around the low to mid-80s. when we get temperatures that warm, in the afternoon, we could see some thunderstorms fire off, because we have plenty of moisture to tap into, and that moisture goes nowhere. so we'll continue with that chance of storms for your father's day and especially monday. we'll talk more about that coming up in a few minutes. >> we'll be watching it. all right, thank you, krystal. three 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 ease cydney long is live at the courthouse in norristown to tell us more about the day ahead. cydney? >> reporter: rosemary, this trial has been an exhaustive task for this jury. they have already put in 52 hours of deliberations this week. but despite demands for a mistrial, which the jury does not know about, the judge is allowing them to press on and on a day when courthouses are usually locked. so they will return at 9:00 this morning on this day before

whatever it takes to get to a verdict in this case. they're not willing to throw in the towel unless they have unturned every loose leaf, every "i," every "t" crossed. their tenacity is unbelievable. >> reporter: on friday, jurors asked for five things. among them, the definition of reasonable doubt, along with testimony of constand's police officer brother-in-law from canada, who initially counseled her and her family to call authorities. it's unclear just how long this judge will allow jurors to weigh the evidence, considering it is a weekend, so the big question is on day six, will there be some consensus? can this jury reach a unanimous decision on one count, on two, or all three of them, will we have a verdict? we will, of course, keep you posted online and on-air. that is the very latest from montgomery county courthouse here in norristown. i'm cydney long. rosemary, back to you. >> with bated breath. thank you, cyd. you can count on nbc 10 right

the list included congressman trent franks of arizona, jeff duncan of south carolina, mo brooks, of alabama, and a few others who have not yet been named or revealed. police shot and killed hodgkinson during the attack. house majority whip steve scalise was critically wounded in the shooting. doctors say, quote, an excellent recovery is a good possibility wednesd, end quote. but they added that scalise will need more surgeries and rehabilitation. scalise remains in critical condition but is improving. let's stay in washington. there 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. this all 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 told me to fire the fbi director. witch hunt." that, of course, is a reference to the president's firing of now former fbi director, james comey. meantime, the president's latest financial disclosures has become public and it shows he earned nearly $595 million through january 2016 through april of this year, half a billion dollars, that is. $20 million of that came from revenue from his new home in washington. that's been the focus of concern over foreign payments. $19 million came from his golf club in bedminster, new jersey. 6:08 right now on this saturday. coming up, protesters take to the streets after a jury finds a minnesota police officer not guilty in the shooting death of

at this hour, all is calm on the streets of st. paul, minnesota. but as you can see overnight, protests erupted following the not guilty verdict of a police officer in the shooting death of a black driver. officer jeronimo yanez was cleared yesterday in the shooting of philando castile. hundreds of protesters took to the streets and even blocked traffic on a highway in st. paul. police arrested 18 of those protesters. it took jurors four days of deliberations before finding the officer not guilty of manslaughter. last july, castile was shot five times during a traffic stop for a broken taillight. the story made national headlines when his girlfriend streamed the aftermath on
facebook. castile was shot seconds after he told the officer he was carrying a gun and had a permit. yanez has said he believed castile was reaching for the weapon. >> my son loved this city and this city killed my son. and the murderer gets away. >> them jurors did not have enough human empathy and a conscience to just do the right thing. >> the city of st. anthony, minnesota, now says it will dismiss yanez. that's where he's been an officer, even though he was acquitted in the shooting. eagles wide receiver, tory smith, is speaking out against the officer's acquittal. he tweeted, "it's beating a dead horse, but don't talk to me how offensive kap taking a knee was if you aren't offended by philando castile case." smith's tweet referenced 49ers quarterback colin kaepernick kneeling during the national anthem last season in protest of these police-involved incidents. okay. we've got some news now from our
lehigh valley bureau. what started as a church fund-raiser ended with a visit from the bomb squad. someone donated a box of military supplies to a yard sale and one item appeared to be a detonator. so the bomb squad came out to remove it yesterday afternoon. authorities didn't think it was dangerous, but had the bomb squad there out of an abundance of caution. let's head over to western skpen pennsylvania and pittsburgh. this will car destroyed when it caught fire yesterday afternoon. fortunately, no one was inside the car. the car was stranded in those floodwaters. third straight day of flooding yesterday, caused by heavy rain and they've got more rain expected this weekend. >> announcer: now your nbc 10 first alert weather. >> hate to see video like that. we'll have our own round of heavier rain, but that doesn't come until monday bhap . cloudy conditions across the board, scattered showers and thunderstorms just to the north of us and this area of

>> the work is cut out for us, but bit by bit, we're chipping away. >> reporter: in the past few years, hunl gains for marriage and civil rights for the wider gay community, but discrimination can still happen and very often it can come from within the community itself. to highlight issues of race, city leaders unveiled this colorful twist on the rainbow flag, adding block and brown stripes to support gay people of color. >> the lbgt community is in no way exempt or immune from the racism that anybody experiences in this country. >> reporter: but that decision was met by some surprising pushback, e-mails to city hall, asking why a white stripe wasn't also included. >> facebook was on fire. you know, on both sides of the fence. but jason echbs says the flag is not meant as a replacement, it's just a chance to shine a spotlight on the tough issue during a weekend meant for tolerance and love. >> race is a problem and it hasn't been addressed in the lbgt community, so we're working towards that. >> at city hall, randy
gyllenhaal, nbc 10 news. >> 6:47 right now on this saturday. 69 degrees already outside. yep, we are warming up. i think summer is just about here, even if it's not officially. meteorologist krystal klei is tracking some summerlike showers for us. krystal? >> yeah, wednesda already had a wave this past week. right now, 69 in philadelphia. 64 in the suburbs. you can see the live camera showing us low-hanging clouds and fog skies, mostly cloudy today. and you do see some showers reporting parts of delaware at 70 degrees. also note the winds, east right now coming from the east. but they'll be shifting direction today. a warm front presses in. that's going to boost our temperatures and push in a southwest flow. here are the forecast highs. 86 in philadelphia today. 84 in the suburbs, new jersey. 86 in delaware and just a little cooler in the lehigh valley, in parts of berks county. all of us with the possibility of at least a scattered thunderstorm today, as well.
not a washout forecast, but here's what we're seeing now and we could see more of this through the day. just these kind of in and out storms rolling through. nothing terribly heavy right now. a little pocket of heavier rain in parts of new castle county and starting to move into parts of south jersey. that's the yellows, oranges, and reds you see and that does drive all the way down to cape may county, as well. you can see moving over morris river as we speak. this will continue to progress to the northeast here. and it seems to be holding together enough, i wouldn't be surprised if we have a brief period of some heavier rain over philadelphia, as well, in the next hour or two. our temperatures along the shore today, if you're heading there for father's day weekend, not bad. the problem is, they come with the possibility of some showers and scattered thunderstorms this afternoon, as well. 82, rehoboth beach. cape may, 86 degrees. and 78 in atlantic city. on your shore cast for today, 66 to 71 degrees, the water temperatures we're looking at, actually not that bad. you've got to be prepared, if there are any storms today, you head inland. stay for safety, and then when you are able to go back out, enjoy the beach again.
3 to 4 feet for our wave heights and there is a moderate rip current risk, as well. so areas that you could typically see in the eddies, edges of the water that typically see the rip current risk, those are the areas you want to avoid today. hour by hour forecast, take a look as we start today. you can see we've got some of those spotty showers and thunderstorms right now. that will continue in the morning hours, 9:30 a.m., maybe a little stronger near parts of the lehigh valley in berks. go into the afternoon, notice we kind of spectacled the green across the board. not a washout, but some showers and thunderstorms do develop in and out through 6:00 p.m. this evening. cloudy overnight, humid throughout the day tomorrow. we stay with mostly cloudy conditions for your father's day. we've got some spot showers about 3:00 p.m. over the lehigh valley and suburbs. and those showers and thunderstorms do progress farther south along the i-95 corridor, into tomorrow evening. but the big concern here is really, when we get to your monday. 9:00 a.m., starting to see some rain, heavier rain in the afternoon, thunderstorms possible, and we could see
strong to severe thunderstorms, which may lead to some damaging conditions. we'll take a look at your ten-day on 10, coming up in jux just a few minutes. >> announcer: this is sports desk brought to you by xfinity, x1 from xfinity will change the way you experience tv. >> hey, i'm john clark from csn. big sixers news. multiple reports say the sixers are really deep in talks with the celtics to trade up for the number one overall pick in the nba draft. it is next thursday night. and one report says they have agreed in principle. the report says the sixers would take this guy, markelle fultz. here he is in april coming out of a sixers tunnel. did he know something? he watched the sixers game that night courtside and he like what had he saw. he's a point guard from washington. he also can shoot it. he told us then, no doubt he would be the number one pick. >> i might have a chance to go here, so i want to come out and see how they play and the atmosphere. >> you came out of the sixers'
tunnel when you came out here. could you picture that happening in the future? >> oh, man, i could see it happening. i think it would be a great experience. so it'll be cool. >> the sixers will work out fox today. they reportedly worked out josh jackson yesterday in sacramento. phillies last night were going for two straight wins. arizona diamondbacks in pay. take a look at this play by freddy galvis. runner on first in the first. freddy, quick reaction, steps on second, quick throw for the double play. that is gorgeous defense. phillies down 2-1 in the fifth. catcher cameron rupp ties it up. solo home run, fifth of the season, so we are tied up at two. in the sixth, maikel frankel with two on, that's an 0-2 pitch, so herrera scores easily, altair scores easily. in the seventh, the other team's blanco, gregor blanco ties it right back up. two-run shot. diamondbacks also add a sacked fly, phillies lose 5-4. they have lost 9 of 10.
the flyers have traded nick cousins to the coyotes for a fifth round draft pick and a prospect. the nhl draft is a week away. next friday night. and there is a consensus this is a two-player draft. ron hextall is playing a little poker like all the over gms right now. he says all the options for the flyers are open. >> yeah, there's a consensus top two. but look back at the history of the draft, there's been a lot of consensus top whatever. and you look and you go, my god. so, you've got to be really careful with consensus. >> all right. i am john clark for csn.
