4:45 am
kron 4 morning news a harvey. the time for you now for a 44, am. >> on october. the 11th windy day. we have a lot going on in terms of pg e different areas are going to be impacted potentially by power shut off today. we're also tracking the winds. we talked about it earlier. i said it broke me up a little bit. but you slept through it right i slept right through it. so i know a lot of people to lighter sleepers maybe even like that. when so much last night i didn't hear it, but it was definitely windy when i did wake up and that's something we're going to be seeing through the day today on into the evening tonight and eventually into tomorrow, too. >> now even though temperatures are cool, your newark out how the weather center forecast to showing highs only in the 60's to 70's. it's the winds, the dry
4:46 am
humidity that all the dry brush that we have to. we've really got to kick up those winter late season rains just yet. and des fire danger is still a big concern. we get windy days like we have today golden gate bridge is crystal clear dry right now. but the camera is swaying in those stronger winds that we've got especially aloft across the region. skies are dry across the bay area. we do have a couple of sprinkles remaining mostly north of lake tahoe on up into the southern cascades. it's certainly nice to see at least some moisture across the region even though we don't have here. the bay area wind advisories and red flag warnings are in one of the 2. if you're watching right now, lower elevations are in the gold issue. those are wind advisories in effect in areas like san francisco, oakland san jose in santa rosa, our upper elevation areas. all of the inland east bay and then all of solano county are affected by red flag warnings that are in effect all day long. today and remain in effect into tomorrow, too. and
4:47 am
the wind is certainly the reason behind that those upper elevation areas seeing gusts as high as 45 miles per hour. now today's highs certainly are not hot. it's only 60's to 70's. so really the best part of your forecast today is the rather cool feel to it. if you are getting out there for more than just a few minutes. keep the jacket on hand all day long, 60's and 70's paired with the strong winds as we do have does make for a brisk fall feel to it now. your first and foremost concerned does need to, of course, be the heightened fire danger today and we'll be keeping you updated on anything regarding pg and e any potential loss of power. anything such as that as we do work our way through a very windy start to this week highs today and tomorrow are only in the low 70's. and even though we warm up after this point into the weekend, especially highs climbing into the 80's fire danger actually diminishes. and the reason behind that winds diminish so windy and cool to start a lot calmer and a little bit warmer towards friday saturday and sunday. great job. thank you for that. alright gusty winds across the bay bridge is a
