another hot day in the valleys and even inside the bay going to be on the hot side as it's going to take at least another day before that real cool air the as a filter further on shore to drop those temperatures i think back to normal by about wednesday, so numbers around the bay area looking like this tomorrow, you're still topping out at 75 degrees in san francisco, but look at the sunset you get in that fog and of course that will keep you much cooler in the 60's planning some 60's out toward the beaches tomorrow where today we actually had some 80's and some 90's so maybe as much as a 20 degree plus drop up toward the coastline 79 in millbrae t in burlingame a much more reasonable there still some warm to hot numbers in redwood city about 90 to 92 and also mount view the you can see some hot numbers in the 80's in the 90's as well and still very toasty inland. almost triple digits in live more about 96 in dublin, those temperatures getting near 100 degrees and conquered by tomorrow afternoon it the idea still hot anywhere away from the coastline much cooler weather on the way but will take probably toward the middle a week before it gets here. lauren tell you. weather
is really causing some to concern for wildfires here in the bay area we saw brush fire. >>that broke out in concord today, there's of course that fire burning up in a yellow county to joining us now is cal fire public information officer. >>chief scott mclean a chief thanks for being with us what can you tell us about the situation in the bay area right now in terms of the incidents are working. >>right now he is right up the fire up a county there the sand fire as over 2200 acres still so it is holding its own at the moment i imagine we'll see a little bit of an increase here the next day or so and as of this morning was about 30% contained. we'll get some more updated information about an hour now on this fire is burning in the very inaccessible area. so as you can see a lot of folks are high heene in or being flown in some cases as well as the about 1100 i believe firefighters are assigned to this incident. >>i was in the east bay yesterday and. and very dry.
but the winds are really kicking up and in some spots is that a concern for you today as well. >>the winds have died down a little bit but you're right it just takes a small breeze that promote he's far as do the dryness of the vegetation and think of the departed in this particular area runs a canyon we're always dealing with fires in there. it seems like every other year we have another fire in this particular area. we're looking at predicted winds again later on this week, we're looking at triple digit figures here in the upper valley. today tomorrow, the next day and then will cool down into the 90's but then we'll come right back up to the hundreds over the weekend. >>chief we saw above average rainfall in may and then that was the obvious lee right after a winter that that had a sizable amount of rain. what what is better to have a lot of but then i know that that fuels the growth which then dries out from your point of view where do we stand right now in terms the level of danger compared to maybe a more average year for
rainfall. >>as far as the snow pack and as far as the rain we had in a rain throughout may so we had some drying prriods that promoted the gross the growth of the grass of course so we saw that a few times so that's been our difficulty as far as the density and i to that grass, let's look at 2017 we saw that significant rain and that's significant snow pack. he does some tina snowpack melt that pretty quick as we start seeing triple digit figures as far as temperatures late may definitely into june the early part of june with north winds the key on that one was we had that consistency a consistency of that heat for several weeks we're not right now we had that this year we've had the significant snow pack more so than that time and we definitely had more rain but again we're seeing things dry out very quickly in the valley a lot of these fires are less than a 1000 feet elevation. the winds are definitely promoting it and we're getting prepared again for another onslaught of winds. >>so chief is this a fire season. i know there's been some talk about the fire season now extending really
throughout the year have redefined things it on your end as well. >>see fire danger probably a midsummer to october. usually historically it's been september october been our worst 2 months every year. but that's gone there's no rule of thumb in reference to that anymore. so are seen whatever pops up at any time we're definitely seeing again this year the north winds. everything is drying out and is or dry. you've got such low humidities and he was 13% earlier today on the sand fire and might have even dropped down the single digits this afternoon. you've got the winds which is promote that dryness are vegetation never has had a chance believe me to recoup that moisture is going to take several more years of the storms we had this year and in 2017 to ring that moisture back into those plants that doesn't happen over one or 2 or 3 years. >>well that is an ominous a piece of information there we always appreciate your time
