can't see and not only a satellite put the radar, some showers and thunderstorms developing in the southern sierra, so south of lake tahoe, we have some of some lightning strikes being detected. at least us of that moisture, creating some instability. and we also have this. the more low clouds and fog right near the immediate coastline to the beaches. is definitely on the cool and foggy side. in fact, this satellite image looks like yesterday satellite image with the glow clouds and fog out toward ocean beach out toward golden gate park and already pushing back into a san francisco bay for this evening current numbers out there we view spots still in the eighties out toward fairfield 86 degrees 82 in san jose, oakland, 64 in san francisco, has cooled up into the upper fifties. we're showing you some of the wind speeds out there. it is breezy in a few spots, nothing extremely strong, but still went around 15 to around 20 miles an hour if it's stronger out toward sfo, with that wind gust of up to 25. we showed you the fog and the satellite here is the real deal. our live camera looking out toward the golden gate bridge is some cloud cover
here. so already a cloudy start as we head into the evening hours near the shoreline, so real wake up to some gray first thing tomorrow morning. now the key change into your thursday forecast. it's a subtle change receive a change in the wind direction out of the north, and that should lead two warmer temperatures, especially up in the north bay place like santa rosa in the in the seventies today, back up into the upper eighties, maybe approaching 90 degrees for tomorrow afternoon, so a little bit of a warm up as we head into your thursday, but the cooling definitely dominates the five day forecast. we'll have more on that coming up in just a few minutes, mark. thank you. the world's best get ready to tee off at the us open in san francisco coming up next we'll go live to the olympic club and hear from a former us champ who has strong ties to the bay area. but first here's what's coming up tonight on ktvu. the fun starts at eight o'clock with master chef that's followed by crime scene kitchen at nine. then stay tuned for the 10 and 11 o'clock news

begins tomorrow at the olympic club. yesterday we caught up with michelle wie and today joe fonzi is live with another former u. s champion with very strong bay area ties. joe how exciting to see this event happening, no question about it, janna, and you know where i'm standing right now we're out, i'd say about 200 yards beyond the first t. so if you're on the first tee tomorrow, you're going to end up with your second shot. little beyond me. and as you said, not only do we have one, but we have two people with barrier roots. who are former us open winners we did catch up with michelle wie yesterday. today a young woman who played her childhood golf in the east bay. yeah, it doesn't matter when you do it, win the us open and it's career defining for
paula kramer, who grew up in pleasant in that moment was 11 years ago when she was just 23. before that open. creamer had already won eight tour events, too. when she was only 18. it still gives me goosebumps thinking about it. you know, the competitor in me wants me to have it. so it's like 2020 2020, not 2010. i feel like that's a long time ago. you know, i want it now. um but at the same time you got to take it day by day kind of thing. cramer got to a million dollars in earnings younger and faster than any player in lpga history. but in recent years, your career has been slowed by a wrist injury that required surgery. she received a special exemption to play in this year's open and now at age 34 has a different perspective. i look at my career and i would say to myself if i was younger than to enjoy those winds more, you know, i was just so focused all the time you went on a sunday and it was like the next tournament starts monday, you
know, never, ever really sat there and, you know, pat yourself on the back. i feel the best i've felt in probably six years. quite truthfully. cramer now lives in florida, but hasn't forgotten where it also. started. it's great to be back home haven't been back for quite a while. and my first stop was togo's. it's like my favorite sandwich place in the world and went straight there from the airport since that open win in 2010, cramer has won just one tour event seven years ago. in this year of unlikely veteran winners. it would be fitting if her next to her wind comes this weekend in a homecoming. all right. i got to show you guys something the reason that we're standing out here in the rough right off the first heat number one you heard paul cramer referenced the fact that she's recovering from re surgery. we heard michelle. we say the same thing yesterday. and what the u. s open. traditionally does. is it rewards accuracy? it penalizes you if you're inaccurate. if
you look at their you can really see the difference between being in the fairway where the ball would sit up very nicely for your second shot or being in the rough and just to give you the contrast. look how deep that ball is right there on the rough trying to get out of there. it's a completely different club. it's a whole different ball game. you got to muscle it out. so if you've had wrist surgery, that's something that you're concerned about. so look for them to stay in the fairway and certainly want to do that. and that is a characteristic of the u. s open. thanks so much, so that's a great illustration to usually you're looking at it. it's all two dimensional, but that really kind of puts a fine point on it. appreciate it. and thanks for that interview, it's great to see a local bay area golfer do so well. be back out there, all right, coming up for us here on the forest cyber attack on the world's largest meat supplier. coming up a look at how this could impact meat prices and suspected energy attacks on u. s diplomats. brains sounds like something out of a spy movie. but now the government is looking into more than 100 suspected cases. we'll
than 100 suspected cases. we'll have details coming up. ready. set. summer. get ready for summer, with fresh starts... quick auditions... save on appliances, like this lg refrigerator. the home depot. how doers get more done. when you're born and raised in san francisco, like thi you grow uprator. wanting to make a difference. that's why, at recology, we're proud to be 100% employee owned with local workers as diverse as san francisco. we built the city's recycling system from the ground up, helping to make san francisco the greenest big city in america but we couldn't do it without you. thank you, san francisco. gracias, san francisco. -thank you. -[ speaks native language ] let's keep making a differene together.
after a cyber attack and the intrusion is raising new concerns about the vulnerability of cybersecurity foxes. alicia acuna has more. employees headed back to work at jbs plans across the country on wednesday, the world's largest meat supplier is back online after a cyberattacksay, s cybersecurity and
infrastructure security agency says it became aware of the intrusion on monday and is working with the fbi. the white house says a criminal group likely based in russia is thought to be responsible and is working directly with russia's government to stop future attacks. this is an issue that we have discussed with the russian government the specific issue and we've discussed it in the past and delivered the message that responsible states do not harbor ransomware criminals. the attack, raising new concerns about the nation's cybersecurity. just last month, the colonial pipeline was targeted by a criminal group based in russia. president biden and russian president vladimir putin are expected to discuss the topic at a scheduled summit in geneva this month. the united states can't afford to walk away from the table and just not talk to russia over something like this, especially when we can't prove that the government had anything to do with it. meanwhile, the department of agriculture says there are no indication so far of a meat shortage here in the u. s. but prices could continue to increase due to covid and the weather. the free cost is certainly has increased dramatically. over the past
year, talked about 40 to 50% and that is going to the meat. and just this morning, another ransomware attack impacting ferry service to martha's vineyard and nantucket and grilli, colorado. alicia acuna, fox news president biden met today with a key gop senator in an effort to hammer out a deal on his infrastructure proposal. the president held an oval office meeting with west virginia senator shelley moore capito. they're trying to find some common ground between biden's on most $2 trillion plan and the republicans $900 billion counter offer. i really believe that we should keep working at it. but if we get to the point where there's no more conversation we had then we move on patients is not unending, and he wants to make progress. his only line in the sand is an action he wants to sign. a bill into law this summer. while the white house is hoping for a bipartisan agreement. some democrats want the president to move forward
with a bill through a process known as budget reconciliation. the president says he wants movement toward the bill by june 7th. there is growing mystery surrounding dozens of suspected attacks on the brains of u. s diplomats and national security officials. there's speculation that these might be so called energy attacks using a microwave or radio wave weapon. 130 cases are now under investigation. and we're joined today by attorney mark zaid zaid rather who represents some of the people who have fallen here will and thank you so much for joining us today. it's my pleasure. thanks i want to start off and just ask you. first of all, you know the sounds too many people like a kind of science fiction. what are your clients telling you about the sensations that they had the feelings that they had when these symptoms first began. sure well, there's a few things to understand. first. this has been going on for years. in fact, decades and the
u. s government has not officially acknowledged that long before havana, cuba in 2016, and it's impacting far more numbers than what has been publicly acknowledged. but with respect to what they're feeling, it varies. i mean, just think of anyone physiologically as to what they might how they might be impacted by any types of different. this is, uh, you know those who get the flu, maybe more severely impacted than others were covid or whatever it might be, but there's a lot of issues with migraines, nausea, vertigo, forgetfulness, sort of like a fog of the of the brain. and significant pain, depending on who the person is, and i've heard this called the havana syndrome. but you mentioned that this has been going on just beyond just the havana issue. where are you finding these cases? right so i came into this case back in 2013 3
years before havana, working on a case involving an nsa national security agency case officer and that individual was hit by some sort of microwave weapon back in the mid 19 nineties, and in fact, they gave me an unclassified memorandum in 2014, indicating that it had evidence that a foreign adversary was using mike. the wave weapons to maim or kill? uh so this has been going on for a long time. unfortunately because it wasn't known predominant least before havana many keep calling it havana syndrome. but that's really a misnomer because it is happening around the world. russia as i think i heard you guys mentioned is the primary suspect, but i would style any country that really has a connection to russia is likely on that. list of possible perpetrators. and you said that you saw some documentation about a foreign entity. what
entity was that? it wasn't identified in the memo. the unclassified memo that i was given the name is considered classified by the national security agency. but the country that we predominantly here as the perpetrator is russia. and scientists are saying that they they aren't sure whether this is a weapon or an attack in all of these cases, or maybe even a side effect, perhaps from some surveillance equipment. what is it that you want to see the government do? well, we want more transparency, that's for sure. i mean, subject obviously to national security concerns, but i think we've got into a point where that's going to be really difficult to do. sort of the cat is out of the bag, so to speak when i was first handed in this case almost a decade ago. no, we were keeping it really quiet. we really thought we only had a very small number of people. there were two who were impacted. one has since died with my original client, and i knew of possibly
some others. now we're talking hundreds. i think it's impossible for the government to keep this quiet. so the first and foremost thing we want to do is make sure everyone of our people are treated from a health perspective so that they're okay so that they can continue on in their careers, but at some point time we're going to need to know who has been doing this to our people. and what as the united states government been doing in response, and i'll say this is not a political issue. it doesn't matter whether it was democrats or republicans in the white house. like i said, it's been going on literally for decades. i have evidence going back to the late 19 sixties early 19 seventies that the government for dominantly within the intelligence community was aware of this, so it's about time that we get greater transparency, so that all americans know what's going on. certainly raising a lot of questions. mark zaid. thank you so much for joining us today. thank you up next for us here on the floor. it's a beacon of light. san francisco's massive
pink triangle was lit up last night for pride month. up next we'll hear from the founder and organizer of the annual event, which is now in its 26th year. atteberry weather temperatures have been cooling off a little bit over the past few days. tomorrow, though, should be a different story. or at least a minor warmup editor away and minor warmup editor away and will have your forecast i was injured in a car crash. minori had no idea how muchd will hamy case was worth. i called the barnes firm. when a truck hit my son, i had so many questions about his case. i called the barnes firm. it was the best call i could've made. your case is often worth more than insurance offers. call the barnes firm to find out we will help get you the best result possible. ♪ the barnes firm, eight million ♪,

the sierra. look at that steady decline and june 1st down to 0% of average for this time of year, so that snow pack of dwindling away in the mountains in fact, in the mountains right now, we have some showers and thunderstorms, especially south of lake tahoe this afternoon. we have this more low clouds and fog right near the immediate coastline. the clouds get ready to make their push back into the bay, in fact, already that it's already happening over san francisco and approaching the bay bridge. this afternoon. current numbers out there warm spots in the eighties outdoor concord, walnut creek. the cool spots near the shoreline in san francisco in the fifties. santa rosa in the upper seventies and the wind speeds. it's a breezy afternoon. nothing extremely strong, but winds most areas around 10 to 20 miles an hour that typical onshore breeze which has been cooling off the bay area. here is the live camera looking out toward the golden gate bridge. we're checking out traffic as well. you can still see the clouds now. you could notice you can actually see that howard. i'm not talking about real dent fog
that's kind of hiding the bridge, but still the of the fog is out there, mainly some low clouds making their way back into the bay overnight overnight. in fact, first thing tomorrow morning we'll start out tomorrow morning in the low fifties to lower sixties. tomorrow should be a bit warmer than today, especially up in the north bay, and that will lead to upper fifties coast side warm spots inland, getting close to 90 degrees. in fact, here's look at your forecast highs for tomorrow with santa rosa and napa. the warm spots. really? yeah. noticing the impact of that warmer northerly breeze in place for tomorrow, so santa rosa 89 antioch 90 fairfield 90. degrees san jose 80 hayward 73. with that change in the wind direction places like sonoma county, napa county, they noticed the biggest warm up and that'll be the case for tomorrow's just amazing. the overall weather patterns not changing. it's just a change in the wind direction that will impact our temperatures in your thursday forecast, as we head into friday will cool things off a little bit as we head into saturday will warp things back. up, so we're just talking about minor day to day changes
headed our way. but it does look like look like a pronounced cool down by sunday and into early next week. so if you want that cooler, refreshing marine area, probably like the at least the second half of the weekend and into next week, but at least we're not talking about any major heat in the berry forecast. okay, mark. thank you. pride month kicked off in san francisco with the lighting of the pink triangle on san francisco's twin peaks. the rain. what hit it. san francisco mayor london breed and house speaker nancy pelosi. we're both on hand to help switch on the 2700 pink led lights. this is the 26th annual pink triangle ceremony and joining us now to talk more about the event is organizer patrick carney. patrick great to have you on here today. uh last night, a boy. we saw the footage. it was cold. it was. foggy it was windy up there on twin peaks last night, but you
know, i could tell the weather did not dampen anyone's spirits up there. talk about why it's so important to make sure this happens every year and that we have the pink triangle lit above the city of san francisco. well, part of celebrating and appreciating pride for any year is understanding where we've been, and that giant pink triangle is where we've been. it's a reminder and a warning of what can happen when a jew hatred and bigotry go unchecked. uh you know, beyond you know, being a symbol obviously of the progress that has been made, um you say that the pink triangle above san francisco is a big giant learning tool. why do you call it that? well the first pink triangle we snuck up and put it up in the dark of night so we wouldn't get arrested. and then afterwards, we realized a lot of people didn't know what it meant. even young gay people chapters in human history. so many people think it was another colourful gay symbols like the rainbow flag.
of course, the rainbow flag was born out of hope and love and optimism. but the pink triangle is a reminder of the hatred of the past, the devised to hold a ray and colored triangles, too. to mark their undesirables yellow for jews and pink for homosexuals. they targeted gypsies and immigrants, etcetera, etcetera, so it's a reminder of what can happen. and so that's why it continues. that's why i also founded the commemoration ceremony to teach people of what used to happen. it starts out as sort of a somber kick off the cried weekend and then we. we celebrate by making up more festive, so we put on our pink hats and everything else that goes from a somber kick off to a very active and vibrant remembrance of the progress we've made, and no one could speak better to the progress we made in the woman whose life irresponsible and that's around area very on congress person. house speaker nancy pelosi, and
