of a vaccine mandate has been met with resistance by republican leaders, governors say those who are still skeptical of the vaccine won't be convinced by the government, making it mandatory if they want to keep their job and i'm trying to overcome resistance, but the president's actions in a mandate hardens the resistance. the distrust is with government. this enhances the distrust. the president's order requires businesses with more than 100 employees. wire proof of vaccination or weekly testing. federal employees and contractors don't have the option of just getting tested. they must get vaccinated. republicans say the mandate is unconstitutional and they're already preparing lawsuits. regis overreach of federal authority and as we see what these rules are, we will be able to know exactly how we will be able to challenge them in court. the push from the white house is its latest effort to get the delta surge under control, which is currently responsible for about 150,000 cases. and 1500 deaths

this little thing that's good looking stuff, so it's early, but that could bring us a little bit of sprinkle activity or something. as we get into saturday and sunday, i'll show you that on the model. the story around here today was mostly sunny and warmer by a good 56 degrees and some in some places. you see the fog out there now is you're looking at, um that's emeryville looking. yeah, that must be emeryville looking out towards san bruno gap. that's where the fog's coming in. you can see the fog kind of getting pinched down when it does that, you know, tomorrow is going to be another warm day because it's curving down like that just gives you an indication of the high pressure. okay so here's the model and this is long range ball, and this is not very granular. but it's very it's good at picking up big, long range pattern. so there's tuesday. here's wednesday changes. is coming. c that cloud band coming down. that's kind of cool friday. that's that's right. that's not bad. if that happens and it's something some some iteration of this will happen. i don't know if that would be the exact timing on that but this trough
is destined for us somewhere around friday, saturday and sunday, and if you notice that brought out some showers in parts of the parts of the dixie fire zone, which is good to see so just rooting on the firefighters like i said before these fires don't go away until we get some rain. they just don't don't you know they may go 90% containment, but those fires, aren't they don't they don't walk away from those fires until it's rained. um. especially big fires like this. so here's the plan for tomorrow, right? and the story as we turn to the end of the week is we're going to see the marine layer really stretch out and cool things off. but tomorrow is another day like today, so we still have that i showed you that fog curving over we still have that kind of more warm weather pattern. and so the layout is like that kind of a nice little fall pattern. air quality is fine. i mean, not perfect, but pretty close, you know, for this time of year, and with all the fires that are burning temperatures tomorrow look like this. see the fog or look like these. and you'll see the orange colors and the reds come in red zone nineties, most of us tomorrow or in the
seventies, eighties and low nineties, so life shot out there looks like there's a little wind cameras bumping around 91 in fairfield 90 in antioch 86 in santa rosa. 89 11. i hope you had a good weekend. um this week is going to be nice one and it's starting to and will continue to feel like fall as we walk on through these next week and coming few weeks. julie julie haener. i was watching football all weekend. i know you were, too and it was just it's fall, and it's not quite fall officially, but it's feeling like you can feel it in the evenings when the day light starts to turn into dark earlier and earlier, yeah. you can feel it, bill. thanks. we'll see you later on tonight. well today was the last day of the 31st annual autumn moon festival in san francisco. the celebration was held at grant avenue between california street and broadway in chinatown, san francisco police department, asian and pacific islander forum took the opportunity to distribute safety kits at the event, they say violence against asian americans continues to be a top concern among members of the community. the brussels based
