nine pm today, and there might be more flexible alerts later on this week due to these high temperatures reporting live in las cotto's demagogues. ktvu fox two news. thank you so much. all right, let's get down to the forecast. now what we're gonna be looking like for today and heading into the next few days. meteorologist rosemary oroczo is here with more on that rosemary oroczo. we are looking at hotter weather getting into the weekend. here's a look outside and what is going on across the bay area this morning where san francisco has just a little bit of his little bit of fog along the coastline. we're seeing a little bit of fog and just inside the bay, everybody else with the sunny skies already first, let's talk about the advisory coming our way into the weekend, and then we'll come back around and take a look at what we can expect for today, so the excessive heat warning is for our inland cities, but notice the red it is pretty much covering almost the entire state of california. as we get in closer to the bay area. it's a little hard to tell the difference, but from our bay area into our coast. it's a, uh
9:06 am
excessive heat watches, which is not much better, but it is our inland cities that are going to have that extreme 100 degree plus weather. how does temperatures we have seen so far this year? and with that we are going to go for the next few days in some areas like anti oxford today, going to hit 100 degrees on monday, expected to get to about 1 10, so the heat is going to be on and we're talking about, of course, the dangerous heat that the type of heat that will bring on heat exhaustion and heat stroke. if you're just not really paying a whole lot of attention, so stay hydrated. avoid the afternoon if at all possible, of course, even around the bay. we're going to warm things up and a lot of folks around the bay and closer to the coast. i don't have a c right now. we do have 64 degrees in napa, and we have low seventies in brentwood and we have 65 in san jose, so temperatures are already rebounding across the bay area. meanwhile san francisco enjoying 56 low sixties in oakland and then into the afternoon sixties at the coast seventy's in san francisco, eighties around the
9:07 am
bay, so this is manageable nineties and napa. not bad for you warm but not bad upper nineties to about 100 degrees for inner east bay. so the inner east bay will be baking and we're just getting started. here is a look at tomorrow. not much change saturday, sunday monday, the hotter weather comes in. that's when we have the advisories kick in as well. but temperatures reaching near 110 degrees sunday into monday, just in time for the holiday and then for our basic communities will go mid nineties. even our coastline upper seventies to about 80 degrees expected. for pacifica, half moon bay. that's fairly nice weather. but if you plan on going to santa cruz to be in the nineties there as well, so hot, hot, hot coming our way we finally begin to see a break and a gradual cool down tuesday into wednesday back to you all right, rosemary. thank you. state lawmakers extended paid covid sick leave through the end of the year requirement for companies to provide 40 hours of sick time to people who tested positive was due to expire at the end of this month. the state law took effect last

9:09 am
and so many deaths, fda says. you have to wait at least two months after your vaccine vaccination or booster shot before getting the new one. it helps. the boosters will reduce the winter surge of cases like we saw over the last two years. coming up with 909 right now, if you have plans to drive to southern california this weekend, you might need to plan for a deep tour coming up on mornings on two of the nine. the status update on the root fire, shutting down a portion of the great vibe. but first a man trying to stop drug dealing in his neighborhood. this is in san francisco. what he said just moments before one drug dealer threw a knife. and s

9:15 am
the fact that we have the staffing shortage, we still are doing our very best to make sure that there are police present in the tenderloin. the d a. and police say they're working better now than they have in years past and they're working together trying to tackle this issue here is what we don't have answers to at this point or the police making more rest in the tenderloin than in years past and will district attorney jenkins office prosecuted more drug cases than her predecessor. and finally will jail time for dealers make the difference in the tenderloin. we will continue to ask for answers on this issue from city leaders in the coming weeks and months in san francisco, christien kafton ktvu fox two news. we have new damage numbers on a wildfire affecting the drive from the bay area to southern california. the root fire grew more than 580 acres overnight and is now at 5208 acres, and that's more than eight square miles. but the big news right now is that containment went from 0% to 12% this morning, a news conference scheduled for 10 a.m. we'll get

9:17 am
missing the 288,000 gain, economists had predicted. experts say they think that conservative pace of hiring is tied to the growing fears of an economic slowdown. labor department issued its august jobs report tomorrow. analysts are predicting strong job growth of about 300,000 jobs. let's talk more about today's job market and getting hired with linkedin career expert blair heitmann. thanks for being with us flair. thanks so much for having me. of course, most analysts agree that right now job seekers have the upper hand . but some are warning that could change very quickly. what are you seeing? yeah we're seeing. look, we're we are seeing that hiring numbers are slowing a bit, but it's still a job seekers market. in fact, there's tons of opportunities available right now in the u. s. there's 10.7 million jobs available and two million of those are in professional services. so if you're somebody that's interested in looking for a new role, there are opportunities out there, and we are seeing that many companies are really leaning on skills to ensure that they can really get those best candidates.
9:18 am
professional services. do you mean restaurants, hotels that that that area of the market? sure in technology is one of those as well. so if you're somebody that's in technology, and you decide that you want to make your next play, there's tons of opportunities available . and if you're somebody that's in technology, typically you have a ton of transferable skills, which we know is really important right now, in a job in the today's job market, do people care about college degrees anymore? or is it about you? you talk about skills? does that bachelor's mean anything anymore? yeah i mean, look, we are seeing that companies are leaning more on skills based hiring. they find that incredibly important that's really important, especially because it's been such a tight market for hiring managers. and it's such a job seekers market that they need to ensure that they can find that talent in the right spot, and they can find these pockets of great talent skills are becoming really, really important. so if you're somebody that's looking for a job, make sure you know what you're interested in. and the jobs available that you're
9:19 am
interested in. if you have the skills for and we actually put together a list of the top 20 skills that are in 80% of job listings right now 80% of job posting. so these are really important that if you have these skills don't bury your lead and make sure you put those front and center on your linkedin profile. what about soft skills? how do we make those apparent and how much do they count? soft skills are really, really important. in fact, we know from hiring managers that they find that just a standard resume isn't really enough to evaluate someone's soft skills, soft skills like communication and leadership are really, really important to how you do the job , not just getting the job done . it's really, really important so often, people don't realize that those are actually areas that they really want to focus on and what to highlight in those conversations, and you don't want to stay away from that spell. spell that out one thing that we actually we have is a new feature that enables you to see who in your network is hiring, which is a great opportunity for you to reach out
9:20 am
to those people and ask if you can chat with them within those windows. you can demonstrate those soft skills in those conversations, which sometimes keep you ahead. let's talk about what's happening when it comes to working at home versus working in the office, a lot of major companies making another push to get workers back to the office. some people deciding, you know what? i don't want to go back. i'm going across the street. do you bring up that? can i work from home issue in the interview process, and if so, at what point it's a really, really good question. the reality is many jobs are still remote. we're actually seeing on linkedin that there's a ton of remote jobs available. so i would advise jobseekers that if you're interested in making sure that you can work from home, seek out opportunities where you know the company policy is remote work, or at least hybrid . um, that can give you that balance. oftentimes you know, companies have really been public about what they're planning to do, and at least been transparent with their employees as to kind of if they don't have a final plan yet, like where they're at in that process, so that's certainly information that you could
9:21 am
figure out ahead of the interview. you always want to make sure that you have the skills and you have the background on what that what the company is like, so reach out to some of your network. talk to them about its working there and kind of get a feel for that before the interview to make sure that aligns with your goals. prizes on either end blair heitmann it's always good to talk with you. thanks for joining us from linkedin. thanks so much for having me. of course, coming up. it turns out 80% of people plan to travel by car as they go someplace fun. hopefully this labor day weekend next all mornings onto the nine we'll tell you what's happening with gas prices. i know you look at them to even when your tank is full this as travelers are getting ready to fuel up and hit the road. also if you're staying close to home this weekend, we'll show you why some popular parks will be closed prop 27 isn't a solution to homelessness.

as intense heat is expected to hit this weekend. ktvu sally rasmus is live near the line bridge open space area in walnut creek, with the reasons behind the closure and how park goers are reacting to it, alec. a salad. we're on right in front of one of the trail entrances to the lime ridge open space area in walnut creek, and you can see why the heat and the sun would be a concern here. it's completely unshaded in this part of the trail, but grass is very dry. so given that and the heat expected this weekend, they've made the decision to close this entrance to close this open space and to other open space areas in walnut creek in concord. throughout the labor day weekend. just within the past hour, we saw walnut creek park rangers coming out here to put up closure signs this park and two others the shell ridge and colonies ridge open space area in walnut creek and concord will be closed to the public until tuesday, september 6th that was contra costa county firefighters who recommended this closure because they're concerned about two things. fire
9:31 am
danger during the hot weather this weekend but also the potential for people to walk and bike these trails during the heat and underestimate the conditions. firefighters don't want to have to use their resources, rescuing people who might get heat exhaustion on some of these remote trails. park goers we spoke with this morning were surprised by this decision. get it if people aren't being safe, but on the other hand early morning doesn't seem dangerous, so i don't see the problem. people make informed choices and be smart about their capabilities and whatever and bring water and all that stuff. it seems like a prudent thing to do at this point in our summer. pretty dry out here. absolutely yeah. safety first. yeah. i won't speak in getting this. now these open space areas will reopen to the public tuesday morning, september 6th but again walnut creek and conquered, closing all the trail entrances to the lime ridge, shell ridge and aquilani's ridge open space areas because of the excessive
9:32 am
heat and the heat advisory expected throughout the region this weekend live in walnut creek, ali rasmus ktvu. fox two news, and the governor is urging everyone to reduce their energy use during an extended heatwave. we are anticipating this extreme heat to be a length and duration likes of which we haven't experienced in sometime governor signed an executive order, which helps the state have more flexibility to meet the demand. it will allow power plants to increase output and gives some large customers the ability to use backup generators to lessen too mad. we've been working with businesses and our industrial sector have been incredible partners in the past to work to reduce their demand and as well in the next coming days and will continue to work closely with them as they work our way through this sunday and monday, expected to be the hottest days of the heatwave and thus the most challenging days for the power grid. i'm here to talk about. triple digit attempts forecast for the bay area is breeding murdoch with the national weather service breeding. thank you so much for
9:33 am
joining us today. we appreciate it. thank you for having me britain. we know that the next few days will bring the hottest weather of the year. but will it break records? so we're in an interesting spot with some of our records because if you remember back in 2017, we had a high pressure sitting right over california. this one's a little bit more off towards the east. so we're not the main focus of this high pressure. but that year it broke a lot of our all time records. if you remember that's when san francisco hit that 106 degree mark and that that's a strong record. luckily for us this time, we are still going to be seeing some of that marine influence. just see breezes coming through will help keep those coastal areas cooler. but those in inland areas like livermore. we have that approaching 110 degrees and portions of the east bay as well as in the north bay and then certain points of the big sur coast might hit 115. we have a few spots that look like that. and then overnight temperatures and fortunately during this time , especially as higher elevations might only see lows in those nineties, so this is gonna be warm through and
9:34 am
through its not just daytime warrant for worried about the interior areas are going to be something that people who live in those areas will definitely want to watch. now you just run through some of the numbers and what will be affected the most here but there is there anything exceptional about this particular heatwave? that's of note. well it's going to be one of the longest heatwaves we've seen so far this year. we've actually been pretty lucky spring. we didn't really see that early warm up right before summer where all that fog kind of builds back in. so this is going to be our more prolonged heat events so far this year. as far as september goes, this is where we start to do you see summer heat events since we do start to see the marine layer kind of ease off into this portion this season, so it's not uncommon for us to see this kind of heat, but the fact that we haven't seen it so far this year means people might not have the tolerance for it. so we need everybody to be nice and alert for it. all right, so that that is the one note that that white people should look out for this now? the fact that this heat wave is happening across the entire state. should we look at that as something significant?
9:35 am
well this is a very large high pressure that's not just affecting the state but also through the great basin. everything so there's gonna be a lot of people trying to escape this heat, and it's not unprecedented for us to see high pressures of this magnitude across the region, but still something that people really need to be planning for, and this will have. this happens around this time. almost every year, so it's going to be something that people really need to plan for, and not just for themselves for their kids for the elderly. and for those pets planning is planning is key here. you know one thing when you hear about whether getting this hot you hear about what's happening in south pole down in antarctica. is this climate change? or is this a cyclical temperature change? i am. as far as uh ah, climate change goes again. this is the time of year that we do expect this kind of stuff and again. we're not completely breaking records here. so um, it's not as far as the weather service to say whether or not this is gonna just as all climate, but we are
9:36 am
starting to see some of these warmer chins get warmer. so this is something we are observing, but i can't unfortunately comment on that. yeah all right. so um what? what do you want people to know, as we head into this the next few days. the length of time. that will be happening that will be experiencing the heat. so i've been telling a lot of people. this isn't a sprint. this is a marathon. we're going to be seeing warmth during the day and then warm overnight. if you have, like a brick building that's hard to cool down overnight and a lot of our nighttime lows. when i tell you that the loser in the nineties that's gonna be happening right before dawn, so it's not a whole lot of time to cool off tonight. so if you can't find relief during the day, and you can't find relief during night, your stamina is going to be really affected by this. so be prepared for the long haul. and some of these cases, all right. you said it there because we haven't had all year. this hot people may not be prepared, but they should be on alert for this heat wave that's coming. britain murdoch with the national weather service. thank you so much for
9:37 am
