north bay this morning. quiet for the bay area. look at all this month, sudol moisture to our south, though we do have thunderstorms and rain showers pushing in right now from the east in areas like san diego as far north as los angeles. this a monsoonal moisture is eventually going to skirt its way further and further northward and reach the bay area with less chance of rainfall, but a chance of dry lightning. and that does up our fire danger. good news is a southerly flow is still ushering hazy conditions out of our direction out towards the northeast where you can see smoke as far east as washington, d c futurecast shows that chance of thunderstorms building further northward. we do have a chance of dry lightning this afternoon. but our best shot of it is unfortunately during predawn hours tomorrow morning may see a sprinkle or 2. but if you do here, a pop-up thunder that is that dry lightning that could be pushing across the bay area. again, come early tomorrow morning. 50's and 60's for your highs and san francisco as well as right along the coastline, bayshore cities today mostly 70's to 80's. pretty typical stuff for this time of year. honestly palo

6:22 am
bad. and you know what that is. ok because she has plenty more chances to try and win gold and her goal during the olympics is to win 5 medals. and by the way, her 400 meter freestyle. that is what she won silver in it was still her second best time in that she said she's not disappointed. and then we have caleb dressel. he won gold in the men's relay. so he started off the race. he was actually able to finish the race watching it and then after it he handed his gold medal to one of his teammates who actually taken part in the prelims for him. so really a touching moment. certainly they are making us proud. now. melissa, just as much as heard about. >> everyone who is winning doing well out there or also hear stories coming out about different covid restrictions and things that they have to deal with says they've been out there. so were some things that they still can and maybe cannot do. well tell you the athletes they are being tested every day, 6 hours before

>> 6.44. is the time and won a fire rips through community. it's everyone in this morning. we want to take an in-depth look at the toll that actually puts on the firefighters themselves who are battling those wildfires exactly. it's not only taking a physical toll on a lot of the crews, but it also affects their mental health across 4. sarah stinson shows us what's being done to make sure firefighters get the help that they actually need. >> in california unfortunately, wildfire season is no longer a season. but it's year round. so i caught up with napa fire to see how they deal with the emotional
6:45 am
stress is a fighting, a wildfire especially in their own backyard. >> there's no stigma anymore. it's out there that mental health is the number one priority right now, especially for first responders because. we're going out there in these situations that are extremely dangerous hot. we're not going to be seen our family for 14 to 21 days at a time in the past fire departments used to mainly stay within city or county limits. but nowadays firefighters respond to fires all over the state to provide aid fire doesn't stop at county lines at southern mutual aid system. >> really knows no boundaries and firefighters in the state. we can be pretty much anywhere in the state that we you could think of this forces fire crews to be away from their families even longer. >> but when a wildfire sparked within their own county. it's just as hard if not harder. >> we have members that live within napa county. and so in napa county is burning and they're out on a strike team. it's very difficult because they don't have that line of communication with their
6:46 am
family. you might not always know what is happening around the city and what's happening with your family just because you're out sometimes in the middle of nowhere. and so that definitely takes a toner crews to help firefighters deal with all this stress and pressure, a peer support program has been created within the napa fire department with. >> trained personnel that we can reach out to and we can talk to or if we even notice. hey, someone looks like they're having a bad day or they were just on a rough call. they will automatically reach out and begin discussing with them of hay. let's talk about it. >> what's going on? there's also mental and psychological trainings to help firefighters deal with all the devastation they see overcome the psychological things that you think of. >> while we did everything to try to save one home. we spent hours trying to prep it and defend it and we lost it. you know. and that's someone's home. that could be someone's livelihood. it takes a certain type of person to walk into the flames instead of fleeing from them. >> but as heroic as their efforts are, it's only human
6:47 am
to need help. >> i know personally are members. they get tired, you know, and although we're here to do a job and a lot of people look at us as you know, being superheroes. one thing that i try to remind my crews you know, my friends about is that we are just humans. >> i think everyone in the bay area in across california is emotionally bracing for the next big wildfire. the kinds that have a name on them. so we have to prepare our homes. make sure we have a defensible space so that when firefighters are out there and makes their jobs a little easier makes the the job of saving your home or your business, a little easier. we have resources on our website. kron 4 dot com reporting in napa. sarah stinson back to you. >> 6.47. is the time. hopefully we won't have too many wildfires to deal with that straining everybody firefighters included. but zach, this point still dry and it got to deal with that. and then back here at home as we.

the sierra but has yet to reach the bay area. nice little bit of news there. futurecast shows that abundant rainfall that areas like southern california will tap into along with thunderstorms as these move our direction coming along with less and less rain potential, just more and more dry lightning that's why fire danger looks to be higher. so we work our way into the evening and then especially early tomorrow morning as the energy passes to the north beyond us as for temperatures today for daytime highs. i mentioned it's a little bit cooler daytime highs. barely reaching the 90's for literally one or 2 spots. the rest of us in the 70's or 80's for the most part, especially along the bayshore redwood city and san carlos ej 82 south bay temperatures low to mid 80's today. that same spread of 70's 80's for most of the east bay. sure. we do have a few 60's closer to the coast berkeley enrichment may not be close to the coast. but you tap into that coastal breeze to the golden gate antioch at 90 degrees today while bunny should just down the road at quite the range of
