7:02 am
happening for san francisco points west. but off to the east bay. when you get closer to central valley. probably hazy will work as a descriptor and the system will help clean us out. we'll take a look at all of that. plus a heat spike coming our way by the week's end. noel. thanks, dave. our top story this morning wildfires continue to burn out of control across northern california. >> destroying small towns including greenville in plumas county this morning. the dixie fire on track to become the second largest wildfire in state history. growing larger in size than the mendocino complex fire that burned in july of 2018 as of this morning. the dixie fire has burned 447,000 acres containment is just at 21 per cent. first responders say at least 4 people remain unaccounted for michael shure brings us the very latest. >> the raging dixie fire continues to destroy everything in its path.
7:03 am
including the gold rush era town of greenville, reducing more than 180 homes to ashes and threatening more than 10,000 buildings in the northern sierra mandatory evacuations remain in effect in several communities. but some people have been allowed to return home to check for damage. what happened? greenville's my uncle amendment. >> they were my sister's house in quincy on with the trailer. they went back home the next night blew it. >> state and federal resources are being provided to battle 29 major wildfires. the fires not just destroying forestry homes and buildings but making the air quality dangerous. >> we're not just talking about biomass burning, but we're talking about also other compounds, even paints plastics computers materials that we have been doors that can be consumed by the fire
7:04 am
and be part of the particles that we are actually breathing the dixie fire's impact not only in the air but on the ground and drought conditions in the next year could make rebuilding a years long process even after a fire, there's still lots of dry fuel that can catch on fire the next year. so another year of drought make it very, very difficult. there's me all this infrastructure, the basically has to removed like a hazardous waste site. >> california's fire season is on track to pass last year's, which was the worst burned in recent state history since the start of the year. more than 6,000 fires have destroyed more than tripled the land for the same period in 2020. michael shure ktla 5 news. >> well, the dixie fire doesn't seem to be letting up any time soon. an investigation as to how its part has already begun. a federal judge has ordered pg and e to explain its potential role in all of this last

month, a tree fell on the utility companies. power line at the start of the fire. p g has already stated its equipment may have been responsible pg and e has about a week to respond to the judge's order. another big story. now smoke of course, from the dixie fire and other wildfires in northern california drifting here into the bay area. it's forced the bay area air quality management district to extend an air quality advisory through today. there's still a possibility the air could get worse over the next few days as well. kron four's camila barco joining us now live in the east bay with more on air quality out that way. good morning, camila. >> good morning. also currently here in walnut creek and in the distance you can see that there's some fog and some hazy skies. but i will say since i've been here, sense. i was last year on friday. i have seen some improvement and they're still no smell of smoke. however, other parts of the bay area may see much more of an impact
7:06 am
because of these wildfires north of us. take a look at this map from the bay area, air quality management right now. the entire bay area's air quality is moderate and it's been like this since friday. this means it's mostly risky for people who are sensitive to air pollution. now, the quad copter 4 shows us some of the effects, the fires have had in the bay area. it's been nothing but hazy skies. at some point you can even barely see the sign the poor air quality we're experiencing is because of the macfarlane monument dixie and river complex fires the north and east bay. we'll see more of the impact, including livermore concord and in places with higher elevations now air quality experts say the smoke is above 1500 feet in the air, but it should not pose any health risk. walter wallace with the bay area's air quality district recommends the best ways for people to stay safe. in case they encounter smoke in the air. >> the air quality. it is not at the ground level. it's not
7:07 am
that bad. but in certain higher elevations, it is pretty bad now. it is extremely unpredictable weather. weather patterns are going to go if the smoke at the higher elevations does drop to ground level been what we would do is we would actually call a spare the air day and let people know that, yes, air quality has been the unhealthy for sensitive groups or worse range. and in those cases what you would want to do is, you be indoors with the windows and doors as long as he possibly setting up a clean air room with and some type of air purifier and making sure that you're out. you know, your windows or caulk and things of that nature. but really just limit your exposure outside of the best thing you can do if you believe that the airport is unhealthy in your area. >> now the best way to to look up your air quality is by going online or on your phone, i have an iphone so you can either go to your weather at you can go to your weather app and it will tell you what the air quality is in that area. so since i'm currently in walnut creek. it says that the

7:17 am
fog was rolling in. you couldn't see much of are we going to be dealing with a lot of fog on the coast again today. we will in the morning hours. but once that mixes you know, pretty much a good to go the other thing is to is that fog will roll in as intense tonight as we've been seeing it for me for the last couple of evenings around san francisco. it always does. but. >> elsewhere because the system dropping south and you'll see this in the forecast maps coming up in just a bit. this is kind of a good thing helping to clean out our atmosphere a little bit with all of this, too. here's a shot from half moon bay. as you can see, got the overcast sky conditions with us this morning of that will again turn to a hazy sunshine as we get to the afternoon hours as the golden gate bridge starting to see a little bit of the bottom of the tower and the south and current winds are not doing much for right they typically do pop up in the afternoon. but this is going to be driven by a little disturbance coming in from our north that we would like the whole of it to bring us a nice little rain opportunity. but that's not really going to be happening temperature check lower 60's
7:18 am
light at the east bay short. i got the mid 60's inland. their 50's up to the north bay with 59 for san jose stormtracker 4. if you look real carefully, you can see it about here as that line of clouds drops that south. you can see all the bulk of the moisture is well up to the south. that's ok because this will be a nice broom to kind of clean us out providing with it. some winds. that's not really a good thing because inland, they firefighters, of course, battling the fires. they really don't hear about winds. so the will be a little bit of that risk going on here. let's go forward with the sea just dropping south by mid-afternoon today. the fog is going to try to recover overnight like the well was talking about around san francisco. we get it, but it's going to fill up the whole bay area like it frequently does already by 10 or 11 o'clock for tonight. ultimately, of course, monday morning will be here, but quickly mixing out and notice how quiet it is remaining in the sierra. we're not getting any showers or thunder shower activity. the monsoon is put base was basically an area of kind of a a weak disturbance, an area of low pressure frequently that
7:19 am
will give us a rain event with this. but just because you don't have a to help out we get all the wind speaking of which it looks like this. typically they do pop anyway in the east bay provide some cooling relief but this guy, we have some aloft help to so that should help with the haze issue as well. helping to kind of flush out the atmosphere. the only thing missing, of course, is to get a nice rain event out of it. we'll see. the winds also pop tomorrow afternoon 2. but that will be driven. more on the aftermath of this and with the inland heating that tends to drive those onshore winds. so today is clearing turning a bit breezy. some leftover. hey, still with us. concentrations will be a little heavier aloft probably in the east bay and some portions of the north bay early week mild for monday. complements of that system. warming up tuesday very quickly, as you can see, and a new wrinkle today is it looks like another heat spike coming thursday friday. there's in 2 days to watch. we're looking at 100 possible around the delta contra costa county and also getting some 80's going on along the east bay shoreline as well today. now

tends to be where the fog encroaches in the evening hours anyway. but it will happen from west to east in terms of the clearing patch. by the way, is an addendum a little bit and central valley. they're really looking at to that air quality because of all of this. here's what happens for the week ahead. we're looking for a warm up little way. but some moisture coming our way north from the monsoon which will continue in the southwest. we don't see anything with that. but it's really a heat up. we're expecting towards the end of the week. you'll see that on the seven-day 65 san francisco in the 4 zone forecast mid to lower 60's at the coast. we have the 70's on the bay side to the south and still some 80's hanging on here. redwood city palo alto. and in the south bay lower 80's at that. for the most part and even morgan hill, los gatos mid-eighties going on 82 cupertino east bay shoreline to the south. now back to the upper 70's compliments of the wind shift upper 80's. you can see tri valley 88 walnut creek and concord 66 for berkeley. so noticeably warmer inland 67 the lay whoa, 84 fairfield 75 for napa and 83 santa rosa
7:48 am
temperatures fall a little bit in response to this 92 by tomorrow. we plow through the upper 90's. i just couldn't put a 100 on there, but it's going to be awfully close by friday saturday. well. >> for your help this morning. many people in their 30's are busy with their careers and their growing families. so they don't seem to have time to take care of themselves. but how we maintain our health during our 30's will be a predictor of our health for the rest of our lives. if you're 30 something like myself and already feeling the effects of aging our health expert walk is here with her longevity to do list in your 30's. i'm really appreciative of this care. and i turned 32 in just a few days. the other morning. i woke up. my back was randomly hurting. i feel like, well, this is just the rest of my life. >> well, this is dedicated to, know, welcome, happy birthday. thank you. thank you. you put together quite a list the 5 health risks to watch out for.
7:49 am
and number one is weight gain. weight gain. yes, metabolism starts to slow down and that's because muscle mass starts to diminish af. once you hit the 30 c o 3 to 8%. >> loss per decade. so what you ate in your 20's in the amount of a huge amount you ate in your 20's. doesn't quite apply when he hit the 30's or else you're going to gain weight and is a higher risk for some other issues. >> exactly. a high blood pressure for one. so definitely want to start looking in managing and monitoring your blood pressure. >> the to cancer. cervical cancer. and that's interesting, too, because 78% of the new cases are found in women between 3039. so definitely get the pap test every year and then to testicular cancer in. that's where that's pretty rare. but
7:50 am
it's banned in 50% of that type of cancer is found in men between age 2034 so something to >> not i'm diabetes as well. diabetes definitely. so if you do have extra weight new. they're carrying high blood pressure. all those things. >> lead to a diabetes and diabetes is linked to cardiovascular disease. so and a lot of people don't know that they even have pre diabetes. and so it starts in your 20. so definitely get tested for your high blood sugar. yeah. this is like not the time to avoid going to see your doctor right. in your 30's east art happened reality sets i feel it. i feel like okay. you do have a longevity to do list, things that we can do to try and all of these risks. and and these health
7:51 am
issues at number one issues at number one stretching. that seems like a easy one. >> stretching you may lose muscle mass as you age, but you can never you never have to lose your flexibility and your flexibility if you you start losing your flexibility, you're just not going to be able to do a lot of things that you did in your 20's. what i like to do is i'd like to make some of the young younger ones. live like 2030's year-old with the older adults. the ones in their 60's and 70's. and so it's kind of a preview. >> of what can happen if you don't take care of your flexibility. i mean, that's when we start to get the back pain lower back pain, that sort of thing. >> yes. so if you're already experiencing that now that he's >> definitely because stretching your muscles are tight. there's shorten a long day, least some of that tension. i feel like the pandemic pushed us all away
7:52 am
from our normal, you know, going to yoga class and that sort of thing. we really need to get back into those routines. if we lost improving your body composition. how do we do that? so that is reducing body fat and increasing muscle mass. and that will also help with your metabolism. so weight training definitely weight training and getting enough exercise. so watching the diet as well as exercise real important and getting our sleep improving. our sleep skills. yes, and sleep will have an effect on weight to steady show that if you don't get enough sleep, which is at least 7 hours or 7 hours is actually they the ideal amount. but if you're not getting less than that. and a lot of 30 somethings are getting a lot less than that. because they're so busy and families and and all tend to gain weight alcohol consumption adds to 8 games
7:53 am
here asking us to quit the smoking and reducing that alcohol consumption. >> all those short term hangovers that you may have had in your are going worse affected as you get into your 30's indefinitely. it's a good time to start cutting back because you are now at a higher risk of some of these diseases linked to smoking and linked to alcohol. and i a really good one hand you have is balancing home and work, which i think it's hard for 30 year olds. >> it is. it is. and it's a good idea to kind do the self checks every once in a while. and my balancing my work life and my home life and my eye reaching out to my friends and. >> and and just just to see because you need to be it's a good time to practice relaxation and really deacon pressing because that can lead to. and what i see in the older years. a lot of chronic diseases like heart disease and coronary disease is in and

8:06 am
the bay area may see something different. take a look at this map from the bay area, air quality management. most of the bay area is shaded in yellow. and that means that the air quality in the area is moderate. so it means that mostly it's mostly risky for people who sensitive to air pollution. now, the quad copter 4 shows us some of the effects the fires have had in the bay area. it's been nothing but hazy skies. at some point you can even be barely see the sun. >> now this poor air quality. we're experiencing is because of the macfarlane monument dixie and river complex fires the north and east bay. we'll see more of the impact, including places like livermore concord and places at higher elevations. air quality experts say the smoke is above 1500 feet in the air, but it should not pose any health risk. here's walter wallace with the bay area's air quality district management. >> a lot of the smoke tends to be aloft. but we are seeing some localized impacts in the north bay in parts of the east
8:07 am
bay. so in those cases where there are those localized impacts. we're letting people know that if you to smell smoke, you probably are being affected you should take measures to protect yourself and your family. but limiting your exposure outside. if a lot of that smoke happens to drop and we see that the air quality monitors are showing unhealthy levels may believe that it's going to be unhealthy based on the weather patterns. they would call a spare the air for the following day, but it's all determined on whether or not what the weather is going to look like what the smokes going to do. >> now, if you want to get a better idea of what your air quality is in the air. you can look online or on your phone i know i said the air quality has gotten better and actually just got better within the past hour. my iphone actually tells me that the air quality here in walnut creek is moderate at last check. will in the last hour. it was the air quality index was at 62 and now it's at 53. so we're starting to see some of that air quality get better. well,

8:17 am
a professor one time in college said poor excuse for a front and that's kind of what this one is. but hey, it's what the doctor ordered from us help clean out our atmosphere. bring in some cooler temperatures. now we bring any rain or anything like that, which was what fronts oftentimes do. but no, not this go around certain not this time of season anyway. lower 60's light up the east bay shoreline 66 for antioch 62 conquered 50's up to the north bay. 62 san jose. here it is. you can hardly make it out. typically seen a line of clouds that come dropping south rain and all that. no, it's this time of year. you don't see that. but it's going to go right across the bay. give those on shore. winds not just to the surface. we're going to get that too. and some cooling. but also a lot in this also cleans out or atmosphere a little bit at least tries to do when it can. so here's what happens on future cast for you kind of see it. they're a little bit kind of pushing the way through the marine layer. we'll get winds certainly at the service. we do have the recovery of the some of that marine layer by midnight or so. but it's going to be much
8:18 am
more restricted than it was yesterday and we probably won't see as much in the way of this drizzle and light rain shower activity that we saw this weekend in the wake of this front. temperatures drop a little bit today. but inland bam, they're going to pop back to the 90's probably as early as tomorrow. and then we're looking for the development of a little bit of a heat spike. here are the winds at the surface on shore inland. however, because of inland heating that will drive which typically does drive the onshore winds. but this front is helping along the way. so we get nice broad base of on shore. winds across the bay, not just necessarily in those valleys, although they'll be a little heavier there and around the delta, particularly all the way to tomorrow. so for today, clearing breezy and all that stuff. some leftover hayes. yeah. now by the afternoon, you might get some activity that will help clear things out to the east bay mild monday. but start to warm up in the inland valleys though mid-nineties well inland, it looks like as we get to by tuesday or wednesday. the end of the week's what we're really worried about we'll see temperatures pop near 100. i'm

9:02 am
grown to more than 463,000 acres that's a 16,000 acre jump overnight. fire crews were able to keep up, though, as the blaze does remain. 21% contained for comparison only the august complex fires from last year are bigger than this one. those fires combined to burn more than 1 million acres. now, as for the dixie fire first responders say at least 4 people in nearby communities remain unaccounted for michael shure brings us the very latest on the firefight. >> the raging dixie fire continues to destroy everything in its path. including the gold rush era town of greenville, reducing more than 180 homes to ashes and threatening more than 10,000 buildings in the northern sierra mandatory evacuations remain in effect in several communities. but some people have been allowed to return home to check for

9:04 am
drill make it very, very difficult to all this infrastructure that basically has to removed like a hazardous waste site. >> california's fire season is on track to pass last year's, which was the worst burned in recent state history since the start of the year. more than 6,000 fires have destroyed more than triple the land for a% the same period in 2020. michael shure ktla 5 news. >> well, the dixie fire doesn't seem to be letting up any time soon either an investigation as to how it sparked has already begun a federal judge has ordered pg and e to explain its potential role in all of this last month, a tree fell on the utility companies. power line at the start of the fire and pg and has already stated its equipment may have been responsible pg and e has about a week to officially respond to the judge's order. now smoke from the dixie fire and other wildfires that are burning in northern california continues to drift here into the bay area. it's forced the
9:05 am
bay area air quality management district to extend an air quality advisory through today. there's a possibility the air could get worse. but so far this morning, kron four's camila barco she's seen it improve over the last couple of hours there in the east bay. good morning. camila. >> good morning. also, yeah, i've seen it improved in since i was last here on friday. you can now see the mountains, the hills. there's less of a haze and there's more blue skies here. however, i want people to take a look at this map from the bay area, air quality management. you can see that a majority of the bay area's air quality is still moderate and it's been like that since friday. so this means it's mostly risky for people who are sensitive to air pollution. now, the quad copter for 4 shows us some of the effects of fires have had in the bay area this past weekend. we've seen nothing but hazy skies and at some point you can barely see the sun this poor air quality. we're experiencing is because
9:06 am
of the mcfarland monument dixie and river complex fires the north and east bay. we'll see more of the impact, including in places like livermore concord and higher elevations. air quality experts say the smoke is above 1500 feet in the air. but it should not pose any health risk. here's walter wallace with the bay area's air quality management district. >> well, you know, wildfires are extremely unpredictable and they can happen at a moment's notice. and because these wildfires that we're dealing with right now are so unpredictable. our meteorologists are actually calling this on a day by day basis. that's the kind of feel comfortable doing right now. so if you notice, we've been calling a smoke advisories because we're so closely. so it's really difficult to tell and it would be almost irresponsible for us to really try to predict too far out so we're taking it on day by day basis and as of right now, a lot of the smoke is aloft and we're waiting to see what happens in the future.
9:07 am
>> so if you're setting out for a hike or a walk, you may want to check your air quality before you step out. now here in walnut creek. i've seen a major improvement this past morning currently the air quality in walnut creek. according to my phone, it says it is good and the air quality index is 36 now, that's a major improvement compared to friday when it was considered unhealthy and at about one 72 well, back to you. >> i really look forward to those improving numbers. camila. thanks for that live report. >> right now at kron 4 dot com. we have more on air quality and also tips for fire season just scan. the qr code that you see on your screen, you'll be taken straight to our wildfire web page. it's all there on kron 4 dot com. coming up here on the kron 4 morning news the white house covid taskforce issuing a warning as the delta variant fuel a surge of new covid cases across the country will bring you their message. >> plus, students in the east bay heading back to the classroom. very soon. we're going to take a look at the safety measures put in place.

9:16 am
topography we are seeing some warming happening inland already in the mid to upper 60's 71 for antioch. still, the cool 50's back to the north bay lower 60's light up the east bay shoreline with san jose coming in at 65 if you squint, you can make it out just barely this front dropping south here with a line of very light clouds. but it's really the action we're involved in here. that's what we need is not going bring us rain will be nicer really in the clouds, but it will help clean our atmosphere a little bit. take care of some of this haze. it will also call our for temperatures a little bit here by giving us a good strong onshore. wind coupled with the local winds. we tend to get any way with daytime heating. you can see it here on future cast for look at rain or just kicked out of the way from this front dropping south. this is by mid-afternoon. it recovers a little tonight and maybe some coastal drizzle but not as aggressive as we saw today. so that's what you can expect for monday morning will be again, some coastal drizzle is a possibility and the return again, as we go all the way up to tuesday. look at those winds. here's the uptick that happens this afternoon. good
9:17 am
coverage, too, because sometimes we get the inland. heating is just focused on the valley's like the delta in the valleys in the east bay. but like everybody will get hit by this little bit more in the north bay as well. but again, acting not just at the surface but aloft, we're all that haze is and we'll see again the upper tick that happens for tomorrow. so that's a nice welcome relief. although we could get some rain out of it. that would be really nice. clearing and breezy today we got some leftover hayes will keep that in the forecast and temperatures inland really bounce back tomorrow. but around the bay. that may be a little slower may take until tuesday before the start moving late in the week is what we're watching, though, for for temperatures to get up to about 100 thursday friday and to keep going on in the seven-day and near about 80 going along the east bay shoreline. so there is little bit of the heat warm up going on and a week whisper of so monsoon moisture from the south 65 san francisco today. some scattered clouds to mention 71 for oakland. 81 san jose hazy and mild. there you see a couple lower 90's off to
