problem fire danger really going to be an issue fire danger running high all week long i think. >>probably going to see these red flag warnings that are now up through friday. they want to see them extended into the weekend and into next week as well so gusty winds going to be all around you can see periods of gusts, especially over the mountain tops of the north bay of first and then spreading around the rest the bay area and intensifying as we head in toward the weekend too and we've some very low humidity is extremely low. i think as we head toward lot of part of the weekend in fact look at these numbers, it's a little bit dry out there now already and of course the long hot season of summer and fall and now we write the peak of the fire season as we head the next 24 to 48 hours we're looking at the level dropping down into the single digits in the north bay and if you can believe it we'll see a cold front come in as we head in toward the weekend things start to ramp back up and we're talking 7090% relative humidity in some parts the bay area then that front goes by and watch what happens. this is amazing all the humidity
dropping down across the bay area 3 to 4 to 5% that is it that is does are dry outside and of course you throw in the winds some very dangerous fire going to exist as we headed toward a lot of part of weekend right now high pressure building in overhead you've got a couple easy systems a roll over the top of the ridge we've got another one right now that has moved in the pacific northwest that is going to drop down the backside of that system as it drops all of a sudden we start to talk about those winds. the difference between the high and low pressure really get those winds going and so we're going to see the kind several bursts of these winds developing as we head of the coming days as those winds are going to pummel some of the mountain tops around the bay area some 40 and some 50 mile an hour gusts, beautiful shot outside right now looking good nice and clear over san francisco not much in the way of wind right now, here's a look the east bay hills of capturing the moon outside out there as well and looking mostly clear air quality moderate amounts of pollutants now building up you can see it
in the yellow there from santa rosa in the bottle san francisco all the way down the mountain view and even san jose right now so certainly seeing beginning to build up of those winds going to mix that out quite a bit. back temperatures around the bay area today it was a nice day out there with 75 degrees in san francisco that was above the average 85 in oakland 87 degrees in san jose 90 in livermore 91 in concord in 89 degrees in santa rosa, certainly these numbers running above the average. but that's all about to change. look what's happening up in the pacific northwest you can see the rain you can ease even see the snow across the northern rockies that air mass is going to dry out and drop right into the bay area so it's bringing all that cold air in our direction that's going to send the temperatures way down maybe 20 degrees cooler over the weekend. and the winds are going to be kicking up and it's going to be very very dry. numbers around the bay area now you've got 71 degrees still pleasanton livermore 73 in concord you're still looking 59 degrees in the bottle 60 degrees in the napa valley. so certainly some pleasant
numbers out there but things beginning to change over the next couple days. we're going to see those temperatures coming down across the board much cooler temperatures over the weekend and much higher fire danger to i'm afraid. all right lawrence well if you have a pet listen up what you do if you or your furry friend gets covid. >>the steps you can take to see what happens after the break.
>>i think of everything right can the coronavirus spread to pets that is a question that the cdc is still trying to figure out reporter sarah israel caught up with a 16 year-old cat in pennsylvania. who apparently contracted the virus. >>animal health and human health or intricately connected so connected that a 16 year-old cat living in cumberland county tested positive for covid-19 earlier this month after its family took it to the vet it was in respiratory distress and they had to euthanize that so unfortunately didn't have that we don't have final definite cause of death but before the news brings you paul's there's no evidence to suggest that cats can spread to humans in every cat case there was one common factor in all of the other handful of cases across the country it was an animal that had prolonged contact with people who had the virus which means humans need to
take care of their kittens know kittens you want to treat your animal with care to you if you know you're sick if you tested positive or you have symptoms. now take care around your pets, the warning signs are very similar to humans call for us pretoria issues and fatigue don't spend a long time and prolonged contact with them wear masks, maybe have someone else take care of them for a while and feed them because our firmly needs the same care as or human companions treat your cat like you would. another member of your household if you're sick. you don't want to spread what you have to your cat. >>and. >>good advice though is sarah israel reporting for us tonight in tears, not of afraid upon upon or to 2 or and that wraps up kron 4 news at 9 thanks for being grant and i will be back at the top of the hour nearly 4 dozen san francisco, businesses vandalized and broken into during a weekend crime spree. >>coming up the surveillance video police hope will help
