[laughter] >> yeah. >> just me. >> it sounds like they really are good at keeping them clean. all right, folks, let's talk about the weather while you guys sit there and converse about that subject. 89 degrees was the high number in central park, above average yet again, we hit that number at about 1:30, earlier this afternoon. looks like we're going to stay above average for the next couple of days, but numbers are actually going to be dropping into the latter part of the week next week. right now pretty warm across much of area, we're in the 70s in new york city, 77 in
10:18 pm
bridgeport, 71 in poughkeepsie, and we're in the 60s in sussex and 70 out towards monticello. now, the big difference today was in the dewpoints, that makes it feel much more comfortable. out across the east we're starting to see these numbers climb, and a southwest wind flow is going to help these numbers rise, and you're going to feel the difference when you head out the door tomorrow morning. right now we do have a southwest wind that's relatively light, but tomorrow they could be gusting as high as 25 miles per hour. and once again it's going to usher in more humid air across the region. high pressure's in control right now, it'll be sliding off to the east, then our focus is on a cold front that's work its way into the great lakes tonight igniting some showers and storms across michigan, heading towards western new york, and it will start to affect our area as we go into tomorrow. out ahead of it, we'll start out with plenty of sunshine in the morning hours and then see a mix of sun and clouds with a chance of pop-up showers. a lot of activity will happen in
10:19 pm
the early evening to maybe just after sunset. so high temperatures tomorrow mostly in the 90s across the deep south here, 89 in miami tomorrow, some cooler, drier air is going to work in behind that front across chicago and minneapolis. we'll get a taste of that in the second half of the week. out to the west it's still hot from billings all the way down to albuquerque, but the west coast still feeling good, temperatures in the 70s in san francisco, and l.a. will be 81 tomorrow. tonight, mostly clear. sunshine, clouds rotating through from time to time, and in the middle part of the day, i can't rule out the chance for a pop-up shower as is indicated here on our future cast. but i think more likely in the early evening is when there'll be the threat of some thunderstorms, and that will linger into the evening hours tomorrow, and everything clears out by tuesday morning. on tuesday, though, we're still a little unstable, so it will still feel humid, and i'm going to leave in the chance for an isolated shower, especially north and west of the city. after that on wednesday, i think that's going to be the best
10:20 pm
weather day of the week which i'll show you in just a moment. in the meantime, we could have some patch chi fog -- patchy fog tonight and tomorrow, and tomorrow mostly sunny, chance of an isolated shower during the day, but i think there'll be a greater chance in the evening. windy and humid tomorrow, temperatures in the mid 80s to 90s, and it will feel hot and uncomfortable unlike this weekend. as we go into tuesday, there's a chance of an isolated shower towards the afternoon. wednesday we finally dry it out, it will feel comfortable on wednesday too. thursday could be a soaker, we're watching a system with a chance of significant rainfall by then, and as we go into the weekend, i did throw in the chance of an isolated shower. i think it should stay dry as temperatures drop into the low 80s for those of you that have not enjoyed the heat, i think you're going to get a little bit of relief toward the end of the week. >> audrey, thanks. >> all right. so mission impossible was back, but it was hardly impossible for the film to conquer the weekend box office.
