the same little cooler. steve what are you gonna do for gasia weather wise? what's she done for me lately? come on now. yeah we are looking for relief, though, for sure are deep. so you guys always gives me grief when she walks in a private joke between the two of us. alright we built this city, which is named for a blog not to starship song. bizarre weather this morning and westwood park weird bright fog and wet streets. i'm getting a lot of pictures from the city and elsewhere of not only rainbows, but there's also reports of rain peninsula down to santa cruz east. and now starting to pop up around napa. i'm trying to keep up on this as fast as i can watch your american canyon napa deauville right there a little line forming. keep an eye on that monterey to carmel. one lightning strike there and look at that line heading right there, so there's going to be a lot of activity today will be cooler. there's also a bigger fog bank 60 seventies eighties nineties to near 100. alright allies here we've been bouncing between the east and the south
way, but i think it's all about the south bay. it is all about the south there, you know, and i'm not sure why that is maybe because of some of the earlier rain that happened this morning, and maybe that cause people to slow down maybe a little bit slick roads there, but this is what we have going so the biggest crash and i think the biggest problem is north and 101 at oakland, and that's where you see a lot of heavy traffic. kind of stacking up behind it. no lanes closed there, but just a lot of people hitting a kind of driving towards that crashed there causing things to slow down. we also have a crash cottbus 6 80 just north of signal truck is on the way there, so hopefully that will clear up soon. a bridge toll plaza is very busy this morning . you're looking at a 20 minute delay to get under the span. it's backed up all the way to the mcarthur maze. 702 let's go back to the desk. okay ali. thank you. well, today is the first day back to school for students and saffron. cisco the bay area's biggest school district. ktvu is. amanda quintana is at the san francisco school district office now to tell us some of the challenges
facing the school district as this new school year begins. good morning, amanda good morning. well, it is an exciting day for those students more than 50,000. students will be going back to the classroom here in san francisco, but for some of them, the teacher that they meet today is not going to be the teacher that they have throughout the year. they may be meeting a substitute today, and that's because the administration is still looking to feel about 60 teacher vacancies, and today some of those students might be meeting some office workers that are stepping in for those students or other subs. stitch, toots. and they're going to be taking over some teacher duties until more teachers are hired. this morning, superintendent dr matt wayne will be greeting some students on their first day, kicking off his first year as superintendent. in an update to parents released last week, dr wayne laid out some of the covid safety protocols for the year, same asking and getting vaccinated is strongly
recommended, but not required. students were also encouraged. to get tested for covid before the first date today. schools are also expecting some more information on monkey pox in that newsletter sent out, he said that they're going to be waiting to hear from the department of public health here in san francisco, and they will see what those recommendations say they might change some protocol in the school based on those recommendations, but those haven't come out yet. so they're also waiting for that. as well as the covid safety protocols that they're going to be doing this year as well. live in san francisco. amanda keown tonight ktvu. fax tunis. thank you. it's not just san francisco students going back to school today. fremont unified, the third biggest school district in the bay area is starting school today as well. and san jose unified. first day of teaching is this morning in as well, that school district says they've been dealing with staffing shortages, too. but they will
have a full time credential teacher in almost every classroom, but they say a few classes will have to begin the school year with the long term substitute teacher. house speaker nancy pelosi hosted a call in session for people who wanted more information on monkeypox said. francisco has a third of the total confirmed cases. in california. thousands of people joined the meeting. experts discussed updates on vaccine shortages and how to best help stop the spread of the illness. i am curious about what the current guidance is for ending isolation for patients. um it seems to be mixed messages evolving as we speak, but essentially, we consider someone transmittable with monkeypox virus from the onset of symptoms but actually like symptoms pointed out until the brushes carved off. doctors also remind everyone on the call that anyone who's contracted the virus could still spread it through sexual contact for up to three months
after symptoms are gone, so they're encouraging people to use proper protection. the case of a man who went to stanford medical center from monkey pox treatment is raising questions about the spread of the illness. the method recently traveled to the united states from the uk, his highest risk exposure came during a crowded outdoor event that included dancing, he said he didn't have any contact with anyone who appeared sick and no sexual contact of any kind with anyone. researchers say that raises concerns about how he became infected. they say the possibilities include skin to skin, contact, respiratory droplets or touching surfaces that someone who was infected had already touched our time now . 706 police at uc berkeley say someone was attacked yesterday at people's park university police and a warning to the campus yesterday afternoon, saying someone in people's park was choked, hit in the face and pulled to the ground. there was no information about a suspect or if an arrest had been made. people have been occupying people's park for several weeks now trying to block the
university from beginning construction work on new housing on part of that historic part. well in the elite athlete who was out early in the morning running in the north bay had quite a surprise. i got attacked by a coyote. good night. you heard right. parnassus is an ultra marathon runner. he says he he never experienced anything like that ronnie had last week. he says a coyote jumped on him while he was running in the marin headlands just as he pulled out an energy bar to take a bite. and i heard some footsteps coming up behind me. and i thought, oh, there's a dog. someone's walking their dog, and i turned and right when i did that, a coyote just barrelled into my back. i think it was going for my bar. and when i turned this way it either miscalculated or whatever, but it just you know, knocked me to the ground. what a story corn as a says he sees coyotes. pretty often he thinks people may have been feeding the coyotes, which
is why it may have gone for his food, the national park service warns. they're not characterizing this as an attack . they say they did. his range aries were caused by the fall not by the coyotes. happening today, a flex alert issued by the agency that operates california's power grid. it comes during another day of extreme heat. ktvu andre senior live in studio to explain what that alert means andre and why they may become more and more common. gasia let's start with the basics here. kelis so the grid operator has called for voluntary electricity conservation because the demand for power is expected to be very high with above normal temperatures again today. and for the first time this year, people and businesses are being asked to conserve electricity, especially between four this afternoon and nine tonight, and that is when demand is highest because more people are using power for air conditioning and because there is less solar power available, callista was asking people to take a few steps before the flex alert goes into effect at four pm you
should pre cool your home by setting your thermostat as low as 72 degrees, and you should have just blinds and drapes to cover your window so he does not come. into your home now, after four o'clock, you should set your thermostat. no lower than 78 degrees, and you should avoid using major appliances including air conditioners, if possible, also turn off all unnecessary lights, but it's more than a power shortage. we should be concerned about. we can be very busy and be responding to people with heat illness that can happen when people don't realize the effect that he can have on their body and they're going about their normal day. so is that steve paulson has been saying temperatures topped 100 degrees in some places yesterday , and even though temperatures are not expected to be quite as high today, it's still going to be as much as 10 degrees hotter than the averages for this time of year in many communities across the north, south and east bay. neglect spurts remind people that if you're going to exercise to either do it now
before it gets too warm or late this evening after it's called awesome and drink lots of fluids . even if you do not think that you're thirsty. they see many people underestimate the seriousness of health and illnesses, including heatstroke when a person's temperature can rise to 106 degrees, and that can cause permanent disability or death if the person does not receive emergency treatment in the 1st 10 or 15 minutes. most barrier counties do have cooling centers, including public libraries, you can go to get out of the heat back over to you. wow. good information, andre. thank you time now. 7 10 and ali rasmus is here with good information about your commute. good morning, ali. good morning . i'm trying to keep up with some of the crashes that have been popping up throughout the bay area. you know wednesday, middle of the week of people still go into the office. even though they may be working from home on monday and friday and the other days of the week, so let's show you the map. we want to start with the peninsula because there's a new crash
westbound 92 at el camino off ramp, and if you could see from the map here, it is slowing things down on the san mateo bridge. let's show you this live picture. it is pretty crowded. it's actually moving a little bit better now than it was just about 10 minutes ago when this crash first came in, so hopefully, things get cleared there pretty quickly. 8 80 in oakland past the colosseum, this area looks good. keep in mind far south of this picture, so southbound 80 f makoto so down towards fremont, there is a collision reported there as well. we have our emeryville camera back. so from the cartoonist bridge to mcarthur maze, it'll take you 32 minutes to get to the bay bridge toll plaza and i don't have the toll plaza. but here, check out this crash south bend 6 80 at signal you're going to want to keep your eye out for that. 7 11. let's go back to the desk. thank you. the historic drought. it's affecting wildlife. would animal experts say you should not do is the drought is pushing more wildlife into urban areas. and a 16 year old wins this year's google doodle contest after a quick break the meaning behind

lead to a lot of issues or human beings might think that an animal is coming in as a potential threat, but really, they're just trying to stay alive. well, some people think they can help wildlife by putting out food or water. animal experts advise against it, saying that food and water can attract groups of animals that shouldn't be together and make the animals more reliant on humans for food. alright time at 7 27 get ready. now we know when the navy blue angels will fly through bay area skies coming up when the 41st annual fleet week airshow will come back to san francisco and celebrating a successful firefight what was done ahead of time that helped cal fire control flames. from a fire in this year

freeway. however only the state or the federal government can change the offering. and oakland church that promotes the use of psychedelic mushrooms and cannabis has filed a lawsuit against the city of oakland and the oakland police department over a police raid that happened two years ago, according to the chronicle in august of 2020, oakland police raided these i george church and seized $200,000 worth of cannabis, psychedelic mushrooms and cash. police say they had received reports that the church was operating as a cannabis dispensary without a permit. the church is founder told the chronicle. he doesn't sell drugs, he says church members pay a fee of $5 a month and donate money to get cannabis or mushrooms. in its lawsuit. the church said the police raid violated its constitutional and religious freedoms. there is no resolution yet to the dispute between the city of santa clara and the 49ers over the running of levi stadium, the santa clara city council was due to consider a settlement offer last night, but the council did not reach a resolution. the two sides have been in a dispute since the
opening of the stadium over revenues, curfews and accounting practices potential settlement being offered to the city by the niners includes a $3.3 million cash payment to the city's general fund. your time 7 30 for president biden still celebrating the passage of the inflation reduction act. inflation reduction act does so many things that for so many years so many of us have fought to make happen. the president signed that bill into law at the white house. democrats call it a major political victory and call it a landmark bill that will shape the nation's response to climate change and health care for years to come. no republicans voted for it. they say it won't fix the problems with the economy and that it's filled with liberal priorities. everything we're doing is reducing the cost of individuals are burdened with and how they say that's not going to help inflation. i have no idea we're going to see more inflation now because of more bad policy by joe biden and the congressional democrats. the president and
other members of his administration will spend the next few weeks trying to explain the law to the american people how it affects their budgets now and in the future. it is 7 35 to santa clara county board of supervisors voted unanimously to support a ballot proposition to protect a woman's right to choose proposition one if it's approved in november, would amend the state's constitution to assure a woman's right to an abortion. and the right to choose or refuse contraceptives . now it's a direct response to the supreme court's recent ruling that overturned roe versus wade. more than 3000. people were forced to evacuate after a series of explosions and fires in an ammunition storage facility in russia. the attack was said to have been carried out by ukrainian military forces in crimea. last week, nine russian planes were destroyed at a crimean airbase. russia seized crimea from ukraine back in 2014 and had used the region as a way to launch attacks on ukraine for the past six months. marine
county couple wants to continue helping ukrainian refugees after traveling to poland to provide necessities to women and children. jola and santiago morris spent their two week trip helping 200 families and dozens of children at a ukrainian orphanage. the trip was originally planned as a family visit to jolie's home country of poland. but the focus shifted when she learned of the refugee's plight. she raised money and received donations from clients, coworkers and neighbors to help ukrainian refugees in poland. it felt great. it was, um just said that it said, because this kid's, um the polish family want to adopt them or they want to foster them. but because of the war, everything is put on hold, jumping with joy and saying are we going to have new shoes? and it was really, um, very special to that moment tomorrow is also used the money to purchase supplies and gift cards for students at eight schools. they say their relief work is about meeting the refugees. they help in person, and they hope to
remind people that the war in ukraine is not over time that 7 37 now to a wildfire success story for once. cal fire says brush clearing and fuel reduction efforts kept the oak fire from being any bigger than it became that fire started earlier this week in the sierra near colfax. firefighters in the area had been treated several times in the past few years. crews removed trees and brush which made it harder for the fire to burn and easier for planes to drop fire retardant. most likely that fire would have gotten into the canyon. it would have been a much larger, much more costly hazardous fire and probably much more of a risk to the community. also dirt roads were created and maintained, but ahead of time that helped the fire engines get to spot fires that were ahead of the main fire . by the way, that fire is 70% contained. 7 38 preparations are underway for san francisco's 41st annual fleet week. air show

a new problem there. you know most of the rest of the commute. has been pretty bad, so i kind of neglected this one. and i just saw that there was a crash there that we have to tell you about cottbus 6 80 just north of pacheco. and this is going to be a big mess. this is a jackknife big rig that is on its side. 6 80 just north of pacheco there, that's in addition to some of the very crowded conditions westbound highway four and then south bend to 42, then southbound 6 80 all the way down through walnut creek. we also have a lot of heavy traffic westbound 80 from elsa brandi all the way through berkeley. so your drive time from the cartoonist bridge. mcarthur maze 46 minutes. the commute in this area got off to a late start, but now it is very slow and spots. so once you get through on the creek, if you're headed towards the calico cut things open up a little bit highway 24 in lafayette, but it's still stop and go through that area. 7 51. here. steve paulson. thank you, ali rascals. appreciate that. alright lots going on here . rainbow weather. rain

morning. now, once those students get inside the classroom, though, some won't be meeting the teacher that they're going to have all year. and said , starting off with a substitute now that's because school administrators are still trying to fill as many as 60. teacher vacancies hired. and this morning, superintendent dr matt wayne will be here at willie brown junior middle school. greetings students on their first day, kicking off his first year as superintendent, in an update to parents released last week, dr wayne laid out some of the covid safety protocols for the year, saying that masking and getting vaccinated is strongly recommended, but not required. students were also encouraged to get tested before this first day of school today. schools are also expecting some guidance on monkey pox from the department of public health. so they should get some of that information
soon and have those recommendations and possibly be changing some protocols in school, but this morning school starts at 9 30, so we're waiting to see some students show up early, but they will have a welcome event here with the superintendent and a lot of just happiness as they greet these students. for this first day of school, and we'll make sure to bring you that, as it's happening live in san francisco. amanda quintana ktvu fox two news, amanda. thank you. it's not just san francisco students going back to school today. fremont unify the third biggest district in the bay area starts school today to san jose. unified first day of instruction is this morning as well. that district says they have also been dealing with staffing shortages but will have a full time credential teacher in nearly every classroom, and it says a few classes will have to start the year with a long term substitute. time is 804. house speaker nancy pelosi hosted a call in session for people who wanted more information on monkeypox. san francisco has one third of the total confirmed cases here in california.
thousands of people joined the meeting. experts discussed updates on vaccine shortages and how to best help stop the spread. i am curious about what the current guidance is for ending isolation for patients. um it seems to be mixed messages evolving as we speak, but essentially, we consider someone transmissible with monkeypox virus from the onset of symptoms like symptoms pointed out until the brushes cabg off. doctors also remind everyone that anyone has contracted the virus could still spread it through sexual contact for up to three months after symptoms are gone, so they're encouraging people to use proper protection. the case of a man who went to stanford medical center for monkeypox treatment is raising questions about the spread of the illness. the men had recently traveled to the united states from the uk, his highest risk exposure came during a crowded outdoor event that included dancing, he said he didn't have any contact with
anyone who appeared sick and no sexual contact of any kind with anyone. researchers say that raises concerns about how he became infected. they say the possibilities include skin to skin, contact, respiratory droplets or touching surfaces that someone who was infected had already touched. all police at uc berkeley say someone was attacked yesterday, people's park university police sent a warning to the campus yesterday afternoon, saying someone in people's park was choked, hit in the face and pulled to the ground. there was no information about a suspect or if arrests were made. people have been occupying people's park for several weeks trying to block the university from starting construction on new housing on part of the historic park. elite athletes and elite athlete who was out for an early morning run in the north bay got quite a surprise early during a morning run. i got attacked by a coyote. yeah you heard that right? dean karna. czyz is an ultra marathon runner, and he says he's never experienced anything like his run in the marin headlands last
week, he says that coyote jumped on him just as he pulled out an energy bar to begin to take a bite. and i heard some footsteps coming up behind me. and i thought, oh, there's a dog. someone's walking their dog, and i turned and right when i did that, a coyote just barrelled into my back. i think it was going for my bar. and when i turned this way it either miscalculated or whatever, but it just you know, knocked me to the ground left him with those bruises you see on their face, cornices says. he says he sees coyotes fairly often and thinks people may have been feeding the animal, which is why it went for his food. the national parks service says they are not calling this a coyote attack because the runners injuries were caused by the fall and not by the coyote. this is now day three of us strike against kaiser permanente by mental health workers in northern and central california, and there is no end in sight. since monday. 2000 kaiser employees have been off the job on the picket line protesting what they call an ethical working conditions that they say are causing canceled
appointments and delays for patients who urgently need care . the management of kaiser disputes that and accuses the protesters of using the strike. as a negotiating tactic kind of permanent, released a statement that said, in part for the entirety of its 12 years of existence, nuh w. is called for an issue the threat of strikes as a bargaining tactic in every contract negotiation. this will be the second time in a year they have called on mental health providers to walk away well happening today, a flex alert issued by the agency that operates california's power grid comes during another day of extreme heat. let's start with the basics here, calyx, so the grid operator has called for voluntary electricity conservation because demand for power is expected to be very high with our above normal temperatures again today and for the first time this year, people and businesses they're being asked to conserve electricity, especially between four this afternoon and nine o'clock tonight. and that is what demand is highest because more people are using power for air conditioning and because there
is less power available to them. all i saw was asking people to take a few steps before the flex alert goes into effect at four pm you should pre cool your home by sending your thermostat as low as 72 degrees, and you should have just your blinds and drapes to cover your windows, so the heat does not come into your home. after four o'clock, you should set your thermostat no lower than 78 degrees, and you should avoid using major appliances, including air conditioners, if possible, also turn off all unnecessary lights , but it's more than a power shortage. we should be concerned about. we can be very busy and be responding to people with heat illness that can happen when people don't realize the effect that he can have on their body and they're going about their normal day. steve paulson has been saying temperatures topped 100 degrees in some places yesterday, and even though temperatures are not expected to be quite as high today, it's still going to be as much as 10 degrees hotter than the averages for this time of
year in many inland communities across the north, south and east based medical experts remind people that if they're going to exercise to either do it now before it gets too warm or late this evening. after it's cooled off some and drink a lot of fluids. even if you don't think you are thirsty, they say many people underestimate how serious health illnesses can be, including heatstroke when temperatures a person's temperature can rise to 106 degrees that can cause permanent disability or death. if the person does not receive emergency treatment in the 1st, 10 or 15 minutes. most very counties do have cooling centers, including public libraries, where you can get out of the heat. garcia andre senior . thank you, ted. let's get you out the door here we are checking in on ali rasmus, who has been very busy from the get go again. drivers are going to have a tough time if they cross the bonita bridge and head southbound 6 80, because martinez is where we've been following this big crash that's happened there. all lanes are blocked southbound 6 80 at
pacheco because of a big rig. that flipped onto its side. you can see the traffic building up as we speak. if you have to get around this definitely avoid the venetian routine. it's bridge, but you're still gonna have a hard time. if say, you go the opposite way and go westbound 80 from hercules down to berkeley. it is backed up all the way to hercules, um, possibly because people are trying to get around the crash on the other side. so your drive time from the car kenya's bridge to mcarthur maze 5th 49 minutes. it's going to take you a little while. give yourself some extra time or maybe waited out an hour or so until things here, clear up, 8 11. let's go back to the desk. thank you. florida teenager wins this year's google doodle contest coming up, we'll explain the meaning behind her award winning design and why she called it not alone. first. california lawmakers once again discussing climate change and its impact on our state after the break with democrats and republicans agree on what needs to happen during a summit at

bridge crossing at the creek along dipsy trail. 30 ft wooden plank is set up for several months each year so people can tightrope across the last official bridge washed out 40 years ago span will cost $2 million. it would include handrails and as part of a $20 million muir woods renovation. california's ongoing drought has affected in animals as well as people. the lack of rain is bringing more wildlife into urban environments as the birds , mammals and reptiles search for food and water. wildlife experts say that's creating more problems for both animals and people. you might start having more bears and mountain lions are raccoons, skunks, animals like that? moving in where they can find the resources that they need. but of course, sometimes that leads to less than positive interactions with people and having everybody in closer quarters like that, potentially going for the same resources can lead to a lot of issues or human beings might think that an animal is coming in as a potential threat, but really, they're just trying to stay alive. or some people think they
can help wildlife by putting out food and water. animal experts advise against it, saying food and water can attract groups of animals that shouldn't be together and make those animals more reliant on humans for food . political leaders from california and nevada are again stressing the need for urgent action do because of climate change. governor newsom and senator expedia are among the bipartisan group of leaders attending the lake tahoe summit. democrats are pushing for more action to limit carbon emissions , while republicans were more focused on force management to prevent wildfires. we must double down on our efforts to combat the climate crisis. excess timber will always come out of a forest. are there we will carry it out. or nature will burn it out. that's the choice. governor newsom is calling on the legislature to pass a series of climate related bills before the end of the month. he says he believes in two weeks or enough time for lawmakers to get it done. these are familiar themes. these are some familiar issues. question is do we have the political
will, and for me? it's a simple question, which siding on senator dianne feinstein was scheduled to be at the event but was not there yesterday. sorry 18 erasmus. nice long nap this afternoon for all the hard work she's been doing for us since four am on traffic. yeah, i'm looking forward to that. it's not a good drive out there for folks this morning. this is probably the heaviest commute i've seen all week. since i've been filling in of the big problems about we keep an eye on right now is southbound etienne martinez. this is at chico. that's where a big rig got into a crash. it's on its side, according to the chp's notes, there is a singular issued so all lanes are blocked. if you have to drive through this area , first of all, i would avoid the venetian martinez bridge altogether if you could. because of this crash, chp says it's going to take a while for things to clear up here because there's also a fuel leak. that they can't tap right away because of
the way the big rig crashed. so bottom line big mess. try to avoid it if you can. there's also some heavy traffic on south 28 80 because of an earlier crash at alvarado niles. it's been cleared out of the way, but some of that heavy traffic continues to linger. also as you exit the san mateo bridge 8 19 here's steve paulson. he's also been very busy this morning. we have just such an unusual weather mix. well, it's fun. you know, i'm also taking a nap this afternoon alley. good think like you. we've been dancing since four a.m. this morning. we will start with a lot of rainbow conditions here. we've had some in concord, walnut creek, oakland, maybe venetia julie russell said and joined my morning swim under a rainbow. all that sounds nice. how is that water? julie? fast, fast water today. i bet it was had some reports of rain, as also from napa county. now lifting north looks like more just a veil or a blanket of more cloud cover with lighter rain, but that's some pretty good reports around vallejo, benita hercules, berkeley right now. pretty good.
little sell their right over berkeley look like san pablo san pablo bay. there's plenty to go here. look at all this moisture streaming north, where now it looks like there's been a little disruption of the fog bank. but not only that there is a pretty good line stretching from look at that carmel valley just to south monterey to santa cruz, so it's a pretty good little line here. i can do this real quick here. let's do this. come on, you're gonna work. maybe not. maybe not. anyway that line is stretching right there stretching north, so carmel valley monitor monterey castroville freedom. santa cruz could be in line for more activity here in the next 20 minutes or so. 59 to 100 degrees . it will be cooler but also be muggy because we're adding these monsoon clouds in but a much bigger fog bank in a little more of a breeze. these were the highs yesterday, santa rosa conquered stanford and san jose. one oh 11 of 4 98 97 today 91 90 89 89 very challenging forecast when you get this much monsoon cloud cover in here 50 60 seventies to almost 80 so a huge
bread on the temps, but a lot of the cloud cover will i think take about 10 degrees off some of these highs. you can see some of the lightning strikes. you can see the fog bank out there. that's a much bigger fog bank. but look at all that moisture streaming up on me coming in from the i mean that's heading santa clara county, contra costa county, solano county, santa cruz santa cruz mountains and have a long way to go with that funneled around the low and the high coming around clockwise around the high counter clockwise around the low, and that's what's sending it northward. so the combination of all that is going to make for a very active day here could get some pretty good thunderstorms later as you get a little more heating and a little more lift. the buoyancy of the atmosphere can be a little bit something to keep an eye on this afternoon sixties seventies by the water eighties nineties to near 100, inland coast never got in on the heat yesterday, so they don't have to cool off bayside. well inland temps will gradually cool off you guys. steve thank you very couples keeping up there for a job. dozens of families who fled the war in ukraine coming up their journey and what they want people to remember about the conflict thunderstorms

problem then more parts of california facing increasing problems with their water supply , because we continue to deal with this historic drought, what some wineries are now turning to help keep their businesses running. from ktvu. fox two news this morning's onto good morning and welcome back. i'm gasia mikaelian the end, andre senior time now is 8 30. today is hump day wednesday, august 17th we turn things over to steve paulson for a look at the forecast earlier. i was looking over my shoulder here about a half hour ago. it was raining on the estuary. now the sun's out. it's starting to dry up a little bit. things are changing. well, you should be familiar with. just wait five minutes, right? and oh, yes, i certainly am southern florida. come on now,
although you had much more dramatic effects, and we're getting here, but that's kind of the forecast today. it's sunny. it's raining. it's rainbow weather. now it's sunny and here come the clouds again. d douglas says woke up to rain in berkeley in august thought i was dreaming farms and berkeley rain and berkeley yes. had some reports of rain looks like it's about done, though, had a couple of lines moving in from piedmont, emeryville, berkeley, now over kensington. the last little proof just went through, so i think it's done there and a couple reports in the berkeley hills but mainly in town. that whole band is lifting northward . there's not a lot to it, but there's a lot to the south, pretty good line of thunderstorms stretching along the santa cruz san mateo coast, right back to monterey and carmel valley and a huge surge of moisture coming up. from the valley, taking aim towards santa clara county contra costa. i think eventually solano county 60 seventies eighties nineties to near 100 degrees, all right, ali 8 31. do you have any good news? for crying out loud? i'm sorry. i don't. well, maybe a little teeny bit of good news. so we mentioned that jackknife
big rig that has completely blocked all lanes of traffic on south bend, 6 80. and martinez at pacheco that's been going on for the last half hour. there is a note from the chp that they finally have been able to stop that fuel from that big rig from leaking so now they can start some of the other work in getting too heavy duty tow trucks to get everything cleared. bottom line. we don't know when these southbound lanes of 6 80 at pacheco boulevard are going to reopen. if you could avoid the venetian martinez bridge altogether. that would be good advice if you are going to drive in west contra costa county from hercules all the way down to this point, there is very heavy traffic on westbound 80. and so you if you can. i mean, maybe just stay home a little longer, if that's a possibility, because the commute from this whole region is having a tough time right now. 8 32. let's go back to the desk. ali. thank you so much. a homeowner in east san jose says cars have hit his home 23 times in the

keeping the oak fire from getting any bigger than it did, and fire broke out earlier this week in the sierra near colfax. firefighters see the area had been treated several times over the last few years, with cruz removing trees and brush that made it harder for the fire to burn and easier for planes to hit it. with fire retardant. most likely that fire would have gotten into the canyon. it would have been a much larger, much more costly hazardous fire and probably much more of a risk to the community. there were also dirt roads created and maintained ahead of time, which also helped fire engines get to spot fires that got ahead of the main fire. fired by the way is now 70% contained 35 year. businesses and communities searching for additional water during the drought are now turning to recycled water to help them get through these extremely dry years as part of our continuing series on the drought and conservation efforts in the bay area, meteorologist mark tamayo takes us to one winery up in petaluma that's using recycled water in its
vineyard. summertime tasting in sonoma county brought the grapes in their first thing they did is they press the skins off, showcasing the grapes that have different background stories scripted by changing weather patterns. keller estate specializes in chardonnay and pinot noir. wine makers cherish the unique wind and fog patterns found in the petaluma gap. but the latest drought has its winery asking questions. i think it's become a question of can we continue to grow grapes or not? keller is the estate director and has been trying to figure out ways to fend off the intense drought. the property has no access to municipal water and 60% of the crops were lost last year. they found a solution and it wasn't recycled water in 2020 . we started trucking water from the treatment plant, but we soon realized that we weren't able to get enough water, and it was too expensive to even continued going down that route. the nearest city pump that supplies
recycled water is one mile away from this pond on their property color state made the bold move last year, digging this long trench over hills and across properties to make a connection. the cost was $50,000 were basically winter water storage in our ponds. so we calculate how much water we're going to need for the season. we fill our ponds and then through the year we're using it. finally a reliable resource that can soak their thirsty crops. state buys a recycled water from the city and uses the pipeline from october through march. pump transports the water to 90 acres of vineyards. their investment is paying off in the crops have more life. we're happy. you know we can. we've got enough grapes for to make wines for the 2021 vintage. this is the source of the coveted water. the ellis creek water recycling facility is five miles away down lakeville highway wastewater is treated here in multiple steps.
some of the water is released into the petaluma river, the fraction of water that makes it to the final tertiary stages treated with ultraviolet light and reused. the goal is to save all the fresh water we can and reuse it. somehow. christopher bolt is a director of public works and utilities for the city of petaluma. he says there has been substantial interest and recycled water, and there are projects in place to help meet growing demand. right now we're able to produce about 3.5 million gallons per day. our goal after one of the grants we've received, our territory upgrade project would be to produce closer to six million gallons per day. pipes carry the non potable water from the facility to various customers in petaluma, some parks, schools, forums and golf courses are already hooked up to the system plan to really study ways that we can expand what we call our purple pipe system throughout the community. and that would include both throughout the urban areas, but also the agricultural areas. updates and
expansions may take years to accomplish. our current drought is still front and center. and this winery is acknowledging its big accomplishment. you must be sort of proud of them. this system. i am proud i am proud of, you know, it was certainly it was certainly a milestone to get water here and i know i made i made a winemaker happy knowing that we can produce the best grapes possible. mark tamayo ktvu fox two news. you can find more information on the drought as well as resources on our website, a special section dedicated to the water crisis had ktvu .com/ drought. time now is 8 39 preparations underway for san francisco's 41st annual fleet week airshow. the navy's blue angels are the highlight of the show with their precision maneuvers over the bay and bridges. fleet week starts on october 3rd with ship tours, musical performances and art displays all free of charge.
some of the best seats for the earth show are on the marina green and you can buy tickets for upgrading upgraded seating. fleet week runs through october . 11th october can be one of those magic months. whether, pet . exactly blue, this kind of muggy, massive late summer steve paulson hopefully will be a distant memory. what we don't want will be offshore wind we don't want that. october is notorious for that. so let's hope it doesn't do that. we've had a nice summer now this week . yes has been hot. i don't think inland temps are really going to cool down all that much. the changes the monsoon cloud cover, matt hanlon says hi , steve. i met it's pouring right now in la honda, la honda's on skyline on the peninsula, and that's the line. stretching from just the santa cruz mountains right towards portola valley. maybe half moon bay. going right along you can see some of the data is big time activity there any read? no lightning reported just some pretty moderate to heavy rain as that line stretches north. let
me do this. let me go up here. let me just do this and see where we can get in here. see where this is going. so hang half moon bay, san mateo, millbrae, south san francisco and daly city in the next 6 to 18 minutes. that's pretty good, right? also we've had some rain and berkeley now it looks like it's hanging out over. elsa brandt also hercules. we've had an earlier report of rain and wind and hercules. so all of these bands are skirting right along there heading over the san pablo bay area. the main line, though, is stretching from right there on the peninsula all the way down towards by santa cruz, monterey bay and then all the way down towards carmel valley and look at all the moisture streaming up from the valley. so we're not done yet. i forgot to mention there's also there was a pretty good fog bank. i think this this monsoon cloud cover is kind of chewed it up a little bit, so there's plenty going around temperatures if you're north, they're cooler everywhere else. they're running warmer because of the monsoon cloud cover livermore. plus seven compared to yesterday at this time conquered in san jose, plus five so 59 to 100. temperatures
are always a bear when there's monsoon cloud cover like this so again, they could come down 10 degrees after yesterday, one. oh +6171. oh, wait for some more of a just a general cloud cover looks like it's kind of kind of and more innocuous moving north towards lake county sonoma county. we did have rain in napa county earlier about to look at all that. i mean, there's a lot to go here. rio vista had some lightning earlier monterey santa cruz right there, and there's a lot more coming up from fresno, so santa clara valley's santa clara county, maybe over mount hamilton's contra costa county and solano still in the mix for some of that activity, the case of it's just that high. you need a little help. will that help us in the form of that low when you get that that comes around like that that taps in that provides some of the moisture source of these combinations of the two are sending in a lot of this moisture here. and there's plenty to go. so here you go, son. clouds rainbows. maybe showers, thundershowers. then we'll do it all over again. 60 seventies by the water, it does look a little cooler here. for many, although the monsoon cloud
government had humidity to the mix, but inland temps creeping a little bit slower and lower you guys next few days. steve. thank you. 8 43. there's another music festival happening here in the bay area. we're so excited on the nine will give you an inside look at the two day pittsburgh jazz, blues and funk festival students who attended i t t tech institute will have their student loans cleared out after the break what the department of education says the institution did and how many students are affected by this.

from clients, coworkers and neighbors to help ukrainian refugees in poland. it felt great. it was, um just said that it said, because this kid's, um the polish family want to adopt them or they want to foster them. but because of the war, everything is put on hold, jumping with joy and saying are we going to have new shoes? and it was really, um, very special to that moment. tomorrow is also used the money to purchase supplies and gift cards for students at eight schools. they say their relief work is about meeting the refugees. they help in person. they want to remind people the war in ukraine is not over time. now is 8 47. some student loans will be forgiven, and airbnb is cracking down on people trying to host big parties at its rentals, wrapping this all up in more by joining us upstairs. also there's an interesting news from target here. that's affecting stocks, right? changing their plan targets. profits in the second quarter dropped significantly from the first three. months of the year. the ceo blames it on

actually hanging over one of the north beyond lanes, so one lane of north bong 6 80 at pacheco is also closed. let's get a closer look and you can see the backup goes all the way across the venetian martinez bridge. i would avoid this bridge altogether and you'll see backup. backing up to 6 80 also 7 80 into venetia. so big mess. we don't know when all of these southbound lanes will reopen if you are driving in west contra costaouy down that westbound 80 corridor, it's backed up from hercules all the way to the east shore freeway. it will take you 45 minutes to get across the bay bridge toll plaza. also very congested. it's just been a very busy and not so easy commute for drivers out there. cemetery bridge looks a little bit better, but i want to end on the golden gate bridge because in addition to some of the rainbows and some of the rain that people have been waking up to there's also some pretty heavy fog that steve paulson has been telling us about. it's a lot a lot going on weather wise traffic. as you
know, we had fog. then it disappeared. now it's back back. it's been coming and going coming and going, all right. we will focus, though, on hercules. a little bit of activity there right over san pablo bay. watch right there. boom lightning detection picking up there had some earlier and rio vista. we've had some office, santa cruz and monterey so i would expect this off and on throughout the day so far, it's not lighting. but boy, is it coming down for some on the peninsula there to 80 west over towards half moon bay, la honda. maybe just to the west there portola valley. that line is associated with a band that stretches all the way down towards santa carla right along the san mateo santa cruz coastline and then even down towards monterey. you can see some lighting off of santa cruz. pebble beach had a thunderstorm monterey and there's a lot coming up from the carmel valley , and there's a also another couple of bands coming in from the valley, which will keep everyone in line here, but the biggest activity right now is on the peninsula and over san pablo bay, 59 to 100. bigger fog bank
cool to warm lows. the warm clothes because of the demand soon clouds coming in, held up a lot of these overnight lows. inland sun clouds mcgee showers, thundershowers, santa rosa conquered stanford and san jose yesterday one on 1104 98 97 today 91 98 89 89 and look at all that. i mean, we this is going to be an active day. there's just no doubt about it combination of low clouds a little bit more of a breeze and all that monsoon moisture is going to make for a not so quiet wednesday. that's for sure. it's already been very active, and we're just getting going that lowest funneling in that moisture along with that high, so i would expect some pretty good downpours. maybe for some here and maybe some thunderstorms with more lightning 60 seventies. it does look cooler. this is a really challenging forecast on the high temps inland because of the cloud cover coming in. but we'll keep that the theme going of a little bit cooler each day as we head towards the end of the week, you guys thank you so much. steve as the inflation reduction act has now been signed by president biden. there
