4:21 pm
headlands even out towards stinson and bellinis. and also you see that patch already pushing back into the bay approaching approaching angel island right now, so the low clouds increasing just like yesterday, but we still have some pretty warm temperatures on our current temperatures map, but livermore 91, walnut creek 85 for the interior san jose in the lower eighties oakland 69 in san francisco downtown. check it in 63 degrees. speaking of san francisco, is pairing up with the fog once again this afternoon that cloud this big cloud patch will expand and coverage once again as we head into the overnight hours into what you're friday morning. so here's the plan tomorrow morning temperatures in the fifties to lower sixties the possibility of some drizzle out there, especially near portions of the coast and maybe right around the bay. there's your temperature range 52 to 62 degrees. i know there's a kind of felt a bit of a chill in the air this morning, and that would be the case for tomorrow morning. as we put this into motion into the afternoon hours, still keeping it cool
4:22 pm
along the coast. still some leftover patches around the bay and you can see temperatures tomorrow, ranging from the sixties warmest occasions will be in the upper eighties to right around 90 degrees. so here's your friday forecast and even a cooler pattern expected into the weekend. we'll have more on that with your full update coming up in just a few minutes. all right. we'll see you in a bit, mark. thank you were following some more breaking news now in vallejo, and this is going to have a big impact for commuters here in the middle of the afternoon. commute. live pictures from sky foxx showing us a very serious crash in vallejo. it is a multi vehicle crash. obviously involving that big rig there that you can see from the shot is straddling the center divide . this is on interstate 80. and we are being told we have been told that all of the eastbound lanes of interstate 80 are shut down, but mostly from the shot. you do see cars getting by, at least in that far right hand lane for the time being, this is all happening on interstate 80 just west of highway 37 very
4:23 pm
serious crash with a big rig up on that center divider right there. it's going to take quite a bit of time as you can imagine to get that truck out of the way. so in the meantime, there is a very serious backup. clearly in both directions here, no matter which way you are approaching this crash, you are going to be stuck in quite a bit of traffic here. so this is an area to avoid this afternoon again, a serious crash involving a big rig happening on eastbound interstate 80 just west of highway 37 most of the lanes if not all of them blocked right now, as emergency crews respond to this scene, we'll obviously continue to follow the latest developments here. trying to get you some more information on any of the possible injuries involved with this crash, and we'll get you an update coming up later on in this newscast. portions of the affidavit that led to the search of former president trump's mar a lago was state are now one step closer to being released. the new details next. 49ers play thursday night

4:25 pm
for decades, i've worked at the intersection of domestic violence and homelessness. so when prop 27 promised solutions to homelessness, i took a good, hard look. it's not a solution. 90% of the money goes to the out-of-state corporations who wrote it. very little is left for the homeless. don't let corporations exploit homelessness to pad their profits. vote no on 27. yes he never lost that route, joined mornings on to life for martinez tomorrow, starting at nine. florida judge today
4:26 pm
ordered the justice department to unseal a redacted version of the affidavit that was used to justify the fbi search of mara lago. the search warrants show that the fbi removed classified documents from the home of former president trump as foxes madeline rivera reports now from washington. it's not clear how much more detail the release of this affidavit will provide. after weeks of waiting, the public will now get a chance to see part of the affidavit behind the moral lago search. a federal judge approved its partial release after the justice department submitted proposed redactions thursday. this is the start of a haggling process. what's unclear is how redacted the document will be. the judge says the government has met its burden of showing a compelling reason to seal portions of the affidavit to avoid compromising the case. i imagine what the government is most concerned about. is the identities of informant. the battle over the documents has been going on for more than a year, according to
4:27 pm
the washington post, which cites a national archives email to former president trump's lawyers from may of 2021, the mending the return of about two dozen boxes of official records. even the white house counsel agreed on truth social, the former president maintains he did nothing wrong, but some still want the doj to release the entire affidavit. i've learned through my time in politics that have measures often don't work. and so i think with the judge do is release all the information. i think that's in the public's interest, legal experts say. it's all a matter of time charges get filed. in this case, all of this stuff is going to become public. in any event. it's just a question of when another football judge has given trump until friday to better explain why he needs a neutral third party to review the documents that were seized in mar a lago in washington. mather rivera fox news. historic steps being taken to combat climate change coming up here on the four we sit down and talk with a local expert to look at what comes next in california's
4:28 pm
effort to phase out gas powered vehicles. what's the difference between prop 26 and prop 27? 26? not one dime to get people off the streets and into housing 27 generates hundreds of million to help solve homelessness. the choice is clear yes on prop 27.

i mean, can i have a bite? only from xfinity. nah. unbeatable internet. made to do anything so you can do anything. what's the difference between prop 26 and prop 27? 26 is a money grab that doesn't guarantee a cent but for non gaming tribes, 27 requires 15% of all state revenues go to non gaming tribes. the choice is clear. yes, on 27. late today. california's air regulators approved a groundbreaking plan that aims to reduce carbon emissions and address climate change by speeding the transition to electric vehicles . the california air resources board voted to ban the sale of newcalifornia air resources board voted to ban the sale of
4:31 pm
new gas powered vehicles for the year 2035. the band will not prevent people from selling or driving used gas powered vehicles in california. the new regulations are likely to have a profound impact nationwide since more than one dozen states typically follow emission standards. >> we are joined by oshawa weinstein agarwal. our director of the national transportation finance center. thank you so much for being here. our state, as we all know, has become home to congested freeways. smog is often a concern. how ridiculous this role? >> this is truly a historic ruling that will transform not just our transportation and help california achieve its climate goals, but important cleaning of the air pollution troubles that so many of us
4:32 pm
face. >> is it clear what kind of an impact this plan is ultimately going to have in terms of reducing emissions? do we have a sense of how much we can reduce emissions here in california with this policy in place? >> yes. right now, the passenger vehicles that will drive are probably generating roughly 30% of carbon emissions that california generates. a great deal of the air pollutants. it's not banning gas and diesel vehicles. people are still allowed to drive them and buy and sell used vehicles. it's not like we are going to suddenly be 100% electric. but over the coming decade, will see a dramatic reduction in the number of gas and diesel vehicles on the road. going to be incredibly valuable, again, for improving our quality, reducing carbon emissions and potentially for
4:33 pm
reducing costs for driving for a lot of people. hopefully, electric vehicles will become cheaper and faster. if we can get the purchase prices of the average vehicle down, certainly operating an electric vehicle is cheaper today than buying gas and diesel. something i guess viewers are painfully aware of the gas prices over the last few months. >> yes. california once again upfront on an issue, taking this historic step. what's the likelihood that other states will follow suit? >> strong likelihood. california has been a leader in error technology and regulation for decades. there are more than a dozen states that follow california's regulations. no particular reason to think it would be any different this time. the group of states that california leads, maybe roughly,
4:34 pm
30 or 35% of the vehicle market in the united states. typically, manufacturers will follow up with vehicles that this all across the country. >> they're going to be a lot of challenges and hurdles for california to reach this goal. not the least of which is the fact that we need a whole lot more electrical vehicle charging stations across the state to power this new electric vehicles. what steps need to be taken to create that infrastructure? >> this is critical if people are to be able to conveniently use their electric vehicles. we all have to charge them. one part of the process which people are most aware of is public fast charging stations. the equivalent of a tesla supercharger or charge point stations. there is federal money. the state government is putting a lot of money into thinking
4:35 pm
about how we can quickly increase the number of these fast charging five that is really only one sees of what we need to do for charging. in some ways, the rest is potentially easier. most of the time, we don't need to charge one or 200 miles on the vehicle quickly. most people may drive 30, 40, 50 meals miles per day in their commute and come home and charge from their home. is a lot of work to be done to provide reliable and convenient slowcharging opportunities. having employers and garages, facilities at shopping malls, at home. the good thing is that the requirements for the electricity grid are much lower if people are charging slowly. we need to invest a lot more
4:36 pm
upgrading when it is lots of cars all in one place fast charging. >> i'm sorry, professor, we are out of time. we appreciate you coming on today to walk us through this historic step here in california today. thank you. >> thank you. a portion of the freeway near that california-arizona border was washed away by flash flooding. this happened last week in riverside county. happened earlier this week in riverside county. severe weather in that area. they released these photos. we will show you this. hopefully what was left of the roadway. the eastbound was destroyed, as you see. damage will impact thousands of drivers making their way from the l.a. area to phoenix. drivers are being urged to find alternate routes. it is unclear at this point how long it is going to take to prepare the roadway. >> san jose has a new plan to
4:37 pm
get people off the street into apartment style units. >> let's see how money from the state will be put into a project to help the homeless. >> reporter: it is here right next to the railroad tracks for the new housing units will be constructed. right now, if you on house residents currently live on this vacant lot. they have already heard they may need to leave here soon. >> housing assistance is always welcome without a doubt. >> reporter: the city and nonprofit called life moves plans to build a to a four unit complex here. here's a rendering of the project. design details could change. to jason who has lived here for two years, getting into such housing would be life-changing and gladly affected. >> i think it would help a lot to be able to go to work and, you know, be able to sustain living here in san jose.
4:38 pm
>> the new units will be built mostly with the $52 million grant from the states project junkie, which aims to build housing for the un-housed date wide. in a virtual news conference on tuesday, they said the state funding is contained in. >> using our kwik fill department model which has been so successful moving hundreds of residents off the streets already through the pandemic. >> reporter: this will be the fourth such project for life moves, which already operates in palo alto and redwood city and opened to mountain view last year. the san jose project will be different. the concept is the same. >> the site takes a different approach from the conventional group shelters. it was designed for dignity, practicality, self-sufficiency. the site features individual units. >> reporter: as usual, projects like this one come with not in my backyard controversies. councilmember sergio jimenez, who represents the district,
4:39 pm
says the city has carefully worked with nearby residents. >> this will be our third housing project in a matter of a few years. while there has been some concerns from residents, i believe the majority of them understand, support, and are proud of the efforts that we have made thus far. >> the exact timeline for the project is still being worked out. in general, projects using this funding must be complete within one year. reporting in san jose, mark sayre, fox 2news. this move is aimed at reducing the amount of sensitive content teenagers see. here today this afternoon, thanks so much for being here. explain to viewers first what the change does and what it means for users under the age of 16. >> instagram has a feature called sensitive content control to limit content is that does not violate
4:40 pm
instagram's guidelines, but something you might not want teenagers to see. teenagers who are under 16 years old, there is three different levels. there is standard. you see some violent or graphic content and you can choose to see less. anyone under 16 will automatically whenever they join the appc last sensitive content. this is something even users who are 18 and under want have the option to see more. as a user as an adult you can choose whether you want to see the standard amount of sensitive content, less, more. users under 16 will be defaulted to the less amount. i >> explain more about what is considered, or what instagram considers to be sensitive. >> a lot of this content is violent or sexual content. some of it can even be things like anyone discussing things like an eating disorder or weight loss. these can be things that don't
4:41 pm
necessarily violate instagram's guidelines. and someone is experiencing something, they might not want to see that. whenever they're using search or rails, whenever you get that on your instagram feed, you get less option, less sensitive content, that will be very much filtered out. >> instagram really hoping this will make a dent in the type of content that they see. do you think it will make it more difficult for young people to get access to certain content and accounts? >> instagram has got a lot of heat from parents about the kinds of content that young people are exposed to. this seems like a stronger effort on the part of instagram to filter out the content. hopefully it works. the fact that there are three different settings where you choose, as an adult user, but as a teenager, forced into less categories. hopefully, that will actually relieve some of those concerns.
