this is 2:00 o'clock on future cast. keep in mind 30 just 30 was our high last sunday. so compared to one week ago today we have made major improvement as far as the temperatures are concerned. clouds briefly cleared out overnight which actually contributed to that thick fog that has formed. clouds are now moving back in from the southwest so by the time the sun does come up shortly after 7:00 a.m. it will be mostly cloudy for all of us. there's a couple showers getting to us at the state line but this is part of a disturbance. the center of the storm is bypassing us to the north but it is dragging a weak front through the area that will cross through the carolinas later on this evening which is why the shower chance will be with us later on this afternoon and evening. so future cast does still paint
or highest coverage in the mountains as we head through this evening and into tonight. as we do head into monday we never shake the clouds. eighteen though the first part of the day on monday should be dry for most of us we're going to have more rain lifting back in from the south into monday evening and monday night. that will be our second batch of rain which will bee the second of three or four separate chances to pick up rain this week. so it's going to be kind of wet over the next seven days head. fifty-seven in boone will be your sunday afternoon high. again highest shower coverage for the mountains and foothills. even in the foothills you should be in the 60s for highs. upper 60s for us in the charlotte area. we'll call it around 68. so 12 degrees above average getting closer to 70 maybe low 70s for places. across the upstate of south carolina this afternoon. lows tonight hold around 50 and tomorrow we'll be just around 60
start to cool off upper 40s and 50s along with the wettest days of the week. we do see temperatures back in the 50s late week and dryer next weekend. >> brody, back to you. >> what's there to do on a cold snow day? seth has found a hot sports winter activity. check it out. >> sure they're monkeys but haven't you felt like this? really who could refuse a steaming hot bath on a cold winter's day. this guy seems so relaxed he can't quite keep his eyes open. these snow monkeys come down from the mountains in japan seeking warmth and as you might imagine plenty of humans come seeking them. we made the trek in through a thick forest of japanese cedar along with a group of photographers. lead by mark. >> i'm not a wildlife
photographing the monkeys because they have such human characteristics. >> they have it made. they have the light. >> teachers from milwaukee first saw snow monkeys in national geographic. >> we see them relaxing and doing something we enjoy doing. >> these primates prefer to bathe during age clement weather and the snow makes the perfect backdrop -- in college mant. >> that produces a nice soft appearance for the monkey face and plus because these are snow monkeys we want snow. great story right there. the snow monkeys of japan plus oscar nominee jennifer jason lee and books that reveal hidden secrets. those stories and more this sunday morning on wbtv. it starts at 9:00 o'clock. there's much more ahead including coverage of the zika virus. there's one reported case in north carolina. this morning we have an expert
let it play let the music play well zika virus has been causing anxiety that has crept through the workplace and this morning we have travis here to talk about what you need to know. travis is an attorney and he's going to offer some important advise you may want to think about. first of all thanks for coming in. >> i really appreciate it. >> what are some of the hot topics that you want people to know and be thinking about? >> first thing of travel
stop somebody from traveling to brazil and another country? >> you can't stop your employees from traveling overseas and that includes any pregnant employees that you have because zika the pregnant folks. >> and we know most of this where olympic games are going to be taking place. i'm sure a lot of folks who are making plans to go south whether they're athletes or recreational time but the important thing is if they're on personal time you can't be denied. >> you can't prohibit the lawful activity when they're off-duty. now if you're sitting in there to work that's where osha kicks in if there's a reasonable basis for that employee to think that they're in danger of immanent death or serious injury then they can say no, i'm not going. how do you prevent that as an employer you educate your
you make sure they have mosquito repellant and educate them on what can happen and if you do that then that burden of immanent death would be met. >> there was a case in north carolina. what changes as far as people being concerned about going to the workplace here at home? >> i think it's really going to change as it gets warmer in north carolina because there's two different species of mosquitoes that carry the virus. one is found in north darrell line that. so it's -- north carolina. it's going to be a different story this summer because the mosquitoes are here. the virus is transmitted by or through exchange of blood or sexual activity. in the workplace it's not going to be an issue but when the mosquito is here it's going to change the story. >> i think one of the important things we want folks take out of
travel and your employer tries to step in the way what should you do? >> well the employer can't do that. if you're wanting to go olympics or go off-duty -- the employ i don't remember can't stop you from doing that and as we've seen on the screen when they come back if an employee goes brazil and comes back to north carolina your employer may say well, if you're running a fever or something like that one of the symptoms of zika we want you to have a medical examination the burden for the employer to do that the legal burden is high. the employer would have to show that the employ gee a direct threat to the workplace before they could make them go get a medical examination. so if your employer you have an employee to go brazil and comes back and they're running a 73 very be very cautious before i make them get a medical
>> if you're an employee and your employer wants to send you, what do you do in that situation? >> i would make sure that you have an understanding is this place where there has been an zika outbreak? how can i prevent mosquito bites. that's the big issue mosquito bites. seek information from your employer. make sure they understand where you're going to if there has been an outbreak and do everything you can to prevent mosquito bites. >> we have a website up in case this is something you've been thinking about or might come up in your life. some good news we saw things are expected to quiet down in brazil in particular come the olympic games so they're hoping the numbers drop there. some good news there but it's going to be an interesting story once we start to warm up up here. >> i would say lawyers don't know everything. there's great resources centers for disease control, osha dot
