from the time before. >> if we get into archaeological resources. >> reporter: :it's go 100 remains were found on this site, below ground work is on hold. archaeologist want to determine what's below and how to preserve the influence of the first bay area resident. >> reporter: they contributed in all ways to the american experience. that is -- needs to be brought to the fore. >> reporter: one of the ways dr. leventhal see that happening is with historical marker or statue similar to the ones in downtown san jose referencing the loney. the report on possibility of more remains at the far end of this construction site is due possibly by next week, we will let you know what happens. in south bend -- in south san jose, jesse gary, ktvu fox 2 news. today's temperatures were a little bit warmer in some places, cooler in others. so kind of split the difference
10:46 pm
and called it like yesterday. these are the highs today, temperatures tomorrow are going to be a few degrees warmer. more mid-90s, in the in the and bear valley but i think the difference will be negligible. fog along the coast right now, marine layer is fairly deep, 12, 1300 feet deep. so that means fog gets into the bay, you have it again tomorrow morning. then it burns off quickly. tomorrow probably the warmest day of the week by a couple degrees, that's the way it's tracking. sixty-six in fairfield, 63 in napa. the fog is out there, looking in san jose now, hard to tell if -- i think it is mostly just some haze off the bay. here is the fog forecast for tomorrow morning, there it is in oakland and fremont and san mateo. you notice where it isn't, not in the livermore valley. so inland areas are going to heat up pretty nicely. so yeah, tomorrow is like today but slightly warmer. we have this flatline of
10:47 pm
whether continuing, the purples are 100. so you will still find them. there's your temperature footprint for wednesday. thursday will be very similar but slightly cooler, purples will go a little more east. san francisco tomorrow morning cloudy until lunch tomorrow in san francisco, 63 degrees, for lunch time. and then 66 for the daytime high in san francisco. a lot like today. inland, where you probably notice the differences in brentwood and antioch and mid- 90s. livermore will be up in the mid- 90s, 91 in gilroy. and then the five-day forecast, warmest day of the week, most likely tomorrow. not crazy hot. exactly what august is supposed to look like temperature-wise. this whole week may be cool on the sand but the next two days very much what you would expect. cooler towards the bay area weekend which, i don't see any big high fire danger or bad air
10:48 pm
quality scenarios. so that's good right now. southern california is another deal. the guys, -- that fire is huge, winds are blowing and it is supposed to blow down there for the next couple days. vacancy winds 50 miles an hour and the flames we saw today, just stunning. tomorrow is going to come up and more programs. >> 1000 acres an hour. >> at 10:30 this morning and exploded. >> yeah. we will talk more about that tomorrow. coming up, giants and a's. and the raiders getting ready to head to green bay.

yet another innovation only at a sleep number store. mark is here now with sports. the giants just -- it's getting out of hand. >> first time since may 10 they have been knocked out of first place. there you go. >> they haven't played like a first-place team in a long time. as of tonight they are not a first-place team. the dodgers smothered philly and if it ain't one thing, it's another. another uninspired performance. nine wins, 20 losses since the break. not a feeding frenzy at at&t. for the players anyway. first inning, already down 1-0. to the pirates. buster posey hits one into triples alley. two runs a score. he has got a bad back so
10:52 pm
triples alley for buster, later into a key double play. he winds up with a double there, jeff samardzija gives up that lead quickly. john jaso, the former a's player with an rbi shot to the gap in left center. pick it up in the eighth, 3-3. it is derek law who had not given up a run in 19 appearances throwing to jung ho kang. to the deepest part of the yard. over and out. that his deciding it, runners at second and third, one out. that expression sums it up. one out in the bottom of the night, could not score. it's another defeat and the dodgers lead the west by one half game. if you're not involved in a pennant race, if you have any competitive fire, you want to knock off the first-place team. the a's wandered of -- they wanted a piece of texas. down in the lone star state, they were down 2-1 in the ninth, two outs, two on, danny valencia cashes in the clutch,
10:53 pm
base hit right-center, makes it a 2-2 game in the tenth. looks like it was there. yonder alonso swinging a hot bat of late, roped down the right-field line. he has got himself an rbi double as brett eibner will hightail it around to score. another for a 4-2 lead. carlos beltran hanging pitch, off john axford, base hit. two runs scored. it's 4-four. enter markson kinski in release. -- in relief. beans reinette odor, one out. the walk off hit batsman, that is a tough lot -- that stings a little bit. even the most fervent of 49ers fans couldn't be feeling overconfident about the quarterback position. colin kaepernick nursing the sore shoulder. forced to scour the does

anybody want me wire? they signed christian ponder, former first-round pick who has not played since 2012. now a nine or for the time being. the raiders really upbeat, as they break camp in napa, get ready for a flight to green bay for a game thursday. observers so far anyway really clueless. if you could not see how confident this team looks so far, carrying themselves, as one player told me, it is swagger, jekyll rio has brought it back to the raiders. >> the meetings and all that, when we are out in the meeting rooms there's always a good energy. coach del rio is playing music and you can hear coach kenny norton yelling and from the qb room all the way across the hall and the energy is there. >> the first thing he brought to the team was a tinge of attitude, a change of mindset, and brought us some swagger here.
10:55 pm
we love playing for our guy like you said that's been in our shoes before. has had a lot of success. so it's been fun playing for him and that's where it starts. >> there you go. i'm going to logically assume if you are interested in the olympics you would be watching it. or you've already heard that the sensational simone biles has added to her incredible collection, final performance, wins the floor exercise. her luggage back home considerably heavier, four golds, one bronze. team usa women's basketball onto the semis against either france or canada. overwhelming victory. 110-64 over japan. they were leading by only ten at the half. not an olympic sport right now but we had an olympian effort worthy of gold and wrigley field by one of the chicago cubs. he has this catch, anthony rizzo. first base, he will get up on
10:56 pm
the bricks there to make that backhanded snag. to really appreciate it, you see the frustration of the batter, he can't believe it. watch the replay. this is where you appreciate it. the coordination, that that takes to do, all in one motion, getting up that quick, that is a heck of a catch. by anthony rizzo. >> get up on the edge. >> yeah. >> he is at home. so he knows that while. >> oh, yeah. that is like a million dollar smile that simone biles has. >> yes. >> adorable. >> good for her. >> her baggage is going to be a lot heavier coming home. >> good for her. thank you for joining us. have a great night. see you again tomorrow.
