tv KTVU FOX 2 News at 4 FOX September 15, 2021 4:00pm-5:00pm PDT
gonna do my best to have their backs as well. today on the four, the governor offers an olive branch to recall backers after defeating the effort by a big margin. newsome excuse me, kept his focus on finding covid-19. in a visit today to the bay area. from ktvu. fox two news. this is the four and welcome everyone to the four this afternoon. i'm heather holmes and i'm alex savage. it was back to work today for governor newsom after surviving california's recall election. this was a clear cut victories, 64% voted no meaning the governor should keep his job. 36% voted yes to the recall, and here is a look now at how the other candidates in the race did. 64% of those who voted yes, on the recall, wanted to see republican larry elder replaced governor newsom, democrat kevin path, breath got 10% of the yes vote, followed by republican kevin faulkner, former san diego mayor was 9%
and southern california democrat brandon ross with 6% our political reporter, greg lee was with the governor for his first post campaign visit to the bay area. today greg the governor's focus remains on the pandemic. yes they're good afternoon, it was the core of newsom's campaign. ain't and the crux of his message today. at a school in oakland governor newsom urged people to get vaccinated, touted his administration's work to get children back to in person learning and acknowledge there's still work to do. in short with the recall behind him, he's focusing on his agenda. it's still a return to business as usual for governor newsom hours after beating back the recall, he visited oakland's melrose leadership academy to tell the states school reopening policies. we want to keep our kids safely back in person instruction. it's critical to get more people back sedated, and it's critical that we have face coverings and masks. the governor also spoke to students about the importance of voting tuesday night, californians voted for him to keep his job that no one recall winning by a landslide. the newsom campaign
nationalized the race, but covid-19 at the center. they got help from national democrats like president biden and used the ground game led by labour groups. millions of personal contacts were made, uh through the course of this election, and, in fact, those personal contacts turned the tide of this election. labor and community leaders celebrated the win and their part in it. for republicans the result doesn't temper any of their frustrations. the state's issues. what's important here is that the problems california faces weren't solved by this selection. homelessness crime, high gas prices, wildfires, we wake up the next day committed not interested in addressing all of these pre existing conditions and challenges that the state faces and doing so head on with the special election behind us, it's hard not to look ahead to the 2022 gubernatorial race. the
california gop i don't really think as as a singular face. candidates have come and gone. it's still a party that needs to focus on presenting solutions to voters instead of just complaining about the democrats. loyola marymount professor jessica levinson says the recall results put the incumbent on a clear path. all of the basics indicate the governor newsom will be able to fight off any challengers who would want to, you know, quote unquote primary him. a lot of that isn't necessarily because people just absolutely adore governor newsom but because of the math. in california and because of the policies that he embraces afternoon if he would run for reelection. no surprise. he said, yes, the message he gave of unity in reaching out to voters who wanted to recall him was a message. former governor gray davis and other strategists had hoped he would deliver regardless of the outcome in studio gregory ktvu box, junior. all right, greg, thank you. in the aftermath of the
special election, many california voters are now wondering whether the recall was a waste of time and hundreds of millions of taxpayer dollars. state lawmakers said today they plan to work on a proposal to change the recall process here in california, ktvu is rob roth spoke with lawmakers today and joins us now from the newsroom with more on their plan. rob alex after tuesday's election some californians are calling for a recall of the recall that appears unlikely, but there could be some changes ahead to the recall per process. one day after governor gavin newsom beat back efforts to recall him to bury a democratic lawmakers say it's time to fix what they say is a broken system. the voters want to see a more democratic process put in place that keeps elected officials accountable. but prevents political gamesmanship of the rules. steve glacier of orinda chairs the california state senate selections committee. on wednesday, he, an assemblyman mark berman of menlo park, announced plans to hold
hearings and craft a new recall process. we absolutely do need recall reform. i think a majority of californians are very frustrated that we just spent $276 million. on this process on this on this recall election, uh, that, from the looks of it has certified what voters said three years ago, it will be up to voters to approve that process in the form of a future ballot measure. any proposed changes have yet to be determined. but one question is whether mere disagreements over policy should be enough to trigger a recall a discussion about whether or not some criminal misconduct malfeasance should be a kind of threshold issue. is something that we're going to discuss. another concern is whether a recall governor should be replaced by someone who gets less than 50% of the vote. there are some who feel like it should be a runoff. there are some who feel, um, make a very compelling argument that the lieutenant governor should simply step forward. if we recall was successful and subject that, uh, that acting governor to an election at a. future date.
newsome and former governor gray davis are the only california governors to face recalls, but there have been 53 other attempts on governor since 1912 attempts that didn't get enough signatures in time to put them on the ballad. david mcewan, political science professor at sonoma state university, questions whether california voters would approve any changes. you want to go with the devil, you know, even though it might be ugly and difficult and problematic, or do you want to go into that great unknown? and that movement into the great unknown gives many voters pause. the lawmakers say they hope to hold hearings beginning in the fall. the voters could get to decide by november 2020 2022 at the earliest. alex still a lot of hurdles to clear before there are any changes to the recall process in our state, rob roth live in the newsroom. rob. thank you. alright, so joining us now for our post election discussion is brian so we'll ktvu political analyst. uh brian news of one, and he won
easily. how does this help him on policy matters and working now with the legislature? well two things to consider heather he won that is that the recall was defeated, but the second part of it, and we heard some of this today is governor newsom's realization that that didn't make a lot of people in california. happier about circumstances in california, and so he's got to kind of play of the middle of the street here. he's got to work on his own, um, popularity. and he had some missteps along the way, but he also has to figure out how to handle some of these very, very big issues in california before the next election, because if you look at some of the recent polling people are not happy about, uh, the circumstances in california for a number of the reasons that were listed in that package. and so that's what governor newsom is having to
deal with. and the olive branch that was was put out there last night by newsome reflects that, brian clearly, though a majority of voters in california seemed to be endorsing governor newsom's covid policies here the vaccine mandates that the mask mandates as well. uh how do you think governor newsom interprets this vote? and what does it, you know? what does it prompt him to do, potentially in terms of potentially other restrictions? how does he look at this moving forward? well i think what happened alex was through the last eight or nine weeks, covid re emerged, ironically, as a very big issue in this campaign in the early days, it was because a lot of people were upset about the mask. mask mandates and things like that. and then i think people got on board and rightly so. the science around all of this and that along with $80 million and other things, and all these high profile national figures coming in to support gavin newsom certainly helped
him and i and it does give him momentum for 2022. i think he was just today. trying to make sure that he had he was showing some humility in the results of the race by reaching out to people who didn't vote for him and there were quite a few. i mean, not not, uh, not the larger number needed to recall them, but there are a lot of people that were unhappy, but it does change covid politics in california in the sense that it gives governor newsom boost in that regard. yes and that was the advice from former governor gray davis. you know, be a little bit humble here. after this victory because we do have the 2022 election. to look forward to. you mentioned that this really boosts newsome chances of victory yes, i well, he's knocked back a recall effort and we listen to the ideas around recall reform that comes out of, uh, you know, 110
years ago initiative, reform and referendum, whicis when they studied california politics and so. the ability to knock back a recall when there are recalls against every governor arnold schwarzenegger, for example, had seven recall it dumps against him. none qualified for the ballot, and that was a guy that had one on a recall, so this is kind of a process and, uh and so we may have to live with it, but i think where governor newsom has an advantage is. he beat back the recall, unlike gray davis, and he can use that marching forward as window. uh wind behind him. yes certainly a selling point for governor newsom moving forward into 2022. so let's talk about who governor do some potentially could face off against and obviously we saw the leading replacement candidate was republican larry elder, you
know, let's look at his performance. he obviously couldn't garner that much support beyond just the conservative base. what do you see his future being? do you see him facing off? against the governor come next year, he may ask jump back into the race, but i think what he learned last night was that he could grab the republican and conservative base in california, but it isn't nearly enough vote to win a gubernatorial race. and so the republicans have to find a candidate who is different as more moderate has an interest in more than one or two issues. that can deliver both an economic program to the state of california. but also is socially aware, um, embraces things like climate change legislation and other things that would make them attractive at person attractive, not just republic, but democrats willing to cross over and the independent. the republicans
cannot come up with that kind of candidate. it doesn't matter whether it's larry elder or john cox. or the former mayor of san diego or anybody else, they have to find somebody else and if we go back to history again, uh gray davis is the only governor in california history to be recalled and he was recalled by arnold schwarzenegger. who was that alternative? yeah that people were looking if absolute that i don't know whether the republicans are going to find anybody that really can challenge newsom in a big way. well, there is a lot of time between now and november of 2022. we'll see what happens. brian so will always appreciate your insight. thank you again. thank you so much. well, now we move on to sonoma county and the district attorney there. jill ravitch has defeated a recall as well and will stay in office. with all of the precincts now reporting 79.5% of voters said no to the recall, while 20.5% of those who voted one ravage removed from office.
now this recall, dr was funded by a developer whose company is accused of abandoning to santa rosa senior care homes during the tubbs fire developer bill gallagher's firm. was prosecuted by the district attorney. for failing to protect those senior residents during that fire back in 2000 and 17. you paid $500,000 to settle the suit after starting the recall campaign ravage has served as district attorney for more than a decade now. she was not immediately available for comment on the outcome of last night's recall election. covid vaccines for children under the age of 12 could be just around the quarter up next, the local county that's already getting ready to set up a vaccine clinic for kids between the ages of five and 11 and two bills. is focusing on alcohol are now awaiting the governor's signature. coming up next more on what they are and how they're expected to help struggling restaurants and it's been a pretty cool and cloudy day in many spots today, but we've got some sunshine in there too. what does the weather hold? as we head towards the weekend? a chance of rain. i'll have details coming up.
to offer covid vaccination clinics for kids ages 5 to 11 years old, the superintendent says in marin county, there are about 21,000 kids in that age group who are part of the next group of americans to become eligible for covid vaccines. marin county has set the weekend of october 30th as the date for the first free vaccine clinics to be offered. they're anticipating the fda will approve the fighter covid vaccine for elementary age students by that time. we think that this will change everything, and it will provide opportunities for our community, larger community and our schools to operate, um, much closer to normal. the superintendent says she understands it may take time for parents to overcome vaccine hesitancy for their younger kids. the county health office will team up with local pediatricians to hold seminars
in english and spanish next month to inform parents about the covid vaccine for kids. county health officials say the goal is to have 75% of the county's elementary age children vaccinated by winter break on the peninsula. millbrae is considering a strict vaccine mandate. the city council is set tonight. to debate a rule requiring people show proof of vaccination for indoor and outdoor restaurants, gyms and entertainment venues now have passed the rule would be the toughest vaccine mandate in san mateo county, and it would go a step further than other bay area cities such as san francisco, which require proof of vaccination only when indoors, governor newsom could soon sign two different bills into law that would permanently relax alcohol rules for restaurants and bars. these are rules that were put in place during the pandemic. one of them would allow businesses to continue offering to go cocktails with some restrictions. those would be the drinks have to be picked up and they can't be delivered to a person's home. and those two
go cocktails also must be sold with food. the second bill would allow restaurants to continue serving alcohol in outdoor spaces and parks slits for more on how these bills could give struggling businesses a boost. we're joined now by laurie thomas, who is the head of the golden gate restaurant association. laurie always appreciate you're taking the time first on the to go drinks legislation. this obviously became a major revenue source for a lot of bars and restaurants across california during the pandemic shutdowns. how much do you think this bill is going to help businesses moving forward if it becomes law? well i think it's a super helpful bill. we're very thankful for senator dodd and the co supporters for taking this on. um why do have to say we're a little disappointed that bars won't be able to continue because it is going to require a bona fide. food license to be able to do that, and also, folks won't be able to order it using third party applications anymore, so we're not sure what kind of effect that's going to have, um,
but you know, it's a step in the right direction. yeah, let me ask you about that fact that customers moving forward, assuming the governor signs this legislation, customers can't have those drinks delivered anymore. by by the third parties, the uber eats or the grub hubs of the world, so that means they have to come down to the restaurant and pick them up. how much do you think that potentially hurts sales for restaurants in san francisco. yeah well, we're not sure yet. i've spoken to a few of my colleagues who did have you know a lot of the cocktails? we personally i personally have the opportunity for wine and beer on our to go menus, but we don't do quite that much of it. um but i know for some, it was a huge sorts of revenue. now i know that is dropped as a percentage of their sales since we've been able to dine back in the outdoor seating and indoors, of course, so we're just going to have to see. i know there were concerns with the delivery drivers and proof of id, and i think that that's why it was taken out. what about the aspect requiring that food be be sold? alongside those two go
drinks, and obviously, that potentially h negative effect, you know, puts puts a lot of bars in a tough position. if they don't have kitchens and don't offer food. why was why was that amendment made to the legislation? you have a sense of what that process was? yeah so i was not involved in that final decision. um, because. i was not involved in that in that decision process. i'm not sure why that happened. i know there were concerns about making sure that alcohol was consumed with food, and i think that's where that came down to. but again, that was not where it was originally, so we're a little disappointed with the final outcome. i mean, will be good for restaurants that have what's called a 41 or 47 license, sell beer and wine or beer, wine and liquor will be able to serve it with an order of food as well. but again, i think the cutback of the bars is unfortunate in the third party delivery yup. where we'll have to pull it off. those menus is also unfortunate put some limitations for businesses. uh the separate bill here we're
talking about is going to allow all bars and restaurants in california to serve alcohol in those park. let's ready those outdoor spaces that obviously we see all over the place. now they just sort of become a regular sight around town. how important is that going to be for the bottom line? uh the bottom lines of these businesses. well that was critical, and we really have to give senator weiner. a big vote of thank you for doing this because he recognized early on that. there's the city can, you know? allow it, which may breed just signed into permanent legislation on august 28th to have the ongoing outdoor seating shards faced as park let's which is amazing, and we're so thankful for that. but this was an um, an alcohol, barrow and control requirement that's done at the state level and the way that we're all serving in san francisco. now, as we have an emergency issued sort of catering permit that the abc had issued so all of this needs to get papered into sort of an. long term permitted process, and this bill was critical for that. and so this
is a huge huge thing for our restaurant and bar industry. we really want to thank the senator for all of his work, and finally as we wrap up, i mean, does this legislation means that these park let's that we see everywhere now are going to become a permanent part of the landscape even beyond the covid pandemic. well again, there's two sides to it. there's the city's allowing it and i really want to say again, a huge shout out to everybody that worked on the supervisors and the mayor's office and all of the departments to make the legislation permanent in san francisco, and we're going through that process now so that at the start of the year folks will be applying for or before the end of this year. excuse me, folks will be applying for those permanent permits. so yes, that's the game plan. but without serving alcohol in those faces, we would have a lot less interest in it. so this is a okay? real a real win win working with abc working with scott wiener hit his, um, insight into knowing that this had to get done was just really great planning and everything stays with the
cocktails to go in the park let's on an emergency order that governor newsom dead through the end of this year. we're talking about what happens january one at 22 years and beyond. yeah, yeah, all right. well, yeah, two important pieces of legislation that could certainly help bars and restaurants that have been struggling moving out of the pandemic. here. and they are on the governor's desk right now awaiting his signature will, of course, continue to follow. appreciate your time. laurie thomas is the head of the golden gate restaurant association. thanks for doing it. thank you so much. have a good evening. you too. bye bye. alright so turn your attention to whether i bet we have some san francisco giants fans in the studio here. yeah and i know we've got some at home and i know they're having an incredible run, so i wanted to start off with the forecast for you. if you're heading to the game tonight, it's going to be a little chilly out there, but pretty nice 58 degrees. partly cloudy skies at about 6 45 as they take on san diego and. i think this is the they've had nine wins in a row. right so this would be 10 tonight. that's pretty impressive. and again that went about 50 mph.
so you certainly want to make sure you're taking a jacket with you. it's going to be a little cool, very bay area kind of weather for that today live look outside, and you can see some of that cloud cover over there towards san francisco. no doubt about it. we've had lots of sunshine, but also lots of clouds. you're the coast. clouds kind of hung out a while, even around the bay and in certain spots, like, take a look at this santa rosa right now at 67 degrees, santa rosa didn't get nearly as warm today, as it did yesterday, because the cloud cover hung on san francisco, sitting at 60, oakland about 65 livermore, which had full sunshine from the get go 81 degrees right now and 75 in san jose. so our air quality is that a little bit of a sticking point. this is the current air quality you can see all of the yellow means that we are in moderate air quality. and that is why we are under an air quality advisory today. it extends through tomorrow and you can see those numbers are going to bump up just a touch about two points each in each area here so it's you know, it has to get up to 100 to get to the next level, which would be the orange level so we're doing okay. we've got a little breeze out there and you can see that a little gusty in santa rosa at 17 mph fairfield, certainly feeling it there about 23 mph.
that is our onshore breeze, helping to usher in that cooler air that came in today. again sfl about 15 mph and the clouds. they did hang out at the coast all day, but they pulled back in the bay and certainly in the east bay with lots of sunshine. but here it goes again as it starts to roll in, as we see that marine layer deepened yet again tonight that'll keep us nice and cool. so last night, we had the marine layer kind of get to above 2000 ft. i'll expect that for tonight as well. and so tomorrow we're going to be a little chilly at the coast of high about 61 degrees will have seventies around the bay. it's a little cool, but it'll be pretty nice view. head inland 80 degrees, so certainly a cooler scenario tomorrow and then the big story is. are we going to get a little rain this weekend i'm going to be back in just a little bit. we're going to talk about that. what are chances are it looks like it might be more of a north based scenario, but i'll time it out for you and get your extended forecast. two guys back to you. okay thank you. still ahead here on the force of oh, biles, mckayla, maroney and other olympic gymnast testifying on capitol hill today how they say

120 people who would not have been victims we suffered and continue to suffer because no one at. fbi u s a g or the u. s opc did what was necessary to protect us? just days ago, the fbi fired michael lindemann, the agent who the inspector general said did not properly pursued tips about nasser. but many say one firing doesn't go far enough. we find out of adjectives, but we haven't run out of action. senator blumenthal says he wants justice department officials to testify as well and is asking why there hasn't been criminal prosecution for the agents involved in this case. in washington. mala rivera fox news, the former home of the 49ers may have a new function coming up next, i'll. san francisco's candlestick point may be used to house dozens of homeless people, plus one of the most popular social media apps is harmful for teen girls, and that company has the data to show that i'm lauren blanchard in washington. i'll have more on a new report on

and what you can do next—to take control of your sight. its instagram app can have a negative effect on young people and especially teenage girls. now lawmakers are weighing in fox news. lauren blanchard has more for us this afternoon from washington. glossy filters and a digitally whitened smile can get a lot of likes on instagram. but according to a new report from the wall street journal there are also things to unlike facebook, the company that owns the app knows its platform is
harmful for young girls. internally instagram's research has shown that 32% of teen girls said that. when they felt bad about their bodies. instagram made them feel worse. instagram responding to the report writing, we stand by this research, it demonstrates our commitment to understanding, complex and difficult issues. young people may struggle with instagram went on to say they know social media can have negative impacts and is working to lessen them, giving the option to remove like counts and nudging users toward different content. in the past, often one facebook executives have been questioned about this. they have said that they believe the harm outweighs the good. and so now, i think many people would like to see the numbers that support that assertion. i don't think we need more information. i think we need regulation. senators richard blumenthal and marsha blackburn, announcing they will lead a senate committee probe into what facebook knew about instagram's affects on young users. the more we learn, and the more we investigate, the more concerned we are the
senator said for their probe. they already have a facebook whistleblower, and they plan to call more witnesses in washington. lauren blanchard, fox news and here now this afternoon to discuss the research, and what his parents can do is jim steyer, founder and ceo of common sense media, jim always a pleasure to see you. i have to say, i find this really troubling on the mom of a teenage girl. the reporting shows that facebook is aware of the negative impact that instagram has on teens. does that surprise you that they know it's toxic? no heather and by the way on the father of two girls who've been teenagers, so i completely relate to what you said, and i don't know if you know, i wrote a book 10 years ago called talking back to facebook. which was where there was a chapter about the impact on girls and teen girls, in particular of facebook and instagram and the fact that girls were photoshopping. their body images were changing their
appearance because they felt so bad about themselves. so facebook that was the best selling book facebook is known about this for more than a decade. facebook owns instagram guys. and so the fact that they're now claiming they did not know all of this is complete hogwash and as a parent myself, just like you. heather this is outrageous. we know marsha blackburn and #### blumenthal. the senators who going to lead the investigation, and it's about time. this is an absolute disgrace. and as a parent, it's a heartbreaking story. yeah, it really is because we're talking about increased rates of anxiety and depression and even suicide. so what should instagram be doing to help young people who who may struggle with mental health issues or just struggle with their self esteem and their body image? when they go on instagram? well, number one, they could do a major public awareness campaign. heather honestly, this is we've we have literally told them this for more than a decade, right? and
the idea that the leaders of that company, some of whom are prominent women, by the way. do not know that they should be educating their extraordinary user based in terms of size about the dangers of photoshop your image about all the different ways in which this affects teens and young girls and boys. by the way, mental health is crazy. they know exactly what to do. they should be putting out messages saying you don't need to do this. there should be a broad public awareness campaign paid for by facebook and instagram about the downsides of this and fundamentally, it is time for us to recognize that social media can be a toxic environment. for girls and boys, but all of us when it comes to body image, and so a broad public awareness campaign paid for by these extraordinarily wealthy companies, instagram and facebook is a no brainer and then constantly repeating messages to kids like yours in mind about how you don't need to judge yourself by the standards, okay, we know jim
that teenagers spend an awful lot of time on social media, whether we like it or not, and it poses unique challenges for us parents. so what type of rules should we be enforcing? well number one. it's really good to set time limits, as you know whether it's been tough during the pandemic to tell your kid you can't be in front of a screen because they're going to school that way. they're communicating with friends that way so the pandemic has made it more complicated. number one ongoing dialogue. look, you're a mom of a teenager. i've had four teenagers. conversations with teenagers are tough, but you've got to ask questions. you've got to pay attention to the warning signs to. i think if your kid is losing weight if you can see issues around body image if you're concerned about eating disorders and changes, you've got to look for those warning signs. and i mean that my wife and i have talked about this for years, so and then it's dialogue, dialogue dialogue, but don't overreact also have a constructive conversation with your kids. these are teenagers. heather,
you remember it was like to be a teenager. it's tough. it's tough. as a parent. i think you have to show empathy. you have to try to relate to them. and you also have to talk to them very bluntly about what they're seeing on instagram or facebook. they're really on instagram, youtube and snapchat these days, but you have to have a conversation with them. listen to them. and then honestly give them some really good common sense advice. alright well, hopefully this segment will spur some of those discussions. jim steyer really appreciated. always always appreciate your insight. thank you so much. great to see you. good luck as a mom. thank you. i needed we are. state school superintendent tony thurmond is leading an effort to improve mental health programs in our schools. thurman held a virtual roundtable discussion today with legislative leaders and education and mental health experts. they discussed how to help schools with mental health services building, a school based mental health workforce and the types of services available in schools right now.

in mind with some of the other launches that we've seen. which only lasted a short haul. the picnic continues to conduct a few experiments up there all 2% of message. you should delegate person don't just posted a big of what she's taking into space. she has a photo of when she was a cancer patient years ago. hope is deputy will follow that open space. her now as an astronaut, and that shows people that even if you're going through difficult times, there are bright days on the horizon, so their hope is to conduct sign it and send a message to many down here on earth. all right, the inspiration for launch looks to be good to go here in the next few minutes. robert sherman live from cape canaveral, florida. robert thank you. all right. i wish them all the best. that's a pretty fascinating thing to be a part of. we've had a day that started off a little cloudy and certainly ended up a little cool, particularly if you weren't in the entire east bay. that's the only spot that kind of had full sunshine all day. so let's start with a look at our
current temperatures. and you can see here behind me 60 degrees in san francisco right now, but we're at 74 walnut creek in livermore was very sunny today there at 81, but just 67 in santa rosa. a spot that stayed very cloudy for a good portion of the day today. this is the difference in temperatures between now and 24 hours ago, so conquered you cool down 17 degrees. same story in fairfield. now out here at sfo. it's just a 2 degrees difference right because the clouds kind of stuck with yesterday to santa rosa, though you can see nevado above 10 degrees cooler than they were this time yesterday. livermore about 15 live. look outside here and you see, those clouds are rolling in. they're gonna be with us again tonight is that marine layer does deepen and when that happens, it does help us to get that nice marine layer influence where we get the cooler temperatures that that's the story as we go throughout the night tonight, here are the lows and they're getting a little low in some spots. right? 54 in sanford. cisco. not bad, but if you're napa 51. santa rosa 48, so it's going to get a little chilly out there and some of our inland valleys
tonight tomorrow, the cooling continues, so expect those temperatures to roll down even further. in fact, inland, you know, we're talking, just getting up into the low eighties instead of something upper eighties like we're looking forward today, so it'll be morning clouds that go to afternoon sunshine. and if you're at the coast yeah, i think you're going to stay cloudy tomorrow. it's going to be a bit of a cloudy day for you. so these are the highest today 61 at pacifica, 63, san francisco, 70 and hayward. head to the entire east bay. that's for the low eighties will be likely just upper sixties and mid seventies as we look at the north bay, so a very kind of chilly day tomorrow and then we've got a new pattern setting up in this new pattern is kind of our fault pattern. we start to see storms rolling in from the pacific northwest. and what happens is our high pressure is going to relent, and we're going to see a system drop in and when that occurs if it holds together, and that's the big if we could get a little rain out of it. it does look like it's really just going to be a tiny bit of rain and likely the only north bay. the mendocino county and points north that are likely to get more significant rain, but saturday night through sunday
morning is the timing that'll be cool and cloudy, regardless and also on the back side of this system. a little bit of a downside is that same pattern shift sets us up for possibly our first offshore wind event, which, of course, can bring a little fire danger with it, too, so not too happy to see that, but we knew it was going to show up at some point this month. so let's look at future cast and talk about the rain. so the system is you can see friday night rolling into the pacific northwest, giving seattle probably good soaking and then it shows up friday, i took stream northern california so eureka and as we get into this is the overnight so now i'm looking at sunday at eight a.m. you see it trying to hold together to bring a little rain our way. that's the chance that we'll have now how much rain will the models keep pulling back on this? so now? it looks like you know, we could see less than 1/10 of an inch. i don't think it's going to be a huge rainmaker. but we'll monitor this as we get closer to it and let you know as we roll towards the weekend. so here's your extended forecast cooler tomorrow, mostly sunny skies on friday, so we'll clear out a little bit, but stay relatively cool. we continue cooling down saturday into sunday as we see that rain chance come our way. and then
monday, we dry out we warm up and then we look out for the potential of some offshore winds a little bit of a busy run the next five days, guys back to you. alright kyler. thank you coming up here on the four an inside look at prison in afghanistan now run by the taliban. we'll hear from a top taliban security official about the state of the current government also coming up a new at five tonight, details on a bay area pilot program that uses rapid covid testing to help students stay in the classroom. also ahead of five the honor break quick thinking south bay man who police say may have prevented a mass shooting.
