5:20 am
of our east bay and north bay hills. this could give us a couple of lightning strikes. it will be possible and it's unfortunately coming up on two years and a day after the august 2020 lightning complex fires we saw from some of the lightning strikes there. doesn't look like it's going to be that big of an event but any time we see a chance of lightning we pay very close attention. we're also going to have hot temperatures to go along with that. we're starting out the week in upper 90s. 100 degrees on tuesday. 95 on wednesday and we're coming down by the end of the week, san francisco in the upper 70s for today and tomorrow, but then low 70s and eventually it will make it back to our usual 60s by the weekend. mike, you were looking at what's happening now, an update in oakland. >> the flashing lights obviously behind me, kari, still 880 at 66, just past the overcrossing, the flares still laid out here, two flatbed tow trucks, i saw

"today in the bay's" ginger conejero saab is live on the picket line. what are the mental health workers demanding? >> reporter: good morning, marcus and laura. you know, they're demanding more staffing to really keep up with
5:34 am
the need. they came to some sort of agreement on wages this weekend, but that wasn't enough to really come to a comprehensive settlement of sorts. we're outside the kaiser building here in san francisco on gary street. it's still quiet, a couple of people starting to set up, but that all is expected to change by 6:00 a.m. when the picketing will begin. negotiations came to a halt between kaiser and the union representatives psychologists, therapists and counselors and why the rest of the weekend was spent getting ready for the strike this morning. now that is expected to start at 6:00 a.m. kaiser and the union representing mental health professionals agreed on a wage offer but not that comprehensive settlement that would increase staffing, and consequently reduce patient wait times. that's what the union says this is about. new mental health clinicians to keep up with increasing dempetr

5:37 am
if you were vaccinated as a child, you should be protected for life. happening today, the san francisco police department will hold a virtual town hall in an effort to be transparent about a recent officer-involved shooting. the incident happened august 6th when officers tried detaining a suspect near 16th street and south van ness avenue. a short chase on foot took place leading to shots being fired. police say the suspect hid behind a car, kept shooting at officers. no one was hit by a bullet, but the suspect was treated for a non-life-threatening injury. the department will provide more details this afternoon at 3:00. new this morning, as schools across the bay area start classes even, doctors are sounding the alarm about kidsrd tobacco study currently more than 2.1 million students across america are using ecigarettes. thousands are also vaping. from 2016 to 2020, they say that there was more than 73% increase
5:38 am
in kids using ecigarettes. as one doctor explains, ecigarettes can damage kids' lungs and brains. >> exposing a developing brain, which is what preteens and teens have to high doses of nicotine contained in ecigarettes leads to addiction very quickly. these devices can be very potent in their addictive capacity. when that happens in a developing brain, anyone of any age can get addicted quickly. >> the doctor adds kids who use ecigarettes are four more times likely to try traditional cigarettes and three times more likely to become addicted to nicotine. the american lung association and the ad council are launching a new campaign to encourage parents to talk to their kids about the issue. 5:38. climate change could increase lightning in california and soon spark nor wildfires. a recent study predicts lightning strikes nationwide will increase 12% for every degree celsius of global warming
5:39 am
and ard coulding to the u.s. forest service, 40% of wildfires in the west were caused by lightning between 1992 and 2015. this data comes as tomorrow marks two years since three massive lightning fires sparked fires, you might remember seeing this in the skies during the early morning hours of august 16th, this is of 2020, hundreds of lightning strikes started several fires. they merged to become the czu, scu and lmu lightning complex fires. more than 846,000 acres burned. meteorologist kari hall is tracking this dangerous heat that's headed our way this week as well. always concerning, kari. >> it is. we are under a microclimate weather alert due to the excessive heat coming our way. also another concern toward the middle of the week, what caused the lightning strikes two years ago was the search of monsoon moisture. we're going to see more monsoon moisture coming in. this map shows the green where there is a high amount of mid
5:40 am
level moisture and then where we see it more clear, that's some drier air, so we do see that green starting to come back our way as we head toward the middle of the week, most of it staying to the east, but as we go toward wednesday evening, there will be one plume of moisture moving through the east bay and to the north bay, not a lot of rain associated with it, but there may be enough energy in the atmosphere especially combined with the high heat that we could see some lightning strikes once again coming two years and one day after that big complex of lightning that we had in 2020. so this will be very concerning, we'll be watching it very closely, as it could possibly spark some new wildfires, even just one lightning strike would be bad for us. we're going to see temperatures headed for the upper 90s and even near 100 degrees for our hottest spots inland. we'll talk about temperatures tomorrow and when we get a cooldown, that's coming up. mike has a look at what's happening at the nimitz. >> the nimitz moving much better now. didn't take long for to us get
