5:02 pm
wave of the season. but it's going to get really hot. once we get rid of the circulation of hermine, which is still affecting part of the area. it was a nice sunny day inland. but at the shore, it was pretty cloudy. we've got rain bands moving through ocean county right now, going down into atlanta county. it's been a pretty cloudy afternoon. this is a live picture in ab seeken. nothing but clouds. very dark there. showers moving through. and more showers tonight until this thing starts to move out. and when it does, with this northwest wind, it's going to allow some of that hotter air from the midwest to move in. 20-mile-an-hour winds now in mount holly and in wilmington, a little bit less in other places. the average high temperature for this time of the year is only 81. upper 80s so far today. and then near 90 tomorrow. then look how hot it gets as we
5:03 pm
go through the rest of the week. but overnight tonight, it's still relatively mild. not too humid. and dry from the p.a. suburbs, lehigh valley. but watch what happens in new jersey, parts of new jersey, and especially the jersey shore. seeing some showers as we go through the overnight period. and then starting to dry out tomorrow. let's see how long that heat's going to last. and if we're going to set any records in a few minutes. new details on the case against bill cosby. today a judge decided when the famous comedian will go on trial. the prosecution is trying to get more accusers to testify against him. nbc 10's deanna durante joins us from outside the montgomery county courthouse with today's developments. deanna? >> reporter: jacqueline, prior bad acts, that's how prosecutors described the evidence they want to bring in by bringing in as many as 13 accusers.
5:04 pm
those names not made public. the motion filed just minutes before bill cosby arrived here in montgomery county with his attorney. now, he was here for a pretrial conference. in many cases they don't get news coverage. this being bill cosby, and the fact that this case has been made an issue, not only here in montgomery county, but across the country, obviously this was a day that got a lot of attention. and what was discussed in that ranged from when the date of his trial will begin, the judge right now set it for june 5th of next year, to evidence that prosecutors want to introduce, and evidence the defense wants to keep out. some of that evidence includes a deposition that cosby gave during his civil lawsuit with the alleged victim in this case. prosecutors want to introduce his words. the defense said it shouldn't be allowed in. the defense is also trying to keep out a recorded conversation that was taken between the accused mother and bill cosby. now, the defense has some very strong words for the prosecutors
5:05 pm
in this case. >> the media has presumed him guilty, not innocent. the media has championed the causes of his accusers with little thought to investigation, to little thought of challenging or exposing the motivations behind any accusations. in the courts, we've seen a prosecutor break a promise, a time-honored promise in this case. >> reporter: now, some of that has to do with a press release released under a former district attorney, and that former district attorney testified in the past he gave a nonprosecution agreement for cosby. the trial date is set for june 5th. we've not seen the last of the back-and-forth between the defense and prosecutors. even though the trial date is set, the case may not take off then. also, prosecutors are talking right now about the idea of a change of venue.
5:06 pm
we'll get into that request. the defense said it will be making it. live in norristown, deanna durante, nbc 10 news. our coverage from cosby in court continues in just a few minutes. our legal analyst joins us to break down today's developments, including the push to allow other alleged assaults by cosby, that's coming up at 5:15. happening today, jury selection in the trial that will determine who, if anyone, should compensate victims of 2013 market street building collapse. it includes the owner of the building being demolished, the salvation army, and the demolition contractor, and you'll remember the collapse killed six people and injured 13 others. two of them are the only convicted of criminal charges in that collapse. both are now in prison. a philadelphia man has been charged with murder after police say he ran over a woman with his car, and then beat her to death with a shovel.
5:07 pm
joel horton has been charged in adrienne lindsey's death. a person heard a woman screaming, and they found horton standing over the victim who was pinned under a car. meanwhile, a popular technical school with campuses across our region is shutting down. "nbc 10 responds" reporter harry hairston is here to tell us how the closure will impact the students. >> itt moved to close the doors after a directive from the department of education. the government issuing tighter restrictions on how for-profit schools can operate. now, the government banned itt tech from enrolling any new students last week who uses federal financial aid. the shutdown comes after a federal investigation into itt tech for alleged fraud and deceptive marketing tactics. in the statement today, itt said it's always worked tirelessly to ensure comply answer with all
5:08 pm
applicable laws and relying lagss. now, if you went to itt tech, you may be able to get your federal student loan debt wiped away by filling out a form on the department of education's website. head to facebook for more on that. itt tech had local campuses in philadelphia, levittown, and malton, new jersey. >> harry hairston, thank you so much. public school students in philadelphia should be getting their rest tonight. >> they should. classes begin bright and early tomorrow morning. nbc 10 found out schools have a lot of other resources ready for them this year. at nebinger elementary schools, teachers got to crack out boxes and boxes of new books. 130,000 books will go to 650 classrooms. last year the pennsylvania budget standoff meant districts couldn't get their funding or textbook money on time. philly superintendent said he feels much better going into
5:09 pm
this school year. >> for this year, we're not announcing we're closing something, or laying someone off, we're not announcing that reductions in resources or programs. instead, we're talking about investments. >> this year each school will once again have counselors and nurses. dr. hight said the district is also still working hard to reach a contract deal with his teachers. one thing is for sure, a lot of kids, a lot of parents think the school year's long enough already. so why does new jersey governor chris christie want to make it even longer? we'll take a look at his argument coming up later on at 5:00. plus, doctors have some bad news for parents. like getting the flu vaccine could get even more unpleasant for your child.

5:14 pm
it looks like he's totally whipped donald trump. >> he said he has not made up his mind. is it fair to lump them in together? >> two things are true. one, if a united states senator has not heard enough from donald trump to have an opinion on whether he's for him or against him, that should be disqualifying at this point. being a senator, you make tough decisions every single day. it's time for toomey to make this decision. he's just not being straight with voters. >> reporter: even though senator toomey isn't out campaigning with trump, he said he still needs to be convinced to support him. the trump factor is there in this race. at 6:00, we'll take a closer look at that and the option toomey thinks some voters might take. turning to this now. bill cosby was back in court in montgomery county, accused of sexually assaulting a former temple university employee.

today we learned new information in the case. late this afternoon, a judge set a trial date of june 5th. also, the defense said it wants the trial moved out of montgomery county. prosecutors want 13 other cosby accusers to testify. cosby is charged with sex crimes involving a woman in our area more than a decade ago. it all came out in a pretrial hearing today in norristown. nbc news legal analyst is here. let's start with some of the accusations, the other accusers cosby is not charged with assaulting them, so the question becomes why would their testimony even be allowed? >> i can tell you what. this is going to be the most important ruling in this case. defendant. the value to the prosecution, to make their case. if you have bad acts, in a
5:16 pm
situation like this, the prosecution is going to say this is his method of operation. he uses drugs and alcohol. the past 13 accusers will get on the stand and say how they had similar situations with mr. cosby, how they were drugged and how alcohol was used to be taking advantage of them. make the jury think he was guilty then and he's guilty now. >> enrique, bill cosby gave a deposition in the civil suit. the defense is trying to keep it out. ruling, the evidence that came out during those hearings was that the prosecutor did say, i did grant him immunity so he
5:17 pm
could testify in the civil case, which meant he gave up his fifth amendment right to remain silent. i think if they relied on that and the prosecutor at the time said that's why he did it, i allowed. >> nbc 10 legal analyst enrique latoison, thank you for your time. >> thank you. >> you can also follow our coverage on air, online, and get the updates sent right to your phone by downloading the nbc 10 app. now, your nbc 10 first alert weather. >> starting to heat up out there, as we see a lot of sunshine in the philadelphia area, and northern and western suburbs today. but cooler in new jersey, where it's been pretty cloudy across much of the area for much of the day. what about the jersey shore? the ocean temperature is 72

5:19 pm
95 thursday. close to that friday. maybe the hottest of all on saturday. that is some pretty hot weather. and not only is it going to be hot, it's going to be humid, too. we may be breaking some records. philadelphia's record for thursday is 96. we're going to be pretty close to that. we could be seeing some records in places like mount holly, and millville, newark, delaware, and record heat last year at this time. but not for as many days as we're getting here. it's 87 right now. and as we go through the day tomorrow, we're going to be seeing a lot of sunshine. temperatures getting into the upper 80s. and tacony, 89 degrees. you see it's dry. pretty much everywhere. even at the jersey shore. the remains of hermine should be moving out and keeping it dry. and with the land breeze, it
5:20 pm
kind of warms culver city up to 86 degrees. and as we go into the rest of the week, it just gets hotter and hotter. the suburbs may not quite get to 90 tomorrow. should get to 90 thursday and friday, even lehigh valley getting there. a lot of sunshine, dry weather. at the jersey shore, a bit of a land breeze. it's pretty warm at the shore as well. now we're starting to get a problem since most places did not get any rain from hermine, that we're not going to be seeing rain for a good while most likely. so as we go through the ten-day, there's saturday at 95. the eagles, it looks like sunday is going to finally get some comfort. and then temperatures drop a little bit more on monday. and we're going to have to wait until later on next week before we see temperatures dropping back into the 70s. pennsylvania has started to let consumers buy wine in more
