fox chase at 48 degrees. some of the temperatures are warmer, i believe especially around center city. the urban heat island effect. concrete building, things that hold in heat during the day. it takes longer for them to release during the night. the temperatures can't cool as much. i think that's why we're seeing the difference. some of the areas that are more open land in new jersey cooled off overnight. warming today. clear, cool conditions. high pressure will really start to strengthen today. you know i call this the bubble. an area of high pressure that doesn't let anything in. it's a weather pattern that keeps us dry and starts to warm temperatures if it sticks in an area. it will stick for just days as we progress. 70s the forecast for center city. 69 at lansdale. and 69 in kutztown. 71 in trenton. near the 70s for the shore. and same deal in delaware. hour by hour model, we're clear as we go through the day. clear into the night, as well. because of temperatures in the afternoon rising, the

same goes for the southbound side. >> all right. thanks. brave step forward. accusations against a hollywood producer have inspired an a-list actress to share her story of assault and harassment. and keeping bullies at bay. a popular social media site is reworking their hate policy. plus, high hopes for the stock market. we're coming off of a record-breaking day for the dow. what that means for your money and what's in store for today. paulsboro's a very proud community.

new accusations against harvey weinstein and his business partner and brother, bob weinstein. a partner who helped produce a show by the weinstein company said bob weinstein made repeated romantic gestures toward her. his attorney refutes the allegations. harvey weinstein has resigned from the company board after several actresses accused him of rape, assault, and
sexuality. the company fired him as co-chair for the month but he remained on the board until yesterday. weinstein's spokesperson denied allegations of nonconsensual sexual encounters. actress reese witherspoon says the recent scandal prompted her own experiences with assault and harassment to come back "vividly." during the "elle" women in hollywood awards, she said a director assaulted her when she was just 16 years old. she did not name the director. witherspoon says she regrets not speaking up about the experience at the time. 5:24 on this wednesday. new this morning, twitter is vowing to crack down on sexual harassment and hate speech with new policy changes. the site will take actions against people using hate speech or violence. they will delete postings with nonconsensual nude images and make it easier to report unwanted sexual advances.
