yesterday thankfully. by 9 a.m. it's going to start to break up a little bit and we will see some peaks of sunshine. 73 degrees. more sunshine around noon with a temperature of 79. a threat for a few pop-up sprinkles and showers developing as we head into the afternoon. so because of that humidity that we have in place right now and the warm temperatures will allow what we call convection to happen in the atmosphere. you know when you get those bubbling popcorn looking cumulus clouds and they drop a few raindrops? that's the scenario we will have this afternoon. very spotty shower activity out there. right now 67 in fairfax and arlington. 65 germantown. temperatures between 65 and 70 degrees throughout much of the metro area. on 9 futurecast here comes the remnants of tropical storm ana. by the time it arrives in the metro area we will be talking about remnants. we won't be talking about a full fledged tropical storm any more. showers developing this afternoon. 3 p.m. a light sprinkling of showers on the i-95 corridor.
that breaks up when the sun goes down. monday morning lots of clouds if place, but it should be mosley dry. then some sprinkles develop around noon. more sprinkles and showers, maybe even some thunderstorms as a cold front approaches late on monday. the cold front will actually sweep through on tuesday. so monday is a yellow alert day with a threat for a shower or a thunderstorm. but today still fairly pleasant. it will be a little bit muggy and we do have that potential for a quick shower, as i mention the before. a high of 84 degrees. monday we will get up to 86 with that potential for showers and storms especially prevalent from about noon onward. then on tuesday after the cold front sweeps through we will return to the sunshine. it's going to be a very warm and breezy afternoon with a high of 88 degrees. and in the first alert seven- day forecast behind that frontal system refreshing air moves in. temperatures return to the 70s and we will have a good amount of sunshine on wednesday and thursday as well. mike, back to you.

evidence of the country advancing their military capabilities. south korea officials says the north fired three anti-ship cr uise missles into the sea off east coast. siberia has marked the end of the ebola crisis. it's the 42nd day since liberia's last case. the mother of a autistic girl who was kicked off a plane wants to sue an airline. >> they are flying to portland, oregon. her daughter, who has autism, appeared to get upset on the plane and the pilot made an emergency landing in salt lake city. once on the ground the family was kicked off the plane. >> the captain never came back and said is everything okay or even met her. never. he landed a plane. >> well, the passengers on the

around the washington metro. he has had his fair share of good and difficult times, but lately things haven't been so good. how have things been? >> very, very slow. >> reporter: car services like uber and lyft have cut into revenue by as much as 50 perez. he has had to get creative. >> i have to work almost every day. >> reporter: even with growing competition, the chairman of the commission says a reputation of poor service is another obstacle hurting drivers. >> a few complaints of folks refusing to haul because a person was blind, they have a service dog. we have some individuals that refused to haul because of the person's race, because of the person's gender, because of where the person is going to. >> sometimes we are scared for our lives. somebody might pull a gun or rob you or something like that. fortunately, that hasn't happened to me yet. >> reporter: they are working out the details of a cultural sensitivity program to make sure every customer who wants a ride
gets one regardless of his or her race, sexual orientation, handicap or any other distinguishable character. the program would mirror a similar training every d.c. employees go through every year. the goal is to pilot the program by the summer with a full rollout in the fall. for drivers like arthur williams, if the program helps make money and ensures his safety, he is all for it. >> robif somebody want to rob you, they can. >> once the program is fully implemented only new drivers would be required to go through the program. after that they are going to look at getting the veteran drivers up to speed. >> sounds like a good idea. uber, meanwhile, has submitted a $3 billion bid for here. the main competitor to google maps. the move comes as the company looks to get into the logistics business. uber, by the way, is competing with another bid from german

first alert weather time. it is a very important day. mother's day of course. plenty of people have brunch plans. maybe some of them outside. kind of hard to think about outside brunch plans when you see that haze. >> yeah, it is kind of muggy out there and it's going to continue to feel humid today just like it did yesterday. as we head into the afternoon, unlike yesterday we have the potential for some showers starting to develop. so let's get it started right
now with a look at that michael and son weather cam. you can see that haze mike was referring to. right now temperatures are right around 70 degrees in the immediate metro area. we have 60s for you outside of the beltway. but it will be 73 degrees by 9:00 with a partly cloudy sky. so we are going to start to break up that low cloud cover as we head towards the 9 a.m. hour. by noon a good amount of sunshine, but the bad news with that is that it helps to get enough instability in the atmosphere to fire up a few showers. i don't think we really have much of a chance for a thunderstorm today, but there is the potential for a quick but possibly heavy shower 5 p.m. 83 threes with a chance for a shower in the beltway most prevalent between 3 and 6:00. right now 69 inle alexandria. 67 in damascus and laurel. temperatures are between 65 and 70 throughout much of the beltway. 72 in downtown washington. the two systems we are
watching. tropical storm ana is making her way, starting to make more of a northward turn. then also this storm system, the same one that brought the severe weather to the plains states will start it to make its approach. on 9 futurecast do those two come together to bring enhanced chances for rain? on 9 futurecast it doesn't look like that's going to happen. this afternoon just a couple of so thety showers developing right along the i-95 corridor and points west. the best potential for those showers to develop this afternoon will be between 95 and 81. clouds overnight tonight. that of course is going to keep things on the muggier side. a few sprinkles and showers developing again by noon on monday. i think 9 futurecast is underdoing the threat on monday. so monday is a yellow alert day. today just a green alert. we have that potential for a sprinkle or shower. as i mentioned before, mainly in the mid-afternoon hours to around dinnertime. as the sun goes down we will
lose that instability. today's high 84 degrees. on monday potential for showers and possibly a thunderstorm at any point during the day. the best potential for that between noon and 8 p.m. on monday. a high of 86 degrees. tuesday we are back to the green alert. we might have a early thunderstorm. we will get close to 90 degrees on tuesday before the cooler drier air moves in. in the first alert seven-day forecast a high of 76 degrees on wednesday. only 74 on thursday with lots of sunshine. mike, back to you. >> thanks. coming up, a vaccine to battle ebola. plus, learning more about chronic fatigue. good morning. the ebola virus spread rapidly across africa and took months to contain it. this week the fda is taking steps to make sure that and similar epidemics do not happen here. on tuesday, may 12, an fda committee will discuss the development and future licensing

"blackfish" was released seaworld is spending $10 million on a media blitz. seaworld is also releasing video of its backstage work as a zoo logical institution like this rescue of 19 manatees from a city drain pipe. >> that is our passion. that's our soul. >> reporter: 30 days in the campaign business is slowly improving, but seaworld's critics are not moved. >> it's incredibly frustrating. >> reporter: communications executive jill kermis. >> the people that work here 24/7 on call to rescue animals. they are animal advocates. >> reporter: new ceo author of love works about compassion in the workplace told investors this week this is the very first pitch in a very long story. >> and by the way, a cut in ticket prices seems to be working. park attendance up 5.6% and revenue up 1%. coming up at 8 a.m.

to wilmington, north carolina. maximum sustained of 40 miles per hour is slowly making its way up the east coast. thanks for joining us this mother's day. we are glad you are with us. i am mike hydeck. >> i am meitiv erica grow. well have more on ana in a moment. it's mother's day. it's a great day to head out doors and spend time with mom. today will be similar than yesterday to start. then heading into the afternoon we might have to dodge a few raindrops. you will see why in just a minute. let's look at the michael and son weather cam at a foggy, mist start. the good news is the fog is not going to hang on as long as it did yesterday. remember it was even a little bit mist at times? breaks in the clouds at 10:00 a.m. and a temperature of 75 degrees. 81 degrees by 7:00 or by 1:00, i should say, 81 degrees. winds remain out of the south and southeast at about 5 to 10 miles per hour throughout the day. our best potential for showers
will be from 3 to 7 p.m. so maybe a sprinkle or shower at four. maybe a sprinkle or shower at seven. if you start to feel raindrops, they will be very short lived. we are going to see a little bit of sunshine in the afternoon leading to that convective instability. that's it. that's pretty much what we're looking at this afternoon. right now 70 degrees in leesburg, fredricks and gaithersburg. here is that look at tropical storm ana. it's a minimal tropical storm now. the very latest 8 a.m. advisory has the winds reduced to 40 miles per hour. can you see it's the moving right now out of the north-northwest at 5 miles per hour. by the time we get to monday afternoon it will be grazing the immediate metro area. it looks like the winds that are tropical storm strength will completely miss the metro area. there is only a 10% chance that we will see any tropical storm force winds out of this system. so we'll continue to track that
for you and keep a very close eye on tropical storm ana and what she could do for our area coming up in the first alert seven-day forecast. mike, back to you. of course, she is soaking the carolinas right now in that slow march up the coast. it's going to make an impact over the next few days. brian reports from north carolina with the latest. >> reporter: this is rifle beach just as tropical storm ana is making landfall on the carolina coast a little ways south of here. we are not seeing of rain at the moment. but we have seen bands of rain come through the region throughout the morning. the beach is empty and the surf is rough, but it's not terribly dramatic. rip currents, of course, will be a problem as they have been all weekend long. this area is expecting two to three inches of rainfall from this storm which could cause some minor to moderate flooding:local officials are not expecting a widespread flooding event. they do say flooding could be
heavy in localized areas. and with wind gusts expected at 40 to 50 miles an hour around here we could see some minor property damage, tree limbs down, and some possible power outages. isolated power outages. but for the moment it's fairly quiet here at wrightsville beach. we are expecting a rainy windy mother's day on the coast. brian mims for cbs news a. and super typhoon newell roared over the philippines this morning. it prompted evacuations and flooding. authorities had to relocate more than 1,200 residents in the vulnerable areas. they moved them to evacuation centers ahead of that typhoon arriving. a wild weekend as severe weather hits parts of the southwest and great plains. several tornados have been

welcome back. happy mother's day. it is 8:13 if you are just waking up or cooking breakfast for mom. if you are headed out this afternoon a chance of a shower, right? >> that's right. yeah. we will see those breaks of sunshine leading to the potential for showers. does that make sense? yeah. it's because the heat we get from the sunshine allows bubbly cumulus clouds that develop. then we put down a couple quick sprinkles. that's the kind of shower activity we are expecting this afternoon. nothing really big. nothing really heavy. let's get things started with look at michael and son weather cam. no mystery here as to where that moisture is coming from, right? you can see the heavy amount of
mist that's in the atmosphere right now. you can't even see the top of the washington monument. it's 73 degrees at 9 a.m. with that sunshine starting to peek through the cloud cover, but it's not until we get closer to noon that we will really start to see that sun returning. so very similar to what we had yesterday. remember that it wasn't until about noon when we really saw that sunshine burst through at least in the beltway. but we will be at 79 degrees at that point. 83 at five. and with that sunshine we will start to get a little bit more of a concentration of moisture. the clouds dumping down just a quick sprinkle or shower between 3 and 6 in the afternoon. right now it's 68 in fairfax. 67 in waldorf. nothing going on. even though you step outside you might feel a little bit of mist. it's nothing that the radar will return on. we are watching two systems. tropical storm ana and we are also watching an approaching storm system the same one that brought that severe weather to
the plains states and on 9 futurecast you will see when they start to make their approach. both of these storms approaching the metro area at the same time. so in the mid-afternoon hours a light smattering of showers showing up on 9 futurecast along the i-95 corridor primarily actually west of i-95 close to the blueridge. that's the best potential for showers. places like louding county, fairfax and prince william. more showers pushing towards us monday morning. it's in the afternoon as ana starts to push just to the east of us and that cold front approaches at the same time. i think 9 futurecast underdoing our threat for showers and thunderstorms on monday. the cold front will move through on tuesday and that will bring us drier air. it's going to remain warm for the next three days. today our high is 84 degrees with that chance for for a shower in the afternoon. monday is a yellow alert. we could have showers and thunderstorms. that, of course, could affect
your outdoor sports practices and any commute times. on tuesday maybe an early shower or thunderstorm but then it turns breezy as the front pulls away. a high of 88 degrees. in the first alert seven-day forecast, after that front moves out we return to cooler, drier, refreshing air. high temperatures in the mid 70s on wednesday and thursday with a good amount of sunshine. mike, back to you. >> thank you, erica. of course, it's mother's day. if you foregot to get a gift, don't worry. there is time to grab some flowers for mom. this year we are spending more on mom than ever before. surae chin is live at karen's florists. >> reporter: happy mother's day to your family. thank you so much. well, yes, we are talking about mother's day and when we last left off we were talking about how not to be scammed. well, the president of karen's florist here in vienna, not only do you want moms to get the flowers that you actually ordered but you were a victim
of those scams? >> what's happening is people are going online and they are putting us in their search engine and they are actually not always coming to our site. there are advertisements coming up that are misleading and deceptive to our customers. to show you an example of this -- i am so sorry. to show you an example of this you have it where things are coming up and it's not us. it's saying vienna, virginia. it's giving you an offer. when they click on that, they are going through and ordering from a store that's not us. it's actually a call center with phones and computers and things like that. and not the quality not the product. not our award-winning designers. >> . >> reporter: the key is to make sure what is your address to confirm that is actually the store that you are calling? >> absolutely. don't just say are you the florist located on maple avenue because you might get an answer that says yes we can handle that for you. >> reporter: let's talk about something more beautiful and
happy and fun. we have got brian swan, the create i have director and the know it all of flowers. talk to us. >> thanks. so we are just creating a nice little mother's day arrangement here for mom. mother's day arrangements tend to be gardeny and lots of pumps and pinks and raspberry color tones. we put in some bright spring greens in order to get -- you know, so it looks like springtime. >> reporter: what has been popular this season?
