a range in temperatures spread of about 30 degrees. what's ahead in the forecast coming up in a few minutes. mike, what's the issue with the this morning? kari, i told you we would show you the south bay so let's start with that map. mild slowing. it started to get slower. it's friday. we'll have a lighter morning commute. we have the concern south 880 and montague. there's a crash in the middle lanes. so watch that just south of 237. the rest of the bay looks great right now. great recovery. westbound is still slow out of tracy. at least it's moving. that's progress from the overnight fire. right back to you. let's get right over to that overnight fire in the east bay. "today in the bay's" sharon katsuda is live in livermore. what do you know? >> reporter: it's still very
windy out here. with daylight you can see exactly how far this fire spreads. the concern was it started on the eastbound side of 580 and then jumped both directions of the interstate 580 onto the northbound side. traffic is still backed up. this all started from an accident at around midnight last night and the big rig or pickup truck, we're still trying to confirm which one it was, whether it was a big rig or a pickup truck. the chp saying it hit the center divide and caused a fire. that fire spread to the other side of the freeway. at one point riding in the wrong direction because they were trying to get away from flames. fortunately the firefighters were able to put the flames out. the fire spread to about 100 acres but now it is completely out in all directions.
both directions are open. back here live, the traffic westbound is still backed up. i was sitting in the traffic eastbound. at 3:45 they opened up the lanes so eastbound is flowing smoothly. back to you. >> thank you, sharon. and to kari with more. you can she sharon's hair blowing around, i'm sure that wind played a role in that fire. will that wind continue? yes, it's almost always windy through the altamont pass. it's a low lying area where the wind funnels into the central valley. we've seen gusts up to 33 moils an hour. lock at how warm it is, another indication that air is moving rapidly and it's creating some warmer temperatures. as we also look at the humidity, it's been fairly low but will continue to stay 25% to 30% range. so that's very low humidity. thankfully they got the fire under control there.
sounds good. thank you. more breaking news in contra costa county. two deputies recovering after being injured in a deadly shoot-out that happened at the end of a long standoff on knightsen near brentwood. a s.w.a.t. team was called in at 1:00 in the afternoon. at 9:00 the gunman fired a shotgun. deputies shot and killed the man on the scene. two of the three deputies are currently being treated. our pete suratos is trying to get the latest on their injuries and will have a live report in the next 30 minutes. continuing our coronavirus coverage, the bay area added more than 700 new cases yesterday, surpassing 31,000 thus far. and new this morning new signs of slowing bay area spread. two weeks ago state projections showed a rapid rise in six bay area counties but now "the chronicle" reports the latest projections contra costa and solano counties with spiking numbers. the rest of the counties are

groups with, of course, social distancing and safety precautions in place. >> how important is it for you for him to be on site? >> it's very important. he has to socialize with kids and it's very important he goes to school. >> is that more important, though, than the safety -- >> no, safety is first. >> reporter: tonight at 5:30 the district will release more details about the return to school framework in a virtual town hall on zoom. you have the information for you right there on the screen. the board will also discuss the plans for the fall at its next meeting on wednesday. still lots of information to get out there to all the parents. reporting live, jackie ward, "today in the bay." tonight oakland school leaders plan to present their final report on the reopening. some parents and teachers have protested the idea, an idea the

we'll talk about what's ahead for the weekend coming up in a few minimum. any issues besides moving through the tri-valley right now, mike? yeah, kari, we have the slowing out of the altamont. we talk about that. thankfully it's back to normal after lanes opened. an overnight fire is why they were closed. we do not have -- we have slowing in the south bay. we're zooming in to the bottom of your screen, south 880 and montague expressway. we just got the all clear south 880 at montague. they just cleared all lanes. that's why we see the focus slowing. they pause traffic to clear all lanes from crash activity. slow from 237. 237 west getting over into sunnyvale out of san jose. an earlier crash slowed things down. looking at the rest of the bay a smooth drive for the silicon valley. the bay bridge toll plaza just paused in the middle lanes. back to you. what happened to "glee" star

for sure. you would have to stay in the man cave in our house because we live in a tiny house. >> we're in tiny boxes right now. >> it's about this big, our house. kari, a good thing we have a backyard although it may not serve us very well this weekend. it's going to be too hot. >> well, you'll have to get out the baby pool, kris. try to find ways to cool off. all of you. we are looking for ways to just stay cool in this heat, but we have the natural air conditioning as we look at san francisco. this is all fog right now. i know it's hard to see anything. it's been rolling across the city. as we look inland it's clear, it's sunny, and we are going to have temperatures quickly heating up. as we lock at where we are now and where we're headed, mid-60s at 8:00 and normally we're reaching 81 degrees. but i can't even remember the last time we had just normal weather. it's been so hot this spring and
summer, and that's going to continue today. looking at our temperature trend as we reach into the upper 80s by early in the afternoon, and that's about where our temperatures will stop in the south bay. but we're looking at some mid-90s in parts of the east bay as well as the south county. head further to the north in ukiah and clear lake. it will reach into the mid-90s. you compare that to the 60s along the coast. if you have some friends on the east coast, you might want to call them this weekend. they're going to be dealing with a lot of rain. tropical storm fay has developed. and right now it's pushing some of that rain up closer to new jersey and heading towards new york city over the next couple of days. this is going to be a soggy weekend for them along with high winds. and so as we go into the next couple of days that's something that may be in the headlines nationwide, that tropical system. as we bring it back home it's just hot. the extreme heat moving into the bay area we're not going to see that change at least for a little while but then as we
start to see our ocean breeze returning we'll see our temperatures coming back down a few degrees but it will still be a little bit warmer than where we should see the temperatures even in the middle of july so looking at highs that will reach into the mid-90s throughout the weekend for some of our hottest spots. and then for next week we'll bring it back to the mid-80s but no major changes in san francisco. at times the fog moving in and i think the fog will be even thicker tomorrow morning. so we're looking at a slight cooldown there as we go into the next several days. mike, how is it looking for the commute? drivers get ready to head out this 6:00 hour. kari, talking about that fog and i thought i would show that as well. the golden gate bridge and fog is there. it will not be a surprise for most folks and the light volume of traffic. do note it is there and so is the bridge, i have to reassure folks who don't know. the bay bridge, where we don't really have the fog and don't
have a major problem but we do have slowing in the middle lanes. no metering lights registered. there's slowing, though, because the crowd is building as you funnel down to fewer lanes and the incline. mild slowing. middle lanes show a bigger slowdown and no problem speeding in through contra costa county. alameda looks great. no major problems. recovery very nice. just slowing out of the altamont towards grant line road and that is pretty standard for a friday. 84 is cleared through livermore and slow 880 is clear now. the arrow shows where monday through thursday slowing. today is friday. back to you. >> all right, thank you very much, mike. it is 6:19 now. up next a message from bill nye the science guy. ♪ bill nye the science guy ♪ science rules >> how is that for a flashback? he wans everyone to know about the pandemic and the risk of

cierra. some tense moments and you can see why. take a look. there's all this dry brush. there had been fires along interstate 580 this past week and another one overnight. take a look. you can see along the hillside the charred area is blackened. it actually jumped the westbound lanes and started heading north past interstate 580. this accident that caused the fire happened around midnight and at one point drivers were going in the wrong direction to escape flames. very tense moments. i actually drove through this area at about 3:45 to get here to this live shot. it was stand still traffic. they opened east lanes at 4:00. no injuries, that's the good news. firefighters were able to keep this fire contained and put out at about 150 acres. now back here live you can see that westbound the traffic is
still pretty much moving slowly, at a standstill. sometimes it picks up a little bit. i think we're looking at the friday morning commute to work. all lanes have been reopened and traffic flowing smoothly out to tracy. back to you. >> thank you very much, sharon. 6:35 now. bad news for businesses in to ma county you see in yellow. the state watch list today according to "the press democrat." that means starting monday indoor dining, drinking at restaurants, bars, tasting rooms will all shut down for at rising covid-19 cases and ty supervisors plan to discuss ways to crack down on people who are not following the rules today. overnight california marked a new milestone in the pandemic. look at the number on your screen. confirmed cases now surpassing
300,000 people. it is the second highest in the nation behind only new york. as we have been reporting the state is setting daily records and confirmed cases and deaths. and now there is a shortage of testing kits. labs cannot keep up with the processing. places like los angeles are back to only testing people who have symptoms and several testing sites in sacramento and san bernardino county closed earlier this week because they ran out of testing supplies. renters trying to make it in the bay may have more luck finding cheaper prices in san francisco. rent in san francisco has hit its largest decline. rent down nearly 12%. and a 21% decline in lower pacific heights. in downtown san francisco rent is down 15%. now to something good in the south bay, a man's battle with the coronavirus nearly ended in

>> it's going to be foggy for the next couple of hours in san francisco as we take a look at this live shot in soma. i think the fog will be even thinkinger by tomorrow morning, so that's going to keep the city cool but will not help us out in the inland areas. if you're going to be heading out in spots like dublin, expect it to warm up pretty fast here so you want to get in outdoor activities early in the day, even at 11:00 we're comfortable but it heats up shortly thereafter as we look at upper 80s and some low 90s. reaching 95 in concord. oakland will only make it up to 76. and san francisco some upper 60s. half moon bay 59 degrees. a wide range in temperatures not only today but the next several days. we'll talk more about that coming up in a few minimum. mike, how is it looking for drivers heading across the bay area? kari, we checked out silicon valley. i saw a number of smaller incidents pop up. the only one affecting the on te

new answers and perhaps clues as to what other districts might look like in the fall as well. this morning we are looking at west contra costa county unified where we are now finding out students will start their year at home. let's go to "today in the bay's" jackie ward. jackie, a lot of us are wondering, you know, some districts haven't even made a determination so seeing what others are doing is kind of the best that we can do. right. i'm sure they're all tuning in to each other to see what one district is doing over the other. of course it's all a matter of if and when it is safe and they have decided to keep kids home to start the school year, which resumes august 17th. the district just released a framework of this outlined plan in two phases. phase one the nearly 20,000 students who attend the district's 54 schools will distance learn online with the teacher. the teacher can deliver the lessons from home or the classroom with a limited number
of high-need students. in phase two students would return to school in small groups with social distancing and safety precautions in place. >> how important is it for you for him to be on site? >> it's very important. he needs to socialize with kids and very important that he goes to school. >> is that more important than the safety? >> no, safety is first. >> reporter: tonight at 5:30 the district will release more details about its return to school framework, logon to the school website for details. we have the information for you up on the screen now. the board will discuss the plans for the fall at its next meeting wednesday. reporting live, jackie ward, "today in the bay." >> thank you, jackie. the trump administration is focusing on reopening schools in the fall even as those cases surge.
alice barr is live with a look at the pushback. alice? >> reporter: president trump heading to florida. the focus is not on the coronavirus. will be visiting with military trade there. difficult to ignore the fight as florida sees the largest surges in coronavirus right now. they reported 10,000 new cases.n part because that makes it easier to reopen the economy there are a lot of questions how this could be done safely. the cdc saying it will provide more direction to school but is not backing off its original
guidelines president trump considered to be too restrictive. top medical officials now saying that states need to pause where they are in their reopening and re-assess the situation even as we hear these repeated calls from president trump. pressuring schools to get that going. >> open our schools. stop this nonsense. we open our schools. >> we went from shutting down to opening up in a way that essentially skipped over all the guide posts. that's not the way to go. >> reporter: and when schools do begin this messy process of reopening, they are pointing out there are going to be a lot of extra expenses. many districts are planning to hire more teachers and staff so they can have fewer kids in the class room and buses, bring in new equipment, ppe and cleaning supplies. so many are now looking to the federal government hoping there will be funding help in the next coronavirus relief bill.
