5:07 pm
the fire has burned nearly 518,000 acres, and it's just 31% contained. pg has said its equipment may have sparked the fire. well people with plans to spend a lot of time outside this weekend need to be mindful of an extended air quality advisory. it may look just a little hazy now, but air monitors have extended their advisory through sunday. meteorologist mark tamayo joins us now with a look at conditions moving wildfire smoke mark hi there under a weather pattern kind of developing this weekend's basically a lid in the atmosphere, trapping everything. not only the smoke but also pollutants so you will notice that hes possibly into the weekend. we've been saying all along the most days, not every day. that smoke is in the upper levels of the atmosphere, so we see it, but a lot of it's not reaching the surface. but of course, a lot of that can change based on the fire activity, with the fires burning around the bay area, so supplied to keep an eye on here's the satellite. we're not showing you that big hayes on at least that thin layer of haze in the satellite, but it's still showing up around the fire zone. instead we're actually showing you some
5:08 pm
showers will talk about the showers coming up with the next weather check in a few minutes. interesting live camera right now. league see the fog and then some high clouds moving in, but not much in the way of that real thick haze. but as we take a look here at the air quality center is the unhealthy air is kind of focused up to our north. you can still see actually, some moderate levels up in the north bay and then the good air quality and portions of the south bay. now, here's the forecast for tomorrow. moderate levels for most for the entire bay area, i should say. this air quality advisory continues into sunday as well. smoke forecast model keeping the higher concentrations up to our north. but still, as i mentioned, we kind of have that lid over the region so we could still have some hes not only in the saturday but also into a sunday but once again the real intensive smoke plumes right around the fire activity right around the fire zone, which you would expect. we are talking about heat up, though we'll have more in your forecast coming up in just a few minutes. thank you. none of the latest on the coronavirus pandemic. the first fda approved booster shots are now being administered. but as jonathan syria explains, the
5:09 pm

5:10 pm
areas with low vaccination rates, and it's hitting children the hardest. we know that most of the infections that is coming in through into schools is coming from high rates of disease in the community, but there are at least seven states restricting mask mandates in schools, including florida, which accounts for nearly one out of every five new infections in the u. s. governor ron de santis sticking to his guns, refusing any new mitigation efforts, but we were promised that they would end the pandemic lockdown. school closures mandates, and it just hasn't done that the number of new vaccinations is all so taking up slightly, the u. s is now averaging more than half a million doses every day, the highest number since june in atlanta. jonathan serrie fox news, u. s. health officials say more than a million americans had already received a covid-19 booster shot before it was authorized for people with weakened immune systems, the cdc says about 1.1 million people who received the two dose moderna and pfizer vaccine

california, did you know our homes share power? but when we try to stay cool in a heat wave our supply is pushed to the limit. but you have the power to keep us up and running! “i do?” yup, we all do! with flex alerts. they notify us when to shift our energy use if our power supply is stretched. so from pre-cooling our homes, to using less energy from 4-9pm, together, let's flex our power to save our power. sign up for flex alerts today. job postings and increasing number of employers, one candidates who are fully vaccinated against covid-19 get
5:14 pm
to be used. tom vacar tells us new data collected by indeed dot coms helps underscore this point. while it's true, at least for now, most job postings have no proof of vaccine requirements, the delta variant and concern over new variants looms ever larger as of the week ending august 7th the share of job postings required. covid vaccination has risen. 34% compared to the same week a month ago. job postings that require vaccination but not specifically saying a covid vaccination rose 90% employers, chen require vaccinations. for return to work or. coming on to, um, work with certain limited exceptions were going health and religion. the reasons are twofold. for a safe workplace and to give other workers, incumbent workers and new workers confidence that they can come back to the, um workplace and employers want to
5:15 pm
avoid unnecessary employee absenteeism, lost shifts and the worst case you could have a real mass outbreak on a on a site where you have lots of employees and. close proximity to one another and pretty pretty quickly you start looking at a lot of legal and financial liabilities. so far, this is a sprouting phenomena. you can see the numbers are going up. but in some ways what's interesting is the numbers haven't gone up more that will soon change substantially at the point where the fda moves moves into a place where it's beyond emergency use authorization, i would imagine we'll see more and more companies fall behind that and really start to mandate vaccination. in fact, act on friday, the silicon valley leadership group endorsed a plan to require its members employees to be vaccinated. the bay area council, a consortium of the barriers, largest employers are likely to do the same, very soon. companies are needing to be very careful and hedge their bets a little bit and avoid,
5:16 pm
you know, taking a lot of risk, even though we have more than three million californians on unemployment assistance, job postings this week or up 14% over pre pending mm days. tom vacar ktvu, fox two news. well the white house is calling on opec to increase oil production as gas prices here in the bay area and across the country continue to rise. there are concerns that the increasing gas prices and rising inflation could derail the covid-19 recovery efforts. last month, opec agreed to boost production in august by 400,000 barrels a day to try to level prices at the pump. but the biden administration says it's not enough during a critical moment in the global recovery. starting today, pay. parents across the country started receiving their second monthly child tax credit payments more than $15 billion is being paid out to families of about 61 million children. eligible families are getting up to $300 a month for each

child. the payments stem from the coronavirus relief package passed by congress in march. most families are getting their payments by direct deposit. the rest will get checks in the mail. oh and barrier weather today a little bit of a cool down, but we're tracking a lot of different elements out there. we have the typical low clouds and fog, but you may have noticed as a tropical clouds moving in from the south first yesterday and then once again another batch for today, so here is the kind of the breakdown here tropical clouds with the slight chance of a shower. i'll show you the radar. coming up in a little bit. we have the hazy skies with the air quality advisory through the weekend. of course, the typical low clouds and fog keeping the temperatures on the cool side right near the immediate coastline, the opposite of the coast, though for the interior, we are heating up this weekend, a heat advisory in place for all the areas in red. we could be talking about temperatures from 100 to 112 degrees. here's our live camera. we're checking out the fog and also a big batch of high clouds could feel a bit muggy out there and check out the satellite and the radar.
5:18 pm
you can see the thunderstorms out toward the sierra. we have some green offshore and if i come in closer, it looks like we have some showers and some thunderstorms closer to the dixie fire zone. the shower is the good news, but those thunderstorms the erratic winds kind of a big challenge for the fire crews. so unfortunately some thunderstorms around the fire zone as far as our local picture, we have the high cloud just offshore, the fog and then. his green showing up on the radar. most of this represents the shower activity in the opera levels. but there is the chance this evening we could have a sprinkle or a light shower right near the immediate coastline just in the short term for this evening stay between about now and nine o'clock tonight current numbers kind of a break from the heat. san francisco 63 santa rosa 81 the creek 85 as he just kind of scan these temperatures. we could add a good 10 to 20 degrees to these current readings as we head into your has been here saturday forecast. here's that camera once again showing you the low clouds and the high clouds movement in in fact, the forecast models picking up on
5:19 pm
some of the high clouds not showing you much in the way of a shower activity, but we have that chance. in the short term, so we're gonna cloud things up once again for tonight. tomorrow will gradually scaled back on the cloud cover throughout the day. possibly some more showers and thunderstorms out towards portions of the sierra. but take a look at these numbers. really going to turn up the heat, but thankfully we have micro climates around here for the pay area this time year upper sixties for the coast, san francisco downtown in the seventies, and then we begin to introduce some triple digits out towards santa rosa out toward antioch and livermore in san jose in the upper in the upper eighties. so here's a look at your forecast ties for you saturday. what about for your sunday forecast? we'll talk more about that and have your full update coming up in just a few minutes. mark. thank you, a democrat willing to take over for governor gavin newsom. if he has recall get some new attention this week coming up, we'll talk with the political science professor about this dynamic in the recall race. one

5:22 pm
before the recall election of governor gavin newsom voters are seeing sample ballots hit their mailboxes, sonoma state university political scientist david mcewen joins us now with some of the analysis on the state of this race. david thank you for joining us. i want to jump right into it. let's get right to, uh, this survey usa poll. it shows it's a real head scratcher here. republican talked to host larry elder comes in at 23% in this new poll. republican businessman john cox, 10% 11% of people not choosing anyone. but the real
5:23 pm
shocker here is a democrat on that ticket. a youtuber. his name is kevin up. pef wrath is in the lead at 27% 1st off david. no one was even talking about this guy. not too long ago. where did this even come from? well look, this is about how the recall ballot is set up for democrats. it's a very blue state, so how democrats would vote on question number two. gavin newsom and his team have said, look, leave question number two blank, and there are a lot of democrats are going to vote. they're gonna vote heavily, obviously, on question number one, they're going to vote no on the recall, and that leaves. what does that alternative? look like? the newsome team weighed heavily on not having an alternative on the ballot. the senator feinstein wasn't going to be there. there was going to be enough and coming democrat and all of a sudden you see the survey usa poll now the survey usa poll is not the best best methodology it over samples in some ways, but and larry elder is going to spend a lot of money. he's the republican
5:24 pm
front runner, but nonetheless, it is exciting and perhaps, and kevin showed up today at the newsome event he got kicked out by the new some staff in san francisco. interests will make political hay out of that as well. he also made eight major media appearances today, so this may be the high point of his campaign. but nonetheless, it's going to be an important moment because he'll serve as an alternative, at least in the near term as folks are getting their ballots. so is this chance here? does he really have a chance in this? do you think based on what your studied into this? so look, anything can happen and recall politics you you could have is the wild, wild west, you know, i mean, caitlyn jenner is not going to get double digits. john cox is going to be somewhere in the low double digits. kevin falconer is going to be someplace probably south of larry elder, but nonetheless, elder would be the front runner. could someone like kevin move forward if you will and be the alternative for democrats? sure, so could angeline the billboard queen of my life, she's on the ballot as well. so it does get a little
5:25 pm
bit wild. anything can happen. and after you have wildfires if you have an event that some scandal happens, all bets are off and. who knows what happens under that event, and obviously the new city. they're putting it all on question. one so, david, just break it down for us. what does newsome need to avoid to be recalled here in terms of the voting ballots, no scandal. no fires. no ps ps is no loss of power things that are beyond his control because republicans are going to blame him for everything that is wrong under the sun, but also if i could throw this in the news, um, team clearly doesn't have a fear of the number 13. so they're rolling out today. on friday, the 13th 11 4 days and they're gonna roll out the big guns here. andre democratic politics. the big deal. all of a sudden, i don't even like going to the 13th, florida high rise building. i mean, i can't believe this. maybe he's got something going for him here. let's talk about this for a second. uh who, uh, in terms of who comes out on top here? ah larry elder seems to be the
5:26 pm
front runner in this race. falconer is still trying to catch up here in this race. is that correct? yeah, that's correct. i mean, look, larry elder is someone who's built a media empire. he has a late entrance into the race. he's got money. and if you're the newsome team you want to contrast his controversial positions that he's taken on air over the last, say, 10 or 15 years, and you want to provide examples of covid rising in florida and texas. you want to put larry elder with all of that, if you can provide a contrast, so in that sense, the newsome team is going to do that there. interestingly they're both going after a subset of voters, hispanic voters because they seem to be hugely important, not just out of the census, but in terms of kind of splitting both ways on the recall question, and then where they go on question two interesting in terms of turnout here. this is a republican led recall. does that inevitably mean that more republicans might show up at the polls? or do we not know that yet? we do know that if republican effective registration even though it's lower, it's about one in four voters in california really
5:27 pm
about one in three about 33. they carry 90 to 95% of that number, which all the polls are telling us that then they have to get those no party preference. middle of the road, folks, and then that buoys up somebody like falconer, like larry elder, and that could help them, but that's still a long ways to go. it's still a democratic state, but newsom and his team have been slowed arrives and to respond to this, and there's still three more republican debates. that's my well. they seem to be taking it very seriously. now the newsome team is hitting the hitting the road hard this time around. david mcewan political science. professor at sonoma state university. thank you so much for your insight today. thank you very much. happy friday. the 13. all right. football fans get to take in a 49ers game at levi stadium for the first time in more than a year tomorrow, but one way to get to the stadium has changed will run through what to expect work to prevent wildfires pits conservationists against federal land managers in a new lawsuit will tell you about and
