it's a quick-moving front but is expected to be through our area later on this afternoon. right now we're going to be enjoying dry conditions. but later on today we expect the system to push on through, bringing us the potential for rain, some light showers, some heavy rain, possibly even some thunderstorm activity as we get closer to the evening hours with that system. so we'll start out dry, but then you see across the board here we do have the shower activity later on, just about everywhere, and the potential for some embedded thunderstorms. temperatures getting up to mainly lower to mid 70s for high temps. rosemary. thank you, karen. new information on breaking news we first told you about last night at 11:00. a man is charged this morning in connection with throwing railroad spikes off a philadelphia overpass. the spikes hit some cars, causing damage and some injuries. take a look at this photo. it shows one of the railroad spikes lodged in a windshield.
we learned the spikes damaged four cars on university avenue last night. a man who had glass in his eye refused medical treatment. police described what they found at the scene. >> approximately eight railroad spikes found on the street here as a result of the investigation. one inside the car that it was impaled in, they were about eight inches in length and they are iron, so they're very heavy. looking at it coming from about four stories up. >> police arrested a man in his 20s. he is charged with aggravated salt and other related crimes. new from overnight. philadelphia police are investigating a stabbing. a man attacked another man at west erie avenue. the attacker ran away. the victim is in stable condition with a stab wound to the neck. we're told the injury is not life-threatening. in nicetown three men being

>> reporter: these are automatic license plate readers, a technology some police reports have shown off for us in the past. they instantly photograph your tag and record an exact location and time you were there. this photo taken this week shows an unmarked police suv with the alpr mounted on the top. on the back rear window a logo for google maps. >> there should be no reason to pretend to be something if what you're doing is not shady. molly says the department is jeopardizing police-community relations. >> reporter: the people who posted the photos say the car was posted here on 13th street underneath the convention center. we called police headquarters but public affairs did not respond to questions on the phone, instead sending a
statement to nbc10 saying in part placing a decal on the vehicle was not approved by any chain of command. the department has ordered the removal of the logos. >> there shouldn't be such a disconnect between what the officers are doing on the street and what the commissioner knows about what is going on. >> reporter: alprs have gotten results but now people are tweeting about a terrible disguise. opponents want to know if other things are being hidden when it comes to this technology. in center city, drew smith. nbc10 news. big events are happening in pennsylvania, new jersey and delaware. let's start on the schuylkill river. thousands of athletes from as far away as california and canada are in philadelphia for the event, the largest college rowing competition in north
america. the schedule has been compressed to get the action in before the stormy weather moves in later today. race weekend at dover international speedway today. yesterday fans watched practice at the kent county oval. they got an up-close look in the garage area and noticed the jet dry trucks that helped to sop up rain water from the tracks. fans are hoping the trucks won't be needed today or tomorrow. >> it's never been rained out in 12 years. it's been -- we have had rain, but we've never been rained out. >> here with friends, family, everybody. so you're always going to come regardless of the weather. you don't change your plans. you just come. >> the highlight of race weekend at dover comes tomorrow with the nascar aaa 400. you can set your sights this weekend on the power in the pines air show at joint base mcguire-disk-lake hurst. the army's premier parachute
team will perform stunts and acrobatics. the gates open at 9:00 in the morning today and tomorrow. it was a bigger shock when we learned we were the only ticket holder. >> you'll meet the trenton family that's sharing the powerball jackpot and you'll hear what they plan to do with all that money. and later -- if your hair feels somehow like it's not good, you don't feel very confident. >> diseases and disorders that lead to hair loss can be devastating. but new 3d printing technology has led to a better solution for patients like the woman you just heard from. her story is still ahead.
start our saturday. we do have some chilly temperatures out there right now, but we will be warming up. 55 in philadelphia right now. we have a few clouds around out in the p.a. burbs. 52 in new jersey. we have some foggy conditions. you can see in the live picture here in the lehigh valley. delaware not doing too badly. a few clouds around. 53 degrees. we're looking for temperatures to bump up into the lower 70s to mid 70s in and around the delaware valley. radar has us dry right now. as we pull back, you can see a pretty large area of precipitation, and this is a cold front that will be heading west to east through our area later on today. after 1:00. so we're going to start out on a dry note. we're going to have bright sunshine this morning, and it's really going to look pretty nice. but then, with the approach of this front later on today, we expect clouds to be rolling in midday, clouds will thicken, and then we want to have the umbrellas handy later on this afternoon as this system gets closer because we do expect rain
and possibly some embedded thunderstorms rolling through the area later on today. so that's why, when you look at the board, you see just about every neighborhood expecting the potential for some storms moving through later on today. and some of that rain could be heavy depending on just where you are. out in the burbs, malvern looking for a high temperature of 72. lehigh valley, 72. lower 70s for the most part. a little cooler in wildwood. 70 degrees with clouds. as i said, it's the tale of two weather systems. dry this morning with rain later on today. >> thanks, karen. imagine if a co-worker of yours turned into an instant multimillionaire. karen, i'm talking about you, right? >> i would like that! it's the case for employees at a mercer county company. you are looking at steve smith,
a member of the family who will take a lump sum of this week's $430 million lottery prize. the insignia is from universal display corporation in trenton. we tracked down his now former boss who told us smith smiled at him the other day and said he had to resign. >> we love steve. we offered, he could stay. we told him he could stay but he is moving on to greener pastures. >> abramson tells us steve smith and his family winning the lottery is proof that good things can happen to good people. he has three other girlfriends. >> what's your name again? >> john miller. >> is it trump or not? that's the question, after that recording was made public. next, more on the donald. reporting that he once posed as his own publicist.
supporters of brazil's president are protesting her impeachment. thousands of people attended a rally last night in rio de janeiro. they're upset that lawmakers have suspended president dilma rousseff as part of a corruption scandal. many in the crowd called the interim government illegitimate and promised more protests. to our decision 2016 contest. presumptive republican presidential nominee donald trump is denying he once posed as his own publicist. the republican candidate responded after audio recordings from 1991 were made public this week. take a listen for yourself. >> what's your name again? >> john miller. >> what is your position? >> i am sort of handling p.r. >> the "washington post" released that audio. in it a voice which some believe sounds like trump told an interviewer about the real estate magnate's dating life. the reporter from "people" magazine who conducted the interview said it's no doubt in her mind that trump was posing
as his own publicist. yesterday trump denied it on the "today" show. >> is it you? >> no, i don't think -- i don't know anything about it. i have many, many people that are trying to imitate my voice. and you can imagine that. this sounds like one of the many scams. it doesn't sound like me. >> we also know that in a 1990 court case trump testified under oath that he did use a fake name on occasion. former president bill clinton campaigned for his wife in new jersey yesterday. he spoke at a rally and talked about hillary clinton's plans to make college affordable and cut student debt. the former president also made a stop in mercer county. busy day in the garden state. new jersey voters will head to the polls for their primary on june 7th. meantime, bernie sanders was on the stump in bismarck, north dakota. that state holds a presidential caucus also on june 7th. sanders told supporters that he
wants to arrive at the democratic national convention here in philadelphia with more pledge delegates than hillary clinton. sanders only has a slim chance to do that. at the white house last night president obama hosted a state dinner for the leaders of sweden, iceland, finland, denmark and norway. the dinner capped off a summit on security and economic issues. the president called the nordic nations one of the america's most valuable partners. president obama also plans to honor a fallen philadelphia police officer monday at the white house. the president will posthumously award sergeant robert wilson iii the public safety officer medal of valor. wilson was shot and killed during a robbery at a north philadelphia gamestop store last year. the sergeant's family is expected to attend the ceremony in washington. now your nbc10 first alert weather. >> we'll go ahead and bring you your neighborhood forecast this saturday morning. temperatures not doing too badly. we are looking at mainly clear

really starts to crank up and move on through. so we do anticipate the system just to really be sitting over us later on in the day. but we could have some popup showers out front of a cold front which would be earlier afternoon. future cast has us at about 6:30. you can see the orange and yellow. those are heavy cells embedded there. we could have a thunderstorm with this system. it is quick-moving. there is the good news. any heavy downpours that come out of that system later on this evening shouldn't really hang around and cause flooding problems simply because the system is moving so quickly. by sunday morning colder air funneling in. yes, what is this white on the map here in western pennsylvania? could it be flurry activity? we'll see, but it will be very, very cold through the overnight hours, especially northwest -- northwestern pennsylvania. but some scattered showers up here to the north later on for
sunday. so we should stay dry for sunday, but as we get closer to sunday evening there is potential there for the possibility of a scattered shower, north of philadelphia. everybody else should stay dry sunday through monday. all right. our ten-day outlook takes us through. we are looking for a high of 73 today in philadelphia. tomorrow, look at our temperature drop. that's a high temperature of only 61. we're in the 40s for an overnight low. we stay cool, but then begin to moderate upward temperature-wise as we move through monday, tuesday, wednesday. by the time we get to thursday we're above our average high temperature this time of year at 78 degrees. but you see that we are still in an unsettled weather pattern. so you want to hang onto the umbrellas through the next work week. the nbc10 first alert weather team will join the phillies for our second annual weather education day next week. meteorologist glenn "hurricane" schwartz, bill henley, sheena
