good morning, everyone. we are following breaking news in contra costa county. cal fire says firefighters are at the scene of multiple vegetation fires in clayton. here is a picture from mark. we just spoke with him over the phone a few minutes ago, and you can see the flames from just across the street. cal fire is estimating 500 acres are burning on the north side of marsh creek road just west of brentwood. now, this is a picture -- >> we were sleeping and the dog woke us up crying. i, you know, took the dog outside and then you could totally smell just that heavy smell of smoke. >> uh-huh. >> and i kind of looked up, and

over the horizon you could just see the orange glow. so it is -- it is too close. it is kind of sporadic farmland, but we do have neighbors. and, actually, as i was outside with the dog and we were kind of looking at the glow, our neighbor drove by right then on his truck and kind of yesterday out the window, we got a fire pretty near. and so my husband actually went with him to go check on the livestock, make sure everything is okay. the fire has reached the neighbor's cow pond. right now we are just waiting for directions from the authorities basically. i did receive an alert on the cell, saying there's a shelter in place in clayton. as of yet there's no evacuation. so we're just indoors, waiting. we have everything ready though if we need to evacuate and if we need to get the animals out.
6:42 am
those will be my only concerns. there's actually been a couple of fires in this area since we lived here. we've been here for about going on four years. i do know the firefighters are working very hard. they're already there on the other side of it and they do have the bulldozers going. so they are -- they are working on it. >> and that was nita. i spoke with her earlier this morning, and she says that she's just kind of waiting to see. she's packed up and ready to go if she does, indeed, have to leave, but right now firefighters are asking people in clayton to stay inside, to close their windows and doors. we were also able to speak with mark, and he told us that he lives in the mobile home park on marsh creek road and he has been given the all clear to return to his home along with everyone in that community. they had to be evacuated, he said, around 4:30 this morning. we will give you the latest on that as soon as we get that, but firefighters working to control the fire in contra costa county. in the south bay lords,

6:52 am
that helps, of course, with the fire danger. today it is elevated. sutro tower camera, salesforce tower buried in the low cloud deck. here is live doppler 7, and the clouds are already scattered. as we look at clayton where the vegetation fires are, we are looking at 60 degrees, the south wind with a wind gust of 8 miles per hour. winds in and around that area about 15 miles per hour as that gusts by the delta. elsewhere light, out of the south. we go up to about 1,000 feet and they're offshore and a little gustier around mount tam. we will continue to see the winds pick up a little bit throughout the afternoon and we will see the low cloud deck disappear almost totally but not entirely at the shoreline. so partly cloudy, we will call it, from half moon bay to pacifical. 60 in redwood city. 61 in san jose. this is a view of san rafael, marin county, partly cloudy skies. right now a lot of sun and warn again for much of marin. 63 in concord and 67 in livermore. compared to yesterday at this time, we are up around two
6:53 am
degrees around concord, clayton, six degrees warmer in napa. you get the idea. it is going to be a warmer day today, about four degrees above average in san jose, 86. 85 for you in santa clara. sunnyvale, mid 80s. look for low 80s from redwood city to palo alto. as you get to the coast, cloud cover. 69 in the north bay, 88 for you. pretty warm for sonoma. 93 in calistoga. mild to warm from oakland, 77, but you get towards union city and you are warming up, through the 80s. fremont, 82. inland we have the low 90s from san ramon to walnut creek, but you head over towards pittsburg and antioch and it is hot, in the mid 90s. keep that in mind today. lots of water, don't stay in the sun. low cloud and fog pushing into the bay tonight, making it to about oakland. as we go through the next several days our air conditioner will be with us.
6:54 am
mother nature allowing for the low clouds and fog to get a little taller and deeper in the days ahead. today, 60s to 90s. tomorrow, a stronger sea breeze. monday, numbers begin to come down around the bay, and then you download our accuweather app and we will be cool with breezy winds right on through the rest of the week. so today, certainly warm out there. you see what that does. i mean it is 60 degrees in clayton but it doesn't matter, it is dry out there.
