the heat and the haze that we're seeing around safari west over the past couple of weeks. >>we are going to be seeing an increase marine layer this morning you can make it out here from berkeley staying with us a bit longer some tropical moisture to our south a cold front to our north and ample changes across the bay area as both of these patterns converged to make for quite the interesting change of pace ahead of us for the rest of the week. this morning, it's fog and a slight cool down we are going to be seeing this cooler air pushing in from the west now it is looking slim those chances of rainfall on friday at this point could see a couple of sprinkles. but it looks like we should be saying at least some light shower activity for the north bay comes saturday, this will definitely help out with the vicinity of the glass fire. don't want too much rain on a fresh burn scar anyways so seeing a light rainfall out there just to dampen things in the north bay is exactly what we needed. heaviest of rainfall staying to the north across the oregon border on up into the pacific northwest. so
a big change of pace in that regard but more so noticeable to the rest of us in the bay area will be just how much cooler temperatures are in the days to come and that cool down really kicks into gear today 50's 60's for coastal areas today while 60's and just barely low 70's for most of our bayside spots palo alto at 70 mountain view at 72 south bay temperatures in the mid 70's for san jose santa clara, and they'll peanuts you get it is a lot cooler and well whole lot more comfortable that we have been livermore just bear the low 80's same for you in concord yesterday was 90's in these areas so this is a solid 10 degree drop, oakland berkeley richmond 60's for you well low 70's in vallejo vacaville are warm spot in only at 84 degrees while santa rosa nevado at 74 degrees today. tomorrow's temperatures fall another 10 degrees for inland areas that will take us down into the 70's at our warmest where we remain through the weekend as i mentioned friday, those rain chances, not really
panning out so much just a slight chance of a few sprinkles saturday rainfall looks most likely in the north bay and it does look to remain on the lighter side of things which will be good news for the glass fire and other burn scars helping to just dampen things just enough without a complete washout robin. >>thank you john we are checking in on your commute across the golden gate, there is a fog advisory in place, but it looks pretty good this morning heading across the span sometimes there's just so much fog. we can't even see the bridge or the towers. so although the advisory is in place at least we can see the traffic and it's looking good 19 minutes novato to san francisco here at the bay bridge toll plaza 80 west one of our busiest commutes during the morning drive and it's definitely picking up i don't see any big problems right now it's going to be clear across the upper deck, the skyway the central the james lick to aly all is well in san francisco. we're just looking at some drive times and looking at our freeways that are usually the first to start backing up in the morning highway force at the limit 5.80 looks really good for now livermore to

taking for coronavirus the second group of infectious disease specialist in san francisco are reacting to the president's diagnosis, treatment and subsequent behavior kron four's dan kerman has the story. >>president trump's covid diagnosis brought several ucsf infectious disease specialist together during the noon hour tuesday for an online discussion topic one how this super spreader event could have taken place in the white house rose garden, if you that were in fact the super spreading in fact that that there was somebody in there there's someone in there who has who either had symptomatic or now symptomatic disease. he was in very close contact with a number people and i don't think anybody's put that together yet. they also discussed how members of the public can reduce their risk during similar events. i think if you have a mask on and even even eyeglasses on and i realize we do. >>safety glasses clinically even i classes and i think that gives you a big leg up on
protection. >>i learned so much about coronavirus. and one thing that's for certain don't. let it dominate you. don't be afraid of it. >>since becoming infected. the president has chosen to downplay the seriousness of the virus. well these experts agree there are positive outcomes they've seen plenty that are not in all ages. >>just because some people do well which i'm really glad the i wish everybody would do well but we know work for particularly they have risk factors. i don't like down my my cart and so i think we all need to have them live our lives. i have a lot of respect for for this evening to everything we can try to forward action. the president also tweeted he's looking forward to next week's debate with joe biden. >>but medical experts say it's too early to say if the president's covid-19 issues are behind him this shots folks at home. >>the magic day 7. they sunny

at least near the democrat. the republican is objecting calling it unnecessary. whatever the outcome of the partisan divide over partitions vice president pence and senator harris have agreed they will be 12 feet away from each other. everyone in attendance except the moderators susan page of usa today and the 2 candidates will be required to wear masks. last week at the presidential debate, the cleveland clinic advised everyone to wear a mask to but several trump relatives and allies removed there's once they were seated. the president tested positive for the virus 2 nights later. if anyone tries to go mask last debate organizers say they will be escorted out of the hall. in addition all staff, an audience members. we'll have to test negative to gain entry. the candidates themselves will be tested before the debate. >>well that was dean reynolds, reporting and again the vice
presidential debate begins at 6 o'clock tonight. you can watch it right here on kron 4 and we'll also have reaction afterwards in an in-depth analysis with catherine heenan the host of inside bay area politics. >>and let's take a look at the latest numbers in california for covid in the bay area you can see that more and then 836,000 californians have tested positive. more than 16,000 have died and that includes 1531 people who have died of covid in the bay area. in our local first story this morning, san francisco supervisors have passed a new no-fault evictions ban to help all of those people having a hard time paying their rent during the pandemic kron 4 sarah stinson live in san francisco with more on how this ban. >>we'll work good morning sara. >>and they're good morning. yeah here in san francisco local leaders, they're stepping up and making sure that the thousands of renters who right now are being protected from evictions or
even further protected from evictions specifically from no-fault evictions and those are the ones. it's a tactic used by a landlord who saying i know i'm the move into my property, i'm going to demolish and i'm going to do construction to improve it and you have to move out and this would protect the renter from them doing that is basically a way for them to get somebody out without them not having any fault. the board of supervisors voted to ban this from happening in francisco through march of next year and this is really setting precedent from 4 other cities across the bay area in the state in limiting evictions during a pandemic data from rent board shows during the 4 month period between april and july the number of notices of evictions for non rent related reasons fell 69% from the year before the number of eviction notices for renovations also called an eviction ys has dropped 84% from this year to last year again this ban will
be in effect until march of next year the goal is to prevent people from being displaced during a time where many are still jobless and struggling to pay their rent i will say the trend, i'm seeing here on the streets of san francisco is just moving trucks on every single street and maybe landlords would actually be a you know grateful to have people move out because they're not paying the rent and people are just moving to places where it's just cheaper to live. for now reporting live in san francisco sarah stinson kron 4 news. thank you sarah. >>coming up we're going to take a look back at rock and roll icon eddie van halen. >>he passed away and we'll take a look at his life and legacy. and next as well it's win or go home for the a's today as they hope to stop the astros from advancing to the next round of the playoffs
