lightning but a little bit of heavy rain. here's a look at the day planner and the showers and storms on and off today. it's not going to rain all day but the threat is going to be with us this morning and midday and then again this afternoon and we get a lot of sunshine between the lines of storms mid if in the upper 80s and the more sun we see the more energy for potentially strong to severe storms this afternoon. right now it's a yellow alert day but if it looks leek severe weather is going to be more likely we may be declaring a severe weather alert day later. check in at noon for that. the morning's radar all late up. look at the other line in ohio and kentucky moving into west virginia. that's why we're thinking several rounds of storms today. the heavier rains a few hours ago. out west and all moved across us and look at this. little bit of lightning now showing up into north central montgomery county with the heavier rains there and really been coming town. here's a look on live doppler 9000 hd. as we're watching the radar view from montgomery into howard county. also another cluster off to the

the district. east of the bay and especially by the ocean some of the showers may linger all day. 23 you're going to the beach. 87. for sunday outlook is fine. 88-degrees and a sunny warm dry day even better monday. monday looks like a nice one if you can sneak a long weekend. 91 on monday and a few more showers and storms come tuesday 92. beverly farmer's been doing a great job filling in for monika this week. >> thank you hordes and a better job this morning for you? the weather forecast is certainly playing an issue for travelers on 66234 particular. to the west, well west of fairfax and see eunoia although moving well right here on wet pavement. the earlier storms between delaplane and marshall creteed issues -- created issues, eastbound traffic still slow getting by what's left of the earlier crash. in 29 south of 66 close to vent hill road and close to 15 due to the structure fire. southbound 23 a crash just cleared from the way and that
is good news. 95 travelers only volume draws to report into wood spring heading into springfield and on 395. maryland crash on the ramp from the inner loop to go on to new hampshire avenue -- sorry north on 95 that's been cleared from the roadway. andrea jessica back to you. thank you very much. we will have more right after this.

good morning everybody. robert griffin iii's debut as a redskin is in the books and he did as well as they would have hoped. it wasn't perfect. but it was good. we knew his debut would be short-lived and it was just 14 plays for the rookie. and he ended on a high note. let's get to those highlights. things did start out little rough last night. two handoffs to running back evan roisterredness really go anywhere a completion to -- roister didn't really go anywhere. and a completion didn't go anywhere as well. even though the bam was down, george wilson took it to the end zone and rg3 ran him down. no way buddy. third time was the charm for the rookie though. an eight play, 80-yard drive capped off the 20-yard screen pass to garcon who enjoyed a celebration flip into the end zone. i'm sure much to the dismay of his coaches. that would be it for rg3 and what was all in all a pretty
good night. >> it was a lot of fun. and i definitely feel like it was a lot easier. but like i said, it's -- it's the first one is always the toughest. but to get it out of the way and have a successful outing and get a touchdown on that drive to cap off our day really set the tone for the year. >> rg3 looked confident in his debut. he didn't take too many risks. but that will come with time. and another positive note, no sacks on the rookie. despite an o-line that's been hampered by injuries. that will do it for your morning suits, i'm -- sports, i'm kristen berset at ralph wilson stadium. have a great friday.
this is always the place to get your weather first. >> and we are taking a live look at reagan national airport where you see gray skies out there. howard east been talking about the rainstorms coming through potentially could delay some things, if you have a flight check the is that which is of the flight later this morning. >> thank you for starting your friday with us. i'm andrea roane? and i'm -- >> and i'm jessica doyle in for mike hydeck. howard bernstein the out on the weather terrace. >> that's lifted north and east for the moment but the threat for more showers and storms as we get later into today and potentially late this afternoon this evening we could be talking strong to severe thunderstorms. here's a look at the day planner we start with the picture at tysons corner. it is gray and damp there. car lights have the headlights on with the cars with the headlights on good idea. and i believe the law. this morning, we're looking at some scattered showers and storms. in fact, through midday and this afternoon scattered showers and storms. there will be breaks though.
it's not going to be the all day rain and the concern is the more sun we see the hotter we get, the stronger or maybe severe nature of the storms will develop by the afternoon and late afternoon evening. rain this morning pushing through. some of that is on the heavy side and the heaviest pushing through montgomery into howard county. southern and eastern frederick county and mount airy there to dayton ask columbia county. i-70 only still seeing moderate downpours. prince george's county just east of 301 seeing the heavier rains moving up to upper marlboro. we go farther south and look at this little lightning and thunder showing up there in mechanicsville and virginia beach. this is lifting to st. mary's and charles. calvert is going to get hit as well. temps this morning running still 80 in annapolis. but with the rain we cool down to 67 in leesburg and 68 in winchester and 69 in gaithersburg. i'll be back with a few minutes and talk about the weekend and let you know which is the
better day and right now, we go to beverly farmer she's in for monika samtani with timesaver traffic. busy morning especially out to the west howard with all the bad weather that had come through 66 fauquier county still dealing with the remnants ochoa crash eastbound coming in to marshall. westbound near the plains. right side of the roadway was still blocked there. and folks coming out of lynn don fauquier county you will have to deal with that. on 66 in manassas volume light even on the wet pavement. 29 lee highway shut down between lynnton hall road and route 15 with the commercial building fire. and so that's still not your access to 66. remember that. now if you're traveling on 395 northbound seeing a little volume delay heading up through landmark. brief delays after that to the 14th street bridge. your lanes are open on 270 headed south and you will finds the heaviest traffic getting into urbanna and hyattstown southbound. that's a lock at your dry.
back to you. "cbs this morning" just about 30 minutes away. >> and gayle king has a preview from new york. what do you have for thus morning? >> we will be ready. hello. we'll show you why the latest hurricane forecast may be more accurate than ever before. the new prediction calls for five the eight hurricanes this year including two or three major ones. plus why you might get a better deal right now buying a new car instead of a used one. how's that possible? we'll show you at 7:00. >> we'll be of whatting and good seeing you -- watching and good seeing yesterday handling the women on "the talk." going to do that again anytime soon? >> that was fun. anytime they asked me back i'm there. anytime i'm there. see you. >> all right. see you. a second person has died in that deadly house fire in prince george's county late wednesday afternoon. >> 15-year-old rickey cole died thursday. his 5-year-old niece jade buffaloe day it had day of the
fire -- died the day of the fire. her father remains in the hospital with severe burns covering half of his body. firefighters pulled all three from a burning duplex. fire investigators say an improperly plugged in air- conditioning unit is to blame for the deadly house fire. on carington court in capitol heights. prince george's county firefighters went door to door telling neighbors how to prevent electrical fires. bruce leshan has to look at what you can do keep your family safe. >> reporter: the toll of electrical fires in the united states is no pun intended just shocking. some 280 americans are killed each year. about 1,000 more injured according to the u.s. fire administration. and in this case, the fix apparently pretty darn simple. investigators say that an air- conditioning unit, a window unit like this, instead of being plugged into the wall, it is supposed to be, was plugged
first into an extension cords like this one -- cord like the one. then the extension cord was actually plugged into a power strip and then the power strip was plugged into the wall. the experts say that any small electrical tool or appliance that shorts even a little bit or smokes or gives off sharks needs to be replaced -- sparks needs to be replaced. power strips generally okay if you just plug a computer or cell phone, tvs into it. where you run into trouble is if you plug an extension cord in there and then run a whole bunch of other appliances off of this. anytime you have a plug near walter you need to have -- water you need to have one of these gfi switches. finally, if your light switches get hot or spark or if the lights flicker shut them off and have them professionally replaced.
26,000 residential electrical fires every year, $1 billion in damages, don't be a statistic. bruce leshan, 9news now. >> bruce adds the u.s. fire administration says electrical fires are worse in the winter when people are inside and using things space heaters. but clearly an air conditioner in the summer plugged into a cord that can't handle it is also a danger as well. a prince george's county man is behind bars this morning accused of sexually abusing three young children. investigators say michael brochu sexually abused a 120- year-old boy -- 10-year-old boy in his home. detectives tell 9news now they also believe brochu abused a 6- year-old family member and another 8-year-old boy in his care. the first man on the moon is recovering from heart surgery. neil armstrong commanded the apollo 11 mission that landed on the moon in 1969. upon stepping on the surface,
armstrong issued the immortal words that's one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind. a statement from nasa wished the 82-year-old former astronaut a quick recovery from cardiac bypass surgery. nasa acceptability back the first 360-degree color photos of mars. it shows the gail caterer the rover landed -- crater where the rover landed sunday night. you can see all of the photographs you want from curiosity by following the rover's twitter feed. jess? thanks andrea. we are watching your money this morning. and we're watching your credit cards. credit cards are going social. major credit cards companies are tapping into the power of social media to bring you new benefits and joining us now to talk about how you can get more for your money with your credit cards is john keirnan. credit hard cubs senior
analysis -- card hubs senior analyst. how are the credit card companies using those to expands the brands? >> well, it's important to talk about how the marketing is changed over the years. credit card companies if you might remember if you've ever been to college football game, you can sign up and get a free t-shirt: this is like candy for college students especially if they've been up for a while getting ready for the football game. but when the card act came out and increased transparency and consumer rights in the city that outlawed the -- industry that outlawed that kind of marketing. they needed a new way to reach the coveted demographic of college people who can be lifelong customers for mortgages and lones and bank accounts and et cetera. it was a perfect storm where the new law came out and at the same time, social media had
been kinds of growing in ubiquity. from 2005 to 2010 we saw something like a 70% jump in the number of people 18 to 29 using social media. and so it was a natural way for them to go from on campus to kind of taking the -- the credit card signup table into your living room. and so what they've been doing, we've seen examples of chase hosting facebook like contests where you can get $1 million randomly or $1,000 amazon gift card. >> there's a real value for people participating on the facebook apps so far because there's an actual payoff potentially there for you. >> basically not a whole lot of likelihood you will win but it gets people excited and interacting. >> tell us about the virtual rewards that you can possibly get -- using social media and credit cards. >> win of things we have seen is american express and the online gaming company zynga
came out with a farmville prepaid card to get frit real life money and spending is. i wouldn't do it. personally because it's probably not a great value. but for people who are really into the games, it's nice. and -- it's just another way for them to play off the interests of young people and the sites they use every day to push their products. >> it makes sense to grab the young people early. i signed up for my am excards back in college. thanks so much for coming in this morning to talk about the benefits. the time right now is 6:38. plus i'm going to have today's daily deals, thank you for getting up with us on this friday morning. you are watching 9news now.
bethesda. volume delays here and wet pavement and everyone dealing with that here at colesville road. on the outer loop to connecticut avenue checking for the report of crash and we're careful through that area. east on 66 still seeing volume days to get -- delays to get in to marshall because of a crash earlier and westbound near the plains the accident along the right side of the roadway. in manassas volume is light and lanes open but 29 shut down in gainesville south of 66 with the structure fire. 95, 395 slow in landmark and getting up to the 14th street bridge. jessica back to you. thanks beverly. the weekend is almost here that's a good thing. but if you ride the metro, you know that could mean another weekend of delays due to track work. both medical center and the bethesda stations on the red line will be closed beginning at 10:00 tonight. these closures will last all the way through sunday. now shuttle buses will be provided. red line riders should add an extra half hour to their trip. there are also be single
tracking an parts of the orange, blue and green line stations. so you know these things are out there. and you can plan accordingly. and also planning accordingly this morning what do you take with you? an umbrella and light coat for later on this even? >> maybe not the coat but a rain jacket if you're going on out the. the probably we will have is that we're going to have the showers and storms on and off. so they're going to be kind of -- >> most of the day? >> yes, into tonight even but there are going to be thymes the sun will be out. but the more times the sun is out potentially severe weather this afternoon. if we stay cloudier and more showery the weather won't be as bad later. the day plan they are morning. because that threat of showers and storms will be with us on and off all day. starting temperatures in the 70s and not a will the of o movement with the scattered showers and colloids around and sunny breaks. mid to possibly upper 80s but the more sun and the hotter we get that will fuel more energy into the thunderstorms that will be wanting to develop this afternoon and this evening.
we really have to pay attention late today as well with the threat for severe weather. right now we're at a cuello alert for -- yellow alert for the alert system. certain impacting the commute this morning and other jute door plans but if it's going to be see veer more we may up to at that time severe weather alert day. the rains that have been moving in during the last few hours some lightning and thunder in spots as well. west of us and now northeast and southeast of us here in washington. with the little lightning and thunder up in howard county and also down coming out of the colonial beach area to st. mary's and charles county. want to show you this on live doppler 9000 hd, lots of pockets of light rain across the region but the stuff that was in montgomery county 30 minutes ago? quickly is racing in to areas in howard county and also up to ellicott city and baltimore. that's all moving to the north and the east. and this is a pretty hefty rain there anding see montgomery county -- you can see montgomery county looking much better but columbia north to ellicott city.
