3:17 pm

3:18 pm
someone like lisa murkowski who's representative or state for a good, long time and has really high name recognition there. that's a difficult person to unseat. >> and former president trump reacted to changes loss on his own social media platform, calling it, quote, a wonderful result for america. for now live in washington, i'm anna wiernicki. back to you. >> so and is there any indication how much influence the former president is going to have over voters when it comes to elections in november. >> well, right now, former president trump has a strong hold on the republican party base and that peace is what really determines the outcome in these primary elections. but when we did speak with political experts earlier today, they were hesitant to say if that influence would carry over through november the sea. that has a lot to do with the fact that there will be a higher vote voter turnout this november and a lot of moderate voters will have a chance to weigh in. obviously a lot can change over the next 3 months. and as of right now,
3:19 pm
it is very clear that the former president is still pulling strings behind the scenes. >> anna wiernicki live for us in washington. thank you so much. rudy giuliani has testified before a grand jury in atlanta as part of an investigation into whether former president trump and his allies tried to overturn the 2020 election results in georgia, the former new york mayor spent about 6 hours answering questions behind closed doors and then left the courthouse without answering any questions from reporters, both giuliani and trump have denied any wrongdoing. republican senator lindsey graham has also been ordered to testify as part of the investigation, though he is fighting that subpoena in court right now. and right now we'll talk about our forecast as we take this live look outside across a foggy shot of the golden gate bridge. wow. what a difference a day makes you this time yesterday we were sweating it out. it was so hot, but the temperatures have dropped dramatically. our meteorologist kyla grogan is here now with how much of a difference we're seeing in the past. 24 hours there today.

3:21 pm
going to looking out for the next few hours. high pressure has started this party, if you will, with the monsoonal moisture rolling in and interacting with another low pressure system. and that has been giving us those thunderstorms that have been kicking off. but tomorrow temperatures are going to be a little bit better than today. so you see no triple digits on the map. we will see low 90's in our inland east bay. but 68 in san francisco, 86 in nevado about 86 in san jose. not a bad looking forecast. a quick look at your sunday forecast shows talking about we head towards that weekend as we get into those 80's inland sunday into monday. just see back to you. all right. thousands of mental health workers, but kaiser permit permanente are on there. >> 3rd day of the strike after contract talks fell through over the weekend. they are calling for higher wages, more staff, an additional time for patient care. the workers say the job has become unmanageable with sky high case loads and no staff to match that demand. kaiser says it is committed to reaching a deal but that the strike may force the company to cancel non-emergency appointments.
