once that clears. then warm to hot inland with triple digits potentially, monsoonal moisture with chance of thunderstorms. high temperatures for today are going to be warm. warmest day of the week: far, north bay under a heat advisory until night. tonight. be careful especially of you in the north bay in the mid 100s. warmest day of the week triple digits in a lot of places cooler at the bay although, for the bay, this is warm.
tomorrow things cool off slightly thanks to the monsoonal moisture that's coming in. we have a slight chance of thunderstorms and some dry lightning. it is going to cool off a bit but make things more humid. the cooling trend continues into the weekend with an increased onshore flow clearing the clouds out, sunny nice weekend only in the low 90s in those inland areas before things clear up by the beginning of next week and then we have a hot start to the beginning of next week. only the low 90s. that's a warm weekend! in the green for drivers on 101 near rohnert park near wilfred avenue. fine in both directions not much fog here but further south towards the tunnel, you will be dealing with a lot of fog. fog at the golden gate bridge. right now speeds in the green as you continue heading

after their plane went down near highway 267 yesterday morning. officials identified the pilot as 60-year-old kenneth surefy of carmichael. he reported having engine trouble about take-off from the tahoe/truckee airport. according to the sierra sun, the two male passengers are in critical condition. the faa is investigating. a dublin man died in an accident in the water. he was sucked under water by a pipe in the delta year stockton and drowned. juliette goodrich reports that his family is demanding that more be done to warn people about the hidden danger. >> reporter: carlos tovar was untangling a ski line when he was sucked under by an irrigation line in the delta. his wife and friends tried to pull him back on board. >> unfortunately, there was no amount of human power that could have overcome the force coming from that pipe. >> reporter: these irrigation pipes are scattered throughout channels in the delta near
agricultural land. they pump water out of the delta to crops. >> those pumps have a tremendous amount of force and thresucking in thousands of gallons of water and pumping it out into other areas. >> reporter: some of our waterways are use for recreation and for agriculture and in those areas, there are pumping stations. those are areas the public should not go into. but they have access by certain waterways. >> you can see it's an oddball manmade shape going up at an angle up on the bank so now that's a pipe. it doesn't matter whether that pipe is pushing or pulling water, it's a danger to you either way. >> i think that everybody anticipates it's safe out there. >> reporter: carlos and his family weren't off the beaten track. they were in a popular boating rders go. skiers >> carlos is more than 6 feet tall. best of 250 pounds. athletic man. the point, it was impossible -- the amount of force was more force than any human could have overcome once he was trapped in that pipe. it was impossible for him to
get out or for anyone to get him out. usually there's signage and enough warning to stay out, no swimming allowed. it goes unnoticed until an accident happens. the solution is it has to do with physically preventing this from happening by having grates on the papers. i fear this could happen again. >> reporter: who is responsible for these pipes? investigators say it depends where the pipes are. some are privately owned by farmers. but they are also governed by certain districts and entities who govern the waterways. those are questions that the family wants to have answered and soon so this doesn't happen again. juliette goodrich, kpix 5. time now 4:52. tour buses will lod by th homes by a sit

the rest of who live here all the time. >> reporter: the classic san francisco bay window victorian is the house of the tanners usthe rebook "fuller in "full house." it also has nonvictorian signs out from that neighbors begging for quiet. this is the time lapse video of folks double and sometimes triple parked on the streets to get their moment on social media. >> parking is hard to find. i have a car and so street parking is really difficult. >> reporter: this video was part of the reason the sfmta board voted to ban tour buses on this one-block stretch of broderick street between pine and bush. >> it's probably safer. get a lot of traffic through here. >> reporter: this is the second "full house" location to have tour buses banished. homeowners in the alamo square neighborhood home to the painted ladies won the same fight with sfmta a few years ago. tourists say they understand.
