these are some things i want you to keep in mind. of course about two weeks ago, we had our own triple digits here in the bay area. we are not expecting that the next several days. the high pressure dominating the north here. if you are traveling the pacific northwest, that's where you will see some of that heat. in addition to that, i want to turn your attention to fire danger index. as we get closer to the 4th of july, you know we are in a serious drought and rain deficit and over night typically we see a really nice recovery when it comes to the humidity. temperatures are cooler, look at what happens during the daytime. this is when things start to really kick up when it comes to the concern. we see things dry out. the dew points and the humidities start to shift and once we see humidity drops less than 30%, we are dealing with extremely dry conditions and think of the dry brush out there. be safe and don't light your own
fireworks. we'll see a boost of temperatures heading into tuesday. probably the warmest day of the week. we go back down into the low 80s heading into next weekend. we have a pretty good week ahead. >> i am excited for monday, it is my day off. >> that's something to be excited about. >> we'll go water my plants. >> thanks a lot. still ahead, breaking post pandemic box office records. how much installment of the new "fast and furious saga" raked in this weekend.

it is not the indy 500 or the daytona 500 but it is serious raing nonetheless. >> maybe not that serious. the british lawn mower championships are back. they were shutdown for 18 month because of the pandemic. drivers battled it out on their favorite lawn mowers. they take it seriously. for safety sake, all cutting blades are removed. have a great night and a great week.
