in it cosby admits to drugging other women and even describes the sexual relationship he had with constand saying it was concentual. his attorneys argue that deposition should have remained sealed, and cosby only agreed it after former montgomery county attorney general, bruce castor, promise the the comedian would not be charged criminally. cosby's attorneys are expected to ask the judge to throw out recorded phonecall between the comedian and constand's mother. they say cosby was unaware he was being recorded, and pennsylvania law requires both parties consent before a recording can be made. the prosecution points out, though, the records g was made in canada where constand and her mother lived and where one party consent is allowed. now today's hearing begins at 1:00. the comedian is expected and required to be here, he should arrive any minute. live here in montgomery county, greg argos, cbs-3, "eyewitness news". thank up, greg. well, jury selection begins today for the civil trial stemming from the deadly 2013 center city building collapse.

we end up with from it in the way of precipitation is maybe a pop up shower or thunderstorm. that's really it. but in the meantime, we are going to have the chance to heat up, see more of southerly wind flow kick in, help to bring back some of that moisture, so it turns more humid, and certainly is going to be reflective, the heat that is on the thermometer in the days ahead. what's left of hermine, pulling away ever so slowly, turning more humid tomorrow flirting with 09 by tomorrow, then as the cold front advances, we are actually going to have chance to rebound right back into the 900's. so, that front comes along wednesday night, into thursday, especially, but it looks like the main brunt of that moisture bypasses us to the north. so that's why we're only allowing for pop up shower or thunderstorm along the way, friday is going to be another hot day. we will actually challenge record highs that day, as we top off at 93, and this is very old record to beat, we would have to hit 94 to tie it. but dates back to 1884. really long standing record.

place. tonight still pretty mild. still dry. and then here we go. heating it up 93 apiece both thursday, and friday. friday is the record challenging day. we keep the theme going saturday, too, that's when another front comes along though. may be more showers and thunderstorms saturday, possibly sunday, which is important, because it is eagles game day. we'll let you know the timing. >> you know the weekends that doesn't work for him. >> we'll work on that. >> summer is in no rush to go away. we'll be right back. >> not yet. >> oh, sore bye this, you're witnessing new world record coming to you from a bar in dubai, it is called domino drop shot. it is when a shot glass drops contents into another glass, dubai's puddle sports bar successfully dropped more than 4500 glasses of whiskey into 4500 energy drinks, bar bosses said it took 160 employees five months to plan the record breaker. >> and now we'll be
