brand-new park in san francisco. this one has been a long time coming. the tunnel tops opens to the public on sunday, featuring 14 acres of parkland on top of the tunnels leading to and from the golden gate bridge. the park will have spectacular views of the bay, a children's play area, space for food trucks. planning for the park began in 2014. a ribbon cutting ceremony is scheduled for today at 10:00 a.m. before i get to the details on the actual weather, we have to start off with an important status update on the air quality for some of our inland east bay communities. that's asksmoke still coming of the fire this morning. we're looking past pittsburg. you can see it in the for foreground. you see the smoke coming out of the marsh from the fire, which has been going on for weeks now. we did a story earlier on in the newscast. they're doing all they can, but it is a difficult place to put the fire out. the smoke moves east.
7:18 am
if we track that on air quality, which is really the most important aspect of this now, you can see the last 15 minutes of it. plenty of smoke pulled downwind. we're looking at green dots for the bay, which is good quality. but east of pittsburg, over here, you can see the colors of more dcult te for this. tds t g neathe more, it gets pul f the valleys and back toward the hills. i'd put off the morning jog. if you can smell smoke, you know n you've been living with this the last several days. for a little perspective, there is the vantage point looking over the shoulder of mount diablo, toward the fire. you can see the breeze will stay fairly steady today, going from west to east. here's another view, a far more harmless part of the sky. the clouds in the south bay.
7:19 am
san jose, waking up the cloudy skies. you see it over the san mateo bridge, as well. this far north, you can see some breaks in it. this is low clouds in the immediate bay. northeast most everywhere else is waking up to sunshine. there is fog in the north bay. petaluma, visibility has been dou down to less than a mile all morning. give extra time here. instead of looking at fog on the ground to where the mid-level clouds are, south bay, there's yours. napa valley, the immediate bay. you can see why the san mateo bridge is in a gap there. perfectly lines up with what we were seeing. the clouds all melt back to the coast by the time we get to the late morning. more sunshine than anything else today. mid 50s now. we have a warmup today. some of us will be nine degrees warmer today than yesterday. that means it'll be mid ni90s f the warmer inland spots. south bay, 93 in morgan hill.
7:20 am
san jose, only go to 87. on the peninsula, redwood city goes to 81 today. the east bay shoreline, hayward to 78. east bay is low to mid 90s. few mid 90s the further inland you get. oakland goes to 74. san leandroleandro. 76. mid 90s for santa rosa. mid to upper 90s for mendocino and lake county. the seven-day forecast, this is the warmest day. san jose, go from the mid 80s today to low 80s for the rest of the seven-day. microclimates are going from the mid 90s to the mid to upper 80s. there was a peek of the map that shows us the 8 to 14 day, most likely warming up again after that. that's down the road a ways. >> you know, i always think it's fascinating how variable the weather is depending on kind of proximity to the bay.
7:21 am
>> yeah. that's what drives our microclimates more than anything else. that one opening in the coast through the golden gate changes everything for any location that can feel the influence of that onshore. >> 25, 30 degree swing right there. >> yeah. remarkable rescue played out on the sierra all thanks to a special collie. we have details on what is being described as a real-life lassie story. >> reporter: it's like a scene from a tv show. >> lassie! >> reporter: "lassie" aired on cbs for 17 seasons, and though there is no sign of a reboot, one dog in nevada county could be ready to take on the role. >> we think about the movie "lassie" and timmy in the well. >> reporter: in this story, it's not a brown collie named lassie. it's a black and white border collie named saul, who helped save his owner's life. the nevada sheriff's office was called in by cal fire to help with the search and rescue mission after a 53-year-old man
7:22 am
fell off a cliff in the tahoe national forest. >> he'd reported that he had fallen 70 feet, had broken ribs and a broken hip. >> reporter: he was calling on his cell phone? >> called 911 on his cell phone. >> reporter: the call dropped. search and rescue contacted the victim's friend, who pointed them toward the man's campsite. >> as our searchers got to the area and found his camp, it is only accessible on foot, they couldn't find him. they thought they could hear a voice, but they couldn't determine where the voice is coming from. so they spread out and started searching the area. >> reporter: that's when an unexpected helper joined the search. >> the way they described it, saul was jumping up and down and spinning around in circles. >> reporter: nevada county sheriff's deputy, sergeant hack, says first responders knew to pay attention. >> he ran about 20 feet away from them, stopped and looked back at them, and they took that as he was trying to lead them to the victim. >> reporter: saul did. the man was found with serious injuries and flown to a local
7:23 am
hospital in a chp helicopter, lucky to be alive. >> we're told the dog was given well-deserved treats for his efforts. sports is coming up next. here's a look at what we have for you. james wiseman in action. a tiger watch at st. andrews. plus, the san francisco giants did something they have not done in nearly 50 years. happy highlights are first up after the break.

7:26 am

7:27 am
the series against the als-leading astros this weekend. another rough round for tiger. he shot a 3 over 75 and missed the cut. didn't like that shot. but you would have thought he was winning the tournament on the emotional walk up 18. worthy of the final strides at the old course. woods said he thinks he may not be able to physically play when the open returns to st. andrews. as for the field, the weather was a factor for everyone, even the fans. tough day to wear a poncho. shot of the day, viktor hovland in the rough on 15. no problem. check this out. rolls in for eagle. he's like, i saw it go up, but did it go in? cam smith on 14. reads the green cover to cover. no! stop it. rolls it in for the eagle. >> look at this. >> add that to his six birdies, and you get a round of 64. the aussie is 13 under. he takes a two-shot lead into

there are no residual delays. six are dead in montana after a dust storm fueled by 60 mile an hour winds caused a pile-up. it happened on interstate 90 friday evening outside of harden. more than 20 vehicles were involved in the pile-up. video shows hundreds of tractor trailers, campers, and cars backed up for miles along two eastbound lanes. drivers say it was close to impossible to see the road with all the dust. first responders are w clear the wreckage. in the bay area, investigators are trying to figure out what went wrong when an amtrak tran slammed into a maintenance vehicle. it was on the tracks in oakland. a union pacific employee was using a front loader to clear debris from the tracks when a tram slammed into him. the operator was rushed to the hospital with serious injuries. a train passenger was also hospitalized. hazmat teams are cleaning up
7:35 am
hundreds of gallons of diesel fuel spilled in the crash. there are plans to shut down an oakland homeless camp that's been the site of many of fires, including one this week that sent a plume over the east bay. several rvs were burned. at within point, 880 was closed down. caltrans posted notices at the site. it plans to shut down the encampment by the first week of august. caltrans says it is cooperating with the city and alameda county to help the nearly 200 people living in the shelter. a midnight deadline has now passed for the santa clara county sheriff to step down or head to trial. the san francisco da's office is serving as the prosecution in the case against lori smith. she's accused of seven corruption-related acts, including allegations that she granted concealed weapons permits to donors and political supporters. smith was given a deadline to resign by last night or face trial where she could be forcibly removed. she has already said she will
7:36 am
not run for a seventh term. >> two candidates will face off in the november run-off to replace smith. palo alto police chief johnson and retired sheriff captain kevin jenson. now to the latest on the bay area covid surge. this map shows the counties seeing the biggest spikes over the last week, led by contra costa county. hospitalizations remain well below record highs, the test positivity rate is nearing 17%. as kpix 5's max darrow reports, that number probably doesn't tell the whole story. >> reporter: experts know we're in the midst of another covid surge in the bay area. since so many people are testing at home and don't report the results, a case count is no longer the best way to measure how much covid is spreading within the community. >> it's been a little over two weeks now, and mostly my lungs are still tight. >> reporter: andy just got over a bout with covid-19. he self-diagnosed with an at-home test kit after feeling
7:37 am
sick. >> a lot of people close to me who haven't gotten it these last two years have gotten positive in the last couple weeks. >> this is a major surge we're in right now. we have a lot of cases, a lot of transmission. not a great lock on what the numbers are in reality. >> reporter: dr. rutherford is an epidemiologist. he says there is primarily upside with at-home test kits, but the downside now is it is tough to get a true look at the case count. >> it's not as high as january and december earlier this year and last year, but i think it's close to that high. maybe 65%, 70% of the height. i think we have to really look at the wastewater surveillance to get a real understanding of the magnitude of the current surge. >> reporter: marin county and sonoma county have online portals for people to report at-home test results. across the bay area, most don't report their self-test results to county or state. >> i reported it to my physician.
7:38 am
i think within 24 or 48 hours. >> reporter: he doesn't know for sure where he picked it up. however -- >> the only places i was around people, around the window of when i had gotten it, was outside. >> reporter: a concert and a rally. some infectious disease experts say the ba.4 and ba.5 subvariants are so transmissible and immune evasive, they recommend masks indoors and at crowded outdoor events. >> even though it feels a little frustrating, i can see why wearing a mask outside right now wouldn't be a terrible idea. >> reporter: mostly better but still on the mend, his advice for anyone who gets sick? >> give yourself permission to rest. >> reporter: on the peninsula, max darrow, kpix 5. >> there are no mask mandates in the bay area right now, but the cdc says that should be on your mind, especially indoors. that's because according to cdc guidelines, all bay area counties classify as having high covid community levels. more than half of the country is in that same category. a new development in the effort to get monkeypox vaccines. san francisco health officials

7:40 am
san francisco police department's crime strategies division. and randy mann will lead the transition team. she spent over two decades with the da's office before joining the sheriff's office earlier this year. jenkins said in a statement, quote, i promised the public i'd restore accountability and consequences to the criminal justice system while advancing smart reforms responsibly. my management team will help deliver on that promise. several staffers left over from the beau former administration announced they're no longer with the da office. a similar staffing shakeup happened when he first took office. coming up, it is not certain -- it is certainly not the final frontier when it comes to craft beer, but this south bay brew is looking to bring back old memories. a san francisco woman is on a mission to keep local artists from leaving. what they're doing inside of a de-commissioned shipyard. don't forget to join us for a new 7:00 a.m. weekday newscast.

7:46 am
