5:04 am
thousands of people from their homes. at least 2 people, we're told, have been hurt by those flames. >> meantime, the dixie fire has some evacuation orders now been downgraded. now they're just warnings as this fire is moving to the north. the dixie fire has burned about a 1000 square miles and after more than a month, it's still only 33% contained. cal fire says it's the first wildfire to ever burn across the sierra nevada mountain range. >> dixie fire. >> is the first fire that we're aware of that has burned. >> from. >> the west side of the mountain range all the way over and to the valley floor on the east side of the mountain range. we don't have any record of that happening before. >> more than 6,000 firefighters are battling the dixie fire right now. smoke from all those fires has created the hazy conditions that we're seeing. take a look. >> on the left. that's the view or not from lake tahoe from the sierra and you can
5:05 am
see much of anything. and then in the middle, that's pleasant hill. yeah, that's kind of what i saw out. my neighborhood yesterday just skies were completely hazy. i couldn't. >> couldn't see the mountains hardly all around you at all. hazy orange glow from the rising and setting sun. and if you look at car parked outside, it may be covered in like i did. yeah. and out of my driveway in fact, it looked just like that. that could have been my car. i came home yesterday. yeah, from work. it was already beginning to collect. an extended the air quality advisory through let's go now to the east bay. covers will tran has more on the conditions in lafayette this morning. how is it will? >> it's bad. i can see the ash just floating around right now. so if you're waking your car is a little bit dirtier and dirtier than it was last night. >> it's too dark to tell right now on high up at 6 o'clock once the sun comes up, i will show you. i can see with my eye. there is a blanket of
5:06 am
haze that sits on top of the hills. i'm in lafayette and i can tell you breathing is quite difficult. you didn't see me. but off camera was rubbing my temples because i think i'm coming down possibly with a headache. i'm not the only one because of the horrible conditions in fact, i don't need to show you. but just to quickly remind you really quickly just the conditions that we saw yesterday and it looks like it will be a repeat performance today as well. the hazy conditions all over the bay area because the fires that are burning north of us that air is bringing it down here and it's sitting right on top of us. no spare the air day. not yet. you talked about the advisory. they will monitor the situation over the next several days. they think that it could be better possibly into the weekend and early next week. but over the next several days, this is what we probably will be seeing, which is hayes. the orange high up in the sky. i mean, i see the sunrise being out in the field. and it's just an orange
5:07 am
ball going up, slowly up into the sky. you guys talked about the ash. so this is video from our co-worker tamra berry. she lives in martinez and she too got us a little bit of video of just the hazy conditions and all that ash that came down on top of her car and all the other cars all over the bay area. so i wouldn't even try to your car for the next several days because what's the point you will be covered with ash all over your car. we've got a chance to talk to a doctor from kaiser permanente. if you're thinking about a mask and that being your body armor. he says think again. i see pictures of people jogging wearing an n 95 mask. >> they're not understanding the picture. that is not a healthy thing to do. even an n 95 mask or respirator mask to call it and 95 because it screens out 95% of the particulate matter. that's 2.5 microns or smaller. what means
5:08 am
5% is getting through. and especially if you're jogging and breathing fast, you're going to be absorbing that. >> ad also goes on to say it's a vicious cycle. we are in a no-win situation, meaning that if you're outdoors right, then you will in all that bad air, the particulates that he was talking about. but if you're indoors, well, you could be exposed to the delta variant in covid-19. so it's very tough situation for all of us right now. and one thing to keep in mind, the doctor goes on to say if your lungs get inflamed, which usually happens for a long exposure with smoke. well, that leaves you more prone to coming down with covid-19 or other illnesses. so buckle up bay area stay inside and make sure that you try your very best early social distance at work. back to you. all much wealth. >> i would move on because 12 4 is your local election headquarters. and although governor newsome calls the recall a republican led
5:09 am
effort. there are democrats on the ballot yet. financial analyst and youtube creator. kevin path. raft is working to convince voters that he is a serious. >> democratic option. fact talk one-on-one with capitol bureau reporter ashley zavala. >> the california democratic party does not have an official backup candidate on the ballot. should governor gavin newsome lose the recall. but democrat kevin paffrath also known as meet kevin is confident he's at least the parties viable plan b avenue says branding is all about stop the republican recall. our argument is some california recall people are fed up. meet kevin paffrath, a political outsider and democrat in the wide field of republicans running to replace governor gavin newsome, the 29 year-old financial analyst youtube star and father of 2 boys describes himself as a jfk style democrat who wants to apply his economic expertise to state government. my career teaching folks about finances and wealth building has been all about being efficient with my time but also helping train others to
5:10 am
be official with their time so they can build their wealth to invest in people in education, in health care, mental health, education so that way the cost and burdens on government are actually lower. we then spend less money on medical on welfare and on social programs. and instead we can lower taxes in his first 60 days. paffrath promises to immediately focus on the state's homelessness crisis by working with the national guard to identify 80 facilities to be used as shelters. he also plans to craft an infrastructure package that includes working with the federal government to boost wildfire prevention. >> increase water access by building a pipeline from california to the mississippi river and speed up the legal immigration process. on top of housing homelessness wildfire prevention and state spending. >> paffrath says newsome has also failed on covid-19 while the democrats as he is vaccinated and believes in science based solutions fred says he does not agree with statewide pandemic-related mandates. i believe mandates are the responsibility of individual businesses or local
5:11 am
communities. i don't believe a governor can for the entire state. we should or should not have mandates with recall ballots now in the hands of voters. governor newsom has urged his supporters to leave question to blank and not pick a replacement candidate, but pat frat says it's nonsense and it's either really stupid or it's sabotage that they don't have a backup. and this is why we think towards the end of this election. it wouldn't be a surprise if they look for hail mary backup option democrat. >> and based on polling. we expect that to be right now. the democratic party endorses us in the back door when i speak with individual representatives from our federal government when i speak with senators or assembly, men and women. they say, look. we're voting no on recall, but we're voting on the best backup democrats because leaving a ballot like doesn't make sense that tells us regardless of the outcome of this race. he says he still plans to run for governor in 2022. >> at the state capitol. ashley zavala kron 4 news. tonight. you can see the

5:17 am
that northerly wind that's going to transport smoke from those fires to our north placing it right across the bay. we've been spared a little bit by marine layer right along the bay shore and the coast itself as you can see here, there is some green indicating good air quality for some of us closer to the coastline. pockets of moderate nevado as well as the inland east bay and then unhealthy stuff. the further north. you get in the bay right around clear lake ukiah. lot of that stuff is going to settle back down with this is marine layer burns off and you can expect an impact from less than ideal air quality yet again towards the afternoon. as for daytime highs, not a 4ot of change from yesterday. so it's another day with hazy sunshine 60's at the coast. 70's 80's right along the bay and then 80's to just very low 90's for inland areas san jose 82 today looking at low 90's in pleasanton livermore on up through danville. the concord oakland 73 degrees for your high while the lay who at 77 nearby vacaville at 96 today.

5:45 am
to poor air quality there is no safe exposure to wildfire small. i see pictures of people jogging wearing an n 95 mask. they're not understanding the picture. thit is not a healthy thing to do. even an n 95 mask or respirator mask to call it and 95 because it screens out 95% of the particulate matter. that's 2.5 microns or smaller. what means 5% is getting through. >> of course, as we've been telling you, when it comes to taking care of your lawns. they had the smoky skies or the pandemic. always check with your medical provider to get the best advice reporting here and want to create theresa kron 4 news. >> was like i struggle because i want to shut all the windows. but then we've got a little warm and we're like >> and we just just fans blowing in the house. yeah, but. with you could tell the smoke was getting so we're just talking off camera while that well, starts going on

5:47 am
picture does show this northerly wind continuing, though, and even if that's only sending smoke aloft. there is plenty of smoke still sitting right above the bay area that once marine layer burns off. we'll settle right back in with this. you can see that range of air quality. we have this morning areas where we have seen the return of that westerly breeze. looking at some good conditions but only temporarily pockets of moderate further inland and then further north in the bay as where you're seeing the poor to very poor stuff, something that we will see in pockets popping back up across the bay area into the latter part of the day today. now today's daytime highs 60's 70's for san francisco 60's at the coastline. 70's and 80's for our bayshore cities today. much like yesterday. daytime highs inland at our warmest. only in the low 90's. so really not a lot of change from yesterday. it's back to the hazy. sunshine. it's back to the warm but not too terribly warm of conditions. oakland 73 while danville all the way up at 93 degrees. the late show at 77 all vacaville at 96 today santa rosa through
5:48 am
center fell all in the 80's. a look ahead of next 7 days shows daytime highs not changing too terribly much in this forecast. we get a little cooler into the weekend and also see a low sliding through that could result in some lift in the transport out of smoke. at least temporarily resulting in times of improved air quality come the weekend reyna all. thanks for that. on this thursday morning. we're already seeing some action out there on your highways. let's start in the south bay. >> we're looking at an accident along one oh, one here. northbound want to win at oakland road in san jose. you can see we're already starting to see a delay, not much happening along 6.80, or are adjacent freeways. but as you can see, that accident is starting to slow down at least along one. oh, one of your wannacry northbound 6.80 adding nacio valley road, another traffic collision not causing much of a delay. it's still pretty early and we're still making good time along highway 4 heading into the city from the east bay under 12 minutes. you can see the meteor lights are still off at this hour. 5, 1880 moving

5:50 am
>> and now sickly yesterday's game between the a's and white a's first baseman seth brown hits that solo homer to left field that ties the game. but then the white sox, they took over after that. the a's just couldn't muster announced offense to keep the a's lost to the sox final score 3 to 2. they're going to try to avoid a sweep today first pitch at 11:10am. >> didn't go much better for the giants. they were facing the new york mets out of oracle park in this game actually went the 12th inning. former giant kevin miller who is now on the mets and he did a three-run home run that pretty much sealed the deal for the i just couldn't answer back at the bottom of the end. it. so that's how it went down giant slew 62 as they have the day off today. than the compact to of oakland. actually tomorrow night for the bay bridge series against the a's this weekend against the giants. and don't forget, kron. 4 is your bay area home for the raiders. and you can watch the silver and black taking on the la rams this saturday on kron 4.

>> and thanks for waking up with us. well, we can still breathe think things are going to get worse later. i'm darya folsom and i'm james fletcher. in fact, let's start the hour with that. a check of the air quality. the winds today so fans can get any better could morning jog a good morning. it doesn't look like today is going to be much of a better day, guys, we're still looking at a lot of smoke, at least sitting right above the bay. there are a couple of spots like closer to the coastline and along the bay itself where we do see some low clouds and marine layer pushing back in helping to clear up there at least temporarily back to good conditions in spots like san francisco at this moment. still moderate for inland areas and unhealthy for the very northern tier. the bay and a northerly winds will continue to push more and more smoke. at least our direction. so do expect another one with hazy sunshine and especially further inland. some impacts where you can actually smell that smoke and see a little bit ashfall 50's and 60's for current temps with concord at 60 degrees berkeley and san francisco each at 59 little bit cooler up in the north bay
6:00 am
