8:02 am
cooler weather into the upcoming weekend that brings full-fledged fall feelings back to the region. now that's a look at your forecast of course got to get a look at traffic this morning, robin winston is standing by its sunny out there for most areas at least and that makes for at least a decent commute right. it does indeed better than driving in the dark checking in on the traffic taking a look at the peak into san lots of sunshine here at the bay bridge toll plaza for the trip in but the commute is already thinning out so we're starting to see traffic improve here on a t. >>12 minutes that's a great trip from the bottom of the maze over to the fremont street exit we're checking in on some drive times for you and they look really good. we've had some minor trouble spots out there but nothing no major hot spots right now so we're checking on highway 4 that still looking good 22 minutes to make your way through contra costa county, no problems for 6.80 no problems for the nimitz freeway and one oh one still clocking in at 32 minutes from san jose heading into menlo
8:03 am
park so daryn james is picking up in some areas. those spots don't look so good we'll check more traffic coming up in a bit back to you, thanks robin, let's get back to the red flag warning that's in effect for big part of the bay area right now. yeah, it's going to be dry. it's going to be hot going to be windy. those are the ingredients that spell potential disaster we have kron 4 sarah stinson live in san mateo county with more on how they're preparing. >>they're good morning sara. >>good morning, the red flag warning even extended to san mateo county but also extended until friday member. it was supposed to be until wednesday and then extended it last night 10 o'clock and they're continuing until at least tomorrow but those winds are exposed to continue supposed to continue throughout the weekend. so i didn't expect that to go away anytime soon. take a look at this map you can see all of that red those are the areas in the bay area that are affected by the red flag warning that's a lot of the bay area, not only the san mateo county coast. but also
8:04 am
the north bay mountains east bay hills and interior valleys. >>as well as the santa cruz mountains we have more wins in the forecast up on the mountains and the bridges of 10 to 25 miles per hour with gusts up to 40 miles per hour now is could see gusts up to 35 miles an hour and the coast could also see some gusts up to 40 miles per hour that combined with extremely dry conditions historically dry conditions causes potential for a fire to spark not only easier but also cause it to spread more rapidly now there's also a fire weather watch in effect until tomorrow both of those combined just really causes for concern and it means that we all need to prepare if you live in one of those areas that is known to have fires prone to have fires who want to have go bag ready and also we all need to do everything we can to prevent a fire from sparking that will continue to fall as red flag warning as i said john troubles been tracking the
8:05 am
wind and it looks like it's going to continue throughout the weekend reporting live in san mateo county sarah stinson back to you ok, but you still have the scarf on so little chilly. >>not warm. >>yet still 56 degrees but as john was saying that's going to burn off you know the bay area's growing up they had to wear a sweatshirt or jacket and then by reese says. >>we're wearing t-shirts i know you guys are jackets all the time fun 5 behind me all right, thanks a lot. >>james and don't forget to the other part of the story is the fact that we could have people losing power today because of that red flag warning and pg and e's power shut off program. here's video of them preparing their equipment kron four's will tran live in napa for us this morning because well that's one of the areas that could be hardest hit by these potential power shut-offs. >>3200 customers could be hit very hard when their power gets turned off if the conditions are really bad. now that the sun is up they could see but can you imagine being in the dark. no power and then
8:06 am
maybe a battery's running low on your flashlights that that is the way it is right now because pg e they don't want to start another wildfire. we are in downtown saint alina businesses are operating just down the road and if you watched us this morning, i was at base camp and pg and e let me show you some video they have hundreds of workers coming and going every hour as 2 reasons james and darya one they are still busy restoring the infrastructure re story, the power poles that transformers that were wiped out because of the glass fire which by the way is still burning. it's contained, but it's still burning the after store that and they have to make sure they're ready to go when the power is switched off and then start the inspection process of the power lines when the power gets turned back on so they have never been busier as far as pg e is concerned because they have taken over that field as far as napa county 3200 which is a
8:07 am
little bit less than the projected number of 4300 yesterday alameda county you're looking at about 335 customers and then in contra costa county about 200 or so customers could be in the dark starting tonight, depending on the wind conditions i got a chance to talk to a woman about 10 minutes ago, she lives in saint alina she also runs a winery. here's her reaction to having no power. >>i get that it's a safety is super annoying especially the work line and you're not that there's as harvest this year because of the smoke if you're trying to run your winery and the power gets cut it to read all your fermentation said the tank eating everything the figure out a way to do that kind of on your own. so that has other issues in the middle of really busy season. totally understand her safety so i don't know really what the right call. either way.
8:08 am
>>nobody really knows what the call is either way but they have to tap dance pg and e says they will try their best to send a text alerts to let people know in advance that your power could be out and even though your power is out it is not as easy as flipping on a switch because they want to make sure that their system is ok the whole reason behind this is not to start a wildfire, which means downed power lines so they have to go out there check the power lines and is not as easy as downtown streets. there are some areas that are so remote that are hard to reach. they might even have to use a helicopter to look down to see if those lines are still a lot before they flip the switch james, and darya altogether could be about 12 hours after the danger pass. >>back to you try take some time thank you very much well and don't forget you can always track the very latest on the power shut off any time with the kron 4 app you can find full forecast here interactive radar all the tools you need to stay on top

>>sheen right now and we are taking a look at the weather and traffic we are i see john over ball a lot of fog there looks like how we work our way back to do a bit of a foggy night and i know earlier this morning, you know when we'll big live shots that were darken clear-cut lights, you know the nice thing about this fog is the winds come down overnight which actually like left the window open essentially see aug came back cooling us off just a little bit. later today, it's just the office and that's gonna draw them back up again so i mean the fog we can appreciate these days because we've been in the midst of such dry conditions for sure sure does make for the prettiest view you're looking out there from our berkeley >>let's kind of a grey start to the morning for the east bay wasn't that way to start, but it certainly is now and that's because winds are light
8:15 am
enough allowing that cool ocean air to push in right along the bay which is see up there in the north bay though those inland areas that are in the breezy conditions that's going to spread for the rest of the bay area later on and really result in some pretty warm and windy conditions later today which is why we're back into red flag warning territory for yet another day tomorrow afternoon looks to be windy and again as is the case also on saturday, this is 05:15pm on saturday see widespread winds not just for san francisco, but all the way towards our inland areas, gusting to a 20 to 30 mile per hour range. then come sunday into monday morning and this is what really is especially concerning here not just is it going to be windy but especially windy for spots that are usually seeing winds gusting as high as 50 miles per hour like oakland hayward san francisco sonoma fairfield up to calistoga with this fire danger not only high. but by sunday night into monday morning. we could be seeing some to breeze if the winds do play out as such as they're being seen here with areas of
8:16 am
branches falling on roadways and things so we'll keep you updated on that. but by no means are we done with these windy conditions just yet if anything only getting windy or into next week at least we're getting cooler next week which will help out some as we continue to look at this high fire danger red flag warnings you see them in similar spots as we have over the past few days the inland east bay, north bay, especially upper elevations and now right along the san mateo coast in the santa cruz mountains, gusts of wind as high as 40 miles per hour for many of these spots. now we're trading in this high-pressure ridge with an area of low pressure and the resulting dip in the jet stream that is pushing cooler air in our direction as that happens though winds are going to be funneling in and really only increasing towards the latter part of the weekend which is why we're in the midst of such windy conditions towards the end of this forecast temperatures in the 70's 80's today, no 90's anywhere in sight. we traded those in yesterday in vacaville you're in the 90's today, it's going to be mid 80's for the same spots and as for the next 7 days daytime
8:17 am
highs will only further cool from the 80's today for inland areas down into the 70's friday saturday and sunday bayside areas also in for a nice cool down with low 80's for the bay today. but 70's and even 60's by saturday and sunday and for your coastal spots, temperatures also further cooling from the 70's to the 60's through the weekend. robin. >>thank you john we're checking back in on the richmond sandra fell taking a peek at 5.80 it's already improving earlier we were stacked up here at the toll plaza way back from castro but now it's just beyond the western drive on ramp to 5.80 westbound so it looks really good it's already winding down 9 minutes for that trip into the north bay with no big problems here at the bay bridge toll plaza check this out and improving commute into san francisco. we consider this a minor way we were crawling back from the bottom of the maze that's no longer the case were still hot spot free 10 minutes is a great average for you off to the fremont street exit checking in on some or drive times we have some construction on the east shore freeway and a minor accident in berkeley, so it's
