you're venturing outside lots of sunshine overhead, get some birds out there already enjoying this brisk morning. otherwise it is going to be a really nice day. temperatures are going to rise swiftly here. we do have high pressure still in place much as we saw yesterday, keeping is a very, very dry still going to be looking at those cold mornings. those sunny and warm afternoons pretty much all through the rest of this forecast. not a lot changing here. so today's daytime highs, couple of degrees warmer than yesterday for a few spots. we're talking low to mid 60's and san francisco and but right along the coastline, bayshore cities among our warmest. we're getting very close to 70 from saying carlos down through mountain view it into the low 70's across most of the south bay, which is our warmest region in the bay campbell in san jose, for example, at 71 oakland, a comfortably cool 66 today. well, looking at some 60's across the north bay pittsburgh and allay each at 63 santa rosa down through center fell in the mid 60's. here's a look ahead at our
7:47 am
next 7 days. today and tomorrow. among the coolest, believe it or not. and it's already pretty mild. we get a really warm into thanksgiving are the post thanksgiving weekend. the solid low 70's for most of the bay area, keeping that around through the end of november and start of december. we need some rainfall at some point. but hey, for your travels for your shopping. it does look good for all of it in your next 7 days. back to you. all right. thank you very much, john. so california is the only place in the world where you can find naturally occurring groves of giant sequoia trees. it's one of the things that makes california special. it's so beautiful and experts. you something. >> wildfires did not pose a threat to their existence here. but they don't think that anymore. now chip yost explains. >> as huge flames started getting closer to giant sequoia groves in september. special teams of firefighters try to protect them taking special measures such as wrapping a protective foil around their bases. this here
7:48 am
is the general grant, the second largest tree in the world. and one of the trees that firefighters and park workers used a very unique methods on in order to protect it during one of the recent fires, one of those methods involved setting up sprinklers next to the tree. firefighters were also taught what to do if the fire got inside the court say this heart was way up. top. >> this goes all the way up. they're going to get that hose, turn the pressure up and they actually stick the hose up into there. because really there's no other way you can get it from the top. can't get it with tools. so they're just they're out there think outside the box on some of these fires. the extraordinary measures put in place after thousands of remarkably fire resistant giant sequoias were lost to wildfires in recent years. such devastation. >> 10 to 14% of the entire giant sequoia population was once unthinkable. that's been really disturbing because we didn't think that was possible for these trees have evolved
7:49 am
with fire for thousands of years say the existing with fire for thousands of years. >> and something in the last couple years driven by changes in climate and hotter conditions. drier conditions. a difference in fuel loading. all of those things combined have created the conditions where these trees. are now struggling to survive. >> experts say one big reason for the unprecedented losses is decades and decades of fire suppression. let's explain for centuries. researchers say small to moderate fires sparked by lightning or other causes. >> would burn through the forest. every 10 to 20 years. clearing the ground of smaller trees, brush and forest debris and providing fertile spots for sequoia seeds to landing grow. but in 1935 the u.s. force service adopted the 10:00am policy. that is it would try to put out every fire by 10:00am the day after it started that policy. however, allow the density of
7:50 am
those for us to grow unchecked for decades combined with drought and hotter temperatures. all that dry forest buildup can now turn small to moderate fires into infernos. big enough to reach the top of giant sequoia trees and killed them. the fire gets off the ground gets into the canopy. a 100 to 200 feet off the ground. >i and incinerate these >i and incinerate these ancient trees. these 1000 to into the world's biggest blackest toothpick. well, that was chip yost reporting for us this morning. >> all right. 7.50, let's turn our attention to sports. we've got basketball. of course, the warriors back at home taking on the philadelphia 76 ers and philly jumped out to an early lead. in fact, they dominated most of the 1st half. but the warriors, well, they came roaring back in the second steph curry leading the way for the dubs with 25 points. his brother, seth had 24 for philly and just wasn't enough in the end because golden
7:51 am
state walked away with this 1. one 16 to 96. the warriors. now 16 2 on the season still hanging on to the best record in the league. we're going to take on the portland trail blazers tomorrow night at the chase center. >> all right. well, meanwhile, the getting ready to take on the vikings that happens this sunday, both teams are looking to stay in the playoff picture. san francisco's looking for its 3rd straight win and it looks like the niners may have finally turned a corner after beating the rams at home and then dominating the jaguars on the road. the head coach kyle shanahan says the teen can't get complacent. >> have an idea of the other teams are stuff like that going into it. but no, i think they've been battling back to the season just like we have 2 teams are probably playing better ball of the year right now and so i think our players are very well aware of from the film from what they've been doing on their numbers in a bunch areas could be real tough game. >> kickoff for sunday's game is set for one 25 at levi stadium. >> it is 7.51. we'll be right >> it is 7.51. we'll be right back.
