8:04 am
in flames. the pilot was killed. here is a look at skyfox. investigators say the pilot reported control problems shortly after takeoff from the livermore airport. that person was the only person on board that we know of. neighbors noticed a weird sound coming from the plane moments before it crashed. >> there are witnesses who did report the airplane going down at a high rate of speed and there was a considerable impact and subsequent fire. we are talking to those people and i'm sure the federal authorities will be talking to them as well. >> somebody crashed here nine months ago to the left of where this accident happened in this field. >> reporter: investigators say that plane experienced mechanical issues as well. now, it typically take months for the ntsb to come up with a problem cause for -- probable cause for accidents so it could be some time before we figure
8:05 am
out what happened here in this field. live in livermore, tara moriarty, back now. >> it looks like a large area. thank you. 8:04. now to breaking news we've been following for about an hour. >> we've been following this for just over an hour. united airlines says a computer problem forced the faa to ground all of united's flights nationwide for a brief time this morning. want to show you a live picture from san francisco international airport. an official there says the computer glitch affected united flight dispatch system starting at 6:00 a.m. pacific time. one passenger is telling us his flight was delayed at least an hour but we're told the problem is resolved and united flights are now taking off from snowe. the head of the transportation security administration has been reassigned. this after a damaging report showed the screeners failed to detect fake bombs and banned weapons 95 where is of the time

8:07 am
to understand but it won't stop them from flying. >> i don't think you can have perfect security without it coming at a huge cost. i think we just take a risk. i think the government is working a lot of other ways to stop terror and i think that the tsa is one aspect of that. >> reporter: now, in response to this report, homeland security secretary jay johnson has ordered the tsa to revise airport security procedures, retrain officers and retest security equipment at airports nationwide. now, last year about $7 billion was uth abouted for the tsa. lawmakers in washington, d.c. will be -- was budgeted for law if. lawmakers in washington, d.c. will be studying this. most terror plots are foiled by good intelligence as opposed to

8:19 am
and may linger in the weekend. 50s on the temps of we did have upper 40s for santa rosa. i don't think livermore got below 6 or or 61 and san jose around 59, 60 all morning long. temperature change from 4 hours ago is not that extreme. at one time it was, 7, 8 degrees. now everyone is leveled off in the 8:00 hour. not much of a difference, west, west, west at 12. we get the onshore breeze. that's in plate. water temps have -- that's in place. water temps have warmed up. 57, 59 bodega bay north cold. that's something to watch. monterey is already 59. water temp is 59. system is moving out. we get two days of weak high pressure and then the next system drops in and then we'll have to keep an eye on it for maybe moisture from what will probably be hurricane blanca moving up towards baja. as it moves north, it falls apart. some of that moisture -- the low looks like it will end up
8:20 am
around l.a. or santa barbara. that's it right there coming in. we'll get drizzle on thursday. it goes south. here comes the moisture up towards southern california. the sierra will be dealing with thunderstorms. aim for northern california. it looks close for us. >> i think starting friday. it will be a close call here. i think especially on sunday. there will be plenty going on up in the mountains. be advised. there will be a lot of rain down the four corners. but a lot of has to come together. but there are already signs that that might happen. low clouds, fog, then sunny and warm here. afternoon breeze. it's a westerly breeze. temperatures near normal average to slightly above. 60s, 70s and low 80s. no sign of any big warmup. that's for sure. 60s, 70s, coast and bay and then upper 70s, low 80s inland. the temperatures are near where they should be. a little bit above for coast and bay. they should be 65 for san francisco. we'll go 68. 70s on the peninsula, including redwood city. low clouds back on wednesday

8:25 am
even though she has a lot of money and celebrity status, she's still one of us. if she can get people to under what it means to be transgender and it isn't something you do do one day, decide to be transgender, i think it's very, very helpful. >> caitlyn jenner set a new twitter record. she gained more than 1 million followers in four hours and four minutes. president obama held the previous record. at last check, caitlyn jenner now has more than 2 million followers. tracy morgan has broken his silence about a near death experience that cost him a close friend. >> when i got home, it really hit me and every day i would watch the accident on youtube and one day i came across this funeral on youtube and i just

8:31 am
very persistent. today it will burn off sooner. there's still plenty to go around. blue skies. a few high clouds. a lot of low clouds. had some fog this morning, too. if you probably noticed it feels mild. peter inn sent me this. he said the air has been more soupy. what's the cause. well, there is a couple of reasons. the water temps have warmed up. 57 to 59 degrees. we have this low coming in which meant into the north. we get a south wind ahead of that. that definitely causes some williamer conditions. these are -- it's june. the systems don't have a lot of cold air with it. they are coming in over a mild source. so the combination of those three gave us more humidity in the mix. a lot of low clouds in place. that's yesterday's system. there it goes. there it goes and it lifts out of the picture. 50s and 60s already. some locations didn't go below 60. livermore, san jose. west wind, west wind, yesterday
8:32 am
was south, south, southeast. so today, even with a little bit of sun. probably be kieler. a lot of cloud cover over us. highs today, 60s, 70s and a few low 80s. sal? i know you have the usual stuff. anything new? no. just the usual slowdowns and some areas are getting better. some areas are getting worse. but for the most part, a general better commute than yesterday. as you come up on the bay bridge toll plaza, we have improvement here, especially if you are driving in on 880 approach. that would be the best approach, the one i would use getting over to the toll plaza. then you can get onto the bridge with less delay than other lanes. also looking at 880, we see slow traffic coming in from san leandro. it stays that way. we had an earlier accident northbound 880 at fifth.
8:33 am
