5:07 am
shutting things down quadrant by quadrant. relatively small inconvenience. >>you know for a day or something i sure want more fires appear. >>one store a generator to prepare for the outages. this is because they want to lose thousands of dollars and spoiled food when the power goes off overnight. >>and in addition to the power shut offs of course the other big part of this story is the fact that the bear is bracing for high temperatures today, we're talking the potential in some spots for triple digits. i heatproof before i left this morning would that advisory goes into effect later this morning just when the air is going to warm up so. >>closed down earlier people we talked to are ready to conserve kron four's will tran is live in concord with the details good morning. well. >>james darya it's 77 degrees already in concord according to the will appeal and a lot

5:18 am
from berkeley here skies are beautiful and clear all the way out to the coastline with high pressure ridge in place that's ushering out this hot and dry offshore flow. no fog expected all day long today marine layer going to be nonexistent for the bay that means humidity very low temperatures hot and winds going to be an issue through the day vacaville right now 31 mile per hour winds. sonoma calistoga atlas peak in danville right there with you with some very breezy conditions. this morning that will continue to stay with us through the morning before a brief come down early this afnernoon. then winds kick back up on into the evening tonight into friday morning, another windy start to the day but winds come down tomorrow afternoon and stay calm for the rest of the weekend after that point which point these red flag warnings were in the midst of currently will expire. the i was still in effect today though and lasting through the evening tonight for the santa cruz mountains all of the inland east bay as well as portions of solano county napa county is sonoma and marin counties
5:19 am
winds gusting in these areas as high as 45 to 50 miles per hour at the peak today as far as temperatures go warmer one than yesterday near 90 in both mission financial districts while sunset district out to golden gate park all in the 80's 80's as well for pacifica elder not at half moon bay right along the coastline in trading in many 80's yesterday right along the bay shore with some 90's today so noticeably hotter one. redwood city and san carlos each up to 94 while in the south bay mid-nineties for san jose santa clara and milpitas east bay temperatures solid 90's from fremont hayward on over into the tri valley and up to concord in walnut creek danville you are hot spot today at 98 degrees. oakland at 91 san leandro at 94 sonoma also tied for the hottest of spots today. also at 98 degrees no triple digits at least but close enough. tomorrow's temperatures won't be much different will still be in the low 90's for both inland and bay side areas.
5:20 am
tomorrow afternoon winds begin to calm down and by the weekend. we're still toasty but not as high and not near as windy at that means fire danger not much of an issue. robert all right. thank you john looking forward to that cool down. >>well let's check in on the morning commute a lot of you don't look forward to the commute right, but it's really not bad right now it's going to get heavier as we continue through the morning but for now we are trouble free on our bridges which is fantastic news if you're about to cross the bay, let's head over to a 5.80 we're checking in on the richmond sandra fell here. it is 5 was found leading up to the pay gates. and yes more cars rolling through the toll plaza that it's an easy drive 7 minutes. that's not bad right to make it off to one o one what about the bay bridge, 80 west one of the most popular bridge us during the morning drive more folks heading into san francisco as well, but no delays night right now it's just clear all the way across the upper deck the only problem i'm tracking is in san jose. the bird avenue on-ramp to northbound to 80 all lanes may still be blocked there at that ramp to deal with a car fire that
5:21 am
sparked a grass fire. so crews are dealing with that a little slow through the scene but no major delays were still at 11 minutes for north to 80 san jose to cupertino just a little hiccup on the nimitz working your way toward downtown oakland northbound approaching 23rd the usual construction, so minor crowding there if you don't want to bother with it just take 5.80 west instead of the northbound them it's back to you. >>very much robin 5.21 we are tracking the latest coronavirus numbers across california and the bay area and beyond as you can see here on the list globally we have more than 38 million confirmed cases with more. with more than a million deaths in the united states. we've got more than almost 8 million confirmed cases right now statewide more than 865,000 with 16,000 plus deaths and in the bay area. more than a 107,000 confirmed cases with more than 1600 deaths now because of covid-19.

5:24 am
some women make as little as 42% of what a man makes. voting yes on prop 16 helps us fix that. it's supported by leaders like kamala harris and opposed by those who have always opposed equality.
5:25 am
we either fall from grace or we rise. together. proposition 16 provides equal opportunities, levelling the playing field for all of us. vote yes on prop 16.
5:26 am

5:32 am

5:33 am
wildfires in years past and then finally as we roll up to the north bay you'll see here sonoma napa county hills. also impacted again those areas colored in with the pink those the areas where the power has been shut off. and we've seen firsthand it's pretty dark there when there is no power kron 4 sarah stinson is in the dark in calistoga this morning. well there's a few lights behind to do that. >>i'd run them on with my they have generators here i'm live in the palace, togo where they have only the street lights on and all of them so it's very dark in some areas driving through saint helene and now in calistoga it is very dark and very eerie and the power has been off since 6 o'clock last night so we're in the first beginning hours of the power being shutoff ipg need here in kelso there's 2,277 bge customers without power
5:34 am
and is going to be until tomorrow night so we still have a long road to go on in saint helene others about 193 customers without power in the unincorporated areas of napa county 6,751 so a lot of people without power this morning there's also a ton in sonoma county. >>1700 in the unincorporated area and then in sonoma there's about 97 customers so people hope they prepared been talking about this since monday >>it's a lot of trucks going by me right now there's a lot of generators in this area and you can hear that they're very loud lot of businesses by generators a lot of people buy them for their home and i am starting to feel like. >>the heene i think feel that i think so too obviously just lost her audi we'll try to reconnect with sarah in a little bit but he's do when you prepare for an outage you
5:35 am
need to get gas for the generator and for car batteries charge everything up get the spare batteries the do we call those the old fashioned kind you know like an actual battery when i say better i think people think batteries like for you know kids there around look it up the batteries that you could never where one know those are the batters local mall or ones that always my flashlight seems to take c batteries and i okay so stock up kids. yeah, another big story that we're following in the bay area is going to be in the triple digits, so you got to prepare for heat that's a whole different thing that's where you need to have lots of water, yeah, and fans and deeper if you're house yes, right and try to conserve as much powers can so that you don't actually trigger a power outage in your area kron four's will tran life it conquered with more on that part of the story well. >>james at 77 degrees. i chose to wear black this morning. this morning being the key phrase and not this afternoon i will be on fire because it's
5:36 am
going to be hot already 77 degrees in concord they are taking steps just add to our coverage, many places in agencies taking steps you can see right there is says area close extreme fire danger we're at lime ridge open space. it is gusty this morning once the sun comes up you can see it with the trees behind me so too dark for us to show you on camera but trust me it is gusty in concord and then pretty much in most places in the bay area take a look at your screen. we built some graphics for you these are the things that you need to know to hopefully keep your power on try to conserve power as you guys talked about you don't want to tax the system try to get your workout done early as possible because the heat will be coming there could be areas in there upper 80's to low 100's, i mean john traber has talked about this being unseasonably warmer what we would normally see during this particular time of the year so here comes another
5:37 am
round of he weighs make sure that your pets are not in your car have plenty of lakewood lot water available to you. >>because we do know it's going to be hot for the next several days and hot could be nice for a lot of people but what we've learned over the past couple years hot could be downright dangerous and destructive with them dry gusty conditions, the power lines possibly coming down and that is why pg and e even though perhaps the system might not be taxed. they are worried about power lines possibly coming down in triggering another wildfire so be careful about that make sure you do your part. here's another graphic that we build for you i can tell you that the flex solar will take place not this morning. so you're good to go come 3 o'clock this afternoon all the way until 10 o'clock at night. that is the flex alert. they usually give you a text a heads up to let you know that your location could be without power. >>and conserve energy make
5:38 am
sure that your air conditioner set at about 79 or 80 degrees. if you didn't catch all of us don't worry about it we have it on kron 4 dot com all the information that you need and of course. >>kron on i am willing to do my part as well i'm willing to cut off the power. >>sit in the dark if necessary to prevent another wildfire and james you can come over you'll see me sitting on the couch. just like this i am tired of covering wildfires and more importantly people are tired of seeing their homes go up in flames. so you come over james you only live a few miles apart carry the door just like this that that's actually pretty scary thing i've seen this one actually got a look at the tape later well say >>because of thank you very much we'll time out place. yeah i think 38. still ahead are on the kron 4 morning news. it is the final day of confirmation hearings for supreme court nominee judge amy coney barrett we'll have a

5:42 am
qualifications whereas the democratic ones will focus on topics like abortion health care and voting rights all issues senators have grilled barrett on this week. >>americans want to know your legal positions, democrats on the senate judiciary committee like richard blumenthal tried one last time to get judge amy coney barrett to opine on hot-button legal issues she would likely face if confirmed to the nation's highest court you're pushing me to try to violate. >>the judicial canons of ethics for advisory opinions and i worked through that blumenthal focused on lgbtq rights think of how you would feel. >>as a or. let's be an american to hear that you can't answer sure you. >>i don't have any agenda. fellow democrat cory booker pressed barrett on the role of racial bias in the criminal justice system in the system right now that so many people feel like isn't just that those words written on the building the supreme court equal justice under law. >>doesn't apply to them. i am.
5:43 am
>>fully committed to equal justice under the law for all persons republicans on the committee why john kennedy and marsha blackburn continued to defend barrett against democrats accusations are you a racist i am not racist senator kennedy i have appreciated that you have said repeatedly i have no agenda. during a campaign rally wednesday president trump told supporters he made the right choice that would want to run against her right now. >>and chairman lindsey graham said their its position on the court is all but certain you will be confirmed. god willing. >>the first vote on garrett's nomination will happen today, but it's more of a procedural one to hold it over until next week and then final approval on the senate floor is still expected the week before election day in washington, i'm jessi to nor. all right, thanks a lot of jesse. >>time now is 5.43, here's a quick live look outside our camera along the embarcadero giving us a look here at the
