darren peck joins us with good news. we may see some relief this week? >> i'm going to start out with the good news first and then i'm going to show you the not great news for tomorrow. here's the good news. this is the latest forecast that shows you how the smoke is going to behave over the next 12 hours. really this gets us from now through noon. you know the drill on this one by now. the deeper the shades of red, the higher the concentration of smoke. looks what's happening here between now and noon. we're starting it over here now. and we're advancing it. you can see how the bulk of the smoke is going to get pushed off to the east. something else you're probably becoming familiar with now. this is only showing you the smoke through the upper levels of the atmosphere where most of it is. the stuff down here on the ground is going lr an thi tout. you'ot starthere over nex 12rs we're going to start pushing some of this smoke off to the east and that's good news. let me get to the not so good news. we've got to take a look at where the air quality stands now. i'll go back to our image that
11:03 pm
shows us the air quality index. that 150 in red, that's the unhealthy. that's the view from our roof looking at the bay bridge. all these reporting stations are still red. we're still unhealthy. and for tomorrow that's the forecast. this was the good news juliette was talking about. from monday into tuesday we're going to go from the red unhealthy to the yellow moderate. none of the smoke forecasts are an absolute guarantee. however, the best information we have to go on is positive for much of this coming week. i'll talk to you about why and how long it might last coming up in my forecast. tonight a major step toward reopening. in just a few hours, more businesses will be opening their doors tomorrow in san francisco. kpix 5's betty yu on the services you'll finally be able to get indoors. >> that's right.
11:04 pm
many of these businesses offer personal services such as hair salons and nail salons and most of these presentations have been completely shut down since march. but reopening does not make practical sense for everybody because they can only serve a few customers at a time. >> reporter: for the first time in nearly six months, san francisco hotels will be fully opened for business. hotel zeta in union square says it's ready to once again welcome tourists. >> for those first time travelers, there's a lot of nervousness and tenseness for people who do arrive. when you come to zetia, and i can show many of the other hotels in the city, when you walk in, you'll see things like social distancing. >> reporter: the hotel has increased its cleaning protocols. >> the reality is, as doors open tomorrow, there's not going to be this sudden wave of people coming into san francisco. this is going to be a very slow buildup. >> reporter: it will be a slow
11:05 pm
buildup across many industries that have been given the green light. gyms and fitness studios will be allowed to open indoors at 10% capacity. >> i'm very excited that we're moving toward reopening and 10% is a start. financially, i can't make it work. and i'd have to start paying rent. >> reporter: 415 in mission bay, which offers classes on the mega former machine, would only be allowed to have two clients in the studio at one time. equinox is also holding off. it plans to reopen once the state guidelines increase to 25% capacity. hair and nail salons, massage studios, and tatto to reopen archer salon and union square will welcome customers back to a newly renovated space with covid-19 procedures in place, including this uv lighting sterilization system. >> that's where it's changed

11:07 pm
hospital. >> reporter: first responders rushed to the golden gate bridge toll plaza shortly before noon after reports of a gray lexus sedan going northbound swerving and colliding into the median barrier. they found the driver unconscious and moved the car to the next off ramp. that's when the first chp officer started convulsing. >> very quickly the symptoms escalated. he went down to the ground. we were told he began vomiting and convulsing. pretty large exposure. >> things are back to normal but the onramp and off ramp at alexander avenue shut down for most of the afternoon because of the substance that hazmat crews were dealing with. >> we deemed it a hazmat scene and crime scene. a little goes a long way with fentanyl. that's why it's so incredibly dangerous for any first responder who has to deal with it. >> reporter: three more responding chp officers and others including a tow truck
11:08 pm
driver also started feeling ill. >> they're going to continue to be monitored but we're happy they're back with us and appear to be recovering. >> reporter: seven total had to be transferred to the hospital, including the suspect. 32-year-old john parkinson shaw jr. of green bay. he'll face charges including dui and possession of a controlled substance. >> according to marin chp, all five officers and the tow truck driver have been released from the hospital. right now there is a $100,000 reward for information leading to the gunman who ambushed two los angeles deputies. we first brought you the story as breaking news last night, and a reminder, this video is hard to watch. surveillance footage appears to show a man firing several shots in the passenger side of the patrol car before running off. both deputies were hit and rushed to the hospital for surgery. authorities say their conditions are improving tonight. but that gunman still onhe get t to p w

the threshold the 49ers needed to kick off their season in santa clara. game would have been postponed if the air quality index hit 200 or higher. it did not. on top of the smoke, the pandemic is also making the season look drastically different of course. on a normal game day, levi's stadium packed with cars and tailgaters and people inside the stadium. but it saturday empty today. more than two weeks ago the 9ers opted to play its season opener without fans to comply with covid safety guidelines. >> it's different. it's weird. drove by the stadium today. nothing but smoke. >> it would have been nice to be able to go to a game this year but we all got to be safe. we all got to be smart about what's going on. úthe 9ers didn't win in the season opener. dennis has got all the highlights coming up on game day after the newscast. president trump is campaigning in the southwest, focusing on a rally in nevada tonight. despite health orders, thousan of supporters gathered inside a las vegas warehouse. the majority of the crowd wasn't

11:18 pm
on the kpix 5 app. in the forecast, i'm going to start out with something to look forward to. i showed this at the top of the newscast. but i want to just review once again the forecast for air quality this week. first of all, we've got to talk about tomorrow. it's still bad. all those red dots in a row there on monday. tell you that tomorrow's air quality is likely going to be just as bad as today. but then things get noticeably better for tuesday, wednesday, thursday, and maybe even friday of next week. i want to show you why that is and when that may come to an end. take a look out in the pacific. we've been pointing this out for the last several days. that mass of clouds out there is part of a system. there's some rain out there. there's going to be a good amount of rain with that coming into oregon and washington. we're not going to get much if any of this. but it's a significant rain maker for oregon. to aospheric river of the season. here we are in the middle of september. we've already got an atmospheric river. that's a good sign.
11:19 pm
as that's coming onshore, look what the winds are doing. the low driving all of it. there's the moisture getting pulled in. along the stronger winds. that's how we're going to clear the smoke out. this is different than what the last three weeks have looked like. we've not had a significant area of low pressure like this come in and break up this static area of still stagnant air. it finally happens on tuesday. that's what it will look like. it will look much prettier in the air once we get there. it's impossible to say how much of the smoke we're going to get rid of but we will get rid of a lot of it. we may get it down to moderate. look at all the rain they're going to get in oregon. good news for them. they've been inundated with their own share of devastating wildfires. we're not going to get much of the rain out of it, not from that system. even though this is great news for tuesday, wednesday, thursday, friday, probably even saturday too as far as air quality is concerned. all that depends on what the wildfires do. that's the wildcard.
11:20 pm
if anything sparks in an unfortunate location, we could be right back in this. but for where things stand now, this pattern in the atmospherev. once that system, we were just looking at passes, we're going to feel offshore winds from it. which means next sunday could be a concern in terms of maybe some dry fire weather in the mountains. but also the reverse flow meaning any smoke over here will start to get drawn back our way. enjoy the break. it doesn't mean we're done. we've still got several weeks, couple months really to go. you really can't think of fire season lasting until we get rain. for right now we'll take these shifts in the wind. those will help too. they're by no means permanent. all it takes is another shift in the other direction and we're back in it. there are your morning lows. upper 50s. you're waking up to bad air quality tomorrow. daytime highs tomorrow, unhealthy air quality tomorrow.
11:21 pm
tuesday gets better. 7-day forecast. the temperatures really are not the story here. i guess that's good. we don't have to worry about that. still warm at times. mid to upper 80s if you're inland. in the bay, it will be in the mid 70s. fingers crossed. things look good. none of it is a guarantee as we've seen with the smoke forecast. everything we've got to go on tells us things will get better tuesday. >> we'll take whatever good news we can get. coming up, the fight to help a herd of elk in the bay area. one group says they're being blocked from their water supply. and an adorable rescue caught on camera after several bear cubs get stuck in a dumpster. hey, everybody. i'm dennis o'donnell. coming up next on game day, the 49ers' comeback falls short. >> that's how football goes. >> it washe opposite for theo las vegas raiders. >> a historic win for all our players and entire organization.
