high of the day. a little bit of cloud cover from time to time, pretty much possible at any time period during the day today, however rain chance stays near zero during the afternoon, and evening hours and then that will come up for later tonight we'll talk about in more detail coming up. first up for some showers will be in the mountains, that is where the shower chance even during the late afternoon or early evening will run around 30%. ashe, watauga, avery counties temperatures in the upper 40s for highs and the rest of us could see some of those get in here later tonight. we'll talk about that as well as warmer weather on the way for the rest of the weekend and through much of next week, too, all of those details part of your seven day first alert forecast. kristen. >> kristen: there is much more to come this morning. state officials in north carolina taking action to combat the zika virus, what they are doing to prevent the spread of the infection. we're always on your side,
this isn't exactly the one, this i think ashley got from sally beauty, so you can get it other places. but it is so funny to look at if you can take the close-up view. >> kristen: a dryer attachment. >> lyndsay: alalien head. supposed to kind of mimic the dryer at the salon that goes over your head, which is not used for every day blow drying, used more for when you color your hair or have a special treatment or that sort of thing. >> kristen: we'll show your video later? >> lyndsay: yes, i got to be the guinea pig for this and we already did it, obviously, we won't do it live, sorry, but the video is probably just as entertaining.
7:40, 7:45 this morning. ashley, how much was this? 14.99. >> lyndsay: on group on, i'm pretty sure originally it was something crazy like 50 or 60 on group on sale for 14.99. >> kristen: don't spend more than 14.99. >> lyndsay: please do not. >> kristen: we'll look forward to that. i can't wait to see you in this thing. >> lyndsay: thanks,. >> kristen: go ahead, do the forecast. that girl kind of looks like you a little bit. >> lyndsay: maybe. maybe not. good morning, it is 39 outside the metro school in charlotte from our scott clark nissan honda weather net camera, a little bit of cloud cover that moves in toward the end of the time lapse, you can see the cloud cover move in. we will have cloudy areas around not only first thing this
the afternoon from time to time, there could be cloudy spots out there. if you look on the satellite you can see the cloud cover right over the charlotte area, although it looks like it is drifting east, the sun-up will be about a couple minutes before 7:00, i think around quarter of 7:00 is the sunrise, once that sun does come up there may be cloudy areas. a very weak front upstream and this is moving quickly, because i drew this front on here at 5:00 and already you can see how far the moisture has made it out ahead of it. i'll have to update my surface map. there is not a lot of moisture associated with this. small showers getting in western parts of kentucky. this is going to race across the carolinas and the mid-atlantic by later tonight and not a lot of moisture to this by any stretch, but what is available with it may be able to squeeze out a couple of showers, highest chance of that in the mountains but for the rest of us can't be
this is 4:00, late afternoon, early evening for those of you in the mountains you can maybe pick up a late day shower and then for the rest of us kind of spills over by between 10:00 and midnight, say, so we're talking later tone, definitely after the day time hours and after the sun has gone down, 11:00 p.m. on futurecast. not a lot of moisture available, that is why the coverage will be 20% for some of us outside the mountains to maybe pick up a few sprinkles or rain drops later tonight. keep it in the back of your mind if you will be out for saturday night that will be an outside possibility but still won't be heavy enough to need an umbrella anyway. either way those of you that get wet weather tonight, it is gone by daybreak sunday. remainder will be mostly clear for us, and have less clouds tomorrow than we will today. a nice stretch ahead. just to drive home the point we're not expecting much at all
totals are only printing out a couple hundreds, outside the mountains, barely enough to get the ground wet or get the windshield wipers going with the showers rolling through tonight. after that, we have a nice stretch ahead, low 60s sunday, mid 60s monday, then check it out in next week, we hit 70 on tuesday, and then we go upwards from there, several days ahead that will be in the 70s all the way through next friday, it does look mainly dry, too, at least through the balance of the work week, friday night and into next saturday, that will be one week from now is our next chance to possibly pick up more widespread rain, so overall, this first full week of march, i don't think many complaints everyone will be loving the warmth next week. myself included. >> kristen: i can't wait. >> lyndsay: me either. >> kristen: north carolina is hiring two medical experts to monitor mosquitoes that can carry the zika virus and consult how to control them. the state is asking you to pay

this is the internet you know, news, social media, shopping, easy to access, easy to use. this is actually a tiny fraction all out there on the internet. the vast majority of information is on what is called the deep web. >> what the deep web means that is the unstructured part of the web. >> cyber expert teresa payton says stuff on the deep web doesn't pop up with a google search. >> equivalent of leaving a major interstate highway to go on foot through a forest without a map and compass. >> created for legitimate reasons, protecting bank accounts, anonymity of those reporting human rights abuses. good intentions drew in bad actors who created the dark net. the wild west of internet commerce, where through a download digital footprints are dusted over. it is nearly impossible to track down who is running a site or from where.

50s near 60. won't be too too bad later on. you can start to see the back edge of that cloud cover which is just kind of moving over the western border of mecklenburg there, if you're west of the city right now, foothills, up toward the mountains, you probably have a sunnier, clearer start to the morning. overall, we'll have variable clouds around as we head through the day today, never going to be completely clear, during the day and we do have perhaps even a later tonight. we have a very weak but quick-moving front here, extending through the ohio river valley with showers back toward western parts of kentucky. those are going to be racing our way as we head through the afternoon and evening hours. so a small batch of those showers does look like it gets in the mountains, you see a small scattering, this is 5:00 this evening, as far as east of the mountains, most of the moisture is going to have a hard time making it out of there. but there is still the outside
again we're talking real, real low small coverage could maybe pick up a few sprinkles or just a real quick-hitting shower later tonight. time frame between 10:00 and midnight. talking late tonight, but if you're out for saturday night, again, be advised of the outside possibility you could have a couple quick rain drops before that exits off to the east and we clear the sky back out by first thing sunday morning and will stay that way through the balance of sunday afternoon. warmer weekend very small blip bump in the road for tonight with a couple of those showers, other than that, 58 this afternoon, 61 by sunday and that is not looking too bad. that upward trend in the temperatures will continue, well in next week. average high for the day is 60, today is the first day we got back up to that 60 degree average, this orange bar here is your average line, and look at where we're going, mid 60s monday and several days ahead that will be in the 70s starting tuesday of next week.
the next seven days, does it come with rain? probably not so much, our shower chances stay really low, actually, for the mid to later part of next week. looks like as we head in next friday night and next saturday, we'll pull that out here for you and show you the extended futurecast, as we head in saturday of next weekend, that is exactly one week from now, that is our next big shot at picking up rain as far as that is concerned, other than that, it is warm but mainly dry for us over the better part of the next seven days. that's a check of the forecast, kristen, back to you. >> kristen: highwaytoo busy to cook, a lot going on, check these out. stacey from gypsy soup calls these pop-ups. information about a great event coming up in a couple minutes,
