6:50 pm
to be finding temperatures on sunday and monday that will be in the upper seventies low eighties, so it's classic bay area early spring, early summer or late spring early summer. the forecast for tomorrow you'll still see heat inland. as you look at the model, you can see that you've got the flog it burns back temperatures inland still into the low one hundreds in the real warm spots and maybe some low nineties. in the far inland spots. that's tomorrow, especially around santa rose. i think you know the heat up in santa rosa, they'll go almost 90 degrees fairfield, 90 and 90 degrees um, so what's the upshot here is it's not a big change, but with the upshot is. i see this all week, but this whole summer is going to be about waiting for the next rain to get out from underneath the fire danger this five day forecast you never after underneath the fire danger. with this five day forecast makes it easier to get through the week and others were not looking at really, really dry conditions that will spawn fires. i'll tell you when you get fired, you get fires when you have two or three days in a row of heat, where the overnight temperatures don't
6:51 pm
recover the overnight low temperatures are in the seventies in the sixties, and that has proven that you have more fires in subsequent days. so when we only have one heat day, and then we got these mild days, i feel okay. doesn't mean there won't be fires. it just means the chances of a big fire the chances of the big win. are not there. so um, there you go. there's the five day forecast. i will see you back here tonight at 10 and 11. there's definitely a welcome change in that forecast. bill. thank you. well, coming up. we hear from bob melvin on how he celebrated after becoming the winningest manager in oakland is
