yorkers, many who live close by who were intrigued that this normal construction site can tell a very historical story. >> new york is full of history. i guess it makes it even more rich. >> it's new york and underground. it makes a construction site a little more interesting, i guess. >> reporter: so what are they going to do with the coffins and remains? we're told they're actually just going to stay right there. archaeologists are going to collect their information, and then they're going to be continuing thai piping, but around this historical site. live near gingrich village tonight, brynn gingras, new york. >> fascinating. eve y so often. we think we know everything about new york but every so often the city does give up secrets. >> so much to be discovered. let's talk about our weather. >> stunning today. every day since the start of the week, we've had unbelievably warm and fantastic weather. and we've still got a couple more days to go with the 70-degree temperatures. just a slight change tomorrow
that is coming our way. right now, though it's not here yet. except a few clouds have moved in, and you're seeing some patchy fog near the jersey shore. temperatures across the area right now are in the 50s and 60, or mainly the 50s. it's just below 60 degrees in the city right now. a little cooler, a little bit of a breeze tonight coming in. but still mild overall compared the to what the averages are. some patchy dense fog at the jersey shore. you may see that continue for the rest of the night and early in the morning. the changes that are coming are not really with the temperatures. it's with the moisture there is a little bit of a rain coming our way for tomorrow and into friday morning. and record-breaking temperatures possible on friday. we're still expecting that around the area. as a warm front lifts north and a southwest breeze kicks in, and the temperatures go into the 70s, maybe even come close to 80 in some areas inland on friday. but then a cold front comes through friday night and then the temperatures are back to average. back to november weather coming this weekend. but still nice.
the low 50s across much of long island from the hamptons, over towards farmingdale. you're in the 40s right now. 52 in bridgeport. 54 in long branch. and that's where we're seeing the low visibility towards belmar at zero right now. a quarter mile in trenton. this area where we're seeing the moisture bubble up from, from the south with the system that is over the midatlantic tonight. not a lot of heavy rain with it. but we can see those sprinkles just moving past d.c., up towards baltimore and towards our area. so we're not talking about heavy rain, but just a slight chance. you may not even need an umbrella tomorrow. but you may want the take one along just in case. you can see it clouds over pretty well by tomorrow morning. and the sprinkles and light showers come through around midday. and they're really spotty. it's mainly the clouds that are here. we may see some heavier showers on friday morning. those move out. and then we get a break. and that's when it really warms up around 3:00, 4:00 on friday afternoon is when the temperatures are expected to soar across the area. so we'll be watching that carefully.
in the meantime, tomorrow we're still expecting 70 or higher. there will be more clouds around. and like i said, one or two showers. but the air mass itself is still the same air mass that is with us. and then friday the record high is 74. and we'll be very, very close in central park. cooler by the weekend. >> thank you, janice. >> janice is bringing the heat. >> the knicks travel to cleveland to try to make it three in a reon the road. but the king had other ideas. we've got some amazing lebron highlights just ahead. and don't be surprised if jason pierre-paul is on the field sunday to help a desperate giants defense. we'll hear from jpp in just a
