5:04 am
issue. so what's being talked about and mulled over a hearing today, it's a proposal that was written in favor of tenants. right now, the way state law stands, it's a limit to rent control and says buildings built after 1995 cannot be rent controlled as part of the act. what's being talked about today, ab1606 would get rid of that mean local governments could make rent control apply to every, single building including brand-new ones. >> at the same time, we have seen literally millions of vulnerable tenants around the state of california who are at risk of being evicted and we have to do things to protect those vulnerable tenants, as well. >> reporter: according to state law and how it stands now, when a tenant leaves a rent controlled unit, landlords are able to increase rent up to market rate. however, if the bill were to pass, that part of the law would also be dismantled. so today's hearing starts at 9:00 at the state capital. in san francisco, jackie ward,

5:07 am
whether he would give an enter view to special counsel saying there was no need to. the president repeatedly said there was no collusion. then on twitter, he once again called the investigation a witch hunt. he said that republicans should finally take control. democrats weren't happy. >> i think he is asking his party to rally around him and give him political cover to begin to put an end to this witch hunt. yet again, um, he is taking steps that depending on the context look like evidence of obstruction of this investigation. >> the president's personal attorney has filed defamation lawsuits against news website buzzfeed and research firm fusion gps over a dossier with allegations about the president's ties to russia. this morning, public health officials are urging people to get their flu vaccine. kpix 5's anne makovec is live in san jose with more on the

5:09 am

5:18 am
and napa, as well. santa rosa not bad at moment. in the low-lying areas in the hills it settles in. it's because we have a lot of moisture in the air, we're definitely feeling that. it may even be misty on your windows today. we also have barely a breeze. so yesterday we saw a lot more wind right along the coastline and that helps clear the air about today we have similar conditions as yesterday morning except no winds so very calm conditions. that's not helping blow any of that fog out. satellite-radar showing high cloud coverage and again a little bit of moisture. so it's not going to be rain. it's keeping higher. 50s in the area. our highs look like this across the south bay. low 60s for campbell, los gatos 62. fremont at 59 degrees today. so it's going to be slightly warmer than yesterday.
5:19 am
low 60s for the east bay. concord, pittsburg at 60. brentwood 61 today. high in san francisco today 59. so a few degrees warmer than right now. so our temperatures are not going to warm up too much. but they will eventually. we have high pressure out here. that's what's keeping all the storms to the north of us. and once that really arrives, you will feel that difference. it's going to be sunny and warm by the time we get to saturday. that's when that high pressure will come in keeping the storms it the north until next week when the storms dip south by tuesday. so the sunday forecast our next chance of rain. trending now, severe illness has forced willie nelson to cancel several concerts including one in the bay area. the country music legend was supposed to take the stage at graton resort & casino in rohnert park last night but that's been rescheduled. his publicist says he has the flu. on saturday, at a concert in san diego, the 84-year-old was

5:34 am
drive today. cloudy until this afternoon. and then high pressure will take over our weather pattern especially in time for the weekend. here's another view of coit tower so for now this is looking nice and clear am but we expect a lot of that fog to roll in and out. temperature-wise, we are a bit warmer. yesterday we are in the 40s for a lot of folks. this morning 53 in livermore. 53 in san francisco. san jose 54 degrees. and santa rosa a little cooler at 49. let's see how the roads are being impacted this morning. it's definitely slowing some folks down. i know it slows me down when i was coming into work but we are going to begin over at the bay bridge toll plaza. it looks like they just turned on those metering lights so it's going to get slower and slower. we have about a 12-minute ride from the maze into san francisco and we are dealing with that fog for drivers heading along the eastshore freeway. we're also tracking an accident, this is along 580. this is a look at the backup from the crash along 580 out near the altamont pass. so this is 205 as you are

5:37 am
the latest two flu-related fatalities take the total number in california to 29. 70% of those people did not get the flu shot. and health officials say it is still the best way to protect your family from the complications of flu. it's not too late to get a shot. even if it doesn't prevent you from getting the flu, it may make it less likely that you'll be seriously ill and require hospitalization. the symptoms very similar to the common cold but much more severe. the h3n2 virus is the main strain making people sick. >> some have high fever, some are scared, they are having trouble breathing. they have -- they are just not doing well. >> reporter: now, there is also a temporary shortage of flu medication across the country right now and that's due to demand. so providers though say it's not an actual shortage. it's just trouble getting it to the right places, getting it on
