those areas these days. >> reporter: the president is hopeful, criminal justice reform and international trade agreements. >> so those are a couple of areas where we actually can work with democrats and republicans to do something good for the country. >> reporter: though hardly a sure thing so the president, some believe like he has with gun control, immigration and cuban relations, may resort to more executive actions. >> they're unfortunate. the expansion of presidential power has been a bipartisan effort, so you can't totally blame president obama, but he has taken it to the next level. >> reporter: president george w. bush issued nearly 300 during his two-term office, but obama is not far behind. he is at 230 so far and hinting at even more. >> the president has circumvented the constitutional framework laid out. these things should be coming to the congress, do the people's house to be voted on. that hasn't happened and that is a frustration. >> reporter: of course, no

future, unless we do something about it, and we can't stick our heads in the sand and just say everything is rosy when it is not. >> the state of the union address begins tonight at 6:00. you can watch it here on news 4. let's switch gears and get a look at what is happening with our weather as we take a peek outside tonight. madison corney joins us with our first look at the forecast, and it will be a changing forecast here pretty soon, madison. >> that's right. we're already starting to see the clouds increasing and we're going to continue to see that until the storm hits early tomorrow morning. here is a look at current conditions in reno with mostly cloudy skies. no winds to speak of at this hour, but that will not remain the story on your wednesday. we are expecting some high winds with this storm. on satellite and radar, we are watching the next winter storm system hit the california coast and eventually will hit the sierra early tomorrow morning. here is a look at that winter effect 1:00 a.m. wednesday and remain in effect
