clouds of smoke and ash up to six miles in the sky. now, these clouds can unleash fire tornadoes and generate their own lightning. another major fire is burning near paradise, california, the site of the deadliest fire in u.s. history. meanwhile, we're tracking potentially dangerous weather across the country. let's get the forecast from cbs' lonnie quinn. good evening, lonnie. >> reporter: good evening, norah. well, look, anywhere from the mid atlantic to new england it has been hot today, we're talking it feeling like the triple digits from providence to baltimore is just as hot. baltimore about 3:00 tomorrow will feel 106 degrees. but shortly after a strong line of storms, making it feel 30 degrees cooler in a matter of hours, but will dump maybe four inches of rain in some spots for the northeast or the mid atlantic. and if you look out west the story all summer long has been the heat. well, another heat dome is building, stays in place until about wednesday of next week.
and you consider the fact that the west right now, it's estimated they're in their worst 20-years drought that they've had in 1,200 years, looking. with that dry air in place and now big-time triple-digit temperatures, no wonder there are wildfires. and if it continues through the weekend, we could see more fires sparking up. that's the very latest, norah, back to you. >> o'donnell: all right, lonnie quinn, thank you so much. well, tonight, a new debate ises raging over the us raging over the use of artificial intelligence in a film on the life of celebrity chef anthony bourdain who died by suicide in 2018. cbs' jim axelrod takes a look. >> reporter: the goal of the new documentary about anthony bourdain was straightforward. >> here's a little preemptive truth telling-- >> reporter: as the director morgan neville told me. >> i want people to be able to make some sense out of his death. >> reporter: but it turns out how it was made, was not. >> you are successful, and i am successful. i'm wondering, are you happy? >> reporter: that sound byte is
something bourdain wrote but never actually said. listen again. >> you are successful, and i am successful. >> reporter: the voice is generated by a computer, the use of artificial intelligence neville called a modern storytelling technique but did not disclose to the viewers. >> to put a voice to something that someone never said, only wrote is a really bad idea. i think to do that and then not disclose that you've done it is a colossal bad idea. >> reporter: syracuse university professor robert thompson says using a.i. like this only adds fuel to the fake news fire. >> it makes it harder, i think, to do your reporting without people saying who knows if that person really said that, who knows if that really happened. >> reporter: neville claims the a.i. voice was used with the blessing of bourdain's estate and literary agent, though bourdain's ex-wife tweeted, "i certainly was not the one who said tony would be okay with that."
the film begins today but with a computer shadow hanging over it, it's all too real. jim axelrod, cbs news. >> o'donnell: there is much more news ahead on tonight's "cbs evening news." 25 years after a horrific plane crash, what to do about the reconstructed jet. a teenager who survived the florida condo collapse personally thanks his rescuers. and we've got striking new images of the titanic in its watery grave. watery grave. what is even in this? clinically-studied plant based ingredients passion flower, valerian root, and hops. new zzzquil pure zzzs restorative herbal sleep.
