ensure that the fire has generated somewhat of a breeze. and, that looks to be the line that they are standing right there. and, the smoke is blowing away. and, it is going southeast. and you can see that retardant. they will probably make another sweep there. >> and it shows you how important that is. >> exactly. >> that's true. >> so, we have a lot going on. the temperatures are getting very hot. mother nature is not providing much of a breeze. but, this looks like it has kind of burned itself out. and, the smoke is moving away. that's good news. we do have really hot conditions. 94, it's going to get at least 296 or 97. the humidity is blown dry -- to 96, or 97. the humidity is bone dry.
some of this for morgan hill, they had a good comments. and, it flares up at about 1220 best 12:20 pm. but look at the temperatures, it is hot. and, this is pretty warm as well. 93 scotts valley, almost 90 for other locations. and, fighting very tough conditions. i think it will tomorrow. there is a north wind, but it has turned westerly. so signs of that sea breeze coming in is just flying through the golden break. and, yet there is a wet -- a lot of resentments. and, the fog is filling in, some areas are really cold. i've seen some upper 50s. and, they are stockton. and, water temperatures came up a little bit but they are going
to go down. and, 66 happened. and, 80s and 90s, very warm conditions. most locations are running a few degrees cooler. not anywhere around five to grip -- 5 to 10 degrees cooler. and, the fog is sweeping down the coast. very shallow. and, this will help the firefighters big ten tomorrow. and, at least we are losing that easterly breeze. in the westerly breeze hasn't kicked in. 60s, 90s, when more hot day in land. but coastal locations are cooling-off period and santa cruz is still going for 84 today. it's not there yet but it will be. and temperatures will take the plunge if you will tomorrow and, after that not only are we talking about cooler conditions that we may have to talk about our first reign of the season. and, certainly in the north bay.
here is one of our tankers. >> and cost so the former jetliner converted into that firefighting machine. >> and, 12,000 gallons of water. and, it is now inbound. >> and a lot of people walked those lines. and, when we get over to the fire zone. and, we are starting to stretch a little bit. and, you can see, as it makes its way towards the fire cannot forget that there is an offer a lot of smoke rising from the mound. and a lot of people are concerned about their homes at this point only one home is confirmed to have been destroyed by flames. about 1100 acres have burned. the fire is not even 24 hours old. but it is a major concern. and, i can see the smoke and
smell it. at this point we are watching to see if they are doing another one >> this is no easy task. to take it this close to mountain range, it would be an accurate drop. it's very difficult to apply this plane. and, this is doing drop that wildfires so, it's a very dangerous mission. and, they may or may not be familiar with this area. and, -- >> that was my question. >> yes, i think that there's three of them at least working here in the state of california. >> we see these orange lines, and we have almost considered crisscrossed and more retardant on areas where there are some down. we had a dramatic scene live on the air. and, we saw a pretty thick wall of flames coming up. and, as
soon as those flames hit that read retardant, we can tell, we are up over the area. but, there is a home that i was talking about. and, we can see where this plane is heading. and, pictures from earlier today. >> just need to get back your, looking at cal fire put out a release that it was adding a dc- 10 for the remainder of the current season and it was going to be based near the mcclellan airport. >> okay. >> i think at this point we will have to leave this life. and, when the retardant drop happens it will try to bring that to you. ♪
