and at football games just so kids can play football in peace without the threat of gunfire. >> reporter: the dynamites elite football and cheer is a nonprofit organization. it's designed to teach youth life skills through fundamental of football and sportsmanship. >> we're not going to allow these people, these individuals that bring guns to this environment to get away with this and stop these young people from participating in these activities. we will not allow them to do that. >> reporter: in jooakland, juliette good rich. just hours ago, the governor declared a state of emergency due to the spread of monkeypox. this will allow the state to get vaccines, which has been a big challenge the slow infections. there have been 786 cases of monkeypox in the state. more are in los angeles and san francisco. san francisco already issued an emergency declaration last week, which went into effect today citywide. and another day of long

taking advantage of some of the resources. >> community leaders say it's also important the point out monkeypox is not a sexually transmitted infection and that women and children can also get it throw close contacts. now to the weather. unusual burst of august rain. you can see it hitting our weather. paul higgin joining us now. it was actually kind of refreshing. >> yeah, it was nice, the shower activity without any cloud to ground lightning around the bay area. it's a combination of the monsoonal moisture that's been in place since late last week. there's a storm system in the upper levels of atmosphere, close enough to trigger the showers. one more cluster of showers is going to make a run towards the sonoma coast. about an hour or so, but it's been 45 minutes since that produced a cloud to ground lightning strike. not concerned about any lightning potential. the few showers that are left should be quieting down.
there has been plenty of lightning elsewhere, a lot clustered over the southern half of california. and other states are going face that threat with the monsoonal moisture in place. we just won't have to trigger to get it going in the bay area. trace amounts of rainfall so far today. exactly a trace for san jose and hayward. enough to wet down the roads. big winner, half-moon bay, .04. these numbers are not high, but considering it's the first day of august, it's strange to have any rain that's not dense fog and drizzle. that's back in the forecast tonight and tomorrow. take a look at the rest of the forecast for this first week of august coming up in a few minutes. any bit of rain is a welcome sight for fire crews and volunteers in lookout posts in marin county. this volunteer spent his day perched atop the mountain bear. he keep an eye out for fires.
when he spot one, he calls the fire crews to contain it. he said this happened with a small fire last year. >> i if spotted it at three acre instead of a third acre, there was wind from the east and it would have gone over the ridge and down into wood acre. and from wood acre, who knows. it's right next to the water shed. >> fisher uses an antique device that allows him to connect with another lookout spot on mt. tam and zero in on the exact location. to the north in siskiyou county, the sheriff confirms two people died trying to escape the fire in their car in their own driveway. the fire broke out friday and quickly exploded to become the state's largest wildfire so far this season. it now covers more than 55,000

kick. and these aren't things you have to talk him into doing. he loves playing football. >> with the red and gold report, i'm charlie walter. we're posting all the stories coming out of training camp in a special 49ers section on kpix.com. you can also nominate your choice for our superfan of the week. >> can't wait for it to start. still to come, not in our neighborhood. why there is so much opposition in the south bay to a plan to get the homeless off the streets. and just one signature away from becoming reality. sights where people can freely use illegal drugs could be coming to two bay area cities. rip out your lawn, put some green in your pocket. how a bay area drought rebate program has been working out. flash flooding leave a number of cars stranded. the cleanup in southern california after a weekend of wild weather.

and more brown lawns into green -- cash that is. julie garrett and her family qualified for the santa clara valley water rebate program. pays homeowners up to $3,000 if they remove their lawn. they replaced theirs with drought tolerant plants and added an alternative turf grass that requires very little water. >> now that it's established we probably have to water it probably once every two uniques next summer and not at all the rest of the year. >> garrett says the reason covered the cost of pretty much all of their materials. the program is so popular, rebate applications have nearly doubled since april. >> and southern california, too much water too fast led to big problems in the san bernardino mountains. 30 cars stranded along highway 38 leading to big bear after heavy rain washed debris on to the road. this is from the burn scar area
from the 2020 fire. all those cars have been removed. further north in the mojave desert, floodwaters buckled and damaged roads. the preserve is closed until further notice. live look outside of the golden gate bridge fresh off its little shower this afternoon. >> look at, that paul, no fog. >> i know. it will be back. >> that's pretty amazing. >> it will come back. >> i know, i know, but we rarely get to say that at 7:00. >> first day of fogust. did have a few showers, which is not normal for the month of august. we're tracking one last cluster of showers right along the coast of sonoma county. maybe will squeeze out a couple hundredths of an inch of rain. there have been a few splash and dash showers elsewhere, but things are quieting down, a trend that is going to continue as we head through the rest of the this evening. the last of showers fading off
the radar as we head towards 9:00 this everyone, and everything is dry by midnight. we'll see the fog developing along the coast, spreading the fog in land tomorrow morning. although i don't think it's going to be a huge deal for the morning commute. after that, clouds and sunshine for the rest of the day on tuesday. still going to see clouds overhead with that monsoonal moisture in police. the difference is, while we have to moisture we don't have anything in terms of a trigger to get thunderstorms or a shower going. back to a dry patch beginning tomorrow. noticeable humidity, though, still in place the rest of the week. it's not going to feel flat out sticky, but you're going to be able to tell as you head out the door. typical august temperatures in store the rest of the week. moisture shows up in brighter colors. you can see it's still in place and it's going to remain as we go through the rest of the week. thinning out by friday, but we're not going to lose it entirely for about the next seven to ten days. so any time a system gets close enough to us, it could trigger a few pop-up showers or
thunderstorms but anything cloud to ground lightning is showing up in the mountain over northern california or the high sierra. tomorrow, same locations and again on thursday. all that cloud to ground lightning avoiding the bay area. i don't think we're going to see more of those hit or miss showers the next couple days. the sun reemerged. temperatures in the mid 60s. still warm inland. 83 concord, 86 degrees in livermore. temperatures tonight will drop down to the 60s inland because of the amount of moisture in the air. the air doesn't cool off as much over night, so above average for the inland parts of the bay area. mostly 50s by the water and coast. high temperatures tomorrow, almost exactly normal. exactly our average high temperatures in oakland. a degree or two higher inland. mix of 70s and 80s down the peninsula with low to mid 80s for most of the santa clara
valley. temperatures in the east bay, mid to upper 80s, which is warm, but not unusual. the hottest spots reaching the low 90s, which is not that hot for early august. and mostly low to mid 80s for inland parts of the north bay, normally warm for august until you go parter and farther north where temperatures are likely to exceed 09 degrees. a little warmup kicks in wednesday and thursday. it's a few degrees' worth of a warmup. mid 70s for oakland. close to 70 san francisco. mid to upper 80s for san jose. also in the mid to up 80s for part of the north bay. hot spots, inland and east bay. low 90s before normal temperatures to finish the workweek and head into the weekend. i don't think we're going to see quite as much cloud cover as the monsoonal moisture goes out, but it's going to be a while before we lose it entirely.
