years old. he's the oldest guy. he's going after usain bolt, he's always wanted to beat him. he had a four-year ban from doping. he's turned to the lord. he's old, but fast. and this is his last chance to do it. all eyes on him. katie katie ledecky is maybe the greatest swimmer in swimming history. she won a goal at 15 in london. now she's going to win a huge pile of them. she beat, in the 1500 long distance, the next closest person is 13 seconds behind her. she is so dominant. women's soccer. how great is women's soccer at the olympics? >> you're talking to a former soccer player, so i'm partial to that. but all-around, great stories coming out of the olympics. and you know, you can't beat it. >> huge personalities and just a lot of fun. and some great badminton, by the way, if you want to -- we have some very strong badminton players coming. i can't wait. >> awesome. well, billy bush, thanks so much for joining us this morning.
11:48 am
we wish you all the best on your new venture with the "today" show. >> katy, thank you so much. hope to see you down there. there's tickets left. >> yeah, i wish i were going, but you know what, nbc 10's jacqueline london is already in rio and will be your all-access guide to the summer games. she's racking the dozens of athletes from our area and look for her exclusive reports beginning wednesday, tomorrow, right here on nbc 10 news. and saturday on nbc 10, we are going for the gold. our special profiles to local athletes who you will want to keep an eye on throughout the rio games. catch it saturday night at 7:00, right here on nbc 10. well, get ready for an event that's been called the black sundance. the black star film festival begins later this week in philadelphia. and will bring you filmmakers and movie fans from all around the world to our area. and joining us now is mary holmes, the founder of the festival. and she joins us this morning. thank you so much for joini ini
11:49 am
us. >> thank you for having me. >> tell us what's in store for this year's event? >> this year's festival will be for four days, mostly in university city. we're focusing on migration, which also happens to be -- coincidentally, it's also the hundredth anniversary of the great migration. so we'll be focusing on global migration, but we have the focus focusing on philadelphia. >> so this is the fifth year the fechld has been in philadelphia. how have you seen it grown? >> the festival, we've had really great audiences from the beginning, but they get bigger. so that's one way that we've grown. we're getting filmmakers more -- from more international spaces. so from more places around the world. and we're also finding that people are coming from more places, even within the country. >> well, what do you think philadelphia does to help pull those people to our area? >> well, i think that when you think about our festival, it's focused on independent filmmakers and the city is the city of independence, right?
11:50 am
i think that industry and a lot of the history of documentary filmmakers and other independent artists, it's a nice environment for us. >> have we seen any high-profile movies come out of the festival? >> not exactly. our festival is really alternative to hollywood in a way. most of the films are going to -- if they're lucky, they will get to itunes, they'll go to showtime or hbo. and this festival for us is really cultivating audiences to know to look for them when they're in those spaces. >> so you have a mix of filmmakers coming here, to participate, i would think, and also watch, right, as well as movie fans and actors? >> yes, we do. we have almost every professional producers, designers, art directors, and lots of people who are film scholars and critics. and the filmmakers get to, you know, one of the wonderful things is that people who know each other only in twitter or instagram, they meet ouch other in real life. >> which can be weird. can be really good or really strange, right? thank you, mary holmes, for
11:51 am
being with us. i want to recap so everyone knows. the black star film festival runs thursday, august 4th, through sunday, august 7th. for more information, head to our website, or check out the nbc 10 app. >> thank you. and we'll begin with a look at those temperatures outside of our delaware neighborhoods. glasgow is sitting at 80 right now. odessa at 84. mid-70s for us in wilmington. it's not a bad start to your almost afternoon here, almost to that noon hour. and we are looking at temperatures as we scroll down a little farther to the south, also sitting mostly upper 70s and low 80s here. so felton at 79. dover now at 80 and harrington, rather, at 82 degrees. temperatures, though, not going to warm a ton through your afternoon. areas like delaware should see some of the higher temperatures across our entire viewing zone.
11:52 am
by later today, low 80s, maybe some mid-80s sneaking in throughout. your radar and satellite, clear out there aside from clouds. we have clouds showing up, outdoors, but you're not seeing much of it on satellite, because it's not that thick cloud coverage that's bricking in the rainy weather. and it's looking like today, some spot showers are possible. not as likely to see strong thunderstorms developing across our region. very isolated possibility of that. move this through hour by hour until about 4:00 p.m., you can see it did show those spots of green moving through. i think it's a little heavy with the showers, but spotty activity is possible. potentially a light drizzle over philadelphia. and that does move a little farther to the south and to the west. these cells are going to move from east to west. it starts to clear out by 6:30. as we move into the overnight, you can see start to pull out some of those clouds, as well, getting drier in that forecast, overnight into wednesday. in fact, by wednesday, it's going to look like a lot more sunshine for us. and temperatures are going to start to warm.
11:53 am
so our temperature trend is going to be going up here. 81 today, it's actually below average for us. haven't said that a lot in the last few weeks. then we get to 83 for your wednesday, and we continue cranking those numbers up to about average thursday/friday, and the low 90s for us saturday. saturdays also the next time we're looking at the possibility of some thunderstorms developing out there, aside from the spotty showers later today. and if you see your neighborhood for today, not a lot of those icons showing thunderstorms. lehigh valley, summerton and philadelphia, 79 degrees, and lansdale, the same with that mix today of clouds and sunshine outside. but otherwise, spot showers, they move out about 6:37. overnight, some clouds and then into tomorrow, is when we talk a little more sunny conditions. we'll look more closely at your ten-day on 10. coming up, you can also find it on nbc 10. we'll be right back.
11:54 am
11:55 am
11:56 am
welcome back. nbc 10 first alert meteorologist krystal klei is here with a check of your afternoon forecast. storms, possibly? >> still a possibility of a spot shower or two moving through. doesn't look like we'll see as much thunderstorm development, and temperatures today pretty comfortable. 81 for us. a little humidity, but we see that drying out tomorrow through friday, sunshine, and we do see those 80s, as well. >> not bad for the dead of the summer, right? >> not bad at all.
11:57 am
>> thank you so much. and thank you for watching nbc 10 news at 11:00. i'm katy zachary. for krystal and all of us here at nbc 10, have a great day.
