6:17 am
already. >> people like that but the summer clothes are out. we had a big thunderstorm yesterday morning. the national weather service issued a dense fog advisory for much of the area. we'll start with that. all the counties there in blue under a dense fog advisory. where is that gray? i can't see. until about 10:00 a.m. that includes the district of columbia, counties in close here in maryland, prince george's county, much of central virginia under the flowing advisory. visibilities in spots have been a quarter mile or less. so that will likely slow your commute a little bit if you are deal with the fog and if you are traveling by air today, could be a few problem spots down at reagan national or out at dulles here for the foreseeable future. temperature right now is down to 59. 59 now in washington so comfortfully cool although our
6:18 am
average daytime high now is only 58 degrees. so we are already above that. leonard up two, 57. annapolis, 59. should be a d.c. the day today, just like yesterday. we'll start with clouds and by this afternoon, at least par shall sunshine if not full sunshine by late in the day. could there be a shower today, yeah, but i think most of the ask will hold off for i afew more days with this cold front. this is very impressive. look at how the rain is just treatmenting from the south to the north through louisiana, arkansas and missouri. they are getting extremely heavy rain, lots of flooding problems out there that. front will very slowly track to the east and get in here by saturday. could bring us some showers and thunderstorms by about saturday and some cooler air behind it. temperatures by the end of the weekend, high temperatures will be in the low 50s. today, a nice one. 74. partly sunny skies. don't forget about the morning fog and fog advisory until 10:00 this morning.

6:20 am
hyattstown. no incidents, just volume delays. you will find slow traffic on the inner loop approaching 236. northbound 95 now starting to slow as you work your way north of the prince william parkway and continue across the occoquan. that's a check of your fox 5 on-time traffic. >> thank you. a parking change meant to make it easier for handicapped drivers to find a spot has been suspended. the red top meter program was meant to discorning drives would are not disabled from using handicapped smoots. it requires disabled drivers to feed the meter doing away with free spots. but the drivers are allowed to park for twice as long as the stated time. yesterday, the d.c. council passed emergency legislation to suspend the program for 90 days after american drivers complained they were getting hit by a $250 parking ticket. that is pretty expensive. up next here on fox 5 morning news, we'll go live to fox business network in new york city. even if you keep your facebook opinion private, more and more employers want to know what
6:21 am
you're posting on there. >> be careful. >> as we go to break, find your jeff daydreaming at work a lot perhaps? >> never. maybe you're thinking of a nice day at the beach. >> or a nap. >> you don't want to be at your desk. it could be the sign of a good lemery actually. that is according to the study out of the university of wisconsin madison. they found subjects who did that were more likely to score higher on a memory test. i don't think that works for me. >> not on this shift. >> i can't remember anything. >> be right back.

6:26 am
are either asking for your user name and password and they will log in whether they want to and you have the choice whether to fork it over or not or they are asking to log in right then and there using a work computer so she can see what you do and others are simply just asking to become friends with one of their human resources managerss so they can get greater access to what you do online. be careful. legality of this issue is very murky. it is a tough job market and many people mate say, you want to see my pictures from spring break, go ahead. but that could bite you in the butt in the end. >> it is so true. at what point does that become an issue that is not right for the employer to be doing. very interesting. thank you so much. we'll check in with you tomorrow. >> okay. allegations of bullying at a local school and it is the teachers who say they are being targeted. >> mitt romney can claim another win in the race for the presidential nomination. we'll have the results out of yesterday's primary in illinois when we come back. come back.

6:34 am
trouble. the complaint says that student scores are declining, that bullying problems are on the rise and teachers are fleeing. the complaint goes on to say it is the hostile environment and the behaviors of the principal here that is to blame. the 76-people lawsuit by the employees say the principal floyd starnes repeatedly harassed and threatened them. they claim he retaliated against those who complained. they also sent letters about their misconduct to the school administrator and they said the allegations that they asked for them to be investigated, that those were ignored. student ay they also have seen achievement. >> i have aseep it for myself. my sons were in good schools. when i brought them to camel mills, that is when things didn't go as well. now that i took them out of camel mill, they are at a new school and doing fine. have you to realize when the teachers are unhappy to come to

school, the kids can't get a good education. >> reporter: the school board -- the school spokesperson did send us a statement saying that these allegations have been raised, that they have been raised by the same employees in the past. they have been the subject of proceedings at various levels including the equal opportunity comoiment commission. it says in each of these proceedings to date, the allegations were found to have little or no merit. the eeoc did not move forward with any of the complaints. that is the position of the school board and the school administration at this point. the employees are seeking $18 million each for negligence for emotional distress and for economic damage. their attorney says that, if the school administration did the right thing in his words and fired the principal here, that the whole lawsuit would go away. back to you. >> thank you. society d.c. public schools are working to battle bullying. they ever set up a pan told discuss ways to prevent the
