yesterday afternoon and has already burned 5,000 acres in shasta county north of lakehead, about 8 square miles of land. this is a fast-moving fire because of the ideal conditions flames need to grow and spread quickly. it's in a part of the state with timber and thick brush. several small mountain towns have had be evacuated. so far there are no large towns being threatened. however, the city of dunsmuir is under an evacuation warning so be ready to go at any time. amtrak's coast starlight service is stopped between sacramento and klamath falls, oregon. 45 miles of i-5 are closed in both directions from 10 miles north of redding to about 4 miles south of the city of shasta county at mott road because the fire is burning on both sides of the freeway. 17 trucks were reportedly abandoned on the interstate yesterday and at least two burned. the thick smoke is likely going to remain trapped in the lower drainages for a while as humidity recovery is expected to remain poor with very warm temperatures today. we just spoke with a fire official who explained the
kind of crews working on the scene now. >> we'll have crews actively engaged in fighting the fire, as well. aircraft will be available to us as is safe to do so. >> reporter: about 600 firefighters are trying to put it out. some have come from maine to help out. he cause is being investigated by shasta-trinity national forest. they believe it's human- caused. >> thank you. next month marks one year since the devastating tubbs fire in santa rosa. this morning, the "pressdemocrat" reports that the city's water system was so overwhelmed, there was little officials could have done to keep water pressure powerful in the fountain grove neighborhood. that's the conclusion of a long-awaited report on the performance of the city's water system. it also recommends several changes to the emergency water system. meantime, state officials now say the cost of dealing with last year's crisis at the
nation's tallest dam has climbed to more than $1 billion. the department of water resources says construction costs are driving the increase at the oroville dam in butte county. early last year a catastrophic failure of the main spillway forced nearly 200,000 people to evacuate. let's get a look at weather and traffic right now. what's going on? > we have lots of brake lights and not too much fog. >> it's cloudy out there instead. but we are talking about warming weather today but really tomorrow. that's when a ridge of high pressure will affect us all. the delta fire, humidity levels 43 to 50%. this is the time of day when there's the most amount of moisture in the air and unfortunately that's still not very high. so by this afternoon, it's going to be dry out there. temperatures 67, not much wind to speak of so at least that's giving firefighters a chance to get a handle on the delta fire. but it's going to be about 95 degrees later on today in that
region. here's a look at what's going on across northern california. coastal clouds is what we're seeing. that's what a lot of the coast is seeing. but around the bay area, it really has come in pretty thick. look at this mount vaca view with the gorgeous sunrise. fog and low clouds in some locations east of mount vaca. official sunrise is 10 minutes away. but for now we get this gorgeous glow. we'll take it. 50s and 60s in the area right now. so normal for early-morning temperatures. and then by this afternoon, we'll talk about pretty normal afternoon highs. they are warmer than yesterday because yesterday we were below average. onshore breeze right now but not too strong. not too bad at the foot of the maze. we always keep a close eye on that once the metering lights come on. you can see the backup isn't
quite stretched on the east shore freeway. that's good news there. about 20 minutes heading into san francisco. but once you get into san francisco, this is a live look 80 at fremont. so just as you are coming off the bay bridge, right on the skyway portion there, it is a slow ride heading through san francisco along southbound 101. this is due to two separate accidents. it looks like now in the clearing stages southbound 101 as you approach 280. it did have two lanes blocked so certainly causing some delays for drivers trying to get through the stretch but things should start to pick up 10 minutes from 80 to sierra point parkway. a bay area high school president and former principal is stepping down amid accusations that she did not report sexual crimes by faculty on her campus. anne makovec reports outside presentation high school this morning. - kathryn leehane - victim part of me is disappointed that it re we are reporter: big shake-up here outside this prestigious high school in san jose. ons of past sexual abuse continue to be a distraction for the school and bring negative attention towards presentation. it is my sincere

see the slowdowns and the backup is stretching towards 280 there. we have a cruising speed of 48 miles per hour. so this is northbound 880 just before the alameda, two lanes blocked. right now our travel times haven't caught up with these delays. but it's definitely getting slow out there if you are trying to make your way up towards 101. speaking of 101, here's a live look. this is right near north first street. we're just starting to see those crowds and things are starting to get a little sluggish as you make your way towards san antonio from hellyer. we have about a 30-minute ride so ten-minute delays there. 880, we are getting reports of a crash as you're just passing 238 and here's a live look and you can see how quickly that backup has developed. 880 is already a tough route especially for the morning commute. and now we're just going to see those delays stick around. it looks like it's still blocking one of those lanes. so do expect delays if you are trying to get through san lorenzo and down into hayward down towards the san mateo bridge.
"slow, stop, go." we are in the red now for drivers heading into san francisco. over at the bay bridge toll plaza, we have been in the yellow this morning. but bell of seeing those crowds. about 25 minutes into san francisco. use mass transit. it's on time. neda has the forecast. this is looking good. we have a view from emeryville and it is looking nice. we do have gray skies out there. but we are used to that, right, all across the bay area. here's the bay bridge. you can see those cars, lights on the road but also the cloud coverage may linger through -- before your lunch break, we're hoping. it's always nice to have a sunny lunch break if you enjoy it outside. but yesterday definitely staying stubborn. today it's looking like higher level cloud coverage out there. the sunrise officially happening about 2 minutes ago or so and here's the view from mount vaca. there's thnglothe ground
and across the valleys, across the north bay, visibility low. around the coastline, look at that. usually you have patchy fog. half moon bay has 10-mile visibility in the clear. that's perfect. petaluma, 6-mile visibility so it's improved a bit over the past 30 minutes but some of these spots along the north bay coastline you may see some fog. by 11 a.m., inland will be sunny. the sun will heat things up warmer today, a ridge of high pressure bringing us more heat starting today but really heating up for tomorrow. that marine layer should be back again tonight and, yes, again tomorrow morning. but then again it should burn off and keep you sunnier on friday into the weekend. overall, west wind is still coming in at 8 miles per hour so not too strong. but through fairfield it's of course breezier as you see those numbers there. overall for the golden gate bridge, this cloud coverage is sitting right at the very, very top. so for drivers, no problem.

headed. right towards california. and then it's just going to hover here for a few days. southern california in the magenta, that's a sign of triple digits. for northern california numbers in the mid- to upper 90s for a lot of inland communities. not quite in san francisco or by the coastline. that's where it should stay fairly comfortable although it will be rising a bit tomorrow. so mid-70s tomorrow around the bay. the beaches a few degrees warmer. but really, it's inland communities that will notice the change. so from the low 90s to the upper 90s and then staying in the 90s through monday. tuesday, though, that's when temperatures go down. back to you guys. time now 6:52. the dmv is reaching out to tens of thousands of californians admitting to a big mistake. >> and a shake-up at a high school riddled with complaints of sexual misconduct. part of the principal's reasons for resigning coming up next. get to the ross fall fashion event... ...and get the brands you want... check this out. ...at "oh, yeah" prices.
