pushed a deputy, and ran away. the description from police -- daniel selby was last seen wearing an orange shirt, jeans, and work boots. he's 25 years old and is still handcuffed in the front. police tell me there's no reason to believe that he's armed or dangerous. he was in custody for a failure to appear in court charge, but you're still asking not to approach him if you see him. this was the area around and inside the house where where the escaped prisoner was last seen. police have wrapped up their search in this area. and of course, we are going to make our way around and, of course, as we hear anymore information, we'll be sure to pass that along. live in doylestown, matt delucia, nbc10 news. >> thanks. meantime, opening statements in the bill cosby sex assault trial beginsed to n norristown -- guns today begins today in n.

these showers move through. this will be near parts of berks county and into chester county. right now what we're going to be dealing with is light rain for the most part across the area. for the morning hours, spotty in center. not a lot moving through. later in the day we could see thunderstorm development. let's watch the hour-by-hour forecast. in the a.m. hours until 11:30 in the morning. this model doesn't show a lot going on for most of us. i wouldn't be surprised if there's still a spot shower moving through. when it's that light green, it indicates a light rain. we're not talking anything that will cause issues if you're out driving. 11:30 to 3:30 in the afternoon, same deal. the model's shy to give us much action. if you see a few spot cells, could be scattered through philadelphia, wilmington, or trenton, as well. this will be sporadic in center. we go from 3:30 in the afternoon through 7:00 p.m. and see areas farther south, a little more steady rain. this line of steadier rain, again, i think may be a little
farther to the north. and then it's all about focus farther to north for thunderstorms overnight. the deeper oranges, yellows overmay lead to a strong -- overnight may lead to a stronger shower or thunderstorm. the rain isn't just going to let up. in fact, we've got chances of rain for our monday, tuesday, and even lingering showers light in nature for wednesday. then things drop off thursday and friday. and on top of that, we're tracking temperatures that take quite a dip before they take another rise, as well. we were up to 80 yesterday. we'll be around the same today. look at the drop-off on tuesday and wednesday as we continue with the potential for rain. only 60s for a couple of days. definitely indoor days. then 90s on the ten day on 10. we'll get to that in a few minutes. >> thank you. 5:39 on your monday. and if you're just getting up with us, we want to help you get to work today. >> when we say we we mean
