5:06 am
in the fire zone. daniel said he hopes for the best but is cautioning against any idea of a quick result. >> we are hoping that the winds will die down just a little bit and we will continue to see cooler temperatures and we will be able to make some progress to get ahead of this fire. but as we've seen this fire after fire, it's taking days and days and days of hard, tireless work to try to slow down a fire like this. so there may be more communities in the near future and that's where we will be working with the sheriff's department to get as much notice to those residents as we can if the fire does change direction or runs toward a different community. >> katie will be live at en evacuation center at the top of our 6:00 hour. now here is a list of all the areas under a mandatory evacuation order right now. bottle rock and high valley road, highway 175 in cobb, 29 at bugs lane in calistoga, and napa county, highway 29 at highway 53

>> it will take a little time for the entire bay area to feel the effect of an area of low pressure that will cool us down significantly in the next couple days. but starting out with the fire conditions up in the north where temperatures are still on the warm side in the 60s. but we are looking at relative humidity coming up due to all the cloud cover. and right now winds are on the light side. but they will continue to shift around and we will see them out of the south through the weather system in the central area of california. unfortunately we will have some of these varying shift being winds. and you will notice throughout the latter part of the evening, as well. but still we are looking at some cloud cover this morning and also some light raindrops. here's a look at live doppler 7hd. the focus of some of the heavier rain has been from cobb mountain to middleton with anywhere from .01 to .07. that's good news. not all is reaching the ground. we are continuing to watch this as this kind of miscellaneous else out throughout the morning

5:22 am
certainly not cool. we will wait in the 24 hours or so until another area of low pressure pushes this one out and brings more dramatic cooling. so throughout the day today, noon, notice with eve got some clearing. so some sun is on the way for the afternoon. and then into your monday, more cloud cover and more shower chances. but still higher elevations looking more likely to see a little bit of rainfall. so in the south bay 84. san jose 81 in milpitas. temperatures right around average today. 77 redwood city, palo alto 60 and pacifica down town look for about 64 today. daly city more cloud cover newspaper the north bay but toward the fire area numbers are warm in the 80s to 90s cloverdale. 78 sonoma, and 78 fremont, 77 union city. you head inhand and we are looking at low 80s pleasanton. a little more sun and we could be pushed into the upper 80s in spots. looking forward to the next 24 to 48 hours where the

again this, fire has burned 25,000 acres after breaking out early yesterday afternoon. mandatory evacuations are in place throughout lake county. portions of northbound highway 29 are closed right outside of calistoga. they may reopen by noon. the fire and the resulting evacuations caused a massive traffic jam on highway 29. lieutenant doug pittman of the marin county sheriff's office spoke to us by phone about what he saw. >> safe to say there were thousands of cars driving south getting away from the area. how many, with he will probably never know. we have a lot of people up here for the weekend and tourists and residents, homeowners alike. all of them are being asked to leash. it's a chaotic situations. the roads themselves aren't conducive to massive evacuation at anytime so that's probably one of the biggest difficulties for us. >> and again, several portions of highway 29 remain closed. the chp is urging drivers to
5:32 am
simply avoid that area. four firefighters, among the first on the scene, they need today be rescued after being trapped by the flames. they belonged to a helicopter crew that gets flown into the most dangerous areas to try to stop the flames. all suffered second degree burns. these events don't occur often so when they do, we go in and investigate, try to figure out exactly what happened, especially in this situation. we can create a situation or training so it will never occur again. >> when the fire is on you, and you have to make life-or-death situations, it's very traumatic to the firefighters. >> medics rushed all four injured firefighters to uc david medical center in sacramento. other firefighters stopping by that trauma center near the state tap follow to check on -- capitol to check on the firefighters and their families. >> we are two towns away from
