good morning. thank you for joining us. it is friday, last day of july. july 31st i'm pam cook. >> good morning, i'm dave clark. let's check your weather and traffic. steve paulson how does it feel? >> cooler for most. a lot of cloud cover will start to move in although it will still be hot but not as hot. there is a significant fog bank. there is a rip roaring delta breeze and all of that is translating into a cooler pattern. low clouds kind of muggy. there is a lot of moisture in the air. the humidity factor will be pretty high. pi row cumulus cloud. that intense heat and steep lapse rate is what you are getting. that creates a low cloud deck and high mid level clouds moving in. there has been a little bit of
rain down toward the monterey peninsula. that is a sign of some things to come. 60s on the temps. almost everywhere. maybe a few 50s but a lot of 60s. the breeze has cranked up big time out of the west. cooler out to the sacramento valley. a lot of cloud cover today and tomorrow. low and high clouds, some sun. the cooling continues not only today but into next week. 70s and 80s for most. all right sal. you're on a role with your duets. thank you, steve i appreciate that. we have to give credit top the viewers. let's take a look at what we have with the morning commute. traffic is going to get busier especially driving into san francisco. i can tell you it already looks like a lighter than usual friday. there is a little delay but it's not that bad get into san
francisco. also looking at a commute on the san mateo bridge. that looks good heading out to the high-rise. as we take a look at the south bay commute northbound 101 and 280 are doing very well. and there are no problems on highway 17 coming down to the bottom of the hill. there will be no bart service between san francisco and the east bay this weekend. transbay tube will be closed for a major maintenance. christien kafton is live to tell us how that work will be done. >> reporter: things looking good on the bay area freeways right now. right? so that might not necessarily be the case this weekend. that is what a lot of bart passengers are looking like. we are inside the west oakland bart station. right now open for business. bart passengers making their way on the trains but this station will be closed along with the transbay tube this weekend as passengers try to figure out how they will get
around. bart is asking anyone to make their way to the east bay to start planning now. bart has been notifying passengers of this major closure for weeks now trying to get the word out. it means there will be no bart service starting at 6:00 saturday morning. bart has set up a bus pass. but part is asking passengers to restrict their trips as much as possible so not to strain the system. riders say they understand the need for the repairs but they are still worried about potential traffic this weekend. >> i hate sitting in traffic and i work nights so it comes back at midnight and i worry about the traffic being bad. >> reporter: you can see the concern even about traffic at midnight. bart will be repairing an interlocking cross system. that will allow trains to switch to a parallel track.
now about 80,000 to 100,000 passengers take bart each weekend. many are stepping up to take care of as many passiers as possible. there will be increased ferry service and ac transit will be running transbay buses as well. coming back out to our live shot, you can see the rider alert here. this is posted at the bart station notifying passengers that bart station will be closed this weekend. keep in mind this is the first of two closures. the other one coming on labor day weekend. anyone needing to ride bart keep in mind the transbay tube and the west oakland bart station closed this weekend and it will be closed again on labor day weekend. for those drivers out there, you can anticipate possibly some heavier than usual traffic on the bridges just people trying to get back and forth. >> definitely. thank you.
6:04 is the time. you should also know tonight san francisco muni will temporarily suspend late night subway service. trains will stop running below martin street as work crews install a new communication system. service should be back to normal at 5:00 tomorrow morning but the friday night shut down will continue for the next six months. muni will run buses aboveground on the effected route. back to developing news on that major wild fire. the rocky fire has burned more than 13,000 acres and more homes and communities may be threatened. brian flores is back here in the studio. what is the latest? >> it is simply incredible how this fire has spread. yesterday at this time it was around 5,000 acres. it has now more than doubled in size. they have charred more than 13,500 acres and it's only 5%
contained. crews are having time putting a line around this fire. more than 600 people have been evacuated. so far three homes were destroyed and this fire is destroying more. >> the people that live within these areas enunfortunately the fire is move song -- moving so fast they can't keep up with it. >> reporter: the fire was traveling in a northerly direction. the concern is it may force more evacuations. an evacuation advisory not an order has been issued for the double eagle ranch area and homes along the highway 20 corridor and the concern is if it jumps highway 20, it could threaten the community of clear
lake oaks. for residents again an evacuation center remains at middletown high school. for those with animals you can drop them off at the social services parking lot. dave, back to you. a grass fire tore through a mobile home facility. both homes and cars were destroyed. it starts in an area known as pirates layer marina. the fire started in brush and trees behind the mobile home park right next to the marina and the winds fanned the flames. no one was hurt as people quickly escaped. a 96-year-old man has died after being badly beaten. his caretaker 57-year-old fialomoni is accused of beating
him. he died in the custody of police. authorities say after he beat 96-year-old solomon cohen he drove a van to san francisco where he hit a bmw. he acted aggressively toward that driver, tried to gain access to an ihop. when officers arrived they wrestled him to the ground and put him in handcuffs. that is when he had trouble breathing and died. time is 6:08. an alameda county judge issued a tentative ruling. 13-year-old oakland girl was declared brain dead after a tonsil surgery that went wrong in oakland of december of 2013. her family moved her to new jersey where she remains on organ support machines.

all with him. >> it brings back memories. they were very fresh definitely for me and members of my department. we were doing this last year. >> reporter: seen so many law enforcement gathered in one place for this somber reason is a stark reminder. the uniform comes with inherit danger. the badge sometimes a target. the job sometimes the ultimate sacrifice. >> it's a dangerous job. it's a dangerous job. >> reporter: you don't need to wear a budge and a blue uniform to know that. >> i know personally. i've had butterflies in my stomach for days and days. >> reporter: sergeant lunger's baseball team is mourning his sacrifice too. >> they are here to protect us, basically. there is just way too much violence. >> reporter: when we honor, sacrifice we are bound together
by uniform, by family. and by community. >> it's a sense of gratitude toward them for every day they put their life on the line for our freedom, our safety. >> reporter: one last fly over, one last tribute and one last goodbye. >> i pay my respects, i salute him. he's a hero. >> reporter: in oakland noel walker ktvu fox 2 news. >> our coverage continues online as well with more video and photos and we have posted clips of the service on our ktvu youtube channel. time is 6:16. a jury says sinbad's restaurant in san francisco has to close its doors. the port of san francisco sued the restaurant after the owner refused to leave pier 2 back in

we will start off with the low clouds. there is a fog bank out there. a lot of cloud cover is moving up. there is a line of rain over to salinas. i think it's heading to the santa clara valley and even toward lake county. there is some signs of that happening already. maybe they all get a break here. the forecast is tough because of the cloud cover. if that moves in, it may not be that hot. winds turning more westerly, south westerly but it will still be warm to hot. just not as hot as the past couple of days. north wind. i don't like that a little bit but i think it will turn a little bit. look at the cloud cover screaming in here already. look at this line forming from thunderstorm activity down
south of holly store. so it's heading pretty close to gilroy here. we also have a hurricane. hurricane guillermo it's moving northwest at 16 miles an hour. it's still days away but the track almost all the tracks take it toward the hawaiian islands but not until next wednesday. probably will. waters are pretty warm. 50s and 60s on your temps but a lot of identifys here due to the cloud cover and the clouds coming in. the breeze is out of the west or southwest and it's roaring. you can see the moisture streaming up there. that will really play into our weather. give us a huge cooling trend. in the meantime it's spinning in a lot of cloud cover. low clouds and high clouds. you can see that line. not a big deal but for early in the morning. a lot of monsoon clouds coming in. this will mean possible showers. maybe some thundershowers.
