6:33 am
the suspect, a 52-year-old man exposing himself. the bus driver approached and told him to stop. the driver hay female acquaintance on the bus an asked her to keep an eye on the suspect. the suspect began arguing with the woman and the bus driver. the altercation continued outside of the bus. according to police, the suspect then struck the woman. the bus driver tried to intervene and that is when he was stabbed. the suspect took off running but police caught up with him. he is now in custody. the bus driver is 28 years old. he was tape to the hospital with nonlife-threatening injuries. police in palestinian prince george's prince george's count -- police in prince george's countiy are investigating the murder of a 17-year-old in the 2100 block of iverson street last night. he was pronounced dead at a hospital nearby. no word on any suspects in this case. protesters taking over freedom plaza could be mr. for months to come. it is. >> it is look being like they will get a permit extension. stacy cohan live in northwest with the details.

the protesters that sparked anti-wall street and anti-greed movement will be allowed to stay in a manhattan park. they can stay indefinitely as long as they obey the law. one of strat points these protests are focusing is on the economy and the financial struggle that many folks face now. >> new numbers show more household have small are incomes than they did during the recession. james rosen has more. >> reporter: president obama argues his policies helped avert a second recession but for many americans the recession is starting to look more and more like the good old days. real median annual household income fell during the recession by just over 3%. sin the so-called recovery began in june twoip, that income level has fallen by almost 7%. >> i think it is fair to say there really has not been a recovery at least in terms house hole income.
6:36 am
>> reporter: the economy has been growing since june 2009 although slowly yet incomes have fallen dramatically since then. how can that be? because stubborn unemployment is suppressing income levels. the average length of a worker's period of unemployment shot up by 45% from 16 1/2 week to six months. during our so-called recovery, average period a worker spent fining i new job rose by 6 #% to 10 months. >> many people to get ajob, they have to take a job that perhaps involves a pay cut for them or it is in a different line of work that they have to learn where they're starting at a lower level. so all of those factors combine together to produce a more difficult situation for people. >> reporter: as usual, those demographic groups already struggling felt the drop in incomes the hardest with african-americans registering the high of the rate of decline of any racial group. but the prime factor weighing down our economy is neither black nor white but red, ink. >> part of the reason we are in
6:37 am
such a dour economy is because the u.s. government is paying such a high interest rate to all the borrowing it is doing. >> reporter: through recession and recovery, today's report shows one thing remaining constant, the value of education. those were the bachelor's degree or high are saw their income levels drop by a full percentage point less than those who failed to complete high school. in wash, james rosen, fox news. bad news for basketball fans. first two weeks of nba season have been canceled. owners and players can't reach a labor deal. one of the prime sticking points is the salary cap structure. david stern says both sides are, quote, very far apart on virtually all issues. the detroit lions are one of two teams still undefeated. they beat the bears on monday night football, 24-13. best was the star of the game rushing for 163 yards. that included an # #-yard touch

6:43 am
will have to take the building apart from the top down and put it back together again. >> it is upable believe. it is absolutely unbelievable, i think. i don't know how long it's been here but to think that it shifted and to put it back together again is going to take a long time i assume. >> reporter: a long time and a lot of money. the cathedral must raise $25 million to pay for early restorations through next year. >> definitely and historic landmark and we should try to preserve it and do whatever we got for do to keep it intact. >> reporter: the pinnacleles are put together in pees. once inspection begins, any stones in danger of falling will be immediately removed by hand if possible. >> it is wonderful that the masons are here and the technology exists to make it right again. >> reporter: years say the inside of the building is sound. the cathedral reopens november 12th. the goal now is to make sure

6:45 am
the day. our temperatures are good. it is mild i would say outside, 63 degrees the current temperature in washington. annapolis at 65 degrees. salisbury, 60 degrees. it is cooler out to our west where winchester is 54 degrees at this hour. here is a look at the sentinel satellite-radar as we continue to talk about moisture down to the south. area of low pressure well off to the south and west of us, we have this rain wrapping around that area of low pressure and as you can see, it is pushing into the mid high pressure atlantic states from the south to the north. rainfall now across southern portions of virginia and some rainfall beginning to develop in south central virginia so this will be pushing into our area later on today and tonight. could see a couple of showers push in here during the afternoon hours although the bulk of this would be during the nighttime hours and during the day tomorrow. we'll keep our eyes open and watch the timing of this. your forecast for today looks
6:46 am
like this. mostly cloudy skies, yesterday, we had the high cirrus clouds. those clouds will lower and thicken during the course of the day. a few late day showers are possible. 73degrees for your high today. then for tonight, more cloudiness. we will see rain develop during the overnight hours. 60degrees for your overnight low. so the temperatures aren't bad. five-day forecast, we'll show you tomorrow our temperatures are in the 60s. clouds, rain during the course of the day. could be some spots of heavy rain i think primarily out to the west. thursday, maybe some lingering showers, particularly in the morning. high into the low and mid-70s and tsaturday, we dry out. temperatures begin to drop off. there you go. hello, tucker barnes. >> good morning. >> tucker is at the desk so you know it is time for ask the weather guys. it is the segment where tucker and i put our big heard together to answer your most pressing questions, weather-
6:47 am
related or otherwise. today's question, quite fascinating from beverly in anisville, virginia. she writes i have sometimes done some weather serving and checking out the forecast on other steve stations. >> what until. >> ooh! >> she says, i know, shame on me. >> i feel like i've been cheated on. >> she probably just did it to see how much better you are. >> at least she is being honest. my question is why is this such a did you have rens from -- such a difference from one station to another. >> very simple answer, you're right, they're wrong. >> that is essentially the answer. we did watch for a while and we put together the accuracy rate. we had some interns assigned and we had them watch the other stayings and here what is we
6:48 am
came up with. we are accurate 84% of the time. all the other local stations combined only 57%. and that is combined. >> these are interns doing this. >> yeah, so -- this is not an actual scientific poll. >> and very subjective. in our view, we are far more accurate. forecasters, there is certain data put out by the national weather service. there are weather data providers that we and other companies subscribe to. you may get a difference rent misks models appear maps at different stayings or different outlets, newspapers are looking at to come up with the forecast. and then, a part of it is your own intuition. of a been forecasting here for 20 years. tucker certainly for a long time.
6:49 am
