12:08 pm
follow 7. want to get you a check of your 4 zone forecast. taking a live look cross at the north bay looking at the golden gate bridge. everything's sitting pretty afternoon. we had another chilly start to the day, though, kylie? yeah, i know i had to do it. i got to these temperatures again because i think anybody in our interior valleys re you felt this this morning, sonoma, just 30 degrees this morning. same story in santa rosa and napa. >> 31 in rohnert park. 34 in concord and walnut creek. so good morning to you. good afternoon. now we finally warmed up a little bit. wind is relatively calm right now. you can see but notice we've got to fairfield about 21 miles per hour wind and the direction of it is coming from the north. so a little bit of a north northeasterly flows are going to see with a little offshore wind as we get into the afternoon and evening today. but it is just gorgeous out there. no doubt about it. we're going to be a little bit warmer, courtesy of some of that offshore flow as well. so that's why you see spots like santa rosa already at 67 degrees. right now. we're still in the 50's in san francisco, oakland, san jose
12:09 pm
livermore go into those low 60's. but we'll see those temperatures pop up a few degrees more than they have in the last few days. and the reason we're getting this offshore wind is because we've got this high pressure and low pressure kind of stacked here. you can see that clockwise circulation at high pressure counter clockwise on low pressure. wind gets driven right between them. that's what happened. so that's what we're going to see. so we look at future wind just to show you this. we're expecting that things will kick up a little bit as we get into this evening. so they're 07:45pm. you notice that the north and the east bay are really where we're going to see this. and most of it's going to be up at the peaks. but some of it could mix down in the valleys. and certainly you can see that in sonoma as we get into the overnight hours before things start to calm down. i'll be back in just a little bit. we'll talk about our extended forecast and a slight very slight chance of rain in the 7 day forecast. back to you. keeping fingers crossed for that one. thanks. kyla. the balance of power on capitol hill. still up in the air. but getting a little clearer now, the republican party only needs. >> one more house seat to take control of the house of representatives. minority leader kevin mccarthy appeared

before gop colleagues for a secret ballot election today as the first step and formally electing him. house speaker. if the gop does, in fact, take the house. meantime, congressional democrats are doing everything they can to pass legislation before the year washington correspondent trevor shirley taking a closer look at a top issue for democrats protecting marriage rights for same and interracial couples. it would also protect that right from any future rulings by the supreme court. and senate democrats who authored this legislation say at this point they think they've got enough backing from republicans to get this bill passed. >> you may recall the same bill came up for debate earlier this fall but was shelved until after the midterms. now, the bill's authors say they've got enough buy-in from republicans to break that 60 vote threshold needed to pass legislation in the senate tomorrow. the senate will likely hold a test vote that will give us a better indication as to just how much support is officially
12:11 pm
there. the respect for marriage act is this legislation is would ensure the supreme court cannot overturn the right of same and interracial couples to marry which conservative justice clarence thomas mention was a possibility when the court overturned roe versus wade earlier this year. the legislation also clarifies the government won't recognize polygamous marriages and that it respects religious freedom to major sticking points for republicans. again, that senate vote could come as early as wednesday. we determined that this legislation was too important to risk failure. >> so we waited to get bipartisanship. a chance. i hope for the sake of tens of millions of americans that at least 10 republicans will vote with us to protect marriage equality into law. soon. the rights and dignity of millions of americans depend on it. >> now the house already passed its version of this bill with the support of nearly 50 republicans. it's expected this legislation passes the senate. it will
12:12 pm
then be on a glide path to the president's desk reporting in washington. i'm trevor shirley. >> well, united nations says the world's population hit to the 8 billion mark today, but it's according to a report released over the summer, the un's day of 8 billion is more symbolic than purse. ice officials say this should be a wake-up call for the world. the upward trend threatens to leave even more people further behind as governments are struggling to provide enough classrooms and jobs for a rapidly growing number of youth. the world's population now projected to reach around 8.5 billion by 2030, and 9.7 billion by the year 2050. we've got a lot to get to today. coming up. >> reports that russian missiles have struck pole. and what we know so far as the war in ukraine spills past the border. plus, california's first lady taking the stand in the ongoing assault case

12:15 pm
>> in international news this afternoon, russia pounded ukraine's energy facilities today and officials in ukraine are saying the situation is critical. a barrage of airstrikes caused emergency
12:16 pm
blackouts all across that country. meanwhile, u.s. officials said missiles crossed into nato member, poland, where 2 people were killed. the polish prime minister calling for an emergency meeting with his ministers over what's being called a crisis situation. polish media reporting the projectile struck a polish village near the border with ukraine. so let's game says russia fired at least 85 missiles today and officials are calling it the most massive bombardment of power facilities since the war began. the un human rights office is calling on iran is government to immediately release thousands of people who have been detained for participating in peaceful protests. the call comes as one protester was sentenced to death amid continued unrest in the country. that protester was charged with setting fire to a government building the office now cautioning iran can only issue the death penalty for the most serious crimes under international law, at
12:17 pm
least 10 protesters have been charged with offenses that carry the death penalty. there. the widespread unrest was sparked by the death of a 22 year-old woman in police custody for allegedly violating the country's strict dress code. former president donald trump's expected to announce his 3rd run for the white house from his mar-a-lago resort today. however, some question whether it's a good idea, given the gop is worse than expected performance in the mid terms, brooke shafer has that story. former president donald trump has teased another run for office pretty much from the moment he left. >> today at mar-a-lago, the former president set to make a major announcement on his social media site. truth, social trump writing, quote, hopefully it will turn out to be one of the most important days in the history of our country. trump said this in an exclusive news nation interview last week. i think people are going to be. >> very happy. very impressed.
12:18 pm
we've done a good job. there's no question. trump has a loyal base, but it's not without cracks that the president's words reckless. actions were reckless. president's words that day at the rally endangered me and my family and everyone at the capitol building in a new interview, trump's former vice president mike pence in his strongest words yet condemning trump's actions on january 6 and lies about the 2020 election. a september poll found more than 6 in 10 americans don't want trump to run for president again, those numbers on top of a somewhat disappointing midterm election for republicans and trump backed candidates and there is already speculation about a possible trump challenger in florida governor ron desantis. i think the republicans are going to have a really hard time in this is that this is the big issue. do we rally around trump? is our person going into 2024 or do we see a split in the republican party? a really contentious primary, a primary that if trump wins,
12:19 pm
you lose part of the electorate that has no interest in really turning out for him and essentially handing the white house over to the democrats in 2024. >> that was brooke shafer reporting for us this afternoon. trump is expected to make that announcement at maralago tonight. 6 o'clock our time. meantime, a big development in the arizona race for governor that had the attention of the entire country. democrat katie hobbs projected to be the next governor of arizona right now, hobbs holding on to a 20,000 vote advantage over republican kari lake. she trump backed election deny or who has already called the vote into question. she in fact, she was casting doubt over arizona's election process even before they started counting the votes. it's not clear if she'll concede or she will try to go to the court to fight the results. want to get your check of that forecast. taking a live look outside at coit tower. nice blue skies again today. i feel like we're kind of in a copy paste mode from
12:20 pm
kyla. yeah, a little bit only we'll see temperatures get a little bit warmer today. get a little closer to where we should we've had such that. >> cool air mass in place that kept us below average. so today we'll see those temperatures pump up just a touch. a beautiful day out there, a breezy afternoon for those in the north and east bay as possible as we've got some wind up at the peaks. and tonight, mostly clear skies. but again, that's where we'll see some of that wind is going to be offshore. winds start to roll. so we'll talk about that in a second. and a very slight chance of rain next week. still very slate. i don't know. it's not looking t o good, but i'll show you what i can see. here's where the wind is right now. pretty calm but notice fairfield's got 21 miles per hour gusts right now. and that's coming from the north. also just want to point out our relative humidity levels are pretty low. so that's why, you know, we're really happy. we got that rain. and because outside of that, i'd be really concerned for fire. danger is just a heads up, even though we're going to be okay with you want to be careful this time of year and every time of year help our firefighters out high pressure and low pressure. what happens is when those come together, you get a gradient and it squeezes the wind right through between them. and that creates a
12:21 pm
little bit of that offshore wind. so we're going to see that up in our peaks. mostly. but some of that could mix down to the valley. so we don't have any watches or warnings for wind or for fire. unfortunately, our friends in southern california have a red flag warning going into effect as we get into tomorrow morning throughout the day because they do those santa anas are going to be blowing. and unfortunately they're not in the same circumstance that we are with our fuels being not quite so dry. but today, beautiful out there. as we take a live look at half moon bay and then to get a little closer to normal. and so you can see san francisco expecting low 60's oakland, 64, but we'll get to those mid to upper 60's and even 70 degrees up in santa rosa. so that would actually take a slightly above average rates. been a while since we've seen that in our extended forecast, i told you we have that very outside chance of a few showers. that would be next monday. so keep an eye on that a little too far away right now to kind of commit to that happening. and it looks like it's one of those systems that could hold together or could fall apart. so, you know, nothing to write home about on that. but it's good to see at least we're getting that pattern going where we see another system on the horizon.
12:22 pm
so we'll see how it goes. but maybe we'll get a little thankful. thanksgiving rain. we'll see one. we always like to thank mother nature. thanks, kyla. still ahead, some south bay voters upset after midterm ballots were found. >> on the side of the road county voting officials say it's not their fault. plus the case against disgraced movie mogul harvey weinstein continues. jennifer seibel newsom is the latest high-profile witness.
