12:17 pm
ago of spread of spread. i should say two additional type three engines were requested. initially as you can see in this photo here. a number of homes are scattered in those hills and those hills obviously. very dry and brown as we saw in that live picture of mount diablo just about 10 minutes ago and to bring in our meteorologist kyla grogan. obviously it's been very windy out there over the last couple of days there. what how we looking right now in the south, based specifically? yes well, you know, we're breezy, and that is probably the one thing that they're going to have to deal with mike things on their side are the fact that our temperatures are not very warm today and a relative humidity levels are actually looking pretty good, too down in the south. i'm going to show you that in just a minute, but we are breezy out there and it is because the low pressure center him that is still influencing our weather. right? you've got that onshore flow going, so take a live. look here at sfo. you can even see towards the front of your screen. you can see kind of the trees there that are wrestling around and also a few clouds that are kind of hanging out. we don't have a lot of cloud cover, but we do have it along the coast. so that's where we're seeing it kind of hang on today and that
12:18 pm
again as i mentioned courtesy of the low pressure system that's been bringing us this cooler moisture. air mass now that will be helpful for firefighters today that we have that cooler, moister air masks. this part not so much you can see we do still have wind out there. so 20 mph napa were gusting over that in nevada and conquered and as we take it down to the south bay, you can see certainly some wind down there as well. hayward right now. 23 mph san jose 18, but this is kind of the better side of it. all right. i just pulled up morgan hill. you can see there are 43% relative humidity. that means the air is relatively saturated, right? we don't have single digit dryness like we see when we get offshore wind. this is onshore wind, so that is certainly going to help out and temperatures right? 65 degrees right now in san jose 56 in san francisco. i mean, we had a pretty cool day yesterday, well below average, and we're going to see that again today, so we're in the sixties around the bay and down in the south bay as well. in fact, if you look across the state, this low pressure system influencing most of california, with the exception of pumps rings, they're just sitting in the nineties, but santa barbara at
12:19 pm
72 right now, ella sitting at 67, so you know we do have a pretty cool pattern happening right now. so that's why today we will once again. and see temperatures similar to yesterday. where you know we've struggled to get up to 70 degrees. it looks like today the only two spots that will make it two or three. uh fairfield, antioch and morgan hill. but even that well below average 59 in san francisco about 65 in fremont, santa rosa, looking out for 69. so again, this is all courtesy of this low pressure system that's been hanging out. it will start to track over to the east as we move through the next 24 hours, but today it will keep us mild and breezy. we're gonna get a lot of sunshine out there to again with the exception of the coast, which is kind of hanging onto the clouds, then as we move towards the weekend, we have another system rolling our way and this one is going to bring some showers to the far reaches of northern california, but unfortunately really want bringing and bring anything to us and to show you a future cast, and i just want to point out first that some unsettled weather up in places like lake county, you know, further north towards reading, and you can
12:20 pm
see a little pop on the radar there even in like tahoe that they could get. a little stormy action today. not much, but then there's our thursday. i'm going to take you into friday, and there's the system that's rolling in. and as you can see, it just kind of falls apart. so unfortunately, what that means for us is maybe the north bay gets a sprinkle or two, but probably not much of anything to speak of. certainly nothing that would help us in our drought situation. but we are going to stay cool. we will start to warm up as that low pressure system moves away and we head towards the weekend again. we'll have some clouds with us, and we'll start to get back into the eighties inland as we head into saturday and sunday mike pence. alright kylie. thank you still to come this new time, a town hall meeting hosted by congressman jared huffman gets heated in sandra fell more in the conflict between the audience and some p
