5:01 pm
both septa management and the twu local 234 union. no deal yet though. let's go to video right now we can tell you congressman bob brady is now involved in the talks as he often gets involved on labor issues. septa management says that things are moving along but a union spokesperson tells me septa is giving them quote a quarter inch here and a quarter inch there rather than an inch by inch movement. so the union spokesperson says things are moving much slower than they could be and that is that isn't so encouraging to many commuters we spoke with include as kindergartner named william. >> it took me twice as long to get to school this morning. >> it took you twice as long to get to school this morning. >> um-hmm. >> what did you think about th that. >> that was much traffic. >> it takes 15 minutes to get to school. it took us half an hour, um 40 minutes straight through center city.

5:03 pm
hours now. just to gauge how people are dealing with day two of the septa strike. if i had to pick one word, it would be frustrating. case in point right here where we're in spring garden right now. i'll tell you lots of commuters, you know what, they're just trying to make it home. any means necessary. hundreds of thousands just trying to find alternate, alternative means like that guy right there on the bike, we have seen scooter, we've seen segwa segways. we've seen indego bikes all around they're a bike right there. and many have hopped in their cars. but hahnly guys, take look, we tried it. it was literally faster to walk four, five blocks in center city than it was to drive. it's total gridlock all over the place. police have extra traffic duty out tonight but honestly some of the fastest way you get to where you're going biking, walking especially in center city. taxi, uber, lyft drivers doing a booming business. but even finding a cab was
5:04 pm
frustrating challenge as, yes, tempers are beginning to boil over. >> everybody was really, like, jumping each other insulting each other. literally people were jumping into other people's cars and wow it was like mayhem the word is mayhem. >> reporter: and that pretty much sums up. i want to tell you if you see this sign tonight, and you were in center city, you need a ride, flag us down. we are here for you as the sign says. we go there. we're going there. home if you need a ride you see us in center city flag us down. we'll give update at 6:00 o'clock. guys. >> i love it. chris o'connell is going there. >> he's going there. jump in. he'll take you where you need to go. talking about that chris the septa strike greatly limiting public transportation of course in philly much more people are turning to as you heard ride sharing services uber saw 41% increase in riders during rush
5:05 pm
hour since septa workers have been on strike. on monday, uber announced the company will expand its uber pool coverage so that it covers the area around all septa stations. >> sadly they've expanded prices out there as well. for the breaking details on the septa strike, stick with fox29.com 24/7. it was back to montgomery county courtroom today for comedian bill cosby, again. cosbyss lawyers argued that certain evidence in the case shouldn't be allowed in court. >> specifically, a decades old deposition. let's get straight to brad sattin. he's live outside of the montgomery county courthouse in norristown. brad? >> reporter: we are. bill cosby leaving here 15 or 20 minutes ago as you mention the the purpose of this hearing real toll prepare for the trial to get the details work out what testimony will be allowed. whether some of the victims will be allowed to testify. whether they should be life or maybe recorded. we're also hearing that the trial date could potentially move right now it is set for early june but if things speed along it could be before that. meanwhile the defense is arguing that even having this trial
5:06 pm
violates bill cosby's rights. at the heart of today's pretrial hearing whether bill cosby constitutional rights are being violated by bringing the 79-year-old entertainer to trial 12 years after his alleged drugging and sexual assault of former temple university employee andrea constand. prosecutors call it farfetched, but cosby's defense argued there was a verbal deal made back then with da bruce castor who agreed not to charge cosby because of a lack of evidence in he can change for cosby's deposition in a civil case against him. it's cosby's admission of drugs and extra marital affairs in that deposition only recently made public that prosecutors now want jurors to hear. but the defense argues this is only coming to light now because district attorney kevin steele campaign on the cosby allegations that helped him to get elected and quote he made promises he's got to deliver. but gloria allred who represents some of the women accusing cosby says the judge is challenging
5:07 pm
claims like that. >> the court correctly pointed out that when the case was actually filed, he was not the da at the time. it was district attorney furman. >> prosecution says the case is moving forward because of new evidence including new accusers. but some of the alleged incidents happened decades ago so the defense is also fighting to keep those 13 women from testifying. and another issue is cosby's eye site. the defense says he's legally blind and can't wage a fair fight if he can't see old faces or photos to jog his memory but prosecutors question if he's really totally blind. >> the judge explored all these legal issues. we've briefed him. we've argued them. and we're hopeful that in the next set of hearings to come, um, we will be able to successfully resolve this case in a way that gives mr. cosby some justice. >> reporter: now one point during the morning session bill cosby did appear slightly disoriented. they took a short break. he seemed fine the rest of the afternoon and actually waived to
5:08 pm
folks and smiled as he left here. the neck hearing is set for next month. again the trial as it stands right now is set for early june. lucy. >> all right, thanks much, brad. checking in with your fox 29 weather authority. you know when you walked outside today, maybe for a split second, you might have forgot it's november. right? >> you can have. look at wilmington right now beautiful in the 70s today. i know that iain was very sad he was not golfing today. kathy orr. >> i hope he plans tomorrow. >> i. to around 11am. >> tomorrow will be even more beautiful than today. but look at this gorgeous picture. yes, the colors so beautiful out there. this is old city philadelphia one who've favorite places feel so blessed to be working in old city. atlantic city 73 today. today's highs ranged from 73 to skate in wilmington look at philadelphia we made it to 70. thought we'd get a little bit warmer that's still good for this time year. reading and allentown 71. trenton 72 degrees. not too bad for the beginning of

5:33 pm
>> we've been talking about warm temperatures since may and it seems like this warm weather isn't going to linger through the month of november. take a look at today's high temperatures. 70s across the board with the exception of wilmington but 73 in ac. trenton 72. allentown and reading even warmer than philadelphia today. now we're not going to hold on to the 70's but the average high is around 61 and we'll be there through most of the next week. ultimate doppler showing some high clouds filtering in. we do have a front that's going to be approaching from the west. it's a little bit ahead of schedule. so i think by about noon, 1:00 o'clock even in philadelphia we can be seeing some showers tomorrow. so enjoy the warmth and the dry weather while we have it outside looking good out there right now with partly cloudy sky and a temperature of 68 degrees. winds out of the south southwest at 9 miles an hour and tomorrow will be the peak of the warmth across the delaware valley. 60s throughout good part of the keystone state. some 70s through maryland and look at the 80s in charlottesville.
5:34 pm
pretty impressive temperatures, and in western pa, looking good as well. but you can see where the cold air is already moved in rochester new york and toronto with temperatures falling through the 60s and into the 5 50s. high pressure builds off the coast tomorrow we call this our surface map shows surface features. tomorrow near record warmth ahead of this front once the front passes through much cooler air will be building in for friday back to seasonal levels and fare weather high pressure will build in with clear skies and light winds. it just won't be quite as warm as we will see during the day tomorrow. scott has been going through the numbers are. here we go again, scott, more records to break. >> more possible records, kathy, and we continue to ride that roller coaster across the area. as we look at what's happening right now on ultimate doppler still out ahead of that front those winds are out of the south and west. so for tonight, it will stay mild but let's talk a little bit about the near record warmth that we expect over the next several days. of course, we are keeping tabs on the timing of those clouds
5:35 pm
and also that frontal boundary that will be moving through. but talk about a surge in those temperatures. nearing 80 degrees by tomorrow and parts of the area. in fact those records to beat across the area, 80 is the record tomorrow in philadelphia. reading 79. i think we'll come pretty close in places like atlantic city and also wilmington but once again, we're watching the clouds and we're watching that front. so by tomorrow morning, we're looking at temperatures in the upper 50's low 60s this is 10:00 o'clock in the morning. already places like dover, 66. 66 in atlantic city. and then watch what happens out ahead of that front. temperatures right along the i-95 corridor mid to upper 70s, but hyped that front, later on tomorrow evening, we're watching those temperatures fall across parts of the area. and that will bring chilly changes for the latter part of the week. so tomorrow near 80 and then look at friday into saturday. kathy? >> it's am like when you're younger you went psych.
5:36 pm
right? temperatures so warm for part of the day and then the second half of the day almost like a different season. as we look ahead tonight overnight in the city temperatures will not be falling that much. around 60. 55 in the suburbs. during the day tomorrow, the high 78 degrees. but as scott showed you an early high and by the afternoon temperatures will be falling. of course we go back to standard time early sunday morning turn that clock back one hour because we are going to gain an hour sleep but of course the sun will set an hour earlier. still i don't know how i feel about that. look at the seven day forecast from your weather authority. looking cooler for friday and breezy. saturday 57. sunday 59. and then temperatures back around 60 degrees next week. but notice, sunshine friday through wednesday. you can't beat that. haunted hay rides, getting ready for thanksgiving. lucy will be shopping. it's all good.
