way underneath the bridge tonight. and so far, mostly clear skies that will change. we've seen a couple of patches of fog trying to form now that will likely do so overnight tonight. it's tomorrow morning. and so changes coming our way. and i think like it, too. as we get ready for the weekend, we've got a cold front far. northern california bring some showers in the northern part of the state you get toward president city up in the shasta, some snowflakes in that direction. but otherwise we're left for the most part clear so far we have felt the effects, though, that sea breeze that on shore flow continuing outside. in fact, some of those winds now gusting over 30 miles an hour in the past a few hours here in the san francisco downtown august in the 31 sfo gusting over 20 miles an hour. even oakland, almost 20 mile an hour still breezy in spots this evening. temperature wise got a very mild, 60 degrees in santa rosa. cooler to san francisco to win the 53. it is 58 in san jose but clear skies there. 56 a little more right now. and 57 in fremont. but on
stepping outside this evening, grab the jackets. a little got a little bite to it. still out there. so we're still waiting for that ridge really build in. so the numbers hovering in the 50's, but we still do have some wind out there and then likely going to see some patchy fog forming along the coastline overnight tonight into early tomorrow morning. and that will bring with it some cool fog along the coast. but boy, other places going to be warming up very, very nicely. how about 79 degrees in san jose? 81 in the napa valley for a high on friday. 82 degrees in concord and 82 degrees in livermore. we'll have more on the rest of your weekend forecast. coming up in a few minutes. thank you, lawrence. well, today, president biden morning the sobering milestone of 1 million american deaths because of the covid pandemic. >> president biden ordered flags at the white house and other public buildings to fly at half-staff today. he also talks with world leaders at a covid summit today and called on congress to provide billions of dollars more a testing. and for treatment. john hopkins university

know to even keep an eye out for it to watch for if they're at their second job, maybe perhaps telling older sibling or their caretaker. hey, keep an eye out for any any of these sorts of symptoms in my child. they wouldn't know that. >> they wouldn't know that. and i think that is unfair and unreasonable to do to a child or to any parent out there who just wants to keep their child safe. supporters say teens in california already have the ability to consent to other medical treatment like birth control and mental health care. other states like rhode island, south carolina, oregon, washington, d.c., and alabama allow teens to get vaccinated without parental approval. >> of course we want kids to feel comfortable talking to their parents about vaccination or are hundreds of other important issues in life. we absolutely want that. that's not the reality of the world. >> for every child, the bill now heads to the assembly floor for approval in that house before it can reach the governor's desk at the state capitol. ashley zavala kron. 4
