9 newture cast a beautiful afternoon. temperatures into the 80s and a good amount sunshine returning. but clouds will push back in overnight tonight and a few sprinkles and showers possible early tomorrow morning and as we head into the afternoon the potential for few sprinkles and showers increases and notice it's spotty activity. don't cancel your outdoor plans because of this threat for showers. monday though that looks like a day where the threat for showers will be significant enough that make you might want to put -- maybe you might want to put the outdoor plans on hold. for the weekend days we are ingood shat. beautiful -- shape. beautiful today. on sunday a potential for a shower and that's not great news if you want a barbeque with mom but it will be good enough i don't think you should cancel the plan to have any outdoor cookouts. but monday a yellow alert thunderstorms are likely and scattered rain showers. look at temperatures, all the way up near 90 degrees on tuesday before the cold front sweeps through. and cooler and drier air is going to be refreshing as we head into the middle of the workweek. mike back to you.

and tests showed that it was ebola in his eye. so do you've runny nose? are you sneezing itching? for a specific reason this year allergy season is called a pollen tsunami. late arrival of spring is being blamed on high pollen count and you can run your finger across the dining room table or look at your car. everything is covered in that green dust. >> grass and pollen levels are at the highest so he far this year and could -- so far this year and could get worse. >> we are seeing both patients who had allergies previously but never have had such severe allergy symptoms as they are spoarnsing now. and we are -- experiencing now and we are seeing patient who is are developing allergies for the very first time. >> now aside from the over-the- counter meds or allergy shots one tip if you are suffering from pollen allergies when you get home take a shower and back your hair because that gets rid of the residual pollen. and as far as the word tsunami there's reason right. >> a because we are getting a
confluence of the tree pollen and grass pollen at the same time. not necessarily here in the immediate metro area, but as you head further to the north it's especially becoming common up there and it's because of that late end to the winter season. so tree pollen is the first thing to happen and then grass pollen that just starts to erup when the sun angle is at the right spot for the grass to start to grow. so what we have this year is a delayed start to the tree pollen season and the typical start of the grass pollen season. so they are coming together at sam time. tree pollen is high right now. but it's way, way down from its peak which was on may 1st so right now actually we have about a 10th of the amount of tree pollen grains in our air that we did at the very peak of the season. just in general the season has been typically bad for us here in dc. we live in a very pollinated area and the worst seasons in recent memory and we are
talking last 20 years in 2009 and 2010 where it was madness. >> so get your over the counter stuff ready. >> get it ready. still ahead, we will take mental illness out of shadows and on to the stage. we want to introduce you to someone taking the effort in front of people and telling her story as well. and later, nick will serve up some safery sweet dishes. don't want to miss this. >> looks like heaven. >> and a good saturday morning to you. i am larry miller. want to let you know for those heading down for the susan g. komen race for the cure metro is open in fact it opened at 5 this morning. the red silver and green lines will be operating on regular intervals but the orange blue and yellow lines will be operating every 18 minutes. we suggest you take public transportation because driving down there is going to be busy. we will so you back here monday morning

surae. not just the susan g komen race for the cure but that's one the bigger one. it's going to be a great day to get outside similar to yesterday and thursday and then the pattern breaks tomorrow. >> when we first started to show the weather cameras we saw haze over the city and you say. >> it's going to burn off by 10 a.m. and we are done with that and we will see the sunshine really returning this afternoon. let's start off with a look outside like mike said it does look misty out there. and when mike and i were on the weather terrace about 10 minutes ago, we felt a couple of the toonie drops of mist. but that's because of a lot of low level moisture in the atmosphere. that's the kind of stuff that once the temperature starts to warm up, it quickly evaporates. so that's what we are going see happening as we head into the afternoon. 10:00 clouds lingering. 71 degrees but mostly sunny afternoon. and it will be 78 degrees by one. and 82 degrees at 4 and notice the winds out of the south and southeast at 10 miles per hour. we have no weather issues this

consistent throughout the area. son satellite and radar there's nothing going on either as far as any precipitation. so that little bit of mist don't think that's an indication that it's going to rain later today. it's not going to rain today. it's on sunday that we have a little chance of some rain in the forecast. it is because of ana so as it makes its way closer to us, a dry day today but then that cloud cover starts to overspread as we head into sunday morning. by sunday afternoon, the chance for showers increases but ana is well to the south. and as we head into the overnight hours sunday night into monday morning, ana will start to get closer but it also is going to be interacting with the land mass and so what tropical systems need is warm water and lots of it. when it starts to make its way inland it's going to lose that source of energy and that means the wind speeds are going to go down. so this won't be a big concern for the shoreline as far asbeach erosion but it will be close enough to give us showers and possibly even a rumble of thunder and at the same time a cold front is heading our way from the west. so you can see all the spotty
showers isolated thunderstorms developing on monday. but not this weekend. nice and warm 84 degrees today. and a lot of sunshine in the afternoon. then on sunday, we will increase the cloud cover and there is a potential for a shower but don't cancel your outdoor plans we will be dry enough you can spend plenty of time outside and you can check the wusa9 radar app before heading out and make sure there isn't a shower heading are way. but monday probably have to cancel outdoor plans if you had them because there's good chance for thunderstorms and a high of 86 degrees. and the first alert 7-day forecast warmest day is tuesday and we will get all the way up to 88 before the cold front swings on through and that's going to bring us cooler and drier air this time of year that's good news. and i think that you will like this forecast for wednesday. cool and breezy with high of 76. and we will stay in the 70s for the rest of the workweek. mike back to you. >> thanks. walmart is coming under fire for where it is sourcing the bottled water that it sells. according to own labeling atwalmart water comes from
sacramento's water supply. the problem is california is currently experiencing a historic drought. >> certainly we have bad taste in everybody's mouth when you can't fill up a swimming pool of you're bidding -- building a new home in west sacramento and can't water your lawn if you are living in the region. and to find out that they are making a huge profit off this it's just not right. >> now walmart released a statement saying they will continue to work with suppliers who act responsibly and all while meeting the customers needs. no word if the company is going to chang where they get the bottled watter. as we hit the 08 degree mark more and more -- 80 degree mark maybe you are thinking of a place to cool off. in today's consumer alert lesli foster shows us how to save cash. >> reporter: you can cut your summer travel costs with a few simple steps. airfare watchdog.com says avoid peak travel times. airfare and hotel rates typically go down after august
