are cloudy conditions, and just some spot little areas of drizzle moving through. we've also got some misting and fog that's in the area, because we've got a lot of moisture in the air. that pump of moisture coming from the southwest, where you see, there's more rain that's been falling over parts to our southwest. that's going to be heading our direction and it's going to allow for to us see some isolated to scattered showers or thunderstorms as we get into the afternoon. and that's just day one of several days in a row where we're going to see this potential. so coming up, we're going to talk more about today. we'll also look ahead to your father's day forecast. four hours from now, the jury will resume their deliberations in the bill cosby sexual assault trial in montgomery county. this saturday session will be their sixth day of trying to reach a verdict. nbc 10's cydney long is live at the courthouse in norristown to tell us more about the day ahead. >> reporter: as you know, these jurors have spent the last two weeks away from their families. they will resume these

asking for testimony to be re-read, for the last two days. cosby's defense lawyers have demanded a mistrial numerous times. they've asked the judge to let this be done. the judge, though, fired back saying the defense has no authority to end the deliberations. cosby's spokesperson, andrew wyatt, also eased off the defense's demands to declare a mistrial. >> you know, this is a process. this is in their skmanhands and they're the ones that have the power. they have the power to come and say we're at a deadlock. and we're all patiently waiting. >> reporter: now on friday, jurors asked for five things. among them, the definition of reasonable doubt, rosemary, along with the testimony of constand's police officer brother-in-law, who initially counseled her and her family to call police in the first place. also remember that jurors cannot take this written testimony behind closed doors, so it must be read loud aloud to them in t
courtroom. that takes time. they will return at 9:00 this morning. the question is, will day number six prove to have a conclusion here, a consensus of verdict? we're live in norristown, i'm cydney long, nbc 10 news. >> thanks for that complete report. the jury has been deliberating for longer than they spent listening to the prosecution and the defense laid out their cases if trial started two mondays ago between opening and closing statements and the testimony in between, it lasted 36 hours, over six days. deliberations began late this past monday and have gone on now for 52 hours. while we heard from cosby at the end of the day yesterday, he also made comments on social media. yesterday morning, he posted four different tweets, thanking supporters in norristown and around the world. you can count on nbc 10 to bring you the jury's decision the moment it happens. we'll also have an alert on the nbc 10 app. developing overseas this morning, seven u.s. sailors are missing following a collision between a navy destroyer and a
merchant ship. a massive search is now underway for those sailors off the coast of japan. the "uss fitzgerald" suffered heavy damage to the right side after the crash involving a large philippine container ship last night. part of the destroyer then flooded, but is not in danger of sinking. the ship's commanding officer along with two other crew members were injured and airlifted to a hospital. the navy, along with the japanese coast guard, have launched a widespread search for those missing sailors. president trump has been briefed on this crash and is monitoring the situation. back here in our area, the search has been suspended for two teens missing in the waters down the shore. 16-year-old kaliah hand of atlantic city and 15-year-old ramon quinn of pleasantville disappeared in the ocean in atlantic city late thursday. after a full day of searching, there were no signs of the teens. their families tell us they're heartbroke heartbroken. >> can't fathom losing your child, especially at that young of age.

is a call to unite as concern grows that president trump could fire the top investigator in the russia probe. just yesterday, the top democrat on the house intelligence committee asked congress to stop the president if he tries to remove special counsel, robert mueller. now, this comes as president trump has hired another lawyer to deal with the russia investigation. john dowd joins trump's other high-profile attorney, marc kasowitz. dowd has represented other politicians, including john mccain. president trump seemed to acknowledge yesterday that he is under federal investigation, tweeting, "after seven months of investigations and committee hearings about my collusion with the russians, nobody has been able to show any proof. sad." later, he lashed out at deputy attorney general, rod rosenstein, saying, "i am being investigated for firing the fbi director by the man who told me to fire the fbi director. witch hunt." that's a reference to the president's firing of now former fbi director, james comey.

because when you've got a lot of moisture in there, you've got higher humidity or higher dew points. with dew points, when temperatures are near each other, you get fog. so visibility is down. 1.75 miles in wilmington. atlantic city at .75 mile visibility. a headsup as you run out the door. you may run into some area where you need to take it a little bit sl slower. we're not going to see a ton of sunlight, except for breaking through the clouds from time to time. and we may see some showers, possibly scattered thundershowers this morning around 9:00 a.m. to noon. we could see an isolated to scattered storm pass by. same deal in the afternoon. we could see a few spotty storms pop up as we get into those late afternoon hours. so today, not a washout, but you feed to be prepared if you do have plans outside to go indoors from time to time if these storms do roll through. i want to talk more about this potential. we're also going to talk about the better chance for heavier
