9:12 pm
super dry because of the drought. at least one building was destroyed and the fire is just 10% contained. >> all right to meteorologist lawrence karnow joining us now. i mean, we're dealing with this hot weather there in the inland areas i weather. and then when you get the wind involved recipe for disaster really is. i mean, they're just so much material to burn and that we have the drought conditions. so it's extremely dry out there. we've had temperatures recently 90's triple digits into the foothills of the sierra nevada winds. >> weather coming up on the south. and that's a different category here. and that's probably good news for firefighters is pushing the fire a little more of a northerly direction. you can see the yuba river year lease the norfolk just to the south. you get the southern folk here in between. but we've got the fire burning winds blowing 14 to 16 miles per hour. but i think we're going to see a good influx of some nice moisture in the atmosphere. that means a strong onshore push. that means it's going to come to suppress the fire that will help firefighters going to have a little slow down the movement of that fire. as long as those winds starts are well whipping once again, we are
9:13 pm
seeing a pretty significant on shore breeze, though, right now. we've got some 20 mile an hour. plus winds in the san francisco all the way to 30 in the fairfield. so that on shore breeze continues and taking that nice marine air right to the delta into the sacramento valley. in fact, i think we're going to see some fog actually make its way all the way into the central valley overnight tonight and tomorrow morning. get a good sense of it here. you can see the arrows here. that's that on shore breeze being picked up models here saying the winds well into the interior of california, bringing finally some heat relief from them and a higher moisture content. so not only here, but around much of the state you see along the coastline, you're starting to see that marine a really deep and even by several 100 feet today and will deepen even more so for tonight, allowing it to move further and further on shore. so good news there. the fog kind of kept out into sfo, right? no. now no delays being reported. there at the time. but we are expecting as we head through the next couple of days. temperatures again going to take a hit today. we dropped a good 11, even 30 degrees cooler places like
9:14 pm
livermore. 12 degrees cooler for highs today in santa rosa. so numbers really backing off from the hot temperatures just a couple of days ago. we're not talking 90's anymore. low 80's, the warmest spots in livermore and concord, 80 in santa rosa, 60 in san francisco. 66 in oakland and 74 degrees in san jose. well, the big pattern change now as high pressure begins to move further to the east that's allowing this trough of low pressure kind of carve itself out along the west coast that since the deep in the marine layer ushers in some cooler temperatures and of course, fog and low clouds kind of camp along the coastline. so that being said, those clouds, some cooler numbers again for tomorrow afternoon. highs instead of the 80's tomorrow. i think most places looking at upper 70's, it will be warm. but these numbers really coming down from just a couple days ago. coast side, grab your jacket. it will be cool and foggy there all day long temperatures generally the 50's low 60's out toward the beaches. expect another weak system to rolling toward the coastline over the weekend. that will cool even further. partly cloudy skies. a little bit warmer on the 4th of july, lawrence.
