argen. >> august has been actually a pretty cool month. we are changing that. we started with the triple digit heat yesterday. tied records, broke records and today, get out there right now. doesn't look beautiful out there. the sky is clear. temperatures in the 50s in the north bay. now we are going to be hot again. don't want to scare you with this. but check it out. this is livermore at 106 today. 106 tomorrow. we do get a break as we go into the myth of t the middle of the week with 90s here. we're even warmer or just as warm into the triple digit heat once again through the end of the week. so it looks like september is starting off very warm. but the flag, yeah, it's blowing here. we've got our sea breeze intact throughout the day today. but i think the coast is going to be even warmer today than it was yesterday. so we had some patchy fog yesterday. today you could see from the san mateo coastline right here, that's about all it's going to take throughout the afternoon
5:49 am
for it to redevelop. and as a result we are looking at a very warm day today. in fact, the fog all the way down through the central coast and southern california. so we are still keeping our eye here on tropical storm harvey, where the rain continues to just pummel houston. you can see the reds, the banding here, and this is just not moving. it's at 45 miles per hour, continues to drift in and around the area throughout the next day. that's sunday. then monday. and you can see how the rain has been adding up here with over 20 inches east of houston. and then we're looking at the rain to continue into tuesda and wednesday. this forecast model goes into thursday. and perhaps friday. it's just so, so unfortunate with over 2 inches of rain additionally. now places have already picked up over a foot and a half of rain. so i heard one forecaster say that he wouldn't be surprised to see 60 inches before this is all said and done in some areas. so you really have to feel for those people. back home, we are looking at a
5:50 am
clear and not only comfortable shot this morning, but the air temperature is going to be warming quickly. san jose is at 66. 57 in gilroy. sfo on the peninsula, boy, it's going to be warm. well into the 80s. 55 right now in novato, and looking at temperatures even warmer out by the dealta now in the 70s. this is our east bay hills camera and it's clear the air quality is not great. it continues to be oppressive in our east bay, south bay. so keep that in mind as you're heading out. if you want to go to santa cruz, should be a nice day today. beach temperatures in the upper 60s, half moon bay. 78 in santa cruz with the water temperature of 58 degrees. so where is the fog? well, it's not until about 4:00 that we see it set up along the coast. and then it will keep us cool overnight tonight into monday. but we're still hot inland. so we've got our heat advisory. this is all along the bay shore here, and then the excessive heat warning from 95 to 108 again today. highlighted in pink there. so highs around the bay today
5:51 am
ranging from 68 half moon bay, 89 palo alto, 95, san jose. 101 in santa rosa with over 105 in our inland east bay. so 60s and 70s tonight. the accuweather seven-day forecast looking at slightly cooler weather tomorrow, maybe. i guess you could say that. you download our accuweather app, you can track some cooler temperatures in your neighborhood. but as we get into the first day of september, it is back to excessive heat around here. >> i love how looking at that graphic, 90s for midweek is considered the relief. >> yeah, august has been cool. so we're back to heat again. >> lisa, thank you. locks and keys can be traced all the way back to ancient egypt, and modern keys haven't changed much in over a century. that's why a startup that launched a few days ago told abc 7 news reporter jonathan bloom that it's time we unlock our homes with our smartphones. >> reporter: it looks like the office of any other startup, except for all these doors in the middle lead to another world
