12:17 pm
we do have some lovely temperatures out there right now, and we are expecting an absolutely beautiful day out there, so temperature is gonna be sixties out of the coast seventy's around the bay and eighties inland, but low eighties so kind of cool to warm temperatures throughout the day. today should just be sunny and nice and something for everybody to get out and enjoy. if you have a chance, maybe to take your lunch outside or take a little walk. i think it's a good day to do that, because a it's beautiful and be it's not going to last. so today, 60 six in san francisco, about 71 in oakland, will get up to about 78 in santa rosa and also down in san jose. you see a few eighties on the map. they are inland, but you know, nice. low eighties, right conquered and livermore just at 80 degrees 82 in fairfield, 84 in antioch. it should be really nice. and if by the way you happen to be heading out to a baseball game tonight as the oakland a's take on the angels, it should be a really nice time for baseball as well. we're looking out for about 66 degrees. mostly sunny skies a little bit of wind out there so out of the west, but again, it should. be a lovely day to be outside. now comes

12:19 pm
be cooler, but because of the onshore flow, but still 74 in san francisco is a pretty warm day. fremont looking to get up into the nineties in san jose. as well. so it is basically wednesday thursday friday with thursday being the day that the heat peaks that we are going to be on the lookout for this, and of course, when we get warm temperatures like this with all of the dry fuels out there, it does increase our fire danger. so just to give you an idea today conquered 80 degrees 14 on thursday. livermore 80 today 13 on thursday. san jose, you'll go from upper seventies to low nineties and as i mentioned santa rosa beautiful day today, upper seventies becomes 100 degrees on on thursday. so let's take a look and put it all together in our extended forecast, and you can see the warming begins a little bit as we get into tomorrow but still inland only getting into the upper eighties. we'll get to the upper nineties on wednesday rocket up to triple digit heat on thursday. pull back a touch on friday, but still an exceptionally warm day. and then as we get towards the weekend, we'll start to feel a little more normal, albeit

hot anyways, for out here it usually gets like 100 and 10. and then when you add the wind to it, it's just it's a problem and there's no roads to really get out. so when you need to get out if you wait till the last second and panic, then you're stuck in a traffic jam. traffic jams, which in turn can create problems for emergency vehicles, and inspector ferguson says there'll be more resources standing by this summer, waiting to respond well, bringing on extra strike teams will place those in known fire corridor areas, so typically will place a strike team, which is five engines led by battalion chief in the santa clarita valley. or in malibu, for example, and what that does, it gives us an opportunity to put more boots on the ground that much faster at last, coz reporting there now the los angeles region has had below average rainfall for six of the last 10 years, according to the almanac, certainly dry here in the bay area as well. and as we think about checking whether again with ktvu media all just kyla grogan getting word about it. a fire burning right now in
12:45 pm
south san jose. it's not that hot yet, but still, it's a dangerous situation. right. i mean, always a dangerous situation, mostly because we've had such a dry rain season that you know we have incredible dry fuels out there. they can spark fires very quickly. if something starts it, so that is a problem. i will tell you right now in san jose, thankfully, uh, you know, it's about 72. degrees got about 60% relative humidity and the wind is out of the north northwest about 12 mph. so that's the one sticking point is the wind but other than that, it is pretty decent firefighting weather right now, so hopefully they'll be able to get some containment on that we do have beautiful day on tap today, would you have heat in our future, but not today? take a live look at the oakland estuary. just beautiful blue skies as far as the eye can see a few high clouds out there, but you know it's going to be a really nice day today, and temperatures are going to be just mild and lovely. so we do have some clouds at at the coast and certainly a little bit cooler out there today. but for the most part, you know it's going to be a really nice day across the bay. we're expecting about 64 degrees out of the coast.
12:46 pm
seventies around the bay and just low eighties inland. in fact, some spots up in the north bay will only get into the upper seventies east. they'll get a little bit warmer today. you should make it into some of those low eighties but sunny and nice and temperatures very seasonal. so 66 today expected in san francisco, oakland about 71. you can see those eighties on the map will be conquered. livermore antioch, fairfield, morgan hill. some of the usual suspects right when we warm up. but you know north bay. not bad. sandra fell. 76 napa 78 redwood city down around a 78 as well as i mentioned pacifica about 64. so that's where the sixties are today. certainly out of the coast. we've got a little onshore flow in those clouds hanging out heading to see the baseball game today. well about 6 40 pm when they threw out the first pitch, it should be nice 66 degrees. mostly sunny, a little bit of wind as i mentioned out there about 15 mph, but it should be pretty nice. then comes the big headline, which is that we are about to see an inland warm up that pretty extreme this week as we hit some hundreds on wednesday and thursday, um,
12:47 pm
doesn't start really. until wednesday. we will warm up a little bit tomorrow. but nothing extreme. now the reason this is happening as high pressure that's been building over the desert southwest is moving on up into california. that low pressure system. that kind of kept us cool. the last few days has moved on that was keeping this high pressure. from bumping into california, and now that is happening. so what does that mean by wednesday, santa rosa will be about 94 degrees thursday. 100 friday 96 checkout conquered. you can see triple digit heat by wednesday already, then push even higher on thursday at about 14 before relenting to 98 on friday, u c san francisco looking out for seventies. through this heat snap, or we could see some nineties in places like three month and san jose. so it's really gonna be a wednesday thursday friday timeline with the heat peaking on thursday, and then it will pull back just a tiny bit on friday. you know not enough to call it cools down, frankly, until we get towards the weekend, of course, exacerbate any fire danger of hh
12:48 pm
temperatures and dry fuels out there. thankfully not an offshore flow with our wind, which would make it even worse. but, you know, take look at this 80 and conquered and living where becomes 14 and 13 by thursday, 78 in san jose and santa rosa becomes nineties and even triple digit heat, so you know it's something just to be prepared for as we go through this week, but again today is gorgeous. so if you want to get out and maybe get anything done that you need to get done outside. it's a great day to do it tomorrow. the warming begins, but it won't be extreme. it will go above average. by wednesday. that's what our inland communities are really going to be feeling it and then thursday is the worst of it. friday we start to pull back a touch, and as you can see, as we head towards the weekend, we do ramp down, but we don't get any real significant relief until we get into sunday. that's when i would say, you know, you can breathe a sigh of relief and you mig to be a littt of a rough ride. as we go througck to you. it will be a lg week. kyla grogan. thank you. water parks are reopening to large crowds, and now there are still some covid related restrictions. but come tomorrow
