6:06 pm
documents, legal documents, financial documents, and adoption papers in case a high court ruling does to marriage what they did to roe v. wade. >> it is 100% not an overreaction. it's essentially at this point only a matter of time before they come up. i mean if roe v. wade can go down, anything after it can come down. anything you've heard about potential conflicts down the road and fights down the road is 100% true. it's all on the table at this point. >> reporter: dan was married in mormon idaho, where if it weren't for a supreme court win, his home state never would have validated his marriage. now he faces the very real threat that idaho and other conservative states could and likely will be the first to get on board efforts to take away what dan was given by the marriage ruling years ago. >> it's terrifying. it's such a level of uncertainty that i haven't felt in so long.
6:07 pm
we have built a life together, and so i honestly don't know what that looks like if it isn't recognized anymore. i mean that sounds like it would completely upend everything we have built together. >> reporter: and it would upend already tense family dynamics for dan. >> it's hard knowing that obergefell could be overturned knowing that my father would probably celebrate and be happy. i'd like to think that we've made so much progress in our relationship since the day we were married and he wasn't there. if we end up moving backwards on this front, it almost kind of legitimizes though hurtful feelings he had towards our relationship. >> reporter: so what does dan ask supporters of efforts to delegitimize his family? dan says listen to this. >> i would just ask them to stop
6:08 pm
and think. think critically about what they want to do to other people, to stop and ask themselves if what they're doing is really going to bring happiness to themselves and to the people that it's going to affect. it's going to cause hurt and pain, and it's not going to make the world a better place. it's going to make the world a worse one. >> reporter: and if the high court does what dan fears, he says he'll fight. >> we fight or we lose. so it's time to fight. >> reporter: so speaking of that caia,, governor gav ong m some others are following suit. but if the high court ends marriage equality and sends the issue back to the states to deal with, we're going to be back in a situation of that patchwork of rights covering the country once again, meaning that if dan wants to go home to idaho to see his family, his marriage will end at the state line. >> won't be recognized in that state.
6:09 pm
>> we've seen the second amendment change. we've seen abortion change. today we saw prayer in school change. so who knows what's next? >> conservative supreme court, and this is what is happening. >> these issues are coming to light again. >> thanks, reed. still ahead on kpix 5 and cbs news bay area, a san francisco police officer arrested. what he's accused of doing that landed him behind bars. plus, two oakland police officers on leave after a deadly crash connected to a sideshow. what investigators just announced. and a popular bay area amusement park set to close. what's next for california's great america? the past few days, the fog has been almost impossible to shake along the coast. that lerlayer.lowtoay peeng ou that is going to spread across the bay tonight. cooler temperatures for everyone later this week in the first alert forecast.

1976, part of my childhood. the drought forcing millions of acres of forest to be closed to tourists this summer. here's a look at the land that's impacted. it is privately owned by sierra pacific industries. a lumber company in shasta county. they're closing the forest due to the high fire danger. roads going through them will remain open. the closures start july 1st. sierra pacific also closed its forest in 2020 for the exact same reason. paul, unfortunately that's just our reality now. >> it is. we had a couple fires today, one in the santa cruz mountains. >> every day. >> a couple in the north bay, one of which closed down a lane on 101 for a little while. it's this type of weather pattern where it's hot inland and those are conducive conditions even without really gusty winds for a fire to get started. that latest fire on the east side of 101 in marin county has now run into marshland, but some of the smoke as drifted away. let's take a look at the big picture pattern. some changes on the horizon.
6:16 pm
the hot weather inland is about to change as high pressure in the upper levels of the sm atmosphere is going to shift away from us. the marine layer is going to be allowed to expand vertically, spread farther inland, and the storm system moving towards the pacific northwest is going to kick in a stronger onshore breeze. it's going to be gradual changes, but it is going to happen over the course of the next several days. right now, it is still warm to hot inland. 88 in concord. 91 degrees in livermore. 77 in san jose and santa rosa. 60s around the bay. the fog is hanging out along the coast is going to try to spread across the bay and into the inland valleys by early tomorrow morning. don't think it's going to have too much success. there's going to be some fog in those valleys but not going to be a real deep layer and should dissipate quickly. plenty of sunshine for the rest of the day. temperatures mostly starting off in the 50s early tomorrow.
6:17 pm
that's where we are supposed to be this time of year. those temperatures are going to warm up quickly inland. by lunchtime, already going to be in the upper half of the 80s in fairfield and antioch. close to 80 degrees in san jose. temperatures top out around the bay and along the coast by early afternoon. right around 60 along the coast. mid-70s for oakland. all those numbers close to normal. farther inland, you get a couple more hours to warm up. temperatures going to hit the upper 80s to around 90 inland in the north bay. upper 80s in ■the santa clara valley with a lot of 90s inland in the east bay. so another hot day but those temperatures are going to start ramping downward wednesday and thursday, and we will reach those below average temperatures as we finish off the workweek on friday. we've got an adoptable dog in this evening's dog walking forecast. the dog is available in the east county animal shelter in dublin. i'm put a link on social media if you want to see her adoptable information. a little bit too warm for much outside time tomorrow. dublin, mid to upper 80s. other parts of the east bay significantly hotter than that.
6:18 pm
closer to sunset the better time for dog walking. fire danger index is going to be elevated especially in the afternoon. it's not off the charts. 0 to 10 scale, we're going to top out around a 5 in most locations. the same conditions we've had the past several days, we're going to see those again tomorrow. inland parts of solano county, contra costa, and alameda counties going to have the most significantly elevated fire threat. plenty of the north bay as well. we're going to have to keep an eye on everything across the bay area even once our temperatures do back down, which they will by the end of the workweek and into the weekend. temperatures by saturday, sunday, and monday only in the low 60s in san francisco, around 70 for oakland with mid to upper 70s for san jose. mid to upper 70s also over the fourth of july weekend for the north bay, inland in the east bay, and along the coast it's going to be a cool holiday weekend with high temperatures only in the upper 50s. so feeling more like memorial day weekend really than the fourth of july.
6:19 pm
>> no kidding. >> which is appropriate because memorial day felt more like the fourth of july. >> right. well, the big question is the fireworks show. >> we'll keep an eye on it. if we're going to see any fog, it would be more low cloud cover than actual fog. so maybe they'll display it underneath that cloud base. >> thanks, paul. cbs evening news is coming up. >> here's norah o'donnell with a preview. >> good evening, ryan and liz, coming after kpix 5 news at 6:00, the breaking news about an amtrak train with more than 200 on board that toppled over after colliding with a dump truck on the tracks. we've got the reports of injuries as rescue efforts are now under way. that's tonight on "the cbs evening news." a's in new york. wimbledon has started. and what a terrific vacation for this golden state warrior
