6:16 pm
now, which is grass. three fires today, all three of them are grass fires. one of them is in san jose. that one under control. it was closer to milpitas. you know that one. the one liz was just talking about. and then this one, just outside pittsburg. woo we're going go to the alert fire. it does not look that impressive any more. but let's get oriented. pittsburgh, out in the delta. that arrow shows you the camera. and it's looking that way. that fire is burning just on the outskirts of a golf course called the delta view which is on the outskirts of pittsburgh. you want to see a promising sign? watch the smoke really diminish. we started the newscast talking than one. it looked pretty ominous. but just within the last few minutes now, things have improved a little. obviously, you've got to get reports from the front line to come away with any concrete information on that fire. but just from looking at the plume from a difference, it's a
6:17 pm
little lighter in color and there is a little less smoke coming from it. i can show you what the overall winds are going to be through the delta, but that doesn't matter that fire is going to be strictly driven by terrain and its own heat that it's generating. so that's going to be an issue on the front lines. there it is. this the view from the salesforce tower looking east. that's the plume of smoke coming off of that particular fire. thankfully, it hasn't grown much either. i've been watching that since the start of the newscast. it looks pretty much the same. okay. back to the weather. got kind of warm today. concord 90 for the daytime high today. you warmed up. san jose was 10 degrees warmer today than yesterday. today was the day we did the big jump in temperatures. tomorrow we're going to go up a few more. that's the peak. and then we're going start cooling down. kind of dramatically too. as we get into thursday and friday, it's going to be 20 degrees cooler than that. morning lows tomorrow down into the mid-50s. daytime high, let's get everybody in here. these are the warmest temperatures of the whole week. south bay upper 80s. i think we'll hit a few 90s down
6:18 pm
there. we'll certainly hit a few 90s. pleasant hill 91. livermore, you might make it to 90. but back in the bays, a lot of green over here. we don't feel this as much if you're near the water. it's one of those days. still going to be int the upper 60s in the city. we'll be in the mid-70s. as soon as you go inland, look at the numbers through sonoma. rohnert park, 81. you're getting a little influence through the plume gap there. pulling in some slightly cooler air for you. but you don't get that help in mendocino county. you're going to be in the low 90s. i mentioned the dramatic cooldown on thursday. that's it. that's the cold front you're kind of seeing in the clouds there. you really see a big trough on the water vapor. that's how we're going cool down. it's got plenty of water vapor to work with. it's just not going to hold together in terms of rain. by thursday, even if the rain misses us, there is a big pool of cool air right there otrying to come our way. if you look at the high resolution futurecast, going into wednesday night and thursday, that line in the clouds is a cold front. and that will move through into thursday. and that's the reason why we're
6:19 pm
going see daytime highs go from the low 90s today to the low 70s inland by thursday as that cold front comes in on wednesday night. it will also get kind of windy as it does that. we're not looking at any wind advisory. it's not fire weather concern kind of wind. everything is going to be fire weather concern for the next several months. but these are not going to be dry offshore winds. these will be better onshore winds. and they certainly cool us down. that's san francisco, san jose, oakland. let's get the microclimates on here. this is where you see going from low 90s to low 70s in two days. we warm up a bit. father's day will still be nice. but father's day is going to be a little warmer, keep the outdoor plans. >> sounds good. perfect barbecue weather. >> worked out well for dad that way. here is the latest on the wildfire burning in pittsburg. this fire has grown to ten acres along golf club road and leland road near the rancho medanos junior high school.
