helping to stream in clouds for parts of the bay area but you can see throughout the north bay, a lot more blue sky right now but slightly cooler temperature at 59 and that's because that ocean breeze is pushing right in throughout moran, napa and sonoma. the ocean breeze will come into play tomorrow morning. notice it's not going to be the sunniest of starts. we'll have a cool start with 47 and clouds and drizzle in san francisco and 52. potentially drizzle in the peninsula at 53 and south bay with a mix of sun and clouds with 51. through tomorrow's forecast, a degree or two and will stay dry and a mix of sun for partly cloudy skies. the south bay at 68 and peninsula 65 and the north bay going up tomorrow to an anticipated 70. as you've probably seen on the schooling seven-day forecast we're looking at the chance of rainfall. you'll see by 11:30 on wednesday, the rain starts to

6:26 pm
>> once we got it back and communicating with it, we're able to download logs and files that have been stored on board and we're using to decipher what went wrong. >> reporter: nasa says the goal in the future is to point kepler towards the center of the milky way galaxy. the goal is to find more plan s planets. scott, thank you. up next, get ready for the california primary. lar larry gur ston breaking down the crash flowing into our state. i'm robert honda. a delayed $300 million project is not in limbo any more. a full work force back on sight. the first look of the work going on inside. it's a huge construction project

6:30 pm
over. >> the new vmc is not a haunted house anymore after months of being mouth baing mothballed. >> 200 people today in the building making substantial progress on the sixth, fifth and fourth floors in terms of finishing and getting rooms ready for final inspection. >> reporter: workers are plowing ahead to finish services including intensive care, expanded burn unit, spinal cord, brain and rehab program. >> it serves this community on a regional basis, not just individuals from santa clara county. >> reporter: the county and turner are anxious to show previous problems are behind them. for example, turner reengineered the system of steam pipes that led to this scary explosion where a worker was injured in
6:31 pm
2014. >> hey, guys, come on! >> reporter: also, the water damaged roof that turner once wanted to patch up will instead be replaced. >> we'll have a brand-new roof. all warranted ready to go for the next ten years. >> reporter: that's quite a change. >> a huge change in attitude. >> the level of commitment, the level of collaboration and problem solving that goes on today, it's night and day. >> it is a big change and now officials say they hope to finish work by june of next year and start taking patients january 2018. live in san jose, robert honda, nbc bay area news. >> thanks, robert. >> one week after signing the first $15 minimum wage bill, governor jerry brown is green lighting for legislation this time far family leave. the state will pay families up to 55% of the standard paycheck for up to six weeks. the law signed today raises that reimbursement rate to 70% for
6:32 pm
the lowest paid workers. >> so it's a real pleasure to be able to sign another bill that helps ordinary californians, working men and women. >> the new paid family leave law takes effect in 2018. president obama took notice saying quote, congress needs to catch up to california and to countries all over the world by acting to guarantee paid family leave to all americans. this is a big issue across the bay area, a renter's rights, the key top pick of a special meeting tonight. it's happening right now. the city counsel is considering an emergency ordinance it calls for landlords to pay tenants relocation expenses. if approved, the ordinance would apply to tenants evicted for no reason or face a dramatic increase in rent. >> scarier than we thought, that's what top u.s. health experts are saying about the zika virus that are requesting for money for research into vaccines. the virus is linked to mi
6:33 pm
microcephaly. experts believe zika may also be causing premature birth and vision problems. the national institute of health asked congress for $1.9 billion to fight the virus. first bruce springstene and brian adams, cancelling shows because of controversial state laws. brian adams was scheduled to play in mississippi this week on thursday. today he announced he won't perform where quote certain people are denied their civil rights due to their sexual orientation. the state's new law allows religious groups and some private businesses to refuse service to same-sex couples. springstene recently cancelled a concert in north carolina. big thumbs up for president obama and a bigger thumbs down for congress how californians feel in the latest exclusive nbc bay area field poll. 59% of voters approve of the job the president is doing. 38% disapprove.
6:34 pm
this rating is similar to the high mark californians gave presidents but much more positive than george w bush. look how voters feel about congress. 15% approve of the job senators and representatives are doggiin. 80% disapprove. part of the reason is because of a stalemate. hundreds of people took to capitol hill hoping to be arrested. many got what they wanted. a loud scene outside. the group democracy spring is staging a week-long sit in. protesters are calling for votes on legislation that were reformed the public campaign finance system. they say congress needs to act now to protect the voting rights of every american. we are no longer just a fundraising stop. california actually matters this election or so we think. we're the big prize for republican candidates in search for delegates for their
6:35 pm
nomination. larry gerston is here, and larry, show us the money here. >> you know, for once it does. historically, we're not used to this kind of thing. the candidates raise money here and spend it elsewhere. that's how it goes and in 2012 for example, democrat barack obama raised $63 million in california, republican mitt romney raised $41 million and guess what? virtually all of it went away to other states. why? because everyone knew obama would carry california. no reason to spend it here. >> different this time around. what about the spend thing time around? >> amazing. so far republican candidates have taken very little from california, again, because the state just hasn't been in play. so here is what has been erased so far. $3 million for example for ted cruz. $750,000 for kasich. $210,000 for trump. you know, these are small amounts of money and the fact of the matter is, you know, it
6:36 pm
doesn't include the other think and that is funds that have been raised by super pacs because they are not broken down state by state. not talking about a lot. >> we talk this money big or small and what about spend income california? we talk about it's leaving the state. what about this time? >> it's all different. uncertain political environment for candidates means uncharacteristic wind fall for california. the donald trump campaign expects, guess what, to spend at least $10 million on the california primary. the ted cruz campaign has been working quietly in california for more than eight months and has the best ground operation in california and the campaign and super pacs have 28 million dollars on hand. even john kasich, we think he's out of it but still in the game thanks in part to an endorsement by former governor arnold schwarzenegger and some of his
6:37 pm
friends. there is at least one big super pac committee not affiliated with anyone raising money just to defeat donald trump. a lot of money coming here. >> it's just floating around. anyway to tell how much these candidates as you refer to the super pacs are likely to spend and maybe how they are spending it with come merm it? >> look, california's 172 delegates will be the biggest prize of the entire republican campaign. as well as the last opportunity for candidates to gather delegates. with that much at steak, there could be anything going on but one thing we know for sure, it could be as much as 30 or $40 million flooding the airways and mailboxes in ways we just haven't seen in decades. >> it's been awhile. 172 delegates. june 7th is the primary.

6:42 pm
expected to make up the difference suggesting prices are going up. >> did you say beer prices are going up? oh my goodness. looking on twitter, facebook and social media. is it 6:42 p.m. or a.m. because we have laura garcia-cannon with us. >> she's on a 20-hour shift. >> i've got to go to bed after this and get up tomorrow morning. >> i don't think i've seen you in person in like two years. >> i'm a lot taller in person. >> you are.

6:48 pm
forecast, should we have the top up or down? >> i'll give it a go. a live look after that rainfall that left us with a half inch to an inch and a quarter across the bay area. currently dry from santa rosa towards san jose and to the sky camera network, some mix of conditions. sun and also completely over kacast skies. clouds beginning roll . clouds really ramping up across the pa neeninsupeninsula. with these clouds increasing, a westerly wind at the coastline will allow for fog to come back for tomorrow morning. not a super sunny start. more of an over cast spot. a few areas of mist and drizzle for the peninsula, as well. temperatures in the upper 40s to mid 50s. area of high pressure offshore and the storm system headed towards washington and oregon
6:49 pm
away from us. we'll stay dry through tomorrow but there are changes coming our way. you may have noticed on the schooling seven-day forecast with the possibility of rainfall by thursday. let's go ahead and take you to that. you can see the storm system is about 1200 miles out in the pacific but by all indications, every single forecast model is showing that chance of rainfall by thursday from this. so how much rainfall would we pick up by thursday morning? looks like it will move in from 3:00 to 7:00 a.m. not a super heavy rain we're looking at but from a tenth to a quarter inch expected here throughout the north bay. down towards san jose and locked in for a tenth of an inch. the biggest problem would be slick roads and that's just about it. it will be good news to continue to help keep the fire danger down. as we look at the forecast tomorrow, temperatures near average. san francisco has a little more cloud cover hanging out near the marina and 60 and more sunshine towards the financial district but not a big jump in
6:50 pm
temperatures. peninsula 66 and 63 san mateo and trend once we get to the immediate coastline cooler with 58. for san jose, 69 degrees. tomorrow over here towards morgan hills 68. to the north bay, east bay and for the try valley. warmest weather, napa and santa rosa. enjoy the low 70s on tuesday because as you'll see in the schooli scrolling seven-day forecast, numbers will be dropping. oakland 66, free month at 67 and tri-valley warmest weather at 70. as we get an overall look at the rain outlook through the next several weeks we'll find once again is the next chance of rain late wednesday night into thursday morning. dry this weekend with 80s expected inland on sunday. so quite a warmup expected for the saturday and sunday and then as we look ahead towards the rest of april, also may above average rain chances. so this storm system this week certainly won't be our last wet
6:51 pm
