close eye on that offensive line this weekend for sure. a familiar name to keep an eye on, desean jackson, he's a free agent after this season by the way. the last couple days a lot of the conversation has been on, huh, i wonder if he would make a return to the eagles later this year. that's still to be seen. we will take on desean jackson and the washington redskins this weekend. one of the big things to keep an eye on when you're paying attention to the redskins, they could be without one of their biggest weapons in jordan reed. he is in concussion protocol right now. his sixth concussion in the last few years. it's still unclear if he's going to be ready to go for gametime on sunday. regardless, guys, the eagles trying to get that win, that first division win. we have a lot coming up on "broadcast on broad" at 7:00. >> thank you, jillian. john clark recently travelled to north dakota to give you a look into carson wentz's early life before he became an eagle.

frost is definitely an issue, especially early tomorrow morning. lows in the 30s and 40s. clear skies on saturday, calm wind. current wind profile, notice this northerly push, which is why it's chillier. considering we don't have the clouds to keep us blanketed or warmer. right now, the suburbs averaging in the upper 30s for you. lehigh valley 44. delaware upper 40s and upper 40s for philadelphia. this is how your day times out. pretty pleasant all around. lots of sunshine by noon. 58 degrees, still that northerly push. 2:00 p.m., 61 for you. jersey shore, seeing extra clouds develop later in the day. otherwise, a pleasant day to say the least. overall, i think we have a nice stretch of weather, at least until monday when i'm tracking responsible for scattered showers. your day for the suburbs, 66 by noon and plenty of sunshine. future temperatures i can't emphasize this enough. it is going to be very chilly tonight into tomorrow. especially for the lehigh valley. notice these temperatures

[ laughter ]
but pat toomey actually owned a bank. most people owe the bank. and when he went to washington, he voted to change
the laws... to benefit wall street and banks like his. voting to gut consumer protections that crack down... on predatory lending and fraud. to take money from you and... line the pockets of wall street millionaires like... himself. pat toomey: out for himself, all in for wall street. dscc is responsible for the content of this advertising.
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 to supporters at a rally in ohio last night. there he declared himself the victim of a smear campaign after women accused him of inappropriate behavior in the past. >> i don't even know who they are. they're made up stories, filed right before the election, right before the election. >> meantime, michelle obama campaigned for hillary clinton in new hampshire yesterday. the first lady took aim at trump's comments on tape. she says you canç hear him 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. >> with just a few months ago when 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 about i a conservative legal group. in sworn testimony revealed yesterday, 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 the state department. in one of the e-mails, a top clinton aide wrote of catholic conservative, quote, i imagine they think is the most socially acceptable politically conservative religion. their rich friends wouldn't understand if they became
evangelicals. the e-mail has not been authenticated by nbc news. the aide told reporters she's a catholic and doesn't recognize the e-mail in question. in his weekly column, archbishop charles chaput wrote, it would be wonderful for the clinton campaign to repudiate the consent of these e-mails. we are now 25 days away from the election and the way pennsylvania handles voting is raising some concerns in this key battleground state. let me explain. pennsylvania is one of $15 states that use electronic voting machines that do not have a paper record of the vote. about two-thirds of the state votes on those machines. trump raised concerns about voter fraud, particularly in philadelphia where the 2012 republican nominee, marco rubio received no votes in 59 voting divisions. if there are allegations of that this time around, the lack of a
paper trail could complicate matters in the case of a recount. >> if you end up in a close election and you have a jurisdiction where there is no paper ballot of record, what would you do? >> i think those concerns would be unfound 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 under-myron the election. the third and final presidential debate is next wednesday. it will take place at the university of nevada in las vegas. my colleague, lauren mayk, will be following it up aand have live reports beginning next week from las vegas. after more then a decade, a sign at geno's steaks that asked customers to order in english is now gone. geno vento has run the iconic philly cheese steak stand since his mother and father passed away a few years ago. his dad grabbed national attention in 2006 when he put up the controversial sign. a few weeks ago, geno quietly
took it down.ç he spoke exclusively to nbc 10 about his decision. >> i want everyone to come here and enjoy a cheese steak. >> some latinos tell us they don't plan to eat at geno's. they think taking down the sign was a business move. geno insists it is not. just about ten minutes until 6:00 right now on this friday. i think anybody who has been holding on this their summer clothes should be putting it back in the closet. >> we do have warmer temperatures n week. i'll show you the 10 day on 10. however, today, a chilly start. we saw upper 30s, some 40s and the thing is tonight into tomorrow, it's going to get colder, rosemary and lauren. be mindful of that. current temperatures, 49 degrees in philadelphia, allentown, 44 for you. coastal 46. atlantic city, 44. here's the deal. i'll show you in just one moment, overnight lows into tomorrow will be chillier. you will see the local neighborhood forecast. this is why conditions are cooler this morning.
cold front is to the east of us. notice not much going on right now. we'd ideally like clouds to keep us warmer. we don't have anything right now. this is why we have a cool morning in the forecast. wildwood, new jersey, clear skies, that's the story for today. and neighborhoods pretty much in the 60s. lots of sunshine. so get those sunglasses out, because you will need them. a bright day ahead. easton, 64 degrees. newtown 64. averaging out pretty much in the 60s for philadelphia. fairmount 65, byberry, 66 for you, haddonfield, 65, glassboro 64. trending in the 60s for today and tomorrow. then seeing 70s by sunday. as i mentioned to lauren and rosemary, we may see upper 70s by next tuesday into wednesday. neighborhoods today also include dover at 63. rehoboth beach at 61 and wilmington warmer at 67 degrees. why not show you hour by hour forecasts. there's not much going on. other than a couple of clouds
moving on through. really just a quiet day, a quiet stretch in the forecast. at least through monday, but i'm tracking the potential for some scattered showers. i want to show you future temperatures, really important for tonight into tomorrow. we have calm winds, cooler temperatures, of course, prime ingredients for some frost to start to develop. patchy frost for most of the area. in fact, i'd say for all of the delaware valley, starting at midnight, 43 degrees. that's your expected temperature. trenton 46 and swedesboro, 48 degrees. as i pause this tomorrow morning at 5:00 a.m., upper 30s for allentown. 39 for pottstown. doylestown, 42 degrees. coming up in just a bit, i'll get to my 10 day on 10. lots more to talk about. tracking the potential for some systems to possibly make it here by next thursday into friday. jessica? 5:51 right now on this friday. we'll send it over to jessica boyington. what are the traffic cameras showing you. >> we're watching through center
city, the vine street expressway, not dealing with the construction. we're about an hour past that cleanup. we're looking at 8th street. the westbound lanes, headed towards the schuylkill expressway. near 95, no problems or deéa6m yet. we're still 45 minutes or an hour away from seeing is the big delays. a few accidents, one in plymouth, plymouth road and falcon way. another crash on shady lane and pine road. watch for those. also that disabled vehicle where the right lane was earlier blocked on the boulevard northbound between ridge avenue and fox street has cleared out of the way. rosemary and lauren. a highly anticipated store is opening in philadelphia today. we'll tell you why there's so much hype around this new whole foods. what these montgomery county officers did to help save a man's life and keep their community safe.
do you own a plane? do you own a bank? pat toomey owned both. but it's the fact that toomey owns a seat in the u.s. senate that should really concern us. while on the senate banking committee, pat toomey voted to rewrite rules
to help bankers like him ...and he tried to eliminate protections put in place to stop wall street's risky practices.
pat toomey: looking out for wall street and himself, not pennsylvania.
