attacks, airport security began to tighten. several weeks after that, president bush signed a new act which created the tsa. federal employees began screening passengers and their bags. the following month, a man on an american airlines flight from paris to miami tried to detonate explosives he had packed into his shoes. he was unsuccessful but the shoe bombing incident led to passengers beginning to remove their shoes while going through security. though this was not a mandate, until several years later. after a scare in 2006, large quantities of liquids were banned. the tsa decided to allow passengers to carry containers with three ounces or less in a single, clear, one-quart bag. shoe removal also became mandated. december, 2009, the so-called underwear bomber led to the installation of full-body scanners and since then, the number of scanners in u.s. airports has steadily increased. our 9/11 coverage continues

the morning. and more than just patches moving into san francisco right now. you got the cloudy skies there. 58 degrees. northwest wind at 10 miles per hour. air quality has been good. we have enjoyed really the blue skies, last couple of days. might begin to see that change, slightly, tomorrow. you notice, most of the bay area in the good range to moderate from the coast and bay in santa clara valley. one thing that might change in the north bay as we head into the afternoon, you might see haze dropping in from the north. again, isn't unhealthy air pt just most likely, skies won't be quite as blue as we have enjoyed the last couple days. so that, by monday and tuesday, probably more areas seeing moderate-air quality. nothing expected to be unhealthy, though, over the next five days. patchy low clouds, drizzle, and mist on the coast and peninsula for the morning. high temperatures will trend a bit warmer tomorrow. concord, antioch, livermore, morgan hill, places that will probably see some low-to-mid-90s tomorrow.
san francisco, upper 60s to low 70s into oakland. seven-day forecast toward the end of next week, we will have some cooler changes. for now, close but not quite to notice here on the northwest california coast. little bit of rain possible, early saturday. but that system is expected to kind of fall apart as it crosses the bay area. so, the long-range weather models. first chances for finding any rain in the forecast really limited north of mendocino county. both of the long-range models showing that, for now. hopefully, we will see more of that moving a bit farther south later on this month. look at the seven-day forecast shows san francisco trending a bit warmer, briefly, near-70 degrees. monday and tuesday, cooler with the wind picking up later in the week and there you see our numbers actually looking pretty good. in terms of fire danger, you are not seeing offshore winds and you are not seeing temperatures near 100 degrees so that while they are trending a bit warmer, no real signs of heat on the way. and for now, air quality looking pretty good around the bay area, as well. terry, back to you. >> sounds good, rob. thanks very much. let's check in with anthony flores. you know, sports fans tonight,

giants up 9-3. tommy la stella has what most wants. what's that, terry? he has power. look at that. off the scoreboard, a three-run homer capping a sixth-run inning. the giants hammer the cubs, 15-4. at the coliseum, the a's were cruising against the rangers until the top of the eighth inning. with two outs, jonah heim crushes a two run shot. the rangers scored five runs in the inning. >> they rallied to beat the a's, 8-6 the final. all right. it is after midnight on the east coast so that means it is officially game day for the 49ers. the red and gold kick off week one of the nfl season at detroit. the lions are a mystery. they have a new head coach and a new staff. they also have a new qb and marin county native jared goff who was traded from the rams to the lions in the offseason. as for the 9ers, they have high expectations. many football experts believe this team is built to make a
super bowl run. >> feels like it's been a long time coming. you know, preseason is great to get your feet wet but -- um -- you know there is like nothing regular season, especially having fans back. >> all you are hoping is you just prepare the best you can and everyone can't wait for kickoff because you want to shut off that mind and go. >> make sure you join nbc sports bay area for 49ers' pregame live tomorrow morning at 9:00 a.m., newly retired joe staly joins the team to get you ready for the big game. college football stanford on the road at the l.a. coliseum to take on usc. just before the half, tanner mcgee fires a strike to the back of the end zone to bryson tremaine. how about this? the cardinal upset the number 14 trojans, 14-28. on the pitch, the quakes in texas to take on fc dallas. san jose out fast six minutes into the match as scores on the penalty quick. the quakes took a lead into the locker room at halftime but dallas ties it in the second half. the match ends in a 1-1 draw. the quakes, though, unbeaten in
