10:07 pm
rain that some of these fires even from last year are able to restart. and so that gives you an idea how dry it is that water just not able to percolate down to the soil and also bring up plenty of moisture to drug not only drown those fires but also give substance to some of those routes around the bay area. so many of the trees and the plants are going to be weekend to disease and possibly die. adding to the fire danger around the bay area. so yeah, here's what we're looking at now through the night tonight. of course not much. you got a bit of a breeze out there as we head toward tomorrow afternoon. you'll notice the things begin to change again to get that afternoon sea breeze. and even though we are seeing a really extraordinary fire conditions. you start to see things get elevated by tomorrow afternoon as we start to see that sea breeze kicking in of 20, maybe 30 miles an hour in some spots that will be likely the case again as we get into saturday as well. saturday afternoon. a little more extensive. but next week. that is all going to change. we're talking about some triple digit heat. very hot temperatures rolling into the bay area. and we've already got dry conditions of
