these are today's highs. it's warmer. tomorrow it will be warmer still. so instead of upper 80s, some low 90s. tomorrow is the warmest day of the week. so 96 degrees up in the redding area tomorrow for the daytime high. not easy fighting fires when it's 13% humidity and 96 degrees. for us the fog is back. and the pattern is changing in that the compression, the marine layer is shrunk. it's not as thick. so with less thickness, further warming. so when that thing pinches down, you can see it. last night, cooler lower temperatures. now it's not getting inland and tomorrow night at this time mark will show you the same map and you will see oranges and yellows all the way into the oakland hills. there's a shot -- interesting enough, you look at the live camera shot, last few nights, the inversion or the fog has been above the sutro camera. now it's down. it's that whole pinching down,
right? it's really all summer is, it's -- it's -- it's inversion. it's about the depth of the inversion, basically tells you everything you need to know. it doesn't make as big a difference in the winter because the weather systems that are actively coming through the inversion doesn't exist. that's why high pressure is what you need to have to have an inversion and in the winter months we have more dominant low pressure typically. there's the five-day forecast. you can see temperatures warm friday and saturday, cooling off sunday through tuesday. but a nice looking five-day forecast with fire danger coming up tomorrow but really it's going to get a quick cooldown as we head towards the early part of next week. well, tiger woods is back on top of the leaderboard looking for his first win in more than 5 years. mark will have his highlights and the rest of sports coming up next. g up next.
