stable type of water craft, this would be the weekend to do it because the weather is going to be fabulous as we've had over the last few weekends. 87 in central park, we hit that about 7:00, earlier this afternoon. this morning we started out with a very comfortable 67 degrees. looks like right now we have high temperatures mostly into the 80s, although we're just under 80 at month sell low, and our current readings are in the 70s. 77 in montauk, 77 in islip. beautiful day in bridgeport now. 81 in the park, 83 in poughkeepsie, still in the 70s in monticello and sussex at 81 at the moment. starting to climb. it's not uncomfortable just yet, but we can see these numbers creeping up into the low 60s. when we start getting near 70, that's when it gets uncomfortable, and that's going to be the case starting tomorrow, and it's going to sit with us at least through the first half of next week. that change in wind direction from the southwest is what's going to bump up our heat and humidity across the area.
right now the winds are relatively light, but southwest wind flow kind of makes things more humid across the region, and that's the case over the next few days. plenty of sunshine found across the area, just a couple of high clouds north and west of the city right now, and there is a front well off towards our west, but that's where it's going to remain out ahead of that front, that southwest wind flow will bump up the heat and humidity. we'll get clouds from time to time from the southwest. the heat is building, though, across the eastern half of the nation. a lot of readings in the 80s and into the 90s as far south as new orleans and san antonio. comfortable numbers towards the west coast, 70s in san francisco and high 80s for l.a. tomorrow. a look at our future cast shows partly cloudy skies tonight, that's how we'll start off our monday, and we'll see a mix of sun and clouds, but in the afternoon with the humidity building, i'm going to throw in the chance for a couple of isolated showers north of i-80s. we'll see a chance of a couple
scattered showers, maybe an isolated thunderstorm. and on monday more of the same. a mix of sun and clouds with the threat of a couple of isolated showers and after that the heat and humidity stays, but i think we're going to be dry. so tonight partly cloudy, very nice temperatures mostly in the 60s, upper 50s north and west, and tomorrow a mix of sun and clouds with a chance of an isolated shower, and it will fill more humid tomorrow. high temperatures approaching 90 degrees, so a great day to go to sunscreen. the uv index will be high at a seven tomorrow, and the surf heights will be about 2-3 feet. you might want to take a dip, although there is a moderate risk of rip currents. temperatures hovering into the 90s next week, we may be in store of our second heat wave for central park. and it's going to stay hot and humid it looks like for the majority of week. not much of a chance of rainfall category, just a couple of isolated showers tomorrow and then on monday, and it looks pretty good and quiet. you know, the u.s. open starts on monday.

four college grad women for every three college grad men. and it seems like new york the numbers are actually worse than the census numbers indicate. >> the ladies even though the odds are stacked against you, i've consulted the experts and have some tips even if you live here in new york city. >> if there is an undersupply of men, there's going to be an oversupply in the working class dating pool. and that is, in fact, the reality. so i have this line this the book instead of an upper east side wine bar, you might want to try a firemen's bar in staten island. >> would you consider dating someone who wasn't college educated? >> yes. >> and if you want to increase your chances of marriage after college, consider thinking about it in high school. choose the college with more men than women. already out of college? well, berger suggests moving to a city like denver or the san francisco bay area like silicon valley where college-age men outnumber college-age women. not only will there be more men to choose from, those men are
likely to treat you better or risk losing you to another man. sharon crowley, fox 5 news. >> sharon has spoke been, huh? you tell us about sports. >> well, coming up triple crown winner american pharoah is trying to keep his winning streak alive at saratoga race course earlier today in the $1.6 million travers stakes, you won't believe what happened.

terry collins is calling it normal soreness. jacob da gram bouncing back big time from his poor performance in philly earlier this week, striking out nine hitters through his first five innings, and he had a runner on second. no score through five innings, but he struggled in the sixth. sandoval scored luke key -- [inaudible] all the way from first base. red sox scored two runs in the sixth inning, continue to lead 3-1 now in the ninth. preseason nfl gets interesting when the giants and jets go head to head tonight, kickoff at 7 clb 0-- 7:00. jets outscored 24-3 and with ryan fitzpatrick you should center, the offense has only produced 10 of those points. thousand, the similar story for the giants as well, the offense has struggled generating points, and they're still awaiting victor cruz's return. while adding injury to insult, four safeties have been lost to
potentially season-ending injuries on the defense, so tonight the last chance for these giants to get themselves together. as for tasting their local rival, it doesn't even matter to georgia meal mclean. >> i don't like anybody, to be completely honest. i'm out there to beat you, and you're out there to take my job. so the number one goal is if you're trying to take food off of my plate, you don't need no rivalry from me. >> all right. whether you're green or blue, tonight we find out. >> still preseason. >> already intense. >> yes. >> final look at weather? >> weather is a lot calmer. we're expecting a beautiful weekend across the tristate area. temperatures will be close to 90, a little bit more humid tomorrow, and we do have the threat of an isolated shower up towards the hudson valley and northwestern new jersey. hot and humid into next week, we could be in store for our next heat wave of the season for central park, so get to stretch out that summer wardrobe a little while longer. >> and u.s. open. you're excited -- >> starts monday!
