5:04 am
wash the chalk marks and use special equipment to keep water ou the storm drai >> we have state and federal storm water guidelines that we have to follow. that means we can't let any of that water that we use to power wash go down the storm drains. you're into the thousands of dollars to clean a 1.5-mile stretch of lead to has chalk on it and then that doesn't take into account the tape because people were putting down tape, as well. >> reporter: so for years, people put down tape and chalk to mark their spots. that's not a good idea. i want to show you what we are seeing. we are seeing chairs on the street. this is downtown through danville hart street but what we aren't seeing is chalk and ta. we do see somef this -- tych

enforcement help from the community. fire officials say more people are now using the city's online fireworks reporting website. for the first time ever, it lets people upload photos and videos of their neighbors behaving badly. >> so if they are simply setting off what's normally called consumer grade fireworks, that would involve a citation. if they are setting off things like commercial grade fireworks, that could involve jail or prison time. >> reporter: the first fine for illegal fireworks in san jose is $500 going up to $1,000 for the third offense. now, when you upload a photo, video report to this website, they don't actually send an officer immediately. a lot of this is used for mapping tools so they can figure out where to spend their resources. anne makevoc, kpix 5. we have already seen an explosive start to the fire

5:19 am
with our temperatures. 56 in san francisco. livermore 55. oakland 59. concord 58. air quality today moderate range, very similar to yesterday. it looks like the smoke from the fires is blowing east and north because we are getting an overall wind directions. this afternoon 60s at the beaches, mid-70s in palo alto. 75 santa clara. so staying in the 60s and 70s around the bay area. the only 80s are in the north in clearlake and lakeport. 65 sausalito. tonight chilly so bring a jacket if you are going to stay up late to watch the shows. this low to the north will bring in the cloud coverage. that's why today is the coolest cloudiest day of the week and here's how it's timing out. your futurecast showing clouds at the bay but most of you across the east bay will be
5:20 am
waking up to sunshine and then this afternoon, sunny skies. now, here we are at 8 p.m. right there near the golden gate bridge, pier 39, the fireworks shows, that's where we are going to start to see those clouds roll through. it times out just in time for the fireworks shows by 9:30 looking like downtown san francisco will be coated in that low-lying cloud coverage. the fog will take effect and it will last through the early- morning hours. inland the shows should be under clear skies. it will be cool. so 60 degrees at 7 p.m. today. 56 at 9 p.m. today for san francisco. a lot of the country under this ridge of high pressure and moving west. so then the desert southwest will have excessive heat and red flag warnings. for us, our warming trend begins starting tomorrow so today the last day of cool air, because the next several days we are looking at a lot of heat so you may want to go to the beaches. we have a beach hazard statement in effect starting
5:21 am
late today through saturday. today staying cool below average. tomorrow we start to rise into the upper 80s. 90s all the way through tuesday of next week. we'll be right back after the break.

5:30 am
bay bridge. this is on the oakland side. we typically see the metering lights on around this time of morning. are they on? is there a backup? we'll find out coming up. good morning, everyone. it is wednesday, july 4th. i'm michelle griego. >> good morning, i'm kenny choi. in just a few hours, san jose's big 4th of july celebration gets under way. the rose, white and blue parade starts at lincoln high school at 10 a.m. the city says public shows are the way to go because officials promise to crack down on illegal fireworks today. anne makovec is live in san jose this morning with the city's new tactic. reporter: fireworks of all sorts are illegal here in san jose as we see in many bay area cities. but as we see all around the area as well, a lot of people are simply ignoring that law. i had trouble sleeping last night because of it. you might have had the same issues. so the city here is hoping for some enforcement from the
5:31 am
community and more people are using the city's online fireworks reporting website because for the first time ever this summer, it lets them upload photos and videos of their neighbors behaving badly. they have gotten 600 reports with pictures or videos so far and fire officials say, with fire conditions as dangers are as they are now, it is more important than ever to obey the law. >> the hotter it is, the drier it is, the windier it is, the faster any fire is going to spread. so we constantly are encouraging people to take care of their activities during fire season we don't have fires starting. fireworks are just one more way that fires can start. >> reporter: the first fine for illegal fireworks in san jose is $500, going up to $1,000 for the third offense. so the city's tool is called snap, click and report. you can find it on the city of san jose's website.
5:32 am
and we'll have it on live in san jose, anne makevoc, kpix 5. danville's popular 4th of july parade kicks off in just a few hours and some residents are already set up front and center. jessica flores is following this 4th of july free for all. we already see a lot of chairs behind you. reporter: that's right. there are hundreds of chairs here lining hart avenue for the 4th of july parade near danville. take a look. you can see there's some kids chairs and american flag chairs and everyone has their whole setup here. but this setup comes with some issues. they weren't supposed to set up until 6 p.m. yesterday. but people started setting up their chairs at 10 a.m. take a look at this video yesterday. the city spent a week asking people not to put chairs up. the city also says chalk and tape can't be used. but we're seeing plenty of that. the city says cleaning up is a problem because they have to power wash the chalk marks and
5:33 am
have to use specialize the equipment to keep water out of the storm drains. >> that would be great if everybody went along with the game plan. but a lot of times there's just a few people that want to get ahead of the game. >> so someone starts early? >> that's right. >> then it starts an arms race? >> that's right. >> reporter: now, the city says if your stuff was removed because you brought it out too early, you can get it at the maintenance yard of the city. i want to show you the chalking issues. i'm going to call out steve and over here robin. they put out their chairs and chalk. you're not supposed to do the chalk. so robin, maybe you want to clean that up and help the city out. but about 100 groups are going to be out here. the parade lasts for three hours. it all starts at 9 a.m. and if you are planning oncoming out here, again, you obviously can't park along the street. and all the streets along hart avenue will be closed. there will be some parking nearby and some street parking
5:34 am
nearby but again, if you are going to come out, come out early because it will be hard to find parking. in danville, jessica flores, kpix 5. thank you. in san francisco, we are hoping for clear skies by the time the fireworks start tonight. keyword is "hoping." saying your prayers and your "hail mary" prayers because it's not looking good for tonight. clear now. of course the show is scheduled for 9:30. hopefully it stays clear. >> yeah. >> but in the east bay they may have a little bit of luck. san jose the fireworks, east bay, concord, it will be clear. danville, as well. so tonight, around the water, this is normal, we do get cloud coverage. it's always that marine layer that comes through the golden gate bridge, hang around the bay, right over pier 39. so that's how it's timing out. right now looking towards the north you can see a layer of clouds over a lot of marines the north bay, that's where we are seeing some clouds and
5:35 am
it's all because we are getting that typical onshore breeze. it's happening again as it has been the past several mornings. we get the winds coming in from the south-southwest direction and that pushes in the coastal clouds. that's what we'll see tonight. then our weather pattern changes tomorrow. warming trend starts. so for today, it's the coolest cloudiest day of the week as we have been talking about all week long. you can see a few clouds at the golden gate bridge and most likely it will be back again around 7, 8 p.m. tonight. 56 degrees in san francisco right now. livermore 55. 58 in concord. so just be prepared for that. if it doesn't happen, you'll be pleasantly surprised. but either way it will be a gorgeous show. can't go wrong when you're by the bay watching fireworks with or without clouds. temperatures will be about 4 degrees below average this afternoon. san jose about 6 degrees below average. concord about 10 degrees below average. so looking at the forecast, coastal cloud coverage tonight at 9 p.m. so this would be your fireworks show forecast.
5:36 am
cloudy, gusty, by the bay. gusts around 18 miles per hour. inland areas places like concord and san jose, 63 degrees clear skies. and yes winds around inland locations could still be around 15 to 20 miles per hour. drivers are definitely keeping me on my toes this morning. and the challenge is to see where we find any delays. right now, we are in the green across the board. here's a live look. this is your 580 approach as you head on over towards the maze. typically this starts backing up around this time of morning and as you can see traffic is just fine in both directions. bay bridge toll plaza no metering lights. no backup. no delays. smooth sailing in both directions. no problems going into and out of san francisco. it may be a challenge this evening. bart starts at 8 a.m.
5:37 am
as well as muni on longer trains and on sunday schedules. hat's a check of your traffic; over to you. nearly 80 million people in the u.s. are under a heat advisory or warning. at the east coast soaring temperatures and humidity will stay through the 4th of july. we have a report that there have already been deaths and hospitalizations due to the heat. reporter: dangerous heat across north america has contributed to the death of a woman in pennsylvania on saturday and possibly another two people in kansas city, missouri, over the past week. six more heat-related deaths were reported over the weekend in quebec. new yorkers waited a long time this year for sunshine and warmth. >> we asked for summer. >> reporter: but long stints in 100-degree weather can cause problems. >> some of the mistakes are people lie down which can actually make your symptoms worse. so what you need to do is go co frequently. >> reporter: in new jersey residents at inglemore rehab and care center were evacuated
5:38 am
on monday after the building's air-conditioning failed. all along the east coast, people working outdoors have to find frequent refuge indoors. >> it's going to be warm. we get used to it. you hydrate all day. >> the building is about 122, 123 right now fluctuating a little bit. the building is going to be cooler because it's a different color than the black roof but it all radiates heat when you are working. >> reporter: the heat and humidity continues over the 4th of july holiday. >> there is a little relief. it's still three days away but it's cooler from here on out as a major cold front comes through for the weekend. >> reporter: in washington, i'm natasha chen reporting. >> the wildfires in northern california are generating so much smoke it can be seen from space. jackie ward has the latest. reporter: in a few days, this fire has exploded across parts of northern california
5:39 am
and it's haalready burned more than 72,000 acres and containment is 15%. this started east of lake berryessa on saturday. cal fire just ordered new mandatory evacuations for an area west of highway 16, south of old county road 40 and north of county road 53. no permanent residents in napa county are part of the evacuation. but sheriff's deputies are still checking this area for campers. winemakers in yolo county are hoping the flames stay away from their vines, of course. but their second biggest concern is the smoke. this vineyard is only 2 miles away from the front lines of the county fire, and the heart of this year's batch is cloaked in a smoky haze. one winemaker says the quality of his harvest will all come down to timing. >> it's not a problem if it clears out. with long-term exposure the grapes absorb the smoke and that's a big problem that will ruin wine. >> reporter: until now, the
5:40 am
fire has burned mainly along the coastal range and in the mountains. but at the southeastern edge, the fire is barreling downhill. yesterday, cal fire crews caught a break as the winds calmed just enough for them to use fire to clear out the dry grass in a controlled burn. still, fire crews say that because of the winds and dry vegetation, this fire has potential to keep growing. the families of victims in the ghost ship warehouse fire are reacting to the sentences just handed down in the case. master tenant derick almena agreed to 9 years behind bars. event promoter max harris was sentenced to 6 years. both pled no contest yesterday. 36 people died when the unpermitted work-live space in oakland went up in flames in december 2016. with probation and time served, ison lessn two in e.
5:41 am
the families say it's not enough. >> we want fair justice. we don't feel that in our opinion, that was fair justice. >> in april, investigators removed the last pieces of evidence from the site. officials say the art community hopes to turn the space into a school or museum. none of that can happen until the wrongful death lawsuits are resolved. time now 5:41. more than 100 people go to the hospital every year with injuries from grill brushes. how it happens and how you can avoid it. pluswhy one major bay area airports will stop all flights for half-hour tonight. maybe you could save energy by
