A law enforcement official said Weiner has agreed to plead guilty to a charge of transferring obscene material to a minor.
Weiner was already in federal custody ahead of the court hearing, which was scheduled for 11 a.m.
US authorities have been investigating reports that Weiner, 52, sent explicit messages to a 15-year-old girl in North Carolina.
During an investigation into the sexting allegation, FBI officials found emails on Mr Weiner's laptop from his ex-wife, Huma Abedin, who was a top aide to Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton.
The FBI in October said it was reviewing a new batch of emails that "appear to be pertinent" to its previous investigation into Clinton's use of a private server while she was secretary of state. Comey announced shortly before the election that the new emails contained nothing to change his view that Clinton could not be charged with a crime.
