5:01 am
danger that continues to just be here with us. half moon bay other coastal areas on the peninsula and upper elevations of the santa cruz mountains all of the inland east bay, all of us a in lake county's most of napa and then upper elevations of sonoma and marin counties all these areas affected by red flag warnings now extended through tomorrow night as winds gust as high as 40 miles per hour in some of these areas and it's not just the winds, but also the very low humidity to our current temperatures right now actually looking pretty comfortable i'd say get outside enjoy this morning before another warm afternoon around the corner right now we're in the 50's 60's with one exception near santa rosa. at 49 degrees currently so your forecast today again going to be warm and again going to be windy course we need to know what traffic is looking like though still a little bit early i think for most of busy spots but where we sit right now robin the earlier folks can get out there the better job because that means they can beat the hot spots and we don't have any hot spots working right now we're checking in on the
5:02 am
trip into san francisco, 80 west at the bay bridge toll plaza looking good so far so nothing to worry about heading into san francisco right now it is delay free and easy 8 minutes off to the fremont street exit up to 92, this is our busiest bridge as usual and we already have some crowding leaving hayward heading over to the peninsula but you'll notice it's only on the flat section that's going to thin out by the time you reach the high rise all 12 minutes and growing to make that trip off to one o one we're checking in on some drive times around the bay area and they look good. the is short that's a 15 minute trip if you're taking 24 out of walnut creek over to the oakland maze that's 11 minutes. no problems for 5.80 or the nimitz freeway so once again off to a great start get on out there now we'll check more drive times for you coming up darya james thanks robin, let's talk red flag warning then again it's in effect for a big part of the bay area because the high winds. >>and dry conditions look at that graph that's going to be with us for at least the next couple of days kron 4 sarah stinson live in san mateo county right now. >>where weather conditions of course prompting that worry good morning sara.
5:03 am
>>good morning. yes, san mateo county now facing this red flag warning it's been extended here and it's been extended until tomorrow member it was in effect until wednesday. they extended it last night at 10 o'clock until tomorrow so be aware of that and take a look at this map you can see all of that red that is where this has extended to a lot of the bay area really other areas also in this morning are the north bay mountains east bay hills in interior valleys as well as the santa cruz mountains in san mateo county coast. we have more wins in the forecast up on mountain in mountains and ridges of 10 to 25 miles per hour with gusts up to 40 miles per hour. valleys could see gusts up to 35 miles per hour in the coast could see gusts up to 40 that combined with the extremely dry conditions causes potential for a fire to spark easier and spread rapidly there's also a
5:04 am
fire weather watch in effect as well so this is a scary time honestly because looking at john troubles a forecast that was looking at it is pretty concerning to see that these winds just continue to get worse and worse throughout the weekend. so we do expect the national weather service to extend this red flag warning best to be prepared for the worst-case scenario make sure you have that go bag ready and make sure doing everything you can to prevent a fire from sparking in your area reporting live in san mateo county sarah stinson back to you. >>all right, thanks. a lot sarah. so the other big story we're following this morning. a course the fact that thousands of people all across the bay area are waiting to see if they'll lose power during the next round of pg e power shut-offs now we have a map that we can share with you and it shows where pg and e again is anticipating to shut power off and as we zoom in you'll see in the north bay we have a number of locations now that either have the power shut off or potentially could have their power shut off.
5:05 am
later on today and for more on the story we have kron four's will tran he's standing by live in napa county with the details we need to know about will. >>well right now the power is on james and darya i'm in napa and you can see the lights right behind me you can also see the leaves of above me. this is important look at how still it is right now the winds are the big concern if the winds pick up obviously they will flip the switch and turn off the lights. not yet but they say there is a window where they could possibly do it. now yesterday they were talking about napa county facing as many as 4300 customers that could be in the dark. now that number's around 32 to 3300 customers that could have the power taken away to prevent wildfires in alameda county you're looking at about 335 customers in contra costa county about 200 the bottom line is 5 bay area counties are facing potentially being in the dark about 37,000 customers. many
5:06 am
people they have been told about this for the last several days and there are bracing for it reading on getting candles new batteries for their flashlights even told you yesterday that people are actually buying generators they are tired, it is so they're running out spending a lot of money installing generators in their homes to make sure that they are never without power. then we got a chance to talk to some residents in napa county. here's what they had to say about the latest around a potential shut offs. >>without power. i have no water. don't know electricity so. it's not fun for people up there. what they're going through he just lived through when we have to live through. >>and then. hope it all goes back to normal someday. >>this is she sounds like she's almost defeated by this but this is the way it is pg need they've been blamed for wildfires before so this is a preventative measure for them.
5:07 am
they are fearful that the strong winds could knock down the power lines and then light up the hillsides with flames and let's face it we have covered fires for so long now over the past 2 to 3 years historic wildfires which is why they're not going to take any chances, the danger should pass some time early friday morning and after that pg and e will inspect the lines and it probably will take within about 12 hours once the danger passes for everybody to get their lights turned back on. james darya. >>all right, thank you very much well, and don't forget you can track the very latest on these power shut off any time with the kron 4 app all you have to do is. downloaded it's free you have your full forecast interactive radar all of that available. so download it now today. >>it's 5 '07 and in the east bay alameda county is finally going allow businesses to offer more services indoors. so you won't have to use the outside tables only they're moving into a less restrictive tier allowing indoor dining

5:09 am
>>the new measures announced wednesday include allowing restaurants like apps to offer 25% indoor dining in addition retail space and malls can operate with 50% are several other. >>businesses that can allowing people inside theaters and. >>also churches steve van doren is with the pleasanton chamber of commerce you know it's a great step i'm i i'm glad it's finally see that and the county we first lake delton he was moving a little slower than we'd like to seen. especially when we contra costa county right next to us opening thing sooner and it's confusing to people in the tri valley because we think of ourselves as one region as far as some of the other businesses that are going to be able to open those include bowling alleys climbing gyms. >>and movie theaters as well as indoor gyms they can now increase their capacity to 25% indoor pool so still off the

5:11 am
5:12 am
5:13 am
>>time now is 5.13 and thanks for waking up with the kron 4 morning news, it looks like we have kind of the same story it's been red flag yeah going to be the warm windy side today. but there is some relief on the horizon is john's been promising us for the weekend. yes is it time to take out the air conditioning unit. >>i would say not it like this
5:14 am
weekend. yeah, right if you take it out i know might have to put it point again. this year has just been thrown curve ball has left and right so i don't make any promises too much. >>but yet today one more day in the 80's and then after this we actually have a pretty nice cool down ahead of us for the rest of the forecast. as we make our way through the forecast today you're going to notice out there that daytime highs are just a touch cooler for inland areas we are going to be looking at temperatures more than a touch cooler come the weekend though so officially going to be feeling like fall here in just a matter of time winds right now not the breezy us, but as you would expect later on today we've been seeing this pretty consistently. the past week where we start calmer and the day when the wind your side that's exactly the way you're thursday's looking by the time we work our way towards 02:00pm was peak, vacaville down through conquered all looking at some pretty steady breezes tomorrow morning starts another common one before winds pick up again and your friday evening. concord livermore hayward vacaville fairfield all looking at some pretty significant winds by
5:15 am
the end of your friday, even as we begin the school down now saturday, a nice cool day but look at this saturday still going to be windy 05:45pm san francisco, 25 miles per hour gusts. fairfield right there with you live or more in vacaville also in the 20 mile per hour range. then come sunday into monday which is actually going to be the most significant of winds that we have in this forecast and also one of our cooler days too. so this is the catch to the cool down is that we are looking at such strong winds, some of our models are showing oakland and calistoga winds gusting into a 50 mile per hour range, san francisco in sandra fell also very windy. so fire danger is going to remain of concern even as we do work our way out of the heat and back to some cool weather because humidity is so dry and winds remain such a factor as of right now red flag warnings remain until 10:00pm tomorrow for upper elevations of the north bay also and lake counties inland areas of the east bay and then coastal and upper elevations on the peninsula as we also saw yesterday in the midst of
5:16 am
this cool down as high pressure is nudged out of the region by this d sending low, what it's going to do though is still result in a pretty steady flow working its way into the state from the north. and that's where those strong winds come from so even though we are looking at a cool down. the winds just stay with us throughout this forecast. today's daytime highs, mostly in the 80's for inland areas, although cooling into the upper 70's for areas like the in fremont at 79 degrees san francisco 77 few 60's up the coast mixed in with some 70's to as for daytime highs inland daytime highs today in the 80's but look at the rest of this forecast inland working our way back down into the 70's for our bayside areas, temperatures also cooling a little further into the 70's and 60's while at the coast remaining in the 60's after today's low 70's. those are the updates on your forecast, let's get a look at traffic with robin. thank you john traffic looks good right now we're checking in on bay area bridges and. >>your trip into san francisco is nice and smooth. here's a
