sunshine, all due to that frontal boundary passing east of us. 54 by 11:00 a.m. and the lehigh valley, also seeing really nice conditions all day long. as far as sunshine goes, that's not going to be an issue for today. we have slightly cooler temperatures than we did feel yesterday. again at the bottom of your screen, you'll see your local neighborhood forecast. look at this weekend, amazing, lots of sunshine, friday and saturday. we do have that frost advisory in effect overnight tonight into tomorrow morning. so certainly a chilly start for your saturday morning and then by sunday, we see a few extra clouds. temperatures warming up. we're seeing 70s as the expected high temperatures. that's the average. of course if you follow us on social media ç@nbcphiladelphia you'll find more information and coming up in just a bit, i do have your 10 day on 10. back to you. >> we'll see you then, erika. thanks so much. 4:41 on this friday. we're less than a month away from election day. there are new concerns about voting in pennsylvania. >> technology could play a role for the battleground state.

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.
now on this friday. here's a live look down broad street from our kimmel center campus camera. just about 51 degrees this morning in center city philadelphia. we have a cool, crisp day ahead of us. meteorologist erika martin will have the details throughout the morning. decision 2016, donald trump is defending himself from allegations of sexual misconduct. >> the republican presidential nominee says the media and hillary clinton's campaign are conspireing to do his bid to win the white house. trump emphasized that at a rally
yesterday in florida and ohio. trump declared himself the victim of a smear campaign after several women accused him this week of inappropriate behavior in the past. >> i don't even know who they are. they made up stories, filed right before the election. right before the election. >> campaigning for hillary clinton in new hampshire yesterday, first lady michelle obama took aim at trump's comments on tape. she said, you can hear him bracking abobrack ing -- bragging about sexual assault. >> it is cruel. it's frightening and the truth is, it hurts. now is the time for all of us to stand up and say, enough is enough. >> you may remember the first lady made her first speech backing clinton at the dnc in philadelphia. we now know hillary clinton's responses to written questions posed by a conservative legal group. in sworn testimony revealed yesterday, the democratic
nominee said nearly two dozen times she could not recall key details about her use of a private e-mail server during her time as secretary of state. the group judicial watch filed lawsuits requesting government documents from clinton's tenure at the state department. we're just now 25 days away from the election. and the way pennsylvania handles voting, it's raising questions for some in this battleground state. pennsylvania is one of 15 states that uses electronic voting machines that do not have a paper record of the vote. about two-thirds of the state votes on those machines. trump has raised questions about voter fraud, particularly in the philadelphia area. if there are allegations of that, the lack of a paper trail would complicate things in the case of a recount. >> if you end up in a close election and have a jurisdiction where there is no paper ballot of record, what will you do? >> i think those concerns would be unfounded because the risk of that happening is very low. >> the clinton campaign is accusing its opponent of trying
to cast doubt to depress the vote and undermine the election. the third and final presidential debate is next wednesday. it will take place at the university of nevada in las vegas. i'll be there and i'll have live reports next week from vegas. this one's been a talker. after more than a decade, a sign at geno steaks that asks customers to order in english is now again. geno vento has run the stand since his mother and father passed away a few years back. his dad joey grabbed national attention in 2006 when he put up the controversial sign. a few weeks ago, geno quietly took it down. he spoke exclusively to nbc 10 about his decision. >> i want everybody to come here and enjoy a cheese steak. that's what it comes down to. the way i do is differently. >> some latinos tell us they do not plan to eat at geno's. they think taking down the sign was a business move. geno insists it's not. a new executive director
will take over at new jersey transit. >> the agency's board voted back in july before the deadly appoint steve santoro. he's been a long-time capital projects boss at new jersey transit. an investigation revealed new jersey transit has been involved in more than 150 accidents since 2011. the ap also found the agency paid more fines for safety violations than any other commuter railroad in the country over the past five years. last month, a rush hour train slammed into the hoboken train terminal, killing a woman and injuring more than 100 other people. this morning, we have new details about the investigation into that september 29th crash. heavy damage to the front of that commuter train is hampering the investigation. the national transportation safety board says the electronics controlling the train's brakeses and propulsion system were destroyed in the crash. the ntsb has scheduled more testing. 4:48 right now on this

was one year old, i was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer on my spinal chord. but i spent my whole life fighting back. so you can imagine what i thought when i saw donald trump say...
