10:12 pm
violent crime in their history. that's something that we also should be taking into account in assessing the risk that they pose to the public. jenkins predecessor, be dean also instituted a risk based process for requesting no bail detention. but jenkins said the analysis was flawed putting too many chronic and violent offenders back on the street pending trial. the prior simply had a focus on eliminating cash bail, but not making a lawyer's conduct. the analysis correctly on whether or not someone posed a public safety risk such that we needed to take a different course with that person. but in a statement, san francisco's public defender says jenkins tharacterization of this new policy is limited is disingenuous as the stated policy is both broad and vague. already we have a number of misdemeanor attorneys who each have a handful of cases where the prosecutors sought pretrial detention most concerning da jenkins policy will increase

weekend. dare we say the weekend laurent's. yeah. about that. not too far away now, but the monsoon has started make its way back into the state. we saw that last night again this afternoon, the thunderstorms started to pop up. you can see, especially in the desert, some big thunderstorms rumbling through there. and so watching for the possibility of flash flooding, a plan head to southern california, maybe palm springs and those areas. but watch out some big time storms rolling through. look at storms moving through right now. a lake havasu city in the park or and further south. you can see the storms had along. 95 there as well. but you better watch out this entire area tomorrow continuing under a flash flood watch is we're likely going to see return the monsoon tomorrow. those pop-up thunderstorms in the afternoon could give rise to some flash flooding. some debris flows got to watch out. if you're traveling in the deserts, the next couple of days. all right. it's all about the fog around the bay area right now. the surge, low clouds moving on shore right now. moving into the bay as we speak and a very thick low layer fog
10:40 pm
settling in for the night. you can see it over san francisco right now. some of the buildings disappearing in the fog tonight and that drizzle already showing up. the good news is the air quality has been fantastic today. another great day with that on shore breeze and that fresh air, a green everywhere you go. and that's what it's going remain. i think for tomorrow, too, as it looks even the high pressure of trying to build in a just can't quite get here. there's a trough of low pressure developing along the coastline. here it is. and that's just enough to deepen. the marine layer brings that nice fresh air ramp up all that fog moving on shore. now tonight. yeah, it's going to be pretty gray in spots overnight tonight into early tomorrow morning. that drizzle along the coastline, measurable amounts are probably out toward the beaches to so watch out for that. really probably going to see as much for hundreds, maybe 5, 100's of an inch of precipitation along the coastline and some of the weather spots. so, yeah, that's a pretty significant drizzle event. i think temperature-wise, let's going to be a big break down again. we've seen that's a really the better part of august. now you've got the cool sea breeze along the coastline. you get
10:41 pm
the fog in these temperatures. now, most 30 degrees cooler out toward the beaches in the 50's and the getting close to 90 inland. but these temperatures kind of backing off just a bit. so about 89 degrees in little more about 89 in concord, about 76 degrees in napa. all right. as we look toward the end of the month, if you can believe that we're getting ready for september, these temperatureso looking to cool down as we get into saturday and sunday running a little bit below the average then may be warming up just slightly as we head toward tuesday and wednesday of next week. but you have that fog could be something else. the good news is i'm starting to look at some long range forecast with worry about el nino la nina conditions and drought conditions. we may start to see return to least el nino neutral conditions, maybe possibly el nino conditions by late next winter will see what happens. it it. that means we might get back that rain that we so desperately need could least late-season. yeah. thank you. okay. >> still ahead, we're going to tell you, but a dream trip for a little boy from the east bay who is fighting a rare cancer. what his family says would
