>>red flag warnings are popping up across bay area tonight we're taking a live look over downtown san francisco and even though the sun has set and it is dark you can see they're still temperatures in the mid 70's across the bay area good evening. thanks for joining us. i'm ken wayne and i'm vicki liviakis in for pam moore while these warmer nights might feel nice. it is dangerous right now during the height of fire season. we want to get right to chief meteorologist lawrence karnow for a look at how long these warnings are in a lab, yeah, probably for at least the next couple of days, but certainly looks beautiful got to be really careful though we've got. >>just the right combination
8:01 pm
of things going on right now we've got high pressure building over head. we're going to see some very strong gusty winds developing overnight. i may be some 3040 mile an hour gust. we've got some hot temperatures. it's a very low humidity. these conditions pretty typical for this time of year but very dangerous as you're going to see those strong gusty winds developing tonight, especially over the mountain tops in the north and the east bay so that being said red flag warnings that's where they've been posting you see all the areas shaded in red through part of the east bay hills the diablo range. you see going to see some very gusty winds here but i think the place of main concern is really over a parts napa and sonoma county. i guess we're going to see our strongest gust. but certainly should a fire start anywhere in these areas in these kind of conditions it can spread rapidly so something watch out for overnight tonight, we'll see the gust picking up you can see the models start to pick up on that as well more of a northerly component to the wind then watch the colors begin to show up we start to see some yellows even oranges here you see some of those guys like the callisto that 3rd 21 miles per hour. some stronger gusts over some amount probably over 30 and
8:02 pm
that is going to subside a little bit during the day on tuesday only to begin again as we get into wednesday night. we're into wednesday in fact looks like wednesday morning may actually be the peak of the gusts and that's what we're going to see some of those 30 maybe some 40 mile an hour gusts are certainly some dangerous fire conditions it looks pretty. but yeah, it's dangerous outside. >>thanks lawrence and we have team coverage tonight to try thousands of people up the sierra foothills are without power how are due to preventive measures taken by pg e our first stone following the story for us he joins us live. in santa rosa's coffey park, a j r you talk the fire victims tonight, how they feel about these measures. >>well vicki i talk with one man earlier this evening who tells me that if this saves one life then he is all for that victim lost his home. back in 2017 now right now the power is still on here and really there's no wind whatsoever but that could change in the next 2 days dies, they talk about this
8:03 pm
they do want to go to some of the video this is what the coffee park section of santa rosa looks like today and they have certainly come a long way since the tubbs fire in 2017. a fire that destroyed structures and killed 22 0 people i talked with one woman who said that she is all for preventive measures of turning off the electricity and monitoring as long as the monitoring is actually happening as long as it's not lip service from pg e that is what she said cal fire found the tubbs fire was caused by a private electrical system adjacent to a residential structure. but there is now a court battle over that i talk to the man who lost his home and said he is for power shut off. >>it helps one person to turn
8:04 pm
it off it's worth. monetary expense. losing a few dollars with the food. >>bennett fire was back in 2017. but there is still a lot of pain from that fire even today and i could sense that this afternoon everyone hopeful that they never have to see something like that again hopeful that there can be preventative measures going forward so that something like that does not get to that level it got in the past much more on reaction to pg e's decision on some of these power shut off. tonight at 9 o'clock reporting live in santa rosa j r stone kron 4 news there is a while p says it will keep the lights on. >>tonight's that could change in the days ahead as long as there's a red flag warning for parts of the bay area. >>our first dan kerman went to santa rosa tonight. without the genie is preparing.

>>at pg center as a service center extra trucks extra power poles and extra equipment fill the yard in anticipation of the weather to come at this point though plans to shut off the power in sonoma and napa and lake counties monday night have been put on hold. >>so we're monitoring some adverse weather some hot. dry windy weather coming into the area and as that term and even other is a little bit of a fire is still there being a red flag warning day. it was not a heightened fire risk enough to warrant proactively shutting off the power not so lucky or 21,000 customers in the sierra foothills. >>they will see their power turned off monday night. but here in the bay area a power shut off watch remains in effect that means those 55,000 customers in the north bay could see their power shut off on tuesday night. >>takes to be safe and not have catastrophe like that in santa rosa's. >>i think that many who live or work in santa rosa are fine
8:06 pm
with that especially after experiencing 27 teens tubbs fire. in fact for many, the main concern is not the power shut off. but the red flag warning that goes into effect monday night. >>when i hear the winds with bob because i remember the sounds last time and when the winds whipped up. i am sleeping on the couch instead of in the bedroom, i have all my clothes on and i'm watching what's happening that i really do. >>both cal fire and fire agencies in sonoma county. we'll have additional resources ready to go. the sonoma county. >>strike team which is 5 fire engines and a leader. an additional water tender initial dispatcher dispatch center this funding through callow yes there's going to be a second strike team which is 5 engines and a leader this paid for through sonoma county. and so will be through just local government that's likely arc of our partners they'll be 11 extra pieces of equipment on the road extra dispatchers the dispatch center next rover had available.
