you can see off to the west some rain that's going to be moving in. it's expected to arrive here a little bit later on tonight. many parts of our area could actually use that rain. >> we need it, right? it could make your morning commute a little slippier. let's get the details from chief meteorologist glenn "hurricane" schwartz. >> and tomorrow may not be the only morning that we have some wet weather issues for the morning rush. and the clouds are already in. you can see that, philadelphia, to new jersey, lehigh valley, delawa delaware, the whole area has clouds and temperature down as a result. 71 in philadelphia and much of new jersey. some places, the lehigh valley, only in the upper 60s. there's all that cloud cover. and the rain approaching from the west. we have one line of some pretty heavy hours and some lighter showers back to the west. we're not necessarily talking about heavy rain for the morning rush, but there it is. 6:00 a.m., 10:00 p.m. it's still
4:09 pm
basically dry in the philadelphia area. but some of that rain could get into the suburbs, chester, montgomery, bucks counties by 10:00 a.m., still range by 6:00 p.m. lehigh showers getting showers by 6:00 a.m. we expect that across the entire area. more on this wet week coming in just a few minutes. in houston, police shot and killed a man after they say he started shooting at drivers at random. according to investigators, the shooter was a disgruntled lawyer who was either fired from or had a bad relationship with his law firm. a total of nine people were injured. police say they found a number of weapons at the scene. let's head now to charlotte where protesters are calling for the resignation of the mayor and police chief. meantime, city officials have lifted the midnight curfew imposed when the protesters turned violent in the wake of the police shooting death of keith scott. over the weekend, police

revenge. david wildstein testified that governor christie's aide bridget kelly e-mailed wildstein that it was "time for some traffic problems" and wildstein said he took it seriously. he said he wanted to punish the democratic mayor of ft. lee who failed to endorse christie. christie has denied knowing about the plot. atlantic city may have found a way to pay off or pay down its debt. the mayor says atlantic city will sell an airport to the city's municipal authority. the $100 million will go to pay off a $73 million loan from the state of new jersey. state officials have threatened to take over the resort town if the debt is not repaid. children who get sick and miss more school than what's allowed in pennsylvania may be getting some help from state lawmakers. dozens of people in support of the student medical leave act rallied inside the capital in harrisburg this morning.
4:12 pm

4:13 pm
tonight's presidential debate is less than five hours away. here is a live look inside the auditorium at hofstra university on long island. this is where the action will begin at 9:00. today hillary clinton's running mate tim kaine predicted a tough time for her challenger, donald trump. kaine told supporters in florida that trump won't be able to run and hide from difficult questions. kaine's counterpart, vice presidential nominee mike pence on the republican side campaigned in new hampshire today. there he told the crowd that he's hoping tonight's moderator, nbc's lester holt, doesn't fact check both candidates. he said trump and clinton should be allowed to take issue with each other. >> okay. so we've heard there from the vp candidates. now it's time to see what our political punch out team thinks about tonight's debate. mark alderman and jim schultz joining us from the site of our debate night special at xfinity live, thanks for being here.
4:14 pm
>> things for having us. >> the candidates will be under the microscope, so will moderator lester holt. some say, like mike pence said a moment ago, that lester should not fact-check the candidates. mark, what do you think? >> senator moynihan famously said you're entitled to your own opinion but not your own facts. i think that is exactly what lester holt needs to enforce tonight. he should give these two full and free rein. i think they both owe it to the american people to be factual when they're talking about their beliefs. >> i couldn't agree more, mark. this is the super bowl of politics. you want to make sure that the ref is calling it straight and throwing a flag when necessary. i think that lester holt really needs to hold their feet to the fire to make sure they're credible in what they're saying.
4:15 pm
>> guys, let's talk about the numbers. we said earlier close to 95 million people could be watching this debate tonight. what kind of impact do you think this debate really has on the race when all is said and done, jim? >> i think it has a tremendous impact on the race. both candidates struggle with credibility with the american people. they're both at about 40%, give or take a point or two. and a lot of that comes down to credibility and how they conducted themselves before the american people. i think there has to be a -- both candidates have to be very serious. i think the cheap shots have to be at a minute. that's very important. the american people will be looking for that. >> i see it a little differently, jim. i think that it's very tight going in and it's going to be very tight coming out. there will be 100 million people watching tonight. 40 million of them are voting for donald trump no matter what happens. 40 million of them are voting for hillary clinton no matter what happens. 10 million are voting for gary
4:16 pm
johnson or jill stein or their next door neighbor no matter what happens. so i think they're talking to 10 million americans. and i'll just be surprised if those 10 million break hard one way or the other. i think we're going to see this as a horse race all the way to november 8. >> i agree it will be a horse race until november 8th. i think the candidates have to speak to the swing voter. they have to speak to pennsylvanians and what pennsylvanians care about. those swing issues will be important tonight, and people will be paying close attention. >> people in pennsylvania will be important this cycle, no question about that. >> watch it all unfold here on the nbc 10. thanks so much. >> our political punchout team will join us again in the next hour. of course they'll be part of our hour-long post-debate special right here on nbc 10. >> announcer: now your nbc 10 first alert weather. it's been a warm, very dry
4:17 pm
month. not this week. it's not going to be warm and it's not going to be dry. we've got cloudy skies everywhere now. on some places are even in the 60s, even in the state of delaware. newark is 68 degrees. wilmington 69. odessa 71. middletown, 71. felton, 70 degrees. a wind off the ocean is keeping temperatures at the beaches down into the 70s too. some of the clouds just starting to get into the shore areas, the rest of the region already pretty cloudy. here is the moisture coming in from the west. we also have trip to moisture coming up from the south. so this is all kind of coming to it to give us a pretty rainy week here. and if we look at the rain chances across our area, they're pretty high. tuesday, all the way throughl,y
4:18 pm
west. expect sunshine from the philadelphia area north and west by noon. and perhaps parts of delaware and south jersey get sunshine at that time. in philadelphia, we have rain at 9:00 a.m. but we have dry weather the rest of the day. that may be the nicest day of
4:19 pm
the week across much of the area. so here is the rain in the philadelphia region, temperatures in the 70s tomorrow, northern suburbs, perhaps a little bit more sunshine, earlier in schwenksville. you don't see any raindrops in our forecast for tomorrow. but we've got lots of rain at the jersey shore and in delaware. rain, thunderstorms, temperatures in the 60s. and we'll show you the rest of the week coming up a little bit later. >> okay, glenn. following the money. the nbc 10 investigators have been taking a closer look at the pennsylvania lottery. >> the money is supposed to protect our parents and grandparents. but we found billions being used for something else. we'll show you how that money is really being spent, coming up on nbc 10 news at 4:00. plus that bandwagon for carson wentz is starting to get pretty full, after another impressive performance. we're asking what's behind his success. plus a husband thought he was buying a gift for his wife
4:20 pm

4:25 pm
of those candidates is higher than usual. so what the candidates say to speak to people who are not inclined to vote for them is more crucial than ever. >> so we know the topics they're going to be talking about, those were announced last week. achieving prosperity, securing america, and america's direction. what do you think they'll respond to most, what will they connect with? >> well, i think what they're going to do is to figure out what voters they're addressing in each of their coalitions and then appeal to their voters in the middle. the three topics that you mentioned are pretty broad all in all. the specifics inside of that will be really important. it will be important for hillary clinton to show that she understands the subjects and knows how to speak to
4:26 pm
republican-inclined voters, to bring them to her side. donald trump has questions about his temperament and about his substantive grasp of the issues. he'll need to show that he has both the temperament and the substance to be president. >> all right, ben ginsburg, we know you'll be watching, as will we, tonight at 9:00. thanks for being here at 4:30, appreciate it. >> nbc 10 is your debate headquarters for tonight's showdown between hillary clinton and donald trump. it begins with our debate night special live at 7:00. after that it's the main event. nbc's lester holt will moderate the debate starting at 9:00. get full highlights and reaction post-debate on nbc 10 news at 11:00. when it comes to the lottery in pennsylvania, it's not just the winners who benefit. >> the state is supposed to use some of the profits to help seniors. the nbc 10 investigators followed the money and found those funds may be going somewhere else.

4:32 pm
programs benefiting older pennsylvanians. that includes prescription drug assistance, in-home care, transportation and home maintenance. nbc 10 investigators found a waiting list 4,000 seniors deep for these programs. gretchen has been waiting since april 2014. >> those waiting lists could be eliminated. >> reporter: pennsylvania's aarp and other advocates say the money is being used to balance the state budget. >> let's have a true picture of what the lottery is paying for. >> reporter: governor wolf's administration says it uses some lottery money to pay the state's medicaid bill. in our analysis we found only one-third of medicaid recipients are seniors. >> we're forced to rely on some of those resources. >> reporter: specifically, last fiscal year the wolf administration used 309 million
4:33 pm
lottery fund dollars to pay for medicaid programs. should you ybe using this lottey fund money to pay for that care? >> i think that right now we have no alternative. >> reporter: secretary albright points to the state's ongoing money troubles and budget battles. >> we need that money to balance the budget. >> if this were the lottery for seniors, it should be going for seniors. >> reporter: it's money people like gretchen could use to stay in her home, the help that she says all seniors were promised. >> i'm 71 years old and can't do this manual labor anymore. >> reporter: the governor's office provided documentation showing more than 45,000 residents over 60 did receive care from the lottery fund. and we need to point out that the wolf administration is not the first to take money from the lottery fund to balance the budget. since 2006, at least $3.9 billion has been taken from the pennsylvania lottery fund to
