4:01 am
was completely sunny. so it all just depending on where you were yesterday for sure, you can see outside this morning that we do have clear skies right over the east bay here. and that's something that is actually going to continue today. today we're drying things back out so that potential of rain, thunderstorms, anything like that is really, really out of the picture for your wednesday ahead of us. and you can see that all the way up into the sierra to which saw some additional snow yesterday. so we're off to a clear start on what is going to be our first consistently clear day of this forecast. now, temperatures right now are pretty chilly. we're in the 40's for most of us. fairfax petaluma santa rosa, saint helene and napa in fairfield among spots that are down in the 30's. we're yet again cold enough that we have some freeze warnings and frost advisories in effect up in the lake and mendocino counties through 08:00am this morning. as for winds, it is a calmer start to the morning. winds will pick up this afternoon. another breezy day as expected. likely not as windy as yesterday, though. i will be talking all the changes that this forecast is offering

4:03 am
health protection act. a bill that would federally protect abortion services. the vote is in response to a league supreme court draft opinion that indicated the court is poised to overturn roe v wade. this is a giant step backwards in the rights of women and the rights of americans. nevada. senator jacky rosen says the potential decision by the high court could cost lives. women are understandably scared and they're angry and this threat against our rights is horrific. >> republicans on the other hand, don't see it as a danger and consider it a victory for the anti abortion rights movement. >> this particular measure the democrats have today is particularly radical. >> senate republican leader mitch mcconnell and texas senator john cornyn say the democrats bill goes too far. this wouldn't just impact pro. life red states. this change is so radical that would
4:04 am
invalidate existing laws and blue states as well. and this issue has caused quite the scene outside of the homes of supreme court justices. last night the senate passed a bill to increase funding for their protection reporting in washington. reshad hudson, back to you. >> and home california. democrats are concerned about how the supreme court's potential decisionrcould impact people of color. the california women's legislative caucus says women of color would be disproportionately impacted by roe v wade. if it's over, turned that's why they're urging lawmakers to move forward and faster with proposed abortion protection bills. now more than a dozen bills moving through the legislature that would protect reproductive rights and expand access to abortion. some republican state lawmakers say california democrats politicizing the issue. >> if this week's supreme court were, in fact become final, they would literally have no impact on california.

4:06 am
with suspects and criminals. the ordinance prohibits the manufacturing transferring assembly distribution and sale of ghost guns frames and receivers >> but the measure takes it a step further by also prohibiting possession of unserialized ghost guns and their parts. some parts of the ordinance are some way redundant with state law. >> other parts are filling a gap before federal law takes effect. the 3rd related to the possession of unfinished frames and receivers is different, but it's it's not something new. innovation. these other cities have done it as well. and if this state law that currently being contemplated in the capital passes, we're basically just going another gap. however, leaders expressed concern that under current city law police are not able to cesar impound ghost guns. if we can get legislation through the state. >> that. prohibits the
4:07 am
possession. >> and the family were prohibiting the possession. items become contraband and we can them right? >> generally, i think that would be correct. according to a city memo, ghost guns accounted for. 25 to 50% of firearms recovered at crime scenes in california during an 18 month period in 2020 in 2021. in santa clara county, the number of ghost guns recovered at crime scenes increased by nearly 72% between 2015 in 2021, nearly all community members were on board with the ordinance tuesday night as a way to reduce gun violence. however, a couple people questioned its effectiveness. it bothers me that the city council spends time on something like this. >> that will actually not prevent any violence whatsoever in san jose taylor kron. 4 news. >> santa cruz police have arrested a 36 year-old man accusing him of attempted to
