4:18 pm
such an amazing piece of coastline. so right now there's a lot of cold water that's upwelling along our coast, creating perfect conditions for anchovies. all of these anchovies are coming together right along the coast and the feeding frenzy. that spring. all the other animals things like birds, seals, gray whales and humpback whales and some of those birds in particular, i think are getting a little uber excited. i mean, we're seeing some fish dropping from the sky. we're also seeing fish getting into things like lagoons where, unfortunately with tides, they can wind up getting caught, and that's resulting in some of the things in molina's that you've seen. so perhaps those birds picking up more than they can handle. adam this is not the first time this has happened, right? it's not. we have seen this in 2017. it lasted around two months. and right now we're around a month into this current events. we do anticipate this to continue a little bit longer, and it's really resulted in quite the experience for wales in particular right along our
4:19 pm
coast, as you've seen in some of these pictures, particularly gray, well, feeding right off the coast of pacifica. adam i want to ask you i know climate literacy is so important to you. so from a climate change perspective, we know warmer water temps are becoming normal . so is it a welcome sight for you to see this? because the water is so cold and knowing for at least the time being. the ocean ecosystem is operating how it should it's certainly wonderful to see all of these animals with the feeding frenzy right now we know that this is a for the most part of natural occurrence that we think is happening right now with long nina and el nino cycles that we tend to see. um and certainly we want to make sure that these animals stay as healthy as possible and just speaks to how much interaction we can have with the ocean and everything we can do at home at school at businesses. to create a healthy ocean for all these animals, so love seeing them so close to shore right now and doing well and i just encourage everyone to be able to take action in their own lives that we can keep the
4:20 pm
ocean healthy again for generations to come about being able to see more of those animals coming to shore or near the shore because of the water right now, so how long might this last and obviously people want to take advantage of seeing those gray will so close. yeah we anticipate that it might last around another month. but of course, the ocean is quite dynamic. right now. it's particularly off the coast of marin, san francisco san mateo county that we're seeing a lot of these big bursts of anchovies close to shore and our researchers at the marine mammal center or out there documenting this and actually catching some things for very the first time. we think in terms of these gray whales actually eating anchovies right at the surface along the curse, so it's truly remarkable scientific just temporary and hopefully we'll continue to learn more in the weeks to come, really is amazing. all right, adam rattner from the marine mammal center, adam, thanks for the time. have a great weekend. thank you. it's wonderful seeing it just how so excited that adam is about the anchovies, right? absolutely i just can't imagine
4:21 pm
the smell, though. okay let's progress and move forward inland . clear skies there at mount diablo, currently 71 degrees. relative humidity is down 13. good afternoon. everybody look at all that clear blue sky, and that's one of the few spots it's inland. you have to go to have the clarity because along the coast it's socked in and half moon bay at 57 degrees, otherwise where we do have the clouds. it's pretty much stuck into the fifties like san francisco, we are at 61 degrees . importantly cloudy and hayward 78 degrees for sunshine and throughout the tri valley, and the warm spot is 83. in fairfield. so we have this deck of low clouds and some areas of patchy fog, even producing some condensation in the form of drizzle overnight tonight, again in march is a good 50 miles inland towards the tri valley and even saturates the central valley. backs off during the day tomorrow. by the evening hours, we still linger in the overcast conditions from the city through ocean beach into pacifica and half moon bay must speech.
4:22 pm
montara beach, you get the feel for this, and then sunday the marine layer actually enhances it deepens and so we see very little sunshine. so you gotta ask what's going to happen for our independence day. well we do have a sagging area of low pressure right off the coast. it looks like instead of scaring out the clouds is going to deepen those clouds. so if you have any kind of fireworks viewing plans or you're barbecuing plans, clear skies and inland areas. partly cloudy at the bay. for the embarcadero . you know what it's like. it looks like a stain when those fireworks go up, and they project against the low clouds of the patchy fog temperatures into the fifties. i tell you what we'll have the full five day forecasts and even tossing a tahoe outlook that's still coming up, gentlemen. thank you , roberta ahead of the fourth of july holiday and urgent warning from firefighters how fireworks and extremely dry conditions could spell disaster. and look

4:26 pm
course, has been talking about this issue for so many years and on the right is attorney and talk show host eric early, who almost was in the finals for california attorney general and they go back and forth on abortion. here's a preview. we have to remember in november. we have to get out there and vote for pro choice candidates we can't take for granted that we live in a blue pro choice state . we have to get out there and also support approaches. candidates get people who are pro choice to run for office contribute to them. this is alex war against women, and it is about risking our lives in many states to get an abortion because it's unsafe and possibly illegal. notwithstanding the dobbs ruling the right to an abortion remains legal in the state of california. because lee the decision. i ask you a qu
4:27 pm
means it's up to the people of the s in california we have a legislature that has that supports. abortion so whether i agree with that ruling or not, here, it is legal in california here. we don't need an amendment to the constitution. so speaking of that legislature just this week they passed and governor newsom signed a $300 billion budget as part of that, though they set aside $200 million for what they call reproductive care and part of that. is setting up a fund to help support women coming from other states where abortions are illegal to come here to california and get those abortions legally done here, so this issue is going to be talked about a whole lot in the months between now and that election in november, greg and brooks but you know, we could see in that
4:28 pm
clip there got a little testy, so i'm wondering. do you have any insight alex into the likelihood of a constitutional amendment passing in california? california is an overwhelmingly pro choice state. it is an overwhelmingly democratic state in the primary for governor. gavin newsom got 60 plus percent of the vote, so one would think that this would be kind of a shoe in to win in november. the question going forward is. are there legal challenges to that? that's something that some on the right have brought up. but if you had to bet on something passing in november, you should bet on this. all right, alex michaelson tonight. thanks for the preview and look for more on the abortion debate sunday morning. on the issue is alex will also speak with california first lady jennifer siebel newsom. she's opening up about her new documentary, which explores an imbalance of gender dynamics in many homes. the issue is starts sunday morning

4:33 pm
most of the time. the split, leaving some to wonder whether a middle ground can be reached. we've seen polls for a long time that a majority of americans opposed opposed striking down rovi wade, but at the same time they supported serious restrictions on abortion nationwide. but several pro choice advocates ballot box increase the political pressure so that and are held to account for the conseque2% of americans consider women's or abortion rights a top priority. that's up from just 8% in december and washington. mala rivera, fox news and governor. newsom did not participate in the meeting because of a previously scheduled family commitment. new at four bay area lawmakers are speaking about another rise in anti asian hate

are also on the rise. californians to report incidents when they witnessed them. governor newsom is now declared states of emergency in santa barbara and monterey counties to help the process of recovery from recent wildfires. the declarations allows caltrans to request immediate federal assistance for highway repairs and reconstruction following those wildfires. in santa barbara county. there is a provision to ease access to unemployment benefits for those unemployed as a result of the alice l fire. it burns 17,000 acres in october. the colorado fire in january near big sur burned nearly 700 acres. cal fire now says it's safe for evacuees from the rice's fire to go back home. the fire in the sierra foothills has burned more than 900 acres in nevada county and has destroyed at least four buildings. the fire started tuesday as a structure fire, but the flames quickly spread to
4:36 pm
nearby grass. the fire should be fully contained by sunday. it is about 22% contained right now. 13 fire fire fighters have been injured since the fire started in butte county. the sandra fire has forced evacuations. it started yesterday afternoon, and it's burned more than 30 acres in the community of forbes town east of oroville. it is 50% contained tonight. the cause is under investigation. the recent hot, dry weather can be dangerous as some people start setting off their own fireworks . not only can airborne fireworks caused injuries, they can also start new fires. fire officials warn at this time of year dry and windy conditions can lead to disaster if you aren't careful, battalion chief at cal fire tells ktvu. the agency is prepared for the fourth of july weekend and is out looking for illegal fireworks. paired for this weekend. we will have our prevention officers working with local and federal law

4:39 pm
old stamp to protect the environment. a new bill just signed into law by governor newsom will dramatically change how plastics are used and produced. the law creates the country's toughest plastic reduction rules. alexis brooks,
4:40 pm
who's with the nature conservancy and environmental nonprofit. she joins us now, with some perspective on how this new policy will tackle the problem of plastics pollution. alexis first, let's just set the stage here. we've seen lots of plastic products end up not just in landfills, but in the ocean, even the san francisco bay so how concerned should people be about plastics pollution? yeah you know, we've seen of skyrocketing rate at which we're seeing plastics produced. we know that in the next 10 to 20 years, the amount of plastics that are entering our oceans is expected to almost triple. so these threats are real. the more that we learned from research. we know that these plastics are ending up in our food. they're ending up in our drinking water there, even ending up in our bodies. and so the question of what cost we're paying for. plastic pollution becomes more and more real for a number of people. you know, this new law is pretty ambitious. it's calling for 25% reduction in
4:41 pm
single use plastics by 2032 huge increase in recycling efforts for all plastic items sold imported into california by 2032 . so if that happens, what kind of effect do you think that will have on our environment here? yeah we anticipate that as a result of this legislation, we would see a decrease in the tens of millions of tons of plastic. that is an enormous amount and the impact of that would definitely have impacts to the wildlife that we care about, but also to our communities, particularly those communities that have borne a disproportionate impact because of our plastic consumption. but i think that this bill also incentivizes producers to be moving towards more circular and sustainable options for their packaging. it creates those incentives. you know the big question. i think many people wonder is what's it going to look like at the grocery stores? you know when we reach for that bottled water, maybe a yogurt container or that plastic jug of laundry detergent. so we, you
4:42 pm
know, what do you think? yeah so this legislation has really focused on holding the plastics industry accountable from the impacts that they're having on people in nature, and for a long time those impacts have been borne by local government and also by consumers as they're working to pick them up. um, and so what we know is that in the grocery store and also at places like restaurants now those plastic single use plastic packaging and food wear will be required by 2032 to be recyclable or compostable, so the hard work has been done for us as the consumers which is really the importance of having this producer responsibility model. alexis brooks with the nature conservancy. thanks so much for joining us appreciate your insight. thank you. okay i was just asked. what do i mean by no sky july while that means foggy, cloudy sky at the coast, but we've got blue skynner inland areas. take a peek at this right now looking out towards mount diablo and i keep
4:43 pm
