images. >> they're very close. we want to check in with mark tamayo. the temperatures are easily back up into the 90s this afternoon. and i will say probably the biggest challenge for the fire crews in this fire exceptional is just the terrain in trying to get access to the area that will be virtually an aerial fire fight as you heard that it will be extremely dangerous with the drones out there, but also on the ground for the airplanes, up towards upwards of an hour. that is always a chance to stall the fire fighting strategies, that it is a big concern. the temperatures in the 90s as they would try to battle from up above. the good news, look at those cooler temperatures for the weekend forecast. and it is always up there, but it will not be extreme through the weekend. cool numbers out towards pacifica, only 70 degrees in san francisco and still a few 90s to report out here.
