5:05 pm
higher humidity, we do expect some of those to be the hottest areas, or the hottest feels-like areas over the next several days. currently we're dry on the radar, so no rain relief right now. what we're watching for possibly later on this evening is that cluster of storms off to the west. that could be moving into the lehigh valley, maybe the poconos later on tonight. we'll look at the timing of that and how hot it will be over the next several days and over the weekend, straight ahead. i'm jacqueline london live in rio de janeiro, brazil, coming to you from a very wet olympic park. the tennis stadium that you see behind me was cleared out earlier today because of all the rain we had here in rio. so much rain, that tennis was delayed indefinitely. from gymnastics to swimming, they are racking up the gold

5:07 pm
let's talk some politics now. you may have already made your decision about which presidential candidate to vote for, but what about everybody else? >> tonight we have a look at how voters in pennsylvania are split between two presidential candidates. this is a breakdown here of the nbc news "wall street journal" poll. the dark blue area in the bottom right-hand corner, that little spot is philadelphia. heavily favors hillary clinton. the counties in light blue are also laeping towards clinton. >> voters in those red areas support trump. but the counties in purple are the ones we're really watching. voters there are split right down the middle and could make the difference in november. the purple area. >> presidential hopeful donald trump refused to back down over a controversial comment he made yesterday. aimed at his rival. >> that's right. today trump told fox news that the media is responsible for the backlash. it all started yesterday when trump told people at his campaign rally that gun owners may have a way to stop hillary
5:08 pm
clinton from becoming president. trump later insisted he was talking only about their right to vote. clinton fired back at a campaign rally today saying america cannot tolerate this kind of politics. >> words matter, my friends. yesterday we witnessed the latest in a long line of casual comments from donald trump that crossed the line. >> meanwhile, hillary clinton has her own crisis brewing today. a new e-mail release suggests contributors got special treatment by the state department. we want to turn to breaking news happening right now out of new york city. someone is climbing the outside of trump tower. there's a live picture of it. police haven't said exactly why this person is climbing the building. it's home, of course, to donald trump's campaign headquarters. he also happens to live there. nbc news reached out to a campaign spokesperson who didn't
5:09 pm

5:10 pm
government wants him turned over once local charges are resolved. senator pat toomey said i.c.e. has asked the same thing before and he was released instead. and is now accused of the disturbing crime. the case against a 45-year-old honduran national accused of raping a child is pitting pennsylvania's republican senator against philadelphia's so-called sanctuary city policy. >> i have called on mayor kenny to end this policy. >> reporter: kenny reinstated to advocates this year, but now senator pat toomey is highlighting a case where i.c.e. officials say philadelphia failed to honor a detainer on ramone achoa when he was in custody last year, releasing him. he was arrested on child rape charges in july. >> this is the most heinous crimes to commit, committed against a young child. it should not have been possible. and it would not have been
5:11 pm
possible but for the fact that philadelphia is a sanctuary city. >> reporter: a spokeswoman for mayor kenny said he stands by the city's policy on cooperation with i.c.e. and that, quote, the federal government had full authority to obtain an arrest warrant for this deportation offense in 2014. if they had done so, the individual would have been released into their custody without any interference from the city. toomey also pointed to former mayor nutter's change to the policy at the end of his term saying it's not a partisan issue. >> folks, this is not about immigration. it's not about the politics of immigrati immigration. it's about public safety, about common sense, about all of our security. >> toomey criticized his opponent, katie mcginty, not to end this policy, too. i reached out to her campaign and they told me she has been, quote, clear that she wants federal and local law enforcement to work together. they accused him of copying the

5:16 pm
anything the national weather service even has. it's the first of its kind in the world. check this out. we've got cameras all over this thing. the front, on the passenger side, and then on top a 360-degree camera so we can show you the storm and warn you before anyone else. the storm moves in, so will nbc 10. when you see storm ranger in your neighborhood, you should feel safer. it's the newest tool in sheena parveen's arsenal. >> we can take it to any storm in the area to get a perfect look at that storm, that some stationary radars are going to miss. >> mobile radar, nowhere else in the world. a clearer forecast and a clearer view of the most dangerous weather events. multiple cameras, including this 360-degree camera. the eagle eye. every angle uncovered, so you

5:18 pm
raindrop, and this is a hailstone. now, old school radar would just take a horizontal sweep. if you look at that, that would mean they were the exact same size when obviously that's not the case. with our dual pole radar, we're now going to have a horizontal sweep to tell us the width as well as vertical sweep. we'll know have a 2-d view of what's falling in the sky around you. we're going to have that truck in your neighborhood down at the ground. that means we're going to be able to determine if we're seeing rain, snow, or hail right near your neighborhood where it matters most as it's falling to the surface. that's something that only we can say at nbc 10. back to you. >> yeah, krystal, it will be so useful when we get it close to storms and we have storms actually moving into the area. it will give us a more detailed look, and that is something that no other station has. so we will certainly provide the
5:19 pm
specifics of those storms. we do have some heading our way, but also a heat wave. this is a live look at rehoboth beach right now. it is hot across the area, especially if you are in delaware at the moment. and through the next several days feeling like triple digits. if you look at the seven-day at the bottom of your screen, you see we have a lot of 90-degree temperatures in a row, and that, in fact, is a heat wave for the area. we do expect a heat wave to be upon us, especially starting with today. temperatures will continue to be in the 90s as we go into the next several days. so, yes, we have a heat wave in the forecast. temperatures will be staying in the 90s from today on out right now. we're already in the 90s across a big portion of the area. and with the humidity on top of that, it's actually going to feel like triple-digit heat. coming up, we'll talk more about the heat wave in the forecast, and also we'll talk about your shore cast coming up. we'll look at the storms ahead as well as your weekend forecast. that's all straight ahead. >> we'll see you shortly.

it's a pretty simple question: is pat toomey's agenda your agenda? toomey voted seven times to defund planned parenthood. he even tried to shut down the federal government in order to eliminate funding for planned parenthood. and toomey's against a woman's right to choose and supports overturning roe v. wade which would allow states to criminalize abortion. pat toomey: he's focused on his own agenda, not us. majority forward is responsible for the content of this advertising.
