6:20 pm
this week, let's bring in our chief meteorologist jeff ranieri. let's talk about the wind directions and the weather. how is it going to impact the firefight moving forward throughout the week? >> well, i think the really big message i wanted to get across right now is we don't have any extreme wind events as we head through the next couple of days. we'll see our typical ocean breeze moving in 10, 20 miles per hour. beyond that, i do not see major, major winds this week. there's a little bit of good news for the firefighters. that is most likely why they were able to get a quick handle on the fire in cordelia. let's take you to the maps. there are still evacuations in place. they may be relaxed here soon. you can see cordelia right there. the fire was right on the eastern side of cordelia. i want to do street level mapping to show you what the big concern was with this fire. it started on nelson hill right back here. it's a local landmark. it's up about 300 feet for a lot of you from this area.

6:33 pm
the fact that we're asking our political analyst about health issues speaks volumes. >> we started out clean. go back 3 1/2 months, the governor sat everybody down virtually. here's the problem, here's how to handle it. we've got four steps to go through to get out of the mess. shelter in place, all that. boom, it falls apart completely as things go along. i think there are two big factors here that explain it. the first of them has to do with the governor, how he handled this thing. governor newsom, of course. he didn't stay with the plan. he came up with ideas, we're going to do this, this. he would make exceptions or counties themselves would peel off and say we're not waiting for the governor to give us the go ahead. we're going to do what we want. that's the second point. he gave the county too much power altogether. giving them the power, a lot of them took advantage of it and
6:34 pm
opened at certain times too early. that's the third point. he's real a loud them to, you know to do this in such a way that he's opened too fast. the state opened too fast. it's not me saying this. it's most people saying this. the problem is, the credibility. he's hurting on that credibility issue. >> governor newsom says he's follow the data. is he being truthful or following the requests of the business community? we're saying two things here. >> that's a good question. i'm not sure we know the answer. the other factor is that the public has not done its part. the public hasn't bought into what the governor said. the governor said stick with me, do this and we'll be okay. the public peeled off. large segments of the public peeled off. they've also gone so far as to make threat. people so unhappy with the governor's policies have made threats to the health officer, ten health officers, eight
6:35 pm
county 57bd two states literally left their positions because -- their lives threat yent d by people who didn't like what they were saying. you've got a problem here. the public has not bought in. because of that, that has hurt the governor's credibility. >> whether you like the governor or not in terms of what he's doing politically, is he in a no-win situation. people are with it or against it, is he in a no-win situation here? >> he's in a no-win situation for the moment. there's no question. what the governor has to do is find the wherewithal, find a way to reach the public and be consistent with what he does. consistency very important. you're saying you're going to close the beaches and leaving them open isn't being consistent. i has to be consistent so the public knows what to expect. the public has to realize that they're only hurting themselves. i think about andrew cuomo, the governor of new york and the way he sat new yorkers down every
6:36 pm
morning for three month and really told them hard stuff they didn't want to hear. then gave them hope. do this, you'll be okay. look what we have. they have 1% positivity. we in california now 6.5% positivity. so if the governor, governor newsom tried his best to get people to hear again and comes up with a consistent message, i think he'll have luck in getting people to come together. this is going to be a long haul, raj, no question about it. we had an easier way out, now it's take two. who knows how long it will take. >> final question. can he convince the business owners and you and i know them very well, larry, saying we need to keep open, can he convince the business owners of that? >> that's the big question. he need to convince the business owners. on the other side, business owners have to realize if they don't go along now, things will be worse later. we talk about a phase 2 downstream.
6:37 pm
we can't get out of phase 1. so it's in their interest to play ball with the governor. if they don't, this thing only is likely to last longer. snie we appreciate your analysis and perspective. thanks, larry. >> thanks r larry and raj. a unanimous decision from the supreme court. the high court ruled members of the electoral college may not, quote, go rogue. they're seen here voting in 2016. many americans are unaware when they cast a ballot, they're voting for a slate of electors. then they meet to formally vote for the president. today the justices ruled they're not free agents and must vote in line with the popular vote in their home state. the decision heads off what many believe could have been a major controversy in november. >> if you don't -- the electoral college was closely divided there could have been a big fight and real attempt to get
6:38 pm
electors who are pledged to joe biden or to president trump to switch sides. >> the case stems from 2016 when several refused to vote hillary clinton even though she won their states. also today, the supreme court said to robo calls on cell phones. a 30-year-old federal law made cell phones a robo call-free zone. five years ago, congress carved out an exception and allowed automated calls for debt collection. it violated their right to free speech. the justices rejected that challenge and threw out the robo call exception for government debt collection. up next, why pieces of the world famous aids quilt are now hanging outside multiple bay area buildings this evening. stay with us.

6:49 pm
i did want to update you on the breaking news earlier in the show. that's the fire near cordelia and fairfield. you can see it was on the eastern side here of cordelia. as you heard from cheryl hurd on the scene earlier in the show, they've really got a good handle on this. even some homeowners helping out with garden hoses. it happened when the fire broke out on nelson hill behind all of these homes on sierra court, scotch pine court, also early amber court. those are the areas that were under evacuation as the flames were headed towards those homes. again, the wind out of the south at 5 miles per hour. that was the reason why we were able to get the containment. we're watching fort hotspots tonight. the way the wind is blowing today, the smoke and the flames are blowing away from gilroy. so continue good news on this as well. tommy see 79 degrees.
6:50 pm
i suspect at this point we should still see more forward progress as we move through tomorrow with temperatures not extremely hot. again, the lack of big-time winds. here's the deal. hot air off to the south. a cooler system to the north. sandwiched in between both of those. that's going to leave us with fog for the morning and a little bit of the cool ocean breeze. this will help to keep the 100s away. we'll start with mid to upper 50s here. 59 in the south bay. that's smoke most likely areas of smoke near gilroy. the east bay 57. also the san francisco area at 54. a nice cool start. as we move through tomorrow, temperatures warm up a couple of degrees. it's not going to get too hot. we can handle this. in the south bay, 81 in san jose. over to the east bay, we get hotter here for pittsburgh and antioch. low 90s. as you get closer to the bay, notice how the temperatures drop
6:51 pm
off. you'll be in the 70s here for oakland and hayward. the peninsula, also 70s from redwood city to san mateo. the sweet spot on the weather map. san francisco, in the 60s from the mission to the marina. the north bay, we have 83 in sonoma. 85 in santa rosa. morning fog, afternoon sunshine in san francisco. 60s as we ride through this w k week. for the inland valleys, we'll stay out of the 100s. but plenty of low 90s the next couple of days. real fast, i wanted to update you on the drought. california in a drought. severe drought, including the north bay, east bay and peninsula. this will keep the fire danger up and possibly crop damage. you know, that's par for the course this time of the year. we're only about three months away before we start hoping, praying, wishing for some more storms. everybody has to hang in there. we'll be around the corner soon on that as well.
