4:46 am
starting out dark and early this morning. taking a live look out at san francisco. you can see the transamerica pyramid. dark and early for us this morning. 4:46 as we get started with the day. if you enjoyed the weekend, i'm assuming leaf looking, kari's forecast will look good out there. i got the words mixed up. >> monday will be a nice day. yeah, happens on a monday especially. as we talk about our air quality
4:47 am
it's a day where we are still going to have to monitor our north bay air quality. moderate as well as the south bay. look at how much particulate matter in the air. not too high at this point. just slightly above the 50 threshold we look for. below that it is good air quality. we are going to be watching out for the potential of a high fire danger in the north bay. now the winds start to pick up this morning and the northerly wind gusts will increase up to 30 to 45 miles per hour. those sustained winds at times will reach up to 10 to 25 miles an hour and humidity levels will be very low dropping below 30% so later tonight we will watch our north bay hills. that's after today as we continue to see some warm weather for our valleys with our south bay highs reaching up to 88 degrees in morgan hill. we're also going to see upper 80s for much of the east bay reaching up to 86 in danville.
4:48 am
75, nice and comfortable in oakland. a lot of fog along the coastline with a high of 68 degrees in daly city. for san francisco, 71 in the mission distrigt. the north bay reaching into the upper 80s as you head up toward ukiah today. novato reaching 83 degrees. so here is what's going on. we have high pressure building, and that's going to keep the rain away over the next few days. but then as a couple low storm systems move to our north that will increase our winds and also increase our fire danger for today. so we are going to have to potentially watch out for an offshore wind event, a northerly wind as we go into the middle to end of the week as well. high pressure will start to move back in. we may get more fog near the coast. our seven-day forecast shows a lot of changes here. we're starting out warm. slightly warmer tomorrow with our inland areas reaching up to
4:49 am
90 degrees and then the 70s by the weekend. we have the potential of an offshore wind event. now we'll also see our temperatures in the low 70s for san francisco but it will get much cooler as we head closer to the weekend. now over to mike, how is it looking for the commute? looking great. i don't want to jinx anything. green sensors dominate the screen. maybe smaller incidents on surface streets. not a major issue for the commute. right now it's clear and should be clearing in the next hour. i've circled the golden gate bridge where there's a fog advisory. the bay bridge has low clouds hovering around. there's a little bit of a threat coming down but not a problem for visibility for the drivers through the area.
4:50 am
we'll track if it's evolved. we'll see what happens. >> check out this developing story here. a man wanted for barricading himself on one of those lots at paramount studios in hollywood. so we're told this all started when police were trying to take a sexual assault suspect into custody, trying to use a taser on him. he got away so lapd was called in to help. officers shot at the suspect before he ran, barricading himself inside one of the buildings at the studio. he was finally arrested overnight. governor newsom is responding to an ""l.a. times"" report saying a spy plane was used to monitor the sacramento area enabled where the head of california's national guard lives. "the times" says it happened during the george floyd protest and a similar thing was done in three other cities -- minneapolis, washington, d.c., and phoenix. in the other cases it was it ger information about crowd flows and unrest but the rallies were
4:51 am
relatively peaceful. the governor says changes have since been made. the head of the guard major general baldwin tells the "l.a. times" the location of the home had nothing to do with that deployment. an "l.a. times" report of an abusive incident at california's four privately run i.c.e. detention centers. the report cites 250 calls reporting violence and abuse at four facilities. about half of those have been sex crimes. in only three cases did records show someone being charged. i.c.e. says it's committed to providing a safe environment and zero tolerance for abuse. the state has ordered all four to close within eight years' time. new this morning an uptick in gun sales during the pandemic. a new study by uc davis
4:52 am
researchers say since july around 110,000 new firearms were purchased in the state. more than half of the people already owned a gun. the remainder all new gun buyers. what led to the purchases? 76% of people said they were worried about lawlessness during the pandemic. another 56% of people said they were concerned about prisoners being released due to outbreak. 4:52 right now. not changing just yet. that's what l.a. public health leaders are saying after an uptick in covid cases there. l.a. county reported over 350 new cases over the weekend. health leaders say hospitalizations increased for the second straight day after dropping just below 700. right now l.a. county is in the purple and most restrictive tier. to move to the red tier cases need to drop to around 700 cases daily. hey, the 49ers, did you catch them over the weekend? they're back in business.
