1:14 am
in all the smoke we see now for the last four weeks. let's show you what we have outside. one of the changes we're starting to see a more of an on shore push. not really making a big dent. but numbers in the mid 50s across the bay area and actually inland. livermo rr livermore and the tri valley cooled off. sure enough, wind in fair field. southwest at 20 miles an hour. it's just that there is such a volume of unhealthy air in dense smoke that is still just stuck in the region. look at san francisco. back to very unhealthy. by morning, oakland, hayward, pal low alto and san jose over 200 again tomorrow morning, but you can see we're still very unhealthy for parts of the bay area. so as this process of improving our air quality starts to get underway, we're still seeing a spare the air day tomorrow. 150 and 200.
1:15 am
but as that chart at the top of the screen shows you, spare the air criteria is 100. so these conditions may improve tuesday, but it's going to continue to slowly unwind high plugs numbers around the bay area. areas of smoke again. but look at the low clouds. you might find that into solano county, too. more hazy sunshine. 80s for morgan hill, upper 60s for san francisco. mid-80s for the tri valley. so this for the most part has been the pattern we have been seeing. so what we need is area of low pressure or more mixing of the atmosphere. i think that is how wednesday will look. before we get to wednesday, we still have tomorrow. notice monday we begin to see some of the thicker smoke bands from the smoke that is burning from wild fires to our south and east. that starts to get redirected out to the sierra. north bases improvement during
1:16 am
the day. the wind will help clear the air year leading to red flag warnings near the complex fire. we have to watch that for tomorrow as the winds pick up. by wednesday, better air quality. this same weather quality bringing the wind to bring some rain showers. but some of that might just make it to the northern california coast. wouldn't that be nice? friday into saturday showers there out. then as we move into the weekend, some north wind might try to pick back up again. such is the fortunes of our forecast as we approach the end of summer here. you see we got numbers climbing a little bit for the middle part of the week. i think the best air we'll see will be wednesday through friday. then next weekend stay tuned. we will see those temperatures rebounding a bit. not only have to watch that for dry conditions but will the smoke try to come back down to the south?
1:17 am
it is a very complex forecast. day-to-day changes in the wind, short term and midweek it looks betterment chance of those friday showers. but next weekend stay tuned as those temperatures climb once again. we'll send it back to you. >> rob, thank you. still ahead, new changes for the golden gate bus service. what you need to know ahead of your commute and the reason for the change. football season officially kicking off and the nfl has had to come up with a new p give you my world ♪

1:34 am
1:35 am
1:36 am
eight families of farm workers are out of their homes after another wild fire sprang up overnight. the new 40 acre fire flaired up. a volunteer group today collected donations for the families. they ae're currently staying in hotels, but volunteers took donations for long-term living. group met today in oakland to collect the goods and headed up to give out the donations to
1:37 am
families. >> rob, it seems like, you know, you kind of win. you kind of lose. we will get some wind that gets the smoke out of here. it will also be pushing flames in the fires going out around the area. >> yeah. it's a good point. we really need wind to be in the right direction. but in doing so, you mentioned that's going to bring up the wind speed around some of those fires, especially in northeastern california around the north complex. it is a trick yes kwaugs i will be watching over the next couple of days. those fires will make a push. right now, there is not enough wind to clear out the smoke we still have in the bay area. still very unhealthy in san francisco. i wouldn't be surprised to see them settle in to oakland and san jose for the weekend. so the forecast officially for tomorrow carrying over the
1:38 am
unhealthy range. that's from 150 to 200 for monday and we're expecting with the next update with the bay area air quality management district the temperatures will start to come down. but keep in mind spare the air numbers that was back when we had it over at 100. you might see in the issued for tuesday. but the overall trend should be to decreasing numbers approaching midweek. san jose right now a little combination of fog and smoke. similar conditions in walnut creek. the high today, similar conditions tomorrow for places like concord and dublin. probably get some low clouds and maybe some drizzle along the coast. in terms of fire danger, all the air pollution is not. but look at how inland that low cloud cover could be. straight for the morning with patchy areas of dense fog. watch out for that for the morning. we will see the low clouds
1:39 am
retreat back to the coastline. temperatures climbing through the 70s around lunchtime inland and highs generally in the 80s. no 90s in the forecast tomorrow. so that is the weather system that should bring us better wind here through about midweek. if you look closely there on friday there will be some rain out of this. for the wild fires, welcome news there. we're talking about an inch or more of some rain north of the border there as we drop down closer to our northwest coast. by friday and saturday, substantial rain around you aeu. boy, stay tuned for next weekend as high pressure builds in behind that system. we're not expecting strong, damaging, gusty offshore winds but the problem with that is it may try to push smoke from the fires to the north back at us by next weekend.
1:40 am
short term midweek we're expecting gradually improving conditions in terms of air quality. the best part of the forecast is that thursday to friday forecast for parts of the state, especially north of the country. we will see some showers. but keep a close eye on next week end. we will have to watch the wind again. but those fires still ongoing as we know too well here from the last four weeks any subtle shift in the wind will bring smoke back to the bay area. for now we'll focus on the positive. and then focus on next weekend next weekend. focus on the good news the next three or five days. >> taking it one step at a time.
