to abc news that fbi agents raided his mar-a-lago resort on monday. trump announced his florida estate including a safe had been rated by federal authorities. the circumstances of the search were not immediately clear but sources tell abc news the search was in relation to those 15 boxes of documents that trump brought with him to mar-a-lago after he left the white house. some of which the national archives said were marked classified. in february, the national archives confirmed they had received 15 boxes that were improperly removed from the white house when trump left office. the archivist said representatives were continuing to search for more records that may have been improperly removed from the white house. monday's search marks a dramatic escalation in law enforcement scrutiny of trump. a separate investigation is looking into his efforts to overturn the 2020 presidential election and his actions during the january 6 attack on the u.s. capitol. in response to the raid, trump
saying his home is "currently under siege, rated and occupied by a large group of fbi agent's," and said agents even "broke into my safe." trump was in trump tower, not at mar-a-lago, at the time of the raid. the fbi's activities at trump's compound are court authorized. that means the fbi would have had to present evidence to a federal judge and they have probable cause that a crime or crimes have been committed. the fbi and justice department declining to comment. >> it is actually not that easy, especially given who the target of the investigation is. therefore, we know that some judge out there in the southern district of florida found that there may be evidence of a crime existing at trump's residence. >> morgan norwood, abc news, los angeles. dan: we sent out this notification as soon as the news broke about the search. if you want breaking news

sevenonyourside to share your story. it has been a dry day in the bay area but some parts of california are seeing wild weather area ama: mike nicco is here with the forecast but begins with dangerous flooding in palm springs. mike: last week, it was death valley, national park. today, it was palm springs. the aerial tramway, at least the road to it, washed out by a storm that only lasted about an hour to 1.5 hours and it kept the largest rotating tram at bay while the visitors were kind of stuck. they could not get out. at least, they were able to come back down the mountain but they could not get past that because of the road being washed out. tram was shut down for the rest of the day and they are going to inspect it before they open it again. here is what happened, a look at where the aerial tramway is from the coachella valley all the way up to near the peak of the mountains. between 3:00 and 5:15, one
thunderstorm dropped a huge amount of rain. 1.5 inches of rain. when the ground is so dry and so hard, it can absorb all that rain so most of it runs off in the loose dirt and sediment on top of that. very hard ground, rolls on with it and that is why we had an issue there. not nearly as bad as the one in death valley. we are seeing those continue to happen in california. the greatest activity is to the east of redding, heading up to the north, and that will continue for the next hour or so and then kind of fall apart during the overnight hours. we will wake up at 9:00 tomorrow. let's go down to palm springs for you can see early activity as we get to moderate to high probability of lightning strikes and then you can see all up and down the spine of the sierra, that will fire up during the afternoon hours with the heaviest during the evening hours in the high desert once again but once we lose the heating of the day, it goes away. back here at home, we are watching the marine layer trying to reestablish some cloud cover and move it back to the east. it will be partly cloudy the farther inland you are tomorrow
morning. mostly cloudy as we get closer to the coast. it will be comfy just about everywhere with minor inland warming. that weekend will be just a touch warmer than it was, the weekend we said goodbye to you that felt so great to be outside. i want to show you this neat feature that has been with us for the better part of a month or so, this dry patch of about 3000 miles from just west all the way to us and it is keeping any of those hurricanes that are popping up near baja california from making it to us so in that respect, it is doing some good. for us, it will bring more sunshine after you can see partly cloudy conditions night, mid 50's to low 60's. let's go down to the south bay. low 80's had a few upper 70's and most of it. made --s for the peninsula and mid to upper 60's along the coast to near 69 in downtown. tour the north bay temperatures around 77 to 82 degrees. with good air quality in the east bay, how about 72 at berkeley, 70 or in hayward, 77
in union city, and low to mid 80's as you head into the east bay. here is a look at what is going to happen tomorrow, and you can see a lot of sunshine even after the coast. breezes will kick in in the afternoon hours and make it feel pretty comfortable. tomorrow is our coolest day in the forecast. just warmer weather friday, saturday, sunday. low to mid 90's inland. nothing extreme in the seven-day forecast. dan: thanks.
