congress, a national ban on abortion is something that they would explore. meanwhile, california leaders are moving forward with efforts to increase abortion access in this state. the state senate appropriations committee today move forward with a bill that was set up a fund to help low income people, access abortion in california. the bill would also require the state's health and human services agency to set up a website with information on abortion services in california. democrats who wrote the bill say it is worth a multi million dollar price tag. but there were some raising concerns about allowing people from out of state to access that money. >> kaye will create a huge national system up into eu and for all. >> the committee put the bill on the suspense file for later consideration. the suspense file is reserved for bills that could cost the state more than $50,000 from the general

jackknifed along interstate 80. the snow caught drivers unprepared, forcing a lot of them to slow down and chain up and they might have to keep doing that. our chief meteorologist lawrence karnow string is here now with a look at the snow that's still coming down the cr right now. yes, a very unusually cold storm rolling, especially this time of year. but here we are looking all that snow rolling into the sierra nevada. of course, the temperatures locally have been very cold. but look at that. >> here's a look at castle peak. that is i-80 folks and you could barely see the road up there with all that snow coming down. haven't seen too many cars going by either. and there may be good reason for that is there's been some noted delays up there in the high country. they're chain your head over the mountains with your trucks on 80 in your chain up everything going up on 50's. so you can see the snow continuing up there this evening, although starting to break up just a little bit now, but it has been a very active day there today and again, likely to see some more snow flakes across the high peaks for tomorrow around the bay area. you can see some pop-up showers outside. that was mainly in the morning and then by the afternoon began to
tail off a bit. i think that may pick up again by tomorrow afternoon. but now the cold air is in place and look at this. we've got freezing temperatures are forecast to our friends to the north expecting of freeze tonight in much of clear lake all the way the men further north in the dark purple. that's going to be a hard freeze. that is going to be several hours and temperatures well below freezing. in fact, these numbers expected all the way down to 22 degrees for overnight low. now it's not to be as cold locally still be chilly outside 30's in the north bay 40's elsewhere around the bay area. all these temperatures running below the average courtesy of this big trough of low pressure. this kind of just camping out. looks like it is going to stick around for at least one more day. maybe some wraparound showers. maybe some lightning, maybe some thunderstorms in the north bay, maybe even a little more hail, too more scattered showers there. the rest, the bay area, just some partly cloudy skies and some chilly temperatures. guys, back to you. lawrence. thank you. ahead, 8 o'clock tonight. russia celebrating victory day
