trick or treat weather looking g. what are you going to do for the marathon? >> first of all it is a nice night, temperatures in the low 50s. for the marathon temperatures in the 50s, and i think there could be a sprinkle or two mainly north and west of the city. so it should be mainly dry morning tomorrow. for that we head outside of our
studio and there are a ton of great costumes. this is probably one of the best outside shots we've shown this year. very eager crowd there enjoying this halloween night. temperature down to 53, winds south around 3 miles per hour. there. the high getting up to 56 after a morning low of 42. 59 is your normal high for this time of year. so we're a little below that. the warmest halloween on record, 81 in nineteen 46, the coldest in 19 25, all the way down to 29. don't forget tonight to set those clocks back one hour. what that means is the sunset that was 5:54 today is going to be 4:53 p.m. tonight. right now 53 at newark, 53 at jfk airport, low 50s on the island. what we've been watching is we started the day off fairly sunny but it's pretty overcast.
off to the west there is a system moving through the ohio valley, another piece of that system down over louisiana and texas. you can see it's breaking up in the middle. we're going to be fortunate enough to get into that break overnight into the day tomorrow. so we're not looking for much if any rainfall as indicated on the future cast. there could be a shower or sprinkle early tomorrow morning, mainly north and west of new york city. but for the marathon we should be fairly dry. overcast, though, then we break out in a little bit more sunshine by the afternoon. so at the start line at fort wadsworth on statten island, southwest wind 4 to 8 miles per hour. what a difference from what we had last year. if you remember the marathon last year we had temperatures in the 30s with winds gusting up to 40 miles per hour. so this is going to feel a whole lot better for the spectators and the runners alike. milder but cloudier, the high getting up to 66 when we get that sun in the afternoon. by monday limited sun because we'll have a system off to our south.
we'll have to watch and see if by monday night. check out this temperature november. it's going to feel more like late september. accuweather forecast, cloudy, 50. over at citi field 52 for first pitch with a light wind. 66 for tomorrow, clouds and some sun. 50s at the start of the marathon. mostly cloudy tomorrow night. down to 55. tomorrow there could bea sprinkle in the morning, mainly north and west of the city. monday 64. check this out. unbelievable for november. low 70s. tuesday, wednesday, thursday, wall-to-wall sunshine. maybe a few more clouds bey next weekend with temperatures in the upper 60s. 10 to >> good job. >> thanks. >> laura behnke next with sports. >> all right, a little story going on right now. the mets knew they dug themselves into a hole to start this world series. tonight a chance to give

what we find out tonight. last night the mets do get on the board. now down in the series two games to one after that big win, the mets now have momentum on their side as they come back here tonight for game four. batting practice late tonight at citi field. game four is the pivotal game for teams that trail 2-1. the royals know bert than any team that it can be done. they led the giants 2-8 last year only to watch san francisco win it all. an uphill battle, you bet, but at least now it is a battle. mets hope to use last night's win. >> we still have a lot of games to play. i don't think we're any higher or any lower. i didn't sense anything more last night than a game that we won that we needed to win. i think now they're talking today, hey, this becomes the biggest game in the world series for us. >> our coverage of the world series game four continues. laura behnke, back to you. >> tonight after the game,
as for last night's big win, it was noah syndergaard who finally got the best of that royals' feisty lineup. at odds, the first pitch of the game. cinder guard sent a message showing he's not afraid to pitch high and inside. he never actually hit anyone. the royals, though, still did not appreciate it, so thor had a message. >> certainly wasn't trying to hit the guy, that's for sure. i just didn't want him getting too comfortable fcht they have a problem with me throwing inside, then they can meet me 60 feet six inches away. i got no problem with that. now to the news that has nothing to do with the world series. the islanders crossing over new jersey for halloween hockey. a little spooky. rebound bouncing to bobby farnham. the islanders would even it up.
devils on the power play but the islanders the odd man rush. devils twin shoot-out. it's rutgers second season, but the first keep on coming. today another as the scarlet knights made their first trip to camp randall on a rainy day in madison. 4th and 8, so you go for it. well, that happens. 31 yards made it 17-3 badgers. ran for 115 yards and three touchdowns. 48-10. badgers roll. syracuse looking for its second acc win. florida state not interested in that. after the orange struck first the seminoles had this answer. rudolph muscles his way in for the touchdown. we go to the third. mcgwire with another one of his three touchdown passes. this one to rudolph again. 35-14. 45-21 your final as syracuse falls.
prove any more, but, hey, why not. the triple crown win hear raced twice, shockingly losing at saratoga. he wasn't about to go quietly at the breeders country. that's the american pharoah we know, destroying competition for the stung win. >> he can run. thank you laura. that is the news. thank you for joining us.
