following near sacramento. a massive wild fire spreading to neighborhoods. you can see the structures here are fully on fire. this is a wall fire burning near the city. it has grown now to 2,000 acres. cal fire says the flames have spread. they are destroying at least ten structures there, including homes. evacuations are in order. the flames are only 2% contained. cal fire says one crew member suffered injuries in that fire. they are expected to be okay. the cause right now is under investigation. checking in right now with rob who is joining us here with his forecast. we already have this really dry weather. and then all the brush fire. >> just the worst conditions you can have. we're seeing that still underway. right now outside, though, beginning to see changes and changes that started out on the coast. the fog making a comeback, and that's the view now in san francisco. look at that. 65 degrees, sea breeze starting
to crank up. still 97 degrees. and our temperature trend today very toasty in walnut creek. let's fast forward to what we're expecting tomorrow. instead of near 100 degrees, still hot, but improvement over what we had today. the temperature trend was near 100 degrees today. let's take a look at tomorrow and you should see a drop of about 10 degrees for those high temperatures. still on the warm side, but clearly today the hotter of the two weekend days. the sea breeze is kicking up, making a huge impact. look at the temperature we're seeing now. almost 20 degrees cooler. and thanks to the south wind. so we'll see that cool down take effect for this evenings. eventually some misty skies and an even deeper marine layer. so morning temperatures 50s for
the first part. maybe a few low 60s and high temperatures tomorrow, at least 5 to 8 degrees cooler. upper 80s to mid-90s south of san jose. still some low 90s. you see those temperatures, too. low to mid-70s from oakland. you see temperatures mainly in the 70s and san francisco out of the 70s, highs mainly in the mid-60s. for the north bay, should stay away from 100 degrees. but still upper 80s and maybe low 90s to the north. what we're going to see in the seven-day forecast short term is a little bit of cooling. the sea breeze will kick up in response to this low pressure off the coast. but stay tuned. thursday and friday look at what happens. high pressure makes a comeback. it will strengthen. temperatures going back up again and we're going to have to watch to see if some monsoon moisture
will creep back up towards the bay area by next weekend. you have some cooling through the weekend. now at least two beginning to see tomorrow. but 90s probably doesn't feel much cooler for our inland folks. but monday through wednesday much cooler. look at the end of the seven-day forecast. back up there to see hundreds by next weekend. still to come, a major honor for barry bonds. how the giants honored the leg dare players ten years after his days at at&t park.
