cooler in the 50's you get on the east side of it into this valley in hure and temperatures are much warmer. you get a little compression heating. they go over the hills and then they come back down. into the valley in air compresses and warms. a little but on both sides, it's very dry, which is why we've had that red flag warning. so passing things along as another pocket up here around chico. you can see in this is kind of going to be part of our future because this is going to be filtered down to the north bay throughout the day. it looks like tomorrow for now. we're getting some green territory going to be on san francisco up to richmond and down to the peninsula little bit as well. but taking a look at what we just mentioned there. overnight. we expect some of that to smoke to make its way down to the north bay a little bit tomorrow as the winds start to it's dry, southwest 15 to 35 mile per hour winds. although gusts can be higher than that. forecast doesn't change for
those folks. a slight drop in temperatures thursday. friday were they can maybe some things will clear out a little bit 76 or so expected. then there's a live look at what it looks like. the golden gate bridge as or fog returns tonight might start to see some drizzle happened at the coast coming up. a little bit. of course, we'll take a look at your local forecast. jonathan. all right, dave, thank you so much. meanwhile, a bay area fire expert says that he is very concerned about the caldor fire's path. >> as it moves toward south lake tahoe. scott stevens is a professor of fire science at u c berkeley. he says while the state has done a better job of brush clearing and turning trees recently in tow simply will not be enough to stop flames from the caldor fire from seriously impacting the resort community. >> going to be sad. we're going to houses lost economies hit if it burns a big area of that part of the southern part of the basin. it could actually really have a detrimental quality to it quality. >> steven says he does not
