to the developing story we brought you at the top of the hour. bill cosby is in court fighting to have sexual assault charges against him dropped. much of his argument hinges on the testimony of a former d.a. who refused to file charges a decade ago. we're live in montgomery county, pennsylvania with, the latest on the case. >> pat, the hearing continues at this hour. it was the comedian and entertainer bill cosby who drew hundreds of reporters from around the world here to this small courthouse in pennsylvania. but it was the testimony of the former district attorney, bruce caster, that everyone was waiting to hear. despite clutching a cane, 78-year-old bill cosby moved swiftly into a montgomery county courthouse ahead of a pivotal hearing in his sexual assault case. he faces trial for 2004
4:17 pm
allegation against andrea. the key witness tuesday, former district attorney bruce caster who had previously indicated there wan as agreement that cosby would never be criminally prosecuted. on the stand castor clarified there was never a formal agreement with cosby. whether castor made what he characterized as a legally binding decision that cosby would never be prosecuted. castor said doubts about constand's credibility made it clear to him that a case against cosby was unwinnable. >> at the time i remember thinking that he probably did do something inappropriate. but thinking that and being able to prove it are two different things. >> cosby testified in the civil suit against him that case settled in 2006. the transcripts of cosby's testimony were released last year. montgomery county's new district attorney used cosby's admissions from that case to file criminal charges against him in december. among other things, cosby admitted giving constand wine and pills to help her relax.

4:19 pm
for the afternoon rush, more moderate travel delays. yes, there will be some traffic getting backed up tomorrow afternoon. not having to worry about the icy conditions for tomorrow morning. these are the early-morning temperatures, everywhere above freezing. frederick, so at the bus stop, around areas of the beltway inside d.c., 36, showers and fog and then stormy conditions. but look at how high the temperature is going to be for tomorrow. that's near record warmth. the record for tomorrow is 65 degrees. so it's rain and a lot of wind, too. coming through. with this system during the mid part of the day. there are the showers scattered early part of the day. by noon, 1:00, that's the time period you need to keep an eye on. watch the line of yellow, moderate to heavy rain and even the chance for some thunderstorms, as lauren will have in a few minutes, the areas most at risk. frederick down towards fredericksburg again more moderate to heavy rain. 4:00, 5:00. after 5:00, 6:00, the bigger batch heads out and we'll start clearing out.
4:20 pm
a lot of snow still left on the ground. north and west of d.c., we're expecting a half to as much as an inch of rain throughout our area. and that means the potential for some river flooding. the snow pack north and west, these are the areas of most concern in yellow. leesburg, montgomery county, frederick county. the potomac at edward's ferry, where we could see the potential for river flooding. and the high winds, gusts around 30 to maybe even 40 miles per hour. as we top out again in the low to mid 60s. very warm day coming up tomorrow. then our temperatures as we move forward, 53 degrees on thursday, i think that high temperature will come early in the day. 40s for the end of the week. but we're not done with winter. the other thing we've got coming up in detail for you, is when we could have a little bit of snow back in our area. lauren has that, too, a little later this hour. well it's become as much a part of the super bowl as the game itself -- today advertisers are rushing out sneak peeks to their new game day commercials. ten spots are on youtube.

4:22 pm
