pastries. volunteers are encouraged to bring their own cleaning products from home. it's sponsored by the aquarium at the bay and america's cup healthy oceans project. >> a good day to get out there, lisa. it's going to be nice. >> yes. we have light winds at the surface but breezy winds in the higher elevations and that's what's causing the critical fire weather above 1,000 feet. here's a look from the sutra camera. great visibility looking toward the head lands where it's dryer up in napa with 23% humidity and the air temperatures in the upper 60s. thanks for the shout-outs on twitter as we are looking at changing conditions as a breeze develops above 1,000 feet. we are looking at live doppler 7hd. the radar sweep on top of mount saint helena. you can see not much going on here but always checking for you and we are certainly looking at the warm conditions and the breezy conditions, especially through the morning hours. the red flag is in effect for
6:48 am
above 1,000 feet until 11:00 this morning. root now the winds in the 20 to 30 mile-an-hour range and they will increasingly drop the relative humidity. right now 27% in livermore. by the afternoon we are looking in the teens and single digits but the north win at six. light end up this past hour. so down around sea level things are quite calm but we are looking at the win gaining speed as they descend from the 1,000-foot level. so it is pretty dry out there and will get drier. 07 livermore, 67 antioch with 65 in napa this morning. a cool 50 half moon bay. so we will be looking at numbers this morning considerably warmer. 23 degrees warmer in napa this morning. you really feel it trying to get that cool air in. you know it's going to be a scorcher today in the livermore valley with numbers jumping up into the 90s. we won't see any relief in our east bay for at least two days,
6:49 am
possibly three where that sea breeze will stay close to the coast the next couple of das and pretty much absent though today. so the red flag warning for the higher elevations, warm to hot. then we will look for the cooler conditions mainly on tuesday and wednesday. aings bit of relief coastside tomorrow. the fire danger continues here. the elevated danger for the sacramento valley and the strait and delta. the humidity has certainly been a problem. we will look for that to continue to be a factor as a strong ridge of high pressure holds on today and only begins to weaken late tomorrow. so with the breezy conditions once again, we will look for the numbers to warm up quickly today. in fact, we are already in the 70s in our east bay valleys so the high, strong high. the clockwise flow around allows for the offshore winds, the compressional heat and that dries out things even more so.
6:50 am
the relative humidity at the coast not bad but with the lack after sea breeze today it will be quite mild. big sur 82 degrees, 77 los angeles and yosemite at 84 today, locking at 70 in tahoe. only in the 20s right now. numbers coming up up, 78 and 85 oakland with 88 in san jose. look for mid-80s in santa cruz and 74 at monterey, 90s in gilroy. we will look for the warming to continue inland with a sea breeze tomorrow. a little break comes our way with cooling, minor cooling tuesday and wednesday and thursday we start to see another high bring us an offshore flow by friday and saturday. it will be a hot one out there. >> all right. thank you, lisa. this weekend a special park in marin has a new lease on life. fund raising helping save china camp state park near san rafael. wayne freedman tells us it's a lot more than a recreational

area [clock ticking] >> for one year, the ticking of this clock has had an ominous symbolic valley. it tells the story of this snack bar, where time seems to standstill, this state park. >> it looked like an end. there wasn't any chance of trying to save this. >> frank kwan is as much a part of china camp state park as the buildings. he's the last resident what used to be a fishing village of 500 people. a man who left just once to fight in world war ii. his family has occupied this same house in the park since 1890. the state owns it along with the snack bar he runs just outside the window. imagine frank's concern learn china camp would close to save 340,000 annual dollars from california's budget. >> where would you have gone?
6:52 am
>> that's a good question really. >> one that now appears to have a happy ending in sight thanks to a community that wouldn't give up. >> i wanted to do something to save china camp but i didn't know what i was getting into. >> ernest chung first fell in love with china camp's 1500 acres because of it's mountain biking trails. the beauty behind the location , the locks and keys inspired him to form the friends of china champ. they are 800 strong now, including steve deeing. >> i think it says our government is failing us and i think it also says we as citizens need to mac our voices heard. >> even if the friends of china camp raise the $250,000 they need to keep it open for two -- for twelve months, the malts isn't over, it is only beginning. they plan to sell memberships and charge people to use the park but any way you look at it it's a unique and somewhat risky model for running a state park. >> we need to make sure that people don't come in and turn it into a party place and ruin it for the rest of the community. [clock ticking]
6:53 am
>> with a month to go before the state's deadline, the friends of china camp appear to have raised most of the money they need to run this place themselves. it's a minor miracle in these hard times, even for a well -- a wealthy county. >> the morale imperative is that parks are a right in a sense. this is open place that people have a right to enjoy. if the government, for whatever reason, can't at least for a while operate these parks, fulfill that need, we are willing to step up to do it. >> there is no person more happy or relieved about that than frank kwan. >> i think we are over the hill now. you are going to see us after july 1.
