throw into that all of the other thgspg&e has to consider, they just simply said we don't think that power lines are going to come down but there is no guarantee that they're not going to have some fire of some source. late last night the fire safety center gave a heads up about a possible public safety power shut off initially in the sierra foothills.>> the adverse weather was increasing and it became a watch so as we continue to monitor all the conditions and the wind speed and humidity levels we put the north bay on watch as well.>> 120,000 customers were told a power shut off might be coming and we are not home free just yet>> even though we are not planning on shutting out the power in the north bay tonight there still is a potential for
5:01 pm
another weather system moving in tuesday night. people might be contacted again.>> we remain under unofficial not the weather service red flag warning for the next two days across a vast area.>> across much of northern california many of our counties all the way up north are facing flag want to conditions. >> reporter: there usually require high temperatures, low humidity and strong wind regardless of power shut off because plenty of things beyond power lines can cause fires.>> in the last few years it has been these high wind events that fueled is really large and damaging fires.>> reporter: the fire department says this is only the beginning of heightened fire danger from power lines to cigarettes, from dragging change the barbecues and accidents and arson. >> especially october, november and december if you look at the top 20 for most destructive and deadly is fires they are about 17 of the 20 in the month.
5:02 pm
>> reporter: so we remain in serious fire wash mode until at least wednesday morning so trim up all unnecessary vegetation, have your bags ready to go, leave when told to, do not stay behind to try to fight an oncoming wind driven fire, that would be a very bad idea. >> so pg&e decided not to shut the power off tonight despite the red flag warning going into effect at 10:00 this evening? is it because of the wind?>> reporter: it has a lot to do with these calculus is they have to perform and win is certainly the biggest issue because it's the greatest enemy of our companies and electricity companies mowing things down but apparently they feel that all things considered they are not going to have gus of 40 to 45 miles per hour or gus even higher than that and
5:03 pm
those are the things that they have to worry about. it is a close call to be sure but the reality of the situation is they don't think it's necessary, hopefully it will not be and again they have a lot of experience with this so it is a bit call for them and we will see what happens. >> pg&e is still set to turn off power to about 21,000 customers in the sierra foothills right about now, the shut off so that customers in butte, nevada and yuba counties due to the strong wind and hot temperatures in the forecast. customers will be notified by phone, text and email. pg&e says the power will stay off until it is safe to restore service. those counties should be on standby for another shut off tomorrow. there are red flag warnings and parts of the area including the east hills, this is a live look at mount diablo where the temperatures got into
5:04 pm
the 90s today. that is one clue therefore hot and lint conditions.>> for more on all of this we have our chief meteorologist bill martin here, how long can this red flag warning be in effect? >> it looks like three wednesday morning, the main event will be tonight and i would suggest that probably the forecast has backed off a little bit on the wind so we think that has a lot to do with their decision in the north bay. the red flag warning is in effect tonight for the hills in the north and east a and also includes paradise and red bluff, all the way through the central valley. the wind will get to 12 to 35 miles per hour, the strongest wind late tonight and early tomorrow morning. the high pressure and wind blows offshore so when the air sinks it warms so what you're seeing here, 90s and 100s around parts of the bay like
5:05 pm
places in san jose and oakland could see low 90s, heat advisory, non-extreme heat warning and then we have a spare in the air. again was this unusual? we have these all the time especially this time of year, this is pretty typical through this time of year so just be aware, we have seen a lot of what can happen but just be aware this is not out of control, this is something we see quite often. strong wind late tonight and early tomorrow morning, temperatures tomorrow with a heat advisory into effect because temperatures will get into the 90s and low 100s and parts of the bay area>> be sure to download the weather app is the weather service announces them.>> pg&e has finalized an agreement to resolve most of the insurance claims on the
