6:10 pm
degrees but that means we're now down to 99 in pleasanton. 94 in san jose. our heat advisory has now been extended by a day. what that means for your seven-day forecast coming up. clearing up some presidential confusion. is president trump under investigation? and is he really facing obstruction of justice charges? and this -- a whale of a tail near the golden gate bridge, this sight caught on camera. fires ripped through central
6:11 pm
6:12 pm
portugal. a lightning strike is bel the death toll continues rise after raging forest fires rip through central portugal. a lightning strieb believed to have sparked the blaze that has claimed the lives of 62 people. many were trapped in cars as flames enveloped and it is the biggest tragedy of human life known in years. and a tragedy on the high seas after seven sailors were found dead after their u.s. navy ship that they were sleeping on was severely damaged during a collision at sea. the navy destroyer uss fitzgerald was towed back to port in japan after it collided with a cargo ship. now the ship was hit where over 100 sailors were sleeping at the time of the accident. that led to a frantic situation where the entire crew was scrambling to try to save the ship from sinking and some of the sailors were trapped. there are several investigations trying to determine exactly why
6:13 pm
and how that collision happened. >> as to how much warning they had, i don't know. that is going to be found out during the investigation. but it was a significant impact that the crew had to fight very hard to keep the ship afloat. >> it took 16 hours to tow that ship back to port. the president is not under investigation. that is what mr. trump's attorney is insisting. despite a tweet from president trump apparently stating other wise. last week the president tweeted, i am being investigated for firing the fbi director, witch hunt and today his lawyer said that is not true. >> the president has not been and is not under investigation. and that is -- the tweet was in response to the washington post story with no named sources whatsoever. >> the post reported that special counsel robert mueller was looking into whether the president obstructed justice and they will try to get to the bottom of the claims but that could take a while.
6:14 pm
the senate intelligence committee said it is only 20% into the investigation. top aides and allies are urging the president to stay off of twitter. on this hot sunday, to the golden gate bridge. beautiful view and people go to the bridge for the views but this weekend that is something even better. take a look at this humpback whale spotted near the bridge in all of their glory. this is video from a viewers captured at about 8:00 last night and you could see the waterpray from the blow holes and the pods th are passing through. experts say they are possibly chasing anchovies. >> i don't know a lot of people who would do that. >> unless it was on a pizza. >> humpbacks on the migration north to alaska this summer. so like human tourists they had to stop to eat in san francisco. >> announcer: now nbc bay area microclimate weather certified most accurate in the bay area.
6:15 pm
>> you have to get a meal. >> they saw the forecast and they left. >> and you won't find one with air-conditioning and that is unfortunate this week. >> and the 88 record high in san francisco, very uncomfortable but the hottest temperature, concord up to 108 degrees, technically that is hotter but hopefully you had a.c. in concord. in san francisco, still 83 degrees. that with the wind on shore but it is misting, the low clouds. so you have the fan starting in san francisco but the coolant hasn't quite reached the coast. half moon bay, still have clear skies but there where the water temperature is off shore in the mid-50s. it is a more comfortable 63 degrees. concord still 104. mostly sunny skies. sunol at 100. and let's show you san jose. still mid-90s after 6:00. now tomorrow as the winds pick up a little bit around the bay, it should lead to a slight drop in temperatures and we hope enough mixing of the air to prevent a spare the air day but
6:16 pm
with high pressure locked in through thursday, it is very likely we will see a couple more spare the air days before the end of the week. right now no sign of low clouds, in san francisco, we're watching for that to come to the coast later tonight. and storms in the sierra. it is trying to come close to the bay area, you see here in the future-cast, you may see high clouds pass the bay area but the showers are staying off toward the east. so anything that falls later tonight should stay east of stockton and sacramento. now watch the low clouds for tomorrow morning. could briefly pass under the golden gate bridge. these are the areas that might see just a little bit of cooling tomorrow around the inner bay and coast. but meantime, inland, that heat advisory continues and those temperatures will be staying hot as you'll notice, winds are on shore but the marine air itself likely compressed below a thousand feet and without that deep marine layer, you won't see any significant cooling inland. morning temperatures could once again be starting off only in the upper 60s around livermore
6:17 pm
and the tri-valley. that is a mild start. 70 this is morning. mid-60s around san jose and 50s closer to san francisco. so for tomorrow, mid-90s, around san jose and again hottest spot could be close to 100. maybe not as hot as 105 around the south bay today. tri-valley, east of 680, again the temperatures soaring above 100 degrees. 90s in reach for most of the east bay. around the peninsula, a little bit of cooling here as the winds turn slightly more strongly on shore, southwest at 16 into san francisco, should keep temperatures mostly in the upper 70s and for the north bay, highs mid to upper 90s. so here is your seven-day forecast. san francisco, notice the temperatures climbing again. wednesday and thursday high pressure will build, strongly back across northern california. it is possible we could revisit some of the temperatures again in the valleys. by thursday and with that in mind the heat advisory has been extended and friday we trend cooler but still in the upper 90s. we'll have to wait until next
6:18 pm
weekend before the temperatures drop off by next saturday and sunday. >> and it is still going to be hot. 90 des is much -- >> relative. >> 105 on thursday. rob, thank you so much. coming up next, a fire fight in southern california. the large brush fires burning right now and the progress being made. the bathroom.
