1:41 am

1:43 am
same but the wind speed will not. relative humidity was way down today. livermore 13%. anything below 20 is critical when it comes to fire danger. that's why the red flag warning is in effect until tomorrow morning. less wind but still very, very dry all the way through the weekend. wait till you see the change in the 7-day forecast. find out which day isn't going to hit 70 anywhere. all right paul thank you. a judge has ordered pge to shut off a major gas pipeline in san carlos. city leaders got an e-mail from an engineer questioning the safety of the line. san carlos wants to avoid an explosion similar to this one in san bruno that killed 8 people. a representative from pg&e insists it's safe. according to bart's unions the two sides are only $30 million apart tonight. yesterday the gap was almost 90 million.
