weekend once tropical storm barry makes landfall into the state of louisiana. so what is forming right now over the warm gulf of mexico waters and there is a hurricane watch and a storm surge warning in effect right now for the northern gulf coast. in addition to the lower mississippi valley right now it is a tropical storm with sustained winds at 45 miles per hour. and it struck right now making its way towards louisiana with sustained winds at 70 miles per hour. so it will still technically be considered a tropical storm because in order for it to reach hurricane status. it needs to have sustained winds of at least 74 miles per hour. so fortunately, it looks like it is weakening just a bit but not by much closer to home and back on land, let's take a look at our local forecast out there right now golden gate bridge noticing a very shallow marine layer, but overall clear skies and your friday microclimate forecast tracking a gradual warming trend in fact we will be a few degrees above average in downtown san

6:34 pm
to 92 degrees. so we're all going to be above average tomorrow, not just along the coast. but our interior valleys and that warming trend will continue through at least the 1st half of the weekend. little change on sunday but then cooling down just enough on monday near average along the coast and interior valleys ken pam back to risa thank you. >>another big story we are following tonight, president trump says he is abandoning the effort to add a citizenship question to the 2020 senses, instead, he will pursue other ways of getting that data joining us now is julia marsh with the asian law caucus in san francisco, so julia must be happy that the president dropped the effort to get the question on the census, but. >>he says he's going to use other means to try to pursue the data do you have any idea what he's talking about. yeah so. >>it's a big positive step that the question itself on the on the census that question causes a lot of fear. but the administration does still want to find out how many people are citizens and holby citizens. the thing
6:35 pm
everyone should know is that they've actually been planning to use administrative data for very long time this is not new. the president probably just didn't want to look like he was giving up so he brought it into his press conference today so that people are still kind of on edge and people i still know that the trump administration does pay attention to immigration and citizenship status but they are census bureau historically has collected data from a whole range of other federal government sources to try to supplement the questions that they are asking everyone in trying to build out as thorough a profile of the american people as a whole as possible to say the government already has basically has that information absolutely so the government has some information about citizenship status through a number of sources, including social social security information. passports and also a data usc
6:36 pm
i asked already has about a whole range of immigrants who come here and sign up with and give them information the supreme court ruled that the administration really had contrived a reason to add. >>the citizenship question to the census. it will be there so any other effort to get the data will it fall under the same ruling from the court. >>so that won't fall under the same ruling that ruling was about the addition of the question itself. the trump administration did this at the last minute it was totally untested and the census is supposed to ask few questions as possible to get the most accurate count possible because it's essential to how we divide up political representation and federal funding. so by adding the question they were threatening the accuracy of the count by making the form longer and by adding something so sensitive so is this a political move by the president to make it look good for his base said hey i'm out here trying to crack down on illegal immigrants. >>or was it to something to try to intimidate people from not answering the question to drive down the numbers of
6:37 pm
people who are counted that could potentially help republicans are combination of both. >>what's unfortunate is that serves both purposes it's already been such a challenge talking to people about why census participation is important and in a state like california with a very large number of immigrants, citizens, non citizens people who are documented people who are undocumented or half neighbors and friends are undocumented um we're at a very high risk for a significant undercount and every time we talk to folks about census. they have very legitimate concerns about how that information will be used. the census has very strong confidentiality protections, and the census bureau cannot share any of the information they gather with any other government agency including immigration enforcement but that's not intuitive and in these scary times. that's not necessarily enough comfort for people so just real quickly are you optimistic that without the question people will go ahead and fill out the
6:38 pm
form where optimistic more people will go ahead and fill out the form, but it's still going to be a big education campaign on the ground among. >>local officials and community based organizations. >>julia marsh from the asian law caucus, thank you for joining us and providing that information very helpful. thank you developing story we're fall we're learning new tonight the this right here is where investigators found said oakland scientist. >>who died on the island of crete it's a former not see war bunker on that greek island, 59 year-old says and even went missing last week she was attending a conference on the island. and she's believed to have disappeared during a run police are investigating her death now as a homicide. today, friends and family released tributes to be eaten through her employer describing her as an accomplished woman of insatiable curiosity but this again is the cave the bunker a world war 2 era bunker where her body was found. >>and many baby bull will take you to a california fire
