80 degrees, but that is about it. as of tomorrow, the temperatures will stay mostly in the mid-70s, and it trends that way to the bay area work week. you see some thunderstorms up in the mountains, and that is because of that low. this shows up in late august and early september when you get the storms around lake tahoe. again, that low pressure center is not supposed to be there. as long as it is there, we can look for to good air quality and mild temperatures and a low fire danger. at this time of the year, the fire danger could be way up. looking at the current image, you can seat the fog is coming in and it is going to be everywhere tomorrow morning. we are running a little bit warmer today, and you can see it is stretched out and the high pressure is here. this pattern, the people at the

shifted from learning environments to places they are not sure they are going to survive the date. >> we believe that doing this would not only be a public safety measure, but improving morale. >> reporter: the only gun sales should be only in the form of gun buybacks is what this one person says. president donald trump met at the white house today with the deputy attorney general and the director of the fbi. the meeting comes just a day after the president demanded that the justice department investigates whether or not the president's campaign was infiltrated for political purposes. the inspector general is now looking into that accusation. the white house confirmed the meeting with the deputy attorney general rod rosenstein and christopher ray lasted about one hour.

tiny particles of glass. police in baltimore are searching for a bank robbery suspect after an officer was killed in a confrontation there this afternoon. the female officer was responding to reports of an armed robbery. the department would not say how the officer died, but a witness said he saw the officer get run over by the suspect's vehicle. a volunteer firefighter a quickly arrived on the scene to perform cpr until an evidence arrived, but the officer was later pronounced dead. >> that is terrible! we are seeing something in this country today that we have never seen before. a number of officers have died in the line of beauty -- duty and is up this year. >> the officer has not been identified in his been with the department for four years. ringing the community and law enforcement closer together. >> this is the time for the community to step up and bring their concerns to be heard.

just going to really mess up the weather pattern in terms of what is typical for us. that high pressure system that sits between these two is weakened. it is allowing this cool moist air to push inland and does a great service and favor to the firefighters and men and women in that we have a much lower fire danger because of this pattern. we are seeing some lightning strikes up in the mountains. i will put this into motion over the last three hours and i will show you the motion of it. that is from that low-pressure system. it did it last week and it did it the week before with the same pattern. all that it means for us is a really neat thick marine layer which means below average temperatures and good air quality. the fire danger will
take a bit of a break. out on the bay, you can see there it is. typically, we would show it down here, the inversion, but look at where the top of it is. with those two low pressures in place, it is steady as it goes for us. fog and low clouds tomorrow at lunchtime, and then it burns back. the oranges are the 80s. most of us will be in the 60s and 70s with consistent temperatures in the 50s right along the coast. it will be 76 degrees in fairfield. mountain view will be at 69 degrees. your forecast high temperatures tomorrow will be cooler than they were today. again, i know that cal fire has a really good pattern here. air quality is good also because you get a lot of mixing in the
boundary layer where we breathe, but it is unusual. kensington palace released the first wedding photos today. prince harry and meghan markle were all smiles in the portrait shot by a fashion photographer. photos were taken in the green drawing room shortly after their two mile carriage procession around the town on saturday. it includes a group portrait with the queen and a lichen white portrait of the couple reclining on the castle steps. the warriors were back at work today preparing for the fourth game against the rockets tomorrow night at oracle. market is up next with sports -- mark is up next with sports. and --
you. [ laughter ] >> in the meantime, as far as the warriors go, they are just six wins away from another championship, but there is so many ups and downs and peaks and valleys. andre is now listed as doubtful as he hit me on the -- knee on knee with james harden. he had x-rays taken and they were negative, but he is probably not going to play tomorrow. in the meantime, let's talk about the story, which was steph curry all the way around. even though you are seeing kevin durant there, steph had 35 points and was 7-7 in the third period.
it was the largest playoff margin of victory ever for the warriors. it was the largest playoff loss ever for the houston rockets in the same game. of course steph returns in a big way and the shimmy is back and the touch is back from the outside. nobody on the warriors was ever worried. >> it doesn't matter because even on the biggest stage, he can have a difficult stretch, and he genuinely believed that the next one is going in. you can see that last night and i think he was one out of six in the first half from three- point range, but you knew it was just a matter of time and he finally got it going. we have seen that from him to out his career. it is a special kind of conference that very few players have. >> i made so many timely shots here, and he would just go up to shoot, especially when he is open, and you can hear the crowd roaring. that energy right there is good
for us as well. just to get the shot up, so many people are excited. >> tomorrow night is game for. kind of the -- 4. kind of a weird thing is that every game is pretty much a blowout. back east, it looks like the cavaliers are laying it on thick again against boston. in the early stage of the game, the cavaliers lee, and a big slam dunk and no, he missed it. the cavaliers come the other way and lebron drives and he is filed and accounts and that is a five-point swing and the cavaliers took off after that. you have to see this outlet pass from kevin love as lebron is like a wide receiver. look at love who is the best in the business and look at the body control from lebron. at halftime, it is 68-53 and it
looks like the series is going back to boston tied it 2-2. it is the phillies, one of the young and upper coming teams, and one of the youngsters that makes it happen is the shortstop with a beautiful play tonight against atlanta. here is your ballboy play of the day as you look at the ballboy in face first up against the tarp, and watch the replay. a beautiful back and to catch any holds onto the ball and he says yes, that is why they have be out here. enjoy it melissa. >> the last time i lost a bet to her was on an ufc fight, and she got to drive my car. i am going to win a bet. >> see you later everyone. good night.
