numbers are not far apart. in san jose, len maroarers. a fire brigade plucked 6 people from rooftop as bad weather hit north italy a landslide is now blocking a tunnel and a bridge is collapsed nearby. rescue teams are searching for two missing people. all right, in the weather forecast, we are going to start off with smoke because that's the part of the atmosphere that's directly impacting you more than any of the others. and there's good news on this. if you look at the current readings right now across the bay area, you can see a pattern in the colors. notice how it is yellow near the coast. that is good. well, technically, it is moderate. but, in the sense of improving things, it's good because it's an improvement over where we have been for the last 36 hours. there's cleaner air from the coast. a stronger onshore flow is
6:44 am
improving the air quality if you are right near the water. and down in the south bay, the official air quality sensor for downtown san jose is still unhealthy for sensitive groups. and if you are far inland, you are not getting any help out of this yet. it is still unhealthy air here for the diablo and tri-valley and diablo valley livermore is looking at red dots so is pleasantton. the closer you get up here to the delta, air quality starts to get better. a little more influence from the delta breeze or the wind driving from the bay and moving across the street. so help and if you look at the city, yellow. that's good. and going up to the north bay, yellow is good, and through most of sonoma county along ty1, it's good. but, if you get into wine country, in sonoma or napa valley it's very unhealthy because the glass fire right there and all the smoke is sinking down to the valley floor. you can see plenty of haze from the camera on top of the sales force tower. so, it's going to look smoky when you step outside. but at least, it is getting a
6:45 am
little bit better. the official forecast has us at unhealthy for sensitive groups so give it one more day. now i want to show you this. this is what i want you to see. starting tonight, and going into monday, you will see stronger onshore surge that takes the smoke and pushes it far inland. air quality better today and should be much more noticeably improved for monday. we have to get through today, and a good part of sunday. but there is a sign we are going to -- we are going to clear this out. in the north bay as long as the glass fire is going, you will have air quality issues. you are too close he to the source of the smoke there. and daytime highs today will be warm. just like yesterday. mid to upper 80s in the south bay, and we will see plenty of 90s if you are far inland. low to mid-90s from 91 in livemore to 97 in pleasant hill. we will top out in the mid-80s for much of the bay and for the immediate bay that.
6:46 am
