8:01 am
tomorrow actually going to see our temperatures dip again. but let's take a look at what we're seeing out in berkeley at fog the conditions out there. but should burn off by this afternoon. visibility is already getting that are in some places such as hayward, we're down to 2 miles right now for visibility. as for satellite and radar southwest looking very dry as you can see, because of a ridge of high pressure north of us getting some showers in those states. here's a look at our temperatures this morning. so by 11. we'll have that fog clearing out temperatures along the bay will be in the 60's in our inland areas up to the 70's and then we'll warm up towards the afternoon. we had our daytime high temperatures which will actually in the 80's from many inland places as well as the down in san jose today. i'll have more on the extended forecast coming up in just a bit. for now house the roads looking you know what? things are pretty busy out there, erica. and if you're taking
8:02 am
bart, there's still a 10 minute delay between various and south hayward in the richmond direction. >> due to equipment problem on the trade. as you can see here at the bay bridge traffic is bumper to bumper. so we have a high wind advisory in place as soon as you reach the maze, if you're heading to the fremont street exit will take you a little under 15 minutes to make that drive. it's still pretty slow along 5, 8080. let's head over to the san mateo bridge. and check on things. there heading across towards the peninsula looks pretty dark. so again, there's some clouds and a little fog. take your time as you're driving still a solid 9 minutes to make it across towards the peninsula. let's get a look at the golden gate bridge heading into the city where there is a high wind advisory in a fog advisory in place. 20 minutes for your commute for you this morning and a look at the richmond sandra fell bridge has been pretty busy throughout the morning back down under 12 minutes for your drive time. we'll stay on top of this. but now we've got to get to this breaking news. we do yeah. following it out of the east bay right now. grass fire burning in fremont broke out earlier this morning and firefighters want to get this.
8:03 am
>> stamped out real quick. exactly. kron four's. julius evans is live at the scene this morning. >> with the details you only given out there all throughout the morning. what are you learning? >> well, the firefighters have contained this 2 acre fire. but they're saying the start of it is suspicious. now let's take a look at the map. so you know exactly where i'm at. i mean, the fremont hills and this fire is just off of peak metal trail now the call came in at 4.30 because a hiker on the main trail saw smoke and flames and of course, reported it immediately. now the 2 acre fire is in a canyon or in a drainage area. and that's what kind of made a little difficult at first for them to fight it because of the terrain. they it was so steep, but they were able to to contain the fire. and at this point they're just trying to mop up and get all the hot spots out take down 2 trees that damaged by the fire. now they think it's suspicious because there's no wires. if you come out live to me, you
8:04 am
can see that is just there's no wires, no intent is around here is just basically hillside and dry and that's why they say there's no no conditions that would have naturally cause for this fire to come bus on its own. so they're still investigating what really started this fire and they really can't do that until they have all hot spots out completely. now they said they were. we were very lucky because the conditions are very moist this morning. one firefighter checks. the other firefighter down on the main floor up on the main ground. that because it was moist because it was foggy. they said if it was hot or windy this. 2 acre fire could easily went to 10 acres. and i got to tell you, it's less than a mile away from housing and in a neighborhood just down the hill. so very lucky they jumped on this quickly. they put in a lot of resources. they have like 39 firefighters on this 2 acre fire. and like i said, a couple of your years
8:05 am
ago. you wouldn't have seen that many firefighters on on a on a grass fire. but because we're in a drought. they know they are against a really tough fire they're trying to put out every fire as quickly as possible. back to you guys. thank you for that. you only. >> so to piggyback on what you know, he was talking about those dry conditions and now firefighters are really worried about this upcoming fire season. we have kron 4. sarah stinson picking up that part of the story for showing us just how dry it is in other parts of the east bay. good morning. >> yes, dry here in contra costa county. it's dry up in the north bay, even in the south bay really all over the bay area. this is what we're seeing that dry fuel and then we've had a lot of low humidity coupled with very strong winds at least in the last week and that's caused a lot of grass fires to pop up across the bay area in the last couple of weeks. take a look. just yesterday, a fire sparked in pittsburgh on john henry johnson parkway and it grew to about 5 acres is under
8:06 am
control this morning. but then there's another fire on saturday in windsor. that burned 3 structures in at least 5 acres. and that's what happens when you see when you have these dry fuels, the fire takes off and takes out anything in its path. hopefully it's just landing on structures, but you never know. and that's why we always say have a go bag. you can see that heavy smoke in the north bay that fires under control as well. this morning. both of those fires in very dry areas. and we've seen dryers across our state. we've seen major wildfire sparking in southern california as well. this is only the beginning. so governor gavin newsom today we'll be talking about new firefighter equipment and a proposed 2 billion dollar investment in wildfire preparedness. this is the largest investment in wildfires. we've seen in state history. it's called the california comeback plan and it will be. enabling the state to take immediate action in improving forest health in wildfire suppression supporting that. and
8:07 am
protecting vulnerable communities from these catastrophic fires that we've seen in years passed just last year we had a horrific fires raging across the bay area and we expect to see that again. unfortunately, because we're already seeing all of these conditions that cause the perfect recipe. unfortunately for wildfire. so governor newsome will be speaking today at 1130 about this proposed plan and it's going to be a plan. we all want to stay tuned for because it affects all of us. so 1130 tune into our app kron on for now i'm live in concord. sarah stinson, back to you all right. >> thank you very much, sara. now we'll be taking the governor's press conference on wildfire preparedness starting at 1130 this morning. you can see it live on kron on. you can also download our 24 7 new streaming app with our qr code. it's on your screen. just point your camera at that cold. it's going to allow you to download that app, you'll be able to get the latest updates on that. over the north, a sonoma county has

8:09 am
for wildfires in california have food have a comfy to wear case. it gets cold. you know, at night, which it does sometimes. because, you know, the kincade fire was in october and it was cold at night and i did not prepare for so i was a little chilly at night. it's exactly what sonoma county officials are urging every resident to do. >> the county released evacuation maps ahead of peak fire season maps can be found on sonoma county's website. you type in your address zip code or click on your town or city county emergency officials say residents need to write down. there's oh number to help better understand the level of risk to their property when emergency arises they county has experienced back to back devastating wildfires since the temps fire in 2017, the fountain grove neighborhood in santa rosa was virtually wiped out and still rebuilding herrick learned a few lessons along the way. even before they come knocking on your door and telling you you've got to go, just go. you know,
