quick look at storm scan three shows a front out west producing severe thunderstorms over north central pennsylvani pennsylvania, williamsport area around interstate 80 staying away from us for now. you can see trajectory for this front. it's an interesting setup. we have the front and it looks again robust with lots of rain. this will start to tilt negatively and we'll see it really take almost a south to north shape tomorrow. very, very slow progress and continues to guilt and will rotate out during the day saturday. this is not a quick hitting front sometimes a line of thunderstorms and showers come through and this hangs around a little while, late tomorrow to first part of saturday. in the meantime, temperatures still made outside, 68 atlantic city. and cape may at the airport in philadelphia just dropped below 70 mark midnight and in reading at the whitfield elementary school 59. big temperatures swings. characterized by average high
65. how do we get averages, highs and lows. and not a record today but by saturday season's coldest air arrives in philadelphia. >> and it will do so with wet weather that is starting to move in along that same front and also very strong gusty winds. that didn't want to load for me but i tell you tomorrow after into saturday morning scattered showers and pockets of steadier rain and wind picking up saturday at noon winds will gust, 30 u. 35 miles in an power. tomorrow afternoon feels mitd to upper 70s. one the front comes through saturday 11 a.m. feels 30s and 40s and does not feel better than low to mid 40s all day saturday thanks to the wind and showers. overnight cloudy and mild with areas of fog. for tomorrow morning fog giving way to scattered showers in the afternoon and evening. tomorrow is still mild. like we said, 74. about ten above average and saturday 58. that is totally misleading.
it won't feel warmer than 145 at any point during the day. whipped, surround is betser for eagles game and monday nice and tuesday. wednesday, highs in the 50s. >> it will kick in soon. >> summer flirtation is over. >> i'm over the winter alread already. >> come on, don. >> who is this man. >> hockey weather. >> we'll talk about the fliers as well. it was not typical home on for fly guys. why tonight's game was social for orange and black and fans in the stands.
afoot and light-hearted i take to the open road. healthy, free, the world before me, the long brown path before me leading wherever i choose. the east and the west are mine. the north and the south are mine. all seems beautiful to me. >> 1966 it all started for the flyers. the team celebrating its 50th anniversary during home-opener against the anaheim ducks.
the game a pregame ceremony by the team honoring all those flyers that pass away in the 50 years of franchise. but also honoring founder, ed snyder. raising name to raft terz his seat in owners box left vaikd. now for the game. second period. we go. flyers down 1-0. wayne simmonds third of the year and we're tied at one. later in the period. fly guy striking again this time matt read, there you are, with your fourth goal of the year. 2-1 flyers game tied in the third. and ducks it's ryan garbett if if i canning up first goal of surprise and buzz kill in south philadelphia. flyers lose tonight 3-9 fine wall to regulation losses in the aa row for the flyers. >> two too many. you lose one game you should be able to hopefully turn it off. we're in a little hole there's no need to papic here. >> we're plague good hockey
tonight. there's things we can do bette better. we wake up tomorrow and get going with a confident group and it's a tough game fwrun saturday and we have to get our foyk us on inside information. espionage. these are things that can get you behind bars for a long tim time. nfl, not so much. players that changed teams are ovrp intear gated and new squad wants all the information they can get on old team bradford knows doug pederson's system. remember he was named starter until traded 8 days before the season. is he giving vikings information on the bird. no. is it an issue. a in ah. >> he could focus on all our keep edges.
you're so focused on your job as an individual and you don't want to take away. you go out there and compete and perform at a high level. i'm pretty sure he's focused on next few. >> or here's the play book, here you go. >> i did not realize that. that made sense. >> dlots that sholly. >> how is me new. >> a twiingt cruise nights
and so when i
saw that, that was completely disqualifying. i'm a republican, but this election is so much bigger than party. my son max can't live in trump world. so i'm crossing party lines and voting for hillary. i don't always agree with her, but she's reasonable. and she's smart. she can work with people to solve problems. i want to be able to tell my kids that i did the right thing when it really mattered. i'm hillary clinton and i approve this message.
i've always taken on the status quo. in harrisburg, they didn't like it when i stopped their perks and pushed for reform. as head of pennsylvania's third-largest county, i cut out wall street middlemen to protect pensions. now, as chairman of the pennsylvania commission on crime, i'm leading the fight to stop the epidemic of heroin and opioid abuse. as attorney general, i'll prosecute anyone who scams our seniors. and i'll hold the oil and gas companies accountable to keep our drinking water safe. i'm josh shapiro. i'll be an attorney general who always fights for you.
>> college takes a a pink mraer in the fight for breast cancer. . the pink light is remind to schedule a mammogram. this pink toyota camary was there tonight. all october long when you see the pink camary snap a selfie and share via facebook, instagram or twitter using #pinktoyota. for every photo shared they'll donate $1 to susan komen up top 5 sglous wul trade the short sleeves for swaert shirts this weekend. look at highs on saturday in poconos. only in the 40s all day long it will feel like 30s moist of the day. in city high of 68 feel no
afoot and light-hearted i take to the open road. healthy, free, the world before
me, the long brown path before me leading wherever i choose. the east and the west are mine. the north and the south are mine. all seems beautiful to me. when government bureaucrats refused to approve a cancer vaccine equally for both girls and boys, i stepped in to change that rule. when my own party held up recovery funds after sandy hit us, i took them on and won. and when veterans were forced to travel out of state for health care, i brought in new local clinics and expanded services. but there's much more to do. my mission is to protect south jersey's way of life. i'm frank lobiondo and i approve this message.
i would support legislation in pennsylvania that would ban abortion and i would suggest we have penalties for doctors who perform them. would you put people in jail for performing abortions? at some point doctors performing abortions i think would be subject to that sort of penalty. dscc is responsible for the content of this advertising.

>> something about a guest who isn't going to say what it says. >> say it! >> stephen: it says you're uncool. >> this is a vintage sweater. i challenge you to settle this like gentlemen! ♪ ♪ ( shouting ) (two months later) >> stephen: elijah, great to have you on the show. >> i've been here a couple times, stephen. >> stephen: are you sure? >> remember i was on that one time, and then i came on again and we argued about you not remembering the first time? >> stephen: no, sorry. >> and then we jousted? >> stephen: uhhhh... no. >> you still have a lance sticking out of your gut.
>> stephen: that's always been there. >> announcer: it's "the late show" with stephen colbert! tonight stephen welcomes tiger woods, elijah wood and jorge ramos, featuring jon batiste and "stay human." and, now, live on tape from the ed sullivan theater in new york city, it's stephen colbert! ( cheers and applause ) ♪ >> stephen: hey! thank you, everybody! ( cheers and applause ) ♪ >> stephen: jon batiste, everybody! ( cheers and applause )
welcome to "the late show"! thank you so much! good to see you! ( piano riff ) hi, everybody! thank you so much! awfully nice. awfully nice. ( cheers and applause ) thank you so much. welcome to "the late show." i'm stephen colbert. everybody feeling all right? ( cheering ) >> stephen: thank you so much for your energy. we have a trump hangover. we are all still recovering from last night's third and final debate, if there is a god. now, everybody's wondering who won. well, cnn named the winner hours before the debate began. they say it was excedrin, for their tweet, "the possibility of a debate headache is high, be prepared with excedrin."
cute. of course, after watching the debate, we know the real winner was: "nyquil-- sweet darkness of sleep, it's your only escape." the polls say clinton won, but trump is no longer accepting the polls or really anything else because this is what he said. last night, when chris wallace asked him if he would accept the election results. >> what i'm saying is that, i'll tell you at the time. i'll keep you in suspense. >> stephen: yes, suspense. that's presidential. it reminds me of fdr's first inaugaral -- >> the only thing we have to fear is... stay tuned to find out! ( dramatic music ) >> stephen: yeah! yeah! got chills. didn't know. didn't know.
spoiler alert. it was nazis. ( laughter ) now, a lot of people say not promising to accept the results disqualifies trump from the presidency. so, today, trump assured voters that he believes in the peaceful transfer of power. >> ladies and gentlemen, i want to make a major announcement today. i would like to promise and pledge to all of my voters and supporters and to all of the people of the united states that i will totally accept the results of this great and historic presidential election. if... i... win. ( audience reacts )
>> stephen: ha-ha! oh, come on! you got to give it to him! you know, you really got me for a second there! i actually believed you had a shred of integrity. what an amazing psych-out. it's like that classic joke where you offer to shake somebody's hand, but when they go to shake it, you undermine our system of government. ( laughter ) so, how did we get to the point where the fate of the american experiment rests in donald trump's tiny, whining, loser hands? ( cheers and applause ) truly. truly, the (bleep) has grabbed us. ( laughter )
( cheers and applause ) watch it. and undermining 250 years of representative democracy to protect his ego wasn't trump's only contribution to the debate. listen to what he said about mexican immigrants. >> we're going to get them out and secure the border and, once the border is secured, at a later date, we'll make a determination as to the rest. but we have some bad hombres here, and we're gonna get them out. >> stephen: yeah, bad hombres. i think he thinks he's running for sheriff. we got hombres, mu chachos, compadres, quesadillas. ( laughter ) i am actually kind of surprised that trump didn't do better because he prepared. trump held practice debates with chris christie playing the role of hillary clinton. so trump was ready, if hillary started weeping quietly while she handed him his mcdonald's order.
of course, hillary also had her moments. here's what she said about her tax plans -- >> we are going to go where the money is. >> stephen: and she knows where the money is. it's where she gives her speeches. now, say hello to jon batiste and stay human, everybody. ♪ ( cheers and applause ) >> stephen: yeah! ( cheers and applause ) >> stephen: oh, well, it's been an upsetting campaign, hasn't it, jon? >> we have to deal with it, but it's only four years. >> stephen: we're just a few weeks from election day which means it's time for every american to perform their civic
duty, threatening to move to canada if their candidate doesn't win. this happens every four years. canada is like america's safety school. i thought, what would it take if you wanted to move to canada. jim? i met with toronto-based canadian immigration lawyer, andrew cumming, to find out how to turn over a new maple leaf. thanks so much for talking to me today. >> pleasure to meet you. >> stephen: so what do we got here? ask away, on behalf of my audience. >> so, your name, exactly as it appears on your passport. >> stephen: it's stephen colbert. c-o-l-b-e-r-t. >> stephen, do you have any nicknames? >> stephen: oh, let's see: steve, steve-a-rino, eightball, hambone, brangelina. >> stephen, how old are you? >> stephen: how old do you think i am? don't worry about my feelings.

duty. ( laughter ) don't laugh. ( applause ) ly spend eight -- i will spend eight hours a day, get a 30 minute lunch break, be in my reclining grandpa chair playing. i thought i was good because i got through the campaigns, no big deal, and went online. when 7-year-olds are beating you from around the world, humbling. >> stephen: time to stop. by the way, i like the beard. >> talk about three -- took about three and a half months to grow. >> stephen: really? you look like tiger woods' evil twin right now. you can psych out your opponent with that. >> i'm half asian, so it doesn't quite fill in through here. but i can get this thing going. >> stephen: okay. something like that. >> get a little twirl to it, yeah. >> stephen: i have to ask you one question about your ex-wife. you told "time magazine," less than a year ago, that she is one of your best friends.
