5:16 pm
the skeptics, senator manchin said. he's very confident they can reach a bipartisan bill. if he's very confident he is the only one in washington who feels that way. i think we are moving toward a party line vote on it, but on other fronts, like eliminating the filibuster and passing a bill now under consideration that would usher in sweeping changes to election laws, democrats are stymied by joe manchin, who was against both efforts. i think it's the wrong piece of legislation to bring our country together and unite our country, and i'm not supporting that, because i think it would divide us further and then that is creating more and more frustration among mansions, fellow democrats who say he's playing into the hands of republicans and we can't just leave this up to the whims of mitch mcconnell and ted cruz to do the right thing. i'm sorry. and there is this sense among democrats that time is running out, especially as everyone begins to look ahead now to the midterm elections in washington. douglass ader fox news. a man from marin county, trying to become the first person to

5:18 pm
i mean, look at the size of that. so far, no reports of any injuries or damage, but authorities are warning residents to take cover as soon as possible. there are also reports of lightning and hail in the area, along with strong winds due to the storm that is producing this tornado. yeah, remarkable pictures there, and ktvu meteorologist kyler grogan has been tracking this tornado in colorado. other things stand right now. is it is it still posing a threat to people in that area? cala? yes. absolutely it is. i mean, they've had one touchdown, but you can see what a monster of a storm this is. this is, you know, as you mentioned about 35 miles north of denver, and when you have a situation like this, all you can do basically is warned people to get into an interior location of their home low interior portion with no windows. and ride it out. there's really nothing else you can do. and when you see something like this, i mean, you know, we'll find out tomorrow what this will be rated when the national weather service goes and does a survey on the ground, but i got to
5:19 pm
tell you having covered many tornadoes when i was at the weather channel. uh i don't see how this ends anyway. other than tragic, it looks like a monster of a storm. so. you know, my blood pressure is going up just looking at that, and my heart just breaks for people that are in colorado right now. so we will hope for the best there, but i have a big concerns big concerns. that is rough. we are very fortunate that we don't really have that type of weather here in california for us today. we have just been dealing with cooler temperatures and of course, wind. we're under a wind advisory. let's talk about the temperatures first. this is the difference in temperatures between 24 hours ago, and now you can see santa rosa 15 degree drop 14 and fairfield, 10 and livermore. certainly a lot. bit more moderate around the bay just a couple degrees in san francisco. notice this cameras kind of bouncing around a little shaky out there because the wind is just really ripping through san francisco today, we've had gusts upwards of 40 mph. san francisco right now. 54 degrees still, the seventies in santa rosa red full sunshine all day sixties right now in oakland, livermore
5:20 pm
and in san jose. so here's a look at the winds were gusting as you can see 37 mph at sfo 31 in hayward 25 in san jose. some some of that winds starting to work its way in and expecting it to pick up a little bit as we get later in the afternoon and into the early part of the evening. and again look at nevada right now gusting 44 mph fairfield, 41, even oakland at 36 mph. it's just a little rough out there right now. so do be careful if you're gonna be outside. um this does expire at eight o'clock tonight. the wind advisory. however the wind is going to be with us a little while just not as much right as we're going to see as we go through this evening, so it is for the north bay mountains, the east bay hills and valleys also the coast all the way from stone county down through moran down through san mateo. you know, and that does, of course, include the city of san francisco. so let's look at future cast for the wind just can show you how we're gonna get some relief from this and it's not really until we get into tomorrow. so this is 11 o'clock tonight. he's still the coast is still very, very active. and there's tuesday morning. you know things
5:21 pm
wrapped down, but we are going to stay breezy. it just won't rise to the level. that's tomorrow afternoon of a wind advisory, but just be aware it's gonna be a little bit of rough ride with the wind as we go throughout the evening, so tonight we won't see much in the way of fog because our marine layer is going to mix out again like it did overnight last night. so temperatures low forties to mid fifties as we get into tomorrow noticed, temperatures are going to roll back even further than they did today. so we're going to see some low seventies and places like up in the north bay. looks like the east bay will be a little bit warmer, but overall, we're going to see temperatures well below average. so santa rosa looking out for high of just 69 degrees, when the averages 80 u c sixties across the board there, so livermore, you, too, will be struggling to get out of the sixties. so another cool day on tap as we start off the day tomorrow in san francisco, uh, we're going to see maybe a few low clouds. that's about it, but 57 out at the coast 64 around the bay about 71 inland and again some spots. i think the north bay won't even hit the 70 degree mark, and then we have another
5:22 pm
system kind of trying to roll our way as we head into the weekend next weekend. we'll talk about that when i come back in a bit, with your extended forecast, for now, send it back to the desk. right, kyla. thank you. starting today, bart is offering more trains. the

5:34 pm
nearly one third of unvaccinated adults are waiting for full fda approval before getting their shot just because someone is hesitant to give vaccinated doesn't mean they're you know, they're anti vax. it just means they really want to make sure it goes through the right checks and balances. public health officials are now shifting focus to getting more children vaccinated after a cdc study found rising hospitalization rates among americans ages 12 through 17. fda advisers are scheduled to meet this week to discuss the vaccine safety in children 11 or younger. when i think about the vaccine and recommending the vaccine, i'm thinking about it for all of us. i'm thinking about it for my patients, but i also think think about it for my kids. dr. anthony fauci says he's optimistic. all children will be eligible for a vaccine by the end of this year in atlanta. jonathan serrie fox news, the white house is defending dr anthony fauci from calls by republican lawmakers that he should be fired or resigned. that criticism has become more intense since the
5:35 pm
release of emails that show dr fauci and other leading scientists discuss the possibility that the coronavirus escaped from a research lab in wuhan, china. white house officials say they have no interest in dismissing dr fauci. they say the lab leak theory was never rolled out and that the majority of scientists still believe covid-19 was transmitted from animals to humans. i can't put a percentage on it. i think there are two possible, um, and light scenarios. one is the one you just described that it emerged from the laboratory. the other is that it was naturally occurring. last month, president biden ordered the intelligence community to review the data on covid origins and report back to him within 90 days. the administration says it's also pushing the world health organization to open a new investigation with or without china's cooperation. some say it is a game changer for treating alzheimer's. while other experts say this new drug is not worth the risk of some of the dangerous side effects coming up next, we'll hear from an expert about this new drug.

treatment, but some medical experts say the drug is unlikely to benefit patients. ktvu heather holmes is in the newsroom and heather earlier on the four today you talked with the disease expert about this new drug, and julie she's hopeful that this new drug will in fact help while it is not a cure and does not reverse the diseases progression, she called it a big day for patients. but as we mentioned
5:39 pm
the approval is controversial. this is the first though new treatment for alzheimer's and almost 20 years. the fda says the drug which is called as you, can you grab targets the underlying cause of the brain destroying disease, rather than just managing the symptoms. drugmaker biogen says the treatment slows cognitive decline and patient's. the fda approval, though, comes despite contradictory findings from the agency's independent advisors that said the drug had not shown to help treat the disease now, earlier on the floor, i spoke with elizabeth edgerly. she is the executive director of the alzheimer's association, northern california and northern nevada chapter, and she understands the questions over the clinical evidence but believes this drug will help to slow the rate of cognitive and functional decline. so this drug focuses on one of the characteristics of alzheimer's, which is called amyloid or class. you may have heard it referred to that. and this drug
5:40 pm
is what's called the monoclonal antibody, so it uses antibodies to clear the brain of this amyloid plaque. and by doing that it slows the progression of a whole cascade of events that occur in the brains of people with alzheimer's. it is administered through an i v infusion, and that would take place for about 45 to 60 minutes once a month and hopefully as a result of that people will see improved cognition, or at least they will be able to stay intact for a longer period of time. obviously it's not ideal. we wish that everyone give it two thumbs up and said yes, this is strong data. but for the fda what they said loud and clear is that there was enough strength in the data to approve it going forward. but they also added that we need to do more research on this drug, so they required that it undergo page four. testing in a clinical
5:41 pm
trial so as it's available to the public. they will continue to gather more evidence and so hopefully it will show that in fact it is effective and will be able to see not only this drug, but maybe even additional ones entered the market in the future. now there are also questions about the cost, which would be about $56,000 a year. now, keep in mind. that is a list price, not the net price or the price paid by patients with insurance. so, julie how much patients will pay out of pocket for the drug will, of course, depend on their insurance coverage. the association though, and elizabeth, they're telling me that they will begin educating people on this drug and also ensuring access to it. and heather. are there any other drugs available right now? well there are julie, but they're designed to preserve memory by balancing certain neurotransmitters in the brain. but the problem is that. the effects fade over time. so again, they're hoping that this drug which will really treat the symptoms on the at the onset will be much more

the children had to put up with before here's would find a lot of pleasures out of playing with the dumpsters because there was anything in the community that they could do. there was nothing that provided in the community. that was fun for the children department says. this is the first and only skybridge in any park in california and look at this kids are running around here, but this is nice and soft and what that means. maybe a little hurt pride but no broken bones. but. does it pass the all important mom test. this is what we need. you know, we need more more spaces for kids to feel like they're free because i feel like we live in a city that's so compact. nowadays, it gives them hope, and it gives some ambition and i think it's important that if they could see that this happens, you know they could do anything. and what about the great grandmother test? we need to see something so we can feel comfortable for our younger generation. and, of course, the acid test. what do the kids say? it's a very good playground and not like it, and they and they get a they did a
5:48 pm
very good job on it. it's really fun. they all like hardy designing. that's why it goes about 400 mph, a wonderful addition to the community, perhaps decades late, but wonderful nonetheless, tom vacar ktvu, fox two news. that is so cool. i love seeing kids out and about it's nice to see kids back on a playground to right now that we have less restrictions, and they can do that. so enjoy. okay so today we had some pretty nice weather with the accepted the fact that it was really windy out there and still is temperatures much cooler today, especially inland. not a big difference around the bay. right so san francisco 60 degrees today, but check out livermore. they only got up to 71. we did have a little heat out there. santa rosa up at the snow. a county airport got up to 80 to san jose about 70, but noticed hayward, redwood city, san vito, all in the low sixties. today live look outside shows you that we got those blue skies and it is pretty much bay area. why today we had that marine layer really mix out and allow that sunshine
5:49 pm
to get in there early today, which was nice, but, man oh, man, is the wind blowing look at the gust right now in nevado 40 mph 41 in fairfield 33 napa 36 in oakland. it is just all across the bay area that we're seeing this north northwest wind roll in and you know, it's kind of making it into some of those passes and gaps as well. you can see sfo right now about 37 mph gusts. it's making it over to. hey, we're there there above 30 mph. so it's windy and you know, we are still under that wind advisory until eight o'clock tonight. current temperatures right now 56 in san francisco. we do have a little workout. they're still conquered santa rosa still in the seventies mountain view about 64, but it really is the wind. that's kind of the stories we go into this evening. now we have relatively clear skies, but it's kind of an interesting position that we're in because to the north of us is the low pressure system. that's kind of driving this temperature drop and also bringing in that northwest wind and you can see it brings rain into places like portland and seattle. but to the south of us as well. we have low pressure that is sitting right off the
5:50 pm
coast of los angeles. now that combination is actually what's helped to mix that marine layer out so that we didn't have, you know, pervasive cloud cover this morning, and that will be with us again tomorrow as well. so tonight we're to call it mostly clear, some breezy conditions out there downright windy. in some spots. temperatures will be, you know, low forties if you're up in the north bacon a little chilly up there 51 in san francisco, mostly low fifties around the bay tomorrow. if you low clouds could make it into the bay, but i don't think it'll be much similar to today and san francisco. you should be looking at some nice sunshine. in fact, sunshine for all as we get into the afternoon highs across the bay, jamar will be cooler than today. so check out the north bay where we probably won't get out of the sixties could see a few seventies places like concord, fairfield anti knock maybe morgan hill, but san francisco are going to hold steady there at about 60 degrees, and we'll keep those sixties right around the bay. here's a look at your extended forecast and continue to cool down as we get into wednesday. that'll be our coolest day. we're gonna be a little breezy. we're going to lose the wind advisory tonight, but that breezy condition will kind of
5:51 pm
stick with us, just to a lesser degree as we go through the first part of this week, then we start to warm up on thursday, friday and saturday. another low pressure system coming in that i was hoping might bring us a few north based sprinkles, but the models now pulling back from that it looks like that precipitation is likely to stay north of us. of course, i will certainly keep an eye on it. but that's where we stand. little windy and a little cool this week. julie back to you. yeah that wind is strong out there in places, kyla. thank you. well france is sending a new statue of liberty to the u. s a smaller replica version is being gifted by france to mark our independence day. the bronze statue is about 10 ft. tall it's all packed up and will travel on a container ship to ellis island, arriving just in time for the fourth of july. 10 days later, the mini lady liberty will go on display outside the french embassy in washington, d. c to commemorate this steel day. the original lady liberty was gifted by france to the u. s in 18 85. amazon founder jeff bezoza has announced he is going to travel
