inland areas like concord where it's 85 degrees and that mid-afternoon onshore breeze has started to fire up. these are the dry and breezy conditions we'll be watching. wind speeds 15 to 20 miles an hour. humidity levels in the 30% range. driest that we're seeing right now east bay counties and alameda counties. we'll see this repeat again tomorrow. warmest and driest conditions in the east bay and north bay. high temperatures for many inland areas climbing into the mid-80s. you saw the fog in san francisco. we're going to give you hour-by-hour outlook for your fourth of july forecast. what you'll expect temperaturewise and fogwise coming up around fireworks time. that's coming up in about 12 minutes. >> it's just around the corner. thanks, rob. not just concern about fireworks. cal fire is suspending burn permits. it banns all outdoor residential burning of landscape debris.
these areas are currently covered with dry grass, brush or leaves. they are making it a perfect location for wildfires to start so they're trying to do away with that risk. the fire broke out in the port of oakland last night. it quickly engulfed a piece of machinery. workers reported the fire around 9:00. it started in the engine compartment of a hydraulic lift used to move cargo containers around. because hydraulic fluid was fueling some of the flames they had to break out the foam in addition to the water to put the fire out. took about a half hour to get things under control. afterwards, they made sure no liquid was leaking into the bay. one person was taken to the hospital as a precaution. developing news out ofu rack where iraqi forces are pushing deeper into mosul as the battle to take back the city from isis intensifies. hundreds of civilians have now fled the city but there are thousands more believed to be trapped there in isis-held territory. air strikes are pounding the last pockets under isis control.
nbc's richard engel has the latest from mosul. >> reporter: we are now in the iraqi city of mosul. and a major offensive is under way to drive isis from this city. at one stage, isis controls all of the city of mosul, and this is a big city at its peak. 2.5 million people were living here. now isis just holds a small pocket of isil just a few square blocks really. we are now on a joint iraqi/american military base. it's a forward operating post. these are american military vehicles that you see behind me. the way it works is the americans generally stay on small outposts like this one, call in air strikes and iraqi troops do the ground fighting, advancing from house to house. we spent the last several days walking in that pocket of mosul where isis is still holed out. and it's very difficult terrain. a lot of damage. a lot of booby traps. that's one of the biggest ch challenges they're facing.
booby traps in the road. even houses have been booby trapped. what isis will do is they'll booby trap houses even while people are still inside of them. the original inhabitants. isis members go outside, lock the doors from the outside and when iraqi troops come by, they hear people trapped inside. they hear the screams. they will come to try and rescue them only to see the door or the house explode. american and iraqi commanders expect we'll see more of this. more booby traps. more suicide attacks. it's the final phase of this mosul offensive against isis. richard engel, nbc news, mosul. still ahead -- what's the payoff to work at the white house? new numbers show just how much some of the president's closest aides are getting paid. also, at 5:00 tonight -- it's not just hot shots on the ice but also models. two san jose sharks stars are baring it all for a popular
little rock nightclub this weekend has been arrested. the rapper performing when gunfire erupted inside a little rock nightclub this weekend has been arrested. ricky hanson performed and was arrested on outstanding warranted unrelated to the mass shooting. he's facing charges including aggravated assault and being a felon in possession of a gun. no arrests have been made in the power ultra lounge shooting which injured 28 people. multiple people there opened fire, possibly as a dispute between local gang members. two of the victims are in critical condition. the rest have nonlife threatening injuries. many of the president's most prominent aides are also the highest paid. a staff salary document released by the white house shows more than 40% of white house staffers earn more than $100,000 a year. 22 aides take home nearly $180,000 including that man,
steve bannon. that man, chief of staff reince priebus and kellyanne conway and press secretary sean spicer. overall, the trump white house is spending less on staff than the obama white house did but that's because there are about 100 fewer staffers under president trump. the median salary now is $89,000 compared to $73,000 under the obama administration. >> really, really different administrations. hard to compare apples and oranges. making sure the fourth of july holiday is fun and safe. >> the extra enforcement not only on the roads and highways but also on bay area waters. see the low clouds around san francisco. 76 degrees. san jose right now should see 80s in the forecast as we head towards tomorrow. a closer look hour by hour at your fourth of july forecast when we come right back. water... and authorites want you
