5:00 am
>> fromethe area's local news station. you're watching the kron. 4 morning news far. >> good morning. and thanks for waking up with us to just leave. okay and me. >> yeah. as promised it was pretty toasty yesterday, especially for our inland valleys. i know in my neck of the woods, we did get up over 100 as john had predicted and did well. i was out on the water and it said 80 on that. so i mean, i know like san francisco proper, probably so, yeah. good morning, john. yes, san francisco couple neighborhoods did tap into the low 80's. we've got 107 in livermore yesterday, which was a record broken. so even if you were in the 80's, you are dodging the worst of the heat. that's for sure. this is your view outside right now, the low gray sitting in san francisco. we have a mix of advisories today. and part of that has to do with the fog at the coastline and the heat inland. we also have some thunderstorms building across parts of the region. now, these will be far and few
5:01 am
between. but we do have a couple of isolated showers right now in the south bay through sunnyvale and mountain view even had a lightning strike in eastern solano county earlier we have some visibility issues near the coastline. the that's the dense fog advisory. while another heat advisory returns for solano county today. right now, temperatures are mostly in the 50's to 60's, although a couple of spots like san jose double in livermore, brentwood in fairfield never left the 70's last night. so stay pretty warm for a few areas during our evening hours. i'll be breaking down exactly what today's he looks like. still in the rest of your forecast right now. don, thank you for that. ok, if you are traveling into the city this morning, about 7 minutes for your drive. >> as you're heading from the maze, 2, that fremont street exit this morning on the way to work. i got a flat tire. so this is just a warning to everybody. check your tires before you leave your house this morning. you want to run into those delays. san mateo bridge, 12 to one o one heading across towards the peninsula. let's check on the
5:02 am
richmond center fell bridge 8 minutes tolls to one o one in the south bay traveling up along one o one. a 27 minute ride. 85 to menlo park darya. james, back to you. thank you. reyna happening today, a statewide flex alert is issued because of that weather. and not surprisingly, this means of course, you need to cut down on the amount of electricity use, especially during peak hours. >> with kron four's will tran. he's standing by live in the east bay at the p g any station with more on what we need to jacket at this early well. >> no jacket because right now it's 74 degrees. livermore doesn't have to do a lot of wiggling because it's already sky high. as far as i'm concerned with the temperature. but they do expect it to be 98 degrees in livermore before it's all said and done. you can see those pg any trucks right behind me. they might have to be dispatched. not sure how they turn off the power, they are prepared to turn off the power annually or just a flip of the
5:03 am
switch. if we all use too much power because they saw what happened yesterday strangely enough yesterday was not a flex alert, even though it's supposed to be hotter yesterday. >> then it is today by a few degrees. but they saw enough yesterday to go ahead and say. >> you've been put on notice if we all collectively used too much power, we could be facing rolling blackouts. there is a little bit of good news guys in the fact that if you need to use major appliances, if you have to do cooking laundry dishwasher, your ac by all means fire up your ac. now because we're not in the window for the possible flex alert and the rolling blackouts, they say cool your house as much as you possibly can. in fact, set your a c right now to 72 degrees. get cool. try to open up your doors in their early morning hours to get that nice morning, erin. and then close the door close. the drapes peak has come. 4 o'clock. that's when the flex alert
5:04 am
begins. take a look at your screen. we want to pass along some tips to you. i've already mentioned that right now is the window of opportunity use all the major appliances that you need for cooking and laundry after that, whether telling you to change your thermostat from 72 to 78 degrees that way won't kick on. so that won't put the load on the power grid. don't use major appliances. and by all means turn off any lights that you're not using. so we have been put on notice and the bottom line is, regardless of all this true story, guys, i got my pg and pg e bill yesterday. never mind flex alert. i'm turning off the power because i saw the bill. so that should be a motivator as well. but the bottom line is you don't need a jacket this morning because it's another uncomfortable day. and let me show you it's already 74 degrees in livermore. >> all right. with guns out, he likes to say will. all
5:05 am
right. good advice of a start, the dishwasher now. that's what i did because these hot temperatures are continuing. >> and your morning commute may be impacted because the heat bart is taking extra safety precautions on the rails to keep them from overheating. this is a problem that could lead to a derailment. that's what they want to prevent. kron four's terisa stasio has a look. >> it is this part. officials say that they are hoping to avoid a train derailment back in june on a concord bound train. hot temperatures were the cause on tuesday as temperatures climb past 100 and parts of the east bay train slowed to a maximum of 44 miles an hour. a bart spokesperson says that the slowdown could add about 10 minutes to a commute. >> it was a bit slower and they made an announcement that rain, i think are and that they were down the trains on purpose stream out there. cold says he appreciates the precautionary measures overall better for
5:06 am
>> the nevada range tonight i've noticed that and this definitely stopping a lot more. so that was something i've never seen it like. usually it starts maybe a little bit, but it didn't stop as much. think that's better going off the yeah, i'm like i'd rather do that and get home safely in. >> have to worry about that. specifically. bart officials say the trains will be slowed between lafayette and bay point and between bayfair in san leandro to the dublin pleasanton stopped. >> and that was theresa stasi reporting for us. no word yet from officials if they plan to do the same thing today, james. well, for your health is important to stay safe and know the signs of heat related illnesses. so we wanted to take a look at the differences between heat exhaustion and heat stroke. and there is a difference. according to the cdc, someone who's experiencing heat exhaustion will begin to feel dizzy thursday may experience some heavy sweating and nausea and feel overall week. the cdc
5:07 am
says those symptoms can get worse and that is what will lead heat stroke, which is what we have here depicted on the right hand side associated symptoms with that confusion, dizziness. as you can see, you can become unconscious as well. in this case, it's important for somebody to call 9-1-1. if you see somebody exhibiting symptoms of either heat exhaustion and heat stroke. you want to make sure they stay cooler if they can stay hydrated, that help avoid either of these heat related illnesses and you can stay connected with kron 4 for the very latest weather conditions and will help you get through this short little heat wave scan the qr code on the screen. that will take you to our website where we've got all the the information you need from current conditions to the various watches and warnings to your 7 day forecast. you can see when these temperatures will start coming down. >> thank you and 5, 0, 7. we want to change gears now from the heat and talk about the latest with alexis game. her family is continuing to try to get justice for her murder. they're going to meet with the contra costa county district attorney today and asked da to
