>> we're enjoying bright sunny day, also challenging a record in the temperature department. will today be one for the record books? let's get first look at the forecast with meteorologist, katie fehlinger, liver outside on the cbs-3 skydeck, hey, katy? >> jim, it will be awfully close, tell you that much. the record is in fact 85 degrees, but we're going to do a lot of flirtation with that number here today looks like. i can tell you it feels so warm outside right now. not terribly humid. it is october after all. but, in the days ahead we'll likely see some of the humidity ramp up on us. just nice sort of indian summer kind of afternoon. that's unfolding for us. and it is very bright, sunny outside, too. let me show you storm scan. well, at this point, it is working over time. nothing to see here, folks. let's move on. meanwhile our temperatures are already on pace to get close to 80, probably over the next hour or two, but here is the record to beat. not just today but tomorrow as well. today's record high is 85. that was set more than a century ago. so it will be a tough number to break. again, we will come close.
eighty is the number to beat tomorrow. and likely has a better chance, in fact, to be broken. here's where we stand right now. upper 70s currently to be reported up and down some of the shore points, down into dover, 76 currently at philadelphia international airport. so it is a very mild beginning to the afternoon obviously, substancially above average here. remember the normal high on this particular day is 66 degrees. so, do the math in your head, yes, very warm for the standards, make the most of it, if you like me, you like this warmth. i know brooke loves t get out while you have the opportunity. down the road here these temperatures do begin to take a tumble to the point that we're even below average. so, something for everyone in this forecast. today, a nice, warm afternoon, guys, we send it back into you. >> we definitely take it. >> indeed busy day in campaign 2016. former president bill clinton campaigns this afternoon in montgomery county while his wife, hillary clinton, contends with more hack emails. >> in court craig boswell shows us republican donald
trump sound the alarm over what he calls a rigged election. >> the latest cbs news poll shows hillary clinton with a nine-point lead over donald trump, in a four-way race. that is up from just four points, two weeks ago. but the pole was taken before the latest release of fbi documents related to clinton's e-mail scandal, in particular, an interview with a fbi employee, who says he felt pressured to change the classified e-mail from clinton's server to unclassified, as part of a quid pro quo between the fbi official and under secretary of state, patrick kennedy. in exchange, the employee said state would reciprocate by allowing the fbi to place more agent in countries where they are presently forbidden. the state department says nothing happened. >> really any assertion that this was somehow tit for tat, quid pro quo that manner frankly is insulting. >> this is worse than water grade. >> but trump disagrees. >> this is felony corruption
by any standard, under secretary kennedy needs to resign. >> trump is polling far behind clinton among female likely voters. his numbers are down since several women have come forward claiming he sexually assaulted them. melania trump told cnn her husband is the victim of liberal conspiracy to cause him the election. >> it was access hollywood. it was left wing. and left wing media. >> trump and clinton face-off in their final debate tomorrow night in las vegas. craig boswell, for cbs-3, "eyewitness news". you can see the final presidential debate right here on cbs-3 tomorrow night at 9:00. and as we countdown, we're now just 20 days away from election day. stay with "eyewitness news" for complete coverage of campaign 2016. meantime, there is more fall-out from the late tapes of donald trump's leud conversation with television host billy bush. bush has now been fired by nbc. bush had only been with the

will vote for trump. mcginty and toomey both denounce donald trump's claims pennsylvania is rigged, their second and final debate will be october 24th in philadelphia. well, coming up on cbs-3 "eyewitness news". >> the battle to retake mozul. iraqi forces go house to house hunting down isis fire. we'll have the lathes progress in a report near the front lines. >> and the home of one of the history's most infamous killers is in the news today. more on the legal battle to demolish adolf hitler's house. when we come vo: donald trump and pat toomey anhave plenty in common --. they're both putting pennsylvania women at risk.

toomey would defund planned parenthood. on abortion: trump: "there has to be some form of punishment" toomey: "i would suggest that we have penalties for doctors who
perform them." pat toomey and donald trump: too dangerous for pennsylvania women. i've seen what can happen as the result of hate. my son matt was murdered in laramie, wyoming, in 1998. he was befriended by two men in a bar who pretended to be gay. they offered him a ride home,
and when he was in their car, they robbed him and beat him. they drove matt out to the prairie and tied him to a split-rail fence, then beat him some more and left him for dead. in the aftermath of matt's death, my family saw the best of america in the love and support we were shown. so when i see the hate that donald trump has brought to his campaign for president, it terrifies me. i'd like to punch him in the face, i'll tell ya. ahh, i don't know what i said, uhh, i don't remember. he's a mexican. i could stand in the middle of fifth avenue and shoot somebody, and i wouldn't... words have an influence. violence causes pain. hate can rip us apart. i
know what can happen as the result of hate, and donald trump should never be our president. priorities usa action is responsible for the content of this advertising.

>> we are following breaking news, gunpoint home invasion in center city philadelphia. chopper three is over the 1400 block of lombard street near graduate hospital where police say two men, barged into a home, and got away with cash, and a xbox. there are no injuries. but we'll keep you up-to-date as we learn more on "eyewitness news", and any time on line at cbsphilly.com. well, take a look at this image of the moon captured by chopper three last night. this is called a hunter's moon. not quite a full moon just yet. you can see, it has a little bit after waning to it. viewing conditions last night were absolutely perfect,
thanks to chopper three forgetting this beautiful shot. >> really is stunning video, isn't it? >> wow, absolutely beautiful. >> yes, and that actually happens in part because of the way the light gets scattered, partly why you see, you know, either red, yellow or pink sunrise, sunset, yes, just all about the way the light is. >> it does feel so, so warm outside. and you know, it was actually into the triple digits with the heat yesterday in oklahoma, brooke, actually where some of the biggest heat was in our area. >> don't miss that. >> i know, i know. you know, but at the same time, nice and summer like. here is a lock at the records that we need to hit in order to at least tie for today's daily record. eighty-five in philly, in reading, 83 in atlantic city and the list goes on. so, we're doing pretty well already. you saw those values earlier in the broadcast, already in the mid and even upper 70s, handful of spots, see how we do, but we are not forecasting
a tide record today, although, it wouldn't be out of the question necessarily, if we ended up hitting eight an after all, because we are forecasting 84 here today. so see how we do. storm scan is nice and quiet locally. warmfront lifting out of here taking along with it some cloud cover, really started the day off on pretty pleasant note except for some fog. that's long since lifted. and we're left with just beautiful day. now, the jet stream plaza very critical roll in separating cool and warm air. because over the course of the next few days it is going well off to our north, tends to get blow torch effect taking effect here where we have 15, 20 degrees above the seasonable average, expected daytime high. just incredible warmth. not like it has never happened before. but, it is a little atypical to be seeing mid 80s at this time of the year. so, little hint of that indian summer for you, enjoy it while you have got it. the tropical satellite looking here over the next five days, 07% chance of this area of showers and thunderstorms, to develop. we'll keep an eye on that for you, for now, no imminent threat on that.
in the meantime, as we take a look, back here, locally, what we can expect over the course of the next few days is still just exceptional warmth for the standards. at 78 degrees right now, after all at palmyra cove nature park. a place does ends up registering little cooler because it is a more remote area, but offer in the distance, you can see, the center city skyline here, betsy ross bridge off in the distance, a tad hazy, but overall, nice clear sky for us here. that winds direction is key. out of the southwest it comes to help usher in the warmth. it is not really all that humid outside right now. but with the heat out in this, probably sweating, i would definitely suggest breaking out the shorts, if you did not put them away. good for you. but, generally speaking i think a lot of us might have to dig into the closet for them here. we have another very warm day on tap. few clouds dropping down to only 64, normal daytime high again 66 degrees, so our overnight low is more reminiscent where we normally top off n short though, it is going to go pretty quickly here, we keep it pretty warm
tomorrow. that will be record breaking day, we think, and then we slowly but surely drop off with every passing day, watch for some showers probably thursday and specially friday, and then actually below average for the weekend. but the sun should shine looks like for both saturday and sunday. >> all right, i like that forecast. >> talk about transition, though. >> thank you. >> you got it. >> well, a sure sign you're getting older when you get your first aarp card in the mail. i know what they're talking about. but what about when a former teen heart throb pops up on the magazine? >> start sending them at 30. you are not getting older, okay? people are talking after beverly hills 90210 luke perry appeared on the latest issue. crystal cruz shows us the cover and the reaction. >> i don't believe winning through intimidation. of course i'm doing the intimidating. >> luke perry a/k/a dillon mckay was the beverly hills high school heart throb on 90210. >> one of the cutest characters ever.
>> still really cute. >> perry celebrating his 50th birthday on the cover of aarp, a magazine, for the vintage generation. >> how does that make us feel? >> old. >> i remember showing up to the show 30 something and thought those people were old. >> aarp cover boy, and we all feel ancient. and, who else feels old now? >> you want to come along. >> they can't stay heart throbs forever. someone's got to pitch tips on preventing heart attacks. and this crowd says perry looks good doing it. >> go with luke, just embrace it. >> fifty is the new 30. >> sixty is the new 40 i. >> i agree, that was crystal cruz reporting. he was 24 when he was playing a lie school kid.
>> still looks 24. a lie school kid. >> still looks 24. most people owe
the bank. but pat toomey actually owned a 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. republican party bosses looked to find brian fitzpatrick. nearly three thousand miles - that's how far away they "hand-picked" him to run for his brother's seat. but all mike and brian fitzpatrick share is a name. brian fitzpatrick supports a radical republican agenda, including defunding planned parenthood, just like donald trump. a hundred and sixty miles down the road in dc, brian fitzpatrick will put his party first, not pennsylvania families. house majority pac is responsible
