5:38 pm
as tomorrow. that will keep the temperatures from getting too warm. we'll keep the numbers rather mild around the bay area for tomorrow and some of the high level clouds likely move across our skies as well. but that system falls apart as we get into friday. high pressure starts to take over our temperatures really begin to warm up back over the weekend public, some 80's are going to be calm and another weak system comes through on monday. but you see just kind of fall apart there and then long range forecast models a little bit unsettled. but looks like we'll keep things mostly dry, at least for the next 7 days and maybe beyond that. temperatures outside right now. we've got a lot of 50's and some 60's outside still comfortable. 68 in santa rosa. 68 in concord. 56 degrees in san francisco by tomorrow. you look at the numbers in the 50's in the san francisco breezy again along the coastline and cool out toward the beaches inside the bay start to warm things up but partly cloudy skies. 63 degrees in redwood city. 64 mount view. 66 in cupertino. 65 in saratoga. mild temperatures inland as well. probably nobody going to stick out in the 70's by tomorrow afternoon to get close. you

5:44 pm
5:45 pm
>> popping season is here. and our california coastline is
5:46 pm
filled with young sea lions and seals and they are just so adorable. well, most will be able to go of healthy and on their own. some end up needing assistance this year, the marine mammal center says the problem of people interacting with the animals on the beaches is driving up the number of pumps that they've got to take care of. kron four's noelle bellow explains. >> that's the sound of feeding time. it happened several times a day at the marine mammal center home to elephant seals harbor seals and california sea lions who need a little extra care rescue. any sick or injured marine mammal within 600 miles of california coast. and you see the most number of patients this time of year. adam ratner has worked at the center for over a decade. >> he's noticed a shift in recent years as their patient numbers continue to climb. right now, what we're se-ing is a lot more animals coming in due to human interaction. >> unfortunately, people are
5:47 pm
trying to help and a lot of cases, but they're getting too close to these animals and they can separate them center. nestled in the marin, headlands says negative human interaction with the pups as a growing problem in the bay area. specifically visitors to san mateo marin and sonoma county coast lines are getting too close for comfort. both really fortunate to have lots of wild seals and sea lions that share a shorter. but it also just means we have to take a little extra effort to make sure that we're giving them the space they need while enjoying the beaches ourselves. right now is the height of pupping season. the marine mammal center is caring for about 130 patients. that means they're using about 1000 pounds of sustainably caught herring. is feeding stay. >> we go through a lot of ratner says elephant seal pups typically come into the center about 200 pounds underweight. they eat at least 3 times a day. many working their way up from a fish eating 5 pounds of herring. each the feedings are
5:48 pm
led by vets and carried out by volunteers by looking so cute, cuddly volunteers never get to play. so even though we have to be around these animals to help better want to minimize the level of interaction with them. and that way they keep all those wild in staying just as the experts keep their distance inside the center. they want you to keep yours out on the short ci and spend a fair amount of time up on beaches. so just seeing in out of water doesn't mean it sick. >> if you see any cuts, scratches or people around it are dogs off leash. that could be a sign that they might have some trauma. so that's why you just give us a call. we can send a team of trained experts out there of do they need help? were they just resting and make sure that they get on the right path to recovery. pupping season ends in june. but the center rescues mammals in need all year round. in sausalito. >> bellow from 4 games. >> them are in mammal center is run entirely with donations
5:49 pm
and because of inflation, the cost of the fish, they use for feed has essentially doubled over the last year. so right now there is a family that is matching donations to the center up to $5,000. you can head to kron 4 dot com to find out the ways that you can help. we continue to follow breaking news tonight. this is coming out of southern california. a brush fire. this is burning in orange county. and you can look at these intense flames. this is a live picture and the sick. the thick smoke pouring from this community. this is in laguna hills. homes have burned. we don't know the number yet. >> the sheriff's department has called for residents there to immediately evacuate. if they haven't already some homes, as you see are currently up in flames. they're now calling this the brush fire or no, excuse me, it is a brush fire. now they're calling it the coastal fire that just gave it a name just a few minutes ago broke out about 2.45 this afternoon. >> when crews arrived to about
5:50 pm
3 o'clock. they say the fire was at that point. only 3 acres. so it has really grown in size again. it is now 150 acres according to the weather service, orange county is expected to have some light wind gusts reaching about 25 miles an hour. and our chief meteorologist lawrence karnow is here with us again. just what we don't want to hear know. i know here we are getting into the fire season again and now you're seeing southern california starting to see those winds gusting around. >> yeah, potentially some very strong gusts out 23 miles an hour right now. but you see some from that video. you get around some of these areas. you got mount, some kenyans areas that can really focus the winds and make them that much stronger. i think that's what we're seeing in around the fire. now, here's the good news. i think overnight tonight the winds are going to begin to switch becoming more of an offshore wind and that will likely, mean, that the fire will burn back in on itself. that tends to slow the fire a much more see it right here as we take to the night tonight. so as we head into
5:51 pm
the evening hours, selling those winds are going to back off quite a bit. you can see all the way down to 4 miles an hour and start to move offshore as we head in toward midnight tonight for firefighters are going to get a little help from the weather a little bit later on. the sea breeze going to continue to blow strongly for at least the next 2 hours until the sun setting up the sun sets. you started that energy into the winds start to calm down. we're also looking at a significant sea breeze out there right now. you can see that on shore wind 20, some 30 mile an hour gusts out there right now, filling in right to the delta 2. we'll see more of that. it is been really windy. us is march around the bay area this year. but here we are. we've got another cold front off the coastline. that one getting a little bit closer. not going to get here, though, not to bring any rain. so, yeah, we're going to keep things nice. i think just a few more clouds going to be moving across our skies tomorrow and the sea breeze will return once again in the afternoon. temperatures outside. yes, starting to warm up a little bit today. 68 degrees. and brett, what it is? 58 rather cool into fremont 65 in san jose and pleasant. 65 also in napa and
5:52 pm
66 degrees and save lena. there's a system off the coastline that one right there not going to quite get here. high pressure will start to build in. i think that about site energy just a little further to the north. so tomorrow we'll call partly cloudy and on the mild side outside and looks like we'll see some of those clouds continue to filter on and off to our skies through the morning and then into the afternoon tomorrow. so you'll see those clouds from time to time up and knock down the temperatures just a little bit. we may pull back on the temperatures slightly by tomorrow afternoon plan. a lot of 50's and some 60's but still comfortable still running below the average for this time of year. that all changes over the next few days. we get to friday. get ready for the weekend. we start talking about temperatures moving well into the 80's on saturday. cooling down a few clouds on sunday. >> all right, lauren, thank you. another massive u.s. aid package could be on the way to ukraine. soon the house approved 40 billion dollars for that country. now the measure goes to the u.s. senate for a vote where leader chuck schumer is promising quick action, strong bipartisan support is where, as we know and it is not
