5:02 pm
nbc10 chief meteorologist glenn "hurricane" schwartz is here. just a brief taste of spring. >> that's right. the temperature will actually be rising some tonight. tomorrow some places are going to reach 70. but it's not going to last. we have a lot of clouds out there right now, but not a lot of rain. we saw this rain earlier with a band of showers that improved. now we have a few more light showers about to move into the area. you can see lancaster county berks county lehigh valley getting it now. just about to move into chester and upper montgomery and upper erper er bucks. still haven't reached 40 in allentown and reading. you'll get a whole lot warmer than that tomorrow. 53 in georgetown delaware. sign of things to come. there's plenty of warm air to the south. as we go through the night tonight, once in a while you see these green blips, a little mist, a little fog. and the temperature's on the
5:03 pm
rise. especially in delaware. look at this. as we go into tomorrow morning, 57 in dover. and then it's up from there, along with the showers. more on the timing of the rain tomorrow, thunderstorms, too, and how warm it's going to get with the seven-day in a few minutes. you think you and i were surprised here well, chip kelly didn't just shock eagle fans and players when he shook up the team with big off-season moves. >> his fellow coaches say they didn't even see the changes coming. john clark is in phoenix, arizona. chip kelly talked about his controversial moves today. >> reporter: i tell you what just being out here all week at the nfl owners meetings, owners and coaches were shocked and stunned by what chip kelly did with the eagles, sending away or trading away a lot of his most popular, high-profile, pro bowl players, especially on offense. let's take a look at chip as he sat down at the breakfast and writers and media. he met with us for about an
5:04 pm
hour. chip doesn't really look forward to this too much. he said it's like his yearly dentist appointment. he did give us good information. first of all you know he traded away nick foles. and chip today said he did not want to deal away his quarterback nick foles. he loves sam bradford and he thinks sam bradford can be the new franchise quarterback of the eagles. he, of course, got him from st. louis in the trade. sam bradford has torn up his knee the last two years. and chip kelly says he wanted to have sam bradford nick foles and mark sanchez. >> we were trying to keep nick but at the last second they wanted a play. we were trying to get it done but it didn't work out that way. >> i would say it's probably easier for a quarterback with a knee injury than it is a-w a shoulder injury as we went through the history of it. you know we didn't bring sam to run the ball 75 times a game. i think it's a lot easier for a quarterback with an acl than a receiver with an acl.
5:05 pm
you look at the history right now in terms of sports science and what doctors are doing now, it's unbelievable. >> yes, so chip kelly has taken a big risk by going with sam bradford, who has really missed the last season and a half with those two torn knees. as you heard him, he thinks it's es esasier for a quarterback to play through that. he's hoping sam bradford can do the same. we'll have a lot more on eagles' economics and chip kelly now having to do with the salary cap and why he really let go of lesean mccoy and trade him to buffalo. that's at 6:00. i'm john clark. back to you. the smell of burning rubber and plumes of smoke, that's what people in and around bethlehem woke up to because of this fire at an industrial fire across

5:07 pm
along with pennsylvania's department of environmental protection and emergency management. when asked if the fire was suspicious, the chief told us, they'll be on scene here for at least another 24 hours. not only monitoring the environmental conditions but also trying to determine what caused the inferno at this warehouse. mow neection braxton, "nbc10 news." to this now -- keeping police brutality off philadelphia's streets. an executive order from the mayor today aims to do just that. the order establishes a new civilian oversight board to improve training investigations and community relations. mayor michael nutter says the board will also supervise the police department and report back to him. the justice department revealed 91 recommendations in a report monday issued by police commissioner ramsey. the mayor says the city averages 50 police-involved shootings per year. >> the officers cannot just drive around in their cars with little to no interaction with
5:08 pm

now to a developing story. freed american hostage bowe bergdahl is being charged with
5:13 pm
de desertion. he left his post in afghanistan and captured by the taliban. he was held for five years before being released in a prisoner exchange. the charge of endangering fellow soldiers carries a strong penalty. >> carries a maximum potential penalty of a dishonorable discharge, reduction to the rank of e-1, total forfeiture of all allowances and possible confinement for life. >> bergdahl is currently working a desk jop at ft. sam houston in texas. a hearing will be held to determine if a court-martial should begin. in the war against middle east extremism, there is aback for america. >> the president of yemen is reportedly running for his life. that story now from nbc10 national correspondent steve handelsman. >> reporter: with yemen's port city of aden under attack by rebels, president haddi reportedly fled though his
5:14 pm
loyalists denied it. he had been a u.s. ally against al qaeda. >> the violent takeover of yemen by an armed faction is unacceptable. >> reporter: u.s. officials finally agreed to bomb sending u.s. pilots to fly air cover for anti-isis militias run by iran and adding to the irony, it's iran yeahs. that complicates u.s. nuclear talks with iran which in turn damaged u.s. relations with israeli prime minister netanyahu. three weeks after the israeli's controversial address to congress, the president of afghanistan ashraf ghani today got a rousing reception. he lived in new york. he was there for 9/11. that was planned in afghanistan. now despite a taliban comeback and isis moving in, ghani says most afghans reject extremism. >> we are willing to speak truth to terror.
5:15 pm
>> reporter: 10,000 u.s. troops will remain this year. >> thank you for staying. >> reporter: ghani's nation is no longer ground zero in the war on terror. but terror's not dead. instead, it's spread. and now yemen looks wide open. the middle east factions that fight one another but agree, america is the enemy. i'm steve handelsman, nbc news, washington. watch "nbc nightly news" at 6:30 for more on afghanistan and the decision to charge bowe bergdahl with desertion. the fbi is told to speed up the pace when it comes to fighting terrorism. it's part of a new report by members of the 9/11 review commission. the report says the fbi needs to improve its analysis and collection of intelligence. it calls on congress to provide the agency with state-of-the-art tools it needs to fight terrorism around the world. it will be friday before we learn the decision from italy's top court on amanda knox's murder conviction. the panel of judges will decide
5:16 pm
whether to uphold the guilty verdict from the most recent appeal or send the trial back to yet another appeal. knox and her boyfriend were found initially guilty for the murder of her roommate in 2007. they were then acquitted and freed after nearly four years in prison. last year an italian appeals court upheld the original guilty verdict. knox and her boyfriend have maintained their innocence. a pennsylvania father is one of supporters of a new bill in washington to legalize hemp oil. families and lawmakers rallied outside the capitol today. the oil is only available in california, colorado and virginia. it is made from marijuana but with very low levels of thc, the element that makes people high. it helps stop seizures. one mother says her 8-year-old girl went from having 1200 seizures a month to about two with hemp oil. a pennsylvania family says this oil could give them a fighting chance. >> it's tough to live a life, you know. we just saw her develop when she
5:17 pm
had some seizure control, when she was on the one medication that worked that we had to pull. we want that back. >> congressman scott perry, a republican from pennsylvania introduced the bill to legalize hemp oil. a push on capitol hill today for a new drug that's being called a game-changer for those living with lou gehrig's disease. they delivered a petition with 270,000 signatures they hope to pressure the fda to fast-track the drug. they say drug trials show promise. if the drug doesn't get accelerated approval it could be years before patients have access to it. >> could wait for two years for a lengthy phase three trial, but in that time most of this generation of als patients will pass away. so, to me the risk of inaction is greater than the risk of action.
5:18 pm
>> right now there's one medicine available that extends the life expectancy for patients but only by a few months. this group says it needs other options. you know the saying better late than never. well a library book missing for nearly 50 years has been returned to its home in albuquerque, new mexico. the book was checked out in 1966 and wasn't seen again until late last month when someone returned it anonymously. it is a self-help book for people who want to learn italian. library officials hope it's been put to good use all these years. >> the people who borrowed it were able to learn italian. and perhaps go on a fabulous trip. we of course, have no idea who borrowed it. >> how can you imagine with that late fee would have been? all records that show who checked the book out are long gone and the library stopped charging fines 25 years ago. they would have been fined if
5:19 pm
they were still charged at five cents a day, the late fee for this book would be $8,000. ouch. sounds like a "seinfeld" episode. in fact, it was a "seinfeld" episode. one of great ones. we have some not so great weather around. drizzle and fog overnight tonight after some showers today. we've got a brief warm-up tomorrow we've been talking about for a long time. and, also, thunderstorms for thursday night. just before it gets cold again. right now, we've got cloudy skies. 45 degrees. the wind only 7 miles an hour. and we still have not hit 40 degrees in reading and allentown. and not even close at mt. pocono. farther to the south, mostly in the 40s until you get to extreme southern delaware where it's in the 50s.
