>> reporter: the secretaries of state and defense tried to quell a growing senate revolt today over the administration's tepid response to the murder of "washington post" journalist ndmal khashoggi. arabt's time to send saudi arabia a message. >> the response by the administration is not in- balance, and i think they know that. >> reporter: u.s. intelligence officials have determined that saudi security officials were most likely acting on orders from the crown prince, mohammed bin salman, when they killed and dismembered khashoggi inside the saudi consulate in turkey last month. but president trump, who views the crown prince as an ally, has been reluctant to accept the >>i.a.'s findings. >> they have nothing definitive, and the fact is, maybe he did, maybe he didn't. >> reporter: senators were furious when the c.i.a. director, gina haspel, was not included in their closed-door briefing. he we were told in this briefing aat it was the direction of the white house that she not attend.

5:39 pm
she still does face a final vote when the new house convenes on january 3. it was the biggest day on wall e reet in eight months. that may be because the chairman t powell, who has been under criticism, suggested the fed may hold the line on interest rates. with that, stocks took off. the dow climbed 619. the s&p, 61. it is lake-effect snow time in parts of the country. the town of perrysburg, new york got almost three feet of snow from this latest storm. in the west, meanwhile, california's bracing for heavy ciin and possible mudslides in areas scorched by wildfires. lonnie quinn chief meteorologist for us at wcbs in new york is tracking all of this. lonnie, let's talk first about california, what's happening? >> okay, the time frame we're concerned about is from right now all the way through friday morning. lluld pick up one to three
5:40 pm
inches of rain, but it's not the amount of rain, it's the rate it f uld fall at. .here is the potential for it to e me down to half an inch to an inch an hour. you see the specks of yellow out there, so it's not widespread. but for the woolsey fire, from is00 a.m. until 7:00 a.m., you have to be concerned. as far as the holy fire is concerned, we're a little more concerned with this area from 7:00 a.m. until 10:00 a.m. areaould come down from half an each to an inch an hour. elat could trigger mudslides. n,ok at what happened in montecito last year when an inch and a half fell. aain, there is nothing to hold the soil to the ground. everything has been burned away. and it flows right through everything, and mudslides could potentially be a big problem tomorrow morning, jeff. >> glor: yeah, we were there in montecito last year, it was an gful situation. er horrible. >> glor: lonnie, we have friends in florida and georgia busting out winter coats. what's happening down south now? >> they're setting records with the cold air, jeff. look at this. t ro beach was only 60° today. naples, 63°. tomorrow morning, really cold. we're talking below freezing in jacksonville. ee's the 20s° from georgia all the way to the carolinas, and hem telling you, new york city will be warmer than it will be in jacksonville, florida. e ff? >> glor: 24° in raleigh. wow. >> it's something else.
5:41 pm
>> glor: lonnie, thank you very much. a study out today says the pay gap between women and men is much wider than previously thought. the commonly used figure is for every dollar that a man earns, a woman earns 80 cents. this research says that women make 49 cents for every dollar earned by men. cbs news financial contributor mellody hobson is here to talk about all of this. she joins us from chicago tonight. mellody, how did 80 become 49? >> it's a more precise number. so more specifically, the old number looked at men and women who worked uninterrupted over the course of the year. the new number takes into consideration the fact that a woman is much more likely, over the course of the year, to step out, to have a child, raise a child, or take care of an aging or elderly parent, and that's how they get to 49 cents. >> glor: so what's the takeaway here for companies, melody? >> well, i talked to two h.r. executives of fortune 500 companies today, and they said,
5:42 pm
"one: they weren't surprised by the difference. secondly, they said it puts more pressure on companies to be vigilant about offering things like paid time off for primary and secondary caregivers, by having back-up childcare plans for people who work for them, wellness centers to keep employees healthy, as well as their families. to have re-entry points for women who do step out of the workforce, so that they can come back in without falling way backwards. and then lastly, to be vigilant about looking at their pay equity practices each and every year. >> glor: most importantly, mellody, what's the take away for women in the workforce? >> women are much more likely to retire with less money than a man, and as a result, when we think about saving, we have to be vigilant. the other thing to keep in mind is to advocate for ourselves when it comes to raises and promotions. on glor: all right, mellody, always good to have you on. thank you very much for your perspective tonight. we move now to this story, a chinese scientist who claimed this week that he created the

5:44 pm
criticized for using a technique on healthy human embryos for the first time, when its safety has not been established. the two girls will carry these genes, and any complications ioom them, for the rest of their lives, and could pass them down to their children and grandchildren as well. >> both of the embryos that eventually gave rise to the twins had severe problems. >> reporter: dr. kiran musunuru is a genetic expert at the university of minnesota that has l en his data. n> these are not embryos that, in good conscience, anyone could use for the purpose of having live-born children. >> reporter: jeff, what he has done really flies in the face of how ethical science is conducted. ethical science done inn, coab. d editinof genet in the future, the science isn't there yet. because the stakes are so high, it needs to be done with nvientists involved, the public, patient advocates, ethicists, a much bigger community.
5:45 pm
>> glor: seems noble trying to protect people. but so many questions in this particular case. >> reporter: exactly right. >> glor: tara, thank you. coming up next here on the "cbs evening news," a new n.f.l. controversy. a player accused of domestic violence is cut by one team and promptly picked up by another. you're headed down the highway when the guy in front slams on his brakes out of nowhere. you do, too, but not in time. hey, no big deal. you've got a good record and liberty mutual won't hold a grudge by raising your rates over one mistake. you hear that, karen? liberty mutual doesn't hold grudges. how mature of them! for drivers with accident forgiveness, liberty mutual won't raise their rates because of their first accident. liberty mutual insurance. liberty. liberty. liberty. liberty. ♪ has been a problem for me. mouth i'm also on a lot of medications that dry my mouth.
