was wrong. see the color just to the was not right by movie. it was a really looks like yet. yeah, we had the fires and certainly had our issues with the smoke. >> around the bay area this year. again, with all those fires blazing. but now we're worried about fire starting as we've got some very unstable air beginning to move into the bay area right now. you see the fog over san francisco up above that, though, things have changed. we're seeing some of that subtropical moisture moving in right now. you see that all the areas shaded in red. they are also under red flag warnings, not just parts of the east bay in the north bay but continuing up toward the sierra nevada and look at all the lightning strikes we have already seen luckily so far nothing here in the bay area. but that may change just off the coastline beginning to see a cold front coming in. that's not really strong, but it's likely to enhance some of that moisture that's coming overhead right now. and that's the part that concerns us is that may get just enough instability atmosphere to give rise to some of thos big thunderstorms, those clouds and then you start to see those pop off outside right ered showers around the bay area.
but nothing as far as lightning is concerned. but there's a lot more moisture off the coastline and some of the cells are still building outside. so there's a possibility we could see some enhancement with that and look at all that moisture off the coastline. there are still plenty more to come and that will be rolling in overnight tonight. it's tomorrow morning. you see the batch of moisture, the main focus really in the north bay right now. but there's another batch that is down in the monterey bay. i think maybe some of that begins to slide a little further to the north and parts of the east bay as we take you through the night tonight. so yeah, we're going to be watching all night long. its kind in street. here's a high-resolution computer model. it is not picking up very well on how the moisture showing up right now. that doesn't give me a lot of confidence in this model going forward. but you'll notice overnight tonight here comes that cold front enhanced that moisture bringing a few pop-up showers with the possibility of some isolated fire store or thunderstorms out there. the possibility of fires tonight throughout the bay right, lawrence. still to come on kark 4 news at 5 smart glasses could be making a comeback. we're getting a look.

lawrence karnow is here. fingers crossed. i want the when you're part of it or not, the dry like we have seen some of the showers come down. but it's not enough really to wet the ground. that's the concern is you get some lightning and a lot of that moisture actually evaporates before it makes its way to the surface. but that lightning strike reaches the ground and start the fire. so we're watching that very closely for tonight. we'll be tracking it all night long. >> things are going to be changing rapidly from minute to minute. the clouds rolling in. now, some of the monsoon out there get wrapped up around that big ridge of high pressure that's been off the coastline. so red flag warnings these the places we're most worried about right now. i think specially in the that seems to be the place we're looking at most that moisture moving through east bay is also a concern. but we could see a lightning strike pop up just about anywhere in the bay area. so you've got high pressure over the 4 corner states around that. you've got that clockwise rotation that's picking up some of that subtropical moisture pushing back in the bay area. now that triggered this whole system is this approaching cold front off the coastline. this may be just
enough to get that lift in the atmosphere to create some more of those thunderstorms locally here in the bay area. so overnight tonight. yeah, kind of touch and go throughout the night tonight. don't be surprised if you see the flash of some lightning and watch out for the possibility. some fires getting started. not only here but around much of the state. and that's certainly what we don't want to see. look at all the thunderstorms popping up over the sierra nevada just to the east of fresno through yosemite. you see some of those lrttle bit fusther to the north. now as we're going to see more of that activity. all that moisture still off the coastline. you see that rain of showers still the come overnight to really. so she did more of the cold front that's beginning to move in that certain amplify some of this all of a sudden watch these cloud tops start to turn white. that means are getting pretty cold. an unstable out there right now. we do have a few scattered showers. most of that so far has been to our north back the cells kind of moving through right now just to the east of santa rosa. you see that cell that is pushing on through right now that bringing with it a chance. some scattered showers and start to build a little little bit when you start to see some red on tops of the cell. sometimes you're starting to
look at some thunderstorms trying to form at least anyway whether the forms are not that still remains uncertain. but there is that possibility and there's a lot more moisture off the coastline. so here we go through the night tonight. that moisture going to moving up to the bay area. so we're going to keep things very unsettled and possibly bringing the chance of showers and lightning strike or 2 throughout the night tonight. overnight tonight, the models trying to bring that cold front through about 1 o'clock to about 3 or 4 o'clock in the morning and then pushes in the east bay after that. looks like things are going to quiet down. but tonight really. through the now through about 6 o'clock in the morning. there's a chance of showers and a chance of thunderstorms. >> all right, lawrence, thank you for that. meantime, football is back. it is opening night in the nfl defending super bowl champs tom brady and the tampa bay they're facing off against the dallas cowboys in tampa right now. the score is bucs are up 7. it's still the 1st quarter.
