illegal sales. i'm terry mcsweeney. they're hoping stepped-up fans can deter people from using fireworks. we have details on this new law. >> reporter: firefighters and city leaders are frustrated. they say despite the ban on fireworks, in the past few years, they've seen more than ever. but they are determined that this year will be different. take a look at the images captured by nbc bay area's cameras all across san jose. everywhere you look, you see fireworks lighting up the sky. this year, however, it's going to be a lot easier to punish offenders. first off, new laws have expanded the number of people, including city officials who can issue the fines. before a fireworks fine was a criminal citation issued only by a police officer, but firefighters say this year certain city officials can cite you, including fire officials, code enforcer, park rangers and
police. it's considered an administrative fine, similar to getting a parking ticket. you can get fines for the sale, use, possession of fireworks, and as for the fines, first-time offenders will be fine the $500, second time offenders $700. and if you get fined a third time, $1,000. fire officials say this is serious. >> i would ask people not concentrate on what the law says and concentrate on ha's safe and go to one of the professional shows. enjoy themselves, come away this weekend with happy memories and being safe. >> reporter: now firefighters are also encouraging the public to report illegal fireworks. you can call if anonymously or e-mail the city. for more information on how to do that, laug onto nbcbayarea.com and we'll have a link to that website for you. nbc bay area news. and a reminder.

the morning, widespread fog even for places like the tri valley that did not see fog, even across the south bay. it will push back to the coastline. but still, san francisco, look at that. fog doesn't move much between 11:00 and 5:00. we're goal to stay mostly cloudy. and by this time tomorrow, the fog will be pushing back if by 9:00. if you're heading to the city, it's going to be mostly cloudy for the fireworks spectacular. you know how it goes, the fireworks shoot up into the clouds and you get the glare. keep in mind, if you're headed that way, can't say i didn't warn you. 61 degrees by 8:00 tomorrow night. as the fireworks get going, mostly cloudy skies in the 50s. we have a wide array of things, sunny skies across the south bay, but the fog train is pushing into san francisco. that's going to be the general story each and every morning through the next several days in fact. 63 for your high in san francisco. mid-70s around the inner bay, and we will manage a few low 80s
around the inland valleys for tomorrow. if you're headed for the beaches, there's a strong risk for rip currents. keep that in mind through tomorrow all the way through tomorrow evening. at that rip current risk does stay in place. we've got marine air in place, that's going to pump in overnight. because of this cooler weather, we've got high pressure starting to push to our south. that's going to allow our jet stream to sag a little further south over the next couple days. so by midweek, we're going to be talking about temperatures below average for once, not above average. we'll get out of the 90ing and back into the 70s and 80s for most of us. you take a peek across the map. wherever you're headed, nothing oppressive. no triple digits, no 90s, 88 for livermore, mid-70s around the inner bay, oakland at 66. 63 for san francisco and up in wine country, look at that. 70. so very comfortable weather all
in all across most of the bay area. really not only for tomorrow but the week ahead. look at this, the tri valleys, close to 90 tomorrow. but by tuesday, wednesday, and thursday we really start to feel comfortable. and keep that in mind, we'll have morning fog each and every day because of the cooler temperatures. san jose same deal. close to 80 on wednesday. the cooling trend will affect all of us over the fex coupnext days. if you're looking for the best place to watch fireworks, 71 degrees, downtown san jose, doesn't get any better than that. >> are you working for the came ber of commerce? pretty good sell you've got there. >> i've seen them before. it's a good show. coming up, she is going to the olympics. but it was a long road back to the top. the bay area's dana baumer.
