>> that is the most troubling aspect of the next 40 hours. take a look at the map over my shoulder. it shows you where the relative humidity was this afternoon a little after 5:00. just setting the stage for how medically different it is going to be tomorrow. we get ourselves oriented, numbers ranging from the 60% range to the lowest of around 30%, there is even some green on the map. i will send this forward that now, we have not started the red flag warning yet. watch overnight. we go ahead to tomorrow, at 5:10. you can see a huge difference. some of these are single-digit readings, we are lucky to be in the teens at no space places. strong wind makes the headlines. the strong wind will dry out the vegetation, which is already very dry, from a very dry season that we have had. that is really the number one factor. look at the wind, it is already windy in santa rosa. that's not the offshore wind, that's picking up. this will get us to sunday morning.
look at that 34 mile-per-hour gust. look at this from mount helen's. and we probably won't notice a lot down here. this is very familiar. this is way the way all of the big offshore wind events tends to go. a spotlight on the first wave of offshore wind, there's a 34 mile-per-hour gust over mount st. helena with wind speeds down in the teens were most of us live. we do this sunday and monday. the other story is the warm up and the heat advisory for the entire bay area starting at 11:00 tomorrow, not expiring until seven clock monday. this includes the city and the immediate day, which is important. that is going to be unique. here the daytime high temperatures from today, oakland was heavy was 82, san jose was 84, we advance these numbers into tomorrow. we see where we go fromhere, 74
today, 90 tomorrow, santa rosa, livermore, you will be in the one hundreds tomorrow, it is hot. but you can handle that a little more than a lot of these other locations. look at that 12-degree warm up. the other issue, is the smoke going to come back? that depends heavily on how the fires behave. and the atmosphere is going to be moving. here is the best information that we have at this point. the deeper the shade of red, the higher the concentration of smoke into monday. that came from the creek fire. depending on how that hips, the wind will be bringing that smoke right to us on monday. that's why we see the air- quality forecast going downhill, as we get into monday. keep your fingers crossed on that smoke. forecasting is an art form and we are doing our best. that is the way it looks at this
point. overnight low temperatures are in the lower to middle 60s with daytime high temptress, we've covered that. a noticeable jump in heat, the question is how long we stay there. the answer is, for a while, certainly into the next week. by the end of this next week there is some relief. but get ready for an early autumn heatwave unfortunately. >> esports settling in, we've got this much football, at about this much baseball. the giants have been busy
happens. a three run walkoff home run from trent grisham. the giants ended up with a split on a double header. they play cooper out on the injured list with a shoulder strain. jeff samardzija ended his five- year run with the team. he pitched three innings last night, in his first start since early august august. he was not going to have a role in the playoffs. >> scooting off into the sunset, the giants fan favorite announced his retirement today after 14 seasons in the big leagues. he was released last month, but will always be remembered at his key member of the world series teams in 2012 and in 2014. they know that they are in the playoffs, it is all about the seating now as they try to lock it up, that
second seed. a's and mariners, game one, up 1-0 in the sixth. j.p. crawford line one, good enough to drive in a game tying run. and look at the body language of the dugout. another tough out, another extra inning ballgame where they ended up on the short end of it. 1 yard in a four run inning, game 15-1, game number two is in process. ed orgeron, mississippi state in red. j costello just took over, going for his ac record, 623 yards and five touchdowns. for the bulldogs, a two touchdown underdog. the first
lsu loss is november 2018 and new england tomorrow, six- point underdogs. 49ers covid-free to have point favorites. >> burn, i said that about every turf field back then. i love these young guys, they are little more subtle than we were. asphalt with horrible golf carpeting laid on top, that's basically what we had before. pittsburgh, cincinnati, houston, they were the worst of all time here but new york was right on up there. >> i don't think he likes the
turf. did you know that oakland has a professional soccer team? they probably call themselves the oakland roots. they try to wean they try to win a league title, they are in michigan for a tournament, i got a taste of a spirited practice before they left town. >> in makes me happy as soon as i step on the field. all smiles. >> as you look at the logo, what does oakland roots mean to you? >> it means culture, it means love, it means unity, it means resilience. oakland has always been resilient. everyone who grows up in oakland is resilient. >> we want to see a team that expresses themselves on the ball, and they score goals, when they win games.
we had one goal, that's too win the championship. oakland deserves it, the fans deserve it, this is what we are going to do, this is what the fans are going to do. >> try to win this championship, they want to win this championship, in the next year they move up to a different level. they are so good, they are moving up to the usl championship league. >> it is a good plan and a good goal. thank you. >> coming up, demonstrators flood the streets of san francisco with a powerful response to the staggering number of hate crimes against one bay area community. >> if the senate does the honor of confirming me, i pledge to discharge the response abilities of his job to the best of my ability. >> the clock is officially taking on the race to fulfill that supreme court seat, a rush
it is my honor to nominate one of our nation's most brilliant and gifted legal minds to the supreme court, judge amy coney barrett. >> for the third time in four years, president trump has announced a nominee to the us supreme court, this time to fill the seat left vacant after ruth bader ginsburg staff. his pick as expected, judge amy coney barrett.
conservatives are praising her nomination, democrats are concerned about the 6-3 conservative majority. who is she? a circuit judge on the us court of appeals, for that, she was a law professor at notre dame and a clerk for antonin scalia. if confirmed, the mother of seven would be the first woman with school age children to serve on the supreme court. camilo joins us from the white house, with what is shaping up to be a supreme battle in congress. >> before the political fight, president trump highlighted her achievements, including with education, with her career, and her personal life, she was here with her sevenchildren, including two of them adopted from haiti, one with special
needs, beyond her personal life it is her conservative views on abortion, immigration, and gun rights most appeal to the president and republicans. president donald trump announcing who he hopes will be the next supreme court justice. >> she is a woman of unparalleled achievement, towering intellect, sterling credentials and unyielding loyalty to the constitution. >> the 48-year-old appellate judge and notre dame law professor is a conservative mother of seven and a former law clerk for antonin scalia. she would be the fifth woman to sit on the supreme court. >> if the senate does the honor of confirming me, i pledge to discharge the responsibilities of this job to the very best of my ability. >> the nomination comes amid strong backlash from democrats, who believe republicans should wait, and allow the winner of
the election to fill a vacant seat. which mcconnell is pushing forward. >> we have an obligation under the constitution, should we choose to take advantage of it, to advance. >> delegates are unlikely to prevent her confirmation, hoping to rally voters. >> everything america believes in and stands for when it comes to issues, like healthcare and labor rights, and lgbtq rights, women's rights, judge amy kony barrett stands against all of that. >> judge amy coney barrett is only 48 years old, she can change the balance of the court for years to come, because she is only 48 years old, people believe she could be on the bench for about 30 years, that is a long ways to go if she is confirmed. >> the republican national
committee says president trump has picked and especially exceptionally qualified constitutionalist. she is someone who recognizes the proper role of the supreme court justice is to interpret the constitution as written. on the other side of the political divide, senator harris said with the next justice set to determine the fate of texans for those with pre-existing health conditions, and reproductive health options, i will continue to fight on behalf of the people and strongly oppose the nomination. >> that echoes the sentiment of her running mate joe biden. vote like your healthcare is on the ballot, because it is. it affects our everyday lives, and the constitution was designed to give voters a voice on who makes those decisions. the senate should not act until after the american people select their next president and the next congress, americans
deserve to be heard. joe biden was also in the content campaign trail where he addressed us mayors in a virtual conference and assure them as president he would offer support in helping to respond to issues from racial injustice, protest, and follow- up from the pandemic. >> we are dealing with four historic crises all at once, a once in a century pandemic that has claimed over 200,000 american lives. a devastating economic recession. a long overdue reckoning on racial justice and a change on climate ravaging countries all across the country. not one of those crises should have a partisan dimension. i really mean that, not a single one of them. >> 90 minutes after making his supreme court announcement, president trump was headed for that battle grand state of pennsylvania, he went to the podium and harrisburg, supporters chanted fill that
seat. >> number one in her class. the professor, one of the most respected people said the greatest student he's ever had, that's very good, that's a little better than biden, wouldn't you say?
