involved a deadly crash for the second time. now there's questions of similarities of the disasters it is a high priority because this is currently one of the best selling planes in the world. nbc's tom costello rreports. >> reporter: theep urgent questn facing investigators and airline safety teams, are there similarities of the ethiopian airlines crash and the crash of a lion air crash last year? both planes went down just after takeoff. the crews struggled to maintain control. the ethiopian plane transmitting erratic vertical speed readings. lion air went down in the java sea 2 minutes into flight. a preliminary investigation found the on board sensors may have fed bad data indicating the plane was going to stall. the computers then mistakenly pushed the nose of the plane down to pick up speed.
the pilots struggled to pull the nose up not realizing they were fighting a new automated anti-stall system that boeing never told pilots about but boeing says the pilots should have known how to disengage the system. >> so what i do immediately turn over the switches and cut the motor out. and as you can see it stopped the trim. >> reporter: now investigators in africa will examine the plane's black boxes for any sign the ethiopian crew faced the same issues. if so, more countries including the u.s. could ground the plane. today 354 737 maxes are flying around the world with more on the way. in north america, flown by american, southwest, united and air canada. while no problems in the u.s., many airlines and pilots say they didn't know about the anti-stall system until the
indonesian crash. >> tom costello reporting there. the faa issued an emergency order last fall for the airlines to ensure that their pilots are trained properly on how to disengage that anti-stall. if it kicks in. but to be clear, there is no known cause of this crash that could have been an engineno problem, electrical or hydraulic failure and an explosion or fire it is not known. and right now, taking a look at the big board. up 159 points coming even as boeing is down but sales from facebook as well as other tech companies are raising the dow right now this morning. all right. you know it was coming down in the south bay yesterday. a lot of hail. you might have taken a photo or video of the hail that hit the bay area yesterday. check out that guy right there. he got his snowboard out and rode it on down the hill over in
san jose. now, the storm itself may have tan people by surprise with pleasant weekend weather. but our meteorologist team, they were certainly checking it out. that's now dry? >> that system moved out and it was amazing. >> it was to see. >> all of that hail that made it look like it snowed outside. >> so quickly. >> yeah. it happened fast. it was out of here fast, too. this is a look at the storm that rolled through in that area of low pressure that was just off the coast producing the lightning and once again also bringing in some very heavy rain and some hail and now it is since moved on so we are seeing some sunshine right now. live look outside in dublin after a foggy start to the day. well now we have sunshine and then going into the afternoon we are also going do see the sunshine continuing in san francisco. with some chilly temperatures as we continue on the rest of the day. so looking in san jose, heading over to sunnyvale for a temperature trend that will be

august 2020. well, president trump will once again ask congress for money for his wall. >> scott mcgrew joins us now. the last time he did it led to the closure of the government. >> the government will stay open. the request for the wall is part of the president's to posed budget. they ask for things they know they won't get. he didn't get the money he wanted for the wall when republicans controlled both houses, remember. it is unlikely to get it now. one thing overshadowed by the wall is the president is asking for paid family leave. many americans under the family medical leave act and president trump said pay them. california already requires this on a state level. meanwhile, the president is trying to explain why he called tim cook of apple tim apple. axios said he told republican fund-raisers in a private meeting he never misstated the apple ceo's name but there's video of it. >> in the meeting of ceos at the

taking a live look outside in sunol and all of that sunshine, a welcomed change. also in heeldsburg as we dry out with the rounds of rain we had and maybe heading out to ocean beach but it is cool and windy out there. so not the best beach weather with the temperature now only 51 degrees. it is 55 in palo alto. and in livermore, it is 50 degrees. but we will be warming up as we go throughout the rest of the day and as we take a look at the temperature trend, we go into the mid-60s. by the middle of the day. so we are going to continue to warm up quickly over the next several hours. and our high temperature's reaching 63 in concord. up to 61 in napa. santa rosa at 62 and then we'll see another system moving in that will bring us more clouds for tomorrow. and it is bringing some rain just starting to edge its way into washington state but we are
going to see this as it gets closer to the bay area fizzling out in terms of rain and the system itself is weakening, as well. we are going to keep a slight chance of rain in the forecast for farther to the north. and then we'll see an increase in cloud coffer. we may also see some of that rain near the coast but overall looks like a fairly dry day. more clouds and then the winds picking up as the system drops in and moves out. we'll go back to the clear skies by wednesday. then looking at our reservoirs. we have had a lot of rain this season. and then our reservoirs are -- some spots over capacity and over the historical average as we take a look at far northern california, full some lake at 100% and then the san luis at 114% of the historical average and then southern california also seeing them over where we
normally see and then the sierra snow pack, we are at 161%. it still looks pretty great after light snow over the weekend. now we are going to dry out once again. so our weather looking very nice. much more ideal weather for getting outside. our temperatures will be warming up, as well. inland areas, expect highs near 70 degrees for the weekend. i am sure looking forward to that. marcus and laura? >> i think we all are. >> absolutely. coming up for you, the future of sportses right in our backyard. a huge tournament over the weekend that had thousands watching on air and online. first happening now, you will soon get to access your risk for developing type 2 di diabetes. 23 and me is including a genetic risk for diabetes.
