livermore, 100 degrees. this was yesterday. today, still somewhat triple digits out there. so taking a look at the map right now. all of the advisories in yellow. the one difference here is near the immediate coast line and for san francisco. yesterday, they were under a heat advisory. no longer the case for today. and an excessive heat warning for the bay area sections, inland sections as you can see later on today. that's 10:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. current numbers, still very warm. starting off this tuesday morning in the 60s and 70s. except half moon bay. 59 degrees. we could see a bit of change primarily near the immediate coastline for today. here's the satellite view. showing you a few high clouds, moving into southern california and approaching the bay area. clear skies, right now, and still off to a warm start. and take a look at some of the projected numbers later on today. warm to hot. san francisco will go to mid- 80s. there's a chance that that sea breeze holds off. could be approaching the 90- degree mark. and still another round of
triple digits inland. we'll talk more about this heat. and maybe the relief from the heat coming up in a few minutes. let's check in with sal now, he's standing by with a traffic update. good morning to you, sal. >> good morning, mark. right now, we have a nice- looking commute for the most part. for the bay area. let's start off with 580 westbound. we did have a little slowing here through the construction zone, through the altamonte pass. no problems once you get to pleasanton and hayward, castro valley. this is a look at the oracle arena. and at the bay bridge, it is light. at 4:02. let's go back to the desk. an excessive heat warning in the bay area is in effect for much of today. record or near record high temperatures from 100 to 105 degrees. the heat is causing a number of issues, including power outages. and system wide b.a.r.t. delays.
cal fire hopes to gain containment. it's called the calaveras fire. it has burned 35 acres. this is video shot from skyfox 2, showing how close the flames came to several homes there. crews were able to turn back the fire. there's where you can see how close it got to the homes. according to the latest numbers from firefighters, that fire is 80% contained now. we should get an update in a little bit this morning. >> pam, fire crews are also making progress in the malec fire in san jose. it is 90% contained. that's expected to reach 100% later this morning. the malec fire has burned 210 acres since sunday afternoon, when it began in the coyote ridge open space. and in yolo county, all evacuation orders from the sand fire has lifted. that burned more than 3 1/2 square miles in a rural area northwest of davis. the fire started near the town
of rumsy. it's now 50% contained. investigators are still trying to determine how all of the fires started. your time is 4:04. the hot weather could shut down b.a.r.t. again today, causing system wide delays. yesterday afternoon, during rush hour, there were heat-related delays as long as an hour. affecting delays in all directions because of mechanical problems on the tracks. b.a.r.t. says the tracks tend to expand in hot weather. the crews are installing new equipment that can better handle the heat. pg&e crews are working around the clock to restore powers that were overwhelmed by the heat. street lines across the east bay were dark. and more than 8,000 homes and businesses lost power during the hottest part of the afternoon. but most of them are back online this afternoon. the biggest outages are in oakland and san jose. they have a combined total of 1100 customers still without power. our time is 4:05. the warriors are heading back
to oakland for one final game on thursday at oracle arena in the nba finals. last night, they pulled out an exciting win in toronto. i know you were watching. they still trailed the raptors, three games to two. kevin durant was on fire early in the game. had 11 points in 12 minutes. but then that happened. in the second quarter, his lower leg injury flared up again. warriors trailed by 6, with about three minutes left. then they got clutch shots from the splash brothers. >> gets a look. fires away. ties the game. steph curry from downtown. and in pursuit. iguodala. one fake, one dribble, one shot. got it. golden state retakes the lead. warriors took the lead in the final seconds. but toronto had a chance to pull out a win right there with kawhi leonard.
didn't work. it was kyle lowry, i'm sorry. got a shot at the buzzer. but draymond green had a piece of it. and the warriors won, 106-105. game 6 is thursday night in oakland. after the game, the warriors announced that kevin durant has an injured right achilles. he will have an mri today to determine how bad it was. kevin durant was on crutches and wearing a walking boot. they're expected to leave toronto around noon eastern time. the next update on kevin durant's health, probably won't come until late this afternoon. espn is already reporting, the warriors believe durant tore his achilles. durant seems to be in good spirits despite what happened. this is what he posted on instagram, i'm hurting deep in n my soul right now, i can't lie. but seeing my brothers get this
win is like taking a shot of tequila. i got new life. ubs. a swing of emotions can be a common thing in sports. this was the city and entire country on the verge of a championship celebration. and the raptors missed the last- second shot that could have won it all. both teams know the math of what needs to be don done from here on. but after the game, it was the emotion of one of the biggest stars going down. steve kerr said she didn't know what to say. >> i told the team, i didn't know what to say. on the one hand, i'm just so proud of them, the amazing heart and grit that they showed. and on the other, i'm just devastated for kevin. >> we went out there and gave
all he had, sacrificed his body. i just feel so bad for him, to be honest. >> i don't believe there is anybody to blame. but i understand this world. and if you have to, you can blame me. >> how do you guys press on from here, emotionally? >> we do it for kevin. we do it for "k." i can tell you this. he wants us to compete at the highest lev. and we'll think of him every time we step on the hardwood. >> for a couple of weeks now, we'll speculate about when the warriors will be at arackle arena. we now know it's game 6. this morning, alameda county fire investigators are looking for the cause of a fire inside an empty building in san leandro. that fire was reported shortly before 11:00 last night at the former dan martinelli poultry company on marina boulevard. there has been a homeless camp
set up near that building, which is not far from san leandro hospital. fire crews say there are no reports of injuries. new this morning, passengers on a flight from sfo made an unexpected stop in portland. look at this video sent to us by a viewer. alaska airlines flight 1323 from san francisco to seattle, was diverted to portland late last night. the cabin filled with smoke. firefighters were waiting for the plane when it landed. no reports of injury. we're still waiting to find out why there was smoke in the cabin. biden has events scheduled in four cities in iowa today and tomorrow. president trump is scheduled to attend a fundraiser and visit an ethanol plant. it's the first time the two will campaign in the same state on the same day. former red sox star, david ortiz is in boston now this morning, continuing to recover, just days after he was shot in an
ambush, in his native dominican republic. now, ortiz was met by fans when he left the intensive care unit of a hospital. on sunday, ortiz was at the dial bar and lounge when he was ambushed and shot in the back. ortiz was rushed to the hospital, where doctors removed his gallbladder and part of his intestine. his liver was also damaged. >> i do trust that he will be fine. that's all i want from everybody here, you know? just stay positive. and keep praying for him. >> now, police say the man who is accused of shooting ortiz confessed. but they would not elaborate on what the suspect told investigators. police say they do not believe robbery was the motive. >> wow. all right. our time is 4:10. still ahead, because of the bay area heat. many are headed for the beach to try to cool off. coming up, the warning from rescue teams, after a teenager was pulled under water. and a helicopter crashed into a high-rise in new york. killing the pilot.
we'll tell you what authorities are saying about the accident. and the local connection to the building involved. good morning. right now, we do have traffic that is moving along pretty well. if you are driving on westbound bay bridge, into san francisco. and in weather, the bay area in the clear right now. and record-breaking heat of course that was the big story yesterday. still today, heat advisories and excessive heat warnings. we'll talk more about your forecast coming up.
welcome back to mornings on 2. it's 4:14. immigrant women in the bay area, advocates and advertisers will all meet today, demanding justice for asylum seekers. they want the court to overturn the decision by attorney general jeff sessions to limit asylum. they say it severely limits access to asylum for refugees who want to escape violence in their native countries. the event starts at 10:00 this morning. it will be at the courthouse on 7th street in san francisco. federal investigators are search for example crews this morning, after a helicopter pilot flew over a restricted new york city air space. then crash-landed on the roof of a high-rise in midtown manhattan. the chopper went down on 54th
near sky avenue, near times square. if killed the pilot. we have also learned that the building is partially owned by cal pers, california state pension fund. for some people, the crash stirred up memories from the 9/11 attacks. i want to say the most important thing first. there is no indication at that time that this was an act of terror. and there is no ongoing threat to new york city based on all of the information we have right now. it is believed the pilot was the only person on board. he is identified as tim mccormack, a former fire chief in upstate new york. the helicopter was being used for executive travel. a new york congresswoman is calling on the faa to ban nonessential helicopter flights over manhattan. time is 4:16. a tragedy in san francisco, where a 14-year-old boy dropped at a
popular beach off chrissy field. yesterday afternoon, the teenager was with a group of friends in waist- deep water, when he lost footing and slipped. the currents dragged him out. rescue crews found him about 25 yards out. they tried life-saving measures, but the teenager died at a nearby hospital. the park service says since this is a federal property, not a beach for swimming, no lifeguards are out there. some regulars say you should stay out of the water because you may not know what is under your feet. because you're not really sure what is going to happen, once you're knocked off your feet. you're unaware if it's going to drag you back or push you forward. >> now, the teenager and his friends were not supervised by adults. he was a san francisco resident. he only turned 14 a week ago. for the third straight day, a spare-the-air alert is in effect throughout the bay area. air quality is expected to be unhealthy today, as we continue to see very hot temperatures. officials want to remind people to limit how much driving you do.

bay bridge is light. no problems here. we're off to a nice start. if you're getting up early, you're going to hit the road soon. i would say the entire east bay commute is to your liking. it's 4:18. good morning to you. and we're still talking about another round of warm to very hot temperatures now. some areas, coastal spots and maybe around the bay, we're going to shave off a few degrees. but still, plan on another hot forecast for today. now, the one change we're tracking here no longer a heat advisory for the coast here, and san francisco, no longer under a heat advisory. but san francisco, instead of the 90s. yesterday we saw that. this afternoon, we're thinking 80s. and basically a difference is how much recovery or relief you have overnight. the areas do that don't cool off much overnight. they have the excessive heat warning. here's the satellite, showing you scattered high clouds, moving into central california. we are waiting for the fog to come to the
rescue to cool us off. but most areas right now, still reporting clear skies. looks like half moon bay, one of the cooler spots. 59 degrees. san francisco, one sensor here showing 71. and 70s out toward concord and walnut creek. here's a live camera. looking at sfo. and the plan for today. starting out this morning in the upper 50s to the 60s to the 70s and into the afternoon hours. once again, another round of triple-digit heat. 102 degrees for the warm and the hot end of the bay area temperature range. so here's this area of high pressure. it has been in charge of our weather pattern. that offshore flow is beginning to weaken. as a result, we'll bring in some cooling for the immediate coastline. but still, another round of hot temperatures inland. this fog will come in wednesday, thursday and friday. that will bring in more pronounced cooling. just have to wait for that to happen. santa rosa, still 99ing degrees. oakland, 90. san francisco always a tough
call, with kind of a transition day like today. mid-80s, 85 degrees. san jose, 96. and san mateo in the lower 90s. here's a look ahead, your five- day forecast. you can still see temperatures, very hot today. i guess you could consider 97, still hot for tomorrow. but we are heading in the right direction. more pronounced cooling as we head toward thursday and friday. as we head toward the weekend, still pretty much the same story. by weekend, 60s, 70s and 80s. just relief on the way. just have to wait one more day. even into tomorrow. we want to remind you, too, to download the ktvu weather app. it has interactive radar. hourly updates and the seven- day forecast. and also really easy feature to upload your weather photos and video. the ktvu weather app is a free download. time now is 4:21. dub nation, fired up. they are heading home. we have reaction from fans who
