we very breaking news from norristown, you see the back of former d.a. bruce caster, and we are watching the courtroom door for bill cosby to come out. he is there all day trying to get a case, a lawsuit dismissed. a sexual lawsuit from when he was in the company of andrea constand, a former temple university employee, the 78-year-old says he at the time made an agreement with the d.a. that there would be any prosecution so she could pursue the civil case which they later settled. it's a long day for the 78-year-old, there are up to 50 women and many say he drugged some of them to get to that in that way. we'll have much more to say about this once bill cosby
5:25 pm
emerges from the courtroom. lets go to cecily tynan tracking flood concerns for tomorrow. >> very warm air and rain is on the way, right now we have a live snapshot from bear creek resort where people are getting in skiing and snowboarding. 51 in philadelphia and wilmington 49 degrees. satellite 6 along with action radar showing really full sunshine today we are just beginning to see the leading edge of clouds working in from the west and the storm system i'm tracking, it's a big storm, low pressure south of omaha, south of that low pressure is where you get the blizzard conditions and the trailing cold front is where we see the severe weather and the cold front is pushing to the east and that brings us a round of rain and bringing up warmer air. the call from accuweather, clear and then the clouds thicken and earlier tomorrow morning patchy fog and sprinkles and showers
5:26 pm
mainly west of philadelphia with a warm front. 38 in philadelphia and trenton 34 and allentown 32 could have freezing drizzle and fog in allentown and cape may 3 and wilmington 39 degrees, the fog warning goes into effect except along the shore. from noon tomorrow until 5:00 thursday, we could still have runoff even after the rain that could cause minor flooding. tomorrow morning the clouds are here and again have a few showers, mainly philadelphia on west, not all that heavy for the morning commute and then as we head into the afternoon still the bulk of the heaviest rain around noon across the poconos still some showers and then this whole system slides to the east at 3:00 and this brings us downpours along the i-95 corridor pressing in south jersey by 6:00 and then off the coast temperatures well up into the 60s looking at record warmth tomorrow, and big concern that we could have gusty winds,
5:27 pm
something called a low level jet, this is 5,000 feet up in the atmosphere when you get heavy precipitation it can pull down the winds to the surface, up the low level jet, and we are not getting wind gusts, but up to 45 miles per hour. the concerns the creeks and streams and neshaminy and brandywine is minor flooding, and minor flooding of the schuylkill basin on thursday. 66 and record warmth and temperatures stepping down and 62 on thursday, and weekend looking good, and temperatures around 50 degrees, believe it or not. there is snow next week and adam can talk about that in the seven-day forecast. >> thank you cecily. here is an another live look at the courthouse in norristown, bill cosby is still inside of that courtroom we believe huddling with his attorneys after a day in court as he tries to get the sex assault charges
5:28 pm
filed in montgomery county tossed out today based on an agreement he said he made with the former d.a., bruce caster, we'll stick with this and we believe that bill cosby is coming out momentarily. a fascinating legal question being debated here today, and has ramifications on this case and other cases. here it is, the bruce caster, says that i made an agreement, albeit a verbal agreement, with bill cosby that if he testified truthfully in a civil case filed by andrea constand he would not charge him criminally. well we know he has been charged criminally by the current d.a. kevin steele and caster says that should not be allowed to happen. >> and here is mr. cosby being led out to the elevator and
5:29 pm
deposed in the civil case and that was released to the public and the testimony where he admitted obtaining prescription medication and giving it secretly to have sex with them. that caused many of these cases from years ago to come out. he is leaving now in norristown courthouse and that is in fact what has been the issue and the statute of limitations have run out on many of the women who said he assaulted them so only a few are still legally able to pursue the cases, we are showing you the side of the courthouse from chopper 6 hd he still has a long walk from the elevator banks to the steps, we'll stay with you a moment and give you a look as he gets into his vehicle. the statute of limitations had not run out because the attorneys for andrea constand, maybe one day before her case would have run out.
5:30 pm
they went ahead and filed charges and that is what we are debating tonight. >> the last time we saw him walking into a courtroom in montgomery county was when he was first charged. he emerged from a car then wearing his somewhat iconic sweatsuit looking somewhat confused and guided by his attorneys and tripping and now he emerges wearing a suit and tie and smiling even as he got inside of the elevator seeming more confident and of course some legal experts say he has reason to be confident because of this agreement that bruce caster says he made. here indeed bill cosby is mile smiling and waving to the crowd. he is being guided, because he has vision issues rather than tripping like he did when we came here a few months ago, he has serious charges he is asking
5:31 pm
to be thrown out completely based on a verbal agreement made and today in courtroom testimony, d.a. bruce caster concurred with that saying he made the verbal agreement and the d.a. bruce caster said today that that agreement should stand but of course it's not up to him anymore, it's up to a judge in montgomery county to make the decision. that would in effect throw out the case that andrea constand filed. there we are on chopper 6 hd and what you see is a tremendous amount of news media that came from around the country and the world to watch this. really the fall of an icon, here in america, and here he is waiving as he gets back into his suv. and it's worth note in california today, one case against bill cosby was in fact dismissed a model that filed charges, with similar claims decided to withdraw her suit.
5:32 pm
one victory in california for bill cosby even though that never played out in a courtroom and he is hoping for another vkv victory here today. >> you remember him as america's father for television shows that he produced and owns the rights to, he is a wealth person and actor and was honored in the country and now many people would say because he has these issues come forth tarnished his image. that is what is happening today with bill cosby.
5:33 pm
