>>so it's really exciting i can we do back in my house and raise my kids in this neighborhood. >>in santa rosa michelle kingston kron 4 news. >>so at least right now california is not burning up with wildfires at least not as much as it has in recent years and of course as very good news for lonnie wong tells us so we've seen some terrifyingly destructive and deadly wildfires in the last couple of years. but the worst of those fires typically happen a little bit later on toward the fall. >>this almost seems normal during the summer months in light of what's happened in recent years, deadly wild land fires that seemed to progressively said wreckers for the number of buildings destroyed and lives lost. but so far this year less than 25,000 acres have burned to date as of yesterday. scene i'm period last year. there was a record snow pack during the winter and there were breaks between heat waves this summer compared to 2017 when fires ravage napa sonoma and
8:32 pm
lake counties. we went into consistent 100 degree weather and that same up and down but consistent above a 100 degrees for weeks on and one possible reason for fuel wild land fires. so far this year, california's vegetation has had more time to absorb moisture from heavy winter storms. despite a wet winter in 2017 california was coming out of a 5 year drought that prevented vegetation from rehydrating more quickly. state fire officials would feel better if there were several more years of wet winters to bring feel was to content back up. cal fire still contends with around 300 fires every week but most of them have burned grass itead of timber size of the fires are very low. this is no time to relax the devastating tubs and atlas fires in napa and santa rosa didn't start until early october. the catastrophic thomas fire that burned through santa monica and then counties didn't start until the beginning of the summer warmer temperatures are forecast in the near future
8:33 pm
and santa ana winds are expected this fall in southern california. the potential is still there we cannot be complacent we can enjoy the beautiful weather. but we still have the potential is a major fires with about 2 this year. we definitely can not be complacent we want to find out what's happening with the winds right now. >>you know it's this time of year is usually the most beautiful time of the year. we start to see the clearing of the fog we get those offshore winds. but it's also the time that the fire danger is also the highest and we're going to see that only increase here through september and early october really intel. we get that nice rain of the fall season now we're going to see more wins this more of a sea breeze though, but it's going to be little gusty in spots naked the sea breeze of course winds coming off the water and that means it's a lot more moist so fire danger generally lower even though there are some gusty winds. not as bad usually those offshore winds but tomorrow afternoon certainly some 20 some 30 mile an hour gusts along the
8:34 pm
coastline to see some stronger winds in the san francisco blustery in spots of times by tomorrow afternoon and tomorrow evening, but by day a lot of sunshine coming our way up in the 70's around much of the bay area, some 80's in the san francisco are in the san jose and then as we get to the pacific. well we've got a storm brewing out there how about that we've got this system that will likely bring some rain up in the pacific northwest you see moving all right there by wednesday afternoon that rain drifting all the way down maybe clipping just northern california watch happens. it runs right near ridge of high pressure fades away as it moves on by so that ridge going to take over that'll send our temperatures soaring here in the bay area getting hot again and i think these numbers are going to stick around for a while in fact a high pressure going to build in here these next 2 days and as we get the weekend. we've got some hotter weather coming our way tomorrow. i think some mid-nineties lot of spots inland. those blustery a westerly winds will keep temperatures cooler in the 60's along the coastline, and them or flirt with triple digits getting very hot. saturday and sunday at least in the valleys. >>a new study shows california red flag law is on gun the

8:36 pm
responsible for the shootings not. >>but there's a certain logic to the idea that if someone is threatening violence and firearms are part of the threat. if you remove the firearms from the situation. the threat is lessened. >>gun rights advocates have long fought against red flag orders saying they violate second amendment rights and the other laws in the books are enough prevention that is guaranteed sam press, but gun owners of california doubts the value of the study saying the sample size wasn't large enough. he also says there's no way to account for other factors that may have prevented this pilot they don't want to put any and purses on studying. >>the subjects the people that are willing to commit these mass. murders and until they do they're going to continue to happen state lawmakers are now considering several bills that would expand california's red flag law. >>when a says his research backs up these efforts particularly a bill that would expand who can report at risk individuals allowing teachers employers and co-workers to
