his reactions are behind us are a couple of the entrances to the trails of the lime ridge space preserve in walnut creek, contra costa county fire department asked the city of walnut creek and the city of concord to close these open space areas for the labor day weekend. park rangers put up closure signs at all of the entrances to lime bridge shell rijn colonies open space areas in walnut creek and conquered the parks will be closed to the public through the labor day weekend. contra costa county firefighters are worried about fire danger in the resources it would take to rescue people on these trails in extreme heat during the summer. it's not uncommon for contra costa county fire to do 2 to 3 of these
12:32 pm
rescues a week. a lot of the rescues. we respond to our miles off the paved road where it takes multiple resources sometimes helicopters to perform these rescues. to reach these patients that are in these remote locations. or attempting to mitigate that risk by proactively closing some of these areas, people who hike and bike trails get it. i think it's a good idea. i think there are a lot of people out here that tend to do some crazy things that they probably shouldn't it's probably a good safety measure as well. you don't want people passing out on the trail. it is going to be what 107 on monday that gets pretty dangerous so probably better. absolutely yeah . safety first firefighters have closed these parks before during red flag warnings, but deputy chief mcallister and walnut creek officials told me this is the first time in recent memory they have shut down these open space areas specifically because of extreme heat. this community is not used to multiple days in a row of north of 100 degrees. these open space areas are
12:33 pm
scheduled to reopen on tuesday. september 6th. however contra costa county firefighters say if this heat continues, they may have to extend that closure. another day will have to wait and see. in one of the reasons ktvu news. reminder for you now, calyx so asking people to conserve energy between four and nine pm tonight to prevent power outages. that's the time of day when the power grid is most stressed with the production of solar energy declining, alyssa wants you to hold off on using major appliances such as dishwashers, washing machines and charging electric vehicles. they also ask that you set your thermometer to 78 degrees or higher. the entire bay area will be under excessive heat watch from saturday through tuesday. joining us now is brandon murdoch with the national weather service breed. thank you so much for joining us this afternoon. thank you for having me. so what concerns you the most about this incoming heatwave. we're gonna be dealing with well, it's the fact that we really had a mild summer so far , sometimes in spring. we also get a warm up before things start selling it with the marine layer. but this year, we really
12:34 pm
didn't have too much of a warm up and we haven't had as prolonged heat events is the one we're setting up for, so a lot of people might not be acclimated to this just yet, all right, and so that's a very important note here. we haven't had this in a while. so you have to be prepared for this. with the next few days, bringing the hottest weather of the year. are we on track to break any records? so our records are kind of in an interesting state, because a few years ago back in 2017, we had a stronger high pressure sitting right over california and that caused that day in san francisco, where it reached 106 degrees. that was an all time high record for san francisco. so uh, that also fell on labor day weekend. so the records they're going to be kind of few and far between, because that event really set the bar high. yeah just set the bar high. that was an extremely hot day. there. we normally by the way, cool off at night. um well, some areas not experienced a cool down and which areas would be affected by this. so the most concern for the areas overnight will be those higher elevations
12:35 pm
in the more interior portions. so think of north bay, east bay hills and mountains. we're going to be seeing a lot of areas only getting down into the seventies and then a few and eighties and we can't rule out a few high locations really getting up into the nineties for their lows, so this is going to be not a hole or a whole lot of relief expected overnight, so hot day, followed by a warm night, followed by another hot day that's going to be very stressful for the folks around the area. we know that the inland areas. definitely you know, usually always get warmer . but but what? what about the coastline areas which are generally cool and don't have to deal with heat, like what we're seeing are those areas. in for more abnormal heat than they're used to seeing. well it's a lot with the bay area. whether it de up for a high of 92. but then you have half moon bay just up the road a bit looking at highs getting into those seventies, so it just depends on where you are. the
12:36 pm
coasts are doing pretty well. but spreading across california up and down the state i mean southern california dealing with it just as bad as we are is a significant so this is again one of the first big warm ups we've had so far this year. as far as other heat events go, it's not uncommon to see this within september, but this is still very well, widespread. we're seeing this all the way into nevada as well as air is ona and those areas are actually going to see even more prolonged heat than what we're going to be seeing here in the bay area, so it's not uncommon for us to see this time of year, but compared to what we have been seeing so far this year. this is really setting the bar for the rest of the year. alright, and the president's you know the usual stuff that we see avoid outdoors during the day. stay hydrated. in a cool place. use air conditioning available cancel outdoor activities during the hottest period of the day. is there anything else that you add to that list of issues to watch for over the next few days? so again. this is very
12:37 pm
widespread. it goes all the way into the sack valley and then into the eastern portions of states. so if you're thinking that, oh, i'll go to the beach. becoming far from that, so it's going to be one of those situations where you might start seeing beach crowding as well. so don't make that your one plan to escape the heat. have a backup plan, i think is what i hear you saying they're all right. brad murdoch with the national weather service. thank you so much for writing your inside as we deal with the next couple of days as long heat wave that are all going to be dealing with. we appreciate it. yep, stay cool. now to oakland, where her mother and her nine year old son were hurt in a freeway shooting. ktvu crime reporter henry lee tells us a witness drove the young boy to the hospital. carter car shooting with at least six rounds fired on interstate 5 80 near fruit bill avenue in oakland. the victims a woman driving with her nine year old son were attacked just before 10 tuesday night. they ended up on city streets. mom got off on 35th avenue drove down run into
