully these are the games. that really matter, so hopefully they're able to come out with what the w against the dodgers. well, this is the first official playoff matchup between the giants and dodgers twice once in 1951 and again in 1962, the dodgers and giants.
6:05 pm

6:09 pm
that comes at us. especially getting through this pandemic, so the more the merrier for us. returning to previous revenue is not necessarily something that were built for right now. and so you have to. you know, you might have to make people wait even if you have space, you know, and that's it's goes against human nature and the nature of our business. but in order to you know do what we do properly. sometimes you have to hold back a little bit all of this presenting the best reason so far for businesses to hope for a real upturn. we've seen a lot of, um, requests for company. happy hours, come back and in the coming weeks and months. which is a great sign. if people are coming back to work, though, there will be a lot of pop up food stamps and trucks. best advice, be patient and kind to the vendors, servers and, of course each other. tom vacar ktvu, fox two news. we're in county announced a new easing of its mask mandate in certain indoor settings with fewer than 100. people and exemption could apply to gyms, offices, religious meetings and college

6:42 pm
points, so wall street has been paying close attention to the debt ceiling drama playing out in washington. yesterday the senate did its part voting to avoid a default at least until december, but the house still has to act before october. 18th or things could get ugly congressional correspondent chad program reports from capitol hill. markets abhor uncertainty. washington's fight over the debt ceiling is something that wall street is watching. treasury secretary janet yellen predicted doom for the economy of congress doesn't act by october 18th. it would be disastrous for the american economy for global financial markets. and for millions of families and workers whose financial security would be jeopardized by delayed payments. the us flirted with the default a decade ago, congress hiked the debt ceiling before the deadline, but the drama spooked investors. standard and poor's downgraded the credit rating of the federal government because of congress's bumbling response. the u. s is triple a rated it
6:43 pm

barrier whether a lot to talk about this little update first we're talking about the possibility from showers for tonight into early tomorrow morning and then eventually fire danger that shows up in the five day forecast in a fire weather watch. let's show you the highest from today, though you probably noticed that chill in the air. temperatures have been cooling off line of 71. it's not cold but at least cooler compared to what has been over the past few weeks. it seems like san francisco 60 at santa rosa 70 degrees today, one of the cooler days the week temperatures will be warming up a little bit into the weekend. although you can see by sunday breezy conditions by the afternoon hours, but especially by. sunday night, and that is our next concern that is related to a fire danger now showing you this a satellite in the radar. look at this green offshore. there is the chance we could have some scattered showers. move in. we're thinking later on tonight, say after 10 o'clock into early tomorrow morning till about three or four o'clock tomorrow morning. so here is that the shower coverage? just offshore, so you probably noticed the clouds moving in. the showers can be moving in overnights not going to be a weekend washout.
6:49 pm
in fact, this weekend will be mostly sunny for like 90% of the two day period today, stretch even into monday as well. forecast highs. rather actually current temperatures look at the forecast highs a little bit right now. some fifties and sixties conquered checking in 62 degrees. it is windy and a few spots. you can see oakland that's a wind gust of up to 29. miles an hour, and some more reports here. not as strong on these panels for sfo hayward in san jose. here's a live pmr looking out toward the ball park in san francisco. of course, they're the big game happening right now the giants and the dodgers and we just have some clouds moving overhead. here's the plan with the cloud cover tonight. more clouds expected. you can see what happens, though. this is one o'clock tomorrow morning. some scattered showers, especially near the coastline, probably decreasing chances as you do work your way inland that chance and 23 or four o'clock tomorrow morning, and then those clouds move out rapidly. leaving us with mostly sunny skies tomorrow afternoon. so this is the guy that could produce a few showers at least overnight tonight into early
6:50 pm
tomorrow morning, this area of high pressure this returns this weekend, somebody's call it a nice weekend temperatures in the sixties and seventies. our next concern is this guy this area of low pressure it's developing up to our north. this will be dropping into a nevada. and this is the classic setup. we do not like to see this time of year and that is that northerly wind ramping up so fire danger will be a concern and we have a high wind watch toward the sacramento valley out toward the delta region monday morning in tuesday morning, and that is linked with the fire. danger that fire weather watch for us here in the bay area from 11 p.m. sunday all through monday until five p.m. tuesday for the north bay hills. solano county, east bay hills and the east bay valleys. that's something to watch closely and early next week that could soon turn into a red flag fire warning. highest forward tomorrow sixties and seventies. a touch warmer, maybe in your sunday forecast. but then, as you can see, here we are tracking. unfortunately the stronger winds by sunday night and into monday, especially for the berry hill's. all right. thanks
