6:00 pm
a lot of reaction. watch watch. >> donald trump has got to go. ernie: protestors lined up outside of a trump rally in bethpage, angry at his recent comments. inside, trump himself will try to rebuild support that has seemingly floundered in recent weeks. joe is live at the rally for us tonight with more on what's going on there. good evening to you. tell us about this. >> reporter: how's it going? good evening from a live grummon studio. the blockbuster is donald trump. take a look at the crowd as we're going through -- they're going through some of the announcements. as the doors first opened shortly after 4:00 p.m., the first people in line were running to the stage to get a front row spot and catch a
6:01 pm
there's plenty of security as well. the crowd is fired up as you hear them behind me. they were chanting build the wall earlier with video of donald trump's immigration policy was playing. they were cheering on some of his policies like declaring war on isis, taking care of veterans and more. the campaign threw out the make america great again hats to keep folks riled up. this will be the first we've heard from donald trump since that 13-point loss to ted cruz last night in wisconsin. trump tweeted earlier it's good to be home and he's looking forward to the rally. the crowd is excited as well. i talked with some of the audience member and the general theme is they're fed up with washington and donald trump can make a difference. take a listen. >> i am really disenchanted with the gop establishment. they have promised us things and they went into office. we elected them and they denied everything they were going to do for us. it's time for somebody like donald trump to come in and
6:02 pm
corruption of the gop establishment. >> i feel he's going to be a great president and he's going to get rid of all the junk that's out there. >> reporter: now just under an hour until the rally is slated to begin at 7 p.m. they're going to cut the crowd off at about 12,000 people. looking at it now, it looks about 80 percent full. the people are still pouring in. and that's the latest from inside. we'll be monitoring it all night long. ernie: thank you very much, joe, live for us tonight. joining me, robert zimmerman, political strategist. you can see the crowds get out there for donald trump. >> no question about it. this is the case around the country. he draws the large crowds. in some states where anyone can vote, he does very well. new york is different. only registered republicans can vote in the democratic presidential primary. only registered democrats can vote in the democratic presidential primary. ernie: sort it out. a lot of people are saying he's
6:03 pm
can he win enough primaries to clinch the nomination. what's your take on it? >> i would have to say the odds are better than even we'll have an open republican convention. what's interesting about donald trump is he has been able to build momentum, but in normal presidential campaigns, you find the party and the establishment rally to the frontrunner. just the opposite is happening with donald trump. as he's building support, you're seeing the national review and republican political leadership look for an alternative, looking at cruz as a way to stop trump. ernie: how does he fit? what do you think about his position? >> he's benefitting. he's not highly popular in the senate, he's benefitting at the strongest candidate to stop donald trump. he may get enough support to lead to an open convention. ernie: hillary and bernie, they say mathematically that bernie cannot clinch it. >> most shows that's right. bernie sanders has to win 77 percent of the available
6:04 pm
hillary clinton's got to win 33 delegations. she's in the better shape. ernie: what's going to happen in new york? >> i'm predicting a strong hillary clinton win. i'll tell you something, the sanders campaign has been able to mobilize a great deal of support. you're seeing issues resonate over issues like terrorism and gun safety, which work in hillary clinton's advantage and working against sanders. ernie: any chance we could see a clinton-sanders party ticket? what do you think of that? >> no. i do not see it. i think more realistically, whoever the nominee is, i think it will be hillary clinton, she has to broaden her base of support, broaden her appeal. i think having a new yorker and vermonter is not the best ballot. you'll hear names like be -- don't discount tim kaine from virginia. ernie: keep coming back. we love your analysis. >> in other news to report, terror attacks on transit systems were the focus of senate hearings today. it comes weeks after terrorists
6:05 pm
in a subway station in brussels, killing 35 people. leaders on both sides of the aisle want more security here to prevent a similar attack in the u.s. some of the perpetrators in the attacks in brussels were previously known to authorities as criminals. u.s. terrorism experts believe that isis is recruiting criminals to join its ranks in europe. >> brussels is just another reminder of what they did in the transit station there. ernie: the senate plans to add new provisions for more security in an upcoming federal aviation administration bill. and that's what's happening in the news right now. let's check in with the weather. we had some sun today, but still cold, raw. nick: the breeze was gusty this afternoon. that put a chill to the air. we've been in the 40s this afternoon. ernie: rain on the way. nick: we have some rain, particularly tomorrow. that will come with milder air. ernie: that's good. nick: for a day. only for a day. we will get chilly as we head into the weekend. 48 and 30 today.
6:06 pm
below that by over 10 degrees. 79 and 21 in the records. and your sunrise 6:29. down at 7:26. don't expect to see sunshine for tomorrow as the clouds are going to be in play. they're increasing now. 45. humidity increasing thanks to the gusty south wind at 20, 21 miles an hour. pressure 30.10 on the barometer and it's holding steady. let's look at the temperatures. cool by april standards. upper 40s for highs. newark, sussex, did make 52 allentown. 47 poughkeepsie. and middle 40s as you went on towards long island. 42 on the east end. now 52 at allentown. that's up one degree in the last hour. our temperatures not likely changing much in the next few hours. in fact, we'll start to rise as the night goes along. we're up two degrees in the city. 43 at 5:00. now it's 45. 45 poughkeepsie. mid 40s as you move to long island. the reason the temperature will be moving up is because we're
6:07 pm
we're in the four to 10 degree temperature gain from 24 hours ago. there's the south wind. it is busy at 10 to 20 miles an hour. occasionally the gusts are getting 25 to 30 miles an hour. we'll see the gusts continue as we head into tomorrow and as we look at fox 5 sky guardian. no rain nearby. showers up to the north. these are scooting off in this direction, but it will be these showers off to the west that will get here later tonight, past the midnight hour. they'll be around as we head into tomorrow. clouds will be increasing. as we watch the system coming in from the west, high pressure sliding offshore. a storm center is heading towards the great lakes region. there's the cold front approaching from the west. the area of rain in play. a couple of thunderstorms there, too. it's not out of the question we see a thunderstorm around here tomorrow afternoon. the other issue will be the southerly wind, the gusty southerly wind that will continue. look what it will do to the temperatures. boost it up to 50 by 9:00 a.m. as we have occasional showers. then the more numerous areas of showers come in for the afternoon. 55 lunchtime.
6:08 pm
of a thunderstorm popping up at that point. here's the futurecast. there's the area of rain. you can see the southerly airflow in play. watch what happens tomorrow. the showers will quit tomorrow evening. friday the system still in the area. so clouds around, a couple of breaks of sun, a gusty breeze. it cools down a bit. a chance of a shower. friday basically is dry. then there's this system swinging from the west. this could be cold enough saturday morning for snow showers to be around and scattered rain showers in the afternoon with a day of a gusty breeze and temperatures not getting out of the 40s this weekend. clouds tonight. showers come in past midnight. 45 in the city. 30s to the lower 40s in the suburbs. the temperature is rising through the night. showers and afternoon thunderstorms tomorrow. a gusty breeze. up about 60. then we cool it back to 52 friday with a fair amount of clouds and breezy. again, snow showers saturday morning. those will be rain showers in the afternoon. not a pretty day. and breezy and chilly at 45. look at sunday morning, 29. we'll be back to 45, a beautiful sunday, but chilly.
6:09 pm
we'll be back in the 50s. i'm hoping for mid 60s by tuesday with a couple of showers. then it cools down by wednesday. ernie: okay. you'll like this story. i know you like to work out. coming up next, some think staying healthy involves a lot of physical exercise. but we often forget to also exercise our minds. coming up, how doing that can help preserve our memories later in life. >> and you can get to that later part of life by being in a happy relationship. how that helps your longevity. it's a great subject right here tomorrow at 6:00. we're coming right back. keep it here on fox 5. fios is not cable. we're wired differently. in the last 10 years our competitors have received a few awards. but we've received a few more, including jd power who ranked us highest in customer satisfaction for the third year in a row. only fios has the fastest internet on the most awarded network.

6:13 pm
the pinks and reds and yellows. what do you think? >> i like this one the best. >> reporter: some studies have shown that engaging in artistic activities can help slow the progression of dementia. you took her to the doctor and what did the doctor say? >> she had some improvement in her abilities. he's very familiar with the program. i think that he has seen it has made a real difference. >> reporter: a mayo clinic study found that activities like painting, drawing, sculpting, woodworking and making pottery challenged the brain and can help preserve it. >> based on this study, engaging in mentally stimulating activities, such as computer and craft activities, on a regular basis, at least two or three times per week, is associated with decreased future risk of dementia. >> reporter: this doctor says
6:14 pm
socializing, like going to the movies, concerts and being part of a book club, can help as well. >> all this would decrease the risk of early stage dementia. >> the study focused on people 70 and older but researchers are advising younger generations to start strengthening their brains now. linda schmidt, fox 5 news. ernie: thank you very much, linda. start now. dr. devi is here. i guess it's never too early to start exercising our brain? >> i agree. the goal is to challenge your brain in different ways. for memory, you want to strengthen your building blocks. these include attention and focus. it's easy in this world to get over overstimulated overstimulated. if you do painting and sculpting, you have to pay attention to detail. you have to focus and look at what you're trying to create -- ernie: that creative activity is important.

do tnghireounder t stress ofti. >>hat ts tdo wit charades or jeopardy. it involves socializing. you're throwing all the things together to make the brain work ennie: we'al t n dion. those are the primary things. what else? >> attention, concentration, the speed of processing. the way we see that is recall, being able to draw back the facts really quickly, to think fast. and if you can link it to emotion, that helps cement it or code it in the brain differently. ernie: i want to draw something from my adult coloring book for you. >> sounds great. ernie: i'll frame it for you. thank you so much. stay sharp. >> one thing we always remember, the lyrics to our favorite songs. so i have a question for you on that. check this out. when the radio is playing, like in the car or wherever you are, do you sing with it? what do you do? find out what people said coming
