lot of times we just see that a isture over the sierer nevada. we saw that actually during the week this time around, though,ooks like that ridge is going to start a bold. just a little closer to the west coast and that's going to bring some of some tropical moisture back in our direction that monsoonal moisture. so it's not really organized kind of a disorganized ban wrapping around that system. so hard to tell you exactly where we might see those lightning strikes, but there's a potential for some that role and tear. you're going to see that on the computer models for the first part. looks like just fog low clouds to start out your weekend. that's not bad. we've been seeing that almost all summer long, at least through month of july. but then as we get sunday morning. all that wrap around moisture that mom soon begins to work its way north to the models begin to pick up on showers thunderstorms in the sierra nevada. if you're headed up there to go. campin. got to watch out that continues right through monday morning. and then that kind of moves out. but you know what? after little bit of a break during the middle of the week, we may visit the monsoons again. looks like late next week as well. so that's going
to be recurring pattern. and of course, got to worry about fires. fire. weather watches are up for good part of the bay area, especially over the mountain tops possibility of those thunderstorms and then you get those downdraft from those thunderstorms should a fire start. you get those real gusty winds that could make things extremely dangerous. guys, back to you. thanks, lawrence. more than 8,000 acres have been burned in the dixie fire. that's up in butte county crews say. >> very hard time containing the fire because of the steep terrain fires near the burn scar of that deadly camp fire in paradise. it is 9% contained. >> and right now strong winds continue to hamper efforts to contain the beckwourth complex fire in northern california. this is near the nevada border. it's burned more than 105,000 acres 70% contained tonight and they're saying more than 30 homes have been destroyed in the small town of doyle. fire officials say this fire did spark from lightning strike. the river fire is
