into this virginia metro station. streets in dc looks like rivers. at the white house, the rain flooded the basement where the press has its workspace located. prenup crews were called into drain puddles of standing water in the underground area near the west wing. that's bringing our chief mineralogist, bill martin. did you see the picture of the water pouring into the metro station? >> oh, my gosh, right? max so much water so quickly . >> you think about those metros, even in san francisco, when enough rain comes and it will drain into those lowest points. i think it might've been washington, d.c. a few years ago, we had some serious mentor flooding. with that said, forecast highs tomorrow will be a little warmer than today. these were the highs from today, not that impressive. certainly, for july, 79 in fairfield, 79 in antioch. those other hotspots. highs tomorrow, antioch and fairfield and low 80s but it is still going to be below average temperatures with fog along the coast and slower than average burn off for parts of the bay area.
6:48 pm
it was really slow today. it won't be that slow tomorrow. that dropped all the rain. this area was the issue for washington, we are seeing some severe weather and potential severe weather from -- in the northern plains, north dakota, south dakota, all the way south towards kansas and you have this system out here which is going to bring rain to the pacific northwest and really, we are all connected so what i mean by that is what happens there kind of, what happens here impacts what is happening there especially if you go from west to east. with the system here, as it moves in, it will keep us on the cool side and barrel off into the northern plains and create problems for us in a couple of days or data half. look at the low clouds and fog. in far inland it is. it is already 40 to 50 miles inland toward the livermore valley. it is making its beeline. in fairfax and around the petaluma area and a casio, another cool day tomorrow but quicker burn off.
6:49 pm
there is hamilton in the distance, blue sky, good air quality. that the upshot to the pattern. i got a nice email from a guy who said i love this cool weather and i'll be honest, i do, too that you get this kind of air quality. it is not pinched down really narrow so the air mixes and the fire danger is not ridiculous. it is not good because it is summer but it is not horrible and that is really important, especially around the fourth of july. there is the forecast for tomorrow, little warmer than today. settle changes, tomorrow and wednesday but by thursday and friday, it warms up. these are not massive changes but it will warm and be a little more than subtle. it will be a settle plustalking by thursday, it goes from tomorrow, 83 in the hotspots, 85, these are the hot spots like antioch and then we get, by the weekend, back into the low 90s but no heat wave, just a little warmer.

after today's latest move in 3 years apparently long enough for the warriors to decide former first round pick damian jones is not part of the future. today, the warriors traded jones to atlanta. they saw lots of potential when they drafted jones 30th overall in the tucson thousand 16 draft which has never panned out for him here. he started just 22 games over his 3 your warriors career average just under 4 points per game and traded him away. the workers will save about half $1 million under the salary cap so that is important for them. in return, the warriors get power forward omari spellman from the hawks. now spellman probably makes the roster, like jones, drafted 33rd overall by the hawks in the 2018 drop. he is out of villanova where he helped the wildcats win a national championship as a freshman . >> a couple of years ago . >> yesterday's women's world cup final was the most wash soccer message match in the last few years. they out to the men's cup final by mint nearly 3 million views and today, the chance returned home to a hero's welcome. that is former santa clara star, julie ertz. a lot of bay area folks represented. she is first off the plane, showing off the trophy and alex morgan and megan rapinoe right behind her.

6:56 pm
matchpoint now, the family and a partisan crowd rooting for her. a great run nonetheless for coco gauff who became the youngest player ever to meets the rain draw and along the way, beat her childhood idol, venus williams so good for her. and as home run derby debuts, basement matt chapman hit 13 out of the park in cleveland, not bad but not good enough to make it out of the first round. we will have highlights coming up at 10:00 for you as we head to progressive year's all-star festivities. tomorrow's mid-summer classic is right here on fox 2. closer will smith will represent the giants and chapman is joined by reliever we offguard in a good >> we had were all excited to go and that i had to call her and cancel and she's like, i just figured it all out
