6:07 pm
by the wind, it won't just be the terrain driving it. the wind can potentially push it toward immunities where people live. daytime high temperatures are pretty high today, they will get higher tomorrow, just a quick view of daytime highs tomorrow, we are not going to be breaking any records, except for in oakland where we break it by 2 degrees. it's going to be hot everywhere. we will talk more about how this could last. glass fire is the smallest fire in northern california right now, putting out the least amount of smoke. i will show you the perspective in just a few minutes. >> we will get back to more

6:15 pm
campfire. they can't use the plane after dark, so wind has become a renewed factor. snow early this morning we had some of the strongest wind. in our focus close to home, i don't want to overlook what happened northern california today. take a look at the big picture here, you see many others. the glass fire is the smallest one. that is the august complex. you can see the white dots there, there are so many labels to keep track of. this was north of the sacramento valley. this is a classic example of what offshore wind can do. we've got intense warmth through much of august, and the
6:16 pm
intense dryness. and all of those things add up, all adding up to a fairly run-of-the-mill offshore wind event. we have to think about air quality concerns, there is a caveat to this, when you forecast for smoke, you have to have accurate fire information. these fires are taking a fast and behave erratically. it is hard to track these with the model. but the streamlined over the next 24 hours will drive it our way. even without the glass fire, the north complex picking up today, we are going to be pulling in more smoke from the creek fire. we have seen the air quality
6:17 pm
sensors today. we've seen hazy conditions. it looks bad. we played this game before. the way the sky looks is not always showing the way the air is registering. there is a little blowback to it. if we look at the forecast for ar quality, it is likely that tomorrow will read unhealthy for sensitive groups. again forecasting is not an exact science, but we are doing the best that we can with information that we gather like this. tomorrow is not going to be a good day to be outside. tuesday, wednesday, thursday, we need to stay on top of that as well. every time we had a long stretch of moderate, it didn't have to pan out. there is a heat wave going on
6:18 pm
as well. i want to quickly give you the run through on daytime high temperatures for tomorrow, i want to call out your part of the bay area. this is a big issue for tomorrow, tomorrow's numbers are going to be a few degrees warmer than today was. middle to upper 90s through the south bay with plenty of smoke up ahead. it will be a degree or two higher than today. ninety-nine in livermore, we take a look at the north bay, 100 degrees in san rafael, 93 in san francisco, this will be the peak of the heat, and we only hit 89 in the city today. it will be 100 in santa rosa, low one hundreds as we get into the north bay. let's look at the seven day forecast. monday is the peak. how fast can we keep the numbers down?

will light the map up, with strong offshore wind once again banning the famous flames appear. deduction the direction of the wind will matter more tomorrow morning. the reason is because of where the flames have moved. everywhere you see a red square, and shows you where that satellite meeting the fire, the important distinction is that hospital is not in town. i want to come in for a close- up look on that. it is much closer to the front lines of the fire and it sits up in the hills. you will see a little yellow pin that shows up you highlight where. there is the footprint from the fire. that is why the evacuated the hospital today. it was up in the hills and on the leading edge of where the flames could be potentially

6:48 pm
spreading over a rich. pg&e is cutting power to more customers. shut offs will affect 65,000 customers in 16 counties mostly in the central sierras. despite the fire that broke out overnight at napa county, 288 customers are impacted the shut off, along with two customers in sonoma county. the power will be out overnight until monday morning. >> we have shown you a lot of the aerial file firefight. bulldozers were spotted frantically digging fire lines. this vineyard basically saved itself. the road around it acting as a natural fire break in that particular area. >> the question is, what is next? you see the smoke in the sierras that has really
6:49 pm
degraded. >> it is time to turn our attention to that, air quality is going to go downhill, not entirely because of the glass fire, petaluma especially is breathing and smoke from the glass fire. we need some perspective on what happens today, with all the attention that we've been focusing on the glass fire, i don't want to overlook what happened in california. you will see that last frame, we are still able to use this to as a tool to see all of the fires. you can see the column of smoke in comparison with the five other fires that are burning in north carolina in northern california. the august complex started, that when really took off today, look at the last frame, that is a familiar sight.
6:50 pm
see that bubbling light. ? that is a pyro claim a pyro cumulus cloud, showing us the heat and energy from that fire. how long will the wind continue to blow that way? that is a big matter in terms of our air quality. and another fire just started today. we are back to looking at air quality. let's go back to the report. it looks bad out there for the most part. petaluma, you have been unhealthy for sensitive groups. the smoke from the glass fire is going directly over you, it has been a localized impact for petaluma. everybody else gets in the act tomorrow. here is the smoke forecast. the deeper the red, the higher the concentration of smoke. you can see more smoke coming back from the creek fire. here is the caveat. to get an
6:51 pm
accurate forecast on the smoke, you have to have accurate information on what the fires are doing. they took off so quickly today. this smoke forecast is missing some of this. but in general you can see the wind you're showing you how the wind will be transferring smoke tomorrow. the creek fire is likely to be the main offender tomorrow anyway. either way we will see the air quality go downhill tomorrow the smoke will likely last until tuesday. here's the way things stand on that air quality forecast. likely falling back into unhealthy for sensitive groups. that will be for the wider swath of the bay area. forecasting is a new science and we do our best, because it is important, that's where things stand right now, it is not an exact science. tomorrow is the peak of the heat wave.
6:52 pm
up to 4 degrees warmer tomorrow . we are getting close, we will not break many records. oakland hitting 94 tomorrow you could hit 2 degrees above the record for oakland. we will get a broad overview of what daytime high temperatures look like. there are a lot of triple digits on here. i showed you the up and personal up close and personal look. a quick snapshot. on the 70 forecast, we would like to know when the heat is going away. good news, tomorrow is the peak. bad news, it's not a quick decline. still in the upper 9090's in the end, tuesday and wednesday. friday is in the lower 90s. we will be 10 degrees cooler to end the coming week. you will feel that cooldown as well. that's in the bay area. there is some improvement coming. start making plans on how to
6:53 pm
handle poor air quality with a heat wave, that's what tomorrow is. air conditioning, we saw the cloud of smoke and my heart fell. i knew we'd lose our home...

>> if you're just joining us, yet another fire has broken out, this one began before 4:00 open napa county. overnight when will be the big concern, it's all going three up to 5 miles northeast northeast of calistoga. the wind direction is going to be a big concern tonight. the glass fire covers at least 1500 acres in the hills east of
6:56 pm
silverado trail. it's on the other side of silverado trail. containment still stands at 0%. we don't know why it started, but it did again hills, flames are now raising downhill toward the reservoir. >> at least two dozen people are under mandatory evacuations with warnings expending on the silverado trail. air tankers are waging a fierce aerial battle. the mayor the major concern is the possibility of wind picking up and pushing the flames toward more populated areas to the south and the west. that affects about 1500 acres and 2000 people. we've been bringing you live pictures from the fire lines all day from the cbsn bay area.
6:57 pm
we will bring you breaking news around-the-clock. use our new app, in the app store. or use google play. the wind will be a big factor with red flag warnings posted. offshore wind is the last thing we want. that fire is on the eastern side of silverado trail. that could mean this being pushed out west. we will have the latest at 11:00. kenny and joe
