5:17 pm
only in the upper 40s from the hudson valley to newark and sussex. 43 at monticello. it's 51 in allentown. low 50s in southern and central new jersey. mid 40s as you move across long island. temperatures aren't going to change that much tonight. we'll be looking at a southerly wind. with the cloud cover coming in, it will hold the temperature up. we're holding at 43 now. 43 at islip. 44 bridgeport. mid 40s by poughkeepsie. 39 in monticello. we're up now two to five, six degrees in the area from 24 hours ago. so here's the wind. it's going to stay gusty out of the south. 15 up to 25, occasionally 30 miles an hour. it will stay gusty for tomorrow. look at the gusts in newark, gusting to 30. gusting to 31 at islip. and up there at monticello as well. we have the clouds increasing. the area of rain is still way off to the west here. it's past the midnight hour that it gets in here. it will be showery starting for your morning commute. and we could run into a thunderstorm tomorrow afternoon as the front moves along.
5:18 pm
offshore. this storm heads towards the great lakes area and the cold front eventually comes through. ahead of that, that strong southerly wind continues as we head into tomorrow. so that's going to help warm the temperature up. in fact, we'll be up through the 50-degree mark by 9:00 a.m. with showers. 55 lunchtime. 60 in the afternoon. can't rule out the thunderstorm threat at that point. the showers are likely to continue through the evening commute and die down a little bit after that, although it will be unsettled as we go from friday to saturday. here's futurecast. here comes the showers tomorrow with the strong southerly airflow. this front moves along. watch what i mean as things stay a bit unsettled. this large swirl going on in the atmosphere here. clouds, a couple of breaks of sun friday. can't rule out a shower in the 50s. this system swings across for saturday. clouds, breaks of sun maybe, but there'll be some snow showers in the morning and rain showers scattered in the afternoon as it

5:21 pm

5:30 pm
revered in the world of boxing, one of the very best in the business and he doesn't pull any punches. you'll see just why this staten island guy is so much more about substance than show. >> good. there you go. that's very good. instead of waiting for me to catch up, doesn't it make sense to stay ahead of me? >> reporter: for teddy atlas, it doesn't matter if he's in the ring teaching kids -- >> i'm not hitting you with the left hook. isn't that better? >> reporter: -- or working the corner in a championship fight. >> the heat doesn't bother us. we live in the heat. >> reporter: the sport of boxing is known as the sweet science. for teddy, it's a serious business. >> there's a danger element to it. you could go inside the ring and come out with less of yourself
5:31 pm
it's a tough business. you better be strict about it. you better be serious about it. you better have boundaries. you better have rules and laws about how you prepare for it. punches aren't just thrown for the sake of throwing them. they've got to be thrown from the right position at the right time. >> reporter: he has prepared fighters all over the world with great success. timothy gratly squares off against manny pacquiao. but despite all of his success, he remains grounded. >> a lot of people forget where they came from. it's important to you not to forget. >> it's where i grew up. it's where my father's from, my mother's from. this is where the memories are. people that i care about. you've got to show them you care about them. you come back and let them know
5:32 pm
we try to help people. it's important to help people, isn't it? >> he learned about caring from his late father, a staten island doctor who treated those in need for free because as he would tell his son, these people shouldn't fall through the cracks. in his honor 20 years ago, he created the dr. theodore atlas foundation. >> it's our privilege to be able to come back to a place that you love and maybe help just a little bit. it's a good thing. russ: you help a lot. >> a little bit. a little bit. a little bit. russ: helping kids have their lives pointed in the right direction is a top priority of the foundation. that's why teddy opened up three boxing gyms, two in staten island and one in brooklyn. >> you teach kids to be in control of themselves. we teach kids to have pride about themselves. some of the kids have no reason to have pride. boxing can be used. we use boxing. i'm not ashamed to say it. we use it as a tool to get the
5:33 pm
to be responsible for themselves. you can't be a good fighter if you're not in control. and if you don't understand that you have to be in control. russ: there was a time when things got out of control. under the tutelage of his mentor, one of the first kids teddy would train would become a heavyweight champion, mike tyson. after guiding him to success as an amateur, an ugly incident would destroy the relationship. you're in the catskills with mike tyson, training him as an amateur. he grabs your wife 11-year-old sister and tells her what he wants to do to her. you find out, you grab a gun, stick it in his ear, put it in the air and pull the trigger. was that defending the family honor? was it being just crazy or a
5:34 pm
>> i thought it fs was -- making sure he couldn't take something away from a family member of mine that they could never get back. it's -- i didn't want him to do that. i didn't want him to take that away. i cared more about that than i thought about anything else at that moment. >> reporter: after that incident, teddy was offered 5% of tyson's earnings, which would be 300 million, if teddy would go away. so he left. but he told his mentor to take the offer and shove it. the move cost teddy millions, but none of his principles. >> if i do something today that's a little weak, i try before i do it. i feel the same as anyone else. i feel like, gee, that might be convenient. that might be easy. it might make a few extra
5:35 pm
it might be comfortable for the minute. but tomorrow, how am i going to feel about it? russ: since that incident 33 years ago, there have been a lot of tomorrows for teddy. but any regrets? >> no. i've been blessed. i have two very healthy beautiful children and a great wife. russ: his reputation is rock solid. tomorrow evening we'll have more on the impact he's made on his hometown community in staten island. steve: very cool. thank you. dari: the city is one step closer to corralling the costumed characters and panhandlers in times square. steve: sharon crowley shows us how city lawmakers plan to pen them in. >> reporter: the naked cowboy at times square and other costumed characters who take pictures for tips may be restricted to one
5:36 pm
>> to protect people who are simply there to observe or to pass through or want a clear passageway to get from one block to the next. >> reporter: today a new york city council committee passed a bill to allow the department of transportation to restrict where the characters could panhandle. the move comes after complaints about nudity, especially the painted ladies, and aggressive panhandling of tourists. safety here has been a concern. police arrested more than a dozen costumed characters in the last year. supporters of the bill say the costumed characters will have plenty of space here on the plaza and they'll be able to have signs encouraging tips. not everybody is hit. >> i'm a hero. i want to be the first hero to be arrested. i'm not going to be in the box. i'll be walking freely in times square. >> spiderman needs to move? >> he needs to swing.
5:37 pm
aggressive. if you know where the zone is, that's a great idea. >> reporter: supporters of putting the characters into a zone say is simply a way of keeping this a family-friendly plaza. the bill goes before the council thursday. sharon crowley, fox 5 news. steve: a chance to win the hottest tickets in town has returned to times square. speaking of times square. dari: the changes that have been made to hamilton's ticket lottery. steve: and the medical procedure that is helping people ditch their reading glasses. dari: but first, here's tonight's new york minute. >> a new partnership was announced at the chelsea terminal warehouse aimed at revitalizing a local farm. the state is joining with baldor to create a system for chefs to get their food from new york farms. >> we have about 120 different grower-shipper manufacturers
