11:17 pm
afternoon when we feel the strongest of this. why is this an offshore wind event tomorrow? and why do we have fire weather concerns? every other system so far for the past few weeks has been good giving us light rain and onshore wind. these will be offshore wind, we have a big block in the atmosphere. any storms that come into california have to go around. this one goes up and over, through the pacific northwest and then slides down to our east on the inside of the state. that's why we call these inside sliders. considering there is so much focus on baseball right now. it's a very important term. look what it does, as it moves by to the east it turns on those northerly offshore winds, and then they start squeezing over the mountains of the north bay and east bay. this is classic fire weather.
11:18 pm
it's already started in the north bay but overnight it picks up and by tomorrow, late after morning or afternoon, this is when we are noticing the wind for the valley and east bay and pretty much bay area wide. when i say it will be windy in your area this is what it will look like. gusting at 35 miles per hour which can send the brief line. you could get some localized power outages. if you get a broken tree branch on a power line you could lose power. that's something to keep in mind beyond the actual fire weather threat in the mountains. the other thing is, it's going to be noticeably cooler tomorrow because of this. morning lows in the mid 50s, watch the daytime highs, about 10 degrees cooler than today. you could not have gotten a better weather day than what we had today with everything going on. tomorrow we get back in the kind of unsettled fall with the wind noticeably cooler. once the wind passes for tuesday we are staying cool for
11:19 pm
a few days. by next weekend we wore right back up again. next weekend will probably about as nice as today, sunny and low 80s. we take a look at the east bay where we get back to the 80s. in the same thing with the valleys of the north bay. batten down the hatches for tomorrow morning and afternoon. now to one of the biggest victims of climate change. iceland is melting fast. scientists say the amount of ice lost in iceland fueled by global warming totals more than 1.2 trillion tons per year. there are roughly 400 glaciers on iceland, experts say a majority of them are melting at rates never seen before. glacier melts are the main cause of rising sea level that threatened to flood coastal communities around the world. scientists say all that water could be changing the oceans circulation which could fuel more extreme weather like hurricanes and heat waves.
11:20 pm
one expert says we can keep the planet from overheating. >> that means we have to act now. i want people to think about the future with ice. >> jackson says if nothing is done to reduce global warming there's a possibility iceland could lose nearly all of its ice in the next century. coming up, how rock 'n roll paid the way for one bay area photographer to be remembered long after his death. and why the reality of flying cars could be... here now. and tomorrow, half the counterfeit pill was all it took. her father found her dead in her bed. he's speaking out to warn other parents. >> i told him this is real. don't take the pill, it can kill you. >> a father's plea tomorrow night on the
