6:06 pm
those who would like to see california split into three states. today the supreme court took the initiative off the november ballot. but the issue, it isn't over. abc 7 news anchor kristen sze is here with those details. kristen? >> ama, the center of the fight, whether to let californians vote on a plan to split the state into three. northern california, which includes the bay area, southern california, which includes fresno, and california, which includes the los angeles area. the proposal qualified for the november ballot after its author and a backer, venture capitalist tim draper gathered over 400,000 valid signatures. but today the supreme court blocked prop 9 from oy peering on the november ballot. the ruling says significant questions have been raised regarding the proposition's validity, and the potential harm in permitting the measure to remain on the ballot outweighs the potential harm in delaying the proposition to a future election. the court ruled in response to opponents' lawsuit, arguing the proposal would have abolished the state constitution. the issue is not dead, though.
6:07 pm
now comes a legal battle fought on many fronts. californians could still have a chance to vote on the split as early as 2020. dan and ama? >> okay, kristen, thank you. today for the first time, pg&e showed off the new weather station. it's going up across northern california to monitor for increasing fire danger. abc 7 news reporter leslie brinkley is live at the caldecott tunnel tonight, where one of the new stations is streaming data. lesl leslie, even as we speak. >> and there is more to it than that, dan. actually, in the next couple of months or the fall, you could end up getting an e-mail or a text message from pg&e telling you are preemptively going to cut off your electricity because your neighborhood or area might be deemed a high fire danger. extreme hot weather and unprecedented wildfires prompted pg&e to launch a new three-prong approach to addressing what they call the new normal, an almost year-round fire season.
6:08 pm
first, they're putting up weather stations like this one above the caldecott tunnel on the oakland approach. >> these stations will be measuring wind speed, wind direction, temperature and relative humidity. and the data is streamed into our systems. >> so far 50 stations like this are installed. 150 more will be in place in northern and central california. by the end of 2018. step two, a brand-new pg&e wildfire safety operations center that just opened this spring in san francisco. there analysts will monitor data from the new weather stations as well as information about vegetation and dead trees. if fire danger is perceived on the extreme, number three comes into play. for the first time, pg&e can proactively shut down electricity to particular areas or neighborhoods. >> that's a last resort, but if conditions are right and we feel that it would be safer to turn off power, having some of this weather data will allow us to do that. we will give customers as much notice as we can, hopefully 48
6:09 pm
hours notice. >> but it could be as little as one hour's notice under this new pg&e wildfire protocol. that's why they want to make sure they can text or e-mail customers if they feel they must shut down power to an area. >> so we're really asking them to go to our websites and to update their contact information so that we can give them as much notice ahead of time as possible. >> you'll find a link up on our website,, on our home page, so that you can update your information with pg&e. leslie brinkley, abc 7 news. >> all right, leslie, thank you. two firefighters have been injured battling the ferguson fire near yosemite. another firefighter has also died. the fire has burned more than 17,000 acres since friday, and it's only 5% contained. reporter natalie granda from our sister station in fresno joins us live from mariposa with the latest on the firefight.

>> absolutely. time to check on our weather as we hit midweek. >> spencer christian is here with the forecast. expenser? >> another warm summer day is winding down. a beautiful evening right now. here is a look at live doppler 7. we have sunny skies over most of the bay and inland, but i say most of the bay because the coastal fog is pushing out over parts of the bay right now. it's still pretty breezy out there. we have 22-mile-per-hour winds at san francisco. gusts to 22 at concord and all around the bay area basically 15 to 20 miles per hour surface winds. this is a view of the fog rolling in from our emeryville camera. it is currently 63 degrees at san francisco. oakland 64. 70 at mountain view. 79 at san jose. 83 gilroy. 59 at half moon bay. here is a view of the fog from above the fog, looking down from sutro tower. up north 73 degrees at napa and santa rosa. 81 at novato. fairfield 87. 91 at concord and 90 at livermore. a wider, higher view of the follow rolling in from the east bay hills. we'll have higher humidity the
6:21 pm
next couple of days and a slight chance of isolated thundershowers, and then our typical summer pattern will kick in for the weekend. the humidity will go down. here is one reason for the increase in humidity. you can see some monsoonal moisture from the southwestern u.s. flowing up into southern central california. some of that moisture is working its way into the bay area, and will give us sort of a muggy feeling to the air over the next day or so. forecast animation going into the overnight hours shows the fog will surge across the bay. but more significantly, perhaps, is that surge of moisture up along the sierra tomorrow which will fuel the possibility of thunderstorms there, and maybe a spill-over thunderstorm or two will move toward the bay area. so the greater concern or the greater chance for thunderstorms tomorrow is over in the sierra and in the foothills and down into the central parts of the valley as well. there is an outside chance we may see an isolated shower or thundershower here. overnight, fog pushes out over the bay. overnight lows will range from mid- to upper 50s for the most part. then tomorrow look for high temperatures ranging from mid-60s at the coast to mid and upper 70s, maybe a few low 80s
6:22 pm
around the bay. inland, it will be warm and it will feel muggy with high temperatures mainly in mid-90s and farther nor, lake port, 101. ukiah, 104. that's pretty warm. here is a look at the accuweather seven-day forecast. we have two warm and muggy days. certainly warm inland coming our way. then on saturday, the temperatures drop a little bit as well will the humidity. so over the weekend warm very, very pleasant weather. and it starts to heat up again early next week. >> thanks, spencer, so much. here is a sweet deal. free fries a

6:33 pm
that means being a citizen, having a greencard, work visa, or a student visa. and a social security number, which means you have to be a legal u.s. resident and provide documents. but lyft says lazo fraudulently represented himself. there is another reason why he passed the background checks. district attorney spokesman alex sebastian. >> this defendant, as far as i can tell has no criminal history. >> one footnote. neither lyft nor uber requires drivers to get fingerprinted. the state public utilities commission sided with the ride sharing companies in its ruling last fall that it was unnecessary. vic lee, abc 7 news. president trump reversed course today about vladimir putin's involvement in russia's meddling in the 2016 u.s. election. president trump told cbs he would consider putin culpable because he is russia's leader. though president trump appeared to once again split from his intelligence leaders in his response to a question about whether he believes russia is still targeting the u.s.
