most dangerous weather conditions you can have in terms of life. there's the fog. there's a lot of it. you can see it already shooting across -- it's kind of pixelated here. but the fog is pushing through san bruno gap. it's already making its way south of market early for this time of night. and there is the sea breeze, the green. i know that's the current temperatures but that's the sea breeze, isn't it? you can see it and you can see where it's getting and where it's not. it's not getting very far inland although if you notice napa and fairfield, right, the sea breeze is just -- it's a narrow gap, a draw, it will get you into fairfield and towards cordelia where the cool, moist air is going. go east if you want the heat. go west if you don't. there is west right there. the golden gate bridge, foggy. fog along the coast. tomorrow's fog footprint like today. tomorrow's temperatures just like today. around the bay. maybe a little cooler inland, too, a few more degrees. we did some significant dropping today. here's the real weather story, obviously cool coast hot

inland. but to me the real weather story is another week of there high pressure dome, locked weather pattern and heat advisory next week. another week of this which is sort of unusual when you see two weeks -- a week back to back like that. 103 in clearlake 103 in vacaville. those are the hot spots. 88 in napa. that's bearable. 100 brentwood. 96 in danville. that's pretty hot. 90 martinez. so you get the idea. a lot of cities there to look at but tomorrow is friday and the heat on friday is kind of cool because maybe you have some plans to go to a or someth whatever -- i think this is wood -- that's not wood but you know, this pattern -- ha ha! the fire danger is scary when it's like this. i don't want to -- you notice, we are not really talking about fire that today because we had a big push of humidity into the region which is so, so, so, so, so helpful. i talked about the overnight

temperature recovery. last night temperatures dropped a lot in the inland bay valleys like clayton and morgan hill and those areas. when you wake up in the morning, fires aren't such an issue or are not as much of an issue. >> i'm going to the drag races this weekend. >> are you going up there? >> i have never been to a drag race. i can't wait. >> it's going to be hot. >> earplugs. >> thank you. arizona is breaking heat records with temperatures topping 116 degrees in scottsdale yesterday. all that heat is taking a toll on the roads and the sidewalks. in fact, the sidewalk actually cracking apart in some places. officials with the department of public works in scottsdale say it's called a thermal heave and happens when extreme temperatures last for several days and then ... cool off at night. public works officials say they expect to fix dozens more cracked sidewalks throughout the summer. it doesn't cool off at night jon gruden and the raiders are in napa.

about 6 weeks out from the regular season. right? but we have to talk about something here so for the first time in 17 years a very familiar face was front and center as the raiders reported to training camp in napa. >> i'm john. >> reporter: we know who you are, jon gruden. it should be fun with him back at the helm. he said he would return the $100 million he is making if the raiders can't get it done. that's what he said. he said he will return the money. this is nelson the new receiver, lynch. conspicuously absence as the team reported today was their best defensive player khalil mack holding out for a new contract. reports are that he and gruden gruden was hired in january and the raiders' first practice is tomorrow. lots of buzz surrounding the 49ers after how they finished the season last year. but as scott reese tells us,

this team is not getting caught up in any of the hype. >> reporter: it is did i one of a five-plus-month grind, it is day one and spirits are high. >> we feel a lot better than this time last year. there's no doubt about it. >> reporter: good thing, given how poorly last year's team started. the finish of course a much different and much happier story. five straight wins have the 49ers on everybody's watch list. >> i think it's exciting for the fans no doubt about it. you know, it was a good end of the season but it sounds very cliche. it's a new year. >> i'm very aware of what's outside. if we start off with losses, that -- they thought they arrived. we were 6-10 last year. we don't think that at all. >> reporter: by special, talk of the return to the post- season for the first time since 2013. >> this is premature.
6:56 pm
we have the pieces and talent to be a play-off team. we have the guys and experience. we have the receivers. we have the quarterback. but it's about pieces playing together. you know, it's not robots. >> reporter: another thing that inspires confidence, locker room chemistry. it's indefinable but players know when it's there and when it's lacking. >> everything seems to generally enjoy coming to work and seeing everybody in the morning. i'm sure that probably will change in a couple of weeks when we're in training camp and we're angry and stuff. right now, it's good. >> reporter: scott reiss, fox 2. >> the a's are the story in baseball. they have won 26 of the last 33 games and right now lead the rangers 6-5 in the 5th. highlights at 10:00. news not so good for the giants as they get set to open a four-game series the with brewers. brandon belt on the 10-day dl. he was helped off the field
