frank somerville. and i'm julie julie haener. we have been seeing some strong, gusty winds all across the bay area this afternoon. here's what it looked like in back a bill where you can see tree branches were swaying in the wind. if you were out on the roads, maybe you felt your car being pushed around a little. those dry offshore winds are raising more concerned now about wildfires. all right, here's a live look from a camera on our rooftop of our studios here in jack london square. those flags are in jack london square. you can see them still blowing out there in the wind. can you ever and this morning pgd started targeting power shutoffs aimed at preventing wildfires caused by their electrical equipment about 25,000 customers affected in northern california. the outages are indicated by the purple triangles on the map there in the bay area. they're mostly in napa, solano county were more than. 7000 customers are in the dark. 87 customers had their electricity turned off in northern sonoma county in about 700 contra costa and alameda county's pg and e says
5:01 pm
it could give the all clear later tonight, depending on the conditions and with more on those conditions, so let's check in with our chief meteorologist. bill martin bill? yes definitely. the winds were up the last couple hours or so last 10 hours. the winds have really been going. some of the wind gusts we've seen up in the higher peaks up over 50 miles an hour. we've got 47 on the top of mount tamil pius today. altamont past 43. i think what's unique about this weather offshore wind event is the direction there's a lot of north in this wind. and so we're saying some of the strongest winds in the central valley and we're seeing big winds down at sea level. so like mount diablo came in at 49 miles an hour almost 50 miles an hour, but some of the surface winds out around back of ill fairfield and davis those numbers are up around 50 miles an hour as well, so just a different kind of wind direction. normally we're northeast were more northerly. so it's funneling down the central valley, the wind advisory says, in effect until about eight o'clock tonight. okay and then that's going to be changed, so it's going to drop and then we're gonna be stuck with that red flag warning that last three tours
5:02 pm
tuesday, but as those wednesday down, so does the fire danger. the red flag warning will be a red flag warning, but it's not going to be as robust and red flag warning because the winds will be significantly less and i think, especially tonight i think tonight we're going to see winds. drop off quite a bit from where they were this afternoon. i think their peak was this afternoon, so the strong winds continue. it's going to be windy and dry as we head into the next 24 hours. so now when kind of takes a back seat. fire danger takes a up front seat. i have seen a couple reports of small fires. there's one to just started about an hour ago, up around the galia outside on college hill by sterling city that's out of paradise. small fire, and then i saw another fire when i see that one gosh, there was. often i'll find i'll dig around for that one. so there are a couple fires have popped up and we'll keep you posted on that as well. all right we'll see in a bit, bill. thank you. well, the strong winds and increased fire risk cab emergency officials on high alert. like other areas, san francisco could see some down trees and power lines. ktvu christien kafton joins us now

5:07 pm
blame large and excessive cancellations on staffing shortages. that caused it to reduce its schedule for fewer flights while air travel demand was soaring and continues to build its tied into a lot of the bigger picture issues we're having with the national economy. daniel byrne ham is operations director at scott's cheap flights .com, a free online worldwide booking service. with some two million paying members, probably southwest contention that this began as a weather delay, you know, probably true, but i think it's significantly compounded by the fact that it's difficult to rehire lot of skilled employees. you know both airports and airlines. this weekend. american and spirit also had some cancellations. but in the low single digits tiny in comparison to southwest. earlier in the summer, delta had a huge issue just a few months back. but now comes the acid test for every airline and that as a test is called the holidays reporting live tom vacar ktvu fox two news you had better call ahead. okay, tom, thank you for that live
