literally he gets to live out his dream like a lot of people have a passion to do something and they don't always -- sometimes they have to take an alternate route. he didn't. >> reporter: in some ways it is the kind of emotion that you can understand from any parent but there is a whole other layer here. red dick's mom telling me there are milestone when your kid goes to college. you sort of know what to expect but when your son is entering the nfl, you may have seen it on tv but you still don't know what to expect. live on the parkway i'm lauren mayk, nbc10 news. >> we have you covered for the nfl draft and the excitement gets underway on wednesday. keith jones and i will be live with our nbc10 draft preview on the parkway special. >> it's eagles draft day. we'll be live for that show and on sunday it's eagles blue print as we recap every move the

news. >> the city of new orleans has started removing four confederate monuments this morning. it's hitting a nerve for some people. even people who want these removed are angry about the way it's been done. >> we are elated that this monument's been coming down. we say that this is a -- this is happening in the middle of the night where people can't come out and celebrate. >> it's an egregious attack on history. this is the history of our area. you can't change it by pulling down monuments. >> the mayor says some workers taking down the monuments have been threatened but it won't stop the city from removing the rest of them. >> in south carolina, people are hoping for some relief from the rain. look at this flooding. it's forced roads to close in charleston, rains in the forecast through the evening there but it looks like the rain let's up tomorrow in their forecast and to our weather now. we got a few showers out there tonight. >> and a big warmup on the way.
here's glenn. >> that is coming later in the week before that comes we're getting a little bit of that south carolina rain coming in tomorrow, so it's going to be a really nasty day and a lot wetter than today. 58 and cloudy now with the wind 14-mile-per-hour straight off the ocean. that's keeping temperatures in the 50s. you'll see cloudy skies throughout the area and we're going to keep the clouds and add more rain tomorrow. the temperature has barely gotten up to 60 degrees. fox chase, torresdale and none of those places are likely see 60 degrees tomorrow. we also have more rain coming up from the south. a little bit heavier now down across cumberland county for example, and a lot more down south. there's south carolina here and all this rain is moved into north carolina so it's getting a little closer to us each hour. as we go through the night tonight and into tomorrow, you can see it's scattered for much
of the night but by tomorrow morning it's a pretty steady rain and we're going to get hour after hour after hour of this. it's pretty much a washout tomorrow and some of this rain gets to be on the heavier side. the temperature isn't going anywhere and barely to 50 degrees in pottstown and allentown late in the morning and even by afternoon we're still in the 50s and now we've got some areas of heavier rain coming up from the south as the storm itself, the nor'easter, weak nor'easter starts coming up. that will cut off the rain in cape may and millville, late in the day but that's coming pretty late in the day so it's raining all day. there's the heavier rain going up toward lehigh valley and we still have more rain tomorrow night, potentially threatening the phillies game and wednesday morning, we keep the showers early. they move out but the clouds linger and that'll keep the temperatures from going up much more than they would.
because if we had sunshine by wednesday we'd be well into the 70s and by thursday we'd be into the 80s. here's philadelphia. chilly 52 for the high in chestnut hill. that's the wind symbol along with the rain. voorhees township, 55, rob binzville 53 with the rain and the wind. jersey shore just really nasty. long port 57. the wind over 30-mile-per-hour for the good bit of the day. it's going to be pretty ugly there. 15 to 25-mile-per-hour wind on average across the area even more at the shore. but look what happens by thursday, by the time we have the nfl draft. 78 degrees for the high temperature. mix of clouds and sun. 84 on friday. chance of a shower in the afternoon, 84! that's not the end of it. 88 on saturday. and that's not the end of it either because it's going to get even warmer.
there's friday 84, saturday 88, sunday 89. we're getting closer to record level. look at this weekend coming up. compared to what we just saw with highs in the 50s and 60s. it's going to be hot and humid. we have a chance of a couple of showers p.a. suburbs, lehigh valley on saturday but otherwise that's a pretty amazing forecast for later in the weekend next weekend. >> it's too late to say sorry. >> that is the word today from the lawyer representing the man who was dragged off the united airlines plane a couple of weeks ago. now they're filing a lawsuit. this video went viral after it happened three weeks ago. dr. david dao was droged off a flight in chicago by airport police after refusing to give up his seat to make room for crew members. his lawyer today the "today" show, the ceo had a chance to
make things right and he blew it. >> he had that opportunity to publicly, first of all, apologize and he didn't. and then he called the doctor belligerent. then he finally said mea cul pa. >> after another incident on a plane this weekend, you can see the woman's crying. she claims an american attendant nearly hitting her baby after ripping her stroller out of her hand. he's not sure about filing a lawsuit in this particular incident. tom costello is joining us now to talk about these incidents on planes. >> we can relate as passengers but what stress does it put on other airline employees like the pilots let's say? >> i think that all airline employees right now are feeling that they're under the microscope because of these incidences and because all of us
are walking around with these things. we can all video record something whenever we think something's not right and people are and they're really recording in some cases a very minor trans gregs that is not that big of a deal but when it rises to the level of in the view of many people an assault or completely inappropriate behavior, video recordings are holding airlines accountable. but i will tell thought airlines and i've talked to flight attendants and pilots they feel they're under a microscope being watched by the public and that maybe it's deserved following these incidents but these incidents do not represent the way that the vast majority of people do their jobs. but it may be symptomatic of an industry under stress right now. we're all packed into these planes, they're all flying full. we have no elbow or leg room. you have to pay for your overhead luggage not the luggage underneath and you hope you
arrive on time. it doesn't take much to set people off. so this is really a symptomatic of a system nationwide that's under stress. >> a lot of stress there. we saw in the american airlines incident speaking of being recorded another passenger, tom, who speaks up for the woman and he's told stay out of this. so what's the best thing to do if you find yourself as a passenger in that position where something's going on in the flight? >> well, listen. you've got to decide whether it's appropriate to stand up or not and whether to make your voice heard and of course these days everybody is starting to pull out the video recorder. i think the airlines are so sensitive to any suggestion that they're not treating the passenger fairly that very often a supervisor will step in and here's where the american airlines story differs from united. american recognized very early on within hours they had a problem because their supervisors on the ground told headquarters we got a problem. so by the time that flight made it to dallas, the flight
attendant was suspended, the passenger upgraded first class and a thousand dollars gift voucher. compare that to united airlines which spent two to three days blaming the passenger before it finally said we screwed up, it's our fault a 100%. as a result of that american may or may not but may not be facing a lawsuit. united almost certainly is. can i just make one point of clarification. i think it's important to hold the people who are on the ground accountable. those people who came on board the flight in chicago that wore the jackets that said police, they were not police. they had been told to stop wearing the jackets and they were still wearing them. they were security guards and they had been fighting for the right to be treated like police and even to get guns and now the chicago city council is highly unlikely to approve that and they've been told yet again take off those jackets. you're not police. >> tom costello, thank you for your insight.
>> you can watch more about these plane incidents and fallout from them on "nbc nightly news" with lester holt. >> come race weekend in delaware and while that may not change this summer, there will be plenty of people looking up too. what will be filling the skies for the first time in dover, next.

customers hope someone knows who turned to this disguise to hide his identity. >> absolutely i'd like him to get caught. i come in here and buy tickets or see if you can win something and the place is robbed. i'm startled. this is a good area too. everybody's honest. that guy wasn't honest. it's sad. >> reporter: and i spoke to the store owner on the phone. he tells me for just over $150 or so in the register, the damages here to replace both that cash register and the front door were about ten times as much at about $1,500 so he and police hope someone may recognize him and dial police. we're live in washington township tonight i'm cydney long. nbc10 news. >> switching gears to the weather now. plenty of cloud cover overhead as these students made their way around the campus earlier today. here's a live look up broad

there tomorrow. 55 in coatesville, up to 60 in allentown. that's way below average for this time of the year. as you go through the evening, we have these waves of moisture coming up but it increases as we head toward the morning rush and so by as the clock goes, it is solid, solid rain. some of it on the heavier side. more wind in addition to that. so it is a really ugly day tomorrow. as we go through the night tonight and into the tomorrow the temperature doesn't drop a whole lot but it stays wet, moisture is in there tomorrow morning and get used to it and especially at the shore, you got wind on top of that rain. but a tremendous change by the end of the week, i'll tell you more about that coming up. now here's a look at some of the stories making headlines county by county across our

medford, atco, 57 degrees, washington township at 55 degrees. pemberton 56 and robbinsvile at 58 degrees. you can see none of those areas are in the 60s and none are going to be there tomorrow. you see that wind coming out of the northeast, yeah, look back to the south. there's the center of the storm. you can see obviously in south carolina and the winds coming in off the ocean, in south carolina, north carolina, virginia, delmarva, all the way up here. there's nothing to stop it. so here comes the rain. that's going to increase as we go through the night tonight and into tomorrow and some of that heavy rain from the south coming up right with that area of low pressure that's going to come right over our area tomorrow. there we go as we get through the night tonight and into tomorrow morning, that's when we really start to pick things up just in time for the morning rush. it's going to be wet. it's going to be windy and it's going to be chilly.
the temperatures, whatever you see or feel first thing in the morning, it's not going to warm up much during the day. and then in the afternoon, we have some more rain and some of this is pretty heavy as you can see downpours. that's afternoon rush. so it's not a pretty day tomorrow. evening threatening the phillies game but the weather should be much better wednesday and thursday. then wednesday morning we could still have some leftover showers or little bit of drizzle and it should be cloudy and it should stay cloudy pretty much all day wednesday and that will prevent the temperature from going up much higher than the atmosphere overall is going to be very warm later in the week and as soon as the sun comes out, that temperature shoots up. reading 55 tomorrow. bethlehem 55, easton 53 degrees. 53 and the wind and rain in newtown.
