they're at the mercy of mother nature. a shift in the winds could spell catastrophe for areas that have been spared. >> we want people to be ready and prepared. we want people to get all their important things in their vehicles so when they actually get a phone call or the sheriff's department comes and tells them to evacuate, they need to get in the vehicle and leave. >> cal fire is hoping for help from nature. cooler temperatures or fog could significantly slow down the fire. devin fehely, kpix 5. >> they'll get a little bit of help tomorrow. cal fire has set up an evacuation center at carmel middle school. so far about 10 families are using it. in san jose police are looking for the suspect who stabbed and killed a man early this morning. it happened near the intersection of south second and martha street. police arrived, they found a male victim suffering at least one stab wound. he was rushed to the hospital where he later died. neighbors are rattled after waking up to a crime scene.

6:47 pm
skies except for along the shoreline. it's been quite a swing in microclimates famous for it. here's why. pacifica at 4:00 this afternoon was at just 54 degrees. just 35 miles away. it was almost 50 degrees, almost. 47 degrees. warmer over in livermore. that's such a broad spread and it's going to continue this week. you can see the low clouds coming through the bay area right now. still warm in concord. 97 degrees. livermore's got 92. here in san francisco, a refrigerated 60 degrees. sea breeze will strengthen a little bit tomorrow. as it does, it will bring some of the cool marine influence inland but it's not going to cool much. you'll still be in the low 90s tomorrow. better than 100 i guess. futurecast. you can see low clouds packing along the shore lines. tomorrow we've got low clouds that go in to golden gate and berkeley hills. predominantly sunny tomorrow
6:48 pm
especially as the day goes on. afternoon highs will still be in the low to mid 90s inland. around the bay will be in the upper 70s and at the shoreline, mid 60s. here's what's happening. high pressure off the southland will build in midweek. it's going to bring temperatures back to near 100 degrees. it's an up again, down again kind of week. coastal fog will cool a little bit tomorrow. but it will rebound to near 100 degrees inland on tuesday. and here's what's happening. reds are taking on the giants tomorrow at 7:15 p.m. if you're headed to the game, it will be fair but breezy and a game time temperature of 62 degrees. overnight lows tonight will be in the low to mid 50s. sun up tomorrow morning on monday at 6:08 a.m. and if you're heading out of the bay area for your monday. 106 at the end of the sacramento valley. fresno, 105. nice and mild along the shoreline with the usual low clouds. san francisco dead on cue for average. concord, a little bit warmer
6:49 pm
than average. we're back to near seasonal norms for much of the bay area including san jose's 84 degrees. tomorrow, plenty of sun in the south bay. mid 80s in a broad brush kind of way will do it for the south bay. low 90s generally for the east bay. you can get to brentwood, near 100. in the north bay, very nice tomorrow. summer-like, 80 in san rafael. 87 for santa rosa. they're smoking in ukiah and lakeport. 100 degrees up there tomorrow. extended forecast, we're going to be looking for temperatures to be in the low 90s inland tuesday and wednesday. we've got about 100 degrees for highs. as we get toward the end of the week, numbers remain near the upper 90s. so after we get this little notch in high temperatures tomorrow, the numbers come down 5 to 7 degrees inland. then they'll rebound. rebound you'll notice is a sports term. and we happen to be going to dennis o'donnell. >> hopefully the giants can rebound, keeping with that theme. the giants were the hottest team

6:51 pm
6:52 pm
here's the deal. they just need to come home. just bring them back to the bay area and that's the ticket. >> this was kind of a strange road trip. they had two off days. they're completely out of sync. both pitching, all over the place. had to be a quiet cross country flight home for the giants who went in to the all star break on fire, came out of it playing anything but. like a first place team. starters allowed 13 home runs in 43 innings. the offense, 9-72 with runners in scoring position. masters winner danny willett throwing out the first pitch. jeff samardzija continues to struggle with the long ball away from at&t. bottom of the 1st, carlos beltran takes advantage of the short porch in right field. that's his 21st of the year. 2nd inning, mark teixeira, he's
6:53 pm
hitting only .188. connects for a solo shot. samardzija has now given up 15 of his 19 home runs on the road. and this pretty much sums out the way things are going for the giants. starling castro, great diving stop, gets the out. mack williamson for some reason takes off for 3rd. down by three runs. that run is not going to do you any good. dead duck. yankees win 5-2. jesse hahn and the as looking to remain hot against the as. striking out four. he left in the 8th. as up 2-0. the first batter, logan forsythe, ties the game. two-run shot meaning no win for jesse hahn. but in the bottom of the inning, billy butler goes deep for his third home run of the year and that turns out to be the game winner. good weekend for the as. they win and are 7-3 since the

6:55 pm
instead it was konta, seizing momentum in the third and final set, she broke venus' serve twice and went on to win 6-2 in that set for her first career tour title. how about nascar. jeff gordon coming out of retirement at indy, replacing dale earnhardt, jr. who is out with a concussion. finished in 13th place. final seven laps featured two cautions and a red flag stop but all those stops could not slow down kyle busch who led 149 of the 170 laps to win at indy for the second straight year. picks up his fourth victory of the season. how about lake tahoe. final round. american century championship. steph curry, not great golf this weekend but showing off his rim protecting skills. blocking justin timberlake's shot. made management a little nervous with that diving catch. former athletic mark mulder shot to win the tournament for the second straight year.
6:56 pm
pros, final round, pgas, canadian open. par 4, 17th, second shot lands on the green. vegas shot a time round 8 under 64. that's going to win you a tournament, especially on 18. steve wyckoff goes for the beach to the water. and that gives vegas his second career pga win and his first since 2011. miguel jimenez trying to run away from the field at the british senior open. the mechanic who sees the four-stroke lead disappear. he finished with a 75. and paul took advantage. clinging to a one-shot lead on 17. gets out of the bunker. sets himself up for a par. shoots a 68 to win by two. his first career major title on the champion. i spent the last week in sierra
