10:08 pm
heard audio of the saint lewis county prosecutor reading that decision and we have their reaction as well. >> after exhaustive review of the evidence the grand jury deliberated over two days making their final decision. they determined no probable cause exists any charge against officer wilson... >> boo! >> overall i'm not okay with the verdict. i'm not going to into reaction or emotions but we do need to get more organize. get more political lobbyism hyped people putting black people, poor people to change the country. socially, institutionally politically and economically racist. >> reporter: those protesters took their anger right to market street. they left did it dilworth plaza and went down market to voice their anger shouting no, no piece. a lot of people saying black lives don't matter and many
10:09 pm
people saying that they now have to reorganize since they consider this a major set back. lucy and iain. >> from dave on the ground to skyfox live overhead right now. let's take those pictures. you can see those protesters that dave was just talking about marching still down market street. we're trying to catch up to it here. you can see a couple of folks here and there. all life as we said. chris o'connell is in north philadelphia and coming up a little later in the hour the reaction the moment local business owners heard tonight's announcement but first right now let's go to the white house and the president for his reaction. >> it's not an out come either way was going to be subject of intense disagreement not only in ferguson but across america. so i just want to say a few words suggesting how we might move forward. first and for most, we are a nation built on the rule of law, and so we need to accept that this decision was the grand
10:10 pm
jury's to make. there are americans who agree with it, and there are americans who are deeply disappointed even angry. it's an understandable reaction. but i join michael's parents in asking anyone who protests this decision to do so peacefully. michael's father's words. hurting others or destroying property is not the answer. no matter what the grand jury decides, i did not want my son's death to be in vain. i want it to lead to incredible change, positive change, change that makes the st. louis region better for everyone. michael brown's parents have lost more than anyone. we should be honoring their wi wishes. i also appeal to the law
10:11 pm
enforcement officials in ferguson and the region to show care and restraint in managing peaceful protests that may occ occur. understand, our police officers put their lives on the line for us every single day. they have a tough job to do to maintain public safety and hold accountable those who break the law. as they do their jobs in the coming days, they need to work with the community, not against the community, to distinguish the handful of people who may use the grand jury's decision as an excuse for violence, distinguish them from the vast majority who just want their voices heard around legitimate issues in terms of how communities and law enforcement interact. finally, we need to recognize that the situation in ferguson speaks to broader challenges that we still face as a nation.
10:12 pm
the fact is in too many parts of this country a deep distrust exists between law enforcement and communities of color. some of this is the result of legacy of racial discrimination in this country, and this is tragic because nobody needs good policing more than poor communities with higher crime rates. got news is, we know there are things we can do to help, and i've instructed attorney general holder to work with cities across the country to help build better relations between communities and law enforcement. that means working with law enforcement officials to make sure their ranks are representative of the communities they serve. we know that makes a difference. it means working to train officials so that law enforcement conducts itself in a way that is fair to everybody. it means enlisting the community
10:13 pm
actively on what should be ever's goal and that is to prevent crime, and there are good people on all sides of this debate as well as in both republican and democratic parties that are interested not only in lifting up that practice because we know that that there are communities who have been able to deal with this in an effective way, but also who are interested in working with this administration and local and state officials to start tackling much needed criminal justice reform. so, those should be the lessons that we draw from these tragic events. we need to recognize that this is not just an issue for ferguson. this is an issue for america. we have made enormous progress in race relations over the course of the past several decades. i have witnessed that in my own
10:14 pm
live, and to deny that progress i think is to deny america's capacity for change. but what is also true is that there are still problems and communities of color aren't just making these problems up. separating that from this particular decision there are issues in which the law too often feels as if it is being applied in a discriminatory fashion. i don't think that's the norm. i don't think that's true for the majority of communities or the vast majority of law enforcement officials, but these are real issues. and we have to lift them up and not deny them or try to tamp them down. what we need to do is to understand them and figure out how do we make more progress? and that can be done. that won't be done by throwing
10:15 pm
bottles. that won't be done by smashing car windows. that won't be done by using this as an excuse to vandalize property and certainly won't be done by huring anybody. so, to those in ferguson, there are ways of channeling your concerns constructively and there are ways of channeling your concerns destructively. michael's -- brown's parents understand what it means to be constructive. the vast majority of peaceful protesters, they understand it as well. those of you who are -- >> you've been listening to president obama reaction to the decision of the grand jury not to indict the white police officer in the killing of michael brown urging calm and saying the family would be honored by a very peaceful protest and we'll have more reaction on this of course coming up later tonight. chris o'connell is no north

10:35 pm
scott, after 72-degree record setting day? >> we're looking at spring being replaced by winter. iain that's what's on your radar and also we're watching ultimate doppler. you can see cold air bringing snowfall around parts of the great lakes. that cold will move a little farther to the east, and we're watching some moisture that will be streaming up from the south developing into that area of low pressure. the nor'easter as we move toward the middle of the week. so a pre thanksgiving day storm. rain will be changing over to wet snow. it look like that cold air will be moving in to allow for that change over. so if you have travel plans, travel tomorrow, change your flights to tomorrow. or just fly out on thanksgiving day if you can because it look like conditions will go downhill rapidly during the day on wednesday. rain to heavy wet snow. winter storm watches posted along i-95 north and west for the heaviest snowfall north and west. here's the european model has a pretty good handle. where you see the darker blue that is showing you the higher accumulations. my forecast coming up at the end of this broadcast and weather
10:36 pm
forecast of you can see temperatures right now still pretty mild. we're looking at 66 degrees at 10:36 in philadelphia unheard of for the latter part of november. 72 that was the new record. replacing the old 171 degrees set back in 1979. i hope you enjoyed it. we're looking at mild conditions overnight tonight in the 50s really and then tomorrow a little cooler than today. upper 40s to low and mid 50s across the area but still not that bad. but look at wednesday. yeah, by 4:00 in the afternoon we're looking at 34 degrees in philadelphia. with wet snow likely occurring across the area and then we're looking at a changeover even down the shore as we move into your wednesday evening. so warm roads, of course, with 70-degree plus today. watching for banding features. the intensity, the amount of cold air will likely create its own environment as we see the heavier reprieve sip begin but the track it looks like the models are starting to come into agreement with that track moving
10:37 pm
a little closer to the west. so we are looking at that rainfall beginning overnight tuesday into wednesday morning. starting out as mainly rainfall but look at the clock. by midday we're looking at the pink that's the rain changing over to wet snow across the philadelphia area. north and west will change over to snowfall first and stay the longest as snowfall by five in the afternoon wet and wintry mess across our area. that snowfall accumulating primarily on the grassy surfaces but look at 8:00 o'clock. it's progressive moving out of here. so we're quiet as we move into thanksgiving but certainly still chilly across the area. so my expected snowfall total map you can see mainly rainfall down the shore interior sections of south jersey, one to 2-inches. that includes cherry hill, deptford moving down to salem into new castle county as well. wilmington, philadelphia, trenton we could see from two to 4-inches of a slushy accumulation.
10:38 pm
north and west once you move north of the turnpike four to sick inches. doylestown you're in that as we move toward the lehigh valley and the pock knows we're looking at six or more inches. so the timeline you can see for the lehigh valley and poconos, changing over to wet snow between 9:00 and noon. staying snow and then tapering off during the afternoon and evening for the philadelphia area. starting as rain, staying rain through about mid morning to noon but then in the afternoon we change over to that wet snow as well and it is going to snarl traffic on wednesday. 39 that's it for the high temperature. low 40s for thanksgiving staying chilly for friday and then we gradually moderate as we move into the upcoming weekend. but a lot of flights you can change for free because of the impending weather. that's the good news. >> thank you very much, scott. >> scott, thank you. we are continue to follow breaking news in ferguson missouri. here's a live look on the grou ground. pan film have been some reports of rioting you see police in riot gear.
