fact, until six p.m. on monday, east bay hills in the east bay valleys, winds gusting easily over 40 miles an hour could be over 50 miles an hour for the berry hill's up above 2000 ft. relative humidity right around 10 to 20% here's the forecast model shown you the projected wind speeds for a few spots and all so the relative humidity levels you'll see those winds pick up. this is saturday morning, eight o'clock, then we warm up into the afternoon hours still breezy and you'll notice single digit relative humidity out toward fairfield and out toward conquered. so this is not the pattern we want to see. but unfortunately this develops as we head into the weekend was the strongest with expected saturday morning. well that maura this warmer weekend forecast coming up in just a few minutes. right. thank you so much. mark this is the earliest red flag warning and almost a decade for parts of the bay area. ktvu deborah villalon joins us now live and deb, this is something we usually do not see until late summer or even the fall.

by a sophisticated computer program called an algorithm, but because they're still not enough sensors in the area north of truckee, where the quake hit. shake alert thought that the moderate 4.7 magnitude quake was actually a much more serious six point. our earthquake early warning is not a perfect system. we estimate the magnitude and in this case we overestimated the magnitude by just a little bit. the alerts are near instantaneously passed on to critical infrastructure operators such as bart and caltrans. at the same time, they're sent to consumer applications such as my shake android emergency alerts and wireless emergency alerts. a warning came of a six point oh quake because the bigger the earthquake, the broader the reason of shaking and hence the broader region of people that would be alerted in this case, as we add more stations as we have densest station coverage, it just means that there are more stations with more data available more quickly. so far california has
installed 780 of a goal of 1115 sensors, ultimately to be cited has more earthquake sensors are built out, the system will be increasingly more accurate because the system words from every earthquake it senses and improves its predictions. even if people did not feel any shaking. but they still got an alert. we hope they still took that protective action and your phone if you download my shake could also be a part of the sensor network. using the my shake apparatchiks detecting the earthquakes with the phones themselves. tom vacar ktvu, fox two news. and a very weather. lots of sunshine today. more sunshine in your weekend forecast and some warmer temperatures. that would be the headline as we head into by your saturday and also with the fire danger. that is a big concern as we head into a first thing saturday morning, you can see the temperature profile tomorrow mid to upper sixties coast side around the bay low
