9:15 am
amount of medications needed to control the seizures, and in some cases eliminate them. >> he is a good boy and i can't wait to have him back. >> now, not everyone gets dramatic results of course, but in clinical trials, 50% of all patients cut their number of seizures in half. well, in honor of the pope's visit to our area next month, the new jersey brewery has created a beer dedicated to pope francis. cape may brewing company is releasing a limited edition draft beer. the beer's name is a playoff of yolo, which stands for you only live one. and it is called yopo, which means you only pope once.

9:17 am
looks like, as we look across central park. the sun reflecting off the buildings. it is mostly sunny. and 78. and we've got calm winds this morning. and it is looking good. and the summer heat is making a comeback. we will be at 90 today. and then even warmer over the next few. and so yes, it will be a great beach week, with a low risk of rip kurns, and then monday, as we fast forward, looks to be the hottest day. not only will temperatures be nearing the mid-90s but humidity levels will be high, so it is going to feel like the mid to upper 90s out. there and we are saying hey, we have the potential again for the first heat wave of 2015. but this is looking pretty solid. if we can hit 90 today, we think we've got it in the bag. so yesterday, a high of 88. today at least a high of 90. and tomorrow, 92. monday, 93. all the while, humidity levels are increasing as well. making it feel even hotter out there. and on the vortex satellite and radar picture, what we know is that we have some more clouds to the north of the city. and a few stray showers as well. and this is a general trend for today.
9:18 am
there is a slight chance for showers. maybe a stray thunderstorm to the north of the city but otherwise, it is going to be a mostly sunny and very hot start to your weekend. and most of us will stay with the sunshine. and that's because we have the big area of high pressure dominating the forecast. and with this, it is not just today, it is not just tomorrow, it is monday, tuesday, wednesday, and this high pressure system is here to stay for a while. yes, we have chances for showers and thunderstorms, but truthfully, friday looking like the best bet and fla that is certainly a ways away. hour by hour, taking through the the forecast. today, mostly sunny with the chance of showers mainly to the north of the city. note it gets very, very close. so a chance of that happening, and the rest of us, mostly sunny skies. and overnight mostly clear. a very comfortable night. and with humidity levels really starting to increase as we go through the day tomorrow. and so tomorrow, it is mostly sunny. and looking good. and maybe a stray shower again for the north. but we do think tomorrow is an even more dry day than today. and then on monday, a chance again of showers and storms.
9:19 am
this is not widespread opportunity for rain by any stretch. they are more pop-up afternoon showers and storms. the beach forecast looks like this. for today, a warm start. mid-80s. southwest winds 5-10. tomorrow, a warm finish. mid to upper 80s. water temperature 68 to 76 degrees. and low risk of rip currents. a nice change of pace to report. the mountain forecast, 20% chance of a shower or storm today. tomorrow, a hot one and dry. the temperatures are nearing 90 in the mountains. okay, here we go. the extended forecast, today it is 90 and mostly sunny with the chance to the north and overnight, 74 degrees. and mostly clear and mild. and getting a little more muggy tomorrow. and it feels like the mid-90s under mostly sunny skies. and 93 on monday. we will feel like the mid to upper 90s. and we have a chance for showers and storms monday and tuesday. as well as wednesday. thursday right now looks dry. and friday i think is the best bet for wet weather for everybody. and so three days straight, with 90 or above is a heat wave. and right now we are forecasting four days straight and it all hangs on today.
9:20 am
can we make it today? and can we make it on tuesday? >> i'm not each sure, am i rooting for a heat wave or not? i can't really tell. >> we tried once before. it didn't happen. at least for my own personal well-being, i hope we get this one. >> we have to bear the brunt of 90-degree weather we should be able to call it a heat wave. >> i think so. >> we will have to see. >> thank you very much, vanessa. the yankees win. ending the toronto blue jays 11 game winning streak. >> here is otis livingston with the sports update. >> after getting swept by the blue jays last weekend, in the bronx, yankees were trying to return the favor in toronto. beginning last night. half game back with the jays. first place. and just so happened to be going for the 12th straight win. evan nova lost to them last time out. got nicked out again. falling behind 3-0 in the third. it looked like the price was right in toronto. newly acquired david price, he is undefeated for his career at the rogers center. struck out six in 7 and 1/3 innings and left with a 3-1 lead in the eighth and the
