Harvey Weinstein has a new communications team.

Juda Engelmayer, the founder of Herald PR in New York, is now representing Weinstein. Engelmayer was formerly the senior vice president at 5WPR.

On Wednesday, Engelmayer told CNNMoney that he signed on with Weinstein "in the past couple of days." He would not provide further comment.

The move comes after reports surfaced on Tuesday that Weinstein had parted ways with Sitrick And Company, which specializes in crisis management. The company confirmed to CNNMoney that it no longer represents the former movie executive but declined to say why.

Sitrick And Company began working with Weinstein in October, following numerous allegations of sexual misconduct against him first reported by The New York Times and The New Yorker.

The allegations led to Weinstein being fired by The Weinstein Company, which he co-founded in 2005, ongoing criminal investigations and the company's bankruptcy.

Weinstein has repeatedly denied "any allegations of non-consensual sex."

Temperatures today were slightly above average with highs in the upper 80s. Similar conditions are in store for Sunday as well as stronger winds with gusts up to 20mph. Tonight will be calm with lows in the upper 60s with very light wind. Temperatures will start off above average on Monday before a cold front moves through. That front will give us additional rain chances Monday night and some much more fall like temperatures through the rest of the week.
