>> right. > coming up next, find out why president elect donald trump was in d.c. why two local counts congress men are skipping the activities. a lot of action at the capital, especially on friday and a look at it tonight. you can barely see it because the fog has been moving in even to the district. as a matter fact we do have a dense fog advisory in effect for many areas north of the city, including northern and western montgomery all of howard, western loudon. could that get extended? it could, you'll notice it only goes until 4 in the morning. we're hoping a front will come through and chaise this out of the way before you have to dry, but visibilities are a little bit poor at this hour. we'll have the rest of your seven day forecast coming up in a few minutes. this is a good question and we got some good answers from you. what type of airline passenger do you find the most annoying, the one that sits next to you and can't stop talking, screaming baby, coming up, a survey ranked the t

of president elect's twitter freud with senator lewis. brown and buyer talked about their decision on fox5 morning. i wrestled with this and after months and months of hearing disparaging comments by mr. trump, the tipping point was the remarks he made about representative john lewis. it wasn't the insults to john lewis the person and the civil rights hero, but he disrespected the office. all this last week we've had these intelligence reports coming out about how much the russians intentionally and maliciously tried to steer this election in trump's favor, that adding to the lying again and again without apology, the huge disrespect for women. it's one thing to respect the presidency, it's another thing to normalize annually jet myself a man's values from
hold deer. they say they respect the presidency and will attend the state of the union address when the president presents his plans to congress. > some fog developing out there across much of our area. we saw how much it can change within the span of a few minutes. the capital, the visibility has dropped here in d.c. to about two miles now. but it looks like it's gotten a little bit worse. that's going ebbing and flowing throughout the night. i'm hoping by morning rush hour this fog is out here. we do have a fog that will come through and get rid of it. if not, check out your window and check out mike thomas the first thing tomorrow morning. he'll let you know if fog is slowing you down. right now we think it will expire at 4 in the morning. have you noticed that we are slowly adding daylight. i love this picture picture sent to us. we added 1 minute 33 seconds. tomorrow the sun comes up at 7:24 and goes down at
daylight savings time begins march 12. meanwhile it's hard to see around in a few spots because visibility in a few places like baltimore and annapolis credit has dropped to a quarter of a mile. a quarter mile in martinsburg and winchester. take it easy out there and do know that tomorrow i expect the breeze toic p up which would get rid of the fog. it's going to be a milder day, a dryer day and eventually a sunnier day on wednesday. but you'll notice that the breeze which will be out of the northwest at times gusting to 20 miles an hour will make it noticeable. if there's a little bit of cloud cover left at 8 in the morning i don't think it will last long much our temperature will be mild overnight. we'll be really close to where our temperatures are right now, not dropping, even rising a little bit. by noon 55-degrees, breezy, by 4:00 58-degrees. some places south of the city could hit 60s. maybe north and west you stay in the upper 40s. still all of these temperatures are above average for this time of year.
a few more showers skoog across the mason dixon line. certainly a little bit of mist and drizzle. we missed out on that part of the storm system and we've got the warm front coming through tonight. we've dropped a little bit in the district but we've been going back and forth between the upper 40s to low 50s. warm front is pushing on through to the north and it will be a mild day for us tomorrow. still a few spots have some trapped cold air which you could see here out towards the mountains, pittsburgh 53, new york city still cooler at 38 degrees, but everybody warms up tomorrow. the frontal boundary will swing on through and allow high pressure to brighten things up but to also brighten things up. leonardtown about 56, frederick 536789 i wanted to point out we're expecting a few showers around here, a little bit of light rain, maybe moderate rain friday afternoon. the wettest inauguration we've ever had was rooselt
they got 1.77 inches of rain. roosevelt had a half of inch of rain as he drove down pennsylvania avenue. and the temperature at noon was only 33 degrees. it could be worse. our forecast forth inaugeral 48-degrees with some light rain beginning about 1:00 lasting through the evening hours. for the weekend, dryer for saturday. monday heavy rain possible, 58-degrees and tuesday about 356. we're staying mild most of this week. tony and shawn, that's your seven day forecast. >> thank you, sue. well, it is no secret thatfullying can be frustrating especially because of other people on your flight. never you, it's other people. >> of course it's the other people. the travel site ex media is out with its airplanette quit stud definitely it ranks the most anothing behalf. 54 percent ranked kids that kick the rear of your seat as the most problematic passengers. also rounding out the top five,
the in attentive parents or the people who wear way too much colon or perfume also the audio insensitive. you know the people who talk really loudly or listen to loud music or have loud conversations. >> i don't want to hear your conversation. and the number five, the bossies, the drunk and disrupt them on flights. > we asked our viewers on twitter tonight what type of airline passenger drives nuts. we got lots of responses. francis reamers, people that get super aggressive to be the first person in line to board. hashtag calm down. this came from tamm, she wrote don't fly often but it rei hate when they refuse to check bags and use the overhead. chronic bee have you ever seen. this one is from stieve nelson that person that talks your head off at the gait and then does the same thing when the

shanahan was the one who drafted both robert griffin and kirk cousins. the younger shanahan likes cousins, so does mcveigh. the skins also need a defensive coordinator and today outside linebacker greg ma news ski was interviewed. he began his coaching career in 2001. he previously served as defensive coordinator for the colts and niners. jason tarver will interview for the same job. people say tennis is a contact sport. i beg to differ. stand well far court, less and, a possible shot. that wasn't the knee. no, no, not the knee. replays show it was elsewhere. he gets hit in let's say the tender parts. he accepted the
he advances to the second round. hockey fights are rare, goal i fights even more rare, but not recently on the east coast hockey league. boom, good night, michael houser taken to the ground with a straight right and that is a look -- that's ugly. you don't see a loft goal i fights. there you go. you don't see a lot of news people fights. not until we're off the air. ready to rumble. that does it for us. stay tuned, tmz isssss
