roadmaps resort or, rather, report considers length and quality of life along with clinical care and it was not a surprise to him it was the 11th time in 12 years that marin snagged the top ranking but the report also reveals where marin can improve. the county has one of the worst scores in income inequality and got low grades on housing affordability. a fire that ripped through a san rafael restaurant is being investigated as arson this evening. broke out late tuesday night, in a building on bellum boulevard. firefighters face someone broke in and spread of flammable liquid around the place before setting it ablaze. the speaker system then kicked in before too much damage was done. investigators say surveillance video captures at least one image of the suspect setting the fire, so far that footage has not been made public. of the peninsula, two people had to be rescued from a fire at historical style historic hotel. and when firefighters arrived, two people were leaning out of the second floor window waiting
6:14 pm
for rescue. it was safely taken down by latter. none of the people were able to escape on their own. nobody was seriously hurt, that historic and stood on main street since the year before 1906 quake. been there a long time. the investigator started in a closet, spread to a hallway. the exact cause is unknown. last night a suspected drunk driver was arrested after plowing right to a 711 store front, an suv slammed right into a front window, hitting a redbox display and shattering the glass. no word of any injuries. that would include a pair of small earthquakes that rattled parts of the bay area this morning, 3.0 four northwest of livermore, just before five in the morning, and then a couple of hours later, in a site that is used to have a lot of earthquakes because of
6:15 pm
the geothermal fields, there was that little 3.4 by calistoga, there was no reports of any damage. and no reports of any rain. looks like status quo as far as leather is concerned. >> reporter: that is his favorite. i had not heard that one. >> he never used to tune it and watch, is that right? >> when it comes to the weather, you and i are never in the same room at the same time. >> you're standing right over there. >> the only one of us is doing the weather at a time. let's get into this forecast. we had a big change today, if you were inland. livermore, i'm talking to you but it is not only livermore and this camera technically sits up above dublin looking at the direction of livermore but it is the entire tri-valley, the whole diablo valley, concord, pleasanton, everybody out here, cooled down by about 10 degrees today, a big drop from where we were. if you look at the current numbers, scratch that, you do
6:16 pm
not call them, you warmed up by 10 degrees. that is the whole theme of my story. if you look at the numbers, we are in the mid to upper 70s out here. everybody else right now is in the low 60s, if you go into the immediate bay and if we switch the way we look at this and colorcode the map for where we warmed up the most you could see the big orange pool of where the temperatures went top, right about 10 degrees and the reason why that happened is because the wind started to lighten today, so we are going to switch the map and you will see the colors reversed. we go from where the temperatures warmed up today, and instead of looking at that we are going to look at where the wind is the most noticeable today. and everything disappeared over here. because the wind were not a factor. but over here, along the coast, they are still going. we have gusts getting into the 25 mile an hour range of the coast and this is our time of year for this. we go into the sea breeze on steroids routine for the next several months. and you really start to see the huge differences now between how it feels near the coast, to how it feels inland and since
6:17 pm
that breeze lightens up a bit today, we were able to really warm up if you were inland and as we look at tomorrow, we are still going to have that onshore flow, it is still getting windy in the city, still getting windy on the coast and in the immediate bay but it won't be as windy inland and we will keep the temperatures pretty much right where they were for today. for those numbers that i just showed you. and the unfortunate timing of this is we get into late spring and early summer when we start to really increase the wind. that is also when we are putting the most pollen in the air. it is the most unfortunate combination you can have if you are an allergy sufferer and if we look at the next few days, today on the top of that list, getting into the high category for mulberry, okun ashby, basically tree pollen if you are a grass sufferer, you can throw that in as well because that is always pretty much a factor for us. so it is a combination of high wind and high pollen count and it is just the time of year.
6:18 pm
there is no way around it, really. that is the view from the top of the sales force tower. perfectly clear looking down 80, same story here, that is the future of the whole east bay and the numbers will stay pretty comfortable except for the north bay where we have to go back down to 39 for the morning low and daytime highs tomorrow, this map looks almost exactly the same as the number i just showed you for what the current temperatures are right now, and we are pretty much right at the daytime high. we usually have that right in the late afternoon, so it is almost an exact replay in terms of the way things are going to feel both temperature wise, wind wise, allergy wise, and no rain wise. you can play that out here, as well. there's no chance of rain here for the next seven days and really not anything worth getting too excited about once we get past the seven-day forecast. so pretty typical as we get into the mid to late april, this is kind of what it does around here. over to you. breaking news, where good

responsibility to protect the students in your community. >> that was anna giles reporting. in a few weeks, they will start fire prevention work inside the classrooms. they will replace wood paneling and install new vents that can actually block out the ash. >> doll and had darren has been talk about blocking out the pollen. >> we are talking about that in the last half hour. this is not only the time of year when we start putting those pollen in the air, it is the time of year when we get our most consistent onshore wind, the sea breeze on steroids that just moves the pollen around so effectively. today we got a little bit of a reprieve from that, and did have an impact on the temperatures and the way it felt out there. what a pretty time-lapse, by the way, looking off towards the east but i want to move on from that and i just want you to be where we did the warm up the most. santa rosa, livermore, 10
6:52 pm
degrees warmer today than yesterday, concord, nine degrees warmer but when you get into the bay, there really wasn't that much of a difference. san francisco and oakland were only up about three or four degrees from where we were yesterday, now that we have covered how big the jump was. there are the numbers for where we actually were for daytime highs to. santa rosa is almost 80. 78 in concord. that was a dramatic turn, it has everything to do with the fact that we had less of a strong onshore surge. that is the view looking at the scene of dublin, livermore. this is one of the places that did a big warmup. that is the live view now from the sales force tower and if you look at where the wind is, we have not turned the wind off completely. it is still going. beautifully outlined colorcode. you can see the trouble spot is. bodega bay has a 36 mile an hour gusts and in the city at 14, this is the time of day
6:53 pm
when we feel that strongest surge where the wind starts to come back and through the golden gate and work its way, trying to get up. sometimes it goes all the way and sometimes it doesn't. watch what happens tomorrow. calm scott in the morning and in the afternoon it comes back again but the colors are not as bright. so we get a little bit of a break from the onshore wind and it is pretty much going to be identical to tomorrow to what we did today. same thing with the marine layer, we are not going to be waking up to a whole lot in terms of the mid-level stratus clouds. we will have some, we had some this morning and we will have them again tomorrow but if you wake up after 8:00, nine a clock in the morning, you will miss it and it will be sunny skies once again. go back down to the upper 30s but everybody else stays in the mid-40s, for morning lows, and for daytime highs tomorrow. these are almost an exact replay of what we did today. give or take a degree or two, no real change, so the weekend

will be very similar. we did a big adjustment today and now we just kind of stay here really for much of the next seven days. we are kind of locked in this pattern. that is the same storm that we looked at last week at this time. there it is spinning in the same spot. a couple of other storms up here also not able to get here. let me look. everything that is going on out here and nothing for us except a little bit of the marine layer that built-in along the coast and even putting this into the long-range forecast, just letting it go, watch the dates up there. that is taking us well ahead now into next weekend, and now we are looking back toward like april 20th, still, unsettled weather out here, in other words, mild storm minutes but none of it can get here so there is no rain in the forecast and we don't have any dramatic changes now, either, over the next seven ys. daytime highs will stay in the mid to upper 70s for inland locations, if you are in and you will stay in the mid to
6:55 pm
upper 60s for much of the bay and it will stay in the upper 50s to low 60s up the coast. probably going to look like this for a while. this is the time of year where we get locked into a pattern like this. hang in there, allergy sufferers. the pollen is bad, the wind isi
