because you had two witnesses that were backing up ms. johnson's testimony from yesterday. they put ms. constand on today, which testified to the time of those witnesses. what the prosecution wanted to do was show a consistent story amongst the corroborating websites, ms. johnson from yesterday and ms. constand, and you have her testify showing the jury that everyone consistently is having the same story about what they are accusing mr. cosby of. >> yesterday the defense really did make it clear they would question the credibility of these witnesses. so how do jurors respond to that? especially questioning a woman that was sexuallied. >> this trial was coming up for a long time. so there's nothing that hasn't been thought out carefully. from the prosecution and the defense, the defense made it very clear yesterday they were going to go after her and come at her hard. they were yelling yesterday. so i think when you make that
decision that you were going to go after ms. constand that you're going to attack credibility and don't believe anything she's talked about and made up all of this, then that is your theory. that's what you're going to do. the jury is going to understand that. the jury is going to see that. i don't believe they are going to punish mr. cosby or the defense team for picking that strategy. it's going to work with some people and some people it might not. >> we'll see what happens. thank you for your insight as we continue to cover every angle of this trial. >> just a gray shot. we saw rain, gray skies a lot of clouds. not a great day for a walk there along kelly drive. >> and not a great day either at the art museum. this is a live look right now. you can see folks going around the circle there. kind of gray there. you can see showers moving across the region on the radar.
when will it dry out? glenn schwartz has that answer in your most accurate forecast. >> the rain is going to move out first. it's going to take a lot longer for the to move out and for the wind to change direction ask allow the warmer air to come in. this is cape may and it's been a miserable day there. and it will be pretty miserable tomorrow too. but then things improve. it's 63 in philadelphia. you can see how cloudy it is. but you can actually see some peeks of blue up in the lehigh valley and a little bit of sunshine in parts of delaware. the western portions of the state closest to maryland. in philadelphia itself on 63 at the airport. 62 in society hill. these areas are hotter. but they are not and coolest is up northeast. only 60 degrees.
the average temperature time of day, this time of year is 80. so we're 20 degrees below normal at this point. we did reach 69 before the temperatures have fallen. then we start to climb. here are the showers. you can see the fast moving showers coming through this the lehigh valley and more to come. and the showers coming through south jersey and flood threats as they keep moving. now it's just about on top of cedarville. more showers as we head through the evening. so that's what we've got.
the clouds hang in there. as all of the rain moves out, we're left with the cloudy skies, east wind, cool temperatures, so tomorrow may actually be cooler than today overall. but without the showers. look at this. just the cloudy symbols and temperatures fairly uniform änázorrow. reading at 62 degrees. you really don't see sunshine until we get toward the end of the week. and watch these temperatures go up. by saturday we're up to 86 degrees. sunday up to 90. dover up to 82. we finally have sunshine. that's a totally sunny day on saturd saturday. and then in allentown, same story. 65 tomorrow. we're headed to 78 on friday. 84 on saturday. wildwood at 75 degrees.
