>> reporter: they know full well the nastiness could continue but they have a greater good in mind. >> no. putting us up is not going to stop someone from being a bully but saying over and over again we all are human may change some minds. if it helps somebody feel more confident themselves, somebody walk down the street without fear, somebody walk into a store knowing that store welcomes them, then we've done good in the world. >> i want to emphasize this is a grassroots campaign in part emphasized by a group called the la morinda diversity group on facebook. there are other groups involved, too many to name here. the school district has been supporting it. you can see that these folks, they just have some enthusiasm for being able to get shop owners involved in doing something, anything to fight back against symbols of hate.

forecast. but san jose, here's how you're going to experience this. and you'll be my example for the south bay. while the temperatures will be a little bit cooler than they were when we got that last influx of humidity last wednesday, thursday. levels will probably be somewhat similar. bottom line is it shouldn't feel as bad as you remember those last two days. likely on tuesday and wednesday you're going to notice the humidity come back. i'll talk to you about that for the rest of the bay area and we'll look at the 7-day forecast coming up in more detail in a bit. back over to you. in the more immediate future, smog is going to be a big problem in the bay area skies tomorrow. air quality managers have issued a spare the air alert for monday, asking commuters to carpool or take public transit to work to cut down on exhaust. a section of downtown san jose traed into a river of rainbow today for silicon valley pride. kpix 5's john ramos was there and tells us what started as a small people oriented gathering
has gotten a big corporate push. >> the parade is only five blocks long and there's more people marching than watching. they believe the fact it happens in san jose is a sign of real progress. >> reporter: it started quietly. there wasn't even a siren. but that's because this parade wasn't designed to force change but to show how much things have already changed. >> the people wanted to come out and show and now there was also a lot more corporate interest. >> reporter: the event changed its name from san jose pride to silicon valley pride, and the big tech firms were competing to show how inclusive they can be. >> it's really good because it's represented by all the big companies and i like that. i saw a lot of t-shirts, a lot parade o cporateaisco involvement but here they consider it a sign of progress that big companies are now proudly touting their diversity. >> i don't think corporations
until recently really believed it. i think they started to believe it because they realize that a diverse workforce is a good workforce. everybody is fighting for talent in this valley. >> reporter: with gilroy still fresh in people's minds, there was a strong police presence and long lines at the festival as bags were checked and people were wanded. but the mood seemed to be one of resolution rather than fear. >> we're here to support people. we're not here toe bhered.o srec rate love and that's what's important to us. >> reporter: there's a belief here that the tide of public opinion has changed in terms of gay rights and the surge of violence in our society is the last desperate act of people who cannot accept that the world has changed. >> if issued didn't exist, there would be no backlash. since this issue is so in the media and in hollywood and like more pushback to bee, a lot there. but people have to keep fighting until we truly get equality. >> the fact nothing scary
happened here today is good news. the fact we consider that news at all is a sad sign of the times we live in. in san jose, john ramos, kpix 5. >> this is silicon valley's third pride parade. it was halted for seven years because of lack of participation. meanwhile, san francisco police chief bill scott is inviting lgbtq community on how to increase trust and communication with his department. scott and his command staff are teaming up with pride for a series of so-called reflection and reconciliation sessions. the first is set for tomorrow evening at 6:30 in the glide sanctuary at ellis and taylor. it will be streamed live and broadcasted later on sf gov tv. the city of oakland is bringing in the army to help clean up the streets. this rat is one of the unsavory thing he's picked up on his
regular patrols through the fruitvale district. 30 army officers will join him and other volunteers for weekend clean-ups. he hopes the presence of officers in uniform can show people in the district that authorities care about keeping it clean. and then residents may be less inclined to put up with longstanding problems like homelessness, illegal dumping, and side shows. a fire at a san jose liquor store help put itself out when the heat rup tured a water line. the fire started just before midnight at a strip mall along north capital avenue. fire crews say when the fires spread to the attic, a hot water pipe ruptured. that doused the flames. fire was knocked down after that within 30 minutes. stores still have a lot of damage though and at least 10 neighboring businesses lost power. they don't know exactly yet what caused the fire. a popular park in san jose has been turning visitors away all weekend a family of mountain lions moved in. a mother and her three cubs were spotted last week at the rancho
san antonio open space in cupertino. at first just a few trails were closed. but when the mountain lions failed to show any sign that they were afraid of humans, rangers made the decision to close the park off completely. >> to get the animals unhabituated around humans, that way they're a little bit more afraid. that's what the end goal is. hopefully they'll move on to another area. >> no mountain lions have been seen today. the park will remain closed until further notice. the coast guard is searching for a missing man. they say efren cruz was out on indian slew when his inflatable cr bee sng for him ever since. sparks fly at a side show. too bad for the participants because they had an audience bkt critics of his former teammate
driver spun so fast, their cars threw sparks. this happened friday night in the area of huntington driver and stanford court. police on the ground quickly rushed in to stop it. police conducted a pair of dui tests. a pair of suspected catalytic converter thieves in san rafael got themselves busted because of their own car. one car was hit last night in shoreline parkway. a short time later, an officer stopped a car with no plates. those catalytic converters are expensive. the suspects alledgedly used a saw to take the converter. officers say they later found two more of the catalytic converters in their car along they're now both behind bars in the marin county jail. we're less than two weeks away from the grand opening of
the new chase center in san francisco. chopper 5 flew over the waterfront arena and got a look at the freshly installed logo on the roof. we'll be getting a closer look at the finishing touches inside and bay area rock royalty will officially open the place on september 6th as metallica performs alongside the san francisco symphony. >> that will be a lot of variety. a spanish endurance athlete who sought out from sausalito 76 days ago just arrived in honolulu after paddleboarding across the pacific. >> a paddleboard. antonio de la rosa's daring 2900-mile trip was meant to raise awareness about ocean pollution. his highly modified 24-foot paddleboard includes sleeping quarters in the front. he arrived in hawaii yesterday after marking his 50th birthday at sea. and he celebrated onshore with an ice cold beer. he earned that right. >> he's the first solo traveler to ever cross the pacific on a standup paddleboard. >> he got his message out
there. we've been talking about what he did and how he's protecting the ocean. >> looks so easy until you try it. many locations may not notice much of a change tomorrow. we'll start off with a 24-hour change. san francisco, oakland, concord, i've got you guys on here as my representative spots, showing us the north bay, inland valleys. it's going to be 8 degrees warmer in the city tomorrow for san francisco. 5 degrees warmer in oncrd. we hit 97 today in concord. we're going to hit 97 tomorrow. it doesn't necessarily matter we're not warming up all that much tomorrow. we already did the warmup over the last few days so it will be hot for inland locations tomorrow but at least we're keeping these numbers out of the triple digits. there's good news. let me show you what the rest of
the daytime highs look like across the rest of the region. fremont, 87. mountain view, 85. 88 in san rafael. and there's napa up on top with a daytime high of 89. and we should get used to this. if we take a look at the long range outlook here, the six to 10-day probability map, the deeper the shades of red, the higher the degree of confidence temperatures are staying above average for this period. six to ten days out. where the 7-day leads off and going out to 10 days, we'll likely still see warmer than average temperatures. let me show you that comparison. i showed you what the numbers look like for san jose in terms of comparing what the humidity will look like. we'll see temperatures that will cool down by the time we get to wednesday and thursday. the humidity levels are going to increase. will you feel this? i think you will. you'll notice it's a little more humid. the timing could adjust a little
bit. but i don't think it's going to be as sticky as what we experienced last wednesday and thursday. here are a couple more examples for oakland. temperatures in the mid 70s. if the humidity gets up into the mid 60s, that's higher humidity than we're used to but the mid 70s are not all that bad. so i don't think you notice a big problem even if you notice it's gotten a little more humid in san francisco. strong onshore flow. we've always got relatively higher humidity. here's the 7-day forecast. we've talked about staying warmer than average. we'll bring the numbers back down for a little bit on thursday. we'll get down to 89. then we'll climb back into the low 90s by the time we get into saturday and sunday. still warmer than average. that will be around 87 for inland spots. notice what's happening through the bay. we'll be staying in the mid 70s for daytime highs. so probably the most noticeable thing will be another dance with the humidity on wednesday and thursday. we'll see how that plays out. more detail as we get closer to it. vern, what's going on in sports? >> we've got sports settling in
visitors not only took in the stunning zoo at san francisco's fort point, they also took in classical music accompanied by waves crashing in the background. it's all thanks to an organization call pian-francisco which plays pianos there for everybody to enjoy. >> music belongs everywhere. to find a musical instrumenting especially something as precious
as a piano here is special indeed. it brings new life to this place that used to be so very bustling. >> not all concerts were impromptu. local musicians were drafted to perform while park rangers were on hand to tell stories about the past. >> one of my great fantasyicize ies is to do the late show, stop in, loosen the tie with my soda and sit at the piano and tickle the ivories as i play with the band. >> do you know how to play the piano? >> chopsticks, does that count? >> i took piano for five years. begged dad to let me quit. he said son, one day you'll say i wish you made me practice. and he was right. >> wise dad. >> there you go. >> you cantihat. >> i know. i'm still young. >> i can still learn. but first, a little baseball up top. no matter what happens to the as in this playoff push, giants fans can always say yeah, but

late show, a must in sports. get the names of these athletes right. right? tanner roark of the as. >> a lot of people will just kind of look at it and say oh, it's roarke. >> i said roarke one time in front of my grandma. my grand ma is like, 4'11", maybe 5' and she got on me. i try to tell people it's roark. they can't. it's ro-ark. it's simple. little league worerreot lou. or rng t make it 3-0. ru.losia won it 8-0.

i'm going to run for president. >> we've heard that line a lot this year. this is the first time we've heard it from a republican. conservative radio host and former illinois congressman joe walsh announcing today he will challenge president trump forth. >> we've got a guy in the white house who's unfit, completely
unfit to be president and it stuns me that nobody stepped up. nobody in the republican party stepped up. because i'll tell you what, george. everybody believes in the republican party. everybody believes he's unfit. he lies every time he opens his mouth. >> you say that but one of the things the white house points to and the president points to often is just about every poll shows 80% support for the president among republicans. >> they don't have an alternative. >> walsh was elected to the house in suburban chicago in the 2010 tea party wave but lost a 2012 re-election bid and has since hosted a radio talk show. he told abc's this week that trump is, quote, nuts. the president's re-election campaign issued a one word statement in reaction to walsh's announcement: whatever. on the democratic side, three candidates are polling in the double digits. their competitors are hoping to

ended up being our presidents were in the single digits at this point in the summer. >> reporter: democrats started choosing their nominee based on primary elections. george mcgovern, jimmy carter, mike dukakis. current candidates whose national polling average is not in the top three are hoping to pull off a similar feat. candidates like kamala harris, pete buttigieg, beto o'rourke, and cory booker, all of who are in the single digits. demacy lives in the bay area and is the campaign manager for cory booker. he says after labor day, more people will be paying attention to the primary election and that will be good for booker. >> once we get on that debate stage in a couple weeks, you'll see us tick up and ultimately we
want to peak in february, in march. here in california and in april and beyond. >> reporter: melissa caen, kpix 5. >> president trump appeared to soften his tone at the g7 summit in france today. david daniel reports the white house later offered its own interpretation of what he said. >> reporter: global challenges in the spotlight. world leaders at the g7 summit in france discussing everything from trade and the economy to iran and the global climate crisis. one hot button subject also on the agenda, the wildfires raging in the amazon. >> we all agreed to help as quickly as possible the countries that were affected by these fires. >> reporter: with france's president emmanuel macron pledging help but also demanding international pressure, even threatening to ditch a european union trade deal with brazil over the country's response to the fires. but not everyone is onboard,
including germany, the uk and eu president who stands by the trade deal. >> this is about to be or not to be. at the same time you offer financial help to fight the fire. >> reporter: and in a surprise twist to the already tense meetings, iran's foreign minister flew into the resort hosting the g7 to meet with his french counterpart about de-escalating tensions with washington. >> we'll do our own outreach. but i can't stop people from talking. if they want to talk, they can talk. >> reporter: as for the u.s. trade war with china, president trump sent mixed signals. >> do you have second thoughts? >> i have second thoughts about everything. >> reporter: aides later clarified that he wanted higher tariffs. david daniel, kpix 5. meanwhile, president trump says the u.s. and japan are close to a major deal on trade. japanese prime minister shinzo abe said there's still some work to be done but both sides agree

blasting fans in indianapolis for the way they said farewell to his former stanford teammate and their now former quarterback, andrew luck. plagued by a ceaseless string of injuries, the 29-year-old had planned to announce his retirement today after telling his teammates. that all changed at last night's preseason game when a reporter broke the story as luck stood on the sidelines in indianapolis. >> i'd be lying if i didn't say i heard the reaction. it hurt. i'll be honest. it hurt. >> 49er corner back richard sherman, he quickly leapt to his former teammate's defense, tweeting, quote, this is a very rough game. most people will not understand what we put our bodies through season after season. we don't need the sympathy because this is what we sign up for. but to boo a man who battled for that city is disgraceful. if the power does go out
during a wildfire, would you be able to escape from your own home? >> it's not just a little bit of panic. enthese types of situations, we see extreme panic. >> a new california law could save laws but it also comes at a cost. >> from the only enflorida file, proof that diehard golfers don't let anything get in the way of a good walk spoiled. and this can be a bit deceiving. that's a very gray view right now in one of our cameras. most of them don't look like this. i'll explain how the marine layer has gotten squashed and what that means for most of us feeling warmer tomorrow.

this guy played golf with a gator. he's lining up for a shot at a country club in orlando when a 7-foot alligator strolled past. the two seemed equally unfazed by each other. incidentally the golfer's name is steel, as in nerves of. which is required when you're playing golf with a gator or when you're forecasting the week ahead in the bear area. >> that's my job. a lot easier than working around the alligator trap or sand trap. let me show you how dramatically different it looks across the bay area. the camera that sits just beyond the poll booth. plenty of low gray. the clouds are getting pushed down and you can't even see the deck of the bridge out there. you can kind of see how it goes. if we look at this from the top
of the sales force tower, alcatraz sits out there. we've got this thin ribbon of clouds. it can't come in anywhere else because it's not high enough. high pressure is warming us up. and squashing the marine layer. compressing it. so it doesn't get far inland. san jose, sunshine. and especially once we go over the other side of the hills. that's looking over toward the trivalley. there's dublin. plenty of sunshine. and it's hot over here. 94 in concord. 90 in livermore. not far from this camera which is looking out toward dublin. 80 in san jose. and it's 66 in the city. here's where we're going tomorrow for daytime highs. very similar inland to what we did today. 97 in concord. 96 in livermore. 74 for san francisco will be a warmup. 90 in san jose will also be a warmup. we'll go up anywhere from 5 to 7 degrees around the bay. so we'll notice that warmup tomorrow. if you're inland, you already did the warmup. it was hot today. it will be hot again tomorrow. i mentioned some humidity coming our way from the leftovers of what was a tropical storm.
we'll switch the way we look at it. not looking at regular satellite. this is the water vapor available in the atmosphere from the storm. notice how it all gets pulled our way. by the time we get to wednesday, this map is now showing us the relative humidity. the pretty shades of green. show you where the relative humidities are going to by higher than typical for wednesday. if i say 43% relative humidity on wednesday, it probably doesn't mean anything to you. here's your perspective. this is what today's reading was, down in the low 30s. this is normal. this is what we're used to. wednesday will feel a little more humid. it shouldn't be as bad as it was last wednesday and thursday. the direction of that plume of moisture has to shift a little one way or the other and we can get a much more noticeable increase in humidity. let's go to the other side of the tropics. we've got a newly developed tropical storm. this is dorian. dorian is going toturn into a category 1 hurricane. now the concern becomes puerto
rico. that's wednesday afternoon. at this point the forecast for the eye of the storm goes south of the island. puerto rico's got to be on guard here. we'll be watching that story very closely. from now through wednesday. of course then the dominican republic is next on the list. and from there it gets a little too far out to keep forecasting that and we'll have more on dorian over the next few days. wednesday afternoon right now is the timeframe to keep an eye out for that. in the 7-day forecast you can see that warmup into the mid 90s. that gets us back up to 96 inland to peak then we'll come back down into the low 90s by the weekend. you've got to remember tuesday and wednesday will also have a little bit more humidity with it. it will make you feel a little more uncomfortable. just because we're super hungry...
california's big fire stormed over the past couple years exposed a deadly problem. >> elderly and disabled residents were trapped when the car went out rendering their electric garage doors useless. now a law has been designed to prevent future tragedies. >> it also comes at a cost. >> reporter: october 2017, the oakmont fire came raging into santa rosa. >> i was nev ever going to out run a fire. >> reporter: cheryl dean was trapped. needing a cane to walk prior to knee surgery, flames were closing in. the power was out. and she couldn't get her car out of the garage. >> i did everything i was supposed to do. i tried to lift it up. it only went about 12" above the ground and then it would stop. >> reporter: cheryl was lucky. a good samaritan lifted the door
