[ laughter ] hard to tell. >> there's no book, as they say. exactly. weather picture? >> there's something out there, i'm going to time it out for when it's coming here. what we've got right now is a sky, some clouds overhead but the temperatures were for this time of year, we're doing fine, 56 right now around yonkers, this is clear chase out there with looks like a just right -- a jack russell, perhaps. in new york city, a couple clouds overhead, we have a 58 degree reading in manhattan, southeast winds around six miles per hour. high temp was 68, 10 warmer
degrees warmer than we typically reach. headlines looking like this, you could see some storms out there, during the overnight hours and during your day tomorrow, plenty of breaks. not like raining all day long and every place, you could see pops of sunshine especially south of the city tomorrow, big temperatures, but there is a severe risk for severe weather. the place you want to focus on is this limegreen color, new york city and point south, it's a marginal risk, look, it's still unlikely but it's out there, there's a possibility for damaging wind and hail, but it's not a real major threat, they would bump that up from a marginal risk to moderate to high and then intense, we just don't see that. what we have out there right now, wet weather making its push, getting close to a little northwest corner of sullivan county, start off with very light rain, there are heavier bouts in there, the bigger picture will show you what we're watching, this front is going to make its way through the area but take a look, at the configuration of this
ridge in the front and then this big, with step crossing it, first crosses to the east end of long island, but then that ridge will still not have hit the jersey shore. it is possible tomorrow to see some temperatures at around east end of long island, upper 40s, low 50s. at the same time to find a temperature around the judicial, 78? maybe a little bit warmer than that? it's a possibility. rain is going to be out there because before this front gets in, you will get that southwest push that you always get ahead of the front and that's why i think some of those temperatures could be climbing tomorrow. other folks, not climbing. if the front is on top of you, temperatures are going down. 6:00 a.m., could be some bouts of heavy rain out there for some folks but not for everybody. again, some clearing. starting south of the city and then go with an on-again off- again set up throughout the day. plenty of breaks like a said, 3:00 p.m., the temperature change, 40 in catskill, 78 man hot, 56 around the hamptons. then 6:00 p.m., things will start push out of the area,
clear wednesday on tap for us. so right now the rainfall amounts look to be somewhere less than an inch, looks like half an inch or so in some spots, a little bit more than that. 70 degrees the high temp for tuesday, that's an umbrella day but on-again off-again, wednesday looks great at 64, cold wednesday morning, 44 christie, some of you outside the city will be down in the lower to mid 30s. that's a reminder. >> sure is.
i'm doing it for me, and my insurance covers it. i am ready. it's time to get screened for colon cancer. it can be prevented. there's more than one way to screen for colon cancer and screening is easier than ever. if you're 50 or older talk with your healthcare provider and choose the best test for you!
now your jeep sports desk. >> going 7-2 on a road trip is not easy, the mets did it and here's how. they doubled up their opponents, outscoring them 54- 27. noah syndergaard on the hill against the reds and the mets gave him a quick lead. michael conforto, whose killing it since being moved into the three hole, jack's a long solo blast to center field, his third of the year gives the mets a 1-0 lead. 1-1 in the third, lucas duda, launches one that may have gone as high as it went far, the moonshot finally lands beyond the wall in right. his fourth makes it 3-1 mets. syndergaard didn't have his
the seventh, nine strikeouts. that bullpen couldn't hold that the but not to worry, the big data neil walker puts them back in front, already his eighth home run of the year, that's the difference in this one, the mets win 5-3. after going 3-6 on their homestand, a change of scenery to the yankees some good. a nine-game road in texas, alex rodriguez not in the starting lineup with an oblique injury. part of the reason for the yankees slump, 3-4 hitters came in hitting .164, worst in baseball. mark teixeira improve that tonight, rbi double, first double of the season. the bombers up 2-0. starlin castro would add to the lead, solo shot, his third home run of the season, plenty for nathan eovaldi, the texas native with the great homecoming, didn't allow a hit, throwing seven shutout innings, just two hits while striking out six. picking up his first win of the season. andrew miller worked a perfect
not allowed a run all season. 3-1 yankees the final. court of appeals says tom brady must sit the first four games of the 2016 season, reinstating the nfl initial suspension from may 2015 today, a three-judge panel in the second circuit court reinstated the original suspension directly pointing out his destruction of that cell phone that contained 10,000 text messages which they would raise the stakes from air in a football to compromising the integrity of a proceeding that the commissioner had convened. get this, the patriots and brady agreed to a two-year contract extension in the off- season so basically the four- game suspension will only cost him $200,000, as opposed to 2 million if he had been suspended last season. even when he loses, he manages to win. time for a quick break, when we return, josh norman now with
in washington. pet moments are beautiful, unless you have allergies. then your eyes may see it differently. flonase is the first and only nasal spray approved to relieve both itchy, watery eyes and congestion. no other nasal allergy spray can say that. when we breathe in allergens our bodies react by over producing six key inflammatory substances that cause our symptoms. most allergy pills only control one substance. flonase controls six. and six is greater than one.

it seems like a cold at first. you can't concentrate, can't sleep. before long it's all you can think about. you feel anxious and uncertain. until one day you realize, this could be it. you've done it, you've quit smoking for good. a little suffering now can save a lot of suffering later. stop before the real suffering starts. you can quit smoking. talk with your doctor. thanks for joining us tonight. >> up next, "the late show with stephen colbert". he has michelle williams.
