5:17 am
years to the day that katrina hit. officials say ida is coming from a subtly different direction. hurricane experts fear that difference in angle may put new orleans more in dangerous storm quadrants compared to katrina. researchers also say katrina was more of a man-made disaster because of levee failures. experts do not expect ida to generate the huge storm surge that katrina did and that it will have a more focused surge. lisa arjun has been tracking ida 's path. how is it looking? lisa: we touched upon that earlier, it is not looking good. we are looking at a storm surge anywhere from five to 15 feet, and rain that could exceed 15 inches. when it moves into louisiana, that is where we look get the highest impact of wind over 150 mouse per hour -- over 150 miles per hour.
5:18 am
that should happen by about 11:00 our time. back home, we are looking at live doppler low clouds and fog are surging up from the south and that has allowed for pretty good onshore flow. high pressure still in control but it is beginning to break down. this area of low pressure will bring cleaner air, cooler air, stronger wind. the good news is the wind will clean out our air quality but the bad news is it is going to create gusty wind not only here but a red flag warning that has been issued for the lake tahoe area into tomorrow. here is a look at what we can expect for the surface smoke. we are still in the yellow and orange but today, more blue and lighter conditions weaning better air quality along the coast. not so much for the north bay and east bay. into monday, things really begin to improve. tomorrow afternoon, with the gusty wind, we are looking at some pretty awful conditions
5:19 am
with wind out of the west southwest, 20 to 30 mile per hour gusts with relative humidity between 10 and 20 -- between 10% and 20%. we are going to be wanting that closely. back home, -- wanting that closely. back home cup -- watching that closely. back home, the fog gets swept away and we will be having that influence from that system coming in and bringing the breezy wind. 60's in the south bay, 50's in the north bay. a big difference from where we are getting the influence of the onshore flow to where we still have that stagnant air mass with that ridge of high pressure. northern california, the sierra nevada into earlier today, the wind is going to be quite breezy to gback home, we are still loog at some breezy wind, upper elevations. this is when we get into a red flag warning and we are breezy with our onshore flow as well.
5:20 am
as we get into tuesday, even windier for the mountains of the greater lake tahoe area. hazy and hot with highs near 100. upper 60's to 70's in san francisco. 78 in richmond. 80's again in the south bay. still looking at some toasty numbers up toward lake county. the seven day forecast, the hottest day of the week today, but improvements around the bay and along the coast this afternoon. everybody gets better air quality for monday and then the cool turn -- the cooling trend continues with temperatures trending below average as we start september. looking at labor day weekend with no big heat which is good news, but we are going to have to watch out for lake tahoe. it is horrible and the scenario for the next few days looks even worse. kate: we are hoping that wind doesn't make the situation
