through. >> we are looking right now at a fire season that is burning at more than five times the average compared to the past. we have never deployed over 14,000 firefighters at once in california and we are doing that right now. >> reporter: cal fire has to do with 45 to 50 new fires each and every day. it's interesting to note that 95% of those fires are put down before they ever reached 10 acres, or it would be a whole lot worse. tom vacar, ktvu fox 2 news. we are tracking some tropical activity in the pacific. cooler at the coast, warm inland. you know that story. summertime in the bay area. and down in the southern pacific, the tropical pacific, we've got john, kristy, and hector. really, hector is the big story, right now a category 4. look how close it gets to the islands.
6:46 pm
that's close enough to increase the swell and create cloud cover and rain issues, especially for the big island. and even allow who will see some activity from that. just so you know, if it stays category 2, all the way through the next couple of days, that system is definitely going to have an impact. if you have friends vacationing over there. these were the highest today. 95 in antioch, 83 in morgan hill, cooler than yesterday, warmer tomorrow. it will be a spare the air day tomorrow because of all of that smoke. and then, here is the fog along the coast and there's a lot of it. it will be further inland tomorrow morning, but temperatures tomorrow with the decreased air quality. temperatures will be a little bit warmer as well. so there you go. that is your summertime. nothing unusual going on except for the smoke coming down from the fires. current temperatures, 81 in livermore, 77 in fairfield. 10 degrees cooler in fairfield, 15 degrees cooler in napa than
6:47 pm
it was yesterday and you can even see the smoke. that is just what it is. we are looking out toward the north and east a little bit. you can see the air-quality already taking a hit. fog forecast for the morning, it's in there pretty good. brings back tomorrow, and temperatures a lot like today. probably a little bit warmer with those 90s a little bit closer. so, it looks like it's going to be a smoky day tomorrow, too. it will be one of those days were if you do have the elderly, the very young, or pre- existing lung conditions, it's not a good environment for you. the good air-quality will be western marin county come out toward pacifica, ocean breeze because the sea breeze will be active there. and down to santa clara valley. where the air-quality will be not so good either. 93 in morgan hill, 60 in pacifica. so, the 5-day forecast is one that is not extraordinarily hot, or fire induces, it's just summer. but, the fire is burning, and
