it's also burned at least one building. the smoke from the blaze could be seen across the tri valley and into the south bay. it's also causing poor air quality. more smoke is expected through the weekend. that leads us to our weather conditions. specifically the wind and the rain. meteorologist rob mayeda is in the weather center. >> right now we're watching winds very closely, raj. we're starting to see a little bit of a pattern shift we hope that will start to push more of that smoke away from the bay area. throughout the day today we've seen the smoke into san jose and up and down the tri valley. within the last three hours or so, notice the direction of those arrows reflecting a westerly wind instead of the offshore northeast wind that pumped all the smoke across the bay area for the first half of today. so tonight, we'll still see some patches of smoke. i think out toward the tri valley around the 680 corridor,corridor, livermore. temperatures in the 40s and 50s and a stronger westerly wind taking shape tomorrow that hints at changes come sunday, changes which may involve needing an umbrella, especially around san

stockpiles. if the united states and russia warn if syria fails to adhere to the terms of the resolution, it would face consequence. russia said those would depend on the passage of another council resolution. it's a phone call that could mark the beginning of the end of tensions between the u.s. and iran. president obama called iranian president hassan rowhani today. during that 15-minute conversation they agreed to work toward resolving the dispute over iran's nuclear program. it's a call three decades in the making. the last direct communication between the leaders of iran and the u.s. was in 1979 during the tehran hostage crisis. new tonight at 11:00, art is not imitating life. according to a new study, the lgbt community in hollywood is being mistreated. the study says despite the wide range of lgbt roles on screen, more than half of actors think directors and producers are biased against them. only 16% of those actors would respond say they have experienced discrimination firsthand.
