costa county, there is a red flag warning that starts at 5 o'clock tonight. there are some concerns about fire starting and also flex sort starts at 4, we're being asked to conserve power and cooler weather is on the way and our meteorologist mabrisa rodriguez has a lot on her plate right now. she has details now. lot to juggle out there this evening. just steam. but yeah, we're tracking imminent fire danger because of the threat of dry lightning. >> pop-up thunderstorms could actually spark and spread wildfires if any do form and like you mentioned, it's going to start at 5 o'clock tonight. so in a little bit more than an hour from now. and it's going to continue through friday morning. but we are seeing the storms off the coast over the pacific trying to make its way inland. but unfortunately. >> not going to be a rainmaker. that's why that dry lightning threat could actually form and spark fires because we're already extremely dry out there in the bay area. but after the storm passes, we're going to cool down. we're going to be a few degrees below average from coast to valleys downtown san francisco only warming up to
3:48 pm
66 degrees. half moon bay. also in the mid 60's. fortunately tracking calmer wind speeds, but still going to see that cool sea breeze influence bringing widespread low to mid 70's from brisbane into burlingame, millbrae and burlingame 73 degrees with mid 70's for san carlos and san mateo redwood city though 78 degrees as a cooling trend continues for a second day in the world wrap up your friday afternoon. forecast san jose 70 degrees with cupertino in the low 80's and livermore 84 degrees. so you're going to be about 5 degrees below average walnut creek 82 degrees with mid 70's. a piece for renda and richmond as well. 75 degrees in vallejo and benicia in the low 80's with low 80's for santa rosa and nevado 84 degrees. until we start to warm up dry out and clear out by this weekend. seasonal temperatures. so fortunately, just be no major heat waves heading our way, especially
3:49 pm
after tonight. we certainly will not need that. back to you. thank you so much for >> kron 4. is your local election headquarters. and we're just 5 days away from governor gavin newsom's recall elections. it is on tuesday. september 14th. so where do things stand right now as we go into this final push. joining us is our political analyst david mckeown. he is a political science professor at sonoma state university. thank you for joining us. going to be here. thank you for having me. of as of monday, more than 6 million people just over 27% of california's 22.3 million registered voters had turned in their ballots. do expect a lot more between now and tuesday. and what do you think of that numbers that high or low. >> you know, just tn about a month ago, the governor was under water. we weren't sure that this was going to be a heavy turnout election. those numbers that you just talked about from labor day and the latest numbers we have today about 30% of the vote. and that's a pretty big number so what 22 million potential voters out there in the
3:50 pm
universe. you take around 60% of that number. you're talking to more than 13 million people. now look, 61%, of voters turned out in 2003 when arnold schwarzenegger was on the ballot. if gavin newsom and his team can get a number higher than that. they are going to win on question one, meaning they'll be no because many more democrats will be coming out there in a good place and they're in a good place coming out of labor day. as we look at the last kind of for 5 days in the last push with the president coming on monday. all of that portends of wind at the back, if you will, pushing forward the noose and team. >> so as far as star power helping out the candidates including governor gavin newsom. he has an ad from former president barack obama. vice president kamala harris was here yesterday. joe biden is coming to a rally in long beach on monday. so he's got some big support behind him getting trying to get people to come out and vote no. >> who are the republicans supporting where where's president trump standing where is mitch mcconnell or kevin
3:51 pm
mccarthy or any of those big name republicans going to pick a candidate or stick their nose in this race. >> right. so we kind of pan out from this that the recall really as a warm-up for next year. and the part of that warm up for next year's testing different themes related to former president trump to trumpism not just in california but nationally but donald trump's not very popular here. so that certainly hurts someone like larry elder, who's going to get the most votes on question number 2, that means that many republicans are going to stay away. the difficulty of raising is certainly evident there. but you could see robo calls from former president trump over the weekend. but those aren't going to help if democrats had a secret weapon, if they have one. it's michelle obama. she won't be here. they don't need her superstar power. when you have the former president also on the air for them. and then the current president coming in. that means of the new some teams feeling pretty good. they want to knock it out of the park. then need better than 12 to 15 points if they win on question one, the no on recall by above 15 points
3:52 pm
that's a landslide. double digits is a solid win and anything less than that. is not keeping up if you will, with what we see in terms of registration and voter turnout so far. >> so election day is tuesday. people all registered california voters got their ballots so you could find it ppsomewhere near mail pile at home. fill it in the mailbox right now. you can also go to the polls on tuesday and cast your ballot. do you think that will have the results on tuesday night or that will be waiting and waiting and waiting to find out the results. yeah. good question. what one thing that's happened is republicans are holding on to their ballots and we didn't see that a generation ago. republicans voted early. that's completely changed. democrats now are casting their ballots early. so republicans come out to the polls. if you will, on tuesday. but if they think they're far behind and we haven't seen those big registration numbers even coming out with their voters. republicans and the no party preference voters it means that we likely are going to have strong trends on tuesday night despite what happens on
3:53 pm
wednesday morning when larry elder and his team, republicans file a series of lawsuits. they're going to do that. they're already game-planning for that. but nonetheless, we'll see some strong numbers on tuesday that by all the early accounts look like gavin newsom and the democrats are going to do very well out of this recall election. >> so really quick there. do you think governor gavin newsom is going to keep his job. yeah, it looks like he's going to keep his job. that will make him a national democratic power player, something the watch downstream and over the next couple of months into next year's 2022 midterm elections. david mckeown, a political science professor at sonoma state university, thank you so much for joining us here on kron, 4 news at 3. >> always great to get your insight. thank you very much. just be nice to see. and our coverage of the recall election continues on kron 4 dot com just scan this qr code on your screen right now. we'll take you straight to our web page review at the latest information on the candidates and details on how to cast your ballot. >> up next, several office offers were received, but only one lucky and we're going to presume very rich winner.
