the house committee investigating the january 6th riot at the capitol has postponed tomorrow's hearing because of technical issues. thursday's hear willing go on as planned, and it will focus on former president trump's efforts to pressure then vice president pence to refuse to certify the election results. yesterday witnesses told the committee that they knew claims about election fraud were false. they say they told the president, but he refused to listen. we talked to south bay congresswoman zoe lofgren who is head of the inquiry about whether the president could one day face criminal charges. >> we haven't really as a committee discussed that yet. and i don't think we would until all the hearings are concluded. you know, it's really entirely up to the department of justice. they are supposed to make their own independent judgment of whether a crime is committed and whether they can prove it. so we'll see what they do. >> well, on that note, attorney general merrick garland said he and january 6th prosecutors are watching these hearings. representative lofgren has helped investigate plenty of
allegations of presidential misconduct in her career, including watergate and president trump's impeachment. we also talked to her about her fellow eight question member, including the only two republicans. >> so there has been a unity here that you don't always see on congressional committees. we're not sniping at each other. we're trying to find out what happened. >> we posted the full interview with representative lofgren on our website, kpix.com. well, a man suspected of driving under the influence was caught on an officer's dash camera swerving across lanes of traffic and running through intersections. this is from saturday night. the officer says he pulled the driver over after watching him run a red light. during the traffic stop, the officer says he found drugs and a loaded semiautomatic gun. the driver from oakley was booked into jail in martinez. and north bay rescue teams called out the save a horse and a driver after an accident that left them trapped in a pickup and a horse trailer. this is a tricky one.
the horse had to be cut free after adobe road and petaluma. the sonoma county animal rescue team was called in. they gave the horse sedative so it wouldn't panic during the hour-long rescue. >> the entire creek bed from one side to the other. and the truck and trailer landed on the south side of that dry creek bed. significant damage to the tow truck itself and to the trailer. and the crews had to actually cut the trailer side door a little larger to get the horse out. >> after being led away, the horse was checked out. the good news, the horse only had minor scratches to his face and legs. that driver was taken to a local hospital. some pretty wild new video of a moment fast-moving floodwaters swept away an entire house in montana near yellowstone. the house sunk into the rushing water and it was pulled downstream. record floodwaters are walking out roads and bridges in wyoming
and montana, closing down all entrances to yellowstone and forcing 10,000 people to evacuate from the park. and drone video shows devastation in another montana community, homes almost submerged in muddy floodwaters. the rushing river washing out more roads in that area. the damage caused by rain and snow melt that has been causing river there's to swell. >> you see on social media, floodwaters taking out a bridge in yellowstone. it's pretty crazy. >> atmospheric rivers actually. they came into the pacific northwest about three days ago. if you even heard about that. very few people did. but then it continued over into montana. that's what it resulted in. so here at home, we were talking than grass fire in san jose earlier. there is a minor air quality issue from that if you're down in the south bay. so i want to start off with that. and we're going to go to that map that takes advantage of all of those low cost air quality sensors. purple air. when is the last time you heard that referenced? probably during the last fire season when we were all glued to tracking what particulate matter was like.
well, it's time to start getting reoriented for that because we're fast approaching that time of year where that's going to come up. today we're doing okay. most of the air quality sensors for the south bay are green. we're looking pretty good. but a little pattern here. look at the yellow right down here. see how there a is a whole string of them? that grass fire over coyote creek was just over the boarder in milpitas. they've got it pretty much under control now. but the northerly winds coming out of the north were pushing that smoke to the south. if you're smelling smoke down there, that's what it is. it should get a lot better over the next few hours. meanwhile, it just looks hazy in general bay area wide. this is the view from the mountains on the west side of santa clara valley. we're looking north. you can see the grassy hills of stanford, san mateo. if you have good eyesight, downtown san francisco. high pressure is holding that stuff in the air. we're not able to circulate it or clear it out. we're also warming up because high pressure is push do you think on the surface. we're 10 degrees warmer today in san jose than yesterday. concord is 8 degrees warmer. 7 degrees warmer in livermore.
haven't gotten the official daytime highs yet. we'll look at that coming up in the next half hour. but that's pretty much where they sit at this point. we made it to about 90 in concord today. take those numbers and add just a little bit more on top of this for tomorrow. so tomorrow concord, you go to 91. these interest daytime highs now looking ahead to wednesday. and wednesday actually is the warmest day of the whole seven-day forecast. a little warmer than today. and then we're going get a dramatic cooldown right after this. if you take look at what is going on in the perfect, there is another storm going into the pacific northwest. that one's not an atmospheric river. we don't get any rain out of it either. but look at the shape of this thing that is a very deep trough. can you see the outline of the clouds? weak little cold front. you see it when we watch the futurecast tomorrow night into thursday. see that line? that's a cold front. that's going weep through the bay area wednesday night into thursday. and you can see the impact that's going to have on temperatures. we're 10 to 15 degrees above average tomorrow. and then by thursday, we fall
down about 10 to 15 degrees below average. sounds dramatic, but i'll show you what it looks like in the seven-day in one second. after low 90s tomorrow, low 70s. and it gets windy too. watch the onshore winds turn on. that's thursday. wednesday night into thursday. so it will get noticeably breezy around here as well. as we typically would, any time you get a cold front that comes through. here is what it looks like in the seven-day. san jose near 90 tomorrow. only 78 for the daytime high on thursday. 72 on friday. and then as we head towards father's day on sunday, we're starting to warm back up again. nothing major. probably about as warm as today was. you can handle today. it's considering where we were friday when we were low hundreds. there is the microclimates. look at that drop. inland valleys. low 90s tomorrow when we're at the warmest day of the week. low 70s by friday. and then we get into the weekend, and you do start to warm up bit. we've got father's day on there. and you can see the numbers go up. but you got outdoor plans on
father's day? keep them. it's going to be a great day actually. a little warmer by next week. >> roller coaster there. >> we've been doing that actually. we did that last week. we're going to do it again this week. >> all right, darren, thank you so much. >> you bet. still ahead, children over six have a new option when it comes to the covid vaccine. we look ahead to the critical hearing tomorrow over shots for younger kids. plus new warning about a popular rocker for babies and toddlers. what parents need know. and coming up on a streaming service, "cbs news bay area," we take a look at how summer is changing in the bay area on this week's weather extra. you can watch our stream wherever, whenever, just find us on pluto tv, channel 1021
