we're learning new details in the killing of "washington post" columnist jamal khashoggi. inside the saudi consulate in turkey. president trump spoke with his cia chief and top diplomat today about it. he's also saying a full report on the matter is due in a matter of days. the cia had reportedly concluded that the saudi crown prince did order the journalist's killing. mr. trump has yet to confirm that report. also today the president called saudi arabia a truly spectacular al last month ward severe punishment if saudi leaders were found to have played a role. another heated controversy involving race on twitter this weekend. >> apparently we got no money. >> a chipotle restaurant in st. paul, minnesota is under fire for asking several black men to
11:14 pm
pay for their meal first. usually, chipotle makes your meal first and then you pay. but in this video posted by a user named massoud ali the manager is telling them they have to pay first because they don't have money when they normally come into the restaurant. that manager was fired and apparently the manager thought it was the same group of men who were unable to pay for their meal days before. but after that tweet and this video went viral twitter users began to post old tweets believed to be from the same person who posted this. they and his frien at past without paying. new at hottest wedding trend that has many couples flouting federalla in states where recreational marijuana is now legal, newlyweds are choosing to add pot to their parties. with weed legal in nine states now it's a whole new business model for some wedding planners. >> it's not just that people smoke marijuana at a wedding like this. you're talking about decorating the wedding -- >> yeah, absolutely. like there's cannabis in the
11:15 pm
flowers and at the altar. and there's flower in the bouquet and in the groom's boutonniere. >> okay. the budding business may put a dent in wedding services that focus on alcohol. however, a lot of couples see marijuana as a replacement for drinks. new video tonight showing a bit of good from inside the burn strike team from paradise. they found this deer tangled in a power line. you can see firefighters were able to cut him free. those poor animals probably wondering what the heck is going on. >> down here we're wondering to a lesser degree our problem is the bad area. >> air quality having a lasting impact. very unhealthy to unhealthy air around the bay area. and actually, tonight it has improved very slightly compared to what is probably the peak of this event. i think it occurred last night.
11:16 pm
right now san francisco and half moon bay, santa rosa back into the orange. that is unhealthy for sensitive groups. and still very unhealthy in concord, but if we remind to this time last night you can see the levels were actually much higher in san francisco and oakland and out toward livermore. so the slight improvement made possible by a very subtle change in the wind today. we had a little bit of a sea breeze pick up this evening, which some of the models indicate we rapid refresh weather model, which by the way we use for rainfall, wind direction, and sometimes how much it's going to rain. it also can t closer look at air pollution and how the winds interact near ground level. so during the day tomorrow a weak sea breeze. you still see unhealthy air inland but it looks like into the afternoon, the coast especially, some of the gains we made today in terms of bringing down the worst of the air quality might hold up for another day. but here's the problem. it went from very unhealthy to unhealthy. so that's as good as it gets. for tomorrow into monday.
11:17 pm
tuesday. probably the last of the spare the air days. that will be the 13th day in a row before big changes in the form of rain and more wind coming in toward wednesday. for the morning patchy frost. mostly fog again for the morning. as we ge into the afternoon hazy skies. highs in the low to mid 60s. ahead of those big changes as we begin to head toward wednesday. now look at the winds wednesday morning 7:00 a.m. that's going to start to push the smoke away from the bay area. it's the first of two storm systems that comes in. that's the storm for wednesday. tapering off. as we go into wednesday night. but wednesday could be a big travel day. if you can head up to the sierra. thanksgiving. notice the rain in the bay area. off and on from the morning through about midday. decreasing around 7:00. then we'll see another storm, probably the stronger of the two, set up late thanksgiving night into friday morning and midday. you see that system going on through with some scattered showers into saturday. third system we think will fall apart on sunday as high pressure begins to build back in. so here's the good news for the sierra. cold enough for snow above 6,000
11:18 pm
feet. could see the first winter storm watches or winter weather rizries going up for holiday travel. keep that in mind if you're heading to the high country now. for the bay area this possibly could be the most rain we've seen since march or april as most places in the north bay might see as much as an inch or more in some of those higher hilltops and if we bet an inch or more in the hills around the bay area that would be the most rain since about april 6th. now, the problem with the big fires we've seen recently, some of the biggest rain totals we could see around northern california highlighted here in the purple and white could include four to five inches of rain. around the camp fire. so that's going to help put out some of the fire, but debris flows could be possible. also the burn zone of the carr fire up to the north. that is the other side of the wildfire scenario now as we get into the rainy pattern setting up again. we're going to have to watch out for that for thee ek. but i do think good air quality makes a big comeback thursday night into wednesday and from there we should be pretty good air qualitiwise, but watching
11:19 pm
how much rain falls in the fire zone, that will be something to watch later next week. >> better days to come. >> and soon. thanks, rob. still to come, hockey and hoops. the warriors and the sharks both playing tonight. >> yeah, dave feldman has your highlights coming up in sports. and we've got snl snl. >> hi, guys. i'm steve carell and i'm hosting "saturday night live" with musical guest ella mai, and we're on next. exactly.
