6:07 pm
works. and but for the interlock, she would have been driving more. >> reporter: she had her bond revoked today, left court in hand kufrs. a frustrated judge calling her a liar, an alcoholic, a threat to kill somebody else. >> this is an individual that was given multiple chances, both at sentencing and through her probation time to rehabilitate herself or keep herself on the straight and narrow and some jail time is certainly appropriate. >> reporter: prosecutors and police say this case further highlights the need for even tougher drunk driving laws that are now before the general assembly in annapolis. >> last week there was a full day of testimony regarding not just mel's law but three other bills that will help make it easier to make the roads safer through the enforcement of dui laws. >> reporter: she lk sentenced in june, could be ordered to survey full 20 years in prison. in rockvil

local news. >> we had a taste of spring but it was short-lived and there could still be a chance for snow in the forecast. sue palka is here to tell us all about it. >> there's definitely a chance. most of the day will be fine tomorrow. the storm we're watching up towards the pacific northwest, the northern plains will be diving in our area and after say 8:00, or 9:00 tomorrow night is when we may have a chance for another last gasp of accumulating snow. it will be around tomorrow and we'll be getting ready to ditch those big winds a little bit later. satellite and radar we have clear skies, diminishing snow showers over western pennsylvania. we have to look up here towards montana to find our next system and it is going to be moving in this direction as high pressure continues to supply cold air certainly aloft. at the surface a lot of this initially may melt. but it will begin to affect our area we think after 8:00 tomorrow night. there could be a few inches
6:09 pm
some spots though by friday morning as our area of low pressure dives off to the south and east. just got some new information in that wants to suggest that south and east of dc there could even be two, maybe three or four inches. that's exactly where we had kind of placed that snow. so a moderate impact potentially for our friday morning and we'll just give you the main points here. the morning rush hour could be affected. i would likely expect a winter weather advisory to go into effect sometime tomorrow night to cover friday morning and that heaviest snow south and east. luckily highways are in good shape because temperatures have been fairly mild in the days preceding today and chemicals will work on this snow. but it could be enough to slow you down and maybe produce a few more delays. much more on the 7-day forecast which has a whole lot of warm air on it. i know you'll like that part of the forecast. >> thanks, we'll see you in a few. now to a fox 5 follow-up, we first told you about an

6:11 pm
better. >> he's received a lot of support from a lot of people all over the country. >> what a super tuesday it was for presidential candidates donald trump and hillary clinton. >> we are going to make america great again. >> america never stopped being great. >> but not everyone is pleased with the results. what some voters started googling as the final tally came in. >> and here's something to think about the next time you ride metro. it is a breeding ground for some very serious viruses. we're going to tell you what tests show is lurking underground. stick around. fox 5 news at 6:00 will be right back.

6:14 pm
just behind me off of franconia road here at a residence. i have with me fairfax county officer tonya wright and you're saying right now this is in the negotiations phase because when officers approached, there were gunshots fired. >> from my understanding officers were dispatched to a suspicious event. as they approached the house shots came out in their direction. we've been trying to make contact with the person or the man inside, trying to resolve the matter peacefully and get everything taken care of as quickly as we can. >> to be clear, nobody was injured. >> nobody was injured. >> reporter: however you are asking residents to seek covered cover. >> when those shots came out, we let people know stay inside and find a safe place. we're trying to get it resolved quickly and peacefully and hopefully it will be evended soon. >> and this is larkspur drive. you have a fairly large perimeter that's been set up. >> we have our canine
6:15 pm
on scene, we have patrol officers, pretty much everybody who is available right now. because there are the threat of gun shots. we're trying to keep everybody safe, we're trying to keep the neighbors safe, the man safe. so we definitely have a lot of officers on a scene like this. we have anybody who can help here here. >> reporter: so it is a barricade situation. you are saying that it was a suspicious call. can you elaborate us as to what you define as suspicious. >> i don't really know the details of what happened. i just showed up also and i'm trying to read through the history. just like notes coming out. suspicious activity, suspicious vehicle. typically that meanses something is unnish, there's not a crime necessarily but that's how it gets dispatched. we know it's not a crime and right now it seems like there's a man in need of help and we're trying to get him out and trying to get him taken care of. >> reporter: do we know if there's anyone else in the home? >> that's part of what we're trying to determine. as far as what i have heard there is not. we obviously can't see through
6:16 pm
walls. we're taking this with as much caution as possible. >> reporter: we're going to keep you posted here as everything develops here in franconia. back to you guys. >> thank you. >> we'll be right back.

super tuesday has come and gone, and based on the results, some voters are trying to get out of dodge. google searches for how to move to canada spiked following donald trump's wins in seven states last night. we should say also following hillary clinton's wens. google's data editor was the first to tweet out this imagine on the twend. most of the inquiries came from massachusetts. according to mashable by midnight how to move to canada had risen by 1,150%. it later dropped down to around the 500 % mark. google says those numbers are quote, dynamic changing

>> wow. >> a play dough fingerprint mold may be able to by pass security and unlike an iphone. they pressed their finger into the play-dough. in most cases on the first try, the phone easily unlocked. controversy around apple security has escalated. >> you think it's this security think and you stick it in play-dough and it works. >> i guess maybe the fbi will try that on that phone? >> i'm surprised they didn't do something like that anyway. >> this may not come as a surprise, but there are thousands of germs all over the metro system. >> serious germs, in fact. a recent study looked at public transportation, in new york, washington, d.c., chicago, boston and san francisco. grabbing a
6:20 pm
york subway system transfers as much bacteria to you as shaking hands with 10,000 people. researchers found there's about 2 million colony forming units per square inch in the big apple. 2 million. compare that to dc. there are only 30 colony forming units, but metro, dc's metro, is the only train system to test positive for the germs that cause strep and staph infection he is. >> use those wipes, use that hand sanitizer. maybe wear a glove. >> that's gross. >> it's a sure sign that spring is almost here. >> the national between march 31st and april 3rdrd. sue palka, yay! >> and that's earlier than last year. >> that's their first attempt at figuring it out.
6:21 pm
sounds good to us. >> but i have to say, tony and shawn, year after year, they're very good at getting within a few days of that actual bloom when is when it's 70% are open. maybe it will be a little early for the festival. it's march 20th to april 17th. i love the way they go down there and see when it's going to be time to make that prediction and every year they do give a first call in early march. typically it's right around april 4th. so that's a little bit earlier than average and definitely earlier than the last several years. so a good sign and there definitely are some blossom-coaxing temperatures on the 7-day forecast which you'll see in a moment. but also a little bit of snow to get through and some cold temperatures before we can get to blossom watching. those cold temperatures will be around tonight but it will be a quiet night. thursday is also a dry day as
6:22 pm
the snow that we're keeping an eye on is going to be getting closer to us thursday night. evening rush hour you're going to be just fine. watch the timer here you can see this is starting to push into our area after 8:00 or 9:00, and you'll see that continuing until we get into probably 10:00 or 11:00 friday morning. everything is going to move really quickly. it continues into friday morning. let's look at the future cast for that time frame as well because we do think this is going to have an impact on our morning commute, clearly. it doesn't take much. and there is a little band you see this on our future cast down to the south and east of 59 where we think there could be more of our significant accumulation. but by 10:00, 11:00, everything is out of here. clearly with the time frame being one that will affect the friday morning commute, this will have a moderate impact. quiet tonight, a few lake effect snow showers that you can see this. technically it's not a clipper system, it is
6:23 pm
system with a little bit of pacific moisture to it, it will grab a little bit of gulf moisture as well. the sweet spot is just south and east of dc across perhaps charles county, maybe a little bit of anne arundel and down into king george and places like essex getting a little bit more with a general 1-2 for the rest of us and another place up here maybe a little bit more with two more significant can't bands west of the hagerstown area. not the biggest storm but just enough, sometimes they can be a bit disruptive as well. we believe chemicals will work well and road temperatures have been mild so a lieutenant of that will melt off the roadways. gaithersburg you're already down to 32. it's going to be a cold night tonight. this is quite a large temperature change as you've seen in the last 24 hours and those winds will get a little bit better as we go forward. but we're going to jump you to the 7-day forecast because after we get through friday, a few
6:24 pm
saturday afternoon, and then we start a bit of a pattern change. 50 on sunday. so not terribly warm. still a little bit below average for this time of the year, but monday, tuesday, wednesday, check out these temperatures, including tuesday, up to 28 -- 68 degrees. we think fredricksburg might even get up to 71 degrees.
6:25 pm
6:26 pm
