of calistoga, a much more positive development. three hours ago the evacuation order that it turned it into a ghost town was downgraded to a warning. now that means people could go home at their own risk, but in other parts of the fire zone hundreds would not have homes to go back to. cal-fire says a damaged team has covered about 50% of the burn areas so far, and they confirmed 172 homes in napa county and 120 in sonoma county are gone along with the total of 272 commercial buildings. however, the fire has grown by just 1,500 acres in the past 24 hours. and in the past 24 hours fire crews have nearly doubled containment to 17%. >> the clearing skies help firefighters ramp up their aerial attack on the flames, but it may be a case of good news, bad news. firefighters tell us the thick layer of smoke actually helped slow the fire during the past week by shaving the area, so it didn't get quite as warm and
6:01 pm
didn't get quite as dry. so now we've got blue skies, the more active again. >> the visibilities increase, so that means the smoke layer isn't laying down on the fire. any time we get a little bit more visibility, that'll allow more air flow. the fire does start to burn a little more actively. it's nice to see blue skies psychologically, but i think it does invite more fire. >> and so do you sort of dread seeing the better area right now? >> well, i'm conflicted. >> so in the can't win department, let's go to darren to see what's up next. >> well, i will take the good air quality. >> yeah, me too. >> it is registering green, a.k.a. good, bay area wide right now. >> that's right. >> there is something else that's starting to come into the picture. look at the view from the top of the salesforce camera. you can see mt. diablo again. we haven't been able to do that for a while. i'm going to take the camera and switch our view now. instead of looking east, we're going to take the camera on top of the salesforce camera and

look west. that is the marine layer totally obscuring the bridge. if you get underneath it, it looks like fog is here right now. that's like may gray. no sky july. it's not typical for this time of the year, but it is a strong surge in the marine layer. however, we are not done with smoke from the fires. you can still see them up on the screen there. thankfully all the smoke is blowing the other way. i just want to draw your attention now to next weekend. this is next saturday and sunday and the accumulated rainfall potential for northern california. and i'm going to talk to you a lot more to you about that possibility. this is not an exact forecast yet, but i will say we are on rain watch and it is good news to be there for now. i'll see you in the forecast in a few minutes. >> right, can't wait. cal-fire hosting a virtual community meeting on facebook right now. they'll be answering questions directly from evacuees and others in the fire zone. >> new at 6:00 the oakland city

6:04 pm
morning he found these cars abandoned in the middle of the street. the high street home depot in his district once again is threatening to leave oakland. the city removed a large illegal encampment in front of it last year, but the homeless are once again moving back. >> and if home depot was to leave tomorrow, you're talking about 350 entry-level jobs of people that live in this neighborhood. >> the latest city proposal would ban encampments like schools, homes, and businesses. councilman dan cobb said they were not going to capitalize the homeless, but there needs to be a balance. >> talking to residents, meeting with them, telling them they cannot be somewhere and letting them know where they can go and then helping them move, literally, physically, helping them move. >> reporter: maria fuentes has been homeless for five years. >> we're not trying to be a blight or a bother to anybody. >> reporter: she said the ban would make it really tough to find a place to sleep, but she
6:05 pm
agrees there shouldn't be tents near schools or playgrounds. >> not that we're bad people, but we don't want them, you know, looking at us like this is what the future holds. >> it is easy to say where they should not be. it's not easy to say where they should be because we don't want, no one wants the encampments period, but we know we have them. >> reporter: while many neighbors support the proposal, they say they want the city to house the homeless instead of pushing them away. questioning the effectiveness of the policy. >> we have plenty of policies, plenty of laws. we just don't enforce them. >> reporter: the city council will discuss and likely vote on the proposal on october 20. in oakland kpix 5. oakland i'm da lin, kpix 5. dozens of vehicles camped in novato. vehicle campers including to the brand says the sheriff's office is proposing an overnight parking ban on benford road. as many as 50rvs and camper

6:16 pm
get outside today and breathe it all in. there's good reason to believe much of today will be okay. but having said that, i have to show you the official forecast put out by the bay area air quality management district. while we do have a lot of green here in the north bay, this makes perfect sense as long as the fire is going. forecast is unhealthy for sensitive groups, so stay on top of the air quality for you before you go out for the long marathon run. and there's the east bay as well just because you're inland and you always kind of get stuck by some of the worst air quality. it's good now and a reason to believe they will be pretty good. but here is the accumulated rainfall for friday through sunday. and that looks pretty promising. this is one forecast model. i know there's some numbers on here. i don't want us to get too tied up on how much rain we might get out of this. too soon for that. but rather what we should do is to hook at that and say oh, it's going to rain. but according to this one forecast model, we use two to really get consensus. here is the first one that i'm going to now bring in the
6:17 pm
second one because you want to see agreembe and then the good news is there is still pretty good agreement between these two major forecast models that we're going to see rain. for northern california and next friday, saturday, sunday. and now it is a bit out of the ordinary for us to get meaningful rain for next weekend's date. in other words a lot of credit to the national weather service for digging into the statistics on this. i apologize for putting a graph on your screen. but what they did they went back to 1858 through 2018. and they looked for any time that it rained in that three- day period. october 9, 10, 11. how much rain did we get when it actually rained? each one of these lines will show you rain. i know it looks like a lot of rat itrely t when you go back to 1858. see the blue line here? that will show you an inch of rain for each of those times. only 10% of these will get to that mark. so the odds are against us here. but the forecast models are still on our side.
6:18 pm
and the leftovers from hurricane marie is still on our side. that thing will fall apart and some of that will get drawn into this system and our first fall season of the system. just as they are falling apart to help infuse a little more moisture for this system to work with as it comes in. right now the focus looks like it will be on late friday into saturday. but we will enter the day five windows tomorrow. so tune in paul deanno will be tracking that. today we made it to 94. inland, there is that strong surge. we'll get to your morning lows. mid-50s tomorrow morning. it's going to be foggy near the coast and the bay tomorrow. so if you've got a monday morning commute, plan on fog if you're going to be on the golden gate bridge or even the bay bridge. day time highs tomorrow cooler today. only low 90s for wednesday, thursday. but before we get to the chance of rain, we will get a really nice cool down. day time highs in the 70s.
6:19 pm
mid to upper 70s if you're in. e turday a sunday. we'll see how that plays out. dennis, over to you. >> hey, aaron, who is pitching for the a's in their playoff opener against houston? we've got that. how are cardinals fans stopping vegas' hold of pulling off an upset of safely shop floor and decor your way! comfortably explore our incredible selection. with safe in-store guidance, or order online, and pick up your products curbside! come discover the perfect floor at the perfect price however is perfect for you. explore floor & decor in-store or online. they do one of the most deven in normal times.s, our frontline health care workers. and when these heroes lack the resources they need, that risky job gets ten times harder. prop fifteen makes corporations pay their fair share. to invest in our communities, in our clinics, in the essential workers who treat everyone- rich, poor, and in-between.

6:34 pm
you can see despite some close calls. firefighters were able to save all of the homes there. and if you think it's been especially harsh fire season, you're right. darren is here to explain the science of just why that is, darren? >> if you look at the map behind me here, every one of these red outlines, they will show you the perimeter of the fire that burned just this year. and when you add them all up, you come to just about four million acres. from northern california down through central and southern california. four million acres, shatters the record for the amount of acres that we have burned in this state in one season. to try to gain some context for why 2020 has been so bad, we are not going to write this off oh we're just 2020ing. there were flashing warning signs leading up to this that it will be in our benefit to start recognizing. one of them was february. another one was august. first let's talk about february. if you look at the average rainfall across the country in
6:35 pm
february, california in these deep shades of blue actually typically get some of the heaviest amounts of rain in the whole country specifically the mountains in northern california. whether it is the coast range or the sierra. some of the blue spots here will get anywhere from three to four feet, two to three feet of rain in february. that's average. now let me show you what february 2020 was. zero. we've got nothing. that big area of red on there will show you we broke a record in february. we have four months in the year to get our rain, december, january, february, march. that's when we really need to add it up. if you entirely lose one of your big months, you've got to make it up in january and march, that did not help. tey were below average as well. but february really outdid themselves everywhere in brown on this map for february shows you where we set the record for the driest it has ever been since 1895. we have never gone an entire february with no rain. that was a big story here, but it was back in february, who
6:36 pm
remembers that? we didn't even have the pandemic then. and so it is about, but it's a big part of why we are where we are right now. the other issue, august, also set a record. if we take a look at august temperatures, once again, we will set a record on the other end of the extreme. and we had the hottest august ever recorded in the state of california just this year. didn't make a whole lot of headlines, but hard to keep track of all the extremes. this is what set us off. and it is a combination of the two because we already had a very dry landscape and then we will increase the temperature levels to levels we have never seen before. but one of the tenants of global warming is the higher the temperature in the atmosphere and the more water vapor the atmosphere could hold. if we don't get a lot of rain here, the atmosphere is going to absorb the water vapor from anywhere. and the only place that they needed to do that was from our forests. trees, branches, twigs, grasses. all that stuff will start to get evaporated and pulled into
6:37 pm
the atmosphere because it is so dry. when it comes to the fire science, one of the leading tools of the fire weather science, they will look at it something called the vapor pressure deficit. don't worry about the term. but they will tell us about those two items, very warm air and very dry air and the atmospheres ability to pull moisture out of the landscape. this is the last 60 days. starting back, the start of august really. and everywhere in dark brown on here will show you that we have the most intense readings for that deficit that we have ever recorded going all the way back to the late 70s. so these are signs that we should learn to recognize. it wasn't 2020's fault, this didn't just happen. it's a pattern. and these are some of the tools to look at and we should kind of get familiar with these terms. if you look at that forecast, we have every reason to believe this pattern is going to continue until we see significant changes in the amount of carbon we are putting into the air and how we manage our forests. see what the rest of our forecast coming up in just a
6:38 pm
bit, guys, back to you. >> thank you. the covid-19 pandemic has hit the movie industry hard. we have now learned it could be curtains for one nationwide theater chain at least for now. and a battle of wheels on capitol hill. the one thing nancy pelosi says they will take to break the stimulus they do one of the most difficult jobs there is,
6:39 pm
even in normal times. our frontline health care workers. and when these heroes lack the resources they need, that risky job gets ten times harder. prop fifteen makes corporations pay their fair share. to invest in our communities, in our clinics, in the essential workers who treat everyone- rich, poor, and in-between. whether it's this pandemic or the next health crisis, vote yes on prop fifteen. for all of us. it's rising. the pain is coming.
6:40 pm
tonight only three u.s. states are reporting a decline in new covid-19 cases compared to last week. at least 21 other states are seeing a spike. california held steady. researchers are now predicting as many as 2,900 deaths a day
6:41 pm
