and a light wind, we're looking for mid-70s for an overnight low, boy, dangerous heat. that becomes our weather story once again for tomorrow. current temperatures on the sticky side here in philadelphia. 80 degrees, it's still 82 in allentown, as those rain cells moved through, pockets of rain brought in dryer air. it's not feeling great out there, still quite humid, tomorrow we'll have a little bit less humidity, but then we really crank up the heat. i'll be back with more in a bit. power crews are working to restore power to a lot of customers tonight. ac electric says more than 2500 people are in the dark. the majority of whom are in camden county. peco telling us about 1300 customers are still waiting for power to be restored. firefighters came to the rescue of a woman who got draped after heavy winds toppled this

fargo center monday. a battle seems to be brewing between clinton clinton and sanders on how impartial the democratic primary really was. wikile wikileaks released documents that show democratic party officials were actively trying to hurt sanders campaign and actively helping clintons. he said this could make it harder to promote unity at the dnc. in one of the e-mails a top dnc official seems to want to use sanders religious beliefs against him. brad marshall wrote the democratic party should get someone to ask if sanders believed in god. saying he had skated on saying he was of jewish heritage. marshall apologized on facebook, saying i deeply regret that my sensitive, emotional e-mails would cause
embarrassment to the dnc. donald trump reacted on the controversy on twitter today saying, leaked e-mails of dnc show plans to destroy bernie sanders, mocked his heritage and much more. really vicious, rigged. and, of course, bernie sanders is set to speak at the dnc on monday. tonight his supporters reacted to the news of the leak of those 20,000 e-mails. >> to be honest, i wasn't surprised, this had election has been rigged against bernie sanders. the dnc have not been supporting him. >> sanders supporters plan to hold protests in philadelphia over the next several days. the official 2016 democratic ticket debuted today in miami, florida. hillary clinton introduced virginia senator tim kaine as
her running mate. it was their first appearance together. clinton called kaine a progressive with a backbone of steel who likes to get things done. >> he is qualified to step into this job and lead on day one. >> senator kaine previously served as virginia's governor and before that, he was the mayor of richmond. >> we're going to make history in philadelphia by electing and nominating the first woman of the united states. philadelphia is ready to shine in the international spotlight with just two days left until the start of the dnc. tonight the secret service is inside the wells fargo center doing a final security sweep as protesters are preparing their demonstrations outside. nbc10's andrea klein thomas takes us inside their protest training tonight. >> if i go any further i'm not
going to be breaking any rule. >> reporter: protesters learned how to de-escalate a possible confrontation. >> you get three warnings before the police arrest you. >> the group is nonpartisan. but participants are preparing to take to the streets for bernie sanders. >> i feel that bernie is probably the best choice we have to be able to achieve the goal of making this country better. >> reporter: many bernie sanders supporters packed the arch street building for the education. >> it's an opportunity for the people to say ah, these are the things we care about. climate change, racial justice, many out of politics. >> reporter: damian barber are sanders delegates from texas. >> that's why this campaign was so much more than one man. those people, that movement is going to continue. >> reporter: with the city of
