camera high atop the empire state building. if you step outside even now, 11:19, it's cloudy, muggy, 75 degrees and the relative humidity is at 84%. 90 degrees. that was our high temperature. a full 9 degrees above the average that we only 8 degrees shy of the record. closer to the record than it was to the average that we consider normal. rainfall, we did have a little tonight. we still have a couple of little cells. but generally speaking we're still almost two inches below where we should be for the month of august. we need about 2 inches of rain. we'll have a couple chances over however, none of this rain really does much to don't count on that too much. i mentioned a few showers moving through and especially if you take a look from nassau in to suffolk county, we're looking at one of those cells. it did move through the city. now we're watching it push its way across long island. relatively minor activity is what we have out here. the muggy condition you'll be dealing with. tonight
we're mild and cloudy and muggy for most locations. as we head in to the day tomorrow, get ready for the hazy, hot, humid weather. it marches in tomorrow and basically stays with us all week long. and tuesday brings in the first day of september but it will be a sizzler. also expecting temperatures, low 90s with that humidity intact as well. so it is going to be sort of an interesting week as we say goodbye to august and hello to september. cloudy and muggy overnight. 73 degrees. we are seeing spotty showers. as we head in to the day tomorrow, partly sunny, hot and humid. 92 degrees. we do have about a 20% chance of seeing a shower. primarily looks get for north and west. if you're heading to the beaches, know we have a moderate risk of rip currents basically at all our beaches. be mindful of that. air temperature, perfect to head to the beach to cool off. you want to be very careful when you get in the water. 92 degrees the forecast high for your monday and tuesday. not much cooler for wednesday and thursday. still expecting 90-degree temperatures with upper 80s for friday and saturday. so
surprise you. 130 yards now... bill's got a very tough lie here... looks like we have some sort of sea monster in the water hazard here. i believe that's a "kraken", bruce. it looks like he's going to go with a nine iron. that may not be enough club... well he's definitely going to lose a stroke on this hole. if you're a golf commentator, you whisper. it's what you do. if you want to save fifteen percent or more on car insurance, you switch to geico. it's what you do. this golf course is electric...
the mets are trying to get in to the playoffs and steve overmyer is here with a quick look at sports. they look like a pretty sure thing at this point. >> they're well on their way. they've been steal ing the back page headlines all summer. now we'll see if they can bring this together when it really counts. what you love about this team is every single night it's a different hero and in this game it was michael cuddyer. not really been a banner year for him but this go ahead knock in the 7 makes up for an earlier error. the mets win 5-4. they maintain a five-and-a-half-game lead in the nl east.
