6:03 pm
and sussex. we should bottom out at 40 degrees in bridgeport, so not quite as cold as last night when we dropped down to below freezing across much of the tristate area. we are seeing a warming trend happening over the next couple of days, but it means we're also going to see a change in sort of our weather pattern: we have drive conditions today, but than will be changing with the approach of a system that could spark off a shower north and west of the city through the evening, but most of the precipitation will hold off until tomorrow. it will not be a widespread rain tomorrow, but we will see lots of clouds and the threat of a couple of isolated showers on and off through the day. temperatures more comfortable, more seasonable this time of year. high readings mostly in the 50s across the tristate area. >> thank you, audrey. the clintons spending time with local african-americans in our city. >> they visited historic churches just a few days after the former president clashed

6:05 pm

[cheers and applause] she didn't. you are defending the people who kill the lives you say matter. >> after a church service, former new york state democratic chairman charlie king says some of it comes from a misunderstanding of how bad it was back then. >> it's hard to look at that bill through today's lens, and i think that's what president clinton's explaining now. >> democratic presidential candidate hillary clinton took her turn at the pulpit of the bethel church in jamaica, queens. >> my commitment to issues about how we work and live together is rooted deep in my experience and my heart. >> some in the harlem democratic

6:13 pm
we hit that number about 3:00 earlier today, but the it was a cold start with a lot of our readings below the freezing mark this morning. we started off with a low of 31, and that was very close to the record set back in 1997. right now we're in the 40s across much of the region. it's 43 in islip, bridgeport at 49 although we're still in the 50s up towards poughkeepsie, 51 at the moment. things are relatively quiet, no precipitation across the region. but we will be seeing increasing clouds. the numbers we're currently seeing are slightly milder than this time yesterday, and we're going to look for a milder trend as we go further on into the week. winds did pick up overnight, so that kind of added to the chill if you weren't standing in the sun. look at our satellite and radar, clouds moving in from the west. there is some precipitation, but i think a lot of that is going to ride off to the north and kind of fall apart. we do have a system that is approaching us from the west, but i think it really makes its impact on tuesday.
6:14 pm
we could squeeze out a couple of isolated showers. but the main bands of rain won't get here until tuesday, and that's when we'll see a good, soaking rain across the region. temperatures milder tomorrow, high readings mostly in the 50s across the northeast here. readings expected towards the southeast, 80s across parts of dallas -- excuse me, parts of texas like in dallas and san tone e owe. cool air working in from the northern plains, but the west is still looking pretty nice. nice temperatures from boise right to vegas, and l.a. tomorrow will be just under 70 degrees for their high number. a look at our future cast shows tonight increasing clouds. we'll stay dry, maybe squeeze out an isolated shower north and west. tomorrow morning we'll see lots of clouds, there could be a couple of early morning showers up in the hudson valley. but throughout the day i think we'll stay mainly dry with a couple of isolated showers here and there. tuesday the frontal system begins to make its approach, so
6:15 pm
rainfall on tuesday. it'll be moving through the region and should be out of here by the evening commute. in fact, we'll probably see the sun before it sets on tuesday night. so in the meantime, increasing clouds tonight. the winds will continue to be pretty blustery. expect overnight lows mostly in the 30s, not quite as cold as last night. and then tomorrow we're going for temperatures at or above a little bit of average for this time of year. very few showers. the winds will continue to be blustery, and steady rainfall is expected for tuesday. that's when you need your wet weather gear handy. wednesday we dry it out, temperatures stay in the middle 50s for the middle part of the weekend and by the weekend, 60 degrees. we'll also have a mix of sun and shrouds, and we should stay relatively dry for the majority of the week once we get through this wet start that we're expecting the next couple of days. >> okay, audrey, thank you. >> well, millions of netflix users may not be feeling very chill when they get their next bill. the streaming service is raising its monthly fee for some
6:16 pm
>> fox 5's jen that mers tells us why. >> if you have netflix, chances are you'll soon be paying more to use it, and most people don't even know it's happening. 17 million subscribers, 80% of netflix consumer base, will see their rates go up starting next month. the how is a little complicated. in may 2014 netflix raised the price of its streaming plan for new customers to $8.99 a month. if you already had netflix, you were grandfathered many so you could keep the old rate of $7.99. as of next month, that's coming to an end. longtime subscribers will now have to pay $2 more to watch their favorite shows. >> certainly, as long as i've had it, it's been at that $7.99 price point. now they have original programming, making their own movies, so it's really the demand of that original programming. >> netflix's new rate puts them in the realm of amazon prime, but it's still not the priciest
6:17 pm
for example, a commercial-free package on hulu will run you $11.999 a month. but how much is too much? frank underwood, jessica jones and crazy eyes, are they worth the extra doughing? >> that seems like a lot more. >> but that's spotify's monthly membership for $8.99 a month. i think i would do it. >> on top of paying for cable. that seems like a lot. >> i think it's a convenience thing, but i think it's worth it. >> i think it's okay. i like netflix. at that price of $7.99, it was a bargain. >> reporter kelsey stealer says the vast majority of subscribers won't drop their plans. >> netflix is something everyone uses whether their friends are coming over, watching by themselves, everyone has to know what's going on with house of cards and everything. so i think people will talk but, ultimately, everyone's going to depend on it heavily. >> on the upper feast side,
6:18 pm
>> are you torn up about it? >> i don't think so. i think it's actually worth it. >> still a bargain. >> origin is the new black, breaking bad -- >> walking dead. me and my walking dead. >> everything's on it. >> we've got to get game of thrones there. >> i've got something for that. >> the aspca and the alliance of new york city's animals held the first paws parade. madison square park and marched to union square. many were able to find the perfect pet and to give that animal a loving, new home. >> duke is here now with a look at what's only coming up in sports. >> hello. matt harvey on the round.
