6:02 am
all were talking about. think of it like all of the kids, all of the people -- not kids but younger folks, age 30 and under, instead of going out to the bars, instead of going out and seeing a late night movie, a lot came here to this opening of the macy's. so, you had this younger crowd going through here, apparently there were hundreds of people in line and they've kind of -- now, it is getting to be 6:00 a.m. they're tired, they're going home. now are we starting to see the 30s plus crowd starting to come in and they're only starting their black friday day. i'm told we're in a little bit of a lull now. that's why you're starting to see a little bit less crowds but don't be fooled here. there are lots of people inside this store. they're scooping up some pretty amazing deals and i want to show you all some of the deals that people are getting as they walk through macy's and buying christmas presents this black friday. we can just take a look at my ipad. i've pulled up the macy's web site. these are some of the deals
6:03 am
that people are scooping up. probably the biggest one, i can zoom in over here, this is one that was absolutely huge! you buy $65 worth of fragrance and you'll get a free digital video camera. this was the door buster deal only as long as supplies last. i believe they still have a few here but it is going to go very, very quickly. just some other things that were really big. you buy a comforter, you get two bonus pillows. here, you have a sweater regularly $100. you can get it for $40. cashmere sweater. diamond studs, look at this. regularly $600 fnls you can get it here at macy's for only $200. again, keep in mind, all of the deals are, of course, only as long as supplies last. so, if you want to get them, you have to get out here quick. you just think about this whole movement that we're seeing this black friday. just really it is almost starting on thanksgiving. so, a lot of people love it. some people hate it but certainly still a lot of crowds
6:04 am
out here today. back to you, mike and surae. >> kristin, those are some awesome deals. i can see why people are sleep deprived. all right. this morning, the guardian angels are offering protection for black friday shoppers. they're starting this hour at the columbia heights metro station by handing out safety tips to passersby. and will move to other metro stations later in the day. the gordian angels are also giving shoppers escorts to and from stores and say they'll be on the lookout for snatch and grabs, car break-ins and other crimes of opportunity. >> the black friday shoppers scoff at actually waiting until friday as kristin was saying. hundreds of people lined up outside the toys "r" us and the fair lakes shopping center last night. probably that morning because the store opened at 9:00 p.m. shoppers told us they were looking for deals on the toys for their kids and some small electronics. store managers told us they worked to set up the aisles so customers could find the deeply
6:05 am
discounted items eedly and stationed employees in front of the biggest bargain deals. >> if you are going to venture out shopping later this morning, head over to our web site first at we have a complete guide to black friday deals including store map layouts as well as what time the stores and malls are opening. hey, mike? >> if you're brave to head out and do your shopping this weekend, get some of the holiday presents out of the way. chances are you will be getting some deals. however, the one thing you should do before you head out is start with a budget. joining us now, personal finance expert jennifer streaks. you can get the deals but how you shop is important. >> it is so important because you don't want black friday to turn into credit card debt monday. so, what i tell consumers is to -- anyone that you're buying a gift for, set a budget up. say i want to buy this person a digital camera and get this individual a necklace and that's my cash. that's what i'm using. when i'm done with it, it is over with. you're out of the store.
6:06 am
you get to take better advantage of the deals because if you're still paying interest after the sale is over, after the product is used, you really lost the black friday discount. >> as we were talking before, you don't have to walk out of the store with the item today because there are deals down the pike. >> there are deals down the pike. there are deals that are online that you can also look out for. it is called cyber monday. so, some of the best deals may be after this evening. if you're looking for electronics, especially, wait and make sure you're getting the best discount. >> do your shopping. you can find large tvs for a lot cheaper than they used to be, right? >> the big screen tvs, the tablets, the digital cameras are deeply discounted because everyone has one now. so, there is no more novelty to it. so, just wait. don't panic because you think this store may have the best deal. down the road, if the stock is still up around a week from now, you may still get a better deal. >> you're also talking about don't think electronically.
6:07 am

6:13 am
crowd? because you never know when you're at a party, somebody will say what do you do? it is a good idea to have that prepared because you never know what you might meet. >> that could lead to maybe a connection that could turn into a job or some sort of -- maybe current improvement to your current company, wherever you are. >> you should be networking all the time, even at holiday events. you don't want to be obnoxious and put your resume in somebody's face. figure out who will be there, who you want to know, how you're going to connect with them, what you're going to tell them and follow up later. that can help you down the road. >> in addition to having plenty of business experience, you have some acting experience as well. so, does that mean you should actually rehearse this little vignette for yourself? >> yes, rehearsal is important. actors spend hundreds of hours rehearsing plays or a 30-second commercial will take eight hours to shoot. preparation, forethought is key. >> now, how long should something like this be? if somebody says that's a great
6:14 am
idea, should you have something where you go on ad nauseam for five or six minutes? what do you think as far as the length? >> we've all been stuck talking about it. >> you don't want to be that guy. >> you should be merciful. >> elevator speech about how long it takes to ride an elevator. washington, it is about 10 or 11 floors. >> maybe 30, 45 seconds, just a few sentences to capture who you are and something that will be memorable. >> it is not really memorization of your resume saying i went to here and an mba here, it is something more compelling. >> yeah, what you do, who you help. how you stand out in the market place in your particular field. yeah. you shouldn't be reciting i was this and i was that and titles and names. people tune out that stuff. >> get something compelling and sell it. >> yes. >> a real story. yes, sell it. just like an actor would. put emotion and enthusiasm and energy behind the words. >> the book is act like you mean business.

definitely need it. especially when the sun gets low in the sky later on in the day. we'll see also a pretty great weekend ahead. both saturday and sunday looking pretty good before the next system comes our way. i'll give you those details and the seven-day forecast. here's what's driving our weather right now. we're talking about high pressure. it is dominating the forecast. sitting right through the eastern seaboard but it is pushing its way toward the east. right now, it is keeping the clouds away from us. also keeping our temperatures slightly above average. we normally see about 55 degrees this time of year. most of us will make it into the lower 60s. we're going to open the door for more cloud cover and some rain chances in the extended forecast. right now though, it is the chilly temperature that you need to plan for as you're stepping out the door. what you need to know is reagan national is still dropping down to 39 degrees. we're looking at the lower 30s in most of the regions off toward our west and even the entire seaboard feels a couple of degrees colder because of that wind chill factor that we have working with us. so, right now, 39 as i
6:17 am
mentioned at reagan national. the forecast for the next two days is looking pretty good. not much to talk about with our future cast forecast model. i'll set it forward from 5:00 hour. even by late this afternoon, plenty of sunshine. overnight tonight, clear and calm. that is the clouds will try to move on in from the west. we won't see too much in the way of cloud cover on saturday. that changes, however on sunday. by sunday, midday and late day, cloud cover takes over with earnest and i'm even tracking rain opportunities with this next front that's going move on through. future cast brings it in around 8:00 in the morning. we start to see just a few isolated sprinkles moving on through. i think most of the rain will hold off until later in the day. even the overnight hours on sunday into monday. monday is the day to watch the seven-day forecast. so, here we have our forecast for today. middle range 60s for most. the next three days look fantastic. 62 degrees both saturday and sunday. the extended seven-day forecast

6:42 am
day, the sunshine kicks in. that takes our day planner out of the current 30s and in through the 40s by even 9:00, things will start to improve. later on this afternoon, say about noontime to 1:00 p.m., most of us should move out of the 50s and into the 60s. we should settle into the 60s across the board. tonight will be another one of the clear, calm nights once again. we're used to this routine this time of year. that means it will drop back down into the 50s by the 5:00 hour. be prepared for that if you're going to be out and about a little bit later today. here's how we're going to break down for you in the short term. 9:00 is about 45 degrees. most of us will struggle to get out of those 30s for at least the next hour or so. but then things will start to improve by 11:00 and in toward noontime as i mentioned, things are looking pretty good into the afternoon. we're going to continue this trend in the first half of our seven-day forecast and then i'll talk about some more rain opportunities that will move on
6:43 am
in. here are your weather headlines. again, that chilly start this morning. you want to be prepared for. we're talking about 30s and 40s for most of us. but then by midday and late day, it should wrap up to be a pretty good afternoon. dry conditions will continue today, tomorrow and even a lot of sunshine both today and tomorrow. grab your sunglasses if you're heading out. but then in the extended forecast, say about sunday afternoon, we'll notice some cloud cover move on in but the temperatures this weekend are quite a treat. normally 55 degrees this time of the year. here's satellite and radar. we're dealing with some high pressure. that's keeping us calm and in the clear. slowly though as the pressure system starts to move on off toward the east coast, we're going to bring in a little bit more cloud cover by late in the day sunday and then the temperatures for today in the cool 30s to start and feeling a little bit colder than that if you're just stepping out this morning. here is the big picture. our future cast, forecast model, quiet for at least the
6:44 am
next 24 hours or so. things will start to change for us into the afternoon. little bit of cloud cover sneaks in. time stamp for saturday afternoon. but it is on sunday if you're going to be out late in the day. sunday night into monday could prove to be a fairly rainy day. forecast today, will take us to 64 at reagan national. warmer down toward the south and west. slightly cooler north and east. in all, the next three days look fantastic. sunshine to go around. temperatures in the 60s. seven-day forecast features that change. we slide back into the 50s by monday and tuesday with rain opportunities and then the 40s to end the week. beverly? >> olga, right now, as far as the interstates are concerned, lighter volume. i know it is going to get busier back to and through town, especially the 95 corridor and i-68, i-70. beltway at the wilson bridge, headlights toward you. inner loop coming through
