opinions. >> reporter: it's rolling the dice. there is a chance they could get a franchise quarterback out of this potentially, but there's no guarantee. they're giving up a lot. we asked the fans at the chicky & pete's what they thought. a lot of them worry the team is giving up just too much. >> there will be some unique opportunities. >> reporter: fast reaction from fans watching the news at the bar. a mix of cautious optimism -- >> i think they need to change. >> reporter: -- and some downright frustration and fear. >> they're sacrificing too much. they're back to the old moves, chip kelly. >> reporter: the eagles will get the second overall pick, but they'll have to sell off future prospects. it's all reminding some fans of 1999 when the birds drafted a young quarterback named donovan mcnabb to much skepticism. >> the people were very unhappy. i remember watching that and thinking, hey, welcome to philadelphia. >> reporter: some fans even booed the future mvp, but it all paid off with a trip to the
super bowl. >> great foundation off of that risky move there. >> reporter: the eagles insist this risk is the right call. >> we decided that moving up to the second pick was the right move for our franchise. >> reporter: they'll either draft carson wentz, a prospect from north dakota, or jared goff who played college ball at california. >> i don't think this is a great move for the eagles. i think they should be going for linemen to protect the quarterback. >> reporter: you know, all of this comes just a year after the birds made another huge trade to acquire sam bradford. he's supposed to be the starter but a lot of questions from fans on what his role should be if the birds do get another quarterback. randy gyllenhaal. >> nbc 10 is your official eagles station. watch our draft day special next week. exclusive interviews with the team's new decisionmakers, live guests and analysis from

what congressman sestak did. sestak was one of only eight democrats to join republicans to allow ceos of bailed out banks to pay themselves unlimited bonuses using bailout money. an "outrage," according to newspapers. katie mcginty- tough on wall street ceos, a fighter for pay equity for women. praised by former gov. ed rendell, "she'll stand strong for working families." katie: i'm katie mcginty and i approve this message.

tomorrow. he has events planned in reading and scranton. clinton there in our live picture from north philadelphia also with former u.s. attorney general eric holder. the republican candidates will also descend on pennsylvania this week. >> here is jim schultz. most polls show trump with a pretty big lead in pennsylvania. do you think the other candidates can make it a real race? >> he has a pretty big lead in pennsylvania. i don't think the other candidates will make it a big race. last night both candidates had a monster evening. big wins. clinton and trump. trump comes into pennsylvania a friendly state and the other northeastern states with tremendous momentum. clinton comes into pennsylvania, friendly state with big momentum and a lot more delegates. i don't think there's any chance you're going to see folks dropping out of the race on either side. i think sanders is going to be there to continue to sustain his quest to have socialism at the seat at the table in the democrat party.
and you'll see ted cruz and john kasich trying to steal the nomination at the convention, but the chances of getting the delegates -- the delegate math is impossible for those two. trump is clearly the front-runner. >> what will this race look like after next tuesday? do you see anyone dropping out? >> i don't see anyone dropping out of this race. like i said, i take cruz and kasich are in it. they're trying to demand that one another drop out of race, but the truth be told, neither of them can mathematically get to the number of delegates. but the only way they can do it is steal it away. >> looking ahead here, pennsylvania known as a swing state. the general election, do you see republicans or democrats having the advantage? >> pennsylvania is a swing state, but it's really been a swing state for everything but the presidency since 1998. republicans, the last time republicans won at the top of the ticket for president was 1988, and they haven't won since. there's a million more voter
registration advantage here in pennsylvania. what i do think is that hillary clinton and donald trump, if the table's set for those two candidates, donald trump is going toy about able to garner the support of a lot of blue collar working class families and he's going to make it a race here for hillary clinton and she's going to have to spend some money here in order to win the election. >> jim schultz, we'll keeping you busy. >> take care. we'll take a right-hand turn now and bring you first alert neighborhood weather, a beautiful day outside. it sure was. nbc 10 in center city where we found philadelphia's finest walking on filbert street. it looked like they enjoyed the sunshine and spring weather. >> fishing season is here. nbc 10 also at riverfront park. this is norristown, montgomery county. but the fish weren't really biting today. sheena parveen has the first alert forecast. still plenty of time left. >> still plenty of time. you can see on the video we just showed you the water like glass.

the day thursday we'll be seeing increasing clouds. then as we go into friday morning into the afternoon. we'll see more rain approaching from the west. there's friday, 1:00 p.m. we could also be seeing showers move in in the afternoon. 6:00 p.m. seeing some showers, possibly thunderstorms as well. we'll be tracking that very closely even lasting into friday evening. now as far as the pollen is concerned, today its high and it's going to stay high. take a live look outside. nice dry conditions outside. that's not thelping the pollen t all. citizens bank park clear skies. this will keep that pollen up tomorrow as well. so today high pollen levels. that's what happens when we have nice weather. you get the high pollen this time of year, but come friday, with those showers moving in, it will start to drop pollen levels a little bit. but they're not going to be incredibly low. they're still going to be high as we go through the weekend. either way enjoy the weather, rain friday. that forecast coming up, too. >> much needed rain.
>> much needed rain finally we're getting it, but it doesn't look like it will linger over the weekend. >> good. >> more showers hopefully mean may flowers. hillary clinton at one event in philadelphia. now here's the crowd waiting to get into her next event. skyforce 10 is live over the fillmore in fishtown where clinton will speak later tonight. you can watch that event and the one she's holding right now that are streaming live on the nbc 10 app. a little child with big dreams.

who testified she was drunk proved the case. >> she's obviously very upset. she's in tears. she's crying. and she's upset because she knows what happened that night, and you know, i think the conviction doesn't bother her as much as the judge not believing her. >> i had her as a teacher myself. i thought she was amazing. everyone loved her. wanted to have her as a teacher. >> reporter: word traveled quickly to philly's little flower catholic high school where students are praying sister kim can put this ordeal in the rearview mirror. >> i hope she can come back. everybody here will welcome her. >> reporter: miller got in the passenger seat after paying $650 in fines, a 90-day license suspension begins now. attorney jeff lindy has 20 days but doesn't think they'll appeal. he has to handle what they call a catch 22. >> sister kim in new jersey doesn't have a criminal record

i thought today how bad could it be driving over there. so i did it. it was so bad i decided to go up to a different bridge just to avoid the gridlock coming back. right now the delaware memorial bridge is not a great way to get from new jersey to delaware. >> is there an accident? >> reporter: most drivers stuck in the backup didn't know why it was backed up. but it sure was bad. >> i've never seen something like that. i would call it a parking lot. >> reporter: those who weren't at the full stop were crawling. >> maybe a mile and a half in an hour. >> reporter: her hopefully future employer was cool about it. no, they knew it already. i sat in traffic already for an hour after the toll bridge. and i'm going home. i'm going to have to reschedule. >> reporter: inspectors working on one damaged vertical suspension cable found problems with two other cables. that meant they immediately had to reduce the weight on the bridge by closing all but one lane. >> hardly unfortunate part about
it is that the traffic has to go down to one lane. we're very confident of the fact that the weekend's coming, we need to address this issue. >> reporter: convenience is now taking a backseat to safety. drivers probably now wish they had checked google maps before they left home. they would have seen a ton of red high traffic lines even flowing back over the on ramps and side streets. they would have then know to take the commodore perry bridge, too late for the family heading down to north carolina. >> we might not get there any time this century. you're talking about two to three-hour delays because that's what it looks like right now. >> reporter: so as you come back live, you're looking live at the slow moving single-file line coming from new jersey into delaware. that is after the construction site. so the fluid situation. i'm told the work will continue for the next several days, but you should consider yourself warned. if you had family or friends north of here and they'll come down through the area, you might want to warn them to try the walt whitman or the commodore
perry. nowhere near the problems. i'm glad i didn't try to come back over this bridge right here. happily on the smooth sailing side of the bridge, tim furlong, nbc 10 news. the brandywine school district in chester county has another referendum on the books. they want residents to know about. that measure would increase taxes. if it doesn't pass, the school district faces $8 million in cuts. 3 million of those cuts would include teachers, counselors and librarians. some after-school programs would also have to go. the district is holding four meetings to help residents understand that measure. the first is being held tomorrow night. some local high school seniors just got a big boost to help whip their future careers into shape hot out of the oven, scholarships worth between 100,

this is all because of weather education day happening. there you see our makeup artist christina touching him up a little bit. he was able to get kind of treated as though he were on tv all the time doing weather. he was good pointing at the wall. he turned his back to the camera a few times so i did have to correct him. i think he did pretty good. we put him in front of the green scene, but then he disappeared because he was green. weather education day may 18th citizens bank park. we'll have a lot of students there. the weather team will be out there. we'll be doing science experiments. tell your teachers to sign up, kids, weather education day may 18th. we'll talk about that more as we get closer. don't forget the seven-day forecast always scrolling at the bottom of the screen. so you'll never miss it no matter what area you're in in pennsylvania, new jersey or delaware and our neighborhood temperatures all looking at completely clear skies. plenty of sunshine. 63 in south jersey, 68 in delaware, 70 degrees in
philadelphia and our suburbs through pennsylvania mostly in the mid-60s. as we go over the next 12 hours, philadelphia by 10:00 p.m. dropping to 53 degrees and by early tomorrow morning and if you're in trenton, temperatures will be in the low 40s. wilmington about the mid-40s by the time you wake up and walk outside. so another really nice start to the day. and it's going to feel nice as we go through the afternoon. a little bit warmer than today. here's a look at your neighborhood weather. let's take a look at the pennsylvania sburns right now. as we zoom into chester county, temperatures mostly upper 60s here. west bradford township coming in a 66. 70 degrees in north wales. elroy coming in at 68 degrees. doyles town, 69. new hope at 68. so really comfortable day today. but we do actually have some rain on the way. we've been dry for quite a while
now. we finally have some rain. it's all in the middle of the country. as we zoom in here, you see the showers and thunderstorm. this is allnówk coming our direction. friday is the day we're expecting rain in the area. so the weather story finally some rain relief coming. it will start to drop the pollen levels a little bit. but if you have allergies, you are still going to notice it. as we go to thursday, there you see the rain getting closer. we'll see clouds getting closer, too. clouds increasing as we go through the day on thursday. this is thursday 9:00 p.m. then more clouds moving in and the rain getting into parts of western p.a., but it won't be here till friday. friday around lunchtime, that's the time we can see maybe some thunderstorms north and west of philadelphia. i don't think it will be a huge thunderstorm outbreak, but we'll have rain with the potential for some storms, 5:00 p.m., that's a better chance of thunderstorms. maybe even moving through the philadelphia area. then by 11:00, we should see a lot of it slide into new jersey and delaware. so at least we have some rain
coming because we do need the rain. there you see it friday, the next five days in philadelphia, tomorrow, 75 degrees, mostly sunny. friday 80 degrees. warm with some thunderstorms. saturday in philadelphia we'll be clearing out of the rain around 70. sunday looks good around 70, but if you're in south jersey, along the shore or in delaware, the rain from friday looks to be lingering into your saturday. temperatures upper 60s. a little bit cooler. but we go to sunday and we're clearing out nicely. beautiful evening shot for the area. here is a look at boathouse row. so you look at the water there on the schuylkill river. it's not moving much. looks like glass. we have the light winds out there. beautiful skies. that's why the pollen levels are so high. once the rain gets here, it will help to lower them a little bit. but it will still be high. over the weekend, those levels will still shoot back up. >> the phillie phanatic.
>> i want to see him give a forecast. he'll be fantastic. >> he looked great doing it. he really did. he was very comfortable. he's fine so whenever he comes in here we have a lot of fun with him. weather education day may 18th citizens bank park. a lot of fun out there. it's win or go home for the flyers tonight. >> and fans have a lot to say after the eagles take a big gamble before the draft. john clark is following it all for us. yeah, this is a huge move. the eagles trading up to get the second pick in the draft and the flyers it's do or die tonight. we'll talk about it coming up next.

"represents the next generation of progressive leadership". democrat josh shapiro an attorney general...for us a big move for the philadelphia eagles that could mold the future of the franchise. the eagles moved up. they're now the second overall pick in next week's draft, but they had to give away several picks to do it. the team has its sights set on a quarterback to lead them into the future. >> john clark joins us from the wells fargo center. there's a big game there tonight, but the eagles making big news today as well. >> yeah, the eagles have stolen the front page news here moving up to number two and they are going to get a quarterback. basically they want to find a franchise quarterback like they had with donovan mcnabb. that's the last time they drafted a quarterback in first round. he went number two in 1999. take a look at the quarterbacks that the eagles will get. it will either be jared goff or, of course, carson wentz.
so a lot of people think the rams are going to take jared goff at number one and carson wentz from north dakota state will be your eagles quarterback at number two. now, howie roseman says they're absolutely taking a quarterback. sam bradford is still the starter. so you can look for sam bradford to probably be the starter for this coming season and maybe the next one depending on how the quarterback plays. but they want to have the opportunity for this young quarterback to come in there and learn for the first year or two so they don't have to be thrown into the fire. and that's worked before with guys like tom brady and aaron rodgers. >> let's get back to the flyers. you're live there at the wells fargo center. do or die for them tonight. >> yeah, this is absolutely it. they have to win or they're going to be eliminated. they've made a couple changes tonight. michal neuvirth will be in goal. he's only played once over the last month. he was hurt. they're not saying steve mason is the problem. they're saying this is a chance
to wake everybody up. they're trying to get claude giroux in. jake voracek to the second line. they need to change things up to get a spark to stay alive in the series against the best team in the nhl, the capitals. i'm john clark live at the wells fargo center. we'll see you again at 6:20. big night, john. coming up next at 6:00, stopping the zika virus from ever reaching the jersey shore. this is a way that we'll find out if the virus has, in fact, gotten into those mosquitoes. up next, a firsthand look at the efforts under way to keep the jersey shore safe this summer. plus -- >> you can always have a balance between the individual's rights and public safety. >> questions answered after the shooting of a philadelphia police officer. why was the accused shooter released just days earlier on another charge? nbc 10 asks the d.a. about the events that allowed the suspect
