a live picture of the state capitol where a bill is in the works to make juneteenth a paid state holiday. juneteenth marks the date back in 1865 when union troops arrived in galveston, texas to announce that all slaves were free. president biden signed a bill into law last june making juneteenth a federal holiday. why are californians paying so much more for gas and when will the gas prices actually come down? those are two questions state lawmakers plan to answer with a newly formed committee on price gouging. >> why do gas prices continue to
7:11 pm
rise? that is exactly the mission of this committee, to follow the data and find answers and long term solutions so we no longer have to look at the future with distress but with promise. >> there will be a first meeting in coming weeks and here is a look at where gas prices are right now. the average in california is now $6.39, a 37% increase from the beginning of the year. drivers in san jose will pay $6.47 per gallon and in oakland the average is $6.50 while in san francisco it is $6.54. sky high prices at the pump have many people looking for cheaper alternatives. one such fuel is called e-85 gasoline sometimes called flex fuel. it is a blend of up to 85% ethanol, vehicles from ford escapes to chevy tahoes are already built to run on it. >> my fuel depth, $89 full tank. >> a tank of regular gas and it was over $95. it has only a 19 gallon tank.
7:12 pm
>> it has a few drawbacks, less fuel mileage than normal petroleum gas and a car would need a tune up just to use it. county health care clinics and pediatric offices are getting ready to vaccinate the bay area's youngest children against covid. parents can start booking appointments at the state's my turn website starting tomorrow. over the weekend the cdc authorized both pfizer and moderna's vaccines for children 6 months to 5 years old. and cvs will also start offering the vaccine at some of its locations tomorrow. to kids as young as 18 months old. walgreens will also offer shots but only for children 3 years old and older. >> for the first time in more than a decade cal fire is mapping out areas in the state that have the highest risk of severe wild fires. it last released the fire hazard severity back in 2007 and the areas in red show where the threat and concern is the greatest like in the oakland hills. parts of san mateo county coast
7:13 pm
and the eastern santa cruz mountains, cal fire says, are severe drought, well, it is not helping. >> there has been change in our climate especially in the last couple years. we've been seeing more often significant extreme wind events. it is the latest weather we are building into the current model. >> the final version of the new map is expected to be released this fall. cal fire hopes it will spark policy decisions on if or where new homes are built in high risk communities. a live look outside from the mount diablo camera. the hot inland forecast has triggered a spare the air alert for tomorrow. >> first alert meteorologist is here and it also triggered a first alert weather day. >> the second time in the last couple weeks we'll see the triple digit temperatures for inland parts of the bay area and this is going to be plenty warm near the water as well. a hot start to summer which officially begins at 2:13 a.m. tomorrow and will feel every bit of summer time by the afternoon. it won't be quite as warm or hot
7:14 pm
on wednesday but above average temperatures will continue through the rest of the week and eastbound into the weekend. we'll see more clouds by wednesday and thursday. maybe even an outside chance of a couple of stray showers. talk more about that in just a second. first let's focus on what things you like right now. blue skies overhead. temperatures still very warm inland. 85 santa rosa. livermore. #87 concord. san jose 80 degrees. mid 60s for downtown san francisco with a nice onshore breeze. we're not seeing the marine layer. the same area of high pressure in the upper levels of the atmosphere producing warm to hot conditions. tomorrow also really just compacting that marine layer so it is not going to be able to produce any fog as we head through tonight or tomorrow. temperatures tonight dropping down to the low 50s near the coast but most of us in the mid to upper 50s and low 60s to begin the day tuesday. our temperatures are just going to take off. full sunshine throughout the day. by lunch time temperatures are already going to be the upper 70s in san francisco. mid 80s in oakland. low to mid 90s inland. already by noon. we just keep warming up from
7:15 pm
there. highs will reach the low 80s in san francisco. about 90 degrees for a high in oakland with temperatures inland at or above 100 degrees. the hot spots for solano county and eastern contra costa county up to 106 degrees. low to mid 70s along the coast. that is going to be the place to escape the heat. i think the beaches will be very busy tomorrow but keep in mind with full sunshine overhead sand is going to be pretty hot. the same concerns we have with walking your dog during the day time and burned paws. sand will be heating up as well even with air temperatures in the 70s. forget the numbers for a second. just look at the heat risk. today's heat risk was at worst in the moderate category. the orange shading inland in the north bay, east bay, santa clara valley. tomorrow widespread orange. at least into the moderate category with plent" of inland spots into the high risk category especially for more vulnerable groups, young children, and the elderly. make sure you are checking on elderly neighbors and they're doing okay and keep yourself hydrated. find air conditioning or shade whenever possible. as we mentioned tomorrow is a spare the air day. the same weather pattern keeping
7:16 pm
the hot air at ground level is also going to be trapping urban pollutants specifically ozone into the unhealthy for sensitive groups category in inland parts of the east bay and santa clara valley. in terms of moisture heading toward us wednesday and thursday enough for some cloud cover. monsoonal moisture sneaking up the length of california. future cast indicating a few showers here and there through the central valley into the high sierra. this forecast model not indicating any of the shower activity in the bay area but outside chance we have to keep an eye on as we head toward wednesday and thursday. shower wouldn't be bad. but we don't want any cloud-to-ground lightning strikes for the entire state something we have to monitor later this week. tomorrow is the hottest day. still hot inland wednesday and thursday in the mid 90s in san jose. then back to more comfortably hot levels by friday, saturday, and sunday. near 90 degrees still inland but upper 60s and mid 70s around the bay with temperatures hottest inland in the east bay tomorrow. still around a hundred degrees on wednesday. that is not quite hot enough to trigger another heat advisory. the temperatures will reach the
7:17 pm
mid 70s along the coast tomorrow and back down into the 60s by thursday and friday with that kind of weather sticking around into the weekend. so the first weekend of summer officially will feel like it but not the peak of the heat like we're going to get tomorrow. >> summer is coming in like summer. >> yes. announcing its presence loudly. >> hello. i'm here. >> thanks, paul. years ago a local baker was told he could not pass out pride flags at a farmers market. how that incident propelled him
