7:10 am
got there. we have much more ahead on "today in the bay." coming up, we take you live to washington for our weekly interview with chuck todd for a preview of this week's "meet the press."
7:11 am
i didn't have to shout out for help. because you didn't have another dvt. not today. one blood clot puts you at risk of having another, so we chose xarelto®, to help keep you protected. xarelto® is proven to treat and reduce the risk of dvt or pe blood clots from happening again. almost 98% of people did not have another dvt or pe. don't stop taking xarelto® without talking to your doctor, as this may increase risk of blood clots. while taking, a spinal injection increases risk of blood clots, which may cause paralysis. you may bruise more easily or take longer to stop bleeding. xarelto® can cause serious and in rare cases, fatal bleeding. it may increase your bleeding risk if you take certain medicines. get help right away for unexpected bleeding or unusual bruising. don't take xarelto® if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. tell your doctor about all planned medical or dental procedures
7:12 am
and any kidney or liver problems. help protect yourself from another dvt or pe. ask your doctor about xarelto®. to learn more about cost, visit or call 1-888-xarelto welcome back, it's time for our weekly discussion with chuck todd, moderator of "meet the press." >> thank you, kira. >> was there discussion about president biden's talk with vladimir putin, russia's military buildup and where that leaves our military in regards to ukraine? >> kira, that was the entire discussion. we stuck to everything having to do with russia, ukraine, putin. you know, we have been sort
7:13 am
of -- we're now seven years since putin took crimea. seven years of sanctions, and seven years of punishment, and seven years of threats and none of it detoured putin from amassing more troops on the border of ukraine. it's pretty clear our posture is to do everything we can diplomatically, and it's clear the europeans don't want to do what we are willing to do when it comes to russia, whether it's to shut off the pipeline completely, and the secretary of state says that's potential -- we're eventually negotiating with him after he has taken the hostage and holding a gun to their head, and there's a lot of
7:14 am
questions there whether this is an effective strategy on that front, and we need the essentially rally europeans to take a tougher stance against russia. >> that will be interesting to watch. i want to ask you quickly, you got to talk to the governor of kentucky, and i am not sure if that interview was scheduled before the catastrophic tornadoes hit kentucky. >> right. >> how are they doing? >> well, we were actually going covid. kentucky has had an 85% spike, and he had to declare a state of emergency because of the nursing shortage, and then this happened. this is the worst -- it appears to be, perhaps going onrecord as the worst tornado when it comes to fatalities. think about this.
7:15 am
i know on the west coast, tornadoes are not as a well known phenomenon out there. march, april, may, the beginning of spring, as we are getting into summer, this coming in december is very unusual and we had some very unusual warm air, and la nina, you throw it in there and here's where we are. it's pretty devastating. they have all the resources, and hopefully they will have more survivors today. >> yeah, even california is sending people to help with the search and rescue. our hearts go out to them. we look forward to seeing you at 8:00, chuck. we hope you join chuck for this morning's "meet the press." he has that exclusive interview with anthony blinken, and andy bashir and give some insight on how the state is doing following the deadly tornadoes. my gosh.

7:18 am
>> that event helps to keep them in the black. mr. and mrs. clause visited families with the students from the school were given toys, turkeys and a $50 gift card to target. it was along with help from second harvest food bank that helped with the turkeys. time to check in with vianey arana for the microclimate forecast. we have wind advisories and a little rain hitting parts of the bay area already, and it's just going to get worst as the day goes on. is that right? >> exactly. that's the reason why we are under a microclimate weather alert to get you prepared for what is to come so you can know what to expect in your area. we are already seeing rain out
7:19 am
there. i want to give you a look at the satellite radar. look at snow there coming down. if i zoom this in closer using our mobile doppler storm ranger, you can see we had rain move in to parts of the north bay, but we are getting light rain right now in san francisco, and starting to move down into the san josé area. this is expected to intensify with the next couple of hours. in addition to more rain, we also have more wind. if you are worried about the time stamp, it's right up here. notice what happens as this pushes further down, right into the overnight hours into monday morning, it creates a bullseye over the santa cruz mountains. it's really going to start coming down tonight into early monday morning in the santa cruz area, and it looks like this could stall out quite a bit over the santa cruz mountains. a dangerous commute expected for
7:20 am
tomorrow. this will carry over into monday. as far as how much rain we are expected to get, i want to give you an outlook of the one-week rainfall totals. we see that rain shadow down to the south bay, four inches, and several inches up to the north bay especially for the coastal mountain areas, and that's rain totals for the week. in addition to the rain, we're worried about the wind. 40 plus-mile-per-hour winds gusting into the south bay and that is why the wind advisory will take effect at 4:00 through tomorrow morning. be sure and stay ready and stay vigilant. not a good time to drive up to the sierra. potentially upwards of 90 inches of snow expected out of this storm, gusting winds and also headed into monday, as the cold front passes through with the cold air, we could see local snow on top of the bay area
7:21 am
mountains. i want to take this opportunity to explain what is a atmospheric river. it's a long narrow flow of tropical air that brings about 50% of the rainfall. think about it as a river in the sky. it has a lot to do with climate change. they may be longer and wider with 50% more rain, and how does this impact us? the big changes in that is there could be a higher change of larger swings from drought to flooding. we have been in extreme drought in california for quite sometime, and it's having an impact on how we see the rain here and how much or how often or how not often these impacts comes to the area. the next several days, we will have active rainfall totals through wednesday, and we will get a cold air blast heading into sunday and monday, and then the storm really making its

7:49 am
it's 7:48. just last week the u.s. supreme court decided opponents of a new texas abortion law could challenge the legality in court, and the texas law would end a woman's right to choose after six weeks. nbc bay area political analysts, larry gerston joins us this morning. good to see you. what is the significance of how this all plays out for texas? >> good morning, kira. texas, and maybe the whole country, actually. we have to go back to roe v. wade for a second, and in that decision the supreme court said the woman has a right to privacy, and that is implied in the constitution, and she has a right to choose when she wants to have an abortion, should she decide to do that. 23 weeks was the limit the court set, approximately.
7:50 am
this court is saying we don't know that the constitution says that, we don't see that. we see it plainly speaking. if there is no right to privacy in the constitution, then it's up to the states to decide. if the texas decision goes as many of us think, that in fact, it will be upheld, 26 states are ready to move forward with similar legislation, and ten of them saying conception begins immediately, which means no abortion whatsoever. >> if states are left to write their own abortion laws state by state, where does california fit in to all of that? >> you had a nice graph a second ago, kira, and you are right on the money with this thing. we see that california is very, very different than texas. in california, overwhelmingly people believe in the right of a woman to choose and if you look
7:51 am
nationally, it's almost equally divided. 54% say yes, and 46% say no when it comes to upholding roe v. wade. and even republicans agree. you are talking about a very different approach to abortion and a woman's right to choose in california, and one that is not likely to change. >> it's safe to assume, i would assume, the state legislature will not be changing abortion laws here? that's a lot of abortions. >> yes, and more. and i will tell you why. the california governor, newsom, and the leaders in the legislature, now are considering a law to make california a sanctuary state for women who want an abortion. imagine that, just like we do with immigration. if in this law, if it takes place, the state would fund
7:52 am
women, poor women that want to come and get an abortion. people in this state are very pro choice. the question is how will they feel about the legislature that would decide to go ahead and fund people that want to come here to california. that may be a bit more controversial than people might expect. >> thank you, larry, for all that this morning. we appreciate seeing you. up next, we have a quick look at the stories we are following including the push for new legislation to allow private citizens in california to sue people who make or sell assault weapons. welcome back.
7:53 am
7:54 am
