5:15 am
in, granting bruce earl ward a temporary stay of his planned execution. the flurry of court action came after protests at the state capitol in arkansas friday. an attorney for three of the inmates had called it assembly line killing. >> it is unprecedented that the state is trying to execute this many people in this short a period of time. >> reporter: drug manufacturers have been reluctant to provide states more drugs used in legal injections since a botched execution happened in oklahoma three years ago. >> it's been a 25-year nightmare for the victims that have had to deal with this. and now it's time for that justice to be carried out. >> reporter: the arkansas attorney general's office says it will try to get the latest court decision halting the executions overturned by the state supreme court. chris pallone, nbc news. not guilty is the verdict for former nfl star, aaron hernandez, in the murders of two men in 2012.
5:16 am
prosecutors say hernandez fired on the men's car in boston because he thought that they were being disrespectful to him when one of the men bumped him and spilled his drinking. the jury deliberated six days before acquitting the former patriots' tight end. >> he was innocent of these crimes and the jury spoke with one voice and we are delighted. >> the jury did find hernandez guilty of a weapons charge. he is already serving life in prison for a different murder in 2013. delta airlines is now allowing its supervurz visor tor passengers up to $10,000 to give up seats on overbooked flights. delta hopes to avoid a public relations nightmare like the one united airlines is currently facing. security officers were caught on video dragging a passenger off his flight earlier this week. he is now threatening to sue. united is reviewing its
5:17 am
policies, including incentives for customers, and will announce any action by the end of the month. let's head now to washington, where the trump administration says it will not release logs of visitors to the white house, a policy followed by former president barack obama. the administration pointed to grave national security risks. watchdogs believe the logs are an important way to monitor which groups and individuals may be trying to influence pouu.s. policy. back hear in our area, down at the shore, a story we've been following for several years now. yesterday, homeowners in margate dropped their lawsuit against the state's dune rebuilding plan. the homeowners say they realize there was nothing they can do to prevent the start of the project. hurricane sandy badly damaged the beachfront in 2012. all right. it's that time for your saturday checklist. a few things you should grab as
5:18 am
you head out the door, the umbrella not one of those things. the sunglasses you can grab. you get that glow sometimes in the afternoon when you have a cloudy day. so you might want to sunglasses on hand. light jacket, i would say you need it this morning, but not as we get into the afternoon once those temperatures make their way into the mid- and upper 60s. and rain boots certainly not something you will need as we track through this forecast. hair spray, though, some extra hair spray, maybe, for the ladies. that's a forecast i think you're going to need because we've got breezy to windy conditions today into tomorrow. here's a look at our radar and satellite view. starting wide, because we've got the clouds that are mostly vo d surrounding our area, but not yet to our area. as we track through today, we'll see more clouds move in. they're not really going to bring more rain. we're looking at a little additional moisture moving in, which will give us a very isolated chance of showers overnight. take a look at the forecast for today. upper 60s for us in our philadelphia neighborhood.
5:19 am
center city, up to 67. the icons are pretty consistent here in showing us the cloudy to mostly cloudy conditions by later today. in the suburbs, mid-60s. that's about the same for the lehigh valley. mid-60s for our forecast highs. and into new jersey, same deal. mid- mid- to some upper 60s. a little cooler, that moderating effect along the shoreline. 58 for cape mau ay and atlantic city. in delaware, spot low 50s, but 66 for rehoboth beach. that's today let's go through today into tomorrow in your hour-by-hour forecast. starting wide here, and what we see is that if we zoom in and go through our neighborhoods, 2:30 in the afternoon, now we've got more clouds starting to hang overhead, but no rain producing with these clouds. overnight, 10:00 p.m., maybe an isolated shower near the poconos, lehigh valley. really just a spotlight shower is possible across the board, but that's it. isolated chances, at best.
5:20 am
mostly, we stay dry overnight into your sunday morning. so now we're at 7:30 a.m. going to a sunrise service, going to be very nice conditions as we look across the board. and as we continue along through the day, actually, mostly sunny. this is a perfect easter forecast when it comes to the sunshine mixing in with a few scattered showers. temperatures that will be boosting into the 80s. and there you see the isolated shower starting to pop up around 4:30 sunday. as we go overnight, we could see some scattered showers, maybe an isolated thunderstorm as well, but it all clears out by the time we get to your monday morning. meaning overall, it's a dry sunday forecast, also. and here's a look at your easter sunday forecast in philadelphia, more by the hourly. 62 to start, very mild beginning at 6:00 a.m. 66 degrees by 9:00 a.m. and there are those 80s. we should track to the mid-80s for a high in philly. areas like the suburbs, pretty similar, 59 at 6:00 a.m. 81 at 3:00 p.m. and about the same in the lehigh valley, up to 80 by 3:00. as we go through new jersey,
5:21 am
delaware, the shore, same deal. low 80s as we get into the afternoon with a mix of clouds and sun. on the tv show, "star trek," space was the final frontier, but for one local doctor, it's medicine. the sci-fi classic inspired his invention and it could revolutionize the way we monitor our health. nbc 10's keith jones shows us how. >> i would like to take you to sick bay. >> reporter: from the small screen, right into your kids' hands. the "star trek" tricorder. the medical device diagnosing patients so popular, we didn't care it was fake. >> that's cool. >> reporter: but now it's as real as ever, thoonanks to dr. basel harris. e.r. doctor by day, trekkie by night. >> we've watched nearly every episode p episode. >> space, the final frontier. >> reporter: to boldly go where
