away from the more heavily populated areas, including the town of paradise where the camp fire killed more than 80 people back in 2018. and our morning team will have the very latest on all the fires burning across california, in fact, all over the west, tomorrow starting at 4:30. paul heggen standing by, and you've been watching kind of the air quality and also what our weather conditions here could soon hopefully not provide, but the risk that we have. >> always something we have to watch. our air quality isn't going to suffer because of the fires that are ongoing right now, but everything around the bay area is still tinder dry. the vegetation, the fire fuels at near record levels so. the blue line is where we've been since the beginning of the year, and the red line, that's the record low. and that's where we are for the median vegetation, the shrubbery, small trees. the larger trees also very near record lows. this is a cause for concern because there's an outside chance we could have some dry lightning strikes by early next week. let's take a look at the fire danger index as we head through
11:20 pm
next couple of days. with below average temperatures again tomorrow, this is about as low as we see these numbers during the month of july. only two or three on our zero to ten scale. it looks like they'll be higher for the second half of the weekend. a few spots up around four, but the temperatures slowly warming up. at least we're not going to see really dangerous fire weather conditions unless we get some of those cloud to ground lightning strikes. and that's the wild card. it's monsoon season for the desert southwest. tucson picking up moisture over the past two weeks. there's a chance that moisture is going to head up towards the bay area. not a lot of it, but the brown, the dry air, being displaced by this green area, that means that we're talking about enough moisture for at least some cloud cover overhead. there's a low lightning threat. it's not something we can rule out. it's not something you should lose sleep over, but it's something we're going to keep an eye on as we head towards sunday and monday of next week. in the short term, what we have out there right now is more fog
11:21 pm
surrounding the buildings of downtown. 53 degrees downtown. one of the coolest spots, along with santa rosa. we're only going to cool off another couple degrees as the fog continues to spread out. it's going to be out there to begin the day but backs up wards the coast by early afternoon. temperatures begin the day, again, a degree or two cooler than now. except santa rosa, you're in the upper 40s. still below average, # 0s for the coast, 60s around the bay with a mix of 70s and 80s farther inland. even the warm spots are below 90 degrees. for san francisco, a warm-up as we head towards monday. it's a slow warm-up, but the same trend is in place for oakland and san jose, with san jose's temperatures reaching the low 80s by the beginning of next week. a cooldown by the middle of next week. inland, the east bay, you're the hot spots with highs around 90 degrees sunday, monday and tuesday. not quite as hot for the north bay, mid-80s, with temperatures along the coast staying right
