5:04 am
trees so far have sustained serious damage. one challenge in getting this fire under control , firefighters say is the rough terrain. it's making hard to slow the spread of those flames despite those prescribed burns. there are still a number of dead trees and other parts of yosemite still standing in that poses a risk to firefighters, not just if they ignite, but if they fall over, pam all right. thank you. james cal fire crews continued to make steady progress against the electric fire burning in the sierra foothills. that fire has burned seven square miles in amador and kill calaveras counties since it started on the fourth of july, no homes. have been damaged or destroyed. all evacuation orders have been lifted and most roads , including all of highway 49 have reopened. contra costa fire officials are asking everyone to stay away from a section of willow pass road in pittsburgh because of fire there. that fire started just last month in the pittsburgh marsh near the decommissioned power plant on the delta. it did create heavy

5:18 am
even the uber drive like we didn't park we took uber, but even that was more expensive. as opposed as the number of parking. the higher parking fee is due to the growing number of passengers who are now returning to the airport. after that big slowdown in air travel we saw during the pandemic, but that travelers right 18 to 25 is a big job. if you're there for a week, you're seeing a significant increase. but it is also likely that it's everything right. the flights are more the parking is more coupons. yes there are coupons. there are a lot of options but also you know, then you have to deal with delays and cancelations fan there's a lot but you can tell a lot of people are still traveling because the roads are light traffic has been really light. and uh oh. rosemary cease, um, fog behind jail. fog coming in. that's pretty right. yeah just inside the golden gate there that i know me, too. it's amazing. don't expect it to last. it is pulling through at the moment. but we are going to see this, he wrote and will be

5:49 am
picture. together with this one, because just look what it looks like. across the bay area heavy fog on the golden gate as we've been mentioning, but rosemary's been telling us. don't let this picture fool you. if you're away from the coast, it's still going to be pretty warm today. yes good morning, ali. we are seeing some of that. just enter the bay, but i don't expect it to stick around for very long. we are looking at the warm weather to continue for your afternoon temperatures. will range in the eighties for our basic communities. nineties in lynn, here's a look over the oakland estuary as we look towards the colosseum away there in the distance we do have the sun on the way the official sunrise right about 5 57. we'll go with partly cloudy to partly sunny along the coastline for today. um, mostly sunny for the rest of us. we do have a coastal flood advisory. it starts this evening at eight o'clock will expire at midnight. the king tides are back. and so are low lying areas are for our bayside communities and into the north bay could see a little bit of flooding. we do
5:50 am
have a high tide coming in this morning, but the advisory doesn't start until this evening. the evening high tide will be at 9 59 storm tracker to hear just a little bit of fog along the coastline inside the bay. we've got some drizzle out there this morning. can't see it's falling below the radar beam. but that compressed marine layer is very close to the ground, and that's why really hard to see the golden gate bridge this morning and half moon bay reporting visibility all the way down to about a quarter mile. so we do have some patchy, dense fog along the coast to deal with as well. 57 degrees right now in san francisco, mid fifties that have been bay upper fifties low sixties for the east bay shore you go inland temperatures didn't really drop off so much 66 right now, brentwood. 62 in concord into the afternoon sixties at the coast. 74 san francisco low to mid to upper eighties around the bay mid upper nineties for our inland communities, areas like conquered going to 96 in the north bay 94 in santa rosa. upper eighties over san jose, the giants game this evening we
