5:11 pm
5:12 pm
welcome back. from nevada to virginia, catastrophic floods have decimated neighborhoods across the country. in kentucky the death toll has risen to 25 as the national guard continues to provide relief to residents throughout the eastern part of the state. the kentucky governor thinks things are going to get worse as rescue crews continue to sift through rubble.
5:13 pm
the national guard has rescued hundreds of people in tennessee, west virginia and kentucky. with cellphone service out in a number of counties, crews are working double time to get people to safety. >> a lot of places that don't have service yet, the challenge has been getting to them to set up some of those mobile service towers. providers as well as emergency management have mobile towers that we can get up. but again, it is about safely getting there. >> power outages have also been a hindrance on rescues, according to more than 18,000 homes and businesses remain in the dark. in apache junction, arizona, cleanup crews are putting the pieces back together after seeing two inches of rain lastly night. a mud river flowed through as residents saw their neighborhoods transform in a number of hours. >> ice chests, beaters, you name
5:14 pm
it. it went through my shed, almost went through my swimming pool. >> it was a nightmare, we had water three foot over the cement barriers that we had up yesterday, just looks like a waterfall coming clear over the top of them. mud, tires, tree stumps. >> according to longtime residents, they have never seen flooding this bad or happen this quickly. but that's what they mean by flash flooding. here in california there is a new fast-moving wildfire in siskiyou county, called the mckinney fire in the klamath national forest. fire officials say it's being fueled by late evening thunderstorms. >> from the start of the incident all the way up until now, still pretty breezy this
5:15 pm
time of the morning. >> closer to home, the oak fire near yosemite has burned 20,000 acres. cal fire says it's 52% contained. the good news is that at least today some evacuations were listened. you see the fog and the clouds and you think that's the most stable air on earth. on the other hand, behind you i see thunderstorms. >> yeah, there really is that juxtaposition of what's going on. i want to start with the thunderstorms, because even though the chance is small, we have a small chance tomorrow. so let's get into that. here is the wide view. first of all, the fire that brian was just talking about, the one that went from nothing to 30,000 acres in a day, that one burning way up here on the far northern edge of the state. you can see the complex of lightning up there responsible for that. but let's draw your attention over here to the central sierra. even though it's not as impressive at this point, i'm going to switch and put this into the futurecast. watch what happens through the next 24 hours. thunderstorms are going to redevelop again tomorrow.
5:16 pm
we might see a few straggler showers get pulled our way tonight from that but that's very spotty and not all that impressive. tomorrow it gets a little more impressive. here is sunday in the afternoon, with a better complex of thunderstorms. and then you're going to see a little more of that energy redevelop and start to get pulled back towards the bay area. here is the takeaway on something like that. this is a small chance. 10 to 20% chance we could see an isolated thunderstorm. not typical for us in the summer, optimism. anyone who lives here knows that. but it cap hn happen, think of lightning siege from august 2020. that was the same setup, those big complexes of thunderstorms that develop every summer in the desert southwest. sometimes they get pulled far enough west that we get in on the act here. considering how dry the landscape is we'll watch this closely because any lightning would be a concern. thankfully we've got a lot of humidity. temperatures have been well
5:17 pm
below average. all of those things help. there's a lot that goes into watching the significant concern there and we'll keep you updated on all of it over the next two days. there's the smoke plume from that mckinney fire. if you're worried about that, that's a huge fire, a lot of smoke, and the atmosphere is taking the majority of it away from us. so that's not going to be a factor. instead, this is what's driving our life right now. that's the golden gate bridge, obviously, you can't see the towers. it doesn't look like that everywhere, obviously. this is the view from the top of mount diablo. you can see the low stratus, the clouds filling in the bay. san jose, that's you, and it's sunshine here. overnight, low clouds fill back in for everybody. we wake up to gray skies tomorrow, even some light mist as those clouds go back in. mid-70s, 68 in the city, 75 in livermore. just to watch how the clouds rebuild tonight, tomorrow morning it's gray out.
5:18 pm
lightness near the coast and along the bay shoreline. we'll repeat this pattern. morning lows tomorrow where they were today, low 60s inland. upper 50s near the bay. let's pull in a few more locations. ukiah is going to 94, 100 around clear lake. the rest of the day, temperatures are behaved, 86 in livermore, 80 in san rafael. in the seven-day forecast, we just keep repeating that. we're not going to change this a whole lot. wasn't keep doing our late july, early august thing with the low clouds in the morning, overnight hours, maybe some light mist again. i didn't put rain on here for the chance of isolated thunderstorms. it would be so few and far between, the bigger concern will be do we get any lightning. that's what we'll be watching, that will be the primary focus for the first alert forecast for the next day and a half, two days. vern, over to you. 49s, the clock is ticking. we are waiting. where has klay thompson gone this time?
