5:03 pm
could not come up after them. police decided earlier on that they weren't going to do it because they said it was too dangerous. now, let's take up to the top of the crane. it is about 200 feet up in the air. there are five protesters up there. they've been up there since very early this morning. and what they're trying to do is roll up that banner. they had unfurled it earlier today. now they're trying to bring it back in. they're going to unhook it, and they're going to bring it back down with them where they're going to be met by the police once they do come down. let's show you some video that we shot earlier today. what we know, from law enforcement sources, is that seven protesters with green peace broke onto this or broke into this construction site sometime overnight. we're told by law enforcement sources that they're going to be charged with burglary, too, when finally taken into custody. what we know is that it was about 6:00 this morning, dc
5:04 pm
there were three men on the crane who shouldn't be there. that's when police arrived, and then they learned there were total of seven people on the crane, and then already making their way up to the top. according to dc police at that point they then connected that banner up there, which seysure cyst, and it took hours for them to finally get it unfurled so that it would be facing the white house, so that people at the white house could actually see it. now, in order to do this, it was extremely daring. they had two men who rep he'd down from each side of the banner, so that the banner could stay stiff in the wind so that it wouldn't be blown back so far that nobody could read it. and for hours they had two protesters sitting in mid-air by rope holding that banner in place. once they were
5:05 pm
like they had gotten their message across, both of them then rep pell back up to the crane, for the last several hours now we've been watching as they've been trying to pull this banner together. now, according to green peace these men are all have been recruited from all across the country, have technical skills in order to pull this off. and you can see from the way that they were doing this today that they definitely have the skills that rock climbers have in order to pull something like this off. they clearly have taken a lot of time to make sure that they do this right. and they do it safely. but down here on the ground we have seen number of people all day long, lunchtime crowd, were out here, they were watching what was going on, street block off, right now, only l street block off. now, let's couple from today,

5:07 pm

days. tomorrow we are 56. that will probably be one or 2:00. we cool off in the afternoon. winds will kick up, frontal system comes through, couple of showers tomorrow morning, early, early, probably right around sunrise. hopefully they won't affect the morning commute, too terribly much n terms of where we are going to be going here, i think what we will end up with, definitely with the cooler air on the way, and that's going to make things different for friday. because we will only be 46 degrees, on friday, for high temperature, and little cooler, i think, start headed into the weekend. how about tonight? mild at 7:00. fifty-four. the winds not going to below until tomorrow. so be real pleasant out there this evening. with temperatures dropping into the 50's. overnight lows will be in the 40's, right now, in the 50's, not too terribly cold up to the northwest, with the region, but along the front one band of showers. and then there is few showers coming in our direction, now, look, this is 8:00 tonight t looks all dry. we will just have more clouds coming in by 11:00 or so. so mostly cloudy here. and then tomorrow morning, not a lot, our in-house model not showing mucha
5:47 pm
most of us stay dry. this is 5:00 a.m. of course free at sunrise, by 8:00, 9:00 most will be east of us. sunshine will start picking up. have good sunshine tomorrow. but the winds will be strong, out of the northwest, okay, and snow, higher elevations, then the western facing slopes, they'll get good snow there. none of that will come across here. but the colder air just kind of keeps settling on in for the next 48 to 60 hours. and so that means basically as we get into the weekend things will be much, much cooler around here. mostly clouds tonight. then by tomorrow, and early shower possible, but i think most of us probably don't have to deal with that. and then breezy afternoon. winds out of the west northwest at ten to 20 miles per hour, have some gusts, though, up around 30 tomorrow. here is your seven day forecast. back to where we should be. if you like this kind of stuff. forty-six on friday. weekend we are talking middle 40's, next week, on monday, really cold. i think temperatures will only be 30's to maybe 40, for high temperature, and then we are in the 40's on down. so with the exception of tomorrow
