crime in mexico. a white house lawyer has been talking in the investigation into whether president trump obstructed justice.

7:16 am
ones. >> reporter: they adopted them at the san jose animal care center. >> the kids have been wanted pets for a while. this presents a great opportunity. >> some shelters, when they reach their limit, that's it. they can't take new pets that need to be relinquished. giving them a home opens another spot to get a home. >> reporter: other she wanters were participating in clear the shelters, sponsored by nbc bay area and tele-mundo 48. other places fees were reduced or free from san francisco to berkeley. >> we were walking by and saw a cute puppy here. it really needs a home and now she is happy and loves us so much. i'm so happy and the family is happy. >> we have very special friends here with us today. >> reporter: in walnut creek, they were spreading the word. >> he is hoping for a forever home.

reporters posted videos of their day at shelters across the bay area. you know for a fact the puppies got adopted, but we don't know if the kitties got adopted. there's still time to take them home. >> if you brought home a new dog yesterday, good walking weather this morning. >> yeah. >> low clouds, misty skies this afternoon. the temperatures will be heating up. more 90s in the east bay areas. the fog is back at sfo. temperatures in the 50s and having an impact, not surprising on flights. some arriving flights delayed by 39 minutes. we'll see if the times expand due to the reduced vizibilities and low cloud cover right over sfo this morning. no low clouds around concord or walnut creek. waking up to temperatures in the 50s. later on, numbers in the 90s expected in concord and san
7:19 am
jose. overcast and clouds in the valley, close to 60 degrees. for the afternoon, places like san jose will likely see the worst of the air quality. unhealthy for sensitive groups. that's why we have the spare the air alerts continuing for today as well. some areas of smoke at times around the north and east bay. the winds higher up bring smoke north to south into the bay area for the afternoon. right now, we have low clouds, misty skies around san francisco and the coast as we head through mid-morning today. what's left of the clouds inland, break up, giving us hazy sunshine, a cool and cloudy day on the coast except around santa cruz, you are likely to find sunshine there. then, those marine layers begin to deepen up, thicken and bring more drizzle into tomorrow morning, which sets the stage for cooling. highs today into the 90s inland. fairly hot as we get away from downtown san jose.
7:20 am
morgan hill and gilroy, mid-90s in the forecast. similar temperatures in livermore, concord and cant yough. low to mid-70s in livermore. peninsula temperatures mostly 70s. coastside, low 60s in san francisco and the north bay, high temperatures in the mid to upper 80s. so, things today, just a little bit cooler than the temperatures we had on saturday. notice, as we get toward monday now, especially inland, these temperatures start to drop off. the marine air, which is below 1,000 feet should start to climb. more marine air moving inland. the high pressure will be dropping down the coast, and should bring up the sea breeze and lead up to a drop in the valley temperatures. 10-15 degrees cooler. later in the week, high pressure trying to build back. maybe a slight ramp up in temperatures again thursday and friday. not nearly as hot as the high
7:21 am
temperatures yesterday. seven day forecast shows san francisco cooling, morning drizzle a part of the forecast through the middle part of the weekend. look at the valley temperatures today, 90s. starting tomorrow, we may see 90s off the board. refreshing tuesday, inland temperatures drop to the mid-80s, breezy at times, but comfortable weather. as the breezes pick up, better air quality and cooler temperatures for the middle part of the week and likely carry through to next weekend. back to you. >> really good with the cooldown. thanks. it is 7:21. still ahead on "today in the bay," what is art and what is technology? deep questions if the museum of modern art. our digital team posted this story online. you can watch it here first. next.

of former cia welcome back. as we discussed in this newscast that president trump, this week, revoked the security clearance of former cia director, john brennan and soon, thereafter, officials republicans and democrats wrote to the president calling the actions inappropriate and deeply regrettable. separately, retired admiral, william that supervised the raid that killed osama bin laden accused him of mccarthy era tactics. larry is here. what do we make of this commotion? >> here is the big picture, this
7:47 am
is really serious business. we have open warfare, open warfare between the intelligence community and the president of the united states. now, instead of these two critical components of american government working together, to protect the nation's interest at home and abroad, they are at each other's throats. they will affect the nation's ability to defend themselves because they have a wealth, just a wealth of institutional memory of flash points all around the world. they are often consulted by current government officials for their knowledge. these vital relationships are now threatened. >> i'm wondering if i missed something. how did we even get here? >> okay. look, for some time now, several national security officials criticized president trump for not condemning russia's
7:48 am
intrusive role in the 2016 elections and is continuing interference in the american political process to this day. former cia director, john brennan has been among them. wednesday, press secretary sarah huckabee sanders announced brennan's security credentials because of his erratic conduct and misbehavior. that left a lot of observers confused. later in the day, the president cleared up the confusion saying he revoked it because of his alleged role in the mueller investigation. now, as far as we know, there was no such involvement. the president also announced he intended to revoke security credentials of nine other current intelligence officials, all who he says participated unfairly and illegally in the early days of the mueller investigation. again, no evidence of that. >> what is the significance of this? >> well -- >> where do you start?
7:49 am
yeah, yeah. >> it's heavy stuff. it shouldn't surprise anyone, there's a split over this move. there's a split in everything. so many policies such as immigration, minorities, russia and, of course, the press. trump defenders argue he is protecting the nation from inaccurate statements from people abusing their security clearances and harming the nation's well being. the trump critics have another way of looking at it. they accuse the president of muzzling legitimate criticism from people who understand the gravity of policies with respect to russia. some see it as a not to veiled attempt to muzzle the mueller investigation itself. >> yeah, so, no crystal ball here, but what do you think could happen next? >> that remains to be seen, at a minimum. we have to go beyond that. brennan and others should there be others, could sue trump. they could sue trump for not
7:50 am
following procedures relevant to termination. there's a way you have to go about doing this. it would ask the court to determine, which is more important, the president's power outlined in article 2 of the constitution or the right to free speech. no doubt, such a suit would go all the way to the supreme court, but probably take a year, two, maybe three to get there, at a minimum. regardless, regardless, regardless, the president's own words confirm he will not accept criticism he views as unjustified or at odds with the policy. in a country where free speech is regarded as an anchor of liberty, that, in its will set alarms for trump critics. there's another point that should not be overlooked here. to the extent the president and intelligence community remain like this, the nation is more
7:51 am
vulnerable than it would be otherwise. tough times. >> yeah. there's so much we could still talk about. we will continue to follow this. as always, larry, thanks for being here. still ahead on "today in the bay," squeezing in the last bit of summer. the festival in one bay area community that's drawing big crowds. right now, seeing low clouds over oakland as the a's take on the astros early. temperatures in the 70s. coming up, we talk about the spare the air day and the changes ahead in the seven day forecast when we come back.
